Dick Morris on New Book, 'The Return: Trump's Big 2024 Comeback'
"You there's so much I want to talk to you about. Your new book is called the return. What's the subtitle? Trump's big 2024 comeback. Okay. Now, let's start there for folks who missed our previous conversations. You are convinced that Trump will be back in 2024. Tell us why, in a nutshell, because I want to talk to you about the other stuff. Well, I wrote a book in 2016 called Armageddon, how Trump can be Hillary. And it was pretty into it was before anyone else was saying that. And it laid out a game plan that Trump basically followed during 2016, very successfully. So this book is really the sequel to that. It's how we can get back in in 2024. And I believe that since I've written it much of it has come through, I think it's very clear that Trump is virtually guaranteed the Republican nomination. I think the when we were last together a couple of months ago Eric, which talks back to Santos and other possible candidates. But I think all that is pretty well saved it now. And everybody realizes it's going to be Trump. And his victory in election after election in the primaries really substantiates that.

Ron DeSantis Suspends Prosecutor for Refusing to Enforce Florida Law
"Ron DeSantis, who is a potential 2024 presidential nominee on the Republican side of the aisle, all the polls show him within striking distance of Donald Trump at the moment and we still have a couple of years to go before the actual primaries begin. Ron DeSantis in Florida is demonstrating full scale. This particular idea, which is that if there are people who work for your branch and they refuse to actually abide by the laws that you are supposed to enforce, these people should be fired. So controversy has now broken out over the fact that governor desantis has suspended a state prosecutor Thursday for pledges he made to decline prosecuting cases involving violations related to abortion and gender transition treatment. Rhonda Santos said that he had suspended Andrew Warren, a Democrat who served as the top prosecutor for the state's 13th judicial circuit in hillsborough county, which includes Tampa for neglect of duty. The Republican governor then tapped state judge Susan Lopez to serve as state attorney during the suspension, the state has 20 state attorneys. Here's Ron DeSantis announcing his firing of Andrew Warren. The constitution of Florida has vested the veto power in the governor, not an individual state attorneys. And so when you flagrantly violate your oath of office, when you make yourself above the law, you have violated your duty. You have neglected your duty and you are displaying a lack of competence to be able to reform those duties. And so today we are suspending state attorney Andrew Warren effective in media. So state attorney Andrew Warren put out a statement saying it's an illegal overreach that continues a dangerous pattern by Ron DeSantis of using his office to further his own political ambition. It spits in the face of the voters of hillsborough county, but twice elected me to serve them, not Ron DeSantis. The problem with that, of course, is that if you have a state attorney who simply refuses to prosecute crime, he is not doing his job.

"Here are some tools you can use to identify community needs to solve problems to create more economic development. That's the type of two way relationship that I really want to get. Director Santos, the last administration. And all of the controversy leading up to the 2020 census has, I mean, it's so polarized and it forced people more into into a place of darkness. I suppose in regards to the senses. So I mean, you're trying to kind of, I don't want to say catch up because you're actually trying to do something very futuristic, but you've got a lot of lead from the last administration and last decades. I mean, that lead is, how do you deal with that lead that is weighing you down, which is part historical and systemic. I do not view this as an issue of, oh my God, look what's happened in the past, I view it as where do we need to get into the future and how do we need to address these types of issues? So I'm looking forward because one of the greatest attributes and strengths of the Census Bureau is that it is a nonpartisan federal statistical agency. So I'll say it again. It's a nonpartisan federal statistical agency, which is the only reason that I was willing to join because the notion of scientific integrity, objectivity, is something and transparency. Not many organizations want to reveal like the good and the bad and the ugly about everything we do. We put that up front because that's part of our job that the American people deserve to hear and to see the strengths and limitations of all of our data products. And it's because of that scientific integrity and our non partisan nature that I think we have a really good starting point to take wherever we are right now and move forward and create really great ties to communities and great things. And that's what I'm going to be doing and I know that that's what the rest of the Census Bureau is going to be doing as well. Your excitement about being at the census is clear. Like we can feel it. We absolutely can feel it. I can see it. So I want to zoom out for a bit because when I think about the senses, I think the other word that comes to mind is white supremacy and systemic racism. And how that is a part of the institution. We have to acknowledge how people in this country were first counted right enslaved black people were basically counted only as three fifths of a human being and areas with large enslaved populations benefited from this in terms of federal funding and political power and representation. So again, you're excitement to be at the senses, but the question I'm going to ask you is, well, should the senses be dismantled? Should it be reassembled? How do we deal with the fact that close to four out of the 5 senior executives at the bureau identify as white, according to an NPR study from last year? So you're dealing with your big dreams in a powerful institution, but one that has, in this case, issues of white supremacy. Well, I think that pundits and others can characterize the Census Bureau as they might. I do know that because of things like the pandemic, we are at a wonderful inflection point where we understand the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion. And everyone I've spoken to wants to make progress in this regard, including myself. I think that it would be naive to think that any government or any society does not have issues with them with regard to historical racism and things of that sort. But in terms of where we go from now by leveraging this diversity equity and inclusion principles, we are recognizing the value not only for creating a more diverse workforce within the Census Bureau, but also questioning every single thing we do with regard to what we measure how we measure it, how relevant it is, and not only that, when we produce it, how valuable it is based on community engagement in getting folks reaction to results and things of that sort. So I'm very much, you know, I am absolutely not a pollyanna. I absolutely know that issues exist and they are cultural and they are baked into society. But that doesn't mean we can not have an obligation to try. That's what I'm doing. That's what we all have to do. And we have to do it together. And we need each other's support. Director Santos forgive me that I should know the answer to this question, but I don't. As the census apologized for the fact that the data from the census was used to imprison American citizens of Japanese descent and that they were targeted because of the use of the census data. Has there been a formal apology that I just didn't know about? Yeah, thank you for asking. That's a really, really important question.

"Would not have done it. So pretty much in every job I've ever taken, it's been a step up and I've said, oh my God, am I really going to be able to do this? And then I end up saying, well, look, just like I told you earlier, I'm going to try my best. I'm going to be myself and if I can contribute great and if I can't I'll be able to look at myself in the mirror and say I tried my best.

We're going to continue now with my conversation with director of the U.S. Census Bureau. Robert Santos. The interesting thing director Santos is that I have a lot of feelings about the census. With the census, it's actually something that has had an impact in my life in very interesting ways. And I kind of be honest with you and I'm sure you're not going to be surprised when I'm like, it's kind of a love hate relationship with the census. I think I remember as a little girl that Hispanic was a term that was created for the senses. By a Republican administration and my family did not like the Republicans, so I was like, I'm not Hispanic. I'm not a term that was created. So the census has this kind of, again, this impact. In fact, in 2010, when I form furo media, my own company, one of the things that made me believe that I could do it was data from the census. The data was that the Latino population growth from 2000 to 2010 had grown at 43%. So the census is an organization that we, I think, you, too, have had a love hate relationship with. Am I right? How do you see how the senses has impacted your personal life? Were you that guy who was thinking about the census? Like decades ago? Actually, decades ago, I was because I actually did projects for the census as a researcher. I served for 6 years on the advisory committee and said the same thing day one as I did 6 years later as I walked out the door in terms of advice. But I actually have not had a love hate relationship. I've had a love love relationship with the census my entire career because I recognize. I love love. You've been critical of it though, right? Because I love the Census Bureau. Are you really that person who's like, oh my God, I've always loved this. Are you that person? I am in the sense that I won it and we need it to improve and to be the best that it is. It's done some exceptionally great stuff in the past. All statistics have strengths and limitations. The limitations for decennial census historically have been ones where people of color are under counted. That's an issue. I've been critical before the census. And now that I'm director, we're looking at that and it's not like they don't look at it every day of our lives. We have experts who are trying their best to think of new creative ways to help with participation, et cetera. But I recognize that the data that the census provides is a vital part of our democracy. We can't improve communities, neighborhoods. We can't identify problems unless we can measure properly the state of the nation, who we are as a people. And it's in that context that I've always loved the Census Bureau because I admire them doing the best that can be done, even though it's not perfection, because that's what I was going to say. So that you've been up at night, not now just because you're the director of the census, but that in the past because the undercounting of, in particular, Latino Latina LatinX community, and frankly, and I know this is not a surprise to you. There's deep distrust now with any government institution in the United States. I mean, are those things that have kept you up at night? This whole notion of like the deep, deep undercounting that comes from one I suppose deep disorganization, but also deep distrust. I'm not prepared to say it keeps me up at night as much as it's a core issue that we need to address for the future. We need to recognize its existence. There are mistrust issues that have been historical, as well as more recent. And I would never have taken this job unless I thought I could help in that regard. So one of the primary agenda items for me or contributions that I want to make as director of the Census Bureau is to put a human face on the Census Bureau, we're not a bunch of mathematicians in our little offices, thinking big thoughts, we're actually human beings. We all have cultures. We all have issues. We all are human in nature. And I'm bringing that because I think I can, I'm going to outreach to communities, to neighborhoods, to stakeholders, to Congress, to local governments, to tribal communities. I want to get out there and I want to find out what those issues are with my staff, so the Census Bureau will be a part of all of that. And establish a continuous relationship with people and with communities rather than simply two years before a census saying, okay, it's time for us to have partnerships. We recognize that we need to have this continuously and I'm going to be upfront and center trying to work with everyone to establish a true two way relationship, not just to help us get participation, but also here is information that's useful for your specific community.

"Might be looked upon a little differently. But it's interesting that we've embraced the culture of the Mexican American community in San Antonio. I mean, I guess the reason why one of the reasons why I keep on asking about San Antonio is a city of the future and what it looks like. And you're right. I mean, you get out of the airport in San Antonio, 'cause I was just there. And there were these huge artists representations of latas de chipotles, chiles, chipotles, Alzheimer's, and I was like, only in San Antonio, will you see this? Like at the airport. And all of this is like, we're talking about San Antonio. And you know, as it relates to a kind of city of the future with a kind of sense of joy and hope and laughter, but you know this director Santos that actually the way the narrative goes right now in the United States today. Is that Latinos and latinas? Pose some kind of a threat. That we're majority not from the United States that we're coming here that we're new, so put those two things together for me. Well, it's not unusual for societies to have segments of the population that view individuals of different backgrounds to be threats when in fact it's very much of an opportunity. We could not survive without immigrants coming in and helping our economy in ways that otherwise the citizen population would not be able to contribute. So I very much value the diversity and I think that's one of our strongest points as a nation. And that's why I take so much pride in being able to advance the measurement and the counting and the learning about the rich diversity of our population and how it's getting more diverse. It's inevitable, as you said, it's coming and we need to find better ways to leverage and embrace that so that because it's going to improve society. But I bring a different perspective, I think, to research and the Census Bureau and sort of research more generally, social science research, and I believe that you have to bring your whole self. So I believe in diversity, equity, inclusion, and I think in order to be a better scientist, a better mathematician, a better statistician, you need to bring your culture to the table when you talk about and think about research about interpreting results about how you analyze it, even how you frame what it is that you're going to look at because that way you can actually learn more and gain more relevant insights into particular problems, whether it's hunger or housing or the pandemic and vaccination statuses or whatever. Okay, so director Santos, I actually want to take you back to those days when you were growing up as a kid in San Antonio. You were on the west side of the city. You said it was a very segregated city. And so you growing up, what was life like back then as a kid. Were you like, yeah, we're definitely the majority. We got this. We're going places or did you feel like, wow, this country's in the middle of a civil rights era, Latinos and latinas were not necessarily visible. So what was it? To be honest, I was a kid in the 60s, I was in elementary school in middle school, and I graduated in 72, and so I didn't, I wasn't able until I was maybe in grad school at Michigan to really connect the dots fully to realize the value and importance of being a Latino. And that's where between my college and graduate school years where I really embraced and understood the magnitude of the societal issues that we were dealing with. But back in when I was a kid, I was basically surviving. I was fortunate enough to go to parochial school for 12 years, that instilled some great values in me that I take with me and I use every day of my 40 year career as well as now my continuing career at the Census Bureau. And those values of trying to help people, those values of being inclusive and treating people fairly and trying to help society. Those are really important and they drive me and they've drive everything that I've done. You know, treating people with respect, regardless of race color, creed, religion, or whatever. So your mom and dad worked at the Air Force Base, right? Yes, there were some very fortunate to have civil service positions at Kelly Air Force Base while it was open. So this notion of ICU is my equal, a child of the civil rights era, where was that coming from? Was that your mom and dad? Ringing it home and talk to me a little bit about having a mom and dad in the air force because I mean, my dad was a scientist, medical doctor researcher, but we didn't talk that stuff over dinner, but your dad was asking you math questions. So take me a little bit back. Yeah. It's interesting. We had a really tightly knit family. And everything circulated around familia. And because everything revolved around family, our focus was we didn't necessarily at the dinner table talk about the inequities of society as much as talked about familia and how we help each other. And how we need to strive to get better education and get good jobs. I mean, that was what it was all about. And how could anyone blame familiars for talking about that in San Antonio who were Mexican American and whose grandparents had fled because of the revolution, the violence in northern Mexico that was going on to survive and they started a new life. And with almost nothing and my grandparents starting with jobs as gardeners or as cleaning people, we then grew and generation after generation improved. And that pursuit of the American Dream, that's really what was the focus of discussion. And me is a little kid with my brother who's no longer with us. Our focus was on trying to have as good of a time as we could, especially with my parents, both be enough to work in us being like key kids. So we got into all kinds of mischief. Okay, well, I need to know what mischief looks like in west San Antonio then. Give me a couple of examples. What were you guys doing? Well, it was mischief in the sense of, you know, we'd have mud ball fights in San Antonio where the back of the house was. We just throw water in the dirt. Make mud balls and come at it. And the back of the house would be covered with mud balls that stuck to the side of the house, or we'd grab our bicycles, and we were like what 8, 9, ten years old? No, I'd say ten 11 or 12. And then head off from Woodland Lake area to pass downtown to hemisphere where it was being built so we could watch the tower going up. Or go out to the airport and watch the jets come in. And that's really long distances for kids in the middle of the summer with no water. We just stop at gas stations. But we would do crazy, crazy stuff like that. It's kind of incredible that kids get into all that mischief and survive, right? It's kind of amazing. What's really important, though, is if you combine that sense of adventure with the values that were instilled during the schooling that I had, it's those two things that have propelled me to take chances and risks where maybe other folks

"Congress. You need it for Congress for districting. You need it for appropriations. Citizenship has been on that thing most of the time for many, many years. A citizenship question had not been on the sentences for several decades. And of course, citizenship status is not used for redistricting. And after several lawsuits, the Supreme Court ultimately blocked the citizenship question from being on the 2020 census. But the damage had already been done. And there was an even further gap in trust with communities across the United States. The weaponization of the U.S. Census isn't something new. We've seen it with the founding of this country when enslaved Africans were counted as three fifths of a person, and later when Japanese Americans were imprisoned and tracked down by using the senses. So on today's episode, I have a conversation with director Robert Santos about his new role. His love for his hometown of San Antonio and the complicated history of the U.S. Census. Director Robert Santos hello and thank you so much for being with me here today on Latino USA. I was ready to climb a ladder and do the interview upside down if I could have the opportunity to be a part of this experience with you because I've always valued everything that you've done on your program. Oh my gosh. Well, thank you. I am having a moment. Did the director of the U.S. senses just say to me that he values the work that I've been doing and knows my work? I really am having a moment. Every week we listen to your program and the job you're doing to help the United States understand the value of our rich diversity of Latinos I think is amazing. Thank you director Santos for being for being a supporter of our work and knowing our work it really means a lot. And I think I'm going to start there because if I think about my experience as a Latina in the media over the last 30 years, I think that people always saw me kind of like, oh, here she goes again, bringing up Latinos and latinas. And I think, I mean, I'm not a big mathematician or that is Titian like you. But I can read a demographic chart. And I could see that the Latino population was just increasing, and so for a lot of my career people have kind of been like, oh God, here she comes talking about Latinos again. I always found it very interesting that people felt like it was a bother or a threat or a problem instead of just like, no, but we're just kind of looking at data. And I'm wondering if you're kind of having that same sensation in your life right now. Yeah, thank you for offering that perspective because actually I've been having that type of interaction my entire career. I've had episode after episode where I was the sole Latino in a room of research decision makers who maybe hadn't realized that when they come to the table and they frame research questions or they perceive problems that they want to help society solve, they do it with their cultural lens. I've had many instances where I basically say excuse me if you do that, you actually will be doing harm and not good, even though the statistical design and the research design was pristine. However, if you frame the question the wrong way or you capture information in a way that doesn't really reveal what's going on or interpret it by talking to people in the community to help get it better understanding, you can end up actually doing more harm than good. And the other thing I need to know director Santos, I'm sorry. I just need to know. I know you used to have a ponytail. Do you still? It's growing. I was asked to be considered for the nomination, and I decided to do it. I did it out of, you know, got a son. I wanted to help my country. And I believed I could offer something as a Latino from my rich perspective cultural perspective and research perspective. But the one thing that I decided is that I have to be myself. And myself is Santos with the ponytail and so I'm going to be myself and try to do the best I can to help the Census Bureau to help the American people. And if it works great and if it doesn't, I tried. I think it's really cool. I just want to say because when you're rocking it, it works. And two, I just think you're saying something about just having to be yourself, right? So recently I was in San Antonio, that's the city of where you were born and raised. I was at Trinity university, giving a lecture and I love San Antonio. It's one of my favorite cities because when I've been going to it ever since a little girl 'cause I was always driving through Texas to get from Chicago to Mexico. It's a majority Latino city in the United States in the state of Texas. So yeah, not as a kid from San Antonio, but as somebody who understands the power of the work of the census and demography and the picture of the future of the United States. I mean, is San Antonio, in fact, the future of what the United States looks like. And what does that mean to you? Well, there are many, really interesting things about San Antonio. The fact that it is always had a very prominent place for Mexican Americans in particular, but Latinos more generally as being part of the city, yet when I was growing up, it was pretty effectively segregated. And even in some of the Latino communities, I lived on the site of the Woodland Lake that wasn't considered the best part. And so if I went into the other side where there were folks were better off, I

Then just a few weeks later, Santos went before the Senate Homeland Security committee for his confirmation hearing. It's an honor and I'm humbled to appear before you today as the nominee for the director of the Census Bureau. I'd like to thank the president and secretary raimondo for the trust. They have placed in me with this nomination. Santos is super proud about being born and raised in the barrios of San Antonio, Texas. He has served as president of the American statistical association. Vice president and chief methodologist at the urban institute, along with other big roles throughout his career, Santos has more than 40 years of experience in survey research and his specializes in quantitative and qualitative research design. I wouldn't be here today without the enduring support of my family. At age 18, I married my wife adela, and we've now been married 48 years.

So in this poll, when you say dead, he trumps at 53 Biden's at 47. Correct? In your poll? Well, statistically it's insignificant. So it's really 50 50. Right. Now, were you shocked or what did you think? To be honest, Stephanie, I was stunned. I mean, there was a couple things that really surprised me, but the fact that they were still in a dead heat, despite all of Trump's issues, and really despite all of Biden's issues, you would think that one would weigh heavier on the other. I think the key here that I found that I was so stunned by as it relates to the Republicans is the fact that in spite of all Trump's issues, he still crushing Mike Pence and Rhonda Santos in a theoretical matchup. It's like, what are these people thinking? It's just pretty stunning to me when I look at this result. I think the other part that's really quite interesting from a Republican point of view is that Biden and Trump are running even in my poll. The premise poll, but what we found is that in spite of the fact that Trump is beating Pence and descent is so badly, on the other hand, he's actually performing up those two candidates in a theoretical matchup or actually performing pretty well against Biden. They're slightly ahead of him. Statistically, it doesn't matter, but it just shows that, hey, if the Republicans would get their act together, put the right candidate up, they might be able to win in 24.
Charlie Kirk: Tampa Is Where Turning Point USA Began
"I ask you this question every time we get together. And I'm sorry to ask it for the 99th time. But when you were putting turning point together in your parents garage, could you have ever envisioned that as you look around and see this Tampa convention center and all of the booths and the security and the kids and the could you have ever dreamed it was going to turn out like this? No, and it's actually amazing being in Tampa because Tampa Florida is really where turning point USA kind of came to life in some sense. I could tell the full story and I wrote about it in the book, but this was where the Republican National Convention was in 2012. And I flew down here, no money, no connections, no idea what I was doing. I couldn't find a hotel, couldn't rent a car. There was a hurricane that first Monday you might remember. I was here. I remember? Oh, yeah. I interviewed you, I think. Yeah, and I was just scrapping, hustling, trying to, you know, just trying to make things happen. And so the answer is no, but that's what's so beautiful about America is that you take a small risk and you grow and I thought our events were a big deal when we had 500 students there and you were at some of those events. Now we have 5006 thousand students. We have the top speakers and the whole movement that are coming to Santos and Trump and Holly and Cruz and gutfeld just blows you away. And it really is the lord's blessing as well. We're just instruments for his will. And we're doing everything we possibly can though. It's a beautiful country, and we want to do our part to say that.

Tracy Robinson: The Origins of 'The Matter of Life' Film
"You must be, you feel like you're right in the middle of the storm right now with this roe V wade debate and the movie is so timely. It's going to be in theaters in what they call those fathom events may 16th and 17th, the movie addresses the issue of abortion through science, philosophy and history. And I love what you said and I've borrowed your phrase clarity kills controversy. Tell me about the evolution of this important movie and why it was so important for you to get behind it and direct it. Well, the origin of this movie started back in 2016, 6 years ago, and my background's in film and video production. And I was commissioned on and off to do testimonial videos and promotional videos for a pro life pregnancy resource center in California. And I had never heard of a pregnancy center before, but I really admired what they were doing to help women in their time of need. And but I wasn't very concerned about the abortion issue. I didn't think it was a big deal in the grand scheme of things. I was pretty much in the mushy middle and apathetic. And it wasn't until my Friends at the pregnancy resource center invited me to an apologetics night and the topic was going to be the case against abortion. And I thought, well, I'll go and check it out and see what my pro life friends are talking about. And in less than two hours, the speaker Alan lehmann of Santos, he gave a clear concise argument for the full humanity of the unborn child from the moment of conception. And the logic and the clarity and just the just simplicity of this message really struck

Dinesh Speaks With a Real, Live Canadian Trucker
"Guys, I've talked off and on in the podcast about the truckers convoy and the truckers protest both in Canada and in the United States, but I haven't had someone on who actually drives a truck who's been part of all this, and can sort of give a firsthand account of it, so I'm delighted to welcome Gerard de Los Santos, he is a Canadian trucker, although originally from South America. He got his license for trucking 1993, he's been a trucker since 1995, so really over 25 years. Hey Gerard, thanks for joining me. Am I right? It looks to me like you're in your truck. Good morning, thank you for having me. The program. Yes, I am in my truck. Coming back actually from Ottawa. It's going to be it has been quite some time being there and a longer than what we thought. And just halfway back home, I will say. You said you're in Saskatchewan. Where are you making your way toward? Where are you going? I am going to saskatoon. Then amundsen, and then my way down to Calgary. Okay, terrific. Now Gerard looks like you've been in Canada a long time. You've been driving a long time, but you're originally from South America. Say a word about your background. Yes. I am from Uruguay. I came to Canada on the 89 April 89, so it's going to be April now. It's going to be 33 years that I'm here. In 95, I got my license and started driving 93. I actually got my license, started driving 95. And being doing truck you never change. Car hauling, this is my speciality, what I like to do. And do it to those, all this mandate was getting more difficult every day to deal with everything. And we decided to I decided to join the convoy and ask for freedom, basically. The only thing we were asking was freedom of choice. And to open the federal mandate to be able to cross the border to the United States.

"That they put in the litter box. That's right, because no one wants their home to smell like kitty litter, especially as it gets colder and we spend more time inside. And that's why now's the perfect time to switch to pretty litter. Pretty litters ultra observing crystals trap odor instantly. I got it in my litter box right now. The cats use it. I don't smell a thing. It's lightweight. It's easy to scoop. A lot of odor protection and you know what? On top of all of that, it's got a little extra bonus and then it tells me that Wally and are healthy. That's right. They're crystals as up to a month, which means less scooping and fewer trips to the garbage can. And hey, if your garbage cans outside, you don't want to go outside in the cold and drop off some dookie, some cat dookie. No. And otherwise, garbage cans inside, you want that smell to be contained, baby, and that's what pretty little does. Pretty litter super light crystal base also minimizes mess and dust, your allergies will thank you, which is a big deal for me. You don't get that dust floating around. You don't get that tracking. It just works. And here's the coolest thing about pretty litter. And here's the coolest thing about pretty litter, I said it earlier, it changes colors to help detect early signs of potential illness in my cats Wally and Irma who I love dearly, including urinary tract infections and kidney issues. And you know, that's important to me Wally and in my mind still babies. They're turning 6 this year, though. And you gotta watch out for them. I want these two to be around for the long haul, so their health is important to me. And pretty letter gives me peace of mind knowing that they're okay. And guess what? Pretty little ships for free to my door in a small lightweight bag. That's right. I never run out of it, and I don't have a huge container of litter taking up space and stinking up my place. It's a win win. So make the switch to pretty litter today like me. It's just good sense.

Well, I don't want to spoil anything, but there might also be a finger pointing at euphemia book and also Kenneth Branagh who directed this film, his characters hercule poirot, poirot. Poirot. That's right. Yes. Poirot. I want to see more adventures of poirot. I think we're going to get them. I think they're going to keep making them. Ronald likes directing him. He likes starring in them, he likes playing the character and Agatha Christie is evergreen. Death in a jail cell about Epstein's murder. Open and check cases if you ask me. Let's not investigate that. While poirot is on the side of the thing is fine here, nothing happens. Everything looks fine. It says The Washington Post reported. It's a suicide.

Bengals, Bengals and let's get our let's get our guest in here. Maybe we can talk Super Bowl. I actually don't know if our guest is a sporter at all. We're gonna find out with us today and actor and comedian from Spanish I keep presents and Netflix's gentefied, Carlos Santos is here hi Carlos. What's up? What's up? Carlos, did you feel yourself aged during the speed man drop? A lot of feelings that just kept thinking of the pala Abdul song opposites attract. There was just a lot of I was wondering, was he singing it in a different voice? Was it just Taylor? Was that just you? Or was there different people? Because he'd be like, then why does the other thing and then it was like, no, I have a deeper voice. It felt like different people or he was just doing a deeper voice. I thought he was taken on an affectation for different parts of the song. Got it. Because also, I would just say like, you know, inferring from that track that was put together, I don't think this guy has a lot of friends. So I know who he's asking to help. Taylor, it's Taylor. I was calling him. Taylor Taylor. Taylor sorry, but you know it's true. Yeah, you know it's true. You're listening to this podcast. Carlos before we were starting, you were talking about you had some success with your Fitbit. We were talking a little bit of fitness on the podcast via the move. But you've been using this Fitbit, which I believe are our producer Emma also has. And that's worked really well for you, health wise. Beverly changed it up last year at the beginning of 2021, I had like a month to get ready for a show for the fight for the second season. And unfortunately, I had amassed a lot of eating hours during the pandemic if you want to call it that. And then on top of that I went home to see my family, so on top of that it was holiday eating on top of the pandemic eating. And when I got back, January 5th, I was like, what? So I ended up losing 20 pounds. And I don't even have a lot of time. But it was very sustainable because what I did is I got, I also got which I didn't tell you. I got a food insensitivity test. So I started with that in November. So I figured out all the things that were bloating me and figure out all the things that so I did an experiment so I took all that stuff out and I just wanted to go hard on the paint just for that month. And then but I think the game changer for me was finally having a relationship with how much I'm burning versus how much I'm meeting, which I didn't have before. And that changed it because what I did is I worked really hard for the first two months of the year. And then I coasted. It was so easy to maintain the weight that I lost for the rest of the year. Wow. Just by kind of coasting and I did it enough and I tracked the food and I tracked the macros and I did all that stuff. And every day I was learning something new I absorbed I just went on YouTube and I learned a lot of stuff. So I just basically did it to myself. What essentially you would do when you train with somebody, right? Like a trainer would tell you to do these things. I was like, no, I want to know what's up. So I started learning about working out more specifically like what to do. 'cause it was still everything was shut down, so I had like free weights and I just needed to, and I did it. I got in shape. And then, but the craziest thing is that I've always, which I also told you earlier, it's always been yo yoing for me. In terms of like getting in shape or not, but this is the first year and going into my second year of the best shape that I've been consistently, which I haven't had to do any crazy diet or crazy anything. I've just been kind of like chilling now where we're now over the holidays. I just gained like 7 pounds, which would have been disastrous 'cause I kept working out, but I also didn't limit myself. So now I just say it's bulking. I'm bulking, guys. Right. You said you said you stopped on January, or you got back here on January. I got back from I went to see my family for holiday break and then I got back in the first week of January. So then I waved myself I was like, oh, this is not terrible. So now I've lost like 6 or 7 pounds, but from working out. So it's like body recomposition. And so I just took January this month again to kind of re up, but now with the knowledge that I've met. So it's just been really successful. I'm really excited to tell everybody about it. Because it's something that's very sustainable, which I didn't have before. That's rad. And that's the dream. January 5th to the doughboys, by the way, is kind of like a Christmas Eve. Special day. Eagerly waiting the next morning. Can't sleep. Carla, so wait, so what specifically are you doing?.

"Dows are fascinating to me. They have been for a very long time because of what feels like supreme inevitability of something like this emerging. And by that I mean, something that is more formal than a Facebook group, but isn't an LLC with a bunch of members governed by bylaws. That plus just if you start to look around at how many parts of human experience, roughly come down to we'd like to coordinate a set of resources towards something in some way, you know, it's actually a phenomenal array of different things that we do that roughly come down to that. And so, you know, it seems kind of inevitable. But I guess the interesting thing is, I guess that the question is, what do you see as kind of the landscape of experiments? And I don't necessarily mean specific attempts, but is everything that calls itself a Dow the same thing? Are they all right now kind of fundraising coordination dows or are we starting to actually see some different attempts at different approaches to what a Dow can be? I think you are. It's early, but Dallas can be as more and more people come into the space that are interested in entities and gaming. You have guild, for instance.

"Rings of fire by Craig Santos Perez, Honolulu, Hawaii. We host our daughter's first birthday party during the hottest April and history. Outside my dad grylls meet over charcoal, inside my mom's team's rice and roast vegetables. They've traveled from California where drought carved trees into tender, Paradise is burning. When our daughter's first fever spiked, the doctor said, it's a sign she's fighting infection. Bloodshed surges with global temperatures, which know no borders. If her fever doesn't break the doctor continued, take her to the emergency room. Air strikes detonate hospitals in Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, South Sudan. When she crowned my wife said it felt like rings of fire. Volcanos erupt along Pacific fault lines sweltering heat waves scorch Australia forests in Indonesia are raised for palm oil plantations. Their ashes flock, like ghost birds to our distant rib cages. Still, I crave an unfiltered cigarette, even though I quit years ago and my breath no longer smells like my ground paws overflowing ashtray. His parched cough still punctures the black lungs of cancer and denial. If she struggles to breathe, the doctor advised, give her an asthma inhaler.

"Rings of fire by Craig Santos Perez, Honolulu, Hawaii. We host our daughter's first birthday party during the hottest April in history. Outside, my dad grills meat over charcoal inside my mom's steam's rice and roasts vegetables. They've traveled from California where a drought carves trees into Tinder, Paradise is burning. When our daughter's first fever spiked, the doctor said it's a sign she's fighting infection. Bloodshed surges with global temperatures, which no no borders. If her fever doesn't break, the doctor continued, take her to the emergency room. Air strikes detonate hospitals in Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, South Sudan, when she crowned my wife said it felt like rings of fire. Volcanos erupt along Pacific fault lines sweltering heat waves scorch Australia forests in Indonesia are raised for palm oil plantations. Their ashes flock, like ghost birds to our distant rib cages. Still, I crave and on filtered cigarette, even though I quit years ago, and my breath no longer smells like my grandpa's overflowing ashtray, his parched cough still punctures the black lungs of cancer and denial. If she struggles to breathe,.

"You're gonna start noticing. I love that you. You're constantly filling evidence folders for like things are shitty things are like what. What are you putting in your evidence folder. Pretty much An and it's not just like you know what you're picking it's like you're you're training your brain to look for that stuff in my podcast. I interview this. Fantastic guests rosca. Who's a- poet an sas to. Is this a book called the book of delights and he decided that for every day for a year after his birthday he would write an essay about something that delighted him and he talks about how at first he was like really worried. Like mega. really gonna find things that really delight me and he said that you know even just a weekend like he'd kind of tuned his mind to find. These things has a walking down the street. Like oh that dude. St shirt is delightful. I like oh that cow on the street is delightful like he just his because he just kind of shifted his perception and tuned his mind more towards the good things and the bad things are brain's evolutionary are naturally tuned towards the bad things. Make sense you want to see the tiger. That's gonna jump out at you but we can control that tuning and just by like taking some explicit work to pay attention to the things. We're grateful for to the things that delight us to the good stuff out there. So yes ross. Gay the book of delights and again. Checkout neil has reaches work at his awesome allergy episode. Another fun project started private twitter just for yourself and chronicle delights of your own. Were a private instagram account. Or something also. I should note that in recording this episode. The internet dropped out a few times. So i had to email dr santos a new link during it and she has an auto reply message explaining that she may not right back in. It explains that she gets more than one hundred emails a day and it reads in part quote keeping up with that many questions. Slash requests meant that. I was hurting my own time. Affluence and having less time for the important projects i really should be prioritizing and so i am currently trying my own personal well-being experiment. I'm gonna try to practice what i preach and reduce the amount of time i usually spend on male. Thanks for your understanding. As i try not to overcommit and protect myself from burning out. I love her. Totally solid major props for walking her talk. She is the best and in respecting her time. We wrapped up last listener question. I saved it because it was juicy. Oh it's so juicy bailey. Rickets wants to know. How do we find a balance between being happy and living in the moment while acknowledging all the hurt and suffering going on in the world essentially guilt over being happy. When you know that there's a lot of bad shit out there how do we do it. Yeah yeah tough. I mean this is like a really real one right because there's a lot of bad stuff. The air right now know. Structural racism mobile global. You know like the list goes on. So i mean i think one thing that helps me is recognizing that if if i want to be the kind of person who's ally for all that stuff all the yucky stuff in the world who wants to have the resilience to fix it. I'm not going to be able to do that if i'm incredibly anxious and overwhelmed and burnt out. I'm going to be able to do that best. If i'm really unhappy state if i'm really kind of feeling good like if i kind of have put my own oxygen masks on first right and in fact there's evidence that so many of the things we were talking about that are parts of a happy life help for doing hard. Things might my favorite one. Is that people who are grateful are better at what's called self regulation. They're better at doing the hard thing today to help their future. Self whether that's saving for retirement or eating healthier or you know putting work into hard scary problems like that just require a lot of hard scary work and so for me. It's made me feel like if. I want the world to be a better place. I can't afford to be down in the dumps freaking out about it. I really need to put energy into doing these practices for myself so that i'll be you know. Hopefully one of the people that has the bandwidth to help with some of this stuff so far from feeling guilty. I feel like we might want to feel guilty for the opposite thing right. You know do what we can to kind of fix things. It really does require not just working on these structures but working on our emotions so that we have the bandwidth to fix those structures. That might be messed up that just i'm sure gave so many people permission to pursue happiness. Who feel guilty about it. And i'm by so many people. I mean me specifically but no that's really helpful Last two questions asked before we go worst thing about your job. Worst thing about being a new model dala just and the thing i there's lots and lots of good things but you know if i have to shift towards negativity i would say the the hardest thing is that you know. They're the one of the things. I really try to fit. Engine is is this phenomenon of time. Affluence this objective sense. That i have a lot of free time and being a happiness grew especially in an age where. There's a lot of bad stuff going on in the global pinto make. It keeps me pretty busy because a lot of people want advice. A lot of people want help. And that means. I have to put a lot of work into protect my So the hardest thing is protecting my time In the midst of everything else going on. I can totally understand that. I just got your auto apply. That was like yo. I get like a hundred miles a day. Thank you so much. I gotta stick to my principal review. And that's hard right. Because i get into my imacs. I'm like oh that listener. Has this really cool thing to say here. That student has this really cool question. But i also know that if i answer all those that means. I'm not spending time with the people i care about. And i'm not just having time to meditation exercise so it's hard prioritizing the right stuff but time affluence is definitely something i need to work on.

"Happy to ask your questions for dr santos okay arielle. Reagan wants to know. Do animals experience happiness. Are they happier than people. Yeah it's really hard to ask animals about their happiness. Because you know. I can do the self report measure with you. It's harder to do that with a banana slug or bonobos or something physiologically we know they go through a lot of the same states as humans but hard to know for sure if those physiological states correlate with this subjective state. I only know that you had the subjective seat because you tell me and so even though everything we can objectively look at like suggests that it you know we were feeling the same thing Subjectively it's really hard to know for sure So one thing. Some scientists try to observe is play behavior like hopping around running chewing on stuff. Tiny poodle angel. She rubs her bud against off like a tire or my shoe. That's her version of typing. Hashtag blast or graziano wants to know. Can anxious people be happy. I think anxious people can definitely be happy. I think there are a lot of strategies we can use to regulate allow our anxiety. I think part of the problem with anxiety is that we try to run away from it that we like you try to avoid at all costs but that's yet another emotion that i think we can kind of sit with like feeling really anxious right now. It's of ten. You can sort of surf that anxiety urge and get to the other side. Then do some work to sort of nurture yourself so i think you can be anxious and happy just like you can be sad and happy and you can be angry and happy. You know to have a truly happy. Life requires experiencing all those emotions but finding ways to kind of navigate them so they don't take over Oh that's really well fed aden paco and meghji wanna know. Is it flimflam. That smiling actually makes you happier or is that a true fact megs laughing and a lot of other folks looking at you patrons say see demos wanna one alexis wallich and ashley herbal water. No can you fake it till you make it. There's a lot of feedback that we get from other people's emotions From our own feedback from our own actions. You know so pretending you're happy acting like you're happy can often put you in a happy state in part because it puts the people around you and a happy state and we know that there's A lot of evidence for what's called emotional contagion right just like if i'm around happy people i'm just gonna catch the emotions of that happy person and the reverse right if i'm around those negative. Nellie is like that's going to. I'm going to catch that too. And so there is a kind of fake it till you make associated with the people who have the emotions that you want to experience. It's a powerful way to kinda use your situation your social environment to build in wellbeing. Is there anything you can do for a friend who is feeling really unhappy to help them out as well. Yeah i think you know the the way to do it. I think really is to try to bring some of these practices in naturally right. I mean first of all give that friends social connection right just the very act of you talking to them being around them. Spending time with them is going to improve their well being. I think you can also bring your attitudes of that. Are positive right. You know if you're expressing things that you're grateful for you know if you're savoring things and feeling a little bit present you know that that kind of thing is naturally going to rub off on them because of emotional contagion because of behavioral contagion. But the biggest thing you can do is i think. Check in check in and allow yourself to be present and be there for someone who needs you really powerful way to use your happiness to positively affect others so if he were think why would i check up on someone. I don't know how to fix things. Don't worry just be alive. And in their orbit and listen or tell them about how lizards have to dick's. That's what i do. Patrick javarani says first question. Asker wants to know happiness and the microbiome connection. What can we do to improve. Microbiome is their connection. What's the deal. Yeah great great question and it's something that we don't have that much good data on yet You know everything. We know suggests that microbiome affects all kinds of stuff. It would be surprising. I think in some ways if it didn't affect our wellbeing in our happiness. But you know this is just a new area work where we're learning new things all the time and we don't really have a great verdict yet but if you wanna through research money onto something that i think we'll be really telling in the next ten years of happiness science. I think microbiome might be a spot that nice. You can just get in on poop on the ground floor. Yes thing the top samples from very happy people. I'm i'm in. I think you literally can buy poop like on the black market for your own at home. Like fecal transplants. Ps of course. I looked this up and getting an enema. With someone else's poop it's called fecal microbiology transplantation and in the microbiology gut by episode from november twenty. Eighteen we go into detail about how our microbiomes are suffering from processed foods and artificial ingredients and overuse of antibiotics for things like viral infections. That don't need antibiotics. So given that up to ninety percent of our serotonin is synthesized in our simmering. Pu filled guts. Diy fm ts to yourself. Fecal microbiology transplantations. As they're called they're getting more and more common as doctors are still reluctant to shove up our butts even when we asked nicely so according to an american journal of gastroenterology article called understanding the scope of do it yourself fecal transplant eighty two percent of folks who tried it felt better afterwards and ninety two percent of those new their stool donor. Who i don't know. I guess you find by asking your friends who seems chill and has good poops so you can ask dr screen donor sample and see if they'll do it.

"Daily activities or anxiety. So powerful that you're experiencing panic attacks. That's a sign that you might need professional help. All the heck's i mentioned are good. You know once you get out of that acute state the heart attack person as soon as you get out of experiencing cardiac arrest. The next step is going to be back to so some of those preventative measures. Once you get out of the hospital. And i think the same thing is true for clinical parts of these diseases. You might also want to go back to experiencing gratitude and meditating in these things but it is important to get acute care if the mental health situation. You're in is acute okay. That's great to know for people. You may know when you hit this level because your friends will say. I think you should see a doctor dude. Which is what happened to me. When i was going through the hardest parts of my life and also had a couple medical conditions that turned my brain into bees. The doctor was like well. Shucks you need more than a car. Wash let's check under the hood their buddy but yes. What is the technique for sloughing off persistent crusty muddy feelings. When it comes to things like gratitude and meditation how much effective like. How much can we get away with. If we're feeling real down in the dumps but we're low on motivation. How much gratitude is enough. How much meditation. How much exercise. It's yeah i mean. I think you know one of the nice things about this being all of this being evidence based is that the allows you to kind of do your own experimentation right. The answer of how much meditation you particular podcast listener need might depend on kinds of things right and so the key is to sort of try it out one thing we know though is that sometimes it takes less than you really expect. Take something like gratitude. There's evidence that just scribbling down three things that you're grateful for every day that can be enough to significantly boost your wellbeing in as little as two weeks like doesn't take that much time there's evidence for example from heavy cobras at yale that even as little as ten minutes of meditation a day can really start to improve your well being in some mental health symptoms right for more on this. Feel free to peruse paper such as brief. Mindfulness meditation improves attention in novices. And let it be. Mindful acceptance down regulates pain and negative emotion both published by dr headache over so scientists in lab coats have dedicated the research and their grant money budgets to proving that yes. Meditation does help. it's free. It takes less time than making a sandwich we can do this. Let's do this and so it doesn't take long what it takes us some consistency and so my instinct is like because sometimes we hear these tips like all right. I'm going to drop everything and do you know like seventy hours of meditation i. It's not enough. Just start really small. Allow yourself to do these baby steps and tested out. How are you feeling. Are you feeling better is it. Making is making things better. Is it making things worse and so allowing ourselves self compassion to engage in these baby steps. I think is really important. I think that's so true. Whenever i get out of the habit of running which is now i'll go do a lap at the reservoir but i'll have to just tell myself the first couple of times i'd do it the first month long as i. Just get round reservoir even crawling. It's fine you know like expect to yourself to get back into running at a certain pace or doing things whole hog can be so intimidating. You just want to give up right away. Yeah and i think you know. We're not good at understanding the amount of self compassion. We need to motivate ourselves. I think again. This is the spot where i think our minds get it wrong. We think the right way to motivate ourselves is to become these horrid drill instructors and link yell at ourselves in our head in a way that we'd never speak to a friend or a child or someone we cared about hopefully right but that kinda just doesn't work. That convinces us that. It's not good to try. We end up setting standards lower. We ended up procrastinating. More self compassionate turns out can actually allow you to engage in new habits better and more effectively and with less procrastination. That's not our theory. We go for the drill sergeant approach. Yeah we'd be better off kind of mindfully paying attention to what's going on and recognizing that we're just human in giving ourselves a little bit more of a benefit of a doubt. I never want to obey dick. Who's yelling at me. So why do i do that to myself. And we're like you know. The dinkiest of dick's is often in our head right. You know. it's like wait. I would never say that. That thing i just said to myself in my head i would never say that to another human. Why am i talking to myself that way. Yeah i would. I would want to slap my own self. I thing to you know like yeah. I'm the the hardest unresolved more than i would ever tolerate somebody else which is so funny that we do that but You mentioned the term positive psychology before. And i'm so curious about that. Because i feel like i can't tell if it's flimflam or not that positive. Psychology is totally like a legit practice or is it something along the lines of like toxic positively at all costs where what is positive psychology. What's what do scientists think of it. Yeah i mean the the term positive psychology begin when you scientists marley seligman who invented the fielder saw is the founder of the field. Really had this intuition that so much of psychology is about you know what he called kind of below be slide right like i'm trying to cure depression. I'm trying to cure anxiety or something like that. But he realized that we didn't have as he called it a good science kind of going above baseline there's baseline and then there's feeling like you're flourishing. You know then. There's getting social connection. Life feeling really president experiencing joy and so he really christened this name of this field positive psychology in order to focus on those things but i think positive psychology gets the wrong route. I think there's this idea that like we have to only be positive. But you know if you look at what the research is really showing. There's a lot of evidence that are real true. Happy life successful life. A healthy life involves experiencing.

"Or like exercise. It can be a few weeks before these habits really take root and you start to feel better so don't give up give it a few weeks especially since it's free. Are you feeling lazy android. Don't worry a lot of us. Feel that way when we start doing something that will keep us alive and happy. So i asked dr santos for us. Why am i like this. Why do you think from some sort of evolutionary standpoint. When we're bummed out it's harder to do the things that would make bummed out. Yeah super frustrating like the mind is designed in like a really stupid way. We know this you know from other evolutionary studies but definitely when it comes when it comes to happiness. That's the case in one of my upcoming episodes of the happiness lab I talk about this really stupid design feature of the brain where there's just a different like a whole different brain system that codes for what we like. You know so the things we really enjoy versus the things that we want the things that were motivated to go after that we crave the simplest example. Is like you know sometimes when i'm having a bad day at work. I dislike crave like plopping down and watching netflix. Or like eating a cupcake or having like a huge glass of wine. But like if you actually look at how much i would like that the net flicks is gonna make me pathetic and the cupcakes going to give me the jitters in the wine. I'm not gonna sleep very well. Like ultimately the liking has this disconnect from the wanting and you get it in the reverse direction to like. I don't after a long day at work crave a really hard peleton ride. We're like you know like a really hard yoga class or like taking a long walk with a friend. I don't. I don't have the same motivation i have for that. I do like the cupcake or the warring relaxing thing hit of social media. But even though. I don't have the wanting if i actually engage in that practice. Feel so much better and so this is a dumb way to design a brain wanting would kind of go with liking. But it just doesn't and that means we spend a lot of time craving and easily going after things we won't really like and it means we don't have mechanisms except very kind of rational. You know push ourselves how these kind of low grade craving mechanisms to go after things that really will benefit our happiness but but we don't realize we want them. How do we hijack that like. How do we trick ourselves into doing the thing that we don't think we like doing is good for us. Yeah well there's there's two ways to do it you know one. Is this very rational. Force yourself way which which. I harness a lot which is like even though. I don't really feel like calling anyone right now. I know the science and talked to someone. I'll feel better right kind of the force yourself approach right but the force yourself approach works best if it's paired with the second practice which is forcing yourself to notice what you like because the wanting system can update. It just doesn't do it naturally but after a really hard yoga class or after calling that friend when you didn't feel like it take time to notice like does this feel good and you're like yeah this actually sexually fall's nice. I had this creek ovid. When i was going to a yoga studio this wonderful yoga instructor at right at the end of a hard class would have you take this moment like okay. Now take a moment to notice. Notice how you feel after this class like notice. How this is you feel after july dam. That was great. Like i want more in this feeling. You know so when you pick the salad and stop pretending that diet coke is water and you go for the slowest sweatiest shuffle around the block. But you do it. Take a minute an absolutely relish. How wonderful and brave and heroic efforts were and how you feel. We deserve this but we tend not to be present. Tend not to mindfully notice and that's true for the stuff. You really crave but you might not like after you like your open the fridge four times and grab that thing to eat that you didn't really feel like take a moment to be like. Am i satisfied now. Not really want to grab something else and once. You notice that you're wanting system can be like okay. Kinda duly noted. Let's take note of that for next time. So kind of forcing yourself to ignore you're wanting system and just act through this very rational path but then also mindfully noticing what you really like. Those things can start update. You're craving system at least a little bit but the systems are always going to be disconnected. Unfortunately it's just our minds are not really designed that well for wanting all the things that we like. What about like our self image. How much does that play into our happiness. And how much does monitoring our likes and our social media and you know looking at pictures of our face distorted camera lens. How much is that affecting our happiness and how we see our lives. Yeah well one one another dumb feature of the way our minds work when it comes to happiness is the fact that we don't necessarily think of the good things in our life in objective terms. We think of them in relative terms and that means that seeing ourselves on social media seeing what's going on with other people on social media that can really affect our happiness in some ways but take your body image for example right you know you might objectively think you have sir in you know body. That's good or not so good or whatever but we don't necessarily think in terms of our objective sense we think relative and so as soon as you go on instagram and you look at you know the bikini pictures of someone else or take your objective sense of how good your vacation was or how rich you are. How nice your houses. Then you know you watch the celebrity. You know talk feeds in. You're like like my house. Isn't that good or my vacation sucked and things like that. We're really susceptible to social comparison when it comes to evaluating anything in our life. Our abilities are are amount of money are salary a house. Whatever and that means that we can easily start feeling bad even when we're in objectively a good situation. My favorite extreme example of this was a study that looked at the emotions of different olympic medalists. So probably gold medalists probably feeling pretty happy like they just wanna gold medal. Yeah but what about silver-medallists maybe slightly less happy but what researchers find. Is that if you look at the emotional expressions this silver medallist show on the.
