"It probably lost its tension and you're fighting with the drumhead that's animal So great idea. But it obviously didn't revolutionize You know it didn't stick that much. And i'm sure as the civil war you know is in that kind of timeframe there Pretty close. It probably wasn't practical to get these. You know ten. Thousands of these turned out for people to use. So probably would have been just bad timing. You know could have been bad timing us a little bit ahead of his time in terms of the concepts. But yeah you know. I don't see. I've read through this patent to. There's there's not actually tensioning elements other than those rope. Are those leather strap on the side and that was just tradition right. That's what they had. That's what they knew. And so i guess the idea behind the police was to make it a little more. Even i think to your point earlier about how do we. How do we adjust these ropes. And make sure that. It's even and i think the police were kind of his attempt to to accomplish that but still not single. Point is necessary. You're still moving the guy. Forget what they're called the ears. I think on the ground move them up the little like You know that's how you tension a rope and drum. So yeah that's crazy. He doesn't have that it's just a the idea. the idea. is there so the idea that if we could just get little less friction in the system. Maybe you know it'll start to even out that that tone. Yes so we give see zimmerman A. for effort but he was missing elements. That early it's He gets participation award alumni knows funded. Come across that patent in particular another interesting here we have is from mean. We jump ahead Significantly about sixty years. So this is january twenty fourth nineteen fifty and this one is kind of a crazy steam punk. Look yeah. i'm just imagining the way of all these different parts. Materials inside of a drama and dial teens. A heavy drum. Well imagine that. Yeah and this is a billy gladstone. Invention so it says at the top right. Wd gladstone And to all right so you have the like brain for this again for audio purposes. What is going on here. Well it took me a minute to figure that out to. I've looked at this. Spend quite a bit You know essentially have is a fixed head so the head is is kind of mounted.
"zimmerman" Discussed on KGO 810
"Zimmerman. He keeps the website behind the black and recently there was a decision made surprising. To award the Lunar lander contract to Space X. The private companies pay sex that is now spectacularly launching and crashing starships and future boosters. In addition to laying up The StarLink necklace around the earth to provide easy access for all to broadband. However, there is also the matter of the choice of NASA. For the moon Lander and for Starship Programs everywhere. Bob sees this with an essay that he has up it behind the back right now. As evidence that commercial space and capitalism are the future. Bob I don't want to say more than this because you have a very careful presentation. But for years now You've maintained that the way forward was capitalism and space. I've always wondered who doubted it. Bob, are the Doubters thinning. Are there fewer of them? There used to be Well, you're the galleries have always been the people in government who it's a power play power power power. They want power and control and in the government is basically controlled space exploration since the Apollo days, which is why we haven't accomplished anything because their goals have nothing to do with It's a teenage me in space. It's mainly job protection, their budgets, their agencies. They don't care if they accomplish anything. They really don't They think they do, but they don't their main goal is just job, man. Keep that budgets and keep that the agency's going Well, beginning about a decade ago we started to transition away from that is a real big turf war going on. More importantly, five years ago, I wrote a policy paper called Capitals in space for a think tank in D. C. That think tank are they're very Hendricks. The guy was ran there who was in charge of the airspace and far and defenses. Few section wanted a piece on the state of the aerospace rocket industry that were has changing at the time. This is before state seconds proposed starship. It was before they've even begun to dominate the launch industry. Man. It was, you know, even before the Trump administration, and so I wrote up this paper comparing private space verses as Celeste's and really discovered that the private space does things like that. And I made a bunch of recommendations for policy makers in this and I want to look at this policy paper now, five years later because of that decision by NASA to pick Starship to land on the moon. And I suddenly realized that all the recommendations I had made a currently are being accepted by the policy makers in D. C. I don't also specifically my paper that is influenced them. Maybe, but it's clearly the meaning to accept these recommendations. Recommendations I made is that that the government should allow the private builders toe on what they build. They should let those private companies design what they build and nothing. Keep things as simple as possible. NASA shouldn't interfere. But they said, Well, doesn't this give them fixed price contracts so that it will not be from a lot of money, So they've got to keep their costs down and be a fish it and then demand that they privately financed things exactly. We'll stay sex is doing by the way it is privately financing it, and this is only giving him a part of the money. And then award contracts in a manner that would encourage competition, which is what NASA has been doing any contract leave. You announce the part of the company's almost the contracts and give it to more than one. They're trying to get multiple companies successful, so they're competing to reduce the overhead. Finally, the one recommendation and accepting he's suspicious. If they could have the private the private sector do everything they could reduce the overhead and reduce their spending a lot shut down a lot of Gary government agencies because these people aren't doing anything anymore. I haven't done that. But they don't even hang out. And what that strikes me as the future of American space is very Potentially very bright because now it's continuing in the Bison administration. The company ministrations seem to accept this, and now the Biden mistresses seems to accept it is well and that tells me that that's the future of American space, private enterprise and competition. And that is the case. The future is very bright because we're gonna have many companies competing to do with efficiently with a lot of innovation. So that's very oppressive. Very bright futures on and I'm very encouraged by we go immediately to an example. I believe of what budget Bob. Just evidence. The Starling is the product of Elon Musk and spaceship as in Space X, However, Amazon Mr Bezos has a Booster Cos. Well blue origin, Amazon is looking to launch its own satellite necklace. The koi per satellites. One of those Bob satellite network would be very similar to stay sexes. Um, a falling satellite would be a worldwide coverage by many sounds like 3200 satellites to provide global Internet service now Amazon significantly behind space, sex and development. Of basically was already operational with 15 some on satellites already and all the 1500. But Amazon is getting close. It appears because they have signed a contract with you. L. A the launch company to use its Atlas five rocket to Mitt do nine launches putting type of satellites up. They don't say how many satellites to be on each launch. They don't know when they don't state when these launches will begin. But Amazon FCC license requires them to get half a constellation in ordered by 26. So they gotta stop moving pretty soon, and they need to stop moving for a different reason. John as much as I like Space X. I'm much more like two companies. As a customer. I've referred to have two customers companies to pick from so that neither has a monopoly. And I want Amazon to start washing the satellites. If they don't do it soon, they're gonna be coming into the market very late. And they're gonna have trouble getting customers because we also have one wave already launching satellites, and there are others being planned by other companies and other countries. And so the Amazon doesn't get moving soon. They're gonna miss out. And I'm hoping that this is a sign that very soon Those satellites will start the large Bob is this Is this in any way concern That it will contribute to the junk in space. This in space orbit all these satellites or well, I know that look back because state Secretary launching Stallings that they designed them. To de orbit themselves when they're no longer operational, so they don't they're they're being a good good citizen in doing that. I am sure that I am not going toe. I'm gonna assume that Amazon will be doing the same with this Skype of satellite, so I don't think it's gonna increase junk..

MLB All-Star Game yanked from Atlanta over voting law
"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week. And then it'll be the defense's turn. We expect starting the following week that is NPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you, Adrian. Thank you, Elsa. Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U. S and Iran back to the 2015 nuclear deal with one The Trump administration left in direct talks are set to begin in Vienna next Tuesday.

If you're going to be that kind of person you might as well make of it. Well this is kind of related to that. But i've A theme in your work is definitely that the world is bad and getting worse. Do you feel like. Is there anything that could shake you of that. And has that developed. That's fundamental to what you write about. It is like in innocence. Sense that it's always something that i'm grappling with. I think I don't wanna always come down on a negative or like cynical note but again like this is an annoying personality trait that i have and so it's going to sort of be in there in some way and so i have the option where i can ride and say well the is bad and getting worse but we have to find a way to kind of get through. Its gather or world's bad and getting worse. I don't really know what to do about that. And i actually tend to little more towards the first one. My friend sarah. Miller is the best person i know at doing the second one. She is like a perfect writer of like everything is terrible. And that is the place that i have landed in this essay and i have not leavened it at all and yet you are very happy that you read it and maybe you laughed. And i can't always do that. I think it's very very special skill to have so. I often feel like there's some kind of liked it. It's incumbent on me to find some way to not just leave people crying back to you know because that's not a very useful or functional is like okay. What are you hoping that people leave with. And what are you hoping that they then go on and do with whatever they gained from reading your writing. And i don't want them to dissolve or at least not not only so you do want to kind of galvanize people in you do want to feel like you know at minimum. You're kind of inspiring people to to like rethink things to do like something sort of proactive. Even if you're not inspiring them to optimism in anyway. So i do try to keep from falling into the abyss in that sense but at the same time leg objectively shit bad and i think that like a lot of things that are bad. It would be easy for me to ignore right because i am white. I am like relatively financially stable. I am educated. I live in an industrialized nation. I have a desk job. I am working from home right now. Generally non ground by a lot of sort of figures of toxic capitalism. And so i have in a sense of responsibility to keep adding before my eye and to sort of incorporate it into wherever it is that i decided to land with. Sa are jess. Will you know there's only one way that this episode can end. Yes yes. I love you. This was really really fun.

"What and then who cares which is going back to excellence right like it happens to me. So what will that takes me to the editing part of it. Because i feel like you're known as a particularly generous and expert editor of personal essays and that in my series is a very hard type of editing to do. And i wanted to know like so. You've described a little bit of what you're aiming for but what you do when you get a piece. Is there a process by which you try to start and arrive at that point. yeah I mean it does like look at them a lot of the time through a rhetorical framework. So i wanna to know. I can express what the point of this piece is and what it's about even if it's very very beautifully written and it can be tempting. If something's beautifully written to say oh well it doesn't really have to have a specific like thesis that could be expressed sentence. It's just a vibe. But i'm like obsessed with With thesis i wanted. I just want to know what the take home messages. So that's definitely something that i look at. If i get a very personal pieces. I wanna make sure that the parts of it. That are personal. Are there for a reason. And they're doing something and then it's not just you know. I needed to work through this so i put it on the page. Just having conversation with somebody about the about the free slaughter your darlings or i guess if most people say chillier were just very bloodthirsty in my family and we were talking about. How like i think a lot of people misunderstand it and just think that it means like don't be precious about your writing and what it actually means her. The way that i was treated understand it. Is that like the parts that you love. The most are probably the parts. That aren't doing anything for people who aren't you And like you have to be willing to get rid of notch just any particular part of the essay at anytime like specifically the parts that you seal especially committed and connected to so on the one hand. I wanna make sure that people aren't just putting things in either because they need to work through it or because like they feel that they owe it to the reader to essentially be like gullible for no reason. I've definitely had people write essays that are about assault or some other kind of trauma and they stick their own experience in there. And sometimes i'll say no you don't have to disclose this like this stands without your personal experience like think about whether this is what you want to be writing about and on the flip side you also want to make sure that people are giving you enough so you know i encounter a lot of writers who are people like me who would love to be vague and would love to like save the word this with no obvious antecedents and not sort of take you through the actual experience but just kind of gesture towards it and you do really have to balance with the self disclosure has to be there for a reason but who also has to be there. And a lot of the time. I'll say don't necessarily need to say more about what happened to you. You know what you can say more about is like what happens right but you have to spend more time in that feeling. Actually the essay. That i was talking about about i may destroy you. This can happen like she sort of gestured at. Oh i made this shift from thinking of myself as a precipitous thing happened to to understanding myself as one of the what is one in three women who's experienced sexual assault so that changed my narrative and i was like you don't have to give us the details of the experience. You can keep that to yourself. We need to hear more about that. Shift in your self identity Do you feel like you have to give. People are people sort of very aware of the way. These things happen in the internet. Now or do you feel like you have to find yourself saying to them if this goes viral. Like you have to think about what's going to happen to you. Rasmus wise or just exposure wise. Yeah i mean. I feel like most people are either senior about that too much or not enough. And like i have one go to writer who is also a memoir instant syracuse jack. She wrote a memoir about like her experience growing up with autism and one of the things that we talk about. All the time is that like it is petrifying for us to think about Every single line were thinking. How is this gonna play however people going to misinterpret this is gonna be the thing on my friend. Angela chan also book. Ace came out last year. Which is about a sexuality so she is a reporter but she also put her personal experience here and she did this like we sort of talked. I don't know if i'm telling tales out of school but But i think it's a reflects well on both of them end on me and at the same time badly that were like for thinking about this all the time like our people gonna see this. Is this going to hurt people essentially Which is good instincts. But it can become something that really gets on top of you and then they're also are people who like if their goal is to write something either for cathartic reasons or for artistic reasons. They aren't really thinking. Beyond what am. I putting on the page like. Either you know. Think about whether you want to be disclosing this or you know. Occasionally someone will kind of right themselves into a corner where they wind up making a claim that like. I don't think they want to stand by. And then i'll say okay what you're essentially saying here is xyz. I don't think you mean that. I think you just like wound up here by following a path. So let's walk back out of that and what you actually want to say. Because i do not think this land well and what. What's your experience.

I would say on the show. This week is jess zimmerman. Jess is the editor in chief of the online literary outlet publisher electric lit. She is also a prolific and brilliant. Sas with a new collection out called women and other monsters. She writes about feminism. She writes about literature and culture. She writes about things that happened online. anti writes about reimagining ancient greek monsters. And we talked about all of that evan. You're burying the lead. She is also max you. You may not know this She's also my sister-in-law. I think it's a brave thing that you've done having so many members of your family on this podcast. I could tell you that. If i had members in my family who wanted to come on this podcast i would not have them on the show. But you're a bigger person than i am. You're a better person than i am and I'm so glad that you had your sister in law to talk about these very sensitive and personal things that she writes about so very well well dedicated listeners to the show. We'll know that some years after the show started i married into a family of successful writers All of whom would be on the show in some sort of alternate universe anyway. So i don't let these familial connection stand in the way of having him on the show. And i should say one disclaimer for this episode. Which is i think partly. Because just and i do know each other so well and i know her work so well. We may have skimmed over some of the Details of some of the essays that we talk about. So if you're not familiar with justice work you should jump in the show notes. You should read something like Hunger makes me or a midlife crisis by any other name. Those are both has let s as or just by the book. Why not just by the book and familiarize yourself a little bit and that might help with the conversation if you want to skip some of the details and just get right to the heart of the gory. Difficult family dynamics. You should do so with an email newsletter because you can do it by yourself and you can reach so many people in mail. Chimp is the absolute best way to send an email newsletter. Thanks to them for their support. And here's evan with just simmering just long-form podcast.
NASA prepares to land Perseverance rover on Mars
"Of the planet Mars. Bob Zimmerman, who keeps the website behind the Black is here. This is happy Birthday Bob Zimmerman At the same time, it's Mars Months. Omar's meets Bob Bob meets Mars. To report on waiting for perseverance, observing curiosity, paying heat that the Chinese air in orbit with the lander as well. And that the USA is in orbit with an arbiter as well. So you see why Mars Month along with Bob Zimmerman? Your donations? Your contributions are most appreciated because Mars has been explored to this point, but now begins the age of Mars because we're going to have information. Well, maybe not from the Chinese, but we're gonna have information in many directions over these X months and years will have two rovers on the ground. Reporting, one of them perseverance with some steroid equipment that is on curiosity, but considerably enhanced magnificent cameras. We're going to have Images of Mars We've not seen before, and we've seen good stuff. So, Bob Ah, very good evening to you. Let us begin before we get to perseverance with the rover curiosity and its progress. Good evening, Bob Gooding. And yes, I have. Since since this is The week that perseverance lands on Mars cross our fingers. I did a rover update early on the weekend behind the black on I entitled it. The rovers are coming. The rovers are coming. And so we, You know that update includes all the rovers that exists not just on Mars and we'll start with curiosity. I gave an update. My updates are mostly designed To give the reader a sense of where the rover has been and where it's going to go and why they're going and doing what they're doing. It's not. It's, which is basically the background to the science and the exploration because you know you'll see and I will post of stories on the actual discoveries in the science research. But the rovers there and doing exploration, and it's something that sense on the tourist so well. We insulted a scientist. So I'd like to show that and it's getting very close right now. Curiosity to the actual base of Mount Shop up to now, since it landed almost 18 years ago, it has been basically Traveling first through the crater floor and then through the dunes. Is that a near the base of the mountain and then through the initial, very tiny foothills, and now it's at the base of the mountain. And, of course, the bay, the mountains quite large. So you've got a lot of many mountains flanking the edges, and those who make could be called foothills as well. But now we're getting spectacular stuff. They do not know what causes them. They think it might be related to see pitch of drying out of the ground, but they don't really know and so curious. He's gonna make a side trip to get close to one about a mile and a half away and then take high resolution images of it, and they'll probably stay looking at that for a period of time. Because, um, you know, they want to see a change over time to try to get some idea of what it is, eh? So that's where we are now, and I've got a you know an image of panorama to show you what it's looking at where it's going. And you can see where overview where you could see was the kid. They're going to move into a canyon called Get this Vallis channel and in many ways, it's like being in the slot canyons of the Southwest. If those people are we, if your listeners are familiar with the wave in northern Arizona, and she's going to be similar to rain, and it's gonna be really, really excited. We know is that a severe elevation Bob is it goes up that yeah, Ground's getting steeper. And so the route is gonna have two more and you look at my map shows the plans are out and they're gonna be working their way around trying to work their way up the The gentle ist slopes, essentially while getting trying to get to the best places to get science data, And so it's it's like a battle. If you go, the best data might not be easily reachable. So you gotta kind of compromise. Yes, this is going to get to be exciting. That channel is about 1500, ft. High and some spots. It's about that wide. Which is a slot canyon, essentially all even narrower and other places, so it's gonna be exciting. All right now, the other Mars probes perseverance first for the Chinese, which she wanted quickly If they're both visa, both coming so we can talk about Let's do perseverance. Next perseverance is planning for its landing on Thursday of this week. At about what is it 3? 55 Eastern time They're going to all the live stream from NASA will be kin about two o'clock to 15. I've got that livestream embedded on behind the black So people wanna watch. They just go to the website that just scroll down to get to watching perseverance, landing on Mars and click on that post. You see? Alive screen. It's 11 minutes after we watch it, So no, this is all on automatic. You can't. It's just too much of a time delay between Mars and Earth them to actually give it commands. The robot has got to do its own job. And, uh, I will want people if they watched the live stream. Most of it's going to be NASA propaganda, though their review of the landing site in the rover and science will be somewhat informative. NASA has been make selling this false notion that the primary goal of perseverance is to search for life on Mars, and that's totally false. That's not true. Sadly,

The lie that invented racism
"What is up with US white people? I've been thinking about that a lot the last few years and I know I have company. Look I get it. People of Color have been asking that question for centuries. But I think a growing number of white folks are to. Given what's been going on out there In our country. And notice I said what's up with US white people. Does right now, I'm not talking about those white people. The ones with the swastikas in the hoods and the tiki torches. They are a problem, a threat, the perpetrate most of the terrorism in our country as you all in Charlottesville better than most. But I'm talking about something bigger more pervasive. Talking about all of us. White folks writ. Large. And maybe especially people sorta like me. self-described progressive. Don't WANNA be. Racist. Goodway people. Any good white people in the room? I was raised to be that sort of person. I was a little kid in the sixties and seventies, and to give you some sense of my parents actual public opinion polls at the time showed that only a small minority about twenty percent of white Americans approved supported. Martin Luther King and his work with the civil rights. Movement. Wild. Dr King was still alive. I'm proud to say my parents were in that group. Race got talked about in our house. And when the show's about the dealt was raised with come on the television, they would sit us kids down made sure we watched the Sidney Poitier movies roots. The message was loud and clear and I got it. Racism is wrong. Racists are bad people. At the same time we lived in a very white place in Minnesota. And I'll just speak for myself I. think that me to believe. that. Those white racists on the TV screen were being beamed in from some other place. Wasn't about US really. Did Not feel implicated. Now I would say I'm still in recovery from that early impression. I. Got into journalism in part because I cared about things like equality. Justice. For a long time racism was just such a puzzle to me. Why is it still with us when it's so clearly wrong. Why such a persistent force. Maybe. I was puzzled because I wasn't yet in the right place or asking the right questions. Have, you noticed that when? People in our mostly white. Media Report on what they consider to be racial issues what we consider to be racial issues what that usually means that we're pointing our cameras and our microphones are gaze at people of Color. Asking questions like. How are black folks or native Americans Latino or Asian Americans how are they doing? In a given community or with respect to some issue, the economy education. I've done. My share of that kind of journalism over many years. But then George Zimmerman killed. Trayvon Martin. Followed by this unending string of high-profile police shootings of armed black people and the rise of the black lives matter movement. dylann roof in the Charleston. Massacre. Oscarssowhite. All the. Incidents from the day to day of American Life. These overtly racist incidents that we now get to see because they're captured on smartphones sent across the Internet. And beneath those visible events the stubborn data studies showing. Systemic racism. Every institution we have. Housing Segregation. Job Discrimination. The deeply racialist inequities in our schools and criminal justice system. And what really did it for me? I know I'm not alone in this either. The RISE OF DONALD TRUMP. And the discovery that a solid majority of white. Americans. would embrace or at least accept. Such a raw bitter kind of white identity politics. This is all disturbing to me as a human being. As a journalist I found myself. Turning the Lens around. thinking. White folks so the story. Whiteness is a story. And also thinking. Can I do that? What would a podcast series about whiteness sound like?

Okay, even I mean and I respected what he said, but that was an indication of like, oh, we don't speak the same language which office and that's okay and there are other things that he and I can talk about and I think that that's the thing. I think a lot of times it's easy to get offended, you know, if someone else It curious on or and it's like, you know, we don't need anyone else to cheer us on to to achieve our dreams and and just like I could never be a nurse like I just couldn't do it. There's just all that partying and then there's blood and I just I'm you have to be like, you know, somewhat sensitive to people's feel like I don't know. It's just not my role and I I think I would not want to sit here and talk with the nurse all about her, you know, like charts and what all she did like, we don't speak the same language be offended, you know, if someone doesn't she doesn't feel passionate about wanting to speak about entrepreneurship because something else some other commonality that we can talk about and I think honestly for entrepreneurs that's something that way to practice because we are so involved in our job that it sometimes we do need to step out and go what else do I have to offer besides talking about work, you know it practice and it's not fun. But but we gotta do that. We gotta find those other commonalities we do we do that is so so true. Oh my gosh. I am so loving talking to you this way. Sit tight don't go anywhere.

Like I want when my kids steamy may I see my kids for my eyes to just light up, you know, and if I am with them twenty-four hours a day seven days a week that's not going to happen. It's just you know, and so I mean being able to to go and do some work and then get to be with them. My eyes are going to light up when I see them because I have gone and I have I have filmed And up I've done what makes me feel a bright and steady, right? They have had adult conversations and I have you know, moved the needle a little bit my business and now I can go I can be the best mom that I can be to those kids. And and I you also have to remember God gave those kids to you for you to be their mother. And so whatever it is that you that makes you feel up right in steady. That's what your kids need from a mom, you know, and so that like I said, she might be a full-time mom that might be a nine-to-five mom who comes home a little later. That might be a mom like me who you know, there are seasons where I'm in work and then there are seasons that I am able to just kind of check some email and and hang out with them most of the time and you know for me it's never going to be I like this many hours a day with the kids and this many hours a day at work. It's going to be what makes me feel up right in steady. Right? Right. I love that song right and steady cuz I think most of us have the wrong definition of balance.

So that's I was like for a couple of days I didn't even know what to do with myself because I'm not prepared. My script had flipped flipped the script on me. I didn't know what to do and I had to just be like, you know what girl you need to get this together. This is a blessing right here. You don't know why God put you out early, but you may just need to tap into that and on top of that, you know, just make it do what do you have time now to really focus take this month, you know and figure out really what you want to do, you know for me, it's just like okay. This is my schedule. This is how I need to do this. This is how I'm going to shake these businesses, but you know what I love about us is women no offense to the guys cuz I know got some guy listeners that's like look at her. She always pumping up the women we know how to land on our feet though. Yeah, we do we all woke. Have a combat game for stuff. Well, there's a reason that God gave, you know us the you know, the body to Bear children and stuff. We're strong very strong. I mean there's a reason and I love what you said and I think you know, I try to come from a place of rejection really is one of two things. It's either protection or redirection took this and so I think a lot of people can get you know, and I used to be this way. I used to get frustrated, you know, or think why did that client go with someone else or you know, and I think you really just have to come from a place of no that wasn't meant for you like that might have been the most nightmare client in the world and you might have, you know had the toughest time and so just not everything is for you and.

"Business and Business who? I mean they eat breathe and love it. Like they know all the names of the flowers and if you told them they could never catch a flower again. They would be like well just end it now because what is life I can't do this and for me, I just never felt that way and I I kind of honed a craft for for the business that I purchased but I it was kind of a passion of mine if I'm being completely honest. And so what happened is my husband. He got really sick to the point where he was just in and out of the hospital I had had my daughter and then I had a newborn twin boys. So life was very full. Yeah. He was in the hospital and I just knew any day now he was going to lose his job and I thought I'm going to have figure this out. I mean have to figure out how support this family. And so I took some time and just learned everything that I could about business and after about a year, I really am Informed my business. I mean I went from bringing home nothing to being able to bring home a six figure salary to support my family. And so one of the things I learned was that people during that successful people, they utilize their low seasons. And so I had to low season of January February and I decided to just write down what I did write down everything I learned about the business behind the balloons and I sold it and I'm telling I'm you I did not have a newsletter list. I think I had three hundred followers on Instagram. Like I didn't even know you know online courses was a thing like where I just did this thing in a PDF and sold it and that was the first time that I really felt. Oh, this is this Feels Like Home to me like sharing vulnerably about business and sharing vulnerably just about my life my experience. And so that's what kind of took me into the direction of dead. And education and I believe that is what prepared me to share really vulnerably about my personal life, which is what I'm doing right now with my book sleeping with a stranger. Yeah. So there it is. I got goosebumps girlfriend. Okay literally got goosebumps. And this is the thing we have so much in US Jessica wage that is sad to say that we don't push it out until we're almost forced to you know, you were pretty much wage, you know, have started your business, but you were pretty much just thrust into entrepreneurship on a different level when hubby got sick and you had to figure out a way to provide for your family, so I hate for the ask you to be a little bit more transparent cuz you already have but give us the real sense.

"See here. Katie in Zimmerman Minnesota the famous Katie of Zimmerman. Hey, thanks for having me on. Thank you. Masculine did to me is a man who provide for a woman. Her was her and Patrick her out in a good balance. It's a balance. Such a man in your life. I asked somebody do once in a while he's off balance, but he does pretty well. To do that to being once in awhile off balance is also masculine. All right. Bye. Thank you. I raised this issue. Maybe ten years ago. I think it was the last time. And women called in. I said only women in and they all spoke about nearly all spoke about a man who takes responsibility, they found that very masculine that. Correct. And that is how I was raised. I was raised be a man means you get married and take care of a family that was the number one item. Not you run for president not not that you be a CEO that you get married and take care of a family. This is completely lost. By the way. It's very feminine to want to get married and take care of a family house that that's the irony. When when a girl says career is her number one thing, it's not feminine. Just isn't doesn't make you a better person. I'm just telling you. Almost nobody. I'm not bragging. I am. Lamenting I promise you. I never wanna be the only person saying something. It's no. Joy in my life to be a lonely voice. When I am lonely voice. Because I care too much about the issue. But unfortunately, I I'm lonely as a voice in this matter. I'm not alone. But it's lonely. And by the way, the very fact that men are afraid to talk this way is E emasculating. That's that's a point to be made. All.
