"Like Athletic jersey from nike or adidas or something is often a typically polyester jersey in. That's after these axiom materials. So the polyester is the same as the serve and when you use our technology to make that he t it's exactly the same stuff sandy but it has a way lower separate is functionally meant to be as functionally the same. It is it is exactly the same in fact if you gave it to a lab to go analyze it you'd have to. You'd have to get beyond the electrons into the nucleus to understand that it came from a different source. It is exactly the same house apostle yes. That's the magic of sort of chemistry Is that as long as you arrange the atoms in the right configuration than you get the same thing on the other side and so without getting into all of the nitty gritty on it essentially the chemical transformations that we do and able to make the same stuff that you make from trillion but we make charting with that with would feedstocks instead and the trick with that kind of thing. Is you know we joke. Sometimes in the industry the you can make anything out of anything. The question is can you make economically and so in our case It's not surprising to most people in the industry that you might be able to make the would that surprising things you can do it so economically and that sort of our trek will.

"Can we tolerate other people's behavior. And how much can we tolerate other people's behavior for example mathematics. It's very interesting when you listen to a mathematics professor who was teaching all his life or her life and you show them a different way how to get the same result because the results is either correct or it's not. Does it really matter at all how we get to the results. Now when you listen to these professors they are almost allergic so they have very low tolerance when you show them another way how you get to the result So it also has to do with the pictures we have in our head how we believe the world is how we perceive it and what we believe to be true. Now i think he is. How can we increase tolerance definitely. That's the okay that does not mean to make any foul deals okay. So i'm going to tolerate it now. Because he said so. My son asked me to tolerate his banana eating in front of me. Well i could. If i wanted to. But i don't want to you see now. We can build a bridge and make an agreement. You can have as many bananas as you want. And i even buy them for you. I bring them home for you. I even serve them to you until the peels closed because otherwise they start smelling and make sure that you get rid of them one way or the other before they get to ripe and really stink the whole house now. In order to have that tolerance we must have respect and also have a communication somewhat. Why because no one's a mind reader. Now how can we increase it. How can we increase sovereigns. It may sound boring. That i say it again but it all starts within. How much do i tolerate myself. Can i stand the way i think. Can i stand the way. I stand my standard the arto sandy. Can i stand the way i speak. Can i stand the way. I present myself or can i not. I remember when i moved here to the united states. Many years ago. I still was much more small squared. I call it this way. In geometry you have the paper that has millimeters and squares so that you can draw more precisely in such code graph paper graph paper. Thank you we call it. In german millimeter peppier and i was so organized in specific areas of my life that i considered myself being small squared or graph paper like so then i went into bigger squares now. I don't have these lines anymore. I've freed myself from the rest of those. It limitations that. I was aware off and then sometimes some more limitations show up so when i now look back at me. My tolerance was much lower regarding specific ideas regarding specific behaviors regarding specific tolerable settings. And i think. I said it in one of the early episodes that i went out with someone who was fond of me and i was invited for lunch and it was really very nice but the way he ate i just couldn't stand it truly but he was a very nice man back then. I did not tolerated today. I would probably tolerate it much more because my values have changed too because to me today. Who has a good heart has a good heart and if you have a good heart come on in. I'm here and my world is open to you because you can't buy that.

Sandy says that it's a secret that came with her father from japan but since they won't but since she won't tell them the secret should make it up to them with the best dinner he ever had now. The next morning mike is ready to set a trap for the pro robbers. He's hiding in the rocks with a pair of binoculars in his full scuba rig looking for any suspicious activity. He spots a boat but he doesn't see the divers go into the water on the other side of the boat. He does however see their bubbles and heads out with his camera to catch them in the act at the pro beds. Mike hides behind a rock with the cameras. The divers approach as they start to rob the beds. Mike starts to film but he gets careless. He says the sound of the camera alerts. The divers wanted a bad guy circles around in surprises. Mike they get into a fight. The other bad guy grabs the camera and pulls out the film now while the underwater fight is going on. Sandy was watching from the beach and she suspects trouble and his racing to the pro beds with her boat. The bad guys rip mics regulator out of his mouth but as they are scared off by the sound of sandy's boat. Mike is left helpless. Miraculously mike doesn't drown he recovers we see some eagle raising the background as he heads to the surface he's blowing bubbles all the way up we now see the camera resting on the bottom. Mike struggles back on. The boat is gasping for air. A sandy asks him if he is all right in the next scene. Now we see mike lying on a chair. Sandy's giving him not some tea. He says he doesn't want anymore and starts to work on a plan to catch the bad guys lieutenant dave. Sandy says she wants to let them have the pearls. Because they're not worth mike's life.

The's he shows. Dave how it's going to work as he pans across the island. Just mike points to camera towards dave in. Sandi dave says hey look at the prettiest girl in blue island has sandy strikes. Oppose the camera. And she says she's the only girl on lulu island as mike looks to take off underwater. Sandy gives him a big kiss for luck. And mike says he's never had any better luck back underwater with the tv camera. Mike is waiting for all three villains as they are. Now jumping in the water to steal the pearls but this time one of them has a spear gun. Mike has the tv camera pointed at the pro beds. But there's a problem. The bad guys are coming from the wrong direction and they're not on tv. The ambush mike. Who's only hope is to move maneuver them into the frame of a camera. Chaos prevails as they fight and slash at one. another finally might get them to the pearl beds. The spear gun is fired and strikes the bed. Fortunately sandy is watching and as yells to dave look at this cast off now. The cops are headed to the fight during the fight. Mike's left arm is slashed but he continues fighting pulling a regulator out of one of the bad guys. Mouth just then. He sees the to hawaiian police officers free diving or swimming trucks.

"And welcome to the inquisitors podcast. You know what the surface of the earth looks like.

Most of the earth's surface is covered with oceans but what is under the surface. Is it just more dirt. Could we really dig all the way to china. Science says no we could not dig all the way to china cover. The inside of the earth is actually made of four very thick and very different layers starting from the center of the earth and working out toward the surface. The layers are the inner core the outer core the mantle and the crust. The inner core is a solid ball made of iron and nickel. These are both metal elements that are very heavy. They are also both magnetic. The inner core is fifteen hundred miles across. It's roughly the size of the moon and it's very very hot. The temperature down there is five thousand degrees celsius. The next layer is called the outer core the outer core is made of iron and nickel and sulfur and oxygen. It is even hotter than the inner core. It's six thousand degrees celsius. It's a liquid layer that flows around the solid inner core. The liquid moves by convection. That means that as some of the molecules heat up they rise and as other molecules cool down they fall. This liquid layer is constantly swirling because of the rising and falling molecules. They give it like a pot of boiling water. Bubbling and moving even when the pot is

"sandy" Discussed on Sandy K Nutrition
"Everyone welcome to ck nutrition health and lifestyle queen today with me. I have jennifer arthur. Ten of old chicks no shit. She has her own podcast. She has her own company where she coaches other women in midlife and beyond to really really be who they are. Authentically meant to be and we had a lovely conversation. Not gonna get into that. Because that's what the podcast is for. And you're gonna get to hear all of her amazing wisdom. And i think i'm going to settle on that word right here and talk a little bit about wisdom. I believe that once we reach midlife. It's not only about maturity it's also about the wisdom that we have gained for the last forty years fifty years sixty years and i believe that women often encounter a change in their life especially once they lose that ability to procreate so whether you've had children or haven't had children it doesn't matter women have that capability to create life and once that ability is gone a lot of things change in women and jennifer. I actually get into this and she has some fascinating insights into what happens with a woman when they reach midlife. And they're starting to slow down in terms of their hormones are hormones are changing and their lives must align with this change otherwise often we see women feeling lost women losing that vibrancy that they once had in their youth and nobody wants that. I don't want that. I'm fifty one and i wanna feel like i'm thirty five forever. I really do. However i want to have that wisdom which is something that most of us do gain as we reach midlife couple of announcements. Please do go and follow me. I am very active on instagram. At sandy cay nutrition or at sandy cay wellness. I have a lot going on in my stories at saint decay nutrition. So check it out there. I'm also on facebook. Sandy caney tricia and i have a page.

That's where we need to insist on going. Don't let power continue to have the same conversation over and over and over and over and it's like yes. These changes they don't necessarily have to only come through legislation. We can create these things for each other. We can recognize that legislation is one of the ways that some of these changes in our society can come about but i said before you know. Legislation follows culture. We have to change culture which means we have to change the stories we have to change the narratives to push beyond what power is telling us whenever we have the opportunity whenever we get a taste of power to have the opportunity to tell a story we should be as bulldogs possible and change the narrative.

Fraser were my fee wet for two and a half weeks straight like they did not dry inside freeze ever met such unkind people fucking line. I mean they go to school in a cloud. Like the whole place weird. Sorry if here at simon fraser you should speak up and say what the fuck but the media in this country has a job of manufacturing a unified identity. Because they don't want candy to break up. They don't want canadians to realize that canada is actually completely fake. And the problem is is that lake we also then buy into it. And we don't understand the regional differences when we're trying to figure out modes of solidarity and how to help one another and how to do activists work across these across these divides and so we have to create those spaces. This is i think the big message for my own book and certainly. I think that that was the reason that the student was so strong in the labor movement. As well as that. You're forcing people to bring to come together. Whether or not you produce anything out of that is kind of a different question. But you force people to come together and then people actually realize. Oh my god. There's an accent in calgary. If you're from auto. Like they have an accent in calgary what the fuck right and you just don't realize unless you actually have that opportunity to travel so how to left wing organizations give activists the money and the resources to do that kind of work. I think that that is fundamental to doing anything in this country. That is going to put pressure on the federal government because the federal government depends on federalism. And it depends on the legitimacy that it holds within regions across canada. So i was wondering. Because i don't think i'm very well suited to go to many Go again but as wondering like how to get more than like behind the scenes stuff and what sort of behind the scenes stuff you think is most needed. I can start. I think one of the things i mean. There's a couple answers to your well. I'm sure there's tons of answers to your question but a couple that come to mind right away that in order to get involved in anything you just gotta get involved and so Joining an organization First of all and then the thing is that everyone's always looking for people to do behind the scenes work because a lot of people join activist organizations Because they see what happens on television and the television or the newspapers only focus on a small small like ten percent of what activist organizations do ends people who joined being like. Yeah i'm gonna be on tv. And i'm going to be shutting down a building or something and it's like kay that happens like almost never most of its like research and writing really boring meetings it which is just like strategic work so a lot of times people figure this out you know black organizations are dealing with this across the world right now all these people who joined in the summer and we're like oh man. This thought it was going to be. It's like there's a lot of work that needs to happen and people leave because it's not as exciting. We're not as fun as they thought it was going to be so fear. Not there's lots of room or lots of need for people doing background work. The other thing is if joining organizations is not for you or you can't find one in your location or that really speaks to you writing if you can if you can write or even like speak like if it's a it's a podcast or something like anything that you can do to put your ideas out there..

"With unions too. You can always been in touch with the off line or online elsewhere. And i might be to give you some ideas you can tell me. What unit is. I might know folks there right. I might know folks. I might know the history and be like. Oh that guy's gotta die before anything changes. Sometimes it is important to know who like literally going to have to die at their desk before something changes. I actually learn really like robert's rules. And i'm willing to argue with anybody. But i also knew that was a reference to what's going on in the chat but i also to used to work an academic union so while i'm terrible at responding to emails and messages that are assigned to me. If you send it to nora and say nora. Tell sandy this she will. And then i can. That's that's the secret. Hope that to you all being on this call tonight. Get that little secret. That's the only way context. I big sancti. Both for all the work you've done as as activists and and on this podcast. I appreciate it. So much My question is a little more selfish but basically as a recent journalism grad myself. I admire so much. What you've done nora as i nevada you know an independent Critical journalists and. I just wonder if you have any advice for someone who's kind of looking to break into the field. I you know. I gotta be honest with you. Because if you'd asked me advice two years ago would have said drop out one of the one of the wonderful things in my life. I didn't finish in journalism. I did fires at the rise in journalism school and then I mean. I had to finish where because it can do part time and they still accept me as an alum and so it was like first of all understanding. What kind of what kind of act of like support is really meaningful like. I don't look for. I don't look for kind of praise from like the famous kind of journalists out there but seeing my own school of journalism. That i fucking fought tooth and nail. Didn't even finish as an alum. Proudly share my articles. Ryerson journalism alum. And it's like it's not true. It's not true. But they don't care because they like the biggest meeting most meaningful thing to me. Okay that was self indulgent. How do you get into the world of of whatever so. It's really hard for me to answer that question because my path into journalism has always been a very different I kind of faked it. Until one day i realized i was a good writer like i really spent five years. Just just putting stuff out being like. Yeah i'm gonna fuck in be journalist and part of that. Was you know i edited a newspaper. Called the ryerson free press that was unfortunately sued out of existence by a piece of shit lawyer who is a fucking asshole whose names andrew monkhouse but the. Yeah yeah yeah. Sandy also is aware of this this this fellow. And so like i learned a guess. Here's the advice. Understand the tricks of the trade right. Be a be a good writer. Be a good researcher do interviews properly. Don't cut corners. Obviously don't plagiarize do everything properly right. If you're a left wing person. This is the case for any job that you have. You have to know your craft. You have to master your craft and you have to be better at your craft than everyone around you because if you are a left wing person and you have a critical perspective. You're never ever gonna get you like like i've never even had a mentor right. I've never had a mentor. I've never had anyone reach out to me like nor i want to help you understand this industry. I've had friends who i was friends with..

"And so many platforms and i think that makes it a really good fit for having these discussions that are sometimes sidelined. Often sidelined in traditional mass media. What do you think makes it a bad fit. You can't see us in my pretty purple hair. Yeah that's that that is one of the problems is if you're super hot. No one knows which is a real disadvantage for both of us. Because you don't even know where this until tonight. My god i thought they just had the voice which by the way standing i have like a hell of a of a couple of duets. So maybe i mean that's another disadvantage of not being live is. There's no after party here. Yogi yeah always be. My baby is a is a off a duet that we perform and are very good at just you know just it just seems so perfect like sandy and i record a conversation that we have over the phone and and just talking over the phone and then recording locally and then we produce this show and like look at the power that this that this little show that could has achieved right before this festival. Sandy and i had never spoken to journalist before no one had ever interviewed us but our show and he said when you're shut out of the mainstream media that's why this this this medium is so perfect is because you can have an in-depth intimate conversation that is unscripted scripted but is not mediated by forces that normally try to mediate. Tell you what to say or what to do. In fact what you're doing often for us anyway is is. We're feeding off the energy of the people that like to listen to us which is like really positive and healthy. And and engaging in and so yeah. I'm a big fan of it and if anybody's interested in learning more a podcasting lake. You can totally be in touch with me at any time. And i can do my best to let you know i mean startup. Costs can run you from nothing to like three hundred dollars or four hundred dollars and and even when you get to a level that's like really consistent like us we're still not paying too much money for our regular costs so it really isn't accessible medium. Yeah it is. And i'm you know i'm really glad to to see that. A bunch of listeners have started their own podcasts. Even one of my cousins started the greedy nurse podcast which is a nursing. Which you know is really important right now so. Check that out if you can. It's really important for those of us who aren't being not able to have voices elevated by a power again it's power comes in to create our own pattern and showcase it there so look thank you all for joining us tonight for the weirdest live. Show that we've ever done. It's great to see you nora. It's great to a drink with you over over over zoom and you know cheers to our first podcast festival May there be many more. And thank you all for being here with us at through. This journey of this podcast. We're so appreciative of the audience. And just one more note. I guess for hannah. It's like one of the reasons why podcasting you know. I i feel like if if i was going to try to think of downside it would be whereas power preventing us from speaking to from having a conversation with our with our listeners. And they're not because we get to have conversations with you regularly whether it's through tha through live shows or through the comments that you folks send us on twitter or email that we then address in the show so thank you all for being here and being part of the san diego journey. We love it. We didn't expect it to to get to where it's at today and it's just been such a.

"That are like like cereal and others that discuss some sort of carriage of injustice and most of them are done by women. So i don't know if i perhaps an incorrect understanding of the history of podcasting but i do think that there's this idea i don't know if you've heard this before nora. There's this idea in radio. That women's voices are too similar so you can't have too many voices that are women's voices on the air at a time because people won't be able to tell them apart. Have you ever heard that people d- people can't tell us apart. Yeah i know whatever now. Have you heard that said to you. I heard that way back when we were working together. The canadian federation of students when they were considering having me and another student person from a a less politically good organization on at the same time and they were saying that they couldn't have as both on at the same time because to women's voices can be confusing. And i had never heard that before. Either way you know. People have weird justifications for why women can't do shit which is all the dead stories meant to tell you. There's a lot of bullshit out there when it comes to Silencing women's voices and so it makes it a good fit is that we get to do whatever the fuck we want on podcasting we can. We can talk about difficult issues We can talk about issues when the media and you know this is happened to nora specifically. The media has decided. We don't wanna talk to you anymore because your ideas are too radical your idea that people of color don't get treated the same way as white folks as too radical or your idea that defending the police is a conversation that's worth having is too radical podcasting medium is so it's so easy to like get some sort of hosting package for podcast and be connected to so many people all over the world.

"The police executed in ottawa and died young black man after the police executed a no knock warrant in ottawa. So that's happening right now. They're they're desperately trying to get people to pay attention to this. This this situation could be a part of making sure that people pay attention to that by saying look we agree with this campaign and man like yeah. We're gonna take the political risk to say that we agree with this campaign and all of the folks who have the riding associations across the country. Were were organizing. Educational is about it. There's going to be workshops. We're connecting you with the activists on the ground. That could be a part of the way that end ep muse forward on these things and instead i think they're. They're putting a lot of effort behind the tactic of what happens in the house which unfortunately only a certain small subset of nerds in. The canadian population are paying attention to yeah and like ninety percent of them are liberals even. Yeah twenty five percent of them are me and nora exactly which we're not impressed by okay so it's already in the eastern time zone so it's like almost midnight but it's already almost the end of the show and so we have enough time for one more question But i do want to address two very quick questions. Gillen's asked about like ideas of place to read and what helps us make sense the world. We talk about this podcast before i. I don't have a good suggestion for that. I read everything. Said he's said she. She reads everything. I listen to us. People will hopefully help guide you a little bit but but do you read everything because people read everything in understand what people think. You need to understand what they're consuming and how there may be formulating their opinions In the question. Scott do sandy deem as being in your band i do. I do performing. It was so much fun. Yeah we we had a great time and we performed we performed at the silver dollar. We performed at the opera house. Like we've performed these great. Yeah it's very toronto. don't exist anymore and it's really sad but It was it was it was a blast was a lot of fun. Who knows. maybe you'll join a band again some day. How about you do you miss your band. Oh yeah yeah. I mean absolutely yeah i. I was performing on my own to quebec city. That has kind of stopped. Obviously everything's stopped right now but yeah. Dan was amazing. I mean we had a lot of fun and my my last shows at silver dollar..

And the twelve hour bus ride all the way home from sudbury that we had to take because we missed the flight because i was sure it was at whatever time was even asked. Did you double check the time. And you said of course i did and when we went in the flight was gone and i was very angry. That was the only time he fought though. Yes it's true. Yeah and we got sick on a terrible night. That was the worst. We rolling at york ville. Which is the mall. North toronto at six. Am and you're just like wanted. A terrible gosh okay. Next question from joe clerk. The podcast has so much great media criticism along your political insight. How alongside your political insights very. How do you see the role of media critique in political activism critical it's critical. It's understanding. yeah. I think you know. So much of our world is shapes sorry. Our entire world is shaped through media. Our entire world is shape through media. Media is so important even if you are not a big consumer of the news you will get the news. It will be filtered down to you through whatever filters it needs to get to you. But whatever you're hearing about the world is coming to you through some sort of whether it's mass media or alternative media so like it is so crucial for all of us in this world today to have some sort of media literacy and part of what we're doing on the show is providing that that ability to critique media to be media literate about the media by telling you how we think about the things that we are seeing on the news and how we understand the way that power is influencing what you see on the news or what you see getting to you through whatever medium it gets to you and i think you know. Maybe that's because nor was the communications director and i was often the person on screen when i was at the canadian. Federation of students like responding to media calls so much of our relationship Started with just being deeply critical of the media because we had to be knowing understanding that just because we said the canadian federation of students believes in free. Education didn't mean that the interview that we were going to have was going to be about free education at all understanding just because the media reported that the government had decided to implement free. Education didn't mean the ontario government implemented free education at all Which was something that happened. Closer to two thousand ten or maybe twenty twelve about twenty twenty one two thousand twelve. The government announced the implemented free tuition..

"That would have been a post recording conversation but unfortunately benefit from that just invite us back next year when we all have been oxygenated with three different vaccines which is my plan by the way. I'm taking them all. I think that they're all gonna be safe ingred. How has our relationship. How is it really ship gene. I don't think it has. They don't think our our relationship hasn't changed at all. I mean we're like older which you think would add a level of maturity to us. But i think we have been like north very similar. So if you're like me you've reached the current level of maturity at around what thirteen fourteen years old. And there your whole life. You know are we were you know. I don't know for whatever reason we were really fast friends and we're both weirdos and have like this weird similar backgrounds like we were both a part of this weird canadian choir seen. We both had very strange experiences in in southern ontario gifted program which is not the same as everywhere else. I know that in some places it's just about your ability to pass like some sort of like really difficult aptitude academic test but there's a psychological component to the way that they do things and you're actually considered to be like neuro divergent and that. Is you know a part of our history that you know helped us to when we met each other it was like oh another person like me. We were both in bands when we met and would perform you know we. We just had this weird set of things that made us very similar at the same time or obviously very different people that made for nora is funnier. Nora is funnier. that made and my patience is thinner. Okay so that made us you know. Very quick friends and deepened. Our relationship almost instantly. Do we disagree. I think less now than we used to but it was. It was the kind of relationship. I remember one of the things that i really appreciated about working with nora. Nora was while he was chairperson of the canadian federation of students nor was the communications communications and government relations staff person and the first thing i wrote that was supposed to go out publicly. She like she she. She was the first person to edit it and so she was like red marks all over the page. And i'm fucking good writer okay. So it was like what the fuck so red marks all over the page and at points on the page. It said like what the fuck is this. What does this mean. No you know that kind of thing. And i was like i love this girl. She's so honest like and we were very much from the very beginning..

"Pretty opposed to the idea that we can pivot online. I think during the pandemic we've had very little choice we've had two but the reality is that the best activism is still in person even during the pandemic and bloch's matter demonstrated that in this incredible like. Hey everybody we've been locked in for three months but guess what this is important enough. We're going to go outside. We're gonna do safely and we're going to start demonstrating again. I think certainly as university is online everything right now is online and so maintaining relationships and finding ways to stay in touch and maybe doing reading groups or or debate circles or or whatever saying in touch with people running running virtual campaigns. If you can is really important. But i i am very hesitant to say that are excellent examples of digital organizing because a lot of those examples are known. You know like there's the big hashtag campaigns that people are aware of Like you know like me too. Or or whatever But the reality is is that we. We still need to do that in person. Work and i think the biggest barrier to to student activism right now is not online versus real life but it's tuition fees. it's the ability of students to take risks and to confront the status quo and to get organized because the student movement right now all across the country is a very difficult situation. I think that it's safe to say that. It has not been this disorganized in decades and i don't think going online is gonna save it. I think that there are more fundamental problems to it and figuring out how to organize students. Who feel like they can't miss class because the miss class it's like eight hundred dollars.

Harpsichord and organ and and that last track is a track called called gingy dervish at which he wrote in jinzhou in In south korea and it is one of my favorite tracks. I mean like of all music. Just love it. It's got such a great energy and to see him. Play it live is really amazing. 'cause he plays with multiple multiple keyboards. And there's lots loops and yeah check. John john camille farrah. He's really awesome. Also join his sweetheart. He's a really big fan of the podcast so he might be tuning in even though it's like two. Am in berlin. Thank you for that music. John yeah the next question from gwen is i think is such a is it. It's a question that i i mean. I'll just tell everyone so. You don't like surprise you sandy he. How do you manage to consume so much news and not. I mean the comments is not get overloaded. But i will say like a not explode in the middle of the street. Wow who says that. I'm not exploding in the middle of westwood. La part of everything else that i do around activism is how i respond to the news and how frustrated the news can make me and how i need to feel as though i have some sort of power over the news because i do have some sort of the news and i do have sort of power over the way that society moves and over the way that the politicians or power i can have power over that and so when i get really down or feeling like intense rage within my chest i get to work. And that's a that's a lot of it. Another big piece of it goes back to nora and my history of organizing we. We really learned are tops in activism in the student movement. If you were active in the canadian student movement in the nuts people say that right off in the period the to whatever. I don't care in the if you were involved rate. Whatever if you were involved in the canadian soon we've been from the year two thousand two ten. That was a really intense year. Decade of organizing. I often people. People are often asking me like how do you how do you do so much. How do you have so much outfit. And i'm like oh for like. I don't know five or six years of my life. I worked like from nine. Am to three thirty. A m on a regular basis. That was just like my regular my regular day. No holidays never spent holidays at home. Except for maybe christmas. Because i was doing.

"I predicted that sooner or later the powers that be the provinces government are going to start using police forces to fine people or arrest people who are not following these ordinances that the way that the government has put them in places like this is your individual responsibility instead of making it as easy as possible for people to to follow the recommendations by for example implementing paid sick days and we see. I don't know if you've seen this news nora. A few days ago it came out that manitoba is employing a private security firm to assist in in doling out fines for people who are not following the public health mandates which is like gosh we are in a pandemic were in an economic crisis. People don't have the money to pay these fines. Number one number two the people who are breaking a lot of the people who are breaking these ordinances of not not going to work. When they're sick. Or properly social distancing. A lot of that has to do with the type of resources you have in your own life to be able to make those decisions no matter what we've been hearing on the news about. Oh man it's just it's a. It's a weird population over here. Who refuses to wear masks or it's youth who are continuing to have parties. The number one places where people are. We just said we weren't gonna talk about covid but here. We are the number one places where people are are. are getting infected in their workplaces. It's in their workplaces and so understanding. How power dynamics works and how. The government's liked to pass off the responsibility for making the best sorts of decisions are the most resource source sorts of positions decisions decisions that required resources to implement a lot of the times. Our governments pass off those responsibilities to an individual and then try to enforce it through the police. So we we could. We could tell that that was something was going to happen. Well also i mean what happens when police have nothing to do. They get violent. They get more violent. I mean a lot. If you've ever met a cop whose board maybe maybe not all of our listeners. Kind of experience with police. But we're here for you to let you know what happens. When a police officer gets bored he gets violent. Oftentimes right you mentioned manitoba. Anything manager was a really good example of of what happens when you have a government. That just doesn't care like at all right so they are triaging people in the parking lot of hospitals right. There's not enough space in emergency wards. And i live in quebec. Quebec has had the worst go of the pandemic and in the in the spring had in daily double digit deaths. It was really horrible. Couple of days were deaths actually went into the hundreds not not many But the thing that least government did was. They put money into into resources to hire as many orderlies as they could very quickly. They paid them to go to school. They didn't force them to pay to go to school. They didn't force them to pay back their there. They paid them to go to school. They have to go into the workplace force rate after then. They also built a temporary hospital with an arena. And so you look at. What's happening the inaction in manitoba. And it's like really you got you've got money to hire private security to harass people. But you don't you don't have any money for tents to create temporary sheltered hospitals. It's it's really unacceptable. I you know what we talked about. Covid as you said as. I said we're gonna tropical for tonight so we'll get to some of the questions but i think that especially as his pandemic goes on. I shared this on twitter today..

"How do you know what you know. one of the things about knowing how media operates in knowing what is being left out of the conversation means that you actually can anticipate things i mean. I think we are tagged a couple of times a day with people saying oh my god andy called this you call that. The conservative governments are not locking. People down you call that nothing was going to be coming out to ottawa. You call that. There wasn't going to be any support and that the serbs inefficient insufficient and and And people are being harmed by being forced to pay back all the all the aid that they've been given part of it is just paying attention and it's paying attention in a way that listens for what is being said. That's really really important. I was listening to the current this morning. As i always do for some reason even though you kinda hate it i mean it's my hatred level for the current is is very deep these days i have to say and and they had this entire conversation with three people one. Who's a pollster. so not sure. What is the point of listening about the polls right. They had a conversation about how we're not gonna have anybody get vaccinated because only two thirds of people are willing to have this non-existent vaccine. Okay not super useful. The second person was susan delacour. Who's the senior columnist for the toronto star. I'm not sure what that means. But her the in like not adding too the conversation. That third was a director of the institute call institute for the study of candidate. I think i think it's mcgill. I could be wrong. But the conversation about the pandemic and our people tired. And how do we convince. It's so hard to convince people to do the right thing. And i'm listening to this and thinking. Okay i go to the grocery store and every single person is wearing a mask lake. That is night and day from where we were last year. We managed to do that. We manage to change people's opinions in minds on how to stand away from each other. Don't get too close to lake. There has been massive changes to our behavior and the current focused only on personal responsibility. And so what happens. When you focus on personal responsibility we forget literally everything else about the pandemic. It's injuring people in workplaces injuring rish communities more disproportionately in relation to white communities. You know in recent stats. Canada data in british columbia communities that were not white were impacted by a mortality rate. That was ten times white communities in british columbia now that division. that's way way bigger than the rest of anywhere else in canada. I mean there are fewer deaths and so with fewer dots. You're going to have bigger stretches within the data. And i look at this and i think where is the. Where's the national conversation on this. And so when you're looking to see for these things and then they're missing and then you point them out that's how that's how you know that's how we know what we know. Is we know. We can anticipate that this is coming next. And of course with covid continuously come up again and again and again the other thing that helps us know what we know is looking at the world from a particular framework and i know that what informs me a lot of what informs the way that i look at a situation. It's understanding how power moves every decision. That's made the way that we live. Our lives is so so influenced by. Who's in power and how power is operating where power wants resources to go and so on and so way back way back early in the pandemic noren..

Maybe I know right? Well, what is it that we're talking about today? I don't know if you heard but covid-19 here. And so we thought it was time to do another covid-19. Yeah, no, I appreciate that too. But I also just want him to continue with I suck because you know, he could be doing more about it. But unfortunately, you know, it just does what he does best which is try to reflect the sentiment of the common person back to us and hope that they think that that means that needs doing a thing. Yeah, that's exactly it. That's all it is. But I digress yes covid-19. It it kind of hit me again. This week was I was diving into the into the data the public health agency of Canada. They put out a report that that specifically looked at Equity issues and how they impacted the the pandemic and they came to three broad conclusions about things that need to happen and and their first main conclusion was that there's a lack of data that we don't know enough to be able to have good public policy to try and fix the gaps within public health. And this obsession with data is very frustrating because while we don't have that we certainly have proximate data we have ways to kind of gauge. Well if it's hitting this community or if it's hitting this this workplace, you know, we know the people who work in this workplace and so we can make approximations that we that we otherwise might not be able to make it. We didn't know even anything about the people that are being hit and talk about this lack of data makes it sound as if we don't know, but we do know quite a lot about how covid-19. Has impacted specifically racialized and in more specifically black communities in this country and for the most Stark example of this. It comes from the really the main public health unit..

"Sober about the reasons that they won and not trying to understand this victory as thanks to the fact that the party was a little bit more moderate in its demands. We'll look I mean stability is should be the best grounds to push through some really progressive policy in the next four years. Yeah. I mean we're frustrated about the lack of big bold ideas well, now is the time to whip those out. Start implement. These massive changes that can really benefit our society because look like I don't know if you're feeling it but I'm just like men. When we can add a covet. Our world like meat deserve to have a fully different world, we deserve to be fully different place. where the the types of inequalities and risks that were exacerbated during the pandemic that we have a different approach that we solve those things that were at least working towards solving those things. So that should we enter some sort of pandemic situation again and I've been reading some articles that make it seem as though this is likely to happen more often now It's just like, okay. Well, then we should plan for the type of society that can hold us better when something like this happens and can hold us better even in the best of times we deserve a different. Orientation to the way that we relate to one another to the way that we relate to the economy. In the way that we take care of one another that was a great of today's topic, which is exactly this question. How do we imagine a different world? How do we force a different world and how do we? How do we convince politicians or force politicians into imagining or considering a different world? After last week's episode, we cut the Mikes and Sandy talked for quite a bit after about how really shocking in some ways are disappointing or surprising or confounding it is that the governments that we have provincial and federal governments are seemingly on able to operate within this crisis moment to make some serious changes that.

"Who is a woman who was killed by police? In her home. And it's interesting that she brought that up because she's talking about two two black women who've been killed saying that we can't talk about those things, even though Brianna Taylor is in the United States so i. You know another level that's fucked up. And, so she says she wants to do a pre interview with me anyway and so. I get on a call. Pre interview is a funny thing that is pretty much invisible to people unless the person being interviewed like well, I told your producer earlier. The said the answer this question why you asked me again. It's when the they're doing. The questioning of what the host is going to ask you before you're on the air and basically do like the interview as it's going to be just so that they can make sure that you're able to answer the questions that flows naturally and that you're like I guess the right fit, but usually by the time you get to the pre interview unless you're like. Unable to answer a single question. It's pretty much just making sure that what they want is going to be on the air, which is where you run into some problems in this story right and so we started to the pre interview I answered her questions about George Floyd and about Amy Cooper and. Very I would say expertly because I've done this so many times before also related it back to Canadian audience, because I think that's really important. She seemed to have no problem with that, even though she was very concerned about that at the beginning, and then we got to a point where we were talking about what's next. She asked me. What do you foresee the next steps? Like? What are what are people doing the campaign like? How are people feeling like what what needs to happen? Next in order to for these types of things to stop and for the Black Community feel safe whatever? I responded by saying that that was a very difficult question. Because you know, it just felt a lot of despair, and then I said, but if are truly serious about addressing this problem, now is the time to start talking about defunding the police and I wanted to talk about how. When. I'm mentioning defunding the police. The context in the city of Toronto as an example of how much funding goes to the police. To the detriment of other programs and I, talked a little bit about The the way that the police budget increases every year is always justified by saying you know. We need to bring the crime rates down, but it never had like the the the the reason that they justify. The increases is never borne out by the numbers they always refer to, and so you know. I was making a really cogent argument and she she interrupts me to say sorry I. Just want to make sure I heard you correctly. Did you say de-fund the police? Sounding, really surprised and I said well yes, and then started to continue to give to the numbers and the statistics. You know make the argument. And she interrupted me again and said okay well. I just want to let you know that. A lot of are using the story. Not sure if we're going to be able to have you on the air, because so many people you know we got to check out. All these people but. All Circle back to you if I can. And so. I got a response back on twitter at I think like just before nine pm. Pacific Standard Time I. Don't know where this is located, but if they are located in the east where producers who have contacted me I current before since I've been on a number of times. Like after midnight. Eastern time she responded to say sorry, we're not going to be able to have you. We found somebody else. Okay a lot of people. A Lotta people responded to that by saying Sandy Serie that that happened to you or CDC. You should have sandy on the air and it's like not the point, although I appreciate you feeling that way for me like I've been I have no like grand desire to like be on the CBC. That's not what that was about. You. Know raise. Career goal right now. I you know I don't mind it. At the thing that happened and I'm happy to be able to share my knowledge with. A broad audience, but that's not the point, the point of of me telling that story and why it's it's it's so bad so bad is because the CDC in the very narrow types of people that they have producing stories like these and many of those people being white, the producers behind the stories that you hear. Something that. Sounded to this woman who judging by her profile, picture on twitter is white. Down into this woman. Is Something incredulous? That could not be discussed. On, the radio, perhaps and the issues that were in that were local and relevant to a Canadian audience also were to. To. I don't know what. The justification would be but to something. To be discussed on the air at the current. and. In fact, the conversation of defunding the police is an old one in the black community. It's an old one. I would imagine in the indigenous community and imagine it's an old one in other communities have difficult interactions with the police all the time, but she wouldn't know that because the producing team isn't diverse enough or doesn't have enough people on it. Who Come from communities like mine? To to know that isn't. That isn't a weird conversation for a whole host of Canadians. And in fact, this is the time to be having it. The point of my tweets isn't to say. Put me on the air. The point of my tweets is to say the failing. A whole host of people. Refusing to have a diverse a crew of people who are on the production team
