A 20-Year Megadrought Threatens Hydropower in the West
"A twenty year. Mega drought in the west is threatening hydropower. For millions of people so the federal government is taking emergency action it sending water from other reservoirs to lake powell to help. Keep the power turbines. They're spinning. here's michael. Elizabeth sack is from colorado public radio at elk creek marina. People wait in line to back their trailers into the water to pull their boats out. And some like walter. Slut cough are frustrated. Resumes legua up and down many times. But we're not happy with it this year. Of course because we're all getting kicked out early and we pay for slips for the season. Blue mesa is colorado's largest reservoir. It's already less than thirty percent full. And now it's being forced to sacrifice more water to send to lake powell eric. Logan is head of operations at elk. Creek marina he had to shut down six weeks early because of the low water levels. It's a big hit for us for sure. There's a bunch of employees. That doctor would be employed into october and suddenly they're out looking for employment in middle of august. The deepening drought in the west has dealt a double blow to blue mesa this summer with climate change there's less snowpack and warmer temperatures increase. Evaporation so less water is making it into the colorado river and reservoirs like blue mesa and now the federal government is taking water from this lake into other reservoirs. If we were full it wouldn't be that big deal but since we're already so low and we're barely hanging on by our fingertips on trying to stay open. You take eight feet of water and suddenly we got shut the doors and move everything out to deeper water and there's nothing we can do about it. Lake powell on the utah. Arizona border hit its lowest level on record earlier this summer. Logan worries the reservoir will need even more water from blue mesa. If the drought doesn't improve the question is are they going to release whatever we get. That would become a very big problem for everyone around here. Blue may sat and the other reservoirs were built in the nineteen sixties for times of drought. It's a bank of water that the states can tap when they need. It says john macleod. A water lawyer in colorado. The water always goes to lake. Powell and this release is part of the plan. And it's using the reservoirs for one of their intended purposes

"Quote open defiance of the constitution. And that's how. The justice department described the texas abortion ban in a brand new lawsuit argues that the legislation is unconstitutional and should be struck down. This is the first major move against this law from the biden administration. Attorney general merrick garland said the law which bans abortions after six weeks. Which is before. Many women would know that they are pregnant with no exceptions for rape or incest violates supreme court precedent by denying women their constitutional rights and he said the provisions that effectively deputises private citizens to be bounty hunters was a quote unprecedented scheme and quote to evade responsibility. This kind of scheme nullify. The constitution of the united states is one that all americans whatever their politics or party should fear if it prevails it may become a model for action in other areas by other states. That's the point. One should be fearful of this regardless of where you stand on abortion. The supreme court has not yet ruled on the constitutionality of the texas love. The conservative majority on the supreme court allowed it to go into effect. Anyway justice steven brier told. Npr today that he thought the majority was very very wrong to do that. That's easy to see why because most abortion providers in texas have now already closed their doors out of fear of being sued by vigilantes or worse

Ian Millhiser, Senior Correspondent for Vox, Discusses SCOTUS and the Future of Roe v. Wade
"Ian millhauser. Welcome to fresh air. It's good to be here. thank you so much. Let's start with the basics about the new supreme court ruling on that texas restrictive abortion law. Can you summarize the basics of this law to refresh everybody's memory before we delve into a deeper. So this is a law. That's effectively a a ban on abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy which is very very early but most people aren't even aware that they are pregnant into until long after that on and this is also the most aggressive antiabortion law that has taken effect in the united states since roe v. Wade in one thousand. Nine hundred. seventy three on sewer talking about a generational shift potentially in how the supreme court is looking at abortion. I think that this order probably for shadows a decision in a case that the court is expected to hear probably this winter that could overrule roe v. Wade altogether certainly is going to take a very deep cut into abortion rights and it's the product of years of work. I mean you you have to give antiabortion advocates credit here. They've spent many decades working for this moment. They elected president trump who promised to appoint judge justices. Who had overruled. Lovie wade at it. Looks like we are now on the cost of a supreme court decision doing just that because the makeup of the supreme court has changed so much

That have made it easier to vote during the cove nineteen pandemic which is still going on in texas and the rest of the country. This comes after governor. Abbott signed the legislation that made it effectively impossible to receive abortion services in texas because anyone involved in providing any abortion services to anyone at any time can now be sued by anyone. There is no exception on that law allowing abortions in the cases of rape or incest or both after the governor signed the bill restricting voting in texas. Today he said the next thing he's going to eliminate in texas is rape forced them to carry pregnancy It doesn't require that at all because obviously it provides at least six weeks for a person to be able to Get an abortion.

Biden Administration's Relationship With International Allies on Shaky Ground
"At the end of the trump era in the us. The breathe to sigh of relief. America i was over and new president. Joe biden's words. America was bug. It was a signal. That europe's relationship with washington could return to normal. But it now seems that this reaction was premature and after the initial honeymoon period. There are serious doubts about the biden administration and america's commitment to its international partners joining me to discuss the eu us. Relations are suzanne lynch brussels playbook author political and former washington correspondent and dave keating brussels correspondent for france twenty four. Thanks both very much. For coming. On the show suzanne with former us president donald trump. They were doubts about american commitment but she. Now american competence. I think there is a lot of and soul-searching happening at the moment in brussels about what happened over the last few weeks. Of course it's only a couple of months since joe biden visited. Brussels and mesh with edgy seven leaders in the uk. a now. I think that meeting people begin to ask what choose achieved because you know six weeks eight weeks later. We have this. Chaotic scene evacuation situation if afghanistan where effectively america is calling the shots. It's driving the agenda. On the eu and nato allies america have to follow. So i think what we're seeing now is a real focus in brussels about the idea of some people caught a strategic autonomy can the eu depend on the us or work with the us to the extent that before am considering they feel that now. America is retreating back and is moving away from the kind of multi-lateralism that was the fulcrum of transatlantic relations after world war. Two
What Will the Texas Voting Law Do?
"For almost fifty years the supporters of abortion rights pro-choice forces have been playing defense to protect abortion rights from a massive mobilized effort to destroy them but in the valence of that battle has switched literally overnight. Spring court basically waved through this texas ban on abortion. And so now the mobilization needs to switch in practical terms on the ground texas republicans in the conservative justices on the supreme court of the majority of americans do not want them to do. I'm not even sure to be honest that a majority of texans would support this law. Do support this lot to be honest. I mean according to twenty twenty exit point out of texas nearly eighty percent of voters think abortion should be legal at lease available in some instances only fifteen percents absolutely no abortions which is pretty close to what this law does law bans abortions wants. Cardiac activity can be detected the embryo something usually happens around six weeks and that's eighteen weeks earlier than the legal standard set by roe v wade back in nineteen seventy three in that landmark seven. Two decision wasn't a five four decision that roadway decision it was seventy two easy enough to google and banning abortions after six weeks means essentially banning all abortions because many women do not find out they are pregnant in the first six weeks and in fact when you got this legal threat hanging over people. It's unclear that anyone's going to perform any kind of abortion. No matter how early believe you me right now in texas it is an almost certainly. There's a teenage girl. Somewhere in that state was pregnant by her abuser or by a family member or by someone who sexually assaulted her she might be fourteen or fifteen who cannot get an abortion that is a near certainty
NBC News Poll: In Texas, Voters Are ‘In-Between [Extremes] on Abortion’

Texas Law That Bans Abortion After About 6 Weeks Takes Effect
"Texas law banning abortions. After six weeks went into effect yesterday law prohibits abortions wants cardiac activity can be detected an embryo which very early the law also allows. This is sort of twist allows private citizens to sue abortion providers and anyone else who gives who helps a woman obtained an abortion in texas including even an uber driver who might have given a woman a ride to the clinic. The law makes no exception for rape or incest. The supreme court refused to block. The banner has now materializing a huge threat to roe versus wade. So what do you think under his eye. Where are we in the handmaid's to be the fruit. Blessed the fruit. It'd be fruit here not to joke about something so serious but let's not but to joke but not joke tweeted something yesterday And that is this that why men think they have something to say as much. They think they want to say about this when their contribution to the reproductive process last six or seven seconds. Maybe eight if it's been awhile and women for the next nine months and then feeding the baby breastfeeding afterward do all the heavy lifting all right. This is this. Is the women's show here and men want piece of this action like they've got something to say here it's dictatorial. This is i think janet jackson said it. Best in the first five seconds for in nineteen ninety-six smash album control okay. This is a story about control. Okay like it's about power and control. This is full handmaid's tale. That's one thing. The other thing as it relates to roe v. Wade as i understand roe v wade in nineteen seventy-three also texas with the same issue the supreme court as i understand it felt that texas's laws or whatever regarding abortion violated a woman's constitutional right to privacy about privacy. So what is it about this new situation. That is also not a violation of privacy.

"They're like singing songs. And the thing is the songs are actually like. There's a lot of talent behind this this. The songwriter is like a famous songwriter. I i can't remember like he.

Who is who has such a because it is a kid. Bear who has been adopted by stephen topple ascii and the other son in the one joke referring to the fact that they're bears in this universe. The other son is like like a mind boggled that this child doesn't realize that he is adopted because he is a bear which is not a bad joke and then the rest of the movie doesn't really make. Hey about it i. It's a strange movie. I can't quite get across bent my mind. I like the idea the idea that the people making the movie. We're not we're like no one's going to be interested in how a bunch of bears started and became a band. We got to pick up after the after the band's broken up nobody's interested in the origin of country. Bear band isn't there isn't a montage of christopher walken gleefully destroying scale models of country bears like music halls or something. He's i mean like you he's committing christopher walken. He's not he's not following this part in. He's very angry about this country bears for reasons that kept clearly in the movie. Dan mris do with their heroes but It is a wacky movie.

He was supposed to be a bear and they just ran out of bear costumes or that he walked onto set and they were like. Oh yeah. that's a bear and you're like movie. Hasn't you know in common with cats is obviously the main characters. Are these anthropomorphic animals and it is not as disquieting as the cgi like cat. I put over normal people but it is sort of. It is a weird look because these are people in bear suits it seems with animatronic bear heads and they fall square in the middle of the uncanny valley. So it's an unusual occurrence on disney. Plus you can watch it after the talking just reminded me that cats is on hbo. Max i think this may be the night when i forced my wife to watch i my wife my back. My my wife. And i talked about watching cats the same way that some couples talked about like having a threesome. Where she. i don't think he's like not that into it but she she'll do it for me. She's like yeah. I guess i'd watch cats. Let you and. I'm like. Maybe tonight's the night she wants to be g g jim okay. So i'm going to recommend a movie the year nineteen ninety. The city detroit michigan the movie martial law. That's right it's a martial arts movie set in michigan we have. It's about a pair of police officers. One played by the son of what's his name. We give me a second fucked up. It's okay don't know. Don't don't erase it. Dona raceway just said. I'm fixing it. Okay almost there The lead is played by chad mcqueen. Who is the son of screen legend steve mcqueen and his partner. Steve mcqueen is the name. You couldn't remember. Yeah yeah yeah i mean. That's pretty clear. And his and his partner is played by the always. Wonderful cynthia rothrock she's amazing And it's a movie filled with karate. Mullets it opens with a hostage scene. Where our hero dress up like a pizza delivery guy and then beats the shit out of a bunch of criminals and the action is shot. Well in that every time somebody gets hit there's always some kind of a reaction shot so like when when our hero martial law blast somebody in the jewels the guy it cuts to a shot of the guy being like. Oh my nuts. It's great and of course the villain in a world of hockey mullets. The villain is the only unmolested karate fellow. That's right david. Carradine is in this movie any and every scene. He's got a really cool stick. Any practices the technical dim mock where he punches people in the chest and they die from it. It's gret martial. Law is the movie stewart. Is me thank you. I'm glad i'm glad we're all bringing out the real big guns on the day. We have alonzo here so somebody knows better than any of us. I mean marshall. where's elliot. How much less go. I feel like i need. I feel like i need to rework my recommendation. I was seeing as this movie today. Involved a child and and trauma. I decided to go with the movie that i watched just recently that i had only learned that recently called lady bug from nineteen sixty three. And it's a movie about a group of schoolchildren. There's no entry school that gets an alert that a nuclear bomb is going to be dropped in the area that the war has started and they to go through what they're supposed to go through. Which is that the teachers take all the kids home and it's kind of about how the adults are at a total loss to really know what to do in this situation. They don't know if it's even a really a real alert a lot or not and how. The kids are left to fend for themselves. More or less and it's not like a lord of the flies type thing it's more of a the children trying to mirror and make sense of the emotions that the adults are feeling and taking on those roles and by doing so kind of showing how ridiculous they all are and seeing. It really brought home to me. Some things that i kind of didn't want to admit to myself about children during the pandemic right now and specifically about me and my kids and how. I need to pay more attention to kind of how they're reacting to this whole situation through my reaction to it There's one particular where this girl runs home. And her dad is a farmer and he's shoveling some stuff. I don't know what he's doing and she's like the bombs. The war started the bombs dropping. And he's like what and she's like the war they're gonna dropping the bombs and he's like i'm busy. I've got work to go. Talk to your mother. And i was like who will that hits home. I've had that conversation with my son. A bunch of times in the past year. Where it's he's like worried about something. And i'm like i've got work to do like we'll with later so it really struck home for me not in the way that the filmmakers intended because the movie is almost sixty years old. But it's called lady bug lady bug and it's i think just got re released a released on dvd. But i found the whole thing on youtube. So that's where..
"six weeks" Discussed on The Flop House Podcast
"Shut up all right. All right let me on girl your own car value carly from I will say. I will say do not see. Do not see dog. eat dog of that one. If you're you're going to avoid plenty of particularly and you should probably fit in his performance as fu manchu in grind house in that in for women s don't do that Carly last name withheld writes. My brother has worked for all of his adult life in the hospitality industry in las vegas. We were watching home alone two with his eight year old daughter and she said of the tim curry character. He's the bad guy right after a long pause. Jt said well. He's just trying to do his job. And i could feel the two decades of hard work and shitty guests in his tone. My question is how have you ever watched a movie in which a character inspired a strange sense of pathos in you because of your own experience levy so much cheers carly last name withheld. I i love that anecdote you know. He's just a guy trying to make his way the world like he's covered but he's been put in an untenable position. Where he is he is. He is trying to keep a child on his own in new york from i guess be stealing from a hotel. Best-case scenario worst-case scenario being murdered in the middle of the night by the those kids shouldn't be honest like that. He's the hero of the movie and a lot of ways. I feel the same way about two korean. The shadow mean in some ways. I guess the wet bandits are the heroes of the home loan movies because all property ownership is theft at a certain point and so just trying to fix the iniquities in the system. Yeah So i don't go. All film critics critics have empathy for the bob alabama character and the lady in the water. Like what's your problem night travel. We're just here to make a living. I think anytime there's a character in a movie who is the like exists in the movie only to be the butt of a joke. This is not necessarily based on life experiences except that people have been made fun of many times in my life but like when a carriage this only the other characters can score jokes off of them. That always bothers me. Don't don't create this character and bring them to life just it's one. It's okay to create a dumb character and have be funny for the audience point. It's like your heroes are like ripping on somebody in like you created this character just for this purpose. Come on one of the reasons why there's never a character in a movie named stuart. That isn't like i mean it feels like the characters only named stuart because they couldn't get away with naming them like bert or something like yeah. I have a friend named gary. He's very angry about how he's been handled. I will say that. I have a special antipathy for movies. About slackers like slacker. We've we've noticed so we've talked about it anytime. there's a character in a movie. He's like a slacker. And it's like why. Can't i just stumble into my dreams. I'm like who is i. Don't care about this person not interested in your hero is the the principal in back to the future. Who hates slackers. As much as you. I mean that's a hero necessarily ogre and the revenge of the nerds series is my hero because we both hate nurse and sleeves. We hate sleeves to end any anytime. Someone in a movie is like in the story anytime. Someone's trying to do their job and involves customer service of some kind and the hero is being the protagonist is being like a dislike difficult or unreasonable. And we're supposed to get mad at the at the customer service person for not bending to there will and i was like hey do these the right way come on. This reminds me of working. Barnes novel having people come in and demand books that didn't exist and then get mad at me when i demand the manager when i could not newton stuff. Yeah yeah but they'd be like where's that redbook. Where's that other someone said. Where's the book with the blue cover. That i saw a month ago as like. I don't know who was hit by the title.

I'm not recommending. This very generous of you did. I'm not recommending movie as a traditional good movie by by any means there are elements of it that surprisingly work. But i'm recommending. You'd not be about to tell me that you watched hillbilly elegy on your own. And we can't do it for the podcast. No no no. No i close though i'm recommending two thousand. Two's the country bears because oh boy. I watched this movie and like you know like it is the movie bad movie that has made me laugh. The most sensing cats like. I almost laughed as much at some of this as i did. The funny thing about this movie is like okay is a weird idea. Objectively to be like okay. We're gonna make a movie that is about the the disneyland attraction the country bears which is just a bunch of bayer singing country songs. Animatronic bears not real bears. Let's clarify before ellie jumps in animus. Right bear seen before you die before you disappointed generation of listeners. Who are going to can't wait to get to disneyland against that. They can see real bears singing country songs and this is during the period. Bring the artificial reindeer sausage. It'd be like these are going to love your pizza. Sausage create. this is during the period with disney. Had a real fever for making movies of its attractions. Which only struck gold with prior to the i guess they're making jungle cruise. It's not like this period over. They made it misbegotten ones and the funny thing to me about this movie is. This movie is about a group of bear musicians who were famous bear musicians who broke up and a young bear wants to get them back together. It's basically the plot for the new muppets. And and no one in the movie particularly makes any sort of deal about these bears being bears like the fact that they're bears basically immaterial to the story and yet they are. Bears posits a world in which like ninety percent of people are not bears but ten percent are bears and everyone just bear stuff or not. But they don't do bear stuff they just like they're at a buffet..

"Old if they touch will they explode. That is what happened then anyway. Man moody was exploding men so they. They had that ceremony. There are family now in the eyes of whatever whatever demon is living inside the dead bird. Fetish that nicky has as created and which is driving them to their doom. The next day patrick arranges rather demands of ballet audition for nikki. Haley is running these auditions hotel manager from ghostbusters. I believe it is And she really impresses them with our addition and they're like you know what we've got to use her today. Because i know this is an all kids brushing the nutcracker and it will destroy our young star that she is being replaced by a new person. We've only known for a day but we are doing this now. Yeah they don't just stick her in the fuck they. She's like the lead all of a sudden and i like looked away from the movie for like for like a minute and i came back and i'm like what is going. How's it possible that in one day she auditioned and now they are putting her in opening night of the nutcracker at lincoln center. And then i'm gonna just like you know what movie no explanation you're gonna give me. It's gonna make me swallow this. Whatever dress rehearsal. I think like that's their excuse for this. And she sort of comes in midway through but she gets like the media is part of the dance class. I think there's an unspoken conversation about how dreyfuss cosmetics underwriting there there's also a great scene where all the young ballerinas are applying their own makeup for For this production and their kids and it's like they would be able to do the same fucking thing. Master of stagecraft. Unlike that. that was the thing you really bumped on scene. Where's where where's the makeup percent so she. She's she gets to be clarified. A little bit in it. They well to be fair. Okay the movie makes it seem as if this is the new york ballet balanchine production of the nutcracker that they do every year this is like some kind of kids theater different choreography productions the movie those little sleight of hand there and while. She's rehearsing all day. This sick girl. Who's dying of leukemia. They are pushing her to the brink with with this labor herself. Patrick charlotte go out and buy christmas tree and carry it by hand into a hotel. I if i walked into a hotel with a christmas tree my hands bet. The hotel would have some questions. But i guess things looser back then. It isn't extremely poorly attended nutcracker performance but i guess that's what i was just amazed i was like they couldn't fill the seats a little more. This is a big hollywood movie. There's nobody there. But they she dances nutcracker end. This section feels like it happens for six weeks. There is a lot of nutcracker dancing in this. You say that as someone who has gone to the ballet and enjoyed it someone who loves ballet especially loves the nutcracker loves the music. I was like oh. They're putting her in right after they kill the rat. King oh this is the part where you know she. And she the nutcracker takes off his mask and prince now but The seat like it's seeing efforts. It's a professional ballerina in the playing. The part i was like okay. I get it now but it is a long time. Where you're just watching. Dudley moore and mary tyler moore watching children's production of the nutcracker and i kept looking at how much time was left in the movie and being like they're really running out of the running out the clock with this nutcracker performance like the can't be too much going on after this They throw flowers the sage. Evan applauds her her final dream as it turns out. Just take the subway home. This also took me back because it is nine hundred. Eighty s graffiti covered like disgusting subway. Train it so well really what. It was like a kid but she has some kind of illness spell. Movie sickness spell She's in pain and they they have patrick and charlotte argue for a while of whether they should stop the train or not. And it's gotta stop the train. My baby and dudley. Moore's herb it will just go to the next stop. that'd be quicker than if you and it was so funny that they're having the same conversation that i would have with my wife. If our train was just stopped in a tunnel which we get off at the next stop or do we just take a cab from here. And all the new yorkers try to help but they mainly just bustle around him. There's nothing they can do. Sheep nikki i will say about the scene it would. It would be very hard to magazine where child dies on a subway and not be moved. But i so. Maybe it's a low bar. But i i was a distressing scene because you see all these Other people on the subway watch this play out. Watch us drama. Play out and i thought that that was actually kind of a smart director. Total choice like the amount of time a they spend on like the faces of other commuters. Who are like holy shit. Who's out dying. And who's who's going to say. I thought it'd be hard to have a scene about the death of not making moving and somehow they somehow manage it because as store pointed earlier. She has not displayed a single symptom. Discomfort like nothing this whole movie. She has been carrying on like everything's great. She has just exerted herself through this very exhausting ballet performance and then suddenly it's on the subway where she literally just says it hurts and then bam drops dead like. That's oh come on moving. I i get a dancer. You leave it on the floor but like this is to another level and then they keep cutting like other people watching including this one boy who's like about ten years old who just stares as though he has no interest in what's going on and they cut back new york three. That's that's the. Us kept waiting. 'cause he gonna break. Is he going to start like is he gonna show emotion and be overwhelmed by this moment. No no that was ironically. That like dancing when they were cutting through these other people and train. I like that because it was the one of the few times they broke. Like hermetic seal on this relationship. Oh they do exist in a world of other people but that kid is total lack of response. I was like yes. That is what that is. That's a real new yorker response. And like i don't know whatever. I guess it could be more of a critique then a compliment the more i think about it the fact that i'm more moved by the bison bystanders who have never seen before in the movie then either of the characters. You're supposed to love this. Yeah that's a. That's a pretty. That's a pretty strong critique. I would say the movie not doing. Its job when you're like here's this kid. Who's this kid was more interesting than anything else going on in the movie i was like who's this little jerk doesn't care this girl tonight. What's his into bad ass. That so one other thing. He grew up to stephen miller. They should've thrown him under the train. A child i would never advise doing now to human being but so they're the run off the train. That's when we see it was an m. train from lincoln center whatever. We don't have time to worry about that because because it's the next because we're an ambulance all of a sudden going across a bridge. I know we're going down well. It doesn't matter what we're going to anyway anytime..

"Take. But it's one of those. I could see it being one of those like those comedies. That were very in the sixties and then you watch them now and you're like this is not age well this i understand that you rebelling against something. But this is not. This is not some most french comedies of the nineteen seventy certain things you wanted to rebel against should not have been rebelled against. Yeah so but she and instead they just have dr a horse character in central park so is like making love. That's good enough. Yeah or story to someone who has had sex like two three times like you know that it's just as good as getting in a horse drawn carriage guys but have you driven. Yeah of course i did. That was when i was on my way to that x rated movie. I watched which one is now which one well. It was a short a short video. I saw it on. somebody's computer. It was about fifteen seconds long. Wow it was my. It had some very interesting sound design. Let me say that. I'm so confused. About what the reality of this bit is that night at dickey's instigation. They have a little sort of play wedding with her dead bird voodoo fetish amazingly not rotted by this point as the priest and nikki conducts the ceremony where she has proclaimed vows of eternal memory of the love of this moment and there a family now and it is. So it's like it is such a midsummer type scene but they think it is touching and beautiful. It was so upsetting that this young girl. Yeah is like forcing again these two adults. One of them has a family into this mock wedding. It feels like the twilight zone episode. It's a good life. It's good that you're making us mary each other. You're making me abandon my wife and child good. You're making me sleep with your mom. Yes nikki these are all good. It's it's like it's it's someone who like it feels like someone who lives in a movie made it like who's not not fully aware of human emotions but like lives in movies and it's like isn't this adorable and like there's there's so much going like and what what has what gone wrong in this in this girl's relationship with her mother that she's like this is an okay way to do things like i'm like we've kidnapped this man isn't this isn't this seen like like mentioned on the poster like the posters like the girls dying the guys the groom is already married in the bride is in her sweatpants or something. I'm different yeah. I love that or the tagline listed on imdb three times because it keeps telling you not were never heard of that one of the things. I did read about it. Was that the promotional release for the movie. Made a big deal about how mary tyler moore and deadly. Have the same last name. Which is if that's what you're selling the movie on and do not have much not much to go on. I'm so glad. They pointed that out. Because i would have missed. Yeah it'd be like if the avengers press materials like there are so many christie's in this fucking move. Actually that should be the vendors really christmas time and they go. Merry christmas saw all new man. And gary.

"Charlotte starts falling in love with patrick. Patrick doesn't want to hurt his family but he's been disappearing for days if not weeks instead of he has been hurting his family. His wife assumes that he loves charlotte and he's like jelly wife asks him. Are you in love with charlotte. And he's like well she says. Don't come until you've done pick a lane marfo. She's very very reasonably. Says you can't have two families he says i am not involved with charlotte. Which very much is not the question that she asked him no. It also implies that he's involved with nikki which is worse which is terrible. So nicky loves the situation. She loves that she finally has a dad and her mom is finally falling in love and advises them to have sex with each other and is like it's so gross. It's so sitcom kit grocer. She's like tonight. I'm gonna sleep with my headphones on. Make love you're gonna make love to each other tonight. I'm sleeping with my headphones on. So i wouldn't hear anything. And they say life. You tasteful toys. Here are my barry white album. I think you'll find this. Little blue pill can help you pass any qualms you might have patrick but they then she they have a conversation that is so it felt like the kind of it felt that kind of thing that i see usually in like an alan alda project where it's to middle aged kind of upper middle class rich white people saying like i have such feelings for you. I think you should go because if you stayed tonight i just never ever let you go. I guess that would be the mature decision to make. Because i'm so torn by lust for you in love for you. We do love each other. And that's why. I have to leave right now and i was like they are so like. Let's let's say shake hands and say good night and it was like this. Very like I don't know what love feels like anymore or lust for that matter. But i assume that's it now so i think i'll leave. It felt like two robots that have been program program to tell each other. They love each other. There could be like a complex movie made about this. But this movie does not pick elaine as alonzo said before like either you. Don't kid dudley moore a family. Which is what. I would advocate for or you. Make it much clearer. That like you know like he like everyone's tortured over this. Maybe he realizes that he's kind of a dick lee nikki's who is nikki's where they divorced. Is it a virgin birth. Never told the it is a huge. It is a gaping. There must be some things that they cut out. Maybe because it is a gaping void that we never find out what the deal is with that because they're very it's a very different situation if her parents are divorced if her father died. Does she ever knew her. Did she ever know her. Dad does did her mother have have a child out of like those are all different situations. A child would react to. It just doesn't matter like a short fast talking englishman because that would explain her connection with him. Her dad was bob hoskins. That's the thing. Bob hoskins opening newly. There's a there's a feeling. Yeah that god created this family out of whole cloth for dudley. Moore's character to like escape from his his family which is fine. Yeah exactly Anyway they have this kind of like a similar similac rum. Kind of like kind of you know jordan wolfson animatronic character a conversation about Love and drivers drivers this through a big fundraiser at their factory community center house and patrick's wife and son show up. Oh shit things are going to go down except they don't. It's super awkward. But then but then as i mentioned earlier dudley. Moore's son goes up. Because dad don't think i don't understand and it's this weird moment was like so. Is it that your son. Also wants to have sex with mary tyler moore. That's why he likes gets it like the dick van dyke show on nick at night. I guess pants and that that dying girl is so precocious. I totally understand why she needs your attention. More than ideal. It look look dad. I'm going to college soon. I want to cut ties with his family to like. Let's just make a pact. You and me. We're this family doesn't exist anymore. Shake on it for happened. Mary tyler moore like sort of pulls the life away and they have like a conversation. Offscreen could be an interesting scene. But they don't show where like i. I assume what happens is mary. Tyler moore is reassuring the life that nothing has happened even though there is this emotional affair going on and this this is very strange because it is. The closest movie comes to acknowledging that like this is a really shitty thing. That dudley moore is doing right now but the rest of the movie and particularly the ending seemed to make like like what to make us think like no. No no like. You should be with mary. Tyler we get it to. We never see his family again after the scene like they're just not in the movie anymore i don't think so but there's so they might like be on the other side of phone or something. Yeah yeah so. Charlotte tells patrick. During during a very subdued grownup phone call again. This is kind of like alan alda emotions that she's met now that she's met his family and their faces. They can't do this anymore. And she and nikki are going to fly to new york. And maybe go who knows travel all over the world together and patrick is like atlanta. Yeah i mean literally. It is a bucket list situation. And and patrick is like no no he chases after them and catches them at the airport and it it is like and they're like gay we're together again and there's a segment there's a. There's a brief moment where having trouble with the metal detector at the airport. He just can't seem to get all this medal pockets and i was like. I can't figure out if this is supposed to be funny. Or if i'm supposed to do like no he's not gonna to be able to catch up with them or going to be like good stay there. Don't get stuck. I don't want to be these people. This is before the currently. Tsa like you should be like. You should be like walson. This checkpoint didn't happen after nine eleven. Dan i'm just saying like like to have this extensively funny set piece about like a guy who i assume as senator travels all the time because he's a senator. Yeah i mean. Although i accept the yeah those those days it was like let me check your gun sir. It has bulletin it good. That's the way to the gate. Just go up. There is your flame thrower fully charged. Okay good you're you're cleared now. This is gonna take the plane to cuba. Do you want to get in that true story by my family. went to spain in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight to celebrate my parents silver wedding anniversary gift where they were both born. My grandmother had in her house and unexploded diffused spanish civil war bomb allow. We took it apart. Put the pieces in different pieces of luggage and brought it home. And i still haven't as a door saw fantastic. That's really great. And you're dudley. Moore's change somehow making it impossible for him get to the lax a new york back then every now and then they'd stop you and they'd say actually. Can you check that bag. Someone wants to bring a bomb on in the overhead compartment. We'd really appreciate it if you could make space for it. Livas but yeah he he just. He can't there but he catches them on an escalator. I will say. I was like oh. Lax really has not changed very much in the past forty years because i recognize the tunnel that he was running through he catches them. They all also he. When did he buy a ticket. You buy the ticket on the plane like come on. Let's here for conductor comes down the road we go into new york dollars. Surcharge you the plane click on it earlier..

"Npr are that are being predators on married middle aged men community. Yeah well. She's taller that that's true. I mean she is also she's she has the most emotional control of anyone in the movie. The character remain where it's just like the adults do a lot of like crying and not being sure what to do and she's you know she's a kid movie so she's super confident and like kind of is always in charge Real say at this point like so other than the potentially worrisome nature of this relationship which is a huge hurdle again. I do not think the movie lake quite sort of like jumps on and like stumbles over the hurdle but other other than that likely. Carry them in your pocket. You're jumping hurdles question for for the first like twenty minutes to half an hour of the movie. I'm like okay. Like i don't like this one element but i could see how this movie could work and later on we wanna do our script doctoring. I might be up for that but like in our class segment doctor. Doctor gimme the news. I got a bad case of rewriting. You but the script flop. This part of the movie could be interesting. This like young girl who's like idealistic but is is is dying and the politician and a friendship like that could be interesting part of the movie and like for the first part of the movie. I'm like oh okay. I'm not loving this but we watch a lot of genre movies. It's nice to see a human sized drama and this is the point in the movie where the movie stops being interesting at all to me. Because it veers. Into a long romance between dudley moore and mary tyler moore and as referenced before they have less than no charisma together or chemistry and it is like it is just it becomes a very boring slog peppered with like me yelling at the screen about the way characters are acting. I mean there's three. I would say there's three major flaws with the story of this movie. One is not a very interesting story. And i say that if someone who has has found that i have a real appetite for older weepy melodramas like forty s weepy melodramas like that get really over the top but this is neither over the top enough nor is it believable enough to Nikki is not a real person at any point. She's like a movie perfect kid who she never gets upset. She never throws a tantrum. Like i have two great kids and they're constantly using using shit outta me always getting me mad when she gets when she won. Her illness finally overtakes her. And no point up to then. Does she ever really seem sick right like i was. That's because she's worth we'll get. I mean not only did. She never see sick she. She dances ballet the and three the to romantic leads. They don't have a sense of their romance doesn't feel pebble between those performance but also like it feels like the movie is giving you so many reasons to not want them to be together like there's so many good reasons they should not be in a relationship. There is no reason. I do not know why they fall in love with each other other than they are bonding over this dying. Pure child animal magnetism. Yeah and also the sort of like vague sense. That like dudley moore wants out of his marriage which is a not like a looks like life is long and we all have not happen in our. I'm not going to lose. People have complicated lives. I'm not going to necessarily pass judgment from afar on people but as a movie protagonists. I'm not like yeah. Leave your family for this crash. There's there's the idea of like okay. This girl is. She's an adolescent girl and she no. She's dying so of course she's going to be sort of intellectually sexually precocious. She's going to want to talk about this stuff because she's not going to get older. It's outta where she can wait until it's appropriate course she's gonna ask questions and blurt out inappropriate things and all that's fine. Whatever but in the context of a movie in which there is already this weird creepy relationship between her and dudley moore that era of movies. It was tending to sexualize girls at far too early age anyway. None of that plays so. I think that's the thing you could. You could cherry pick out of this and put into a smarter film but in this context. It's just grow anybody at any point travis. Bickel to show up and blasts dudley moore getting back to save you kid i do. I do want to say about the actor. The the young girl. Like the the the characters. Completely unworkable. But i will give her credit. She does good job trying to make it work especially because this is her only acting credit. She was a an ice dancer and a very acclaimed ballerina. But this is our one acting role. Yes so her grandkids. Put this podcast on for her so she can listen to it. She won't feel. I mean she's not that old she's like she's she she was. She was thirteen in the in nineteen eighty two. So she's not. I don't think she has grandchildren's castel. I wanna give the movie the credit i can't you know me like i always want to like say the thing that like. Look it is a cargo. I'll go. I'll go along with the premise that you always want to say nice things about movies. I'll buy into that premise. For this episode. Like look this is a terrible character. But but i've seen much more experienced child actors do much worse jobs with better material. I think she. I think if anyone if anyone had is trying and somewhat succeeding to make their character work a little bit it is her and her name is catherine healy. But it's should hold her head. She can whole yeah she. I mean she can hold her head higher than deadly more certainly because he's very short well he's dead. He has passed away right when he died. He got six feet tall. You're right so the jokes inaccurate overhead. You can't lift his head even higher. That's why that's why coffins are expandable. That's why they have those accordion sides on that's right. They had to dig up. Lincoln's body at one point and he had grown to seventeen feet tall. So so anyway. Long story short through things like carnivals together and avoiding patrick's family.

"How you can re engage if you have become disengaged and so it really is talks a lot about just the different ways that you become disengaged and one of the reasons. I'M SUPER PASSIONATE ABOUT. It is because Here a lot of people talking about burnout which I think is great and I think a lot of people go through a period of I think some burn out in our profession is is natural every year particularly around far CH- February and March when it just like everything just stinks and so It's we kinda tally. The play on words to its conclusion. I guess right. We'll just we'll just go fight the yes so a lot of people talk about burnout but the fact of the matter is that there are a lot of different reasons that you can disengage and so. I I usually give the example of If you are burnt out one of the ways to heal is to kind of pull back right like stopped doing as much as you're doing but if you're demoralized which can look a lot like burnout Demoralized the the way that you heal is actually to dig into a what. Your identity is as an educator and and start working towards passion projects and stuff like that so it's not pulling back so if you're constantly saying that everything is burnout It's possible you're not healing from the thing you actually need to heal from an so events You know Kinda passionate about making sure. All of those areas are understood. That's really interesting. Yes you know we we talk. We could talk all the time I I love that. You're one of the people we hang out with all the time at conferences and stuff because the USA so many fascinating things that I could just spend half an hour just talking about that one thing so that's really fascinating We tend to leave people with with One last question I would love to know in this. This'll be great for the people listening to What are three pieces of media? That can be a video. Podcast A book something. You're reading some some sort of piece of media that you've consumed recently that has made you thinker inspired. You framed the way. You're thinking right now Why don't you share three of those? We We'd love to hear what you're what you've been reading. You're looking at or listening to share while I A lot of what I've been reading and listening to an and researching has really been to the book because I've been finishing that up and and so Kind of be around some of the same things One of the books that I really love is purposeful hustle. And it's by Deanna Sing and it is About how you find not only find your person purpose but really live within that purpose and make decisions based on what you feel your purposes and so There are that I've been reading lately. I've also been reading or I finished reading demoralized by. I'll have to look it up. Doris. I think it's Dora San Toro. I think it is In in that book is a completely on Demoralization in the education profession. There's a lot of Stories in there of teachers Becoming demoralized that looks like and what they say. And how you can re engage and that book is banned A huge part of some of my Demoralization research and then finally The other book that I I'd dug out and I've been reading lately is called left behind. It's the story of the various. I'm reading this right now during the pandemic but it's the story of Everybody gets brought back to haven't asked you are like is there more than one left behind book you side on. Cameras. I did like a dog. Take wait for it So I won't lie. It's an incredibly well written book. It's Super Interesting. You know so. I'm not particularly religious and I mean I have some beliefs but to you know to say I'm like straight Catholic or Christian. I'm not and but I find that belief system fascinating and so I love. I love the books when I first read them. I'm loving it. The you know the second time that and reading them but there was just something to me. You should read this book and you should read it again. Look I can't tell people that because it's out so weird. So how can people contact you? Mandy? How can people get a hold of you? Twitter social media..

Edu stuff and I wanted you to share that out so that people can can. At least you know jump in on it. If they're interested so tell us what you do in. I guess you're doing this in the mornings soon. That's when you drink coffee right yeah well. You know. Sometimes at two o'clock in the afternoon but most normal people do it in the morning and I appreciate you checking up on me as well when I was sick that that was definitely a highlight so I do appreciate that The coffee EDU started literally. Because I had not really talked to anybody orban in contact with anyone and I was so flipping lonely so it didn't matter even though I had my kids around me or whatever it was I just needed adult conversation and to to say something you know. Have the kind of people around me who lifted me off in who want to talk about education and are kind of on the same wavelength with that and just have this kind of conversations and so I just put it out there and You know people people joined in. It's bad something people each week. Some different people but it's been really a lot of fun. Sometimes we talk about education sometimes. We don't A lot of discussion about. Just what's going on in your area with being locked down or homebound and comparing notes kind of for that so it's just something I'm doing for now to help ease some of the isolation and loneliness people so it's been really good Usually at depend on Wednesdays at nine thirty. Am Central Standard Time This week it had to be changed to tomorrow upside webinars to do so tomorrow. Thursday but usually time Wednesday nine thirty. Nice Nice that's awesome so one of the conversations that I'm interested in in your thoughts on revolves around not necessarily what's happening now because they think that we've really you know exhausted the conversation about what we're doing now and I'm done a little bit with it. I'm definitely thinking a lot about where we go from here and what happens next. I just wrote a blog post myself on participate blog about what happens next and I'm wondering what your thoughts are on things like So the conversation that came up in some of my twitter feed over the last couple of days talking about being afraid to go back whether we should be afraid to go back when when we get the chance to go back into the classrooms. What are we looking for? What should we be looking forward to? And what what do you think about like the psyche of of that kind of process of re integrating yourself into into a classroom? While I really do think that the sooner that you just accept that things are never going to be the same The the quicker. You're going to be able to adjust to what the new normal is and You know we don't even know when going back is going to be my kids at school district yesterday. Sent out an email saying that as of right now summer schools not happening So unless things start changing. They're not even going to try to do it online. They're just not going to do it at all. So you know looking into into the fall. I think it was the Ohio Governor. That said that he would be shocked if we went back in in August or September. And so we don't even really know when going back is going to be and there's there's definitely going to be shifts You know we're GONNA have kids who loved the online learning and who loved the virtual learning and who might want to switch into some sort of virtual program or that schools have and then we have kids who are going to be so glad to get back that you can't I can't even stand it like they're just so excited and But it's definitely going to be an adjustment going back I think especially for adults as we try to figure out You know just kind of what our new normal is again so I guess like I said I guess my thoughts are on the quicker that you can accept that. It's not going to be the same the quicker you can start adjusting to being ready to how it's going to be speaking to you about mental health and I'm thinking about mental health. Not only of our students. Because we've talked about that quite a bit on the show us. Educators people were were at home with our kids our spouses twenty four seven In my case I even have my in laws. Here's Back and it puts this stress. That's very unique. You know and I think the reason why it's unique is because normally you'd be able to get away you know you'd be able to go ahead and say you know in five days from now we're going to go do X. Y. Z. Or ominous go. Here I'm going to do this. And I think that also keeps relationships healthy being able to get away those types of things share and then we have these work demands right and so we are educating from home. Were doing this distance learning thing and Mike and I have talked about it you know. What is it like? What is you know and what I have heard? A lot of our educators talking about is like they don't know because none of us were prepared for this except for people like Mike who I actually has done some work from home. How do you separate your work and home life? And how do you make those two things work? And I've seen these kind of NEAT little schedules. Someone put together this schedule for their kids. And it's like one hour of project based learning and one hour of being creative and then we're gonNA put together things for thirty five minutes and then we're GonNa go outside for an hour physical activity or whatever might up tweeting and I actually. I saw that and I'm just like that so much BS. Because I at least I don't live in that perfect world where I can just plug my kids into those situations or plug myself Eve it. It's hard for me to kind of do those to say. Hey I'm going to do. This routine. Work is part of the routine for me now like now I started figuring that out is like you wake up. You understand that you're going to go to this place to do. This thing called working. You're going to devote yourself to that but when you come home then you can kind of separate those things. I think it 'cause it's causing kind of this new new mental health issues for people relationship issues in. How do we separate these two things at an? What kind of suggestions you have so that we can you know deal with this like you just said this is kind of the new? This is the new normal we have to. We're in the homes together for these long extended periods of time. What what are some suggestions you have? Because I'm sure you've heard other people with that or even yourself you very experiencing that too many. Yeah absolutely so I kind of had a little bit of a background in pieces of this before this whole thing started. You know one of the things. I had spoken to you guys before that I did was. I left the district and I had to figure out how to work from home and I was shocked at myself and how completely incompetent I was at figuring out like it really is. It should not have been as hard as it was and and I would go. You know I say to myself well I need to create a schedule and I need to stick to routine so I would you know? Set my alarm for like six o'clock and be ready to get up and then I'd hit snooze and I'd hit snooze again because I have to get up and then I'd be a half an hour late and I'm like I've already blown routine so he'd be. I'll just sit on the couch for a little while you know it was it. Was God awful and so I wasn't getting anything done and really had to figure out what's working at home meant for me and it. You know it meant that I am not a morning person like I don't like to work right away in the morning. I'm better if I sit and read or something like that and get something something more. You know quiet and more You know Can Solitary type work done on my own and work with people a little later but I had to figure all of that out and so I understand from the from the standpoint of trying to figure out how to work from home How to balance family and I still have four kids and and they're a little bit older so that makes it easier but I still have them and trying to balance them and then trying to balance a Wendy's work and when people are still contacted you at eight o'clock at night and and so I had taken that experience kind of coupled with the fact that I've been working with districts on moving them towards virtual programs virtual charter schools. Like that's been what I've been doing. His part of my consulting and when I work with districts on that one of the most important conversations I have with them is understanding the mental health aspect of being at home and From the standpoint of just starting a virtual program there are challenges that Students May at first who are at first taking a virtual program might think that it feels amazing to be able to work from home and tell the loneliness and isolation said and then they're like Oh. This isn't as much as I thought it was going to be and You know and in the same thing happens with adults like we're like you know people say to me all the time. Oh my gosh you are so fortunate you work at home and and that must be the best experience ever and I am super super fortunate for what I do. But there are definite challenges to I have to seek out adult conversation and N and I have to intentionally create situations where I get to be social. Mba around people. Or I don't get that at all and no matter how introverted you are. You do need that interaction. How process emotions? It's how we some of US Like I'm I'm a big processor out loud so I need to process ideas with people and when I'm home alone at missing that another thing that you kind of mentioned Glenn is is the specific situation..
"six weeks" Discussed on Coronacast
"I'm health reported taken Tyler Physician Journalists Delta Norman swollen so we saw every episode of Chronic. Haas answering your question. Let's get stuck straight in Elis asking. What should people do if they have mild called or flu symptoms but dight mate the testing criteria? Should they still self isolate look very good question? And I think we're going to get to the point of the testing regime where people like. Ellie do get tested. But at the moment they don't because we don't have the resources but the ideal world they would so I think that you should self isolate should stay away from other people. The problem is how long do you do it for because if you do have covered nineteen you can be infectious for up to three weeks? You're going to sleep for three weeks so I think you should. I sleep for at least fourteen days an idea but longer at least fourteen days gives you some sort of margin here and just be careful. So now Bob's asking about respect is what do we know about general health surviving karenna virus if someone's elderly but otherwise fit and healthy with no underlying health problems. Are they going to fare better than someone WHO's not? It's likely the statistics are still not clear. But it looks as though if you're eighty plus you've got other problems. Such as heart disease diabetes high blood pressure and so on according of Lung Disease. Then you risk does go up to fifteen percent. It does look from some of the statistics that if you don't have those problems. The only factor is age. Your risk of dying is much much lower but those those statistics are still a bit variable In the system in terms of what comes out of China and elsewhere so the answer is here of course is that you want to stay as healthy as you can't give yourself the best possible chance. What about male versus female. Because I know some of the early research that came out of China it was skewing slightly more mile. Do we know more about that yet? It varies bit so I think if you internationally it's still skewing a bit towards men some people think and it goes back to the previous question. One of the key factors here is smoking and one of the reasons for variable death. Rates case fatality rates are in the world can relate to things. How many older people in your community but also how many smokers you have because smoking does seem to be really quite poisonous. When it's associated with covered nineteen now in some countries there are more male smokers female smokers and but in fact Other countries particularly more developed countries. Women have started smoking quite a lot so it does even up the skills so it's not entirely clear why you get this gender difference and it's not fixed from country to country and so another one of the questions that we're getting a lot of stuff about the virus being on different surfaces Caroline's asking. Should we take shoes off before we come back inside? She's just into the shops. She saw someone spitting in the straight. She'd never thought about it before but now she's thinking about it. I haven't thought about either but it does make sense. Doesn't and you do wonder whether some of the traditions that you've got particularly in Asian countries of taking your shoes off before you go into. The House is not just about missing the carpet. You wonder whether or not this is a hygiene thing going back a bit late. Lamar stay a bit. Like in Ethiopia where you shoulders. There's quite a few cultures where now you've got this pandemic going on. You just wonder. Did this start. Because people intuitively knew how you spread disease and it's true that in some studies when you've looted personal protective equipment the part of the clothing that seems to get infected quite frequently the boots of protective personal protective equipment. So it might make sense to do that and to wipe your shoes down with a mild disinfectant if it doesn't ruin the very expensive.
"six weeks" Discussed on The Tennis Addict Podcast
"I've done that occasionally in the past but for the most part tend to try to week-to-week but look We are not living in normal times. The coronavirus obviously is wreaking havoc across the world. It's up ending global markets in in whence once it became obvious that this virus was going to spread all over and is started to affect markets. And you had the the real fear right that it was going to be a lot more difficult when it came to large crowds right That's when it became apparent. I think that the sporting world in general not just tennis Obviously we're not just talking about Tennessee. I mean we are on this podcast but look every every sport in the world. is being affected by this. It doesn't matter whether you're talking about Baseball basketball. It doesn't really matter. I mean every sport for the most part is really being affected because as I said the other day when the canceled Indian wealth I said it was the right decision inlet. I thought they were going to cancel Miami. Obviously anytime you get a large crowd together you increase the fact that you're going to transmit this virus onto somebody else and you can take a crowd of ten thousand people in maybe two or three people in the crowd that have Krona Virus. And it's going to spread in it's going to spread quickly in those people are going to take it back to wherever they're from whether it be some other place in the United States or other places across the world and then they're gonNA infect the people it's just you know we all know this right. This is how you know anytime. You have any kind of the flu in a kind of disease that can be spread. That's what you want to avoid and so I was not surprised when they announced the cancellation of Miami. Today I was surprised when they announced the the tour was going to be canceled for six weeks. And which is obviously a big deal that being said. I think it was the right decision. So deep the press release from ATP chairman a Andrea Gdanski Said and I quote. This is not a decision that we take lightly into represents a great loss for tournaments players and fans worldwide. However we believe that this is the responsible action needed at this time in order to protect the health and safety of our players staff in the wider tennis community and JEN in General Public Health. In the face of this global endemic the worldwide nature of our sport in the international travel required presents significant risks and challenges in today's circumstances as do the increasingly restrictive directives issued by local authorities. We continue to monitor this on a daily basis and we look forward to the tour resuming when the situation improves. In the meantime our thoughts which is our with all those that have been affected by the virus in quote and look. I was surprised that this was the action that they took I really believed that. They're going to wait another week. Or two to see how everything was faring with the current virus and then make a decision kind of more on a week-to-week basis. But the reason I think they ultimately did this was twofold one. It was proactive. Right you you make the decision you say. Look we're GONNA shut this thing down for six weeks and that keeps players from having to figure out okay. Are we going? We're not going constantly on the edge trying to determine whether or not they're going to be playing a tournament next week And it also allows fans to cancel flights. Cancel Hotels Way In advance. Meaning they'll get all if not some of their money back It that way you just you take the guessing game out of the situation and obviously the ultimate result in all of this is to keep the current. Oh virus from spreading By hosting these events and then causing more people to get it and then you know to spread it to others and to pass away and you know. I've read some comments online You know once this was announced jumped onto a couple of websites and I was looking at the comments. And there's some pretty terrible ones honestly I'm not going to repeat them necessarily but but we have to remember here. Is that at? The end of the day is much as I love tennis. I Love Tennis I Love Sports Obviously there's other sports that I I Follow in cover quite a bit. It's still a sport right. I mean at the end of the day it's not life it's life and death Some things are more important and people's health living you know that matters This is is important. It is as much as I love it. It doesn't come close to the value of human life That's why you know when they were talking about whether or not to allow the Australian Open to go on earlier this year. I cancel the thing. You can't guarantee that these fires are not going to the winds not going to blow the smoke in the direction if you have people with Breathing conditions Did they may be fine. Otherwise but if you get smoke involved People could you know people could die? They might not be able to breathe in. Then you know that happens and it's tragic and even one person dying is is not worth it. So this here is something. Obviously that is It's terrible The roadhouse World Health Organization has stated that they believe. It's going to get worse before it gets better In that I think was a major factor. In fact I know it was a major factor in their decision and they were in contact with them. They they know what the prognosis worldwide. At least a general picture seems to be and what the expectation is. And so you know you got to make the decision and I said you've got to be proactive. And that's exactly what I think the ATP in the IT F- Have stated What their goal is is to work together. Cancel these events and then hopefully in six weeks. Things are better than they currently are. So what does this mean when I say six weeks right? So basically there are no challenger events there are no events at all all Challenge events will be cancelled. Everything will be cancelled from now. Up through Barcelona and the Hungarian open and Budapest. So we're looking at the cancellation of Miami The Faez Sarah Firm and company. Us Men's Claycourt Championships in Houston the Grand Prix Hassan in March the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters the Barcelona Open as before in Hungarian. Open Budapest so all those are are cancelled and all of the challenger events as well that go on as well between between now and then also be cancelled so again it one one hand. It's terrible right. You don't WanNa see the tennis world bended Like this This a lot of people that go to these events to look forward to it every year people that have never been to some of these tournaments who are looking forward to it as well But again at the end of the day it's a sport rate in in the thing that matters most really is people's health and when you put that at risk or if you could possibly put that a risk by holding these tournaments you have to Cancel it you have to do. What's in the best interest of the fans that are coming to those events? And if you were to hold these events and then the end result is that you contribute to the spread of the virus and a possibility of your Tournament in the spread of the virus because of it contributing to deaths. That's something you don't want It doesn't first of all it doesn't it doesn't look good right that you've said We're GONNA hold the event and you know. Oh well you know that. That's pretty cold and nobody wants to see that happen. It doesn't look good from from pure standpoint. Isn't that good from our morality standpoint? You know it just it. Looks Terrible. Sounds terrible nobody wants that. I don't think anybody on the ATP In the IT F. One to see that happen in. WanNa see that their actions had contributed in some way to you know this virus infecting and possibly taking more lives. So you'd be practice you say when a cancer for six weeks and then we're going to see how it looks and then we'll go from there. Look in six weeks as they get towards. You know the end date to that cancellation. If it doesn't look like it's getting any better more events will be cancelled you know. Romo be cancelled Madrid will be cancelled. And then obviously you have the possibility that Roland Garros could be cancelled. And maybe Wimbledon to. We don't know at this point Yeah there's a good chance that in six weeks things will be looking much and maybe the tour can resume but this is just A. Hey would doing this now. And then we're going to see what it looks like in then we'll go from there You might see something like okay if if things aren't better if maybe it's stabilizing but it's still not looking like it's really getting to the point where we've gone Run to the point where it's it's worse it's been at it's worst Then you might see them say okay. We're canceling Rome and we're canceling Madrid. And then we're GonNa see what happens Obviously canceling a Grand Slam. Tournament is A huge deal Bigger obviously given the these are the four Grand Slams to see them. Cancelled would be terrible. It will be awful but again if the end of the day it's about doing what's best for people. It's not about the sports on some level it's about the world and the people that live in it and making sure that you know you're you're events are not contributing to the spread of the virus That's why I applaud the decision. This was the right. Move to make I'm glad that they did. It makes it easier for the players. Makes IT EASIER FOR THE FANS? There's no guessing game. There's new waiting and hoping and Nobody wants to have to make last second decisions when it comes to the travel plans and whether or not they should even do it because even if they honestly even if they didn't cancel you would see a. I think a majority of those stands would be empty because a lot of people would not go because of it so in a lot of ways. This was a good decision for number of reasons but also because then you took the decision for the for the people whether or not they wanted to attend kind of out of their hands and I think a lot of people simply wouldn't have attended they would have said I'm not going I don't want to get I. Don't WanNa get it I'M NOT GONNA go and on top of that. There could be a lot of people out there that might not be able to go because they have the virus and they know it in the they can't go anywhere anyway on on top of that. We also don't know whether or not you might see a lot of Closed BORDERS FOR COUNTRIES SIMILAR. To what he's doing right now Given the amount of cases that they have currently so again it's difficult decision it's complex there's a lot of things that factor into it obviously I'm sure there was a lot of discussion. I think there's been a lot of discussion over the last few weeks And again I think it's the right decision it's sad. I don't like to see the tour interrupted. I didn't WANNA see Indian Wells cancelled. I DIDN'T WANNA see Miami cancelled and I don't WanNa see all these events you know between now and the end of of Barcelona Budapest to be cancelled as well. But because I love Clay Court tennis I love watching it. It's my favourite part of the year. But this is what's being done and I think it's for the best. So that's all I want to just make my thoughts known It's the right decision. It's what should be done and I'm glad that they're doing it so If you'd like to send your feedback you can do so. Send it to.
"six weeks" Discussed on Let's Talk About It with Taylor Nolan
"Diabetes? You have a higher chance of diabetes etc so freaked out already being in the eating disorder when I was diagnosed with just like started birth almost like every felt like you know and so yeah so a new more in my weight stayed perfectly the same I haven't really suffered any in huge consequence from it but he had something to live with to write about because I think it's they still don't have a cure for it and it's something that's so common with so mad like one in ten women the thing that we just don't have really a cure for it although they're starting to get more and more medications to help treat it which is nice to see yeah Do you like how does that. How is the reaction usually like when you discuss that with the partner I'm I'm curious specifically about the hairpiece as to how is your mail your heterosexual male partners react to that I've done an episode like on body hair and I just feel like as women it's like we should talk about the ship because it does impact us and that goes totally against the societal standards of what beauty he is an overgrowth and yeah? I'm just wondering if he can share a little bit about that. Totally I usually like because I've posted search online about like having bellyache wax upper lip and stuff like that I feel like for the most part is just kind of how you where you know like. I don't care so it's like I don't care anymore about whether or not that affects might male partner it. It's just something I live with to me. It's not a big deal and so I think I have kind of dislike way of presenting it. It's just matter of fact I certainly don't. I don't make a big thing of it because I have Chester Lake a little bit like it's typical pain in the ass but I have a little hairs like right around like my chest. Areolas uh-huh Dips Ed. That's it's common yeah I used to be horrified by not like body image like horrified by and now it's just it's just it's just is what it is that I could do about it so other than like a other than get it waxed on every now and then but at this point I'm just Kinda like well the white me with without a shallow than to be on like whatever exactly yes no. I I feel very very similarly. yeah we could do a whole conversation on on body hair but I think that's amazing that you've been able to reach that place that I used to make such a big deal out of it and it was like so terrified of it and the more than I saw other women talk about him. They get my lip wax. I was like Oh my God people. Do this talk about that more because it's like an I've started started admitting obsolete body hair oftentimes net with like a unanimous like I'm in a group of women are animus amount of like Oh yeah same yeah exactly what so we're all going through this crap like spending like all this exorbitant amount of money to get rid of hair would really seems like pretty much all of us battle at regardless of PC OS. I decided that thicker hair that like cubs ed subjects because of that male line that melted saucer on but yeah so. I wish we could do a whole upset. You know there's there's quite a few women especially women with P. C. O. S. like the House beards because that's quite common. I don't struggle with that at all but there are women that have like enough excess that they literally I mean they do have beards and there's this one woman I can send it to our cannot think of her name right now but she she where's your beard. Probably she's British. She wears her beard or on an end. She was one of the first these people ever found on instagram that just owned her own. PCs Spirit in the work that she does is incredible. She really helped me be like wow okay uh-huh yeah yeah it just it makes me almost WANNA like transitions like conversation like sexual fluidity and like what what we find you know sexually attractive and I can talk about that for a lot of studies. There's a lot of studies that are coming around with with lesbians actually and there's a high what they're finding is that a high percentage of lesbians need. I'M NOT GONNA throw it a number because I don't have of it drives my brain but a high percentage of lesbians have zero US and they're starting to wonder starting to see if there's a possible Korla in you know identify defies bisexual so I've dated women and men throughout my that I would have to grow. I I've Yeah I've I've dated women at midday most of my life and I I've often wondered if there was a link between P. C. O. S. in that as well I've never I can't can't say definitively if there is or not but they are see more and more and so I think that attributes to fluidity as loan and attributes the sexual I often wonder if it's because I have more male starts thrown or more no hormones than someone else and I've wondered if maybe put me you know the Kinsey scale the ad wondered if that's kind of why I am able wise been attracted to both sexes throughout my life so accenture thing and I mean I think it's it's interesting because even just want to talk about like Feminine and Masculine Energies Getting in touch with both of those and being able to be attracted to both feminine. I'm and masculine energies and like I don't know there's there's so much room for conversation on this but I have to kind of wrap up our conversation today but I'm just so appreciative of the fact that you're so open about all the different things in your life even the things that you know our president that you struggle with that are really vulnerable for you and really really impactful to your life that I think it does take a lot of courage to talk about these things in a way that is healing for you and very informative and empowering for other people so I'm really appreciative that you know you've done this kind of work and are committed to doing the work and to sharing that thank you and you and on on that note just if you ever want her Arpaio offline or wherever but Madeleine Moon if you do you follow her on instagram.

Can you talk a little bit about how how you've been able to navigate body image while also being in a relationship whether it's you know any relationship in the last five years of Recovery Korea. Whether it's on your now we're past relationships of just how you've been able to even if you have been able to to open up with that partner and reach a good place with body image you know I think a lot of women in general that don't even have any kind of history of eating disorder order by on some level struggle with body image and that even just initiating or being intimate with a partner even just being naked with a partner a partner touching their stomach that all the little things are really difficult. Yeah is definitely still ups and downs amount as well degrade always will maybe not always I kind of just live with the idea that I could and I'm okay with but I I'm open about it. So if there's if there's a day like recently recently my partner and I were on a bike ride and I was snapping at him and I could feel myself being like really snippy and he likes stocks bike and what's going on and I just looked at him and I was like I'm having a really bad body image day. I'm way inside my head right now like can you just give me a couple of minutes and I just need a few minutes. Get out get out of it Don't you know like I was like pressure me. Just give me a second and he was like okay. How can I support you in that is like you support by? Just don't be irritated with me and don't worry about me because I think there's a lot for me. It's like if I'm having a bad body image stay in the partner goes overboard to try to let compliment it does does it feel sincere. It feels like they're just trying to like like fix it in an and then if they're not fixing it and they get frustrated at the partner because the partner is I'm not changing their mindset you know it it's like it becomes kind of like this kind of pulling the string and neither one can give and so I think it's like for me. It's it's been just being direct about it and being direct about being like especially if it's just like intimacy involved if I'm not feeling it. I'm just not feeling it. I'm not going to be like it's not gonNA change but it doesn't mean I don't you know I'm always like it doesn't mean I don't want you like I. It doesn't mean that tomorrow will be like tomorrow might be completely different as right now. I'm in this. Please don't know pressure. Just this is what I'm going through right. Now that like yeah I guess how do you feel body. Image plays a role in like having sex drive and nearly nearly our I think it's a huge factor for many many women and men really as you know. We don't feel good about how we look. It's quite hard to be intimate partner. No matter how loving partner isn't it's not the I think partners take that kind of stuff personally because they think like why why can't they you know what I tell them that they're beautiful or tell them that their hands loaner whatever almost time why I can't just get over it but that's where they have to do you know like the the person that's struggling with diagnose body disorder whereas I I don't see my body clearly sometimes still sometimes don't believe but like reminded of it when someone says something to me in like right. Oh my God I cannot see myself the way I just cannot see myself sometimes the way which could and it's it's just more like I just have to communicate that I think there can be a lot of funnel you. You know the can be a lot of misinterpretation that kind of thing especially if it's was sucks because Parker's take us seriously in a rejection right like if they if the partner feels rejected acted than they shut down and get resentful not understanding that it has nothing to do with them and that it's often it's it's one of your going with internally for you but if that's communicated then how can understand that right yeah yeah and I think again that's I mean hopefully something that people can learn how to do throughout treatment men just how to kind of communicate where they're at with that but I think you know even if you're not someone that's in treatment that learning how to communicate you know like I mean I mean I feel like days when I'm not necessarily struggling with body image but that was like don't feel sexy and you know if if my partner then I can tell all starts to feel somewhat rejected of just reiterating that like it's not that I don't want you like I do want you. I just not I just don't feel like in the mood. I just don't feel sexy. I don't feel you know and there's nothing worse than forced intimacy exactly hey. Hey all parties feel that yes all parties feel that fumble forced intimacy that can occur at times because we're humid's just happens yes. I'm all about that enthusiastic consent you know because if both parties are feeling that it makes it entirely different experience right so I think it's the communication petard. Let's slow time in saw partner's different to some are more receptive to hearing it. I certainly certainly don't have a lot of tolerance reporters that don't that can't listen in and hear feedback rate and I that's not you know that's not the type of partnership that I'd ever be looking for more partners that have that empathy to at least be able maybe not to understand but at least try to understand him put themselves in my shoes so that I can better put myself in their shoes whenever they're going through something to yeah and that's I mean I imagine communicate a lot just around the the recovery with eating disorders but I'm curious what role you've talked about and I think we should talk a little bit about that I I don't have you know I know bits and pieces about that but I think I imagined that something you also kind of have to make sure that your partners are open to learning and and hearing about an empathetic towards I wished infertility was talked about more. I feel like there's still a lot of shame around in facility not not shame but just you know women have a harder I think have a hard time talking about if they are dealing with issues around infertility which happens to like what one one in four women in the country I mean it's crazy. It's it's a lot of people struggle with that issue and when I was dating places to go variance syndrome it's it's a pretty common hormonal disease for lack of better word and so I was one of Sistema ovaries which means that I throughout my life I have never really had a period I don't mean straight and I have three times the thrown of an average woman and that's part of it and other other women have other symptoms there's a lot of different symptoms that can cost and Myanmar affected mercy hormonally I certainly have excess hair because this is just like shaving shaving but waxing my upper lip and what not a good I hate doing I used to watch all the time and now I just end up like Tweeden in and I'm like it's one of the most frustrating things once a month. I'm Mike. is been like what a whole fucking our my day tweeden browse ridiculous uh-huh no it's such a pain in the US thinking about getting laser honestly but we'll see someone on the line we'll now I understand why even the the title of I haven't unshaved in six weeks that much more to you search through things saying that never really thought about that ornament at your right yeah so I always have to have that conversation pretty early on in a relationship about the potential that I will not be able to biologically conceive or that if I do it's going to be calm potentially very expensive now of course I've spoken with people with zero s that have had no issues pregnancy spoken with people who had to go through you know like six rounds of es than spoken with other women that have have pc os are that were able to successfully bear child so I don't really we know at this point what that will look like for me. But of course I have to have the conversation so every time I have the conversation. It's always you know just like to be up front about it because if there is if I am dating somebody who wants their own biological child for you know or feels hills married to that idea you know that's something to be up front about open about I certainly also opt to like. I had to put boundaries on conversations like I. It's hard for me to talk about pregnancy and whatnot because I'm not sure I will ever have that experience so when I get I get I always feel a little bit saddened by comments like Oh. Maybe you're pregnant in something and I've had to put like a hard boundary around that kind of stuff because that's me is like not very you know lake with my partner. I was like look at them or something. I don't appreciate it. Comments thoughts like painful for me to hear because that's a huge issue. You know it's a huge tissue that I struggle and worry about is whether or not I will. I've also very happy for adoption or any other methods so I'm kind of I'm open to whatever ever at this point I'm thirty so open to whatever comes a log into taken life as cubby yeah there is it is definitely a conversation yet to have partners and be open about from the beginning otherwise always that's not fair to tell them and it's also something that I don't WanNa feel shame about so I I like to get it over with in the first place yeah and it's a part of of your story in part of who you are and so then are you. Do you experience like symptoms like every month like related. PTO ask pain or anything like that. No I don't other than I don't menstruate so I don't have periods which you know every now now and then I'll have a natural in that kind of how it goes every now and then we'll have one like once every four or five years but if I do have a periods because I have to take progesterone I have to take certain type of controls and I don't really yep. I'm so that's kind of really the main symptom I have is thought and and deal with like other certain things like the hair the hair the overgrown hair and then my hair on my head is actually sitting a little bit as they they get older which has been a little bit difficult so there's a lot of little P. C. O. S. things in in a lot of women. You know eighty five percent of women that deal with zero s are at least clinically diagnosed as obese. Although I think that that's a whole word that's been kind of manhandled by the medical community but yeah a lot of women's struggle with their weight with these lessons struggle with their diet because there's a lot of different factors I certainly I try to watch certain aspects of my diet but because of the eating disorder history like I don't I don't like to monitor like a huge barriers on my diet because when I got diagnosed it's certainly like did not help eating disorder at the time and yet doctors will scare the shit out at you if you get diagnosis. Pc us about like what will happen. What can happen with your weight or.

"Your first order from Jordache so enjoy guys and have a wonderful wonderful meal and now we can get back to the show? I think a lot of what I heard was this notion of control and I think oftentimes eating disorders start with someone attempting attempting to have control over something in their life of feeling like all these other things you know losing your friend totally out of your control being in college in a a new place and all these things happening around you and that food is the one thing that we feel like we have control over and then even the moving and whatnot that that's like that's your decision. You know this is an in your control kind of and yeah I think just kind of what you described it just feeling like you're mass and this total total loss of control that it's after you've I assume you felt it in some degree as a public figure of Lake of having pressuring getting compliments for how you are right and I were such a society based around physical complementing that when you I do lose weight or get more tone or this or that we have this like penchant for always complementing people for free and so I think you know I've written written about this quite a bit. I think that in itself is somewhat of a drug you know is is is like getting validated for weight loss and getting validated in its wild think a lot of people take it to far is because they're hearing from all these different people that it's good for you or that you look great or that. You you know when those compliments stop that can be painful yeah yeah. I'm wondering if you can share a little bit just now you do in your blog to buy just kind of what about experienced in treatment was like for you like what kinds of things you thought it was going to be like that. Maybe you were proved wrong or things that you think super helpful their yeah you know I think treatment is different than it's stigmatizing while I was at a big treatment center which I think has its has its ups and downs because the bigger the bigger bigger treatment center is the less one on one help. You're getting yeah and then also the more corporate gets which I have feelings about the Corporate Corporate Treatment Senator John Oliver Actually stop no good so good and I'm not even GONNA lie. I got a guest requests or inquiry from someone one who helps run one of the treatment centers like that and I was like yeah it's murky what I think that the day to day people are trying their best but when there's bigger investors and stuff like I thought that maybe seeing the big picture of what they're doing or they've lost sight of what the big picture as it can be very corporatized so at times I felt like and I'm not GonNa say Treatments in Arizona because they did help me. I was ready for help and you have to be ready in order to get anything out of it but I did at times feel like I was heard it around like a cattle like I felt like we you know I felt like it was hard sometimes to get that one on one direct help which is why I think it becomes a revolving door right turn and I remember it was the first time I was ever really understanding our system in America how it works and there were so many girls in older women and that was always there was it's interesting to me the age range and there was a girl as young as eleven in a woman as old as sixty something when I was in there and I remember thinking like Oh my God like I this is such such a powerful issue in this country if we have women and girls that are in here that are this age because mine was an all female facility so I can't really speak to the male part of it because I know that there's definitely a lot of males with eating as well but but yes oh you know I I got a lot out of it. I was also disappointed in the in in a way because a lot of these women had been in and out of treatment for years they had spent a majority of their like adolescents in and out of treatment centers because is there insurance companies. were either a yanking 'em after a few days in their parents couldn't afford excuse treatments outrageously expensive his country and it's like how how do you know it's such a profiteering racket which really upset egg in a Lotta ways now. Did you find that that was any difference and that you're able to receive more personalized care when when you went to outpatient and Texas yeah it was smaller but I don't know if that was just a fluke. I don't know if it was just because there aren't as many women in at that time time yeah but outpatient was it was a little bit more personalized because there was only about ten to twelve people were as residential. There's like forty and there's only two or three the staff members at a time. They're able to kind of watch so you know there's a lot of like it's kind of like jail. Ri- In a Lotta ways of I always say it was like like my experience felt like orange is the new black of treatment centers of because there's a lot of it was like a lot of lake interesting politics all of it head at the women that had been there the longest this kind of had a at a at ways of getting around. There's a lot of interesting things that needed there needed to be more people. They're monitoring yeah so much monitoring of because it was too big it was too little staff and that was something that I feel like happens. Jails all the time as well well Murray veto incarceration and stuff like that so it was an interesting experience and I am thankful for it everyday and it's also it has a Lotta interesting little edges the definitely I mean you learn a lot not only recovery wise but a lot about the state of our systems and our country and a a whole bunch of stuff. It sounds like all right. It's time for a short break here. I WANNA share sponsor that I've already shared with you before but I am just honestly really really really loving. I'm the product and so I'm going to go on and again also just because I feel like it is important because there are a lot of different things out there when it comes to CD and confusion has been really really great for me and is unique in that they aren't just offering cbd so you get hemp fusion is CBD it mixed with other natural ingredients to kind of best suit your.

"Edu Slash Slash Taylor and now we can get back to the show. I'm wondering if we can kind of back up a little bit here and if you could share a little bit about your story okay with eating with your eating disorders and kind of how how that came about and I know you've you've talked about going to Rehab if you could just tell us a little bit more about them. Absolutely you know I'm always the firm believer that it's not you know I try to keep this story shorter and the recovery piece of it a little bit longer just because I do feel like ultimately at the end of the day eating disorders are so prevalent especially in the United States and all English speaking countries. They're so prevalent prevalent. Everyone has their story in a lot of sound quite alike because the culture that we're in impre the media is a Cetera all these other outlying factors but Um. I always say my stories about like everyone else's I was sixteen when when bolting disorder of course nobody goes into any sort of thinking it's going to be disorder. Yeah we go into with the ridiculous Diet Culture Talk of I'M GOING TO LOSE X. Amount of pounds or I'm trying to get fit or get healthier all the little kids she catch phrases that we use them the this the society added Beach Pot all of that right and so it started off innocently enough as it always does and throughout high school I would say it was manageable. It was just really starting to get more. You know it all builds on itself. I call it the cycle it seems being sort of cycle and you don't even know that you're entering that and I was starting to notice calories just starting to become aware things eat this. Not that was a book that was really popular in two thousand seven. I remember that our house totally right everyone did it was like that picture illustrated this Nisa that in a twitter was really big back then to eat this not that had a big twitter site at the time. I don't know if they do anymore but I I started you know religiously following that and it just became one thing after the other in so by the time I went to college I grew up in Dallas Texas and I would also always say I love my home. I'm actually in my home right now. I live in Colorado but I'm visiting my family this weekend and you know there was a lot of pressure for women growing up in in world that I grew up in we were kind of expected to be attractive and attractive looked a certain way and so I grew up my whole life if watching my mother and her friends be you know take they were very preoccupied with what if there's a lot of pressure as a kid to grow up and look the same way so when I went to college my best friend passed away my first month of college which of course it was the most tragic thing I've ever gone through the date and he died unexpectedly one night our first month and I just always look that is the turning point. I think things were manageable up until them but I think when you're starting to develop as negative coping skills and I was starting to restrict more workout more I found solace in that and so when he passed I just didn't I was so young. I didn't have any idea how to handle it and I couldn't handle it because you know we're always always say this really were allotted added like a month or two to grieve openly and then it's almost like we're expected to be over it rather. It's a break-up or a death or whatever we're we're expected to have like move forward and I did not move forward in a month or two months. He was like a brother demand and I still to this day. I still grieve him and I think I always will but at the time the only way I knew how to express that pain was to starve or to restrict or an sell started coming out in different ways so throughout the years from college from eighteen to twenty three and I always like to say this because I think there's a huge stigma around eating disorders in this culture that if you haven't he disorder you always look a certain way ask like if you're anorexic. You look one way to look one way and I. I never looked like that so I think that's why a lot of people didn't I didn't even really understand that. I had an eating disorder for five years. I knew something was wrong like you never you. You never know something's wrong but I didn't know how to ask for help because I was technically a healthy weight for a lot of that time and my weight fluctuated quite a bit from eighteen to twenty three because of course as I later learned Rehab. It's like yeah if you're starving yourself the binge eating purging and you're living in that cycle your body retains. You're just everybody does weird things to try to compensate for it and so by the time I was twenty three. I moved countries. Of course I had a lot of people think especially millennials deal with that I wanted to live at. I kept thinking my environment would change me so I kept so I kept moving and I moved overseas thinking like if I go to Europe. They're probably so different like I'll totally shut it because at that time I knew it was is an issue like I'm really it's all I could think about it was really starting to affect my daily life mentally and physically and so I moved to Europe thought that would change it of course it didn't it just made me lost control. I didn't know how to count calories over there so it just made me even more stringent about working out and so I kind of came back dejected after a year and moved to New York because of course it oh well New York's really liberal progressive like that'll that didn't at the by the time I was like twenty yeah twenty four. I was best I don't even like to all the symptoms settle like stigmatizing but I was is a really really big mess and and I came back and it was Thanksgiving and I had a wedding in Texas and finally my friends inserted intervening with my parents and they were like hey like she's not doing all like she's acting erratic with food and my roommate was my best friend from childhood so she called my parents was like worried about her. She's like hiding food and doing all this stuff stuff so my parents were noticing and this is the story I always tell. Is That my dad. My Dad noticed how much food we had the pantry and we went to a wedding thing that all three of us were invited to and I had been j two boxes of cereal prior to going and my dad had fish those out of the trash when they got home because Z. noticed they were gone and he had them waiting on the coffee table. When I got back from the wedding I'd like to in the morning and of course that was trashed because I always thought alcohol was going to help nope? He'll like alcohol was going to help me from bike eating and so I I came home and I remember that was kind of the end of it. So after that I went to residential treatment I was in Florida for six weeks. I was an outpatient Dallas Texas and that's kind of where my blog all started for the I haven't shaved in six weeks. which is that I got how and I really you know I couldn't find anything on Rehab when I was looking for? I couldn't find any like firsthand account right of like what the day to day life was going to be. It's it's really scary when you're going to treatment. You have no idea like who's going to be in their sued going to be like like what do we do every day like am. I going to be in a straitjacket like I didn't understand what it was going to be like. I really really like all I could find was like clinical blog posts and stuff like that so I got out and I was like you know I was already in writing and that's always been my passion and so it was like okay. I'm GONNA give a firsthand account and that's where the blogs started at a it's. I haven't shaved in sixty dot com because I thought I could bring a razor. I didn't know that but of course it makes of course it makes sense now to not have razors around a treatment center at at the time when they took my raiser. I wasn't allowed to shave for six weeks of cyber thinking. You know what that's something that people might want to know if they're going to. They're so that's where it started. It's kind out of a overview of my storing yeah all right so it's time for a short little break here with a wonderful sponsor that I I really want you guys to listen to because you will want to take advantage of this. I absolutely love eating and I think we all do and honestly Lee. Sometimes I go through my day. literally just two days ago was working and realized I had an eight and I was like oh my gosh. I didn't even put time in my day today. It should be able to eat and wouldn't it be nice if like our parents still actually pack their lunches as meal planning is for but sometimes you lose sight of that so I want to help connect you guys would door dash that helps connect you to your favorite restaurants in your city.

"Hello and welcome to let's talk about it. This is tailor your host and today we will be getting into no a woman named Lindsey Hall who has a blog and she writes about her recovery with eating disorders she also speaks out about peace Yo S. and also just very very vulnerable on her instagram Ashland's equal rights and shares about not only her eating disorder recovery bite right about relationships and about life overall in general so I'm really excited to chat with her and share her story with you guys and just kind further this conversation around mental health and eating disorders and we'll definitely get into some body image stuff as well so I'm very much looking forward to this conversation and WanNa give a warm welcome to Lindsey. Thank you so much for chatting with me today. Thank you for having me really happy to be here. Yeah I I am. I'm really excited because there's several parts of your life that you've been really honest and vulnerable about that we have never discussed on the podcast before things like p. C. O. S. and you've also just been super open about your relationships on on your blog and on social media so I just wanted to say like thank thank you for having that transparency and helping kind of start some of those conversation conversations with the people that follow you because it takes a lot of courage to be open open like that and you're like very how do I describe this like. It's very you're very raw in such a beautiful transparence honest way that I think is really refreshing and different from what I've seen a lot of other people. Do I appreciate that yeah you know it always comes uh-huh at that some ups and downs anything does I don't know how else to be but to share my experience in in that way but it certainly hasn't the noise been easy for my relationship. I always like to say that because you know it seems sometimes as though I've like honed some way of being able to talk about things where it doesn't ever come back can bite me in the ass but as you know we'd be on television or anything like that. You never know how your words are going to be taken by somebody else yeah well. It is interesting that you bring that up because they think you know oftentimes when we are being really raw and vulnerable and sharing parts of our lives with people on social social media in some kind of a public way that you know whether we like it or not the oftentimes usually someone else is involved in that you know like if I share that my partner and I are in couples therapy be like his mom is finding out from members of her book club that her son couples there may not is totally the same kind of stuff. I deal with too. It's like yeah you know even down to. I've been writing a lot. I was gauged. I was engaged. A couple months ago in that engagement did not work out so I've I've been writing quite a bit about that. That's still something that I'm processing that has it's only been three or four months since it ended and I am with somebody else actually updating my roommate bait. LL AT and I've been very open about like going through this breakup and talking to my ex quite a bit and seeing him just because well you know. I don't think relationship saying just because we say it's over you know there's a lot of there's a lot of unpacking to do there and a lot of growth that can be done when when both parties are willing to the self aware enough to own some of the things that they brought into the relationship that might not have been the most helpful and but but even the yet it's like it's harder because I'll write about my ex than you know my new partner his sister follows me on instagram and boys like I wonder what she feels about that. Yeah it always everything comes to the consequence but I also feel like it's the most freeing thing that I have to write that way so totally yeah yeah and it's you know for me. I look at it. I was like this is my truth and this is my platform to share my truth and I have to be honest with myself about that and certainly understanding that it will impact other people and you know taking accountability and taking responsibility for out of course but at the same time not silencing yourself or making yourself smaller or or denying your truth in any way to make people feel more comfortable I think that's a struggle that a lot of people can relate to and wanting to be open and honest with with their story in our life and I think what you described even just about the way kind of of moving through relationships is such a beautiful awful way to view it and I think I feel like I can relate in some ways. I always try my best. It doesn't work out with every relationship but at least with that kind of gratitude and even I mean your post like you. You did a specific post that was kind of about your break-up from your engagement went and even just like reading through all of that. I was like Oh my God like this is like so real and I was like in it with you and it also just felt felt like there wasn't this. I don't know it. I think we have a it's kind of the same thing is the the approach that I've taken with the eating disorder as well is that there's there's beautiful parts of it to to take from the whole experience as much as there is the regret resentful the fullness and I just feel like every experience or something it'd be taken from at that you can learn from and so when I write about my ex's it's any and of course course I'd be lying in completely full of Shit if I was saying that I'm just really willing to put everything out there on the table because it's not fair to him or her dating at the the time to do that. It's not my story is to tell there's and and and so it's always kind of cherry picking the little lessons the beach thing which is what I feel like I'm also trying to do with even when it comes to talking about the eating disorder and whatnot this wall because people have a tendency to really put everything into black and white right like we put oh yeah trips in black and white we put her we put our recovery stories into black and white and I don't think that everything is about I think everything has a bit of grey to assume Komo destroyed totally. It's I kind of look at the black and white as these two boxes that we're always trying to fit things into like a category glory to try to make sense of it so that we feel more comfortable with the things that are uncomfortable and in reality like our boxes gotta look a whole lot different and then just black or white because there's there's so much mess and beauty and all the things in between and all that gray so I think I think it's hard to take ownership for parts of our life that we may be don't feel the most proud of rate because it's it's a it's embarrassing when an engagement ends like it wasn't it wasn't easy for me. It was embarrassing for knowing that I mean I still even now. It hasn't been that long so I if I haven't seen somebody in a long time. I went to a wedding again. My old colleague was there and she asked but my engagement how it was going. I was like that's not happening yeah so there's still a kind of shape aim or on some of those topics like an engagement doesn't work or if you go to Rehab for something and I I I'm able to compare the two quite easily in my head because he had to work through owning both of those stories now this. I'm thankful that I was able to own some of the eating disorder stuff I so because it's made me be able to have a lot more self-awareness ownership over the other parts of my life that may happen not necessarily that proud of yeah totally all right. It's time for a short break and I want want to share a new sponsor of the pod that I'm excited to share with all of the and you know we've talked about education before on the podcast and you as I have my master's I agree and I wanNA share Ashford University. you can actually get your masters degree there. It's super convenient and flexible the program allows you to learn at your own pace and you can study rever. You're the most comfortable learning for me and my graduate degree. It was my couch. That was where I studied with my foster cats. What's but it's a really awesome university?.

We still have something coming out so she you guys happy so just throwing it out there putting out a lot of stuff it. It's wild this is this experiment has expanded what it's been thirteen years since the first insanity check not only man. Maybe I think like eleven maybe twelve sense instead of I and sandy check in. I I've lost track. I think it was things eleven year this this year's yeah early in May was eleven. I think we started doesn't eight so it was it's been eleven Lebanon eleven and a half years for sanity check and then I would say that movie trailer reviews officially. It's been five or six years for us officially. I know we changed the name officially in twenty fourteen but I coulda sworn we were probably probably doing reviews either twenty twelve twenty thirteen so now have a giant asked where everybody with come to trailer views about do that then the show but yeah man it's it's been a lot man is it's been a lot and it's been interesting again seeing we're. We're like I'm sitting at tiff gone. I'm at tiff. How the fuck did I get here you know and it's been a great privilege against all because because of everybody who's a fan who's helped us out and who has listened and everybody who all the contributors who help on the on the site basically for free I mean we we pay equipment and if they need something I try to my heart is to get it? Get it for him but we are we are completely independent dependent and it's. We are a bunch of fans who run a site. That's not a fan site so but it's it's a professional media outlet run by fans you know and I think that's a different different between that in a fan site because we're constantly expanding ending. We're constantly changing things around in growing and it interesting see that is interesting. When I go to Tiffany online I'm hearing the season critics talk and complain about things and I'm just sitting there smiling going like I'm just happy to be here? You know like it's so funny scene the way some people like there was one guy who was I'll tell you a little bit because I'm saving it for the the tiff recap because I do have rant about how they do. The red carpet and it's not a shot at the people who rent they are very very professional volunteers that people that work there. I've never been treated as well as I have as press us as I have been by the people you know so I think because they're professional but the way they do red carpet is they basically have a set of spots in these different theaters acting in one of the theaters they they were doing red carpets that they have up to fifty spots and so and I know once you get past the first ten maybe fifteen spots the chances. Are you interviewing everybody. Dwindles did because especially it was a large cash and there's so many people even they have an hour. You're not going to get everybody so the number thirty one and it was where the knives out interview NYPD outright carpet and if you know that movie you know there's a ton of people so in the back of my mind I'm going. I'M NOT DOC interview. Chris Evans is not going to happen and I didn't because I knew wasn't going to. I knew he gonNA show up by one of the last people and it wasn't getting around that other people right now. There's there's other outlet was further align in Iowa they were like in the forties and this dude was complaining to the media rap and in all of the stuff like my outlive pays for me to be out here pays for me to get this content and Blah Blah Blah Blah and the Beckham. I WanNa go a buddy buddy. Hey you ain't fucking special. Just get get take your fucking number ten the fuck an ally let the rest of us and hope you get what you can fucking get like you over here complaining to the Rep Ankara help you one fucking bit because one they don't control where where you fall on the end of that line. You know that wasn't up to them. I'm into you ain't nobody fucking special like my outlet pays for me to be here. All right cool within your outlook also know how red carpets work was means. You're probably going to get everybody on the red carpet. You're not and you definitely ain't GonNa be up with the front with the big outlets so I don't know what the tell you buddy but calm the fuck down and crame over here with the rest of us and shut the fuck up like it's is just so funny to me to see people get these attitudes about all well I does. I do know who I am. No No. I don't know who you are. You're nobody I just a minute. You have to go into your bag and say. Do you know who I am. You've already lost yeah yeah. You're you've already proven that no they don't know who you are and Ed that means. You're not important enough so he'll be fucking having your there. I was happy with my and I don't know how the quality looks. I don't know if you'RE GONNA get up from that. One question I got into Daniel Craig Egg. I did get a got a couple two or three into Ryan Johnston director. I dig it deeming Lakers for a little bit so I think I got a great answer from from resume for his movie sound metal so like I'm. I'm like hey do what you can and I'm like. Hey if you were that big in your in your studios that big to pay you to come out here. You know what they would have done. They were retouched to begin with and got you one on one interview if you're sitting on that red carpet with us at the end of the line with the rest of us that means you ain't big enough to have have that clout to do that. So you gotta be you. You gotTA suffer for the rest of us on that red carpet line yeah just saying just saying what it is calm. Calm the fuck down so but you talk about all that with with joy on the recasting me fun like I said Uh I opening experience. I'm definitely go longer next year. Plan things a little bit better but I really enjoy my first one. I think I've got enough covers a whole. Make sure we're covered to go back next year so it was great so anyway but that's not what we're here for. We're here for the check. Talk about someone who can say any thing crazy things that have happened in the last couple weeks since I've been gone and I'm GonNa long lead would think is the most heartbreaking and serious gary story here and it's that the right after department I recorded lascaux in plotted getting the chicken can sandwich the chicken sandwiches which I don't want to say it's conspiracy that against deaprtment of myself but I do find it very the timing very very suspicious that the media we we were trying to plan. We're GONNA get a sandwich. They are probably came out and told us that six weeks for spicy which is other people pointed out is the most popular thing ever but yeah yeah man. I'm Kinda salty about that kind. It's all things they brought it back. Have you heard so. Let me tell you if I catch any of you. Mother fuckers walk into a Goddamn Popeye's two pieces. This is a bread to build your own which Nicholas I'm here I when I first saw this I thought it was onion joke and this is why this is why I feel comfortable not doing the check every week anymore. Because I feel like every day is a new day where we're like. Oh that's UNIN headline and Oh wait knows a real headline so I no longer have to do the show because it's like we're living day to day motherfuckers. No no we are not building our own chicken sandwiches in Popeye's. What can you but you know? Someone's done it right of course because all they're doing is giving you a box three tenders the thing that makes me mad about it. It's not even the chicken sandwich. They're not even giving the chicken. It's like so first of all principal. This is brilliant on Popeye's point point of view. This is brilliant from the Popeye standpoint like this some of the going you'll we're outta. Chicken sandwiches were out the buns and what are we going to fucking do give them the chicken tenders and just tell them to bring their own bun. Come on man. That's that's really going. There's no one's GonNa do is watch him. They'll do it and they did. I'm sure someone has done the matthew like you know I can get a full loaf of bread. Pickles is going tender. I can make these sandwiches dog even even fish fries at the church. Give you your own bread. Give you the one slice of white flimsy white bread giving that they give you that that comes with it it packet of hot sauce while we were to get the sandwiches back in our restaurant we wanted to offer are a fun way fun way fun fun way to satisfy their Popeye's chicken Popeye Sandwich craving said Bruno Carnell who sounds like a member of like some kind of Mafia Popeye's head of marketing in the new in North American statement to CNN. They're not they're not even trying. Here's the thing are they even give me the sauce or they just giving you are. They just think I think if you dumb motherfucker to go in here and I'm going to say I like I think I saw the don't they have on the box like B. O. B. B. Y. B. Y. O. B. I'm fairly certain that that is something that they would have done. Yes I swear to God like they're literally. Just I know what you know. What though you know the I applaud Popeye's for this? I hope they mark it up. I hope would would they do in the when you say you A. B. Y. O. B. Chicken Sandwich that they go into like a get right on it chief and they go and they get you a regular three piece chicken tender meal. They mark it up with no sauce and then give it to humor like there you go buddy because here's my thing when you bring your own Bun me you give me the tickets but first of all I want. I want the actual chicken that goes on the chicken sandwich. I don't what the fucking chicken tenders I remember when this first happened when they when they were first selling the sandwiches and somebody got mad because they weren't given the direction the gone to it ran out of chickens before the actual were countrywide around chicken and that Popeye's gave them three chicken tenders Anders on a budget and they were pissed as they should be because it's not the chicken from the chicken sandwich so first of all the not giving you the chicken from the chicken sandwich then but then they're not even giving you like the sauce or the pickle which makes the chicken sandwich.
