One of the reasons you the media started was i wanted to figure out a better way of getting and keeping people's attention. Brief moments of attention could of course be achieved by spending money on one of happening such as advertising. Send postmates cupcakes. But i knew that had to be a better way of keeping people in the loop and letting prospects i existed letting people see the steps you took and documenting that it was far from an easy journey can really help with making you more relatable and building that trusted relationship when it comes to building more powerful backstory.

Teen Wolf Special

"I Patrick Gilmore Dale Volker Thirty Universe and Trenton on reese the theories dot com. And you're listening to talk to my teen will special as the season finale airs tonight. I have conversations taped roundtable sessions at San Diego comic con starting us off as Holland. Roden plays Lydia Morton. Does she have any idea about this? Season's storyline loves to let us know because he has this thing as well. I want you to be surprised what happened like no and so it's funny that That we do. We do. Take it as it comes. Essentially I mean ultimately but But you know he gave me a little bit the beginning as Jesse Know. How soon you know. I know you're not aware that there. Europe's growth events exist but ask there is more. It's got very little might make crazy mental breakdown going and I get it forty two minute doses. So we take it yet. We almost of the movie that we shoot three episodes at a time through always skipping different parts of this basically twelve hour movie that we six months out of the year. Scan up until I think on link november-december week doing it does get tricky. It definitely does you. Just know three scripts looking on. And you don't have time leading you. Keep people organized. I find financing. How motion -Ly Taxing has this season? Been for you. It is funny because the previous works have always been mostly involved drama and other show that I was reading regularly apart accidents and it was very comedy. Tamaz about road and I played this sort of from improper ahead WTOP girls who were the school same thing. Same archetype and it was funny because up until then all in between an interim I played these sort of awkward broken down needs victimized girls and it was quite funny to go back to this from improper thing and the Queen Bee so to speak and then to have this season where it's almost a hybrid of the two of what I've done. My career has been a blast. It hasn't taxing. Yeah personally I for those kind of things for me as an after tax. I said the other day twelve times. Over don she talks about Lydia's breakdowns. The cease definitely definitely. I've said that she in having her. Great Dancer breakout because ironically the more non human is. She thinks surrounded with oranges expert and I consider perspective. I guess as far as what is her what is considered ball and And Yeah I think I think you're definitely more human side of her. Who See who they are and she's at the Connie was announced a third season. We'll have twenty four episodes off. Yeah I think it's GonNa be like it's almost like a normal showdown where it's going to be the majority. I feel runs on pretty little liars. And they shoot when they're not so we're excited. It's so funny with are not sickened ski season. Three twenty four anwr in Los Angeles. Like you don't care about the last part we deal. Oh my gosh yes even pneumatic for so so long. I've had more actresses than you know meals like it's ridiculous And so it's yes. It's for that but we're very happy to be home with their territory. You know we know that we might be moving around a lot for the rest of our careers I e lives but it works for Senate. Were you happy or sad that Lydia didn't turn out to be the monster well intense so a monster maybe gas maybe and so yeah I I I was. I was personally happy. I didn't have to have a tale Although although there were Boeing Arrows comes of the game. We had that first season five four hundred games. Everyone's really really really have you seen mark clubs movie just There might be a Canada like thing you know room roaming their streets over there so yeah it's it's been fun to see. Colton weather fan but I'm glad that I hadn't I already in two and a half hours makeup chair. I don't want to add. Another hour of the show really really went out very strongly logic that they were focused and were they use. It's not it's not every single sort of thing that you could live forever into the next. There's definitely a strategy with dealers and I love how he took coulter's and together so it's not so much inter such analyses as much suspect this linear progression of one type of thing because they'll never be Mars and so even though I tweeted one night. Become a vampire on on teen wolf and then I put a yeah vampiric. No It's two a m program and so yes it's It's been fun that he is so focused in one thing and we're obviously like European mythology which was of so. It's it's interesting. Will there be any more upcoming creatures or beast I would I would assume I would assume south there's different And I would think most mortals can't back like shots from what? I could talk about my best special kate last year. And we'll see what happens here hails and like a week and a half one next up is Colton Hayes who plays Jackson you chats about. When he found out about his ark the season I knew in the first season. How about that one before? Keeping a secret and line so yeah. I've been line you guys. It's so it's so weird. It is almost as if actor notes weird but I've in line you guys for years now I might. I still might not even be the camel. It could be an allusion. It could be a Lydia's dreams but now he can be manipulated and could be a threat to his friends attention because you notice that every time. There's almost of Jackson in there when he tries to kill someone or when something comes along and then he he bust out of a window or something. So I mean you guys are GonNa be really shocked the WHO the puppeteers and it's not you expect so it's just GonNa be so funny. I can't wait to see what you guys think. Whenever you whenever you find out. He tells us about his makeup process. It took six and a half hours. And I'm allergic to it. So I'm allergic to the silicone. So I did it for. I did five times and my face. I should've had the photos ready. I'm welts all over. My whole entire body raised welts birds and they didn't go away for like a week. So that the same thing happened to Brad Pitt. And Benjamin Button so Yeah the skin. I don't know it's weird but you didn't laugh. Thanks for piecing. What was it like when you first saw the worst thing? It sucked terribly but only to wear it until wore five times in them spayed. Had A stunt guy come in wear all the makeup for me so but this the thing is everyone's like you're a cop out cop but we had no time to shoot anything as it is and there's no. There were so many times where I was filming a scene while Jackson is the Kenema was filled with something else. And I can't do stunts. I can't do backflips and stuff. I can't do back. I can't do that off someone else. Yeah it was I hated it but it looks so bad so bad. They use a lot of the lot of the the same footage whenever the Canada kind of opens his mouth and that is me But most of course the stunts they did a bunch of different close ups in different scenario indifferent behind different backdrops so they have it in stock but it was fun it was just really really tight and constricting and not fun but it looks amazing. It hurts your teeth. Always changed so trying to put him in and it would just hurt in the contacts or the context of this bid accepted. Put them inside eyelids on both of the. It's funny because you guys probably saw Spiderman. There's a Canada yeah. Now how much of Jackson's biology plays into the puppeteer and what's happening definitely. What's what's the reason why. Turn into this instead of has to do with more more of a personality. Trait as opposed to violent bite biological trait. But then you find out the worst spoilers I probably just gave them big spoil right. They're also it's a biological trait. That Jackson turns into Canada anyway but no The the puppeteer is. I don't know I'm not going to the next question. He chats about his phase of the season. I D- Seven eight nine or upon my favorite episodes 'cause I get blow crazy and just be kind of even more angry than I already am all the time. So it's very therapeutic. So twenty seven in the finale is GONNA kill you. All your are really upset. Does anyone really care that has to school has been destroyed? Due to Jackson Literally Obliterating Library the best part is. I don't think we even clear that up. And they an Arjun caught it on tape so if he did he sneak in and steal the footage a fight with the the the roof glowing in but I mean in Wolf Lan. Anything can happen. You know they can cover it up so yeah crystal. Reed joins US replays alison urgent and starts off talking about her hair color change. My Dad would never let me cut my hair always really long at that. Made me after Crystal Gayle. Who really anyways so I cut it recently. We'll after we wrapped and then I was like it's summer we have a six month hiatus. I'm GonNa do something different from my hair's really dark An enlightened to the very very strange like orange red colour so it's been a process trying to get back to look something natural. Yeah but but but my here's has already relate. You might as well keep it like that until you have to back so she chats about filming the next season in La about filming away from everything. Because you're so focused all the time But also you know my dobbs here and my houses here in my friends are here and I know where to go on the weekends if I WANNA get away. And she soon very feels great to be supportive to have excuse. Matab some search support system that we're lacking in Atlanta so. I'm really excited about it. What about where? Her character is in relation to her family. Love about Alexander's that she trusts everyone. She hasn't found that sort of inner voice. That's like no that's bad which you know is kind of. It's good and bad but So she she trust. Oh I mean I. She's like maybe not but you trust them even though she shouldn't trust them and she trust her dad and she and her mom And I think that she is willing. She's willing to fight for whatever she believes his right so You know she knows that people are dying and she knows that it's this horrible creature. And she wants and she knows that. Not only that but Jackson and Lydia. There's their lives are at risk. And you've got to do something about that. Those your friends you loved. They might die so she will take up arms against any anything for that and then also an episode nine. Something really really heavy happens for a family. That's GONNA completely change the world upside down. Is it cool to take a character like this down darker paths? I feel like especially for me as an actor because I feel like I'm always not a bad thing at all but I always sort of like going to casting fighting the girl next door thing and that's a great thing to play but it's not the most fun for me so when Jefferson was going to happen and I was like oh by that so exciting because we see her. Be something completely different than I. As an actor liked to transform into all those physical things and what kind of physical training digital I took archery classes. And we're really closely with our stunt my son Coordinator who's really really patient and the majority of my own stunts. I get to work with these Chinese ring daggers. Which were incredible saw. And he's like I love him. He calls it laying people. Because you actually like when you're doing it you actually would fillet some And they're really fun but they're super dangerous so I had to learn that for a long time and also just like just saying in physical shape. You was a lot of running and stuff like that but I love during Lanston because I feel like the more physical you can be in character the better does like I could just come off of a really heavy lunch and have to do the just ran by miles so I would. I would literally run around her stage because I wanted. You would be out of breath. Then you'd be sweating and all these things so I was like this one. I think I think when it comes to physicality but I don't use my own. I don't use like say you know way breaks up with me. I don't really use my boyfriend breaking up with me last week for because I feel like for me. That's fine that works for a lot of people. What for me I would. I've done it before it gets really dangerous because you know especially when you're deal things on the show like death I would have to think of someone dying to do that. Constantly over and over and over is not very good for my psyche so ages. I like to instead of that I would create the situation and he's imaginary work and do everything that I can to make sure that I am in the moment. Show took tossed it. Does it really does the I I mean we? We've I've shot scenes out of his scripts but I've never read and I'm like well welcomes before this or after this because I can't access. She discusses the way the series a shot three episodes at a time. We blacks shoot three because of money so we would like so say like one two three all the scenes that are in high school we would shoot into weeks so we can be shooting for three and then the beginning of the season on the same day and it is tough but what. I do is I am. I like Hupa time line like it's not very creative but I like physical online and then just mark done before so I can you know. Go back and forth. Make sure online. And how much fun is it to work with D Maze? Who Plays Your Mom Victoria? She's super intense and she's the most giving actor and she's always like Oh my God is that okay and I feel like I wish I would have worked with. I got to work with more of the season but We'll see what happens. And but it's great. She's she always gives a lot and always very willing to try different things over. Alumnae rings yet is it's really cool. I love it I was. It was Just just sent to me so I I. I love when he mixed metals like silver and gold. Anyway sorry thank you. Thank you at our table next. Is Tyler Hotel Lane chats about Derek? Big Move in an episode that just aired. And how does that impact his character? Oh I plead self defense. He was stabbed in the back swimming. Yeah what do you expect We know it's definitely Throws a wrench in things I think for me the biggest thing when when I when I read that was that I'd always kind of seen this mutual respect between Derek and Arjun. Jr Boards Character Just because they feel like Derek season as the honorable hunter who actually does play by the rules and and he does things the right way. And I think that you know Arjun Waseem Derek as a threat but not militias threat. The way to the Alpha wasn't season one. He's not intentionally killing people so I feel like that will definitely Put a riff in that relationship. I feel like that. That respects Maybe lost So I think that'll be a big issue and it you know who knows what that does. The origins character. It does make him someone who is as eventual as as Gerard and obviously have an effect on Allison so It'll be interesting to see how far it pushes them really. He discusses his characters Alphaville role thing in season. One jozy Derek. As he is the Omega he is the Lone Wolf. He doesn't have anybody so I think Scott coming into the picture. Not as part of his past as an ally was that I sense of I guess you could say Brotherhood in a way So now that he has the power to create a pack I think he yeah. I think he's rebuilding that sense of community in that sense of family He's really kind of like living in exile. So it's You know to have that those kind of relationships in your life. I think that's that's something that the show is really great at is finding things that are relatable to everybody Even if you know even with the character of Derek who was you know in season one so far from someone you really could probably relate to your living burnt down house in the woods by himself to each his own But but I think you know now seeing someone reaching out and trying to get that that That close community of people that you can trust. It's important to him so that's definitely going to be something that out. Drives him through out throughout the season and throughout the rest of the show. Does he feel that his family can coexist with humans in this town. I think he does. I think it does. I think I think like I said I don't think intentions of ever been militias. I've never seen you know throughout these scripts. I've never really seen a time. Where he's had anything against humans I know we talked a lot about him. Kind of being compared to a Magneto In season one of the fact that you know he's not it's not that he's a villain He's trying to protect his own kind In humans aren't really the threat I think to him. It's the origins as the hunters. So I think to him. He's still sees them as a threat to be eliminated if they can't be dealt with so Again I think that respect between him and urgent will be a big issue. I feel like maybe that was his chance to Reconcile and actually be able to live peacefully so we'll see carryover into next season. I'm I when I see script one. I hope so. I hope so. I hope it'll be. I think it's an interesting story line and I I'm definitely excited to see what Jeff has in mind. He chats about his character's relationship with Scott though there's definitely there's a conflict I think I think for Derek. It's always been you know it is. It's very much like our relationship off said h other and it all but but in the fact that it's like when I see Tyler and deal and they feel that my little brothers and so I think there is that sense of Derek Scott. It's like it's watching. It's watching your little brother. Grow Up In come into his own Become a man really so you're seeing him You know develop his own sense of morals and responsibility and the things that he believes in so I think he has a respect for Scott but I also think that he he can see The innocence of Scottsdale and the fact that he may not may not be looking at everything from a broader perspective. So I think they've always been allies out of necessity So as long as there's this conflict I think they'll have a reason to stay together But I think Derek recognizes the Scott as both an ally and a potential threat you know depending on which way Scott ends up leaning towards and what. He's more excited about the possibility of expanding the pack. I think he's he's looking for people that he knows that he believes. This actually will help. Because we've always said that you know Scott and the show sees the bite as a curse especially in the beginning Something you have to deal with whereas Derek is always viewed it as a gift said the first episode it is. It's a blessing to have strength and the ability to heal and live longer. And all these things so I think he finds people that He genuinely believes benefit and We'll want this and I'll the he wants to force anybody into it He has seen what it's done to Scott and put him through So I think he's GonNa continue to look for people that will help his cause the he can also feel like he's doing a favor for so giving a giving a gift to Wolf Lady and Derek Future. Maybe he has to find someone who's already a Wolf Lady. I don't know I don't know This season this season I mean I can never say yes or no all same. Maybe But I will say maybe it'll be a bigger priority for later rumors. Zero is True or false. So let's see. This seems like a challenge to play. This guy's really has to walk. That line really can't go either way. Yeah it's fun It's definitely a challenge and I think that's why it is fun because You know anything that's anything that's difficult or challenging for lack of a better word is always interesting and it's always makes things more complicated but that's what makes coming to work every day. Very Fun and In New and you you get to kind of its WANNA go certain scenes. You can look at and it'll be very clear that okay today. This is kind of you know this this site Adair again today. This is the other side of Derek. We're continuing to play duality. And there's some days where it's like honestly it could go either way I think those are the most exciting resume. Today's you know you're GONNA show up on set and really explore and say let's play both sides in the scene and see which one works and then it's up to jeff in the editors and everybody else decide which one works best for the story at that point but Those are always very fun play. So it's it's a very cool character. You don't ever feel like you're locked into one thing. The other south about the finale this year season finale Really big for everybody Sets up a lot of different conflict going into season three And I think I mean I know how excited people we're going into Season Two with the way we ended. Season One I think it'll be even greater anticipation for season three. Just because there's so many so many unexpected turns that happened in the last few of those things that are set up that I think we'll be anxious for season three so hopefully we don't make them wait as long as lifetime. If we do our he really bad But we'll do our best to get a vagus because we've gone so we'll have we'll last longer next. We'll be around for twice as long here. You're also gives his thoughts about the move When they said twenty four episodes in La it was amazing. loved Atlanta. We had a great time. There it's a great city But I think to be somewhere for a year. It's not it's always nicer to be closer to home early. We kind of all have our lives in La. So it's nice to be there and Yeah it's nice when I go home after this week and I hang posters on my wall not freak out that I'm leaving in three months ago so now how much of his characters are busy. No I know the ARGUMENT CHARACTER FROM SEASON. One of the two but as far as going into season three now I mean we. We discussed a few things but I think the fun thing about working on the show is that we kind of we kind of come into what's going on. Just the audience does. It's very much like a scripted script kind of basis. So we'll get hints here and there but they don't like to give too much away to us as we go so I like to see like see more conflict. I I enjoy the idea of Derek. Getting into trouble and and you know needing to find a way out. I think the struggles always more interesting than the. The easy road is success so it'll be interesting to see if that happens in the desert. We really fun to play like. I said we're kind of like the audience when we do this. They really don't tell us anything. So we were taking bets on. Said who the was and who was this year so a master which will remain nameless. So yes this is surprised you will appreciate it. Thanks so much. Have a good time special. Thanks to MTV tonics time this is Tony to Lonzo becomes from With my name is Sean Astin. The Best of my knowledge belief and I play Sam wise gambling. Don Monahan Klay Mary or Marriott. Hotel this is billy buoyant. I plead pippen and load up the rings. And you're listening Sifi Talk.

Please I I read an early copy of it an early well. I kind of a finished draft but close to the handwriting It's a really fantastic book and I'm not somebody who is a speculative fiction often. I I want to like it but it's often not it. It doesn't often draw me in this book I had an binder and I was carrying binder around with me everywhere. It was a trapper keeper. Yeah he's more of a seven seals Kinda got brimstone. There is a decent amount of fire brimstone and child sacrifice in my book. So yeah that's true. And we're firing on all cylinders. This week we really got ringers. All over the place. Not The ringers. Like in your your trapper keeper reprinted out and kept his book but very similar so we're could ever find it. You said Amazon Amazon again. Either kindle or paperback format scab among the stats right. It's the only one of that name. Surprise surprise yes I am so so my My my email is gab among the stars seven Twenty-three Twenty-third. It was a bad day. Wasn't it talk. We don't talk about that okay. Then we are going to talk about a tragedy this week and probably we're going to break this up into two. We were talking. We are looking with this. The Waco is something that is a huge story. So we're going to break it up this week. We're GONNA talk the Colt and the founding and the the the methods to that next week when you talk to actual siege and what happened Excuse me Colt. I don't know if I would use that term here. I'm pretty sure that this is in the book With the colts I saw the picture of them in the encyclopedia. As as as you know he celebrates the entire refunding wagonloads encyclopedias. Yes he does so Waco David crash the branch Davidian seventh day. Adventists are all this stuff kind of gets gets worked tin together. So what I'm getting at buckle up for hilarity because this is a funny story and it's uplifting your knees and if you love the government everything it's just really It's I don't know man. There's so much the story but the siege. That is so famous that we're going to talk about was February. Twenty eighth through April nineteenth breath of nineteen ninety-three twenty six years ago right now one of my favorite years. What why just so much fun stuff happened that year Janet Reno Burst I onto the scene Waco? Of course Rodney King testifies in court the Great Blizzard of ninety three strikes the eastern United States killing one hundred and eighty four the west Memphis emphas- three were tried and convicted. The bomber is mailing crap. Don't ask don't tell the great flood of ninety-three happened the World Trade Center bombing. The list goes on. You are seriously thought. Why is I don't understand why you allow him on the show? Still thank you. aww Jesus Christ. It's more like if I don't I'm probably going to have to unleash him on society. Heidi he would be a very effective cult leader himself. Do you think he's the lamb that could break the seven zero. Perhaps hey break. Don't steal my lines. You guys remember the Waco siege happening yet so I talked to a producer Lisa. She she's aware of it but she doesn't really have a lot of memories of it. This was a big thing. I remember off of it and I remember for whatever reason that tank an instead of a gun had that battering ram like ramming ramming into the wall and it looks like the wall is almost paper because of the force of it and just kind of crumbles. Well they also they tore down a bunch of cottages that they had there uh and made that compound so I'm sure it was probably kind of shoddily built anyway and there were tunnels under all that. And everything you're saying the Messiah oversaw something that was shoddily built. Well you're you're busy being the the new lamb. He's got those spiritual wives. You gotTA understand. They take a lot of time. You know what falls I in the new messiahs coming building codes built You GotTa Lotta Union going over there. Hey you know you can turn water in the wine but sixty inch between studs is falls by the wayside. Well John I. I imagine that you're probably regretting coming on this. You Know I. I remember the the siege as well. I remember because one of the rednecks from our school told me a joke. That didn't understand. He said what's Waco stand for. And I said I I don't know he said we ain't coming out and I didn't. I was at that moment. I was like what I what does that mean so then I went and I asked my parents and they told me it was going Yeah John was for those of you. Don't know grew up together. We're very close friends. I think I know who told you that joking. I'm picturing it in my mind and it has neck. Oh No neck Joan de crazy this story. Though it's it's so infamous because it was. I think it's safe to say so. Poorly managed and executed by our government the FBI Janet Reno. You Know Bill Clinton everyone that that had fingers on it kind of just goes man in so many people died because of it many women children innocence as well as officers. poops killed some kids as the saying goes. That's not saying that it should be no no Kevin. Yeah I think you you were right about him now. I I've been right the whole time for rile. Why put up with him? My bumper is he is he the originator of your bumper God He didn't have anything to do that did he. I mean because if so I would like to. Maybe talk to him after the show. We're going to have a good talk. He's he's GonNa WanNa talk to you about his new religion that he's going to be blessed for yellow. Seventy six people including children died during the siege and fire at Mount Carmel. Mount Carmo was the location of their compound and before we get into the whole siege and tragedy. Let's talk this week. The branch Davidians and how all that came about offshoot of the seventh day adventists. We talked about that Do you know who has seventh day adventists today no Ben Carson really. Yeah and what was it. The the Egyptian pyramids were for rain put his grain in there. Yeah well I don't know if I need to tell you guys this you might be confused with the the branch Davidians aren't a groovy party. Time off shoot of the I say. Advantageous is adventists is how they say it. Isn't it at Cintas. Yeah branch Guess what I already said it. It's religious religious this cold. There's that many of them so we're not transposed play whenever someone would go into the Church would it every time it's like you're entering a CVs. I made they checked your pockets to to make sure you had a gun but the thing is like so many Eh also fun wants. This wasn't in times group. This was very much A. This is the type of group that I think of. When I think of poltergeist the guy from police come child come with me I get scared? Except for he wasn't a rock band and he banged a lot of broad so brent can you give me an example of some some happy non in times colts. That just think things are going to keep going and it's going to be golden forever. sebok has a pimp vestry Astra's yeah right like like I can. There are probably colts. Like what are they talking about. The guy from Thirty seconds to Mars. What's his name? actor Jared Leto. He's like They're saying starting a Colt. Oh having dressing in white robes and talking to people on a on a beach and you can go see. So you're saying he grows tired of writing nickel and dime science fiction and the way to make AAC real money is to start a religion. That is the best way it's it's going to be called journalists. Let us yeah. They're gonNA excuse me guys. You'RE GONNA be my Sologne level my so-called instead of myself guys can we please oscar-winner Jared Leto. Okay there you go thank you. Don't be a joker can get out of here in the quote suicides. The big the big thing about this book revelations like we said Brian Lamb of God stuff. Jesus coming the end is nigh. It started back in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine by this guy named Ben Roden as an offshoot of the Davidian Seventh Day Adventists Church and they practice some strict shit shit under his rule stuff like the Sabbath and the seventh day. You know you keep that holy abiding dietary laws of the Old Testament. No caffeine cloven hooves stuff. That's tough I mean. I knew all the blood out of the animal before I eat in. I mean all the plus get all of it fun for for religious reasons. Why not go? Yeah so then. We got in nineteen twenty nine. Victor who teff or hotel came up with the shepherd's rod idea and this was a prophecy that he was a divine Vine Messenger of God. Boom been believed that the guy that were talking to Ben Road and he believed it and they believe that on October twenty second of of eighteen forty four God. The father Jesus moved from the throne on high from which they are in you know judging everyone in the universe to the most holy place the heavenly sanctuary in order to fulfill the Anti Typical Day of Atonement. This is their wording. That I'm just using here. Were and they were to go through the books of records in order to judge the the people's deeds to determine their rewards or punishments. That means they left the throne on high and came to Earth. I decided to point out that October. Twenty second is John and do Lee's birthday. Thank you October. Twenty second eighteen forty four yes. He's very old Tosseh. He claimed that his job was to gather. And this is a number. You all heard one hundred and forty four thousand people. People from whom the book of revelation say will be saved from God's wrath at the end of the world so he needs to find these people and these group together getting together prophesyzing. That this this world would be restored the Kingdom of David and Palestine and who founded the davidian seventh day adventists changes named David. Because that's what you did and began his quest in Mount Carmel. That is the place that became famous right outside of Waco Texas at Mount. Carl makes me think a little a bit of like a place that would maybe be in candy. Land if you're after you make it through gloppy area and then you go through the forest next up Mount Carmel. You're on on it. That sounds like guts crag agro agro fucking delicious. So what was the the this investigative work of fighting who is worthy to be the the the ones to go to heaven so to speak has to begin with those who are already dead in order to decide who was to come up in the resurrection of the Saints and those who were to later come up in the resurrection of the wicked. So say your prayers. Here's an easier vitamins. Exactly that's right brother who's brother very importantly they also teach our dot. Whatever you WANNA call that? Eventually the judge would pass ought to those who were living in order to determine who would be translated without seeing death at Christ's second coming meaning no longer. Was it going to be from the dead and this this this intangible God someone on Earth was going to have that power living person and these branch Davidians saw that that lamb of God is as a person was going to hold those powers and those would be destroyed by the brightness of his coming as they put it the the rest of the the people and obviously that is a more serious note that is a perfect backdrop for an opportunistic individual to Insinuate nuate themselves into that position. Man I tell you what Messiah Complex is a hell of a thing you know. And that's one until I was like nineteen the I got better. No Shit now called better so Roman. He told the seventh day adventist church. Sure that the rod that the judgment has passed from the dead to the living that whole. That was what they called it the dead. Now it's the living. The person who's making the decisions is is a live and on earth. That was going to be on twentieth of October. Nineteen fifty five. He tells them that. Boom that's like a power movies like give me the power. I'm that'll be able to do this. didn't exactly work out. We'll get into that a little bit. What yet road died in October of seventy eight? We're skimming through some of the the the he details before we break them down his wife. Lois and son George then led this act until the emergence of as we know him. David Koresh in the mid eighties. He wasn't David Koresh del. Time hit a much better name before. Yeah Old Vernon and I just love that. The name sounds the guy that would have made the Waco joke to you. Yeah it was actually a guy named named Vernon Ano- neck. No no no next so they just handed it over two good older and oh no no no. He took it with force in a gun battle. You Are Evil Eagle so gun battle. Ensues police arrest both George Roden and Koresh but get this and this is all just. We're we're painting a picture where we're going to break this down. Neither was convicted of charges from that fight. Ah Roden though was imprisoned for contempt of court and while road was in jail for other reasons which we're going to crush paid back taxes on the compound that was is in dire need of them. I can't wait to talk about what they fought over in court. It's a pretty intent. We're GONNA gotta get to that and it is delicious so cold. There was just a real quick overview Strict religious following the things with leader picks picks and chooses who has saved. And who isn't that was the power that they were saying this person as his power so he was unhappy with you he could say You're not saving more asked you. I'm sure there are checks ex- imbalances though. They just always are in election election cycles. Your Diet and all parts of your life are strict Structured and ruled over with all these rules and that's an important thing to the people you know they it's not all Koumba is and and love making for. The people aren't made him. Hey look he just had to get those twenty four something or others but you know thinking about this so you surround yourself with these people. Someone's in control troll and that control grows and grows and grows and talking about earlier. This Messiah Complex is a hell of a drug when people. I don't even think people at times realize that they're starting the Colt Colt. Until it's a full must be yes very intoxicating to the point where you don't even realize I well when you're in the middle of it. You're just like this is you. Don't understand and I WANNA make sure that we riff on a little bit From a mental health perspective the Eerie Similarities of multiple failed artists. Who went on to start colts? We can talk about that. Well you know you're going to. That's a an interesting thing. Failed All artists from Hitler to Manson to this to that. And Yeah it's There's a lot of I don't know where that breakdown is. But that's gotta be a specific psych. A key type thing. I have a theory with no data to support it whatsoever. Elvin you're in the right place right. Good how do people fall into this talking about. Yeah so you have the Messiah Complex Right on one end where somebody who. Maybe not at first wasn't going for that but then they see. Oh my God these people are actually under my sway. And now I will the people fall for. That's what I want to know is I get people These must be people who are really looking for something in their lives. And it's weird. It doesn't so people assume assume. Oh these are all people that had tenth Grade Education and there are certainly some but That whole existential wholeness soul. I it extends to everybody graduates. Everything were in this like with people that were something missing is is an interesting impeded knows barriers. I mean a part of something and as a former fundamentalist as we talked about on sad times. The you know you you really want answers and colts tend to give answers. They don't really encourage questions but by God they will give you an and they'll give you answers and it'll be a crisp in two years from today. This will happen. This will happen. So it's like a a black and white view of the world plus co-leaders another thing that that we ended talk about but I think is true are very charismatic. Oh Yeah and Vern Vernon was also a charismatic. Gentlemen it's like it's like I'm a horrible gentlemen. But Dali's everyone wants to go back in time and go back and kill Hitler. That's Silverton Devil. What if I get back there you just weaves a web allies is and he talks? Oh good Lord like you're not supposed to say but he was a good talker making everyone says oh but he was such a good talker. The thing about Vernon is he actually was dyslexic and was not actually a particularly skilled reader but he had an identity memory and could just wax poetic Crayon on. I mean whole books of scripture. That's a great. That's a great point. Let's let's go to break real quick when we come back. Let's talk earn Vernon Wayne Howell. And how he became David Koresh. We're GONNA do that Kevin. Did you have mentor. No I just hold on a I. Don't trust it to that next on hysteria fifty one the front her. You're growling used angry. Maybe you're just you're love. Colts love him as much as Vernon Wayne Howell No I did not dedicate my life to them I don't know this guy knows. Well that's good. I think Brennan was born aren't in Houston taxes on August seventeenth. Nineteen fifty-nine That's not when David Koresh was born. His mom was the ripe old age of fourteen fourteen. Fifteen so fired up real quick you were talking about this. He was intelligent but he was dyslexic and he had that that that picture memory he remember anything but because he was dyslexic and it was back. Then guess what his nickname was Mr Riccardo. Oh that's what they doc call him and he claims this has never been put but he said he was obviously made fun of he said at eight he was gang raped by other boys at his school. and that confirmed Bonnie Sue. Clark the mother she was fifteen she was nonexistent issues. A high school dropout. He was raised by his grandparents so his yes oh she. He couldn't afford to raise him so the grandparents kept him. Most though side note Bonnie Sue stabbed to death in January of two thousand and nine by her sister that is true what Yeah No. It's Lewis Louis staffer thousand nine. Yeah by her sister. Wow I did not. That's news to me. I didn't know that CBA coming in with the the the facts back uplifting his bumper should be. Wake me up before you go go. I'd rather just leave him. Robots it as a childhood memorize quotes sections from the Bible and people look back at it. They said he would Give these quotes and saying but he was just looking for attention. Yeah he was just wanting people he didn't really understand fact he's actually become a Christian born he was twenty two when he actually Really got into the church. He dropped out of school and the grade at sixteen and again People say that bowling he get out of here Mr Retarded but even With a horrible bullying. Woody also go away for hours at a time and pray like he was really into that or read so the thing is there's this message is out there. He whipped I. He did turn to religion. I at first began to the Southern Baptist turned seventh day adventists and they say that he was born again on at age. Twenty two now what that looked like I don't know I think that that might have been an excuse of just getting away from people as a young age they said because the also light a lot no me did not and might John. I mean as far as like you know things like saying you know. They don't know things didn't always ask. No I'M GONNA go ahead and say that most of it's probably bullshit. Well now okay maybe not most. No no no no no no no. He's saying yeah speaking of Bullshit. Oh the seventh day adventist. They had some issues with them and so they kicked him out talk they fellowship he was for our beliefs and lifestyle. That's actually a quote from Shirley burden of the seventh day adventists world headquarters disc's fellowship for bizarre beliefs and lifestyle and which sent him to the doorstep Mount Carmel Actually he came. There's a handyman looking for work. And and not only that though yeah he was a Rockstar. You're damn right. He was a rock and roll star. Now that might be putting it a little heavy handed. He played music. You know I listened to him. He didn't have bad voice really will actually heard some of his a couple of the I watched a couple documentaries. Nadim playing music sound. Just later he played at a band at the at the compound right and they play all the time to copy was interesting they were always doing things are making money. Yeah Helen. Guns selling guns legally and they had a gun dealer in the gross. Who really liked him? All the local people see but again a US. Probably the extremely charismatic right. You know there are a little crazy in. They smell like Pachulia but you know they know and he he also also though was trying to not only make it in music but he also tried to make his fortune and fame in Hollywood is well from what I understand really. Yeah and then was spurned by by that. And then that's when he kind of came back into the fold so we were talking about that quote from Shirley burn that he was kicked out for Speaking against the sanctity of family he was a polygamist. West is one of the things that that she's getting there. Clearly that others beside Jesus could lead people to spiritual forgiveness. That's the thing we're talking about where we're getting to that harder harder branch Davidian Talk. They'd come up with. Guess what the person's going to be here on earth they're going to make those things calling himself Vernon Jezreel borrowing from scripture reference to the binging one. So anyway. He's at Mount Carmel. He gets there. The branch Davidian compound every good Colt As we know they need a compound. Oh yeah a layer one might say oh like we said and he's not just. There's a handyman. He's a rock and roll a AFICIONADO and Kevin. If I remember him celebrate his entire discography right right he is a I in my mind. Reprehensible horrible a liar and to degree charlatan but he really could wail. You said You'd like him. You said the Beatles could almost live up to him. I'm going to go and stop doing this. Joke you motherfucker. I heard him on Austin city limits. One Fuck you Brent. Hey Hey I'm only repeating what you say that shut your mouth. Don't run with words so he moved there in eighty. Ah He moved there in eighty one eighty two. There's a little bit conjecture. It's a seventy seven Acre compound outside Waco Texas and Vernon in EH power. Move this heavy power move. Yeah he starts banging the lowest. The former leader's wife excusing her. She's in her late sixties early seventies. No no she seventy seven years old and he's in his late twenties so I thought he so the the wife of former former leader. Ben Roden Banging Lois Roden seventy seven years old on a seventy seven Acre ranch. Well hot and he starts claiming he's getting prophecies from God and like any cult leader and training should boom. Those are power moves. All of those power moves now. Here's here's the problem. Lowest had a son. George an old Georgie. Like this at all because he's co running said religious cult and he's got no need aid for a Stepdad. No no especially not one. Who's probably younger Lois? If she dies Jersey wants to lead he's the heir apparent to the davidian thrown but spoiler alert overnight and he wants to be the leader. You know he sees this as this is his opportunity to to take over over she starts giving Vernon David. I'M GONNA keep calling Vernon because he still Bernard too. Because that's a staunch chain. Change is still the time she starts giving them more and more power against Georgia's will I guess I should you do you think that she a Really had feelings for him I think she liked the attention and like getting banged. And it probably I know that sounds dirty but it probably. We made her feel like a a person again. You know okay where there's a will there's a way and who's to say she wasn't just a fucking bearcat our cat in the bed. I mean you you know you slap some Louis down. And she's ready to go. I hope George Wooden say that they as the around Waco they said that all lowest she could suck start a highly and you know that's just the way they can't you say so. She had had a chandelier that she was hanging from A. She started giving him power like she's letting him preach let him teach the people and by eighty seven. There's a rift so good old vern leaves any moves to Palestine Texas but the thing is this rift. which was? We're GONNA talk about a lot of people. Taking his side so a lot of the Fowler is didn't like George they move with him to Texas to to Palestine and they're living in trailers and crafts bosses. They got their gates with them. Yeah and so what do you do eventually when you WanNa do you WanNa get back you want to take control your storm. The place in a gun fight ensues but get this guy's y you you storm your old place. You need as much as you want to do it. You need good reason. I was reflecting on that the only reason I would storm a religious compo would probably be if I thought the leader was zooming dead bodies in promising to bring back to life. So so there's there's two versions to it and it depends on whose story GONNA take. One is that he had been told that that George was exit had exhumed body from the grounded. Martin Carmona attempt to resurrect a deceased woman. The other story is that George challenged changed Vernon to prove who was the true prophet. He said Alexander Goddamn Body and you bring back life to prove your the prophet but in another power or move over and goes well. Guess what no matter either way. I'll call the cops else. And here's the deal. He called the cops as a directive from God. Yeah any any told me throughout his shoulder. which why couldn't resurrect the dead? He really has to have to really have that rotator quoted in Santa later and also stop fucking my mind. I don't know if that came through or not but that that's part of. It was redacted from the transcripts. Either Way Fuck Doc in bold. Hey Gimme a minute. I'm going to get a fucking body and we're going to go razzle-dazzle that motherfucker and we're gonNA see who's the Real Messiah here. And he goes. You know what these are my people I don't want that consecration there. Desecration of these bodies and people go That is good for you. That's all it takes. Well the cops didn't believe him. The cops were like hey you know I don't know vern I don't know so what's what's he do. He goes in fucking guns blazing his people charge in an attempt to get proof when I searched for proof. I always go in with multiple automatic weapons as well when I mean that seems like. That's the way you'd want to obtain that. I don't know why he lives at two predictable. It's the religious way that's uh-huh so they go in there. They're going to see what's going on Georgia's shot in the process. This whole thing blows up this. This'll sexist mommy thing in came back to bite him in the ASS in this to end in the future where he wanted it. No because the cops come in they're gonNA arrest everyone. Everything's going on George also during this time He. He claims that he got his mom. PRAGER CZ seventy seven year old pregnant and and crash. If I remember correctly while I wasn't there I'm sorry. If I remember from my research correctly she would cover out. Thank you had a miscarriage. And he said it's because she didn't have enough faith and that was kind of a way he are you sure that's not a professional wrestling story arc because I think I remember that from my thousand she gave a hand Candian may young and then it was punted by ski and that was a quite a great little segment we just so he was questioning about this shit though if it was true and to the cops he he said jokingly to the police if I got a seventy seven year old woman pregnant I am God and I guess that quote was even said Look Kinda tongue-in-cheek way and they're like God him he thinks he's God that was one of the things that were put 'cause they're building a case at this time and we're GONNA get into about the crazy stuff that he's doing well but what case are they building against you Brent. We talk about that now just saying that how often I hear you talk about Your divinity heaven as a Prince Legal Counsel. I'm going to advise he does not answer you on that question. You have legal counsel here. She can neither confirm nor deny produce releases. A woman of many hats Jesus basis so powers-that-be claimed boom he's guide. You know he say he's got it. That's that's later years later. George is not doing doing well. Mount Carmel is losing support is spiraling into debt and then for shits and giggles. All Georgia finds himself convicted in prison in a mental institution for murder with a man named Dale Adair. Told George he was the Messiah and in in response he fucking split his face open with an axe owes at all. That's all I don't know why it had to escalate so quickly meaning putting him in a mental institution. Yeah you. You'd think that'd be a slap on the wrist in Texas. That's the old Texas hello so runs in prison. And he odes thousands tons of dollars in back taxes so boom crash steps in and becomes the leader of the branch Davidians. I mean he was a smart individual and it was very calculating and when people try try to beat them he kind of he took that advantage of it and in eighty nine eight years after his arrival then as branch Davidian Vernon in has gained total control over this entire. You know. I think that I mean this sort of tongue-in-cheek but also sort of accurate. I think that Georgie was playing checkers. But but I think that Verne was playing chess here. Yeah the he was indeed King careful he can move in any direction direction. The king of kings. So let's let's go to break real quick because the story as we're speeding through it it gets weirder and when we come back doc. We're going to talk the day to day Shenanigans at Mount Carmel. Jesus and spoiler alert. They are not cheeky function. And again's like mine shirt uh-huh damn by Alpha and Omega Komo. Sports all is lost. Woman made a pencil skirt of God. Oh Lord so we're back. We were talking fun sketches. Ask during the break. We don't Miss David Koresh. Yes I don't no no I'd say schedule. We know but to this point he's still been Vernon Howell and he is now the leader of the cult so he changes his name as you do. I don't know why didn't just stick with Vernon Jezreel Israel. Well I'll tell you why okay then and I can. I can weigh in a little bit on the name thing as far as some of the OT history than I think gives it real flesh on the bones should go for it. Why didn't change his name? So David of course being King David which was of the Israeli Judah Jews that it sounds like it. Sounds like a fucking sports drink. Choose that or you're yelling. In order to fucking Burger King. I'll take oh that was in the clerks. I'll take an EGA movie muffin. And a king of the juice all right. Let's let's let poor John. Thomas Finished Lee. Okay so so Karesh interesting little riff on talking about the history so so the the kingdom. NFL You know the kingdom Israel and Judah fell and then the Jews went into US called ASPRO which is where. They're kind of all over but the Babylonians noticed that There were a disproportionately huge amount of people in Judaism that could read and write and that was really useful skill so I took those folks and they essentially that stick pick them. Even to this day it helps reading. It'd be able to read and write. Yes I'm the dissenting opinions. So they kept them in captivity slavery. Whatever you WANNA call it And they were freed by the Persians so at that point Cyrus is the leader and he surprisingly. Is this fairly magnanimous conquer. That this is well I got no problem with you. Go back to take your let these people go. So he's he's he's embraced as as a Messiah and in the Old Testament Messiah didn't necessarily mean anything divide it was just meant essentially someone who saved us yet exactly in so Karesh is Hebrew. I said the Babylonian so in in that story They're kind of the bad guys. Yeah so the the babblings are the bad guys in the Old Testament in that at Motif is carried forward into the New Testament into the ready book of revelations. Say Hey I don't know the Cyrus has also Cyrus the great. He's referred to as is also remembered because he chose a form of the traveler the last time that goes with a gazillion game. Ascom shoe three feet above the covers as well. The reason I asked about the Babylonian says didn't Karesh and maybe we'll get into this. So I'm sorry if I'm jumping on Didn't caress preach that The American government was Babylon. Yeah so Babylon is like I said it's a it's a motif not F- along with Rome That is used commonly In Christian circles and sex as basically representation of of evil empire. So okay used interchange you wrote a really upbeat song about it. People Ericsson Avenue. Now I don't know I. I went to raging answer machine route. So yes that says a lot about both I think it does yeah. There's of course in revelation the horror of Babylon who's wearing a sash. So how was it like kind of like a scarlet letter type family. She had to wear it. So we're herbal was we're going to. We're going off royal color Roy. The Roman royal color specifically go. Okay well this woman. That was fun. Thank you played Roman hopscotch us to say what it was that a Roman hots hopscotch. Don't act like you don't know I don't know I. Yeah I don't know anyway speaking of Atlanta in the lion pit if you land on the six inch because now David Koresh. WHO's taking the name of King David and Cyrus the great becoming David Krejci Vernon now is gone because being a total shit stain on society is is beyond him in eighty? Nine Karesh uses power as spiritual leader of this group to take several spiritual in quotes as they put them wives as young. Their relationship was very physical. The was fucking the shit out of anything there. And you know what when you're in a close group in your your Bang and everything all of a sudden u-turn onto into you turn to like heeded children now Kevin. Yes interesting thing we say twelve. There is a lot of young girls and we Saito of. Why is that? What was the legal the age of consent in Texas well My rebuttal here. I don't have my legal counsel here Why are you asking me? No I'm just kidding with fifty states that some some level by that for I believe leave when I was reading about this. It said that it was like fourteen sort with parents consent. In Texas fourteen with consent they could get married. They could get married at fourteen with parents consent. INSENT but yeah and so you guys you know what. I'm saying that this is just to create a new lineage of world leaders. It's it's not because he is. He's taking one for the team. Well wait a minute. Why did it have to be the young kids to? There's only so many women there didn't read that they had to be virgins urgence for the the twenty four I I know I said No. Because he took wives of everyone there that was already but he okay so the offspring he was mixing. Metaphors is forty seven or twenty seven. I forget how many women I'm sorry children. He was supposed to bear. That would become the the new rulers. Well guess is what though people start talking and this raised allegations of child abuse which contributed to the siege. That eventually was going to happen by the ATF. And the reason why he did this as he was interpreting revelations chapter five specially verse to crush identified himself as is the lamb of God or the land. This ad mentioned the verse in the actual verse. Partout is at the strong angel claiming with a loud voice who is worthy to open the book and to lose the seals thereof him. He signed himself as the the seals. Now do you WanNa talk. Are you familiar with that. Like talk to us about it's traditionally is interpreted as a symbol of Jesus Christ and that's but not for Davey he thought of himself as that lamb and he was therefore Jesus yeah so if you read his his exegesis on the seven seals which he didn't get through all through I think the first one because it was written during during the siege. He talks about that He. He didn't proclaim to be Jesus Christ. He thought that Jesus Christ failed in his his mission and that he was the quote Unquote Sin Point. Asya the simple fire. We'll talk about. which by the way do you think sinful messiah sounds like a English English speed metal band from exactly thank them? They're they're in that David Koresh would be their their hit song maidenhead burden so so yeah. He was Interpreting that obviously differently That he was that at slane land that would be able to open the slain lamb. I actually saw them open sinful Messiah Time so this is fun and the thing about this is is when he's now he is this Messiah and he's taken on these quote Unquote Spiritual Eyes Fiona. That's his period. You don't have anything everything is his your TV your car. Your Wife your child. He was Lamma God and all things were his period. And if you're going to be in that group you were going to abide by those rules rules and what's crazies. You Talk to these people and they're like you were talking to him. He's took your wife. WHO's the only way he he? He deserves it you know. He's my brother and We separated them right. The men and the women well because he didn't want any right he made them in like get rid of photos. Oh does of their wives. That was not able to do that. And I mean obviously that speaks to his narcissism on a whole `nother level that he I mean when you you think of the narcissistic personality disorder. You have to understand that. They really feel like they're sometimes literally sometimes figuratively the center of the universe and so right right other people's desires don't really matter because they're bit players today. Well I think he really believed in some people you look at people that are in you know. Look at Jim Jones Jim Jones was a sham. I really think David Koresh thought that he was in the right or he was helping these people in fucked up way Kevin. I were talking about this earlier earlier in so I always go back to when we talk about These type of co-leaders. I feel like they fall into one of two branches. They either fall into opportunistic Charlatan or they fall into true believer and I was convinced especially with the spiritual wives that he was the opportunist An in didn't believe a word of it but but after reading some of his his like the exit Jesus's remark about. I think he might have believed some of this yet. I mean I really do. And it may have been something where where he vacillated back and forth right. Well yeah and that's something that they in themselves like why I'm having doubt and that's because I man and I need to as this and things things like that we're talking about what he did. Have one legal wife. Her name was Rachel Jones and she was fourteen actually at the time of their marriage. That's only legal marriage that he had a tonight and crush asses followers to embrace celibacy. We're talking about like you said you you. He notified their marriages. You're not a took the one for himself including Rachel's twelve year old sister Michelle so he was married spiritually to a twelve year old girl for sure now some of them there've been talks. He was with some as young as ten. The problem is when they testified. The story changed and things like that. So it's never been for sure as twelve is hideous radius enough behavior. I think it's all fucking hideous and I think this guy's so an I texted to bowl to you guys after doing some research. This guy is so full of Shit. Well if you're not to say that he didn't maybe not believe this the theological shit and have such narcissism that he thought he was the one who who only understood the seals and open them. But he's so full of Shit. Well you understand some if he fox you you're now in the House of David and that's all that's just because his name on the lease well and it's also also all the music played you gotta think he was just pumping that twenty four seven. He wasn't listening to like sales and crawl. Yeah Doc he admitted to fathering twelve children by several wives though other sources say fifteen which is a weird weird thing and unfortunately the seventy seven year old woman. That baby never came snits ski kicked it into the. That's exactly what goes people flock to him. Though they did they really did and they were convinced his word was truth and that he was the real profit this this you know the the center that they were promised our results speak he built up Mount Carmody include Chapel Sleeping Quarters Gym Swimming Pool Work Area that a gym swimming pool now they had everything time he ensured what is empire by protecting installing watchtowers brought on nfl a federal firearms license. That was a member number. Brought them in there. And because of that lots and lots and lots of guns leaders tend to be good administrators or they tend due at least know how to hire the right people administrators delegate. You can delegate and you delegate to the people that are your that you trust you and that was. The problem is the mom before. Lois was delegating to David. When he couldn't really be trusted in George knew that but George had some expert Nadu and he got ousted did he began to build an arsenal though? And this is the thing Garrett said they would go to local gun shows local all over the country buy and sell and trade legally legally. They were doing this to the letter. That's another thing you're talking about their good things. He was legally doing these they had. They had impeccable random bag bag that was they had a actual gun store and he the other thing. The name of the gun stores Maggie which is very clever. I mean honestly Weapons parts were. We're being shipped their chemicals for explosives for being shipped their night-vision scopes supplies of of lots. And Lots and lots of ammunition ammunition and in doing so you start to draw attention because everything is regulated. They know what you're getting and they also they know what you're not supposed to be getting because a a ups driver accidentally opened. That's what What it was in their grenades Shit to make them work if you put them together could you imagine being a. UPS DRIVER DO Thursday. I'm going to go home. I'm going to have a beer. I'm GonNa Watch what you're and actually I don't think he are starting it but anyway anyway and then grenades and other shit comes out of this I think is a a ups driver. He was playing in Utero at the time. When stuff like that? You're Tapia's driver. You know to take the good take the bad you take them both and there you have is you. BS driving the facts of life. World's never seem seem to be living your dreams if your ups driver but finally find out that you need to call the ATF grenades in a box pitcher legal counsel maximum so seriously though he starts drawing attention to himself by outside the problem is the locals locals liked them. They were nice they were cordial. They weren't the weirdoes. That didn't shower per se. The those folks live in Oregon. They were in the woods in Kentucky. Yeah and so this led all this this this firepower building this all. This people are wondering what's he doing and they certainly not pass. I started looking into the past and this all leads to the siege. And we're going to cover that next week. We're going to go over some of the so so we've talked about and build on it but this guy was a smart dyslexic manipulator. Who Fuck children so there? You go pretty much much sums it up. I think and there are still people today and I will probably talk about this next week. There's still people today who believe in him and believe in what they are the survivors and then there's still other branches of the branch Davidians who just slows my mind theologian in prison. That actually still writes about him and thinks he's coming coming back. All I didn't know about that was one of the company. I can't remember his name but Johnson the notes but go forth before dat swear he is risen. I will say it though. This was saying allowed their cats out of the back. So we'll get to more next week. It's a heavy you too heavy topic and we're trying to make light as much as we can. So you know what's going on. But what do you guys think how I think the best question you know to talk about on historian nation. This week is how do people fall colts. I still don't have a good answer for that and it is a heavy topic. I know you guys invited me on a while. Back to beyond the Jamestown episode. Just dark and terrible and that's Jonestown my friend. That's what I meant. Sorry Jamestown James Joyce's Colt yes Really really have a good time on on June sixteenth. Nineteen O four was ulysses ulysses takes place in one Monday so just really quick. Have you guys ever read his love. Notes real weird is letter. They are the most perverse associate thing. I'm like Oh to my dearest. Whatever talks about how he likes the sound of her farts and he likes the quick little whip crackles? We'll send heaven actually runs a site called breaking the airlock dot. com is about two people putting their butts together into one each others butts literally. That is for some reason a conversation that Kevin had with me earlier today. Jay laid absolutely James. Joyce probably did start it and and it's not better than Finnegans. Wake not to be confused with Kevin's other page. SPACE DOCKING DOT com. You can look that up. Please don't look that up. Cheeses Christ Brent so burden so honor honor on a serious note so like we talked about just briefly. I did want to mention. I mean when you look at Hitler when you look at Yeah Yeah Yeah Manson and when you look at for some reason all of these gentlemen were spurned in their artistic endeavors and they seemed like they a personalized that so much that they felt they could they needed to have people worship them. It's like it's like Eddy. izard said I can't get this streeter had fuck it. I'll kill everyone. Yeah it's like it's like if I'm not going to you're not going to wash it with my creation then you will worship portion me. Yes that's a hell of a pillow swallow and I think it's because art is so deeply personal and the rejection of our of rejection the personal and if you're a narcissistic person that's like why don't they get it I'm I'm great. It's very very tough. It's very toughest. It's a hell of A. Yeah in his right there but people don't they. Don't get the help you need.

All I found was I think an insurance salesman in Detroit or something. That's as long as he doesn't write a book. I I think I'm good. So the the elevator pitch is they say There on the planet Channel Plant Chessel is orbited by seven moons each of those moons is the sovereign domain of one of the seven gods on the planet channel human beings have divided themselves up into seven seven different tribes to worship each of the gods including the tribe Karesh. Yeah there's one very very simple on channel. Here's here's what you get on on the planet channel so when you die You go into.

Local nurse, 31, wife, mother of 3 hospitalized after Moderna jab

"Good morning tom roden morning show. Newsradio eight hundred. Wpa chew and online. Eight hundred w v h dot com. It is a tuesday august. Twenty four twenty twenty one at eight o four. We have seventy four right now. Ian ashland maddox guest is from the ashland area. A nurse at k. dmc and Katie emc is requiring all employees to be vaccinated by the middle of next month. But they're also offering an alternative You can sign a A waiver and And then submit to weekly testing and all that but One nurse My next guest Decided to go ahead and get vaccinated and I believe regrets that decision. After her vaccine injury a kelly higgins joins me now and kelly understand Where you were hospitalized at k. Dmc the place where you work your now home and doing somewhat better so thank god for that good morning. Good morning so tell us about your experience. when did you receive the vaccine and i received first dose of the maduna vaccine August ten tant. Yep okay and were you skeptical at first about getting this and i was very very hesitant at first about getting it and through i've worked throughout the pandemic I have been floated to the cabinet Several times to work And our my husband and myself we were. We were Wanting to hold off on getting the vaccine until it had been out for a little while so we could see How it was going to do and give time for more testing what makes sense that makes sense and that was a decision that you and your husband have made and you mentioned your husband You'll have is it to children and we have three children okay. Three children And you're so you're young mom What thirty one is that right yes. I'm thirty one okay. And previously in excellent health didn't have any immuno-compromised situations at all No not at all my my health history is is actually pretty perfect So what changed your mind. What What convince you to go ahead. And get this vaccine on august tenth well and a few weeks ago when katie and see Started to announce that they were going to require employees To have the vaccine There was a lot of a lot of pressure. a lot of shaming in The healthcare setting and So i decided to start asking some questions and doing in research To go to go ahead and get the vaccine and That's that's what initially prompted me and kind of put the pressure on to go ahead and get it So was did so. You felt pressured from your employer to get this. Even though the the actual mandate hadn't taken effect yet and not necessarily for my employer but I'll just say healthcare colleagues us a okay What is the peer pressure. Then because look everybody else is getting it. Don't you think you should do it. I mean we. We've been dealing with that since we were in school. Everybody else's doing at kelly. So shouldn't you do And and so you went ahead and you succumb to that pressure What happened after you got that That first dose of the modern vaccine on august tenth and so initially. I felt completely fine. i came home and probably within seven to eight hours After i received the injection i began having Heart palpitations And that that has started later that night and the next day i actually went to urgent care To get checked for it they did an ekg. My ekg checked out online And so i was just sitting back home indian back three days post vaccine Had developed chest pain along with the palpitations. So that prompted me to go to the er and get checked in the er Once again and So i go to the er. They do an entire cardiac workup at that time. Everything was checking out to be fun. so was discharged back home and i was told that i might have a little bit of Myocarditis and so i was on Some anti inflammatory medication To help reduce the inflammation and help get me more comfortable So hold on saying kelly. You went to the yard twice And heart palpitations. Had you ever had that before. No i've i've never had any any type of Hurt hard issues before pain issues before now. Okay all right so go ahead So heart palpitations chest pain possible myocarditis and then they put you on some medication And then what happened So at this point where Six days Post vaccination I woke up and i had I still have the chest pain. The heart palpitations. I developed a fever. chill body aches head to tail And so i decided. I needed to go back to the er So i went back to the er that evening and they then some blood work And i was told him. E r possibly had a A blood clot in my lungs Based on the lab results and my my symptoms my my heart rate at that time was in in like the one forties goodness So Blood clot in your lungs. Yep yep so. That's i was admitted and Let's see that was last last tuesday I was admitted to To to king's daughters And i had an entire cardiac workup gun. I mean i was having blood work drawn every few hours. chest xrays. I had to have a A cardiac stress test They checked me They tried to rule out any type of underlying issues that could have contributed to To me having a blood call. All of that was negative. By the way They consulted haematologist to see. If i possibly had a clotting disorder and i was seen by infectious disease to rule out literally anything like hepatitis hiv Rocky mountain spotted fever I had a lot of a lot of testing then. Basically to rule every every possible thing out And i was. I ended up getting to go home and this past friday afternoon. Show from tuesday to friday. You were a patient at the same hospital that that your employees correct yeah I mean in all those tests. And i'm sure that you reminded them that you had just had this. First dose of the madonna vaccine just a few days before did any doctor any healthcare worker at all. Say oh wow let let's you know. Let's explore that. And so actually for four of the different doctors. I seen All told me that. I was experiencing and a very a very bad reaction To the to the vaccine that was what was ended up The conclusion that came to was that it was a bad reaction to the vaccine. And i was actually taken off the vaccination list at king's daughters and Given medical exemption from receiving the second dose of the vaccine kind of them i. I'm pretty sure you've probably decided you weren't going to have the second dose. Yeah yep i had. I had actually decided Within probably the first day or two of receiving it to begin with that i was going to be taking a chance with the second does based on how feeling how has this changed your mind about vaccines about earth specifically about the covert vaccines in general. Well goodness it has that has certainly been a Topic of discussion in our house over the last few weeks so it really makes me sad That there is so much pressure Just for everyone to get it. I mean i've heard it i've heard physicians and other healthcare workers say that it's just getting poke. It's just the poconos arm. But it's really so much more than that This could have potentially really changed my life and my ability to help provide for my family And so to me it is it is so much more than that And it it should be used with with a lot of caution And treating trading this vaccine like it's a one size fits all I mean it's that's so scary. How long have you been a nurse. Kelly and i've been a nurse for seven years in your seven years of experience I'm sure that that you come to realize that. That medicine and treatment and procedures are not a one-size-fits-all even for common things different people get affected different ways absolutely absolutely so this. This experience has been Extremely eye opening to me in that reward I'll say wanted to mention There there was some suspicion that i might have had coverted in the past and then getting vaccinated cards. This really bizarre reaction that my body had And so they were actually able to do some blood work and send it off to Mayo clinic and that blood work came back yesterday that i had Was negative for any natural. Antibodies to tobin means it. Probably then that you had not had cova throughout this entire time even though you had actually worked with cova patients correct. Wow well. I mean it just probably shows that you're young and healthy and had a good immune system already absolutely absolutely so With all of the blood work and testing and everything that's been done They were able to to rule out any. I mean any possible thing that could have contributed to the reaction. I had to the to the vaccine. Again we're talking to a thirty one year old katie. Emc nurse kelly higgins who became a patient at the hospital where she's employed for a number of days just last week After receiving the first dose of the madonna cova jab and She was hesitant in the first but felt pressure to do so I wonder if this would change anybody. the higher ups at king's daughters about this mandatory vaccine. I mean now that they know one of their own has had this type of reaction. Yeah i mean I think it's it's something that should be certainly considered I i am happy that they are offering A choice so to speak but I i i'm sad I'm sad at the way it's all. It's all working out the the pressure and the shaming in the healthcare industry. Right now is i mean. It's a lot and it. it's ultimately the reason i i ended up. I told my husband. I ended up feeling feeling bad like it was something i should be doing like. I wasn't being a good nurse by not being vaccinated. Yeah and that's why i went to get it so the the shaming overall is is. It's a lot. I'm sure it's it's It's ten times sat in in the healthcare industry. But it's going on. am businesses and and Shops and small business everywhere Across america that in that employees are being shamed either by their employer or by their co workers To to follow suit to do what. The employer is demanding. And it's taken away. The individual rights the individual choices. Big say well you could just choose not to work there. Yeah but but in what other instance is there a situation where an employer tells you what you have to do with your health. I in to this extreme of of getting an untested unproven vaccine. That's only been around a few months. it just doesn't make any sense. It's really unprecedented. Absolutely and it. It does seem like a lot of a lot of businesses Are moving in that direction. i mean if you turn on the news. That's that's all you see is business after business announcing that this is gonna be a requirement for their employees to have and it's it's so scary because the vaccine is so it's so new and this type of vaccine even though it's been worked on for i think. I read twenty years for r. n. a. Vaccines how long. They've been working on them. But it's it's still a brand new top of vaccine. It's not like our our childhood vaccines. It works totally different going. I talked to Tony salmon's back on august thirteenth and At that time he told me that there was About one hundred. Twenty one katie. Emc employees who were holding out refusing to get back st- I don't know what that number number is now. But but he was one of the ones That had decided he was not going to to get the vaccination Have you talked with some of these folks. Are they still resolved in in not wanting to get backed. I know there are a couple hundred Who are who are going to hold out and also talked to Another nurse who From your area and jessica maynard on august twelve now her Vaccine injury turned her life upside down. she's close to your age and she was a an ultra marathon runner and Now is barely able to get up off. The couch. mean her. Her whole life has been turned upside down. yes so jessica maynard was actually one of my instructors in nursing. School and i have known her for years. She's she's a wonderful person Her and i have been in in communication and she's we've been able to be a support for one another throughout all of this and it just. It's really scary. Because i mean it's happening and it's happening to people we know i it's hitting home. It's not just something you hear about. You know a friend of a friend. These are people that we know to thank god that you were able to get home out of the hospital but but where are you as far as your health goes because i know there for a while you were looking at maybe even going to the cleveland clinic because things seem to be very dire a blood clot in your long at at pretty serious Has all that cleared up now. And so i'm i'm home and i am recovering Getting lots of rest. And i'm hoping to go back to work At some point this week So i'm still. I still have some issues with Mehari shooting at pretty high and there is still. Some chest is comfort. But i am set up to be following up with a cardiologists Really closely for a while. And when i was discharged from the hospital after i'd had all of the scans i mean. My legs were scanned through scanned. My abdomen Because also had really elevated labor ins on Post vaccine and so It was ruled out that they could not find a blood clot in my lungs. But i have been Taking some anti coagulant Just or preventative measures Now and i'm still calling them anti inflammatory medications Because i was basically told just because your numbers and the labs look okay doesn't mean you don't still have some myocarditis going on. It was just a mild case. And so feel. I'm home and Just try just trying to keep comfortable and and rest and Follow up Here in about two weeks with cardiology. Keep an eye on everything Well it sounds like you're very fortunate because As you know with jessica situation with so many others Their lives have been absolutely wrecked after getting waxed and Have you known of any other people. kelly who have suffered a vaccine injury and i have heard has I've to others I there is another girl. I know Who has been Suffering since she got vaccinated and she had what's called. Sp tea which is cheaper. Ventricular tackle cardia So has been dealing with that. I don't know what all Medical treatment She has been receiving just no. It's something she was dealing with Post vaccination and i've i've heard of another in our area to you but i'm i'm not for sure What has gone on with him. Not just it's just something. I've heard of four doctors Believed that that what you were going through was due to the To getting the medina jab Did they or did anybody at katie. Emc or you submit The this information this adverse reaction to the air system Yes actually did yep And i you know. I i just read a story yesterday You know there is a vaccine injury court for even things like the flu shot and and childhood vaccinations but as of right now The vaccine injury court is not paying out for covet vaccine injuries. I believe that has a lot to do with the fact that up until yesterday. And then i've been where fda approved and so For me Whenever i went to receive my my vaccine at king's daughters I did have to sign a form Dating that basically knew it was not fda approved and that i could not hold him liable for anything that might happen after receiving the vaccine. The people that pressure due to get this whether it'd be a doctor or co worker. Did they come back to you while you were in the hospital. Suffering and apologize. No no there was. There was still A lot of Denial and trying to pinpoint it on anything but the vaccine Which all of that. Testing like i said ruled out. There was absolutely nothing else that could have contributed to the reaction. I had i mean there. They were like please let it be rocky mountain spotted fever let it be anything but i mean they did just. It's amazing to me that this is all coincidence. And that people can't admit what they actually seeing that there have been hundreds of thousands of adverse reactions to these vaccines and some of them have been way more than just mild symptoms. They've been hospitalization. They've been the types of things that you and also jessica have gone through and it's just It's horrific that they can't even see it or admit it. Yeah i mean and and that's the that's the thing with it. That's that's extremely Frustrating and just just overall and very disheartening to me. I mean as a nurse. I am my patients Biggest advocate If i go to give them a medication. And they don't want to take it. They're allowed to say they do not want to take it and i still have to treat them the same And i'm the person who goes to the doctor for them and advocates for you know for for what they want in regards to their healthcare. And and i've said this whole on You know who's my advocate He's not so all of this has been just. It's very very sad. It's causing a lot of a lot of division And our our country certainly doesn't need any more than you know anymore that we don't need another thing to bodice and it kind of seems like you're you're vaccination. Status is is also playing into that now as well. Is it sad. It really is all right Kelly thank you so much for coming on and telling your story and thankful that you're at home and doing better and Just on a lot of folks will be praying for. You have been praying for you that everything will be. Okay kelly higgins a nurse katie. Emc injured by a vaccine. Thank you so much for for coming on telling your story okay.

S10 EP116: Hour 1 - Just Noticing Things

"Hello and welcome. It is erected here. Glad to have you with me. It is tuesday. And i hope it's prettier where you are. That is where i am. All it's done is rain and storm. We've got two hundred percent humidity here. We're all about to drown in the middle of georgia and it's not even raining the phone number. If you wanna be a part of the program. Eight seven seven nine seven eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five major league. Baseball has having. It's all star game. They've boycotted george in atlanta. Because stacey abrams and her lies nate going at the new york. Times points out that. A nonpartisan index of voting rights in the nation has risen georgia from the forty ninth most First place to vote or for the forty nine out of fifty states is a terrible place. Vote is now the s. It's improved the access to the ballot improve. The ease of voting improved streamline voter integrity but yet major league baseball believed the lie from stacey. Abrams boycotted the state of georgia and has gone to denver. Where they can. I guess all the players can test positive for marijuana tomorrow. it's was basically ally and the line continues nonstop inevitably the left continues to lie about voting rights in the nation. I interacted with a georgia. Agreed georgia voter this morning. I just can't believe you engage in voter suppression new thinking. You know the number of of minority voters in georgia has gone up. The number of the voter participation rate in georgia has increased in the last number of years even a stacey abrams of the democrat in georgia. Where saying that voter. Participation was going down. Actually it was going up The number of non white voters participating in elections in georgia and florida and the carolinas in places like texas has gone up despite democratic claims to the contrary democrats in texas have fled to washington. Dc now keep in mind this. We've got some studied contracts in this several years ago the state of oregon attempted to pass a global warming climate change bill that would actually devastated oregon businesses. It would have driven up taxes. It would have made the cost of doing business in oregon Very difficult it would have caused a power outages as a the various electrical manufacturers producers out there would not have been able to comply with had to shut down a different outlets different power facilities. They couldn't have kept up. they're oregon republicans walked out of the state legislature to block the law from being bath. The democrats in oregon refused to negotiate with them refuse to address their concerns. Refuse to address. The concerns of the business community refused to address. The concerns of the chamber of commerce refuse to address the concerns of individuals. Who did not live in portland out a more rural parts of order very very conservative. They didn't wanna talk to those people didn't want to didn't want to address their concerns. It would have driven up costs for them. It would have driven costs for farmers. There was not goshi. This had the pass in two thousand. Three republicans packed up and left the legislature. Depriving the oregon. Democrats of a corum. You can imagine how the how the media responded. The media responded by accusing the republicans of destroying democracy the media at the time across media outlets national media outlets accused republicans of trying to destroy the environment of trying to disrupt democracy of trying to deprive the people of oregon of their legislature. Chris cillizza This by the way. I said two thousand three two thousand. Nineteen oregon. Republicans are hiding literally rather than vote on a climate bill. Cnn now texas house. Democrats leave state to block. Republicans the new york times then oregon climate walkout left republicans in the hiding statehouse in disarray. Now texas democrats played the fleas state to highlight gop voting restrictions. Vox media then. Oregon republicans are subverting democracy by running away again. Vox beating how praising democrats for fleeing texas. We know how this works all the time. We know others works. In fact have you noticed. Have you noticed brian. Roden is the man who is now accused of killing gene cillers the golf pro and georgia wreck destruc- in a sand trap the golf pros steelers went to check on him was shot in the head. There were two dead bodies in the back of the truck. Brian roden had a series of engagements with law enforcement. He punched police officers with let out on bail. He led police on a police. Chase was let out on. Bail apparently got shot in and shot. Someone wasn't prosecuted the night of the murders. A week ago was pulled over with a missing headlight missing. Tail light fake. Id's was it out then repeatedly bonded at a prison now. We were told in america. That if you're black the police are gonna shoot you or berry you under the jail. You're you're not going to get jail for civil this. Brian wrote in his black. Have you noticed. How the national media last week fixated on this story. In fact the the the man the description of the flea suspect was a six what hispanic man and a white shirt turned up any brian. Roden there were looking for black man. The national media. It was covered by cnn. It was covered in the washington post. It was covered the wall street journal. Who's covered on. Nbc and msnbc was covered on world news tonight. Haven't heard the story sense. Have you noticed how because the narrative is disrupted. They gotta move on by the way. Is this the systemic. Racism people are talking about. Is this the systemic racism Because we're told that our justice system is typically racist and brian rowe. Black man was repeatedly arrested including for punchy police officers and repeatedly let out of prison. Yes charges are pending and he made bud. But we were told that black men get harsher sentences harsher punishes punishments in her left in jail far longer than white men and he had. He was bonded out pretty quickly at each case. Is that the systemic racism that we're talking about what about the moore's in massachusetts on the same weekend of that shooting a large group of heavily-armed black men tied up traffic on i ninety five massachusetts a bunch of blue checkmark progressives on twitter. Say it must be white people because they already be dead by now the beliefs nope turns out. It was a group of black separatists. The systemic racism. Funny how the media has moved on from that story to in california. They're having rolling blackouts non. Stop rolling blackouts. They're having forest fires Pacific gas and electric. Pgn either california power company had so many mandates from california to transition from from fossil fuel and nuclear power to renewable energy non-sustainable non baseload power energy that they couldn't maintain their line so now they've got a turn off the power and during the middle of the summer a massive heat wave. They're having to wind down power so that they don't start forest. Fires and transformers don't explode when the power went out in texas during an ice storm. We got lectured by the media for multiple weeks on end about how texas is power grid to independent. It needs to be heavily regulated. And how is it that in texas the lights are out. This is norman. Californian notice how the media is not talking about that. Would they're not discussing the power outages. Why maybe because in california's progressives and in texas it's it's not progressive conservatives and There's a tit-for-tat there's there's a a knowing sense that the democrats will be treated more favorably than the republicans at all times in all situations again. Major league baseball has moved to denver. Snot in georgia now. Not in atlanta stacey. Abrams basically told them to boycott and then was allowed to alter her op. Ed in the us in usa today in which she pushed businesses to abandon georgia when republicans pointed out. She was encouraging them to abandon georgia usa. Today let her revise her op-ed to change the language. So it made it. Seem like she was anti-boycott remember she published the op-ed and was very pro boycott and then they let her change it after. Republicans pointed it out and major league. Baseball listened to her. There are no factcheck fat check. Stacey abrams she said in her op-ed that she was against the boycott. Yeah after they let a revise it would. They let a republican do that. Republicans aren't fighting the democrats. They're fighting the media to and by the way they're winning. I don't know if you've noticed this but yes. Donald trump lost but republicans across the board. Have been doing really really well. Even though you've got a united media front against the republican party you've got republicans dominating at the state level. They're about engaging the redistricting and the media path in this is absolute hysteria absolute denouncement absolute rejection of what republicans are doing and yet the republicans are still doing very well. Funny how that works. It's like the media doesn't have a monopoly anymore. It does kind of make you wonder if the media monopoly had gone away before the mid nineties would republicans have taken back congress. Sooner you had rush limbaugh became a dominant force in american politics in the early nineties and rush limbaugh was regularly talking on radio about what republicans were doing had on newt. Gingrich the contract with america. You've got to keep in mind. I i realized this is hard for people now to understand particularly if you were born in the in the early nineties but democrats controlled the united states house of representatives for forty nonstop years. It was just presumed. The democrats would always control congress and it coincided with a media monopoly that was decidedly hostile partisan of the left in the late eighties. This guy on radio had this brilliant idea of of a political talk show. Now you talk to russia's. I did russia's a heated. Would it be the best political eat. It would be the best talk you would it be the best at radio period and if talk was the way to be the best that radio. That's what he was gonna do because he wanted to be the best and he was in arguably the best we talking to a friend of mine. This morning you'll notice you got me now national You got a number of other. People now national. No no one ever gets up every day. Wonder what this guy's going to say on the radio today may be locally in some markets. You do but everybody wanted to know what rush said. There's there's no buzz Really about talk. Radio without rush rush was and is the best but in he came on the scene and became just a force to be reckoned with in the early nineties across the country. Literally there were restaurants. You could go to that would have rush limbaugh the radio and if you're a conservative these restaurants and realize you weren't alone and there are a lot of people who agreed with you and i don't think it's a coincidence that the forty year monopoly of democrats in control of congress collapsed in hundred ninety. Four when you had fox news coming on the scene you had other media outlets but really you had now a talk. Radio four should rush limbaugh with twenty million people listening to him and realize they weren't alone. They weren't fringe. They weren't the anomaly. That the abc cbs nbc and cnn at the time the dominant forces in bbs made people think they were and then by the time you get into the two thousand. You've got the internet. You've got fox news. You've got alternate channels The medium to longer has a monopoly. Where even for those forty years. That democrats control congress and you have this. Massive media monopoly. They could portray the republicans always as the bad guy alleged fringe. And now you don't have to put up with them and it's amazing. How much more competitive the political landscape is now. We you don't have a media monopoly. Sell you one side of the story and yet so much of the major mainstream media outlets continue to sell. You'll only one side of the story. The new york times is still a dominant publication. Even though it is now clearly held hostage by woeckel rahm. Cnn has made a conscious editorial decision to move to the left and be more opinion based even among its news anchors msnbc and nbc urges partisan mouthpieces for communist china and the democratic party and they tell you relentlessly partisan bias stories on behalf of the left. They do it. I mean even democrats are willing to admit that major media outlets tend to be more sympathetic to their side now they interpreted as well because we're right and we're truthful that's why the media greet with us. Which is it true. But that's what they thinking. They're willing to acknowledge that. There is a level of partisan bias in the press. Texas democrats have fled to washington. Dc and their heralded like heroes As opposed to stymying democracy in two thousand nineteen when republicans fled oregon to stop a climate were climate Bill the media treated them. Some sort of vandals ransacking democracy. The crecy shows and yet they don't have monopoly so we can pointed out now And you know republicans with the break-up monopoly. They're doing really really well. Don't let it be trouble or not. Not not to sound. Like sean hannity. Here let not your heart be troubled. But but republicans were supposed to have bloodbath in two thousand and while donald trump lost statewide down to the local level in congress the republicans did very well almost held onto the senate republicans. Georgia not flubbed it. They talk themselves at a winning. And now you've got twenty twenty two upon us and the republicans even without redistricting probably going to take back the house. They may take back. The senate and l. Suddenly the democrats are starting to peddle their mythology of all. You know it's the republicans. They're changing the rules and they're going to steal the election you know and i know dern well. The media will treat the democrats seriously in ways. They've never treated republican complaints about election. Seriously well connected and well respected. It's eric erickson live every weekday. Could you be friends with the person who kills you question. I mean it's important. Can you be friends with person. Who's going to kill you. I actually wrote about this. And i hope you'll consider reading it if you text the word data to three three seven seven seven now the importance of this There's more and more data. That people who are right of center tend to have more friends on the left than people have on the left. Were have friends who are right of center. The reason manifest but primarily. It's because once people fall out of church in real religion well religion does go away just comes into something else. And it's real hard to be friends with heretics unless you're in a religion that has a concept of grace also progressive in the more self isolate within large metropolitan areas. But could you be friends with the person who's going to kill you. It's something conservatives. Need to grasp and i hope you'll consider reading what i wrote. Text the word data to three three seven seven seven. That's data to three three seven seven seven. Hello and welcome back. It is curious here the full number if you wanna be a part of the program is eight. Seven seven nine seven eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five just a housekeeping note. I we. I wasn't able to get on vacation last week For variety of reasons. But i i was able to move it to this week so i'm going to be out of here. The next several days was thursday friday. I'll be back. Next week. Alan sanders will be filling in for me Right now the washington free beacon actually has an interesting story about a guy you may have heard of ali london. All london is I guess they call him. Jinder non binary. Yeah i i think that was the term and he was praised for this He was a tutor in korea. He is british he became gender non binary and now he's decided he's transracial. He decided that he was korean. He identifies this quote identifies korean. That's just my culture. That's my home country. I also identifies jimin. That's my korean name. This is something that you guys know if you followed my journey for the last eight years. I've really struggled with identity issues with who i am now. He spoke to the washington free beacon. And said i started to learn about korea and love career win in two thousand thirteen. I went there to teach english for a year. Korea was so warm and welcoming it was always like paradise for me it was an ideal world. I just felt like i wanted to be part of that. And decided he no longer identified as british and so he had a procedures to alter his chin and his is to make himself look korean to look like a pop star. Now what's so interesting here. You can clearly see. This guy is struggling with mental issues. You can see his Evolution in the pictures at the washington free beacon but the thing here is how there are a lot of doctors now in third world countries. Who are willing to adults and stuff and a lot of western doctors. Who are increasingly willing to indulge this and to perform shows that physically someone for self esteem issues for mental health issues. It's rather disturbing. The guy had five rhino plastics. E had his jawbone shave down had his chin cut off and made more pointy had his cheekbone shave down to make his face worse spoil more cute more career aesthetic. And yet the left that says you can pick and choose your gender. Says you can't pick and choose your race and can't really articulate a reason why there's a difference between the two one reason may be because so few people go in this direction that it somewhat highlights there actually is something mental going on across the board and the left realizes that and doesn't want to engage with it. The whole thing is very bizarre. Kudos to the washington free beacon for actually sitting down and interviewing this young man who clearly struggling with some serious issues. Welcome it is. Eric erickson here. The phone number is eight. Seven seven nine seven eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five if you wanna call. Nba part of the program. You're more than welcome to y'all this is funny. I wanted to talk about Buddy ryan just this to me. In atlanta atlanta is becoming. Like the hollywood of the southeast north carolina used to be the hollywood of the southeast and then georgia started giving even bigger tax incentives. So a lot of they still do a ton of filming in north carolina and now increasingly in south carolina's. Well georgia has become the they call it. Y'all would Yali would instead of hollywood and you got to a massive number of film projects in georgia. Well i don't know what the project is But there was a project filming in downtown atlanta and They had to do something with the urban campers. The urban campers are the homeless people who have our pitching tits more ways than one downtown atlanta particularly They they got him all of mean all over downtown. So as an aside i was i i i did my show in studio yesterday normally in the bunker in my house middle georgia. I was in studio in atlanta yesterday at my flagship station. Wsb and then. I had to go get a haircut from the haircut. I went to a fly fishing. The atlanta has one of the greatest fly-fishing stores in the southeast. It's called fish hawk. Buddy mine has been telling me. I need to go. We're headed to the mountains. I'm going to go fly fishing tomorrow so wit by figured i would Get some supplies. And then from there. I drove home and it took me from there in a roundabout way through midtown atlanta without getting on the interstate. Joy got further south of the city. I was stunned. I shocked. I have not seen the number of homeless people standing in the streets begging literally. I'm getting on an on ramp to i seventy five in atlanta in downtown atlanta. The connector and there are homeless people standing in the on ramp to the interstate blocking traffic. Begging there were women on a piedmont a road in atlanta who were begging for money together sharing the funds given there were water. Bottle boys everywhere. I i've never. I've never seen it like that. In atlanta it is just suddenly and i go there fairly regularly and it just. I don't know what's happened very recently. It's just gotten out of hand. And i mean literally i would nearly hit someone trying to get onto the interstate because you had these multiple people standing there at. What was it. The jimmy carter. Not jimmy carter. Freedom parkway whatever the on ramp onto the interstate. You had multiple people standing there. They have two lanes then merge and you had chugai's standing in the middle and a guy on the other side blocking traffic trying to get on the interstate holding up signs to beg. Somebody's gonna get hurt them or the people in the cars will a holywood. Hollywood film studio is trying to film in downtown atlanta and had to get rid of the urban camper stints. The homeless atlanta has an atlanta homeless union of of homeless activists and they complained that the film studio was getting rid of the tenths of the homeless people and rounding up the homeless people. In fact the police removed the homeless people. And that was an outrage. It turns out now. This is the irony and this is the punchline. The hollywood film studio replace that they put up the homeless people in hotels and then instead of helping them get back on their feet helping rehabilitate them helping them. They replaced their tits and put them back out on the street. Good good good. Progressive values of hollywood. Instead of actually helping the homeless people rehabilitate. They just gave them their tints back and put them back out on the street after letting him stay in hotel rooms for a couple of days while they were filming happening. Goodness gracious This is so typical. That mean the hollywood films use. The progressives are always like governments problem. Not my problem. Let the that's why i pay taxes. This is a reminder. The data has shown now for decades decade. Probably forty years. The decades showed that self identified. Conservatives are more generous with their personal funds and charity then. Progressives are progressives tend to think. I pay money to the government. The government should take care of this problem conservatives who typically go to church and tied say you know what. I am my brother's keeper. I've gotta help as well. it's in in the dichotomy of cain and abel The left doesn't think they're their brother's keeper in the right does it just. I'm i saw the story. i wasn't this. What stack of staff. I wasn't planning but i'm just like my buddy rides at the. He's like good grief so the police have to vic the homeless people. The hollywood film studio make sure they have hotel rooms and then gives them off fresh tits to go back to their sidewalks where they're going to be homeless again. The homeless situation in in urban areas around the country is not good in atlanta. It's getting worse. And the mayor of atlanta the city council of atlanta. They just seemed to accept it. You know this really is something. The left routinely does is they take a problem and what. What's the situation. Th this gets into postmodernism. I realize i sound like a broken record but bear with me here what happens. Poche modernism means. There's no reality words shape reality. Communism socialism their postmodern ideologies. And what happens because reality is shaped by language. They tell you. That's not a homeless person that's an urban camper or or some sort of alternate lifestyle dwelling and suddenly. You don't have a homeless problem anymore. It's homelessness becomes a choice. Homelessness desert become a sign. That you're not taking care of your windows your poor and your orphanage. It becomes a sign of wealth issue. Someone's lifestyle choice we have to. We've got to make sure that homelessness is a default homelessness is something we're not gonna fix you. See this around the country and progressive enclaves. They have terrible problems with homelessness. And what they decide is that the homelessness is not a problem. The problem is the people who have the problem with almost this. This is the way it works with the left so in atlanta you've got a crimewave. The mayor of atlanta wants you to be assured it's not really a crime wave. Its covid problem. You have a homelessness problem in the city council atlanta. Want you to understand that. The problem is the homeless people. The problem is the people who don't like the homeless people are like Having their doors and windows knocked on in their cars while they're stop light that it's your problem you ungrateful sob you. You're the problem. It's not the homelessness the problem. It's not the underlying problems that are the problem you know. This gets me back to the to the brian rodent situation. Brian road the murderer of the golf pro in suburban atlanta. The media would say he was black. They shut shut down the story and moved on. We see time and time again. That people want to acknowledge problems. They wanna scream about problems and oftentimes the the problems. They went to acknowledge. The screaming of other problems. Aren't actually the problem. So for example systemic racism. We got lots of people screaming about systemic racism. They are convinced that systemic racism is a real thing and a terrible thing. And we gotta deal with it. Andrew sullivan writes about this piece. What happened to you on his subset. Beijing elvin the he's a gay Was very in. Favor of the iraq worries soured on bush and republicans was perceived for awhile as conservative became a defender of barack obama. And let me just read you. Some of what. He writes this in regard to critical race theory. The crt debate is just the latest squally tempus bruin and building for five years or so and yes some the liberal critiques of fox news hyped campaign or well-taken is this a wedge issue for the gop. Of course it is. Are they using the critical race. Theory is a cynical marketing boogeyman. Of course they are. Are some dog whistles involved. A few or crude bans on public service stages absolutely do many of the alarmists know who dared bell was of course not but does that mean. There isn't a real issue here. Of course it does take a step back observed what's happened at our discourse since around two thousand fifteen forget creek race theory for a moment yourself is nothing going on here but republican propaganda. Guile can you not see that. The republicans may be acting. But they're also reacting reacting against something that is right in front of our noses what is it it is. I'd argue the sudden rapid stunning shift in the belief system of the american elites it has the whole society to profound cultural dislocation. It is in essence an ongoing moral panic against the specter of white supremacy which is nell bizarrely regarded as an accurate description of the largest freest most successful multiracial democracy in human history. We all know it's happened. The elites increasingly sequestered within one political party and one media monoculture educated by colleges and private schools that have become hermetically sealed against any non left sent have had a social justice reckoning within the past few years and they have been ideologically transformed with countless cascading consequences. Take it from new york. Times woke star swisher. Who celebrated this week. That the country social justice movement is reshaping. How we talk about well. Everything she's right and certainly by the new york times and all mainstream journalism. This is the media hub of the social justice movement and the core point of that movement. It's essential point is that liberalism is no longer enough. Not just not enough but itself. A means to perpetuate white supremacy designed to oppress harm and terrorize minorities and women and in dire need of dismantling. There's a huge deal. And it explains a lot. And then he writes this a specter of invisible and unfalsifiable systems and structures and internal biopsies arrived to hover over the world. Some of critique was specific and helpful the legacy of red lining the depth of the wealth gap. But some of it was tim ditches. Tin dishes postmodern theorizing. The movement is much broader race. Is anyone who is dealing with. Matters of sex. Gender will tell you the best monica. I've read to describe the mismatch of postmodern thought and therapy culture ascending among liberal white elites is wesley. Yang's coinage the successor ideology. The structural oppression is white supremacy. But that can also be expressed more. Broadly along crenshaw lines to describe a hegemony that is saturated with anti blackness misogyny trans-phobia in a miasma of social sy- cetera normative patriarchal white supremacy of the term successor ideology works because it centers the fact this ideology wishes first and foremost to repeal and succeed a liberal society and democracy and therein lies the issue systemic. Racism is unfalsifiable. You say they're systemic racism and people on the left will chime in and scream scream that yes there is. How dare you deny their systemic racism. You mean the systemic racism that brian rodent from having to stay in jail for so long that he was able to murder three men or the systemic racism that got barack obama elected president of the united states or the systemic racism that allowed kamla harris to get elected vice president of the united states or the systemic racism that allows the white american press corps to put stacey abrams on the cover of publications. Read by a bunch of white people in make her sate and in charge of voter causes that that white supremacy that systemic racism. But yet you can't falsify you eight male. I've gotten hate mail today for writing a piece this morning. Sub stack about how bride rosen. Thing is is proof. We really don't have system. We can just their systemic racism. What we have what we have. And this is the key core kernel of this. What we have is a failure of progressive programs going back to the nineteen sixties like the great society to elevate people out of poverty that they these society programs the great society like instead they collapsed families destroyed families destroyed people's lives saw an increase in poverty saw an increase in jail for young black men over time from the societal consequences of the great society and instead of acknowledging that the progressive experiment collapsed and failed and should be put on the actually know instead. We're well it failed because we have systemic racism. It didn't it didn't fail because it was a bad program. The left will not acknowledged that their programs wherever ill-conceived a wurley executed instead. There must be something else. It's you white people. The very ones who gave you the great society at elected barack obama. You are the problem. This is where we are as a country is there's a bunch of unfalsifiable narratives on the left blaming everything except their own damn programs that actually failed. And that's where we are and the left believes the stuff to that's the important thing they really believe it. I want you to believe in eating pure if the air purifier. Because it's fantastic. It works it's real. It's good you could hold in your hand. You can put it in your car. You can put it in your rv. You could take with you on your vacation.

And then suddenly miracle miracle behold ten dollars off the eden pure thunderstorm at eden. Pure deals dot com. The phone number here is eight. Seven seven nine seven eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five. Let's go to the phones. I'm going to go first today to jerry. Welcome to the program jerry up on jerry. I got a hang on. I have to reroute the audio. Because i'm on backups. Of there we go jerry. Now everybody can hear you all right thanks. Hey anybody who's gonna get or wants to get their vaccines has done. So and i know everything's political today but what's really got me scratching my head is. Why do you think the left is quote all an on basically mandating vaccines again. I know other than just playing politics. And saying the those you don't get the vaccine for right wing tai boxers but it's gonna be more than out and they're really good at playing long ball. The left is and i'm trying to figure out what they're in game was the same Said the ultimate power grab that they can tell people what to put in their bodies and once you do that. They've got you for life. I can't figure it out. And i wasn't sure if you just put me thought to them You know i have and part of this is it is kind of funny the very people who chant my body might choice once you'd have no choice of putting a vaccine in your body. Apparently you know the the they say that government should stay out of the bedroom. But they want the government every in every other part of the house It's amazing how the left's liberty concept applies only to whether or not you can kill a kid if you wanna kill a kid. It's my body. My choice committed abortion my body. My choice opt out of a vaccine. Well it's it's it's not your choice you've got to have it. There are a couple of things happening here with what the left is doing First of all it is a lot of it just like much of the rights politics. These days is in reaction to the left. The left politics is in reaction to the right because there are so many people the right who don't want the vaccine. There are people in the left who wish to force everyone to have the vaccine which is somewhat ironic because actually the data for longtime shown that people on the left particularly wealthy white liberals are far more skeptical of vaccines than anyone else in the world but more than that. There is something else here as well. This is about control They wish to make you submit to the government Part of this is science. Ism a worship of science. You've you've got to put this vaccine in and by the way. I bro vaccine. I think you should get it. But i'm not gonna force you to get it. The left wishes you to force to force you to get it. Because they're goddess government and science and those two worlds have combined here with a vaccine government distribution of something made by scientists. And therefore you gotta have. It's becoming a sacrament ultimately on the left of the stuff it's just fascinating to see the demands of the secular left embracing religious orthodoxy.

I don't really get it. I don't watch league of legends during the season very much. But i'll watch worlds every single time. There's a reason right games has one sports emmys for their work in those broadcasts because they're incredible in two thousand eighteen they brought in a are dragon and this year they created an a. r. k pop group using technology that had never before been used on this scale for an event. Like this kita. The popular k pop group based on the game came out in virtual cameras joined by live dancers in the actual game.

The seminaries couple had back to south korea for the first time since two thousand seventeen the china south korea the league of legends is gonna go strong for quite a while. But i really wanna talk about. Is the way right delivered value for all their brand partners. Some of their activation are more unique than anywhere else in sports or ea sports. For example the opening ceremony was presented by mastercard right also care packages tons of people around e sports league of legends. Merch and mastercard logos to massacre was also the most prominent logo on the in game banners during world and absurdly valuable sponsorships. Space as we'll see when viewership stats come out louis. Vitton came back for the second year. With an iconic carrying case for the sumners cup do coty was featured as a member of katie roden on a virtual version of the supercar and in game there a bunch of other brands place in the broadcast. Well sometimes those activation can be memed. Riot is leading the way bring sponsors into the league of legends world and often into east sports at large. I'm sure we'll be back with an update when they released the average minute audience numbers for this year's finals. Last year they said a new record for eastward with twenty one point eight million ama that's higher than the average for the nba or the world series rights. pr said.

Should You Resign and Go Full-time as a Creative?

"Are you thinking of joining the great resignation of twenty twenty one tired of working traditional job and wanting to fulfill your creative calling but just not sure if this is the right time or if you can actually make a living doing this and this training i'm going to help you figure out exactly how you can take the leap of faith and start doing the work that she loves in that. God's gifted you to do artists musicians and creative all kinds looking for help balancing your passion to create with your everyday light not sure if your faith can coexist with your profession. Welcome to a place where real artists discuss realize. You're listening to the ghana gameshow visit gone and gigs dot com for show notes links and more information. Hello and welcome to the got engaged show. My name is alan see paul. I'm your host and this is show all about helping you to build a better created life from the inside out by applying timeless spiritual principles to temporary create problems that you might be facing if you're new to the show or even if you've been listening for a while i hope you'll go ahead and subscribe in follows that you can keep up with everything that we are offering you as a faith. Focus christian centered creative and one of those things that i believe. We can help you with is helping you to determine how to fulfill the calling on your life as a creative now. That does not mean necessarily that you have to be doing the work of a creative full-time but we're finding out more and more especially in this period post pandemic in this new normal of cova nineteen that we're we're being forced to face what we can really do with our lives in whether we have the time and whether we're really stepping forward to do everything that got us gifted us to do or if we're letting beer or Insecurity or uncertainty. Stop us from doing those things. And i'm here to help you to answer the question. That might be keeping you from doing just that. So this is what i normally hear from creatives. Who have not gone into full time or even part time work as a creative. They've got this. Gifting gotten ability but they are kinda stuck in feeling like fulltime work in a traditional job is their only option to make a living in usually they say things like i don't know if i can make it a that's just for people who are super talented. I don't have the resources. I don't have the time i gotta do this. One particular job that just gives me security. Well my friends. This is exactly why. What business experts are calling. The great resignation is happening because according to Some data that. I'm really even now on my forbes on forbes i think there's also. Npr side is a couple of links might put underneath hearing the description but there are over forty percent of workers in these different service jobs. Who are saying. They've had enough that they are ready to move on to better jobs. Different jobs but not i would say the majority of them are really looking for better lifestyle. Better flexibility more control over their time and you see creatives and entrepreneurs like us who are able to make our decisions in own our careers own our work and be able to make decisions even though doesn't always mean you'll be raking in the cash. That's not what i'm promising you but it does mean that you will be a master in control of your own destiny and be the person making those decisions that can really ultimately benefit you way more than any traditional job possibly could because most of these jobs the ceiling is whatever your pay raises whatever your pay scale is but when you are truly walking in faith walking purpose and making wise financial and creative in business decisions you're really in control and the sky is really not the limit. It's really all determine. How fully you embrace the god given talent and the principles that can help you become successful as an entrepreneur. So let me answer that question. Can i make it as a creative with another question. Has it been done before. Are there other creatives. That have started with little or nothing or less than you have. Who are now making a living doing the creative thing that god has blessed them to do and the answer clearly is yes. I mean i will start with myself. Even though i come next and combine my incomes between by work in ministry my working my church and my freelance work in the work. I'm doing right here as i'm speaking to you. It's all based on the fact that i took a leap of faith to become a full-fledged creative and that i'm not depending on any other source other than god in my own abilities that he's blessed me with in order to make income from my family and here telling you that yes it can work. Yes you can make a living doing what you love. But i'm not the only test case. I'm not the only example. There are so many people in the guide engaged show library. All you gotta do is just simply go down the list. Go through our archives to garden gigs dot com slash category slash. Podcast go through all of those links and see all the creatives that are also making a living doing what they love. people like. Chris greenwood aka manifest episode when twenty just interviewed him recently and another in individual in our community tobias tanker. We just interviewed him in episode one. Twenty three local musician whose doing amazing things making a living doing what he loves john. Mike coup roden entire e book on this subject on how to make a living as creative as a musician. Germain morgan assailant sinead. Trent phillips current. Brantley a j mills. The list goes on and on. I'm really base. Just going down the list of all the people and got engaged in our community who are proving that you can make a living doing what you love and they are earning a living but more importantly they're pursuing they're calling do not allowing fear to get in their way and i cannot tell you enough that that's probably the question you need to ask yourself not cannot make a living doing what i love but would i allow fear and intimidation to stop me from doing what god has called me to do. Just because i'm worried about a paycheck which we found out during the pandemic is not guaranteed is not something you can always count on is something that can be here and be gone tomorrow and so for those of you who are thinking about joining the great resignation. I would say doesn't mean that you should just jump out tomorrow. I love john. Mike said in his book talking about whether or not to take the leap of faith. He does say that you had. You gotta have a plan to jump out of the plane. Don't just jump out without a parachute and without a plan on exactly what the wind speed is out. How far you will go up before you jump how long you have before you hit the ground. In other words emergency funds security in terms of how much you'll need to start their businesses. Or how much you'll need for advertising the community around you all of these questions that i'm talking about in terms of planning on how to go full time are in a free resource. We haven't gotten gigs. Which is simply the four questions to ask yourself before going. Full time kind of self explanatory and you could find that a garden gigs dot com slash questions. But i just wanted to center in on the key first question in this little talk with you. Are you truly pursuing. What god has given you to do all you letting fear stop you. Because fear is not a reason to stop not security in worrying about a paycheck week to week is not a reason to not pursue this because as we found you actually have more security when you take matters into your own hands and at least you're not depending on one source of income for your entire livelihood. Now you've got different options things what you can use the job that you have right now to help start financing the job that you want later as a creative musician freelancer. Whatever you do those things can be financed and you can start to build a career that you can be really proud of that is in your control and that really uses all of your creative gifts. It's possible i wanna tell you right now if you're thinking about joining the great resignation don't do it haphazardly. Don't do just out of you know everybody else is doing it. I'm tired of this job. I'm just going to quit. That's not wisdom but it is also not wisdom to simply stay in a spirit of fear. When god has given you love power sound mind that can then be applied to your creative life to building create a platform that we have so many resources at got engaged to help you do just that but i just went to center in on that back. The question you're asking yourself. Can i make a living doing what. I love as a creative. Is it time to take the leap of faith. Gotta pray about that. Think about it mega plan use our guiding gigs dot com slash questions of resource to help. You make that decision. But i can tell you. There's no better decision you could make than to really trust god trustworthy put inside you and go out there and make a difference doing the thing that only you are gifted to do the creative thing that will add value to the world that will bless god bless others even inside or outside the four walls of the church you're needed and your voice and your message should be amplified so i hope that's encouraged you today once again make sure you subscribe followers. Show makes you stay connected with us so that you can continue to become the creative that you were created to be. god bless. We'll see you next time. Thanks for joining us here at the garden gig show leave. Leave us a review on. I like our facebook page or visit. Gone and gigs dot com. And tell us what you thought of this show. We'll be back soon. In the meantime create something amazing.

We checked into our Magic Castle Hotel the day before the night before so cool I found it because somebody was talking about doing a weekend up. La from down here in San Diego and said does anyone have recommendations for good hotels for kids. And so I looked into it and I sent you a link and you had been there with mom right. Yeah but you guys went. How long ago? Because it's new. I think what it was. It was this weird transition where they had these bunkers next door or you know what might have been the same apartments. They must have bought the building next door that was apartments but they were really old like we were one of the first ones to stay there and they look kind of like army barracks or really old nineteen fifty s but they weren't fancy. It just felt like you were in. Someone's like they had a stove and kitchen news. There's a weird part of so cool. Though I was totally did they was. It are painted bright yellow. Like how it is now. I don't think so. I think they were. I think the quite get out I think you probably got the newer fancier version. It was cool but it just looked like they had just taken someone's minds apartment building so you must have had the pre phase so it was super cool. I went We pulled up. They have underground parking when we walked up into the lobby and to really nice people were there and I wrote down their names because they're cute Thomas and Elizabeth and they checked us in and went through this whole list of stuff. He reminded me of like a Paul Red and she was kind of like Another I feel like everybody is probably in the business at some level rate. You're probably on everybody's kind of slightly beautiful and slightly on their their great though. They're so cute so they went through all the list. And here's what sold me As a place for kids They had free snacks at the front desk. You can go down and get any snacks you want like full size candy bars anytime hell for free. Yeah for free. They had complimentary breakfast in the lobby. which is just your pastries and fruit and cereal? And all that good stuff coffee. They have white glove hot chocolate service for the kids.

You get out and go to the red phone hang on the wall there and he lifted up and popsicle please and they come out with their little white gloves and a silver tray and popsicles for how super cute yeah and then the inside of the place was like you said kind of fifties style apartment and it did have the old stove and old cabinets and but it's all painted and they redid the floors and nice beds and so I didn't mind it at all. I thought it was cool. Like a little retro different than when I went there. Yeah that sounds really cool. You know what's interesting though is for being so kid-friendly isn't there only one period of time where the kids could to go inside the magic castle right so it's a building right next to it. You have to walk across a big driveway to go over to the actual magic castle. Which I've never been to? Yeah and it's adult only and it's like black-tie right. You have to wear fancy clothes. I mean just a little nicer polka effort nighttime shows And they said kids are allowed for the branches. I think think they've Saturday and Sunday brunch so filled up because it was the weekend before Halloween that we couldn't get in so it didn't work out this time but now that we know about it do it again. The kids loved it there. They were all over. It really doesn't even matter if you go inside the Magic Castle. You could just have fun at the hotel. Yeah totally you guys because because they have Yamashiro. Restaurant is the big Japanese cool restaurant on the hill. Right there stop that right behind the magic hustle right. Yeah I forgot to tell you about it. You could go. Oh and they have a little pagoda. Gouda get to go down and look over the hill from a Japanese pagoda and then you go inside and I think they may have filmed a little bit crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Inside. There's this really cool. Outdoor were indoor outdoor dining area. Where they have some kind of coy looking thing in the middle? And then you feel like you're outside but in Japanese paradise Like Karl Strauss done here. The beer gardens a little bit. The Koi yet liked except just one main central indoor outdoor courtyard where you dine around the outer edges. I see I see you went to the Roosevelt Hotel which is very walkable. We had to walk like a block. I guess and went on to the historic Roosevelt Hotel and I went to what was it. Called like twenty five cents or something Anyway Hamburger Diner Yeah Roosevelt's cool it's they filmed a movie with Johnny Depp and they have a real nice outdoor pool that has been used in several films. That's famous hotel right on. Isn't that the stars and ghosts. Yeah we referenced in our Ghost episode last year. With your seance lady that was. What was her name again? Kathy the Patty Patty Negri Petty negree medium for the stars. Yeah yeah she was walking around around. There felt a little haughty. We didn't go to the pool. We just went for the food and and left again and then we did. All the touristy stuff walked around the Chachi shops and looked at the stars on Boulevard and when over to the Chinese man theater but the it was all like quartered off because they is that how you set quartered off cordoned coordinators had ropes around and stuff and they were setting up this huge premiere this red carpet premiere for the new Terminator. Sure I since found out after we left in came back to San Diego. They had to re schedule. Because of the wildfires Oh fires which started up that Sunday morning. I think or no Monday morning. Yeah Yeah 'cause we woke up and it was smokey. We did the Guinness Guinness Book of World Records Museum. How is it was cool? It was really cute. They had a lot of good kid. Activities like different kiosks where you could like test your skills skills see if you can type as fast as this guy and throw the ball and scream in this chamber we there's a screaming see how how many decibels you could scream out. And I'm like Gosh. I have video video. The kids go nuts in there. That's cool yeah. All sorts of sounds good as a tourist. Is it satisfying like a day in Hollywood. I always look and and say God or people disappointed because it's kind of dirty and scrunchy over there but move but it was such limited time we really only went for like one one night in one morning. So it's a longer next time. Is there enough to do yeah. We got the multiple pass for all the museums. We thought we'd have enough time to you. See the Wax Museum. And then the Ripley's believe it or not but we didn't and the pass wasn't that expensive much more expensive than the regular entrance fee so that that would be something we'd do next time we didn't get to shop a lot like it would have been fun to go. See the Rodeo drive and melrose and but Oh toby got to go to the supreme cream store so that was his big he and his hat or two year old boys in like that obsessed with at that that age guess jeans and all that was earlier. I didn't have a thing. I don't think I don't either. Yeah I didn't either.

I'm going to radio and then all of a sudden it comes on and it's like so freaky yeah I mean these are like jokesters who we designed this car because they have a whole fart thing on it where you could make people seats far. It's crazy like who would design the Super Fancy high-tech cars than have fart seats. Yeah there's whoopie cushion buttons and then you can ask us set your blinker to noise. The Tick Tick Tock. Because he's funny Elon. Musk in many people in the higher echelon thinks it's funny. See Not all right back to the story so you came on the why you got your parking.

We've met a few of them on the PODCAST. You've done little mini interviews with him. Who is who is on so far dating story guy? Oh Yeah Jackson. County Guide Jackson's funny. And then I I think that's you know mostly like Eddie Marie family. We're with you. Yeah and then I'm GonNa move this story along. Yes US then. You got into a golf cart with us in. We zoomed around got to see the true blood scenes and we got out a day above that Yeah yeah at least that one the kids too. I mean it was the day before. No me weekend before Halloween. So they were like a hundred houses was go in and they're creeping around. There was like creepy stuff. I think we might have been in Lafayette's house because there's all this stuff like spray painted on the walls. And ooh. Yeah that was cool uh-huh what else did we go into or that one house but it was offices are we having it was this out. Warner village is a street street where it looks like. Just a bunch of desperate housewives street it kind of looks like that all the nuns at universal but yeah so we I said Oh yeah. I can't think of anyone. Living there are another sets. They're just empty. You can go in. Charlotte runs out of the golf carton goes in and then it's like someone's office. She's like we all fall in quick back out and then and then we went to another stage. I think we're going on the set of young Sheldon uh-huh okay here's young Sheldon's house like come on and see where the set first house we go in and there's like a man sleeping leaping in the middle of the floor so and then some lady comes out she goes. Hey I go just showing the kids and the FA- she goes check lorries here here. Chuck lorries the big show. Creator of like two and a half men of that show. Three Elliott give going back check lorries sleeping on the floor. Is it Chuck Laurie Sleeping on the floor. I don't know who knows it was just a man on the it could have been who knows snapped a picture of him. Yavapai Elliott. He couldn't I was like Elliott's go. It's like it was so so if thrall but it's me on the floor. He took a picture of a picture. They've pulled it up multiple times in the relevant everything they look. They go check long. It's like so weird so we were there. We went to Charlotte's favorite show. Oh folder house. Not Her favorite but she knows it. Those crash there stage and snuck around took a handful of candy from some coffee. Oh my God you guys. It was like a set which I didn't even want to tell you but usually those their props and they've been sitting around for ten ten years and you just keep reusing and you guys are digging your hands in there. He's POPs his. I didn't see them doing it. Luckily Jolly ranchers so those NAS forever. Ever Charlotte ran into the makeup room. But she start stroking the whig of some. This is the grandma's wig and start playing with sharp. She knew a lot of stuff she she was like. Oh this is the brother. And she's like Oh this. Is the couch that there's a whole episode about the dog getting on the couch and the DAD got really mad and they had to cover it. Was this whole. Oh how that's so funny. No so I wonder in their brains like was this. It didn't seem like it was so fascinating to them but was it. Do they understand behind the scenes a little bit. I think if they had been avid watchers of any show they would have been like. Wow No they got it. They understood how have important and popular and all this stuff. This is but I think they've been around it kind of with you mix since forever and then when we filmed our little movie at home I can tell you this is really what it's like doing a movie. And then they got to see the other side of it too because when we showed our friends the little alien movie especially Little Hadley. She got all excited about it and she came to our house. Revisited all the scenes. What the the alien crept around the corner and she can? I do it and she liked put on the alien suit. She owner those cute to see like. Oh we're Kinda like stars the still yeah so mystifies it. It's really cool. Yeah Yeah for you remember your first onset experience besides my audition for milk and my sick body we did go to dad EH. Dan was in the TV show. Partners in crime with Lonnie Anderson. Linda Carter so we he was playing like a bad guy in jail or some lecherous assuras tattooed character right and we got to go on set with them for the day and I sat on Linda garters lap. Did you do. I don't know I don't think so so. I think I was standing next door going I. It was like some police station scene. And yeah seeing the set and standing on the side and watching the whole thing. Yeah it did demystify but it also made it very cool too. Yeah I don't know I think wonder woman that was a big deal like that was hero and to sit on art APP. We didn't we on the Andersen did we. She wasn't there that day. I think we did. We do under Carter was more. Yeah I remember the same. Yeah Yeah and then that picture. We took a picture with her in that followed us around our whole lives and we duplicated and it was such a precious photo because before digital rights. Yeah picture I think I might have that anyway. So you guys we jumped around we went to Lucifer set for for Dave and his CO worker. Wanted to see that and And then we went into the archive building. A remember. There's premier for something thing with Batman there. They announced it. It's called the. Hbo Max but it's HBO is They just launched launched new streaming service. which is what we thought and they had it all like you know behind walls and security guards everywhere like nobody can know and it was this whole secret thing? We finally found one security guard to tell us what was going on and he said it was an HBO conference. There are having a huge party there and yeah. We saw the batmobile on some huge rubber duck from. I'm assuming it's like a joker thing right it's Batman to okay penguin or they had the big rubberduck stuck in the river below. I remember that written by our good friend Dan waters. Oh you wrote Batman to that. We hung out with member that he was such a nice guy. Okay Yeah I think should be funny. I know. camelot he heather's anyway. There's then then. We were building where we got to see all the Harry Potter Paraphernalia. Yes all the superheroes no is it. I'm GonNa Mike make a Lotta nerd brains explode right now was up. Marvel or DC that as DC DC. Okay yeah so we all all Disney. Okay we had. Our men wonder woman who else was in there. Well Harry Potter. All the Justice League Justice League Justice I league in fabulous beasts. What is out miraculous piece? What's the other Harry Potter one? Forget forget it. I don't know yeah family's incredible these or something. Yeah so cool that is cool and then you guys is whenever we went to the whole costume warehouse that was cool too big gigantic. Like there's hundreds you just walk in. And there's thousands of shoes news from all eras and then it was like a huge warehouse. I mean Florida's ceiling imagine going into Costco and seeing racks and racks and racks of clothes. All the way up to the ceiling throughout the entire warehouse it was like and everything was labeled you know nineteen thirties birthdays. Young Boys Nineteen Thirties. Young girls and you could go down any I'll go home and medieval section there's a whole Spartan section. It's crazy it's crazy vegas. They had bathing suits. They had retro. It was like everything you can imagine. So do they are all the anything that people have used used on. Any Warner brothers. Movie is there. I don't know how that works. I should find out more about it. I think yes probably but then maybe some go with the show and earn outsource but under no maybe for standard extra things. They have a lot of stuff there. I would think if you're getting into some really fancy movie would have a costume designer that designs a lot. And maybe the the stuff that's sitting around as background for the hundreds of extras and maybe for things that are just like period pieces were you. Don't have to get like Johnny Depp in a movie where you want to get real specific. I'm sure they design stuff for him. this might be able to secondary or if it's not as important if it's just throw the guy in the suit I don't know that's my guess because the designers are going to want to design and put their stamp on it and make it special. Yeah there was one that was featured in a lot of the displays as to WHO She was in that little movie too where they tell you how because from script to screen in she was the costume designer talking about it was really neat yeah. Her stuff is beautiful beaded stuff and she did What was the Lady Gaga Bradley Cooper Stars born? Find Her name later her. Yeah we went on the set of friends or not the set but they recreated the central perk in we did a little photo op there. It was kind of the tourist trap. Grab a gift shop area and we did a green screen with about mobile mayor cycle thing. Yeah yeah go through. Oh sorry. Oh don't tell that story say say weans when decay embarrassed us at the cash register making us all exit stage left really fast. She just did something that was fun. Here sorry sorry. What's funny? Oh forget it anyway. So anybody who is interested in this kind of fun can take the Warner Brothers Studio tour. I I think if you pay. I don't know what it is. I'm guessing it's somewhere like seventy bucks could go into a little tram and they drive you around and show you all of what we talked about. And and so. I told my friends about this when we came back our friends that were featured on our last episode. My girl's trip friends and they're like let's go up and see Ellen. Because does she thumbs there in. Try To do a whole Ellen weekend and do the LA thing up there so Fun So yeah maybe you like Ellen. Does she have really really good topics. And I get depressed when I watch talkshows yeah ooh I know why I like her. I mean she's very like you know. ooh mainstream America Sweden Q.. And I like what she brings on any little guests and they always show clips on facebook and stuff. So I see it there but I don't like watch it regularly. Ah But yeah it's it's nice. It's cool acute. Were Brad Pitt was in the audience and nobody knew it and he likes wild fun all right so close out the day of your day and would well you went to dig whipped cream on top of the warner brothers. Sunday was when you took us to. The filming of a scene of the rookie was much with the way up in Griffith Griffith Griffith Park. And it's GONNA be episode. What did I say episode called Dealie? Yes yeah and it was great so we drove in Griffith Park You just said hi and everybody lets you buy and you just parked up at the whole crew like usually do. I'm sure her in. We walked up this trail to where they were wrong. Hollywood they normally have that closed off so only bikes can go through so now all the Mount Hollywood is where they film a lot of scenes. Where you know people are out in the woods or in the dark driving down the Pine Tree Road Dino Lot of we've filmed up there several times for defy notice? There's like different trees Greg. So they've actually planted it up to look like different like areas. I think just the park. I'm guessing but maybe more of a pine filled I don't know yeah 'cause I said different groves at different types of trees that look like awfully grew different trees there. Maybe because very film friendly in Griffith Park they really want to get filming there so it makes sense yeah jeeze because because think about how many movies are pines in the woods. Great does use that all the time. Yeah so we walk up this trail and and The whole crew up there and we're telling the kids be real quiet you know they're actually going to film so you have to make sure your phones are off. Newt no pictures. Listen so we Kinda Seidel up to the back of the crew and you're like Kinda waving and everybody whispering high high and then we see them marching up rehearsing their scene and sets this whole cop seen with guns and and I'm not going to give it all away right because this is all stuff but It was cute because as they finish the rehearsal and then Nathan fillion the lead guy. meet some and modern family and firefly. It was a modern family to. What did he play modern family? I have no idea. I just know that I write that on things. Sometimes they need to drop names in house or something. I don't know so he was standing there after they yell cut or whatever and he He goes there's A. There's a loss family in the woods and he pointed us out and it came walking over. Everyone chuckled chuckle and he shook hands and introduced himself as the kids. Names were in the suite was so nice and then he was talking about he goes okay guys. So what's the shiny three leaf like we was telling us about poise snow. GO WATCH OUT FOR POISON OAK. And then he was so sweet and then he goes yeah. He got crazy poison oak last month and it was so bad. I'm super allergic project. And then he went and filmed some more scenes and then came back and showed all the pictures Kinda saucy because he had his shirt off. Oh boy no I know he was showing seeing some poison packs rub your takeover goodness. ooh Yeah very handsome in real life. I I don't yeah like I don't know I didn't notice him him on TV. Mitch okay. Another actor another show but I was like all his skin is so nice and such serious together very well and it was a super tall but he wasn't sure he was just like a nice normal guy super kids and at the very end I was like. Do you mind if we get a picture with you after you showed all his poison pictures and he was like. I was hoping you'd ask her like I was waiting for this. Yeah Yeah you took the picture. And then he was kind and of arranging us like okay. You stand here used in here and it was really cute so yeah and then after that we left and but mean in the meantime we were talking talking to inbetween takes that. You're talking to the stunt coordinator. David Roden David Roden. Who talked about in the last episode? Love that Guy I so nice. He looked like just a huge buff. Woody Harrelson to me. Yeah you did iron men and men in black. He was like some of the main guys. Isn't that for jumping out of helicopters US talking about falling onto boats Mike fight scenes and going to glass windows and just take it day in the life. Quick Novick deal and so now. He's a coordinator which means you can. It's great I think people do that when they get a little older. Or you know you just get up to certain level and then you. You don't have to do the stunts anymore. You just coordinate. Everybody that's what he does. All the stunt guys will come and they'll run through all the seens and school. Yeah little things like lift if this leg instead of this leg he was talking about that and yeah and how long it takes and how tired you get and really cool stuff nice guy totally talking to us a lot. The kids really were impacting fries. Remember WH- Hamlin's go up but burgers and fries and the fries and double fires. They love that they thought that was so cool. And then you're tactical guy. What was his name? I have to insert that. I'm so bad I'm sorry. He's a great guy and totally forget. But yeah. He's a guy that used to be a detective used to work with sociopaths and murderers and Serial killers and so now he's consultant to everybody on how to hold their weapons on like Richard the other main actor. Oh yeah he was business too. He was super sweet. And he love you guys and plays this Sergeant Serge and he was like hey when any find a dead body. How long does it take like? If you unveil a dead body will it take like do you smell it right away. Does it take a second. Hit your nose. You know this little questions like like that and he has all those answers. It's crazy so he's onset all the time. Yeah yeah it was so cool to watch the scene come through and two sear buddy the Photographer to Kinda pre walk. The whole scene how he was gonNA walk backwards in. So how does someone kind of guiding him like holding hands on his hips to guide them walking backwards. That's the camera. They called a camera operator. Who is Brad who anyway did music with yes? Yeah and then Other marks right they had to take off just even the dirty trail had like different colored tape on Annette. where the they had hit their marks and stoned talk this way and then all the plants they brought in to Kinda fluff up the fully edge to make it look extra the Greens Funds Department onset? Greens yes these are my people. The garden guys digging that watching them snap twigs and get it all properly set that up and this is so neat yeah and then it was cute overall. I just thought it was neat that everybody was very like. Oh cool a family and it was like we. The stars is kind of like a word to see kids walking around and we see each other every day all day long and it's all business and so to see anything that comes in. That's like real life. I think everyone is so excited. 'cause they told you that you're like oh are we going to be okay like is everybody going to look at us. Like who are these people people and and they were all like kids at family. This is great they were taking Charlotte over to the scene where it was being shot. What were they had like some props that were really Interested yeah dead. And they were asking kind of educational questions like okay which which which dead body do you think has been decomposing longer? This one or this one this one and they're like you're right very good and then of course awesome like jokester dad type had to be like boo right behind her while she was he can touch it and she reached down touch. They're like it's just rubber to scare from behind and look great. Thanks guys. That's not. Just good about nightmares. Do they talk about that. Like did that penetrate the brain of craziness or no she was Charlotte was proud of herself. She's like Kinda tough with her brothers right and he's always messing around with her so she was like. I knew they were made out of rubber. I wasn't scared cared ugly. But she told her friends at school about it and so it was. It was cute. That's cute. I mean it's Kinda cool to know now that things things aren't real on TV. I don't know I remember having that lightbulb younger going okay. Those are all props. And that's all of this and that's you know right behind curtain you take away. The nightmare party doesn't because they still can't watch horror movies stupid can you. I mean Ooh if it's a good movie gets in your head yeah especially the psychological ones inside your mind. They're coming out with the shining too by the way Gosh I know that's cool. Yeah Listing Charlotte and her best buddy when as Annabel dolls which is another horror flick. Annabel my Gosh Josh. They're all obsessed about it. Yeah it's like you're eight. You're not supposed to be interred. Let's get a little dark side. She was 'cause we went into the prop house at Warner Brothers. And that's kind of a cool Like you another place. That's so weird. You can get telephones from all the way back from the beginning of telephones until current so so yeah. I'll post our video on our facebook group and it was the kids turning to a rotary phone. I'm like okay boys. If you had to call someone what would you do. Because I've seen this before I was just curious. You'll have to see what they did. It was pretty funny Yeah but that was cool seeing all old games old. Imagine now creating doesn't make you WANNA create a movie when we see all that stuff and I want to create a movie just being there in sneaking into someone set in pulling off props it just running we could. I mean there was like a Presidential Rubai obeyed all the kids. Go in there and say haram. That was favorite phone. Yeah those great. There's so much stuff to Z.. I mean you could really spend hours and they did up tours coming through to see parts of it but we got that the real tipper all inside we totally snuck in that costume department. Would you Out in trouble ladies did not. They did not think kids were Q.. Like the other show venture curmudgeon you. You had interviewed Your election betty awhile ago. Oh and he talked about trying to balance family and this whole work life thing thing do you want to pop it. And Bruce Sharp I love him. He reminds me of one of our uncles. He feels that you just have fun. Sweet Family Guy. And I'm GonNa let Papa Man Bruce Bruce Pop hi Bruce Julian how are you. I'm good what is your first. And last name Bruce Sharp. I know that already but all right now this is for the people who don't know a whole lot about the film industry. What do you do? I'm a rigging gaffer which basically means I support the electrical department by supplying power and lights and has phones going off. We are on the job. Bob Very Important Person I supply power and lights the electric department on location and onstage. So whether the company's building sets on stage age for permanent settler swing says we call them. I supply the power and the dimming capability or for out on location shooting out in Los Angeles or wherever I supplied where we are in now are in a neighborhood. So you'll come down before the shooting crew gets here and rigging setup cable that's correct we set up all the cable. Make sure everything's out of the shot or you know appropriately set so the cameras and the scene is all set without seeing our equipments but we're also three important for us to supply power to the sets. Everyone can plug in their iphones. This is pretty much all we care about. During the there's a bunch of eighty five people in charge. Your phone's thank you for that. What do you to the film business? That's a really long story but I'll give you the short version. I was in art at school. Doing filming photography had an opportunity to see a film set guy on the film set and just kind of fell in love with the whole or the whole you know it just drew me. And as far as like the creativity the actors the locations. The the whole way it was presented to me at that time was Very enticing and I just kind of fell at that time so so do you still have it or is it a bit of a grind. It's both I do love it. I love it we do. I enjoy it. We are in different locations occasions different places. Every day. We meet different people every day. We are able to work with friends Were sometimes able to you know. Hang out with people that we've known for years and still have fun but we do work hard. It is a grind. Because we're hours we early. We get home late. We work long average day in my average day is getting the work between four and six. AM and getting home between six and eight PM has that been a problem for the family or understand. I'm celebrating my twentieth year marriage. I think I figured it out. She's in the business too right. Has it been easy But it does help. It hasn't been easy we've raised two kids So it hasn't been easy but we've been able to navigate it pretty well because of our understanding timing of the industry and the business itself so a lot of people say that it does destroy marriages and family. Do you see that happening a lot. Or how do you make it work because those are a crazy hours. And she's a producer right. Yes I in my opinion you you you have to make the choice what do you what do you want. Do you want to work in this industry and have a successful career and be able to go home and enjoy your family and your partner or do you. You WanNa go have fun and and not be you know not have the traditional relationship and things at home and you know it's it's a choice. People are represented with choices every day. We run location for weeks or months at a time. We're working long hours every day It goes both ways but I think it's really just about a choice choice. You know whether or not you prioritize family and relationship correct because a lot of people do get divorces and maybe get caught up in the craziness of the you know. It's like a traveling circus or that's exactly what circus. Yeah a lot of people hook up with each other secretly because they're in some hotel room in Atlanta and people party afterward and like what stays in Vegas kind of thing or your family person in a and then you hold it together. Which which you've chosen wisely Bruce? I've tr- yes I have and that's what I wanted to do but I have to say the industry itself has been given me a lot of opportunities that that I've enjoyed I've been able to travel. I've been able to make income to help my family and be successful with our our kids and everything and so I do love the industry as much as it tends to beat all of a separate times I do love it I really enjoy it. I feel like I made the right choice and I'M GONNA stick it out as long. I'm so keep me and boy are they gonNA keep them Bruce. Sharp is one of the rockstars on the set. He's got his own trailer. He's got his own director's chair. When he comes down the road people stop and swoon? And say there goes Bruce. He's got a theme song that follows him not aware of that. Especially thank you. I'll tell you what the theme song it sounds like. It sounds like this sketch about put do for book. Thank you lose okay latest. But that's a little insight family balancing family were or yeah. Yeah it's a tough gig. I don't know how people can sustain A. I'm sure you only have limited time in this kind of industry you know is the money on or just takes a special type. I don't know I think to be. Yeah what is it a legend for punishment. That's not the right word. A sucker of what is term whatever who cares glutton for punishment that's at Glutton gluttonous literal sense but now a lot of people do it and then but then you'll find some people that say. Oh Yeah. I've been through three marriages. It just doesn't work. It has to be a industry person. Understand it I just think you have to be someone who kill right you being gone many hours many days at a time the benefit is then you get three months off sometimes true between projects just a lot of people. Don't take the time they just keep going. They don't know what else to do with themselves and they just keep yeah. I can't imagine like I need the breaks in between right well and you have time to do other projects to if you're a creative type you'd probably want to. We use the time wisely and I know all the big actors like even our cousin you know during his off time of filming New Amsterdam. He'll do like his music projects six or yeah so little film projects or plays in between you know you WanNa make sure to have that balance in a very imbalanced gig. I would bet this probably like are there other jobs. I'm GONNA stop seeing Lake by the way diener Semi Lake and my and and you're very trendy. I counted Toby's yesterday I asked just turned. Try to say something without like he did it. It was a thirty second story. He said about about fifteen times. It's crazy you really listened to your friends and stuff. I had my friend Rachel start going every so say as if breath and almost parallel to. It's just really weird. Try to replace like with another word or just say it at all you news like in the real meaning versus just a gap leg. Because I do not it's my It's awful well will maybe we'll look at it Okay I think we're out of time and I want to say that it's been a real pleasurable experience with you.

This week and we are both going to cover talk about an unsolved murder case. Yes. So. Would you like to go first? Yes, I will go first okay. I love to go first. So my sources are San Francisco CBS LOCAL DOT COM SF GATE DOT COM. And Wikipedia and I also looked on the Contra Costa Sheriff Official Page facebook. Can I, ask you a quick question now I feel like when it comes to solve cases, there are two types of people there are people that like unsolved cases and are people that don't like unsolved cases because. There's more questions than answers. So which one are you? I like unsolved. I mean I don't know if like the right word. I think that it's important for people to. learn. About unsolved cases because. As I say in this little right up I did the squeaky wheel gets the grease kind of thing so? I think it's always important to talk about them. My case doesn't have a ton of information. It's very very limited very short story chaos. Yeah, but I think the more we talk about this kind of stuff. The more likely to be solved, yeah. I mean obviously not always. We've all heard Jon Benet Ramsey, but in most cases these cases just need need more attention. I feel like. Also I heard about this. This came to my attention because I was listening to an FM. And somebody this was their hometown Oh. Okay, so they didn't cover it, but they talked about it and. It just because it's like a California, case I just I wanted to learn about. Yeah, okay I, I Yeah, do you like unsolved? Cases are don't like unsolved. Any kind of murder cases these I wish they didn't happen, but as far as unsolved cases like you said I think it's important to talk about them because We know that there's a backlog of cases we know that violent crimes are happening all the time, and you know the ones that aren't solved yet are pushed further and further back just because. There's so many hours in the day and you know in. Dry, up and crimes are constantly happened yes But as far as the like the whodunit aspect, and why did this happen? And you know I? Don't I find unsolved murder cases Interesting rather than although frustrating but interesting because To think about. what the fuck happened. Yeah is It's like a puzzle. You know if not the most important puzzle that we could. It still has all the questions. Right. Yeah, anyway. Sorry to interrupt. I just had I was curious. Always interrupt me I. Love It. You always have a really good point to make so it's totally worth it. Oh so nice to me. I'm like so naturally. Mean that even when I'm being genuinely Nice, I'm like do I sound sorry now. Because I. Honestly meant that that was. That was a great question. So the murder covering today is twenty four years old, and like we said it is still unsolved. This horrible crime took place town called Crockett. CROCK is a small town in Contra Costa County California. It's about twenty eight miles northeast of San Francisco. The population was. Three thousand ninety four. At the Twenty ten census, okay, so in the nineties I assume it was even less than that. Yeah, it sounds like a small town jam in the East Bay it slightly bigger than the very small town that I grew up in so i. kind of understand the vibe of this town I. Mean I think what's cool about that. Is you think Bay area the cal? You think barrier in California. You think densely populated, but there are these little gems of like small towns. Within the bay area and sounds like crooked as one of them. Yeah I think a lot of people have certain ideas of California is, and they'd be surprised if they left a very small area of California. So. Priscilla Lewis was twenty one years old. She was working at the only pizza place in this small town four corners pizza. She was known and liked by many from all reports that I found. On the night of September twenty fourth and ninety six persona went to use the bathroom. So, the pizza place was part of a very small strip mall called Valona Square Mall. It consisted of only four businesses at that time, although there were some vacant storefronts in the Strip mall as well. And the bathroom the. Went to was in the basement of the Strip mall. It was isolated. But also easily accessible to anyone in the mall itself Oh, so it was like open to everybody has like a disaster waiting to happen. The building has three entrances and three stairwells, which all lead to the basement level, so the basement level is isolated. Easily accessible, and usually there's just there's nobody in there typically right unless somebody is putting something down in the basement or using this this restroom. Yeah, and it sounds like that. You didn't have to have a key card or key to get to the access. Nothing that I found, said anything about fifteen to have like a key Carter Yeah I. didn't find that anymore. fucking sketchy man, yes! I am I getting fucking on facebook posts height about that just thinking of that. That's where you had to go to us on facebook post. somebody who lives in this town actually said that they remembered that bathroom and everybody knew that it was a creepy bathroom. You didn't WANNA use. Yeah, there was like a bar restaurant across the street and a lot of times I guess locals would just use that one. Priscilla didn't return from the bathroom. The restaurant Cook went to look for her. He found her body and called nine one one at ten thirty PM. Priscilla was battered strangled. Her neck was broken, and her face was in the toilet. WHAT THE FUCK! Man Police interviewed dozens of people. Took evidence, but no one was ever arrested in the murder of Priscilla Lewis in the wake of Priscilla's murderer. The town was obviously traumatized. Yeah and people came together to honor her as well as hopefully find her killer. Yeah, the school she graduated from Teachers Co, workers and community members planted a willow tree shortly after her murder a sixty thousand dollar reward fund was created by two local refineries as well as donations from the community in the hopes that reward would lead to the capture of Priscilla's killer. which sixty thousand dollars in the nineties in a very small town is so much money It's just a testament to how much this community really wanted to have. This case solved. And you have to think it was either a very very random vagrant, passing through this town or Everybody's neighbor right? Those are the options, right? It's so terrifying. Come the, and this is kind of the one of the beautiful things about a small town You know it could be. A double edged sword, small town mentality you know. but one of the beautiful things about a small town is. Everyone is family you know and this entire town felt like it was their sister, their daughter, their niece, their cousin, you know that was brutally murdered in this notoriously creepy bathroom that needed to be either shut down or locked. Yeah or have a security guard. Just shit situation. I have a question. You probably said this and I didn't listen or didn't hear you. How long you know how long she was gone I. She wasn't gone that long. It was basically like she was on a break and didn't come back. The Cook went to find her. I think it was closing time. Okay, okay, but the ten thirty so I'm assuming he was like. It's closing time. What's Priscila doing? Yeah. It was also the nineties, so it's not like she was. When we used to take breaks at work, and like get distracted on your phone or something. Yeah, so he was also probably immediately kind of like what the yes happening. Yeah, yeah, how traumatizing for him to find his friend Oh. My God that's so fucked up man so last year, the town of Crockett gather for a candlelight vigil to remember their friend their neighbour, and brings some much needed attention to this very cold case, the local news station went to the. The vigil and the pain that her friends and family still to this date was palpable. people were very emotional. I can imagine one hope. Is that with advances DNA testing. Her killer might be brought to justice was their DNA. Do you know did the article say if there is DNA at the the recovered any didn't specifically say DNA. They just said several pieces of evidence. Her friend said quote. She was a great kind person, but she was a fighter. There has to be DNA. There's absolutely no way. She didn't fight for her life, and this was quote from her friend Jennifer Sylvester also it did mention it one of the articles that it she did put a struggle. Okay, so yeah, so I am hopeful that there is DNA. Yeah some. Under. Your fingernails. Okay! Hopefully. Yeah I mean it's an unfortunate truth that sometimes people get away with the worst types of crimes. Sometimes justice isn't served. But hopefully, if these lesser known cases keep getting talked about like what we said. If they keep getting attention eventually, hopefully this case and other cases like it will get solved. Yeah, the squeaky wheel gets the oil and I hope that in some small way our podcast helps bring attention to these lesser known cases. Yeah, yeah, sure especially in this case if Priscilla did fight her attacker, and there's been so many advances in DNA. I'm really hoping that they can pull DNA from her and solve this case. Yeah I know. There's not a ton of information i. just really wanted to talk about it if you have any. On the murder of Priscilla Lewis please contact the office of the Sheriff Homicide Unit at nine to five, three, one, three, two, six, three, zero will post on our social media the Sheriff Homicide Unit, I believe it's out of Contra Costa County still. They also have an email and they also have an anonymous. voicemail tip line that you can call so if you know something and you were afraid to say something because you don't want people to know that it was you, I understand this is a small town and if it is somebody in their community that could be terrifying, but you could leave an anonymous tip. and I guess that wraps up my case, but I really hope that like I said as talking about it will help bring some attention to it. Yeah, yeah, I feel like it's important to talk about cold cases. You know because as time goes by. Here there's a here's an example say you are in a relationship with somebody and they acted very sketchy on the day. They came homely they were. Acting different personality was different for a day on the day. That something like this happened and at the time. Maybe, you didn't want to say anything. 'CAUSE you're in love with them, or you thought maybe that can be this person that person even put two and two together. Yeah, and then twenty years later. You're not with this person anymore, and you're thinking. Oh, my Gosh! That was a day, so and so came home late, and they had blood on them, or they were acting very strange, or they were acting bizarre at the Nia the service, and I didn't notice it and I. Just remembered like that, or maybe even if it was somebody from out of town, maybe you saw an unusual car that you never thought about. or even the killer themselves. Got Loose Lips ten years later. which happens all the time? shit bags talking too fucking much has solved so many crimes maybe ran into some fucked dirtbag out of our, and he said something. That made you think twice about it. Yeah, wow, what what a fucking scary case I'm! I hope they shut that goddamn bathroom down. It's just frustrating because I feel like women. All the time are putting those positions. Vulnerable People in general are put in those positions people in general. Maybe don't even consider themselves. Vulnerable are put in positions like that something as simple as having to use. The restroom can be dangerous. It is frustrating it frustrating well. Thank you for sharing that and I hope someday. PRISCILA gets the justice that she deserves me to. All right so my case this week that I'm talking about is also unsolved murder, and this is really close to home like. Really close to home. I'm going over my sources, I. I used a bunch of articles from the local Uber Center newspaper. The appeal Democrat and also used Google maps four kind of like a visual. Okay, so there's that. I'm covering the unsolved murder of Giro Llosa Gabay. Now that like I said this is close to home. This happened in my hometown. I grew up in. California. It's Northern California in the Uber Center area, and unfortunately this is one of those cases that leaves us with more questions than answers. So KYRA was born in not swallow called Mexico, and she immigrated to the United States as a young girl with her family. They settled in all of I California. Loved by everybody that knew her Cairo had a kind. Inherent Joy. As a child. She sang in her church choir. Charro adored her little brother and sister and she loved wearing high heels. By the time she was twenty. She had worked at express video on Oliver's avenue for three years. And gyro would bring home movies, which she would regularly translate for her mother in their entirety that is so sweet it and I just the included that because I think it kind of. Shows, what what hind loving person that she was a little snapshot of her soul Yes. Here's the thing I vaguely remember renting movies from xpress video. because Oliver's California is also a small town. Yeah, and Everybody went to express video. I actually the I remember for a sleepover. Re My mom rented the entire jaws series. From, XPRESS VIDEO! However. Cairo didn't work there when I went. We're about the same. We are pretty much the same age She was a year or two older than me, and this is maybe like I. Say Middle School, so she obviously didn't work at the time, but I did talk to a really good family friend Yesterday we had a conversation about China because she also went to express video my friend Veronica. She went to express video, and she said that these her word back in the day S poppin. Friday, night, Saturday night. Everyone was in their renting movies. It was like a small town video store in the early two thousands and late nineties. You know totally when we were young going to rent movies when your friends rover or when you're spending. The night with the free movies was like it was the bed. It was so fun, yeah! And I just wanted to mention this. Because Veronica didn't personally know gyro, but it was a testament to how infectious her personality was. She Veronica Remembers wrote just from going into rent movies. She just remembers how kind and friendly and warm she was. She was just the kind of person that you gravitated towards. It sounds like it. You know she just had a light. By the end of two thousand, five, Charro was ready to spread her wings quote. She had big goals and plans. She had been accepted to Sacramento. State University and was planning on starting in the spring of two thousand six. In the days leading up to her disappearance, Gyro and her family were packing for family trip to Mexico over Christmas. It would be the first time returning to Mexico City since moving to the US. They were all very excited to go especially Cairo because it would be. The first time should be meeting her biological dad. Saturday December tenth two, thousand, five Cairo worked at express video her normal shift and she even brought movies home that night. The family? To go to Saint Joseph's in Marysville for an early morning mass the next day. On Sunday. They have now. I looked at Saint Joseph's website. It's it's a pretty iconic church in Marysville. It's beautiful. It's a beautiful Catholic Church. I, I went on their website, and ours might be a little bit different because of the pandemic, but it said they have an ATM mass and Ten am Mass on Sundays. That's the church. That's like the highest point when you're looking. Over married. Yes, right? People yes, stands above everything. Yes, it's it's it's beautiful. Now. This was close to Christmas. I'm wondering if they may be had an early mass on Sunday and the only reason I mentioned the time of the mass because. Her family does leave pretty early on Sunday morning to. Maybe they're going to breakfast before. Maybe there was like a special holiday mass earlier that day. So. Let's get into the details of what we do know. So on Sunday. December eleven two, thousand, five. CHIARA's family leaves the house for Church around five. A M Charro stays behind to get ready. And she told her family. She was planning to meet them at the mass That's the last time they see her. She never made it to church. Not Worried at first, her family assumed that she fell back asleep and just miss mess. They get back home around ten. AM and Cairo isn't there and also a family car is missing. But I heard ide- and her cell phone were still in the house. At this point, her parents are starting to get a little suspicious, but there wasn't anything out of place or any sign of struggle. It was just very weird, yeah! Meanwhile. Around nine thirty that morning and nature photographer was walking along the bear river and came across a submerged car. This is about half a mile off of highway seventy, which runs directly parallel to I heading north and continue straight into Marysville. The photographer called Highway Patrol. Highway Patrol shows up and they run the plates on the nineteen, ninety, five green. Toyota Camry and find the car is registered to the gearbox family. It's the missing car. Highway Patrol then contacts Yuba County sheriff's Department and the Sheriff's office goes to the Gary Bay household about the car in the It's emerged in the river. Yeah, and it's at that point. Her parents know something terrible has happened to Charro. Then mutely start searching. They searched the riverbed where the car was found. They search her neighborhood and this is so wild to me because I am familiar with his neighborhood I, had a friend who lived there dated a boy in high school that lived in this neighborhood. It backs up to my neighborhood that I grew up in and I know now. The areas developed its more developed with housing. Yeah developments, but in two thousand five, it was mostly orchards and light gasfields. So they searched the orchards that grass fields, they even searched the feather river, which is close, but not. Super Close. At the the search turns up nothing. The FBI got involved there was. Dozens of volunteers from the community, the multiple local police community excuse me Mo multiple local police organizations highway patrol the. Yuba County. Sheriff's all were searching, so they searched for about ten days, and they didn't come up with anything God. In the meantime, one of the family members found a back window screen on the ground. In the back of the house, and possibly an window now I don't know if it was open or not. The newspaper article. Didn't say either way. Also according to the Appeal Democrat. It was never confirmed if the window had anything to do with Shiraz disappearance. Because nobody knows. Nobody knew so they did Find. Partial print. Yeah, but it never lead. To anything, but it didn't match anybody in the House. It didn't yeah. So like I, said for ten days search parties. Police organizations looked for Chiro with no results. Then on January, sixteenth, two, thousand and six by accident, motorists stuck in the mud, notice something strange in a drainage ditch along railroad tracks are Boga. Roden Oliver I. Sadly. It was the body of Charro Bay. She was wrapped in a black tarp and it appears her killer attempted to way down with large pieces of cement. Decomposition in recent rain caused her body to rise making it visible. An autopsy determined. Cause of death was blunt force trauma by an unknown object. that was blunt force trauma to her head. Some point after this an investigator from the Department of Justice was brought in to to assist in the investigation Shiraz murder shocked her family, the community and police alike. She did not have any enemies. She wasn't mixed up with the wrong crowd. She was just a beautiful young woman, starting her life. She was so loved in fact, her funeral was held at Saint. Joseph's the very church. Her families were members of. And over two hundred people were in attendance, many spilling out onto the sidewalk. Actually, my mom went to her funeral service. Cairo had had started working at the of the program headstart where my mom worked. She was an aide there. And they didn't know each other personally. My mom didn't know her personally, but they. You know passing in the hallway working in the same program. On your mom was just touched by the whole situation, it devastated the community devastated. I. Remember my I didn't live there at the time. Anymore had moved away for for a little bit I remember my mom talking about Cairo while she was missing and then just being devastated that she was found murdered devastated it. You're always hoping when somebody's just missing that. That's not what's. The situation as yeah, it rocked Oliver's small town of all it was it was. Very Sad, it is very sad. All of the communities in this area are very small. They are there are a bunch of small towns and Uber setters made up of a few small towns. In two and six governor, Schwarzenegger, or as we like to call him. The governator offered a twenty five thousand dollar reward. For the arrest and conviction of her killer, hoping that would drum up some lead swell. With billboards newspaper articles? Nothing brought any new leads. We're not that far from Sacramento, so I guess he probably just saw it in the local. Yeah News. Yeah. I thought that was pretty another reason. The governator is pretty cool yeah yeah. All right so here's some of the facts. 'cause there's not very many, so here's some of the facts that I got from the newspaper. Detectives determined that she was quote confronted. At about five twenty five am. I don't know how they determine that how they knew that what evidence led them to believe that and I don't know what they meant by quote confronted. I don't know if she was confronted in her home there no sign. That is the point where she was met with her abductor. Yes, basically, yes, and the autopsy also determined that she was most likely killed right at the conference confrontation or soon after So her body was found less than a mile from her house. So there is no evidence found inside the residence. None that the police are releasing. This is just it's very strange. It's bizarre somebody either had to be sitting there waiting for her family to leave or she stepped outside for something to grab something from her car. Or what have you and then somebody saw her? Yeah, so I talked Veronica in in a little bit at length. Length she didn't know Chai row personally like I said, but she said you know she was just one of those people that drew others near her. You just wanted to be around her. She said just as a rental customer. I remembered her. Yeah, and you know. She said there could have been, and this is her own theory GBS not long for Mitt. She's not a detective. I'm not either, but she said you know maybe somebody just. Grew and infatuation with her. From renting movies. she ran into pretty much the whole town there. Yeah, you know yeah so. I we did the case on the Yuba county five and so heartbreaking yet the Sacramento Bee did in my opinion, a A great two-part article on that case and I'm hoping this year would be the twentieth anniversary. of her murder and I'm hoping that the local newspaper will do a piece may be. You know see if the sheriff's office will release any more information to kind of breathe new life into the case you know we all know we all watch the same shows. We all listen to the same podcast. If you're into crime, you know that detectives hold some information private. Yeah, so I'm thinking that they have a lot of. Information that they haven't released. So you know. Maybe it's been twenty years maybe. The they'll come a point where they can release them to the public, and it will spark some leads spark. Some calls spark some interest in the case again. You know because I guarantee you. Her family and the community think about her every day. Oh I guarantee it, so it's it's. It was just these cases. That's why it's so important to talk about these cases, even if it's just on a little pod like ours. Yeah, just so that they don't get forgotten I agree. I agree I just wanted to end on a quote from Chiara's best friend. She gave a quote on When at one of the memorial services now they've had annual memorial services. Yuba county victim witness is in my opinion I used to work in the school district in the county. And you know you're mandated reporter, so you sometimes work with victim witness, and they are a county government agency and they. have social workers, therapists and advocates for victims and victims families of crimes. And in my opinion. I am so thankful that not only Chiara's family, but other families that have experienced traumatic. Murders in their family and traumatic violence in their family. They have victim witness to their advocates that go to the house. They talked to the family. They sit with family, offer, counseling and PTSD services for the family they. If there is a case where the it goes to trial, they go with family members to trial. They're basically like an emotional support system for families of victims so incredible it is so incredible it's so incredible I know somebody personally who has had who has dealt with victim witness, and they are in valuable to this community and H. I just wanted to give them a shout out because they are wonderful. So I wanted to end this episode with like I said. A quote from her best friend that was taken from the. From the appeal. Democrat at a memorial service. Quote Cairo smile brought smiles to others. Her laugh and Giggling drew people to her and her warm personality. Put others at ease. She was a beautiful person. She brought light everyone's life. She continues to brighten up by people lives. Being around her brighten. Your Day gave off a good vibe. She was always positive even when she was mad or sad. Like so breaks, my heart like I'm so sorry to get emotional, but it's just like shoes such a beautiful person. It's really awful and she dislike loved her family. You could tell like just from old news articles. You've just such a loving person and it just like so sad. So if you have any information or know someone who might have information on Cairo, Gharib as murder, please contact the Yuba County Sheriff's department at five, three, zero, seven, four, nine, seven, seven, seven seven. And I'm I. Don't know if you can give an anonymous tip but I'm sure there's an option for that. I'll post her unsolved murder. Case file on the Yuba County website post on our social media's and I'll give you also email n maybe exactly who to contact to ask for Yeah Yeah, so that is the those are two unsolved murder cases pretty fucking, sad man. Way Sad yeah, I mean. Stop killing women. Stop killing women and people to stop killing people in general. Although this is researching, this was happy. I was emotional for shore. Probably because I am more connected because I grew up in this town, I know these people you know people I know knew her, but I actually really liked doing these cases because. It's important to talk about him. It is these key doing the true crime. Cases are really really hard. But in situations like this where there unsolved. I think that it's more than worth it for me to be a little bit uncomfortable and to be sad. Hopefully shed some some light and some attention on these cases. Yeah. I agree because I. my hope is that. They'll all get solved? Yeah, like what if this you know we're? We're based in Yuba Sutter, so it's like what if someone from Yuba sutter happens to hear this? On his like what the Fuck I remember this then you know. Yeah, so I don't know rest in peace, Priscilla and try row and. You know rest in in love and I, just my condolences to both families and is just to lose. A family member is just beyond devastating. You know horrible. Yeah, all right well.

So for the longest time, I've been told to get it together and find things that will find you happiness and will eventually stop making you. Sad. So. Today. I stand in front of you thirty three years old and I've been still struggle with the sadness in my life. And I don't know I'm said I've everything family alive and I'm healthy you know in some parts. Today at Hampton. But I woke up feeling the same way I did. The day before and I don't know what to do. I constantly battle with it. I currently have been reaching out because what I'm feeling is so fucking exhausting excuse my language. I've tried praying to Allah to remove these feelings that I'm having. Shut me out of everyone. Has Gotten to the point. That or at least to me, it feels like everyone's kind of over what I'm saying. Because they've heard before. But that's how I feel. That's probably not how they feel. But you know it's just that mind that tells you things. So. This power sometimes has really. Taken over my mind and I sit here during a different face than the one I'm hiding. I don't want people to see that face. But I expose it to to my loved ones I, show it to them because I retell to them. And I hope to God one day at a different face than the one that they've been seeing the bad one. I, WanNa make them proud and I'm GonNa make myself proud to because if they're proud shit I'm proud to. Get. In. My thirty three years away. F-. This. Is What I've done and I'm going to be completely honest which you guys have smoked weed drink alcohol I, pop pills I smoked K. two, which is synthetic marijuana attracted. By far about things that I've done. Is the worst thing. Because it grabs a hold of your mind. And that's account for now. But I wish to God I never try anything new or go back to anything that I have used because I'm sober now. By the grace of the IM and I and I wish to continue to be that way. So. Let me start. By telling you how it all started. So morrow with alcohol started when I was in high school. I can't tell you exactly one because I can't remember to save my own life I can't remember that day. I seriously, I don't remember when what time what year nothing. It's a blur. I never actually liked the Teesta all either in a matter of fact, at all the time after I have few sips, my friends were doing it and there were film the euphoric feeling of being drunk. And I just kept on doing until I. Liked the damn double itself. Then they were slowing down at the devil took over my body mind. To be honest with today's. I'm GonNa tell you something very personal some. They're really six until today and I makes me fully shit. Through one night that I remember I was yesterday. Actually. Don't remember the night. But the day after is what I recall so vividly. So that night I had come home after a crazy night of drinking and I got home and no shoes on and actually managed to get home with the grace of God and nothing happened to me on my way home stumbling and falling I made a home safe. With the minor, Bruce. When I got my house I changed my clothes stern born in my room I leave next to my mom on the couch.

Like I said thirty for thirty percent of my. Buddies. Live in the north side. And if you've been to the north side, do you know what I'm talking about? It's pretty crazy. I mean we all smoked weed, right so to get, we'd we didn't know anyone so would we would do as? We pull up to the. To the gas it was on Fremont Right. And every crackhead you could think of is there I mean these people don't have anything. Well, I had a bunch of black people. With. Nothing really and. My Buddy was actually renting a house from another Somali family that actually had properties for run. So it was pretty good and I'm not gonNA say any names because you know at the end of the day some of these people probably don't want to be named. So this is about me it's my life story. So, in order to get, we'd we'd go to Fremont. And I mean you give them five dollars and they'd give you like the worst shake ever if what we'd is. So. A couple. Of Times Oma. Would go there looking for weed and We'll get robbed by the credit and it didn't stop us. We still do it. I mean after a couple of times we stopped, and then we've found some other people to get it from SORTA Puzzle Story Back My studio. I mean the students lived in was basically a bedroom. But I had a TV at a Futon. And I had friends from Burnsville. You know what? I mean people that I went to college with and she TC. And will I every night you know even though there was classes in the morning we'd POW thirty people in there and everybody was just getting absolutely drunk. I mean, it got to the point where that. became the lifestyle. There was no more going to school. Literally dropping out each and every one of us like flies boom boom boom. What are we come to the city's for? We came for a better life to continue our education. But this addiction started for me. I said I was popular but popularity. Got Me something. I got used by people who were there that I knew. I mean, my house very disrespected I. Mean I remember one night we all went to the bar and I gave the keys to a friend of mine and I'm not gonNA see amy's not a friend either he's a FO. But you know. I wish him luck and his endeavors and life and everything I'd always better than anybody because I. Love Everybody. So I come to my house and I don't know what it's called, but there is there's a lock on it the chain lock they forgot to the bottom. So I open it and the chain lock is on and I'm like, Hey, man what's going on and lend me in He's got one of the girls that hangs out with us in there and they're both completely naked. I mean, these people probably wouldn't do that if they weren't so much under the influence. And it was just it was just crazy ridiculous. Oh man you guys I dropped out of school I drink like a fish. And it didn't stop there. I moved in with my cousin. On fourth and university and I mean, there was a bar stairs literally. Right. It was called Keegan's and right across the street was liquor store called Sir Dykes, and it was just meant it was A. It was something else. OUR NEIGHBORS HOLD WE'D But my cousin know all this. She was really oblivious to it. And all my cousins would come from Rochester who would just have a great time. At that time that was a great time but right now I don't even look at it as a great time I look at it as the worst time of my life because that's when my addiction was taken off. So me in deep addiction in my cousin, really worried about me and trying to care about me I fight with her thinking that she wants the worst for me that she's taken advantage of me. She's really not. So one night she comes home from travelling and her got into it. So I moved out and got a place on. Herod and Twenty Fifth Southside Minneapolis. and. That one went even more nuts I mean we got to the point where we're going out at night and. We worked I worked for Collection Agency, and I started hanging out with my Best friend. Now Greg. I'm going to say his name because he doesn't really care and you know he's really part of my journey and another friend of ours that I really don't talk to anymore which kind of sucks. His name Scott is the white guy. So. We gave that apartment up. But before we gave that apartment, what we did was we would go to the bars at and one night. We were so smashed we thought taxi driver was taken advantage of us. So what we did was we tried to get over on him, but we got over ourselves greg ended up leaving to cellphones brand new cell phones in the car, and I left my new phone, the cartoon, and my thing is when I use. Alcohol, whatever may be I'm sorry for the sirens I live in Riverside, gays. I lose my phone I. Lose My Shit I, lose my idea. I lose everything right? So. We run from the taxi only a ten dollar right guys. So we run from the taxi and halfway to the House we realized our phones are Gone Scott is the only one that had his phone in this pocket. So we get to the house the next morning just completely. Just devastated no phones nothing. A week later, we decide to move to Egan because that's where we all worked at a collection agency. So we get a duplex there and this duplex was the very top was the master bedroom. The bottom was living room and the very bottom debasement and I I had the basement, the boys, all of the stairs, and they all gave me privacy the all spaced, and they all respected me as a sister. But. What brought together. Partying. Every night would be a party at the house none fricking stop just constantly party party, party I mean. I last the last count I had was fifty bottles of Hennessy lined up on the top. Of The Of, our cabinets in the kitchen. Now we live eight minutes away from work. So we would drive to work, and then we'd have an hour lunch. Guess what happens Half of the Collection Agency drives with our house and my God it's a party for that. Our were all taken shots. Go back to work and we're talking about a storm. The four of us. Actually in Africa mentioned Berry Berry is a good friend of mine and I love them to death and you still in my life. We would turn up and go back and we were the number one collectors. At that company top collectors, we collect the show much money for that company yet we made so much money at the same time who saved nobody what did we do? We partied with every single dollar and? Greg had. Had A mindset where every time get paid, you wanted to barbecue. So that's four hundred dollars right there boom in half of the money is gone. The other half goes alcohol. Berry was the only guy that actually saved and he's still the one that saves until today God. Bless him. The years two thousand eleven. I get a call from the Somali friend of mine an old friend which he's not a friend of mine anymore because given circumstances he did meet completely shitty calls me up and he says, Hey, I'm at the gas station by Your House but I don't know how to get there.

The Purpose of Stretching: Overlooked part of mobility

"All to stretch park. Has I'm your host Eugene Torrance? We're here making stretching difference. Welcome. Our special guests lance matters. Are You doing today, gene? Fantastic happy to have you here You know you've been busy and got a lot of things going on with the teaching in classes and stuff like that so I appreciate your time, so let's dive into it. So sounds great so. I know that you are. An expert in this field. Because took a class from your dad and you've been there too as well so. Today's. Conversation is about stretching stretching very very very important. People take for granted, so we lead the flow which you, so, what is the purpose of stretching? Purposes stretching is to increase maintain the range emotions of your your muscles and joints. Stretching? It's probably one of the most overlooked part of training. You know most people when they're going to the gym or they're warming up to go perform their activity when the last thing I think about is really to go out there and warming up their tissue, walking up their body. They kinda show up to the location. They might take a short walk or jog to his everyone used to say you get to the field, and let's take a short jog to warm up your muscles and you know they might do a couple jumping jacks and toe touches and off we go. which is kind of the way we've always put the analogy to, and it's kind of like putting the cart before the horse. Notice when let's say even animal when they get up in the morning. First thing they do is there. You'll see them. They'll stretch the arch their back. move their legs around. Basically so stretching, you want to prepare your body for what's your one wanting to undertake? To help prevent you know injuries, and and also just to perform a little bit better. You're right. Yeah, you would think that I know a lot of people I've seen to Jim that go in the trainers day having them do a couple of things getting the treadmill for a second, but they're APP actually getting body ready. The muscle ready for the activities are going to get into and I. DO understand. That's where injuries come from their correct. Exactly, sitting, that's one of the most important things always tell 'cause we teach a lot of personal trainers what to do with stretching and kind of how to get people prepared because trainers don't really have a ton of time to work with their clients. If they're lucky to have an hour of most the time, you see a lot of the big, the big box centers eighth only got twenty to thirty minutes to get as much done as. As they possibly can, so they usually put the stretching off on them. You know for people to do themselves, or you know a lot of cardio. They have to do themselves. So one of the big things I try to teach. Personal trainers is trying to incorporate stretching into your program and let them know that listen. We're going to do some stretching for twenty thirty minutes before we get started. Okay, and here's how stretching is going to. Improve and increase your performance in what you're trying to accomplish now. I noticed now I've been to gyms. Go to of quite a bit so I noticed that I watched trainers training in any kind of makes me want. Pull my hair out. Because I noticed that a lot of trainers, not a student of their craft and they're not all. Input and some of get caught up in the roden in going through the motions, and they don't give their clients. They're all in a lot of them. I noticed they don't. Talk about stretch, and they think they say stretches really important Justice Dad. Do this net doesn't make any sense in? It kind of makes cringe to watch them. Work with their clients and not give them proper input. Well, that's the thing. A lot of a lot of trainers haven't been taught how to properly stretch themselves out soon and teach somebody else how to do it. It's kind of a foreign concept to them. You know a lot of the trainers you'll see out there or x-athletes. They've they've already been through it. The football baseball basketball players that you know. They finished up with their careers college. You know some of them professional, just the high school athletes, and then they're out teaching. They take a couple of classes and a couple of weeks you become. An expert personal trainer in you're able to go, it S. it's really hard because you know they're. They're really banking off their knowledge base of what did they learn when they were going through the training? It's not so much what they learn in school. It's what did they want? What did other people teach them? It's hard when you're busy to go out. Jake, a lot of classes and a lot of courses and is kind of navigating to see okay. What's important? What's not important, so we try to really stress a lot of these trainers to you know. Come in and learn how to do it even if you don't have three days to take a class or something like that, you know, go on line. Learn you know. Learn the craft lunch how to stretch properly? Because just a stretch related. You know just say well. I've stretched out well. There's a difference between you know, stretch type number a stretch you know, be and C. There's so many different types of stretching out there that you really Wanna learn the correct type stretching or what we feel is the correct type stretching, 'cause it's it's hard to big box and say well. Everyone's gotTa do this. We just have type stretching that really works well for people and you know so. That's what we've encouraged people to learn how to do so. The question I had an employee I was working where. She was a trainer as well, but the problem I came into with trainers. Is that is the touch? They don't want to stay in how a joint field! Our attended feel. When is too much? I know you say I know it's. Someone press you giving a client, but when you don't understand how it's supposed to feel and where there's an entrapment or bone on bone, a lot of trainers don't I don't think they know they. have an intimate knowledge on the information. That's a lot of things trainers don't understand. What is the range of motion in the joints? How much range of motion shooter joint half you know it's a lot of times when I work with clients. It's like when I'm stretching out there. Hamstrings in their legs straight there you're reaching up toward the sky if I can get him up to ninety degree angle from the ground. I would say that is good range of motion for just the average person who wants to just feel good meal. The stretch ninety degrees is perfectly acceptable. Always, tell my athletes. If you want to prevent pulling hamstring or having some sort of problem, you WanNa get to about an extra thirty degrees, plus so you want to get to. You know at least one hundred twenty plus degrees because you think when you're running. You know you're not gonNA. I'M NOT GONNA. Have to worry about my runners hamstring. Wow, that's good to know information. Okay, so so stretching is for this blood circulation increase in. Muscle. Elected in a muscle toy, Saudi contracting selection of contraction and helping loan gate the muscle as well so and I do understand that stretching when you are damaged, tissue and tissue is damaged. The faster usually forms to the was the where imperfection or the change in the past build a little bit of scar tissue Well Fash is you know when the largest things in the body is Fafsa? Fascist surrounds muscle tissue all the organs in between tissues everywhere in the body. It's you know from the top of your head to your toes. There's fashion. So everyone says well. We gotta you know stretch the muscle out. Well, you're stretching. The muscle also has to gain some elasticity through. This is the show which works good with the stretching. Is You know as you're doing the movement? The muscles have to stretch, and then the fashion has distrupt chess, but then we get into. You know one of the things that helps the FRAT. The fashion stretches well is. Doing the stretching, which will go into a little bit more about what active isolated stretch I keep saying are type stretching active isolated stretching. For those that are you know argues, or the concept of it some of what they call the to stretch. Okay well, the construct was invented by my father earned mattis, and basically it. It sounds just like you know what it says were only holding the second the the stretch for two seconds. Where does that two seconds start? It starts at the terminal end of the movement. So if I'm lifting my leg up stretching my hamstrings when I get to the very end of the movement, I'm only holding that stretch for maximum of two seconds. I always teach people when I'm working with them. Because you know, I have to show them exactly what to do to follow through, so they're able to do this. Themselves I'll teach them to get to the very end of the movement, and they have the voice out counted out a thousand, one thousand two back to the bottom. Okay, so that's another. At full extent, right Yup at full extension. We only hold it for two seconds. Okay, then we return to the starting position of the movement. Like a reset. You give body break to national and do the same thing. Okay constant repetition. In each time we go back to the start where reloading that muscle, full of blood and oxygen, pray bringing nutrients back into those muscles. Then we're going to raise that leg up. We're going to stretch out so with each thing we're almost pumping the blood in and out of those joints, and the muscles in it lubricates everything around there, so your joints. Your joints are moving. It gets that warmed up for the activity gets the fashion movement, and it gets the muscles moving. Okay, so we got three components of that the node leg basically To get things going. You know what I tell my clients I said. Assist threatens like the to second was like on the water. If you're going to hold a too long, then you suffocate, you get oxygen. Muscle started to micro tears, and he started having issues, so if you hold it for so many seconds, you have time to recover and Redo it again, and you gain more oxygen that goes. The muscles didn't actually help improve recovery. Is that correct? Exactly Yup Yup with every single movement where re-oxygenation that Muslim, it's like if you take a swimmer in this woman cool when they go underwater and they're going to hold their breath through ten fifteen twenty thirty seconds when they come up gasping for air. All the muscle says the same thing. If you're going to hold the stretch and hold it for thirty sixty seconds, and there's no blood and oxygen getting those muscles. Then you start feeling. The the muscle starts to almost fight back thing I've had enough. Please take me back. Pain they need to go. Jump in, don't go. Jeez, that's exactly right. It's the goal tendon organ, which is your fight or flight mechanism in the muscles and their their actual whole thing. The premise behind this whole bit of stretching is how the goal tendons work. Okay, that was based off of you. Know a professor at University of Illinois you know close to seventy years ago, wrote A. A whole paper on Sheraton's law, Dr Sheridan, which says that you know at a certain point. The Goldie Tendon Organ Fires off after about twenty seconds I'm Kinda. You know brutally you know summarizing what he said, but after two seconds. That's when you're supposed to kind of release. GTO's so that's the premise of my dad took a look at that as well. That makes sense. So why are we holding a stretch for sixty seconds only during one rep, you know what's the added that bothers me all the time I see people been touching and toilets, for like a minute or two or sooner ground opening. I'm like. Why are you doing that? You just you just killing you creating a problem for yourself and I see people astounding curve. Do Curve stretches with their calf I'm like that doesn't make any sense to me, but you know at. What and then also too I think. I think a big can conceptions come up because destroyed by pop up all over the places and they're? They're offering their type of service, but the general public understand what they're actually getting. If I'm saying that right making sense, yeah well and a lot of places that are opening up I've suppler of them that are out there. That are doing the correct type of stretching Dan. You know there's a couple locations around Boston. Stuff that he knows people that we have trained years ago and you know they just change. You know what we call active isolated stretch to to something similar which you know. We never trademarked active isolated stretching. My father was a professor that just says you know I'm out here to correct things and to make a difference, and he wasn't one that looked at all legalities and cop. We copy write at all over work, so people have changed and calls. Call it a little different things. But the the main concept that really. Sets off our stretching from others is this is a total active movement. Yes, which means the person who's doing this? Stretching has to engage their muscles doing the active stress, so it works with the agonists, antagonists stretch reflex. You have one side of the muscle. Working to move. In lifting. Let's say you're you're lifting your leg up, so if I'm going to stretch my hamstrings I'm use my quadriceps muscles to look my leg vertical past. Get an eye degrees possibly further, and while I'm lifting that leg up. My brain is sending a message to my quadricep muscle to lift leg. Okay the is also sending a second message to the other side to your hamstring. Says saying you need to relax. Okay so what happens if you're doing a passive movement? There is no firing neurons to either side at that. Okay do I need to contract? Relax? What do I do just lay here and go along for the ride? No memory. There's no real it becomes a full pass. That movement would know able. No way are you'll ability to tell where the end endpoint stretch really is, and that's that lies the problem for a lot of people. Say the first time you stretch. Someone out is like well. How far do I go? And my answer's always simple, it says. How far did they go you go just you help them a little bit at the end only three to six ounces of assistance, and then you take him back to the center, and then we do multiple reps, so we do these insets. We may do eight to ten Reps. You know with Saf I'm working with an athlete, just trying to get them ready for competition. I'm GonNa, do eight to ten reps with them. Get them warmed up and they're ready to go when all the stretches. The Sam I'm working with someone. WHO's you know they're coming back from? A think Parkinson's or you know have Parkinson's or stroke, and I'm really trying to get the muscle to learn to fire and to do things correctly. We may do multiple set, so we may. Do you know two sets of ten, and because we're trying to teach them how to refire those mosques scales. Yes, I agree. Okay, so let me ask this question so I noticed that when you tear a muscle strain of muscle, what Maffei massive questions, so what is important after you damage muscle for preventative injuries or pause after most been damaged? They say hey is rest. Don't touch it for like two three weeks. In I know knowing that one that process happens scar tissue sets in now. This is only exception if you tear muscle, or if you break a bone that some different, this is not this. This is only I think this acute cute injuries. So, what does your process? We're looking at when you injure. Snow meal fluids collective around the muscle scar tissue builds up. When did you start doing stretching therapy? Depending on the injury, let's say I have an ankle sprain. That nothing has been broken. No nothing is torn away from the bone. I'll take an ankle sprain and start working with it immediately I've I have a young girl that I work with on a weekly basis She's one of the elite tennis players and the world. She is fourteen years old and ranked in the top two hundred world for the for ITF Tennis. And she came in one day or is working with her brother. Basically or dad was basically carrying a wrench she had framed on under tennis court. We got three days till she goes to play the Davis Cup for the Davis Cup for for fourteen. So I got just a couple of days to put her on a plane. Otherwise, they have to cancel in place. So we started immediately, so we started. I started with ice and we started with ice in some gentle, you know. Not really at massaging technique with it. I'm not a massage therapist the. We used Yup so we used the. My favorite thing to do is I. Take Dixie Cups not freeze them with ice. CIRCLE MASSAGE And we worked to get the swelling down on it soon as I. Get the swelling down and things are feeling a little bit better than we started doing the active movement and stretching. Okay, we stretch the ethical out and get things moving as it wasn't a you know her. Luckily, your uncle's a doctor, so he took a look knew nothing when it's torn and things like that, so we were good to go. Once we did that. We got things moving. We actually started with a strengthening immediately starting to get the muscles to fire again as good. We've finished through that and then we finish so so then. Based processes you do with a performance athlete athlete. At the topic. Today I says a big thing after one hundred years of using ice. Now they're telling us not to use is what you know after working with some of the you know. I've been very fortunate growing up in a household with someone who works at a lot of big athletes and stuff for years. You know everyone I've ever seen with injuries. We always started with ice with injury. And you know it's work good for us for years. Some people don't like ice, but it's always worked for us, so we we continue with the. Process and it continues to work. You know what my ideal of ice is more or less like it wants to. Injury occurs ice to me. I may be wrong. Slows down the flow of the blood of the circulation specific area, and then when slows down, you have you increasing decreasing a certain amount of blood, white blood cells to come into the area by warm by certain movements, because you've got to send troops in it for recovery, and that's my ideal and I'm thinking about. Ice is to help minimise the circulation epic era to get the proper help assistant to the air to Kinda hippie recovery. Am I wrong with that. Now it's you're exactly right. So what we started out with the ice on ZANU 'cause by bio visor, construction of the cells and everything they shrink down and they close up. Okay then what we do when we start moving again. We start getting Bazo dilation. You're opening up. Those blood cells against what we're getting is a pumping sensation. If you, it's like. A. Lot of people say okay. You sprained. Your ankle has put heat on it well. It's Kinda like I'm GonNa go to fire dominant. put it out throwing gasoline. Soon as you put heat on something heat. Tissue what happens when he warned tissue, it draws more blood into the area. So what happens, you throw heat on an ankle sprain and it'll blow up like a balloon. Yeah, so what we do is start with the ice. We I sit down. We get everything start to control the swelling. Then we start the movements, and now we're moving that that tissue and lymph back in there, and getting all the you know any, you know, damaged tissue and things like that. We WanNa really get the oxygen to that, so it can start the king process. Than when we're all finished, and we did a little strengthening work depending some people. If it's a severe sprain, you won't be able to do a lot of strengthening work. At first then we'll ice it at the end, and then we'll put a compression rap just to give it some extra support for a lot of people like to use. The, Tape and stuff which is great, as well staples so then we'll put the because they conceal tape really helps with the One of my father's good friends might mcgillicuddy. Rela- ease a therapist who works on Olympic athletes out of Orlando. Israeli said me a lot about the calcio. Cape and everything, so it's it's something that you know it helps the healing process. Weli you know after Yup, so not the stuff. Some people just put an ice standards on there, but instead of doing on the ace wraps nowadays. I started using kinesiology type was A. A lot of these athletes, because then it's something about how it pulls on the skin, and actually helps open up the fashion everything, so it continues the healing process through the whole thing, and the Nice thing is I can you can still ice over it and then before I'd work with them again? Take the KT tape off work or rain emotion motion. We start with the whole process until the pain has gone and. They're able to go back to activity against no I. DO agree with you because I took a class on typing before, and it works works really well and. Then to what you have going on, but you still gotta do to work I and use it as a support system to of help yourself. Get back to what you need to be at, so it's important to it's it's you're also going to teach the person how to do strengthening that's where the trainers scan. They can kind of fill in a lot of the gaps out. A lot of people don't know. Know what to do in between how many you know! Athletes are people really get access to a physical physical therapist or to medical or something like that always told massage therapist personal trainers can kind of fill. The gap set traditional medicine really doesn't get, too. Because you know in medical is. It's a tough business and it's you know if you don't have the money to go to doctors, therapists something like that. But. It's your more accessible to a massage, therapist or personal trainer, so you know I try to educate the personal trainers and people like that so they. Kind of fill in the gaps where people really can't get access to ups. And I do agree with you, but right now, and then as like you just said before that a lot of trains getting a bad rap. Because you can pay, you can pay A. Good portraying certification and so i. do believe that you need to be a student of your craff especially when you are when people are counting on you coming to you for your heal- your expertise and you need to least take a look at all the options to be able to. Take your clients, or they're not your clients or even know. Somebody needs some help. You can help out the kind of keep the party going. Well you look at it. Let's say a person comes in for surgery, and they have a total knee and everything in their Medicare patient. They have a total of about thirty days. If that much of physical therapy, what happens when they leave their, they go back to the Jim, and that's why I was I I enjoy the I've got a couple of trainers at the gyms that I watched to see what they're doing. In a couple of my clients who go to them for training and things like that for personal training knows interesting. When they saw the difference. You know limitations ahead or problems from Clo- hips and they knew what to do to kind of modify. And one gentleman he was you know. He spent twenty years as a navy seal and watch how he trained as athletes and look as you don't really know what to do. With all age groups from the young into the old the president and he says well when I get out when I got out of the military, said I became a student of my crafts, and he said I learned as much as I could. And you know it was. It was interesting for me to see someone who really took such an interest like that and. Because you could see a lot of the different techniques. He wasn't just doing one type thing he was crossing. Many many different things are really, and that's rare. Because I I have seen it in my lifetime, and around for a long time. It Arcs me really bad. I'm like you gotta be kidding me. Personal Trainers Kinda Hamstrung by you know. The sad thing is a lot of the personal trainers nowadays have to be sales people, so they are spending more time trying to sell memberships and things like that than actually getting to go out. Always say I wish they had these big. Jim's just had sales people that did their job. They did sales. Let the personal trainers concentrate on the human beings. Let them not have to sit there and keep pushing. What do you know, just let them go out there and help people and you know they're the ones in the front lines that are really changing lives for people and I. Do agree with the I. Call them the unofficial doctors of fitness. Okay so question so let's move on. So what is a s of you? Emphasize on this not so nice touch base. What's what's is? What is it all about? What does it mean? Seen on this. Yup active isolated stretching This active isolate stretches coming up on fifty years old now. My father like said began He created active isolated stretching it. was you know it's come up with a different name? Years ago? where he just he didn't really have a real name for his just known as the two second stretching and people would only say well. I really know the name of it, but I used to see people all the time on the sides of professional events, and you know sides the Olympic track and stuff and they're all were stretching with routes. That's. Short in holding it for two seconds while that was you know basically, we didn't have a fancy name for back then in. Eventually got to the name of you know finally got to the point of naming it what he did, and that's why I never bothered trademarking because. It was just a work in progress. Get you know putting it out there and is about getting people right? So with active isolated stretching like I said we only hold the stretch for two seconds. And using the agonists antagonists stretch reflex, so you're using one side of the muscle groups to stretch the other side. With each you know each stretch it has to be an active movements and a lot of people say well. How do you do this for yourself? You Know Act. You know it's great. You can go to a trainer. You can have a massage therapist. Students everything every moment we do. You're able to do for yourself as well and that's where people would see where you know. They're using a rope on the side in always saying well, the rope is a assistant to you. It's not the main mover, so you don't use the rope as the prime mover non your right. Now so the must student movement one side is still lifting the other side's the relaxing, and then let's say I'm stretching your hamstrings. You grow in muscle or something like that. You know to go through the whole body into stretch, and it's funny because I've got I've got it all down in an order where it takes three hours and twenty four minutes to stretch every muscle in the human body, and I do agree with you because I've done a session like. Like that for to cover everything, it is quite a bit in a lot of you know like I. said you have to know anatomy in know what what ankles what works with what movement and also to sometimes you get stuck like this doesn't work, so you got to go back and what did that? What steps did I miss I need to go back to go back and do this so I got to open up the cavs to do the hamstring. It's a process. You can't just jump into it during this stretch I'm. You cover your basis, i! If you'RE GONNA Foundation, I to jump to that. Everything it opens. Active isolate we've got it all set up a systematic way of where you can systematically stretched the entire body. It's like if I'm at work with a client by normal routine, they come in most of my clients. I only have an hour to work with them to truly stretch the whole body properly. It takes me about two hours. If I'm going head to toe, so a say you came in to work with me. We would start with your shoulders, and which out the toll shoulder. Let's say let's just go that aspect. You have a lower back. Problem errands like okay got a lower back problem. We're going to stretch the back. Well the spine is you know the back involves the spine. It has attachments common attachments from the shoulders to lower body, and the lower body up toward the shoulders, so we always start with the shoulders. We're going to open up the total body and spine area. Get the shoulders movement correctly, because a lot of people know back. They're also going to have like a foces. Rounding the shoulders certain leaning forward most those people at their shoulders leading leaning forward than they say well, you do have some breathing problems. Well, it's because your shoulders are coming forward compressing the diaphragm with ribs and everything, so we start with the shoulders. Open up the solar in everything. Movement is roughly about. I think there's thirty three to thirty six muscles in the shoulder, so it takes a good half hour to really open up the shoulders by themselves. Then, we move onto the neck so the neck a lot of times, if people back crumbs. They start to get that Turkey night where they get a flattening. They don't have occurred in their neck anymore. Yeah, leaning forward, and they start getting a little waddle in the front so I start to teach the people. Okay, now you remember you know when you're parochial school. They said shoulders back had back. You start to teach them listen. Let's get the the diaphragm the Oakland get the shoulders back which backwards in belong, because if your whole bodies leaning forward. Center grabbing moves lower down, and then it rest right out the low back. And you know. So we can get that all opened up some people you know. If I've got two hours to work with them a move from the neck. And then I moved down to the to the hands and wrists in something like that, but most of the time I have to move down to the. Open up the low back. We start with the hips. We get the all the hips open down starting with. The, so muscles the first thing we open up the statue in a low back, flips through the hips and comes down to the FEMUR. Yeah does the weakest point of The CELIS is the low back. You have a strong FEMUR and you have a forget. There's you know forty something attachments to the soloist. In a low back, so you have a lot of small attachments. Mellon. Yeah Yup. We open up the open up the so, and then we move onto the quadriceps to the grind so with each stage. You're opening up one layer of tissue to the next layer all the way through. You know eventually we get then. We eventually get to ECK yeah. We've gotten everything open so then the back can move free. Yeah, because I never worked. If somebody told me have a back problem I'm never worked on the back, I usually gentlemen start with sometime I start with the hips, neck, shoulders, and I do a lot of your hamstring and gluten work to with because most of the time if the. Firing especially if it's a lower back issue in them, and also to a look at the foot, quite a bit. 'cause depends on stabbing sitting. If you're exercising squatting in if you're running. How how's the big toe as Kirby and off the side God? Bless birth know that you're not pushing off of your heels dragging your gluts. You'd push the ball. Your flew, which caused needs to have problems in the Collagen? Four Ling So. Yup! I look at that stuff to. A lot of people when they're looking. They're like okay. We gotTA stretch. His Hamstring's tight. You know, did you stretch the gluts out I know says well. The hamstrings run under the groups yet, so if the gluts tight, it's GonNa push on the Cox Melinda a hamstring and it's not gonNa move, so you gotta open the glue to in. You know it's that's why you know teaching people and they're like. Wow, that's a lot of steps as as well as said. Our businesses were amount are. Were you know how good work do you do? If you just do so, so you're? You're going to be treated, so so if you do stellar always tell people if you're good at what you do, you're never gonNA look for business. To agree with that, and that's why my father has been a business in Sarasota over forty years, and it's funny. 'cause I'll go to the clinic at times and I'll hear him and some other old-timer cackling in there and you know I talked to my dad, I'll saying. Oh, yeah, he. Yeah, he's been coming in and coming in every once in a while for the past thirty five years. That's. Do, good work you're you know and we've never had to advertise our business because you do good work, people come to you and that's what I do with therapist around the country I've got trained all the ten thousand therapists around the world over his past. Forty plus years teaching. And I know you know if someone's needed in your area of the country and I know you're good. We? Have it even on our website where we sent people to a therapist because they've been trained, they know what to do, and then we just refer them to other people to to learn how to do it, so that's that's the importance of really learning and getting good at it. Because you have other therapists in different parts of the country that are referred to you as well, yeah. Okay, so the nicest questions, so we're GONNA move on. So what was the reason for lack of flexibility in? What we injured and all that kind of works together. Well in in. Basically worldwide today 'cause. We've pretty much become a population of very lazy people until the pandemic just started. It's amazing. You know it's amazing. How many people are stretching now? You see everybody's walking biking running. Yeah, so which is which is this? If anything comes out of this disaster, that's the only thing I've seen. That's worth it, but usually the lack of flexibility in today's Society's from the sedentary lifestyle. Everyone is sitting on their butts from the little kids playing video games for you know nine hours a day to you know. You'd look most businesses today. You're sitting at a computer, you're! You know most of my clients that I work with you know anyone over the age of eighteen are usually businessmen, and they're sitting at their chairs for how many hours a day into the night you know. In a CD position so the whole time they're seeded there so. Tight and you know they're sedentary, so they just gain weight. So, then why work to get them healthy and get them you know I can tell one of the one of the headquarters of a major business in town I work with the CEO on a weekly basis and he's had up. He had a bad back for years before I started working with them. For the first thing I said it's all right. You need to get a high low desk at your thing goes really said Yeah. You sit in for eight hours. A day ain't goes at least. As well now you're GONNA sit. Your back's going to get a little sore. You'RE GONNA. Do I showed him? A couple stretches to do as little matt that he does stretching sometimes, and and then he can stand up and in use a high dusk and a lot of the businessman. I work with I've heard them to do it not only just to get their back a little break, but also you're also engaging, and you're having to use the gluts, and you know some people. They use the little bouncy balls. They'll sit on rock and back and. And forth you know so. It's different things to kind of incorporate to get people moving again, and that's when the mates. That's one of the major things I've seen for. The lack of flexibility is just the sedentary lifestyle. Okay, okay, because now the company I work with the owner there I met him through injury that he had and I was able to come in to kind of him. Rehab Rehab Rehab yourself and get himself back to twenty eight, and he's actually progressed quite a bit and I know the company, and also to they wouldn. Added Vera deaths I mean I'm not gonNA name, but they add these desks to their employees situation I know a lot of people do not using them, and they just have them there, and and I think in my opinion. I think they're okay because. But. There's always kinks in things because I. don't agree with standing for a long period of time because it does 'cause. Some ankles good source. Yeah, yeah! That's why I always encourage them to go back and forth you get tired of standing. Go back sitting. You know things like that could break gophers short. Walk things like that. Yeah, you know, 'cause you know like you said you're one of the other lacks. The flexibility found his injury to a specific body, parts or area the body. Yeah, some of these people you know they have A. A bad back. What happens with the bad back? They don't want to move the hamstring. Start to get short. You know it's like you said once. They're hamstring. Start to get short. Then you start seeing the cavs start disappearing because they don't WANNA walk because they're sore and then you start seeing the whole, you know they start looking like a question mark where they start leaning forward. Yep, so you start getting them, you know. Start working with the areas of the body to get moving again, and but that's that's one. The major things is when there's an injury you know. People first thing they do. It Hurts I. DON'T WANNA. Do Anything when you stop doing some. The old fashioned thing you or Lusa true so when something hurts, it's like I've I've had shoulder? Injuries I've had four shoulder surgeries from playing football I didn't want to do a lot of stuff. So what its first thing I did I stopped lifting weights so instead of being a a three hundred pound football era became three hundred pounds something else. Yeah, Oh, yeah. took me it took me a long time and finally got into obstacle course racing to. Get myself into. Get my body back in shape so then I stopped looking like State Marshall. Amana got back into physical shape again. Once as good. Yeah, once you have an injury, you gotta get them back and get them moving again. So questions. So, what are your thoughts on? A lot of people say I can't. Squad can't do any leg movements. What are your thoughts on that? Especially you know I'm forty seven, and you see a lot of the guys, really big upper bodies, a little tiny lynch. You gotTA. Have you gotTa have a little bit of balance to it. You know I'm not one that likes to do a lot of leg exercises. Having shoulder surgery I can't squad anymore, but I can still do the leg extension leg curl because all so as people get older, especially men, you start developing a lot of problems with the lower lights and stuff on those that sit for a long. You know long periods of time you. There's a lot of you know. Neurological disorders and diabetes is running rampant through in our country right now, and what's the first thing they started doing? They start at the toes, removing toes, and they work their way up. So, you know if you don't work with the legs you start losing that you know the circulation. Get now and. The heart can only pump it so far. The first thing you lose sensation is in the fingers and the toes. Tell people you've got. You have to work your legs. It just A. You know if you're GONNA, work out for an hour at least spend ten minutes you know, or at least once or twice a week doing something with the legs. And a lot of people they you know it's one thing. I always tell people use the. There's two CAF machine at the gym. One is a standing up. The sit down I says well. Why do you guys do? Both while standing up, you're working. Your gas struck nameless. And when you're sitting down, you're working your soleus. Yeah, while the soleus is usually the one that's overlooked. But the finest called the the second heart. That's the major pumper of blood, the low-earth lower leg and foot so i. tell people I send you know if you got diabetes problems in circulation, problems, slot, rightous and things like that. Worked at muscle near like. Wow, I've got you know a lot of times. A good a good friend of mine. He's you know. I worked with his son quite a bit of work with his daughter. Well, he always complained. He could step on attack and he would know. It wants to work with your toes like man now my feed her as this while you got feeling does. But now we got now. We gotta work on. You know getting the rest of it healthy, but. You know that's important. You have to work the legs and you can't just concentrate on. The upper body gotta get the legs involved and a lot of people don't understand that so I'm I'm big on legs myself. Let Glanville when you get the first goal. Is your legs because like you said before you train them? You're not getting stimulation there, so you have to keep that blood circulation going so oh, yeah, yeah, so so a homeless and another Eric Yeah another area why people lose the range of motion as well as you know, you're going to get conditions that they just can't help. You have people that. That suffer from strokes for paralysis. Let's say you break an arm. You break a leg and they put in a cast. So what happens as soon as eight? You have some sort of joint mobilization or a neurological type thing. You know you're GONNA. Lose the range of motion. You'RE GONNA lose the muscle tone and stuff to the muscle. So then you have to work to gain that range of motion, so you can start building the muscle as well so it's even with the stroke patients. Well, there's no. There's nothing firing to it. You know that was. That was injured with the stroke in this type of thing. We still work to stretch those muscles out the first thing you see where the stroke after about. Six months. If. It's a serious stroke. The the hand forms Nepal and ACLU's fist and it starts just curling up toward the poorer. Always start teaching the love one and said okay now when you go home, which is an important thing. I teach people you teach you know. Get their helper involved. Teach them what to do. Because when they go, they're only gonNA. See you maybe once a week, maybe once every two weeks. Teach them what to do to work with the person as well so we'll teach the person. Okay, here's how you stretch the fingers out and next thing you know all of a sudden you know they may not have full functioning hand put their hand. It's not closed up in of all. You know in a ball all the time, so you start start working the areas that were affected due to injury, the start getting the movement going to, and then you can start working on getting the muscle muscle structure back to once you gain the range of motion. Okay, okay, so the mashes questions. So what e- else? There's so many stretches out there and I i. think we spoke about this earlier. What is the difference in the stretching of other type of stretches, now I give example I went to a business, and they stretch me and I didn't get anything from it I just got moved and I. Don't think I've I. Think I felt like I didn't get anything out of it. So and I notice from researching in people think stretches all the saying. It's not the same as more to it than that, so we have stretching we have. And, we have yoga. Could you help us understand why all these stretches well? peon F is a type of resistance stretching basically what you're gonNA say. I was going to stretch your hamstring for instance. You have to have an assistant usually to do this type of work, so if I was insisting you lift your leg up toward the sky. I would take this far as I can hold it there. So now I'm trying to stretch your hamstrings out by by lifting your leg up, so your quadriceps of never engaged whatsoever to lift your leg up now I'm to tell you all right. Use Your Hamstrings in pushed down against my hand as hard as you can. In you're going to have them do it until they get tired and then I'm going to take that lake economic force it further up so now, forcibly stretch your hamstring after I just wore the muscle up. Here now I want you to go out and run the hundred meters. Tell me how well are you gonNA do running one hundred meters? That's not good. No it's you know you're doing is metric contraction to try to wear a muscle out to do it and you know it does have places for us if you're GONNA, use it for isometric contractions and things like that, but as far as using it for some sort of stretching, if I was going to use that type of contraction, our dude out multiple intervals up and down but I. Always like active movement myself. So you know some of the stretching. Is that way then you have the ones that just completely passive. Come on my table Lay there in. Let me move you. All it sounds all good in theory, and it may feel decent if they're doing it very gently. But then you get the real gung Ho. Guy That I'm gonNA. We're GONNA. See how far this legs GonNa go, so just hold on. And next thing you know they're walking now going. I can't lift my leg. Oh what you know. Oh, well now I've got small muscle. Possibly they call micro Terry. Get Soreness. I've got inflammation starting out so now. I just got done and I feel worse than where I start. And then you have the ballistic stretching where you know you're going to walk up and you see a lot of them in. Some of the things that are great for you know they call it the dynamic stretching where they can come up and. You know they're coming up. It's very fast violent movements. You know to try to get things going. I'm in favor of if you're going to do an after. You've already prepared in stretched out properly. Then you start, because then you usenet more for fast twitch, muscle, muscle, explosion, and things like that. That's great, a lot of my tennis players and stuff they do that before they get on the tennis court and soccer players, because it's a a fast violent quick movement doing through multiple different range emotions. One is the body's prepared. That's okay, but if you're going to walk on the court do that Cole. While now you start, you know you don't know and then next thing say well I was on the court and this started have well. Did he do it when you were before? Even started the competition or did you when you're on? Yeah, that's what I tried to really teach my you know. Athletes I work with. I may only have them for a week or two at a time. I may work with them once or twice a week while they're in town. And then they're traveling the. They're on the circuit they're. They're traveling the world playing tennis and you know they may be here for one week and next week there in Brazil to you know a Canada and then back to here and. And so I teach my guys how to do the stretching themselves that way when they get on the road three able to do it and to continue on because the coaches are there to coach tennis, they're not there to you know. Coach struck them out. Yeah, I would love to have one of these tennis coaches one day. So you tell teach me how to do this, so. So when I go on the road with these kids through a month I'm stretching amount, and I'd be curious to see how much better they're. All most of these kids are already tops in the game. Be Curious to see how much better they do in a long in a stands for the life of them in the sport to cause at least them to understand their body in. In see no one. There is a problem and had a back off and do the work to get yourself back to where you yeah, it's. It's all about reading understand what's going on with your body, and if you don't understand what it's all about, you not talk to understand that as a kid or whatever you won't. You won't understand when pain is keeping around the corner injury. By their stink upon you, there's so many there's so much talent right now in the country is at basically worldwide that it does not those that are good at tennis or good in soccer. There's not much difference you from another guy. So what is the extra edge that you're? GonNa get? To the next level I, you know growing up around it. I used to run around the Nick Bollettieri Academy all the time as a child. Because my dad was working with you know I can't name a lot of names, but a lot of the ones that went on to win several Wimbledon's and things like that and one in particular. He sprained his ankle. Your name was the bad spring. Well he was able to play where he came in to trained for several weeks and he went up and one Wimbledon. Now it's not because my dad's was all of a sudden miracle worker at get him, but he was able to go play. We got an ankle sprain ready to get back on the court and we didn't have to deal with. shin-splints problems like that is if you're sitting on the sideline. What happens after a couple of weeks? Your rankings go down and all. You're not able to get a lot of these kids. They tried to get up in the top hundred world for it out because they want to get in involved in the better tournaments. If you're injured. You're not playing. You're not getting a to you, know you wanna go the French. Open, you gotta be in the top hundred. Yup He's not going. Go as a junior. If you're not on the court, they can't see you when I say that's a whether you're the weekend. Warrior or the World Class Athlete. If you're injured doing. Okay, so that's touch base on yoga now I have a lot of clients at I suggest Yoga, but a lot of them cannot do yoga. Because of the poses is difficult to get into because you don't have any functionality muscles, so let's talk about Yoga a little bit. Not Saying Yoga's being yoga the movement, which is actually incredible, but for range of motion. To increase. You have to do some groundwork before you put yourself out there to try to. I always we have a log. A Yoga Yoga instructors that come to our seminars to learn how to do the stretching, so they can teach people how to do stretching so when they get in there. They've already got the rings emotion. Some of those you know, I've tried yoga. I'm a bigger guy so very good at yoga, but you know. I look at it and go. Wow, you know it's. It's being able to said in really concentrate and hold these you know it's. It has its places when I can say they use it for strict. It's very difficult and it's. It's really good for muscle work and a lot of core work. A lot of my tennis players they they do yoga, and it's great for the core, and you know you know. Kinda securing the structure around the mid, the mid section is what I would say. But I always tell them let's let's hit the flexibility I, because then you're going to be able to get into these poses and hold these poses for. Are Holding them for several minutes. Yes and if the muscles not prepared, it's just like taking doing passive movement so I'm GonNa. You know if my hip rotator are. Flexible am I going to be able to cross my legs, you know. You know. I guess they call it crisscross, applesauce and they. And they they actually pick their feet up and set him on top their thighs, but unless she had the internal external hip rotator. Your muscles flexible your care for mess. You're not going to be able to sit in that case. Yeah, you're you'RE GONNA land up with a sore back or something like that. Or. They'll say well. What need to do is do hot yoga then so then you know in a warm the tissue up even more. Well. Let's you know Yoga's Yoga. Hot or cold? It's you know you still want to have the body prepared before you sit in this poses, and you know it's great in the long run. Just make sure you prepare your body before you start the active because I have people that say well I said how? How's this treasury? How did you ranch motion I'm doing yoga I said no, this is totally different. You cannot count on. Stretching and yoga are two different things. You're not. You're not there yet. You don't have that engagement year and have the mind body communication yet, so you have to start from a to be well. Thought Yoga was supposed to help me get acid. No, that's not true, but we're told that you know they're misinformed. You have to do still have to do. Work is a form of type of more contractual movement. Is. Similar, but it's not the same from what you're trying to know. Everything's got its place. It's like you know. It's like you tell someone to go out and you know there's a difference between training for basketball training for based all. It's you know. Everything has different training structure so. You have to prepare your body a little bit difference for no matter what you're doing what the sport is our work with? My swimmers is different than how I work with my baseball players from tennis players all have different needs, and and it's also individuals sports. So you know you're GonNa have to Kinda Taylor just like training. You're also going to have to tailor your stretching for know. breaststroker as a different type of repented and movement than backstroker from you know from doing the fly, so it's they're going to have different areas where you really have to focus on. And you know it's about helping your client and you know kind of focus what their individual needs are, and you know, listen to them. Ask them what they're looking for. And then he got a Taylor. What they need for that. Okay? Well, then that's. Pretty. Good 'cause! You know that she has she has a light on. This subject about stretching because I tell people I do like stretching line whatever man, but I like it's. It's more than what you think it is. It's it's a lot more detail detail work, and it's not just like you run into these places that are up now around town in Texas. You stressed by solve all over all over the place. A lot of them don't really work with you, they they ask you questions, but they do the work for you, and it's not I. Don't think I don't think it's productive for the client, but right now a stretch areas really knew right now, and and that's kind of buzzing right now in change. Gentleman about five years ago. Come to me, who manages a hedge on, says you know stretching Wall Street. Journal stretching big up and coming. Why don't we open? Let's be says I've got a I got a check here. Let's franchise this all over the country. A it here's the problem. I've just become nothing better businessman, I'm GONNA. Take my dad's stuff in just spread it sure I could spread it all over the world, but how can I do quality control? Make sure it's down correctly. Make sure so what I've always done is encourage the individual practitioners. You can basically I get emails. I've got a company in the UK that. I'm working with I've got custody ireland-scotland. Multiple places in the world. That you know we've talked him what to do. And when they have questions theory, they reach out and we do continue education to teach them what to do today. The over things, so we're always trying to help. And that's why we do seminars in in Sarasota Florida and have different people that have learned this work that go out and teach these things in two different places in world to educate you know educate the professionals how to work with other. Thing to work with clients, it's another thing to teach those how to properly do it for themselves, and you gotta be open. Monica I've took an errand. Class I took an errands class I took so many class I'll follow your. Hearings Class I noticed like the back of my hands, but like I said each time you come back, you learn something new. Say is like I said. This is what I do here as a brand is so my business that we offer and. I believe in the services you know there's no such thing as one one fix or just always a component of different things that go together to help the client, and it's all about making a stretch indifference on helping the next person and put them in a position. Well. I could tell you during the seminars and stuff where we teach people. We have people like yourself that have been multiple seminars. One that always sticks in my mind and people are saying well when you know at all. And we talk 'cause. It's the same a saving group of us that are usually assisting my father at this. We says well when we. Figure that out Aletsch now, I probably been doing it the longest besides my dad because I grew up watching people, you know I was changing weights in the clinic. You know when it was because the whole clinic in Sarasota originated out of her house that he turned to garage into basically a therapy center so I would come in and sent me next to. To the police I would change weights. You know. We had athlete by the name of Henry Lawrence I. Could you know it's? It's been out there publicly so I can use and I used to sit there and I'd changes weights, and he was playing for the the Oakland Raiders at the time and next him was another gentleman by the name of Tim Johnson played. For Penn state later on went on to play with the Redskins with a lot of famous people. And so I grew up around it. We kind of chuckle. We said well. We're always learning and there's. Dad will see me not doing something quite right, and he will not hesitate the correct me right on the spot and say okay, you know your foot's not turn destruction, because every one of these stretches to when you're taking the class, the dynamics of where the positioning in the angles of movement the angles of the structure of the human body. Very That's why when you come when he come to a seminar there three days law. Pupils like really takes that long to learn it as well, you said if you're gonNA, learn you know a hundred plus exercises. Both actively and passively, plus all this you know starting with the head all the way down to the toes it takes time, and then we also worked at teach you know hands on teaching them how to do it themselves, so we teach them how to structure themselves out. Teach them how to assist them, so we pair them up with other people to learn this, because once you out. Out in the world, and you know I can walk you through some things on the phone, but we really encourage people to come in and get as much learning as possible. You know especially, while Aaron still teaching at you know, he's been doing this. He's seventy eight going to be seventy eight this year. There's only so many more years. He's can be physically active to do it so. Encouraged people learn as much as no one's ever GONNA. Be. One of our one of our main people up in clearwater Florida. is named. Eric Wilson and he'll tell you said he comes anytime. He's got a class, so come down and he'll laugh he's been. He's been doing this over twenty years that they said Yep airedale still critique he says, but you know what I take it home and he works with you know. It was a welterweight champion of the world for boxing. He said, but he applies the stuff on a daily basis, so he'll come down and learn and like. You saw everyone. The more you knowledge is power, so the more you can learn a better off your art yet. The personnel okay so. We we leave for. Is Chad Tell us about the class when the Class B would. Can we go to learn information about people that are here as interested in the program? Okay yeah our next class if we can have it depending on what's going on in the world where this whole covert business will, it's supposed to be an October here in search of Florida. Re cut off the claps classes right around forty eight Boca's we teach them, and if we get much bigger than that, you really, it's hard to really focus on working with people, so it's There's three day classes there twenty four hours of learning and we encourage people to do as much time in learning as possible. At the class and to really know the techniques and We have two different classes. One of them is the basic class which teaches you how to do the basic movements. You know just regular stretching how to work with the client through the whole process. Then we have assisted class or a advanced class that teaches you how to work with different problems. Let's say you're working with someone with the total hip. WHO's had a total knee. Now there's limitations at you. Know the older hipster, not as good as the newer hip, so you know when you're bringing mid line for the body you know which which movements and how far can you go? We kind of get into that. How to kind of prevents any mishaps that might happen if you don't know how to work with different problems, and then we also go in honey work with A. Let's say someone who's had a stroke. How do you work with someone? So we go more out of the stretching into the clinical strengthening? Okay, so then. He can teach them how to work with that so. Now it's Yup and right now it's going to be where we're hoping we can have the. Have you know have the class? Knock Tober but With everything going on right now as I said, I really make any guarantees. If we're going to have a class this year because you know, I don't know with social distancing how we're going to be able to do it, so there are some other options you can do. We've got you know books on our website. Our website is www dot stretching USA dot com. And on the website we have books that take you through all how to do this work they're they're structured. That teaches you. You, know there. I think it's over a thousand photos in the book that teaches you basically how to go through it. shipping is hard to do nowadays, so we do have online videos as well so on our website. There's a section that has the online video, so you can click on there and it teaches. We have a video for doing the active stretching which is stretching yourself. We have a online video which once you purchase their thirty five dollars. Once you purchase it. It's yours. You can download it you. Can you know stream at whatever you WANNA do? But we have the active one, which is a stretch along where you'll see the model who happens to be my son who is who's the third generation? He just graduated from college this month. And is going to be come into work with the family businesses well okay, so you can stretch right along with a model from head to toe. It's is three and a half hours long, so there's all the stretching lover wanted do. And that we have an assisted video which will teach you? The basic hands on what to do to stretch someone out is very user friendly. We made it so. If if I've got delay person that wants to work with their loved one at home, we had to make it. You know comprehendible for the lay person as well as you know still structurally sound for the healthcare professional, so we had the video on that that will allow you to learn how to systematically stretch someone from head to toe as well. Okay sounds good. Okay so. I guess we come. We covered a lot of. And I think this is a lot of information. People can take in and take a look at the program. And I can vouch for the program personally because I've been through all the classes that have been through something so many hours of travel time and Of coming to class and I. I do I do approve this programs. Actually you'll learn a lot more about yourself. Your own personal flexibility and to you'll be able to help others as well so last question for we in this Where do you see onus therapy? Going from here with this pandemic or in general. That is a really. It's a really tricky thing because I have a strong feeling that at least for the next year social distancing. It's going to be a major undertaking for all of us, so it's learning how to walk your clients. It work with them. You know even if it's over. Right now zoom and things like that have been big so being able to walk your clients through things without you laying your hands on them. be is knowledge bulls. You can see you can. You can take a look at what they're doing and saying okay. Here's how we. Can do this from here and being able to incorporate different wellness in structure. That's around you. because. It's answer real easy I. It'd be real easy to be a trainer. When you're, you got take multi million dollar facility all the bells and whistles around you. It's another thing when you you know we're having to do that right now. Everyone, how do you think out of the box and say okay? What do I do at home? How do I change this client where you know? My son came from came home from college. He wants to lift weights well. Can you order a weight set online? No, there's still wait sets to be filed, so you gotta go out and figure out what to do for yourself you can. Teach them how to do your weather from channel balls to small exercises sang cardio routine so. People are GONNA have to study and learn to think out of the box because it's it's really either taken from machine to machine is say all right plant. Your Bud here and do this yet, but in go from machine to machine, and it's pretty much. Almost MONDAYINC. Type structure where now you're gonNA have to think in really look outside and say no okay now. How can I make this work? Those that figure out how to make it work, or you're GONNA. Survive this disaster, those that aren't are. You know Publix is always hiring looking for cashiers and you know. So some a lot of us are going to really have to work to to make a go at this you know with what's going on. 'cause I'm finding even with my business. It's it's very restrictive what I'm going to be able to do, and we're out of the start working with people because. You know. It's hard to tell who's safe and who isn't nowadays, so we're going to have to really be able to think outside the box to keep ourselves. Keep herself sake while helping others. Yeah, okay, okay well I. DO appreciate you being here today and sharing your knowledge and understanding of what is stretching. s what stretching general? What wise important for us as humans that we walk around and make sure how bodies act on a regular basis so. All righty, so guys, thank you. Thank you for having me. Yeah Okay thank you. Guys tune into stretch podcasts where we're making a stretching difference. We are.

Tools for Food

"Hello and welcome to the menu and monocle. Twenty four markle's hebei this week tools for food. There are many objects in your kitchen. You may use daily but do you know what their story is and how they came to exist. There was no book that looked at kitchen utensils from this perspective from a design perspective. Also ahead. we'll hear from the legendary food right to claudia. Road and whose. Latest book is about the mediterranean recipes. Thus are most meaningful to my aim. I saw the whole time. My real was to record the traditional home cooking off the regions near the sea. And of course we'll hear it. Innocence recommendation to that is all ahead on this edition of the main here on monocle. Twenty four we feature two books today and we'll hear from claudia road in a later. I we meet korean miners who was just released. Her book tools for food. The stories behind objects that influence. How and what we eat as you may will guests from the toy till the release features kitchen tools. We are more or less familiar with explaining their stories and histories. It's fascinating reading for anyone. Who has spent any time in the kitchen. Anti-us an interest in design. I'm at current. She told me more. About what i ate her about. What we have in our kitchens. I had moved into design arts Few years before. When i went to do my master's degree nine tova in two thousand thirteen and i worked as a curator with various public and private institutions and. I decided that. I wanted to go out on my own and someone i was working with. It was very clear. She had a very clear research. Focus of course as many people do line of work. And i thought what is my thing going to be. That's going to drive. My career forward is going to be my leap pad and between all of the art and design and architecture projects that i worked on something else that was constant for me was food and cooking and i realized over the past few years even more so than previously. I had started to make these really elaborate multicourse dinner parties sort of quarterly every year. And so i realized that somehow this combination of food and design could be something that i could work on and that was also really piqued by my interest in not only kitchen objects that i would find in flea markets across the world but also generally strange objects and just thinking how odd humanity is and designers and inventors who come up with these sometimes super strange objects and i wanted to know how they came about. They tell so many stories about design technology industry culture cooking. There's so much behind them. Within these one objects and there was a gap in the market of this. There was no book that looked at kitchen utensils from this perspective from a design perspective. There's a lot of collectors guides and basically not very nice books and so i realized that this was going to be my focus. You've made a very nice book. It's called tools for food and you have chosen two hundred fifty objects for this book. And i was just thinking that i couldn't even name two hundred fifty objects from any kitchen. Yes well it helps it. They come from around the world once you start getting into it. There's a lot from everywhere. But i suppose also. What's very interesting in. This book is that you have say a certain typology of object and then you go to another country and it's a little bit different and it has a different function and it's making a different food so a really simple example is a mortar and pestle which you know age in greece and rome marble and we make pesto with it and all this sort of thing in africa and some south american countries they can be made of wood and for more processing grains and then you go to japan and korea and they make rice cakes multi with them. So just that one thing. There's all these different ones. That may completely different foods. Grind them in a different way. Also mexico the mauka yetay make salsas and so they have this different story behind them. How did you choose these two hundred fifty objects. Because i know that you had a long list initially almost what five hundred. Yes well i guess as sort of curator and my background of being able to carefully pick and choose things you know it was looking at what were the most visually striking ones which had the best stories. Cutting out those gadgets that were going too far down that road of being really not necessary in that crowd up your kitchen. So i did have to let go of a few ones that were super interesting but perhaps it's better this way. It had to be three hundred and four pages so here we go. You get so. Tell me about some of these stories you on them you doing research into how these items created and and what the background and history is what are some of the most fascinating examples. One that i really love is the uranium reamer which is a citrus juicer. Essentially and the juicing of citrus has a long history going back to you know when the use of citrus was discovered as helping to prevent scurvy and long ship journeys and then also eventually with the californian growers coop in the early twentieth century. There's a huge history and a lot of stories about society around citrus. Using and the uranium reamer is one of the most interesting it is a a reminder of courses per juicing centrists and it has sort of conical structure that you press the citrus on top of and so this object is made of glass and they were made in plain glass rose gloss different colors of glass especially during the depression era because at the time metal was being diverted to the war effort and so you couldn't make objects out of medal more or less so the uranium reamer us particularly uranium because it gives glass green glow so you can see this glow even in the daylight and actually even in twilight particularly but if you put it under uv light than it will glow radioactive kind of color. Basically now another part of that story is that when they first started making this. They didn't really know all this sort of radioactive things that were in this object. You're reducing your limit on. Eventually they did and the use of uranium in the glass was prohibited because actually they were using bums. They needed the uranium for the bombs. So there's another link to the war there eventually after the wars from nineteen forty seven. You could use uranium again to make this glass. But they were using the non active type anymore. And that's a super interesting. Ought not only because it looks very striking and glows in the dark but it because it has a whole history behind. It doesn't example of i've never heard of before. Do you have any other examples. Well it is interesting because there's one object features in the book which is Ten opener for opening preserved food basically and the idea of preserving food. Although we've done that in many ways over thousands and thousands of years the idea for doing that in a more sort of portable and super safe. Hermetic environment was commissioned by napoleon for someone to make a process that could allow troops to have food when they were on the fields and there was a guy called nicholas alpert who met that brief and he invented the vacuum sealed glass bottles that later became essentially ten foods and so that necessitated a whole new tool of a ten opener of which there are so many horrible versions that were invented in the nineteenth century. I don't know if you've ever picked up a really shoddy ten opener at a pound store and just been extremely frustrated by its inability to open at ten properly but you know in the nineteenth century all the food appeared and all these people were invented in these ten openers and of course they didn't work very well. Now i think you know the basic rotary one. That's all you need. It works well and doesn't need to get any more complicated than that but you also don't need them anymore because you have flip top ones. That opened without attendant printer. So that tells another story of our ingenuity in design all there are many kitchen items that have been forgotten all or are at least much less used yes i would say ones that are made from natural materials and these are some things that don't exist in terms of records are very difficult to on earth. Because say something's made of wood. It will have deteriorated. You know over thousands of years. So there's things like that we we don't have in history records but to take that on a few hundred years ago you had items. Such as sycamore dairy bowls which were made out of sycamore particularly because of their sort of antiseptic properties. And they could keep everything very clean when you were processing dairy. The milk would sit in the sycamore bowl before the cream was skimmed off the top and so on but now these types of bowls are well. Dairy production is completely different from when it was. You know sitting in sycamore bowls. But the idea of a mixing ball or any kind of bowl like that has now more or less been replaced by plastic or metal. And you don't find so many ceramic bowls or wooden bowls used for those purposes. Do you think there are many sims still waiting to be invented. Is there something. We still really neat. Well i would say that most people can do with a spoon a knife and a pot cook in. i suppose also chopping board. But there are many many gadgets in the world. And i'm not sure how many more that we need. Of course there's two hundred and fifty objects in this book. And i'm not suggesting that everyone needs two hundred fifty objects and that's actually something i struggled with because i had to acquire a lot of objects for the book to photograph and i'm a total minimalist so although people might think maybe that i'm the lady with lots of kitchen tools actually live very minimal life and there's a lot that you can do with very simple tools but you're originally from the. Us want what was going on in your kitchen when you were growing up. Because that's the stereotype that the americans have all the gadgets and particularly when i was coming up with the rules for this book because right i had to make some rules like what's in what's not how is they're only going to be two hundred and fifty objects in this book and one of the first things was no gadgets. Basically you will find a couple of gadgets in here but because there the twentieth century gadgets. They don't seem so gadget. But i remembered my mother having a tool called a grapefruit or and it's a sort of wedge shaped device that you could depress your fingers on the sort of trigger and it would extract each individual wedge of grapefruit from the grapefruit as you go round and round and round but of course you can do this with a knife and spoon. And that's fine it just clogs up your kitchen drawer. Many of these objects may also have emotional significance. Do you have some of them. I do and it sounds. Maybe a little silly but i suppose everyone has an object that someone has given them in their kitchen or that has a particular meaning. It's a bit warned that was handed down through generations. And i'll go back to my mother. Actually and one set of objects in this book are the set of measuring cups and tablespoons and teaspoons which are super simple. Their stainless steel. They're the most simple shape that they could possibly be. And that's why. I love them so much and my mother just sort of gave them to me like oh yeah of course just but for me. I was like but these are the perfect version of measuring cups. Like what if you can't find these again and you just given them to me so those are really special to me and also important as an american cooking abroad because you cannot follow a cup recipe with scales and millimeters. It just doesn't work. You're set up for failure. Which i talk a little bit about in the book so for me. Those are very special objects in the book. What happened to the grapefruit the grapefruit or is probably still going strong and my mom's kitchen. You have also collaborated with labor and wait. There is an exhibition running news. London us we speak. That's right and it will also be the marlins store actually. It's a sort of division between the two stories of some of the objects from the book which you can see during london design festival and really i approached labor and wait to work with them. Because there's a lot of objects in this book which are sort of design icons icons that are lasting designs. That will still be here for many years to come. I mean the wrecks peeler for instance or various other design classics. So i approach lebron weight because they also have the sort of ethos of promoting this long lasting design and he also you know of course sell these designing icons there are overlaps in this book of objects they sell. But that wasn't really the reason it was more. The lesson design thing so you'll be able to see a mixture of objects from the book and they're objects for the exhibition corey minor. Their and her new book is called tools for food. The stories behind objects that influence. How and what we eat. You are with monica twenty four. Let's nixed continue with this week's food and drink. headlines here is more patron. All's thanks marcus. I this week. We begin in new york where grand prospect hole. One of the city's finest victorian style banco holes is one step closer to being torn down built in french renaissance style in one thousand nine. Oh two in brooklyn's park slope neighborhood. The whole has been a vital part of the community over the years and listed on the national register of historic places. Sadly emotion to make it a designated. Lamma failed this week. Meaning demolition could be imminent next. We had to france. Following huge disruptions to the french harvest and the last eighteen months emmanuel macron has revealed a six hundred million euro insurance scheme to try and reduce the impact on the country's food and drink produces last spring's extreme frost ravaged the country's crops and industries such as fruit and wine particularly impacted with only thirty percent of the country's farmers insured. It is hoped that the bill may help to protect them from such heavy financial losses in the future to amsterdam next with this week. The global best chef awards revealed that list of the top one hundred chefs around the world. Twenty nine countries were represented. In the selection with spanish. Chef w munoz of madrid's three michelin star diver. Exo in first place swedish chef beyond franson. The opponents fronton was in second place with fellow spaniard. Adonis lewis three of interior restaurant in third place. Finally many of us are used to astronomically high prices for avocado bagels. However a new record has surely been set this week in berlin with one rendition costing two point nine five million dollars before you get to outrage. Though it's worth mentioning the dishes made entirely out of gold rather than being edible. It's actually a piece showing the city's art week and is designed to take stop at the instagram avocado toast phenomenon. That's over this week back to you. Markus thanks page. You are listening to the menu on twenty four. Claudia roden news. One of the most legendary food writer so far retirement. Her career spans over half a century born and brought up in cairo roden later moved to paris and then to the uk and she has been credited with making middle eastern and mediterranean food. Better known internationally now at the age of eighty five. She's back with her latest book. Mad ease includes one hundred twenty recipes that are relatively simple to repair and to have a special meaning to claudia as she explained to me. When i spoke to her earlier for many decades i had been my road and my fascination my way of life was to record the cuisines of at the middle east and north africa and then the whole mediterranean and i think it was about thirty five years ago my children had left home and i had decided yes i would leave as well on the same day as they did and i did gradually go round from one country to the other every so often coming back and writing it up and my eighty my salt the whole time. My real was to record the traditional home cooking of the regions near the sea. And yes i continued until i was eighty writing and and traveling and when i got to eighty i thought i'm getting weaker and i can't do that. I'm still traveling. I go to festivals and conferences and visit people and so on but so we. I research was to go by myself. Always avant you not knowing where. I'm going to be but it was something i could do. And i just felt what gives me most gracia in life at ag. That's what i want to do. I want to be happy. And so i decided to have because i wanted to gone cooking and i wanted to have friends around because i lived the known and my family and so i decided to have dissonance and into dennis do should be a challenge for me to keep going in a serious way and the challenge was to find dishes that gave us the most pleasure that people would say. Wow that yes felt. I wanted to please all the time. I want to people to say. Well i wanted to surprise them but so yes. These are the recipes that got into book but that went on for five years. And i didn't really want to publish. I just wanted to doing this. Because i felt a publishing will tell me. Give me a book in six months or maximum one year usually six months and so i just went on until i didn't know by the way what to call the book because it was what i cooked home now which is different from what i cook the ads ago. And my agent lizzy kramer who is also. My friend suddenly said now. Let me do a synopsis. Give me an introduction because really. you've got too much that yes. I had hundreds and hundreds of recipes that had collected. I gave them to her and she sent them to punish all wanted it and she had an auction and i chose either read because of the way they did books and the way the also they already had who i not and who are friends and yes they said that was actually on the march of the the pandemic so just the soon as the endemic started. I was told. Can you give it to us by the end of september. And so and then they said no. We can't have c- hundred recipes hundred and twenty. So how did you decide what to leave out there. And what to include susta of all. I have a big family of children and six grandchildren and the grandchildren are all. Do not go up to thirty two. They're in their twenty s and there's one of thirteen but all the others cook and all of them. My children and grandchildren had to be at home. They couldn't cook. They couldn't go to work and yes they couldn't study is they were at oxford and cambridge. They studied from her even the medical student at the time. She was in sharing a house with friends and other students in oxford but they couldn't go out to eat and so everybody went into cooking the cook before then they did it with passion and they cooked and i sent them cold instructions of to be very very strict ingesting recipes because although had cooked amend re-cook them i was that really even one tablespoon of sugar too much is too much and also if it's not cooked enough or cook too much ten minutes will burn it and i was worried and so to be really retested and i gave the vase instructions about when to put it in the upper to note. Every single thing they do is they. Add some liquid which it in the notes as well anyway. I said recipes to them but also lots of relatives and friends offered to own many people. Even my neighbors offered to test. But i felt. I had to trust people and i had for instance. One of my super tests was married to relatives who is a heart specialist in both france and she says that she couldn't she's known everywhere by all the family as a fantastic cook she cooked and she kept asking me for moore recipe's mall reis irvy's she would know exactly what she stopped. I told them to say exactly if they thought the recipe would be better. I could trust them to do this to zayat. and yes she She would say dogs. Dockery dove is my content and younger than me a lot younger than me and have hundreds of cousins by the way all over the world now but also. I had a friend at yale. Because i had spent a semester at yale as honor as a A sorta visiting fellow and she would. I told you could tell me if you think that could be something improvement with something and she would reply. Yes i tested it with my friends down status. We were doing it. Virtually talk computers day. Wet cooking cooking with made us and eating separately and she said the neighbor said. Why don't you throw some sesame seeds and some pomegranate seeds on and i said I think you will followers of the automata angi. So you got a lot of feedback from these people unto. I guess i can see that in the recipes in this book you mentioned ortolan yoga claudia. I'm wondering you. You have released so many cookbooks over the decades. I'm wondering how do you see your impact today when you look at. What chefs cooking in their kitchens. I must say. I gradually so when people started doing. For instance mediterranean became fashionable befall middle eastern and chefs would invite me to go and eat that and tell me what they were doing and i was amazed. Chef would want recipe from in cook. Who actually researched cooking an at the time were no restaurants doing the really good local cuisines good restaurants or grand russian. We're doing french cuisine in every country in the mediterranean and you get the real regional foods in people's homes but yes i gradually realized also marks and spencer They were giving my recipes to that produces and saint make fellow cigars make stuff vine leaves make homeless. I was gradually but i. But it's a knee. Ridi when i think it was your malta langi. Who started doing mid least and his take on or his interpretation which is really a middle eastern nouvelle cuisine and we gradually noticed it. It was my grandson. Who says are actually is food pro entrepreneur up. He does tide slowly. His name is is kitchen and he went and he came back and he said claudia. What they make is what you cook at home. It was unbelievable to him because we were doing yes. It was my parents even doing and he couldn't believe it at a restaurant was doing it. And i soon did contact your tom to do an event with be which was a charity events and he would do some cooking and i would Or he would do the catering with salmiya. Mimi and i would discuss the menu of my did go to the restaurant and i was really taken by them and they said well. It is Inspiration and i felt it was for me. The most the greatest on that i could hear was that day told me that they were inspired by my books and i felt well apart from giving which was my intention than passing on what people do the tradition as they really are exactly to see what people do with them and chefs in restaurant was also for me as hugely important thing. Gloria road there and her new book met is out now. And that's all for this edition of the men who remember that. We are back with a new episode again on friday at twenty hundred london.

Mat Tinkler: Child Protection & Covid-19

"The good problem. Formerly Newman's do-gooder is podcast series unpacking sticky art, doing put Yulia Me Leigh, Matthews getting curious about the ethics of doing good the dangers of doing good, and how do better at doing good. I've been working doing good sector for the last fifteen years. In that time I set up an NGO in Cambodia on a whole bunch of awards, burnt-out had two children learned a lot of lessons set up a consulting company car founded the rethink orphanages network traveled the world, written a book and spoken to audiences globally. You can find me at www dot. Leigh Matthews Dot Com. Today's episode is all about the impact of covid nineteen on the most vulnerable members of our society children. have been doing a lot of thinking over the past few weeks of this crisis specifically about how this will affect children globally. Children are almost vulnerable members of society in regular times, and we noy the in a crisis. They become even more so. My work in international child protection means the I've traveled to many places where children's lives are risk every single day whether that be from abuse exploitation violence off from things like malnutrition, all preventable diseases in light, twenty eighteen, I traveled to Cox's Bazar refugee camp, the largest refugee camp in the world with around one million Rehana who fled from neighboring Myanma. At never seen anything like it. Living Conditions was shocking and stories. We heard from the children. We will doing research with breaking. Thinking about Covid, nineteen, reaching Cox's Bazar and other places like it is truly a terrifying thought, it will be unstoppable, have also been thinking a lot about all the programs globally the aim to improve protection for vulnerable children, and how with restrictions on movement work an access monitoring, these children cannot take place this pandemic, who not only disproportionately affect the march vulnerable, but the impact of on children's wellbeing and development will be felt for years to come. To unpack this further. My guest today is matching CLA director of policy, public affairs and international programs that Save the Children Australia I've known Matt for a few years now through my work with Save the children on the rethink. Orphanages Campaign Matt Holds Jill responsibility for delivering international programs across the Asia Pacific region, and ensuring that save. The children is a strong voice for vulnerable children with government policymakers in the in the media. Prior to his role at Save, the children mass worked as a chief of staff to a senior cabinet minister in the Australian Federal Government, overseeing a diverse range of portfolios. Matt was also Acting Executive Director of the public low clearinghouse, an organization that focuses on providing legal services to the most disadvantaged Australians and began his career as a corporate lawyer into Allison. Welcome to the good problem podcast Matt. Thanks to have me festival. I want ask you a question. I asked all my guests. What does the idea of doing good main to you personally? For me, doing good is trying to make the world a slightly better place than if you want better and that's been. Has Really runs through most of my professional career hits from. Governmental, policy or delivery By particularly working for those less fortunate, the new you can try improved things for them and make a bit of a difference in the world and I feel very lucky. That were can't save. The children feel like I. Get to make a difference every single day. Absolutely, and do you think that threat of doing good runs your whole life in how you express that daily, or is it something that you kind of restrict to work? I think it's a bit search through family as well. probably took me a while to realize that S M and mature in some ways as a I grew up in a household with turns, both who teaches the. deb was the principal. Go and I think it took me a while to realize that was a very noble proficient with I were doing good and part of their community in a really unit respected why at my career step that as a commercial lawyer, but tended to gravitate towards things that March? Could make a difference in that I think as you become apparent of guts three kids now you become acutely aware around you on behaviors and values that you're modeling your children so. Yes doing good, becomes a bit of a Lots in many ways Joe sport absolutely. So. We're in the middle, of pandemic. And your role at Save, the children I imagined is pretty busy right now. How is safe? The children responding to Covid nineteen, and and what's happening for you guys internally? It's been really busy. An interesting Thanh this probably two main components to this one is operationally. What does it mean to me as an executive in lodge? Charity when a fundraising has been significantly hit by the economic impacts of Covid, so retail stores shops closing down public sun rising, really contracting people elicit ECONOMIC UNCERTAINTY And of course, operational impacts of a large workforce, making sure that stop to sit up to work from home that we have business continuity planning that we have will arrive in cloud facilities. Francenet was on a thing so. One is being executive leadership tinging organizational impacts. Is really trying to leave out programming response to covered and probably two subsets of that as well what is? Holy existing programs. We do impacted in some. Why about work is in education and school, so shut down. Many countries around the world, so does program septa causal. This. Crisis a humanitarian crisis, really in the same way as we respond to cross INS around the world for the last hundred years so. responses gearing up the organization to response is civically covered in communities around the world so. Are The emergency, health, preparedness, response or through. Education continuity own dates for protecting children child protection consents can be exacerbated in this on of cost it's. So dealing with that on top of the normal day-to-day I, guess makes it. Really challenging busy period, but have been really proud to the in an organization excited children at this Thomas well. One of those threads WANNA pick up on maw around what it means for child protection, and how the risks have increased for children three this time. It's a massive thing for child protection. In the way we talk about it is in the Metro cutting is on the child and. That means the normally when a child particularly vulnerable child is in a routine in the normal daily lives I have particularly factors that support that wellbeing so going to school in teaches in other careless of owning them. Money to spending youth clubs spending time outside the family hard. We know that a lot of violence happens to children in the home and then. If I spend more time in harmed that tangible bonds can increase, so it's really important time for us to maintain. That is on the child. Make sure that. there's ways we can communicate protecting engage with children and listen to them. As the lives change like all that Lonzo trench to them. And what does that mean in practice that? How do we keep is on the Child? When the child is in the harmon restrictions on movement, a little bit stuff, a hero basijis are adopting normal programming to try and support children other monthly. Minimum, amount of size context necessarily for example we run. A single alone, which is another child education program where children engage with appearance, employer-based London, and we have supporting stops wrapped around that to engage children and provide additional support. It's negative. In some remote communities example trying to her number of our indigenous workforce in those communities to work with parents on how to engage Alon with apply to learn multiple and those support workers checking in on families. If we die every way, cool, hell, often weekend actual de. been. It's not easy though it's hard. I know many schools now adopting to. Align. Chickens with teaches classes every day every week and part of that looking at mind, kids practices. This week is kids reporting to teaches habit feeling about learning from harm. That feeling happy said angry confused. What's going on to them? So size kind of things where you maintain those normal chickens, the teachers will do and of course, but now they're doing it remotely via. And, that definitely works I guess here in Australia. A your family for mine, the certainly families in Australia that don't have that access, but what about these kids, overseas as where we're already struggling to get them into school in the first place already you know pretty serious. Child protection concerns in some of those families. How do we look at keeping is on the Child? I've been thinking about this myself and I'm kind of struggling to come to an answer as well. It's hard to come to an answer because it's really complicated problem and we operate in crises all around the world, and we always ask children what today missile nate most when a across the situation. And almost always one of the tug responses I'll want to go back to school. It just shows that kids value in education and they want to learn. They won't be rumbled. Friends and we also know that when we miss out. If kids miss out on school for stunned period, we might lose them from the school system forever and now engage in in work or more vulnerable to exploitation and abuse. Those things, so it's really hard. There are ways to my time. Kids engagement in school in this kind of commentary things. Ryedale instruction extending scope next to families and working with parents to actual vacant on school kids. Running and you can have offline running rods online learning. Things those sort of things that we're trying to maintain engage in money. Kids around the world have of saving thinking about places like Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh Shaw Alcohol Hall in Syria these places, a unimaginable, we have huge numbers of traumatized undernourished marginalized people that have been through united situations that are increasingly difficult for them to manage. That crammed into flimsy shelters. Ryan on already insufficient public sanitation facilities. In many people don't have enough water to drink in normal at normal times, let alone having soap and water to wash their hands regularly have been to Cox's Bazar and the thought of Covid nineteen taking hold. There is actually quite terrifying to imagine. What does this mean for places like that? I think all of us in the humanitarian world are watching. Nervously for what at the moment is a trickle of cases where sending some developing countries, but that really could become Saddam your cases though quickly and. Said like Cox's. Bazar is one of the most vulnerable on us. It's already one of the hottest by since to bid, child. New Senate people living. Cheek by jowl in in bamboo on and black plastic tents, bicycling, awesome six idol, ten people to ruin with debt for him and running water on those kind of things, so the risk of infection, spreading and technology unabomber his significant. Agencies like I said. The children are trying to belies instead of ICU facilities effectively those kind of things in a sitting lock zone, but it's not just a few J. Camp. If you take some pumping Guinea, which is emily welcome, but as a life strategies must know them. Points in most families still live in a village setting in. and must of the infrastructure is pretty bicycle, and it's a very communal style of living where people were to give aid together pride together and live in close proximity. So you know some of these villages might be isolated enough that. That something like turn Ivar smut nauseates, but if it does the risk of taking hall, it was really beginning as well. Yeah, I mean it seems that social distancing as a concept is inherently privileged. He econ social, distancing refugee, camp, or indeed a village, but. It's easy for us I think despite the hardships have with home schooling, and all that kind of thing, but it's easy for us to the UH in a housewife's boss, firms and bedrooms and Living Spices, and those kind of things not so easy when you live in a village in hot hotter tent in Richardson. I saw in the media today. An article that you actually tweeted. There have been cases in hall in Syria. That right is a case in town called commissioner, which is just north of L.. On the Turkish border so hasn't hasn't been confirmed case in the whole camp. Yes, the No testing in the camp so. Who knows I guess if there's know. Syria is one of the most fragile sittings on it's been. That will for a decade now it's a disputed territory as a little underway paper living in. Camps already in a place like whole access to medical support wins virtually non-existent. Full in other women have trip is forty seven undefined in. Z kids on the fog that can, so it's a disparate situation, and if we can't get adequate healthcare into that camp in are really. Disrespect concern for the health of as your. So a trip there and what is save advocating for with our? How with L. HO particularly for the? Women and children who've been trump to we've been. Can them to be repatriated back to try and. There's no legal practical barrier for that to occur the restrained citizens as the Australian. Residents are children under five. I haven't done anything wrong. Even though administrations have concerns about the exit owns for other taking them to a war zone or by have been affiliated with the. Ideology and that's understandable, but the kids were wise in a sense by shouldn't be punished for the. Cons of the parents and It's within the capacity of astrology to Petra them in a way, that ensures they safety, but also the secretary was trillions with appropriate. KEMPTER's measures put in close to make sure that the. and. Notifies the shine Kimmel covid has called because that of course with the ban on an sessional slots shovel, but I think the point is that had a year to repatriate them before covered hits, and there was no actions so now there have been above on the situation before say this pandemic is unprecedented in the for the first time in modern history. It's something that's indiscriminately impacting people from all walks of life in every country across the world. It's not A. A contained emergency where we usually would see one unaffected country mobilized to support the affected countries such as how we would normally respond to Saqlain Herald, which hit the Pacific last week, and we're seeing pitches coming out reports coming out of the extent of that devastation, normally in Australia, would be sending people, money and resources are, and that would have happened within days I did say that there was a military delivery of eight from Australia by the Defence Force. Is it restricted to that on? Are we assisting through save the children? For example in other ways, it's a really interesting discussion, really responding to cycle, and how infectious just before this interview was on a call with humanitarian director Ago Mall Spice on the Defense Force flash that's going into Iraq to in the next couple of days to get most supplies to attain on the ground so. Yes some supplies getting story, but it's very limited because. Spices Limited, and that makes it really hard to respond. Supplies will run out this way if we don't get more, you know even though we do a lot of dimensions through trump fiction education It's turning out, took communion Santa whose houses destroyed heads the by six water. Hygiene kits in those kind of things it's pretty difficult, but the other aspect of this is localized responses of the way of the future and humanitarianism and L. Hallway, working to shift to empower and local country, and they were forcing the government to respond and make nate that's true developed in his. Ola Bath lately and is interesting enough to cyclone Pam Struck and twenty. Those a lot of criticism over time of. Agencies rushing in and responding in an appropriate way, they didn't have a footprint, our local workforce that went coordinating with the local zest then Japan office and the gum of awhile to push back really hot and said we want to control the response to our on people, which has announced and they've done the same thing. Even though the theoretically would be ability to get humanitarian stuff. To. So sort of humanitarian corridor would calling it becoming a vanilla said we'd have Kobe chasing the country at the moments. We don't want to increase that risk. We WanNA manage this response old so bowling's help us supplies and get your national teams working on that spot. You don't need to inundate. US expatriate style, and we do have a legit break. Capable Workforce Vanuatu have been responding to. adrenaline the most disaster-prone country in the world. So this is a way of launch homeless for them responding to emergency, Beta volcano eruption on or tropical cyclones, so we need to support them rely on into deliberate. Konig made the children requiring been watching with the murder absolutely, and I think that is something that. Is If there. If you can say it, silver linings off the disaster occurring in the middle of this pandemic is that we will be seeing more localization off response through force and many of these places may not be at the place that. You know we might want them to be in terms of being able to respond at that level, but it's going to push that price s along much quicker. It absolutely is and. I mean for all of us in a full of us in must context we a big push to? Dr King, whether we like it or not and. Would Kern of ours has done is just put that on steroids for us. Mike it more quickly than we otherwise would and. That's not necessarily a bad thing. As you say, it does. Support a more localized response. We're talking to our. Country Director for diety about what his needs are, and how we can support, there is some frustration with a bit of extra person our on the ground though they ought to do more Elliott, some of the workload. is also tighten a national workforce to to get on June at job. Say I've also been thinking a lot about how in a time of crisis there tends to be a natural shift towards a more localized response in terms of giving you mentioned. They said this. Dont you talked about how your supporter base financial response has been? Limited because you've had to close up shops and storefronts and other forms of access to money, we saw this also with the bushfires Elliott this year here in Australia, with more money donated from within Australia within a very short period of time, then has been donated to overseas humanitarian emergencies or disasters of similar magnitude I would say it's a pretty a pretty natural response to shift our focus inwards to our communities to ourselves and our families. What does it mean Ni- for countries that are reliant on eight? When though is traditional? Sources of support have been hit, so the stock market's been hit. Which means that you know the? Forms of large donations from philanthropic entities might have been affected. What are we going to see in the future around the ability to provide the same or increased level of support that will be needed? It's a really interesting question and I think you're right the there is a notion that charity starts at Hud and. Often, that is the case it starts at home from my perspective. It should end the end. Any reason other than the proximity is king, and these things is to work in into politics and I know. For Federal Politicians suspected? For example, you can go and see in your electricity pretty much. Every area of Commonwealth extended ships educational health infrastructural. The Texas what have you, but you can't go and say far night. Being spent much, you go to begin. Is Basically your nearest point. So what we've done in the past is is invested a of timing delegations to get allegations to visit programs because of that issue have approximate experience of Palestinians and made in somewhere page the difference I can make the new are more likely to Cypress. Important all supported in some way you'll molecular to support a cancer charity issue you'll friend or family member has leukemia, and you've been through that really difficult scenario, so so that's a real challenge for us in a covert environment, whether is such. Medic need in a place like is trial that till tend to look more in Woodson. Support things closer to home in that environment by the same token I think what's going to be interesting with coronavirus. Is this notion that were? Together you know those the global citizen over a kid, but tried to make this porn thinks that it doesn't matter if you're in in London new. York coal, Melbourne or or Sierra, Leone Open Your Guinea, the Kona viruses, threatening and so and. Just, maybe there is something that having this proximate experience so coronavirus here in Australia Montlake. People understand that when it does hit. A refugee camp will pay in Jay. That had disparate. It must be given Dylan conditions and lack of results, says that much us. In a more altruistic thinking and public giving. So we'll say it's too. It's too early to tell there's been some. Encouraging sponsors from a lot of the big global done so far to say. We're GONNA wipe pinups rapid funding responses to ensure continuity for education for example. But by the same token you know, the federal government's budget is in complete and utter turmoil once in a generation to them all, so we'll focus in deloitte development budget survives next year in that chronic. Who is really Hook, people value what that budget provides for a original stability security, and also the role. Bang about knives busts. I think all bets are off at this stage. Those kind of things, so it'll be really interesting to see how Lonzo. The scary thing about that is that it's not just one country where all bets are off, you know we we might see old donor. Countries seriously caught their level of aid, and that itself is is very very concerning have been thinking about what this means for. The SDG's seems an I I. Don't want to be negative about it, but it seems like meeting. Those targets is going to be that much harder now. It's really sad and now. The CEO about you on Roden name Elliott, either the stage as will become total relevance if coded. Isn't halted in developing countries and I think he's wrought. Ways an organization of worked for a hundred years around what we call outbreaks, ferns in education, health and survival. and. It's just so sad to think that all of that work, and will the gains purpose we've might could literally be walked out in a matter of months if this disease takes hold and there is an appropriate mitigations put in place that is why it's so critical that the government's continued to support globalism development. Thing is. If Kogas anywhere we're all still at risk because we're in a globalized world, all interest to make sure that it's the Protestant indicated wherever the bar strikes so. One of the things opening about before this was be starring custody to replenish the big multilateral funds like Gabby. The Vaccine Alliance. The Global Fund to fight a Thi Bay in rely on AIDS. The Jerry sort of funds that NATO support at this time they delivering so. Vital support I from support to families and children around the world, but it's that kind of punishment that might come under political pressure when the budget is in such difficult. Because what the government is today? Covered here, it makes you wonder if you know if indeed the DJ's become irrelevant as he say what replaces them, you know it's it's an entirely new landscape and something that we obviously didn't see coming or take seriously enough the threat of what it might do to. The economies of all nations, but let alone trying to meet those development targets. It's going to be reluctant. That's what people in one hope ahead I think he's. The type will say the value in strong health systems and in development where we bang on about things like healthy students drink sitting over time. That sounds really boring, and it's Table One. Understand that money's. Being an acute mate and saving a lot, and that that is critical obviously but. Health System. Strengthening is all about making sure that countries have system with resilience. Onto, the ferry kind of thing and I think we've seen in Australia. That s system is pretty well, but we've got one of the best health systems in the world with countries like the US and the UK, in spite of Italy those sophisticated health system struggled to respond. You can see what it takes to make sure that we will to cope with a a pandemic of this nature. Yeah, absolutely. I want to come back to you now. Who is or has been your greatest influence in your life around doing good I think on a on a personal level. It's probably my dead to as a city was the school principal who is also a coach of fourteen sales teams as I, go up and. It's only as I got older that are floated back on my childhood and realize how Lucky I will hoax too, but turns to a both so connected to their community in an altruistic wise, so as teaches and coaches of children, and that's really. Important Facet of which to me is a as a young person, I think professionally buses in politics, but for different both very influential inspirational stop desployed full later Democrats. And she's now Australia's Representational Committee to eliminate discrimination against women. She's just a wonderful human, being very globally minded and altruistic by nature and. Nothing is too much to ask her. She's one of those amazing people. She's ridiculously busy. Bitch funds time to send you a gift when you have a baby or You know something like that associated just agreeing them and then elected. They'll show. As he's taken stop for a number of years and. It was very different, but equally formidable is a later on I. Think the thing went from bill was. He just has this determination to get things done and this. Ability not to take no for an answer when something seems too hard and. I went to work for him when he was a junior minister for disability in he pushed idea of national disability insurance scheme before it was a really an audio before what was a policy before. Marion and he's decided the destroyed. They'll come asking to this. When they run out of good ideas and we'll. We'll have this ready for them. And he was so rushed lucky, he organized disability. Luck a union organizer. Would you've got campaign for this thing? Get the Honda Com instead of days will be powerful, said you'll your numerous, but you'll palace because you're not. You're not a behind the compensated by days and I'M GONNA. Give you this idea. If Not Hunted Eagle was phenomenal, what was one of the biggest isis in social policy reform Medicare and? I have no doubt that it was June. His approach light ships I took a lot from that and I'd take a lot from that. In the wild work, outside children particularly advocacy issues like we talked about the kids in our homeland which is pretty unpopular topic in some circles, but sort of in a belief that it's the right thing if you believe in IT A. A pursuing it then might challenge near the truly helped to shape the wild things at the moment amazing and the next one's a bit of a philosophical question. What would you think is the greatest social challenge of our time? And when I say that I mean something that future generations long pastas would look back on and wonder why, on earth we were thinking as a society. The one that. are usually go to and I think he's even more potent in this time around education access to education so. We know the moment because of covid this. Billion, kids who are out of school, not engaging remotely audio school vits, not just a trend in code, but this happens all the time usually. Judah Cross conflict. Kobe whip count, axis education, and you know we. We know that education is luck changing, and it sheds your entire existence. Your career, your level of wealth. You'll impact on the world and. I think if we don't make access continuity of education and return dictation schools out of this coveting a number one priority than we're really missing a trick, and we risk having a whole generation of young people who don't reach full potential because. They miss much school they they didn't ran jeans squirrel and that's probably what I must focused on in my work, life and Muslim pest left action. Kids staying gadgets right now in online. Yeah, I think that's the biggest challenge. We've got Saudi. Absolutely and I think you know we hear lots of things I have two kids at harm trying time school as well similar to yours and. We hear on one side Yes. They need to keep engaged. It's really important that they are doing work and still learning, and then on the other side. We have people saying night. Six months out of school is fine. They'll catch up and that might apply to some kids, but there's a hell of a lot of kids that it doesn't apply to. Even in a stray they are. Let alone go. I think that's that's right it. It might not matter if you. have. A child is already super engaged in learning. He surrounded by family who themselves benefited from education valued imports education. not, drawn to alternative wise for the children to help me family, income and needs. They're not struggling with publio was substance, abuse, domestic violence, or those kind of things, but for any child who any of those criteria may apply to the then. I think tongue white from school. We know the evidence of the World System License School. Maine's disengaged from education and they laugh will be manifestly worst if they don't rain gauge in school with it's proven and inaugural reminds to the country, so I think it's a critical nate for us. I think schools in started doing great job at the by macos, adapting teaches a working overtime to prepare lessons and online content tutorials is kind of things, but we're lucky compared to many countries. Dealing with this thing at the Margaret, so it's really important. Get around Matt. If he could tell the world something in, neither every single person would here would it be? Just want them to stand in the shoes of someone less fortunate than them for a period of time talked about the notion of proximity before. I feel lucky. That I get to travel world and gone. See some amazing, inspiring and also challenging things and. A lot of other people never get that opportunity, and therefore it's. It's understandable. APEC TV's shed for the say. And! I think if we could find a way of allowing people to stand in the shoes of less fortunate than them for just a just a moment. Mike comprehend the a lot of a Severi lucky and a lot of other people. I think that would change the way we we think about at Roden and the nature of seems like development humanitarianism, the things I was a that would be the one thing I would want to leave the day in someone else's shoes along lately and so important right now in terms of how we respond going forward is is to. I guess checkout privilege to some extent and acknowledge that you know here in Australia. In our lives, things are really hard and for a lot of the people around us. But what is it like for people who live this every day? Absolutely so tell me about someone you think is doing a lot of the world right now and why? Think. It doing goods at a community level. Every day, which is just inspiring to me, know I loved on this morning. I got an email from that same company done. Radio Gold cussed in around current. in washing hands and. And you know it's been broadcast out to children in remote villages around the country, and you know the local stuff that together die doing amazing. What the changing lawn so? I get a lot of inspiration from that and I think this of time. You also took political ladies. Not with politics, some of a political tragic, but I think is buying done pretty good job here in Australia the federal government states and territories of working collaboratively in well together link Daniel. Andrews has been probably a standout I think he's been really clear and decisive and connection and is is getting respect to the community for that, so yeah, that's just a couple of sort of top level and also community level. Champions let's say and what about on the global stage intensive politics, what what are you thinking in terms of political ladyship, there can be demoralizing kind of at the moment when you look to some context like the US and elsewhere, and you know things like challenging the funding for the W.. O. Really Difficult. You know as ever ton toward An organization lacked the WHO, even if it's not, it's, it's now so. I think I get more or less when a look at the global level. Yeah I think he industry region with done reasonably well, and we should just be proud that we've got. system of government, a society that is you know not too arrogant or resistant to change that we can adapt why. To this Kinda crosses whoever the political latest might be whatever patio or in A. Religious. Time, like is, it doesn't really matter you. Respect rollins government, yes. Because we need governments in across this house has been pretty good. Play, so matt a couple of last questions. When's your favorite place on earth? AM We're talking about this in my house. The other day we lit a fire in backyards for the weekend camping detained. At. It might be think about camping in my mom. Heavy places by the river saw going up to the Murray River camping on the kind of place. We have this debate about votes, river or say differently. A river person is just something on quest. Coming about being in the Bush and against a flowing water fishing line. By the log in the Murray, that's probably my happy place Nice Nice. And what books you're eating right now. At the moment I'm reading duck by ESCO it's a fascinating book. Really about challenging the conventional wisdom I guess that indigenous Australians would not medic nature and. In, Guyq told listed evidence in history around the Hans instructions, the EASIB, agricultural and cropping and producing flour, and these trips. Will they sort of things to say? Look this notion that original for? At I didn't have a sophisticated on Roy. Buster Saudis just since really she kid to examine effects. It's manifestly untrue. Actually spending now is about the use of fires, a land management tool and this was already pretty. Big this year stranded so obvious that we had A. Culture that used fire to manage the land. Sixty thousand years get really nothing from the. Land Management Techniques, so it's fascinating, great and really interesting to remove myself from the daily grind about those kind of yeah. Yeah, absolutely who Matt I'm sure you are very busy. and I WANNA. Thank you for taking the time out to record this with me. Not Too.

Kidnapped baby traded for Big Macs? Man fakes his own kidnapping to get out of work.

"A man tried to trade a kidnapped the baby for fifteen big macs at mcdonalds a three month old baby has been reunited with her parents at. She was kidnapped by a man. A very large man at riverfront park in little rock arkansas. A little rock arkansas. Hey what can happen there. I don't know maybe we'd be in santa mcdonald's and have a man come up with you in that. Hey man once you give me a large crowd. Give it to babies. What do you think about that. Work on arkansas. That's how it is arkansas. Gaz trading babies for big macs. There's not many details on how the man acquired the baby. I have some details. He is a kidnapper. that's how he acquires babies. He kidnaps them he steals them. No one's gonna have a baby with this man if you saw photo of him and of course if you've got to know him no one would ever make a baby with the person that thinks that babies have the value of fifteen big macs. It's what he did with the baby after he kidnapped her. That has the community completely shocked. I don't know why you're so shocked arkansas. After all according to employees at mcdonalds a heavyset man forty four year old. Henry ostermann entered the restaurant around two thirty pm with a baby in a blanket. I will at least he had a blanket. Although i guess if you're trying to trade baby for big macs you want to wrap it up something. Pretty you want to really decorate the baby make it look like it's appealing you make it worth you know without a blanket. The baby's prior worth five big macs. But you know in a pretty blanket. Now it's fifteen big macs. This guy's planning ahead. It's called the man's seemed a bit nervous My guess is he's not nervous because he's about the trade a baby for big macs. My guess is he's just really hungry. These are hunger pains. He told the employees at mcdonalds register that he had the munchies and he ordered fifteen big macs according to the report when the cashier gave him his total. He handed over the baby to her. This can't be real. Is this story real. Hold on a second and turns out the stories completely fictitious. i should have you know. I'm in my defense. I mean the titles of stories. These days are just so unbelievable anyways like why would i not think this was true. I look at the title. A man trades a baby for big macs. I look at the state arkansas. I'm like yeah that sounds all right. My first guess was florida. of course. we're kind of having some fun with this right. I mean what's more important on weird af news this would be a debate is entertainment or is it faxes considering. I'm not that intelligent. We can all you know. You're not going to guaranteed to get the most straightforward facts anyways on where they have no. Let's just roll with the story because it's it's hilarious. There's a quote here the head cashier at the little rock. Mcdonald's that doesn't probably exist said a look at the man handed me the baby. And i'm thinking. Wha- what am i gonna do with this. He told me he didn't have any money. But i could take the baby. I said fool you need to back the f. up full that's when he threw the baby at me he ran behind. The cash. register grabbed all the burgers on the food warmer. I said that white man is crazy to other. Employees stepped into action and tackled. The would be hamburglar in this fictitious story. Unfortunately the size of this man was too much for the employees to take down the kidnapper. Yes in the photo this. This fictitious is jarvis. He's a real person in real life. It's a real photo of somebody who's quite large and looks like they enjoy big macs on a regular basis. It says here the the man was too big for the employees to take dowd. That's when witnesses say third employee. Todd williams. Ooh that's that's out todd. Williams did this fictitious. Mcdonald's employees who got involved in the man trying to treat a baby for big macs he clothesline. The man with the broom handle. Oh that's how you do it. That's how you take down a would-be baby trader. Got him with a broom. Handle took him down at the ground. Williams was quoted as saying that was a big dude grad. The broom a swung adam. Real real hard you know a crack that punk rock in the neck he fell. He hit his head on the floor and knocked them out. Clean my aims on fleet. These days hotel. You will save that baby now. Police searched austrians thousand nine hundred. Seventy two cargo van was parked in the mcdonald's parking lot where they discovered another infant was strapped in a car seat. Approximately six months old This what was he going to do with this one. This one he was saving for baskin robbins. He's gonna he's gonna get thirty. One flavors men trades a six month. Old four meant chip in a sugar cone and other fake news. They also recovered some firearms in this fictitious story inside is nine hundred. Seventy two cargo. Van bottles other baby related items. They also recovered several rolls of duct. Tape rope and twenty bottles of benadryl. What's he doing with all that benedryl. this guy austin's all hopped up on the benny ostermann was taken into custody. Charged with kidnapping assault theft and shout endangerment. He's currently being held on some of the articles reporting it as though it's completely real which is hilarious to me. I i enjoy it though for its entertainment value. It's quite nice. Let's just let's just take a moment here to be grateful that we don't really live in a world where people think that they can trade a baby for fifteen big macs. Although maybe we do the jury is still out on that I wanna thank the individual who sent me this story. I can't remember who. It was as soon as i saw the title. That was like on it. I'm going to open this one. Yeah yeah yeah not real canadians reporting hard butter and they're baffled by the hard butter. I believe this story is actually real. It's out of canada. One of my favorite places a lot of fans and candidate big shout out to my canadians. There's something off about the butter in canada. That's left many people flustered. they're looking for answers up in canada. What's going on with the hard butter guys for weeks. Canadians have increasingly. Churned up debate on social media with anecdotes about the hard butter that fails to spread as easily as it once did. Oh the butters not spreading is easily. Well maybe you keep it in the fridge too long. Maybe canada as candidate is just too cold. Candidate is a cold place guys. you know. Sometimes you just got to throw in the towel. Some things just aren't going to operate properly in canada. It's just cold. Your butter might be hard all the time. Your nipples might be hard all the time. This is just the user. The the is the fallout of living in a cold place in a northerly hemisphere. What can you do. I don't know maybe the butter up there is usually easily spread. Let's find out some more information about this mysterious the butter so hard something up with our butter supply and i'm going to get to the bottom of it a wrote julie. Van roden tall. Have you noticed. it's no longer soft at room temperature. it's no longer rubbery and julie must know. She lives in canada. She's a cookbook. She must know lots about butter. If anybody's a authority on some canadian butter it's probably julie while some respondents blamed the cold winter temperatures for the alleged in the butter Consistency others felt their suspicions were validated some food. Experts are linking. What's called butter gate to the increased presence of a palm oil derivative conclusion. That's been dismissed by the dairy industry. Which says it is currently investigating this matter. You'll the dairy industry in canada has their hands full right now. Butter gate is the butter so hard. Just throw it in the microwave dumb asses. What's wrong with you. It's not a big deal for food. Researchers sylvain sharp sharla suspicion began last year when she noticed some differences in comparing organic stick of butter with a regular stick of butter. She tweeted is it me or is butter much harder now at room temperature A did you look at the of every canadian quote. It's not really there. i just put it in there. Okay so people were tweeting on social media about the hard butter. What about the scientists. What are they say this lady charlotte says more testing is needed need to get the scientists involved. She's dubbed this saga butter gate convinced that an increase in the use of acid a byproduct of palm oil that's commonly added to cow. Feed is the most likely culprit. Oh she thinks it's coming from the cows. Julie also pointed out. The finger pointed the finger at the palm oil as well She wrote in the media last week. That though it's perfectly legal for dairy farmers to use palm fat in livestock feed whether they should be is a contentious issue. Shallow w-was surmised that a mystery. Acid could be at work in october. Okay we're going on and on about this. How the investigation into why the butter so hard. It's funny to me well. Little research has been done on the health consequences of palm oil-based dairy. Everybody thinks it's pathetic acids. I don't know anything about comic. You guys okay with this. Does it still tastes like better than i'm okay with it whether or not the butter is healthy. We just don't know. There's a complete disconnect between animal feed practices and how these poor how these food products impact the health of consumers. Aren't there regulations on what you can give a cow know. Maybe more testing needs to be done in that area. Just be thankful canada than in your country. They're they're not just giving all the cows all the steroids in the world. Which is what's happening in the us. If you're wondering why Thirteen year old. Boys are look like they're bouncers at the club. It's because of the Hormones in our food so just be thankful you guys maybe you. Maybe you're dealing with that as well. We've got thirteen year olds. Who are two hundred pounds over here in america. Unbelievable sometimes i buy kids pants at the jones. What are you talking about. Yeah well. I'm i'm small. I'm a small gamma mature guy. Sometimes i can't find pants fit me so i just go over to the kids section. I got a twenty nine inch thirty inch. Nc what do you want me to do about it all right. I'm five foot six and a half on a good day. You the kids. Clothes i'm noticing. They're huge while the huge. What is going on. The kids are giant. Here giant kids the hormones and the food. That's my that's my contention This month dairy farmers of canada. Well if i just seamlessly go back into the story of. What i said wasn't just ridiculous. This month the dairy farmers of canada addressed the recent reports of the hard butter in a statement saying that. It's unaware of any significant harness in the dairy the dairy product. This is big. Is there nothing going on in canada. That you guys just having this roaring debate on the hardness of your butter. I wanna live up in canada. Man it's just sounds like such a fantasy land is nothing nothing to see here. Let's just find out why the butter so hard canadian food inspection agencies have regulations that stipulate that the butter products must contain at least eighty percent milk fat while adding palm oil to butter is is legal but should it be a butter gate is what the industry needs. What candidate deserves a food researcher wrote. That's right candidate doesn't preserve butter gate deserve butter. Gay candidate deserves marijuana butter. Guess probably already have that. The i want to move to canada. Where the only problem is the hard butter health care for. All you gotta deal with the hard butter. I'm okay with that. A man faked his own kidnapping because he did not want to go to work. The police say don't wanna work on a bang on the drum all day. Arizona is the place where this man faked his own kidnapping. Let's not prejudge okay. Maybe he has a terrible job. You're not all of us. Get to work at cinnabon. You know what i'm saying. An arizona man was arrested after faking his own kidnapping because he did not want to show up to his place of employment. He's nineteen years. Old brandon soules was found roughed up and helpless in a place called coolidge. It's fifty five miles from phoenix. He told the police. I was kidnapped by two masked. Men kidnapped me and it was not able to get to work. Oh help me an extra police say he did it. All himself. Brandon sues age nineteen coolidge police department official says quote brandon informed us that he at first stuff to bandanna in his mouth afterwards. He took off his own belt and he. He wrapped his hands with his own belt. He laid on the ground and he scooted out on the side of the road so somebody could see him and then he waited in his plan worked out or at least he thought it would. Police were called to the scene by a passer by that found soules laying on the ground on the side of the road back to the quote. He informed us. Study was hit in the head and stuffed in a car in front of his home and this occurred after seven o'clock in the morning but when we located surveillance video in front of his house we able to see no such incident. I love the disguise. Plan was to to just wait on the side of the road for someone to find he he. He's holding onto his belt behind his back. It's like wrapped up. It's got a bandanna in his mouth that he did not spit out. Maybe he taped it in his mouth. He could've taped with duct tape. I mean that's that's usually the kidnapping protocol you take the duct tape now sues explains the kidnapping was over a large amount of money that his father had hid somewhere around town. What you're talking about the elaborate story along with a slew of text message evidence he claimed to have. We're all made up coolish. Police department detectives brought him in on the seventeenth of february and questioned him after he admitted that he fabricated the story because he did not want to to work. That's something soon won't have to worry about anymore. Police say because he was fired from his job. Where did he work. I'm wondering it says here. He worked at the tire factory in coolidge. Well let's get. Let's get on down to the tire factory. And maybe this is a heinous place of employment. Maybe it's so we don't know we don't know the pressures that he's under. Maybe he's has one of those very overbearing bosses. You just don't wanna show up. I had one of those bosses. His name was jerry. Jerry from indiana. I'll never forget him piece of crap. I hated going to work for this guy. Maybe maybe this has got a jerry like boss of his own and he's like you know what i don't wanna go anymore but if i if i can fake my own kidnapping then maybe i can be Maybe i can collect unemployment. Can you collect unemployment. While you're you're kidnapped maybe he's thinking those things he's nineteen years old. He has no clue. He doesn't know that you can just go take this child and shove it. I wanna work no more. You know young people don't know this is his first job. I imagine unless he had a paper route of some sort in his tweens. Though that's pretty impossible. I don't even think they have paper routes anymore. Anybody working paper route anymore. Their papers and you won't get paper delivered to their door. I haven't seen such a thing in a long time. Those old ancient relics called newspapers now before exit. This particular true story i might add. I did do my research. We need to recognize what a dumb plan this is. I mean if you're gonna call out of work this is a poor excuse. There's there's many excuses you can come up with some excuses. Can't even be tested. You know you could say for instance you cracked a rib because when you crack rib right. They don't they. Don't really wrap you with anything. You don't there's no outer recognition that you've cracked a rib like if you break. Your arm is a cast. You know people can see it on. Your arm is in a sling but if you crack a rib no one can tell they just they send you away. You just wear regular clothes. You don't really you know there's no way to test it's you just say oh. It hurts when i breathe. Okay take a few days off kid. I think one of the best excuses of all to get out of work though and please give me credit for this one. Feel free to use this one. This is a great one you tell you your workplace that you got sprayed by a skunk. It's the best excuse first of all they can't prove it by the way they're not going to allow you to try to prove it because once you're sprayed by a skunk nobody wants you around your workplace isn't gonna go. Hey i don't believe you. Why don't you come in and let me sniff. You wanna sniff. You're caller they don't wanna see you like you know what don't just take today off. Take the next week and a half off because you probably stink awful nobody. Nobody enjoys the smell of skunk. And it's hard to get off your body. Everybody knows that you gotta bay than what tomato sauce by the way who invented that. That's a strange tactic to get rid of skunk smell. Hey let's just fill it with tomato sauce and jump in. I don't know who came up with that but it stuck. I mean. I don't know why you wouldn't just fill the tub with lemons and Some lavender essential oils and then bathe in that to get the skunks mellow for instance. I mean there's many other things that we could bay in. That would take away the smell at imagine but for some reason we've all agreed that tomato sauce is the best thing my point is. No one wants you around. You smell like a skunk. It's the best excuse to get out of work. Guys thank was going to say thank you. You're welcome you may thank me. A man tried to trade a baby that he kidnapped for fifteen. Big macs confused. Canadians are reporting hard butter and a man faked his own kidnapping because he didn't want to go to work.

How Oh you cool cats and kittens. No outside that bring it back, bring it back ringing. BEC. I'm Cathy and Tiffany and this is happy. Hour gets weird. We get together once a week. Have cocktails and talk about all of the Weird Interesting Shit that you love yes so welcome back this week were drinking a vanilla plum cooler. It's very good. Some might say plum good. Just plum good, just plump good. Yeah, it is delicious and refreshing. I was given some fresh plums so. I thought. Let's use them waste. Not Want not exactly so we ate some plums, i-its and plums, and then we also plays in the drink, and it's so good. It's refreshing I've never tiffany and I were talking. We've never put plums in a drink before So it was, it was A. An experiment with a surprising result, it's delicious, so the pictures for that and the recipe will be on our social media's instagram. Sometimes twitter. I'm so if you if this sounds good to you, go check out our social media. Because everything's over there. It's very good. So on next week's episode. We have a kind of a little bit of announcement and some new exciting things that are going on for us, yes. So in the meantime we want to share a little promo of one of our most favorite podcasts. Malice hosted by Ariel. It's a true crime podcast and we think you're gonNA, love it. I everyone I'm Ariel Cooksey host of malice. When violent acts occur, we tend to think the predators are monsters. Shirley. No human could do such things. But if we're honest, only humans commit malicious crime. If you're like me, you want to know why. To find out. Join me at malice wherever you listen to podcasts. So if you enjoyed that, Promo and you're a little bit curious. Go check out malice. She is available on whatever platform you get your podcast. And now. We are going to do a true crime episode. This week and we are both going to cover talk about an unsolved murder case. Yes. So would you like to go first? Yes, I will go first, okay. I love to go first. So! My sources are San Francisco CBS LOCAL DOT COM SF GATE DOT COM. And Wikipedia and I also looked on the Contra Costa Sheriff Official Page facebook. Can. I ask you a quick question now I feel like when it comes to solve cases, there are two types of people there are people that like unsolved cases and are people that don't like unsolved cases because. There's more questions than answers. So which one are you? I like unsolved. I mean I. Don't know if like the right word I think that it's important for people to. learn about. Unsolved cases because. As I say in this little right up. I did the squeaky wheel gets the grease kind of thing so? I think that it's always important to talk about them. My case doesn't have a ton of information. It's very very limited very short story chaos. Yeah, but I think the more we talk about this kind of stuff. The more likely to be solved, yeah. I mean obviously not always. We've all heard. Jon Benet Ramsey, but in most cases these cases just need need more attention. I feel like. Also I heard about this. This came to my attention because I was listening to an FM. And somebody this was their hometown. Oh. Okay, so they didn't cover it, but they talked about it and. It just because it's like a California case, I just I wanted to learn about. Yeah, okay, I I Yeah, do you like unsolved? Cases are don't like unsolved. Murder Cases these I wish they didn't happen. But as far as unsolved cases like you said I think it's important to talk about them because we know that there's a backlog of cases we know that violent crimes are happening all the time, and you know the ones that aren't solved yet are pushed further and further back just because. There's so many hours in the day and you know in an dry up and crimes are constantly happened yes But as far as the like the whodunit aspect. And why did this happen in? You know I don't I find unsolved murder cases Interesting rather than although frustrating but interesting, because just to think about. what the fuck happened. Yeah is It's like a puzzle. You know if not the most important puzzle that we could. It still has all the questions right? Yeah, anyway. Sorry to interrupt. I just had I was curious. Always interrupt me, I love it. You always have a really good point to make so it's totally worth it. Oh so nice to me I'm like so naturally. Mean that even when I'm being genuinely nice I'm like. Do I sound sorry now? Because, I honestly meant that that was that was a great question. So. The murder covering today is twenty four years old, and like we said it is still unsolved. This horrible crime took place town called Crockett. CROCK is a small town in Contra Costa County California. It's about twenty eight miles northeast of San Francisco. The population was. Three thousand ninety four. At the Twenty ten census, okay, so in the nineties. I assume it was even less than that. Yeah, it sounds like a small town jam in the east, bay it slightly bigger than the very small town that I grew up in so i. kind of understand the vibe of this town. I mean I. Think what's cool about that. Is you think Bay area the cal? You think barrier in California. You think densely populated, but there are these little gems of like small towns. Within the bay area and sounds like crooked as one of them. Yeah, I, think a lot of people have certain ideas of California is, and they'd be surprised if they left a very small area of California. So Priscilla. Lewis was twenty one years old. She was working at the only pizza place in this small town four corners pizza. She was known and liked by many from all reports that I found. On the night of September, twenty fourth nineteen, ninety-six persona went to use the bathroom. So the pizza place was part of a very small strip mall called Valona Square Mall. It consisted of only four businesses at that time, although there were some vacant storefronts in the Strip mall as well. And the bathroom the. Went to was in the basement of the Strip mall. It was isolated. But also easily accessible to anyone in the mall itself Oh. So it was like open to everybody has like a disaster waiting to happen. The building has three entrances and three stairwells, which all lead to the basement level, so the basement level is isolated. Easily accessible, and usually there's just there's nobody in there typically right unless somebody is putting something down in the basement or using this this restroom. Yeah, and it sounds like that. You didn't have to have a key card or key to get to the access. Nothing that I found, said anything about fifteen to have like a key Carter Yeah. I didn't find that anymore. fucking sketchy man, yes! I am I getting fucking on facebook posts height that just thinking of that. That's where you had to go to us on facebook post. somebody who lives in this town actually said that they remembered that bathroom and everybody knew that it was a creepy bathroom. You didn't WANNA use. Yeah, there was like a bar restaurant across the street and a lot of times. I guess locals would just use that one. Priscilla didn't return from the bathroom. The restaurant Cook went to look for her. He found her body and called nine one one at ten thirty PM. Priscilla was battered strangled. Her neck was broken, and her face was in the toilet. What the fuck man! Police interviewed dozens of people. Took evidence, but no one was ever arrested in the murder of Priscilla Lewis. In the wake of Priscilla's murderer, the town was obviously traumatized. Yeah and people came together to honor her as well as hopefully find her killer. Yeah, at the school. She graduated from Teachers Co, workers and community members planted a willow tree shortly after her murder a sixty thousand dollar reward fund was created by two local refineries as well as donations from the community in the hopes that reward would lead to the capture of Priscilla's killer. which sixty thousand dollars in the nineties in a very small town is so much money It's just a testament to how much this community really wanted to have. This case solved. And you have to think it was either a very very random vagrant, passing through this town, or Everybody's neighbor right? Those are the options, right? It's so terrifying. Come the, and this is kind of the one of the beautiful things about a small town You know it could be. A double edged sword, small town mentality you know. but one of the beautiful things about a small town is. Everyone is family you know. And this entire town felt like it was their sister, their daughter, their niece, their cousin, you know that was brutally murdered in this notoriously creepy bathroom that needed to be either shut down or locked. Yeah, or have a security guard. Just shit situation. I have a question. You probably said this and I didn't listen or didn't hear you. How long you know how long she was gone I. She wasn't gone that long. It was basically like she was on a break and didn't come back on. The Cook went to find her I think it was closing time. Okay, okay, but ten thirty so I'm assuming he was like it's closing time. What's Priscila doing? Yeah, okay, it was also the nineties, so it's not like she was. When we used to take breaks at work, and like get distracted on your phone or something. Yeah, so he was also probably immediately kind of like what the yes happening. Yeah, yeah, how traumatizing for him to find his friend Oh my God. That's so fucked up man so last year, the town of Crockett came together for a candlelight vigil to remember their friend their neighbour, and brings some much needed attention to this very cold case, the local news station went to the. The vigil, and the pain that her friends and family still to this day was palpable. people were very emotional. I can imagine one hope. Is that with advances DNA testing? Her killer might be brought to justice was their DNA. Do you know did the article say if there is DNA at the the recovered any? They didn't specifically say DNA they just said several pieces of evidence. Her friend said quote. She was a great kind person, but she was a fighter. There has to be DNA. Absolutely, no way she didn't fight for her life and this was quote from her friend Jennifer Sylvester, also it did mention it one of the articles that it she did put a struggle. Okay, so yeah, so I am hopeful that there is DNA. Some. Under. Your fingernails. Okay? Hopefully. Yeah, I mean it's an unfortunate truth that sometimes people get away with the worst types of crimes. Sometimes justice isn't served. But hopefully, if these lesser known cases keep getting talked about like what we said. If they keep getting attention eventually, hopefully this case and other cases like it will get solved. Yeah, the squeaky wheel gets the oil and I hope that in some small way our podcast helps bring attention to these lesser known cases. Yeah, yeah, sure especially in this case if Priscilla did fight her attacker, and there's been so many advances in DNA I'm really hoping that they can pull DNA from her and solve this case. Yeah I. Know. There's not a ton of information. I just really wanted to talk about it if you have any. On the murder of Priscilla Lewis, please contact the office of the sheriff. Homicide Unit at nine to five, three, one, three, two, six, three, zero will post on our social media. The Sheriff Homicide Unit. I believe it's out of Contra. Costa County still. They also have an email and they also have an anonymous. voicemail tip line that you can call so if you know something and you were afraid to say something because you don't want people to know that it was you I, understand. This is a small town and if it is somebody in their community that could be terrifying, but you could leave an anonymous tip and I guess that wraps up my case, but I really hope that. s talking about it will help bring some attention to it. Yeah, yeah, I feel like it's important to talk about cold cases. You know because as time goes by. Here there's a here's an example say you are in a relationship with somebody and they acted very sketchy on the day. They came homely they were. Acting different personality was different for a day on the day. That something like this happened and at the time. Maybe! You didn't want to say anything, 'cause you're in love with them, or you thought maybe that can be this person that person even put two and two together. Yeah, and then twenty years later. You're not with this person anymore, and you're thinking. Oh, my Gosh! That was a day, so and so came home late, and they had blood on them, or they were acting very strange, or they were acting bizarre at the Nia, the service and I didn't notice it and I just remembered like that, or maybe even if it was somebody from out of town, maybe you saw an unusual car that you never thought about. Or, even the killer themselves. Got Loose Lips ten years later, which happens all the time. shit bags talking too fucking much has solved so many crimes maybe ran into some fucked dirtbag out of our, and he said something. That made you think twice about it. Yeah, Wow, what? What a fucking scary case I'm I hope they shut that goddamn bathroom down. It's just frustrating because I feel like women, all the time are putting those positions. Vulnerable People in general are put in those positions people in general. Maybe don't even consider themselves. Vulnerable are put in positions like that something as simple as having to use. The restroom can be dangerous. It is frustrating it. It's very frustrating well. Thank you for sharing that and I hope someday Priscila gets the justice that she deserves me to. All right, so my case this week that I'm talking about is also unsolved murder and this is really close to home like. Really close to home I'm over my sources I I used a bunch of articles from the local Uber Center newspaper, the Appeal Democrat, and also used Google maps four kind of like a visual. Okay, so there's that. I'm covering the unsolved murder of Giro Llosa Gabay. Now that like I said this is close to home. This happened in my hometown. I grew up in all of ours California it's Northern California in the Uber Center area, and unfortunately this is one of those cases that leaves us with more questions than answers. So KYRA was born in not swallow called Mexico and she immigrated to the United States as a young girl with her family. They settled in Oliver's California. Loved by everybody that knew her Cairo had a kind. Inherent Joy. As a child she sang in her church choir. Charro adored her little brother and sister and she loved wearing high heels. By the time she was twenty. She had worked at express video on Oliver's avenue for three years. And gyro would bring home movies which she would regularly translate for her mother in their entirety. That is so sweet, it and I just. Did that because I think it kind of. Shows what what hind loving person that she was a little snapshot of her soul Yes. Here's the thing. I vaguely remember renting movies from xpress video. because Oliver's California is also a small town. Yeah, and Everybody went to express video. I actually. The I remember for a sleepover. Re My mom rented the entire jaws series. From XPRESS VIDEO However Cairo didn't work there when I went. We're about the same age. We are pretty much the same age She was a year or two older than me, and this is maybe like I say Middle School, so she obviously didn't work at the time, but I did talk to a really good family friend yesterday we had a conversation about China because she also went to express video. My friend Veronica. She went to express video, and she said that these her word back in the day. Express poppin. Friday night Saturday night. Everyone was in their renting movies. It was like a small town video store in the early two thousands and late nineties totally when we were young going to rent movies when your friends rover or when you're spending. The night with the free movies was like it was the bed. It was so fun, yeah! and. I just wanted to mention this because Veronica didn't really know gyro, but it was a testament to how infectious her personality was. She Veronica. Remembers wrote just from going into rent movies. She just remembers how kind and friendly and warm she was. She was just the kind of person that you gravitated towards. It sounds like it, you know. She just had a light. By the end of two thousand five, Charro was ready to spread her wings quote. She had big goals and plans. She had been accepted to Sacramento State University and was planning on starting in the spring of two thousand six. In the days leading up to her disappearance, Gyro and her family were packing for family trip to Mexico over Christmas. It would be the first time returning to Mexico City since moving to the US, they were all very excited to go especially Cairo because it would be, the first time should be meeting her biological dad. Saturday December tenth, two thousand five Cairo work that express video her normal shift, and she even brought movies home that night. The family. To go to Saint Joseph's in Marysville for an early morning mass the next day. On Sunday. They have now. I looked at Saint Joseph's website. It's it's a pretty iconic church in Marysville. It's beautiful. it's a beautiful Catholic Church I. I went on their website and ours might be a little bit different because of the pandemic, but it said they have an ATM mass and ten. AM Mass on Sundays. That's the church. That's like the highest point when you're looking. Over married. Yes, right? Yes, the Church steeple yes, stands above everything. Yes, it's it's. It's beautiful. Now, this was close to Christmas. I'm wondering if they may be had an early mass on Sunday and the only reason I mentioned the time of the mass because. Her family does leave pretty early on Sunday morning to. Maybe they're going to breakfast before. Maybe there was like a special holiday mass earlier that day. So, let's get into the details of what we do know. So on Sunday December, eleven two, thousand, five, Chiara's family leaves the house for Church around five. A M Charro stays behind to get ready and she told her family. She was planning to meet them at the mass That's the last time they see her. She never made it to church. Not Worried at first, her family assumed that she fell back asleep and just miss mess. They get back home around ten am and Cairo isn't there and also a family car is missing. But her purse, her ID and her cell phone were still in the house. At this point, her parents are starting to get a little suspicious, but there wasn't anything out of place or any sign of struggle. It was just very weird, yeah! Meanwhile around nine thirty that morning and nature photographer was walking along the bear river and came across a submerged car. This is about half a mile off of highway seventy, which runs directly parallel to I heading north and continue straight into Marysville. The photographer called highway, patrol. Highway, patrol shows up and they run the plates on the nineteen, ninety, five green Toyota Camry and find the car is registered to the Gabbay family. It's the missing car. Highway Patrol then contacts Yuba County sheriff's Department and the Sheriff's office goes to the Gary Bay household about the car in the It's emerged in the river. Yeah, and it's at that point. Her parents know something terrible has happened to Charro. Then mutely, start searching. They searched the riverbed where the car was found. They search her neighborhood and this is so wild to me. Because I am familiar with his neighborhood I had a friend who lived there dated a boy in high school that lived in this neighborhood. It backs up to my neighborhood. That I grew up in and I know now. The areas developed its more developed with housing Yeah, developments, but in two thousand five. It was mostly orchards and light gasfields. So they searched the orchards. They searched the grass fields. They even searched the feather river, which is close, but not. Super Close. At! The the search turns up nothing. The FBI got involved there was. Dozens of volunteers from the community, the multiple local police community excuse me Mo multiple local police organizations highway patrol the. Yuba County sheriff all were searching, so they searched for about ten days, and they didn't come up with anything God. In the meantime, one of the family members found a back window screen on the ground. In the back of the house, and possibly an window now I don't know if it was open or not the newspaper article. Didn't say either way. Also according to the Appeal Democrat. It was never confirmed if the window had anything to do with Shiraz disappearance. Because nobody knows. Nobody knew so they did Find. Partial print. Yeah, but it never lead. To anything, but it didn't match anybody in the House. It didn't yeah. So like I, said for ten days. Search parties. Police organizations looked for Chiro with no results. Then on January sixteenth, two, thousand and six by accident, motorists stuck in the mud notice something strange in a drainage ditch along railroad tracks are Boga. Roden Oliver I. Sadly it was the body of Charro Bay. She was wrapped in a black tarp and it appears her killer attempted to way down with large pieces of cement. Decomposition in recent rain caused her body to rise making it visible. An autopsy determined cause of death was blunt force trauma the unknown object. that was blunt force trauma to her head. Some point after this, an investigator from the Department of Justice was brought in to to assist in the investigation Shiraz murder shocked her family, the community and police alike. She did not have any enemies. She wasn't mixed up with the wrong crowd. She was just a beautiful young woman, starting her life. She was so loved in fact, her funeral was held at Saint. Joseph's the very church. Her families were members of. And over two hundred people were in attendance, many spilling out onto the sidewalk. Actually, my mom went to her funeral service. Cairo had had started working at the of the program headstart where my mom worked. She was an aide there. And They didn't know each other personally. My mom didn't know her personally, but they. You know passing in the Hallway and working in the same program. On your mom was just touched by the whole situation, it devastated the community devastated. I remember my I didn't live there at the time anymore had moved away for for a little bit I remember my mom talking about Charo while she was missing and then just being devastated that she was found murdered devastated it. You're always hoping when somebody's just missing that. That's not what's. The situation as yeah, it rocked Oliver's small town of all. It was it was. Very Sad, it is very sad. All of the communities in this area are very small they are. There are a bunch of small towns and Uber. Setters made up of a few small towns. In two thousand and six Governor Schwarzenegger or as we like to call him. The governator offered a twenty five thousand dollar reward. For the arrest and conviction of her killer, hoping that would drum up some lead swell along with billboards newspaper articles. Nothing brought any new leads. We're not that far from Sacramento so I guess he probably just saw it in the local yeah, news yeah. I thought that was pretty another reason. The governator is pretty cool yeah yeah. All right so here's some of the facts. 'cause there's not very many, so here's some of the facts that I got from the newspaper. Detectives determined that she was quote confronted. At about five twenty five am I. Don't know how they determine that how they knew that what evidence led them to believe that and I don't know what they meant by. Quote confronted. I don't know if she was confronted in her home. There is no sign. That is the point where she was met with her abductor. Yes, basically, yes, and the autopsy also determined that she was most likely killed right at the conference confrontation or soon after So. Her body was found less than a mile from her house. So there is no evidence found inside the residence. None that the police are releasing. This is just it's very strange, bizarre somebody either had to be sitting there waiting for her family to leave or she stepped outside for some thing to grab something from her car. Or what have you and then somebody saw her? Yeah, so I talked Veronica, in in a little bit at length I'm she didn't know. Row. Personally like I said, but she said you know she was just one of those people that drew others near her. You just wanted to be around her. She said just as a rental customer I remembered her. Yeah, and she said there could have been, and this is her own theory GBS not long for that. She's not a detective. I'm not either, but she said you know maybe somebody just. Grew infatuation with her. From renting movies. she ran into pretty much the whole town there. Yeah, you know yeah so. Here's some questions and some some points I I. I would love for us to discuss a little bit so her. Obviously her killer. tried to cover their tracks. Yeah I don't know why maybe I don't know if because they knew her personally. And maybe there's no sign of a struggle. Because she knew the person, the yeah, or maybe she was forced out of her house at gunpoint, or maybe she was already out of her house on her way to church. Neo getting into the car, and it was I don't know. it just. It's just seems like it would be very slim stroke of Lance. For the perpetrator to see her coming out of her house at that early, our like a it would be very gap. Like what are the odds of that of? Yeah just in those thirty seconds and five thirty in the morning. Yeah, catching her from her door to her car. Yes, it would be yeah. To increase the likelihood that the person knew her knew her, or at least knew her routine yeah. So another thing was. Why the CAR Did they come on foot. They must have yeah, so, but then I thought okay, but that's not I mean if if the theory is that somebody that knew her. Oliver's is big enough. You could walk to wherever you were getting. I. Guess You could talk, but. I was thinking about this. Okay say the person was on foot and it was a maybe. Either a crime of opportunity or somebody that premeditated that newer. The body was found. Within a mile of her house. However, the car was found probably twenty five minutes away. Where did they go after they emerged the car in the Bear River and why submerged the car maybe to destroy evidence? So I mean they. Had you know hair fingerprints? Whatever? Maybe that's why they submerge the car yet? They didn't leave any evidence in the car. And also because I know the area. The feather river is bigger, and it's closer so I'm wondering why they went to the bear. River, twenty minutes down the highway. which would also maybe they were heading? Maybe they? Maybe they weren't from here. Maybe they were heading back to wherever they came from, but once a car did they walk the bear river is out in the middle of nowhere. There is a Wachter, hitchhiked or something. Yeah, so that was a couple of questions I have is it is definitely a lead youth more questions than answers? Yeah, because it doesn't make sense, it doesn't make sense which makes it kind of now Mike, Doubling back, but now that kind of makes it does seem like it was just opportunity. Ya because it doesn't seem like there was a plan or Did they do that way. What town? What town was the car found in? It was not found in town it was it was where Plumas Lake is now okay so same jurisdiction the same jurisdiction? Yes, it was where thought. Maybe they were trying to get the car into a different. Police jurisdiction. It was almost Rio Oso almost. Now Plumas Lake is okay. It just seems like a very random place. Maybe. This was just a horrible person that just saw her alone and acted right, and then I thought okay, so they came on foot and then dumped the car i. it just doesn't seem I don't know I'm just like spitballing here. It doesn't seem plausible to dump a car on the middle of nowhere and then have no means of transportation to get back to where you came from then I thought. Was it more than one person? He Yeah I was GonNa say that, too. They might have had somebody else following them But? Why would these people attack? Why would why would more than one person attack her and that doesn't make sense. She was loved. She was just a woman living her life. She wasn't she had no. He's none whatsoever. I have listened to another unsolved case about a young girl, drunk dumped in a drainage ditch wrapped in a tarp as well, and it's very disturbing the business I guess something that people just nowhere think to do. And and the newspaper said that Cairo's body was put pretty like they were trying to hide it It was put at the very bottom of this now ditch so somebody that know the area. And also to yes, someone who knew the area, and also to new the area of the bear river because it's not. A particularly large river, so you would have to know. Where was deep enough to submerge a car and also how to get to it because you had to take a certain exit off seventy to get to this spot. And I? Don't know a popular spot I didn't. See it. I didn't drive by I. Don't know exactly I guesstimate where it was on a map based on the the directions from the newspaper where they said they found it. So, but it's not just like a large river where you could just drive a car off a bank, and it would like sink. It was like a pretty. I would say relatively narrow shallow. River from what I know of it, maybe I'm totally fucking wrong. Probably not wrong I'm just thinking this is just. It's very strange, very strange I. Just it's like y with any of this happen. That's like why the behave. Why the hiding why? The behavior was at someone she knew that's what makes me think it was someone. She knew because they were trying to buy time. Did it say anything about anything in her personal life and NO NOTHING! I could find nothing. There were thing I'm. There were things in the community that were said I'm not going to repeat them because I don't know if they're fact. I'm yeah, that's probably so there. There is like rumblings within the community of like theories. but I, did read somewhere that she did have a boyfriend at the time but he since moved away. And I think he It didn't say whether he was cleared as a suspect or not, it didn't say. I'm sorry I'm sorry to interrupt. You didn't say anything about. Any possible DNA off of her body do they think that there wasn't any because of the how she was The article did say one of the articles I read multiple sad that because it was in December and into January yeah that the tarp in combination with the cold water per served her. Body. So. There was DNA I. do believe that it was. Preserved unless it was washed away. But one of the articles said her body was well preserved, so that would be. The hope is that there's DNA? Yes, absolutely so an I didn't. There's there's literally that's all even DNA off. The tarp of part of the tarp was out of the water. Has DNA on it rain? Yes, doesn't necessarily have to be on her, so and it didn't say. WAS A TARP! A premeditated was it in her car already was found in the ditch, was it yeah where the tarp didn't say didn't say what if the if the carp came from him then even if part of it was underwater chances, are there some sort of DNA on it? Yeah, and it didn't say at the cement was in the ditch already or if the her killer brought the cement. I don't know it It's all very bizarre in Berry. Sad. It's very very sad. I you know. We did the case on the Yuba county five and so heartbreaking yet. The Sacramento Bee did in my opinion a A great two part article on that case and I'm hoping this year would be the twentieth anniversary. of her murder and I'm hoping that the local newspaper will do a piece may be. You know see if the sheriff's office will release any more information to kind of breathe new life into the case you know because we all know we all watch the same shows. We all listen to the same podcast. If you're into true crime, you know that detectives holds some information private. Yeah, so I'm thinking that they have a lot of. Information that they haven't released. So, you know. Maybe it's been twenty years maybe. They'll come a point where they can release them to the public, and it will sparks leads sparks him calls spark some interest in the case again. You know because I guarantee you. Her family and the community think about her every day. Oh, I, guarantee it, so it's it's. It was just these cases. That's why it's so important to talk about these cases, even if it's just on a little pod like ours. Yeah, just so that they don't get forgotten I agree. I agree I just wanted to end on a quote from Chiara's best friend. She gave a quote on When at one of the memorial services now they've had annual memorial services. Yuba county victim witness is in my opinion. I used to work in the school district in Yuma County. And you know you're mandated reporter, so you sometimes work with victim witness, and they are a county government agency and they. have social workers, therapists and advocates for victims and victims families of crimes. And in my opinion. I am so thankful that not only Chiara's family, but other families that have experienced traumatic. Murders in their family and traumatic violence in their family, they have victim witness to their advocates that go to the house. They talked to the family. They sit with the family. They offer counseling and PTSD services for the family they. If there is a case where the it goes to trial, they go with family members to trial. They're basically like an emotional support system for families of victims so incredible it is. Incredible, it's so incredible I know somebody personally who has had who has dealt with victim, witness and day are in valuable to this community and I just wanted to give them a shout out because they are wonderful. So I wanted to end this episode with like I said. A quote from her best friend that was taken from the at from the Appeal Democrat at a memorial service quote Chiara's smile brought smiles to others. Her laugh and Giggling drew people to her and her warm personality. Put others at. She was a beautiful person. She brought light everyone's life. She continues to brighten up like people's lives. Being around her brighten your day, she gave off a good vibe. She was always positive even when she was mad or sad. It's like so breaks my heart lake. I'm so sorry to get emotional, but it's just like. She was such a beautiful person. Really Awful, and she just like loved her family. You could tell like just from old news article. She'd just such a loving person, and it's just like so sad. So if you have any information or know someone who might have information on Cairo Gharib as murder, please contact the Yuba County Sheriff's department at five, three, zero, seven, four, nine, seven, seven, seven seven. In I'm I. Don't know if you can give an anonymous tip, but I'm sure there's an option for that. I'll post her unsolved murder. Case file on the Yuba Kenny website post that on our social media and I'll give you my email and Maybe exactly who to contact would ask for Yeah Yeah said that is the those are two unsolved murder cases pretty fuck and sad man. Way Sad yeah I mean stop killing women. Stop killing women and people to stop killing people in general. Although this this researching this was happy I was emotional for shore. Probably because I am more connected. Because I grew up in this town. I know these people you know people I know knew her, but I actually really liked doing these cases. Because like you said it's important to talk about him. It is these doing the true crime. Cases are really really hard. But in situations like this where there unsolved. I think that it's more than worth it for me to be a little bit uncomfortable and to be sad. Yeah hopefully shed some light and some attention on these cases. Yeah. I agree because I. my hope is that you know they'll all get solved. Yeah, like what if this you know we're? We're based in Yuba Sutter, so it's like what if someone from Yuba sutter happens to hear this on his like what the fuck I remember this and you know. Yeah, so I duNno rest in peace. Priscilla and Charo and. Rest in in love and I just my condolences to both families, and it is just to lose. A family member is just beyond devastating.

World builders is in train and it isn't full angst mode. I have to say so i'm riddled with. Is this right. will this work. Is this enough of a scene to make sure the point gets across the language. Good so a lot of self doubt stuff. So i'm familiar with that feeling and writing a book. But because i've written a novel before it's kind of exacerbated so in the coming weeks i will be seeking support. It's time to get an editor. So i can have a sounding board for this. I also have launched the world builders champions on facebook which is a private group that i invite you to jump on and jump in. If you like where. I'll be sharing some of the behind the scenes experiences in writing the novel inviting you to comment on things like character profiles world concepts get a preview. Some of the tax weigh in on the title which do not have at all close to maybe book cover design when we get down the track that kind of stuff so if you find it like it could be a fun opportunity to be part of building this first novel and participating in it i would love your feedback because it's really hard to create a vacuum and if you want to jump on feel free to do so the will put a link in the show notes of will builders champions or you can search for it in a facebook and apply to be leading to say you're a podcast listener which means i love already and we'll let you into the crowd and you can have surf round there all right. So that's world builders champions what else amplifiers so coming up soon in may thirteen and fourteen is our next amplifiers immersion so apple fires is my very It's my heart and soul. Basically this is my mission to help. Support big thinkers with big hearts. Make a big difference. And in the amplifiers group both in the camera chapter and the virtual chapter there are leaders. Ceos managing directors senior executives from many different sectors that come together with the aim objective of developing more influence and impact and delivering bigger and better results year after year.

It's a combination of training delivery so do content coming out each month and we take a deeper dive on the emergence as well as a community that you can participate in so that you can meet your fellow leaders. And that's often. The value of the program is the diversity of the leaders in the group that you can use as a sounding board and support. So that's you and you want to on the group go to zoe. Route dot com slash amplifiers hyphen program. Check it out and reach out. You can email me. So he dot com and have a conversation about amplifiers. If you're ready to step up and have a bigger play. Because i would love to have you there. If that's you all right what else. Lately i've been doing so many culture and strategy facilitation days either with executives and teams on their culture so a lot of the teams are trying to recalibrate get reset or come together and set a new agenda. And i loved these days so we talk about you know pitfalls of working teams. What are some common patterns and how to troubleshoot that and we developed their team's culture compass which is their culture chartered to help them work better together. So what's good about working together. And whether they want to avoid and what does success look like so doing this days. They're superfund. I've got a bunch of them coming up and i do strategy days and those are super fun to and that's where i'm working with a couple of teams where they're focusing on developing the key results that they want to deliver in their organization. How the team's results fit together. And what strategies they can do to put it all together and move forward so if you're interested in either of those pieces of work pick me pick me because i love doing it again. Just reach out zoe dot com and that would be fantastic all right well. That's all of my little updates. Oh when moore of course. We're coming up to the season finale. I'm going to do a wrap up for you to summarize some the key points and the season following is all about leading in complexity. So that's a little heads up what's coming next and without further. Ado let's get onto it and here is jordan jordan. Could bigamous sake all the way from roden. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much for having me. Well i've been looking forward to this for awhile. I love your perspective on workplaces because you are eight new professional so you're new to the professional environment after having graduated from uni and it's always fascinating to get somebody's perspective who's new on the scene and leaders really value that to get that kind of experience. So let's start way back before you arrived on in your current job et productivity. Because you're not new to work like even though you're in your early twenties work at a crazy young age. Let's start there. What's your first job. Sure out of very young age as you mentioned. I actually started working a golf course so i was the guy that everyone would hit golf balls up on the tractor while styles picking them up and i would also drive called costs So had a lot of fun do not. i think i started there when i was about twelve or thirteen. And then from there. I did some work doing some hospitality and retail for awhile. Probably two to. Three's just hang on a second. I i wanna talk about the golf thing for second so you were there. You were target practice and the guy had to pick up golf balls and everything absolutely. Did you ever get hit. Hit by golf ball. Yeah i did so the tractor itself was a little bit sketchy it had a cage around it by the cage had holes in it. So sometimes. if you're lucky the gulf would get straight into the cajun ping around and you that is. There's so many laws. I think there were broken. The having a young kid drive a golf cart and get pinged by people plugging balls at them. Aside from that cyprian front of your life and limb your life on the limb. I thank god for said expression. What did you learn about working at such a young age. I think i let the work is not necessarily just you. So when you're working in an organization and a company there are a lot of moving parts specifically for my case. There were multiple different levels. That i had to learn to negotiate from a young age and starting to understand that when you are young is an interesting one fish oil humanity. All what the role of a manager is who you got to talk about what i think. Those intricacies were the things that i had to learn from a young agent debate. Teach you those are did you just work them out. Not at all In that environment it was not structured training for this workplace operates. It was this is the workplace start. Overwriting sink or swim. Really figure it out as you go along literally but thankfully it wasn't a high pressure environment or anything like that. It was just a welcome to the workforce moment and then so there you went into hospital. Was it similar there or did people actually show you what to do similar in the sense that again. No formal training. It was run. These coffees and take the food while it's hot so i guess the only difference there was starting to learn priority management. Who you prioritize best. What does you need to prioritize how to deal with customers because they can be quickly from time to time again. It was starting to get a little bit more training. But nothing overly specific. I'm curious that so when you are serving food and coffee a critical decision for prioritizing like who's who's crank used or is that what will get cold. I or how does that work. Yeah so we had. We had some set rules of if someone had some impressing dietary requirements say. There are diabetic and they needed food. Instantly they would be prioritized. Otherwise hot food. When i fully by cold food and at the same time possible. Yeah okay. I've worked in restaurants for ten years. I never had diabetes being priority. That's amazing yeah we. We had a couple of instances where people would come to the counter and say. Hi my son's a diabetic call. I'm a diabetic. They need food as they. Can you please help us out so well. That's one way to get your food. I isn't it how to jump the queue one. Yeah awesome okay so then from pasta talapity then you went to uni or you did hospital while you're at university yes. I was out hospitality. When i was in guinea and then from hospitality i moved over to the public sector Working in federal comment. Wow and that's a credit conscious environment. What did you discover in that transition I think the biggest discovery was about hierarchies everything how to process everything protocol. Someone was responsible for something and often parts didn't move unless that person was there to be responsible for it. Wow so nobody would saab in. It's like that person or nothing. Pretty much particularly when projects had to be cleared or action. Items in project out to be initiated. It really had to go through the right channels. And so i think i was surprised by the delay that sometimes took in order to what i thought were high priority critical things but in saying that the system functioned and we managed to deliver projects. Thousand good thing okay. And then you've ended up and is the next jump into productivity where you are now. Yes i had a. I had a little stint in the private sector. Before i got pretty but yes then as a graduate i joined productivity and tells a little bit about productivity productivity is an international consulting firm. I think there are around. Eighty offices globally. And i'm based out the camera office specifically doing some business management type consulting. Okay well that's another completely different environment again in a different way of working. What have you discovered since you started in terms of your impression of work and how work works. Moving into management consultancy firm. Yeah work has been totally different. I was surprised with the emphasis that has been placed on professional development. And fair back. So i think that was the biggest change for me when entering professional services that had so many structures in place in order to make me feel support. Like i wasn't really alone. I think the best pot has been that. I've got buddies career advisors and mentors and people that i can go to to talk about stuff but also who advocate on my behalf. Sorry they can express my interests of projects. That i wanna work on your places that i want to work roles that i wanna take on and i think i wasn't really expecting that. I think i was expecting corporate world to be a little bit more doggy dog. So it's a nice surprise. Wow that's really interesting that you thought it was going to be doggy dog. Why did you think it was going to be dog. Eat dog the movies. It happens even tv shows so it's a good example over wall street. Yeah those are legal firms. And i'm married to a lawyer so it's a completely different environment again then consulting absolutely okay. Yeah go on. You're going to say something i just going to say. I think that consulting his almost a tricky one to convey. I don't think that there's a clear understanding by a lot of people when you sign up to consulting as someone who hasn't really experienced the area before answer you can kind of go in and you can ask the questions but ultimately maybe this is yeah okay go with that bias into the experience and with consulting you go into a whole bunch of different workplaces. It's not just the one office. The productivity had office in cabra even to other work places to do consulting work. What have you discovered about work and culture as you go around these different workplaces. I think it's pretty evident. That everywhere is super different in terms of that workplace culture stuff. I did a small stint at a government government department and. I remember that i think it was. It wasn't even casual friday. It was a regular tuesday and some members of one of the turned up in hawaiian shirts. Shorts and thongs flip. Flops and i was so shocked. Because i was like well. I always thought you had to wear. He popped and your your address. Attaya thankfully my company's pretty relaxed. What you what you can wear too from the office but that was definitely a a bit of a cultural. Well i guess more specifically than not even the way that teams and people operate sorry. You're what's deemed acceptable. What's not acceptable. How we go about anticipating deadlines and how he walked towards them as a team or individually. I think dot cultural stuff is different right. So i'm curious about acceptable not acceptable. So i'm always surprised by what teams think is acceptable. Did you have that experience to you. Like this team. That's acceptable I think even just how you operate in meetings so some teams that i worked in in four will start the meeting precisely on the hour and you talk about where from the gecko other teams. Who perhaps a more comfortable with one. Another we'll start when they feel like starting said it's to room. Have a shot feel confident comfortable and then get onto the more important topics. Sorry i think that's been a bit of an understanding top oil. Which do you prefer Definitely depends on the scenario. But for me i think the lada sir. Going in getting to know one another if you don't already and then jumping into what you're talking about can be really good when those personal barriers broken down a little bit. I think people are more willing to interact and and discuss important stuff. Okay that's really interesting observation. So you've worked with a number of different leaders. What have you liked. And what have you disliked in terms of working with them. I mean it's a pretty big concept leadership and in terms of things that have liked what i haven't necessarily liked so i've tried to think about a couple that i do like The first of which is a feeling of value which i think stems from your perch ability communication and listening so when i feel comfortable approaching my latest when i know that i'm being listened to her when there's open communication in that regard. I really enjoy that type of team setting another one is flexible leadership styles. So it's not that cookie cutter approach to managing teams. I think it's pretty evident in the spaces that i've worked in that a lot of different people Operate differently depending on their own personal biases. And what their interests are having later that can adopt daylight ship style to get. The most out of their team is really good thing. And then the other thing that i find has been really enjoyable. the latest who are not afraid of falling that slaves up when the going gets tough and getting down and dirty with it does work that needs to be done then not afraid to step up and lend a hand. It's not beneath them. Cool well that sounds like a wonderful description. And i love the way that you put that picture of somebody who's versatile and has a sense of camaraderie and egalitarianism. And i'm just thinking about that in the background of where you are now describing productivity is the way that they support you and mentor you and you have a buddy system and everything. Do you have aspirations to be a team leader yourself. I think i do but time. I think that. I am alita to some regard already. Maybe not specifically by title in the professional space but in terms of my other life avenues amongst friends and family. i think that ladyship doesn't necessarily correspond directly with titles but inside that i do have aspirations to have maybe at least you've thought one day okay. So there's a couple of things are poke around a little bit in this. What kind of leadership roles you taking your personal life. What type of roles do i take my life. Yeah i mean he don't necessarily have a title of you know leader of friendship group. Ask you how do you feel you demonstrate leadership in your personal world. I think specifically for all my siblings. I always try to act as somewhat of a sounding board for them. Because i've just been through a lot of the stuff that they've been entered in terms of applying for jobs a purchase union even to apply for at uni. So i feel like i act as a leader. Qara god in terms of friends. It's not that specific leadership title stuff but even even just in terms of whether we want tonight regular operating stuff. I think. I think that. I stand up as being a leader in summer. Gods that oh so. You're the guy with the ideas of what's fun stuff. We can do anaheim the guy who makes the decision. Now jackie. that's it. I don't care what you guys going here not an. I think that my friends love things tenuous sometimes sitting down and saying let's go through. This is what is to help. And i see okay. Cool love it. So what interests you in terms of getting a formal leadership raw like the title of the authorities. So what is it that you find interesting or attractive about that. I think you've used an interesting word. That when you say authority. Because as i'm starting to lead small teams now. It's the authority pot. That i think is not awkward but the part that is taking the most become accustomed to it. So can you start to delegate tasks and when you start to say you know this is something we need done to help with this. I think that part of leadership is the day that i'll have to adjust to the most but in times of what attracts me to the idea. I like the idea that i can contribute and help others grow mature as high. Hopefully half and i think a position of leadership systemically and not systemically often gives you a place to sir. Yeah that's very nice. And so what is it about like asking people to do stuff the authority peace. You find awkward. I think it's more about not necessarily coming from a position where you had to do that before. So it's almost like a change of mindset from saying y'all do whatever tasks he could be to let me prioritize the ones. I actually want to focus on and what toss can these people helped me with. I think it's just the change in mindset is tech a little bit of adjustment. Okay so it's just figuring it out and abby bit more outward focused than just personal responsibility focus for sure. Yeah absolutely okay. What's your approach like. Do you have a plan for your leadership development. Have you got a way of going about developing these skills so or not. You're hoping organically pick things up. I think it's a little bit of both. I think i'm lucky. In that miles. Ation they have some structures in place in order to help upskill and trade as you get promoted so i think there are different responsibilities at h promotion level and they try to equip and train you to deal with some of the new challenges that you'll have at level but in saying that i think learning on the job is such an important thing. Get to say ladies inaction on how they respond to scenarios and problems is where all learned the most. I feel ok cool. That's great so let's talk about gen y right so youth sit squarely in the gen y. Camp as a younger member of the generation. There's a lot of and i'd be genzer older when it comes to generation. I don't know what they could missed. They could be impressions that people have. And certainly it's been a lot made of gen y. And certainly conversations in the media about gen y feeling entitled and privileged and being babied and always needing praise. Do you think these are myths. That are true. Or are they simply miss. I'm asking a big call. You know speak on behalf of your entire generation because you know everyone. So let's maybe say these are things that are said about your generation in your experience with your peer group. How do you respond to some of those myths. I mean it's a pretty question right I think often myths don't just spun out of nowhere so some people had to a certain way in order to think that maybe people for my generation felt entitled hall that they always wanna gold staffer everything for example. I think the idea of entitlement is a pretty tricky one. I think it's quite complex. Specifically in the times of expressing interest or disinterest to work in specific areas or do certain jobs so holding. The bad jobs will have to be done by somebody right but for me personally when i'm more interested in. I'm more engaged in the work that i'm doing. I think that. I'll strive to deliver better outputs i think. A lot of that. Interest driven motivation is somewhat sub-conscious Consciously i'll always try my best to give a good effort enter the best. I can but went on more engaged and interested in the work that i'm actually doing than the drive to go above and beyond this comes from somewhere else so i think in terms of layers And what they can do in the space. I think that signposts how you can use your race horsing models so if you've got a bunch of people who ultimately become really interested in passionate about doing certain types of back and we assume that that wanna go enter the best that they can. In those areas of interest than mapping where people are interested in the types of trump's that they wanted to shoot or quote yield better outcomes for everybody the people that work the organization that you're working for sir. I get the at the end of the day that some of the patents have to be done but hopefully when your interests some people are interested in doing some jobs and some are interested in doing other. I going back to the root of the question around entitlement. it's it's a tricky one. I think that perhaps now because we are given opportunities and platforms to express interest in doing particular type of A lot of us taking the opportunity to do sir but at the same time should also be able to capitalize on that and make their resources models better as well. Okay so a little bit of what i heard was. The boring jobs are boring. You want to work on something interesting. And that's the way you'll be more enthusiastic that way. Some people may interpret that as being entitled and maybe that comes from genetics framework thing. Gotta earn your stripes. Do you have that sense that. That's an ethos in the workplaces that you've experienced that. The you gotta earn your stripes is something that is prevalent. Don't think so. Specifically a lot of the places that i've worked but in terms of perhaps where i've heard stories in the boss of others having worked that i think fish like that everyone's different rats. Some gen who'd would definitely believe in this myth if you'd like to say I'm sure that they would feel that. You have to earn your stripes always you. Respect is not necessarily given hand but in that regard. I think i've been quite lucky in that year. What i'm interested in has governed a lot of the work that i've been able to. Okay i think like the earn your stripes. Peace and getting opportunities is often linked to needing experience and fronting about some of the conversations over the years. That people had about gen y. And lawyers kind of whingeing. That gen ys come and say they automatically want to get promoted to manager and they haven't done anything yet. And i'm wondering like i always served took that with a grain of salt thing. Well the people in the younger generation have learnt a lot more quickly because of the basically because of internet and because of access to technology accelerate the rate of accumulating knowledge and know. How have you seen that. You know people come into work place and they want to get promoted pretty quickly. Is it less about in your mind. Is it less about being promoted. And more about exploring interests. I think promotion comes with responsibility sir and maybe changing expectations so i think often the the idea promotion as a new car is a good thing right like it's you get promoted. You get more money. But i think when you often when you unpack the responsibilities the expectation changes of what promotion entails. It's not as simple as that. So i think the night approaches yet. Let's get promoted as possible but at the same time Ah saying that. What i ladies at the moment says is you don't want to get promoted to a feeling of incompetence so it's good to feel supported and that you can lead inside environments but at the same time you don't want to get to some way away You feel completely out of debt and you struggle to swim at that point. Yeah we often talk about it. That people go from being an expert being promoted to manager and all of a sudden they do feel a competent because totally different set of skills to be expert in one area and then it is to manage people. And that's where a loss in the leaders follow over and that's very sensible of them to say yes we'll build on your expertise so that you can. You can ease into rather than just flailing around having a go. What's one thing that you wish older workers so anybody over twenty four which one. What's one thing that you wish. Older workers really knew and understood about younger workers. I think for me. It's that when all the same so touching on what. I was talking about previously in terms of motivation interests. I think it's important for leaders to not always put people in the same demographical buckets all young male female and and try to match interests in what would work for whole demographic like that. Obviously there instances when you have to make macro decisions but at the individual or the project level i think understanding that world different is a really good thing and it means that you can get the most out of your teams. That is sensible advice no matter what generation. I think it's really good. What's okay this is a really interesting for me. And i've become aware of these issues. Just because incarceration of for example. What are some things that older workers take for granted but are like a big issue for younger workers. Something that you just wouldn't necessarily because you've been in the workforce for twenty odd years but it's a big deal for for new workers. Yes i think the biggest one. Here's actually time your ten minutes to someone who's way more experienced or someone who's much older might seem like a time waste or sometimes spent better doing something else too busy. You take longer to explain it than to do it themselves but for me. I think something that i really value is when my latest. Give me time and obviously. That's something that conway's happen. But i believe that a lot of my learning can come from my latest and their experience and sir. I really appreciate when i'm given the time to explain. Hope listen and guide. Well i would have not have picked that. I was gonna say the cost of parking and the cost of petrol. Like you've recently moved out of home and discovering the choice and the challenges of managing your budget and household does any that relevant to you your workplace experience or not in terms of so the stuff that older workers might take for granted what it's like to actually pay bills on a starter salary like if you've been working for twenty years likely you're earning a lot more than the new generation and it actually costs quite a bit to live independently that an issue for you or not really. I think counting just transition from uni. Life cost of living hasn't really changed that much in saying that moved our recently. So let's put a caveat on that but at the same time you're i'm still trying to leave by the idea of living like a student. Are i try to keep my costs as low as i possibly. Can i think a lot of the people that i've worked with a conscious that low level staff are not earning quite as much inside if there's an opportunity for them to pay for hunting a lot of them have been very willing to put their hand up to desert but at the same time you know. Life is expensive and relative in common and salary speaking. Yeah absolutely there are definitely things that hamal costly for us than people who almost cool so technical question about where you get your learning. So we've talked a lot about learning on the job learning for mentors learning from experience. People do you re blogs. Listen to podcasts. Where do you get your information mind. Expansion debris books. You're listen to audio books. This is market research now. Funnily enough i recently deleted all my social media all of them. Yeah all the counts. Yeah i deleted them from. I thought and so i still have the accounts but i i got to the apps i kind of felt like i was just spending a little bit too much time that i necessarily want to be spending on the answer for me now. I make probably more conscious decisions to get information. What i want to get it so i subscribed to the strand financial review which i find to be pretty interesting in terms of some less heavy news. I listened to a couple of costs one about golf. What about okay yep. Yeah what about golf or basketball. Which is good fun and then from time to time. Try and catch soon headline news off youtube for sure. Really headline news off youtube interesting. Okay so you don't really go for your professional development through those kind of media channels then not yet. I think i use media to unwind rather than obstacle at this point i think professional developments a great thing but at the same time given the amount of time that can't to kind of have to myself on wind of wanted to not to that. Okay fair enough. that's awesome. What advice do you have for younger. Workers going into workplaces. I think just the open kane and eager to learn some of the best advice that i was given when i started was the one thing that you have control over is your attitude and so when you go in with a positive attitude ready to try a best ready to collaborate with others To the best of your ability to put your head down when it needs to be put down. I think that you're ultimately doing the best. He can do so going with a good attitude and ready to listen and learn. That's good advice. What do you enjoy most about working in professional services I think specifically for me. My well changes relatively quickly so each project. I'm on my role. What the project orients around is different which keeps me on my toes and keeps me in a place of learning. I think if i was doing the same thing in and out every day i'd get a bit for bit so i think i'm pretty lucky like that that i get to try to and figure out what i like and learn a bunch of things and then look to specialize a little later on and do you like when the world opens up again and we can travel travel. Something that you want to do with work or or you're happy based in camera now. I think i definitely want to travel with work. I'm not really sure what that looks like yet. I think i'd love to maybe given mba egger. I like the move to an nba overseas at some point and potentially working overseas for a little bit studied of essays on exchange for awhile and and locked it. So i think maybe the opportunity to work in also try. That would be really fun. Yeah you went to that. Really awesome country called canada. I go to that. Listen country code. Canada yes there was a good pick. I have to say and they're you met many awesome canadians i did. It was really galt. They weren't lying. I know know. I love your arrival story. You showed up it was it was january was or something like i just come from a music festival in australia and it was about thirty five degrees and we had a layover in career but when we got there was very light answer the next morning when i went to put on my clothes. I kinda chucked on a tee shot and some Some pads and when. I landed in toronto who was negative thirty degrees and i've never experienced anything that so it was like a sixty degree weather change and i walked outside and the was sucked out of my lungs. I wish i could say. I was exaggerating. But it was such a radical shock to the system. So i was a welcome to canada fisher. Yeah i love that. It's like oh my god then. You went back in and put some clothes on the super quickly. That's awesome so. I'm interested in like the culture shock pieces. What are three things that you thought. Were really interesting about canada. They're really stick out as as a first visitors impressions three things so first things first I would say that canadians are punctual. So yes so. The first i reckon i. I don't know engineer lectures. I attended hours at least ten to fifteen minutes light because what happened was in australia. We finish unique at ten minutes lectures ten minutes before the hour would probably dot ten minutes after the hour and so there was always time to walk to class. And kinda get there and get a drink on the way getting to canada. It was a bit of a rude awakening. When i was super light and i thought it might have just been the first couple of classes. I was trying that it was all causes. So i think that was a bit of an awakening. I think that the people it was true. The people really friendly. Everyone was super interested to know where i'd come from. Why decided to come to canada with the banks called especially their ideas of what australia was like. We all live at the beach. Rural told blonde. Blue eyes and steph everyday so it was really interesting to some of those Hollywood like stories People help people say this jail but inside that people were really lovely and really nice. The third one i think was the i really enjoyed the atmosphere of the cities which i wasn't necessarily expecting i think montreal felt very different to than couva which vote very different to run and help. They had their feel but without having done much research on canada. Before i'd gone kind of just expecting it ought to be canada sir. I think that was a bit of a surprise for me fischel. Wow i didn't realize that so it. Can you describe the different feelings between toronto. Vancouver and russi went. Yeah so. I think the toronto was portrays itself. A little bit is very culturally diverse. And i think it has that feeling you can go down the right again a burrito you can also get indian food you can their festivals all sorts of stuff so i think it is quite culturally. Us montreal fell almost european. If had a completely different feeling to toronto in that architecture was different the way people interacted. It was french fast and english. Said i thought that was interesting. Vancouver felt more than the others said it kind of had more of that west coast california vibe to it with skiing in the mountains for high but it was still really nice place to be. I think was a bit of a peculiar one. I went to bat sir. I didn't realize that it got so called every winter and for people to be totally okay with that was such a surprise to minus forty here every winter. That's crazy like why are these people living here. Some of them moved to australia. Speak of the devil. Yeah that's right you can't survive it if you have good close and good installation at your house. When my when my family came to visit me.

The numbers verbally provide color and take questions from financial folk on the once. A quarter conference call pumpkin spice lante and candy corn to be served after. If you've got an iphone. Thirteen pro max congratulations. You got the world's best smartphone display according to people who study such things apple and cider says display mate which sounds like a specialty publication sold under the counter to select clientele but is in fact a site dedicated to screens. Yes that display mate issued its in-depth evaluation of apples top tier iphone thirteen pro. Max funding the handsets. Six point seven inch super retina x. dr display with promotion. technology is the best in the industry. The site tested such factors as color accuracy brightness contrast ratio screen reflectance and visible screen resolution. I on thirteen pro. Max tested so well at earned. The publications best smartphone display award. It also got a grade of a plus apple insider says that is display mates highest overall assessment. In case you didn't know what a plus meant while mine is not the best on the planet. Apparently i will say. I am grooving on the super retina. X t r led display on my iphone. Thirteen that thing about thumb tacks. I was watching on youtube. Looked really sharp and the blacks are so black. I can see every smudge and speck of dust. The beta braid keeps on keeping on i download. Blog ran a piece on tuesday. Saying apple had ceded the second betas of ios fifteen dot one pat o. s. fifteen dot one tv os fifteen one and watch os eight thought. One to developers not long after the piece was updated to say that the eighth beta of mac. Os monterey was also out to dev types. Now if you're one to wear both in napa watch and a mask you will be glad to hear. That apple is working on the unlocked with apple. Watch bog told you earlier. This week of a number of iphone. Thirteen owners complaining that they could not activate that feature. I also told you of a response from apple saying that that issue would be fixed and an upcoming software update. It looks like that'll be a long in the next update for iphone a separate piece for my download blog says the second beta of ios fifteen dot. One squashes that bog. As long as. We're talking about problems on the iphone. I heard from a few mac os. ken listeners. In response to my alarming alarm issue told you yesterday. That's getting my iphone thirteen. My phone will only wake me with sound. Built into iphone. Used to wake me with songs that i'd chosen for my itunes or apple music. One and a half listeners. Have had this problem serendipity q. Road in saying. I have the same issue. You mentioned about the iphone alarm. It won't play apple music even if you have downloaded that music hope. The problem will be fixed. Ken no relation. Roden to say i an iphone thirteen on friday and restored it from my iphone. Ten are directly. The alarm kept my customized ringtone which happens to be up around the bend by ccr. Quite effective i might add. Thanks and keep up the good work signed can meanwhile brendan wrote to say. My fiance was complaining that her alarm on her new iphone. Thirteen wouldn't allow her to use music the next morning or the one after that it worked. I don't know what changed. I'm helpful you. Rock so says brendan well. I don't know either brendan. I've tried a few different times with a few different songs. Downloaded or streaming. Nothing does the track as two cans comment. I backed up from my cloud rather than going from a local backup maybe that would have avoided the issue anyway. My alarm still wakes me. It doesn't surprise and delight though it surprises in makes me a tiny bet with the release of the iphone thirteen line. Google has an interesting idea if you can't beat them. Ask them to join you the way a piece from macrumors puts it. Google is on an endeavour to convince new iphone thirteen users to transform their devices. Home screen to look like android. You know there are cheaper ways to do that. According to macrumors the blog post written by google's director for the ios platform feature screen shots of an iphone thirteen home screen filled with google apps and widgets. The post implies that customers should possibly consider replacing some of the apple default ios apps such as photos safari calendar reminders. And even phone with google equivalent of those apps including google photos. Google chrome google calendar google tasks and google voice respectively. If you can't beat them ask them to join you. An answer from apple around jelly scrolling. That is likely to leave. Some people perturbed. I told you earlier this week about the watch. It wiggle movement noted by some on the screen of the latest ipad mini apiece for men. Gadget described the issue where one side of the screen scrolls at a different rate than the other producing a wall bowl occasionally noticeable in portrait view over on twitter dealer bone executive editor of the verd- said. Yeah that's the thing that happens. Basically he explained many screens. Do this most of the time. You don't see it because it's in the direction of the scroll when it's crossed to the direction of the scroll it can be noticeable especially on larger screens. Apple likes the way he's thinking on tuesday. A piece for mars technica had the cupertino company. Saying yeah that's the thing that happens quoting ours. Apple has told us that the jelly scroll issue on the six generation ipad mini as normal behavior for lcd screens because the screens do refresh line by line. There is a tiny delay between when the lines at the top of the screen and lines at the bottom are refreshed this can cause uneven scrolling issues like the ones observed on the ipad. Neither bone nor ars technica by that completely and another twitter post earlier. This week bone pointed out that there are plenty of screens that mitigate the problem in some way similarly the ars technica piece says we maintain that this effect is noticeable on the ipad. Many in a way that it's not noticeable on other sixty hertz lcd ipod. We've tested like the ipad air for and the latest three hundred twenty nine dollar ipad. There's also a clear dividing line down the middle of the screen in portrait mode as observed in our testing. The upshot is that the company doesn't believe there is a hardware or software issued a fix and at the screen. Apparently is the way it is likely to leave. Some people perturbed more news in a moment but first a word from nebi creator of the nebi by mohan spa shower if you're somebody who's concerned with conservation nebi ah is for you or sustainability is at the core of every product nebi makes their products are better for people and the planet.

Ep. 466 wine2wine Session Recordings | Wine Meets Wellness

"Italian wine podcast. She sheen with italian wine. People italian podcast as wind to wind two thousand twenty media partner is proud to present series of sessions chosen to highlight key themes and ideas and recorded during the two day event held on november twenty third and twenty fourth twenty twenty one twenty two thousand eight represented the first ever fully digital edition of the business to business for visit wine to wind dot net. And make sure to attend future additions of wine to wine business for him before we start. I have to tell you that. I'm sitting in a room looking at my powerpoint slide and nothing else which is one of the weirdest presentations of ever done so. Please bear with me while i go through this What you may explain in this year all this publicity about a wine cold abilene which was launched by. Hollywood stock has a karen day. Isn't her friend catch hearted powers and the reason is got so much publicity wasn't bay that they will announce a bunch of celebrities launching wine but because of the claims that will make you about this but coal clean wine and the publicity said that they would take on the wine industry at introduced transparency to wine or do they mean by that well. Interestingly enough not only did this take off. They sold lots and lots knots of wine but it turns out that at the same time other people might be these climbs in the media as well they were these people feldman done at the same time through. Full businesses sided. Were also talking about that was claimed a what disclaim why what they were talking about was wine with. I will transparent about the ingredients that were using in particularly what they were saying is it commercial. Wine is full of additives ingredients. That are really bad for you. And the wine industry is not talking about it and that they have made it their mission to forced the wine industry to start talking about these toxic chemicals. That are apparently in wine. Szriously enough what's really or through interesting about. Is that neither of the people who are producing them. Neither as nor the team behind go clean one actually told you anything about where the winds ten from the whole sales pitch is about the fact that they're free of toxins now missed and i've been in this for a while. I've been noticing that in the united states. It was little social discussion about wine additives. And i wanted to know where it was coming from. So i i did research before this happened and i discovered that this four drivers of a nutrient which wanted to st really needs to understand at the mind legit so relatively small trend inside the united states but many of the people who are proponents of this Tax on an industry that the wine industry needs to know about and it needs to know how to response to so festival. Where is this coming from with this. Four sources of feeding into it. I is conservative. Environment as code from rebecca's young people particularly very concerned about sustainability and the environment and ponds. That interesting is how many people attending to vegetarian and vegan diet because they know that upon by style is better for the planet and this is really nice. Something said that. The wind was vegan when she started looking into wine. She was horrified to discover the wine. Sometimes in production uses animal based products like egg whites or is loss and shape. The world needed to know and of course very additional dumped hundreds and hundreds of years But suddenly these things for the wine. Industry traditions obeying presenters as noxious so. There's the vegetarian vegan pot of the second part of it is the popularity of something called the cato diet which is really explored is one of the diet since i've not at states and has been for the last couple of years. It's it's basically in short a high fat low carbohydrate diet and anyone who's own it is really particularly worried about sugar. Want to kick any sugar out of their diet so cool the clean beauty trend which i'll talk about in a moment but it's had an outsized impact on how people are thinking about wire claim. Your really started at ten years ago with questions. Whether they were sick or noxious ingredients in in cosmetic formulations on his up in the world claim bishi of of beauty in a way now beginning to affect the industries and the fourth leg of this table of. What's behind this is the coast wellness trends Emphasis below law things at one end. You've got very subservience. Health spiced things like good nutrition aging public getting good sleep yoga meditation. Mindfulness but what's happening. Is that the other end of the wellness trend. Starting to say things which studios lines which all the beginning craven nines in is impacting is going to impact wine industry right so they might think that people behind the claim wine trends and associated wine brands is. They're making claims that these wines a literally i the otis or the healthier for you than conventional wine. Now you can say this climbed from the good claim wine paper which is the two young women that launched their claim that they literally come out and say in their advertising. But if you take wine you'll have less likelihood hang the reason that they're saying that is because now on new entrants to alcohol. Do they might not realize that. Make these kinds of clancy's bordering on the flouting mole but a number of these companies actually coming out and saying that they want the healthy end implication that conventional wines unhealthy. So he's a company that stunk gentleness is cold wink which is a data driven company. It started a few years ago. They look at they so wine mary online. Merely it's bo coined that's being rate bashed in different ways. I still at two different consumer segments. And i spoke to brian. Smith found About another matter. I was really interested in how you do. Technologically driven Wine company and the way that they look at consumer behavior and then i design winds to fit different consumer nations and just before This want suddenly the wonderful one. Which again tells you know way about where it comes from other than its from france or it's from spain. Packaging is very close to being on about things like my stomach's about policy which is very clear at the moment All if they brand imagery is around so defining sixties Newsy the implication that there's a health and wellness five. This brian smith is maybe release by launched. This wind was because he lives in los angeles hit started to say the wellness and mindfulness training. Spread really rapidly and that. He thought that it was unin. Matter of time before wind needed to step up and produce mines in this category on these ones have proliferated at an amazing right. Some of them like life fines very slow players. This one minor bodies is actually a low calorie wine. That's just been launched. Its by a big player. Interestingly allow these these selling really well there actually technological products. they're not. they're not traditional winemaking. So in order is premium power wine. I probably used something like a reverse. Osmosis alcohol To the right is fit fine which is very interesting. One again. It's it's one that is not very different from any other one that you might see at the on has four degrees of alcohol so this is not a low alcohol. Coury one as well but because of the badging as to do with four. It's actually a best selling wine. That whole foods again. My magazine mining is wind. Business international interviewed the guy and he says The winemaking has been done to reduce any possibility that you'll feel lousy afterwards so this now one in with because i can introduce some things biogenic amines which i'll talk about it. A little bit lighter which can make you feel unwell if you if you drink that in combination with some foods but again it's not a they a deal about where the grapes come from the mandate comes from a who made it is not part of the the the the advertising but yet they've managed to build community around this. They've managed to get people who are into health and wellness fitness who have a limited life round this friend which is quite extraordinary talked about the cato diet which is actually driving this cajun exploited on the scene in the nineteen seventies. It was part of this little diets that were out in those days. Like god's deldot in the atkins dot And his promises the issue date only high fat and low carbohydrate and not very much protein and actually it's not that bright died intensive vitamin deficiency. Some some sixty people actually died in the us when it was very popular so if fell out of it fill out a fashion. I lost weight on the one thousand nine hundred ninety but nobody was really using exception bodybuilders because to do it safely taking vitamins. But then she doesn't. Three report came out in the journal. Science that people were losing tremendous amounts of wench during this time. And if they were about nutrition they could also mind healthy Somebody called. Tim ferriss in Crown by his report out of this is kind of the mile version of wellness. It's people using Techniques some of which assigns if dodgy some of which ninety promising to change the body so it's things like limousine themselves for his colt shot twice boosting immune system or using headphones that supposedly pump indifferent on brian wives to help you concentrate efforts that kind of technological approach to the body and tim ferriss known in this community bottomed roden show which is popular. Podcast this this took off. And it's now america's favorite dot k. And most important thing is that it relies on low sugar and the other thing is once people start using k show they actually find it difficult metabolize alcohol so relationship with one engine so one of the buyer hackers who was really interesting this is gone taught wise and he discovered after he went on kato that he had to stop drinking wine because if this conflict so he started looking for wines that he could continue to drink can he fans his agents from He found natural wines. In europe that were low alcohol very large yoga different job. He started introducing it to his biohacking friends and pretty soon. He had a really big business. And now it's a huge business inside the united states a subscription for natural ones. But if you look at the the thing on the performance latest. What's really interesting is again. He's not selling wines as being part of the mandible cheetah to the little bit but for him. What's really important is that all of these health gurus have said that. This is the one between with katia. Now todd why isn't somebody who's just running a business. He's also putting a lot of advertising out there over social media which is denigrating commercial wines. It talks about how much they contain schumer. And as you can see from the picture he actually makes it appear as though one might don't think actual kind sugar into the vet as opposed to Booking digital one of the products that hayes being particularly attacking is anything that uses a thing. Eason's cold mega Which is a gripe concentrate which is sometimes used in really cheap. Four for color What's really nine hundred about some of these companies. Just when they talk about other winemakers token as everybody out in the market is using mega. Talking is everybody has really high residual sugar. It's a technique that's cold disparagement. Marketing denigration marketing. Which is tonight is the identification competition in the case of todd. Why actually believes that. I've spoken to him He's very passionate about health and wellbeing. He's very passionate about his Hacking also something. A conspiracy theorist toll plus check. And he he gives the number of these tools but he tells pick the wine industry is actually colluding to make people unhealthy on one of his claims. Is that what the alcohol is. Not because park relational climate change as we would think because they want companies actually adding more alcohol to get people addicted to their product He has point high rached. unfortunately what he's discovered is the wine industry is hiding things. He often since the ofter laboratory to be tested over loss of hall and he often finds the alcoholism label business relationship to the actual alcohol inside the show ended. The sugar and alcohol is much higher stage. He's becoming an increasingly important posts them. We've talked about clean itchy. What's this got to do with wine with very talented cameron's diaz's is pont. A catcher powers comes out of the claim beachie woes and the two women that stashes the good claimed one company actually started on are actually petitions to now. What happens in ask the nine there with sunny about an ingredient co parabens which is a preservative in cosmetics stocks from getting funguses engulfing oxidizing and in a study that was done on birth cancer. Some today Slime had rescue them souls on it was absolutely riddled with parabens. As the what bay steamed was there was a relationship between using power vans and developing breast cancer. And when this got out eight in the beauty industry free full because emerson has power by this this this preservative so there was a real rush to get rid of parabens and also get in as began to look at other grades will make. We've got other ingredients that are really bad for you. And a whole whole movement has sprung up which is to remove anything. Ken ovation gradients now. Unfortunately in order for abusing. Britain's leave work innate. Some vase ingredients and it turns out that they want ad for you. Anyway when somebody went handled through the pair of studies. I discovered that not only was the power of intending on everything. Lavar it slides using had actually watched with cleaner. That had paraguayans in it. So it wasn't the breast cells. Had so many power vinton it was the slide itself but this didn't change anything and said this is kicked off a whole movement to move towards natural ingredients to get rid of many things. Go to chemical nine. Unfortunately in some cases people using worst was ingredients and in some has it the moving into botanic switch which actually becoming endangered. So it's very significant. Some of the entrance decline wine come from this backgrounds and the other thing about the clean beauty. Movements is the issue scientific. It's it's using language from the world of alternative health it assigned to that foxton sin song which is not supported by scientific and medical understanding. And leslie and let's talk about this company which is cold scout and stuck now not sell. It is a really really interesting company. is what's called. Multi level marketing company. Which in itself is quite a controversial style of business. It's where instead of employing people. As sales people company recruits consultants in the in. The old is a model where somebody chooses to sell it to their friends and ninety on They sell but also if they can get somebody else to sell the product they get a commission on that person sales as well very difficult for consultants tonight. Money is still a product. They really want to consume themselves so it was founded after a lawyer. Cole sarah. She said that she really not wind. She wanted to trying to sell it. She had she been moved to start training as a smiliar and she discovered that every time shootout drinking she'd answer feel sick. An winston reduced the alcohol. She still felt really sick so in her origin story. She goes to lots of doctors very hard to find out what she did. Sometimes in the media tissue into natural pencil thomas's doctors. It was probably naturopathic because they said to her. It was the toxins in one. It was the additives and the winemaking process. That was making her sick. Not the alcohol so she set out. She says to start this company where she only sells ones. That have no additives preservatives just wine. Interestingly she doesn't climate to natural wine. I've tried to find out from the company whether they use things like he not unitedly east to trees. They went on some media questions The the wine is bulk. Wine again is not important. They don't tell you who makes aware comes from the winds very high priced. They the big selling point is a fundamental suits. Linus this no residual sugar in this has struck a nerve with consumers even though it's quite a difficult siles model in its first year of operation it might twenty million dollars on track this year to make sixty million dollars which is an astonishing growth. And anyone who says you can't make money in wine should have a look at this model but again using what's cultist farage marketing and what's dangerous about. This is because of their model which getting ordinary people to sell the wines. So i think at the moment they have some thousands. Maybe three thousand consultants across the united states. The individual consultants are not professional sales people. So what they're doing is they're trying to sell to instagram and social media and they using these names and the donuts attack normal wine and they tell the difference not to drink conventional wine. Because if you can see on this this thing about Our have zero grams of in added sugar. It's tended by actual paypal and not mass produced by industrial agriculture methods. We don't wanna it. Of course they suggesting that everybody else does nightline tree and the most Anything about it. Is they keep talking about the two hundred fifty commonly approved additives like theranos cyanide or megapixel or gmo is i actually went into effect. Chicks this honor. Gmo's that legal fees. Outside the united states inside the united states alleged my yeast in theory a legal there aren't actually on the market fermanagh cyanide to look with juiced a long time ago in soviet to remove heavy metals from wind from i on a you can't even buy fair sign and it's being removed from the register of legal attitudes so these is not actually true but they been spread far and wide and fast through social media fissile. We have to ask the question. I mean other is conventional wine toxic. And i was really interesting this so i spoke to a woman. Call dr crane stockley. Who is a pharmacologist. She's one of the best known in the world. She creates she works with lawmakers. Choose to talk about what is legal to use us in wines if a country has registry of legal additives and processing is and this changes as scientific understanding changes. Don't treat told me with in the last twenty years. Winemaking has become so good that a lot of winemaking additives says actually being removed from the registers that one man to die use less processing agents than i did forty years ago. It simply because viticulture is so good. Secondly what she told me is that there are no toxins as we would understand that in wine pop from ethanol itself. Wine is extremely safe product. It's highly regulated more than any other foodstuff and there is nothing in wine that can do any harm. Even if it's a residual if something What about combinations of things. If people using yeast and enzymes and ppv to color could the combination causing damage. She said now the problem with wine. The unhealthy thing is ethanol. The can be one problem though which is interesting. And she said it was biogenic amines and this seems to be the culprit in some new world wines that s you do molecular feminization it can produce these compounds. Co by jenner came which One of which is histamine can give you a slightly unpleasant reaction. Interestingly it's not the wine itself that will make people feel lousy. It's what they ate in combination with a wine so this system is also found in things like cured mates in cheese in fish in some vegetables so fuel standing around in often annual drinking a shot and this had miletic feminization from a warm climate area ends. You're snacking on cheese and stock usury as some sorts of vegetables. You're actually getting an accumulated dose of history that is going to make you for By the end of the day. But it's not the wine. It's the combination of everything you ate during that day. unfortunately that's a very complex. Things have to tell consumers. It's much easier for these people to simply say conventional wine is unhealthy. Okay so now becomes a question of the claim. Companies are making an enormous amount of money. So should is this an opportunity for the wine industry. Is this something that the one industry should also jump on. One was interesting. Things is that there should on x. Ignition points said that she discounted the nielsen was saying that people would pay more money for things with free from than they would for things that had healthy gradients. So do i mean by that. So if you can put on a packet of something that it's it's janai freddie or its aluminium free or it's tiger for you can charge loan money for that product than if you actually Have healthy ingredients insiders Shook pick will be saying lie. Wine his radiation free. Or whatever i think the answer has to be a nod for one very clear raisin. There's a study that was done in two thousand sixteen. That really clarify this more than anything. That when you start disparaging when you stopped making fia buys marketings it doesn't drive people towards your product. It actually ruins the time lockett. There was a study. Done it on a low income community which which is aimed bombarded with messages about organic fruit and vegetables. And the organic for visuals. People said we don't spray pesticide on our on fruit in vegetables So if you choose us you can guarantee that you're not getting any of these nasty toxins and what happens is people who didn't have a lot of money on one has couldn't afford to buy organic but they really functions or what conventional written vegetables might have on it and so they just stopped buying fruit and vegetables altogether. So let's talk about is pesticide something that we should be really worried about. I spoke to the l. cbo in canada. Hit test lab test. Every single wind comes into the region which is over twenty two thousand a year and they said they test for pesticide residue and of the twenty two thousand six hundred wines that they tested last year. They found twenty. That had pesticide residue so going down. Fee-based message is is not only dishonest. That it has the possibility that it will actually bring the entire. Why not get into disrepute. The other problem is all bottles of wine. Look sign if people start to decide that there is some wines which are good for you when someone's which flip toxins constituents can't tell the difference all of the bottles of executive signed the other thing is that making health claims about alcohol is absolutely against the law Under the trump administration they body that was responsible for this debate has been philly cheese lewis. It hasn't on after people but under a biden administration. We can expect that they're going to follow through on some warnings so watch the why industry during the fastest. I honestly believe that is claimed wine phenomenon and some of the associated claims that are made out of. It's a very small nation at the moment but because of the repeatedly with which is moving across social media. I think it is a dire threat to the wine industry that we have to take very very seriously so in the face of face to face the fact that trying to explain that line is not toxins. It takes more woods and more time than just to go with. My wind doesn't have gmo. what can we do it. First of all you need to know that consumers if of these healthy winds are not interested in sustainability story. They don't care about Where the wine was night. That don't care about it. She didn't care about the the family that light at all of those trees simply don't work with the audience. What does is grain message so the moon that you can talk about the greenness of the farm and if you used the word about the health of your land is really important. Why talk about it. Secondly they critics of the wine industry have got some points. It turns out that the wine industry has been very poor and very dishonest about talking about alcohol shambles. And it's time that we did talk about them. Input act courage patients. They are on the libels. And lastly it's time that we started to talk about the winemaking process. Maybe the wine trade has been at fault bayer over years and years we've presented the idea of blindness is collect hostile family green thing but ever since louis hester discovered the secret affiliation two centuries ago chemistry is an integral part of what makes winemaking work now. The one thing really good at making some chemical night's sound really positive polyphenyls Chill and i think it's time that we talked about the fact that as well as being an art and a craft wine is also a process of chemistry and rather than giving in to people who phobic about chemical nine. We as you explain how the chemistry of wine actually works. It's obvious that people at interest were interested in health are interested in some of those stories. Lastly another thing too aware of is that it's really important to take it seriously. Because at the end of twenty twenty two possibly wine labeling is finally into the reality in the eu eu doesn't ne- well who have to follow because they want to export to a year. So what does wine labeling main. It means that anything that has been used as ingredients in the wine whether it's knock united against or an enzyme or scope s.'s or soviet compounds. Whatever we'll have to be reliable what will not reliable is on processing is something that is edits. One doesn't have to be talked about. Is this going to scare the pants. People actually nor the kulp in the uk has been doing this. Obviously isn't it turns out people read on what they do care about. Is now that care about the alcohol level sugar level and i care about transparency. So that is my talk on playing one on. I hope that you will take it seriously. At the moment is not something that you're paying consumers particularly carrying about but where california goes and where the united states goes to the best of the world often follows. Thank you much certainly have a number of challenges and for those of us. Who are you know in the wine trade in the. Us and seeing a lot of these brands grow particularly online. I think it is absolutely something we need to take seriously. I have a question for you as it relates to A lot of the brands you're talking about have a very heavy focus on community and on social media from that building that kind of collective consonance can you speak to that as it relates to messaging in hal Brands talking to wine drinkers. It'll different well. What's really interesting. is that this. Content is being generated by wandering themselves. It's not coming from the company's people who and it's really because people gathering communities for fitness activities and so it's becoming more and more usual usually when they do that this sharing wine with each other and so it's an organic process is having rather than mafi hosts that's happening which is really really interesting but by the way i should say the guy who puts fit fit together has been very thoughtful about it. He's done a race to dubai jammies and so he's. He's moved to remove anything from the wine. That could be a problem. I i think. I think there was also some really interesting innovation going on one. It's not all bad or negative but the thing that is really negative is the disparagement marketing and and having communities of people coming together. Not just to talk about wine but to disparage. Conventional line is something that we should be really worried about. Okay we have fifty five seconds left if you had a big bag of cash to go and invest in one of these clean wine companies. Who would be. I would be actually the fact that they're a A login auditor company really clear about what they do in the very innovative economic will be driving found winds because on the one hand. I think talk. I listened to some of these conspiracy theories in rolled my eyes. And i think he's also i think he's a good actor in terms of hip takes good wines. He he pays people in time. He pays people really well. And we need more of that in With that we're gonna leave on that. I'm going to go and get some money together.
