A highlight from George Gilder (Encore)
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Very special program today. I have the joy of having Eric Metaxas here. In the studio, I don't know really where to begin on this one. Let me just say that I have the joy of having in the studio George Gilder. Now, some of you will be familiar with George Gilder, but the problem with a figure like George Gilder is you could be familiar with him in any kind of way. He's written a host of important books. We're gonna be talking about the newest one. It's called Life After Capitalism, another very important book, but he's written many books. He is also the founder or a founding fellow of the Discovery Institute. You've heard me talk many times about the Discovery Institute. Co -founder. Hey, you're right here. When did you sneak in, George? George, seriously, it is so good to have you. Welcome to the program. The one thing that I was gonna say at some point, I might as well get it out of the way now, is that, well, two things. For many years, just because I've known you here and there, I thought you're the ideal Socrates in the City guest. And to this day, I still haven't had you as my guest at Socrates in the City, but we've had many Discovery Institute folks as my guest at Socrates in the City. I know you've attended some of them. So I wanted to say that. I also wanted to say, and this, I can never say this with any guest but you. If we look up in the studio here, this is our studio in New York City. There is a Tiffany, a Louis Comfort Tiffany ceiling, a glass skylight above us, a beautiful skylight. And I rarely draw attention to it, but I just learned, if you weren't fascinating enough already, I just learned that your great -grandfather was Louis Comfort Tiffany. Absolutely, yeah. Now, a lot of people could claim that. Do you have some identification, some way of proving this? Well, my sister's name is Comfort Gilder, Comfort Tiffany Gilder. But I mean, honestly, it's fascinating enough to me that I get to be in a studio with a Louis Comfort Tiffany skylight above me, which most people don't ever get to see. But then to find out that, so you have not just a storied life and career, but a storied ancestry. Do you mind, before we get into your very important book and your career, talking about that? When did your family come to the United States and how did your great -grandfather get to be the maker of Tiffany's? Well, this building, my wife Nene just told me, was the Century building.
A highlight from Gavin Wax
"Welcome to the Eric Mataxas show. I shouldn't tell you this, but Eric hired someone who sounds just like him to host today's show. But since I'm the announcer, they told me. So I'm telling you, don't be fooled. The real Eric's in jail. Hey there, folks, welcome back. This is what we call hour two. I don't know why we call it hour two. We just do. And we're going to go with it. We are today introducing a new voice to the program, a new guest. His name is Gavin Wax. He's a New York based conservative activist, commentator, columnist, operative. He serves as the 76th president of the New York Young Republican Club. Gavin Wax, welcome to the program. Thank you for having me in this beautiful studio. Ain't it the truth? Piece of art. Yes. No, it is actually. And the ceiling up above us is an actual Tiffany ceiling. This club, this was a club built around the turn of the previous century. And we had as our guest, George Gilder was sitting in this seat and he looked up and he said that his great grandfather was Louis Comfort Tiffany, who who, you know, you can't make it up, right? And make that up. But Gilder is history. Yeah, that's exactly right. And so this is a really it's an historic building. And we're privileged to be recording here. Now, you are a New Yorker. Yes. I can tell from your accent. I've hidden my accent. I've taken many classes and a lot of coaching to get rid of my New York accent. But seriously, you're a New Yorker. You're the head of the New York Young Republican Club. We want to have you in to talk about what is happening tonight, which is to say, I believe there's some kind of GOP debate. The vice presidential debate. Yes, that's not true. That's funny. Oh, I didn't get the joke. I love it when people put something over on me. Trump obviously is not participating tonight. And you know why? Because he's a political genius. Actually, it's very funny. It's very funny to me that he's not participating tonight. But so what is your general sense of what we're going to see tonight or not see? I mean, I think we're going to see a lot of people at each other's throats. I think this has turned into a competition where everyone's vying for second place. I think there's going to be a stark contrast between what has begun to be this never anti -Trump coalition, which is the vast majority of the candidates, and I think a coalition of one, Vivek, who has sort of found a lane where it's been complimentary of Trump while also trying to show his own differences and his own populist MAGA credentials. And I think you're certainly going to see DeSantis and him go back to back. There's been a lot of polls that show them neck and neck. And I think it's going to be interesting. And I think whoever comes out of this is certainly going to solidify their position in second or third, especially going into these early states. And it'll be entertaining for the vast majority of the people watching who are certainly already voting for Trump. OK, so you have been on the record just now, folks, you heard it as saying, I think it's going to be interesting and entertaining. I have a different view. I think it will be not interesting and not entertaining. So I have an appointment with a hairstylist this evening at 8 p .m. No, it's kind of interesting to me to talk about this, because we're living through unprecedented times. We have never, ever, ever had anything to compare to this. You're very young, but in my lifetime and in the lifetime of anyone who's alive today, we've never seen anything like this in American politics, where you have a president who I have no doubt that the election was stolen. So we're seeing a level of corruption in the Democratic Party and our political process.
Nathan Finochio & Chris Palmer Share Their Book "Theos Starter Pack"
"Okay. So you have a book called Theos Starter Pack, which is a very arch title. You guys are kind of arch. And Nathan, you're extremely arch. Toward a Recovery of Essential Christianity. So if somebody gets this book, Theos Starter Pack, what will they find in this book? Okay. So Chris and I were thinking about... Basically, we wanted to... It's essentially... I think I was telling you about this earlier, but it's essentially a Festschrift. It's a collection of... Of... You think you're just going to come in here looking all disheveled. You didn't comb your hair and you're going to throw in the word Festschrift. You didn't even pronounce it correctly. You're going to just throw that in like everybody knows what you're talking about. The only reason I know the word Festschrift is because I wrote a biography of Bonhoeffer, who was involved in a couple of Festschrifts in his day. Can you please tell people what is a Festschrift? Well, sometimes they are... So they are academic... Celebration of writing. A celebration of writing, and they're typically a submission of essays from a variety of faculty members in honor of a specific faculty member. So what kind of a hodgepodge, a kind of paella of essays? A mosaic, if you will. Patchwork. Yeah, a Tiffany mosaic. Yeah, there's a Tiffany ceiling right above us here. Okay, so this is a bunch of essays, a grouping of essays from your faculty at Theos U. So who would be interested in Theos U? And what's the difference between Theos U and Theos Seminary, and who is taking these classes? Okay, so anybody who wants to learn theology, particularly conservative theology, politically conservative theology, charismatic theology, and I should say, once again, charismatic theology, what does that even mean? It means nothing and everything. As I said... So for example, my brother is, we're ecumenical. My brother is high church leaning. I would probably be high church leaning. Chris is definitely sacramental, but he's Pentecostal. And then we have David Campbell and John Adams and Thomas West, Dr. Thomas West, and who they are, they're reformed as, they're as reformed as John Calvin, you know? And so, but we all... Imagine John Calvin being open to the gifts of the Spirit. Yes, well... I think his hat would fly off. Certainly. That pinched hat that he wears in all the portraits. But what you're talking about is actual Christianity. In other words, you're interested in what is true.

"Welcome to A Magical Life, Health, Wealth and Weight Loss. I'm your host Magic Barclay, Lead Practitioner at Holistic Natural Health Australia and number one best selling author. In this podcast I aim to give you practical tips on how to accelerate and sustain your health, increase your financial, spiritual and emotional wealth and to look at something that haunts many of us needlessly, weight loss. In some episodes I'll have guests available to give you even more tips but in others the floor is yours. Drop us a line at A Magical Life podcast on Facebook and let me know what you would like to know more about. Now sit back and enjoy because it is time for you to create and truly discover a magical life. Welcome back to A Magical Life, I'm your host Magic Barclay and today Tiffany Roper joins us. Now Tiffany is a mum before she is anything else. She's blessed to have two amazing young daughters who motivate her to be the best she can be every day. She loves learning, improving herself, serving others and growth. Tiffany loves to spend time with her girls and create amazing memories with them. She's been a project manager for 20 years in the corporate world before realising that's not what makes her feel fulfilled and it's not her purpose but it has given her a great background in helping others stay accountable to hit goals in a timely manner. Tiffany is now a coach of mums of young girls who want to hit goals and live a life on purpose so they can be the best role models for the young daughters and create leaders of tomorrow that we desperately need. Welcome Tiffany. Hi Magic, thanks so much and it's such an honour to be on your show. I'm just excited to be here and have a great conversation with you so thanks so much. It's my pleasure. Now I have sons so it's a bit of a different world but when you have daughters I guess there's a lot more onus on you as a mum to make sure that they're not only able to cope in this rather male led world but also to excel and follow their passions. What's kind of the biggest learning curve that you've hit being a mum of girls? Oh my god that is such a great question. So I came from a very strong dad and a mum that unfortunately wasn't very involved and or raising even though my parents were married through my high school and what I found and I thought it was just me is me and my two older sisters were all raised to have that you know take charge, go after everything, you don't need a man and don't depend on one you know and it's helped in certain ways especially in the corporate world and as you said it's very male -dominated especially in corporate IT very male -dominated still and it helped a lot but it also made me almost go on the error of too masculine if you will and losing a bit of my feminine energy because in the corporate world you're not allowed to show emotion you're not allowed to really go with creativity and intuition and that kind of stuff it's you know go go go and get to a timeline and get this done and this needed done yesterday and you know it's almost like you had to take on a persona or wear a mask and I thought it was just me and how I was raised but I soon found in different personal development stuff that I've done that it's really a generation of women that have been raised to you know really depend on ourselves and not depend on men and I think it's really affected the family unit and so when I'm raising my girls I want them to be strong leaders I don't want to create another generation of me too as you will and my daughters you know afraid to speak up and in that I also want them to not be afraid to fully be who they are and that includes you know we all have masculine and feminine energy but that includes to make sure that you're using your intuition your creativity your loud emotion that kind of stuff that I feel like in this generation that I was raised in maybe it wasn't something that we were kind of given permission to do and I think that's been one of my biggest learning curves is how do I create leaders and my daughters without having them see femininity being a woman as something bad or something you're not allowed to do and to truly embrace their full selves. That's great. Now I asked my guests the same three questions and I really can't wait for your answers for these so here comes your first one. What can your expertise do to accelerate health not just physical health but emotional and spiritual health? So I really think and especially because you know as moms we're absolutely the biggest role models for our daughters I really think it stems down to you know we have this like to -do list right and it never ends and you think as a mom you'll just get seven more things done and then if you get all this done tonight it'll make tomorrow easier and somehow that next day's list becomes just as long as not longer and there is no end and so after years of really lying to myself and saying well if I just get through their teething if I just get through this sickness if I just get through this project at work then everything will be okay and I'll have time to rest I'll have time for myself and I quickly found I was just lying to myself so I really think the health and us having a healthy mindset and then being able to be these role models for our daughters that they need is to start with ourselves and I think when we get you know we're exhausted from the day then we have to come up this whole other level of energy when we come home and start all over with our kids and helping with homework or getting dinner ready or getting ready for bed or getting time with them and we just fall down at the end of the day exhausted and we forgot that we're still a person a woman a wife before we were a mom and so we don't have the energy to do anything for ourselves and so we think oh I snapped at my kid today so tomorrow I'm just gonna love him harder that'll make up for it I'm gonna love him harder and it's not your children needing to love harder if you want them to love themselves and take care of themselves you have to love yourself and take care of yourself because if you only show taking care of others which is a great aspect of femininity and being a mom the nurturing side but then you only make them great moms which is awesome but you don't show them how to take care of themselves first and I think that's the big piece we miss as moms we can't go into the do as I say not as I do because it doesn't work we have to walk the walk and be in alignment and start with ourselves very much so now look we talk about wealth here and I think many people think that's just financial but it can also be emotional and personal wealth so what are your top three tips to creating wealth absolutely yeah I think it starts with yourself and it starts with mindset it starts with what you think about money if you grew up in a mindset of scarcity I grew up very poor and it took me a really long time to go oh I don't have to hold on to every little penny that I've actually opened my hand and let money go it will also allow money to flow in instead of desperately holding on so tight to it and so that's one thing is just making sure you have more of a mindset of abundance versus scarcity and then I think another way is to have that that confidence in ourselves that we add value whether it's you know in a corporate world whether you're a stay -at -home mom whether you're having your own business whatever it is don't undersell the value that you give and we often don't have that confidence or feel like we're truly worth it and so we're often undervaluing and discounting what we really should be charging whether that's negotiating at the in the corporate world or self -care we give ourselves or what we charge for a course or whatever that we actually do or product we sell and we really need to understand the value that we give to the marketplace and then charge as such and so I think that again comes back to worth and um and it's you will never make more than what you deem yourself worth making and so just make sure that you're in alignment with that as well so I think we just have to kind of see it holistically while it's great to understand investing and savings and all this kind of stuff um it's really again starts with having the self -confidence valuing yourself correctly and having a mindset of abundance instead of scarcity and so we know really when you give and you nurture you get so much more back than what you ever give in that serving and what we're so great to you know doing as moms so we really just need to have the right mindset in doing that and so we invite that wealth in and we're charging correctly as we're doing it and I think it really just sets you up for very different way of doing things when you change your mindset when it comes to money. I love that answer that's great now listen we do talk about weight here as well and as women we're often plagued by our own weight issues certainly as moms our bodies change so have you ever battled your weight if so what was the trigger to losing it and what can you offer their listeners in their weight journey and also to reduce stress which we know is a key factor and you hit exactly on it I love that because we catch ourselves in this world where of course we're always comparing ourselves with everybody else and it's generally in a negative aspect well I'm not as good as that person I'm not worth as much as that person I'm not as pretty as that person I'm not as skinny as that person whatever it is and of course anytime you're comparing yourself you're stealing joy from yourself and so it's just really important to and do this as well with your daughters I saw a statistic just the other day where they said eight -year -olds are now on diets and I've been really big about raising my girls to understand that your body will change throughout your life whether it's through puberty whether it's you know as you get older and you have kids of your own whether it's whatever it is your body's going to change and fluctuate and to honor that change so you of course still need to take care of yourself and put your health first in order to be there for everybody that you love and want to take care of and you know we all struggle with that and I have my own struggles with it I'm definitely not perfect but just be very careful on valuing yourself solely on your pant size and I think we do that too much and then we compare ourselves way too much and then we need to make sure that we're being very careful with what we say about our body to ourselves we think as we're saying it maybe in the mirror and you have little ears running by because then they start thinking of it that way oh are my thighs too big is my booty too big or whatever it is so I've also been very careful about not making those comments ever out loud no matter what I might be thinking inside at the time and just honoring the female body and knowing we all are going to fluctuate and you have so much value to give that has absolutely nothing to do with your looks with your weight with your pant size but still in that aspect you are worthy and you have so much value that you do need to take care of yourself and do that if nothing else you don't want to do it for yourself which we really should then do it so you're around longer for your kids and so you can still be that role model for them as long as you can possibly be some great distinctions there now we love freebies here Tiffany what can you offer the listeners and where can they find it so I have a a course but I set up a ebook that I have and so I would love to be able to give anybody who is interested it's helping moms get on their own to -do list so it's a top 10 tips for that and so we start really understanding the value of taking care of ourselves and why we need to in order to be the role models we need to be for our daughters and so I'm going to be getting a website and all this kind of stuff up but in the meantime feel free to email me at .com girlmomfamilycoachingatgmail and I will definitely get that to your listeners so I'm very excited to be able to offer that and there's some really great tips and things that I've found over years of you know just research and learning and personal development that kind of stuff that I would love to share with listeners. Terrific and we'll recap that at the end of this kind of roll on but having been raised by a mother that perhaps didn't see my worth as a female what can you suggest to moms that have made mistakes and how do they stop those mistakes becoming intergenerational? That's so smart and such a great question and it's one of the biggest things I want to change we obviously we need to forgive we have to forgive others we have to forgive our own moms for the mistakes they've made I've had a rocky relationship at times with my mom but I've also understood that she could only give what she knew what she had and so she did the best she could with the skills that she had and that's why I didn't want to be this resentful frustrated person I wanted to be someone that could forgive and show that people are you know valuable enough in your lives to not cut out to actually forgive them for it and it's also taught me to step on her shoulders and step on my dad's shoulders who kind of had to be the dad and mom and say this is what I learned from them and instead of repeating those mistakes and starting where they started I'm going to stand on their shoulders and start from there and I think too often because it's easy because we're exhausted because it's a lot harder being a good mom than we really ever thought when we started out and it's habitual we kind of do what we know and we're like I'll never say that to my kid and then all of a sudden you're saying that to your kid and so one forgive your mom and forgive yourself because you cannot give from what you don't already know and if you can't forgive yourself it's really hard to truly forgive others so forgive yourself for the mistakes you've made we'll make them every day anybody who's trying hard is going to make mistakes it's easy to not make mistakes if you sit on the sideline and don't do anything with your kids and don't make any decisions and you know be that type of mom you're not gonna make mistakes well great but you know what I rather be in the game and I rather make the mistakes and I rather learn from them and I rather apologize and show how I will do better because it also shows our kids how they can do the same so I think it's really huge and forgiving you know a mom that's maybe not great in the petting your history and then forgiving yourself and then learning and being determined that you're going to step on their shoulders and do better instead of repeating those mistakes and so we can stop the generational pandemic that we really have in just repeating a horrendous cycle and again it's not from an intention it's not from meaning to I think it's just we have so much on our plates now as moms we're not the moms from the 50s that just took care of the household and the kids and it's not saying that that's a not a huge job because it is that was a lot but now a lot of our mom these moms these days are also you know making the bacon bringing home the bread whatever you want to call it we're earning as well as having to do all the rest of it and it's a lot and so that's why it's just so key to forgive do yourself better the next day but start with loving you I promise you you're never going to be able to teach your kids to love themselves and take care of themselves if you don't show it first and you're never going to be able to love them as hard as you want to if you don't love yourself first because it all starts with you it does definitely now look this is going to probably come out controversial and I'm sorry podcast gods if I'm going there but I'm not sorry as well there's men and there's women and women were built very differently physically emotionally mentally how do we nurture girls to be happy to be girls because there's this you know you mentioned the episode but there is a pandemic of this gender confusion and I think we're losing the essence of what it really means to be female I know you know Matt Walsh did his documentary on what is a woman and so many people couldn't even answer that basic question of it's a chromosomal thing we're born as a woman so how do you help girls in this really gender confused world to know the worth to value being female and you know to make that work another yeah very insightful and great question and I think again it's giving ourselves permission to do it first and it's not even for me it's not even a sex thing we all have masculine and feminine it doesn't matter what your sex is it doesn't matter if you're gay or or whatever we all have masculine feminine and we feel more masculine or more feminine that's just our essence our energy and it's really about not denying it I think we again it's this generation of you go through the the bra burning femininity and I'm not taking away from what that gave us because we're able to kind of stand on those shoulders but I think because of it it's it was almost looked at like a man -hating and it's absolutely not what I feel I love the masculine and that masculine energy especially in a family unit is very necessary and I really think and you know even if it's not in a traditional household you know I'm saying or it's like you know man woman and kids or whatever you still have that masculine energy generally and so and if you don't you know you can have others around you an uncle whatever around you so I'm not taking away from that masculine energy I feel like they have such a want and a need to serve and I think because we were taught as a generation of women to not depend on a man because that's so negative that men have almost felt marginalized they were used to being able at least say okay my value is bringing home the money okay now you can do that so what's my value here and we're so used to saying well if you're not going to step up and figure it out I guess I've got to do it so I'm going to step up into my masculine and then often you have a masculine energy and a masculine energy going at each other and it's causing a lot of fights and a lot of division in families and a lot of families divorcing and splitting up and so I think it's really women you know we need to feel safe and feel like a man is going to lead if he wants to and serve really and a man needs to be able to be vulnerable as well and have that you know a bit of that femininity side if you will and interacting with us as well but it starts with us you can't control others right so I always try to think of how does it start with me and that means I have to step out of my masculine role more I have to trust more and let someone else lead sometimes I have to ask for help and be willing to ask for help even if it's not going to be done perfect if the dishes weren't done how I wanted if the meal wasn't made how I wanted if the clothes weren't folded how I wanted it's okay because they're at least trying to serve and we have to allow that instead of just saying oh well it's not done my way so I'll just do it and then shooing them aside so it's being vulnerable and it's coming with a sincere curiosity in and helping them see where they can serve and where they have value as well and also it's really big about honoring our feminine cycle I was raised unfortunately where I was made fun of anytime I had my period and so to me it was I wasn't until in my early 30s before I was comfortable going getting feminine products in the feminine aisle at the store and so I wanted to make sure for my girls they honored that it's like yes you have this and it's amazing the cycle that you have that allows you to have kids if you choose that's amazing and let's honor that and your body could change when you have kids and maybe never go back to what it was before but wow you just made a how amazing is that and we need to be able to honor our own femininity and be able to sit in it and be comfortable in it instead of always wearing the masculine mask that we put on for our own safety for our own you know trying to step up on the corporate ladder and we feel like it's needed there and so again it starts with us and what we can do and then making sure that we're a four -letter word and femininity is something that you can honor instead of being oh it's man -hating and it's about you know broad burning there's so much more to that and if we step into our whole being as the part masculine a lot of feminine in you know a lot of women as moms we are only going to honor that and I think it's coming back in style and if it isn't I'm going to help shove it back in style if I have to I'll use my masculine shoving energy instead of my flow energy to do that because it's so needed we have that's why I'm on the mission of really creating these female leaders we need tomorrow because again nothing is the masculine but they've kind of had a long time to you know rule the world and we are we are and I think if we have the feminine energy have permission to be the feminine energy and you know be the leaders that we can be for this world it's just amazing what it can become and I know it's been you know heading that way and I think it's really the time to to kind of take over if you will and be our full selves.

Louis Vuitton Embraces Web3 With Iconic Virtual Trunk
"I have a very important question for you. Ooh. Will you be buying a Louis Vuitton virtual trunk for $39 ,000? I think it's actually $41 ,000. I think it might have been 39 ,000 euros. I would love to have one of those if the Louis Vuitton team wants to gift me one. Aneesh Nelly would hit me up. I will happily send my ETH address. I really am excited about what Louis Vuitton kind of gave us a sneak peek to this week. Unfortunately, it is a little bit outside of my Avery budget. How about you, Sam? I probably will not be buying one. I wanted to get your thoughts, though, because this is a project that has ultimate status written on it. Not only is it 39 ,000 euro, but you can't trade it. You can't sell it. It's a soul -bound token that is, once you buy it, it is yours. The ownership trunk gives you access to things in the future, including access to buy yet more things, which they're calling keys, which seem to be both digital and physical drops. Those, they have not said whether you can sell them or not. My assumption will be yes. But it really is this like ultimate status club membership. Buy the trunk, get access to more things. What are your thoughts on the overlay of the Louis Vuitton audience that Ari's investing a lot with the idea of spending so much money on an object that you can't sell, you have to keep forever? I actually think that it's an interesting strategy from LVMH. Many of our listeners may or may not know that LVMH, which owns Louis Vuitton, of course, and Moet Hennessy, also owns Tiffany. And if you recall, Tiffany did a very limited edition NFT drop for $50 ,000 that sold out instantly. Right, the CryptoPunk one. With the CryptoPunks, exactly. That was available for resale, and there was a little bit of trading activity, but due to the nature of how that NFT worked, you could essentially redeem it once for a custom CryptoPunks pendant. That's a very swaggy piece of jewelry. I've seen a few of them in real life, and it's definitely a status symbol, IRL.
Tiffany Fong Is One of Our Favorite Influencers in the Crypto Space
"I first heard of you, Tiffany, when you kind of like kind of burst onto the scene. Loudly with some leaked messages between you and Sam bankman fried and then I was like, wow, what's going on? Who is this woman? How did she get this conversation? Is she just a reporter? And so I always thought you were a reporter. And then I started to realize, as I learned more about you, that you're not like a journalist or you're more of an influencer. So I want to actually bring you on the show and hear from you, what you've been up to in the crypto space, how you found yourself in the position you're in. You know, a little bit about the Tiffany fong story. I mean, I think a lot of people think I'm a federal agent, just I heard that too. I get that probably the most, so it was very quick. I don't know, everything did happen very quickly. I only started posting on Twitter and only started my YouTube channel after Celsius is collapsed so that was like in June, July, July last year. So I mean, I haven't been even really using Twitter or YouTube dot log. So it was a quick, I guess, rise. It's not like I have like a massive massive following, but things grew very quickly. So I feel like that's why people come up with a bunch of weird theories about the fact that I'm like a federal agent or whatever. Yeah, and I would say the picture of you and Joe Biden didn't help that. Yes, okay, that's what it is. See to me, I think nothing of that because I wasn't invited by Biden and it wasn't like some cool invite. Like someone who watches me on YouTube just slid into my emails and was like, hey, invite to The White House and I was like, this is a scam. This has got to be fake, but it turned out to be someone who I think works in the Secret Service and they wanted me to be their plus one. So I always forget that that even happened. I wasn't like some cool invite to The White House or anything like Joe Biden. That's a pretty cool invite to The White House, a plus one for the Secret Service.

Tiffany Smiley: Sen. Patty Murray Does Not Address Issues
"So these issues are really cutting in your favorite which is inflation The price of gasoline The price of everything in fact crime Your opponent has been a 30 year Washington bureaucrat who just sides with the leadership in that party So she doesn't have any answer to these issues does she Well she doesn't In fact that's why we are tightening in the polls is because I've been talking about these issues that are facing Washington families for the last 18 months I got out and listened to understand what they were facing Senator Murray won't even touch these issues She will not address the fentanyl coming across our southern border She will address the inflation that's crushy Washington families And we have some of the highest gas prices in the country She still doubles down on her agenda which I called her out in our channel I said senator Marie if all of these things that you're saying are so great why aren't they working Why am I talking to families all over Washington state who are suffering And you fail to acknowledge that we have an issue This is exactly why we will win Mark

Tiffany Cross Thinks You Are a Racist
"I want to play this again and I'm going to discuss it more broadly with you because this is what is destroying our country Racists who are given platforms by corporatists Tiffany cross on embassy Had to go So despite the fact that the GOP's racist rhetoric hasn't slowed down at all they've begun I don't know what racist rhetoric she's talking about either You see ladies and gentlemen if you disagree with the radical left policy agenda then your rhetoric is racist If you believe in a sovereign nation and securing the border then your rhetoric is racist If you're concerned about what's happening crime wise because foreigners are coming into the country drug cartels fentanyl you're obviously a racist If you don't embrace critical race theory which accuses you of being a racist well then you're obviously a racist If you don't think little kids should be watching burlesque or should be taught about all kinds of sex are told that just because they have this it doesn't mean they're that then you're obviously a racist And I object and I am tired of pretending this is just regular free speech I object to reprobates like Tiffany cross having a public forum because executives at MSNBC are promoting this crap and are cowards and the executive rooms and the direct board of directors at Comcast think this is a wonderful

"Now according to numbers provided by the national Republican congressional committee 80 of the Republican incumbents in candidates on the ballot next month are women 33 or Latino 28 are black 13 are Asian Asian American and three are Native Americans It wasn't that long ago when the Republican Party was criticized for not running enough minorities Now they're working their asses off to identify minorities who are conservatives or Republicans or who will switch from Democrat to Republican as conservative But Tiffany cross doesn't care What's the big deal Go ahead Do not always equate two voices of color And as our own NBC Scott Wong points out in his great reporting the leadership will still be almost entirely composed of white men So the leadership will still be almost entirely composed of white men So this is very interesting to me Why It's interesting to me because on the one hand she the back of her hand dismisses all the minorities attracted to the Republican Party now who are running for office in the Republican Party But they don't have a leadership in the Republican Party How many blacks are leaders in the democratic Senate How many None But if 90 95% of the black population votes Democrat Shouldn't it be significantly more than none When you think so ladies and

"If people are unhappy with the country which they are if they're unhappy with the direction of the nation why reelect someone who's been there who's been a part of the system but a part of the problem she ain't changing it No no in fact I mean she has no plan to rein in the out of control spending She has no plan to lower gas prices to decrease inflation She has no plan for the crime and the homeless crisis that's plaguing Washington state That's why our race is picking up steam and speed here because we do I have an agenda for recovery reform and how we're going to turn crisis into hope for all of Washington We're not talking about Democrat Republican issues We're talking about American issues We're talking about the quality of life About delivering results lowering gas prices raining in the out of control spending and I certainly will fight to stop the 87,000 IRS agents from coming after our small business owners and our hardworking Washington families
Tiffany Smiley: Washington State Is Tired of Politics With No Results
"You know Tiffany as you went through this and you fought the system what did that show you What did that teach you about government incompetence I'm sure that was very eye opening You know talk about that Yes it was extremely eye opening because here I thought you know the VA was there to help my husband but I realized it was just really laying red tape and roadblocks in front of him He was completely blind and the best service that they can offer him as a bridge into society and being productive was cassette tape I remember thinking this is absolutely ridiculous and we have got to do something Thank God Scottie had me and he says that as well But I always thought about everyone else Who's standing up and fighting for everyone else but it also showed me the power that we have I don't know another country where you can take on the army or the DoD and advocate for something better and build coalitions and have your voice be heard But I saw the power of that as you know I was just a singular voice for Scotty but was able to bring people in and build bridges that actually helped others We need more of that in our government That's certainly what the people of Washington state are feeling They're sick and tired of politics that doesn't deliver results for them And I'm honored to be I've been at this for 18 months listening to voters and I will be honored when they send me to Washington D.C. to fight for them and bring results to the table You know I'm going against career politician 30 years in the Senate Senator Murray perhaps she has good intentions but on policy we can not measure policy by good intentions We have to measure it by results That's what I'll go to Washington D.C. and fight for
Tiffany Smiley: Reflecting on Her Husband's Trauma
"How that changed not only your own life trajectory but also your husband Yeah Yes at 23 years old I resigned from my nursing job in Washington state and I took a one way flight out to Walter Reed army medical center where I didn't know if I was going to meet my husband dead or alive And when I walked into his trauma care unit I had student loan debt I had a car payment I didn't have anyone standing outside the door saying let's take care of that student loan for you And here's the pathway and everything's going to be okay Scotty had tubes coming out of every orphan of his body He was in a coma One thing that was certain was that the suicide bomber that he was negotiating with in service to our country in Mosul Iraq had detonated his car and the shrapnel from that detonation obliterated both of Scotty's eyes so he would be forever blind Thank God I was a nurse and I wasn't intimidated by the medical system but it was really my first interaction with sort of that larger government bureaucratic system where you are just a number And I stood up I refused to sign the army paperwork They had never had someone tell them no But I believed in this wild crazy idea that my husband could make a miraculous recovery I knew I could help him do that And that he could still serve And took on the DoD Gotti went on and became the first line to active duty officer to ever serve our country And we served for over a decade with Scotty completely blind and once he was well I knew I had to go back and make it right for everyone else So I took on VA reform and people said don't waste your time Tiffany But I knew it was the right thing to do And we were able to work on meaningful reforms that directly helped injured veterans and their families So it was the best waste of time that I ever spent but truly in that fight just realized you know we have so much more to fight for and I'm a mom of three young boys and me and Scotty want to leave them in America that's worth giving their eyesight for

The 10 Most Important Races in 2022
"Master dot com, Joe day dot com, team Herschel dot com, Ted bud dot com, Morse the number four Senate dot com, Adam laxalt dot com. JD Vance dot com, Doctor Oz dot com, smiley for Senate dot com, Ron Johnson for Senate dot com. That's not order of importance. That's the order of the states. Blake masters in Arizona, Joe Dan, Colorado, Herschel Walker, and Georgia, Ted bud in North Carolina, I think, oh, got that wrong. It's then C, but NH I was using the abbreviations. Chuck Morris in New Hampshire, Adam laxalt and Nevada, JD vents and Ohio, Doctor Oz and Pennsylvania, Tiffany smiley and Washington state and Ron Johnson in Wisconsin. That's the key. Those ten races. And I hope Peter jail gives them all Peter Thiel gives a $100 million to each of those races. Sets up an independent expenditure committee. If you're listening, Peter, I'm just saying, give a $1 billion away and win the country. It matters. It matters. We got to stop these crazy judges. Yes, we got to fix tax policy. We can fix that. We're going to have the House of Representatives in any event. And great candidates winning all across the United States last night. Republicans low end, they're going to pick up ten high end. They could pick up 40. Depends on how badly Joe Biden screws up and what happens with inflation. And right now, the misery index, I think it's baked in. The house is one. Democrats are giving up the retiring in droves. They're running away. And they should. Because redistricting plus the misery index means a Republican wave in the house.

I am mostly physically recovered. Except one thing that you and i actually share is. I don't think i've ever shown you this. But i've also got a slightly aren't hands up to the screen. Because she's telling me that her. I mean you do have a little bit of hype bricks little bit much as you. I do have my left. Hand has hyperextension and so there's a little bit of paralysis left in my left hand. I don't consider myself physically disabled anymore. The stroke brought a lot of trauma from my childhood back in. That was everything from the asian american racism to the body shaming. I was also sexually assaulted by one of my ballet teachers. Who also didn't believe me and i will say that that sexual assault. It left a really big scar further of not belonging in the world and it was something that honestly just like a i mean. I'm still going to therapy. You know for it. Because i still get haunted by every time i kind of go into this like space of feeling insecure about anything. That incident still comes up. Something that i'm still working through. I can't say that. I have like overcome all my trauma. No no. it's a constant work in progress. But i would say just to kind of skip a little bit here.

"He very much resonated with this idea of using dance as a catalyst to really break the stereotype and really send out a bigger message in this flash mob to it was where i had individuals of all different walks of life identifying with all different gender sexual identities as well as disabilities coming together in what was happening. Is that because when you do have a disability you can have empathy for another or. I would hope that you can for me. That was what's been happening in my case and i'll be really honest. There's a lot of shame around from a cultural place. When i got my stroke. I was in tokyo. I had no one to turn to. I thought mental illnesses were fake at that time that i even know the term mental illness. There's just a lot of shame of admitting i even had. Ptsd and going and getting help. This is also intersects. Nallet comes into place. Asians are three times less likely to seek mental health support. I have a feeling. Due to a combination of racial trauma intergenerational trauma there are more of us out there and the more we can speak out what we're experiencing from a mental health perspective by leading by example.

"And what they want to get out of the conversation itself and maybe you'll find out that that individual wants to be heard. Maybe they're not looking for advice or response. They just want to sit there and be with you in that moment or maybe that person does have a different intention in the conversation and the earlier we can get there and set that right intention. I think we set ourselves up for success and we save ourselves some disappointment as well for where a conversation may go wrong. I think of it as the fire extinguisher. Having on hand without having to put out the fire and being able to know how to navigate that scenario before it even begins so many things are coming up for me right now especially during a time right now where in the context of the current pandemic. It's been a really hard year in so many ways. One of my go-to even. Though i don't know if i actually used it but i tell other. People is the phrase. Tell me more about that. And so i'm curious if you go to phrases or questions that you turn to in order to help equip people to be like okay. This is going to be my first step in terms of learning how to ask better questions. And i wrote that down when we spoke on my podcast. And i'm adding that to my toolbox. So tiffany thank you for bad. That's a brilliant phrase. I think for me time and time again. I'd get comfortable with saying i hear you. I think there's this meta idea of wanting someone to feel heard but it can be as simple as telling that person that you hear them. And i think that can be validating in a way where you don't have to know all the right answers and you don't have to err on the side of toxic positively where you're just saying things to make the person feel better and you can instead. Just help. validate what they're sharing and feeling so. I tend to say it out loud like you and then i typically follow that up by saying thank you so much for sharing that and i thinking someone for sharing perhaps more difficult sentiment or a heated opinion can also validate than using their voice. I think we've gotten to a place today in twenty twenty one were even. I feel this personally. I'm afraid to share my views without fear of judgement because of how prevalent cancel culture has become in our society. And so i think if you can thank someone for sharing with you. What was on their heart on their mind in a way it validates for that person that they shared their opinion in the first place. So i would say those are my go-to that i hear you and thank you so much for sharing that and then typically i would follow up with yours. Tiffany tell me more about that. You know so. You did mention cancel culture. I notice that either. There's ego involved of not wanting to be wrong of not wanting to look stupid. There's the fear around cancel culture. I guess i'm just curious. We're just not having the conversations that matter and so. I'm curious if you have ideas around what we can really do to help empower people to step into a space of knowing that they have the psychological safety to be wrong. This is really tricky and is something that we're trying to pioneer at t c. But it's still a struggle. We have a set of guidelines..

Sophie barron who is the ceo and founder of the conversationalist before the break we were chatting about what her echo chamber look like an all of the work that she's been doing either through her own. Inner work and through the conversationalist to really break out of her echo chamber. So part of the reason why i started. This podcast is because i wanted to learn how to be a better listener. It's so easy for us to just talk. And i'm curious if through your platform that is something an even through your own work. Is that something you're working on as well completely and i am still very much a work in progress. I'm learning more and more every day. I learn so much from you on our episode and listening more than we speak is something that i am trying to put into practice. I think an interesting thing to share that we strive for every day. At the conversationalist is first and foremost to show everyone in the community that we hear them and we see them and we're doing our best to understand them and the way that this actually works in practice is in all of our different chat rooms. There's the ability to react to certain messages with any emoji of your choosing and once you're in our app would be so pleasantly surprised to see that are most frequently used emoji is the ear emoji. And every time someone posts a question or a thought or even a controversial opinion. The first thing you see is that ear emoji reaction that are members place on these statements to show that even if we may not agree or even if we can't respond to not moment we hear them and so. I think that's the way that we're trying to actively practice listening but it's definitely a skill that i think. We can constantly flexible more. I love the ear reaction emoji..

"Their what is being a member of the conversation list. Look like the questions you're posing. Tiffany are the things that keep me up at night. I'm still working through so much of this. And i can't wait to dive in more. But the conversationalist really has become the home or the place for generations e to come to to both process what is happening in the world around us and challenge the issues that we're seeing in our society so we currently house our community on the geneva app. It's an audio video and chat based communication platform where we have different rooms dedicated to different topics that really represent topics that generation z. Are struggling with and struggling to speak about every single day. Everything from mental health to racism to body image. The environment pop culture and beliefs goes on and on and on and we've been able to create a space where every single day our members are posting current events and questions and the things that they're seeing in their own walks of life or in their own echo chambers and opening them up for conversation. So we've been able to create a platform for young people to not only listen and learn and grow but also discover their own voices in the process and so it's been amazing to see. Were starting to bring some content back into the mix with the podcast. They can't wait to share our episode. And it's just been an interesting journey to be able to now give space to young people out there that i so wish i had growing up. There was a moment. The i'd love to share briefly. That happened last week amidst the horrible shooting. That happened in georgia where two of our members who are from the asian community wanted to open up a conversation and talk about how they were feeling given the horrific shooting so these two members opened up a space in our audio room much like clubhouse and they were sharing their experiences and they asking for advice about what to do in that moment when they were feeling so isolated and frustrated and their schools..

"High every wine. And you're listening to this episode of tiffany and you tiffany. Anew is a podcast about things that matter and more specifically. I'm having with friends. Who are using their voices and platforms to cultivate creativity. Change and compassion. Today i have with me co in. She's a one and a half generation. Asian pacific american. She's a wellness advocate. A mindfulness guide in an award-winning storyteller. Heiko hi tiffany. And i would add that. I wanna be your best quarantine friends. Yes i always liked. Starting my podcast by sharing how i know my guest and so you and i met through dreamers and doers cohen. I were joking that we felt like this podcast episode might be like one of our telephone conversations because over the past year co has become one of my virtual quarantine buddies. I figured we'll just get right into it. You published a piece about a week ago called. I'm an asian woman. And i'm not okay if you wanted to share about. Where did that come from. And i know a lot of your guests probably but you are also an inspiration as low as a friend to me. So thank you for your continued advocacy. I was publishing a lot of opinion pieces for my work for my nine to five. I've started formulating my own opinion as a journalist and an asian american culturally professionally we've been taught not to speak up and to stay objective and not to stir chaos but i've noticed that in my work as a writer as a personal essays. That sharing stories is not only empowering for the individual in reclaiming our narrative but also it resonates with a lot more people just with the raw emotions and thoughts and hopefully the healing that comes from it. So as i was watching all this happened during last summer during the peak of the black lives matter. Movement who i was angry but i didn't quite know what to do with that anger and we stood in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of color but also it was bringing up other things for me and i needed time to process that and he'll through that talk to my therapist go through alternate modes of healing as i am somebody who is into self care but also an open to changing. What's working for what's not depending on the time and intensity and has been a very very intense year. I was going to opt out of a meeting that i have weekly with some other older. Mostly white women and they said no. We want to hold space for you. And they've been inspiring to make. They are very vocal about everything from the latest netflix. Show to trump to motherhood.

"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

"We are and what we're capable of doing and recognizing the lay of the land and the reality is that we are a state agency. There are presents the government to the commute back to the government so for us over the understanding what our role is and the so many great grassroots organizations community organizations that are doing amazing work and so for us. it's to pivot point of that conductor of being able to get people to understand where the resources are. Who's doing the work. Elevate those organization. So they're getting the resources that they need while also making sure that the government in the legislators are aware of the needs of our community. So i want to transition a little bit. You mentioned your interest in this space started with learning about black history. So you had that education than that led you down the line of wanting to learn more about asian and asian american history. Can you talk to me about the importance of solidarity solidarity within our own community as an asian community. Do we have that. And then what solidarity looked like with other racial groups. That's incredibly important. In especially really timely. Given what's going on within our community right now we've been going through A difficult period where many are elderly are being attacked. And there's a lot of pain and rage that's sparked within our community and being involved in some of all the the craziness that's happening. What's been really evident is. We're not whole community that we're very fractured as api community. We are very much fractured and renewed to have these discussions because her reason why it's so hard for us to be heard is because we haven't had the difficult discussions ourselves. We haven't done the work together. There's so many amazing organizations around the country better. To a great work in unorganized that happened. But let's time to elevate them wanting. That's pretty obvious is at after. All of this happens bows over organizations. Like a j. asia-american justice initiative for action for getting on the. There's so many different organizations that really should be elevated to me if we don't come together than our voices will be heard. We had bryan on almost a year ago. I want to say eleven months ago. When the pandemic when there was a lot of anti-asian rhetoric and misinformation around where cova did originated from chinatowns heavily affected. I am curious what the past year has been like being involved with haight virus free. You know growing period for us. I think for everybody. Were really trying to figure out how to move in the space. And i think we've done some really great work. We've raised tens of thousands of dollars for small businesses to let people know completely volunteer organization. We haven't been paid. We haven't received any money because we really do believe in our mission of getting the resources to the community that needs it. But we've been able to utilize our network. Our influence or network are broader general network to highlight voices organizations. Really need it in. So i think for us is very similar to with asian american commission. Where we see ourselves as amplifiers mobilizes we have amazing co-founders prime was one of them. But right now we're being led by tammy jo am shell hana pusa and under their leadership. We've really been able to identify who we are what we're gonna be doing going forward to..

"You're listening to this episode of tiffany. And you this is your host. Tiffany you tiffany. You is a podcast about things that matter and more specifically i'm talking with friends who are using their platforms and their voices to cultivate creativity compassion and change today. I have a very special guests with me. Sam human. He is the chairperson of the massachusetts asian american commission. Hi sam took any hurry you. I'm doing well so we're actually recording this on lunar new year. Which is why. I'm wearing red. I don't know where sam's read is but that's okay. No shame were assured. There's a little bit of red their on his virus shirt. Sam is actually someone that i have been following because i have also been affiliated with when they first launched about a year ago but i actually think i discovered him through tiktok and was following him on tiktok. His content is really topical talking about asian american issues talking about racial equity but we met through clubhouse on christmas we originally had been co moderating a couple rooms together specifically around the asian american community together. So we did need through our mutual friend brian lamb. Brian fan was our guest from episode to one. So sam first question for you so. I love origin stories. I love to learn about your origin story. And how you became so passionate about asian american issues. First all tiffany. Thank you for having me on and also being such a strong advocate for our communities typically for the disabled community which is as you know much overlooked hardware communities. That shouldn't be for me. I grew up in a suburb just outside of massachusetts but it was really afloat but i grew up lower middle class family and so it was really challenging in terms of trying to figure out where we stood from a socioeconomic standpoint where i was in terms of the whole community in understanding my identity always being made fun of for being asian and not being able to digest it. Because i can't control that. That's just who i am. I just couldn't reckon with the fact of my identity was used as a way to look down on me in also where my social standing was. And then i started learning about the civil rights movement so dr king malcolm x. Rosa parks huey newton alabama in that really sparked my interest in understanding old. There are people speaking up. And i realize all my heroes were black. I get the college in my freshman year. Professor is the son of stokely carmichael. Best friend and that was how i got introduced. Is teachings of stokely carmichael in really that led me to learning about not only the african american history and true african american history but that by professor encouraged me to go learn about asian history and then asian american history in dallas. Really how it. I started to see the intersex of the two and that was really like i realized why not only did black. People fight for asian americans. Bill come here posting sixty eight but the history has impacted me of discovering my own identity. That's powerful and so now. You're the chairperson of the massachusetts asian american commission. What are some of the priorities on the commission right now. That's a great question. It's really understanding..

"The bill doesn't necessarily mean it's a pro and the opinions opposing. The bill doesn't necessarily mean it's a con because whether or not something the pro or con also depends on your view. You might read an opinion four bill and you might think. Oh actually. I think that's a bad thing so just depends on where you stand as well. I think that one of the challenging things that we have run into just recently. It wasn't the case when issued or launched which was the day after the two thousand sixteen election but recently we have seen that sometimes for certain bills. There's not even really well stated or strong opinions on one of the sides and i don't mean consistently democrat or republican side. I just mean like either way and so that has actually been more recent challenges that we've encountered and it has to do. Perhaps with just less people out there talking about the bill. I'm not sure why. Actually i just feel like it's something that we've only encounter in the last six months or so. It could mean because every focus on the elections so they weren't commenting on the bills as much. I remember you had a lot at georgetown interns on your team is political. Leanings something that you are. Cognizant of as you continue to build your team like making sure that you have people representing all different sides of the table. That's a really good question. It's definitely something that. I'm very cognizant of on my advisory board but it's not a question in our interview process for interns team members or volunteers at all and i hadn't experienced one summer where we went through the whole summer would be three interns in new york and this is when we were meeting in person and at the end of the summer at the end of their internship. I asked them. So what political party are you. 'cause i actually didn't know so to go through a whole summer with someone. Inauguration know what party they are. I think kind of just shows that we really are nonpartisan. Didn't even come up. So i found out that out of those three interns to republicans in one was a democrat. And i didn't know that..
