"sam steph" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"He shot thirty four percent from three in the series. Well, he's he's like a fifty percent three point shooter. And in the fourth quarter of the six games he shot seventeen percent from three. Holy moly is his new show is going to be called. That's that's bad for him. And then remote or to keep this in the. Big picture context. He was the biggest reason for that history-making collapse that they suffered up three to one on lebrons team back in twenty sixteen. And remember in games five through seven when they blew the lead. He was thirty percent from the field twenty five percent from three. So we've seen this this act before in that game seven that's his home game at oracle. He goes six of nineteen in the fourth quarter. He goes one of six from the field. And one of five from three we've we've seen it before. And we saw it again, last night, and I hate to the bear bad tidings, but these are bad tidings for a guy who's that great shooter. Skip. I want to disagree with you, but I can't skip I was willing to go as far Sam Steph curry, what to win the final. He's finals MVP I might be willing to put him in front of magic considering what he would have been able to accomplish. But if you remember skill magic had moments, we remember in eighty his rookie year game six forty two fifteen and seven. We also remember in eighty four skip the baby Corinne, the baby's guy magic had moments in moment in playoff in the finals. That will never forget. We keep waiting for Steph to have those type moments we know what he represented the regular season. We know he can shoot the ball from distance better than anybody before him in may be anybody's even to come after him. But we have yet to see it now. He's been in the finals five times he suffered to defeat and in the three wins, even if you give him skip, even if you say okay he deserved the first one. They gave the Iggy because of what he did with the next to Kevin Durant was heading showed us, the best player on that team agree and more than deserved to be the finals MVP. You make a compelling argument if they get to game seven, and they win in the way of going clay probably going to be the MVP, because here's the thing, people probably don't know in their two wins clay score. The most points Klay with the lean score in their two wins. Klay shot, fifty eight percent from three point line skip and staff. Whatever reason we keep waiting. We touched on in the last segment skip you. Can't shoot the ball like he can't for distance. And when the tea rubber needs to meet the row. They put the ball in your hand and say deliver and you drop it. You can't drop the eggs on the way to the Mark. No. Because we put them all in your basket. Steph skip this, this would if he gives to a game seven, and they lose it's a little thing, but I think like did you really expect stuff to beat to runaway Kawai and all that all those role playing except for the whale? Yeah. When he doesn't have clay, he doesn't have Katie know skip you gotta get them to a game seven. He scored four points. Once clay got injured give. That's not good enough. I agree with Eggy. That was keeping him in the game. It was gray mon- boogie. I'm like step..

"I didn't I didn't start out to write a book. I started out the day after Sam celebration of light their life. There was a very strange rainbow that appeared in the sky and from where we stood on our deck. It looked like the rainbow the rainbow did not arc it. Instead went straight up and down. And it looked like it was coming absolutely from the cemetery where some of ashes were buried and that day I sat down and wrote a Facebook post about that rainbow. And that even in, you know, great darkness. There could be a moment of beauty and. Writing. Those few words helped stop my brain. From it's endless running about the grief for just a few seconds and over the net that the next day. I started writing a Facebook post at least a one a day every single day about something that had happened that day that I was grateful for and it wasn't that. I sat down at that point. And said I'm going to write these posts in these posts are going to become a book and the book will be published. It was the only way in the absolute bottomless grief that I could remember that. There were good things in the world. There were incredible people supporting us that we were no matter how broken we were that we still as a family. Were able to support each other and love and laugh, and even sometimes that laughter would be through streaming tears. And so I wrote these posts day after day, and in the end, I actually wrote a Daily Post for two and a half years, and in that time people that we knew were responding to the posts. And then they started sharing the posts out with people they knew, and I started to get messages from people saying, why don't you take these and make them into a book with the idea that? Really the themes that were coming up day after day in my posts where the idea of unconditional love connection to nature in a daily practice of gratitude can help no matter how deep the hurt the sorrow. The brief no matter how bad life is those can still help you feel better each day. And it became a book. I would imagine though as much if you feel unconditional love row of your children same included if you could see him today, you'd want to smack them. Oh, absolutely. Absolutely. I would hug him smack him. And then take a walk holding his hand. How do you reconcile those feelings? With the knowledge that. With great love. Sometimes there are those moments of absolute joy. And there are those moments of not so happy and. I I have not felt the anger in San Steph that some people told me I would feel. But I still. He had so much to live for. And he he brought so much joy and so much love to everybody. He met that it makes me sad and angry that that was taken from the world and that it was taken because he made a choice with drugs. A stupid choice, but a choice a stupid choice. Same headed drug education at all. Yes. I mean, he had had the excuse me. He had had the normal public school dare program. And then he also when he was arrested for DUI. He did. The classes required by the state to reinstate is license. And he certainly knew he was a very very smart in. He certainly knew the risks. Clearly, the high to him was worth that risk. I would imagine. It's a belief that may happen to some people. It's not gonna happen to me. Absolutely. About your mother how she's doing. Again, I would say, you know, both all of our parents, we're we're very fortunate that both my husband, and I both our parents are live and both all of our parents were alive, and they my in laws live next door to us. My parents live ten miles away, and my parents, and my laws strength through this. You know, they lost a grandson, they adored, and they also watched the pain of what it was doing to their their own children and their grandchildren. My mother and father both has found ways to heal while it will never life will never be the same. Again. My father has found it primarily. He's a the Protestant minister. He has found it primarily through his face. And my mother has found it through continuing. She's says she's eighty three and she's still substitute teaches in kindergarten first and second grade, and she finds hope through working on literacy skills with little kids. Where do you find your hope? I find the whole I find hope in seeing the incredible of that surrounds us. And in seeing what we grow in our gardens and in the beauty of Vermont. And we do, you know, the title of the book of grief, garlic Sam. The last six months of his life. He worked at an organic farm, and he works on that farm. He found peace in a way that we had never seen him the that happy at the job and one of the things he loved growing the most. There was garlic. He just thought garlic was the coolest thing. And and when he died, the firm Sam was not a, you know, normal gladiolas and things like that at a funeral or sort of of life. He wasn't that kind of guy. So we decorated the town meeting meeting hall with garlic and hot pepper plants and squashes he had grown on the farm and watching that garlic the farm after the service gave us the garlic had grown, and we planted it, and we have kept it going in perennial garlic bed since then. And watching that garlic come up every year. Gives me hope and gives me a connection to the earth and taking care of the earth, and knowing that, you know, the garlic now Sam didn't actually touch those clothes of garlic. But he, but he cared for the original close, and that that gives me great hope. At the same time. Chris. What happened to you? And your family could have easily destroyed you I mean, absolutely. You put your position could have turned to drugs alcohol suicide. Absolutely. Why didn't you? One we didn't because the day after Sam died. We took our youngest. He wanted to go back to school. And so we took him to his high school and met with school staff and one of the school staff members who had been very close to Sam told us that we needed to not let the darkness be the end of the story, the sadness the grief that that that couldn't be the end of this story, and that Sam wouldn't want that. And that it's a moment when that person said that I was somebody rotated because really at that moment. I didn't want anyone to tell me what we should or shouldn't do. But then after the service of life. I have this this cousin. Who is I'm an only child. He's my only. Cousin and we've been very close since we were little, and he had come out from Indiana to be with us during this time and his brother had passed away when he was twenty years old and my cousin made the comment to me as he was about to leave that when his brother died that he not only lost his brother. He lost his mother because my aunt in her love for her son who had passed away. It was like she was gone to. She was here, but she was never the same. And and she was very. Sort of self isolated in her grief and my cousin stood out by our alpacas. And looked at me and said, if you do that to your kids, I will come back, here and beach and that stuck in my head. I came in. I told my husband that and said we can't let. If our kids who are in such pain right now with Sam Steph if we leave them too because we are so broken. The what what will they do? And so we made a foe. We made a plan that day that we needed to figure out how we were all going to survive this. And there were times when they're still are times when that was very very hard to do. And that really what I wanted to do was curl up in a ball under a blanket and just stay there. But that can't be for us. That can't be the end of the story. There's too much. There's too much to live for. We're talking with author. Chris Francourt, you're on conversation. Ninety four WIP about her new book of grief, garlic and gratitude returning to hope enjoy my shattered life. Sam's love story. Sam her son died from an opiate overdose. My name's Peter Salomon. Chris what do you want parents to know? I want parents to know first and foremost that they need to pay attention. When I was in high school, the big thing in Vermont was you know, you went up into the mountains to people's deer camp. And you hit a bonfire had a beer. We now are in a time where our kids can easily get especially things like the the Chinese mill coming into the country, and it's easy to get and it's cheap. And our kids believe that these things won't hurt them. Parents need to pay attention. They need to be seeing how their kids are doing really looking at them looking at their social media presence. See how they're doing. And but I also want parents. To recognize that even when their kids are irradiating, and they haven't done the dishes, and they haven't made their bed, and they haven't done those things. That they have such a gift in having their children there and to not squander that just to not don't waste time. Chasing things that at the end of the day. Don't matter as much as that incredible life that you have there that you should nurture and hold onto and give thanks for every moment. Truly important words, you're offering us. Thank you. What do you think? Sam would say if you could read the book. I think I would say that I should have included a few other funny stories about Sam, and I truly. I truly believe. That he would be proud of us recognizing. His incredible the gift he gave in his love of people. He. Excuse me. He Sam was the kind of kid that he would go into the nearby town. And he would supposed to you know, he'd say I'm going into town. I'll be back in an hour. And he would come back three hours later. And the reason he came back three hours later was that he sat on the town green with someone who was just sitting there alone. And he would come home, and he would say sorry. I'm and today, I talked to this person. And I would go Sam seriously. Okay. We know that person has issues and on my goodness. I'm a public school educator, and I am ashamed to admit that at times, I did a my God you sat with that person. You probably got head lice. And I would to out about it doing the, you know, you had more important things to do Sam then to sit. With this person. And he would go mom. Have you ever talked to this person? And I'd go. No. And he would he would look at me. And he would say mom, did you know that that person is a decorated Vietnam war hero? Did you know that this person used to be a chef in New York City? Did you know this person makes beautiful art? And I didn't know what. Because I never took the time to get to know those people, and we knew he had this gift what we didn't know was how many people it hit touched. And when he died. And to this day. We still have people come up to people. We don't know who say. Sam was the only person that talked to me at lunch at the high school. Sam was the only person I told that my father wasn't a mental institution. Sam was the person, you know, the number of kids that have come up to us and said sandwich, the first person I told that I was gay because I knew he would accept me. And we have it following his death as we realized the magnitude of that love that you showed even as he struggled himself. We made a conscious decision that we would try to look at people the way fantasy and that we when I say we I mean, my husband and myself, we are not extroverts. This do you of going up to people sitting alone at an event in saying could we fit with you? We have met the most amazing people in doing this. And I think Sam. Is proud of us for trying to take that legacy of love and continue it. You say you're not an extrovert. But yet you turn yourself in your family inside out in the book. Absolutely. I when I say about an extrovert. I mean, I'm not an extrovert in terms of. Say for my job. I have to do a lot of public speaking at work. At home at outside of work. I'm really happy to be home with my husband. My children, my grandchildren, the animals the gardens and going and meeting new people is really uncomfortable for me. But in the book. Yes, we aired Artie laundry. Pretty well. What do you? Tell your grandchildren about their ankle. Sam. We tell them. That he loves them. And they talk about him. Our oldest granddaughter is five and a half. And our daughter was pregnant with her the time of death, and we had twin two and a half year old, grandchildren. They all they they talk about. I'm cool Sam I wear earrings. Most of the time that have a particular tree of life that Sam loved and they when I saw them yesterday, they come up, and they poke my earrings and go SAM's tree. And they here. The stories about him in terms of love. Laughter. Joy at some point. We will have.

"Good morning. Kris van core. Good morning. Peter. Thank you for inviting me to your show. My pleasure. Who was? Sam was our middle son. And Sam was from the moment he entered the world. He was a it just beacon of light and love and joy and acceptance and just just plain an amazing young, man. And what happened to him? I'm not Tober ninth two thousand thirteen we got a call. Sam had been up at his grandparents house to spend the night. And we got a call from my mother that he was dead. And in the next few hours as we raised up there thinking that it had to be a she actually I mean, what she originally said was they think is dead. They knew what that time. But I think she felt it was a kinder thing to say, we think so. And when we got there when we worked with the police investigators in the medical examiner. What we found was that Sam had died of an opioid overdose by putting offense. No pain patch into his mouth. Where is there any clue that there was a problem? Yes. And no there were many clues, but not necessarily all the clues fit together in the right way. Sam had been diagnosed about six months prior to his death as suffering from bipolar disorder. And what we didn't realize until he was diagnosed we knew that, you know, originally he'd been diagnosed as suffering with depression, and that the medications tried for that didn't help because that wasn't what was going on. And what we found out at the time of is. Correct diagnosis was that Sam. We knew he had been smoking marijuana. We knew he had gotten caught driving under the influence. We knew some of those things we didn't realize because he was so functional and because. He just continued to exhibit that incredible of in positive energy. We didn't realize how much he was using drugs and alcohol, and you know, afterwards hindsight is really clear we could put together a lot of pieces that at the time. We didn't we didn't realize what they all meant and say him at the time of his death was you know, being treated for the bipolar disorder. He was he had just gotten a great new job at Middlebury college. He had just put the deposit down on an apartment, he really seemed very positive about where his life was headed and was working on rebuilding some friendships with with people that you know, as he had struggled that he had maybe said things he shouldn't have at times. He was on such an upswing. We we really this came out of the blue. Why then do you think you put defense no in his mouth? Well, in the one of my crusades is that we as a society hide from the issue of opioid use. And what we didn't know at the time of fans death was that in our little county in Vermont in the three weeks prior to Sam Steph. I'm sorry. The six weeks prior to San stuff there had been three other sentinel debts. We didn't know because we weren't in. This this circle. We didn't know that. There was such a thing as misusing a no pain patch in that way. We later heard both from the medical examiner and some friends that a lot of people a lot of. Young opioid users were talking about using sentinel pain patches this way. What Sam clearly didn't realize was that this particular. Patch was a much higher dosage. Than normal. And we don't know if it had been a smaller dosage if he would've survived it. Why was he taking no at all? He wasn't okay. Well it. I understand you're saying we didn't realize because for so many people out there. Opioid abuse drug addiction in general happens to those people over there doesn't happen to people like us does it absolutely. You know, we we talk a lot when Sam died we made a family decision that we were not going to hide from how he had died. We weren't going to keep it a secret. And my mother when we did his celebration of life, many, family members and friends spoke about San, but my mother who is this now eighty three year old woman who is four foot eight and a just force of nature. She stood up and said, you know, this is the woman who had found one of the lights of her life dead in her living room, and she stood up and said drugs took him in the weeks following his death. We actually had had people come up to us and say your mother didn't need to say the drugs killed him. Nobody needed to know that and that for a sort of became the lightning rod of. If we pretend these things don't happen. It's going to continue to happen. We hit a kid who graduated at the top of his high school class excelled, academically was a great athlete. He loved theater and was involved in his high school theater program constantly he held a job. He was absolutely physically beautiful. He'd had great medical care dental care orthodontia or all those things and yet he's still died of an opioid overdose. And we like to think that, you know, we have a city it's not really a city, but as much of a city as you get in Vermont, we have a city in Vermont named Rutland, and we like in Vermont to think that Rutland because it's a poor city and has more racial diversity. We like to say, you know, Rutland has those issues the beautiful area surrounding. Middlebury college wouldn't have drug issues, and we did a new way we're going to come out. And we're going to say it, we're going to be truthful about how he died and hope that that helps other families not feel so well. What do you think? Drove Sam to drugs. I mean, he didn't have a depressing life. He didn't have abuse. He didn't have backed. I think I do believe now having done an awful lot of both reflecting on it. But also research on it. I think Sam, you know, we we actually can pinpoint the time in day when say picked up his first joint of marijuana in it was at a birthday party, and he smoked it and later he would tell us that when he smoked marijuana that his mood swings. The the high and low were much more level, and he wasn't seeing himself. You know, being really really hyperactive and hype in happy or really feeling down. That though then and I it we're seeing this all over the country. You know, then the the the group of friends smoking pot, then moved into well, we're going to smoke pot and we're going to drink. And then we're going to smoke pot and drink and look somebody just had their wisdom teeth out and they have vicodin, and we hear that if you mix it in with Botka, it's going to be a really good high, and we're going to have fun partying. And I think it, you know, from from both as they say, the research and talking to SAM's friends, I think it became a cycle of using more and more. Enjoying the feeling he got when he was using. In search of the perfect tie. Absolutely. Given that are you saying or you believe that marijuana is a gateway drug it's start there too slippery slope. No, I've not what I am saying in, you know, one of my graduate degrees is in counseling. Which I got long before this happened. There is now some interesting research coming forward that for young preadolescent and adolescent males who has the beginning signs of mental illness. That using marijuana. Regularly. They have a much higher incident of moving into heavier drug use. And also that the mental illness shows itself more severely and earlier than young males who don't use marijuana. And you know, we've looked at studies coming out of places like Colorado about that. I don't know if this is actually what happened with Sam or not. But some of the studies are showing that connection. This must make mother's day. Very hard for you. It's an awful day. And that's we have three living incredible children. And it's not that. I don't love celebrating being all four of our children's mother. But it is a whole that. It just. Stares you in the face every moment of mother's day. And you're listening to conversation here on ninety four WIP sports radio. My name's Peterson. I'm in my guest this morning. Chris ring core author of grief, garlic and gratitude. Recurring returning to hope and enjoy the whole all kinds of good stuff from a shattered life. Sam fluff story. My name's Peter salary. Chris what is simply have to say about all of this. What his siblings say is that we look they look at at life through the eyes of the good parts of doing a Sam. They when I wrote the book, it was with their incredible amazing unwavering support with their, you know, them looking at parts that talked about them making sure they were okay with me sharing those pieces with the world, and they have we always knew we had amazing kids their strength, their grace their openness their love is just plain on Spiring. They are amazing young men and women. Oh, that's probably very true. But at the same time, you worry. Oh, absolutely. Absolutely. Our youngest just finished actually yesterday finished his junior year at university of Mont and all of us one of the pieces that came out of Sam death is that we all are hyper vigilant about the safety and wellbeing of the rest of us in the family, and you know, our youngest just turned twenty one. And he he is so good natured about knowing that I need him to text me. You know, if he's driving last night he was driving to a friend's house. I need to know when he gets there because until that happens, I worry, and we were my husband, and I worry about them all the time. We we worry about what this loss has done to them emotionally. And but we get through it through a lot of really blunt open. Conversations. Never though a mother daddy. Please. What what do you poke it in my life for? Once in a while, we get the I got this. I got this. Mom. I got this dad. It's okay. And when we're learning to accept that. Now, we have grandchildren to worry about too. So you know, they now get some of that word. That's got to be hard.

"sam steph" Discussed on American Hysteria
"To the test at hunter, killer dot com slash hysteria. That's hunter killer dot com slash hysteria. What that brings me to is. This other interpretation that I brought into the episode that I know I think it was Carly you said that you have some questions about or your own sort of challenges to which is that idea that Bill Ellis, the folklorist came up with that this this hook handed killer is actually a moral custodian or basically an authority figure that seeks to invade the private world of the teenager for their own whatever strange reasons, they have for doing that. So Carly what is your response to that? Yeah. So I. I'm like very interested in the idea that you could kind of interpret this story as like a pro sex or like a sex positive story where like 'cause lss kind of saying like actually the hook man is like a a kind of negative or I think he'd like abnormal drive to interrupt normal teenage behavior. And so like in that sense than what the kids are doing necking in the woods alone is like Darnell and fine, and there's sort of this terrifying. Interruption to it, which is which Ellis's conflicting with the idea of like adults trying to prevent kids from doing what they're gonna do. Anyway. Which like, I really I really loved the idea that this is actually a story not about adult things -iety about kids having sex, but about kids things -iety about adults preventing them from having sex like that's just delightful. I think but I also like Jono if I. Fully by that read like when I start to like dig into it sort of falls apart from me in a way because what happens. Win the hook man is prevented. Right is positive. Right. Like, there's the the hook man comes in. And. And tries to disrupt in it's it's a terrifying. Right. He's he's a source of fear. But like what comes out of avoiding the hook man is a happy ending. I think it's a question of who's telling the story like where does the circulation of that story? Come from is this kid's telling the story about their anxieties. Or is it adults telling it about their anxieties? And I think we tend to assume that it's alz which the like, the dear Abby, thanks ample that you read in the show that suggests to me that that's probably an adult circulating that. I don't know. But it also like a lot of what these stories do is is reinforce cultural control. Right. Like, that's the whole purpose of a cautionary tale is to say like do what the majority of us think is right. Like don't don't stray from the path. And we talk a lot about this on the show that there are plenty of stories where like the quote unquote, moral of it is like stick to the status quo like stick to what most people think is is more. Or correct. And I feel like if you read the story as a cautionary tale. It is very much a story about not a story about anxiety about not doing these things, you know, that teen sexist bad and to be happy and survive you have to not do those things. And so that that else's interpretation kind of. Feels Illich in conflict with that reading of it to me. And then I know Rachel you were mentioning another reading of it. That's a little bit more of a little bit. Let's say shall we? Always. You wants definitely of the Freudian variety. Tell me tell you. Well, there's this think it was a way Carly helped me say this do Ness siren. It's Allen Dundas Dundas island Dundas says that the hook is actually a phallic symbol. And it's this idea that the hook man is like he's missing an appendage. Right. And so he stops sex from happening because he can't also have sex because it's an appendage. And so I mean, I don't know that I buy that necessarily. But I do wonder though, I mean, this is kind of a weird left turn. But we're going so everybody hold on. You know, there's there's a lot of like, I don't know if you guys are into murders. And I. Trestle stuff. Unfortunately, I am. And I know a lot of murders have taken place on lovers lane like zodiac killers, murderers, some some of the son of Sam Steph was also done on lovers lane. There was somebody in Tex arcana that that did a lot of lovers lane the moonlight. Yeah. So I think that there's like I think that the phallic symbol is very, correct. If you look at the actual perpetration can't say that word, but the actual perpetrators of these crimes, right? There was some sort of sexual component that they couldn't quite. It wasn't actually you know, they weren't able to do something sexually. So they took it out on these kids in these lover lane lovers lanes. And I think that happens with at least, I only know the zodiac killer in the son of Sam pressure. I think that that was one of the big reasons why they did it and I wonder too how that rolls back into the the actual contemporary legend right like having having an actual murder on a lovers lane. Like, how does that feedback into this sort of anxiety of sex, and and love and changed love and young love? And and how that's not reliable in. I I don't know. I mean, I'm more postulating the question than answering yours Chelsea. So I'm sorry. But well, actually, no. I mean, I'm really glad you brought that up because it was really hard for me to not include that part in the in the actual episode just because it would have been a whole like you said, it's kind of a left turn like I'm such a true crime person that I want. To talk about Texarkana in the forties, which was. What you and saying I will never know the motivations of that. Because that person was never caught a zodiac was ever caught. But son of Sam we very much know that his motivation was basically the the interpretation of the. The person who like you said the almost like the castrated male or whatever of Freudian of marine conversation who goes to kill these young people that he feels are engaging in what has not been given to him. You know, he was very much a red pill. You know, men's rights activist of of that time, but I will say that son of Sam came long after the legend had already begun. And so that's where I think those stories, and I think we talk about it this in in American hysteria. Where these these things happen these perfect crimes that encapsulate a moment in history and encapsulate, the Zayed's of the over culture. Right. And I think that that's a good example, though, even though maybe it didn't cause the legend it allowed the legend to continue to to sort of snowball into holding different meanings. Right. And. So I don't think a legend is is is fixed in time. Right. And so these things are going to influence its transformation when there's something in the in the water so to speak, right? Like something in the cultural moment it expresses itself in lots of different ways to lick it might express itself in an imaginary narrative or in a work of art, but it's also gonna like express itself in people's actions. And so like the idea that the like I'm always sort of skeptical of the idea that like there has to be a factual basis for a narrative right for for a legend or for a fairytale people are really quick to like national treasure things where they're like. Yeah. This is based on something that actually happened. And like sometimes that's true. But also, I think sometimes it's just like these are just this is a real and a and a narrative expression, they sort of pranced off in different ways that like someone in the in the. Forty s would. Be reacting to the same kind of cultural forces that you're talking about in the episode of like, you know, cars are available. The idea the teenager is is kind of coming to to preeminence that someone would see all of these things happening and see teenagers having increased sexual agency and respond to it with the same kind of anger that the story expresses seems very natural to me like that makes a lot of sense as a cut of horrific literal outcropping of the same kinds of cultural concerns that the narratives express, and I think to the the way that the hook man is sort of. Given to us. Right. The way that it's told to us is is that even though the woman is fright. She should be afraid. And I think that is something that we see through almost all the folklore. We look at right Carl. I kind of mentioned earlier that like it's the woman strapped to be safe. Which is why Carleen I tend to love the women that are just like here to kill because it's extremely refreshing. You know, like, they're not worried about their safety. They're gonna come get you. And there is something there that is so different from what we expect from women. And I think there's a lot of like, I know this isn't quite on the same level as the hook, man. But you know, the babysitter when the man upstairs that was based on a real case a woman, I think in March of nineteen fifty she she was killed and nobody she's thirteen years old. She wasn't even when she's a little girl. Martine nineteen fifty and she was killed, and then this sort of like rumor connected to that. And she did call the police. They couldn't trace it because it was prior to that technology, but there's so much there that like she's responsible for her safety. She needs to figure out how she can get help. And I think there's a there's this underlying sort of sexist feel in general about these stories about how women need to act, and we we currently I talk on that a lot and how problematic that is. But also it does serve to keep us safe. So in the case the hook man, you know, the woman is safe. So it's a sort of problematic, or I guess simply problematic symbiotic relationship, right where you're still thinking about your safety, but you're recognizing that that's problematic. And I think the hook man is a very good example of that. And then the babysitter. And the man upstairs is another good example about I mean, there's also other anxieties that we clear. Early have right. Like you were saying in the car having this technology to get away from the parent. But I think too in the babysitter. It's the technology of the phone and how it can't save you, right? And like there's some sort of anxiety there about we're moving too fast things are happening too quickly. And it's not helping us, you know. So well, I'm throwing it back really quick to satanic panel also to women leaving and leaving children in the hands of others. True. Yeah. Which is again, another form of social control. Right. Love it. Yeah. I think what you all said about about social control and about the reinforcing of social norms is so much what I have discovered about our about our country, and of course, every country every human nature through doing American hysteria. Is that so much of the stories we tell and the symbols that we that we inherited pass on have to do with the dominant. Culture's ideas of what you know, our social norms, and what those social norms need to be. And I. I think the biggest thing is as our world changes. We need to continuously recognize that the stories we tell have to do with our social norms, if I can say too, I think one of the things that folklore is really about is saying, okay. What is the what is the use of this? Right. How does Tannock panic or how does a story about rainbow party is like how does that control people? But also as like, an expressive, art form. How does it give voice to those things because it is? I mean, it does have the social utility. But it also like if you look at those tenant panicked stories as like an expression of a cultural moment there kind of beautiful and incredible in weird. And like you couldn't make a movie that was weirder than that. You know, you couldn't invent something women stranger. And so I think we do something like in looking at what the use is of things we should also be looking at like, how do they help us articulate our anxieties about our cultural moment beautiful way to end. I love that as absolutely perfect. So please everyone listening goal isn't a feminist folk. Floor. He will not be disappointed. These two will make you laugh and make you think, and I know I love listening. So thank you both for talking to me. This has been really fun. Thanks so much Chelsea by. From skylark.
