And i think that's i think that's a strength at least at the moment because i mean there are still I guess outdated id's and on on guilty of it And you probably less likely to share in an environment With the women rant open. Because maybe you wanna fit into the paradigm of of being masculine may be paying a bit more tough aware The guys do seem to feel fairly comfortable in a in a man.

"The way people to talk to begin to develop a positive white anti racist identity, you know, to lay a foundation because speaking for myself. I was Was heavily conditioned, growing up in America as a white person, especially as a white man. I was heavily conditioned to believe it, and without it, you know, no one ever had to say it the superiority of white men. But every time I pull a dollar bill out of my pocket every time I see a coin growing up seeing movie posters turning on the news, every president's everywhere I looked up, I saw white men in positions of power. And I thought that's the way it was supposed to be. And psychologically what that does is really twofold. You know one it it creates for me internalized racism, of course, white supremacy, but it also Uh, you know, so I'm acting out on that. But then it's it also just, you know, I begin to think that that's the way it's supposed to be, which you know spiritually. Meant to me that there was no way I could access my own humanity under those conditions of sort of internalized hierarchies, so constructive conversations, you know, we just said, come as you are. It's a place for white people to come in and You know, Sitting two tables. Let's talk because I realized I could have lived my entire life without ever understanding systemic racism and was ever without ever sitting at the table with other Um, similarly inclined white folks to begin to work through this stuff so that I could find my own personal liberation. But also I could find my sense of purpose and usefulness in dismantling this. This oppressive system. That's going so far. No, it zah great. Answer my questions. How's it going so far? Because it doesn't seem like it's an easy It's not like just turning a switch, right? I mean, it's not like flipping a light switch. This is this is Systemic, ingrained be before orange type of stuff and and trying to break norms that have been, you know, ingrained into our our fabric of our existence. Since before we exist, it is is difficult. Yeah, well, absolutely, And it's meant to remain invisible. I mean, certainly it's not invisible to black indigenous people of color. I mean, no It in no way. Is it invisible? But it is meant to be invisible for us white folks. And for the most part, I would say it is, you know, it's zweiten Supremacy is effective. It's been, you know. 400 years of working just the way it was meant to work, but but to answer your question, it's going well because more people you know this this past summer was really a A turning point for a lot of white folks. Really getting e e mean even my mother, you know, it was started to see something she hadn't seen for 80 years. She could you know it had been in existence, but she saw it for the first time. As it is so and also because we're in the zoom era. Now, people from anywhere in the country or the world can can come to our gatherings. We have seven a month. It's constructive white conversations dot org's on Gui really figured out a system that Zwart King very well for people who want to go deeper into anti racism and I would say Collective liberation. Okay, I'm glad I got you started on that. Yeah, Come join us. It's really It's a very moving experience to have and t get that sense of Understanding and to get a sense of purpose and usefulness around these, these issues is really important and meaningful. Okay, I'm gonna Jump subjects. I like this. I want to go toe constructive white conversations that org, But I got other questions. Yeah, um When you get back to doing shows. You're doing something called sensory friendly shows, And that's you, Nick Witty. I don't hear a lot of people talking about that. So can we hear a little about what makes AH show a sensory friendly show is compared to just going to see Regular, family friendly event. Sure, So I think sensory friendly means different things to different people. Oftentimes when folks here sensory friendly, they think, and it means the student is a show or an event that is specifically for adults or Children on the autism spectrum. When we talk about sensory friendly, we are really talking about again. Come as you are a show that is for everybody. And when we when we look at that we're thinking about the ways in which it's inclusive and accessible to people. So in our shows even before we were calling it sensory friendly it really I think we were still we're tapping into the essence of sensory friendly where we have parts for the audience to do. There's something for everyone that we know there's not one way to be in music, so just really just tapping into what folks need. Opening the door wider so that more people feel considered on been vital to the party. As a music therapist. I know in working with families, one of the challenges that many of them faced was having this sort of split family dynamic where One parent might be doing something with the child with a disability while the other parent is doing this with the child who doesn't have a disability, and so there wasn't a lot of opportunities for them, too. Have these social interactions as a family unit. So same thing was shows, you know, as we know, and we, the theater environment sometimes isn't as inclusive as we like to think it to be on Dhere ng from families to where it was. You know, we went to a show My child was Crying or my child couldn't sit in this seat for the entirety of the two hours And so we're getting looks for being shushed The Stig mother, the challenges that families face, so we work with presenters. We work with the people there to really make sure that we create the conditions where Audience members can come truly comes. They are if they want to jump up and dance during. Ah ballot, a slow song they can do that, and that's totally accessible on and also having spaces that might be For folks who may be overly stimulated or just need a time out for whatever reason, and I just need to recharge that they could still be a part of the overall experience. And, you know there might be a modern, modern monitor in there where they can still see what's happening on the stage and some sensory, tactile things possibly up there, too..

He deals in behavioral science. He's the author of the parasitic Mind. Have not read the book. I'm going to now. Read the book. And I'm going to read the book. Because He on Social media. Got into a very quick back and forth with Seth Rogan, the actor, the comic who is He's all sorts of super tough guy. On on Social media. Right. He's the guy who, you know, uh, went after Ted Cruz and called me a fascist all these kinds of things. Um He talked about Seth Rogan being a classic example of a video that that He's a part of And Seth Rogan responds and says, I watched the video and it's so stupid. Why was I left wing Socialist when I was broke and unemployed, according to your brilliant theory. Well. I want you to hear this response. Gadd Saad says Thanks for watching many young people are socialists when they're driven by immature impulses of utopia. Then they grow up. You are a grown man with tons of money. Your current stances are rooted in vacuous. Empty. I think it's pronounced vacuous. There's a vacuous, vacuous, sorry, vacuous, empty, signaling rooted in the desire to belong in Hollywood. Well, how many times we've seen this where people engage positions because it puts them in line with the right people, as opposed to maybe having a strong belief for an idea that they put out there even if others disagree. With the thing. He continues its egg zero courage to hold your stance is within the entertainment ecosystem. You espouse Bs rhetoric that wins you points at the cool kids parties, But you are otherwise as ignorant does my out of order toaster. That's a pretty brilliant line. That's a brilliant line. But we've seen this when people talk about being brave. And while they're at the golden Globes of the Oscars, that spot espousing leftist politics is not bravery. Bravery would be. I voted for Trump and you're all crazy for not doing so that would be bravery. I mean, it's not as brave as going into battle, but it would still be more brave than saying we have to right the wrongs of injustice. It's not my fault. Hollywood is a big place. Go handle your handler yourself, right? Fix your own house. I'd be happy to chat with you on my show is you have a very large platform, and as such, you have the opportunity to make a difference. Now That's a smart move right. You get his people in there and you create a name for yourself. That's that's good. Marketing. Stop succumbing to the herd Mindset. Learn how to think. Critically learn the meaning and implications of socialism versus capitalism. You are among the most privileged people in the history of humanity now. This is where I found myself saying, Oh, somebody listens to the show. He writes your the among the most privileged people in the history of humanity. And yet you walk around as though you are a Che Guevara revolutionary. You are the product of capitalism. If you're such a socialist, send me some of your money. I'm trying to build an interdisciplinary research institute. Without your convictions. If your socialist you have no business being the beneficiary of the most capitalist industry in the most capitalist country in the history of humanity don't be a hypocritical fraud. Cheers, amigo. Now there's some little digs in there. They're not necessarily my style. But the idea that you're the most among most privileged people in human history and you walk around as though you're a taker of our revolutionary, This is the these are the facts. This is the truth. People talk about being oppressed. They're searching for something to be oppressed by Just the small it. I'm sorry, Juicy Chevalier, As as Dave spot would say was so not oppressed, he had to invent a reason to be oppressed. People do that all the time. That is part of the basis of things like critical race theory, an anti racism not to discuss real issues out there that do indeed exist, but to find ways to be insulted. Oh, it was a micro aggression. You're searching for ways to to be hurt. You are amongst the most privileged people in the history of humanity, being an American at this day and age and time. That's not me somehow not noticing reality. Those are the facts there undeniable And when people walk around angry and bitter and finding this one did me wrong and that one did me wrong and I have to fight against that because we've talked him. If you're not fighting injustice, you're not a real person. But there's no injustice in in a major government top down way, So you have to find anything to be the injustice. There are injustices are things wrong and they're worth fighting. But people go out searching for them and everything are angry, bitter people when they're amongst the most privileged in the history of humanity with that is a factual statement, and I love that it got made. No bone loss. He's got traffic.

Normally aspirated two thousand eleven Porsche. We came together saying, let's do us. That's do the event where you drive from here in GT to drove from LA to pikes peak put numbers on it. They're go race. And try to try to win the class. I ended up losing school. But it's debt that drive really shouldn't have been a big deal. Right. It was car had full cage, and you know, like stuff, and it was it was fine. And we rolled along. It was great and no big deal. And then I get to there. We put the numbers on put a few sponsors on race. And we ended up losing just by like a second and a half. I think the class, and but we set a production car record there complete stock. But what was cool that was the GDP to R s was six hundred and twenty worst power, and it was fully six twenty at the summit? And it just pulled like nothing I'd ever driven there. And so I come back from that. I go I'm on the GD three Cup cars best handling car. I've ever g as the most power I've ever driven. Let's put those two things together. Well, it didn't exist. So we got together. BB I and Potemkin Joey Sealy, and they all combine their talents together to create this turbo Cup car, which was an absolute monster because you know, to deliver seven hundred fifty eight hundred horsepower at the summit. Yeah. It's like working over a thousand horsepower at the summit. So it's it was just a crazy car. There were a lot of things that had to happen in there that made the reliability tough to get it all dialed in the first year. So we we ended up coming back three times but ended up winning there. And that's the car that. I went went under ten minutes into I drove a car that was that had a slightly milder version of that engine, and it was a psycho death machine that swan..

"Everybody was rocking amid nightmare. Lexus. Everybody had. So like, I think there's probably a lot of million mile lexuses in the Middle East. Yeah. But like nobody gives a shit, but like Lexus didn't really care either. But I was proud of us. I thought it was almost like I actually made me think about the times we shot million mile cars and also how you have to like one hundred twenty five thousand miles on my. Okay. Three and a half years almost four years. Right. You know, and not that's a lot of driving. Yeah. But that's nothing compared to how how did that? How did I I remember how the Mercedes the last one I shot for a million, man? I remember how it got there. So so the thing about million mile cars is like you in generally, I think in most cases, you need one really fast idiocy owner with a really absurd commute. That's that's kind of the normal art. Yeah. The guy who checks telephone. Polls on the highway for a job in his. Whatever for me. I was the sixth owner of this fucking thing. And then I put ear wasn't a ninety six ninety six. So the first owner leased it normal lease second owner bought it off lease drove it about an and drove it from thirty six thousand miles to seven hundred and fifty thousand really, yeah. In twelve years Wendy do. I don't know. I've never found. The dude isn't that. My Mercedes guy was a west coast rap. Yeah. Living in Portland, and we basically go L A Portland. LA? I would guess it was something like that. And then the the owners after that between seven fifty and eight ninety seven where I bought it. Basically just did the bare minimum to keep the thing on the and so when I bought it it was in a pretty rough state and win across the million. It was in significantly better shape than when I got to the point where I would not hesitate to get an driving across country right now. The biggest where points like what made you notice? Everything's. What made you know, is it's age first off everyone who drove it uniformly said with a hundred percent across the board that it that they would have not guessed it had more than like two hundred thousand on it. So it was really really nice. The engine was really saying with was it in had been rebuilt. Never be engine. Never been open insane gearbox three times. Yeah. The the I had to do a gearbox rebuilding. It was thirty six hundred dollars. So I would say that was a big one. I did shocks bushings and shit like that. And you know, there wasn't any one maintenance item. That was horrid aside from the gearbox rebuild. Everything else. Was was fine. It wasn't that bad. They have a tendency to leak the power steering pumps will leak onto the alternator. And then kill the car. What was the interior like decent? Yeah. I wouldn't want to loom it all in you've it. But. Is everything works? See he our everything works. I have an original nine eleven with sixty thousand plus miles. And it's a seventies. Okay. And literally like sitting in this seat is. So it looks normal till you sit in. Driver's seat. Now wasn't the best. But the back seat was in pretty good shape. It was it was a lot better. Visit original paint. No pay was fucked. Okay..

"They have all my Formula one stuff laid out on the conference table. And they say if you can stop Formula one cars, do you think you could do something with our fighter planes? Yeah. And so I so I started with the project or the F twenty which was this third world country kind of it was a private fighter plane. You know, that that they were selling till they were going to sell to other countries and do things, and it was it was a spin off of the t thirty eight and the F five, and that's okay. But so the first one I shot was red white and black all sports card out. It was really cool. And then and then we use. Plane to plane from the role. So here's the deal. Listen, I'm going to need to go up there. Yeah. Well, so here's the deal is that I shot they didn't have any two seaters of of twenty. But we used one of the F twenty s and BMW shot group was cars that I was shooting and that being we painted it BMW gray per Flaine. And after that, then we started shooting at all over again. And that all came from my association with BMW will then they took on the teen program. And all of a sudden, I was Martin Baker ejection seat certified, and I was flying all the time on different missions on. And also, they never fly for you. You know, dedicated. Yeah. Us go out. So I'd get to a briefing in the morning, and they would be okay today. We're going to do hygiene dog fights, and you'll be able to shoot on the transition out there and shoot on the transition back. And are they doing this to to develop the planes or to train pilots or is all the navy? I was with the name was with Northrop at this point. You're well, I'm still working for Northrop, but I was lying within. I was with VFW one twenty five which is based in Lamar, and, but I went through all my Jackson seats simulation.

"And I remember my dad said, well, you need you have interest in the cut of artsy version of it as well. Or did you just like doing kind of action sports type stacks in sports? I mean, I liked photogr. Lifer. Kind of. And I I remember photographing. I wanted to photograph things I liked being around. Yeah. And so that was the main thing, and it was interesting because it wasn't you know, I just never equated to every billboard. You drove by every magazine, you opened up all the stuff that somebody is getting paid to do that. I just didn't some a lot. And I didn't have anybody that I'd grown up with doing that. So I didn't have an example. And it wasn't until I got art center that they actually said, you know, this is a career that's money making career as opposed to you know. So you you went to art center here, and from your time there, they taught you that this can be a business, and here's how you do it. Yeah. The difference between fucking jealous of that. I went to art school. I was studying talk graffiti, you Penn like the best business school country. I studied art, and it was all fucking frou frou high-concept shit. Yeah. And I was like how do I make money at this jazz me, please? You know, I wish they did that and. I should've gone to arts center will he did that. And that was the difference is I looked at RIT. I looked at Brooks. I looked at art center. And when I got art center, you know, there's really maybe only ten percent of the teachers are full time. There actually is there any striking. And I remember like maybe the fourth or fifth week of school. We went to this photographer who had a studio. My one of my instructors had a studio, and he got the parkas cars inside his studio. Oh, you thought that was the cool. Yeah. It's like a Dan Tanna moment. Shitty. Has an adult hand. It's almost like a really nice tree. Yeah. Big enough for a car, a nice, fresh seamless and like ooh, soft box. When I saw that. I was like sold. I go. I gotta I gotta do this thing. So the for those who don't know arts center in Pasadena, by the way is also wear a lot of car designers end up going. They have a great program for that literally drawing than doing interiors on clays and all that kind of crazy. Yeah. And that was the fun thing for me is because you know, generally. Everybody. There was wanting to shoot tabletop things or girls, or whatever I was just there to shoot cars. And so nobody in photography, you know, the photography classes were really interested in the car thing. But I had this whole transportation design there. So I got to be buddies with a lot of the guys there who went on. And did lots of great things. And I grew up with Freeman Thomas. Oh, yeah. So it's kinda cool because you know, he did the t t did so many great things along but not a lightweight. Yeah. He's like mister like kind of bow house. Totally so baseball gloves stitch seats. Yes. That's exactly right. Why didn't those last that was awesome? When will there be a throwback? It's gotta be time. Maybe on Audi's, their whatever their their their version of the taken is a sport GT. Yeah. Whatever that's called. Yeah. Each Ron jacuzzi because that actually looks like a pretty good car to throw the baseball, John. That'll be it. They'll pay for it. You know, they'll pay for events in a leather fusebox Hersey shit. Art center must have been what years were you there? Seventy seven to seventy nine must have been good time. Yeah. It was definitely. And it was when they just moved to the new campus with the building building and buildings really. And it's still cool. Yeah. Designing building. And I was just like it was it was cool. And it was so different than my kind of science and biology kind of background that I was before. So it was it was great. And I, you know, skateboarding every afternoon in kind of it was just the full, and, you know, all California, and like I live like forty five fifty miles away from it..

"I actually don't doubt it because they don't even when I was running the paraly- championship. You know, as the cars, we were driving were still relatively obscure, you know, so Mazda three to three or, you know, those things which is what I was racing Yuna three two three with now. Those amazing six cylinders to have a six now as turbos. All this before the eighty. Eighty nine hundred more of like a normal car back. Yeah. Okay. So I ran one of those. I remember, you know, people there were several running in the events. And there is always the need for taking something off as spectators gar gun. Got you need really helpful spectators. That's for sure. To push people that were in a hurry to go home. Rallying is the greatest sport. That is the hardest sport to watch. It's like it's just except for, you know, the occasional WRC, you know, helicopter and seventy cameras it's impossible to. Yeah. It was it was even worse than the US because of the, you know, basically, how dangerous it was to run on public roads. Yeah. Everything when I was running was at night, literally the rally start till at night, and is because there'd be less traffic, and so traffic, and if somebody was coming out of the way, he had lights and all that sort of thing. But it, but literally our rally championship was maybe to do stages in the daytime everything night, which you know, you go to sponsor and say I want to run a full championships, we're cheap. And by the way it runs. No one's going to see. Yeah. Yeah. How how in hindsight? It was it like how much can here is it to rally at night. You know, it was it. It's fortunately, kind of all equal everything. But I will say I drove in the world championship rally New Zealand, and I drove a Mitsubishi ego. And I had you know, a full on WRC co-driver for me to work with. And he had told me that with notes I'll be just as fast in the day in the night as I was in the day. And we went and ran a in New Zealand rally ran a stage twice once in the day. And once and that was absolutely true. You could you when you started dialing in on the notes and just fully listening to it and going very little by what you're seeing. It was pretty amazing like was it. Good enough for you almost got close. My eyes. But I do remember the stage that we ran in the day, you know, day, and then we ran at night. Here's three jumps three rises. And I just remember we were like you. They were the first one was flat. The second one was a lift and the third one was flat of heading. And so you're coming down his rises and come over the first one flat. And you know, your headlights are aimed up high in the trees, and then they come down, and they reveal that. Okay. That was. The. Crest four something. So you're backed off a bit back off a bit headlights go up, and then it comes down, and you see the mmediately why it was across for. So then you hit the third one, and you've already seen what it's like if you get screwed up and he hit the third one. And I just remember flat out foot straight to the floor. And no way was my mind saying, that's what should be doing. Leave my foot down and has headlights just stayed in the trees, the jump was much bigger though. And I just think it we aren't even. I know see Rodas point. And when the headlights get down. It was like okay is a straight road. So so I did a tiny little jump in a car once tiniest little bullshit tabletop where I think I probably travelled the length of this table in the air like not very far. It was the most fun thing jumping a car. If you know that it's going to be okay. Yeah. Is the just especially when the landings are really nice downhill landing is just like, it's like, you never left the ground. Yeah. Yeah. It's just a carry. I love the I love the watching that that glide lovely. So all right. You have had an extraordinary career..
