Don't realize you know this woman grew up in foster care. A lot of people that I know that grew up in foster care have abandonment issues. They don't let people in very easily.

Relationship Vic, she is working hard with Komen now cash wondering they did not make on Tumblr they met on a movie set and in the beginning, they seem to be joking around about relationship. Do you guys think this was part of this strategy die when they wanted to keep it private they may challenge the spot was there they moved in but like we just we just can't come out and be public about this. I think when you get to a certain age, you're not throwing every relationship up on instagram but we live in a world where people meet big on dates they get a coffee and they meet dogs three days later and all of a sudden we know their interrelationship these people are over forty. They're not playing this a love game like everyone else. Victim. Also say that we can. We stop letting social media validate relationships like just don't put your relationship online or social media on twitter doesn't mean you're not with the person anymore I. Remember every time I like post Rubio, post like her toe and the photo people like thank God you guys are still together. I got worried I'm like. Are you serious because you see her? Also. Keeps all the single people out there. That are actively searching right now because a lot of people have come out in a very lonely at the moment out of Oscillation Quarantine and I need to know who's available if you don't put in Karachi's talk, how do they night? Know but by the way when you're when you're not available is when they come. So that's why I always tell people don't Poche your man on. INSTAGRAM. Don't be nobody to your happiness because they only want you when you went somebody and that's the true nobody was victor until he got CARUCCI.

Trauma in all its forms defining it, we talked about race face trauma intergenerational trauma. The reason why I wanted to talk to you about race face trauma. It was actually the first time that I had heard that term race face trauma is this new or it's becoming popularized because of what's happening. Yeah I would say it's more becoming popularized right now I'm not. Totally.

Mastering Money With the Budgetnista
"So. Tiffany. Let's start with your personal story. So we're currently in third recession of the century. But I'm guessing that you're doing just fine partially at least because of the lessons you learned during the last recession to tell us a little bit about your history, what the last recession was like for you and what has happened since then. Now. Certainly The last question caught me off guard i. Was Not prepared. I because quite honestly I was a schoolteacher and you know I was pretty confident. I'm like, I don't know that schoolteachers lose their jobs because you know we are essential workers, and now yet here we are back again. But Yeah I was a schoolteacher and I didn't move my job actually in two, thousand, eight when so many of my friends did but I let I lost it at the tail end of two, thousand nine. So it really took me by surprise but. Up until like I would say, twenty, five, twenty, six, I was what I called financially. Perfect. I grew up in a household. Money was talked about wasn't scared of talking about finances. Might author was a CFO OF A small nonprofit? He also had his NBA in economics, his his a in finance. My mom was a nurse and we literally used to have money meeting so. I. Didn't grow up with the angst that most people did. So by the time, I was twenty five even though. I was teaching preschool wasn't making much. I think I was making like forty thousand dollars a year By the time I was twenty, five ahead. Forty thousand saved bought a Condo I. I had an ADL to I. Think Credit Score at didn't have any credit card debt. I paid off like my parents helped with my undergrad degree plus. I commuted. So what I did haven't stood alone. I was able to pay that off a few years after school. So financially perfect like okay. So I honestly couldn't relate although I was helping my friends with their budgets savings and things like that. I couldn't relate to the mistakes because I had not yet need them but I was going to then. When I was twenty six, I went on to get my masters in education and I was like, okay. So you now you went from no debt to a mortgage, not so bad. I had a a you know student loans because my master's not so bad. But by twenty six, I said, okay. Now, I'm ready to learn to invest and instead of asking my father who has literally two degrees in years of experience I'm GonNa ask a friend of mine. and. So I asked a friend of mine who appeared to be independently wealthy because he had like a really nice car. and. Like a like a fancy apartment he's well I think Spurs. You have to learn to invest with other people's money at. My money. So what he postulated as is that. Do, you have credit card said, yes. But I paid off in full every month because as instructed by my father, he was like well, did you know you could pull money off a credit card? I, did not know that. So he said not only can you pull off one? You could pull it off to I was like double the mistake. Let's do it. So I pulled off twenty thousand dollars off of my credit cards and I went to invest with him what's to say? That didn't happen I. ENDED UP Thirty, five thousand dollars in credit card debt when I didn't have credit card debt prior and I just remember thinking a first year. I said didn't want to take responsibility for the mistake that I made I did not tell my dad or my mom. But I pay just a minimum because I said, you know what? He's going to come back or he's GonNa. Take care of this because it's not my fault of Ansel from age twenty seven I didn't do anything. Well, twenty, seven night out the money twenty eight, just pay the maximum finally twenty nine, I said all right I'm GONNA pay off this debt just going to buckle down I live pretty frequently anyway, and then twenty nine is when I lost my job. So. Now, I've got a mortgage student loan credit card debt and I was like, okay, I don't know what to do. I've never been in the situation. So. Fallon to this light dark hole of like spiral like because I'm twenty nine going on thirty I've lost everything as far as I can tales financially. So I ended up moving back home with my parents without telling them why they knew it was the recession obviously, and they also knew I lost my job, but they didn't know. ABOUT CREDIT CARD DEBT Live with them for year than I. Am I live with my sister on her couch for year, try to figure out my life because back. Then now we're getting the six hundred dollars a week on our stimulus stimulus check. But what was happening then as they just extended unemployment typically, you can get unemployment for up to a year. They extended to two years. So I said, okay, you have two years to. To figure out what are you going to do with your life I was afraid to go back to work for someone because I thought it, you can lose a job as a preschool teacher essential. Then that's not safe. What could be safe? So I tried a bunch of different things I tried on party promoting party planning I volunteered everywhere I can think of, but while doing so I was helping my friends. But save get out of debt all these things in one day. My friend said, you should turn that into a business and I'm like you. Now I had gone to school my bachelor's degrees in business, but I hadn't used it. And so I, tried to charge people one on one. Only to find the people that you're actually helping with your budget. The reason why they hired us because they don't have any money. So that was a bad business. So I, switched my business model to one too few and I worked on getting contracts and I got my first contract with the United, way? And I rose excited 'cause they were going to pay me I think like. Three, or four, hundred dollars a class and I had a six week course that I'd written. For them, and so I did, and that was like my first. Okay. Maybe I can really make a run at this My little sister gave me the nickname, the budget. So that became because she said like, I'm not like the fashion. Easter. Who is really fashionable, but I am very cheap so
Who should replace Ellen?
"News is ongoing. Generous. Ongoing News that won't stop are one nemesis might be replaced by our other nemesis. On their talk show the Ellen show. Well, these are that this is them news, but I do feel like Ellen could be replaced with a WHO, if this all comes to fruition or like a WHO thinks so too person because I'm seeing a lot of people nominate various talk show e people although apparently the rumors are like James Corden is going to replace Ellen, but like he has a show so. That makes no sense to me on any. That's what blows my mind. Why he has eight hundred shows. He has just made another daily show like that doesn't make any sense to me at on. The also has carpool. Karaoke. And then he also has the cat sequel like he has plenty, oh. Yeah. Let's replace a supposedly nice person with another supposedly nice person like. Haven't. We learned anything from this thing. These people are Nice. They suck. I think always be wary of people who say their thing is being. I think the number, one person who should clearly replace Allen is Kiki Palmer. There's literally no. Better obvious. Getting a lot of a lot of traction and she showing up a lot of tweets because it's like she just had a talk show that got canceled for no reason on ABC. Well, it was like that one hour of Commerical Strahan. Michael? And Kiki Sarah? There was A. Third Sarah. Sarah. And Michael and Kiki It just give it to clean working it. Just everyone likes he. We Love Kiki. She's a great host. Who else do you think if if we're going if for skewing young? I think we to Kiki for skewing older, I think it should go to fucking the woman who should have gotten David Letterman, amy. Sedaris like give it to amy sedaris because people like her. She's silly. I don't know that, amy, the thing is I. Don't know that Amy Sarah's would want to do that I. Feel like. I don't need that. We're talking about this on the Patriot. If you WANNA. Go listen to that about how drew Barrymore also has daily, show a daytime show coming out, and I'm like who would want this job? Drew Barrymore wants this job since when like it's just to meal a a weird job that you wouldn't want that could turn you or probably. Turn you into a monster, right? Yes. but the to provide a context in case you've been under a rock people are like there. There have been the rumors for years and years and years, but specifically the past few months they've really you know the hit a critical mass and started being reported publicly like Ellen is an asshole to everyone. Ellen is an asshole. The people she works with Ellen makes people not talk to her ellen cruel. But now there are reports by like news and variety and insider that it wasn't just ellen being a to everyone and celebrities and not liking Ellen like being on Ellen show. It's that the executive producers were actually like being abusive like in sexually harassing the employees. So it's like a culture. Culture of toxicity. That is the sort of thing that I don't that Ellen is deciding up allegedly that she doesn't want to deal with anymore. So she's like this sucks like I just rather not do this anymore. Right. So but this rumor, this isn't this is in fact, this is rumor because people keep their keep going back and forth and saying some some sources say she's not leaving this show sums his sources as she's leaving the show. I. Can't imagine somebody as likely a annoyed with the whole situation who is known to be not a very nice person would want to continue to fake be nice and have to apologize and half to like kind of whatever because these rumors have been. Kind of like I for some reason I, keeping you Kevin Spacey Pre the abuse allegations like when everyone knew he was gay, but no one knew he was gay like it was weird thing where it was like if you knew, you knew if you didn't, you had no idea what be totally shocked it. Kind of feels like that type of Hollywood news where like everyone knew that Ellen was secretly mean except for Ellen fans who had no idea where living happily with ellen everyday of their life and like the show was wildly successful, right? very strange. A very strange thing. Do you think that this will happen because people are so bored in their craving, the Gospel, and then somebody just this is this is what I mean I, think it's I mean. It's a combination of a lot of things at one of is like the people finally speaking out about their employers. It's like finally like shutting down like the. The systemic issues and leg, not being corporate America and knowing that people will support them and believe them and believe them, and that like the media machine of Ellen isn't powerful enough to shut down. So many voices if enough come out and and we'll talk about it later in the episode, but it's like the it's similar to the. Vanessa. Morgan thing, it's it's shades of an ESA Morgan being like I'm going to speak up against the riverdale creators and the Riverdale producers because people are people are realizing that they can do that and they won't get like dumped on by the press or of their fans they will be seen as like heroes. But. It's also just like, I, Think Dakota Johnson had a tiny bit to do with it because Dakota Johnsons like Open crubaugh open open. Rudeness to Ellen SORTA. Gave People. I don't know permission to speak about rumors that she's an asshole more openly. They're like, it looks like that's what Dakota's referencing. So I didn't even know you liked me. Of course, I. Like you. You Knew I. Liked you. You've been on the show many times and don't I show like. But I did invite you and you didn't come. So this time you invited me, are you sure? How do you? I don't think. So ask everybody. Jonathan. Your producer. I was that, why didn't I go? I don't know that became a meme. You have people like Brad Garret and who else replied to him. Leah Tom's Tom's joins. She is mean she is. She. Yes. Now, I can't believe I just called the Thomson. So Deutsche US minor. That was obsessed the disease of this show right here. Yeah. Leah Thompson also respond to that and said Yep I mean, I just think that it's like no one was a true story note once you lose grip on the fear, you are the power you had over I mean, and it's funny because then you have scooter Braun coming out her being like Ellen is great. I. Love Allen is like so people still. Look at the people coming out and say L. Like scooters, hedging his bets at this, all go away and back to normal and Ellen will still be powerful and whatever, and then you have people speaking out i. just it's a fascinating reveal of a monolith almost kind of crumbling that you didn't think would ever. Be exposed like this. I didn't. It seems like Palmer is getting a lot of A lot of press over like a lot of tweets being could replace. Ellen is trending key Palmer got a lot. Tiffany haddish. Got A lot that woman who does the like trump impersonations? What's her name? Sarah? Cooper. She got a lot of people tweeting about her I mean, I think it's just bomber just someone who someone who actually. Got Some tweets booing reply Oh doodoo be from drag race also got A. Drag. Race. Got I. saw that. Yeah. But I think he palmer when you when you want someone who has like the resume as well like. You of don't WANNA, pick someone random like Sarah Cooper. As funny as she is on twitter, because like her her her skills as a as an interviewer, not proven whereas Kiki, Palmer is a link interviewer host. Yeah I mean I would say like the Ellen slots, big slot made we just move up the ladder. We get Kelly Clarkson in that slot. We get Drew Barrymore Kelly was and we get key. Palmer. Work. Curse, lot I know these are all people on different network. So it makes literally no sense but you. Better like we. We cannot confuse the audience. We must replace the Ellen show with someone named. Ellen. Ellen Ellen. Page's like don't look at me like another gay. Just like I will not I will. Zone POMPEO, she wouldn't do it. I. Don't I don't need Elon Pale. Ellen Page Ellen Popular, and Never Would Ellen Pompeo every interview Ellen Pao's ever done. It's been like I. Love Grey's Anatomy I. have nothing but free time like. She will never do that. You know who would do it. Who Ellen Barkin? Embark and all Ellen Barkin wants is a soapbox like did someone say soapbox?
My Husband Wants to Separate Our Bank Accounts
"TIFFANY'S IN DALLAS. Hi tiffany. Welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Hi? How are you? Right? How can we help? I was calling because I I recently got married. Well, not recently, it'll be a year November and my husband and I. We were why thought we were on board to? follow that the plan I actually went year class a couple of years ago when I was telling my husband about it in. SHANECO excited initially but I guess maybe after a few months of the A we we had joint bank accounts and then he decided he wanted to have separate bank account and in that time and we have joint bank accounts we did pay off. credit card that we had differently and student loans, and so now the haven't had that conversation one or it was just kind of like. I'm not sure kind of like an abrupt decision. He had the conversation. He just went and did it. Why haven't you said? That's not okay. Well I I did and He just kind of implied that he didn't. WanNa have separate or he just said he didn't want to have separate account. He wanted to have separate accounts one. Well, he said he didn't like the way I was spending money, and when I brought attention that you know we pay off student loans paid off credit cards. For the two of you working together on a budget now you weren't. I'm not. We did a couple of times. You were spending money and hand like how you're spending money because you guys didn't have a plan where you're working together. Hey tiffany. This doesn't feel like a big deal, but I want you to sound every alarm. You have. This is a big deal. The number one cause of divorce in north, America days, money fights, and money problems. Jesus said your treasures where your heart is. He just took his treasure and took it away from you and set it over to the side and cut you out. Right. This is danger US relationship ground. This is stopped the presses. Get somebody that you trust in your life that can sit down with both of you, and you had this conversation like today Gore toward pastor marriage counselor, somebody to walk you guys through this, and you combine your lives for richer for poorer in sickness and in health unto the all my worldly goods I pledge. This the old-fashioned marriage vows that no one says anymore. Because it caught the combining of your lives in the combining of your assets in the combining of your spending decisions causes the combining of your values and forces detailed in-depth communication. And there's a lot of thrashing around going on at your house where he just jerk stuff away, and then you stand there looking like a deer in the headlights going what happened 'cause you were over here overspending or you're spending money and he couldn't control you or some kind of crap is going on here. I, don't know what it is, but I smell stink Something's not right. Somebody's hearts settled a year end with her cheers or his or both. But this is a giant red neon flashing light saying Danger Danger, and you've got address it soon in dress it with a good heart. If you come in and say, Hey, these two knuckleheads on the radio said that you survived out a divorce yet, don't do that. Let's see what we're saying. If you don't fix this. When you're thirty is you know ten years from now, this will have gotten much worse. It's not going to naturally get better. Systems left to themselves deteriorate unless you put pressure on them to Polish and to become an marriage is a system in that regard. So. We've I've seen this for Thirty Years Coaching couples. It's a very, very dangerous sign. So yeah, you guys need to get on the same page. He is either controlling or ultimately disgusted with you or both over the handling money, and you guys need to get on the same page. So we'll help you guys sit down with a good marriage counselor, get some coaching before this gets worse. It's not a lightweight thing and then I'll give you Ramsey plush and you guys get in there and go through. go through Financial Peace University, get on the everydollar budget together. And Combine your finances income into agreement every month before the month begins as to where are spending is going to occur and you both have a vote. He doesn't have the only vote and neither do you and neither do you. This is called marriage. We're going to work together. We're GONNA compromise for the good of the couple. And die you've you surrender yourself, he surrenders himself himself for the good of the pair. And so what I do in our looking at this. Okay. What's good for the two of us? Not, what's not what do I want and double out? Don't double up my fish and have A. Fit like a four year old kid on the cereal. It happened yesterday in my house. I said Hey. Let's let's. Start putting some money savings here instead of. Put money over here. My Wife said, I, don't feel comfortable with that. What if we split the difference and I, trust her and she trust me and she was wise and I wasn't being unwise I just had an idea in my head together a good decision. An are on the same page moving forward. It's out works.

"tiffany" Discussed on TIFFANY
"You're listening to Tiffany and you this is your host tiffany you on this episode I'm joined by Drawn Herman who is a dancer and cultural critic. Drawn and I met five years ago to this month at New York City's inaugural disability pride. Parade. On July Twenty Six, twenty twenty we recognized the thirtieth anniversary of the Americans with disabilities act the diamond anniversary. It's a huge milestone for community and so drawn and I reflected on how far we've come how far we have to go within our own disability narratives and stories and how he is using dance and and storytelling to continue to advocate. I hope you all are enjoying this episode and the end of what a couple of cities have designated as disability pride month. I everyone. It's Tiffany you here and you're listening to this episode of Tiffany and you today I have with me drawn her, men, hide you're on. High Tiffany's Ron Herman is an interdisciplinary artists creating dance text and visual storytelling. He's based in New York City. So drawn nets five years ago to this month. At the inaugural discipline right parade in. New York City. We were watching the main stage and we were standing next to each other. And you turn to me and you said Cool that echoes I had. I had a black. A black tote bag with a white diversity ability logo. Did I give you a bag But you got me plenty of work. Do different resources so I'll call. It. But I. Remember that because we connect it because we both had arms that look different. And so I wanted to start there because disability origin stories are really important and I have actually come to learn more recently. From an earlier guessing victor. That small US actually of two origin stories. The one is. Whatever our disability is in the second is when we actually took ownership of disability identity. So I'd love to hear your origin story however that manifest itself. Cool case of origin story one. I was diagnosed with him play Asia's Rupel Posey when I was three months old and my a whole personality and all of my interests and and sort of outlook paradigm was shaped by that diagnosis because. It became my mission to counter everything that was. Really it was a way in which I need to include nuance into the diagnostic definitions of how my body would function I would function and what I contribute to my environments about led me to the arts where I felt quite unfettered. It was the place that you weren't predicated on your physical prowess or your physical characteristics to engage in, and my creativity was piqued by storytelling and by this mental and this ephemeral game of creating and organizing worlds and other contexts that people could be free and so that led me deep into the arts. I'm a true feeder geek full on and was really obsessed with Broadway and musicals and drama you're in the right city for it. Exactly, I mean honestly it was the main reason why I came to New York I I just knew that I could be productive here. And my advocacy for disability was, of course, ingrained although I did have a very different approach to it. I was going to be a maverick and I wasn't going to associate myself with the typical disability community..
No Look Pass
"The NBA Wmba seasons have started back up I've only caught one game so far, but like many basketball fans I'm looking forward to the tempo and intensity. This season will brink. It's a lot more on the line. Players are bringing that to the game. Don't get me wrong. I'm looking forward to some highlights to Dunks, lobs crossovers, but is something about that. No look pass that true finesse to the gain. Some of the greatest. No look passes of all time. John Stockton Steve Nash Steph Curry Arguably. Rajon, Rondo Carl Malone. It's nothing like seeing a player in all confidence. Take that ball up the court. Drive into the paint in dish it off with a no look. Pass finished the player scores. In the NBA Dunks are expected, but is that no look pass that catches you off guard, which is why many have not mastered it. Two things have to happen at were four. No look pass to occur successfully. Fars the passer has to have foresight as to where the recipient will be. This is what makes the no look. Pass so smooth is just not the no look, but it's the no look with the understanding and awareness of where the recipient is going. The recipient must be ready. This can go either two ways. They can catch it or they don't, and they don't. is nothing short of a disappointment, because if caught ninety percent of the time is buckets. The second thing that must happen in order for the no look pass to be successful. The player has to be emotion. When you're in motion, you're not stopped or stationary. There's momentum being exerted. And, being emotion requires you to stay focused on what's in front of you while also anticipating what's coming at you and for the big man holding down the paint? This is not easy. These guys are huge six foot eight seven feet now is one thing to run the baseline, but a completely different one to run the court trail the pain, not clobbering the man in front of you while possibly anticipating a quick dish. From the point, Guard So many factors to account for in a lot of trust going on there. Is Not easy, even though it looks easy, you may be saying tiffany. How does this apply to me? I don't play basketball. You're right, but you might be working two jobs to make ends meet or staying at home, juggling the demands of your kids or carrying the load of school. Whatever it is, keep going stay emotion. God the Ultimate Point Guard sees it all in every now and then. He might throw you a no look pass. Will you be ready.

"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.

Will virtual dates stick around after the pandemic?
"Hello and welcome to wide you push that button a show where Caitlin tiffany. And Ashley Carmen that's me examine all the choices. Technology forces us to make. We are back sort of just for now just for today. Yeah, a little one off for all of you who have stuck with us for this Os year since we last released episode I have absolutely no sense of whether that's accurate because I no longer have any idea of the use of calendars. Yeah, so! Pandemic Kate. How how have you been doing? Let's give the listeners a little bit of a sense of our mental state. These days yeah I, think I'm getting into the swing of it. When a couple of months ago. When we started talking about doing this episode, it was chaos here in the tiffany home I had recently broken a mirror a window to wine glasses. It was basically like I was just kind of crunching around like a floor covered in glass being like I. Wonder if I'll ever see my friends or family. so that was a dark time. I, am but. Things are picking up in new. York a little bit were allowed to go to the beach crucial. Yeah, allowed to look at each other outside. If not touch each other, so things are on the on the up. Yeah, we've. We've seen each other. which is really great I think I've sort of settled into a routine of sorts I've done. Pandemic Bingo I've done polygon workouts. I've made various foods and baked I've done. Done a puzzle. I hate to admit out loud I learned tiktok dances in had jello shots. Right birthday that you made me. Yes, anyway, so we wanted to do this episode where you know of course. Why'd you push that button? We are always curious about how dating affected. What's changing dating these days? So we wanted to episode about how cove nineteen in the pandemic has forced us to make a ton of. Of decisions about how we live work, relax etc, and how he date. Everyone's been staying at home. As you all know, and so that means they have been able to Columbia date and virtual dating has become a thing and we want to know. Is this thing that's going to last forever, or is this a pandemic phenomenon at? We're going all forget ever happened. Repress. It maybe mentioned it to our therapist once and. And that's it. Yes, so virgil dating I guess the first half of virtual dating is a concept that was already part of normal dating interest, swiping on tinder or okay. Cupid or hinge, which I guess is more of a scroll type action, but you know whatever, and then the virtual component is that because we have been understood home orders, and because people have been encouraged not to hang out in close proximity with. With people who don't live with them, you just don't do the whole thing where you meet up in a bar. Who would you can't do You don't do the whole kissing thing. You don't do any of that. You just like facetime or zoom or SKYPE OR INSERT alternative secure video conferencing software here to see if you have a connection, which all of that I think makes sense. We're kind of interested in. In what happens after the first time you facetime with somebody, win, you know. How do you build momentum? Can you build momentum? Is it actually dating and will there be like remnants of virtual dating in post? Pandemic, Romance Yeah like how effective is virtual dating really? I think broadly geographic location has become increasingly less important like when you're doing remote work. It doesn't matter where you are I could be doing an forest. Forest or beach or in the city, and it really does not matter as long as I have an Internet connection, but you know dating these dating. APPs have kind of made. It seem like maybe geographic location doesn't matter for that either, so we WANNA know how effective it really is to date from afar, and so here's here's stats. We're just throw some numbers at everybody. Okay. Cupid said that sixty two percent increase. Increase in daters on okay, but going on virtual dates in April, compared to March and it started including covid nineteen questions in people's profiles, they could talk about how they feel about. The pandemic e harmony reported a twenty seven percent increase in messages in April match, said that daily swipes read an all time high during its last earnings report, which was mid pandemic, so obviously, all of these stats are a little bit. But they are from the peak of the pandemic, which is, we would expect most people to be using their APPs video calls the most so presumably while the pandemic kind of wanes and then comes back during the year. We'll see people stay on the APPs the probably changed how much they're using them depending on the state of lockdown in their state or country,

Epstein's alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell set to be arraigned next week
"Maxwell. epsteins closest associates. And helped him exploit girls. who were as young as fourteen years old? Mental played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Okay if you thought the Jeffrey Epstein case was over after his apparent suicide in his jail cell last year. Thank again you'll remember that Epstein was the disgraced financier and convicted sex offender who socializes powerful men like Prince Andrew Bill Clinton and Donald Trump on Thursday, his longtime associate d'alene Maxwell, was arrested and charged for allegedly helping Epstein recruit groom, and sexually abused girls as young as fourteen years old. She has denied any wrongdoing. Here's more of what the US attorney from the southern. District of New York had to say about it. Max will and Epstein had a method. Typically. They would befriend these young girls by asking them questions. About their lives, pretending to be taking an interest in them. They would take them to the movies. And treat them to shopping trips. Maxwell would encourage these young girls to accept offers from Epstein to pay for their travel and their education. Making these young victims feel indebted to Jeffrey Epstein. Developing a rapport with Victims Maxwell then try to normalize sexual abuse with a minor victim. Joining me now. Our our sisters in Law Maya Wiley Professor at the new school and NBC legal analysts Barbara Maclead, former US attorney and MSNBC contributor and Joyce vans, also a former US attorney, and also MSNBC contributor so ladies first I love the all female panel, but I will say starting out I used to be a field producer for America's most wanted, and my beat was covering missing and exploited children. On, this and ask you if you could. How important is the role of the person WHO's The enabler? The person who is recruiting these young girls and my experience, that person was integral to abuse cases when I was a journalist covering these types of cases so. What what say you on that? Yeah. You're absolutely right, tiffany. This is this person and the person who plays the role that. Just Lane Maxwell accused of playing is a Predator is just as culpable as. Jeffrey Epstein or anyone else who sexually assaults anybody? The reason it's so critical to have a person play the role maxwell is accused of is because it's manipulation gain. We have three hundred thousand young people in this country estimated to be sex trafficked domestically, and what that means is finding young kids met male and female. We shouldn't pretend that it's just girls here. In this country who are vulnerable, who need help who need the support of a system hasn't provided it. These are young women who were disadvantaged in many different ways, and what the role that Maxwell played was to play on their need. Get them to trust and being a woman who does that is particularly important, because if you're a vulnerable young woman, you're more likely to let your guard down and believe that the person who is offering you help means it so her role. Is Pivotal in enabling essentially the victimization of a lot of young women and girls, and it happens all over the country. One of the things that so important about this arrest is that predators who are powerful too often go unpunished. So something I found interesting reporting coming out of the Tampa. Bay Times highlighted that this case is actually being handled by the Office of Public Corruption Unit so I. WanNa ask you, Barbara. What does that say about the scope of this? Nation is that. Link to anyone in the current administration. Is it possible that Labor Secretary Alexander Costa's entangled in this break it down for those of us who don't necessarily know how the inner workings of the Southern District. It's a really interesting detail. Tiffany of the press release that was put out by this other district of New, York. This is also true when the case was originally just against Jeffrey Epstein that the public corruption unit is involved, that's a unit that has specialized training and expertise to deal with public officials who get charged there a lot of nuanced issues that arise when public officials are involved and so it says to me that this case. Case at least touches in some way public officials. Now as you said we know that Alex Kosta had some involvement with this. We don't know that he is a subject or a target of the investigation, but his involvement in negotiating sweetheart plea deal a number of years ago. With Jeffrey Epstein could be a reason. We also know that Prince. Andrew has been implicated as recently as last month Jeffrey Berman. The former US attorney recently ousted. Ousted was demanding an opportunity to talk with him and Prince Andrew was a dodging that request to be interviewed. It may be that he is only a witness and not a subject or a target, but this no doubt touches some people who have positions of power, and that could explain why the involvement of public corruption unit or could be others as yet unknown I think four names I be looking at immediately or not public. Public officials, but enablers as Maya, was talking about. If you look at the plea non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated with the Southern District of Florida back in two thousand eight. You'll see the names of four individuals that Jeffrey Epstein specifically wanted to protect. Those are very likely to be people who were enablers recruiters I'd want to get to the bottom of their role. and I think that this case is not done being charged yet. I want to turn the Joyce. Barbara brought up Berman and his abrupt firing. Do you see any connection here with what the dismissal of Berman and the FCC case? So, Tiffany I think it's very hard to know. We know that. The Attorney General Poll Day late Friday night effort to usher Berman out the door, unceremoniously in the southern district of New York and that didn't work became public when Berman refused to go along and instead of having the Attorney General's political appointee in place. We ended up with a woman who was. was already in the office, a career employee, a career prosecutor who will hopefully be playing things straight up so it's difficult to make any sort of direct political line there what we do know is that this is the classic type of an indictment that looks like prosecutors aren't done. It looks like they're headed in further direction, and that's something that there could perhaps. Perhaps be powerful. People who are interested in shutting off when I say it's a classic indictment. What I mean is this indictment comes in six counts, and there's a I can't. That's a conspiracy count and the maximum penalty. There is five years, but there are also substantive counts and conspiracy counts of enticement and transportation of minors, and those counts actually range from ten. Ten years to lifetime sentences, and so as MS Maxwell, is forced to confront the potential charges. She's looking out. Does she want to go to prison for the rest of her life, or is she willing to cooperate and become a witness and look at lesser charges? Perhaps five year sentence that I think will give some powerful people some reason to sleep poorly. All right. Am I GONNA? Go back to you. What do you think that gain maxwell will do you anticipate that she? Said they say. It's hard to know. We're looking at a case as both Barbara Jo of a choice have said where there are powerful people connected to Maxwell and Epstein. There's the mysterious death of Jeff Jeffrey Epstein that has still raised questions in people's mind. And I think the question becomes. Where do you feel more vulnerable? Do you feel more vulnerable from law enforcement, or do you feel more vulnerable other ways we don't really know. We're not going to know, but the one thing we do know and I think is important to remember is this is an over for the victims? This is only the beginning of what will be a very deeply difficult. Possibly re traumatizing process that they have really bravely stood up and faced down despite the fact that I don't think there's any illusion for them. They will have to protect themselves from further victimization in the way, in which the defense will be mounted for Maxwell. So if there's any decency at all left in this woman, she will certainly spare them.

Tiffany R. Warren, SVP, Chief Diversity Officer at Omnicom
"I wanted. Wanted to dig in a little bit. You are known as such a thought, leader and diversity space, and you know when our team saw that we were speaking to you this week. Everyone freaked out like we're talking. We're talking to celebrity and a think what I'm actually most fascinated by. When we go back to like the twenty five year old at this huge job. Even go back before that. How did you actually carve out a role and a position for yourself that many companies didn't have roles for there weren't really many examples to look for I. Really want to understand how you took an interest in a passionate I think he called it like a calling around working in diversity inclusion and turn it into your career. Yeah, I mean that's a pretty straightforward answer I. I have been a recipient and or participant in some of the biggest national diversity programs, and then my education was informed by scholarships received. Because I'm a person of color. So since two and a half years old and I still have the progress report. Where they're talking about me, they're saying you know. Tiffany likes the quiet ones you know I'm. I'm thinking of like two and a half three year old tiffany like walking around head. Start trying to I know. was I starting to protest I? Don't know what I was doing with the way that the proper support made it seem is I. I pretty much had that early age of understanding in questioning. Why am I treated a certain way because of my color? So when your whole life is informed by that? Maybe it wasn't even informed. Where I was in the hospital in the seventies, I don't know but I was born across the street from the school. That I eventually went to so to think of my mom holding me while looking out the window at. The manicured lawns. The Windsor School, not even thinking that her daughter day is going to matriculate there and and seven years of her life. Growing into this diversity professional and I do think that they were key pivotal moments in my my life that really informed me was almost like lights in a room, and I just had to follow them, because I knew even when I was in inroads, which is an industry internship program that places young people of Color in business marketing. I had my internship at Verizon. And I knew even being part of Inroads I. Love The way this feels. I love the fact, this woman. Her Name Was Sandy banker at inroads at Bryson had the job of making us feel important special within a corporate environment. She was energetic. She was excited to come to work, and so I was like okay. That's what I'm GonNa, do I don't know how I'm GonNa get air because I want to feel like she feels when she comes into work, and so I always had it in the back of my mind, and so even when I. Started working in agency I questioned why there weren't more diverse people, and I went directly to the president had the conversation, and now people would grasping their pearls like how can you just go and talk to the president and set up a meeting I'm like Whoa? Why not because that that idea of speaking directly to authority empower about things that are not going well, are people not being accounted for with something I had been doing apparently since I was three, and so you know stories from my family and my mom I put i. put the pieces together that. Basically had a blueprint for this and was destined for this even the first second generation of my family were there. Teachers nurses were all in some sort sort of service, so my calling happened to be diversity in corporate America someone else my family would be. would be a teacher or nurse, so it's it's kind of. It's kind of generational and Some would say genetic, but I knew probably at eleven that I was going to do this work. I just didn't know what it was called

One point uncovering I think what's been really interesting. At least part of my own journey is I will often tell people how liberating it is to be myself. And what saying that made me reflect on was the fact that there are some people who can't. Buy It got me thinking about my own lovers of privilege as well as something that I talk about a lot actually that we do all have privileges in if we sit back and think about it while we might be because of intersection. In some categories without privileged room I also have other ways to leverage privileged because of the life that we've been able to live experiences. We've been able to have thought they like. You said it's something that we can all do is really step back and reflect and think about how they show up. And, so then how can we show up for others? But also then when people need to show it for us, and how we can be our full of sales, so people see and know that part of us as well. Now we're in the middle of the pandemic. You'll cancel to protests. It's a different kind of energy and wondering. Is there a word or a phrase that the energy that you're sensing now is the word came to mind immediately was intentional.

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.

Female Comedians Unite
"Hollywood's top comedy. Actresses are uniting in saying they are sick of being put in a box. Tiffany Haddish told the Hollywood reporter that she had to turn down multiple projects as a block comedic actress. She says she gets roles that are overtly sexual or roles that had her play a mom whose child gets hurt in some way. Way And she's fighting for justice. She mentioned this during a virtual actress roundtable. That also included Jamila Djamil Jamila said she's always given scripts to play a character who has too much sex. Robin said the writing is often so bad for comedy actresses. She's resorted to writing her own. Do you think that men and comedic roles feel the same way, or is this? Just a one sided argument. No I think you've you asked Matthew mcconaughey Hey why his career went away did it's because those were kind of the only roles that men had to get as well men who were players, men who still had roommates in their forties men? who were Douche bags? That never got out of Frat life. I think that's comedy is all about is lagging at at those things in life, but I think men do get them as well. Okay, I I was conflicted about this I I'm not a comedic actress and I actually thought the opposite I thought that women who were put in comedic roles were usually sort of the best friend role or the woman. That's like maybe made to look as unattractive. Unattractive as possible to be as funny as possible, so I didn't realize that women who were being put in comedic roles. We're supposed to be overtly sexy or things of that nature so to hear this actually quite surprised by it because I just didn't view it that way. Yeah, I think there's typecasting when it comes to a lot of actors whether it's you were maybe a nerdy role in one movie. Then a lot of people see you as oh. That's going to be the quintessential nerd. If we look at Michael Sarah or Christmas, plus like they are also typecast in their own way, so yeah, I feel like it falls on both sides, but do we feel like right Impro-? No I wouldn't ask for it to improve what I would do. is either a write my own scripts and come up and find content that is right for me as an actor or an actress or I would just pass those things up because what happens is if you pass it up. Another actress gets the job, so let's not have those roles diminish. Let's see those roles go away. Just pass them to another actress. Who's just starting her career? Everyone's not in the position, obviously to pass roles and I think you do have to maybe do roles in the beginning of your career, like for example, even just with my own career right I started on a reality show. That wasn't my end goal but I did that to get to where I was now. There was obviously no guarantee in that out, but luckily it has women who wannabe actresses, whether it's serious actresses or comedic actress, or both start their career out and have different intentions are willing to do different things than maybe they get. Get a little bit more famous, or they get a little bit more successful, but I think what you said. Aaron was very valid and I don't know if it's a comedic actress. Issue I think shirt. People just get typecast in general I think the bigger conversation I feel like when you're casting one role, you do it sell well. People tend to want you for different kinds of roles that are similar to that. Yes, yeah, exactly and like what you were saying just in like you know if you don't want those roles, let's not eliminate them. On them, and these women who are part of this roundtable seem like they're fortunate enough to be able to pass on those roles that they don't WanNa, take on I will play the funny gay friend.

A Not So Happy Ending
"Joining me for another week. Debriefing is my friend and colleague Dr Donna Oreo. Will who is an author in? Speaker and certified sex and relationship therapist in the Washington DC metro area. She's the owner of a nod. Right especially is in working with black women on issues related to color ISM in texture ISM ended impact on mental and sexual health. She's also the author of cocoa butter in hair, grease, a self love journey through hair and skin. This week. She and I chatted about what happened between Molly and Andrew. Tiffany struggles with postpartum depression, and how we might support friends who are struggling. The giant reveal from canola. WHAT'S NEXT FOR EASTBOUND LAWRENCE? And what? We might expect from season five. This episode does include spoilers. Here's our conversation. So we are back. So we've come so far down this road. Do this. We. If you like it took a long time here and also was way too quick. Absolutely you know I mean I. think that we should give another petition going. Maybe we can a forty minute episode I'm just saying okay. With unconventional does a half hour I mean we just just has to be hopeful that we can get an season within the knicks, so so gets cold the Akron and They just don't have to act via zoom. We get all a whole. Noon version of insecurity. So, the title of this week's episode is low key laws, and I feel like that is a great description of how they knew we would all be feeling at the end of this episode. I was just like man lost in two senses. We need all out here, just law. Is. Over the place, so we see it opens up this. This episode opens up with Molly and Andrew. He added a work ethic. Right they a work events. Molly's work event and he has tagged along, and so having conversations, and somebody approaches them about like an after hours spot right, and so it's clear that Andrew is now really interested in going, but Mollie convinced him like okay I'll make it a work thing for you to have them play some of your artist or something like that right so I feel like this was a continuation of what we saw last week. Right like some cracks. In the foundation of the relationship. I'm just saying that predictions made then they happened Okay? Tell me how you fail. But it also seems like he just went along with it right like He. You know he didn't really want to go, but then she kinda convinced him, and then he went along with it. Yeah Yeah. I felt like he was a little bit more resistant to it this time around he was just like. You could tell that he was just is sort of deflated him a little bit He's making that. Sound like all right. I'm Gonna I'm giving you this thing, but I feel it. I feel that I'm giving you this thing and. It was not as obvious exactly. He made it very obvious that he was not happy about making this concession this time and Yeah. Yeah, well, we see very shortly after right that there is a continuation, so they've gone to this after work. Thing I, mean now they give back to the apartment and they want to watch the Pinelli of looking for little you is. We have avoided all those boilers and he's like okay. We finally home. We can watch this because now. We're not on your time. We can do it now and she doesn't want to watch it because she's so tired I feel like this was clearly like the last Straw. You know like there was no more straws to be given that day at all and I. It's funny to me because they got going back to the previous episode with the Block Party and just how it's. Just that that's base of like, are you? Are you here? Are you paying attention to what's going on like? Are you here with me in this moment? Because it doesn't feel like you're here like you're seeing like you're able to take in what is right here right now. She wasn't taking in that he was not like. He's like home on like even like before the block party when she was telling Isa I'm not I'm not asking him to do nothing because I was like all right look, you know she on some shaky grounds. You gotta put in deposits before you can make withdrawal and she didn't recognize that she had no withdrawal power in that moment.

She's been named diversity journals, women worth watching list Metropolitan, business, Leagues Entrepreneur of the year, because best for the world and enterprising women's enterprising women of the year twenty seventeen award. She's the author of overcoming bias building authentic relationships across differences. Our guest is tiffany Jonah Tiffany. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me Kevin So. We're GONNA. Talk about overcoming bias in just a minute, but I always ask our guest the same first question and it was interesting to me because you've got an amazing Ted. Talk out there I encourage everyone. Everyone to go google it and in it. You say this is really great. You say that your many failures are part of your invisible diversity. So will you share a time when you failed maybe earlier career? And what did you learn from it? Because we all WANNA learn from it, too? Absolutely absolutely. Yes, so early on the first iteration of my company, it was I I. Consider Becoming An entrepreneur, the best decision that I made in my twenties but early on in my career I was focusing on marketing and I essentially built a virtual company before I knew it was actually a thing, so this was. Way Back in the early two thousands I was. Single mom trying to make it work, and I sort of piece together the different components of marketing strategy by working with with different teams of people. And that was the first time that I learned the lesson of over commitment over promising, so I was a competent twenty-something. States and did to supplement. My own capacity was like I said I had strategic partners who did did different things, and I was pretty sure of myself about what I could do, and I was not able to anticipate the demand I focused on people who were artists trying to get their their products out to market and a lot of nonprofit work, so I ended up doing a lot of work with nonprofits, and it did not anticipate the demand for for the work, and I got myself into A. A position where I simply could not meet the demand, and it's one of those kind of great problems to have but it is really important strategically as an entrepreneur as a business person to know what you can handle and to have a plan in place for success, frankly but it did that that between the over demand based on what I had capacity. I was not able to keep that afloat. And then the economy crashed and that was all. She wrote so my first business. Venture failed kind of ethically, and it was really disappointing, but. I'm now st with growth. Yeah, that's that's great. Great Advice I mean like you said. It's a quality problem to have, but it really is a real problem you. Yes, you can suffer from lack of of business or clients, but if you over commit and can't deliver than that that goes in the wrong direction, really fast, too, so tiffany. Your book is Overcoming Bias Building Authentic. Relationships across differences and I have a feeling that when it comes to the topic of diversity and bias I've probably got a lot of listeners out there who are thinking like. Yeah, there's a lot of other people out there. They have a real problem in this area. Or they're squirming in their chair. Like Oh, this is such an uncomfortable topic to talk about and I thought the way you. Your book is very interesting that you say look everyone is biased. Everyone is biased in some ways, so what is bias? And why is it so important so by itself? Just the preference of one thing over another, let's. Hope that it's not getting a bad rap like diversity did once upon a time, because if those scare people, but it really is just a function of the human condition, if we were not able to make shortcuts. and quickly make decisions and form opinions about things. It would take us too long to deliberate. We really wouldn't survive as a species, you need to be able to look at an orange and no from your previous experience. That is not going to kill you. So bias is just you know preferring one thing over another now it's not a problem when we're talking about your favorite food, your favorite color, your favorite flavor but it does get challenging when we start having preferences about people particularly in the spaces where we're talking about things that they can't control when we get into things like protected categories engenders things like that. Gender race, religion, age having a preference for or against any anything in that territory is is definitely sketchy territory and in the workplace. That's protected, so you can't simply choose to promote somebody because they happen to share a religion with you. You if that's the reason that you promote them over someone else, that's illegal. So that's the the dangerous

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. I love it and I can feel your energy and excitement around that. That's actually how I taught myself a mandarin way back when when I was still in college and wanted to keep it up.

"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. Stay tuned to Benny. Yeah no and what? What's the best way for all of for all of them yesterday with you on twitter? I my handle his castle. Kill him you can follow me on instagram.

I've been a guest on a handful of different podcasts chatting about disability and identity side hustles and entrepreneurship leading with vulnerability and more as I record this were in the middle of a pandemic related to cove in nineteen also known as Corona virus.

"And more along the way. I've met some incredible people. People who have created space for me and for us to explore what it means to be human and I WANNA share those conversations with you. You can find me across social media at. I'm tiffany you. That's the letter I the letter M. followed by my first and last name. Now let's get today's show started. Hi everyone it's Tiffany and I wanted to say thank you for joining me in my first foray into podcasting your about to listen to my first episode which is a conversation with Janatha who's a psychotherapist in New York City. One of the great things about learning something new is that you learn lessons hard lessons after the facts and then change and pivot course as needed so the odd audio quality on our conversation is not where I would like it to be but given the timeliness of our conversation and my desire to share her expertise. I wanted to share our conversation with you with the audio as is. I hope that you're still able to get the message is shared. And I am excited for you to listen and learn. Hi everyone it's your host. Tiffany here and I am excited to introduce our first guest. She psychotherapist from New York City in an old friend of mine. Gino Mafa. Hi How are you? I'm so happy to be here with you. I'm excited that you're here is a little bit of backstory so gina and I met back in two thousand twelve at a retreats in Vermont and manage to stay in touch over the years. And you know she is just joining me on this experiment of podcasting. I couldn't be more honored. You're one of my heroes. The feeling is so mutual. So just kinda wanted to dive right in. I thought that having you on a guest was extremely time timely. Given everything that's happening right now with cope in nineteen. How are things in New York City? Thanks here are progressing in terms of more cases being Confirmed and where we're over. Fifteen thousand here. We are as of today. Which is Sunday March? Twenty second where on a not shelter in place but mandatory work from home except for essential employees Although I have to say just looking at pictures and being outside myself a lot of people are having a hard time taking this seriously which is concerning. Yeah I'm I'm getting that sentiment as well. I feel like here in California and I'm in San Francisco. We are most of us are taking it. Pretty I think being the second state to have Nineteen cases reported But one of the things. I'm kind of noticing from Maya General Community. Is General sentiment around? Everyone's just feeling really stressed and anxious overwhelmed. I am I think giving your work in the conversations that you're having. Are you noticing that as well absolutely I mean like you've heard probably all over the place? This is an unprecedented time in our entire world. Having nobody ever Tested ORB Enduring Cova nineteen. There's no rule book for it. So when you are confused you look to your leadership and your leadership really is doing it moment by moment along with you and figuring it out so it definitely increases the level of anxiety and you know I think. In general this is a time of real pendulum swinging for people. We find ourselves swinging to the extreme from being fine. Okay one minute maybe calm and rational and then back to fearing for our survival and being in total panic mode. So I don't know if you're experiencing this but a lot of people are responding this because of being in a constant state of fear and the unknown and and I think when so many so many of us are used to just controlling so many aspects of our environment. There's just so much uncertainty right now. It's actually forcing me and I feel like during this time. I've been learning a lot of lessons around really trying to understand what this word surrender. Or what what I want it to mean in my life and I think just relinquishing some of that control and trusting. That whatever is happening right now is is meant to teach US something. The long-term kind of in that place one of the things that I really appreciated that you've been doing is on social media. I think through facebook and instagram. We can plug those at the end. But you've been providing some tips over the last couple of days around how how to really manage manage those feelings of stress and anxiety and one of the things that you had chatted about was really around grief the end as someone who I lost my father as a child and over the past couple of months I've been participating in these grief. Dinners for other. People have lost parents. I did a quick check in with our group and a lot of us are really finding this time to be a little bit. Triggering necas were in this period of social distancing. And I think you know. Social distancing can sometimes mean social isolation for people and especially for those of us who are grieving and thinking about what our support system look like during those times of needing support and not not being sure where to turn. I think is is what I'm finding to be a little bit triggering during this time. So there's a couple of things there you know first. Let's talk about the experience of grief itself you know. When a person is experiencing grief that is a trauma to their body. And because of that you know your body and your emotions are actually your body itself decreases in the ability to actually control how you're feeling so when you're experiencing grief or you're being triggered by all of this just remember that there's this regulation in your body's ability to regulate its own emotions so you are gonna feel really out of control you're going to feel really vulnerable and you're gonNA feel really susceptible to sort of any emotional physical or sensory cue. That would remind you of the grief that would remind you of the feeling which is mostly helplessness. What I would say first and foremost is to really be mindful about your exposure to the news and something I'm talking with my clients about is really asking them when you're looking at the news. What is it that you're looking for? What information is that? You're that you're seeking is. It's is it something that are you looking for control? You know it's really important to know because in a lot of ways anxiety is not choice but in some ways it is so when I say be mindful about your exposure you do have the option to turn off the news and get your and get whatever news you may need or information you may need in a different way about San Francisco but here in New York City. We have A text message that we could do six nine two six nine two and we get all of the up to date. Information Straight from the governor's office so we don't eat any of the intermediary of the news at all and even really I would say. Tiff like being mindful about who you're talking to. Are you talking? Are you more anxious when you talk to a specific person? Are You more anxious After talking to somebody. Are you more anxious when you're sitting alone in silence? I mean one of the things. That's the most powerful tool is to know what's triggering you have some sort of control or at least a of semblance of control and what you can be doing and how you can control the things in your immediate surroundings that makes any sense and I will say so for those of us who are in San Francisco. You can text eight eight eight seven seven and text them all capital letters. Snow faces Kobe. Nineteen S. And you'll be getting alerts From the city and county of San Francisco related to cope in nineteen But I think to your point I actually do. Think limiting media. Use is very helpful for me. It's been really kind of depending on those text messages and really only looking at things from the CDC and the World Health Organization I think what is making a a little bit hard is on the one hand. I'm very grateful to be part of a lot of global communities that have these one hundred fifty member what's up As a result a lot of people want to inform people or spread positively positively which I think is great but on the downside of just means I'm continuously being inundated with messages and you and I chatted a little bit about this. I just feel kind of social overwhelming away of like all these people wanting to do these. Zoom Zoom checking calls or dance parties. And so for me. It's just picking and choosing what I think is is going to be the best the best thing for me at the time. And maybe it's not joining any of those calls. You know as an introvert. I think I get most of my energy from being on my own. I think really being able to check in with myself about what's going on but I also think to your point you know. This isn't really you know the grief grief can really happen. If you've experienced any type of loss and I think in one of your videos you had mentioned that. A lot of people are experiencing grief right now in terms of in terms of social distancing. Not being able to have that human connection or that human touch oh absolutely the grief of human infection can really be something that comes. As a surprise to some people people may feel like they. Just don't know what's going on but to have that touch it's it's calming it's soothing and it's also a really strong message to your brain and the vagus nerve in your brain that all is okay on the western front so to speak And I know I mean I have this video out there but if any of your listeners actually want to try any of this you know Peter Levin is somebody who I work with many many years ago and he has a lot of techniques that are self soothing in the face of real trauma and this is the fighter flight kind of trauma which I feel like we are in at times here But really what we WANNA do is just try to get that part of our brain in the place where it doesn't have to react so much can actually just be feel what it feels and somehow it lets it go so let me know if sort of at the end you want to do. Any of these exercises. Yeah if you WANNA provide kind of like one or two strategies that you think might be helpful I know that the videos were helpful to see the visual. But if there's a way to kind of explain it for our listeners. We can do that. Yeah I mean. Let's start with something pretty that that works with Since we're talking about Peter Levin let's let's get into space of kind of just feeling centered if we can so just if you can just close your eyes and put one hit one hand on your forehead in one hand on your heart..
