I'm telling you she's prolific but the best part is that you wrote goody santa claus and us labor daytime my parent- my mom passed like kathy lee road because there's a lot of things named after her in film if she'll be like that kathy bates and i'm like that is so sad for like this woman who is a queer legend who wrote at amazing poem like for america and who died years before she knew the kathy bates was gonna come along and just steal our full thunder her full thunder.

"Snap and and this is beautiful you I want to welcome Anna Feldman to the Pug the beautiful you podcast today thank you N._F._O.. Sharing your ton and you have a story that has just touched watched my heart very deeply many many times. Could you just let us know a little bit more about your journey becoming fully revealed and fully expressed because I'm guessing you would always that way yet will well interestingly will festival. Thank you so much for having me. I'm so excited to be on this show. I feel so aligned and so passionate about this message getting out there as you know so thank you thank you <hes> it's interesting because pause before I got diagnosed with my skin condition called BS ally go and I don't know of others are aware of it. Lie Go but what it is. It's a it's a deep pigmentation of the skin and I got diagnosed with this very tricky. They say it's autoimmune but no one really knows what it is that it's very tricky to resolve and so in my mid twenties when I got diagnosed with this I was already well and truly really you know out there. I was teaching Yoga. I was pregnant extroverted popular person. I had sort of come out of my shell which is really interesting to reveal more of myself than I have <unk> had 'cause I was quite a a traumatized child and I feel like I resolved quite a lot of that. In coming to this what I call my beauty peak and then to be diagnosed with an autoimmune condition that was so cosmetically challenging challenging it was so psychologically challenging to see my skin start to turn white in these kind of irregular patches starting eight starting around my mouth around my eyes my my hands all of these places that you know people say you like that's your skin. That's the first point of coal I I was working in a corporate job. I was shaking people's hands and I had these very weird. Looking whites ought starting to appear and grow very quickly <hes> in all of these exposed places so it so funny that you should ask that because I was challenged on how it is that I could remain as as visible as I wanted to be an is expressed as I wanted to be yet you know everything in my kind of I suppose sub-conscious and everything in my you know shame box started to become very real sa- me again and it almost pulled me right back into that whole of invisibility and fear and shame and so I you know there. Was this big push pool that was happening for me in my twenties if that makes sense yeah that's that's remarkable so proud of you. You're twenties. This wasn't an issue well. Well this wasn't an issue other. Things were an issue. This became this became like the manifestation of all of these other issues and so you can only do you know you can only hide so much before the bodies starts to spurt out you know these things right and different people get different elements different disease starts to show up in the body. Mine was the skin so there was no way left for me to hide wow it's almost like the true purpose deep within new colon within new was was being in such conflict. Your body was in such conflict with what you were created to be into do so aw how did you journey through that. It's quite poetic. It's funny because I think I created it like we all kind of cut create what we get right so I think to some degree my silent wish growing up particularly my high school years I went through a very devastating bullying experienced that lasted nearly three years of my final years of high school and it was a silent wish to disappear myself and I physically would have to take myself to the library so that ah I wouldn't get abused in the hallways. You know it was one of those horrible ex-boyfriends the popular guy you know God forbid you break up with them. All my God you know the humiliation of it all and then turning all if he's might against me it was it was a real nightmare and saw I was hiding myself physically and I remember even as a young girl <hes> having experiences where I just wanted to disappear myself so to get something so physically you know like that way your cells at deleting the color the all of the lovely olives skins of my cells would deleting themselves to this kind of transparent wide. <hes> was kind of like a wish come true which is really just crazy. Wow so you're twenty and your <unk>. You're in front of people you're not able to hide. What what do you do so I was very fortunate that I have got such a spiritual spiritual thread in me as such a such a impulse to to grow to always want to evolve and expand into more of who I'm here to be there was owns that impulse inside of me so I became a yoga which is really interesting because I knew that this thing will is coming? I had seen the pictures in the books. I knew what was going to happen. Y So I made a conscious and very uncomfortable decision to become a yoga teacher. I knew what was coming. I'd seen the pictures in the books. I knew what my skin could potentially look. Mike and I knew that either. I was going to go down this path that I didn't have much control all right the physical aspects of how it might turn out the me and I could either go into hiding and shame and and Fiat or I can completely turn this around and put myself out there the biggest role I thought I could in my early twenties to make an impact on others in so yoga appeared. I was in my mid twenties. Yogurt Edgar appeared. I started going to classes and a natural evolution for me was to go and take the teacher training over in L._A.. and Sir I I did. I took the little inheritance that I received from my my grandmother. I sold a few things often I spend all my site in Scott over and put myself through the teacher training and of course you know wearing short shorts and little talks in the story the grueling experience that it was I did the big chrome yoga training. I don't know if you're familiar with Yoga but it was ninety days of you know four hours full for plus hours in that in that space and go me. It got me comfortable or at least mo comfortable being being sane but of course it was only the very beginning of you know that the Vitiligo it's it's a you know it's probably covering five percent my body then and now it's more more like seventy percents. Wow I was already in training to be uncomfortable with thane with you know having something different on my skin Ryan but the paces that was taking myself through a very similar to the pacers that I take myself through now because it's become more of a habit for May to be visible end to to do my work in the world no matter what as you know Mariam. Has You certainly do so you would very proactive you. You made some very powerful choices to not let this thing become an obstacle or a hindrance to the passion that you had so. You said you took yourself through your paces. Can you share what what that looked like what they represented yeah yeah so and I just WanNa say it hasn't always been easy. There's been some doc moments they to which out which I'll really speak into shortly <hes> because I think that's the truth isn't it. It's really dealing with these these types of things. It's really important to be really human about it and you know it's such a it's such a wound for women the beauty wound <hes> and we don't talk about it enough and it could be just the smallest things to two very hey you know two very big things for women around body image and you know what you know how we appear to others that has a very strong <hes> evolutionary story. It's very real why these things matter to us and Aubain bumped back into my my box many times even on that very conscious journey that I've been on where I think I've had a really great p._d.. Potty has been really great moments of like who I may not fair and you know I want to go to the beach like everyone else into psych. In the Sun. The outdoors have always been really tricky not only from the aesthetic aesthetic you know perspective but also for safety right. I've got like you know much higher chance of getting skin cancer. There's absolutely no melanin in my skin so there's no protection so is the is the physical side of it too so to fix my life in in that way and I love Vitamin D so it pisses me all while they're just like really annoying but what I have done and this is really to answer your question is I've always followed my my north. Star is always been this kind of guiding light's visible guiding light that I've been following an it's an impulse to <hes> follow my truth to follow the next thing that that is lighting me up and inspiring may end dot and I feel that what it's done is it's laid me on a very powerful journey of transformation that really speaks to year the last the last twenty years. That's got me through this tall. Experience is coming back home to the truth of who I am of who we all are and the work that needs to be done and so I've often said that the fire in my belly is so much stronger than the fire of my fears of my insecurities of my shame. It's not to say that none of it is there. It's just doesn't even compete with the fire that I have for my purpose to not only be visible and to spread spread the message of the importance of visibility and I can go into that with you as well that I just wondering you had a beautiful line they the fire of my belly helps you either. Come the fire of your fears. The fire from I hope I said it right. It's the fire for my purpose. Yes he'll in my belly. That's for my purpose. I'm on not given Senate right before is stronger than the fire my fear so it's really the May it's about got people getting really clear on what they're on purpose about what they're a stand for because it has really I mean that's been a huge part of where I saw my my beauty. The true mature definition of beauty as we know we so much deeper than you know. The skin feels like this fire has fueled so much of my drive and and direction while I am really touched to your credit dealing with an external beauty issue as a twenty year old would have been just horrendous. I'm sure so something your purpose became so much more powerful than what would drive every other twenty thirty forty even fifty year old woman so much more powerful than what you look like on the outside so way did that how come from what what's is your source you know what's your strategy to impel yourself that you have overcome this fear. E can't hide behind like some of us can put things over A._S._L.'s but for you it so much of your body that it's not something you can hide that you have found purpose within you that is so much more powerful than what others of us would like depend on rely on yes you. You've just hit the nail on it's really really date the May actually because <hes> the source of my power goes back into my lineage and DUnno if United Mariam him but I'm a Russian Jew and I both sides of my family <hes> Jewish come from <hes> a very strong <hes> ancestral background of the Jewish people people and I stand on the shoulders of ancestors who did not get a chance to themselves fully and when I got when the Vitiligo really started to spread I had a healing and and it was one of those kind of.
Google's Pixel 3a is Boringly Good, Which is Fine
"Let's talk three weeks with the pixel three Andrew. He wrote an editorial came up on the site today and this, this got me right in the gut because I disagree, I disagree with this so bad. I definitely did ask you to proofread this. Title time as possible the review rebuttal. Okay. So this title is the pixel three is just a great four hundred dollar phone, nothing more. And that's okay, my God. So many feelings about this. Walk us through why you feel this way because it's a good. It's a very convincing aditorial and I agree with some of it, but I want to hear your take people rightfully I guess, because it was kind of the, the talk of Google, yo with really. I would say overboard on the, the hype about the pixel three a three A XL. Because on paper, it looks amazing. It looks like it's half the price of the corresponding, you know, high end pixel three model but has the same camera the same Soffer futures. The hardware is still good. You know, Google made really smart cuts throughout two to hit this lower price point. But still, keep the quote unquote experience all the same, but the places where Google made cuts actually do make a difference when you certainly use the phone, I pointed out that it's the it's the critical misunderstanding of looking at the spec sheet and thinking that that's going to correspond perfectly to what it's like, when you use the phone, and yes, it does do all of the things that purports to do in terms of the camera being good. And, you know, having all the same software feature. Offers. But when you use it, it you don't you don't pick up at three A and think, wow. This is an eight hundred dollar phone. You pick it up and you go. This is an amazing value for four hundred dollars. But man, if they were charging more than four hundred dollars for this, it would it would be it would not be right to charge charge more because from my big things are the hardware is not nice that it just it feels cheap. It's plastic. He it's kinda gross. The vibration motor danger. You'll have to agree is horrendously bad. And that's it's really really bad. It's readily, like most one plus six level Radley I learnt say right now. Yeah. It's too strong and it's bad. So it's also slow, it's just it's not as fast and smooth is pixel three which is kind of, and we know the pixel three has its own performance problems. But this is like it's it feels like it's. Snapdragon six seventy in it. Instead of eight forty five it, the screen is not good, even by pixel three standards which are, let's say low. It's missing things like waterproofing and the speakers are not quite the same doesn't have the secondary front facing camera for wide angle shots. They're all these little things to the experience that, like, once you use the thing for a few days, you're, like, wow, great phone, but nobody is going to actually cross out this with the pixel three and thank you. This is the better phone. It's Bill values not to be. But a lot of people are saying, wow, why do they even make the pixel three anymore. You know, the pixel three is everything that that Google needs. And that's it. No. I mean, I've been using the pixel three excel a lot before I switched to the three ASL and it's like that's dramatically nicer phone, whether or not it's twice as good. I don't think Google even agrees because they've been cutting the prices on the three and three XL at this point. But it like come on people. This is not a full replacement for the higher end phones. Okay. I got I got to collect myself, ration- motor is bad. It's not bad. It's really good. It's actually very good. And it's surprisingly good. I don't know if you've ever been so wrong in your life, but no, I mean, like let's let's breakdown some of what you said. Because I think it's important, and I agree with you. That there's there are a lot of cuts to the hardware that got down to the price point, the screen isn't great. It's not bright. It's got pretty bad viewing angles. I mean as old led displays go. This is pretty twenty fifteen. Rather than running nice, grab it. So that's fair. I mean, the, the part right. If you think about the things that cost money when you look at it be OM. It's the screen, and it's the associate and they're saving a hundred dollars from both of those things by going with the six seventy in this older slightly worse led display. But we know that it's a Samsung led. So the fundamentals are there. It's probably not going to go st-. It's probably not going to burn in the way that like early LG like this is I will take this quality. Oh, lead over a pixel two XL, oh lead. Because total, there's like a fundamental flaw in those, this is just a slightly lower quality lead, and buy by phone standards of, like what's in the Moto g seven and like the Nokia seven point one leg at this is fine by those standards. But I think I guess I'm looking at it and I have done this for. All of these phones, all the phones that I review and some people don't like that. But I, I pushed back on an I look at a phone holistically. I look at it about I look at it from the perspective of every time I take it out of my pocket. Every time I pick it up is, it's distracting, or it's arts problems distracting. Or is it something that I can get used to and over the course of this? I've used the phone almost every day I stopped using it a couple of days ago and I'll explain why. But I used it as my daily driver basically, from the time I got it, and I'm talking about the three not the three excel from the time I got it until two days ago, and I will say that for everything that I do on my phone. It did not scream worse experience to me. It did not didn't shout at me the way that even using something like a motor G seven, which is admittedly one hundred dollars cheaper than the three. But, like let's use the same phone price range, the motives, the Nokia seven point one. Even even like older one plus phones, I thought fair comparison, but they're similar things about those, I guess Cummings don't get in the way of how you use your phone on a daily basis. I, I agree with that completely. I don't wanna I don't wanna make it sound as though the three has these critical flaws that make it bad to use. It just it works like a four hundred dollar phone and in twenty teen twenty nineteen we expect a three to four hundred dollar phone to not have those like critical mess up, how you use your phone during the day flaws? Right. But I think. I think it comes down to the, you know, we, we've sort of by for the, the, the industry has bifurcated and it's gone to extremes where you either by phone for very little because you don't value your time, you don't value the time you spend with probably the most important piece of technology in your life, or you're willing to spend the money necessary to get it. And I think for something like I know that's not really fair, obviously people who buy cheap phones needs to do that, for many, many reasons that I don't want to undermine the fact that certain situations force you to buy a less expensive phone, and I, I like the fact that Google is raising the bar for inexpensive or less expensive phones. Just like Motorola has done with the G line for so many years. But this pushes certain aspects of it even further and Jerry, I wanna get your ass. I wanna get your take on this because I think what Google has done is try to clone as much of the pixel three experience for better or for worse over to three a. In a way that when you use it, you don't feel like you're using a cheaper phone. And I think they've achieved that for the most part. Maybe I'm an oddball here, but I come at all this from a different perspective. This is what a phone should cost. I can buy a car for thousand dollars. I can't drive a galaxy S ten it won't take me pharmacy you to
