And i've turned it into a show. We're reduced for us. Recycle in this house one hundred percent pretty much. All junk mail gets reused as some sort of list not pretty cycling. So does i do listen. I have the original. I kept it the first week. Maybe second hand democ endemic where we started writing menus on envelopes. We did we started making menus together. And we're like okay hapless garlic but we should have made a pandemic scrapbook. I didn't we thinking and we didn't think it was going to last this long. Let's be real. We really didn't. We had more faith in humanity. Well it's okay. it's it's We're getting there the Yeah no. I think there's a lot of here's the deal. We walter mitty for sure we. Yeah we have a lot. we we really enjoyed. We enjoyed those times together so it was good. Good walter mitty twelve would recommend. Yeah great green them. Indeed sammy I wanna close with With some some things. We learned about ourselves from hellofresh. You know. i've talked about this by the way if you want. I got a whole bunch of new coupons and always have coupons if it's if you're new to the program you haven't tried hellofresh like Hellofresh may be responsible for most of the great times and sammy. And i have had together over the last two years. Maybe three that we've been doing it. send me an email. Track me i'll give you get your code. We'll get you some free hellofresh to give it. Give it a try. It has been at has been super cool but as you think about things you've gotten better at what it through just cooking together and it doesn't i mean we've done a lot of different things are a lot of it's been hellofresh but what kind of lessons after the last you know. We've been doing this for a year and a half hour as far as cooking together. We've cooked a lot together. Anything anything you take away from that you take away from that time you do differently now than you might have done before or some tips tricks that you've learned. Yeah my cooking. Skills were pretty bare bones before hellofresh and so i have picked up a lot of things i had never like i never confidently cooked meat ever because i was terrified of poisoning. My whole family talking about this in an episode before but one now i know all the temperatures to cook meat to just like off the top my head poultry sixty five That's the most important one. How how great is that. We bought that new incense thermometer which is amazing and also. I've used that for other stuff. So that's super helpful. I in a lot more confident and quake in my shopping skills. I am truly the master of potatoes not to pat myself on the back too much. But i truly know how to cook potato especially i make being garlic mash. Data's always raving about it. It's so good it's really good. We should have put garlic in the mashed potatoes tonight. And i thought about it. But like but i i thought of it to to league but i also have grown in appreciation for more vegetables because they used to be very picky about vegetables because mostly would steam them but i found out that roasting vegetables makes them tastes so much better. Put your veggies in the oven with seasoning. Legis like put salt pepper. Maybe ginger maybe some garlic navy some lemon zest. We zest are citrus. A lot more that we disaster platters esther too because we were using the micro plane. And you know. I've scraped my knuckles on a micro plane with one too many times. We have one where it's it's more like a peeler like a mini peeler. That's great love that we have sony more kitchen gadgets. Now dad's very much a right tool for the job kind of person. So we've gotten a lot more gadgets. That make things easier. Some good knives. Like i think that's not me right. Well that's because we've that's because we've used them so much right just a big chef's knife that i used for chopping every vegetable under the sun. I showed this when. I came back from boston last year. Ed a hang out with that sullivan last year. And he turned me onto this semester. And i talked about it last year but it years. Investing game changes with this tool easier. And you're not gonna scrape your knuckles right. Yeah it it. basically you know. It's got five holes along the top and pulled down the sign zest you can. You can do it a couple times for that right and side for if you want a big peel for a garnish Yeah we gotta so. There's there's disaster angle you get a good look at it. And then there's your if you wanna if you wanna garnish. It's got a kind of a cutter on the on the inside of it that you have myself with the vegetable peeler trying to get twist cocktail you have indeed you really scarring my finger to prove that. No more will be using a vegetable peeler to get twists for. Yeah that's zest tool. And i think eleven box like not very expensive and listen zest as one of those things that it's just super underrated and so fancy and it makes such a difference with lebanon's yeah to tonight so we were flavor. We were making a ginger sauce tonight. So ginger chicken stock Some plum jam Eventually some butter would go on that some water. Some you know some that. That kind. In i i we the other thing the other thing i recommend one saying this. Is you know you watch this cooking shows and they have all those little balls. Go buy some little bowls like you. Get to put a little gross. They're not very expensive. You don't have to like just have a st and we have a kind of. Sarah started this so she gets to credit for but we have some big goals and then medium and small. And they're just they're within reach so you can just grab what you need and if your existing is zest with that with that tool and i take a knife out and chop up that zest to get into small little pieces. You don't have to like you. Can you can leave it in long strips. If you want to you know it it's it'd be just fine that way and And so then you you right off the cooking or off the the cutter the what we call those things where you cut the cutting board. Now what's cutting cutting board. You you just straight in the right in their gosh. It's you know. I've i've heard some jokes. I think an forget. Who which comedian was i think it was jim gaffe again. Maybe he's like yeah. I'd cook great to if all everything was prepared for me. Well one of the things you kind of get taught with hellofresh prepping all the stuff in advance so prep it have it ready and then when the cooking comes just dumping stuff in things in things you have to prep also small. Cutting boards underrated without a rim for scraping things directly into bowls. Yeah cutting cutting time yeah. We coding ginger right. Yeah we have a we have. It's basically a slap job but it's like not this laptop brand but that thing once you've chopped all the and it's like really fine. You don't let that get caught in each group so you just do that on the small cutting board than you. Just scrape it directly into the buller. The pan yeah. yeah in. These aren't like you know they're they're talking about feel like his wife still wants an air fryer and in anderson's he doesn't have space on it we don't we don't have an air airframe rather in fact Kids came over last night last night.

"So you've got to begin a baking those out. It sounds like you've got a lot of post tax investments right now but still it looks like that's that's looks like that around forty k which is about one third one fourth of what you got in the in the 401k And so yeah. I think i think it's time to start thinking about. How do i. how do i deploy my cash. And in general begin really boosting after-tax immediately accessible net worth that. I can spend in order to achieve my goal because i think it's better the one hundred sixty student loan debt. We've for her that story. You're in really good situation to to have a good too good a fighting chance at this in the next Five six years four or five years. Yeah i wanna talk about two roth. Ira balance now. It's a sub ten thousand dollars which is still. It's great that you have any money in there. I'm not sure you're ever going to reach with you. Don't wanna work five thousand hours a week. You might not reach the cutoff for contributions to the roth. Ira but i just really love a roth. Ira for younger people. Because it has so long to grow you pay taxes when you pull it put it in. You don't pay any taxes when you pull it out and with you know. Twenty or thirty years of growth time you could have an enormous balance in that roth. Ira that could fund until you need to start taking out from the 401k. So i would like to see more contributions in their. If you've got money lying about you know you're waiting to put it in there somewhere we're waiting to deploy it someplace. I like the roth. Ira bear. Do you have any match with your company yes. I have four percent match. Oh nice okay well are you maxing out your 401k every year. Yes okay perfect. Let's see i had one other question. Oh back to the promotion. Tupee a lead. Then isn't what you want long-term but i would be interested to see what that pays versus what you're making now because that could be a significant jump for an extra four hours of paperwork that might help propel you down the path towards financial independence. A lot faster or help you get to the down payment for your first rental property or your second until property.

"Know murdered. Yeah right now like the the epidemic of violence off the trans Community forged trans women color and black Trans women specifically, I think that like, I mean for me like white privilege goes a long white away towards my safety, you know, I mean like we've had we've had I feel bad that I don't have the exact number off the top of my head but we've had about 20 trans women of color killed in this country this year alone. So it's it really is just it's it's an epidemic of birth. Violence. It doesn't make any sense to me. Like you know it like whatever whatever side of the fucking thing on like its it doesn't make any sense to me that just to like take someone's life just because you don't agree with with the way that they have chosen to to live their life and not even chosen is is just just saying just the way that they are. Yeah. I mean, I just guess what it is and you know home like at some point like people kind of have to deal with themselves, but also like get rid of that get rid of that old-ass mind frame like that that should it's just it's unnecessary. And I mean, it's it's totally totally unplugging necessary. You know, yeah, I was I was I was thinking the other day that like, you know and and and maybe this and maybe this is more, you know on my side and and and being on being a comedian but like, you know, sometimes I feel that like we should that we should protest the hood, you know what I'm saying? Just just to just to say that black Trans lines matter or off of thing cuz like that's it's really it's really where it's coming from. Yeah. I mean it's you know, it's it's it's all over but like for the most part like I I see how about people in the streets look at the people. I'm just like issuing fucking necessary bro, you know, and that's that needs to be really addressed more so, you know and in the hood and it's like, you know, yeah, it's crazy so crazy.

Wow, so they came out to your psyche my dad he they were both confused of my dad, you know, and it's I mean like my dad lost a son like I get that freaking. Yeah, I understand that like, you know, I mean it took them a while to understand like he gained a daughter but it's he I think he struggled until like it really dawned on him that like, oh this is what my kid needs to do to be. Okay, and since it like, I mean honestly I I I It's hard for me to think of a bigger supporter in my life currently on my Dad. That's great. You know, I mean like we we definitely really get on each others nerves but you know, yeah. Yeah, I mean they were they were confused and and you know, they probably still are confused but they don't let that affect our our you know, the parent-child relationship. Yeah, see that that's cool because you know, not not many people have that that much of a of a strong parental unit where like they're they're okay with it even even and and their confusion at least, you know, they they accept it like it's it's really hard for people to you know to have this kind of parents because like you know, what were your parents like, this is the thing like we we I grew up going to church. I we still go to church. I've been to I've been to I've been to zoom Church off but it's like I I grew up. Yeah, you know going to a Lutheran Church, you know, I have a Christian background, but I'm so lucky. The regard that like the Christianity I grown up in and Vin raised in like I I was afraid of the reaction to me being trans simply because I didn't know other people so it's like this was such a a a new Uncharted Territory home, but like growing up. I mean like I had some day of school taught by a lesbian couple like I mean like I you know, it was you know, I've grown up in like a racially diverse Church in you know, in you know surrounded by gay people my whole life so like that. Yeah, like we we were religious wage but like it was the kind of religious that was safe for me and I'm so like I feel very just lucky and privileged in that range. Art because like I mean, I know I know people I know ex Mormons, you know, no. I know people who can't go home again. It's it's so I mean, yeah. Yeah. So the one thing that some of the things that I've seen them since we've been friends on Facebook, which I don't know necessarily. Remember remember how we came from the Facebook but you know, it doesn't really matter but like I see a lot of your posts and it seems that you know, yeah, but you you know who you are and and in a support that you have from other people and the fact that you are you are here now, so yeah. Yeah. I mean, I'm I'm lucky to be here. Like I I I'm grateful for life like every every day like, I really am like, I mean like I don't know I'm a chronically ill person sometimes that sucks. You know, I mean, I've I've been through some shit in my life. I but like I've I've survived so much crap that like, oh no God damn just like okay. Let's see here. Here we go. Yo keep going one of the things that I see that that you're doing is is that your security comedy shows but with with trans folks, And what what one guy he does and do that, you know, they were so many. I just I knew all these amazing Grands Comedians and musicians who just weren't getting the recognition and the bookings that you know, they deserve and well, I'll book you say that that's cool. I get your right like you don't really see much at all, you know, or or or if any, you know, especially on especially on regular, you know what I mean? I mean, like honestly like Yeah, but like queer and trans comedians really are some of the best comedians working today. I mean it's like yeah, I mean, you know just like I mean there are multiple companies with but like I mean, it just boggles my mind, but it's like oh, oh, you're not going to book a violet gray or you know Christian new or like, you know, like by choice, you know Gina Bloom these These are these are freaking murderous say you're finding is I've been I've been talking the last couple that happens often too and in his interviews and we were talking about it on page on the end of of being a black comic where like most most Comedy Club, you know, Club Bookers and owners, you know you You kind of gotta be like the best one out there for four people to see you. But but and and in that case like you still don't get many people that are willing to actually put put you out there like you you really gotta show yourself, which I'm like it kind of sucks because like there are people who are like completely mediocre that get on. Yeah, and they don't have to fucking work to do but we're still in the place where it's like shit, you know, like so many Comedy Club lineups like their their lineups for the year. It's like a bunch of straight white dudes off like one black guy and go end-over-end. You know and like maybe maybe like one gay guy is is the the yeah, you know, that's the LGBT represent.

I like I just can't stop my my brain from thinking about things that are funny, you know, or or at least funding to me. It's like I'm like like tell people about you know that we have once you once you like do it the first time you get to laugh and then keep on doing to keep on doing it off. Like fuck like you walk out into the world. You see two things like, oh my God, one of these things are really far funny. I have talked to people about this to see if they can get the air, you know, so when you came out who was the first people that came out to was my sister and that was okay, you know, that was literally on my birthday month. I called her or she called me cuz you know, she she called me like she always calls me on my birthday. She called me. I'm like, oh, hey, I need to tell you something. Yeah, so I came out to her. Yeah, and then I started going to a local Pride Center figure myself out there. I think they came out to other members of my family and then I just came out and then I came out public and started doing stand-up again. So you went to the local to local price and that's I kind of have to kind of, you know, figure out who you are and stuff. So, how how is that how how long did it take you to to kind of figure out that I mean like something was going on gender-wise. That's kind of how I came out to my sister one meeting. Yeah that one like trans meeting kind of just saying, I don't know if this is what I am and then like the next month. I was at that meeting but like yeah. Yeah. No, I definitely am I'm I'm I'm quite sure that that you're around a bunch of other people that I were there to like. Did it did it. Did it make you didn't make it easier for you since you're around so many other people off. Don't know the story, you know, because like at that point like everyone everyone was significantly older than me. So it's like, you know, like it was made me feel like okay, I'm not alone but it didn't I didn't it took me a while to find other people in the same boat as me who I related to God, but but yeah, yeah, you know, it's since then I've I've built this this real like queer and trans family that's cool like that to kind of have people that you can you know be good be friends and talk to you anytime you need to when you have these problems. Yeah. So so along we talked about a little bit before but like, you know about alcoholism purging of blood during during the Depression those depression stages throughout your life like before the alcohol kind of came out on me yourself as well like dead. There was definitely a self harm like aspect to my diffraction. We're like, I I never I never cut and but like there would be times for life. I did a lot of like hitting I did a lot of like slapping myself in the face a lot you pushed and I mean and I definitely literally like a week before I came out to my sister. I had you know, you know the like legit attempt of of my life. You know and it's and I have I have this joke in my it's I it's a little exaggerated in like the story. I tell on stage but my boss basically the story is that you know, I was deeply depressed and I made the decision. I'm going to jump in front of a train.

I didn't have any understanding of being attracted to anyone but women when we really just like you can come out his game. Like I said, that's great that you're that's great that you're telling me that but yeah. Yeah. Oh wow, man. So so in these in these depression fits, you know wage. Well, you know, they're like outside of outside of being angry. Um, what what other things would you do to kind of express your life slept so much money. It's just like I would just like I would sleep or not sleep and I would eat or not eat, you know, like I would either eat everything in sight or or I wouldn't eat like it was I it was I was just such a creature of extremes. You know and I mean and it was mostly she just just like numb I think was really the most of you know, how my depression manifested in a normal like as a as a kid. I definitely did a lot of crying as an adult. I was just like, oh no, I I was just numb so like so as you age as you ease your way out of out of high school Community College and got a I got a psych degree from there that I've done nothing with and I went I actually did a certification program for vet assistant. Yeah. I used to be a vet assistant which like being like a veterinarian was always like like a dream that was like the goal job of mine. And then I did that assisting classes. I did really good in that program and off after after I left that didn't find work at the you know places near me, you know became a dog walker and that was kind of what what I was doing really up until like the last You know like up until like two years ago. I I was just working as a dog water most of my adult life. Yeah, so so as you're as you're going as you go on a college is this is just depression and and rage still there because it cuz you still haven't yeah, you are definitely and and it's really funny if there was an experience. There was a trans girl at my Community College who felt like I had at one point. I don't even remember the specifics but like, you know, she was having some conversation about trans people me at life nineteen.

"They were both they I mean at least when it came to you know, anything that like I got in trouble for in school. They were on my side to a point and like I grew up with fish very supportive parents of like anything. I wanted to you know, anything I was interested in live her life do that. But you know, it wasn't it wasn't I didn't have like the parents who were just like, yeah and you're going to be the best drummer ever, you know, like yeah, I mean you you still want you need to work at that. I'm not going to waste your money on on whatever this is. So so like as you're as you're getting older and then it off high school that go Cuz you know we all know High School is a fucking shit. I mean by high school, I would just I kind of purposely off like kind of skirted all like clicks and like oops I wasn't I wasn't like a complete loner but it was like, yeah, I had I had like a few friends and I didn't have anything to do with anyone else like like people I think most people knew who I was but I didn't get in anyone's way and I didn't like, you know go out of my way to be friends with with a lot of people people, you know, and I mean like high school was was Peak Depression. That was like Peak, you know, okay. I know I know I'm probably one one of these, you know trans women that I or what whatever they were called at that point in like a bath Thousand five like, you know, whenever I was in high school, I graduated in 07. Oh, okay, you know when it was like, oh, I just that was just peek confusion and depression just not knowing who you are and and and then not having like an outlet for it off. So so before I can probably get back to that gets gets let's jump into it. So how what age did you probably realize that that you were different jobs and and you know trans or possibly. Yeah, so I I had some idea that something was going on like as early as 5 but I I you know, and I mean every trans persons different like there's no rule that like, oh you need to know what this age to, you know be a real trans person, you know, it's I mean, there are definitely people My age now it's just hitting them, you know, and that's valid as hell but I I knew something was going on really young but I didn't have any words for it. And then I would say probably fifteen was when I was just like oh, oh I am I am but yeah. Wow, you know, I didn't that wasn't something that at that age. I felt comfortable talking about that was when like I would I started going like deep in the closet. I went like Dodge Jeep image as like Macho like I'm like, yeah. Yeah. So so as five fifteen like wage, what what was that thing that like that's brought you to be like, oh wait. Yeah. This is this is what I am like what what were the events that that that that it was any like wage? Specific event as much as just having some you know, you know being confused since like five like a five years. It's just ten years of confusion and just oh, yeah. No. No, it's oh this is not going away. Okay, let me make it go away. Yeah, what does that mean? What does that feeling? Like? What is that feeling like because you know, I mean like as as we grow up like we we all feel different and and and some type of way that that we can't fully explain it, you know home, so like whether whether it'd just be like you're just insanely smart person and everyone else around you is it's pretty fucking dumb like get to know as a kid and like, all right, you're you know way different than the rest because you'll always, you know, have you have your hands in the air and doing whatever and you can get it as quickly, you know, but for you like Being young and had to like kind of kind of slowly get to where where I mean, I think for me it started as a judge just complete confusion and not complete lack of understanding of gender whatsoever or like yeah. Okay. Yeah, that's but why it's like, you know, like all of these things have just I didn't understand these like gender differences that you know, I mean, I talked to some extent are you no bulshit anyway, but that everyone else is just seem to get I mean like yeah, I guess I guess I'm a boy cuz everyone's saying that to me, I don't know them anything right now. Yeah. Yeah, I but then I I think It was just in high school. It was just deep anger was was how I experienced. My gender dysphoria was just anger off at like what like all directed inward. It was just like why why are you like this why so like you would just you just on on yourself more than more than anywhere else when it was because you know at that time I didn't know, you know there there were starting to be like news stories about trans people but it was all like trans kids. So I was like, huh? Well, I didn't say anything at 5. So I guess I'm stuck. It's like I didn't it didn't look like it was like I didn't know of anyone who like wasn't one of these trans kids.

Yeah, it's it's based in Texas. But you know, like there's so many comedy festivals that are much easier to be part of now cuz everything virtual. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, that seems to be the way it goes. Like hey now that reversible now we can accept more people. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, that's cool though dead. That's really awesome. Well, what time is it? What time is the best of them? It's not it's 10 p.m. Okay, would you like I usually normally like I've tried not to do any stand up too late night, but that's still cool though. You know, you know, that's really awesome. So have you been dealing with the with the pandemic off? I I've I've been all right. I mean it definitely it's definitely been a little bit of a struggle or you know, at least at first definition got my anxiety going. I'm on an antidepressant now I wasn't before this. All right, I mean, you know, it seems to be that like since since this has forced us to being inside and be in cyber ourselves that happens to be a thing. Yeah, you know a hell of a lot, you know dead. You don't you don't really get the chance. I mean, you know at the at the beginning didn't really get a chance to really go outside. So it was like, oh my God, I also has going to kill you, you know, and then after a while I was like, well you can go as I just be careful. Yeah. Yeah turns out it's the inside that'll kill you. But it seems like you know, I've been I've been traveling around since like it's just the beginning but probably towards what's more the middle, you know going to different different states and like they seem to have everything on a on a on a I know they seem to have everything. All right where they know what they're doing as far as like outside inside seating and stuff like that. So I think that's I think we are on the come-up of things being a little bit easier to try to like navigate ourselves through this whole thing. Yeah off, you know, so that's cool. How long you been doing comedy for? Yes, so and that's that question is is always so hot dog Weird for me to answer cuz like I guess I've been doing stand-up for about eight years okay months but you know, so I'm trans and before I came out I had done stand up for two years and then left for a year off. So it's like depending on you know, like how how you want that answer. It's it's either eight years or a.

"And thoughts and acts of self-harm and Sammy is no strange too that at home. And I admit you know, I have to admit to have to get myself that you know, I am confused also, but that confusion doesn't cloud my judgement of people and who they are and how they should be treated. I think that's one of the main things that's getting in the way of real progress. Is that realizing that like no one should just be treated differently just because they feel a certain way and I mean that just shouldn't be, you know, we can we can leave Jokes Aside because jokes feel a certain space in Maine and they have to be done right to feel our service is but just on edge on being a person being being on a human level, you know, no one should be made to feel like they don't belong, you know what I mean? And there needs to be like, you know, a dialogue between everyone just to figure it out. I think that's what you know, the think that's helps people a lot more is really having that straight up and honest dialogue. You know and you know, the funny thing is there's there's another script that I've been working on for a while and thinking about a lot for like one of the episodes and for the other show and mostly because my friend, you know, Jay McBride but like the stories that I see in the world and some of my own views I had an idea for one of my characters. I came to the rescue of a trans person that was being bullied and even though he came to the rescue. He was still quite ignorant himself, but mm they topped And chilled all night and he got he got to have like a deeper meaning of what it is like to be trapped, you know, and I think it's the same for me with this interview as well. In the salmon gave me a deeper understanding of things that have some things that I already know but probably just needed more insight on it. So I hope you enjoy the check.

"Dissolve one packet of Lemon Jello in one can or one cubes worth of Beef Bouillon. Add lemon juice and allowed to cool. Add three hard boiled eggs diced. One Cup diced celery. Half an onion grated one cup miracle whip and one can of corn beef chopped chill until set slice and serve congratulations. You've just made corned beef luncheon salad. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Use It up where it out make it do were do without my grandmother would say. I thought that was clever saying from her side of the family but it was actually a slogan from World War Two encouraging the public to use fewer resources so more could be diverted to the war effort. We're all getting a taste of that as we're hunker down unable to shop at the spur of the moment and much more limited in our choices when we do thankfully we do have precedent to fall back on after all people are still alive today it through the Great Depression children. The roaring twenties came to an abrupt stop with the Stock Market Crash of Nineteen Twenty nine which saw billions of dollars evaporated into thin air. The crash wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression. There were things like the dust bowl wherein incorrect farming methods turned the fertile American planes into a desert but the crash did act to accelerate the global economic collapse by nineteen thirty three. Nearly half of America's banks failed and thirty percent of the workforce was unemployed. You had to make the most of what you had and you had to get good at that fast to women. Help struggling homemakers to be able to feed their families. Eleanor Roosevelt an aunt. Sammy beginning in nineteen twenty. Six and Sammy had a popular weekday. Radio show called housekeepers chat about cooking and other domestic concerns as well as chitchatting about whatever else was going on at the time and Sammy was very popular especially in rural areas. Thousands of people wrote into her for recipes by nineteen thirty to one hundred and ninety four stations broadcast aunt. Sammy show and she published aunt. Sammy's radio recipes. Parenthetically the Great Depression Cookbook. It would be the first cookbook published in Braille. Interestingly enough though I struggle to think of how difficult it would be to cook on wood or old timey gas stove without good eyesight on Sammy's recipes. Were meant to be simple healthy and easy to cook. She's even credited with helping Broccoli. Find widespread acceptance prior to which it was only found in insular Italian neighborhoods and Sammie helped many wives and mothers through the Great Depression but once that was over then country was back on its feet. People lost interest. The show was cancelled sometime in the nineteen forties. Though sources don't agree when exactly. There's one other fact about aunt Sammy. That's worth mentioning. She didn't exist in the latter half of the twentieth. The Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics created a wife for uncle. Sam The on creatively named Aunt Sammy. The character was voiced by different women at each individual radio station that way the listener would hear an accent similar to their own and feel more connected to aunt Sammy. Three women worked behind the scenes at the USDA to prepare the script each week that all the regional aunt. Sammy's would use fanny Walker. Contested Recipes Josephine. Harmful wrote the chatty portions of the show and Ruth Fan demine coordinated all of the Menus and recipes. The other woman who guided homemakers through was the very real first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt. When Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House in Nineteen thirty three? A record number of people were hungry but being president is not without its perks and the first family eight well even extravagantly while people stood inbred lines. Eleanor Roosevelt. Who didn't know how to cook realized that the way she and the president ate in the White House had the potential to influence and even help the nation through the depression. She hired an acquaintance. Henrietta Nesbitt whose husband was out of work to be the new White House housekeeper housekeeper at that time more like how we use the term homemaker today and not as we use a euphemism for cleaning lady. Nesbitt and Roosevelt retooled the entire kitchen installing modern appliances and coaxing the skeptical White House staff to use them. This was the first kitchen in America and it wasn't even sanitary recalled. Nesbitt in her memoir. Meanwhile Eleanor turn to home economists for menus that would balance nutrition and economy the healthiest recipes in the world wouldn't help people if they couldn't afford the ingredients what's more she resolved to serve these humble dishes in the White House. Her efforts were covered by national newspapers and followed closely by housewives. There was a catch. These nutritious economic meals were awful. The first kitchen was turning out some of the most unpalatable meals in modern memory. The president himself was usually the test subject for these new dishes and he obligingly choked them down. Things like deviled eggs with tomato sauce and prune pudding in place of lavish dishes. The White House table was the stage for things like Spaghetti with boiled carrots. Cold jellied billion and bread and butter sandwiches served so much mutton that being grown sheep which is cheaper than lamb. Because it's much tougher that it became a joke throughout Washington. The first lady experimented with foods like milk corno a mix of dried milk powder and cornmeal developed by Cornell University milk. Porno could be eaten as a gruel like dish or worked into recipes. I was not brave enough to research. What those recipes might be. The bland meals became so notorious that visitors to the White House would eat before they went nutrition. Not Taste was paramount in the time of soup. Kitchens and bread lines and eleanor. Roosevelt was trying to use her table as a way of encouraging and inspiring other Americans to get through this uniquely challenging historical moment. It was just as well they got used to eating a limited range of food because FDR's presidency also included World War Two and the Roosevelt's eight rationed food just like everyone else Roosevelt's White House eight modestly in an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering. Jane's Eagle men. The CO author of a square meal told The New York Times. Here's a sampling of menu items. The first family and the public general might have enjoyed in massive bunny ears spaghetti with carrots and white sauce. The sauce was basically just milk. Meatless loaf made with peace oatmeal peanuts. Rice and or cottage cheese. Whatever you could get your hands on Mulligan's stew any animal. You could kill or find dead with whatever veggies you could manage or anything. That would keep hungry. They for a few hours without killing you like sawdust. It was reportedly created by the massive homeless population during the depression. Where people in homeless or migrant worker camps would pool their resources so that everyone could eat none of my sources mentioned where the name Mulligan might have come from. We do know the name origin of another STU. Hoover Stu Herbert Hoover had been elected just in time for the crash. But Unlike the Roosevelt's he continued to live the good life in the White House. Shantytowns BECAME HOOVER. Villes and the soup from soup. Kitchens became hoover stu the weirdest one of all and this report is opinion was peanut butter in baked. Onions was a whole onion hollowed out stuffed with peanut butter and baked. Just because we have two things on hand doesn't mean we should eat them at the same time as Eagle men succinctly put it. Peanut butter has nothing to say to a baked onion. Some recipes sound like they shouldn't work but surprisingly do like mock Apple Pie. Apples weren't readily available. But Americans weren't willing to give up their conic Apple Pie. The apples in mock apple pie were actually Ritz crackers and it worked. If you're not already familiar with Youtuber Emmy made in Japan. I'll link her hard time series in the show notes and on the website. She all kinds of dishes from times of deprivation including hot water pie grapefruit. Peel steak toast soup. And even the Haitian dirt cookies which you can hear more about in episode number ninety four. My name is mud while we can be grateful that recipes like ketchup soup and peanut butter and mayonnaise. Sandwiches are behind us. Some food created during the depression is still with us. Meatloaf is a comfort food classic and shaping food into loaves go to during the Great Depression. The same goes for casseroles which were a good way to use up odds and ends or to mask less palatable ingredients the depression also gave us the mother of all comfort. Food Kraft Macaroni and cheese or kraft dinner for my friends up. North in Nineteen thirty seven craft heard about a salesman from the tender Roni. Macaroni Company of Saint Louis. A Scottish emigrant aimed grant Leslie going rogue and selling his noodles with packets of greeted kraft cheese attached. They hired him to promote the concept and started selling it for nineteen cents for four servings.

"Were supposed to be keeping those politicians accountable to good. It's a good Good and worthy cause I think and not to be adversarial Israel but to be accountable. I think that's that's one of the first things that you learn in your journalism. Classes is the concept of journalists or the fourth estate. Were the fourth worth member of the checks and balances system between the the three branches of government. That we they keep each theoretically they keep each other accountable in the we keep all all of them accountable and like the entire system accountable by watching over in being watchdogs of the government. That's the will in no no system's perfect art and it has had varying success during different times and it still works sometimes yeah and and And so we've got I mean the the the you know we've got some work to do and it's I when you pick journalism six six years ago when it whatever that was when you started really writing for the school paper and you started move that direction I see I was Kinda I was kinda ignorant to all the stuff stuff that goes into journalism. You know and kind of going through this with you has really kind of taught me some things and has really kind of pulled me back even from some some of the things that I do podcasting because of the responsibility I kind of feel. Now of like micro waiting content. Am I being fair now. I don't let me ask you a question. I don't paint myself as a journalist. But because I'm doing this am I consider that or am I let off the hook because has I don't like I i. I don't when I home gadget. GEEKS is not a news show now it has some components of it. We talk about issues we talk. Ah You know we we we breaking news. We do those kinds of things I am. I still beholden to those same responsibilities or my let off the hook because I'm not technically a a journalist. I don't think you're technically journalist. But you're not off the hook so those are two those things are not those are not tied together when you have an audience you have a responsibility that audience and I think that everybody who has I I always use the example spheres of influence in the larger your sphere fear of influence the moral responsibility. You have to make sure that your force of good in that sphere of influence and so if you feel that doing the right thing is carrying more focusing more on the truth then you have responsibility that at in like that's that's the burden that you carry with your your voice your louder voice. He's well you'll have to. You'll have to those. Who are listening? We'll have to grade me. Send me an email Jim at the average Guy Dot TV. Let me know how I'm doing it does it is something I think about like. I've really taking you know I'm I think I'm like I'm GonNa stop or I pretty much have stopped taking review units of things. I just don't want to do that anymore. I don't want I don't want that that's to me. That's not an attractive thing to do on what I do here on. The podcast is to take those things as a review. I just don't I don't need any more stuff and I don't Wanna I don't WanNa do it that way. I also want it to be entertaining in a lot of ways. I want people to listen to this and get information information but I do want it to be entertaining so I don't know we've been doing this for four hundred twenty five shows People keep listening. So I'm assuming we're doing we're we're doing the right thing and And so we'll keep doing what we do. But you can if you haven't you got beef with me. You can send me Dawson for you. Could Jim at the advocate at TV Sammy as you think about you got your and a half to go. What's What's the dream? Yeah that's it's coming up pretty fast. We're more than halfway. What's what's the dream Upon graduation what would be best case scenario for you. Job Is. The dream is working for myself in some capacity. Whether it's writing or doing something more audio podcasting I wanna stay in the realm of journalism in truth in but I've always considered storytelling the most important thing to me and so as long as I'm telling people stories in a way that matters I'm okay with that. So wherever the wind takes me being podcast or fulltime would be super dope school job not that I'm biased. Because you're my dad and your professional gasser and I think it looks really fun But yeah that's that's the dream is just to keep telling stories and to not be beholden to something. That's telling me to do things that I don't want to do. Yeah I don't have the most the highest respect for authority. That's maybe one of my greatest flaws in so if authorities myself than Cool with that. That's me. I know I know it's actually no okay but but you say that. I think you're really respectful about it in a lot of ways. There's yeah yeah. I have respect for people as human beings. But I'M NOT GONNA I'm not gonNA treat people better than me if they have earned that. Yeah well. I think that's fair. I mean you've been you've surprised me in the in the last couple of years of being very reasonable And yet holding your ground like this is what I think and this is what I believe. But in these kinds of cases You would have enjoyed the conversation on the deck. Last night the the the boys were having the host thanks. They gave up the post. All you should have given up. I think a guy I think it got better Towards the end there but well. That's my three boys that were there. One is overseas the three that were there very very different in their opinions. Oh Yeah and Instead of three people who are related are more different from each other but Josh my middle he he He that was actually a pretty interesting conversation which he wouldn't say he he. He says exactly how he feels. So A good conversation. I just I have been. I continued to be surprised. At how far are you have been in a crazy new cycle over the last couple years. How you've kind of held together so so nicely Down if someone wanted to invite you to be on their podcast. Maybe they're hearing this and they're like ooh professional podcast guest.

Paul Brown is lined up the week after that Join Robinson's coming back to finish the show. He started but we derailed him. If you haven't heard that already that was last week big. Thanks to Duane for for being on the program last week in derailed them to talk about his job. He did have a bunch of gadgets to talk about so he's coming back as well off the week week of the thirtieth Gallup has a big learning series that we can J. Matson's come back to talk some hardware so we got some great shows ahead for. You haven't subscribed you. You can find us anywhere a home gadget disrobe ditch geeks were on everything. You can't miss us. I even have video. Do you know video s feet that's available for is if you want to subscribed to it and watch it and your player supports video you can get large and small download have ready and you don't have to use that crazy thing called youtube by the way I think Costano Youtube is GonNa start dropping non so people like a Gallup. We don't monetize so they make no money off of us. There's no ads that go some of the changes that have been going lately. I think. Make me think they're gonNA start dropping individuals who aren't in the advertising 'cause that's that's the way they make their money right. We're just get rid of the option of not advertising and just put ads on everybody stuff. Yeah I know I actually think I can start rob and if you if you don't want the paycheck then I guess they'll keep it around. They'll keep your three cents but you know three cents.

"sammie" Discussed on Home Gadget Geeks

"Are you seeing that out there. And is that possible all I am and I think there is a growing space for it. I went to Three different news journalism conferences this year. In all all of them I met podcasting investigative journalism teams where they follow a story and they produce long series following one story and a podcast for him. And I think that's an amazing way to do. Investigative Journalism and I think podcasting an individual works because the corporation is chasing money corporations always chasing money. And that's that's their job. That's what a corporation operation does but the individuals they can develop a relationship in a trust with their audience and they can prove to that audience the things that they care about and it it it creates less of a minefield of who can you trust. What can you rely on because you can turn to that source and you can be like? I trust that person because they were right in the past and they have that they can develop that reputation that a lot of organizations have lost. Because when you have one bad apple in a news department it can poke holes in the entire apartments reputation. Or if you're one person it feels like it's easier to judge that person's integrity or a small team of people I also think podcasting is a huge you can is becoming and will continue to become a huge way to consume what I what we refer to as traditional news which is just more like print and audio form form or interviewing journalists about what they're writing about rather than like hearing the story from their mouths rather than reading what they've written That's how I consume most most of my news these days on a national and international scale. I listen to three news podcasts up first by. NPR daily by New York. Times thanks Mike for Recommending that and post reports sports by the Washington Post and I listen to those three every weekday. And that's how I get my my chunk like my hour of national and international news obviously in writing the local news. So I know about it. Yeah yeah I I I I do feel like It it it is a great delivery. You know you were talking about earlier about being able to curate and if you can find trusted sources in and I do think it requires some thinking like I think this is we sometimes want to find the trusted source and then just kind of turn like okay. Now I don't have to think and I think we have to think more even entrusted sources to say on the other side of this is and I wonder how other people think about it and you know be able to think critically. I'm a big fan of of radio lab the NPR podcast. They also do these stories in the they always have at the end. You know other other thanking the people who felt daily got fifteen people that do this and they always say fact checked by Blah Blah Blah Blah. And I'm like Oh yeah I wonder what my life would be like if I was actually fact checked on everything I said like would i. Would I be a little more careful about what I said and And how much of it would just be stuff I made up and so I think there's important There's important integrity pieces right built in to that to make sure and it's never a hundred percent right. It's hard to separate emotion and it's hard to separate opinion but you have to the reason. The Code of ethics exists is because you have to have bounce up bounce that up against what. You're what you're doing up against it to measure it. How well am I doing this as a journalist have you ever felt like you've gotten a spot where maybe it's got you've taken it a little too far in the direction of opinion versus journalism or has that been a dividing line that you've been able to stay pretty close to? I like to think that the line of how held pretty close to the one thing that I have run into is when you're in a small town or a small college campus campus Conflict of interest is something that we deal with a lot when you are reporting a story because you know the like you found the story and decided to this news ready. Because you know the person or whether you knowing the person that you're interviewing beforehand compromises the integrity of your interview. It's really hard because when you're in a small town you kind of get to know everybody like by my senior year working for my high school newspaper. I knew half of the people in the senior class and so it was hard to write news and avoid conflict conflict of interest. Because I'm like this. Is that person my friend. I mean yeah. They're kind of my friend in. It's like I have to have a professional interview with them anyway because we have a staff of thirteen people in like. There's nobody else to write this story in so we you gonNA run into that the further into writing in a small area you get. Is You have to kind of check all of your relationships in you have to be careful who you're making relationships with because if you become best friends with the student Senate president you could never write about students Senate because that compromises your connection with that institution and so you don't have a lot. That's why people get so insular in their little newsroom. Bubble is because you're afraid to make friends with people outside of what you work with because you're afraid that they're going to need to be a source and then your integrity is going to be compromised and I struggle with that because I had to give up covering a certain beat because I became for unto the President of an organization through covering it. I was like well. I mean I didn't intend for this to it happened but we're friends now so I got to pass it off to somebody else. 'cause it's not me anymore now let's get to know it'd be it sometimes. It's hard to let go of those in this case the beat eat. It'd be easy to say. Oh well I'll figure it out you know but but you were like no I kind of need to move violated. Move Away from that and and get it done today in reporting When you think about the technology that you absolutely need you find lots of different ways to get things done? But today if if I were to ask you what your Go-to tool you can't live without right now as a reporter Let's go to tool that you use. It's the smartphone. I I talked about this last time when I was on. The podcast is I can pretty much do my entire job on a smartphone because I record my interviews on my voice notes APP I type them up onto Google Docs. In then there's a slack in a trello APP so I can just send things off through my phone. And then I I. I mean theoretically never tried to upload a story using blocks on my phone which is our C. C. The content management system. I know these things publishing right now. I've never tried to get on my phone but theoretically I imagine I could and then of course I can posted social from my phone phone and so investing in a good phone. Oh and a good camera on your phone because then you can take pictures to accompany your story because more and more people aren't hiring journalists. They're hiring or we call 'em multimedia journalists who are like a one man band And can do it all can right can take those in video you. He used to just have tigers right. That was a role you would still do. But they're becoming fewer and fewer. I think was it. Sports illustrated got rid of all all of their staff members and they freelance photographers but mostly they're writers are tasked with being photographers which is difficult. Because it's hard to write a story that you're you'd like I use still use a pen and paper whenever I go anywhere to take my notes and then I'm recording on the phone and it's hard to be thinking about what you're gonNA write and like making sure you get everything that everybody says that also finding the perfect moment to take a picture because you're not looking up that often glancing at for a fraction of a second and then going back to writing unless you're like at some point you have to develop the skill of writing without looking which is what one of my professors does. He will literally be doing an interview. He'll be making eye contact with the source. The whole time and writing at the same time has kinda creepy. Yeah I know what to think about. It'd be like can you read it. You know at the shorthand where it's like a centers in D. centers and then scribbles and. Then he immediately after interviews would go into his car in transcribe it. Let's do the refreshing his memory. It's crazy that is a different breed. Broadcast journalists are often now you know they used to go out with a camera person as well so now they're their own camera crew tripod themselves up. They put it on a tripod. They stand in front and the record the news. Do you think that's good or bad. I think it's difficult and it's super challenging. I mean there it. It decreases the quality to some level but that keeps local news stations alive. Then I guess it's gotTa be just from from a cost perspective is I do think news has to figure out how to pay for itself and it's a whole it's a whole new World Mike. This is almost more more terrifying than the the fake news thing is. How are we going to continue? We need a pay journalists. Well and I'm kind of wondering if You know the Patriot model Is really what in other words. I build a reputation as being someone. Who's whatever it fair? Honest our say that and I and I follow. I mean I think about I have some tech people that I follow that I The you know. I've been listening to them long enough. I trust their opinion. They I do treat it like journalism in a lot of ways and In I would if I if I needed to. I would consider supporting them From a another ad supported in what they're currently doing but I would support him if we needed to. And I'm Kinda wondering you know. We add support or patriots support podcasters and a lot of different ways wondering about the future model of journalism isn't more of a distributed contractor. You have elusive affiliation and you provide news towel. Let's whether it's writing or speaking or maybe both but you are your own brand. I don't know just a thought. What do you think there is a future? And that's one of the reasons. Why the podcast model is working for these? Small teams is that they're partially ad supported noted but they're very greatly patriot and supported in so they have dedicated listeners. Who are like I believe in this and I will pay you money to keep doing what you're doing doing because I value the service that you provide for me adds support? It can be a little sticky because you might have an advertiser that were because they're advertising. Hi this do you see a similar stickiness if you have patriots support where somebody may be beholding to another individual who is a large which could be a large donor via patriot. Do you think that could skew things. I think it's possible but I think no matter what you do. You're getting your money from somewhere. And somebody's going to try to make you behold into them through that money whether it's an advertiser supporter and you gotta do your best to not let them keep you you down. Pay Patron is the old Actually political model politicians have been using the Patriot model for hundreds of years fierce right. Yep Yeah so now. Journalists may need to go that same route the the the the arch enemies like politicians are journalists. We are the fourth estate..

"Single week home gadget geeks dot com and there's two big buttons Android iphone. Maybe not even in that order. But they're available there for you. Download them they're free and you can get access to the show at like. I said you don't You don't download they're all streaming all the time you have connectivity but the best way to listen live Sami. We wouldn't have you back on I. I wanted to ask you three questions tonight. One about print one about cable in one about podcasting journalism so we Kinda cute that up just for folks that you are listening there will be some texts sprinkle then but with Sammy's background and her studying journalism and northwest Missouri State and paying a lot of money to have her. She's paying some of it in a fair amount to be fair to be fair but proportionately you're probably paying more than I am when we think about your income versus mine so we'll we'll just kind of leave that there But I want to get started. We last time you were on the show. We talked a little bit about Technology that you use in school and I thought this time it might be really really interesting. News is a really interesting place here in United States like Gallup has a brand new podcast that I hope I'm kind of the executive producer for forecast out of the Echo Chamber and we've we partner with the knightfoundation with this idea of bringing some trust back to news because it has taken it so hard on the chin. Do do you as a student. Do you feel that that kind of that assault on news. I do not as much as I would if I was in a mainstream a news organization but we do feel it we. We had an incident last year where somebody on twitter was calling us fake news even though we were right no how it is But yeah it's you especially the closer you get to graduation. You feel the pressure in the hostility towards the industry in your lake. Okay am I going to get a job if I get a job. Are People going to hate me like a lot of people think that because journalism is kind of in the public eye that like people are doing it for fame mm-hmm and we're like no we know that more people are going to dislike us than are GonNa like us like we get more mean comments that nice comments when we talked about when we talk about podcasting. I'm I'M GONNA GONNA ask about because there is idea of news retainment which right where people are kind of going in and taking the news making entertainment out of it. I think most of our evening being you know tonight the tonight show and some of those kinds of things co bear and those guys. They've kind of become news retainment right. They're just they kind of cover the news but the joke and you don't no like what's real and what's not and they kind of stretch it right so I want it says we get to this idea of podcasting here at the end the show. I can't I'M GONNA I'm GonNa hit hard on that one because I think you've done it. Well let's save it for the end. I I WANNA ask you the name of the paper so you you actually the school You have a print version of the paper that this you guys write for the school but it gets distributed pretty wide. Why still on paper Birlik? It's two thousand nineteen. I would have thought by now. Like paper would've gone the way of the dinosaur. and Are you guys watching that at all to see what kind of circulation numbers you avenue. Talk a little bit about why you're still stuck doing stuff on paper. Yes so a lot of newspapers have died because of the because of Industry Street side of things Local papers have been bought up by large companies and then consolidated basically the companies that buy the newspapers will them for all they're worth earth and then sell their usually these buildings that these newspapers are housed in our like some of the oldest buildings in town in their prime real estate in downtown areas in and so the companies will milk the paper for all its worth. Kill the paper and then sell the building for profit. And that's how they make their profit off of buying. These never thought I never thought of the real estate now. Now we we talk about it a lot in our journalism classes. The these larger companies are consolidating down local newspapers but campus. Newspapers have been able to survive. Because we're free. Most campus newspapers are in so we between advertising revenue from the paper itself and also we put out twice a year we put out the homecoming guide and the cats guide which are more advertising than content and through some leftover yearbook revenue. If we don't break even we're able to break even put out a free paper and then through donors and the university we're able to pay our staff and so because we don't want our competition shen paper is paid and we also have students in a localized area. There were able to easily distribute to. It's almost almost easier to reach them by physically putting paper in their face then by putting it in their news feeds which you guys do on campus right. You're pretty aggressive about getting the paper out. Gap is physically taking it out and handing to people. What kind of response? What how? What kind of response to get from the student body when you're handing it out? Are they pretty open to it or are they some who pick it up immediately thrown in the trash I mean what kind of Response to get as you're handing out we get those for sure people who just take it because the pressure sure of US standing in the student union giving them to them and then immediately put it in the recycle because we're green campus but we there are students who read it pretty religiously like I. I went to the station which is kind of like. It's like a conference center slash like small restaurant and convenience store on campus and I went to pick up a package in the girl at the front desks. The name on my card and was like Oh. Do you write for the newspaper and I was like yes. She's like. Oh I read it every week I read it for the blotters what the police reports. But I get distracted by the news in so there are people who genuinely will like read it every week. Whether it's just read the blotters into this at Oh goo but especially people in like student government read it pretty religiously and staff and faculty read it a lot. I would think whenever I'm talking to professors. They're like oh I read that article. I'm sorry I think we're still surprised. At how many people still want in pick up a print copy during being Some part of Thanksgiving last night. We were because I'm going to lend in. We were talking about what some common some common things In England and one of them is it in the description. We were talking about the English breakfast and they said it's proper to actually read the newspaper while you're having breakfast and so that that you know I I do think there are. There are people that that still do that Do you find to young people. Like so the the folks that you go to school with you ever see anybody reading the paper at like in the dining facility or you know in that kind of scenario you ever couch anybody actually reading it yet and I think what helps is that. It's free. I don't think I've ever seen anybody like reading the MARYVILLE forum. which is our competition paper in the city that you have to pay a subscription for but yeah I do see people reading and one of the things that I've been thinking about putting the pieces together as I think a lot about decision Asian fatigue because that affects me a lot when it gets to the end of the day? And it's like what do you wanna eat for dinner. I'm like I've made so many decisions today. I don't WanNa make another decision. I think the Nice thing about a physical newspaper is it. curates the news for you. You know what's important and it's in this little twelve page thing and you in it tells you you. It's literally literally ranked by importance in so he the further. You read the less important. The news gets in so if you just read like the first paragraph of every story or you just read the stories on the front page you're going to get the most important stuff and so it takes away all those choices of like scrolling through twitter feed and trying to decide what's bs in what is actually important and what's not not going to matter twenty four hours from now you can just pick up the physical thing in like. Here's what you need to now. It's like thank you for making these decisions for me and creating this army. I appreciate. She ate it as a youtube or one of the things they don't ask enough is that people actually put comments in the Youtube in the comments section. If you're watching this on youtube whenever live or even after the fact love to know if you read the local paper so down in the comments down there hit hit the thumbs up and subscribe. I have to you say you're obligated to stay that anytime you talk about you. And then Let me know in the comments. What you what you read and Sammy whether that's print or or electron you guys also do chronic version yet. And I've watched that kind of change your workflow a little bit this year as you guys have made a switch from in priorities and maybe you can talk a little bit about that. How do you guys approach the online version? And what can readership versus now. Prince handed out but any idea on the difference in readership between the online and print version. I don't look at those stats as much on the thing. We kind of switched over this year. We got a lot of new leadership. We got a new editor in chief. Managing being editor obviously me and Kendrick editor moved into the news section editor positions. And so we've been taking a more or we've been trying to take more online fine. I approach where we put either a full story or part of the story online within twenty four hours of especially event coverage and then a full story or a story with more visuals in the physical paper and so the the physical paper is more like a curated. Here's the best of our online coverage from the week week. We've been trying to take more of that approach to draw people to our website and I also get to see more of the website because as the news editor who has the the availability on Wednesdays. I put most of our stuff on the website and I write social media posts for the new section in. So I'm on that backside. Comparing those things I think our sports section gets more online readership usually the end of the week. When we do critique our web manager will read out some stats and usually the top stories on the website your sports things because those guys are turning around so many stories within twenty four hours of a sports event happening? It's so hard to write sports for a weekly newspaper taper because so many things are old like it's going to change tomorrow because they're playing a game tomorrow but there's a lot of really good online coverage northwest says a really good football program and so there's a lot and and a good and yet a very good basketball program so there's a lot of good news to write about right. It's it would be. But did your deadlines change when you move from from print I and some online in other words you know with print you're building up to a certain day and then it's going and it's you know oh it's printing and whereas online you can post any time. Did that did that. Change your deadlines. And how are you managing those with with technology. How are you managing those deadlines I think? The the mindset changes from writing multiple stories at the same time to focusing on one story at a time is more the way. So if I I go to a student. Senate debate hosted debate on a Wednesday night. I'm thinking about that story for the next twenty four hours and post like writing it either that night or the next morning it goes to the edits process and then I put it online and on social that next evening and then I'm thinking about the next story that has the next headline so rather than working on like three stories simultaneously with a deadline on Monday or Tuesday. I'm writing a story and then putting it up and then writing a story and then putting it up etcetera etcetera etcetera and we. We're still trying to find a way to manage those individual deadlines it's mostly. We just like manage them with our staff in her slack.
