"weiss" Discussed on Mental Illness Happy Hour
"In the right place. I am here with Ali Weiss, who is a podcaster, blogger, would you say performer? Yeah. Yeah, I would say performer in my background is in the theater. But I am now a slave to the digital space. We do audio. We do video. I talk to myself to a camera, you know. All the forms. Allie has a podcast called tales of taboo and you guys get into some shit in that one. As I was listening to it and looking at the titles of the various episodes, we do a survey on the podcast called shame and secret survey, the anonymity is people filling them out online. But you have people, they're audio, people talking about having the portions. What are some of the other topics that oh my God, how much time do you have? It's crazy. You know, I always joke that every time I put out a casting, it's gonna be the one casting that nobody answers because it's too much. That has never happened to me in the entire history that I've been doing this show and the show that I was doing before that too before I rebranded. But I've spoken to drug dealers, addicts, employees of the wealthy, escorts, nightlife, bottle girls, abortions, as you mentioned, troubled teens who want to reform schools. I mean, it's just endless, you know? And the amount of trust that they put in me to have their voices on the show, despite the fact that they're obviously not including their names or their faces. It's really what gets me out of bed in the morning. Were you surprised and I'm just going to assume this, but were you surprised by the sense of meaning and purpose you discovered doing that? Yeah, I was. And don't let me put words in there. No, no, no, you're completely correct. I mean, it's been a really long journey for me to find a sense of purpose and granted, I'm still young, I'm 28, turning 29. And I think that I went through the same cycle that normal people in their 20s go through. You work a job. You don't like it, you find a new job, maybe you switch industries, maybe you go to grad school. I did that but entirely online. And through rebranding myself on Instagram and with my podcasts and the type of content that I was making. With my old show, health as hell, the concept was not entirely dissimilar from yours. I was talking to comedians and performers about their bullshit. But you know, pre-pandemic, it was really taboo for a woman, especially a privileged woman, to get on the mic and be like, I'm really fucked up. You know, I got demons, I got substance abuse issues. I got ADD, I have depression, I'm anxiety, post pandemic, all of us have everything. And it also got to the point where I felt as though I had overexposed myself. I was talking too much about myself and it was allowing people to form these kind of weird parasocial relationships with me where they didn't know what my favorite color was or what my favorite breakfast was, but they knew that I struggled with drinking, or they knew that I had had abusive relationships. I was like, okay, I think it's time to go in another direction. And I was so sick of talking about myself. I wanted everyone else to talk about themselves. And it's kind of become the cliche of just mining everything about yourself. And doing this podcast, I often struggle with where is the line between that because, you know, there are some people that I look at on social media and I'm just like, God, I wish your parents had given you a hug. Yeah. Motherfucker. I am embarrassed for you. I know. And I'm so afraid that I'm going to be or I am one of those people and don't know it. Right? It's tough because there is that expectation now for all of us to be sharing at least the perception of all of ourselves online to find an audience to connect with an audience. I mean, I think everybody who has any sort of public platform does struggle with where those boundaries are. But you know, it was interesting because I flipped the script and I didn't talk about myself at all for the majority of this show. But I started making solo episodes to talk about things that needed to be addressed. For example, I had a little bit of a conflict with barstool sports and I did an episode about sorority hazing and so I spoke out about my own situation getting kicked out of my sorority and then more recently about my abortion. But I came to realize that did you have your abortion in the middle of the sorority house and that's why they kicked you out? Exactly. They were like, get out of here, you dirty skank, plus I was a brunette and a Jew, and in Southern California, they were not used to any of that. And they were like, what were we thinking of doing you? But it's been this interesting on the topic of balance. I've come to realize that the more I speak out about myself, the more it inspires people to submit their confessions because they feel like they're going to be safe with me. And so I finally landed in this position where I'm learning, okay. It is safe for me to tell this story to take up an entire hour by myself. Because it's going to encourage other people to find the strength to do the same. So I have officially made it not the alley Weiss show. It's more like I contribute when I feel like I have something to say, but primarily it's about my audience. So if you're comfortable, talk about the abortion, it was a month ago. Yeah, it was really recently. It was a little bit over a month ago. I feel like there's no such thing as TMI on this show, so I'm just gonna go for it. I got my period again yesterday. And I can not tell you what a relief that was, just to know that I had officially come out on the other side. And have by scientific biological standards returned to normal. I got pregnant completely unexpectedly, and right away I was freaking out, not because of the pregnancy itself. And I also knew I was going to get an abortion right away. It wasn't a question. I'm not ready. But I was so afraid of what other people were going to have to say about it because of the fact that I'm age appropriate to have a child. I'm in a happy relationship. Meaning you're old enough as opposed to being a teenager. Yeah, yeah, you know, as much as I feel like a 16 in pregnant or like a child bride, I'm 28, turning 29 years old. There are tons of people who are like, this is the age where it's time to grow up. But I only moved out of my parents house, you know, less than a year ago. I had made the choice to stay with them to give me the freedom to travel throughout my 20s and create my weird show when, you know, spend my money on subculture parties and building the podcast and I sacrificed the freedom of living on my own to get that granted my parents live in a beautiful apartment in New York City, not bum fuck, and we have a great relationship. But there is definitely some Arrested Development. So now I live on my own, I'm totally financially independent. I'm in a serious relationship for the first time in four years. But because of that series relationship because of my age and because of the fact that I've been really transparent online about the background that I come from, having parents who are not only emotionally supportive, but financially, you know, for so many years. And if I needed them to be now, I was like, holy shit, people are gonna rip me to shreds. But I really went through a very introspective process as I felt an alien invading my body. I pregnancy did not suit me. I was really sick, nauseous, hormonal, mood swings, and instead of really focusing on the baby itself or the massive cells, let's call it itself. I couldn't stop thinking about, yeah, sure, people might say all these things about me, but someone in my position is actually the perfect person to be able to stand up and speak about this. Because speaking about my abortion is not going to lead me to lose my job. It's not going to get me ostracized by my community, disowned.

Joe Biden 'Confident' His Son Didn't Break the Law
"We're reaching a very interesting situation with regard to Hunter Biden because the question has been posed to Joe Biden about Hunter Biden and Joe Biden is essentially said a Hunter Biden did nothing wrong. Nothing unethical and number two Hunter Biden quote never made money in China. Wow. Never made money in China. Now these statements are flatly false. And yet The White House, this is the problem with being a Kate bedingfield or being a Jen Psaki, you are a sort of administration parent. And by that I mean of the administration and essentially set up is down or why it is black, you have to go out there and give reasons for why that's the case. So your job is essentially one of being the propagandist for the senile dotard and The White House. And so you've got The White House staff now essentially repeating with a straight face, Biden's brazen lies. And all of this is happening while there's an ongoing investigation by U.S. attorney David Weiss in Delaware and the media is reporting not only locally, but I've seen some national reports that Hunter Biden may well be indicted. Now, think about this. This is not only talk about this as a shock for The White House, a shock Phil Biden, well, not really a shock for Biden. Biden's shock is we got caught, what? A wall of protection somehow never worked. But think of the think of what a repudiation this would be of the media of The Washington Post, The New York Times CNN, all these people have been saying they've been first of all saying that the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation after that they said it's a non story, but I've been thinking about why The New York Times and The Washington Post have rushed to confirm the Hunter Biden laptop in recent weeks. And I think the reason is it's not because they are they've become journalistically honest momentarily. No, they're just the same deceitful snakes that they've always been, but they've realized if there's an indictment, this is gonna make us look
'The Silencing of the Lambs' With Author Michael Brown
"Michael Brown, my friend, welcome. Great to be with you, Eric. Thanks for the memories. You've got a great story, which we're not going to get into today. We've talked about that many times on the program before, but you have a new book out, and unfortunately it's very important. The book is titled the silencing of the lambs, the ominous rise of cancel culture, and how we can overcome it. So what do you say in the book, roughly speaking? There really is an attempt to shut us up to silence us to cancel us to marginalize us and to put us in a place where we can not speak up and get our message out. When I say us, I mean followers of Jesus with conservative biblically based values, I'm not paranoid about this. In fact, a large part of the book is strategies as to how we can overcome. But this is real. I mean, we're in a situation today where it's not just a matter of we disagree with you. But we have to cancel you out. You know, in China, we'll talk about someone with disappeared. They use it as a vowel. They were disappeared. They suddenly, they're not there anymore, or under Soviet Union. Some of this disappearance, they're blanked out. They're blotted out. That's what's happening in a different way. Barry Weiss has spoken up about this. She was in New York Times journalist, a liberal feminist quote, married to another woman and she found the atmosphere in New York Times for her to be so toxic that if you raise a narrative, you are not just criticized but you would cancel she called it social murder and it's so extreme now that you have voices like the irreverent atheist Bill Maher or reverend Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman or actors like Alec Baldwin or sports personalities like Dana White and they're all raising their voice against this Nick Cave singer songwriter in Australia said that cancel culture is mercy's antithesis. So you do one wrong thing. 15 years ago, something in your useful days. It comes out today. You can lose your
Russians Killed in Action Higher Than US Count
"The latest in Ukraine, this is from a military writer named Michael Weiss, whose work I've admired. He said the picture that shared with senior European intelligence officials differs from the U.S. government assessment, assessments, especially on Russian losses. From our estimate, the KIA killed an action figure on the Russian side, was anywhere from 7000 to 9000 a few days ago, according to the senior European official. That's much higher than the estimate that we have. Bad morale, lack of manpower, huge, he says on the Russian side, they're calling in reservists offering money and contract to people to go and fight. And they are relying on conscripts conscripts after they said they weren't going to rely on conscripts.

Why Are Bari Weiss and Bill Maher Getting All the Credit? Dave Rubin Explains
Christian Toto: Hollywood Creatives Are Being Left out Simply for Being White Males
"You know I read a piece this weekend I think you cited it on your social media feed or was it this weekend or less But I think it was by Barry Weiss on her sub stack but it was a different author And the gist of the piece was that this isn't just about actors you know Christian you and I think Hollywood like you say you think Scarlett Johansson and Brad Pitt and all these famous actors that's actually a very small sliver of Hollywood You got gaffers lighting people foley artists sound engineers I mean not all these people are died in the world liberals Matter of fact a lot of them believe in liberty and freedom like we do And the gist of the piece was that these writers and script writers that they're being subjected to these de facto racial quotas and you've got a bunch of middle aged basically white men who've done nothing wrong of dedicated themselves to the crap submitting scripts and stuff and being told straight out Christian they're not hiding it Hey sorry man We've got to hit some kind of quota for black minority LGBT or artists and writers and you're not it I mean that's the textbook definition of discrimination right there It is it's a great article I recommend everyone check it out to Barry Weiss's subsect page And I have some of that in my book as well I've also recently spoken to a comedian he's a straight white comedian very funny fellow and he played me an audio clip that he saved from one of his agents or reps basically saying you're a white male I can't do anything for you I'm so sorry It's happening It's real And part of this is Hollywood has done a terrible job of being diverse in the past I think the shame they have is real And they should have some guilt But this is a massive overcorrection It should be about the artistry and gifts and talents of the creators not the skin color So let everyone on board Any minority any group if you've got a great story a screenplay you're a great actor We want you That's what it should be Not this we've got to overcorrect and just an absurd way That's
Has America Become a Country of Cowardice?
"Here, reading to you from Barry Weiss about what is happening in this country. The we got here because of cowardice we get out with courage. And she gives examples here. People fired. The Vermont school principal fired because she said she supports black lives, but not the organization Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter is a hate organization. If you support it, you support hatred in this country. Undiluted, left wing, Marxist hatred. Okay, period. Everybody knows that. No, not everybody. Most people know that. Most people know much of what the left stands for is a lie. But you can't say it. I say it. Just as I say that it is better to have natural immunity than to get a vaccine. I've never said people shouldn't get a vaccine and lied about. I was lied about in The Washington Post in the CNN play for you to see and then way of Chris Cuomo's way of distorting what I said. Lying on CNN comes so naturally that I don't even believe they're aware of the fact that they lie. And I will play it for you. This is what this is what we have entered. So she gives example another one of the Hispanic utility worker in San Diego fired because somebody said made a white supremacist hand gesture. He was in fact cracking his knuckles out of his car window. You're guilty. If one person on the left says you're guilty. In this ideology she continues Barry Weiss. The quality of opportunity is replaced with equality of outcome as a measure of fairness. If every one doesn't finish the race at the same time the course must have been defective. Thus the argument to get rid of the SAT. Or the admissions test for public schools like stuyvesant in New York or Lowell in San Francisco. In this ideology you are guilty for the sins of your fathers. In other words, you are not you. You are only a mere avatar of your race or your religion or your class.
Bari Weiss Is the Type of Democrat That Used to Exist in America
"Are the people on television at all ever self aware at the damage they're doing to American society will Barry Weiss is one of the few that deserves to be platformed. Again, I don't agree with her on everything. In fact, I'm sure that if we have different views on abortion, in different views on transgender stuff. In different views on I don't know, pick your certain issue. I'm sure that I'm much more strict on immigration than she is. Whatever. But she believes in something that will help keep this country alive for the time being. She believes in something virtuous. Freedom of speech dialog differences of opinion. Individual initiative, she believes in liberty. Barry wise is the type of Democrat that used to exist in this country. Very wise is the type of Democrat that used to say, you know what I agree to disagree. You might have a difference of opinion, but I'll still allow you to speak. She is different than Brian's Brian stelter, who's the type of leftist that we're gonna have to encounter ten at University of Vermont, where at University of Vermont, they say, oh, we disagree with you. Therefore we want to shut you up. Barry Weiss would say, I disagree with Charlie. Let's see what he has to say. It's a completely different approach.
Bari Weiss Quit the New York Times, But Hasn't Drifted Into Obscurity
"Barry Weiss That is that goes without saying a lot of you say of course. But even just saying that the world has gone mad, is now a controversial statement according to CNN. Barry Weiss is a former New York Times reporter. She's smart. She's tough. She has a really good sub stack. If you don't know what substack is, it's a rather interesting decentralized platform is that one way to put it where you kind of get people you can kind of get what they're saying as they say it and support them. I got her emails. I don't agree with everything she says. She kind of strikes me as kind of an old school moderate liberal, but she's really courageous, and she speaks about issues that matter and she now has a new article that has come out this last week that is making the rounds. I want to read from it. Where she wrote about how the whole world has gone woke and has lost their minds and she says, why are moms like me being called domestic terrorists? She reposted this article from Maude meran. She says this, quote, she quotes, I am a mother of four a criminal defense attorney and a lifelong liberal who is deeply concerned about the direction of New York City public schools. I've been outspoken about my views, along with an untold number of frustrated parents. For that, the FBI is considering using the Patriot Act against me. Let me explain. Last month national schoolboard association and umbrella organization representing thousands, thousands of local elected school board officials, sent a letter to President Biden. The letter in poured The White House to enlist support of Homeland Security FBI Department of Justice to investigate the threat adding that the alleged crimes fall under the purview of the Patriot Act in regards to domestic terrorism. Barry Weiss has covered a variety of different issues from why people are suing UCLA for not wanting discriminating against their students and she's kind of getting a reputation as a former New York Times reporter as someone who's actually willing to tell the truth. Someone who is willing to speak clearly and courageously.
Bari Weiss Owning CNN's Brian Stelter Is 2 Minutes of Pure Television Gold
"So Brian stelter, asbury wise kind of like, oh, Barry wise, you say the world has gone mad. Why do you say the world has gone mad and she owns stelter to his face. Very Weiss. Is able to say so clearly, here's why the world has gone mad. Why are you not doing anything about it? And then he challenges his, oh, well, it's not like you're not allowed to say those things. Play Barry Weiss, some of the most beautiful two minutes on television of CNN being called out to their face. By the way, this is a moderate liberal. She is not a conservative, she's not a leftist, this is someone who's on the center left who worked for The New York Times. Listen. You write, there are tens of millions of Americans who aren't on the hard left or the hard right who feel the world has gone mad. So in what ways has the world gone bad? Well, you know, when you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for The New York Times, talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad. When you're not able to say out loud and in public that there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad. When we're not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting and it is bad. And that silence is not violence, but violence is violence, the world has gone mad. When we're not able to say that Hunter Biden's laptop is a story worth pursuing the world has gone that, when in the name of progress, young school children as young as kindergarten are being separated in public schools because of their race. And that is called progress rather than segregation, the world has gone mad. There are dozens of examples that I could share with you in which you often say you say a lot of knows this. And you say we're not allowed to lose the people stopping the conversation. Who are they? People let work at networks, frankly, like the one I'm speaking on right now who try and claim that, you know, it was racist to investigate the lab leak theory. It was. But I'm just saying, when you say a loud, I just think it's a provocative thing to say, you say, you say, we're not allowed to talk about these things. But they're all over the Internet. I can Google them. Everywhere. I've heard about every story you mentioned. So I'm just suggesting, of course, people are allowed to cover whatever they want to cover. But you and I both know and it would be delusional to claim otherwise that touching your finger to an increasing number of subjects that have been deemed third rail by the mainstream institutions and increasingly by some of the tech companies will lead to reputational damage, perhaps you losing your job. Your children sometimes being demonized as well. And so what happens is a kind of internal self censorship. This is something that I saw over and over again when I was at The New York
Bari Weiss Tells Brian Stelter How 'the World Has Gone Mad'
"The hour, want you to hear there's some pretty powerful exchange between bari. Barry Weiss, this is pretty interesting story. She was once one of The New York Times is top writers. But as registered points out, she was harassed and bullied by other employees of the highly woke New York Times. She finally resigned. And then she spilled the beans on The New York Times toxic work environment, and the complete intolerance of non left wing thought. She's not a conservative, but she just does not somebody more of an independent writer as I understand it. So listen to this exchange she had with Brian stelter over the weekend on CNN. You know, when you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for The New York Times talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad. When you're not able to say out loud and in public that there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad. When we're not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting and it is bad. And that silence is not violence, but violence is violence, the world has gone mad. When we're not able to say that Hunter Biden's laptop is a story worth pursuing the world has gone that, when in the name of progress, young school children, as young as kindergarten, are being separated in public schools because of their race.

"Have Sitting with me here in the studio the author of a book funny title. It's free as a jew. A personal memoir of national self liberation ruth weiss. Welcome to this program. Thank you i. I really can't just start talking to you. Because i have to let people know with whom i'm seated and Who is the author of this book. You have an extraordinary life. We're going to talk about your life But you won the national humanities medal. Which is an extraordinary honor. Utah yiddish literature at harvard for a couple of decades. And as you approach your eighty sixth birthday. I too am approaching my eighty six birthday forgiven. I can't see it as clearly as you can. But you've decided to write a book which is a a memoir. But it's called free as a jew. We should start there. Why is it called that. And then i want to get into your story I should have a soundbite. Answer for it but i haven't yet. Maybe this will get me there I love freedom. it's It's a very great value of mine. And i love being a jew and the two things are very much connected in my mind. I think there's a kind. There's an idea of freedom that comes with being a jew and You know this is not a moment when the jews are particularly popular not an american culture as they used to be once and So i i wanted to lead with that. And it's also because writing the memoir. I didn't myself. No what would emerge as being the most important theme or the most important connective through it. So free as it begins for me. You know in childhood with The most important part of our jewish year And that is the celebration of passover and the reading of the passover haggadah every year. Now i didn't grow up in a very religious family but somehow my parents Kept the passover holiday in the way that some people latch onto one thing in their religious lives in their national lives. That is so strong that it almost makes up for everything else. And the passover holiday was like that and it's all about
Professor Ruth Wisse Explains Why Liberals Are Less 'Pro-Israel' Than Conservatives
"I'm talking to ruth weiss ruth. I'm gonna play the role of eric. You play the role of ruth. You've written this book. Free as jew. You have a background teaching at harvard. you eventually became a conservative. You are pro israel. I think that needs to be said. Why is it. I get the impression that religious jews conservative. Jews are pro israel. Liberal jews tend almost to be pro palestinian or very worried about israel In the way that the harvard faculty was worried about the rotc. Well i mean well the connection you're making is exactly right. I think Why is that. well. I don't put it so much as pro israel that i cannot for the life of me understand how any decent human being could be anything but pro israel. The great question is why did the arab world Why did the arab league organiz in nineteen forty five against the state of israel. You tell me and why. I have my theories. Well i have many theories. I wrote a book about that too. Actually called jusin power Trying to explain anti semitism. And which i define as the organization of politics against the jews and my sense is that you always have to look at the function of anti semitism. Who does it serve. And what purposes does it serve and it seems very clear that the only glue of the arab league in nineteen forty five was common opposition to the state of israel and that's still in some profound terrifying way.

Childbirth in the 19th Century
"Mid nineteenth century didn't have anything close to what we would consider modern medicine. The germ theory of infection still didn't exist and many medical professionals still believed in things like my asthma's and humor's and would prescribe things like bloodletting patients also at this time. The mortality rate for women in childbirth was significantly higher than what it is today. The primary cause of death was something called peripheral fever also known as child bed fever. It was a disease that would strike women within days of giving birth and it often lead to raging. Fevers putrid pus. Admitting from the birth canal open sores in the abdomen and finally sepsis and death. The maternity wards at hospitals at this time in europe were primarily for lower class women and often prostitutes the deal. Was that women who came to the hospital. Could receive free care but their care would usually be overseen by students as it was a training hospital. When someone weiss arrived at vienna general it had to separate maternity wards. That were run quite differently. One ward was run by male doctors and the other ward was run by female midwives however the outcome in the two wards were radically different. The word with the doctors had a mortality rate. That was five times. That of the ward the midwives. The reputation of the doctors ward was so bad that women would often cry and plead not to go there and there were some that would hold off on their arrival so they could give birth in the street as if they gave birth in route to the hospital. They could get the same benefits as if they gave birth in the hospital. Shockingly women who gave birth in the street had a lower mortality rate than those who gave birth in the doctor's ward

"Replaced the question. Well the i mean. Obviously john and barry do come up right away. Who thinking of. I got nothing like what i what i generally run into us to ask this question. Because specifically on the the black lab was like who is the the black representative for for pop culture and people could say maybe a rapper. Here their bus ie it's from baltimore anthony us from baltimore the basketball. Yeah it's like in terms of like the the breakout pop culture. Success is nobody really liked immediately comes to mind unfortunately saying there are some great filmmakers from baltimore that i would know as somebody who really follows a guy named matt porterfield who i absolutely love. There's a guy named theo anthony. Who's absolutely amazing. He's gonna blow up but they're certainly not household names. Edward norton is a great actor but he's stopped acting. Unfortunately josh charles is another one by man it's This he's right now for possible. Alleged hidden runs. And he's not want to. I don't i don't really have the answer. The question i was like. Who do you. If i was still a huge galls me of course but my ego is just so miniscule these days though now but yeah i think that's the thing and i think it's important that i think a lot of people leave. I think that's part of that. Issue is and true. It's like being an analyst or critical thinking exercise. You do the five wise and it's like why are people leaving this reason. Why is it that reason and so on until we get to. The root of it and especially with some people have interviewed different artists. And so on. It's like well. I could do better here or i could do better here. What have you always come back. But they usually don't and that's the thing for me when it comes to the pop culture thing. 'cause i reached out to a guy wanted to get this custom fitted cap. And he's like in terms of congress. What's baltimore and i was like. I am not putting a crab benefited gap and he had these really cool. New york has all of these different pieces of iconography and pop culture a representations and i was like you don't really have anything it's already going to be oriole's hat. What can i put on synonymous with baltimore. That really gets us over. That looks cool. And i always run into that especially being here as long as i have. It's like what's the thing we poppin know what you're thinking about like people who have left like you take somebody like t t the artist right like just when she was starting to sort of blow up in baltimore. She moves to the west coast. You know and chief. G made him a great movie about club music in baltimore to ban. Animal collective work which kind of bums me out. Riley you see them as like being described as a brooklyn band and it's like baltimore on the other hand beach house moved to baltimore but yeah it is. It is depressing when our best and brightest move onto the coast because so much is happening here in baltimore. I always i grew up in new york actually And the one thing i love about baltimore is that you can really do it here. Like anything you wanna do. You can do it here if you wanna put on clay you can put on a play if you want to go to a poetry slam and read poetry reader poem you can do that. And it's accessible and away and you can make a name for yourself here in baltimore which i absolutely love. But some of you want to move beyond baltimore. Why would you wanna do that. But if you intend to leave baltimore naked bugs. Yeah yeah so same. And i'm glad we have that inherited some. Maybe something for for people kinda growing really consider so thank you please shamelessly plugged. Where could he find you. Club the social media plug baltimore magazine all the good stuff i think i feel like i have already but i will say okay. Baltimore magazine. com is is the magazine's website tons of new content all the time including my movie reviews. Are there but better. Still subscribe to the magazine. It's so cheap to subscribe a cost like twelve bucks each individually. She was five ninety. Nine twelve issues for twelve bucks. So think about that it really. If you pick up the magazine twice a year ahead and subscribe It's nice to have the the object of the magazine in your hands but we should check checkout baltimore magazine dot com and then Yeah you can check me out on social media on twitter on at max.

"The difficult thing about being a film critic is you're watching bill extra closely right mean you have to. Because you're going to be writing about it and telling other people about why they should or shouldn't watch it So that's sort of close read of the film if you will and you're taking all these different things into account the direction and the cinematography in the acting in the everything but you also want the film to wash over you just the way you would if you were going in not as a critic just as like some person off the street watching the movie the to me. The true are of film. Criticism is finding that balance. We could really appreciate the film. I always say on the terms that the film is you know putting out there but then also you're able to have that extra level of analysis where you can write about it and think about it. I've definitely had people say to me about reviews like you know what he took. It so seriously lightened up. It's like that's my job. You know you can go. Just lighten up and have thought but my young actually take this film seriously but that being said there were definitely some films that are just meant to be silly. Edible film is successfully silly. then it's a success rights. I think of the name of the full feral movie that was on netflix. About the euro. Visions down jesse. Nah okay. so that's a really silly outrageously silly film but done so well and it. It's job is to make you laugh. Its job is to make you happy. It's intentionally silly and it's successful at that so it's really just a matter of like. Is the film doing what it set out to do. It is doing well. And then the next thing i this sort of acknowledged by owed biases that i'm personally drawn to or not personally drawn to. Sometimes i'll say like you know. I'm not really the biggest fan of say Superhero movies with dr size. Think is either stink here German middle aged woman. Give me a break air. All but then. Sometimes i'll see one. I'll say like Even if you think you're not gonna like this kind of movie you will or if you love this kind of movie. You're definitely gonna love this if you don't you probably won't like it. You know what i mean more. Even if you love this kind of movie you may not like is what because it's just bad so i really do try to sort of also thinking terms of the of the reader You know like definitely make it. Clear like yeah. This isn't really my bag but if it is you might like it. But even better is what i say. I am not really a fan of you know like let's just say on reviewing get might take. I don't really love horror film. It's certainly not my favorite genre but even if you think you hate horror film this is important amazing film that needs to be seen about what your tasted film it so that was really fun when you can do that. I think it's certain by pieces of culture that you like it. I remember it was a specific is music. But i remember a specific reviews. A guy only reviews like metal and alternative rock and they had him review rap. Almost almost he's not qualified. Sonically sure but this is not his john so already it's baked in and it's like have that disclaimer. That this is not my thing. And i will say i i. I'm a i'm data analyst by trade so definitely you know the analytical thing where you were speaking my language there and sometimes when i'm watching a movie and i finally i have this like contrary and kind of vibe to it and it's like let me get did. Let me put that aside. Leave that outside of the theater. I was out of my seat. But sometimes when i'm watching a movie and if this just okay that was not good. That was loose like something technically speaking. It's like i had this term. I like to thrown around call. Lucy and i was like look. This does not work. Because i get a lot of flack of about in terms of like superheroes for sake of argument. A lot of flack about like Like anther and it's like oh well. You can't say that. I was like well. I am and i'm going to say it twice now. I didn't like elements of that third act. It doesn't make me kill the entire movie. But it's like i'll point out specifically what i don't like what i think could have been could have been different than what it would have been more effective but going back to what she said. And i think that's something that people really need to key in on on on is. What is the movie trying to accomplish. What is the movies out to do if this is just a ridiculous movie and it's a goofy movie and you're not into those. Why go because that's what the movie is attempting to be. So you already not gonna like it or have these biases towards it then sometimes for me as a critic i consider myself a feminist. And someone's i'll see something in a film that i find sexist or perpetuating negative female stereotype or even negative male stereotype so then the question becomes. What is my job as a critic. I'll give you a perfect example. Is a film out right now. Called nobody it. Stars bob odenkirk now on a certain tribal level. This is a john. Wick esque film. Actually loved john wick but not as good but but similar in terms of like just a guy kicking. But if you're going to enjoy watching guy kicking. But for especially bob voting urban sort of playing against type to a certain extent. And he's a great actor but when i watched this film to it was sort of really leaning into toxic masculinity in a way that i found really troubling so certainly written a reviewer i was like yeah let kick ass action films. This is nobody the film for you instead. I kind of broke down. Why the i found the film had toxic masculinity and why. I think that's something that people should be aware of cautious of. It's a destructive force in the universe. Of course inevitably. I got some rush back on the review. I got some people calling me a killjoy. And stuff like that but you know i kind of feel like you're still aren't as many women. There are many more but they're obviously you know three four times as many men who are writing reviews right now. I do think it's important for a woman to give that perspective. Although i would think guy would also want to resist against toxic masculinity but it is just finding that balance sometimes. Because you don't want to be the gold you don't want to be. The person used the kill joy. You know so i kind of made it clear in the review that this film is going to really appeal to teenage boys. Do better teenage boy do that back. I mean if you go in there. Like i read a review about about that somewhere and it was like in terms of tears john wick at a much higher level in atomic blonde is at a higher level than this. This is is fine. And he didn't go to in-depth in it but it was just like like let's say a thirty second review kind of thing. It was like we're going to be very brief here. It's like not as good as these other to like in the same like it kind of but not as good as these other two fine by and also a fellow that really would benefit from being seen in a theater. You know i mean i. Obviously i used as a film critic. I tend to see to at least two films a week I used to see them in theaters. And i really do miss going to a theater and i also think about that as a critic.

"I'm your host. Rob lee and today's guest is the editor in chief of baltimore magazine and a film and pop culture critic. We have max weiss. Welcome to the podcast for having me so we were talking before we got started with this. And i just wanted to talk about what you do. Which background is in a very like high level like have you. What's your background looks in. Which will work is with baltimore magazine. Yeah so i actually didn't go to journalism school and didn't really even know that i wanted to be journalists. Necessarily i always knew. I wanted to write and i also love to sort of analyze things in college. I went to bennington college this little. Rt liberal arts school in vermont with six hundred students and i majored in literature and music as a double major play cello as well. And then when i graduated school we moved to baltimore. My family and i ended up getting a job at city paper and so my first real job was city paper. Used to have that mammoth calendar. Do you remember that thing. Salon ages and ages and ages while i basically put that thing together. That was a bitch. That was a lot of word kid out of out of college. So i did that for awhile and then a paper. They eventually hired me as a staff writer and i was doing. I did feel started. Doing film reviews. I actually had always really wanted to do fill review because it combined my love of analysis which is something that i really honed as literature major. You know like breaking down a text with my love for pop culture and film which I've just always naturally had. When i was a kid and this was before your time but there was the show siskel and ebert it. Was these these two guys you know. Like sort of Sweaters and corduroys in empty theater arguing back and forth about movies and remarkably the show. Was that a big hit right. And that was the famous two thumbs up and was through them. That i kind of realized a risk can be like a job and i would always imagine myself arguing. Who do i agree with. What point of view. I tape so so i really fell in love with criticism through that and also on my parents had a new yorker magazine's in the house in the great pauly jail. I was inspired by her writing the liveliness of her voice so one of the city paper and the opportunity came up for me to do criticism because they regular critic at the time. Could make a screening. I jumped at the chance. And i did a good job with it and they just kept giving me more and more. So that's sort of became one of my major side gigs. And then also you paper. I started doing a column now. This was the nineties right. Okay so this was before the internet or the internet was very nascent at the time so it existed but it was in its very early stages and the the column that i did was called nice girl and i always say that it was blogging before blog. Basically it was just my diary. Life is a twenty something in baltimore Ends about city paper as loved working at citi paper. And i'm actually really sad. City paper has now folded. I think that an alternative newspaper is so important to the fabric of the city. So son right now like you open up the baltimore sun. I have tons of ad for me. Admiration for a lot of the people who work there but A lot of it is from associated press tribune in its local reporting. And so you know we really disc that truly locally based reporting anyway so then. I got a job at baltimore magazine. It was almost like i graduated from city paper. Which is like more of a college kid kind of aesthetic to baltimore magazine. Which was like a grownup ghastly. Definitely and it's i really was a writer of always been a writer but one thing if you talk to somebody who's in editor. They always start out as a writer. all right. all editors start writers. And if you wanna move up what they call the mass ted of a publication you sort of you start as a writer then you become an associate editor. Then you become a senior editor of you. Become a managing editor and vitaly. Now i've reached the top of at a jeep and yes. I've been in the magazine for almost twenty years. I know it's crazy. It's been there. I mean i have my life basically you know and you know i really love doing and Really proud of the evolution of the magazine in the years. That i've been been there particularly in the years that i've been in charge and i have this amazing staff small staff but just so talented that works with me and Yeah we create the the magazine that you see today. It has really changed a lot like if you were to baltimore magazine. Ten years ago it was all what we call service journalism which is tough this top. That top jams top salons tom. You know restaurants at everything we still do some of that but we do a lot more a substantive journalism as well I mean i like it. All right. I think the what i what i opened up another city regional publication in a different city. I wanna know about the lifestyle. I wanna know about the restaurants i wanna know about the arts and the culture and that i wanna read long reads pieces that you could really dive into and learn more about the fabric of the city into. Hopefully we have that good balance going at baltimore magazines. Don't we try to do one of the few magazines. I read and definitely is one of those things i use the biggest seen like i know what i'm talking about because when it comes to specifically the food the food side of things like the food journalism and okay. I'm gonna keep stay up to date on this. Was this new place. Oh this issue came up and people. Think i'm the person that knows where all the food places are like. Thanks agassi i my sources. The food is amazing in baltimore. And there's just so much that you can write about it because there's so much diversity in the fruit scene and it tells you so much about the culture and who we are as as people here in baltimore. It's grown in leaps and bounds. I mean it used to be like couldn't get a good bagel in baltimore. You couldn't get a good loaf of bread. You couldn't get good at you know sushi. Thai food korean food is just so much great food out there now. So so it's really fun for us to cover that scene in I think the term. But i do consider myself a foodie so i've seen a few different so so putting on your critic had on what are maybe two to three skills that you rely on the most as a critic and i kind of i think you touched on a little bit. You jerk the curtain a little bit there. When it came to jazz the the side of it being personality already is a writer and already has an interest in like breaking things apart but still had a bit yeah.

"Good morning everyone out there in the sales success community. This is david weiss with a continuation of my head pick series and today. We are on paper process. So the reason why med pick exists. Verse medic is that there is an added. P for med pick because there is a distinct difference between a business process that decision process encompasses and a legal process. Where is the reason for. The the reason for that is lawyers. And god bless them. Do not care about the business. Wants they care about protecting the business again. Enterprise risk so just because you're buyer says. Hey we want this where we want. Now we to live media. This is amazing while the lawyers are like well that's nice but what about security. What about compliance. What about you know data. What about you know this. What about that. What about deputy in warranty and all the things that go into a legal contract and there could be a huge difference between when a deal where new deal will close when it actually closes and if anyone out there has ever committed to their boss boss boss. Whoever saying i'm getting this deal this month. Raise your hand out there. Virtually have you ever had it not come in when you said it would. I'm sure you have so have i. And that is why paper process important. It's because it allows you to actually commit and unless you know the paper process you cannot commit a deal you can't you don't know the details needed and you will likely be wrong so the purpose of a paper processes to understand all the legal components that go into it so those are things like today about inside or outside counsel. I'll tell you right. Now if they have outside counsel of the deal is gonna take longer to sign. I remember deal that i worked. That took over two months because outside council decided to write all thirty pages rewrite all of them to their verbiage just so they could build because they get paid by the hour so understand inside outside counsel understand how busy they are no when they when they've we've done deals like this in the past..

I'm also going to try and have a little bit of fun with our sponsors throughout. Let's do this. Here's david weiss. Hello everyone out there in the sales success community. This is david weiss. And i. I'm going to be doing a series on med pigs so look for d. Dd coming out as individual tips here in the future. So what is med pick. Med pig is not a sales process. Med pick is enterprise checklist. The thought around medpay you ask yourself do. I have a financial business case driven by metrics line to an economic buyer to understand company's decision process in decision criteria. Do understand the paper process legal process that they're going to go through have identified pain. I built champions in the competition. You ask yourself those questions on every deal. You rank yourselves. Red yellow green red. Don't know the information yellow. No some of the information but it has not been verified by the customer green. I know it all. It's been verified. Lockstep done your job is to get all of those letters to greene. When you do i see. People have a eighty to ninety percent close ratio. I see people have a ninety plus percent accuracy on their forecast. Personally i've seen teams that deploy med pick to acts their revenue. I've seen individuals two to three x or more their revenue i've seen people to ex their close ratios so mad pick. Why do it. It's super easy like literally you can look at a deal. ask yourself those questions and understand your gaps. It just works. It is the foundational element every deal. If you look at buying selling anything you can med pick it. I mean seriously. It is like just the building blocks of all deals all deals should have some sort of impact. Some deals need to be bought. My someone somebody has a decision process in buying something. They have a criteria. The looking for there is often some sort of paperwork involved. there is pain involved. There's often somebody that can influence somebody else as a champion. and there's always competition including of course status quo. So if you think about that. That is the foundation of deals. Doesn't matter what you're selling those apply so it applies.

"Monday Wednesday and Friday for the next three weeks. Here's David. Morning everyone out there and sales success community. This is David Weiss and I am going to be doing a little mini series here on Med pick focused on tips to execute med pick better. So I one today first letter of Med pick metrics. So folks who don't know what metrics are. They are the levers, the business case numbers or improvements that we all claim that we can help organizations. So, that's you know, for instance, booking more meetings, filling positions, faster less downtime. Yada, Yada the percentages of around those are metrics. So here's my tip if you haven't listed out every metric that your business improves. Do that. Then find customer stories. With realistic improvements. So let's just take more meeting set and more opportunities booked. So say those were two metrics. I would then find to customers where we help them book ten percent more meetings and five percent more opportunities or thirty percent more opportunities are what present at whatever more opportunities. So that would be the first two steps then put together a list of questions you need to ask. To figure out those metrics and that could be a simple as, hey, what is your average number of meetings booked per week per person right now or what is your close ratio on your opportunities or you know how much revenue is a a normal person generate or Yada Yada? Yada. So you build all those questions. Now. I want you to go and build your financial impact template. So what that looks like current state left hand side here are all the metrics that you impact. In. The middle. Here are the average. Improvements that we get. Then current state client. What are their metrics today against? The questions that you're asking. then. Future State you look at the Delta, what is the gap? So now we are saying your current state, you have a five percent here ten percent here twenty percent here are strictly speaking our customers get a ten percent here twenty percent here fifty percent here improvement. The gap is five, ten, twenty percent on each of those metrics then you work on quantifying can we agree that I'm going to improve this by five percent? Yes. Would that mean your business if we if we can this many more meetings set this may more opportunity generate this much more revenue per person you do whatever your tr your solution tries to accomplish what it would mean if we pulled that lever that much. That's it. You put that together in a single document with some words around here's current state. Here's future state how we're GONNA get get you there in. Here's the financial impact statement on one page with a clear you know cost Roi. That's how you leverage the heck out of metrics.

"I'm wondering if you could describe the ways that Madonna has served as a model for you through each phase of your life from when you were growing up to as you were as you were moving into your professional career, and the now as you are trying to gain the new directions for this established company, and it's funny that I. Always Talk About Madonna's being my. You know my my my secret mentor, you know the first time I saw Madonna and what was the League nineteen eighty-three blew my mind of the coup. Is this woman? She looked difference. He was expressive. She moved to new. York City like I was a sesame street. Fanatic? She Got Sesame Street. She was dancing. She was dressed differently and I was in my twelve year old eleven year. Old Man was enthralled with Madonna. But Rachel didn't just admire Madonna for her bold fashion choices or her exciting dance moves. She saw more than that. She really identified with her as a self made woman. And, look at people like Madonna and I think wow that her mother died. She didn't have everything on a silver platter for her to move to New York City on off a bus I look at women who are like that, and and have despite the odds, and despite the financial support to get things started have just gone for it, and those are women and I really relate to. Rachel tried to model herself after everything that she's on Madonna. She was a creative powerhouse. He was a clean of reinvention. She was a bad ass. Businesswoman I specifically remember reading an article and interview with Don I. Don't know what year and I don't know. When sometime in the late eighties early nineties talking about how Madonna made point to study the masthead of every magazine to know every editor to know who she needed to know as networking opportunity for her to build her career I still remember reading than I thought. This woman is not only has an artistic vision. She Has a vision of how she wants to establish herself as independent business. And I always remember reading that and thinking. It's not just about talent. It's also about being very specific in the choices and the people and the community that you have around you to get to that point of where you want to be. And then also Madonna is you know is a woman of reinvention I mean the thing I like about Madonna and always inspire me. She makes him like major mistakes, right? She just keeps going and I always admire women who you know, make a mistake. Admit it and just go, and she has done that her entire life I mean I remember when when I was in college in that crazy sex book came out, and she got a lot of backlash for that, but she was you know she came back. What do you think we can take from her example of trying to control our own narrative? She she has done. She has she has been strategic. She is identified who she wants to speak with. She's identified what it is that she wants to say. Even in the current moment where things are very tumultuous, people groups who have been far more marginalized than her finally being heard. So, what can we take from her example of owning our own power? I think that you've got to surround yourself with people that you feel good about and relationships change and. Being very self, aware and aware who's around you I, think is important as a lifelong message. I never talked about Madonna this. What would you do if you actually met her? Would you ever want to meet her? There's this whole thing about not meeting your her. Once at a party briefly at a it was a artist. David. Lachapelle and my friend was there and she was there and it was crazy. He's like and I turned around and he goes Oh. Do you know Madonna and we were I and the thing. Thing about myself and Madonna were the exact same height, so we were items like nice to meet you. And then I blacked out I froze I don't remember anything after that. It was so exciting it was. It was the one moment I had really nothing to say. That's pretty extraordinary. Did she meet your expectations? I thought she'd always seemed taller, but she was exact height. I two I. was kind of amazing. I can hear the smile in your voice. That was obviously a moment that was a great moment of excitement meeting Madonna and also disagreed time when you're young and optimistic in New, York City. On the. Party. Chose or anything else that you want to say about Madonna or her. Any other aspect that we've talked about you don't feel that we really. Delved into I. WanNa talk about you know a piece of advice that my grandmother gave me that I always think about at least once or twice a week, and her motto us. Wherever you go, you take yourself and I think about that wherever you are in your life or whatever your job is or whatever it is you want to do try. You are at the heart of that and doesn't matter where you live doesn't matter you know what your job is. You are the center of. Your future and that's something you cannot change. That's the one thing you cannot change. Is that you are you? Are you and I often think about that very philosophically Rachel? Thank you very much, thank you. To find out more about Rachel White.

"Ingram today my good friend David Weiss from. Adp is back with some more goodness happy Friday everyone. This is David Weiss with a tip of the day so as many of you know and some of you reach out to me to discuss various things going on in your lives. I recently had someone reach out to me about a topic that they were struggling with and this was a person that had tons and tons of success in their sales career. But they'd slump and so I started talking to this individual and one of the first questions I ask is what is different from this year from last year or previous successful years and you know I heard some Yulong Pas on the phone and the response was well you know this year. I'm spending more time whale hunting. And this year Maybe not prospecting as much as I had in the past and you know and then they kinda said you know my my head's not as much in the game. I said okay. Well you know one of the things that we can do is the areas of our lives that have led to success in the past when we forget those or forget the the rhythms and cadences inhabits and fundamentals that have contributed to our success in the past when we forget to do those things or get maybe too busy to do those things or something happens or maybe we just expect success to continue if we forget to do the things that have made a successful in the past. It's going to be very very hard to sustain success in the future and this has happened to me and I think this happens to a lot of people where they may we have success and then just expect success and they think that it's it's you or something that is leading towards that and it can sometimes be you know important to remember that success is in lock it. It doesn't just happen overnight and it's not just one big event it's all these little events and all these fundamentals and habits and things that we get into that when done enough in the right way over time success eventually becomes inevitable but when we forget that success no longer becomes inevitable so I it's just an important reminder in tip for me is if you're having success super proud of you keep up the consistency and the good work. If you've had success in the past make sure you're struggling now. Think back to the things that led you there and make sure you're doing them and if you're struggling to find success go back to the the blocking tackling fundamentals of sales and build yourself the right habits and get yourself into the right rhythms every single day and if you do the right behaviors and you do them consistently you will find the successor looking for and of course everyone please always reach out to me.
