'Antifascism' Author Paul Gottfried and Eric Compare Fascism to Totalitarianism

"Why would we say that fascism or nazism is on the right. And the radical left is on the left. I don't get it. In other words, to me, freedom is freedom. And when you veer away from freedom, in other words, what is the big difference between what we will call fascism under Hitler and totalitarianism under the Chinese today or the Soviets? Okay, I think from our perspective and I think we sort of share the same sort of liberal constitutional views, traditional but we favor freedom unlimited government, all these other good things, they may look the same, but they're not. I think that Italian fascism and the sort of on the low end of authoritarianism, I think that the communists are much more thorough in their efforts to control people's behavior. The right is anti Galilean. It's hierarchical. The left believes in some maybe some abstractions, but often in some practical sense that all human beings are equal and interchangeable. But of course, it's patently hypocritical nonsense. In other words, let's not pretend because they say they believe in these things that when you look at communist societies, you see, you see Strata, you do not see everybody treated the same. So that's called hypocrisy. We're lying. And you see it everywhere whenever you're dealing with socialism or communism, and I think that I still don't see that the differences are that big of a deal. In fact, I agree with you that when you think about Mussolini, Mussolini is a pussycat compared to Hitler. Or Stalin. But so these are just

Jen Psaki Flubs Question Over China Missile Development

"That. Now I want to go to a Jen Psaki whopper yesterday. And were you in the press room yesterday? Yes. Okay. Do you know what I'm going to get? I don't know. Okay. It is cut number 17. You comment on reports that China has saved a nuclear capable hypersonic missile over this summer to the surprise of your professional as accurate and raised concerns about Chinese people's capability. I know general secretary Austin, I should say, was asked this question this morning and addressed it. But I'm not going to comment on the specific report. I can say echo what he said, which is generally speaking, we've made clear our concerns about the military capabilities that the PRC continues to pursue. And we have been consistent in our approach with China. We welcome stiff competition, but we don't do not want that competition to veer into conflict. And that is certainly what we convey privately as well. We welcome stiff competition, caught the eye of every person who follows nuclear weapons and especially hypersonics, Michael scheer. Did that sound like a clunker off of your ear when you heard it? Yeah, it did. I mean, you know. Welcoming stiff competition is what you normally think of in terms of perhaps development of consumer technology or something that doesn't have national security implications. It's hard to imagine the administration truly welcoming stiff competition when it comes to development of nuclear weapons or advanced advanced deployment systems of nuclear warheads. I mean, so yes that seemed to me to be at odd way of phrasing that

How Can You Escape Binary Thinking?

"I want to be less of a binary thinker and. I wonder if you can help me. Stephen you know they're two kinds of people couldn't resist. Here's my problem. I'm not sure whether this is me personally. Whether this is the human condition or whether it's the human condition in the modern era you know society and politics and media being what they are in this early twenty first century. I guess it is. But i feel that the confidence of all these forces constantly hurting me into yes or no blacker way all or nothing choices. You can't belong to political movement x. Unless you subscribe to all twenty of its tenants and precisely zero of the other movements twenty tents for example now my brain and even my soul no that the world should not work that way that there's so much more nuance than variation to how life should unfold. But it's hard to not veer toward binary thinking. So how can i and everyone get better at that. Well you're not alone. It salient with politics. These days especially in the united states that you're you know all the way onside although the end of its don't seem to be a lot of people in the middle ground not a lot of room or permission even to be a moderate but it's actually much more fundamental cognitive scientists have been documenting just how systematic the distortion is when we try to summarize evidence and we binary is we create categories of what is effectively data. That's so interesting. Can you give an example. There was a study in science and the title of this paper is the binary bias. Oh it's a thing. Yeah plus a little ration- binary bias a systematic distortion in the integration of information and these scientists run variety of paradigm. that essentially. Say that when people are looking at data and visualizations of data center that they tend to be biased toward this extremity. That's in their own minds. But it's not really in data so we tend to make categories of continuous data and there are other studies documenting this tendency when i thought about this without being a scientist to studies directly. I thought there must be a functional

That's the mechanism for a poster. Hip injury If you recall to have an injury where his went into the ground you're basically driving the thighbone the femur towards the back end of the hip socket Ryan fitzpatrick had what is being termed a subway station of his hip. Essentially were they the femur slips part way out of the socket but doesn't fully dislocate and then repositions itself automatically now. The good news is that it wasn't a complete dislocation but there can be a lot of trauma associated with that both to the soft tissue around the joint but also within the joint itself. So it's really important I'm sure he'll undergo further testing today. That's the expectation to rule out any sort of fracture. Even bone bruise veer. The word bone bridge.

Louis lukens lose now. A senior partner at the consultancy cigna global. Good afternoon to you lou and tell us this phone call after a hiatus does he represent a real meaningful breakthrough in your view. Hey tom i think it's too early to tell. If this is a meaningful breakthrough. But i think it is significant. As you mentioned there was a quite a height as they hadn't spoken the two leaders for seven months and this book for ninety minutes yesterday which include interpretation that that's forty five minutes of substantive discussion so it's meaningful in the sense that it's important. The leaders of these two countries communicate and talk and try to find areas that they can cooperate and work together. And that's what joe biden has been trying to. Do i think so whether this results in a ratcheting down of tension. I think remains to be seen. But it's certainly a step in the right direction

The Ride of Sybil Ludington

"Night in question that gave civil place in history was on april. Twenty six seventeen seven civil had just turned sixteen years old on the evening. In question a writer came to their home to tell her father that the british had attacked and burn the town of danbury connecticut. The ludington house was located just south of connecticut. Along the coast from long island british. General william tyron had come to destroy the arms and ammunition stockpiles with over two thousand men. Curdle ellington had to assemble the four hundred militiamen in the county to defend themselves from the british. The problem was the militia had been disbanded for the winter and hadn't yet reassembled. The record is in clear on what happened next either. Civil volunteered or her father asked her but either way. Civil set out to warn the residents of nearby towns and to assemble the militia. She supposedly grabbed a stick and set up with her horse at nine pm with their sticks. She prided the horse and used it to knock on the doors. Of all the houses she stopped at all evening. She wrote around putnam county warning the citizens and calling the militia to assemble all night long. She called out. The british are burning. Danbury through the darkness of night she wrote a forty miles or sixty four kilometers. She took a circular route through the county visiting the towns of carmel mayo pack. Ken cliffs and farmers mill before returning. Home herreid wasn't just long. It was dangerous now. Not only were there loyalists in the region but there were british troops and a local group of outlaws known as skinner's plus. It rained that night and she had to do most of the rides soaking wet when she got back home in the morning. She was exhausted and soaked but she had done her job. The militia was assembled and they were able to drive general tyron back to long island. Sound civil was congratulated by our neighbors and supposedly by george washington himself just as a point of comparison. Symbols ride was three times longer than paul. Reveres she did it in the rain and she did it during the war. When there were actual enemies about paul veers ride was done just before the war started and there wasn't any danger from the british yet.

"And there is really a fantastic book that's been out. It's called First Friends by Gary Ginsburg. Who's got quite a pedigree himself. Gary, How are you, sir? Very well, Thank you for having me Well, it's a fantastic book. And, uh, unfortunately, like every other Interview. There's only so much time, so let's jump right in these first friends that have an enormous influence on the president on an administration. Chapter one talks about Jefferson and Madison. Now, this audience is quite familiar with Jefferson and Madison. But Madison Was very, very close to Jefferson. I'm not sure how how much people know about that. Tell us Well, I certainly didn't. I knew they were great collaborators. But what I learned in writing this book is that they were also best friends, and they were best friends for 50 years from 17 76. So when Jefferson died on July 4th 18 26, and what I found fascinating is that they're 50 EUR 50 year relationship with deep it was emotional. It could veer between the serious like whether we needed a bill of rights to the deeply personal, For example, when Jefferson tried to help Madison overcome being jilted by a 15 year old when he was 32 years old, and they were complete opposites as I write, Jefferson was this tall, dashing Huge personality. Madison was five ft four and quite reserved, but it worked in combination and I think it's because Jefferson needed Madison's exacting mind and practical nature. As much as Madison needed Jefferson's bold ideas in large personality, and I think in my book, and I think in American history, it's probably the single most powerful friendship in the history of America.

I called up to explain. This is martin's veer line at mit. And what. i find hilarious pout. Martin is he said when it comes to his own kid. He actually prefers to keep this particular science lesson. Pretty simple to my son. I'm like oh yeah you the gas liquid solid bam. Leave it at that you know. He's seven and states of matter is really just a way to describe how a group of particles think atoms or molecules etc move which is sort of beautiful and collective and different from what you would guess by looking just at a single particle and changes in temperature and pressure can cause those particles to move differently and change their behavior right. We see the super easily with water. That's right in the liquid phase water molecules slip and slide past each other but we humans quickly learned that if you lower the temperature the particles slowdown bam. We see is appear and we build bridges. And we're very excited about that. Actually that was a huge deal hundred years ago to make ice and if we go in the opposite direction heat water up. The particles move faster and farther apart and eventually the h. Two molecules breakaway and dissipate into the air as water vapor aka humidity. That's right it is already a miracle in itself like that. Water exists in these three different states. And that we can see those states at temperatures that we can reach as humans in the kitchen. But here's the thing. We can only do so much in our kitchen speakers there. But there's a limited range of temperature and pressure that even you can achieve in your kitchen mattie and there are states of matter beyond

Examining Ageism in Poker

"Have discussed many times. How there is sort of an ageism poker pretty as it pertains to marketing poker. It strikes me that older ambassadors would help to attract notre demographic who have a bit of money and it would also be very good role modeling for the younger players in the game. Do you agree. Yeah recompete the. I think it is one of those situations that it is the way it is just because it is the way that is. There's a famous story about a an efficiency expert. Who was brought in to try and make the the french rail system more efficient. Which you know. That's a tough ask star. But but he came in and he found that there was there. Was this one train. Which left from paris with north then veered east then went west and then eventually started going down to where it was actually supposed to go and he. He asked various people. What wise does the rouge like. There's a more direct route and nobody could expand it to him. He eventually found timer. Who said oh my god. Are we still doing that. We used to do that. During the war. To confuse the germans and i think in poker what happened. Is that the start. They just decided who's gonna play online poker. It's going to be all young people. And it's going to be mostly guys. So the the the ambassadors need to be young guys and and that's just sort of just continued because it starts the status quo right now. The number sorta stood back in toll while high on a minute. Who actually what you need to play online poker. You need free time and you need a bit of money. Which demographic typically has the music industry has figured this out like they marketable to an older audience. Because they know that they are they tend to consume more am of certain types of music than than younger people but the poker industry just never seemed took the got the message on this Which is quite staggering. And then the other issue is that like the kind of things that attract young people to the game on attract. Older people are different. Young people are primarily interested in the glamour. Can i make a lotta money etc. Older people are more worried about with my money.

I knew you had another one. I wanted to make sure I got that right. Yeah yes me. I know how that goes with. The developing a new thing for online stuff goes through many iterations so many rights like it's a constant chaos. But you just you start to love the chaos. There you go. It's beautiful. It's beautiful okay. So let's talk a little bit about you now. So you are an audiologist. If I said all right and and now you've got your new podcast going on but let's talk a little bit about how you got there because You know I think it's kind of fascinating talk about your stories you know. Sure absolutely. And how how you got onto this path. So when did you when did you start formulating this plan to become this this Dr Thomas Doctor Tom? Alright so it goes back to college. I started my undergraduate degree in two thousand six and you know it was like most college students you get to school. And you're like what am I GONNA do? Yeah we're am I starting out you know right and I had a talk with You know a close family member and they said you know. Listen if you're not sure what you WANNA do. It's really good to just get started in business because you can do so many different things so and if you're GONNA get started in business you should try accounting Because it's really it's really the principles of so many things you'll know understand the the Language of money. Okay so I said Okay. Let me check it out. It was kind. I was very impressed about the time. And you know it's it's nothing about you know if it's it works for some person but it doesn't always work for the other person you know sure but I said let me let me try it out so I went through two years of Undergrad and had some classes and took some business classes and I remember. It was my freshman year my junior year No actually I'm sorry it was. It was the end of my sophomore year. I remember sitting there in like my second your of accounting or the second class you know as it progressed. And I think we're talking about like managerial accounting. Forget what you know but it was one of those classes if where it was. I'm sure all good well very interesting information but I just started kinda like drifting you know. Okay yes I've been in those classes. Just yeah it was the mind was drifting and I was like I remember. I had a psychopath any moment where I just sat down like Whoa. This isn't for me. I'm like disc- I I just kind of snap out of it and I literally got up out of the class and I left the class while and at the time I was actually continued working for a while but at the time I was working at a bank and was Actually I was the record. Retention Coordinator What I what that was really was. Just you know I'd help Coordinate moving records around the bank teller or somebody needed records. I would help them You know coordinate that so whatever. It was a great job while while I was in college it was very flexible and I remember going to work the next day before my classes because again I was very they've they worked on my schedule. I remember just jumping on line. It was funny. I'm at work looking at you looking for jobs researching things okay and I've done of course. Yeah and I'm like I'm thinking about I'm like all right. I got A. I got a Mug on my next accounting class. I got to rework this. I got to think about you know a new direction. Because it's it's not working for me at least for me. I just don't feel right. You know I was having panic attacks and like my marketing class Yeah you had that numbering feeling like give me the hell Outta here. What's going on yet? I've been yes. Yeah totally relate. You know what I'm thinking of like my student loans. You know. Everything's adding up all right. Let me make a decision quickly so I don't go down too far now the wrong path. So I'm like what do I love what I love doing? You know I love playing music. I've always played drums. I play guitar through High School. That's cool and yeah and and So I I love helping people to and I and I've always had like an interest in jumping into something in the medical field but I wasn't really sure how so what I came across through my research online was like it was the field of speech. Language pathology right okay. And that's yeah that's helping people with speech disorders. So I said this is great. I love singing. I love music. It's helping people with their voice. It's it's the medical industry. It's IT'S IT. Seems like the perfect fit for me. So that's where. I went right to my junior year. I jumped into speech. Language Pathology and through that you know long story short. I had to take some more technology courses. Okay and I uncovered that I had a hearing very little slight a slight high frequency hearing loss as we call it. Yeah from all the music that I played throughout the years. Okay and I was like I really liked about audiology and I think it's a guy thing too. It's just very concrete right. I think guys like things very concrete so what I was able to do is understand the class at all the classes. Everything just made sense to me. And that's how I knew. This is this is it. I want to be an audiologist. I WANNA help diagnose identify hearing loss diagnose. Treat it and help people recruiting recuperate. They're hearing in terms of so they can be better communicators with their family and their loved ones. You know in the friends and I thought this is great. And that's where I you know. I took down the path of being audiologist. That's pretty fascinating. Because I was about to say wait a minute. Wait a minute speech. Speech pathology is something different right because you would have been. You would've if you have gone down that path you would have been helping like kids in schools kids in schools also You know because I did take a lot. Of Actual Undergrad. Degree is in speech. A speech language pathology so I had to do a lot of observation errors and You Know I. I watched a lot of stroke victims. That we're getting right right. It's called F Asian Languages Asia. And I would watch them. Get their language rehabilitated. One incredible story. There's a gentleman. He had spoken seven languages before his stroke while seven line which yeah like very well traveled. Just an incredible guy. I think he was even a professor had a severe stroke and he could barely speak English. It was it was really. It was heartbreaking. You know but he was. He come in every week to his class and he was so determined. You know to start working through it and you would have this book with him that he would just basically. It had like his thoughts written down on paper so because you know so his thoughts were so jumbled from the F. Asia right that he would have to use this book to kind of as he was talking to depth speak to S. L. P. As we put it he'd have to point and you use different phrases from the book and that's how he was able to get through his thought so it was really interesting watching that but with sap it's very difficult At least for me because it's it's it's very open ended. It's hard to see someone go through the results Where I found with audiology is much more concrete and tracking identify hearing loss. You treat it with hearing aids and you rehabilitate them and get them Hearing better right right okay. Yeah the interesting story. Yeah I met my fiance Because I had to basically take language when I switched when I was in business. I didn't have to take a language. Okay and when I switched I met my fiancee she We met in Spanish class. And you know we were like. Let's let's study for finals. So we We went down. We were studying for the finals and it was like we're just like let's just talk. You know we didn't even get into the study shows right. Yeah so she's like. So what are you going to school for and this was? This was my junior year. I already made the concrete decision in my head that I was going to be an audiologist. Okay the county's out the window the SAP was out the window. And I'm like oh I'm going to be an audiologist I'm GONNA help people rehabilitate their hearing and she goes get out of here. My parents are deaf. Why and that's yes. Here's later you know. We have an incredible relationship. Yeah I'm so understanding of that side of her family you know and we're very You know it's just a wonderful relationship and it was just amazing out. I made that turn that pivot my life and that's where it led me down that road. Wow that was like three big veers really grooming down the road of accounting and then you go This is making my brain. Okay I gotta find something else and then you've got a little bit closer with the pay. This speech language pathology but then you've really found the thing that made you hurt saying basically with the G. right absolutely. Yeah this is. This is interesting because the last time we talked. I think it was after the show. I told you that I wanna say like maybe somewhere around two thousand four two thousand five. I started noticing this sort of like little like hearing thing with me right and you diagnosed it like in three seconds or something because I thought it was. Maybe like tonight this but then you said but then you don't hear any ringing so it's not that and I'm like okay. Yeah you're probably right and then so my thing was was I don't hear I can't understand speech well with interference and you said that was a sounded like something like what you have to you said Quincy hearing frequency hearing loss. Yeah and it's very common just as we go throughout life all different factors can go into it you know you. Can't you put two people in the same room same age and one person will have the hearing loss one? Won't you can put them where they both went to like clubs their whole life at thirty years right and like you or they're both drummers. Like Lars from METALLICA and one guy one guy had hearing loss and the other yeah great man and the other one didn't so yeah Yes so definitely. Having a high frequency.

"I think the just came. I didn't think it was going to happen. I kind of saw happening my retirement to be honest with you all right so now. What were you living in Italy? Then or were y'All York. Paul was going back and forth pretty much like once a month a lot of times just to like oversee construction and renovation. Just because there's a lot going on okay. L. Both being. He's also an advertising right both both being advertising. We saw this as a brand. It's not just a home. It's also going to be a brand. We're going to like create kind of a you know the story. The that's what it's GonNa be Russell but again to me. It was much more in the future like my life was still roaming this. Bruma right Rome Rome. Yeah I thought this great job I mean like I tell you the job with Rachel Ray and taste of home. Love that job. I mean I had so much fun. My Co workers were amazing. My bosses were amazing. They were just so nice they were so easy like and I took a huge pay cut but I got to go home at five o'clock at night. How refreshing yes. It was like I was like wow. I can have a wife. This is prison. It was great like you might. You might be making more money doing other stuff enjoying life and that was kind of my turning point in my head to like. Oh like I can enjoy life like why am I killing myself trying to make a living with his struggling in advertising when we can do that so that kind of started click a little bit more A little bit long story short being in that that job that I loved they basically outsource my entire department so they called assaults might yeah to my boss's office like okay so I was able to get you one month after month leaving. So it's kind of like okay. I love this job so you didn't see that coming. No no that was a total. That was kind of a fish kind of that. You nature yea seek him now and so it was one of those. In Paul's business was not he he owned. Naji adding see called the ADS store. He did a lot of actually he did a lot. More famous C.'s month more famous. May He did Go Daddy famous. it all those ads in the courtroom. The that's one of the courtroom that's the only did the super bowl and took them from number three to number one overnight literally overnight Yeah couple of domains there. Yeah it worked. Yeah good job. Lots of great stuff by basically you know it. Was You know? The economy wasn't doing great so advertising is the first thing everybody cuts and we're both just like. We both Kinda came to this realization. Like why are we killing ourselves to live here and I need? That's again. That came back that morning. I asking ourselves that question now. Exactly yeah just so. Damn expensive yeah. That's what New York wasn't it was like we're not. We weren't enjoying New York anymore. Because you basically you had to. You Waked up. Lake woke up woke up winter rental came home. A dinner went to bed. I mean you weren't necessarily you weren't living out here just a New York like going out to the theater. You aren't going out to restaurants because you couldn't. It was just crazy. The expanded got so expensive. And it's got to be. I think we just after a while. We just said what are we doing like screw this. We have a house in your way. It's not necessarily. It was getting to be where we had just started ranting and out and that's basically whether that was the business we started with this with Brunell rented out to travelers and we also make and sell Italian products in the US so we basically said screw it. Let's just leave New York and go make a little bit in early so that was a definite like. That's a huge beer. Yeah Yeah Boom Boom Veer. Wow so how's that? Did that happen to happen? In Two thousand and two thousand twelve January two thousand twelve finished actually shooting a reality. Tv show of all things basically. Yeah we we were on. Amc's the pitch. If anybody ever wants to watch I think I tunes Episode two and five. I believe really good episodes really really well done show and I wouldn't change it for anything. It was a fun show to do. So we're on it as sort of like behind the scenes or you. Oh you were pitching. The whole concept is to agencies pitch for piece of business and they follow the two agencies throughout the process right. Yeah the first one. You've if you chance watch number watch. I think it's episode two it's Waste Management such a good John. I tunes I can link to it I think. Oh yeah the story Yeah No. It's I mean that story is great in. I think I think it was episode five which was for an friend. Jellicoe and that basically I you your. You know the story we moved here. So yeah it kind of gives you the story like but basically they actually almost in to the episode with US moving here. It was actually almost. Yeah so it's kind of weird because actually one of my old bosses like email me. He was like you didn't really move to Italy did you. I'm like yeah. That's a reality show. I remember we really but it was so it's Benfleet change but it's been amazing change so hold. The pace of life in Italy is a lot different. Yes but it almost kind of has come full circle for me. Interestingly enough because I grew up again when that small town Ratto for me I our town here. I think it's fifteen thousand people the nearest town. We live out in the country by Higley so to meet still very much a small small town mentality and it has that is very feel as a very family oriented. It's all that stuff so it. Kinda has come full circle to some degree and I've gone home in Italy. Exactly that's a great metaphor. Well you know. And that's actually when I think about where I live in southern California is I am basically on the I live in greater L. A. It's a city called Turin's for familiar with the area. No well yeah. Here's the thing there's like a bunch of different crowds but they're the Hollywood crowd of La doesn't knows absolutely nothing about torrents torrens may as well be La County. I'm Orange County right or you know San Diego or something. Because they don't know where it is and you know so and it's funny because this is something. I didn't know because growing up in a small town you just think like big city. People are different in their cosmopolitan. And you know they get around and they you know they know things I don't know and and they just grow up that way right. Yeah Yeah it's not true. It's not it's not true. It's not true because I don't know if this is true about all cities but in la because of the traffic everybody stays where they are. Yeah they don't leave their little radius. Yeah so in New York same way that neighborhood wise December we wouldn't that people would always joke like we would not go below twenty third street no above twenty third straight or below fourteenth street. We lived we lived in Chelsea and it was like that was our Chelsea was our neighborhood. We went to eat restaurants right there. We my gym was right there. The Barbara I mean I I mean I left to go to work. Which is the different with midtown right but but as far as like your life and fun will write that if somebody asked us for a party to like the lower side or west side. No my God it's like going to the moon or something. Exactly it's crazy it's true. Yeah the thing is I learned all of this for awhile because last year for several months I was driving for one of Uber's competitors lift L. Y. F. T. so I I got a really good education about all the different neighborhoods in in La. I I spent a Lotta time in Hollywood north. Hollywood Santa Monica. A downtown in all of its Fun Little Scary. I love how John to downtown early downtown. La Is is weird. I'm cool with. I'm coup within as long as I don't have to get on the on the one ten if I can just stand the surface streets then I'm happy but as soon as I get on the one ten then it's like I am. I want to go home. It's all your kid me out. I used to. I used to go. We used to go to La. All the time for work. And I used to. I I was the one thing I was like. Okay I can never live here. The traffic we have a call time six in the morning so we'd have to leave. It like warnings right. It's like what and if you leave at four the thing is you'd be there at five but now you have absolutely no choice but to do that because if you left at four fifteen you'd be there at nine exactly. You're just sitting in traffic. Which way put.

"Learn guys yolly going. Welcome to the show. It's gone great. Jeff thanks for having me. You sound so amazing thank you. You've updated your gear over there. Yeah you'RE GONNA LOVE MY SETUP. You're doing your own podcast. That's why okay it's cool interview or chat with other podcasters because generally speaking they have better gear and I'm a little bit of Attack Geek. So I I like this stuff is fun for me so I I already have ideas of of what I want next. Actually just had a geek epiphany right before I sat down started to talk to you. Because I have my mixer all jerry rigged where I had a wire running from the headphone Jack. Microphone into one of the inputs mixer and weren't great right but for whatever reason that setup had like this tiny little annoying buzz that I spent hours and hours and hours in post trying to eliminate man. That's the worst when you just get that one. Little thing is so in between for the last thirty minutes before the show. I started messing around with this other idea. And I got it to work without that Jerry Rig so now this this is the first show. I'm experimenting and I'm not hearing that annoying buzz awesome and I'm glad you were able to put it back together in thirty minutes. It's always the tests right there. Exactly there you go I was just you know just playing around until it works. Sometimes geeking out pays off absolutely okay so we talked a little bit about rooming and veering so Rooming for those who haven't figured it out yet is like Life on autopilot. I'm sure you've been there before or groundhog day. Or you know in. A positive vein. It's just like you're happy flow right but the key difference is is. You're not really super conscious. Your awareness is Kinda like head down focused. Let's get done. Yes and we all have these periods in our lives and then something happens to kind of wake us up right so. Let's talk about some of your rooming and veering starting in your college days so before you get into the beard tell us a little bit about what your room period was like before the big college veer absolutely. Well I think I would. I would start actually in highschool. I think high school was my room. I was very academic. I was an AP courses You know really like you just said had my head down working hard had those Extracurriculars in the mix as well. I was kind of that that student who was always at the top of her class. And I you know I I worked hard to get there and to stay there and so there was no time to look up and think about what I wanted and then as I went to college I I was applying and I knew it was the wrong thing for me. Which when you are that profile student. I think a lot of people look at you as like while you're going to go to you know the whatever the Berkeleys and the Harvard's of the world and there was that expectation but it didn't feel authentic to me and I had actually expressed that to my parents and they. They are very generous people but they and they had offered to pay for my college but they sort of held it over my head that if I didn't go right away. That offer was off the table. So it was sort of you. Have this for my perspective a Free College degree or you can go down this unknown path and to be fair. I was I was scared to let go of the certainty of that piece of paper. And we'll get to what I do. Now it's kind of ironic that this was my kind of Split. This was my fear because my parents did. Say also generously. Hey you know you worked really hard. You can get a degree in whatever you want. So I chose my passion at the time which was theater and so I went to nyu again. That kind of NAM name brand school and I got a degree in something I was passionate about and so that was very different for me. You know all through high school had been surrounded by these students who were who were very academic and very very focus And then I had to New York and I'm with a bunch of actors. I'm a very small fish in a very big pond and it was unsettling. I think that's the first time in my life. I have not felt comfortable and confident with what I was doing. I was doing well if you look at the metrics but it was an unsettling experience to say the least so you know head down working hard broom broom and then all of a sudden. I'm in this completely new world you know southern California girl all of a sudden in New York City and I had to. I had to grow up pretty quickly because I didn't have very many people I could rely on there. So this this have you ever watched the TV show shameless on HBO. I have not Ha Get it is really good. It's good because it's sort of like it's about these people in Chicago. It's like a family and their in Chicago. The Dad is a total drunk and really really a bad guy. Okay but you'll love him anyway. So it's sort of like drama right. Where every season? It starts off as like goofing on the whole absurdity of the situation right and they'll take you on this sort of starts in the middle where everything's happy and funny and then somewhere in the middle ish everything just falls the hell and it's like really seriously low and you're like I believe I'm watching this but you know that they're gonNA pick you up and take you back out of the whole but anyway this season one of the kids. One of the teenage sons was like a genius in high school right in Chicago. But you know in the projects you know in inner city schools. So he's really a genius but everything was always easy for him and when and in spite of everything you know everybody's trying to help them trying to give them a leg up and he's just like skirring everything out and finally he gets a enough people to say wake up idiot go to school and he gets a full ride scholarship right but he goes through what you did. He had the same beer. You know now. Everybody is smarter than him not well. That's not true. They're not necessarily smarter than him. But it's like they're more dedicated and they've had to work harder where everything was easy for him before and he was just sort of like it was easy for him to show up and take a test and get an. He was acing everything with like minimal effort. Where here it's like. He's got a job he's gotta do work study and he's just can't keep up and so he has to ramp up his level of effort. It's just like what you were saying. That the the little fish in the big pot. Yeah that's perfect. So what was it like? I mean was it a time. Management Challenge was just an overall overwhelm describe. I think it was something. I didn't realize it at the time but the thing that that caused me to feel so unsettled about it is something that came up later. First of all I wasn't with my people actors as much as I value their talent and and really love a lot of people who are actors and back. Some of my best friends are as a community it. It's not it doesn't fit me in necessarily leg. I had I had gallois time. Look at me I said okay. You know it was after rehearsal. I was like okay. I've got to go home and do my reading for my class tomorrow. And she looked at me she goes. Oh my gosh you actually read E Yeah my parents are plunking down five figures to get me through this you every every year to get me through this. You better believe I'm GONNA do the studying. I have to do to get the grades and it's just that mentality It wasn't everyone but it was more pervasive. I would say yes. Oh you know it was. It was definitely a disconnect from that community and then on top of it I was so used to working hard and working hard met you get you get a certain pay off you get the grade. You work hard enough. You can get the grade well with acting. What if your teacher doesn't like the way you delivered that line? It was a choice you made. But it doesn't mean that they're right it just means it was the difference of opinion. Yes so there was this challenge of. Hey like your. This was my interpretation. This was a choice. I wasn't slacking off in the work but could still not get a good grade or not. Please my teachers or you know and it was just. It was a struggle. It was it was kind of A. Are you being authentic to your Lauren as an actress? Or are you supposed to mimic what this person is telling you to do? Even though from an acting standpoint you disagree and technically. They're not your director. They are your teacher. They're supposed to facilitate your learning journey so I couldn't have articulated it at that point. I knew I was miserable after the fact sort of thing. Yeah you've got a little perspective on it. After the fact yeah absolutely sure sure. Yeah so so that veer was. It was a long long long hair. Because I don't enough then it's it becomes a right. Yes yeah get into this sort of like adapt. You have to adapt mode and that is like a long term veer. You're kind of you're ramping. Yourself up to meet the needs of a new environment absolutely I. You know I hadn't thought of it that way but there there were. There was years that I was sort of in this. I'm uncomfortable in my own skin place and we've also it was awful. We have all lived there absolutely. That's like the worst. Though right I can. Yeah Funny Story about that. Yeah and this this is gonNA sound a little horrible maybe I'll it anyway. All right So I was in the air force and I you know I had a love hate relief relationship with the air force but towards the end where was I I was here. Yeah I've been here. We too long but anyway I had to take a trip from La to somewhere in the desert Arizona or something like that because one of my troops was graduating from school. And and I was his boss so I had to go. That's just what you do right. Yeah and it was cool but then I found out that my buddy a who was another guy that was like two ranks ahead of me or one rank ahead of me but like He was like like one of the Ranki type of people on the base. But also a Harley Guy who liked beer so definitely. My people had no problem hanging out with this guy. We had already hung out so I was like this guy is here and then the number one enlisted guy for the base. It's also his job to go to right and not a bad guy. Okay just not somebody I would want to hang out with my social and now I'm Kinda stuck with them because we're all from the same base and they're like oh you're going to. Let's share a car. I'm like Oh okay right so anyway. Long Story Short where out and we're in our service dress. It's kind of like the Tuxedo of of being in a military uniform right and and they're like well. What do you guys want to do now? And I'm like well whatever we do. Let's go and change out of our monkey suits first and then we can hang out right and that just came out of my mouth right and and the guy that. I like you know you know..

Her or as Chris would say in the twitter's he is at Chris. Brogan big surprise without further ado my chat with Chris Brogan Rogan. Hello Hello Chris Brogan and welcome to the show. Thank you so much for being here. I feel so show horrific. Jake you sure epic all right. We're starting it off right okay. So the name of the show is room room veer and we're in it right now so broom. Broom represents like life on autopilot sleepwalking. And then Aveer is something in life that happens to you that makes you wake up. Yep So hopefully I can get one of those stories out of you and if not that's okay we'll move on which now just in general general do you want me to talk about veering or grooming or a little bit of both. I like the space in between so you can talk a little bit about a story. That's particularly about Ah veer in your life. And then sort of generalize around the firm room stuff but really hit on the fear. That's generally how I do it. Does that make sense. Sure okay may have. You might have to keep steering me out. No it's heaven for me too so I have every belief that I'm just GONNA keep veering into Bush's during this whole conversation. That would be great. I would take eight year old to the go-carts for the first time. And they're so a wound up and so excited that they're driving vehicle with an engine that they just keep smashing it into the wall and thinks that would be me. I would say I would say you know. It's it's really funny is that there's that quote like the John Lennon says in. Nobody told me where he says. Life's what happens when you're busy making plans. I really feel like a whole whole lot of my life is like that. I mean when you talk about I think a whole chunk of my life is veering because I think every single time. I think I've got a plan and I think I'm going to go on some kind of direction. You you know is just GonNa University. That's right I've never say I bet you smart and that's the end of the game. You no I just I think you know being a Buddhist. I think that you know life. Is this whole repeating lesson basically. You are right here right now. Yes I'm right here here maybe a whole you know. That's where I am talk a little bit about How you got to be a Buddhist? That would be great with me because I'm a big fan of Pemba children and I. Oh yeah I read her book. GETTING UNSTUCK UNSTUCK. I don't know if you're familiar with that one or not I need oh great. I love her. I love that book. So when did you become a Buddhist shortly after hanging hanging out with children quite literally. So here's another story goes so my I was in another relationship. I was married My whole life was coming coming apart at the seams and I went from that right into girlfriend when that probably was the next. Best Idea But you know life again. Dan Doesn't wait around and Mike Caso. I suddenly my girlfriend and I are like well. Let's go see a pebble children because I showed her some books by Julian. Smith said to to me. Hey Seth Godin says she read children and he goes. Somehow I thought you should check it out and I was like okay so we read a bunch of books my girlfriend and I and she said Hey pam is gonNA come to Halifax Nova Scotia. You should go and I was like yeah. Sure whatever and I said yes and that means not really but she she took his. Yeah so she's like great. I bought the tickets and I was like. Oh Okay so all by the airplane and whatever and so you know we we go up to see this whole week of Shambala Buddhist which has children and also the Sakyamuni Palm who is the spiritual head of the Shambala Buddhist Kinda like Peres boss even though you tactically right right so we go there and the experience is we're standing in the very far back of this huge building in Halifax Nova Go. That's like you know like a convention center kind of thing Jack and I say let's her name Jacqueline. Let's just hide in the back of the room in case we have to leave because this could really suck and and you know meeting or something. Yeah right she's like yeah. Okay so as we're sitting there like there's this procession and there's all this stuff and there's tons of people and whatever and jackets looks looks behind her. Just a tiny bit goes. Oh my gosh. There's children like right there. And she's I don't know fifteen feet away Jack says I'm GonNa go say hi. I'm like you can't go say say hi like she's ahead of Smith's she being like you know there's an event here it's not like meet and greet or something she was. I don't care I'm just going to attack. She walks over the next thing I know. They're they're hugging. There's tears like they're just happy with each other and all this in like. Wow you just like just sweetie with children so some time passes in this event. It's like a week along event but now every time we go into the room like we just happened to me sort of where we started the week out but Peres also rate. They're also always talking to my girlfriend now so the I really mean hanging out with Pama except I'm not it's just my girl so at the end of this whole thing like a whole week of this thing goes by and the sok-yong says something probably with a a lot more ceremony to this but he basically says hey if anyone kind of feels like being a Buddhist just get in this really super long line that you don't want to be in and I'll tap you on both shoulders of the Pencil and your Buddhist and Jacqueline and I was like okay so in this sign up. Sounds like yeah no. Yeah really that hard. I mean like I name and email address wasn't even asked for and you know we go to the line. We wait in line horrendously long amount of time but of course we're jazzed up on like how awesome this all is and He literally like taps on the shoulder with something. I think that's probably not a pencil. The looks like one and tied a little blue thread to be like Like a balloon without the without the balloon part and I'm a Buddhist so so I go and I read it and all that I try to decide to go to the Buddhist Shambolic Center in Boston. which is one of the better ones by the way and it just kind of has this weird feeling of like I don't know hanging out with the rolling stones and then you know going to the School of rock where you see the guys who tried to teach you how to be late the rolling stones and I was just like so I'm a Buddhist is but I more or less just practiced by myself? I just do a lot of meditating. A lot of breathing and a lot of reading and books and that's China's in. Yeah so that's it. That's a really easy sign up. I could do that. You know. I'm always tentative to sign up to those sorts of things because I don't like meetings and I've never been like a group kind of clube person so but I think I could sign up for that. It sounds like it's very low threshold involvement for belong to that group. You can go there era. You could go to the Boston thing. And you can try to like there's levels and things that you can try to aspire to and all that and it just sort of dungeons and dragons couty ooh badge meditating. All I thought was all of that didn't sound very fund so all I do is just kind of practice. And it's more a philosophy feed the religion is not like you have to be Christian and you could be a Buddhist you can whatever but what I like about. It is essentially a lot to do with acceptance and I think that that's the power play Klay is just really staying strong to this notion that they appreciate you more or less. Just say I accept I accept I accept in this kind of deal. Yeah yeah that. That's that's kind of what I've got out of when I was looking at patrons stuff it's like whatever shows up. That's what's supposed to show up. And and she says in her books and inner little audio files you can get everything she always says she's a crappy tater after thirty plus years so I thought wow the bars I hi. This is exactly yeah. I mean if she's been doing it for this long and still thinks she's not good at it than anybody can do it right. That's what I anything. Yeah that's what I think too so I'm going to shift gears here because I I saw you last year at podcast movement and this is sort of you made lead you got up there on stage and it was an awesome presentation. But one of your points. Was You want to run your life at forty percent right and this was kind of counter Downer to a lot of what was going on A lot of the drumbeat of the entrepreneurial style podcast was. You know if you have to burn really hard in the beginning you should do that. So let's talk a little bit about that can you. Do you think. Somebody's starting their own GIG. Doing their own thing can can. What do you what you're doing at run? Their life at about a nice steady hum forty percent and still get business off the ground I do i. I think that you know the the one. I don't know the one really. Tricky part. Along the way I guess is that there's a so a lot of times the reason people are working so damn hard as they don't really know what they're supposed to be doing so you just kind of running around crazy like need some dollars and I Yeah and I'm I'm okay with that and I can't really help you replace that right away because really what I started to figure out is that business is about belonging and once you sort of figure out where you you feel like you belong versus where you try to fit in then stuff starts to get smarter quicker faster so you know. I serve a certain kind of person I serve. People that are trying their best to figure out how content might nurture community and then earned themselves the opportunity to build a marketplace. So that you know it doesn't fit a specific the demographic like I don't serve cheese so you're breaking. I don't like initially as a dividing line because I don't want to serve you know veterans. Who Happen to be writers who were in the first but not the second Gulf War? It's so confining as a yeah it's not gonNa work for me but I think that when you think more along the lines of where you feel like you belong like if I wanted to serve nerd culture you know people who think princess bride is one of the seven best movies on the planet would sign up for that. Yea I mean I can do that and I would know what they'd want and I know what their languages so you first start by just sort of identifying what that circle is where you think you can serve. Obviously the other next next piece of that. Say obviously who knows if it's obvious is that is it a kind of circle that would actually pay for things like. Is there money to be spent in that space. Most Times everything we do sort of has a money component. If we want it we're GONNA bicycling. You know we start with a two hundred dollar bike that we get at the store like Walmart or something but if we're gonNA do triathlon that we're up to like a three thousand dollar bike and really kind of looking at the ten thousand dollar by saying you know wonder.

"Hey Lama Kathy. Welcome to the show. Thank you for being here. Well thanks for having me are right. So let's get into this so you know a a little bit about my show. I hope but if you don't I'll go ahead and give you a little break down. So the name of the show is roomed room veer and the the idea there is that room room is sort of like Autopilot and I think you're familiar with that idea. And then aveer would be an awakening awakening and the lessons that we learned moving from grooming to veering so okay. Yeah Yeah and I think that your life story. has lots of rooming endearing in it. So let's get into it if we if you were to look at your for your life through the Lens of rooming and veering What was one of maybe like your first young person big awakenings in your life life? You know I can't say that I've had any thing that was particularly spectacular that to me in my life but I think that I had a childhood very much like anybody else's but for me. I think there were two things that really stood out in my in my childhood in one was my connection to nature through being a girl scout and going on girl scout trips into nature and really being impressed us by nature and then the other things the other things were really connected to my Catholic upbringing and going to church. So I would say that for me. I really got a lot out of being in nature and really being fascinated by the beauty of nature and I can't remember a specific moment in nature. Can't I mean I can't remember anything specific I in but in church I had a really great experience Going to church as a young person and I was especially touched by the experience. agreeance of first communion lots of Catholic girls and boys when they're six or seven Take their first communion and that was a big deal for me and and I really had a sense of the presence of Christ and that was a really great moment for me that sense that wow this is real you can really have a connection to something. That's beyond yourself so I guess you could say that my experience of nature and my experience of Church were I opening for me. That's did you grow up in the Mid West or somewhere in the east coast. I did I did. I grew up in the mid West In Ohio okay. I grew up in Michigan. So I can totally relate to your childhood because yeah. My parents took US camping every weekend. It seemed like like when we were little kids. So yeah I stomped around in the woods and really got into nature as a child to And then you know back in those days yeah. I'm forty six now so born in sixty nine and back in that day and especially in a small town in Michigan. My parents were kicking me out of the House all the time. Get out so we weren't really allowed to stay in the house. We were always constantly running around outside even when we're home so yes definitely only I feel very at home in nature and then I grew up in the Lutheran tradition. So so in that I call that Catholic light we had. We had Catholics. And Lutherans in town in Michigan so very similar similar also relate to you know what do they call it. They're not what they call them acolytes. That's like the shirt. The pastors assistant did that checkmark. That was a big deal so and then I also let's see here. Oh ooh my big thing. When I was a young kid was I had perfect attendance at Sunday school and I was really good at memorizing? You know so I was like the guy that would like the twenty third psalm. Yes I would just you know. Memorize everything right away. So anyway that came in that came in handy later when I got into acting acting in high school. But I digress. Okay so you and I. We had some very interesting beginnings and similar so nice. Cross point there and we'll go ahead and get the Ohio Michigan rivalry out of the way. Right away okay. Sure I know that idea et idea. Yeah I hold no grudges from anybody in Hawaii. Oh but every time it yeah. I've never been into the college sports thing so whenever I talked to somebody from Ohio they always like Oh Michigan. You're my rival. It's a IT'S A. It's an actually a conversation starter. Charter that a lot of people just used to tease each other. And once they finish teasing each other they actually now have a bond than it and it goes beyond. Yeah that exactly yeah. I've never actually met anybody from Ohio. That was serious about it. It was always just the fun side right so when you moved into your college days then I bet you had some sort of veer sort of situation. I understand you went to school and you studied. Journalism is that right And in fact a school was also pretty important to me I loved school and school was always a i. Guess you could say that was an eye opening experience. I enjoyed learning and especially the reading and literature was also a source of great Of I guess you could say eye opening for me because as I enjoyed literature and so when I Went to college. I had by that time already decided what I wanted to do and what I wanted to be. Not when I was six. I started writing stories about fictional children doing fun. Things like going to islands were animals could talk and so forth and so on that's And so I figured out pretty young that I wanted to be a writer and after high school. I've decided sided to go to whatever school would be could be cheaply attended by a midwestern kid with no appreciable fortune Orjan right and and so I went to Ohio State University where there was a good journalism program at and I really really enjoyed looking about interviewing and learning about writing and It was a great experience going to college but it was very stressful experience. And and by the time I was a senior in college I had pretty much exhausted myself. with all of the excitement social events else you could possibly imagine about college and I had gotten married when I was a sophomore. And so so I had the stresses of Being a young adult married trying to work and go to school and it was quite stressful. And at the same time I I had a decided I mean not really decided on to stop going to church but it had fallen by the wayside in the excitement to learn things things in college and have a new social life so call so college had pretty much ruined my church going and At that point I had add stress but nowhere to go with the stress so that was when I had a feeling of. I can't really call it desperation but it it was starting to feel like that feeling something into my life. I needed to put something into my life that would allow me to distress. And that's when I took a yoga. Of course my very first day in eastern spirituality that's great yeah and I can say that I think I've been doing yoga now. How pretty regularly brearley for like About a year two times a week and and now I'm hooked. I can't stop. Aw I think even when I'm feeling like I don't WanNa go I go anyway because I you know what I'm talking about right. I hear you know that there's the little voice you know. You could just sit on the couch and drink wine and watch. TV to assure that usually don't so good for me yeah Like there must be some sort of like a yoga background process. That's urging me to go right in my brain. If you do it long enough it it gets it gets cooked in a good way sure. Yeah Yeah Oh sure so. That was like your first. Foray foray into anything meditative. So is that kind of like was that sort of like the first seed that that got you moving towards the path of Buddhism. Yes I think From a practical point of view from a theoretical point of view like all Young a young teenagers or young preteens in the nineteen sixties. I was a fan of the Beatles and they practiced eastern spirituality and meditation and I thought that and I thought as Teenage Beatles Fan. I thought that was pretty cool stuff but of course I'm in Columbus Ohio at this point and have no way to learn meditation but it sounds like a really good idea and so I- formed the the wish to learn it but really there's nothing to be done for that so I just swint About my daily life and thought about it as being something cool. But I didn't get to actually do meditation until I was a senior in college and took my first yoga. Oh course okay all right great so now. At some point you got to meet a Tibetan Monk Muhannad that happened Oh sure again again When when a person is interested in spirituality they do a bit of a search yes? They looked for things. But when you're busy college students you. You don't really have a very large area to search and so I was pretty much just going to my yoga class where the teacher would say things like now. Close Your eyes and relax and imagine that you're walking on a beach and as as you walk on the beach you feel increasing Relaxed and then on the beach you meet a wise person in the wise person in parts of words of wisdom to you and a blessing and I remember thinking about that saying that is really cool. It really works How can I learn more? And so I read A lot of the new age authors of the day including Ramdas Laurent dos. Yeah and forced I famous classic be here now and and He also wrote a other books and one of the books. I was reading After College I worked for a weekly newspaper my first job after college and then I got a job. In April of nineteen seventy seven at a daily newspaper paper in a small town called Newark Ohio about thirty five to forty miles east of Columbus. And that was where I really Continued my search. Believe it or not. They actually have yoga classes in a little town. Life that we practiced yoga in An old railroad freight depot. which was about? Oh I don't know my guests. It was probably twenty by thirty. It was about the size a small mobile home you know and so when the trains would go by while we were doing our Austin as you know that the building which shake it was that kind of thing and And so I was reading a grist for the mill. His Ramda's book and in that book he has a chapter called lineage. The age in which he says. Well look folks. I gotTA confess to you. I created my own religion and I took one from column one from Columbine I mixed it all together and and I made my own faith and he said But this is not what I recommend to you readers to you readers. I recommend that you pursue a genuine lineage. Edged you find a genuine spiritual lineage that traces. Its history back to an enlightened being and that you then studied that lineage lineage to its conclusion so that you can attain the same result and I remember sitting in my car reading this waiting for a city council meeting because I was covering covering the city council at that time this would have been in the summer of a nineteen seventy seven and thinking. Wow Ramdas you really hit the nail on the head had. That's it now. How will I find a lineage? In Central Ohio genuinely latest so a few weeks after that There was a poster poster in my yoga place which was called the Yoga place and And it said that there was going to be a talk given by Tabet Buddhist monk and of course I said well. I've got to give this. I've got to give this a look and because I was a reporter I just call the a phone number on the poster and talk to the man and his wife who organized the visit and said could I interview the Llama for the newspaper and they said sure her and so.

I think is just, you know, if I could just be on somebody else's showing just show up and laugh. I think that would probably be more appropriate. Can I just say something for the record for the hosts out there listening? I don't think enough most laugh enough on their show. Is it just me? I'm well maybe you're just listened to the wrong show. You're absolutely right. I'm listening to the very serious category, right? Where we're nobody laughs. Yes. But it's good. It's good to know find a show, wherein folks, like me laugh a lot. I think it's important to listen to other people laughing because you can't stop. And I think it's. And I think it's important to laugh, and it's just great to know that you, I mean, this is a this is a very significant and legitimate show. But you add the element of fun and laughter to it, which I think is amazing. So I'm very happy to be here. If it's not fun. Why are people tuning in? That's my question. Right. Right. I mean, that's I don't I don't in the shows that I don't enjoy so anyway enough about me. Let's talk a little bit about Josh Kerry at the hidden entrepreneur at Josh. If every dot com. What are you most excited about over there in your business? It's, it's a great question because it almost took me took me by surprise. I came to the podcast world about a year ago, knowing that I would enjoy it so much. I would love it so much, but not really knowing exactly where it was going to lead me, which was having trust and faith that, you know what one step at a time, I'll do this. I'll keep my ISO in opportunity has to create itself in some regard. And let's go. So now less than a year later, I have over a hundred episodes of my show. I, which means also has, you know, a hundred plus incredible and extraordinary connections and potential opportunities where now what I'm most excited about, is, what started as a humble pad cast show of mine has really turned into the core of, of me of my being and really of my business. So I've been able to take every. Thing that I'm doing and have learned in how I'm doing it with my podcast, and I'm creating a program and what I do now is through one on one row Rams or group, I help hosts either new or established create the best interview ever and really nice and really that came from doing it over and over again. And on a somewhat regular basis really just hearing from the guests after the show saying, you know, I do a lot of podcasts. And this was like the best interview ever so after while I'm like, wow. Well, what am I what, what has accounted for that one of my bringing to the table? What's making that? So, so I've, I've, I've sort of you know documented that ought about it, and I'm putting that into a teachable format. So today what I do. And when a most excited about is this whole podcast nature that is very t. Trouble in that I can create and produce shows cut to a quick connection is I come from the acting and filmmaking world. I spent fifteen years in New York, pursuing that dream on. So I have that bug. Right. I read that desire. I have that capability, I love producing live events and right. And virtual events and those media, whether it's the article show of film or podcast. So I'm very excited today to be able to bring that into my business and into the world. That's pretty amazing. That sounds like fun sounds like you're being you. Which is happening. So rare so rare. So rare. So congratulations on all of that. Good job. Thank you. It is rare, right? It is. I'm now, you know, we can this is going to be part of the, the big discussion over the next hour or so that, that we talk about this real. You. That, you know, it's fascinating. But before we get into that stuff. Let's go back in time. This is room from Bayer. So we talk about the story, the, let's see here these superhero origin story, if you will, of the one Joshua Carey. So you grew up in New Jersey, talk about what it was like being little Josh in New Jersey. Oh my God. I don't think. Really? Where where else could little Josh have grown up if it wasn't in New Jersey, I, I happen to take great pride in my Garden State origins. And I'm back now in the Garden State. I love it. But I don't think many people took note of little Josh growing up in New Jersey, which was part of the issue. So to put it into perspective. I was I was actually this close. And, and I know you can't see me, but I'm holding my two fingers very closely together. Now I was this close. I, I was this close from two from being named Farah. Now. All my goodness. Wow. Yeah. Whole, you know spoiler alert. My name is Josh. My I was this close to being named Farah because, as the family story would have it. I've got I'm the youngest of three sons. So I got two older brothers, who six years older than me and nine years older than me. And yeah. And as the story. Goes mine mother really really wanted a daughter. Now another spoiler alert. She didn't get one bummer. Pay her? Right. But it was supposed you were supposed to be the girl, right? I understand. I, hey, been at the family events. You're supposed to be the girl Garnett. All right. But he's disappointed. Your mum mother at birth. Okay. Okay. Jeff, you're connecting the dots. My goodness. How disappointed my mother at birth? So she has her first son, you know, at twenty years old. And she thinks okay? It's early we can do this. There's a daughter in my future. She goes back in. They got another baby. It's another son. She's like, come on. Okay. It's still early enough. We can try again. And, you know, lo and behold, six years after that, I come out, but my father wasn't in the delivery room back in the day. Right. See who's out smoking cigarettes in the waiting room and and doing shots. So you're. Absolutely. Yes. It's like what you read my bio in theory. Like, yes, that's exactly what happened. You know, my father there you go. Yeah. So he's, he's now a recovered alcoholic, which, you know, an amazing person, but for much of my life, he wasn't around and all that story. So he's in the I guess, smoking cigarettes, isn't that what they did everywhere? So he's out in the, you know, out in the waiting room. My mom gives birth. They he doesn't know the gender the doctor comes out. He says, what do you have at home? Currently, he says, I got two boys and he says, well, congratulations. Now you gotta third. And my father's reaction was my mom's name is Elaine. My father's reaction was no lanes, elaine's, not going to be happy. Right. Right. So like you said disappointed from birth. It's like okay, fine. We gotta make do with this thing. This guy. This, this should be done, or jeez. Wow. Fell lot of pressure at birth. Rusher is real, Jeff. So I come into the world. That's the outcome of that. Now, I have an older brother like I said six years, and nine years older than me. They don't care about they don't want. Yeah. That's, that's a pretty big age gap. Yeah. And it felt like one. So I was left to my own to try to figure out. Okay. Well, hey guys. I'm new to this whole life experience. Somebody's show me. No, no. Nobody can show me the figure it out. Well, guess what? I can't figure it out. So I'm just going to I'm just going to, you know, feel bad for myself and take this as a defect her saly here and think that nobody wants me around. Nobody cares what I have to say. I mean I try to stick myself into conversations thinking you know what I'm pretty inciteful kid here. I got things to say nobody wanted to hear them. Now. My really really nobody wants to hear absolutely not. No. Let me ask you a question. Did that sort of like a scenario you said you were kind of like always trying to insert yourself where you kind of like the kind the kid that was like constantly like begging for attention, Jeff? Yes, in the book, you've apparently red of my biography. Good at this. Well, no to. I wasn't I, I was the youngest of three and I was very much the attention whore person get out. So. Yeah. So we had this, but people like like wanted to ask me on. They were like oh he's the entertaining kit. Right. So I was begging for launch in and they were like egg, they're like, dance Jeff dance monkey. Yeah. They were just ignoring me. Nobody wanted me to dance monkey dance. Stay. Okay. Instead of instead of you being the entertaining kid because I was seeking this attention. I was the annoying kid. Sure, how devastating why am I knowing? I'm just trying to survive here. All right. Fine. I'll, I'll retreat so that went on for a while. And then, you know you start to tell yourself these stories that become your truth because you define them as such and then you go out into the world and you attract and seek scenarios that validate that truth. And right. Borland bents and experiences are very happy to help you validate that truth that nobody wants me round. Nobody cares what I have to say. That's a myth, that in that inner script that you basically was written in there. Okay. Yeah. And then the inner struggle again, the inner struggle from day, one until year, forty which I spent Ohio the or two years in hiding. Okay. That's why I'm the hidden entrepreneur today, because I showed up in every every situation hiding all of my power all of my ability, because I thought, well, nobody cares. Nobody wants me around. I'm probably not good. He you're so I'll just I'll just play it small and be quiet. But the internal struggle was at home behind closed doors. I knew what I was capable of. And that created from very early through my, my, you know, decades of life year, that became very difficult to accept because I was angry. And frustrated knowing you know what? I'm I'm smart. I'm intelligent. I might even be brilliant at times. I think I'm funny. I'm. Really capable but I wasn't applying myself because I had to validate that story that I kept telling myself over and over again. Interesting now, this is, it's, it's fascinating to me, because I mean, I had a similar, but different sort of a childhood experience, like I said, and then, you know, I think where have you ever heard this idea that your truth is kind of like a superpower, but it's, it's, it's the thing that's going to get you through. It's the thing that you need to make your life, true and real and awesome. Okay. But it's also the scariest thing in the world. Right. And it's, it's it's equally a curse, and a blessing simultaneously. So I, I think you when you're programming with your childhood sort of, like may juicy the curse more than the blessing. Whereas, I think I came in with this pollyanna kind of like everything's going to be awesome. Don. I know which is like the same thing, but I saw the, the awesome instead of the curse until later on in life. And when I got into about my early twenties was when I saw the curse part okay where I'm loud, and annoying. And, and people want me to stop talking. Right. So then the family showed up, but it was the world. Okay. It was saying you're too loud. You're too. I don't know you, right? Shut the hell up. Be quiet and go shut up and go do what you're told, you know, and I was in the air force. Right. So when you're in the military, being different in weird, and strange and loud, and happy, all of these things manifest, the opposite. So that's pretty, pretty neat. How how parallel those two stories are you know what I'm talking about. Does that make sense when I'm saying right now? Yeah completely. It's amazing. I never really put it into into. That perspective that it's either a curse or last, they're both. It's the same thing, it's like a blur or sing. They're the same thing. It's just how are you looking at it truth is always the same thing, right? It's not. It's not too things. It's one thing with two sides. Right. And you can depending on how you view it that truth. It's either OMO or. Does that make any sense? Yeah. Yeah. Love that. Okay. So. Okay. So let's talk about what did you do say, like immediately after highschool? Great. So. Yeah. The. So I was we established the kind of person then now I'll double back, Heidi person. Right. Exactly. Right. One who right? I was already in hiding I was playing small thinking and attracting those scenarios and and really wore that label that I slapped on for myself nobody slapped that on for me. I wore that excuse me, with, with pride really and then found like I said, all the scenarios to support it, and everybody doesn't all situation and so, so summarize that script in your head just briefly something like shut up. Nobody cares. Be quiet. And if I'm not sloughed down, basically. Yeah. And really thankfully, I have no physical violence in my history. It was slapped down. Yes, exactly. Could have easily been but it wasn't. So it was I I'm not valuable, right?.
