Why Children of Immigrants Experience Guilt
"Hello sasha welcome. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. I'm so excited to be here. I'm so excited to be speaking with you. So you are a mental health therapist and training and the founder of bronco therapy a community. You started to allow the children of immigrants to speak openly about mental health issues and one team. I've noticed in the content. You share is a guilt frequently experienced by people with immigrant parents in you talk more about that guilt. There's definitely a relationship between being a child of immigrant. Parents living in the west and experiencing guilt Children of immigrants are often straddling two cultures known as bicultural straddling. And there's often this expectation to make our immigrant parents sacrifices in choices for coming to this country worth it. Many children of immigrants feel chronic sense of guilt for letting their parents down for not being enough for being. Too american for seeming ungrateful. There's also the sense of reiver's guilt or this guilt of growing healing accessing resources opportunities that maybe our parents didn't have or our family and other parts of the world don't have access to do so. Many children of immigrants may have grown up being responsible for their parents as well. You know if we think about an immigrant's journey to the west they may not speak english well so a lot of children of immigrants may act as a translator may help pay the bills may help take care of younger siblings so caretaking and we know that emigrating and immigration can lead to a lot of family and generational conflict as everyone in the family is is navigating their own acculturation journey you know creating a sense of belonging in the host country so a lot of children of immigrants are often mediators for cultural conflict within their family this responsibility for the well being of our parents whether it's explicitly or implicitly stated can be reinforced over the years as a sense of obligation and it's exhausting. It's a you know. Children of immigrants are often internalizing these beliefs. That they have to be a certain way that they have to act a certain way and then they're out in the world feeling like they're also not enough in the western sense of the of the

Thank you for having me and Dr Beneath Aurora is assistant Dean at the Uchicago. Pritzker School of Medicine. High Doctor Aurora. Welcome back. I saw said Thanks for having me back. I'll start with you. Dr. Aurora. When did you Start to become aware of how serious the situation had become. I think probably a few weeks ago. You know, before the images of the mass crematoriums and some of the other really devastating images that we've seen, um, of people dying on the street. Um we, you know a lot of us who are positions of Indian origin, Um, in the United States, and there are many of us are on WhatsApp groups with our families and friends and we were hearing that people were, you know, back home in, you know, families extended. Family in India were getting coded there asking questions. They were struggling to find oxygen. And so that's really when I think many people in the community in that are Indian on de especially physicians of Indian origin. We're hearing about this. Dr Tan out to that point a week ago, you tweeted something similar, You said woke up to the news of another family friend in India lost to the covert 19 pandemic. I know this is an experience that it's so many Indians here in the Chicago area and and across the country. That they've been having, especially in this past week. Yes, exactly. We found out through our WhatsApp groups, probably about two weeks ago that more and more family members and family friends were not only testing positive, but also going to the hospital and passing away. Um, it was really alarming. How Quickly it came on, I would say Even a month ago, people were having normal weddings and engagement parties and life seemed like it was back to normal, and India was a major success story, and it's completely changed. No doctor 10 a year in infectious disease specialist. What do we know that about what is

"sasha" Discussed on WBEZ Chicago
"Sasha and Simon's. Sometimes when I was starting a new story, and I could not get it going. I would stand and look out over the roofs of Paris and think Do not worry. You have always written before, And you will Right now. All you have to do is write one true sentence, right? The truest sentence that you know. So finally, I would write one true sentence on then go on from there. Those are the words of writer Ernest Hemingway. It's from a new three part six hour documentary by renowned filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. Simple simply titled Hemingway. Their latest work explores the life and legend of Oh Park native Ernest Hemingway, one of the 20th Century's greatest writers and the man behind classics like a Farewell to Arms and for Whom the Bell Tolls Now on the line with us now are, of course, Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. I can and Lynn welcome Hi. Thank you for having us. Then I'll just so much. I'll start with you, Ken. What inspired you to take a closer look at the life of Ernest Hemingway? Well, you know, it may be right in that little clip you have right there, you know, at at at the start. This is a grand, complicated dark. Romantic Hale. But at the heart of it is somebody struggling to figure out a new way to express the dust of the 20th century in basic elemental language, that one true sentence the thing He thought every day of his life sometimes couldn't Often could is the story of one of this love the 20th, century's greatest writers and the person who has had a profound effect on not just American literature. Uh, but all of world literature and who nonetheless has the most complicated Kind of personal life. He created the mythology that so Impenetrable it took us then and to 6.5 years. Just try toe Pierce the veils of that. The overhyped masculinity to get at a more vulnerable, more empathetic, more interesting, um, Ernest Hemingway. And to try to Russell is complex biography as well. This is great literary output. To the ground. Yeah, the world saw him is ah man's man, But there was so much more. When did you get introduced to Hemingway can was. This is a school child Well with this way, why I read the killers was the first story I read is a 15 year old. I can still remember my stunning shock at the language of the racist language at the at the violence, And yet there's no violence in it at the threat. It was just so much below the surface, and he believed in the iceberg theories of of things. 78 should be below the surface, 18 revealed, And that's a very telling. Way to understand the spareness of Hemingway. It's seemingly is simple. And then it just gobbles you up. And then I read old man and the sea is an assignment later on in high school and red stuff, Lady later on into adulthood, but I found a little scrap of paper. Not too long ago. That said, you know, in the early eighties that were already beginning the civil war to do baseball, then Hemingway and we talked about it, then joined us at the end of the eighties and We talked about it with our writer Jeff Ward and sort of mapped it out kind of in brief conversations, and but it wasn't until 2012 that we said yes, and began to raise money as we do in public broadcasting and then started filming in 2014. So it was a 6.5 your process, even if we'd you know, pulled the started the first filming. And, of course, your personal journey with Hemingway started back with the killer's, which was written back in 1927 Lin. Let's let's bring you into this conversation as can just highlighted. This serious was about seven years in the making. How did you approach it? Well, I think first we went back and read or reread as much ever. Hemingway's work as we could just to put her arms around what it was about his art that made the story worth telling. And then we began to, um Get familiar with the archival record. You know what existed of his work and the what he left behind of his manuscripts, and his work process is remarkable, all beautifully archived in preserved. And then his personal correspondence. Turns out he also saved that. So we had access to his inner life and his private conversations and sort of what he was taking it pretty much any given moment of his life and who he was talking to you. And in what way? I mean, he wrote thousands of letters and he saved carbon copies, which is interesting thinking about his legacy. We hear him speaking writing home to his parents from the hospital in World War one after he was wounded, writing to the woman he fell in love with soon after that, getting the Dear John letter that really perhaps changed his life. So his correspondence is an incredible access to the what we would say, kind of the actual human being Ernest Hemingway and then speaking to writers from around the world about as Kendall is saying his insolence, you know, worldwide, not just in the United States. And so hearing about what his work means to add No Brian Mario Vargas Llosa, Abraham Borghi's Tobias Wolff, Tim O'Brien, You know, hearing their perspectives about why they read him what he was meant in their work and what he still has to say to us. And then working with our editors, But this you know huge pieces of this puzzle together. That was a puzzle. You mentioned his being wounded during the war. He volunteered. For the American Red Cross during the first World War and, of course, was badly injured during that time, you say, and you've got a quote from him in the dock where he says, you know, it gives you a satisfactory feeling to be wounded. It's getting beaten up at a good cause. How did that experience changed him? Lynn It's probably fair to say that he was a different person after that, and he might have said that himself. I mean, he described so beautifully. The stealing of after he shell exploded and he was badly wounded. Multiple shrapnel wounds and his leg was really torn to pieces. On D had a big head wound. He felt his soul leaving his body. That's what he said. It was like a handkerchief being pulled out of a pocket and floating around and then coming back, and that was a searing traumatic experience and probably a profoundly spiritual existentially experience as well. That never left him. So he had a sense early on of the fragility of life. The fact that it can all be taken away the fact that you can't control your own destiny. These air. This is essential human themes, and he also saw the carnage and waste of World War one and developed. I think a very healthy cynicism when it comes to what he says the words Sacrifice and glory when it comes to describing war, So he gave him a healthy relationship to, um the things people do with the name of war and country and glory that are so terrible and destructive and really shaped him in many more ways even than that..
Be Less Apologetic With Kimberly Blackwell
"Kim welcome to to professional troublemaker. Oh my god. It's also thrilled to be here. This is a long time coming long time coming too long to low. Always start off by asking my guess. What did you wanna be when you were growing up. fun fact. I actually wanted to be a sports medicine doctor really so i have a passion for sports. Okay and really for me. was very curious about medicine. And actually my undergraduate degree i went to syracuse made and so everything by way of my preparation was to go to medical school so sports medicine. So how old were you when you realize that. That's something that you wanted to be. So here's what i'll tell you. I think i feel like. I thought i wanted to be a doctor. Probably as early as junior high. Not quite as young as elementary. But i think i'd junior high. I kinda develop that curiosity around medicine and then i played sports in high school so i played volleyball and basketball when i got to syracuse. They ask them okay so listen. This had a scholarship for basketball to yale. Oh did not go to your obviously to this day. My father does not let me live that down. Okay i'm gonna bring you way back because this is fascinating okay. So five year old. kim. How was she. Okay let's back that up okay. So kim started school at three years. Old ooh okay. And so for. Kim went to montessori school. I started early. Kim was also advanced a great. So i tell folks. Nothing i do or have done has ever been conventional started school early advanced. The great graduated fairly young. I pledged in my teens. Alpha kappa alpha. Oh yeah it's like so but going back to your question. I think five year old cam actually still has a lot of the characteristics of forty something year old count. I think i always was a people person. Okay i think i was always operating from a position of excellence. I put pressure on myself. And i remember this even as a child i wanted to beat you in everything that we play like kick ball. I want to win. Like and i want to win. Not by you know two kicks but by ten So i was very competitive. i think as I looked to areas sort of where i tried to kind of position myself. As a team player. I think even the end and having played soccer as a toddler to montessori school so i was kinda raised in that environment of like you know we have. We didn't sit desk with chairs we were taught to be. Free are thinking won'- the room with blocks and all that good stuff. We call it our teachers by their first name. Gianna oh no i'm burn. No i will never forget him. John berno and it was. It was really cool. My my parents like you know my mother's educator. So you know grew up. In the fact where my mother started as a schoolteacher and so you know we will come home to kids. We didn't know sitting in a diner on the table because my mother really kind of operated like you know it takes a village and though our who is it you know but i think i develop that sense of community and responsibility to community by saying my mother embodied that early age and so she was an educator teacher there became an administrator retired as the superintendent on my father was in public service I grew up where he had been on the council city council but even before that school board So we would have kids. We were sasha malia without knowing way bag win do on parades my were you oldest oldest of three. I'm the oldest. Three pitchers like my dad was the mayor you know.

Ben Silverman - Ececutive Producer of The Office
"How did you discover the uk version of the office. I was at my friend. Henrietta conrad's house. I was not an agent. I had left being an agent where i had found everything from who wants to be a millionaire to cracker queer as folk and had translated them into america as the packaging agent and i laughed. Backed by barry diller to start my own company called rally and i had just begun reveling in win over to london for a work trip and was staying at my friend. Henrietta conrad's house and we were watching television. And i was literally flipping the channels and i came on to the office. This is episode one or two okay of the uk season one office. Wow and i was watching it. I wondering if it was for comedy or for real than quickly recognized what it was doing single camera no laugh track faux documentary with people who felt real and i kept watching and started laughing. And it's really hard to make me laugh. And i was falling in love with the show in that moment and then i started thinking about it the next day in the morning and i asked henrietta if she knew ricky gervais as and she said no but her friend dan. Mazer did and we organized and had dinner with dan that night. Which are twenty four hours after you after you see it for the first time on television. You're having dinner with someone who could get you to ricky. Yes and additionally. I also wanted to be with dan. Dan was sasha baron. Cohen's partner allergy was on television. Was allie ardor your then no in the uk okay. But i'm with dan mazer yep. Dan is lovely brilliant in his own. Right and i start peppering questions about the office. And he gives me ricky cell phone number and so the next day. I call ricky around eleven o'clock in the morning and introduce myself on the phone and say i'd love to meet you. Are you in town. He goes actually. Yes me in soho at the starbucks this afternoon and i coordinate a meeting and i spent an hour with ricky talking about the office and very quickly we got along because we both love television and he truly was making me laugh even in those moment right over over the coffee at starbucks and so he clearly had chosen the location of the starbucks because he then says to me oh good news. My agent is right around the corner. Let's go meet with them so it was almost like he met me confirmed. I was okay roy. Conversation was interesting and then we walked over and met with dunkin' as his agent. And then duncan and i began a three month process to secure the rights. And it wasn't until dunkin. Help me unlock it. All that i realized. Both the bbc and ricky controlled the rights. I needed ricky and stephen merchant to actually get it done and agitate to get it done otherwise. It was never going to get done. Got it so you you deal with the bbc. And you deal with ricky steven. You have this partnership in place and where do you go into the united states. I immediately start making phone calls and saying. Are you aware of the show the office. Do you know what it is. Do you think it would interest you. And this is probably now a month after are so run. The show has started to gain buzz. It's aired its cycle in the uk. Its initial six episodes and so it has an awareness. Now it's a thing right not a big thing but to anyone in england it in the television industry. You're aware so. I'm i'm back at the states reaching out to people one of the incredible things about hollywood which was a huge advantage for me to do. Well was that people in hollywood are pretty insular and don't like to travel. They think you need a passport to get from burbank to beverly hills. That is travel and so many people at this time in american television had no clue connection about anything beyond la. Right and only one exac at the time knew what i was talking about was a guy named nick grad. Who worked at fx and he knew what the show was and he loved the show. Kevin riley was running fx. At the time. I'd gone to less mooned us he passed. I went to gail berman. She passed immediately. Didn't get it. Hbo said we'll never do a remake. They clearly have altered that thinking that that time they were like. We won't do a format and showtime wasn't doing shows like this right. I didn't go to abc. 'cause i just knew it wasn't abc. Right and i was starting to tease. Nbc with it and kevin than got named the head of nbc. And i bring it up to him. And i say would you wanna do it here and kevin says absolutely little. Did he know he was actually my only buyer that time. He was the only one right who wanted everyone else. All of television everyone else had passed. Now are you in kevin's like let's do it. Like let's let's make it. You know i'll give you a pilot movement and then kevin's boss though. Who is very involved in his life. Jeff zucker didn't really like it that much because it was his single camera. Nola back injury. I got it like it was a hard pill for them to swallow. I was also like they didn't want the game show back in prime time when i brought millionaire. Everyone thought that was cheesy. Daytime like no no. This will change. Tv know you gotta look at it from how to push the genre and pushed the envelope. So that you can expand versus always play for defense right and i was like this is another level and this is potentially transformative of television and with that can come great great

Best Moments of the Golden Globes 2021
"Think of the globes as an entertainment event that are really big. Audience still watches in part because a lot of people see it as the kickoff for oscar season. Let me just say if you're queasy about these awards being granted any weight at all you will get. I think no argument from us. That is certainly not our position so to the degree that they mean much. There certainly were some good property. Some good movies and television that were honored Start with nomad land. Which one sort of the top top movie prize. Best motion picture drama and also best director for chloe jau. We just covered this Recently on pop culture happy hour so we don't necessarily need to rehash that whole thing but we were big fans. I loved seeing khloe jowl win. Yeah yeah The top prize for a motion picture. Musical or comedy went to borat subsequent film a movie that i like to say not for linda's but i know people who who love it really love it also winning for that was sasha baron cohen who won best actor for a musical or comedy. The best actor in a drama this one delivered one of the best moments of the night for sure that award went to chadwick boseman for my rainey's black bottom boy that was that was quite a moment accepting the award on his behalf was his wife. Taylor simone lead word and look the globes are trashy and meaningless and then something real happens out of nowhere and that was a really effective speech and a really effective moment in an evening. That felt shambolic in chaotic. Otherwise something beautiful something inspiring something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells you can tell you to keep going calls you back to what you were meant to be doing. At this moment in history he would think it kind of felt similar to the moment of that whole series of heath. Ledger getting his posthumous awards for his role in dark knight and it felt really earned and it didn't phillips just because he had passed away like this was the role of a lifetime for him and i'm really glad to see him being honored in that way. Yeah it was a very very moving speech. If you didn't see it. I encourage you to seek it out. It's all over the place that award. I think was wonderful to see not too surprising. One that i think was surprising was Andrew day for the united states versus billie holiday aisha. You saw this to the surprising not too much. I think that there was a lot of buzz for her. And i think that it was more likely she was going to win award for this. Then she might be to win for an oscar if she were to get an oscar nomination but she does a really great job of sounding like billie holiday without sounding too much like her like. It's feeling like mimicry. And she is by far the best thing about the movie and we'll actually be covering it in our tomorrow so everyone can check it out fantastic. I'm extremely excited. I haven't seen it yet. In addition to that the first award of the night actually in of of presentation was daniel. Columbia for judas. The black messiah. They had a little glitch with his audio. You know they were figuring it out. We've all had that glenn said the motto of the pandemic was going to remind your muted. It was a little bit of a mom. You're muted kinda moment. But i was not surprised that he that he won that he's wonderful in that movie. I think you didn't pay on. Is this on. Is this on a cool cool. He really is. And it's a solid win. I mean like he started speaking and you heard millions of voices crying out. You're on mute. Dan mute and i think that moment should make the montage in years to come if there is still a golden globe sincere to come because who knows but like that will be the most emblematic acceptance speech of two thousand twenty one easily that will crystallize this moment in time.

The motion picture called Music was nominated, as was the comedy with Andy Sandberg, Palm Springs. And the Ryan Murphy directed production. The prom. Which has Meryl Streep and has just AH, whole variety of very talented actors. That's also nominated for best picture as well.

For best actress in a motion picture Maria Buckler Cova, who is placed Borat's daughter in Borat. Subsequent movie film Kate Hudson from music. And, uh, Anya Taylor, Joy dominated for the movie called Emma for best performance by an actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy. Sasha Baron Cohen is nominated James Corden from the prom Lin Manuel Miranda from Hamilton Dev Patel for the personal history of David Copperfield and Andy Sandberg. For Palm Springs again. I think it's going to be a kind of in a reverend pick, but I think Sasha Baron Cohen could wind up being the winner. Now. The Golden Globes also give out

We've both been funerals but it was kind of you know at a distance and it was just one of those things where i wanted to say. Hey i know what you're going through right now. But i couldn't i could only say i can only imagine what that feels like and it didn't feel like enough that's kind of what inspired the title. That's my friend danny. Celebrate danny came over to hang out and we were talking about song. Titles and i was like i had the song title called until it happens to you and you know when i explained the concept to him really struck a chord with him and we went to the studio and danny had this guitar part. That was really beautiful. I love writing with danny and henry because of craig guitar players. I play piano. But i'm always usually more inspired by like a great guitar riff so i felt super inspired by that. And the title until it happens to you. Felt like it really fit with qatar part for me. Titles have to find their partner. I in order for me to write them. It's so much easier for me to write melody when i have a concept that i'm starting with. It's much harder for me to work off of melodies and then villain lyrics afterwards.

A Childhood on the Farm
"So let's jump off from one. Animal will benefit the other to talk about the family so moving to hear you describe this because it reminds me of students taking an environmental science class. And then there's the quiz lit and the flash cards and the phrase kurban sequestered and drew are false. This is learning by doing. And it's absolutely the way. Children learn best using all five senses in the three dimensional world. And you also mentioned joan about the changing of seasons and how the children are accustomed to that and learn the rhythm of that so one animal benefiting the other in your particular described to me that challenges and reward of. Let's start with. Sasha how does she benefit and tax and challenged the rest of the system right. Well i would say. Sasha is our observer and alert system for the families. she's really in tune when somebody's hurt or sick because she's always hyper focused on anything being out of balance essentially if she notices as a change to our rhythm change to our habits. She's the first to say. Why are we doing this or what's wrong about the situation. It's not what we're used to doing. The same goes for on the farm. She's the first one to come running in and say there's an injured goat. There is an injured goat coming into the house and she gets to say that sentence mom. There's an injured goat or or such and such goethe's in heat. We better breed them right now. Oh yes and how does she know about such and such goat well. She's been raised with them since she was born and so she knows their behavior. She knows all of them and their personalities and when they're acting different and with her their heat cycles she's aware that the fall is when they go into heat and she knows that they flagged their tails when they're ready flag their tail. They flagged their tails. Does it mean wave of back and forth her yup and she's smitten with a particular goat. Yes she has. A favourite goat considers it her child the goats name panda and it's an alpine dairy goat. That's funny yup. it's black and white. There is a year where we had a lot of black and white dulling so and they decided to name them all black and white name so there is like orca. Oreo and panda was one of them. Yeah so this is so much fun. This is someone because this is children's imagination applied to a practical purpose because those goats need names. You need to be able to distinguish them when she comes and says that panda is in heat. It's important for you to be able to picture which goat. She's talking about absolutely. She is alert when she comes in with the news on the continuum of excited and enthusiastic veg ing on alarm more panic. What's the tone. I would say it's equally both. I would say that to once she experiences says sees this she comes around in and it's like frantic furious. This is very important. You have to listen to me. So and so is doing this that or the other or so and so's injured and it's just i think it's giddiness that she is able to tell us that. And it's also that she is experiencing what's going on so she is. She's getting both those things going on in her brain at same
Interview With Emma Grede
"Emma thank you so much for coming on the show. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. How i thank you so much for having way and mary excited to talk to you about everything that you've done but first let's jump into skimming your resume so my best job was when i was like twelve and i had to pay around and it gave me my best taste of cash. Which was just wonderful pitches stopped working since then. I went through the hosted in my life working in retail. And i had always weighty being about sasha i loved that world i come from place where you know. It was really devoid of any kind of fashion obama. So i found was really gravitating towards you. Know just the beauty and the supermodels and the brands you know. As i was growing up it was all about the saatchi and chanel and families that working in designer stores in and then my first proper job of coming out of college. I studied business at the london college of fashion and went straight into fashion. Show production avow myself in this really all. Its little niche because in london guests there. Was this amazing. You know london fashion week. Where all of these brilliant designers but nobody really had the money to put on this show. So i ended up in this strange donation of sponsorship and kind of creighton bronze collaborations with the great and the good of the british fashion industry. And that's weighty. Where taught my teeth. And i think that when i think about what it is today and where i've found my success it already started in those early days of being a production company and really learning how to bridge the gap between the creative businesses that fashion all and and more commercial bronze. And so. yeah. That was it for me. That's that was the beginning of it when something that people would be surprised to know about you. Oh i mean. I guess he will probably be surprised to know like how much about makeup i am. I guess maybe that's not something that you always associated with. Somebody who's an entrepreneur like my favorite thing to do is cooking and making things nice at the house. I'm an absolute festive fruit. Like the idea that. I get thanksgiving on top of christmas. Now i'm living in america could not be a need better. I'm not get to do that. Twice is at christmas participate so right now. That's all i think about is that. What is my thanksgiving menu table. Go look greg bat. That is my job. Elevate okay so. I love opening up our questions with entrepreneurs like yourself by talking about your childhood because our childhoods shape all of us and informs ultimately who we are in in how we make decisions. I want you to paint a picture for us about how you grew up in how you think that's shaped you. Yeah it's a great question on a great more. I failed so much of may an how i behave. How i treat people have chosen to comes from my childhood and you know i had a reedy great childhood. I grew up for e kind of a poll basically in east london very deprived area. And i say it so blatantly as that is because you know. It wasn't only devoid of glamour. It was completely devoid of opportunities. Everybody in that community had lived there their entire lives and you seemingly could get out of it. It was a huge jack of opportunity. A huge lacquers education and i saw for myself in my mother who really kind of broke through an managed to create something else for. She was a single mother with four children and my mom found herself. You know working in the stock exchange becoming a trader having a job for twenty plus years at morgan stanley. And that for me was you know it was just like a gateway sunday could see that you know you could create with with a lot of hard work and today and if you really did that you get rid of that to pay off then you could really really really change your outlook very very early on i. I really believe that the harder. I what the more likely would be to get myself out of. Why soares a pretty kind of dire situation but of course when you live and you grow up like that doing something you know. I could understand it if you're a doctor lawyer or going into banking fashion just didn't seem like a way out to me and so there are times in my life where i definitely thought. Oh am i on the wrong path which is ultimately why. I went and studied business at the london college fashion. Because i believe that. If i could set that foundation in business and have this specialism fashion that at least it would ground me that if all that fun bit didn't work out. I'd still have the basics of business. And i could go and run construction company. Also something
Remembering musician and producer, SOPHIE
"We want to spend a couple minutes remembering pioneer music producer. Sophie who preferred not to use gendered or non binary. Pronouns died in an accident last week at the age of thirty four so fi did a lot of solo stuff but also collaborated with some pretty big names. People like vince staples is and charlie x and even mcdonagh here to talk with us about this loss and help celebrate. Sophie is sasha geffen. They wrote a book called glitter up. Dark how pop. Music broke the binary and they wrote a profile of sophie in two thousand seventeen for vulture sasha. Welcome thank you for having me. So sasha what do you think. It was about the music that sophie made. That was so uniquely appealing listening to sophie song as like getting immersed in bespoke universe where everything is tailored to be maximally sincerely pleasurable sounds great. It's like being in the opposite of sensory deprivation chamber it's like being in a sensory overload chamber but in the past most and i think it's like being in a place where you can perceive everything in touch everything experience everything i'm sensory level and also everything around you is also touching and perceiving you. It's like this exchange that feels really fluid and vibrant and alive. Neyla what i hear in the music is this desire to take the most irresistible parts of pop songs the most most delightful and fun elements in really clear out space around them. Zoom in on what made those sounds in those moments gesture so infectious. Because hank sophie recognized that there is a lot of power in the kind of music that can bring thousands of people together in a room. That can coordinate. People in that way that kind of ecstatic collective effort. Vinson's that happens. I think we can't really talk about sofi without talking about the fact that sophie's a trans person so if he was a trans person. How do you think that showed up in sophie's music something that it can only really speak to my own experience but ver- me something that's been part of the process of figuring out how to be a person who was trans is being really hungry for surfaces that kind of resonate with my core and that's what i here in a lot of this music is looking at the surface internalizing it and then reflecting it in yourself and becoming your own image in a way that is satisfying and rewarding. Obviously there's that line in takeda. Cry it just goes. You're inside his your best side. Which is like funny. I think i mean that song in particular kind of flirt so openly with like the sentimental or like the corny but but really lands it in its vulnerability is so. How do you think sophie would wanna be remembered. I think sophie would probably want to be remembered by people taking care of each other and looking towards joy and finding you know finding that opportunity to to dance again someday. Sasha thank you for sharing about sophie's joy and vulnerability and thank you for sharing your own join vulnerability appreciate yeah. Thank you so much for having me like. I said it's been helpful just personally to kind of like talk through some of the stuff you could do some processing. Yeah i mean it just. I think it's useful to talk to understand the great emotional sway that this music hold over a lot of us how powerful it was. And that's ounce

"sasha" Discussed on True Consequences
"One first degree murder Mark Daniel Gooch honor between January eighteen, twenty, twenty in. January. Nineteen twenty, twenty intending or knowing that his conduct will cause death with premeditation did cause the death of Sasha Marie Krause in? Violation of all these codes and laws or in the alternative mark. Daniel Gooch honor between January eighteen twenty twenty in January nineteen twenty, twenty acting either alone or with one or more persons committed or attempted to commit kidnapping or in in the course of an in furtherance of such a fence or immediate flight from such a fence. Mark Daniel Gooch or another person did cause the death Sasha Murray crowds. In violation of and there's a bunch of laws that are quoted there. I think that the police at some point thought maybe that Sam was involved in this or maybe somebody else was involved in this but they haven't been able to prove that yet count three kidnapping on or about February twenty first knowingly did restraints krause with the intent to inflict death physical injury or a sexual offense on her or to otherwise aid in the Commission of a felony. And then again, a bunch laws that are listed and finally count four. Mark Daniel Gooch on or about February twenty first without lawful authority knowingly did control Sasha Marie crosses headcovering end her underwear, a value of less than two thousand dollars with the intent to deprive of such property in violation of. All these things, which is a class one misdemeanor that was living I forgot to mention He stole her her head covering, which is something that is pretty important to the women. It was obviously a statement that he was making. By stealing there as well as her underwear. It's terrible statement to make it I. Think it speaks to his disdain for the midnight faith it's speech to his State of mind. and. The motivation of him doing this. It's horrible Tony I agree with you. Yes. She she seemed to live her life in love and didn't deserve this tappan to her in the name of Hate I. Agree with you. There's no indication on where the head covering was found or at least they haven't released that information yet. But they did say that they knew he took it I'm sure more of that information will be released. All right. I followed this case really closely I was kind of sort of on the fringes involved in it by passing out flyers and things trying to find her was some question. After mark was arrested. To exactly who would be pressing charges do you know if it's GonNa, be the state of Arizona or will it be federal or will it be even? Could it be? The. Military. I don't know that they've. Identified that I know that his last hearing was was conducted by the State of Arizona against him and I think that that's where it's going to remain because there was some conversation about Arizona taking because they had the death penalty. In New Mexico and I was I was also thinking that. The. Military would definitely push for the death penalty and so with the feds. So you know anyway he go. Just kind of in a big. Big Role to her yeah well I don't Wanna get ahead of myself here but have some information about the death penalty in about about what's happening with his case in regards to that. But I can tell you that the most recent hearing was the state of Arizona. Marquette Yeah I was just curious scrap soon. Yeah. It'll be interesting to see what happens and who knows. Maybe there still could be. Some you know action on on behalf of the military against him because I know things are different when it comes to being in the military in committing crimes. So it'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Do you think he did it? I. Think it was kind of it was still kinda passionate piece out of practice murderer. So right you know yeah, I think so too I mean it it seems like It'll be really hard for him to get out of this just based on everything that's been laid out. And I'm surprised by how much information has been released by by police in by prosecutors because usually with a case like this, they hold a lot Costa, their best but they seem to be just like out in the open about almost all of it I'm sure they're holding some stuff back but I was really. Surprised at how much information is. Adam dead the right. So there's not. Really, there's no point in holding a lot. In all the. Rats Klatt red handed in on his just thing. Yeah. His his lawyers seem to think that he has a strong defense so it'll be interesting to see what they pull out. When the trial because Maybe they're just talking big but in the arraignment hearing, they got pretty pretty high and mighty in pretty. Had some pretty strong responses so it'll be interesting to see how that plays out Alex says my brothers on the in the Air Force I'm going to ask him if he knows what the military will do in response. He's probably sleeping right now. Yeah. Cool. Yeah. Let me know You can probably find me on twitter or facebook or something and let me know I'd be interested to know about that. All right. So let me get into the current status of the case and then we'll go into some cuny maybe injections GonNa meet you for a second. Because you'll have a little bit of background noise I'm yourself whenever I'm going. To I'm upon if I have much. Okay. Cool. His offense will be interesting I wonder if it's some kind of mental illness or temporary insanity since he lost it, that could be where they're going Yeah. I bet you. You're right killing I could see them going for a insanity plea just because of his intense anger towards the midnight faith that'd be that'd be probably the way that they need to go because the evidence is so strong against him at a hearing in May. Gooch pled not guilty nobody surprised to the charges that were brought against him in court. His attorney argued that he was not a threat to society and that he should be released on bail in the state did not have enough evidence to hold him. However. The judge disagreed and denied the bail request it'd be interesting to know if there were 'cause he did say he was mistreated mistreated by the Mennonites it'd be interesting nobody but like honestly probably not premeditated sounds like it was more impulsive could be yeah it's hard to know his defense argued that it was a first a first defense that he had in the he really didn't have a record and so they should consider that the judge said. nope Nobel sorry. And because this was a first degree offense in Arizona, the case would qualify for the death penalty if the state wanted to pursue the death penalty. They only had sixty days to submit that to the court. This is why the judge said he was ineligible for bail was because the prospect of the death penalty was on the table and if he did get the death penalty. Then, he wouldn't be eligible for bill basically in Arizona just recently. The Sixty Day period passed. In the state did not pursue the death penalty, which now makes him eligible for bail and the judge ruled that he would have a two million dollar cash only bail and this is what the judge said during that trial quote the court does not believe that if the defendant is released or sorry, the court does believe that if the defendant is released the he poses a.

Okay, so my family and her family were friends way before we were even born, so we were always see to their at family gatherings when we were younger, and then we started getting very close in our teenage years. And that's when we find that. We were identical. Identical yes Indian. D- what was Sasha like as a kid? Sasha was very artistic like I remember when I would see Sasha's especially, because when we were kids, we kind of hated hearing about each other, because our parents were kind of against each other like my mother would always be like Oh. You Know Sasha is doing a plane school in her middle school and high school. And I, and then her aunt, who was had would be like. Oh, well, you know D- Get straight as all the time so. Tired of hearing each other about each other all the time I don't even want to hear, but what we started becoming a little older, and we were forming our own opinions about one another I just remember her being so bad cystic always drawing, always thinking always creating. So loving energy always the first thing you would see when you see especially when she was younger well still. You know as a first impression is. She would always argue she has always like loving, so that was how I remember her as a kid. Sasha! What was do you like? D. was very smart like I. Just knew if you WanNa, know something is I d, Goretti, she. She knew facts all the time, so my aunt was telling me that she has straight as I was very impressed by how young she was, and how she was how she was able to articulate herself and I'm like man animal. He'd been an artsy fartsy and I can't even express myself like she. She can, but. One of the things that I do definitely remember as has a huge heart, and she's just willing to help anybody she she's. She's willing to save everybody and that's one thing I admire about her. She's amazing. Do when you were kids. Did you think that comedy was in the cards for you? I knew that it was going to be in the cards. In some shape or form at come from a very funny family, everyone's always roasting each other. And then my older brother also was very into comedy, and there was one TV how I would have to, but he was watching because there was another option, and he at a very early age I knew about Richard Pryor Eddie Murphy. So I knew that I wanted to do it because. It was something that will show my humor, and also my phone very strongly about something where I wanted to just talk about some recently learned the vile that can be a sluice fast, but if you make it into humor, if you make it funny that everybody wants to listen to it. And Sasha for you know. I didn't think comedy Liz. Ever going to be something that I was going to pursue because I wanted to be a singer. I wants to be the next Whitney. Houston and I didn't like her, but I wanted to make songs and. Just, people were always tell me like you're funny like you're you have a for a funny personality or you not to make jokes, and that also stems from my family, because we don't know how to be serious and if anything. That's. Dramatic happens in the family. We always tend to figure out what's funny, but they also put me onto Dave Chapelle Eddie Murphy and all these. Great giants that I look up to these these days you know.

"Well I mean I don't think I don't think there is that sense of urgency now, bully if This past, Wednesday was a repeat of the week before if they got dominated in the ratings. If it was you know if it was a difference again of a hundred and fifty thousand fans tuning in then I would think they would probably have a sense of urgency, but you know winning the eighteen to forty nine demographic, and then for the most part winning in the overall rating up until that main event. They're probably looking at it. Hey, we won eighteen to forty nine, and they needed a main roster superstar on their show in order to even squeak. Squeak out a ratings win on on. Wednesday I don't think they have that sense of urgency, but when there is competition bully one thing that they did learn I think the week before that they took their foot off the gas pedal I think they they. They kinda got complacent of winning the rating each and every week. They found that they can't put their foot off the gas pedal. Because when they do, they will lose so I think they need to keep that foot on the pedal as you say, but it's GonNa. Be Interesting to see what. He does but I don't think a E. W is in panic mode at all. Would you put Sasha back on an xt this week? You, can't I mean the the I? Mean I guess you could squeeze her in somehow some way I mean I guess they could do something tonight to promote the fact that she's going to be on Wednesday, but as of right now when you look at fighter, Fest Night Number to Sasha banks is not a part of it as a matter of fact I. Don't know I. Don't know how she fits in. Because clearly after what we saw last week, it's all about Oscar and Sasha at extreme rules so i. don't think Sasha Banks fits into annex. T this week or even moving forward anytime in the future. At least till once we get past extreme rules. You just said that they're at extreme rules. I'm thinking way outside of the box right now. Does, Oscar..

"You know better than just about anybody else and really quick not to interrupt, but like you mentioned Kenny Omega Kenny Omega. A lot of people regard Kenya Mega to be the best wrestler in the world right now. RIGHT SO I! Absolutely please continue. Sorry show. It's not like. Sasha Andy Oh just barely eke out a win in that last quarter hour rating, they crushed. That e w main event and I had said to you weeks ago. If Sasha was given the same opportunities as Charlotte I believe that she would. Perform at the same level, if not a better level. And there's one thing in wrestling that you cannot deny in. That's the numbers whether that's a rating whether that's. How many asses you can put in a seat, how many t shirts you can sell and Sasha being advertised in the main event in a non title match. It wasn't even a title match. Did a monster rating? And I hope everybody sees now what I've been saying about Sasha for the longest time. I think they really need to pay attention to this and utilizes. You don't have to break up from Bali. Even though I'd love to see Sasha on her own, her and Bailey. Going on right now. Her an e O had a good match, the UH, the finish of the match I would have done a different way because I think it puts too much focus on Oscar and not enough on e. Oh, but still Sasha did wonders for that segment? Yeah, and and we see it on social media. We saw the reaction from when I said Charlotte head and shoulders. You know a lot of it. Bully has to do with the fact, and and you've said this to that especially lately. Charlotte's been force fed down. A lot of people starts now. She's away and probably this is the best time for Charlotte to be away because I think there was a bit of a force feed when it came to Charlotte, but at the same time there is a lot of love for Sasha banks. It's interesting because Sasha's a he'll and I think in a lot of ways. People wanted to CEO Shirai win that match and annexed. Put Sasha's somebody. Somebody. That's is so polarizing and she could. She could play a baby face. You could play, he'll. It doesn't really matter..

Ever busted open FDR joins us here on busted open to not only talk about their reign as old school tag team wrestlers. We get into the tag. Tag Team rules and W? We also get into night number one fighter fests, and obviously them being featured in night number two of fighter, fast coming up on speaking of fighter fast we also have to talk about the great American. Bash, and we talk about the rating war, and also how the ratings equal Sasha banks in a big way. We talk about Sasha all that right now on the bus that open podcast. And bully a big topic on the show last week, and it's going to be a big topic on the show this week as well bully is. The Great American Bash and fighter fest. We got fighter fest and Great American. Bash night number one last week. And then we got night number two on Wednesday. We had a big discussion about coming out of the week before that when there was over one hundred and fifty thousand more people tuning in for annex, t over eighty W and we were wondering what was going to happen with the great American Bash in fighter fest. Great American Bash was not able to maintain that huge ratings gap over a W for their specialty show last week. But at the same time they did beat a ratings. It was by a very slim margin back to that slim margin again bully probably back to that comfort zone, and and both shows did well. But, I the biggest difference in a big reason, and probably the reason why annexed was able to edge Awa in the ratings was because of one wrestler, and that one wrestler would be. Sasha bangs so a lot of stories coming out of last week again eight W is still getting that crucial. Eighteen to forty nine year old. It's really surprises me that. Is like their average age of their viewers over fifty, which I find very very interesting eighty W has that eighteen to forty nine year old demographic. But when you look at the big difference in the rating, it all comes from that main event. The main event with the great American Bash crushed the main event of fighter. Fast, so you know and this is where bully I have to give.

"And so all of us should be working to execute on our dreams. It's not about what you feel like doing. It's about doing what you know you need to do because it's going going to help benefit your life. That's what it's about it's not about. Oh I'm just going to do this because it's comfortable. Comfort is going to stop a lot of us from achieving our goals. But start when things things start with two things. Don't go and try to do everything all at once. Your solution your resource. Your next opportunity is right there. Look around look at the people in your circle. The kid your email list look at what it is that you have and find your solution because I promise you. It's therefore you let me start by giving a big. Thank you to Sasha's Simmons for contributing to this week's show her stories emphasize how important it is to be resourceful. Especially when you've got big ambitious goals. I think one of the most important takeaways is that thinking resourceful doesn't just come into play when shit hits the fan. It's a skill that can serve you when you're planning when you're on track and even when you're forced out of your comfort zone when it comes to setting goals you shape your objective by making it specific acidic measurable attainable relevant and timely. But think about those key results gave you tortured shaving your objective when you're determining those key results in the planning process process. Assess yourself your surroundings your network and your existing tools. Do you have strength that you can tap into in a peer or colleague. Colleague possibly lend you their strengths if you ask them for their help. Is there some sort of tool that you might have the. You're not making use of. Is there an APP for that. If you discover untapped happed resources from answering those questions find a way to incorporate them into your written key results. When you're about to tackle another result you'll be prepared to take action and make use of that resource in the moment? Personally I like to set out quarterly time to review and reset my goals as a record goal completion also record updates to show progress us in reaching Mikey results because doing so gives me the opportunity to see how close I am to the finish line and how I can accelerate without cutting corners but for every example of where thinking resourcefully comes into play when you're on track. There's probably a dozen examples of why you need to apply skill when all of a sudden your plans careening off the rails. Think of a movie seriously just about any movie does the main character just kick ass and take names the entire time or is there a point in the journey where they've got to take a look around and figure figure out how to get their plan back on track. We see characters across pop culture being resourceful time. Why is that? It's because the screenwriters no that uncertainty uncertainty puts us on edge when the stakes are high. But here's the kicker the stakes are sky high in the real world you are both the screenwriter and the main character character on the road to achieving your goals. So there's no better time to start making the most of your resources so this week. Take the time to evaluate your goals. If they're not detailed eldest built around okay ours make your objectives specific measurable attainable relevant and timely and then think resourcefully to determine the key results Zolt can push you in the direction of your objective if you enjoyed hearing from Sasha.
