Bombed, not beaten: Ukraine's capital flips to survival mode
"People across Ukraine are slipping into survival mode as Russia continues its barrage targeting one newly liberated city for particular punishment. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. It's a bomb study.

Razorfirst and Sebastian Discuss the Mechanics of Collecting Ballots
"I have drawn the following conclusions. Tell me if I'm off base or what's missing, raise the 5th. My take is the following. Where we have normal elections, let's say, two weeks of voting, we should do politics. We should campaign on a message, build a platform, get that candidate in front of as many people as possible and have rallies. Everywhere else, like Pennsylvania with 50 days, Virginia with 45 days. I mean, a Republican government, 45 days of voting, it's not about elections anymore, razor fist. It's about the mechanics of collecting ballots, not votes collecting ballots, and we just have to build that machine. And policies, platforms really don't matter because if Pennsylvania can vote for federman, then this isn't about politics. What do you think? Well, and some states come right out with it. They even venerate. I mean, California law venerates the practice, just explicates it is actually legal to ballot harvest. Right. Which makes it makes it a really tough sell in all the states where the Democratic Party is pretend that ballot harvesting does not exist and is a conspiracy theory. California doesn't seem to think so. They actually passed a law passing it. The thing that's hilarious about what you mentioned was Katie Hobbs, of course, the candidate that Carrie Lake was running against. It's bigger than that. People outside of Arizona only know Carrie Lake is the charismatic person that they've caught maybe an advertisement or a speech from. But here in Arizona, she had been a journalist and very, very visible here for over two decades. She was in the biggest markets from north to south for 25 years. She was a phase, right? Absolutely. And what's worse, her opponent was in charge of the election,
El Salvador Proposes Digital Securities Bill
"We're going to talk about El Salvador. Now, amidst everything that's been going on in the last two weeks. I found myself thinking probably about every other day, what's going on in El Salvador. And so I'm happy that today we get to talk about it. So El Salvador's national assembly is considering a draft bill to regulate digital securities, which is an indication that the country will move forward with its plans to issue Bitcoin backed bonds. You'll remember in March, the country put a pause on these Bitcoin back bonds to Bill was presented by the minister of economy, Maria Louisa hayam, breve, and seeks to establish a national digital assets commission to oversee the regulation of digital asset issuers and service providers Wendy, I'm going to kick this one off to you first. What do you think about El Salvador moving ahead with these bonds? I think that it is absolutely amazing. And I don't want to get into the way that he governs his country. But I really do want to focus on how El Salvador is using Bitcoin as a tool to essentially gain their power back. This is why Bitcoin was created. It was created for the people by the people. And yes, even though president buki is this, I guess that he calls himself the CEO of El Salvador or whatever it is is a joke. I think it is important to note that we're seeing a country that got a lot of slack globally, essentially take their power back and tell people until a lot of these organizations, these big global organizations, we don't need you. We don't need your help. We don't want your help. We are fine on our own. And essentially, they're taking their power back and they're creating their own monetary policy and they're creating their own laws and regulations for all of this stuff. So I think it's absolutely amazing. And it just goes to show that we're starting to see a shift in the way a lot of different countries portray themselves and how they're using Bitcoin to essentially help their people in a positive aspect. So again, 100% here for it. I root for the underdogs as always.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Unpacks the Midterms
"Joining us now is one of the smartest people in the country to help us unpack what happened on 11 8. The midterms, almost two weeks ago. It feels like it was two months ago. It's been a long long couple of weeks as we unpack all of this is the great Newt Gingrich, mister speaker, welcome back to the program. It's good to be with you. I'm sure about great. But it's still good to be with you, Charlie. Well, thank you, mister speaker. So obviously we're going to win back the House of Representatives, which is a positive Ron DeSantis one by double digits, and we want to Georgia and Texas, but I know you will agree that it was a little bit underwhelming in certain parts of the country. You look at fetterman, you look at some of these people that are going to be senators, remarkably beatable. What happened and what went wrong? Well, I think first of all, this was a tough thing to say, but I think the Republican policies are, I should say, the principles that the campaign consultants use are just wrong. Let me give you an example. A number of our candidates came out of the primaries virtually broke and for two or three months they weren't spending any money. Meanwhile, the Democrats were identifying and defining our candidates and the number of them never quite recovered. In some cases, and here I think Mitch McConnell was a major problem. He had a huge super PAC, but it believed in spending money late. Well, the problem with that is in a lot of states now, people vote so early that if you aren't shaping the election in August and September, you're really missing the whole first wave of voting. So that was a piece of it. The other problem is that McConnell in particular does not believe in having any kind of serious issues to create an agenda. I really liked what Kevin McCarthy did. I think if he had a mistake, it was not doing more of it, but his commitment to America was real. It's positive. You're going to see it play out in the house. And I think that probably they should have spent more time and money communicating it as we did with the contract back in 94.
Would You Come Out to the Dan Bongino Radio Roadshow?
"Lot of good feedback Jim on me throwing out the roadshow idea Thank you folks I would be really honored if we do it if you decided to show up So we'll try to pick some locations around the country I was thinking would you think of a radio road show for those of you who missed it we did our first road show at the patriot awards Jim and guy was there He helped with the podcast and the radio show as well And Jim was there We were wrangling guests and the show was different We had my father on the show which was totally unexpected I did not plan that I knew he would be there But Joey Jones war hero Fox News contribute how to leave early to go do another interview And I saw my father sitting there and I said dad you want to join the show never really expecting He was going to be a natural And my gosh the feedback we got in that interview where we talking about losing my uncle Gregg and Vietnam and what I was like growing up as a kid The feedback was probably greater than the feedback we got on some of our high profile name interviews So we're seriously thinking about it It would be it'd be a real honor to do shows around the country will probably fly out to some different regions around a bus or something And then pop from location to location Maybe we'll do like two weeks We'll do it when the new book comes out
Carl Jackson: We Have to Adapt to Ballot Harvesting
"I want to address the ballot battle. I want to address the culture battle. And I want to address the free speech battle. And I think the free speech battle. That's where this new special prosecutor comes into play. We all know that this is another witch hunt to do everything they can, the left to destroy former president Donald Trump, but I want you to understand that as Republicans, let me say this. And I want to be emphatically clear. And I really have to, I really have to check my own gut as I know more conservatives were moving this way. And I wanted to make sure that I wasn't being swayed, but I thought it was the right thing to do in order to save this country. Guys, if we're going to save this country, we have to adapt ballot harvesting. I never thought I would have said that. If you would ask me this two weeks ago, I'll be honest with you, just two weeks ago. I wouldn't have said it. Let me share a story with you. And then I'm going to give you some stats and I want to talk about what's happening in Arizona. I want to bring that back to the forefront of your minds because I don't want to let this go and I don't want you to let this go. I am now convinced, as a matter of fact, I did a short podcast on it this morning. Please subscribe to my podcast. Salem podcast network dot com or the Carl Jackson show dot com. I did a quick but jam packed podcast on on this very topic this morning. But I am convinced of this. That if we're going to save America, we're going to have to ballot harvest. I would have never thought I would have said that. Literally, just two weeks ago.
Making Sense of the Election
"I mean, we're coming into the end of the month here of November. And I don't know about you. It's just flying by. It's times the constant election drone that seems like it's gone on since 2020 of November and now is two years. If you're rotting along, you're running, walking, exhausting, whatever you do to listen to the dog college podcast. I want you to just think about that for a second. It's been two years. Since the November 2020, presidential election. And it seems like that it is never ended. I mean, we went through everything after 2020, then we would sort of it's like, jump straight into the midyear cycle, and then with all of the issues with the Biden administration and, you know, frankly, I think a lot of people are glad I know I am. To see this election cycle over, I'm pleased with some of the results. I'm not pleased, of course, being a conservative. I'm not pleased with other results. But I'll also hear in Georgia in which we're three more weeks away from finishing up the election, the 2022 election cycle for good, except for those states who don't know how to count ballots. That's whole different issue. But with the last other election, that's the runoff here in Georgia between Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock. I'll dig into that race just a little bit toward the end of the podcast day. But I wanted to give us a chance. We went over this before. I want to now sort of sit back two weeks after the election. Almost two weeks after the election. And let's just think about what is happening. And I want to, you know, we've talked on this podcast a lot about why things were happening. And we brought this in percentages of how it would work, who would work. And I'll be honest. The last week's projections, they were off. We missed it a little bit. Now, I did give a two 25 to two 35 range. I thought toward the end, if you remember the podcast, we might because polling was looking like we were going to be up higher. On the house side. But two 25, I said, was and I'll use my own words. A bad night. Well, we had, frankly, from the perspective of election margins, it was a bad not for Republicans. It was very good night, and I want to reemphasize this. It's a very good not for Republicans if you take the fact that we did take the house back. Republicans did take the house back, which means that the divided government is back that the just strike shot of spending and other programs for the Biden administration is now over.

Amber Athey: Issues With Ronna McDaniel
"I have a lot of issues with ronna McDonald right now not least of which is the fact that she has now overseen three losing election cycles And yes I do consider this a loss even though we technically did win the house It was so far below expectations that I don't think anyone should be really celebrating And I have spoken to some activists and party organizers who point a lot of fingers at the RNC for its failure to really take up this red wave They didn't have a whole lot of money because Iran has been really dependent on the joint fundraising committee with Trump in order to get any donations into the RNC Their ground game in terms of where they sent their field staffers was completely inept They sent more field staffers to red states in some cases than they did to some of these toss up races And they also had this really weird scheme to capture what they call delinquent voters and I'm writing about this for the spectator right now The piece will be out tomorrow morning but what they refer to as a delinquent voter is basically if someone voted a month before the election in 2020 and hadn't voted let's say two weeks before the midterm election in 2022 the RNC was going to reach out to them and make sure that they voted But why were the efforts spent on targeting people who were probably going to vote anyway as opposed to trying to get the undecideds and independents who usually decide these elections So I think everything about their strategy here was just really backwards and a lot of it comes down to the fact that Rana has not proven herself in any of these battles and yet somehow keeps control of the leadership there at the RNC It's really horrible that she hasn't had to answer for any of this
Kari Lake Is Within Striking Distance of Victory in Arizona
"Within striking distance of the target. I know you've got to get back to your team to actually formally win the election that you've already won, but last one last question. Your opponent has to certify her loss against you. That's just insane. Oh, well, absolutely. I mean, and I'm sure she will, because that's her job. And it'll be very obvious that she lost. But we've been asking her to recuse herself since we got into this race. It's not right. If you're running for governor that you're controlling the race, that you have anything to say that our elections. The whole system is messed up. And that's why when we get into office, we're going to pass legislation that prevents the Secretary of State from having anything to do with an election that he or she is part of. We'll have to legislate that, unfortunately, and we will return to election day. We're no longer going to have a election month in Arizona where we're counting ballots then for an additional one to two weeks. It's outrageous.
Kash Patel: Nevada Has Mail-In Ballots but No Voter ID Laws
"If you're just tuning in I've got cash Patel who has been working closely with the Adam blacks out campaign I'm Lisa booth filling in for Dan bongino Cash what are the problems is Nevada recently codified and voted to make universal mail in ballot permanent How is that sort of change that a dynamics of this election as well And I know we've been talking about mail in balloting but just the mass amount Absolutely Here's the thing that Nevada also does that We don't have voter ID We have no voter ID laws out here And I'm not saying we shouldn't have mail in balloting Again go to Florida somewhere else They have a two week window for mail in ballots That window happens to close a week or so before the election so they can count everything and do it properly So there's a right way to do it where everybody who has access and needs mail in ballot can do so But Nevada for some reason get this allows you to mail in ballot And your vote can still come in as late as tomorrow Four days after election day and be counted by the mail in ballot process And then there's a signature Turing process which is a whole nother deal that they have out here
Kash Patel: Nevada Officials Chose to Delay Vote Counts
"I think a lot of people listening are just wondering what the heck's going on Well listen I'm in Nevada my home state I'm in Vegas I've been out here for Nevada and Arizona a lot on behalf of president Trump's candidates And here's the rundown What most people don't realize about Nevada is it's only a three and a half million vote count And Florida in places like Missouri who are two X three X that plus were able to count their ballots the same day And it's not that Nevada doesn't have that capability or Arizona which is even worse doesn't have it It's the elected officials chose to make it so They chose to have a two week run into the election for mail in ballots They chose to have an extended deadline And what Nevada was specifically problematic for us is a registrar's office in washoe and Clark county those are the two most heavily populated counties in Nevada 85% of the population Called the Alexa campaign on election day and said we are understaffed Literally they said we are understaffed As if they didn't expect the election day to come it's because of these rules that they make up and the current governor just lacking the current state AG and company have allowed these election type scenarios to play out So the mainstream media can perform their disinformation campaigns But where in a really good spot with the numbers and we can get into those if you'd like for lax law
Doug Reflects on the Shared Experiences of Veterans
"I want to share and just take a few minutes to share with some stories. And whether you're active duty, reserve, guard, we all have common experiences and it's just the love of the quote as you would war stories. The things that we go through, whether it be a boot camp drill instructor, whether it be, you know, your first generation squadron commander. You know, these are stories that bind those of us who've served together. And for our veterans out there who may be watching this podcast or if you're even if you're not a veteran, there's some things that I want you to be very proud of. I want you to know the kind of people that serve. There's many times in our country's history in which the younger generation is looked at as with scorn or disrespect that they don't have it together, the young people don't get it. But folks, I'm going to tell you the young people that go into our military get it. And we've had a lot of problems with the recruitment. We've had a lot of problems with a lot of things like, but the ones who come and start our country are some of the best around. I want to share just a few stories of just the folks that I got to serve with. I mean, in my time in the reserves, I'll just start here. And because, you know, always active beauty, it's understood, and I'm an active duty. And that's your day to today oxidation. But the reservist, I want to highlight as well as being a reservist for the last 20 plus years. I mean, you have to go and drill at least one time a month. So typically the first weekend of the month, you have two weeks out of the year. Depending on how your reserve duty entails. And I will guarantee you every time that something's going to happen at your house on that weekend, something where your job is going to go wrong, something, you're just going to be there to distract you. If you want to have a distraction, then know that your drill weekend is coming up and I guarantee it's going to happen. The water heater is going to break. Your kids are going to have get sick, your wife's going to get sick, then all going to run off. Some things going to happen, but yet you still have to show up. You still have to keep focus, and you have to learn and do your job. And that's what reservists and guardsmen do and active duty to do it every day.
Tyler Bowyer on Some Suspicious Ballot Behavior in Maricopa County
"Can you reiterate some of the math you were just talking about right here? Yeah, so I know a lot of people are on and I got tons of messages between yesterday and today because the media is trying to put out there in the world that like Katie Hobbs is going to be governor and stuff. It's just crazy. To reiterate what happened last night. And I apologize. I'm losing my voice from talking last 40. For the last two weeks. The media seems to have coordinated with the recorder's office and the elections department down at Maricopa County. And they were supposed to drop a massive drop yesterday at 6 p.m.. And that also happened to be the same time that Carrie Lake was going on Tucker Carlson. And she was on Tucker Carlson and it seemed it was odd. I mean, maybe it's just coincidence, but they did not drop the ballots that they were supposed to drop at 6 p.m.. And Carrie was on Tucker. And so then all of a sudden, it was delay delay delay delay, and then she got off Tucker, and then all of a sudden, they finally released and they said, oh, just kidding, we're not releasing all of the data that we said. We're going to release, we're going to release only a fraction of it. And at the same time, an article posted at the Arizona republic that was like, Katie Hoff still has a chance, basically. So that's what's going on.
Hashing It Out: Consensus Infrastructure
"That was a great interview with vitalik that we had two weeks ago. I really liked how he talked a lot about the history of consensus and where they are now and what they plan to do in terms of achieving single slot finality. And kind of include the 280 something thousand validators that are on Ethereum. And try to aggregate all of their signatures together. Yeah? I think it's interesting that he did a really good job of explaining how advances in cryptography and math, really. Allow us to make Jurassic changes in the way blockchain networks work. He did a really good job explaining kind of like a part of that math. I could go through BLS signatures and then how that allowed us to understand that they could do something they didn't think they could do beforehand. And then, and then relaying the ridiculous engineering feat of trying to make that a reality in a distributed ecosystem is something I think people underappreciate, right? So you can come up with a really cool way to do something and then make an improvement and an upgrade to a blockchain protocol. But the engineering aspect and community aspect of getting a bunch of other people who have very different opinions and motivations and levels of attention to do this as well and it's the reasonably synchronously is impressive. And that's something that as we move towards a much more distributed blockchain networks where it's reasonably fair and there's less and less levels of centralization, that becomes harder. And I think that's kind of an interesting thing to understand. It's not only like the cool innovations we can come up with by improving math and pushing research, but also the drastic engineering efforts of implementing these things.

"two weeks" Discussed on The Larry Elder Show
"Rehabilitated and real entertaining. This is the Carl Jackson podcast. All right, welcome to this edition of the Carl Jackson show podcast on this Wednesday. Guys, I hope you are getting excited for the election. The midterm elections, I certainly am. I'm gonna bring you do something a little different. I'm gonna bring some good news to you today. And I've been debating you guys remember you can message me on Facebook. I've been thinking about changing the moniker where I have been saying or I had been saying, I stopped doing it honestly 'cause I'm waiting for a response from you guys, but I have been telling you that this is the, what had I been saying, Gabe? Now I'm forgetting it. And I'm having a brain fart here, but this is your source of your daily dose of objective truth in a world of lies. I think I want to reconnect to my roots when I first started doing talking about politics. I did it from a biblical perspective, a biblical worldview. Now, don't worry guys, I'm not gonna come to you every day like I'm on the pulpit, but it was more so along this lines. What I used to say is that I communicate American exceptionalism to the common man by making politics personal and what I would do is often infuse the constitution Bill of rights to try to show people how man this stuff is good forever. It's just like the Bible in the sense that the principles outlined in our Bill of rights and the constitution endure forever forever and ever. They don't grow old whether with whatever technology comes along and et cetera. I think I'm kind of going back to that. That's kind of where, you know, I'm just like, I feel like I'm on this renewed journey. If you will, and I think that's kind of what God wants me to do, but let me know if you like the other moniker instead, but I'm thinking communicating American exceptionalism by making the constitutional communicating American exceptionalism by making the constitution personal. Anyway, let me know what you think. All right, let me get right into this. And again, I want to encourage you to follow me on social media.

"two weeks" Discussed on No Challenges Remaining
"Also in. This is the seventeen year old one year younger. They brought a con amazingly. They put it on center court every match. You like against us at this point but like kind of had a great win on this court against sec your stay in the third round but yeah like i don't know i just think it's like i think it's fine and i think that it's i understand. Why like again like soccer thing. Especially having just gone through the soccer thing i understand why like this resonates so much in the media this moment and all the different things that touches on but yeah i hope she's doing okay and i just think it was all like super human but not superhuman. You're not just. I mean i think most people who follow the sport recognize that and even for an eighteen eighteen is young but for an eighteen year old. She's even for that for. Who would get on the stage. She's completely inexperienced And and that's just really frustrating thing about honesty like follow. Even i'm sure like for fans following tennis is just the people who swooping in england some than just you know have just have to any subject on all sides in just have opinions without. I could never like just for like soup into a sport. I don't really know. And you know like on hooky and just have these like loud. You know opinions about like something. I don't know i wouldn't have that confidence. I would want to make sure that was just such a you know this is going on a different subject but tennis being you know having these permanent stars in moments but people really following on a day to day basis is just such. It's toxic. It's it's it's it's it feels like not unsustainable shoeshine shine award for it but it feels like ripe for disaster. Right in this happens like is not a new phenomenon. I think it's a growing phenomenon. But certainly like serena had this more recently dated her career like twenty eighteen years open everybody had takes about that and but almost none of them like new like the code of conduct rules basically or the the code violation rules that were sort of the the things and then that one. He gave her game penalty for for that. Like if you can get any penalty anyway you know. There's like context of stuff that like the locals. Call them that leg that they haunted in on it and loudly and you know crossley. And i don't feel like the The mcenroe comments which got some blowback. I don't feel like those were as bad from what i saw. May basically said what she said later you know like she was warmer the moment essentially you two major but then but yeah but then like obviously the piers. Morgan said his name. Sorry so regarding the macnamara comments. I think the issue was that the i mean there wasn't really necessary to start like properly speculating. After happened that to me was was issue on the. I mean it's completely random dungeon and just you know it was coherent but like to me like when i was listening you know. He was trying to like be sympathetic. You know he was trying to say that you know the reason why his giving an example and i said this is someone who you know. I have issues with the lowest coverage. Yeah but like. He's someone who was trying to give examples of you know of the people who had been in that position. It wasn't the time of the place of the moment wherever is completely different from those other people even though they Group together for people who were saying she couldn't handle the pressure and that's bad but those to me completely different things i have. I will say a little sympathy is the wrong word. But like i have some. I think it's tough being live on air having to react assigning rod. Connie when it's happening when you don't know what's happening again no information all you see is basically what would just describe to. She's breathing heavily. She's leaving the court. he's not coming back. You know like if you're a paid commentator with a microphone and they say john what do you think or whatever in this moment like you know maybe cut someone some slack there. Yeah but this is obviously not normally makmur defend show. Don't turn it into one either. I just think the. I think it's a tricky issue and again. Obviously what i said before holds hope. Emma's doing okay and come in some lower pressure environment wherever that may be and Thrive or casino in our growth experience too because obviously wimbledon.

Yeah more more heat to handle a you know a about oviously a robot ready to kind of just kind of funny to before this happened. The cocoa was asked about coming back to send a cool off. The twenty nineteen shows like a Remember and it just it just kind of hit home how this is just one tournament. It's one point in your life. You know the good on the so.

I dislike the losses kind of the point of tennis. No in losses are not supposed to be easy either like there's some growing that happens from them for sure. Yeah any other. Try to think of other things to talk about in the women's draw before we wrap this up kerber. Did well one question. What do you think of coq about court assignments cook. A goff played three matches in a row on center court and two of them. The third one was against curbs former champion but the other two were against players would never have come near that on their own credentials. Vezina guess former semi-finalist seen but not really cayenne. Obviously like so is that is that good is that bad is that just is what it is..

Those like they're only six breaks total for the first four thirteen breaks in the fence. Just that in itself of never seen anything like and yet another another mental would be just just quickly felix just hit an astronomy be it ended. I dunno if given. He's wc so many finals in los that good tournaments in this book those they were kind of like. If you know you know for obvious reasons but it was nice to see him tournament end on a good note to end with bertini generally did end positively. You're right yeah. That was a good one for like seeing him. Not big closer on torah level for so long i was not about confidence match against zverev. Sarah wasn't amazing that much either. Not a great match honestly like level wise but goodwin for field so hopefully inspire confidence or him down the road because like i think that like he needs like a little bit more just sorta like swagger sounds lazy but like it doesn't always seem like his. His belief is totally there. I think he has like a lot of like gifts. Obviously in his game physically and and technique wise and everything and he's very solid player. I feel like he's missing an edge. You know you're. I agree about social also. I don't wanna see him. I mean whether it's with tonio north just to see his game like develop more which tony robinson. happy wrong. i might be wrong by heard me. He wasn't just like to see his game kind of developed more and just become more well. Rounded. 'cause i think that that's you know when he was younger. That's what everyone saw it. They thought he would develop into other know someone who who's defense with as important as his attack whereas is his his more one dimensional than it's one of those things where being well rounded can at some points that will be nothing special you know like i think it's kind of could be a little bit good to have i don't for me like more of a clear plan in your game and i don't know that he has bertini. Thirteen clearly has things he does out there like. It's a very specific way of playing winning matches prepared. And i don't know if i can describe felix attendance in the same way at this point. Maybe i'm just stupid. Always on the table solution. But i don't. I don't see it as being as like clearly imagined from his side and that's why when he's still obviously we keep saying him instead time. Is this a good result to make a make this quarter and beat sheriff onto women. You been straw. Has the final tomorrow between ashby number. One and caroline. Let's go who is eight seed ranked number thirteen which means that this will be this slam. Interro that has no matches between two top ten ranked w. players which is a wild wild stat. The wilder stat though. I feel like this woman's will and finally that i tweeted it. Also maybe you haven't this wimbledon women's final it's the first wimbledon women's final to feature to players who neither men and final before sense.

"The most of the Of was ming he won fifteen consecutive service wentz and most of them were just like service winners. Took which was reading or even like some like. We're just not place. Well joke which was in couldn't get racket when there was and then suddenly i four five you just made like two incredible guns at the beginning of the game and then he just focuses on he just has that crazy ability to when if the moment is when he needs to. And that's not everyone can do. Not everyone person who couldn't win. Points much roger federer down the stretch of his quarterfinal loss to heuberger catch. This was not necessarily shocking shocking. That federal could lose to her catchers. Obviously a good player miami champion but the way in which he lost was sort of like. Wow because the end of the second half of this match went real fast. Second third second because the second tie-break right so like it was three six and no like that third was very possibly the worst set of roger federer's career and it went just like so quickly like he was obviously catch. Played pretty well but like it. Which is going so fast. And you would think there'd be some sort of like i don't know second wind or something you get when like when you when there's all this thought in everyone's mind honestly this year last wimbledon when you're roger federer to go out like that i'm not saying they said like diminishes his legacy on any level but like it was kind of a sudd- of exit for him here. What had otherwise been a pretty good tournament for him you know but like that was. That was weird to watch. The crowd was like it was kind of the same thing for her cash. A little bit against bertini because catch wasn't winning games at all in the middle of that match and the the crowd just had this sort of like pleading. Please win a game. Like type clapping. It does here. And they didn't get with federer and they eventually got it with with her catch actually pulled him back into that matching won the third. Set a shaggy places back on. If you can hear that it's cleaning up court one where we are here. But what do you make fetters exit here. Just kind of funny. How the music. It's funny it was just crazy. How you know four four two sets. He was actually five fighting. You know he was fighting heart and you could tell you know. He struggled badly with its four hundred timing. It was really windy day and took richard after that the conditions with some of the windiest space and he will start. He couldn't like they go to a point where he can before by. It was crazy to see in the tie-break when obviously he was trying to fight back in he slept. And then that just you know he. So he slept on. He said i think he was down to three separate. A good point came to net at an easy volley than stepped on that. Just you know that was my sofa and then yes and then by by the end it was just. That wasn't much with. It just seemed to get you know you're waiting for him to find some rhythm. When it's four hundred holds up you know once but it just seemed it just tougher and tougher. I wonder how much of that was him knowing that he would have to come back from two sets down and best from that level. And he's like i. I'm an old man. I can't do this anymore. That's like you know you can think the same way match management for these guys. Whether it's like murray murray from two sets down seeking women and matches probably not married when five center in zoster oughta the first week. But you know. I think these guys have sort of have to have to be realistic. A little bit and federal actually had a great five-set record in recent years period. Even before this most recent comeback. I don't know. I just thought it was a weird way to go out. He says he doesn't know who back or not. Obviously still sort of playing it by ear. He says at least out loud. We don't know who can play the olympics yet. That's not confirmed although we do now me no bands at the olympics in the stadium which is going to be dissuading for a lot of players including fetter and jovovich. Who still on. The list wouldn't talk about olympics later date that's going on here but like the have. Yeah i don't know. Do you think this was the last time we saw roger wimbledon. Maybe not. I mean i don't he doesn't also but i do think it's gonna 'cause i mean i genuinely believe in when he says he doesn't know by. I think it's just i do. I'm actually interested in fascinated by this kind of period of federal career. Where i mean thinking about the hallo when he was kind of so so kind of kind of checked out mentally and then after the i mean we talked about this in the loss of. Just how upset. He wasn't how i think he naturally. He's what to federal he. Probably even after ninety. Probably envision kind of that. This wouldn't you know he hoped that you know this wouldn't happen to send you know. Losing an co final is a you know if you think about it. It's it's a good result on and he. He played some great tennis to get. Even you know to get to this round for nine years old. It's an achievement. But it's similar with. Mari like you make these stripes than than a wool so civilian just takes the window. What's weird about the federal wallows. The federal wall seems mental. Like it's the brain going before the body at this moment for federer in the felix sauce in certain and then again here like just not being able to pull himself morale this anyway so signed a washer federal i definitely don in his last match period. I am very confident that he wants to play the us open. So we'll keep on keeping on. Maybe we'll take a wild card into washington with his buddy rafael doll. You never know. I think ultimately i think it would depend on. I mean. obviously he's talked about how. How mega and his family feel about travelling. Also just how he feels on the cool and whether he is able to whether this comeback isn't just going to be as difficult as this so or if he's going to reach a point where he plays to a level that he's even if he isn't winning back if he loses to hook ashes and four typeset five cents. I dunno not almost just one more thing on that kind of shook me that he only been bagel once in the twentieth century to tune it out of the friendship. Like that's i would've assumed that like occasionally one run the other right. Yeah yeah that's obviously right. But like i remember the cincinnati final where he bagel jovovich. Nothing surprising you remember match. And then he wanted. It was six and there was a sabre in there that was flemish. Yeah so Federer and other thoughts on things that happened in the second week. Oh we should mention the fifth south casanova glow. Oh my gosh yes. Could karen shine off against the fashion korda. This fifth set was like nothing. I've ever seen sorry. It's like many things. I've seen many times in women's tennis. Honestly where just hold serve me nothing but to see this in a match between two guys who are six or five and six foot six respectively on grass big-serving guys who are also not returning like amazing like this. This was wild. It was ten eight in the fifth ultimately after thirteen breaks of serve. Many many breaks of serve in a row hatch failed survey. I believe three times in a row and and he admitted afterwards it was nerves. It's funny because i think is inexperience. He was returning really well that and then like no. We were just terribly nervous. They had very different. Takes on it. i'm happy to say was pretty upbeat about it. It was not taking it too hard and he shouldn't use his first time playing this tournament for men's into the fourth round which is great and could one that much probably wouldn't have much of a shot ship off the next round but yeah he. He had himself a really nice term. Beat dan evans soundly now. But that was that was a wild scene. Where you think is you're watching. That was confused bonus. The and i was just i mean i mean i get like casanova in particular would say that it was because he was you know..

"On night. Eleven wimbledon from wimbledon. I'm ben rothenberg. Joined by ncr's spain and sub saharan african correspondent it's to monte carrio of the guardian. Thanks for being on hair again whereas having is my job. You are the correspondence to keep up after all. You're doing that valiantly so we appreciate that as always. We have not done a show since middle sunday when cornyn did a show a united show mid last week but was want to catch up on basically all the fourth round quarterfinals finals and set up for the final. So some heavy lifting here for us to radically. But we'll talk and relatively broad strokes. I think probably makes sense to survive for kate. The men and women. Do you wanna start with the men and the women men okay. Sure let's start. Men men play today. The men's final was set up today Which after matteo bertini one in four sets over uber or catch and in the next match between straits tough straights straits over dennis shop. Of all off this sets up a match between bertini and jovic. I don't think it's a surprising. Final people pick bertini to make the final when the draw came out after his run at queens although which is kind of weird in respect it wasn't a great tweens tournament but for some reason that was a real a real beatification of his chances and and he's is backed up and he's looked really good. I was impressed with matt during this this whole week and especially today i think actually this is probably his best match so far from me to go back to you know people rating of before the tournament of the so many young players just on comfortable on grosso haven't played the best dennison. He has shown that you know from like from the second season on gross now he was he played well it and so essentially kind of. It's not surprised at all that he's in the final vote it would happen. I'm surprised i thought would happen. Actually happened if you go mainly normally something goes. Hey unless it's involving the big three. Yes some you know. Something goes wrong. But it's kind of lived up to it which gordon yeah. I was actually talking with his one his new. Pr guy. richard evans. He's atp. You'll know who. I ran into him and pete holtman. During the first week. I was on my way to watch ostapenko versus kazakhstan. Aso's a second round day. I guess and their third round day. I can't remember what trump that was. It was and i was talking about thirteen. I said yeah looked with bertini straw. it doesn't make the final. It's a catastrophe and apparently they found that very memorable. I said that and so. They apparently pietton. Richard were texting each other each day. Saying you know when other win like one step. Closer to avoiding catastrophe and today is essentially. What a catastrophe. So it's interesting with with framing it for these guys with both bertini shop of all because both of them were really talking meaningfully and believing it feeling that they can win this tournament. They were like they're ready to make deep run tier to do well to be like ready to contend and by the way both of them are talking about it strikes me as different from. We usually hear from the big guys but that causes his justified. More or less. With the exception of the existence of novak djokovic persisting i think which goes into the final as a big favorite dance bertini but bertini. I think has plausibly as good chances anybody of beating him. Also so i don't know is the guys getting closer or not meaningfully to winning to actually hold on a grand slam trophy. I mean i mean honestly the to be honest of the biggest differences. The older guys. That rougher isn't here. I mean obviously he'd been his form away from clay i'd been waning. You know clearly federer's forty next month. So i think that's the biggest change over. I mean these parents also improved a lot shovel of show us improve. Play some amazing tennis. You know especially in the second week against these and now will i mean too less accent against marian and then bertie news like improving constantly. So i think it's a mixed up. I don't think. I don't think they've gone become going. Meaningfully closer justin center like them opportunities. And i think the reason why that speaking gnaws because they're speaking like opening up. I wanted to win the tournament. Because i mean it would be kind terrible if they weren't you know this isn't you know isn't kind of the clear like barrier of the big three of having to beat two of them you know while people aren't you right like back in like david fromm never talk about winning a slam and he was in a final. I don't think ever thought was within reach. You know like and there is a meaningful difference in this attitudes generations. A bit you're right at the bar is lower. When really it's only meaningfully. Jovic but djokovic is still quite a bar. I mean his his only only said he's lost jack draper for it was the first when he was on a fallen all over the place and then he got that together. Okay you know. Like i joke. Which is such an incredible manager of tournaments. Like he's so good at at doing what he needs to do. He's so economical about his tennis about this energy. Most of the time. Obviously there some occasional blow ups but like for the most part. He's so good at peaking when it matters being right when it matters like yeah he spent most of the first set against have evolved down a break and then he when he needed to he broke back. Got the set you know like and then you see like twenty thousand final here against federal like he loses you say. He doesn't win nearly twenty points in the mashed fourteen zero point something like that in total in the match a big number but he like never made an error in any tie-break like that's that's just like makes him so so calculating and so good and so like tough to to be Pulling all the strings out there awhile times. I'm speaking stay in the air but to me it's the most clutch player in israel coming out and you know like for example today against Chipotle of as.

Walk me to the back. It's not really a restaurant. They're just using like the kitchen at this community center so they walk me back there. They have me. Wade's and apparently that week. They weren't going to be in the kitchen. They were doing pop up shops like all over the all over the city so i was like okay so i look at their instagram. And i see that. They announced it on their instagram stories. That they're popping up all over the place like all right today. didn't work. Today was a fail. So i'll go another day. I'll go like. I don't know wednesday thursday to go see if i can catch them somewhere so sure enough. I try to do that after work. I drive across town to go find these taco to define this taco stand. And i'm walking around in this parking lot. I'm like they stay. They're saying they're right here between these times and i can't find them and so it's hot and i'm getting frustrated and i'm like okay. That's another al. I'm feeling so desperate now chasing these tackles like oh. I'm so pregnant right now. this is so annoying. finally. I think it was like two weeks later. I was like i'm gonna give it another shot. I went back to this like community center. And they're looking at me crazy like this lady really wants to these tacos and i finally finally able to like pick some up and try them. And i'm like in my head on my. They're probably not gonna be good anymore. Because have over hyped on my thumb but they were in a credible there were so good their culture bosco tacos. Are they in the center or no. You have to go into the center to get him. They are they actually have a back door. You can order them online. You go to the back and you pick them up there but Seem real yeah. I felt so desperate. I was at community center. All of may every tuesday and thursday. And it may i never saw that taco shop never told me and i'm like a my how how did i would have been my senate basketball practice there all the time i have been i would have been there eating those tacos all the time And i don't understand how. I missed that not like a restaurant and i really a shop. You're just using their kitchen like there's no sign or anything but if you go to their website they give you instructions on like where to park door to ground club in l. a. Though hearts again they were worth they were really worth and they're so close to us school to basketball. Yeah yeah like so basco your neighborhood. So saturday. we were watching The basketball game. The phoenix suns versus the clippers. And we were just you know just hanging out at home and it. It got pretty late because afterwards we were watching this boxing match. And then my husband and i look at each other and we're like sounds good in and out burger which just go in and out burger where else pretty lace pratt like. Eleven thirty saturday night and so we leave and as soon as we pulled out of our garage our entire national hood was packed with people like it looked like straight out of a movie scene. Like not even exaggerating. We couldn't really drive like we had to slowly move so to make sure that we wouldn't hit anyone and we're like what is happening right now and people are partying drinking like they're yelling and you. We couldn't really hear anything from our house because our neighborhood has always playing music so we just heard music and we thought okay. Whatever like somebody's having a party but no it was like streets just streets full of people and so mad at myself because i was just kind of like shocked and in all like what this was just right outside our house and we had no idea and i was so mad that i didn't record but we left and we almost had to pull over to the and be like. Did we just see like what is happening. What are they celebrating. What are they partying. Like what what's going on so we went in and now and it actually took forever because It along the line was long and we waited forever to get our food. We drove back and it was already kind of clearing up. So i wasn't able to take any pictures or video but then at the end we were like. That's kind of messed up like we don't get invited literally. Seemed like every single person was out there all our neighbors and we had no idea. Nobody said anything i flyer. Maybe they stuck it in the door and some and somehow it got lost. Maybe i hope so. But we didn't see anything like that's i don't know we also left out like they want clean. We actually start kids picking up some the kids to like hey We we like to party can invite us party party right now. Well i mean. I don't have to drink but i can go. Go out there and see what's going on but we were just. I was just shocked with the amount of people that were out there. It was flooded. It looks straight up like a movie scene. Eleven thirty nine. You went on an nfl. All your stories all food could be pregnant because they were filming hip hop video. Have they done that in your neighbor before. They've done that before but no this was in a video part because they had table set up on the on the street and everything joe's running around. We just saw that yesterday too.

So that makes it a little weird because people some people are really hooked into what they believe about health and fitness and totally the same for diet and nutrition. What whatever you say whatever you throughout their someone has a different thought. Different opinions something else that works for them. And that's cool because we're all different. I don't believe there is any one size fits all solution to fitness health wellness diet. I believe there are some common principles that tend to work well for most people. That's just from my observation. Not from any expertise but we are all different and so. I don't think there's one perfect right way for anyone and you know we talk about fitness and health. Course would probably talk weight. That's a big part of it. And i'm kinda starting to discover. The talking about weight is a little bit like talking about age. And so if you're listening to this. I know that you know you probably talk about think about age as well. You know. it's something that all of us are thinking about but there are some really weird social norms about discussing it and so on one hand. As i talk about my journey here i wanna discuss all the numbers and all the details because they provide great context to help you understand my specific situation in the progress that i'm making but on the other hand getting into the details in the numbers can be a real distraction because those are my details numbers and they stay apply specifically to me but not generally to other people and so i'm going to try and find a balance in there as we talk about this so fitness and health goals getting in the best shape of my life. What does that mean to me again. Shape your life is probably different but for me..

"Do things that i didn't even realize i wanted to do something even as small as my closet or cleaning out my car. You know what i mean. It's like all of a sudden. I like am inspired to do things that i like would have never done before but i will shed some light on the more difficult side of kind of logging off of the internet in a sense and becoming more present and distracting yourself less honest it actually can be also kind of emotional because we use these apps. These video games. These online activities as distractions right. And when you take away distractions. You're left with reality. And if you're reality kinda sucks at the moment it can be really upsetting when you become more present because now you have to deal with your shit right. You can't just go on tiktok for two hours and forget about your problems. If you're on this journey to becoming present right you can't anymore. You have to work through shit. You actually have to work through your problems. You can't run away and start online shopping to numb your pain. You can't you have to face that shit head on a good example would be. When i was on the treadmill and i was going on tiktok. My mind was on autopilot. I would think about nothing but the take talks. I was watching now. When i'm on the treadmill i stare at the wall. And i think about shit random shit whatever comes in my head it just. It's almost meditative in a sense. I'm just thinking about stuff like as they come and go. Well when you're just walking on the treadmill and thinking something upsetting might come to your head. Like for example. The other day. I was on the treadmill and i was just thinking to myself and i started to room mate about all the people in my life and i started to get anxious and i started to get this feeling like the would if everybody is using me. Like what if everybody's using me like what if nobody cares about me truly would if everybody has an ulterior motive. This is like fear that i have a lot. Whatever it's just something that i get anxious about frequently because i don't know my my anxiety likes to fixate on random things and that's one of them them like i get anxious about that frequently right just all. The sudden feeling frightened that like everybody around me is not genuine which is nothing personal to the people in my life at all. But it's like literally just an anxious thought it's completely irrational and stupid with absolutely no legitimacy behind it all but it's one of those things where it's just like something that my anxiety. It's just something that my brain likes to fixate on when it's anxious okay. Whatever so that thought came into my head. While i'm on the treadmill now normally when i would get an anxious thought i would go on my phone and go on tiktok and forget about my anxious. Thought i didn't even realize i was doing that okay. I no idea. I was even doing that but now that i don't have talk anymore. I'm on the treadmill. I'm walking. I start to have this anxious thought and i didn't have anything to distract myself with so i had to sit there with this thought and to work through it by myself and just get through it and the interesting thing is i was able to get through it and i was able to pass it because i didn't immediately jump up gone my phone go on tiktok and just pushed the problem back because i think what we don't realize is is that when we don't work through things they don't go away things. Don't just go away. that's just not how it works. If you didn't pay off your credit card bill that will come back to bite you one way or another. That will come back to bite you. It does not go away. Okay if you have an anxious thought about something you can distract yourself for a little bit but it'll come back. It does not go away until you face it head on and you be present.

"My work life has improved my social life even as improved. Because now i go and do more things during the daylight hours of the day and like i see more people in a sense like now that i wake up early in the morning. I'm more likely to go to a coffee shop early in the morning and talk to the barista like stuff like that like. It's those tiny things you know. I don't think we realize how these tiny things effect everything another thing that could be fucking up your life more than you realize is like a shitty relationship you know you have a toxic friend in your life that makes you anxious and makes you feel under appreciated on a daily basis and you're just putting up with it because you're like well. It's not that bad. You know what. I mean but in reality. It's making your day to day life more stressful in more uncomfortable than it needs to be. I think that we as humans tend to kind of go on autopilot in a sense when things. Aren't that bad when things aren't that bad. We just go on autopilot right when problems. Not that bad. We're like okay. Well we can deal with this. We'll just keep going because you don't realize how bad it really is. It takes a wakeup call before you realize. Oh i need to delete that app off my phone or i need to start going to bed earlier because this is actually causing me severe mental upset now or i really need to cut this person in my life because now it's getting really bad but it's like why do we let it get to rock bottom before we make change like that's what happened to me with tiktok okay. I did not delete the app off my phone until i had a full depressive episode for like multiple days over over the fucking stupid app. It took me getting to that point to delete the app. It took me literally getting four hours of sleep per night and being almost sick. With how little sleep. I was getting because my sleep schedule was so bad before i realized i needed to fix it. You know what i'm saying. We get to rock bottom before we're like okay. It's now now we need to. We need to change. This shit needs to change. But it doesn't need to be that way you know what i mean. I think that it's so important for us to every once in a while. Sit back maybe write in a journal all the habits that we have in our lives and we can analyze of habits are serving us in making our lives better and which habits are making our lives worse and even if the habits are making our lives a little bit worse work on removing those habits in.

"I haven't talked about the mental health element of it all because i actually deleted tiktok for mental health reasons because it was just destroying me mentally. I talked about that. Not my last episode but in episode before it that persona titled how am i really doing. Please feel free to listen to that. I talk more about tiktok and how it led me to a mental breakdown. But anyway check out if you want. But i deleted the app because it kind of made me freak out a bit have a little mental breakdown. That was initially why. I got rid of that. But deleting the app has benefited my mental health in many other ways in addition to just helping with that one mental breakdown. It's helped my general mental health. For example on tiktok you see a lot of different types of people. Doing a lot of different types of things which can be inspiring can be educational. Whatever but it can also make you feel like you're a loser and the reason for that is is that you know when you see somebody on tiktok waking up at five in the morning every morning to go run six marathons and then rescue seven hundred puppies from a waterfall or some shit like yeah. You're gonna feel kind of like shit about yourself right. I felt like that's how take talk was it was like whether i liked it or not. I was consuming content of people doing more extravagant things than me and subconsciously. I e felt self conscious about that. I was constantly comparing myself to the people. I was seeing on tiktok and simply removing the app for my life simply removed. That comparison and i've felt a lot more focused on me in focus on what i'm doing rather than what everybody else is doing or what i could be doing because i think that's the thing about tiktok seeing all these people doing all these things that i could be doing whereas now i do things because i want to do them not. Because i'm like. I need to like better my life because i'm seeing some tiktok doing this to better their lives. I should probably do that to like. Oh there you know waking up super early or oh they're going to bed super early or you know. They're they're learning how to knit. Like i don't know all these people doing all these things that's productive you know or inspiring that can be great but then it can also sometimes just make you feel like shit. I realized by cutting out tiktok. That tiktok was the worst app for me. Personally when it came to comparing myself to others. I definitely compare myself to others on instagram subconsciously. For sure but for some reason tiktok was worse. I don't know why that is. But i was constantly comparing myself to take talk. I did not realize it. In the moment but i totally was every day i was consuming this content. That was making me feel bad about myself and making me feel like i wasn't doing enough with my life. You know In i mean. I feel like i've found a balance with instagram. Like i found a way to not compare myself to others on instagram as much anymore. I don't know why that is. I feel like i've been able to establish a really healthy balance with instagram At this point in my life who knows. I might go down a bad path with instagram again. But i don't know. I just i muted a bunch of people on instagram. Like i literally barely go on it anymore. And i just don't really follow people that make me feel insecure on instagram. So i feel pretty good about my relationship with instagram right now. It doesn't bug me right now. Which is great but tiktok. I was comparing myself to people and it was making me feel like shitty the lake shit not like shady but whatever. I think the big moral of the story is less like. Hey you should delete tiktok off your phone. And it's more that we don't realize how much of an impact little habits have on the bigger picture of our lives okay. I didn't realize that my seemingly harmless habit of going on tiktok every day was fucking up my attention span fucking up my self esteem and wasting a shit ton of my time. I didn't realize how severe the problem was. Was i aware of the problem. Yes to a certain extent. But i kind of turned a blind eye to it. I was like well talks bad for your mental health. But as long as i don't go on too much. I'm fine. I like didn't wanna quit going on it. I deep down deep down knew that it was bad. I did but i thought that i could find a balance. I thought that i could find the happy medium. I really did. I didn't realize how something that seems so inconsequential as a social media. App could be having that many negative effects on my life without me fully being able to grasp it in the moment. Like i think in my head before i deleted take talk. I always told myself if this was really really a problem. I would know it. You know what i mean. It must not be that bad of a problem. Because i don't really feel like it. Is you know. I would know if this was a really bad problem. I think i have it under control. It sometimes gets a little bit out of control. But then i pull the reins back a little bit. And i'm like all right and then i get it under control again. I didn't realize that the mere fact that i had take talk on my phone was making my life ten times worse like genuinely and this extends beyond social media apps. You know what i'm saying. This could be anything in your life for example waking up too late in the day or having a bad sleep schedule okay. I used to have a terrible sleep.

"Because literally two weeks ago that would have been impossible like i would get so bored on the treadmill without take talk that i couldn't go on the treadmill without it now. I use my treadmill time wisely. I'm actually using it to like think. And do you know some self reflection in like do that work on myself. And i'm using. I'm like i'm able to multitask in such a more efficient way. Now right he or another example would be you know. Today i got my nails done and normally when i get my nails done i turn my phone on silent in watch tiktok which is crazy that i used to do that because i couldn't even hear the talks but yet going on tiktok during my nail appointment made the nail appointment feel like it was two minutes long because i was so sucked into my phone. The whole time. That i didn't even notice what was going on in the next thing out. Ding nails are done. Great well today. Got my nails done and i didn't even want to go on my phone at all. I was like you know what. I'm just going to sit here and enjoy this. And i got my toes down and i got my fingers done and i just enjoyed when the lady was massaging my feet and it felt good. And you know. I kinda zoned out and was just like thinking about random stuff. I think that quitting take talk has forced my brain to learn how to entertain itself because for over a year. Anytime i was bored. I was going on tiktok now. I don't even want to distract myself. Like i look forward to these moments when i'm kind of bored in a sense to just think it sounds so simple and it sounds stupid but like i actually look forward to those moments like when i was getting my nails done today. I i wasn't even board because my brain was entertaining itself or now when i go to the gym and i go on the treadmill and i'm staring at the wall. My brain is entertaining itself. Like i don't need that distraction anymore and don't get me wrong. I still go on instagram. I still watch youtube videos and stuff here and there dogging wrong. I still do that stuff. You know But those things don't stimulate me as much as tiktok us to like. I enjoy watching a youtube video. But i watch two or three youtube videos. And i'm like i'm good or ice. Scroll and instagramfor. Like maybe ten minutes max max and i'm like i'm bored because it's not as fast paced. You know what. I'm saying like tiktok is fast paced and never ending. You can scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll and you get new shit every fifteen seconds every like fifteen to sixty seconds you get new content right whereas on youtube or instagram. It's a slower stream of content. So i don't find that. I have a problem with wasting time on those platforms as much which is great but tiktok man. I couldn't believe how much of a difference it made to delete it. Nothing.

"I hope you're having a beautiful gorgeous day. Let me tell you something crazy. I have not opened the tiktok app in two weeks. Now to those of you. Who don't participate in tiktok. You don't have the app or you. Just don't use it. You don't care for it for those of you. This may sound like nothing right but to those of you who were like me. And who are addicted to tiktok into us tiktok daily whether that is to post or to watch videos whatever it may be then. This is actually crazy. I went on tiktok every single day for like over a year. Maybe two years. I went on tiktok every single day every time i was bored every time i had a free moment anytime i was on the treadmill anytime. I was in a waiting room at the doctor's office anytime i was bored. And had access to the tiktok app. I was scrolling through it specifically i was scrolling through my for you page. Which for those of you. Who don't take talk is i mean. I don't know how you don't take talk is but the for you page is basically the explore page on. Tiktok take talk just feeds you random videos and you can watch in scroll for hours it never ends and that's the for you page. It's what tiktok thinks. You wanna watch the it's for you. It's the for you page. Okay whatever i used to scroll through the for you page on tiktok for probably three hours a day without even realizing i was doing it because it had become a habit for me. You know like any moment aboard. I had i was scrolling on the for you. Page it just. It was an automatic response to boredom for me. I didn't even think anything of it. It never even really seemed like a problem to me. Like i knew that tiktok was probably a bad thing and i knew that i probably shouldn't be going on it that much but i don't think i actually realized how bad the problem was until i cut tiktok out of my life cold turkey in today's episode. I'm going to be talking to you about what i've learned from quitting tiktok cold turkey because as dumb as it may sound this has been a genuinely life changing experience like it sounds so fucking dumb like it sounds so dumb but.
