"And that became the move. That became the thing that i tried to. Every story every show but it felt so hermetically sealed in some way a kept away from the messy -ness of the world. Yeah i guess like most stories aren't completely simplistic right. Yeah and i also was running into stories that challenged the idea. That science is the only way to know the world You know there were stories that i bumped into where people disagreed with the science or the truth that was in the room. At that moment you could express it scientifically but there was a much deeper truth hiding right behind that and so when i say i got tired of the wonder stuff. It wasn't that i didn't do that anymore. It's just that. I felt like that was actually a smaller piece of a larger mission. And so you made a change right like from stories that evoked. Aw two that were really all abou- conflict but you had a problem with that too. There was one episode. I think that kind of summed it up for you. Yeah i mean it was a it was an episode that I think this was twenty. Twelve We ended up investigating the idea that post vietnam. The soviet union used chemical weapons on the mon villagers in the mountains of laos. So is this really perilous moment and so we ended up speaking to a guy Who was there and claimed that chemical weapons had been used on him and his fellow villagers and a lot of people died and it was a horrible situation Problem was that some western scientists went there and measured to see if there were in fact chemical weapons being used didn't find any chemical weapons and then basically figured out. I should call it a theory. I guess that In fact what was being mistaken chemical weapons was Be poop pollen basically. That was the theory that was what the western scientists said macos. Robert crowe which was talking to this fellow asking him. Did you see the stuff. Did the source of the renew firsthand account for the fact that this came from planes. They're always a plane and then rain and the guy couldn't but he said i i know what the scientists say and they're wrong because i know what i experienced planning to speak to what i've seen in there is no inkling in my mind was chemicals that with our killing my people this went back and forth and back and forth for a long long while but he himself is not clear whether it's the beast stuff or whether this is a man to debate and then it just. The interview ended badly. The there's a sad lack of justice that that that the word of a man who survived this thing must be pitted against a professor from harvard. Who's read these accounts. I i can tell. Your uncle didn't see the bee pollen fall. Your uncle didn't see a plane all this hearsay which apollo had the awadh. Magnus went on bonanza. My uncle says For the last twenty years he didn't know that anything anybody was interested in the deaths among report. He agreed to do this interview. Because you were interested you know what happened to them among happened and what we know has been questioned again and again is not a surprise to him or to me. I think that. I think the interview is done fell horrible. Jad continues his story in his ted. Talk hammering at a scientific truth when someone has suffered. that wasn't gonna heal anything. And maybe i was relying too much on science to find the truth and it really did feel at that moment that there are a lot of truths in the room and we were only looking at one of them. It was one of those like ninety minute. Conversations at ended up getting edited down to three minutes and in those three minutes. Look like we believe the guy. And i feel like we kinda did to be honest. I don't think we did it right on a number of levels. I gotta get better at this so for the next eight years. I committed myself to doing stories where you heard truth collide. We did stories about politics of concern. You heard the perspective of survivors perpetrators whose narratives stories about rails. Black men are systematically eliminated from juries and yet the rules that try and prevent that happening only make things worse or he's about counterterrorism tournament detainees stories where everything is disputed. All you can do is struggle to try and make sense and the struggle kind of became the point. I began to think. Maybe that's my job to lead people to moments of struggle because truth is no longer just a set of facts to be captured become a process. It's gone from being a noun to being a verb increasingly in this confusing world. We need to be the bridge between those differences. How do you do that. How do you end that story. So jad you have smoke hicfa. Wny's along the way and your career and you realize that you do want to tell stories about conflict but you also realize that you can't just end those stories without some kind of resolution. How did you discover that. And i mean how did you know if that was even possible. Yeah i mean kind of a weird genesis story. So this is what brings me to dolly or saint dolly.

You know but to your point. Nobody's really tuned into hell. Let's put the maybe the olympics Insert some type of conventional getting along. Let just compete in sports with no wars and kid on each other. I mean you know would be a healthy thing for countries. If they could get together. And do that. I guess while you things that i think it values humans you know we we. We live here. We're this let. No debt remain outstanding. Which we're gonna get to in rome. Thirteen eight except the one to love one another. I mean you love your neighbor. Don't do some of the and those. The listeners are going to send this answer. I'll just go ahead and bring it up dog about so because a lot of people have been turned off that olympics. Because there's been a you know a few athletes that have you know light out during the anthem or turn their back. You know the flag and were some stuff that was put on a t-shirt and so a little of that has happened. i i think it's not widespread. Although you know. I honestly i i haven't seen accept what's being reported so i want them so right. A lot of people want to throw it out. Because i kind of took the other take. I mean. i don't like that. Obviously but i thought most of those americans that are over there love their country love competing so i hate to throw out the whole games because there's a few in my nephew bad actors and bad apple so it's just another way to look at that but i know there's strong opinions about it. In our you know our listeners said about camaraderie. They ought to. They ought to consider that. I guess among nations camaraderie here when we get together and yeah but hey when we'd rather not go to war but sometimes there is war. Which kind is the lead in is. We had a question from a guy named jared. That's a I don't know if he's still in the military or which is was but he'd been deployed several times and he had been involved in in several firefights in in one of the cases Took someone's life you know one of the one of the combatants That they were that we've been fighting against. I guess in afghanistan or somewhere in the middle east and It obviously has bothered him so we asked us about it. I in lieu of the ten commandments. He said you know it says thou shall not kill which it actually says that. I should not murder but i want us to talk a little bit about that as we lead into rome. Thirteen because it you know. Paolo lays out a i. Guess a case for foul in the authorities in there he mentions even the idea about burying the sword so women let me just read. It says everyone must submit himself to the governor authorities for there's no authority except that which god is established which he was basically giving the almighty credit for the the idea of establishment that we have on the earth yet called law and order the authorities that exists have been established by god consequently he who rebels against the authorities rebuilding yes. Well god is instituted in those who do so bring jobs. Run them sales for rulers. Hold no terror for those who do right but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from the fear of the one in authority. Then do what's right and he will come in you for he is god's servant to do you good but if you do wrong be afraid and you got a member i think he's speaking in generalities here. I mean there are corrupt governments in there. They're in there always. Is this president of good. Nevil do he goes on to say he is. God's servant an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoing therefore it is necessary to submit to the authorities not only because of possible punishment but also because of content. And then he even says this is also why you pay taxes for the authorities are god's servants who give their full-time of governing. Give everyone what you always. If it's taxes taxes revenue revenue. And then he comes down and says let no debt remain outstanding except the debt to love one another and then by the end of thirteen. He gives you a pitcher. What the greater motivation for us to be. Which is to be like. Jesus what jared wny's understand is Let's take a break. We'll take a break. I would say to jared said when the japanese for no reason. They had no reason when they attacked pearl harbor and they were trying to expand their empire they were a powerful powerful nation at the time so they attacked china all their neighbors. They started concord islands. They said we need to get the united states out of the way. So let's let's let's take care of their their fleet at pearl harbor so about three thousand. I think a little less than three thousand died on that day and in that day will live in infamy. According to the president roosevelt at the time this day will live in infamy. Because we're coming back so we declared war on japan because they attacked us. Journeys understand that millions step forth and went to the marine corps. Air force army Everybody so everybody under one said we're gonna we're gonna let you do that attack us for no reason so when they all joined up we lost hundreds of thousands during that process. Four five six years. So we're to came and left but all those guys. I went to omaha beach. And i stood on that sand and looked how far it was to the edge the bluff and on top of the bluffs all the germans lurgan that of the war. I was just hoping that. They had a love for god and believed in jesus christ before. They started out a call san that that beach. So that's that. So the twin towers jared. We were attacked two of our tallest buildings in the new york city for crying out loud and they ran jet loads of human beings into these buildings and they did it with with no reason. They just did it because they they were trying to make a point. I guess so. They murdered all the citizens of three thousand died there so jazz. The conflict you're into you were there. Because the president of the united states. George bush said the people who brought these towers down. They're going to be hearing from us. So jared you the one of the ones that Joined up but when when you you killed our enemy just remember. They're the ones that started. And in my humble opinion it was a righteous undertaking. When you signed up joined up and you went into war against the enemy by my count. I think we want it. Basically out of there now. And it's all ended iraq afghanistan and all that. But i think i think it was worthy of note that they're the ones that started running airplanes in the building. It's not us out mentioned at the beginning. You kind briefly set it. But the doesn't say thou shalt not kill it dow shot not murder. The hebrew word is is murder and so a killing is not necessarily sinful. And it's murder in if you're if you if someone breaks into your house and you know they're gonna rape pillage your family and your belongings e obviously you defend your family that you kill them in response that's not. That's that's an honorable thing to do to protect your family. So i would tell jared first and foremost because the email said dow shot and killed and i see that shot up murder and when i ran for us congress In two thousand fourteen..

I what it what is value if it's not like and follows And you'll always gonna be wanting to calculate a return on investment. You're gonna wanna find what the business won't you bring back to the business after the nba year But i i really liked the that concept. Because i'm not an instagram. Famous guy. Like i don.

"Hair care. Tell me exactly what that means. So we basically created hair care products, which is shampoo conditioner styling cream and shines serum where we took out the sulfates, parabens and phthalates which are sort of the big knows. That everybody agrees on there. A lot of ingredients that people don't agree on. That's what's so difficult about clean beauty. But. Those three pretty much everybody agrees on we took those out. It's really hard to do in hair care because those are the things that create censorial experiences and suds and. A sense of feeling of clean people like. You have to find alternative ingredients to replace them at. We wanted the products to still feel very luxurious in high-performing. And when James was created wny's. He intuitively knew without knowing the way I I worked on here care for a bunch of my career and I know from consumer insight and Research Perspective hydration is the number one issue for consumers. James. Didn't know that he just intuitively knew. That people would always complain and their hair would be dry and it be fried and he'd be dealing with models at clairol where he took color their hair colored back and so he kind of just knew that if you solve hydration pretty much everyone's Harish isn't actually the truth you can your hair we shinier healthier less frizzy more manageable fuller. All the things you want with when it's just properly hydrated. So now I'm sorry. Go ahead. No No. So I was just wondering is this haircare can it be used on all types of hair? We tested it on. Every type of hair we could find. We did quite a bit of extensive a consumer testing. our chemists are also African American and they tested it on themselves above. because. They're like, you know. Torture tests and and I knew if they were happy with the products and they would actually use the products that a lot of other people would be happy with them as well. So we tested them to sort of crew that out and see is that actually the case and test it on all types of Asian. Hair we tested it on like my kind of hair which is very straits and thin and colored. tested on in a super course hair super curly hair. I would say. It's not like there's no product that's going to be one hundred percent everybody. But. We felt that we could make a product that was going to work for like ninety percent of people and I think that's been proven out so far since we've launched the people that really like it the most tend to be on the ends of the spectrum what I mean by that is either like me like very.
