There can be hidden meaning in a medical term

"A name maybe more than it seems Mezin teric added. Nitis sounds awful. It's exactly the type of disease name that might explain why they're going to miss work or not be able to do your chores around the yard or even wash the dishes tonight. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion. In fact, the term Mezin teric adn Itis is a medical term for swollen abdominal glands, but it really means a small tummy ache. I am constantly reminding my medical students to avoid using technical terms and speak English with their patients. But there are times when a we bid of technical language can be validating, for example, this week Nicole saw me because she'd been sick for forty eight hours with nausea and vomiting. She felt horrible touring those two days she called into work sick whale. Her. Office Astra for doctor's note, a sort of archaic vestige of the past so she needed come in seamy, which meant she needed to get dressed driving her car pay for parking pay for co payment, wait in the waiting room. So that she could now spread the disease to others. Then after seeing me she would leave with nothing other than a doctor's note. And the reassurance that she'd get better soon and my advice to stay well hydrated. Will that isn't exactly all I told her I told her she had Mezin Terek at night and she loved it. She wrote the name down. So she could tell her book group who work colleagues and people at the gym she expected, it would help people who might doubt that. She was sick understand that it was a real thing. The words would give her symptoms legitimacy, and maybe even engender sympathy from others, however, the labeling of minor symptoms as a disease. He's like Hella is for bad breath or restless legs syndrome for periodic twitching or female sexual dysfunction for person who doesn't wanna have sex has some serious downsides and even more worrisome sign that should raise all kinds of red flags is when it disease was developed by drug company to help market a particular product like female sexual dysfunction to market Viagra to women or listerine to market to people with bad breath. And then there are new disease names that serve to medical is what is actually normal for example, we have prediabetes pre hypertension Prediman. Shia. In fact, I hate to tell you this. But we've all got a case of pre death. A name can have a powerful effect on how we see ourselves and manager bodies. Sometimes that means taking our health more seriously. But too often the intent. Ended goal of names is to market and sell pharmaceutical drugs, Nicole left, my office feeling validated. And understood and there were absolutely no prescriptions for any drugs, given just a name of a disease written on a small piece of white paper. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion.

Morgellons: A Tiny Bug or a Big Delusion?

"Today a special extended edition of sixty second sight. More gallons a tiny bug or big dilution. If, you haven't yet seen a patient with more galveston jerome. It's a good guest. You soon will the disorder was named in two, thousand, two by Mary Lee Auto, a former lab technician who son complained of bugs under his skin. She had gone to numerous specialist diagnosed delusional parasite hostess or even Munchhausen's by proxy frustrated Mary, dug into the medical history and found reports from sixteen fifty six by Thomas Brown who described a condition he called more gallons were children broke out with harsh black hairs on their back. Since Mary had found multicolored fibers in her son sewers, she adopted the name more gallons and created a website and foundation that attracted thousands of followers. A few years later, her foundation lobbied Congress and the CDC to investigate. With the help of celebrities like Hillary Clinton and Joni Mitchell the singer songwriter, not the presidential candidate identifies as a more gallon sufferer. Patients with this syndrome experienced crawling, biting and stinging sensations in their skin. They present dermatologist with skin lesions like rashes or sewers and complain of fibers emerging from their skin. Often they brings ziplock bags with skin samples and the fibers in them. Most dermatologists believed that these are just clothing fibers that got embedded in the skin from self-imposed scratching and sewers and studies at the Centers for disease control the CDC and the Mayoclinic have concluded the same thing finding that these fibers are cotton origin. A, big turn in the more gallons history was two, thousand twelve when the CDC released their negative report. At that point, merrily auto retreated from public life and the website transitioned other hands as did the foundation. But a small group of. Researchers took up the mantle of more gallons. The main players here are randy why more a pharmacologist at Oklahoma State University for Jinya. Ginger. Savagely. A family nurse Practitioner Raphael Stricker, an internist and California and Marianne Middle Wien, a veterinarian microbiologist and Canada. Their argument is that these fibers are not fragments of clothing but are part of an inflammatory reaction in the skin to a spear. A site infection. Spirit sites are the spiral shape family of bacteria that includes syphilis as well as the controversial bacteria that causes lyme disease. Virginia Savvy carved out a specialty in lyme disease and published a paper with Dr Stricter claiming that ninety seven percent of the more gallons patients they saw tested positive for Borelli. Ah, the spirit site that causes lime disease. This caught the attention of Dr Middle. Wien. The veterinary microbiologist who looked into the fibers concluded they were not made of cotton, but rather of Carrollton and Collagen and that they are most likely produced by the epithelial cells in the skin. But why would the skin start producing these fibers Dr Middle Wien hypothesized that it was a reaction to spear site infection. But what about the fact that these fibers were multicolored like clothing Dr, middle? Wien explained that they were mainly blue and that that was due to Melanin. And she admitted there was some clothing and Dustin other materials mixed in. One problem with this research is that they used their own criteria to diagnose lime disease, and that greatly inflates the diagnosis in one of their studies. They found ninety percent rate of lyme disease in more gallons patients, but the rate was only ten percent when the CDC criteria were used. You'll see this discrepancy of definitions in your own practice when patients often present with the diagnosis of lyme disease made by an alternative medicine provider often explaining the psychiatric symptoms that they've come to you for. Rather than taking sides on this issue, I'll suggest that these patients look at both sides of the controversy and make up their own minds. Quack Watch gives them more skeptical view of overblown medical claims and has a good section on lyme disease to refer them to. The other problem with most of these papers supporting the infectious cause of more gallons is that they come from a small group of researchers only one of whom is a physician. And some of them have struggled with scientific ethics Dr striker was accused of falsifying data by the National Institutes of Health in Nineteen ninety-three. He had published a paper earlier in the New England Journal of Medicine where he claimed to have identified an antibody to the HIV virus that was unique to homosexual patients. He later retracted the paper the tobacco caused Dr striker to lose his post at UC San Francisco. One set loose from academia. He tried out new pursuits including directing a peanut enlargement clinic before starting a Lime Disease Specialty Center in San? Francisco. Dr Striker has published many of the articles on the line more gallons connection along with nurse practitioners that he employs starting with ginger. Savagely. Miss Savvy came to work with Dr striker after being reprimanded by the State of Texas for practicing outside the standards of care in her Lime Disease Specialty Clinic there where she placed patients on long term antibiotic therapy for a reported five hundred dollars a visit. Later in two thousand eleven comma Harris who was then Attorney General California and now a vice presidential candidate publicly reprimanded Miss Savvy for similar problems. For medication the sensation of bugs crawling under the skin is a symptom, not a disease. Today. All of the attention on the Internet focused on more gallons, many patients with form occasion or self diagnosing with this controversial illness. But. It's likely that formation is due to many causes in psychiatric practice. The number one you WANNA look out for is dopamine stimulants. Cocaine are the most common cause. But also look out for other dopaminergic like Med for restless legs syndrome, Prima Paxil, or even era pip resolve the partial agonists or be appropriate in the mid-afternoon Hills which have mild dopaminergic effects. Remember that many of these patients may have real skin disorders and delusional parasite sis on top of it. Just as many patients with pseudo seizures actually have genuine seizures as well. But the first thing to do when a patient presents with skin lesions that are unexplained fibrous strands and the feeling of bugs crawling under their skin is to establish a working alliance. That's not an easy feat in these cases and it's one that Michael Pasternak tackled in this Mondays podcast. Next try to lower down any DOPAMINERGIC agents and finally consider an antipsychotic. Tim Assad used to be the treatment of choice here but it's fallen out of favor to cardiac risks with the q t see that are more pronounced and people who are form Tab allies irs at Cyp two D six. In this month's Carl at report review all of the PHARMACOLOGIC and non pharmacologic options for delusional disorder.

Appreciate it. Awesome. It is winner if the week time. I did miss this. Our winner of the week this week and you probably of seeing these commercials on TV because they've been playing a lot lately lately. It's Michael Phelps. Okay Yep. Okay. So he has his doing commercials for promoting therapy and online therapy service. which I don't know about the service. So but but the big thing that why Michael Phelps is the winner is he's talks a little bit and I went and did. I did a deep dive on Youtube regarding this his. His challenges, let's say. so He'd want eighteen gold medals on top of the world and he went into this I think it was a couple of months. He just stayed in bed. He just wanted to this deep depression and he said, I just I need to find help. So he went and saw therapist. And after the fact, now that he's promoting this online therapy service, he saying that decision saved his life. In the reason I wanna say that he's a winner of the weakest people don't seek help they resist for whatever reason they think they shouldn't need help or or they're embarrassed to get help. But if somebody like Michael Phelps. Again the guy has was on top of the world. And you know everybody benefits from talking to someone and I say this declines that come into my office for the first time. I say it delicately but I say listen everybody's screwed up everybody has things they can fix and work on. So everyone should be talking to someone. So I i. really like these commercials because again he's a high profile person who said, you know what does the this is what I needed to do and it helped him and again he said it saved his life. So for those of you out there who are considering therapy for whatever reason you know don't don't wait just just make the decision and do it and You know make those changes now rather than later you're gonNA feel better. So that why Michael Phelps is our winner of the week. In that guys don't of winning his life to. Eighteen gold mass you know that young and That type of an accomplishment you know, where do you go next to and you know that's probably a lot of the reasons why he just Fall into one. Interesting, you brought that up because there's a series I believe it's on Netflix's right now. I'm not going to remember the name. But it is about Olympic athletes who struggle with mental illness after because they train their whole lives four three minutes at a time and whether they succeed or whether they a gold medal or they don't. Some of them will have that one chance, and then it's done and even the even the successful ones your your time is limited even if you go to multiple Olympics. But afterwards it's kind of like, okay. What do I do now? Right right. You've reached the pinnacle. At that young age, which is mostly the young age get. So a lot of them have let down in out. At some point, I'll look up the name of that show because it's very interesting. It's about athletes struggling with life after the Olympics. Yeah. Very interesting. So today talk about struggling. Today. We're going to going to be talking. About Insomnia. Now. I say the word insomnia and almost everyone that's listening is probably like Oh. Yeah. I've had insomnia in probably some of us have had issues sleeping here and there. when when I say insomnia and I don't WanNA classify really gets into semantics but you know having a night or two of sleepless nights. There's some people who go months and months without getting more than a couple hours sleep a night. And that chronic insomnia is what we're kind of focusing on is how to make changes for that. There is that clip I played right after our intro that is from a movie called the machinist. That's what the Christian bishop bail. Yes. Yup, and again it's it's it's it's really a psychological thriller in a way. Great Movie I. Loved it but but it's him just struggling and. You know in the movie, of course, which is which is. Fiction, it's made up but in in the movie, he starts hallucinating and seeing things and not knowing people are real and. Even though is a fiction in a movie. That's that's what can happen with insomnia. You can start experiencing these symptoms of psychosis because your brain's not functioning your body's not. Resting and recovering it really has a major effects on on how you feel and your in your physical health. So I'm GonNa Start with just right off the Bat I WANNA I WANNA make sure that we clarify what how insomnia fits into sleep disorders because there can be any number of sleep disorders. One would be narcolepsy, which again is a is a diagnosis able issue. And that's that's when you just have extreme fatigue at any time and could fall asleep. You know while driving while you're doing pretty much anything. In. Very severe cases you could be standing and walking and just you know your body just shuts down go to sleep. Another sleep disorders restless legs syndrome are less. Are Less which again can compete keep people awake and that's that's a very frustrating condition. One of the biggest ones that people don't address is sleep apnea. And I'm not going to go into the whole medical explanation but but really what sleep apnea is is your. Your throat closes the back Palette of your throat relaxes and closes your airway so that you stop breathing. and. That could happen hundreds of times a night. But you never come. You never really come awake. Sometimes you can wake up sometimes you could not realize it and you're just sitting on the edge of sleep the whole night you never get into that room state where your body really recovers and rebuilds itself. So I always tell my clients were having issues sleeping and general chat for sleep apnea because it is something that can be controlled with either with medication surgery or most cases a CPAP machine, right? Yeah. And just to be totally transparent I use one I've had one for about. I don't know eight years now, best friend I was just telling you about earlier. He wears one as well right and. In typically, and again, this is not being critical I typically don't fit the what you would think of somebody was sleep apnea because most people might think all somebody's really overweight or they. Really, wait as one of the big driving factors of that but it can physiology it can happen to anybody at any weight. So if you're having issues being tired and not sleeping well. SLEEP APNEA could be to blame it, and that really has a long term effect especially on your heart because. When you stop breathing your heart speeds up to to to catch up. And engine that resetting itself hundreds of times during the night. Yeah. So they can have long term issues and then are finally we get to the the sleep disorder that we're going to focus on which is insomnia and before you do that yeah. The name of that documentary you're talking about with Michael fell out there's actually on Hbo Okay It's an HBO documentary and it's called the weight of Gold Da there we go. Yeah. I for some reason. I thought it was Netflix's but yeah, that is the night in goal Netflix's one that's about the gymnastics, Larry Nassar. Yeah, yeah. So yeah check that out if you're interested in seeing how these athletes cope after the Olympics, I haven't watched I. Know My wife as 'cause she was raving about it but I have not seen yet. Let's get into, insomnia? In I'm just GONNA. Kinda just give you an overview insomnia really as it's characterized by an inability to initiate or maintain sleep. That's kind of the simplistic definition of it. It may you also may awaken early in the morning and the not be able to go back to sleep. You might not be able to once you're awake it's hard to go back to sleep sometimes In really. It has a lot of the same effects that sleep apnea would you're not sleeping? Well, at night you're going to be tired during the day if you're not getting in, here's what the recommendation is and I'm GonNa just throw this out, and then we're GONNA come back to it. For most adults. Age, let's say eighteen and over at least seven hours a night is what is recommended and So if you're not getting that because you're you're unable to then there's an issue that's something we need to look at and help you address. Let. Me Just throw out a few statistics approximately in four Americans develop insomnia each year about thirty percent of American. Dulce have symptoms of insomnia. Up to ten percent of American adults are life likely to have chronic. Insomnia. Lows lost productivity related to insomnia cost the US economy about sixty, three, billion dollars a year. Eighty three percent of those who suffer from depression also experienced symptoms of insomnia. In and you can imagine why if you're not sleeping on, you're always tired in that's GONNA how productive or You're not going gonNA feel great about yourself and what's going on. Speaking of the seven hour sleep. We probably all know and maybe maybe some of you are one of those people who is constantly moving constantly working and pushing themselves and the the whole. That whole theory of that type person who only sleeps three hours a night because they have so much stuff to get done. In really that. Theft in some ways that's looked at like, wow that that's somebody who's really dedicated. That's that's what I want be or that's how I want to do, and I want to be that committed to something. But the problem with that is you really you really doing yourself a disservice and I'm going to refer to Ariana Huffington who was the founder of the Huffington? Post? She put out a book couple years ago. Might have been a little longer I read it on a plane. Because I was trying to. But the name of this book is called the Sleep Revolution. In she recounted. How she lived she would have her phone by her bed. She would whenever the phone, she would pick it up and work an answer emails or texts. No matter what time no matter what time and the name and and she would push yourself a yet. She was running running a a website in a news. Service and all of those things. So she said she was averaging at at the worst in that that stretch about three to four hours a night. Wow. In she one day was standing in her kitchen and. Just. collapsed. Just went down. Hit her head on account or going down ended up getting a number of stitches in her head. And it kind of is was her. No Pun intended her wakeup call right because she said I can't keep doing this. So if if if you want to read about her experience, it really is it's on a tough read, but but it really kind of lays out kind of the way people have. They treat sleep like it's not necessary like okay. I have better things to do than sleep. Or. I need to get this done. So I'll stay up late and sacrifice a few hours. Which I get. You know it's it's every once in a while you know at that. That's legit. Right but every day and. That's In the whole theory that okay I have a busy week I'll catch up on the weekends there really is no way to catch up on sleep. No, you can't bank it for later use because every night is different and you may you may end up staying up late to couple nights in a row and sleep all day that third day. But I'm talking about consistently doing this day after day if there's there's no way you're gonNa make that it just it just doesn't work that way way when your body's accustomed to waking up at a certain point in the morning or in the afternoon depending on your work schedule. If it's a wake, your your brain is way guess what it's usually you're ready to roll ready to rock so. Again with insomnia sometimes, there's no reason for it and you could you might. You might maybe you'll have an hour in all of a sudden. Your eyes pop open in your wide awake you know. Three odors raising. Yeah just happens. And you're you're just awake and it's impossible to go back to sleep. So we're going to bring this back that that then insomnia is a is a is an issue as an issue for a lot of people. But I want to reframe it because it's it's it's easy to put put yourself in the victim role of that saying all man I've terrible insomnia I'm just There is something you can do about it. There is there are things that you can take control of this. Because what insomnia. Is In can be physical and we're going to address those as we go along but but for the most part is not being able to shut your brain off. Which we talk about this on the show all the time. It's a habit. It's a habit that's been ingrained in your subconscious thinking, and that's what happens. When that that habit just goes without being unchecked or without being checked then it's just going to continue to do what it's always done. And if that means, you know you sleep well because your brain is used to that, that's what it's going to do. So. There's an old trick and it's this this. This goes back on me and I don't know where actually do know where it came from because I looked it up but you know the whole the whole the whole theory of counting sheep. That's that's been in. You know I don't know culture for a long time. In never really came from something it came from medieval Britain. Shepherds who wanted to use communal grazing lands. They had to keep a close headcount of their sheep and they use the special counting system to make sure they had them all and they would do this right before they went to bed. Okay. So that's where this counting sheep thing came from because they would do it. And then go to bed so it's their fault. Yeah it's their fault. So but let me talk about that because it sounds like a silly and it's become character caricature is. You, see it in. You see in cartoons you see in. Commercials and just just it's kind of. A Just kind of a like a wives tale just kind of this cliche. But think about this what the reason it became a cliches because some point somebody was using it. Some somebody coined it because it was effective. And if you think about what that action does counting sheep. Gives you a repetitive thinking pattern where you're just focusing on one sheep after another and what you're doing is you're you're you're. Focusing your brain in not to think about a million things at once but just about the single thing. and. I i. read a couple of different story study I. Don't think there have been real world scientific studies but a lot of anecdotes about people saying. Yeah. You know when I count sheep go to sleep I've never gotten I've got to one hundred. Which is interesting. It is for some people say oh yeah. I I I. Don't remember I never remember where I left off because I finally you know eventually fell asleep. At. It's we're going to get into specifically how to do that with unless you want to count, she could do that. I mean, if you like sheep that's cool. Thing. You ever smell. Say I was thinking of what is she put smelling? So. What we're going to talk about is. Refocusing your routine in your brain? This is the tough part for people because like anything else. This you would think, oh I, if I just shut my brain off, that should be it should be easy. Precious be able to do it. How do you do? Yes and that's that's the key thing. and. You have to put some work into it. It's it's I. I always refer back to. MONKS WHO MEDITATE Course. Some of the beliefs are you know if you can reach Nirvana at some point if you get good with that? But. It's not something that you can just sit down and be at that level. I compare it to meditation to like Yoga or any other activity you have to work up to it. You have to practice shift you better at it and thinking is the same way whether it's thinking about something or not thinking about something. And here's what typically happens with people with insomnia. Before they even get to bed there already worried. They're already thinking. Oh I hope I can sleep tonight I hope I. Hope at least three or four hours in. Their mind is setting themselves up for that disappointment. Even if they're sleeping, they wake up. The mind automatically. says. That was it I guess I'm done. Then, your mind is active again. So, you're not. You're not setting yourself up for success and I know that puts some a lot of responsibility on you to listener. But if you're serious about this, you can make the changes you need to. So I'm GonNa, talk about sleep hygiene. I don't know if you've ever heard that term. I have not. Okay. Sleep hygiene is things that you do before you go to bed. To. Increase the likelihood you can shut your brain off. Okay if that makes sense. Okay, and we all know when I look at the when I read through the is like dominoes you do one thing the next thing and the next thing. Okay. In a lot of these people might scoff a little bit because it's like, oh, I can't do that. But but if you do these things, it's only going to help you and if you have to commit to these things. Curious to what going to be yes. So the first one is keep a regular sleep schedule. Go to bed at the same time every night and get up at the same time. Every morning doesn't matter if it's a weekend doesn't matter of occasion I understand once in a great while your schedule may get thrown off for a day or night. Sure. But. You have to keep a regular sleep schedule because when when when you get that scheduled down, your mind is trained. Trained and and like you mentioned earlier Matt. How many of us wake up at six am on Saturday because that's what time we get every day your minds. Your reminds trained to do that. So, on the same way, we need to trade train it when to go to sleep every night at the same time. So, keep a regular sleep schedule. And this one, this one is going to. This one was going to come out a lot of people. Are you. The young parents there for that. I wasn't there like seriously. Bedroom is for sleep and sex. Okay. That's it. You had been sleep right Those. Those are the only two things using your bedroom for. And I know that that for people who liked to go in the bedroom and watch TV or hang out. It you're you're training your mind to be active in the room you're supposed to be sleeping. In, these these sound, very simplistic. But but this you have to if you if you put these things in place, your your. Your likelihood of succeeding is GonNa be way much more. So the bedroom is for sleep and intimacy only. When you're when you're in your bedroom, you should not have TV on and electron available or even close. Again I know people their phones right by most people use their phone as their alarm just. But if unless you shut off notices an might be digging all night or In People's minds. It's just like Pavlov's dog when that Ding happens your mind is automatically turned on because you want to see what's there right and that's what you do during the day, which is great because that's what should do during the day. You don't want to be doing that at night. So incredibly guilty over here. In a lot of people are not not necessarily intentionally I just think it's just habits that we built that maybe we don't realize how much they're affecting us too. So that can happen and when it's not, you know we're. We're not reinventing the wheel here you know. Come on guys. It's so simple. Maybe you need a refresher course. All vulgar right now. Maybe, we need a refresher course. So your your bedroom is for sleep only and sex. Train yourself to recognize that in. Don't again don't have any electronics. If you have a TV, it's not on, I wouldn't even put a TV in the bedroom. I don't have a TV in my bedroom and I'm not judging people who do just saying it just it's another way that you can distract yourself from what the bad is. Forest Asleep. Again common sense tips here is stimulus such as caffeine afternoon. Also avoid alcohol now. We all know alcohol can can get us to sleep, but it never ends up being a good sleep. Yeah I have a clock. Yeah. In typically, alcohol can disrupt your sleep patterns because because it's messing your system up. One hour prior to bed time begin a relaxation. Activity or routine. Let's call it a routine. So that means no watching TV for an hour before no reading. Anything on a blue light, which would be your phone computer. IPAD things like that reading is fine. If you're doing it off of an actual book like a like one of those kill whites that's not that's not a blue light except blue light activates are vision in our mind and it. Causes you not, to. Relax. So again, focus on just being calm, quiet instill, and again with people with kids I it's a challenge but these are things that you need to do for yourself. Read a book. Listen to music. Just sit quietly in that hours your prep time before going to bed at your bedtime. And when you go to bed. There are deep breathing exercises and I'm going to give you one quickly before we run out of time, and this is really common one. Taken a slow deep breath through your nose. Count to eight. As you're breathing in like make the breath last eight seconds. It goes in hold that breath for at least five seconds and then slowly exhale through your mouth while counting to ten. Just repeat that cycle over and over again because that breathing and this is the part of hypnosis as well. We we make people breathe deeply and slowly, and the same thing happens when you go to sleep at night. You're it's of like you're manually kick-starting that sleep process with this breathing that also doesn't uh slow down your heart rate when you do that price. So it really that your body's relaxing itself exactly exactly and again that's kind of a like I said if. It should happen naturally, but sometimes a dozen and that's why we put these things into effect. Now I know I went through this list fairly quickly. But what I wanted in the show notes there's going to be a link for my hypnosis for insomnia recording. You can you can get that on my website at my on my website store, but this will walk you beat because sometimes it's hard to to relax on her own. It's hard to stay motivated are focused to do that. But if you're listening to it, I can direct you. It's easier to follow something then tried to initiate something sometimes. So. Talk or check out the link in the show notes for my hypnosis for insomnia recording and give that a try Iraq on you try it for. Five six seven days in a row and in if you if you get that down, you're going to start that new habit and it's going to click in in. It'll be natural after that. So. I. Know We cover this very quickly as we go just leave me comments. If you want to talk more in depth about this, absolutely, we can do that. Because I, think that's a this is something a lot of people struggle with and would love to have you know maybe a more detailed. Deep dive on it. So let me know. So we going to be back next episode. It's got kind of a fun one. We're GONNA talk about speaking of sleep ten movies about sleep. Now, my. Favorite movies about sleep. All right. So come on back that'll be interesting and a bit fun.

Assisted living daily with the mock with twenty it's. It's tomorrow. This is the daily show. This is. Take take a C. Take a see. You guys are amazing our guest tonight baseball legend and co owner of the Miami Marlins, Derrick. Jeeter says. Chatting to him later on. But I can I just say that I'm loving everything about this city. It is my first time here spending time, and I'm knowing everything about like every day is a party in Miami. Like every day. It doesn't matter where you go. I went to a church service the other day, and they never choir. They had a DJ who's the dope is like do unto others others others other than. Jesus Dard for your sins. Premium six in the morning. We praise. I don't know if it's just me. But I feel like I feel like everybody out. Here's excited about the midterms. You guys excited? Can feel that energy. You know who else is really excited? Donald trump. Oh, wow. Wow. You guys sound like a room full of Milanez. Wow. Anyway, just just like you President Trump knows that the midterms only seven days away. And so it's motivates his voters, right? He's he's doing something really special. It was the thing that he does best. He scaring the shit out of his voters specifically by using Brown people. It's sort of like Halloween, but racist Halloween or as Megan Kelly calls at Halloween and. And so every day. Trump's number one focus has been the caravan. Right. I don't know if you've seen this. And if you don't know the caravan is basically, a group of a few thousand people who will walk into the United States from impoverished and crime ridden countries like Honduras, and Guatemala, and they walking to the US, partly as a protest and partly to apply for asylum in the better life. And then it's it's it's tough journey. They've got no food. They've got no water. There's nowhere to bathe. It's basically like burning men except the people on pretending to be poor. You know what I'm saying? Like a group of people who are saying to America. Hey, we're in trouble. Can you help us and Trump has responded with this? The US military said today, it's sending more than five thousand active duty troops to the Mexican border to deal with a caravan of central Americans who intend to seek asylum here fifty two hundred troops actually outnumbering the roughly four thousand migrants making up that caravan and nearly equaling the number of US personnel, fighting ISIS in Iraq, really Trump is sending the same amounts of troops to deal with asylum seekers as he sent to fight ISIS. That was going to be so weird for the troops. We like one guy token to another is like I'm headed to Iraq to stop violent death cult from destroying civilization. Where are you going? It's like I'm going to try them. It's a baby to crawl self. Yeah. Just switch around. Even worse is that Trump is sending more troops than they are migrants. Right. So the truth can basically pay man on man defense. You know? He's like, okay. You get one. I'll get Jose. I'll take those lady come on come on come on come on come on fast. You've got my legs got having a winner. Are you gonna sit ball? And now, and now just just a real on the same page these people on illegal anything, right? They're planning to apply for asylum. Once they get to the US border. Right. It's not like they're just going to rush across the border like a giant game of red Rover. That's not what what's going to happen. All that would be super dope. Can we admit that though, we super dope? Yeah. Like, in fact, instead of having a border wall Americans just have a truth holding hands at the border, right? And then the immigrants run, and if they break through citizenship, I think that's a fair game. I'm watching that. So. I don't know about you. But I'm watching that show. This summer on NBC. It's red Rover citizenship shin. Sorry. This is just ridiculous instead of sending five thousand troops to the border. Why don't send five thousand judges and lawyers to help with the asylum process? What some of the truth? Anything would make more sense than sending five thousand troops. I like, it wouldn't even make more sense. If Trump was just like, you know, what America's just going to turn off the lights and pretend no one is home. That would even make more sense. Just like everyone be quiets. Trump would miss that up. Everyone will be quiet and they'd be like, we're not here. Mike Pence told me to say we not here. And now, I think the reason Donald Trump is sending troops to these asylum seekers instead of help is because in his mind, this is an invasion, and when I say in his mind what I mean is on Fox News thousands upon thousands of migrants literally marching to the US, and what would be a mass invasion in order to demand entry this migrant caravan. It's not a caravan. It's an invasion. Here's a mob of humanity driving towards the US southern border. This looks a lot like an invasion, it's an actual, invasion, invasion. Dow's and thousands of people in the bridge when you looked at that bridge loaded up with people that's called an invasion of our country, really an invasion kata here, man. Invasion. Let me ask you this. Let me ask you this. We ask you this. What kind of invaders apply to come in and give the enemy three months warning? What kind of invasion is that? Like, I'm missed the history class. We're Paul reveal was like the British are common. But not until like April. Okay king. Georgia's wanted me to tell you guys in advance because he does you guys are like super busy. Okay. This is my problem. Prob- problem with all the fear mongering. My big problem with the fear mongering about this caravan is that Trump and his friends, they don't even seem to know what they're afraid of the company with diseases such as smallpox and leprosy and TB that are going to people in the United States. The overwhelming the Georgia. You're young men in their twenties to strapping strong boycott HIV measles, pertussis, rebel rabies. Hepatitis A? Influenza TB shingle, oasis syphilis when you look at that caravan, and you look of largely very, you know, big percentage of men young strong a lot of bad people. That's rights. These migrants have both superstrong and riddled with disease. These are the strongest lepers of ever see. Coming across the border. Jack, Tom's falling off in the streets. Make up your mind. And honestly, honestly, if I were the migrants, I would be worried about catching one of America's weird diseases in the should people have in this country, micro. And I'll be like, hey, man. I want a better life, but I don't know about America. I don't want to catch. Gluten intolerance, man. You hear their irritable bowel syndrome up there, man. Cousin went there. Two months later. He had restless legs syndrome, you can cue that shit. And now. No. I know. I know some of you right now asking me, you're going treble. Why do you even bother with Fox News? You know, who they are always bringing the brings on a phobia, they're bringing racism, and that's true. That is true. Because the thing I assume that some of them are good people. Because even though this network might seem like one giant caravan of dangerous extremists. I believe there are people in there who mean, well, the migrants, according to Fox News reporting or more than two months away if any of them actually come here, but tomorrow is one week before the midterm election. Which is what all of this is about there is no invasion. No one's coming to get you nothing at all. Now, that's a guy who deserves a silent. We'll be right back. Up next is an extended interview with our guest. But before we get to that g Swedish suite of cloud based productivity tools that includes g mail, docs, slides sheets and drive.

My guest tonight is the CEO and co owner of the Miami Marlins and of the players Tribune. And the turns who foundation please welcome five time we'll series champion and former New York Yankees, captain, Derrick. Judy. Wow. Oh, that's that's never happened to me. I need a role. I need a roll with you like people start hunting my name because that's never happened to me. We we may actually consider signing you to play for the Mars just to come in with the fan sports. Can you play position? I am the worst person in baseball like wherever the bull won't go. That's where you wanna put me. That's where you want me. But welcome to the show. Thanks for have. Let's let's let's get into it. I remember when I first came to the United States, I moved to New York, and Derek Geeta was a name that was to non-impact with everything amazing. I mean, you were crushing it your legend in baseball. You know, people still look at you and go like the greatest shortstop of all time, and you've taken on a different journey in your life right now. Because now you all behind team is a little bit frustrating. When when you know what you can do. And then like you watch the team sometimes you just want to go out there. Like is it hard for you to change your mind into being a CEO? You know, it is it is kind of difficult because you know, as a player, you are instant gratification or failure. Right. Either succeed or you don't you get a hit or you don't you win or you lose? And then you go onto the next game. But when you're in an ownership for an office role, you have to have patients, which I am learning. I have none. So it's very difficult at. Times to watch because you want things to happen. You know, very quickly. But look at takes time to time to build a championship caliber team and to build a first class organization. We will get there. But it does take a little bit of time. It's also. When I found particularly interesting is how quickly the media seemed to enjoy the what they termed downfall of Derek jeeter. I remember reading a headline that specifically said Derrick jeeter fails at something finally. And I was like it was weird that they said finally as they would have been waiting for you. But like you've been in a position where for a long time, you were the golden boy like nothing went wrong in your world hasn't been different for you to be on the on the receiving end of criticism has that has that shaped. How you see the Wilders has everything that you've done beforehand prepared you for this moment. Well, first of all, listen, I failed quite a bit in my career. So, you know, one thing you learn especially playing in New York you have to deal with criticism and criticism doesn't bother me motivates me. And you know, what people I think needed to understand as we're taking over an organization that had not been successful have now been in the postseason since two thousand and three and in my mind that makes it broken. So we need to fix it. So I look at it as a it's a challenge. But more importantly, it's an opportunity that I'm looking forward to it's an opportunity. And. tuneD that you've grabbed with both hands. Because what you've done is. You started shaping the team. You know, you've you've got into new prospects is victim victim. And then victim Mesa Mesa vista. I don't know how that works. I feel like twice which is very slick of you. We got three victors for the price too. But you bringing some amazing prospects you are reshaping the team. But this one of the things that you're doing that feel like they changing the dynamic of what the Marlins represents. For instance. You know, I read that you're changing what the end game experiences and something even more interesting is you've encouraged everybody on the team, including yourself to start learning Spanish why? Thank you. I think you know, when you have players Hispanic players that are coming into the United States, everyone automatically assumes that they speak English. And that's not always the case you're taking players out of their country. You bring him so United States. Your throw them in a new culture new environment. You expect them to speak your language now if they took well, we're in Miami. So most people speak Spanish, but if you took most Americans, and you threw them in a Hispanic country, and you expect speak Spanish, they would struggle little bit, right and people are judging them, and I don't necessarily think that's fair. So we're making sure that our educational program with the organization is first class where we're making sure that all of our Spanish, speaking Spanish, speaking player, speak English, but more importantly, one our American players to learn how to speak Spanish, and we're also doing that in the front office. The. The team baseball is just part of what you do your involved in multiple programs that all related to sport. But not sport itself you have. An organization that you started that turned into website that really has become a platform for many players many sports people to speak out. I guess share the themselves with an audience without anyone in the middle. No middlemen. No, no pressure. No, anybody and one of the more interesting articles that came out of this collective was Kevin love who shared his his battles with anxiety and depression was a powerful movement that that changed how a lot of people sports people in general, why was that so important to you? And what do you think the long term goal of this project is started the players Tribune? This is right after I retired in two thousand fourteen. It sounds strange to say two thousand four years already. I'm getting old you all my friend. It's showing it's showing everywhere while your face. You look twenty five a lot a lot of people are getting old to see somebody out there as well. But we started this the players Tribune because we felt as though look athletes are human there's a human side, and we're trying to humanize. Them half the have interests things that they they wanna share with the fan base. But I think anyone that says that the trust factor between the media and athletes, if you say that's not broken, then you're not being honest, and it's amazing what people will actually share if they trust who they're speaking to. So we've developed that trust with the athletes, and we have some amazing stories and people feel free and they trust us. And they talk about things that they normally wouldn't speak to with the media and therefore brings the fans closer to them. You have a lot of players in the stand as not just baseball who is speaking out about their political affiliations political beliefs as well. As we can see the NFL struggled with this many owners not knowing how to deal with. It's you have Colin Kaepernick was being affectively blackballed, you have conversations where people like will sports people should just shut up and dribble. And then people like LeBron James coming out and saying, no, I'm a human being. And I have opinions you have been both sides both the team ONA and the player. How do you think you work to balance the relationship between what people want sport to be which is devoid of politics and also still giving you your your your athletes voice? I think when you're an athlete you have a platform, obviously. And what you do with that platform, which which actually is, you know, everyone talks about your legacy on the field on the court. But I always felt as though it's more important to have a legacy off the field or off the court and athletes. Look, they have a very, yeah. Athletes. They have an opportunity. To actually be role models for kids and get out and speak their minds and one thing we've always done. I have a foundation that I started twenty two years ago. And we try to teach our young students that listen your voices are powerful and learn to go get out, speak your mind and be very comfortable doing that. So when you become an adult, you're comfortable doing in front of a bigger audience. So our foundation we've we're trying to make sure that our young people read reach their full potential by promoting leadership development academic excellence. Healthy lifestyles and social change, and your organization has been very successful. I found this out recently. It's called the turn two foundation. And you'll correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you've raised over twenty million dollars that you've awarded to these kids to get into schools to get into scholarships to get into programs that moving forward. And. And. Of all the kids you've meant. Would you have one hundred percent graduation rates? We have. I come from a family where if you have a little you give a little if you have a lot give a lot so philanthropy has always been very very important to me and my family growing up. And at the same time. It's it'd be very very important to the Miami Marlin organization moving forward because we have a platform here in Miami. And we should be able to give back and affect as many lives as we possibly can hear. I love Miami. I've been here for only a year now times, it seems like I've been for about twenty years, but I've only been here for a year. I love the diversity. I love the culture. I love the energy.

185: How Was London? | Ear Biscuits Ep. 185

"The ramble. Welcome to air biscuits. I'm Rhett and I'm link this week at the round table of dim lighting. We're asking the question. How was London how was it? And then we're answering that question because as of the recording of this. We are still pretty fresh off our trip to London England. United Kingdom Europe were offer long. I. Yeah. I still have jet lag. I still am. Well, are you waking up? I'm waking eight hours of us waking up like three AM like ready to go. And then I'm like don't get gotta go to sleep. Well, the thing that I'm noticing is at about seven o'clock at night, hit you get hit really hard with this like irritability that like I was out to dinner with the family, and they were all talking, and, you know, interact with one another which I mean that if that's your thing to families talk. It was not my thing at a time. I mean, I stopped at one point. I was like guys I just wanna tell you. We're halfway through the meal. I am so irritable. Right. It's feel like I could explode with irritability and dislike very testy. You know, this is kind of crazy 'cause you know, how it's manifested itself with me. Extreme restless legs, a dream restless like now, I have restless legs syndrome, and I think I thought about this before. But anyway, is this, you know, the irresistible urge to move and what was happening is. It was in my right leg started getting in my right hand, hold on. This is only when you're sleeping right now as it happens. When happens typically when you're trying to go to sleep, but what was happening which was so weird is that because of the jet lag. He was hitting me about seven thirty for me. So on Monday night. I was in my therapy appointment, and I started having it real bad. And like my leg was bounded up and down. And then my I've never had it in my arm, and some arm was also I was like moving around a lot. And my therapist was like your very uncomfortable with what we're talking about right now arch, and I was like, well, I mean, yeah. But it's because I got restless legs bra in my arm. And wrestles leg in your arm. And then why not call it restless arm, and then I don't know what that is in the next night. I went back to my therapist with my wife. It's a long story. Well, go into and. We just needed an emergency session, and it was actually great incredible session. But during that it happened again, I was just thinking about it should show me exactly what you were doing. Like my foot foot. I would be like this. And I'd be like, okay, your foot you. So you're just waggling your foot, but what about your arm? Okay. You got a fist you got one hand in a fist in your like grabbing it with your other just moving look very uncomfortable. I let like I'm squirming away out of something. And maybe I was like we get sent to the principal's office, but you have to wait outside and everyone's walking by going to lunch, and they see you sitting there. Yeah. And your like legs twitching, his his he's holding hands with himself, but just to be clear because a lot of people think, oh, I tat my leg. A lot. I must have that's not restless leg syndrome. So if you have a tendency to let out excess energy by bobbing, your your knee up Anneli that not restless legs, not the same thing. Restless legs is this. You only can explain it. If you have is this irresistible urge to move to the point that you feel like you're going to get so uncomfortable not to move. So it's not like the little thing us, Bob it up and down. And you know, we should on your worst enemy. I'm sorry. You have that. Right. Okay. Go ahead. I don't have never experienced it. I mean, I'm only I'm only imagining what it would be like just by hearing you describe it, right and undescribed such vivid way. You don't even need to watch the video version of this podcast in order to get all the course, maybe you do because I did I did a lot a lot of physical things second go pretty impressive. What you shook your foot and that wasn't even shot. But you saw they can see your face looking at me. Yeah. They can't why he on. And man, see, it's hitting you draw jet lag. I'm from London. Once I told them I was about to explode with irritability, then it actually helped and I didn't for the record separate yourself from it. You are not your emotions, but. They seem to not have heard me. It wasn't like they responded. Oh, thanks for sharing. They said that you they just kept talking. But it made me feel good to acknowledge that I had feelings instead of late in those feelings control me. Yeah. That's what I'm actually trying to do. And it's it was nice to know that it was jetlag. And then I'm not just a a jerk that doesn't wanna be around my family because I do because I thought something was going. I thought something was wrong with me. It was so intense, and it was just a no no you would be asleep right now. And you're not. Yeah. Yeah. Because seven seven PM fills like a C plus fifteen AM, which is three. There is no fifteen AM fifteen hundred hours would be three PM, right? It's fifteen AM is just the next day. We should change that is you just keep counting. They should count from the beginning of time. So we're should be what time it is. We've never been a London. So this podcast is going to be us sharing with you our. Our first ever experience in London except for being at the airport. I mean, we've been we've connected through the London airport, but we've never been in the land of London like out and about so we're gonna share those things with you. We were there for vid con and also for a concert that we played which was at the same venue. But was technically well, it was it was a part of a combat. It was a separate event separate ticket as well complicated. But it doesn't matter because it's over. And I was just looking at the pictures from the concert, and I was like man at lectures, really validates having done it. When you have cool looking pictures of it. We've got some pictures taken by it was a Nique is I yeah. Thank you. Nick. A knee mythical beasts doing the from Amsterdam came over and took some pictures of us. She took a lot of pictures. And and then she sent us what she deemed to be the coolest, and they are very cool posted one demise degrom. So lots of thoughts about London we'll get into all that. But I I just wanted to share. A story with you something that happened to me. I haven't shared when I got back from London. So a few days ago. I injured myself surprise. I just thought I would I would share with you loyal ear biscuit listener, and to you Rhett, loyal friend and irritable companion, so I get home. And I happened to mention to Chrissy. I gotta I'm gonna put my passport away. I'm a put back in the safe. I keep my passport in our fireproof safe. Which ultimately, I just think if there was a fire, we would I guess we'd grab the safe. But if we didn't maybe it would survive, but I don't know. It's like there's far proven its fireproof. I agree as true, I wouldn't grab it. His heavy is a lot of things is I'll get into. And she was like, oh, get my passport to because. I haven't put mine back in knows where we need to keep them in there. So go get hers, and the safe is not in the place that it used to be don't tell us where it's at because in and get it. I have to tell you. Okay. 'cause what's more important is me tone, the story than keeping secret where my secrets safe is. I a dummy safe. I gotta say that they'll take and they think that the got the safe whereas that one I'm not gonna tell you. Where's the real safe? Definitely not telling you that. Oh, he didn't fall for it this time, but you had already told me that it's under your bed. Isn't it? My can't fit under my bed, bro. You gotta big safe. Like how big is your dummy safe? I've seen your dummy safe. It's like you walk in the front door and his carry, but the real safe I can get into. What I've never told. You about the dummy safe is in in the front of your house just sitting there like somebody will thief, walks in your like Domi safe here. Says take me I'm dummy. I'm not a dummy. Safe says this free you have a walk in safe. On my talk about you getting hurt. Ironically, a walk in safe is not safe because you get locked in. Well, I'm not planning on lock myself into my safe is pretty small. It's like the size of four trapper keeper stacked on top of each other. It's got a lid on it. Anyway is not in the place that it used to be. And neither is Jade's dog. Kennel Jade is here with me today. Jay say Hello Jade, say Hello. I'm telling story about your your kennel, your cage. I don't like to call it a cage because it's her home when we're not at home and she likes it. It makes them feel secure to go in there. And more importantly, she doesn't pee your poop in it. Oh, so you so you you still put her in her crate while. Yeah. The because she will p poop in the house. She's got she part Dotson, and she's got she's the part that likes to sneak in P. Anyway, when Britain moved into our house, we converted the office into his bedroom. Read glorified closet, anyway, that's where we kept her kennel and were also kept safe, and I kept the printer. So then I'm like, I gotta find a new place to put our printer. I've moved all of that stuff. That's in that bigger room that he now sleeps in into the closet. That's underneath the stairs that lead up to my bedroom. So like picture like a Harry Potter kinda closet? You. Open the door to that closet. There's a like just put Britain in their thought about it. I didn't think about it. I was like, hey, if it's good enough or Harry. Jim someone write a song about. Have you been in this closet? You opened the door. You hit a light? So I didn't know it was there. It's next time. I'm going in though, when you open the door, you're looking down the staircase that like it goes, if you look straight ahead once you open the door, it it goes away from you to a it slopes down to a point. So you're not looking at it sideways where and sideways, you're at the tallest point. And then it sloping down to the floor when you open the door, and you open the door and matter of fact, it kinda slopes down. And then there's like a cubbyhole with that. I put stop yawning while I'm telling the story, boring men. I know your jet lag. But it's not good for my ego stories boring. So it slopes down in the architecture of this under the stairs it room. This is important architectures important to what happened. So you need to be able to visualize. This it slow you walk in by six feet tall it immediately slopes down to about two and a half feet tall where there's a cubbyhole that. I put the printer in oh say then in front of the printer. I put the safe in front of the printer. It's just a small safe for trapper keeper into the right? There's there's enough room for a bookshelf that has all of our board games that we use to keep him Britain's room. Oh boy. Four-game? And then so you can walk in and get to the printer of the safe. The board the board games in the safe. I don't have a walk in safe. I really value. Make this whole closet. A safe all my board games in my walk in. Shoots and ladders flammable. Vintage addition this it will be easy to get to the printer and to the safe except for the fact that the end of the last minute, I realized I didn't know where to put Jade's crate. So then I put it in right smack dab in the middle, and it fills basically the whole floor of the closet. So when I go in there to put the two passports that are in my hand into the safe. You gotta move the crate, but moving the crate is difficult because it's almost with of the door. So move the crater print. Yeah. Well, this is not sustainable what what you can do is. You can basically I can stand in front of the crate and bend over like hinge, then put my hand on the crate or somewhere, and then kinda reach and grab what are printed? That's worked a few types, easy, but the printers afoot higher than the safe. I didn't I didn't take into account that this is going to be more difficult. So I I'm standing there my shins against the front of Jade's crate, then I hint over and I realize I can't reach the safe. So what I do is a take my hand. And I extend out as far as I can and win the slope goes down it it it then goes vertical for a two by four. And then goes horizontal into the cubby hole where the printers, so there's a little two by four height where rest your hand arrest of my hand on that. And I like I'm pushing hard holding up my body weight with my right hand. And then I'm reaching down with my left hand to open the open the safe. And I realize well, I can't open the safe with my left hand. 'cause I got my left hand doesn't know the combination only my right? There's no combination. Oh, my safe is just for fire. He's not for deft. All you gotta do is push grab the handle push down on the safe grip. You don't have come in. No squeeze the handle. And then it will open my mind scans my before log in. I don't care. That's not true. But I mean, so then I'm like, I got a switch hands. So then I gotta get my right hand down there because the safe handles on the right side. And so put my left hand up there, and I take my right hand down. So now, I'm always maintained a point of contact. So now, I am my my whole upper body weight is being held up in my left hand. And then I reached down again, I have the passports in my hand. But then we're mouth three fingers. I'm going to grab the. Handle push down on the safe pick. It up all the way open the lid, and then I'm going to throw the things in and then I'm gonna close the lid, and then I'm gonna I'm gonna unhinged myself. And I'm gonna get out of there. Like, a proud, man. That's not how happened. So I'm holding myself up with my left hand, and I reached down to grab the open the safe, and I open the safe in the as the lid is coming up, and I'm trying to pull the lid up my left hand slides off of the two by four. That's holding my entire body weight up into the cubby. Yeah. It goes into air, and then I just start falling. So the live is up on the safe. My hand is in a free fall. My body begins to being a free fall forward. And. The lid my right hand starts to fall to. And I try to catch myself my right hand, 'cause it's I let go of safe, and I turn my hand around put my palm toward the ground and catch myself. But as I do that the lid of the safe comes down on my fingertips, I think I see the finger that got the brunt of it and then the lid snaps shut on my fingertips while my left hand comes down on top of the safe and pushes my entire body weight on top of this site Flett, thereby smush Inc. Completely my middle finger, and I'm not just saying the tip. I'm saying just below it clamped down just below the base of the fingernails, basically, the whole top part of by the knuckle was safe from fire. Is it was that is the positive spin on the sort the negative spin was that I was in exc. She ain't pain where I had any words. I had lot my middle finger law right hand into the safe and was applying my full body weight on top of it. And I was like a yoga position that you just can't magically hinge up. You just can't magically like my feet are way back here behind the kennel the fire safe position. Doing fire safe was like Ben over a barrel, basically and. I don't know at that point. I'm like struggling to get my finger out of the safe, and it won't come out. And I'm like, I wasn't real Malone. I was not saying English. I was not saying expletives. I was grunting like a caveman in pain agony and just total despair. That was that I was going to be there forever. But how soon after that kinda thing happens like in the middle of it? Are you thinking I'm gonna talk about this on your biscuits because it hurt? Does what happened back? That's what happens to me. Now, anything that happens? That is like I should have got us into the situation. I'll answer that because. Yeah, what happened was it was an excruciating amount of pain. And of course, time slows down at that point. But somehow I was able to hop my left hand off of the safe onto the floor. And then rip my right hand outta the safe was still closed eight it didn't fully latte that would have been PA. Possible. And then I like put both my hands on the dog crate, and like peel myself back you could have trouble there to putting all your weight on a dog, then slaps the whole thing. And then I don't know if I'm mmediately lay down on the floor or did a dance around the room. But I looked at the footage and you can hear. 'cause I have that. I have that security camera in that room. And I am but I was out of frame, but I played it back in. I could hear the noise. I mate it was like. And then and then I was like. You say, oh, I got the clip. Yeah. Well, if it works throw it in there. And I'm like walling on the ground that and like Christie comes in. She's like what's wrong. She told me later she thought that I had fallen down the stairs. The noises. Your bags are falling down must've. All now, the sues. No, let me explain what I did. It'll take twelve minutes. I would have been. Would have been balling, except I was laughing. And I was thinking about how ridiculous is was. And that I was going to share it with you on Airbus at that point. She got me some frozen peas, and she was like what happened? And I was like I smoke my finger in that safe. I can't tell you the details because I feel kinda faint right now. And I was thinking about what had happened, and I was started feel faint, and I've sat there on the, but with frozen peas on my finger for like ten minutes before I feel like I could stand up. You're you're gonna broken. Well, I was convinced that like I lost my fingertip, or at least the nail. And I still may lose the nail. Oh, man, it hurt it still hurts a little bit. But. Oh, man. I'm so appreciative of nails. It was kind of interesting as well. It wasn't for fingernails. I I would of the fingertip. I think that's a protect. It's an armor. I'm not going to tell the story because I've already 'cause it's not much of a story. But you know, the finger that I heard before he left for London out saying about putting my hand into my. Guitar case in the thing going between, my fingernail. Oh, yeah. It's the same finger the middle finger of the right right hand. It's been swollen see that it's been this is a sign of Smith swollen ever since. It's like I was worried that the car the Q Delage the critical on the right side of your this thing and it bled. It went down in there. And then blitz I did that one time, and it got infected that's what I thought was happening swelled up so big that I super heated a needle underneath aflame. And I stuck it in two to drain all the plus out. I thought it was gonna get some sort of like London bacteria. You know, like, you know, like some old world bacteria that was going to take me out.

I thought maybe we could start with just a couple of the little differences that we noticed. Well, there's the thing that you talked about at the beginning of our concert that you were fascinated with when you stop at a traffic light. And it's 'cause the lights read that that also means in London that you need to stop even though you're driving a riding on the other side of the road. When you see a red light, you should stop. But once you're stopped when it's time to go. The lightest doesn't turn green people. It turns yellow to warn you to give you a heads up that is about to turn green. And then it turns green. So it turns yellow on both sides of a red. Warning. You're about to stop yellow red. And then heads up you're about to get to go again, yellow green. And I I'd never heard of this. I just I just thought this'll be something that they say about London. This seems important. I think it's that way in other places to just lend him. But now the places never seen it. I don't deny that it could have reason there's not other places, and it's not it's unnecessary. I love it. It's unnecessary. I love I like, I'm a planner man. I like to know when someone's gonna have and specifically when it comes to drive. I like I like to be go take my foot off to break yet. And I like I understand it little gas. Here's why it's unnecessary because it's it flashes. For such a short period of time less than a second. Your action that you take after you see the yellow is the same action that we here in America, take when we see green. But here's the psychologically. There's no difference though. There's no active difference. There is there's definitely a psychological difference. Because it's if the Light's green, and I'm not going I feel like a failure. So I feel like I have no chance of being a success unless I start going risking going. When it's red which is which is unsafe in a violation. I'm by I'm not I'm not looking for a motion support from the way, I respond to the Ritz give me an opportunity to feel like a success when driving and I like it because I want to be in motion. But do you think that when they made the decisions this in parliament wherever they made the decision they were they were yelling about it. We want people to feel like success. No, they think they have a traffic. Reason for why this is the case there's no other way near what do you think it is like walk a mile in their shoes the reason that from an engineering standpoint? And I haven't thought about this much. I could definitely be wrong. Let me state that. I am open to hearing the engineering argument for this. But the reason that can we can. And can we lose part where you say could definitely be wrong. They can loop. If they want us, I'm just inviting them to loop so Jif Vive, it the reason that the yellow light is on is in between the green and the red is because there's a lot of variables half. There's so many variables while all the cars are moving. Sure. Air you're at how fast you're going. So there there's a decision to be made. Right. There is no decision. It's a binary decision that needs to be made. Because when you're slow slowing at how fast slow down ama- going to go through the light. And not there's only one decision that you can make when the light turns green. And that is to exceleron to go is. So by seeing the yellow light for a split second. The the outcome is the same. It's unnecessary is not needed. It doesn't do anything the people responding to it the same way that we respond to a green light the thing that I read about it was that it's related to stick shifts. Because if you're not to get in the right gear, but what it's just another heads up because you you have to there's preparatory work. I'm not making this up. This is something that I happen to read. I understand that. And there's many more manual cars in England than there are and I only drive manual. But here's my thing. That's a lie. But I, but I do like if we're all again, I guess, okay. All right. So we don't we don't need to camp out. We don't as not there long enough because that's not a bad reason. Because if. Because now there's a variable. If you've got half of the people in line have manuals in half of the people have automatics, the people who have automatics are theoretically going to be able to start that much sooner. So therefore, maybe the link of the yellow light is the average time that it takes for someone to get into the right gear ago to get in first gear and go now, I would also say that you could also already being first year like we do in America. Wait. So I I mean, the reason why I like, it is is is is the reason Ardy gave it's emotional. It's psychological so on there's no argument here is fascination only. Well, one of the thing that I pointed out at the beginning the concert as well as that. The urinals. There's a few differences in the bathroom. We'll talk about but one of the differences in the bathrooms in the men's bathrooms is at the urinals. And I assume that's what they call them as well. On the wall that she p into you can't hoop into him. I I I have an emergency. They call them Lou holes the bathrooms caught a LUSA nowhere anywhere. Was there? A divider between the urinals in in now that it is not exclusive. It's not that. There's only dividers in the US, but there's dividers in most places at least fifty percent. Yeah. I did not encounter one urinal divider, and they're pretty close to each other. So it's kinda like I don't necessarily have a problem with it. But you don't feel I don't feel completely comfortable. You know, what I think it is? They don't talk. They don't have small talk with strangers. That's something that doesn't happen. Like in. It happened. Some in America like people strike up a conversation with somebody just out and about saying this decay. She just went to one city for a couple of days. I read about this oh been reading. I just wanted to validate. What I thought were the difference in my I just happen to find that out like they don't they don't have small talk on like the tube. You know, you don't it's weird for them to speak to each strangers. Now in New York, I I mean on the subway, I I don't see people talking to each other. But I I think maybe there's a higher likelihood that Americans will shoot the breeze at Jason urinals. If there's no divider, but the Brits don't have to worry about that. I've had a number of people strike up a conversation with me while I was urinating in London though. No, definitely no under. But not in London. I, but if there was or not my preferred communication now, I'll like, I don't even talk. To I don't turn my head. I would not respond self. I don't talk to myself at a urinal definitely you don't want to be at a urinal muttering to yourself. That's not a good look. So they don't have dividers. They also don't have paper towels. That's good on them. And this is I mean, this was the in Amsterdam as well. I think in an Australia. There may be a thing. Everybody else's figured out that we don't need to dryer hands on trees except for us. But is it really better for the environment? Because you're using trysofi which in most places still the majority of the literacy is being produced by fossil fuel burning. So I mean, I guess once we go all renewable. It definitely makes sense. It has been proven that they're less. They're not a sanitary though. I think don't quote me on that. I think that they did a study that the hand-driers even though sometimes they say, it's more sanitary. It's not more sanitary because it's blowing bathroom air around. Noah's emba- through mayors low pieces of PM Koopman while the thing, and they a lot of have that Dyson where you'd like a set small slot that you gotta like totally get you flat hands in Erbil up a little bit on air blade. And then you like slowly pulling your hands back out s nerve wracking man because you feel like you're so close to the plastic parts that everybody's been so close and not only that what happens on the way out. I'll tell you touch the handle you don't have a paper towel. You can't do the perfect bathroom trip. Without a without a paper towel. He wrote a whole song about this. The paper towel opening the door. We still use that instrumental at the end of our air biscuits. That is what it is. Isn't it? It's perfect. Perfect. So you can't have a perfect bathroom trip in England. Because you're going to end up containment in yourself on the door handle, no matter how well it goes. You can use your shirt sleeve or your own Hanky or your foot, but you open it up with your foot now everybody decides to open it up with their hand has been compromised. Did you feel like the hotel was different definitely, and we stayed at hotel hotel that was. Right there at the venue at the excel. And so I've stayed at this brand of hotel in the US in. I'm I'm about to sound like a spoiled brat fine. Whatever I think we already do the with it. We are spoiled. We sound like it all the time. But he keep keep it rolling while we're talking about differences. I wanna tell you. I mean the sheets were rough man the sheets she's rough sheets felt like a little cardboard. And then the the T P in the bathroom. I was going to the Jennifer she thought she's were rough. But like she works for us. She's you know, she puts up with us all the time. She probably put out some rough. She did you think she's rough. Because they were not I cited notice I didn't notice she's a rough. But I'll tell you what I noticed when I took a shower, and then I got that Talal down. And I was I was drying off a drive my face. I take a deep breath and the freakin Talal smelled like Rahman. They make tells out around there. I mean, it's if it got real it might would've just turned into a floppy noodle. But maybe that might be an isolated thing. Because I have a theory about the rough toilet paper in the rough sheets again stayed at this brand this kind of hotel in the US do not remember this. And again, I'm not saying that it was intolerable. I slept fine. Isn't it? It's just good the sheets that I enjoy on my bed, and the typical hotels that I frequent in the United States of America have very soft sheets is just part of the deal high thread count and also they have quilted toilet paper. Inside of the bathrooms. I have quilted toilet paper in my bathroom theory. Because I have you know, I I I want to treat my my butthole. Well, I mean, that's that's what I do. That's the kind of guy that I am. I actually have a day. But then you know, I got a day. I got a day for day. I just think I just think that something about okay? Like set the exact temperature of it. You have the history of who so pampered you had the history of the English people like, you know, I could see your mile butthole with the temperature of my day. If I wanted to do you don't do that. That's not that's not carrying just like you wanna use wanna when you're done you just want that thing you wanna hear this. Erie. The theory is fizzle that western Europe like people. They like the it's a rough is a rough bunch, man. I mean, actually legitimately if you ever if you ever if you ever read guns germs and steel, which I have recommended on this podcast before a lot of people ask why is it that the people from western Europe who went to the new world. Why why did they not die from the diseases? Why was it? The native Americans that died from the diseases that the white people brought because they had rough rectums. That's why the reason is is because they had lived in close quarters and sort of this uncomfortable bacteria Laden lifestyle sewage on the Adrian people on top of each other you go back to like old school western Europe back in the middle ages. It was dirty as crazy. It was so crazy on a call directly. Stephan on chicken, people dying all over the place. And then you've got people in the new world. Two Americans open space to open pottery they weren't living on top of each other in. So you got these super viruses super bacteria that are coming across on these boats, and then just decimating the native population. I think that they just have this ruddy. They've been just been rough man they and they like it rough. They like the sheets rough. They don't know that the sheets are rough. But something about coming over to where soft coming over here in like starting a new nation. That's all about freedom. You know, it's like we. We just got we got ahead of ourselves. You know, we're like, oh, you know, what we can't. We we can't vote. We don't have to have a king. We have a president. We got all we all got got all high and mighty about all our freedoms. And the next thing. You know, I wanna live my rethought with a blanket. Right. We wanted everything so soft, and we got it. And now we're spoiled with spoiled, and and and they're like, no, no keep it rough, man. And so I actually I envy them. I envy them that they can take they can take your roof. They can take a rough sheet. They could take a rough T P because my booties adjusted. It's like go over there. And I can't take it. He's gonna have to travel with my own frigging toilet paper because I'm just a, you know, spoiled American. Yeah. You you spend too much time mind in the wrong gap. You feel me? I never saw that signed by the way. I never saw a sign that mine the gap. I saw a sign it said underground, but they call it the tube. Yeah. We went on that. I think underground is a is a is a pedestrian tunnel while were complaining about a subway is a pedestrian tunnel while we're I'm going to say I loved I loved London. Okay. Let let me let me just say that. But let's go back to complain. Now. That's where I'm going to land. I loved London. I plan to go back, but let me complete think it's funny to complain. Let me just I'm just gonna complain a little bit more because I do wanna talk about the food. I feel I have to talk about the okay now, let me just say, I know that. Again, not only are we spoiled as just as a culture we're spoiled above and beyond because we live in Los Angeles. We just we we have access. We've got we can get some good food, y'all. We like I go back. Go back to North Carolina. And I in in in his gotten a whole lot better than it was even when we moved away. But if you don't give it up if you don't get up in their neurology area. You you're not gonna get real good food. But now, no you're gonna get comfort food. That's comfortable everywhere. Reliably good. I mean, I don't enjoy golden corral. As what I'm saying? Is that I just can't do it in on. You know, I you judge me all you want. I just can't enjoy it anymore because I I've gotten gotten too big for my britches. But what happens is we go to London. And we just well, you know, what I'll let you take you from here because you you had some years. Joyce opinions as well. Why don't you tell them about? Well, they there's the, you know, the trope the food's not good in London. And then they said, but it's gotten a lot better. And you know, what it was like? We went to this place. We we had to grab some launch. And we're like going we end up going to this place called slug and lettuce. Listen. It's a chain. We bow on earth. We about to throw slug and lettuce under the under the bus. We're about to rip it bubble decker bus. We about to rip them new with the roughest. Toilet paper. You have ever ever felt on your rectum? Wow. On earth. Would you name a place slugging lettuce? Maybe it means something different in English. And why on earth what I suggest after we saw places that well because they had a win you out front, and it said they had fishing tips on the minute. You know, we need to eat like a British some food from Britain. Well, let's eat some chips premise this. With the fact that we weren't really in the main part of London where the excel is. I don't know what part of London we were in. But we like forty minutes out. We're so we were in the Anaheim of London for those of you who are familiar with the Los Angeles area. Like if you go to Anaheim, and you're like, I don't like LA. Well, you haven't been to LA like that's is different right is a suburb. So we're the XL is not exactly London. Well, and we took a gondola across across the the landfill to in the river Thames yet to see to go in the oh to where they had all these different places where you could eat and we're like perusing the menus. As you walk down the pathway. I'm like, let's see here. We're gonna grab and go some they got fish and chips, and they got salads. If you don't want that. And I need some fish and chips. The reason we didn't eat at. There's also like a Mexican place a Mexican place Italian platelets. We have to tell a side story before we'd tell the slug and lettuce store because the reason we didn't get the Mexican food is because the night before we had been out in the main part of London we went to shortage. And then we ended up going to SoHo or somewhere, I don't know where we anyway. So we were kind of going we were bar hopping basically going to these old English bars that said things like since fifteen twenty nine which were that was amazing going to bars that were that old. We is really really cool place that was inside an old prison and the well jail. They had all jail. Yeah. You go downstairs, and it was all brick work, and they seated us in this room that was an archway entrance that then it was one huge table that had been seeding the other less on the right side in the back. There's like a use seating. And the whole ceiling was like a Br. Bricked in hangar. It was like art and archway old cell. Yeah. It was the jail cell. And we realize that and we were like, very cool. We we're hungry. We're getting some pints, but we wanted some food as well. And so I was like are you guys serving any food because it was late. It was like almost midnight. It was got serving food. He says, yes, we have what do you? What do you? Call them the small Mexican crisps. And we all looked at each other. And you said like tortillas he's like, yes, what it really is tortilla chips and some sausa-. So and you're like, ooh. Yes. That so he said I'll I'll bring everything that I have had some olives yet some pickles. He had again, this is very cool place gherkins, but he brought the Mexican crisps the tortilla chips now again, we're from Los Angeles. We know what a frigging tortilla. Chip is we probably can get some of the best in the world. Right. We're very close to the place where there's less source, Mexico, and the tortilla chips were I mean, they were tortilla chips. They weren't absolutely horrible. They were small Mexican crisps. The sausa- was catch up with tomat- with onions in it. It was catch up with onions in it. I mean, that's the only way that I can describe it was catch up with onions in it now. Eight two eight two bowls of it. 'cause I was very hungry you eight and I like ketchup and onions that's not sausa-. I know. But I mean, you're in London why your chips and salsa all they had. Is all that's why the next we chose that. It was like that's all they write everything they had we I was still having an incredible time. I love everybody. I love the scenery and drinks. The drinks were great the atmosphere was great that the people were. But then the next day you rely I wanna get some traditional only get some fishing ships. And I was like well definitely want to go the Mexican restaurant because I don't I'm not in the mood for Mexican crisps is Valentine's Day. I was kind of. I was in a sad place. At that moment. You know? I just I wanted to be with my wife. I didn't want to be with you. Right. Eating Mexican crisps at some arena. It was an arena, the, oh, it was it was an arena slug it, but you insisted on at least one it got fish and chips, and it looks British in there and Jenna picks the minions she's like crinkle Brown. She's whether it's like eighteen pages of drinks. And there's like one page of food those just a bar. There was a lot of stuff on. There was a lot of stuff on the menu. At that point. I had already made the decision that I wanted to get healthy patient, regardless of of how bad it is. So I had a little issue because I wanted the salmon and the SuperFood salad, right? But they had salmon with vegetables, and then they had the superfoods salad with this other meat. And so I went up there to order the bar. I was like so. Yeah, I want the SuperFood salad. But instead of the instead of the steak, I want the Sam he's like, okay. Do that. It was like I had asked to like walk out with something. And he was like we can't do that. I was like you. Sure. You can't just you can't just do the salmon you might as well it said I'd like to burn this place down. Yeah. Yeah. And then he went into I'll go ask my manager. He goes in ECE manager and see ask the manager. And the manager looks at me he's like. What? What? Can't substitute. Maybe I've gotten spoiled because you can substitute other meats in now at that point. You know, you weren't you weren't that spoiled because at that point what did you do ordered both? I said okay without take take. This. The salad. Whatever is gimme both of them the fish and chips just to cut to the chase here. Warhorse? I mean, why calm the fish and chips are horrible. They were there was it would the blandest tasteless. I mean, I'm sitting there like pouring vinegar and salt over the whole thing. I mean, I need a lot of salt, and they don't they don't sell it a lot of stuff, I guess. Well, no. Because it just was because we had good food. But at the slug and lettuce we might as well have had a slug or lettuce after our show. We're devoted his whole freedom podcast complaining about everything in London. We'll be back guys feel horrible. After the show where like we can't go, and we're just going go back to the room. We're gonna room service. And we're like we find out like the hotel doesn't have room service at this time of night. Yeah. That's where at the front desk in they're like, well, can we order pizza, and he's I guess like gives us three different like flyers of what were you gonna order pizza now? Nope. No places that are not change that. I that. I recognize in listen, I it didn't like I think that Domino's and Little Caesars excetera Pizza Hut is like the best pizza in the world. I think it's good pizza. I mean, it's passable pizza. I will say that we have come to. Appreciate it. Because they deliver this pizza in it. It was so bad. My wife loves pizza. I had to put her on video chat in order to show her. How sad this pizza was in. It's a place is the pizza delivery play. Let me tell you that the guys at the front desk at this hotel. We were staying in specifically pointed out this place. They're like we got that the other night, and it was great. And so I was like, okay. So I think that that that it's us. You know, I it was awful. I don't understand. Listen pizza is simple. It's doe. It sauce is cheese in his toppings in. They we don't have AOL in what pizzas, but they failed miserably in all four categories. It was uncanny. It I I was like how much of it. Did you eat five pieces. But I did not enjoy it eat enjoy one bit at all. It was just sustenance. I was freaking tired after our show in the meet-and-greet. We hadn't eaten anything in a very long time. Oh, we were. We're so sad. It was two AM. But let's talk about the food that we did enjoy because I also had what I consider to be one of the top. It's definitely talk twenty meals. Yeah. I've had interesting. I'll agree with that. If you wanna get really good British food get Indian food. We. Deschutes short. It's and people. This is like a sit down restaurant fancy cocktail drinks like all the Indian food that you would expect from an Indian restaurant and the so it's like a sit-down meal dining experience people are lined up around the block waiting for like hours like people probably wouldn't three hours waiting to wait waiting to then put their name in. And wait. We wait an hour and a half, and we decided to have one person there, and it it was worth. It was worth it. It was so good. It was like a magical experience. And I think that's the key. You eat all this stuff in. It's just so bland or like, unbelievably horrible. And then you like this have you go to these dining experiences, and they I think his top twenty is either really great or just really great by comparison. But but it was fabulous. But can you explain? Soga how okay. So right. Okay. Traditional English food has a reputation for being bland, right sort of meat and potatoes mushy peas, but then one of the culture, you know, one of the countries that they imperial is has incredible food and they end up getting they end up getting that food and now they kind of call it their own. Yeah. But if they like that food, they didn't mess it up 'cause Indian widen make the other food better India food is so flavorful, and so bright in like, it's some I think it may be the best food on the plan. I think it might be my favorite like flavor. I mean, we were gusting about it for hours, but it because. Okay. Because the other good meal we had was the night before when we went to that that really oh bar that was founded in sixteen sixty six which I thought was cool. Oh, yeah. We had some meat pies. They were good. And we had again. Innis, and I had a venison meat pie. That was oh. And then we got like a little sampler. They had like a scotch egg. And some other things all great really really, really good. Do you go to the right place? You can get some good. That's like traditional stuff. It was really good. It was like it just had the right flavor. Balanced Stevie Stevie got a meat pie at slug and lettuce room with that thing looked like oh gosh. They should just call it slug on lettuce, and that's what they should serve. You know, you going. I'll you know, what I want because it's what you serve I wanna slug on a piece of lettuce. Then you know, what you will have a better experience than we had this episode of your viscous is not brought to you by slug and lettuce. We also had some great Thai food, very interesting tie food, just catty corner to Shuman. We couldn't get in the surgeon called the smoking goat or something. Like, we're gonna talk about anything else. Because I let's switch from the food in the, you know. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway. We we we had some good food. We had some bad food. We took a walking tour. I like to take a walking tour when I'm new to a city of said this before we took a walking tour this one. Well, it happened to be a Jack the ripper walking tour. Yeah. Turns out didn't know much about the guy. He's a serial killer in. So you probably already knew that. And I think I did. But I just didn't want to dwell on it. So I find myself walking around the city, and it is but cold in Wendy's all get out, and I'm like a little under dress two hundred dressed, and this woman is walking around saying, oh look here. A woman was disemboweled and entered her throat was slit, and in her her her innards were were thrown over her shoulders, and let's walk over here. I got another story for you. This woman's uterus. Was was cut out. This woman her throat was slit innards were thrown over thrown out of her body. Hey now, let's keep walking. I got an surprise here. Here's what a woman you never believe this a woman's throat was slit aner innards were thrown out. That's what just keep walking. And that just kept happening. It was colder and colder. It was like it was it was like a serial walking tour. It was like the same walking tour again. And again, and again, and the whole the the theme of the night was we don't know, Jack, the ripper was, but it might have been this guy might have been this guy might have been this guy and the end she was like, so who do you think you, and we were like I think wherever he is. He's probably warmer than me right now. I was just thinking does it matter. I mean, does it really matter what we're gonna go put him in jail. We horrible. We are horrible walking to her patrons. Because like I was being very nut goes to New Orleans. Like, we were we were not good patriots. They're no. Because that that girl was not good. She was doing a good job. But this woman was was really good her job. She was a ripper. Just that's that's a of title. You can just give yourself. Also, someone who uses UK toilet paper. Vig was a blast. What I mean by that was we did we did a Q and A Stevie ask some questions submitted by mythical beast who were there. I always have fun doing that. 'cause we. The objective is to throw Stevie offer her game like just try to. And you know, bring the audience for the ride that was fun. We did a meet and greet. We got to press the flesh with some fans, that's a political term for just like shake hands with people. Yeah. You should probably come up with a new one. And we had we had done our concert, which I'm gonna watch the tape back. I'm sure I'll have a lot of notes for us. But in general, I had a really fun time. I said it from stage. I was proud of you you sat there and you played your keyboard for the first time. Did you look speaking of that? Now, I've already told you that are, you know, musical hero. John Mayer is learning you told me that he was learning to play the piano, and I went on his Instagram and saw that he was doing that. Do you know who else is learning to play the piano right now? And I just saw on his Instagram John legend, he's he's been fingers. Sinking this entire tied. Jimmy fallon. Jimmy Fallon is learning to play the piano and very musically families. Like, I am learning the play the piano, and he's taking a course online course, Harry Connick junior teaches really and John Mayer commented on Jimmy's post and said, I've got adult onset, piano, fever as well. And I was like hold up. So do I and like John Mayer was born five days after me. I love him and Jimmy was is a little bit older than us. I like him a lot to now John Mayer commented on Jimmy's post, I come in on Jimmy's post at this point in time. He's responded to John Mayer. Okay. As a responded to me. But you know, I mean give him give him time. But what is you want me to get in the is there something is there something in the air? Is there something in the water is Twitter, Instagram? This is Instagram on that shout out to link Lamont on Instagram. I'll get into mix. It's just interesting. Old old men are teaching themselves. How to play the piano? It's a it's a midlife crisis kind of thing. Definitely seems like it. We had a great time of the concert. Thank yous fun for all you came. It. Did it did open things up to play piano? I wanna make an observation about the crowded con not the crowd in the crowd. But the other YouTubers, right? Not our people not mythical beasts you're talking about. I think I know where you're going. I'm talking specifically. I didn't know I didn't know many. I didn't know any. I, you know, I I've got like the British YouTubers, you know, Tom sky and Jack in dean and Dan fill and, you know, the people who've been around for a really long time that everybody knows about I regret we didn't get to talk to Jack Ordine. I spoke spoke to Jack. Okay, briefly. He said Hello to me. He didn't. But now he'll bags you get talked to him. So just you know, he said Hello, just take it to someone probably. But I noticed that. Now, there's the old school like sketch guys that I kinda know and understand. But then there's like the new school British vlogger. Right. And I'm maybe they're just maybe their European in general. Maybe I don't know. But I just noticed there was like a uniform, do you? A lot of Barral threading a notice that will we'll both both the the the the men and the women are bay a lot of attention to their eyebrows being very perfectly shaped, but everyone's an athletic wear. Yes. Like cool matching sweats like all the girls had these like they look like they're about to go to the gym like a really nice resort. And they had their hair and pony tails. They have a crap ton of makeup. Oh, goodness. Yes. A crap time of scent perfume on. Yeah. And they look like they're about to run like a celebrity track meets, you know, that you know, that filter on Instagram that makes your face look really fake in make up. They just do that in real life yet. But it's like everybody's really well put together airbrushed face. And then the guys are the same sort of the same thing going on, but like an athletic wear. I mean, look I got a hoodie. Honey. No, I'm ready to be at let it get any the drop of this Arianna 'Grande type thing, I think like, you know, with the ponytail and athletic wear. She you know, she'll do that. Is that also I don't is that happening in this country. Well, heavily not just something that I'm I don't observe the young people anymore. I just look over them. You look through your own kids. Right. I have noticed that like our kids are like doing the athletic wear thing. But I mean, it's a, but but they take it to another level in. It's like it's like if your backup dancers were all wearing athletic wear. You know, it's like it's like that is heightened type thing heightened gear. And then you get. You're on an elevator. And then it's the doors are closing all of a sudden. And then the elevators open back up and all these people pour in and they're like they're very excited about themselves. Oh, well, that's how I feel. Okay. Yeah. I just felt like I was on an elevator with a bunch of people very excited about themselves. Now, we're different we just we're just very picky and demanding and crotchety and and can fill. I mean reams of audio with with complaint. I'm not complaining about the extremely, you know, they seem happy well made athletic align, happier than us. But I just made an observation. I felt like I was like I had fast forward to some in in the distant future. We will colonize Mars, and everyone will were wear matching athletic wear allure in paint their faces and pull their hair really tight. So that they can be transported by the special train that grab. You by your hair? I you know, what I'm saying. Like that would begin to make sense to me. I it. But is so everybody looked the same. They all it was very uniform as like this is our uniform. We are British bloggers again is probably not a British. You think is just is just people of that aid. Yeah. On the internet. Yes. Yes. Yes. Okay. We are people on the internet. Now, I love the humor like let's not forget that like we made a video with Tom sky. And in the middle of video is like, I just. I just love the way you funny. You know, I say that because that doesn't even make sense. But you know, what? I mean that was my sentiment. I'm I really enjoy your humor. It's the greatest. What's the crisis is the greatest man, the gross humor? So self deprecating. So and we made it back. Oh, did I meet Jj Abrams on the plane perhaps? I mean, I won't go into it. But we're buds. Reveiz a, you know. I pointed him out when we were at like waiting to get on the plane. We were like sitting there. Yeah. Free flight like sitting in the airport, and then we start walking to our seats TJ. He just finished filming. The Star Wars movie, it's not just Jj Abrams. I mean Jj Abrams. This guy is responsible for the revival of the Star Trek universe. Star Wars are wars. The show like shows that we're on our list. He's a brilliant of our most influential television, Tilelli, visual brilliant. Alias brilliant. Hainer writer director producer. Oh, gosh, this dude and your seat was right next to him. And I'm like. I made him along dog tone. I just wanted. I respected him so much that he didn't want to do me too. But it was a it was a ten hour flight. And you weren't exactly you're next to him. But I look it on his phone throughout the entire flight. Yeah. He played word was ward for friends. He played some other game. I identify. He was texting people. Somebody was like, hey, can you talk? And I was like why reading his text that's wrong. And I didn't read the rest, but it was kinda my face. I wasn't like craning like he would hold up. He was kind of leaned back, and he would hold his I don't have you near side or something. He went in his glasses. He would hold his phone at like full late full arms. So you can read it. So that we could both read his phone is like link. New seeing what I'm seeing here. He hadn't talked to me. I'm and then over that you taught him at the over. The course of the flight, I was having his internal dialogue about this dialogue. And also more importantly, the dialogue that I was going to have a my daughter if I told lily that I sat next to Jj Abrams, and I did not speak to him. She would be very angry. Yeah. Matter of fact, when I got home, and I was like lily guess who I met and like we had a little yes. Or no game. And she guest JJ, and she got tears in her eyes. Like literally, she was like, so like just emotional about the fact that I met him. And then I was validated. That like I'd made up a mind like when we're getting the bags and like he's about to walk out. And I noticed that like a flight attendant, I'm not gonna call him a stewardess came up to him like halfway through the flight. And was like this is from another area the plane in like crowds down and talk to vote while and like he was most gracious tiller super nice guy. And he and so I was like I was like JJ. Congratulations on wrapping, the shoot any any looked at me. Like do my supposed to know you. And I'm like, I decide the pictures online that that were posted. And he was like, thanks, man. Thanks. And he was like, yeah. I'm I'm just I'm really excited about and I was like. Well, you're not the only one who was like. Yeah. Yeah. I'm just glad at this point that like I was afraid at this point that yards afraid at this point. Meaning when you're done shooting, but having edited Yemen gotten to that stage like you're not gonna have everything's we got all of it. And like, so he gave me a surender Liotta. He had everything he needed Jj Abrams has got his he's got what stuff on locked and he got wedding needed. Good. No. And I was like, you know, what I'm sure you do JJ, and that was pretty much it. I'm sorry. I had to cut off my conversation with you in order to turn and talk to him. But I was kind of in the middle of our conversation. I just like whip pan. I understood okay. I was glad you you initiate it with him. I was glad you waited until that moment to initiate with him squeal via done something to embarrass yourself early into the flight than it would have been very awkward for the rest of this right for both of us because you next to me, very gracious. Very gracious, dude, very talent. Okay. There. There it is. So that that's London. I, you know, I I'm sure that you have your opinions about our opinions. And you know, that's what the world's all about. That's what the internet's about. You know, what let me know hashtag your business because I am going back to London on vacation. With lily in IM later in the year. Both of us will be back on are gonna go back team. And we are going to experience it for ju just as tourists not in work mode. And I'm I'm gonna I'm gonna tread lightly. When it comes to the food, but I'm a trade heavy when it comes to the experience. I love it. I love it just got to make the right choices. That's all. He's gotta make the right choices. No pizza. Let me drop a recommendation. We gotta start teasing that we do recommendations at the top. So that people will endure our complaints into the in. So they can get this point and experience what I'm about to recommend to you or and to them so 'cause my week for a recommendation check baby check may be one two three four wrecks and affect is the name of the band. This is a wreck in effect. This is another song that I was having a conversation with Britain the other night. About Ronnie Millsap smoky mountain rain keeps on falling. Yeah. Big fan. He's great. He's blind to if you're curious, he's the he's the blind country music guy. He's I think he was legally blind. I don't think he was completely blind. He wears a song glasses. If you're trying to picture Lee is when I dressed up like Lionel, Richie and saying endless love with you dressed up as Diana Ross. I looked like Ronnie Millsap. So that's this guy is we were talking about him talking about how much we loved him. And he was like, well, we're talking about his voice, and he was like well have you have you heard his duet with Kenny Rogers? Oh, I was like, no I haven't 'cause Kenny has a signature voice. He's like well. And then we put it on and played it nineteen eighty seven's. Make no mistake. She's mine tells the girl is mine Paul McCartney Michael Jackson, kind of situation. It exactly is that about the same year. A couple years earlier. This was originally Barbra Streisand Kim Kearns song. But then when they did their country version, they changed it from make no mistake. He's mind to she's mine, and they wanna Grammy for it. Incidentally, was also. Performed in. Season of glee this song. So you have to listen to it on your own. I'm not gonna play it for rights issues. But make no mistake. She's mine. Ronnie Millsap, and Kenny Rogers I sat there and listened to it. I I'm getting goosebumps. Just telling you about like that. And you listen to it. And you tell me who has the better voice that that's the question, and it it's almost an impossible question. They both you think I would say running Millsap just I didn't based on. But then when I heard it was Kenny Kenny starts, and he's got that rasp. And it's basically perfection and then Ronnie comes in smooth like good mix. I can imagine. I can't believe I'd never heard this song you're gonna love him. And you might like it to it's you might. The voices the iconic country music voices in one song leave it at that. And they played Ronnie Millsap at this lug, and let us I might go back to have a drink and listen to some music. Yeah. Yeah. Take it all back slug and lettuce hashtag gear biscuits. Let us know. What you think about all this? Thanks for hanging out with us for listening to us, and whatever you're doing in your day, man. I'm glad we're a part of.

Vertigo

"It's nineteen fifty eight in Jimmy Stewart is dizzy and way out of his league, the movie vertigo. Hello, everybody. And welcome to unspoiled. I'm nicholson. And this is the podcast where me and my wonderful. Fantastic. Co host go through the movies on the top one hundred list. And we have now reached fifty movies. This is our fiftieth movie. Oh my God. Paul will be here in just a moment. But before he is, let's talk about last week's movie to kill Mockingbird, a movie that we, both really really really, really really, really loved. And so, did you guys including Melanie manning, who tweeted to us hot take to killer monkey bird is the movie is better than the book? You know, she says, at least as far as that goes is very close to the book. But that is not bad when you have actors and filmmakers breathing life into these characters with excellent filmmaking. She says it to kill a Mockingbird is what an adaptation should be slack Babbitt, who is at law monster. Thirteen noted that, you know, when we started to raise the issue here in the episode about, like west Tom Robinson, actually murdered by the cops when they say that he ran away and they shot him. He reminded us that in. The book it was way way worse that they specify that as Tom Robinson was quote unquote running away from the cops. He was shot seventeen times in the back over the Facebook group. There were a ton of interesting conversations, one of the ones that really stuck out was a conversation. Kind of looking at the different angles of is advocates Finch, white savior, which is something that Harper Lee kind of rolled back a bit in her sort of follow a book about it go set a watchman I pulled this quote from Todd Lawrence, because I thought kind of summed up all the different angles of all the different debates Todd Lawrence wrote, I think the white savior complaint is a fine lengths to be aware of. But I don't think it Mars, this film at its core to kill Mockingbird is about learning to see we watch scouts understanding of advocates, and Bradley evolve. And then we watch advocates is faith in the law of all. So it's more than a little poetic, and beautiful at our understanding of tequila Mockingbird should also evolve, it was written by a white daughter of the deep south, who is struggling to see truth, despite her social conditioning, does the nobility of Harper. Lee is intentions maker. Just another white saver herself. Off should she attempted to write a book from Tom Robinson's? POV despite knowing nothing of it, and yet, these are a lot of the questions that I think are so fascinating to wrestle with and talk out and hash out, and maybe never come to a resolution but maybe it doesn't have a resolution another couple interesting things that people pointing out this week, Ian Stewart wrote that he thought my comment about how to kill him Mockingbird might have influenced, John carpenter's Halloween. He thought it was interesting because when he which titter of this era Madria. He thought a lot of the thing, which yeah. Totally and also, I loved this, this may be Di Mico Pierce who has at Mike, seventy nine P. He wrote, oh, I mean, you know, it's interesting that you mentioned that the score into killer Mockingbird sounded like early Spielberg who was playing piano on Bernstein score. John williams. Oh my God. It now I'm like a complete trooper conspiracy, there is that blows my mind. Thank you so much for bringing that fun back to, to Oliver tensions. I wonder I wonder how will wear done Williams himself is of that, if he's like, oh, man, this reminds me of. I did a million times in his own DNA. That's fascinating. Okay. So to kick off our talk about this week's movie. The Alfred Hitchcock film vertigo are call it last week was we asked you guys to pitch a movie to us a movie that Hitchcock might have made about another disorder. Let's see what you thought of. His talk presents kidney stones who loves him to make a conspiracy thriller set in twenty nineteen called the Mandela effect. I would like to see a movie called narcolepsy that follows the unconscious Argentinian around the Moulin Rouge through an Argentinian lens Martic is dermatology. Mania which is the, the chronic picking skin. And I'm thinking of a mid late nineties, Winona Ryder as a star. I think the Hitchcock's much should be made is based on crop gras disease where you think everyday objects have been replaced by imposter objects? One man has a secret and those in power can't hold him down because quite frankly he flails around too much Jimmy Stewart stars, and Alfred Hitchcock's. Restless legs syndrome. Okay. I totally totally freaked out by dramatic mania that I cannot handle that, also, by the way, speaking of strange videos, I'm kind of mad that this was introduced to me. But have you guys heard of trip to phobia, because that is one that I did not know of somebody told me about it. I googled it. I wish I did not Google it. Because now I'm wondering if I have it don't look trip to phobia, whatever you do have a Fuyu of googling the word trip to phobia. And if you do, please don't victors, who know let's welcome, somebody back into the studio who I have no phobias about whatsoever. Is the world's greatest go host both here. The years nineteen fifty eight the top song is at the hop. Bye, Danny, and the juniors superglue was invented the price of postage stamp is only four cents. President Dwight Eisenhower signs, the national 'aeronautics and space at creating NASA. It's a big year for space with the US launching its first ever satellite explorer, one, fourteen year old, Bobby Fisher wins the United States chess championships, big movies include South Pacific, auntie mame. And of course, today's film, vertigo, rated number nine, and the af is two thousand and seven list up a whopping fifty two points from the nineteen ninety seven list where it was rated at number sixty one Amy vertigo who's in. It wasn't about already. It is directed by Alfred Hitchcock. And it is about I police detective his name. Scotty he's played by James Stewart, who's in several times, unless this before James Stewart is disgrace, because he was on a regular mission helping his police cut buddy. Chase a criminal. He realized he had vertigo. Nearly fell from roof. His buddy died trying to rescue him. And now in the trauma of this, he's hired by an old college friend to stock the college fans wife. The vengeance says my wife has this thing she disappears. She goes inside her head, I think she's haunted from this woman in the past named Carlotta Valdes from vintage San Francisco, history, and lore. He follows the wife he falls in love with the wife, the wife dies, and then the wife comes back in the form of one of the exact same face don't done. And that is Kim Novak in a dual role, and it's interesting because the film vertigo is often blamed for creating or popularizing the misconception that vertigo means a fear of heights and actually means a sensation of whirling and loss of balance, and that's often associated with looking down from a great height. So Hitchcock is presenting it the right way. But I think people just assume that vertigo is a fear fights, anyway, a little, little background on vertigo the disorder for you, do you want to know, over Jek title this title did not make it very far at all. But it was a title. That screenwriter Taylor. The thirds kicked around Hitchcock, or at least just blurted out once to lay a ghost. Wait is a joke. Probably. Oh my God. They did say to lay a ghost. To lay a ghost. I love it. I love it. I love it to catch a thief goes, do you have? I don't have vertigo. Do you know I don't know? I mean I have I like I like heights, actually, but I did I took a trapeze class once and I learned that what I cannot do is jump from a tall thing. Why would you want to write like I can't jump off a platform, but I can stare down forever. There's something about like not being in control of being at the top that I can't, I hate slides. It's the same thing I love slides, where I get the feeling the most the fear of heights. The most is an I can only kind of politics one location. But in Las Vegas at the pump so tell they have like a skylight in a bar that shoots down to the ground. So it's a a floor light essentially. So when you're standing over it, you're just hovering in the air, and I get nervous when I stand on it. I I'm tempting fate. I don't like it. I don't like standing on that clear glass. Tile. Like, why am I tempted fate here? Zip lines. Oh, yeah. Do that. I'm just picturing, you and famous getting like the vertigo zoom in zoom out crazy camera effect that Hitchcock came up with getting that, while looking down at, like just some dudes beer. Let's talk about that technique that he uses to create the sensation of vertigo. Right. This is this Dali's zoom where you're basically dulling out zooming in at the same time. So the cameras physically moving away from a subject while simultaneously zooming in. You've actually saw it in jaws as well. But the second is at least to me, yeah, right? I mean like brody's face was like. It's like it's really intense. And, you know, a lot of people give that a to Hitchcock for creating that. But it wasn't actually him people say it was actually this second unit. Cameraman Erwin Roberts who created that. So little, you know, little just do for Irwin Irwin. We wouldn't have that awesome in Jonah's without you. I remember going on the universal tour and like watching, how they created this effect back when I was a kid. It was so cool, too many people and we talked about this a little bit last week. This is their favorite movie of all time on the sight and sound list after years of kind of steadily moving up the charts it overtook citizen Kane, you know, and it's viewed by many people as Hitchcock's masterpieces best work. Yeah. I mean this film it came out in fifty eight. I don't even think it made it on the site and sound list until the eighties. And then it steadily climbed up. And, you know, a couple of the site in San inside is split their list into two groups, the critics list and the directors listed in critics vote. And directors vote. It might you. This isn't even a ton of people like I think vertigo is on the number one list was like a grand total of one hundred ninety one votes. That's ninety one votes. And that's on the critics list. It's not actually number one on the director's list its critics who love this movie. It's ridiculous talking about this movie and its critics who came to this movie much, much much later, after it came out, is interesting. Like I know we're going to do reviews the end. But I will it's not spoiler to say like when this movie came out people are like it's okay, little goofy. I don't know. It's fine. Hitchcock was embarrassed by this film. It was a flop when it came out, and he pulled it from circulation. It was only kind of put back into the world in nineteen Ninety-three after he had died, his family, put it back out there. And that's where this film kind of had a second life. It's almost like a Disney gaming of the system when they were like we're gonna hide Bambi you're gonna really want Bambi. Yeah. And then it comes back out because when you read people talk about vertigo almost nobody can talk about vertigo without talking. About either the rediscovery of it or then the restoration of it, they did in the nineties, like, but it's smart because this film took on this mythology. I mean this film is a myth and then it took on this extra methology around it. And I think a lot of why people love it. So much is maybe not even because it's the best Hitchcock. But it might be the most Hitchcock where like his career ended we saw the entire body of work. He made we saw of fixations. We saw all of his obsessions, we really knew how he treated actresses after this, because this comes out before psycho Hitchcock's career is done, and then you dig through everything. And you're like this one vertigo this has him with women this as him as controlling this has his sort of like a vodka. Tive nece. This has the way that he loves to put audiences in a spell. You know, this is a film that is so different from citizen Kane as many ways, because I think of citizen Kane as perfect, and it gives it isn't Kane, as like this flawless, magical clock where everything is in place in everything ticks, everything is beautiful and everything. Is smart. And all the dialogue is great vertigo is something different. It's like this, like, maddening strange. I don't know why am I had the image is like it's like if you had a peanut butter sandwich with bananas, and bacon, and you're like this shouldn't work, but it works and you're like conflicted. And you keep eating the sandwich. Yeah. Well, I was thinking about this as well. It feels to me like a Kubrick film, in the sense that it's really pushing a boundary here. I feel like an it's an adult movie. It's showing a protagonist that we now come to recognize as normal. And a to go to the most often use example, the Walter white example, the flawed hero, the anti hero, I mean, Jimmy Stewart, and this movie is not the Jimmy Stewart that we know from other films that we've seen in this list, he's a very flawed damaged character I leave and say this movie he's not even an anti hero. But this movie is anti hero. Yeah. Has it opens not only with him not doing a heraldic act by like falling off of the? Alka near nearly flying off the balcony, letting a criminal go free. The actual hero in that scene. The cop who goes to rescue him dies like the hero dies at the very beginning of the movie about who could have the criminal was like, I'm going to save my friend doesn't work. Here was his dead minute to Elba with the film opens from the black and white titles into color into these, this really provocative image of this woman's face in the into her I, which I was trying to mimic last night after I watch keeping your eye open that long without blinking tried to find some sort of fact on, whoever that woman was that wasn't Kim Novak while you're doing that in the mirror, I was doing it to myself, I knew him my I can blink. But I love that because he's asking you to study this face like look at this face. Look at a woman's face. And when you look at her lips like that you start to think like, are those the lips of Aligarh like where we going with this? When you look at her, I and he starts going to widening in vertigo that word vertigo just comes out of the pupil, and he'd go into this spiral other spiral. That's other spiral. And by the way, I acting. Yeah. It's like this shot in, in psycho, at the end where like you see. Mary rain dead. And then the cameras spirals over, I it spirals out like he loves pupils wonder that idea like, you know, the eyes are the window to the soul and inside you're looking in. Is that is devoid of a soul? Vertigo you keeping in this building doesn't have windows. And if it did people would still be alive. I mean, this movie is a lot about faces in a lot about silence in an away, I kind of believe this is like Hitchcock's version of a silent film for the first hour and thirty minutes. There is very little dialogue besides the opening scene and the scene in the boat yard. It's a lot of Jimmy Stewart, fouling Kim Novak and watching him watch her and in a way you're getting put into his POV kind of just becoming obsessed with an image, not the person the image of the person, and the making eye contact Kim Novak is ever. It's just him driving and music. And her walking Bernard Hermann score. Fantastic. Little similar to psycho, inspired by Tristan Isolde. Am I pronouncing it? Right. I don't know. But you don't need much dialogue to know what's going on. No, it facts. I was gonna talk. This guy talk about it now, this is the perfect time, there's this movie that came out last year called the green fog, have you heard about it? Oh, okay. There's this, experimental Canadian director that I've been obsessed with ever since I moved to L A, and heard about him. He news of him did not make it wasn't Oklahoma. His name is guy Madden. Oh, actually gave him an award for this movie. That green fog this year. It laughter. It's kind of complicated to explain. It's a remake of vertigo. However, it's a remake of vertigo made from footage of other movies shot in San Francisco. Chuck Norris movies, all sorts of movies, all these movies out of San Francisco. As a backdrop assembled into being the arc of vertigo the men, the meetings, the woman, the following the murder mystery, the depression, Chuck Norris, is in the depression montage, and what guy Madden and Evan Engalnd. Johnson has like two co directors do is they just assemble it based on mood and music. They cut out all the dialogue. There's almost no dialogue in the entire movie except the music carries you through you know, vertigo is. And they just have this music, have this imagery, the characters change from state missing because offered by different people. And yet it somehow is vertigo because this is a movie that exists, sort of, in a mythic gigantic emotional mood, board, state, without needing dialogue, you know. So you talking about it as a silent film is exactly right. And that's exactly what guy met did here like here, here's this. This is one of the only lines of dialogue in the entire film. It's a woman at a restaurant, sitting with her friend, and he just keeps cutting every time everybody opens their mouth. So it's a mix of music and just breath. And then this one. Go to the museum. Saturday. This is what I think, part of the vertigo magic is, you know, like sometimes I get frustrated about the way we talk about film. You know, we the grander gigantic, we including me where we get really focused. We have such tempted to that even me, it'd be like, nitpicky, blah, blah, blah, blah. And sometimes, I think nitpicking really matters, and sometimes, I think it doesn't because the film is operating on a different level, and this is a film, where it's never about the dialogue. It's not about like the quips it's not about cleverness. It's all about what cinema is because cinemas not supposed to be like a fable telling you, like, here's how to behave, which is how we think I think a lot of films are supposed to be now. Or like character didn't respond in a way that I think is proper and therefore they're cancelled or whatever vertigo is all just about capturing this feeling translating into the audience without words. I mean you don't have Jimmy Stewart go. I'm mad and depressed. You have Jimmy Stewart's face bathed in red blinking blinking, blinking. And that gets it across this is a purely visual film, in a way that citizens. With perfect visuals is not this is all visual will. And that's what brings me back to the Kubrick idea like this is a much more internal film. I think that a lot of Kubrick's films are about what's going on inside the mind of our league character. And in a way, this film subverts your expectation of what Hitchcock film is because we open up with a scene kinda shot like rope, a big wide apartment were watching Jimmy Stewart who were familiar with. But he's a little bit different than what we know he's a little bit more caddy a little bit more of a playboy, if you will, like you said, kind of, like teasing midge being kind of oblivious swank on his coffee table. Swing he's like a I'm a bachelor. I don't even put this up when lady comes over, but then once we get out of those first, two scenes, you really are left alone with him in the silences. And I think maybe why this is so personal Hitchcock is this is what Hitchcock does. He's behind a lens. Nhs looking at people. I know a lot of people say, like this is Hitchcock doing a self examination of himself like being coming, infatuated an angry with this blonde woman, and in watching her and obsessing with her. And then when, you know, later in the movie, she's not doing things right. He gets very controlling of her. And that's that was Hitchcock's MO. They his entire career is like driving his female actresses insane. And I think that's exactly why critics love this film is because they can just point to it and say there it is right? That is it that is what he was doing. And therefore, we have decided that you are the most perfect most representational. I mean you don't jump from sixty one on the list to nine in ten years. Unless people are talking about this film, like crazy, because it is fun to analyze in the historical context of who Hitchcock was. You know which to me I feel like a lot of different emotions about that. It's kind of weird that we're like, layering an artist biography onto this film, so that we can decide that it is the best, and yet, this film does have a genuine, hold on people. And yet my. Favorite hitchcock? Films are the ones aren't like this. Like I really love like the quickey sardonic funny stuff. I love like his British ones is early thirties ones. I love it when he just is mean and nasty and funny, and there's not much humor in this. So it's weird that the most representational isn't representational. But it is representational. It's everything will interesting because we're also talking about this world, where do we separate the art from the artists, and I think years, a perfect example of how the artist is making something that is important to him. And yes, he's pushing forward the medium, but the story seems very personal to him like he worked three different screenwriters to get this story, the right way, you know, throwing away scripts and really being very hands on in it. And talking about the silent nature of it, this movie that he didn't want the reveal scene, where Kim Novak writes the letter and says this is the plot. This is the whole story. He didn't want that in the movie. He took it out of the movie it was only. Forced in the movie. I think that's one of the reasons like Hitchcock was kind of upset with this film because I think he wanted this movie to live without that scene, and how crazy, would it be without that reveal seeing? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think personally for me, I would like it a lot less without the reveal swim because I mean, now we just live in this era. It's like somebody moves around in acts really weird in the last act there. Like I had a miscarriage you're like, okay. I mean that's so many films, and it drives me nuts where like the person holds back the one piece of information that explains what the characters acting like this. I don't know why I'm using miscarriage I guess, because of the horrible Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt movie by the see where that was like the whole thing we lost a baby. Like that's what you're fighting. Okay. I think it'd be so much more interesting for film, like that, if at the beginning, there, like we had a miscarriage now let's go to the ocean and work it out. Then they get to fight like I don't know why we have to do things like a surprise. Well, it did to me. I really appreciate that. We get to know that she's like, is that makes her performance so much more compelling in the second half? Like I can't imagine how that would performance would go if you thought she was just a woman giving in to what this random guy wants her to do, but actually, makes her character make sense. You see what she's going through her guilt? His guilt. And he knows him share to cares about him when he walks on the door, even though to duties credit, she's remarkable actress listen to this day, I see each other. And she's pretending Susan know him talked what about you? Why? Because your mind miss somebody. I heard that one before too. I remind you someone used to be madly in love with then she did you for another guy and you've been carrying the torch ever since? And you saw me in something clicked. On for. Well, it's not gonna work. See a better go. Let me commend. Let me commend. Here you can leave the door open. I just wanna talk to you. I mean, I think that Judy does not get enough credit for being a phenomenal actress. I'm talking about Judy. You're not even Kim Novak like duty is playing it off. So, well, you know, we're getting here, a real voice or impatience, she's very convincing in that scene great. But anything about the everything that Judy had to do as Madeleine Judy had to act passive, a bit lead this man in different directions and get it, so it would feel like his idea to take her to this place or to take her that place. I will bring you here at the right time. She wants him to bring her where the where the woman is upstairs about to be thrown out. She has to convince him all these things are his idea, which is oh, really? I mean, let's just like improv, that's like, could anybody from UCB do that? I mean I don't know probably because we're that good. But I do believe this movie is about manipulation employing into people's egos. Like 'cause she manipulates him. The first half of the movie, and then you know, he's manipulating her the second half of the movie, you know, these are two people who are really flipping the script on each other. When you see Jimmy Stewart you hear his voice here as after he gets out of the mental institution. He is a broken man. He's not the man that you hear in the beginning. What what good luck do? I don't know. No good. By the way, let's say him talking to midge to present their, you know about those things you're a big boy. Now remember run across one like that it's brand new revolutionary uplift. No shoulder. Straps. No back. Straps. But does everything brassieres should do works on the principle of the cantilever bridge? Aircraft engineer down the peninsula designed. It worked it out in his spare time hobby. Do it yourself type thing. How's your love life? Midge. A couple of things. I love the scene so much because like just that cut of like him being like here's a brawl. How's your love life? And we all know is going through his head, but be this is a scene about what is relationship be like with midge. They're talking about romance about bras about underwear in the most bridge cantilevered mentioned type of way. I mean, this, this romance would be a logical orderly engineered romance, where everything was in place. Any rejects that, for this romance with, like the tragic, tragic Kim Novak eighty falls prey to it? I think every single man in our film falls prey to these films are all about one thing this dummy thinks this hot girl, could really like him. That's what we saw with Fred macmurray. Well, but hold on. Let's go. One step further and say, I think that this character falls victim to what every stereotypical male falls victim to the thing, that's unattainable is. Better than the thing. That is attainable. You know what I'm saying? It's like he has this great relationship with midge. It's playful. It's fun. But he is falling in love with Kim Novak, who doesn't even speak until, like one third into the film. Like there's no connection there. He just falling in love with her from a distance. It's like watching an MSNBC investigative report, where it's like the man killed his wife because he thought the nanny was into him a thought the nanny was into him. Not they had an affair. It's the guy just assuming that there's no there's no reason why they shouldn't be together, even though he knows nothing about them. And this is I think like goes right to as far on that believability edges. You can, which is why I think it works so well as a dream movie at the time and this movie didn't do Hitchcock said he thought a lot of it really was the audience having a problem with the age gap between Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak. Jimmy Stewart was over twice Kim Novak's age fifty and Jews twenty-five. Yeah. Yes. Everybody was like, no. Thank you for that. But to me it works really well. Age gap with the first half of this movie when he's just in love with her. Absolutely. Because you know what? Jimmy Stewart brings to this to this love story has with a woman who he falls in love with before she talks when we see her in a graveyard framed in flowers and gravestones, the most ominous of all symbols, I was actually at that church. A couple of weeks ago is pretty cool. And they had to take away the gravestone here, right? Because. Yeah, because it was like, we don't want people coming here as a tourist attractions Easter Sunday. It was Easter weekends. It was like to create care, crazy news to go inside, but it was like, oh Hello church. But anyways, what Jimmy Stewart brings to? This is just this like, sincerity in this dopey nece, you want to be on his side. I mean, here's actually Hitchcock's daughter, Pat, explaining it. I think Jimmy personified for my father, every man, so that when people went to see a picture, they could put themselves in Jimmy's place, and especially in vertigo, he wanted the audiences to identify with Jimmy, which is what everybody did. I mean I will say where it doesn't work for me as the second half. Wait. That's where it works for me. Really? Oh my gosh. Because I think the first half of the movie is not hard, but asks a lot of the audience to go with you on this journey. You don't understand what you're really watching. I mean you do, but it's a very slowly paced quiet patient film. And then when you see the complete unraveling, and this is what I was talking about before playing those two scenes kind of back to back. You see, Jimmy Stewart his whole character makes, you know, one eighty switch in a way that you're like you see him as a shell of a man, and I like him as old man, who's trying to hold onto to something and, and makes the whole peace sad, and tragic, and I like all that, too. I do I like his hair, so great that we, we had this Jimmy who has this. Like young idealist going to Washington gonna save the planet and then here he is later in his career decades later. Being so broken a level that I love him being like this might be my last chance for like beautiful hot women who might love me. It's harder for me to buy that Kim Novak likes him that Judy Barton has like chosen him. I can't quite by that. But I don't need to also, don't you think that she it, don't you think that she falls for him, the same reason why he falls for her like he's looking out for her? He is introduced to her as damaged goods. And so he's, I can protect your eyes saved her. You literally from the water, I put her in my bedroom. And I took care of her. If you take if you save somebody's life there, you'll responsibility. I like that she's ruins his life, but I think in the beginning, he is of the high status position looking after a low status position. And so I think it's like you know, some people like that kind of relationship where you're always the provider. And like, that's how you keep somebody close and then flips in the second act, she's almost taking care of him. She does. Need to die as hair. She feels bad that he he's gone insane. So she's only doing this, because she's trying to make amends, but she's taking care of him. I mean, you know, and you'll get the movie they're, they're really mirror reflections of each other each half, you know, I don't know. She feels like she's taking care of him. What I hear Judy is complete broken nece. You know this idea I mean listen to the desperation in her voice, where she says. Fine, do whatever you want. Please. You. I let you change. Tell me will you love me. Anymore. I mean that's like a complete sublimating of herself. I don't care anymore about me, but don't you also feel like this is a kind of a statement on men and women like in the opening scene. We meet Jimmy Stewart a man has died. And he's slightly cavalier walking around spinning Cain. The be can't be a police officer again, but it doesn't seem to be really heavily weighed down by this death that he caused and accept the verdict, which is like brand new. Exactly. But later on, we have this woman who has rec this man's life. Not only she been complicit in a murder. But now she's wreck this man's life and I think that, that's up, LeMay. Shin is her guilt coming out like she can't walk away. Like she thought she was a person who could take that money trick, this guy, and be clean and free. But she's like I need to make this, right. So the way that she is making it right? Is by giving up herself the only thing that she has left, you know, she isn't this cold hearted person, where argue that Jimmy Stewart is I don't know. I mean, the joy in her voice. Choice when she's like, let's go out to dinner, and he's like, yes anywhere you want. She's so happy in that moment to be in a relationship. But then again, I mean, this is the one who lived basically the same life as the fictional Carletonville. Does you know, she was the mistress of a married, man? And then she went a little crazy. You know, she really went too far in this, and then she was abandoned by him. You get the sense that, like she was totally totally dumped by Gavin Elster. And now she's back in this like hotel room where she's lived for a long time. I mean the day after Jimmy Stewart goes crazy. She's probably on a date with governor Elster somewhere. You know, and then he don't. Well, I mean. Yeah. Because she believes that she did that out of love, and now she's alone. And I think that you go back to the idea like, where she's from she's from Kansas, and she's, you know, probably completely utterly looking for companionship on any level. And I think this is a San Francisco story. But it could be a very much a Hollywood story. It's like it's a lonely city and she's just looking for something. And you know what? This. Person who's obsessed with her. She'll take it, clearly, she's not, you know, in making great relationship choices. Anyway, they just slam the door on a lot of dudes. But this is an abusive relationship, I mean, abusive relationship I mean, we're seeing it through those is not saying Jimmy Stewart is bad in this movie. But I am to say as a thought experiment. Wouldn't it be fun to swap Jimmy Stewart out with, like inactive who might have more chemistry with her? We could actually picture her being like yes, I would give up everything to be with you. I just think there is something really universal. I think that, you know, a younger woman is viewed as a sign of youth, and it's all about what she does for him, if they did have more chemistry then it's a romance. This is not a romance. This is a man who doesn't care what she wants he has defined her in the beginning, and then found this woman and his, redefining her to fit what he wants. He has. She has no saying it, it's like just do what I want you to do. And I feel like you see this. Element to him where it's like I don't care it you want, like I want this, and I, you know, at one point, that's all true. Totally true. Like I totally believe in the beginning like Jimmy Stewart is never really in love with metal. And because there is no matter what. Give somebody doesn't exist this. I'm not saying that I want this to be the model of a good relationship at all. I think the fact that we try to make everything. Good is really frustrating. This is about a battery ship totally I'm just saying, when everybody watches this movie through Jimmy Stewart's point of view. There's a little bit of me that wants to be in judy's point of view in item, not totally. There are you're, you're saying, and it's not her movie. You know, it's all about how Jimmy needs to possess this woman, and, like, almost, I feel like anytime you would see her with a dialogue scene when he's not around. It wouldn't make a difference. I mean, yes, totally I'm not demanding reality firmness. And all I'm just saying that this is another example of the movies that do not understand female, desire, do not really think of it beyond things of guilt, and obligation. And this girl must be lonely until this dude knocks on her. She has a full life. We see her with friends isn't that why this movie is a little bit strong because he wouldn't even think about her point of view. It doesn't make a difference. You know. The story he's telling it's like she is a prop in this man's world. And I hear you're saying I totally get it. But I think it almost makes the film stronger, because it's so on the knows that it's like if she had more of a dynamic point of view, it would almost lose that so personalized vision of this movie like this guy, which is totally. You're right. That's true. I think that's true. I think it's just the agony of her being like I will change myself are. It's terrible if she was looking at, like, rock Hudson, or even Humphrey Bogart. I'd be like, yeah, yeah, I just want a little bit of. Yeah. I just want to be like, yeah. Right. I get it right. I mean it makes more tragic that he's not. Have you ever? I mean. Have I ever this guy's myself as somebody else, and then run back into the man that I know I, I was gonna say, well, you know what? I was gonna say, yeah. You'll never get my DNA. I feel like some of the worst mistakes I ever made when I was dating. We're like making these weird compromise it look back on it. Now fuck why would I ever do that? Like at one point, I literally considered moving to Florida. Yeah. And, and no no offense to Florida but I was working as an actor at that point. And I was getting some success in giving it up give it up because a girlfriend that I was dating wanted to go there, and I literally justify device, it was like, maybe I could like work at like Walt DisneyWorld or something like that. One of the thing about that. Now, it almost makes me nauseous, like I don't know why. But in the in the throes of that, that relationship the idea of breaking up with this person seem. So, you know, it's not me it's not even me a reflection of meat in that moment. It was dislike the desperation of that moment. I don't know. I just feel like I defy with that shit decision that you make sometimes when you're little loss than I think relationships can do that, too. Yeah. I totally do too. And I appreciate that vertigo gives us a chance to talk about all that. Yeah. I really do. I really do. I was just saying maybe he's miscast maybe but by the way, but by the way, I will say that the first thing that I notice in this film, and I don't know if it's because it's color or whatever choose to it looks old. He does old to me. I mean look like he could have gone to college with midge will midges fifteen years younger than him, too. I mean college when we were in college together way, I mean, although that doesn't stop most. I mean, we, we can get into a whole world of how men are always mismatch. With their female counterparts. But here's one thing I want to talk about in regards to all this. We're talking a lot about how Hitchcock was making a movie that potentially is his point of view or version of it. But here's a man who is known for being a taskmaster known for really driving his leads insane. But here he doesn't do it to Kim Novak. He doesn't do it at home. She said I had a great time with him. I, I he barely gave me a note. She said, I knew how to calibrate my performance based on what I saw on Jimmy Stewart's is. Yeah. And ain't people talk a lot about like the few times. Kim Novak navy raised her hand and complained everything. One of the big things is that Kim Novak didn't wanna wear a grey suit because she felt like blondes, look bad in grey that she looked bad in gray, which is exactly what Hitchcock wanted. He wanted to blonde to looked a little weird just want to say I like wearing grey, I didn't know blondes couldn't wear grey, earthly looks great and Greg. I think she scraping by the way, the costumes designed by Edith head. I mean, and that's just. You know, I think the costumes are beautiful in this movie. I mean they really are. Because I, I really actress with the white coat and a black scarf and they play with, like the ideas of color in such an insane way. Like, I really feel like it's just like what you said they, they're psychologically jarring. And I think that was like, what Hitchcock was trying to do. Yeah. So it's weird because whenever people talk about the making of this movie. They're always like Kim Novak was mad about the suit in only like well fine. Yes, it also. They talk about how Kim Novak was on strike when the film started, you know, Kim Novak, by the way, I find really interesting. There's a good biography about her. If you ever wanna read it, and, you know, her whole story was, she was just a pretty girl who kind of does like an appliance model. She would be like at frigerator display being like Hello. She was voted miss deep-freeze like imagine she winds up in Hollywood. You know, at this time when they're looking for another beautiful blonde to, you know, make sure they have a backup, Maryland case, anything goes wrong with that one like, how do we make another blonde in the studio system? And it's Harry Cohn at Columbia, total dick bag. Who made a lot of great actresses made a lot of great films. But he basically was like, I'm gonna make this girl over for sure. And he kind of picked her out almost as like Bill last one. He was going to do this, too, because the students this diet at this point. And so they had big fights about things like he wanted her to change her name. He didn't want her last name to be Novak you thought it was too ethnic interesting. And she refused, she kept her name because she had this kind of attitude of, like she didn't die to be an actress. It wasn't like the sole goal of her life was, so she could walk away any minute. She didn't really care. And so Kim Novak was really used to like push poll of fighting against a man who is controlling her. In this case, it was Harry Cohn like Harry Cohn would stake out where she lived and he would have like guys watching the entrance and exit her house to make sure she didn't go on a date with anybody. She wasn't supposed to go on dates with and actually when this movie was like coming out when it was getting ready to go into production. She had just fallen in love with Sammy Davis junior, and Harry Cohn killed that he was like you are not allowed to get married to induce junior. Do know what that would do to your career. And he was just. Controlling everything about her life. So she went on strike. Right win this movie was about to start because she realized that Harry Cohn, get this, this other studio system, worked, because this wasn't a Columbia film, paramount was paying Harry cohn's Columbia. They're paying him two hundred and fifty thousand dollars for the rights to use Kim Novak in this movie two hundred and fifty thousand dollars and you know what Harry Cohn was paying Kim, Her cut. He was only paying her twelve hundred and fifty dollars a week. So she was like, are you kidding me? So she went on strike at the beginning of the film. And she was like, I'm not going to do this until you pay me more. You the original actress who's even supposed to do it before. Kim Novak was VERA miles. Contender. We'll VERA miles gets pregnant so Kim Novak's brought in. But then Kim Novak is busy shooting. And they promise her like a vacation after she's done shooting, and then VERA miles like, actually, now I've had my baby and I'm back. Let's put me to work, and then Hitchcock kind of pulls a Hitchcock is like, no, we'll do Kim Novak instead. And so he still is playing these games with his leads, but it's it's interesting like what this movie would have been with VERA miles. I think Kim Novak is a better choice. I mean they got so far with the VERA miles thing, do they even painted that Carlotta painting with very mild face like that actually exists. I made in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight Kim Novak was like the bombshell like she was though, what everybody was in love with her. She was like the nineteen Fifty-eight vision of just sex. God totally see in that scene, where he like takes her out from the water, and she's like in his room in the bathtub, you know, in her in that bag, he's a little bit of a creep. Right. I mean, I feel like him undressing her. Putting her in the bed. It seemed slightly creepy to me like it, there's an interesting mix of creepy not creepy in that scene. Right. 'cause that seems starts with this pivot kinda like the silence of the lambs turning around and what you see is, I got his apartment, the swank magazines UC hall her underwear hanging up in the kitchen, Lincoln's dry. So, you know, she's not wearing it any panorama and see her in bed. And then when he comes into the room, she super-normal about it, and that was actually not hitches choice. Those the production code production, code was like you can have her naked in his bed, but you need to make this as unwired as possible, so they made him have her be on ruffled about it and act like it was not a big deal because if she acted like a big deal if she had more of a human reaction to, like, oh, God. I'm naked insa man's bed, then there would be more sexy. They didn't even want to highlight how unnerving it was interesting. I mean, I think going back to what you talked about earlier. That's the same reason why that bra seen is the way the bras scene is. We're talking about the cancer lever bridge, and everything that, that is the production code saying, it can't be that sexy. You can show a bra you could talk about abroad, but you kinda take the sex away from it. And in a weird way, I think it helps inform. The scenes a little bit because they're are a little bit more stilted now more surreal, which is yes. Yeah, but you're the one person in this world who is not surreal is midge, who is just watching his whole thing, go down and being like excuse me, you don't think this is weird. I mean listen to midge when he explains what's happening, what his new job as you haven't told me everything, I've told you enough. What was the guy who's the wife out? I've got things to do. I know the one that phoned your old college chum Elster out. Please I is at the beautiful man Karas come back from the dead taking possession of his wife. Oh, no, Johnny really come on. I'm not telling you what, I think I'm telling you, what he thinks. But what are you saying? She pretty call oughta know not. Qarbata. L Stras wife. Yes, I guess, should consider that she would think I'll go take a look at that portray a couple things like Mitch, by the way, is added to this movie super late realize, yes, he's one of the last additions in the script because this will movie without midge was more just like Boise's girl boy, loves girl. Boy follows girl girl dies boys betrayed by girl again. And when Jimmy Stewart read that script, he has like it's a little too weird in so in one of the last drafts in his third writer with Samuel Taylor Hitchcock in Taylor, Taylor, specifically came up with this character of midge as a person, in this film, who's not insane. Basically, to have a person in the film that like you can relate to and that is speaking, sort of the truth, that is grounding this in any sort of reality, and they did that to try to get Jimmy Stewart back on boards at this film was in so weird, you know. And she never by the way, even met him on the set because all they're seeing heart, but she has that fantastic seen just right after this, where she sees Kim Novak run out of Jimmy Stewart's apartment after she's like wet and he's on the phone. And you just see her try to keep her face calm and a little bit of a quiver in just side. She's going to be okay with it act. Okay with it. And it's this delicate little moment that I love so much. What was interesting in the original ending of the film lead, one seemed tacked on which was, you know, after Kim Novak falls to her death again or guess the real, you know, really foster death in the original end you would go back to midges apartment, and she's listening to a radio report about the pursuit of Gavin Elster across Europe. She switches, the radio off Scottie enters the room, they shared drink, and look out the window and silence. And, you know, they said that, that may have been shot, because it was part of the production code administration that you need to, like catch the bad guy. But I love the fact that she's his home, like he goes back to her. It's like art will now she's dead midge. What do you got if the love of my life is dead? I'll go back to number two who. Will always be waiting and there she is waiting for him. But there's also this kind of interesting thing in the film, where I think the film kind of playing with, like two different ideas of what working woman hit is. You know, you have the rejected Mitch who has like our own career doesn't need him, isn't just like listen to the scene when Scotty first meets Gavin Elster, you know, the rich guy in the way Gavin talks about the past. So I decided as long as I had to work at it. I come back here. It was like to how long have you been back? Almost a year you liking. Well, San Francisco's changed things that spill San Francisco to me disappearing. Fast. All aid. Yes, I should like to live here in color. Silence. Freedom. Shouldn't you be sitting down? I just love that moment because it just shows like we're always living in a world where we're upset at the changes that have gone on. I wish it was like like he wants to be old. Servers go people right now on the old San Francisco like it, you always wanted to be like the way it was in your youth. I thought that was very interesting point of view, or just a way show. Kind of how things never really changed. Yeah. Like, even that earnings restaurant, they're always going to this movie with the red velvet. And the tapestries and everything. I mean that's not what a restaurant looked like in nineteen fifty eight. If you were San Francisco, that restaurant was sort of, like, also going to like trader Vic's or something. It was a customer stran-, as like the gay nineties is in Francisco, like, but when you went there, like ha ha they've got electric candelabras, isn't that funny? And then one of the other things that else are reminisces about is like when he's talking about Carlotta you know, this is like San Francisco figure who was the woman who fell in love with the rich guy. And then when he dumped her and left her pregnant with a kid she went crazy, and you sort of reminisces about it. He's like, you know, back then a man could just like take a woman, and then leave her. And that's what you could do as like reminiscent nostalgic for this past at the same time even though it's kind of what he's doing in effect to duty a one hundred percent. What he's doing. I mean d is foreshadowing exactly what he's doing. And by the way, doubling it because he's killing his wife and he's like living, fine. And he's like dumping his mistress. This guy is getting shit done. Yeah. I mean, if you think about what this movie is, it's sort of, like two, guys also being like women are crazy, right? Yeah. Makes sense. She's crazy women as he can't really predict them. And then after the wife dies after the Madeline dies. They have a jury decide why she died. The jury is all made of men here they are coming to their verdict. We'd be diverted. Thank you. The jury funds that Madeleine else to committed suicide while of unsound mind verdict would be so recorded dismissed any I'm not saying this is a problem of the movie at all. I want to be really clear. I'm not saying like how dare this movie be sexist? I was thinking this movie is sort of about sexism. It's I should leave. Yes about it. I mean that movie is to feminism, what the courtroom scene into kill Mockingbird is about racism men being like yeah. Women were crazy. We have let me ask you a question. Do you think Scott is a good detective? You know, I don't think he's good detective because he never looked at a picture of Elster wife. He just waited out front for a woman who matched the description of her, and then went off and went to four like it would seem to me. You would build some sort of profiling system to make sure you're not just following a random blonde and you learned. Nothing from Chinatown. Oh, come on. Get on it. Yeah. I mean look, he loses her in the hotel, which I don't understand what that magic trick was, which it says, Syria. It's so surreal it makes no sense. But was she trying to lose him? What actually happened there that she of the keys to the real apartment? How did she sneak past the woman who was sponging off her flowers? I don't know is speaking of disappearing I love that shot where they go to the woods together, and she walks behind a tree, and you see this tear in his face. Like, did she just vanish? It's like watch you have kids, it's like. Like toddlers being tested for objects when you hide an object and they're suddenly like, oh my God, that ball is gone. It's behind the it's binding up. It must be gone forever. And there's something in his face. That is so childlike raise, like I he's reverting to basically being an infant around this woman. He also has experienced it in the past where she can disappear in an instant. I mean she leaves his apartment, she's up in that hotel. She's always kind of vanishing. He can't hold her. And that's what the second half of the movies about, like not only am I going to hold you. I'm never gonna let you go now and I'm gonna make you what you want, like, almost he gave her too much freedom. This episode of unspoiled is brought to you by Toro. Yes.

Go get driving. We know about let's take a pause really fast in talk to a Hitchcock expert, somebody who has written three books on Hitchcock. They've in Alfred Hitchcock's movie making masterclass. They've in the making of Hitchcock's the birds and they've written a Hitchcock and the making of Marnie. Please welcome. Tony Lee morale. Well, so, Tony, you, you write books yourself. And one of the things I really want to ask you about the Hitchcock, approach is what would you say the differences between mystery and suspense mystery? He always said was an intellectual process like a who done it. A mystery could be, for example, who stole money at a Bank suspense. He always said was an emotional process, and he always used fee example of a ticking bomb, if you know that there's a bomb under a table, and it's going to go off in five minutes. Suspense, it's an emotional process. I mean the idea. He was driven by emotion. I find that really interesting because I wonder like when we're in an era right now. I you take plots really literally, you know, audiences a sort of trained to be like looking for plot holes, but I mean I feel like Hitchcock. Would he encourage us to scale back on the literal -ness of his films in get more into the emotional dream state? Oh, absolutely. I mean, he was often criticized by critics and people of his day for kind of coq, and bull stories fall fetch stories and that goes, a prime example of that he wasn't concerned with the critics, all of the festivus nature about solving every arm, sir, in film. He he wanted to create an emotional dreamlike state. He wanted to the audience for, like, a roller coaster ride or a trip to the haunted, funhouse, unveil films like this go, Mani, see premature samba Savat, because they are very dreamlike. And as we talk so much about Hitchcock's blondes. But what are the things that you really point out is Hitchcock's favorite color, which is something we don't talk that much about it here in vertigo. It seems very much to be green. Yes. His his favorite color was green, because I got that from the wardrobe mistress Rita Ricks. Worked on the bed psycho Amani he decorated his house in Bala shades of green. It was very cool. Calming colorful him. And this also of the state the color of the afterlife. So when you first see modulation can Nate back in earnest restaurant, she's wearing this beautiful emerald. Green dress a late. So she drives her green coffee hills in San Francisco, and the most famous sequence in batch guys, when she appears as motley once more trust in this grey, suit and Hitchcock in the film up, the empire hotel in San Francisco, because they had this big green nail light. So when she comes out to the bathroom with a head up dresses magic, when it's like a ghost. She's paved miss green lights from the nail on and say that was a hit important for Hitchcock. What was his relationship like with kinetic? I, I lost feud can they've Cup? Years ago, the count film festival, and she's got nothing but admiration now for Hitchcock. She has any very fun was to say about him because she, she appreciates the importance of vets-go untaped place in film history. I also interviewed the production manager. He said he post away, now his name was dock Eric's, the and he said that Kim's view has changed. Yes. Because when she filmed got she was twenty four and she was obviously, a feisty strong headed blonde who who's just being Provea studio system herself that Columbia with Harry Cohn. And so she had very firm opinions about what she would wear what she wouldn't want to the Hitchcock had firm opinions. So it was kind of a meeting of two firm headed individuals in Hitchcock one out. But I mean, none of Hitchcock's films with Tippi Hedren her on the list. I know that they Euler sort of specializing as you would a book on the birds a book on money. I mean in those performances in the actresses themselves, and what they brought to the film. How'd you sort of compare 'cause we talk about Hitchcock blondes like their monoliths? But what do you think tippy was doing different than Kim? Kim was more of a say more of an experience actress she had more films onto her about. Tapie was a complete Annetjie that need on commercials. The famous story is that Hitchcock high in -sego dot drink commercial and said, I'm gonna make this girl is star and say he's leaf because he felt that the bird stood need any stars. He was the star the birds with a star and hit. Remember he just on psyche, which made eighteen million dollars at the box office? And so his belief was anything he could touch returned to go if he really wanted Grace, Kelly and Cary Grant through rose, but they went to a liberal, but Kim Novak, I think the general consensus is cheap brings an enormous amount to power vets guy. Many critics believe she, she would be an even greater than what their Amal's could have done with a row because of presence of Paju -ality a US snows. And she really catches this. Spirit, Judy the Scheldt gal in particular. I mean, do you think if Grace Kelly hadn't become a Princess, he would have just committed himself to her for the rest of his life in terms of his star? Well, he always, he always wanted a definitive Hitchcock lawn, but remember hit just going through the same prices with Ingrid Bergman who will sit three threesomes and Ingrid Bergman similarly banned him for Rossellini the Italian director, she married bus with with Grace Kelly. He was in Ahmed by her because she became a Princess and savy state, avai friendly relations. He would go visit with alma in Monaco and say he was he was very much, you know of grace being a Princess and he was often Janko rose grace, but she's off being a Princess, so he always said the find the next Grace Kelly. So he tried with their mouths and then somewhat with either married. Saint in no fighting off west who is very fund off event, sign they tip headroom. Here's my big question is like, you know so well that vertigo is gone to this rise, and fall in, in esteem from critics esteem from audiences and after being mixed in bumpy. It is now just ascended, you know, some people put it at number one on the list of the best films, ever made do you think that he would be surprised to see how vertigos received today or I think it was a very, very personal film for him. And I remember someone complimented him on that guy. And he had tears in his eyes because it was really not by critics time. And he withdrew from circulation, partly as a financial means to secure success when it was late to re released, but I think he it was certainly my personal to hitch, always, quote, shadow of a doubt is his favourite film, because of a small, it's his first time. Really American film, where he encapsulates of kind of small town America. But this is certainly his most personal where he puts his failings up on the screen, and he looks up at you -ality of women and basically, the nation of romantic love, and the idea that we are in love with an image quite often. 'memorial person we create this image about us, and often very disappointed when you find up for tree passed onto Nayef image. And so, I think that's possible reason many, particularly male critics like that guy. But when you look at female critics, who, who admired that to get I think they see it very much. Critique of male patriarch key over. Wave women are treated, but we'll say they will say I think understand that hitch coke is very much women's side. And he really makes. Study of the objection of women in patriarchal society of how women have been at dated in my boss. And he's very much pro heroin. I think that's why he makes a famous reveal two-thirds way free vet guy of Judea really is. She really is pretending to be mild Lin Amelia's snows about, but, but Jimmy Stewart character doesn't, and that was a really big decision on Hitchcock's pot. Dave, Adam studio against that because they wants to save the reveal to the but in doing that to feds way, maybe you're now looking at Jimmy Stewart's character, and you'll really looking at him as a very sick man and, and wondering what's going to happen, but you have say much sympathy for GD of his point because he realized that she is just being taped they manipulated by this man. Was like a dull. And so I think Hitchcock was very clever and he did stood similar things in tourists. With Ingrid Bergman, you feel great sympathy for the suffering heroine because she again, she's being manipulated by the Mamat. She loves Cary Grant my personal favorite Hitchcock film. And it I can't say it's the best. It's just my favorite is to have a tour. I don't know why love this movie so much. I have always thought it was fun, but you seem to really stick up for Marnie. And because that's not a film on this list. I'd love to just hear your passion plea for people taking money seriously and putting it sort of back in the list of the best Hitchcock films. I said, so money when I was eighteen at university of stirring, zoology and psychology at a time. And so it was very much the Mark Rutland character and very, very interested in Freudian analysis in very interested in instinctual behavior. So what's great about Hitchcock films? They may mean different things to you at different pairs. Of your life. Same seed money for couple of years to probably about five or maybe ten years now, but I still still enormously important film to may because of the way Hitchcock uses cameras technique, those yourself in subjects have states. So you really see what Monti's failing for the various zoom lenses red suffused, shins flashbacks back projection. So it's very much filmmakers, film, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to. Hitchcock's Jin today is the best film. I would say that would be no final west. Because for me that is definitive Hitchcock, because of it sent to share entertainment value and production by these as well. I think no binding of west is pup. So we'll Tony it has been so interesting talking to you. I really appreciate you make it ended up to us from all the way over there in England. Take it have a good evening. Bye. Bye. I, I was wondering if he did any researcher, defend any research because I didn't about kind of the way the movie looks, but that scene in the Redwood forest is, is so beautiful, and, and the lighting in this movie, you know, like the green coming in from the, you know, eliminate from the neon sign on the hotel, so beautiful. But then there's a scene in the graveyard which is so diffused and almost looks as if it was an accident, because there's other sequences that are so clean and clear. I was wondering that, too. Honestly, like there's so many things in here that just seem blown out with this white that I associate right now with low budget digital film-making where they go and get the white stark enough, where it just everything seems kind of faded it, but it's hard for me to think that he would want that to happen. It feels like sort of there's ghosts in the air spirits, and this is me feeling like I'm rationalizing something that I don't know why it's, it's, it's also dreamlike Meena were following the Cy kind of this fantasy. I mean, some people have even suggested that this movie is Jacob's ladder scenario something that we talked about it a lot on. How did this give me that like this is all in Jimmy Stewart's head, although I don't quite understand how they see that they say that he actually died and these are the final thoughts, but it would be a very convoluted way to have final thoughts, because he's not even Ned half of these characters to have final thoughts about, I think it's almost Ozzy and the scene had I always think about is where he's like tracking her at the very beginning. And she goes in this really great alleyway in the cameras like soaking in. It's like look at these gross bricks. Look at this dirt everywhere look how ugly, this is there's no sun, and he opens the door, and it's like boom, technicolor, flower shop, and it's again another shot of a man staring at this woman just obsessing over. What is she doing every time he kind of sees her? It's in a in a way, that is a little bit magical drew. Seem like colorful, bright. And I think if we want to draw a line over to his psychotic break, which is one of the most visually interesting sequences in the entire film. You know, when he's in that hospital bed, you have his face, and, you know, and the spinning, and this amazing computer animation, that goes on the sequence with first movie these computer animation, tending into other faces it'd be one face, and it's another face. I mean, can you imagine being in the theater in nineteen fifty eight and getting to watch that? Oh, it's I mean, in that you get from the opening of the movie like the game. We talk about that face the beginning, then you get into those spiral, graphs that are going around, like everything is about unnerving you in even the climactic kiss of the film. He the camera rotates around them, and we're going back into the past and we're back in the room. It's like this is a master filmmaker it's a really interesting choice for him. And I feel like because of the reaction of this movie he moves away from this, what would have happened if people would have. Said yes to this, you know, native loved it as much and fifty eight as they do. Now. Exactly, would we've gotten different films. And he makes a lot of choices. And I think the reason why it's so well, regarded now is because inadvertently he's pretty much influenced so many directors from storytelling, and from a visual point of view. Yeah, I mean that's shot of just him kissing her in the room swirling around him. In him showing you through image. What's in his head, you know, image and not even like in a way where you cut to inside his head in a flashback of, I remember kissing her here or something like that, or, or auditory flashbacks, which can sometimes I may not. I don't like it when like a scene just happens and half an hour later. They like replay like remember, don't go into the closet off. Hey, dummy proofing it's the word and that this is not dummy proof. Very this is like soil swells. Will you know that the stable is not buying them? And yet, they're it isn't, you know, everything he's thinking about in a way that this is pure cinema. This is pure cinema. That's what I'm saying that this movie. In many respects while citizen. Kane is kind of revolutionizing cinema. I think that this movie is, is playing in that same world. It's, it's, it's kind of saying, no, we know all this can we do even more of this. You know it's. May I mean in my world, vertigo will supplant citizen Kane on this list over my dead body and over my d'appel, gainers dead body over my Dabo. Gainers d'appel getting, here's dead body. I think citizen. Kane is wonderful, but I love the spritz of weird perfume that vertigo adds to the list. I one hundred percent agree. I think if I was to be asked today, which would be long on the top, I think you have to go citizen. Kane, only because it's when it was made how it was made in what it brought forward because citizen Kane influences vertigo. It includes his his Hitchcock. Like these are, you know, they are the most hated to go. But I mean but you know what I'm saying? It's like when something is so lauded for so long you're looking for reason to knock it off its perch, while do we really think this through is, is in Kane, really the best movie ever made. And that's a very you know based on everything we've talked about here. We've seen some amazing films. I still think the sum total of its parts. Make it the number one film, but you'll always be looking for that movie. It's going to try to take a shot at Macron's. Hip hop songs about this reached the top. Now, everybody wants to pick me take out, exactly. Pull a hip hop song for you. But I did Paul song film, the nineties band. Harvey danger for you. I realize where did. I know that name. And I was like, all right. Do it highly dangerous. Carlotta Valdes is actually about vertigo tape. Listen. Jimmy stewart? Yes. Fan. You can't swim on when you. Years. As someone who is in highschool in this came out. I've heard this millions of times, you know, and it was weird that this is a trend because there's also what about breakfast at Tiffany's saw. You know, there's all these kind of. All the time, because you don't agree on anything. That's a vase. I love it. But that like it's funny that this came about one of the other tracks on this album was I know Amy, you said, disturbing behavior is the vertigo of the nineties, right? The Katie Holmes movie, and that was, you know, of five pulse that are in that, so that's really covering the gamut of psychological thrillers. There's also like Mel Brooks is hiking Zaidi. Have you seen that, like, oh, yes, I mean, classic Mel Brooks film, and high anxiety really takes its poster from vertigo that face of Jimmy Stewart, you know, over an image rotating. It's so I have to play a clip of eyeing Zadie just because as Madeline Kahn. Richard Richard for world has gone crazy. I mean, nothing makes any sense anymore. I don't know what to believe, and what not believe my life is just all topsy turvy in one minute, you're singing, love phones, and the next minute, you're pumping bullets into an innocent man, and then is not you, it is the other hornbeck. I mean how much more girl take? I mean my nerve. Cracking, I feel like I'm going to I think I am going to ex-. Take it easy. Take it easy. I'm sorry, please, give me. I'm just so close to my menstrual cycle, but screen. That version of like a high strung seventies from Fidel nutcase is so perfect the blending that era into this. She's like in a head to toe. Like, I don't know. It was a Gucci print shouldn't head to toe Gucci Gucci car. Oh, did you see under the Silverlake yet? No, I have to too busy just kind of watching movies for this podcast called on full. I mean, what under the Silverlake does is like putting new are into the modern modern like I mean it's basically like if Jimmy Stewart was like a fuck boy of echo park or Silverlake. I mean it's perfect. And they figure out how to put into our character into this to like, how did just like nor can still exist on our world even though we think of it as thing that happens only in the forties. Jones through great job with that with brick. I think that there's so many examples of you can tell new our stories. It's it just sort of is, how can you subvert the genre? We're not in that nineteen forties. Hard-boiled thing you know. So what, what's the new version of that? I think there's plenty of plenty of things that even feel like new are. But they're not actually new are, you know, it's this person getting going on a journey me, we know this would be is received poorly. We know that this movie. Gets these mixed reviews. It does, you know, less than all of Hitchcock's previous movies. What was one of the, the worst reviews are one of those interesting reviews, I think this one because of the first line, this is from time magazine in mind, you this is in the context of this being roller. Alfred Hitchcock was actually maybe biz no one right now for doing that stuff on TV and the kind of theory of vertigo in a way it was that he had now become so popular mainstream on TV that he didn't have to do popular mainstream movies, he could do whatever weirdness he wanted soon away. Vertigo is like him expressing the things that he couldn't quite do on TV, and that is the context of this review at Hollywood's best-known. Butterball Alfred Hitchcock has been spread pretty thin in recent years. The old master now, a slave to television Hester another Hitchcock and bull story in which the mystery is not so much who it as who cares worked up from a novel by the French team that wrote the oblique and demonic the picture tells what happens to victim of vertigo when he meets a dizzy blonde. When she goes around and circles, he goes around in circles to until he falls are, then it gets a little bit applauded says he's trying to make a bunch of jokes, detective, Stuart saves it from the drink and takes her home for coffee with sugar soon. He's crazy about the girl but the girl is apparently just plain crazy. When does she lose him and jumps to her death? It's well, they would do all this, like, from the nearest steeple or does she if she does, then who is that redheads Stewart's? He's on the street about six months later, and then he gets me again, surely only Kim could look so be typically bovine by this time, the question is of little interest, particularly after a half hour or so of psychiatric disquisition that interrupts the plot in suspense, the suspense. If interesting, the review is so personal and I think it goes into his psyche. You know, you have a guy who I think is always being criticized for his weight in, in his stature, and I think there's a lot of health good. Does he have to be before? You can just refer to him in a pleasant way is a master filmmaker has been making films since the twenties. I think. They really might be thing where win. A filmmaker is doing work. That's not what you expect them to do. You don't know how to take it like you a film like this is messy. I'm gonna call it messy I think it is little messy. I think it drags. I think it strange. I think the pace is not clicking the way you think it's going to. It's doing whatever it was. And when you see a movie like this kind of like the way people react to under the Silverlake. You're like, what am I watching your resistant to it? You fight it the way people still think fight my personal favorite movie recent vintage synthetic New York as. Just like what am I watching, but and you want to just be like I'm smarter than this because I don't get it. But I also feel like this is the way I feel about Coen brothers films Kubrick films, Connie albums like on C case. But you, it's like you, you, you are looking for something, the last thing that you loved, and they're not giving you the last thing that you love. They're giving you a new thing. So part of watching the film is kind of like. Pulling back the expectation to experience something new. And I find that each one of these films gets better and better on another viewing when I did do a lot of reading about vertigo, most of the reviewers would say, like I didn't like this the first time I saw I fell in love at this later. I was even talking to one of my friends really talented director, and he said, yeah, I watch it once and didn't really pay any mind, and then I saw it again. What's genius? And I think we watching it and knowing where it's going and seeing where the beets are you? I love Coen brothers films. But I love them more on the second third viewing. And I feel that way with Kubrick films as well. And I think that's why a list like this is important because I think there's a lot of films that people might feel this way about, but they don't wash them second or third or fourth time. And that's why what we're doing is really interesting to me because it's like, well, what are we saying? You have to give another shot to this is one that I think people sort of willed themselves, I think even now I find myself willing myself to figure out why I like this film or. Why this film matters are? But I bet you there's a Simpson's nearest there is one of the main things of the Simpsons does do like a recurring visual sight, gag of the tower, which is, of course, really hard to show up in LA podcasting. But so what I fold is from an episode called Homer, loves Flanders it. What happens here is, you know, Homer, decides he's going to try to be friends with Flanders because Flanders always trying to be friends with him. Homer, gets a little bit obsessed with Flanders Flanders starts to have a breakdown in this scene picture, it, it takes place inside the vertigo clock tower picked it 'cause you get to your the madness going along with the visual. Here's homey, bears cover to her home. What's the matter net? I think I hate Homer Simpson. Like INCE hate. Ted coble. No wait. I find him informative in witty night. Wait a second. Is that more of a? I mean that's more of that shooter from the belt, the, it's a little bit UT shooter from the early nineties before we had our pickup shooters. Yeah. But it did other staircase. And it seems like the waking up from the dreams actually almost as close as I could do besides just visual stuff. Interesting. Just put a button on this Abell tower that they shot the, you know, the pivotal scene of this film in the climax, and the and the end was totally constructed using scale, models met paintings and trick photography because the original Cocteau are burnt down. And so they had no choice but to kind of do all these tricks to create that really kind of amazing set and you don't see that much, but you see a lot of glimpses tight close ups in that world. And I think in a way it makes it more confining a little bit more scary as well. And interestingly enough that view down the mission. Stairw-. Well seen cost nineteen thousand dollars for just a couple of seconds because I was such a complicated shot. So, you know, you would think first of all, I find a practical application, though, this is so heavily manufactured in a way. It goes to again show, his artistry in his specificity that it doesn't feel manufactured doesn't feel SETI this movie really transitions beautifully between sets relocations in a very seamless way. And in a way, that's kind of surprising. I think it's so weird is like this realism that you kind of see from Hitchin like wine to be a real locations. Yeah. He was actually using real people for a lot of this stuff like win win. Kim Novak Costa museum guards like. Yeah. Disappointing of Carolina. That's actually the real museum guard. Oh, you're looking around, like Ernie's in the shots were like Kim Novak is coming up to him in the, the people who are working at Ernie's are actually, like the owner of Ernie's end the food that all the extras are eating is actually. Food from Ernie's. He got like weirdly realistic about the strangest things in here. I love that, by the way, he also got very meticulous about a lot of the talked about that scene where she's staring at the portrait and the and the palace. That scene was a week to shoot that little little scene because he wanted the lighting to be just exactly right. I love that kind of crazy genius. Not a fun set to be on. But looks really makes it all. That much better. When you watch it. I think we talked about where it belongs enlist. If it belongs unless I think we both agree it does the top of the list. No. I mean I what do you think about the placement right now I think the placeman right now is us culture working something out number nine on the list. It's is a movie that is being pulled up and there's movies that are being pulled down. I, I think that, that Evan foes, were we want on the list, you know, maybe the list and in two thousand seven you know, this is at number nine, and then, you know, maybe it moves all the way up to number three but then another film the. In the top ten goes down to fifty. You know, I think we want this to be reflective of the generation, which it comes out in. So I think that kind of movement and not getting stayed is just a sign that this list is working in a good way. I kinda wanna treat vertigo and it's placed on this list, almost like when you tag like a wildcat near like a tag, this Puma, you're sort of watch for the Puma goes, either sort of learn a lot about who we are, what were thinking are terrain are mental terrain of landscape by just sort of following this one Puma. This is like one to track. I like it want to track. So next week is another very special episode for me in Paul. It is our look back at the top fifty where we're going to just besides going over the top fifty list and also seeing what our Facebook group had as their top fifty films in order pawn. We're gonna give out a couple of our own awards. Our own little many Oscars for the films that we've looked at this year. And also we want to hear from you guys. Wanna hear a couple of different things. What if the things I would really love to hear it says, we've all kind of gone on this journey together through half of the list, I'd love to hear from you. That is just like what's the number one film that just surprised you that you were like. Wow. I'm so that I watched that I'm so glad I realized that I keep thinking about that movie this year. I am so glad that this was on part of our list. I'd love to hear about that. And also, I look for you guys to give me a mash up elevator pitch it, what I mean by that is, like, pick a character from one of these films, pick a setting from another one of the films and just be like, oh, man. Here's my version of. A movie that I would make mashing up these two things together for me. Kathy Bates is unthinkable. Molly Brown from Titanic in the treasure serum Andre I wanna watch she could fuck some shit up over there. I like Kathy Bates. That's my elevator pitch. Gimme your elevator pitch. And as always, you're gonna make these two phone calls for your number one from this rally on your rain and your elevator pitch to seven four seven six six six five eight two four seven four seven six six five eight two four.

Why are you listening to the Nice guys on business? But case has channel Kim and can you say one other language. Now why are you even listening to the Nice guys on business? Simple cousy Kuti us.

Finish first. Doug Sandler can lead the way the Nice guys business is produced by turnkey podcast productions. Now here's your host Doug Sandler. You are recording. But you are texting. Are you texting while driving strictly text? It's funny that you say that because I'm actually texting while I'm looking at my car which is parked at home while I'm in San Diego and seeing that it is only ninety three miles charge and I'm getting a text my daughter to tell her to plug it in. Why can't you just text your car? It's just texture car. The plug is not like a snake that can automatically jump off the wall and plug itself in. I can't quite do that. I really do want to get onto apple podcast because I've heard over the last couple of weeks. We've actually received several more reviews. Five Star reviews from people that weren't weren't forced. Now it'd be great except for once we're actually not in front of a computer right now but we have. I'm just GONNA I'm GonNa Texture Tesla Tesla to look at the look at the reviews because I think that obviously is where I need to be. You think so well. Apple Comeback Trichomona on the other side of the microphone today on the other side of the band misconduct samba. Yes that's right. We're sharing a room sharing a bed. He's horrible but you did for warned me about your restless restless legs syndrome and your snoring. What the Hell is wrestles Lake Syndrome? Anyway it's it's an excuse to sell medication. I have it really do well. I've been told that I have. Jj will oftentimes say. Hey why do you shake your your what you shake your leg and I said that's not my leg backs here now. Where is that whole thing there in San Diego j the Allergy we're getting ready to learn about JV partnerships and all that good stuff so for once we're actually face to face right here in the state all together. This is incredible and I know I'm much taller on in real life. I'm sorry I'm sorry about that but I'm feeling good about it. We're actually I don't mean to correct you but since I do live in California we actually aren't in San Diego. We are in La Hoya also known as lawyer La Jolla actually north of San Diego. But like we're looking out on golf course and the beach and it's it's it's pretty pretty three dollars a night to park my car. It must be got a hate that part but I do like it because I am only five miles up the road in La in other words it was a two and a half hours to get here. I cannot believe how long it took to get here but you know what when I get in my car. Now when I drive anywhere I leave plenty of time meaning. I leave the day before and I actually. I don't get stressed out by the traffic. It's amazing the mindset that you that you that you work through when you live in L. A. You just say okay. I'm just going to get it. Don't ever go anywhere in La at a time of arrival. It's just going to happen. You literally could be five miles down the highway and it could take you an hour to get there yet. That's so. Jv Allergy. So you and I discussed this. Maybe four or five months ago When I went to Michael Neely's conference. I think it was in October. Maybe it was in September thinking about the opportunity to expand our business but not doing it the traditional way which is a call to action. We know we love you. Guys Nice Guy Community. We love you but she don't do is usually like the red headed wicked stepchild that we don't know what is your problem. What is your problem? Have we given you an inferiority complex? You don't WanNa do anything or maybe you know what we haven't actually courted them. Well enough we just haven't out. How should we them better? Well I don't know but I but let me just say this I go to everyone of Jj's live events and it is amazing. When I go to her events and these live events she could put thirty forty fifty people in a room and they all. They already trust her. They know her they like her. She there is no pitch. It's basically at the end of her conference if she has something that's GonNa be an extended or vp or something like that where they can get more involved and she's charging them to get their charges them to get their secondly when they get there. She doesn't have to Salome and third. She has a sheet of paper at the end. It says here. It's four thousand dollars. People just like okay here we go and I'm like she will convert it's so amazing. I'm not saying that I'm looking in. Our community is a dollar sign. But it's amazing the difference between a community. That's I love our community. Those that have been listening for the last five years and have taken no action about anything that we've done even our free things that we've offered. It's time it's time recognize us. We are like those. We're like STU who was it. Stewart from from family mum. Mum's e. I'm saying I'm saying hi. So are we like those. Are we like the mom? And we're just saying would you? Would you look or we'd like the kid that say. Would you look at me? Look at me look at me. Look at me look at me. And then when they finally look we. Just don't have anything for them. Maybe that's where we are. Maybe he of course it could just be that our topics are just too broad and we all the same guests that everybody else has and so entertaining but jj actually has things. She talks about the where people like bond to her. So you're saying the importance of relevant content. Is that what you're saying made that? So are you saying that? We're actually bringing are irrelevant content here to jv algae and try to match with other people that have more relevance than us so that we can actually figure out how to monetize some things that we have not monetize you. Well I think we've relative relative relative content we're in content and we have relevant services but I maybe maybe we're just not talking about our podcast production enough on the show and like what it can actually do. Or maybe they're all listeners. I've no fucking idea I you know I what I think it is. That we actually don't have a clearly defined path mart is the reason why we don't have a clearly defined path is because we don't really have a clearly defined offer that that's the case because we've had offers before maybe we've had too many of the wrong offer in our community so speak up. Nice Guy Community. What would you like to hear more of? What would you like to have? How would you like to communicate with? Apparently it's only two five of you for forty to forty two DJ. Doug none of whom WanNa start a podcast now. This wrong Jenny bellinger status true but we actually gave her a podcast Holon. There's there's a jared. Jared wanted to start even the course. So that's that's how we met. And then there's like Sean. Carbon Derby Sean. But he already had already doing so. Good maybe somebody can help from here. Yeah if you're in our hey I know there's probably there's probably some here. Let's do this. Let's reverse called action here. Strictly I would like to buy something. Okay Okay just follow me. I saw your face. You got all series. Let's see how this works. Let's just try. Let's just try. We have no call to action for someone to actually buy anything of ours. We would like to buy something from somebody in our community we would like to. We are genuinely interested in buying products and services from those that are in our community. And here's what I'll do. Here's here's what we will do. I would like to invite somebody that is in our community to share what they do on our show business. Podcast this is a show that has several thousand listeners per episode thousand plus episodes already out we have a we have a huge platform for for giving you the opportunity to share your message with the world. Here's the kicker you have the ability to sell. Whatever you are selling directly to me in strickland huge. You just have to come on the show and convince my community that it's the right thing to do if my community says that I should buy from you then we would might seriously consider what you have to sell. But it's got to start with them actually coming on the show and sharing their philosophy with us and their products and services. What do you think this is an interesting strategy? It's a reverse accountable action. I kinda like it and It would help if you didn't already have a podcast. Just say to say so everything except for that last part whether you have or don't have a podcast is is not relevant in this particular case but I am interested in having you on the show to share what you do with our community. We want to talk about the stuff that you've done. It's good the stuff that is still. You're still working on the same stuff that you hear about weekend and week out from the podcast. Let's do this. So how do you get there? How do you get? Let's see how would they? How would they share this with us? I would send them to the The end of the guest inquiry page. But it's GonNa get lost there because there's going to be so many well maybe we could have some like you need to put to to only or some secret word in there so we know that you actually listen to this podcast. And that is the offer that you are taking. Okay so here it is. There are several areas on the application. I look at every single application. That comes in most of them. Don't make it through the door because we are busy. We get a lot of them. Pink Tutu Pink Tutu. Oh wait a minute Tutu's optional. To do what are we usually? What were we doing for? Optional was the. That's what we did before like ages ago. Okay so we'll we'll do that again on the guest inquiry pages go to Nice guys on business dot com. That's it just click guest inquiry and in any of the comment area. Just put pink Tutu or two two optional to to just say the word to to to t- you think yeah and then we'll do it. I think we can do this. I think this is actually a. This is a good point. I don't know where it takes us. I don't know what exactly what he gets us but maybe some interaction. Yeah Yeah Absolutely. You know what else we can do what you know. There's a cocktail party. Starting ten minutes okay with all the other. Jv Go talk to them. We interview them right now. Oh we're going to do like little commercials for them. Well we could talk to him and just make the rest of the show. I mean this is going to be like a real business advice show. Maybe we shouldn't even aired on Friday. But you know since we have nothing else for Friday and that's actually tomorrow. We're recording it on Thursday. I'm editing it it's usually for you. Should we came up with the idea of having the Friday? Show be the show we we. We were ahead of the game six Just in the last time we recorded on Saturday I can't change the Friday. Took all right. So here's what we're going to do. The next sound you're going to hear is the sound of a cocktail hour. It's going to be the sound of clinking glasses of people enjoying themselves. And then of microphones being shoved in people's faces. That don't WanNA talks but we did it in an essay and I think we did a hell of a job to. I think we do too so we have no idea where this is going to go. But we hope it's entertaining and if it's not then. Hey Fuck you got your money's worth so here's what I think we should do. See those down there. What are those stand up? Stand up banners think we should take wanders to the cocktail hour right up next to and just stand there let people come on. What are you guys know? That probably would be too. It's too pushy. Sponsor is that we are sponsoring the event. We the ability to do that. We could wondering cocktail hour. That would probably piss off that that sponsor so. Why don't we just walk up to people and talk to them? We'll do that okay. So the next time you hear clinking glasses cocktail hour jake dug and strict nice guys on. Business. Don't take us out of here yet. See what Brian. We'll be right back so we promised we would be back with clinking glasses and indeed. We are here with with clinking glasses with a class right there. Is Those are not hourglass. Because apparently Larry. What's happened to keep her kids taking the tickets and run up to his room. Why Why oh? Why would the keeper of the bring them back? The the tickets are on the way back. So what happened to me where we were? We delayed in arriving. Is that why the tickets? J. Or were you responsible for the tickets. I drank all of the drinks. It's now a problem so that was the way that was the voice Davis. J Morgan Allege Ri- reason we're here yes well I dunno Jay's the reason why we're here I'm pretty sure your credit but Jay was gracious enough to allow us once we paid to drop in. Is that true Jay so I don't have a ticket for edgy as good talking to you. So what we were thinking about doing. Jay was actually where he's going to. Just pull up the The banner right here and we were going to do our podcast interviews directly from here and then we thought somebody might be sponsoring the the cocktail hour. We didn't want it. We want to offend advertisers. Me Oh oh jock is. I don't have a ticket. So does that mean. I should run back to the room. Get the banner bringing here. Set it up and by the time you get back. We'll have ticket-free free circle. That's insanity work. We've had permission from the chief Poobah here so I think we should do it. A little bit more notoriety for us again. We're pushing our way right so we've already interrupt three people and not even told them. Hey by the way this is going to be on. The podcast is coming out tomorrow. We should warn people before we throw Nash Podcasters. Though walking around the microphone is not feeling uncomfortable for me at all. I just feel like it comes naturally. Come up I thought it was a skipping rope. We do have the xl Arcadia stretch feel uncomfortable. It's that somebody might go. You know I am in the witness protection program and now they know where I am but we should ask at least permission. The way have you talked to originally up. I have talked originally wise in the witness protection program. No but he's very interesting has fabulous stories. Yeah originally actually. We had a conversation and he kind of walk me through the steps of what he does which was fascinating to me so fascinating that the information that he gave me stayed on my computer. He gave me specific instructions. What to do when I got here. I forgot all of them to show. It is amazing that you can still grow even a semi successful business. Forget everything you've been told for months true good point so if we have the banner then people at least we have to presume that if they come overseas with Mike and they see the banner that they'll know that there's any podcast I just WanNa point so that woman over there whose name shall go unnamed. But she's in blue and blue and has longer hair if you asked her to tell tell you the story of when she patted. Brad Pitt's easy. This is generally interesting. Area is a very good story and Gordon from well watches that and I will absolutely not going to put her on the spot but yes. We will absolutely absolutely do that. Because you know if those of you that have been listening to the show for maybe five years I think both of them they smell host everything and anything for my so. It's quite a the story all right well whereabouts adding Brad Pitt's you-know-what Nether region. No idea what it would be excited to hear more. I'll go get the banner. We'LL BE BACK Steve. O'brien don't take us out of here yet. We'll be back in a few minutes recording. They have somebody standing here so this is so we already housed me standing right here in front of our little area. So what is your name? Matthew McGregor Matthew McGregor so matthew did I. Did I get it wrong? No McGregor sorry highlander reference. Dating myself again absolutely absolutely so. So you're absolutely and that's cool. So have you seen any movies? Recently that would be the question. Four versus Ferrari or maybe faster than horses or more Brooks's Ferrario quite recently seen wait. Have you seen have you seen et? I I don't remember I have not seen yet. Have you seen anything beyond Star Wars? The empire strikes back now are not as strict. This is somebody that actually I can have a good conversation.

What year come out. Nineteen seventy six or seven. I know you didn't see that one. Either right Oh no so. He only he doesn't even know that about Darth vader. Then I think he probably rob swagger allergy live because this is. This is something that I'm really curious about somebody. That's that's like a business early knowing business right sure. Okay so what brings you here. Well what I'm really looking for our partners that are going to support me in launching a variety of programs products and services. And so my goal this week is to leave with ten conversations booked where we can talk about either setting up a Webinar. Doing some kind of launch together or how I can help. Their clients succeed in their businesses. Well it's true. I was just figuring out where I was. GonNa buy next Bond Kit from what? I was just showing this version year. Were you born again? Ninety Ninety eight so my son was born in ninety six. My daughters were born in two thousand and two thousand. So can you imagine just having the level of ambition that he has a where no? When did we start? I'm still waiting for them. And I'm I'm still waiting so told you over here because we're so sorry. We drinks down the most important thing here again. I haven't even had a sip yet. So you think that you can walk away from with whenever j just walked my drink. I don't want to put it down here. Put your drink down broadcast. I can't remember what the Hell we introduce yourself and tell us everybody who you are high end. Virginia MUSKIE'S REFERRAL DIVA AND. She is absolutely a referral. And as soon as I heard that she was coming I still came you. Just you just completely turn your back on on Matthew and all pretty much. Virginia's much prettier. That is very true. But you're you're accepted that that's okay to you very much so so Virginia as the referral diva wouldn't blazes name. Would you be here at? Jv Allergy Live for Pfizer. Eventually workers from my up coming is this by referral county. And I'm assuming that you're involved with this because you clap like you knew what you were doing. I'm just very excited for her.

Talked to him giving the microphone. So I do like funnels and websites and setting up confusion soft and all that good stuff confusions. Tell everybody how old you are talking about now. What you've been in business. I've been in business for four years. Yeah and so the last. Jv Sunday he gave away like this magnificent package. And then we all just started like referring people. So you've made like a million dollars since the last summit a very valuable question. I think it's a really valid point. Also so since we are newbies here at JV. Algae live and you're obviously seasoned pro coming here. It sounds like you've been at least one of these just Lord just one before what was. Jv Allergy live worth to you in terms of monetary amount sure. Yeah I'd say about sixty five thousand. That's significant out said.

Obviously you're not here just to supervise matthew to make sure that he's not doing anything wrong because he looks like two nights a kid to do anything wrong kid because I wish I was still a kid as matthew is right now. So you're here for your own business ops right. I am worked for Matthew and he doesn't work for me so we have our own separate businesses. And of course you know who who to. Jv Allergy live for the first time last time. Did you bring him or did he bring you? You know it was neither. Actually you both bound J. independently. I guess it's actually true. I loved coming to JV SUMMITS AND THEN WHEN J B. All all bloomed and all of that Mouth you that because it's such a big thing now And he wanted to go in and and see what it was all about and as you know. He's getting amazing results. Hopefully I love that. We just got some dollar amounts and I'm saying I WANNA come to work for Matthew. Is that even possible? It's incredible actually and I think to J. Ninety percent of my income which is multiple six figure income comes from joint ventures so for for Matthew to start to learn that process but not through me right but to watch me and to be involved in Jamie. Oliver is fantastic. Can I go from Canada? It's a boat. It's about the process. Nothing in front of you. I'm just pointing others. I'm here I don't even here on here. Does your totally just call you out on that Karen Right Karen. I'm going to call you out on that carrying you absolutely have a Canadian accent in that. Which was amazing because I thought initially when I heard a little bit out of Matthew and then I heard you like. Are you from homeland? So so where are you from Canada? Pretty close to where Jay Jason in Calgary. I'm in Vancouver. Says you ever seen letterkenny now the Hulu Show letterkenny brill? You have to try. You have to watch it. It's about a very small town in Canada. It's a comedy it's on. Hulu you check it out. I will do that when you went down. Completely South Path. I mean we were getting into. Business is normally when we get on our show. Stricklin just argue the two of us. Now we have four other people that we can actually argue with. This is the best thing ever circle way about. We need to talk to Karen later but like I don't even know what Karen Wakes multiple six figure. Why don't you hand with community entrepreneurs to be able to get results when they get on stage whether they're speaking for twenty minutes sixty minutes so really? It's about return on their investment in terms of every time you speak. That's your time. Is it actually closing stage or is it creating creating opportunity that will entire talk? It's closing its delivery. And it's it's really about booking. Speaking GIG says well. Here's where we would have a hard time strickland number one. I'm never leave. The House on stage occasionally gave us good. News is what I teach actually performs for Webinars as well. Oh man we gotta we gotta do himself as what are you thinking? I don't do as many live events as my mom but I do. At plentiful amounts of webinars which are is just effective and apparently he's also those websites which we need help with websites and he needs help with webinars that we need to give a plug for their business to the the three people that listen to our show right right go ahead so matthew tells you give a plug for your business. How people can get in touch with you absolutely so what you can do is you can go to clients conversion. Formula Dot com again. That's client conversion formula dot com and you can connect with me there. There's a bunch of awesome free resources. Content another podcast. There's all sorts of things you can check out and if you need support in taking your business online and getting into the multiple six figure mark then please reach team booker call. We can do all that sort of stuff and talk about that. No obligations obviously having support you. I wish we can figure out how to get matthew to be more clear about exactly what he does. I still don't know what I'd do exactly what he did. Joe Could you try to be a little more vague than your son because he was really too good at his job right there absolutely so speaker. Success FORMULA DOT COM. People can go there check out. It's a wonderful Webinar to teach people how to earn money. Speaking through what we do right here you know joint ventures and then monetize that done I think we just need help from them learning how to focus our message because I know exactly what both of them do from what they just said. I have no. I still don't know what we did do we. Do I know exactly what you do but I have no idea what we've been doing it for. Maybe what twenty years? That's terrible at anymore. Mccarron we're going to figure it out and he will tell us right now our community community your little pathetic right now just a little bit. I mean I love you but you don't do anything and now now I like to shame them into doing stuff with us is that it's probably not a good way right. You know what I think. You guys are brilliantly funny and you just banter like crazy so this is. This is a good start towards speaking. I wasn't always a good start. Bama Fast Finish your love Cairns hair. She's got this wild like it's amazing. There was right here. He's out exactly what I say with her son right here but you know he's over twenty one it's okay you can hear it so matthew in in the states joining here in the in the what would be called the territory state. Okay and the saints you you like the United States absolutely you you how close to. How many times do you get to come here a year? It seldom frequently pretty often a couple of times a year. You know. Most Americans don't have passports said you know that. Yeah. They don't like to go to Vancouver. I Know Orange County or go back and listen to episode. I don't know what number was you can hear all that. Doug accidentally crossing over into Canada National Park and then getting a whole lot of hassle coming back again. They don't they don't like that was like episode number two hundred ninety seven along thousand thirty or so episodes of our show now and we're still trying. We're working on our message. It's coming any day now. I'm happy to help you out. Help us all right. Let's come back. We'll we'll get somebody else will talk to somebody else Karen and Matthew to meet you. Thank you for being here. You being here. We appreciate you. Thank you very much okay. I'm GONNA pause so another drink. I'll be right back okay. Are you doing more? You can't do either? Well we heard that right on right on right on camera we got that. Wait hold on. Hold on a second genesis the long. Swoboda's that stretch. I like it more like no. It came from Jenny. I would like to be able to share exactly what just transpired but I just I just cannot because there's only about seventy people here in this all that you can't do. That wasn't the the fact that there was a kiss. It was the length of those came from Jimmy. Ballenger Jimmy loves it. Jedi loves you guys told me to give you a little peck on the cheek. And then some. She told she said to give you a little cheek. I didn't want to get into it with you. Know my my innocent ears. Mis We this is going back a couple of years ago and she knows the timid nature by which I approach life. Yeah pretty much pretty much So that's who we were talking earlier now also originally borough. Why don't you share a little bit about what you do who you are? And why the heck you're here at J. B. Allergy live. I came here to hang out with you. Wow that's Dan a couple of things number one I love the fact that he's touching me because one of my love language is of course is touch. The second thing is the dulcet tones. This is your second love languages touch. Your I love language is. We'll have exactly. I came here. Just hang out with. Is He's touching exactly so get this. I went to Bhutan. Time I've spun a baton baton ton is a country where what they measure is the gross national happiness as your product is just in the Himalayas right and so you fly in past Mount Everest. You cut in through the mountains. It's Super Shaky. You Land and you know baton. There are two stop lights in the entire country. It's kind of like Elsa Gunda. I and I went up to tigers net. So if you if you look tiger's nest online you'll see it. You have to hike all the way up. A mountain down a Gal and superstars and super crazy and then you get there and the monks that hang out. There are there for three years three months and three days without ever leaving tiger's nest unless there's an absolute medical disaster was interesting the monks that I've met Nelson. No they're usually there for the weekend and it's full of partying at South. Who's all right? Oh Man I don't even get that what. How so. You've actually had a chance to meet monks before so what happened was I got there. And it's a way for lunch and the monk comes up. What do you normally does he? He takes his little finger he puts his thing and he puts a little DAB on your on your forehead and he blesses you and off you go in four seconds or less even though he's there for three years three months heard as he's in hurry second it was lunchtime right and they have to empty the monastery at lunch for an hour. According to the law he looks at me and said why are you here and I looked at him straight in the eyes and I said I came here to meet you and then we spoke to twenty minutes paying attention to the other mercy on some level. Are You GonNa Somehow Tie that back? Because I thought I knew I thought you were gonNA. You're about to make the corner and I will about connecting and and making connections so bringing in bringing home for me originally I was GonNa make you take it. Even further outside picking a deep dive whatever either direction. What school is. If you're a serious martial artist the one reason why you like to have your hands on somebody if you could take him out right. So he's about raspberries about the slim. Our heads to you know that the original handshake. Yeah do you know why a handshake shake in ancient times was I am holding no weapon? I am not really a weapon. I'm showing you that. My hand is empty so basically that show of peace. So it's the same thing as originally. He's got his hand on her shoulder. He's like this is my defensive position because in case you do some crazy move. As long as I have physical contact with you. I could crush you right now. The second was that a good analysis. Originally it kind of works like that. Yeah I love so the question originally like voice that I would that I would be asking is and I think you probably know the question. Same Question I asked many of the people that come on the show. And what is the question circling? Why is it that you don't have a podcast? Your Voice I mean I just. I read their own book ridgely. Well you know yeah I think I probably should have podcast something. We should consider some we talk about. The there is a joint venture partnership involved in that somewhere down the road I had we get behind the sitting at a table earlier with richly. He is absolutely one of the people that we WANNA talk more to over. The course I've had a conversation with ridgely and I don't even remember how we actually originally connected on that conversation but it was one of those that I was very rare that I actually take notes during conversations so I was taking notes. He sent an email. I have a whole series of sentences. He gave me like like I hold a second. You wrote some stuff down. You even emailed it to me after and it was something like in the beginning the stuff that came immediately to you g you like close relationships or partnerships argue is trust important to you. Trust is very important to me or something you remember. Do you remember any of the lines. Of course it starts out like I'm Doug Sandler and I believe in relationships that are based in trust. Oh my gosh. She even remembers the conversation which means that he is either a wise man. Or He's he's gotten says the same things over pretty wise. I think the first thing is originally is a guy that we need to get to know better over the next couple of days but the second thing is in the course of the podcast we need to have more stories that will top the previous stories. I think the only way we're GONNA talk that monks story rise if we talked to Ann about stuffing. Brad Pitt's copies. That's the only story that I can think of that. Would top the muck swimming. We'll tell you when I spent a year at a monastery with about is about the top. Vinnie monks because my mother. I was one of those bad kids that you never wanted. Your kids to how he was at boarding school was at boarding school with walls. That were seven yards thick in one of the eight wonders of the world in Full Lake. Robes what did you. What did you do to get there? I created a bomb. Blew up wall. That exploded this whole bunch of dirt all over a road that block the road and my mom got really upset about that. I was sixteen. Did you really do why the beauty of it is originally is I would say originally probably in your forty s originally with what you said it was? It was free nine eleven so I'm thinking it was pretty really today. If you were to do that he would be in jail for the rest of where I grew up Francisco Franco. The dictator was in charge. And the town that we lived in built fireworks they built rockets so they built the ones that at the end of those fire displays where the whole sky lights up all right. That's what they built in my town and if you live there you can go buy them at wholesale and I went down and I bought a bunch of them and I put them together and put a wire around them and pulled all the rockets off and put one fuse and creative mom because my stepfather beat the shit out of me on a regular basis and I was like this really dark. Turn a really really dark turn this business and and then they sent me away to the monastery all right so we we obviously have some additional stories to tell Atlanta win. Ridgely comes on the show might be supposed to say. I think this is one that you end is should be. It should be doing together when I agree. I one word Chris before we wrap up with originally okay. I happen to know really speaks five languages so in in some other language other than English could you say? Why are you listening to the? Nice guys on Business Channel. We're not and can you say one other language now. Why are you even listening to the Nice guys on business? Simple sooner business right there. That's the you know what we gotta do. We gotta get that studio quality so we gotta get him in a when he comes in records on our show. We'll get into maybe the entire intro and liked it. I'll tune in. It'll be like what the fuck is show and Shit Right. I love this. This is so before we wrap up you. Tell us what you're about and how people can get in touch with you if they want to talk to you about like your amazing service but bookable as he is doing that. Could you do it as a as an interpreter? Like someone that comes only if I say in a different language and then come back and say the shame. Say What if what if I did it with the accent of one of the languages that I speak. Okay that's fair. That'll that'll that'll be fine. And at the end of that could you? Just say Steve. O'brien take us out of here. That'll be fine okay. Whenever you're ready for the strict during the Mike Okay so what I do is help the people to figure out their mind. Thank you know. They're superpower that Kryptonite where they come from. Why the rest of care about it. You know because otherwise people irrelevant and I WANNA make people that are relevant relevant and I want them to have clarity so steeple. Brian take us out of here is originally. That was great. We're looking forward to having you back on as a guest. O'brien do please take us out of here. The Nice guys on business professional podcasters. Please do not try this at home. It may seem simple kids but lots of people get hurt in the process. Void where prohibited including Mexico.

Countdown to World Sleep Day with Podcast Three Dr. Richard Allen

"The following sleep better. Podcast is brought to you by the Sleep Forum for more information. Visit the Sleep Forum Dot Com. Hello THIS IS RUTH. Marion and I am editor at the sleep forum. We were publication reporting on sleep health and sleep medicine for everyone. I would like to welcome you to podcast number three of a special podcast series that the sleep forum is doing celebrate the upcoming World Sleep Day sponsored by World Sleep Society. I am happy to have here with me today. Alan O'Brien Executive Directorate. World Sleep Society. Hello Alan who fear? Thank you and I'm happy to have Dr Richard Alan Professor at John Hopkins University. Hello Dr Allen Bruce. I'm also glad to be here with you looking forward to thank you very much for being here I I'd like to start by asking Alan to tell us a little bit about world sleep society and World Sleep Day and then introduce our guest speaker Doctor Allen so with that. Let me hand this podcast over to Allen. O'brien thanks route in the world sleep. Society is nonprofit membership based organization and we represent sleep researchers and clinicians with programs on awareness and education from around the world and so our leadership is a volunteers with the focus. A MISSION TO ADVANCE SLEEP HEALTH WORLDWIDE. And we'd like to do this with a Annual event that we call our world. Sleep Day it's an intended a celebration of sleep. A Call to action on important items and really ask the general community to be getting involved in the importance of of sleep. And so we're here today to Talk to Dr. Richard Alan Professor Neurology Doctor. Allen has extensive research in a restless leg syndrome over three hundred up here reviewed articles undergraduate at Mit And also a has graduate studies in psychology at University of Cambridge in England. And so Dr Alan. Welcome to the show today. And it's good to be here so first off Richard. What what is a sleep disorder and specifically you know that if you have a sleep disorder the bank to two things you can tell that you have a significant seek disorder. One you find out your you don't sleep through the night or you're doing something strange in your sleep during the night either one some people get up and jump around and do really weird things Most people over sleep disorder characterized by not seeping. Well however you can also have physiological events occur during the nicer dangerous in different. We tra- longtime. We didn't appreciate that. That eight hour period of the night is a period where physiology brainwaves and the body works differently than it does when awake nonsense. It works differently. Different things happen. Area happened in waking and those things can contribute to medical problems and when that happens then you have because sleep disorder think of sleep as a different state of be in a matter of fact you have to think of it as two different states of being which makes it even more interesting because you have not been all sleep but you have the what we call rapid eye movement or Dreaming Sleep and during that time the body even is different than when it's enormously and these different functions of audie actually make for different medical problems and that's why it's a complicated health issue that is needs to be seriously considered if you WanNa know if you have asleep the best thing to ask you feel rested when you wake up in the more you feel alert and functioning during the day or do you find that you're doing something during the night that you that is undesirable our problem. If any of these things are going on then you WanNa think about talking about possibly having a disorder involving eight hours a night which has different medical and physiological psychological issues than sixteen hours a waking we defined. You know quality sleep because it's not just that eight hours of sleep because many times people will be asleep for eight hours but then they don't have that Restorative in the morning we define quality sleep as The duration of the continue -ality and the depth There's recommendations for adults that individuals have seven to nine hours of sleep each night. But can you talk a little bit about as you referred to as well as as what happens in the morning if you don't feel that restoratives or any long-term affects both Health consequences and then also also says short term you know what impacts if you don't have that quality sleep the biggest issue for poor sleep is sleepiness in the day or particularly in the late afternoon. I continue to get patients command. Who thinks it? They're sleeping fine because eight hours and bid but then we find out that restless in sleep moving and are not getting very good sleep and in the afternoon or evening drowsy. Some of them get drowsy driving home from work and other conditions. I had one patient who used to just routinely has to take a break on his drive home for ten minutes now. I'm glad he's taking a nap break rather than brisk accident but that meant he really wasn't getting adequate sleep and we needed to investigate why he didn't get to sleep. You needed and how we could improve sleep. And his health aside from sleepiness. There's also issues of medical issues of poor sleep which go range from contributing to dementia with a cognitive decline to cardiovascular health issues and heart disease heart disease so all of these things have to be taken into consideration if there's a lot of movement and sleep for example these movements are triggers for cardiac dance and therefore they need to be investigated. If you're a very restless sleeper you have to be concerned about your health as well as your alertness the next day with your research and you have over three hundred pure review publications in the field of a much of that is focused on movement disorders and restless leg syndrome. Can you let us give us a bit of background of what is recipes like syndrome? Sure this is an interesting disorder. It was first described by Willis Eighteenth centuries as bits and old disorders are well known for a while. The people generally minimized it. A people didn't appreciate the fact that there are different controls a movement that chain sleep as I said CPAS different than waking and people start kicking are moving in sleep excessively and. When they do this they are not feeling rested in the day but will make his legs interesting and complicated. Is that it strikes. Not just when you're asleep but it strikes whatever you're resting or attempting to move into sleep the sleep you need to be quiet you need inhibit movement in with this sort does is it. Starts you moving? At the time he wanted to sleep so a person with restless legs has trouble relaxing evening resting being quiet and he gives his cure feelings and he just absolutely can't just get up and move has to get out of his chair as to move his legs has to do something and this agitation this drive to be active is characteristic of it restless leg syndrome and then when they go to sleep better being quiet instill they continue to move. So it's this abnormal movement and but mainly in sation of a need to move what bothers them really disrupt sleep and south waking and how much of our less is out there. I I've heard different. Type of of percentages of four percent to seven percent of the adult population have are less. Is there a different population? That's more apt to have are less. And what percentage Do you think is has a mild to moderate to severe case of Ernest prevalence varies considerably depending on populations. You choose but overall there's probably about a seven percent Three three to seven percent of the people that have some degree of twitter about one percent. Maybe up to three percent have a bad enough that it becomes a major medical problem. Unfortunately people don't aren't aware of it. They're just restless night. The Cat Sleep. They get up and down a lot And then when they go to sleep there disturbing their bed partner sometimes and they just don't know what's happening and there is good treatment for it so this is a condition which is under diagnosed often. It's also one which people tend to minimize if they can't you just sit still everybody else can? What's wrong with you have to keep moving? We mean your restless just relax. You know. That's that's a psychological problem in fact early on in treatment. The patients got referred to psychiatrist. Or psychologist for treatment. I one loveday who got referred to psychiatrist because he had these all all these kicking movements. Dieting couldn't sit still Was bothering his partner and the psychiatrist told him that really what the trouble was still very upset with. His mother was kicking his mother his sleep at night when he went got sleepy Needless to say he was pleased to find this with an organic disorder not a psychiatric disorder and one which we do have treatments for now which are affected. We didn't have these thirty years ago. We now have well developed. So so what are the the treatments and and if somebody was diagnosed with our ls twenty years ago? What was the typical treatment? Then and now what is the treatment and For our less what twenty years ago you would have you might have been given opioids? But you're probably told us I said to to just just manage it. You know just learned to relax just into the psychological issues to deal with and many of our patients will just go. You have to live with. There's nothing we can do and now we got we have come through a really long range of treatments. We have a very good effective medications. Which your doctor can prescribe for you. which range from medications involving the dopamine system to those in Lorient opioid systems and one of the most interesting things as we found this to be related iron deficiency and so one of the most promising treatments we have now is getting iron to patients Normally think they have an all out of iron but isn't an unknowable? Enough for someone or less occur. Research actually indicates that underlying this disorder for a lot of people is is a deficiency of iron in the brain and we have to do is do something to get that iron levels up in the brain and that reduces the the drive To be active in the daytime. If people aren't efficiency they know that this bothers them in terms of making them restless disturbing asleep and very often it contributes to this restless leg syndrome and we could give iron either orally which you can get as over the counter. Although we don't recommend anybody do that without getting a blood test because there is a condition which is not common but if you start taking a lot of oral air you have this genetic condition. It can be damaging to your health particularly to your liver. So don't start taking oral arm regularly without a doctor's review but there's also intravenous iron which we give a fair number of our patients who are more severe. And then as I say very severe patients get treated with what we call. Alpha to Delta agents the fancy name for agent which deals with the good mate and other systems again fancy names but names which relate to it systems that control pain and movement particularly in the brain and spinal system and these help patients a lot So the gap. Penton like drugs are the ones that are very commonly used. And maybe given to you. If you go to your doctor is of course you always need big check for irony restless and sleep iron deficiency is is a major driving problem for restlessness poor sleep in general so people have poor sleep should always be checking on the iron levels to make sure they have high high noble levels of iron in their in their blood. We actually asked them to be particularly where what we call serum Ceratin. That's one particular measure which they can talk to their doctor about to ensure they have adequate fire. What does that range That you typically look for is a normal range of iron Still successful for our less pursue for restless legs patients. We like to see him. I really like to have ever since station. No Serum Feridan News and secondly we like to have it above fifty micrograms per liter. Even though normal guy is good twenty or seventeen but I the thanks patients. You need to be higher. So we like to see a fifty. Maybe a closer to a hundred uncertain preferably possible over seventy five micrograms per liter. And if it's below that that we do recommend they consider Treatment and certainly little fifty and possibly even one hundred depending on the patient so the big thing is if you have poor sleep and you think you may have versus. What are the things to check is iron levels and we really advocates strongly? It's something you can do at your doctor. And the treatment often for is just oral medicine of which is unpleasant but can be taken and if that doesn't work then we do have intravenous method to give you an iron so this is an important under under appreciated. Part OF RESTLESS LEGS. The bigger message. Of course there are a lot of people with this disorder. We just don't know they have it. Hey Dr Allen this is this is Ruth. I was just wondering. Do they know what? Causes Restless Legs Syndrome? Well we have two major features related to the calls versus lakes. The first is brain iron deficiency. It seems very clear that restaurants lakes patients have reduced iron in particular areas of the brain related to motor and sensory control members century disorder. You feel any strange sensations and it's a motor disorder yet strange movements. And so these parts of the brain low iron and therefore not functioning. Well the second thing is we know. They're real genetic basis for this one of the disorders. It's relatively uncommon have some real genes related to disorder and here we have very clear specifically ills of genes which increase the risk of disorder. Now we haven't reached the point that we can do a genetic test for disorder. But we do know this. Dr Genetic Basis for the disorder and part of the research emphasis is to find how the genetic basis contribute. There are some other interesting features disorder. One is it's more common in women than men but it's really only more common in women that had children women avoid that disease a pregnancy than they won't have the same risk risk man but when I go through pregnancy increased to two fold increase or aggressive legs. We think that's related to the iron issue because one of the problems of pregnancies low iron reduced iron as Eddie. Anyone will tell you. They've been through pregnancy. They know anemia struggle. You can get actually what from what I'm hearing. You say you can get get restless leg syndrome at anytime. No uniform was that you could develop any time. We think you're born with a genetic propensity for Alterations IN THE GENES. Which would wear fancy words for maybe call the quote? Epi genetic features in order for this to be expressed and with think also an issue to experience of iron deficiency may alter the jeans. And so we think there's we're looking for a commonality now between the genetic issues and the irony shoes and they were looking for ways that we might be able to identify those people most at risk so we can possibly prevent this now Is Very severe. It's really distressing to people. If it becomes the dominant thinking in their life when a severe they can't sleep through the night they get up. They move a pace. It's it's really very distressing disorder. And they're feeling remember they have a sensation that nobody else has. It's a sensory abnormality and for them to describe something. They're feeling to you when you're not you have no similar feeling is very difficult so very often people. Just don't understand how distressing these patients distress. These patients are by these feelings. Because it's very hard to communicate something that other people don't experience but it's very disturbing disorder when it happens. I can tell you. Some of our patients are are desperate ones. We are not doing so well tweeting. There are some just desperate to get some way better treatment. And we're certainly working on today. We're talking to Dr Richard. Alan Professor Neurology from Johns Hopkins University. And Richard. Just want to ask you. Wha What are you currently working on research wise and what does the future of Arles treatments? Look for look like They're probably major developments. Were looking for One is we're obviously looking for ways with we think it's very closely debris an iron concentration so we're looking for ways to do two things. One is Identify that by personal test. Which is hard because our perfect tests did not do a good job to are looking for better ways to actually get a measure of what? The brain aren't status is from blood samples and we hope we'll be able to do something like that in the future. We're also looking for ways to identify the types of experience with the would create a risk for iron and see if we can risk for sleighs. Then see if we can do something to prevent those experiences from causing one example is with think that the issue of pregnancy. If the woman gets it'll Pregnancy twenty years later she has an increased risk or less so indicates something happened during the pregnancy. And we think part of that may be the iron deficiency so we're we're emphasizing working with pregnant women to reduce the risk of iron deficiency reduced the amount of it anyway and their Bible possibly reducing the risk of developing wrestles legs can which can be quite severe in thirty or twenty or thirty years later again. We need biomarkers though the enough of the Ernest bothersome to the brain but they need me as disturbing their brain and we need to have a wave delivering iron to these these people now so we need to identify early. We need to find a better biomarker for the disease and also for the brain iron status for the for iron and we also probably need to find a better way to deliver iron to the brain Getting into the brain is not easy because it has to go through to barriers has to go through the stomach. The Gut limits the amount of our undertaking wants to send the blood from the gut into the blood. It has to go through the blood brain barrier to get to the brain so we're looking for ways to find better message to deliver iron. That will actually improve brain iron without causing problems with perform and we think we may have something on this to the next ten years maybe next couple of years for a better way to deliver are also Even oral Ariza pleasants. We'd like to replace. That was a better form of iron. If we can the doesn't cause gastric upset and so forth happens with a lot of thirty percent of the people who take Orlando. We'll also are very interested in looking at the genetics and seeing if we can find a relationship between the genetics disorder and hopefully make it some again some markers of indicating early risk for us which would indicate people that should work on doing things to prevent the development of such as made sugar earn doubles maintained. Not Everybody has to be concerned about this but we think maybe as many as twenty thirty percent of the people may carry enough risk. They should be doing something to avoid the programs that would lead to the development of ORLA later in life. It's a big big big chunk to do that but if we can do it will save a lot of sleep problems for a lot of older people. And by the way we think also improved cardiovascular health because we think these the wrestles leg syndrome is part of a problem. The brain functioning that causes arousal in sleep that contributes to cardiovascular disease in Kabul possibly dementia. So we like to have people sleep through the night with south easels and if we can do that will make healthier people in older age and even in middle age so we're looking forward to making sleep better for everybody is probably worth noting that you can do. Some things about restless legs unions addresses legs. It's okay first of all keep yarn levels high. But a siphon that you can do something about exercise reasonable good exercise. Good sleep hygiene. Make sure that you are not trying to sleep to all the right amount of time adjusting your circadian rhythm. I think you're going to have separate symposium on Circadian Rhythms. I hope you are because that's very important for restless legs patients and of course Making sure that you're sleeping a comfortable room and in a safe environment lymphocytes. All of this and probably slightly cool room is good idea. Yeah you you reference than we do have a pamphlet about ten recommendations of good sleep hygiene for both adults and for children and much of what you mentioned including a established in a regular bedtime Having a cool comfortable Place to to sleep Especially well ventilated and keep out distracting noises. But specifically even the Recommendation to have late exercise And try to avoid the white light in the bedroom That helps with the the sleeping and trying to get to sleep. We recommend that fit for his patients because if their sleep is if their environment for sleep is better. This'll contribute to them. Being able to sleep maintain sleep despite the disturbance on their disorder. And you know if you got bad sleep hygiene and you have a disorder. You're really good. Come come the problem but world sleep. They were designed to help raise awareness of sleep. And Thank you Dr Richard Alan. For a providing some insight on are less But with World Sleep Day. Were wanting to make sure that people are aware of sleep and sleep as a human privilege. That's often compromised by some habits of of modern life With our slogan this year better sleep better life. A Better Planet We thank you for for answering these questions. Both restless legs and also was sleep in general. Hey It's my pleasure looking forward to hearing the World Sleep Day.

When Depression Gets Worse on an Antidepressant

"When depression gets worse on an antidepressant it doesn't necessarily mean the patient has bipolar disorder. Will that they are sensitive to medications. Today we detail seven explanations for this paradoxical phenomena. Welcome to the car lexicon. Podcast kevin psychiatry honest since two thousand and three. I'm chrissie the in chief of the carlisle psychiatry report. And i'm kelly newsom. A psychiatric can pay a dedicated reader of every issue. This month we featured a new study on an old controversy can antidepressants caused violence. The study is the best design one. We've seen tackle this question which dates back to the early nineteen nineties. When case reports described on fluoxetine the idea it goes against the grain of practice whereas arise riser used to trade anger and aggression due to conditions like personality disorders and intermittent explosive disorder. But it reminded us of another issue. One that we see a lot more often in clinical practice can antidepressants make depression worse. This is the kind of problem that even if it's rare you're likely to encounter in psychiatric practice because the majority eighty percent of anti-depressants a prescribed in primary care the ones that get better not likely to come to outdoors but the ones who don't respond. Oh get worse will. When a patient says they feel worse on an antidepressant. The first thing to do is to rule out physical side effects like nausea fatigue and insomnia one to pay attention to is academia as patients might have difficulty describing this inner sense of restlessness which is more often associated with anti psychotics but academia can occur on antidepressants as well particularly serota. Energetic ones and agatha can cause anxiety insomnia even suicide -ality so it might be the reason that they're mood is worse on an antidepressant dot in how concert energetic antidepressants calls academia. I thought it was caused. By dopamine blockade it is thought that the inhibitory effects of serotonin have indirect effects on the dopamine system and that it can lead to dopamine antagonism there in the stratum another side effect. that's related to academia. You might see on sarah. Synergetic antidepressants is restless. Legs syndrome which is almost like academia night. If that happens you could add gabba. Penton or pramod. Pack saul both of which treat restless legs in academia and both of which have psychiatric benefits gabba. Penton helps sleep an anxiety and promo pack saul helps depression but another option would be the switch to be appropriate wellbutrin in a randomized controlled. Trial bupropion treated restless leg syndrome. Even when it was dosed in the morning perhaps through its dopaminergic effects. While we're on that subject sleep disruption is another reason that antidepressants can make people feel worse. Be appropriate often. Gets a bad rap here because it's thought to be inactivating antidepressant but it actually causes initiation insomnia at about the same rate as this arise on the other hand. The essence rise tend to lighten sleep making sleep restless while the appropriate intense to deepen sleep quality. And if you patient has mostly quality they may not complain of directly. They mentioned say that they're tired. Can't concentrate and easily frustrated and camp manage stress we thought of six antidepressants that a pretty favorable when it comes to sleep quality the first three have sedating effects. So they're good to give when the patient has trouble falling asleep tresident nefa zone and matanza pain and the other three that a relatively non-sedating bilaz atone. That's vibrant forty ox team. Turn telex and of course be appropriate will be trained. So doctor can once you've out side effects and sleep problems. What else goes through your mind when a patient tells you. They feel more depressed on an antidepressant after side effects. The most common reason is bipolar disorder for a long time psychiatrist debated whether antidepressants even caused mania. There were studies showing that it did and some showing that it didn't but in my mind the issue is pretty settled around two thousand fourteen when alexander victorian published a large study of over three thousand patients. In the american journal of psychiatry. His team focused on the first three months after starting an antidepressant and they only looked at bipolar patients. They found that when anti-depressants were taken on their own as monotherapy. The risk of manic switching was three fold elevated on the other hand if they were taken with the mood stabiliser. There didn't seem to be an increased risk. By the way lamotrigine was not counted among those mood stabilisers and it doesn't have very strong. Anti manic affects so. Does that mean it's safe to give an antidepressant as long as they are automatic stabiliser. Not exactly this was a large study but it wasn't taking a very fine grain at the symptoms. They're only counting. The most extreme events switches into full mania other studies have found problems with antidepressants in bipolar. Even when they're given with the mood stabiliser problems like mixed states and rapid cycling and in my experience. Those are the things. You're more likely to see in practice because these antidepressants really aren't powerful enough to flip someone from depression all the way to full mania. More likely what they do is they failed to treat the depression and they sprinkle manic symptoms on top of it. And that's called a mixed state now. All these things are clearly less risky when a mood stabilisers on board but then again staying up all night is also less risky with the mood stabiliser and we wouldn't advise a pearson with bipolar disorder to do that. This study's anti-depressants treat bipolar depression. There are but most of them have design flaws like small sample size enrich design or lack of a placebo arm in the well designed studies like the one from gary sachs's group that was published in the new england journal of medicine. Antidepressants did not work for bipolar depression. My take on all this is that antidepressants probably help. A minority of patients with bipolar disorder terrence koetter estimates that. It's about one in thirty and they possibly work better in bipolar to than bipolar. One have a high chance of causing harm and an even higher chance of doing nothing at all. Of course there's another chance built in there. Which is that. They're going to have a placebo effect. And that's what you're gonna see a lot of in your practice so antidepressants might look a lot more effective when you use them in practice than they actually pan out to be in the research and again what i see them causing most often is mixed states when a patient develops mixed features on an antidepressant. They are not gonna call you up and say. Hey that antidepressant you gave me is giving me mixed features instead. They're likely to just say that it's making their depression worse. They'll feel anxious wired like they're crawling out of their skin driven to do something but they don't know what to do. Agitated antidepressants in bipolar disorder can turn depression which is a passive inactive state into this fauria which is a desperate state. That craves urgent relief. That makes sense because mick states are more severe than depression. They have higher rates of suicide substance abuse and psychiatric hospitalization and that brings us to the third kind of patient who can get worse on an antidepressant. Patients with unit polar depression with mixed features. This diagnosis is new. Dsm five and you don't have to bipolar disorder to have it. It's actually quite common in yuna polar depression the largest meta analysis on this found that one in four patients with depression had at least three men features during their depression and three is the dsm five cut off from mixed features. There are at least two guidelines on how to treat depression with mixed features and they emphasize minimizing or avoiding antidepressants and using treatments for bipolar depression and mixed states. But the truth is we don't know much about how to treat these conditions. There's some evidence that antidepressants can make them worse. But on the other hand there's some evidence that people get better with antidepressants on them. It seems to depend a lot and vary a lot by patient. Most of the patients. I same practice. Who had mixed features are already taking an antidepressant. That's true in the first goal there is to figure out if that antidepressant is making things better or worse. But that's easier said than done and it's also not easy to just yank that antidepressant away that could set off withdrawal symptoms. Particularly if it's a serotonin antidepressant and those withdrawal symptoms can mimic a mix state. If it is clear that the antidepressant has made the mixed features worse. i would taper it off. But if there's any doubt at ten to leave it there particularly if the mixed features are part of a unit polar depression and not a bipolar depression. Anwar leaving the antidepressant. There i would try to treat the mixed features with something we know can work for it right now. Larizza don the tuta has the best evidence for unipol or mixed features it almost got. Fda approved for that condition and after is unknown at us any medication that's appropriate for bipolar disorder. Ideally you'd wanna use something that can treat both mania and depression like lithium or pain but if the manic symptoms are more prominent. You might use something with more. Anti manic effects like carbamazepine or valpo acid and if the depressive symptoms are more prominent. You might even go with something that treats bi polar depression but doesn't have much potential against mania. Mike lamotrigine lamictal. Once the patient starts to improve significantly. I might then try to taper off the antidepressant if there's a possibility that it was making things worse but i do that very slowly over at least three months. We covered this in january two thousand and eighteen issue which has a linked the bi-polarity index. This is validated writing scale. That uses non symptomatic markers of bipolar like age of onset treatment response and family history to assess the likelihood that a patient has bipolar disorder on one hundred point scale is particularly helpful when faced with mixed features because the symptoms are so hard to identify. They can look like anxiety. Ptsd or even adhd features are an area of diagnostic as well as treatment confusion. But we do know that regardless of whether the patient actually diagnosed with bipolar disorder or not the more markers of bipolar disorder. They have such as family history and age of onset and highly recurrent depression. The more likely it is that an antidepressant will worsen their mixed features another area where we see. This is in short duration hypo mania about one in twenty patients with recurrent. Depression have brief hype. Ameinias that a classic recurrent but nevertheless long enough to meet dsm criteria for bipolar. They last less than four days. Jules angst published a remarkable study where he showed that the chance of mood worsening on an antidepressant rises steadily with the duration of hypo mania from one percent and patients with no history of hypo mania to nine percent. If they've had it for less than a day fourteen percent for two to three days and then we get into the real bipolar levels. Four days the cutoff by politics. The risk is twenty-seven percent. And if they've ever had hyper mania for more than a week. The risk of getting worse on an antidepressant is eight percent but still. That's only thirty eight percent. It's not one hundred percent. None of this is absolute another reason that patients can get worse on. Antidepressants is borderline personality disorder. And this isn't just because there's a lot of symptoms. Overlap with bipolar borderline personality itself has been identified. As a predictor of antidepressant worsening and patients with borderline personality tend to get worse more depressed or more aggressive on tricyclic. For example there. Two studies showing this effect with emma tripped elaine on the other hand there's studies with some aligned symptoms improved on antidepressants particularly accessorize. So this is not an absolute but keep in mind though studies all had flaws enough that the evidence for ssi arise in borderline was considered too inadequate to recommend several recent reviews fifth area where you may see worsening on antidepressants is in children and young adults. The fda has placed a warning about suicidal idealization on antidepressants in people under age. Twenty five now. This is a complicated area. Because there's also some epidemiologic evidence that suicide rates have gone down in youth when anti-depressants for us. But i don't think it's too much of a stretch to acknowledge that there are different kinds of depression out there and that antidepressants might cause harm in some while. Helping others sir. How common is this problem. Well the risk of suicidality on antidepressants seems to taper off between the ages of eighteen. To twenty five which is interesting because twenty five is also the age where the brain is thought to reach full maturity than adulthood from age. Twenty five to sixty five. The risk of suicide on antidepressants stays flat. It doesn't go up or down and after age sixty five. We start to see good news. It's there that we can detect a clear preventative effect against suicide with antidepressants in the elderly. In terms of how common this is about one hundred children will develop suicide alley on antidepressant actually the rate is three percents on antidepressants and two percent on placebo. So i came up with one percent by subtraction. Now in practice you might see the plastic intrusive suicidal thoughts that are described in the fda warning but more often the suicide. -ality you're going to see is going to be part of a bigger picture of mood. Worsening that might include anxiety insomnia or even aggressive behaviors in two thousand sixteen. The cochran group published an analysis of seventy trials of ss arise and s is and they concluded that those medications doubled the risk of suicidality and christian in children but not adults and do we know anything else about which children are at risk. The risk is greater underage to and it's also greater antidepressant is raise too quickly or the dose goes too high the other risks. Bring us back to bipolarity. Children are much more likely to experience mood. Worsening which may or may not include suicidality if a close relative has bipolar disorder or the child has mixed features during their depression. So far we've covered five reasons. Why mood can get worse on an antidepressant. One side effects like academia and insomnia to bipolar disorder. Three by paula features like depression with mixed features will show duration hypo mania for borderline personality disorder. Five h less than twenty five and now for six genetics. Some research suggests that patients with the short arm of the serotonin transporter gene. The ss genotype on. Start a more likely to develop mania possibly suicidality or just more side effects on a certain urging antidepressant. This is by no means definitive but then again neither are any of the risks. We mentioned in this podcast. This is about risk factors not absolutes and seven. Some patients just more sensitive to medications overall. Maybe they have an anxiety disorder or hypochondria isis. Or maybe there is slow metabolism and can get really high levels of the med and while medications sensitivity is always a possibility. I would leave that as a diagnosis of exclusion. If you take away anything from this podcast no that there are specific diagnoses out there that can cause patients to feel worse on antidepressants patients. Who have those specific problems like bipolar borderline. Who are underage. Twenty-five might think of themselves as sensitive to medications but that doesn't explain the problem. These problems are hard to diagnose when you get that call from a patient who says the antidepressant you gave them as making them feel worse. They are unlikely to recite the dsm criteria for mania or quote the fda warning on suicide -ality even when the antidepressant is causing them to have manic symptoms are causing them to feel suicidal. Mania is more likely to present as a dysphoric anxious mixed state and patients with suicidal thoughts may not share them with us for fear of being involuntarily committed but they will share any number of symptoms anxiety restlessness destroyer that might have worsened since starting the antidepressant. So think carefully about these other possibilities before concluding that. The patient is med sensitive. That term doesn't tell us very much other than to keep trying with antidepressants with low and slower doses. And if you believe that the antidepressant is ultimately going to do good than going lower and slower and easing them into. It is the right thing to do. That is what. I was almost always taught to do when i trained in the nineteen nineties a time that david healy called the antidepressant era because we had a lot more faith in these medications back then pharmaceutical companies weren't required to release all of their data and the new antidepressants seem so much safer than the older ones. That few psychiatrists really questioned them. One of those psychiatrist. Dr fred goodwin. The former director of the national institutes of mental health. Who passed away last september twenty years ago. Fred wrote a punchy paper called the bipolar spectrum and the antidepressant of the world that was the first thing to really wake me up to the idea that antidepressants worse.

That is hard to bear. It is a profound state of unease or dissatisfaction. Dysphoric is a symptom that is not tied to any specific disorder in psychiatry. It's been used in premenstrual. Dysphoric gender is for ya and immune disorders. It is often used to describe mick states or depressive dysphoric mania the same as main areas an unsatisfied state of mind. That's why people with mania do things to excess. Nothing satisfies them so while a press patient may delay seeking help for months a week because of hopelessness and low motivation.

I know that you're not supposed to feel this stuff right away. I feeling it right away. And i always have these people who are like professionals at this like my eldest son. Joe who are like dad. You shouldn't be afield filling it like that. So did you start to panic. I started. I started going like feeling like my breath was a little bit different. You know then. I started feeling like i was wanting to clean the house and i've never cleaned the house before in my life then i ended up going to bed and i started fallen asleep in my dog started barking that they needed to go in. Go to the bathroom. I took my dogs out to go to the bathroom in ready for this. One o'clock in the morning. I took my dogs on a walk. Who the hell does that. I don't take my dogs on a walk when it's four in the afternoon let alone doing it at one o'clock in the morning he just started. I started freaking out. I don't know what the story is. And then i came back home and as soon as i came back home and i put the dogs back in their crates. Figured i'm putting them in their crates. Because i know that something bad's about to happen. Then i started like laying down in bed and started getting restless legs syndrome where my leg started popping up on this. Like i can't keep my leg straight. You go on instagram. should've been it would have been the most entertaining thing ever. But i started freaking out From from this thing to a point. That i don't know if i could ever do it ever again. You did too much I mean how much happens. Yeah but i. I honestly don't know the little bit doesn't help me and a lot of it doesn't mean in la so there's something in between a little bit and a lot. It's called the normal amount. I don't know if there is. I don't know if it will word over me. Yeah between a half a square and two and a half square. Nothing in moderation is never been something that i know.

Bedtime Poems for Weird Kids: Death Poetry Jam

"Welcome to a very very different episode of a scary home companion. To be completely transparent producer and I were debating whether or not to release this episode at all. Because Quite frankly. It's silly. It's very silly, and this is not a show that is cultivated reputation for silliness. Quite the opposite I would like to think. The. Show is currently in the midst. Dark Story. ARC that is spider webbing out through the entire series and pulling together major characters. From a dozen different story. Collectively we are all currently in the midst of. Tumultuous and upsetting time. And, so perhaps now would be the very perfect time. For the show. To get a little silly. If you're looking for the same high caliber, intense horror that you've grown accustomed to hear. You May WanNa turn back now. This, is death poetry jam? Bedtime poems. For Weird kids. Drinking whiskey in the kitchen. And telling scary stories around the fire. Music monsters and mayhem Keller's cannibals and cults. Fearful fiction and furious fact, Toll Tales and terrible truce. This! Is a scary home companion. This poem is called. The poop knife. And you have my sincerest apologies in advance. Have you ever? Ever ever. In all the days of your life gone to the toilet and found a poop knife. Do you know what this is. Do you know what I mean? Because the first time I saw one I had no idea what I'd seen. I was staying with my buddy name of Gear Mo for net. Introduce you if you haven't already met gear. Mo is a solid dude. We go way way back. Never mentioned the knife or the custom knife rack that was hanging down clip to the side of his John. Do. You know that big. humongous scary knife that Rambo always had on. That's what this looked like. No freaking kidding. Tell you the truth. It was a little forbidding. So? I did my business quickly and did not touch the blade. and. It's not that I was scared. It's not that I was afraid. I was just a little confused why there was a knife on the side of the toilet. In Guillermo. He just said. Wait. I don't want to spoil it. So I. Let it go. There was. No POYNTON fussing and to be honest, no matter in discussing because I'd once met a man who kept a gun under his pillow, so compared to that a knife in the toilet. That was pretty tranquillo. So we ate, and we drank over the next seven days, and we drank and we ate. Like a couple of Hemingway's. After a while. All the food. Just built up inside. Mostly because all the food was doubled, deep fried. We were eating mostly red meat. In a farms worth of cheese. Along with tankards of beer. In takeout rib limits from applebee's. And all that heavy food just kept getting packed in till I. Felt I was fifty pounds heavier than when I first come in. So quickly. And quietly. I slipped away to hide. I went to use the bathroom. And Hopefully get rid of this mudslide. Because it was a common any moment. The Explosion? was imminent. Grabbed extra role of T. P. to mop up the incoming excess of excrement. What happened next? Was a somewhat. Painful surprise because this was not diarrhea. It's sort of hard to verbalize and I don't mean that I can't say what it was. I meant that at the time I could not speak at all because. The thing coming out of me. Pushing out of my Hiney. was like a loaf. A fresh, bread. Brown, bulbous. Shiny. With, the size and shape and the width and the girth. It felt every inch like a natural childbirth. Bush. Finally. If finished. And I felt rather drained, not dimension, a little stretched out in strained. Soy reach back to flush. And found my next problem because this poop. which was far too big for my bottom was definitely far too big to be flushed, and I needed to act, and I was feeling very rushed. Gear was knocking on the door, saying hey, are you all right? And then he started laughing. He was well aware of my plight. I knew. What I needed. I knew what came next. I had to cut up my poop. This left me. A bit vexed because I had no experience with chopping up feces and rendering down in small little PC's. Stared at the TURDS, studying fishers, flaws and faults, looking for weakness before a began my assault. My first blow. Was Pointless. was like stabbing. A bag of wet leather must've been all that cheese holding it so tightly together. Unable to flush and unable to cut I stared. Aghast. At the former contents of my gut. Pinhole vision took over my sight knife feared. That I would lose fecal fight. I swung the huge knife. I sliced. Cut It CETERA. And yet still made no progress in dissecting this X. Greta. This. had. A ended me. There was no way to match it. And then the door eased, opens slowly in Gear Mo- handed me. A poop hatchet. Center. Bill. The following poem is about a vampire and his zoo. Miles and Zoe. I'm reading this one for you. One night we were lost out to see. It was just my little sister and me. Our boat was drifting. The map was mangled. We should never have ventured to the Devil's triangle. And then we saw an island with a dock, but the I'll was quite a fearsome looking rock. We saw on this at tall slender man. With sharp front teeth and claws for hands. Good evening and welcome, and how do you do? My name is cedrick and this is my zoo. Cedric was vampire the last of his kind. And he had gotten a bold idea in his mind to gather together all the monsters on earth. No matter their height. No matter their girth. So we found this lost island place quite remote, and he started bringing in those monsters by boat. It took one hundred years to get it just right and you. Kids have arrived on opening night. You were all so lucky to get here when you did. Your the first in line to see my collection kids. We follow the vampire up off the pier and across the beach to the forest that was in here. And before we had traveled not twenty two steps, we encountered the first of the vampires pets. It was a Taran Sore. Taller than any tree. This mighty t rex! Had A shocking deformity. This dino had fangs in teeny tiny bat wings. A Vampire Dino. Have you ever seen such a thing? Next upper. The Pete's cedric softly explained. They share one body two heads in two brains. Pete. Here is friendly and Pete. They're as mean Pete. There is dirty and Pete here stays clean. We, approached the habitat. Full of revulsion and found to Pete's filled with far more repulsion. My name is peaked, said one head neatly. Mine name is Pete, said the other more sweetly. He's the fake Pete and I'm Pete completely. No, he's the fake Pete and I'm. Much more likely. We walked away slowly and listened with care as pete fought with Pete about what to wear. Said retold us. His collection of frightening beasts had been gathered from the north the South West and east. And nowhere else where you likely to find creatures so scary, they might render you blind. Wait. What's that? WHO's that? CAN IT BE? Real, live mermaids winning in the sea. Just off the beach by the end of a river with something so weird that it gave me a shiver. This mermaid swam back and forth in a loop. Leaving Shimmering wake with each swoop. She had long red hair and a tale of bright green. And the longest sharpest front teeth that I'd ever seen. Could something so wonderful be so very bleak? This beautiful mermaid was also a blood sucking freak. She swam to the surface and blue. Cedric a kiss. He said Oh. How sweet of you I love you miss. Cedric told us they had been married about a year. She was the reason that her boat had come here. Princess Blood Ula supports me with pride. She wants the Zoo to succeed my blushes young bride. With a flash of her tail and a blood curdling Shriek. The princess dove down in swam back to the deep. This is my garden, Cedric, what do you think? Look rather pretty, but Oh midas it stink. Giant flowers with roots for feet and blossoming clause. Climbed out of the ground opened their floral jaws. These are my favorites. The Venus man traps. They, usually subsist on the dinosaurs scraps, but they haven't been fed in over a week, so let's keep moving. Before they see us as meet. Next we saw pit full of ghouls, ripping and tearing the walls like fools. One of them had green skin empty. Brown is. She Claude at us, wanting to eat brains as her prize. More and more monsters filled in behind them each craving bite of a juicy young brain stem. We all got a little nervous and decided to leave, although the next monster proved to be no reprieve. These worms are aliens as far as I know. I don't know where they came from or. Where they will go. I have no idea what planet as like, but they seem to very much like hiding out in these pipes. We looked through the bars and saw something Grimm. A hundred losing worm things crawling out. And back in. They drip down from a faucet in crawled up through a drain. Each worm had a face. But none seemingly had a brain. They slid in and out like hideous snails, and the only thing they ever eight was their own tales. then. We ran into a web as thick as my arm. Oh that spider Zillah don't worry. He means you know harm. Although! He looks rather frightening. It's true this monster likes to eat bugs, not you. The giant newsletter spider thing looked at twice and gave us a smile that seemed far from Nice. Cedric cat moving. At a heightened pace! Let's go before he changes his mind and decides to see how we taste. I want you to try imagine our surprise when we saw and. Louis gooey creature covered entirely is. It walked on tendrils. Slippery with ocular. WHO's. In brandished a spiked tail threatened to use. It's the most ghastly awful dangerous thing in the Biz. It's so old in so ugly. I can't even tell what it is. It looked like a monstrous angel that much I can say. I was told that she eight three bags of cockroaches each day. Cedric said. Don't get close to this last grumpy Gus. He will suck out your brains without much of a fuss. Don't worries actually not as bad as he looks. because he will only ever eat brains after they've been cooked, and since he can't cook, he never eats brains. But. He keeps trying to get them all the same. Finally, we had reached the end this terrible zoo. Now Cedric didn't know quite what to do. Where are all the people? Where can they be? Isn't my zoo something that everyone should see? I said you can't just sit there and expect people to come. You have to get the word out and tell them. Your Zoo is such fun. I don't know how to do that cedric. Said with a yell I'm good at keeping monsters, but I don't know how to sell. I said to him. Why don't you let us help you promote? All you have to do is get us back home by boat. As long as princess blood ULA doesn't eat US tonight. When we get back to land, we can start a website and flyers and pamphlets and radio ADS. We can tell all the moms we can tell all the dads we can sing out. Your praises both near and far and let everyone know what a wonderful zookeeper you are! I'm sure with that. The people be here in droves. But first they have to know where it is. Don't you suppose? Cedric? The vampire scratched his thin chin. He was thinking and thinking. Lost deep within. When finally he nodded, and gave us a grin and said I. Think a long friendship is about to begin. And so he gave us each a hug. and steered clear of our necks. Blood Ula. Keep their boat free of all racks. Make sure these deer kids make it to shore, so they can send us new customers more more and more. As the mermaid pushed us away from the sand. We saw cedric waving goodbye with his long clawed hand. Audio Children I. Hope You had fun. please. Come back and see me. My monsters. Each and every one. In the episode bedtime stories for weird adults. I told you about Gus. And how he fell off the roof. Following stories about. His son Gus Junior. It's cold. Side effects may include. Gus Junior was born too hard luck of that. There is no doubt. Is Very first memory was. Of watching his father bleed out. Senior had bad luck, bad temper and had met a bad fate. Gus. Junior followed suit and had been put on pills before he was. Is. Doctor was rather over zealous with the Rx in started him off on dioxin. Dan Ritalin and par lacks. Pills. Helped out some. They made them less sad. He slept a little better. Everything else went bad. Each pill came with a warning. Side effects may include. In with remarkable rapidity, those side effects accrued. Dizziness and fever toxic Kelsey MIA diarrhea. So intense, it was like anal blaming. Rashes dry mouth skull, pounding Migraines, shortness of breath and. So, many new joint pains. And Restless Legs Syndrome and asthma and Croup and others, but those were the worst of the group. Each time a new symptom took the wind from his sails Goss. Junior would be given a new pill to balance out those scales. So we had one pill for prior prism and one for impotence, Ya, one pill for constipation, one for incontinence, one pill for dry mouth and one for excess drooling. There was even a pill to stop seizures. No fooling. Took Contra lift dion for the wild mood, swings and fence luxy on for the angst. That the other pill brings. Balart Fan was issued. Tell with the sleeping. TACONA DRAN was taken. Keep him from weeping. Mars grenadine helped gus focus song and now sees. Web No drexel mean helped gusts. Treat his our. Every pill had another that balanced it out like how team is still had ten talks to out. So! Gus Junior. Wasn't happy. This comes as no surprise. He felt trapped. By all the pills, the shots drops in his eyes. He saw nothing in his future, but a grim life of fear, and so when he was a teenager. He made his plan very clear. On the day that he became a man. Date of birth. Gus Junior was going to quit all of his meds. And face what might be? Hell on earth. He wasn't suicidal. Thanks to all those pills. He had no thirst for dying. No hunger for kills no. All Gust Junior wanted. One day with no meds. Although. He knew that stopping so suddenly might just leave Him Dad. That was a risk. He was willing to take a sacrifice. He was more than ready to make. The morning. Of Truth came. Pill bottles were empty and bare. He made himself alight breakfast and he watched the sunrise from the stair. That dawn seemed. Perfect. Elegant Finally born. So, we decided to take a a barefoot walk in the grass to enjoy the more. Everything went well or It seemed to at first. That he felt. A rumble in his tummy. And it quickly grew worse. And then. On the sidewalk. On the corner. In full view traffic. Something happened. and. I'm afraid to say. It is. Quite graphic. Side Effects Never before shifted the paradigm, because the balance of pills had kept everything in line individually the effects. Were victimless crime. Until this morning. When they hit gus all. At one time. Are you ready? I don't know that I'm ready. I! Gus Pete from his, but then he pooped from his Wehner, and they weren't thick poops. He would have liked them to be much leaner. And his P. wasn't yellow nor brown. It was blue. If. If. You have blue P. What would you do? Well. Gus puked up all the contacts of his belly to eggs. Three Strips of Bacon right toast with Plum Jelly. He vomited so massively I. Mean it was? Tons? which is how he aspirated vomit back into his lungs. At that point at least he thought the worst was behind him, but he got walked jaw and his teeth storage grinding. From his. Aching joints, he felt ping 's POPs and taps. Effects Main. Spontaneous skeletal collapse. And then as a rash came back. Oh, boy, did it ever but scratching at it proved to be an incredible error because all ten fingernails just. Popped off like tiddlywinks and actually wasn't near painful as you might think because gus had no time to feel pain. Too much else had broke. With seizures, then convulsions topped off with a stroke. There was total renal failure in tremors. Pop Lactic that tore up his innards. It was brutal. It was hectic. Side effects may include. Tearing your guts your stomach lining your perennial. And even your butts. And that's not to mention the onset of genital rot. would. You like me to describe it. No. I think not. With all of the. Internal damage poor gossip taken. His belly. Was Lichen and trail Martini both stirred and shaken. Gus collapsed on the sidewalks played out on the street. His body was all twisted up. His head curled up tween his feet as if that wasn't bad enough. What happened subsequent? Wasn't. Utterly Unforgettable early. Heinous and morbid event. All glasses guts. Turned into. Liquidity Chunks. Gallons and gallons of junk that needed out of his trunk. And then because of the aforementioned damage perennial, there was really nothing left to keep it all up inside of him. What was inside came outside? At a torrential pace. In, poured out flooding all over gusts face. After all the horrors that gus worked around. It wasn't the sickness that killed him. Nor the pills.

Durable all right so Lindsey Graham just yesterday since a letter our to secretary of state. Mike pompeo requesting call summaries or transcripts between Joe Biden and Former Ukraine president port. Shinko Graham tweeted out out He said today. I sent a letter to secretary. Mike Pompeo related to requesting documents related to all of these things he also included Hunter Biden in there and he said any other. The Obama administration officials Stu Do you think that this is going to finally be the domino falling that sets this domino effect fact of US actually talking about the real facts and things that are taking place in Ukraine between Joe Biden and Hunter Biden or meat. It's possible I guess I'm not overly optimistic. Nick That they're going to really look into this. I don't know every bit of history Just other than that though. Nothing Looking at this you you see this sort of evidence that's come out. I mean you know. We're talking about this a little bit on radio earlier. Today there was a One of the claims that this is a big conspiracy theory. Is that One of the investigators over there said that he got a list of do not prosecute In the names of that you should not prosecute in Ukraine and then the guy who said that No actually withdrew that claim all right. Well that sounds like a pretty good argument. Right probably didn't happen. Well when you're actually read what he said. First of all he says. Well no I didn't. I didn't give me a list. I just wrote the list down which is Kinda the same thing to me like. It's really not about like who wrote the piece of paper really more about but the other thing is we have a letter from George Kent One of the guys who testified this week That is from him to To people in Ukraine saying a list of people you shouldn't prosecute prosecutors were very disappointed that this is not the way. We're supposed to be doing things and you know so. It's another person who tests that testified this week instead of the one that was initially named. Is this your your big defense that this is not a conspiracy theory And I think that's it like you know I don't know if we'll ever get to the bottom of this but any effort to get this passed the idea that is can be dismissed as just blatant conspiracy theory. I think is good. And when you look at the Senate Hearings that will eventually come up after they surely will Impeach the president. I think in there is the chance for Republicans. Get to make their case and they get to bring these things up and you know if there's something there which certainly looks like there is a lot of documents supporting it. There's something there that can be part of this conversation. I think it should be because if you just look at one side of this. You're not you're not going to get the full picture. And the American people I think generally speaking I'm kind of come down to their teams like you know. Even people like Eric was awful. But that is what it is like jerseys right. Yeah Yeah not supposed to be the more information we have the. Hopefully there's a chance that people look at things and choose the right side which would of course be the Philadelphia Eagles now. Okay okay. You're done you're done here Pat You haven't been on the program at all this week. What what's your takeaway from all of these impeachment hearings? And how what Lindsey Graham is doing saying might play into it. I wish somebody would Lindsey Graham a link to the plays or Min Youtube where you can get it for free and you can watch all three hours of the well. It's actually all three specials but about what six or seven hours will ever be withheld to one and say hello and less than So Oh i. There is so much information in those three specials that I can't for the life of me understand why they haven't picked up on it and run with any of it if you don't believe US look at the documents for yourself. Do some investigating for yourself. All the late works already. been done for you. It's right right. They're just enjoy it and did you see that. He was trending on twitter last night. Because there was a graphic that showed George George Soros with puppet strings and they were like Glenn Beck the anti-semites law. Yeah but that's just the perfect example of how George Soros represents all all killed how Jews are somehow synonymous. There's US anonymous to everything. Every single graphic of any sort of puppeteer has to be antisemitic. It's the most bizarre Dr Thing I've ever heard and yet media matters man. I love that argument to is like first of all Glenn won the defender is really ooh from brought up. Last night I was like Oh man you know. All those anti-semites winning defender of Israel award presented to him by Benjamin Netanyahu who maybe Komo another corrupt person. You might not like the guy but he's certainly not an anti Semite and then You know it's so funny because there's this thing and this goes to every Identifying characteristic right if you criticise a Hispanic person you hate Hispanics. He's a woman. Then you hate women if you look at the squad Ilana Maher are. You can't criticize right exactly. It's for some reason. The left expects to that that in every group gets complete immunity. You can't create. Oh you can't criticize a person within this group straight unless you go of course if you're going after conservatives because what's the thing about George Soros I if if you're gonNA make it into a thing like we absolutely have to have the right to be critical of one of the largest democratic donors in the world. This is an obvious thing that a conservative might not like his his policies may not like the way he's using his influence. Of course we have to talk about that. We're not supposed to talk about it. Because he's Jewish like who. We talked about source for months before I even knew he was Jewish. It's not even part of the picture. The reason I knew about it. Because they started saying we are anti-semites. Just like wow the hell I didn't know but beyond that like let's go really Lazy Anti Semite and glad is the worst anti-semite of all time because he's terrible at it. He won the defender of Israel award but but not only to do when the defender of Israel award he won the defender of Israel award that is also named after Sheldon Adelson. Now Allison is one of the biggest Republican donors who is Jewish and is criticized all the time by the left. So it's completely okay for them to do it because they get immunity from all these. He's terrible accusations it's lazy. It's it's not. It's not something a serious person could possibly believe yet here. It is and you know it'll trend on twitter because you know there's that is the level of intellect it's a lot less than one hundred and forty two characters or two hundred eighty or whatever the hell it is now it is it's about two characters And you know it's media matters so they they do what they do. But it's pathetic that people still keep buying this CRA. Yeah once again media matters we welcome you to watch the Democrats Hydra. It is as PAT said available available on Youtube for free. You know if you WANNA run your mouth maybe you should go ahead and know what you're talking about Eric what is your. What's your impression of just the the impeachment hearings? How they've gone this week? Do you think anything's GonNa come looking just exhausting because obviously dominates pretty much every single headline so I think a lot of stuff that happens happens even at the state and local level just kind of gets buried Because this is what we're discussing this is the most important thing that's Pit Line and no matter what news major minor doesn't matter everybody's talking about impeachment but to piggyback off. What's Doucet it's good? That will hopefully regardless out of all of this is that we get information that's out there doesn't matter who the people that are presenting it they actually care who making Throw under the bus. If you will will be presenting this information but at least from the Joe Blow individual that just wants to analyze it hopefully with all of this stuff coming out we can just see. See what's going on instead of it being presented like it is now by one side dealing with Ukraine. Can we somehow make trump the bad guy here. That's what's what's being presented and as always I think anytime you're dealing with the federal government it's usually is not as dumb as a rabbit hole. You go down and you'd be surprised who who's going to have have to get caught in the cross fire if if that's the rabbit hole that you choose to go down and quite often it may not. It may not even working their favorite because by bringing this up. Maybe it exposes guys that are on their team. And that's what I've been looking at it from from that standpoint. I'm actually hoping that's the case because that'll give me some some way it'd be like Who I've been trying to tell you you know it goes down on? It's not just one side when it comes to this when it comes to being corrupt and in federal government. So that's what I hope I mean that's being terribly optimistic about it all but I just hope that the information gets out there. I really honestly don't expect People ought to just be like okay. Well wait a minute. Somebody else was involved in this as well. That may be part of the party that I'm that I support I really don't expect they'll even acknowledge allege that but at the very least hopefully people will see that it's something that's going going down on multiple different angles of this and we can all look at this and be like Whoa This may be a little silly. You know what I mean not even just stab but how much power put it in the presidency Influence who put it in the presidency. Just altogether PAT. Do you think that we are to tribal. Are we too far gone. But even if all of this Ukraine stuff actually came out the mainstream media covered it correctly we had no evidence that there was corruption in Ukraine linked to Joe Biden and Hunter Biden. All of these things that Glenna on a saying is true it comes out and mainstream media. Are we too far gone. Are we to tribal to care. Feels like it. Yeah it was like to me but beyond that the information could get out there and a better way I I think the trump administration has played this terribly. It really badly. I mean the. He called into Fox News this morning with rotten talk for half an hour forty five minutes something like that and was still hammering on things that have it kinda been discredited. He did try to call in on on my show but we were plan more on Trivia. We told him to call back next hour so to speak with him. And I just sit straight but I I. It's hard to understand for me the attack the White House is taking and I you know there. There are certain things that would have put an end to this. I think a while ago. And that's that Yeah I. I told them that we're going to delay the the aid to them until the investigate corruption which was coming from America in the national interest. If he would've played that attack the from from the beginning. I I don't know if we'd even be here now. But he is at least saying that he wants a trial in the Senate which I think there should be at this point. McConnell's office say confirmed that they're not going to do a quick vote on like just dismissing it. SAYING WE'RE GONNA go ahead and look. There should be a trial i. I don't want to establish a precedent that they don't the Senate can just blow it off if if the House impeaches and Republicans will control it this time and they'll control. They'll have a chance to get their information out. You know we'll help. Yeah I I think so. And their approach has been. I would totally agree with you. I think there has been a disaster In a largely because they you know trump has existed his entire our life with one very consistent pattern going back to his days as a real estate guy in the eighty s which is to say everything that you have is the greatest thing of all time and never move off of that position one inch. I'm so when you say you're having call phone call. We're talking about moving tactics to say it's not like you're admitting you did anything wrong but you have to be able to put it into perspective that the American people can understand. I think anybody can look at this. The men's about to impeach the phone call was not perfect. Thinking was it. I mean yes. It's a partisan partisan activity and agreed and I don't I don't think he should be impeached over it. We've we've talked about that a lot but that being said like if you can't move off of that your call was perfect. How are you GonNa make nuanced argument about whether quid pro quo is a beneficial thing and foreign policy? Like that's not what he is and I think the people around him to make that that argument and he's just like I my policy is I don't give an inch. This has been a policy that has happened for fifty years and what it has done that has made him president of the United States. So I can't imagine he's going to change it now but in this sort of situation I think it does hurt him the beyond that without a without a really a clear thing. Donald Trump on the phone saying look. I don't care the money's going to be withheld on less. I mean you're going to need something to that level because People are going to have their mind changed. They're just not going to have their mind change. Unless it's super super clear you see occasionally like when you know some Republicans turned on Roy Moore because they were like you they might have been touching little kids like the need to be pretty big thing For people to kind of change their minds in this sort of environment and as much as I think what Glen has been really important and it's informed informed a lot of people a seven hours of special is there's just not enough of attention span for people unless they're really thirsty for knowledge which to find that stuff in a lot of people aren't and it's complicated right and they stopped if it's not told to them in ninety seconds they've listening all right An FBI agent reportedly quarterly being investigated for allegedly altering document in the trump campaign aide. Probe when we come back if I never hear the Tom Brokaw before we get back into it. I want to thank our sponsor real estate agents. I TRUST DOT com. If you're looking to buy or sell your the house especially if you are maybe you have a job. That's relocating you. To a completely new state.

I trust DOT COM so Apparently now gentlemen brace yourselves. CNN actually reported this which you know. It's bad it's really bad news when CNN is actually reporting on this an FBI agent is reportedly being investigated for altering a document Possibly in the probe of the trump campaign aides according the report Inspector General turned over evidence of the altar document to federal prosecutor. John Durham who is of course doing an investigation in this now. The off the document this is what we know. The document was altered in a quote substantive manner but it is unclear whether it would have changed the origin of the FIFA probe and details of this altered. Allegedly altered document are going to be included in this report that we're supposed to see At the beginning of next month at the beginning of December now of course for CNN's Spin was well this. This report is obviously going to help fuel claims from the allies of the president. Okay on some this one. They always do Republicans pounds. That's what they do. I mean it probably should shed right now at this particular moment shows shots like really superheroes respected by both sides he's a relatively unimpeachable source So that'll it'll be interesting. I mean I think that one of the things that ah the defense of Trump and Republicans will be is to say well like maybe he didn't like what the president did over here but look at all the stuff that was going on over here. Everything's kind thirty here so you've been as well pick the person who's policy like more. Look the economy is that's a that's A. That's a strain of argument that I can actually sell to the American people. And it's probably a halfway decent strategy separate from what you know right and wrong. Just like strategic strategically is a pretty good idea. Right show the the the the other side has a lot of these same problems problems which is completely true. And it's I would argue much worse on that side much of the time And this this whole thing comes down to the foundation of all of these problems and Eric you brought it up. It's like there is an if we could get to a place where we understood what the role of government was supposed to be in our lives which was almost nothing nothing right then. These things don't make a difference. There's corruption while who cares. There's not enough money that it makes a difference in our allies instead. We were constantly instantly surrounded by the sort of aura of politicians and personalities in Washington and it not only screws up our government but it screws up all of our lives. He's not supposed to be dominating our lives and so often it does now. Yeah Eric it would. It would show what you were saying. Earlier's though sides are doing absolutely and corruption from the FBI who would have thought But no like seriously. That's to me is why the angle that I've been taking with a lot of this. That's been going on is for people to realize how powerful these You know these agencies whatever. ABC doesn't matter how powerful these agency are intrusive. They are and how more so they can be. Abused used to get whatever in game that it is that they push for It's true that yes it. Ideally government would be a small to to the point to you. Don't even notice that it's there but that's not the case and this is the one positive thing that I could say Descendant Information Age with social media as much. which is I hate it? Sometimes that information does spread very fast a lot faster than what it ever has so. I'm hoping that again being optimistic. Is that people start to wake up up and see that you know what's going on and instead of trying to get. Let's say their guy to control whatever position that it is or or being whatever position of power that it is we get rid of it because people should after these two I would think if anything out of these two recent presidencies people would see like okay. Okay because a lot of people were warning people The whole Obama situation you keep giving these guys more power once. The team switches is going to be. I used against you. And that's the angle that I've been taking and that's the angle that I hope. People start to approach it as a lot of these different stories. Not just come out. They're able to spread everybody's Hit glued to the TV. Their phones their laptops computers. And what have they can see this stuff and they can see that. These things are taking police in so many different different mediums. Whatever they choose to consume so I hope people realize this is not just coming from one side? It's coming from several different angles. Several several several different sides. And this is what happens. The danger of having these major you know a very powerful agents password couple this with the With the Struck and Stews wife Lucy. And you see that this this kind of stuff has been brewing on the other side against trump for a long time and so maybe they'll be enough of this information and evidence to come out. The people finally only start paying attention to it all right. Well we will see back in a minute. Lisa page Hey before we go.

Enjoy bonus overtime content from the news and why it matters available exclusively for podcast listeners and blaze TV subscribers not a subscriber Eber Start Your free trial at blaze TV DOT COM as we mentioned on a previous show Joe Biden. It's been a really hard week. For Joe Biden. He had the democratic debate On the same it was the same day. Hey wasn't it that he found out that he was going to be grandfather. Rosa grandfather already for a new baby from Hunter Biden and and some random chicken Arkansas and he was kind of saying wasn't as kid and they got a DNA tests in a in a with the courts was and then I read it was he. He conceived this child at the same time that he was dating. His brother has broken brother's widow and then he dumped a bullseye old married some model from that he had known for a week. Yeah I mean he's still married to her. Yeah so far I think so. I wonder how she's taking the news about the new. Hey baby he's had a troubled past not surprised if she'd kind of factored some of the stuff in you know and she's got all that breath my money. So I'm sure that helps offending million dollars went to Went to his company Through a bailout process. So it's your money. Thank you for the two hundred and friends. I mean that was that was this week. Biden's Debate performance was this week. I mean it was a rough week for Joe Debate. Wasn't he terro. I loved when he said You have to do two things when you become president you have to defeat Donald Trump and I'm like aren't you doing that if you're president already something you've got to do it again. Are we changing the system. You've got to beat them twice. So so Joe Biden was asked by a reporter about his newly Found out about grandchild over there in Arkansas and and he was very clearly not expecting the question to come from A reporter let's watch. What Joe Biden say wondering wondering if you have a comment on this recording for fouling out of Arkansas that your son Hunter made you of France? No that's a private matter. I've no come. They do this with a big smile. Oh I and what do we know what. The reporter was It says here. It was Peter Doocy Fox News Fox News then it makes a pretty bold though to make that kind of snarky remark at a reporter for. I thought it was a fair question. You don't think it's trump EXA- that's why I'm saying as a woman wouldn't he wouldn't wouldn't asked trump about it. Yes that's why in today's media in Twenty Nineteen nineteen all of the questions that they ask everyone else that not a fair question to ask Democrat but since the double standard we feel like that's why he was so so like shocked. But you know if those Donald Junior or Eric who had a love child in Arkansas where Jason Momoa Wait Arkansas tonight. Ah Sorry to interrupt. You would be asking. They'd be asking about trump's kids for sure. And and whether or not he was proud to be a grandfather to an illegitimate lovechild. Do I mean they have no shame when it comes to Republicans and then they act like. It's it's absurd that you ask Joe Biden that question. Classy the profile file He goes I think it was in the Atlantic of Joe Biden came out yesterday. I thought I have not gotten a chance to read it yet. I did it was it was pretty interesting. So you know. The whole issue of Biden raced going through the debates. He just such a bad job. What's the problem? We can't get through sentences you seem kinda like journalists like himself to three sentences. Well I mean you you know it feels so much like an excuse But now they've come out and done extensive profile and basically said that he's he's a stutterer and he's having issues with that he was et Cetera. When he was a kid was able to overcome it like he was legitimately a big problem for him as a kid? Apparently I don't I don't remember this. Part of bio apparently was passed. It was able to go this whole time in like it's starting to affect him again and obviously what the campaign is doing here is like you got excuse this as a medical thing. But he's totally fine which is probably a good approach because it's a big part in a moment in the campaign. The campaign is finally admitted. Joe's never coming around. This is this is never. He's never going to you. Know it wasn't tate who was rusty we talked about. This is after all all of a sudden going to get good. He's this way he is and we need to come up with a way to explain this. The people and what they did is they actually had the reporter who is also a guy. A guy who stutters has that same issue but much worse than by and they talked about and it it was I will say kind of an endearing story in some ways like you know. This guy overcame this stuff. And he's having problems with it and he doesn't want to admit it he's kind of old school he doesn't WanNa say he can't get past it but in reality this is what he's dealing with on the other. Hand the cynical part of me it feels like a campaign tactic. Just get past this sort of elderly moment. He keeps having well if you look at all of his gaffes. They're not all just stuttering moments right like he wanted the record player comment. That was not a stutter. That was just R- breezy weird comment. I know you have a defensive about but the on Joe Biden apologized saying the gun. But what about the the poor kids are just as smart as white kids. was You know Indian people are allowed to own seven elevens and all the things. Go back clean articulate black person the I the motto Racial Weirdness going on that goes back. Yeah man like I'm Ro is the that as an excuse. I mean that they don't want to have to admit that sometimes as you get older you don't have it all upstairs. I'm not sure I think that's okay to be like. Yeah that's the thing that happens now. Maybe we don't WanNa make this guy president if that's the case but that's just a reality. You know what I mean like. That's not the he's not immune from that. I mean I'm pretty sure all of our grandparents and all within the head deal with the same situation you know what I mean. It happened so I would much rather them. Just come amount. Say That but there's no way they're going to do that because that will completely derail everything so they have to make. It seem like well. He's he's okay just somehow he's re I didn't know that was the thing and I'm not in school or anything like that so I can't confirm if that happens where you somehow overcame something like that and then you got back when you order. That's a really good point. I mean I love my dad dearly. I wouldn't have voted for him. When he was seventy seven would not have he was not in top condition mentally to to be president of the United States at seventy seven years old and I don't think Joe Biden is either and I think Democrats are starting to become hip to that and I think he's losing support because because if it's not an age thing either because you look at the difference between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders Right? I mean he had a heart attack a couple of months ago and he's lay sharper than Joe Biden. But yet you see the media and the left anytime. Donald trump breathe the wrong way. They're like he is clearly not fit. He's not mentally fit to be president president and I'm like a senior guy over here. Put up a both trump and warriner both right around the same age. It's too I mean this is not like this is not a field. That's filled with a spry. SPRY you've youth. This is this is an old for Buddha. Judge why he's rocketed to the top and the states and on the point Their their argument for this. And it's it's interesting because the guy is a stutter. Who's doing the interview? So he's like basically giving credibility to all of these points. This happens to me but he said that one of the things that happens It's not just stuttering. You know the senators coming so when you know the senators coming what you do is try to change the way. You're phrasing it so you don't get the center. And so that's why they're trying explain why he keeps wording things really strangely or he forgets like names. It's not an yeah. It really was a fascinating look at that world but they do say in the article. I'm almost positive ositive. This is about two thirds of the way through that it doesn't. It's not known to come back to adults like once you get rid of it when you're young it doesn't just come back when you're seventy because you're old now. They're saying they were still tying it together. And maybe it's like a a light version or something related but they that's the medical facts of its starts. Centering when you're young and you start sitting here in your and even even then let's say that. That was the case. If I were a voter that still would concern me like okay. Well if that's that's coming back all of a sudden well what else is he going to have. That comes up. I think we could look at this and say like let's just say it's purely all. It was like John. Docile had a centering issue right. That's right and sure. He cured it with his eminem lyrics. Thank you but again like at sure is obviously very capable. Oh now of Speaking incredibly well like the guy you know. He's he is the bad. I know you love him. John you're on me for biting. Your cheering apologised But the point is like this is. You're not running for president. Well yeah the number one and number two is like this you could say let's just say he had a restless legs syndrome. Okay all right so he could be president having restless legs syndrome. That's not gonNA really affected by stuttering. Might mean he says the wrong thing to a foreign leader might mean that he starts nuclear war by saying yeah. We're we've launched instead. We haven't launched exaggerating that is communicating as the president is a really important thing they used to beat on Bush all the time and like like as much as it's front. It was frustrating as a Republican to trade to a conservative to try. They like. Oh welcome on. It's not that big of a deal at some level. It is a big part of the deal because you're not able to convince people of stuff you're not able to make the best case. You're not communicating to foreign leaders. Well there's a lot with I I mean let's say that now this is why I watched weird about trump. You know what I mean. Some of the things that he. He's seeing some of the things that he says. You know what I mean and so I would think that would still be something something that they would worry about. I would but they of course you know they'll shift the post in a minute but yes with with trump we. We're seeing we're seeing it. Oh said all the time I wish they say there's no way that the president should be saying things like that are talking like that and things of that nature. I don't wear Tweeden. Kick him out of office exactly. So they'll make excuses for him just like they're doing now maybe even used to feel sorrowful. Yeah all right. Let's hit a couple quick just cravings in the news yeah Let's see one of the Jeffrey Free Obscene Prison Guards. Because he all know. I love me some conspiracy theories about Jeffrey up soon. is apparently going to cooperate with prosecutors and divulge details about the night Epstein reportedly killed himself reportedly killed himself so this was of course one of the guards that was arrested for falsifying records and apparently her legal team said she is considering a plea deal in which she will offer up information on the circumstances surrounding epsteins. We're going to hear that. She pantsuit the little station there. Yeah Oh yeah. Oh she had have twenty four hour might be oh. She committed suicide. Would Noel Noel. I mean Godspeed girl like you better have have some twenty four seven security trouble. I mean you know. They're in serious trouble because they were supposed to check. Every fifteen minutes didn't check at all. They blew who knows how they he had done. Nothing happened I mean yeah they did actually say that you know how they can saying some of the cameras outside the room to would not show inside the room. Apparently there were cameras. I think that that were in the general area and they have no one coming or going from this area the entire night so like it does that part of it does seem to support and again. They've they've found no evidence whatsoever that disagrees with the coroner's report. That being said that's a terribly unfunny way to the story. So let's I three broken bones in the neck which is more indicative report on that but the medical examiner example did the coroner the renowned medical examiner also related to the steenkamp right. It was actually the person that was hired by Epstein minor details himself. We all know it. let's see an N. Y.. T. Style critic Riddick New York Times style critic has something really really big to let everyone know Tulsi Gabbard Tulsi. Gabbard is a a little bit cultish so she is now a leader because she's wearing the white suit. The style writer Vanessa. Friedman says Gabbard is quote using her white suits to tap into another tradition late in the public memory. The Mythical White Knight writing in to save us all from yet another regime change war and and that the suits call to mind the white of avenging angels and Flaming Sword of somewhat combative righteousness and the white robes worn by quote cult leaders. Here's what she gets no examples no example. It's none whatsoever. Press WanNA WANNA like you've come up with something that creative year one. We're all about them. You know what I mean. He had heavens chimney together this contest contest of who can be the most woke and the most dot net is. I don't even understand that this is your story now. Like you've been on the top of her getting to where different color I mean. Do you feel vindicated by this. I'm actually pissed now. I support the white. I have to be on board with the food is. There's no way we could let this stand Tulsi. I changed my mind where the white suit every single time just to stick it to them. But seriously I don't understand. UNLASH keeps wearing white leader and she does flake. Okay you got compliments on it the first time you did it but it doesn't doesn't mean you wear the same thing every time it's like the female version of Beto Of course I don't think he ever got compliments on his Bush just saying so far gate was something that we have been very very closely covering here on the news and why it matters because obviously it matters okay But just to end on something fun. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was kind of poking fun at Eric's wall. Well for his game moment. He posted a picture on his instagram. I'm from you know they were doing interviews on the hill and there was a picture of for those of you podcast listeners. Eric's wall in front of the cameras and Kevin McCarthy standing behind him Kevin McCarthy said the last place you want to stand while giving an interview is behind representative as long as you know the real information we need some some hearings for that. They got impeachment hearings all week. We need to hear that was him. Was it swallow me. Maybe man wanted me better out the Nan- it's hard to argue with better out come on. CNN's excuse excuse was it was a get off. No no clearly. What's not clearly not? I want a constitutional amendment about better out than yes. Oh all right the Well that's it for. Oh Okay I don't have these on my card so yesterday's poll Willoughby's impeachment hearings change anyone's mind on whether or not trump should be impeached reached.

I Am the Alpha & Omega

"In Revelation Chapter Twenty one since last year we've been journeying through. The Gospel of John and our entire intense throughout this journey has been simply to find the true nature and character of the Lord. Jesus and in doing so to find life. This is John's expressed purpose for writing all throughout his Gospel. We've spent twenty-one Messages Digging into his Gospel the way that he wanted us to and in doing so he wants us to find life. The theme Verse of His Gospel. Is that? He's written these things so that we may believe that. Jesus is the Christ the son of God and by believing we may have life in his name. You and I. We crave life. We crave abundant life here this morning. And so we don't play games here in our kids do sometimes our youth do but like when we get this time we don't play games. We set ourselves in the foundation. Of God's truth talk about life like it really is. We don't we don't want to hide anything we don't want to. We don't want to act as if is if there's a there's a reality waiting for us outside the four walls of this church campus. That is anything different than what it really is. Because that's what God calls us to do and worship He. He calls us to call us to coming gloss over everything and act. Like everything's okay. He calls us to come. Honestly to come expectantly to come with the realities of this world and the ways that it's broken us this past week and maybe it's overwhelming you for the week to come and just to find your identity as you worship the creator as you worship the king and that's what we do in here and as we come to this time where we gather around. God's word are longing to hear from him and find life and as the Final Gospel Account that was written in the New Testament John Catalogs. Many of these life giving things weren't found in the other gospels. You Remember Matthew Mark and Luke they wrote earlier on after Jesus Jesus was crucified rose again and ascended but then John Was. This old preacher. He was kind of this guy. That wouldn't go away and the Roman Empire finally exiled him to the island of Patmos and where he writes the book of revelation today but before he wrote the book of Revelation He wrote The gospel of John and then he wrote three different letters and that Gospel Account. It's almost like John. Read Matthew Mark and Luke and he said those are great and all of those stories are worth being told but if I could if I could just add this one thing that wasn't mentioned it's it's almost like that friend we all have these friends when you're telling the story right and you're kind of holding court in the group and you're telling the story of what happened but that friend was there when that event happened to and they're like now don't forget to tell them this right now. Don't you missed that detail? But that's not John's that kind of Antsy Kinda Guy. But that's his desire in writing he was like you need to know these things because these are life-giving truths about who Jesus is because we don't want a concocted form of Jesus. We don't want an artificial and superficial form of. Jesus we want the real Jesus and so looking at the gospel of John has helped us to find that the way John has arranged is in these three sets of sevens seven three sets of seven seven witnesses right individuals testifying to his character and his message as John. The Apostle John the Baptist Nicodemus the woman the Will Thomas and finally the Apostle Peter after he had denied Jesus three times. And if you've missed any of these messages you can go to Gaza baptist DOT COM. You can find audio and video these messages if you if you say you know what I missed that and let me catch up and you can do that at about dot com so there are seven witnesses first and then we went through the seven signs. That are that are specific. Events that testify to Jesus's nature and his power. Jesus turning the water into wine. Jesus healing the official son. Jesus Healing Disabled Man. Jesus feeding the multitude which is actually more like twenty thousand people because texture says it was five thousand men and so those men had families so it's probably between fifteen and twenty thousand people that he fed there that Jesus then walked on water. He healed the man born blind and then ultimately the the greatest sign was the raising of Lazarus from the dead but then and since the beginning of the year we have been going through the seven. I am sayings of Jesus. That is the words of Jesus identifying himself as the God of the Old Testament and testifying of his character and his power when God revealed himself to Moses and the Book of Exodus Moses. Said who shall I say has sent me to the people and God said Tell Them I am has since you and so when Jesus says I am the bread of life I am the light of the world. I am the door. I am the Good Shepherd. I am the resurrection and the life. I'm the way the truth and the life and I am the true vine he is saying yes. I am the God of the Old Testament but I want to speak to you with the greatest degree of clarity that I can so that you can understand me and ways that paint this picture in your mind my satisfaction of my sufficiency for your life but in addition to the Gospel account like we said John also wrote three smaller letters and the book of revelation and the New Testament. And while I haven't heard other preachers do this and to finish out their series on the gospel of John and these seven sayings. I don't think we can stop with. I am the vine in John Chapter Fifteen because John had more to say in the book of revelation and he chronicled more things that were said specifically another. I am saying so. We can't stop John Fifteen because John Road we need to. We need to continue on and finish this Sunday. In Revelation Chapter Twenty One. And in fact it's not just in revelation chapter twenty one found in three different places all throughout the book of revelation revelation. Chapter One Verse Eight Revelation Chapter Twenty. One that will see today and then revelation chapter twenty two verse thirteen. Jesus says I am the Alpha and the Omega. I'm the Alpha and the Omega now revelations one of the most intriguing books in the entire Bible one of much speculation and conjecture and this past Wednesday we actually did an overview of the book of revelation. You say it's not right to read the book of revelation defined timelines or predictions about when Jesus will return or who the Anti Christ is in fact if you want to know the reason that John wrote the book of revelation. The reason that he received it you can go back to revelation chapter one versus ten and eleven revelation. Chapter one versus ten and eleven. We find this old man. John Probably about ninety years old and he's writing while he is in exile on this island in Patmos but we find that John is following the pattern of the early church and that it is the Lord's Day Sunday and that he has worshiping the Lord in the spirits right remember. That's what John Chapter four recorded. That's what God's looking for people that worship him in spirit and truth so John in revelation chapter one verse ten. He has worshiping in the spirit. On the Lord's Day. And what actually happens as he is given a vision by the spirit of the day of the Lord so it's kind of a double meaning in Revelation Chapter One Verse Ten worshiping in the Spirit on the Lord's Day but he's given a revelation by the spirit of the Lords of the day of the Lord and that that that Tidal Day of the Lord finds its roots in the Old Testament. Prophets of this day were God would fully and finally bring justice he would fully and finally bring redemption. He would fully and finally bring the restoration of all things. But that wasn't given to us so that we could use it to concoct fabulous end times prophecies and systems of theology that that we can argue about for hours and hours and hours and in fact if that. I've told you I love questions but I really I have. I have no category to argue about the book of revelation. Because you know what I know. Jesus is coming back and I can't wait for that. That's just that's what I know about the booker relation. But but if you WANNA if you WANNA see a broad overview that you can look at our website and listen to the message from this past Wednesday night. What we saw is is that this revelation sean not revelations okay there's no S. on the end of the title and revelation. The book of revelation was given to encourage seven churches in Asia. Minor as they face various persecutions and temptations. You see Jesus wanted them to be faithful. Jesus wanted them to be faithful in the face of persecution in the face of temptations and he wanted to let them know because if you read the letters all of them have different things that that Jon Mentions to them. He has various things that that he challenges them. Honor admonishes them on. It shows us that that one day that will be. We'll be judged not only as individuals. Second Corinthians Chapter Chapter Five or ten tells us judges individuals but will also be judged a church family and specifically. This is why I don't take being pastor lightly if you see at the beginning of each one of those those letters to the churches as to the angel in the Church and whatever you know and that's not that's not it's actually not a really good translation because the word angel really just means the Messenger and so God is is writing through John to the pastors of the church is calling them to accounts saying things like. Hey you're lukewarm. You left your I love or Hey. I know that you've been doer. D- And I don't know about you but I want to be on faithful and that day when when when got holds me accountable for what we did as a church family because I really do believe that I was stand before God and I will give an account for myself. I'll give an account for how let my family. I'll give an account for how I lead this church family. I'll give an account for high use all the resources that God has blessed me with. I'll give an account for all these things and and so. I hope that you will read the book of revelation in the same spirit that John wrote it. So that you can be encouraged and admonish to faithfulness. Where you are right here right now. That's why the book of revelation was written. And so as you as a even as we look at it today and if you go back and read certain things as we talk about it in the community groups tonight. We want to recognize that. That's why it was written to give us hope to be faithful where we are in revelation. Chapter Twenty One and twenty to the last two chapters of the Bible. There's some incredible reasons to find hope and they're very life giving this morning and so we look at revelation chapter twenty one verse one the subtitle of the taxes the new heaven and the New Earth Revelation Chapter Twenty. One verse one. Let's let's get our context here. It says then I saw new heaven and a new Earth for the first heaven and the first Earth had passed away and the sea no more this is John. Ryding beholding this final restoration of all things and while there is much mystery in the book. These last few chapters here. What we understand is a description as best as John can put into words of. What's really going to happen? So there's not as much mystery here as there is in the rest of the book because John is describing this restoration of all things and he says he saw this new heaven and New Earth that means that Satan has fully has been fully and finally defeated in fact if you look at the very previous verse. Right above and revelation Chapter Twenty Verse Fifteen. We see that judgement. The judgement of unbelievers has taken place. It says and if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life he was thrown into the lake of fire but then this first heaven and earth have passed away. You say well why would it need to pass away? Well that's because if you're familiar with the storyline of the Bible you know that. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and at the end of Genesis Chapter One. God looks at his all of his creation. He says that it's very good. And then in chapter two it zooms in on how he created Adam and Eve to be unique above all creation and to be stewards of his creation and yet in genesis chapter one got creates genesis. Chapter Two got entrust mankind with the stewardship of being image bearers in creation. But then in chapter three Adam and Eve through their decision to define life. According to their own terms to disobey God's Commands Sin Enters the world and it breaks the very good creation that God had created and from Genesis. Three on a curse was pronounced on this world that we live in but a promise was also given that one day it would be redeemed and restored. We'll get to and John says and I saw the holy city new Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God prepared as a bride adorned for her husband and I heard a loud voice from the throne saying behold the dwelling place of God is with man he will dwell with them and they will be his people and God himself will be with them as their God. You See let Scriptures inform you about what your eternity is. GonNa look like if you're in Christ if you put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ you see. Our eternal home is not in the skies. How how is typically depicted right there's like mansions and resting on clouds. And maybe maybe I don't. I don't know what your perspective of Heaven is in terms of what we look like but the classic the classic imagery is that. We're all going to be you know kind of like babies with diapers plucking harps with wings. That's not right. Okay the precious moments figurines are not teaching. You sound the truth and I know that devastates many of you. They may be very cute little pictures of the baby. Angels sitting there. There will not all throughout scripture. Angels are pretty scary beings right and and really us as we as we get to this place. We find that we're not dwelling in the clouds. Are we now in fact? We're we're on this new heaven and this new or this is like one of my one of my favorite like trains of thought. Okay this is what our eternity is going to be like that. The world around you right now as it as it as it simulates all five of your senses. That's what eternity is going to be like that. You will be in a physical location and you will be living not jumping from cloud to cloud but you will have a perfect body and what will define heaven as glorious as wonderful as it will be to have family members there who have gone before us as wonderful as it will be to see pearly gates and streets of gold and all those things that these chapters mentioned that are really. John once again doing his best to put it into words. Your eternal home will be made glorious by the fact that God is presence and he's not presence in a world that has been corrupted by sin because he's done away with the first heaven and the first Earth that were corrupted by sin the universe as we know it as we know it now through through the telescopes and and the skies as we look up and the physical places around us all of these things that we experience in this world are tainted by the power in the penalty and the presence of sin. But guess what in this new heaven and a new earth? They're done away with they're gone. And you are living in the perfection that God the father designed for you to live in in the very first two chapters of the Bible Genesis Chapter One and two it is a new creation because he has made it new by by doing away with the power and the presence and the penalty of sin. And that's what verse three is about. It amazes me I heard loud voice from the throne saying behold the dwelling place of man is with God. No it doesn't say that is says the dwelling place of God is with man. In fact the new Jerusalem comes down out of Heaven Right. It's just this incredible picture of a world filled with the presence of God without the presence of sin and I can't wait for it to be quite honest but then there's four the glorious truths verse four and he will wipe away every tear from their eyes and death shall be no more neither shall there be mourning or crying or pain anymore for the former things have passed away. You see this world that was created for. Our good was cursed because of sin. Have you ever really considered and meditated upon the effects of sin on this world? Let's just think about it for a few moments. Consider the various ways that evil exists in this world. We use words like Evil and corruption and wickedness transgressions conflict. War Broken Families Divorce mortar of murder. Assassination suicide genocide broken nece broken. This is probably one of the best words that I can think of. And you know why because broken this means that there was a state in which something was sound. It was whole it was good. It was perfect but then it became broken from its original design. You need another the world you're living in today is not God's original designed for you the the things that you experience in this world the broken this of this world is not God designed for you originally to live in. He designed for you to live in the relational broken this that you experience things like bitterness and unforgiveness and betrayal and Gossip Adultery Disharmony Rage Lust. Jealousy envy covetousness bullying shaming hate lies Physical Abuse Verbal Abuse Sexual Abuse. We we even create words like Frienemie a frenemy. Right as a friend. Who's really your enemy right. The youth note. I'm talking about now sally talking. Yeah we we have to invent words to describe the awfulness of the broken this of this world. Don't we and yet it's still fall short. You have physical broken this. Think about Lou GEHRIG's disease. Ls thing about Parkinson's think about addiction HIV AIDS cancer heart attacks Alzheimer's Dementia cystic fibrosis paralysis. Blindness deafness Uncle Arthur which I later found out and my wife was arthritis aging in general. You realize that every single day of your life is a growing testimony that you were not made for this world as you wake up with those aches and pains. I've told it forty my eyes sites go and I'm thinking it's not there so okay. I all of these. Things are a testimony that this world is broken. And you were not made for this world. I think about broken this a even the corona virus you want all the all that's doing throughout the world think about the plagues before that of a bola yet SARS and murders. And all these things with acronyms. Names got broken. This and the natural world earthquakes tornadoes hurricanes soon Nami plagues famine drought. Wildfires landslides. Sinkholes I'll be honestly. I'm kind of scared of sinkholes like that. Especially as much rain as we've had going on lately I'm like so you're telling me that the ground can just open up underneath you and you fall into like stand on these promises like when I think about that but apart from these. Have you ever thought about how we live in a world that is filled with unintended consequences? Even the best laid plans of mice and men have negative impacts. That's a result of the fall. The fall means that there's no perfect situation there's no utopia there's no ideal environment. There's no safe spaces as much as you would want to create them. You See Broken. This even enters our most strategic and well-meaning endeavors doesn't it. There's always a downside. There's always unforeseen circumstances. There's always things that we never saw coming one way that we see this that it really illuminates for us. And and just just before going to that this is this sounds like pessimism and sounds like cynicism but all. I'm doing setting you up to embrace a very incredible truth here in a moment. So just just have this train of thought with me. One way that we see this whole thing about unintended consequences that will probably be very real for large majority of you. Is We take medicines that are meant to remedy various elements. And yet you always have that long list of what side effects side effects you know I was able to take this pill that made me feel better but I can put. It could potentially cause nausea vomiting diarrhea. Rash increased appetite decreased appetite fatigue sleeplessness itching swelling easy bruising free bleeding confusion agitation self injury cancer stroke reduced fertility weight loss. Hair loss hearing loss blindness. And maybe death right and to that one comedian said I think I'll just write listen to these actual worst drug side effects. Not Making light of. This didn't WanNA get dark here. Okay there is and somebody you pharmacists in here. You would say yeah. Those are kind of outliers but this is this. Is What the attorneys say that they have to say on these drugs. There's a drug called Mirror. Plex that if you have. Parkinson's or restless legs syndrome that you may experience unusual urges to gamble antics which helps stop smoking. You could get something called Krona version or demonic nightmares. And have you ever take an Ambien tries to help you sleep pretty sure? My wife saw pink elephants. Walking through the room with that one can call severe sleepwalking. I had a church member previous church. Who Woke up driving? Yeah it's no joke ladies. If any of you takes Kress store for your cholesterol just know that one of the side effects is ratcheting up female aggression or husbands if your wife takes Kress store. There's a cancer treatment. Trump called zillow data. That it makes your fingerprints disappear is crazy if you take adderall for. Adhd one of the side effects is. You're more likely to believe lies gullible. I guess it induces gullibility right and finally there's a drug that regulates heartbeat called amiodarone. Try to practice that one. Get this the side. Effect is or one potential side effect. Is it could potentially cause a blue gray coloring of the skin and something called nob- reading no breathing. I Yeah I'm not sure I want to experience that you see. Because of the fall we live in a world filled with unintended consequences and side effects social media. Networks gives us the ability to share funny cat videos all across the world but it also enables human trafficking and some of the worst forms of public shaming and cyber bullying and awful things that you could have ever imagined. Capitalism and free enterprise results in some by making them greedy socialism becomes communism and totalitarianism that has brought death to millions throughout history in a world of religious liberty radical Islam and wolves in sheep's clothing and false teachers preaching things like the Prosperity Gospel in a world of free speech ideas have consequences and bad ideas victims in a world where we have the right to bear arms. We also live in a world. Ramesh shootings exist feel it ultimately though the greatest side effect of the fall is something that we will all face called death. It's inescapable babies die in the womb. Newlyweds down their honeymoon. Young people dying middle aged people die old people die family members close to us. Thousands die every day from preventable. Diseases like malaria and diarrhoea. Just in America alone over sixty two million abortions throughout the past several decades car wrecks plane crashes honestly and I mean this. Do you want to try to find hope anywhere in this world from the beginning of life to the end? Can you really have certainty? You see Jesus in light of all that the former things passing away look at verse. Five and revelation chapter twenty one John Rights and he who is seated on the throne said behold. I making what all things everything new everything everything we just mentioned dont way with. I'm making all things new. We'll give her six and he said to me it is done. I'm the Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end to the thirsty I will give from the spring of of the water of life without payment. You see the first thing that that I see in. This is the failure of red-letter Bibles. Because I have a red letter Bible but is verse five in Red Letters. I read letters. No okay now. Skip Bo to revelation chapter twenty. Two verse thirteen. Anybody got a red letter Bible. As revelation twenty two thirteen in red letters hate is says the exact same thing. What could this mean? Revelation Chapter Twenty one is spoken out by God the father who is seated on the throne revelation chapter twenty two thirteen spoken by Jesus. God's son God the Son God the Father and Revelation Chapter Twenty one God the Son and revelation chapter twenty two. What have we seen all throughout the gospel of John? That gives us hope that Jesus is really God one in the same one God three persons God the Father God the Son God the Holy Spirit. You don't get it. I don't either not to its fullest. It's a mystery just like the entire book of revelation. It's a mystery and we're meant to stand in all of mystery and now it might look like a math problem that you might want to try to work out but guess what there will always be limitations. But that's exactly what I see here. Is that the one that has seated on the throne as the Alpha and Omega and the one that speaks in revelation. One and the one that speaks revelation. Twenty two also the Alpha and the Omega Jesus is God he is the Alpha and the Omega. Now these are the beginning and ending letters of the Greek alphabet. It's like someone saying that. Jesus is a to Z. He is the creator of all things the beginning of history and he is the goal of history the end the the one for whom all things are made all history is moving towards glorify him. There is no thing that anyone experiences in the broken. This of this world that cannot and will not be rectified by the awesome holy magic majestic justice of our sovereign. God He alone can bring good from the evil of this world. That's what it means that. Jesus often the Omega he is the beginning and the end which means that life the life that you and I crave is frowned in him alone. Nobody can give you hope to face death like Jesus can and nothing can put you in a hopeless position like being faced with the death of a loved one or your own death. The First Baptist missionary from the United States of America was a man named added. Iram Jetson and that an armed jetson was raised in a Christian home and he went to college and just to show you that. It's not a new thing. He ended up actually rejecting his Christian upbringing in college and he began to to walk with a group folks that were known as the free thinkers and one of those was a very confident atheist. Stick man named Jacob. Eames Jacob. Beams was one of those guys that can shut you down in a debate. An IRAM had no. He had no response to it and so at an Iram rejected as Christian upbringing and began to be a free thinker and he began to go throughout life and just kind of live thinking that he had done something new and done something bold just like popular Internet stars. Renton leak have done in the past several weeks and talking about their spiritual deconstruction. It's nothing new at an armed jetson experienced it too so jetson in his freethinking as Mrs going along. He's had a conversation with his parents who disagree with his new state but also don't want to try and force him to believe anything and so they just let him go about his business and he's going from one place or another ends up in a hotel for the night and it's late at night it's it's the weather's getting bad and he knows he needs to get off the horse and go in the hotel and so he goes into the innkeeper and he says to innkeeper. He says you have any rooms. And the innkeeper says well I do but you might not want the one. I've got the one I've got is actually a room that the man next door is undergoing an awful illness and he's dying and he is just shouting in pain over and over and over again and being tired out an honors just give it to me and so he goes up and he said it plagued him to hear that man on the verge of Hell and crying out without hope all night long midnight one am to am three am four am five am and as the sun rose. The next morning this man died but all night at an Iram had been subjected to the pain to the cries of hopelessness that this man faced and had an arm just felt like he'd walk that road with him and he woke up the next morning and the innkeeper could tell that he was downtrodden. And that he was he had been affected by this and I don I just went to the innkeeper. Any return the key to the room. He said who was that man and the innkeeper said he was a young man named Jacob. Beams and at that point at an iron said. I don't want to go into eternity like that. Not An iron began to seek Christ and he got radically saved. And like I said became the first missionary from the United States for Spanish missionary from America to Southeast Asia but that brings us to the point to recognize that Jesus being the often the Omega means that he's the beginning and the end he was there when you were formed in your mother's womb and he will also if you put your faith in him be there to welcome you into an attorney that he is prepared for you. What hope can you find in this world that can give you that kind of peace? We can't we can't find hope like that. We chronicled all the things that this world brings us into this world. God has sent his only son to give us life to give us hope to give us peace in the face of all this world can throw at us. But how do we find it? John has helped us with that. But there's something something remarkable that happens at the beginning of verse six that at the end of time when God is making all things new. He says these three words that ring strangely familiar. If you know your Bible it says it is done remember. The storyline of the Bible Creation Fall Redemption Restoration. I want to persuade you as we close. If you WANNA find the kind of hope that only Jesus can give to find a life in this broken world and you must trust in these six words of your savior. The first is found in John. Chapter Nine Verse Thirty when Jesus. Hanging on the cross bearing the weight of our sin undergoing to death that we should have undergone. He cries out in a loud voice. John Chapter Nineteen thirty. He says it is finished. What's finish the work of Redemption Creation? Fall Redemption? Jesus came as God with us. God in the flesh so that you and I could find a a savior to bear our sin. Somebody who came to manifest the love of God in our midst by dying as an innocent man for his enemies so Jesus bore our sin. He bore our suffering on the cross and as he cried out he cried out in a loud voice three words. It is finished. One word in the Greek tell us I just one solid. It's paid in full. It's finished the work has been accomplished the work of redemption. But we are living in what's called an already not yet kind of time. Has Jesus won the victory as he he has because death has been conquered. But we live in a world of death don't we? It's an already not yet reality. It has been initiated. But we are living in a time. Where we're awaiting the fullness of it to come and God doesn't want you to worry about whether or not he will complete the work. He has started as his son died and rose again. And that's why he gives us these three words in revelation chapter twenty one for six. It's not to tell us why it's it is done. It is finished. It is done. Get Revelation Chapter Twenty One verse six Revelation Chapter Twenty. One verse six and he said to me it is done. I'm the Alpha and the Omega the beginning and the end of the thirsty sounds like John Four. I will give the spring of water of life without payment you see redemption has been accomplished restoration as promised and will one day be completed. God has designed for you to live with him and one day he is coming to live with you to restore his presence to our every waking moment without the presence of sin to relieve us of all broken this to wipe away every tear to right all wrongs and to seal the animal the annals of history with Justice and righteousness. Jesus is coming again as a declaration of God's finished work of restoration creation fall redemption restoration. We rejoice in these truths. There was a pastor from Colorado. Who is taking his family on vacation and when his kids asked him where they were taken where he was taken him he replied junction city. Kansas and the kids just stared blandly back at him. It's where his dad had pastored a small church and he thought it'd be fun to go back there so he pumped up the motel that they'd be staying in Dreamland where there's always vacancy right. He pumped up the pool that they would swim in bowling alley that they would go to where he'd hung out as a kid in reality though they're only going to stay in junction city. One night this dad was gonNA pull you know one of these things that Dad's try to do to kind of set you up and then it'd be like Oh yeah so he was going to go from junction city. All the way down Orlando Florida Disneyworld. Which I did that distance. I wouldn't wanNA drive that but I settled junction city. But after touring L. Church. The pastor decided to drop the big news he said. Wait a second. This is boring. Let's just drive to Disneyworld. And all of a sudden the mom she whips out these four custom-made Mickey mouse ear embroidered name across the front hats and to his shock and all the kids said who wants to get back in the van. What about swimming pool? You were telling us about where to go bowling. And he just there like what what's happening. Hey pumped it up too much right. He created longing in his kids for junction city. Kansas when he planned for them to go to Disneyworld. That's not angels getting their wings or anything. So don't worry about that. You see what story illustrates for us as a quote that CS Lewis said a long time ago. He said we are half hearted creatures fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us like an like an ignorant child wants to go on making mud pies and a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by offer of a holiday at sea. We are far too easily. Pleased with what this world has to offer my plea to you today would be. Don't settle for small desires meaning. Don't settle for what this world has to offer because all it has to offer you is broken. Nece don't pitch a fit to route a merry go round injunction junction city when Space Mountain awaits. Recognize where you were designed and created to be and then live for that heavenly home? Let's pray together.

Whether, you thinking about see this stuff. He recommended this to me. This is a fat food. But I picked the one that has four grams of carbohydrates in it. He excoriated. Don't WanNa take that one. You pick the one that had the. because. It's It's f-bomb. It's malted chocolate macadamia nuts I'm just I'm just? Wondering why I was. An -ticipant ING Vinnie's wrath at us for not for taking something with one grab carbohydrates. Well, that was something else was. Pure food laggards. Super Superfood. And our coffee well. Here's the thing you know what I find. Find Interesting. What I find interesting is. How. People like yourself and I, was talking to Matt the Andrea who was on this kind of thirty day diet, which was like a lot of protein, and almost no fat, no alcohol, and no this, and that no everything else and. It's funny how? A small group of people. Will. Over. I say over. Hyper. Scrutinize themselves their diet their world. You know what I mean with constant kind of. Evaluating counting figuring out, what did you do? What didn't you do? What more can you do you know? And then there's a group that just throws it all to the fuck and wind, and doesn't think about it at all, and doesn't care and if you bring it up, they get angry at you and and I'm like. Where did so many of those people? Come from which. The group. Whether the Kasich Group, I'm just talking. We talked about tossed to the wind versus the counting right, but which one did I say? I the county, one right term, but where it then I said wonder where this group comes from. Now I said there's a group that counts all these things, and then there's a group that throws everything to the win. Where did all these people come from which I would? Assume I was talking about the group who through everything to win because with the last group I discussed that would be an astle. I was talking about the first group so where they all come from. I don't know we seem to be creating more. Here's an interesting concept I was talking to yesterday with somebody which is. A lot of people feel out of control. and. I'd never, Really thought about that feeling. A feeling out of control, but I'm starting to realize there's a fair amount of people that feel out of control, and by the way they control themselves by cutting on their thigh or defying you, yup or arguing with a cop. That's the way they feel like I've now I've I've got some control back because I'm telling someone. No, I'm not doing this thing. That's exactly right. Isn't that interesting, but I realized that doesn't trust. I, yes, I realize as I think. As I sorta think about like my mom and her totality. She felt out of control her horse. You never felt in control and I think about. The people like yourself or many other people I admire and. Other folks like that. They're in control. They feel in control. What is it the core that I think in most cases? Is something called self efficacy? right, not self worth self efficacy. Make you feel effective like you have a skill. You can apply it. It's not different than your building analogies. Put up all time. So self efficacy is a really important feeling, and we just don't be. Don't recur people we. We just give them self worth just because. Right so they've thus feel out of control, and thus when you say to them, Hey, do this thing and they don't do it. That is their feeling of control. It's pushing back I can control you right whereas that doesn't feel like control the May. That feels like you're just insubordination by just so silly because we'll take away I, it's it's so now that I'm thinking about. Many of these people have known in my life. As a person! That feels effective. I keep thinking. Why are you wasting so much time with this thing and now I realized? Why does it make sense to you to have the same discussion argument? Why are we talking about this again? How come you won't do? X Y and Z and the answer is. They feel out of control, and this is their control whereas I don't feel out of control, I feel like I want to hurry up and move to my next project right and typically the things that make people feel all out of control also make them not trust anything or anybody. So? WHO The why would they trust you to give them good advice? I well. That is interesting because my mom doesn't trust ill. which is an interesting corollary to feeling out of control? By ultra really kind of trauma stuff. Everything's trauma but I'm now looking back. When I was nineteen. And I was skill Lewis. I had my skill was at a strong back and I'd try anything. But that wasn't skill. That was more like a an effort based that was that was like to say. That was basically rudy on the Notre Dame football team. I have no ability, but I'll try hard. And I do. Think back on those days sometimes, and it felt out of control. It does feel scary. Now Control. It felt like an uncertain futures. What's ahead I? Don't know how to plan for. It's out of control well, not only that but. I don't know how to plan for the future. I don't have any skills. No efficacy. Yes, so I found myself sitting in my dad's garage in north Hollywood thinking. You know sitting at home and looking at brochures to become an ambulance driver brochures to become a you know a wildlife game warden. Weird jobs and stuff and just sort of looking at all of them. But a constant. Nagging of out of control and I have I can't. I have no idea what tomorrow brings our next year. Brings and I don't know how to plan for it. I don't know how to. Coerce it or massage or get it to work. For me as being adult and still having those feelings. Crazy right? Yeah, in my world, I was a male high school like I wasn't adult. You know what I mean. Well. You're altered, your young adult, but well on your adulthood psych roof. Started finding some efficacy. You started finding the box in the building comedy where you were building. Efficacy is what you're doing. Yes, in a in a very aggressive sort of fast fast way, you know but I, remember just sort of thinking. God, this is a horrible feeling. and. Although. I was not going to battle with other people about it. I was more like how do I get myself out of this. Position Right hoster as Ealing. If you know anything or more narcissistic, you would place the sphere of influence outside of yourself. Right right I you with the low self esteem. We're taking it internally with like that's what you and I were doing, and I remember it vividly. I think males have a little more this to some extent that having purpose place in the world is really important to them the Mid Twenty S. I always kind of liken it to. The dog that just has free reign of the House and it needs to kind of be in its. Crate. It's even worse because you probably worse. Yeah, because there's there's an identity component to it I, I grew from behavior standpoint, but you need. There's actually who am I in the world. Yeah you know was funny. I never told the story ready I. Never told me I didn't know there was any left their sleep. After the after the spot. Yeah I'll tell you the story. After, I hit the method man fresh approach to grooming stay clean and fresh should be fuss-free body washes. Two in. One Shampoo, dishwashers like shampoo and Conditioner Ice Andy Outer Answer, all thoughtfully formulated and smell, great clean design inside and out sophisticated nature inspired fragrances. Keep your body your pits in your hair fresh feel good about the products putting on yourself cruelty free tested by people not on animals. The Sea. And Surf. That's the smell I love. That the odorant Chris Ocean salt water sent, whisk you away into a win capped waves, just being like. kind of like. The old spice man back in the day. Save fifteen percent with code eighty s when you buy online. At method man Dot Com. That's M. A. T. H., od M., e. dot com visit method, man, dot, com, use code eighty s and get fresh without the fos-. When I was like nineteen. Eighteen and a half nineteen I've sort of languishing in that garage and I didn't have any skill sets. You know, but I felt like I should. But I know Kinda. Wear to turn how to find it or develop and at some point. I thought to myself. I'm going to build myself up bookcase and it, but it's going to be a proper one like a nice one, and I went down to animal lumber with whatever twenty bucks I had to my name and bought some planks. Remember buying some dowels and I was going to. Put it to the plank and the Dow and the thing. and. I didn't have tools. I didn't have ability I just. Couldn't do it this when you were trump drywall at the time now, people. Not If I. Years yeah was like cleaning carpet, but I, but I felt like cleaning carpet wasn't a skill. I was going to learn a skill. You know and I said about to teach myself skill, but I didn't have a mentor. There's no Internet. Internet and there was no I. Didn't my Dad Tools? I didn't have any good tools. And and the thing was just a bust, and and it was just sort of one more example of that I wasn't. I had no skill and they couldn't do anything but I I remember sort of seeking it out. You know I went there, and I was like I'm going to do this I'm going to do it right. And I didn't know how to do it right. So I ended up actually spending twenty five bucks actually sinking deeper 'cause I had a pile of wood. And no skill and nobody helped me and no no product. But it was, it was an early impulse. Let's TALK TO BRIAN Brian Ross Brian Burbank by Iron Byron Sorry Byron I blame Br, anyone named Brian. Spells, her name, the fucking why I blame him. It's not my fault. Bryan with a Y. Fault. Cranston bit you're listening agreed. Sorry, go ahead! Get it on yeah man. Hey So I just wanted to give you a quick backstory on emotion emotional resilience. and. When contributing factor was listening to Dr, drew on, love, line him talking about. I can achieve, or people can achieve emotional resiliency by learning to regulate their emotions so. A couple of years ago. I found myself. A emotionally wounded a homeless alcoholic. So I went was in Burbank. Winter treatment. Treatment what? What led you doing that? Because that's the moment, right? How did you did you turn it around and get care? I was. I was an alcoholic and knew it, and was searching on the Internet, but I was afraid to go to it meeting so ended up running out of the out of money. Okay, so I am I shouldn't storage. The person and that was running the storage I told him Nice store and they said Hey. You GotTa go to the Department of Social Services. In sylmar and what they'll do is, they'll put you in Rehab, and they'll put you on the fast track to rehabilitation well. Yeah. So, anyway, just real quick I'm. I can wrap it up pretty quick so. My counselor and Rehab. He just said. Byron you're GONNA athletic background. You bootstrapped your life in the past. You have work ethic. You GotTa fucking complete the twelve step program. You gotta get a sponsor. Okay, you already know you're emotionally vulnerable if you can't. The key to your success is going to be that you heal your emotional. Lose your baggage You'll eliminate the baggage. Okay, and then we're what we're GONNA DO WE'RE GONNA? Put You your business on Google and we're. We're going to develop a three minutes strategy, but then six months. Okay, you're going to be getting calls on Google and your bike repair business I had I'm a ex bike racer and have a full set of tools I started a mobile bike repair service, and right now. My business is booming right now, so it's very interesting. Angel thing I do. I just had. My Guy Peter go through. My family's bites and work on work on. But the mobile bike repairs a good idea for business. Right, right and and Eric recovery the legend of this. Excuse me. The miracle of recovery is what leads you to this. Yes absolutely absolutely, do you? Have you have a truing stand? I! Yeah, the truing stand. Okay you're. We get it on when we don't. Ruling standards. I'm no idea. If that I don't show Gary. We're supposed to ask. I'm guessing has something to do with getting the wheel right? I'm but I. Don't know man Gary truing Stan. Are these things we know about? I'd absolutely no idea. But. Added to the list. The WE'VE RUN OUT. Of Room now. Onto the table. Really I had the list, but I came onto the tablecloth. which is a paper one now so? That's. A truing stand. Is. And I never I I've never a bike repair per se, but like bikes. Baba, plot. Rims would get bent. And the truing stands like little set forks, and you put the Rim on at. On a table and you spin the wheel and you'll see the wheel going. Don't going, and there's a little device that sort of moves a little closer and it rubs, and where rubs it stops, and then you take the spoke that sort of corresponding on the other side. You tight-knit it'll. Whole set. Way Or that spoke. That's on the other side of the hub new. Pull it loose in this little. pull it that way. Nice. It's very basic. Simple but it super effective truing Stan which Byron Scott. Inspiring. What's it called? When you don't. When you don't have to turn, stand, you don't have all the tools used. Adam Karol method impolite, and still make it happen to frame came to throwing stand and the zipped. I became a little gizmo. That divided the guide. You can flip the bike over to spin it. You Open Up. A little. Yeah, that's it. That's it before has before and one hundred bucks for a bike. Stand right so good for you. Yeah, you're all booked up. Give the name of your. Business out. It's a Byron's bike dot com, of course it is. And I just started up a podcast. On itunes sober Sherpa with Byron Tgi Friday and see if you can help me out with the homeless thing that get involved there because when this cove things over, that's going to be our biggest problem. So I'm actually I'm I'm doing some volunteering right now? So yes, being service that the that's about. Ten to fifteen percent of my free time than I could spend on that. He's got to change. Yeah wasn't things we've got to help these people and say ridiculous the. Read Our Rights? Someone's having some back issues. About having surgery, I. Feel about? Well sometimes. Well find out often I'll tell you. The criteria I have like the now Michael Thirty Seven Indianapolis. Dr Do. Thanks for taking my call you bay. So quick, quick back. Story kind of had low back pain off and on for years. You got something wrong. Ben Weird or whatever and it lasts for a day or two just gonNA. Gotten worse over time. where it lasts each time, it happens to last longer and longer finally back in January. Kinda start having. Severe Pain in my hip and it was kind of going down on my leg. And you know I I. You know maybe fellow word just did. Something didn't really think back. By just no matter what I did you the rest of Medicine Go away? Finally went into. See a doctor. He took an x Ray. So that you can see one of the gaps between the LUMBAR. Was All messed up something and And you could see that that no bad herniated disc. So. Back, surgeon. He's like the only thing we can do is surgery and he wants me to have a micro lumber. Dissect me. Did. He say that you have to have this or he said if you can't tolerate the pain anymore, that's something I can do. Well by the time because of all the stuff it took a long time to. Actually talk to him by the time we saw him. My pain was basically gone very things. Were causing pain by that point right, so you don't let this is. This is true of almost all herniated discs. They get better by themselves. You don't have to have the operation, unless unless in fact, in fact in my experience, the the back operations. Generally. Make things worse the microsystem is sort of the way to go. If you're going to do it, but if you are doing it for pain, I would avoid it at all costs if you're having a motor problem either you can't get weakness or muscle loss or some difficulty with your balance in that leg. That's a whole different matter, but if it's sensory of its pain I I would avoid at all cost. Well. You say that, and that's why I kind of figured. The only reason I called ask is the only thing I still in having. Is a little bit of like numbness and Tingling in my Shin Down into my foot. And he yeah go ahead well. I my feeling is I would try all therapies stretching all SAUNAS. Every possible thing versus getting scalpels out, and if I went through those protocols for A. Period of time and they were not effective then but but. Everything, even then it's a little bit of pain or numbness so what? Drew! You got thoughts on Cameroon Glenn I'M GONNA. Try Not quite sure what he's talking about. Thinking problems what he's talking ambulance near. Hey Matt Twenty eight Oregon. Either Hey man? Hey first of all I wanted to say Outta, my mind about five months straight of cold showers every day, then awesome. Oh Good! I've done it through the whole Cova thing. It's been very very through goes into the back door though he does hot and then he turns it. Tell us just in my ass. I sit and. For a while where you start with hot and then go to cold is more shocking, but I do agree that the and downs. Better. It's the week man's. Resident well I won't argue with you that it's not going into the icy pool in the winter swim now that that that's off the table for me now 'cause it's hot outside, and also the kids attend a turn the heat on and around the pool. That here is the key and it gets. It can be distilled down to this, and this is why I drew. You can't go hot to call. It. Is You looking up at that shower head when you just step into the shower, you turning it in sort of stepping into it, and and now my problem is. I. Can't if you turn on the cold? It comes out as a trickle. If you start to turn it up, it comes out faster, but it gets warm, so it's hard to get ready stream. That I don't have that problem well, so here's the thing if you have two knobs and maybe do. To dial just two one dot. Will so the thing that's curious about the dial as I've found at least at my house, which is the dial in my house is designed to not take a cold shower at full force, so you turn it. Eight turn in. It's all cold, but it's coming out at a week page. Turn it up. It starts getting hotter anyway, but the initial. Last is always cold, no matter what and it in the the. Now! There's no here's what I'm saying. At this point I don't think there's a physiological. Benefit. It's not cold enough for long enough. It's an emotional benefits purely at this point, which is I, turn it to cold, and I stepped right into it, and I get hit with this sort of shockingly cold thing that lasts all of ten seconds at this point. Oh you don't get it on. A drew. I'm trying to explain. Really key. It starts to warm. It doesn't give warm doesn't get comfortable, but it starts to change into not not freezing. I can't keep the pace the flow up at freezing, so but point is i. do have that experience of going to do this today and then. I just do IT I. Can't come off the hot. Do it off the Col-. Matt. Okay, so I have a question about restless legs, syndrome related and keep it going, and if I could actually wanted to tell a story related to. Your international inner interaction with the and Dr Bruce That's actually related if I can't. So this is going back to the Health Watch days and I thought I think this is one of the. Probably, one of the funniest moments from back then but Dr. Bruce was going over like sleep hygiene habits. And he's going over what not to do and he's like. All Right and alcohol is probably the worst thing you can do before bed. And then he goes really 'cause. It's my top three. Number one two or feeding off twice. Yeah it was it was hilarious. and And, so That's it is somewhat related question because I've had restless leg syndrome pretty much since I can remember since like elementary school, and the only thing I can I that I figured that can temporarily make it. Go Away is when you're in your refractory period, and it's about a thirty minute window that it goes away. It's interesting and. Yeah and so that's been of like. Have you ever had any way? EMORY or anything to see if you have some sort of a cult spine problem? I know I've had MRI's my shoulder before, but nothing related somebody might want to address buying because that maybe with Spina Bifida who knows what it's really setting this up. All right, let me hit a lot of treatment. A mirror pex is sort of my go-to. What it's an Anti Parkinson Medicaid is all these medicines child balance in the spinal cord, and that's what and what? What breasts leg is dopamine unbalanced causes this feeling of pain and wanting to move your legs and sometimes crappy feelings your legs. All Right? Let me hit Tommy John.

I listened to geo- and classic buying stuff all the time and I just love listening to these old episodes. He will think I'm crazy. Listen to a show that's nineteen years old, but it's still so funny today, and there's a phrase that you had said in. This is about a one, and it's one of the few times that you actually get very embarrassed because you. You, said something that Anderson had and kept playing with when anytime he would play at drew laugh and you get very embarrassed by. Do you remember a phrase that you had said that you? You clean your drunk or high? But I think you misspoke. And he pulled out of context and I'm wondering your member. What that phrase Anderson did this or I did this? Adams said they actual line and it when it made him sound down. You're added. I asked him I asked him to pull it out now now he he's talking this. This has been settled on the air. If it's the one I'm thinking of I wasn't embarrassed. I was angry at Anderson Because I. It's the one I want. The world is your choice, because that's all the world. Yeah, and we brought Anderson and we found the whole thing. We played it in its entirety. And it is, he is taking it out of kind of course, not of course he was playing it as if I meant it. I was sincere about. Because it sounds sincere, but it's me making fun of motivational speaker whatever it is. That he that I knew was pulled out of contacts. The other one is okay and is in push the capacity to push the potential. Whatever just whatever that one was, that would go. was. It always. It always bothered me, and we did get to the bottom of it, but it bothered me. that it made me sound like a blowhard sort of Tim. Robbins kind of Tony Tony Robbins Kinda. Guy, but I was making fun of them, and that's why it had the Gravitas to it. It's like. The world is euro sister because and that's. All the all the world is it's not something I would ever say I'd never say that way you look you never know when you talk all night. What what comes out especially out of context? God well. No, no, I'm not saying I mean yes, no, you never. We're all capable of saying dumb. Sounding things meaning at Yes, I just happen to know that's not what I meant. It was taken out of context, and we found the longer version of it and I think we settled it on on. ACS show some several years ago. So that's awesome. That's that's what I know. Well thank you I, Love Michelle it's great and even the current form. It's awesome well. Thank you champion Steve from Atlanta. How's IT GOING OVER THERE IN ATLANTA? We! You've seen a decrease in hospitalizations. From day one of reopening back at the end of April, there's a few blips where it goes up by a couple, but it's usually because of reporting on average. We lose twenty to twenty five Hospitalizations Day We're all going back in Metro Atlanta, at least in a very smart way, there's masks everywhere revamp being Hampton, enticing and cleanliness restaurants mostly patio seating some indoor but people are smart about it, and you have a few snitching, but nowhere near what you have to deal with out in La so. It's not so bad. Thanks Nice Gary Seeming and find that New York Times article from. I don't know four weeks ago five weeks ago. Three three, three or four ago when they're basically saying like the Georgia governor's got blood on his hands Georgia Yeah Florida. Georgia Florida Georgia and Florida both they said like that. Okay. All right but here's what I'm saying. Whoever wrote that article? Don't we now have the right to not listen to you when you write your next article. That's what that's all I'm saying is. Like talking about my mom, but when my mom talks, I don't listen to anything. She ever says because of her batting average. Now I. There are other people my life when they talk. I tend to listen. But what is this relationship where you listen to the next one the next one? Hey, man, the next the fact that we listen to that Ferguson Guy at the Imperial College of London he missed by a factor of one hundred thousand on every prediction he ever made. The mad cow disease. There were some other outbreaks missed by thousands. Why do we listen? Why did that prediction that model of five million dead in America sit on the front page? New York Times for three weeks because it was doom, and it was gloom and I've always said. Bullet train. That thing was supposed to be built in ten minutes for five dollars, and it turned out to be two hundred billion dollars, and we pulled the plug on it, and then that was. Super decimates. That were low, and it turned out to behind then of course without cove in nineteen. That's what's behind. Turn out to be low, and you think that's a coincidence I. Don't think it's a coincidence. I think that's cover. That's that's government trying to manipulate. If you if you were being? If, you're attempting to be accurate. Then sometimes, you would estimate the cost of a bridge. It'd be more random viewed. Come in lower. Yeah, if if that's what you're attempting for, you're just saying what is that pinpoint and I just get it right on their. You'd be building a new.

You got to make no mom and last just giving down the cobblestone. Fund and Crew. Welcome to dishing. Brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness. Today, we have a great discussion plan about stress. Sleep problems and weight gain. All three of those are near and dear to my heart. My name is Joanne right out I'm arrest registered and licensed Dietitian, and I've been teaching the life changing benefits of practicing good nutrition in classes and to clients for the past over thirty years. I, don't need to say how many? I have always been intrigued with nutrition and that is why I became a Dietitian. I know if I am to be an effective role model, I need to practice these habits in my own kitchen and I do true health begins with preparing an eating real food. I have been helping clients with their health in individual appointments and in small group classes for many years now. Favorite, my favorite class to teach is the menopause survival seminar because one of the many things this class addresses is how stress and sleep issues can lead to weight gain especially during menopause. So today I am very fortunate. I have the pleasure of introducing new voice on dishing up nutrition Nikki Daring is. Here with me behind the other Mike this morning Nikki has been working at nutritional weight and wellness for the past two years. been very anxious to get a chance to be on dishing up nutrition. She is also a mother of Max almost four years old. So she has a busy life. Nikki, has also experience some of her own health problems about two and a half years ago Nikki experienced concussion from an auto accident. So she knows a lot about nutrition and concussions good morning, Nikki. It's so good to be here with you today tell our listeners a little more about yourself. Good Morning Joann thank morning much. It is so exciting to be on dishing up nutrition. Talking about my favorite topic nutrition. I'm a self-proclaimed nutrition nerd to the core. Fascinated with the effects of health food affects our body. I want to tell our listeners how I found nutritional, weight, and wellness. My after my car accident and concussion I was struggling. Even though I'd been a Dietitian for seven years working with people going through at last surgery. I didn't really know what I should eat to heal. My brain was like was habit as luck would have it I. actually stumbled upon a dishing up nutrition podcast about food to heal the brain after a concussion. From my concussion I suffered a lot of different symptoms. I had memory problems, poor focus, and fatigue just to name a few. I learned from my experience that nutrition plays a huge role in the healing process. To this day I, still I'm amazed at the healing power of nutrition. Just eating real food and eliminating those process carbs improved my focus and memory. Eating real food helped me sleep better I. Have Good Energy. As my brain continues to heal I. Know I have have to eat well to continue the healing process. I am truly a believer in the power of nutrition. That's great. Nikki. Thank you. Our listeners can appreciate the healing journey you have experienced. So today to prepare for our topic. We asked listeners to send in their questions about stress and sleep, and we received hundreds of questions. If you are having trouble falling asleep. Or staying asleep, not only do we both understand firsthand, but we have many possible solutions to share with you today. I can certainly relate to this topic because a health problem I personally needed to work on with sleep that was huge for me, and now I make sure I get at least seven and a half hours of sleep most nights. Parents you know our sleep is often challenged by our children whether they are babies, toddlers, teens, or even adult children who have moved back home because of life circumstances, our job layoff restrictions, and certainly now do to covid nineteen. We've got a lot of things that have happened for people. One thing I know for sure is when I don't sleep at least seven and a half hours most nights, I start packing on a few extra pounds and my clothes don't fit right. Frustrating, very frustrating. Before, we start answering questions sent in by many of our listeners. Joanna I want to explain why people typically gain weight when they are under stress and lack sleep. In our nutrition for weight loss classes, we explain that people can lose weight while they sleep this really certainly perks people's ears up. I can lose weight while I sleep or sure. So bio chemically I just want to explain a little how that works. So bio chemically. Five or six hours a night your adrenal glands secrete the stress hormone, Cortisol? which can cause you to gain weight. I just want to repeat that because I think that's really really important. 'cause bio chemically when you hear that your ears kind of go. ooh What does that mean told Meiomi Hammock -ly when you sleep only five or six hours a night, your adrenal glands secrete the stress Hormone Cortisol, which can cause you to gain weight. Many of my clients come into their first appointment and tell me that they are sleeping only five to six hours a night. I know this is normal for many people. So you're not alone out there. I've had many clients. There's an upside to this many clients lose ten pounds when they just get enough sleep for three to four weeks. It's so easy in very rewarding to lose weight while you sleep. That's great. What a great benefit of sleep Gosh. Really. Yeah. Another side benefit I found from getting sufficient sleep is I have fewer aches and pains basically, a lack of sleep creates a cortisol response in the body which Nikki has just described. But that Cortisol response also leads to more pain and inflammation. Lack of sleep can also lead to brain fog and La lost focus. So we really are out of sorts when we don't and as Nikki mentioned, she sees a lot of people with five and six hours I. I always think for two sixes is kind of what I see a lot of also so can't even is the same, but it's I actually used to be in that place. So I totally understand that, but we need to turn that around the so important I can relate I'm an emotional mess when I don't get enough sleep. Through the roof, so I'm sure anxiety sufferers out there can understand that right sufficient sleep is critical for good mental health and is especially important after head injury. Right after my concussion, I had several weeks that I slept only two to four hours per night. It was awful. It was. Probably one of the worst times in my life I know that my injuries had a difficult time healing during that time. In fact, many of my symptoms got worse if you can imagine. I am so truly grateful for finding nutritionally in wellness when I did. That's great. Glad you did. And I mentioned that we had asked listeners for questions. So here's a question from gail she said I have no trouble falling asleep but then for a couple of hours, and then I constantly wake up off and on the rest of the night. So she's only sleeping a few hours sound I generally go to sleep quickly but never stay asleep. So what are some possible reasons for waking up several times a night? There are many reasons. For Waking up throughout the night that are possible. First Gail may need a healthy snack before bed a snack that has a small amount of carbohydrates such as a half of an apple and some natural beneficial fat like two tablespoons of natural peanut butter or almond butter will help balance gaels blood sugar. All through the night so he is not waking up. When our blood sugar goes too low during sleep our brain alerts us to possible danger and we wake up. So that low blood sugar is one of the most stressful things we can do to the brain and the body we need to be sure are blood sugar is balanced. So that's a big part of our food plan is to balance our blood sugar. So as I'm looking at the clock, it is time for our first break. You are listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness. Our topic today is stress, sleep problems and weight gain. Many studies suggest that lack of sleep is a leading cause of weight gain. Today we hope to answer your sleep questions. Each product we will be discussing today during our show is available with free shipping to you for all online orders, weight and wellness dot com for orders that are called in we will have your order available for curbside pickup at one of your locations, one of our look offices, but at your the location you choose. We will be right back. Dishing up nutrition I'm Nikki Doreen a registered and licensed Dietitian and I'm still in studio today with Joanne rideout. Who is a registered was also registered and licensed physician for many this is a very stressful time and because of the constant on-going stress, our bodies seemed to buffer that stress by putting it around on our middle section. It seems liquor sales. Are Up and we can't seem to resist all those sweet treats. Many of us are. Needing ongoing support to practice the nutrition that helps us feel good. I have some ideas that. That will help you stay on track and I will share those with you when we return from our second break Yup coming up soon. So. Before we went to break and I just want to recap a little we were talking about one of the possible reasons for waking up in the night is possibly a low blood sugar. And when blood sugar goes to low, our brain alerts us that were in possible danger. We wake up that low blecher is one of the most stressful things we can do to our brain and to our body. So we need our blood sugar balanced. I agree. I Agree Joanne one hundred percents. A nighttime snack has helped many of my clients get a good night's rest and I absolutely love my nighttime snack. That's my one of my favorite times of the day slow. Yeah. Another reason people wake up during the night is the side effects of caffeine in coffee tea sodas or any energy drinks. A little known fact is caffeine in coffee or tea has a half-life affect and can impact our sleep for up to twenty one hours. So amazing, that's a long time twenty one hours. Basically. For many people by the time they are having their next morning cup. They haven't even cleared yesterday's caffeine out of their bodies. That's hard to wrap my head around. Yeah. I. Know I was amazed when I first learned that yeah. If you have several throughout the day especially into the afternoon. Yeah. Caffeine still with you. I learned about the effects of caffeine on sleep from Dr Matthew Walker's book why we sleep. We reviewed his book on a podcast. On, one of our nutrition podcasts on May fourteenth in two thousand eighteen. You can listen to that. PODCAST to learn more information about his book if you'd like Yes, and that is a great book. I was amazed to learn that what you just said the twenty one hours before it even starts to clear and twenty four hours. It's obviously not cleared yet. So you still have that effect when you're having your next morning coffee. Amazing. I was so amazed to learn how many hours that takes and. Really could relate to how it was affecting me. I know in very caffeine sensitive so that one hit home. One more reason for GAELS poor sleep. Another reason is possible. She's deficient in minerals in the mineral magnesium. So doctors estimate that about eighty ninety percent of Americans are magnesium deficient. And that sounds like a lot. It sounds like kind of a stretch but some of you may be wondering what are some of those signs of magnesium deficiency? So poor sleep is a big one. Also. Of people have muscle cramps restless legs syndrome is so common. Yes. Also I used to have a Lotta eye twitching when my Was Low be I didn't even realize it. Also people have increased anxiety. They may have low bone density. Magnesium also helps her bones just like calcium does. Chocolate cravings. and the list goes on and on. So we generally recommend supplementing with four to six tablets of magnesium glysophate at bedtime, and we choose magnesium glycemic eight. It's the form that absorbs the best and is very effective. And Magnesium is a mineral used in more than three hundred biochemical functions in the human body. Magnesium is really amazing I. It is. It's. It's a must have in my book I. Agree. Now Gail did not share her age but gail may be having a hormonal connection to poor sleep. That might be. something. That's kind of a what wakes people up this morning right as women move into peri menopause or menopause their bodies are no longer ovulating and the production production of the critical hormone progesterone is drastically reduced on top of the reduction. On top of the reduction of progesterone, many women have an excess of artificial estrogens, toxic estrogens actually This is important because progesterone is the calming hormone that helps us sleep through the night So progesterone is really key and it's not just peri menopause menopause either, right. If you feel your sleep issue is hormonal I highly recommend making an appointment with one of our nutritious nutritious. So we can help in we in help you. Yes. Yeah. We talk about her just thrown lot and the estrogen dominance about the hormone balance that helps so much with sleep So before this Kovin nineteen outbreak, we were able to teach the menopause survival seminar in a classroom setting, and we explain this hormonal imbalance in great detail when women no longer have progesterone. Most women have sufficient or more accurately an abundance of estrogen and often the toxic estrogens because other organs such as the adrenal glands. Take over the production of estrogen but unfortunately, there is nothing to take over the production of progesterone. So if you are experiencing night sweats or more anxiety or trouble staying asleep if you said Yes to any of those questions, we recommend that you apply one quarter to one half teaspoon of natural progesterone cream to your hands, your face, the INS or the inside of your wrist. Some people put on their neck on the throat area. We liked the brand progessed which has been successfully used for over sixty years. This is the brand of progesterone cream recommended by Dr Christiaan Northrop in her book the wisdom of Menopause we really use that book a lot. Yes I've heard it mentioned many many times. That may have been a long answer for Gail but we hope it will answer some questions other listeners may have. I want to add one more bit of information about hormones. Most birth control pills stop ovulation so many women taking birth control medications become very deficient in progesterone and have more anxiety in trouble sleeping. I know I've lived that yeah. More anxiety trouble sleeping. Birth control for years yeah, Yeah I've lived that too for other reasons but definitely, yes. Yeah. Definitely lived at our environment is so full of estrogens that probably everyone is living that yeah I would say these days I think I think you're right. I mean I. It's just so interesting. It really is. Now, we're going to take a question from A. She said my issue is getting back to sleep. Once it's been interrupted. Well, amy here's a little trick. I use when Max my wonderful son wakes me off in the middle of the night I slept one or two milligrams of Melatonin under my. Tongue and within ten to fifteen minutes, I, am back to sleep. That's really critical. If you know of your Melatonin is working if you're able to fall back to sleep or get to sleep in ten to fifteen minutes twenty minutes. Source. Natural. has a very effective sub lingual. On which we carry it nutritional weight and wellness. That's right. I actually do that trick to I. Had to do that last night because I was awoken by some noise and that sub lingual MELATONIN source means dissolves under your tongue. That means your body's going to absorb more quickly, your brain's going to get it more quickly. So it goes to the brain faster. If you swallow it, it goes to your gut, and especially, if you have some good issues, it might take longer before that will start to work. You're dishing listening to dishing up nutrition one we are living through stress many of us gain weight especially around the middle. Because stress causes our during glands to produce more the hormone. Cortisol, we will be right back. To back the dishing up nutrition I mentioned earlier in the show that I have some ideas on how to get support to help you stay on track with your healthy eating plan even with social distancing and while I'm here wearing a mask. So new normal, right Those masks. Of, course, my first idea is to listen to dishing up nutrition weekly either on the radio or through our podcast. Basically, all the research tips and tricks we share or it's we have so much research and tips and tricks, and then it's also free. Yeah Bonus. Yes. Bonus. The second idea is to take an online weight and wellness class in regards to today's topic to classes come to mind five steps to better metabolism and the other class would be getting a good night's sleep. Both classes would be great choices and we have many others you would enjoy. All of these one hour classes are on sale during the month of August. These classes are only ten dollars. So regularly priced twenty five down to ten dollars. That's a great option and a great deal I love those classes Sarah. Of them, they really even taught a few. So that's some really great. Lastly an even better option is to take our nutrition for weight loss twelve week zoom series. This life changing series is every Thursday evening for twelve weeks and starts on August thirteenth. So that's coming up. It's August I. Yes. We also offer our nutrition for weight loss twelve weeks zoom series on Wednesdays at noon starting August. Plus all new nutrition for weight loss participants receive two visits with a nutritionist and during the month of August, you'll receive a bonus visit with a nutritionist. So that's three visits instead of two. That's a great value. It really is It's an it's a great value a valued at one, hundred, ten dollars. So that's really good. If you want more information, please call six, five, one, six, nine, nine, three, four, three, eight to ask questions you may have. or you can read about our weight and wellness classes and our nutrition for weight loss twelve weeks zoom series online at weight and wellness dot com. And we have one other option for you. I want to tell you about. Our online nutrition for weight loss series that you can start any day at any time that is convenient for you in the comfort of your own home. I'm meeting with so many clients now that have taken advantage of this nutrition for weight loss. They'll that we we offered earlier in the summer as well Yup, but getting in the zoom series and because they're new I always say what do you think about this zoom series are what do you think about this online series and I'm getting such good feedback from clients I am too I've been seen quite a few. I love. Seeing those nutrition for weight loss clients just love it and the series is going really well, and it's really nice to have that third appointment. Really get a little more information from with nutritionists and you know can ask questions and have just a little more time more. Consultation, definitely, those are going very well excuse me. Before break we. Were talking about cortisol again because kind of back to that topic but it's such an important piece to know we gain weight around our middle because. Stress Causes Our adrenal glands to produce more of that hormone cholesterol and sad but true excess cortisol leads to body fat is very true So to control that stress, we suggest eating balanced small meals frequently five or six times a day or at least four times a day minimally and getting eight to nine hours of peaceful sleep that will help your cortisol just stay away and that's important. So Important Yup and we have another question from Winnie today she said I don't ever sleep through the night I feel like my brain is always going. I take magnesium glides nate but not daily. sometimes, it helps other times. It doesn't. So how can I get a better night's sleep? That is a great question when he And one that I can relate to. Also, I find many clients get caught in a vicious cycle. They can't calm their brain so they're unable to get a full seven and a half to. Sleep the next day that leaves them tired anxious, irritable, and oftentimes are more hungry. Definitely a connection and then they think the most logical solution just to get through the day I've done this before is to drink more coffee to stay awake. However, we know the downside of coffee. It stays with us more than twenty, four, twenty, one to twenty, four hours and caffeine is a stimulant. It causes the release of Adrenalin from the ADRENAL glands. That puts your body into a fighter flight mode. Now, your heart is racing blood pressure is rising your muscles are tightening up. They are extremely tired but wired. That is awful. Feeling Caffeine gives you a temporary boost. But when it wears off, you feel very fatigued and even depressed. So you drink more coffee you feel jumpy irritable can't focus or even sleep for many of you. You can relate to this. The first step to getting to sleep is to break your love affair with coffee and focus on foods and supplements to calm your brain. I have come to accept the fact that I'm very caffeine sensitive. So I have to put a limit on my caffeine intake because I hate having a busy worried brain all night. My limit is one eight Ounce Cup of coffee with cream or coconut milk. Each day I never drink coffee after ten. Am even when I'm on vacation I know it's going to affect my sleep in how I feel the next day. Yes and so I have to stop. Yeah. If you're on vacation you WANNA sleep. Good. That's what I go there for. Exactly. Well Joanne. Completely relate I drink a lot of caffeine in the form of Ood Confession Time Mountain dew as a teenager. Oh. We all had bad habits in the past. I also was a person who woke up seven to fifteen times a night. Regularly. While I don't remember not doing that until I finally got a good night's rest. I'm very sensitive to caffeine as well. To this day I don't drink more than one cup of tea daily. So I know I can get a good night's rest. I can't even drink coffee. It's that's how sensitive I am while I can just do the tea which I love. But yes. Wow that's a great story and I'm sure many listeners can relate. I can relate I think coffee is is very special in many people's lives and I feel mad beating up on it sometimes but sometimes we do when it comes to sleep. It's important well in some people can do it just fine. Not everybody everybody's different everybody is different. Okay back to win he's question remember she said that she feels like her brain has always going You Ha- you may have an aunt or a mother or maybe it's even you. Perhaps that worries recycle sites all night long. That is often an indication that you have a deficiency in your calming neurotransmitters. Listeners how'd you eat to support all of your brain chemicals and neurotransmitters? It's kind of a loaded question. anti-depressants and sleep medications do not increase the level of neurotransmitters in our body. They just hold the brain chemicals in the synapse. The space between brain cells. I that's I mean that's I'm just going to review that because in low important and kind of in you know ray NC I guess it is antidepressants and sleep medications do not increase the level of neurotransmitters in our bodies they just hold the. They just hold the brain chemicals in that synapse space, which is that space between brain cells. This happened so you can make better use of the level of nurture neurotransmitters you have Joanne. How do we build up our own brain calming brain chemicals because medications just don't seem to be the best answer right and I find people that start on medications all the they might get to the point where maybe they need more and more. Or they need to keep switching medications to find one that works. So I was. Yeah both after my concussion. And Antidepressants gnome I've I've lived this? Yes. Yes. Yes and we don't. WanNa keep going higher and higher. We want to find a better answer. So part of this definitely does all go back to the food you eat. A diet that. Actually we're ready for break now. So I am going to. Come to come back to this neurotransmitter question at the end you are listening to dishing up nutrition next week. Melanie and Jennifer, will share their own personal understanding of the gut brain connection. It is fascinating to learn Howard gut affects our thinking and behavior. Since the start of Covid nineteen, we have found more and more people are interested in supporting their own health and have made the decision to eat better to support their health and immune function. Even several insurance companies and I. Think we. Were getting more. Yes. That are kind of our. We have more insurance than we used to DEF definitely are realizing. So those insurance companies are realizing the cost effectiveness and value of nutrition counseling in helping to keep their customers healthy or healthier. So this is why nutrition counseling has been an become an approved benefit for a number of health insurance companies and even on zoom they're. Allowing that. Hey yes, and I think that deserves a round of applause. If you need help determining whether your health insurance benefits include coverage for nutrition counseling, we will help you help you walk through that process to find the your benefits to find an answer. So call us at six, five, one, six, nine, nine, three, four, three, eight, and we can help you navigate that insurance. We will be right back. Welcome back to dishing up nutrition. Here's a quick recap to help you stay on track in relation to minimizing your stress, your sleep problems, your weight gain, and so much more. Listening to listening to dishing up nutrition every week on the radio or download a podcast from our dishing up nutrition APP. Or from our website at weight and wellness dot com, you can also take an individual online nutrition class. such as getting a good night's sleep. Good food's good moods. Five steps to boost metabolism. The magic of minerals and more remember these classes are on sale during the month of August for only ten dollars. Maybe, you can take a twelve week nutrition for weight loss series either online or through zoom. Don't forget. You also get that bonus nutrition visits with those classes. That's great. So awesome. Or schedule an appointment or is. or zoom appointment a phone appointment or resume appointment with one of our nutritionists or Dietitians. Again these are stressful times we live in, and sometimes we just need someone to give us an idea of what to Cook for dinner how to stop heartburn. That's a huge one right. Now it is or what to substitute to make a meal tasty without adding gluten or dairy at nutritional weight and wellness. We do it all just tell us you need right. So before break we were I asked two question and I'm GonNa we ask it so we can just bring bring it right back. Yep. Joanne. How do we build up our own calming brain chemicals before because medications just don't seem like they're the best answer? No No, and we know in all of us listeners have heard this before but it does go back to the food. You eat lots of times come and talk about supplements and what can I eat what supplement can I take and those very helpful but the food is most important I. The food has to be right for the supplements to work, and I was like to say that again, and again because we really need to get focused on the food I, saw a diet that includes a serving of meat or fish. Along, with two to three cups of vegetables and at least a tablespoon of good beneficial fat at least four times a day, some people need to eat five or six times a day. That's something we help you individualize in our appointments is kind of figuring out what works best for you. Yes. So we eating four times a day to six times a day that provides the building blocks for all of our neurotransmitters that protein the good. The good probiotics we take that helps make our calming brain neurotransmitters and there are two major neuro transmitters or brain chemicals that support restful sleep and good moods. Typically when people have a sufficient level of Serotonin, their worry and recycling of thoughts decrease. And eventually the worry and thoughts are more controllable and I like to call this brain chatter because that's how it feels on the night I've been in that place before So I've I've seen that personally myself after my concussion and actually to during this covid nineteen pandemic religion through it was definitely more brain chatter I love that brain chatter. and many of my clients are dealing with this as well. If. Any of you feel like Winnie who said her brain is always going we suggest a very simple diet of eggs meter, fish cottage cheese, a variety of vegetables and a tablespoon of natural fat at least four times a day and like Joanne said, it may be five it may even be six. Times a day. One of those meals or snacks could be a blended protein shake made with full fat yogurts coconut milk way protein, and frozen fruit. So yummy. That sounds so good. Yes. I had this morning I did too. I love those protein shakes and they're great for these. Early days where we have to get up super early for the radio and it's already to go when I when I get up in the morning. That's right. Exactly. So we also suggest adding the supplement five ht P to help support our serotonin production. I take between two and four or five. ATP At bedtime to stop the brain chatter. Sometimes I take a couple and sometimes in the middle of the night, I may take a couple. If I need it I also take a supplement called gabba which helps to support our calming neuro. Transmitters. I have a very busy life I know I need at least seven and a half to eight hours of sleep most nights. I also consistently take at least four, hundred to six hundred and most of the time it's six hundred up of magnesium glycemic. Also, a couple of capsules of calcium to help calm and relax the muscles in my back and legs just I've kind of. I know it sounds like a lot of pills, but I will do anything to sleep. So I, I've gradually experimented with the supplements to find what works, and sometimes we have to change that up to Yep I. Do the same thing as well changing things up to listen to my body. That's exactly what we're doing is listening to her body and what her body needs. Exactly. I agree magnesium and calcium and five HP have helped many of my clients get better sleep. So everything you just said is wonderful right? I also think it's important to schedule enough time ensure a good seven and a half to nine hours of sleep total per nights. If you feel. If. You feel you schedule eight hours of sleep per night and then wake up several times. You're not scheduling enough time because remember those times are awake times they're not that solid eight hours. So maybe you need to schedule nine hours of sleep right? This amount of sleep your this is the amount of sleep your body needs to heal, and that is so important. I tell my clients that almost every appointment if anyone clients are listening to their public there, she goes with that sleep. So this is a great transition into our next listener's concerns, right Kimberly and several other listeners sent emails that said body of stiffness inflammation and pain disturbs their sleep because there are so many reasons for pain and inflammation. We really think it's better for those of you who are experiencing these types of sleep disturbances to make an appointment with one of the Dietitians or nutritionists here at nutritional weight and wellness. where, we can really zero in specifically on the cause of your stiffness inflammation and pain right and that can be such a vicious cycle. You know if you've got pain and you're not sleeping but then you you know many of us experienced that pain and I've come to realize for my pain that if I eat any gluten grains or if I had sh have sugar or any kind of alcohol, which I rarely do now I will have a lot of pain and frankly those sugary treats or other treats just aren't worth it to me. So. We have covered a number of tips to help you get a good night's sleep and I'd like to review those. We encourage you as Nikki said to schedule eight to nine hours of sleep and follow a consistent schedule that really helps your body know when it is time to sleep. We talked about eating a balanced bedtime snack like berries and cream or half an apple and peanut butter to keep your blood sugar stable. Also we talked about eliminating caffeine or greatly reduce it to just a cup a day. And many people need to eliminate alcohol too. So. Yes. I agree with all those I have another tip to share I am very light sensitive since concussion. So when the sun comes up I wake up. I Find Blackout curtains or even a mask I. Wear a mask to an eye mask not a phase mouth man. and that helps me really sleep. If you find yourself waking up with the sun, try making your room as dark as possible. Anything is we're trying to get some really good sleep. That's right in a couple other tips just turn off the TV computer phone about an hour before bed that blue light. can keep you awake and so. We know we were not able to get to all of our questions in this hour, but we hope we have given you at least some information that will help you get better sleep keep sending US questions and we will try to tackle some each week. It was fun getting to know some of our listeners on today's dishing up nutrition and I look forward to joining you all again. That's great. Great to have you here Nikki today. Thanks for having me. I'm excited our goal at nutritional weight and wellness is to help each and every person experienced better health through eating real food. It's a simple yet powerful message eating real food is life changing. Thank you for joining us today be safe and be well, thanks for listening to dishing up nutrition.

Today he's going to help you discern how much is right for you because there are other factors involved as I just loading up on a bunch of D. and he's going to tell. You what can happen when you do too much of that, and we are also going to answer a whole lot of questions that we've received from our audience via our shooting straight with Dr Louis facebook group, and if you're not a member of that, all you have to do is go there and ask for yourself to be invited in either by email or send him A. Message on facebook and he'll accept shooting be part of our community. You can also answer or ask US questions online. There's an online forum for the PODCAST. So anything we don't cover here today that you still want to know or any other topic Please reach out to us that way we try to work it all in and make it a very enjoyable show. So Dr Louis. Vitamin D seems to be the thing immune system right now can you tell us how much what the difference is and is there anything wrong which is loading up on it? You ever been just one drink away from telling people what you really think. Never. have been quite often Yeah, you know I'm GonNa talk a lot about this, and you know it's absolutely amazing facebook The shooting straight has been a good thing. There's people that follow me there that actually work for some really big. Supplement. Companies. Which is afforded US Janet and may an opportunity to do some really big things I was called salt of the Earth yesterday which I thought was funny. In longhorn Texas as well as we thought, that was even funnier. We've renamed our town from Longview to Longhorn now I I love it. I guess SOCI- eight that we owe steers and Texas I. was kind of funny Yeah. But I've got lots of and this all started about five years ago when I was on a podcast as guests from Jack, Speer Co, the survival podcast, and he is crazy crazy smart, incredibly intelligent. man he he really knows what he's talking about and he's tastes certainly blonde by giving his opinion and you need to listen to him. But I got a lot of people from being on his podcast and people would say there I'm taking five thousand or ten thousand years and you know of course I'm looking at Lamma. It's not working. But I'm taking over ten thousand I said, it's not working MO- supplements don't work. And some of them are actually very toxic to you and there's reasons for that too. I finally did the percentages on it with the help of my count it because I'm not good at percentages good Lord I skipped that class in high school probably when fishing or something and ninety three percent of what people were buying and taking not working ninety three percents your odds of getting something niche. Good. Yeah and Jack Speer Co was talking about it and again spare 'cause a really crazy smart guy. You check him out he's he's really good he. He'll tell you what to do during times of stress and trouble where I'm just good for telling you how to be healthy, which is not bad too but. And I was in Tulsa. and. He he was talking about that Nina is getting involved in his facebook group and he said, well, you ought order this book and you know it'll change your per-. Paradigm about what you think about bottom of day and I said with the books already been ordered. It's on the way coast read books all day long. And Yeah, I don't know this change paradigm I try to push it in any way but I do think what this book outlines, which this guy says take thirty thousand a day. It's like one Manana don't do that not without testing and that this is from the book. Now from Jack Sparrow one of the things that people talk about is I can't sleep dog do you have any kind of thing for sleep? Well, if you're low in Vitamin D. That can cause you to not sleep well. At date threes plays a very pivotal role in the body achieving the state needed for deep sleep and very, very important and I have people at tight. You know five, thousand, ten, thousand and some it gets them up for you need to be I think the sweet spots hundred. Seventy, five or this book says more than that, and there's no evidence of it being toxic, but there's more to that some teach you that. But when you're three levels are optimal, you your your immune system, the depth of sleep in the rest that you get there and your metabolism, your metabolism becomes primed to function more edge greatest potential. So I again, I think that needs to be done with lab I. Think it's very incredible and. You know I. I really appreciate You all listening I'm backtracking a little bit I was talking to James Down Close to Savannah Georgia the other day and he said, well, I heard you on this other podcast. And even though this other podcast has a lot of other doctors on on it some. Way The more famous than me because they wrote a book are some crises stupid stuff like that and he said, but I had to listen to you and safety were the real deal. Not Listen to ten hours of your podcast. US will apparently you need something for stress and one thing I wanna tell you about stress during his times. Wearing. Some stupid crazy times I can't believe the people that jump into this stupidity and allow themselves to get all bent out of shape. Easy. Relaxes better than alcohol this easy relaxed. I. Finally opened up a bottle and said, you know chance looking at me like where the hell are you? Waiting to hear more about vitamin D getting their. Always. Real me back in easy relaxes really really good to help with that deep sleep because it has all kinds of things in it to make the neurotransmitters. Because I said, D. three optimal levels helps you get in that deep restorative sleep stay. So try easy relax or just straight gob can't work real well. As we're beginning to optimize your bottom day because it takes time some of the things that vitamin D three helps and has not the D. to some doctors will give you at fifty thousand a dose, which is not very absorbable. Restless Legs Syndrome. The deep restorative sleep. waking up full of energy helps actually to eliminate snoring and is like, wow, that when I read that it's like, yeah. Okay. Maybe that's why you snore now pretty much done in Janet doesn't much. Helps Allergies Yeah. Because the immune system stimulation helps eliminate influence. I read a a some research though the day the setup he gets over seventy your day three levels. you pretty much can't get covid. Yeah. We can't make any recommendations about supplements in Kobe but what if your immune system was allowed to do what it's meant to do and it's not a conspiracy theory that you think you have an immune system because God gave it to you. It really helps correct autism spectrum disorder. And I've talked about that before because autistic kids have the lowest levels about them and we're all low but they had very very, very low. and women with very low vitamin D. Are. Much. Much more likely to have kids that are autistic because vitamin D has to do with detoxification. it can slow down in some cases actually eliminate deal. and. That's pretty complicated studying. Alzheimer's. some even say it prevents lyme disease and other viral diseases and I think that just because it boost your immune system enough that your body can take care of the. Little buggers come in when the take bite you. there's all kinds of studies about D. and cancer either in prevention or treatment again, that shouldn't be the only thing you try, and that's that's the problem with list. Is People will well I've got cancer just do vitamin D none. Now you gotta go to a cancer specialist that understands the benefit of nutritional products and how that can help your body. fight off, it really helps restore body weight and. I'm five, ten, five, eleven one, hundred, eighty, two pounds so. And I'm. Trying to be nice. But there's a group of people that are very, very, very close to me and I'm the only one taking bottom day and I'm only one not one hundred pounds overweight and that's nice as I can put that it helps block excessive fat absorption boost your metabolism twenty or thirty percent. That's why I'm sixty five and feel thirty five because I take the holy heck out of my own products, it helps boost muscle strength thirty to forty percent. So when I tell Janet No, I'm too old to pick you. I'm just lying I'll. I'll tell you through the threshold again if you'd like through it, it's probably really close. The don't bumper head I got through. Boost energy level. But now again don't just get all excited about this list and vitamin D because there's so many other things that'll boost your energy level. It slows aging because Janet Several Times I. said I'm way too young for her whale I have to work at it and I have a lot of stuff and God only knows what she puts a drink. I don't have a clue. It helps fight out different bacterial infections like MSI and I. think that's one of the reasons I didn't have it when I got to spider bite years ago and they they said, look everybody lasts fifty people had 'em essay why don't you have it? Well as on vitamin D and an olive leaf, and they couldn't understand swab the spider by swab, my nose and they said, we don't understand why you don't have in. They even sent other sergeants in check me. It helps with diabetes or the metabolic. Syndrome. That leads up to diabetes and all kinds of things but. there's there's a lot of resistance to the so-called parameters they reverence range, which is thirty, two, one, hundred. 's up your doctor says, yeah, you're okay because you're thirty two is like Oh good Lord that's not even close. That's like saying, well, I've got an eighth of a tank of gas but I'm going on vacation you want to fill it up you know get close. To a hundred and I've read plenty research says bottom -Oday done get toxic till hits around one forty to one fifty and then there's other research says it's not even toxic at three hundred. I've seen a few people come in where they had their levels at two hundred nine tell them to back off because you know I'm not the research scientist but I think five hundreds of sweet spot I really do. Well, I want you to go back to you know why I think part of this book was written about taking high amounts of Vitamin D. I personally think it's because of what they're selling over the counter in this doors. It's not gonNA absorb very well. So Is there any you know for for us? You know with what we sell here Dr Lewis has required to have an active license to actually purchase these products that we we sell to you guys, which means, I think they're not doing that and your health food store. I don't know anyone in there that has an active license of any sort to do that So if you're going to a health food store, you probably do WanNa. Take a higher amount because it isn't going to absorb as well where for us when we look at lab and we give you that product, it's going to absorb a lot better because it's actually Pharmaceutical strength. That's it's like practicing green medicine and the other part of that is you know one thing that really gets overlooked when you're taking vitamin. D Is. The is the carrier that it needs to get in, which is K- correct which I wanted Dr Lewis to talk a little bit about K. because k. just to put it where you can kind of understand it. You know people are always worried about their calcium levels and they take d to help the calcium hard calcium on your lab is not a good thing folks that just means it's out in your bloodstream that don't mean you're using it. In your bone necessarily right. But calcium is kind of like. Hotel guest that comes to the door will vitamin D is the one that actually opens the door for calcium to come into the lobby of the hotel. But once calcium gets in the lobby he doesn't know where to go. So K. Vitamin K. is the bellhop that actually comes down and picks up calcium and takes it to the room. It shows it where to go. So can you know poor? Okay. Gets overlooked is just a little leper over there. Can You? You tell us a little bit about the benefits of Putin K with the. Oil. Yeah briefly. Very careful and there's different kinds of cave you you have to be careful if your own blood thinning drugs don't go there. the thing about it is you really pretty much will never never never see symptoms of vitamin D toxicity. which can cause inappropriate calcification. If you take K to. That's simple as I can put it. It protects you against toxicity and one thing people really don't understand they come in and say, well, my doctor says take calcium from bones. No, no, no, no, no no. No you don't understand but in order to get it really you need magnesium probably more than calcium and you don't underst- most people don't understand your bones fifty percent protein. You've gotTa have. If you have a bottom of d deficiency. You will not have optimal amounts of magnesium and you've heard me talk about everybody's deficient in magnesium because you just can't get it out of the soil even people that are taking magnesium don't necessarily have. The red blood cells spun down magnesium test on a high level. So they all worked together. So don't just get all hyped up on one thing please that's not a smart way to do it. For. All the people that come in say over the age of thirty or so or the ones we see their lab work we generally always put them on the d three plus qe two because it's a lot more absorbable taking straight vitamin. D Five, thousand, we have vitamin D one, thousand. That's for you know kids or are mostly kids or people that just don't know any different to take more vitamin D people at won't, a quarter tank of gas. Station they don't want to do the whole thing, and then we have the the vitamin D five thousand and we have the Vitamin Mindy plus are they d three? Days Three plus K that what it's called. Three K to ultra. Okay. Well, and as the men Monique Linen is accented. Manipulative and seventy M K seven, which is what makes that one well, folks it's a good step. It's not just Oh, let's go put some K in there. So yeah. You on. The other thing is you know vitamin D improves absorption of magnesium and magnesium courses good for Metabolic Syndrome making insulin dotted under, and there's at least three hundred different enzymes. magnesium works own brain function so they can help with depression anxiety all. But if you get too many too much bottom idiot actually can deplete magnesium. So it's a balance and I tell you don't get on the Internet you know just Mike in Educated, fool? I'm not saying it personally, but Okay. EDUCATED IDIOT People get a little bit of information they run with it nestling new. Please you gotta get the big picture I don't even treat myself. So. Yeah. The the Kato's very, very Incredibly important. What else you won't talk about. new their thing with vitamin. D also huge for rebuilding lung tissue. Which is why they say that it may be good for respiratory illnesses. So. Keep that in. Mind Harles I want to make sure that we answer some of these questions because these people have been very patiently waiting for for their question and. I. Don't know I don't know if they've been patient neither but they've been kind enough to wait So we're going to start with some of these and we'll let you get back to them and do we have time for that still because all talk about Dr Dominic. Who Dr? Gum Neck, WHO's Dr? Dominic. She's famous I'll get back to her oh okay. All right. We'll have to remember that. All right. Connie is having issues with swelling and her right hand and fingers mostly your index finger. Pain in her feet and ankles. When she wakes up, she's thinking she needs something for joint pain issues. And she getting ready to put an order. You know we didn't get to this question real fast I. Don't know if she went ahead and ordered or not. But what supplement would you recommend for joint pain? So, if he won't a quicker answer might be just call me Connie. You know we have the joint Max, which is really good. There's you know the conjoined glucose and it helps the salvation halfway through the liver and we have joint support formula. Yeah. That people are allergic to shellfish than they can do the joint. Max, which is the other one that's not got shellfish in it. you know you you have to watch the swelling because there's all kinds of potential medical conditions. You know if it's a big deal especially at first the difference in temperature or pulse of strength, you know you probably need to see your md because there's possibility of having a clot there although we have things that are clot busters like the good vitamin E. and Natto Connie's that can help the bombing or Corsican Bramalea. can help with that to some. Good answer. All Right Andrew has a question and Andrea would like to thank your wife care for checking on us during the hurricane. She was kind enough to reach out to us on an email and ask if we were doing okay and offered her home to us to come up to It never got that close to us. We're very grateful. Is About thirty miles from? Yes. Yeah, but that was very sweet. Andrew that your wife would Ask about us. We know she's brilliant Koshi married you. Here's question is as an adult what shots or boosters if any are important to get I question just about everything and do my own research. My wife went to the doctor and they were pushing her to get a tetanus booster and hepatitis A. my default answer almost is always no. Of course she wanted to know why I said I why I said I would say, no I always thought you got a tetanus shot when you got to deep puncture wound. So what are your thoughts on boosters which ones are important to get in your opinion? I don't get involved in that debate there. There's been some really wonderful incredibly brilliant doctors that had to practice ruined by the people ahead a different opinion There's plenty of websites although they're being censored nothing like freedom of speech here in America that are antibiotics, and then there are some that are pro backs I think you should read both sides and then make your own choice. You know I wonder why they put so many. Horrible horrible toxins in the vaccines but I asked that to aphc one time and he got turned red faced and did we'll talk about it. I said, well, explain the efficacy there it but I don't give advice one way or the other side of Moscow practice. That's good. Okay. We have Richard here that has a question about bouts a of s the tea, which is super ventricular tactic Cardia. He went to a specialist. THEY WANNA put him on Beta blockers or have a surgery called ablation. Is there a way to treat as bt naturally she? He gets them one two three times a month some lasts for hours some a few minutes. Well. First of all, going to the specialist was really good thing. We have a lot of good cardiologist out there may as contractor I've seen plenty of times when they get a proper adjustment notice I say proper and notice when I say a supplemental say good because that implies there are some bad ones or half way one south there I Yeah. Go see a cardiologist is their natural ways like well, I've seen adjustments where Oh my God you know their heart started beating correctly and sometimes it's a magnesium deficiency sometimes it's A. an imbalance with the different minerals. You know sometimes, you need to take a a good multi-mineral, specially the key late once the tracks T. R. A. C. S. and because that can begin to push out some of the heavy metals that can cause these things I've seen it be much more prevalent people that are around more chemicals than average population. People itch spray pesticides, hairdresser, snail tax welders. You know they sing seem to have a lot more that, and then there's all kinds of good books at that talk about that. So do you treat it naturally? Yeah. You just want to get your body in good shape, but you wanna see the specialist first and foremost the ablation again outside Emma practice up. Or scope of practice I personally think the Cairo. is much much more effective in potentially less damaging than the radio frequency but again, talk to your cardiologists about that. I know that people that have that problem also take a metal metal supreme because it seems to help some I'm not tell you it's GonNa fix it I'm just tiny the ones that have this problem seemed to do that because I guess it's the higher dose of B twelve. Yeah with the be six and m t h F. so if you want to. Question S or go look up five m t H. F. Dash are which is five method Tetra hydrophone late reduc taste and read about that and when I take the Ethel Supreme, it makes my heart beat much much more effectively because sometimes it'll flood or if I don't do the right things. I was thought it was made as making your heart flutter L. and I didn't tell her about it. So yeah. Yeah, absolutely. So we are. I love these questions are so cool. These are not anything we would think of on our own and I didn't know they were coming. So we're going to get another one here. This one's from Janet not me Janet but a different Janet Hello. I have recently had an upper endoscopy balloon dilation swallowing issues, mild gastritis, and mild grey. Jarvis, some inflammation, and stomach and a sophist. What would you recommend? Also need to gain my weight back any suggestions? Yeah. You need to probably get into our weight Zimmer and food sensitivity test that has helped us discover many many things the food sensitivities that can create that. In the meantime you can take some in design, which is Zinc Karmazin with glutamate can you can take our gi? What's it called GI support? Yeah. Because glutamate and some other things that help heal the lining of the GI. Track. products big time, and we have several different ones that will not upset your stomach when they go into battle with the can data so. Yeah there's there's a lot that can be done. I'd start with the wheat. Zimmer. and. I want to just this isn't a question. I just love it when people have a positive response and I'm going to read it This is from Jennifer. She said I'm a Newbie here just checking in nine days of eating right sweating every day and taking my supplements Oh my God, I've lost seven pounds no detox fog and energy I'm closing down splash kingdom with the kids no problem ain't no back now. So you gotTa Love Jennifer because she gave some positive feedback, she's looking for what's right. She's getting what's right and she's inspiring others to hang in there. So thank you very much Jennifer for the for the positive positively well the. Thing is the people that get positive results for the ones that call it before it becomes true. They look for something good and the people look for crap find crap and I'm sorry I didn't clean that up. But it a you know if you're seeing a bunch of nasty negative in your lap, it's because that's what's in your spirit. You need to change your attitude because I just called a lady yesterday and she said, Oh, this is better. This is better. This is better jogging right now. She is went on and on and on. She says I'm sending half Longview to see you. It's like. Yes. We we get a lot of mostly positive people and it's like the it encourages us especially when Cara will email me and say I hope you're safe during hurricane. Yeah. We got some wonderful people. So thank you. We need the encouragement to and speaking of another wonderful person. This is Alan from Maine He's been with US forever mayors. Yes. In in he is You can tell by the way he writes he's very educated and we appreciate that you would listen to US Allen and hope we can inspire you with some answers here because he has an a question for Dr Lewis about his opinion on the annual flu shots. he understands that the influenza virus mutates regularly. So a vaccine may not prevent the current flu strain, but I'm told it lessens the effects in light of the SARS cove coverted virus. Would it be wise to get a flu shot this year to help reduce the site of storm associated with influenza in Sarb SARS in Cova Context you're speaking to a group of people who follow your advice and purchase your products what he put. Thank you, Allan. that. Being said, would you advise your clients to purchase? Products in addition to their regularly purchase supplements and order to help them resist any adverse reactions to SARS covid. Lau I'll try to do everything naturally you know I might take my fifty thousand. take the D three K. to Anna, sometimes though in the five thousand straight D-. K. exactly. What we'd recommend to help someone that good. I'll take coercion BRAMALEA immune essentials. About the the research on those. Mushroom she'd be scary not to take them. Yeah. The immune essentials their van tastic We have vira pro, which is borrowed things We have the OAS neither pro body which were doing the pro lease we have zinc. Zinc complex. we're and we're telling you do all of them were not just telling you do one thing because I have some people go. Okay which one like no, all guest you WanNa put in your tank to go from here to Montana you feel it up the vitamin. D K just like we talked about we have one called multi element buffered. See that has a whole variety of things more. Than just vitamin C that's doing really really well. So yeah combination of all of that, and I can honestly tell you that the people have been doing that that I know of have not gotten sick and we're not gonNA tell you not to take a shot because we can't do that. But that's up to you but we're just telling you that these are that can help your body naturally. So. Sadly, I can't believe this show has gone by so fast and I said more questions and I'm sure Dr Lewis. Still had more about vitamin D. so I'm going to let Dr Lewis say a little bit more about whatever it is. He'd like say something about because we never know what comes out. So can you? Can you end our show is some inspiring words or something else you'd like to say, yeah, you know if you want to read more about bottom and day you know look up stock gum gum. G. O. M. I. N. A. K., and the reason on where dimension hers because she practices over there in Tyler last. I heard. She's. A Harvard trained neurologist and she's absolutely brilliant when it comes to bottom and day. So you know she recommends taking twenty thousand a day for a long time and going to ten. But again, if you're GonNa do this vitamin D. thank you. Need need need need to have lab because you really don't want to Overdo it. Yeah I'm GonNa tell you. If your health is important to you, you'll find a way if it's not important, you'll find an excuse. One of the hardest things in the world is finding enough love. For yourself to do this. So most of my people that that follow may for years and years like, Alan. From Maine, he's Greg. most of them they do it for the love of their spouse or the love of their children are the love of their grandchildren I have to admit I'm guilty that I do it for Janet Way before I do it for me so you have to find the need behind the need. And once you kind of get on the road good health. It kind of perpetuates itself. So you know, let's get started. Have the courage to stick with it until it becomes a habit speaking of getting started and getting. To Green Wisdom Health, DOT com. There's a health survey there for. Those of you that are new to US bill at the health survey it will recommend a lab panel or Dr Lewis generally calls you himself to discuss any health issues you have. So he tries to keep it a personalized experience and We'll be here next time on the green wisdom hell show you guys have a very blessed week. Once again, our show is come to an end, but you're hoping your health is only beginning. With. You or a loved one are in need of a different outcome and are waiting for a brighter future. Take the first step and go to our website and fill out the health survey.

Currently, we're in our tenth month of this worldwide pandemic and from all reports, you know this could continue to be the situation for the next few months. Maybe the next year we just don't know some of you are living in areas are locations where the corona virus infection rates are increasing, and we know that's causing a lot of stress. Stress comes from different places and for different reasons. One example is I'm sure many of you are experiencing this or at least know someone who is it's business both old businesses new businesses they're shutting down.

Definitely and I WANNA talk about sleep problems for minute. Do you have ongoing problems either falling asleep or staying asleep? Lack of sleep, which means not getting at least seven and a half to nine hours asleep most nights can affect your coping skills engineering. Zayed's level will just continue to climb. So does that sound like you last week I promise you that car and I would come back to the studio today to dig deeper into the connection of anxiety and sleep problems, and we got some questions from listeners and we will get to the. Back last week Joann gave her email and that's right and she didn't get some questions that's going to be interesting. Now, some of you if you're tuning into dishing up nutrition for the first time, we want to just make sure we re introduce ourselves. If you are a longtime listener, I'm Karak Harper and my background I'm a certified nutrition specialists I have a master's degree in holistic health I'm licensed by the State of Minnesota I've actually been a nutritious for thirteen years. The reason that I believe I was asked to be on this show today, and maybe you're listening to it as a podcast is because I have a history of having a lot of restless nights lying awake staring at the ceiling waiting for sleep to come, and if you can relate to that, you know how stressful that is to not be able to fall asleep or more to be waking up in the middle of the night or too early in the morning and not be able to get back to sleep. So today I really WANNA share my personal and professional knowledge and successes and things that have helped me. And I am excited to be back in the studio with Joe? Today? Because we were just here last week together we were. It's good to be back here with you today car. So good morning everyone. My name is Joanne right out and I've been a registered and licensed I- Titian for a very long time many years and I am fortunate to have worked at traditional weight and wellness for the past seven and a half years I always tell people it kind of my blessing in disguise I had gotten laid off from a job and this was a great opportunity to learn a new version of nutrition from the one I used to practice and I'm loving it I spend my time working with clients individually or teaching a number of classes including are popular menopause survival seminar. So to all of the covid nineteen restrictions, all of my client appointments are done either by phone or zoom. And you heard why Kara was chosen to be on today's dishing up nutrition and some of you may be wondering why I was picked to co host this radio show and podcast about sleep and I also have firsthand knowledge of this topic both professionally and personally, and I wanted to share some sleep solutions also that have worked well for me and my clients. Yeah that's another great point sharing. We'll be sharing clients stories. Yeah. Because that's where we get a lot of our knowledge right? We do appliance. During this really trying time, it's critically important to take care of your body and to take care of your brain. At least three habits I'm sure there are more but we're GonNa talk about three habits to take care of your body and brain, and we'll kind of do like the top three that come to mind with our topic of sleep and stress. So, sleeping at least seven and a half to nine hours most nights. Eating real food and moving your body. So we want to just keep this simple and keep focus on the things you can control. There's so many things out of our control right now. But most people have some control over sleep food and movements Joanna and I wrote down some habits and I think we both really try to live by these as much as possible to manage stress and anxiety especially during this pandemic. So we'll share these habits you might WanNa be jotting these down just get a little post it. You can put it on your refrigerator she's going to be three tips. That's right. Habit number one is sleep seven and a half to nine hours most nights excuse me. To, help you restore your body. And your brain health which in turn will help you reduce your anxiety and stress. So some people say, what? How in the world am I gonNa Sleep. That many hours and you may have to schedule your sleep. You may have to go to bed earlier you may have to skip the ten o'clock news much the nine o'clock news. Or whatever your routine is allow enough time to go before. Before going to your bed bedroom area and bathroom that you've got the time to get ready for bed and then actually get into sleep still at at a decent hour for me I really shoot for ten o'clock. That's a big one. I like what you shared with me last week how you are trying to get yourself ready at about nine to get to bed for ten o'clock sleep right? Because we can't. It's almost like we can't start early enough right right we we have to realize that it takes most people thirty to sixty minutes. Are Habit number to drink eight to ten glasses of filtered water. Every day a hydrated brain will help you cope with stress and anxiety. And people that are successful with drinking water will. Just. Have a water bottle with them all the time I like to fill up my favorite water bottle in when it's empty, I actually have a checklist in fill it right back up again sometimes I'll even bring like two bottles with me wit especially with the pandemic a lot of you know drinking fountains and Are Not available. So you WANNA make sure like I've been bringing to bottles of water. And get to that eight to ten glasses per day and I just wanted to put in a plug for there are some really good water tracking. APPS and all a lot of people are using their phones for tracking know calendars food. So if you would like to track your water, you could just google. There's a lot of variety of water tracking APPs that's right and just a few days ago a client told me that whenever she wants to change a behavior, she writes it down on a little note card or maybe some people are using journal. You could write a goal in your journal or an APP that w another great way to use that. That tool and when she completes the positive behavior, she gives herself a little star. So my client was able to get off sugar by using this simple reward technique, but we were talking about water, and so every time you drink a glass of water, you can give yourself a star that's another goal you can have in process. And habit number three is eat real food several times per day. At. Least four times per day and here's a good example of a real food breakfast. I will frequently make patties and you know you can use Turkey you can use ground Turkey ground, chicken, ground pork, sometimes I use a combination of two of those mix them together. By seasoned or you can season at yourself and shape it into patties and you want to have about three to four ounces per patty. sautee some onions veggies can do any veggies, carrots, green beans sweet potatoes are some options It's a great tasting breakfast that will balance your blood sugar for several hours and it's just kind of a nice switch from always having in the morning. So that's why I wanted to bring up that breakfast patty. And you know it is time for our first break. We'll talk a little bit more about real food several times a day. When we come back, you're listening to dishing up nutrition this month at nutritional weight and wellness were offering fifteen percent off of a lot of our calcium products. Clients often take magnesium Lacina bad time to reduce leg cramps, muscle cramps, and helpless. Sleep, and that's a great recommendation. But unfortunately, calcium is often forgotten. Having sufficient calcium is really important for sleep as well and for a lot of clients I would suggest taking key Osteo plus for bone strength and for sleep in the great thing about that, it has four hundred milligrams of Magnesium Grayson eight and a thousand milligrams of calcium all in very absorbable forms. And I like it because it's measured out in packets, their their capsules, and it's super easy to take. So it's important to know that not all calcium the same though right there's a lot of poorly absorbed calcium products like the drugstores. This key Osteo plus has all the right correct forms that your body can utilize. So we will be right back. To dishing up nutrition, I want to share something with you about a very important habit for weight loss and no, it's not cutting your calories like everyone always talks about right. It is sleeping eight and a half to nine hours most nights. So try we will probably have to schedule your sleep and bedtime earlier if you are a person who wakes up early. So our bodies generally wake up with the Sun So it may take blackout curtains if you're trying to sleep longer and we actually had a question from Gina about this topic she wakes up. At. Five o'clock every day but she would like sleep 'til six. Well, maybe it has to do right now I think it's not really quite light out but you know that varies with time of Year So blackout curtains might be helpful. But the other thing Gina said is she takes to magnesium glycemic before bed and for me I know I need more than that. So maybe She could try three or four tablets. Some people need up to six. So you just have to experiment with that and sleep see if you can get a longer night's sleep but try these suggestions for just six weeks and let us know your success sleep is truly that magical potion for weight loss. That's a you know. Those are great tips and we don't know. The whole situation I it's hard when someone just has that question via email but I like your suggestion about the blackout curtains and other tip that I have blackout curtains and I also have an eye mask right? kind of has velcro and goes around my head so that if it is the time of year when the sun would wake you up and you aren't ready to get up. You might be able to sleep a little bit longer with those blackout curtains and I ask you so good suggestion. So before break Joanne and I were giving those three tips and you know sleeping seven and a half to nine hours. Drinking eight to ten losses of water, and then I had mentioned eating real food three to at least three to four times per day. Some people really do better if they're eating five or six, but it's individual. So. The important part about eating real food is in balance in that is so that we balance our blood sugar levels and how we balance our blood sugar during the day has everything to do with how well we're going to sleep at night, and it also reduces stress and anxiety. So you know I had shared I might have like a breakfast patty like a meat patty with some side table veggies and it's important to have that healthy fat as well. I can use butter olive oil for the saw -taying. butter is actually one of my. Favorites mostly because it just tastes wonderful, right? It does So another habit habit number four is limiting your sugar and process carbs in your diet to support good brain health to help you cope and to help you sleep. So courage just mentioned this. You know what you eat during the day has everything to do with how well you're going to sleep. and and calm you can be but eating an excess sugar amount is a leading cause of stress and anxiety. And I know that from personal experience I've had times where I've had too much sugar during the day or possibly during the evening and go whoa, this is gonNA affect my sleep. So reducing the amount of sugar you eat will help calm your brain to deal with these anxiety filled times. And then lead to better sleep. So I've also noticed kind of the flip of that statement and I've also noticed when I don't get enough sleep I crave sugar more so it. Sounds. Like a vicious cycle in it absolutely is because you need to get beat you need to avoid the sugar to calm your. Self enough to sleep, but you also need to get enough sleep to avoid the sugar cravings. Yeah. So it can be a tough cycle I mean some people may need to make an appointment to get absolutely that cycle, but just even just having like a good balance breakfast right is kind of the key to starting out that day. Note. The fifth thing that we the fifth habit we'd like to talk about is limits or better yet, just kind of get rid of all of the refined oils in. And that's for better brain health as well as just overall health and metabolism. So the oils that we're talking about to avoid are sweeping oil corn oil even canola oil and cottonseed oil and just switched to those real healthy oils and fats like I had talked about butter or coconut oil, avocado oil, and olive oil or other good ones. You don't the brain is made up of sixty percent fat and so the oils and fats that we consume are going to either support or hinder our brain function. And we suggest including six to seven tablespoons of these natural healing fats and that's going to just reduce stress. It's going to help with your sleep and weight loss. So we suggest put in a good habit list, good habit list on your bathroom mirror, maybe a refrigerator and your car. You want to remember these simple habits that are going to support your sleep and reduce that stress and anxiety. And if you want more good habit ideas we join and I would suggest taking a class that we have. It's called good food for good moods and you can find that on our website weight and wellness dot com yet a really good class that is a really good class. And so just changing these simple food habits that car and I have just shared will help you to manage anxiety. We'll hope you have more energy. And will help you reduce your sugar cravings and your sleep problems. And just one quick last habit that Joanna and I both practice most days as much as possible is just moving our bodies and even walking for thirty minutes or if you know if you're not currently exercising start with fifteen minutes, right? Oh. Fifteen work twenty eventually, it'd be great to do thirty minutes of walking per day or more right but every little bit counts it does and it all adds up. So I recently read that the root causes a mostly problems anxiety. Isn't that interesting? So the root cause I'm repeat that the root cause of most sleep problems is anxiety and so for good sleep, we need to manage during Zaidi and it all starts with eating real food. And it is time for break. All right. Well, you're listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness. Time of massive upheaval right now with the pandemic, the riots fires I mean now we have debates the fact that most of us are unable to spend memorable memorable times with our family and friends, and a lot of people are missing seeing their family members and their loved ones. We recommend that you do try to focus on the things that you can control with so much being out of our control. For the most part, you should be able to control the food that you eat and the amount of sleep that you get. You might need help with either one of those or maybe both of those stress relieving habits the good news is that a real food eating plan and quality sleep will support your immune system when that something that we're all concerned about right now. If you need help, we have a couple of nutritional counseling packages that are available at a reduced rate. So after break joins GONNA go over the personal wellness packets they'll go. To dishing up nutrition. I noticed a shift in people's approach to life today because of the worldwide stress. So many people are getting serious about their health. So new reports are constantly telling us that if you have preexisting health conditions, you are at higher risk for getting the COVID nineteen virus, and it could very likely have a poor outcome if you do contract it and we want to help you achieve better health in all areas. So as Kara said earlier, focus on what we can control. You can control your sleep and you can control your food and to do that, we suggest getting directions support and encouragement from a nutritional weight and wellness dietician or nutritionist. We're offering the personal wellness package that includes a two hour initial consultation and to one hour follow up consultations with the Dietitian or nutritionist. It is only three hundred fifty dollars for this life saving information and support a hundred and thirty five dollars savings. So let us help you focus on the things you can control. Right I mean some people really do need assistance putting together a plan for a food and or sleep. That's right now we had asked listeners to send in their questions or struggles with either getting to sleep or staying asleep. So we're going to start with gale's struggles. Gail said, is no trouble falling asleep I sleep for a couple of hours and then wake up constantly the rest of the night. A generally wake up and then fall asleep again quickly but I am never able to stay asleep. So I don't ever feel rested. That's a really common scenario that is a really common scenario and I WANNA. Give you my thoughts about what I call surface sleep or waking up often throughout the night gail didn't say how old she was but I did get a question that was similar from Linda who is in Her fifties and waking up often throughout the night is a common problem for women in Peri Menopause and menopause, and when women no longer ovulate they no longer produce a sufficient amount of the hormone progesterone, which is very important for sleep and progesterone also is a very calming and relaxing hormone. So it helps women sleep whether your body makes it or if you have to add progesterone through a natural progesterone creams supplement. It's both it's effective either way and when the level of the hormone progesterone is low, a common problem women experience is anxiety and poor sleep. So you just need a quarter teaspoon of this natural progesterone cream called pro progessed on your wrist or over your throat. That might be enough comfort. For sleeping through the night and sometimes I notice that if I do that, if I forget to put it on and then I, put it on in the middle of the night when I wake up, I will much more easily go back to sleep. Oh, even if I forgot I can add it. So, our menopause survival seminar explained all about the hormonal sleep problems and I'm pleased to announce that we are currently updating the menopause survival seminar. So we can offer it to you online and we hope to have the menopause seminar available to you online in mid-november. Great and we talked about that last week to how there's right five or six of you really working around lock. Series Low progesterone levels certainly happened during peri menopause and menopause, but can also happen when women are taking oral contraceptives and that's because oral contraceptives while they're doing their job, they're stopping ovulation. Often find that women who have taken oral contraceptives or birth control pills for many years have trouble sleeping and are sometimes plagued anxiety. For Women who are taking birth control and having Zaidi and sleep problems we would recommend a couple of standard supplements. One of them is magnesium glysophate. You've maybe heard Joanne mentioned that when already and an absorbable form of calcium and then also an amino acid called Gabba. But for many women using natural progesterone cream at bedtime can also be very beneficial doesn't have to be gesturing peri menopause or menopause in. So just like you said a quarter teaspoon, it's really simple natural. Cream that you can just put on your wrists or your throat area your stomach even That's right. So this next listeners struggles reminds me of myself before a change, my eating habits and they started getting more sleep kimberly had a question I have all of the sleep problems. I think the main reason is because my chronics stiffness and low grade pain my muscles get so stiff. When I stay in one position all night. So I have to shift after a few hours and I can't get comfortable to fall. Back. Asleep. I see she also said I've tried magnesium glycemic. Omega three and five ht p. but I still struggle. So Kimberly I can totally relate to you and your struggles. Before I started working at nutritional weight and wellness I had lots of aches and pains, and also that body stiffness and even to this day if I cheat even a little on my food plan, my body feels stiff and Achey, and I definitely can tell when I've had some food that isn't quite right. I. Mean a little too. It might be a couple small bites of a cookie or a half a slice of bread. Or One or two small bites of a slice of pizza. And I've discovered through the years here that I am very sensitive to both sugar and gluten. and. We know that almost all treat type foods have flour and sugar. That almost instantly inflames my body and the Aches and pains interfere with my sleep. I've also noticed a big one for me as corn. Okay. Though that's a definitely So it's going to pause painted a person it well vary. Kimberly. The magnesium glides nate and Omega. Three are good. But we always say on dishing up nutrition nutritional weight and wellness food I. So this is means it's important determine what foods are inflammatory for you, and what are you eating that's causing that pain? And sometimes people have to journal to figure that out an after you do that, you may no longer have those aches and pains as a result you will most likely be able to sleep through the night. Yeah for me. It's sugar is probably the biggest one Maria actually just I feel sore the next day. Right sugar aches. but also for gluten is another trigger for me and dairy is well, I might be able to have a little dairy, but if I have a lot right, I just I feel kind of just achey all over like I had a really. Intense. Workout. But maybe I didn't. Have that. Sore feeling everywhere. So Well Amy and page had no. These two had similar problems they both said. My issue is getting back to sleep. Once it's been interrupted. And so when my clients are unable to go right back to sleep, I typically will suggest taking sub lingual MELATONIN. And you can start with one two or three milligrams. You can work up to around five milligrams but if you haven't taken it before just maybe start with one or two milligrams and sub lingual just it means it goes under the tongue in it absorbs very quickly. And usually, people are able to go back to sleep. So there's a couple of different ways to take Melatonin. Preferably, I would say thirty minutes before bad, right. But you know if you get a similar to the progesterone cream of you wake up in the middle of the night, you can take the sibling will Melatonin then and it would still be effective for getting back to sleep. And for clients who are really light sleepers. I also recommend four hundred to six hundred milligrams of magnesium, GRAYSON eight. Also something called five ht. And the range of dosing on that is a hundred, probably a hundred the way up to four hundred milligrams of five ATP. And then Gabba, and for Gabba you know you can take anywhere from seven hundred fifty to fifteen hundred milligrams. Five HCP GABBA are both supplements that support the production of brain chemicals relaxing brain chemicals. So remember though you know. The food that we eat is really we can. We can get more calming neurotransmitters from animal protein. But taking these amino acids like five hd Gabba or just kind of extra a lot of people are low in those. That's right and before we go to break I, have one more question that I wanna ask here that a man sent in to me that was I thought was interesting my four year old has horrible growing pains that wake him up screaming at night. So she's tried tylenol and some other things but she doesn't really want to do that She wondered if magnesium would help and Izzy if is he old enough to take it? So I love magnesium I definitely would suggest giving that a try we have a form of magnesium that is called Meghna Gel So you can actually rub that on his legs and give that a try or another way to have make give mcneese implies nate to a small child would be just like the liquid version that we have one to two teaspoons of magnesium licensed instead of the tablespoon. Or Two that is more of an adult dose. So I would try both of those you. Actually could move into other minerals if you need to. But magnesium is a very good place to start an often start stops that problem and that problem can be true for adults having restless legs syndrome to yeah magnesium. Aid or the jowl those are just kind of go to's because throughout a four people are thought to be deficient in magnesium. So it's a really great place to start. Sorry you're probably of those, let's Lo. You're listening to dishing up nutrition if you want more information about any of the supplements that we've talked about today or if you have questions about our classes or the special pricing on the nutritional counseling package, you know is just a phone call away. You might even have a question about something like well, who would be the best nutritionist to work for you know work with me and my personal lead. So he give a call to our office at six, five, one, six, nine, nine, three, four, three, eight. You can also send an email and it's a really simple address. It's email at weight and wellness dot com.

So again, six by one, six, nine, three, four, three, eight, the number to our office. That's right and we will be right back. Welcome. Back to dishing up. Nutrition.

They will give suggestions to overcome some of those issues, and if you have that old belief that Dietitians and nutritionists are perfect and judgmental because they could never understand your struggles with sugar sleep or anxiety while I'm happy to say that is absolutely not true and I personally have had sleep problems, aches and pains, sugar cravings, and the list goes on and on for me, the answer was always food food food and get getting. The food, right. So I encourage you to be brave and set up a time to learn how to use food and key supplements to put your struggles into remission. It is quite possible that your health insurance may even cover the cost and never hurts to ask. So please call us at six, five, one, six, nine, nine, three, four, three, eight or email us at email at weight and wellness dot com and we will respond. Excellent? So I thought, we could do a little recap on the supplements that I was talking about before break right just because this is you know food I always however, Joanna and I. Both we're saying during break that without these additional supplements are usually just wouldn't be good right? You know we wouldn't be falling asleep or staying asleep. Right as well as we currently are. So just to recap for issues with falling asleep and staying asleep, the protocol would be taking some sub lingual MELATONIN. Two. Or three milligrams, you can always go up from there to like five milligrams four, hundred, six, hundred milligrams of magnesium glycemic. And usually or two hundred milligrams of five ht P. is sufficient. Some people will go higher and anywhere from five hundred to I'd say, fifteen hundred milligrams of Gabba. And now, Gab I just WANNA throw in a plug for Gabba, because we tout that is nature's valium. Now who doesn't want some of that, right? It's a natural it's an amino acid which we do get from eating animal protein however, you know if you're struggling with stress and anxiety and sleep the five ATP and the Gabba can really help and Joanne, we ran out of Gabba in my house last week. Wow. Is Not good because I was like, Oh, I can get to sleep and I ordered it from nutritional weight and wellness. To be they do free shipping. It's super convenient edited on the website but I tell you every morning I was like out at my friends step we wondering if the Gabba came and it only took like I think one or two business days but I was waiting for that Gabba United Sleep as well without it right I definitely need. Gabba tests help me sleep so I definitely need that too. So. We have a question from Laurie and she asked her question was I am well past menopause. So why am I experiencing night sweats and that's an interesting question. I get that question from women of all ages. But when I'm teaching the menopause, survival seminar, I find that many women have the miss misconception that menopause ends at a certain age. menopause does not. Officially, end until your life ends but I have to say generally those night sweats will will subside once you figure out what's causing them. So what could be causing those night sweats once again, we'll start with food. I. I always say when people talk to me about night sweats is like, okay. What? Where where's your sugar intake at? And how about alcohol those I think are the top two But other people might be eating maybe bagels or crackers. Pizza maybe desserts could be the root cause of the night sweats but most often when women avoid the sugar, the wine and other flour products, the night sweats will go away. And Nights. What's may also be from a medication you're taking sometimes, it could be an antidepressant. So if we look at supplements to decrease or eliminate night sweats. My first choice would be either natural progression natural gesture on cream. We talked about that earlier, just a quarter teaspoon, and then in addition to detox those excess estrogens, I suggest to clients taking two or three Astro I three C. And in addition, you may need three to four Astro re-balance as well. So night sweats are often caused from an excess of estrogen or estrogen dominance combined with a deficiency of her just wrong. Oh, in those often go hand in hand. Definitely right. So you're adding in the natural progesterone cream and you're also helping your body to get rid of and detox. The excess estrogens are the you know toxic estrogen is right all those as well. Exactly. In you know I think those are some great points as far as what to avoid. To get those night sweats and hot flashes under control and I ran into my daughter just started dance and I ran into a mom that I knew at dance and she's a she's a dishing up nutrition radio listener. So she said, Oh, what's your topic and be and? So. is she went into early menopause. Believe at age forty five and she said Oh hands down you know what keeps my hot flashes and night sweats away it's if I am not eating too much sugar avoiding alcohol and getting enough sleep right I mean. It was just kind of a nice anecdotal reminder that we're telling you I mean, this is what works for real just said Yup. And it's true as. Well here's a little bit more of a difficult issue This one that we're gonNA talk about takes a real desire and a true commitment to retrain them brain into following good sleep habits. So Carol said in her email for whatever reason I don't want to go to bed I know the routine I know what I'm supposed to do. But for some reason I'm full of energy at night and it's not from drinking too much caffeine. So. Carol. I suspect that the root cause of not wanting to go to bed is an underlying level of anxiety. And you know when you go to bed in your brain, it needs to shut down into become. And if you have underlying. It may just be kind of a distraction you know having that energy in finding one more thing to do so that you don't have to deal with laying in bed and noticing that anxiety. So this is Kinda challenging sleep problems to overcome to be honest, and this may require a regular appointments with a nutritionist or a dietician to really manage that anxiety and reduce it. It might even take a you a long time. Some people make appointments really for a year until they feel like they've established new routines and habits. And I think due to the pandemic, an increased number of people might be experiencing what Carol was talking about. and. So my goodness, we have come to the end of our show. We want to thank you for listening and our goal at nutritional weight and wellness is to help each and every person experience better health through real food. So it's a simple but powerful message eating real food is life changing. Thank you so much for listening of a safe and healthy day. Thanks for listening to dishing up nutrition.

That number again to join. In the conversation eight eight eight four seven to thirty three sixty six Carol. Let's begin with the basics if we can. What is yoga. Yoga is essentially a practice of awareness that's designed to quiet your mind and help you connect with your true self. It's got very ancient roots as Joe mentioned in the introduction from India, and it's now practiced widely all around the world. I see a lot of young people with their yoga mats in their backpacks or on their bicycles, and I think, okay, so this is a young person's thing, but that's a misconception, isn't it? That's a big misconception. There's so many misconceptions about yoga. And one of the biggest misconceptions is that yoga and posture is synonymous that somehow when people say I'm doing yoga, it means they're doing postures. And yoga is so much more than that. Pastas are just one of the elements of the yoga toolkit. They're really four main elements in the yoga toolkit their postures which is, but everyone thinks about in knows there's breathing, which is hugely important. There's meditation again, very important. And then there are principles in yoga that don't get recognized very often. And as I've I've practiced, I'm sixty four now. Now, and I've been practicing for more than forty years and throughout my yoga journey, the principles of yoga, things like contentment and gratitude and non-harming have become more and more an important part of the practice will you mentioned breathing and a lot of the listeners are going, will you? I'm breathing, everybody's breathing. If you're not breathing your dead. So what's so special about yoga breathing. Of course, if we're alive, we're breathing and is John Cabot. Sin is reported to have said, if you're breathing, there's more right with you then wrong with you. But the truth of it is many people in our culture are not breathing optimally. We're very stress related culture. We're kind of at twenty four, seven high stress world and many people breathe up in their chest. They breathe an stressful manner, and yoga breathing is connected to the diaphragm. Matic breathing that three part breath getting into a relaxation response. When I often teach classes, we start with the breath and learning how to take the breath down fully through the full part of the long so that the belly rounds with the breath that in and of itself has such an important therapeutic. Value when you learn to breathe optimally, breathing, fully slowly, easily. It affects the whole constellation of physiology lowers the heart rate releases tension from the muscles. So learning optimal breathing in and of itself. I've had students go off their hypertension medication because they've been practicing yoga breathing. Now you said something that confused me. You said three-part breathing and not breathing, I think of two parts in and out. So what's the third part? So thank you. So in the yoga practice, the three part breath talks about bringing breath into three parts of the torso. So when I teach this, I invite people to start by putting their hands on their lower belly. And of course we call it belly breathing. The air doesn't really go into the belly when the air fills the lungs diaphragm descends in it pushes out the belly. So. Feeling the movement in the belly. That's part one. Then we put our hands on our rip cage, feeling the breath in the ribs feeling the movement, the enhancement of breath in the ribcage, the ribs expand out on the inhale and then relax inn on the exile, and then we put the hands on the chest. So it's belly ribs and chest. That's the three part breath. It's also called Durga pranee on and that teaching that technique alone. I've seen it just be very, very powerful for people who say, you know, caroli- I use it to sleep. Now if I'm having trouble sleeping, I, I do the three part breath or if I'm waiting for the doctor to call back and I'm getting anxious. I do the three part breath and it can be an extremely therapeutic technique will Carol. We're going to talk in a moment with malaria in Charlottesville about the health benefits of yoga, but I'm just one. Wondering besides just relaxing, which sounds very positive, what else can yoga do for people? Well, interestingly enough, the breath cannot only be relaxing. It can also be energizing. So it's it's both two at once. So you've got the the physical aspects of the yoga practice that can stretch and strengthen your muscles. You've got the relaxing benefits of the practice, and there's a cognitive stimulation. Yoga is a very holistic discipline. So it's not just about your ads or just about your your left toenail, yoga approaches the whole self and the whole person. Eight eight, eight, four, seven to three three, six, six is our number. We go to Valeria in Charlottesville, Virginia, welcome to the people's pharmacy. Your question, please. Hello. Hi Valeria. What's up. So I am an enthusiastic road and trail runner and have done trail half marathons and several years ago developed intense right knee pain. And that prevented me from running comfortably and was very close to making an appointment with an orthopedist to explore what was going on. And instead decided to go to a yoga class and truly after the first yoga class might pain, which I think what's coming from tight hit muscles resolved by ninety five percent and never never had to visit the doctor and have been practicing yoga since. Larry, thanks so much for that. Carol. What about the idea of yoga for recuperation for recovery from injury. Can absolutely be helpful as Valeria just mentioned her experience as a runner, having that knee pain. Yoga, there affects us in so many ways, but one of the single most important things that yoga can help people do is enhance their awareness of what's going on in their body and in recovery from injury very often. There's there's so much happening yoga as a holistic discipline recognizes that physical ailments also have emotional and spiritual components. So if someone's recovering from an injury, not only are they dealing with something physical that's going on, but they're also dealing with the emotional reactions to that and the the thought processes and and yoga can help in all of these arenas. And we have an Email from Joseph in Blacksburg Virginia. He says that he's been doing yoga for fifteen years and he's nearly sixty five a says. Yoga looks like a young person's industry, but this is a situation where of exercise and meditation, where body shape bears no resemblance to one's posture balance and strength. Yoga is the yoki of mind and body. So that is what he has to say about yoga. Well, I appreciate his saying that he's absolutely right the word yoga comes from the sanskrit word, huge, which means to yoke or unite. And so what are we joking or uniting? We'll as he said that. So lovely, you're uniting the mind and the body through the breath. We're also uniting our little individual cells with that sense of something greater. So it's a very. It's a very deep practice and it's one that ages. Well. We're going to take a break in a moment, but this idea of older people learning yoga. I mean, is that really possible? I teach a gentle yoga class at Duke integrative medicine on Friday mornings, and we they're often brand new people who come in and say, might be in a wheelchair that might have a Walker. They might have been recovering from a stroke. They might be very fit and able and we if they can get in the room taken practice yoga, you're listening to Carol Krucoff a yoga therapist at Duke integrative medicine in Durham, North Carolina.

That's k. r. u. c. o. f. f. she is a yoga instructor therapist at Duke integrative medicine in Durham, North Carolina. She's co director of the yoga for seniors teaching training program and co, author of relax into yoga for seniors. Her previous book was yoga sparks. One hundred eight easy practices for stress relief in a minute or less Carol in a minute or less. How is that possible? Joe if you can breathe, you can practice yoga. And if you're doing some mindful breathing, that takes a minute and there's so many things that that are can be a part of a yoga practice that you might not even recognize. For example, if. Let someone in front of you in line. You know, they're a someone that is a yoga practice. That's a practice of a party GRA greed. Listeners of letting someone else go. I, as I was saying earlier, the principles of yoga being content, looking at what's right instead of what's wrong. These are all part of the yoga practice. So this is what I outlined in the book. So their postures breathing meditation and these little principles will. The thing that's so interesting to me is that during the course of a day, they're all kinds of little stresses and little interruptions, and you're cut off in traffic or just all some political craziness. That just happens in the idea of being able to take just a minute because we're all in such a hurry to sort of let that stress go through a yoga practice. That sounds very appealing even for people who don't wanna do poses. Absolutely. And your exam. Of getting cut off in traffic is a perfect one. Thirty years ago when I before I was this deeply into the yoga journey, if somebody cut me off in traffic, my response might be to thrust my hand out the window and make a gesture. I'm embarrassed to say, but I was young and foolish, and that might have been what I would do if somebody would cut me off in traffic today. If somebody cut me off in traffic, I might stop take a breath and send that person some loving kindness. I mean, you don't that person might be rushing to the hospital to care for a sick child. You just don't know what their story is and the effect of the difference between thrusting my hand out the window and making gesture and taking a breath and sending a prayer for loving kindness. Can you see the difference in my own physiology. That's a huge, huge difference in your reaction, which is what you have control over and who knows even if they're just thoughtless jerk. They may need living kindnesses well, and wouldn't the world be a nicer place if we were all letting other people in line and sending people loving kindness instead of road rage Carol, how did you get interested in teaching yoga for seniors. My journey to teaching yoga for seniors started in nineteen ninety nine. I enrolled in a yoga teacher training program. It was a two year, seven hundred our program. And as part of that program, we had to do some community service. We had to do twelve hours of community service and for my community service volunteer teaching yoga at the Durham VA medical center. My husband said cardiologists at Duke, and I knew some folks they are and they were very happy for me to volunteer there. And this group was called jareth. It was a gerontology rehabilitation program. So they were mostly men because they were veterans. There were some women in their sixty seventies eighties. They had had heart attacks. They had COPD diabetes. These were people dealing with some serious health challenges and I walked in, you know, as a newly minted teacher, looking at this group of older. For men and I thought, oh my God, I'm scared to death. I'm going to kill them. I can't teach these guys sun salutations. What am I going to do? So I served there calisthenics. They did as part of a did aerobics, and they did weight training in his part of that calisthenics. They got on all fours and they did something. They called hump and slump hump bend slump and the light went home. That's what they called it. I, I've got to say they were on their hands and knees and they would arch their back up that was the hump and then they would make their spine curve down that was the slump and as a yoga practitioner and newly minted yoga teach, I realize will in yoga, we call that cat cow and if they were doing that anyway, if I taught it to them, I probably wouldn't kill them. So I, I saw that many of the things they were doing in their calisthenic program were actually based on yoga practices. So I took those than I knew they were already doing and I added the breathing and I added the awareness and instead of volunteering there for twelve years for twelve. Sorry for twelve weeks. I volunteer there for five years because it was really transformative. They were so appreciative. They would come back to me and they would say my doctor says, I'm doing so well, whatever I'm doing. I I, I should keep it up and it was. It was really amazing. And one of the things that I discovered in teaching veterans was that it's not just what you do in yoga. It's how you do it that really matters. And because these guys were were soldiers, they soldiers athletes in our culture, tend to disconnect their mind in their body. They have to, you would never break a block in in in karate. If you're really thinking about how it might hurt, you really have to kind of disconnect. It's do a marathon. You really have to just sort of not disconnect to a certain extent. So some of these guys really didn't know how they felt and I look at someone who would be red in the face doing oppose nights. Are you? Are you okay? Yes, ma'am. They had no clue. So teaching them how to challenge themselves, but not to strain teaching themselves to back off a little. That was huge. Oh, that's great. We go to the phones in Binghamton New York. Virginia would like to tell us about practicing yoga as an older adult, Virginia, please tell us your story. Hi, Virginia. Go ahead. Hi, thanks for your living finest. All about. For too much. She started technically what she was four now. You say ninety nine? Yes, she's the world's oldest living yoga. There. Well, I, I have to tell you we don't have a very good line Virginia, but it sounds pretty extrordinary a ninety nine year old yoga instructor. Carol. Krucoff I I've seen this person on on the internet. I think she's her name is Tara port Portuondo. She seems to be a very lovely woman and yes, you can have yoga instructors of of any of any age. Wonderful. Let's go to line one Terry, Christina in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Hi, Christina. You're on the people's pharmacy. What's up. Good morning. What's what's your story, Christina? I just wanted to express my preseason for the show this morning. I am a yoga instructor down here in Saint Petersburg, and I'm thirty four now. And I've been practicing probably since I was about fourteen and I just you always wanna share things you love. And yoga has always been one of those things that create brings awareness to us. I was awareness to our body, especially, but our mind and heart even more. And I think the more people develop a yoga practice or introduced to yoga. They just start to see a change in them that. You're becoming more aware of maybe better ways to live your life, making better decisions. And like you said, carols through the principles, the Yamazaki and the neon the almost finding the good versus finding all the bad, you just become a better person. Christina much for the call. It almost sounds too good to be true karaoke Krucoff. Well, it. It's very interesting as yoga has become so popular in our culture. It, it's it. I don't want to overstate the benefits. It's a, it's, it's, it's something people need to find for themselves. So it's. It is. It is a transformative practice and it changes to a my my practice now at sixty four is very different than it was in my twenties. My twenties was a much more athletic practice. If I didn't sweat during my practice it, it just didn't feel right. I used to stand on my head. I used to do lots of twisty, pretzel poses, and at sixty four, having dealt with various health issues, I no longer stand on my head. I no longer do end range rotation because I do have low bone density. So my physical posture practice has changed, but I still have a very vigorous practice. I still feel like I'm keeping myself in in very good physical shape from the practice, but also in my meditation practice and my taking the yoga off the map. That is what has really blossomed in this last decade of my life because we put ourselves in challenging postures on the mat. We do these kind of interesting physical movements and and then we're in these these interesting positions, and then the challenge is to breathe and relaxed. A find that place where you're challenging yourself, not straining to notice what's here to notice what emotions might arise. You just tried to balance in you and you and you couldn't. So what does that do to your emotional heart? What's happ so noticing all that you do that on the mat, then you roll up your mat and ideally, Hugh take all those lessons out into the world. And that's to me the magic of yoga, because what we learn on that about how we approach the challenges of the posture practice can inform how we deal with the challenges that we face. Face in our daily life. Carol, we understand that some people use yoga to prepare for surgery. How does that work? Well, I certainly did. I had open heart surgery in January. It'll be eleven years ago. I was born with a by custody a Arctic valve which is a one of the most common valvular abnormalities. My Orrick valve, two leaflets were fused. So over time it became severely narrowed. It was statistics ahead to have it replaced and it had created an aneurysm. So in at fifty four, I was facing open heart surgery, which is quite a major surgery, and my yoga practice was really profoundly helpful because no matter how vulnerable you are and believe me in the hospital in those gowns that never really fit me in their open in the back. And I always feel exposed and cold no matter. What's going on in the outer world, you can still control your inner world, and this is what the yoga practice helps us do. So in preparing for surgery. Certainly in the days before surgery, there's a lot of anxiety and anticipation. So helping to to sleep just keeping my energy positive. And then in the in the surgery itself, my my surgeons were kind enough to let me bring in the time. It was an ipod that I had yoga chanting, and I listen to that as I was put under the anesthetic. And as I was recovering from surgery, even if you're in a hospital bed and you can't really move, you can still breathe. You can still meditate and then in recovery, it's the the teaching that we learn yoga, which is to avoid strain to challenge yourself. So it's, you don't want to be lazy, but you don't wanna be pushy. And in our culture, that's one of the things as yoga teacher that I think I, I really try to emphasize the most because many people come in and they wanted to it right. And they wanna give one hundred ten percent. And they think it's another exercise class where you've got to compete and you gotta look like the person next to and you're pushing yourself in kind of a racing all of that. And I try and my classes to create an environment, welcoming environment. It doesn't matter what anybody else any other Matt is doing or looks like this is your practice and and find that place where you're challenging yourself, but you're not straining. Well, we have an Email from JR in Chapel Hill who says, I've had restless legs syndrome. I entirely life. It was so bad. My legs would spouse them at night in wake my husband up. I finally cured it by doing yoga several times a week. Perhaps the stretching helps to get rid of the lactic acid in the muscles. Yoga has also cured my chronic back end hip pain. So how often does somebody need to practice yoga to get benefit. I would say a short practise daily, and you know, even five to ten minutes, a short practise daily is better than a big long practice now. And then so how much does someone have to practice to get benefit. A daily practice again, even five to ten minutes would be useful. What are some of the other benefits of yoga? Does it have any benefit for the heart? I mean, we don't think of it as a cardiovascular exercise, like vigorous walking or running. What about things like balance fruit sample? So while the it's not aerobic like like running or walking the benefit for the heart may come from the relaxation and the and the stress reduction. The the lowering of the the respiration rate and lowering of the heart rate in terms of literature. And the scientific evidence for yoga is really in its infancy. But over the last decade, there's been a growing body of research looking into yoga. And now if you go to clinical trials dot gov, and you search yoga, there, hundreds and hundreds of studies that are looking at. Yoga as therapeutic modality for everything from cancer to chronic pain. It's just a, there's a huge literature. What the evidence suggests at this time is robust enough to say that yoga can do would be the the back pain in the neck. Pain seemed to be relatively well established some indications for chronic pain and for heart rate hypertension. So it's it's, it's growing and I'm very excited to be a consultant on the study that's being done looking at yoga for two. Very cool. We take a short break, but when we come back, we're going to find out about the importance of breathing. You've already mentioned it a little bit, but we want to get a little bit more like how do you do that? Exactly. There are a lot of different types of yoga. How can you determine the best type free cute a practice? If you've used yoga practice to help with a health condition, we invite you to join the conversation.

Today we're talking about the health benefits of yoga. Our guest Carol Krucoff is co director of the yoga for seniors teacher training program. She's a yoga therapist at Duke integrative medicine in Durham, North Carolina. Carroll has written extensively for numerous publications, including yoga journal as well as the New York Times and the Washington Post her. Most recent book co authored with Kimberly Carson is relax into yoga for seniors, a six weeks programme for strength, balance, flexibility, and pain relief.

If the lines are full and they are at the moment, you can reach us through Email radio at people's pharmacy dot com. And Joe, we have an Email from Helen in West Virginia who says, I've been practicing yoga for about twenty years. I'm very pleased with several outcomes. One is good posture. I'm still five foot seven, the height I achieved in high school. All the other is that my balance is very good. I've had some close calls on steps and I've always been able to instantly correct. And finally, the meditation techniques I've learned have curbed my anxiety, many times, and here's the best part and it's in all caps. Yoga feels good. That's wonderful. And you know the reason that people come back to doing something is because they enjoy it. So to me, that's that's part of the reason why we do yoga is because it feels good. We can be friend, our bodies. We can enjoy having these bodies. Vehicles for our spirits. That's great. We go to Dallas, Texas, Charles, welcome to the people's pharmacy. Hi, thank you very much. I'm really interested in your program. I started yoga when I was sixty two because I was having substantial problems in my hip and walking and sitting and I was stiffening up in my back, couldn't even touch my knees. And at the suggestion of of of a doctor, he said, if you don't start doing something, you'll stiff stiff enough. But he said, try yoga. And I've been going every day for six days a week since and it's been unbelievable. So are you able to walk without pain. Not only can I walk without pain. I can now do jumping jacks that I haven't done since high school that is good news. We, we really do appreciate it Carol. I'm well. Well, that's that's a wonderful testimonial and not just to you, but also to your yoga teacher that is wonderful to to know that you found someone who is clearly a very good teacher, and we had a physician recommending yoga, which is kind of cool because I think a lot of times we get into the mode of thinking, oh, we'll doctors are going to recommend medications, non streudel anti-inflammatory drugs, or perhaps recommended orthopedic surgeon who will do a knee hip replacement or a knee replacement. So here's a physician say, hey, let's try yoga. I and it worked, and that is that is great. And part of the the reason why they're such a a move in the yoga community to research the effects is because it will result in physicians making these referrals. And because back pain is an area that there's very strong evidence of f.. Cosc- physicians are referring people to yoga, which is great. We actually have an an Email for Mary Kay, who wants you to compare Taichi and yoga for seniors? Well, there are many similarities in yoga and Taichi both are what would be called a mind, body activity in that with Taichi with yoga, you count be watching television and do Taichi or do yoga. You might be doing Taichi moves in yoga moves while you're watching television, but you are, you're not doing the practice. So you have to be completely involved with what you're doing. You have to be very present in both Taichi and in yoga Tai. Chi is a very slow martial art where you're, you're staying very present. You shift your weight from one side to the other. So Taichi is often recommended for older adults. It's done in Asian communities, and there's good efficacy for Taichi in ballet. One of the biggest differences with yoga and Taichi is that Taichi as far as I'm aware as always done standing, whereas yoga, you're in many planes of action. If people can get down and up from the floor, they can lie down and if they can't get down and up from the floor, you can do yoga in your bed, but you can do yoga prone. So they're moving to their done, prone and supine. They're also inverted movements. So if you're physically able to be upside down, you could do a handstand in yoga. I'm not sure that there any inverted movements Taichi. So that's a little bit of the, the difference, the planes of action. Okay. Well, we go to IRA Texas, Gail welcome to the people's pharmacy. Hi, I'm so happy to talk Carol. I took your training back at Duke and number of years ago led to say hi. There's that since that time opened a yoga studio in the small farming community almost on the Oklahoma border. And I have people coming from great distances because there's not a lot of yoga around here that it's so good to hear your voice again. And that wanted to know that your methods and your book are being shared with my classes. I do a chair yoga class twice a week, and I've got a lady and there that's eighty four, but the very best part of my yoga classes, they all say, is the Chivas in where they can just shut everything out, let their bodies come to quiet and give some time just to themselves and I owe that to you. Gale, thank you so much for sharing that story for those of our listeners who don't quite know what you mean when you say chair yoga, can you explain? Well, we do a lot of the poachers from the chair where sitting down we can do a lot of upper body where we stretch our arms and Nixon round airbags like cat Cal, we use the chair also to get down to the floor, and there was a specific way that I was taught there at Duke to stand with your hands and that little thing on the place where the legs attach, and we practice that in standing they use the chair as they get down to the floor, put one down and the other day on, and I had one person who's now deceased, and I taught them that her that that if they ever fell in their house to get to a place where they can pull themselves up, and I was told that that he did that and was able to do that before she passed. And so it helps throughout the lives that that we have left and enquiring minds when a no gale. Do you have. Have any farmers in that farming community doing yoga. That was a good question. I do have I have per person down the road from me. His name is Mike. He has had a valve replacement and he's came to yoga, of course, with the encouragement of his allies. And they both did yoga for while he's now in cardiac rehab and has said that, you know, he'll come back to yoga when he can. He's, he's involved in that right now. And even my husband who is a farmer did classes when Mike was coming, but you're right, it's more women. I'm encouraging men because my husband is also a golfer ended helps with his shoulders and back when he gets a little bit stiff from golf kale. Thanks so much for your call. It was delightful to hear from you Gail and I'm so appreciative to hear that. The techniques that we've been teaching at Duke are making their way out into the world because what my experience has been working with older adults and people with health challenges is hearing far too many times from people who say, oh, I went to yoga class. My doctor said, I should go to yoga class. So I went to this gym or this y or something, and I got hurt. And the reality is that if people are older adults or have health challenges walking into just any yoga class may not be the most advisable thing you want to be working with a teacher who has been trained to work with older adults and people with health challenges because many of the postures that are commonly done in yoga classes. May not be appropriate when people have hypertension or they have a low bone density and many Oga teachers with the just sort of the basic, right. A mentoring training are not aware of this. I had a woman who is new to my class yesterday, who at the end of the class said, I really love this class and it was so different from what I've been getting because I went to a senior yoga class at another location. And the teacher just did things really slow, but they were too hard for me, but they were really slow and that's, that's that's not. Teachers need special training. How can you find a teacher who has the knowledge that you will need as a beginning yoga? Well, ask the teacher, what his or her credentials are. The basic credential for a yoga teacher would be an r. y. t. which means they're registered yoga teacher with the yoga alliance. But that is just a baseline. You more extensive training might be reflected in someone who's a yoga therapist. That would be a c. I a. y. t. so that's that indicates that that person has training in therapeutic applications and ask the person, how long have you been teaching yoga? Have you worked with people with older adults? Where did you do your training? It's there's a lot of what I call yoga flavored exercise out there, which is an exercise class where people are doing yoga poses, and they're still using the same mentality. Thirty two. I don't have anything against exercise. I love exercise classes. I've been a gym rat for much of my life, but if you're calling it yoga than it should not be competitive, it should not be judgmental. People should not be pushing themselves. It should be. It's a different. It's a different animal. We go to Ray in Durham, North Carolina. What's your story? Right? Jerry, Joe. Thanks for the show, and thanks Dr. Carol, I've got a fish in the phrase what goes around comes around for for you. Joe and Jerry is a theory is just not a daunting for boating phrase because of of your body of fort that United brought to our community over the years. So thank you for the show general. I really glad that you brought up at four factor that almost spiritual factor of yoga because, well, it was in a class maybe five years ago. Then I finally was able to shake a lower back from them that have been nagging me literally since my sophomore year in high school. And you know the technique that that yoga instructor there, Chapel Hill us was, yeah. I just went to one of her classes. It was a hot room. It was probably about a hundred degrees. Maybe ninety five degrees. And it was a power flow yoga class. But my daughter invited me and she helped me some of the poses and gave me the pollsters to us. So it was kind of. Yoga flavor plants that you just referred to. In that one class which only lasted maybe maybe seventy five minutes. I've never had a problem with my lower back again. Well. Great news for sharing that story. The idea that one yoga class could actually make a difference. That's pretty amazing, but it's not unheard of. And what I often hear from people that that really makes a difference is the that they enjoy it that they for the first time in a long time, they felt like they could move their body without pain, the invitation to not push yourself, but to enjoy the practice to be aware to move with breath. It can be a way of befriending your body that many people aren't used to. It's it's it's surprising to me when I one of the biggest surprises in for me as being a yoga teacher and therapist is how much self-loathing there is out there and how many people are just at war with their bodies. My stupid hip, oh my stupid back. I'm too fat. I'm and this. There's just so much going on in their their. Minds in their hearts in relationship to their physical body and the practice of just learning to love yourself. Exactly. As you are right now and to breathe and to notice and to recognize that you are whole incomplete as you are even with all your in perfection and that is the practice. It's not about all when I lose ten pounds. Oh, in this happens, it's about right now. What's going on and being grateful. Carol, Ray mentioned hot yoga. What are the benefits and risks of hot yoga? So for people with cardiovascular issues, hot yoga would not be something that I would recommend because in high temperatures that can place more stress on the heart. People who enjoy hot yoga, the benefits are promoted to be that it helps the flexibility. It can ease muscle pain, but there are there are also risk. WCHS to moving in a hot environment. And for the population that I work with, which is older adults and people with health challenges, it's hot. Yoga would generally not be my recommendation. We only have about a minute left, but all of these different kinds of yoga. There's something called hatha yoga, and there's hot yoga, and there's this yoga, and there's how do you know which is the right yoga for you. We'll hafa yoga is the umbrella term for the physical practice of yoga. So all of the kinds of yoga, virtually all of what we think of as yoga in the west is hafa yoga. Anything with postures is hafa yoga. And within that there are many different forms and varieties, and it really depends on your individual goals in your what where you are. But if somebody is new to yoga, I would say, start with the beginner class, even if you're very fit and Noah lot about other things get the found. Nations and start at the beginning. Now I do have a question and I have to be a little honest. This comes from my daughter, and she says, how do you know when you're experiencing good pain versus bad pain, namely, how do you know when to stop versus keep going in a posture? That is such a good question, and that's what she's describing, what we call the edge. So you wanna take something to challenge. Not to strain if you're not sure. Check your breath. If you can breathe comfortably and easily, it's probably okay if your breath is compromised in any way back off. And you said that the probably the best thing for a beginner is to start with a beginner's class, absolutely. You wanna get the foundations and get the basics. That is all the time we have today. We wanna thank our guest. Carol Krucoff. She is a yoga therapist at Duke integrative medicine in Durham, North Carolina.

The, the big thing you get is the sense of satisfaction and you know feeling of of you know good cheer for for helping us out. We've been I've been doing podcast fun for ten years now. The the lives we have now the careers we have. Now, the stuff that we make now is only possible because of the support we've gotten from folks like you so. If. You've been thinking about doing it and don't delay because again, there's only a couple of days left in the drive go to maximum fund dot org slash join now please. I think. Well, oh small wonders low wonders I can go first this week. Okay. Butter butter love butter realized maybe eighty percent of the time when I find a dish particularly good because there is a lot of butter and a lot of butter. I actually heard that Paula deen her whole sort of like aesthetic from you. And by that I mean her love of. Bud. Her She saw this tiny Saint Louis Girl Yeah. Just really slathering it on in a restaurant eight and a stickle land lakes. It was a snickers bar again, you know what? I'm GonNa make a whole thing just around that. Yes. I wanted to talk about the show that we recently watched net called on this spectrum which I I don't know a ton about or how it was made. But it is a essentially a reality dating show about people on the autism spectrum and you follow along with like like eight or so folks I think it's only like four episodes. It's not a very long. Very, long haul but you know Rachel and I are fans of a good dating reality show of which there are very, very few these days. And I think that it like you know scratches all of those particular itches but it also offers a look at the autism spectrum in a way that is like so God. It's so tangible. It's so like. It by placing it through the lens of states, which is like one of the more sort of sufficiently uncomfortable life events that any person can go through. makes. It makes it so so relatable, and so then when you are, you know offer these these glimpses into. Where each of the different people land on this spectrum and like how how that sort of manifests on these dates it gave me a genuine. I feel like understanding of what the spectrum is, where what it looks like to be on different parts of it better than like literally any thing I've ever seen I want to couch that by saying like it felt like to me, it was a fairly responsibly made show. I didn't find anything about it particularly ext exploitive which I think it would be a very, very easy thing to do, but I don't WanNa like set that in. Getting hard of what's really successful about it griffin and I commented on it right away is that they they show a lot of really successful couples sure. where one or both partners are on the spectrum and it's not like you just see these dating shows and it's just like, oh, dating hard. It's like let's see what this looks like when a couple of successful right? So you feel like Oh you feel hopeful and you feel. Really encouraged in and it's really heartwarming. It is like you are rooting for the people on this show like of so so so hard Kaur that are making it work It's just it's. It's great. But also as genuinely as you know, I feel fairly like with it when it comes to like the the autism spectrum like understanding like what it is but like it really really like. I, know it just it is very i. feel like educational about sort of like what what it means to to be on different parts of the spectrum I. Thought I thought it was really really incredible. You do get the like. You know it is not much like a dating show. It's like not there's this element of non reality to it because they are being filmed and because like a lot of these, the folks show who are on the spectrum. Have like an aversion to. Sort of social. What's artifice like that? Like it there is an element of like. Discomfort there. That made me maybe should not be there. Maybe it's like more uncomfortable than needs to be but I don't know I think in general like I thought it was really terrific and heartwarming and genuinely sweet. You go first this week. Do you want to? Yeah. I wanted to talk about for my first thing pretend play Like with kids like in the. You mean pretend play like. This you want to be you know and I mean we go. In the bedroom sometimes to like Oh light John Garfield play. Like sometimes your pharmacist and I am picking up a prescription. Yea Or sometimes like Cumulus Nimbus cloud and an airplane. Wow, through me, that was really powerful for me. It has to be now I'm talking about kids. Okay. That's better. I would rather talk about that me too. That's why I picked that. This is something that I'm really proud of for Henry. I think it's one of those things like you know in those early years you have those milestones of like talking along gain. And potty training and all that stuff. But I think the thing that has been most fun for me to watch and the thing that I really like like I don't know I don't want to brag on but I feel like this is a this is a demonstration of like how cool is is his pretend play abilities? Well, I think we can like couch it by saying maths he's just constantly. Putting up bricks he's never been really good at the the the show pieces that a lot of parents say like singer ABC song like can't do it. No. Yeah. Do It infrequently can count to ten but not like not the kind of thing we put on stage and say do it Henry? It's more like, Hey, take this Batman in this flash and create a World Sarah yesterday he he. It is exhausting for us in a way that is I kind of difficult to understand because it's not like he's running US ragged. He certainly does do that from time to time reaches wants to sprint all around the house like you know be pushed on his. Scooter or whatever all around the neighborhood, and that's exhausting in one way. But yesterday for probably about an hour and fifteen minutes, he wanted to do an extended inside out role play. using like these little using magnetized also like the Red Triangle was. And the Yellow Triangle was joy and like he wanted to do all V motions for no joke. About the run time of the entire fan and I got to the end of it like I am I am creatively spent my man. It's one of those things too like when Griffin and I talked about our own childhoods we realized was a big part of like our growing up I mean me particularly because I was an only child and maybe you because you were the youngest you it's like you create your own little characters in your own little world and it becomes a big. Part of what you do when you play particularly when you're not, let's say a especially athletic kid sure and so it was something that like when I saw Henry do it. I was like, Oh, I remember that that's that's me and I feel like it's also particularly suited welfare griffin is such a good storyteller improviser in it hasn't proved mind. Improvisational skills. Really dramatically, we were talking to your parents yesterday about how Henry likes wrong books where he wants us to read books but do every single thing in the book wrong. Like say the wrong names and the wrong. Colors and the wrong everything and like I feel like I could do I could join a herald team at this point because of how he's forgotten to part of me understands it. Right. He has so many books that we've read to him hundreds of times and so for him, he knows the book now and he's excited to see what the story would be if it were different. Yeah. But he's he started doing that with new books which I think he doesn't really get like you don't even know you don't even know this song really I guess you could look at the pictures and But you've forgotten the point of this guy. And so I, you know maybe for my own edification and also just out of curiosity I looked into like pretend pretend play and I'll because it seems like the kind of thing that would build a skills. Share like you, there's obviously a lot of creativity involved, but there's a lot of opportunities to kind of demonstrate and act out different things that you're not maybe personally experiencing. Yes. There's a lot of value in that like a lot of research talks about how you have the opportunity to express both positive and negative feelings in kind of integrate emotion with cognition like this, and I've seen that with Henry to like sometimes all the characters are playing and one isn't doesn't have a friend than he'll like bring a. Friend. In and talk about how it feels and it's just like it's cool to see him. kind of tests doubt emotions in problem solving in this little made up world that he's created. Yeah and there's a lot of value in that especially in a time where he's not really getting to be around a lot of other kids I will say though yesterday during our extended inside Outlaw Ping that we were doing he got really angry that I wouldn't make the sadness emotion become happy I. Don't think he understood the. Film My. Dog. they also talk about how it gives the opportunity to to work through kind of reduced aggression delay of gratification empathy. This idea especially if you're playing with other kids and you can't control the narrative is I will say with Henry as you just mentioned he kind of tells us where the story can go I. Imagine if you were playing with other kids, they would be less accommodating the he'll steamroll right over us but he has a deference for older children that I think you know nullifies that somewhat. I mentioned the increase of creativity. There's also suggestion like when they look at, like Nobel, prize and Macarthur winners that those early childhood games were kind of more make believe in creative. Sure. You know kind of expanding your later capacity to kind of imagine these worlds. Do, things that aren't possible currently Just building curiosity to at that for me like if anybody were to ask kind of the skill that I think is most valuable just in your entire life span I feel like curiosity like number one. Yeah Right. It's one of the things that I like always respected and whistling about older people. Yeah. Whistling is. Whistling yeah. They're whistling ability I. Mean when you look at a person that can whistle. Yeah. Sure. Clyde. What isn't possible? Yeah. What else? What else mouth do what Rachel likes to say? Grateful to say that. Rachel loves to say that on the street like you see like somebody like landscaping skipping their stepping. And you're like Oh what Do you don't like well no I mean I have shouted across the street before you have. You did do that once or twice yeah and you were. Spoken to sternly by an officer of the loan. Excuse me Miss Yeah we don't do they don't do that here. I will say like there was a a researcher that looked kind of the stages of play which I thought was interesting. This is Dr Sarah Smolinski. And she talks about kind of you know initially kids when they are learning to play There's doing something called functional play, which is just like a here is a teddy bear and I am giving it a drink of water and that's kind of the first stage of like I'm pushing a shopping cart to put things in and then constructive play where they're like building a house out of blocks like this idea they're doing a little bit more creativity, but it's like I'm GonNa. Make this thing of that I. They really exists and it's GonNa look like the thing that exists and then dramatic plays what happens from like h three on which is like You're cooperating. You're you're using something to represent something else from its original purpose and you're kind of imitating familiar scenarios in your play. You're writing an entire fucking Tennessee Williams play, but starring the avengers. which is our usual mo around this household. Yeah, he has started to understand. I think a little bit that that the avengers universe is different than the Batman Universe I've no. Yeah. Yeah. They still interact, but he gets there not like coexisting traditionally. The fourth stage of play often is just like where you learn how to play games. When you learn how to do this griffin is really anxious for this Bush. Really pushing that come home. But when you figure out that there are rules and there are ways to place or games and that it is important to stick to those rules. Yeah. I. Get out the chess set every once in a while and how like roundhouse kick all the pieces off of it I'll be like that's that's progress. We've got to he kind of understands hide-and-seek. Yeah. which is I mean there are rules associated with that we're getting there. Yeah but that's yeah that's that's my thing. Pretend play. That's very good I have. weirdly my first thing is kind of the exact polar opposite of that and it's real work ask. My first thing. Okay. This is gonNA sound really really out there. So I need everybody to kind of stick with me and grant me like five or six minutes of just kind of like clemency while I lay lay it all out. Okay. My first thing is nightmares we've talked about dreams on the ship before Rachel specifically has talked about dreams on the show. I don't think nightmares. Themselves are great. Obviously I think they're scary and they can contribute to sleep deprivation which I've never really I. Don't think I've talked about on this show or any other, but it's like a thing I really struggle with. Particularly since we've. been. I have had a bouts of insomnia that lasted for very, very, very long stretches of time I only get like a few hours of sleep a night and it sucks shit and it's bad and I might definitely see my nightmares count tick up during that time I want to say nightmares like I'm not talking about just like badgering and talking about like long extended like vivid disturbing dreams. Why Wonderful Oh I'm going to get there. They are common among children but they are less among adult i. didn't realize this but I found a couple places that corroborated this about only half of adults actually have like occasional nightmares really that seems it seems wild only to eight percent of adults have them like very frequently and I would count myself among that number because I have them really quite frequently. And had them by like Oh yeah. Nightmare in a few years. Nightmares. Take place in rem sleep much like dreams Beth that good sleep the deep stuff, and because rem cycles get longer as time goes on most nightmares that you have happened closer to the morning they happened in Lake early morning hours. Instead of like you typically, you don't wake up in a cold sweat and it's like you know eleven thirty at night and you've just had a very, very quick nightmare i. didn't realize that's the distinction between Nightmares Night Terrors night terrors typically happen like pretty soon after you fall asleep and they are more based in, they feel like feelings rather than dreams. So it's like a completely different. Thing and that is not what I'm talking about nightmares are. Horrifying and scary. Nightmares sometimes spontaneous, but they also have a lot of attributable causes. Eating before bed like you I think you hear that in a Christmas Carol? Of Mustard. But eating right before bed can increase your metabolism and brain activity which can contribute that. there are medications specifically wants to act on the brain like antidepressants. And architects are associated with nightmares as are some like non. Psychological. Medications things like a lot of blood pressure medication has been attributed to nightmares. Sleep deprivation can be a trigger which is a vicious cycle because it can also lead to sleep deprivation if you have had nightmares so rough and rumbled that when I. Wake up I am so like you know. That I just cannot fall asleep, which then makes me more sleep deprived, which then makes it more. That is still something I hold onto today that started happening as I was a kid you the idea that you wake up from a nightmare and sometimes if you fall back asleep right away, you will like be in it again. Yes. That happened a lot as a kid and I like would teach myself try and stay awake for awhile and I still do that as an don gray it's not a great. and. Then also just like anxiety and depression, and of course, PTSD. Can also lend themselves to chronic nightmares as can sleep disorders like sleep apnea or restless legs syndrome. And Yeah. Nightmares are fucking brutal and they are bad the good news is that they do have a lot of you know attributable causes and so there is there are things that you can do to limit them. If you do end up having them like chronically before they can have like a detrimental effect on your health. So nightmares are not wonderful I have them a lot and frequently like wake up literally covered in sweat I showed you the Griffin sized sweat. In our bed from the other day when I woke up in the middle of on and. As rough what is wonderful is best sense of relief when you wake up from a nightmare and you've realized that it wasn't real this was a long walk Griffin I. told you need like five or six minutes to get there but now we're here I. In the same way that when I have the dream that I have that I might always the most pumped like the telekinesis dream, which is like Oh shit. It's real I'm moving stuff with my mind. Yeah. I probably won't remember how to do it. I can remember how to do it. I just had the superpower and then I wake up I'm like, FUCK Let me try to the lamp on with My. mind. A dream, this is the version of that where I have some a horrible dream. Nightmares. are never like being chased by a killer through the woods. It is typically like either way more apocalyptic than that or something like. A person that I know has passed away and I am sad or like I very frequently have the the actor's nightmare of just being stage and not knowing any of the words of the show and being like humiliated about that and much like Christmas Carol which I referenced earlier when you wake up from one of those nightmares and it's like boy, what day is it today? It wasn't real. That is incredible. That is the good stuff for me, and it also sometimes has a very tangible effect on my life I remember when I was living in Chicago. I was having nightmares like literally every night just constantly I was having nightmares because I wasn't like leaving the house and I was like super depressed and not really doing anything about it I was eating garbage and just like not taking care of myself. So my nightmare was just constant and I had one where a friend of mine. Had had died and I was just like it was so real it was like I had woken up and my friend was gone and I was like so so so so heartbroken about it and so when I woke up the next morning and realized that it wasn't real, I was so over the moon and I got back in touch with that friend Br. Stayed, in touch with them because I felt this. Like incredible relief that they were still there and it made me feel more sort of like grateful. That is the best case scenario of it. But even just like a dream where you know the world is ending or whatever, and the anxiety that that brings about and having that just be nullify. Kind of like a super horse in I, I will have dreams a lot of times where I am in some kind of argument with somebody and it is nice to wake up and be like Oh. Good. That didn't. Yes. Yeah it is. It's I don't really have anything else to say I couldn't find a lot of research on this. There's a lot of research on what causes nightmares and I am not please do not walk away from this segment say thinking nine nightmares kick ass they're not but that like. Second chance. If feels like a second chance that you get sometimes after like a really really vivid, really realistic nightmare that makes you feel grateful that it wasn't real when you wake up in the morning like there's not a lot of research on that but it is. I I had a terrible dream last night. and. This morning I woke up and it wasn't real and I was very, very little spring in my step. Was Really Nice. That was a weird segment. Yes.

Yeah I feel like everything I know about the ferris wheel came from devil in the White City. Oh Yeah I mean that would be appropriate. Right of would-be a have you read that book? I. Have Not all kicks ass and maybe actually restating some of the information that is in there. Oh, you almost certainly are it's a book that is largely about the ferris wheel. I I love the ferris wheel. Sure. I was a kid and I was a little terrified of rollercoasters. Ferris wheel was my go-to. Yeah. Look. I want to get up there. I WanNa see the Park WanNa, see the sights particularly scared of of the upside downs and you can't do that with Ferris wheel not on most of them want to know which. Games have the best like stuffed animal like where's the big sponges? Bob's where's the big sponges Bob's at because that's the that's those are the Games. I'M GONNA make a beeline to you can see it from up high. I'M NOT GONNA waste my fucking money on Frog Hammer launch game I'm not gonNA. Do the ping pong balls into the fish bowls no way also ferris wheel good for Kudrin good for switching. It's no one can say when you're at the zenith of it. You're the highest in the park no one's going to see you necking. You do have a limited arc there to net before your youth pastor handsy. A lot of the rides or restrictive you really you really buckled in you can't. You can't do the arm around the shoulder, but you can with the Ferris wheel also tunnel of love is not a thing that actually exists anywhere in the actual world. Well, I mean the dark rights talk radio putting you GonNa, do you GonNa Kiss on the? Haunted House right? Ask the right attendant exactly. How long the right is. So you knew how much time you have to work with away man. ferris wheel. So was not the actual like first of its kind the big the big ferris wheel we know about designed by George Washington, Gale Ferris was after there had been such a creation by William, summers built a fifty foot wooden wheel at Asbury. Park. Atlantic City and Coney? Island's. He called it a roundabout okay but but the ferris wheel was designed as kind of the answer to the Eiffel Tower. The world's Columbian Exposition was happening in Chicago. This is in eighteen nineties and Eiffel Tower just come out and everybody's like what are we gonNA do and it was kind of the big task. There was a man named Daniel Burnham in late eighteen ninety that was tasked with kind of turning this this little square mile of Chicago into a world showcase and he approached a bunch of designers and said, we've gotta figure something out there's got to be as good as Eiffel Tower, but is is not just the Eiffel Tower This is explicitly you have to redouble noy explicitly about Daniel Burnham and the like incredible infrastructural challenge of creating this this this world's fair. Yeah. So George Washington Gale Ferris with a time was thirty three years old and from Pittsburgh said like all right I've got an idea. And he was initially charged with inspecting the steel used by the fair and thought, Oh, well, let's do a huge revolving steel wheel. And everybody was like that will never work and he spent a lot of his own money making sure that it could happen So he spent twenty five thousand dollars on safety studies and hiring more engineers and recruiting investors all to make this happen and it ultimately measure two hundred, fifty feet in diameter and what's up how's your shitty fifty foot? At thirty six cars which made it capable of holding sixty people. That's that is I forgot how that's so fucking big to get on something like that in their nineteenth century. Let me just hop aboard this two hundred, fifty foot tall man made object in the nineteenth century get like way higher than I have ever been. Yeah. No. over the next nine weeks more than one point four million people paid fifty cents for a twenty minute ride during that time period and I will say the most notable part of this wheel was an eighty nine thousand pound axel that had to be hoisted onto two towers one hundred and forty feet in the air. Just, the construction of this thing I mean, it's incredible I. Think I mean? Obviously the Eiffel Tower gets a lot of credit for even inspiring somebody to think this big. Towers creation of what was essentially like a Parisian world's fair. Like was its own sort of like. Everything like that. Made in that era was just an engineering flax of just like now we've made the greatest object currently extant in the world, and so that's that's what this was a swing at. The Ferris wheel that was created for this Columbian Exposition did not. Did. Not Survive it. It actually made its way to Saint Louis and. It was sold for the nineteen o four Louisiana Purchase Exposition in Saint Louis and then two years later dynamited. So That's the only way to kill this. Big. Big Bastard. Farris also became immersed in a lot of lawsuits about debt that he owed suppliers and that the fair owned him it did not not l. and well for them which I mean you you know you invest a lot of your money into something. There's always some risks associated with that. Yeah. There is a big ferris wheel in Chicago today sure do you ever go up in that? Navy pier? I, never really went to Navy pier is not allowed there. Well, yeah and also I didn't really know anybody in Chicago. So that's a weird solo excursions feel like. Let me just go navy pier ferris wheel by myself. the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel was added to pier park in Nineteen ninety-five was one hundred and fifty feet tall and forty Gondolas in two, thousand, sixteen, they updated it. Up to two hundred feet. And had climate controlled Gondolas. the biggest. Ferris. We currently twenty fourteen in Las Vegas Nevada Oh really. Five hundred fifty feet tall. That's quite large shows too big. One Big One guy. That's so big. Yeah. You can. You can learn a lot. There's a lot. It becomes kind of a showpiece for a lot of cities because it looks great. I love it and I was just about to say like London. I forget what the? Name it's on the tip of my tongue Hong Kong has like a great one I remember. Love it. I love the apple. The Apple TV does this incredible screensaver essentially, which is just like these panoramic sweeping shots of either different sort of way beautiful environments or city skylines and I feel like I can identify most cities by the Ferris wheel that they have gone London once called the London I yes away. yeah I just I don't know it seems kind of ridiculous in a lot of ways Because it's just Takes up space. You know not a lot of people can be on it at once. Yeah. You know it's exactly a thrilling thing for a lot of people now that they've been on a bunch of roller coasters. There's something kind of romantic and beautiful about it. It's great. It's good shape. It's a great. It's it's the simplicity of it is what makes it so so perfect plus it's always fun to think about it. You know coming off of its. Role for for a while probably be terribly injured. Yeah. But what a way to go Like how did your Uncle Mike Pass away all heart failure as too bad how your Uncle Mike Pass away? Oh, well. Okay. He was on this ferris wheel and it came. Down the highway, it was radical. Hey can I tell you my second thing? Yes. So excited for this is my favorite music video of all time hands down no competition. For also an exceptional song, the music video four scenario by a tribe called quest featuring leaders of the new school. which I finally kind of looked into the origins of this collaboration. And learned a whole lot but scenarios like scenarios. One of the all time best like hip hop bangers in the history of recorded music, it is widely regarded as the best song. Also one of the best posse cut. Yeah. Essentially just like a a pseudo competitive round robin of emcees just like each do I feel like anybody like that can? Vary like strongly remember their introduction to hip hop and kind of as they explored the genre, we'll have a tribe called quest. They weren't. Yes. They were known for they did a lot of collaborations. A lot of positive cuts in this is it's their best known song. So it is, of course, their best known collaboration with. Leaders, of the new school who were this young upstart quartet. From Long Island and they do like young as hell and making this huge name for themselves. They started opening for public enemy and Chuck. D was like this like father to them gave two of their members, their names, those two members were Charlie Brown and a young BUSTA. rhymes. was. The standout member of leaders of the new school and in fact, like after this collaboration after scenario where a tribe called quest was like these guys are fucking incredible. Let's let's get them on a track. BUSTA rhymes was like this was the launch pad for his career and while I think Charlie Brown also like everybody is incredible in this song Busta rhymes is the only one that kind of just had this meteoric rise. His his his bandmates did not necessarily follow that same trajectory which led to a a bit of hostility between them some of which was. Actually of aired out during. Kind of infamous episode of TB wraps. But this song is fucking amazing. Buster I'm comes in with the very last verse and. Is like so memorable there's so many like memorable like single like pairings of lines in this song that listening to hear sample all the team here sampled all the time. WHO's that Brown is like in so many fucking songs and it's three words. Is. Like hearing it and knowing a little bit about like who has sampled white and hearing it all in the same for track is like a staggering history lesson contained in one single just. A Bob. I'm going to play a little bit of it. Now because I know that it's you know it was recorded in one, thousand, nine hundred and there's probably a lot of our listeners who've made me never even heard it. So here is Busta rhymes verse at the end of scenario lust. Combined from the mind up, we'll bring it back. Come wine. In The Canon. Every that's the magic spoke. Beverage necessary went picking and. Very Oh. My Gosh Oh Man. Come back. Off. well-earned his his career launch off this song was well earned. So. fucking. Good. When I hear this song I. Don't just WanNa listen to it though I absolutely have to watch the music video because it is i. was not familiar with video like I hadn't heard the song you know hundreds of times and then I watched the video and I don't think I've ever seen this before you. You're on this level with me now though, right that it is like all-time fucking amazing very nostalgic freeze it is nineteen ninety-one. Boiled down into this beautiful prisme attic crystal. Directed by Jim Swo- field who did a lot of work with a tribe called quest and directed a few music videos back in that day most famously the music video for summertime by Dj Jazzy Jeff and the fresh prince. is another. Great great music video but scenario plays out and I would encourage you to just watch it. Now before I talk about it, 'cause it will be impossible for me to describe the. Rampant charm of this video it is shown ends an interactive. Top. where windows appear like featuring like low rez videos of. The members of a tribe called quest and leaders just like going at it or clips from like. Concerts. Video. Games being referenced like No. Okay 'cause I i. saw some some of the like little interactive elements reminded me of these game player creation while what it is reminiscent of is just some windows three point zero ass interfaces that run the gamut from like the president and the entire video it is shown as like these overlapping windows of that are that are popping up of non extant applications. At one point, five dog is doing a verse. Any appears in this like Salon App, where MINUE toggles him through by various haircuts. That's a trick that they really liked to go I think at one point. BUSTA, rhymes his doing verse, but he's wearing a green screen shirt and so the APP is like switching between different patterns they really really liked that trick. There's like fake camera control editing interfaces switching between like Dutch angles and. All kinds of different things. At one point there is like there inscrutable like cameos of just like a window will pop up and there's red man or window will pop up and it's just like there's Spike Lee. Talking reasoning like I did a double take when I saw that I was like Whoa. Wait that. Why are you spike? Lee Spike Lee. A window is just Baba's headlong into music is like okay I guess. It like it is so much of it is kind of like nonsensical, but there's also like extremely fresh and like playful and again like just some Microsoft Encarta ass interfaces that feel so so so wildly nostalgic. Based on some actual existing game because it seems so precise. No, I mean there were okay. So there were. Certain Games like MTV music generator or there was a SEGA CD, game called make my video and make my video what a come out. Maybe mid nineties I want to say there was I. think it came with just like two songs I. Think one of them was jumped jump and you like press different buttons on the controller to switch between different like video feeds. Edit together, essentially, very barebones music video essentially using three different fields of music, and then at the end, a director or producer would be like, Hey, that was pretty good. You Got Ninety percent. Maybe, it's like I don't know I feel like this video informed that game or. From this video. But it is just so. It is so nineties, but it is also so fucking fine and the song is so fucking good and I get like obsessed with it I will like think about it. And I will be doing I haven't watched it in a while I'll watch it and then it will be all I can think about for a solid week I've watched like eight times today it's so beautiful incredible and good and You should watch it again if you've heard the song and you know the song rips but you've never seen the music video, you owe it to yourself to go on this journey.

Rachel mortgage team. That's funny. Because like ten minutes ago, you said you wanted to replace. Its just. Mike Myers has consistently driven a wedge between us or not but not you love. So I married an axe murderer that's like your shit. I haven't watched it in a very long time I. don't even know if I feel comfortable saying that anymore I think my hostility towards Mr Myers has grown such that I might not appreciate it as much. Well. Yeah. You will admit that you are not a fan of Mr Powers or Mr Shrek or Mr Borat which like he didn't do but I, also think you could lay them with. Some of the blame would be no bar out with that. Mr Myers. It's interesting. You can read Rachel's entire sort of capstone paper that she wrote in college about a is Borat Mike Myers. It goes off the rails, but I mean it's sixty pages of like well, well, researched well-documented in cited information's. What was the conclusion arrived at for that paper? No. Okay.
