Did Boston Celtics Overplay Their Hand?
"Boston. Overplay its hand. There were a lot of reports in the hours. Leading up gordon hayward signing that the celtics and the pacers were discussing a sign and trade gary washburn over the boston globe. He suggests that the pacers were willing to throw in miles. Turner the celtics water a miles. Turner plus package whether it's miles. Turner and tj warren or miles turner and victoria depot. That that that celtics package seemed to highly unlikely to be something the pacers would go for. Tj warrant is coming off a monster performance in the bubble and victor oladipo for all his injury issues. last year is still an all star level player. You don't give up to players of that caliber to get a player. That play like gordon hayward frankly so the celtics. They didn't walk away with nothing because they do have tristan thompson. Now they do have jeff teague. But i can see jeff how miles turner would goodness celtics uniform. And the guy is a three point shooting mobile shot-blocking big man. He's not perfect. He's been called soft before there's questions about positional fit. But something tells me brad. Stevens could do well with versatile. Big man who can shoot three pointer. I i just. I wonder if we'll look back on this in a year and wonder if the celtics overplayed their hand because miles turner in addition to all the things i said he's got a reasonable contract by nba standards anyway. Eighteen million dollars per year over the next three. What do you think of that. Do you think there's a chance the celtics overplayed their hands here. I don't know. I don't think so. Crass t taking a slightly different tact on it. Because i wasn't all that a or the whole idea of only getting mile turner back in the deal. I understand everything you just said But the celtics certainly just made a a decision that that's what they were looking for excitement. Lucy gordon hayward elsewhere without getting any say return on. I don't mind that trying to get a little bit more in it. Not working out for them and again. I'm hearing all your points what you're saying about mouse. Turner but that's something maybe dearly age his staff. I'm not saying you're gonna go out and find another mouse. Turner application that production with a couple of different players here and there and whether it ends up being some kind of combination of daniel thais and looking down the bench and seeing what happens off from that point I just wasn't sure that you know. Look indiana if you really wanna gordon hayward i think you had to force them to really make you pay for it and i don't say that do would you come down to it. The pacers were willing to give up that much and so that sure indicates how much that they really wanted. Gordon hayward i'm fine with the celtics student what they did now. You could be ultimately correct. They may regret not adding that kind of player. Especially we get into the playoffs split I agent it is staff are more than willing to let that ride. It see if they can't come up with that kind of a similar player through the course of use it a couple of different players and seeing what they can do at the trade deadline. Yeah they did get tristan thompson. Which is exactly what they need in on that front line. They've got the more athletic up perimeter shooting floor spacing kind of guy. You've got robert williams who is athletic shop locked they didn't have the physical rebounding tough guy. And that's what tristan thompson is brings championship experience to that team which i think will be a valuable addition and jeff teague is fine. He's not a starter anymore. But you're not asking him to basically kemba walker insurance down there in case kennedy's to take time off that knee injury so it wasn't. It wasn't a failure of an off season for boston. I just. I wonder how we look at this this summer. The summer this fall we look at a couple years
"steven k" Discussed on Work Matters With Ken Coleman
"This work matters with bestselling author and syndicated talk. Show host. Ken coleman it's wednesday november twenty fifth. I wanna share another story of doing this each day this week. We're going to get through this week. To highlight very well known successful people from different walks of life but to highlight the same things that you deal with they have dealt with. And so today. I let off the program by saying i want to tell you about what you and your story have in common on the greatest storytellers of all time and that storyteller is steven spielberg. Obviously we all know. Indiana jones e. jurassic park saving private ryan schindler's list jaws. The list goes on. And on if i didn't mention your favorite spielberg movie. You get the the drill what you may not know about. Spielberg is that he suffers. And i don't even like these words suffer but it is a challenge now if a family member that struggles with it but he struggles with dyslexia and back when he was in high school. You really know what dyslexia was and how to deal with it and how to come around and see the brilliance of those who are dyslexic but he had poor grades as a result. He got rejected from university of southern california. Not once not twice three times. What's fun about it is. Joe is eventually was awarded an honorary degree and became a trustee later. Yeah he didn't cut it back in the day. There's some rejection folks. How many times have you been told no all right you get. The drill is keep moving. How about failure dropped out of film school that he was eventually readmitted to because he wanted to be a director eventually did finish his degree even though he obviously never needed it about fear and doubt at the age of sixteen he watches lawrence of arabia theaters. Any almost quit his dream of being a filmmaker because he was so intimidated by now looking at a movie through the lens of. I'd like to do that and he was like. I don't know that i could do that. I i must be fantasizing out of my mind. I may have lost my mind. How many of you felt like that before. Haven't you feel like that right now. The dream is clear but then you see other people do. There's no chance i could do this. Steven spielberg felt that way but he kept watching. This is my favorite part of the story. He kept watching. The film. warrants arabian started taking notes so instead of being intimidated by it he started paying attention to okay. If i was going to have a chance to pull this off what what do i think i'd have to be able to to begin to take notes and in breaking the film down and beginning to list out what he would need to do he gets the juice back goes from being fearful doubtful too hopeful and fired up about pride. He attempted to break into comedy with the world war. Two four farce nineteen forty one while the film bombed and he says that he spent the next year feeling sick to his stomach feeling like a total failure. He runs into a young george lucas and tells him how he's feeling. And that's when the story of raiders of the lost ark came to him and that turned into the legendary indiana jones series. One of the most successful men in the history of hollywood one of the greatest storytellers greatest directors to ever get behind. A camera had to deal with rejection failure. Fear doubt and pride. It wasn't an easy path for stephen colbert. Is he genius. Us but did he just show up and declare his genius and everything fell in place for him. No be encouraged. What you're feeling what you're experiencing what you've been through. You're not alone. Here's a great quote to share with you. I love this. He said sometimes it dream. Almost whispers almost whispers. It never shouts. It's very hard to hear. So you have to every day of your life. Be ready to hear what whispers in your ear now. That's his experience. And i don't know if that was my experience. I think sometimes the dream can be really loud and in your face wavenet if you have the courage to see it but i also agree with how he said. It got to pay attention. It's that nudge. I- lovely says here it's whispers in your ear so every day realized got to be ready to hear what the whisper is because what tends to be the loudest in our ears are fear and doubt and pry those nasty enemies. We talk about almost every day on this program. And i think spielberg's absolutely right when those voices are really loud. It's hard to hear but you can do it. There's a way you've got this to it. What's the whisper. So last thought on this because i think what he's saying is so profoundly practical. How do we listen for the whisper. The only way to hear the whisper is to be aware of the noise in our heads and in our hearts of fear and doubt and pride all three connected all three different but they get louder and louder the longer we let them stay in our heads the louder they get and it goes from being a lie to feels looks. Sounds like truth and so when we can identify fear doubt and pride because we are clear. The process i teach stage one. What do i do best work. Do i love to do what results of that of my work. Really make my heart sing. It's that clarity. And that's the truth and when we can identify that we're able to hold the voice of fear. The voice of doubt the voice of pride up to the light of clarity and we go. Oh yeah got the always got me out. Ohio the truth and when we begin to see and feel and act from clarity. We hear the whisper. Clarity quiets the mind and the heart to where we can be present and we can hear the whisper to feel that. Did you see that. I think we wanna do that. That's possible. I'm not sure anybody else is gonna do that if i don't do that. Those are the whispers and you can hear them when your brain and your heart a quieted. From the fact that you are clear and when you're clear you know what you wanna do why you want to do it. You have a general idea to get their. Those whispers are gonna come and that's where the extra concrete clarity comes It's not sports broadcasting kin. It's a different. Kind of radio show in the whispers. Just keep getting more consistent and those whispers become more clear and they become louder because we allow ourselves to be able to see what we cannot see clouded by fear and pride to go.

Challenges Await Next Treasury Head
"Former federal reserve chair janet yellen has been at the forefront of us economic policy for decades. If she's confirmed as treasury secretary she'll be taking on a new role during a time of deep political division and significant economic challenges. Joining me now to talk more about yellen's career and the roadblocks she could face going forward his wall street journal senior writer john hills and wrath. Hi john thanks for being here her. They're great to be here. So john janet yellen if confirmed would make history here as the first woman to lead the treasury after also being the first woman to lead the federal reserve. Tell us more about her extensive resume and what's led up to this moment. I don't think that's the big history being made here. The big history is that she's the first human regardless of gender to be treasury secretary chairman of the council of economic advisers and federal reserve chairwoman. So she's had a tri factor. If you add in the fact that she's also a tenured professor from berkeley then. She's hit a grand slam. This is an achievement that no person regardless of gender has achieved and the realm of economic policy. Making you know. I compare her to george shultz the republican. Who served as secretary of state for ronald reagan and also treasury secretary secretary of labor and director of management budget under richard nixon. This is just a person with about as complete resumes. You can get so. Let's talk a little bit about her previous roles as opposed to what treasury secretary rigby much less political role than treasury secretary. What about her past experiences in washington have prepared her for that. And where might we see some challenges if for her taking on a more political role. The fed is a very close in academic place. They kind of pride themselves on not getting into the mix of political debates and being. I wouldn't even say bipartisan. But eighty partisan nonpartisan. Janet yellen did serve as the chair of the council of economic advisers in the clinton administration in the late nineteen ninety s so. She has had exposure to political debates with big personalities. It's interesting though. She's married to george echo off. Who is a nobel prize winning economist in his own right and when he won the nobel prize back in two thousand and one he wrote in his autobiography about the challenges that she faced kind of managing the point ical heat waves of washington the role. He played in supporting her so she's walking in to an environment right now. That is going to be very heated in very point ical. There's gonna be a lot of fights over how much spending the government should do to get the economy out of recession and how much debt it should take on in the process. And she's going to be right in the middle of it. She's a very highly credentialed individual. And i think our challenge is going to be managing the human part of it the political part of it with republicans on capitol hill and the inevitable divisions that are gonna show up inside the biden administration itself. How do you think she will work with congress. She has support among democrats and republicans. Well you know. She knows her way around washington. That's clear and as fed chair. She did have to deal with congress. She had to go up there and testify on a regular basis to give reports on the economy and monetary policy and regulatory policy. So she knows her way around capitol hill one of the reasons that i think that president elect biden chose her is a because it does seem like she's going to have buy in from the progressive wing of the democratic party. She's actually very close to elizabeth warren and also moderates among democrats and then i would say she has a chance with some moderate republicans to try to win them over republicans in the senate in particular to try to win them over on some big debates. And that's where. I think she's going to end up focusing a lot of her attention. You know if she can hold the democratic party if i should say biden can and then win a couple of middle of the road republicans than they might be able to get their way on really big questions about fiscal policy and stimulus and driving this economy out of recession. That was really devastating and twenty twenty and that brings us to some of the key challenges. What do you think some of her first actions will be treasury secretary. And what are those big challenges. She'll be facing from the start. There's so much and this is one of the issues where the job. The treasury is much different than the job at the fed. The job at the fed comes down to two or three things. They gotta make a decision. Every eight weeks about whether interest rates should stay the same or go up a little or go down a little. And then they've got to be they're very involved in the regulation and oversight of banks and then they've got to be ready to deal with crises financial crises at the treasure. You have the tax portfolio you have sanctioned portfolio with international sanctions against countries like north korea and iran. You have the debt portfolio. You have some say in the budget. Portfolio is just a very wide and expansive portfolio. I think the first thing that she's going to confront is a decision that her predecessor will have made. Steven mnuchin called on the fed just a few days ago to end some rescue programs that were aimed at small and medium-sized businesses related to corona virus. The treasury had been designated some money to contribute to the fed program and secretary mnuchin said. The program had expired in the feds gutter return. What's left of the money but you know the new treasury secretary is going to have to decide whether the end that program as mnuchin has set out to do or renew it when that gets to the bigger issue. which is the economy itself. Is it a major crossroads right now. We had a devastating downturn the economy effectively shut in march and april it reopened. We had a very large bounce back in the summer. But it shows signs of slowing. And it's incomplete this recovery at a time when the corona virus is spreading again. Some states are putting in new restrictions on economic activity and there is a race for a vaccine to control the virus. So there's just so much happening right now and it's gonna be yelling role to guide. President elect biden on how hard the government should push to help the economy through a period where it can go one of two directions. It could go back into recession. Or if we get to vaccine quickly enough we could be into. You know a really strong extension of the recovery that we had earlier this summer. So there's just a lot of uncertainty and a lot hard choices to

But perhaps barbara's protests weren't as far fetched as police had assumed a cursory internet search revealed. That barbour stephen were active members of an online cult.

Wherever you're listening it really does help. This is our first and only episode on sherry schreiner. The woman behind a virtual reptilian kalt will explore her troubled childhood as well as how schreiner used the internet to cultivate her following sherry. J. schreiner was born on december eleventh. Nineteen sixty five in cleveland. Ohio into a devout god fearing christian family. She attended private christian schools and went to church every sunday. Surrounded by discussions of jesus and religion. Schreiner never remembered a time when she wasn't thinking about discussing reading the bible while sherry was a very private person of the information that's known about our comes from her self published books in one titled bible codes revealed the coming. Ufo invasion sherry claimed that she was proclaiming. God's name by the age of two and she was reborn by the age of five however also at that time she developed horrific haunting night terrors which she described in vivid detail sherry wrote. A figure would stand at the foot of my bed and stare at me as i lay trying to sleep. Fear and sheer terror with grip every muscle and bone. I had it was at least seven feet tall dark and evil. I would shrivel under my blankets and pray for it to go away. I did not know what it was other than feeling it was some evil being straight from hell and i certainly did not know what it wanted. Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. But she has done a lot of research for this show. thanks greg. The national sleep foundation explained that night terrors can have several causes including extreme tiredness lack of sleep or stress. It is quite possible that stress of her family's devout contributed to share his night terrors. As a child though. We don't know the specifics of the situation. Perhaps sheri's family put pressure on her to adhere to a specific code of conduct prescribed by their faith sheri's terrors continued to haunt her well into her adolescence as the years passed. She had a revelation. These visions were not some anonymous shadowy figures but evil demons sent by lucifer to kill her. She proclaimed herself lucifer's arch enemy. Though she hid this title from those around her by the age of twelve sherry had read the bible from front to back and was particularly interested. In the book of revelation the final book of the christian bible known for its strange imagery and apocalyptic predictions schreiner was fascinated by the concepts of the end of days and the arrival of the anti christ but despite shriners deep immersion in biblical studies. She hated her religion. She disagreed with much of christianity and brandon herself a nonconformist becoming the black sheep of her family but sherry shifted her biblical prophecy studies to the side while she focused on higher education she dreamed of pursuing a career in television news broadcasting
We Gather Together - Creating an American Thanksgiving with Denise Kiernan
"So denise. I want to start by asking you to cover the early history of thanksgiving were all taught. From a very early age that the pilgrims landed in plymouth and shared a feast with the native americans living in the area. How close is that accurate. What's so interesting about thanksgiving as we celebrated versus thanksgiving as it has been on this planet for much longer. I'm always fascinated about how traditions and practices evolved the concept of gratitude and giving thanks has been around basically as long as humans have walked the earth. The word thanksgiving and even the practice of thanksgiving has been around for centuries before even conception of the united states of america. Yes the pilgrim's did land at plymouth. Yes the pilgrim's did have a meal with the woman. Og indians was. That proclaimed a thanksgiving now. When thanksgiving became a federal holiday in the united states of america was that event singled out as the reason for establishing that holiday. Now i want to be clear. I am not putting anything out there. That other people haven't said for a while and what's really interesting. I think is that every year. You'll see these. Hey here's the real. This part of thanksgiving and i think part of the reason. Is we tell these stories. We tell this. Essentially two kids in school and then later on when they get into high school or college or whatever we don't necessarily re contextualised and give them the full story so every year it's almost necessary that we keep trotting these things out and contextualisation of history is so important to really kind of look at everything that went into a particular event and thanksgiving again. Like i said you know. I am not the first person to come out. And say yeah. That's not exactly how it happened. But what i'm interested in. And what was one of the linchpins at making me want to do. The book we gather together was the ageless. Timeless concept gratitude view stevens. I'm and author here in madison wisconsin. And i'm thankful for men. Women working press in use of the people. The you don't have a great thanksgiving. There is an alternate true factual story about thanksgiving and gratitude and harvest festivals. And all of those things. And how. The actual holiday came to be in america and evolve and erica so i thought was an alternate entry and wouldn't that be fun and i'm interested. How thanksgiving celebrations changed in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. So a lot of what thanksgiving is rule out of things like harvest festivals. Which again go way. Way back thanksgiving's were often religious practices in various parts of the world. You would set aside a day sometimes for fasting and humiliation as they would say to give thanks for could be particular event. When i was working on we gather together. I came across some really interesting articles including some archives from the atoms stanley. john adams. John quincy adams. Abigail adams and john adams writes in his diary thanksgiving for the repeal of the stamp act. So like that was something. You would have a thanksgiving for declare thanksgiving for thanksgiving's for various wins in battle or days of general thanksgiving or like. I said fasting and humiliation so those sorts of advance existed outside of north america. What we now consider the continental united states they existing europe and those traditions were obviously brought over when people came over but the concept of having days set aside for saying thank. You is something that goes back a very very long time. Tell us about. Sarah josefa so sarah of a hail was so compelling to me because she was a young woman born in the early nineteenth century actually of the eighteenth century. She had no formal schooling but her parents instilled in her a deep deep love of reading and learning and she was obsessed with the written word. She married a man who shared her love of all these things. They used to have study hour together in the evenings. She lost him fairly early on in their marriage and so she was a widowed mother of five children and because of her desire to write ended up becoming one of the most influential editors in the nineteenth century. She edited to popular women's magazines. The american ladies magazine and then go. Jeez ladies magazine which was one of the most popular magazines in the nineteenth century. And just to be able to do that to me whether thing but what really moved me about her was that she had all of these things that she needed not wanted but like needed to do for herself and her children but she still found time to raise money for people who have less than she did and to bring people's attention to causes she thought worthy and her ten city was just. I mean seriously. I was interviewing her thinking good. What have i been doing with my time. You know how i feel like. I'm talking to her. You know when. I am interviewing her. I'm looking at what she wrote. I'm looking at what she was quoted as saying. I'm looking at the book she put out. I'm looking at the end. Policies that she curated

Why the Treasury wants its money back
"There are days of which this is one when we are obliged by the news to get just detached down in the weeds so we will because we have to. But we'll do it gently back in march in the cares act. Congress authorized the treasury department to let the federal reserve us about four hundred and fifty billion dollars to fund. A bunch of fed lending programs programs that would and remember back in march and april. The fear factor was pretty high in this economy. Right these programs would stabilize credit markets.

Like in a minute but first marketplace abbreviation shore with what exactly these programs did in different ways. These programs all allowed the fed to get down and dirty in the mud of credit market so for example a couple of them allowed the fed to actually buy corporate bonds another loved the fed to buy short-term bonds from state and local governments another allowed to indirectly by up car loans and student loans they essentially stood there and said you know we'll be a buyer of these things will support these markets yousef obasi is global market strategist at stone ex. Now the reason we care that the fed could buy these securities. Is that for a while. They're in this pandemic. It was looking like nobody else would and if nobody wants to buy up for example loans. People aren't going to get as many loans and loans are what kept some businesses. Live and local governments functioning. You're talking about essentially the entire credit markets could've yearly froze if the fed didn't step in with these facilities the fed supported credit market so credit markets could support people.

Covid Milestones: Eli Lilly CEO on Antiviral Approval & Pfizers FDA Application
"Corona virus cases are hitting new highs in the united states and the cdc is urging the country to keep thanksgiving celebrations small. The recommending americans spend the holiday only with people who've been living in their households for the last fourteen days which means no military personnel. Who plant to come home and no college students back from campus. And this week amid it. All california governor gavin newsom issued a curfew between ten pm and five am for all nonessential work and gatherings in most of the state and the order will remain in place until at least december twenty first perhaps even longer but some good news today as well visor and its partner. Biontech are submitting their obligation to the fda for emergency use authorization of their covid nineteen vaccine. This would be the first covid vaccine that goes through the regulatory process. Here's becky the fda's review process is expected to take a few weeks. Advisory committee meeting on the vaccine is tentatively scheduled for early next month. If it's approved some americans could get their first doses in just about a month's time earlier this week study. Data analysis showed this vaccine to be ninety five percents effective and that's incredibly impressive. Let's bring in meg. Terrell she's got more on this good morning. Good morning becky moving incredibly fast and a really historic milestone this morning the first vaccine to go to the fda for covid nineteen to try to stop this pandemic. So we're going to see this regulatory process. Really play out over the coming weeks. We should here typically the way this works is the company alerts the world when the fda has accepted an application and set a date to decide on the drug. We're in a pandemic of course so those dates are not going to be normal. And the communications might be different to we. Might hear from the fda Either the decision timing that they might be looking at and especially about when they're gonna set that advisory committee meeting to discuss this vaccine. That's when outside advisers get together dig apart all of the data around The vaccine the safety the efficacy the manufacturing and talk about also how this should potentially be approved for the market. And it's possible. We will see an application from dern. They said within weeks So we should see that soon. Too and so the expectation that i heard was that the fda had asked those outside advisors to set aside december eighth ninth and tenth three days to potentially discuss. Both vaccines Now dr john taurus from nbc had the fda commissioners steven hahn said scott gottlieb. Stephen hawking on with him yesterday in a facebook live. He asked him about those dates. Any no he said. The fda was going to be flexible. He wouldn't confirm that they had asked them to set those dates. And so we have been hearing since we reported those dates a lot of people sort of saying. Why is this going to take so long So we will have to wait to see what the empty actually does In terms of scheduling that meeting. They do need time to go through the application themselves very carefully. Prepare the documents the committee and then the committee will discuss it and we do expect the fda decide extremely quickly after that meeting Whether to green light this market and then pfizer in biontech. Say they are ready to go within hours after that That green light to start shipping. This guy's yeah. That was one of the things that really caught my attention this morning. The idea that within hours they'd be ready to start shipping vaccine and getting it out there and that brings up the question of how we do that. How do we distribute this. Where does it go. How do we determine who gets it. I never the states have been working on plans along with the federal government to try and figure out how much each state would get. But how does it work. We do even know. Do we have a real game plan for who gets what. When and how we know part of that. So operation warp speed an eighty just secretary alex as are held. A briefing about those plans are earlier. This week And essentially what would happen after. The fda gives the green light if it does then. The cdc has an advisory committee as well that would meet to make recommendations about. Who should get this vaccine. I if there are two vaccines if there are any differences in them you know which groups should get which dosing of that stuff So that's expected to happen extremely quickly. And then the cdc makes recommendations about how much each state should get Secretaries are based on population. We also know of course that because supply will be so limited that there are going to be prioritized groups. Healthcare workers are expected to be at the top People with underlying health conditions that make them more severe. More vulnerable to severe disease will also be at the top so We'll see how that gets allocated to the states based on what. The group recommends

"Be cast in the walking dead and then each of the major films that he has made since plus much more and so without further ado. Let's go to that conversation. Stephen thank you so much for joining song. Podcast great to have you things for having absolutely always begin on this podcast with just a few basic biographical details so for folks who may not know. Can you share where you were born and raised and what your parents did for a living. Yeah I was born in seoul south korea. We immigrated in nineteen eighty eight right before the seoul olympics. My mom told my dad not to do it to wait until after the olympics to sell their house. But my dad is Ambitious man's and impatient and so we left. And then i think if i remember correctly housing market skyrocketed so Career became a massive gdp entry. But yet we immigrated in eighty eight and then Founder way to canada. I in saskatchewan and then after about a year there remained. Are we done to michigan. And then. I was raised in first downriver taylor michigan and then we moved to the suburbs of detroit in troy and that's kind of where i spent most of my childhood and did your parents practice the same type of work in korea that they ended up doing north america yet so my mother was a homemaker. Father was architect actually in korea and he told me that he took a business trip in the late seventies and he saw minnesota and the expansive land That it had and he made a decision than in there that he wanted to move to america and so here. We moved to america and He actually ended up starting from the bottom working at my uncle's Gene in clothing store until he built his own business. Doing a beauty supply now. When you came to north america your name was not yet stephen right. So how did that come about well. My my my name was is hung up. And when i came over here my parents didn't know what to name me and so the story goes at least how they tell it is that They met a doctor in canada and his name was steven and that was enough for them. So yeah so. I guess you know reading as much as i could about you to prep i. I don't get the sense that it was a very diverse school that you came into when you came to the states but that there was sort of a polar opposite experience at church where you know maybe that was a bit of a refuge and as you've looked back at things you've i've seen a number of times use the phrase inherited trauma to sort of describe beyond whatever you were feeling that what anyone would feel from moving at four or five years old. There was maybe a little more gravity to the whole situation. Can you explain for people who aren't familiar with what that term might mean or how would apply to a person who's coming from korean background. Just what you think came with you when you arrived. Sure well i don't i. I'm definitely not any type of authority on any of this stuff. But i will say what i seem to be uncovering for me personally in larger amongst peers regardless of culture really is just this idea that you pass down epigenetics you pass down you know. Circumstances of prior generations in in regards to korea The war was so massive. The the war broke families. The war decimated not only by splitting them but also like the subsequent aftermath just decimated people and and and kind of the rebuilding of korea also in some ways made families dive deeper into the middle class struggle. Of just you know. The father goes out to work in. The mother stays home to raise. The kids There was a submission to that. And perhaps that's everywhere. But you know when i think about the ways in which i wasn't able to communicate emotionally with my parents and then As we open up over time in age and they admit to me about how they weren't able to talk to their parents even more. So you know those types of things and physical probably genetic things passing down Just kind of carry with it The story of our people's history and specifically my family's history in so yeah it's been interesting to be. Perhaps the the first generation that is getting a real crack at stopping the cycle or at least healing to some regard. My parents both came from farming families. And so you know. When i hear my dad tell of his past. He doesn't he doesn't he has really disparate memories and I don't know if he's able to go deep into them. And you see. There's a lot of repressed emotion there in so yeah. Those things kind of trickled down interesting. Well eventually you go off to kalamazoo college in kalamazoo michigan home of the great derek. Jeter and now you as well And i wonder if you can just describe what you imagine when you showed up there that you're four years there and maybe beyond would look like and then what happened there that really shut that up. You know i'll be honest with you. I wish i wish i had better memory. If i'm being honest with you sir. Like i sometimes still in disbelief at the way that my life has penned up to this point and maybe maybe the benefit but also that dysfunction is that. I'm really good at like just telling myself things. We're all fine but i'm sure if i look back. There were many moments that that weren't in fell a little bit more perilous than i remember But you know when. I think about college you know. All of my friends were going to university of michigan or michigan state or Getting into ivy league schools or you know just kind of doing the classical path. And for me. I remember my grades. Weren't good enough to get into my dream school which at the time northwestern. There's no chance. I was just too terrible of a student and i was. It was risky to even apply. I was scared to get rejected from university of out of fear of laying down everybody in my ecosystem and exposing myself and my grades So i remember going to school college fair and this woman any robertson i think that's her name She was just at the end of this long hallway at the small booth for kalamazoo college. And i'd never heard of it before. And i locked eyes with her and she was just like tell me to come in. I was like okay. And i walked over. There got a pamphlet. She was so sweet. I dunno something drew me to her and that table. And then i decided i was going to go to kalamazoo college partly because i thought that i needed to make an alternate pivot in order to not put myself up.

"I just got fired from madman where I was Weiner's assistance. As people on I've been to they all get fired and I was and I was trying to find out what my next was. In the studio system as an assistant, it's it's very easy to lose track of like the creative joy than brought you into this industry, the goals and so. And like you know I had a vision for like a time, this was. At the time leading man. At the time that I was reading the a leading man screenplay. There are a lot of offensive racist things going on in in millions like Jeremy Lin was start starting to take off then like people were making fun of him. Talking about his penis is and like all these really degrading things and A. Two broke girls on the air. That really degrading Asian character thought NBC show. was on all this terrible anti-asian stereotypes where we're starting to surface, and I was like. Asian men need help and I need to make a show about I need to make a movie about what's happening to us in how degraded and I had a lot of Asian American actors at the time that I wanted to tell their story, because as hard as it was for me to get ahead in the industry, like I couldn't imagine what it would be like to be an actor, and so I, I wrote a screenplay about an Asian American actor, trying to out stereotypes. And, trying to get that three dimensional romantic, leading role and I wrote it back in two thousand. and. We went into production in two thousand thirteen, and then it came out. In two thousand thirteen in two, thousand, fourteen and twenty, fifteen played a lot of the major Asian film festivals, opening and closing night centerpieces, and it was. It was really great to get that conversation out there. To to let people know that this is a problem we needed to do something and you know a couple years later it's. I'm not taking credit for it, but I'm taking credit for being part of the conversation to get better Asian representation out there and like now we have crazy, which Asians and that is has the potential to change the landscape. I hope we keep going with that. Yeah I become a regular watcher of AQUAFINA nor from Queens. How is that, oh? It's it's really. At first it's a little jarring because of the way the humor happens. But you know I've had long on here and this is you know after he'd already shot this and and so. Even just seeing the the acting chopped beatty. Who was finishing up mister robot and being the white rose. WHO has this? You know gender fluid Shit, you know. Very intense. Character. Being the straight single dad widower, dad of of Aquafina and so believable. And the granite, and and it's really funny. I also binge watched Kim's convenience, right? Another great Canadian Sitcom, but again these these are two sitcoms that are just dealing with. Not Typical, but but just Asian American or Asian, Canadian life, and bringing in things Kim's convenience, they go to the Korean. Church Presbyterian Church and all the drama. They're like oh my gosh. Some of this holdings a little bit. But then Aquafina definitely you could see. She's written in. Her Sitcom is so funny. And you know she's got the world's big vibrator ever seen I. It's like the size of a baseball bat. Hilarious it's Hilarious, and and and yet you know some of the different themes, and then bowing Yang is her cousin in this right, so it's neat to see him other than a few sketches on Saturday night live. Right yeah, so yeah Kudos to you being part of that wave and I want to say. I want to say Damn. You Steven because I was tracking the character a G. Q. that that was so wonderfully acted by jockeying. Great all my God love him stuff, but. Quickly after after a leading man made, he got to play, he was the lead in a Singapore television series, so he finally got. After are moving. A leading man made me so happy well, he deserves it. He deserves it. You know, but I must say Damn you because as the story writer. About the last twenty percent of the of the movie, all of a sudden, you're changing my opinion about his character. Yes. Right because! I show. I brought my daughter back in after we did the falling age. I've run into the the the thing where they these prescreened the episode of the Poo Poo, platter thing right, and then, and then the director panel thing and how she Q. Confronts Him, because that's the voice of my daughter A. She's totally there right, and so like. Yes, yes, he's standing up. He's speaking out. He's putting them in their place. And by the end of the movie is like. You know he he's. He's complicated like he is, he's right. He did a really shitty hang. He didn't because I didn't understand why he was circling those women's pictures until and then you know that whole woman that the more heavy set woman that they ran into you in the restaurant that that was one of his prior and I'm like. This dude is very scheming, he he. And, so it doesn't really hit the fan. It doesn't really come clear till near the end, but I proceeded the writing of that I thought that was so clever. Because you strung me along especially as someone who knows a lot of an had guests on who are part of that whole. Trying to get beyond stereotyped roles. and. He's such a champion, right? And such he such a third when it comes to that. So many people so many actors make compromises and immoral compromises and their quest for their careers and it's. Weighing it's about wing morals. It's about weighing the goods versus the pad, the fits and G Cues Calculus. He thinks that he can do more good in being that leading role, but he'll do anything he can to get there and it isn't until he he. He hooks up with the other woman at the end.

"Ken Fong. Welcome to episode number two hundred and forty seven our special guests this week during pride month is Stephen J Kong Stephen is a taiwanese-american who was born and raised in Virginia Beach Virginia. He was very much growing up a closeted gay young man, who was a very active member of very conservative Chinese shirt, there in Virginia Beach, and this continued on through college who's very involved in campus, ministry and Bible Studies, and so and so forth, but eventually as you will hear in this episode He kind of figured out his sexuality, and he came out of the closet. He has the distinction of actually getting married early in this pandemic and again you'll get a chance to hear that story. he is a writer. But, also a filmmaker director. In Two Thousand Fourteen Policy Mike listed him as one of six Asian American filmmakers shattering America's agent film bias. He's funny. He's a bright and he's very engaging and I. Commend to you the conversation that we had. Couple things on my mind. This week as I. Put my thoughts together for this introduction. Today. I went writing as do on Mondays, most Mondays with my friend and podcast listener. Ashley we both have electric bikes and. Earlier during the pandemic during the shut in with my serious lower back, pain and hip, his pain, I mean I. Didn't I couldn't write for over a month and? It's It's been really great to get out again. We went writing from his home and We decided to kind of retrace our our tracks from last week, and we went all the way to Griffith Park which is. Amazing Park in the center of Los Angeles even has mountain range in at and. We decided to ride our bikes up this long. Really beat up road called garbage, truck, road, and literally garbage trucks use it. And! You know we're. We've got our power on and at the same time you know we're. We're pushing, but because we have this. Extra superpower. We're able to carry on a conversation. So you know there weren't a lot of people out there today we passed a few people. And then there was this long stretch where we didn't see anybody. Hiking or biking until up ahead we saw. These other two cyclists and they were all kitted out in jerseys and. And the you know the shorts and they're writing nice bikes and. You can tell that they were putting their effort into it. And you know we were just gaining on them and eventually. We caught up and passed them. It turns out that one of the cyclist recognized Ashley. From a group right that they've both participated in and so we got up to the Griffith Observatory and. Obviously! We got there before them. And then they arrived and these guys. You know they're older than both of us. One is seventy. The other ones seventy-three. They're in great shape I can't imagine. Grueling it would be to. A ride that. Long, UPHILL! Climb with non powered bikes okay. So, I was talking to the seventy three year old and he said. Hey you know what I'm seventy three I've been writing since I was thirty eight. I'm still used to younger people. Passing on long climbs like that, so you know that doesn't bother me at all, but when you guys passed us. On Bikes, and you guys not only past us, but you guys were just chatting away. You're having this conversation and that's never happened before and I was just I was just devastated. Until yelled. Hey, we're on e bikes. So anyway, I I thought that was kind of funny that. It's it's the fact that. The extra power that we have because of these electric motors in addition to our own peddling. GIVES US A. The the wherewithal able to actually hold a conversation all the way up to climb, whereas normally when you're doing under your own power is just like. It's all you can do just to breath. So. Hats off again to those guys. Almost ten years older than US and they're doing it under their own power, but I'm not trading in my powered bike for nothing and nobody. The other thing that's on my mind is. This week. The Friday at the end of this week is actually a scheduled meeting when my old church where used to be the senior pastor they're having their scheduled typical monthly meeting, and one of the things on the agenda for them is to decide now that it's been three years whether or not they believe it's okay for me to come back to the church just as a lay person you know. And You know in some ways when they first told me We're not gonNA. Have this meeting until three years from after you retire man that seemed like a long time, but here we are. Just days away from when they're actually going to have that meeting. and. You know my my feelings about it as I've shared a little bit before. This last year. Has Really changed. I, think before. The events of this year especially finding a church nearby that we enjoy. I think I would be in on pins and needles, just just like waiting with baited breath. What are they going to decide about my future? But now you know, it's just like I realized. That regardless of what they decide. I have decisions to make to. and. As I hinted at a couple of weeks ago. I just really feel like. It's it's just kind of a nonstarter for me if I'm going to show up anywhere anywhere. Where my very presence, a causes raised eyebrows or People to Huddle and need to have meetings and stuff I mean I. Understand. In this case, circumstances and conditions I. I was the senior pastor there for almost forty years. Well I was there for almost forty years, but. Still at this point in my life. I just like being able to show up. Be Who I am. And have people genuinely happy and not feeling concerned or upset or whatever, and in my own little way this experience a has. Especially this pregnant. This year is just give me a tiny taste of what my lgbtq friends. Especially those who like to go to church. They have to deal with all the time and That's that's no good night. That's that's a nonstarter so. I'm grateful that I've been able to. Have just a little bit of a taste of what that's like. 'CAUSE, it sucks. If you've never. Had An experience like that regardless of what we're talking about sexuality ethnicity politics. Marital status. Age. Unit name it right. Socioeconomic Educational, if just showing up as who you are. Causes People to have meet and talk about that. That's just no good. And I get it, life can get complicated, but. They gym now. I think life is a lot simpler. And as lgbtq friends, whose Christian said to me, you know I'm just tired of people having opinions and being bureaucratic in needing all these things that people in groups tend to do.

We just heard part of a song from it will continue after this short break. I'm Michael Silver Blunt this bookworm. And I'm talking with Steven Sater about his book. A young adult novel Alice by heart which blends the reality of analysis in world. War Two an alice in wonderland but this book almost by heart by Steven. Sater has pictures. Mostly of children. In the underground stations hiding out during the blitz sleeping in hammocks over the railroad tracks their astounding. Pictures Did your knowledge of these pictures procedure writing. Yes wow I I began learning about the pictures while doing research for the play. So it didn't proceed my conception of the play or my work on it or my setting it or my Jesse and Jesse and I wrote the book Jesse Nelson It didn't proceed our work on the show that we were. We were actually commissioned by the National Theatre of London and when we were there at one point working on the shaw bomb went off in a tube station and I thought well this is our world this terror on this uncertainty were living with. I'm afraid I fell in love with Alice in Wonderland Lewis Carroll for the same reason. You're Alice did. It helped me to escape from life. Life didn't strike me as being very interesting now. Nonsense invention imagination. Those were what I went for. I was more likely to read Charles. Dickens during the great expectations period more than the later Bleak House. I was more likely to read. Aristotle phillies than Sophocles. I loved the nonsense of invention and all of my life until very recently reading was helping me pursue my desire to escape Lewis. Carroll was another not trying to escape from life. Who's most exciting moments had to do with a certain golden afternoon in which he was rowing alison her sister in a row boat on the Oxford River. The marvellous thing when you tell me about falling and earning ancient Greece in that extraordinary bed your turn twice a day right now. I was turned every two hours through the night and through the day. Well I'm sure you know that the person who wrote the first major dictionary of Ancient Greece was Alice's father. It's by little and Scott. I do know yeah. I figured you had to so Alison. Wonderland's father gave us the Greek dictionaries true and for me. That's part of my escape into other worlds for you. Given Spring Awakening and Alice by heart. You're more interested in people growing up and becoming serious. I'm more interested in the or was in the terrible effort to remain foolish. The right observing. Full Mush Subiaco. We all run away and Alice certainly in Carol's vision of her was a runaway. If when you're reading Alice by heart and you should. It's very different kind of book than Allison Wonderland but when you read it. Read Your Alice and repeated in the version called the annotated alice tell you another mathematician named Martin Gardner tells you all the hidden secrets. The anagrams the hidden jokes and you. You're Georgia trump's open at how much a writer is taking care of in his attempt to evade reality in your book. It's the bullets. And she has to live in it and her best friend. The white rabbit is about to die and she has to let him. It was very exciting to me to go into Alice by heart largely. Because it's not my Alice. It's a book it's textures are not surface textures. It's It means to penetrate whereas Lewis Carroll is a man of the surface. He May let Alice Fall. Down a Hole. That hole is anything but sexual. She grabs jaws of Marmalade facing in the in that. This is an attempt to make an alice for a generation of people who want to hear more about maturation. Yeah Hi leave again leaving childhood behind it confronting grief and loss and what it means to grow up but it's also about in being a book about a book and what a book can mean to. You. It's about how book can help you through. Those hardest times in how beloved Childhood Book Can Stay With? You all your life that you don't have to leave it behind but that you read it in a different way you take it with you and you read it now. It means different things. You said several times that your father I have I am. How does how old are your children? My children are now in their early twenties. Have you encourage them to leave childhood? No I think of anything I I remember. My son's for sleepover was like the satisfied in my life growing up. All I wanted was for my children to remain young. Germain children but I think I've been very President MY CHILDREN'S LIVES. I think I'd go through their struggles with them so I don't particularly push them toward greater adulthood. I think I had some of my shelter taken away or felt I did yes ills. I thought it was kidnapped for me and so I think I yearn for something that maybe I didn't have. Yes no that I can understand that. Because you see my salvation. I grew up with my grandmother. Living in my house. She lived to be over a hundred years old several years older and she was born in Russia. She didn't speak English. I would speak to her in English. She would talk to me and Russian and yet and we'd play hand games games with each other's fingers And sing songs in Yiddish about those fingers that she taught me and we played what you call cat's cradle which she in Russian yiddish called L. Battle we play with string and so that was what I wanted. I didn't know that I'd get to grow up and be a bookworm. I mean it's a great privilege. It's a great honor and a great surprise and I'm sure you're surprised by how you've grown up to growing up at all. Yeah growing up at all is such a marvelous and inexplicable mystery. I remember I was just. I'm working on a original musical television series right now and it's based on twelfth night and I was talking to my mother about it and she said you know if you've been you've been dwelling on that story a long time. I thought she meant the seven years. The show had been in development but what she said was. It's your mind me. Of course I remember it when I was young because I didn't go to school. I really was kind of home sick or I was in hospital and she was taking. She'd gone back to college and she was taken shakes. Of course she would read me Shakespeare. Oh yes and so. That's what I heard. That's what I dreamed of and I I don't know how are when I grew up or if I have I've been talking with Steven Sater. He's the author of Alice by heart and he wrote Roberto for the musical spring awakening. I was very much pleased to read a good book.

"By heart and it is about. It would be like for a young person. Also named down was to read Allison Wonderland during the blitz in London. She has a friend who introduced her to the book. A guy who she was friends with from the age of six who she most attractively met in the Giraffe House in Regent Park and he introduced her to Alice in Wonderland and from that point on all the way up until the dropping of the bombs. They acted out Alice in wonderland when playing together. So this is a young adult novel Alice by heart which is a novel about reading and about reading books that alter your life and your heart and your mind and your language this boy who she was in love with in the way of passion not sex from the age of six now has to burke losses. He is dying and he's down there in the underground station where people are hiding out during the blitz. He's input into seclusion. Red Cross. Nurses are tending to him and two other children. Alice Spencer is She casts them in her mind as the Cheshire cat. There's a Red Cross worker. Who's like the Red Queen? There's a doctor who speaks in Latin diagnosis words and he reminds her of Humpty dumpty and his analysis of Jabra walkie so she's living underground the way Alice did in the first version. Lewis Carroll was probably my first love and Steven. Sater was led to this book by producer. I believe because having written about teenage passion in Spring Awakening and having revolutionised certain kinds of musical theater. It was suggested that he like many others. Take on the opportunity to do something theatrical with our yes. These adaptations will get one aspect of Alice. But as for being adaptations of Alice in Wonderland and through the looking glass they fail. My Guest Steven. Sater has not attempted that. This is an experience of a girl who has experienced homeless. Who's been marked by hours? And now she is in the blitz during World War. Two trying to escape back to wonderland when it was first proposed to me to adapt allison wonderland. I thought it was such a terrible idea for the because the book is such a series of almost hallucinatory encounters these visitation these phantasmagoric visitations. Let's say on the cipher like British young British woman. She has no real character. She has nowhere Arcturus no objective and I had spent eight years adapting spring awakening. Which is you know. The first great German expressionist play and learning by introducing songs. How we WANNA go on journeys with these characters that the songs take us into their hearts and minds spring awakening by the Great Franz Vehicle and author of the Lulu play which turned into a fantastic opera person. Who did vote trick? Um It's part of the history of German literature theatrical literature at its most bizarre perverse intense. What led you to say okay. I'll do alice when you might have gone onto Lulu. I have often thought of going onto Lulu and I love Alban Berg's I love that opera so much that I tread lightly around it books meant everything to me and I'm saying this is someone I know who I'm saying this to. I was very ill as a child. I was confined to bed. I was confined to my room. Books really were my world. They marked my life and I just thought what an opportunity to create a show about what literature can mean in this dark time in our nation. I think we have to reaffirm the power of the imagination and try and reignite wonder in ourselves That was the spirit within which I took on the show which became an eight year journey of its own for five years into that journey. The producer said to me. What if you created a book to China that is terrible idea? I'm not gonNA write a tie in book. And he said you know but like a book of pictures and the moment he said it. I just thought of you know what is use of a book with Pictures Conversations. He and I began to think of a book in conversation with all these other books that I'd love this histories centuries of British literature that met so much to me that classics that I met so much man what a book made what a book can contain of Culture Lewis Carroll who wrote Alice in Wonderland Name Lewis Carroll whose name. He was a math teacher and rector. I think Reverend His name was trawls lot would because he had a starter this dude and he would say Dodo Dodge. His students called him Dodo. And there's a Dodo. Allison Wonderland down in the underworld bought by accident. Because he was telling stories he liked young girls. He liked to photograph them. There are people who have their suspicions but he seems to have been entirely innocent but if people have a different way of thinking about it that is also a possibility but there is a Dodo and there are the characters of Alice who are now down in the underground and the Tube station during the blitz. And they're being classified by our Alice. Who is not just a reader? She's a memorizer. Y'All she knows Allison Wonderland and the truth is that Allison Wonderland is magical accident. There are chess games and puzzles in it. There are anagrams and there are a word games. Their a word puzzles in fact. It's a huge accident. Allison Wonderland is the book in English Literature. That anticipates James. Joyce in some ways. The first book that relate Martin changed my life. This is an as an older young man was was ulysses. I was at Washington University. I was studying with gas was like a mentor to me at that time me. Mcguinness was a philosopher novelist as well yeah one of the best literary. Sas We have the author of what I think is the greatest book to have ever been published in my time the tunnel and books of essays on Literature Short Stories. I mean he's he's God he only died a couple of years ago and we live in morning yes but he was my teacher. Yes and he We really hit it off in a profound way. Way I'm guessing I and I had a nice dead classics with him. I studied philosophy with him but he was also the person who introduced me to Boras. He was the person that introduced me to Cortazar. You know and Rocca But I in the middle of my Leno at the end of my sophomore year I was trapped in a fire. I was on fire. I had to jump a third story balcony to escape and prior to that I had spent the entire semesters studying ulysses and had written a version of ulysses you know what I thought was twenty years. I was in one thousand nine at the time. I thought I had the Hubris but I thought I could take. What choice did to the Odyssey and I could do that to ulysses and write the story about my professor and me. Wow and I wrote this work in twenty four chapters and I. It was my sumer and it. It burned up in the fire and burned nearly burned. You Hunt to Jim. I had to a newly per shattered. Fractured like twenty vertebrae and I was broken and burned and I was laid up on the striker frame which is like an earning board was turned every two hours and I had a page Turner I could turn with my teeth and I. I have to write something that can last and I began teaching and I used to talk. You talked to me before the show about your phone conversations with with bill he called me he would call me in the hospital and I began teaching myself ancient. Greek and I learned integrate without would I never studied at him? I never learned the form of of choruses the chorus Greek tragedy. There would be no spring awakening because it opened up to me whole possibilities of how songs can function and dramas ulysses has meant so much to me. I brought it to this today. Because it's so momentous to me to be meeting you think your. Alice is the Alice of a girl on the verge of maturing and she's experiencing like the characters in spring awakening a biological change. That wasn't the world of Lewis Carroll. I don't think he understood biological change. I think he understood that God could lead you pass sense into nonsense and then deeper into nonsense and so. I started to buy as a kid. His logic books because there were syllogisms a series of statements that are designed to help you draw conclusions but thereby goal was carol so they have to do with sun dolls and Buju rooms.

"I'm still still processing everything and they put you in a machine to do this and there was a steel wall lower lid and there's a steel wall in front of you like you're on a heart lung machine and that's all. I can see the steel waller could see off off to the side. I can't see what they're doing to me and I'm terrified. I am I am so terrified. It's all starting again the cutting me again the whole you know getting overwhelmed with it and and then I realized that I was stiff his aboard and part of me said that rational national pardon me came up and said Hey. You're so stiff. They're about to cut you. Do you WANNA be stiff when they're cutting. You and I said not a good idea so I said how do I do this not like a churchgoing religious guy that way but I'm very religious in my own way and I said what can I do so I decided to say the Lord's prayer so I said the Lord's prayer and when I was done with the woods prayer I was like okay now. What do I do because I don't believe I can ask for things. I just don't think that God's my butler. You're so I'm going. So what do I do and I started thinking. I said well you know what it was supposed to die. When you're five you were supposed to die when you were six. You weren't supposed to get past ten. You could have died on your seventeenth birthday. They didn't but the way that night they didn't think I'd make it through the night you've we've had. We've had this incredible television career. You married to a beautiful woman. You have a nice house. You have a Pug Lopez all over the house. You have all this stuff to be grateful for war and it's all really been gravy and if this is when it's over I've been giving way more than I should have ever expected and once once I had that and a guy onto that take a lot of sitting there stirring in your from the Lord's prayer to that list I made that list what and a have we didn't have for just going if this is it given how much I've been given I'm okay with it yes and then all of a sudden and this is one of those things in my life. I would normally not even agree with somebody when they told me this but all of a sudden I felt a presence and I felt this warmth this unbelievable warmth and I felt this the most the most powerful feeling of love I've ever felt in my life in Iraq and it just R- and then I heard the chorale I didn't even know existed you know but you know all of a sudden. I heard I mean you know. I heard I heard the you know I heard the chorale and I had tears rolling down my face. Nobody could see it but I had tears rolling down my face of happiness and I I was so filled with love and I so filled with joy so filled with gratitude and that's it from there. Did did you ever talk about what was going on at that moment. I'm wondering it sounds like white. People have described to me near death experiences. I wonder if he were flatlined for a second no no they they were just putting it in the pocket for the water was. I'd never lost consciousness. It was all but it was an incredibly powerful thing and then now that I'm so infused with this gratitude. The gratitude stayed with you out of that experience that add experience. I had been working towards it yeah but I think that somehow I got help and that just and then I realized because because here's something that's really interesting as far as way hospitals are today versus back in the fifties when your children there were no toys. There was no television television. You lay in bed with rails twenty four hours a day. Try doing that for a month. I did it twice and it's it's interminable will actually until I started writing my book. I thought it spent a year in the hospital. Each time while it was only a month and each time was thirty one time I'm in thirty one the other and and you think you have nothing else to do but think and I would think how can I help myself here and I would. I yeah that's where I learned how to disassociate disassociating almost immediately in the hospital. I built the cave I climb into and and I could disassociate associates so much I wouldn't. I wouldn't feel what they were doing to me. It turned out that dissociating that which is not the healthiest thing mentally correct so how'd you gain control over there. I went. I got help therapy trauma therapy looking. MBR Or something or I you know that's really interesting. I went to therapist after therapist after therapist and an and and none of them said that I had a trauma or any one woman Sarah Cinnamon and she goes. You're in trauma you are. It's not that may have been a anachronism of history because around the late nineties so we shifted were suddenly everybody was treating trauma. We realized that's mostly we were dealing with so it was severe for me really was debilitated in my life. I mean you hurt my life a lot. Did you have how did you get drinking or anything like that going. That's no but I I just always assumed and this is in the book and this is one of those things when I wrote what this book. I thought I had to be naked. I had to be if this book was going to have any value at all. I had to be one hundred percent honest and I had to admit things. I didn't want to admit one of the things I had to admit in this book was that destroyed had never been given event where I just kept it turned turned into where I thought it was my fault which is typical child thinking right. My my family broke up part of the reason for grateful guilt guilty of the family breaking up I just carry all this guilt and all the shame can tell you the shame I carried and took a long time and and we did. AMD are one time it was unbelievable really loosened the whole thing right and there's even a lot more stuff now. Now you can access the neuro feedback and stuff all kinds of cool stuff because so many people suffer from this and you know in our in my world. It's what you know because you dissociate appreciate you don't regulate effectively yeah and so you try to regulate from outside your body with drugs and Saxon whatever Tang gliding whatever you were doing the gliding was sort of that in their sure sure but it's all it's always of either and then how people respond to that dissociation. Shen is protein to some people try to pull themselves back in their body by cutting in experiencing other people try to induce the dissociation and make it more intense and then just regulate with substances that kind of thing my my real problem with it was that I never felt. I was any good and I felt like if Tom Anybody knew me long enough. They would find out vigil flawed yeah so I would sabotage everything. I sabotage work relationships. I sabotage I've sabotage Taj relationships with women women that could have been magic and sabotage them. You know it's amazing. I ended up with women. I have now I mean in Bose's sanctum choose walk through fire with me you know and and the book doesn't cover this but I had my second heart. Transplant was a disaster how did here because it's not enough organs in New York so I had to come to. La and there was so much scar tissue that it was they had to my in my second. My first heart transplant my third open heart. The doctor told me he had to hack and saw saw way in and told that Roy dangerous.

Have you know normally that you've you like three Lavar. Large holes right drains. I have five because there was so much blood loss okay so that's bad enough but now they've had me out real. I went on a win on the ninth. I got the heart on the ninth and woke me up on the eleventh after closed me and they closed the woke wilken up because I was getting dependent on the on the vent and you know what that right so yeah so I was getting dependent on event ventilator and when they woke me up because my you know the top ribs of cartilage those were bent back and for three days recent they dry holes into your sternum to wire you closed. I mean it's a really painful thing. They overdosed me on paint kills so so what happens when you're overdosed on paying for you then you stop breathing so they said okay. We have two choices the vet will he'll be dependent so you don't have a garden though or or no painkillers for five day. Oh my God and that's what they did. Oh my God five days of Nope Ninety three from that yes I do.

Operation Changed in a way I never knew could be changed and I had two different doctors. Who's tell me you went through the kind of pain prisoners of war go through worse. It was horrible. It was really horrible. Pain happy said yes and and she doesn't call it. PTSD because it's been ongoing she calls it. I forget what she called. PTSD is usually a single event the kind of thing but like she always compares to she being my my therapist drama like something like that she he says it's more like an onion then PTSD which is tougher and and it's I came out of this thing you know here in La..

"It. You know, Chris Matthews who I don't know. What to say about Chris? I mean, he's in there pitching, right? I mean, he's in there. He's working for his team. Yeah. That that clip actually comes from the new film by Steven k Bannon, my good friend and former former chief strategist for the White House who kind of had an abrupt departure there. Everybody does sooner or later, it's from trumpet war. And by the way, that was produced by five oh, one C four nonprofit group that Bannon setup called citizens of the American Republic and the good news for listeners to the Tennessee star report is that you can go to Tennessee, star dot com and look at the banner that that that features trumpet war. A you. Click on that banner, and you can watch the entire one hour and fifteen minute film. Trumpet war. And that's great. You know, I guess you could probably go on for hours right with that kind of comments from some of the the people on television. Right. I mean, it's it is amazing. Some of the the things that have really been said, you don't you wanna be right though. I think we talked about this. The other day the credibility seems to be out the window now. Right. I mean, that's exactly right. It's gone that direction. It seems to me you'd want to be right. And therefore, no matter what your view is about politics. There's no real value in the media business and being wrong. Is there? Well, as long as the mainstream media outlets are owned by these giant media conglomerates who have a left wing tilt in their owners. That's exactly right, by the way. Just I just want to go back to the trumpet war. Video clip of film that you can watch for free at Tennessee star dot com. If you click on that banner, we have the family friendly version of the film. Which means there are a lot of beeps b. Yeah. I think I've joined which book it was that when Bannon lamp yet had quite a few of those in there as well. So maybe that's that that would be wise to check that out on the website. Especially if you get your family in the in the room, right? But this is only friendly version of trumpet war. All right fantastic. You know, you said that this about the election a little while ago that you know, it it's all about Trump. Then I'm thinking since you said that they may be he's got to pull this thing out. Right. I mean, because otherwise let's say Florida goes democrat because there's a lot of concern about what's happening down there. Although. You know? I mean this one so much advises me with the governor's race. But there's a thought that maybe the the democrat might win the governor's race and Bill Nelson might, you know, actually, hang on and win that Senate race if that happens, you know, what does that mean for like twenty twenty think that wouldn't be a good thing for President Trump? But you know, we don't know that that looks that those two races. Look totally fifty fifty to me right now. Yeah. I mean that you know, and to me that somewhat surprising. I gue- again. And I was just chatting with people about this. Because everyone's interested in it seems to me least I run into about the election when he talk to me about it. It is kind of like the motivation right behind the people going if if if a lot of people stay home you otherwise would would vote for the GOP candidate. Then I think we're serious trouble in in various places, but do you agree or I mean, we gotta get. Well, now, it's a good question. Let's say a couple of things first let's look at the only really contended race in Tennessee. Which is the Senate race we've seen now a trend in the polls. It was pretty much tied for a long time. Then we saw a poll that had Marsha Blackburn up five over Bredesen's. Then we saw another poll two more poles with with her up six and seven then yesterday day before yesterday at Fox News came out with the poll, Marsha Blackburn up nine Amerson college yesterday came up with the poll, she's up eight the trend. I think is very good for Marcia. In that Senate race. And I think and Phil Bredesen's bless his heart. He just he just keeps making mistakes. He he's you know, would would Steve Gill said yesterday in our program. I think probably true over the next four days. The only place you're going to see Phil Bredesen's. Is you going to see a picture of him on a milk carton? Oh, well, you got to be hard to find. He's going to be hard to find. Because every time he opens his mouth. He he puts his foot in it. Doubling down on you know, this fact that we his Al is claim that the that several thousand migrants coming up in this army this the the horde from Honduras the glut from Guatemala, the migrants marching through Mexico are not a national security risk. Good grief to put your MS thirteen folks air, according to the department of homeland security. Every time. He says something it's a mistake. So I I don't I don't see I see the trend moving towards Marcia there. Yeah. I mean, I I could see that in Tennessee, especially you know in in. I guess I'm thinking about some of these other states, Mike point. Yeah. We're Trump is not as popular as he is in Tennessee, where the, you know, the margins more narrow for example. I I would think he's very popular, Missouri. And I and I'm expecting some good things a Missouri on election night, maybe Montana would like to see Montana kind of. I mean, he's very popular there. But the democrat candidate seems to be still doing well, he's the incumbent, but I'm thinking of other states, Georgia Florida, Georgia right where he's not as popular as he is in Tennessee. Well, of course, the Georgia the big races the the race for governor. And of course, the Oprah came in. And you think you'll make a difference? I guess I think Oprah will make a difference in terms of vote. Group of folks will Ferrell's knocking doors in Georgia to. They're not going to help. You think? The elf has arrived. Gracious. But here's the thing. Georgia has is there more movies being made in Georgia? Now, I think than even Hollywood is many of the the movie studios have moved out of Los Angeles in California because of high taxes a lot of the the movie stars, you know, the Atlanta area in in suburban Atlanta and build a big movie studio, south of Atlanta. And so all this influence is going on here in Georgia. There is a bit of move toward the blue MOViN Georgia then. Yeah. Yes. Now more than anything else. And that's the big concern. A lot of people, you know, about this vote next. I have I have some. Some new polling information that's on the most critical set of races around the country are those for the house of representatives. And as you mentioned cook political report says now, it's likely that Democrats will take thirty five to forty seats. I guess which would they only need twenty four to have a majority. So you would say cook political report they've been in the business a long time they've been wrong as much as.
