Did you want to get into emails or is there somewhere else you're feeling What's going to emails just because they're about Thanksgiving, and it's gonna get people head start. Sure. Yeah, it's uh How are you breaking down? You and I are in the same boat. You're a little earlier in the process than I am. But you and I are higher on the list. Um You go into work because your job demands it. Mind does not. I can work from home. Uh are are you doing anything in particular for Thanksgiving? Yeah, we're doing a Thanksgiving lunch. Yeah. So I'll be cooking up. I already got the turkey breast. So that's good to go. And I'm gonna make a relied. I'm pretty excited about that. We're looking at a lot of recipes. Yes, I'm very excited about that, Um It's uh, I've been looking for different types of rubs for the turkey. I remember 10 was talking about last week about a salon Shal rub that he had years ago. And that just I don't know that sparked my interest. I'm gonna go with the rub. Um, I'm going to do a soy Rizo, Uh, stuffing in the middle. Some people in my household can do Ah, red meat. So hey, that story. So is awesome period. It's got great flavor in it, So I believe that's I was looking for a strong flavor to put inside on Did I know Usually you go sausage or, you know, just the different in shape from The turkey s O. I thought sorry. Reason would be great. So I'm gonna go serve you so police and cranberries in there And you suggested last week about a crime. Marie Gray, Avery Grady. I think I might try that, right? Yes. Well, wonderful sound. Yeah. You know, just to get the those flavors together. I think combining those things is always nice. You know, to get The flavors of Thanksgiving in the way they marry in people, you know, often think, Okay, we have to do this in this particular pattern pattern, and you really don't you don't have to do cranberry in the traditional way could make a cranberry Vinaigrette or something like that for your salad. You can do things that bring all the flavors together. But don't have to be the traditional ways on. I encourage people to do that. Just try different things. But that sounds like a lot of fun. How many is it Just you and Megan. It's would be a three in total. Yes, my mommy at Megan. Um and myself so far before Yeah, I was gonna say you gotta work on my county. Yeah, that's ah causes a little problem there, but that's all right. So ultimately you know, you can't or you go it by the looks of things so far, I think it's just gonna be Tracy Max.

My mom in a very rare occasion are the only people that have kind of been in my circle. A zit been very small. I haven't seen the majority of my family and all this time. I haven't seen the majority my family in almost a year. Um Except, you know, video and like, but s so I think it's gonna be pretty mellow here, too. But I'm determined to cook. Probably a small turkey. I thought maybe I do a chicken, but I really love having turkey leftovers do chicken. Amanda, did you hear? I did. It was kind of a A. I don't know what you're gonna say. A cackle. Thanks. E Got you said it. I didn't say that. You can't do you just can't. I mean, like, get a turkey breast or something. Unless your turkey I adore that Amy.

Here's here's the The thing is, what's the thing? Well, my wife is she eats a little chicken, but she doesn't feel like turkey, so I thought, Well, if there's only three of us some nice we'll make something that all of us can enjoy. But she Really doesn't like She thinks Thanksgiving is the worst holiday. Ever. What I know she is not a big food person. She just thinks she is just a lot of stuff she doesn't like, and she has to sit around. Watch Everybody eat it. No, I know. That's that's my point. Maybe she could just not indulge and sit back and enjoy the company. She's gonna be with me, Really, if it's not the food It's certainly not going to be the company. Yeah, she said. She's cut it screwed. It's like Oh, I'm going to sit here and enjoy my husband. How about the foot and it's, uh I feel bad for her, but, um, yeah. Back to the dumb chicken idea. Yeah. Go ahead.

We're not going to celebrate as long as we usually mean. We usually kind of make it a day. That's not happening this year. Is it if they're gonna be booze involved? Little girl. What do you think you're talking to know? It'll go longer. No. Yeah, we're gonna know outside. We've never done that before. We've way used to hang out outside when we were doing the fried turkeys.

Because the sounds of things there's no news pretty slow news day, right, Amy? Oh, my gosh. I'm so bored. Yeah, So if you hear snoring, that's Amy. With nothing to do anything. You need to know any press conferences. Anything that come up. Of course they will pop in on DH. Just remember this. This is not a political statement. This is a Patriot statement. That candidates win and lose America does not every time we get to voice our opinions on and vote if you go through the history of voting, and you see The lengths that people went to get their opportunity to vote, whether it be the women's suffrage movement or are black and brown brothers and sisters in any of those things that have taken place. Is not a perfect country. But man, I'll be damned if it's not a great country, And regardless of where you sit on what side the fact that we get to vote, and there's always gonna be people that feel like I think my voice wasn't hurt, but it wass And it just means that empathy maintains for all of us to look at each other and say I get it you have needs and you voted on those needs and we're going to support those and stand with you'll move forward as a country and I pray to God That is it regardless of where you land politically, you are still in American first and should be an American first and Ah, thank God. The process is what it is. And ah I just proud to be an American today not because one side of the other one, but because the process did what the process is supposed to do. So let's now shake off that stuff and get to Ah. What we always love. And that is this time of year is food related. We don't know what We have no idea what Thanksgiving is going to look like. My brother reached out to me, my brother Daniel, and he said, Hey, you given any thoughts, toe? It's Thanksgiving, and I'm like I am so my head is not there, man. I cannot wrap my head around that concept yet. I don't know what it's gonna look like. I doubt highly that we will see anybody but our immediate family. I e. In this case, it would be Tracy, Max and me. So I just don't know how we do it safely on. It's hard with a child who will be turning, you know, forth the end of this month, my son Max. Keep it. He doesn't understand it yet. So he's going to want to go around running. So even if we did safe distancing, even if we did you know something California you did something at a beach. Or a public place where there's air, and you could say, I just don't know. So you're probably in the same boat I'd love to hear from you would find out what you're doing, or if you have any Thanksgiving questions. Idea's Ah, for anything. Give us call 805 to 01534. That's 805 to 01 Ko Phi 805 to 01534 Mondo is Manning the phones is only a mondo man, tin man. And we'd love to hear from you. As to what you're thinking about cooking or how you might change things. This your If you need any tips or ideas, give us a call. We'd love to talk to you as well. So go ahead and we'll get some of that on there. Ah, I don't know. Mondo. Ifyou're able Tio chat as well. But you are maybe not because I am right next. Okay, so Did we want? We'll get into additional week a little bit later. But is there anything that strikes you? Are you doing Thanksgiving a little different this year. Yeah, I am. So it's ah, Marie, you know, toned down. Not going to make a huge feast has always but I'm kind of looking forward to it Only because I've been looking at Ah, tricky press Roland that have been really dying to do for awhile, man, huh? Yeah, I know. So now for for those roulade is a fancy term for rolling that bad boy up. Yes, so sometimes it's cut. Then sometimes it's Tenderized or pounded thin. But ultimately what you end up doing is filling it and then rolling it almost like a cinnamon roll. But a savory one with the protein being in this case, the chicken you can do it with steak and all kinds of things and you're filling it with. So what? What would be your Your filling. I'm thinking a lot of Ah, also, I'm thinking about doing a stuffing because I've never really had a stuffing always made dressing, which is Geralyn cooked outside, not inside the turkey. So Q. I'm looking at a stuffing and then covering up with either bacon. Or I put this in our notes, prosciutto or in shadow on the outside to keep it moist. Yeah, that's gorgeous, very similar to how people will put bacon on the outside of a turkey win. Cooking it to do the same thing. Keep those juices in. And the fats from those things going in. Now I have a question for you, Mr Smarty pants. Yes, sir. Dressing outside the bird stuffing inside the bird. Once you make dressing and then eat this, the dressing doesn't become stuffing. No, you become stuff. Bazinga are already off to a good start. All right, So you've got the pressure on the outside are pancetta on the outside in this case. You got this looks great or just roast, You know, Brown it on the outside when ah Either pot and then put in the oven and just let it rose..

"To overcome. You must educate. Educate. Not only yourself. But educate anyone seeking to learn. We, are all dead American. We can all learn something. To learn. We must challenge what we already understand. The way we do. That is through conversation. Sometimes we have conversations with others. However. Some of the best conversations have. With ourselves. Reach out in Challenger so. Let's dive in and learn something right now. And always were lucky to have tracy Max filled with us. I'M GONNA, turn it over to Tracy Tracy just explain who she is and what she does. Okay so originally, I was born in Wales in the United Kingdom I, became a nurse, I moved Canada one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven, and I've lived here at sense. worked an enormous in right through until December thirty first two, thousand, nineteen when I took early retirement. in Twenty fifteen after four and a half years of experience in quite intense workplace bullying I experienced an acute depressive episode or a nervous breakdown. And ended up going off work and. It was probably the worst experience of my life a very, very bad depression multiple suicide attempts sucide ideation. Through what the healing process I ended up writing a book about my journey, and after the book was published I actually was asked to speak with some teenagers. And it was through the but that my new purpose, my new life Janina Call, it began I realized how to be at the problem of bullying mental illness suicide was so prevalent amongst children and teenagers and young adults, and so in twenty seventeen I kind of decided I was going to take a leap of faith. And see if I could be the voice for the youth. That led to my goodness, a monthly newsletter YouTube video with blog posts traveled to the UK Canada and the United. States. On TV radio and podcasts talking about my work. And in March this year I launched my own podcast engage educate empower. which has weekly guests and we talk about the like challenges date today issues that our kids face around the world. So we talk about Foster Care, drug addiction and adoption and human trafficking suicide bullying mental illness. It's we go through the whole gamut and ultimately it's to engage, educate and empower them. Yeah, and that's total different rabbit hole that you are jumping into in experiencing the challenges. We face as podcasters. It's a unique challenge in itself and on top of that. We try to like your podcast says, engage educate empower others. So. It's a blessing to have your podcast amongst the million on I tunes. That's for sure I know I listened to it. I encourage others to look that odd cast up get involved with that odd cast because it's changing lives. A little bit at a time that's the idea and tracy. What do you think about this podcasting journey so far? Well, it's interesting because when I started my new life junior say I went I have been on so many podcasts in fact, I think it was lost May when it was in Kansas that I went on your podcast America. And I believe this woman recording is my seventeen ninth podcast. So it's it's funny because I've become very comfortable and quite used to be in podcast guest. But when I decided to become a podcast host I was look at people had been telling me to do it for so long and I made so many connections the when I finally took that the buffet. I was excited but I was nervous because as you know when you're sitting on the other end microphone, a neo listening to your guests, the focus is on the guest and my concern was identified tolkien too much. It it's trying to find that balance. That you have equal back-and-forth contribution but I also think it's interesting when you have a guest on the Peretti connected with on before and you have a good relationship, I find the podcast goes very, very easily. And it's very comfortable and we have fun when I don't know the person and I'm just really had a bio sent to me. Sometimes it's difficult to make that connection. And I'm sure you've noticed that to a that's challenging because you you have to bring out the best in your guests and you want to share the information that is so important for for your audiobooks. That is a very big challenge. You know fitting with each and every guest because like you said, you want the full gammit involved to get your message across. So everybody. Can Be involved, and that's what podcasting really is about in finding that perfect balance not easy die I jump into podcasting. It was two thousand seven and I've been baby stepping from then on. And I still find it challenging and. Connections that's very unique. Each time time you connect you build a different sort of relationship. And new challenges come with it. But yet, you've got a whole new audience you're directing your message. And that's what I find unique. Now I've. Done a lot of monologue podcasting and that's just get me comfortable with the microphone. Now I'm finding when you go out interviewing that's a whole different challenge like you said, and that balance is not easy but. You have such talent, the ability to keep going. That's the key to a great podcast you're going to develop those skills. And those challenges will go away. The challenges in the mind. That's the one that I find challenging. You know you've put a lot of work into each and every podcast. You know really serious about it and I know. That's a passion of yours. So, we need to as podcasters support each other and I find that's not really prevalent in this podcasting industry yet, there's a lot of good people out there. Pushing good things. But the unification of podcasters? Really complete yet..

"How I see the world around me and how I interact with people and what a gift that is to to be a part of someone even though you're not there with them right totally agree and So that's why I'm curious. So goal of the book is what do you do? You have a goal for the book or goals for the Book I. I don't know 'cause I've never written book. Are there such a thing as goals for books? I don't know this sounds like a silly question to me but I thought now it seems relevant but now after a year so no for sure Well I had that cliche goal of if only one person read this book and it impacts their life then I will have not wasted dealt last year's four four five years of my life. Okay home why is it a cliche goal? Because that's my goal for the show. Now you make me sound like I'm pleased. One person downloads this show and changes their live. Oh I've completed myself as a podcast or wow shade on my goaling. Wow we're trichet together. Then we can be cliche together. I mean it. I didn't mean interrupted but but is there. Nobody thinks that like really the heart of why I wanted to write. I said you know what I want US share. This story is if I don't share it then. Nobody knows the struggles that I and the many young women that have. I've spoken with have gone through and make health is something that is rarely spoken about candidly in a group setting. Yeah you might discuss it your your youth group or in my come up in a health lesson at school but it's not something that a family will sit down on a Friday night and say. Hey let's talk about your mental health today But a book can allow for that conversation to be sparked and again rating. This was my hope that those conversations would be sparked for teens with each other but also with their parents That we give light to the fact that mental health and particularly anxiety is something that is very prevalent in that if we don't acknowledge it and allow people to work through those fears That it can get worse and it can lead to really dark place So that was. That was my hope. that it could offer A starting point for conversations That it would allow faith to be involved within that mental health. Call Shin as well I really wanted to acknowledge the fact that as someone who comes from a health care background on who did a lot of Education around sort of the bio psychosocial model of health that faith can be a component of that and should be a component of that when it comes to looking at someone's overall wellbeing That was that was a really big part of my healing journey in Seoul again. This story hopefully will allow people to recognize that is one other addition that they should be taken into consideration when they're looking at their mental health and how they can improve. Yeah and as I was hearing more of your story and more of your creative writing process through different Shows that you've been on and just different things that you've been talking about. Donnelley this book but your story it. Kinda got be thinking of another author we had on and I don't know if you know her her name's Tracy Max field. Because you know. I don't know Canada's not as big as the United States. Just kidding I have no idea on. Somebody's gonNA write on that. One graphically were big but no our population is quite small compared to yours correct. That's kind of what I was thinking. But but anyway we had tracy maximum lawn and she wrote a book and she's also from Canada and she wrote a book called escaping the rabbit hole her journey through depression. And to me when I was hearing some your story. I'm like you know what? Tracy's book may be geared for kind of adults maybe and and things of that nature and I thought here's a book that could potentially be you know a great outlet for young people because I've youth background youth pastor in my in my resume as well and so for me hearing that there's someone out there putting some thoughts together in some ways of dealing with this together in a very constructive way was powerful to me and I'm excited that you were willing and emboldened to do this and and kind of answered the call right and so that's leads into my next question is what do you hope readers take away from this because obviously you felt called to do this but what are you really. Hope people take away. Yeah well thanks for sharing that We'll definitely because I work in Youth Ministry as well and I definitely hope that it encourages teens from within the church As well as beyond to be more open to discussing their mental health I really hope that it is a fun way for them to read about someone who is going through these struggles in their own life I know that learning about mental health sometimes can be daunting. And so the idea of writing it from a fictional standpoint Is a little bit less intimidating? So I'm really hoping that teens can take this and say you know I can read this just for fun? And maybe something comes out of it that will apply to my life and Hopefully can then use towards other people in my life The ideal situation Theus story is one where again? She's discovering her own Faith as well as her own journey towards forgiveness and recognition of her purpose in the world and those are really big themes I recognize that But the hope would be that some teams can see within her story A small piece for themselves in the world that they can recognize that their own story is worth sharing and that it can have a huge impact on just even their friends in their own social circle and by by being brave enough to share. Their words doesn't have to be through writing It could be through any creative outlet could just be through conversation That they can have a profound impact on not only their future But all their friends as well as The larger world and I think sometimes we forget that you know relationships are so key to this gospel message that we hold as Christians and we are just. We're called to be in relationships with people and one of the best ways we can do that is by seeing. Those relationships lived out And again that story. The story is just something that allows them to see broken relationships. Lived out Because there's a lot of focus at the beginning of the book for sure And recognizing that even within that broken state that they can still be used And that they can have amazing impact with the things that they might not see a special in themselves But that got US put in their lives for a reason to be used for real unique purposes so small example without giving anything away via Has this compassionate side to her. She doesn't really recognize what is used for But she always buys an extra cup of tea and by buying an extra couple of for people she ends up. Bring a lot of joy through small act of kindness and it's so tiny but it has a profound impact over the course of the book And that's something that she doesn't understand why it's been placed on her heart to do this other than the fact. She had a grandmother who has recently passed And she always loved tea and loved sharing a cup of tea with someone So that whole theme gets extended through end. You just get to see a beautiful opportunity for something so small to grow and spark conversations in a number of people's lives. I gotta be honest. I'm intrigued right now. I I wanna read it with the. I don't know like what a kid right to to buy a cup of tea for someone. Yeah well. It's she's young right. I mean what? What's her age in the book? She Sixteen. I mean what sixteen year old just goes around randomly and buying cups of tea for people. I know there's not many I know no and though this little things that people do in different ways that we wouldn't even necessarily recognize Like I know a lot of teens. One Who randomly sends text messages to people. Just letting them know that she's praying for them and why didn't encouragement like she sends it at the most amazing timing and that is so small in how much effort it takes doesn't cost or anything but has a huge impact for people in. There's somebody else who likes to make videos. And he does it just because it's his passion and he highlights friends artwork and their music through these youtube videos and meanwhile he's giving a platform to people who would probably never have been brave enough to do it on their own So yeah there's I think there's lots of way that people have these these gifting these small parts of themselves that they may every once in a while let others see but if we encourage not only teens but everybody to find something you know gives them joy for whatever reason and then to again spread it out into the world. What an amazing impact. We could have right and again for FIA. This is something that affects her own mental health through these experiences And it's not just something she's doing because Hey I'm supposed to do something nice today. So I'm going to buy someone not but it's just a habit that she is cultivated and through that habit. She's growing herself And there's again at another aspect of the story I won't go into too much detail But she starts to recognize those people who are needing of that a little bit more than others through a sort of magical realism element that again. It won't go into much detail because it's exciting to find out while you're eating. I'm one of those retail reads the.

"Hinges on the fact of me being able to convince somebody not that. It's a good idea that they do something right. You are a salesman of sorts in a sense. Yeah and so from that standpoint. I think it's really opened my eyes and ears to the idea of really understanding where someone's coming from and I think that's really what birth birth the show in a sense because I was really hearing all of these stories from people all day long whether stories being like they're telling me a story like they're lying or a story from. Hey here's what my experiences. Here's what's happening in my life because I don't know maybe I'm unique in this regard. Maybe this is how God's wired me I don't know but people tell me that things and I don't mean dumbest things like this dismissing their their account but people just tell me things they just share share their life with me like I ask a question and they vomit on me word vomit percent and and it's always been that way and and I don't take credit for that. I don't know where that comes from except from God because I don't have that ability on my own but I think what what the big thing I've learned from doing doing. This show is to gain really game perspective. I really believe that and I not only say that on the show. I really believe that that everyone in life has perspective and I think once we we as Cliche as this has become maybe for us. Hopefully it never becomes cliche but I really do feel like once. I am in someone else's shoes in understanding where they've come from. Yeah I think I've seen them differently. Love them differently and experience their life differently like that thanks is. This came up that I really do believe that. It's not just something I say I mean I really believe it because I really do. My heart is to help. A heart is never to hurt in you know that I. I think that's another big reason why you wanted to start. The show was because you needed a verbal outlet. But the reason why you're so variables because you want to get to know people and you want. I don't know where you can help. And that's it right. I WANNA I WANNA help somebody and if there's something in my life that I that I've gone through that I've experienced this happened to me. That can help somebody. I want to share that knowledge. Why don't you share them? The starfish story. We don't it's time for this story but But essentially starfish stories. I'll make it as fast as I can. This is a reader's digest really fast version of it so I came across this story a years ago and I remember where I found or saw but I mean it's on the Internet you could Google starfish story but essentially the story is a man's walking his dog along the beach. So will you know picture you're on a beach and it's really Nice Day and as the man walks along you know. He sees all these starfish washed up on the shore and he sees in the distance. You know now I don't know good ways away from him this figure of sorts throwing something what appears to be back into the water and so as he gets closer because you know he wants to know the why hi right. Why is this guy doing this much? Like me must like any of us. We would want to know the why so as he gets closer. He realizes it's this little boy and he looks at the boy. Amy So what. What do you think you're doing and The boy says well you know. I don't know if you know this Mr but these starfish washed up last night. And if they don't get back into the water they'll die in. The man looks at him very stunned and puzzles aces. So so what is it that you're doing then do you. Do you really think you can save all these starfish starfish. Because there's hundreds of them there's maybe even thousands of them and a little boy picks up one kind of pauses for second Z.. Looks at the starfish examining it and he chucks back in the water and he says well I made a difference with that one and I think that's what I want in life right. I want starfish moments. I want moments on the show. Oh where somebody goes man. That really changed me and I hope for that. I prayed for that I ask for that I I begged for that. I do whatever it it takes to get that because I want that moment I want someone to walk away feeling like after hearing the show. I'm a different person. I remember when you first shared with that story I think it was in a period of transition your life we were all getting together as co workers I can't remember exactly it was but You're asked to give a little speech. I think it was a mocking but You you came up and told that story and I was just in there going. Wow what am I say Ritz. Okay well on that. I think since it's Christmas. It's only befitting. I got you a gift. I got you something. So let's see it hopefully like by the way is horribly wrapped it and taped it together so good luck and opening it a little bit of going here. You can't really see this but the wrapping is white. It's tissue paper real issue banker wrapping tissue paper with clear packaging Dave. Because I'm a a man that's how we package things. Goodness Oh my word. This is awesome so you can't see it but we'll post a picture online so you can see it and it is a series of dice and they are all different color color while there's black and Kinda teal ish kind of light blue color and that is the closest I can come to your Carolina blue so cool so so we're going to have to come up with some more questions for game senseless for sure. I like that idea of having multiple questions now. I'm actually expanding it to the eight expanding it to something. I don't know just all now. You gotta a D Four D Six d meaning decides for six eight twelve and two different tens and twenty. I liked that. So maybe we'll find like the fifty like most important questions of all time or something or maybe we'll have people submit questions we'll do we'll do something fun with that for next year for sure we'll Garrett in knowing that we are going to be talking about Christmas. I decided to give you from Tracy Max field the hook she signed for me for this show. I don't even think it's personalized. It's not but I want you to have this. We had two copies copies. We gave one away at the end of October as part of our October promotion and she was a great guest by the way she was phenomenal. I love her accent.

We'll see if we can make that work Any last thoughts. I'll give you. Well let me ask you if you ask me the question back. Who would I have on again? Boy howdy there's so many I don't know I don't know yet. Okay I'll l.. Fill in for you because I thought of the second one. I'd like Michael Back On. Okay I thought Michael had a really really good story was really real with us and he. It just seems like a really cool guy I I love just hearing them. Talk about the stuff that it's such a different perspective for me. It really is And he just who was really really neat. I love during crystal. They're great people. They are amazing people. I probably it hasn't happened yet. But maybe a little foreshadowing shattering and we're not foreshadowing like anything because we haven't made this happen yet. But maybe Joe we want one. ooh I'm sure we could work that we can maybe work that out joy one on one would think it would depend on against crystal great too. I feel like we're you know. Maybe the better half of the two but but Julia one on one I think joey has some some some cool stories and some cool experiences has happened yet but depending on what direction you WanNa take the show for that season Yeah I could see that definitely working you. I mean we all. Yeah but you're a lot of the creative flow in dominant force in this podcast ceremony. Even wow I don't know so As we wrap up here and I know we say it a lot and I don't want to ever not say it. This show doesn't happen without. Oh you this show doesn't take place without you it really doesn't and and I think that's that's what I'm so grateful for this. Christmas season is the fact that you know how the show came together the stories. I could tell you of you know the microphone. I'm talking on right now to see now. Is it two hundred and fifty dollar microphone that was given to me as a gift You know the the mixer board that that we were able to to get Wasn't a gift. Wish it was but but it was able to be afforded because of other things that happened. You know we had a great sponsor in our third season art art of plumbing and and really. That was so awesome. That opened so many doors for us to do this. Show financially He's my brother-in-law. Ah I haven't ever said that to you That's disclosure full disclosure but But on that rory believes in me believed in the show believed in what we were doing and guys. That's what I wanNA leave you with. Is who this next year. Can you believe then who this next year. Can you put into. WHO This next year? Can you help maybe reshape. Their identity reshape author vision of who they are redefined. Maybe their identity and I'm going to be honest with you if you choose to do that and again. It's a choice just just like life. We all have choices right. Be Aware there is going to be a cost to you. There may be a financial cost. There may be a time cost. There may be a WHO who knows but it is going to. It's going to take time even for you to do that if you choose to do that and I just want to help you understand that. That's what this show's all about. We are striving each and every week each and every month to one give you the best show we can but also to bless you in so many ways and I know we say it so often but but it is so worth repeating and that's this is really when you walk when you walk and you choose. WHO's to walk in someone else's shoes I guarantee and aren't very many guarantees in this life? But I guarantee you really will get a different perspective on life. It's just how it happens. It is GonNa Happen to you so let me challenge you this if I can leave you with a challenge this this next year define your vision define what it is that you want to do with your life find that.

You are so amazing and I just want to pause you there because you just walked us through an entire journey of recovery from depression in I won't say ten minutes and I really just WanNa pause that there because because you were able to simplify it in such a way and where we get lost in the darkness is by complicating it yes yes. It's so incredible. The way you use the imagery of nature the way you did with the students students the way it brought us through the tunnel and how powerful simplicity can be and being so present to the miracle of life and the phenomenon that it is any changes you because then you you don't understand in what values to the most important and it's kindness and respect and understanding compassion and and also acknowledging that when you see a person you cannot judge that person you have no idea what was going on in their life and you know I say on my skype I have a little mantra and sprinkled kindness everywhere kindnesses free.

"We're GONNA talk about that Tracy but I wanNA keep introducing you I. I'm anybody who's I as a teacher and also going through school with a lot of different nurses that care in that giving I I just thirty seven years. I completely honor that so that number alone I just was over that as a as such feet but board in the UK and then moving going to Canada in eighty seven tracy is now traveling the US in early sharing a valuable lesson really wants to reinforce that life will get better when you truly believe and so- Tracy thank you so much for being here. I would love to ask you to share white took you to the places that you've lived lived in travels well. Let's begin at the beginning shall we I grew up in an extremely dysfunctional is functional and abusive family and so endured quite significant abuse primarily emotional verbal abuse on my life attached to always wanted to be a nurse at the age of five wanted to come to America live in the USA and so I think to up the the abuse those with the two goals even though I was very young I had these gold and I kept working toward some and then after I qualified as Xenos in Wales in the United Kingdom I decided to come to Canada and so I- arrived in nineteen eighty seven sin said always have worked as the most in various areas specifically Gerontology palliative care and dementia moved around most of western Canada nut was with my now ex but my then husband and I would say the organization that I that was my last employer I worked with practically fourteen years and around two thousand eleven eleven. I was offered a new position as a team leader. Gerry stressful position in the hospital and it was time that I started the two encounter workplace and my bullet was superior and it kind of continued until stride I would say in twenty fifty it got so bad that my health salted to suffer and it culminated or twentieth twenty fifteen with experiencing a massive Spigham or falling down the rabbit rabbit hole took me a while to get out of that episode of depression of had suicide temps constant suicide idealization and about a year end to therapy when I finally started to see a possibility stability but chink of light my psychologist suggested why didn't you stop putting some of your thoughts and feelings into a blog post because every time I would go. I would say you know people don't believe that I'm depressed. They look at me and they say oh you look fine and this written healthcare professionals and it was very very challenging to try and convince them. No you don't understand like my brain is shocked and so they he says it will put it in the blog. Invite them to to read it and express yourself and so took me a few weeks ago. I don't know if I want to expose myself you know but everyone you want to read but I did. I put up my first blog post and immediately. I got such positive feedback and so it propelled from there every week I would continue my block. Posts eventually going back to the incident that led to the whole my first suicide attempt and every time I would feed back saying we didn't realize even a stock does that. This is what depression is really like and also oh you know you should put this in the book. It was always the end up. You should put this in a book and I didn't really think about it until twenty seventeen when I have the opportunity to connect with a lady that published her own books and I contacted her instead. We know everyone's telling me my blog should become a book. If you take a look at it. Can you give me anonymous dancer and she said Joe so I sent my blog posts to her and three hours later she contacted me and said I got an editor and so I wanNA pause right there because it's so mazing the way that when you just like opened up a kind of opened the floodgates yes yes and before we knew it you had written a book exactly and I mean it still feels surreal even to this day and so yes S. O. the book was released last April Twenty eighteen and I think it was within about three weeks. I was action by each go go to a school to talk to some teenagers and the real race mile was asked was to talk to an English class to discuss discuss how they can use their emotions and describe them using images from nature to help them write better essays because throughout the book you You don't my brain I competitive from erupted okay no and things like that and so when I went in I had taken in my book this lots of illustrations and I'd had them enlarged for the book release Toddy so I decided to take them and I had eight of them when I displayed them behind me and immediately ah the tone in the room change it was full of fifteen year old and I could share them saying that's what I feel like. Oh my goodness. That's what my mum says. She feels like and there was a lot of chatter about what the diagram showed and basically the diagrams you can go to my website. They're all on that but that black and white very simple figures and it conveys an emotion when words are not necessary so it's like a stick big running away from a huge dark black cloud a two hands distraction out from the cloud to grab the says how you feel it and the words not good is trying to escape the black cloud and I started to talk about my book and when they immediately started raising their hands it wasn't to talk about descriptive adjectives or anything like that it was. How did you know we have depression? What did you do when you wanted to kill yourself? My mother has depression. How can I help her and so for the next hour it was just token to the kids about bullying and suicide and mental illness how they were feeling and what to do and I think it really surprise the teacher h? O. Because it was such a ticket very intelligent Karen Christians and at the end of it she kinda came to gene apologized and said. I didn't think this is what the class was going to be about and I said no it shows that they know it's an issue and they want to look at the mall and then two weeks later they invited me back for their old as human library which is kind of like triage day and you sit at the table. Well and the students would have signed up ahead of time to spend thirty minutes talking with you on so I arrived eleven to fifteen so scoops sat down at age thirty I was there as a sign on the table said Tracy Max field publisher author and so I thought talking about how to write a book you know just like they're looking at each other like what she looking. I don't I'm thinking Oh Kay what's going on here so I paused on. I said you will seem a little confused. Can I ask why oh you signed up at my table and finally one girl plucked up the courage in. She said we should about you from English class. You'll the lady that escaped the Robert Hall. I'm want you to tell us how you did it and so at a thirty minutes anywhere from six to twelve kids sat down for eight hours and it was all about mental illness bullying sucide what could they do. Where should they go who can help them? How can they help the friend and at the FBI session was getting ready for the next session? Somebody would stay behind a WanNa talk to me probably with gate and the reason I'm on this journey is to specific kids that came in confided fighting did me this one was fifteen year old girl stunningly beautiful long red hair let forward and asked me where she could get my book and I said why don't actually give you a copy and I'll sign it an awesome sung in it she whispered in my career. I just come home from hall until after my second suicide attempt and proceeded to lift up her arms and show me all the Kuttan and I thought fifty two suicide attempts that's like we can't even fathom it and and then towards the end of the day a thirteen year old by she didn't participate in the group he looked very uncomfortable and was very isolated from the US and he stood at the end to the room and he came up to me and he was very very embarrassed stammering and stuttering and said can I talk to you and I said it of course you can how can I help and he fell into my shoulder solvent his daughter out and he said to me. I've been in the rabbit hole seven the news. When will I escape? Oh my gosh hold hon because my heart is bursting over here. I I just I just want to pause to acknowledge you for what you're doing just and and I want you to go on but I'm so moved because I've been as gifted to get to do that. Work in talk to kids in it is pure magic agic it is it's -nology yeah keep going and I mean a took him aside and spoke to him. I believe twenty minutes because he was in such distress and all the time there was a teacher and the council kind of walking around us the kind of like the raptors actors from Jurassic Park. Neither of them came in intervened and he didn't want to go and see them. He wanted to talk to okay so what he'd come down and have a chat and explain some things and he was he felt much pride. I mean he thanked me and he went off to the next class. I went in. I I finished my day and as get an up to go that school counselor came in plunked down at the table and said you know that wasn't isn't your job you. We didn't ask you come here to talk to the students and counsel them. That's not your job. That's mine and I said I didn't come hundred the council they asked me questions I offered them support and pointed them in the direction where to go and she said well that one meaning the teeny road by he's got so many problems he's lost. Kohl's Doke wish to time on him and that was I I was so furious I mean and she'd the school counselor and he's a lost cause though gene and I he said Oh my goodness that's why he wouldn't come to see 'cause I offered to take him and he he said I don't like her..

She's an author and that's why she's coming on today. She's going to be talking about her book escaping the Rabbit Hole. My journey through depression helped me welcome my guest Tracy Tracy Max Field Tracy how are you. I'm good thank you. How are you better than I deserve. I was like this say so tracing creasing. Where are you today. I if we can as of as of this phone call up this phone call. I am in Colona British Columbia Columbia in Canada. So you're our first international guest on our show so we're going to celebrate that for a minute. Thank you for being I. I'm excited about that. Yeah Oh Canada Canada when I was a when I was a elementary school I I was a big fan of hockey still sort of am not as much as I should be but but I was a big fan of the Winnipeg jets so that's my only Canadian connection. Shen and then in the world series back in the Oh gosh this is dating me ninety two ninety three era. I was a big Blue Jays fan because I loved Toronto Baseball in the Blue Jays Joe Carter. I remember those world series that that the Blue Jays went back to back with the braves and then the phillies so there we are you're so there's my Canada connection if there is one I I don't know we're GonNa talk one maybe but but tracy thanks so much for coming on today and and we got asked his very important question before we get too far down down into into your story and all that and that's this treaty. What size shoes do you wear. Are you seven okay all right. I think that's about average for for most women from what I'm hearing and then Tracy. Do you have VIP special shoes that you wear stylish you that you just loved aware that when you wear them you're like yeah. I'm feeling good now. Yeah heels high heels high heels okay all right. I'm Strut your stuff. I I like it. I joked that we we're actually in your shoes. So for my listeners don't try to picture me and high heels in strutting their stuff right about now would be completely inappropriate. Yeah no not not going there not at all so so tracy. I want to jump into this right away. I'm not one of those that likes the weight in the water. I'm a cannibal kind of Guy said that a few times too but right but here we go so tracy your books amazing thing. I know it's doing really well for you. It selling like crazy. You're winning awards. You know and we're going to get into that obviously to but but I gotta ask because I've heard heard a couple of interviews that you've given high personally have not read the book so maybe we can. We can talk about that. I'd love to get a copy. Perhaps read it myself personally but I am not ready yet in full disclosure so so with that being said I am curious about this. Can we really trust feelings. Can I personally trust my feelings. Can you personally personally trust your feelings. In endure feelings. Betray us a tough question. I trust my my feeling but I think the challenge is with everything got those on in the world and with what we're dealing internally. I think we sometimes misinterpret off feelings and we act maybe a little a little bit too reactive instead of taking it step back and becoming more proactive and analyzed. I've had to learn to do that so so that's a learned skill in in learning to be as you say proactive in those steps right. I think I mean as human beings. We all all know that we want to be like dry. We want to be known to do a bathroom people to like us and whenever something happens to us we personalize it and we internalize it and that in itself creates the sadness and the anger undo the anxiety and the stress and the depression and the mall we react not respond or interpret of feelings. I think that's why it it can become kind of skewed right. I'm sad I am angry by you. What is the cause of that and I don't think a lot of people actually sit back and think why is it that they're angry because as you know you may be angry how to post them but it's really not about the person it stood up something maybe from you passed or something that happened weeks ago that you know attaching to that person. Does that make sense. I think it does is anger really like guess secondary emotion. Do you feel like or is anger. Primary emotion a lot of times just on that topic of anger. I think Anga is a anger is the second emotion in response to the primary but many people mistake it as the primary okay so there's a saying that depression is anger turned inland. See that again if you wouldn't mind say that seeming again. I really liked all said there so there is a San where they say depression depression is really Anga turned inlets yeah so your reaction expand sorry to cut you off. Is that your experience with that. I think partly yes it would be because but my initial research the initial thoughts with the shirt and the and blame but really it's still translates into it it was anger towards the bully for what she had done they'd gotten away with so and since that explored my past it's the anger the abuse and do it of the child has led to old the other four feelings emotions that I've experienced since then and so yes. I think the core it's angered. That's never dealt with yeah yeah. I just on a little side note with me. I grew up as a very angry child. I know you mentioned in as I said a couple of different toxic you've given and that you've gone through counseling gone through some some kind of self awareness of of helping you get through these feelings right and so you know. I I myself I. I raised my I've been to counseling and it's tough I mean to to really dig into who we are and really dig into the the essence of who you are. I think is something all of us should do and I and I love that you're working with that and I love that. You're working with young people too. That's a passion of mine also and I'm excited that you've given a lot out of young people especially in Canada not only in Canada but but even in the US a sense of a voice and helping them find their voice and I think from that standpoint tracy as you're doing some some excellent work in that regard and I'm really pleased again to to have you on so tracing two dates jump out to me and maybe they'll jump about got it to you when you hear them. August twentieth two thousand fifteen and then April thirtieth two thousand eighteen. Why are those dates important to you feel like August twentieth twenty steamers the day I found out in the and then April twenty eighteen you said April thirteen twenty eighteen April thirtieth two dozen eighteen yeah was the day my book was published was the Book Release Party so yes still two very significant dates a kind of a beginning which then how to conclusion Russian and days that I never ever imagined whatever happened I I never ever in my wildest dreams sport. AM would write a book also when I was in the rabbit hole not for one minute. Did I ever feel like that advocate out 'cause it was it was died. Intent that soup was so claustrophobic an overwhelming and just suck the life out of me and one of the reasons reasons why I finally decided to write the book it was just to me because I couldn't imagine how other people people out there going through what I did and thinking that they would never have that and there was no hope and I wanted to be kind of that vice that said yes you will you will will you got to trust me. You GotTa believe me. I made it out and I honestly never thought I would and you can't to and I think that was that was kind of Yeah I. I think that's great. Could you if you're willing. Could you take me back to that day. On April Twentieth Sorry August Twentieth Twentieth. Could you take me back to that day that moment that that everything just kind of I don't WanNa say imploded but I I don't have another word to describe it so basically it was the culmination of four and a half years. I've been ten workplace bullying which had escalated to extremes on that day I'm eighteen had been called by my a bully under the pretense of me returning to my my job that she had wrongly removed me from eight weeks eight weeks previously and so she had been instructed by the hierarchy that she had no business doing and I was to return to my job and it was to talk about me return to work and when I went in I had to union reps with me because I I my I have read good instinct and my gut instinct told me this was not going to be a good meeting by any means and when we sat down she opened an enormous file folder and immediately began with I want you to know that you'll return into work but everyone everyone hates you. A No one wants shoebox. I've spoken to every single person in the hospital and everyone is glad that you cannot now. Can you imagine sure that I mean I was worn down with house it whilst with just all the the constant bullying and then the exclusion and isolation nation which I was subjected to and I was very very good at my job and actually I was very popular and well respected and to be told a bit every single person that was when I could feel like a little crack start in my heart and and from that point on it was one and a half hour personal slurs and insults false Asana.

And they they follow him like crazy. And they're always post in these pictures of oh today drinking this yard or today. I'm having this wonderful breakfast. Or look at me. I'm on this beach in this is just the pictures are so glam DUP glamorous outside of Instagram. They are miserable is not getting that human connection. They need. Yeah.

Followed her path, and she got super successful on YouTube. And that's how she made her living but living up to that image. She create on YouTube run hurts depression stone about suicide Jetta take a break for a while. Like a lot of stuff comes with a cost. And to me, it's not worth, you know, the price of admission guide rather not. Yeah. I told my daughter the same thing about having these like social media followings stuff like that. Because she'll get on these people are my friends like twitch dischord where it all these people come watch them. And I'm like, no, these people are not your friends. Yes. They are I interact with them. And they're my friends, and I said look up one time, I think. I think you to shreds, they are not your friends in. That's the thing. I do. I have you know mess. Amazing people who social media, we became friends at honestly, they in certain points. I do a lot of business ventures and along the way they've become more supportive than people on knowing that real life. Well, it's really you have to really as you already know watch social media because I've also seen people where she would follow once say some of the most is pickles things and pretty much online bully people in because they have a following then they're following jumps in and say, the moves ridiculous things that don't even make sense what they're following. We'll go with them because it seems like even adults are looking for someone a follow which is pretty disgusting to me. But I guess that's where we yeah. We'll look at like a calf Kathy Griffin. Calling out those kids from Covington high. If you are had done something like that. Media woulda ripped us apart. But young familiar ones on Twitter. What does she do? I'm not familiar with it. Okay. That was it was in the news. Here recently is those kids from Covington high the one that was wearing the maga- hat, and that tribal elder. Oh you. Yeah. That one Kathy Griffin got on Twitter and was docking him telling him everybody. Find out who he is. And do this and this at she's got millions of followers. Okay. To me, that's inciting violence towards a sixteen year old kid. Yeah. The news screwed up. They got the story all wrong. I'm everybody screwed up on that one. And those that actually came back and said, hey, yeah. We reported this wrong hats off to them. But there's some that are doubling down. They will not change their point of view on it. And she was one of them. She was trying to go. Find him ridicule him. And this did she's he's a sixteen year old kid. I see that every day on fortunately people that if you follow. I hate to even call them influences. But that's the name that they call them nowadays. If you follow someone with a large following in a pull something, and you don't agree with it. And you'd be comment. It could inside this big group that you know, is pretty much attack. You. I've done it. I've I've called people out on their bullshit. And then you can see when they're they're what I call their drones. Come after you. Yeah. I only used to welcome it. But I don't on. I try to stay out the the the way of it. But I used to do that for sport. Are you should just go onto not disagree with them a little purpose? But I would welcome their followers come against because most of them are that intelligent. It's not hard to beat a minute debate net. Spent a lot of the debates stuff. I get into that. I'm I love science. I'm science enthusiast actually nixed. Couple of weeks. I believe I'm having a guest honored. She goes by the farm, babe. She's a use science based farming. And she does a lot of talks on light GMO's why they benefit farms, and they they could actually benefit the world. And but she goes into debunking all this crap that these people come out like anti all those are gonna kill us in these are the same people. There's a vaccine calls at autism or something like that. And I'm like a bad. I get on sometimes argue with some of these idiots. It's like I've done my research. Really? I wanna see your lab. Humane you googled it. If you ask them some proof Ness pretty much the end of the debate. Yeah. Usually end up getting blocked whenever I start calling out there proof as yeah. You basically all you're doing is googling stuff that confirms your bias. I used to when I used to debate a lot which is been a while. Now, you know, I took a blog as I wanted to bait you'd have to block me. I'd definitely want. Yeah. That's it. I mean, you'd want because you got under their skin, you, basically showed them or like how how I tell people sometimes when they blocked me and other people come to hate that person block you like, yeah. You know extra bitch. They don't care. Snake? Who is your been your own newest hard to how hard the state is probably as you probably did a lot of conversations who's been your favorite person, you talk to so for a lot of fair person favorite conversation. I've got several that I would classify because I can't really classify one as a favorite because I enjoy point of us from everybody. I did one recently on suicide prevention with Tracy max failed and she wrote the book escaping the rabbit hole. And it's about bullying, Zayed's, depression and Antea and suicide prevention, and that was a really good show. It was very emotional. And then we then I did another show with a Jennifer Whitaker who she we talked about post traumatic stress, and and the use of psychedelics to help people going through poster Matic stress because we're seeing studies now where these cycles LX psychedelic. Like mushrooms in Iowa and stuff like that are actually helping people with these traumas to get over them. And then we just had I just had a good one last week with with with a young lady that I met a year ago brouhaha, and she was that was a fun interview. Man, we talked about roller derby heavy metal in may fighting and stuff like that. I mean, it's just I I enjoy I can't classify one person as my favorite because I do such a wide variety. 'cause I mean people get on my show, and they think oh, we're gonna maybe listen to comedy showed. No, you're not we might be funny and one show in deadpan series in the next show. This just the way it goes. That's what happens when you talk to real people. Exactly, exactly. I mean, do you have any shows that jump out on Jeff out to you own? Like, you said all all the people. I talked to like is different, you know, level of respect for the conversation in even found out that even some of my close friends that I may talk to on the show are always. And even my mother, I have my mother on edge. I always learn things that I didn't know about them initially because one of the things with made it I've realized now is that even some of our close friends we have these surface conversations or some people are very private. So they might not, you know, let you win to a certain advocate a life. We might not ask the right question. When I get them, you know on a podcast. No, we're having this conversation for however, long last questions come up with one of my favorite conversations. I have had a conversation with. A guy called free the rail. I haven't even posted it yet. I just got done editing, but he did nineteen years in prison did eleven those years in solitary confinement, and he talks about his life. How he's basically he was on his own pretty much since like seven years old in it. It was a tough conversation in really, you know, issue mind rolling on how some people are really over sponsor for won't actions. But some people that dealt of rail bad hand at it's hard to recover from. And he talks about how. Now, you know. He's out in front. Not be a positive citizen. And you know, now that he's done all you know, is hard when you go to apply for a job like where have you been telling you been in prison for nineteen years. So that was interesting conversation. One of my heart is conversations I had with my two oldest kids. I went to me, and my ex wife, you know, obviously being ex wife got divorced winter will, you know, a very difficult period. Is the only way I can describe it Noah kids got affected by then we went to pretty nasty custody battle for our son in me, and my two oldest had never talked
