From Orthopedic Surgeons to Steel Suppliers: How Facebook Ads Can Scale Any Business with Rachael Doukas

"Rachel say what's up to fire nation and shears the interesting about yourself that most people don't new high fire nation. Thank you so much for having me. John Ya something about me that most people don't know it's I actually wrote and developed for short films with my sister and we recently finished writing our first feature film. That's a family drama and we're planning to shoot that in April twenty twenty one are we talking an upcoming netflix original? Rachel. Maybe we're not are not sure yet it say it's actually a family drama film. It's based off of one of our shorts but cool out we'd. Love to get it on the streaming platform and everything I love actually about Netflix and the other shooting platforms you're experimenting with a ton of different things like it's not just these hour and a half blockbusters anymore there's like one minute video six, minute video shorts all these different themes I mean man to me this is the glory time for both actors, actresses, writers, producers there's just so much opportunity out there super bowl but fire nation as I shared in the introduction when we're talking how facebook ads can specifically scale any business. So first things first Rachel and why don't you just KINDA LEARN How you kind of got into this at all and what do you define as a hard to market business which has been what you've really kind of focused on as your specialty shore. So I got into this I started my business in two thousand, twelve before that I was working for my family business which encumber real estate and I was Yeah I. was doing a lot of the marketing there, and we were using facebook to bring in leads people that were interested in office space and I remember one day. My mom just said, you know, why don't you start your own business and it was something I really wanted to do and then I just got into it and I started getting new clients With different types of people and then really focusing in on these like hard to market businesses and so really what I define as a hard to market business it's it's a business with a product or a service that doesn't provide instinct gratification or it requires some sort of customization to suit the customers needs. So for example, if you wanted to buy like customize deal horse stable to house your five. It's not going to be like as simple as just buying a t shirt online from your favorite store where you can just add it to your card, and then it's at your doorstep There's a lot more that goes into it when you're orders ordering something like this There is customization so you may have to fill out a form on a landing page or website that goes to the company that asks specific questions like what kind of features do you want for your co Horse Sable, what are the dimensions and then after that, you'll probably end up getting a call from them more an email just to clarify things and to make sure that they're on the same page as you and they can accomplish what you're looking for So it's it's not easy as you know, one, two three, you're done You know another quick example is like a nor an orthopedic surgeon is also a hard to market business. You know someone can't just go online and buy new replacement they have to go through a journey they you know they may see an ad for an orthopedic surgeon and again have to fill out a form and provide more information. Let them know what type of insurance they. Have Secede. The surgeon can even help them and again, then they'll have to speak with someone on the phone and and you know again, get more clarity to make sure that the surgeon can actually help them. So there's really like these types of businesses they require a lot of care effort and creativity to get people in

interview with Kate Breakey

"Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. It's a great honor in infect and I went to a legit from now on I went back and watched a whole lot of fees and. What I've seen missing. Thank you. That's very kind of you. Yeah. I very much enjoyed doing it especially when you have a chance with people to talk with people like you. But you're just saying that you raised in Australia and looking at your work. One of the things that I it brings to mind for me as a person who believes sorta appreciate your work is sort of a dearth of relationships that is a city boy have had with with wildlife and nature. Other than cats and dogs, occasional mice, you know. Growing up there really was no relationship with nature at all. I have a little more now because I live near the edge of the Angeles forest. So we get the occasional Bob Cat and bear and you know coyote. But still that connection with wildlife pretty rare and I think that is the case for most Westerners and a lot of your work revolves about their relationship with with animals but I'd love for you to sort of take us back to when you were growing up. In Australia and how that relationship, how that understanding of of of wildlife in relationship to the lives of human beings including us of sort of took shape. I mean I was very lucky. Kid had probably an idyllic childhood because in a a rural country town with. Like NATO Food in scrublands and wilderness, Invest Open spaces and. The Southern Ocean. One big sort of giant playground and there was wild animals, kangaroos everywhere and it was. It was just a lot of allowed animals. Lot of indigenous people obviously living in the towns still have been counted with a match Rura primal idea about the relationships that was just part of the way you incorporated in a way because you knew these people. Trees to climb as said, the Ocean to swim in galloped horses along the beach is kid Babak had like a fabulous life really and again strategies like of untouched food nece and beaches that go on fed miles in is not one single person on the except the odd. Not, to get eaten by shock, which happens routinely. saw. Also, I had parents who were. Interested godless got mystere interested in biology botany end I just grew up sort of fat knowledge is part of my experience of the world and I guess just evolved into love my desire to sort of make images about all of that stuff and so finally enough I've never taken photography 'cause I've never really lived in will victim cities not the kind of cities that kept intense thing going on that becomes. Hugely. Interesting to people who are strafed office. So I've never really taking pictures of people buildings and every now, and then when I get asked to jury show I often get someone else to come and sort of see my selection and I say but you haven't picked one person who. People. including genre he begins it gets a bit by. Anyway. I'm much appreciate I grew up. I went to at school lead freelance all those people who are doing that very conceptual sort of. City staff at copied them. But when it comes right down to what I WANNA do and what I love doing its photographing in the natural world and. Ordering it in this way. So I would say that my childhood absolutely was like the biggest influence in all of that in my life. I love because at the edge of the national forests, we have wildlife particularly the. Coyote packs up. Here. On the social media, I think it's called next door. There are a lot of people who you know who who are probably more city-fied than even I am I know Deauville complain about the coyotes in what they can do about it in my and I think wait a second. Clear in their yard right and it seems like people look at wildlife here as is the the inconvenience even though they live at, you know at the edge of the forest and I think when when I consider your work and your approach to it, you're the dynamic of how people exist with animals is very different from what many of us are used used to and so when you're when you're young you kind of mentioned that you had all that sort of wildlife around you. Talk to me about the relationship might sort of felt like was it like like a we're just we're just temporarily this we're living in their. In their. Not really because you know back then I guess in the sixties, people still went out and show Kangaroos to feed. Wildlife was just part of something that you still kind of used. It wasn't there wasn't a great deal respect for it. You know the Kangaroos are called every year because they basically, there's more kangaroos than they should be. It's like united. So every time there's a drought named died, but people go out and shoot them pharmacy eight them because it was cheap made now they used in. In restaurants because it's considered gourmet neat because it star Lean and good for you. Is All this fusion going on with kangaroo mation. Asian spices in the whole nine yards been to Australia. No not. You know you gotta gotTa sit nate is the best place on earth anyway. And so we had friends who had. Farms or because stations but sheep stations and envy would muster the sheep and then the shears would come in and share them in the be sheepdogs who are just working animals. It wasn't really very romantic. They just happened to be just tons and tons and tons of animals and ahead Ananta Nakal who sort of animal rescuers before it was really official, I would collect up injured bids the anything and bring them in and. Resurrect. Going out to their house, they was just everything was a wombat. There was mad pies. It was Joey kangaroos still a great spirit in Australia because we just had a, you probably know last Christmas we had this dreadful dreadful wildfires where green three billion animals died, and there was a great cold out to people to take animals that were bent to to see if they could be rescued and so sort of regular people do that they go out. In their cars and collect up these things that you know stagnant injured to take them back to the triage animal rescue centers to be either destroyed or treated as I. said that call out to people to to look after them and a surprising amount of people do this because Australia kind of especially, the comic stuff united the the Co Alison the kangaroo is so there is this kindness towards animals and I think because so few people. In this giant continent at so many more. So many wild animals there is a slightly different attitude I. Mean I was GonNa say about city people saying, what are we gonNA do about the coyotes deer eating my vegetable garden you know if you get rid of the coyotes, you'll have more rabbits and end up eating a vegetable garden. You can't control because system you you start ruining at the whole thing goes to hell as we saw Anna, we're getting the pollinate is going the birds in the beast is three billion less birds were in the seventies and they the pollinators and we needed a pollinators. So we actually have trees and on and on and on guys as you know is just becomes this huge horrendous mess. So it's more

Vernon Lockhart: Art On the Loose

"All right. So tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Vernon Lockhart. I am a designer. I call myself a creative therapist. I am a exhibit designer, a brand developer interactive designer. Artist. and. I. Am the executive. Director of a program project called project as Moses out of Chicago. Now. One thing that I've been doing for everyone kind of just the start of these interviews during this pandemic kind of just doing a check in to see how folks are doing. So how are you holding up? You know we're given the space in times we're in we're I'm holding up pretty well I think one of the saving grace for me in a lot of this is. When you grow up on from the lane of saying boo as I grew up in a very rough area in Saint Louis and you know we faced adversity every day so. You know you have the coronavirus in things like that now. But for me growing up, you had to face all kinds of threats, potential adversaries so Well given the circumstances, I I commute back and forth caring for my mother who affectionately call a baby girl just can't for. So that's probably one of the key challenges but as far as. Things go we still have a lot of clients that we work with online and for project ASS? Moses alive things virtually with the students given the circumstances I'm I'm very grateful and feel very blessed to will be functioning at full capacity. What does a regular day look like for you now? So for me, a regular day would be getting up one thing that I don't have to do as much in. Okay. With this is not commuting back and forth so much. But getting up saying my prayers getting some breakfast getting on my laptop, looking at emails checking the circumference of the day clients. Immediate needs doing those usually that takes me up until about mid day I usually try to schedule any meetings I have around thirty two noon referee and then any errands I have to run out of usually do air early evening I'm a southern boy living in a city. CHICAGO. So I still have a yard and in a house and things like that. So you I'm out cutting. And things like that towards the evening. So I would call it a pretty normal southern boy day usually my average day but I'm a businessman at the same time. So you know it's a balance between the two but that's an advocate from. So speaking up about business you have a design firm called art on the loose is that right? That's correct. Tell me about it. When did you first start that? So are Donna loose very interesting. We been in operation. Now for about twenty three years I started in the late nineteen I'd say about ninety six and tonight six roughly. And we I was actually working at northwestern university in their at their center for Public Safety Division and we will working on a lot of. Copro shears and things like that in. So it was kind of mundane just no adventure knitted all in myself in one of. Colleagues that I work with addicts Ner we had conversation as I wonder do more I want to be free. I would have some creative freedom here in we started talking about doing our own design work. And in our conversation start playing with name ideas in that I mentioned you know I wanna be free I want to be loose in a good way right as a heart let's let's and so we kinda because we were both artist and he says so let's just call the artem loose in. That's how the name was born in banding Hannah came from this whole Superhero Ultra N-. Staying that I was called as a key going up still combat to this day and so we use kind of empowering. The word artem lose but also with the whole color Palettes, we used our background is how we grew up to create the the business name and I have to just this quick story about ultraman lousy key kids were were calling me ultra because my it was pointed they call me the football hero Alterman. I was like you know and I came home from school I'm I'm one of ten kids, right so I came home from school that I was upset and I start crying to my mother baby girl and I told her what the key is will call him the main she say at wait a minute isn't all tremendous food bureau SABA come home from school to watch ultraman every. Day, and she said I thought he was a superhero say he is. He says we'll take that negative and make it a positive and so I literally went up to my room and start designing year Alterman on and I, went back to school they pop my collar and was like they were like ultimate success right on alternate and so at three sixty beds. So it started all Japan. And took that negative in Medan deposited but also is one of my personal experiences and Brandy. In power of branding, and so I took that icon and symbol. Even. If you look on our business site, you'll see that iconic symbol for for ultra mass I knew. To this day in and I got my design in artistry from my mother, my mother went to design marks. So that's how artem loose in the name came in existence with the story behind it to

Find Your Power Through Emotional Triggers with Susanne Moore

"In say what's up to fire nation and shears the interesting about yourself that most people don't know John Thank you so much for having me on the show I'm really fired up to be here listened to you for at least four years on the bus this show. So something interesting most people don't know is that I run hundred mile trail races for charity and a few years ago, which is actually when I started listening to your show Iran for a called culture. City and it was a race that the BBC called the world's most dangerous and toughest endurance race is about one hundred and fifty seven mile stage race to the Amazon jungle in Brazil. So as you can imagine, it was miles and miles of training that your podcast got me through man I. Love that I mean, that's exactly why I created twenty six hundred episodes of entrepreneurs on fire. So people like you could be entertained and educated for how was one hundred and fifty. Seven miles exactly. Wow. That is amazing. I hope somebody's running crazy race right now and they're like, yes, me too. That'd be so cool and fire nation we're talking about finding your power through emotional triggers. So let's just start diving right into this ZAN by getting into why emotional triggers are so gosh, darn intense. Yes. So let me start off for a little context by saying my daughter and I just launched an APP called Neuro boot, which helps people build emotional muscle and We did this because what we're finding is so many people really struggle with handling emotional triggers and I mean we all have emotion uncomfortable emotions at times right and most of us really are never taught what to do with those difficult feelings. So as a society, we kind of just run from them right? We either numbered out with some sort of entertainment or we drink we smoke we in my case we work too much some people shop too much or eat too much. But what we found is that many people experiencing emotional triggers actually aware in that moment, what is happening to them? So I like to describe it as a wave that passes over you right. So you know like when you're driving to work and you're already late and you have this big meeting and then someone has a wreck in front of you. Or you get home after really long crazy day and your partner yells at you. Right. So most people instantly get this really intense uncomfortable feeling in their body. And they react to that feeling much more. So than the actual event, it's the feeling that's in their body they react to and more times than not that reaction comes across as negative. Because it's typically fear or anger or anxiety that's directed outward, which feels really natural but it can be really dangerous right because a lot of times what that turns into our harsh words or violence or impulsive decisions that we regret later. and. So we tend to either do that or some people if they're worried about the consequences of expressing their emotions, they just bottle them up. And we've found is that you know bottled up fear often becomes anger and anger turned inward often becomes depression. and. The only reason I know any of this because I'm not a mental health professional I'm an RN, but I've done a lot of things and mental health. Directly is not one of them but. A few years ago my then teenage daughter became really withdrawn and unmotivated, and for a couple of years you know, I was the type A overachiever. So I tried everything under the Sun to fix her from removing privileges to these raw raw speeches too harsh words. And nothing worked we were just often at these impasses. And so I was really frustrated and angry because I interpreted that to mean that she was just being this lazy defiant. and. So one day we had this kind of tough interaction and I just gave in i. i. sat cross-legged across from her and I said I took her hands and I said. I can tell you're in pain. I don't know what it is and I don't know if you're comfortable telling me. But I want you to know that I'm here and I love you and we're GonNa get through this. And it was the first time in probably four years that she just melted and she could see her just soften and she gives me this really big hug and she never said a word. the her eyes were Kinda shining and I knew I thought. Okay. I got through to her and the smell that I just got got to that armor. And I really still just had no idea what I was dealing with or or what was going on and I was raised as someone who was taught to work really hard and ignore emotions and. Be, very STOIC. So a few days later, she came to me with this sheet of paper on a clipboard and she said I know you want to help and maybe this will help you help me. And it was a cheat sheet and it had three columns on it, and the first column showed her behaviors, which were things like laying in bed all day or slamming her bedroom door or refusing to interact with the family. And then the middle column interpreted what that behavior met like. I'm feeling insecure or I'm stressed or I feel worthless

Rocky Road with Science Diction

"Both Fenton's and dryers have pretty straightforward stories for how they invented rocky road in dryers version. It was William Dryer himself who one day in nineteen twenty nine did to make an ice cream with nuts chocolate and marshmallows but at the time, marshmallows did not yet come in small versions that came in cheats. So he took his wife's picking shears and cut the marshmallows into four pieces and then stuffed in the ice cream and Taba rocky road was born dryer says the name was meant to quote give folks something to smile about in the face of the Great Depression. According to Fenton's it was a candy maker on staff who came up with it story goes one day. He was making a candy bar with you guessed it nuts chocolate and marshmallows, and he was like you know what would be a great idea is if I put this candy bar in the ice cream and he did it and it was hit via end, the rest is history for over two years.

But Rocky Road Sounds Fun playful even somehow delicious which it shouldn't it is a road with rocks in it But when it comes to food names, it's not just what the word means. It's how it sounds.

In my little neighbourhood of Brunel Heights Dandruff ski is a linguist. He wrote a book called the language of food.

So I started really from the cracker aside and I thought well, what's the opposite of crackers but that would be ice cream Dan decided to run a little experiment he went online downloaded eighty-one ice cream flavors from brands like Ben and Jerry's haagen-dazs. Then he went to a diet website downloaded six hundred cracker brand names and he noticed a pattern it had to do with the vowels I just counted how many of these ice creams versus crackers which one had more front vowels like e or Which one had more back vowels like you're all and there was a striking difference.

"That durant show that tour across Iowa and Illinois August tenth flattened as much as fourteen million acres of cropland seventy to one hundred plus mile an hour winds blew down trees and power lines more than half a million islands lost power some for more than a week. The word the ratio means straight ahead in. Spanish these massive straight line wind events travel more than two hundred and fifty miles and produce wind gusts over. Seventy five miles an hour. Why is the Upper Midwest climatological hotspot for these massive windstorms that howl for hundreds of Miles Victor Seaney is a professor with Northern Illinois University specializing in severe storms. Hi Victor Welcome to climate cast. Thanks for having me on. Paul what stands out to you about that August tenth Rachel probably the number of wind reports that we had over seventy five miles per hour usually when these jobs occurred you. Can get widespread fifty to sixty mile per hour winds. But as we saw in several cities in Eastern, Iowa in Northern Illinois and even into the Chicago land area, this particular day Joe was producing winds in excess along its path of seventy five miles per hour. Obviously, the wind speed gets higher. So does the damage we all know about Tornado Alley and there's also a higher donate show frequency there but the radio frequency is Also high here in the Upper Midwest and the southern Great Lakes right it is an actually if you had to pick one city on the map that experiences more durations than anywhere else in the United States, it would be sort of Rockford Illinois Northern Illinois here is really ground zero for the shows and it really goes back to the ingredients that you need in order to get these types of long live windstorms we've. Had some historic data shows in the Upper Midwest? The Boundary Waters Blow Down Fourth of July nineteen ninety nine is something people here in Minnesota remember what is it about the summertime atmosphere over the Upper Midwest? That's conducive to durant chose well, for those of us who live up here in the summer we know it's the heat and humidity, and of course, you have heat and humidity present on many days in the summertime. But what really differentiates from a direct show, Dave versus a normal thunderstorm day are these bigger disturbances that moved through the atmosphere and a lot of vertical wind shear strong jetstream overhead that all comes together to create a very favorable atmosphere for these rages. The bulk of evidence seems to suggest that climate change doesn't show strong links to the intensity of d'auray chose why is that? It's not that it doesn't show strong relationships is. That it's sort of unknown in that we have a lot of errors right now with our experiments in the models that we have that can project into the future the potential changes. Our best guess right now is that the amount of days that we're going to have in the future that having this extreme heat and humidity will increase, but it's sort of unclear if that's GONNA translate to more of these types of Drake Joe. Windstorms is there any evidence that Rachel climatology could shift northward as the climate warms there are certainly studies out there that show northward shift in what we call the mid latitude jetstream and these types of phenomenon in theory should shift with that northward shifting jet. Again, these are attribution type of studies that will need to be retested in the future and continue to be tested with new data before I think we can say anything. More robust about what we're going to expect with these types of storms. I don't think there's a rating system for Rachel's how would you rate that one that crossed Iowa into Illinois on August tenth this particular Drake Shift you had to ask me is probably one intend to one in fifteen year event across the Midwest Professor Victor Jen, Seaney with Northern Illinois University. Thanks so much for being on climate cast today. Thanks for having me.

The Energy Connection: Creating The Life & Business You Love with Christy Whitman

"Christie say what's up to fire nation end shears the better about yourself that most people don't know. Well, I have been channel named for twenty years in some kind form or another, and now I am full on channeling the council. So my consciousness goes out there consciousness comes in and they had like a shell of a person and they come in and channel through me. Wow. Well, that is long time was not aware that so. So congratulations and it goes right along with a focus of our chat today, which is all about the energy connection because fire nation, we want you to create the life in the business that you truly love, and I'm a big Fan Christie of step by step plan. So you have this three step process for us to make big life changes break that down for us. Yes. So whenever we are having any type of contrast in. In our lives or we have just some kind of clarity that you knew what I want to build my business to this level. Whatever that next level looks like where I'd WanNa have more business with less time. When have more time money freedom where I want to hire somebody and I. Need to hire that perfect person. I. Always say that if you focus on these three things, it'll get you in alignment to then take action. Action. So the first thing is really get clear on what you want. So the kind of person you want in the business when getting specific like when you say next level, next level could be anything. So getting very specific of what is that client base? What is that new lumber of followers? What is that new income? What is the new percentage of profits, whatever it is for you getting super clear on what are you want? and. Then going even deeper of why do you want that because when you can start thinking about all the reasons that you want what you want a lot of times, it superficial reasons come up. You know because I want to have more freedom or. WanNa, make it easier to pay the bills or because I want to take that vacation or because I wanNA. Make more impact. then. If you really get into it, you'll understand that the reason that we want anything is because we think we're going to feel a certain way. One way have it and most people don't understand is that they think, hey, if I make this accomplishment or a mic more money or if I make more profits, then I'm GonNa feel and when we're looking. This being an order to feel were actually working against energy in vibration and the explain there's a law called the law of sufficiency and abundance, and if you look at it, it's like a spectrum on one end of the poll, you have lack limitation. What's not able suffering drama victim consciousness on the other side of it is abundance, the fulfilment of desire the having of it, and whenever we are going towards whatever it is, we want a lot of times. People think, Hey, I missing this. So I WANNA. Go get that in order to get this and it's working way harder than we need to because if you tap into the energy of the fulfillment of already having. Having it. It's amazing. How doors open things? Perfect. Person Get perfect book. You hear perfect podcast something happens to bring you the exact information next step because you're already in the fulfilment of having. So what do you want? Why do you want it really getting to the real core reason why you want something, which is usually an emotion, a feeling an essence, and then how do I want to feel as the third step and then start to feel it understand that everything is energy. We have access to any vibrational feeling. So joy success, abundance, prosperity, opulence freedom, whatever we want experience, we can ask for it. It will come into our bodies because our bodies are receptive. Every single trillions of the cells that we have in our body have receptor sites in them. So we're either receiving in energy from our outer environment or from what we WANNA bring in. So what do you want? Why do you want it? To feel and then get into the feeling place because now you're in the feeling of I've got it, and now you just have to take the momentum to get

"Jody. What's up to fire nation and Shears at the interesting about yourself that most people don't know well how lo I am so delighted to be here with everyone and thank you for listening. So for the what I don't know I'm going to be. It'll be fun. So here we go. Does anybody have a map anybody? Maybe happen to know how to do this? I don't know if you can tell this is me. Pretending to know so little singing from my favorite Broadway show. Dear Evan. Hansen. Racing Beijing I will tell you this two, thousand, five, hundred, eighty, four episodes in. You're the first person to sing on the show I am just to the moon jody. Two different. So there. Is. Oil Is Enviro. Nation when we're talking about will this corona virus creates a data breach in your company and we've brought Jordan on the Mike. We've talked a lot about in the introduction, what we will be sharing throughout this episode. Bless just diving. There's a lot to get to a lot of really important stuff for you nation. So please take some notes. Notes, what are some clues jody to identify what a phishing email is? Yeah. There's there's a couple and you know just to make sure everyone knows what fishing is fishing and there's all kinds of other fancy words. It's now come to text messaging. It's like visiting and swishing and I don't know put a bunch of letters together and make it s shing. What happens is I'm impersonating it looks like I'm a real email, but in actuality I'm not I'm kind of spoofing another fancy word somebody else and. In the last couple months, it's been up three, hundred, fifty percent. It's a tremendous problem in. It's one of the easiest for a bad actor, a threat actor to try and take advantage of. So one of the very easiest places is to look at the the sender. It might say a name that you're familiar with, but you can look at the actual you are l. of or the email address of the sender in. You can tell like, CDC, Dot Gov Dot Org. There's no dot org at the end of DOT GOV or if it came from Amazon prime, it's not gonNA. Come from Amazon prime at comcast dot net. So you look at that particular one, and if the emails a little sketchy, you're not sure a highly advise you use the reading pain in most email providers to be able to look for some of these clues, some of the other ones. Ones are poor spelling or grammar. Most emails don't just say, dear, customer, they're gonNA say on. Dear, jody, they're going to personalize it. If you got just dear customer, there's probably a phishing email again, the U. R. L. and you can also look in the footer because they might change the logo. They might change the address. It doesn't look like the standard footer that you're used to getting. There might be attachment if you get attachments or links on these things, do not doubt open the email don't click the attachment. Don't click the link. That's how they get all the malware onto your computer, and the other big clue is going to be if there's an urgent need or threat like must act now open right away, call us within an hour something like that. Most. Places that are going to need urgent information are not going to do that. They're going to call you. They're going to other methods or they're going to say log into your account and they wouldn't even provide the appropriate link. They would just say go directly to our website and go do it. So those are going to be some of the really common places to be able to identify a phishing

"Hi, everyone, and welcome to Mentally Yours Metro cody KS mental health podcast I'm that and today. I'm going to be chatting Tamasha rake. She's the sister of shorn rake a black wishes, musician who lived with schizophrenia and died in police custody in two, thousand and eight. We're going to be talking. About how her brother died, and also about the death of George Floyd in America. Every black person I know at the moment is finding themselves. Often willingly, but gaining followers gaining. A lot of them. Sometimes unwanted sometimes wanted messages and the Adamson. Talking about A. Lots of people so. Self flagellating about what can they do about racism of a ship questions coming through same pre spree overwhelming and I don't think I know anyone who hasn't hot influx. Of people not quite on shore of how to talk to us. How can people surfing the cost of their own mental health? The moment, especially backend ethnic minority people I think it is quite tiring. particularly when you'll someone who does this work year round and someone who feels this pressure in this sadness year round to only be August just because. Another person because one death has hit the news in a way. That makes people upset in like. Lots of us are aware of many more happening are aware of this constant proximity of black people to death and. You, know wash. This is all the more jarring tiring because it's being played out on such an international scale. It can sometimes be a bit baffling to me where I'm like Oh why now like. Now you're interested, but will you be interested next month? Will you be so? That's what makes it quite difficult to deal with? Especially because. Well. Sometimes it's. Sometimes it's your actual real friends. Checking on which is nice. But a lot of the time it's people who pausing acquaintances best who seem to just be going through a list of every lesson. They know going. Hey, you a K and and you know responding to that in a way that is. So I kind of taken on this policy right now, where like? I. If I don't respond, kindly responded at all. and Some people. I. Don't know a lot of the time. There's a lot of just trying to get. So points doing the right thing as opposed to an actual desire. To whatever, but then again that might be very cynical is made. Perhaps lots of people are feeling uncomfortable. Being confronted with this. Oh thing for the first time. And don't know what to do, other than to talk to the nearest black person to them, which would have to urge anyone listening? Please not to do. Is I can tell you the like. There was a long period of time Fox. Where I didn't want to talk to any white people about this at all like I took pretty much like almost two weeks very rarely looking at social media, ignoring my phone almost completely. And you know responses to emails became longer new the stocks because it can be very exhausting, so. Comforting the person who's come to you to trying comfy? They don't really have anything to offer me in terms of comfort. They couldn't. I have something to offer them. The. Old I'm fine and. You know you're doing the right thing. It can be very tiring. But then on the other hand might sound like. Something! That is actually really great in this time. You see so many different fundraisers for projects. They have been going on for a really long time and because of this. The current. Attention on black activists, and that work and things and. Public works that makes black life more tolerable and enjoyable. Lots of people are donating campaigns that they wouldn't have so. A perfect example is mine project project Myopia which is a project that's been going for three years now that. is working with different universities to decolonize the curriculum. But. This, so we are we do. We have funding currently. That's going to you know. A few grand left off funding, and that is going to run out, and then we'll have to look for another funding because the funding for this project is conditional on me. Still having PhD funding I'm coming to the end of the end of the funding's coming right. and. We shed across a Michelle. Pay Powell and more donations in this week than we ever have. Like this moment where people are going okay I feel really impotent. Maybe I can do something to contribute to efforts that already exist, which is really useful, because people are out there doing the work like so many friends who run you know different projects like looking for you know trying to improve. Access to theater for. People of Color on access to you know like so fringe of color run by my friend, Jeff's broth and Things like. Tiny compasses black Christmas. Things have been able to Gaza donations. In Pau because of the current attention. And you kind of in this weird position as a black activist where you have to. Solve Square your discomfort with. Because I, wouldn't really you cool it profiting 'cause? We don't profiting off this time it's. Taking in funding to continue the work that we're doing to support, black paper. It feels unseemly in some ways, but at the same time why attention attention spans fickle, so you kind of have to take advantage of that current moment where people do feel. Badly in. To help

"Things. They hadn't read her book. It is a great book up all night. It's a big bestseller and it's always great to ever with Rhonda Shear how you doing mark. Yes see Florida. We're so progressive. Down here are open. It is open. I mean you know. It's it's supposedly carefully open but I have to tell you. All of my friends are hitting the hair salon. I mean what they're doing. It carefully like a hair salon can only have like Like eight people including like hairdresser clients but but people are doing their and my friends are all running out for bowe talks and fillers and and my dentist just called me today. It's time for my teeth cleaning and I need to get back there so I mean I know everybody's like has Matsuda up suited up which is good. I mean but I do think you can only keep people down for so long. So you know our beaches. They did close like Naples. I think it opened. It was like so crowded. They closed back down last week. So they have to do it carefully but It is a nice feeling To be able like I have friends over this past weekend and we have a pool. And how many did you have over? No no just to to friends know that we were very careful. And we're all the same age group and we stayed distance and but we went swimming and they on the push kept our business but he was so nice but to get in the pool. Don't you touch like the ladder to get in or the chairs? You touch something dollars anymore. Have Steph walk down if they were touching the latter which I don't have but If they did touch that I mean again. You're in the water you're in open. Space is supposedly the viral load so supposedly if you're outside it disperses a bit more. Even does the air. So it's like you know unless someone is in your face or your touching something and then you immediately. You know Shove your finger up your nose. I mean I think yeah. We're so careful on getting on my lifestyle. It's a little easier to get Lysol Amazon now than it was a few days ago. Some of the things are changing though or like I was reading about like the fake meat. You know all these I. I can't do them. But you know they have all these impossible meats and things that you know all the fast food places have have taken to as well so they're really revving up. I'm sorry like we. We packed our freezer. I mean you can still get meet here. I don't know how it is. They are but There's so far but some of the things that are changing or kind of Kind of weird we've been we have been binge-watching Shits Creek. Which is hysterical. If you've not seen it you've got to see it with your Gene Levy and Dan Levy his star. It's a great binge-watching for the for the moment but here I okay so van and I are staying safe. Were still you know. I'm skyping into go on home shopping network. I just on like you know ten hours. A twenty four hour period. They're still skyping. They don't have plans to open their open in the studio to a skeleton crew like they have hosted the camera people Very small crew but the guests like myself or the vendors like myself are skyping in and I have to tell you. This is really weird. My numbers are way up beating our numbers then before the pandemic is more people are watching because more people are home. That can't go out. Yeah there's more is on on everything is new is So I started doing my own little. You know my little facebook show on Saturdays which I'm having a blast with like I'm having You know mayors on. I'm having musicians on comics. It's just fun and everybody on television skype from home. All the guests and I noticed most of ninety percent. You got to figure out what angle you want. What do you want in the background? Most people put most people put a bookcase in the back. I guess they think looksmart. I'll have books in the background. What is in your background on Fox? News on my on my Background so I've settled on like this really cool room that I have which is It's just a really cool room with like Murals in the background of a Florida. Which are literally were painted onto the wall? Just so I can set up my because I said at my rack of clothing and samples and I and I and I show my sample but before the first time we skype skype from all over the house from the Pool I not from the pool but from like outside pool in the background I scape from my living room with all this stuff in the back. It was so cool because you need to keep doing that like it makes it so personal that h Santa's going to continue doing this like even open at Christmas. They they're going to do some shows from people's homes because everyone loves it. They love the feeling of being. You know more personal so yeah. I know like I've watched a new shows. They do they sit up with like what is that with with books behind them. I could do that. We have like a pool table room with. I've made my library but I wouldn't give anybody you know. I wouldn't want anybody to think that I actually read that those books I mean. I like really classics. I'm studying for my closet. That would be more fun with all the clothes and shoes in the background. So you know because I do like like to keep it light. So my you'll like this my face time Show on Saturday night at nine. Pm is social distancing our with Rhonda Shear and everyone has to drink. Whatever they're drinking it could be. It could be water coffee whatever but if you're drinking like they usually have a little champagne when I say hair. 'cause everybody's like complaining about their hair long or their route showing. I had my done by the way I had my roots done. I haven't done my nails but all the salons are slowly opening. How do you do get your Nielsen? Because don't they stick those instruments into your skin? And who knows if they're clean or not? You can't get it that way. You can only get it by you know people breathing on you and you can't even get it by food. Look at all. The all of our restaurants are packed. Now when I say packed supposedly their social distancing but you know we have a lot of outdoor restaurants here and then they are actually closing off streets to make more room to sit outside. The restaurants really cool But you know and they have the sixteen or the ten feet space between them. But I have to say that second they have restaurants open. Everyone crowded into them. So you you you go into our downtown area and unless you really look closely and you'll see people with mass outside not everybody's remastered this servers. I believe have to wear masks. I like the mass. I think that it's it's When you're outside. I think it's a at least in public. I just think it's it's it's it's unselfish you know because no one knows what was caring. What but you see. You're totally living in the New York mode like you haven't opened up at all so you well. You got a better governor than we are Randi Year. You are a fashion genius. You run a fashion empire. What is the best way for people to pick the right mask for them? You know what we're we're are I I was doing them on Amazon Dot Com. But we're actually starting to do them. So and Rhonda Shear Dot Com. You can go to us. We've done some really fun ones and you can open it up and put a filter in. You can actually use a paper towel filter long as you can't breathe through it and you know make a any wind you know if you blow on it you don't want the flame to flake are But you know I have been you know Before this I've been going Amazon. I'm not sure if I love the ones that have been getting. But it's the best you can do because you can't get the ninety five so the whole thing is to put some sort of filter in and the best way to do that is again like just you put in literally Paper Towel from from your from your kitchen and Just folded enough time to doesn't You know that you're threat but But you can get. Some fashion wants with me. We're opening another key thing. Consignments store to my husband a little project that we're taking on right now so lots of fun. I'm actually doing. This is weird. I'm doing more right now and I think before the pandemic safely and from home and a lot of things online so about in It's about safe of course watch Rhonda Shear on the home shopping network her facebook and go to Rhonda Shear Dot Com. Just give people though appear because we're going to be let out of house arrest and a couple of weeks or a week or two advice. Rest the restaurants. I wear the masks I know into. I mean my my first cousin is here. We speak like every every ten minutes. She's You know very very fearful of know. Math like that really freaks. Because you are a denser population we can spread out more year like we were spread out my backyard by many many feet. You know with my two friends over but I do think masks are very very important. That's my feeling I think it's just a it's just it's proper and it's unselfish and we should do that. 'cause we don't know at this point in time if I had some Heidari how do you say Roxie Corcoran in a minute because my doctor from La Dr Daniel Wallison number one lupus doctor in he literally wrote the book on Lupus was on Fox instead? It's so safe. And it's could could be a great prophylactic so I know I'm not making medical claims. Obviously but I'm just saying that every doctor doctor said but So trump though I mean everybody's so like just because he said it I mean come on. It'd be horrible not to take a drug that could help but yes like you said not in the late stages early early on prophylactically. He should have been the beginning. Said I don't want anybody taking Hydroxy Clark win that way the media would be ordering every doctor and it's cheap. The other stuff is not but anyway.

And it was all recorded onto tape before you know, before ended up you know in in protocols. Sure. So it's got a it's got a it's got a real sound to it.

I think it's groovy. Thank you. Thanks. I'm kind of partial to it myself. I am I've got to say though, now, I'm with all the limitations. I kind of put on myself with the record.

But it's like it's kind of this open ended. It's not like I'm not trying to avoid the question of what's my sexual preference. I'm just I'm I'm not in a hurry to answer it like that kind of kind of attitude, which I really like it's like being open. And I truly open. There's you know, I this the last the last few years, I had a had a, you know, a really amazing friendship that was sort of different than than anything. I've ever had with somebody. With a guy that was non sexual yet was you know, incredibly intimate someone that basically is you know, for lack of a better word. I don't mean to pigeonhole him. But, but, you know, a straight guy, and and we, you know, we've we've had a very awesome special friendship that definitely goes beyond go. It's like in another territory, but it's you know, kind of unlike anything I've I've experienced before. And it's it actually was really great for me because it was sort of what I needed most in my life at that time. I mean, I just blow it up from my partner of eleven years. And here was somebody that I could be incredibly intimate with that, you know, loved me and loves me. And and likewise and just. Being able to spend time with somebody in this sort of like almost like boyfriends in a way, but not having to, but but the sort of the sexual side of is it's just it's not there.

And that that that real like, you know, love from someone the close acceptance. Yeah. As well, especially and it's it's just interesting because I don't think that it's. In this moment in time. Now, I think you know, men or people or a little bit more open to to different kinds of really because if you were to look at that from the outside, it'd be like, oh, those, you know, if guys are they're like hooking up there. Like, you know, what's up with that? You know, we're like he doesn't really know. Yeah. He's used or but, but no, I think that it's I think that there's definitely a a lot more elbow room now for all kinds of relationships that aren't even necessarily sexual between men. Yeah. You know, we mentioned New Orleans. So let's talk a little bit about how your love affair with New Orleans because you would just flip from Chris. I just split from. Yeah. My partner, Chris. And this was over three years is was three years ago in October. I just always wanted to go down. There always always always wanted to live down there. I think it's really a.

It's it's it's it's funny. I've actually gotten I've gotten messages from people that have been really moving people that I don't know that that have written me. And Ben like, I was I was in your biology class. And you know, I saw what was happening to you. And I never stepped in. No, well, you know, I've I've got multiple messages from from different people that sort of were there and saw you know, I was only the schools three thousand kids just about twenty five hundred kids, and I was the only the only out student she and the entire school. So I was I was I just had a, you know, I was a target. Sure. For for love for. I was at time by love. Do we all know what that's like anybody ever any of the roads ever try to get you to suck their weenies? No. I'm I mean. Yeah, I'm trying maybe not though. I mean, definitely, bro. Dudes in my in my lifetime. And yeah. In my in, my younger days, and in college, you know, I- I sucked a lot of bro. Weenies? Yeah. Remember single out Persson in my high school experience, not one it was just not really there's don't do. It wasn't done. It wasn't. It wasn't done. I graduated high school in ninety six and I came out in my sophomore year of high school which would have been like ninety three ninety two ninety three. It seems like almost a century's worth of difference between. Yeah. Yeah. Just between ninety five twenty fifteen like shit. Yes. It size of chain. I mean, even like teeth. I think about scissor sisters and. You know, a two thousand four when we came out and two thousand nineteen we're coming up to now in the cultural landscape for you know, what we were doing. And then you look at like the cultural significance of drag race. And the that's had on on the world end to young people and kids. It's great people identifying and feeling that alone. Yes. Because of that. Yes. I really liked the I really like the the the growing amount of people like boys, especially who were. These seem to be uninterested in identifying with the sexual preference like a m-, not gay. I'm not straight up like there's pan sexual or whatever. But it it's it's less of it's much less fixated on an agenda or on a specific specific like you're gay, you're straight or like that dichotomy which is very cool. That's more realistic. Yeah. Sure. Because I mean, I. You know, I think everybody's on a spectrum. I unfortunately am on the far side of the spectrum. You know on the Kinsey scale six, and I really wish I wasn't, you know, but I do think that there's plenty of people out there that that you know, that aren't a one or a six, in fact, I think probably like a, you know, pardon the expression, but a Butler. I think that's. You know, I think I think a lot of people in somewhere around around there. So it makes it makes it kind of sense. I think that you know, we've had to identify identify as gay and lesbian, or if you know for for for survival and away and in the past, and I think that that's probably changing, and that's probably younger people feel different about it. And it's very it's very interesting. I it sexy. I live in New Orleans part-time and and. One of the things I love about just the the the culture down there is especially kind of you know, sort of the local. There's this great kind of like. Burlesque queer sex worker universe down there. That's really great. And yeah, it's very superfluid. And you know, there's there's the guys down there. You can't really pigeonhole, but they can't really pin down like, and I think that's really high. I think it's very sexy. I do too. Yeah. No, go ahead, while I was just going to say, you know, I fit right into a shoebox, unfortunately. But what we know? I I agree. I think it's really sexy. And also I've observed that there's many guys that I've I've met in the last year. So like you want your brain wants to put them in his shoe box. Because you wanna try on those shoes? You know?.

And then you know, my dad was really kinda staying out of it. And then my mom, and I got in a fight afterwards in a verbal altercation sort of the Haagen-Dazs of the MGM grand excel. And he know what it was it was tough. But when I got back to Seattle at the time, I was working for like a queer youth outreach program where we would throw queer youth parties.

Would your mom say boo was issue? I think that she was you know, I think my parents were very scared. This was nineteen ninety sort of been ninety four ninety five and you know, which was a really a very different time for for for gay men for queer people. You know, I think they were really still were really scared for me. It was a scary. It was it was a scary time. Sure. And you know, but what they didn't, you know? I I was very active in the queer community, and I was very aware of of of the lay the land. And I was I was, you know, involved in these organizations that were you know, helping pass on the information or safer sex. I was very much like, you know, already sort of steeped in the yeah. And and and knew what was going on. And you know, was just was already part of gay culture. So I was a lot less naive than my parents probably thought I was okay. You weren't some helpless little kid. Who's just like? Yeah. No. Yeah. I was very I was I was I was you know, I was a pretty I'd seen a lot by the time. I was sixteen years old. You know, because you were also an outsider into high school, right? Yes. Yes. For the for early high school kind of when I was first coming out once I ended up in Seattle. My last.

It is very distinct and capable ARA to present to you the complex multi talents of musical sensation and worldwide global phenomenon known as. Share? Welcome. Welcome news. So thank you for having me. God is one of my favorite songs. That's right. What's that? From for those for those who don't know that is the the the welcome to New York song from the crocodile Dundee soundtrack the score from crocodile Dundee is really one of my favorite scores of all time. It's actually a great record and fun at parties as well. It is fun at parties. Indeed, Paul HOGAN, it's Paul HOGAN. And then what's the woman's name? Linda, Linda Evangelista. No Lynn lenient day, get married or did they got married and they got divorced. And I think it's a it was Hogan's like six marriage. He had another wife that he had divorced and married. A second time. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. He's a very interesting Keri got a little gnarly. I think. Yeah. I think all this marriage is I think really went dark after a while. I did it all I think they just. Split amicably after a certain period of time because all different paths. Fire the flame of love. Sometimes just you know, burns out on its own. Yeah. I can see three tents in the Paul HOGAN household for some reason. I would enjoy I'm just gonna come out and say it I would really enjoy watching having a screening of crocodile Dundee three who was that crocodiles in space. Crocks? One where does that take place? There's no gravity. I I don't I don't even. I don't even know if it I mean, I never saw to just remember when it like it did have a theatrical run, unfortunately. And actually, I know way too much about it at for not having. No, well, so the two writers that were hired to write the thing wrote this full scripted. They didn't want to do it. But they were kinda struggling in their career. Right. So he got this gig. And Ben Paul HOGAN was like, okay, we're going to do a little rewrite. He changed basically if the scene was HOGAN walks into the kitchen, grabs a knife each. It's like walks into the bathroom, grabs a toothbrush like change, nothing except certain words, and and look Asians. Then he tried to have the screenplay registered under his name. So for screenwriter credit? What happens is if you write something, and you don't get screen credit. You don't get residuals. Right. And you don't really get paid that. Well, so those guys had to take him to whatever writer court for the writers guild and the writers one and then HOGAN appealed, oh my God. They want to. He appealed again and then on the promotional tour. He started just calling them out. So he like fully went nuts on these guys. And yet they really like Meg reasonable person. Does. I mean how much money is there? Get to further residuals of crocodile Dundee three is my question, especially after he owned crocodile Dundee like that he owned that. So he made at least fifty percent of the total prophets of that. And the second one. So we didn't need that money. Would you have sex with him that character, I would have sex with that character? Not now, then what kind of bar? Do you think he'd beat him in because there's a quite a bar scene in crocodile Dundee, really? There's a horrible bar scene in cargo. But I think in the you know, if I was in the outback. Yeah. Like in a you know in kind of a dusty saloon or something and crocodile Dundee walked in. I'd let them throw it on me. But if you would if you bumped into him like on a busy street in New York City. When he's still the fish out of water. It's the summer. He's wearing a vest with. No starting. He's got the knife. I'd still probably hook up with him. Yeah. Totally. I mean, you know, I it during that era. Yeah. He was really hot. Yeah. I bet his as penises is is very like hard and hot hard and hot.

"The question is, are you hearing Billy shears or Billy's here you know this, this is one of the one of the primary pieces of proof for people who believe this theory there, these ideas that various audio artifacts have been hidden inside Beatles recordings. They give you clues to the story, right? And that's that's one of them. But there's another one that might be even more. More familiar to our fellow conspiracy realist. Well, there's, there's a lot of them and a lot of them. A lot of this one revolves around hidden images. A lot of a lot of most of these to revolve around things hidden in plain sight or playing audio Ray. Gray said Audu artifacts earlier, but it's important to notice a lot of the album artwork itself is pointed to as proof of this. Yeah, album art and even press photos and things like that. But yeah, so one of the lyrics on starting Pepper's lonely hearts go band of the most gorgeous and probably most popular songs on that record a day in the life has the lyric. He blew his mind out in a car. He didn't notice that the lights had changed and also that you know people point to that as being a reference to Paul as death. And then in strawberry fields forever, there is a what's known as a backwards mask which we've talked about quite a bit on the show. In that most recent episode we did about satanic panics in Italy. I think we've talked about Led Zeppelin back mask, but in the song strawberry fields, there's a part where when you flip it backwards, it sounds like John Lennon saying, I buried Paul, he actually would would. The the, the record on this and say, I was saying cranberry sauce. I'll let you be the judge. Yeah, let's let's play this real.
