"In this country, incentivize this sort of lowest common denominator recruiting method that brings in people who are willing to tow the military industrial policing line. And that is a cultural problem. And that's not going to change unless ironically unless we start thinking of and treating our cops in a different way, maybe less as I don't know, dogs of the state and more like more like legal workers or attorneys or something like that. So I think he has a point there. I agree. I have mixed feelings about higher education and whether everyone needs to go to college to have a successful career or be seen as a success in our culture. So I hesitate a little bit to feel like policing or any job has to require a college degree, which is then more expensive, but I do like the idea of varying the training and thinking about different ways to think about and teach civic engagement, civic enforcement. Connection to community, what we owe each other how to manage when people are struggling in those systems and acting out because of those challenges. So I hesitate on the academic side, but I like the reframing side. I gotta back David's less Justin on this one because I feel like we would never make that type of argument about doctors or lawyers or dentists or people that really need extensive training in order to enact the duties that they actually do. And when you walk into it, and there are bad debt bad doctors and bad lawyers. We know that. But we protect the quality and the integrity of those roles by requiring more from them, academically. I think there needs to be an academic requirement and an intelligence requirement. And I think there has to be a standard and a bar to actually be a cop. I think the idea of just wanting to do it or just having the aptitude to be a cop is should not be enough to actually. I don't think I said you just want to be the cop to do it. That's that sounded like I was just like. Yeah. I'm gonna back Jocelyn here. Not I wasn't even sure we were taking sides. But if we are and taking jostle inside you're not wrong Ronald, if you want to be a doctor, you have to go to med school. If you want to be a cop, you have to go to cop school. That's not what they call it. Police academy, like the movies. Like this does exist, and I think for good reason. Like you said, but I really like what David hit on at the end, which is that reevaluating and repositioning the role that cops play in communities will attract a different type of applicant. You know, you're just going to attract a different type of person with different messaging. So I think, yeah, I'm with Jocelyn that it's less about what college you go to or what degree you have and just more about what how cops exist in America right now. I think I agree with that, but I will say like police academy is like a max two to three months. Yeah, you go to med school for four years. You go to law school for two to three years. That's where I feel like it's lacking because in cases of when we're talking about collegiate education because I feel like you could be conflicted on collegiate education, but I feel like the tradeoff is then to say, who do you want to be a police officer? And I feel like for me, at the bare minimum, if it is going to be police academy, that's in a non collegiate setting. I mean, I need them to have 6 months of emotional intelligence training 6 months of implicit bias training. And then before they even touch a gun, you got to get this certificate. And then it's like, now you can touch a gun. That kind of plays into what I was thinking in terms of the education piece, too, is that you don't go see a doctor for everything that's bothering you. Sometimes you see a PA or a nurse or some other specialist. And I think the same should go for police. Yeah, maybe certain branches of police should have more understanding of the human mind and maybe they're all called cops, but they have different styles of training and different areas of expertise. So they're more on the lines of social workers and community intervention, specialists. And nonviolent communication experts and neighborhood watch teams and that they're all part of a public safety team. I don't think every cop needs to be a surgeon. We need more PAs and nurses in police care. PA school is two to three years. Nursing school is to like, if we're talking about education, there's going to be an educational and a multiyear educational component to any of the roles that you just listed. All right, I'll get on board with upping everyone's baseline human relational quotient, or what's that called when people can emotional intelligence? Yeah, if they come up with some agreement on what the baseline is, but they certainly need that same two years of like you said HR before you could even hold the gun step foot out there. That's right. You coined that. That acronym. All right, let's end all the lighthearted note. I have a problem. Okay, obviously. Yeah, have fun with that, everyone. I have many problems. The problem that I brought to you today is a pretty light and it's kind of half solved, but I don't think it solved the Duff, and it really bothers me. We've been in pandemic for nearly two years now. You know, we've baked the remotely, we've done things on Zoom. You know, we've stood across the room. We've touched the glass on either side of our windows, the CR loved ones, drive by birthday parties. We've done all of that. With all this technology, and maybe this is due to the graphic video card shortage, David. I don't understand how we have not come up with an effective and stable way universal way for all of us to watch the same thing together at the same time. And what I can say that I want to sit down on my couch and I want to watch a movie with David and my home television at the same time he's watching it with no latency speeds. None of that in between. I would be able to watch every act at the same time like he's in the room with me. I know people are gonna tell me a bunch of apps like there's watch party, and you can do it on Discord, that type of thing. What I'm saying is there's no way for me to just turn my TV on and do it. As simply as I could stream stuff by myself and the options, a lot of times are not embedded in the actual streaming apps themselves, like for instance, if you look at something like Disney+, they have some options for you to watch together, but then you might be only able to do it on the iPad, not on your television, dotted your laptop, I've talked about this a lot. They have a lot of different varying degrees of this, but there's not one universal way for all of us to do it unless we just turn on cable television, then we can yell at each other on the phone. So clearly there is a way for this to exist, but it seems like in the streaming age, we have not truly solved a way for us to be watching things together. And I thought that by now, month umpteen of the global pandemic that we would have figured it out, that I'd be sitting down and being like, hey, I want to watch this movie. Hey, let's watch it at this time for whatever, you know. And that's what I'd like to see solved. I think this is the perfect time to shout out a solvable episode that we did called remote music collaboration online in real time is solvable. All the musicians and ensembles were feeling that so intensely and probably most of them continue to, and like you said there's these small niche fixes that people have figured out and we actually talked about one of those awesome solutions on our show. Before you were host, but so you know. We don't shout out shows that no, I'm just kidding. All solvable. I don't know this time. It was a really inspiring episode because it made it feel like those latency issues could be solved. I will say in my friend group, I am the most annoying person about this. I have such rules about if you miss the cue to start the movie. You're out of the group text. I send everyone a link. I'm not even kidding. I send everyone a link to the world clock website. And I'm like, when this? You better be queued up to zero zero zero zero. Sasha has solved it. And I loved all my Friends along the way. So the world website by yourself. 1111. It's gonna be amazing. It always is like always does awry immediately. But I will say, I think about the sort of corollary to this a lot Ronald. Which I don't know, maybe this is another conversation we can have another time, but what you said about cable TV is so true. And I think that humanity has certainly lost like we've gained a lot with streaming and the individualized cultural consumption that we can make, but I think that humanity has lost something. But devaluing appointment TV. And you see it during the Oscars or basically the Oscars, presidential debates, like maybe the Super Bowl, if that's your thing, but they're like, so few things now, or like the entire world is watching together. If you're on Twitter during the Oscars, everyone is in conversation. And yeah, I just wish that appointment TV came back. Seinfeld lost like any of those, yeah. Exactly. Lost. So we're recording this on a Monday and yesterday was Sunday was the Succession season finale. That's whalers. I haven't watched it yet, please. That's exactly my point. That's exactly where I was going with this. Is that I can't even like, I want to talk about it with people, and I've several friends who are like, I haven't watched yet, and now I'm like, well, you're on the clock, 'cause I want to talk about it with you. And I can't have this moment because you're out here being like, I can't survive it 9 o'clock or Sunday nights and watch this show. We all need to be wild. So yeah, I agree. I would love the return of appointment to me. We've seen some of it with shows like insecure shows like Succession. People are still watching those in bulk, but now because of people's schedules we're separating them. And I think there needs to be maybe another way for us to just be able to be like, all right, we're not going to watch it on Sunday, but we've created some sort of link together where we can all watch it on our televisions like in our most comfortable settings in our own homes. So yeah, that's why I'm with you. I will invest in whatever app you're building for. TV, it's called Ron has problems dot com. I really appreciate you guys joining me today.

"What can listeners do if they're interested in learning more about chronic kidney disease or even the research that you're doing or if they want to get involved? What can listeners do? First of all, get informed. The CDC has an incredible website that talks about kidney disease. I would say, you know, talk to your family members and community because when you talk about it, you'll discover that there's more people you know that have kidney disease than you ever imagined. You know, the other thing is talk to your doctor, talk and say, okay, should I be tested and then what would we do about it? I think that's important. I think people should also if they have loved ones who are affected with kidneys, you should learn about transplantation and living donation, for example. But I certainly urge people to go get informed. Doctor Perotta, thank you so much for being with us today. Always been so fun to talk to you and I tell you that we must have hope and when we think about our healthcare system, understand that compassion is a big part of what we need to build.

Adrian, one of the things I really enjoyed in your book was that you talked about when a call out can be useful. You say, call outs can feel most powerful when they are used with their tactical intention for those with less positional political economic or other power to demand accountability to stop harm or abuse. Which I appreciate and I think you laid that out perfectly with the way that you were talking about R. Kelly. How do we make the distinction between call out cancellation and consequences? Because I hear all three of them being used interchangeably, especially in media, and especially by people who are trying to get themselves out of consequences. Oh, I love it. I think we're still in the birthing stages of figuring out what all these things are. And that's why people are like, it's a whole culture of this. It's a whole culture of them. I'm like, yes, this is in the culture. You know, we are in some ways cancellation is in the culture, right? And the culture is steeped in a punitive culture. So it's like cancellation is just the peak of a certain kind of wave that's happening in the culture. But it's not the only thing that's happening in the culture. And I think what we actually need is an accountability culture or a culture of consequences, where it's like, oh, it's true that you actually did this thing. We know that it's true. And here's something. Here's what a consequence can actually look like. When I think of a call out, the call out functions as an isolating tool instead of a tool of community. And I think that's where when some people use the term call in. The idea is like it's actually supposed to be bringing people deeper into community into a space where they can actually be held versus something where it's like we actually don't want this person to have access to community. I think a consequence, though, to me, a consequence is when it's like, oh, I can draw a direct line. I really can see this consequence makes sense based on what happened. You know what this person did. And I think a lot of times what we're missing is, there's no veracity around what actually happened. We don't know, right? And then there's no clarity on what is the consequence? Is it taking one year out of the spotlight? You know, is it taking a year off of Instagram or whatever? Because that's about what I've been noticing as the patterns. People kind of dip out for a year. And then you see them come back like everything's great, you know? Yeah, yeah, yeah. We don't talk about that other thing. Yeah, we don't, you know? And a lot of and they just move on. So I'm like, we need I'm always interested in what actually works. If that strategy worked, you know, if it was like, dang. We called these people out and rape just stopped. Like, isn't that happening anymore? This really worked. You know, Miriam kaba is someone that I always point people towards. She is an incredible teacher around abolition, particularly prison abolition. And she really talks about that long pattern of harm doing continues in spite of this system of punitive justice, you know, in spite of all those efforts. And she's like, we should just be focused on how we end the harm. That's the only measure. Did the harm end or did it not end? And I think that helps in a lot of these conversations because people get into some moral high ground space, and I'm like, it's not working. You know? Fundamentally, it's not working. So it can't be the right way. I can talk about this with you for. Or is I really appreciate you writing this book. Adrian rebrand. Thank you so much for being with us today. Wow, thank you for having me. This was a great conversation. Adrian Marie Brown is the author of we will not cancel us and other dreams of transformative justice. She's the co host of the podcast.

"Doctor akin before we wrap, I want to ask you about what listeners can do to get more involved. You've invited them to the conversation, but what would that look like? I think we have to think about global solutions, because cyberspace is a global construct. But I think equally, we have to be respectful of national criteria of cultural differences in different countries who want to approach cyberspace in their own way for their own population. So I think that you have solutions that are local country by country. And then you have agreed solutions in shared spaces in cyberspace. We have maritime law for shared waters. We have aviation law for the shared airspace. So I think they're basic things we can agree on, and then there's some things that will need to be legislated country by country. I would ask listeners to reach out to their local legislators, their local politicians. There are a number of bills that are being debated at the moment in the U.S., for example, send her warners safe tech Bill, which will address some of these issues. So get involved become an activist in cyberspace a good activist. One thing that I can mention is that for any listener that is now fascinated by cyber psychology and the way that I am, we are offering the world's first online masters at capital tech and online PhD in cyberpsychology.

"Let me ask you about your own personal relationship to the land. How did that change? As you became more in tuned with your identity and you began to do more of the work, you said, especially in grad school, were there any types of differences that you made in your relationship to the land and the communities around you as you grew more into this work? The biggest thing that has helped me move as an indigenous person and feel like I am moving in a good way in the world is to build and maintain a relationship with whatever land I'm on. So I've grown up in very suburban spaces where the land is super manicured and been completely taken over by cookie cutter houses and things like that. I've lived in very urban cities. And I think the knowledge and recognizing that even those places that have been so separated from the indigenous people who come from those lands, that is still native land. And so understanding whose land I'm on, knowing their name knowing where they are now knowing the stories from that land is really important to me. And then finding ways for me to reconnect with the land has also been very important. So making sure that I build in and it's been hard in the last couple of years because of the pandemic. But making sure I build in travel that takes me back to my traditional homelands, which prior to the trail of tears are in what is currently known as North Carolina and Tennessee, Georgia, being able to take trips back there is really transformative and stand on the land that my people have been on for since time immemorial and that we have these sacred sites that we know our ancestors stood at and prayed at and were there is really powerful. And then I've also been doing I'm working on a new kind of art project around my own family's land displacement to be able to understand that story of where did this disconnection happen for my family in particular. So I mean, trail of tears and then we had allotment land in Oklahoma, but then that land was flooded out for the building of a Lake. And so thinking, and that's another thing that a lot of black community share is this story of constant displacement from and so in learning the history and sort of uncovering it that also helps me to build a relationship to the land and that's really important as well. And to understand why I have grown up so disconnected is that this wasn't a choice that I or my family made. This was a series of policies and events by the settler government that forced me to grow up in this way. So that's a powerful kind of reclamation as well. Do you feel optimistic about native erasure being solved? I think on this show, we say things are solvable, but do you see an end point here or do you feel like there's a point where you'll say I've done enough, I can pass the baton on, what does that even look like for you? It's actually been kind of amazing in the last decade that I thought I was going to be fighting Indian mascots for the rest of my life. I thought I was going to be fighting Halloween costumes. And these really low hanging things that to me just seemed so painfully obvious were harmful. And I for ten years on the blog was like every year at Halloween, had to do another blog post about how you shouldn't dress as a native person for Halloween. Even this year, I was watching on indigenous peoples day that a lot of my native Friends and the students at Brown where I'm a faculty member. They took the day to actually just rest and their friends and their family and be on the land or do whatever it is they wanted. And in years past, it's always had to be the big rally. The big talk, the big education campaign that everything. So those kind of small gains to me, they seem, I mean, they're not insignificant. The fact that we can now be having a meaningful conversation about land back where a decade ago, I was having to say, please don't wear a sacred headdress to Coachella. These are. Yeah. Like I said, I don't think representation is the end goal. But I do think if we get to a point where I and all the other folks who write and talk about representations don't have to keep saying the same things about representation mattering if folks just recognize that indigenous folks exist and still exist and will always be on these lands, then it means we can have the more deeper, meaningful conversations. So that to me is solvable. Doctor king this has been an incredible conversation. Thank you so much for coming on the show. I was my absolute pleasure. Thank you.

"When I was a kid, people in the little town where I grew up used to burn their leaves each fall. Until my dad told all of our neighbors that he would come and pick up their leaves for free, which he used to make a giant compost pile in our backyard. That was 50 years ago, but I still remember it. Because that was my dad's small contribution to making the planet a better place. Actually, my contribution too since who do you think was recruited to pick up all those leaves? That's regenerative thinking. Steps to reverse the damage done. And do you know who has now taken the regenerative path? Walmart. Walmart is working to protect manage or restore 50 million acres of land by 2030. Walmart is also committed to achieving zero waste in U.S. and Canadian operations by 2025, and aspires to accelerate the transition to a 100% recyclable, reusable or industrially compostable packaging. Walmart is focused on regeneration today, so we can all live better tomorrow. Learn more at Walmart, dot com slash live better tomorrow. So how do you decide that your approach is helping enough people to bother doing it? Leadership and government and in The White House put in a lot of effort to figure out what are our goals for this year. Then we wanted to make sure that we were responding to those goals and we were leveraging what we knew from behavioral science to help them achieve those goals more effectively. So this might involve helping student loan borrowers. Repay their loans in a more effective way or understand what their options are or helping farmers get access to loans with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. And then we would also look at other factors, how many people are we going to be able to help through this project? Are we are we operating in the millions? Because if so, yes, that makes a lot of sense for us to work on. And then we also wanted to make sure that the outcome that we were trying to change was significant from a policy perspective. So things like helping workers find jobs, getting more people to sign up for clean energy plans or health insurance. These are all outcomes that are of huge significance. Some of the policy solutions I've read about which come from studying human behavior kind of sound like common sense, talking to students, telling them to sign up for class by text message, having the opt in program or the opt out program, do you think that it's necessary to have a government team dedicated to behavioral science for these policy tweaks to actually be implemented? I'm imagining if I'm a member of Congress and I'm looking at this line item for this team. I'm wondering, do we need a whole team to carry out little tweaks like this? Yeah, so I think one is, you know, some of these insights can absolutely seem like common sense after the fact, but the reality is that they weren't being implemented in our absence. And it's also important to note that behavioral science is a very context specific space to work in. Not all insights will work in all areas, and you need trained behavioral scientists in order to make the right prescriptions to design meaningful experiments to teach us what is working and what context. In the ideal world, some decades from now, it would be amazing if our team was rendered obsolete because agencies were just hiring the relevant people with the relevant skill sets to do this work as a matter of course. Just good government. That is the goal to drive yourself out of existence. But at the time, and it continues to be the case today because the team is very much still around and the Biden administration and was around during the Trump administration doing great work to help on topics like the opioid epidemic and wildfires and whatnot. It's important to sometimes have these dedicated teams that are exclusively focused on the particular goal of translating human behavioral insights into public policy improvements because otherwise it's too easy for it to get ignored. How do we apply these ideas when there's not a dedicated office? State and localities apply some of these principles. Well, the nice thing is actually there's been a flurry of activity in state and local government in which nudge units are sprouting. So lots of state and local governments now have their own nudge units or they are using insights from behavioral science. But there's no one size fits all approach with behavioral science. You can't just say, oh, here are my favorite ten insights. Let me just apply them to all the policies and programs. There is a rigorous science behind it. And you need to make sure that you do have experts who are looking at those optimal translations. Is there anything our listeners can do if they want to if they are listening to this and they're like, man, I want more science and government. I want to inject more. What can they do to help if they want to be a part of this now? So I would say the Bible of behavioral science and policy is this book called nudge and actually Richard thaler and cast sunstein, the authors of this book came out with a final edition version just recently, it actually references the work that's happened in the UK and the United States to try to increase the translation of behavioral science into policy. So I would send listeners to that book first and foremost. On my podcast, the slight change of plans, I had a chance to interview some science experts, where we talk about the science behind changing people's minds with folks like Adam grant, the science and behavior change with doctor Katie milkman. And I would point folks to those specific episodes because I think it's a really nice primer for where the science is at right now when it comes to human behavior. Maya, thank you so much for being with us today. Thanks so much for having me Ronald. It was so much fun to chat with you. Doctor Maya shankar is the founder of The White House's behavioral science team. She served as a senior adviser in the Obama White House.

Don't understand his culture why this should be important to them. Churches or religious organizations are the most philanthropic out there in terms of deploying funds and so there is real tangible benefit for churches and faith organizations to continue to thrive and because they have such a huge profile such a huge public media presence when they do have this moral failure it creates this erosion of not only their massive ministry but also kind of a greater ministry of of christianity and the service that's given out the community by faith communities that's driven by a commitment to the calling that jesus put on our lives All that seems like good stuff to write off all these organizations that are doing a ton of good in the world because there's a select few that are making it look like a clown show i think is a detriment and potentially you're missing on an opportunity to either give or get involved or You know further the betterment of a community or society. I buy sneakers that i liked that. Look good with what. I'm wearing and that literally what that that that's where it ends. It's like i like the issues. I'm gonna wear these. So what about all the people who are just trying to do that. They're not necessarily trying to portray an image of of opulence or wealth or detract from the mission. How would you advise those folks that feel that sort of a conflict with what you're talking about. Well one i think. Humility is usually a good thing to default to for those people that truly are not trying to flex or not trying to portray this false narrative that they're crushing it in life. I think they should be secure in what they wear. Like if you feel good wearing those airmax ninety s or whatever hopefully you can be okay with even people saying. hey dude. those air max. Ninety looked pretty expensive. The thing for me that's helped me. The most is having people around me that know me that can speak into the things that are maybe my blind spots or maybe lies that i'm believing from people that are saying stuff on the internet or whatever having people around you that can say. Hey dude. you're good where those sneakers man like. We know your heart. We know who you are. We know you're not trying to flex on people. It will be another thing. I think if you were posting pick every day wearing a new paris sneaks trying to have a super curated image for whatever reason trying to impress people. Hopefully you also have people around you that said hey dude it looks like you really love yourself right now. You really you really into a lot of money on sneakers that kind of thing so like it's it's on you for personal responsibility and to be okay with the things you enjoy in life but also great to have people around you can also validate it or speak into it saying the hey man maybe should reevaluate what. You're posting a couple of weeks ago and Couple episodes ago for the listeners. We talked with molly. Burhan's who is the ceo and founder of good lands which is mapping all of the land of the catholic church and then also giving an assessment of how to use that land for the good of humanity and for the good of dannatt. Yeah so i bring that up a little different a little more large scale and probably more important. Well okay and and. I think that's what i what i would press. You want us to say like phase one of this is that you brought attention to it. You're in the mapping face but the face to portion of it is the go to the church and say here's what here's our findings and here's some recommendations on how you could be held accountable. So let's talk about what phase two looks like for you like in terms of the actionable items and the solvability how we fix it. Yeah i came up with a few things that are kind of have caused us to deviate. I think from specifically what we're called to as christians. I first big proposal. A recommendation would be to spend some time defining redefining the mission vision of their church and anchoring everything to that based on what the bible specifically lines out for churches because right now many of our biggest churches spent a ton of time on ancillary stuff that takes manpower takes attention. It takes money when other things are being neglected and so if i could get churches to maybe redefine their priorities and align everything they do off of those priorities. It's just like running a company in in a way we're basically saying we're not gonna do anything unless it involves furthering the mission of our church which should be to preach the word make disciples encourage community take care of the less fortunate and there's a lot of versus around that in the bible but many churches are more concerned with conference attendance and music labels and branding all that kind of stuff that can have a net positive but as a baseline is a lot of extra and then on the kind of as a one a i would say audit and radically change. Your spending like the you know you vote with your dollar in everything. And if you're spending millions on is this kind of exaggerated. But if you're spending millions on smoke machines and leather couches instead of taking care of the widows and the orphans in your immediate community that's a misaligned priority. And i would encourage them to audit how they spend their money how they deploy their capital like if you're spending eighty five percent of funds on operations which are just to raise more funds verses deploying capital out to the community and into missions. I think that's skewed. It sounds like you're asking churches as a whole to open themselves up and to actually give themselves opportunity to be the altruistic organizations that we can expect to be which is something. that's i think is good for nonbelievers and believers alike. But what about when we're talking about individuals because a lot of the criticism that you have goes towards either the Faith leaders or us as individuals that are part of the church communities There's there's one big one that is going to be steeped in irony. But i that's basically where i live all the time and so i'm not scared of that but i would say consider taking some serious time off social media to focus on the local church that goes all the way up to the church leader but also to the member or even just like the attendee. Many of the things that are driving our culture of appearance and production celebrity and money. All that kind of stuff are definitely Accentuated by social media and this is coming from a guy that the only reason you and i are talking is because of social media. I recognize that but i also think that i probably have a pretty good credible position to say that social media can also very much be a detriment one conflict from the mental health aspect but also it it skews perceptions about what a successful church is see people with you know better music or better production or more beautiful worship team or whatever it can make you want to strive for those things and you can see gonna lower attended. Churches trying to copy the aesthetic of some of the seemingly most successful churches. And so i would just say that's distracting. A lot of us and i would encourage everyone to take time off social media to focus if you truly care about the flourishing of the church being involved with your church community you should care about the local portion of that social media's and aspirational playground spent a lot more time than i love to admit comparing my life to strangers and friends alike. Celebrities and other influences are selling a lifestyle or an idea of what we can be is part of that appeal whether you're a churchgoer. Not there's no real way to stop the impact of social media except the unplug every now and then remind yourself that this isn't real. I feel as a deeply spiritual person attending church and being with fellow congregants in person in the moment is an excellent added to all of that. So i asked been what advice heat offer churches to help. Keep us grounded. There is a way to be excellent without being vain and even excellent at a large scale versus trying to be put on a concert or put on a light show. Or whatever you know. There's churches out there that have really good worship teams. That aren't are choking you with fog and like strobe lights and such. You know we're like there's a church here in dallas where they had they had these levitating neon drummer boys at christmas service. Where these dudes floating playing these marching snare drums. That kind of thing. It's like dude. You can worship the creator of the universe by using your gifts that he gave you in a way that is excellent. it's not distracting. It leads people in a time of worship while also not being vain or appearing. Like you're trying to win the contest of most produced. Sunday service. That kind of thing. What does this issue look like when it is Able to be solved them. When do you feel like all right. I don't need to post-botham arms gonna post about you. Know my sandwich or like. Am i going to do this anymore. What is your work. I think incrementally that. Not just because of what i've done but maybe a shift in the priorities narrative on social media about church guys have seemingly stopped and i think for the better at stopped making as many posts about themselves like on a bigger scale. I think solved version of this. Is i mean this is very idyllic but a church that helping people grow in there. It's like this is christina's but they're walk their faith walks or whatever their walk with jesus The people are happy to congregate and share in every aspect of community with each other. Whether or not looking to gain anything other than just to be mutually encouraged to share with each other to share resources with each other. The really like emulate. What the early church did. After jesus was on the earth and then i think a big piece is seeing churches. Spend an uncomfortable amount of money on taking care of others instead of just building platforms for their main guy. There's gonna be no perfect churches because churches are filled with humans and all humans are imperfect and so. I don't expect that. But i do expect christians that care about the flourish image church to push for a more authentic representation of following jesus and also hopefully accountability for their leaders but also accountability for themselves. All of that will be a win and will be closer to being solved issue of consumerism and obsession with celebrities in church. Ben thank you so much for being with us. It's been a pleasure.

They provided the opportunity to teach them Citizen ship tests right through their collection. They taught people and then what they also did was provided a space for them.

That myself was reading mountain frustrations art museums in the age of black power even how to be an anti-racist all of those new shutout farm.

I had to explore the depths of what that grief meant or said to me. I had to learn how to belong to myself and in that i had to say goodbye to things that i wasn't going to get so i would never get the praise and adoration from my family around being in a smaller body.

"You hope to see in the fashion world As a result of your influence in the next five to ten years. I guess we could say we're still token is right like it's still like a niece issue to. Oh look at the body issue or look at look at this runway show. We included three plus models. Hell amazing are we. you know. And so it's still kind of a talking point and the headline win. A plus size model does something. And so i think when plus size models and when plus is blocked models are being included consistently in campaigns and in fashion editorials like when our size there are being offered at every store. And it's not the exception but it is the rule. I think that's when it truly gonna feel like you know. There has been a shift in the tide where we are just included. And it's kind of the exception for us to not be included versus to be included working listeners. Who are struggling with self hatred and body image issues due to combat them. And what can listeners do to support people who are struggling with body image issues and self adrian. Yeah so i think a couple things but one thing i always start with is like if you are struggling to accept your body Following influencers or just people who look like you is life changing. And i know it sounds kind of superficial or not that important but i cannot emphasize enough how much representation matters and how much seeing someone who looks like you and who reflects your body and your experience is important so that even if when you're following some influences in the beginning you might even be judging them because a lot of us have internalized shame and internalize fat phobia so you might be like. Oh she should not be wearing that like why is she wearing a string bikini. You might have that initial gut reaction and that's because you have been conditioned to feel that way until like it's even more important for you to follow those people over time what you'll find. Is that like those reactions will dissipate because when you're seeing that on a day-to-day basis in your feed and you are normalizing that to yourself and realizing oh wow. These women like themselves in our allowing themselves to express themselves through fashion or through creativity and like enjoying their lives. And like when you seeing fat person do all the things you've been told they're not supposed to do and you see that consistently over time you give yourself that grace to and that permission to live that way as well.

"Equity. I mean it sounds like you're saying the transportation equity begins with data. I think everything begins with data. So take that with a grain of salt train transportation is in a bad way america. it's equitable it's destroying the climate. It kills forty three thousand people a year and like our bridges are falling down. Like we're pretty bad so we have to change and to think of a massive systemic change without data. I just think that's insane. But i agree. It's not data loan. We are a tool for smart people motivated by the right things to do their job or easily How do you motivate private companies to care about public issues like climate change their two ways. You get corporations to care about climate change one. Is you point out to them that it will have a huge impact on their bottom line. Either today or in ten years and a lot of corporations are there right they get that and the second way is their staffs starts to throw a fit so we help. We have helped some staff throw fits quietly. We don't do it that directly so we do. Do you want to stay. Include that in the starting we point out. Is that staff. If all your staff have to drive their own cars fifty miles each way like that will dwarf the climate impact of your office building within a couple of years. Gotcha so we we've. We've worked on that okay. I think that's a good strategy. Our listeners help like where what could someone who wants to be like a more responsible and better city resident. How can they help right now. And what about people that don't live in mike. Bustling cities people that live in more rural areas. How can we all help. Make it make transportation Better for everyone. But one thing that i think is fun is to track your own data for a few days. One thing that. I think sounds simple but nobody gets. Is that your short trips. Are less carbon emitting than your long trips. So i've had some friends know lovely eco hippie friends who say things to me like well you know. I took a bus every day to work. The only reason i have a car is for like you know. We can adventures to go hiking. I'm like well. That is a hundred and ten mile drive like i'd rather you drive to work every day. And maybe carpool or take the train adventure. So really think it's the length of the trip that matters so track your data. I think it'll surprise you. It might make you more open to an electric car and it might help you think. About which trips really matter. I also think that as a citizen as a private individual there are three personal infrastructure decisions. You making transportation where you live which car you buy if you buy a car and where you spend most of your days which is usually where you work and if you optimize those decisions a little like if you move to an apartment that's closer to work or choose a job that's a little closer. You've optimized your transportation footprint and you don't have to like agonize about it every day so optimize those big for you know if you choose a car that gets fifty mpg over forty mpg. You don't have to think about it as much so like think about the big decisions that matter and like stop freaking out if you forget your cloth grocery bags once those infrastructure decisions matter more where you live where you work relationship between them and what car you drive if you drive a car. As citizens citizens have a lot of power about city level urban design decisions. If you show up there's always feedback meetings and if you show up you will make a difference. And i think the other thing to remember is a lot of people show up or people who have a very vested interest in things being the same which maybe good. Sometimes it's not or people who just assume the worst and usually the staff at these meetings again. It's not elected its staff who've chosen this career. Usually they are trying really hard. And if someone calmly showed up and said can you show me the data. Can you show me the alternatives. That would be so excited and that person would be so impactful so showing up and showing up trying to work with the staff instead of assuming the worst of them. I think is really powerful. You have any books or movies that you think you would recommend for people to learn more about transportation and transportation equity well now. I want everybody to watch mission. Impossible three Three paul the best one. So okay now. I know i'll watch them. I'll ashland tonight. My favorite book about transportation is by john. Mcphee scott uncommon carriers and. It's a book about the people who do the work of freight hauling he just rates so beautifully and with such dignity about the people who do this work and the incredible -ness of the machines that get are t shirts and our popcorn to our houses. Like whether it's the freight boats with a giant containers along contracts that book. It gave me a sense of off and respect for the sort of societal achievement. That is our transportation system. And i think that's healthy if you're thinking about changing something the the infrastructure bill is not called the infrastructure bill. It's called the american jobs act. And i think it is very important is for technologists like me that we don't just assume that are efficient approach and it is more efficient is neutral like to society and to think about these industries were disrupting.

"Use it and scan it so it's is effective as the original credential itself raid. So i mean that's something elite we talk about too is the cdc card or your test results. Those are the baseline credential. That's what you'd need won't when we were reopening in you know you wanna get into like. Let's say a fully vaccinated section a yankee stadium or something. You need to show your vaccine card right so this is ineffective replacement for that or substitution for that. So we know that you had to work a lot with Federal medical databases and the new york state Databases as well was working with them. A challenge or How how. I was that relationship that was not an impediment for us. It was a feature so new york state. We have a database for all of our test records. So every cova test. That's administered new york state and every vaccination that is given is in is in our new york say database and that is the engine that really drives the excelsior pass when you scan and excelsior pass not only seeing that okay somebody showing me their vaccinated or they got a negative result. Would you also get as a result that says new york state has validated this pass against their data. It's it's you know we talk a lot about the comfort of the getting the past but from a business standpoint to have that peace of mind when you conduct that scan think that's a huge piece to and you guys have options for folks. Who are visiting new york. So that's something we're working on. You alluded to this earlier. Right different states have different. Approaches thoughts on vaccine passes and these records were working certainly with our neighboring states and trying to have some kind of data sharing or ability to issue this pass especially down in new york city area. There's a lot of folks from connecticut new jersey and neighboring states. We want to make it as easy for them to come into new york as possible to anyone listening who is coming to visit new york any records you have is still valid and can still be used so anyone who's asking for vaccinated folks.

Everybody an do you have any experiences with yourself. going out. And 'cause i imagine you have to be an evangelist for the past in some ways but have you been using it yourself. Yea certainly. I've gone right away. I can say i mean early on. I mean just when the two biggest experiences was we went to a rangers game and we went to the barclays center for a nets game. So going to that. And seeing that the i fans the first couple of days people being able to go in and see their teams live again was just you know creates a see. I mean for me personally to call to just to see something you've worked on and pull it out on a phone. Just have somebody at msg scanner. I mean that's a pretty cool feeling right it. We don't always get to build something and then go play with it and watch it work. I've have you had the opportunity to be like. I helped make that. That's right past number seven but Well you know the funny thing is i mean for me. I had to wait till i was eligible for vaccine so actually there was a period of time where excelsior pass was out there and i couldn't get a pass for my vaccine pass. I did get a bunch of test passes so so. That was something. I was able to try out. Do you think. The creation of the app has encouraged more people to go get vaccinated. I hope so. Aside from the public health from the personal health reasons to get vaccinated. You're seeing now what you can do with that vaccination status just look at sports right you can have back to normal. Full capacity. Sections for people were vaccinated. May my brother's huge islanders fans. They're very excited right now. You can go to nasdaq aluminium. You can go and watch and be with the crowd like you were before covid. That is such a huge is just so uplifting just for me personally just going from this journey again. If we go back to friday the thirteenth going from where we were trying to buy medical supplies that were impossible to got to now helping. People go to a sports game with all their friends. I mean what a turn around I know i talked a bit about like the business community A huge benefit of this program is the ease and the efficiency of scanning people into your establishment. I mean we've all scan. Qr codes and stuff. We know how quick this stuff is. Compare that to you. Have a line of fifty people at msg or a club or show or whatever and you've gotta go look through card and check. The dates have fifteen days past. Or your checking a test. Is it within three days. It takes a minute i actually. I mean i saw this when we were doing. Our pilots like madison square garden. You see someone in the dark with a flashlight. Looking at this piece of paper trying to calculate. Is this a valid test results. Or is this the that takes time so this is this is a much more efficient and much easier so in most cases like If they have the vaccine past the only way that they can get it is by having either a clear covid test of clear vaccination status or clear Pcr status. if i'm not mistaken so do you guys run into Incidences where people do not scan clear a based on their even though they have a a qr code that says and they are one of the things and this was primarily with the test results. Those would expire after a certain amount of time. Right you you had to be within a three day range so you would get an a negative result you know the skin would not work or you get the axe because it's expired size expire Or somebody was trying to create one it you know and it was not recognizable. qr code. Let's say somebody's trying to recreate this. In some way or or spoof this so those those would show up negative. What advice would you give to other cities and states exploring this avenue. I would say focus on you know the objective which is trying to get people to come out keep it easy. Keep it secure.

"Runs the risk of further. Isolating them all right. So if you have a situation in your life where you're going to be stuck inside and you're going to be watching tv if you're not playing a video game with friends. Then why wouldn't i wanna give you the avenue to have these social the way that you wish it to be. You know other people out there who don't follow the everything in moderation rule of life probably. They're probably are people who have gotten an adaptive controller xbox and they blew off going to somebody's wedding and doing a toast because they went around rather play the latest. You know super mario sonic game. I can't tell you whether or not that's happened. When i can tell you is that there are more people who would have been bored out of their minds as they not have the ability to connect with these virtual worlds than people who misuse the technology and have gotten addicted to shooting involved with their friends. What's what's your favorite game that you're playing right now. My favorite game right now is probably rocket week. Yes yes okay you are you on. Cbs four. i'm on three. I'm on pc. Okay we'll have to. We have to exchange. My gamertag is oh. It's big ron exchange game. But i'm rusty. I haven't played in a while and i started playing fortnight in during the pandemic and but i mean there's something there's something humiliating about being devastated by like an eleven year old but she were killed by a bunny rabbit who was surfing on a rocket. Who was doing cheering chirping noises. That manage the home in on you from one thousand feet away. There be mad about that like it's not it's not serious and you know That's what i really like about those kind of games. It's just that it's a competitive nature and sure. I'm proud of the fact that i only play with a mouse and a tracker on my head. I don't use keyboard. I don't use a controller and i'm freaking diamond in rocket week so i was gonna ask because i'd like a silver three. I want to say so you're of the game is just like soccer. You're just trying to score the ball into the other team's goal and there's a hierarchy system. Steve you wanna explain the hierarchy system. Yes the hierarchy the way the game works like every video game has a ranking system. Where you start at bronze and then you progress to silver and gold and platinum and diamond in the champion and what was. The ranks are changes based on the game. But it's always the same five rank system which basically allows the game to put you up against people assembler skill level so that people who are lower skill level don't get destroyed by the highest levels and feel bad about themselves and then the people at the top. Don't get bored because they don't have a competition. Exactly you know it's funny is i spent so many years getting destroyed in every other game online saying you know what i just wanna play on line anymore until rocky lee comes along. It's like come on ronald you'll play with a bunch of other people who are all as terrible as you are and you'll have put it will be really competitive. 'cause you'll all like all like y'all be terrible in the same way together while like learning the game steve. Clearly i love video games. Video games and i'm guessing a lot of our listeners. Do to what are some things they can do to help. Make gaming more accessible for everyone. Course i'm gonna tell you that. We need donations. You can go to able to gamers dot org. You can check us out on any of the social media's able gamers so you have a dollar five dollars twenty thousand dollars. It doesn't matter if you have that kind of cash give out that it helps. So the average controller is three hundred and fifty dollars to make the average session for someone to sit with us and the fully-funded to go through peer. Counseling is about eight hundred. Fifty dollars goes through up much higher if someone has a profound disability that takes you know more time getting to know them and their situation and how to help them on a very personal level but you. That's that's where essentially your donations go. So if you have the ability to we always say please consider donation if you are not in a place where financially that makes sense you can always just talk about. It will gamers and people with disabilities now. That sounds extremely generic. Here's the thing about that game. Companies only care about what is being talked about so people aren't talking about how accessibility options are important about how they want to support people with disabilities about how people with disabilities manner in games and they want to see that representations for people that don't look like them than the support goes away the only reason that company's support initiatives for people that are not quote unquote in the mainstream audience is by them figuring out that oh they are in the mainstream audience and they do matter and we can make money off of them. And that's and that's how we get that done by going out twitter. You're going out to instagram talking about this kind of thing. Tweeting at your favorite companies face booking. You know that's all you can support it. Will game was the best and if you're a developer out there listening goto accessible games. It's a free thing you can go check out all the material for free right now. There is a certified course that you can take for a couple of hundred dollars to be certified to be able to be accessible developer. But if that's not within the budget of your studio you can always look at the material for free online and check it out and incorporate that into your next game. Are there any movies or books to learn more about assessing ability generally there is a great documentary or crypt camp. It's on netflix. Is right now. You can check it out. It goes through the entirety of what it's like to be a disabled person. And what it is that people maybe not seeing in their everyday lives to people with disabilities have to go through. There's also a a great movie that was released a years ago. All about the ada the creation of it called the sound of thought and it's really About how these two guys when he was disabled one who was not wanted the ability to go out in the public without being harassed for being disabled and how businesses really weren't taking the disability community seriously. It's very heart wrenching to me to remember to remind people that if you are thirty five years old or older within your lifetime. It was legal to discriminate against people with disabilities. If i had gone into a mcdonalds. When i was one years old they could've kicked me out for using a wheelchair because i was upsetting the other guests and that's something that a lot of people tend to forget because we have very short memories when it comes to things like this so remember that you know. It wasn't that long ago that we said that no disabled people are important and having those rights was important for that community and it still is today. Thank you so much for being with us today.
