Jared Asch Talks With Chris Whitmore of the Richmond Promise
"I am joined by Christopher Whitmore of Richmond Promise. And Chris, first, tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to Richmond Promise. And then tell us, what is the Richmond Promise? Absolutely. First off, thank you for inviting me on the podcast. Really great to be here and have this conversation. So I was raised here in the city of Richmond. I still live in Richmond, and growing up here in our community, like so many other young people, I wanted to enter into a career pathway and build an adult life in which I could support the Richmond community and try to make this city, this community, the kind of place that I always envisioned it to be, which is a place where everyone can thrive. Everyone can feel welcome here in Richmond, feel like they have opportunities from the city, from the community to be who they want to be, to contribute to this space and to make this city better for everyone. And so with that really broad, general goal in mind, I decided at a very young age, elementary school age, that I wanted to be a public official when I grew up. I wanted to work specifically in the mayor's office of the city of Richmond when I grew up. And my godmother, Erma Anderson, was mayor when I was in elementary school. She was the first African -American woman elected mayor of the city of Richmond. I grew up with folks like John Gioia, who's our county supervisor and has been our representative for several years on the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and several other folks who really inspired me to want to build out a career in public service. And so with that in mind, I went off to college. I went out of state to Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri. I studied political science with an emphasis in public law. After graduating from Webster in 2014, I moved to Washington, D .C., where I was accepted into a congressional fellowship. And through that fellowship, I worked in the office of then U .S. Senator Bill Nelson's office of Florida. I moved back to Richmond in December 2014 and got my first job, first full time job working for Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, who at the time was the representative, newly elected representative for California's 11th congressional district. I had the privilege of working as an outreach coordinator in his Richmond office, which is actually just down the hall from where my current office is today. A year later, 2016, I got to accomplish that childhood goal of mine of working in the mayor's office. I worked for Mayor Tom Butt, starting off initially as his director of community engagement, later promoted to be his director of policy and strategy. After about two years in that office, I went over to the city and county of San Francisco, where I went to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and worked on their policy and government affairs team. And for about a year and a half, I wrote, along with my supervisor, all of the water, power and wastewater legislation for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. And I'll speed up the story. So about a year and a half later, I came back here to the city of Richmond and served as Tom Butt's chief of staff for exactly two years. And two years ago, October 4th, 2021, I started as Richmond Promise's second executive director. And it's been a great journey over the last two years, and I was really inspired to make the transition from the mayor's office to Richmond Promise. Just thinking back on my experience growing up in Richmond, having a goal to go to college at a young age for the sake and purpose of really accomplishing my career goals. And just being reminded constantly that there are so many other young people in Richmond who have educational and career goals for themselves. And those young people also deserve to have really strong support systems in our community to help them go off and do the things that they want to do. And I came over to Richmond Promise to strengthen that support system for our entire community.

RINO Billionaires Are Now Coalescing Behind Nikki Haley
"Wants you to know she's up for the fight. She's told us over and over again that she's a woman. Why does she have to tell us over and over again that she's a woman? Isn't that what the Libs do, or at least used to do? Okay, got it. She's a woman. Perfect. But she's not Margaret Thatcher. Let's be honest. The problem is Nikki Haley's not a conservative. I've said it before I'll and say it again. She's George Bush in a dress. Obviously what I mean by that is ideologically. This is why Karl Rove is getting behind her. This is why others who horrific have losing streaks are getting behind her. Billionaires getting behind her. There's a report out now, I think it was Axios, that said that she was meeting with the. No, no, there's a report on Axios that says Mitt Romney's big money guy has now moved over to Kelly's team. What? Oh yeah. Romney's guy. And there's more. Remember this guy Fink at Black Rock? I wrote about him and The Democrat Party hates America and we've talked about him very often. Black Rock? Remember he was pushing ESG, that is, he was pushing hard this woke agenda and trying to impose it on all the other companies that he helps finance or invests in? A one -man wrecking machine, this guy Fink. Well guess who she met with a few days ago? Him. Why would she meet with him? Ron DeSantis. May I use his name, Mr. Producer? Is that okay? What drew $2 billion from Black Rock because of what they were doing? Yeah. Thank you. Iggy Haley And Iggy Haley was the one who said she said it herself. I know this to be true. I checked with my stepson, Mr. Producer. And that is that Disney, she said Disney can come to South Carolina while DeSantis is fighting Disney. She invites them to South Carolina and I can go on and on. And it's not just her versus DeSantis or her versus Ramaswami or versus her Trump, it's her versus us. Us.

"Limits for anybody who's in the federal bureaucracy. That's what we actually need. And that's how you actually drain the swamp. Yeah. I mean, so let's let's connect two things together. I'm not saying they're necessarily connected, but let's let's emphasize this. The Department of Justice announced in early November that there was a high end brothel network used outside of Washington, D.C., and they've intentionally not released the names of the people that got the services, just the people operating the high end brothel network. But they said it was politicians, members of Congress, generals, defense contractors. Is it possible to make Ramaswamy that the legacy of J. Edgar Hoover continues, that there's some quiet blackmail of Congress going on to make sure that the fourth branch of government has unlimited authority to spy on American citizens? I think that there are I mean, it's clear leverage. I mean, I'm not going to surmise what exact leverage is. Was that story whether it's another one like it. But Charlie, I'll remind you, it is still literally you asked about is the legacy of J. Edgar Hoover survive? Of course it does. It's literally the J. Edgar Hoover building of the FBI, by the way, that they have leverage over for in favor of a new headquarters that the FBI doesn't need. It's literally the J. Edgar Hoover building. So it's not a secret that that legacy survives. Of course it does. Everybody should read this book, Charlie. I don't have anything to do with the book, but it's called G-Man. It stands for government man. It's a book about the history of the FBI. My wife's actually the one who was reading it first. I've now taken an interest in it. And anybody who reads that book left or right, I think will then better understand why I believe we need to shut the FBI down. It's a detailed history of J. Edgar Hoover's legacy at the FBI. And the thing about that book is it's not just about the history of the FBI. Once you leave that about the last several decades, you actually realize that that's not a story about the past. It's as much a story about the present. But the people who we elect to run the government, they're not the ones who run the government. And if you're too busy arguing about Republicans versus Democrats in Congress, you are missing the point about the real issue in Washington, D.C. It's the unelectable and many unelected and in many cases, nonpartisan bureaucracy that's actually pulling the strip. That's a real plot. Vivek, keep campaigning. We'll see you at AmFest. God bless you, man. Thank you. See you. Thanks.

"America's colleges and universities today are less concerned with critical thinking than with indoctrination. It is no wonder why so many young Americans embrace cancel culture, deny free speech to conservatives and even celebrate terrorism. But I'm happy to report there is one college where students debate ideas openly and honestly, where they pursue truth together with their professors and where America's great heritage of liberty is studied and revered. My favorite college, Hillsdale College, as stated in Hillsdale's founding document in 1844, Hillsdale's original mission was to offer the kind of serious liberal arts education needed to preserve the blessings of civil and religious liberty across the land. And this mission continues to guide Hillsdale College today. You can learn more at my favorite college's Web site, Charlie for Hillsdale dot com. There you will find a short video. It's just over a minute long showing how Hillsdale's work, not only on its Michigan campus, not only Washington, D.C. campus, but across the nation is effective in defending American liberty.

When I fill in for Dan, we've got a story for you from our border. southern Remember that? We used to have one of those. The Texas Tribune has a got a piece this week. Mexico rejects Texas's proposal to allow state police case to deport undocumented immigrants. Boy, even the headline needs to be untangled. Undocumented immigrants. That's a lie. Let's talk about language in the last hour, the way the left manipulates it. Undocumented immigrants. Really? Because what I'm seeing a lot of is stolen social security numbers and fake paperwork and even people come into the United States illegally, then walk up to Border Patrol agents and then they're given some sort of documents that demonstrate that we're aware they're here. So they're not undocumented. They're actually documented. So that's already a lie. It's generous to say that they're immigrants because that in a sense justifies coming into the United States. What's really going on is they're illegal aliens by every traditional definition of the word and also that's what appears in our statutes. The laws themselves say illegal aliens. But Mexico is rejecting a Texas proposal to allow state police to deport illegals. What do you mean rejecting it? So Mexico us allows to, if the federal government wants to do it, on the very rare occasion that it does nowadays. That's fine, but if Texas wants to do it, Mexico is rejecting it? What's the difference to them? Well, the difference is obvious. Our federal government is not doing it. And any attempt by any American entity to actually put illegals in trebuchets and throw them back across the street, they're going to reject. They're against. No, no, no, no. Don't send them to us. We don't want them. We opened up our country. It's so they would come to you. Mexico does not police its own southern border. It used to. Trump When was in office, Trump forced them to. He actually threatened a trade war unless they got control of the thing. Okay, fine, fine, fine. They got control of their southern border, and they slowed down all of the

A highlight from Bitcoin ETF Hype is Exaggerated w/ Andrew Horowitz | Investment Advisor
"All right, today we're going to be diving into some macro news, also get into a little bit of what's happening in DC and then towards the end, we'll get into a little bit of ETFs, some strategies and some things to look forward to in 2024. We're going to do it with a special guest. I think you guys will love it. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back to Tech Path. Joining me today, of course, is a friend and a guest who's been on our show many times and that, of course, is Mr. Andrew Horowitz, president and founder, Horowitz & Company. Great to have you back. What's happened? It's been a while. How are you, Paul? It has been a while. I'm doing great. The markets are kind of a little crazy, but I think this is, with everything that's going on right now, not only in DC, but just globally from just the scenarios we're facing internationally, I think what's to be expected, I think it's at least, nothing's burnt down yet, so that's a good thing. At least yet. Good news. Yeah, good news. Success. Nothing's on fire that we know of other than, well, a few things. Let's talk about a few things that might be on fire and that, of course, is the U .S.'s credit rating, downgraded from Moody's, not necessarily looking that great and a looming shutdown right now. Obviously, Andrew, you being an investment advisor, you get a chance to work with a lot of high net worth individuals. What's their take on this? Are they concerned at all? What do you think is up? So it's interesting. I was watching, just to be clear, the Moody's move was really not a downgrade. It was more of a credit watch, which is equivalent to like a mini downgrade, if you want to call it that, but it's not a true downgrade. It's saying, it slapped us on it and it was all about just voicing the opinion of the bond rating agency of the dysfunction in Washington. And by the way, it doesn't take a genius or anybody that is doing anything in life to know that there is, that doesn't know that there's a severe dysfunction in Washington, D .C. Our political leaders cannot make a decision and they won't make a decision for any good reason other than the fact of what is politically expedient and good for themselves. And they're not really doing a good job for any of us, right? So okay, that being the state of where we are and the fact that we can't get a budget done, you know, we had to open the debt ceiling up for a year and a half to an unlimited amount of debt being pumped in if necessary, and the fact that they can't get the full resolution done on anything more than a continuing resolution to fund government is a problem, is that there's a functional dysfunction in Washington, kind of like the walking dead of politicians. So most people realize that they're not going to be terribly affected long term, even if we do shut down the parks, the various agencies. Those people are going to get their money when we reopen, eventually something will break and they will be a budget done. So it's this very strange time of a realization that there could be a downgrade. But in the end, what happens, what happens is, as Alan Greenspan would say, it doesn't matter what our rating is, we could always print as much money as we need to pay off all of our debts. The U .S. is not going to default. Yeah, well, but that's the truth. And that's what we've done. Well, yes. And of course, I think, you know, if you look at the spiraling national debt and the continued rise in that, I mean, at some point they have to be able to address this. Is there really any way out of this other than a complete pivot by Powell? There's no way. I can't see a way. You know, what do you do? You raise the, well, yeah, I'll give you the way, right? We all buckle down. We pay higher taxes. You and I are not in favor of that, are we? No, but that's what we do. We slow down the spending on excess and we spend, just like you would do as a business or an individual. If all of a sudden, you know, your salary is capped out at X, you don't spend X plus 20, unless you know you're going to get some money in the future, for whatever reason, whether it's, I don't care if it's an inheritance or whether you're gonna get a raise or a bonus or something else comes in, but that's not how the government operates. They operate on, listen, we're going to spend X, but that's what we plan probably to spend X times, you know, 20 % more. And then if it doesn't work out, what we'll do is just print money and figure our way out of it. And that's what we've been doing for a long time. We're debt dependent society. Sure, sure. With that being the case, you look at the potentials here. I was just looking at a tweet from Peter Schiff, obviously a big gold bug, Moody's lowered its rating, obviously, yes. Risks have been obvious for years on a treasury, it should be rated junk. If you hold them to maturity, guaranteed to lose, and the reason I want to show this is when you look at whether it's 10 -year treasuries or you look at something like gold or Bitcoin, obviously we've seen both of these assets in comparison to the S &P do very well this year. We're also getting ready to go into 2024, there's a lot of things happening in the blockchain industry and within the crypto markets that is probably going to shift around a little bit. You've also got a lot of technology that's been building over time. When you look at the markets like that and you see what people are expecting out of the S &P by the end of the year and through the first of next year, which people are, some analysts, anticipating an uptrend, what is your thought around the market condition right now? Do you feel like we've hit the bottom or is this something that we may see some more pain? Can we just go back to Peter Schiff for a second? Just for a moment. Peter Schiff, I know him well, he's been on my show many times. How many times is he going to be wrong with people just still believing him and wanting to believe him? I've known him for 15 years and it's been the same discussion over and over. The dollar is going to zero, the same thing. And why? He's talking his book. It's a good spiel and he has not been able to pivot off of that. Every once in a while, it looks like he's a flash of genius, right, that this is going to be. And it does make sense, by the way. What he says makes total sense. We haven't broken yet. We haven't broken anything yet. The Fed has been trying to tighten.

I'm Joe Matthew in Washington, alongside Kaylee Lines, and this is Bloomberg Sound On, starting a bit late today. I guess it's the fastest hour in politics once again. Kaylee, it's great to see you. I could listen to him all day, whether you agree with him or not, he just has a way of kind of capturing you with the way he speaks. We covered a lot of ground there and was steeped in politics for a lot of the conversation as well. Yeah, a lot of fiscal questions. Of course, as we're having this funding debate here in Washington, Ken Griffin essentially saying that if you look at the market, it is telling us that we cannot run annual fiscal deficits in the magnitude that we're running. Then he went on to say that, look, we're in an election year, however, so it's very unlikely that fiscal policy is actually going to tighten because that's just politically really difficult. And of course, that's on the domestic side. He had a lot to say on geopolitics as well, Joe. That's for sure. We got into China, as you would expect. I was kind of taken by the Nikki Haley conversation. He sounds like he's warming up to the former governor of South Carolina, but we'll talk a lot more about it as we make our way through the day here on Bloomberg and through this hour with myself and Kaylee, because we've got news here, Kaylee, in just a couple of hours, there's going to be a vote on the house.
FBI Officials Singled Out Agents Who Were Former Military
"And again, I'll say it again because the show is fair. have I very strong opinions about things, especially police state type activities, because I a was cop and I did not abuse my authority. And I don't understand why other people, if you're going to go in that space, can't control your inclination to do that. I know what happens, you know, as corrupts. I get it, but that doesn't mean I understand it. I never did it. Why can't you just do the right thing? So the story about the FBI potentially targeting members of the military, which again, they strongly deny. And I'm going to, Jim, is there any way you can do this? Do they have a PR branch? I guess you can read the public relations or something. No, I'm serious. Can we reach out? I'd love to. I'd love to get a comment on this story. They'd like to come hear it. There's this woman, Deena Perkins and Jeffrey Veltri, who were accused by Carrie Pickett in the Washington Times, basically of targeting people who served in the Marine Corps or military branches. This is serious charges. If the woman and the guy would like to come on, I'm happy to hear him out. I don't want this story to be true, but this is devastating. I mean, just think about this for a second. If even a shred of this is true, and I'll get into the article in more depth in a second, imagine you're a young man or young woman. You sign up for the Marine Corps, one of the toughest boot camps in the world. The Marines who are at the forefront of any time the world is in conflict, the Marines go out there first. You got expeditionary units, you got reaction forces in the Marine Corps. They're there on the ground doing God's work to preserve freedom all over the world. These guys are badasses. To all the Marines in my audience, I tell you this with respect. Don't take this the wrong way. I envy you. I really do. I don't envy lot a of people. I envy you. My greatest regret in my lifetime is not going in the Marine Corps, because it's a different breed of human. It just is. When I was an instructor in our academy, in my last line of work, I always made the Marines the class presidents, because they were just, they were always on time, looked sharp, and it was their example that kept everyone else in line. I didn't care if you were the CEO of a company. We had a guy in one of the Secret Service classes, went to the San Francisco office. He was a medical doctor. He was a nice guy, but I didn't pick him for class president. We picked the Marines, because they were always five paragraph order types. Bang, bang, bang. You go into Corps, Marine and you find yourself in the FBI, and

A highlight from George C. Wolfe - 'Rustin'
"Monarch Legacy of Monsters, an Apple Original Series. The world is on fire. I decided to do something about it. On November 17th. This place, it's not ours. Believe me. The most massive event of the year arrives. If you come with me, you'll know everything, I promise. Oh my God, go, go, go! Monarch Legacy of Monsters, streaming November 17th. Only on Apple TV+. My guest today is one of the great storytellers of Stage and Screen, which is why it's only fitting that he's here at the Fest to collect the Storyteller Award. He's a playwright best known for writing 1986's The Colored Museum and co -writing 1992's Jelly's Last Gem. He's a theater director best known for directing the original Broadway productions of Angels in America Millennium Approaches and Angels in America Perestroika, two landmark plays in 1993, and a host of Broadway musicals, including 1996's Bring in the Noise, Bring in the Funk, 2004's Caroline or Change, and 2016's Shuffle Along. And he's a screen director best known for directing the 2005 limited series Lackawanna Blues and the films Night in Rodanthe from 2008, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks from 2017, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom from 2020, and this year's Rustin, the story of Bayard Rustin, the gay civil rights activist who organized the 1963 March on Washington. Over the course of his career, this 69 -year -old has been nominated 15 times for a Tony Award, winning three for best direction of a play for Angels in America Millennium Approaches in 1993, best direction of a musical for Bring in the Noise, Bring in the Funk in 1996, and best special theatrical event for Elaine Stritch at Liberty in 2002. He was nominated for an Emmy best directing for a limited series for Lackawanna Blues in 2005, and he has twice been nominated for the Directors Guild of America Award for outstanding directing of a miniseries or TV film for Lackawanna Blues in 2006, which resulted in a win, and for The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks in 2018. The New York Times' Ben Brantley has described him as a brilliant stage director, arguably the best now working in the American theater. The Los Angeles Times declared, there are few living talents who could be viewed as as much of a New York theater institution. Interview Magazine said it would be difficult to overstate his status on Broadway, and Tony Kushner proclaimed that he is the premier theater artist of my generation. And those are just the quotes about his work in theater. There are many more about his work in film. But without further ado, would you please join me in welcoming to the SCAD Savannah Film Festival and to the Hollywood Reporters Awards Chatter Podcast, Mr. George C. Wolfe. Mr. Wolfe, thank you so much for coming to Savannah. Glad to be here, glad to. Let's just start at the very beginning. Where were you born and raised, and what did your folks do for a living? I was born and raised in Frankfort, Kentucky. My mother was a teacher, and she later became a principal of the schools. I went to that school. She taught me. It was horrifying. My father worked for the state government, and that's that. For the first eight years of your life, the town in which you grew up was segregated. Yes. You have spoken about wanting to go see a movie, 101 Dalmatians, and not being able to do that because of your race. Well, my grandmother was this incredibly ferocious figure who would take on anybody. I telling remember her that I wanted to go see 101 Dalmatians at the Capitol Theater. I remember her calling and them telling her no. It was sort of startling and shocking and fascinating because it was the first time I'd ever see her come into contact with a no. So that was fascinating. But then it integrated, and then at one point, when I went to high school, I was editor of the high school newspaper, and I went and convinced the man who ran the Capitol Theater that I should go see movies for free so that I could write reviews. He said, but by the time the review comes out, the movies will be gone. I said, but it's cultivating a love of movies, and so that's what my column will do. It was my slight payback because then I got to go see movies for free. I love it. Let's talk, though, there's a moment you've described over the years. You were in fourth grade, and your, at that time, all black grade goes to an all white class. But that time, I think it was probably a little bit older, so I got about the PTA and the singing. Well, I think by that time, Frankfurt was integrated, but I still went to this black school which was connected to a university there. And the principal, this woman named Minnie J. Hitch, you told us, because we were going to be singing a song, and the lyrics were these truths we are declaring that all men are the same, that liberty is a torch burning with a steady flame. And she told us that when we got to the line that liberty is a torch burning with a steady flame, we should sing it with a ferocity and that we would shatter all racism in the room. So I literally remember these truths we are declaring that all men are the same, that liberty is a torch, you know. And then racism was gone. And racism was gone, exactly. They were all transformed. But it sort of was like so cluelessly wonderful for somebody to tell someone that young that if you say words and if you say them with power and conviction, you can change people. And that sense of potency of conviction and language was embedded in me, and it's never left. When did you see your first theatrical production that was done professionally? When I was 12 or 13, my mother went to do some advanced degree work at NYU, and she brought me a log, and it was one summer. And so I saw a production of West Side Story that was done at the State Theater at Lincoln Center. Then I saw a production of Hello Dolly with Cab Calloway and Pearl Bailey. And then I saw a production, as it turns out, from the Public Theater and Mobile Unit that Cleavon Little played Hamlet. Wow. And it was done in Washington Square Park. Wow. And some in respect, each of those three productions had, I think, a lasting impact on a kind of aesthetic. Right. And the thing interesting about the Mobile Unit, it was free. And so it was seeing the rawness of that energy of the audience was also very, it was very, very, really wonderful and really interesting and great. So the throughout rest of your time in high school, you were increasingly involved in theater and school. I don't know if it was specific, I think, was it writing, directing, acting? What were you focused on at that point? Acting and directing. And also it's very interesting because when I went to that high school, I stuttered really intensely. So this is one thing I was talking about earlier. So they decided that I was stupid because I stuttered. And so they called my mother over to the school to say, and they wanted to put me in remedial classes. And she says, are you crazy? No, that's not happening. And so I developed an Evita complex. So I said, by the time I leave this school, I will be running it. And so I was editor. I was drum major. I was the worst drum major since the dawn of time. I just, you know, I was editor of the newspaper, of the literary magazine. I just did all these stubs just to, you know, how dare you dismiss? I could tell. And I never heard the story about them calling my mother over, but I could tell I was being disregarded. Right. I sensed it. And I went, no. So you start college in Kentucky and then move to Pomona and California. What at that time? This is there. Oh, yeah. We're doing the whole thing. Exactly. What was the idea of going out to California? Was it just to have a change of scenery or did you were you already thinking maybe that's where you go if you want to be in show business? No, not at all. I had always dreamed of going to New York. I would I would watch, you know, TV shows that were set in New York, like the Dick Van Dyke Show. And I remember this is kind of neurotic and crazy. But I what I really I was obsessed with Disney and I wanted to have my own amusement park. But I wanted money. I knew you need a lot of money. So I decided that actors made a lot of money. This is when I was seven or eight. And so and I knew the actors starved. So when I was seven or eight, I used to practice not eating. So that when I went to New York, this is insanely true that, you know, that I so I could deal with it, you know. Well, little did I know one doesn't need to practice starvation. So you graduate from Pomona, go to L .A. for a little while to do theater, to do theater. OK, now theater, as I guess you quickly concluded, is primarily in New York. Well, yeah, I mean, at one point I did shows and I started to get some good reviews in the L .A. Times. And then I got called in. I don't even remember for to be a writer on a sitcom. And and I and I said something funny and they said, oh, he's quick. We're going to have to tie one hand behind his back. And I took that literally. And that's when I went I'm moving to New York. You know, I just was it was like time to go time to go time to go confront a whole bunch of other stuff and things I need to learn and get smarter about. Well, so, OK, you move. It's 1979. You're in your 20s. You moved to New York. Early 20s. Early 20s. Right, right, right. Very early. In fact, I was 19. I was just pretending to be 20. Something like that. Yeah. You moved to New York. There are a number of years then after moving there that were we can say lean. You got to put into practice not eating so much. You what said once quote, I came to New York to write and direct. And when I got here, a lot of my rage came out. Close quote. What do you mean by that? Well, it's so interesting because in L .A., it's you know, it's you know, there's more space. So so, you know, poverty and wealth are very much so separated. And then in New York, it's, you know, they're next door to each other. And the intensity of the inequity at the time, plus the fact that I had no real power over my existence, sort of magnified all of that. And I remember I remember seeing I remember at one time seeing this image of this of this woman in a fur coat. It was winter and eating chocolates and there was a subway vent and there was this homeless woman sitting there. And she had newspaper wrapped around her legs instead of boots. And she was like like crazy and was like and just seeing those two images next to each other. It's you know, it's the thing about New York. Every single time you step foot outside your front door, you see somebody who is worse off than you and you see somebody who is living a completely different life to you. So you have you get instant perspective whether you want it or not. So in those those leaner years, you are teaching a little bit. You're going to get your own MFA at NYU Tisch in dramatic writing, your... Dramatic writing and musical theater and a double MFA. And then there's a opportunity to have a work of yours produced for the first time at Playwrights' Horizon, which is a big deal. Playwrights? No. And how did that go? Well, it it was interesting. It was it was ultimately the best thing that could have happened for my career. I didn't direct it. I wrote the I wrote the book and I wrote the lyrics for it. And it and there were things that in the rehearsal process that I. And also, when I first came to New York, I said, I'm a writer and director, and they said, no, you can't do both. You have to focus in on one. I said, but I could do both. And they said, no, you can't. So I focused just on the writing. So then I there were things that were happening in the rehearsal room that I knew weren't right. But in the spirit of ra ra ra, getting along and being good guy and all this sort of stuff, I didn't object. And then I remember there was a tornado passing through New York City on the day my bad review came out. So I'm standing on the corner of 95th and Broadway with the winds blowing. I'm reading this hate review. And it was so very painful. But it was really interesting because it was very good for me because, you know, I went, oh, if this happens again, if I get another bad review. And of course, I've gotten bad reviews. But if it's going to be because it's my vision. Because it's I because I put every single thing I had on the line. Everybody, we're only in the room to make a very beautiful baby. And if we become good friends as a result of that, that's fine. But we all have a responsibility. The people that you're collaborating with to do their finest, best work. And you have to do your finest, best work. And it was interestingly enough, when I was at NYU, the piece that I wrote that bombed, I went, oh, this is going to be successful. And then there was this play that I wrote just for myself called The Colored Museum. And yeah, none of y 'all applauded when I said the title of the other thing, Paradise, did you? No. But that's what happened. It was the most interesting thing because I wrote one for success and I wrote one for myself. And that was the thing that succeeded. And so it was a very deeply, deeply, deeply valuable lesson. It was just like, and then eight weeks later, all those people who trashed, eight weeks, no, eight months were that it were eight weeks. Eight months later, all those people who trashed me were going, oh, where has he been? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. And I'm so glad it happened that way. I'm so glad that the first piece was treated that way so that therefore it gave me a clarity and a sense of responsibility. And doing and doing work that I believed in and and that was that I believe mattered as opposed to something that was going to lead to success. It was just one of those slap you in the face and get smart, George. So you mentioned The Colored Museum, which let's just say, though, you know, you had you're coming off the rough review. How did you even get the opportunity to do The Colored Museum, which is going to as if you don't know, it was the first big success for Mr. Wolf. So how did that opportunity even come out of that? Well, it came out of that because I was at Playwrights Horizons because the guy named Lee Richardson, who was running a theater called Crossroads, said you're at Playwrights Horizons. And I don't think there's ever been a black playwright at Playwrights Horizons. Do you have something else that you've written? I said, well, funny you should ask. Dada, Colored Museum. And so that's how it happened. So there is there were they were both connected in a in a in a way that didn't seem so at the time, but was sort of brilliantly perfect. I want to ask you. So The Colored Museum is produced at Crossroads in 86 and then moved to the Public Theater in 87, which you'll notice the Public Theater, the great off Broadway institution, is going to come up quite a few times in this conversation. But for people who weren't around at that time or don't know or whatever, can you describe what The Colored Museum is about and what the controversy backlash that that provoked was? Because it was you you had to develop thick skin early on because it was not all fun and games in response to that one either. Well, but that was different. That was called pure unadulterated jealousy. So that was that was that was just, you know, I came from nowhere and all of a sudden I'm at the Public Theater. And Frank Rich wrote a wrote a review, a rave review, and said it's the kind of playwright who takes no prisoners. And people thought and that meant he kills people. The language kills them. And people thought that that meant I was soft. So it was just like that was just dumb cluelessness. That was very that was very easy to dismiss. And and, you know, and it was it was just jealousy. It was and that I, you know, I went, oh, my feelings are hurt. Oh, I'm over that. OK, go to hell. You know, it's just sort of like I didn't I didn't sweat about that. Well, tell us a little bit about the show, because this is your big success. First. Yeah, it was first. Well, it's it's interesting when I was at NYU. In the dramatic writing program, there are about three or four people writing plays about old black tap dancers, and they didn't happen to be old black or tap dancers. And so and I was just I was just I just thought about it. And I said, so somebody has figured out, has made a decision or dynamics have been created so that people have decided what black is. And I'm going, I'm black, I'm black my entire life. And I view it as this ever changing, complicated, insane, brilliant, amazing thing. So it was an effort to shatter, shatter any preconceived notions that I thought were going to stand in the way of what I wanted to create. So I wrote this play, which was eight exhibits set inside a museum. So I wanted to shatter all the perception, any perceptions that were in my head. So it's to liberate me to go in any direction that I wanted it to. And that's what happened. And it became this and it became this very successful show. It played, I think, for I think for 10 months at the Public Theater. Then it went to the Royal Court in London. Then it toured all around. And now it's it's high schools do it now and stuff, which is great. So it's in. And then as a result of it, then I started getting interesting from that. I went from, you know, being completely flat broke to then I met the kids of studios. I got Mike Nichols wanted me to write a movie for him. Robert Altman wanted me to write movies. So all of a sudden, you know, these job opportunities happened. But it wasn't for many years that you actually went into film. In the meantime, you were kind of seizing this interest in the theater, this opportunity now in theater. There was a person who is legendary by the name of Joseph Papp, who founded and ran the public, who took a great interest in you and, you know, brought you in there. And and we can say, you know, in addition to producing the colored museum, right. Named you one of three resident directors there offered to have a producing entity within the public for you. This was a big champion to have. He then passes away in 1991. He gets succeeded by a lady who was there for only 18 months. And then in August 1993, this institution of the sort of first thing that comes to mind when you think, at least for me, off Broadway comes looking for a new director. How did you become aware that there was interest in you for that position? And was it was that job, which you then spoiler alert, got and held for the next 12 years? Was it what you thought it would be? Nothing is ever what you think is going to be. But that's the point of the journey. It was actually it was I was I directed a Broadway show called Jealous Last Jab. And then I was then offered Angels in America. And and then I was in the middle of directing a seven hour play. And then they called up my lawyer and said, we want to talk to George about running the public theater. And I went, well, I'm kind of busy right now. Can they come back after? And they said no. And so they wanted to make a decision. So when I was in rehearsal, it was announced that I was running the public theater. It was I loved the thing which I loved. I loved, loved about running the public theater was giving artists money, giving artists money and spaces where they could go do work. It was that, you know, because I after after Jelly, I went, oh, this is hard. Surviving Broadway and dealing with all of these all of the dynamics and the money and the audiences and all of that stuff. This is really, really hard. And you have to be really, really tough. And so I knew all these artists who were really gifted, incredibly gifted people, but maybe weren't as tough. Can we can I just mention a few? Because these are shows that were given a spotlight by you in those years, which, in fact, several of them were just revived in the last couple of years. So decades later, people are, you know, coming back to them. But let's note, Twilight, Los Angeles, 1992. This was a dear, dear, very Smith and important show there. That was 1994. We had Top Dog Underdog, Suzan -Laurie Parks wins the Pulitzer for that 19 excuse me, 2002. Take me out again. Just revive. So these are the kinds of people who were talking about where you can. And this the public was not particularly known for its being inclusive prior to your tenure. Well, I'd say it was I think probably yes. I think it's also a place that gave us, you know, for colored girls and it's also a place that gave us for short eyes. So I'm so I would I wouldn't totally agree with that. And also these were very smart artists and these were tough artists. But there were, you know, it's just you people when you're beginning, you need a place to play, which means you need a place to fail so that you can get smarter. Like I had with Playwrights Horizons, you need you need to to do the work and not feel the pressure of it being the biggest hit in the world because you're growing and you're learning and you're getting smarter and you're getting tougher and you're learning more savvy. Just like the things that I allowed on the first production that was done, I didn't allow on the second one. And so you get, you know, so you're growing, you're growing all these muscles. It's not just your talent muscles. It's your your ability to defend yourself and to protect your work and to go, I disagree with that. And, you know, I remember one time there was a writer who was doing a play and a couple of things got really wonky at rehearsals. And I said, well, why didn't you speak up? He said, well, I was just scared that I was actually doing a play at the public theater and somebody was going to discover I didn't know what the hell I was doing and throw me out. And it's that fear you have to get. You have to realize that fear and doubt and other stuff, all that stuff is a part of growing and you have to have permission to grow. And so that's that's what I took on very much so, which is creating a space that was there. I wanted the I wanted the audiences and the artists there. I wanted it to look like the subway at rush hour in New York. I wanted to have all kinds of people there. So that was the thing that I loved after a while. It became very, very clear to me that as much as I was creating spaces for other artists, it was very challenging to be one. And while being in charge. Well, let's go back to, again, what you were doing when you got that opportunity to go there, because this was the beginning. While you're creating these opportunities for people off Broadway, you were making your first inroads on Broadway. As you mentioned, Jelly's Last Jam, 1992, you co -wrote and directed this about Jelly Roll Morton and the birth of jazz. Your first Broadway show musical with Gregory Hines and small role the first time you're working with Savion Glover. And this gets 11 Tony nominations, wins three and sort of leads to Angels in America. Now, this is it's been looked back at. I think the New York Times looked at it as the greatest show on Broadway of the last 30 years. It's an all timer, obviously, but you first saw it as a spectator in Los Angeles. It started at the Mark Tabor Forum. There doesn't sound like there was even a thought in your head that you might ever have anything to do with this. How did that change? Well, Jelly had opened up and I worked with a producer named Margo Lion, who passed away, who was a very dear friend of mine. And everybody, you know, and there were some changes that were going to be made from the Tabor to when it moved to Broadway. And she brought my name up and Tony Kushner and someone called me up and said, Tony Kushner wants to come and talk to you. I said, OK. And he came over and he talked and I had never read the play. I had only seen it. So I talked to him about it and just gave him my observations.

People unfortunately done in kruger affect they believe. They learned everything that they need to know from watching a few television shows when completing investigations for clients. They were giving clients in investigation results. That wouldn't hold up to an investigation if it were completed by experienced investigators. Of course they don't have the experience at a season investigator would but they weren't networking in using experienced investigators as consultant before doing the reveal. The client they won't researching paranormal science and investigative procedure countless. Smith's identification of paranormal activity remained. And i started getting contacted a lot. More by clients of other investigative groups to clarify findings in most cases. The investigation group was incorrect in their assessments out. Educate the client on their particular situation. You can't go to someone's house assume that everything that shows up on a gadget has to be paranormal until your client that the place is haunted. Not educate them on paranormal science. Because you aren't familiar with it yourself. And then we're knocked to the next investigation so you can find paranormal activity. The doesn't do any service to your client. These no investigation groups didn't have any ill intent. They legitimately didn't know that though so much more to what they were doing but they weren't aware of it because none of the television shows covered it as it didn't make for good television at that time someone would have to look pretty hard to find a series paranormal investigation group to learn from as most of them weren't posting videos online engaging groups of people sharing squeaky evidence they tend to only network with each other increase basic websites to make the general public aware of their existence most of these new investigation groups. That didn't seek out. Further education never lasted more than six months to a year or two mighty research showed me that most of them left the paranormal investigation field and went back to ghost hunting instead. They realize it wasn't as it appears to be on television. Many overcame the done in kruger affecting relies that they didn't have the skill set to perform a thorough investigation to help those clients. Those with try to do so joined up with more experienced granola investigation groups in found people to network with online to help. Increase your skill set. Those like didn't want to dedicate the time that it takes to become a well seasoned. Paranormal investigator either went back to go sunning or just got out of the field altogether.

"Found out this information, I once again asked myself what was happening to me what I had just seen, these stories are just a few of the countless unexplainable visions I had in my lifetime. As I grew older, I realized that I was not actually physically seeing these scenes as if they were in corporeal form, but was envisioning them in my mind as if my subconscious was painting me a picture trying to make sense of something. What that's something was, I was not sure for the longest time. It wasn't until 2009 that we get empirical research into this ability that I seem to have. I learned that I had what was known as retro cognition clairvoyance, the ability to see into the past. I have come to believe that I have somehow able to pick up residual energy that is left after traumatizing or very emotional incident in my mind is able to give that feeling an image in my mind. Until that time period I had kept my ability of secret out of fear of being judged, labeled, and due to the fact that any time I told someone in the past they thought that I was insane and should be committed. Very few people believe me the smallest would contain my mother, one of my sisters and one or two friends. Over time I began to surround myself with people who did not judge me and took me for my word. They believed what I was saying, and that alone made me feel much better. I joined a group of people who shared similar abilities and was a static to find out that I wasn't alone. Once I was able to stop hiding from my abilities and emitting them publicly it felt as if a large weight had been taken off of my chest. After seeking out knowledge and studying this phenomenon, I decided it was time that I started a company that would investigate into research on parapsychological paranormal entities. In October 2010, epic, extreme paranormal investigators consortium incorporated was born. I had formed a nonprofit organization and don't intend on making a single penny off this venture. I solicited the help of a half dozen people whom I brought into my team. These people had either some sort of psychic ability or experience as paranormal investigators in addition I took on two people who I am training to become paranormal investigators. I intended on continuing to learn as much as I can about fit metaphysics and parapsychology to better understand this ability that I have through the operations of epic ink and through classes at the metaphysical institute coupled with independent study. Over time I had hoped to gain more control over these abilities and will be able to call upon them as a desire. Instead of the abilities, just manifesting seemingly on their own when they decided to do so. It has been 13 years since I first entered the field of paranormal science. I have learned from an investigated with the top names in the field of study. I have spent years studying sciences related to perceived pernal activity and paranormal science itself. In 2017 I moved from Massachusetts to New Hampshire and ultimately changed theme of the group to mount Washington valley spirit. Over the years I've continued to exercise a retro cognition clairvoyance ability that I have. It hits me so often now that it is almost like a background noise until I focus on it. I have learned to use it when conducting parallel investigations as one of my many tools that I have at my disposal. I used the ability of a guide, another tool and not the Holy Grail of the investigation. I am not as verbal as I once was about my ability as such things have quite the stigmatized to it. I use it silently. I somehow have the ability to put a picture to the electromagnetic energy around me..

"Buried water, oil, metals, gemstones, grapes, et cetera, the act has no official science backing to it, but there are many wells for the people that swear by it. Empathy. This is the ability to feel understand and share the feelings of another person without the other person having described or spoken of said feelings an example would be to walk into a room in being able to read every once emotions around you as if it was written on their forehead without them ever having communicated with you. Precognition. This is related to clairvoyance, precognition clairvoyance is having the foreknowledge of an event. This is the most common held understanding of what a psychic is perceived ads. The ability to see the future. Psychokinesis, the ability to move objects by mental effort alone. Psychometry, the ability to discover facts about an event or person by touching inanimate objects associated with them. When government investigation teams wish to use people with the stability they will give them an object owned by, for example, a missing person, to get a sense of the energy of the missing person, so they may help direct the investigation team towards a missing person. Rachel cognition. This is related to clairvoyance. Retro cognition clairvoyance is the ability to have knowledge of a past event which could not have been learned or inferred by normal means. This may be the ability to understand and interpret remaining energy that is around you from long ago. Objects absorb radiation and can reradiate that same energy for years or even decades or centuries, some people have the ability to sense and interpret this energy. Telepathy, the ability to communicate thoughts or ideas by means other than the known senses, this coin of frequent use mainstream term, reading someone's mind. Many of these abilities border on the theory of what is known as quantum entanglement, which may play a strong part of psychic abilities and some people. This is a topic that I will discuss in an.

"What is quantum entanglement? Miriam Webster defines quantum entailment as a property of a set of subatomic particles whereby a quantum characteristic such as spin or momentum of one particle is directly and immediately correlated with the equivalent characteristic of the others regardless of separation space. The national library of medicine simplifies that by describing quantum entanglement as a phenomenon which entangled systems exhibit correlations that can not be explained by classical physics. How does quantum entanglement relate to parallel investigations? It is theorized by some scientists familiar with the topic that quantum entanglement is also a phenomenon that can occur between people. An example of this would be a mother who is miles away from her child, knowing that something is seriously wrong with the child even though she has not spoken with them. This could be a major health event, a car accident, a crime committed against some et cetera. Another example is a young person gets injured while playing with friends and their twin sibling who is in the mall with a parent shows some symptoms of feeling the pain from the injury of their sibling. Our nervous systems are big in tennis of energy. And it is theorized by some scientists that people who are very close to each other emotionally become bound to each other at the quantum level and can share emotions and be aware of strong emotions of each other even at a great distance. Someone who doesn't understand or is unaware of the concept of quantum entanglement could misinterpret the effects of quantum entanglement as paranormal activity. The human mind has the ability to do something called period dolia. Also known as matrixing. Our mind attempts to organize the chaotic. An example of this would be looking at the static on a television channel where there isn't any signal from a station. If you stare at the static, your brain may start to make you believe that you see figures of animals or objects that are more familiar to you in the static. Our mind tries to see patterns where there aren't any in order to make sense of the random, using images that we are more familiar with. If someone is experiencing quantum entanglement and isn't aware of the phenomenon, their mind and matrix the confusion into sounds or images or smells, which someone could interpret as paranormal in nature. I have personally had multiple cases of reported parallel activity that after investigating I came to the conclusion that I believe the perceived parallel activity was a situation of quantum entanglement between two or more people. While quantum entanglement between people has been studied by some scientists there is still much work to be done to conclusively proof theories. However, like most paranormal science we work off of theories and not undisputable, science fact. Quantum entanglement is another theory like many others that we may use to properly describe certain situations of perceived paranormal activity.

"Location each day of the schedule investigation. During those three to 6 hours we can obtain 12 to 24 hours of video surveillance to review three to 6 hours of audio evidence in any other evidence that we can collect. Upon arrival to the client's location, we will review the activity log that was complete at the lion's site and ask any pertinent questions if required. We asked the animals to be secured off site if possible as for both our safety and to minimize evidence contamination. If that is not possible, we ask that to be kept in location onsite that will minimize evidence contamination. We ask that as few people be on site as possible. But understand that for security and peace of mind that appropriate owner or their representative may wish to stay on site. We just asked that they remain in the control center to minimize investigation contamination. We will then ask the client for a full tour of the property so we can be shown where we May and may not go where activity has been occurring and perceived a concerns that we have to watch out for. The team will then decide where we wish to set up our control center where we will have our camera monitors and equipment staged. We will then begin the process of selecting where will be the optimum location for the setting up of our four near infrared wireless day and night vision cameras. They need to mean areas where they will best catch any paranormal activity, but also not in the way where they could be tripped over by a member of the investigation team. After the near infrared cameras are set up, we will tour the house taking base EMF readings of the entire property. We will note any above normal EMF readings. We do this using a device that is called a tri field meter. This device was designed to detect extremely weak direct current fields and ignore alternating current fields. It can also do a reverse. This is one device that will also find magnetic field variations. This device is sensitive enough to pick up readings as we get three volts per meter up to ten feet away. The device is also designed to filter out the earth's natural background radiation. Doing this task first in our investigation allows us to find high EMF readings that could be misperceived as or be causing or feeling paranormal activity. We will note any excessive readings analog. This also allows us to recognize any EMF spikes on the property as we will have a base reading to compare it against. During this time, we will also be walking around the property with a portable weather station which will give us base readings for temperature humidity and barometric pressure. While variations in eastern metrics is bound to happen during the course of an investigation, it may help explain if certain areas of the house have a heavy feeling which can be caused by humidity, barometric pressure and or EMF radiation..

"Paranormal investigation equipment. There was a plethora of equipment available in the market, some of his fairy valuable, some of it, I would not recommend. The equipment that my Washington valley spirit uses includes, and SSX two K wireless near infrared with DVR system. It allows us to monitor and record day, visual and night near infrared video and audio. Flir, far infrared thermal camera, TG two 6 7. It allows us to see in the far infrared spectrum for heat signatures, we are able to take still photos using this device. A full spectrum camera with infrared light. This mobile device allows us to extend the visual spectrum to see in the near infrared spectrum beyond our eyes ability taking both still photography and four K quality video. A zoom 360 H four N pro audio record. Due to the high sensitivity and amplification and record audio that is beyond the capabilities of reception by the human ear. It allows for live use, so we can plug in headphones and monitor the feet during usage. Rampage. It's an EMF and temperature sensor. It alerts us of electromagnetic air in our thermal flux in proximity to the device. Laser grade allows us to see if there's any type of movement in a dark room. Temperature, humidity sensor. It measures humidity and temperature to record rapid thermal humidity flux. There are also several pieces of equipment available in the market that we do not use at mount Washington valley spirit. A K two meter. Historically, some TV shows have shown this device to be a ghost, spirit detector. This device is an unshielded EMF meter that can be set off by anything from a cell phone renegotiating its connection to a tower, a two way radio down the street, Wi-Fi, a human or animal, static electricity, et cetera. Anything can set this device off. Therefore, making it unreliable to be used as seen on TV. The only benefit of this device is to use it to find EMF spikes from electric equipment. Ghost box, also known as Frank's box. This device is marketed to have the ability to communicate with entities by rapidly scanning the FM radial band. All it does is pick up bits and pieces of what radio stations are transmitting. Theoretically, how would an entity manipulate electronics to form words that it is intending to speak? Obelisk. This device is marketed as converting localized electromagnetic energy into words. There are even cell phone apps marketed for this purpose. I believe this device is for entertainment purposes only. Structured light sensor camera, SOS camera. It is also known as. This device is marketed as gathering electromagnetic radiation in giving it a visual representation as stick figures representing spirits of ghost. I would use this device or entertainment purposes only. It is new, and while an intriguing theory it doesn't have a practical purpose as an energy can be represented as a paranormal entity on this device.

"Paranormal investigation or go hunting. Is there a difference between paranormal investigation and go hunting? The two terms often use interchangeably, especially as it pertains to brain marketing TV shows or live paranormal events when a practice they are two different activities. Goals hunting is an act for entertainment purposes where someone or a group of someones visit a location in the hopes of seeing a ghost or spirit. Someone who partakes in this activity is known as a ghost hunter. Paranormal investigation is the act of researching and investigating the cause of perceived parallel activity in either confirming the existence of paranormal activity or explaining a non paranormal cause of the perceived paranormal activity. Paranormal investigators continuously educate themselves on the latest technology using investigations and the underlying principle of how the device operates. The continually research common and new theories into the cause of paranormal activity such as electromagnetic radiation, properties of various geological objects, quantum entanglement, physics, meteorology, parapsychology, other sciences, and they will research location history of where they are investigating. Someone who partakes in these activities is known as a pure no investigator. One is not better than the other, as they are two different activities, depending on your intentions, you may choose the recreational side or you may choose the more involved side of the field. You may wish to partake in both. As a paranormal investigator, I have gone on ghost hunts. They were not a client case. They were recreational events with colleagues in the piano investigation field where we didn't focus on the science or standard and investigative procedures. You may wish to be involved with one or both of these fields. Please visit us online at WWW dot mw sphere dot com. We can find our social media sites and blog.

"Paranormal preconceptions, a photographic orb, also known as backscatter is defined on Wikipedia as backscatter commonly occurs in low light scenes when the cameras flashes used. Cases include nighttime and underwater photography when a bright light source in reflective and focused particles are near the camera. Light appears much brighter very near to the source due to the inverse square law, which says light intensity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source. The small object is out of focus compared to the rest of the image giving a larger foggy reflective appearance in orbits caused by anything from dust, humidity, insects, pollen, pet dander, or plant life just to name a few. These particles may be free floating or resting upon the camera lens. These artifacts and photos are very common and very often misinterpreted as something paranormal due to misinformation that has been propagated over the years. A real electromagnetic based orb would be self illuminating and perceivable as an object free floating and projecting its own light, whether or not is in range of the electromagnetic spectrum that we are able to perceive with our eyes. One type of warp that would be visible to the naked eye that produces its own light would be one of plasma. There are four forms of matter as recognized by the scientific community. These swarms of matter are liquid, solid, gas, and plasma. A plasma orb will do very visible to the naked eye and would be very brief in tenure. Is it possible, paranormal activity to present itself in the form of an orb?

I had some cold brew coffee thinking it would pick me up and i know yet a it ain't but you got your hair done today you gotta hear my hair did. It is beautiful to be back on energizing you. Oh no it's given me the will to go on almost certainly. I'm no longer afraid of being seen. I've noticed as we are social and we see people that masks and very self conscious about my face. I'm not all right with his three. I i know where i am. You know i can pull off cute. And i'm like yeah. Okay that i anything. I still want to to go the dennis dillon. Get this tea stain. I know off that. I've been having to look at and zoom here that plagued me. I know i thought you were really going to do that. But no of anything. I will say this. I tweeted out version of this. A bit of a joke form but like the the of running into a casual acquaintance is back in baby. It's powerful baby is having my veins it is infecting every cell of my body Absolutely that's the one interaction that i've never mastered you know very at parties just like small talk and just like i'm good with with obviously with friends. I'm very good but it's like the casual acquaintance. I hate that interact. that's interesting. You say that. Because i was going to say that what you said. You were good at parties. Purdue remember when we talked about how you didn't know how to leave a conversation at a party. I'm wondering a little bit of that is happening when you run into someone on the street. It's all that. I'm good at a party up until the very end of the conversation but like so a casual acquaintance all. I don't know how to get out of this river. There's too much you know what it is. It's all gray area right because when you see a casual when you see a friend on the street you stop right. There's there's no bones about it. Stopped myself and i'm like that's a phrase right anyway. The point is you stop and you talk to them but when it's a casual acquaintance you're doing this calculus. Everyone's doing everyone's doing that. Mean where the equations are going on the background of the yeah right That's what's happening with everyone and you're trying to figure out. Should i stop and talk to this person. And they're trying to figure out that and you're trying to figure out how long interaction is supposed to go on and it's too much gray area. Yup th- and that's i do not flourish in gray areas might absolately that i am aware of shoots through the roof. In grey areas. A bear market for my anxiety is bear good or not good but like as bear when the stock market is doing. Well i thought it was bull market. It's broiler bear. But i don't know which is which who knows.

I like to say yes. We talked to one the only sydney washington. You may know her from her new podcast hobby. Hunter you may know her from her previous podcast unofficial expert. You may know her from her instagram. Show cooking with sid. Which is an unhinged wild ride. Where food is sometimes actually club but it is like so nice and this was very. It's funny because i'm always. I always assume the young black girls don't really like me like i'm very like old. Auntie energy them. And so. That's what i assume so. I'm always like i hope we can have a conversation but it was very very warm. It's always been very warm. Yeah i met her at when we did this show in the back of a bar in new york five years ago or something like that before we get into the show though I just wanted to read this. This isn't so a couple episodes ago we talked to our wonderful eliot glazer and we answered a question on that episode about someone is They're you know now that the world is opening back up again They decided they won't have sex for the first of the first time they're trying to get into a we okay and they asked our advice like if you were if you had a child and you were telling your the talk as they don't do whatever well i'm kidding. Well they wrote back to us. Now i love it an update i love it. I'm going to read right here. High previous caller sending a follow up. I'm the twenty seven year old. Who wanna have sex for the first time after the pandemic you guys actually answered my call the day right before i plan to do it. Oh my god see. That is the lord at work that serendipitous kismet. That is the lord that is higher guy was from tender. Did an instagram background check. I told him it was my first time. I initiated each step and felt in control the whole time two things. This sucker didn't have a single condom so nothing that we're involve a condom. Say there's plenty of. Is everything honestly. You should have for everything you should have gone. Wouldn't go to the store. You have gone when you are at the doctor right. You should have a condom when you're sitting on a park bench just like in naked gun one of the naked gun movies. He just wears a giant condom on his body. That's what you should be absolutely also. I felt nothing in all physically or emotionally the first time the entire time. Not for lack of trying a fund self ristic anthropological experience. Anyway fun anthropological voyeuristic anthropological experience. Well that's not sex. I don't know what is he was surprised. I was so calm about the whole thing. I'm going to keep trying with other people for variety but just wanted to send in the conclusion. And let you both know your interviewers and sweethearts thing only angel. That's nice very exciting. I'm glad it was like a neutral experience neutral exactly sex neutral. that's good not negative negative neutral neutral but not second. it's just neutral. I'm just gonna the sex was neutral. Sex was not negative which is which is great. You know especially you know. I love them saying like i initiated the whole way being direct and we love that for them as lacey. Moseley would say so. That's beautiful and i love a follow up guys. Well follow up la follow up now now that you know what's going on. We're all up to speed. Let's get into sydney washington. Roll.
