"You just were not doing well. No. And there's a song by Mary Mary, the title escapes him now, but it talks about, you know, you see the money, you see the clothes, the cars, and all this, but you don't see me on my knees in my closet, praying. And that's the life that was happening. You know? Yeah. They saw the cars. They saw the trips. They saw the fun Sonya and they saw, you know, the clothes and everything, but they had no idea what was happening behind closed doors and how much I cried. How many moments in my life? For a long, long time. I cried and stayed in my prayer closet. Hours, and said to myself, how do you, how do you have so much going on around you? You have a three kids, you have a job, you have a school. You have teachers. You have Friends, galore. You have, you know, my husband. You have all this stuff going on. And everybody's looking at that and you still feel so alone. That's where I was. It was just emptiness because all of those things were feeding my flesh, you know, the partying and all that socializing was feeding my flesh, my kids were occupying myself, giving me something in my school giving me something to do. And, you know, my husband at the time was the companionship, but there was just, you know, all those things that can be around you, but if you aren't full within yourself, you can't even really absorb that and appreciate it or utilize it the way that it should be. And without a lack of a better word, even value all of that, right? Because you're just empty. And, you know, that's what the relationship with Jesus gave me. It started giving me that fulfillment of knowing who I was. Who I was in him and then things just started looking different. And I got a different kind of power. I got a different kind of confidence and it changed everything. Yeah, it's a really confusing place to be to have everything you think that you want and still not be happy. We're broadly speaking, not taught about what to do when that happens, because again, for a lot of people, you never get everything you want. You're in the continual chase. And if we're not careful, even when we get a lot of the things we want, my experience has been, you just move the goalpost. Like, well, okay, that's really great. But if, you know, it's the next thing. You describe kind of what happened after that going to church on that Wednesday and having a moment where you decided to surrender. And I'm just going to read it because I think it speaks so well to what living a spiritual life often just looks like. And you said, I've committed to my walk with God. I've changed my life. I pray I actively work towards seeing the good in every situation. I try not to act irrationally when it comes to big decisions without careful thought and prayer. I see each day as part of a spiritual process. I look at every 24 hours as a piece of all the whole, a chapter in the holy book of life. I end each day after my kids have gone to bed with a final reflection, a survey of the previous 24 hours. I mean, there's just so many really great practices in there. That's the part where I write it and I was like, what, you described when I'm doing that? I tend to be a pretty content person. Yes. And for me, what I've just learned in the last two years is all of our lives are made up of chapters. For this chapters, this chapters this chapter, whether that chapter is a day or whether that chapter is a month, whether that chapter is a year, whether that chapter is 5 years, getting through children, getting whatever it is, and then retiring all of us have a book in us. That is made up of these chapters of in our lives. And, you know, for me, it slows me down to do those things and evaluate because then what tends to happen when I don't do that. These things just snowball and snowball and the snowball. And then I'm looking up and I'm going, how did I get here? You know, in scripture, tells you, you just don't wake up one day and you're a sinner, you know, we're born broken that way, and then every day we're making decisions every day that lead up to something more catastrophic or drastic in our lives. And so trying to just keep inventory along the way for me just helped me manage my life. Yeah. Yeah, I'm a recovering alcoholic and addict, and I got sober in a 12 step program. And in the 12 step program, there's 12 steps, obviously. And steps four through 9 are kind of about cleaning up the mess that you've created up to. So there's a lot of work to be done because for most of us, we've made a lot of mess at that point. But then step ten is what you're describing. It's the step where it reads, continued to take personal inventory and went wrong promptly admitted it. It just meant that we tried now to stay on top of it. So we didn't have a big mess to clean up again later. Exactly. You know, it's like, all right, it's a whole lot easier if you clean up your little messes as they go. Because then you don't walk into a house cleaning metaphor, you don't walk into the kitchen one day, and it looks like a bomb went off in there, right? You're like, okay, you know, yeah, I gotta wipe down the counter. Okay, I can handle that. Absolutely. And you just don't walk in and just sit down and I don't even know where to start. Exactly. And then you just take everything, it's throwing out and you're just kind of like irrational about that as well. So every day, just helps keep your hands on it.

Our guest on this episode is Sonya curry and entrepreneur educator and founder of the Christian montessori school of Lake Norman in North Carolina, as well as the co host of the raising fame podcast. She is the mother of Stephen and Seth curry and Citadel curry Lee, and often speaks about her experiences as a mother, educator, and Christian, sharing testimony about her faith and parenting and education. Today, Sonia and Eric discuss her book, fierce love, a memoir of family, faith, and purpose. Hi, Sonia. Welcome to the show. Well, thank you Eric for having me and giving me the opportunity to come on and talk about the book and I look forward to just spending time with you this morning. Yes, me too. We're going to be discussing your book which is called fierce love, a memoir of family faith and purpose, but before we do that, let's start like we always do with a parable. And the parable there is a grandparent who's talking with their grandchild, and they say, in life, there are two wolves inside of us that are always at battle. One is a good wolf, which represents things like kindness, and bravery and love. And the other is a bad wolf, which represents things like greed and hatred and fear. And the grandchild stops and thinks about it for a second and looks up and says, well, which one wins? And the grandparent says the one you feed. So I'd like to start off by asking you what that parable means to you in your life and the work that you do. Wow, it's such a beautiful parable and I was actually listening this morning to pastor Rick. And one of his devotions this morning was about cultivating a healthy life and relationships and one of the things that he highlighted this morning was the fact that what we feed our brain is very, very important that, you know, science used to say that our brains are fully developed by I think age 12 as an adolescent, but a scripture tells us to conform no longer to the ways of the world, but be transformed in our mind. And so he reminded me that every day, the words that I say to myself, the things that I read, the music that I've listened to, the Friends and the people that are surround myself with, to be very careful about words and when the negative words come up or I'm exposed to to cast them aside and replace them with positive words and as the Bible says with the truth because a lot of the negative are really just lives. And we need to know what God says about us, who we are, and why we're here and what we're supposed to do, what's our purpose. And so I needed that reminder this morning. You know, and now I'm getting it twice, so I'm just gonna wait for the third confirmation at some point during this day about feeding my mind, feeding my mind through scripture which will then feed my spirit and that it's a process, Eric is a process that is not going to happen overnight. It's not something that, okay, I'm just going to be a happy person, or I'm just going to make the best choices. You can't. You have to develop the habit of wanting to make good choices. That's what I do. That's what I try to do in my life every day with staying close to the word, having great people in my life to be sound counsel for me and then even when I ran my school that still exists that is still operating, you know, letting children know that it is all about them, that they are empowered to create the life that they would like to have and that God has put them on this earth to fulfill. So it's a habit. It's up every day practice of creating the habit of making good choices. I love that. That's a beautiful answer. You know, I am struck by how different you and I's potential spiritual beliefs are. But with anybody who's deeply committed to a spiritual life, what I find is so much commonality. It feels like on the surface, there can be a lot of differences, but at a deeper level, the ways in which we're trying to really hear a voice that's deeper and more true and more beautiful and live according to that is very, very similar. As I was reading your book, I was just struck over and over and over again by really the depth of your commitment. So really trying to live a certain way. And really it being about you living that way. Really being about you stepping up and saying, all right, here's the person I want to be. And here's the reasons why. There was a lot of highlights I did where I was like, that just sounds like if you took away a couple words, it would sound like something that could be in many different faith traditions. Absolutely. I think that's the point. And I think the spirit is in us for those of us who ask for it. And for those of us who truly want to live by it, there's one thing of it being in you, but another to really try and let it lead and be the navigation for your life on a day to today basis. And so, you know, all we can do is, Eric, I just try to get up every day and I just try to remind myself who I am, who I belong to and what I'm supposed to be doing. And then I try to just make the best decisions that I can. And then I try to give myself a lot of grace because, you know, I came out of a childhood, a young adulthood of just religion and going to church and not really having a relationship with God, like God, just being somebody up in the clouds, and here's this book of instruction and you know, I'm going to be condemned to
Actor Nick Searcy Joins Dinesh to Talk About His Latest Film
"Guys, I'm happy to welcome back to the podcast award winning actor and producer Nick sir C you know him for his role in best picture winner, the shape of water. He's been in the Oscar nominated Moneyball and castaway and fried green tomatoes and runaway jury. He's also the course played the costarring role on the hit TV series, the FX series called justified, and he teamed up with filmmaker Chris burgard to make a terrific film about January 6th called capital punishment. We're gonna talk about that. Hey Nick, welcome to the podcast. Thanks for coming on. You are just telling me that you have your in a film that daily wire has just released. It's a western tell us about that one. Yeah, it's a western called terror on the Prairie, and I play the title role. I'm the terror. And that's kind of why I still look like Gabby Hayes a little bit. It's a real real throwback western and just a terrific experience, a great people with Gina Carano and Dallas Sonya and the daily wire people. It was great to make a movie with the where for once I wasn't outnumbered being a conservative on the set. And I know you're saying that the kind of old style western that we thought was extinct that Hollywood won't go near anymore. It's been revived in a kind of a new form. Tell us a little bit about how does this compare to the classic westerns with Gregory Peck and Clint Eastwood and so on. Well, it's really more of a throwback to the peckinpah westerns of the 70s. It's a little bit more like wild bunch than it is like the searchers because it's pretty bloody. There's quite a few crimes, let's say, in the movie and it's unflinching. And so I would say it's probably an R rated for violence type of

"I will tell you right now. I did not have that shirt i. It's a shirt it's sewn together but the sleeves and the bottom are not hemmed. We'll show it on instagram. When this episode nitz don't rambles freight. So you don't have to if you don't want so my i'll tell my mom's craft fail story Which is relatable to this about the knits and sewing machines and sewing it right when my parents were first married. My mom's sold my dad like a suit or something like that and he was. T- teacher is teaching the class and it started falling apart on him. Because i'm pretty sure it was because it was a it was born like knit and may may me my mom. I'll have to ask her like mom. Did you like try to like just pull that shit right out sewing machine. Is that what happened. 'cause i was always like when i learned i was a mom that was probably because zurture but now i know we heard it from the. I'll share my fail which is serve similar. It's kinda apparent child thing I was might. My kids were younger. And my oldest son went to a school and there is another parent there who was like you know. She was a talented seamstress in she would make her daughters. These birthday dresses such durable tradition. I wanna do that for my daughter. I think she was once they to at the time and i tried to make it just being up the pattern. I think i. I copied address of hers or something and i mean it i put it on her head tested out and i couldn't take back off of her head and i off of the two year old to she must have loved that does like do i hurt you. Get a consulta. Yeah so that. I saw no garment sewing. Don't stick stick to sweaters. Well alive one need to talk about a sort of cra- fail i had recently was sewing. I'm not going to bore our audience with them hearing it again. Basically i decided to do. French seems in address and didn't account for the fact that that does take away some of the sizing so now i just have to lose weight or redo the dress. I have a choice. i have a choice. Franch seems it is yeah. It does shrink step down. I mean one thing you could undo one of the you could undo one of the stitch lines and then if you wanted you could do a kind of they call hong kong finishing a where. You're where you're closing the seems in In bias day that would be because basically then you would gain if you take off on either side and dana half inch so or you could not put a candle in so i don't know it sits. Yeah i mean the do. They look gorgeous. They look really clean. So i'm kind of like ambivalent about going there. But my other thing is and i have found as a seamstress my big and i always forget and then i remember. I know how to fix this. But for the longest time i was just like rip my hair out. Walk away from the machine. And maybe when i come back tomorrow it'll behave better but when you all of a sudden are sowing along and you're like you hear that you hear the noise and what's happening and then you lift the bottom of your fabric up to find this crazy hair ball of thread. All that's the worst. It is the worst and in my experience with my machine. Ultimately it's seam ripper is my best friend. Rip it all out and really what i ended up doing. And i've told other people on forums that i'm on is rewind your bobbin for some reason and the the tension within the wind or whatever is is making it finicky. You're better off. Starting over with that bob and nice and fresh you agree. I definitely agree. I have actually a whole page in the book. Dedicated to all of those troubleshooting because tension is something that we all go through. And i loved it you described. Is that noise. Because i hear it even you. Even let's like in my head and yes and sometimes it's even just a straight piece of thread in the bob in case can do that that it's just it's so finicky But yeah a lot. We don't think about it. But it a lot of times and with me what i would always do was like detentions off. I would mess with giles. No heart you hardly ever ever have to mess with the dials. It's almost always something to do with the threat. It's sometimes it can be with the needle that if it's the first time you're showing with that particular fabric. It might be that the needle is dull. Or the needle is wrong. the wrong needle or whatever week aber but at monitoring Thread has a shelf life to that. It really get brittle if it's old. So high of vintage notions like love me vintage neuro machine or anything threat. Don't you still use into threat. It's like a durable and there wouldn't schools that just like have it as a decoration. John don't try sewing river to hacker it. A not useful got an even knew even blue sewing. Shink that once you get like into like when it gets towards the end because it's held intention it's been spun on that it can get all crimped and that can be enough for it to just like everything off as well so thread. I know i so as we were talking. I did mention my personal favorite sewing ride or die supply which is my seam ripper. I have like seven of them. So my question to you is what is your writer die craft supply and it doesn't have to be exclusive to sewing. Well i am very good friends with my seamer too. And i have several of the risk always seems to be that. There's there's. I've tried different kinds as well. But yeah there's there's One that came with machine just seems to be like the sharpest in the best. But i do i do also have to say i love a good a rotary cutter. I use like a small thing. It's like the six millimeter. Rotary cutter shuts almost like almost the size of quarter the blade and for fabric but also for paper to like cut. My i'll out patterns out without just you know now it's great. It's ruined me for sisters. O so i feel like i feel like the seam ripper is the soloists commands e is very dirty. Commit generally do something in real life and like wanna command it and realize that like that's just not how it works outside all of the time do this seam ripper. And if he didn't keep undone something realize like oh. I didn't have to do that then. I wanted to end the Whatever like.

"To make them. But then i am all about telling people as many different ways to do something because i feel like we all learn in different a different learning styles and so that fair in the book and there are modifications just as from sit adjustments and then different ways of adding embellishing surreally. It's those four patterns. Hadn't done the math. But the ideas you can change them and ask them put them together lengthen shorten widen into all these things. Then you make 'em into all kinds of things really. It's all just like the chew sharon adventure books of my childhood in selling form. Ooh that sounds awesome. Does sound awesome. So you touched on this a little bit in the beginning. But what would you say to someone who wants to start sewing clothes. But they feel overwhelmed about the process to even start on Question because it really easy to the overwhelmed. I would say that. I'm a big believer in instead of just sitting there and like oh just so mines or oh learn how to cut straight that you learn by doing. And that's what makes it. Exciting is when you have something at the end that you can hold up. What yes this. And have that pride in achievement. And i would suggest to find a simple pattern and use woven hamrick woven fabric is easier to to so even though we all like t shirts nets netzer tire just have a tiny bit more like just that stretch which makes comfortable makes it more difficult to work with and so simple pattern wound fabric and there are lots of tutorials. Youtube is your friend. There's the o class platforms are out there and war. Things are opening back up again. It's like yeah take up. He can person class at your local fabric store or they're so in guilds and other things like that and because sometimes it won't make sense but seeing someone else do it. I mean that has been one of the benefits of the pandemic resume classes. Make it possible that you can take a class whenever and then you. Have you know a a teacher there that you can ask all your questions show like. What is this match. Look like this but really a garment essentially is just four. Seems a ham Yes there's tricky staff that can happen at the neckline by it's you know. People have been covering their bodies since for millennia. Now and it's it's you. Can you can do it just with really two pieces of fabric together if you really want like a poncho or something front And then you can move on from there start simple and then build it from there because a lot of it is just getting used to for the terminology. Like what do they mean when they're saying like put rights together. What am sometimes you have to actually do things and makers mistakes before you get why. They're saying what they're saying and then also the sewing machine is. It's there's a lot of things going on and you know you're using your hands. You like working the pedal with your funds like is it going too fast. So getting used to that is is a hoping on. its own. but as i said it's a it's an interactive process. The more you do it then you'll start feeding confidence and build that skill so now i have a surprise Surprise for you at the three of us are going to have to ask you specific questions problems that we all have with sewing. I will go i li. I know you're gonna ask her about the thing that you've talked the show a few times address princess. No i'll go first. I go i okay so my thing is and nobody talks about this. The fucking iron having depress everything every two seconds. Take it off the sewing sheet. Press like that is which. I'm just like fuck this shit. I do not wanna press this one more time. Turn it inside out and make a team make another press. Press line crease. How can i get over that that from you. Does he really. That's sometimes when teaching. It's like more irony yours like if really you're doing mostly bussing that elisa. I feel you completely end. You could thousand eight. That was totally. Knee may need to do this. But you don't have to you. Can you can so without crossing really. You've seem open. You always have the press. That fucking seem open preston open you can you can. But here's the caveat is stuck works better and lays better and bays better when you do passive i. You've made your case it's for the best of the garment. It's not to make your life miserable. It makes it easier to work with and some fabrics are easier. They're easier to press like that's another thing too it's that like working with loosely woven fabrics Some lennon's double 'cause it's like you can press it and pops back up again you is going on with you South when you just gestured jesse do you have a question for sonya. I mean we have a real pro here right now. It's great species on our show esker. It's freedom i feel. She actually already secretly answered my question which was about fabrics. Because i'm not impatient person. That's like i wanna make it. And i want it to be like the way i want it and i'm gonna be mad when it's not even though like i tell my students all the time with lettering and things like not to do that but there's a different different weird thing when it's close and when it's like you can just compare it to like something anywhere at any shop. It's like this weird different feeling. So i think just talking about starting with easier fabrics and not necessarily the fabrics that i want to be like comfy cozy in was actually very good advice for me because i have one tank top that i made with fabric. That was easy to so but he's like i don't love it because it's not like comfy jersey that i want however looking back at it through like this talk just gave them like but that was good that i'm learning that way and then i have one t shirt that i did with jersey in a class. That is not as good because it was only the second thing i ever made and i was making this jersey shirt is that just do you use a surger for that right because when it's nit that i was taught really 'cause it's the way that from what i understand. Why am i saying this. I am not the expert. We'd have an expert here. Let me answer that. I was taught that you it. When you're working with jersey you actually need to use the surger. Is that not true. Please enlighten us. So using a surger is tacna. Lay it that's where it shines with nets because it cuts and so's and and you don't have to be so. Usually the surgery was like back. It up a surger is a machine which binds the edges of fabric and has two needles in usually anywhere from three to four schools. And so you can use it with woven wtn's finish the edges but you can use it just to so jersey nets but you can so with irregular sign machine than the differences is the use and some sewing machines have like what they call fake over lock stitches but usually you can just put it like a tiny bit of zigzag And then that gives it an stretch because if you just charge do straight stitch. It's not going to stretch with your fabric and look for the trade will break pop. But it's my first thing that i it wasn't so much the wing with jersey. It was the hemming. Hemming was something that took me a long time to really get used to and a lot of that has to do with the fact that when you're sewing it and i always thought too it's like oh you need a walking and walking foot is a specialized attachment at cruisers us because if you think about so sewing machines have presser foot which presents down the feed dogs which are underneath and they're moving africa law and what a walking does is it is a foot which also acts like a second set of dogs and so you're moving average from both sack from from both talk and the bottom because that's a lot of times women's since stable and you're just pressing down you're not going to get that shift but with knits because it stretching that has to do with when you're showing it's so easy to just whole and bike stretch it out as you're sewing because you're used to selling woven fabric and so it's really almost like you like ginger hands hardly touched at all like you're just there to make sure things don't go flying off on one direction that you're and you're just like don't let things hang off like lifted up support that fabric and that will help you know guarding ancestrally those wavy edges machines..

"Well you know you. I am not what. The reason i sewed started sewing was because i couldn't find what i wanted in stores so going shopping was always this. You know almost like finding be the leftovers or the insight. Oh well mobile throw a couple things here or go to places like lane bryant and where everything would be stretchy that a gabbert or bell flea Like that here. Just like stevie nicks that will do euro if we along these things than it'll make you will trainer down Initially so that's what prompted me to start sewing and what started me. Making patterns was when i was selling my hundred dresses. I wasn't just trying them for myself. I was also making them for people that i knew. And so what. I was looking for was simple pattern in larger sizes and back then early two in two thousand twelve in two thousand thirteen. I couldn't find what i was looking for. And so like wall of just that. I should make it. And there's a lot that has changed since then and you know there's so many more pattern companies out there in the pattern companies and some of those pattern companies that were in existence in the mid shoot thousands and their sizes they were catering to now they are starting to their. You know their spin this change and consumer demand and so i think for me. It's been i ready. I i knew that was lacking and wanted to make sure that i had that already built in. And so i feel like i was already like locked loaded into having a a wide size sinus range and even with that i can extend war and reach more people by including other sizes or including a instructions on how to you make adjustments. That are needed. Because it's not so much one of the beauties in sewing is that even this really such thing as straight sizes. The person that like okay. You're all these measurements Not really or maybe this day of among but then you know like in two weeks like no now that now psych tearing a lot here now so it's not gonna work but There's that ability to modify which is really you know if you have those tools and if you have that knowledge of how did you know. Bus adjustment are shoulder. Adjustment or how to add things like okay. You could add side slits open things up a bit better it really a you. You have the ability to make those changes and in some hazards. It's easier than others awesome. So why is conscious consumption important to you. Oh wife sanchez. Consumption of fortuny. Well i don't think might fabric. Consumption is always conscious or sometimes like pretty. Only you can only do you can do. Yeah like seriously like if you're trying it's like almost like don't think of it. Were you know you have this. I then somebody's quickly looking for your flaws. Like oh no hypocrite like. I don't think we can only do we can do. It's definitely something. That is something. I've talked to people about As far as that idea of purity that we're always serve looking at like seven who is like. Oh yes they're they're they have. They're doing everything Even as far as buying fabric. So if you're buying fabric if you're if you are making your clothes because you want to step off the fast fashion you know like van wagoner carousel or whatever but then you're by fabric will wear that fabric made from and then when you started going for. The traceability of lot of fabric is imported. A lot fabric is made in china very few. There's like if you're willing to spend a lot of money fabric that has made in milt here but just as far as conscious consumption. You know. I think that since. I'm not shopping and buying clothes. Do you buy underwear. Wait i made like one pair of underwear. Click okay thanks. that's great. Don't really not not really my jam. making bras. I have a pattern. For but again i know myself. It's not my favorite kind of selling. Even though i do know people swear by it maybe one day but it's not right. Now by enclosed has really seeped into other parts of my life where i really am thinking about. Do i need this. What am i gonna do this. Can i get it secondhand. can i borrow it. And it's spike. Shopping isn't a pastime anymore. And i'm not looking at shopping to fill that need. I think a lot of it has to do with unhappiness of because it's fat whole thing before i would be unhappy with what was available for it was. It was nothing even now. Even though so many brands do have come a long way. Like whenever i say. That's like virginia slim's A long way baby but still it's like. Oh you know you go into a store and they're not gonna have plus sizes will be like. Oh yeah we have a sized on the website all right but yes. I know it's so easy to just order things in return them. But you know it's just different from william account is serving my needs that not really so that just knowing that i'm not going to have that disappointment on happiness is like oh i can't find this in my sauce when well no i can find my size because i can make it in my size. I do make what i want. And it's empowering and it's just taken that whole like unhappiness acquit like okay. I'm unhappy because i can't find address in my size so now i'm gonna buy ten trusses in maybe of find one that hits the and so i'm not involved in that would really like abusive relationship with retail. So it's it's like such weight. I love that. Let's take a quick break and we'll be right back. Craft hang.

"For having me thrilled to be here. And i mean i totally about cakes to back at zero calories. Amazing the typing at you. Know i think maybe that's that's like. Hey let's yes so let's talk about you and do a quick intro. Can you tell our craft reno's who you are. And what you do sure mining sonya fila and i will. I make clothes. I am a knitter and so her and also an author so brand new newly minted author. And i live in san francisco. I have a pattern company. Called one hundred acted storming which i started Almost ten years ago be ten years next year and i i learned how to so in middle school and was always frustrated by it. I learned how to knit Basically win seen by everyone. My age was learning how to knit stitch ambition early two thousands and that became like my craft surrogate of just like. I wanted to make things in. So i niche Everything you know. That sort of everyone gets christmas presents hats. Everyone gets scarves and then was always. You know around other multi crafted crap jewel people and they would save likely should so or early. Social media would see people selling things like. That's amazing that no. I can't do it and then in early. Two thousand twelve to class on basic pattern. Drafting with cow hatch and. Yeah we heard of her and and we've had other guests talk about cow on our show. She has a started. In launched or birth many a sore garments sewer is one of them and then just sort of hit the ground running and then decided to so one hundred dresses and documented the process annalong. The way started teaching classes released pattern. And then as i was learning more and as i wanted to expand my wardrobe than added patterns and then just wrote a book and released it this year. And that's where we're at. And i really selling has changed my life in making close and so i really am a bit of an evangelist. As far as china encouraged people to you know take that leap because it is scary thing. So machines are scary and they take takes time and space and we all don't have that you're definitely on this mission to convince people to so their own clothes. So what has that mission ben like. Will i think it's getting people over the fear. Firstly i sometimes come across a lot of people who they know how to make either quilters but they're real intimidation going something making banks that are two dimensional to three dimensional or that. Ms sit is also something which is just like in our heads. Oh people think that it needs to something needs to fit in and that's such a struggle that you know me. I'm all about loosening clothes and are forgiven. And so i feel that you make something and you're building that skill while you're making something then you can move on to the more tailored stuff because all of that. It's almost like you're trying to make to flay before even notice scrambling a and the other thing too is how it's it's that idea of when you're comparing what you make to what you buy in the store like well no. That's you know you have to just be okay with being a beginner. Be okay with like a big enough for seeing you make be like a little wonky you twisted but that's all right. Then make that next one or the other one. I'm not tell saying that. Everybody has to make one hundred something that it definitely is a pretty amazing way to learn so just doing things again in iraq awesome so tell us what it is about the art and act of making clothes in the slow fashioned format. That lights you up. i don't. it's funny because i'm in like i guess i'm in slow fashion but you know i'm i'm kind of a maybe Slow because at not doing things like really slow down you don't you don't make a hundred of something and then all your soft slow fashion but Why what's all relative ray. Because it is much slower than fast fashion. Yes yeah. I'll give you that subjective. What late snap generally fabric. You know bats. That wasn't always the that's the siren that just kept calling my name and lured me back that it was bat like pretty brinson colors From across the room. That even when i wasn't selling it didn't stop me from going. The fabric store. I wasn't buying as much as i do now but it would still be like maybe i could make something. This is a pre. So it's it's definitely a lifelong love. And the fact that now i can actually make something and create something practical using it is thrilling. Do you have any fabric sources that. You're like because. I know we go to a. I'm all across the us. I believe joanne's fabric is. You're you're probably most accessible. And new yorkers spoiled they have mood fabrics and then all of the fashion district. But you're in san francisco. And i'm sure you've traveled a lot. Are there any places that maybe people don't know about that. They should know about for fabric. Fabric you're right it's Well really being. Some of her knits as well as does a lubbock good. You know yarn and fabric store combination. That's like taking all your boxes and so tiger in denver is amazing store. Gather here on in. Cambridge is also another amazing store which i love both of them. I've taught at and they also have great classrooms. And so that. I think also wonderful. Just not only are they selling that. They're also interested in teaching in that whole education aspect stone mountain in daughter in berkeley and then a for keeping warm in oakland and they're both local to me i consider them my local stores and love them. Wow some prototypes everybody. Yeah i'm always looking for new sources. Just because i have a there always. I'm sure you're like this. When you see a pattern you have an idea of what kind of fabric you wanna marry with that pattern to make your. But i have seen a lot of times. The fabric comes. I love you what am i gonna do. Don't know so. I also miss hobby. They started off his oetzi store. There added japan and they're amazing just as far as all those fun sometimes crazy. Japanese import fabrics. I just bought some toast print fabric. I don't if you know. It's like photo realistic toast. I just i need to make some toast pants. I don't know why as you do. Yeah as you do you must wear those to the next cocktail party. And then when people go is that toast go yes toast. All right oh conversational prints for a reason. So i wanna know how has embracing inclusivity helped you grow your business and.
Where Does Derek Brunson Go From Here?
"Let's talk about dark brunson because he looked great. He dominates he submits darren till in the third round. He's now won five in a row. He's tear it up. And in the contextual sense. He has absolutely done enough to earn a title. Shot in fact. I will strongly argue. He is more deserving title. Shot than marvin vittori was when he got the title shot. Robert whitaker is next. Brunson could easily wait for a title shot. He could be a backup. He could be replacement fighter for that fight or he could go ahead and just take another fight. So where does derek brunson go from. Another dominant win. I'll be shocked if he's not at least slotted in as a reserve for the Sonya you would occur rematch when whenever that happens and it's not. It hasn't been book yet. We're all thinking early. Twenty twenty two. I'm sure brunson will be ready by then. I'm sure he's staying in shape. He's aware of the possibility. I know we said on another show recently. That fighters shouldn't take reserve opportunities. But i mean. I think they should if they're only if they're guaranteed show money and win money. It brunson gets that guarantee. I know that's not gonna happen. That's not how the ucf works. I think they might get their show money usually because they show up and they weigh in. So that's the minimum. You should also get your win money. I want that to be a policy in the usa going forward. And that's the case. Brunson one hundred percent. Be ready for that spot. He's he's definitely earned that for me. If he can wait. I wanna see him weight. This ideal situation that sonya and whitaker shah you're february the late and then And then we you know maybe brunson can get in there. I guess it would be may probably may or april which seems like a long time but if you can wait that long. That's how i would do it. I he deserves tell shot he should notify anyone else. Yeah i mean. I think he's absolutely unequivocally in the driver's seat for the next in line. Spot behind whittaker it's oughta sonya whitaker brunson then cannon air in my eyes and if i'm derek brunson like you said there's nothing more you need to do your next fight should be for the belt and you hope that robert whitaker doesn't beat israel ottesen it because then there's going to be a trilogy fight yada yada. Yada canadair needs brunson to solidify title. Shot brunson does not need cannon air to solidify his in my eyes for the sake of check the tapes and all that the ufc will probably make the fight between brunson and cannon air possibly put it on the same card is out of sonya whitaker. So that's why pick.
Will Brunson's Frustration Affect Him Against Till?
"Brunson's very consistent but with those consistencies. He has consistently had a problem with a striker. He can't take down. Brunson gets frustrated. I know it because it was the problem in my career. So i can see what other guys have it when they have the same problem. I can see it if brunson comes out in his game plan is to take you down and he fails to take you down. He gets frustrated and things unravel very quickly. If you go see also too great fights if you wanna go back right if you're betting on this fight to great ones to see before you form your opinion anderson silva vs derek brunson derek. Brunson beat anderson silva. He lost the decision. He won the fight one of those nights. But he's in there with a great striker anderson. Brunson was successfully getting down at least part of the time so he didn't get frustrated his plan that he came in there with work at least part of the time it was enough to march him forward through fifteen minutes. The decision is history. The opposite happened when brunson oughta sonya he knew the blueprint he knew very clearly. I must take a sonya down and so did the rest of us because it was on the heels of artists on your inventory were vittori did take him down held them. They're frustrated oughta sonya so brunson knows what he needs to do when he failed to sign. You got his hips away. Got under kept him back on the feet. Brunson got frustrated. So it's it's one of those deals because in many ways this is the same fight it is till a striker. And he's great at it and he's weird. He's a very awkward approach. He twists the hips. He keeps his hands down. He goes southpaw. he goes orthodox. He looks like he's gonna kick when he's punching. He looks like he's gonna punch when he kicks. He's awkward adds to effectiveness. Good news for brunson even though it's the first time he's fighting till it's not the first time he's fought that awkward style. Okay we are going to have a long fight. I don't close my eyes and invention away that brunson gets till out of there. I can see ways that till stops brunson. I can see where till hurts it. But they're unlikely you're going to have a long drawn out contest and brunson has always impressed me with his ability to compete the harder the rounds get the more he's gotta dig the more grind and grimy gets he seems to rise to. I think that's the kind of fight that he's going to have picking
Darren Till's Record Is One of Inconsistency
"Darren till versus kelvin. Gasol and that's a big fight of we did it today. It was an even bigger fight than it had major implications on it. I remember working for. Espn out there and dana came to the desk. This is prior to the fight. And i said to him flat out if darren till beats kelvin will be considered for the championship fight against sonya and dana said. Yes so simple as that but just to remind you of this timeframe. That would've may darren until undefeated at one eighty five even if he would have taken out a top contender in gats lem. Who just had the most razor thin fight of audits on his career there was a major revolving door. It would have opened things for till taking you back to that time from shows up to press conference and he almost fell asleep at he was so tired. So you're not gonna expect till the do very well in all fairness that's a super hard fight in a foreign land while you're exhausted at away class you have been at. Oh by the way now you get the pleasures of jetlag real thing. Till's dog going to perform well wrong. He did. But i could say the same thing about the night that till lost the welterweight championship fight to woodley. He was a favourite. The sport was getting ready to welcome in the till era. People thought he was going to run away with it and it wasn't a matter that t- would beat him if he would have beat him. I don't think i'm having this conversation. I probably would have forgotten. The fight happened. it was the way till performed. He did it till greatly underperformed. He got taken down. He's hard to take down. He got taken down. He got mauled when he was there. He got tired within the fight. It was just the performance. The lights were bright. There was a lot on. It was a massive weight cut in he underperformed point that make it. You don't know what makes this guy tick the night that till popped onto the radar. He gets thrown into a main event against cowboys. Sarony i remember. Shaab doing an entire piece on this prior to the fight and brennan was saying cowboy. Don't take this fight. There's nothing for you to gain. You're taking on an absolute unknown. All you have to do is lose esteem. even if you beat this guy you get nothing if you do anything short of steamroll him you go backwards till one the fight and he did it in the first round it did surprise everybody right you know cowboys gonna take the fight. You know that story cowboy didn't give a damn. I'm just setting the stage for you of till's career in the performances that till has had with what you thought would happen when you think everything's gonna be smooth. He's going to perform well. He doesn't when you think everything's against him he's going to go out there and laying egg he doesn't he doesn't he still inconsistent.
"sonya" Discussed on Pure Nonfiction: Inside Documentary Film
"You can see our show notes for links to all these references. We were speaking in september. Twenty twenty in the prior three months. The documentary field like all organizations was facing a new scrutiny. Our conversation is rooted in that moment but a year later the discussion points remain just as relevant. Jesse was joining me from toronto. And sonia from los angeles against the backdrop of california's wildfires. Our conversation starts zairean. Sonya what is this time of reckoning. Mean for her reckoning is brought Is is not just you know falling on our laps here in the nonfiction field You know we're we're. We're undergoing a global reckoning and certainly in the western It within western countries who are having to confront You know centuries of you know the opposite of right relationship with With communities whose land talk Whose land they a who's labor. They took You know we're in in the united states. Just you know for example. You know this reckoning that we're seeing in nonfiction receding in the theater world In journalism we are seeing in In in the way people are in law schools in the way law is applied criminal justice system. Certainly the way journalism is taught they reckoning about correction a demanding for a correction of of long standing norms. That favored one group over another. And i think The pandemic certainly brought a brought us to a standstill. You know as a as a as a people and forced us to confront what came after the you know the initial pandemic which which was this uprising because of police brutality in state violence and the comp in the confluence of that you know with the recession has forced. You know at least the united states certainly could say north and south america a confrontation with our past a confrontation with how our past has shaped our future in ways that we don't always like to acknowledge and i think this the the the dire economic circumstances the the the real fears around people's physical safety has just turned what was once somewhat polite conversation and that was maybe assuaged by superficial responses. It just took all of that off the table and said we need to look at the core issues that have created inequity and pain and we have to confront them and we have to think about new pathways not a restoration to what we had pre kovin but we have to create something new new systems new economic systems new relationships new centers of power new norms and an understanding of why. And how we do this work. It all needs to be rethought it all needs to shift And so you know what it looks like in our field. We know what it looks like. It looks like angry fist messages. It looks like it looks like confrontations at film festivals. It looks like people out of work and you know festivals and organisations closing down. And it is. It's it's a cascade but what we're talking about. Is that the foundation on which this field and this country was built on is broken and we can't dance around that anymore. We have to look at that. And so that's to me. What what this reckoning moment is really about jesse i wanna Get your thoughts on this. I mean this summer. We did see corporations. Making statements about black lives matters. We saw at least one sports team retire old racists name We start thing some things that are merely performance. And something's at feel like they're going deeper So i wonder how you see the power in this movements to to leverage further change on his definitely power in the movement to leverage for their changing. You mentioned the mascot issue That stadium is the sixties every every opening this year. in alliance i would. I suggest a couple of things that come one. Most importantly in a solidarity between racial is people between indigenous black people. You know we have a lot of solidarity and mutual interest in this moment masks in the dehumanization that they represent are interconnected with the dehumanisation that is.

"You will absolutely find yourself back in your old loops in your old stories and one of the things that i think because we are so indoctrinated again inside of this idea of getting it right is that when we found ourselves back in our old loops like failed right and then we have what what one of my workshop participants called meta shame now have shamed for having shame. Right that's exhausted. That's a lot of. It's a truckin of shame. And i think what what we can offer ourselves is is the grace of imperfection on the journey. I tell people all the time. I run an entire organization. I've written three books. All related to only about focus my whole life on radical self love and there are days when i do not feel like i like myself and i don't like this body when i'm over it and my work on those days is to love the sonya the doesn't feel like she loves her body until she loves her body again. I love you song. You feels not enough. I love you sonya. Who feels like you're failing on. You can't fit into this shirt us to be able to fit into. I love you. And the more that practice loving that sonia that imperfect on her journey sonya the more capacity. I have to return to that space of love. I invite that for all of us on this journey. It's the only thing that makes sustainable. Let me go back into sort of my role to asked for of spokesman for all straight white males so i can hear too skeptical arguments emerging from a straight white male reptile brain. One is at. I'll let you attack either or both one is this whole i love you. Fill in the blank thing is forced overly earnest to swim trickily. I want to do it. The other is if i feel like i'm enough. If i love myself. I get over my insufficiency i will be utterly ineffective. I weren't car vicious. Yes exactly both of those. I'm quite familiar with the first thing that we have to do is just acknowledge whether it's resistance and get curious about the resistance because the first scenario it was just resistance saccharin. It's too sweet. I don't wanna. I wanna love myself. What does that even sound like. Like if you let yourself just sit with the reflection of our love myself let yourself be with that right because i think if we sit with that long enough we started to be like. There's something underneath that. There's a fear underneath it. There's a fear that i'm gonna lose something. There's a fear that again that the external things that i have gained by not being in that relationship will be lost right. I'm gonna lose something and let yourself be with that right. 'cause the truth of the matter is in this is again one of the uncomfortable realities of radical self. Love is you will lose something in a world that has rewarded you for being disconnected from yourself disconnected from others and plugged into dominance and aggression as the way in which to assign value divesting from. That will cost you. And i am never gonna pretend like it will not it absolutely will cost you. And it's the reason why people cling to it and what i want to invite in that space is choosing you. That's what i really want to invite is what would it look like to choose me because some of us have only ever had that option. And i think that's an important thing to remember is there's only so much cashing in on what the system says is appropriate or dateable that i can use. It expires at my fatness. It expires at my blackness. It expires at my woman. There are things that are immutable about me that the system will never ever say is the top rank and so i've had to figure out either to live in self loathing about those things or to to recognize the system as a liar that is that is stealing something from me is stealing my wholeness my connection to other humans and my connection to myself and i invite people particularly the folks who are at the top of that wrong the people who get rewarded the most for being the most disconnected from this to take back your humanity. 'cause that's actually the thing that the latter ask you to exchange. Can you be less fully human with yourself and with others in exchange for all of these external prices. And i believe that if we really let ourselves into ourselves we want our humanity back. I can see it. I see it every single day. That there are ways in which we all want the fullness of our humanity back and i believe the radical self love offers us that that's question number one question number two if the only thing that is making you ambitious is the idea that you are not enough. If what you have attained requires you to be less fully connected to yourself. I would offer that it's on its way to crumbling anyway. It is not sustainable. It is not sustainable because they are not asking you to pull from an inexhaustible resource they're asking you to pull from an exhaustible resource that has limited amounts of energy time and actual physical existence. And so if your ambition is only driven by an engine that is soon to burn out. It's gonna burn out anyway. Love i assure you the radical self love mix you alive. It makes you a live to your purpose..

"Download the ten percent happier app in the apple app store. Then tap on the podcast tab at the bottom of the screen. Okay here. we go now with sonya renee. Taylor san urinate taylor. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me dan. I'm really looking forward to this l. Let me start with some definitions. What is radical self love. what is that radical self. love is our inherent sense of worthiness enough nece divinity. It is the source state in which we arrived. I'd like to think of it as like the human operating system before anybody starts tinkering with it like we came installed with radical self love. We already were fully connected to our own divinity fully connected to the divinity of others like we thought all humans were amazing. We thought the fact that we had feet were amazing. I say all the time like you've never seen a self-loathing toddler you know. There's no toddler who's like i just can't stand. The east is like this. Not a thing right. Toddlers are in love with themselves. They think they're amazing. They think fascinating. And that's our original state that relationship actual joy and celebration inside of our beings and beings of others. that's what i see radical self love when you say divinity what do you mean. I asked that. Because i'm what i call a respectfully gnostic but i think some percentage of the people in the meditation world come to it because they either don't have any feeling connection to traditional religion or bad experience there So when you say divinity what do you mean is that a specific religion. You have in mind. It is not a specific religion. That i have in mind the way that i connect to my own sense of divinity one is that i have source right like regardless of whatever your theological or cosmological belief is. There was the starting point. There is a thing in which other things come forth whatever that is whether that was the big bang but there is a process through which life gets created to me that experiences divine and so whatever it is that source that created flowers that created the ocean. Whatever it was that made that that same source energy also created a sonya which i think is pretty cool and for me that speaks to my idea of what is divine divine is whatever it is that creates this ecosystem of life. Whatever things go into that such that life keeps wanting to manifest itself both through me and through the things around me. That's the experience of divinity that i talking about and they're away certainly that correlates with religious philosophies but i think it also correlates with things that are not religious at all so it could be just nature as opposed to sort of a creator god of some sorts absolutely. Yeah whatever works for you. i'm not in you know. I'm i to tell people like this is what this means. I'm much more interested in. Can we drop into the experience of a thing less about like the labels are the we've attached to it. What is the felt experience of that. Which is magnificent in the world that you find you know unfathomable in its beauty in the world. Can we feel that in ourselves. Can i since my connection to that that to me is divinity well. Let's talk about. How one does that. Because i think a lot of people listening to the suit ceo radical self. Love sounds pretty good. I'll have what she's having et cetera et cetera. But how does one even begin to feel this. So i think that feeling. It is a process of actually recognizing what we feel instead. Because if radical self love is our inherent state right. I use the word. Radical literally pulling from the dictionary definitions of radical inherent foundational thoroughgoing in extreme proposing drastic political and economic change. These are the framework by which i talk about radical self love and so in order to understand that if it is inherent and i'm not feeling it then the question is what is in between me in that which is inherent in me. What am i feeling instead. What's the story that's living on top of it. And how do i begin to. Disengage that story that is for me the way back to radical self love. It's kind of like an onion if radical self love is in the center. There's a whole lot of layers that we've put on top that we actually have to start peeling away so that we can get back to that. Core bulb were new. Things grow from playing with the onion metaphor here. There may be some crying as you go through the layers. There's a lot of crying. I think it's really important for people to realize i'd never propose that. This is an easy journey. I think we should be leery and skeptical of anyone who proposes radical self. Love is this light fluffy airy-fairy just go to the day spa and you know. Take more naps with cucumbers on your eyes and you'll be at radical self love if that's what they're proposing. We are talking about a drastically different thing than what i'm talking about. Because in order to get to that inherent space becoming aware of where you have been becoming aware of the thoughts that have been governing your life becoming aware of the thoughts that have been governing your relationships with other people in the ways in which those are fear and shame and trauma based oppression based and having to confront that is deeply uncomfortable however one of the things that i propose is that it's already uncomfortable living in fear and shame and disconnection from yourself and disconnection from everybody else is already uncomfortable. So if you're gonna be uncomfortable. Be uncomfortable in service of your liberation uncomfortable in service of your own growth and i think sometimes we settle for the discomfort that we're the most familiar with rather than the one that gets us closer to what we most desire to be and manifest in the world so in that spirit. Can you say more about how we start peeling back. The layers of the onion. How we do i mean. Is this a the job of therapy. One the modalities you recommend in this process. I'm a person who believes in a deep to built. I do everything. I have done a little bit of everything and i add all of those things but i think if you wanna break it down to sort of simplest forms the way that i talk about it in the book is a thinking doing being process. The first step is that you actually have to become conscious of your thoughts. Yes to become conscious of the ways in which you are moving through the world so the things that usually operate on autopilot right. The i'm to use a simple example. And i think it's really important. Sometimes i will use the example of weight. Because it's an easy one for people to understand but i am in no way making radical self love or the work that i do about. Just wait the work. That i do is about all the ways that we show up in our bodies and in our beings and all the ways that we are conditioned to believe that somehow that's not enough so just felt like that's important to say so but in this example. Say it's wait. I go to the store. I try on some jeans. They don't fit the immediate default response for me is that there's something wrong with my body. That's the immediate default response for most people socialized female in the world is. Something's wrong with my body. It's me dasha. Can't believe i've gained weight. What's wrong with me. Whatever that story is and that happens so quickly that you never challenge it. You never say. Where does that thought come from. What is that about. Why is it wrong for me and not actually that the jean maker's only make jeans cut this particular way doesn't match my body right. Am i the first line of assault..

The Migration of the Monarch Butterfly
"On the show today. Migration there are many hundreds if not thousands of species of birds that migrate. there's caribou across canada wildebeest in africa. There are migratory fish like salmon and also a lot of marine animals migrate long distances like sea turtles and whales. But right now. Let's turn our attention to the humble but tenacious monarch butterfly. I think of monarchs is the tanks of the butterfly world. so they're small they way only a half a gram but they can travel thousands of kilometers in the wild. This is sonia. All tyzzer many colleges at the university of georgia so i study the ecology of animal migration and sonya says monarch butterflies are different because their migration is multi generational so the same monarch never makes the journey twice. It's their grand offspring and great grand offspring of the migratory generation that will migrate again the following year sonya's specifically talking about a migration path east of the rocky mountains. These monarchs travel thousands of miles across international borders every year. Ecologists think they're looking for the precious milkweed clamped in arguably the most important driver for them is food and especially milkweed plants where the females can lay their eggs. Another reason why they migrate is to ride out the winter in the sierra madre mountains near mexico city

And i wanted to start with a bit about your journey to this country. We have a large number of listeners from indiana in particular and i know you came to this country for graduate school. I know that you came here briefly as a child and then again for graduate school and so would really enjoy your end where you are from an indian a bit about your journey to this country becoming a mechanical engineer a business analyst experience executive in early the manufacturing finance and now elected official for second term and the first indian and hindu to be elected to the michigan state legislature and spiring journey. That began began in india. That'd be here for me about much. So i actually was born not in where my parents are from. My mom is from regimen dri. My father is from ten ali and then whatever reason you know mothers women go home to their parents or their family to deliver a child so my mom went to. Her eldest brother was working in a city called lie. It was in madhya pradesh. Today it is in check. These cut so is born in july and then my dad had come to the united states in the wave of immigrants that came to study here in the late sixties early seventies and my mother and i followed him. My mom also did postgraduate work here. She's a biologist. She did her phd at the state university of new york at stony brook. And so after living here for so many years in northeastern part of the united states my parents decided. My brother was one year old. I was fifteen and we moved back to india so that they could take the education that they had acquired here and then helped their country. Now i spent eleven years here growing up when i landed in india. I do feel at home. I had an american accent had an american attitude. And so i think that it wasn't just the best age to move to shift cultures in this was pre internet so really had no idea what i was getting into and i would be very outspoken. I come from a traditional seth indian family and you know as the girl amongst many boy cousins. I would always end up arguing with them and associated a lot of the patriarchy that i experienced and that i confronted with

The Power of Radical Self-Love
"Welcome sonia i thank you so much for having me you know i was so excited to have you be part of my podcast when your team reached out. Because i've been a fan of your book ready. And i follow you on social media and was so exciting to hear that we're talking now about your revised and expanded second edition along with the workbook. Bet you're gonna be. Is it in april in march march. Sixteen okay great. So why don't you tell me why you decided to revise and expand your second edition and how the workbook complements the initial book. Absolutely so first of all. Thanks so much for having me glad to be in conversation so my publisher approached. My publisher approached me to write the book. The very first time i wrote and then they came back and they were like a second addition and what really was useful in maybe be willing to entertain the idea. Was i knew that the very first edition was really about our individual journey with radical. self love. How do we use this concept of radical self love to transform how we feel in our own bodies how we feel about ourselves how we relate to ourselves based on a clear understanding of the messages we see received from the world and the piece that always matter to me was great now that we have dealt with this internal relationship. How do we use this framework to deal with how we deal with other bodies because that's the structural that's the systemic. That's not we begin to you know. Really tear down the walls of oppression. And so the second edition really felt like an opportunity to have that conversation. Now the challenge in a second edition is they do away with the first edition so the first edition which i thought was so necessary. Valuable in terms of giving folks practical fools about how to apply radical self love to their own lives. We were gonna lose some of that in creating the second edition
Channeling a spirit
"Welcome to kids myths and mysteries. So i'm your host kid crumb today in my month long. Look into all things around ghosts. I take a close look at channel. Lena spirit the practice of channeling a person's body being taken over by spirit for the purpose of communication has been around for a millennia. There are countless stories of shaman which doctors prophets and others who claimed to hear voices or received some supernatural knowledge from the spirit world. Chandler's also sometimes known as psychic mediums. Often use what are called spirit guys friendly spirits who give them knowledge and help them help others with the spiritual journey according to experts sonya. Roman and dwayne packer authors of to channel. How to connect with your guide. Channeling is a powerful means of spiritual unfoldment unconscious transformation as you channel you build a bridge to a higher rome loving caring purposeful collective higher consciousness that has been called god all that is the universe universal mine. Channeling involves consciously shifting your mind and mental space in order to achieve an expanded state of consciousness to achieve the expanded state of consciousness channels usually meditate trying to break free of worldly influences and tune into a higher consciousness. They may imagine themselves seeking out specific spirits of the dead. Or they may be. Contacted by unbidden by some unknown force. That wishes to communicate while most people channel to seek inner wisdom entire books have been written supposedly by ancient spirits. Channel through modern mediums and factor are hundreds of such books many of which can be found in new age. Sections of bookstores are libraries round. The world. the most famous american writer channel. Or was jane roberts who claim to channel an ancient and wise entity name set for her nineteen seventy-two bestseller. Seth speaks as well as several popular sequels. Roberts as seth dictated esoteric information to her husband about a soul the nature of consciousness spiritual truths higher planes of reality since the nineteen eighties. New age mystic jays. He night has claimed channel round also known as enlightened one thirty five thousand year old warrior spirit who described among other things being born on the continent of atlantis. Night became a multimillionaire writing books and offering seminars. In dvd's teaching the wisdom imparted by her rump. Thought another prominent chandler in the one thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety s was actress shirley maclaine who wrote a bestselling book and a popular television mini series on the subject. Channeling has waned in popularity in recent years so it is still practiced and it's widely accepted in a new age community channel. Information from different sources is often a dozen different spirits presumably dwelling in the same after world. Give a dozen different accounts if the spirits are truly imparting be important cosmic wisdom and universal truths you would expect different channels in different places and times to say the same things instead. Studies have shown that channel information changes with the times and tends to reflect the idea's popular in the culture at the time because there is no way to verify information and descriptions of different planes of existence the nature of the soul. And so on. There's no way to know what if any of the channel information is accurate but clearly much of it cannot be correct would help verify channel and as a real phenomenon would be to have accurate concrete and verifiable information revealed that only the spirit world would know for example. A person who truly channel einstein should be able to continue making important discoveries long after his death or a father who died unexpectedly and left his affairs. Disarray should be able to tell his wife and family through chandler were important. Documents are located to help and settle his estate.

Africa and museums: shaping the future; rethinking the past
"I just on your lawson. The founding director of the paloma in togo and andrew santo. Who's just written a book with twenty eight interviews with museum leaders across the world. I also speak to. Dan hicks about his book. The british museum's about the bronzes and for our work the week christopher repeal of the national gallery in london talks about san mateo painting of copernicus. That's coming to the national for an exhibition next year before that a reminder that you can sign up for the art newspapers free daily newsletter for all the latest stories goes to the art newspaper dot com and the link is at the top right of the page. And while you're there you can also sign up for a range of other newsletters including the book club and the art market. I now a new book by the writer and cultural strategy advisor andhra santo features twenty eight conversations with directors of museums and other institutions oldham during the covid nineteen pandemic the future of the museum. Twenty eight dialogues. Include voices from across the world attempting to define museums and the challenges and opportunities ahead of them now and in the coming days among them. Direct is of african museums including sonia lawson the director of the paladin loma in togo in west africa. Andress and sonia join me to discuss the role of museums today and look at how sonya's togalese institution reflects a new coq drew dynamism on the african continent andress. I wanted to begin by asking you. This book was written on zoom. Just as we are now essentially so you talked to twenty eight museum or cultural institution directors about what they were doing. It happened to be done in the covy deer as it were but was it. Germinating is an idea for a much longer period this spring. I wrote an article in art. Net news actually wrote it over easter weekend. So i remember did very well I guess that was early april. I can't remember the exact dates and it was an article about reopening museums. And it just hit a nerve. It really got a lot of people talking at the time. And i heard from dozens and dozens of museum directors and just became part of illogic conversation. And that's when we really realized that this is the moment because it gave us an editorial frame because it it really was a moment that made us ask what is the future about. Still trying to figure it out. I think there's no doubt in all of our minds that this is one of those years in the calendar that will be a turning point. A historical marker where new phase is beginning persona. I think this phase is the one that started in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine just ended. Now we have a new face. So what does that mean for museums. Once i figured out that this would be a book not just of conversations with museum. Directors conversations about the future not necessarily revisiting. Why museums have been great in the past of which many reasons to talk about that too but to really have a forward-looking and that is what led to choices like this extraordinary new institution in togo. Which i think is such a taste of where museums or cultural institutions or cultural centers are headed All around the world so so in a way this moment. This covert moment crystallized. How such a book could come about and how we would choose directors to be in it before we speak specifically about sons institution. I wanted to ask you about a phrase that you use in the to the book where you talk about how. The paradigm smashing experimentation in museums and cultural institutions is happening in effectively in the global south so in africa in asia in latin america. Can you expand on that a bit now. Because what do you think lies behind that. Well first of all i. That's not to say it's not happening elsewhere. And i think the book provides lots of examples of how people are thinking you in original ways about museums all around the world. But i think that there are perhaps two main reasons. Why so many of these truly interesting. And i would say inspiring. Examples of new practices are often happening in the global. South one is that many of these institutions are brand new. So it's you can speak to this. They have an opportunity to really design for the now and for the future. They're not dealing with a legacy infrastructure. They're not trying to retrofit something. That was already there and tried to adapt it to the future.
WTA Year End Awards for 2020
"Everyone john worth. I'm hearing sports. Illustrated tennis podcast. Jamie joins me for a grab bag topics. We are midway through the final so hard to make any definitive conclusions there but we can talk about the the back of played so far. We'll talk about twenty twenty one tennis and what the picture is looking like. It's slowly coming into focus but still considerably Blurry and uncertain. We'll talk w. t. awards. There are no more women's tennis events on the calendar. But we can start distributing some honors and just sort of a catchall of tennis topics as we want to say to the finish. But we're not exactly sprinting. Either a stranger that is Finishing under strained conditions and we talk about sort of where the sport is here in mid november twenty twenty so jamie welcome. it's it's been a while. how are you. i'm good. i agree with you. It's a weird year. And i feel like we've been talking a lot about the atp and obviously the atp finals are happening. So i am happy to start by out talking about the wpa and some of these awards all right. let's go. let's let's that. I that's a good idea let's go to That'd be the w. t. a. Does not unlike the wto does not have a finals or twenty twenty. Unfortunately that's An offshoot of having events in china where international sporting events were cancelled months ago. So the vendor playing as we speak in london and there is no there is no comparable women's event. So let's say yeah let's do that. Let's start with the women season over. Why don't we hand out some awards. We genda pivot to london. Mvp award is always a bit strange. But if we're going to give player of the year honors. I feel like the player has to have won a major. Do you agree with that. Yes definitely agree with that. But this year of course We had one less. And i think that i would also classify the majors in two creek corona and post corona. I would almost give a little bit more weight or just feel like there's more discussion for all the majors. That are not the train open you know. Of course that was when all was normal and before all this happened But i know you. You went to your pace in your mailbox but are you. Who's your pick. i think it. It sounds sounds a little. I think you've got to say that the so you can is your twenty twenty. Mvp she won a major and got to the final of another If we play this game sometime if your life depended on a player Would she be your pick and the answer is is probably not and do i think in a head to head match. There are players who are superior. If if she and i o miyasaka played ten times i would think naomi osaka with the majority of those matches. But yeah in this straight year. But i think you're right. There was no wimbledon. There there was a us open but it did not feature you know six top ten players including ash barty the number one player including simona halep included the defending champion and that was That was one sock than we had. The french open which also did not feature ash party. Who is the defending champion. It did not feature. Naomi osaka the australian open before corona had the most flush field. So you can in one that and she reached the final of the french open so she is the only player to have won a major and got into the final of another and in this stranger. It's probably appropriate. We have a strange choice but sonya sofia kenyon is my Twenty twenty mvp will by you. I hear you on that. And i think those are all good points. I in you know so that we aren't agreeing here on all of these under some Interest to this conversation. I'm going to take a different pic. i'm gonna go with naomi osaka and i think that In speaking about mvp sort of in the Like a of a lot of awards that are giving out at this time of the year including essays own award sportsperson of the year. It's not just about what's happening on the court. It's just not about results per se about other things that This player has done. So i think that For me. I think niamey osaka. Of course like you said kennan if you're just talking about reaching a final winning final In a major. She's done that but osaka has not only one. But also use her platform and she's spoken up and she's gone beyond the court and i think that you know if we're talking if you're looking at that list of choices here And you check the box with a major win in for me. You check the box with all the other outside stuff off the court that she's done so that's my pick.
"sonya" Discussed on Miss Information: A Trivia Podcast
"We've already immediately alienated fifty percent or listeners. And that's fine. Maybe not. I mean we have met a lot of our listeners in various contexts and they are weirdly mostly men and no matter what we talk about so true. I take back. That's what frankly. I feel like men need to learn more about. Oh women's bodies exactly whether they're interested in women's bodies are not so sonya you're providing a service today and we're very. I absolutely agree. I really hope we didn't have a. I do think it's a really interesting topic and just something tera. It's good to know in general exactly. I totally agree. So sonia whenever you are ready please take us into the lower abdominal region of a female presenting body. Keep going thank you. So i'm going to start off by giving a really brief overview of human reproduction. I think it will be a good way to kind of start us out for people that aren't as familiar with us so human reproduction is defined as any form of sexual reproduction resulting in the fertilization of a woman's ag also known as an ovum by a man's sperm. Now the ovum is normally stored in the ovaries and it is released from the ovary will travel and meet the sperm in the philippian tube. So sperm actually have a longer distance to travel to make this trip. But it's fine because they're much better swimmers so exiled so these two single cells combine and may create a single cell called zydeco. And these zygote still contain chromosomes from each parent. Half half <hes>. Do either of you know how many chromosomes are in chicago. Oh really do you remember this. Twenty twenty. Three's ooh three twenty as good job yes. Gonzaga contains twenty three chromosomes from each parent. And this basically gives the zygote the network material from each parent so whether you have blue eyes. Green is calling your skin. You know certain habits even now this is going to come from the generic material of your parents when he three and me. Yeah that's what i immediately thought of. Yeah there we go exactly so they'll code your jeans. I'm pretty sure they ask you whether or not you. You wanna release your genome data for science. I think that's how it works so <hes>. What happens in the first twenty four hours after fertilization. This single cells i go. It'll rapidly. divide so it'll split in half and you'll end up with two cells and then those will each split again you'll end up with four eight sixteen and they'll just keep dividing until you end up with this tiny little cell mass that's about zero point two millimeters in diameter. I know it's metric just to give you an idea it's about the size of medium coarse grain of sand. So that's very tight. Yeah yeah so. This all happens at by around day for you. Have this tiny grain of sand. This selma's will then hollow to form something called a blastocyst. It is around fluid-filled. Shell with a cell mass. That looks as if it's squished. Onto the inside of the inner cell wall so the inner cell mass will eventually four embryo and then the fetus whereas the outer shell of the blastocyst <hes> is composed of trotha blast cells and that will eventually compose the placenta. Okay have their nice. Yeah so you have these two different cell types that give rise to do two different parts of the embryo in the placenta. So like i said the blastocyst the outer shell is composed of a cell type called trophoblast cells and these we are going to come back to them later. They are super important but this cell type basically allows the this blastocyst to embed itself into the woman's uterus. Okay yeah so so. They tend to have a little bit more invasive properties. So they will. It sounds a little aggressive but it is essentially. What happens. <hes> it'll invade into the mothers tissue and that's how it allows itself to grow and feed off the nutrients of mother

I really hope we didn't have a. I do think it's a really interesting topic and just something tera. It's good to know in general exactly. I totally agree. So sonia whenever you are ready please take us into the lower abdominal region of a female presenting body. Keep going thank you. So i'm going to start off by giving a really brief overview of human reproduction. I think it will be a good way to kind of start us out for people that aren't as familiar with us so human reproduction is defined as any form of sexual reproduction resulting in the fertilization of a woman's ag also known as an ovum by a man's sperm. Now the ovum is normally stored in the ovaries and it is released from the ovary will travel and meet the sperm in the philippian tube. So sperm actually have a longer distance to travel to make this trip. But it's fine because they're much better swimmers so exiled so these two single cells combine and may create a single cell called zydeco. And these zygote still contain chromosomes from each parent. Half half Do either of you know how many chromosomes are in chicago. Oh really do you remember this. Twenty twenty. Three's ooh three twenty as good job yes. Gonzaga contains twenty three chromosomes from each parent. And this basically gives the zygote the network material from each parent so whether you have blue eyes. Green is calling your skin. You know certain habits even now this is going to come from the generic material of your parents when he three and me. Yeah that's what i immediately thought of. Yeah there we go exactly so they'll code your jeans. I'm pretty sure they ask you whether or not you. You wanna release your genome data for science. I think that's how it works so What happens in the first twenty four hours after fertilization. This single cells i go. It'll rapidly. divide so it'll split in half and you'll end up with two cells and then those will each split again you'll end up with four eight sixteen and they'll just keep dividing until you end up with this tiny little cell mass that's about zero point two millimeters in diameter. I know it's metric just to give you an idea it's about the size of medium coarse grain of sand. So that's very tight. Yeah yeah so. This all happens at by around day for you. Have this tiny grain of sand. This selma's will then hollow to form something called a blastocyst. It is around fluid-filled. Shell with a cell mass. That looks as if it's squished. Onto the inside of the inner cell wall so the inner cell mass will eventually four embryo and then the fetus whereas the outer shell of the blastocyst is composed of trotha blast cells and that will eventually compose the placenta. Okay have their nice. Yeah so you have these two different cell types that give rise to do two different parts of the embryo in the placenta. So like i said the blastocyst the outer shell is composed of a cell type called trophoblast cells and these we are going to come back to them later. They are super important but this cell type basically allows the this blastocyst to embed itself into the woman's uterus. Okay yeah so so. They tend to have a little bit more invasive properties. So they will. It sounds a little aggressive but it is essentially. What happens. it'll invade into the mothers tissue and that's how it allows itself to grow and feed off the nutrients of mother
How to Make This Winter Not Totally Suck.
"Hi Sober sellers. It's Lynn. Oh, my goodness one more week when this comes out, I will be moving in one more week. So yeah, I'm really excited had some hiccups along the way I don't know if you all remember living in an apartment buildings. That's where I'm moving from and moving to I'm not buying a house quite yet in my little village in evidently something happened to me every time I move and this time it was kind of a big one I was moving into this brand new building with four stories although I'm GonNa live on the second floor, right above the shops with. Florida ceiling windows kind of like a loft and wouldn't you know that Kovin interruptus happened? Yeah. So the elevator people can't put the elevator in and this is quite a complex project from what I understand even in twenty twenty, they are I don't know six months behind as what I'm told, and now I have to move into a temporary residence which I'm now wrapping my brain around but it's one bedroom instead of two bedrooms. So I have to downsize a little bit more than I thought I was going to and I might be in the. Apartment for about three months. So there you go Bobbin we've in our way through two thousand, twenty I'm still so very excited. So after some contemplation and some you know. Anger and disappointment whereas my feeling wheel and some other things I got through it and decided to make the best of it and that's what I'm doing. Now, of course, there's lots of stuff in between all there. So you know I have to pull out my tools from my buffer zone just like you do. which brings me to today's topic in the spirit of all of us who have moved before. Yeah. I'm expending a lot of energy right now and I'm excited and I'm busy and I'm forgetting stuff. So I'm trying to keep the next few weeks of podcast episodes brief or if I don't win that battle with myself, which is very difficult to keep things brief I'm going to choose things that tickle me and that I wanNA. Share you and I came across one of those just this week by a writer who writes a lot for the Atlantic she was on staff there and I haven't really followed her I'm not a writer follower type but I know I've read a bunch of her stuff. Her name is Seagal Samuel and the article I'm going to read you she wrote for Vox and you gotTA. Love the title how to make this winter not totally suck. According to psychologists. Many of us are throwing her arms up in the air and still going what the heck is going on here. in the United. States. Election will be shortly upon us and were quite uncertain about what that's going to bring. Nobody really knows t leave readers all over the place but crazy stuff keeps happening day by day. So we'll just see ultimately the goal for those of you listening as you well know for me is to share with you how are we going to cope with all this? Tabei Day week by week sometimes minute by minute and second by second. So. That's why I love this article. And I thought today. y'All might forgive me if I kinda just read it to you. You know I can't help myself from jumping in and give him my own little take on things which Typically you'll hear me change my tone of voice or Interject Lynn here my plan is that you'll actually be able to decipher that. And enjoy the little nuggets of wisdom that is Samuel has shared with us. Again the article is shared on Vox V. O. X. DOT COM. and. The author is Seagal I hopeful that I'm pronouncing that right but you know there's a fifty fifty chance of everything last name Samuel and it was published on October fourteenth twenty twenty. She begins I'm GonNa go out on a limb and say, you're probably dreading this winter. We know it's going to be harder to socialize outdoors as the weather gets colder. We also know there's probably going to be a surge. Yeah. In New Cova. Nineteen infections many of us are feeling anxious about how we're going to make it through. The lonely bleak months ahead I see a lot of people trying to cope with this anxiety by drumming up one off solutions y'all are going to love this. By a fire pit better yet by a whole house or like I'm doing move. Those may be perfectly fine ideas as far as they go but I'd like to suggest a more effective way to think about reducing your suffering an increasing your happiness. This winter studies show that anything we can do to direct our attention off of ourselves and onto other people or other things is usually productive and makes us happier. Said Sonya Lia- by Mirsky, a psychology professor at the University of California, Riverside and author of the how of happiness a scientific approach to getting the life you want. She goes on to say a lot of life's problems are caused by too much self-focused and self absorption, and we often focus too much on the negatives about

"Welcome back to Latino USA I might be able to host before the break we were speaking with Sonya DS and who your together but a lot about the state of the Latino vote in the twenty twenty primary elections let's jump back to the conversation so a lot of the times when you're when people think about you know the power of the let the next vote they think about places like California Texas Florida that have these pretty huge Latino populations but we know that the Latino vote was significant for Sanders in Iowa even though the took considered to be a very white state let's talk about states like Georgia or Washington state or other places where you believe the Latino vote could have a big influence that people might not be looking at yeah you know my face is lighting up and I think it's so wild because we really truly Latinos and Asian Americans to a lesser extent are everywhere where there are jobs are us and that's true of Georgia in twenty sixteen when I was driving across the country from California to Virginia for the campaign I remember one of the nice things on the radio was this young woman who was running for the house the state house in Georgia and she ultimately was the first Latina he gonna elected and now she's running right now on the cycle for Congress so there's an emerging Latino and Asian American population in Georgia and they're going to be critical to thinking through how that state addresses substantive issues whether it's a women's right to choose or it's thinking through admission and instate tuition for immigrant students so what's at stake is really democracy and even getting out to the ballot box and elect in substantive candidates there are still threats that we need to think throw so I think whatever presidential campaign on the democratic ticket a successful they're gonna really have to fight like hell for down ballot the new voters have been called the sleeping giant you know for years I would say that it looks like the sleeping giant has definitely awoken and that that you are hearing a lot more about Latino voter turnout and their impact in terms of the primaries but because the Latino vote has really been so progressive in terms of Bernie Sanders it feels like the Democratic Party that feel safer with a biting ticket is almost saying to Latino voters we heard you were glad you're awake and now we really want to give you some nyquil can you go back to sleep are you concerned about this notion of Latino voters kind of feeling like well we said what what we believe but you didn't want to hear as you want us to vote for the more moderate candidate Joe Biden this notion of you know thirty two million eligible Latino voters all taking nyquil will forever be etched in my brain but two things about it you know in our reporting with us you know Latinos from all over the country forty one dealer gonna vote yes on one of the primary what if your candidate doesn't win I don't know if I want to vote and that's a problem that I think the Democratic Party has to come to terms with because if the Democratic Party has not learned from two thousand sixteen that all you're doing is trump is a bad president for immigrants and Latinos that didn't work the reality is the trump campaign this time around has formally created a Latinos for trump committee that is part of their campaign and you have evangelicals you have heads of major churches you have entrepreneurs businessmen gun rights advocates pro life advocates all over the country like V. the trump campaign is putting money into the out reach and this is gonna sound really controversial and I'm sure I'm gonna be misquoted but I'm gonna say it anyway the trump campaign is doing a better job in getting Latino Republican outreach in the Democratic Party as a party is doing in getting Latino voters to stay awake what's your take saying in terms of Latino Latino voters and their sense about the Democratic Party and its responsiveness to them as voters yeah I mean frankly I think that the Democratic Party has failed voters of color this isn't a failure on the part of engaging Latinos it's also a failure of engaging black voters and this is both because of who they select as our candidates for not seeing candidates of color supported by the Democratic National Committee in a way that we need to know for the future saliency of our democracy but also to engage and excite an electorate that is fast growing and becoming the nation's new majority so there is a strategic opportunity that has continued to be messed and quite frankly way too much is at stake we've seen the horrors of the last three and a half years and we cannot afford to continue to move a country if not the world in this direction.

"And how will become wiser and more conscious human beings our guest today sonia co tae is an actress author singer and speaker who shares her powerful journey journey to fully embrace her body in her new book. I'm not naked anymore. Memoirs of a contemporary jazz abell a survivor of childhood sexual abuse the stories of sonya's life center around creative self expression and fully owning her body while having fun in the process after my first edit of her conversation. I became curious as i do about why sonya refers to herself as a contemporary jazz ball and i hadn't asked during the interview so i wrote to sonya and in this story that she sent back to me in email and i thought instead of love condensing it that i would share it with you before jumping into the conversation so in sonia's words when i was fifteen gene and stuck in a small town the only thing that i could do for excitement was attend weekly bible studies that ended in youth group activities. One of those lessons was on this woman named gel from the first testament. King ahab arranged marriage wife. I fell in love with her as much for what was not said about her. As what was the clearly cut out most of her story and only included the nasty parts where she took over her husband's politics when her popularity calamity with her people fell though seeking to take over her husband's office attack the only thing that they could do with a strong woman like that her sexuality. It seems that was the best they could come up with for an insult about her. It was later added on that. She cavorted under full moon ceremonies having wild orgies. This is what was said about pagans and wiccans in my mind she was a strong woman said to be a redhead. A venetian queen allowed out to keep her pagan faith and when her executioner came up for her she sat in her tower and applied her makeup and brushed out her long hair making herself beautiful so so that she could face death in her most regal state the expression thrown to the dogs comes from her death where she was thrown from her tower and her own dogs six eight <unk> her body low leaving only her hands and feet and had. I think she's a hero. If i had that much courage and tenacity vision in and follow through she represents a strong independent incredible woman with admirable qualities is only because of christianity largely erasing or rewriting history of women that she is misunderstood and maligned. It's amazing what happens when you ask. A person question isn't isn't it. I would like to put forward an argument that <hes> sonia coattail makes for a very strong independent tenacious woman.

I'm not naked anymore her and or i'm not naked and in parentheses anymore and giant and let's dive into your story and take the conversation from there because i know we've got a lot of i got a lot of possibilities that we can jump off of well. I wrote the book <hes> the subtitle which is called memoirs of a contemporary very judgemental jessie belle being my former stripping name. I wrote the book <hes> for a number of reasons most notably because it was time that i got got it all out it starts with it was post me too when i decided to rehash the entire book and publish it finally the and it started with my sexual abuse child which in my opinion while it says source of strength for me now it was a rates <hes> impediment to my beginning of my life even right up until probably my early thirties <hes>
