"So if you're just lying back in the mental health field and doing whatever your doctor says, you're probably not going to get a good outcome. It's really starting to sound like women are sort of in the same boat. They're just walking in, giving their doctors some information, their doctor is giving them something, and historically, that's the end of the conversation. And you're really trying to generate education foundation and information that women need to push back. Patients need to push back to make sure that they're getting appropriate care. Yeah. That's the thing. It's like we as women need to know what we're up against. And again, I want to, we are not bashing the pill. We want the pill to be available and for many women, it works. It works seamlessly. And I think for me, it worked well for me until it was after the fact that the hair loss that I was like looking back on that. But really we want there to be more options. I completely understand how unfortunately the medical establishment does often fail people with serious and persistent mental illness. And we've got to do better. It sounds like you're on the front lines of making the medical establishment understand that we have to do better. Now, your focus is reproductive health, but it's going to weigh out, right? I mean, if we start taking reproductive health more seriously, it overlaps, you know, the ties to depression and all these other mental health issues to these drugs. You do better when you know better. Miss Lake, miss Epstein, I want to thank you both so much for being here. Before we go, I would be remiss if I didn't ask. What can men do? What is in important information that they have that if they were like me, they weren't taught anything about this because my sex Ed was segregated. I learned about sex Ed with all males in the room and all the young ladies went off someplace else, illuminated so that we understand birth control better or at least know what to ask. I think they could see the film. I agree. Yes. I think seeing the film, we have the same thing with the business of being born, the same feedback with so many men, so many fathers, just so happy to have this tool. And I think this is the same thing because I think that men they don't know how to get forward, right? And if they check in with their partner, their partner might say, yeah, you know, I actually feel pretty crappy on this birth control stuff. And I think that if men were able to step forward, if they understood the impacts on their partners, sex drives, the potential impact to their partner's mental health, then they might be able to come forward and say, hey, let's take this off your shoulders. Maybe I can just get a vasectomy, maybe we can do a fertility awareness class together. Maybe we can look at different barrier methods. I think it's just taking it on and educating. And I think the film is the perfect gateway to do that. Thank you. Thank you both so much for being here. The documentary is called the business of birth control..

"And we're back with Ricky Lake and Abby Epstein discussing their documentary, the business of birth control. Interestingly enough, I asked a few women in my life who are, in fact, on birth control, if they were aware of this, and they both said, no, they didn't think that there was any link whatsoever that all their contraceptive was doing was ensuring that they did not get pregnant and the side effects were no connection whatsoever to mental health. Right. You just do not get the time with your care provider for all of the reasons. There's just not enough hours in the day to really sit down and go through the pros and cons and make an informed choice when it comes to this. For me, I remember going to my gyno for my past year once a year and there'd be a stack of free pills they'd offer to me because the latest drug or the latest patent, they'd just be giving them away and it looks like candy, it seems so easy and like Abby said innocuous. But if you knew that this could have the potential to make you feel this way, it really might change someone's mind and there are options that might be more amenable. They just knew. That's what we're hoping to accomplish with this film is just education. Unfortunately, Gabe, we have a lot of conditions right now like endometriosis that affects one in ten women, PCOS, polycystic ovary syndrome, fibroids. We have a lot of issues that affect millions of women for which there is no cure and no treatment and no research. For those women going on hormonal birth control is a life saver. It is like literally the only thing that gets them out of their pain. Although ultimately, what we explained in the film is that it's just a symptom suppression, right? So the second you go off, your PCOS, your endometriosis. I mean, it's back. Back with a vengeance, unfortunately. Like Ricky's saying, it's kind of like, there's two kinds of patients here, right? There's somebody who might say, you know what? I'm willing to take the risk of having depression or low libido or a migraine. I'm willing to take that risk because I really need these drugs. This is essential for my functioning and my reproductive health because my endometriosis is so bad. But then there's the other, the healthy patient who doesn't have these issues, who is just looking for contraception, that's where it's not about only having like 5 minutes with your o-b-gyn. It's really about the fact that they don't actually believe you see there's no study. If you talk and say, well, I think this pills made me gain weight, or I actually think that I feel off. They will counter that. They will say, well, studies show the pill does not cause weight gain. And do you know why? Because there's never been a double blind placebo controlled study because you can't do them. All they can basically say is, oh, okay, well, that one doesn't suit you. Let's try different brands. There's hundreds of pills on the market. We'll find one that works with your body. That's typically the kind of answer you would get. There's also a big disconnect in women's health. What are the actual side effects? And from a psychological standpoint, this is your doctor. You say all they can do is prescribe a different pill and there's hundreds of pills. That they in that statement is your trusted physician who is taking care of you making you healthy. It's very, very reasonable to believe what they say, doesn't that complicate the issue dramatically because somebody watching the documentary is going to think, okay, you're making sense. And then they talk to their doctor and I'm not trying to throw doctors on the bus. I'm really, really not, but these one on one conversations are quick and they're like, no, no, I'll just give you another one. And then the person has to decide if they want to listen to the documentary or their doctor, that has to make your role as an advocate extraordinarily challenging. The bottom line is each woman has to advocate for herself. I went on it without even questioning. It's my doctor telling me what I should do. Okay, I'm going to do it. Okay, you know, Ricky and I have been up against this before, right? Because our first movie together, the business of being born was a little bit of the same thing. We were going again in some ways, we were questioning, we were pushing back on the way childbirth is managed in America. And I think that like Ricky said, this is the age we're at. We are in an age where you have to advocate and you have to do your own research. And I don't think that this kind of, I will call it a sort of a patriarchal relationship with the physician. They have all the power and whatever they say is the bottom line and you just listen and you just do as you're told and you trust every word out of their mouth. That doesn't work anymore. Especially in women's health, because the research just isn't there, women's health is in a dismal dismal state in this country. If you look at childbirth statistics, if you look at birth control, if you look at menopause, if you look at the hysterectomies that we do in this country, especially when it comes to women's health, women need to do your research. You need to look for alternatives. Now there's.

"That was one of the things that's really just basic to this. Who tells a 14 or 15 year old girl who, let's say, is going on the pill because of period cramps or acne or there's a million reasons to get put on the pill now. Way beyond birth control, right? Who sits down with that 15 year old girl and says, you know, you might feel like some mood swings or if you feel some depression or there's no warning about any of these subtle changes that can happen. And you'll hear this all the time from women. It's like they didn't realize what the pill was doing to them until they got off of it. And then all of a sudden they got off of it and they were like, wow, I feel so great now. There's something about these drugs like, yes, they're so pervasive and they've been described as like so innocuous and you can get it over the counter now, but nobody really understands what they're actually doing and how they work. There's a concept in philosophy and psychology for that matter. No good deed goes unpunished. And I just have to wonder because reproductive rights are constantly under attack. Is there any concern that misogynists? I mean, let's just be honest that misogynists will use your film to further stigmatize birth control or use it to restrict access to birth control. Meaning conservatives, right? Yeah. I'm trying to be polite, but yes, we see this. So the year saying that the pro life movement, you're saying, I mean, I don't know if there's like a fear of, I mean, I am coming from the place of wanting to really start this conversation and go deep. And yes, it's complicated because it is challenging something that has made so many advances for women. We want the pill to be on the market and available, but we want women to have the information to understand what exactly it's doing to their bodies. It really be able to baseline their own emotional and mental health while these drugs. So it's really about an education. And that's the same thing with our previous film, the business of being born. It's about empowering women with the information to make an informed choice because really there is no informed consent today. And what we're saying Gabe is it's next wave feminism. It's the opposite of conservative. We're saying, yes, women need access to all these reproductive health options. Options to manage their fertility, better menstrual cycle health, we're saying we want more and better where I think that if a more conservative or anti birth control anti access group tried to hijack our message, they really can't because they're just against contraceptive access. I mean, they're just, again, any kind of choice and we're the opposite. We're saying not only do we want more birth control. We just want better birth control. We just want birth control that women can actually take, or maybe even men can take. Let's get crazy. You know, that doesn't have this four page pamphlet of side effects. It's time for some innovation now and women are just not heard. They're just not heard on how frustrated most women have been throughout their lives, trying to find the right kind of contraception. I so appreciate you saying that the goal isn't to remove anything or restrict anything, but to provide education for what is already out there and push forward research into getting even better. I mean, none of us are using the same cell phones that we use even 5 years ago, yet I believe you made the point. We're using the same birth control from 60 years ago. One of the very interesting things that I learned from the two of you was that there was a study talking about how adolescents who take the pill are at an 80% increased risk of depression. That's very alarming, especially with what we know about the suicide rate in adolescence. Listen, I'm a mental health advocate. I'm the host of the show. This is my entire job. I did not know that. I was completely unaware of a risk for young women in the field of which I profess to be an expert. That is startling to me. Wow. What can we do to get this out there? Because again, I'm well intentioned, but clearly clearly I am ill informed. You're not the only one. I mean, my mother's been practicing clinical psychologists for 40 years. And only since we made the movie as she now connecting certain patients that put in an IUD and then started to have the anxiety and mood disorder increase. And now she is screening for that. I mean, I think the whole field of psychology. We really hope this movie gets screened. So at psychology conventions, all psychologists read doctor hill's book, this is your brain on birth control because it's shocking, right? Like how could you not know that and how could the women who are taking the pills themselves not understand the risk of depression and just so you know doctor light a guard, the Danish Doctor Who did that study that you're referring to, he also did a study on suicide that showed a similar link between certain types of oral contraceptives and suicide. And these are very good studies because when Danish studies, they track everybody through their health system. So this is looking at over a million women and tracking prescriptions and tracking prescriptions for the pill prescriptions for antidepressants, the hospitalizations for suicide attempts. It's pretty clinical, it's very shocking in this day and age. And especially with people waking up to mental health issues in general, that this is not more front and center. But I think that even when that study came out, there was a bit of pushback from the medical establishment.

"And so now i so now maybe we need to sit back and it really appreciate those dudes that brought it for twenty nine weekends. I mean maybe it's not that hard right. Well no no. I think it's extremely hard. Yeah no. I'm sorry. I don't know what i meant. I didn't mean that maybe it's okay so it's you know sorry i was trying to get some stats on my phone. Twenty fifteen last time dutch outdoors and out really. Yeah so we're six years of having different champions you know so i think clearly the supercross tracks have become less technical and more risky meeting. I mean you know these guys are picking up quads and do things that are just gnarly. Yeah so the amount of mental energy and focus at a takes to not die all and for that timeframe it could. There's there's no question it's going to wear you down and where and if you come up short indoors you're like hey i get outdoors. You know what. I mean so now like you're hungrier than they do to the supercross title right now. You're like wait. I need to get outdoors. Because i had. I didn't win super cost. the. I don't know i've always been i. Guess i've been around. Guys that have just been mental giants. You know done excelled at it and watching watching and talking to some of the guys. Now that have come through especially philip oto the few times we don't here and talking about it. You know it was all he could do to keep that focus on and nothing else mattered. Ricki ricky when he was going through it you know i think ricki ricki time probably probably wasn't the most approachable and personal writer to the fans on the balloon right because every of every ounce of his energy to stay focused to do what that do did on the track. You don't win every national every moto by just getting lucky yeah. It requires a tremendous amount of and then at the end of his career. I think when he started changing and not not being that gnarly dude and being the racer right. All of a sudden thinks changed. Now look at him now. He's he's the same as the kid that i met back in the early eighties when you look at ricky villa. Po two examples. That i know well. They hated to lose more than they like to win. Do you know what. I mean like when they lost. That's what drove him when they want. It's like i'm sharing. So i think that's common amongst any anybody. That's the winds. Especially if she did anybody. You will call champion i so i just think we're in the era. I i mean obviously look there will be another guy to come around the be like ricky. I don't mean with his records. But i mean i think there'll be some guy. Some point will come and crush everybody right there. Just we kind of just it's ebbs and flows in the sports..

I would say my first film about a wrongfully convicted african american man in winston salem north carolina Mostly man. and you know there was a woman reporter who broke broke some zoom profound stuff. But you know. I would say and then like we did a film about knuckleball pitchers. All men I did a film called in my father's house about a rapper in chicago in his homeless father. Lots of male driven masculine kinds of stories I actually sorta shy. I think i wasn't that interested in women's stories quite honestly i. I don't know why because rain washed by the patriarchy navy.

"I knew michael dorian The he was the son of john dory and I how i mean have gone there. Yes did i go there at that crowd no but A little bit older than he was in. That crowd was younger anyway but So that was what attracted me to that story in particular. I was like new york in the eighties group in their the eighties. And i knew robert chambers and so part of what was satellites. Sorry i just what. What is your perception of back fan. Before all that happened he was just quiet. He was a quiet kind of tall. Maybe a little bit brooding. He was probably sad in person. I i would say But a lot of the guys. I knew he hung out with. Were kind of dark. You know they were going through there was they. Were troubled were a lot of drugs. They didn't come from families that were necessarily stable and and this isn't an excuse for what he did at all. I'm just telling you what my impressions of him were and we hung out pretty soon as friends with a group of friends pretty regularly. I pretty much. I can't quite remember much. You know because he was very quiet but the access we had in the series was based on people that i grew up with an anne as well had gone to college with his high school girlfriend. So who went on to be an actor right. Yes i kind of deep dive on her a little bit after. Yeah yeah yes exactly. So and then survived differences. Similar like we. We were very interested in having giving the women and going and meeting the women and talking to them about their experience with joan. If you want me talk about joan.

"We were on the phone with survivors and sometimes their lawyers and sometimes friends who represented them just talking to a range of women Before we interviewed them. And i think you know we just established from the beginning. This is your story. We just want to help you get it out there. We want to facilitate. We wanna capture it. You know as honestly and profoundly as we can and you are in charge. You're in charge. You say no will ask questions in or you can set boundaries before we even do the interview. Don't ask me about this. And i think that was liberating not just to them. But for us to say we're on the same page. You know enroll in this together. And if i ask you a question two rar too hard for you to raf It's not because you know it. Just let's move on. Let's know that we're doing this together. To to represent the the most accurate and story and again the the reason these women wanted to share their stories. There's a range of reasons but generally they wanted to either make sure that other young people found themselves vulnerable in in situations similar to theirs wouldn't be subjected to such sexual the sexual abuse that they found themselves subjected to They would know what a grooming means. They would understand the their own vulnerabilities and they also wanted to make sure that the the truth was out there. Because for so long you. Jeffrey epstein in in maxwell got away with a lot and many people covered for them in enabled them so this because he had killed himself when we started filming Jeff killed himself. You know this game in opportunity to say what Weren't going to have a chance to say in the court of law in now ultimately who knows what will happen with glenn maxwell will be a trial some of these women not all of them were abused by her but some of them were and they might have that opportunity to make it public You know in the case. God i hope so i mean. Look your your filmmaker. But you're also a human being. And i know for myself. I'm not the best compartmentalize earlier when you do something like this. Like how do you stay. Sane. and not just like. I don't know fold like a into a heap of like rage or depression because it's just watching it. How how do. I even wrap my brain around this. It's funny. I always like you know years ago anne and i did a film called Or horseback which is about this the genocide in darfur in sudan and the images. Were just terrific in the stories in an you know people would say. Oh gosh or we did the boston marathon documentary for. Hbo would say you go to sleep at night. Had i know you know.

"Know i always say about that. Because i don't want people to feel like oh. The alternative is great while things get tough here you know what i mean. I okay fair enough. I'm careful about saying that. Yeah yeah. I mean it's a it's an interesting thing i think it's more than just you know there's some people like my husband's parents are terrified of death and they're both in their eighties and it's like it's gonna happen so i think it's more like it's going to be okay like we want to be here. We want to be with the people we love. But like we're all gonna die is certain and so that when we do. It's not gonna you know unless it's you know you're the guy that just left office this morning you're not going to go to the depths of hell you're promptly gonna you know so i guess that fine line like you said but it that to me. Just felt comforting. I think you know people are like friends of mine. Say like oh isn't scary depressing. Or now i think it's hopeful that i want to create false hope but i think the if you if you give yourself over to the people who've had these experiences for the various episodes there is hope in in their experiences and i think that gives the audience. Hope you know. Because we don't really know i mean you might think you know i don't think we really know and i have plenty. Dr ron's were like. Oh i don't know just watch it and see if you don't feel just a sense of maybe. There's something more that we should like allow ourselves to consider. Yeah again. I said that was the last question. But i'm glad you said that. Because i read my husband and i read this book years ago called proof of heaven. Did you read that or do you know about it. But i heard of it. Yeah yeah and it was by a neuroscientist to look science science science. It's all a bunch of crap. And then he died for like three weeks and he wrote about his experience. And now is the first time that i really was like. Oh my god this is insane because it was from skeptic you know was from someone like this is crazy so anyway. Do recommend that book as well. It's really really interesting. So i wanna move on. I wanna talk about briefly surviving jeffrey epstein on lifetime which i saw Again really well done. That's a brutal story. I mean really really tough how. How did you approach that in terms of talking to survivors. It's you have to i think. Probably m- maybe more than anything that you've done. Although i don't know i would think that that has to be one of the hardest things to approach just to you.

She had placenta previa when she was pregnant. And basically thought you know this is going to end badly for me. And nobody believed or they all thought she was crazy including her husband and she basically did die for thirty seven seconds and experienced. What so many people report when they have those experiences and then sort of retroactively discovered. I think that she had these sort of medium powers or at least the Six cents or whatever you wanna call it. How did you decide. And she was a great storyteller i understand. She was a producer before. How did you decide what stories to include In in this series was really important that the people felt authentic and that they again weren't seeking attention by you know having near the death experience than just But that in telling of the story and sharing their story came from a very deep emotional place that it was it was important for them to share their story because they wanted others to know that they weren't alone that they weren't crazy that they had had similar kinds of experiences. And that's felt genuine to me. Both in stephanie. Arnold and dr. Mary neil who's the the surgeon who is kept under water for more than thirty minutes when when she was kayaking..

"Were allowed to just sort of be there with them and be truthful and that is what really inspired me as a filmmaker than you know sort of as i get older. I'm very interested in visual ways to tell stories when you don't have the whole verite story there when you can't spend hundreds of hours filming with someone you help. How do i. Visually like create. The the feeling. And i think that was a lot of what was fun about surviving. Death is. I got to really be creative with visuals and music and tone And and so and then over the years also working with great people working with great. Dp's and music people in Lighting people I've learned from them to You know ways in which we can get more. I do encourage i think. Filmmakers documentary filmmakers. They you should know what lenses you like. You should know about equipment. You don't necessarily have to be able to shoot but like it's helpful because then you can talk about some kind of lights you on in certain kind of lenses you want to create Which will give you what you want. Yeah that's important understand the tools that you're using the toolbox definitely so what is next for you. So we're doing. So am working with anne on a feature doc for hbo and that has been on a bit of an odyssey In that We started it pre cove it about a year before covid head about inspired by the college scandal a well. Yeah and Then became a film about this musical that had been written about college pressures parallel to the time that the college scandals coming we follow the musical through high schools as sort of a window into these high school. So yeah yeah and in west virginia and then of course covid wiped all that out and shut everything down including our stories that we were building building building to these moments where the kids go to college. Like how's the play gonna come off all that kind of pretty straightforward narrative stuff. And now we're looking at like the sort of post covid George floyd like the impact that has had filming actually in new york city in the bronx and brooklyn well with kids. So that film. And then i'm working on a subpoena film about parole with Jesse sweet so. And then i don't know i'm always looking for stuff. Cool will ricky. Thank you so much great to finally be able to do this. Thank you thank you neck..

"More coming out. And obviously the market itself is getting flooded but for those aspiring documentarian out. There are there any distinguishing characteristics. That you think good documentaries have now. They'll allow them to kind of stand stand out amongst the fray. So now i feel like there's so many series out there and everything you know when it used to be featured docs like hbo or showtime cinemax. Whatever back in the day it was featured docs and so it's like what is the good story that can sustain for an hour and a half or and now it's like what is a story that we can tell over five parts to make you know and i think sometimes it shouldn't be five parts giving sometimes. It should be an hour and a half. You know i think sometimes stories we're getting stretched and there's a lot of pressure on still makers to find something that feels big whereas sometimes the best stories are these small stories. You know some of the films that are out there. Now that are sort of a name kademi. This a film called kunda about two black and white film about farm animals. And it's just this quiet poet poetic film and i think you know what it's doing really well filmmakers. I think we just don't looking for something different now. You never know you never know what's necessarily going ahead Which is why. I think also when you go back to like film trope of like do with this way. Is there like a journey hero story. I just would encourage people to be truthful to the story you know. If it's a palm let it be a poem you know. I always refer who referring to announce a film called iraq in fragments and it really just touched down. James longley film was nominated for academy award just touched on in iraq at the moment during war and like you live with three different. I think it's three different stories for period of time without some super narrative structure. And you just get like iraq in fragments these fragments of that world and that was enough. That was enough. And i think sometimes were Included world like. Wow you know is this gonna is are people gonna care. Is it going to have a life. Are people going to tune in and and unfortunately we have to ask those questions. Because that's how you get funding these days but sometimes it said unexpected little story than unexpected. You know maybe it's the one about truffle hunters this year or or quiet from about time or something that is unexpected in people. Are you know last year. Like the honey. What would they gave the bees. The honey keeper shoot. What was that called. Oh my gosh. It was really beautiful and Again like who. They didn't go in there thinking they're gonna get an academy began. Get kademi awards like you. Just can't go thinking about your audience per se. Have to be true story. I think that's huge last few questions. Obviously in the world of directing and filmmaking. There's a lottery sources a lot of books on the topic. Most of which are not so great for that being said were there any key volumes or resources or or just books that were essential for you and your career either from a business perspective or filmmaking perspective and wasn't certain i definitely would say no about books. I think it was just watching films The like mazel brothers. You know greg. Garden's great gardens justice Films like that or even even an war room or penna bakers films. Or i mean i kinda grew both were even you know. Gimme shelter these old films Which are all very character driven. You know they could just go along with these characters and let the stories unfold and And they were unexpected in that way and they just were filmmakers..

"She spends her own money like she works hard at her job and spends her own money in travels around to these haunted sites and tries to connect and that is what makes her interesting to me makes her feel like her journey. Her searching is authentic and real. Yeah and it's again that the character centric human element of it. All i think is what is so interesting in addition all the supernatural elements. So we have a lot of filmmakers inspiring filmmakers listening. Could you give us a sense of your origin story. How you essentially became a director. Yeah i started really in theater. And i was thinking it'd be more in the acting world of theater And went to graduate school for year and theater and then came out and wanted to tell stories and wanted to be in control and realized that as an actor i would not be in control of my destiny and Through many many jobs in new york working production working at like saturday night live which sounded glamorous but was not at all you know working on the film unit but ultimately documentaries for me as a woman Twenty three year old. I gas twenty. four Was a way to work with france. Re college in a camera that we heat. My friend had camera. Someone you know had sound equipment and we would just go and tell stories and that was for me. The way i could tell a story was to be a documentary filmmaker and not have to necessarily prove especially than in hollywood to be woman like as director. It was much more difficult than i think. Now i think it you know and The documentary filmmakers was was much more open to it and the budgets are lower ultimately. You know you can do a lot on her own can do a lot you in so that that was like my path into it. I mean i hell jobs. And i worked at. Hbo and all this other stuff. But i work on the weekends and at night making my own films. Because i never i always say like if i could paint. I would have been a painter if i could. If i could plant instrument i would have been a musician to me. Making documentaries is is my creative outlet and so when i worked at hbo As i was. I worked on the Autopsy series i as an associate producer and then as a producer of shows rudolph who was really rabbi. Now we had like some either as producer like. She was from harvard and she lasted a week. The by photographs of autopsy issues. Like i'm out But i always wanted to make my own stories. And so i would just do it when i could and you know. Sometimes it took years to make a story and your first feature neglect. Not the children ryan. It was it was. It was a film that i did about a youth program in harlem i had met..

"And they feel duped and then she gives me no defense that had i know that but also That atar being medium because there is so much information out there i mean there were moments like that where it was very helpful to have a character. Go through the doubt to be a skeptic so that we could have those moments of skepticism. We could had those moments of doubt. They came through the story. Bryson as opposed to me having to impose these there were always experts of people for example that people from the society for psychical research in cambridge in the uk. They're the ones that could be talk about skepticism. Through the through the years regarding physical mediums for example So it was helpful. I think you know you want to ask this question. You wanna have some balance that grounded the show in a railway just showing but like you said it didn't seem agenda-driven you allowed those those things that potentially could you know disprove just to emerge naturally through the story which you know as documentarian. I feel like it. All has to naturally emerge from the story agreed. Were there any concepts that That hit the cutting room floor that you really wanted to get in there. We know it's interesting when you doing. Survival it kind of veers into psychic cy kinds of work as well because you know as a lay person getting into an odd like. What's the difference if we study remote viewing or psychic abilities. Why why isn't that part of this kind of a series and and now i fully understand it but lesley was like no. You won't our stories. All are about investigating looking at the possibility of survival after death and side that sort of hugh super human or human powers of being psychic and able to read. Someone's mind or being able to take your mind and remote view. It's not about survival. And so so it really. It took me a while to sort of stay focused on.

"Of the universe. 2021 has started off right where 20 20 left off. Kind of bumpy to put it mildly. But here at least we can take our minds off the turmoil for a few hours. And tonight we have an excellent program in mind for you. You've been reading about this strange object spotted in space back in 2017. Homo Omura is the name that was given and scientists were ready to write that office and interesting but not exceptional piece of space rock. That is until the Harvard astronomer and some colleagues detected problems with that explanation. They think it's an anomaly and could be an expert terrestrial probe sent from another solar system the first interstellar object ever detected, perhaps sent here on purpose to get our attention.

But first Was a stirring and provocative new Syriza a Netflix. Have you seen it? Yet? It's one of the most popular programs on Netflix. Right now. It's called surviving Death, a six part documentary series looking for evidence that life goes on after physical death. The stories told by people who've experienced near death experiences where they die, and then come back. It's powerful stuff. But in another episodes that producers looked for compelling stories of Kids who have memories of past lives. Also looking at ghost hunters and mediums who say that they're able to connect with the other side. Leslie Kean is a journalist, author of the book. We profiled here on this program a few years ago, same title surviving death. And it really did a great job of synthesizing the case for human consciousness, Surviving physical death. Leslie is part of the team that created the Netflix series. She will join us momentarily, and for this first hour, we're also speaking with Ricki Stern, a producer and director of the surviving Death series will dig into these stories and the people behind this hit series.

Normally I'd list a few of them and go over some of the details. But I'm getting gonna let you exploring on your own, because when we have Ricki Stern for this first hour, so I want to get to it.

As a, talk show host like we're little heavy on the daytime talk a little bit you know I think it does make. Great sense in local markets because? You have a specific, local thing that you're. Talking about do you know what I mean that's radio still works but I don't know, I a lot of people have. Tried, it. And. It. Doesn't work Meredith Vieira Katie Kerr Harry, Connick junior canceled canceled. Canceled, yes agreed, agreed agreed. I just think, that just because Kelly Clarkson very. Likable person sure strong personality great personality she's a singer. Let her be a singer singer Thing Singer, singer say normal singer Singer ours your. Thing that's your kryptonite singer, you, certain things But let her do that stay. In your lane we don't, I don't, want to see. Kelly, Clarkson chatting it up with you know. Who, else did. Actually she had a. Somewhat successful on The Wilson. Girl, from Wilson Phillips Brian Wilson's daughter Carney we'll see remember that I mean just I just feel like just because someone has a good. Personality and they happen to sing for a living And, they happen. To be a good interview doesn't mean that they belong on daytime. Talk. That's like putting on Justin Timberlake as a host of a daytime talk. Show it's not necessary Carney was. On from nineteen ninety. Five to, ninety six I thought she was on longer came back those Ricki lake Ricki lake also she had a successful Carney show dealt with issues concerning unruly teenagers hookers this, is the.

Clarkson dune daytime talk thing you are a Grammy award winning. Artist. Let's let's keep her there that's. Just, my opinion, I just, because you, give a, good interview doesn't mean you a. Good interview there are people who. Trained to do that people like yourself Ceelo green. Is returning to the voice oh cool that's. Fun I guess He's only going to be a mentor though he's gonna be Adams mentor the only reason I say that is I can't imagine people aren't. Going to have a problem with. This. Because of that he. Raped charge that was it wasn't a. Charge, actually. It was. An accusation Against him did that totally not. Ever no because they didn't. Have enough evidence wow so you probably didn't hear a whole lot about that but yeah lack of evidence he did plead guilty to giving. This woman a controlled substance which. I. Believe was ecstasy but He denied rumors also that he quit the voice to. Avoid being, fired so he. Will be back the voice is back on Monday September twenty, four th for its fifteenth.

Out with a two dollars and fifty cents roughly reduction in some. See and blasted all over the internet television and radio, and the newspaper that they were reducing our water belt now that just proves to me that. These are. Really dishonest people You talking. About the city of cedar park water department did this to you No no no no no I'm talking about. Austin Dallas do right Well they do I mean there are many many people that have had the skyrocketing water Bill told stories that they call to get some answers and they. Get a rude person or a dismissive person. On. The, other, end, this, just. Not really interested in, helping them yeah Or they don't they just don't call back in a timely fashion but according. To the water department you're happy with them check this out do. Security, keys make computers, more secure well, according to Google the answer is simple yes ever since they, required. Their, employees to use a physical security, key instead of a one time codes in two thousand seventeen, it hasn't had. A single case. Of, an account. Takeover from, fishing now this, security deal the security key go all computer and you type in the code your password right well this would be like like a like a little memory stick that you stick. In your computer a digital key it's a. Key This is? Not, really a dog, let's just like a. Little. USB stick like a little memory stick you stick in its key the house you to access that computer and apparently Google. Says that is a much more safe way to go they haven't.
