He's getting some good z's and please listeners. Do not e mail me a bad sleep training. I'm not interested in your opinion. Do baby's gonna do parents are gonna apparent <hes> so when i'm sitting silently one handed in the nursery sitting in the dark in the middle of the day i play solitaire crazy solitaire 'cause do you remember do you remember in windows. The you can play solitaire arguably freecell. There are other solitaire games that i'm just learning about now. Try peaks. What do you mean. Is it solitaire the name of the game. I think it is the name of a game but it's also a family of games so the one you know most classical is solitaire klondike solitaire. I'm getting you're going that way. After those great yeah song tears that i was playing is a classification of games games you play alone solitaire solitaire card game right yeah solid so the ones the ones that i they have access to their like five of them and i have expanded my knowledge of solitaire greatly back the windows ninety five solitaire hook you. I mean the most enjoyment when you can please when you complete a deck. It just felt so. Are you still getting that same same fab -solutely exactly the same feeling when you're done but honestly straight up solitaire you you can get through a game of solitaire pretty pretty quick so freecell. I think is considerably harder. Well try peaks. Really fun tried triplex seven-minute seven-minute dark room with the baby and anything to do. That's all great well then we're in agreement. Okay sorry so that is the video game. I have been spending most time. I'm with but it. It's probably not the answer. You're looking for well. No any answer is fine with me. I i am going to talk about a different video. Game called minecraft love minecraft in graph okay great blatantly one time. Guess what a study out of iowa state university has recently released findings that playing minecraft my actually boost is your creativity and here's the thing i really. I cannot wait to tell you about how they did this study. It is so funny. It's just like are they. Scientists i ant okay so this is that he did was they compared the effect of playing minecraft with or without instruction to watching t._v. or playing every scar game those who were given the freedom to play minecraft without instruction were more creative those who were given the freedom to play minecraft without instruction. They're just been like go play yeah. Here's how they came to that conclusion. So there were three hundred and fifty two participants they were allowed allowed to play forty minutes of minecraft or they watch t._v. The and they were not given any instruction for the minecraft. They were just like here. Go do thing and then after the forty minutes they were asked complete several creative tasks the way that they measured the creative production was they asked each participant to draw creature from a the world that was much different than earth so the more human like the creature that somebody drew the lower scores. It is the best test of grid heavy yes so if someone does a stick like figure with a third arm. They're like zero zero not creative at all. The less human like creatures that were drawn were scored way higher so that brings me so much joy. It's so funny. I it isn't it. Isn't it an entirely subjective. How's that good day to undergraduates in a room i mean i don't know let's get a bunch of kids in here. It's three hundred and fifty two people you'd study and they're like ok guys at the end of this forty minutes. I need you to drag creature and to be clear it's not from earth and it's a non firmer funny and weird. I got you yeah more than anything. I want to see a bunch of zeros. I want to say the least creative creatures nature's and i must be the people who just watched t._v. Western mark. I mean that's what they're that's the high that's their hypothesize. I think the idea <hes> you can be am. I hearing you right that they had increased creativity scores by playing minecraft without instruction yeah so just being allowed to go yeah verses someone who's l- with someone standing over the shoulder saying pick up that would build hold your house or somebody who just watching t._v. Or somebody playing a race card game gotcha. That's so neat. Thank you for sharing that with welcome. <hes> i play minecraft. I wish that i could have given you. I could have asked you to dry creature after one of your solitaire games what came out i mean i think if what have you just drew a as far yeah like a two of hearts. It's i think solitaire only makes me more analytical way less creative. Oh it's all it's all numbers. Especially usually try peaks. I'm gonna keep talking. I mean here's the thing with try. Don't wanna get a card flipped over and from three pyramids of cards cards. You can go one card up or one card down from the face up card. It is so addictive it sounds like gambling ah paying money for their going actually need a couple of bucks. Oh god all right. That's good. Thanks for listening.

Lies We Believe About God, Part 4
"Word of truth so we can worship God in spirit and truth deepening our knowledge of God thereby enabling us to deepen our love welcome to where we are studying to show ourselves approved rightly okay so there you have it right from the inspired authoritative word of God that governments exist because God put the for there is no authority except from God and those which exist are established by God number eleven is this God blesses my politics God blesses my politics well suited or originated by God in quote now that does not entirely true chapter thirteen does state very clearly says this quote every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities governments now as I said God is not a member of a political party but he has ordained in decreed that govern so Picking up where we left off yesterday I think we left off yesterday talking about how God wants to be a priority that was one own who I authored the shack his newest book is entitled Lies We believe about God and in this Book William that he outlines and will look and see why these lies are actually true or if they're not true why they are a distortion of the the tea party does not mean you are a Christian but on page one a one of his book he says this quote government is not instant Paul Young gives us twenty eight what he calls lies that we people have commonly believed about God and we are discussing this because his that is I would agree with him on the face of it that that that is true God does not bless our politics truth so a good opportunity for us to kind of flex some discernment and Theological Muscles here and be equipped to be able to engage our free while it is true that God is not a Democrat and God is not a Republican or God is not a wig or torey or something like that Romans the dead horse regarding the shack but this is a really good opportunity for us to exercise discernment in looking at some of these lies and family members and Co workers who probably are in enamored with the shack or maybe even reading this book okay there William Paul Young is wrong when he says that God does not create or institute makes valid points actually about confusing godliness with politics in those two are not to be confused because you're a republican or a conservative remember I have to say that God even decreed government the guy even degreed communism or ends you and yours doing well and I want to thank you for joining me we continue our study today into the newest book by William Paul Yet are Fidel Castro Barack Obama you know I don't think anybody listening to this radio program was a fan of Barack Obama I certainly was not but I have I spoke the shack was such an enormously popular book I sold well in excess of twenty million copies and so if this book even sales admits exist and governments that the governments that do exist are there by God and if you read Romans thirteen literally and I don't know how else to read it then one percent of what his other book did than it is something definitely worthy of our discussion worthy of our attention and as I said this is not just to kind of you know be ears I think that is I think he was part of God's judgment on us there's I would be hard pressed to tell you one single thing that Barack Obama did with which I would agree but it was God's will that he be there and he was the lies and he says that we believe about God and God is a magician we talked about that looking here at my notes so the next line he's line I just make an easy statement that government is not institute or originated by God and when you read through this chapter you see that he has a pacifist in case Oh it's it's playing very loose with the text in very disingenuous with the intent of the Scriptures I've been the knee and admit that it was God's will that Barack Obama be present in the United States for eight years had I know it was God's will because he was president of the United States deep threat it could be very well real threat I mean if somebody breaks into my home I have to assume they don't have my best intention at heart if somebody in fact he makes a statement he says quote is somewhere on page one a one one onto but he says quote a gun is an immediate response to a perceived host of things that God did not originate but submits to because we human beings have brought them to the table well moved threat so you sees he's very much anti-gun he doesn't like guns well a gun is an immediate response but it may not be just a six into my home they're not there to you know bring me a birthday cake or something they're there to to do me or my property or my you get the sense that William Paul Young's God little g God is this God who is kind of he's not decreeing things he's not family harm so it he's really disingenuous when he says a perceived threat now somebody breaks them your home I'm calling that a threat all right so I dispense with the whole notion that God's submits to anything got you say he has a very high view of man a very low view of God that is that is one another lie he says God created my religion this is line number twelve says that is a lie well ordering things he's not he's not certainly not sovereign he's not in control he's kind of responding to changing Changing circumstances on the Ground Legion in and of itself I mean most religions obviously are false but the Bible does say something about True Religion does not it does a distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world now this is not a work salvation obviously James as writing from the presupposition William Powell young you when you read this book you see he does not like religion he says quote own page one on one zero nine he says quote religion is among a whole I believe in Christ but you're not out there doing things you're not out there you don't have any works you don't have any fruit of your conversion then that's worthless religion here's a big one he says here's a lie you need to get saved according to William Paul Young that is a lie that is him and you keep yourself unstained by the world alright his next lie line number thirteen in James Chapter One verse Twenty Seven James Says Pure in undefined religion in the sight of our God and father is this to visit orphans and widows is a lie I want to read to you what he himself says out of his book lies we believe about God on page one fifteen eating our salvation after you sign your informed of the fine print in the contract there is a proliferation of expectations that no one he's at True Religion Though the point is that True Religion is at once you are in union with Christ then you do these things you visit the orphans and the widows you help drink manager in eventually reached the star level if you don't well we don't WanNa talk about that do we okay since you brought it up if you don't follow through told you about minimum performance standards time and money commitments and innumerable rules if you behave right and meet performance objectives you could become retail you again he says here down just a couple of paragraphs on the same page he says the good news is not that Jesus has opened up the possibility that is his understanding of the Gospel Oak I would be hard pressed to come up with a more skewed man centered understanding of the Gospel than that salvation and you have been invited to receive Jesus into Your Life The Gospel is that Jesus has already included you into his life in much of Christianity it is quote saying the sinner's prayer now we are in someone's down line in they get a reward for facility no he's it's like we make moves and God has to respond and he's really busy up there trying to catch up with all the things that we're in everything he does is just kind of in in response aunt won't make it any less or more true in these as saving faith is not our faith but the faith of Jesus an excuse me page one sixteen on page one sixteen empower young says he says perhaps you get an invitation from a friend you go a well why would I ever think this is great news unbelievable that is his view of Christianity difference on your commitment you will be in danger of being eternally tormented in a lake of fire and if you don't get the ones you love in your down line they will too it to his relationship with God the father in into his anointing in the Holy Spirit the good news is that Jesus did this without your vote in whether you believe it or not itself Christian with his worldview he could find a ton of other religions out there that would be far more accommodate ah described maybe it is Jesus or way to ease your loneliness or a promise of life after death then there is a transaction a signing on the dotted line it almost like a plan B. or C. or deer year F- or whatever in response to things that we're doing that is not the god of the Bible that is not the god of the Bible now such thing let me read to you John Chapter One verse three John Chapter One verse three says this all things came into being through him and apart from him nothing in his Gospel in fact on page one seventeen he says this quote every single human being is in Christ and he cites John Chapter one God doesn't have faith faith is something that we have and we place in God God doesn't have any faith that was such a disaster hi deep breaths okay one thing Jesus does not have faith God does not have faith okay there's there there there as who wrote verse twelve so don't you think context would dictate some meaning and understanding here not for William Paul Young no he he that the people to whom he is writing are in union with Christ he's writing to believers so basically what he's saying is this if you just profess Christ only those who have received him as many as received him to them to them not everyone to them he gave the right to gross gross it is amazing to me that this man is even re- I don't even know why bothers to call him his he has got a fundamentally flawed understanding of the Gospel he says it's like well you pray the centers prairie sign on the dotted line and then all the children of God even to those who believe in his name he says later he says Jesus is the savior of all humankind especially it sounds like basically that's what he is he's got a Buddhist philosophy really I mean it's it's it's so humanistic it's a it's an incredibly all things and nothing that has ever come into being ever came into being apart from him he's the creator but that does not mean you are in Christ or person is it might trip you up with if you don't rightly understand it first Timothy four ten says this quote we have fixed our hope on the living God who is to this concept of being in Christ and John is very clear in verse twelve that it is not everyone who is in to become children of God even to those who believe in his name now it's the same person John who wrote Verse Three Relievers I Timothy Four ten let's discuss this a little bit because this is tricky now if if somebody were to come to you and routine I three as his support for that that every single person is in Christ John One three and Christ is in them in crisis in the Father Oil Difference John Chapter One verse three says in came into being that has come into being kate this has nothing this is simply saying that crisis the Creator in he has created leading to him and would be a far better fit then Christianity I mean he he could be I would recommend to him Buddhism versus and he would have read John Chapter One verse twelve which says this but as many as received him to them he gave the right flat out says John One three says something that it does not say in then he ignores John One verse twelve that actually does speak we see that there's it's a distinction between all men in believers now if God brings all men to heaven how can the same be true only white man can be saved or only Asian men can be saved or only with being in union with him William Paul Young completely ignores for example John Chapter One verse twelve why didn't he just looked down a few verses nine Eskimos can be saved he is not he is not confined the offer of salvation to anyone class of man in Christ in a in a salve vic sense in a relational sense no not at all just means he created all things doesn't have anything to do find the offer of salvation to any one class of men in other words God has not said aw or gender or ethnicity anything like that God's people will come from every tongue tribe and it's ever ever been born every man woman child that's ever been born no all men without any distinction without any confinement in other words he's not just quote especially for believers so even reading this just just the verse itself even removed from its context is reading the verse in English a savior of all men especially of believers in quote day what if you don't know the meaning of that verse don't understand it it's Palming by this okay here's what he means point number two God it it means this first Timothy Fourteen four verstand means that God has not confer in John Chapter Twelve verse thirty two he said if I be lifted up from the earth I will draw all men unto myself what does he mean by that every man saying saving people from Ukraine he's not just saving people from Trinidad Tobago he's not just saving people in New Zealand boarded view of the Gospel who say that is actually a lie that you need to get in he says he says the beautiful beautiful thing is is that God has already included you in nation right revelation chapter seven verse nine God's people will be will be coming from every tongue tribe and nation also Jesus stated addiction between the all men and the believers are something that is true about the believers that apparently is not true about the all men okay so that's first point you oh scripture revelation Chapter Seven John Chapter Twelve is clearly what it means in when you think about how many babies there is a distinction when when Paul says and First Timothy Four who is a savior of all men especially of believers so there's obviously some then you're gonNA burn in a fire and oh by the way all the people that you lead in sooners prayer if they don't do the same thing well they're going to burn that is a sudden it's like a bait and switch then all of a sudden you're told oh you've gotta meet performance standards and you gotta go to church and you gotTa do this you got to do that and you gotta give money and if you don't do that well it all men everywhere without any distinction of class or ethnicity that's what he means that is clear teaching tax if you caught flat-footed I timothy four ten cutting trip you up a little bit because it says that the living God is the savior of all men but the and notice it says especially of believers so what does this mean is is God the savior in a salvage of all men everywhere like everyone on who's ever been born or everyone who has ever been conceived let's two points to make about I fourteen even reading in English a seven minute video from Kosti Han who's been gracious to Record a video for me that's GonNa be on there that that's going to be worth the price miscarriages and abortions and and children who died and they go immediately to haven't straight to heaven and that is

"Audio for nine zero. Hey It's Bernie Book on the twentieth of the second of Twenty twenty talking about audits that I need. I need an audit because of three things. Free Things I've Lost I. I've lost my three seven. One thousand focus started out the year. Saying I'll contact three people a day. Seven minute workout with Dylan. Write one thousand words a day. Haven't done those things regularly. GotTa gotTa kill that. So I'm going to go after the three people by focusing on folks that can make an impact. I'll go after Mid performer a low performer and a high performer. And anyone of my modules every day. That's what I'll do because I think it'll make an impact Dylan I. We're going to do seven minute. Workouts Right Dylan. Are you GONNA hold till down my feet so I can do my sit ups GonNa Count? The number of push ups that I do. We'll get back into the routine. We will the thousand word thing is something that really good about when I do it and I gotTa make that happen. I have to make that happen. Even if it's just a diary entry of a thousand words right also lost myself funding. So used fun stuff. Like Google one patriarch on web hosting on the back of stuff. That was in our current account. And I'm not doing that. I fell off the cliff. It was started by moving out moving house and doing a lot of of home repair buying equipment buying things that we needed everything from power power. Tools Dylan's pinwheels. Well I'm letting Dylan by penguins. Even though the last time he bought penguins they were too euro for four of them which is more than we normally spend. We look for them to be half that price or no more than one euro fifty four of them. We buy too many penalties. Because now it's happening is dillon. Doesn't just eating them but mom's eating them and so as MIA so the poor penguins. Which would last almost a week now rarely last more than two days are eight to get back some of that self funding to improve the current account. I need to do course development work where I am on the cloud digital campus. And they'll do that I finally. I've lost my daily recap. I used to be able to look ahead by a day or two to a calendar and then look at the stuff that happened on my handset and interact with those things. I haven't done that either. Really bugs me so making proper checklist tick off the things I need to do at night because if I push those things to the morning things like walking the dog. It's the way so do at night. Wrap up Successful Day with a checklist and then use that tick awfullest to plan. What I'm doing next day next planet forward. I think that's better for those who are inside the technical side amusing zoo mate six on instagram. Where my handle was top gold? You can see some of the setup.

Interview with Kyle T Kadish: Controlling Your Taxes
"Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the three x value growth podcast my name is terry solve coming to you as always some new hampshire my piece of new hampshire trivia for this episode is that allen bartlett shepherd junior the first american to travel in space is from dairy new hampshire my town on joined today by kyle kadish of advantage wealth solutions stars is very much welcome kyle thank you very much very glad to be here today i am so glad you are really i know how busy schedule isn't just finding tied to make this happen i really appreciate you finding the time where you are so much in demand i feel were really fortunate to have you here for this interview thank you again an so everyone else appreciates what you bring to the table kyle i just wanna details on it since two thousand four kyle has worked with investors who take advantage vantage of investment opportunities across all markets infocus has been introducing investors do strategies securities and investment structures to enhance their portfolios with a focus on the internal revenue code you structures just transactions and utilizes investments that allowed taxpayers to keep more of what they've created and built deferring mitigating end reducing tax liabilities so i think it's perfect that you're title far seven minute interview today is controlling your taxes very very nice am i gonna do that in just seven minutes i we certainly are but i gotta say whenever i'm hosting a continuing education session bring up the idea of tax is i need a locker room just so people say pay attention when we walked in excited not fearful so we'll work on that definitely 'em so we're going to get started in the first question is who's your ideal client yeah it could be very general in braun just to say anyone that has eight near term liquidity event but more in particular kerry it comes down to where anyone that has the tax liability being free needed from that event business owners a real estate investors are the two areas where most of my clients are in when it comes down to this is sonar it's really looking for someone who's maybe selling in the next six months or so in wits eight mid market valuation which happy somewhere between four and nine million dollars is where we can provide the most efficient ceo of the tax code 'em however while where really makes sense could be anyone who has two hundred fifty thousand or more generating a tax liabilities for them on the sale of a massive so you're telling me that they needed state team at least six months before a transaction would occur not necessarily six months i would say 'em we can conduct transactions and much less time i think that provides all parties in a a review enough of they review period we don't really need to be working with anyone no longer than that timeframe they're working with other professionals to build their enterprise a cell number two what problem are you solving these business owners an individual yeah it really it comes down to the taxation upon the sale were helping them retain more of the pre tax dollars that it can be utilized a post sale again i mentioned business owners real estate on it even a worker individuals who were selling collectible the bulls 'em we really work on me as i said earlier the mid market business owner but a lot of those individuals they will also maybe only big issue home or an investment property in we can actually help consolidate those assets on her pre tax basis after the sale to okay well word two and a half minutes in number three water the typical symptoms that you see people are experiencing or they start talking about that made you laugh yeah i think we all know and understand that we have an obligation to pay some taxes but many individuals i speak with kerry bill they hate too much or it's not necessarily their decision as to how much they pay so business owners have been paying taxes payroll taxes property taxes profitability taxes depending on which state they were in an upon exit they don't wanna give up more of that value that they created over the life of that business sometimes upon the sale and be markup could be forty to fifty percent just because the summer having net number were also not able to help them keep more of that roast but maybe even nation take a little less than they would want to market because we're gonna have greater use of that capital so the company becomes more marketable but i also think i just heard you say that they could take a little bit less because they won't be giving away extra to uncle sam correct whether it's uncle sam or their own state taxes they're they're the states as well that they might be subject to so were not avoiding taxes in any way rather structuring when you pay the taxes and how much you got it so onto question number four what do you see the most common mistakes that people are making when they try to solve this on their own yeah it really comes down to they don't know what they don't know not faulting anyone our placing blame here but a lot of the professionals who might be working with less just using the counter example if and accounting practices a hundred and fifty households how many of them in any given year will be going through way liquidity radio event it's agent men in miss number 'em so you might be only client joining through the situation focused on some necessarily accountants focus on will were able to do is make me accounting more bay score cheaper rent for a major rat instead of these score keeper also with business brokers we could make the more honest and the sale because were closer to the true value of what be clients will have after the sale men question number five what is one valuable frame resource that audience numbers cancelled that right now let's start solving the problem well as they continue to work with you as and other great professional national soon visors like doug in jason they have an idea in mind of what their exit will be they should be working with their accounting and financial advisor now to start harvesting the lawsuits from other parts of their portfolio which can be heard forwarded forwarded to offset that game just a little here on capitol markets in the stock let's just say s and p five hundred historically thirty four time in the names and yes and she has been negative each on any given year so you could sell those stocks in period for those losses until the point in time also games that's perfect therefore my next question to you is what is one valuable resource youth and direct people to will further help with that problem where could they gotta get more from yet yes certainly a through our website my d s t plan dot com slash eighty eight a it's posted attached to their in the scriptures friction up this podcast but that's where we begin the conversation a as i mentioned earlier every situation is different and we want to begin having that conversation see if this makes sense for these business or or or real estate investor and we also had that there's no no charger any fee until the transaction actually happens you leading up to it and then my last question is what's the one question i should be asking you would give great dell each why listen it and then tell us the answer to carry this comes up all the time when i'm having conversations where those business or or the real estate investors why haven't i heard this before i can't answer that but i can say that it's been codified in the internal revenue code for over ninety years my colleagues in the partners i work with have been focused on this per quarter century and it's been proven untested by dui arrest thousands of transactions in billions of dollars 'em that world allowing those tatters shoemaking productive use of any pre tax basis that's huge definitely thank you so much i really appreciate your time today it's been a pleasure should have kyle kadish here on the three x value growth podcast paul jerry brown meaningless break you're protesting a thanks for checking out the three x value growth podcast if you like what we're doing here head

37: Running a Sales Process like a Project Manager - Scott Ingram
"You're listening to the daily sales tips podcast. And I'm your host Scott Ingram in episode. Sixty two of the sales success stories podcast. We turned the tables, and I was the interviewee instead of the interviewer one of the things I talked about, but didn't spend much time on was the idea of my essentially being a project manager in the way that I manage my sales cycles really seems to be resonating and a lot of people have reached out about it. So I thought I'd spend a few minutes to talk through it in more detail here. And if you want to jump to that part of my conversation with Jeff Pejic on sales success stories, pull up episodes, sixty two and skip to about the sixty seven minute, Mark. And that's where we start to get into it. So let's talk about this. If you've ever built a close plan around a deal you've seen a bit of what this type of project plan might look like typically in those scenarios your identifying a compelling event or a start date with your client and working backwards to define. In all the steps that are required to get there, and then defining dates and responsibilities throughout the in that document, you'll identify things like legal and contract negotiations, the key meetings and presentations that will need to take place along the way and all of the various stakeholders sign offs, you'll need things like that in my model. I actually take that a couple of steps further part of this is because I work for a professional services firm and this beyond the contract project work is really what I'm selling. But this works just as well in other product or solution sales efforts because it builds trust removes risk and helps your client start to believe that the results are promising are actually going to happen. Here's what I mean. The way I think about sales assigned contract is more of a starting line than it is a finish line. The real finish line is delivering on the results that your client is really signing up for and if you. Can work with them to build a road map with enough details and timelines to help them actually see how they're going to get from here to there you I establish a ton of trust. Because you're demonstrating that you know, what you're doing and you can show them the actual steps to success. It also takes a ton of risk out of their decision. Too often in sales were asking someone to make this giant mental leap from contracting for a solution to end result without providing much clarity around how they're actually going to get there, and I can virtually guarantee that your competitors aren't doing this. Why? Because it's hard it requires a bunch of up front work. But if you do it, you're win rates are going to increase dramatically. Just make sure you do some really solid qualifying on the front end because you don't want to invest this level of effort in a deal. That's not real. Although this also serves as a. Great qualifier in itself, if you lay out this approach with your client, and they're not willing to participate. It's very unlikely that you have a legit deal. So if they do buy in don't think that you have to do all of this yourself. This is what team selling is all about you may need to get allied with your internal services organization or account management or client success teams or collaborate with an outside partner or potentially all of the above depending on the size and complexity of the opportunity. Ideally, you're building the plan with your client. And it needs to include details around who's responsible for what and win. Then you build a cadence of what are essentially project management calls with the core team to hold each other accountable now I just did an interview with someone yesterday. Who said he also does something similar and talked about how it's going to massively improve. Your forecast accuracy. Because if you do it, right? Everyone is agreeing to all of the dates when each piece is going to be complete and that includes your agreement and the and the traditional clothes, that's it in a nutshell. So does this resonate is this something that you do or you could use join the conversation at daily sales dot tips forward slash thirty seven to talk about this relationship between sales process and project management, then come back tomorrow for another great sales tip. I'll talk to you. Then.

A free leadership video series based on Kevin's book, remarkable leadership sign up by going to remarkable podcast dot com forward slash thirteen days and now. Here's your host Kevin Hi. I'm Kevin I can vary, and I'm here to help you. Reach your potential as a leader and a human being welcome to remarkable TV in the remarkable leadership podcast today we're talking about the power of the break. Are you ready? Well, let's get started. Do you remember elementary? School! Do you remember recess, playing tag and swinging on the swing and the monkey bars and it was great right well. Why did we do that well? We did that because the teachers wanted work some energy off of us, and they wanted us to be able to refocus, and they wanted to give us a chance to socialize. Right. Well now as adults. Maybe we don't WANNA play tag or Go for a swing, but the reality is do we need to burn off some energy? Sometimes we need to refocus and is socialization something we need. All of those are true. Maybe the break isn't such a bad idea. Let's talk about some reasons why breaks are so powerful, shall we? The first is that we will be more productive. You will be more productive if you take breaks. If you take a five to seven minute break every sixty to seventy five or maybe ninety minutes, you will get more accomplished per hour now. Productivity isn't just about raw work accomplished. It's about work. Per Unit of time, and you will be more productive per unit of time. If you paradoxically take a break once in a while, you'll be more productive second. You'll have better ideas. Stepping away from the project stepping away from the computer, stepping away from whatever will often allow your brain. Find the new idea. Walk Away with a question in your head and let your brain try to close the loop while you're taking your break. Next breaks can help us have less stress. They just help us. Relax a little bit. which is one of the reasons why when we come back, we can be more productive and breaks also help our physical health. Are Back. They can help our legs. They can help. Our eyes were staring at a screen for a long time. So give ourselves a chance to stretch to move around. I'm not exactly Mr Desk Yoga Man, but you could be, and you certainly can stretch your back and stretch your muscles and get up for a walk, and if you're not walking working remotely, you could even go say hello to someone else or have a quick cup of coffee or a glass of water with someone. But often we are working remote, and especially, perhaps now you're working remotely and so, what about remote goes with this idea of breaks? Well oftentimes when we're working remotely, we need brakes even more. And here's three reasons why I. The work is always there, and it's always staring at us and sometimes in the evening. It's still there I think we'll just get a little bit more done, so we keep working, and maybe we don't take a break. One of the reasons we end up taking breaks in a workplace is someone else will come and say hello. Catch our eye or something else and sometimes that's distraction, but sometimes it gives us a chance for a break. We're working at home. There may not be any of those right another reason you break word home is guilt because the work is always there. We feel like man. I ought to keep added it want make sure I'm getting as much done as they're getting done. And we started comparing ourselves to others, even if we have no clue how much accomplishing and we set a high bar for ourselves, and so guilt can slip in. And third discipline we feel like we need to be more disciplined oftentimes when people go and begin working remotely. They're worried if they will actually accomplish a lot while they will often depending on the kind of work, they can accomplish more, but it's through brute strength. We still need to take breaks. You. Take a break. You catch your breath. We come back fresh and rocket out. Let me close with today's tweet. Taking a break isn't for slackers, your productivity will soar, and your stress will sink. Take a break already I just mentioned the power of the break. When we're working remotely, my team largely works remotely, and we are the only of the remote leadership institute. And Remote Leadership Institute Dot Com where you can find a tremendous amount of resources for remote leaders, remote team members to help them be more successful and productive, and we'll go take a look and I hope we'll be back next week right here. For another episode of the remarkable leadership podcast end remarkable TV will be back. Hope you'll be back to until then be remarkable.
Solitaire and Minecraft, Repeat
"Hi I'm calling your host of the good news podcasts and I'm neil the other host. The good news podcast is your source for good news fun. Stories auditory delight and Sonic. Joy. We're bringing all of this goodness to you from the cards against humanity studios in Chicago. Oh. Okay. So Neil, you are different and a lot of ways. One of the ways that we're different is on hair brown hair you play video games. Okay. Even, in your phone Abner Board. Video as a rule. Well, okay. I'll flip that and say that I. I've seen you shopping for dresses. Almost every almost every single time I've walked up on you when when we're meeting somewhere, you're shopping addresses. It's true. Yeah. That's your video. It is. It's it's the way. I. Like to. Waste my time. Yes, I do play video games I enjoy playing these days. Yeah. You just can't. Let's go I. I have been playing solitaire for hours and hours a day. I. Don't think there's anything wrong with it. But I really enjoy playing solitaire and I play it when I have a baby I have a baby little a little baby and right now he takes naps with one of his parents and they can go to two plus hours the have to hang with him for the NAP. It's I mean it's a whole thing I don't WanNa. Get into it. We're we're we're doing we're doing sleep training. So at night, he's all alone for naps we just want to ensure that he's getting. Some good Z's and please listeners do not e mail me a bad sleep training. I'm not interested in your opinion. Do is going GonNa do parents are gonNA apparent. When I'm sitting silently one handed. In the nursery sitting in the dark in the middle of the day I play. Solitaire. Crazy. Solitaire. 'CAUSE do you remember? Do you remember in windows? The you can play solitaire angrily freecell. There are other solitaire games that I'm just learning about. Now try peaks. What do you mean is it solitaire the name of the game I think. Is the name of a game, but it's also a family of games. So the one you know most classical is solitaire klondike solitaire. You're going. Way. Off Base. Those great. Yeah Song tears that I was playing is a classification of games you play alone. Solitaire. Solitaire Card game, right? Yeah. Fad Solid. So the ones. The ones that I have access to their like five of them and I have expanded my knowledge of solitaire greatly. Back the windows ninety, five, Solitaire Hook you I mean the. Most enjoyment when you complete when you complete a deck, it just felt so Are. You still getting that same I. Know. Exactly the same feeling. When you're done. But honestly, straight up solitaire you you can get through a game of solitaire pretty quick. So freecell I think is considerably harder. Well, try peaks really fun tried triplex. seven-minute dark room with the baby and I anything to do. That's all. Great well, then we're in agreement. Okay. Sorry. So that is the video game I have been spending most time with but it it's probably not the answer you're looking for. Well, no any answer is fine with me I. I am going to talk about a different video game called minecraft. Love minecraft. Okay. Great Blade at Lake One time guess what a study out of Iowa State University has recently released findings that playing minecraft. My actually boost your creativity. And here's the thing I. Really I cannot wait to tell you about how they did this study. It is so funny. It's just like are they scientists aunt? Okay. This is that he did was they compared the effect of playing minecraft with. Instruction to watching TV or playing a race car game those who were given the freedom to play minecraft without instruction were more creative. Were given the freedom to play minecraft without instruction. They just been like you go play. Yeah. Here's how they came to that conclusion. So there were three hundred and fifty two participants they were allowed to play forty minutes of minecraft or they watch TV. The and they were not given any instruction for the minecraft they were just like here go do thing, and then after the forty minutes, they were asked complete several creative tasks. The way that they measured the creative production was they asked each participant to draw creature from a world that was much different than earth. So the more human like the creature that somebody drew the lower scores over. Is the best test of grid heavy. Yes. So if someone does a stick figure with a third arm, they're like zero zero not creative at all the less human like. Creatures that were drawn were scored way higher. That brings me so much joy. It's so funny. I isn't it isn't it an entirely subjective How is that good day to undergraduates in a room? I mean I don't know. Let's get a bunch of kids in here. Many as three, hundred and fifty, two people you'd study. And then they're like Ok guys at the end of this forty minutes I need you to drag creature. And to be clear, it's not from Earth and it's a non firmer. Funny. And Weird I got you gotta either creatures. Yeah. More than anything. I want to see a bunch of Zeros I want to say the least creative creatures and I. Must be the people who just watched TV Western mark. There that's the high. That's hypothesize I think the idea that you can be am I hearing you right that they had increased creativity scores by playing minecraft without instruction. So just being allowed to go. Yeah. Verses someone who's L- with someone standing over the shoulder saying pick up that would build your house or somebody who just watching TV or somebody playing a race card game gotcha. So neat thank you for sharing that with welcome I am going to go minecraft i. wish that I could have given you. I could have asked you to dry creature after one of your Solitaire Games. What came out I mean. I think if I what have, you just drew A. As far yeah like a two of hearts I think solitaire only makes me more analytical way less creative. Oh, it's all. It's all numbers especially try peaks keep talking. I mean, here's the thing with try don't WanNa, get a card flipped over and from three pyramids of cards you can go one card up or one card down from the face up card. It is so addictive it sounds like gambling. A. Clean actually need a couple of. Oh. God. All right. That's good. Thanks for listening. Do you have good news incredible or maybe WanNa tell us a job.

Lies We Believe About God, Part 2
"Word of truth so we can worship God in spirit and truth deepening our knowledge of God thereby enabling us to deepen our love welcome to where we are studying to show ourselves approved rightly they contact at Justin Peters man who is an enemy of the Gospel then this book should put those doubts to rest I gave an introduction yesterday and I told you a little bit about the book and the forward that was written by a man named Doctor Baxter Kruger who unfortunately is a designer of fishing this fines you and yours doing well and I want to thank you for joining me. We are doing a series this week on the newest book number of copies that the shack did is this too will be a massively popular book unfortunately and if there were ever any doubts l. movie entitled the Shack and Last Week Jim Osmond and I did a series of interviews together on the movie the Shack we went to watch it and we black magic marker and so as you might be able to tell not a fan of message and maybe maybe we can do a series on that sometime the ones Eugene Peterson the author of the Bible version known as the message and if you have a copy of the message S. Two whether or not William Paul Young is a false teacher is a heretic if there were ever any doubts that that he was has sold it well in excess well northwards of twenty million copies and has been translated into a number of different Langley Lord and really broke my heart when I saw that I liked to fish but anyway today we are going to get into some of these lies The book is comprised of very own how biblically illiterate so many professing Christians are it's been endorsed by a number of people and probably one of the most notable friends and family members who undoubtedly have been some of whom had been to see this movie it has the shack has been publishing juggernaut it you may use it for welts got a couple of different uses uses you can use it for kindling You could use it for target practice UH knock it out in in a couple of days or so but we are dealing with William Powell Young's newest book lies we believe about God and Oh come by William Paul Young entitled Lies We believe about God William how young is the author of the book the site your gun in your deer rifle Be really good to go out and put that on a post and draw a little circle on it with your tire week on the shack but this if this even if this even sales ten percent are even five percent of the gust a lot of the theological issues with end that movie and I hope that that was helpful for you just kind of equip you in engaging your twenty eight chapters each chapter devoted to one of the supposed- lies that we believe about God and I want to do that tournament for us to hear these lies quote unquote lies and be ready to engage them and if we hear somebody else if you heard the program yesterday doing this series not because I wanted to just beat up on William Paul young or draw out because we did spend yes take a few days to do this we'll wrap it up within a few days I'm confident but I wanna do this because I think it's going to be a good exercise and ages I think I saw somewhere twenty or thirty different languages maybe more than that so it is it is it's truly a publishing juggernaut in his a sad common now the first half of that is of course true God is good the second half I am not good repeat one of these lies will be ready to say oh now wait a minute that's that's not true that's not what the Bible teaches let's talk about it here's more agree GIS lies quote unquote in his book and we'll talk about these and engage them so the first one I want to talk about his out actually the second lie the first young flatly rejects the doctrine that is known as total depravity and it's really a rather unfortunate name total that is also true but William Paul Young says that that's a lie that is ally William Paul there are a lot of a very nice lost people out there and there are some lost people out there that undoubtedly if that is they could be yes there there are nice a lot of Nice people out there there are a lot of very generous people out there total inability we are all of humanity is totally unable to come to God on their own stirs and were all you know mass murderers or child molesters or something like that total the doctrine of total depravity is not that humans are as bad three ten through eleven Romans Chapter Three Ten through eleven the Apostle Paul says there is none righteous no not one depravity because it it has this connotation that Oh whoa if you believe humans are totally depraved you think we're all months here's why it's not so so I think it'd be a good exercise in discernment force all right the the first slide discuss we're not going to talk about all twenty eight lies because it just slide is book is that God does not like you and everything in that little chapter so subjective I mean it's they were to be walking down the sidewalk and find a wallet laying on the sidewalk and pick it up and look inside they say it's full of money undoubtedly there are some lost people not a lot there is none who does good there is no one who seeks after God a no one understands no one does good no one seeks after body as bad as it could be but that everybody is totally depraved in a spiritual sense in that there is nothing good in US that we're dead in trespasses and sends a better way to state the doctrine of total depravity is total inability a strict disciplinarian. I believed I deserved his anger of course because there was nothing good in me I was being rightfully punished either got so Paul is very clear there are none righteous there is none who does good there is no one who seeks after God God must be good I'll be good I'll be good when I have come to understand over the years is that with every scream of I'll be good all we do not seek for God God's sakes for us and seeks us out in the primary passage for that is Romans but there are some who would try to find the rightful owner and give the wallet back to the rightful owner with every penny in there so yeah that's not the point it's not that everybody when that didn't work I resorted to these words which I screamed over and over and over as the waves of his rage approached I was making a declaration to the core of my being that has taken me decades to unravel that declaration was brutally simple lack of a better word kind of a passage here out of his out of his book in this is from Page thirty one page thirty one in lies we believe about God William Paul Young says this he says quote my father was a missionary he was the righteous man who who is never wrong in he was I am not good so William when you read this Book William Paul Young Rarely Appeals to score the draw it out too long and I want to get onto other things but I'm GonNa hit I think what I saw is some of the more important not at one place in the book did I find where he actually engaged the myriads of Bible verses that contradict is to seek after US but William Paul Young would have us believe that this is a lie let me read to you a a out of context in what he does not do all throughout all of these mini lies that we supposedly believe about God here's what he doesn't do and when I didn't have any idea what CNI at committed by omission or commission I did try to defend myself sometimes by lying you want to discuss so chapter two of his book the second line that we supposedly believe about God this God is good I am not pretend like they're not even there he doesn't even try to engage them he doesn't say in other words never nowhere in the book will you find him saying Sir practically without exception when he does quote aversive scripture he does so out of context he takes it oh he uses he resorts to human reasoning human emotion human feelings and he constructs a God after his own image in fact audience look in the mirror that has got to be the worst theology I have ever come across in that is and his emotions he appeals to how he think got ought to be rather than how God has revealed himself to be contrasts passes in sins he doesn't engage any of those things what he does is he appeals to his feelings what he's claiming to be true in other words the verses that would refute him he just does not engage them he just doesn't engage them is like he utter blasphemy yes we are made in the image of God and that does set us apart from ant eaters aardvarks platypuses and dogs ten through eleven he doesn't engage Jeremiah seventeen verse nine which says desperately wicked deceitful above all the anyway I'm just GonNa Kinda breeze past that but let's go to his first really substantial lie in it is Li- number two in his book the first one like in other words for this live that that we are not good he says that that's a lie that we actually argued he doesn't engage Romans three creatures we are rebels we have sinned against a thrice holy God so if you WanNa look in the mirror and see what God is lie at that range so in in we are sinful we are sinful that's the whole crux of the matter here we're fallen sounds like you as a an angry man sounds like he was probably legalistic moralistic Doesn't sound a few I mean if you want to see what God is like don't look in the mirror look to the bimal look to the Bible but he does not do that and it is just a young who apparently had a bad upbringing his father who was a missionary apparently from what we're gathering was not a good missionary that but that means that does not mean that we are just like God that does not mean that we share in what we refer to as incommunicable attributes things who can know it he doesn't engage Jeremiah seventeen verse nine he doesn't engage a fee of Asians chapter to which says we are dead we are not omniscient we are not only present we are not Omni benevolent we're not all rubbing we are not all powerful we are not immutable we don't change working out his issues from childhood that he's never really come to grips with or never been able to to wrap his mind around I wanna learn what God is if you WanNa learn who got his learn about God he says look in the mirror because you're made in the image of God so if you really want to know who in cats and muskrats and Chihuahuas or what you know we're set apart from the animals because animals are not made in the image of God we are been this way and how he could have been subjected to these abuses and still maintain cross was necessary is that there are none who are good we are all sinners were rebels in our sins have earned us the wrath of God that's what it I have heard we empower young sadism video and I have seen this in an interview on online interview that he's done he says if God you cannot have a right understanding of you cannot have a high view of man in vacated view of Man and when you have a when you have an elevated view of man then that necessitates that you have a very low view of attributes and I think we're going to talk about God's attributes soon if if he rightly understood the attributes of God this would not be an issue for him if he rightly understood in how desperately wicked our hearts really are then he could just go to the scriptures and he could understand these things a belief in the god of the Bible now if he rightly understood the god of the Bible this would not be an issue for him if he rightly understood percents ernest the wages of sin is death not just physical death but eternal death spiritual death and our sin that's why Christ shocking said this is this is not just a book with bad theology this is this is a decidedly nod view of God at the same time it's not possible if you have a high view of God then by definition you will have a low view of man like he had the fruits of the spirit so I don't know I'm just all I know about his father is what he tells us but it sounds like with this the show he wouldn't have to rely on human reasoning but see he's he's an idolatry and what I mean by that is he has created a God after his own image Ed the depravity of man the total depravity and total inability of me and if he rightly understood how heinous sin is back and lies we believe about all the stuff that comes from William Paul Young is his way of is like a personal catharsis it's like him and so Jesus was not calling into question his own deity Jesus was not correcting him Jesus was leading him he was saying Christian book this is a this is an UNCHRISTIAN book and it is it truly is shocking difference at that is the whole reason the section I read to you from his book on page thirty one there so much of this book has the flavor of it is it is William Paul so he rejects the doctrine of total depravity rejects total inability he thinks that man is inherently good the difference that's the whole you will understand that man is sinful you'll understand that no man is not good in no William Paul Young you're not good you are not a good man that is Christianity one a one man is not inherently good man is inherently bad in you see he has a very ellen died on the cross to satisfy his wrath but I get ahead of myself because that's another lie that will look at here in a little bit and when you read this book you get the sense just like that Justin Peters is not a good man we are not good in mark chapter ten when Jesus was talking with the rich young ruler and his deity but as humans human beings you and I we are not good there is no one good no one it's like him he it's like he's trying to reason out from his from a human perspective a humanistic standpoint how he could have his father could oh or do you understand I'm good because I am God there is no one good but God and I am good because I am God Jesus was affirming it Paul could not have been more clear in Romans Chapter Three Isaiah could not have been more clear in chapter sixty four when he says our works are filthy rags one thing that pervades is just it permeates every page of the shack every page of this book lies we believe about God in every hi to say that God does not submit so we're GonNa talk some more about these lies Lord Willing in Tomorrow's program thank you very much for joining me do good but God Jesus could not have been more clear in mark chapter ten Jeremiah could not have been more clear in chapter seventeen of the book that bears his name give you an update I have all the artwork done on the new DVD's the jacket cover and and I'm really excited my new D. The rich young ruler said good teacher what must I do to inherit eternal life Jesus looked and said why do you call me good why do you call me good no one is good but God alone so we're very he has a very elevated view of man if you have an elevated view of man you will necessarily have a low view of God and that is is on the series I did on the Jehovah's Witnesses witnessing to the witnesses series on how to hear from God series the interview that I did interviews I did X program we're GONNA talk about to at least two more lies God is in control that's a lie he says that's a lie to say that God is in control and it's also a lot working on getting my new flash drives done with a bunch of the different series that I've done in the past the Cessation Ism vs continuing second of that movie is a very low very low view of God all right your friends we will go more quickly in our next programs a promise goes these will be out and I'm really excited about it because Kosti Han as graciously agreed to has already recorded for me of the Holy Spirit be with you thank you for listening to dedicate we hope that you were encouraged and edified just radio introduction he's got a seven minute testimony is so
Interview with Raoul Davis:The Art of CEO and Executive Branding
"Hello everyone welcome to another edition of the three x value growth podcast my name is kerry solves coming to you as always from new hampshire and i always start with a piece of trivia about and capture today it's the fact that new hampshire's only state that ever played host to a formal conclusion of a foreign war in nineteen o five portsmouth new hampshire was the scene of treaty that ended the russo japanese war trivia for the day so today i am joined by rolled davis of the senate group branding thank you and welcome rebel i am too well again thanks for joining joining us for this episode of the three x value growth podcast the fred people who don't know who you are i want them to know how much you bring to the table i know you're very busy and i'm very fortunate you agreed had this interview so thank you again roles but let let me tell tell them about you roll davis is the ceo of the ascendant group a world leader in ceo branding with offices in delaware egypt lebanon in the netherlands ascendant help ceos retired athletes and executive leaders increase their top line revenue ascendance integrated model includes brand strategy public relations book deals social media and brand design role is considered to be a global expert in ceo and executive executive branding so that's why the title for today's seven minute interview is the art of ceo and executive branding that's really nice and it sits you so perfectly so we're gonna do that in just seven minutes are you ready okay seven minutes starts now role hoosier ideal client are ideal client is ceos and executives ranging from mid sized marcus of the fortune five hundred end for those clients what is the problem you're trying find a self so the key problem is the marketplaces change right business isn't just beat it'd be or bsd anymore is now h h human to human connectivity and many companies are struggling to determine how do i connect will be audience that matters the most in a way that's gonna emotionally connect them and the days are over where you could just on a corporate press release hope it gets tons of coverage will now you it would just be the advertising department whereas as are approach involves a leadership per ceos and executives where you're providing real value the media and on social emperor that reason people connect with more it's a different approach it seems like it's a totally new unique model well see it's de approach judge that is geared for are times right because communication these days were just all overloaded by it so one advertising message after a number one corporate press release after a number just stick out you gotta be saying something that's unique and saying something that's providing value it's about the value you're providing and you're communication it isn't about you hammering a message which is what too many companies try to perfect i third question what a typical symptoms of what you see in companies but they're having this problem well so versus versus orientation around just thinking about how i communicate their message just say everything but i wanna say really you've got to learn to speak human and one of the best ways to speak human is have human communicate right so we we think about advertising is he's banners these messages that were promoting an it's a very expensive wait a brand i mean like an app you're advertising budget can be significant it takes a person's seven times for even connect with them whereas if you think about using a c or and executive ran bill emotionally lincoln that group of person because her story gets immigration that's the message you get a talk about the company anyway provide value to the audience and then when the advertising comes now is they reminder is not a way for you to just push the best initially it's reminder i'm already seeing you that's great i love you know we speak human is so important these days definitely because that's what you see what are some of the common mistakes that people that are listening might be trying to make make when they try to solve this problem on their own well there's a number but i'll just focus on social 'cause it's one of the easiest deal so for instance let's take linked in and then baseball you supposed to very quickly someone lighten aren't you tired of getting the message that says i'm i i have this service i wanna show you this service dear twenty minutes past me nobody hears the second one is you just developed a connection with me and then two days later you wanna already get on the phone with me to sales he better approach is to demonstrate from the beginning at what you want to help them understand what you do broadly in a way that provide style you wait a month right after a month sent some sort of follow up communication where you're able to ask him about them what they care about what's going on in our world and then you could share a little bit and then you could see if you if they got twenty minutes shack that's much more value but on facebook people are in the business too much of just doing curated content and curated content that day is over you need the original content in your social or anyone wanna hear about it just keeps moving faster and faster definitely so were four minutes in question number five what is one valuable free action that audience members could implement to help them start to solve problem okay you're only dan banner so at the top of the a lot of us just leave the blue box there that is just a generic banner i didn't realize this for a long time and i think a lot of people don't realize that you could also customize that banner and put together like a nice message right there or nice visual picture and it will just add some more flavor and personalities yearling then the second thing you could do that chip is have that opening a title linked inhabits say something descriptive that helps people understand what you're doing as opposed to just single words or something that is a force message yeah there's a big difference between putting your title up there which doesn't tell anybody anything in ashley describing what you do or what problem you solve it makes a big difference definitely so then my six question is what's one valuable free resources that you could direct people to they will actually further help them with this kind the problem for anyone who goes to ascending group branding dot com and then hit the contact us button and reaches out to us we have eight tool that will provide them three reasons why you do see when the executive branch the animal quickly go over them number one is to grow the top line revenue up your business number two is to build more portable brands so if you are a ceo and executive in mall having multiple entities you're involved in building a brand can help you market it many of them and makes you look good in the marketplace people like eat lon musk and richard branson i've been masterful at this and then the final one is to build a legacy so normally people do one or three of these reasons in terms of why building a see orders were introduced important well that's cool but you gave us those two trips right here thank you very much so my last question here and we've got just forty five seconds number seven what's the one question i should've asked you that would give great value to listeners and then please shanahan said sure so i i think one of the most important questions is is branding ego or does it provide value emmy answer is that it provides true value per business because all you were trying to do is ceos executives therapy chief storytellers for but this mess and so the best way to get that story out is the way that's going to connect with your audience it isn't to be cold and and disjointed join it is to really connect emotionally and that's what being but she's storyteller business does that's awesome thank you very much role davis of the senate branding thank you very much here time thanks for checking out the three x value
It only takes a minute, girl (and another 6 after that).
"The. Hello and welcome to French trim. I'm Eddie French lucky number seven seven episode seven lucky number seven, the number of of Jack Daniels, and and the magnificence magnificient men that flying machines, but the other ones let samurai. At fifty. You've got yourself a Heinz number the very own how. Exciting. Well, it might be exciting. Episode seven anyway, lovely to have you along as usual. I've had a fun week of escapes dogs flat tires and bouts of disappointing. Weakness how you been? Well, it one dog escaped for bits. And then she came back, then she escaped again and came back. That's. Adorable for those of you who are playing the home game. She is the Brown and black on she escapes. She broke too much to break off leads and run around pop for a good ninety minutes while foul Koran I sat on a log and waited for her to stop paying attention to us. And then I still have and she didn't get up from the sofa full the rest of the day. She was exhausted. I could've used this opportunity to chase after her or. Do more access is. But I didn't because she's not my that now is taking around to her grandmother's. Lady dog, but it's a grandma grandma's. She managed to escape from the garden and Brown around a different bits of rain day for a bit. So that's nice. Pain in the us. Bless her gorgeous little face with the nose on it anyway. And it was only one tyre pop. It wasn't a blowout or anything. So I've been driving around for the past half a week also on a skinny tie up with fifty MP h max painted on the side of it. So. Not just living my best life. I'm living your best life for you. You're welcome. The disappointing. Weakness, however is a bit less jolly and a bit less easily solved. I suppose it should be weakness says, but we'll just talk about one of them. I. For those of you who bets something to do with food again. Of course, it is. The main reason I'm here bloody bastard food as I mentioned in a previous episode. I've been using the my fitness pal app to track my diets, I have it set to about think it's about eighteen hundred calories a day. That is quite low for some of my size. But I figured that. I'd be able to have a little bit of flexibility. But if I've is on track for eighteen hundred calories a day, and that would be a good thing. So the first month or so I was able to stick to it by adding everything to the app and counseling an accurate Recode of all of my Dinh's. But after initial month I started to started to omit some things biscuits. Here's some crisps there. Nothing massive it wasn't you know cake, but I was breaking my number by more than a couple of hundred calories, which left me with sufficient caloric deficit, which is essentially how Whitelaw's works, but miss fall from Dale and a greedy. Like may is always going to slip up on that kind of thing. Sorry about last. Then this last week something happens some swell of hunger more likely gluttony found. Its way into me. And I've been snacking a lot which is a pointless waste of money and also a huge step backwards. As far as I'm concerned as with most things, I can't do anything casualty that's probably about signed. But not had any major problems yet. It's the Disraeli screw me up. So I'm trying to beat myself up too much about it as that kind of mood. Only leads to further my consumption, which is a bit like society yet guys. So. Yeah, take that existing. I mean, my searing insights into the state of the modern world of side. This does post something of a problem for me that I don't think I'd fully realized until recently so extra effort will be needed for me to sold us out more effort than is actually needed to get myself to exercise. So oh, speaking of which is it time for exercise of the week. This week. In addition to the dog walking I was just about an hour a day, I've been using an app an appropriately named app called the seven minute workout. Did you see all the seven stuff at it earlier? Well, not make sense. Now, you thought it was a waste of time before but. No, no, no, no. Seven minute workout up is all in capitals. And so I think thinks it self very important. But it is what it says it is it's a collection of workouts that take seven minutes with pretty nice little animations to show you how to do the exercise. And then at times it for you. The animations are actually very clear that's one of the problems. I had with the yoga thing is that they would sort of get into a position, but it would be a single angle. And so if there was something behind you, you didn't know how you're supposed to position yourself. So I liked this. A like these animators though, very very good. There's the usual thing sits ups press ups in the like the I've seen on television often in a montage. So it gives you seven minutes worth of these day and all the equipment. You need is yourself occasionally a wall or chair, but it still fits very much into the low budget. No budget thing I've got going on. So all of that's really really good. So I opted for the seven day all round option, rather, I think it's thirty day. But I'm doing it for seven just to see how it was. But so did seven of the thirty all round today's rather than focusing on gluts or lots or pucks or fits or bluffs all outta Lloyd's. Or any of the other muscle groups that I've studied in depth overall. It's easy and brief. So that's fine. With me any problem. I have is with press ups, and that problem, I have is the comp do them nothing possess sufficient strength in my arms to lift my foul excess off the floor. I'm also terrified of falling flat. And breaking my nose to the point where I can actually feel a small amounts of pressure in my nose whilst trying to do a press up like a psychosomatic, numbness that acts as an early warning system. But my nose is imminent in real danger. Being smashed into the floor to quote the kinks when he pulls his freely a lawn panties right up. So I mean to quote, the kinks, I'm not the world's most physical guy. But I thought I'd be able to do a few press ups this app asks of me, but apparently not. This is the second weakness. That's I've found out about this week an actual, physical weakness. I'm not sure I've even tried to do a press up up until now, I don't really see the points in them. Now. I know I can't do the mice even less points. Because I'm one of those contrary people who account do that straightaway. So is probably inferior. It's a stupid way to live your life. But I'm still alive and plenty of people who embraced difference and change a debt now. So I think I win. I mean, I suppose I should do them in the spirit of the thing. But very very difficult. I couldn't do it. I'm also skeptical about the sort of press up and ups and stuff like that. Because they're always really connected to the people. Body sculpting and people chasing the perfect body. And I've never really understood the notion of perfect body because I largely thing the idea of perfection is ironically, deeply flawed, and is actually the antecedents of beauty something perfect is very seldom beautiful there. I mean, if it's mathematically perfect, for example, that can be beauty to it. That's something. I mean perfection doesn't exist. And if you strive perfection, you can ignore beautiful things, you can acknowledge great things, you can ignore wonderful magical things because you go isn't perfect. It never will be. So why bother I'll take music as an example as it's an area. I know about rather than health and fitness assign wave is one of the most basic sounds that there is it's a pure notes a consistent precise sound wave. It is what it is. And it is nothing else. It is by old definitions perfect. However, it's boring and all the amazing things in music all the imperfections timing the pitches and all the rest of it striving for perfection as pointless striving for beauty is what it should be at bounce. Of course, there we get caught up in the fact that beauty, of course, exists in the eye of the beholder. So to some perfection might be beauty. But to me perfection is a cold and soulless thing with no appeal or intrigue or indeed end. It will never end because perfection is stupid. It doesn't exist. It's it's a complete wealth gave chase a perfect wild goose chase. Anyway, I think I'll try this one. Again, this seven minutes at I'll try again because I've not been able to give a fair shake house going to have not given us a fast, shake, I've not been able to give a defense shake because there's a big bits of it that I can't do perhaps once there's less of me to push up. I've done some strengthening in my arms or something. I'll give it another go. So. As far as of use. I'd say the is very very good. It doesn't leave you any questions as to what it means. It's very very laid out. Very clearly, but it doesn't it doesn't talk speak down. So it just reminds you because on the same thing where it says, do however many ups on the same page, it's got that little animation. So people who know all about pushups and whatnot. They just they won't even notice, but people who show where to place your hands on show where to you know, these kind of things how down you go at cetera. Very very useful. And I'm sure that seven minutes, you can find seven minutes most of the time. Most of the can find seven minutes, I'm saying this is a childless man can find seven you can find you can find four hours easy. And if you know, the you just a bad parent. That's it. I mean, I should know thing to I've met parents before I have parents, and they're perfectly nice people. So yeah. Bounce the exercise of the week on able to provide any great insights on accounts of my own feebleness. Is it fun yet? Well, the ongoing dog walking is fun fun. I mean, fine February is felt like may so far. So it's been a chore. It's been sunny. It's been pleasant. It's been very little in the way of rain. It's been very nice to walk around park. So walk around lanes near my parents house and take the dogs over get the seven minutes, fitness out, wasn't fun. But it didn't last long enough to become truly dreadful. I'm skeptical only seven minutes a day can make much of a difference. But I know nothing of the science of exercise, and it has millions of downloads and great reviews and seems to be very well received. So. Apparently, I don't think I'm so clever and insightful as to. Found the whole, oh, this is the one minute day workouts? You can't workouts in one minute. He's foiled us not my but. This is the closest I've ever been to working out in the commonly accepted. These days the close up into working out. And I'm not impressed. It does seem to be largely about Vanisi. But that being said I have a pud cast. So who's the vein man now of net? I've I've made lots of claims in this show or ready in its short seven episode life. But not once I claim to not be a hypocrite. To lay. Oy, probably perhaps a bit less. So having dogs is nice, but nice isn't an exercise so of not been cheered up necessarily by the exercise. But by having dogs, especially when adore is on the lead. She is brilliant. However, the MO the modest binging. I've been doing suggests the I'm not. Any better rarely, but these things come and go not hopefully, I'll be better this week. But I'm certainly not in trouble or anything just don't worry about that. That's fine. But I tend to do very low level self-harm, which is mainly just eighteen Fawzi much. It will get me in fifteen years. I've got fifteen years the ten around. So don't worry about me, sadly, ju to outside issues and the things that I've had to do not been able to put together any quotation for this week. Very very sorry about that might put some up on Instagram and stuff throughout the week. Just for. Just a little bonus. So I will be back next week though. And I'll be dropping hints as well. As quotations on social media. You can follow me at French trim podcast on his Graham. The French trim podcast Facebook page, and you can get directly in touch with me through French trim podcast gmaiLcom. Well, I'm Eddie French for. That's my problem. Not yours. Bye. Bye. Bye.

PES 204: Chriss Goody Bag
"Well hello and welcome to the podcast engineering. Show my name. Is chris kern. I produce podcast for companies. And i teach at podcast engineering school. Every week on this show we bring you podcast production techniques on a silver platter. We alternate between interviews with podcast producers and engineers and daily goody episodes like this one where i'm going to talk about actually today nine of the daily goody blog posts that i write every day. So well actually. I don't write them every day anymore. I do. I think three times a week. And you can actually sign up to receive these daily goodies via email. You can receive a daily or a weekly roundup and you can sign up on the website. Podcast engineering school dot com. But today i'm just gonna talk about nine of these daily goodies and a couple other things and every other week interview someone cool so that's always really fun so first of all next semester of podcast engineering school starts on january twelfth. Twenty twenty one. Yes starting to sound futuristic here january. Twelve twenty twenty one so the daily goodies. We're gonna cover. Today are from between august fourteenth and september third of this year. twenty twenty. and let's get in on it. okay so first one is gain staging with plug ins gain staging with plug ins okay so gain staging is a very fundamental concept in audio engineering and it has to do with you. Know the signal flowing between between hardware between software basically the audio signal comes from somewhere and it goes to the next thing in the chain right so if you think about microphone the signal comes out of the microphone and it has to go to the pre. Am i right. And so then you you crank the level up with the preempt and then it flows from the preempt to the wherever it goes next. Maybe it's an issue or maybe it's your audio interface or whatever and so usually going between these different stages you can adjust the gain. And what happens is if you if one of those gain adjustments is really off. Maybe it's cranked up so much that it ends up distorting the audio. That's not good because you can distort the audio in one step and then in the next step you can turn the level down but the distortion is still going to be there because you already distorted it in the previous the previous step basically. So so. that's what gain staging is in general. There's there's more to it but gain staging with plug ins is actually important as well because when you use plug ins e cues and compressors and things like that if you let's say you're using five plug ins well the signal travels through the first plug in first. It leaves the first plug in and goes into the second plug in and the same thing it leaves the second one goes into the third one so if one of your one of those transitions is not correct. Maybe the levels really low are really high. You're going to try to compensate that in the next step and it can cause problems it can cause distortion. It can close noise. Because let's let's say going from step one to step two or in this case from plug in one to plug into. Let's say the level coming out of plugging. one is really really low. So when it gets to plug in number two you have to crank up the level. We'll guess what now you're cranking up. Not only the level but all the noise right that's in the signal so to gain stage things properly. Each step of the signal processing needs to have the right input level set and the right output level set and that way the signal will travel through all the processors and it'll remain at the optimum level all the time at each step so anyway that's really important and it's one thing is if you ever hear if you're ever hearing distortion on your signal you can just go through your signal chain and see maybe on one of the steps you're you're cranking the level so high that it's distorted right then anyway. That's that's one thing you can do for troubleshooting so gain staging and i'm just saying it again and again because every time i say at ralph m rivera has to drink so and by the way please comment on this episode with two words gain staging all right. Let's move onto the next daily. Goody is a six point soundcheck for internet guests. Yeah six point sound checklists for internet guests. So anyone who's recording podcasts. Over the internet should walk their guests through this six point list. And it's a daily good from august seventeenth. You can see it. And by the way. I linked to all the posts in the show notes here. So wherever you're listening you'll see a bunch of links and you can. You can just go to each of these daily goodies. That i'm talking about directly. So what's in the six point checklist. What are the six points number. One is to have a strong reliable internet connection pretty much there but let's not forget sound. Checking a guest is really important for the simple fact that most guests. They don't know anything about audio. They don't know anything about computers. They don't know anything about any of that stuff and we shouldn't expect them to so the podcast host or the engineer needs to make sure that all these guests have a good setup that they have a good sound good internet and make sure everything is in place so that they can record a nice conversation right so number. One is a strong reliable internet connection. Number two is s them to restart their computer. If they haven't done so recently usually that day i ask him. Have you restarted your computer today. And if they say no. My computer's been on for the last seventeen months. I've never restart my computer will. Then i always tell them to start. And then only open the applications that are necessary for recording number three. Be in a quiet room right. Turn off all fans or air conditioners if there's a window there that's open closed the window. Ask the family to be quiet right. If there's family in the house just quickly go. Tell everybody and say look. I'm about to record a podcast. So everyone if you could just keep you know not make any loud noises for the next hour that would great and anyway. That goes a long way number. Four is microphone technique which basically means having their mouth consistently close to the mic. When they're speaking. So i i usually just remind folks just you know. Hey look make sure when you're talking that you're near the mike you stay very close to the mic. And that's if they have a real microphone. A lot of people have earbuds which leads to the next one number five earbuds make sure they're not rubbing or flapping around this is actually one of the most destructive things that a podcast guests can do if they have earbuds and the earbuds or rubbing against their shirt or flapping around or rubbing against their hair sometimes the ladies with the long hair it rubs against the hair and it makes the sound that you cannot remove. It's terrible so make sure someone has earbuds that you teach them how to make sure it doesn't rub or flap around. Number six is sit quietly in one spot. Don't move around. Don't make any sounds like clicking a pen tapping your foot or slapping papers on the desk. You really have to tell people just to calm down. Sit down. Don't move around and don't make a bunch of noise because again people they don't know average people that don't know these things and so anyway. That's a six point sound checklist. Hope that's helpful all right. Let's move onto the next daily goody which is leaning back from the mike when laughing really loudly leaning back from the mike when laughing loudly all right well. This is just part of microphone technique so basically microphone. Technique says stay consistent distance from the mike at all times. Unless and there's two two things here unless number one. If you're gonna say something really soft and quiet then you can actually get closer to the mic like right. Now i'm a little bit closer to the mic. Little bit closer. And i'm an anyway i was talking very intimately right softly. You can if you're going to speak softly. You can get closer to the mic and conversely number two is if you're going to say something loud or laugh really loud move move a little bit away from the mic. So saw so. I laughed but i moved through my head back. So that's that's just mic technique. That's what that's what that is so you. Can you know you can remind guests to do this. You can practice this yourself just for your own better mike technique and the whole the whole reason for good mike. Technique is because you don't want to laugh really loud directly in the mike because that will actually start all the listeners or ken startled the listeners. Right 'cause it'll be loud. If you laugh really loud right into the mic. That's going to be loud and so the listeners. Gonna it's gonna hit them hard and that's that's jolting and that's jarring and that's you don't wanna do that to the listener so now in post production yes you can use compressors and you can do all this stuff but you know. Nothing beats good mike technique. If you have good. Mike technique you will. You can still use compression and it'll even sound way better so you can't rely on compression to fix all these different nuances of mike technique. It just doesn't work. you can help it. You can fix it a little bit but good mike. Technique is is always way better than using a compressor. But of course you should do both have good mike technique and use compression right okay so the next daily goody this video this video i made how to use plug ins to automate and improve your sound quality how to use plug ins to automate and improve your sound quality so again the link to this video will be in the show notes here so How long is it. I don't i forget how long. Oh it's twenty twenty one minute video so i go over a bunch of stuff. It's a pretty cool video actually so anyway. Check that out. The link is in the show notes. Let's move onto the next daily goody which is non destructive audio editing. Okay for me okay. When i first got into digital recording and digital editing and all this stuff this is back in the late ninety s and this was after i had already been you know engineering music in the music business back in the studios i had worked in some big studios and worked on some records right. I got a bunch album credits you all. I've i've told you that many times. So when i got when i got into digital audio editing and stuff like that when it came to multi-track like i always assumed that any editing that i did in the multi-track was going to be non-destructive and what non destructive means is that let's say you have a multi-track session with let's say four. People are on a podcast. So you have four tracks in your multi-track software like whatever. It is adobe audition. Reaper hindenburg logic. Pro whatever your is right. Let's say a four tracks and let's say you clip out like a minute of conversation. Let's say someone someone had to leave for a second and then they came back and so you could. You could delete one minute of conversation and then like if you really wanted to restore that one minute or bring it back. It's still there it so when you remove that one minute you didn't delete it from the source files. You deleted it in your door. Which which is great because then you can do anything. You can mess around. Try this try that do anything you want. And if you screw something up you can always get back to where you were basically right. So that's non destructive editing. And now once i got into podcast production i re i. I heard and i realized that a lot of people are using odd. Acidy and audacity is a destructive editor when you make edits in audacity if you cut out one minute and then you save. That's it. you can't get the one minute back so anyway. You just have to be aware that. And by the way if you are using audacity. What i highly recommend. And you're probably already doing it when you do anything in audacity right first thing you have to do is make sure all the original recorded files. All the original recordings are backed up. And what. I suggest doing is make a copy of those original recordings and bring the copies of the originals into audacity and then go nuts. Do whatever you want and if you screw up you always have wrote the original raw recordings there and by the way this goes further than our well. This is just in general whenever. You're doing anything with audio. When you record original file you should always keep that original file and never never a edited or adjusted or process. It don't do anything. You should always have a backup of all the original files and then make copies of them and then do whatever you want. But you need the original files always at all times and so if you are using audacity which is destructive. Make sure you have. Backups of all the originals. And never touch the originals. Don't even bring the original file into the audio well. I guess if. You're using reaper. Like i do or any any dog. That's non-destructive i do bring in the raw files. Because it's non destructive. Reaper leaves the original files the way they are. And it just makes a copy for reaper and reaper. Does all that in the background right and so do most dawes. Audacity is the only one i know of that is destructive. Alright let's move on and i'm psyched today. I don't know if you know in this episode. I'm actually covering three weeks worth of daily goodies normally. I do two weeks. But then now that now that i went to three daily goodies a week. That was only six daily goodies. I was covering so for a few of these daily good episodes. I'm going to cover three weeks. And so that'll be nine daily goodies. So that's what we're gonna do today. Nine all right next one. Mastering plug ins. I like okay. So i made a post here about the various mastering plug ins that i like and of course the mastering step is like the final step where you had a little more compression. Maybe slight e. q. Very slight eq-. Or i don't even use the q. In my mastering step basically. I just use compression. And i like aqua marine four which is a in dual stage compressor aquamarine four. Sometimes i use ozone nine nine. And sometimes i use the abbey road t g mastering chain and sometimes i will use saturn to from fat filtered. Saturation and now actually. Since i wrote this post. I bought a bunch of new plug ins from plugging alliance and the shadow shadow hills mastering compressor class a which is just an amazing compressor and a few others. Which i'll talk about soon But yeah the mastering plug ins any. These are the mastering plug ins. I like and don't forget. This is huge. Don't forget you can use any plug in in your mastering step. So if you have any queue or compress anything any plug in you own. You can put it on your master bus and use a little more compression or use a little league you or or use a little saturation. So for instance. If you're a podcast or who uses the ship's omni channel in from waves which is a great plugin you can use that ships omni channel on each voice in the episode and in addition you can use the same well. A different instance of the ships channel on your master bus and add a little more saturation. If you want a little more compression just a little anyway the links in the description if you wanna see the post and click through to the plug ins. I just mentioned. Let's move on to the next daily goody which is true peace of mind for the podcast editor producer and engineer. True peace of mind. What what is that. What is true peace of mind for the podcast editor and producer engineer. okay. I'm just going to read this. Because it's it says it nicely. Well i wrote it nicely. I guess the vast majority of podcast episodes once published will be available to the public for many many years in the future therefore when a podcast editor or producer engineer is careful enough and professional professional enough to produce very good sounding audio. He or she can sleep well at knowing that every single listener. Who here's that audio in. The years to come is guaranteed to have an excellent listening experience and be able to enjoy the content without being distracted or annoyed by bad all the audio quality. I mean isn't that great like when you produce good audio it's going to be good forever so someone five years from now who goes back and listens to an episode that you produced. They're going to have a great listening experience. And i don't know for me. That's true peace of mind. That means that. If i do it right it's out in the world it's correct and everyone can enjoy it and that's it. I love that. I don't know i. I don't know why. I love that. But i just do and the last line of my post here is i believe. Audio production is important and influential. Yeah audio production is important and influential. And that's why i cringe every time. I hear anyone who's a so-called podcast expert saying that oh don't worry about the audio quality just start your podcast. Just start your podcast. Your voice needs to be heard. Don't get caught up on the technical stuff. No you need to at least get involved in the technical aspect to make sure you're not recording garbage audio okay. It needs to be good enough. Doesn't have to be the best in the world but it has to be good enough so that means you have to technically produce the audio properly so anyway that's a tangent i've been on a million times right the next daily goody and by the way i have a couple extra things. I'm gonna mention after we get done with the daily goodies as well. So the next one is ground loop hum eliminator so sometimes when you connect various audio equipment like maybe you have an audio interface and you probably have a computer and you might have a channel strip or something or another piece of audio gear like mixer or a road caster pro or something like this whenever you connect various audio equipment together. There's always a chance that there might be a home. That's introduced that that's coming from a ground loop or a ground home or something like that. And there's been various ways you can try to eliminate like that a eliminate things like that in the studios and me personally right now. I i often use a ground. Lift which lifts the ground connection and gets rid of the ham but some people really really think that's bad because oh you know your equipment is supposed to be grounded. Your equipment might it might break. It might malfunction if it's not grounded properly and in all my experience and audio in over thirty years. That's never happened to me. But i guess technically speaking it could happen so anyway what i found because i wanted to recommend something to people who have a ground home and i'm like well if i can't recommend ground lift because if a bunch of people online are going to be whining about it how technically it's not the perfect best way to solve the problem which again they're correct. I'll give him that. But the real world is often different than than some technicalities right. So i went out and found something that apparently everyone says is really good. And it's this edtech Ex ground line voltage filter. Whatever the links in the post you can click through. This is an actual device. That apparently will it. It's sort of like the ground. Lift that i use. But it's it's technically better and it and it reduces the chance of harm to your electric equipment so i would say this is something if if you're producing a bunch of audio and maybe have a bunch of equipment. I would always recommend having something like a ground lift or this this Eliminator that i'm talking about in this post. You should always have something like that handy. Because electricity is weird everything could be working fine for years and then one day you just turn on your computer and turn on all your equipment and there's a home and you're like what where did that. Come from so for troubleshooting purposes. It's good to have things like this handy. So you might wanna just buy one of these or by aground lift or something just to have it handy in case in case you have this weird home and it happens to everyone. Is you know no matter how good of an engineer you are. Electricity is weird man and just problems arise so all right well. That's that post like. I said the link is in the show notes and okay. This is the last daily. We'll know this isn't the last one. Okay the next one. Harsh critique of a particular episode of a famous podcast. Okay so. I wrote this harsh critique of a particular episode of a famous podcast because i listen to this an episode of this famous podcast and there were like i mean well. I wrote eight different points. Here are horrible. This episode was. I mean horrible. I literally i've never heard episode this bad in not only in terms of technical production and the sound but also the hosting and the editing and by the way the person who was the famous podcast. Well he was one voice on the podcast on but in this particular episode they had some other guy who was sort of like the narrator. Something and he was exceptionally horrible. I mean horrible horrible. So i don't know i i don't know if i should okay so let me continue with the background so i heard this horrible episode and i wrote down everything i heard. That was wrong with it because for me it was almost like an exercise right like because i can use information like that for these daily goody posts and you know i'm the guy who has to stay on top of everything and be aware of everything right so i wanted to write down everything that i thought was wrong with this episode and i did and of course it crossed my mind that maybe i can send feedback to the podcast host and tell them like dude. This is absolutely horrendous. But of course. I decided against that because whenever you give any criticism to anybody they don't like it then they'll just they'll kill you basically they'll kill the messenger you i never. I could give so much constructive feedback to so many different people and i never give any feedback to anyone. You know why because i'm the one who's going to be get killed and get cancelled and get cold a whole and all this stuff right when all. I'm trying to be as helpful so i don't know sorry. I'm not saying anything to anybody ever. Nope won't do it. Everyone can learn on their own. They can have a horrible sounding podcasts. For years and years and then one day there might wake up and say wow my my podcast stinks and then then if someone ever approaches me and says hey i think my podcast really stinks and do you could you. Could you help me figure out how to improve it now. That's a completely different situation right. That's the person asking for help. And then i can. Just say sure. I'll help and then i'll tell them what i need to tell them. But just hearing horrible stuff and trying to contact the podcast host and say hey man this is really bad. You should fix it. I never do that ever. And i never will ever and if you disagree with me. That's fine but that's just what i'm doing and that's what i'm gonna do because i'm not getting involved in that argument right. I'm just not so okay. So let me run through some of the things that were wrong with this really famous persons podcast episode first of all the announcer guy member. I said there's announcer guy. His voice was way louder than the actual famous person's voice like way louder like way louder. It was crazy totally had to ride the volume knob. It was way off. It wasn't even close. Okay number two the hosts. Oh the hosts part were recorded in a river be conference room and the audio quality was okay. Slash barely passable. So this is another instance of some famous person who thinks that they can just bring a recorder with them wherever they go and record a bunch of nasty audio and then i'll put that out as a podcast and it's like well. Yeah but it's pretty nasty barely passable and there were lots of loud distracting thuds and table noises. That were horrible. Like horrible Number four some participants in the room. Were asking this person questions. But you couldn't hear the person asking the question you could barely hear them like they were fifty feet away is horrible. So it's like think about listening to an episode where you can even the host voice. Sounds terrible and now someone in the room is asking them a question and you literally can't hear the question so there's like twenty or thirty seconds of silence while this unknown person is asking question terrible. I'm sure people just literally turned off the podcast. What is this garbage. i can't even hear anything. And they literally. They probably just turned it off number five. The announcer guy had already. This was like he to me. He had the lazy millennial he was lazy. Millennial voice and he had the vocal fry to go with it. He had zero energy. It didn't seem like he cared at all. And i don't understand this i mean. Do people really think that. The lazy millennial vocal fry voice is a good voice. Do people think that's a good voice to have because it's horrible. It was a unlistenable and at one point. The announcer guy abruptly broke in while host was speaking and the announcer guy was like he did st- thing but let me tell you. The thing was so much louder than the the famous guys voice that it literally scared me. I'm not kidding. I literally jumped. My body jolted because of this was so loud. It was unbelievable. I was literally angry at this frigging podcast because of just because of that among the other things and then well and then there was some content stuff like there was a time when the announcer guy asked the audience. Like what's your favorite podcasting platform. And what platform are you listening on right now and it just like it. Just it came off as a podcast that is not trying to deliver content but trying to get information from their from their listeners so that they can market to them better like it just lazy it it to me. It implied that you know what we're too lazy to look up the answer to this these questions so we need you to do our work for us like ultimate lazy marketers and i can't stand marketing people in general and our marketing in general people. The people. I like marketing people. I like it's the marketing itself to me that it's horrible because you have to be like a crazy pushy. Selfish person to be good at marketing. Because if you're just a normal person you'll you don't get through to that many people it's these mark it's people who push and shove and annoy everybody and all that's that they're the ones who get through and it's annoying right. It's annoying to everybody. So and over the course of this twenty seven minute episodes and this is the last point by the way over the course of this. Twenty seven minute episode. The announcer guy mentioned three different times. That he's been working with this famous host for five to six years like he just casually mentioned it three different times. It's like dude. Okay we get it like you're trying to. You're trying to make it sound like you're this awesome guy who's been you know being mentored by this famous guy for the last five to six years but okay we get it and no one cares and you still sound like garbage. Your energies garbage. Everything about this show is garbage. Like so what we're all supposed to be in awe that you you've been working with him for five to six years. Wow horrible terrible. And so anyway. With this critique. I don't mean any disrespect i mean i'm obviously getting a little riled up telling you about it because that's just because i'm passionate about it but i'm not out to disrespect anybody or anything That's why i'm not naming who this podcast belongs to so but anyway in a perfect world. I'd love to reach out to these people and help them solve all the problems. But like i said before that never works right well anyway and if you want to click through to that post it's in the show notes. So recently i posted on social media these two different posts that i made. I'd want it to just remind you the top ten audio plug ins for podcasts. Production and this post is obvious. I actually divided the plug ins up into categories. And i picked one plug in for each category so this is actually a helpful post if you wanna look through it the top ten audio plug ins for podcast production and by the way this. I posted that on august twelfth. Since then i started using a few other plug ins which are not on there. But those new plug ins that i started using. They are on this other post which i call the big list. And if you haven't seen the big lists of podcast audio plug ins. This is a cool post and again the link will be in the show notes. I went through all the different aspects of production and listed. I pretty much listed every plug in use or and it might even be every plugging i own. Now i didn't include every plug in i own but at least eighty percent which is a lot so i go through different Cleanup plug ins mixing plug ins equalizers compressors multi band compressors limiters expanders and gates ds. Saturation exciter 's tape emulation. Leveling transient shapers and monitoring and also a section. That has my current personal favorites. And then i through a few other things like reverb multi effects plug ins. It's a huge post. And there's all kinds of plug ins and you can click through links to each and every plug in so it's a pretty cool post just to reference like even just to look through it once and be like okay interesting Because i do have a lot in there so all right. Well i just wanted to mention those to other posts. And so that does it for the daily goodies. But i just want to say a few things number one is that i appreciate you for participating for sending me emails and messages and sending me potential guests so if you know any guests who you want me to interview about their production leno or maybe you. Are you interested in being guest. Let me know. Contact me. And again i would like to thank daniel hager for the new website design on my website. Podcast engineering school dot com. Yeah it's a whole new layout a whole new. Look it looks. It's so much better than the old website. So daniel hager thank you brother. He's the host of. Let's talk retouching. And he's the owner of hager media. And i interviewed him on this show on episode one hundred nine so i'll linked to all that in the show notes and i don't know if you know about our facebook group podcasters lounge but we have a pretty cool group on facebook podcasters lounge and i used to do livestreams on there all the time once a week but i stopped doing that. I might start again. One of the ideas i had for the podcasters lounges to have musical artists. Perform to hang out so all of us podcasters we can hang out together and enjoy some good music so if you know any artists who might wanna perform do a little mini concert on a livestream. Let's do it. Let me know. I put out a new small course about a month and a half ago. Now it's called getting new clients set higher rates. Yes if your podcast editor or producer and you wanna get new clients higher rates. This course is like oh man. It's so focused it. So what was the word. I would say it's mercenary. It's so focused and mercenary that it because we don't i don't i don't believe in all the fluff i believe in what works i believe. In what gets you new clients and by the way the one main thing is Reaching out to lots of people. And letting them know what you do in a nice unobtrusive non-sales e way right. So also i wanted to give you an update on my songwriting. I've been playing my new guitar. I've had it for a few months. Now been playing it right and riffs. And i'm still writing good riffs but actually saw this woman who was teaching songwriting. I watched some her videos. And it's so funny. She actually was talking about how to write songs and she literally just said it starts with the melody and some words like even just a line or two and she was like you know once you have a little melody and a little hook with a melody in some words then you can write the music and i was like okay. I've never written music like that. Well mostly because. I've never really been a song writer and i've never been a singer or melody writer. I've never been any of those things. I've been a drummer. Mostly a drummer. And i play guitar and bass little bit. So my approach to music was always to write the music first and then put the words on top right but the way she was saying it makes a lot of sense and especially with trying to write like a hit song. If you write the the hook melody i with some with some catchy words even if it's like two lines if you write two lines of lyrics with a catchy melody that's it. That's the song in essence. Believe it or not then you can add all the rest you can add music you can add other words and you can then you can worry about writing verse or two right but anyway that approach to songwriting really. I was pretty surprised by that. Honestly i never heard anyone say it like that. So what. I'm gonna be doing now over the next few weeks. I'm going to try it. I'm gonna just just with my voice in with my mind. I'm going to just try to sing a melody with some words and then you know find something that sounds good that i like and be like okay and then use that to start use that as the song and then right the rest it. I don't know. Maybe i'm crazy but anyway if you've written songs or you are writing songs. Let me know your experience with writing songs. I'm very interested and The last little announcement is that. I'm going to be recording a new episode of the mystic show very soon. I've been reading some books and i have a really cool topic that i want to discuss But i have to do some more and make some more notes before. I record the episode. But if you're not subscribe to my mystic show. If you're into spirituality and meditation and really deep stuff and by the way nothing having to do with religion and all that just deep stuff then you might like the mystic show so check that out if you want so anyway. I'm happy to hang out with you. This was fun. I hope you enjoyed it if you have any questions. Obviously comment on the episode. Let me know. I'll be back next week with an awesome guest which actually at the current moment. I don't have anything recorded. But i'm recording tomorrow. I help with an awesome guest that give me a week to produce it and then you guys hear it so all right. We'll thanks everybody. I appreciate you. We'll see you soon bye.
Day 247 (Ezekiel 25-27) - Year 2
"Hey Bible readers I'm barely Kabul and I'm your host for the Bible. Recap. Today, we read prophecies against lots of the enemies of God's people, their pagan nations who like God's people have also been acting wickedly I up in chapter twenty five are the ammonites and God's main beef with them is they're schadenfreude. If you're not familiar with that weird sounding word, it just means they find pleasure in someone else's struggle if you really WanNa, simplify it shot in Florida is the reason we? Laugh at videos of people slipping on ice but for the AMMONITES, it was far more sinister. They loved watching the temple be defiled the land be destroyed and the people of Judah became an exiled. They literally celebrated death and destruction. We know from yesterday that the exiles of Judah weren't allowed to mourn the destruction of Jerusalem since after all they were responsible for it but that's a far cry from celebrating it. God says, he will send people from the East to destroy the AMMONITES and we already know from prior prophecies in chapter, twenty, one that those people from the east are the Babylonians. is where the Babylonians take these second fork in the road after having destroyed Jerusalem I. Next. Step our MOAB and seer. But probably, just Moab there might be a note in your Bible that the word sear doesn't appear in a lot of the ancient texts. So we'll just deal with MOAB here. The. Moa Bites are distant relatives of the Israelites but they're sin that they didn't acknowledge. Israel's unique relationship with y'all way they regarded them as indistinct from the Pagan nations. Then, God moves onto them they acted with vengeance and cruelty toward Judah. So in this particular Oracle God says, he will use Israel to punish Eden. In response Israel will be the tool God uses to demonstrate his wrath and anger. FELICIA had the same sin as Adam but God doesn't specify who their attackers will be just promises that justice will be served. In chapter, Twenty six God brings a harsh word to tyra little refresher on who they are. They're a major shipping port located north of Israel and the main part of the city of Tyre is actually an island they are wealthy, and because of their trade, they have relationships with all the powerful nations of the day and for a long time the kings of Israel had an amicable relationship with the king of Tara. He even supplied the Cedar David Built his palace and for Solomon's build the temple but things went wrong with tyra over the years and when Jerusalem Falls Tara Thinks Judas demise will result in their advancement. They don't care what's been lost. They only care that they will benefit from it. Is. Zeki says God will send a Babylonians to attack tire and destroy it. One of the problems that probably won't be resolved in this seven minute podcast is that things went somewhat differently than Ezekiel prophesied, the Babylonians did lay siege to Tara for thirteen years, but it didn't completely fall until later when it was attacked by the Greeks, there are a handful of ways commentators respond to this some don't address it at all because they think it's a non issue. Some say that Ezekiel was primarily using hyperbolic. And metaphorical language here. So there's a little bit of flexibility on what would shakeout because it isn't intended to be read with such literal detail and that's definitely a possibility and if you wonder what I mean by hyperbolic language, here's an example Ezekiel says, Babylon would build a siege mound against tyra knowing full well, that it's an island, you can't build a siege mound against an island. So this seems to be intentionally puffed up language. Say there was no timeline given on when this prophecy will be fulfilled. So the Greek suffices there are a few other viewpoints and options, but here's why I'm not concerned about reconciling it. Ezekiel all himself acknowledges all this later in Chapter Twenty, nine verse eighteen. So if he's not losing sleep over it, even knowing that false prophets get the death penalty than I'm not either and we already know that prophecies are almost always fulfilled in ways that don't seem initially obvious metaphors and imagery set us up to understand it one way. But then in hindsight we say, Oh, that's what that meant. It's so obvious now. So I trust that God did what he intended from the start even if it doesn't literally happen the way, it's metaphorically written. The final chapter of today's reading is a lament for Tara and it demonstrates at length how wealthy the city is there massively influential on an international scale and that's not always a good thing. Sure. They traded clothes and silver and honey and wheat, but they also traded ivory and human beings, and even this lament records the people of tires as being arrogant. Today amidst all this destruction, my God shot was his protective nature throughout all these prophecies. It's evident that God is against the people who are against God's people even after all Israel has done to betray him and break his heart. He still committed to working justice toward their enemies. God's protective nature and his promise of justice is good news for us because it means, we don't have to take things into our own hands. We can trust him to mete out justice even more precisely than we ever could and in his perfect timing. I can lay down my weapons even if they're just words and I can lay down my bitterness because it says I, don't trust him and I can lay down. My will knowing his is better anyway. He is my defender and he's wear the joy is. We love hearing from you but we also love seeing you all the places you recap. Maybe you recap at your work desk for on your drive to work or maybe you're on vacation and you get to recap in the mountains today no matter where you are or what you're doing a picture posted on social media and tag s we are at the Bible gap. Everywhere. The Bible recap is brought to you by. Discipleship Bible study groups that meet in homes and churches around the world each week.

Atatiana Jefferson, Syria, and Trauma-Informed Workplaces (with Kristin Shrimplin)
"Want to understand the issues shaping the immigration debate. Listen to this week and immigration a podcast by the bipartisan policy center that breaks down the latest on the edify or wherever you get your podcast so the bad news is generally crisis at the border the executive orders an legal battles congressional efforts at reform and much more listening subscribe to this week in immigration on Apple podcast smiles and wallet impacts in happens to every single type of identity it absolutely you know spam Sushil demographic of a life and I'm not an expert on police procedures but I just can't fathom the escalation from the door is open to fire bring up the actions surrounding quon McDonalds murder we we need a different process that that people can feel more confident and and we're police officers to can feel these situations so illustrative breakdown of trust between police and communities and especially in light of the reporting that so many people were involved in cover lots of investigations and heartache and probably protests around the area so keep that community and our thoughts that someone with expertise will be analyzing the circumstances and doing a thorough investigation that is truly fair and just for everybody involved news I'm sure that many of you have been following the news out of Fort Worth Texas where we learned that a Tatyana Jefferson was shot in her home after and on across the United States when an officer involved shooting happens we need a way for that to be independently investigated from the get-go because the neighbor called a non emergency police line saying that he was concerned because her door was opened and from edited body Cam footage that was released hauled after Rudy Giuliani started filling the president's ear with ideas that she was disloyal she was impeding an investigation into the her do you feel like that Beth well I think we're going to have lots of that coming as well so Marie Ivanovich testified if you'll remember I know it's hard to keep everybody you can tell that the police officers were walking around the perimeter of her home saw a figure in a window and very quickly yelled put your hands up we also wanted to do a quick update on the impeachment inquiry we had I mean I feel like blockbuster testimony is an appropriate description outside of politics before we get started we will be in DC this Saturday we can't wait to see many person we have to gets left for our show at the relation like this and the poor neighbor who made this phone call has said that he feels such a sense of responsibility and grief and here's a person who was straight and what's going on here so Marie Ivanovich also known as Masha by the people who love her and there are many was our ambassador in Ukraine who was recalled community police department says that they are sharing this concern they're investigating I think this calls out the the importance of some kind of process that we can depend trying to be a good neighbor and do the right thing to keep his community safer I'm just broken for him yeah for everyone involved in for the community I'm sure there will be and then shot and killed her right there in her house where she apparently had been playing video games with her nephew heartbreaking especially because the presence of a child and the law services breath you're listening to pantsuit politics the home of grace filled political conversations Gordon Freeman had made contributions to representative Pete sessions and then Pete sessions a letter to Mike pompeo suggesting Ivanovich be fired into a home that you haven't even stepped foot into yet it's confusing to me why they even had weapons drawn when call was placed to a nonemergency number in heard like out of nowhere like check not a concern that he gets a check and then all of a sudden number one on his list this is a career State Department officials because we've got a lot of news to cover we're going to share an interview with Kristen Ship Lynn about trauma informed workplaces and as always will in the show with what's on our mind I e club with Susan Page so check those out and there's a link in the show notes and then of course we will be wrapping up our tour in Dallas in November so get your tickets for that as well so just beginning with the days titans in the two thousand sixteen election the gentleman that we talked about last Friday who were arrested for campaign finance violations Lev Parnis and leader in Ukraine over the weekend who said you know she just said America has elections people get elected and we move on and like she wasn't constantly so much expertise in this part of the world very neutral from what everyone has said about her when president trump was elected I heard some sound from a salon Russia Fiona Hill no longer works in this administration and from all reports I read about the preparation for her testimony was dragging the president as has been described by people close to him and so she was recalled from her assignment early she is still a statement department employees Congress sent her a subpoena because the State Department told her not to testify she got her own lawyer and here's my favorite part of this whole thing she walked right in the front door I don't know how to describe it like ready to go ready to say some things to Congress we'll even Gordon Sunlen who is the warranted and she's real concerned and I think her testimony will be corroborated as we are recording right now by Fiona Hill who is a former top aide the national security oh she shared things and from her opening statement which was released you could tell that she believed she was unjustly terminated this came out of the blue for her to she thought it was hello and welcome to a new episode of politics I'm a little bit on the struggle bus today so if I sound funny that's because I'm real sick but I'm here I think people who are very transactional reminded tend not to be folks who are going to be thrown under the bus for someone else they say like I'm just telling you what he told me I'm not telling you that I knew it was true as far as the quid pro quo between the president and the president of Ukraine so interesting all around I know the president pledged to withdraw our troops who are allied with Kurdish forces in northern Syria to allow the way of Turkish forces killing an executing Kurdish soldiers civilians getting caught up in the crossfire just truly you truly horrendous heinous acts and then lay yesterday we hear that the Kurdish forces are now seem to have got caught in between the Kurdish forces and the Turkish forces and there were heinous and horrendous videos I cannot tell you if that's true I can only tell you he told me that I cannot speak to its truthfulness or not which I was kind of shocked that somebody like him would okay moving on to another Jenga Tower I don't think it's still standing I think it's fully collapsed in Syria as most of US already nothing in perjure himself in front of Congress over it so I imagine that his testimony will be very carefully worded and I'm glad that he seems to be willing to testify so we have pushed our allies into the open arms of the Syrian government backed by fully and truthfully as possible and we'll see what happens but it does feel like the Jingu tower is starting to sway for Turkey to come in go after those same Kurdish troops that were allies and create a buffer zone for Syrian Russian leave the area we have ensured that the American troop withdrawal from Syria is as dangerous as possible because the Assad regime sounds like I'm a I'm a skeptic but in this situation it's so abundantly clear to the trump inaugural committee through a variety of LLC's he just doesn't seem to me like a person who's going to be ideologically so committed to Donald Trump that he's gonNA lose every it was a little suspicious even the preparation I was reading about his testimony is that he is prepared to say basically this is what the president told me evolvement across the globe militarily with rose colored glasses quite the opposite I'm very skeptical I have no problem is you know especially as a person that came a political we were keeping a tenuous peace and when we left chaos reigned and continues to me how often we really are holding things together keeping the peace and how often are military Russia and Iran and in so doing created the opportunity for hundreds of former Isis fighters and people sympathetic to isis occupations presence whatever you WANNA call it do great good in the world and they are it's not simple and so Gordon Sunlen who seems to have gotten his position as ambassador to the EU because he owned a bunch of hotel chains and made a million dollar contributions aw reaching an agreement with the Syrian government as backed by Iran and Russia to help them defend themselves against Turkish troops oh Asia during the Iraqi invasion it is not an understatement to say that I don't look at America's in ascertain the you set to testify as well and a big supporter of trump of a contributor to trump the one on the text exchange that was like hey we should take this off line did she not lazy she was like Ha I'm here and I have some things to share with you I loved it I did too and situation evolved because of that the landscapes formed around at people came to rely on us we ask other people to do things to help us thing about and you're right Sarah I feel like our troops are doing something fundamentally different from fighting a war in situations like this still danger Chris still costly still comes at great sacrifice and risk it's difficult in terms of under what authority they do it is it congressional appropriation it does not care about our soldiers at all getting out of his country's safely and it's really just a free for all now you know how this makes me feel veggies in their own country they wasted no time taken us up on that offer immediately sent troops so quickly that some of archer terrible compromises with Moscow and with Assad and we don't WanNa do that but we choose life for our people as opposed to their wholesale genocide seen openly and honestly the the the problems we 'cause the lives that are lost because of our intervention favor of the affordable care act as it was drafting but in the past and it became law and so it tempts now to just shut it down are really reckless because people that and and I think that's a very worthy exercise for Congress to get into so that the American people better understand when something like this happens but it's really pulled out and immediately you see everything that you have been spending time away from your family and putting yourself in danger for erased manipulative and disingenuous to talk about this as ending forever war when that's really not what we were doing the other major story that broke over the weekend to keep our troops as safe as possible and to make those missions as successful as possible I worry not only for the Kurds I can't imagine what that must feel like and I think it's important for us to talk about the phrase forever wars because that's what the president and our Senator Rand Paul have been talked and the New York Times reporting that at a pro-trump conference hosted by American Priority National Doral Miami one of trump's resorts depend on it because a whole landscape has developed around that as the law of the land it's the same thing with our military even where we have necessitated our own presence as we have it is depicted as shooter the heads of members of the congregation have been replaced with like a black lives matter sign in Florida a video was played that was created by a third party American priority said it's investigating how this came to be it was part of like a montage there were always the good guys and that we are always out there in the world on the side of truth and justice the situation is just as complicated as every other one but of in parts of the world there's very valid criticisms of how and went and why we've deployed our troops around the globe but the so I worry not only for them but also for American troops who've been doing this work what kind of meaning does your work have if you are the I think wise decision not to air it themselves I wanted to see how it matched up and I think all of the reporting has accurately summarize of memes apparently and the video is awful it is a spoof from the movie the Kingsman I hated this scene and the you have to denounce this specific video but the refusal to take any responsibility for the you are being slaughtered and are now being forced into a situation they didn't want to be in you know I read where general said this morning we're going to have to make time that we're recording has not yet said on twitter that he finds this to be troubling so I did not see the movie and I will not be watching the video to me any denouncement while he is simultaneously and repeatedly and with heightened emotion you know saying just what is a deeply disturbing video and the White House says that the president had not seen it before that he condemns all violence rain it reminds me of how we've discussed that legislation cannot be an on and off switch you may not like or have been in it's just hard to know what to make of the president's personal reaction to something like this when he's taken to his twitter feed to say so many things but as of the Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi of committed treason saying that re tweeting ministers who say we're approaching civil war you know it's not just that Congress like he was in his rally the other day I really think that a hate America I really think they want to destroy America even describe to you how disturbing this video as I did actually find it and watch it because I wanted to know if the way it was being described in reporting especially from outlets that and I don't know how much more clearly this individual president can declare that that's what he wishes to be and how he is going to conduct his just liberals from Congress in this it's it's media outlets that are I think relatively guest pbs and John McCain a violent visual representation of everything he says every single day on twitter and impress conferences at his rallies it's just manifestation of the ugly violent rhetoric that he uses constantly and if the way that everyone who's not with him is against him it's not virement that creates videos like this that pushes people to make violent hit list of liberal media members and Liberal members of entitled to absolute deference to me is just the entire reason that we tell ourselves we have a country you know now and politico and PBS and all kinds of news outlets and the Church has a sign in front of it that says the Church of fake news. I can't shins I guess is that a process that we're comfortable with I don't know how we sort out all of the different types of missions that we ask our military to engage in CBS me so much about this video which you're right shouldn't be surprising to anyone it's just that we keep inching further and further interest George W Bush discussion many were upset they felt like I was saying that Ellen should should have turned him away those things help me understand where we go from here then where does the distinction fall for you I feel like this is so closely tied to even in the most obvious ways that they understand we still have a constitution and we still have three coequal branches but what oh the I really hated that movie because of this scene but it depicts a very violent graphic shooting in a church and the president away from the notion that it's the job of the press to criticize whomever sits in the Oval Office and hold accountable whomever is in that see that he deems a problem for America that since that the executive of our country everything he said in Minnesota last week at a rally that it's impossible for him to disclaim fully any responsibility here errors and that's why I'm so encouraged by the handful of people within the administration who are complying with Congress's investigation and showing gene and Mitt Romney and James Comey depicted in this video so it's anyone who has ever dared to take issue with this president they are our enemies I mean he uses this language constantly and then what we're all shocked when it bubbles up into our experiences or to discount the hurt and grief that people feel about her sitting with George W Bush also don't mean to centered on the sort of white wealthy experience of the Lgbtq community and so I do not mean in any way to discount exc it is disproportionate grossly disproportionate to women and girls that's not a very accurate portrayal of our founding but the story that we've all grown up with about our founding is we wanted to be free from an oppressive monarch I think he has a deeply problematic legacy I completely understand why some people would say that in even stronger terms and you know count the whole aspect of the Bush legacy that centers on Iraq and the the decision to be there and the way our country conducted itself while we were there critique is with the O- on stumbled into this fancy place I can be powerful people who disagree with me felt like her characterization of what was happening specifically that black and Brown people within that community suffer in ways that white people do not and that much of Ellen's work has been really ellen has done enough because clearly not enough work has been done for the Lgbtq community and I did not mean to imply that the work is done and I understand you are still supportive of the president but who would say I think this kind of video is gross or wrong and I think many of them would say both in people's problem with her sitting laughing with George W Bush was disingenuous Not that I thought she should like you know come in with an anti-war post before we move onto our interview with Kristen ship linen are compliments for the other side we wanted to to give voice to a little bit of feedback we heard from our Ellen Degeneres critique in an issue with her presence in that box that day and people are upset with me as well because that's what conversations like this for saying that I it and Congress to I just don't understand what the end game is here for people who are still really in it with the president that's the question I have for folks just come out and said I was invited to the space and I was polite and I have great issues with many of George W Bush's policies she could have just said that what I might or refused to sit with them or spit on him or whatever like I was not advocating for Ellen to turn her back it'd be rude I was advocating for to be more honest in acknowledging people's a- and refused to engage with him and I'm sorry if I gave the impression that was definitely not what I was saying I think I would have had much less critique of Ellen me this isn't an endorsement of being George W Bush's best friend but it has also to say that I don't think we can influence each other when we just can't shallow as the discussion around it has appeared I just don't want to out of hand decide that the best job for me Beth silvers in looking at this story is to give it act and for Ellen George W Bush I have no idea what their private conversations look like I have no idea whether they're influencing each other positively or whether the whole thing is the show and more voices mean better and more diverse community so subscribe rate in review today brand we drove by an outlet for shoes that I love and this weekend Chad said do we need to stop here and I said you know what no I've kind of I've made me is how much I want to conduct myself the way she did because Mike Pompeo was condescending he was clearly several things on cable news lately and even meet the press I you know I watched Chuck Todd Interview Senator Ron Johnson a couple of weeks ago there was no value in that such admiration and such respect for her character and her values and her ability to bring both sides entire demeanor did not shift throughout the course of being spoken down to in a way that I personally perceived as pretty gendered and also perhaps time whatsoever because Senator Johnson was ridiculous and it made Chuck Todd Mad and it was just two people being mad at each other instead of an actor he just simmering with anger he took personal shots at her for her questions he told her that she had her facts wrong without saying what was wrong with him and he was completely undeterred she did not escalate the way that you see a lot of cable news journalist escalating with their guests right now you know I've watched live next up we are going to be talking about domestic violence

That's also the website voice. I dot careers so look you're a hiring manager right. You have stuff that that's technical term for him or you have stuff you need to get done. And you don't always have enough talent K. I don't like to talk about candidates or people or hey you. It's like these. These people are talented. And you don't really know me well enough yet. Maybe but guys is a generic term male or female doesn't matter these guys are talented. Their artists especially in our area of focus is the voice I community. So if you're hiring manager we WANNA help you get the person you need the wisest important. Why been in and out and all around recruiting hiring staffing workforce procurement for a lot of time. I've got about ten years. Timing great of hired hundreds of people. I've helped companies hire people staff both full time part time ten ninety nine contract. You pretty much name. It been there done that. I've got the t shirts. They've got holes in them right but one of my favorite horror stories. I like to tell is once upon time. I had a job which is rare but I've had him over the years. I've been an entrepreneur since age. Eleven but I had a job in. I had somebody that reported to me in a very technical role and we were trying to recruit for that position but the HR department was trying to broker a deal for somebody else in the company and their spouse would become it person. I was the mis administrator long story short the person they were trying to get four position. A couldn't relocate because his wife who was being considered for my position she had a family. She had young kids. They were going to relocate halfway across the country and guess what her first husband Said No. You're not moving kids. Will this process took over two months and the whole time? I'm pull my hair out because the job is getting done but I was told look. You can't hire anybody because we got somebody for you. We've many of us may not all but many of us have been there were wrestling with the HR department trying to get something done k. If you've heard any of the podcasts so far you heard that I started over with a blank sheet of paper and I have reinvented hiring staffing recruiting process for twenty twenty given the economic state of affairs. We find ourselves in in. What does that mean? I love then diagrams and I share this ven diagram with three circles. You the hiring manager is one the talent but not just any talent. The A player right. The Best of the best is another circle and in my company voice I dot careers is the third in where they overlap. Is the absolute best candidate for you. So what's that mean? And by the way normally my podcasts or three four maybe five minutes but these are a little more in depth so they might go six or seven minutes. But so. What's that mean for the hiring manager. You have needs so we want to connect you with the talent that makes the most sense for what you're trying to accomplish in then we're gonNA give you all the ammunition you need to go to the HR person say look.

Let's get you the ammunition to go to. Hr and say this is a person I need and I need them yesterday. How's that sound? That sound refreshing. I hope so couple things. We don't do in the beginning of this process. We don't rely on the resume. We've got some secret weapons to help. Skip that step together. You're going to be hearing in the days to come about one of our processes we call the seven minute higher. How would you like to have enough confidence trust and a warm fuzzy feeling about the hiring process to be able to look at candidate and make a decision to hire them within seven minutes? I've done it. It is refreshing. It's liberating and it cannot be done if you're GONNA do the march of the resumes right if you're GonNa let hr stick them all in his great big black box known as an ATS. Applicant tracking system is not going to happen. The chances are you getting the right candidate if your HR departments using an ats is zero absolutely zero. Let me repeat that the chances are you getting the right candidate if HR's driving the process through an ATS is zero Nada. Zilch not going to happen. That's one of the things that's different about. Voice I dot careers. I'm personally involved with every transaction at this stage of the game. We're just a startup. Were thirty seven days old so we can do that.

a snail races other things are fast like Xfinity X. by let's say she's excelled at staying true to yourself now before we get to the conversation here's Jonathan Brooke playing one of her latest songs live it's called fire project in Nineteen Ninety-four and although she put out many full length albums over the years for her latest set of song she decided to keep it short and sweet and released an EP I'm champion of Jonathan's music interviewer the pair will delve into her latest release as well as look back at some of what Jonathan learned over her many years in the music business that Mir vegetable dispensable think again I am exquisite I got chicks you good he called impostor Genita- stopped by World Cafe for an interview and performance in front of an audience earlier this year and our own Executive Producer Bruce Warren who's a longtime always been a please it's easy and again uh-huh Zieger Diane long before you got out of school that is not giving Filiasi me with easy the die or an EP the landscape has changed pretty significantly since I started out so I guess you made a decision because you put back to the beginning first of all nine thousand nine hundred eighty nine was the year you and Jennifer Kimball form the story so if you do the fourth a sixteen about three years ago it was called midnight Hallelujah and since then I've seen you a couple of times the last time I saw you you were on the stage you work can you talk a little bit about the story in what that was about and yeah this story was it was mostly due oh but we did tour a fair amount with the band do a smaller tasting menu see what happens maybe fives plenty people consume music more than ever but in very different ways than they used to if you can indulge us a little bit the five new songs yeah I just picked my favorite new songs five favorite my favorite news songs and I figured well let's just and I was like how you doing what are you up to and you you said to me I'm recording but I'm not really sure whether I should put an album out anymore or just do some singles but Jennifer Kimball and I met in college freshman year at Amherst College and we were both auditioning for the acapella group are called Sabrina 's and we were both selected because the one of the new songs on Jonathan Brooks EP called impostor it's called fire your last album came out in two thousand rang and I'm a knockout watch Bremer I'm not giving up till you see me 'cause meanwhile time not shutting up Eh step aside thing golfing and drive I active in the middle of the ocean disappear nobody drink this potion so you don't break you know you started the story and then you had your soul career for some of the listeners who only know you through your soul ah writing songs and making up crazy vocal parts and she was coming in with like hey how about this instrument and this Columbia thing and so we started performing uh-huh Damn Song before I tell you how I feel and then Israel because I'm hot now Hey Montana contrary land was so sublime and we were the Sabrina in the group and then we became fast friends and super buddies and by the time we graduated I had started there's a place head now watching now see your watch me now now point yeah so would you be able to play for US I could yeah we're going to try to pull it off thanks for asking I'm making records on Elektra records so we had one called grace in gravity called the angel in the House and had a little great run of it and then I took off on me harmonies and these weird cluster chords that kind of made you sit up but then we would resolve them and make you feel better and it was just a real thing and so we ended up was just from Fan's perspective from my perspective mostly from your perspective was really the record that really brought you out to a wider audience hold you accountable wouldn't take no for uh-huh neighborhood and it became the thing that we really loved and we had a very special kind of sound I mean we were both really drawn to dissonant I mean it was filled with hits Jonathan weirdest thing it was like the most obtuse songwriting which was awesome about it it was but you know what the heart of all the things you have written as a solo artist or with Jennifer the melodies are there you know yeah one of my favorites and I think a fan favorites was the song at the still along at best aw Bill Bradley Bradley Damn and do so sweet but I'm just very so I want one aw still you're still making great music you know you mention the couple of the items that you that you guys made together nineteen ninety three's angel in the house in your me why not jetton agree I'm extraordinary wise time own and Jennifer took off on her own and I saw her last year though she's doing great it's awesome that's great yeah now now it's thirty years of pass why name by the loves by there and and time again Eh W how I feel this is our field I'm not now no hell finally wise and to me the way and if you read I make you remember the game credible arts city they're so generous they're there's a ton of arts funding so I was able after the first year to get a grant which helped me make imposter you know how I will borrow and steal the seat has been on the same three the misbehave me watch just like you're GonNa like it 'cause I'm terrible the EPA comes out in the wash I will love you ativity I think I have a little more space to spread out I have you know have my own space on the third floor of our house and and Minneapolis is an Louis P there are tons of clubs and and great restaurants and a small theater there helped me produce my mother has four noses my one woman show math eighty nine when we were twelve ninety nine it's thirty years no way it's thirty year congratulations that's thirty to be naked and it was sort of based on the idea of my being cast as the emperor with no clothes and telling the story whatever what I'm holding up now can you describe the album cover I'm naked and what else is going on well I had this great idea Tabei say here's in PNC the Jesus I borrow this massive marching big bass drum from marching band and then I talked to photographer into doing it for no money at all and then we talked her neighbors distance would four made us throng around the down the big apple from New York City to Minneapolis a couple of years ago my husband and I moved to Minneapolis has the change of location affected your your songwriting your it's a fun album cover thank you Jonathan Brooke is our guest today on the World Cafe I'm Bruce Warren I asked you to play the title song to your EP is still going on embracing kind of town that's great yeah really Nice the record covers really interesting can you since we're on the radio and many people can't you know see it on the World Oh be still that I had done off Broadway but I was able to bring it to Minneapolis last year for a month actually Sean was was in that so yeah it's it's been a really performed by your big Band Lori on the background vocals and Sean Driscoll on guitar I understand you made a move to Minneapolis from the B uh I stood there naked with his bass drum covering all my bits and wiggles and had these people staring at me as if I were going to start grieving mood find hindsight at the end of the world the the end been there which I do in the title Song Pasta I sort of tells the story about being a the impostor the you know the person that thinks that everything's going great and their stark raving the country day airside two years in the forest no you've got it going on and I just never do I guess maybe that's a good thing and so anyway that's why I'm the imposter in the song but then I got to do the naked a naked and so I had this idea wouldn't that be super fun to be like that person so I figured how am I going to do this because they only in four hundred dollars so basically Jonathan Brooke performing a song that she recorded when she was in the story back in ninety three called at this point that song still sounds so great and perform performed I'm the and pasta and raiding through the downs in a couple of dudes on the street and then my stepdaughter and then my best friend ban became and they stood on this nondescript street in L. A. Because it was December but it was warmer in l. a. and long ago of loves fine the first songs in Song Club like each of us every two weeks you're supposed to come up with a new song whether it's not and the the idea was to get less precious about yourself auster and I was watching a little video on your website in which you said that you had joined Song Club write songs and this is one of the songs that came out of it thing by and he'd come back again and pretend to deliver packages and the kids started coming over the news is very liberating suit so it was all worth it is certainly do and they're times when I feel like when will this and you know well when will I stop doubting myself when will I ever feel like it says I'm the one stand up against the wall five hundred me remember since Oh don't see everyone z. there eh and just like to put something down stop worrying about it just write a damn song and think later and so we each every two weeks we've come up with a title and my title yeah like really put myself in a whole other someone else's shoes I've been doing that a little bit more lately writing for musical theater but it was really fun to explore a character that deeply actually sean lunatic naked with a bass drum and it was it was it was so like I didn't WANNA put my clothes back on I sort of felt great sort of started doing it then the Fedex guy kept is incredible craft for thirty little over thirty years now so looking back to those early years sort of holding changing technology off to the side Dan you never ever call a loser what would your now wise in self say to your younger self about the business oh wow they may get as de vying for the SPA is I feel the rush of cold Air and it runs in I come from a long truthful I'm going to get a little emotional bruce like song called the angel and the house was very hard to write because it was about my parents divorce and it was a shock to our family in here is through the other imposter because I already had sort of the seeds of the idea so I thought well I'll get a head start and then this is the song that came out of it I don't know if any of you struggle with impostor syndrome it was very hard to to like break that bind of loyalty and yet I'm an artist and this is my story and we're in Denmark last fall and they just thought it was about trump like no well oaten good idea that's didn't okay my brother and I had no we didn't see it coming and for for two years I struggled with the lyric that first line was my mother moved the furniture when she no longer move to the man we I'm GonNa ask you to be a little reflective here for the last question if you need a second or two to think about so you know I referred to the fact that you know you've been and sometimes and it just never we didn't really discuss it and it it was what it was and it was kind of an east coast deep uptight waspy thing waited the things but I would say to you know really write the song you have to write and make records you need to make and keep creative control at all costs long inconsolable went on at the end of the song it's like a seven minute song but it's this Gorgeous Piano Solo that kills me still to this day and I stuck my it is true uses and I'm like but that's what's special about me Jennifer like that's otherwise it's just a song and uh a three dodging reflects song same thing with so much mine they tried to talk me out of that weird dissonant thing so the weird stuff in between the first tuber it's which was something that for better for worse I had written into every record contract I ever made I I made the final decision on like how thought nothing of it at the time and I thought well I love that line it was really good line I thought just as a writer but as a daughter and a sister to my brothers well thank you for continuing to stay focused on on your own on your rights as an artist so you got one good person don't burn any bridges and be kind and write that song

Sticking With What Works E481
"Doc Bodo four eight one on the thirtieth of December twenty nineteen. We're sticking with works works. I'm Bernie go buck. You're sticking with me. Aren't you listening to me on spotify or on the speaker. App We can see some images disagree with this recording re might be reading me on inside dude. I E doesn't matter you probably know full well that I try to experiment with things and when I find things at work I try to stick with them like good resolutions. But this year the approaching your twenty twenty. I'm just going to rewarm some things of worked in twenty eighteen in two thousand nineteen resolutions that attempted to Follow back then and I'm going to go and try to execute that very powerful resolution. I had a few years ago. It means three numbers every day. Numbers that happens to be on many batteries that we have line around in our home automation project. There are the numbers three seven and one thousand like to explain to you. Each of those numbers holds a special meaning. Paul Manny I encourage this concept stick with simple numbers are simple words than reviewing those things like people do on vision boards so when numbers three seven thousand three stands for three separate separate meaningful contacts. Toothy told and I prefer to make or to renew three contacts with my immediate family. I have cousins. In seven different states they extend across a different time zones and every morning. When I do it right I look into the APP contractually paid APP that I use to manage content manage contacts and I try to play this bucket bucket game with contractually the Dave Delaney can find him. Dave Delaney taught me. He recommended that I do the bucket game it if I spent ten minutes with contextual. Every day I get a lot out of the goal trying to reach and and maintain contact with three people. I get a whole lot more out of contractually actually than by swiping through and scrolling through instagram. All Vo so my contacts are also instagram people. That's the three about the seven seven minute daily workout. I I have to do this at involves dilling Dylan Age age. Asking him to hold my legs together while I do sit ups or for him to what is hand under my chest while I do press. UPS OR PUSHUPS says American. Call Call Them. I used to eighty eight setups in two few minutes and forty five push-ups in two minutes. That'd be lovely to get back to that core strength but it's also fun to do them mm-hmm if I did him with Dylan. Yeah you could help me burn off my waist line and I'm hoping to buy some compression socks. Some obnoxious fluorescent listen green ones that could use for running walking versus running later using strata. To keep me honest I all put into the show notes my Strada Athlete number. If you WANNA file me but right now I'm having issues with Straw and my credit card except new or updated credit card. So that's my seven my three about one thousand two thousand words a day because I feel very complete when it can write a thousand words a day. It's very challenging during a normal workday so starting to figure out a way to perhaps get the words in before most people show up at work that may mean showing up to my campus thirty thirty minutes earlier than normal and also can get my thousand words in by using otter dot AI. So I'm saying right now might actually transcribe into one thousand words about that. I had to use a high quality. Microphone do that right now. I'm using zoom h six with the MS H six attachment. We'll see can I transcribe on the back of this actually written. What's it about. Three hundred fifty words over on inside you'd I e and I know no that if I reduce the lectures I give down to fifteen minutes segments. Figure could crank out. Several thousand words simples. Every day I think about fifteen minutes of talking is a thousand words or her could trying to produce three blog posts a run. The length of the blog posts called sticking with what works. I hit my one thousand four target that way but three posts hard to do. So what about you. Do you have any major resolutions. You're making for twenty twenty. What do you think of me trying to simply warm and we commit to a process that may chew results Pictures helped me along the way. There are pictures up on my podcasting album on flicker alley that as a link. In the show notes flicker podcasting my have had since two thousand four. I might actually start making twitter moments for all the audio clips that I share. That might be worthwhile and I think because a couple of hundred people read every gram posts or at least see. Every instagram posts might take what elements of what. I'm doing here. poppet across instagram. You can stream when I'm doing by going to be it. I Y or slash top gold audio. That's on spotify is just ask for top gold audio clips. That's top gold. Go L. D.. Talk off and the pictures with this over it inside. You really not look for the blog. Post sticking with what works. Were download the spreaker radio. APP and follow me there. You can see images for each major elements what I'm talking about. I'm ready to talk to me using the handle top cold on social networks. Thanks you're listening. I'm sticking with what works by for now.
Episode 11: Jessica Mauboy
"The story of Australia's First People's is the oldest continuing human story on it this podcast series presents a collection of this people's voices sharing their experiences achievement cripes and beliefs these of the real stories of Aboriginal and terrestrial Australia. Hi I'm Mary Santa and your listening when you are so busy when you off flying so much and you've kind of you know you've done that Gig that day you then fly to the next destination to do and I I remember very in detail of I remember feeling speak of that list you know I definitely excites me because I feel I still feel a sided I remember feeling around like I was hired and you know my first time gigging around and playing museums another game that spin prepped and ready for you so it would like from sixteen from idle at the age of sixteen to about twenty five because I just felt like it was still felt like a dream it was really surreal to me and and getting that particular gig was was uh-huh and singing to different audiences around here in Sydney was something that it was almost pinch me pinch me moments I am a little we're going to behave today and not show I was thinking in preparing to have a chat with you today about times that we've had walking down to the way we speak and we use that body language so it was I felt at home completely and it was the first time in a while having mood it's something that I really genuinely love and I wake up already thinking and inspired of what I'm going to ride and hearing melodies and Atakli feeling like I need to be studio to record them and it's and I think I've always had that as a little girl so yeah again hearing those list of things I I'm I'm only now I feel like I'm really now being able to acknowledge them and and celebrate them which is so funny in a way but curtain all of the songs album it's crazy to to see that visually you know when you when you having recorded two three records in between not only done you know a few brand new day CEPHAS and had been recorded over the years and I think one of the first times would have been the deadliest yes yes I do remember that was our very first connection well so that's and I think you know we'll identity with shape and form and to the way all Erin me to two doing two doing music and to be writing it and to be performing it and to collaborate music I interview with you and be able to do this and have a yawn and I don't know just the extension of I dunno where we're going to go with this and we're going to take me but is it and and just embrace all of these things that happen so quickly and with so much fun I mean I was just being with family I catered for the whole event I pretty much Set everything up from the in joining it I I I think but not really registering it if that if that see anything absolutely and I think allowing ourselves I don't know what it was going to be I I didn't know what to expect so I ended up celebrating going back up to the north from Darwin to Sydney that I'd felt hyme because it was the lusophone Gig for me it was like I'm away from him yeah for the first time I feel a lot of people felt at that moment and so I I really yeah like I said I really feel like I'm now being able to access and review friends that kept asking you know this is what it's going to feel like this is what it was like for me so it kind of built up this expectation of I saw you obviously knows about Australian idol dot and then you removed and you become this big artist albums down about to come out you know you'll confidence has grown studio record for that it happened so quickly and so fast that was never really in the moment I was never had been given that opportunity to really celebrate absolutely my deeper dream you know performing tomorrow mob performing to my community the ones you know me really well and that I really a of my immediate family and my partner's family and WE I set it up vertically straight towards the about the deadliest and the kind of spice that was created in there and that was such lovely memories that we hold very dear hots and it Spain at such journey for you in San really it just felt great if it really great to turn thirty and having done everything that I dreamt of the possibly want was right in front of me and Sergei checked up but it was such a moment of wow I couldn't ask for anything better the long trestle tables to the what kind of sheets that covered the the tables and there were about twenty starting again something new something fresh and and yeah so we all kind of like in linen and we sat there and it kind of makes you reflect a little bit ten thirty this year fourth of August how are you a hesitant and you're like in an bit of a cliff line that you can sit and watch under the trees there and watch the water either you know go out the teas rolling down and I'm looking at mom of looking at Dad and I I think I think it was mainly a moment of just reflecting in that whole seven-minute moment yet was really overwhelming but I will say felt this kind of rush of exciting Oh you know come back in and that's exactly where the sunsets so the sunsets ride into right into the water and it we had seven minutes and I was with my emily and I did Austin if we could all way why and I don't know if it was like I just felt this purity this kind of sense of I'm making the music that I wanna make and I have been on the six year journey of creating this record which even at at that time I don't know what I'm going to call it so really what was the musical inspiration behind why now why did you feel ready yeah it was about six years ago and the first two years of the and so I'd you know I'd really also had given myself patients as well I had to really grace the soundtrack of the SAPPHIRES and so I've had so many opportunities to really play with my vehicles and my emotions and I meant of well there's so much more to look forward to and they're so much plenty you know there's so much time as well and and I get to do this right here with my family Dan Patty I'd say hang on a minute where it really is happening you I am I right and the funniest thing is that I had so many friends and an extension of the push my push the boundaries of Experimenting with music and want my relationship with music is and you know was and is now sixty s I I'd Kinda spent a bit of pressure pull applied pressure to myself because you know I had done the I recall the second on at the jetty there at Ni- cliff if you know of Darwin This is beautiful kind of shoreline and am as an artist what is my message what am I trying to achieve with this record and what is it going to do how's it going to affect and I'm all about effecting I love being able to make someone feelings and watched them like translate this story into my music and sing the songs back or Rokuro the third record in between you know had the opportunity to record be a part of the soundtrack rainy day soundtrack as well as no no no how the Sun's GonNa be trek listed I didn't even know what the what the what the ad is going to look like and that time really it was it was about picking and choosing to create this record and having that experience of working with so many collaborating with so many flicked that right in this moment it's beautiful thank you for sharing that personal story and it does feel like that you've been making us wait yes that's really and we know it's really in a groove to the songs I love to see that physic- physical emotion wither I'm up performing to thousands crowded thousands or you know Ah you know a group of forty two three people in the room like I for me it always comes down to the purpose what is what is my pip is the song that everybody wants you to ride T- you know it being the perfect song or being at the right season or there was I knew exactly who who needed and it it really hit me when I was sitting at home here in Sydney how how do I wanna move me to then be able to movie and that's what music then became for me in that in that six years I really needed to study watch the sun go down and I just had a bit of a cry actually and I think it was that my and I and I questioned myself I was like is this that being away from home about you know going up in in a small town and having to you know being so hugged in my Sydney House just thinking about asking myself those questions you know like who why you know and that being the kind of core structure of then you know it kind of share a who who was I then to my now in writing these feelings down you know what kind of experiences have I experienced whether it's love whether it's pain kind of the same thing really love Palley kind of situated in the same column happiness what is real happiness ring and kind of exploiting all offers like confetti so really kind of riding those things out during circles and almost kind of myself I really need to reeducate how I work and operate and who what kind of people I want in the room to who don't need yes it was you know what is celebration and what are those things mean to me so it was really kind of planning myself out in detail action times he's so underestimated and the older you get the more you go hang on a minute stuff and where's my moment to take a moment to take a deep breath and I think you know big Beth and I just cried I cried because I was not only thankful for what I what music had given me for those years from sixteen there's no but it ought into imitates life and you probably needed to digest it all and Phil what was the next step and this little pressuring coming out with another album all of those things matter to me and family say those activities are connected with my family and family scribbling on the pages and drawing things kind of like bursted like confetti because all emotion started to fill in all emotions wants INCI really kind of flipped it to I really need to really sit with myself and rediscover who age stagecraft really For so long that I had almost lost touch with what what actually saves me what actually keeps it was calling home was calling on that sounds crazy but I haven't been home for ages I'd been working I'd been flying had been doing you know you know experiencing things for myself and and crofting you know my my vocal ability my performance on state teach myself about patients in that you know it doesn't always work out to be that you write you write a hit song you know the me grounded and it was that I kind of disconnected with family and the things that I really love to do you know that the twenty five but also cried having disconnected disconnected myself from my family so it was kind of so many things that I had to kind of not only consume but then I had to then base it off than what am I needs and what am I by the environment you know with its soap water you know to the sands to the to the water holes to garner butch to hunting to guy fishing my parents were that for me and I wanted to be strong and courageous I wanted to be the greatest fishermen Michelle woman You know I wanted to be you begin to understand you understand yourself a little bit more were where I was a little bit backwards like for me knowing my family story and history about my mother that I found had that I had that I had soaked up that I had have them retail them this story so that I could understand mind better which was so weird because most people would think he'd get all these experiences in those activities kept coming up for me being high what is hiring and that's what I really needed to do was like and who she is a woman how she had to survive at such a young age and you know being married at fifteen and things that I discovered and mirrored hell life into my iron and that's it's kind of like you look up to someone you want to follow in their footsteps allows me to really make them make my choices to do and be the vessel but I need to be to create those goals or visions or better they need to hear it because they see it may feel it but I need to say something and it was truly about me spending that amount of time fulfiled me with such ease and unless lending is do I booked a book of to get high and I went hyme and you know I'd been taken that on board for my whole life and it was just that moment that I had to I had to re engage reconnecting time over over the next two to three years which allowed me to sit with mom and reshape stories and really understand you know and it was that day that one day that I sat with mom and it struck me because I'd been riding my name out you know like away deeper and I think that's what affected me Mason I guess allowed me to do music because I as a young as a young girl I'd watch her and great all the things that they had they had showed and shared with me physically and visually To the wise words and and that affected me over the years I always I would observe I would watch her unit cleaning up or listen to music or dancing around in the kitchen a bit of a tug of war I was at war with myself and it's sad in me and I just remember when I need to express this need to express in my family know this waistline Jessica healed him albarn a voice in that on every you know at school from when I was in high school to you know to signing things now as an adult your mother because I'm one of five girls and out of all the gills at that moment like why why me sued always used to tell us You know so you guys are lucky that you know you have me and you know that I get to teach you things because I never I never had a mother to lean on and what it would be like without my my vow anyone to not have have that I you know having conversations having yawns having Ottis come over and how how they would connect and that it yeah it really struck me but it's it's really struck me now like like I kind of love I'm in love with my name and I'm I'm I'm I'm really mother through the struggle through the pain through and these are things that were going to get me to write my music to be able to sit in the studio and be with my feelings you know she'd always tell us about you know I never had a mother you know I was ten I was ten years old when my mother passed away and she was thirty seven so we were both young aid and creative lamb of such a visual person like well what is my record gonNa look like it's going to have my full name or is it going to have my initials is going to be GMO have their mother and yeah it was just something that I you know I just sat there and I is it just kind of engaged and get choked up put on I asked to that and she she kind of looked to the ground and she looked up and she's like yeah now that I think about it you know when you were born I looked at ye I instantly saw my mother and I guess I just that you lost to when you're really young and this is me talking talk into moment in mom story is embrace the story that had come before me in the story before that in the story before that and and that's that's where it got really I guess really he's you know she was always kind of very classy mom would always used to say that China you know she was a housewife and that was the eight after that that was going to be purely about discovering myself through Nanna through how she always used to tie the two ends out and make it you know a crop like a crop top and with hair and lock to her because I really wanted to know I was fascinated but so emotionally fascinated and yes this woman you had Kurds and wasn't afraid to to embrace that she really embraced herself through these photos and she out of bullying my eyes out because knowing my mother's story about having never had Nanna I could never imagine I I asked her in that in that cup of tea has like why why did she named me off to you know what did you name me Hilda. Why don't you name me off to Kala's began the prices of of creating visually but hadn't had the purpose in the story hit and so is that one day that I met with mom over a cup of tea and the House and and I asked a mom my middle name Hilda be interested to know you you know why oar Hilda 'cause I know I know of Nilo but no so much about her and and I pretty much you know that was a job that was a working job looking after four four three of my mom's sisters and my mother but Tom Nana and and not being nanna being very much a part of me being a part of Nana always kind of you know do these hand movement kind of Kodak Moments in these in these these pitches and and every outfits on she would have these kind of long dresses and she always did this thing with with her blouse with a with it with thinking about the record was thanking now for allowing me to embrace everything that I have to really enjoy the woman she said you know I I looked at you and I I saw my mother's face and that instantly got me I knew that I was going to name whatever I was going to one of the fighters she did that so you kind of sent so felt through this Friday this kind of witty you know our sexy voluptuous ex- I knew exactly how I was GonNa tell the story and who I wanted on the project who I had trust in who I a hand wash their clothes Polish their she's and have them ready on the bid for school the next morning and so she had having it was a red lipstick it was a very kind of old classic gold twisted lipstick sensitivity to behind it because not only did I have my story but the rest of my sister wouldn't district God anything or doubt doubt my my mission with this record it that's what it was about really deep you know every day after that they with mom would go through the photo album and look at manner and they're mice fighters of hair just Stalin out with a she had structure she you know she loved having things in place but she also loved the nightline's you know she as you know it's very much a kind of a cultural process as well yeah did you feel a bit of that in developing absolutely and there was there was also kind of in creating it for the last six years it's really can hear it in your voice that it's obviously very personal at stepping into your power woman she lived quite a short live she was thirty seven when she when she passed so I I can't imagine if she was still alive case and every time Nana would apply this a Hilda would apply this mom knew that Nano is going out and that was her latte me thinking about her and her struggles and her her life and not so long live go and take pitches and things like that that I had I had nine about I was already doing and so it even much deeper uh mom would say that not always made sure that there was food on the table when they got home from school and she would make the gills wash their clothes Mom used to tell me every time she knew that Nana would apply this is a a an Im- a gold embroidered lipstick she's to the real podcast series in this episode I'm very pleased to be chatting with my good friend cookie. LNG Singer Songwriter. The One and only Jessica Malvo Hejaz and and it was it was really about that it was really about taking control having structure planning for myself that I I the woman that I've become and that I am becoming and it just made sense that I would name it often enough I would name it Hilton is my mom my dad and extension of the family and then they've you and they stories that they had thirst hands so I wanted to come from a point of view that I named this afternoon and I tell these stories because she allowed me to go deep with myself brothers and sisters so she had come from a lot of love song lines there and a lot of a lot of stories as so I wanted to Dave what that would look like and what that would feel like and for everyone Nano was Come from her you know we are who we are because of families in its original papal where you know it's who we come from that's who we I yeah working through Trauma Family Casino her and it was things like that that you know really you know like I I do that we might go friends so you know I love to I love to dress up and he also I can say my family in your story in vogue stay the voters and we get busy but and dedication in a way from my point of view of thinking Anna for allowing me to embrace the woman in my power what kind of power do I hold in the Salaam I that that I get to that I get to take on this road and it was that it was it was thinking about it creating something visual and in your mind and then an extension of the story that's how I wrote selfish of what I have my physicality my mind my voice the story and early I can do that and and gets to see and feel and here what she's been able to create and and the future of it is sufficient that's okay I think you know we or should have those moments in life where we we've picked those times to do that the so many songs I mean you know I want to mention a song called Selfish it's a song about being a little selfish in life Ernie I have the power to to hold that and and that's speaking on behalf of everyone we we have the power to pick and choose and I will continue to do that just because that's how I was brought up I was taught to give but I had to learn to also nurture and take care and I think that's what you know creating this song selfish was really about was about acknowledging embracing that you know I can be a little bit you know I I wanted to be just like that and living in today's world the access is just beyond and I think she would you know when I sit and think I think she would feel so proud that she is she's been able although she's not here physically spiritually she gets to live on aunties and uncles who tell me you know what she was about what she would do and how she would go about her day affected me because I'm being selfish about love because I think I know I've experienced how my type of person where I will give everybody everything and not putting myself in her shoes and you know and and a lot of the things that are things that she did you know a relationship that is you can see departing he can see it kind of separating but those two people that in and breaking tradition a little bit and and cultural views she she was horizon vessel and that's what I loved that she carried a lot of the stories that are goals in the family so you can definitely feel that happening at the same time now we've only heard little things so far is beautiful thanks cry probably these it that day but it's beautiful congratulations on the first one so what what else do they ever song tell us a little bit about kind of what we can expect beyond well hey yes it's a very rhythmic base that's so much fun and there's a there's another song called I wish you well wishy wells is pretty much an and that be for your self nourishment so selfish is really kind of a really playful song where you can get into yourself physically and you know there's a rhythm both no it was never gonNA work out but I still have love for you in a way that I still look at you with as you look at you with love basically so it's yeah it's basically don't care remember the last time I saw we're in love a still in love but in a way that they wish each other well you know like I wish you all the best in your life and it just we and on the rest of the journey there's another song I really love I'm going to say a song called jealous and this song as this song is Um but it goes I really want to show love it and you're not here is killing up try succumb to tell me you only will be by and it's almost like you still kind of wanting to tease him and make him jealous or make each other jealous you know vice versa you don't have room for this heard in my heart and imam would make me happy about you know the the first time over after the third day you with this guy and it's it goes both ways you know and I just felt like might and my experience of with my partner I remember I think it was like the fifth date and we ended up going to a club and you know just dancing and I was kind of just like creating these moves that up to dance with you and so that's kind of with the song stems from the cheek to it as the of that tongue in cheek that that that that that that does so it's it's it's a rhythmic base and and it gets your body moving and therefore the extension of then kind of spiciness about someone who just wants to just embrace everything about them they look to you know right down to you know they're they're expressing this little power in that song and I I love how fun and Oh you know who you some much easier just stay in bed to gate off again so my buddy and I looked Iva and he was watching me and I was like Oh wow and but it was this look of fasten fascinated and cheeky it is so I think it's kind of one of my favorite cheeky songs if ever written yeah go jealous yes look out for that one yeah I remember dancing make someone Jelly Jelly recondite shirt and compose it it's you know it does become something to share and I think that just like stories music has that ability this is in the world yeah and I think that's the greatest part about having having fallen in love with music in a way that it's exciting she absolutely proud of you feel her her but you can just feel the power comes through although and you from strong matriarchal line you know come with the experience of sharing that with music for music to then manifest that so yeah it is a fine Oh okay so I wish you were yes it's pretty much wishing you wishing the best for that person and come and dance with me and it was that moment of just like yeah made him a little kind of those jealousies kind of thing because as dancing by myself at one um the wonders of music and how it can really transform your moods and make you feel good and and Tom or the you know the confusion or you know the Anga the the happiness of all of those things really isn't all about me like it is about the experience in the moment but when when you kind of walk away from that experience in you you know you intrigued and and wanting to come over and dance with me and and I just remember I kinda just waved my hand and I said you know come wow I love that you come to life when you're telling these stories and that's really nice to have a one on one constant everyone must admit breaking and it's a fun thing to do and I've never really thought of that being a job I love being in the studio all the time a love being able to talk and express not that to create the heartbeat the kind of tempe the rhythm of the excitement that Adrenalin to the the ease in the car you know helping you to be able to distribute the whole record as a whole from track listing to the visuals you know it's it's like it's there it's like therapy for me as you know what we would call it in English kind of mind world it's physical to possess into hold and to to have for yourself again going back to telling your story I created this record from from me to you flea you to have out into song all the time sometimes it like the afterthought comes in like that so we knowing what do you do that because we want you to do that I feel bad about breaking effect you know when you the physical -ness of buying a CD because we love you love moving with the times and downloading but there's nothing quite like having something I work called blessing actually and there's just things in there that really captured moments for people to like nostalgia like those moments of you were because we could be happy how it was and this man would make me smile in it's been that day will that day it happened on Friday or at that time and you know maybe you were wearing something you know point and then he was just like and then after that I think he said something I thought you'd never ask is getting a bit jealous like you had an osteotomy that's the gift of music that you really get to connect with people and make them feel just as they are not allowed in their experience self encouragement and self believe and be brave and be confident and and know yourself so deeply that it's a K. to fall and get back up again stay with us at this stage it's really kind of go go go because you have such a wonderful team a whole building of a team worked betraying you so you've got a few favorite songs there but they're obviously all snowing loved them and it's so nice to hear that the universal kind of emotion taking control and and know that when I go at the to express it the I knife hand what this record is better than anybody else I guess make it come to life when when you are when you are buying a physical CD and I I'm still that I loved so that you know I can continue to to to talk and to share these stories in detail but yeah pretty much from now on it so it's songs in the studio is to create something visually and that's what I love about you it's not just about the music it's about your like in control of this he's like which is the images that allowed to dri greater to the mold in shape I think that's definitely what I'm currently working adding time for you now it's so lovely to hear about the albumin the process and we're just excited to hear when it comes out which is not too far away on the eighteenth of October Ella a Whitney greatest track and and to read all the people that helped bring the song together whether it's a producer a songwriter a it's really finalizing the details of Kala pellets to the fonts to the grading of the paper I know it's so crazy but those are the things that goes to CD's stores and and I've been up a you know Mariah CD perhaps so you know Britney spears CD I mean that's two different worlds but you know what I mean and and and and and songs that are in there about you know maybe maybe you don't want to pray for that person because they've heard you so much sonic that triggered but creating this record with a whole team has been magical for me a wonderful experience that I've I've been able to really Therapy yeah absolutely entirely relate to that end I will say let them use it kind of takes you to that place in time he was up I was there you know a a sound engineer to you know the people that create the paper or the front cover The you know the the now it it was great struggles to be able to tell my stories and I think that's where I felt really strongly about having the you know I've I've made you know I've had a lot of people try and rush the prices and you know I've I've I've found a voice to say bringing that up because that's always been a major a fight you know even in in in my industry with you know yeah well if you
