What's the truth behind Amazonian women warriors?
"From andrine. Mayors the amazon's quote one thing. Everyone seems to think they know about amazon's that the name has something to do with only having one breast so they could easily fire an arrow or curl of spear. That's everything i know about amazon's good news. You don't know anything about amazon's. I think you'll find do truth. Turns out while we've all heard that it is ultimately nonsense. Anyone who's seen hunger games or done any non sausage fest archery knows that the ladies can tuck that jazz enough to not boob up the works for the archaeological record. That'll there are thousands of greek artworks depicting warrior women with both boobs whatever. The the translation of amazon meaning without breast was actually in an invention of greek historian heliconius in the fifth century bc. Wait the word. Amazon means without breast. That i actually did not know a from the greek meaning a as without Maison well basically. He shoehorned altogether. Yeah so maison was really close to the greek word for breasts from which we get modern words memory right okay okay. So a without masan breast put them together and what. You've got amazon. No boobs and quick delivery so there you go but it turns out that was not not a true. Even this is contemporaries called him on that. There's writing in his era where people were just like. Yeah i know him. And he's kind of turkey or are you talking about sir fox news right so it turns out that you can totally have both boobs and still be a bad ass in the field. So the greeks were obsessed with the idea of legendary warrior women so much so that any grecian hero assault would have to face them from hercules. Twit kelly's to the whole lot. They pop up everywhere. Yeah yeah right. I mean you know when you've got a when you've got to fight a lady and prove that you're a big worrier e worrier you look for yourself and in tiffany or diana zena. They often gave the location of the amazons. As the eastern mediterranean on the steps of your asia and indeed warrior graves have been found there and once we invented dna testing accurate bio archaeological analysis. We stop calling them all dudes. Yeah turns out doing a quick recount about one third of those buried with spears or knives or visible war wounds. Were women that's kind of cool. Yeah pretentious us to not think otherwise. We wouldn't want those dainty is to have to throw a spear i mean there wasn't bones in her womb so she wasn't pregnant woman. What else would you do that. No so it turns out that. Today we attribute the graves to the safin nomads. Whose women fought alongside their men well into the modern era. Ooh well okay. No andro match. He did but but less so for the rest of them. Oh well try. That was an old guard joke. Which if you haven't read slash watched you definitely should

Piers Morgan Defends Criticizing Meghan Markle
"Any people are quitting their jobs over it. Okay today daily piers. Morgan is out of work in. Everyone has an opinion yesterday. Peers parted ways with it which airs. Good morning britain and he's not backing down. Here's what he tweeted just today a monday. I said i didn't believe meghan. Markle in her oprah interview. I've had time to reflect on this opinion. And i still don't if you did okay. He added that freedom of speech is a hill. He is willing to die on. Wow we're obviously he's about to. So here's obviously. He's been under fire ever since monday when he questioned megan's claims that she couldn't get help for her mental health. Listen to what he said. Okay let's have the names. Who did you go to. What did they say to you. I'm sorry i don't believe a word. She says megamall don't believe redmi she's five this onslaught against royal family. I think he's contemptible mental illness and suicide these clearly extremely serious things and if they belong to an institution the royal family and they go and seek help they should absolutely be given it. It's not for me to question whether she felt suicide. I wasn't in her mind. I'm prepared to be proven wrong on this. And if i'm wrong it is a scandal. The she went to a senior member of the royal household told them she was suicidal and was told she could not have any help because it would be a bad look for the family. If that is true that person still there should be fired and beat the royal family have serious questions to be answered about. They handled it take several seats. I don't know though. I wouldn't believe if you read the weather. Report sounds like bitter bitter bitter bitter ban. I mean listen. I won't be a friend about this. And i've been very clear on this show i am not piers morgan's biggest fans so there is a little bit biased there. I think that he has said a lot of offensive things over the years. I think he is degraded. Women i think he is has unfairly had a bias against make markle but i actually think and you know it's a long show right. It's kind of like this show. We just they just kind of keep talking. So it's he settled. He said some offensive things where he really acted like he didn't believe her But he's talking about the fact his his point is and i don't know that it became like a clique bay but his point is he doesn't believe that when megan went and ask for help she was told no. That's the part of the story that he doesn't believe and i think that even though it's controversial to say i think as a journalist As as someone in the royal of someone of the royal family and that's what their main bread and butter. That's what they talked about. This with the show is all about. I think that it's a fair question to say like we want to investigate that and find out how that happened. And if that's true someone should be punished but it just goes with peers because he has talked against making markle so many times in the past and he was having a really hard time with andrew. Whenever it's put to the fire about understanding the racist claims completely but convoluted. I don't think that he i mean look. Everybody has an opinion. You're entitled to an opinion. You're also on a tv show so the times my opinion and european will not match and there are a lot of people who didn't believe megan markle in that interview. I don't think that piers. Morgan should be should lose his job or feel like yes to walk away from his job because he said unpopular opinions. And i think we're all going to be in that position at some point where we say something know we might get in trouble for. But that's what we get paid for that punk stuff. We walk in off if you're such a big and bad journalists peers. You should have stayed there with your receipts. He should have sat there with andrew and talked about but you talked about freedom of speech and then when someone has their speech would they have the freedom to say you get upset and walk all that was also show. He knew i'm telling you and my only my opinion. I think that he knew that there was something coming. And he decided to take matters in his own hand and go about it and walk off win. We're talking about a man who lives in london who was defending the crown. This man's going to write a book. This man is going to become a national treasure. He already knows he looks at american. Says okay we have a guy. He might be a politician. He says the most outrageous things he becomes the most powerful man in america. Thank you have another yet. Another star she says 'i -rageous things on instagram. She becomes the most popular. Rapper named cardi. B. has tiffany pollard. She says crazy things on tv.

Royal treatment: Meghan Markle, Prince Harry detail racism, suicidal thoughts in Oprah tell-all
"What oprah stands and the royals refuse to learn about twenty first century celebrity by judy berman. Tell me what your intention is. I'll tell you what my intention is. And let's see if we can align those. Two that oprah explained monday on cbs. This morning is what she says to everyone she interviews before the cameras start rolling in this case she was of course referring to the conversation with prince harry and meghan markle the duchess of sussex that filled a two hour primetime slot on the network the previous evening. The special drew seventeen point. One million american viewers in early ratings that as deadline pointed out adding up to a larger audience than last week's golden globes and september's emmys combined while oprah's collaborative approach to shaping interviews. Has its limitations. You wouldn't want to see an investigative reporter compare objectives with the subject of a damning expose. It proved to be a singularly effective way into the ongoing harry and meghan saga. The couple broke their dignified silence about their reasons for stepping down a senior royals and leaving the uk in an equally dignified special that riveted viewers revealed troubling new details about behind the scenes machinations at buckingham palace and supplied a powerful counter narrative to the one the firm and british tabloids had been pushing also on this morning. Tino brown called the program kryptonite to the royal family. It's like a hand. Grenade although oprah whose production company harpo produced the special and licensed it to cbs. Where a fee reported to be in these seven to nine million dollar range certainly made it look that way. Taking control of the public narrative couldn't have been easy even compared with its treatment of outsiders who've married into the royal family in the past the uk press has been brutal in its coverage of meghan and a one two punch last week a dispatch from the times of london claim that meghan had bullied and humiliated aids. Driving two of them to resign and the palace announced. It was launching an investigation into that alleged. Behavior sunday's interview cast doubt on not only that story but also just about every story that might have originated with the royals. Harry and meghan described an invisible contract between the firm and the media in which the tabloids and their reporters are wined dined and welcomed into the palace for holiday parties to encourage favourable coverage it all sounded pretty sinister. But it's worth remembering that for their part. The couple also has a cozier relationship with oprah than most subjects of the journalists whose profiling them the difference in this case and in the case of everything. That was ingenious about sunday. Special wasn't the framing as the faceless firm came off as having manipulated the media an unseen and thus noble ways and a depiction that jibes with the portrait of the house of windsor. Painted by netflix's mega popular the crown. It's exiles seemed to have nothing to hide. Oprah didn't just disclose to viewers that she knew harry and meghan personally. She opened the interview by reminiscing with the duchess about the experience of attending their wedding. The distinction isn't between tiffany bias. It's between transparency and pass in many ways what we witnessed was oprah's understanding of a shift in how credibility is established and the present versus how it was established three generations ago when the queen was a newlywed. The young elizabeth waited out bad press trusting that her refusal to enter the fray would ultimately vindicate her as the bigger person but we are in a moment when skepticism of the media is at an all time high. The public is savvier than it has ever been about. How public figures manufacture their images top tier celebrities like beyond say preferred to communicate with fans via social media channels. They can control an oprah appeared to realize the value of an open conversation on prime time broadcast. Television was in the ability to create the impression. One that for the record. I see no reason to doubt that. Meghan and harry were spinning the facts so much as they were clearing the air air that the firm would for reasons implied to sell fish if not malicious preferred to leave murky for viewers who feel entitled to know every detail about their favorite celebrities lives and for whom openness is a prerequisite for loyalty transparency. Worked that was due in large part to the power of the story. Meghan and harry had to tell as well as to their unprecedented eloquence and candor on issues of race and mental health. But you can't underestimate the importance of how that story was told that is how oprah managed to align her intentions and those her subjects along with being two of the most famous people on the planet. She and meghan were after all to women of color discussing racism. Gas lighting and other third rail topics in front of an audience of millions from the tranquil outdoor setting their socially distanced conversation to the outfits. They chose a fluey floral for the radiantly. Pregnant duchess of sussex a muted mov for the queen of all media to the calm tone all three participants adopted. Every part of the special felt intentional for a world of crown fans who we know were on. Oprah's mind because the show came up in the interview. It all contributed to a conclusion to this particular episode of the british monarchy. That couldn't have been more familiar. An institution that digs in its heels at any sign of progress or accountability see prince. Andrew doesn't slow the march of time it becomes an artifact.

Finding Connection, Self-Love, And Thriving With Chronic Illness Ft. Nitika Chopra
"Hi everyone. this is tiffany. And you are listening to this. Episode of tiffany and the podcast. When if you are new to the podcast tiffany and you is a podcast chatting with friends. Who are using their voices and platforms to cultivate compassion. Change and creativity. Today i have with me. Nigga chopra who is founder of chronic kahn which is incredible community for the one hundred thirty plus million people who live with chronic illness in the us. High nigga. I tiffany thanks for having me. We ended up getting introduced through nate. Nichols he's a big fan of yours. And by the time you were thinking about launching your online community chronic khan and then we emerged on clubhouse and we've become much better friends since then. I always like starting with origin stories. What led you point of really thinking that cronica needed to be in the world. Well i just have to say. I'm so glad that clubhouse brought us closer together. Because i do feel like it was nice that there were all of these touch point in then being with you and clubhouse has been so special and the way i would start by origin story is that it started when i was probably ten years old and i was diagnosed with my first chronic illness. And so there's so many things. I could say about that journey and i know you and so many of your listeners have been on their own journeys but their bodies but that has definitely been my greatest teacher in my life and so when i got diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of ten i just saw my whole life through that lens. I had it in a very debilitating way. Sometimes people get psoriasis. It's maybe a small patch or in their scalp which is frustrating. For sure but for me i ended up having it covering ninety eight percent of my body and i couldn't really move without severe pain so it was everything. It was the way that i saw everything. It was the way people saw me. And then when i was nineteen i was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. Which just really impacted me in a whole new set of ways. It made it really hard for me to walk without severe pain because my joints were painful before it was my skin was painful and now my joints added to it. So as i'm sure you and so many of your listeners can relate. That was the lens that i saw everything through. I try to be positive. I have a really strong spiritual center and that really helped me through a lot of those challenges but it also shaped me to want to help people. Because i felt like there were not enough resources almost no resources when i was going through all of that that were there to really support be especially emotionally so i'm not a doctor. I'm not a practitioner. I'm a patient so pretend to try to heal people but just that emotional support of like yeah. You know. i've got somebody. That knows exactly what i'm feeling. I don't have to explain to this person. Why i can't walk the five blocks or i need to take a cab or i actually can't help with moving this box or whatever. I don't have to talk about it. It's just like no. I'm not going to do that. And you just move on. there's no heaviness there. So i never really had that growing up so i think that just has a lot to do with the story. Weiss started doing the work that i do thanks for sharing there's a term that was coined by someone in in the disability justice. Face a manguson cheeses the term access intimacy and. It's this idea that when you show up in a place you don't have to ask for permission. People just get it and it sounds like the community that you've created or what you were seeking was some level of that access intimacy was the turning point of really moving more toward advocacy and really wanting to create that community. There was definitely a turning point for me i. I started my career about eleven years ago. And you know at that point. No one was talking about chronic illness or disability or health. Really in the truest sense of the word. There was this health and wellness industry. That i sort of found myself being a part of but truthfully it never was very helpful or felt very supportive. It was just my only option at the time. And so i gravitated towards that i started an online magazine talked a lot about self love. I talked a lot about beauty as it relates to self love. I did that. Threw a lot of media opportunities that i had which was really great but there was a turning point and i would say after the twenty sixteen election. There was just a reckoning that was happening for so many people and myself included and it felt like i thought i was using my voice before i thought i was standing up for people that i wanted to stand up for and for what was right but there was something after that election that made me realize there was so much more that i could be saying and sharing and really it was a refinement process for so many people. If this is going to be this dark where are we going to find the truth. And the light in the midst of all of this and so i really had to go on that personal journey and i spent a couple of years actually in two thousand sixteen twenty seventeen asking myself a lot of really hard questions realizing that i wasn't at all speaking up for the things that i i never talked about my house
Finding Your Tribe In The Clubhouse App Where Your Voice And Your Presence Matters
"Hey you guys welcome to. Yes she's driven podcast. I m here with jiffy accardi and we have been wrapping before. We actually turned on this video. And this is this is this is like one of the bad things that happens when you have really great synergy was someone who provide so much great content before you turn on the podcast and we're gonna see if we can replicate some of that for you so tense. I want to share what it is that you do who you are. I also want to let the listeners know that we are really doing a clubhouse series right now and we're interviewing people who are all over clubhouse freaking out on clubhouse seeing what you like about clubhouse how it might be destroying livens hell how you can actually really use this app away. That's healthy effective and not sure any of us are doing it healthy ineffective yet. But you know we're working on it exactly so Tiffany just share a little bit about your background. And then i'll start asking you some questions about hired how you working on clubhouse absolutely so my name's tiffany elissa cardi and i am in the community building space. So i feel like. I've really found my home on clubhouse as a social media application i run a global movement called gals that brench that brings together women through monthly curious events over happy hour and brunches and We come together to empower each other network. Get to know each other in help. Women find friends in all the transitions of life between having kids and getting married professional working life in all those pieces. You never realize how much you really need your your women around you and whatnot so we have one hundred twenty chapters around the world throughout the us the uk. Australia and canada. And so i spend my time creating all this events in also through this year we've been impacted by covid in doing in person events so been doing a lot of virtual events virtual but clubs in virtual brunches in all the things bringing spy guide. You just sound like us sound like like piece to a woman's heart because they think that all women we need each other and we just don't operate as well without each other. And i think especially a lot of entrepreneurial women which the she's driven podcast is entrepreneurial and men to But the point is is that like. I think it's one of the things that some of us are not even so good about making it a priority and then we wonder why we're resentful or frustrated when it's like we're not making us in our friendships a priority. So i love this chapter. This is amazing. Now talk this yeah. I was moving across the country doing consulting for higher education institutions in. So i would move every couple of years and i find myself in this boat like how do you connect with people and for me as a single young professional. You know i'd get involved in church Unprofessional joined softball teams. And things like that but at the end of the day just found myself kind of in this boat. Where i was like. I need to find my tribe of people in. Why isn't this happening for me. Because i've never had a problem doing it. And i feel like i was actually like a strategy like given to me by god's fires like that i was meant to create this aces and create the table and so it literally started out with like one invitation of like. Okay who do. I know i know five people in all you guys bring one person. Let's go to brunch. Like we'll meet all the incredible women that we known each others lives and then the concept was always invite someone so i was living in virginia beach at the time. Had just moved there a week before we did. This whole brunch concept Because i was consulting back and forth. I was starting to get to know some of the people in the area. We had over forty women that came together just by like everyone invite one person and then that chapter ended up growing to over two thousand women. I ended up moving back to san diego. Later that year someone else moved away. They started chaptered kind of like a joke and then went on to social media and start sharing like. Hey we have We have a chapter in virginia and then within a week we had five different people reach out being like. Oh my gosh. How can i started gals at brunch chapter. And then it's like over the last four years it just kind of like accidental entrepreneurship journey of like figuring out. Okay how do we scale. How do we make this happened in a healthy and sustainable way in also realizing oh my gosh like our generation is truly crying out for more connection in. So it's funny that we're looking back around with clubhouse because i think that's the phenomenon that's happening because we've gotten so driven into the social media world where like a one hundred twenty character status updates. Life is great. You know here's my life whereas like around the table people being and like they're like oh my gosh. Why is the so healing in what's happening. It's because there's a synergy in energy that's happening in just simple connection of coming together and so it's been a wild ride. I might hit. You know like just continuing to grow in figuring out okay
The Changing Economics of Ad Fraud
"The same way that goldman is making a little bit of a new bet and clear. Sky and nitrogen are very security focused. There's a little bit of a new focus for white ops. As well brian i mean you're you're moving beyond just bought fraud in advertising and I interested to learn. I didn't realize this was such a big thing. But i guess it's just because it's not something i focus on that fraud in music streaming for example is a massively growing problem because if you can boost the number of listen than if that's really helpful For for whatever reason you can explain it and so a little bit about that sort of thing and some of the other new areas of focus for you guys beyond advertising. Sure we'll to to tell you about that The expansion that's happening now Obviously take you back to twenty twelve through twenty fourteen win when you and i first met the in the summer of two thousand twelve attracted us to botnets in net. Detection was the officer vacation. That were were the kind of force multiplier behind a variety of different kinds of cybercrimes Secretary that win done in onesies and twosies just be a nuisance become a multimillion dollar cybercrimes when you can scale them up by using home in japan and in the early days in fact if you look at our earliest patents. You'll you'll see that. There is no reference to advertising Were were really thinking about financial services actually It was it was in the pursuit of the investigation into that theory that that bought nets were a critical layer in other ways. Different crimes that we discovered the surprising scope of ad fraud. And that got us curious. We we were wondering how big of a problem it really was in. And so the genesis of that great study with the and Was was not just to raise awareness of the problem marketers. It was actually to just do the the best scientific study we could to try to quantify. Just how big of a problem. This was to see if it was something that we white up your take on 'cause the the founding ninetieth white ops is steph fight cybercrime economically. We wanna take on those crimes of scale and making them substantially less profitable so we should start with the ones that are the most profitable and i. I don't think anyone knew exactly. How big of a problem at really was in in specifically the the botnets scaling fraud. So in we didn't either we really just trying to find out in then that turned out to be a big big problem so it therefore deserved our initial focus fast forward to today I think is that the the whole industry has made remarkable progress The awareness of the problem led to collective action That collective action has led to a number of victories including a remarkable number of of industry collaborations to not just sort of fight off ad fraud but actually dismantle ad fraud operations in so while that fight is not complete I think that we you've really turned the tide in important ways and and so therefore now is the time to expand our reach so we can do the same sort of thing for other categories of victims. How has the tide turned. What are some examples. I guess beyond the greater awareness and collaboration among advertisers and publishers and a new trade organizations companies like yourself. Because collaboration is is great is a great thing but then you always have to think of a parallel. I actually think of fraudsters collaborating. I don't know maybe they have differences. They build their own technology so it almost feels like there are always equal and opposite reactions to action and so of course that's the classic arms race kind of You know reference that everybody makes but where where some specific areas of progress. I'm glad you asked Win win when we started and and and even for the early years afterwards it was relatively easy to purchase traffic for your website. You can just by visitors as visitors. Were on tap. There were wide variety of vendors of traffic The that you could pay via credit card or paypal And just turn on the traffic spigot and with this meant is that websites large and small that wanted increase visitors in order to up just over at more bidding opportunities or maybe to fill special kinds of orders. could could always turn to these traffic sources to fill any kind of order on demand That problem was pervasive and it was widely predicted. When we started that we would not be able to solve that problem that we'd have no impact on it because of a perverse incentives across the the supply chain now. Those vendors are gone It it used to be as easy as doing a google search to find traffic vendors That they weren't even on the dark web. There were many that were simply on the open. Web And would accept payments credit card The the trade and traffic has not been eliminated but it is substantially harder to to buy traffic It's substantially more expensive to to buy realistic looking fake traffic. That'll actually get the by your paid And what that means. Is that ad fraud to those players. Those traffic arbitrageurs ubstantially less attractive crime. It's it's harder to do and and you make less money doing it. So fewer people are doing it the win when you hear talk when you hear kind of cynical talk about arms racists. That'll never and about games of lacombe. Oh that will never end I think those simplistic metaphors miss an important winning condition. Which is maybe. We can't make this kind of fraud. Technically impossible but if we substantially reduced the incentives just make it less profitable. Fewer people will want to play the game And that's been happening. Unfortunately as saying a. The job's not done because while we've we've driven a lot of that fake traffic and traffic arbitrage out of markets and environments. That were absolutely right with broad lake. digital video You certain fraud operations. And even new ones have had just sprung up in In new parts of the digital ecosystem. So so i don't mean to paint an overly rosy picture but but there's simply no question that on an economic basis we've substantially improved the landscape over the past several years.
Candidates Want New York To Suspend "Superspreader" Ballot Petitioning
"I'm David first. Coalition of more than 200. Candidates from across New York are seeking to suspend ballot petitioning ahead of elections this spring. State lawmakers already passed a bill that would reduce the number of signatures required and shorten the time to gather them. But Governor Cuomo has not signed it, and many candidates think more needs to be done. Here's Tiffany Koban, who's running for City Council in Queens.

William Barr Sees ‘No Reason’ for Special Counsels for Hunter Biden, Election
"With President Donald Trump. Outgoing Attorney General William Barr said today he saw no reason. To appoint a special counsel to look into the president's claims of election front or attacks and the tax investigation into the son of President elect Joe Biden things that Trump has really been looking forward to try to prove by the way, because let's face it. The sad reality of this. I don't care what you think about whether or not There was any election fraud or anything when it came to the coverage of the election. The media. Was if you don't believe that the mainstream media is now in Kohut when it comes to what they will and will not report You're kidding yourself. You're a fool. That's all there is to it. They bent over backwards not to report anything that hunter Biden did. I mean, there was a lad, Can you imagine? ALF. I will eventually finish a sentence. Yes. Can you imagine? If Donald Trump Jr or Ivanka Trump or any of the trump Children, even Tiffany If any of them had left the laptop. At a repair shop forgot about it. And then the information that was on one about that was on it about Hunter. Biden came out about one of the trump kids, can you there would have been wall to wall coverage. They would have. They would have preempted the mast singer just to talk about the trump Children like that, But because it was hunter Biden. Not only did they not talk about it, they full on hit it. I mean, when you're not when it's when you've got something like that, right in your face when you've got a practically a full on admission that he is using his father's influence in order to financially benefit himself when there's pictures of him using drugs on a laptop. And you don't do anything about it when there's absolutely no reporting about that. Anywhere but fringe news organizations. I mean, come on. I don't even care what you think about it because you know that if it was one of the trump Children, and that was out there, there would have been like I said, Wall to wall coverage. There would have been exposes. They would have taken off regular programming and gone news wall. The wall there would have been. I mean, you would have been able to avoid it. As it stands unless you had a particular political bent. You would have had to go out of your way to find the actual information about Hunter Biden, So it's It's really kind of disgusting now in its final press conference Mar also broke with Trump in reinforcing that federal officials believe Russia was behind the cyber espionage operation targeting the U. S government government. Trump has suggested without evidence that China could be responsible Bar said the investigation and 100 Biden's financial dealings with being handled responsibly and professionally. He said. I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave. The reason that Trump wants a special counsel is because if there's a special counsel in investigating it It would make it more difficult for Biden to shut it down the way the investigation is right now, if when a Democratic age comes in, they can. They can shut it down and given the fact that pretty easily by the way, given the fact that what I was just saying that the mainstream media would wouldn't even touch the story with a 10 FT pole. If they shut the investigation down. If Biden the points is a ghee and gets in there, and the first thing they do is shut the investigation down. Odds are pretty good. You won't hear about it.

This is the final episode of season one I didn't realize I was GONNA have seasons but here we are, and this is going to be a solo episode doing some reflections on past present and future of this podcast. I have wanted to start a podcast for maybe about seven or eight years and come March twenty twenty shelter in place was beginning here in the US and we were coming to terms with the fact that this at least in March we thought was going to last for three weeks. Then I had heard that it would last through mid May. Now I'm recruiting this in the middle of August I am still quarantining a champ we still don't have a vaccine we still can't get everyone on board with the efficacy of masks. So rewind back to March twenty twenty, I remember her looking back and seeing everyone want to explore different creative projects baking has taken off. The lot of people were thinking about digital contents and how he could just continue to sustain ourselves and keep entertained when we couldn't leave our homes I ended up posting on my instagram I posted an instagram story around if people would listen if I created a podcast and I'm one of those people who I'm just super execution focused less about the words. In the planning and more just about doing I am a doer about doing things if anyone from outdoor voices or has a connection outer voices is listening to this wants to get me that hat that's doing things on it. I would gladly accept it. So I, had heard a couple of other friends use anger and so ended up deciding I was going to record my first podcast episode and that happened with my friend Jean Mafa who's a psychotherapist and now twenty two episodes later we've touched on so many different topics ranging from mental health and social health connected to go nineteen racism both against Asians fueled by covid nineteen and the racism that really woke America and..

"Leading the charge and being really organized. There is a lot that happened in the background that the selection committee didn't see in order to get everything prepared for all of you and then. Then I have to give everyone on the selection committee shadow. Because we received way or nominations than I was ready for and I was nervous. I was nervous that we would be able to get it done, but we did. Full disclosure were in the process where we are finalizing our lists. We don't actually know what is going to look like yet. Alex I'm curious. Were there any surprises as you went through the thirty nominations or the whole process in general? Before I get to that, but I also WanNa give a shout, Kaby such appreciation and gratitude for that amount of organization and I think there's a real beauty in the finesse of of a warm reminder and some healthy follow ups, but you know I was. A little behind. Katie's for for. In terms of surprises, the process itself I, also just on the tip of shoutouts. They didn't conversation with a really good friend in the Kia, who we were talking about celebrating excellence in the black community, sadly and how it's really important to not fall into the trap of capitalist or Or ablest notions within celebrating that Blackman's it's really easy to just focus on people getting certain white standards of successive so just focusing on flagler, getting higher education degrees or a really big scholarships or making a into the business route in certain ways. That really provided a healthy. Adjustment to my lungs when? These things of like it's so easy to think of success as lack. What's the biggest has the most impact what earned the most money who has the most followers? So, reviewing these the some of the surprises were some of the grassroots efforts that disabled people are accomplishing all across the world and thinking it's very hard to. Compare people with these different lived experiences and contacts on a equal playing field I. think you really set up the process well to have some specific questions around not just is there nomination representing disability success, curious with the added context of where there and what privileges or barriers that they're. Experiencing. How does that impact their efforts and what? They're putting forward so? I think it was just really nice to look at that and say well. Grassroots efforts be impacting a few people might not be the biggest global effort, but at the same time Cuban what their community might be facing given that country's history with disability given the a physical access that those people might have to accomplish their goals I think those were things that that were really important for me to remember her as a disabled person trying to model again what I'm saying and celebrate success ultimate. love that one thing that resonated with me is really changing definitions around success now i. just look at myself, and I'm like I like myself, and that actually the biggest the biggest success of. Radical you know? Exactly, and then the other thing you said I'm very passionate about disability employment unemployment numbers have been hovering around seventy percent, still even with the passage of the Ada and I often tell people if one disabled person gets a job, who historically has been unemployed or underemployed. That's a success for our community and I love that framing as well so. All of that said, our plan is to announce a couple of days as a member of the selection committee having seen. A lot of the nominations. Is there a message that you would like d thirty nominees to hear the ones who aren't ultimately selected and then is there a message that you want the honorees? The ones who get selected as the final thirty two here? As well. You've mentioned the importance of communities several times in that really resonates with me, and so I would say to anyone who is nominated that this is a community that you're apart is now you know and I think that that alone speaks to the success that those people have had in impacting people in their lives to to be nominated. They've obviously touched someone. They've impacted someone or or someone's right people to earn that effort to have. Their experience lifted up I. think that that that unequivocally something to hold with pride and. If in the way that things are selective, but a nominee is not chosen. As one of the final honorees I think just remembering that. That impact is unconditional that you've already made and I know for me. Just reading all of these stories seeing all of these different things that you mentioned tiffany right like all around the globe so many different disabilities, some intersections of identities like my heart swelled reading news, and realizing how much people are just triumphant, and how much does ability creates so much beauty in the human spirit and so much resilience and strength and power, and I think that they are already possibility models for people in their lives and people like myself witnessing that. To the people who do get elected I just say like own that really. Take that fire and burned brightly. Sherry your message even louder with more people. The authenticity back you're demonstrating has shown through the Internet has made people who haven't had the pleasure and privilege of meeting new yet excited about what you're doing and excited to really name that for other people to be connected with, and so connect with each other create community with each other really likes share those ideas. Tiffany I love our friendship because I think it's a model of disabled people come together and making each other's ideas. I think that there's a lot of pride to be had all around and I'm really grateful to have been a part of this process. I guess my message. Would you don't need a list to tell you that you matter? And, if you are on the list, I just have to echo what Alex said to shine brighter and I'm watching a show on net flicks right now, and there's a scene in there. where the main character named Peyton and his mom are both running for office in different cities, and he goes to his Mauve and he says mom I need you to stop running and she goes. DON'T ASK ME TO DIM my light. You need to shine years brighter. I left that scene. Because we all have light so many of us within the disability community either grown up with a scarcity mindset or a feeling.

"You're listening to this episode of Tiffany and you. This is your host tiffany you. This is a special D thirty. Impact List Edition, and I have with me. One of our selection committee members. Alex Locust Hey Alex. I'm doing pretty well. Alex's counselor slash coordinator currently working at the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. In addition to that Alex is a community organizer Workshop Facilitator who has organized a lot of workshops around disability justice around the country. So I always liked starting with origin stories. Have you met Rosemarie Garland Thomson. A terms personally. So I have also met her a couple of times, and she said Tiffany. It is so important for us to share these origin stories, because it really highlights diversity within the disability community, so I wanted to start asking you about your disability origin story. However you interpret that. I I think there's some power in our stories. I kind of like to add a low humor, a little thing for everything, and so I've been joking lately that just my left leg never locked in. On this way, there's not a lot of shock or excitement. How kind of! Normal, it felt as a child because that's how my body is in was I haven't really invested a lot in the science of understanding what medical terms would describe it appropriately. Just that's how it was a later in life, thirteen went through amputation in order to pursue more streamlined prosthetics I can. Formally comedies often empty yet, but it was pretty funny. Someone once corrected me I. said I was born. This way and they're like well. Can you really be called ut? really. It's something where this is my body. And I just been learning to love it and adopt Since then, thank you for sharing. We had Dr Victor. Pineda another bay area based disability. Advocate. Who told me that he had? Origin Stories. The one was his first understanding of disability, but So I'm curious if along your own journey was there another turning point to where you really saw and took ownership of a disability identity. I love that idea because for me. My disability identity is so intertwined with my clearness, their queer disabled elders, who I've really learned to view disability as acquiring of the body of clearness also involves many coming outs. There's not one you don't get to come out one time and be done, and so I think that along that idea of multiple origin stories to what I mentioned earlier around being born. This way thing is a child. I feel like I was more comfortable with my disability than other people were I was really happy hopping everywhere? I really didn't take to wearing my prosthetic very often as just a little low pogo stick. And enduring the trauma of an imputation that thirteen, really in a way that looking back, I'm troubled by how that process went about. I really want to trust the best intentions of the doctors and professionals, and of course, my parents who've been unconditional support all my life I also think to undergo such a traumatic surgery. Even if it's someone wants to go through four. Four but the surgical reasons that still a lot for a thirteen year old and I think at that time I didn't have the consciousness around disability. Able Islam justice to really make a sound decision there and so what I believe happened, was I I, kind of homeless regressed in terms of disability pride became really shameful and insecure about my body. It was as if. The medical profession had something's wrong with your body. We have to fix it. And prior to that moment I hadn't felt like anything was wrong. And so I would say that the second coming out or another wave of that was really the liberation of getting crutches and moving away from feeling like I needed a prosthetic to be whole if I'd never had that leg having that added to. To my body always felt other always felt four in, and so I was always itching to get it off at the end of the day I. think that wasn't just about the physical sensation, but the emotional experience so this new era that amid now thanks to the bay area to learning disabilities, civil rights learning about disability justice, but really not just an ease of losing away from. Agendas are the people who sat for my body. But now I have the language in the framework to hang my experiences onto and a pride outside of my individuals, but really like lineage to event to Baraboo slits. There's history. It's not just me grappling with these things s fire and set my intentions to being aligned with people who have really paved the way for the life I'm living now and the life that I want to create for disabled people the Master. That's beautiful. Someone asked me the other day. They said what advice would you give to younger people with disabilities who may be lacking self, confidence or self esteem? And for me, it was rooting yourself in community and I think for you being at the intersection of disability and quickness and being able to have elders that you could turn to sounds like really powerful so I, said community and role models, and being able to have both of those and see yourself reflected back for me as well allowed me to take ownership and pride within my own identities. I know we are living in a covert era, but are there any projects they are working on now that you're particularly excited about? Oh Wow. Yeah, I.

I have with me today. The founder of Impact Strategies Corey Ponder Hi Corey. How's it going? It is going okay I feel like. How's it going these days? It's it's a loaded question. I don't know if you're feeling the same way. No absolutely but I do think that at a certain point maybe a few years ago. I actually told myself that when people ask that question, I'm going to wait around to hear the answer and so I know usually expect people to just say good. Keep moving but I. Really am curious when I ask. How are you doing like really? How're you doing? I love that while I'm doing okay, so Korea Ni- I believe. We met and you can correcting her wrong. Do we meet in two thousand sixteen at starting block on plugs? We did YEP. Okay so Korean. I are both part of starting block, which is a social innovation boot camp for people who were looking to become leaders in the social impact space, and I was part of the New York Twenty fifteen cohort. When did you do it? Oh, we did the same year. Besides DC two thousand fifteen, so probably later in the year I. Think new. York came earlier. Yeah, interesting, participating in Starting Block I was August Twenty fifteen. It was actually the first time that I had started to get more involved in the social impact space, because at that time I was starting to ramp up Steiber, civility, and other things like that so. Starting block has played A. Large role in my social justice journey. I actually remember coming to starting blog because I was looking to shift my life really, but certainly was thinking only about it professionally, and when I came into that space I felt so encouraged to be more active into use my voice more and to build things that I thought were actually good for the world, so they get the Tom all working on a website that was focused on elevating voices of young writers, but Starting block there have been so many ideas that have been..

Be adjacent to proximate to In Solidarity with our neighbors on the streets and do whatever we can to live those values that we will inform what we want to happen. You know a year or two years down. Yeah thank you. Thank you for that All of this I do want to know. What are you doing to take care of yourself? I've been I'm in probably the best shape I've been in like years. It's busy do yoga every morning Suddenly I don't need a yoga class at the studio to do it. I just put on Youtube so doing that. I've been getting fifteen thousand steps in the journal. Every day. I think every single day I I haven't missed a day of capturing my thoughts reflection I do have morning Bible Study So as a Christian it's important for me to kind of stay rooted in the word and you know and have that kind of help guide my day and then just eating healthy and making sure I have at least one or two conversations with friends and colleagues and then the real. This is the real funny answer I gave you all. Oh that's so nice nice for that. Here's the fun so I love Spanish And I lived in Mexico for a year but I have. It's hard to stay fluent when you're you know you don't have all that many friends that are native speakers. Just talk in English all the time so I've always been wondering like how can I stay fluent with Spanish? I I love it on losing the language and not as advanced as I was before and I realized like when I'm eating me on Kinda searching on youtube for different videos or reading articles I need something else. I started watching Telenovelas Mexican soap operas when I do. I put the subtitles on in Spanish. And then the dialogue in Spanish. If I need to what I'm literally doing it's pausing it every like three minutes. Cut writing down what they just said and then put it into a translate box if I don't know the words essentially like doing more damage studies in ten years since I lived in Mexico by watching. These ridiculous telenovelas while I eat breakfast lunch and dinner if I'm not doing like phone call. It's so fun so I'm really wrapped up in some of these shows right now.

"Hi everyone it's tiffany. And you're listening to Tiffany and you today. I have the CEO and founder Miracle Messages. Kevin Adler so Kevin and I met I wanna say probably twenty seventeen or so. We're both part of a really great community called sandbox and we just happened to be on a retreat. Together in Tahoe. I got to learn a little bit more about his work. He's an amazing storyteller and extremely topical to have him on the show today. Thanks tiffany and likewise very inspired by your work and would agree. A podcast acknowledged that this episode is actually called. Tiffany and Kevin. I liked that. So yeah so the one the one time or one of the many times. My last name does come in handy but figuring we would kick it off. I would love to have our listeners. Learn a little bit more about you and how you came into starting miracle messages. Thank you so I Had An uncle who is homeless about thirty years He suffered from schizophrenia. On and off the streets and I never really thought of him as a homeless man I just kind of thought of him as my beloved uncle and so after he passed away. I started just thinking a little deeper about the people. I was passing every day on on the street. I worked in Ed Tech kind of always been a social entrepreneur and so I'd go to the office and leave and come home thinking. Oh yeah making the world a better place and trying to do that. But then I'd see this. You know more and more suffering just started being recognized as well at experience that people like my uncle are going through and so I started initially with this question of how can I use. Storytelling tools like smartphones social media. Wearable cameras to help tell the stories of people like my uncle mark so they're less invisible and A project the first project was called homeless. Gopro where over the course of a year Twenty four individuals experiencing homelessness volunteer to wear gopro cameras around their chests and narrate their experience of what life is like on the streets. And so I got the footage back was really overwhelmed by what I heard and what I saw And specific to miracle messages. I heard a quote that started being said over and over in different versions and with something like hey you know. I never realized that was homeless when I lost my housing only when I lost my family family and friends and when I heard that I was like oh my gosh you know that makes total sense. But I've never heard any service provider. Articulated in Government Agency articulate this what I've come to call Relational Poverty Aspect of homelessness. This isolation is disconnected nece so long story. Sorta short I decided in December two thousand fourteen to take a walk down market street. Downtown San Francisco went up to every person I saw who is experiencing homelessness and just asked him a very simple question. Do you have any family or friends? You'd like to reconnect with and first person. I met I was a man named Jeffrey. He said he hadn't seen family in twenty two years on the spot. I sat down with him asked if he'd like to record a video message to his Nieces nephews is sister is that he said yes. I went home that night and posted the video and a note about Jeffrey on a facebook group that I found connected to his hometown. Within one hour of that toast the video was shared over one hundred times and it made the local news that night and classmates neighbors people who Jeffrey started commenting. Hey I went to school. Jeffrey working construction does he need a job I work at. The Congressman's office doesn't need healthcare. I twenty minutes of the coast. His sister got tagged we got on the phone the next day and she told me that. Geoffrey was missing person for twelve years. And this is broad daylight downtown San Francisco a few days before Christmas so that led me to quit my job and start doing this work fulltime. 'cause I knew Jeffrey was the only one and that this shouldn't be happening in. That is what was What became the first Miracle Message? Amazing and I think I think what I find so compelling is you know. I've heard you talk about the Difference Between Homelessness in House listeners. Before of of that relationship poverty and and I what it's also showcasing is. The is the the beautiful upside the positive side of social media viral messaging of messages. That should be going viral. So I I'm looking at some of the stats here. It's like three hundred families reunited to date that probably that number is probably higher now average of fifteen years separated from separated from their loved ones or people they were looking for. I know you've been hosting a couple or you had been hosting a couple of different programs as well around lunches and other things like that. Can you tell us a little bit more about that? Yeah absolutely so. It's not just me running around with a smartphone on the street to San Francisco anymore. I do that sometimes..

"Address after this call. 'cause I so the third tip then I'll leave it at that was around deepening or broadening so I was suggesting in the article that people take a moment to reflect on their relationships and their current state of social health and think about whether right now you feel you need to make new relationships or you need to nurture your existing relationships Or maybe both And basically the recommendation is to take one digital action to either deepen or broaden so get in touch with a friend or family member. You haven't spoken within a while or reach out to someone brand new who you'd like to get to know and it can be super simple but also just that that taking the time to reflect on your current state of Social Health. I think is really valuable. And then recognizing from there. What are the actions you need to take to improve it? Yeah and I think the coolest thing you know you and I are both part of this really global community called the global shapers. Is that because all of this is happening? Digitally perhaps the person you're connecting with isn't necessarily also in the same city or in the same country they could be a totally different part of the world. Absolutely yeah and I think that there again. That's why we need these socially healthy digital habits right. We need to be using technology in ways that can help us connect more meaningfully with the people around the world who are in our network. Yeah I mean what do you think is the the fine line here? I mean there was a period of time where you know at the beginning of this quarantine. So now we're in our just about finishing week to here in San Francisco where you know all across social media. It's like I'm GonNa take all these new classes and I'm going to learn this language and launch this new projects and in my mind like Oh do I is things too and so you know there still is this level of like social comparison that's happening digital league and so it's like where do you find that fine line between being connected versus like sitting in A. It's such a good question. I think the role of self care here is really important and I think we all need to cut ourselves bit of slack and recognize that this is new. Were dealing with stress and uncertainty of this in different ways. It's going to ebb and flow motions are going to and flow and I think you know maintaining your social health or your mental health shouldn't feel like a burden it's really about assessing you know do. Am I feeling lonely or am I okay? Do I need to reach out to people right now or can I just shut everything off in and spend some time in solitude and enjoy that which is also equally as important though. I think you raise a really good point and I just hope that everyone can take this time to check in with themselves and see how they're fueling and just listen to what their needs are. Yeah and and I think a lot of the conversations I've been having with friends or really around kind of how they're adapting. They're visible fitness of like someone put their like ski boots and a backpack and his weights and again when you think about that. Our overall wellbeing the same way were investing in adapting. Our physical health are redoing that the same way for social health and our mental health. And that's why I love those three tips that you gave because we do need to adapt our social house right now. You Know I. I came across this article in. Hp are also related to my conversation with Gina. Around how we're all kind of experiencing this collective grief right now and from Gina's a mental health expert chatting with Gina. You know I think for for someone like me you know. I've lost a parent. I have been through my grief journey to see everyone kind of going through at the same time I'm hoping will de stigmatize grief and our experience of it in a way. I'm curious what you're hoping we learn from this from a social perspective that I think there are two things that I'm hoping we can take from this one. Is that to your point about de-stigmatising grief. I hope that we can have greater. Empathy for people who experience chronic social isolation and loneliness on a regular basis. Because right now we're all kind of confronted with Corentin and social distancing for the first time and this is a new experience and were feeling the repercussions of that but there are many people who this is their normal state and they are isolated or even if they're not isolated they are lonely on a regular basis so I hope that we can have greater empathy for that kind of de stigmatize that because it's a normal human experience we all feel it at certain times and it deserves It deserves solutions. And it deserves kindness and compassion. The second thing I hope that will learn from this is really just collectively recognizing how important social well-being it's and I really hope that. As a result of this experience we will recognize how important our relationships are to us and really appreciate in prioritize and invest in them moving forward. Because I think that you know this is forcing us to think about this a lot more but I it's also forcing us to create habits around it and to create new norms about the ways that we connect and and my hope is that you know. Those habits of social well-being will carry on long after the pandemic has ended and new volve in grow in different ways. Once we can be back together in person but hopefully that sense of importance that we are getting now around our relationships will will continue on long after this is over for sure. You know. It's interesting. Your answer to that was actually free. So what would it has actually got me. Thinking about is learning. You know I think when we talk about extroversion and introversion there's misconception that people who are interested just WanNa be alone right but a part of it is just the depth of the conversation or the number of people are involved in what the activity is and and so what. I'm learning from this is. I'm learning the ways in which I'm learning. What for me is beneficial for my social health because now most of the distractions are are taken taken out are taking out of this context. And I'm forced with like okay. I want to be socially connected. What's the best like and Gina talked a lot about like survival care like now? We just need to figure out what we need to do. From a fundamental level justice survive through this which is what do I need at a baseline. That's GonNa give me that energy to to be socially connected but I loved. I love your answer because there is a lot of there are a lot of people within the disability community who are who are very social socially isolated and likely a lot of adults as well and I know a lot of a lot of my friends and a lot of our community members are writing pieces and very very visible on in the digital space around how this isn't a new experience for us for people within the disability community. And we're hoping we're hoping for a little for some empathy or to actually view our community not only the vulnerable population. But maybe the ones who have a little bit more expertise about how to navigate through through this these types of situations awesome. I love this whole conversation would love to know so. Now you're in the process of kind of finishing up your masters. What is what is next. Radio I'm really excited to start putting all the strategies that I've been learning and formulating during my degree into practice and One of the ways that. I'm starting to do that right now. As I just recently joined The AARP's taskforce to end social isolation and loneliness among seniors in Massachusetts and. I'm really excited to think with them about to do that. At the state level and create programs and campaigns and things like that at that level of intervention Really excited about all the partners coming together within that task force But other ways you will have to stay tuned. I've got tons of ideas. I'm so excited about everything I've been and how I can bring it all together and really create solutions for this at all different levels so you will have to stay.
