US, EU to launch consultations on tech regulations, trade, China
"First s. e. u. tech trade summit starts today secretary of state antony blinken commerce secretary gina raimondo and us trade representative. Catherine tie will sit down with their european commission counterparts. In pittsburgh the talks are meant to address trade issues around technology including data governance rules and securing supply chains to offset the rise of china and russia. But our reporter. Dan michaels says some issues. Maybe thornier than others. It gets a lot more complicated when you get into specific regulations and how each side overseas these things so for example the eu is much stricter about a personal data than the us. The us has more government surveillance microchips or another area. There's a desire to cooperate because the past year or so has shown how reliant both the. us and europe are on both china but also friendlier places like taiwan and south korea. And there's a desire to develop some independence but what that actually means isn't so clear because us wants the us to be strong. Europe wants europe to be strong so figuring out how they both gain without one losing out to the other. It's it's it's a little dicey

"Unable to buy their own. Homes starts burning down beautiful houses. And i believe that this is also. This film was also in conversation with another film that preceded it. That was also created with still photographs. Can you talk a little bit about that. Yeah that would be. Chris markers found lajja attache which was made pretty much. After you and i were both warrant was made in nineteen sixty two and the biggest fear in nineteen sixty two was a nuclear obliteration in relationship to the cold war You have to think about the cuban missile crisis. Another other things that were happening. Historically at that moment. In time. In which chris marker made lajja tae which is about love and longing and memory. And it's kind of like a pseudo sci fi film made out of stills but it's an incredible political poem to that time and I wanted to do a conversation in terms of that may be at this point in time. the notion of nostalgia and modernism as utopic. Dream has also failed us so using my good friend who i photograph for years pig pen aka whose whose name real name is stash feel piggy and i have a very very close relationship and i asked pig pen to star as the protagonist of this film and it was also the last piece that i made in my west adam studio behind my house because i had moved. Finally i was going to move to a bigger studio and so it is It is about the fact that i will never be able to afford a case study house or any kind of house which was supposed to be affordable at this point in time in which they were made at also mir's the time period of when logic was made and so it's a quandary. It's a quandary to where we are at this point in time but it also is a trans body. It's a queer body and we all know in terms of economics that one of the hardest economical groups's lesbians actually and order to be able to own property or prosper any way because we still do not have wage equality in this country so it was like trying to put in all these ideas of a lot of other bodies of work that i've mapped out all into one piece. Pig pen is one of the two most photographed people in your body of work. Yeah Can you talk a little bit about why you keep coming back to photograph them. Pig pen is just one of the people that i've just really really loved my life as a friend i mean i have gone through so much with pig pen. We have gone through losing so much in our community to performing together with ron eighty two. Just our bodies are are you know are entwined on a very emotional friend way. I would do anything for for pig. Pen and pick penn would do anything for me. And i think it's really really important to also say because it has been brought up in a number of interviews about pig pen being one of the most photographed people as house. One of my best friends. I'd axa Is that I think that a lot of people view this as a potential muse. And i don't view my friendships as muses or who. I photograph over and over as news. I might really enjoy looking at them. But by no means are they muses their friends that i'm i honor in relationship to kind of image making i i have a harder time with us notion of muse. That's interesting would never have occurred to me that that pig pen was your music. If if i had to pick anything or anyone. That was amused. You i would say it would be culture. Yeah exactly thank you for. Wouldn't have even occurred to me. What was it like. Was it different directing so to speak a film verses taking a photograph because it is a film made of photographs. I'm just wondering about that relationship here. No i think that it wasn't big and it was interesting. Because i have a longtime assistant heather rasmussen. Who's just amazing. And does everything for me and it was harder for her than it was for me because she was saying like. Do we need to store report this like. How are you going to do this. And i said it lives in my head. I can't necessarily. what am i going to do. Draw stick figures. Because that's about all. I can draw anyway and i said no this. This piece lives in my head. And i knew that i wanted to create a sense of multiple cameras. I knew that within the stills. I wanted it to. I wanted to rack focus and then bring things into focus. I knew that i to use the newspaper as a platform of what comes in our lives and how we deal with it. I also really well done by designer. I can say is good. And i knew that this was i knew that the protagonist was an artist who lived in their studio. And that's all that they could afford and through as they were making a peace peace extended with the incredible amount of fires. That always happened in california. To fire in itself is one of the most feared elements in california. We have major wildfires burning right now but what. It is in also in terms of notions of loss in a in ideas. Around what we all have lost through. You know Not being able to afford to buy a house to live on the fringe of one's ability in society. What modernism was supposed to apply than you have. Stores like design within reach. Which is you know all. We all know in our our joke of our community. It's designed with outreach. You know and whole foods is whole. Paycheck wholefoods is hall paycheck. So this idea that we could live.

"Forty six times from the shoulder down to the wrist with two inch needles twelve gauge needles. But i remember. We wanted the gauge. To be big enough that it would create like appearance of body armor and a certain and that i wanted the cutting and the needles to be completely precise because i was thinking about whole binds kind of henry the eighth portrait in a certain way and i was thinking about. What the word pervert man in nineteen ninety four and my community especially when there was a beginning of a divide within our own community. And this is very specific. It's not just for what pervert means from jesse helms the holding mapplethorpe photographs on the senate floor. But it also came from internal homophobia of our own community of again the workers. The you know people who practice were also perverts and that there are portions of the gay and lesbian community are quote unquote normal. And i didn't like the notion of normal. I've never liked the binary of normal or abnormal. I'm more interested in the complexity of sexuality and desire and so was Yeah was that moment. Where in the same. My friend steak tattooed dyke on the back of her neck. That i was going to have rail. And do this cutting and that was done in san francisco in a studio. Why was making a portrait series. It was attended by an enormous amount of my friends including the incredible trans historian. Susan stryker was there and it was you know there were The needles were done first. And then i sat in the chair and roelant did the cutting and then we. I put the hood on and we. We made some without the hood and some with hood. But i didn't want my face. Because i wanted the notion of visibility to be placed on language. So what does the word pervert mean. How do we deal with language you know. Is this enough of a pervert for you and it's also really beautiful and then you actually have to deal with the beauty of it as well because it's not dripping blood it's not it's don in such a way that it just looks like almost a red tattoo but it is blood coming to the surface. There is a real elegance to the photo of the way it's constructed. Had you been very involved in body modification at that time as well. How hard was it for you to have forty six to gauge needles. Put through your skin. Not that difficult actually because when you prepare yourself. It's totally different. If i'm walking through the house. And i stubbed my toe on a furniture. I sit there and i weep. I'm like really angry. I can't believe i've heard myself but when you've already been kind of in the leather community and you are doing this in the dungeons on your own you. You know what you're kind of doing and so you. Your mindset is different. I mean if if something goes to the doctor and get gets a shot. The only thing that is hurting is actually the fear of getting the shop. So are kind of relationship to fear is so complicated as human beings. And i was never afraid because i knew that my friends were professionals and railing was a professional and that they had done this time and time again and i had done a lot of play piercing in a lot of cutting out in a private setting and so i wasn't I was very definitive. And knowing what i wanted to do and and had the mindset to go through it did you experience any of the fauria. You that sometimes occurs during body modification. Oh absolutely now your endorphins. Erc going off the rockers at it was funny because if you watch the video tape. There's one moment where it i have. The the group dead can dance playing in the background. Because i love that kind of meditative music and you know you're breathing and you're going through it and then rail and decided to stop for a moment. Try to pop a pimple on my chest. That was driving her crazy. And at that moment i lost my focus and then i started moaning a little bit more once. She went back into the cutting The cutting as much harder than the needles to go through needles are fairly quick. You know but but definitely cuttings are taken enormous amount of concentration. And your and that's partly. Why didn't want my face in. The picture is because i the endorphins are going off with my glasses off. My eyes are slightly crossed and the first thing that people look at in portraits is people's faces usually and it again had to remain on the body and about the body image was first shown to the public in nineteen. Ninety five at the whitney biennial. And you've said that since then you struggle to look at that photo now. How come well. It's not necessarily struggle. It's i haven't set a struggle. It's it's it's a photograph that i don't need to live with. It's a photograph that i made that. I'm proud of and that represented that moment in time. You know i had. I had several collectors at different moments. Say how powerful that peace is live with and that it's in their bedroom and they wake up every morning and i guess i started thinking. Could i wake up every morning but one of the things that i love about photography it defines the sense of time and within the defined sense of time of that you know going back to that geeky kind of cardiac persona notion of the decisive moment. Like pervert is a decisive moment on my part but that doesn't necessarily define me as a sixty year old woman now so the frozenness this of my time in my community. I'm so profoundly. Honored that my friends and i myself chose to use ourselves in relationship to community to make and work on a body of work that created a certain history in a certain idea visibility. But that doesn't mean that were held in that time in the same way that were held in the time in terms of the making of the work. Before i ask you about the third self-portrait self portrait nursing. I want to ask you about your thoughts on domesticity in your work and you said that self portrait cutting was about the relationship between queer nece and domesticity. I'm wondering if you can talk a little bit. More about what that notion between squareness domesticity is or was well throughout history. People fall in love and throughout history and relationship to homophobia especially after say the you know the roaring twenties so to speak and when kind of the puritanical notion of homosexuality ended up entering the kind of religious indoctrination of not being acceptable and so forth and the bible misinterpreted as so forth When you fall in love you often wanna live with the person that you fall in love with and so domestic day was always literally a part of the notion of having a relationship and being in love and and opening up one's home of cohabitation and to then be denied that both on legal fronts as well as just rhetorically within our society is incredibly fraught. And so this notion of coming out of the closet always made me laugh. Because it's a closet is a domestic space closet is where one another's close co. Mingle if you don't have your own walk and 'cause has which i don't but a closet is where a co mingling of the every day happens and so yeah so it's you know. Domestic has always been a part of love and relationship and trying to build a life a home with another person after cutting pervert. You drove across the us in your rv photographing lesbian families. Women who had children who lived in groups couples engaging in everyday household activities across the country and you titled the portfolio domestic. You looking for something specific in that body of work. Well that body of work also was. I had been in a relationship then for three to four years with another amazing queer photographer. Important lesbian artists on historical level. Who should be. She's in books like stolen glances. But it's Her name is co. Sheila brooke and we are worried by us together. We were gonna do. We have been in three year relationship where she ironically was living on. Sanborn have where. I ironically lived with pam. My first domestic relationship and i was still in custody..

"As a collaboration with my good friend. From collards richard hawkins. Who's a fellow artist where we started making portraits of our mutual friends at that point and then he realized that it was my body of work and he just said this is. This is yours. Go with it But he he introduced me really thinking about holbein. And what nobility is and what that is within our community. And we had amazing extensive conversations about that. And richard as a very brilliant person who i felt just helped lead of a pathway for me in terms of continuing to photograph the community after being in having understand that the title of the show being in having was a play on psychoanalyst jacques locations idea that men have the phallus while women as the embodiment of erotic. Desire and art are the fellas and when i was reading this. I'm like is this deep serious so this is serious and i have to tell you that. A title came from the woman with her arms crossed over her chest. Peeing in on our backs. So she is an amazing philosopher from toronto canada by the name of annemarie smith and she was one of the head kind of political philosophers and teachers at cornell but she was my lover at the time and Met her in canada at a bar. You know and she had been making postcards with a friend That were really awesome. Roddick postcards from this collective in canada. And i'm sorry. I don't remember the collective's name anymore. But i was in the bar going. Hey do you. Who made these. And then the woman. I was talking to said. Yeah my myself and my next door neighbor did and then it started a very long friendship and love affair with amery smith including the portrait. That's on the bed the self-portraits on our bed when she came to visit me in california while i was in grad school that was a student's installation in their studio and they let us have it as a little of private palace so to speak during her visit august wrapped together. That's the beautiful thing about community right. Is you meet people. And you're in this kind of you know in the eighty s. You're you're going through so much as a community especially in relationship to politics aids and and visibility and just all of these inner weavings are really also part of my ability to thank.

"I thought that i would be accepted in society. I carried that. Fear an internal homophobia within me and it didn't happen like legitimately until i moved to san francisco and i was sitting on a curb with my best friend dean at that moment in time dean moser who i had met at a residence club that i was working for my room and board. While i went to san francisco art institute and dean thought i had a crush on him and so dean said cathy. Something i have to tell you. I'm i'm i'm gay and i was like. Oh well i i am too you know. And that was the first time that it was actually spoken. And then there was no hesitation after speaking. What's so interesting to me. In terms of looking at your body of work is despite the difficulty that you might have experienced. And the inner homophobia you did seem right from the very beginning in your body of work to i. Embrace isn't even the right word. but celebrate. Celebrate your your sexuality and your gayness. Yeah no i think that i did but it wasn't right away actually took some time. I mean there was the side person kathy. Ob ride who everybody who is a friend called me calls me cathy by cathy opie published in on our backs magazine not catherine opie so i took on these different kinds of personas i suppose to again create a different compartments of my life and what is now. I guess that's in some ways like having multiple closets in one tiles. And i i think that you know Really beyond being kathy on our backs and celebrating that through a queer culture. It wasn't until becoming a part of act up and queer nation that i decided to make my work publicly about mike awareness. But i would have to say that. A good portion of my work was trying to be very serious street photographer in san francisco and then quickness within my work at cal arts was actually the dissemination and observation of master-plan communities in southern california which i kind of grew up. Been from moving. From sandusky to rancho bernardo pie california and watched that turn into masterplan community. So i think you know. The quickness was always also involved in relationship to how do we fit squirrelled. And you know if there's this kind of separation in relationship to idea of community than how do i portray my community and i think it was a quandary for quite some time. The quadri also. I think began even before you committed to photography as a profession. At at one point after you graduated high school you considered becoming a kindergarten teacher and even went to Virginia mont college to study early childhood education. I mean that's in thinking about the pathways of a life. You were on that. Pathway i was i profoundly love children like i really really loved children and i suppose that's even the other aspect of clearness is. How was i going to become a mom. Because that was always what i wanted to be. Even as a child. I would tell my mom that i was going to have twelve children for some reason that i saw Yeah that would have been too many. Yeah so kindergarten you know. Be a camp counselor for a long time. And i really liked kids so i just imagined that i would be pretty fun. Kindergarten teacher a year into your studies to become a teacher. You call your mom and said. I'm an artist and i need to go to art school. How did she respond. I mean she was both your parents really encourage you to be this kindergarten teacher. Had they respond to you wanting to be an artist. Well my mom was the one who was supporting my ability to go to college. My father was it was financially capable but chose to not financially support my endeavor of receiving a college degree. He kind of believed that when you turn eighteen. You're on your own kind of guy generous now right so so my mom you know. That was hard for her. She actually took a loan off of her car that she owned outright for me to go ahead and move to san francisco and i picked san francisco art institute. I wasn't thinking about. San francisco is being a very gay city. It was just like in california and a really good notable arts school that had like ansel adams and minor white and dorothea laying and the legacy of that program in terms of photography is is actually. Why chose it and mom's supported. She said okay. But i'm only going to be able to pay the tuition kathy. This is a really big tuition. And just so you know in nineteen eighty one. It was about seven thousand dollars a year and she was able to get me all the way through paying the tuition and i did get some scholarship money and then grad school was again up to me so if i was going to go to graduate school than i had to do it on my own. You left san francisco to pursue your mfa at california institute of the arts in valencia. You said that that transition sucked in. What way did it suck well. I was leaving a community. That was profoundly also becoming decimated from aids and i all of a sudden moved back into a very hot off southern california environment in the middle of a master plan community that i had exited when i was you know basically nineteen years old from from living with at home in in powei and to be all of a sudden going from the bay area of this incredible city. And it's the first time. I had ever lived in a city back to the suburbs where it was really hot and i couldn't wear my leather jacket year. Round like i could in san francisco and being kind of newly possessed of my my clearness my being dyke. It wasn't even queen s. I don't even think we use the word. Queer and in one thousand nine hundred five but my my kind of being a dyke and what that meant for me. Yeah and it was even i. Even though i had catherine lord and millie wilson and mazing people around me at cal arts who celebrated that and definitely added onto my ability to understand. Theory and feminism. And you know had. Douglas crimp come through the school enormous about people at that time period. It's still wasn't san francisco. Yeah as a way to cope. You started photographing planned community. That was being built across the road from your apartment which ultimately became part of your thesis portfolio in this work included photographs of quote matching.

"Three hundred images as well as essays written by the likes of the new yorkers hilton ounce. She joins me today to talk about the evolution of her extraordinary career. Catherine opie welcome to design matters. Thank you so much dovey and designed does matter. So i'm happy to be here. Thank you thank you catherine. I understand that you still have a garfield stuffed animal. And a third place bowling trophy from the nineteen seventies on display in your studio. I actually think it's eleventh place a more worse in my mind. Yeah okay why do you still have these objects and way on display. Well you can see me. I have a shelf behind me. If people were on zoom they would be able to see a shelf behind me that numerous books and little things and recently my mom was cleaning out her house and whereby ready to move her to another place. That is for Living at eighty five and a really beautiful way and she brought me this trunk of objects. And when i opened it it was just. I had the shelves. And i thought oh. Well i'll just have this weird garfield stuffed animal and one can't throw out the eleventh place. Plaque of bullying from sandusky ohio. No i agree. I have to confess. I have a little trophy from sixth grade coming in third place in the three legged race and that that is also important to be still a little bit better than me. Well yeah just. Just the only evidence of athletic prowess i will ever have in my life. So yeah gathering you. Were born in sandusky ohio. Your mother was a gym teacher until she had children. Your dad ran. His family's art supply. Company is true we also had one of the country's preeminent collections of republican political memorabilia both republican and democratic. Actually it was. It was a large overview of of political paraphernalia including all the lincoln ferro types so it was quite an extensive fairly important collection. Actually what has happened to the collection He sold it upon us leaving. Ohio and i think that that person and donated to the smithsonian in my father's obituary. It said that he donated it to the smithsonian but my father was a frugal businessman. And i think he sold it to somebody who then donated and i understand. He gave you an embroider. Commemorative ribbon made after the assassination. Of abraham lincoln. Is that true. Yes that is true. I have that upstairs here on the studio in this special little box. That is actually a family. Business box opie craft. And it's kind of his treasure chest that He's sent to me before he passed away. So that i would have these different little moments including he always carried in ohio buckeye in his pocket for lock. So it's just this little treasure chest of things that included the lincoln ribbon because lincoln happened to be assassinated. Unfortunately on what is my birthday april fourteenth. Oh wow now. Was your father. Republican by father was republican up until Obama ran and when obama ran my father's switched to being a democratic voter of for the reasons that the republican party was no longer the republican party that he believed in and he did not like the conservatives and he believed that women had a right to choose and he believed having lesbian daughter that i had rights and so forth and so the republican party that he grew up with was no longer an affiliation that he wanted to have he must have been extraordinarily proud to know that your work was hanging in the obama. White house yeah. No he was. I mean he was very proud of me. He you know one of my biggest nervous moments was both him and my stepmother. Coming to the nineteen ninety-five whitney biannual opening. Because it was the first time. I was ever in a major museum. Show and obviously my weirdness was very much on display there but he just rode along with it in a in a very good way you know surprisingly so i want to talk about the exhibit and a little bit but i want to start first with your first experiences with photography. I understand it eight years old while in the fourth grade. You wrote a book. Report on the photography of lewis. Hine why lewis hine. And how did you first find out about him. Well was actually not on lewis hine. It was on the photograph of the girl from the carolina mills. It was in my social studies book. And i was reading about child labor and i was supposed to be writing a report about child labor and the history of that in the us. And but i spoke about the photograph. And what the photograph told me and it made me realize that also probably growing up with all this political memorabilia around me that history is made within an image culture and so i had that awareness of apparently and asked for a camera on my ninth birthday. So i could be. You know a documentary photographer. So you always knew what you wanted to do and to be in a way. I guess i mean i guess so. It seems now that it's hard to believe that. That was really what i was going to decide to be. But at that moment it was important to me and the camera was bought for me for my birthday. And i used it throughout my life to document my life and that is including even when we moved to california. I used by babysitting money to build a dark room in in our house where i ruined. The family tiles of the bathroom with chemistry design does matter. Yeah your mother gets mad at you if you get fixture and developer oliver bathroom tiles but was a spare man. It was my bathroom attached room so it was perfect way to make a dark room. Yeah i spent a lot of hours in there. I understand that you went about making friends. When you move to san diego or outside of san diego by taking photos and i believe this is also when you had. Your first crush is that. I had my first crush on a very beautiful woman. Who was a profoundly. Amazing actor by the name of serene. Monet flack and she lives in england at this point but She was my first major crush where i was still trying to figure out certain things but just couldn't not be around three and would you know i grew roses and i would bring her rose every day and so it was pretty crush worthy actually. Although sri didn't realize that i had a crush on her. I met up with her later in england. And said you know. I was completely in love with you in high school and she was like you were. I thought you were just my best friend. I was like oh well you. You knew from a young age that you were gay but said that the lack of role models around you made coming out a difficult process. And you and i are the same exact age both born in nineteen sixty one and so i didn't come out until much much later in life and so i fully understand that sort of difficulty. What was the most difficult aspect for you. I think that until i moved to san francisco again. I didn't have it surrounding me. I was called names in high school. I was called a dyke. Was you know kind of harassed that way being homosexual scared me..

TV's White Guys Are in Crisis
"So we're going to try this episode to critique the position of white guys on television without sort of repeating the problem that white guys on television currently present which is that. they're not the point and yet they're the point. I want to dive in by talking about this great piece. Catherine wrote for vulture about the crisis. That white guys are going through genetic. Maybe you'd think it's not really an emergency. So bad so white guys are still of course all over television as they are in the world but they are on television in a different way in certainly in some new shows and they have been in the past. And you can see that in shows like peacock sitcom rutherford falls. Amc's genre bending. Kevin can himself and the two big hits of summer. Hbo's hotel drama. The white lotus featuring a bevy of white guys who were going to get into and of course ted lasso. Basically the white guy who used to be. Tv's default protagonists are not but who are they. What does it say about them. And us catherine have i. We're gonna keep talking now. I would just shamelessly coach from your piece. So why don't you tell us. It's central argument. Yeah for what i think the framing of it as a crisis it has been really interesting to see responses from two different sides of sort of people who look at the headline that are immediately put off by it. People who are like. I don't want to hear about a crisis for white guys like i'm done. We talked about them too much. And then of course from the other like terrifying side of white guys being like extremely mad at me and sending me all kinds of emails but it was in response to something. I started noticing as a pattern in new television shows that were coming out this summer. And something i saw. Rutherford falls and kevin can f- himself in particular. I had this sudden realization that they're like the same show at the core

I started noticing as a pattern in new television shows that were coming out this summer and it was something i saw in. Rutherford falls and kevin can f- himself in particular. I had this sudden realization that they're like the same show at the core and the idea is that there used to be this white guy who was the obvious default protagonist of the show. He would be like the dad figure he'd be the beloved buffoon he might be like the chosen one character or the love interest or this charismatic. Anti hero figure and now that we have begun to look at the stories that we put on television and say like what if we had other kinds of people in the world who are the main characters that white guy figure no longer works as the
Wet Notes 8-30-21
"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here. In connecticut we face the challenges of tropical storm on re just barely below hurricane strength and at the last minute it shifted east and we avoided the brunt of the wind rhode island wasn't as fortunate and now we have item a cat for hurricane hit louisiana. Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes. Here on scuba shot radio for august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one
"catherine" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Right now. yes there in. Thank you so much for having me on today. I'm really excited to be here. We'll thank you a lot of things. Want to talk to you about. But first i want to start with lane kiffin. We just listening to the auburn coach. Talk about covert and vaccinations. And i don't know if i'd seen her coach. Get more attention. Positive attention than coach kiffin. I saw him on one of the major network shows the other day. Where did i think it was in the wall street journal. This week there was a there was a big article on him. Talk a little bit about his influence. Not only on his football team but on that campus. Yes sir as you know lane. Kiffin did have almost as the first. Sec team to reach one hundred percent vaccination rate and so. I think he's really just set an example for our university and for the city of oxford in general just to push that vaccines are here and his team is a hundred percent vaccinated. So they're ready to play. They're not gonna forfeit a game because of cova well and speaking of the season. It's it's around the corner. And i want to get to the grove in the second because i know you've done a lot of reporting on that but Just describe on that. Campus catherine the optimism for this on this football team. Yes sir. everyone is so excited to get back in bought hemingway and just to see the second year of lane. Kiffin squad this offense a strong where powerful under mackrell and we're ready to win and we're ready to play and interestingly the critics agree as i'm sure you know a lot of people are giving the rebels a chance to to have a really strong finish. Well you can't talk about ole miss without talking about the grove. And i it is just one of it may well a lotta people think it is the best game tradition. I know you probably agree with me on that but take take us a little bit deeper into a little deeper dive into this because that was not really a big part or any part of college football last year this year. What is going to be like on the grove correct. So last year we did not the grove and we didn't have trash can fridays. Which is one of the students favored things here. Almost every friday they put out red and blue trash cans thousands of them covering the grove in the circle. Just to get ready for the tends to set up that night so one's really looking forward to that and just there is no atmosphere like the grove. I actually grew up in auburn tigers. Fan so i to experience the grove until i came to this so being able to experience it for the first time. There's nothing like it. So i'm so excited for these freshmen. And even the sophomores to experience it for the first time. Okay catherine I've been to The grove many many times even on that friday. And and and i'm gonna ask you to describe that in the mid but but but auburn fans as you know. We'll talk about the tiger walk as as a religious experience. So i'm not trying get you in trouble with your with your countryman here but how would you describe the difference between the two because they want one is Football team coming in another one is more of an experience all weekend long. But they're both pretty cool. I would say so yes I do have a heart for the grub though in a harvard. Welcome champions. I think it's there's something a little extra special about it Being able to see lane kiffin lead his team for the first time this year through. The of champions is definitely going to be exciting. He's such a personality and a great exciting coach to watch so i'm excited to see his game day outfits to those are really popular on twitter on instagram and there. There's just nothing like the grove. You have to be here at least once in your life. If you're any sort of college football fan to be able to experience it cares. What i'm gonna let you describe it we We've been there many times For the saturday. Show and on friday while we're doing our program all of a sudden i'm looking behind me. I have no earthly idea. What is going on but people are running like it's the california goal rush for those who have never been there. Could you describe what you alluded to a minute ago. But what is this all about yes so the grove is our home game day tradition. It's a huge patch of grass really in the center of campus and every friday every year. Every home game. We sat out thousands of trash cans to kind of to to serve service trashcans for the tents that get setup so friday night there's a race to set up your tents and once you wake up saturday morning. The grove is covered. You can't see anything except just red and blue ole miss tents and you just kind of mingle in linger before the game There's some food there's some drinks and then our spirit squads do of grove show so our cheerleaders are rebel. Ads are banned. They kind of send us off before The of champions and then lane will lead his team into vaught hemingway and get ready for the games catherine I've always wondered Matter who you are a whether you're the most influential ole miss alarm or or just plain old folks like us you're not there's no reserve spot. It's every every person for themselves so there are some season passes in season reserve spots. There's wanting specific The zebra tent. That's a pretty famous ten on campus. And so you you pretty much. If you buy a season ten you're gonna have you're gonna have a spot but there are lots of students that actually get paid by people to go set up their tents for them at night which is really funny without revealing any campus secrets. And what kind of money can can A young student make on On a wealthy alarm. Gosh i think i read somewhere. That students will get paid anywhere from around two hundred dollars to get there at seven pm and wait for wait for the ten spots to start opening up so a couple of hundred bucks on a weekend. It's pretty good for a college student. Maybe more than i had in my entire four years of college. However let me ask you this. Are there particular spa. Aside from where the high the high end people camp out at the grove is not that big. I know people think it's just a massive place. So is there a. Is there a position on the grow that you want to be locked down on. I think any in the grove is a great spot. Like you said it it really. Isn't that big. Any ten is walking distance within one. Another so you can start on one end by the grove stage and walk all the way towards the edge of the grove in and you can make that walk in probably three minutes pretty small. let me Ask about Your ascendancy in in communications and what you're doing now as the campus sports editor How where where did you. Where did you grow up to your an auburn fan. So my great grandparents grandparents and my mom and dad all went to auburn but i grew up in orlando and i've eventually decided that almost was the place for me pretty much after you visit at once. We do call it. The velvet ditch. You're stuck so if you don't wanna come to almost don't visit it because you'll end up coming here. Say yes so i am. So how did it go over with your family when you When you pull the trigger on this. I think they were all expecting me to say i was going to go to auburn so it was definitely a surprise. But they're so supportive. My parents love coming to the grove. They're coming this year for the first time in two years. So they're so excited to be back and not to sound like one of your parents but what Ultimately would you like to do with your degree in your experience At the school paper. Yes sir so. I am a journalism and marketing major here with minors in english and business and ultimately i think my goal is to work for professional sports team in the.

Catherine Bondonno of Edith Cowan University on Leafy Greens and Heart Disease
"Imagine if you could add years to your life and improve your chances of not dying from heart disease imagine if it only took one small change but first why is heart. Disease important is the cause of nearly eighteen million lives lost each year. The sad fact is that a large number of these deaths are preventable. Why because the development of the majority of risk factors for heart disease can be avoided. The good news is that we can reduce risk for heart disease through our diet. We have found that eating one cup per day or vegetables like lettuce. Beetroot and spinach can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease. We analyze data from over fifty. Three thousand participants of the danish died cancer and health. Study over a twenty three year period. We evaluated the died followed by participants focusing on vegetable nitrate intake against health outcomes related to the hot. We found that participants who followed a nitrate rich vegetable diet. Had about a two and a half millimeter. Mercury lower systolic blood pressure and a twelve to twenty six percent lower risk of heart disease compared to participants consuming less nitrate rich vegetables and other key finding was at one cup of leafy green vegetables was enough to reach the optimal levels of nitrate calculated at fifty nine milligrams per day. We did not see for the benefits in people who ate higher levels of nitrate rich vegetables. So eating just one cup of knighthood rich vegetables can therefore have a valuable impact on the health of your heart

Katherine Goldstein, Host of 'The Double Shift', on Building Audience Relationships
"Podcast thing is in many ways still treated effectively as a broadcast medium. that's like this one directional pipe yet. that the listenership feels exceptionally I think involved with the hosts like the day. They may be feel more like a. They have the relationship even though there. It's not bidirectional all the time from communications out of. I'm kind of curious like given kind of the ways in which podcasting works like. What are those relationships. Look like with your audience like how do you have. You have that relationship with them beyond the financial. Certainly there's the financial membership side of things but like what what does a relationship look like with your audience catherine so this year. I feel like we've had some great breakthrough. We've had a membership program. Since we we started as an experiment in our first season in people signed up which is amazing. But we didn't really offer we're just like can you help us like we didn't really offer much by way of benefits but so one of the ways risk deepening relationship this year. Which has been really cool. Is that actually. We've had Listeners become guests and that has been really cool because We're always looking for a Surprising unconventional stories and for example we did a whole series on the true cost of the pandemic for moms in we It was a partnership with the guardian. We did a bunch of reporting and we did a lot of call outs to. Are you know audience and Two of the five people we ended up featuring wor listeners of the show one was a waitress in mississippi who had written me a number of times with different story ideas and i thought But then you know. She told me a bit about her life. And i was like actually. I think you're right for this story that we're working on and she. We ended up doing the whole episode about her experience with losing her job and her mental health struggles in getting addicted all these things that like but she very much came to us because she was already in our listener community in the other one was a young mom who was a new orleans nightclub worker and we talked about her career panic struggles and you know what what happened. We ended up featuring on the show as well so also when people hear that listeners are coming from the show. I feel like that they hear that a guest that they have curtis thirty minute episode within their emotionally vested in were listener who reached out that makes them feel like it's more of a two way street and that there is more potential for

"catherine" Discussed on Storytelling with Puck
"This podcast. For just a minute said i could remind you you're listening to the magnificent catherine williams on storytelling with park. Put coast a love of books from a young age as inspired her to get to where she is now but choosing which path to take at the right. Time is never easy gladly. Catherine chose to take off post by it. All podcast so quicker and to make sure we spend our time wisely and dig deeper into how she got to where she is today plus she might even mention a little about how she helps you to self publish your very. Don't forget will end this episode as we end every episode with a pump creations story but for now let's get back to types it out of interest guessing it depends on the size of the page. But what is that. Maximum number of characters. Yeah it depends on the source. Of expect i i. I was a bit cheeky. He lost on purpose. 'cause i want to cheat to say it depends if my still counts such a just about everything. So is that tell. Tell us a little bit about. Why why you so often are saying it depends when people ask you kind of effect you off because most questions that i can almost a it does depend in there all. How long is a piece of string christian. Say well mybookie spooky. Three thousand words. How many pages would it be will to pinch. What paint size have you got any images to be senate as well and i now think watching on a journal somebody recently so they'd go pages. Have nothing accepts. Loins for writing in them and although it was initially foot about one hundred pages it's ended up at two hundred because of that they space needed for people to ryan yet yet yet so it's pretty much doubled I find that really interesting. Because i think what happens quite often. Is that as much as self publishing as you say is britain More acceptable now. I think that a lot of people think that self publishing as kind of stoke standard on sir you can pretty much just whatever. It is that you're writing. It doesn't matter what you're writing. You can have a template you can follow it in you. Put out there into the world and it'll be fine. It doesn't it doesn't mean anything but i've learned a lot from you actually from reading so much of what she do now. You change people's minds this is that it's no it's no simple. There's a lot to it. There's a lot to think about to get it right..
Lifeguard Shortages Will Keep Some Philadelphia Pools From Reopening
"Pools are opening for the first time in two years. But due to a lifeguard hiring shortage, about a third of the city's pools were not able to open this summer. Robbie Broad from member station W. H Y Y has more from opening day in Philadelphia. James Finnegan playground in Southwest Philly. The sun beats down on the hottest day of the season to date, with temperatures nearly reaching 100 degrees. Dozens of kids scream and cannonball into the deep end, exploding through the calm blue water inside the first full to reopen in the city. Aleah Adams is splashing around in the shallow end. And yeah, just a bit too, man. I've come to this school a lot and I go to the wreck so not alive last year, her mom say to atoms struggled to find activities from Malaya. So she's excited that now the city's kids have a safe place to cool off people. Um out of trouble on the street. They could be here. Swim. Who'll down ain't gotta be hot. So, yeah, I do think it's good. This year. Lifeguard recruitment was especially difficult since Phillies Parks and Recreation Department was unable to use its usual strategies in high schools across the city. To attract more lifeguards. The city increased wages to $15 an hour conducted a media campaign urging people to apply and had virtual job fairs.

That many people will know your name as an author. This is your third book but also as a successful working actress. What made you decide to write. Acting has low downtime. Even when you have a job you'll in trailers or your in 'cause going to sat. I dunno persons of sis reading so many scripts will the time i sort of go into in the beca of just the sheer quantity of things that get sent to you before he could actually get apart and something. The quantity of stories i read. I just thought. I'll give it a go and it was wanted to burke and people say i'm you know i'm writing about marching burkan and then it gets to a point where you sort of don't want them anymore. So i so i won't tell anyone i'm doing because i could stand the pressure of people constantly asking me how it was going so i just all right set one tiny. When i'm writing it. I'll see how far guys if i finish and yeah it's been a process since then you'll pretend to be knitting like all the other actors. Yeah exactly or i do not. Oh my phone when i working in my trailer so it can often look like i'm playing angry. Birds or something for match easy. My notes out. Are there other ways besides giving you copious downtime and your trailer that being an actor has informed your work as a writer in terms of piecing or characterization or anything god yes yes you got a real feel for what works at a seen. And what doesn't you'll be there on the day on set. The scene isn't quite whacking. And you know if you've got a good direct to the lafon just say to the actors. Why don't you see where it goes or will look keep the scene running a bit longer. It's your guys. not true. Impulse towards improvising is really helpful and always say to other actors.

Ethiopia Votes in Greatest Electoral Test yet for Abiy
"We start in Ethiopia, Voting has started there in regional and federal parliamentary elections. The vote, of course, has already delayed twice, very controversial. And it's going to be the first test at the ballot for Prime Minister Abdi Ahmed and his prosperity party since he was appointed in 2018 and formed the party. The election comes of course, sadly, with the background of ethnic tensions, along with conflict and hunger in the north as well and quite a large proportion of Ethiopians won't get to vote. I've been speaking with Catherine Bureau hanker, BBC's Africa correspondent. She's an Agar o town, which is the constituency of Prime Minister Ahmed. We've been here since six a.m. the moment when the polls opened, and people already coming in streaming in an orderly fashion into the polling station here, we're on the high Street and really, there's pretty much no traffic is just people walking in trying to exercise their right to vote. It's not a public holiday in Ethiopia. So of course, many parts of the country people will have to Juggle work and coming out to cost their ballot. Now what we know from the Election board is that 20% of constituencies in this country will not be taking part in the election today, and that's because of security reasons, but also logistical reasons, so we have t dry in the north, where a conflict Has been going on for eight months, people there will not be voting. There are also other regions like the Somali region and Harari region where, because of issues with the ballot papers, people there will not be voting as well. That also presumably delays, a result does it When will we know from what we know from the election board is that within a week's time, we will get some preliminary results of the ballots that have been caused today. But in regions where people are not able to vote, the elections
Behold! The Anus: An Evolutionary Marvel
"To peer into the soul of sea cucumber. Don't look to its face. It doesn't have one gently. Turn that blobby body around and gaze deep into it's marvelous multifunctional anus. This catherine woo a science writer. For the atlanta. The sea cucumber's posterior is so much more than an exit hole for waste. It has also a makeshift mouth. That gobbles up. Bits of algae a faux lung loudest with tubes that exchange gas but the surrounding water and a weapon that in the presence of danger can launch a sticky stringy web of internal organs entangle predators. And if you haven't guessed already this episode yes is about the anus because the amos is an evolutionary marvel and amos of a sea cucumber is a spectacular example it can even on occasion be home for shimmering pearl fish which wriggle inside the bum when it billows open to breathe. It would not be inaccurate to describe a secret number as an extraordinary amos that just so happens to have a body around it now needs doesn't get as much respect as it deserves partially because of our human taboos around them or is katie puts it. We've turned amos's across the tree of life into cultural underdogs and scientific one too. I imagine it's a little weird for some of these people to like. Go into a poster session and just be like hey. Do you want to look at pictures of all these businesses. I've been looking at in my lab. There's this huge taboo around it Just in general pop culture. And i think that definitely does bleed into science.

Hang Stack. . It's great to be here. . So let's talk a little bit about one of the areas where I think that many entrepreneurs may not focus specifically on, but , it's an area that I think that <hes>. . We are remiss if we don't spend some time on it and it's talking about the world of leadership. . So can you share maybe before we get into the actual topic for the sake of our our entrepreneurs that are in our community? ? Can you share what your span on leadership is and how they got to be something that you became an expert in? ? Yeah, , you know I I come come from probably an unusual path I was an environmental and sustainability. . Consultant. . And I did that for a long time and I have a master's in that area. . and. . You know. . I do have a desire to change the world and impact the world and I guess that's why was in that career to start with. .

And yet we so often focus on especially as leaders in business, , we focus on solving them from the outside. . And it's not your best leverage point. . So before you take a deeper dive into outside versus inside, , can you maybe just take a thirty thousand foot approach and maybe what some of the things that we're working on that are maybe Say Wrong and leadership because there's so many different styles of of <hes> of leader in types of leaders that are out there and they're so many different ways in which we can lead. . But what are you saying is some of the common pitfalls within the realm of Leadership Today Well in leadership development. . It's based on trade theory a lot, , and that means that somebody goes out and maybe they do some research on some leaders or maybe they just come up with a list of sort of must have characteristics. . And then they go in and they say, , Hey, , these are the must have characteristics i. . mean you seen those articles all the time of the year that ten, , the twenty the I saw one that was one, , hundred and one. .

"Of Russia in seventeen sixty two in seventeen sixty three. She had an opera house built at the Winter Palace. Then in the seventeen eighty S. She replaced that Opera House with the Hermitage theatre. She also founded the imperial theatrical school in Seventeen seventy nine opera in particular became these theatrical genre of the Imperial Court. Her fostering of theater in culture went beyond these more formal activities. She also encourage the whole of the Russian aristocracy to become patrons of the arts. If you were part of the wealthy elite it was expected that you would commission works of art. Higher Music tutors for your children and produce creative works of art yourself. There were of course people who thought all this emphasis on theater and the arts was really excessive and that it showed that the empress was too focused on the trappings of luxury. But Catherine really saw all of this as an opportunity to shape Russia as an empire as the monarch she had the ability to influence or even dictate rushing culture and she could use that ability to influence how people both within and outside of Russia regarded Russia itself and her as the empress in other words she was using theatre to create an image of herself as monarch and Russia as an empire to present to the rest of the world. Some of this was about Russia's place among the nations if Russia was producing great works of Art Literature Music and theatre than that was evidence that it was equal to the great powers of Europe but it was also about educating the Russian people eighteenth century Russian theatre was really didactic. Stories often had a very clear. Moral heroic characters overcame obstacles and demonstrated qualities like bravery modesty generosity. Bad Behavior on the other hand was satirized and mocked so catherine stories and plays and operas also were reinforcing ideas of what a monarch should be. And how the people should view the monarch some of this was to reinforce how people should treat her as the empress. It was kind of her own. Pr Machine but it was also about paving the way for her son and presumed heir. Pavle Patrick anglicized as Paul. She was creating works that would illustrate how a prince should behave and how a prince should be treated for him and for her other descendants. Catherine's Opera Scott Boras or opera tales. Fit Right into this. Sky Is a Russian word for story but it is also often used to mean a fairy tale in these were comic operas with both Sung and spoken dialogue along with dances and musical interludes. Most of them played for the aristocracy at the Hermitage theatre for the public at Saint Petersburg's comedy theater. These were lighter. Works had happy endings and they often wrapped up with the main character. Getting married Catherine Thought of the Opera Scott's go as a distinctly Russian form of opera equal to comic opera forms in Italy France and Germany. Catherine wrote the Libretto for these opera Scott skits although she didn't write verse so she left the poems in the song lyrics to her collaborators. She was still really involved. In this part of the Libretto though she usually had a direction in mind for the songs and the musical themes and she personally selected the composers lyricists and then worked with them to carry out that direction when it came to producing the performance. She also had an active hand in the costumes and sets and the direction a lot of times. She went to multiple rehearsals and gave the actors notes when everyone want to get notes from the empress. That's terrifying. I mean like I did theater in high school. I studied it in college. It was my major and getting notes from anybody was extremely. It of getting notes for the ruler of the country during her lifetime. Catherine was not often credited by name when the opera was performed or when it's Libretto was published but especially when it came to the performances for the aristocracy at the Hermitage theatre. People generally knew that they were watching something that the empress had written so chronologically were staged Catherine's for opera skies. Cas were five both slavs champion of garage the brave and bold night critic and the WOEBEGONE HERO CAUSA. Meta vich performed for the first time between seventeen eighty six and seventeen eighty-nine all four of them tell the story of a teenage parents who grows and matures over the course of the opera into them. The princess mother is a widow. Who's raising him alone? And in general the female characters and each of these operas are all women and girls who support the prince somehow so the mother's sisters that nurses the Nannies and the prince's eventual bride Feb. was first staged in April of seventeen eighty six and it was based on an earlier. Scott that Catherine had written called the tale of Prince chlor which was printed in English as Ivansevic or the rows without trickles that stings not another great title. It tells the story of a Prince who is not allowed to travel until he has shown that he has the right traits to rule the country traits like modesty generosity obedience and boldness to make sure the opera's use of Russian colloquialisms and folktales rang true. Catherine got her servant Christian Brzezinski to review it. Count Valentin Esterhazy. Who was the French Ambassador to the Russian court wrote to his wife about seeing a later staging of this opera at the Hermitage theatre saying quote. I have never seen a spectacle more varied nor more magnificent. There were more than five hundred people on stage. While there were hardly fifty of US spectators even though the little grand dukes and the four grand duchesses were there with their governors and governesses so exclusive as the empress in granting admission to Hermitage both lovitz champion of Nava garage debuted at the Hermitage theatre November of seventeen eighty six. It was adapted from a story in Lebanon's Russian folktales. This was a collection of Russian fairy tales but like many early collections of Russian Tales. It is not clear. How many were folktales? How many were adaptations? And how many were just popular stories? Bozovic champion of Nava Gerrad the general structure of a Russian epic poem or by Lena. The brave and bold night critic was first staged in September of seventeen eighty seven and this one is really rooted in Russian fairy tales and folklore. If there's a lot of more magical elements like Lacey's or would goblins Bobby Yagiz in there. There's a flying carpet and tablecloth that magically produces a meal and servants to attend it when it's unfolded there are other magical items as well. The hero of this one is Russian folk Richter Ivan Saraiva to save his sisters from all kinds of fairy tale peril. That sounds borderline Miyazaki. I'm in and lastly the woebegone hero. Because of it was a very silly satire. It was first staged in January of seventeen eighty nine. It's target is widely interpreted as Sweden's King Gustav the third it made its debut during the Russo Swedish war of seventeen eighty eight seventy ninety and it was pulled from the repertoire at the Hermitage theatre after the war was over. This isn't the only reason that it's interpreted as being about. Gustav Catherine and Gustav were cousins and the similarities. Were strong enough. That Catherine's adviser Gregory Potemkin advised her that the show might annoy Gustav and prolong the war. The music for this one was by Spanish composer. Visentin Martin Solaire. Who was very famous in his day but also didn't speak. Russian so in addition to this show's really satirical tone. There was something of a disconnect between the music and the lyrics. According to one of the books that I read when I was working on this Katherine does not seem to have really mind that. Like sort of disconnect because he was really really famous and she was glad to have him working on the show. I think for a comic opera might actually also be a little fantastic to have things slightly off. Beat not quite a musical tone. That doesn't quite match with the dialogue. Is saying it would almost be hard to do if you tried to do it. Without involving people that really are not from the same culture language background. These four operas had a lot in common but they also fell into four different genres. Favier was a morality tale the brave and bold night a critic was a magical tale. Both lovitz champion of novocur garage was a heroic epoch and the woebegone hero. 'cause amid of it was a satire in the decades that followed each of these evolved into their own genres with their own standards tropes within the Russian theatre and opera so these are all comic operas but the nine operas that Catherine Pan included some more serious work as well. We'll get to more on that. After a sponsor break though as we mentioned.

"Being sponsored by Hulu and their new series. The great which comes out on May fifteenth so the great is a not exactly historical series about Catherine the Great. That is somebody who previous hosts Kadian. Sarah did a three part series on back in August of two thousand ten even at three parts though there are so many other things we could talk about with Catherine the Great and so we had tons and tons of ideas when who asked us about sponsoring the show. We wanted to choose something that was more toward the fun end of the spectrum because the greats tone is pretty satirical and comedic. That was often comedic was the operas that Catherine Migrate wrote. And that is what we gonNA talk about today. We don't want to repeat too much of what is already in the archive but we do. WanNa give folks a quick refresher on. Who Catherine the? Great was just so you have some context in seventeen twenty nine. She was born Sophie. Frederick August a princess from Prussia and when she was fourteen she was selected to marry the man who would become Russian Emperor Peter the third after arriving in Russia and converting to Russian Orthodoxy. Sofi became known as you Kathrina which is anglicized. As Catherine Catherine's marriage to Peter did not go well. He was virtually her opposite stubborn. Rebellious immature uncultured and ill mannered without the aptitude or temperament to be a good emperor and he also humiliated her in public. They both had affairs and it's possible that he did not father any of her children. Nearly all of their eighteen year marriage took place before Peter became emperor during that. He increasingly showed himself to be incapable of ruling. Then Empress Elizabeth who was. Peter's aunt died on December twenty fifth. Seventeen sixty one. That's in the old style calendar That would be January. Fifth Seventeen Sixty two under the new style and with that Peter finally ascended to the throne. He did not stay there long though less than six months later. He was overthrown in a coup. That Catherine had helped orchestrate and he was assassinated a few days after that Catherine took his place becoming Empress Catherine the second and she reigned for thirty four years that made her Russia's longest ruling female monarch following the enlightenment ideal of the enlightened despot Catherine plan to modernize and reform the government cultivate the sciences and the arts and improve the lives of Russia's poorest people. She wanted to update the criminal code. Overhaul the justice system. She established Russia's first school for girls appointed. Its first professor of Russian law and established a society to translate great works of Foreign Literature into Russian. Russia also expanded its industry trade and infrastructure under Catherine's rule but a lot of Catherine's attempts at reforms fell very far short during her reign. Russia was politically pretty stable but frequently at war she annexed most of Ukraine and took control of part of Poland after an uprising in seventeen ninety. Four that of course expanded the Russian empire but it didn't necessarily help people who had just been annexed and although she had plans to emancipate Russia's serfs the end of her reign serfdom was actually more widespread and in a lot of cases. People were living in worse conditions than they had before this is especially true in Ukraine where the peasant class lost a lot of the freedoms that it had previously enjoyed. It took almost two hundred years for Catherine and her rule to start to get an honest historical reckoning for decades people instead focused on her twelve documented lovers who were spread out over forty four years and on salacious rumors about her love life or they wrote her off as a conniving German from an insignificant family who schemed her way onto the Russian throne or they dismissed her as vain as frivolous woman. Who was more focused on the court theatrical pomp and splendour than on ruling even though she and Peter the Great had some similar ambitions his were praised as groundbreaking and innovative while hers were disparaged as derivative and ineffective. There were certainly people who tried to glorify Catherine's time as an empress but she also had a lot of very vocal detractors. Catherine was not only Russian. Empress whose legacy was treated this way. Women ruled Russia for most of the eighteenth century between seventeen. Twenty five and seventeen ninety. Six four empresses were on the throne with really very little interruption between them but that's stretch of empresses was book ended by a society that was far more patriarchal before the Eighteenth Century. Russia's royal and Aristocratic Women had been sequestered away from the public and specifically for men in almost monastic buildings palace wings called Tarom's and after Catherine's death Russia's law of succession was changed to keep women off of the throne including specifically getting the emperor's wife out of the line of succession between Catherine the great death and the Russian revolution the Russian monarchy and society as a whole really tried to downplay the contributions of all four of these eighteenth century. Empresses I mean it was like these women had been in charge for roughly seventy five years and people wanted to Kinda sidestep that whole idea and those downplayed contributions by these women included. They're fostering of the arts which is what brings us back to opera. Various members of the Russian aristocracy started theater troops. In the first half of the eighteenth century the monarchy started to be more formally involved under Empress Elizabeth who came to the throne in seventeen forty one in many ways. Elizabeth's reign paves the way for Catherine's both in terms of her rule and her focus on the arts in general. The imperial court was also very theatrical with state ceremonies and dinners and similar involving a whole lot of spectacle and with monarchs regularly hosting events like masquerades staged equestrian tournaments concerts recitations ballets and the ethical productions catherine the seconds interest in culture and the arts started long before she became empress and it extended well beyond her work in opera. Catherine just enjoyed writing. She was quoted as saying quote. I cannot see a blank sheet of paper without wanting to write on it and her written work included literary journals. Fairy Tales conduct manuals treatises on how to raise children and an ABC book. She also wrote a series of non opera. Dramatic works in the seventeen seventies and seventeen eighties. Some of Catherine's plays were written after the style of William Shakespeare who really was not all that well known in Russia yet. One such work who's tidal translated to how to have both the linen and the basket was based on the Mary wives of Windsor. I love that title. Catherine was also interested in incorporating western European influences into Russian culture. She brought composers from Italy and Spain to the Russian court and some of them compose music for her operas. She was particularly interested in French literature. Philosophy and art. She kept up a correspondence with voltaire that lasted from seventeen sixty three until his death. In seventeen seventy eight. She also bought Dini Close Library and she hired him as a librarian. She had a relationship. With Baron Friedrich Milk your grim who was originally from Germany but started a French cultural newsletter. And was a huge proponent of French Culture Catherine's affinity for French literature philosophy and culture was not universal though she was not as fond of Russo because she found some of his work to be anti Russian while she really really loved more Western European Culture and art. Catherine has also been described as more Russian than the Russians. She wanted the Russian arts to be Russian. Not simply to be imitations of foreign work. So while she was drawing from European influences she was also writing in Russian and working with Russian playwrights and composers she incorporated Russian idioms and colloquialisms into her work she also wrote specifically about Russia including grounding her plays and stories and operas in Russian history and folklore. Catherine's work as a librettist really drew on her love of Russia and her desire to create an authentic Russian style of opera and theater. And we're going to start getting deeper into that after. We have a little sponsor break. You've heard.

"That they probably should have. She had ideas in the beginning of developing a Russian constitution. And of doing things for the surfs, the peasants I mean the Russian peasants had the worst lives of anyone in Europe at that time, and they were there were millions of the Russian population was the greatest population in Europe Eurasia, and must these people lived in abject poverty, and she wanted to create some sort of system which demolished feudalism with still under the way that things are run in those days. And she just didn't make much progress. She was often cited as being. humorless, but she did have the ability to be self deprecating, and she could laugh at herself. There was a very good series that was produced. Way Helen Mirren. Plays Catherine. And there are a couple of scenes in there that we can say up more or less exactly according to what happened when she was mocked by essentially one of our a court jester, and she took it quite Welton she was able to to see you know the joy, and the benefit of being able to laugh at herself, which is probably quite rare at the time. You're on luckily for that, because if was in any luck Henry, eight or love is have lots their heads while I feel. Feel like she was the female. Henry the eighth in some ways. It's agree because her lover's, she would get bored with them like Henry, got with wives and fell in love and desperate and passionate, and then when they were no longer useful to she just she loved it, she she was ready searching for love and partnership and I think in Potemkin. She found it and I think you know. After two years with a with a sexual relationship stopped between them. He used to fund lovers for her. What she was looking for. That's right. There was incredible studs to sue the empress. Concord wherever he was. That's what you did, but what impressed me a lot was that she was single minded in what she wanted to do. So and very very positive person growing up in I think is what modern day Poland was pressure. On. Her father was. A Duke sort of a a lowly middle aristocracy nothing special. Her mother was hectic, and she hated a mother, and a Mother didn't really care about her, but manages saw manny. That was what she was interested in. So. She sits itself nicely up and she managed to get opportunity to marry. Pizza's good. But the big thing here was committed bank on Catherine being the way she was and win. Their went to Russia. Catherine braced it whereas Peter was a Russian pretend he wanted to be a German. Yeah, you actually. He wanted to be German, and she was German and wanted to be rush, actually she she learnt the language she learned to dance in Cultural Russian tradition she learned to take on the attributes of Russian aristocracy rather than German correct and Russian. Orthodox your edge and Jenna and her father. Who Was Protestant if I? If I understand it correctly? He was devastated when he was actually quite good man. I, don't know a huge amount about the parents, but I do remember. The mother was particular, hungry for money and Elizabeth hated them mother. Yes, such Elizabeth being below grade, still Zarina. Yes, and she locked Catherine in the beginning, but they started testing a little bit near the end and the interesting thing about Paul Catherine's son. Immediately when he was born, Elizabeth took him away. She didn't see him. As he was born. So that's tough is a good Johnson the emotional connection. If it happened on Paul Saad on her side, but that was sort of. You know again. People think things are were in in the pastas. They are now. And, what happened then women of royal or noble blood didn't really have a an intimate emotional relationship with their kids. I mean there one or two rare exceptions Louis the fourteenth who's coming up in an episode? But mostly the wasn't an emotional connection to this was just pure business at. Aces is going. On and if you're a woman, you were really a broodmare. You just make children. Yeah for your husband and if if he couldn't make children with you, it was your fault. I exactly. So she didn't have much of a relationship with Pole, and in fact, he just. Did, Nike, he had his own rival court happening at his palaces and the other thing. That's worth remarking on. The opulence of the Russian court. She was a great patron of the arts, but they everything was gilded man. If you've ever been to the Winter Palsson Petersburg, that place is just. Garish in terms of the amount of money that must have been spent. Remember the average. Russian was basically eating. Something rotten out of the rubbish. And this woman was living in the most splendor laureus luxury wanted to be part of Europe. Yes, exactly not part of Eurasia or yeah, well. Peter started that Peter. The great started that move to to kind of modernized because Russia was really backwater. Was this rural? Feudal very hard very cold, mean Russia's delays lachey well I, mean stolen linen was a big part in that as well, but that's also why they. The the Russians ause arenas who tried to European is Russia made the capital. Saint Petersburg rather than Moscow. And tried to draw it out of the harsh, Siberian steps and. into a kind of cultivated. Wintry, bet warm, European realized and sophisticated court, and that's also Crimea became so important. Because that was on the set was like a seaside resort. Yep nowadays I mean Putin's Gatti's way. That's incredible city down there. And she had dreams and ambitions. She was very interested in science and music in technology. I mean for what it was worth in those days technology. She also had a big bath house constructed. She liked the idea of like a sauna, an a bath which she had made, and it was one of the places she would entertain her lover's, but there is a lot of unfortunate propaganda. That's come up mostly because. Paul. Her son headed buried and changed history he went and rewrote. Things carved dot pots of the memory of her burnt lots of letters and papers of the she died, so as to hide some of the glory of she had because he disliked so really bad mother Senator Addiction I think it was definitely was, but in the end couldn't. She's revered if we look back at Peter the third. Somebody's head to do something for Russia. Because Lynch was in terrible danger, and I think probably in the in the nobility would ever thrown anyway, because it was a very weak lead, and the challenge with that was they were fighting a war against pressure and amenities mom pasta when he was impressed with saw, he stopped the war because he wanted to be Russian you wanted to be close to Frederick. And the were angry, so you had lot of angry. People said it was actually very easy to Catherine soon okay. And remove him, but there's a story that she didn't tell them to strangle him. And they went into hidden strangling eight days often, he abdicated, but I don't think it really makes a difference. In the end she had a stroke and she was. Wasn't the horse. Whole. Unfortunately would have been a hell of a story. But she did have a stroke and she died. Seventies I think she was what. Seventy. Something years old. In the year seventeen, ninety six, and a great rain, by all the cats managed to make Russia a much more powerful player on the world stage, if Netflix, and even though the dynasties that came after her squandered a lot of that they did build up tremendous wealth and incredible land I mean that very few empires in world history that can compare with the range of Russia that stage, stretching away from Mongolia and China's traded mess in in the Far East to Poland and Germany and the far west as far north as the Arctic as far South as India. Quite extraordinary, and she tried very hard in the beginning Europe was very much.
"catherine" Discussed on Blind History
"Aw. History is full of tales of the Kings. Who took what they wanted land? Women when money? There are only a few women who achieved the same. This is the story of a Russian CZARINA who took no instruction and made no policies. She took the crown and the Black Sea had many lovers. And absolute power. If anyone tells you that history is the story of men. You can be sure they haven't heard of Catherine the Great. Catherine the great of Russia. Real name was actually sophie of Anhalt zest empress of Russia from seventeen, sixty two until seventeen, ninety six, she was the country's longest ruling female leader and Russia didn't have a lot of those. She came to power funding A. which she organized resulting in her husband, Peter the third, being overthrown and killed, and her reign Russia was revitalized, grew larger and stronger, and was recognized as one of the great powers of Europe inner accession to power and the rule of Empire Catherine often relied on a couple of favorites, people like Gregory Orlov and Potemkin. And she was assisted by generals like Suvorov and some others who she relied on very heavy in order to bring about her conquest and diplomacy, and she's most famous conquering the Crimea for Russia which was quite a big deal, and up the trade between the north of Russia and the south, she had victories over the Ottoman Empire and the Russia Turkish wars. She reformed the administration of Russia's. Goodbye Niyaz which were the. Cities and towns that were founded on her orders, and she was always admire of Peter, the great and of Frederick the great of Prussia. And she considered them her big inspirations. She continued to modernize Russia. and made it a European country rather than a country. That kind of didn't fit in with the rest of what was going on in that period in Europe, she was also enlightenment scholar, so she would read a lot in fact during her very unhappy marriage to Peter. She's been most of time reading, but we'll get into the story of Catherine. The great I'm joined by my co host and the MD of Taylor blinds and shutters anthony metre. So what do you think of Catherine the Great? I was impressed with her. She was in lots, and as you say, she followed the philosophers of the day. But as you started realizing how she has to rule the country, she actually lift Russia, and the CIFS cool them. In match WIS position in prior to Ryan while it's worth remarking that first of all. They went a lot of women in charge in her time. They went a lot of women in charge in history, which is why less episodes on them than on the men. And she was, if anything, quite a masculine caroline woman. She was strong. She was determined. She didn't take no for an answer. She treated her. Male lovers like men treat female lovers. She was all about conquest. She consolidated power on his self wasn't even afraid to take out her own husband, because she was afraid that he would be a week leader and she saw him as a problem in obstacle will, but I think even a weak person would wanNA take p to the third out. What do you? What do we know about him? So Peter the third yet the right to the throne. If we think back to Peter, the great daughter Elizabeth was natural succession and she was I. Think they're called Serene. Arena Serena, and then obviously he was going to be the next in line, but she's already. That he was very timid, he was touched. He was really strange I, mean he? He's thin. He was a strange looking. Little. Manny looks like in advance marks the scream that famous Peres exactly kind of looks like because it drawn and and strange, and then he played with his toy soldiers, even when he went in his twenties, and he's to hurt animals. It was just a really just. A terrible. You being such. And Elizabeth supports a lot of Catherine because she was such a strong woman So you know, I'm not sure what Elizabeth with the thought. If you lost it will, she lived longer, but it's. It's amazing. At these two women kind of guided the direction of Russia that time, but she she did marry. This peter had very unhappy time being married I think it was eighteen years. Earth y'all. During that time she was observing quietly trying to be dutiful, but she saw the role of Zarina as being like decorative, and she wasn't interested in being decorative. She brought some that German ambition thrown. And they did have children together. Although there are rumors that maybe those children were not the children of I mean there's a lot that was made up about Katharine Post. Fact because her and son didn't like very much, she kept him at a distance. She never really allowed him power during her reign, and he was always a little bit resentful of that, and obviously the fact that his father had been taken up by his mother. So. There's a lot that's made up. We can't really disown whether it was gossip or whether it was stuff that was potentially true, and in every bit of gossip. There's usually an element of truth. Otherwise, it doesn't survive, I. Mean the most famous thing to people who casual observers of Catherine is that? This woman had a voracious sexual appetite, and that she took many male lovers now whether or not, that's true, but there winters foster said he was furniture that helped to the dodd making leftover horse. said it was really. Whatever it was, she had a serious sexual. But another thing is in the end what? Is locked in terms of the truth was she had a lot of levers that she was monogamous. Chewing that stage says she had one lover. She didn't have fifteen or ten or show, but she did tie of them quite quickly and then should move onto somebody else. But. She treats incredibly well, so when she tired of them, they ended up with Palacios. Trees, she put one of her legs into Pearl, and he was quite a week man, so she could control it. But besides Potemkin. The rest of them really just came and went. Yeah I. Mean Potemkin eventually died? I think at fifty two, but he led a number of very successful campaigns for her, and conquered the Crimea for he would do anything for him. And he was just hit a heels veggie. He was flamboyant. He was very charismatic, and Catherine was more STOIC. She was organized and the German part of her, and that's what made them such a good team. And that's what created the court. You know the that was compared. The Sun. Kings court beside and that was her ideal, and he helped her. You know from cultural sought from the arts, one of those things that made very successful and people talk about he did that, and then he used to dream, so you dreamed about? About joining the Black Sea and getting to the Mediterranean. Rush earned right. It wasn't Putin. Putin got these deals now, but I mean that kind of longtime from potemkin becomes from him. Yeah, she had to walk a very tight line the because they will often, plus by sometimes had jilted male lovers, and sometimes the powerful people in court to displace her and being a woman. You never really secure, because men didn't actually respect to the level.

"catherine" Discussed on Detour To Neverland

It's going to be a weekly curated email where where we share tips tricks and different strategies to help you grow your project. You can sign up by visiting detoured Neverland Dot Com forward slash newsletter and we are excited to announce that our first I release date is going to be next Wednesday July twenty fourth so we're excited yeah so just expand on that a little bit it's going to be both you know articles and blog posts that we find from around on the web and then also Catherine has been working on a blog series as as well. I read the first installment it was wonderful well. Thanks you have to say that but it's it's a labor of love and it definitely goes with what we're talking about today but just stepping out of our comfort zone so we'll get to that here in a minute but the other thing that we did want to mention is that our friends Sarah Jeff who we've been spending the whole week with here in Disneyworld <hes> they just kind of stepped out of their comfort zone as well so they both run the adults in Disney blog and they have their own instagram and Jeff is obviously very much into photography and he's quite good even rendon gives him a hard time and they just recently opened up their own Ed see store to sell those prints so we're super proud of them and and of course we want to support their endeavors and we want to encourage you to go check him out <hes> because they're awesome yeah so you can find them on Oetzi at Disney park prints and then we will also put the link to their shop in our show notes yeah so so they're quite affordable as well drescher. Oh Yeah it's definitely the quality is top notch yep so we have two of them now we do. We're so excited so today. Our focus is on stepping out of Your Comfort Comfort Zone don't and this is something that I think everyone can relate to whether or not you actually have some sort of Disney business or side hustle you know even in your everyday life in your day job your nine to five you know it's scary to still have to step out of your comfort zone if you're asked to do a presentation or head up a new project or whatever it might be. That's scary so I think this is something that everyone can relate to yeah and I think really just comes down to fear and overcoming fear <hes> and just you know understanding that there could be failures in rejections but understanding that it's going to make you stronger and it's going to lead you down new pass that you don't even know exist. Oh for sure and I think another part of that. You know there's obviously the fear part of it but there's also. So the comparison and you know I can speak like Brennan said you know I'm starting this blog. You know I can compare myself to all the other amazing Disney bloggers that we've had the privilege of talking to and getting to know and you know I can look at myself and say we'll my writing is not nearly as good as theirs because they're rock stars and I think sometimes that comparison can also kind of keep you in your safe. Happy Bubble Yup a phrase that I've been living by trying to buy for a long time as comparison is the thief of joy and I think that is so true the keeping up with the Joneses mindset is real always looking over your shoulder and seeing what other people are doing in letting that get into your own head but putting those blinders on and just worrying about you and being the best version of you that you can be I think is absolutely the key to success yeah yeah and just trying not to think put too much pressure on yourself has been a big thing for me lately and just knowing that everyone has to start somewhere. It's like we say to people every single week. You just have to go for it and it's so hard to take your own advice. It's the hardest thing in the world because you can preach it all day long and I think something to keep in mind is that fill in the blank with anybody that you idolize like in a space that you would want to to go into but you're leading compares interfere stop you. I can almost guarantee you. That person does not feel one hundred percent comfortable with what they're doing. That's true probably always room for growth you know and everybody's minds because we've been podcasting for what one hundred and thirteen episodes now I don't. I doubt it but there might be someone out there. Who thinks I couldn't do what they're doing and I can tell you we have have fear all the time that we we still don't know what we're doing and I think so many other people no matter how polished or well presented you seem have that kind of mindset unfortunately yeah? It's definitely always something to kind of overcome <hes> so the first thing that we really want to talk about or just what we think are some of those benefits to actually stepping out of your comfort zone so when you Kinda give yourself that pep talk you know what are the real benefits benefits for yourself just personal benefits Brendan for me I think when you step out of your comfort zone you learn more about yourself probably than any other exercise that you can possibly do when you're not within the confines finds of your safe little bubble that you've created for yourself. You're really learn what your strengths are. What your weaknesses are things that you like things that you don't like because you're not in this? You know environment that you've built up just to <hes> be you know accompany what you like and don't like there's a better way of saying that and I can't get there at the moment but you know what I mean like once you step out of those walls roles of your little happy space. That's where you really learn what you're made of. Oh yeah it's kind of like that flight or fight kind of mentality. I mean if you never push yourself. You'll never know what you're actually capable. Bible of and I guess my benefit is kind of the same thing I definitely see it as an opportunity for growth within yourself I mean it's I feel like a pair. I'm very much saying what you just said but you know if you just constantly do the same thing then you're going to life. Just pass you by. I mean it's so easy to just do your routine. You know the everyday nine to five you come home. E WATCH TV go to sleep. I mean you could do that forever but then you're in a Rut and you really don't give yourself that opportunity to become a better version of yourself and I think that's a shame I mean as a teacher that something that you always try instill in your kids. You know that you want to be the best version of yourself and you have to push yourself in even though it kind of sucks you know that's how you get better and I think a lot of times when you grow up and you graduate college or like I'm done you know I I've been there done that I did school. I have the degree and oftentimes you kind of go through you know okay. You know what next I'm dying and you're not done. You have a whole lifetime to keep growing yeah. I think something that you mentioned that. I want to make sure that our listeners really here because I do think it's important. Is that a lot of times pushing yourself outside of your comfort. Zone opens up new doors for opportunities -tunities that you have no idea even there. I mean like for us for example. The PODCAST has opened up doors to so many different things of what we can do now which I never would have imagined and yeah I never would've actually thought that I would blog like for fun and enjoyment and here we are and I think it's allowed us to network within the Disney community. us to express ourselves and brand new ways but there's also new business opportunities that hopefully will be able to explore down the road that just because we have something that has a little bit of traction. It's opened up these doors yeah and I think the possibilities are just endless whence he start opening new doors. I think there's a Disney quote that goes with that and I we've used it before so we're not gonNA use it today but I think in addition to you benefitting yourself 'cause obviously those possibilities are endless. I think you can also benefit others which is an interesting way of looking at it and we've talked about it a few times on the podcast. I'm interested if this is the way that you're interpreting this to be like I've said before if you don't put yourself out there and do what you're capable of doing and sharing it with the world. You're doing everybody else a disservice because there might be one person who needs needs your next blog poster your instagram post or your podcast or youtube you know show to come out and to consume that to get them over the hump for them to accomplish something great yeah I mean I definitely agree and I think it it kind of you could even take what you're saying in connected to different stores who benefit you know different causes like we've talked about if they never had that store never created that product you know they might not be able to share. Her their testimony in the things that they want to share with the world or just their own story because really those are the things that connect us to other people in relate to other people you know tugging on those heartstrings strings and sharing that common ground they help make friends and we've seen that many times within the community and we've experienced that with other people and then you know it. Might you know your story might my give someone else the confidence to step out of their comfort zone you know if you are in artist who is using the Disney community as an outlet for you know your creativity someone else could connect to that if they're lucky enough to have artistic ability and it could be silly things like I think about and I don't remember where we exactly connected but one of the things that like we talked with Andrea from isn't a neat boutique about a lot is hot chicken can like just silly things like that that we posted a picture that we were at Howdy B.'s now like we love how to be when we come to Nashville just little things like that that you never know just by putting yourself out there and sharing your story and experiences news on who you're going to connect with and how that can unravel yeah and that that makes me think of when we were in <hes> our group with our friend Terry. We're getting to talk to a lot of similarly minded people and we heard you know you can always find common ground with someone. There's there's always something that you can talk about and connect with someone else which is obviously something that we struggle with being a little more introverted averted but it's so true like bought chicken follows fails go to Disney exactly well awesome so hopefully this is helpful for you guys. We're GONNA take a quick break in here a message from our partners and then we'll be back with the second half of the episode as our October trip to Walt Disneyworld gets closer weary leave to already have something important checked off our list instead of lugging our niece's Stroller from our our house to the car to the airport onto the magical express in eventually to the room we simply reserved our stroller with kingdom strollers and it will be waiting for us at Bell Services at the Polynesian as soon as we arrive nothing nothing could be easier and less of a hassle and we are so relieved to have that option so to reserve your stroller and check one more item off of your list had to detour in every land dot com forward slash kingdom or or look for that link in our show notes so we're back and perfect.
