How to Prep Podcast Interviews and Maximize Your Titles

"Dumbest question ever so. Yeah they don't answer it like any. It's always this is the greatest deal it's like thinking you know what we're going to have for dinner. The one thing. I started with my interviews. I just had one today where somebody contacted me and of course. Let me introduce you to you. Know bruce smith whatever just making up the name Bruce's cured cancer. He invented sliced bread and probably has the cure for covid in his back pocket. But none of that ties to how like none of that is really what my audience wants to hear. And if they if somebody comes across That like one was about Being more productive. And i was like well. That's not really but maybe in january when we're all with our mike how to be more productive and get organized with your podcast. That might be a subject. So i emailed them. I said would you be interested in doing a a quick pre interview like ten fifteen minutes just to see we're going to connect and and just even if we do a pre interview because i've never met you. I reserve the right to not publish are episode. And if you're cool with that i'd be happy to interview you. And that way in the event somebody just doesn't click or whatever. It's like why i told you. I reserve the right not to publish it. Because i picture myself as a goalie and my audience is behind me and everybody and their brother is trying to hand. You know get there they want to like. Hey that guy's got an audience. Let's get in front of it. And i'm like you know not that i I'm i guess. I am kind of super picky. If it's if it doesn't make me excited to hear about it it's not gonna excite my audience and it only takes a few episodes boring than before they go. I'm tired dave. What's next and then they start searching because whatever one point six million podcast shoes from so on their probably subscribed twenty and so two or three in a row or boring now. They just start ignoring the next when it comes through. You know you flip through there and it shows you. And i and i've i've i've been saying you know. Listen i've been reengaging with the book. Atlas shrugged on listening for the second time will the books you know. Eighty four hours long. We'll so it is. I think it's i think four eighty four hours. It's like a thousand twelve hundred pages and yeah well. I haven't listened to a podcast in forty days. Because i'm close to finishing in so when i go there it shows me in all my new episodes. Let's see the last episode that it last time it downloaded or okay so it was the last time. So we're recording us on november twentieth. The last episode. Where actually have things. Through september twenty third. That's how long it's been since. I refer so when i click on and i'm not going to do it. Now when i click on down to refresh you know my podcasts. I will have three hundred. Four hundred podcast to choose from. People will never make the cut again. I will never listen to their episode again. Because their last one or two that i listened to were were not really like i don't know i just didn't get anything out of some would be looking for the ones where it's like. I can look at that title. And i can look at that person go. That's the one. I want to listen to because i've got limited you know i've got three hundred. I can choose from. But i can only listen to about fifteen which fifteen are going to make the cut. It's probably gonna be like now four or five people and now those are the only four or five. Podcast i listen to until the new episode of hardcore history comes out and then i have to listen to that one and you said the magic word. I'm gonna look at that title. I always tell people. I see people absolutely just like their titles on fire. Because like 'cause if you think about it when you start up a tv something starts playing when you start the radio something starts playing you. Fire a podcast app. Nothing's going on. And when i see that it's you know the bruce smith show episode twenty-seven that does not make me want to click on that. But if it's like you know how to get more done save time earn money whatever it is if it's something how i'm gonna benefit or something that makes me go. Wait what's that. And i see. People waste that all the time. They'll put the they'll spell out the word episode episode twenty seven and i'm like and then it's like episode twenty. It's bruce michaud episode twenty-seven interview with plo. And you go. What's who was. Always paul mccartney but that's

"And kinda interested in talking about the person joshua. He's the title character of this book and he himself from my understanding of scholarly work on biblical criticism or otherwise. He himself has a story like an origin story. That some people think is kind of a retrospection where like after the fact. He's put into the torah in a way that he may not have always been there. And what i'm referring to is specifically. His glory story is that he's one of the two folks in the twelve spies story that goes into the promised land and says This is great all the other ten folks. All land is terrible. Joshua caleb are on the good side that god likes and because it's the land that they're supposed to go to am. I right in my understanding of that. How scholars look at that person joshua and to what extent to we learn more about him in talking about the book that's named after him. Joshua indeed has a book named after him but is one of the flatter hand more hollow biblical characters. I mean for readers. Go in sequence so you know redo romney in which moses in vary tragic psychological terms wrestles with his impending death. And you know even with the existential reality of death itself. so we're going through it moses psyche and when we can turn out of the penza out of the five books of moses when we opened the book of joshua we have an entirely flat character. You know joshua is really characterized by his obedience and interestingly enough has no title right once called the servant of god is not labeled a profit is not labeled a judge is not labeled a king. I mean we get the news of general because he leads these battles but he doesn't even have a title biblical literature does have great literature and just have complex characters. Josh was not one of them. And you can't really do. A lot of psychological depth with an icon in joshua right becomes an icon of this army of this ancient near right to really kind of like a strobe of what i would call. Ancient national is now. I believe that the book of joshua is ultimately synthesized by a group of editors that we call the or novelists they are the ones that are also very smart editors so joshua ends up becoming a kind of a tool that the nommik editors really use to kinda. We've eras together and also to contain a kind of perfect model right. They wanna leader in their language. Who neither the left nor the right right who keeps torah. You know kind of the cuff at all times. And so they give joshua authority by putting him back the times of most read someone who experienced the whole exodus and even while being a member of this desert generation right the generation of the liberated slaves joshua and his spy buddy caleb right are portrayed is the only two who believe in going to war in this land. So i think that's right. I think the shooter anonymous create joshua to be an icon of the kind of unity to which they aspire and one more piece that all add to your question about joshua and caleb who again are depicted is these faithful spies who go against the will of their generation. I love it kinda that the liberated slaves don't want to go to war. I feel like we haven't done enough to really like reclaim that biblical antiwar position expressed by that generation. But you know. John lewis show like i said he's a. He's a tutoring nommik creation. But there's a lot of northern stuff going on with joshua and caleb is a southern figure just as these editors could really say we've always been at war with canaanites. Their system could also absorb later alliances. So kayla who. This southern figure is a canoe. He's a kennedy and the candidates are ultimately a group that gets absorbed under the tribe of judah the twelve tribes structure is very good at pointing to those people who are on the outside who jumped. Don't join the alliance and saying those e mites those canaanites those jebusites there are enemies. But it's also good at absorbing groups that might join the alliance at their own pace and saying. Oh well that's caleb. He's the head of the kennedy clan and that's a sub family of judah so so both things are possible for trying to account for political alliances. Can we situated some of what you're talking about in some sense of historical time to understand sort of when the actual events that are being responded to her happening versus the time where the story is set. What's going on geopolitically. And the time of the israelites when they are making all these alliances. And then if i understand the approximate timeframe here they're basically writing and rewriting these stories that are functionally taking place around five hundred years earlier. Right i mean the so. It almost becomes like their writing and rewriting and massaging this almost like mythic prehistory. It's not just like they're telling a story from fifty years ago differently. They're telling a story from five hundred years ago differently. I'm just curious if you could give us some sense of what was actually going on in in their world at that time that was motivating them to do all this so yes. Speaking about time wine this is the kind of thing. Bible scholars go to conferences to fight of out. So let me kind of breakdown this picture together with a time line let me start somewhere with is a very important piece of poetry and it's important because because of how it serves as a historical in and that's song of deborah and the song of jabra with we believe based on its grammar and syntax is one of the oldest texts in the bible and some people even speak about the year twelve hundred bc. Jabra sings about a war and she sings that some tribes came and fought in the war in some sat home so she disparages the tribes who sat home and she sings the praises of the tribes who k. That's very important to me because it shows that the success or failure of a given tribe in war depended upon their allies. Were so we see major major motivation for these processes of consolidation. Many scholars have shown how end the nine eight century. B c e you've got these policies of consolidating clans in schreiber's into something that looks like a pro donation. This is happening in the region. And it's about war you know. Because if you're national formation right if or if you're a bunch of tribes and you've got a consolidated federation of people's you're gonna lose but then we get you know eighth century b. c. e. the rise of empires in particular syria and the threat of assyria marching. You know or the egyptian empire has its second wind around this time. It's that process. That i think gets people thinking we've got come up. You know with a larger scale organization in army. And so josh. Shaw gives this army which is kind of being configured in real time it gives this army kind of heroic prehistory behind which people can march. And so it means you know that it works and doesn't work because the syrian army takes out the northern kingdom the kingdom of israel in seven twenty two but ends up sparing the kingdom of

Budgeting Expenses While Living on The Road with Renewable Energy Worker Clayton

"Clayton. Welcome to the bigger targets. Many podcast. i'm so excited to have you today. Thanks guys. I'm really excited to be here. Appreciate all your advice. Throughout allentown cast stones awesome. Well thanks for listening. So clayton is a twenty six year old renewable energy worker living in the midwest and looking for some suggestions on financial planning in general so that he can retire early and lead his best life clinton. Why don't you walk us through your income and debts absolutely so right now. Actually our income just got cut by about forty percent girlfriend. Travels with me for work and she. Unbeknownst us lost her physician so lost forty percent of our income. I'm sitting at a salary for diem and a trailer allowance and then some rental income from a rental property that we have totalling about seven grand a month. Can you give us some background on that. So you say salary per diem and camper each just give us enough background in your job to understand why you have predicament camper allowance. Sure yes so. With the renewable energy side. We travel all over the country so ben everywhere from north dakota colorado oregon iowa and now down in texas so pretty gives me some money in basically not sleeping my own bed. Money right and then Trailer allowance. i live in a fifth wheel while on the road so kind of a unique living situation and they give me allowance for that too. Because there's obviously expenses that come with pulling a trailer and the wear and tear on the tyres and all that kind of thing so companies generous enough to give us allowances for those kind of things and yeah ok. Great eddie other sources of income besides the salary camper allowance pretty yup so we do have a rental property. that were satirized. Well we are at home so kind of one of those ideals to were living on the road but we have a home base and house hacking that home base. So that's bringing in about fifteen hundred a month for us right now and it's gonna go up hopefully the next month or two. Once we finished some slight remodels and get another room rented so it should go up to about two thousand dollars fantastic. Yeah expense side of things fixed expenses. Obviously we got the mortgage. We do have a car loan and then luckily enough again with the company. I worked for their great and they cover a lot of expenses on the road so the living allowance. The lot rent recover my lower end from camper all that kind of stuff. So it's pretty limited to mainly just jim internet's phone bills and then food things like that. So the picture informant. My head is a really strong financial position. We talked about a seven thousand dollars in income. Let's exclude the house act. We got about fifty five hundred dollars a month in income and are you kind of abbreviating that to after tax dollars. Yes yeah that's all after tax. Okay great so you got about fifty five hundred and after tax dollars plus we got income from your house hack how much is your mortgage mortgage is about twelve hundred dollars a month principal interests. I thank is around seven fifty. Our insurance is actually a little bit higher because the house situation is kind of odd. An taxes are actually relatively low about thirteen hundred a year. So awesome so even with maintenance. You're probably sitting at no more than fifteen hundred dollars. Total housing costs. What are your utilities. You think as hard to us for now just because we do live on the road and it's relatively low because we're one twice a month so i don't know maybe hundred dollars okay. So you're housing is free for all intents and purposes through the house hack. Is that right correct. Yep awesome love it. How about transportation is that also largely free because of the allowance for the camper and that type of stuff. That's another benefit as Transportation's pretty much free. I gotta company truck and again the company. I work for their so generous to let me use that personal time to you which is awesome. We do have a vehicle for my girlfriend and we do have a debt on that as well and believer sitting at eighty five hundred or so see if a balance of eighty five hundred on that in cash payment associated with it okay. What would you kind of estimate your total expenses to be housing. We've got to close zero. What would you say outside of housing. Your monthly expenses are unrelated to work man. I'd say twenty five hundred ish maybe a month and that's going to be broken out between that car payment in a gym and entertainment this types of things normal year when it's not twenty twenty. We tended to spend a little bit more than now. It's a little bit less but yeah okay great. So what i'm seeing. Here is an ability to accumulate at least fifteen hundred to two thousand dollars a month in cash flow on an ongoing basis. Is that right yes awesome and then when you look at your financial position do you feel that. The opportunities are going to be on the income side on the expense side or on the capital allocations piece in terms of managing the money. You're accumulating i say right now are sitting pretty good as far as the income. I feel pretty solid with the income side of things granted like i said we did lose some of that coming in but i believe there is work to do on our expense side of things. 'cause i don't accurately track it. Everything i do is rough estimates. So i know what my phone is monthly. I know what the car payment is monthly but the food and all that stuff who knows i mean sometimes we go out and have fun and go out to local italian restaurant or whatever it is so perfect so i think we're gonna have a phone with this because your expense the way you've just described your situation. We don't housing expense. And i see a path forward here. Where if for example if your path that over the next year to you don't have to pay for housing and you don't have to pay for vehicle at least in the short run. I mean you get to that point and you have a thousand dollars per month is what i understand per diem. Is that right. Roughly a thirty six days. So depending on when i'm work that worked when i'm at home so about thousand

You see diana receive their. She's been covering the chiefs all week long diana. They didn't address this. Kobe news because it came up right at the end of media day. But you were talking to all of them throughout so tell us what you learned. Yeah well. I gotta give a lot of credit to this. Kansas city chiefs team who are in kansas city missouri. Twelve hundred miles away from where the super bowl action is all going down starting today and these guys were having a lot of fun they were bringing the energy this virtual so it's very hard to have a lot of energy and to have fun but they did a really good job laura. Let's start with the most important thing i learned. And that's andy. Reid is going to have a double cheeseburger waiting for him at the end of the game. If they win if you remember he had one last year. That was the meal he ate after. They want kidding. That's not the most important thing but something that did stand out with. Patrick mahomes was talking about. When tom brady met up with him after the afc championship game. Two years ago remember the chiefs lost at arrowhead and our jeff jolly was actually down on the ground and he was the one who spotted this. He saw tom. Brady walk over to a security guard and asked to talk to. Patrick mahomes the security guard. A little surprise like okay. I'll figure it out for you. Well he was able to find him a little room in the equipment room. And that's when they brought patrick in radiant ham had a conversation. Take a listen to what patrick learned about it for me. I think it was important because it showed that. I was doing things the right way as a young quarterback in this leading You you gotta go in he or early trying to put it in the time and the work But you don't really know until you get to that that that spot of where you wanna be at Losing an afc championship game. Obviously i didn't get to the super bowl. But then him tell me anything kind of just just saying that he respected what i was doing and how i was planning filming the type of person that i was A kind of best on me to go any new better In order to get the super bowl which we did last year. And i'll just trying to keep improving and keep getting better every single day. We asked andy read about it. He said he didn't enter. Didn't see the conversation. But he said he heard about and he was obviously very grateful. That brady took that time to talk to his young quarterback but re did make a point With the reporters today to say that they are so happy.

Five ways to promote a brand new podcast

"In today's episode you'll learn how to promote a brand new podcast welcome to the podcast and q. And learned the best tips and strategies to launch. Grow and monetize your show. This week's question comes from jack. This is jack dying. The creator of the reading with jack and i have a question. How can promote my brand new podcast. Thank you and have a good day. Thank you so much for your question jack. When you first launch podcast promotion is just as important as recording and releasing that content so on this episode. We're going to discuss five strategies for promoting a brand new podcast strategy number one. You want to make sure that your findable being findable means that you've submitted your podcast. A podcast directories apple podcasts. Spotify google podcasts. Amazon music or some of the major players in the podcast listening game. Right now sitting podcast directories is key because people listened across all different types of apps so if fifty percent of your audience has an iphone which means listening on apple podcasts. And you've only submitted your podcast to apple podcasts. The other fifty percent of your audience that listens on a bunch of different apps as being left out to dry. They can't find you even if they want to entrust me they really want to strategy number two may trailer trailer. Episodes are really really helpful. Because before you launch into a full-blown episode you can have a trailer available for listeners. Potential listeners to check out the podcast and get a small feel for what it's going to be about two is also really helpful. Because with podcast directories you need at least one live episode to submit to them. When you have a trailer in place you can submit that trailer. Podcasts available across all listening apps and it's available once you launch into a full blown episode. If you want to learn more about creating podcast trailers check out the link below. Its previous podcast. Qna episode that we did about creating a great podcast trailer strategy number three. Ask your listener to rate review and subscribe to your podcast subscribing to. The podcast is really important because that means that the listener automatically get new episodes that you release therefore folding them into your audience ratings reviews are really important because they act as social proof. So if i'm checking on new podcast. I'm going to look at the ratings reviews to see what people are saying about it. What are they like about it. What do they not like about it. And if you've got good ratings and good reviews. People are more likely to download an episode. And listen so places where you can ask for. These ratings and reviews would be apple podcasts and pod chaser strategy number four you really wanna leverage your social media presence this is really important because if you launched a new podcast But you're not sharing about on social media only the people that have already subscribed to your podcast that you've put out a new episode which may not be a lot of people as you're starting out but if you're connected to five hundred people on facebook and then another twelve hundred people on instagram. Those are potential listeners. So you wanna share your podcast the link to it and audio graham tweet some piece of the podcast in your content on your social media platforms. The people that are connected to can no. This is a new podcast. I want to check it out. What was that quote. That was really. Let me go. Listen to the whole episode. These are potential listeners that you're connected to and so leveraging your social media presence and platform is a really good way to promote a new podcast strategy number five. Ask your podcast guests to share their episode. So if you are a podcast that has guests on. You can ask that. Guess to share this episode with their listeners their followers or their fan base likewise if you are guests on someone's podcast you can simply ask the host if you can drop the name of your podcasts. Or if they could link your podcast in the show notes or descriptions this is key because it gives you access to a group of potential listeners that you may not have come across or connected with just yet and thereby you get to grow your audience. Thank you so much for sending us your question

The Psychology of Gaming with Jane McGonigal

"And super better and what is it about video. Alex people have an aversion to video games. But there's so many useful tools and insights and lessons that we can draw from them. People who don't play games have two games that you'd out. I mean there are two point three billion people on the planet now who regularly play video games like one in three people have actively chosen to make games a part of our lives which is really exciting moments now. You don't even know. I i would. I bet she might be. I mean she might be doing something on her phone like a little cat collecting game or something. I talked to so many people who swear they'd never played a video game and they are on level twelve hundred of candy crush saga all the time. So what is it about games. Look i mean my god. We could have like a twelve hour. Podcast series at least on this but The the most important thing is this. This is my life researching. The potential benefits of games played by the right person at the right time for the right reason and the number one thing we know any game that you love i don't care if it's the legends. It's fortnight is candy crush whatever. Whatever you feel drawn to We know that there is a transferrable benefit. Which is you get better at learning new things at dealing with systems that are frustrating and having to adapt. you know. you're learning new rules. You're winning new interfaces. It's designed to frustrate you and you have to adapt and get better and build confidence in your ability to get better and every game does this. And it's it's something that we shouldn't trivialize. We shouldn't pretend that that games are just escapist or just a pastime that they actually build you know this kind of growth mindset. They build this resilient way of dealing with challenges and they especially for young people for kids who grow up learning game after game five year old twin daughters who just got their first tablet this year and they've already taught themselves to play over a hundred different games on this tablet and every day they come show me like mom. Look at this game. I learned. Watch me play this game and just the confidence that you can build in. I can learn anything. I can teach myself. I can get better. I can develop new skills. Even if i'm terrible at this the first time i tried it That's something your whole life until you're like a hundred years old desperately trying to keep that neural plasticity going. How do i keep my. You know. Brain healthy and active. Where's the gray matter gonna grow. You can grow it by learning something new. That's hard for you so from five years old to one hundred years old any game that's designed to be challenging is going to give you that benefit. So how should parents think about that with kids. Because there's a lot of questions around screen time. And whether i should let my kids play certain games or not. How do you think about that okay. So the number one thing is you have to be in conversation with your kids around what they're playing and they're three really powerful questions that i ask my kids and anybody. I'm trying to get to know better. Understand the relationship to games and understand their personal strike so you ask them about whatever. The favorite game is right now. What does it take to be good at this game. What skills does it require. What kind of personality or temperament require you ask them. What have you gotten better at since you started playing this game and you ask. What's the hardest thing you've accomplished in this game and asked them to tell you about how they did it you know. What did you have to do in order to meet that challenge because it turns out that people who can talk about what they've gotten better at. What real skills. Whether it's you know being able to manage my breathing under pressure my heart rate under pressure there competitive e sports player or if it's creativity. Maybe i don't give up when things are hard. It's communication stressful situations of my teammates. It's i can get. I know where to look. Whenever i i don't know what to do. I really good information. Finder whatever it is people who can talk about that. They tend to bring those skills to their work to their learning to their relationships to their hobbies And all you have to do to get somebody to transfer the benefits of games to real life is just have that conversation and you can do it with yourself to like just have a little game journal every time you play new game. You're like what am i getting. Better epic playing this game. It's the hardest thing that i have achieved by one. Been playing this game. And what did it take to do it And so if you're having this conversation with your kids. I don't care what they're playing. I don't care if you're playing fortnight twenty hours a week in that stresses you out on by the way twenty hours a week is like the tipping point where we do start to see. It can get in the way of physical health your mental health. So you know

Let's start with the twenty one versus the iphone twelve the standard models. They're very similar. Screen sizes the same overall size. Weight of the phone is the same. Here's where they kinda stick out a little bit. The twenty one offers more storage at starting line so you get one hundred twenty eight gig versus sixty four gig at the start for an iphone twelve. The other thing is interesting to the twenty. One offers three cameras on the back of the phone basically meaning telephoto lens which is typically included on models of the iphone. Twelve pro are available here The iphone twelve has just two lenses on the back of its phone. So you're looking at four cameras. Total one front three in the back on s twenty one for his three total cameras one front two in the back for the iphone twelve also pricing pretty much. Exactly the same. So essentially within twenty. One you're getting an extra camera and more sword right out of the gate. The s twenty one plus versus the iphone pro with the iphone twelve pro again. You get a third camera on the back but telephoto lens. But what's interesting is the twenty one plus gives you a larger screen so instead of the six point one inch screen that you would have on the iphone twelve pro you end up with a six point seven inch screen on the twenty one plus so that's interesting to And again both. Those phones are pretty much on par price-wise prices the same. The size of the phone is really the difference here in terms of the screen. The starting storage is the same one hundred. Twenty eight gig but really. It's about that screen size. You get a lot more screen for your buck with that samsung phone now. Let's get to the granddaddies here. The ultra for the pro. Max with the ultra. You get six point eight inch screen so really not that big a leap compared to the plus the iphone twelve pro. Max is where you see a bigger leap and screen size from the pro. Six point seven inches When you're looking at the key features the pro. Max camera system has some smaller upgrades to get better. Zoom for example. I'm higher aperture as well. The twenty one. Ultra has an astonishing cameras on the back of the phone. So you get a second telephoto lens. That's interesting to price price-wise also it's about one hundred dollars more for the s twenty ultra versus the iphone. Twelve pro max. Here's another wrinkle to this though you have a fourth iphone. Twelve model the iphone twelve mini which is essentially the iphone twelve. Just in a much smaller size. In fact i just upgraded to an iphone twelve mini coming from an iphone seven and it's actually smaller than the iphone seven but it has a bigger screen and it's a nice phone and i think for folks that maybe are just tired of the bigger smartphone screens. It's a good alternative

How those $600 checks are being spent

"We turn now to the gains to be had from those six hundred dollar relief checks. That started going out a couple of weeks ago and when we might expect to start seeing them show up in this economy. Marketplace's merrill cigars been talking to some people about how they are spending or not spending that money. When austin flannery in greenville south carolina got his six hundred dollar check he decided to splurge i on a barbecue dinner with his girlfriend. Brisket beans potato salad iced tea. But meals like seventy bucks then on some clothes like a fifty dollar pair of pants. Then he saw painting at a local store of some french actor from the eighteen hundreds. Who's all dressed up and smoking. A pipe bought that too. And then i went home and i was like man. He needs to be tattooed on me. He looked so elegant. So i got a tattoo of them on his forearm. Another four hundred bucks. When flannery got the first check. In this spring. He used it to pay off medical bills but he had just lost his job. An insurance company since then. He's gotten a new job luckily enough. I'm gonna financial place right now. Where i could afford to have a little bit of fun so i did. One reason. the government is sending out. Checks is so that people like flannery will spend money another is economic relief. I heard from people. Today who used the money to pay for necessities like rent heating oil in san diego catherine alinsky. Her husband got twelve hundred dollars. Some of that went toward just still trying to survive specifically gas and electric. They saved the rest alinsky. A hairstylist and her salon is currently shutdown. Honestly who knows what twenty twenty one is gonna look like for work for me and we always just want to be more prepared than less. A lot of people are using the money to set themselves up financially. Like hector enrico in chicago. Me and my fiancee. We plan to buy a house soon. So definitely trying to pay off debt to No build a credit get a better interest rate on the mortgage and he's using some of the money to buy raffle prizes for his students.

One Page At A Time, Jess Wade Is Changing Wikipedia

"So today. We're speaking with just weighed in experimental. Physicists at college. London and every night for the past three years just has written a wikipedia entry about a woman or poc scientists. And if this sounds like a big commitment that's because it is. But what motivates. Just keep with. It is the possibility of using wikipedia to combat the bias. In science. We see it in who gets through peer review. We see it in who gets big papers. Cited we see who gets big grants. We see it and who wins awards. And that means that the people that we celebrate and champion incredibly homogeneous and when wikipedia launched the internet was a very small space and it was very dominated by particular types of people. This kind of you know. Tech bro attitude that we still see in silicon valley and places like that majority white majority western a lot from north america some from western europe and those were the first people to start using it engaging in contributing to wikipedia backed according to a twenty twenty study. Eighty seven percents of wikipedia. Contributors are men with media includes wikipedia wick wicky quote a bunch of other platforms and for just this bias in. Authorship creates a bias in who gets a biography so this huge systematic bias against women against people of color against people from the global south against people who are from any kind of particular marginalized group. So it's kind of two things when we have a very diverse editorship and to the things they writes about a not very diverse and this is obviously impacted by the way that science celebrates people and who took about who we define as notable. Right right just to confirm by. Now you've written what nine hundred articles for the site. Oh no no. How many i've written i've written one thousand two hundred one thousand two hundred whatever so sub usually get a bit excited so obviously that's not three hundred sixty five times three so sometimes i get a little carried away but in general i try and stick to one a day sometimes. Yeah yeah. I mean. I've been going for three. Yes so i've done a pretty good job that in those i. We thought a lot about how to ask you this question. Because twelve hundred articles is an extraordinary accomplishment as far as contributing to this encyclopedia. And so the question we're going to go with is if you could build a quarantine bubble with some of the people that you've written about living or deceased who would you include and why should question so so for sure. I'd have to have some of the people developing vaccines enough air. The person who created the oxford vaccine which is is the vaccine this just been approved for use in the uk. A viral vector vaccine is a phenomenal professor. Sara gilbert sara gilbert has had this kind of fascinating rich directory working on the development of a whole bunch of different vaccines that can walk in different corona viruses and kiss kubat. I don't know if you've come across any of your reporting. She's she's a young african american women who is at the national institute of health and had walked back scenes for for sars and mers. So has this really great legacy but also alongside. I kind of scientific research. An extraordinary publication list works to support people from undeserved communities and walks to really amplify the voices of scientists who too often overlooked but also to support young people and getting into an ethic about science. So that people at different ends of that curric- his kizzie is still very young. Where saratoga established professor but both of them have this kind of extraordinary pathway to really ultimately creating the thing. That's going to save the entire world so suddenly. If i if i had according to about they would be in it. I think that. I mean how many people might out in my quarantine babo because i could keep going. There's no official guidance but the often cited wisdom is less than ten. I'm so primed and ready to tell you stories about everyone. I'm so excited about them. So mainly because i have been. She's someone who i wrote about right at the beginning of my wikipedia. A mathematician who gladys west. She was born in virginia in the thousand nine hundred and she went to college. She went to a historically black college and university to study maths. She goes off in becomes the teach She then eventually what the us government. Wes she did the early computations and calculations for gps so for all of the technologies that almost everything that we do day to day relies on. Now you know you get in your car keys your phone. You try and navigate took particular location. You use the technology that gladys west created. And when i made gladys west page in two thousand eighteen is really hard to find. Information about. Her book is what for the us government so lots of things are adopted. A couple of months. After i put the page live so after i'd finished writing it and put it onto wikipedia. She was selected by the bbc is one of the top one hundred women so she went into the kind of top one hundred women in the world for any intentional creation. Contribution ebba and when you're on a web page like fat when you're on a page so much traffic and insight people hop over to the wikipedia page really quickly so you could just see the numbers of page views of of the wikipedia. Page going up and up and that meant that more and more people contributed to it so grew story grew. How did that make you feel. I just loved it. I was reflecting on this a lot with with my parents lockdown wife. I kept going live. I kept doing this. And i find nothing more rewarding honestly than seeing other people get recognized then champion for what they've done so absolutely love to have quarantine bubble that so many things that i want us. Yeah and you're collecting. I suppose historical information across different websites and books to write these biographies. Has it ever feel like time travel. Yeah completely does feel like time travel. It's it's so it's so interesting. The things that i find kind of thrilling and exciting now feels such a kind of privilege in a rush to be able to get access to all of the resources that we can do. Now you know online libraries. Nine archives sites archived magazines scientific journals extraordinary places that that turn to for this and there are times when you just feel like fantastic achievement. So so if you see in a lot of the world's when women get married they take their partner's name so sometimes it's quite difficult to find out things about their lives if they got married and all of their publications in this new name. And when you find that one link that one connection that tells you that maiden name and then you can go back and find their phd thesis or who was there examining all this extra level of information. So when i get to that. I'm like jump off the sofer like this is great and say yeah. It's completely like a portal into another world. Right i mean. I've chills just listening to you. Talk about this kind of forensic reconstruction of people's lives and who they were outside of who. They married or other kinds of societal markers of that. Yeah a big part of it. I think a big part of my efforts wikipedia. Who i've met the people that we've trained editor phones is to not just make pages about women no make pages about people of color but to make them as good as the comparable page would-be about a white man. Yeah yeah you've been amazing way of connecting all these dots. I really appreciate hearing that I wanna ask you one one last thing. Which is i know that in a lot of ways just talking to you. It sounds like this project is part of such a bigger desire to see science really include nbc driven by all kinds of people. And what do you think it will really take to bring more women and poc's into science so that they stay. Oh such a good question and such a huge one. I mean they're very preliminary simple things that low hanging fruit. If you will know why we don't already have in place you know proper care and support for people who have caring responsibilities so whether that's you know elderly parents or sick parents or especially now in the pandemic who seeing the importance of the childcare and how that skin influence women scientific careers if they're having to work from home but i think more than that we need to really look a scientific institutions and ask really critical questions about why people are leaving. Why do we see. So few black professes. Why do we see so few women in position of leadership. Why do lgbt he. Plus scientists not feel comfortable being out when they're in the scientific workplace and then really put money to and take action to address those individual needs. But i think from a kind of how you get more diverse people into science. I really honestly think the answer is improving our education systems and really support our teachers better. Pay them as well as we pay are bankers so that they stay and so that they create kind of inspiring science lessons. Then go out and got this next generation to come in who keep pushing for this change that we want

Kohl's CEO Explains Company's Relationship With Amazon

"Us about the relationship with Amazon now and are they a friend or a friend of me or how does that whole relationship work? Yeah, I would I would definitely put them in the friend category page, you know, when you meet created this relationship a few years ago and started testing and I can describe that in a moment. It definitely got a few questions like wait a minute aren't you competing with Amazon course, I would say there's plenty of market share to be had right there's billions of dollars in the kinds of products we sell but a few years ago. I mean we're looking at the incredible company they were building them tell when they had and we have assets they have and they have assets we don't have I mean we look at our you know, we get the store base. I keep talking about right healthy robust and you know another way to our earlier discussion the future of brick-and-mortar. It's not just about transacting and buying products as I mentioned. We're using them to fulfill Goods. So they're omni-channel fulfillment center as well. And so we've really dead. Challenge ourselves to think creatively about all the ways that a this this physical space can be used and serve our families. So, you know a few years ago we connected with a guy has on and talked about, you know, lots of ideas actually on how we could bring our complementary strengths. We've got this incredible store base and this consumer base. They have this tremendous reach and loyalty offer. Is there a win-win in here in can we think differently and build on each other's strengths. And so we started testing this idea where at the core of it. We accept Amazon returns and one of the insights we have about our customers. Andy is that and we knew this from our own experience customers hate dealing with returns packaging up finding the packing slip going dealing with it and we have already seen that 90% of our returns happen in the store. So how could we extend that and have that really be a skill of the company that we can leverage into other spaces and Amazon didn't have the convenience of these twelve hundred years. Is that we offer so the service and a nutshell is we take Amazon returns and we make it really easy for the customer. We have a dedicated space. It takes literally seconds to process the return the big Advantage free and the customer doesn't have to pack it to that. So literally they can just walk in with Whatever item that maybe they change their mind on and bring it to Kohl's and they're you know, they're done and what we get is we get our new traffic and importantly building a relationship with some new customers and what we're finding is we are getting new customers and we're seeing a younger customer and those are both very strategically important to us,

For-profit online schools are getting a second look from parents

"This week. We're taking a look back at some of our shows from twenty twenty that deal with issues that continue to be shall we say challenging that includes education and the complexities of dealing with remote school. Every day as parents try to figure out the best remote schooling options enrollment alternative online schools rose significantly last fall. Some of these are four profit schools. They get public money from states or public school districts for each student they enroll. They've been around for years. Jennifer king rice is a professor of education at the university of maryland who has studied for profit virtual schools. She says you shouldn't assume that having experienced in remote learning means the school is better. The way they they make money is that they have tend to have much higher student teacher ratios and so they have fewer teachers Available and they also. I think the obvious thing. Is they save money on their facilities and you know what it costs to maintain physical school plant. What might a student teacher ratio look like. Well how big our class sizes they can get quite big The the mean of across all virtual schools in a recent study that we did was about forty four students per teacher in a virtual school compared to about sixteen students per teacher In the national average across the board in brick and mortar schools. There is a lot of variation though. So you know. This is not a one-size-fits-all there are some virtual schools who have Student teacher ratios. That are as high as twelve hundred students per teacher. Wow yeah i mean that sounds like college and that's a k through twelve school. Potentially that's a k. Through twelve school so picture. Very large virtual classrooms Where you know a teacher either has a prerecorded.

Cheques, imbalances: Americas fraught stimulus

"America's house of representatives passed another version of stimulus bill yesterday. This one promising. Two thousand dollar checks to the majority of americans use would make a difference in the lives of americans who are facing the greatest uncertainty that they've experienced for many of them in their lifetime. It's unclear if the measure will pass in the senate making it yet another twist in a last minute. Saga to provide economic assistance to millions of struggling american workers and businesses the original two point three trillion dollar spending package included nine hundred billion dollars for pandemic relief in addition to funding the federal government for the next year. They was hastily negotiated in the run-up to christmas by a bipartisan group including president. Trump's treasury secretary steve mnuchin but after it was passed by the house and the senate. Mr trump criticized the bill saying it didn't do enough to help. Ordinary americans in really is a disgrace for example among the more than five thousand pages in this bill in the end. He didn't make good on his threat to veto the legislation on sunday but he demanded another congressional vote on increasing the value of the stimulus checks. A measure supported by many more democrats than republicans. I worry that this wapping four. Hundred and sixty. Three billion dollars won't do what's needed stimulate the economy or get the jobless back to work. Whatever the outcome the relief couldn't be more needed. Government has been deadlocked on the matter for months and in just over three weeks. It'll be president. Joe biden who inherited the budget. The stimulus plans and the problems brought about by all the footdragging. Congress rarely compromises these days injuries. Cologne is the economists. Washington correspondent and it was truly a compromise measure. That will do some good I think for the american people. So what's in the bill actually been passed by both houses and signed by president trump. the new sumo's spill that president trump signed into law includes a couple of important provision. One of which is another round of direct checks civil. Go to americans. These are going to be half as big as the ones that were passed in march so these will be six hundred dollars per person as opposed to twelve hundred and there's also going to be a new federal top in unemployment benefits. Most americans have beginning six hundred dollars a week until those benefits expired back in august. The new benefits are going to last for eleven weeks and they will be about three hundred dollars per week. And there's a few other things it's very long. Bill is fifty six hundred pages. Almost that was negotiated very much at the last minute. Among the more important parts are another three hundred billion or so which are going to be allocated for the payment protection program which subsidizes businesses to make sure that they don't have fire people and why the president trump had Such a hard time signing why the delay. That's an interesting question. Depends on how generous he wanted to the president. Many people pointed out the seeming lack of logic about refusing to sign a bill that had been negotiated with his administration. Nancy pelosi of negotiating with steve mnuchin. The treasury secretary about the contours of the bill and this compromise was was forged with mitch. Mcconnell the republican leader in the senate there had been little indication before the bill was actually passed that donald trump had match of objection to it wants. It came to his desk. He thought of the bill was pathetic and that it needed to have much more generous person check but ultimately donald trump decided not to hold up the bill and and this is a relief package that americans have really been waiting some time for. Yeah absolutely the initial cares. Act was a huge injection of stimulus. But it was passed all the way back in march and a lot of the major provisions of the cares act expired back in august and interestingly because that was more than two trillion dollar bill what you saw in the first month of the pandemic was actually pretty solid progress against already in america. You saw a twenty five percent reduction from its pre pandemic levels and what you've seen since the expiration of those benefits is a very fast resurgent so all of those gains in poverty reduction have been Erase this point and if you look at other indicators of hardship whether it's the sheriff families who say that they can't afford food thirteen percent of american families right now are saying that they have not had enough to eat in the last week from the latest census bureau. Polls you see thirty percent of americans who are renting say that they have little to no confidence that they will be able to pay next month's rent and those measures that we've been tracking have gone up significantly in the past couple of months and put this into some context. How does this This relief package on the whole compare with with similar ones offered by other countries britain germany. And so on so at this point america. We'll have done over three trillion dollars of direct stimulus. And if you compare. America to other countries on the basis of how much money does it immediately inject into the economy. America looks fairly outstanding. Where america doesn't look as generous on the stimulus front is on its guarantee. Liabilities made with businesses so european countries are much more likely to guarantee loans use the central bank much more than america has used the fed as part of their strategy for addressing similar. So depending on whether or not you think. Direct relief to americans is more important You could say that america's really well if you think that subsidising businesses and making sure that they stay open is the vital point of covid relief that you could say that the europeans have done better but another facet of this was that the bill apparently contains what president trump called the pork but a lot of provisions that aren't sort of directly related in that way it does and that's in part because it was attached to the bill that keeps the government open in funded for the next year and that obviously has a lot of unrelated provisions because it is the bill that funds entire federal government. You know there are measures on a teddy roosevelt presidential library. Independent commission to oversee horse racing. Racine those kinds of things have been snuck in but also some provisions that might not have been obviously related to covid but that are probably good like an end to the practice of surprise billing which is basically where you go to a hospital. That's in your insurance network. You're treated by dr who is affiliated with a different network and you get a very large bill and all this is happening of course in the in the twilight of mr trump's presidency. Where does this leave. Joe biden as as he starts to come in this really sets the initial conditions for joe biden's presidency a lot of the unemployment benefits for example will expire in mid march which will mean that there will be some period of renegotiation. We saw chuck schumer. Who is the democratic leader in the senate say that the bill will only partially cover some of the depths that americans are in right now economically. Unfortunately the troubles are so deep. The abysses so long that we need more and this is just a first step. This is an emergency. We need a second bill to continue. So that's going to set up a new challenge for them in the opening days of the administration when biden would probably rather try and pursue a big legislative victory like infrastructure. Or something else. A lot of it is gonna turn on what happens in the upcoming senate races in georgia. The runoffs will decide the last two seasons senate and that will determine whether or not democrats or republicans control it if republicans keep those seats and democrats. Don't have control of the senate. I think it's probably quite likely that this is the last big stimulus measure that americans are gonna see addressed. Thank you very much for your time. Thanks so much for having

Interview With Jessica Garcia, SWA First Officer

"What's up walling. Hey bobby how are you. I'm great this is our third guest and we are excited to have her on the show today with us as a pass flight instructor from united flight systems current southwest airlines first officer and someone with a very interesting aviation story that we're gonna talk about today today. We have on the show jessica garcia. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. And i know We're gonna talk a lot about today but you also have to be married to a pilot as well an my wonderful husband. Ricky who also instructed here structure. And i heard good news for ricky recently. Is that true. He got hired at commuter airlines Friday very excited and so he was an express jet in lives in houston listened to show. They probably have heard about all the things that happened. Express jet so it's great to hear that ricky's back in the in the in the cockpit. Doing great things for aviation excited. I'm i'm pumped for him. He's ready to get back in the airplane so we have a lot to talk about today but as the current owner of united flight systems. It's a it's a great time when a previous flight search comes back and shares with me stories and things from the past. You've obviously spent many an hour behind a prop as an airplane owners still today. You spend a lot of time on the probe had any idea. How many hours do will you gave here at this. Oh it's gotta be at least twelve hundred I remember one day sitting down with my logbook in between students. And i recognized that my total dual received in total dual given was equal spicer past that milestone here and then i think i want to say about twelve hundred dollars instructing here nice and that that was that in the day where you could just get the fifteen hundred right to the airline sort of. I was in the weird transition area where the atp was being required by the by the regional airlines to get hired. But it what you didn't have to do the atp p. course so i ended up being able to do my atp on my own without having to the course but you still have to have the fifteen hundred hours so kind of an awkward phase. I think i got my atp in june and the the law passed in august. For the so. I guess for our listeners. We've we've obviously prepped and talked a little bit. Tell us a little bit about your aviation career where he went to college. How you found this place and then did you go right to the airlines are or what will happen there. So i started flying recreationally in abilene texas. Where i'm from Just doing it for fun. I grew up flying with my dad in the right seat of various aircraft wanting bananas barons and the end of my freshman year of college. He said okay. You can go to summer school. You can get a job or you can get your pilot's license and so i opted to go get my pilot's license obviously and had an a wonderful instructor. Who is now one. She is my best friend. We are incredibly close. She flies for fedex and she she said you know. You're kind of good at this. Have you considered doing it as a career and up until that point i hadn't been exposed to the opportunities in careers in aviation so took me to my first women in aviation conference and it was like being around thousands of my taipei. Best friends And they all took me by the hand. I was nineteen years old. And said we're going to show you what it means to be a professional pilot and i decided right then and there that was going to be my career up until then i was studying marketing And liked it but didn't love it so went back to abilene finished my instrument rating then i transferred to louisiana tech university where i finished my commercial. Cfi of mea. I instructed for the school for a few months loved being attack. I'm very proud Louisiana tech bulldog and but it wasn't building flight time quite quick enough and so a friend of mine called me and said there's a flight school in houston. I think you'd be a great fit at work. Consider interviewing so. I called united flight systems. Talk to the previous owner.

"Day newsradio twelve hundred w o eighty i giuliano i can't find the part of the article that i'm looking for right now but i remember reading it it might be the chapter the translated chapter from the serbian air force book which mentioned about this ufo appearing directly in the flight line are the the the flight path of these planes at kinda reminded me of the tic tac case where this tic tac went to the cap point of the dave frazier was supposed to head toward did you get the same impression oh well in this case i say just exactly why that's vodka the airplane was returning back appeared in front but i must say that was giving because the goal was to land okay i misunderstood there is a reference in one of the articles to marshall tito who was the the ruler of yugoslavia at the time was he did he take an interest in this oh yeah the show went general calama which in rather station was there and she was leaving this medication of the airplanes interception alexander shows because that's actually she was preparing reports and the president teach all the time was in the eagle that was a place near velika sometimes he would spend free time there and there was a zone of security around came and the saints cables relatively clone school general calama which would pick up these reports that they would re rights and they would go to president tito and cost yes the president received these reports however we don't know what racks involves and what for the discussions but yeah the president of the country received the ufo reports my mom would that be the kind of thing that marshal tito would have passed along to the russians who were sort of you know they were the top dog in the eastern bloc in those days i i know in one of the articles i read about your work it references colonel bora sock lob who was the he was the the russian ministry defense source that i had contacted i in nineteen ninetythree who was sort of at the in charge of the russian military's on ten year long ufo study and i wonder whether yugoslavians of told the russians about this then possibility won't be learned that yugoslav air force actually had a small committee and actually worked you learned it was led by a colonel venco my storage however he is alive anymore but generally switch from belgrade's the game is a concept number of the story on who knew him and also from widget sources she told me that it seems that this committee should information not only russians but also beat united states because they were sloppy our sorts of like a country between two blocks you know always lock kate's relationship so there was some kind of rumors there but it's hard to confirm because the main participants are not alive unfortunately anymore we've got a couple of folks on the phones that have questions or comments for you let's go to the international line i norman toronto hey norm you're on with juliana hi everyone my question is this i was wondering if your guest sees any difference in the way that events at insincere handled between europe and the us and by extension canada and the uk from official sources my classic example is the phoenix lights where initially governments came out and made fun of it and then later on they came supposedly clean and said it was a serious incident and they're kind of looked upon with favor and kind of looked upon with heroes but from my standpoint that kind of mixed up obscured everything so i was just wondering if you're i guest has any opinion on that thanks very much okay yeah well for children the situation i can say a lot because actually we don't have prominent cases so that's all recorded the recently also we have to take into consideration the size of the country's now republic relatively small size and the frequency of these incidents it seems of course we will never know from defied but nothing leaked so far towards me but i can for sure tell you about the yugoslav you so wendy's incidents were happening dachshund civilian pilots would report them to and journalists swirl interested they would cover design coast i'm noxious day will send the questions air force and you will force would didn't want to confirm the military type of incidents they would say nothing is coming up speaking getting on the radar butts regarding civilian cases at least down in public domain david articles so.

"Is newsradio twelve hundred w a i welcome back luella zondo i wanna ask you a little bit about some of these other cases like tic tac you know you had the nimitz which had these encounters off and on for several days and then you watch that video and you listen to the testimony of of dave favor and and some of the other witnesses and it seems like this tic tac was you know these things just going about their business not really paying attention to us at all and and at some point they kind of oh there's somebody else here and they kind of react as if gosh we we didn't know anybody was paying any attention to us and then they display this incredible technology i is that sort of the sense you got about what was going on there this cat and mouse and is that sort of what happened with the other tic tac encounters have heard there have been a dozen maybe two dozen similar incidents off the east coast i know there are limits on what you can say can you give me a general sense of is that tic tac encounter similar to what other tic tac absolutely there's some there's some there's some congruency here that that are striking some of these haven't been brought to light so i you know i have to be careful i i keep reminding folks i signed a nondisclosure agreement and you know boy i tell you one word in the wrong direction and i could find myself in a whole lot of hot water so i want to be very deliberate what i say and how i say it sure so i think i think there you said these things were playing catandmouse with us it's a lot like maybe walking down the beach and you see a and i don't know what's going into mind of these these phenomena but i can only imagine you're walking down the beach and you see a stray dog at the end of the beach and you don't really pay much attention to it and you're doing your thing and as stray dog starts to get a little closer and closer again you're probably not really worried about it you have dogs at home you love animals but when this stray dog that you don't know and you realize it's a pretty big dog starts to get kind of close to you maybe you start getting a little bit nervous maybe start keeping your on a little bit more maybe take a bit of a defensive posture right just in case so i wouldn't be surprised that as we are flying our our aircraft and our assets near one of the things you get to a point where you cross a certain primitive and all of a sudden now the thing begins to say okay you're a little bit too close for comfort i wanna make sure we maintain a safe distance between you and me and so that may very well be you know keeping that that that degree of of operational distance freedom of movement certainly not uncommon that we would see in in in foreign adversaries aircraft and frankly anything that that we encounter you know you you go to africa and you you you see these tv shows where they're flying helicopters in darting the wildebeest down below when the helicopters far off in the distance man the wildebeest don't really do very much but when that helicopter gets right over them boy they sure run in all directions and that may that may very well be what we're seeing here they're just trying to keep a safe distance from us i had heard that there was something like two dozen tic tac type encounters off the east coast in period of months i know you probably can't get into that and you know in in looking at the records of other countries which i know the bass organization collected information from other countries in russia the russian ministry defense had an order a standing order lead these things alone because in the words of their commander of their air force they could have incredible capacities for retaliation and that's an exact quote i imagine you can't say whether we have a standing order like that but is there any order is there any policy about how to engage with these things well that's that's why i'm doing what i'm doing we need we need policy on it you know silence.
