Tuesday-How The Mike Church Show Got The CoronaHoax Story Correct Months Before Anyone Else!

"This is from lockdown TV. You're going to hear a professor Karl Frisked. Him who is a world class mathematician? Her Frist, and is going to talk about. Susceptibility. And he's also going to wonder out loud. Why in Haiti's didn't anyone else talk about susceptibility? We did now what does that? What does that mean? Susceptibility means. that. Basically. You the calculation that was used to predict Armageddon and the end of the world as we know it from Covid, nineteen and from corona hoax. They calculation that was used. was based upon. Every human being was susceptible. Is everyone understand that. Every person alive was susceptible. That means that anyone at any given point in time could get. The coronal bug. And die from. So we were all at the exact same risk. That's the only way they could sell this well. Was that true? No it. Wasn't. So. Two clips professor Karl Christon is going to explain that now that we have data up to eighty percent. Of. You end I were never susceptible. We had built in antibody herd immunity of some sort. This is before. The pandemic. So. Digital Media Foul Number One. Professor Karl Frison I heard this last night I'm like where has this been all my life? You'll you'll, you'll understand we being tasked not to? Play down the. Significance of those factors the very presence of so many other factors. should at least to them into some proportion. I, wonder whether we can go so far as to say that the kind of most simplistic, I'm inevitable progressive disease that the original imperial models soul costs where essentially everyone was equally vulnerable, the disease would inevitably progress to eighty percent, and all of those a fixed, the number would die as many as one percent has been proven not to be true. It can we say that from the muddling? Thinking carefully about my answer, because the way that you. Described as predictions, actually does make perfect sense and has been borne out by the data under the qualification, and his his came back to the rob now under the qualification that the population they were talking about is much smaller than you might imagine so in fact, what you just said is exactly what our? Calls a modeling came up where they wanted to the data. then. Yes, you know you start off stipulated. Redefining varies a susceptible population and. Operationally that population will ultimately be exposed to the buyers, and will ultimately I'm quite some form of immunity. And under that definition, then then I think the original modeling was absolutely as undeniably true in relation to the assumptions of the modeling, and is perfectly fitted acts as an explanation for what has happened, but notice what we've done. We're talking about a subset of the population that is susceptible, so that immediately implies well there must be a non -ceptable population and we'd come back to the dark matter so. Digital Media Okay. If. There's a portion of the population and it is susceptible. Then there is a portion of the population that is. Susceptible or not susceptible? That's what he just said. How do they get that data? They analyze the actual data and took the demographic the census numbers, and then apply it, and said wait wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. And then. At another partners video, it's thirty minutes long. I can't play the whole thing. Another point video the Freddie, the guy from unheard a UNHCR. De says well. How is this possible and professor? Princeton says Karl Christon said well. It's possible because depending on where you where you live now. This just folks. I. I am a Boolean over this. There's so much good coming out of this. I in professor I is a mathematician. Be Clear on that. He's not an epidemiology. Even says the video you have to ask epidemiologist that question I am a mathematician. Statistician usually. But he says. You. Know How we have this conversation about getting back to the basics. And about the food that we eat that. It's poison without a GMO crap. They throw in it. What have you and that? You want food? That is uh, is especially? Vegetables or what have you? They're grown locally. Why because the bees pollinating it? In his great circle of life kind of thing. Are, delivering antibodies to us. There helping us in this environment in this locale and the this area there helping us and other living mammal another living another life there helping us. To avoid. The credit. Creatures and critters that bear or that. Come in the form of disease and parasites, and what have you so to help you build up an immunity to this just by just my naturally consuming things. Any says in another part of the video when you know some people where they live, it's. W-, we believe that one of the factors that contribute to this is the kind of spice. But they use in their food. Bet Herbs and spices also contribute to immunity so one more clip from and. This is all about herd immunity. Now again you were lied to. You were deceived the Crusader channel in a Mike. Church show told you you were being lied to told you you were being deceived. Presented, the Info, and the data to you know many of you accepted it. Many more of your went well, my fringe neighbor will never accept it and our governors had. My We were right now. I'm not telling you this like a toot. My Horn I'm dude dude. I'm telling you this so that. When the next phase of this comes along, and we sniff out through due diligence and good, old, fashioned reporting and journalistic integrity, and just going through the paces to try to get to the truth of the. Matter you can trust us. And you can refer your friends and neighbors family members to us to the crusade channel, and what we say here on these shows all right. Clinton number two lockdown TV professor, Karl I and herd, immunity and social distancing. Social distancing doesn't work. Her immunity does listen. If if the central cabin nation on his two point, four nine million ounces, nine point five made. This is to twenty five percent than fifty percent fell spotted. Yeah, yeah, it does seem as the you know. The susceptible population is much smaller than new dimension. You Get I. Not really here to make predictions also give you investments the reason I am here because I asked this question of the movies, are you using techniques would allow you to test different hypotheses. I suspect if you you know if if you want to number I, I think you're absolutely right the what it will look like. Wants this has been done it will look like. In fact, the the the non defective non-central portion of population would have been by eighty percent I, think he. I think that's what's going to happen but I. You know I'm I have no foundational trailing and epidemiologists. Or I can do is is. Read the data. or at all or even less than that Put methodologies. Infants methodologies as immoral comparison on the table for people who? Whose job riches to explore used policies. The First Committee meeting of your independent sage at your member of 'em gene into and a phrase you used. This is back in the beginning of May. That stuck with me. What you said you felt it was more than the COVID. Explosion in places like London and as was more tend to a file. Zan grumbling. And as it quite quickly, work through all the debatable combustible material. Could you elaborate on that and you still believe that I've seen the recipe slow decline in the daily desperate. I. Because you know inherits, I think from the basic epidemiology that Bait into these. S. I. R. S. E. R. Like models than if you've got a central population, it's GonNa. Burn through operationally. You look at the differential equations. It can be no other way. Let's start with one person has an infection you end up with everybody's had there is the model does not comment any other outcome, so the has to be explosion that sort of sort of burning through the susceptible population that is the nature of the model so now the conception as well. How do you explain? Epidemic or a pandemic in a country where there could be the whole salaries, a whole constellation of these central populations so with any susceptible population, any little, neither of infection and indolent class journal outbreak. Yeah, I think the the physical. Their were model is almost a truism. August aren't almost truce now. Case! You didn't get that. Seventy five twenty, five, maybe eighty twenty. On susceptible to susceptible population. What does that mean you get exposed to? An eighty percent of people are going to laugh at walkaway. Kelvin. Whatever. We have on his life cure and stuff we all. It is like you know immunity. Eighty percent up to eighty percent populations exposed. Couldn't have gotten. That is shocking. You shut the economy down. You made me stay in my house. You took my business away from me, and only twenty percent of the population was even susceptible to it. Wow.

Staying Connected: How to Use Teamwork as a Couple

"The. Welcome to the family bootes podcast where we believe even closer relationships are closer than we think. This. Fourteen series is Paula staying connected because we realize that being close in proximity doesn't mean you're connecting as a couple. And and so we've been looking at some of the common subtle ways that we drifted become disconnected, and we know these are common because the Bible outlines many. Atoms relationship. I was an emotional or spiritual isolation that we call living single. The second one that could cause the drift is blank which we learned. A self-imposed trap replaced responsibility for our circumstances, bad feelings, attitudes and stress on another personal object. And as a result, we become victim. And we learned last week. That will be lack a common direction shared purpose that will have a different Oguz for individual lives graded. In our marriage. But let's be honest. A lot of the battlegrounds in a moment by moment day by day, life, or even week to week, many of those battlegrounds half to do with our daily responsibilities around the house. And who does what around the house is a common battle round among Mary people, or is all often framed as who does more? Now Chris and I have a lot in common for example but. Yes. Speaking in public is not one of those days all right, so la, but one of the things we have in common is. We hate doing laundry anybody. Are I okay? If anybody doesn't raise their hands, we had like six loads will bring your house's afternoon. Okay, all I so we hate doing larger. The only thing that we hate more is holding laundry anybody. Yes but the bad thing about this. We love wearing plain clothes so a huge dilemma of what to do. Now when Kristen and I allow ourselves to fall into the trap of who does more when we allow ourselves to have those conversations stations. Will we typically do? We were signing a very high value to the responsibilities around the house that we embrace and do. And we put a very low baillieu. On what our spouse. We kind of equate grading system this way to I hate this chore, So Must Be Worth a lot more than you do. In Wyoming, great ourselves either on the size of the task or the number of chores, the the degree in which we just dislike that particular chore. What we're saying is that I'm always GONNA win. When we grade ourselves in marriage I've never given myself a low score. And I'll think. Kristin has eater. In other words the things that we. Hey, because we feel those things so much, we get ourselves such a high score that are spousal. Always lose when we're fourteen. At here's the deal. scorekeeping leaves US Open. For the I always in you never conversations, or the I do more conversations and that conversation creates. Blind spots in relationship. Eventually back. Conversation moves us from you. do or you don't do it because you are. In we Sha- in shapes the way we see our spouses character in that we start judging their intentions, which is very very dangerous. So teamwork is essential in these tasks that let's face it. Not many people like to do, but they have to be done. And that teamwork is essential because we have to be on the same page for us to be on the same team that is true up. Sports teams work teams and a spouse in mirrors teams. So, how do we start or restart for a bad habit and we're feeling it right now. Because the first four weeks prince new mostly, it was the kids adjusting last two weeks or ten days especially has been very very stressful. And, so we usually choose these battle rounds to express our frustration. So. How do we start or restart? The first thing he had to ask yourself is what is a real issue, even if you're battleground isn't the chores around the house. Is the real issue. And what you do around the house is rarely the issue now your job to unpack. What am I really trying to communicate? And in my experience, with couples of honest with myself is typically things like I'm tired. I'm having a bad day. I'm stressed Amman. And lowly I feel like a failure I feel like I. Don't measure up or I'm just unfulfilled. That is typically the feelings behind the messaging. The couples. Will have better outcomes if they allow themselves to unpack rarely do that. And, so they don't do this because number one, it takes time. It takes time to slow down safely. What am I really feeling? Instead of two. It takes vulnerability. You actually have to say it out loud. And most people are comparable speaking from their heart, even in their marriages is, it makes them feel we were exposed or even civil, or they're afraid that they when they do, they will be embraced that same kind of. Vulnerability will not be reciprocated. So instead of sharing, what's really going on? We have a tendency to show our feelings rather than share. Showing our feelings is always confusing. I guarantee you when we do this. Your spouse will not understand what you're trying to communicate use. Your emotions are cloudy. You're worse. So. You won't eat him because you haven't taken the time to answer the first question. What's really going on? So teamwork is all about being on the same page. So get on the same page. You have to know what's really going on, so that's my first. As if your spouse is unicating in a way that you're not understanding or if you find yourself, get caught in emotional whirlwind. Take a time out in. Kindly, ask yourself your wife or your husband. What's really going on? So that's the first step. The second tip is family I. In Christmas GonNa read to Bible Scriptures that give us these principles and very clear way you'll have. GRACE GIVENS NASS say. You're not thinking of yourself more highly than you. Arrive think of yourself with summer. Summer judgment. Ordinance debate on his distributed to each of you. Do not have selfish ambition. Her Bank can rather in humility. Others yourselves not only not looking to your own interests than each of you to interest in. It reports before and again if your a battleground is not chores of daily responsibilities, this principle still applies to whatever it is that you guys struggle with. So as you can imagine a lot of therapist, friends in one of my friends is a marriage counselor. She has an amazing approach to couples therapy. She starts every new counseling relationship with this statement. Your marriage is my clients. As pretty profound I thought were marriage. Is Mike why I need you to put your marriage, not yourself I, we are working on the health of your marriage. Now she tells me when couples are able to do this and much better outcomes than therapy than those who don't. The same holds true in the way we structure and operate our household. We need a utilize biblical principles that person just read, and they consider our marriage. Dig Your spouse before yourself. Which makes the Monday task, chores and daily responsibilities more meaningful invaluable because we're doing it for something bigger than ourselves. Laundry is a bigger deal than lauder. Because it helps US operate, it gives us more free time. We put away the things that we disliked so we can invest in the things that make the most difference. In the same holding true. In other areas. Because you have to understand that we do these things, you're actually adding value to your family. Now. I WANNA. Bring on crystal for a while and I appreciate Y'all sending me messages of how you appreciate especially our returning Mary Crash Get to class because of kids stuff. Things you know my wife. First of all. She's very laid back. She loves me behind the scene, but she's also greatly I can give you example on example of all example. I love for wisdom. One thing that people sometimes don't know because she's a little bit more reserved as Christon is brilliant now I'm not saying that is a act and I have proof. she finished a four year degree in two years with a three point nine GPA. She's brilliant. She has started a masters degree and finish it in a year where they upon out. She is brilliant. Now when we got married. We knew that we wanted a big family. And Kristen Kinda came up to the idea after baby number one that she were specially when it would be home during the early years and we did the math, it was more affordable for her to stay home with our big family in to try to hire people to do daycare offer services, cleaning services and all that hoste. And, we did the math and the tasks that she took on a daily basis, even though she is brilliant, even though she could get a job in the marketplace and her value to be a sign with a salary. Even though her talents were fargeon changing diapers. she decided to do that. Because, she added value. Not only to the relationships with our kids, but actually to our bank account. And her value was not just that she brought her genius to her work at home. She used her ministry mind plan. I wore. Ties execute strategize that allow us to use God's resources to stretch dollar further than I. Ever thought it could go. She can squeeze a penny in three more. Come Out, I mean she is gifted that way. On top of that, she created the opportunity in gave me the gift, so I can be a better husband. And so we can invest in our relationship. Nagy be a better father especially when our kids were young, and she actually afford media opportunity early in our marriage to actually develop friendships which I would not have given myself the freedom to do. She. She'll. Even though she's brilliant and she has skills outside the home. She afford us to beat the family that she wanted to be because she put our family first. And secondly national works outside the home and she now multitask because she's brilliant. She's helping our family. Meet the demands that we're facing right now. Regardless of your role, regardless of what you stink, you bring to your house or guardless if you can find value in the Monday meaningless things of daily life. You're actually adding bow. You're either creating space to be the family you WANNA be. Or you're actually saving money that he can reinvest in your family and into others. Family I approach is so essential when you think about the teen your marriage because you bring down into whatever you do because God has given you out. Your Task Your Role Your Responsibility, your job is not a thing that says that you were valuable. Your paycheck, your parking space, or even your promotions. That is not what's God says? Valuable He created you in his image. He's giving you. The identity of a son and daughter Jesus Christ and because of that data assigns you the. Not The things that we do. And here's the deal. Jesus model that acronym on Point Number Two ambling. Forget about me I love you. Forget about me I. Love You Jesus Model that he came to Earth. He model that say you know what I am God I'm GonNa come, and more in the form of a working class do I'm going to set aside all my rights and privileges because I care about you and I want you to be in relationship with God the father. He modeled as his value was much ranger and he may appear to Hap- While on earth. But he didn't care busy wasn't thinking of himself. Nasty essential part of having a team. Now you're lightning, though too, and this is where we're going to close as you break off in your breakout groups in a second here. Is that how do we know her on the right travel? And you get these. Of Joy along the way. When you're trying to connect with your spouse or serve your family in a way that he no matters, even if it's not recognized and you do it and you can see. How can ask you see that you've done a good job? You can take joy in that you will have. Enjoy is not happiness because happiness is based on circumstances in situations. Julie's a deep satisfaction. Regardless of what's going on, you should know you're adding Bowden. So that's what we're talking about today now. Some of you may not have the issue of household responsibilities. It might be something else. The principles still apply. What is really going on? When you're trying to unpack all those. Unidentified motions family I forget about me I. Love You. In if we can start living that analyzes developing that teamwork in our marriage. You will experience a crisis center joy.

Ep 46 Reducing Burnout and Compassion Fatigue

"The episode of talking to change a motivational interviewing podcast. My name is. Glenn hines and base in derry. Northern ireland always. I'm joined by my good friend. Sebastian kaplan and winston salem north carolina glenn coulda cf and you and hello everybody today. We're going to be exploring the really important issue of bernard and compassion fatigue but before we get in that maybe he could remind people about how they can contact us on. Twitter are handles at change talking on facebook. You can reach us at talking to change in an instagram. You can reach us at talking to change podcast and any email correspondence for us. Any ideas for new episodes any questions that you might have. You can contact us at podcast. At glen hines dot com and just refer note about our audience ships very excited recently to discover that we had crossed the two hundred thousand download threshold so that was wonderful. And based on our database. We've been downloaded or accessed in one hundred forty two countries around the world so really excited that this become a worldwide project. This exciting so again. Thank you for everybody. Who's been part of that journey with us and today's journey exploring as we say the bernard and capacity fatigue and haven't spoken with kristen and alley. Well the standard points for you. Then were thrilled to have christianity. Join us both friends and colleagues within the network trainers and i think as our podcast often unfolds in this way that the topic that we can go outside the bounds of am i to discuss her topic. And that's certainly what we did. We addressed even just clarifying all the different terms that are used to describe and to capture the experiences of burn out or capacity and then some others in we got a bit into 'em i itself and some the for instance the elements of the spirit. And how those might contribute to a reduction in burn out amongst practitioners and we even got into some bigger picture organizational ideas how managers and leadership can use 'em i specifically but even just some of the main spirit elements to help with workplace culture and that sort of thing so those are the things that really sit outs me What about you. Yeah alongside of just opportunity spend. That was too hard sanford people. Helping helpers. stay whale while helping was really what struck me. There was just. Hey considered and caned thoughtful ways kristen dempsey an alcohol are and how well they worked together and this search i'd say that willingness to explore not just the needs of the individual to take into account the needs of organizations particularly given the sixteen months of the honda. Mike and hydro respond to that. So we really hope you enjoy the episode. We normally start the episode worth a conversation exploring the practitioners journey into motivation. And that would be okay. I start today just a bit about yourself and your journey into motivation and kristen and my journey i think i i started to do motivational independent over twenty years ago and i was working in a program that was a family therapy organization but we had specialization. Working with individuals as substance use challenges of all sorts and many people were mandated to our agency and all along the developmental life span fantastic training. Only one thing was missing. Which was really how to engage people because so many people came in who didn't necessarily really want to be there so that's when it happened to come across as motivational interviewing thing and it was immediately love at first drive like this is exactly what i need. And there's an article and referred to later but anyway he about this idea of being a substance abuse counselor and finding motivational interviewing and realizing. This is what i need. So it was important for preventing my and allow me to work in this field for over twenty five years and i was fortunate enough to be involved in motivational interviewing network of trainers starting in two thousand. And eight for me really. Maybe it's that. I just do everything the hard way. But i was immersed in a treatment center that really specialized in a confrontational approach. Made it quite an art in fact and prides itself on its great success rates with the most difficult to serve people. We had ten percent successful. Wasn't that great with these really difficult. People not worried at all about the ninety percent that we were driving away and how to be more effective with them so being introduced to 'em i was a little bit like stumbling across full canteen in the middle of the desert. And just everything made sense after that. So the contrast couldn't have been more clear ways to engage people successfully in helping them move towards their cherished goals drills rather than imposing or installing approach. So never looked back. I didn't so both of you came to it. It sounds like in slightly different ways. Kristen may be for you as you had a lot of the critical components of an agency and perhaps some good methodology and there was the missing piece last element which really sparked your interest. Certainly in it's provided us something that you were looking for without maybe even know you're looking for it and alliott. Sounds like you. Use the desert image to describe how things were for your agency for your clients at really a desperate need to find something to meet. The needs of so many that agency were missing. That's really true. I can speak to the fact that leo's trained in family systems work and also in this program. The agency worked in was doing a lot of very early work around understanding neurobiology of addiction. For instance in that work was just so important and was so critical to answer so many questions. I think that certainly many people in our community were looking for many families so greatly needed and this engagement link with 'em i it is so profound. It was so important we know what to do when people are on board but man how do we get them there especially when we have a large family and this idea that identify patients and all the challenges that come with someone struggling with various addictions right. There's different ways to engage and m. eichel explorer where to get started so it was such an important missing for me critical link yet at the same time the way i came to it in for the organization as an implementation concern it became really a transformation from the inside out. Which many right ways to do this stuff. And that ended up being a really profound transformation for an agency to undertake required precisely deep soul-searching significant process that you're describing the idea that that internal change and i guess the debt in many ways we've explored northern episodes. The work at the individual practitioner does or experiences as they learn and develop practice motivations. But what you're describing. This is not just an individual practitioners the whole organization going through a transition and just looking at the expense of been curious about. Why are we being successful with ten ten percent. An e quickest way we mess note on ninety percent. I guess a lot of the listeners will recognize that there's variations of those numbers. But there's lots of times where people could do with our help. Choose not to engage with us. It's almost like you're describing a christian. That what motivates offered was. It's almost like an on boarding hideaway. Connect with this individual to begin to offer them the other aspects of what it is we offer whether it be founded systemic therapy or cognitive behavioral. Therapy that it's working in conjunction so i guess maybe that's the theme of what we're exploring too far just actually working together. Working together with our approach is working together with each other and working together with our clients so really quit chest. And we're looking forward to explore that what is a bit more detail but one of the things we're also curious about is. How did you two get together. Hooded you come to this place where usually working together. We had a talk about this. Because we've been working together for a while winter. We actually get to know each other. And i think we started to connect probably out of motivational interviewing trainers for about ten years ago. And i've really benefited from ali's incredible ability to reach out and collaborate and get things started so Has this wonderful characteristic of really bringing people in and it's a great example of how she uses her leadership which i'm so grateful for and many are and more recently in the last five years ago the to work with bringing some fidelity tools for working with motivational interviewing some you might know the motivation interviewing treatment integrity tool and the motivational interviewing clinical assessment tool which helps develop and we brought it to some places in northern california to help train providers in those tools which was absolutely terrific. Really upped our game in terms of training in california and then more recently in the last year. We've been doing some collaboration around doing some motivational interviewing and dialectical. Behavior therapy integration. This will webcast like this in providing free to the community so those are just a couple of things probably a couple more elliott might have missed some well known and i was deeply grateful to meet kristen and actively brainstorm any opportunity to reach out to her and find ways to work together. Excellent collaborator creative insightful. Just the heart set in line mindset that she brings to our collaborations. I routinely make excuses to pitch more ideas to her so they can continue working well like with many of the friendships that we share meeting at a motivational interviewing forum is certainly something that we can all relate to. It's basically our version of a conference and it is really stimulating events both intellectually but many lifelong friendships are born in that setting. So it sounds like that. Certainly the case for the to view and it's a collaboration. That's certainly centered around. Am i but you expanded that to some of the other clinical specialty areas like delectable baber therapy that you mentioned kristen maybe you can start to tell us a bit about your interest in burnout and compassion fatigue and the work or the at least the thinking that you all have been doing around this topic sebastian and get started by first of all tell you little bit about my immediate interest in this so that of course brings in the last fifteen months that we've been going through all of us and as we talk about the pandemic in particular you'll hear people saying things like problems challenges inequities concerns that have been our communities and our cultures along or really started to surface really started to surface in some of this environment and i think what we became interested in is some of the culture and structural issues that many behavioral health providers have been working in that have already created fatigue. Stress really got kicked into high gear in this last year where everyone all of a sudden really needs our support. I know for the first lady month. Six weeks of the pandemic and march things real quiet both in my private practice in my training and then things just exploded just with all kinds of needs and much of the training i did. Last year was for agencies wanting me to talk with their staff not just about motivational interviewing but also just about working online and just dealing with their incredible amounts of stress that the folks were dealing with and so i also noticed that twenty twenty was one thing people were getting through the year. They're are challenged in california had another layer of stress because our fire season started early so in the middle of absolute climate crisis in california as you might know so that's another level of stress among providers because they're often doing emergency response so i found twenty twenty. People were very stressed of course but pulling through and for me personally that when we turn the corner to twenty twenty one. That's when a lot of folks really started to get really bra terms of clients as well as clinicians. It's harder to the long-term and why this is gonna end and what's the plan here so the compassion fatigue the bernau these things. They're starting to bubble up more and so we'll just see this and then commute to ellie speak with her thoughts about this but just to define some terms. We know this become very confusing right. Secondary traumatic stress and compassion fatigue burn. What are we talking about here. And so we're thinking of the secondary traumatic stress. Compassion fatigue sometimes called the courage trauma physician. It's tailored a state of exhaustion or dysfunction. It can biologically physiologically socially spiritually that happens as a result of a lot of exposure to compassion stress to hearing people's stories and that certainly unoccupied channel hazard for folks working with the different from brunell general. Which is really more about. Anybody can burn out in it. Certainly crosses occupation can be whenever we feel unsatisfied. Powerless overwhelmed at work and certainly compassion. Fatigue can lead to burn out. So that's a concern. We have and one last thing. I'll say that just added talker to this year. Was this idea of shared trauma that it's not just working with folks community who were really stressed. We had that stress. Too worried about our families worried about our safety or dealing with in this case fires and smoke as well so it becomes another layer of difficulty for providers. Thanks for clarifying. those terms. christon an excellent question. It's hard to follow the threat all the way back where this whole thing start with my career before behavioral health and before people before am i is in organizational behavior organization design work motivation all of that stuff and so i was very familiar with organizational responses to stress burnout and so on at from that perspective and i guess it was interesting to me that when i moved into behavioral house that the responsibility for resolving secondary trauma burn out another thing we place to the feet of the individual. It was curious to me that there were more organizational responses or there wasn't 'cause it really is both an thing. Top-five causes of secondary trauma and burnout or organizationally priced. And yet we rely on the individual to solve their own problems. It is something that's both him. But interestingly i give much credit to child welfare and some criminal justice organizations that tried to figure out how can we help our clinicians best so they took a little bit more of an organizational approach to this so very appreciative of that developing some programs early on even before i met kristin interestingly around implementing solutions for resolving and addressing secondary trauma particularly in high stress workplaces like prisons like child welfare agencies. What it takes to do that. I guess i've just been eager student of secondary trauma versus that talking again. What's interesting is that what you're is before you to be met before the tv's get into this type of lane. Budget independent was these issues. Were arraigned trauma was ryan traumas. Ryan bernard books run as well. As people's efforts to responded. Were around and what you've been doing is exploring. What is it that people need and doubt idea that has turned into twenty twenty one. The word just went enough already and are clamoring for support. So what we're curious about. An where does motivation fed. Enter this response for you. Generally at first and then they can get more specific examples for me. The thing i'd like to really speak about in terms of motivational interviewing is about the spirit so whether or not work with motivational interviewing at the level of individual practitioner certainly at the level of receiving services but also in terms of organization. So you've had folks. You're speaking about motivational interviewing for leadership in organization. The thread that goes through all of them and certainly interventions as well but more importantly the global threat about the values and attitudes that motivational interviewing standard m. i that motivational interviewing for leadership organizations. The thing that really lose it altogether values wise is about having the spirit. The spirit of working in collaboration the spirit and giving people voice the vocation of the people who just incredibly empowering and leave so much about being disempowered. The idea of having compassion. And we'll speak to this bit later about this idea of compassion stress. Real cause of burnout. But how can we have more compassion satisfaction and being able to orient towards that and also of course having acceptance strategies and being aware of what we can and can't control and again. I think what. Ali seen so critical that this is not just an individual solution individuals. You'd be powered in these. Tools can really help empower them in terms of finding voice but also on the organizational level. How much are we allowing people to be organized to collectively determine but they can benefit from. And how much are we willing to collaborate instead of that. Kristen and i agree with you. That emory has a vital role in strengthening not only individual effectiveness but also strengthening work relations. The quality of supervision leadership implementation really pays off so christner introducing the notion of the spirit and the four components of it as it relates to burn out and italy could explorer in a bit more detail about. How is it that if a clinician certainly if an organization is operating in a manner consistent with the spirit how would that lead to lowered rates reduced rates of burn out compassion fatigue. And some of these things that we're talking about. How does that actually work has. Actually we're right exactly and so sounds great. But how do we do this. What does this look like. And there's actually one article like to refer to that hub in the show notes. That is one of the best. I found that spoke to this and it was article called care. Coordinators integrated care brune out risk perceive supports in job satisfaction and authors bids out. A you came out two thousand eighteen and they were looking at bruno. Risking job satisfaction reported among care coordinators. And i was particularly interested in this article because these folks are doing work. That are typical I certainly have done. But the people i train do. So many folks working in crisis support services homelessness services to say unhealthy folks working with people with co-occuring conditions and they were looking at when people feel job satisfaction and found action. Lot people study actually. We're feeling pretty satisfied. What was going on for them. Picking up these factors and some of the factors the thought that contributed to lower risk of burnout included appropriate training especially on the particular corners rule and the complex conditions in diverse. Needs right and i found that to be so true when teaching and training motivational interviewing like the spiritual important how to actually use the skills but how to actually put it into the context of what this person is doing in their job. How does it show up for you percent actually talking about this yesterday in a coaching group. How empowering that is to have a sense of a skill to be able to practice it and feel like you have such access to it in your toolbox when you need it that right there just reduces so much stress mccranie talking about just feeling so much more comfortable just knowing. Oh we just made that link with this concept in how really good at try it out so powerful they also found really important was having supportive supervisors and managers probably no surprise there but managers that can hear stress that have a willingness. There's a lot. Systemically that supervisors and managers may not be able to immediately change and their environment specially public health services. Speaking again here in the us but maybe elsewhere as well but there's thinks managers and supervisors can definitely do in terms of culture. There's ways you can still help. People feel empowered in their culture even allowing people to have certain voice being able to share about difficulties being able to help shift conversations on things. We can't versus things. We cannot do work. There's ways of being able to enhance that. And also another factor that was helping with burnout was just having support among colleagues in not working in a way that seems isolated being able to have a sense community so i think motivational interviewing this idea of being able to be transparent and to be willing to hear things even things that are really uncomfortable is part of that spirit is a really powerful way of helping folks are out there. Just be so genuine and be able to have access to the schools need when they need them. Yeah thanks for that christian and we certainly know that there's in brisk relationship between compassion and burnout and it may be that our compassionate nature is. What draws us into this work in the first place and may or may not make us more vulnerable to secondary trauma and yet without that we don't have as many protective factors as we might be able to access some other things that we know about work. Motivation generally or that the causes of satisfaction and dissatisfaction work tend to be independent from one. Another where we know leads to a meaningful experience at work as the work itself is meaningful that we have others who believe in our tommy that there's a sense of importance to the work that we do as well as that we are important orgainzation that individuals matter that people matter so this idea that people are dispensable and replaceable on all of that my holds a very different point of view which is a highly protected factor about the word that the whole person matters makes difference what we know to is beyond a certain salary beyond enough or beyond adequate conditions that organizations put more into that it doesn't necessarily make a difference or increased work satisfaction the things that actually make a difference ours things that are not as costly that relate to the human being and the integrity and absolute worth of the individual and so we know that brings that in our interactions are infused with that in the workplace both from top down all the way around that time i is in the air and in the water of the organization did make sound really big impact not only should the bottom line to the quality of relationships and supporting protective factors from the boat the idea of our our compassion maybe reflects enough our sensitivity to other people's need and desire to be willing to go into situations props all their people don't tomasi we're willing to tear fires to support other people but the risk you're describing is what happens to us when we're in fighting that emotional fire for someone else or with somebody else and what your suggestions the importance of us nut trying to do that ourselves the damore we're in relation a sushi creatures are more we're in relation with other people in a meaningful relationships that more protected we are to go in and to come back owed and recharge batteries to go back and again comeback. It's where we're gonna come late and being on a ruin that potentially the risks are increased for us and that we're picking up that vicarious trauma that secondary trauma of someone else's pain and just that shift in culture. I guess a lot of people recognize the deficit between the economic needs of an organization which has to keep the lights on with the desire of the practices which is to be helpful in those things can be almost like oil and water. That organizations needs individual practitioners clients needs may not always be balanced. But it's a bit hard we explore. How'd you support organization. No if you practice some of this will be financially better off. You will benefit financially as a consequence because people will stand work longer stay more efficient and be more effective and can we continue to explore that we've had more detail. How'd you help organizations and practitioners do that because one thing memphis will recognize it as we enter just motivation and trainings. People say yet. This is lovely. But i don't have the time or i'm busy enough. So they have introduced. A new skill can sometimes be felt as an additional pressure itself. Because i'm already. I'm just wondering. How do you support training groups and organizations began to explore hard to do this in a way. That does an odd to already. Busy lives right. There's almost a positioning here. I can't afford to do am. I are too busy. Can't forward and try to find thoughtful way of saying you can't afford not to do and so how to help with this idea of not am is being an add on but mis being a bridge or a tool. That actually is going to be able to help you get to what it is you want to do because it's so much about how do i engage maybe clients but also how do i help. Keep my staff engaged. How do i help. Create this warm friendly and welcoming environment where people were feeling. They can support each other in times of need. This is something. That's this is a recipe for that. This is what you're searching for so in your day to day work. How can this be the way you do your day to day work so when you do an interview how can you start to include the so. Sometimes i'll do in the training. I tried to get really specific. Like pool in your challenges. Work do you to really detroit. It clear about. What might your typical assessment. Our conversation over here look like and then how can we practice it away using these particular skills. Fine folks need to have experienced a very concrete experiences. There's something else you said to glen. I wanna focus on. I think this is really important. Which is just the importance of dialectical thinking of both and so the folks get into this thing of half to do this and motivational interviewing is going to be the something different in how to three in. Yes gonna keep the doors open and we can do this in terms of having compassion and our staff towards others. So how do we bring them both together with a certain amount of acceptance that there's always gonna be discomfort. There's always going to be something we can improve. That's what continuous quality improvements. All about two. And having that orientation around that and there's one thing i'll say just really quickly also about this to continue to answer your question also thinking about this idea of the gun from charles ugly who's really well known in the leaders of thinking about in research and compassion fatigue and this is from an article probably about fourteen years ago or so. But it's such an important article about this idea of how to increase compassion satisfaction moving away from compassion stress to compassion satisfaction. In this conversation there is idea of. It's not about will. This is try to only focus on the happy things at work right. Because that's not realistic. In it's not sustainable newbies relate to that but it's cowed we take the real struggles. We have and be honest about that and be genuine and be open. Have a conversation while also spending time to really focus on our successes. So i can be looking at places where people are not doing well on our program. How can we engage them. This is a real problem. People feeling burned out. How do we start to address that. And where do we see the places where we've had clinicians who have supported so many people in the community kinda stories. Do we have helping. People tell their stories of successes as well as those places of where we need to change so that can be a both answer. The more begin increase positivity ratio of those things of success compassion. Just success in terms of great outcomes right to be able to focus on those the more we can actually increase that ratio compared to the stressors the more able to really flourish. And that's the idea of being able to find ways to help staff flourish by shifting. Some of that focus. I love that. Kristen assist idea that some organizations or systems might be drawn to promoter strengthened flourishing. It's also the case that some organizations systems might be more drawn to tangible bottomline things or what's going to be different. If i do this m i may very well be the glue that holds everything together rather than something that we have to add or it's going to break our backs but this may be a little bit of a long response but when we think about the bottom line. The implications of burnout secondary trauma globally costs more than one trillion in loss productivity with life and death consequences suicide rates for caregivers or forty percent higher for men and one hundred and thirty percent higher than in the general population. Caregivers are most susceptible to these things that it is the case that organizations without systems to support the wellbeing of their employees not only have higher turnover productivity but higher healthcare costs. Their employees are nearly three times as likely to seek a different job. More often call in and more often to visit emergency rooms so if organizations take some of those things into account when they make decisions about what evidence based practices. Should we employ m. i seems like an immediate solution to them. Some organizations may be. I don't really care about all that. I don't care about these aggregate statistics. But i do care about this. Can i reduce missed appointments. Can we reduce positive ways. Can we increase the number of people who will give resources that they actually follow through on those things. Can we increase the number of times that someone comes knocking on the door and the person being served is willing to let them yet. What level really speaks to organization does an office me to have a focus group that does this and implemented and see how it goes and then roll out to the entire organization doesn't have to be the whole apple at one time. There are many ways to enter this in many reasons. That people might want to think about this. Yeah you're really laying out global or more population based rationale for strength space m. i liked interventions also systemic reasons or systemic ideas. If you have an intervention that works better it would not be a huge leap to assume that the organization itself would do better from the business standpoint which we don't do a whole lot of talking about business and finances on this podcast. But i think everyone can understand the reality. That organizations really aren't going to succeed if the business side of it at least okay. If not flourishing. So using an approach like am i might keep people engaged treatment in a more consistent way. And there's evidence to suggest that there may be fewer missed appointments or late cancellations and things like that. If the relationship between the provider the clients are stronger. You'd be sorts of things in my own work in my own institution of thought about the interventions for burnout have seemed to be more at the systemic departmental level. And things that are i would imagine helpful and welcomed but things like wellness days having a lot of language in terms of communication around being aware of one's own needs and to not risks of out things like that but i've often thought about the in the room burnout interventions that we might have our burn out prevention interventions. And if i could go back to those four elements of them spirit that you discuss kristen. It actually makes a lot of intuitive sense. And hopefully the research will support this as more research is done in this area but if we were take partnership for instance that's an important part of the anti spirit one of the four elements and you can imagine if you are in partnership with a client. That is a much different experience than certainly if you were an adversarial relationship with the client but even if you were in a positive relationship one where there was a great deal of burden on you for that person's outcomes than that would be really hard and if you multiply that one interaction by fifty if that was your caseload size boy that would be quite a burnout risk. If you had to carry this responsibility for someone else's well being in that way that it's not that we don't care about people's outcomes in i but we engage people in this partnership more egalitarian way acceptance in the same way we can acknowledge in really understand that clients have the freedom to do what they like once they leave our offices and we really embrace that and use that as a way to engage with them. That's a much different way of being much different emotional experience on the provider than if we felt like we had to control them and make sure that they never had another drink or never had another drug or whatever it might be. I just think that there's some really practical intuitive links to the elements of the spirit. That would help the practitioner. So just curious what your thoughts are. Botha talk all the different levels of being able to prevent burnout rocky sake. Systemically and organizationally and for individuals. I knew for individual training often. This pressure you can see comes up with people. Like i know so. Let's be evocative. I get this. Evocative becomes an issue right. I'm supposed to be a certain way but I have productivity in. But what if they don't talk some people. Just don't talk and i'm supposed to be evocative or i try to partner with them and they won't say anything or they don't know and so that in a way weirdly right like this team is speaking about the spirit. Sometimes folks get worried about if they're doing emirate that coming up so sometimes i just us stop just breathe and let's just think about a way of coming at our work with just incredible curiosity and wonder in almost even practicing that just wondering with somebody are wondering about somebody or just okay. Someone doesn't wanna talk so much. But they're here in the room. And sometimes it's just about visualizing sitting with folks visualizing just sitting with the challenges inc just continuing to breathe and continuing just to notice into continue to think about. What could i'd be curious about with this person. They're here for a reason. And what do they say non verbally and just helping practitioners relax out of the fixit mode of having to somehow problem solve it. Move into this place of curiosity and wonder and i also like to add a little piece to individual practitioners of being in touch with your own values being in touch with your own values in. Never you do this work and always being connected to at this point regardless with organization wants regardless of maybe a challenge. I have engaging this person help him. What i'm doing right now. How does it help How am i really working in a way. That's consistent with who. I want to be the practitioner whether that's compassionate whether that's effective too so there's a sense of being able to even the time of great darkness or times agreed struggle being able to make decisions at around. Okay i'm here with this person in. I'm still in a place where feeling i'm working at my level of compassion or i'm working at my level of helping or whatever it is at someone finds important just because i think that so protective for us to be able to always have our values as an inker able to think about the words. I say the next intervention i do. How is that helping me this. So that's the way a work with them. Just almost cavin that visualization imagining being in giving permission just to slow it down observe mid even take a step back so there isn't all this internal pressure to somehow being the spirit that does it become yet another stressor for someone like that. Kristen i feel like am is a way of helping us become even more defining more evidence to be affected with others. My only self worth is my only efficacy comes from making sure. This person achieves a certain outcome or that. I really carry that person in all fifty and everybody else on my shoulders at all times. That's not only an impossible burden but it closes off many other opportunities for us to be effective with. So i guess and really feeling like am is about bringing a sense of humility and rightsizing our role in people's lives sometimes in training with me. We may do some self reflecting back to these or other kinds of training activities around the expert trap and righting reflex and even if well intended. Where does that go. How can we take our good intentions and use the Effective way in a right-sized way from a position of humility of sharing expertise sharing the table tables big enough for all the experts to come to it. Whether it's us working with one person was a group with a family. We need all those voices to be her that the solutions that we're gonna come up with together. We're going to be far more effective than the ones that i on. My own will have available for that person. So i think it's a way of expanding and enlarging our effectiveness with others. I guess opening that door has been one of the most profound things i have seen. People make shifts around as they come away from their light training. The idea of becoming bigger as a consequence of learning and experience motivation whether as a practitioner or whereas plant and at fettes very much was we had a conversation. Earlier in our journey stance. Dangerous talking about compassion and stand offered this beautiful and safe to capacity talked about his dad. Who was a civil engineer and said my dad showed compassion. Definitely from her i did. His comparisons are civil. Engineer was ensuring that the buildings that he built were safest possible for other people. So it sounds. There's this universal source called compassion high. Each one of us individually may manifest. That will depend on the rules. We have within the human. 'have and for helpers it's the instinct to be helpful people run an emotional level around behavioral level whereas a their comparisons but making sure that the business stays in the black and the monitor. Keep everything going so when we're talking to were not trying to tournament. Their therapist explorers hike. Can you do what you do. Well taken into. Kind that these relational factors could actually see you money and help you to flourish as a practiced of accountancy to make this business. Really really profitable and alongside of that is the whole consequence. Guess of from a perspective given the fact that in my experience people here in helping game probably of what i described as a higher sensitivity to other people's distress and as a consequence of that. We're not only come into contact with but we're experiencing their distress in a much more acute level within sales. And i wonder what thoughts you have our ideas you have. But how do you support. People begin to recognize the difference between themselves and maybe other people in the h-have argumentation demint. Were there actually taken on. Would the secondary trauma hoji helping differentiate. Is this yours is somebody else's i offer that i love your question. Glenn offer that christian. Because i know she's got something to say about not surprise. You know she has been the same. But i just wanted to make an observation about videoconference fatigue and one of the things that i think. We need to be a little kinder to ourselves about these days. Especially as helpers or more tuned to visual verbal other cues and a foot and a half away or meter and a half away even at best from a video screen all day long. We're taking in a lot of data. Were wearing down the precious resources that we have and if we say yes to every single request ever meeting that comes up. I've got time. So i can feel it all of a sudden a scheduled creep thing where we say. Yes yes yes yes being day absolutely worn out by everything that we're taking in an attending to in a way that's different than if we were in person or if we actually took breaks away from video conference platform fantastic tool are not gonna let it go myself. Just think we have to bring a little bit or self compassion and think about some very practical strategies for helping ourselves in these moments of being able to step away and provide buffers not only during videoconferencing but at the end of our days to transition to the rest of our lives did anyway. But i know. Kristen is very eager to respond to repeat your question thinking. I'll yes. I actually have an exercise. Do visualizations with folks right boundary creation and. Just imagining ourselves being a compassionate relationship but also having boundaries again. It's the both. And like i can be in relationship with you but also be able to have some sense of bringing what your energy as and being able to have some boundary by also sending out my own helping. There's all kinds of visualizations around this. There's one i can actually do right now if you like this from buddhist tradition. But it's brought into a lot of different practices and bloomer secular practices from cold penguin meditation idea. And it's such a beautiful way. I think and i do it a lot. it's helpful. I also have in terms of training or staff briefing to do a gain of a staff meeting even helping people practice this you can do. You can just actually even right now. Just sit and notice your breath not even feeling a need to change your breath but just noticing focused on your breathing and just be present breathing in breathing out and it's distracting thoughts come up Go ahead and notice them. And let them go continuing to breath going to invite you to link your intention to your breath on your xl breath out the light of basic goodness. You're wished to help alleviate pain and suffering on the nfl invite the snooky darkness of negativity and suffering into your heart were will be transformed into light. Maybe bring to mind the pain that you've help someone with things you've noticed just noticing. That pain is abbreviated in an exchange. That pain sadness that loss just breathing out the light of freedom and peace. Imagine as you breathe breathe in that. Pain transform it into light and compassion reading it out that person to the universe to yourself just noticing. The breathing in breathing out compassion. Come back and just sit with whatever that brings up in the moment just noticing was coming up for you now. Love the idea and the vacation to see ourselves as some a process of converting one energy to another through our intention that we're willing to accept that there is being there is darkness stirs loss in the word and the byline ourselves to accept that but also to celebrate the gift of our own creativity over on positively of our own internal light that we can begin to help transform that not just for ourselves but for everyone through our intention of just paying. Attention really isn't just simple. Couple minutes of just doing that. I noticed for myself. I start to feel so less stressed and so less exhausted and so much more like i have a superpower Visually what brings up for me. Emotionally just physically is a powerful. Change is just a couple minutes of doing that and again. that doesn't solve all our problems with other things. Have the work on. But it's all about putting all this into a toolbox and having access to tell my students a lot. We are tool. So we have to keep our tool malfunctioning. And working and your honor that fact in that this idea of self care sometimes. It can feel so shallow but that. It's something that we have to do. I call it radical self. We have to do something every day even if it seems like the smallest thing like the daily maintenance talk about wellness recovery action planning which is also evidence based practice. That's used maintain. Wellness came out at the mental recovery movement. Twenty five years ago and wrap as a great connection with m. i. n. This whole idea of. How do we have control of ourselves in our wellness and that we can actually have some way of being able to put things together that we can do every day to keep functioning keep us happy. Keeps us vital. You kristen. That was really beautiful just to offer an additional option. Mrs from a new resource called motivational interviewing for mental health practitioners. A toolkit for skills enhancement the practitioner tool called a self compassion break. So i would invite you to think of current life work struggle. it's causing distress in. Please place one or both hands over your heart while still holding the struggle in mind. C team sell this a moment of software south for his part of life. We i'd be kind to myself in this moment. I give myself the compassion. Thank you both christian and olli for offering the meditations. Both i could imagine people using them in the moment listening to this episode as a break for themselves. Also introducing concepts and ideas idea of noticing and curiosity and the breathing in and breathing out and it can be a fill in the blank. You can breathe in breathe out anything that you like and alley. You're offering of suffering as something that can acknowledge we don't necessarily have to fight against it. It's part of humanity and maybe in the accepting of that. That can be a reduction in the burden that we take on so often. So we've done a bit of exploring. We've been discussing burnett reduction at an organizational level. We've talked a bit about things more recently here on the individual level whether it's in the room way of thinking about it and also some exercises that you both offered. What about some other organizational strategies that institutions are departments by being able to employ to help the culture the practitioners that work in those settings. Thank you said and looking again just the literature including current think comments. About what are we gonna do about folks now do this pandemic and really struggling in. I think what's hard is to get started. There's so much. And there's some things that are relatively low hanging fruit so to speak or things that might be able to kerr more quickly than others and one thing that i think could be helpful. If there's any opportunity in meetings or other settings even some of the online things that we're doing now to give practitioners opportunity share their successful experiences to get shift more towards places where people have been successful and have seen things that have really given them some satisfaction and that during times to leave and in case sessions times were often talking about some more challenges and things we need help with always getting back to some of the positive meaning about any of this and even just the willingness sometimes to be engaged in the struggle is an aspect of positivity and the strength that a practitioner has to approach very challenging situations. That in of itself is amazing into able to really very intentionally reflect on that some other recommendations as come out of some of the work breeding compassion fatigue. Guess articles will be in the show notes include to extent that we can do. This is caseload variety helping people move around and have maybe point of view you get different perspective. An agency specially can't give a lot of extra time off necessarily but that might be a helpful thing but really also very much trying to problem. Solve appropriate time off ultimately we do need brakes and time off and working so hard to seals like it's a never ending amount of work and yet when we have breaks making sure we take breaks making sure we're giving people breaks in that breaks a row breaks a culture to develop and reminders occur and out of office messaging around. I'm going to be gone. I will not be checking my messages. Those kinds of boundaries right now are extremely critical and these are things that we can get started on relatively easily without a lot of investment and other types of resources. Come allie was talking about earlier. There's a lot of solutions that don't require tons of extra resource our finance things for that. Kristen i agree with you. That honoring and respecting restorative breaks. That don't require a diagnosis. To accidents are really helpful for increasing compassionate workplace and it becomes to be part of the culture. Were not just prizing. Those who can humble brag about the most number of hours. This amiss in were that is less prized where there were self care himself. Compassion in restorative brakes. Start to be priced in the culture. That's a bit of a shift in that. Both an thing again that individuals have to be encouraged to do this and organizations after honor and respect and prize. Those kinds of things we can also think of. Some organizations are beginning to do so reflective things are encouraging players to do self reflective things at the close of the day that really provides some sort of role clarification prospection into transitioning from your day into the rest of your life. One of the things that's been true in the pandemic is that not only. Are we managing coping in listening in often. Being immersed in the stresses of others. And those are the same stresses we are now going home to ourselves. There used to be the saying. At least i can leave at the office or something. Not the case we're experiencing the same thing. There's never really arrested from it. So just recognizing those kinds of strains maybe also things that were experiencing in our own lives to really create demarcation between work and life harder to do when working from home. There are all kinds of tools and strategies for helping people who work mainly by computer to even do rituals closing down a blanket over the computer putting it to bed so that you could move on to the rest of your life. Oh kinds of individual strategies but i think organizations have to be part of encouraging people to honor respect their own absolute worth and feel honored and respected for taking time than it is actually a good thing not only for the individual but also for the health and wellbeing of the organization and certainly for those. We serve no question about that. A more refreshed and restored. Clinician is better for everyone all directions all the way here and i guess when the message is really wrong from me in this conversation is just the importance of acceptance that after sixteen months of global pandemic. There is a lot of stress is a lot of fear. There's a lot of confusion alongside of the opportunities that have been presented and denver taste his. Can i begin to witness without judgment can recognize. This is all true and brings me back to something from the won't set to me but the union yang symbol. Which was the light in. The yang is not that. It's not an attempt to turn the darkness into late at simply number taste for those who are enlightened to stay enlightened journal darkest of tanks and it's almost the invitation for us as practitioners. Don't try and change the world by russian identity because that's where the drama exists. One of things that we can do for ourselves as first of all recognize. This is the way it is right now. That itself is beyond my control but what is within. My control is high. I look after myself as begin to help looking after other people. So it's back to that. Both on dan. It's including myself i do. I include myself in all of the people. I take care of an important for us and individual practitioner whether you're working in the department whether you're working with individuals have trauma in their lives and i think it's such an important message for us to hear and we really appreciate you come along share and there's always the case we would and could continue to talk longer but time has caught up with us and at this point we usually asked our guest two questions. The first of which is what else has happened. Perhaps in your life but maybe motivation win oriented or something else but just what else is. Don't that's catching your attention that you might want to share with us about this. There's a lot going on that. I'm interested in but in service of this idea of balance talk about something professional something personal they quickly and professionally a counselor educator and one of the things i'm working on is d- centering the dominant culture and all of our psychology work which is really a powerful exercise like trying to find how to make my curriculum anti-racist and less white focus in hetero normative all these pieces like really trying to bring in voices up in minority which means on basically in the process of rewriting everything and it's really challenging. But i'm excited about doing it and looking at the different ways of really supporting that process and knowing that i'm very privileged to be in a place where i can do that in a community where i can do that and knowing that i have colleagues in this country that are really struggling with being able to bring in things like critical race theory. So i'm very much interested in all that and looking forward to doing that. Very challenging tasking recognizing that it's going to be hard process and personally also related to environmental pieces. I am just really benefiting from being outside and having been outside these last sixteen months or so and redoing my garden. Because i'm in a place right now. We don't have a lot of water so trying to figure out how to continue to thrive even though the world around us is changing and just loving and realizing how much i thrive in nature and carrying that forward. Now that we're able to go out a little bit more. Thanks for that. Kristen in glen. I'm glad you brought up the. It keeps arising the both and and it feels to me like more accepting. We are of the paradox in our life greater chance we have of transcending being in third place together. Appreciate everybody glenn and salvin. Kristen everybody joining in on this. I do a little bit of swimming. And i'm preparing for some longer slim's these days so that is a absolutely a rewarding and a never ending challenge in my life but more towards the empire professional world. I am making every effort possible to collaborate with others. It is such an exciting time to kneel to do. That and i may have been a little bit hard on video conferencing earlier in this episode. But i just want to give great big shout out to the ability to collaborate across time zones and to be with others in doing good work so very without also working on supporting generating diverse inclusive materials in the world and beyond some things. I've been thinking about specifically in the my world or strengthening the bridge to planning as well as expanding in enlarging the conversation focused to the person's cherish directions and also to incorporate collective and individual intentions within the focusing process. There may be a way that the individual can solve things by themselves. In there may be some things require more of collective orientation was on my mind leases About some exciting potential additions in how we understand and practice them is certainly and also some really cool examples of self care and just passions that you both have in terms of gardening and swimming so hope to hear about that more as time goes on and hopefully someday soon face to face. Am i forum. Who knows when we'll have our next one soon enough. Hopefully chris alley we also as we're winding things down. We ask our guests.

Why Mindfulness Matters with Kristen Manieri

"Welcome to live love. Engage the podcast where we share practical advice from a spiritual perspective on how you can live fully love deeply and engage authentically. I am your host. Gloria Grace Ram. Now let your light shine. Now must stay and welcome I am. Gloria grace ran and I'm so glad you have joined us for another episode of Live Levin Gauge and today. I am pleased to have with me. A lovely woman who I also just realized that I forgot to ask you how to pronounce your last name. And is it Metairie yes, yes. I got it right. Yeah, okay, Awesome! Well. She is the host of her own podcast called sixty mindful minutes that she launched twenty seventeen, and it's to share conversations about what it means to live a more connected, conscious and intentional life. And Kristen is also a writer with more than a decade of experience. Work has been published on Huffington post hop sugar your tango, and the Gottmann Institute blog as well as inflight magazines. ooh, well well and blogs for international airlines such as Westjet Virgin. Hoop Kudos for that. That's pretty cool. And in two thousand eighteen, Christon launched course awaken living, and she has taken countless women through the process of becoming conscious witness their wives, and as a mindfulness teacher. Her goal is to help students to become their sturdiest steadiest in calmest selves, which is something that. We're finding that we need a lot of these days as we're dealing is ongoing hand Democ so first off welcome kristen to live love engage. Thank you. It's really great to be here. Yes, it's so appreciate it. What's cool is that we even live near each other? We didn't even know that until you. Until we get. Here. It's it's a small world small world, so yeah, I actually think. I wanted to start right there with Dealing with the pandemic that we're dealing with right now, and how does. I know you teach about mindfulness. So how does that? How can be be mindful? Help us right now especially. Well it can help us on so many levels. It can help us deal with a chaotic moment you know. Maybe we looked something on the news or we got some bad news from a friend or went by toilet paper and there wasn't any. So in the in the moment when we might experience any level of anxiety, panic upsets anger frustration. Being able to tap into the tools of mindfulness to just get through that moment to just get back to some sense of centeredness in that moment, but I think a lot of us especially as we start to Kinda calculate. How long you know, this is GonNa last. Like when when do we officially call this the new normal? I think mindfulness is actually especially helpful in in creating like. How do I WANNA feel? Today. How do I? WanNa feel this week? How do I see my summer going? And how can I set my life up in my family? Open myself up to not just. Survive. What's happening but to thrive? Were Not Kmart. We're not gonNA layaway. Our happiness until a vaccine comes or This opens or that doesn't openly we were. We were wired for pleasure. It's a massive center of our brain. And we shouldn't turn it off while we are coping with what's going on in the world, so I think mindfulness can. Come to the rescue on many levels when we are when we are ready for what it offers. Well, and that brings me to another question here because there may be people out there who hear the term mindfulness though and they don't really know exactly. What does that mean exactly? How How am I? Can you define that? What what is? What does it really mean? And how could we practice? Yeah well for me it is. Bringing your attention to whatever point of focus it could be your breath. That could be your thoughts. In for the purpose of. Making creating shift, so it's not just I sense anger. I sense frustration. I'm noticing. My heart is beating faster bodies clenching. That recognition is great in critical step of becoming a more mindful person, but then it's how how will I shift that do I? Just need some nurturing. AM, I. Am I playing story in my head? Maybe not necessarily be true, AM I. Am I holding back, saying something that may be needed needs to be said, and that's why I'm feeling so clench. So, yes, we return ourselves to a point to focus to the present moment, but there's there's there's something as human beings can do beyond that, which is we can, we can transcend. We can shift. We can transform what this moment has brought us while still surrendering it not as fixers, not as perfectionist, but just as people who want to return to a set point of calm, sturdy steady. Yeah I appreciate that explanation it's. Is there. Is there like a? I suppose we can be doing this any time during the day, but is, there may be some A. Better part than others or maybe a way be away is a good idea to maybe start our day with that intention of being mindful of Serb maybe morning censoring practice. Perhaps how yeah a good idea? And how would you do that? Yeah. I'm I'm such a fan of the idea of frontloading your day with what's most important. And so that could be a mindfulness practice spiritual practice, it could be your exercise. It could be when you get outside could be when you have some intentional time with the people you share your life with, but whatever it is, it's like. Honestly most of the most important things I do every day our complete by eleven am and so I. Know that I've done all of the things that I need to do to set myself up to be the person that I want to be in this world to contribute what I want to contribute to create when I WANNA create. So morning centering practice. As the really the first thing that you do in the day that first thing you do for yourself at homecoming that returning back to yourself before you hand your nervous system over to social media or the news links these minutes, or maybe maybe our of just peace and reflection and centeredness really sets the tone for the rest of the day. So for me. It looks like some sort of stillness. Maybe that's meditation may be. That's just literally just sitting still. And being with whatever thoughts I'm thinking, I usually read and I usually do some journaling, and lately I 'cause there's more time in the morning or schedule has shifted I'll gopher. Nice good long walk, and that is like I say it's like the rudder of the day. It's Nerds to navigate day and my interstate to where I wanted to to go that that steadiness. Yeah, that's awesome. Yeah, I do similar things like I get up and first thing I do is actually I do take my dogs out. Of Her but then I spent time I. DO Raiding I've been? Reading a book about. Math as saying I think right now, and then I do some meditation for Awhile, and some during Lang and then I've been. Reading of course in miracles so and daily word community so once I. Get all of that under my belt. It's like yeah, then I can start focusing in on. Okay I guess I can look at my email and work. Yeah, but it definitely is a good way to get started, but. I do I do meditate you mentioned meditation, I think sometimes people think meditation and mindfulness. Maybe go hand in hand or you needed to. You necessarily have to meditate in order to practice mindfulness. Definitely, not in fact if that's the thing that's stopping you from creating some mindfulness practices, maybe even cultivating a mindfulness toolbox. I'll tell you right now. Just leave it out. Leave it out until you feel drawn to it until it actually costs you, but it it's. Going to use the word shut and. It should never be a should. You can definitely become a mindful person like you don't even have to have an official formal practice ver- mindfulness. You could become someone like you were saying. Going on your your morning. Walk with your dogs. That is a is an amazing opportunity to practice mindfulness noticing the birds in Navy picking up which how many different calls you can hear. Noticing the smell is the sense in the air me. Your dog certainly are so like. What are they smelling? What. Are they now that I can't smell? Noticing, the light changing as the day starts to break in the sun starts to rise, so the any any moment were given the opportunity practice mindfulness. You hear a lot of mindfulness talking about. Washing the dishes folding laundry I, mean we we? We can return to the experience of living our life in a very intentional deliberate way all the time. All the time driving car it's it never has to be a formal practice. I even find that just reading reading about specific topics in really orienting myself to be really like steeped in them for a little while like really contemplated about them. Is it great mindfulness practice and that might not look what. Teachers say it. No, while I'm not sitting in Lotus pose and I'm I'm not. I am orienting my life. Two words transformation transcendence I I'm learning. I'm actively engaged in my personal evolution. So yeah I'm really glad you asked that because I. I wish I could go to billboard somewhere, maybe on interstate for and saying you don't have to meditate to become a mindful person. Absolutely and I think it's really I think it all boils down to. Being in the moment I think just being present with what you are where you are in the and I think that's why maybe some people say. You could be president just washing the dishes and really just. Focus on focusing on that and and focusing and folding clothes I mean I like I like doing that sometimes, just really taking the time to you know, do a good shop. They're all nice. Am Not have to be constantly thinking about. Oh, I've got to do this I to do that so I think to just be present in focusing on whatever you're doing whether it is even just staring out the window. Get a lovely Bengo here and sometimes I. Do I just like look out at the trees and just like? Take a breath for Yeah Yeah. It's really interesting the. The whole point of mindfulness to me the benefit like the answer to the question. Why would I bother to become a more mindful person? Is has nothing to do. With how long I can clear my mind or said, or how many birds I can pick up when I'm walking. It has to do with the fact that when my daughter does something that I'm not loving that I have the wherewithal to pause for a moment, and I can respond. With some intention with some really checking it to my values as a mother. Instead of just blowing up at her, so I spend much of my life still asleep. Lost in my thoughts, not not here just going through my reactive my reflexive life. And I. Buy My my aim is to spend much more time of my life. In awake wake full state in a conscious state where I am aware of what I'm saying. Aware of the energy that I'm putting out. I'm I'm aware of the thoughts that I'm. Invited in for tea that are just as limited at you know aware of my energy where I'm aware of how how intending to this human I get to hitch a ride with you know this. Go around, so I think for people who are thinking. Why become more mindful so I can just go on a meditation retreat. Back. No, it's so that in your life in the regular living of your life you can, you can be the patient compassionate, loving, empathetic, generous creative. person that maybe you strive to be not like a fixing or I got to be perfect, but like my life just works better when I'm really patient in kind with my kids. I feel better I. Don't spend a Lotta time ruminating about. Why did I say that? Or why do they do that like? My household just feels better to live in when I am steady, 'cause how I go is how they go. I'm the rhetoric I am the barometer of this family whether I. Like it or not so. You know I really think that for people to see oh. Yeah, this is, it's like I'm Gonna I'm GonNa do some the bicep curls. Not so I can walk around all dancing. Look how many bicep curls I can do like I. Do bicep curls because I I want my muscles to be strong, so I can do other things you know, so. I can participate in all aspects of life in in a much more limitless way. Absolutely and it's really great that you're doing this now while you have young children because I wish I wished I had known miss I mean. I do I? Am My sister used to tell me she's like you? You are better, mom. Our MOM was She was she did the best she could. With the knowledge she had and I strive to do better but I. You know if I could do it over again now with the knowledge I have now. I would definitely have been a lot more patient definitely some times where I was like. Oh! Wish I. So! It's it's the journey where we all learn hopefully I. I can now share my experience. What others am like? You're doing as well to help people now maybe. Prevent them from taking some of those steps in an how to do things like being mindful to be able to. Give Yourself. Be Opportunity as you said to be able to stop and think okay. How do I WANNA react? This yeah. Well and I think the the mothering element is probably one of the reasons why. Ninety five percent of my clients are mothers were still at home in the process of of helping to raise their children. Is that thought of do I want to see them off for college or wherever they go in life? And have the thought. God? I wish I could do it over because in so many areas of our lives we do get do overs. We can start our careers over. We can start out relationships over. There's a lot of. By. You can't ever get your seven year old again or I you know, and so there's I i. definitely approach that topic with them a real preciousness in insincerity, because it is true and I I need a lot of MOMS. Who wished that they could have done it differently in say to those people. As you alluded to. We do the best we can with what we know. And when we know better, we do better a very butchered version of something Maya Angelou said but. The whole idea is like being able to give yourself space in grace. Insane I didn't know better, and I did better I did do better. And now I know better, and it's like. How does that inform the mother than I am now? So yeah, absolutely yeah, and I mean I mean one thing that I I did do which I know my. I don't really remember my mind doing maybe she have. But I would apologize and yeah. You know for like I was like. I would like I'm sorry. I overreacted, or you know a nicer I yelled as you a, and and at least I think that has helped them, because I am very I'm very blessed I have both grown up. In their twenties now, but are really good kids there don't and so I like to think I guess I did do some stuff right along the way along with my husband so. yeah so so. For All of you who are having regrets, don't regret, says yeah, the best you can and yeah, always have opportunities to continue to improve, and that's it and you can always have discussions even with your adult children say you know. I had it to do over a wish. I would do something now. You have kids you don't do your mom did now. You try to improve as well. Yeah, we'll end like. We we don't want to give our children a childhood without any struggle and so. There's going to be struggled outside of the home and maybe struggle inside at the home and there's value in that. Especially, if if later in life. You An an adult child can metabolize that together, and they can now understand you. One of the things I often say with my my women's group is I. Don't want to be a mystery to my kids I. Don't I? Want them to really understand that I struggle. On The Times that means that. An unsavory version of myself arrives on the scene and I can absolutely apologize for that later, but I also want them to understand like. Just a human being just like them. I have bad days. I have hormonal cycle I have hopes and wishes, and dreams anxieties and disappointments and. All the things you know, one of the things in our family in our house is that I've really just been really honest about. Is it when I go out in the world whether it's to grocery store we have. We went to a social distancing birthday party yesterday. They had rented an ice cream truck and everybody stood six feet apart, and I hadn't thought that it was going to affect me the same way. The grocery store does which is i. just need to lay down I. Feel like I'm carrying a backpack with. Hundreds of pounds of boulders when I I don't know, I'm sad. My nervous system shot my. UPSET THERE I don't I can't even there's there's just so many fields right and I felt that when I got back from the social distancing birthday party and I. I'm been so honest with everybody in my house. My kids are nine and eleven both girls and my husband like. Who I am not good right like I need to lay down. I need a hug. I, need just process i. need to just let this Yucky energy move through. And, so it's I don't I? Don't become like this mysterious like what's wrong with mom like? They know exactly what's wrong with me I. let them know. Here's what's happening in my head. Like here's what I'm struggling with. Here's what I'm having a hard time with, and while as adults we wanna be responsible about that. We never WANNA make. Our kids feel fearful or or. The off our therapists by hitting. It is lovely to be seen by them to actually have them. Know Me and I. Don't want to have to do all that later. In Life, Yup I may still do lane like here's what I was going through, but for now I, I feel very known by my children and there's a lot of the comfort in that. Yeah solely how? When I ask you. One last thing before we start to ramp up here. Is it important to have a maybe A. Particular like a sacred space in your home to practice mindfulness. Is that useful? If so how do you create one? I, love this question Gloria. Because I I mean yes. I really think that we each need our own little sacred space and when you think about. The average home in the United States is like I. Don't know twenty five hundred square feet or something like that twenty two hundred square feet. Only think about how you you need just a fraction of that a little corner, a little refuge. That's yours and maybe you've got a lamp and you've got a little basket with your journal and your books, and maybe you got a nice little meditation Kushner Chair. That's yours and You can light a candle and. I have a little Buddhist statue with mine. Maybe for some people, it could be a crucifix like just. A place that when I go there, my brain goes. Aw, this is where we go and do that. This is where we go and return to that that sort of reflective contemplative space so I-, hundred percent agree, and for some people that might be their bed, you know. Maybe they can create it by grabbing a certain pillow, a certain blanket and in their portable basket, some people it might be outside I think we have to just get really creative. When we walk around our home and say what what little plot can I make my. We're going and and and really feel like. Why shouldn't you you have a space in the house? The just yours? And in terms of like the practicality. Of It. Definitely go onto pinterest. You can look up like God. Your spaces or yoga spaces or at home meditation corners. Get lots of inspiration about that but I think it's just starting with things that you already love. I I would really warn against like going especially, because you can't right now, but going on Amazon or going to homegoods and dislike ooh, that candle that quote or whatever and be like. I don't think we need to do that. We already have our comforts at home, so it's like kind of bringing us together with some real intention analogy, but. Yeah I I'm a huge fan of making your own little sanctuary in your sacred space. I love mine. Have One. I do and I used to actually do it in my office, but my office is like right across from our bedroom, and so sometimes then I would hear my husband get up in the morning and so I finally realized we. We have the benefit of a two story house, so we've got a spare room downstairs. That's sort of the catchall. Get a lot of. It but there is a bed in there and I set up. My I have a meditation cushion. I have actually so have it at the foot of the bed, so I can kind of lean up against the benefit. And and so that's my area. We've got to get a little bookcase in there and I have a few a little charge fees and things in there as well and. Stuff case I decided might once in a while, but that's my area so I. Just I get to go downstairs in that way. Only the cat might come in and. Sometimes! But most of the time I can deal with that, so it's it has been so much better having that distance having a phase that I can just be I need my quiet time in the morning to get to get centered on to do what I need to do and yeah, it has made all the difference in the world so great. It's so great do. Are you flexible with fat like do just sort of wait and see what is kind of asking what you're asking for. When you sit down and do you have sort of a regimented practice I used to. I actually go on a meditation retreat last year, and I went not a ten day silent retreat, which will how yeah it was, it was phenomenal was really good and so I learned type of. COMPO passionate type of meditation, and I do that for over a year, but now I've found that I'm more free flowing now with it. It's like I find that instead. I just sort of sometimes all navy. Just you know think of a mantra or this week I'm actually just doing a lot of gratitude and saying, thank you in in my practice, and and sometimes I don't do anything and sometimes. I still go back to the propulsion, so it just just kind of. Leading whatever the mood of the day I think dictate him, and that seems to be working out. Great Well? At Super. Great I love that. Well you mentioned that. Of course you do work with clients and you. Do you work like one on one and do group settings or how? How do you work with people? My preference is group settings I do one on one every once in a while, but how I do though awaken living course that you mentioned it's with six women at a time six to eight women, and we actually do kind of a study group of Michael, singers, but the untethered soul. Yeah, it's a really kind of pivotal reading for anybody who wants to start waking up to yeah with their head does whether mine does all day, so we read that? And then there's we go through just journal problems of asking people just to really investigate the living of their life so that that have ongoing every month. We I off offer admission to that. Start a new one that's four weeks, but for people who just WANNA. Get started especially. If they were intrigued about our conversation about that morning censoring practice I have a free five day audio course that you get emailed a different tend to twelve minute audio every day, and it's really just about what is the daily censoring practice? Why would maybe that be something? That would be helpful and beneficial. Beneficial in how do I set it up like all the practical and tactical and the tools and the wear and the wind, the and the what and all of that Kinda stuff, so that's something that I know a lot of people are drawn to, and if you just go to sixty, mindful minutes, dot com, you'll see it at the top. It's just recourse you can sign up for that so. That's a good place to start very good I will definitely make sure I have that in the show notes. For people to be able to take advantage of that, and are you active on social media at all can find you there yeah, instagram's kind of my favorite I sort of repurpose everything on all the other channels, twitter and facebook and Pinterest. Sir My freshest content where I am sort of live. Most of the time is on is on Instagram and it's Christian missionary underscore confined any there and I put up a quotes and I sometimes just throw up some little videos. Just things that I'm thinking might be helpful, and I put post what books I've read every month and a lot of people. Really let's see that because i. read a ton. Put a picture of all the books that I've read in any given any given months. That's a good place to find those two.

This year will tell us about your great year so everyone can because it was one transaction last year right one yet and i. It wasn't even someone for my sphere. This client i met on open house. Ian be found her a townhouse in in close in november in. So i was excited that also looking at my unit in won the bid. I when i asked personnel. We've interview different people in found someone that man. I just clicked pets. We have similar views about. We were easy going she respects earth annan tour and i loved that. So we really connected. She was not. The type of person is not as i prison to give you anything you gotta work for. I say okay. Cheech and i will do this year so far. I've closed seventy transactions. I have fire can escrow for next year and you guys going from a transaction through two hundred eighty thousand two point one million in production this year literally that gives me chills leg bread so cool because you can be so discouraged. Your first year. I watched as new agents all the time. Just keep it you know. And i just think that's so cool. Why am to seventeen knots. Insane and the other thing. I love that you talk about is. You're just like swimming with fish. And i can make history in my head because they're so much when you get into real estate like there really is into those groups of people that can kind of like guide you that you can actually while with is so essential because otherwise like it's all up to you you know. Normally what do you attribute like. What did annmarie do what. What do you attribute like one. Is everything yeah. So injury is awesome. I'm she pulled me into her family once. I showed her that i would work. As hard as she worked She allowed me to a true mentor. As i had that teacher mindset. Show me what to do. And i will do it do it together it myself. So at the beginning we run phone calls together if she was talking to clients. I was on the phone with her if she was calling. A listing agent is on the and she would introduce me sometimes she would allow you the talking for her for her clients which is really cool because those conversations in that verbiage you you don't know until you are actually in the transactions and so we quarter one our mentor ship. We locked down all of the transactions that we had agreed on. I did it. Because i said okay. She had me jackson. Ms fear huge group of people and did that she had me go to. We did open houses together. I had a client me wanting to lose their house. I said hey. I don't know what i'm doing so she went with me. She debt realistic presentation. I took notes. Because that's just how. I know i'll learn that way. I sat back and let her handle it. And then the second listing i had in our mentor ship agreement. I did it and as soon as we walked out of that door. I said okay. What what do i need to improve. Give me that criticism. Because that that's how i learn. And the i knew that's how i will be better. She's awesome. yes. And i men you cafe because you show such a level of coach ability and humility to be able to say i know what i need. You know you kinda think yourself will die. I knew i need to learn but some people come into real estate and they think they know it all and while they're trying to forge their own way when you can surround yourself with amazing people an experience what you did often seek people that get into real estate Just sit back. Wait for everybody to go in. Like ask them what they're doing. It's not like that. Like you have to be alike proactive with going and taking advantage of the resources that you are able to and you did that you know. Sometimes it takes a little while. But you've got it and then you know. We are mildly angry. Because marie is awesome. And i can like you're talking about her. Cnn like yeah she is. she's a great mentor is. I'm so glad that is got worked out. Loved the way she doesn't put up with any bullshit. Jay is no nonsense. And i love that about her that she's very forward to tell you and i value that because then if you're new and you don't. I did that for a year. You earn nine months last year. I didn't know doing all denison talks now denote instead then to get aligned with her and then she always says. I want to be this person when i grow up. You know as realistic. I wanna be regional crowd. I wanna be gruber all these different people and it's like the amendment that might be in re when i grow up amid all those different people. It's been really cool. Yeah so important. Like i always need to have somebody. I'm looking up to like i. I have like four people manhattan right now and i feel like that's so healthy to have you know one of the best things kristen ever said to me. And she's set a lot of great things i love being at. Yes p for the last five years. I've learned all i can from you to now. I need more so a to see then chase it. 'cause it's out there you'll take advantage of that fully. I love it so head to head is gonna face. Tell us about like your family dynamic. I know like your home a lot with your kids. So i'm a lot of moms are in that situation where they feel like they can't go in worker. Serve their own businesses. they are hall. They have little kids at home to tell her that. Looks like for you sheriff. So i had two boys a four and a half year old on the three and they the most energetic little bunch. I've ever met my wife and i am so concealed being with immense amount so real estate has been awesome. Because i can prioritize being a mom. And then i can also relocate by at being agent in so for me. I have had to build a cadillac. Like a little box babysitters that will be there for me in an incident. I have one girl who enemy up. My husband works in a career where he's not homeowner time in so honestly it's me when i had clients reaching actually mike wine to see houses in a couple of hours or making appointments for the weekend it's me it's meyer south ability to make sure the kids in good hands and of course i wanted to be home so it's important to me to find find most people that will ear cups things that i deal with the boys when i'm got. They know they own mama's going to sell houses they end include them as much as possible like listings. If we need to put signs out our fox's they love it putting together gift baskets my at the end they go with me. We go to studio two to three we find our items. They helped me they love. Love love to bring those gifts the clients at the end. I often tell people it's totally a family business for me because that has to include my kids and it's really a non-negotiable sometimes they're going to be there but i do. I really work to to utilize babysitters that i have. One on her. Mom's lender in the business. She gets it. If i need someone in thirty minutes to hoping thirty minutes i have some others. That for a longer appointments on weekends can be here all day long kids in so it really being a mom started her business a young mom. I should say with young. Kids is not for the week late nights early morning. Snow sleep a lot a lot of hustle. But i wouldn't change it. I'm here with my kids. And i'm building a business for me in for our future. So it's really cool hardware really cool related questions yet in my head what you had to have with one transaction and then seventeen right. That's such a big difference. Tell me one like thing you did with the money that you are excited about well. Okay so remember flashback. I said that we decided to sell our house and then buying one right before a real estate so we knew we wanted to be in our next on germ and we wanted to find something that had the bones The foundation to so found a house perfect area needed a lot more. It was really really cool with mike missions zero two you start narrowing the inside like this behind me. Used to like one of those nineties. An eye toward our ship-locks. Like i took the money i earned in sweat equity that that was really fun. I love projects. That's been awesome. That is so fulfilling. His you think like i know that. That's one of my favorite stories about the beginning of my husband. My success in real estate is we wanted to do a whole remodel. And we're gonna take a year and a half or something like that to get enough money and we did it in like four or five months an awesome. It's so great and like there's still thinks that you to going from one to seventeen like neon. Should i really do all this at once. Probably empha- still things that we need to update and change in may get. I mean it wouldn't be possible the hustle in this year. It just wouldn't it was at. It's such i have you when you said that i kinda wanted to touch upon like let's say somebody is at home and home in their starting real estate business and they can't afford a babysitter. Were you ever in that spot where you could have. Somebody come over and help he. I mean you. You are asking them like if they're available sometimes not so might get some with me. Is it something that i love recommend. No but it must situations you have to literally have to act to do one morning. I remember a client wanted to sign seventy title. He was he needed to early. And thank goodness. I had built such a great connection with the title company. And the for officers. 'cause i the night before i have to bring my kids with me. I'll have of the snacks. They'll have their tablets because that's another thing. Tablets have been licey with fungus enemy. We are not like sit in front of the screen on the type of family. But when i need to make a phone call therefore into will three. Now it's like we're gonna be quiet. All the astronauts are like. I have to bring them with me. So i get there the next morning. Six twenty five. She has little snacks. Lamb she had them all cozy ending end. The they went a sat there. Listen to a respectful. Mike lynch signing. I've had to bring them with me to showings in. The nice thing about showings is there. I'm really big on showing my kids. How hard i work. So it's help me find. The locksmith locks. The finish helped me the letters on the set on listings. Nine will read. The letter is look at the numbers like a learning piece. You but it's also again Teaching manners teaching behaviors with other people that they don't know so. I yeah. babysitters are always news. You have to do at the beginning. I could not afford a babysitter said david. Who's now twenty one. I can't even believe that he went. He went everywhere with me. He was one and he always good orange. A major tantrums. Thinking like know three and four. Let's go to light to in three. How will they were caught. Two boys like oh my gosh. Yeah and sometimes get higher and in lake you guys. What or just like silent iphone where they know like east mom like need. Is your training at the child. Nuts you don't. They have their moments in their wonderful. But it had. That's for sure. I want the i the first time. I took him to daycare. He got kicked out right away because he headbutted some kid. He's the nicest young man now but he was a kit at all is a little shit. They have micro be amazing like david. You're didn't go out to eat for two years because matthew was such an awful kid in a on doing this anymore missy. Eat nine outside with the kids and that's something to speak to. You is the pandemic the year. I have the kids trade for stores like behaviors for restaurants all of it and in march hits in. We can't do anything in so there wasn't those moments where they had been around other adults so the municipal they're like nine and then keep his you're having to reaching them back up but also let them be so excited to see a person again. Yeah for sure. What are we live in. Why will tell you that. I love your example of a hustle. Because mike foale i can always been this way but even more so now. I just disgusted by weenies. Make excuses. Who don't think that they can do something because they have kids or whatever their excuses and so you are the perfect guest four light knees or love it. I am familiar with new graham yet. I'm an eight and like a true challenge. Like if i hear those. Excuse me like you're saying it's like hold on. There is a way you're just not allowing yourself to work for that instead. Yeah if i had thirty minutes students thirty minute workout. I'm gonna fit it in it's like you have to get your name in that mindset of what can i often Or like you talk about like people. They want the outcome but they don't want the process and their outcomes in in it's like no. There's a process to get there. I remind myself. I have lots of self talk when i'm like. I don't feel like doing this. I go yes i do. You know why. I like doing this. Because i want. What's the other side of it. That i so. I do feel like doing this. Even if i can't get it to agree with my head to something you said. I want once on the other side so back when you guys decided the tapeworm relations to xp you know we had that choice as agents to go with you guys or go our own way in in that time. That is so crucial for me. Because i was already starting to see the fruits of aligning yourself was powerful people. I was not the smartest person in the room. I absolutely the dumbest person in the room. When you talk about granite state. But i knew if i trusted i see what's on the other side in so i went. I n now like you. Think of who i land myself back then went now. It's even bigger. You know you have to you. Do have to think okay. I'm going to take the chance. So whilst said i love you well more idea how important that is it is beyond you. Should everybody should make their first priority to love the lord. Jesus christ and then go find people who will positively affect you in the way you want to be affected right now. Well thank you so much. I know for a back. They're going to be people watching you saying. I wanna grow up when i grow up. I wanna be cassie heads. I love that. I so much to learn lake. I meant that weird stage can insert helping newer agents in to joe them in the ropes. That was i also have people that can teach you way more than i know. And so it's being humble is a huge thing in this industry. It's like there's so much visiting around accidentally learn something from everyone while andrey slotting right now. She is a proud mama research that is. I can't thank you enough for taking the time to share your experience with us and to be really transparent about everything that's going on that you talk about today. I'm really grateful. Thank you so much it really did mean so much to me when you reached out and asked him like wait a year has nobody lying. Aligning yourself with people in trusting in connected is just. I appreciate you guys of so much. Mike appreciate you. Same or sure adult go. I'm gonna get off the broadcast. Thank you guys for watching but dhahaf thank you guys for watching and stay tuned.

We've got you covered the latest update the hottest matches news on the league's top players. It's the golden state media concept soccer. Podcasts listen now. Welcome to the mc but guess brought to you by the s mc podcast network. I am your host i. Naw mika we are going to talk about the recent games that you know have happened during the european german Twenty twenty one as you guys know in recent podcast we talk about the specific groups that team story that Our our plane right now for to try to win the european termine war since the last part cars that i talk about the teams many many games are happen so we are gonna talk about them. 'cause i think some of the games are really really interesting and Soaking to for example. let's talk about the game that happened to this ago on e. was Denmark bursts who's Belgium was ruined since game. Because as you guys my no Denmark lost a player For a heart disease or a heart problem in the first game of the tournament on you know he had to be transported to the hospital on sadly he probably would not be able to play soccer again which is really sad on something that we do. Not wish to anyone at all Any soccer player eight something terrible to happen on such a young age so maybe we can see complete again. Maybe not I don't have the specific of chris condition and i do not wanna took up something that i'm not certain about but i hope to see him again Play so crazy you know. It's safe absolutely so. Let's talk about the game. Let's try to analyze a little bit. It was actually a bring dense game because denmark is started winning like denmark brazil. I want to score a goal for the people who might not know why these is shocking for me. It's shocking because belgium. It's during a team in the tournament. Right now Only was doing amazing. The tournament on. It's one of the favorites to win the european termine of twenty one so being you know denmark scoring first worse not only surprising because belgium has an amazing difference and goalkeeper courtois. You know donahue there is he blaze for real madrid. and here's one of physical keep yourself The war right now. we'll say so So it was really shocking to see new belgium not being able to stop denmark for me. Demar shocking bart. It was de goal. Came in the minute and for you. One mentioned to the game like it's being seems. The referee the game he had been amended at for one says seconds when denmark scored ical there. He has to be one of the fastest goals in history in at leasing european tournament. That doesn't happen often. Naked juice I will say that. Usually players or teams. In this case are a score between the minute wyndham in seventeen twenty minute. It's been by. You would think they okay. It's now it's when they can like they are more likely to score a goal in a minute and forty one seconds. No not even close. That is nothing that comes to anyone's mind fraud when they think of a goal so it was really surprising it took apps bells. You probably by surprise because obviously they will not expecting to us by done by releasing so quickly like like liz. Listen two minutes. Being having the other team score i is always tough on. It's always something that not many teams like because for obvious reasons. You have to score a try to tidy much or if you want to win you have to score more goals. When you're losing your mind. It's more like this. If i don't wanna lose but if you're when you're winning it's more about to defend my like defense area. I need to defend my team. So the other would not score on. Would they tied the game. It's always easier to be a winning. Obviously that the seager a like everyone nights winning single person that doesn't like winning So it's even in soccer is a really. It's really intense when the players are like winning and then something happened on. They lose or the game skied on each flex time from the beginning. That is something beautiful about soccer. Is like when a team diced the score. The game like it's you know it's being for five minutes denmark I dunno exactly the times like this. For another example and then it's continue talking about democrats so for teams gore's intimately five. The other team has to score today the game and if these days score let's say before the halftime time before the forty five minutes then when you start the other half of the matz. It's like star in syria. Two years like starting all over again is the nurse the near the same energy density the same passion to score to one to win the game. That is something so Odd saga say. Because when you tie game it just like it's like a restart button is like we need to resolve this again. We need to wean again. We need to score oregon. So it's something that goes for example when basketball for example. Sure you can die a game but it's always like is not like restoring old over like you keep going and then you're a basketball is different. It's different because you You you're going to score points either way like way. More often than goals happenings in soccer It's really hard if you have a defense like a great defense even if you have a great offense. It's really really hard to score a goal in the minute team. Dan of the denmark procedures belgium game. The players stopped playing for tristar clapping because the player from denmark that had to be arrested. Hospital was number ten so it was really beautiful gesture so we know we very much. We'll see we're gonna see allowed into their respect that it's there From both teams at the end of the day. It just beautiful. Even like the referees on the whole stadium. The fans were all clapping on. You know being respectful. That's something that i think. Fans in soccer rooted of being respectful for something like a try like something bad happened to the other team. It's a way of being respectful to clap on cheer or support the other team. I will say it's something really pretty on something that i think we've seen soaker more than in other other sports too that it's good. I believe they clap for a minute. And do one thing that it's different. I would say from other matzos over the games. Is the emotion on the players is like you receive how important these player was them and commerce. They miss human. How much security him. I don't know how to say this without sounding. maybe. I don't know i think So when the accident happened on when the player was on the floor he was unconscious and he was in any nike They had to do cpr right there. On the pete's does how bad the situation was a nice thing. And i don't want to say that not supposed to but i think some of the tv networks that kept filming and did not the game like the day kept showing what was happening. I think that was unethical either. Something that was the right thing to do because dude just debts. No one wants to see that like no one wants to see Blais you're being on the floor not knowing what's going on and salween getting the players. Cpr like yours does not morally correct for me. I think that they should have got the game or like do something or put another game on. Tried to do something different. Showing that i do nothing. That was the right decision but again. I'm not judging anything. I'm just giving my opinion. And i personally i personally would have never thought that. I think there is another things that they could have done instead of sewing. Deployer on the floor and one thing that the players from both sizes realized that that was going on and the media were still filming and they had to survive like they souverain. The player on the medics were on the fielder. Like on the pitch. They're trying to help the player to still the cameras for for filming. That like does not okay like not only had to deal like they placed from the same team with their team may being on the floor realistic but they had to stand next to him so the cameras not film him like how is that correct. How is that. If like i would have. I'm gonna ask this question tonight. What you guessed to. Broadly like dell assing twitter facebook or any of our social media. Would you guys think like. Do you guys think this is the right thing to do. You guys think the media has the right to show. What's going on on. Do you guys think that there's something that the media needs to step back on. Give some privacy. So i'm just gonna ask that on if you guys feel you guys can answer that or you want to answer that please. You know tweet us. Follow us facebook twitter and let us know what you guys think of that. And what you guys. Think of the game on players. Reaction coaches reaction or referees man also decisions reactions so go back to the volume denmark game in the mid thirty four denmark. Denmark had clear opportunity to score again an e number fourteen. The one that was A g. was trying to score for denmark. And i think you are so sad to what his reaction because he really thought that go. The boy was going to go anywhere. Says such great effort for you know. He like sharon by like at least three four belgium players and he still shot the ball and tried to score. Which is that winter happens. You know that the player issue in everything again to score in a minute. Forty three almost forty four volume tied the game and it was number sixteen hustler an excuse me for the correctly. The one that Score the goal on. He was really really respectful about celebrating. And he i believe he did like a hand sign or like Looking at the camera to maybe The player from denmark So one thing that. I love about these goal. It's the there is like Three players in both on you know Lukaku is the one that starts running on. Dna you know. He passed the ball and then The other also pass the ball to denver fourteen and then he is able to score such a clincal beautiful goal super respectful because they didn't like go crazy and they didn't celebrate matz. Which sometimes that you appreciate some of that respect so For four fifty four. Excuse me the game was tight. it was. you know. let's star game like they tied again They have to restart in five minutes not ten minutes after starting the hard time when you score a little bit after the Steroid you steal halftime to tie the game you steal halftime to start over on tried to win for your which it's really belgium. Second goal game in mid in the mid sixty nine almost seventy any was number seven. The verein diversion The one that score beautiful goal super clean. It was a hard goal. Honestly like there was like Four players seem. Both there was like some like sherpas on dan. A number sixteen possible to number seven on. He shot the bow from actually pretty far from the area they goalkeeper area on is Gaming Going minute Seven sixty nine hundred and Amazing clincal nothing to say about that. I think belgium. I will say that. Belgium woke up in the second. Half i think day started again they They knew they hot to win to return in this group In this state of the day you need to win to qualify for the next one. I think when they when denmark score i they like a wake up goal was on. They didn't actually woke up until after the second half which is kind of surprising for its own not sets a great team as welcome. I honestly when denmark score Two minutes into the game. I was shop first of all. I was not expecting belgium's defence to be so unaware of that of denmark. Like you know they definitely should have. They should have been way more aware of what was going on. And why Days need to pay attention because obviously identity was such a good rival and you could tell the whole game. Mid eighty six denmark cod. I such a huge opportunity to die game again to the two but dame me's by a little bit unable win over the net so obviously you. They were not able to a game. I think he would have been nice tie for denmark. They definitely deserve this. This is the second laws. If i'm not mistaken. That means that they have no chance off Brewery not tens of game to the next wrong which is really sad after what happened by the game. So it's a game on a week until that. Sometimes she lose. Sometimes you lean but it's always fun to play. I think they're way both players of off me. Belgium celebrate tickle super. Respectfully i shows comrades Soaker is united in these kind of situations an helmets. Even if you are maybe you have never had any contact with the player that when had to go to the hospital. Maybe you never talked to him. Talk to him. Or maybe you've never met him. But you are there when they carbons with the accident. Hopkins you showing that respect Issues crazy unformed team. That was not blamed denmark when it happened so we kind of respect so comets they care how much like being in so. It's just something not that. Har as something that i believe like most of the briefs are like i believe when something like that happens like a player has to he really really bad in your and he has hot food to be transported to hospital is seen so many players being respectful life from opposite teams like buss real madrid. For example. Going back to the basic for me i seen players form realm. I remember i. If i'm not mistaken. I think it was e- school maybe He got in your during that game and his leg was like he couldn't walk and he had to re stretched Hospital he had too hot You're like a big surgery and everything on boasting like would really respectful awhile. They stop taking for like ten to fifteen minutes. If i'm not mistaken until he was out of the game on everyone sent them like you know Message on social media or leaning person but everyone was respectful on the field like things like this happens on like days being accidents. Were you like i remember. I don't remember the teams. Don't remember the names of the great. I remember what it like on youtube. Video of like the goalkeeper started running and jump to graft ball but he he di player from the opposite team on the chest. We've he's me and the other felling to the ground unconscious and the team like the one of the from opposite team. Run to help him so he wouldn't have any trouble with like try to help him recover. Recover or it was shuts dodds moment. Because you stop thinking about the competition on you think about you know. We're all human and we don't wanna see anyone get likes to offer. So i think that is something really beautiful soccer that you know that you can see the game in this game. Volume buzzers denmark's. We're really. i'm really set. The denmark lowered by thing. The game they play they have to feel super proud of it. They the incredible job at defense on an offense. They tried on the tribe belgium which just outstanding. I think they needed that. Wake goal to realize that this is real competition and they have to work hard for it but overall saturday's game Be great great effort from both teams so We just want to say congratulations to both of them on that. It's it's been such a pleasure watching them play embiid respectful.

We were talking about the game duchess copying today's are the june nine thousand eight now happen on thursday if i'm not mistaken about belgium versus denmark and we talk about how denmark star winning the game the score really early into the game like under two minutes and then belgium was able to recover and they you came back on they won. They won the game. Two to one was great game for both sizes like both teams did an incredible job. A defense and offense honest it was just a great game overall to be honest Now s. promise we are gonna talk about are really excited game. Actually we are gonna talk about england. Bursts who scott land for some of you may be donald these but england and scotland have been rivals for many. Many years seems eight. Eighteen seventy two which is actually really easy. There is like our story behind it on the england. Scotland soccer rivalry between the england. Scotland national soccer teams is the authors international fixture. In the world i differs game was played in apia. Sixty seventy two at hamilton. Christon blasco is godless nationally. Some has been affected in. Scots decided to defeat england of all other rivals with discarded sports journalist originally referring to the english as the old enemy. The bribery has dismissed somewhat. Seems delay nineteen seventies particular reasons annual fixtures fixtures. Stoop stopped in eighty nine nine hundred eighty nine. For england games against germany energy dina are now considered to be more important than the history drewery with scotland which is really sad to think about that. England does not consider scotland us magistrate off fireable as he used to. Because it's a really great rivalry. I think in soccer so let's do like a backer early years. Their rules of association silken had been formalized answer down by these soaker association in england was set up in eighteen. Sixty three sixty three by eighty seventy. Cw alcock signatory of the soccer association issue public challenges in various newspapers in. Glue the glass of curl to a scottish players to play an international match against england. Gonna a few public responses that alcock received were from scotland. State b- boris. The association. Rules will not would not be a game because us ghozlan. That's nothing that guard is worth it as a was burning. What they said you know in the eighteen seventies in the dust. What the respond for off the newspaper that the british the england The first mats were described in the glasgow carol as degrade international soccer mats and there was a substance by the same newspaper in eighteen. Sixty s. seventy one that both captains have been successfully in the composition of eleven eleven capable and if recently representing they're respecting teams which do not just gracie on this grid So the most of the competitions were friendly differs five. Were friendly on the difference might be was tied one one. The second mud's england won the there was also that he was one to one in the fourth. One friendly wise ridiculous took in friendly games england born on the fifth one also inland. Want which you know makes you think you know that england. It's better than blend which not every time it's through In one thousand nine hundred eighty eight nine hundred twenty eight sculling dean which defeated england. Five one at wembley was nicknamed the believe wishers the mites as unusual background england and scotland were the traditional domain countries in the british com championship. Yet neither side had managed to be either ireland or rails in their first two game or year kit championship so in one thousand nine hundred twenty. Eight scotland defeated england fighter one. I'm dan pay attention to this. Is nine hundred. sixty one. England phillips colon ninety three ninety three england was able to skirt nine goals and then a negative and sixty seven. These are like official games Scotland one-two-three three and then in nineteen seventy seven scotland. Also one so if you think about it When the game was friendly until ninety ninety six scotland had more winsome england in ninety nine hundred ninety six in the european championship. England defeated scotland two zero in the two thousand european championship playoffs. England worn a ninety nine england. One two zero on in scotland beat england. A couple of days later want to see her woods. Overall was english victory again. Justin for fourteen friendly games. England when the i did both in both won both into thirteen and fourteen. So he makes you thing like england. Doesn't it only takes seriously. The friendliest woods cannot be farther from the truth. But it looks like if you look at the history does it is in the tillerson. Dean world cup qualification. England beat scotland in the first game on in the in this sixteen to seventeen which is another came to qualify for the world cup scotland and england tight it was two and then in the in the most recent one has just happened. So we are gonna analyze. Dad broody intense game if you ask me like if you like if you look at the history of both countries that there's like at rivalry that i would think i know i would like to healthy rivalry. It's like I don't know what other rivalries sarah but i like because they are that close together. It makes sense that they had a robbery for many many years like italian spain even if they're not as close they have always had because 'cause they had to play each other for many many games and emit different occasions so at the end. If you play at in for our regular basis you bill bribery and a friendship. But the team will say. I like to think that these teams get along with each other. Even when you're they're playing soccer you'll have to leave your friends outside of the pitch but you know once the game is done that you're able to your maybe some of your teams lay. You never know once you. You're good at blake as your own teammates during the regular teams. Or if you're gonna you know you're gonna make new friends or like me. You know maybe people issues. I think like i would like to soak React healthiest for for that okay. So let's analyze the game. Remember when i tell you that belgium sorry denmark is score really really soon to the game's only two minutes was golden. Had an amazing opportunity the minute four of the game. Yeah believe it or not. Scotland almost a score in four minutes into the game. number Excuse me number. Two was not an amazing amazing precision. Do think that he was. You know he was in a wrong position but his legs are for are not as far as his body. So he actually. It's in the correct position. And he is able to get the ball and run and then he passed the ball and You know the oil player tries to score but obviously it's not devolve goes to the other side. It's not would score minute. Eleven it's when indian first star. Starts you know waking up. i will say on. They are almost able to score a goal. He was a corner. Full were in means that the player has to go to a corner. Tries to one of the players of the team tries to shoot the ball and score. And that's what england tried to do on the baldwin perfectly in one of the england players head and he was able to hit the ball with He's kid bad they bowl he the corner of the Goalkeeper ned On the post like the you know the net of undego the world didn't go inside one thing that i will say about this game that he was evil straightening i don't know how place So case key plane so good in the rain like either hardly not freezing. That's like something density minute. Twenty eight england again had another ray. Great opportunity came Was able to heat the ball number eight. If i'm not mistaken was able to run. And then one of these teams so keen on Throw the boat from really distance against running on. He'd double with his head again by the board. Even go inside again. Something that is fairly common in soccer. Like you think you're doing good but you danger not minute theory. It's one scotland was on was almost into there was able school to score again. Great you know. The goalkeeper english goalkeeper was there. He was at the end of the game and he made a one of the greatest safe during the game. Which was it's crazy like. Are one thing that i would say over this game. Is that it saying that. Many many players are using their heads to hit the ball. Which you know if you think about it like you don't really wanna do that. But it's just good guys duke and see like both teams are really into the game. I'm one to score so bad. So when they went to halftime the score was die. Series two zero and in the minute forty. Seven england started attacking and they were able to get close to scotland goalkeeper and they created an amazing creative play but they goalkeeper stop. Both of biggles. Like both win out and you begin. eat proves that both goalkeepers were so into the game. 'cause they were even like the players goes you can see how they are not they would not getting lack anything. Bosnian like in both sizes. Like difference was amazing. I think england was talking more than a scotland. It was it was I seen a at least after the halftime time. Because england had people more they had position of the way. More than Scott hi love. What seemed the fans because they are addressed. They were dressing like if they were in like eighteen sixties. And they are like you're the the armor everything. So i honestly really what's in england's fans 'cause they are actually really funny so if you guys ever had the chance of what in one of these games please pay attention to the fans goes. You will find decrease hist funniest people up there. That's why we love soccer because fans are at one hundred percent and with their players and you minute. Sixty england had another great opportunity but scholars defense was like absolutely not. We are not letting you pass these woods. Prove that obviously scotland was not Did not want Give game to england. They wanted to Keep fighting. I think after the minute. Fifty six sixty seven. Scotland kind of like woke up and they story like tekken again and stop focusing on defense and starring Started offensively like waking up pretty much like they were like you know we wanna win this so we want to do these. We have to attack. We have drake score because he we focus only on defense snug work. Mech sixty one. There was a corner. A full from corner that if In favor of scotland and it was one display actually so how much the players pay attention to the ball because they goalkeeper was going to the left on d play pay from scotland solbes and he hit his head trying to school core into their right of the net but the the player from england that so that and he does civil with his head and it like far from the go deeper area from the net. Which you know. It's really hard to as a player to stop a ball with your head because like you guys probably know Players are not allowed to touch the ball with their hands or any bar of the oppor- like their hand solder arms. A gun of that. They were to with their legs. Obviously faith food them their head but they are not able to the bubble with their hands or arms. Which for me that actually dot play like. I don't know how badly did not break. He's faced with his art with his hands. If so one heats a ball or throw civil to might face like he the ball with hit. It's not my first option. My i often is covering a face but apparently soccer players do not get out that a neg- disproves come matz. England wanted to win this game. And how much they were giving you know they were giving a hundred ten percent on. Its on the same thing for england like number twenty four for england. Like congratulations because you save england in the mid sixty one for a clear clear goal i love to see the goats his reactions to our missing goals or like penalties. That are false are not cool there the funniest thing ever 'cause you know. They put their hands on their heads. And i started screaming the game. No they have to be professional but at the same wtn on. That's my team. Like i wanna five for them and this was like both. Goethe's where like stemming up. They were not. They were not covering themselves from the rain. They were like into the game as much as players. Weeds loving it minute. Seventy seven adams number ten from scotland also had a great great opportunity but he threw the two high on super super far from the net. Like i guess he was not a ready. Or as in the right position issue and wayne Outside in it and he was not able to keep the net and that's called the end. The game ended in We that tie like no not even wanting was able to score. Which if you think about it it proves how both teams wanted to stop the other team. Like scotland defense was amazing like they did not let england by one like it was just i mean it seemed like they were like running up and down. You could see them attacking or like beaming the defense And the same thing for england like they were protecting their next to the goalkeeper trying to protect him from goal on our point that do not like they used face to to jump sent a bolt turn on the other side so the go go inside and ahead which we know that england and scotland hot hot hot history. They have been because not only like they have been rivals in historic throughout history but also in circus history. Which leads if you stop and think about it. Like england was kind of the first country to start playing soccer and about moment period them. They didn't off any rules. And they didn't have Referees or anything like that. The fact that a scotland to dad from england not only proves how close both countries are but it also proves like how competitive they are how they don't want to lead the other team win. These are result for the game. Boy it's not helpful for any of the teams because obviously they needed to points to make sure that they go into the next round which you're not the end of the day like i'm sure they will. Both scotland and england will go into the next rav. I think england. It's one of the favorites to win the european tournament at this point. I hope that they are able to. I will love to see. Another game is in england because they are in dance they are. You know the fans like crazy. We love the healthy competition. So maybe Maybe they are able to play a game winning this tournament on. maybe not. We'll see but these game was outstanding for both sides on beacon regulations to both teams because they did a great job of defense on. It was said that. Do no no golden goose megan the game but at the end of the game at the end of the day. If you do a great job both the both teams do a great deal but difference. It's hard to score okay. Knicks Segment we are going to talk about a game. The happened on june nineteenth.

Smc it but gasping for the commercial. We talk about some of the recent games in the first segment. We talk about bellchambers denmark. And how even if their mind denmark score. I almost like two minutes into the game Belgium was able to not only tie but to win the game because they were able to score two goals on you know giving them the victory over that and we also talked about england added scotland. We talk a little bit about their past. History history unholiday will they had been. They had rivalry for many many years and decades. On how in these european gentlemen gentlemen we could see how passion they were for Hop into the game. How much effort they put into the game and even if the result was tie both teams were incredible and they invade gave it all and that's only cars. I mean i know for a lot of people you know. What's either team wean on. Not having a goal soon the game sox but for someone like me. The likes football. Sorry excuse me So that appreciates replay on lies towards any game. It's really it's really really nice towards both teams competing against each other and giving middle pretty much Now we are gonna talk about ashley s specific group because we are gonna talk about two games that happen on june nineteenth and the first one eighths france versus bungary on the second. One is for two colbert's year many if you guys don't remember these friends and germany blade last week I don't know stuck. I believe he will choose or wednesday wednesday. Actually wish wednesday. I think it was wednesday. And then monday maybe monday. It was some Some the last week. Sorry guys Undreamt skews. Me friends was able to be germany. Because you're many headbutt log on newsdays score goal in their own net by accident on obviously south for the players by good for france. Kurt they were able to get victory. That means two points these. The group of germany and france is also composed of kingery and portugal portugal. Germany france are pretty much favorites right now in what. They are in the favorites to win the tournament. So knowing that maybe one of those teams is critical. Home it's it's bre shocking but you don't sometimes things happen like this and you just have to enjoy what they play. So i agree. I going to start saying that. These should have been an easy game for france. It should've should've been a clear. Sc victory but guess what it did not happen tied. The game was one to one. Thirteen friends had clear clear. Opportunity they were. I think two players against the goalkeeper and it was. It's sort of an easy goal. But they were not able to understand each other or something happened that you know. I guess you could say to on day. They drive three times and the none of the trees. The boat went into the net. So i the day b goalkeeper for was able to a dible an stuff. They blame minute sixteen Was one friends like an mba. If i'm not mistaken was able to hit the ball with his head and died ball. It was so in the right direction but at the end like it did not go in to into the left into the goalkeeper area on It was out so that was one of the first mosque lose opportunity to score but was unable to do it which is shocking for a team. Ask france because they're coming from lean war cup champions which you know you're supposed to be amazing it Another so clear moment minute. Thirty bentham Vincent apple is by the review. Guys don't know what he's amazing. He's a great great great lear- c. balestre running on The players so him unpardonable to him but he was covered by the two players so he was able to push the ball to bentham our annual spending my against the goalkeeper. But you know my even should dry. I guess a goal. The ball was not even close to You know inside the net so it's just a whole lot of things that you can in the first half at least like you could see how france was interro control the game like they had amazing players on amazing place and you would of thing that they were score. Thirty two to three to obey gain like he easter on. He tries to corey kim. But the bolger's doesn't go een which is crazy because does that lack like you think like. Oh my god. How is that even possible. Like they're trying so hard on the bala just nod getting evil dish. Things happening soaker like it was clear. The friends hot turkey like if you throughout the entire game. Say like a bowl. They were more in the area of like hungary's goalkeeper that in france goalkeeper area which makes sense is just keep trying and trying and trying on you know they were not able to score which it's crazy during the first time a different version five minutes. The referee added five more minutes with its own likely. Sometimes i didn't no. I thought at four five minute you know. They were going to score on dice with hungry score. The first goal in the mid four six hungary was to not day took the vote for france and they were able to score. Which makes this never never fi for angry score and what i like how this is the way they celebrated goes. The beleaguered ran into Run outside the peace brew undefeated on hebron to be in front of their fans on uncertain. Accelerating with them screaming and you know the friends. I love the react to the player you know. Seen them. it's goma girls they He's realizing that we're here for the memorial team for the on when the score and they acknowledged you And the pretty gets close to you on table celebrate. It's a. i think it's a really great philly. i have never experienced it. Obviously in bed seen The fan's faces. It's worth it. I would say something unexpected and something really great minute. Fifty friends. Strike in the digress. Your thing it's like the hungary again not again. But like they started the scoring like they started score. First days so unlikely. That is something that i have never in mind when you think of the group that hungary friends are yours using. They're pretty much out because there is no way they're gonna win against some of the biggest teams like in this league is us chrissy. Mid fifty eight was probably the clearest opportunity for friends like the way they play that you could see like they wanted to score like again. They had the position of the ball like pretty much all of time. But like the goalkeeper for hungary was really do the game as well like he was really active as an here. Stop the for going inside It just during the game. You weren't hungry did not have as many opportunities to score us for instance it and again it. Just not not like it is you. These could be bad luck for friends like they were only able to score guam goal because we not score on. The game was tied but Minute sixty five. It's when france tied the game. Grysman bid on it was actually display star with the goalkeeper because he was able to stop a full in favor of hungary and he throw the ball so far that they were like the team was the french player was able to get. It invited them. He got the bowl he was already evening. Hungary goalkeeper area meaning that congress did not have enough time to run back and stop the blair or even like the plate so there was only like four hungary players on it was just greece. Mond had the ball on a die close. It was just perfect. I think that proves that friends. The did really one day sunday. Try so so so sohar. It took them sixty six minutes to score. Sixty four sixty six sure but at the end they score on some of the goals they should like they They were coming back bud lager but they i guess but every player was giving a hundred percent for both teams are need proves how great it is Towards both of these teams play at the end the game. It can end up being a tie on these proof that the group. It's as close as ever because yemeni has one lost on one weaned. you'll has one win and one. Last friends cost one win. One tie and hungary has died and one last so maybe thinks can change one of the games that i was really really really excited to see. What germany Chris general deal he actually was doing really good throughout the whole the other games like he. It anew ricker christiane neither those sets a new record at the european twenty one hundred twenty twenty tournament is he said a new mass left and right at big european german and he has his sights set on another mayor. Milestone after scoring two goals in portugal's tournament opening three zero win over hungary. I'm saying that record for most goals in the us history thirty six year old scored his first ever international goal against germany in the group states game and much another. All denmark processed christina notably secre player like. There's just no doubt about that but today like during during the game vs germany. It was like he was just not there like i barely his score a goal through by like you cannot. You cannot win a by yourself. And thus i think that something. That protocol is missing. It's maybe more teammates being there. Instead of focusing only under nine folks in the whole team yemeni was able to scoring the off into like four minutes early. Like some of the games. Like some of the goals as you so so soon into the tournament on the portugal's players were asking. Were telling the referee that the goal into because they are play. He'd double with his arm which is not allow an their free hot too. Obviously doubled shaky was in are in the right position. I honestly think there was no hands on it. Oh actually yes number. Twenty two molar. He fell into the ground on the The bolger's keeping the arm and stood up and running again. Which you think like would you allow that. Would you not so. The referee cancel tickle because it was clear clear signed The goal an hin would related and if the player more would have never touched the ball with his arm You know the ago would have never happened so they cancelled the go on but it was from the beginning. Yemeni wars Having more professional football like they even to portugal. One thing that i would say is that they are really fast like they go up in down So fast Granado score in fourteen. I think he was. He drunk. Pushy should i think he was. Like the germany's defenders were not as as close as the keeper as the other new players. So i think they will should have not gone bad. They're afraid double check. I honestly it's really close. It's really close on because oh yeah no. Dodd goes of not gone on his league. I think both players were in the position. It's gone but again referee decision on. It was for i. He thought it was good. Good enough germany's goalkeeper eats. I may seem keys one. He's been there for many many years and he's one of the so Democracy in the way he played not heedless obstacles which is pretty crazy like he goes like johnson tries to cobra. Smuts asked the The he can't some issues. It's really really great. The way he he tries to stop the goals. 'cause he that he got so much and he does his best Germany's first goal came in three or four years. It was it was beautiful. It was actually a really junket actually score. It's like he had. He has really young face. If that makes any sense he scored. It was such a great great effort as a team and it was amazing show beautiful. I don't know if the goal at one of portugal's player accidentally he dabble with his leg at the go inside because there were so many players inside but overall it's a really great play In the minute So in the theory aid germany was Was winning lay days the goal woods gracie Through minsters colonel. After i one on it was sowing dense on the whole There were only in the right position like there was no wrong position on your wish sets great great great yemenis fourth goal game in the mid fifty s again Go from like deep play like number seven was able to score on erosion is is great. What's in germany play. I think it's great. Oh the coach has been there for many many years. He was actually the for the two thousand eight european champions that it was played at the semi finals. Replay cancer spain. If i'm not mistaken so you know you go. So he's been there for many many years prove that they are good my problem with portugal. I think they are amazing. They are up and down all the time. I but i think they're missing a little bit of communication. 'cause again minutes fifty nine. Germany was able to score again. It was four to one a new brassieres like it was just great. What germany play like. They were having fun on. Were like not really thinking about it. They were just like playing like they were in joining in during the game so much. That's what would make a good team like they were just like. I think they would really like to every time every blade try They replayed it dry mid sixty six portugal escora. A you know they were able to score shooter for but they had nothing to do. Because you're many hide really defense so again political star winning and then germany was able to score four goals on win the game. If you compare both teams. I think your mommy played more as a team than portugal. Meaning that i think Germany used more juices. More lakers not just focused on one. I think portugal different school. Of honestly i have coming goes european tournament. They particle the last european tournament. So they are actually active recent championships. If you think about it the way they played to the it was just my one of my favorite favorite moments of the game was when the game was done. Cristiano rather crushed which they both play for the plate for through madrid. Works play and chris currently in the related debacle hog on talk to each other and just like the rivalry which import on your of at the moment. You stop on your game stan. And now we are communicating and we are talking and i go see them like laughing smiling with pepe to the bills place relative played. Excuse me is used. Great is just great holiday They used were able to go after it was pretty bad loss but you know they decided you know it's okay. We are gonna be friends after these. Does something great mix game. No we're gonna talk about. Spain burst sewage polling. I have loved to say about this game. Still keep listening ultimate stopper for everything sports. The golden state media concepts or podcast. Should i say more from the nfl melby. The nba mma. It's all in here. The golden state media concepts sports podcast. Listen welcome back to the soccer put gas before the commercial we talk about some of the games that are happening right now. You'll be entertainment. We talk about denmark. Pursued belgium we talk about at scud limbers england and we talk about france surgury and how they They were tied and no respected because Like i said like francis coming from Been work champions so no one is them to dike is against hungary has never won a european tournament like naughty. Obviously not a work championship. So you know tying with hungry was not good for friends. I would say that translates did an amazing job. I've offensively offensively. Like the like. Their offense was pretty much are standing. But you know they were meeting that tiny little thing that will make them being able to score more goals because they were a decade absolutely more position of the ball. You know on the definitely try more than hungary because hungry. I think it's focusing more on all of defense focusing more on defense. They're in office after going to go with Mexicans because you know they are the were we need at point so they thought you know let's focus more on defense on you know we can guarantee us. Victory dining offense but france was able to score a brilliant goal on you. Don't ah dying to the game. We also told about their many versus practical on how he was forty. Two germany one year may be for to go in. And i would say it was a tense game. I think both teams played a may seem both teams. Were you know they were given one hundred percent out there like they were you like they wanted to win but Score i but they go deplete. That scored the first goal was in the wrong positions. Actually not my molar. Heat the ball with his arm so the goal and then he stood up because he was he phillies the ground and then when he was like in the ground the ball hit his arm and then stood up on it. Was he possible to play in the core coil of something like that but The obviously fickle couldn't got because the playboys today like the mueller touched the ball with. Can we use arm. Investors out and then portugal's core bree lingual vein germany score four goals an porticos. Carmelo one overall. I think he played better than to on. It's obvious in the results by I think both teams have maybe a chance of so france hungary reportable in. Germany are in the same group at the at the moment Jimmy has one last and one win. Portugal has one win loss on friends. 'cause when win on one die. I'm angry because when diane one dose meaning that if friends it's more friends he's probably gonna pass i in the group if everything goes okay Begun they warn against vertical. Doug is going to be absolutely brilliant. Our say it's gonna be super dense on water to what's so. If you guys are able to watch it. I would recommend it. And then germany hungary i would say the germany experience twain. So we'll see everything is there to be decided. Ucla so it's gonna be such an intense groped. what so. I'm actually really excited for him. Now we are not talk. Our bob spain Brochures pulling the game hopping on saturday. Nineteen on said tight. One to one of. I guess i could say that. I'm disappointed i would say hulk game life of It's not in spain but I'm use their weight. they play issues. I don't understand like there's something missing. And i'm gonna create criticize them as acs again. I guess because. I think bowlin the way they played on the way suite. Employees improves spanish. Doing something wrong lytvyn does that. It's ablaze for pollen. He play he was the best on the that on that game today. Like no i have no doubts about that. He has scored the goal pollens goal versus pain. He was in he was in office. He was running. He was was everywhere like he was unstoppable lead. She gave me like a heart attack five times because he thought he was going to score like he was the best player on that game. I have no doubts about that. And i i have no shame old saying i know. I'm like my team. spain From spain but today will do not wind game hop in like living. Boesky was the best player. No that's he was. He was at one hundred percent. He was greeted in place. He was using his skills. He was using like every time he touted the ball. He was creating a different place. He was connecting passes with between place. He was talking to his teammates. he was just. He wanted that way. Because one thing that i would say it's a polian. Lost in again. Pursues is lavar if i'm not mistaken. The other yet is nobody. Sweden poland and spain in group. Sweden and spain died and then student one against slovakia today on spain. Point tight on polin laws against slovakia. Meaning that if poland would've largest today's game saturday's us nineteen game it gins Spain they would have been out of the competition that's why i feel like living those keywords such Into the game because he said he was using all his skills he was. You know i mean he is just great. He scraped the everything like his teammate. He's great in his team's doing like regular season his great being with pollen and as usual does but that spain marotta was really was criticized critic guys they last in the shooting game because people were saying that he did not give a hundred he would of. He's on the present. He was not in the right place at the right time and he not help in any way i disagree with it that and i think i i disagree with it. I think blaming someone's Blaming everything on radha is because it's a teams work not a one place like we ought mata a place for offense much like he is suppose to score goals the fact that he score a goal against sweden does not mean daddy's all his fault and people need to realize that briskly immediate because you know the media uses the you know. Let's blame everything which is not. I would think that. Today he was at the game. He was really four spain the first game. He scored the first goal is taken He he was yeah. He's scored the first goal in limited twenty-five. I thought that he was in the wrong position. And the golden The referee when And tick the confidence and everything. They have to assure the audience on the players that deeply a for a game on the he realized that the game they go was good but then We went to off time on newish. Fine nine. Spain was winning minute. Fifty four seven ski score amazing incredible no doubts like gripe vision. Perfect i have nothing to say about it minute. Fifty six fifty seven. I think bennati in favor of spain and you think oh great you know for the first time either knife. It's fair for me to say that. The river is never goal penalty in favor of spain. But i will say that. The referees do not usually goal votes in favor of spain. For whatever recent nudging because the recent not gonna say anything about it Us fan As a horse. no. I think it's fair. If they wanna do what they wanna do. That's for the job that have nothing to say about that. But i have to say What i i think that i have to say. Excuse me that you cannot miss. You shouldn't need a penalty in tournament as important as the european german. The workup they final of a championship. You cannot be penalty. And if they go. The ball stole by the goalkeeper than i say yes you can use that because the goalkeeper raped your mind promotes. He threw himself in the right direction. A direct right position and he was if the ball hits the corner of the like the net on it goes to the site. And it's just like it's just it's unbelievable. Let's put it that way. And that's exactly what happened to spain day goal the fall they call the penalty. And you could tell on the our say one thing. They were playing in spain meaning. They have tied both games in spain. Dying a game home. When i stadium that you probably are used to each strictness anyways debut penalty on a think that broke the teams. That specific minute minute. Fifty six fifty seven. That broke the team and nothing was going. This pain caught many many changes of Scoring nothing was getting. We're us having a bad day. I think the moment they missed a penalty a day through their hopes through the window. Like i feel like they will use like our gonna score Like i'm i'm just gonna give up. Any i honestly think did gave up like the way. You're stephen like it. I think they were playing for the from. No one would seem paul play. I would say that they are really aggressive but does the way they are under refereed. Never thought that they were doing anything wrong. And so it's fair game on it's very. I think they did incredible java difference. I think their offense was amazing. I'm surprised scored more goals. Because spain did not have defense or offence like eve was used. It was once it honestly. I'm going to say like this way. I think recently gay. It's spain's coach. I think he needs to change something. i think. I don't know if the players i don't know if the way he decides who with this is who what changes are going to make like the blaze that the players are doing with doesn't make sense to me. I would say this honestly is just like spain. Worse trying to score a goal we've players head meaning. Let me explain this right. So they were passing the bull and the spanish players were jumping on hearing the ball with their heads. That's how they wanted to score for. At least the first you cannot score that with dudes that with players that are wait on. You is being spent Not all they dare. You're not. I don't know if wars the you know the the they're of high earn theme but i can tell you pollens players were are wait till islands. So why would you think that you can score big that like if you if spanish player jumps opponents player is going to jump higher because he's taller like there's just simple math like i don't understand why were. They decided to play like like i used. I can't i honestly. I've been trying to find reason and i just don't i don't know if they just don't understand each other. If there is miscommunication deep which could be you know these first time that we have a completely new team like this team have never played before to pressure. I think them were missing. Something could be communication. It could be anything. I think for me the best player for spain. I have to George the elbow and more at. I think you're the elbow was doing an amazing job going up and down up and down defense offense defense offense your in place. He was trying so hard he responsible. He was trying to communicate with his teammates. More data was you know. She was uploaded than i. Don't think you went to defense. As often sharia law. He was trying to score the ball. He was not like fighting so hard. Because you know police are big dude so like if you if you're surrounded by three players like they're like wait the earlier than you like it's har- on it's it's hard to move so i think he was trying to move away with bilious. I think he was strange. To create plays on score on ignorant happen under the end. I recently getty said he needed to rest at hugh chains. More on showing gaming. I i don't know if it's been just has but lacks but lock or if they're not team as good as everyone thinks they are the way they play pursue sweden poland. It's not the way it's being played against germany a year ago or it was actually doing copied so not even a year ago and they beat you like five zero the doug. I just don't see that team. The team i watch played germany setting that was hundred fund that they were communicating the place. They were just enjoying the game. The team that i saw today they gave up. They would create a stupid place. They were seen everything they could to. Honestly the referees were not helping either. 'cause i will say this and maybe some of you disagree with me on feel free to do it. I think some of the place. I think at the end of the second half polling was playing a little theory because their refrigerator not clean anything of spain so they were pushing each other and they were. There was a play. That honestly shocked me without blair for polling growth. This shirt of spanish player. And you know it's fine for failing to the other free didn't do anything about it so does kind of place you'd like shock me because how can you allow that or meaning. One thing that i would say about those. And i don't know but he. He almost fought one of spiny split. Your i think. Spain started the argument. Because i could see on my screen how he was token to eleven dusky and a bushy. Hime make you know. I don't know either. Know what happened will never know on. It's probably beating them. I think spain was trying to provoke. Lindo ski so he would do something. The referee will see it on so he would get so get yellow car and hopefully at redcar and then he would be penalized for the next couple of games. I owners leave so it that way. I think we're trying to make other people especially living dusky so he would've receive a red card. I don't know again i am. I don't if i'm the best person. I don't know what it is to be a coach. I don't i really don't because obviously i'm not a coach. But their way. Spain against poland street in proves to me that they are not ready to face the biggest themes that are england france france belgium germany portugal than already if we die against teams have never worn a european tournament against teams that are recent world cup championship. We not they are going to lose like five. Zero may be good day like there is something that needs to change. If i'm gonna give one advice. I'm just doing that advice. Maybe for myself. Maybe i use need to say and believe them. Maybe somebody's gonna listen to me. I think they need to do something different. I think they need to create different place. I think they need to change some players. I think they need to talk to each other. Something needs to change because if they lost or tie against slavic is not back from mistaken. We are going on. That could be up there with the bigger teams should not go home in the groups face in the group around like they just shooting by these rate i. We don't know what's going to happen. No one knows. Obviously but if sweden beats polin on spain slovakia that means that spain sweden would go into the next round if pollen bid sweden and spain beat slovakia when we have a brady tighter. So we'll see how it goes. But if spain loses or tigon it's game over so i would like to end this podcast by saying poland. You did amazing. I think you super juicy price me honestly. I'm going to be honest with you. A new grid at different game us discuss of some players that i never seen you ballin. You've before So big congratulations to they gain spain. Wake up or you're going home and saying these with all the love. I have in my heart by Do you date need to gen- jumping for them to win. Because if they don't it's gonna became over and honestly no one wants dotting. Spain everyone eats you know everyone has a lot of dressing them and we are hoping To see them going to the next sean of they can win. This will thank you guys for listening to the smc.

Exactly yeah honestly. I've noticed to clo- you know what.

And today we're tackling the honest life living naturally and true to you by jessica alba jessica. Alba is an actor activist and founder of the honest company. Born in california. She was raised in her words in a very conservative traditional catholic latin american family but considers herself a very liberal feminist. After graduating high school at age sixteen she studied at the atlantic theater company in new york aka joe lettuce former place of employment then quickly rose to international fame at one thousand nine hundred playing the lead role on. James cameron's show dark angel. A prolific film career followed as did activism for causes like voter registration child protection and women's health in two thousand eight. After having her first child alba became passionate about product safety when she struggled to find baby products. That were eco friendly affordable and the actually got the job done. She learned that there were more than eighty thousand chemicals on the market. That had not been fully studied for toxicity. She also learned that. The european union had banned over eleven hundred chemicals. They considered unsafe while the us had banned only five and so in two thousand eleven she lobbied for the safe chemicals act in two thousand twelve. She launched the honest company which makes nontoxic personal care and home cleaning products and in two thousand thirteen. She released her new york times bestseller. Honest life living naturally and true to you. In the honest life album shares or experiences creating a natural nontoxic life for her family and offer suggestions for other people wanting to do the same. The book includes lists of topics that ingredients to look out for strategies. She swears by and honest. Confessions of the not so natural compromises. She makes when she's too busy or can't find an eco friendly option that works for her role in writing it to create a fun practical eco-friendly handbook. That's free of lectures judgement and guilt so her readers can live a more organized healthy and honest life. That's true to them. Here's how you do it. Step one honest. Food aim for organic local seasonal whole foods. Ideally made with love at home. Avoid processed or packaged food unpronounceable ingredients. Gmo's and counting calories even mostly plant-based diet but the mindful of certain vehicle in products as many are packaged or processed in ways. That are bad for the environment. Wash all your produce. Don't microwave food and plastic as you could be leaking. Epa's into your food. And don't get to obsessive. Start slow have fun and just do the best. You can stop to honest. Clean aim for products that are gentle plant based nontoxic avoid strong fragrances. Petrochemicals parabens and products. That are two-term phobic. Behind full of words. Like hypoallergenic and natural as these terms aren't actually regulated by the government. Wash your face every night to remove pollutants and moisturizes. Consider going no poo and wearing your hair natural and be honest with yourself about what products you just can't part with that might still be toxic in all husband's case it's three dollars drugstore soap and in hers it is rutten. All's step three honest. Beauty aim for clean uncomplicated products. Don't fret over every line in blemish of white towel lead ballads acrylic nails carrington harrison and tanning beds invest in quality brushes and applicators put on a tinted moisturizer or sunscreen every morning with a minimum of thirty. Spf apply blush or bronze or only were. You'd naturally flusher tan other than that. There aren't any hard or fast rules. Just have fun. Try to be safe and don't feel bad. If you need to put makeup performance over purity at times step four honest style focus on quality not care about fit and comfort not size experiment embrace vintage where closed that make you feel good on the inside have closed that can flexibly go from dade evening and bags that are actually functional. Avoid disposable clothes. Don't fall victim to every trend or get obsessed with every brand name. Don't overdo the dry cleaning and don't forget your hats. Scarves and sunglasses for sheikh looks and sun production step five honest home aim for natural materials secondhand decor and furnishings. That are easy to clean. Check for existing festus mold and lead paint hazards avoid vinyl shower. Curtains furniture with flame retardants and pvc citing. Keep your house cleaned by taking off your shoes. Leading in some fresh air and sunshine growing plants to clean the air and aiming for one great nontoxic all purpose cleaner as opposed to a whole cupboard full of products and bleaches. And if you're not doing it already air dry close. No there's also a section on natural babycare and child rearing but alba says to ignore it if you don't have babies so that's what we did. That's what the book says. And so that's what we did for two weeks. Straight brass did lease. Tell me about your first week of living by the honest life by jessica alba. Did you lie well jolanta. I'll be honest with you. Nope no more of those jokes have her again. Li i cannot help it. get it misleads. It's easy but seriously seriously dean. And i already do most of the things jessica alba says to do on this book to some degree or another. There were a few things that you know. We knew we could do better. And so. I decided to dive in with one of the big ones via step. Two step two is honest. Clean yes and for this. I decided i would try going no pool. That means no liquid shampoos. No shampoo bars. Nothing in my hair that could be considered a cleanser for the occasional water and that is following the most extreme. Nope poo method. Just to be clear a right people have various ways they do but the original purist method is to use no cleansers only water. So i'm like. I'm going to go with the original. Why not yes kristin. I love it. That is the purest way to do. Who has someone who's experimented with many ways. I'm very impressed. You went like the full lag hardcore way. How did it go for you while rather than tell you i'll let you listen so honey. Did you notice anything different about me in the past few days. New t-shirt the whole no. It's not a new t shirt. I've had this golden girls t shirt for years now. Where did you do something with your hair or go to. Jakarta banks didn't notice. Sorry i cut my bangs like four weeks ago. No they looked great for weeks. You're end today. Thank you know but you're getting closer. It is about my hair. Oh using a new project some kind of product does it look some different. No no but what are you getting at. Well it's just it's definitely looks kind of sleek on top bit kinda wilder the bottom preston. That is very cute Look i'll be real dean lonzo and things. You're a gorgeous beautiful vision no matter what but i saw you in week one during a zoo when we were reporting a mini episode and your hair looked wet. Yeah it's bad. I feel like the top of your face also started looking. Went as the grease travel down. And this isn't like you're not unique. I have met like. I have very dry hair but i have many a friend who are like. I washed my bangs three times a day. Otherwise my face. Oil pit. And i break out everywhere and my bangs are way. Yes but you look wet. Yeah i looked very greasy. And i looked bad and jolanta. You're not the only person who thought. I looked bad fronts. Who ran into me. I look bad and brandon. Our beloved producer just smiled and nodded. When we were talking about how bad i looked. He's polite he kept his mouth shut. But even brando's i looked terrible right now either actually does it noda's slash caraway. Look like or is a really good liar What did you do after you got greasy. Honest clean. i did what. I considered the next logical. Step step three and that is honest beauty. Yes and for the step. I looked at all my beauty products. And i realized that while most of my makeup items are what jessica alba would call ford honest some of them. Including my mascara. Lipstick and sunscreen are filled with chemicals. You do like that lipstick. That is like also superglue or a lack of lack hermanez in ways that i've never experienced in in the natural world. Yeah it's like so. What did you do about those less honest beauty products. Well i mostly went makeup free. And i switched over to a barrier method. Sunscreen rather than a chemical method sunscreen and As you know dilemma. I'm a super. Spf like a person. I always between sixty and one hundred. Spf i'm hardcore about it. And unfortunately with some of these barrier sunscreens specifically the zinc. One that i got they can look at very very katie But i put some on. I rubbed in the best i could and then i met up with my friend sam at an outdoor neighborhood bar on a hot humid evening for a glass of jessica alba approved local. Biodynamic wine. And this is what happened. Do you mind if i take off my mask our drinks. They'll be here soon. Anyway all right you have served on your face. I can't quite tell what it is here yet. But it's kind of all over here. Yeah i have a mirror in bag. I think you might want. Just just look. Oh god it looks like me. He's been seeing sunscreen. Oh my god yeah. That stuff doesn't work. Does it not work or does it. Just look stupid. Actually don't know the answer to that. Maybe just makes you look so stupid that you don't go in the sun anymore. Maybe i i. You're like one of those old-timey beach movies with the person that has like zinc knows. Oh god but it was my whole face and yeah. I'm just warning everyone else out there. You're putting on a bunch of zinc sunscreen. The mask makes it worse. I believe in mass game. But i mean breathing heavily into your mask on a hot day when that mask comes off i really did look like i had just made out with. It was not good right and it is like truly less breathable. It's a barrier on your skin. Likely like stays there as the barrier. Yeah absolutely did you take any photos. Just out of curiosity from you put on instagram. Did your friend. Sam snap any obviously no look next time. Please for the graham do. It's it's for work mine. Say what did you do after not taking photos of your zinc face. I decided that. Maybe i should stop focusing on my own appearance and maybe focus on my house instead so. I jumped ahead to stop five. I yes the honest home. Yes and for this being the opposite of a housekeeper. I figured the best and easiest things i could do. Were to throw open the windows like all the says bring some fresh air and sunlight and also bring in some local flowers from the great outdoors. And before you know it. This was happening your eyes. Oh god white surf under your nose in is my son. Sorry oh my tears in mucous are look creamy again. Oh maybe maybe you should take a shower tom. No pulling you can never shower no show without putin i. I've been skipping showers altogether. Didn't you notice of afraid that. If i shower i'll get soap in my hair accident. You need to watch the pollen off like we are. In the middle of policies in your entire body is reacting to the pollen and there flowers all over our house you covered in pollen. You need to take shower. Can you think. I looked terrible. No you look amazing. Honey please take shower please. My god kristen. Come on this hour the sopo getting your hair accidentally yes. It's because i do things like wash my face. You know in the shower but come on. It's not like there's a police year. Jessica elvis to have fun and let go easy on yourself as well as being clean but i also understand the sheer disappointment of being like this will make by house beautiful and then being and it's making me sick immediately in my case often it'll all have spent money on it. Oh god but like jessica alba's right. I think when it comes to sense As well as allergens slake maybe you need to stick to like rowing non flowering plants that you know you're okay with as opposed to bring implants sin. Yeah from from. And they're blossoms and during like allergy paul linney season but like it. Sounds like you're fucking mass housing just not wetter and wetter out week. One actually it was really really bad but fortunately that was also the first week right there and that means we can all sit back now we can forget about my greasy had and we can hear about your first week. Joe went to of living by the honest life. By jessica alba. How did it start out. Be honest with me. Honestly i'm gonna freak out. We make jokes like that. But i will tell you none the less as you mentioned in the end I have to start with some honest disclosure. I two studied at the atlantic avenue school in new york. We were not there at the same time. She was also not there when i worked there Technically i believe if i remember correctly. She only did their six week summer. Program not to have your conservatory. Nearly that doesn't matter because she's a famous actor. And i am not your famous. We by that book jolanta not an actor that was discovered in nineteen once. Put it that way. It was still in regular college not even add atlantic at nine gene anyway. Just just thought. I needed to put it out there. Yes yes it's always good for us to point out. Do we have a connection with the author. If we do we should just be honest honestly. Honestly let's move on. So how did you start off. Living by jessica alba's book. I started with honest beauty. that is step three I started with this one because it seemed easy for me christon. There's a list. That's very involved. Lots of ingredients. You should avoid sunscreen rules. But you know i'm a lot like jessica alba's we already established only be go to the same acting but over the past i'd say year and change. I have had to become obsessed with replacing all of my beauty products Before i knew. I had lupus. All i did know is that my skin was a mess eating itself alive. I didn't know. And i basically spent months with doctors and dermatologists telling me doctors are dermatologists. Basically i spent months with lots of doctors telling me to eliminate every possible allergy in in my beauty products aka. Just avoid all the shit that's listed in the books. I've literally replaced everything quite recently So i basically did a kristen where i'm like. I already do this. But i can do. More i can up the ante. So i didn't quit showering though i just replace all makeup rushes because mine are old and from a billion places. I don't know if they like were made you know cleanly away way. That's good for the environment. Krahn sleep honestly. I didn't know So i bought a makeup brush sat from echo tools which is album recommends in the book. It was surprisingly affordable I really liked the brushes. They are very soft. They come in good shape. Lots of a variety. They don't shed which i love and the packaging was super minimal recyclable and included a surprise. He's woo by surprise. Well take a less said to me showing the surprise to my partner. Brad i got these makeup oceans that jessica alba says to get these tools look at it has a little thing on it. That says plant me. Okay so where should we plant this. This is a piece of paper. No their seeds in it. See the little dots dot dot hookah jessica homeland five degradable paper packaging with the seeded sticker into the swail. It's gotta be good she. She told us We have a little pot actually right outside the window. It needs some. There's some soil limit. Miami's seats right now. Plus we have all these measures. They've you need an angled foundation breath. I've been eating blurring brush because mine totally fell apart. What i do without cica. Oh my gosh. While i am on harvesting plants from the wild you are planting new life on your balkany jolanta. That is beautiful. I love it from a makeup brush on but so much. And basically i think when i planted that seed pack. I had started doing step. Five right ooh stop five. That is the honest home His does galveston not lance aram. Hopefully those seats will grow something you ask but to keep the stop five lives. Go away. I decided to get honest about our current household needs which have changed a lot since quarantine started like like everyone's but we did make most of those major changes you know at the beginning of warranty and not as it's sort of winding down But while i was sitting on the toilet one day by drugged of struck with an idea. Let's hear hey question. What would you think Compost isn't getting picked up right. What would you think if. I made the bathroom compost paper. Recycling bathroom paper is summer. Because like i know. I've got lazy about langman. I like take products out of their boxes. Or whatever unlinked the toilet paper rolls. So alex look like let's just make it easier to recycle. Waters compost move harpist review. I'm gonna play the toilet paper roll in minute paper recycling. 'cause there's literally nothing in it right now. Oh nice making use of your benz. But i just got to tell you. Most of the local gardens are composting. Now including in a block from you so you can go back to it now also full like. Don't worry we still have our kitchen. Composts oh god is a permanent thing that has not changed good. This is just the little bathroom section. I mostly it's because like i haven't been shedding a lot of hair which is mostly what that was god at got the empty unless brag trims his beard once in a while hot it so i it made it into recycling but we do still compass over all good worry. Good good. Glad glad to hear that makes me feel so much better. Oh my gosh original lente after that. So after that. Since i was spending so much time in the bathroom i decided to do step to please. Not number two. Yeah you caught me joel until you knew i was going to make. That joke is just do it. At this point it's illness to is honest clean and not unlike honest beauty. I do on his clean very very well. Yeah is do it so well. It's basically another job of mine Has like not only. Did i have to eliminate all the allergens in my beauty products when we were figuring out. What was wrong with me. Before i knew i had lupus. We basically had to eliminate every single allergen. I could possibly come in contact. With from like soaps and detergents and floor clinging aaronson vacuums and frigging everything like different fibers leg. I even have made my own apple cider hair. Rents and avocado hair mask very similar recipes to was in her book to the point. Where i'm like good out of my head jessica. Oh my god yes. I you use avocados for that. Are you sure that you didn't actually write the stolen to you. And jessica alba are the same person. Maybe i wrote this. We've found the same shit through research and doctors in my case don't have on hers But as you always like president we can do more we can. We can do mom. So i did more for someone else and i threw out. Brad's motion. Who oh my god. Joe lente. But he has face lotion. That is so honest clean. It is honestly talk sic. It is shitty although from a stocking from like a billion christmas no basically only made of like sulfur impair events or whatever. Oh my god. I would be so mad if dean throughout my lotions. I would be so so mad. Please please say you replace this lotion. Yes of course. I am not a monster Christon i introduced to the joys of sierra metabolism. it's it's paraphrase favorite mineral oil petroleum free silicon free cruelty free. Not sleep free on. The dog is very easy to the dog. Yeah seriously you'll being don't eat at. Were exceeding their okay right anyway. I agree above your mustache. Yeah the feels the angel cool cool need it feels cool to the touch is not feel like the semi. A cool person does know yet like cooling sensation jolanta. I got to say. I love serums. I was really late to the game. I only really got into them in the last few years. But oh my god. They are soothing. their wonder zeros right. Nice not days. Radin nice like very natural very clean blue tans against using serum and he has never looked back love it. And what did you do after that. After that i hit up step for that is honest style And honestly sense. We live by the curated clause this like what a few seasons ago i said honestly not even meaning to. You can't hope on now. I can't help it back to where i was when we live by the curator klaus at not too long ago. I thought i was very good to know. I've been very satisfied with my wardrobe. Ever since but the more. I look at stop them where i was like shit. A lot of my clothes no longer meet my needs. And what do you mean by that. I mean mainly my summer and spring. Wardrobes don't meet my needs Once i got diagnosed with lupus it was made very clear to me by like every single doctor. I've seen that direct exposure to sunlight is not good for me. I am now a vampire. One of my doctor is even said. Like i need you to think great gatsby. Like light lay long slowing things that cover all your body and like a parasol so I don't know if you remember when i dress like in the summer and spring. But i don't do much greg big ads the i do pretty much. Let like most of us do hoang york summers which is like as little as possible but still like professional. Oh yeah usually have those cute highways little tiny shorts. You wear that off your cute legs. Oh my god yeah you were. Yeah it's hot in new york. It's like being inside a person's mouth on some days. And yeah it's yucky. But i did need some more full coverage close so i found a shop that offers a variety of like pretty affordable non fast fashion Like full coverage garments and. I got a few summer dress. Nice nice and i gotta say this is the right time to do it. The sister wife prairie look is very hot true. Yeah and how did your new dresses were out for ya. Well i did get some prairie look dresses because they are quite poll coverage and and made of light fabric and i did a little fashion show for brad. Take a listen very them. It's very cool. I think it's really cool. i would not take. Should you ever picking you liked it. If i pick out you does not mean. I'd be like wait. You maintain what he's trying to make. What what are you trying to tell me yet. Flowers my service like this. Because i mean i like it enough and it's like a my i can't wear the summer of things to wear with so light yes in needs to be more full coverage and i guess this is happening through sexy house. Crispin would love that loves fairy. That's right oh my god i love it. I do a little house on the prairie. I am wearing a gingham maxi dress right now. Check it out. my gosh. I am wearing a potato sack. That's striped Well i got to say. I think that sounds like a success. Even though you don't sound super confident in that kind of look. I mean an the dresses staying. It was on clearance. It has non-returnable. So i'm gonna make it work. Plus it does literally meet my needs and look fine on me will put a picture on instagram. I'm sure everyone would be like it's fine. What are you complaining about but it just. It just didn't feel quite natural if i'm being honest Well it doesn't sound like the best note to end week one on. Hopefully things will get better in week. Two i don't wanna give anything away. So i'm just gonna say let's take a break and you'll find out later. Yes but before we do. Have you lived by the honest life. Did it work for you.

About how your honest life lands When we ended your first week living by the honest life by won. Miss jessica alba. You were mass you were getting wetter and wetter. You had greasy hair had zinc face. You had snotty nose. Drippy is dean realized. You hadn't been showering. Things were bleak. How did you start week to. What did you do to raise yourself from that. Like sad wet hell. I took a shower. Thank oh my gosh. Did it help your allergies date your hair except water or did it beat off like a duck. It was crazy yes on all of the above. I guess i will say this. I think dean was right. There was a ton of pollen collecting in my hair and on my skin and stuck between my victory. Strands of my pollen everywhere. And you know. I do want to make clear. Though when i took the shower. I still did not use any sudden anything near my hair. As a matter of fact. I only kind of washed the bottom half of my face because i was afraid so would get near my hair so You know i still was no poo shaking my head shaking my head but i stuck with it. I stuck with it. Welcome to creston nothing. I can say how she read the book Great rate What do you do after that shower. I did step one okay. And that is honest food indeed and for this. I did an assessment of all the food in our house in the fridge in the pantry. And i realize that the only things that were really and truly and organic were produce items are wild. Rice is from a reservation in minnesota are pasta is from a factory in northbrook. Illinois are vegetarian. Meats are shipped in from seattle. But i wanted to do the book all the way. And that meant i essentially had to put us on an all produce diet. So i made soups. I made a salads. I made us more salads. I made us more salads but partway through the week. Dean revolted any you you made weenie roll ups but did you make peace with these. I guess i mean is that tells break. don't but that's made with ingredients that are not local organic. And that's what we've been talking all this week. We're making my own dr. I said i would make dinner tonight. Three zero do not dinner. Mate by tired of eighteen trees are put colesberg krizan dr around away and baked it and it's going to be delicious you don't have to eat. I know you're living by this book. I can't do it. Can't do it tonight tonight. i need something else. I mean creston. I don't blame dean. This is a very narrow view of local foods. Yeah dare are there are rices and pastas that that are made in new york that you could get and cheeses and all sorts of things that are beyond fruits and vegetables granted. I think things manufactured in the us kind of camp cow. What's say they count jessica. Alba does not live as extremely as you. But i know that you need to be extreme. If i'm going to do what. I'm gonna do it all the way. okay. That's what i'm gonna do except maybe i did cave eat that weenie. Roll up all. I either do not are like the ultimate snack. Yeah who does. I don't care that we're not plant. Mace no no. I will say this. We use a vegetarian weenies. Most of the time in our house so it was plant. Based burkini was seattle it was a vegetarian seattle weenie but come on kristen. You're you're making the book not fun when it's your week. Ho am i to judge. Just tell me what you did next sir. I moved ahead to step four. Okay that is on a style indeed. It is and for this stop. I decided i was gonna ditch that zinc oxide sunscreen was using and instead kind of do the same thing you were i was going to cover myself instead with a maxi dress. A giant hat. A scarf and sunglasses the way jessica alba suggests in that fashion section in her book and of course since we're still masking against cova in new york that meant i was covered head to toe including the mask and totally protected from the sun. But when i ran into a friend this happened that hello hello. Well adviser christen. Don't you here let me take off my sunglasses. see you. you look just like a beekeeper. Why thank you now note. This happened more than once to me. While i was wearing this. Get up. I also ran into our old music director. Casey holford and his brand new baby girl in street and he did not out to babies and cases and your wife joanna charlotte. Doing us very cool. Yeah she is but yeah. Pc didn't recognize me. Either he was actually scared. Because i kind of came up behind. Timothy was pushing a stroller. Que se. Oh i mean. I think it's awesome. I love the invisible person. Look doing all the time brought. Always jokes he like. I can't tell if you're hiding or a celebrity war one. And i'm like thank you. I want to never see people. I know or say hi diverge so like added bonus s like i just found out one of my good college friends lives half a block away from me and she's like why haven't i seen you on like probably 'cause y'all can't see me 'cause i'm an invisible woman yes So i love that one. But i can understand how you would be troubled by scaring your friend see. I don't want to scare people. Just want to say hi to them. When i see all right. So how did you end your week than well. My friend lives invite be out for dinner to a restaurant that claims to source most of their food locally. And i gotta say the food was great but unfortunately there was one topic that she could not stop laughing about. Are you laughing arrogant. My god looks better than it did a couple of days ago. Okay was that a week ago. It's now been Tomorrow it'll be a full two weeks with out championing. Yes okay so would say that. It looks better than it did a week. I really would love to shampoo and not a hairdresser. Less terrible looks less terrible wearing a beanie part of the night. I think because you were not loving. Look yeah and ends are still drying very very dry on the bottom and on the top still. Yeah it's really hasn't changed the like it's just insistence of your hair. It's just as bad as it was a week ago except without the beanie. Imprint is what you're saying. Yeah i mean. I think jessica alba doesn't wash your own hair. She has others to it. So the reason lashes like wash your hair like no i would say overall. The back looks worse than i have to say. Christon i do know there is something about like purging period where your scalp hostile like reacclimated to itself and like. It's not like you're almost there. Maybe i also think you fully bastardize Not washing your hair for two weeks because most people say like do it once a week twice a week. Nope not the purest. I was going for the huge. You're not a purist because you weren't having fun and hated it verdict. So did someone shampoo your hair for you. You know what that would be the perfect arc for my story right to end with me. Getting my hair shampooed but no. That's not what i did. And as of today jolanta brandon listeners. It has now been almost three weeks since i last shampooed my hair. And you're about to get a treat my friend you'll want to because i am going to take my hair down now so you can see what it looks like and maybe we can even do a screen. Grab and put it on instagram. So you can see how terrible i look on his. It looks it looks better than the first week one hundred percent. I'm serious the first week. It was really bad though. Let's be real but it looks way better. Those are great. You look really good the screen. I'll take another. I just took one spring. I'll take another but it looks good. You look around and do you know what just happened. When i took my to linda i caught a whiff of it and it smells terrible. Hair hair is like a fabric like it holds and so many smells only go. Your hair will smell like a campfire for a week. If you that's true so true holds in a lot of it does it. Smells really really bad right now. Okay so. I took a picture for the world and for the instagram honestly. It looks pretty good right. I don't think you think you pushed all the way through. And your scalp is reacclimated. And you're thinking you. Oh well that's very sweet of you to say we'll see what the listeners say when they see the photo but enough about me and my hair celente. I need to hear all about your second week of living. By the honest life by jessica alba when we left off. You were dressed as a little house on the prairie character. Sexy one though the sexy low prairie girl i yeah. I'll be out of a hint disappointed with my my new look but i was like you know what never disappoints me. The yes and food. Honest food is stop one in the book so we try to eat whole foods. We try to eat local foods. I'm not a strict about local. As creston i consider like the region or like the united states that enough. I know it still travels to me. I'm sorry i don't have. A car cannot equal out my carbon footprint. So i was like. We're pretty good on food. But i started noticing. Something about the fruit. Brad would prepare me when i asked him for like a little quick snack. Hey brian these are delightful man. Did you rent them. Know jessica alba's you always have to rinse fruit. Also told you that for a while now to just like it's not that hard. I will do it because you want me to. But the that jessica alba makes like wants to make me makes me want to not do one thing my orders from her. Oh my god. Brad does not take orders from jessica alba and i gotta tell you joe. Linda neither does dean. He doesn't believe in washing produce. I put this. is this a dude thing. No and it's not like i like brunswick or to build your immune system. Whatever i'm like. We did not grow this ourselves on our smart with our fertilizer at like we're building immune system because local pollens and shit like you know. He doesn't always buy organic even if he tells me he does. I swear an like you. Rinse off the garbage and like the detritus from travel like an getting there and other people touching it with like poop on their hands at the store anyway and like for what is worth brad. Dustin orders from jessica alba because he for years has not rinse fruit. When i've asked him to but he started doing it in the second week so orders from her nice. I'm glad to hear that. Nice but i have to say the next day. Brad prepared more fruit for me and it got worse not better. What listen suggest galvez says. We should be eating whole foods as much as possible and like wow on-line no fruit loops has the word fruit emmett like to family size. Things of fruit loops is not what we're none for one. You can just get one without giving the other. I mean you could but you wanna be on sale them. I'm just saying that's for you know it's for you frills added. Why would they because it seems like. What's donors would eat. Well i'm a whole foods. Downer the leave news licenses. It makes no sense but clearly a grad wanted to throw me under the bus. I think a little bit with both fruitless and the stoner comment Yeah i smoke a lot of weed as of late vest because of lupus and also we'd is what a whole food at a honest clean like. It's just a alba proofed in my opinion. So it's not like. I stopped smoking recreationally in the evenings while we live by this book. Well there are a lot of dispensaries that are local. I will say that. I've mentioned on the show before. There's one two blocks from my house. I know i need to go there so local that is local right there So while brad was clearly fucking with me with fruit loops and then sang. I was a stoner when i was trying to record for work. His comment dead. Remind me of one more thing i could do before my second week ended and it was revisiting step five step five reminder. Everyone that is honest home and what does that have to do with being a store owner. Okay so jessica. Alba talks about loving labels and how they help. Keep her honest home organized. So i've labeled some very important things that have not been very organized since you think. I'm such a stunner jessica. Alba says that you should leave every thing and i thought like a label. These organizers salau. It's says gardening tools an herb garden. And it's like you see his in. You know my antique vintage if you see a tucked in like what is that like. Oh this is like we're rolling. Gabriel but this is where like the actual product really improving your life throughout well done jolanta turning joke into one last silly stop. That is a great way to end your second week. Thank you thank you. And i use. Antique colored pencil. Transmit storage box only got anti. They're just repurpose anti all right. Well i guess that means its verdict time but not quite yet because we need to take a break but before we do reminder we love it when you rate envious apple podcasts and stitcher and spotify wherever you listen to the show. Just be honest about how you feel about us as long as you honestly want us. If you're around in the nineties jolanta and i were you remember. Hooked on phonics commercials.

What the fuck is your verdict. I have so many questions about the honest life by jessica alba and your verdict about it. I recommend it. I just so many questions. Let's start off with the good things. This book is really well organized. Because you know so. Many of the self help books. We read not well organized. This one is very well organized. It's a pretty fun. Read jessica alba comes across as extremely down to earth not at all judgmental and she repeatedly says not to go overboard or do the best you can. But of course being kristen minds right the opposite of that But you know dean. And i felt we had to because we were already doing most of the things she said so the only thing we could think to do was to go extreme as oh yeah. So that's what we did. We went extreme. And of course going. Extreme means i looked hideous and i felt terrible. Dean can't live on just vegetables. He's just not that guy and as we discovered. My hair smells terrible. I smell awful. Right now But i didn't dislike the advice in the book. I really didn't and i'm sure if you were just starting out with a lot of these things would be a good way to do it. It doesn't feel stressful in the same way. That zero waste home does where i know. A lot of people who zero waste home. Start freaking out this way too much. This is a more gentle easy way to get into it. So i think it's going to work for a lot of people but i do want to point out something that my friend lives said toward the end of my week to she said you know jessica alba a reliable source. She can tell us not to shampoo our own hair because she probably doesn't shampoo on hair she probably has a staff. That does that when she's on a movie set. People are probably doing that for her and she does not work in an honest industry. Let's be real. The film industry is one of the most wasteful industries in the whole world. So to listen to somebody who is in you know environmentally hostile industry. Tell us how to be equal friendly. If sometimes kind of feels disingenuous. But at the same time i can also see what she's doing trying to get people to do the best they can with what they have and right in in one sense. I think that's great. It might bring people on board who are reluctant to be equal friendly but on the flip side. I also think that maybe it's a little too forgiving. Some things and overlooks certain things that she's very much a part of yeah. Yeah totally You remind me of when. I was reading the book and she was talking about makeup. And like sometimes you have to pick performance over like cleanliness. Only i wonder if she has any idea half the stuff that people put on her face like for work. Oh there's no way she's keeping tabs on that so it's easier to be like at home when i like. Put nothing on. Because i'm naturally obscenely beautiful. like sure. yeah anyway. yeah. I mean overall. I'm still going to recommend the book though. Because i think a lot of people it will be an easy way to like dip your toe in the waters. If this is what you wanna do it it is easy. It's not intimidating it's not scary But i also think that maybe if you wanna do more than dip your toe in the water. This is not the book for you. Yeah yeah but what about you. Joe went to. What is your verdict on. The honest life by jessica alba well my verdict It starts similar to yours. Yeah like it's very pleasant read. It has lots of good information. Like perhaps too much in. Burmese owns a lot of lists of chemical. Who is going to say just the list. I found a bit overwhelming. Especially like the cam make gold list. They're listed the interview chapter. Where it's like sort of do's and don'ts but then at the end of the book where it's like very involved. Avoid all of this. And it's like i'd have to destroy my house to get rid of all of this. Oh yeah i guess. My is a bit opposite from you. Where i feel like. It's nice advice but also you can't take it all in less. Your life is very much geared around health. I'm like clean Leg the reason. I've done so much of these steps is because i had to not because i wanted to and like i would not be as strict about what goes into my body and home and laundry like health hadn't been rapidly declining in the past year and a half And like it's hard to live this. Lean world is not geared around sustainability yet or long term health like it revolves around things that are faster and easier and and cheaper to make and cheaper to buy and leg. We often choose you now. Want to t- over craftsmanship and quality and like it takes being obsessed with this shit and like making it almost not fun to do it all the way so. I just found her advice. Tubby a little like not hypocritical. But just like you when you have fun with it means. You're not taking the advice. Kind of what. I mean which is like have fun with it. Meaning you don't have to do it all but it's like if you want to do it all we can't And this book. I feel like she makes. It seem like you almost can if you just like trial little harder but like you can't. Maybe i'm just jaded because i feel like i think about this shit so much. Or maybe you just live in the world and the systems that are in place for manufacturing to government regulation. Just aren't what they should be like it. Be this hard to live clean or to live by this advice but it is in the real world and it's like frustrating so what is your verdict pendulum to. Who's gonna say personally. Even though i do a lot of what she doesn't smoke. And i liked looking at it. I think i would like i feel like i have trouble trusting the advice like your friend lives said like you have to consider the source and if i hadn't found all of these things on my own or with the help of like many doctors dealing with me personally i would not be making apple cider. Vinegar scalp rinses and like i don't think if i saw it in a book i would trust it without talking to my doctors. Ooh a mixed verdict from the two of us this week. Jolanta very mixed you go. And that's it for this episode of by the book huge. Thanks to our fabulous production team hat stitcher brandon next aaron wallace and daisy rosario and our engineer andy kristen's thanks also to nate whiter who composed our theme song ended the reasons for performing it in touch with us.

I know I say that on every episode but this has been in the works for a while and I'm so glad it's happening happening. I have Deandra Nicolotte. Joining me. Deandra is famously known. As the host of the manifest daily podcast deandra Johndroe speaks to manifestation being in control of your reality having perseverance to achieve what you truly desire her and just I'll sing spirituality and I know we'll get more into that in our chat and by the time this episode airs I myself was on manifest daily so beach sure to check out that episode and just binge the whole. Oh podcasts while you're at it because Deandra has so many good juicy jumps to share which I know you'll hear in this chat not but yeah it was such a fun conversation I really feel like I've been friends with Deandra which is like such electrical feeling especially in the times we live in today where we can all be so connected with each other but feel so alone at the same time and I know that you'll get that same feeling of feeling connected to Deandra when you listen to her pod but anyway Deandra Welkom I would love for you to yourself to the listeners. Oh my God I feel like you already summed it up pretty well how you say how can follow up Yes you guys. Hello everyone thank you for tuning in Tillerson's is episode first of all. Thank you for your time. 'CAUSE y'all know time is precious so my name is Nikola as Kristen. Sadden and I'm the creator of manifest alien manifestations really a special platform that is all the support that you need to return to your highest self. Live your best. It's like 'cause I love to add up part in there because I'm like we can be super spiritual and get caught up in all these things to live a very conscious life but at the end of the day number. It really matters if you're not having fun if you're I'm not living your best life so that really just sums up my platform what I speak to like you said lower spiritual topics manifestation but I also have a very life style spin on it. I feel like for me. I WanNa make sure that the information that I provided not only really accessible and really understandable in digestible as well but it really just this kind of sums up a lot of the things that I've gone through in my life and how I've implemented what I talk about. I'm really out here walking mytalk. So that's a lot of what I share of on my podcast podcast Transparent information authentic very robbery real. I have cried on a couple of episodes If I'm being honest here and it is just it is truly a my baby and something that is evolving as we speak. I love that and I really do see that in the way that you talk on your podcast like I feel like you're talking directly to me and I just like love the way. Hey you word everything like I feel like. It's so tangible and like there's just so much feeling behind everything that you're saying and you do break. Take down these concepts spiritual concepts in a very just like yeah digestible. Way As you were saying Lake AAC I was I 'cause I know that you brought it up in our conversation at your episode forty perseverance. Which Oh my God? I was just like kind of meal prepping this morning and I was like Shit I need a write down of like. There's so many good little juicy details dropped in there in the one that stood out to me the most is like you were talking Abou how I think it was the topic of perseverance in general. And like whatever thing when you're trying to make a reality how it's like a slow cooked meal in your Crock Pot and you gotta let all the spices spices like really soak into the food. You're making no. I feel like that's how I feel about it because it is something where I mean me and again social media I work in marketing and social media and I feel like we're so used to seeing everyone kind of hop on social and blow up all of a sudden now like hundreds of thousands ends Vollertsen's like it seems like it's an overnight process but you have to remember that a lot of people have been slow cooking their meal behind the scenes for a minute in so it's kind of this cool reminders. All of us who are working on something that you know your time line is different than everyone else's time line and maybe your crock pot set for two hours and maybe there as was set for one or maybe there's a suffer. Six hours in your meat will be extra tender when it's done but I want to turn out as promised than delicious. If you let it cook for the allotted. Yeah and we all know go for the six hours. Low and slow is always low and slow tender tender process. Yes so Deandra. How can you tell us about your spiritual journey like how did you you get to this place that you are now because like I'm just curious as like an your own solo journey to be awakened? Did you have influence her from friends or family. Like I'm just curious how you got to this point where you are now and I know that there's were all learning and growing growing but yeah I'm just I'm curious to hear about your spiritual journey so I am going to try not to talk your ear off and make this up super long story but I feel like there are a couple of things my journey and for the most part I do think a lot of things happened over time and it was kind of like now I look back at so interesting to see. That was talking about some of these topics in a way actually remember junior college. I had this friend and he was super into all this stuff like he was all about all lava tracks deep into like to the point. Where item now where it's super super philosophical stuff about parallel realities? All these things. I remember one time. He came through dorman arm and he was telling me about all this stuff and I thought he was crazy. I remember having on in the background and he was like why do you watch the news. Like all the stuff about the information being all the conspiracy theories and I learned this man is insane like why how have I even gotten to know him. Whatever and then so funny because a year later I remember I sorry to get into that stuff and I was out here reading books and talking about manifestation and to be honest with you? I don't remember a specific point. Where all of a sudden it stopped doc to me that this is what you know how my beliefs were starting to transform but it was slow over time and I had this moment it was actually the end of twenty seventeen? I had my first full time job. Talked about this on. My podcast is why this is actually one of the stories by break down and cry but I started my first full time job and and I was in a place where you know. I needed the money. I needed the experience I I wanted to actually have health benefits all the practical things at indulge person needs in this world and I started this job and it was a very toxic place. It was a toxic environment. The managers were just the way the operator was just all very toxic plays. I did have one friend in there. We're still Francis Day. Thank goodness I think. She helps to keep me afloat. But I went through this period of time where I was just really. It really depressed like I remember. I had suicidal thoughts. I just didn't think anything was worth it to keep going. It was just a really just like the worst time in my life I would never want to go back there. Wish that on anyone and I had this point where I the universe stepped it because I wanted to leave a job but I realized that this job is literally killing so toxic and I had this plan Razek Unbelievable Energy January. 'cause you know brand New Year New Year new me I gotta get out that type of thing and I had made this plan in deep down. I think part of me knew that I actually really wasn't gonNA leave at the end of January because I was so afraid of like how am I gonNa make money like I'm barely. You know making making things making ends meet up. This homage actually got to put things together and pay my bills at this point so I had this fair and I wanted to leave. What I kinda didn't WanNa leave chiefs afraid of what was going to happen after and the universe stepped in and pushed me out and that happened in the form of beginning fired from that job to actually? I walked in one day. It was two days after the New Year after we come back from like New Year's vacation. I guess I'm going to vacation but we had the often came back and it was a Wednesday and I walked walked into the office and I hadn't even take my coat off gotten settled in before my manager came in and it was like we need to talk and I knew like even before this happened. I knew something going to happen. And it was intuition and I walked into office in and basically are they told me I actually working on a bloggers network kind of thing just on facebook a facebook group and they told me that essentially that was competition for them and and so I could no longer be an employee of the company and I was fire wire and I remember walking office out of the and I sat in my car and instead of feeling like fear or sadness or just anger or anything anything like that. I actually felt relief like I felt so relieved that is had been pushed out of a situation that I was too afraid to let go of instead about of myself. And that's kind of when I felt the very forces of divine timing of the universe kind of stepping into to push back on a path or push you off the path that you really should not be going down and I remember looking at the clock and it was eleven eleven. It's so funny I look at the clock right now in zielona loving My God that's crazy and so I looked at the clock and I remember. I'm literally getting chills right now because I got shows that day too and it was like. I don't no what happened that day but that was the day where I just really like all the beliefs. All the things I remember my mom was like at one point. She had felt like I lost myself. 'cause she was like you're someone that talks about how you can really create anything that you want and you're letting this this job just kind of like take that away from you and I think in that moment I really China step back into myself and I went full force with my beliefs and from there it was like you know. I struggled with getting money after funding of the job. And all that stuff but I I had such a belief in divine timing in the universe in manifestation an increasing my own reality and I think from there that's when I started to buy all the books and read it all things and really just mold my belief system into what I knew. I wanted to be an into what I kind of knew. Deep in my heart was that I could create the life I wanted. I didn't have to live as a victim and let things happen to me. I could make things happen the way I wanted them to. And so from there. I think my journey me. Just kind of evolved in has been evolving. Ozzy go on but those are kind of or that was kind of the moment where I remember feeling just a shift a shift in how now I was experiencing my reality. Thank you for sharing that and I think that Gosh I. I'm like putting myself if in your shoes in that position and that is so devastating like of course no one wants to lose their job league. That's especially when it's out out of your control like someone's making that decision for you you know in technically but that relief that you fall. I think that is such a good indicator that whatever happened was meant to happen. I think you know anyone listening. It can can be hard to trust that. Yes this was meant to happen like. Oh you're mental. His job of you know no one wants to hear that But like how call that you trusted in you know the series of events that happened that this was meant for you in I. I think that's interesting that you also brought up that you had been planning on leaving this job and the universe kind of decided for you before before you actually committed so yeah and you and you talked about having those fears of quitting before like may be having anything else lined up and so from that experience have you learned to overcome any fairs that you've had sent and Sergio. Are you still working through any other fairs before like taking action on something. Oh my Gosh I love that question because it's so funny any that you put. You went on that specific example. Because I've actually got cycle repeat and I always say that the universe will send you lessons until until you can show that you learn them and then even when you think you learn them and you shown that you learn and sent them again just because you know. It's kind of like strengthening that muscle and really showing that you know what is going on. And so that specific lesson a gas of the leaving when something is not aligned with me anymore I think has shown up in my life in career again and so it actually showed up for recently very recently because I actually just put in my two weeks notice at my nights the current nine zero five and I remember it was it was very similar. It's almost area. I started that nine to five and it was a very very different company. The and of course it's like two years later right and it was kind of similar in a way where I started and I felt myself slowly becoming less of myself and and it was a little bit different because this time I can recognize it and this time it wasn't like is succumb. To a lot of things I was able to really be conscious of what was going on and see it happening verses this is it happening in them you realize you WanNa Osha. This happened and so basically was something where I I felt like. I would show up to work in every single day I start to show up up to work. I wasn't excited. I didn't WANNA go there. I would wake up in the morning and I would just have this feeling of going in. I started to get sick. Nick I literally never get second for me when my body at sick that is such an indicator of what I need to purge and go because literally. I don't really get sick nick and I got sick and it was so many things that are happening. I kept getting me signs and I remember thinking like this is literally i. I need to this literally exactly what happened in two years ago when I needed to go and I didn't listen to that intuition. That kind of waited and waited and waited because I was so afraid and so this time instead of waiting to be pushed out instead of waiting for for someone to fire me and from you to be like okay great. Like what am I gonNa do now. I gotta find work. I started to be proactive about it. And so I started to actually look for a new job Bob and put in you know kind of like top all my resources and my contacts and see what was out there and kind of trying to figure out where my next step was going to be before I was forced into a place where I had no other option like I wanted to have options on. I'M GONNA take this into my own hands and I actually managed to script my way into a new position so funny again because the position. I'm leaving I actually manifested this is why scripted. On my way into this position in I got got it by consciously manifesting as well but I was able to use that lesson and apply it and be like I know what I'm feeling right now. I know that I'm going through something where sure it's not gonNA work if I don't listen to my intuition and I listened to my intuition. I chose to take proactive actions. And get myself out of the the job before it turned into a situation where I was depressed again or where I was fired or anything else worst. That could happen. How interesting that out? Like our bodies. Tell us when something is wrong. Like I've totally felt that at my current company. I was like on a different a team and I literally looked like I probably did put on weight because I was like eating a lot more because I was stressed but I would like like a wake-up and like my face was puffy. I was like retaining so much water and I just like did not look well and then like eventually I added like change and the the team I was on and I work through that and I ended up being happier. But it's so our bodies no before like we do. Sometimes that something's no we really do it really is just all like energetics and it's something where you you it's like sometimes for people and everyone's different. Your intuition Kinda comes through in a different way and sometimes for me. It does manifest these physical ailments essentially. And sometimes it's like you know those feelings you'll hear about someone when they when they fall in love at first sight like that little spark you feel or something that is kind of like intuition Russian or energetics or whatever you WANNA call letting you know like this is someone you should pursue. This is something that you want to go towards and try or maybe when you have that feeling feeling of dread for something and you kind of realize like ooh this is something that I don't like your stomach. It's not like I like it for me. I experienced a lot of stomach issues as well when when it comes to anxiety and nervousness. I feel a lot of people do because that's where a lot of those specific emotions are how like in the stomach and so they do manifest in physical feelings they think. Sometimes it's easy to knock it off or kind of just throw it away and pretend that is just like a random coincidence like nothing is coincidence and if your body is telling you something like listen to your body. Listen to that nudge that intuitive back of the brain and the mind voice. That's telling you whether or not to pursue something not of course. There is is a caveat with that because sometimes the voice affair the voice of our inner mean girl comes through times that can be a voice that actually override is in contrast to pretend. It's intuition pretended sort of trying to Pushes toward something. Good when really fares trying to keep a saving and I think there is A difference with those two and you have to also learn how to differentiate between the voice and the feelings of fear and the voice and the feelings of of intuitive guidance and that is something that I'm always trying to kind of discern for myself because it can be a little bit difficult sometimes because sometimes intuitive. We're so quiet and so in so chill and very loud. Yeah and I think Fear is similar to ego right. ooh Yeah Yeah and that's so true. That's something I'm currently working through as like it. Sounds sounds cheesy and A cliche but deandre. You actually mentioned this on the episode that I listened to I think it was episode forty and I was like Oh my God. I always say the same things that it's a cliche for reason that like all of our answers are with on us and we have to like learn to lessen to that intuition and because we really do know and then it's like that ego that's trying to the Awad a call and spreading fear of like no. Don't don't do this because this may happen. But on our intuitions like hey no like listen to me Quiet like in the back. That is so funny. You're right you're right and a Lotta Times. I think. Part of part of life's too I think is is also not listening to intuition and what I mean by that. Is I think that sometimes you have to not listen to your intuition. In order to go down the path learn a lesson and realize that your intuition was right all along and I think those moments actually helped to strengthen your intuition because when that happens you kind of like it's almost almost like your I told you so moment for your own. So we're like okay like when that happens the next time you know your intuition kind of gives you some guidance and you feel that you're a little bit more ready to listen to it because you know like Oh. Last time I did listen. I went down this path. Years would happen and I feel that even happening with me and this platform that I'm creating because is when I started the podcast it wasn't a manifesto. Gaza was PODCAST and also involved into the ascent podcast although g folks no we Kinda gone through a couple of names and a couple of different things and when I started earlier this year. It's like I had this. This urge to kind of go down a path of a spiritual who'll business our spiritual path and I almost felt very. I felt a lot of imposter syndrome around like I felt like. Who Am I to to sit here Erin call myself a spiritual leader? Who Am I to talk about these topics? I don't know enough right and I think a lot of it was me having to create the podcast into into what is now to manifest daily. Talk a lot about my experiences and have a lot of people we child and say that they resume or the identify or that the specific lesson and or whatever. I talked about help them. Get through something for me to realize that. Actually yeah like if you're influencing even one person if you are helping to change even one person's life or help them to make a decision. You are a leader and you are someone whose opinion matters in who stories matter and so now it's sort of like it all. It's come full circle in a way because at one point ahead done youtube and I was talking about these topics on Youtube. I shied away from it because I really felt like I wasn't ready. I felt like I was not in. Yeah I didn't know enough and now it's so funny because I just sat here this morning and I recorded three youtube videos and I'm going to be cutting back on Youtube and talking about these topics and it's crazy it's come full circle. It's almost like I didn't listen to that into voice. That told me to do that before I listened to the fair and the EGO. That said you don't know enough and now months later later here I am about to do the same thing but now I'm able to really feel like okay. My intuition was right. I do know enough AMELITA and I can't speak to these things than people out. There are willing to listen and they are willing to support and they do understand where I'm coming from and so sometimes I think he's you have to kind of ignore your intuitive nudges in order to realize that your intuition really as very strong does know what's going on yes. I totally agree with you like eat. We're not perfect perfect. We're going to make mistakes and we have to learn from those mistakes and I love that you talked about you. Know the evolution line of your brand and what you're putting out there and I love the story that you told on your podcast of one. You did lot fear. Make the choice for you and someone came knocking on your comments and and was like. Hey where'd you go lake leg. I'm waiting for you and I think that's such a beautiful thing to remember. Is that like we're all growing and yes is there are people ton stops ahead of us but we're also ton sops ahead of someone else in just our own personal experiences and stories stories are of worth to other people maybe not everyone but like also like how boring would it be to create content. That would be for everyone. Everyone you know like if it could speak to one person that's powerful. Yeah and also I think that had to do with that is really how all my brand has evolved. I think when I first started and sometimes I go back to my older episodes Nike Range. Not just because the name was different or whatever because the content really is. They'll just as God but I cringe a little bit because I can hear that. I'm not I'm holding back a little bit and I'm not saying I never been fake I I'm not You know out here like pretending to be some not but I think what I was doing was I was showing a very small snippet of myself and I was holding back certain things because because I didn't want to appear unprofessional or didn't want to make people think that the information that I was providing was as good as as as juicy and as relevant into their lives as it is and so held back certain parts of myself and I feel like listening to old episodes versus listening to the episodes. Now it's like you can literally to hear me kind of opening up and being more of myself it's like I've warmed up to the Mike I warmed up to the audience and have come to realize that honestly someone tunes ended for some reason. They don't like neither don't like the way that I talk with. At present the information like cool. That's fine I'm not for that. They're going to get their information from someone else. Who might present it in the way that resonates with that but someone else who maybe go somewhere? And here's why manifestation talked about in a very like in a certain way that they might think is a little bit too like just formal or but not for they come to my channel on my podcast. Listen to me and hear me talking about you know my salted Caramel Boca at starbucks. And telling my whole life story Ori and they might just be like all this girl really as I can understand what she's saying. I love how she's presenting the information. She's fine she's funny and they get it in so It really is a matter of just kind of like letting yourself really open up to your audience. And they think that as my brand has evolved. That has happened to me and again like you said it was a lot of fair in the beginning about really presenting myself in a way that I thought was wrong. And now it's about realizing that presenting resenting myself in the way that feels very authentic and very aligned with who I am is going to help attract the people that are meant to be in my tribe that are meant to find me you discover me and support. Yes I feel like you just all of that. The theme that I'm getting from what you just said is just like being authentic to who you are owning who you are because like let's be honest you know I'm not the first the podcast to talk about like all these ways to improve our lives. You're not the first manifestation podcast but you know there's more in one way to dance. There's more than one way to. Let's say like Cook Chicken. If you're presenting the information that you WANNA share in your own way that's unique and people will be drawn to that or they may not be but yeah exactly you want to you want. Ah The people who I don't know like who can digest what you're presenting. Who are drawn to it and that is by being being your most authentic south exactly? He's so I know we're like twenty seven minutes in but like we should. We should circle back to you know this word manifestation because maybe some of the listeners aren't super super familiar but I you know I know that such a buzzword today and you know you speak to manifestation Deandra what does what does manifestation mean to you okay. So this is something I love to chat about because like you said is being thrown around a lot and I think that obviously everyone has their own experiences in their life and so for them they might define it a little bit differently but the way she has were always manifesting and what that means is is basically we're always creating and so. I often say that we are co creators of the universe so that were always kind of creating reality but of course there is sort of divine timing with certain things and other things that come into play with the universe so you are co creating you are manifesting and I think what a lot of people think about anything about manifestation is almost sort of like thinking about something and dad visualizing it and come see. It's almost like this magic like Sabrina. The teenage engaged in something just appears and I think that there's a lot to manifestation that is a lot deeper than not and essentially. There's a lot lot to creating the the reality that you want. That's a lot more than that. And in this ritual community often talk about clinical doing the work and a lot of that really as about rewiring during subconscious beliefs like figuring out where traumas lay figuring out which really want because at the end of the day. A lot of us are going around. We're just manifesting without even knowing what we're calling in like I said you're always manifesting you're always cleaning. You're always calling things into yourself but what really happens when you become conscious conscious of this. Entire process is that then you can start to get clear on what it is that you actually want to call into your life and then you can call in but you can also get very a clear on what it is that may be an underlying trauma or some conscious beliefs. Believe that may be actually blocking you from calling in what you want to your life so to sum it all manifestation is essentially Chretien as essentially creating the things that you want to slide calling in the blessings that you you want in your life if you wanna call it dots and it's really just when people talk about these days it's about how do actually consciously created the world and the reality that you want to love it. I love that and I love that. You mentioned that were all manifesting all the time because it's is not an action that is reserved for people who are bit more spiritual etc like anyone it can but they're they're not realizing that they are in in. It's sometimes not always positive like you could be manifesting a bad job right and So what what did your process look like. And how did that change range like one. You Zoos you mentioned when you're talking about talking about your spiritual journey that you're reading all of the books and kind of like yeah just like exposing yourself to like all of these spiritual resources Like what did that process. Look like Jake specifically and has that change like how if you kinda worked your manifestation muscle. Yeah so this is definitely something. That's really interesting thing to talk about actually was just talking about this video because my process definitely changed they think my process of manifestation has changed because of the fact that I why have consumed a lot more information around different things like I said trauma subconscious believes that type of thing and so it is really deepened my understanding of the manifestation anti station process so for example a couple of years ago. When I kind of I started to really get into this I was such a fan of this Act as if model and you hear about this when a logical watch the famous movie the secret or read the book. It's his idea of acting as if like fake it till you make it so it's like if you WanNa be you know the boss fish doing all these things. It's like acting like that person acting like whoever you want to be acting like whatever so that you can start to attract rocked the specific blessings or the specific the specific reality that is aligned with vibration of that person so the idea is Israeli. Like I said until you make it 'cause it's like fake it and faking vacant until one day. You're not taking it anymore and you wake up and you realize this is your life and so I- subscribed that model for a long time. Yeah I remember I. There was one day I can specifically remember. I went to Prudential Center in Boston. which is like this really nice like mall but it has a lot of high end stores? Like there's like Louis Vuitton on and there are just He Tory burch like all these stores and I went in there and I was at Nordstrom and I was at the socks I was walking around. Aw I was picking up these really just like luxury bags in holding them really believing that I had them in. Lord knows if I have the money to buy little small Lubaton while all are probably would have bought that thing as if injury step into this person that I was really trying to to become and one of the things that it has changed over time but my belief is I no longer subscribes acts Zeph. Because now I really understand that. There's so much power in your subconscious belief so as much as you are. Uh always trying to consciously call things consciously trying to manifest in your life your subconscious beliefs do not align with who you want to be in and what you want to have in your life. You're not going to call it in and so for me now instead of acting as if it's more about being that person and so again this is kind of similar led to act as if in that you know you figure out who it is that you want to be what it is you want and you start to basically align your life in your actions with that person person so for example me. It's like okay a fulltime entrepreneur. What does she do? She wakes up she. She has a productive day reporting videos or recording podcast interviews the editing and scheduling her mature. Schedules will organize. And that's what that looks like for me right and so instead of it being a thing where I acting as is F. and faking it till I make it. I'm really understanding that this is who I am. This is who I'm choosing to. I'm stepping into identity. I am no longer this other person person. I am now this specific person and like I said subconscious beliefs do come into play so for example if you really want to have a certain type of life but subconsciously just like you don't believe you're worthy of having that are you don't believe that you can have it for some reason you're GonNa self sabotage and for me. A lot of that has looked like not committing before so for example With the PODCAST. I have this vision of going. The podcast and it's almost like I was acting as a fright but I had to really step into the identity to become a a successful podcast host and for me that looks like committing to she weekly episodes and being very consistent about my upload schedule and so subconsciously. I don't think I believed that I could do it before. And so I would self sabotage. There will be weeks where I knew I had to get a podcast episode up but I just would literally laze around. And just the day would come when it would need to go up. And I WOULDN'T UPLOAD UPLOAD VIDEO OUR VIDEO I flow podcast than I would miss the weekend. I would miss the next week in our next week. And so that was me self sabotaging right and so I had to really get very clear a what it is becoming a successful podcasts does look like and commit to it and once you actually start to when you figure out what your subconscious beliefs are that may be causing your self sabotage. You can actually start to consciously contracts them and for me like I said I had a lot of beliefs around announced are not being able to be successful because I was not consistent and so now for me. I'm like okay. I have these conscious police around myself. Not being consistent individual. So so what am I gonNA do consciously. I'm going to be consistent. And so it takes a lot of brain power averse because you have to really focus in on being consistent but in overtime when you focus on being consistent an over and over and over again I wanNA upload these episodes weekly biweekly and weekly in now becomes a routine now becomes a part of my life. I am literally that person that it's consistent and by changing you know your your beliefs and by changing your identity and really stepping into that version of yourself. You can actually change your life and so instead of acting as F- instead of pretending you're someone and then you know if something doesn't pan out you can always say like you were just acting. It wasn't real. Oh you you have to really become that person and accept the identity about person and really stepped into every single thing that you need to be doing that person so I I think like I said overtime my my manifestation The way I manifest has changed in that way because now for me. It's more about. How can I consciously justly start to create the actions that are going to mold my subconscious belief so that I can call in the things I want and I also use different in processes while a guy like moon rituals and also left his script as well which is basically like a writing process for manifestation will like? I said most of the things I do comes down to me being very conscious about my subconscious believes and then how I can reprogram those. Oh my gosh that was Such a beautiful journey and I love like I could truly see the difference of like that act as if unlike stopping into the person you want to become because like. I know. I've done that where it's like. I'm speaking as if like. Oh yeah I I know this like this is what I want to be. But then I noticed that my actions weren't aligned and that's kind of a journey that I'm on this year where You know I've been talking about like health and wellness and spirituality but I started to notice like Oh but I'm still using like all all these toxic products in my home and that just doesn't seem aligned anymore and that's just something that like has been kind of like a rod flag to me and I'm like how can I speak to living such like a healthy lifestyle but yet I'm doing all of these things things that are affecting me in the people who enter my home and I know that's just like one small example but like I'm literally like I just feel like such a push to like make all these changes and take out like all these toxic products at my home and like I used to. I used to think that. Oh I'm never going to be this person. And I'm just thinking of like Courtney Kardashian because whether you know she's like she speaks. What was her new platform? It's goop or it's called kind kind of but like you know the way she talks on Kardashians ends on because I reality TV is my guilty pleasure but like she speaks to you. Know all the healthy living that she does and I was like. I'm never going that going to be that person who's like really conscious of the products like I'm just going to use whatever works but like just cerise. I'm like no I want. I WANNA become that person who's like very conscious of the products. I'm putting on my body and in my home and Mike in Ingesting so it's just like funny because you talking about this lake stepping into the person that you wanna be calm it just I I feel like once you get clear on that. You're I don't like your decision making is always seeing through that lens of like this version of who you want to be. It's like you can filter in every life decision through that and it's like is that aligned with who I wanna be absolutely absolutely I think it really is just a commitment right so it's literally sayings resolve that this is the this is the new change like this is who you you are now and I think we talked about this specific example on the absopure quarter for my podcast where we were talking about. When I stopped eating me like literally I had the conversation? My mom was like a couple days before Thanksgiving rob was like I don't eat meat anymore and it was there was no I wanna be a vegetarian are Pasqua -tarian rather because I still eat seafood but I WanNa be this person or I'm GonNa try to see if I can. I literally was like this. This is why am I don't eat me anymore anymore. So let's move forward as and from their own is not Turkey that Thanksgiving and it's been six years and I haven't eaten meat and it was the conscious just decision made that day and I never looked back. I think that's a lot of what this is like. If you're stepping into the identity of a specific person that you wanted to comment it's not what about again like stepping into the feeling as if you're wearing someone else's clothes and feeling uncomfortable about who you are now it's about saying this is literally who I am who I was yesterday and I think a lot of people get tripped up with thinking about. Okay whoa how am I gonNA be like fit healthy person that just yesterday I was sitting on the couch. Eating ketosis like okay. That was yesterday. That was yesterday now. Today is a new day so you get to choose again. So do you want to be the person on the couch. Eating cheetos again. I mean I will be personally because I still have some big cheetos upstairs. It's like okay. Who Do you WANNA be today? And then tomorrow wake up again and you get to choose the guy and then you can make a conscious decision that this is from Dr not. You're going to be fit your waking up GonNa go to Jim Today. Then go to Jim Soir. You can go to the gym next after that and then all of a sudden over time time instead of it being a conscious decision of you having to really like push through and really choose to be that person everyday it now becomes so cemented mended in your subconscious brain. Because you've been doing the routine over and over and over again. That is no longer a cards decision because when I I stopped eating meat like even though I really didn't and like me and even though I made the decision I have to consciously remember like I go to the grocery store and I remember I used to get lean cuisine sometimes like the orange chicken. Lean cuisine and stuff like I. I was like Oh wait. I don't eat meat anymore. I can't buy that our options and they haven't so as conscious decision now when I go to the grocery store I don't even like think like Oh i. I can't get something with chicken because it's like I know. Now it's I've been doing it for so long over and over and over not eating meat. Not Eating needs that now. Oh I don't have to consciously think about it. Go to restaurant. I know what I'm ordering I go to the grocery store. I know what I'm buying. I know what I'm not getting as well. I don't have to really think about. I don't have to use as much brainpower. Because it's such a subconscious belief in understanding that that's who I am now Yes I I'm recently on that journey of Not Eating me. I watched forks over knives. And what the hell and it's on Netflix. Yes ooh okay my hat to watch which was about so basically I mean you know. You don't documentaries. Are they definitely lean on one side but I mean like I bought into it. I'm like well 'cause I actually to have been Pasqua -Tarian for like three years all but you know they. They did talk about how you know how seafood can still you know. Have all these like Metro. Oh plastics and all of that and I know I'm like holy cutting out seafood because it started. It's like almost like what happened with me where it starts to just tastes weird to me. I don't like especially with things like salmon and then putting coloring in things like it's so odd that I'm just like I don't it just tastes weird. Like I worked worked for Saturday that cooked and I spent so much time seasoning and cooking it and I literally have like a bite and could not finish it and so it's like even as a Pasco -Tarian I'm like slowly slowly phasing out my fish because it's it's become no longer kind of aligned with me as it was a couple of years ago looks years ago. It's totally okay to like change and evolve in like change your meal and I used to be kind of ashamed aimed to share with people. You know what I wanted to e- but now I'm like no I'm not eating me and like that's just that's just the way it is and like big like did you struggle to own who you are like especially within your communities with friends and family or or has that always come naturally to you to like really shine as like. This is who I am your I feel like that has kind of always come naturally to me always kind of been someone where. I'm not afraid to be the outsider and honesty all my life. I've really felt like an outsider. Just just because it's like I'm very eccentric of an individual and I'm very kind of like loud and just that person that like I show but it's like you know I'm Vertebra thing and it has been a pretty easy for me to really just let people know these are my beliefs and not in the way of like you have took here to my beliefs too but in a way of like these are my beliefs in. I hope that you can understand that. And I'm I'm here to accept your beliefs understand them as well. 'cause I'm always open into understanding and one of the things I guess on the point of like friends and family as a over time I did. My friends circle did change. I've never in one to have a ton of friends. I can probably count on one. Hand the people that I really believe are like just friends and everyone else is like kind of like you know you call them. Friends with a really more acquaintances. Insist type of thing but for the most part there were a couple of friendships that that had to be left behind because they were just so just not aligned. With like. Who who I'd become? I think there are a lot of things that I stopped doing that. I just people who do them. I didn't want to be friends with them anymore. And so it has been easy to show up and be myself but there have been a couple of hard times along the way where I remember when I was single and dating. I think that was also like a really hard time Because you know sometimes you talk about these things. I don't know I guess. Do not good I they conversations to go into what is the meaning of life. Your God I would do the same thing I used to do. The the same thing on first dates. I'm like I know we talked about this on your podcast. I'd be like can we jump into what happens after we die really know L.. Little stuff like that. Yeah yeah and I would like Kinda test out my dates. I'm like how deep can we go and on the first date and I think that has been part of my journey and so funny because it's like the the My partner my boyfriend. He is not someone who is super up to have these conversations. He's more of like he's I'm GonNa Talk. He's more of a listener. He's like more of someone who is here to hear my ideas and listen to me kind of go on and on and on until I got it all out and I really appreciate that but then I also understand that. There are people in my life that I have in my network who I can have conversations. Asians were right. So maybe he's not the person who's GonNa sit here and talk with me out parallel lives and that's okay because that's not his jam but he totally supports my belief in things and my fleet belief in parallel realities. And he's here to listen and be open. But I have a friend Tanya who I can literally go to and we will get deep into staff off a lose our minds and we'll be like wait. How we five hours talking about this stuff? That's that's totally fine. I think for me has been processed. I'm finding again people who are here to understand my beliefs and and support them and not judge me for them and if they have different beliefs I am again here to not judge them into open to them as long as they're not detrimental to Amer me in any way I'm open to that and then for me. It's been a process of of molding my circle really to be. You know I have point people. I guess everything like. There's someone I go to against Hob those specific deep conversations and then there's someone I will go to. Oh I have a friend who is an entrepreneur fulltime entrepreneur IVA conference actually like that who I'll go to and talk to them about business in growing the business and everyone one has their specific thing. But I've sort of built my circle around who I can fill allowing this and trust and talk to about specific things that I'm I'm really interested in. Everyone has their own thing and I I really do understand that. They don't all have to be interested in every single thing that I'm interested in but as as long as we all have something that we connect on a certain way like I'm so here for that. Oh my gosh that spoke to me so much because I think that's something that we all learn in our you know in Post Grad is like as you because even in college looking back. I'm like I don't know who the fuck I was. You know everyone. Everyone's on their own journey. And maybe some people really did know who they were in college. But I didn't and I felt like post Grad you once you kind of like getting your own routine and you start to lake form form even more friendships. You do lose some and I think that is something to learn. You know like who you WanNa keep around on who you want to spend time with because time is so precious but also not every person in your life can like chuck all the boxes. Exactly what you were saying. Deandra Lake some friends you can go deep and spiritual but like then. There's other friends that you're like. Oh this is who I go to the farmer's market with because like like we both love doing that and like yeah and I think thoughts Definitely you know part of life that we we have to learn ms you know people are around for different seasons and for different things and you know it's it's something that we all have to learn on our own. Yeah exactly I completely agree with that. So I don't WanNa like change gears a little bit in like circle back to the PODCAST podcast So like I'm just curious How do you come up with the topics that you want to discuss like on each episode is that do you get inspired by your own life and things going on? Do you plan ahead because I know that in an episode you you did mention like us to have like or maybe still do have a content calendar but like what inspires each of your episodes. Yeah so I actually actually am going back to my contact counter but that being said I actually don't plan ahead too far Because I am really inspired by my life to record the episode. So what will happen as a going through something and I'll get like this urge to talk and it's almost like I. It's so funny. I used to wake up in in the middle of the night with ideas but now they nicely come to me in the morning when I wake up with my grateful foreign center coming to me at three. Am but I'll just kind of have a a urge or Najd talk about not something and it'll be against something. I'm going to my life in all kinds of sink of title and then from there it's just like my mind starts to like almost like how the podcast I'm talking in my my head in saying that they've and then for me. It's like jot down notes of like. Oh I want to touch on this I want to touch on that and then typically I love if I I can sit down and record those minutes. I get inspiration but they don't always come at a time so sometimes I'm at work or sometimes it's like late at night or whatever and I'm not really ready to go and report at a time kind of jot down notes and if I go to sit down and record if the idea still really hot and ready in flowing to me our record in all talk about that but for the content counter usually try to keep it at least a month ahead so if something comes to me I'll like I said she had a record hard and then I have an episode for the next week in for guest episodes like those episodes where I can pop them on the counter. No for shore. Like here's what we're going to be talking walking by and here's what's coming down the pipeline for those but like it's for the soul episodes. I really do love to be inspired. So I think there's something to be said about organization planning and I've been in trying to implement those a lot as I move forward because I wanna make sure I have like a really solid process of some sort so that I'm making sure that you know I'm not lapsing in content or anything like that but I also and trying to stay true to my creative process of the fact that I really create amazing content when I do so out of inspiration and not necessarily out of necessity of needing to produce a specific type of episode. You know I I know that you speak to the Sun Manifest manifest daily. How you know you're in control your the creator and you're such a creative person which I was like? Oh my God I feel like I relate so so hard to Deandra because like I'm the same way we're like I'm doing all of my own creation. I'm planning it and like I. I Love I love doing things on on my own because I am kind of a control freak. Sing Sing but if you're up for sharing and you know definitely like no pressure but I know that you mentioned that you have some exciting things coming up right like you have an event on Maybe some changes and a leave it up to you how much you WanNa share your absolutely so. I will share as you mentioned the having event coming up up so it is twenty twenty manifest circle event is going to be held on December twenty six which is actually the last new moon of the year and this event is is essentially me just wanting to gather a couple of folks in my community who listened to the podcast and support and really takes time to clear the energy of twenty nine team but really sit down and be conscious about what we're calling in for twenty twenty and I have a new moon manifestation ritual that. I love to go through until will be going through that together and I'm also so working on securing a tro cardinal to common postal cards for the group an also a speaker to common share some stories about how to really manifest magnetically magnetically. So that's something that I'm super excited for I had that fair when it came to this advanced. I remember. I has idea literally months and I think I I have idea for something like this in April and shied away from it because I was so afraid that no one would want to attend and so I didn't. I didn't implement jump on the idea at all and came back to me here at this time and I was like. I don't WanNa let this go again. I want to actually grasp us I'm actually listening to the book. I think it's a big magic and ends one really interesting. Idea she talks about in that book is the idea of like the ideas are actually active like so essentially ideas will belykh chilling out here in the world. Come to you come to specific person and you have to really nurture it. You have to jump on idea when it comes to you otherwise if you let it sit for too long long it kind of dies or goes away or find someone else and so I feel like this idea came to me I push it away. I was like no. I'm not going to do I'm scared and said you come back to her because I think she has what it takes to really pull this together and came back in so I said you know what I will honor you. I will take you in will produce this into that top and hang On I also have. I mentioned a couple of times during this episode that I am working on my youtube channel so originally. I've been on Youtube for years. And so I I have always done or created beauty. skin-care lifestyle content on youtube so think blogs and can make up tutorials. That's everything the thing and while I love makeup still I'm sitting here like a full face. Beat ready to go like I am just this morning by I really wanted to evolve evolve my platform a little bit and so I made the conscious decision to step into. You know the identity of Youtuber and so I'm going to be back on the platform and instead of it being As Channel. It's going to be manifest alien so I'm working on creating just different videos about again. Manifestation spirituality just different things like that also just is lifestyle content motivational contents racial content to really show you how to get through life because his heart not here. We all little advised at times and so that there's something that is currently in the works but should be live within the next maybe week or two And I'm also working on and this is on the I'll let you guys in on the secret because I haven't told anyone really have been teasing it when I'm actually working on Merch for manifest daily and that's that's something that is going to be not your typical merge will. Maybe typical isn't like that. But I really WANNA put my all into designing this. Making the products are very very quality and the way that I plan to roll it out is different. It's not just going to be like really immersed lives on his evergreen but it's going to be kind of like very a cool limited quantity drop so that is something that I'm working on for the year. Two thousand twenty as well as some impressive events that you guys will have hair about about if you keep up with manifestly myself on instagram. I'm sure Criminal Lincoln and the show notes you guys but yeah that's kind of what I have going on so it's a lot. It's definitely a lot of organization that I needed to implement on my end to make sure everything is going smoothly. But I'm very very excited. Like I said this has evolved. When I started the podcast I did not see any of this and I think that's the beauty of a platform like this is that you can sit and speak and share? Your words is but it can turn into so much more and it really is up to you what it turns into An. I'm really choosing for this to become Just a beautiful platform minute beautiful species and just it's it's a movement I really see it as movement. Oh my Gosh I. I'm so excited for all. I love your goodies to drop in. I will definitely be on eh but I will give you an opportunity. Deandra Endre to plug everything in a second. But I do have to ask you one final question because this is the I try to podcasts. And in the spirit of of trying something new I want to hear what is something new that you've tried recently or are planning on trying. Yeah so I kind writer touched on this earlier in this and it's like I don't know if like how silly this one is but whatever like cool I actually tried to. Salted CARAMEL MOCHA at starbucks obsessed. That's like I'm someone that usually gets ice drinks like I'll get like. I was obsessed with their coconut milk. Kiato and is currently off the menu which is very ver- very upset ain't no so I have to order piece it together and tell them all the different ingredients mass anyways so I never get hot drinks and I went into us when they and I saw aw. Salted CARAMEL MOCHA on the menu.

Ep. 20 | There Is Enough

"This is moving mountains episode twenty. Well friends we've made it to twenty podcast episodes which fills like a big accomplishment for me. Hand you if you've listened more than ten hours of me talking. This is the last episode that I will do for two thousand nineteen. Friday is a favorite day of the week. For most people because it signifies the end of work or school and the beginning of the weekend which generally means rest fun or both this year a specially. The last six months of Friday's has men in our drive into Houston to visit with refugees that are employed as homeworkers of mercy house global. We've we've had some tough years at our little nonprofit but none have been like two thousand nineteen it's been full of transition disappointment and frustration. Good and amazing things have happened to blitz. Remember that positively isn't exactly high on my strength and it's not just me saying it's been rough collectively collectively. Our staff has cried more in two thousand and nineteen then probably in our ten year history so Yeah Fun Times. It's been the ear where I've dreaded Mondays and maybe that's why the Fridays have been so sweet and there's just something very holy about stepping into the modest cramped ramped homes of refugees from around the world starting over in my city and getting a big dose of needed perspective or a tangible reminder of why we work work so hard for women around the world the languages foreign the food is fabulous and the fellowship. It is so so sweet but but it's the faith that keeps me going back believing that God intersex our lives with our global neighbors for a reason that is much bigger than then we can see or even understand. It was early Friday morning a few weeks ago and I was sitting in my car waiting to pick up my team for our weekly only track into Houston I was physically exhausted. Hadn't been sleeping well. I was spiritually depleted emotionally drained on top of stress dress at work for the last year we walked hard medical road with one of our kids when are bubbly candle and soap teacher. Open the car door and sat in my passengers. Sh- she sees she said how are you. I broke and I don't mean tears. While depend my eyes. They poured down my my face. Is I tried to apologize for my ridiculous unexpected outbursts. She patted me on the bag. Ask if I wanted her to drive and I tried to explain what I was feeling. There have been a handful of times in my life when I felt like God was speaking to me as I tried to describe my overwhelmed anxious thoughts to my friend and which all sounded like a mushy pal fear and doubt. I ended up saying something like there just isn't enough. I was talking about all the things I thought I needed. Did Wisdom Strength Endurance and money to keep things going. I was referring to provision or really what I saw as the the lack of it but as I said it I had one of those rare moments when I knew God was speaking to me. I kings seventeen. Eighteen seventeen or sixteen came to mind so forcefully that I had to stop and read it right then and there. I'm GonNa read it to you now. Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. Then the word of the Lord came to him go wants to their faith in the region of Sidon on and stay there I have directed a widow there to supply you with food so Elijah went to Zahra fifth. When he came to the town gate a widow is they're gathering sticks? He called to her and ask. Would you bring me a little water in a jar. Cya may have drink as she was going to get it he called and bring me please the piece of bread as surely as the Lord our God lives she replied. I don't have any bread. Only a handful of flour in a jar and a little well all of oil and a jug. I'm gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son that we may eat it and die. Elijah said to her. Don't be afraid. Go home and do as you have said but I make a small of a Bradfor- me from what you have five and bring it to me and then make yourself something for you and your son for this is what the Lord the God of Israel says. The Jar of a flower will not be used at and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sins rain on the land so she went away in undid as Elijah had told her there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman in her family for the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not outrun dry in keeping with the word of the Lord spoken by Elijah. As I sat in my car that day and read the Bible Story I knew immediately immediately what God was trying to tell me. Kristen I am enough. There is enough you want a dozen jars. Overflowing all the time so you won't fear or doubt but I am asking you Christon to trust me when there isn't when the jar we are has just enough oil in just in neff lower. If I give it all to you. Would you still come to me asking for more or would you rely on the the abundance of what's on hand John Piper says got his always doing ten thousand things in your life but you may be aware of three of them. Think about how many times disciples missed what Jesus was doing right in front of him. They miss the lessons. God is always working even when we don't feel him even when we don't see him he is working. I love the song called way maker. Some of the lyrics czar way maker miracle-worker promise keeper light in the darkness. My God that is who you are. I recently read an article call on desiring. God called four truths about God's provision and they were so encouraging and as we wrap up twenty nineteen which may have been the best year every life. Or maybe you're like me was filled with some discouragement and frustration and exhaustion. And you feel like you're on empty your ending the year or maybe dreading starting a new one because you have nothing left in your jar. I love these four encouraging. Tips about God's is provision number. Wine Guide may provide differently than we expect. Ham He are listening saying Yeah number two. God provides provides more of himself especially during times when we feel like we're lacking number. Three God's ultimate commit provision has already been given in the Gospel. This is so important to remember that we may not feel like we have everything we need for the for the day or to overcome the obstacle in front of us but ultimately Jesus is already won the battle. Even though it feels like it's kicking our tell he still dylan charge number four. God provides finally in eternity. There's the hope that one day our tears we wiped away way and our jars overflow and we will have everything we need in eternity with Jesus dairy some of my worst anxiety and fear. I've discovered after that I go if I go ahead and imagine the worst it dissipates. Because even in some of my biggest fears like mercy house running out of money and not being able to continue or my children facing lifelong medical challenges or facing my fears head on. I always discover that Jesus is there right in the middle of it and he is enough if mercy house global ends it ends. I been obedient and I can't keep it going anyway. It's it's not mine if my children endure suffering and hardships and they will because life brings us all kinds of disappointments. My kids belong long to Jesus and he will walk with us through the darkest places on that entire car. Ride down to Houston that day. I looked at my jars. A little differently Bentley. Instead of thinking how empty they were and how much I needed. I looked at them. Expectantly like God was about to fill them and you know what he did in a way. I didn't expect which is just like him. He filled my cup by sitting with refugees hearing their incredible incredible stories sharing their burdens of loss. And all of a sudden my problems like different. Almost easier so instead of looking at all the empty jars ars they need more time more money more wisdom or strength Margarete you name. It know that God gives us what we need when we need it. It might not always look like we want a two and honestly it probably won't but we can trust that he is up to something good because that is who he is and that is what he does be encouraged friends as you wrap up this here know that God will make away. Whether doesn't seem to be away. I'm excited to talk to you again in January where I'll be digging into launching Iran? New Book made to Move Mountains coming insane. Merry Christmas friends God bless.

If a relief in I thought for twenty twenty per episode leisurely when I hear you know waking from the dream with Dhaka Krypton Heerden and sheathing accomplished women. I'm from South Africa. She now he them clinical psychologist worth ecology she worked with Obama Libyan. All you delete athlete than and current author author book on Waking from the Dream Episode Tafoya on well foaming level because we go things like mental health. Go thing about finding are worth you know outside of just what our sports and how we can merely fulfilling adore dream in what that looks like and dumping now wish I I knew earlier my in my journey no bowed what ideal went inside. A uniform doesn't define find me. The part of me doesn't define who I am and what my worth is so hopefully into an episode opio began value from it. And you know share with Napa. Oh you know share with any athlete. 'cause let no let not alone that the author of the whatever they need thinking feeling that you know if In not alone that you can really you know unique Megan through it. Whatever you're going through hope joy and let's get to it so the question that everyone that Oh come on it? When you're younger has an athlete will bigger than the gold you went to achieve? It's an interesting question that when I was young athlete and often talk to people about this and and say I was not one of those athletes. That's when I was young dreamed of being Olympic athletes. I think I just if I'm honest. I love swimming and I was super competitive additive so I swam. 'cause everybody just loved it and I was obviously That even from Gina level at school and I just love love being in the water and I'm super competitive in whatever ideas that kind of suited me and they just found my way within that then of course as a status train hard it was probably in just entered. High School is around twelve twelve and I decided to stop doing the sports. I used to do a little bit odd gymnastics until I grew six toll. I can't gymnastics to told to do it. I did a bit of basketball okay of Naples but of high jump but you as a win. It's too high school. I really try something. That was the thing that I wanted to do and really became focused on that from Yasser around twelve eighteen years of age End of mates genius African teens and progressed to some senior African team so my career kind of just suppose it flowed from nats and it was really just something to say. I love to end enjoyed competing in flow going on that. Have you find flamingos by one day being fined the pool one day. Anything I love this. I'm actually a mismatch and so when I was younger the young kid. The doctors That she takes me swimming because is being is pretty good for asthma. Actually a lot of Zuma's that I know have have esmer's well and so. She decided to take some swimming lessons. I have all the brother and he was going at the same time so I think it was convenient for her to take together. So y'all got into. It's probably from the age of roundabouts three. I was in the pool and really as I got in. I just remember accidentally loving being in the water and something that kind of came naturally as foes and we would spend some. I remember my my brother and I in the neighborhood children in our swimming pool and pain gains. And you're running around crazy. Certain has always been around horror and then we would have cepal days we would have family holidays at the beach McCain from the ages of love being in the water at the beach each say something to say from the Seemed seven affinity full. Lucky could I had asthma too. And my day run more doc icon. Brenham come out of it and now they okay. We'll get they're gonNA run so when you started kind of seeing you Kinda went all in on the Fleming economist at age twelve and Says at what point did you say I wanNA take this to be the next web for me. You almost around about that age. Say as I got into grade eight at high school in the the middle of great eight assay ahead some decisions to make around various different sports. I thought to myself at that point. You know what I couldn't imagine myself is carrying on gymnastics. I'd go into the provincial cuts for its net end soon with Nipple Hijab but I thought to myself you know when I finished school I can really see myself carrying on swimming. That was the one thing that I really love. And so has steadily from say probably that middle of great age. It was a conscious decision that this was something that I really wanted to do. And then by the end of Grade Eight said made my fist acid African junior team. And so I suppose I kind of got rewards straight away. Wait for that decision which was great because okay this on the right path yet and every year after that I was fortunate enough to make a team to travel whether whether it was to Europe or the states or something like that and compete and so getting those kinds of awards for your hard work really motivated me to keep going and keep the suing it. Sometimes when we these like at a young age we know it can not either you know give of competent world or you know kind of backfire on though so for you. What kind of cup? Humble you know an offensive you know you achieve great thing but always More work be done better. Yeah I I think there were a number of Vista. I think my family kicked my feet on the ground and I'm always incredibly grateful for that. You know when I was at home. It was very much you simply Chris. We don't care what swimming team rewritten you. Part of the family things that you need to do here so they say my family rarely did kind of keep my feet on the ground and as much as I say that I made some African something teams which I did. I was never travelling overseas. And being the best in the world from straightaway and even in South Africa. You know there was some competitive. The report. me so I think you had to in maybe at school level. It's a little bit easier into into the higher levels and other that had quite hard to beat the goal that was in front of me. I'm going to make the teams and you go the season. You realize WHOA. I'm at be good inside Africa but I'm not that great internationally and because of my competitive nature I think that was just kicked me pushing me motivation to push further rally and yes. The safe was both of those things in my family instrumental. Tremain Tal in just helping. Keep me grounded said lots of friends I think as well that were nonstop is unknown athletes. And she's saying to someone earlier today in the best possible way. I didn't really care about you. Know as it was really fantastic that you could go and just hang on him and not have to be kissed in the summit you could it just via self. I love the Laflin because he kriton yourself having a lot of time. You know like we don't really like her last call that we have to call them in our did any of being you know Kobe. The athletes Stand your kristen. Yeah exactly it has sometimes. Yeah people don't even know your name that would just use is a summer where you're the one at school is being called from the stage for example in assemblies and that you get whatever crisis that might be and as much as it was great right your identity entity can become wracked at the net. And I think all athletes union was the soft place to land this alternative world because the world of elite sport can actually be pretty cautioned. Tough and you need this other world that you can just be a selfish and self worth as well you know for me. And I'm sure we'll get onto this. You know not drawing that Ernie from my formats and the swimming pool being able to see self worth a posh from that and you hang out with friends that disliked you for you because you were doing one on the swimming pool thousand South I learned the hard way got hurt my tomato and along the athlete and I saw how the world kind of shifted for me a little bit. You know the longer no the guy like just another do not like oh different world at this way absolute is trying to figure that out and again talk a fad at old figured out. That didn't they. Were certainly times way. It was incredibly difficult when I didn't make team why didn't perform well. It's taught not enjoy yourself with from that it's hard not to see yourself as that and actually it was just off to school. I had qualified qualified for the Commonwealth Games. And Americans know the Commonwealth Games up all the Commonwealth countries are involved end. It's quite a major event and I'd qualified for it but some Africa have a standard way you have to make the qualifying time in the final at nationals and had been in the week eating up to the nationals. I didn't make time and I remember being completely devastated that a hedonist made the Commonwealth Games and it was almost a sense at that point of the second was who am. I haven't made this team. I say I remember so clearly thinking and family will love me but I had to go until my friends at this is what had happened and and your moment's started to realize that I couldn't only see myself as kristen head to also really make sure that I was seeing myself as someone else and as much as soon as schooling. My family and my friends had given me that grounding. It's so easy as an athlete. It's second to this one identity and the forms of this one identity because he spent so much time doing it and it's because it's a public as well it's split such a public performance and we're always we want to share our goals on time and we want to share a dream that they I wanna be on the stage and then we achieve it the world like. Yeah exactly and it's really hard not to think that is a complete failure your is is. That's really what it taught unites a success or failure. Really I think a lot of athletes. That's how they see it and it is hard to say when you competitive than it's something you do to really make peace with those things and as a sad to see that your self worth is not attached. You performance can be disappointed that maybe you didn't perform as you say through injury and whatever else it didn't achieve this goal will but for me. It's a slightly different thing to almost feeling like you not good enough as a person and say that something that's started to really realize feel very strongly about about and that leads to some of the things that I'm doing now. I'm because I have such an interest in that and it's a personal for me. A love the said on eighth an article right now that the bell finding peace with rapid journey. A kind of for me like I dealt a lot of always thinking out. Never happy happy because I was like man I let alone table got injured. I left the team all of it. The only man. I'll never happy with how Matha journey went away. I should've went so for you with your journey. How did you find or you always How Your Journey Abba swimmer? I think as you say it's hot as much as we can talk about it now and I'm sure you've kind of made piece of that now and the thunder and interesting article. It's difficult during the time again essay because you spending adding so much time in that role and spending so much effort and sacrifice involved and I think for me as I say it was quite pivotal. Moment that it's not making the team and really have to think through a little bit what I wanted from life and what I wanted for myself and was determined that points that that was not going to be the most important thing in life. You know that it had to be super important and it wasn't. It wasn't going to train hard that I wasn't going to work but I read. It has to have a slightly different way of thinking about myself and that was really one of the ways anyway piece but for probably six to seven weeks so after national temps at Indre WanNa some. I didn't really WANNA getting the water like I didn't want to stop but I wasn't really sure how to carry on either and my coach was ready. Great during the time and hit me kind of space to together myself the game and it was really. I think during that time that I had to make some decisions and go okay. Kosten you love to do this and get back to doing because you love to do it and you'll have to compete but you can't make it as the state the beyond your self worth and you know what. I probably swam better after that and I did before in many ways and I think there was much more of a sense of freedom afterwards and so the consequences of not performing were not that self worth was on the on the consequences sequences. Were simply that I'd be disappointed. It's a slightly different pressure that it's a little bit easier to perform under pressure. When you know the consequences are not your self worth? It was something had to be mindful time and as I said I think because acid you spend so much time in this role. It's so easy to get sucked into it so it was something I wouldn't wouldn't stick was a constant battle. It was more something I've had to be constantly mindful of not to let that overwhelmed. Everything else in my life and to keep a little bit of the balanced but just a different way of thinking. I had to keep perspective. Maybe that's a better way of putting the athlete now so from your experience. What is some ways we can like start being more cognitive of Mike Perspective? The will be like you're saying I think probably their number of them. It's quite individual but I think trying to help athletes see that. They are more than an athlete. You know the more semester and I think for me during that time I had started to realize I was really interested in psychology. My mother was interested in psychology my brother is a psychologist. My sister knows ecologist Meta studied psychology success family but I really became interested at during that time and so I knew that that's something I wanted to do. With my life and a spurs essentially. I felt that I loved swimming and it was something to compete. But it doesn't feel like that was really what I wanted to do with my life if that makes sense whereas Sony. SEC locals now you ask them what do you want to do. It might be. I WanNa be an Olympic athlete. Or A springbok rugby player whatever it might be and he said this is not a long term career you have to think about life afterwards as well and so often speak now of sports psychology. There was this idea of jewel career. You know so while you competing doing something else studying something like that. But it's almost for me. It's it goes beyond that. It's almost like a an IT. Sounds of Agile dream you can have the dream of sport but you have to have another dream because as you said Sporkin can and sometimes by your choice sometimes not but you lucky if you get to twenty seven twenty eight. And he's still in the professional world of skorts Nisa. What is another dream that you have with your life? Jeff and something that can be almost even cooler than sports and more meaningful and I think for me helping ethics to see that there's another dream mm-hmm and this other dream. It's never going to be the same as it can be every bit as interesting in sometimes even more meaningful and NFL myself. I find the work I do. Now way more meaningful than in across poof lost. It was great to do that. But it wasn't particularly meaningful change the world whereas say the work I do now. I find it much more epochal here in that. You'd have a dual dream. I'm sure you find it with ethics. You speak to as well as you say. What's the bream? And they give you the dream of sport and it's quite sad because you think that dream even if you reached that dream that's great even if you become Olympic Athletes Olympic Olympic champion or whatever it might be is going to end in that state most practice. I think the status probably around twenty seven twenty eight is the age aged. Moore's professional athletes to retire some sports. You might pay a little bit longer than others. But you think. Imagine a twenty-seven feel like that and you the little story as well. I think maybe this is also motivated me and I would try get across death. Eats I remember when side A school and we'd still been swimming a couple of days off to that that's and my high school had to be back to speak at the sports awards day so I was the guest speaker there and I went back to the high school speaking and as a reading out at my CV. Obviously at that point I didn't have much my CD other than being to school. When I'd be zooming thoughts if they asked me back in like twenty years time I would hate hate for the highlight of my CV to be that? I was Africans and at that point. I have to do something else to have to make sure that has something else worth than asking asking me back full. There's something else in my life that I've done and I said it was just also this penny trump moment for me to go this as much as I love something incredibly proud of what I've done. That was great at didn't want to live on that for the rest of my life and I wanted to create something else that could contribute Got Us back. It wouldn't be because summit because of something else that's powerful children's now. His hearing that thought products you know I like the thing like we die. You know what your legacy he added GonNa be the flavor. The athlete is like could We're all more just. We don't really know that we Matt Gogel. We get taught young age and for me like like I was taught lower the top but it was branded me that like coal the athlete you can go to college and get paid for you. Don't have to be harder to get there. You can just go there. No disobedience athletic and so you think like okay how to be the best student in on the talented athlete anywhere. Yeah exactly and as you say that's kind of what you told. I almost don't worry about school. You know just focus on you know being being a great athlete and again I just think to myself. What are we teaching young athletes that learning and knowledge is not really important as long as you can play athletics? You know big good. Whatever that's great and so many athletes? I work with as well think not that smart that moon. I didn't do what school Josh. That's ridiculous you understand that you probably maybe wanted to be outside playing but also you say can I get brands into acids like that. Pot of themselves is not to really important important and no one pays attention to it as long as you keep doing well on the sports field particularly for guys I find that young male athletes as you say that's your way into college rather than saying like Sheena maybe we're caught and get some good marks. That's another way as well so again. It comes back to us as what we talked about earlier. Is this so how many different aspects to listen and you ask the question earlier Help passage for me. It's just really trying to help them. Realize that the these different pots and as a state isn't a balance in terms of time. Time your time. It's your take training and competing things things to do but you have to have balance perspective in the way you think about yourself and and this is what you do need friends and family to help you. Keep some of that perspective of the conversation because if needed because talent Africa the African needless beer in the the United States and China Australia that are done with this alone. Sometimes and I hope that CA- math league hearing your voice in hearing how you're okay with the corner realize that been on a loan on this I for sure To be on this podcast talking about this in uh-huh interest because that's exactly it. I think we can be left to feel very alone in these things. In South Africa there are few programs that are helping athletes three transition but not right in any and I must Olympic sport. Athletes Eurasian just left your own devices and a couple of athletes that I work with and some even in France. I never forget the one that I I used to work with. I mean she was a world record holder and one of the Shoko servants and she kissed him. When I retired from something that no one even got hold of me just to say? Hey you know thank you for giving up off your life for us Even if it was just like this automated message that got into you at least have thought about it but just the feeling of being cut off from your community not that I know exactly what you felt like. I remember the first time I went back to where I trained here in Durban spent goodness six hours a day in the swimming pool. Who and off dad's retired and back? They asked me to pay to get in. You gotta be kidding me. I'm going to use in my life in this pool. A nearly asked me to pay whatever it was fifteen rand to get in and out but just feeling like an outside. You know I'm no longer inside on the outside side now the swimming community and luckily I said other stuff in my life. But if you die and it's an incredibly lonely place to be immaculate bottle like if it went from the dream Yep exactly. That's it is waking Karimun of Mrs also way as they might my idea for the book was Sir University has said I was really interested in psychology and clinical psychologist. Because I was really interested in as well in sort of what goes wrong it kind of the psychopathology and things that happened with the mind then. It kind of combined almost with the opposite end of the spectrum in some respects in terms of high performance and yeah mental skills for high performance and so through that through my training and my career said became really interested in the issue of identity and ethics and so ended up doing Komo end my PhD in the area. And I really didn't want my PhD dusty piece of research on a university shelf. Someway I think sometimes can happen Celina CETERA. How do I can get out because my research was showing that majority of elite athletes? Were we call it identity. foreclosure in other words it you just added entity narrowed down on his one thing that they were doing as we spoke about earlier self worth and everything drawn from this is what happens in win said entities. It is threatened and then I thought well one sure thing for athletes is that you are going to stop you all going to retire and even if you continue like myself I still sun on but just for fun. I don't know competing anymore so even if you still continue in the sport in some way it's not going to be at the same level is a definite threat to retirement. Identity is retirement time and the effort will actually for me. I think people like stories. We kind of learn best through stories and so decided to kind of collect a number of over time and stories from some ethics from inside Africa and ready just not that. I wasn't interested in a career. We spoke a little bit about that but really that idea of how did you decides decides to retire and what happened during this transition. And what would you have done differently in interesting. So many of them said Costa is ready. Great I mean he talks about this. But if I'm honest when I was nineteen or twenty at I would have listened to you to tell nineteen year old to think about life off like whatever but we still need to stop these conversations and I think for me. That's like a cultural shift in sport needs to come as that. These conversations nations have to be spoken about high school already but these dreams that we spoke of that needs to be something that is in student athletes from a young age was. You're for sure you're not gonNA listen anyway until these stories and to try and stay learn from athletes. That have gone before us which I know what you're doing as well which is great and I think if because they're afraid life after sports and that phrase alone is scary. Because I know for me you think about a sport. It's almost like you're done with being everything. Everything asked me nothing. If we may be rephrased to be like the next chapter you know or or like the neck uniform or something because cafe. You know you're from playing into being a football dad. You're still in the fourth worried not on the field at the The scary your Any right I mean even using word retirement is scaring me rather fit the transition as you say fitting out and I was actually speaking some people day in saying that maybe a bit away so thinking about it as Iraq says not that you just achieving sports. And if you remember like as a kid if you ever had like a kaleidoscope in others you look down and say the few think about transition and change change is more like this kaleidoscope way you look down at this beautiful picture and as you shift changes so the picture in Latin patents kind of shift change into something else and is equally as beautiful. It's something different end to save. We can have this idea of. The transition is not an end point. And it's not something worse than Dan. The picture in your life that shift and change but it's every bit as magical and beautiful as the other one and it's something you said that we should look forward to rather than something to be afraid of that caused the like if our nineteen in heard you talk me at college would hire lifting exactly executive. Would you listen and look there might be some nineteen year olds do that. I know that they will be allotted winds but I still think well we keep trying and somewhere along the line again again. I think that we need to add nineteen. We need to speak but as a safe. It goes almost beyond that we need to be speaking to young athletes at school. And I'm sure that you awesome. Did you speak to him in your spirits yourself at at high school my experience as well. It took us a game you the athlete. You're going to Olympics or you're doing this and so often you you hit parents on my kid is going to be this Olympia Four genes old goodness knows what they're going to be. That's it's at school already a kind of soution fourteen. We already kind of instilling in kids at this is the sports dream and so I said for me it has westbound that age. We need to start speaking about some of these other things. So parents and teachers and coaches like this is a great dream to have but also as you said what about your schoolwork or what about other things that you're interested in and I go and speak school and you ask these. Young athletes are young. What else you interested in other than sports and Offenbach? Well you know I enjoy hanging out with my friends and going to movies like that's not an interest we all enjoy this. What else you enjoy? What I end to this? And it's not that I could get. Will we have some self exploration also think it'd be great to if if we have like Like you teach in elbing. Athletes learned their goal to get to the dream. 'cause kind of a lot a lot of it. I just think the dream jets comes by showing up. And how could I went home like last like last ball or something in we'll talk more high school like freshmen. And also what your goal for next year and he was like. I don't get all offer to college. Like how do you get there. Like I don't know and we have big dreams but then we not to get there and then we wear limbo when all crashed. We don't make it happen absolutely and I think as you saying look just about pitching but it's also not some about working hard like you have to wear club with some other things to it as well and I mean probably slightly off topic but I'm in the another athletes. Young athletes are the days seemed to me that people always say well. If you work hard you know you can achieve what you want. And she's like that's rubbish. She worked hard and she still didn't make the team and that team and I think that so. Sometimes the problem like you can work but sports unpredictable. It's uncontrollable selectors unpredictable It's more about again. Another sounds like a cliche fiche but we also have to focus more on what you becoming through this process. NSA Don't get me wrong. It's the super competitive. I'd like to do well. Electoral alike matic's dwell but is no guarantee that if you were called you're definitely going to become the pro athletes or Olympic athletes. So they has to be something else it makes it worth it to be able to definitely if the journey through the sports absolutely. MSN Annoy Todd against bishop young athletes despite even old F. It's to really truly understand. I think you know as we speaking. Now we have the benefit of hindsight and that was saying twenty hindsight twenty twenty so we can speak not having gone through for it and I really do understand when going through it. It's a lot hotter so and in a way they use may be found this self people that you speak to but also a lot of athletes. I remember the one F Ichi. She had gone to Olympic Games and she said you know it's great to get me wrong is fantastic visa kristen. It's just it's like another meeting. You think it's going to be this incredible mind-blowing thing and change but it's not necessarily wake up the next day and it's just you and are you. One of my favorite. Quite sports coats was Irish back to Rafael Nadal tennis player and a couple of years ago when the French Open and you journalists him so do you think you're a bit of personal often. Whatever fits teisal any said he said? I don't think any bid to it's good to win. Titles it's important to win. Titles but he said I'm not bitter now than I was five hours ago. He said you have to know who you are before the match. And you have to know who you are off the match the same person and I think that's such a powerful thing because so many athletes also think by being Olympia being a world champion. I don't know if they're gonNA feel better about themselves somehow. I'm having to change them. Dramatically and it can be quite disappointing when you wake up the next day and it's just you now with middle. What if you guys and so gonNA help athletes see that we speak about this the sense of worth that you have to find a sense of worth yourself apart from this because even if I I do get that Olympic gold medal and say don't get me wrong it's wonderful and it can be very cool experience and it's awesome achievement but used to listen person fundamentally Chimenti and say athlete? Sometimes they think I'm GonNa be changed as a person because of these things and then again if it doesn't happen feel so destroyed. That didn't happen and you have to help them again. It's the see yourself as a person not just an athlete because like if the money calm during the car there the lifestyle you think that they may you ten time better that way. I thought you know had a million dollar contract added. I'll be so happy Every but it's like you put it reliably sneaking though that if you need the outside things he determined you're worth their shed so with you. You got the book and then Were agency slow all it goes. Someone asks you Dr. Kristen Christon won't do you do in. How do you serve athletes? Won't you say always laugh and I gotta ask that question because it's quite difficult to answer. Is things things. I'll try not to bore you with Steph. Essentially help athletes a headline private practice with Newton Agency. It's what's marketing and Representation Agency so my business partner Leroy Newton. He was South African Sprinter Brenna champion athletes and he represents a number of acids Manian Indian track and field but in some other sports as well so my job is the same radius poses looking off. Some of the psychological health will being of athletes. I work with the said. African Cricket Association which is like the Cricketers Plays Association and American. Start winning a quick too well but it's a big chance audience Africa and then also my players which is the rugby players association working particularly this area of Ju- career and transition and sort of life. Not just I often Life apart from it as well. So it's life skills development mental health awareness a huge area of interest for me in elite athletes. An actually that something I forgot to say earlier is that you know. My clinical training is a psychologist comes in handy working in sport because a lot of athletes who suffer depression anxiety. These kind the things so said we can see. I've often on Good Austin question. 'cause it's quite broad but in private practice agency the helping some of the athletes also run a nonprofit organization called goals only project which looks particularly women in Another issue close to Mahat issue. She being a woman in sports said of body confidence. You know just the way that we speak about women in sports media coverage of women's sports so ultimately it's quite varied. I really enjoy writing as well. Survive number of articles and was eaten agency as well L. Develops content. So it's difficult to put in one line stolen and that will make sense in author did not go to yes an author as well which is great in this book. You know. There's something I wanted to ride along a little bit nervous to stocks and then people distracted tonight and took a couple of years but I was raised in. It was done. 'cause it was a statement says something that I had really wanted to do and you know sometimes you really want to do something nervous started and then when you get going this is great and of course trying to work at the same time time is writing. It was sometimes a little bit of a struggle. But it's it's really great and Sydney wants to develop more content from that. Put it like that because I've Lissa realized that a lot of people people don't like reading the often waking from the dream with lot of Pacific look and often the Good that's great. That's great can read it. You just need to read one chapter at a time. It's one story that's digital contain from that you know that's ultimately going into the future Bob my anthem and scrolling not follow that titles like how like what more about this say. It's yes assayed waking from the dream it's really yeah. There's different significant feet so I'm trying to think you might notice a Penny Heyns was a fourteen times. We'll record holder shoes. The first fifth woman ever to win double doubles Olympics Embrace Strike She hold the world record for number times. Some soccer players interviewed Fhimah singer. He was a very famous Amos said African soccer player. Fun Fun of player. John's McKay typing. There'll be springbok rugby captains on Smith when the On Brian Mitchell who was a boxer at fourteen times will champion Bucks Ezekiel Sipping who was a Reynosa Olympic silver medalist so a a lot of Olympic ends of will champion athletes and asking about the staff at seeing this one quotes space as living the dream But I forgot about the alarm clock anthem. Such great. And that's okay and it's waking from. The dream came from this surgery. Living the dream. That alarm clock is there is waiting to go off. And then you're gonNA wake up into this life and hopefully you don't wake up into some kind of horrible night waking from the dream that normal life is even better than your dream life an essay that was radio mission of mine as well to prepare athlete. So that's a life. When you not competing in that level it has to be as much of a dream but unfortunately athletes So I'd I'd say I find my role saying don't ignore it. Close could like like like when nine point like one of our biggest started with a dream even the PODCAST CO starred with the dream so not fell out like a good point it mentally. Ill drink drink a few more questions. Though you mentioned a lot about you know about mental into health in in Philly right now. We're in a time where mental health is more of a conversation people going to have now than they have in the past. So how do we get if aware if more talk about for athletes because I think if we put on the stool and you're like in our own world then we we get when we we fall off the world kind of just got shipped off and we're left alone our own head. How do we get more mental health more or win more help for athletes around the world with nine again such a great question because as you saying something that's so important that often ignored and actually incident the day before that the NBA has signed off that every team think has to have a mental health practitioner involved in the team? That's fantastic. I think I as you say. We have to have some regulations around this that it's like a sports psychologist or someone like that. A psychologist has pot of these teams. But I do think as well as having athletes in ward. Moore's you say high profile athletes come out and speak about the experiences. Unfortunately it's a lot of asset of tired and then seon baffled with this. We need athletes that are currently competing to speak out and say. Hey this is what I'm battling with and are part of the problem is they. Don't say anything in case these contracts on the rest of the butts unless ethics willing to actually speak. It's difficult to say because they still a stigma attached and said Africa. This little huge stigma so number one if you can have some regulations number two if we can get athletes brave enough to actually speak out about these things and then it is simply like education Christian programs like. I said some of the work that I do with three second my players. It's really interesting. The first time go and talk with the cricket players of the rugby players and you mentioned mental health also kind of taken aback but as you start to speak a bit mole. It's a topic they really interested in. And then your goodness I never thought about that old. You say maybe maybe one of people suffer from mental health issue and then going on so and so I think I know that he had this feel and so being really positively we surprise at the willingness to learn is just ignoring his actually spoken Samokov. it's crazy to think in twenty nineteen that no one's actually come and spoken about mental health even at school that we speak and it was at a conference at the day. Oh said of high school speaking about mental health asking just a couple of basic questions around you know. Do you know what the president is. Anxiety the difference between a bipolar disorder and just being Moody and People Ready Winchester Winchester. And so it's the same for me at requires a spurs professionals like myself and others to Rehab Great Education awareness campaigns on nat to like thinking with the world of media. Now that the family these these younger kids are being the other. After that are getting more exposure in their getting depressed. Thinking they're worth did not good because at that media isn't showcasing them. Yeah in in his like AH starting to cycle kid value worth of like fin views for sure and say that creates exactly. I had young Matthew Office of the day and was saying she didn't get ceremony lax when price but her friend did on his like. Oh my goodness this is now what deep talking about and look. It's not GonNa go away. I get that social media's yet and used effectively it can be an incredible tool but as you say it's the fourth is getting wrapped up net part of the other problem. We know with social media's again your life spoke about supporting public your license even more public social media and in a small a little mistakes that are made kind of for the world to see and I do think it has created a lot of anxiety and other mental health issues as well but as you said as well it's it's really great to see more athletes. I mean people like Michael. Phelps must decorate Olympic athletes coming out and speaking about is battle with depression anxiety suicidal thoughts. We need to say this machine is no is no shame and I think the Axis Battle of can you be mentally tough but also suffer from some mental health problem and we mental mental health to slightly different concepts but they mixed up together and athletes head and then they don't really want to be seen as weak that I want to ask for help and honesty as well sometimes coaches Williams definite and that's not convertible like we're taught to be invincible until exactly exactly that you know and as you say like any sort of vulnerability ability is seen as weakness and unite was again. What are we teaching athletes and forget about sports? Where the in relationships nations ships whatever you have to learn to be vulnerable and sorry that side and look as you're out there competing for show you have to? You know you want to feel invincible. But again it's just healthy nothing from the life as an athlete and in their life as a person here and seeing the managing of these different aspects and helping them manage that Our talk one day and just like broadcast of Canadian. Talk to you about this all day. Let's say can lead the conversation that needs to be had more rooms morlock around more train table. Whoever may be because there's so many athletes out there that are so when their heads probably in thinking if they say they're alert loan in doing something wrong because they had these thoughts not exactly very happy to talk about? It will let you make this where we're just really just broadcasting out the identity gonNA waste from the drain tech stuff now. That's wonderful. Thank you so much as I said I really appreciate that. I'm very happy. Happy to be involved and analysis has some other stuff as well. I'll be in touch with you able to say we can work together on things because I think we a katy both field quite passionate about this and she said if even if they just a couple of athletes do you listen. It's absolutely worth it and Zuma feeling is even if they're not listening. Ben Somehow these messages have been and we still have to be talking. But it's not excuse to say well people will listen so we not speak. We have to be speaking. Go one day when that moment happened. Makes them think back the conversation that you had imagine one time exactly and they'll remember and again as you say not feel alone not like a feeling Sunday wrongly. I remember actually this is what they said and then hopefully seek the appropriate Flu Kristen though will have acquitting for you where you at Social Media Wide Web citing kind of plug right now.

Inside Coach Isaiahs Mind: Takeaways from USAC Level 1 Coaches Education

"From Fast Cat coaching. I'm Frank Overton and this is our training tips. PODCAST being able to get faster is based on and being able to FDA you gotta crime the Doj Oh to laugh on the battlefield the shit that will kill them and I was always an advocate. You could accomplish more with sweet spot training in writing and soon to fall. Performance Endurance Nutrition and weight loss is all about your future Najwa. That's what winning in the kitchen is what would believe do just feeding yourself getting fast. Welcome to the fast cap podcast where we're on a mission to make you faster cycles. Pass Catheters head coach. Frank Overton long fast cats today we are talking about coaching Ching Education and we have coach Isiah newkirk in the house. Say Hello Welcome. Isaiah Isaiah recently recently went down to Colorado Springs the headquarters of USA cycling and took the Level One coaches certification. Asian course yeah and and he's going to tell us about it he's going to. We're going to talk about what he learned. We'll probably get into some coaching philosophy. And the general belief sin in just the way that a coach thinks yes. So how was it just off the top of your head. It was great. It was great. I mean as a coach. There's not a whole lot of opportunities to step back and just sit down and think with like minded people and kind of just discuss coaching philosophies advanced coaching just general practices is as well and different scientific studies. That have been used and so on so it was really cool to just sit down with basically twenty something other coaches that Do this for a living in mom hash it out. Neutrally great so nice that I remember when I took the level one clinic that was like two thousand six. Believe maybe two thousand five a memory is fuzzy. Have a great story of with Adam. Meyerson Persson and Brian Walton. That was like my generation level on clinic but Kristen Dr Christon diaw was my instructor as well as yours. Recently area Eh. Yeah the instructors are great. I mean Way To pretty experienced instructors they both less through basically two different topics Khorasan targeted more. I guess the I don't know like I guess. The psychology side of sport in more mindfulness and less of the scientific work in other instructor covered the scientific background how to apply that so it was both covering Geno uh-huh practices within coaching cycling's Pacific. But then the nice part is Kristin has such a good background within sport and other governing bodies like hockey and basketball and just everything that we were able to apply more than just cycling. So Yeah Yeah. The type of coaching education that is relevant to all coach's not necessarily just cycling and I think you can learn a lot from like getting an interdisciplinary approach to coaches like Mike's Zaluski which talked about I read all the coaches books like Nick Sabin I follow what's that Golden Warriors. Coach's name Steve Kerr Man. He's he's like twitter hero but yeah it's just great to to learn from from other coaches in for the podcast listeners. There's not there's not a textbook out there I mean I don't to my knowledge. I don't think there's can you majoring coaching. I don't in. Yeah so actually. Kristen has school for Learning Basically Essentially coaching so outside of Sport Science and then also basically sport education. So what you think is the PE teacher You can major in that. There is more expansive knowledge within that. Like now I think that They do Masters Program. I don't know there's PhD program but you can do expansive education on how to be a quote unquote coach. And it's really interesting when you go into other sports and other governing bodies there's a lot more volume there there's more thought process there. There's more textbooks there's more predefined bullet points. It must be covered so within thin hockey with hockey there's really very quality textbook that's kind of like laid out as far as the development within athletes Protocol within coaching athletes and within development. And other things like that. So it's really interesting and and it's such a contrast to cycling or there's literally nothing nothing there's no USA. Cycling has Sport and they have different textbooks that are laid out within how to coach. Technically technically. But there's no you know no one really defining that day to day or forcing coaches to period like you don't have to do it right right. Yeah so it was just interesting to learn a lot of that stuff because it was such a different world which is cool. I helped cycling gets her someday. I think it would enhance the sport. uh-huh yeah like how do you mean like like 'cause I coach. I think most coaches out there coach from experience. It's like okay. Here's how we were coached. Here's what I've learned along the way. Emma blend those two together and I'm apply that is to my athletes and then along the way I'm GonNa you you know. Just continue to refine optimize my my approach to the way you know I help other athletes right. Yeah let me think like. And that's how would I did too and then as you get farther along you basically are letting go more of like how you coached or how you do things. And then you're starting to expand Don. Well maybe I should try this or maybe this will work or not just sticking to a strict guideline of what you have to do for every single athlete you're expanding that repertoire. And then mom pushing that the horizon within other sports but they have is set ground rule of what needs to be done and then how how to expand on that so instead of coach's coaching how they were coached and they might do that. I guess a little bit. They have kind of textbook to refer to as a way of starting where you have. I'm sure for good for bad. You have our of vast pool of coaches. That wrote this book that you can refer to and I think a lot of it actually one of the big topics that we discussed a lot. On during Level One was youth development and how that Youth Development needs to be better in general and especially within cycling and other sports and other governing bodies including fluting just like governing bodies sport general have that development really defined in really. I think that that's that we need a little bit more of that. Because because how you approach youth athlete and their development they might be just like a world class talent that could be something that really really guys them into a great place and it also could be something that guides them to the end of the sport Into burnout makes big difference in a lot of pressure as a coach. But it's really important. Yeah absolutely so. This clinic was five days like a stage race. Like nine to five. Eight to five live is eight to five every day. Sometimes we went over. We had lunch together so straight block like no one left. No one went for like a mid day rhino. I know one went for a workout like it was straight block and it was in the springs and there was snowstorm middle of it. Yeah who's intense but schools. It was a lot of learning. It was a lot of like time. Crunch like we had a lot in into that period of time But it's cool. It was at USA cycling which was Nice. It's always a cool place to be and then it was about. I think twenty five of us who supposedly wanted the bigger classes. These clinics is done every two years. So it's one of those things that it's a vast majority of very experienced people the requirements to do level one. You have to be a level two for five years or a continued education requirement It's pretty strenuous. So that means that you know minimum just to be there you have to have had level two for five years and then you know this is little bribe. But in general if you've had little for five years and you want have your little one you're probably a full-time coach like that's probably your job. And and that was the general case within the room the cool part is there were quite a few collegiate coaches and there was a couple naika coaches. There's one so it wasn't just individual or straight block just like individual athletes. There is a lot of team dynamic coaches there which is really the need because that brought in a whole different level of how to approach coaching team and not just one individual athlete or individual scenarios. It's a big difference. Those cool to touch on the I guess. The average level of coaches are number of years of the coaches ever. There were ten years so that means the vast majority of them were coaching for more ten years and it was a lot of experience a lot of knowledge within the room and you could tell within how people were asking questions in what people I to say. There's definitely buried different dynamic of who was in the room. There's some people that were very very firm and what they believe in others. That were a little more open to new knowledge and asking questions not telling so it was by you know when you stick a lot of people that are experienced. One Room and coaches tend to have opinions. It tends to result in some strong opinion for loud opinions. Right some healthy debate. Yes yeah that's awesome inside to. Do you want to run a stew like like what you learn day. Today today is like at a high level like I'm sure you cover exercise physiology sports science maybe power based training but probably some other things is that our listeners may not realize is a part of coaching. Yeah so we kind of structured in half's offs every day so one half would be on coaching as a profession. And how you want to coach and then the other half would be science-based so it was more Taking studies applying them to particular athletes. Or wire win. You would need that so the first half being coaching. Who's was nice? It was like step back. Ask yourself again like okay. You've been doing this for ten years ask yourself again. Why Are you coaching? And what are you doing doing in the first exercise did which was really basic which I think some people might enjoy. It was essentially them asking. When you think of a coach what what do you think of and post it note in draw that and pretty much I would say? Ninety percent of the broom drew your Jim Coach like their basketball p. e. teacher. And that's in. This is like fulltime coaches that are drying so you ask the general public. What are they gonNA draw? Probably GonNa draw that we expanded on that and it was like a middle-aged man blowing a whistle. All in a baseball hat like totally had one of the very one did. Do you remember the bike shorts. Not Not but it was the bike brand. They were they. Ah they're like softball pants but coaches warm and had a big fat waistband. Yeah Yeah Oh man. Yeah that's totally what it was but it was just interesting to hear that from the Profession of the of coaching sport. And well. That's probably not a good thing that the vast majority of people are drawing this like kind of negativity Environmentally like personified person. So it was just interesting and then what do you want to be. Then that's the general consensus of what a coach is what you trying to do. And what are you trying to expand on. What are you trying hi to bake your profession? Which is great because essentially then we all just kind of like? We thought we had this idea of what coaches are now. Let's try expand on that and how to make it better so you know instead of just being this middle aged do that screaming at a bunch of kids like. Why don't we expand and have it be like? Are you connecting with these kids. How are you making them better? How are you pushing the sport without being like a negative impact or pushing them too you quickly or do you just want to be this like textbook coach or do you want to be somebody? That's changing and adapting and moving and so that was essentially really a lot of the first stuff that we covered which was nice because then it as a group we realized. Hey we need to do something about this. And what are we gonNA do for it. Nara was are defining what coach is as far as their level of. I guess like not competency Consi but basically just their ability to coach and what that means so like a beginner all the way up to an expert It was really interesting that they showed us like a save. A basically sheet of what Beginner Coche is defined as a incompetent coaches defined admitted proficient coaches to find an expert fit. And you could. I could call coaches to mind and Kinda like think about where they land kind of interesting because it's like as a beginner. All right well you probably just coaching as as you were coached or coach as so you know what worked for you. Basically re applying what. You've been told her right exactly told to do. Yeah and and it's very like you either do this or you don't. There's no Adaptation there's no change. There's no manipulation. There's no customization itemization. It's basically like you're customizing as you was customized for you Like one of the things they mentioned was like. They don't know what they don't know because they just haven't gotten and to push beyond that yet and it's very one way then you have like competent coach that goes in starts to develop skills to minimize. Maybe even the time that they're coaching so like every they start to realize. Hey if I'm doing this full time I need to be pretty pretty proficient with what I'm doing. And it needs to be on par to save me time and energy then also like starting to expand. They know emphasis on building skills. And not just having it be like. Are we going to do it. This way recognizing a really big changes recognizing the impact act on the athletes alive so like maybe that'll make a difference in their family life and Exactly Yeah Yeah. And then just changing like strategic knowledge knowledge and actually applying different thought processes. And then. That's I would say. At least in my opinion. Probably vast majority wordy of coaches new ones are going to be within the beginning our realm for sure and I think a lot of just like bike racers that decide to coach on the side. That's probably where they're gonNA land because they don't necessarily devote a lot of time and energy into profession. Yeah I think what you're is another way of relating to what you're saying is in because you know when I got started in my coaching career. I would like nerd out out on the most minute. Detail really stress that with my athletes and I think that's the expression You're you're missing the forest just because you're focusing on the trees and you know nowadays like I don't even bother with The minutia the stuff that I've learned over time to experience it doesn't really matter and it's really you're just coaching on fundamentals. And now we're looking at the forest and yeah the trees are important born but we really emphasize like the forest. Just make sure those fundamentals. Yeah Yeah and then I think coaches that have been doing this for a while and once you find your path. It's like almost like path through the forest that you navigate and then there's particular trees that you probably anchor on the path through the forest to like really Focus Basan because you know that makes a big difference compared to focus on every tree right. I mean like when when I was in a you know a new coach coach I mean that was when power meters in power based training was all brand new. I mean like I mean I would comb through power thousand thousand I would mention this and this and I mean to be honest. I don't really come through. Power falls too much anymore. Training files race files. Yes but like we. We would probably emphasized that like strict structure of it. Too much badge didn't have the experience at that point. One conversation I had yesterday actually that I thought that I've been kind of juggling is in this level one clinic in day basically how to sit down step back and think about what makes a different level of a coach and that progression of being a coach. And there's no shame in being one level or the other like it's it's all a progression and we're all striving to be. Hopefully the best that you can be and like to me being an expert coaches this like ever chasing thing that I may never get to. I'm okay hey with that. But that's like but that's just me trying to be a perfectionism not necessarily if I'm comparing myself to other coaches. What would be considered but something I thought was interesting using is I agree with you? The fact that you almost need to focus less on the details as you go farther and farther into the profession but what's also interesting is when you coach elite level or pro level athletes. You almost have to like step backwards and focus on those minute things more and like like gave a little bit more detail into the data or say like our I. Will you were at this particular. Grammy needs to be this one next like in order to get this results. You almost have to like step back in time. And how they define Compton beginner and proficient and expert you almost go back like the beginner standpoints till like touch with those elite athletes. It's very interesting because it's like you almost have to be more detailed and I just thought that was an odd thing. Yeah Yeah I mean. I think a lot of times when you're coaching someone you know. We talk about elite athletes and Masters athletes and Juniors. But I think if I think of him as humans they all have a brain in. It's really how we as coaches can get them inside their head Ed to bring out their best and I don't think there's really there's like elite mindsets and there's non elite mindsets but I I have like cat for masters athletes have like an elite mindset. So it's really a fun part of coaching because you can recognize when someone's really motivated focused and they're strong mentally they may be. They may not be an elite level. Athlete that per se. So I do that part of Kolja and that's one of the things they list mentioned was once you get to like proficient and expert level coach you start to rely less on those like individual data points and you start to recognize more. I think it was more eloquently. Put it in the list but essentially it was how you recognize. Nice someone is as mentally athle- where their drive is from and calm like comprises that individual which is a really important thing need to be able to decipher. Yeah they got their shit together. Basically in life and you can tell they're going to be successful like a lot of times you you know whether you're a leader. Not You know you can just see their training habits as a coach and just realize okay we that's a fundamental we need to work on that versus versus You know a certain maybe like an elite level type of thing. Yeah Yeah I mean. It's it's that's all part of coaching. We like we as coaches the listeners. Out there we are. What's the expression jack-of-all-trades jack-of-all-trades master of none? Yeah really you have to be smart at science in sports psychology yet to be motivational. You know and and really you're not like really good like the good coaches you can have like you know like like like exercise physiology professor but but if you have an exercise phys you'll get great science but you may not. You may lack that professional. The Experience experiential base coaching that. That is extremely helpful like and so you have to be just well rounded as a coach I think there are experts out there for sure. Like there are coaches that Um I think experts isn't wrong word for it. Like special lies ation coaches that specialized and they. That's great good for them and they work within in very particular realm of athletes. I think that's appealing to some. But that's I always tried to be able to handle all ranges ages and expand my horizon that way. And that's yeah I agree. That's what makes a well rounded coach. Yeah Yeah I think just. In the more experience France you get with working with people on handling You know just being able to listen and interpret you. Know here's what they're saying but then and you know. Maybe here's what they're doing. That doesn't fall in line. Then you got to like recognize that that's happening and get them on the the path towards their goal and they don't even realize that they're maybe not taking the right steps. Yeah sharing that story with you. Bright before we went went live of the one athlete that he wanted to do something different this weekend and I asked him if he wanted to be better uh-huh and then now that athlete he knows me. He's going to hear this so we'll talk. Yeah Yeah I mean. I think a lot of times is coach. I would have been able to do that as a coach ten years ago. I didn't have that experience. Wouldn't even have been like. Oh yes sure. Change our plan. Yeah and it's like the level of confidence too and it's not I think there's a difference between cockiness confidence because like early on. You can be a coach that it is very cocky and thinks you're set in your ways and that might be applied and work well for some athletes but then you're going to get athletes at that doesn't work well for and you're not going to be able to adopt so then as you get more and more experience and I think all get all coaches are still working on this it's you gain a bigger repertoire. Hard to pull from and you are able to pull on in no the confidence to apply certain scenario. Yeah I just I mean the the more. I coached the better the more I feel like. I'm getting a better handle on just listening to people and helping like just like like I mean you can give them a training plan and all that but I like as soon as I can see that they can follow a plan a stop like emphasizing that and we move onto like like a like a more fundamental. Yeah thing like nutrition recovery or let's really define your your goals and then and get into motivation and and things like that. But as a younger coach I think it would have been like. It was all about the plan. Yeah Yeah Yeah definitely. Yeah that's so cool and so we know one point. I wanted to make in this I wanted to share this little small story like talking talking about the the the coach from Pe. I think one thing that's interesting is about like what we do. Is I have to remind myself of this this all the time. It's basically it's the customer's always right. Because our athletes they pay us in they they pay us to tell for us to tell them what to do but really to help them achieve their goals and that's different than maybe football or basketball in college. where the coach you know? It's either you can. He gets to tell you what to do. There's no money exchanged it's a It's a much different type of coaching relationship and environment in. I think the point I want to make is so when it worked with the national team and got the opportunity to you know coach the team. It's like I thought it would be like this. Eureka moment of like. Oh you know b this heavy handed like do this. Do this do this like you quickly. Realize that's not gonNA work at all. You know you come back to the the way that we coach now quickly. 'cause you gotta get athletes athletes to buy in and understand the real at rationale and A. Maybe I had it wrong on the way that football coaching works but It just seems like it's okay right now we're going to do this and you're going to work on that. And maybe maybe they are following a plan. Maybe the great coaches to coach like that. I think the each like if you make a comparison there. It's almost like a director in cycling compared to being a coach. And then you have to ply the two and I think that'd be it really hard to play the puzzles in the right way like essentially saying well why. I need to make sure this athlete elite on this team is feeling good and they get this scenario to work with the whole team can thrive compared to all right this one athlete. And I'm GonNa make them better. It's GonNa it's like a different different scenario but yeah yeah like individual attention is. What's good teams? Yeah Yeah it's hard. It's hard. I think that it'll be a great job if you're like director coach. Yeah I'd love to do someday but it is a different world especially in cycling too. Because it's like you're you're not coaching those athletes most likely. Unless you know it just happens like if you're the coach of the National Team You might be coaching a couple of athletes on that team at the most but like you're not coaching them. Otherwise otherwise so they have their own coaches that what to do. And then you're telling them what to do out on the road or at a particular race and it's that is even more weird To soccer and football and basketball and all these other team sports were like you're giving them their workouts and telling them what to do on the field right. Yeah different different will wanted to things that I noticed is for the for the athletes. I did coach like so if an athlete goes and does a race and then I see their file come up you know like dive in right away and then when I was driving the car and you basically watched the race unfold from behind it. Hello time I I didn't even need to go. Look at their powerful know. Exactly what happened. You just sat there and watched it and so what was super interesting is you. You get to see the the body language during during the race. And you don't see that powerful you see you can see how effortless effortless that was for them or how much they struggled for the results that was achieved or not and then you know very rarely did I need a power followed. Tell me that directing I didn't really do any powerful analysis. I mean we were tired at the end of the day but in doing other stuff like tasks tasks but but yeah is different from being like a you know when you send an athlete to go race and you're like you want to be there so you go to the powerful and you're like how. How did it go? What what were your tell? Give me her post activity. Come in. It's like it's so cool about being in pro races and having row athletes around me and doing the same races. And I'm sure they probably hate it at times and liked it and others when I'd be like dude. Get Out of the wind or like why. Why are you doing this? Stop doing that or I think. At one point I was in a break in some UCI race and had an athlete in the break with me. And I was like dude. What you doing thank you? You're targeting. Today as a result like get out of here sure they thought that was real annoying but when when I was like for the lack of a better term when I stopped racing in two thousand five one of the reasons I did so because I was a wound up racing against so am I. Ah Yes very got some awkward situation. Like when you're like like just have a Tom's Erbil story like he would get on on the front and take this giant pole and it was so hard that I couldn't really say anytime you should stop pulling but instead when he got tired. Then it's like you attack him. It's like can't can't tack but that was a long time ago and Yeah so we'll tell some other stuff you learned that you want to share with us today. Yeah so that was kind of the I guess the basics on basically what it was to be a coach or what we wanted to touch on on with being coach and then the other thing that we really hard on on this is all like bird's eye view but the we did a lot of developments youth development which is a really big topic right now within sport Fort General and then cycling as well and you know within development teams within USA cycling things like that we. We didn't focus too much on that. But the cool Faris. We had some Nike coaches in the room. and Nike's huge right now is blowing up for those of you don't know it's based on mountain bike league. That's countrywide at this point. I believe in different regions. Yeah California's the biggest. They have Nike when you were in high school now. No way they did. I know sweet Yeah big big deal is really booming. which is really cool? And there's some pretty big coaches coaches. That are coming out of there but anyways touch on basically Other governing bodies are exist out there that have textbooks of basically what youth development should be listed as and then that is not something that exists really within cycling cycling at all as far as I'm aware of as far as we learned at this clinic but essentially they did some interesting using defining of like all right. We'll at what point do you push us into the next phase and then you have to handle all sorts of different varieties such as this maturity puberty growth all sorts of different things. It can be as simple as you have a ten year old and you're are teaching them how to do corners on a bike and then they go through puberty and then all of a sudden everything's out of whack and they're they're literally their body is different and then all of a sudden they can't corner so it's like well when you teach them that And that can be a mental burden to for them so you have to know when they're getting through that because that could be really awkward if they you know when they were ten they were winning National Championships and just crushing everyone. And then all of a sudden they're eighteen and that's not happening happening anymore. Why and just to know when to push an athlete into the next level and that can be trading volume? That could be skills. That could be efforts. I could be all sorts of different things. And that's a hard thing to to know because it's very individualized but at the same time. It can be a little bit car. Part mineralized based often bauge puberty immaturity. Yeah yeah was it going like thought process of like when you switch from emphasizing skills to like training like a training plan versus and then more volume within junior development. Yeah I mean it's the I think that one way that they interestingly defined things was three different ways so essentially learning to train is like the initial phase so very youth so essentially just the concept of doing something consistently to actually better yourself at it. That's pretty basic and that could be the concept of riding three times a week just for fun. It could be something doing coming like a drill. It could be simple as that and then the next one is training to train. So that's actually starting to define what training is so having having maybe some workouts within their starting to introduce that having particular skills have particular practices having just things in general that are starting to apply. Hi to actually training that athletes specifically then the next one is training to compete. And that's when you're getting up into higher rounds of junior athletes uh-huh that's looking at like sixteen fifteen and above and then teaching the athlete to training for a specific event or training training to win not just training to enjoy it or training to train. Its training to winter training to do well for something civic and having goals Sir so and they kind of compare I mean I think this is individualized but because it's kind of textbook they have certain ranges and then it's interesting because it's based off of off the Times purity. I'm in how the bodies progressing males it was like. Learning to train was nine. In twelve years of age and females was more eight to eleven so a little bit younger and then training to train. It's kind of the same thing where it's it's meals. At twelve to sixteen years age and females are eleven to fifteen so again women are a little bit younger and then training to compete males or sixteen to twenty three and females or fifteen to twenty one and up and this is all plus or minus a couple ages of course but it was just interesting to hear that defined that way. uh-huh and working within their reminds me of playing tennis and basketball when I was like fourteen ahead and hit puberty yet. Oh weighed I'd like eighty pounds and you know there were kids that were like six feet tall and they were like the center on the basketball team and they scored all the points and you know they would block your shot but then you way too. You're like seventeen or eighteen. They've stayed the same height than you. You're better bigger than and then you kind of you pass them along the way but the skills you developed along the way kind of really kick in. Yeah I think that's that's the hard part especially within cycling 'cause when a youth hits puberty can make a huge difference in Chile liberty. And you hear the word child but like that's you have the doesn't Quin Simmons have a full beard. He does yeah. I mean that's a new thing that's something a lot of people are talking about is is Younger so like just add first year senior. So that's being into the twenty. Three's he's going to the Pro Tour top level the sport whether or not. That's a good or bad thing. I mean I'm sure there's all sorts of varying opinions on that and I think that is so individualized and you never know And I think teams are more willing to take that risk now. Ah Junior athlete. Yes the concept used to be that essentially you captain athlete within the twenty three threes to keep them from the top end of the sport or that pressure that level. Just give them more time in general to develop because within Sport you might have somebody. That's really good at eighteen. But then give them a couple of years and you twenty. Three's moral launching pad go off of makes a big difference But they're going away from that now for whatever reason that might be. I think most coaches will recognize in the US. The the cyclists Riding in the Tour de France now though they recognize the importance of just that development and Possibly collegiate cycling. I I hope I think. The athletes a lot of junior athletes that have gone pro or gone euro and then wind up not succeeding. I I think they were ready physically. They may have not been ready in life and There's a lot of cases out there. They get to like back twenty three or twenty four and Miss College in their day. They have a setback. And then it's like okay. They they may want to enjoy life a little bit and then so it's not sustainable. So that the U. Twenty three model at one point it was a you twenty. I five model within USA cycling. And so like when Brent Buchwalter was there you know that was you twenty five and they were given seven years to develop from eighteen to twenty five five and the goal. When you were eighteen you take the best of the best it eighteen The junior ranks and then you give him seven years to develop racing in in Europe and then the goal was to get them on a world tour team at the age of twenty five. And now it's like we're going from we're going from like winning nationals in and then you know it's like seventeen to nineteen is like this is that so do I don't know it's it's difficult because you got all sorts of different cultures and their year. What might be listed as what the USA cycling wants to do? Might be contrasting to what a Pro Tour Team I wanna do and then also just like you know what trek wants to do versus what you know Lotto wants to do. It could be very different A lot of the world tour teams have their like developmental squads and yeah. I haven't really paid that much attention. But if those exist maybe with like rob a bank had the famous you twenty the three developmental squad it definitely do. CCC has a pretty prominent one and you know they pulled from. I think one or two of those guys this year and bump them up. Aw there reconsolidate teams So they're out there I don't think trek does so. Yeah yeah but I mean I really. I really hope for Clinton I think he's a different scenario that he is able able to obviously has proven himself within European style racing and because of that I think I really hope he succeeds and I hope he has a good mind for it. You can have the physique of a Hercules. But if you don't have this epic mind for racing that's different so right now. I wish him the best thing. I wish other individuals take out the best. It'll just be interesting to see what progress over time absolutely. I mean it's a hard sport. You you gotTa love it. Yeah expect setbacks. I mean his made. It just needs to enjoy the process speak. I mean it's got to happen. I mean he's that gifted it's just a probably matter of win. Maybe a little patience go go a long way but he gets the race Perry RABEA zone full classics goodwill this year is it's pretty crazy but yeah so that was one of the big topics that we covered on was youth development and that's really tricky one to discuss because the you can have all sorts of different ways of progressing an athlete and progressing youth is really tricky because you have to Really Juggle how the mind is handling things and how far you push them. How quickly you push them? And that's really hard for parents job. It's really hard for coaches to IAGO. Well it's always going to be part of that and there's no way of really strictly defining that would be nice to have a little structure. Yeah I mean we get probably one one caller email per month of a of a parent about training plan for their thirteen year. Old A I always say. And we've we've said this on the podcast before it's go. Join the club of the local club or team or at least find some mentors. Probably no training plans are necessary. Thirteen you just some mentorship and just peers to learn from and you know. That's what's so great. Great about collegiate cycling is you don't even need a really a training plan in collegiates. You just kind of you know you just go under the wing of your upperclassmen and your friends in in your teammates and That's just you know. I think that happens at the junior level too. Yeah they have. Junior cycling is wonderful because they have practices. That is the training plan there. What's more fun than thirty? Kids going out to a park and practice in skills and stuff. It's a group format you have in your automatically apartment team like I was thinking about this the other day. That one of the reasons collegiate such an amazing thing is if you are our brand new bike racer and you've never raised like or let's say you never even trained on a bike and in the US if you try and go and start like are your Kafiristan go do race. You're probably training by yourself. You're probably not on a team. You might have like a friend or another that likes to ride but in collegiate if you're starting out and this is is a lot of the junior leagues you mmediately our team near instantly part of a group here instantly like part of this format where people are trying to help you out and it generally lease very constructive. So that's phenomenal thing in cycling and you have to be in the elite level to even be a part of a true team like that at any other circumstance. Otherwise you're a pain to be a part of a club It's just phenomenal. And that's something I think. Even I took for granted at the time. That's why like you know in four years from the time you're eighteen to twenty twenty two You know you can develop an incredibly amount. That's why we saw like you know. Riders coming in from like junior program as a US freshman at as C. riders on the C team and then four years later they're national champion or a team like stalwarts and I don't like to your point. You wouldn't get that on the group ride the opposite where cycling for whatever reason has very like shun on people were less than you type persona which is related to their own. Yeah exactly that's a bummer. I have seen some good club team formats. One in particular was a master's team that had a junior team norcal and to be on the Masters Team you had to mentor toward the junior team uncle. And so the you're assigned each. There was a one one for one so like ten to ten so ten masters ten juniors in each masters was this guy had a junior rotter and they mentored them along and that was like part of your price of admission for being on the team. I think they did pretty well. They had a good good crew. And that's normal. Yeah Yeah you don't really after collegiate whereas you know you get that junior cycling junior. There's like the Like gazillions cycling programs. And if you WANNA see those inaction just go to the nationals. That's showing where they tend to shine and we have like boulder the junior cycling here in Boulder and I think they have like they're up to two hundred kids and they have practices in all the coaches or like my peers and they raise and they're just falling tears and they're just they're emphasizing skills. And maybe when I I'm not really sure. But maybe when they're seventeen or eighteen. Do they start to emphasize like training training plans. So yeah yeah it was interesting because the outside of just rages ages on general things and I went to progress in athlete and all the different variables that play into youth development. They also covered on like we'll just like thank. You shouldn't train females like you train males. It's also the same with you. They're different they. You shouldn't just apply what you apply apply to bowl grown individual to a youth in this may seem like a dull moment but I think there's that's not necessarily the common practice and that's something that should be changed so it's you know have a particular reason to why you're giving youth a particular workout Make could find. Don't push them too far unless they're ready for it habitat in place evidence-based. Some make sure that it's something that's there for a reason and that's important. Yeah you just caused me to have a flashback till like cross country practice junior year of high school. We didn't know we were doing a workout. But we sure did and we did this. Workout twelve hours. And if we didn't like it was like we're doing like one. Hundred meter sprints and the whole team didn't make it in like I don't know ten seconds. Can we do it again man. We did a lot of sprints but that was we weren't following a plan but we we had got a great workout within like the team practice. Yeah I think that's like what it's it's funny and I think that coaching is changing across the board. At least I hope it is 'cause yeah when I was in track you everyone did the same exact workout and everyone like regardless of what you actually needed to work out or regardless if you you know. We're totally exhausted. You were still going to be doing the exact same workout. which if you think about doing that as cyclist like we gave all of our athletes the exact same workout regardless of their life and regardless of what they have going on? It's like super recipe for disaster and to do that with Youth and team dynamics like it's tricky because it's in that scenario in the track zero particularly. It's a team so it's hard to manipulate that. But like if you if we apply that to our Ashley It's Pretty Bad coaching. Oh yeah so yeah I read. This book is about European football soccer and and as I was reading it I was like well. We've been doing that for twenty years and cycling but what they were doing so in soccer you have the halfbacks and then you have the forward words in the defensive men they figured out like big data that you train the defensive many different than the halfbacks halfbacks they trained endurance and the because they run all they play the whole field whereas forwards and defensive men play half the field so they thought it was like a big deal until I figure out do different levels of endurance training per the specificity of sport. Yeah it's funny. How if you read about other four three alydar sports or training cycling's really progressive in certain ways in suber behind and others and I think all sorts are inserted manner? I don't think there is like a Superior Right Sport within coaching like in football. They I mean they'll spend thirty minutes doing calisthenics but that's like what we should be doing before we. Yeah but we tend to ignore that. Yeah well moving on I mean I understand that. Got To get the certification you had to do go through like a case study and present like what you what you thought and you you worked on. Yes we did with any of these certifications. You do a test. So there's a pretty rigorous test afterwards. That was nice and challenging which was cool and then the the also did a group case study in the clinic itself off and then you did an individual case study on your own away from the group. The group case study was really interesting because it had four or five of us an collectively that resulted in a lot of different knowledge and experience. So then that new apply that to the case study which is always really cool. So a case study in essential essentially as a group assignment where you're giving an example athlete in that example athlete in ars scenario was a aspiring Olympic level mountain biker. Who was also in school and and also had a part time job how I believe she was a female? She was roughly like twenty years old old and wanted to qualify for Not The twenty twenty Olympics but the following so as a four year progression span and the the concept of getting that athlete there which is a very tricky thing. Because it's obviously a lot of play here within being an athlete and being a student student having a job and being tied on money and all of this was kind of predefined for us and for near you as a group are able to make some assumptions ends in but then you create the kind of training outline for them and then you also discuss on like all right how you talk to an athlete about their goals. How do you like realistically realistically if you're a fulltime student part time job on? Oh yeah she also wanted to do the bar so she wanted to be a liar some day so it was. It was a lot. She had a lot of lofty goal. So it was as a coach. You talked to an athlete about that. Do you break raise them up. Do you have an honest chat with them like we do in that. We came to a conclusion on how to do that. And then from there we we actually built out annual train plans we built out an ATP for that scenario athlete and then once that was created in all set set and we had a plan made the exercise of line because otherwise it's kind of a straightforward exercise is. The instructors gave us wrenches so they threw out different scenarios areas. That happen that can throw off athletes training which is like basically what you expect from every athlete because eventually somehow something's going to go wrong they're either gonNA sick or that's an easy one. is they get sick once but it could be something as like for example. These ranches were. She was really tight for cash and coming back from team camp. She chatter car broken into and all of her stuff and in not only. was that money thing. Also Oliver Homework was stolen so she had had not trained for a week to focus on her schoolwork and worker jobs. She could get her money back then so there is that then there was. She had a bad crash got hit by a car and had a concussion otherwise she was okay but she had again another like two week period that she can ride in what to do with that and how to reformat and then because does she was around biker trying to qualify for the Olympics. She had a lot of abroad trips. That she's doing world cups on to how to juggle that with schoolwork and all these other crazy things and you know. Had this been a real athlete of mine. It would have been really interesting athlete. Take on 'cause they like she had so much going on uh-huh definitely would have been like all hands on deck for this athlete. Sure but it was just a collection size to go through with handful of well rounded coaches and just kind have put our heads together and make it happen and then we presented on it and that was nice to you because there are six other groups and to see all how other coaches coach coach in within their scenario. What people do for consultations what people do for setting up a schedule? How they take on certain chats within athletes how to motivate athletes? What people should do we even touched on nutritionists and psychologists and anything under the sun so it was cool good exercise? That's that the the path to success the linear line and then what it looks in the real world that all the setbacks and the squiggly line yeah yeah that's super straightforward. But that was the best part is just being able to adapt. And that's what makes coaching so fine. Because otherwise is it gets kind of monotonous and and this is basically what you design and then this is how you adapted to it. Yeah acid we created. I was essentially the straightforward. ATP where nothing was kind of in the way we were able to format in spring break lake. We rule the format in she wanted to cyclocross nationals or Mattie and other world cups like he was very straightforward targeted certain builds targeted certain periods. When we had that all listed out news very specific and then and then with this particular athlete because she was so time crunch and she had so much going on one of the things we it was actually like added up? How many hours in the day she realistically has to train and then applied that because as an elite athlete trying to qualify for the Olympics? Like your world class. You're supposed post to be so you need to maximize both time for recovery and training and that you know allowed us to approach like we need to have a talk of like maybe you should drop this or maybe you should drop this because this is what's important or or even the talk of like. Is this a realistic goal. Yeah so then. From there the ranch's inches occurred and then we had to adapt the so. Then have those listed on the second. ATP lists the two different ranch in where they occurred and then how we jen trained changed your training to compensate. So you know if you have a bad crash you have a concussion. Mind timed he'll brain time to heal and let's say hypothetically because this was hypothetical trained within a certain duration time then how to ramp up training again in order to make sure that she's still in a good place for her racist to come and that's just you know what What coaching is at the root of it is taking things that occur And finding a solution in in making it happen and it was as collection When you did the exercise to define that The different you mentioned engine. They did it with a group that different people had different approaches. And they're probably you all arrive at the same point. Yeah I mean it was interesting because we all had. I would say pretty differing backgrounds so there was literally a personal trainer. Her is his profession was in our group now is great because that was he covered the strength work which we have very because she was a student that was doing cross nationals for a team. And there's all these other requirements from our team. She had a very strict period of time. She was able to focus on spring training so it wasn't like she could just crank out this ten week period created to do strength training and do nothing else it was. She only had like five weeks so how to maximize that. What to target? Why redoing it so that was great? Then we had two different team coaches so one was On the military side coach Tom One of the military teams teams and then the other one collegiate coach in both of them had a very interesting way of looking at things and how certain things ADEP so like the collegiate coach brought up the fact of like. Hey they're they're in school. Are they hanging out or doing anything social. Because we didn't really you uh-huh factor that into or training. Because we weren't like well. She probably wants like three hours a week to at least hang out with her friends. Say Hi and that was a huge thing to throw into next and that's like one of the things that we added up because realistically like if you don't give an athlete that time it's GonNa fail says really great and then the military individual vigil had more of like well we can probably should approach this from have psych training in there as well so maybe converse with an expert on that front. Don't create a team for that also touches on a nutritionist Because we were throwing out the fact that elite level athlete elite. WHO's young trying to pursue world-class endeavors like? They probably need to have a pretty finite team about her but then it was also like well. She has limited funds. I do do that so yeah it was. It was very neat to have five of us from different backgrounds. Come together and Yeah Yeah. Tend to bring more of the racing side. Those in school gotTa do this race that race. Here's how you set up yours when you take a break. Yeah Yeah I mean you just had the master of nothing jack-of-all-trades Suspi but you can have your own niche within or your area of expertise right. Yeah right yeah. It was neat then. We had. Yeah Pretty Specific Test Music Classic Sue for classic tests from basically. It reminded me of college where the professor tells you what's going to be on the test and then nothing that they told view was actually on the test. My instructors listen to this. I'm totally fine with that. But essentially it was like no. I took a lot of just reminding in my own research research to find the answers and it's also just the classic questions that are Britain poorly so they just trick you into. I'm doing the wrong answer but it was finding it challenged me which is good and then do we did your case study which is also very similar to the one I described within a group session except for on your own one of the other things that I mentioned with the case studies are required to list out studies that we referenced to to pull from and that were from the scientific literature so specific science that was published from different resources and one of the big things that we studied within the clinic itself was how to make sure a study is applicable in verifiable verifiable in within the world science there are very set regiments on whether or not a study is grounded and Biz verifiable and is actually so you know has the right coefficient to be labeled as correct essentially as how they define it and that is difficult within Sport in general. But it's also even more difficult to define to find like a specific like cycling. Because if you think about it as like Okay Ah. You're doing a test on if you're able to do five minutes at four hundred watts how much faster you'll be if he us like a glove with no liner and it's doing that specific. Write test one. You need to find athletes that are able to do four hundred watts for five minutes repeatedly which is not something. That's super super common. So you're probably finding an elite level athlete and then if you were trying to throw that into the mix in their training. Let's even harder. And it's like it's a very niche thing to find that means that the level of numbers within certain specific study body's going to be really low which changes the percentage that comes back. Because if you have a really low percentage of individuals in your study looks like Ah four and then two of them the study effects in two dozen it's fifty percent so that could be either seen as really good or really bad. It's finding the right thing so that's one of the things that we discussed all if you have these studies that have really low by percentages. Like what how do you use that. Because they're going to be labeled oftentimes uh-huh as non coefficients going to be low and then you're not going to be able to have verifiable study but it's still a very useful thing and it can still be applied lied to your particular athletes. You just have to find the right ones and how that could help with a particular individual and you really need to read the fine print and really understand what's going on. Don't just take the punch line and say all right. This is the next big thing right. You need to understand where where those variables came from and what they are and whether or not that actually is going to work with you and you see it everywhere I have. Athletes asked me about studies all times Susa then you have to extrapolate like we'll this is really going to work for you but this is where to interrupt. Is there the expression oftentimes. Tom's that coaches are ahead of the scientists. And really I think that's just because you have years of experience you're drawing upon that experience you've done any experiment on so many athletes and found out what works and what doesn't and then you're introduced this and you're like how could that make a difference. Yeah and that's that's just that's just good clean experience. I think yeah and I think just being open to trying new things but with an Agitated pass compared to being like. Hey heard about this new thing where you do like seven hundred burpee day will automatically be a good sprinter. It's like oh well no but yeah and then you can find good studies and put them to use and see if they work and just be open into that is just another good way coaching. Yeah yeah I know the Vela news guys just did a podcast on interpreting data in using when to use the scientific literature win win not to to use that you know those things in relation to like just like what we're talking you know. How does that work for an athlete and then one of the things that I think they touched on or that we can mention is like a lot of these studies are done on like elite level athletes? And it's like hey you know we're just trying to coach Bob from Pennsylvania you know to to achieve his goals roles and so he may not be an elite level. You know with vio to Max of this and that and You know does the beet juice extract. Yeah you know really matter. I think the beaches was a big thing about ten years ago. You know whether it worked or not because that was like one of the supplements stuff like that that it was like one of the funny things when Max was becoming like a loops cat cat again. Yeah when Max is becoming a big you deal for a period time and had several athletes asked me about it. It's like all right. You know they were talking about how a coach applied it to Tony Martin. Okay cool put yourself in that scenario. Is that realistic. Is that something that is doable. Like are you one. Are you a full time athlete. Like are you able to get into the lab every week to figure this out. Are you able to have someone next to you. You're doing a two intervals in pricking year to get lactate values like you know like you're not so that doesn't apply and it's it's hard within cycling cycling particularly because a lot of those studies are done within a very narrow window and it's interpreting that and then applying it and like I might find a study that works with one of my athletes. And then that's not gonNa work for any of my other athletes but as a cure. I think it's important to be curious. Always be reading and trying to educate yourself because if you're able to to find those things than it's great I think that just further and further athletes. Yeah I mean I have a couple of like alerts you can set up. APPLY PUB MED. Med Sci. And there's a there's another one out there that's new it's called Aga- -demia Edu and you can just plug in keywords. And you get sent an email when there's like a you know a like a paper publish with your keywords. So yeah you know get get to stay on top of things But I think also at the end of the thing I end of the day you do come back to the fundamentals all slann. Lotta Times the science is getting really down into the weeds and While that's good and we as psychosis as we always try to think of the you know the next big thing. What can you buy or do magic boy? I think coaches we try to keep eight people within while you may be like N- earning out on this one thing. You still need to ride more and you know. Focus on your nutrition. Are you getting Eight hours asleep. That's good coach does. And it's not fancy or glamorous a Lotta Times just to bring it back because I'm I'm like old and curmudgeon by now so well. How did they athlete do do? Did you get an outcome. We didn't really get an outcome. I think if we wanted an outcome MacAulay kid has made it up. She went onto him. My My my humble opinion I think she went on and did really awesome and crushed her goals and a couple of years made it to the Olympics. So Nice Nice. That's right. Yeah I always say coaches glass half full type of people try to be well. We have been podcasting for about an hour. That's usually our format and Any final any final thoughts or words of wisdom any other Gems that you learned from the Level One clinic to put you on the spot. I think in general just sometimes all of us get into cycle of what we already know what we were already do and just in life. It's it's worth it to step back and rethink things to always continue. Learning is just a important thing to remember as well. 'cause we kind of get into. I don't know a little bit of a lazy cycle where we're like. Well already know what I'm doing so but it's like no I mean you can always you can always get better and it's hard within in coaching and within cycling as well just because there's not a lot of areas to discuss and learn so finding those are really important whatever it might be an even if that's just like getting around table with a bunch of coaches like it's it makes a big difference and that's one of my resolutions years to keep he pushing that so I guess that's that's my big takeaway. That's a good one. Yeah I always found that the cycling clinics and Seminars that I went to a lot of times. I mean the classrooms sessions. Were great but a lot of times just having lunch with other coaches like where you're like. Wow and then you get to talk about it and share just share with each other. That was often the best so well thank you for being on the podcast. You think you.

Yes russia's baby boom. Yeah yeah like. I love your attitude about embracing the time you are. God is placed you right now. I've really been thinking of that. Since i i read your questionnaire talked with you and you know. I think that that's one of the things that you're doing really well as saying present and i want you to talk about that. And how do you reset your mind. When you're doing such real estate and you're passionate about it. How do you reset your mind to soak it all in and enjoy. What god's giving you. Today i wanted work really hard for this dream at prayed for it on. It was a big deal to leave the previous career that i had to start this new career but like you said i had a vision of hands on mom. Meat sauce base. I was gonna do whatever it took to make that work. And so just in the moments. When i feel really over momma just thank you know what this is just a moment. We're all we all have them. Even we're living our best life. And i think this is just a moment and this is what i prayed for. I'm living mentoring live. The babies are only gonna be this little right now and time flies and just try to soak it up soak. It ended when things. Don't go the way they are supposed to go way. We plan which happens all the time. Even trying to have structured organization You know soon as something goes goes wrong at a duet moments of stress getting overwhelmed. But that i just stop and say this is just a season of life. I'm am in the season right now. Where are we thirty. Three in a couple of weeks and africa young babies at home and and this is just a time that really needs to embrace. Because i know. I'm going to miss it when i look back. I think that's such a good thing to hit on because we all like especially with social media were like. Oh my gosh. Like look at that person. Look what they're doing. Why am i not there in the near like will year at a different place than that. Minute is so important to be present especially at you know when they're little and and be okay with that you know. Sometimes i have that same struggle. So i totally like when you're talking. I'm like totally relating because i need to like have that constant reminder to be president. You're not missing out on anything that god has for you. That's what i remind myself. I remind myself onto things seasons. I love that idea of seasons of life. And also i also love it. I know what i have right now is from god and so i need to have a grateful heart yet and no matter what. I'm thinking the other thing. I've been really practicing. Which you brought out. Christon is is not comparing that is so smart it creeps into our brains and we compare in all these ways. And i'd have to stop. I like literally a self-talk. Stop it god gave you when he gave you be grateful. Yeah so tell us about your business. Where do you get your business from. How have you grown. I know you work with some wonderful people. You can tell us about that too now. So most of business. So far has come from by sphere. Really people that. I know but i do a lot of marketing on social media app. Been very honest with marketing. And that i'm the agent with babies you know. Include them and marketing and i. It's been great. Because i went out on a limb and wanted a career in thought sales in warnock's i thought you know i'm going to this shop and get my my real estate license. Don't know what all goes into like. Most people not what i can share houses anakin learn how to write a contract shirt. But i've got really lucky. That i really really really love it and i really do have a passion for it and so i think just being authentic about that and putting myself out there on social media has brought people from us fear you know in to me and so most of my businesses come from that and i do have a great people that i work with It was really important to me to. Have you know other moms that. Were around my age kids around my age and so great love it. Yeah that is often. What are you hoping for your future like. What are you building toward. Have you thought about that or you just kind of joint where you're at today. I think i'm gonna join where i'm at but i thought it would take me a little longer to get to where i'm anna was kind of surprised at business that i was able to do last year with the pandemic and i gave earth last summer and so i definitely want to keep thriving and want to continue to grow but i think i'm just kinda like wow did that last year if i could do that again this year i'm gonna be really happy. You know but yeah. I just wanna continue on this path on and really looking forward to seeing where the business takes me out love meeting new people at. I've met some great people that i didn't even know before says a whole new world from teaching. So it's it's been great. You should talk about your background in teaching. 'cause manjula always talk about how people who are teachers and then get into real estate do so while people that worked in the restaurant industry and getting Do so also tells like you were a teacher. In what made you decide to get into real estate. So i was a teacher for seven years. I taught first grade Not to say that. There weren't things that i didn't love about it. There were a lot of things that i loved about it. But i felt a calling to make a change. And on my father-in-law castaway thousand seventeen and it became really evident to a like. He loved what he did every day. He's loved to work every day. And i just feel like this pool toward something else. When i knew we were going gonna have more babies than that. I wanted to be that you know hands on mom like just this vision. I want it to be involved the breakfast and the lunch. The healthy snacks go to the park. But i had that vision of being a career career moment of ave that was able to continue to thrive and grow and so i felt like real estate Was something that would be good for me. Because i felt like i would be able to get out and talk to people more not something i wanted to do. I felt like i could take my kids with me. A lot and i do take it would be pretty creative with that But that's pretty much you know. That was a big deal. Because i had a retirement and i had went had a degree for teaching and i had benefit sin so it was dislike. I have no that disaster work. Basically i was like i have to be successful and i'm going to do whatever it takes. It's a lot the skill set of teaching. Because i was a teacher as well. A lot of that skill set totally translate. I mean now you're teaching adults about the process of home ownership and walking them through that process in helping them understand it so a lot of that. Just translate so well one being able to have the communication skills. I think whether talking to your boss or other parents with kids or whatever that communication skills and i think the organization you have to be so organized as a teacher that that was a huge thing you he's a. I am not chris. And i talk about all the time like if we could just think in a straight line for like two minutes it would be awesome. I have a question so you had that vision in your head of like you know able to like do the breakfast in the healthy snacks in like all that stuff. Do you feel like kay i. That's what i'm doing. Yes but i did go through phases where it was not so smooth So i would sit there sometimes. Thank and especially right. After i had the baby. I would sir thank you know. I want to be somebody that exercise every day. The kids and everything. So you know. But i wanna have healthy smoothies for them and i went through a period was like how am i going to do. This all have wandered you dishes. Do you not really dressed. Make at time so i know in the kids are on a great schedule but i know when they eat i know when they ask And i know when they snack and so at once. I started planning by day like that. In putting those things in those time slots than i was able to open up all the rest of the time for things. I need to do for work and back to time blocking if i work in the evenings or on the weekend. My husband is here to help And i have my mom and my mother-in-law lives close by thankfully so i have like listing appointment or closing. They're here to help me but other than that. During the day. I work with the babies. And so if they're in their highchairs having a snack that i'm on the computer. Don't doing things whether it's marketing or emailing We'll go show houses with me. I have great steps. That goes like if he's out of school because he's super super helpful but i have parked my toddler like in a stroller in the foyer of the house. Strap the baby armband carrier you know and of course like i said there are times where it doesn't go as plan. We've got dinner on the road and sometimes we'll go with me that In our whenever we just make it work but otherwise for the most part. I feel like i finally to the point. Where by vision is is coming through. That's one of the things that i that i heard. You say that. I think that a lot of moms don't understand how important it is like. I've always been a big proponent. When my kids were little they were on a schedule bed. At a certain time. A certain time naptime was naptime equals. They got a little older. Naptime lasted a long time. Like i don't care if you were just quietly in your room. There are those times in manage everything else while mental management too but manage everything else. That's going on in your life that schedule. It's time for them to. And they have their moments like we have more mole temper tantrums toddler moments. But for the most part. They're really well behaved. And i don't think without the discipline of the structure. I went able to take them with me. Do these things with them. You know that we do. And so yeah the the schedule. We very on top of schedule. Even bedtime whole bedtime routine. Were very much very serious about it. And they go to bed and then we get our town so i met with a girl. She's a she's a high producing real estate agent and she's pregnant. What she's six months pregnant with her first baby and i have coffee with her yesterday. And she's like. I just don't know how i'm gonna do like. She wanted to tell anybody she was pregnant. She didn't want anyone to think like. Oh she can't do it. She has this like really like strong core belief that like when she has kids like people aren't gonna wanna work with her. She's think about like when people bring their kids with them like in their clients. And i'm like women do it all the time so i can't wait to send this to her. I think it makes you more relatable. You know that. I can say i've had a lot of virus that have had kids the same age. And then it makes you more relatable myself. Pretty honest about marketing. I think everyone knows like now. State route zone houses. Bayonne on whatever it so i think so encouraging i swear there 'cause like there are so many women that are stuck going to a job where they're dropping their kids off at daycare all day in their hardly seeing them. So i think that this is such a great message from zahir like you can have what you have and it's real estate. I was very fortunate. I mean america works at the husband was able to provide for as just completely quit. Teaching made the transition. But i still would have done it anyway. It just would have taken me a little walker you know it. I would have saved up more for a longer period of time. Maybe i would have done roles. Stay on the side of the transition from teaching. And so you know. I don't want to say that it's impossible for all these other people out there and it's possible i'm just taken a different route but i still would have done it a hundred percent when i went into real estate. I was a single mom and with the baby. And i was like. I don't wanna be a single mom. So that's gotta teaching Vitamins and win. Wannabe up broke single. Mom but the other thing that i heard you say that we need to keep hammering home to the women who listen to this. Is you need to market yourself and showa as your authentic self yet. Each when you do that you're going to attract the clients that love what you're doing you know. If someone's looking at your social media are looking at your post and they just can't stand the fact that a mom would bring their kids on a showing. They're not going to contact you. Fine you don't wanna work with that person anyway so the people that contact you the people that like what. You're doing what they see ways. Which should we kind of wrap it up in. Talk about what your. What would your one piece of advice be to a mom. Getting into real estate. Has young kids. Like what would be your one piece of advice so radical advice would be to do the time blocking to figure out your routine figure at your schedule. Give yourself a grace inflexibility. The for when things don't go as planned that's going to happen. And i think just a positive mindset of knowing this season of life keeping that positive mindset that your babies are young that you could do it and you know. This is what you've worked for great orange. You're living your dream life than you know. Just do what you can't make the best of it. That's great i love that. Yeah i'm so great fault that you came on the show. I'm so grateful to meet you. I've got some exciting things we if you've been listening men hearing what's coming up here in chandler arizona on april twenty second and twenty third. Were having a whole moms in real estate thing.

I think is is is is the what for this season to thank you so much for being here again so i'm gonna go straight today's topic. Today's topic is are you happy. Let me think are you happy. Still fully explained. The title of this podcast. I'm to say story my. Ibm able to say this. Because i'm a release the retailer. But i pray that even as i said is there you go so to fully explain the title. Are you happy. And bruno have to say a story for you guys to truly understand what i mean by a you. Happy will be saying this story over five. Stop telling the story. I want you to ask yourself. Are you happy. I you happy see. There's a young lady is a young girl. i don't know. I can't remember how old she was a young young young girl I'll say she wasn't a high school just a young gil so there's a young girl. She had everything like she had seen gold. She had a mansion. She had everything. I can die. People of the world to see are will have lutheran is a give me happiness. She had everything she had seen. Gucci had popularity. She was wealthy. She was famous. She had everything like houses everywhere. 'cause everywhere she added horrible. She wasn't happy wayne. I still like really pay attention to details. Die because in district on things. I are really get sick from it. So does he. Oh had all justice issue had everything but wasn't happy and She this then found out that anytime she was away from all these things that she had. She go happiness like she felt happy. Just say she fell happy. She feel happy you anytime. She was away from oldest anytime that she words and before. I even go on again. This gal was a christian. And i would like to see the you know everybody. Most people that. I come in contact with the christians. Were one of the things that i've realized out of the holidays. Come in contact with that. Christians were actually how many of you send like seventy percent of them. Have more actually living a life decreased in so this gill was a crystal. She wasn't leaving. Live over creased anything that most would say that crystal were an only live library because they have not actually come to the consciousness of all the realization of what it means to be a kristen. They are chris stem. They've received jesus had lord on prisoners v. Yesterday have called. They are a member of god's family they have no actually combed the consciousness. No one was talking about last week. They have not renew john. My like we are not yet renewed their mind to the new life desk to think like the old self so the ano chain. Remember what i said as a my thinking so is just thinking like the old man not like. The new manda has made them to be so. Yeah that's how that's how you know people that are not to this scale. Christon was kristen. Bush wasn't leaving a life of each kristan to say she wasn't oh party in gwent club. Smoke in everything that you said i of the do she was didn't order. What atlanta anytime. She was in among all these things. She wasn't actually get that shoe satisfaction. Yes there is a temporal like before we go on to say the story of history. I want you guys to know that happiness is felt like. I can't find any part in the bible that talks about be happy. The baptism dozens bobby. Happy be joyful. Because you feel like you will not be happy to feel like and your feelings like things so many things you do con contract like was the so many things you do can actually affect how you feel so i was happy be joyful because even when things don't go right you have to be joyful. You might not be happy. You have to be joy funding joyful. Ibn job is the best. Like is even overshadows the happiness because happiness is felt so yeah i'm gonna continue so she felt happy when she did always a nimble stiff happiness. You felt was temporal. Was for little time because she was there bushland that she she just wasn't happy like she was sad. Because i one of the things. I now input with people who have all these things. You yvonne gold. You have well that you'd have. You have no like you cannot be sad you cannot like the black y you side you have everything. Just keep listen. I don't want to you the enemy. So before i start seeing the actress so yes you had everything and she was a christian as well She went to club. She smoked. Partied pushy wasn't she didn't get satisfaction like bushy lent that anytime she was away from all these things like putin smoking away from it and winter when she was in church our which was a moans off church friend since she had church friends as you had friends that she used to go out with two door into when she was away from church and know smoking with tusk friends. She didn't get the happiness she didn't. She didn't feel that there was something missing. But when she was in church amongst our church friends away from oldest thins she found. She felt something different. You felt happiness. She felt something that she couldn't explain. You remember i. I believe are. What's you know. Bobby says you know goes on even temple me by human hands. But i believe what that symbolized in when she was in prison when she wasn't you stations in the and i believe that yes could leave in a beauty of bahia. Honda goal is there because two or three a gal in my name. There's more than two or three day and good his day so even and isn't even about god. Being the church i go this every way kabul i believe that what does symbolize like. When she was in when she was in church was actually independence overload. Rabat's in the fullness of joy you know she felt joy she felt something mc she felt joy. I'm i know i'm going to try and use my words very very. I'm willing to try and use. That movie city city was very well. Like you know. Happiness and joy buna. Actually i emphasize on china is something we'll use our. She felt happiness. Why knew when she was when she was. She felt she realized when she was in court. And i'm on a belongs. How church friends. she felt. Happy feel joy filled something obviously tent along the line. You realized i wish actually felt was joy. She felt joy. And the thing is that. Like i was saying elliott like people feel people see and i'm just gonna say he actually doing anything like it may not be too but i don't like the fact up because she feel like because she thinks somebody has everything you think is happy so carrying on jihad. Everything as i won't forget to this gets. Are you happy. She had within had a fringe like she's she smoked scales. Much gives there was living the life. Bush wasn't happy for. She lands that when she was in waived from this thinned she found happiness. You found joy bush. She couldn't explain this gala. This was a christian bush's actually come to the cautiousness of immense to be a christian. And the reason why. I want to talk about this podcast. This title are you happy. Because i remember he was having a party on On this party they're mixed people. They will christians. You know was a party so not like was like you get together like oh this was was a get together and you know in the parts of the people that were doing things on one of my one someone on on. I really respect there. That became together would like The my outing jolly life. But it should be told you are not living life. And i believe that all these things like all these wealth like well of riches mansion's always in the temporal. Chew up. these are true happiness. Joy comes from god so this girl didn't one of these. I want to emphasize is wealth. Cannot give you happiness because his temporal your your happiness accountable open because when you have money be happy waiting to have money besides but i know how a christian christine should work so this go had all she had all but when she was when she was a week from this thing she found things because she lent out when she was away from this team which was way for more this all she had she found joy she actually stayed longer from long. I read from things that she likes to sit along from. The mansion will participate long because she liked. She liked how she felt because she says she flew in for church meetings and retreats or get together. We had church fan because she knew that when she was away from what is what she had wasn't happy she wasn't happy she stay longer. We aren't you spent most of our time in church now. I believe that was turned working. Eventually these let everything that she had she left. Everything left the van gogh. She actually left it all behind and she had to new land so to see reach went to numbness in iran. She went to new land and she started had to start over one of these. I would like to see is having which is is not the problem but depending on riches for happiness is the problem. I was trying to find the title of this. Podcast bausch and say should i say are you joyful bums. Now i'm gonna tell you happy because then as happiness is felt. But there's no pattern. But i don't think i found him to see i didn't think are found anybody that talks about you being ruptures be joyful because regardless of how you feel biopsies be joyful godless and his joy comes from the lord joy. True job i was in the presence of the lord there is fullness of joy in the parade is joy homes because says even count it all joy way. I'm prosecuted like when do you are you happy when it is between your flogging you know but by his choice job i was eating with joist in the low always enforced. Because there's that that tests that nearby sometimes the word boya he says rejoice in the lord always again i see rejoice i will say rejoice like we joys is not based on how you feel. I being joyful is not based on how you feel because regardless of how you feel you. Rejoice the my pastor my pastor's away stays that you know we should always be should have sessions of joy like shouts announced criminal. You know people attempting that we are mad which one on my just happy. this is. You have sessions even when you body doesn't even feel like standard bambi joyful like when everything around you seems like oh gosh. Everything is drowning our standard. Because rejoice anyone ticks closer to your answer so yeah. This goes away from auditions. She like run away from this and she realized she got joy she got joy she found true happiness and she didn't have to have because the thing that i i realized from. This gal is our shows depending on this happiness. And there's depending on sin for happiness or someone about. I don't think he was depending on is that she didn't have christ. And that's it. And you might feel like i. I don't go like i have infinite. I need as before in this world otherwise when my committing suicide because all this happening because that is the temporal for god himself is fixed. God is the only one that is fixed. God is fixed like even times seasons chain times. Change the way that changes you know. Months change tied dave change bought within that remains the same as gourd. You don't depend on all these things for. Which is you don't depend on if you think that. Go into clo- and smoking's going to give you the happiness that you won't. You're not get the happiness i believe. They're in heavy human being is the pa has feel the love of god and because people doing when known. They tried to few void. Something else and you cannot feel out for something else. This girl when she left everything she had. She found court and she found joy. She realized that she didn't have to have everything to be happy where she had to have scored like when she had coach had everything and she in like. I said she run away. From what is not. I was wondering what she left out. We and she went away on them. She realized that she was happy. And i was like the happiest year she has. She has decided ovalles game. She's she had to working. She had like too many jobs. You had jobs and everything like the she wasn't even imagined anymore. You have the 'cause hauser you have the you know the prince popularity anymore bushy whereas all those things no matter but what we didn't matter was having gored by your side because it is true or like because you find happy because all these things you think we think which is who make you happy as which is is good because is not real. Wealth is notable low of monies to all have like he's the love of like depending on for happiness cannot get happiness from all. These people are conscious that i reached the are not actually happy. They're committing suicide. If you have god it would depend on god. I have those stint perfect. But you have this. I'm happy. No that is that is not a disguised elected over behind and she found core found true happiness. She's she's working now. She's trying to get the ansbach again but she found happening. That was the happiest year. Overlap hunches to live in the happiest over life. So i'm here to accede to the are you happy penises. Temporal are you happy. I you the opinion on all these things give you happiness. I you depending on these new. Like i said like the every every part every human being has a partner that should be fuel to like lower. Gord everybody's time out. There was a season of my life. Where i felt so sad. Like i just wasn't happy. And i realized that anytime. Oh it'd be nosy adding feel happy or when.

Welcome back to the nightly news. I am filled joining me as always is Christon. Hello Hey that's right but we're back after two weeks because got it right wing annual and we got two more episodes of tighten the talk about the thought. I know I know I have. I have accepted. People were full of. Why what did you want to get to I? Yeah so all right so yes this week we got night wing annual to which filled in that. Yeah you know what happened right after shot in the head until we saw their lengthy pretty much it it was worth it it was it was good. It makes it makes the makes Amnesia. Not as annoying. I mean it gives you reason kind of white Dick is like running away yes exactly exactly which as soon as it's as soon as it started started like as soon as he was talking with Dr and it was like it wasn't a surprise with almost as soon as the thing started is definitely the out the quarter hours house doing it but it lays out very well? It's a good issue. You can definitely see that there will clearly be light at the end of the tunnel that he will remember for all of his all his stuff. Any I mean comic book signs. I don't really know how you can make it so after traumatic brain injury. Someone remembers some stuff but you can prevent them from remembering other stub. I really hope that it's comic Book Science and not someone that R- something that real scientists could do because that makes thanks very afraid but it works. It works really well. Yeah I think I appreciate US Comic Book Science. It's I don't think they can. Anyone can edit specific memories at at this point but I think the Juergens has finally I finally got like a regular writer on this. I mean before member. They're going through writers and raiders. And I think it was just so just messed up and choppy because they go through the different writers every three to six months. Yeah Yeah and actually it makes it. y'All I said it just makes it less annoying. It has a purpose now. I mean I guess people who are wanting will presumably have read the episode like spoiler oiler alerts the reason his members up a quarter of our did it on purpose so that they can make him their talent. It's not it's it's not really that surprising I wasn't blown away like wow. I never saw this coming but it makes a lot of. It makes a lot of sense. It's a development. Ed Yeah definitely it means Yet when it means that when it's time for his memory to come back he'll be back in an a and hopefully when his memory comes back we can get some like nice moments. I really hope we can see some sort of moment. where he gets his memory? Back with Damian. Because you saw from the it was berry I mean Damien doesn't always deal with his emotions in the most healthy way. Of course neither does Bruce when he punched that wall at the hospital. Outside Man Classic Bruce but I think the Not Remembering is really. It's really hurting Damian. So I hope we get some sort of thing with them afterwards where we I think. The Dame's worried in the aliquo said he he he won't show the world you it's like it's like come on grace and get your memories back for everyone else for father's sake not mine. I don't care but I like and I thought that was nice. 'CAUSE you're Damian. Does I really have a connection with Dick and really has to be hurting Damian. That doesn't remember him. Particularly because Damien so Damian so young. It's like yes so anyway. I hope we see some sort of resolution then Resolution with that. But I do like that. They do that taming stuff in because I think he he actually bonded more with Dick Than Bruschi notes. That time Bruce was supposedly dead right. Yeah I mean it was kind of hard to tell uh-huh because time differently but yeah it was kind of like Damien POPs up in two weeks later bruce dead or something. I mean maybe not quite that quick but yeah. He didn't get a lot of time with him. I mean yeah but Yeah I love. I think this might be my favorite store. You Know Amnesia issue so far don't yet Definitely definitely yeah And it does a good job like they're doing a good job with the court of owls because sort of like rich creepy the people trying to control the world. I mean it's overdone I'm I shouldn't say it's over. It's overdone 'cause rich creepy. People will probably are controlling the world. But it's not super it's not super original. It's yet but they're doing a very good job building up building up the corvallis because you you know as soon as those people appeared in the circus like those are not really their relatives like that they are not those those are those are fake relatives. I know I was just like. Oh that's kind of incidental in a part of me wondered. Actually it was a fake memory on But I think it but I did really. I think it did really happen. I mean yeah I mean it could have been even a again. It could have been a big memory so the the only ones air were Dick and his parents and their long dead so but then when they were like pulled their masks on yeah that makes me that makes me think it was Israel about the only thing I was a little bit like on is him saying something about is how it was. None of that was parents. Weren't calling Dick and that seems weird because they always have in the past it seems like why. Why would you start going by? Dick is soon as your parents. Die If it wasn't what your parents called you. That just doesn't seem him to make sense that your parents would die in your life would change and you'd be like also call me by a different name. I mean unless again. That's more editing by the owls. Just Donald l just the night could be troll like you're not every man Dick Grayson you know. You need a more royal name like Richard. That's right there have event three King's name Richard. There have been no kings dig. I mean I guess. Actually there've been three kings named Dick but they didn't go by that water thing. So Yeah Great. If I I mean for once we actually have a plan for a I think the Juergens has a hold on this Amnesia thing and we know it's coming to an end and but also it helps explain why his family hasn't been around and why they are. We're trying more getting back on track. I mean now that does it totally work because Barbara has showed up Alfred of showed up at a At the bar but in terms of like hand wavy plot will stuff. That often happens I would say in in comic books. Economy helps explain because the woman like slips him out like she doesn't signed him out she because she knows he needs for the owls knee. He needs to stay away from his family. So I mean at least it gives it gives a reason why Dick would be running from them and not try to give this a chance with his right. Yeah 'cause I mean it kind of falls apart yes alfred. I'm Barbara could drag him down Brazil Damien of course contract also. The guy was living in blood even before he got Amnesia and he goes back to blood haven of the so now that surprising. But you know like I said hit weighty. Yeah just got to do what you got it what you need. Yeah I'm with you. This is by far and away one of the Best Amnesia issues because it explored explains why he's acting so weird and why he's not his a greater we want him to be and it's a good reason why he's not a decrease in we wanted to be as opposed uh-huh suggest Mr Sinatra but I it's a comic book so it's like sometimes sometimes you can have a great story in the art can kill it. I like the art to Travis. More than the inside Sop. The juergens himself drew the cover. I mean freight on. Oh yeah yeah and I like that I mean I know I think part of rebirth was like whoops. We messed up trying to make the time line consistent with new fifty too but I like that I liked it. Dick was very clearly a little kid. in that Thanksgiving memories so that he still would have been a kid when he went to bruce anything kind of like that undefinable kid age like I duNNo. Is The eight nine ten eleven twelve. Who knows does want him to be awfully he somewhere in there? These elementary school just laid elementary image. Right but yeah. That was good. I just wanted to throw out honorable. Mentions no night link that manual for basically. The bunch of like Short Batman like early Batman stories like told through the Eyes Elfriede could psych journal entries or whatever. And that's good. That's good too. Yeah and I. And its annual must be like pre Robin Young I think yeah well now kind of jumps around because there is a scene scene where they're just like there was one where it's like. Oh Yeah Tim. Tim came back on the anniversary of his father's death or eat out. Yeah but it's mostly some of the stories some of it's so weird 'cause like it's like Obama and had this adventure this adventure somewhere like pay only pay too long summer only couple panels but yeah I mean I. It's it's a good little one in done. Sounds good that issue too. It's bigger because it's a black label. Heart Lean number two our arts great stories great but the only the problem I have is like they're kind of probably because of the movie and everything they're kind of like romanticizing the joker and I'm just like yes see. That was something that I always thought was is a good was a good take in particular when it was in the children's show whether the episode Harley Ivy which is amazing Somehow how I was like. He's a terrible guy he's abusing you as it did a pretty good job of showing the the difficulties of being that kind of a relationship because he wanted joker wasn't always terrible. You know and she loved him and that makes it hard to but you shouldn't be romanticized. Like job is not a good guy. Yeah yeah I I mean if the origin so you got I guess you have to do it. I mean just like if the RT everyone in looks good in this. But I'm just like they're just like making the joker. Will you know a little more boy band. This you know just like more attractive active and I'm just like The beginning to get her to like him he has to be more attractive. So who is it goes along. What else like Charlie was saying? This morning goes maybe be. They'll reveal the you know. Maybe this is more. The Harley's is so yes telling me that will be fair. So yeah those are some pretty pretty good books from DC this week Nice. What's up what's up with drake? Is he still. I don't think there's been another issue of young justice asas yet so I don't know okay okay. So he's still wearing his ups alpha in as far as I know nobody said like that says is minute nobody said anything about it in. We'll he's kind of cut off from the rest of the bafflingly right now isn't he. Yeah we'll there yeah. Him and young justice are Kinda like lost in the multi-diverse so yeah yeah there's like you know okay. But that's not the only book he said right now. Yeah Yeah Okay Okay so far. So yes and no one's had a chance to say anything Gossipy who owe the name turn drake now. I hope they write issue are all right. We're GONNA talk some Titans Gaylon do it. All right got two episodes pike. Let's start with. Let's start with Jericho because I was a good episode. It was going to say predictable but I mean going in we I have talked about. Surely that there's going to be something where it's because digging. These guys are a hero. It's misplaced. I'm going to say misplaced guilt. But it's not like Dick cut his throat or straight up murder Jericho and of course. That was what happened. Dick didn't you know actually kill Jericho so it was pretty cool predictable in that regard But Yeah Jerk Guy and I thought the episode was good. Your thoughts initially. Yeah I I had the same thoughts I mean. We knew something was going to happen in Jericho. We knew it wasn't GonNa be Dick's own hand the kills me. He tries to save Dick from death. Stroke Okay and we. You know you knew Dick wasn't gonna be the death stroke especially in this. Flashback as rob and you know when the beatdown comes in from his night wing for sure together. Yeah so I thought it was a good absolute auto then I read some. IMDB's reviews where people were kind of like why did destroy after he stemmed is on. What I need to Stab Robin right then? I was like okay reasonable point. They're also like if death stroke. Oh can had made that comment. I could hear you breathing than why can't a like here. The gerbils behind him and so I think the main lesson is always always look before you stab 'cause end so the more I thought about it it was. It was evident that it was kind of going to be contrived. It's like my initial reaction was just like okay. Thank God I'm accepting this because titans is a little bit darker interpretation than I'm used to Ed even though Oh I was like there's no way but actually murdered him. I won't lie. A small small Parmi was like what if they seriously dig actually murdered Jericho so as soon is it was obvious that he did not so. I think that may satisfied but it is a little bit like okay. Yes that's awesome Jericho throwing himself in front and it makes sense but also like why you know what a stroke night just stab in not look great. He was damning. Yeah I mean I out of the two. I like this episode better. I mean there was some good stuff. I mean like when Jericho leaps in the Hank thank and makes them dance. He's like wait. What did you do? Why did I through my growing up? Yeah I mean overall the episode was great and I thought Oh God like good but I can't but then I went online and I saw some people kind of quibbling with hell jared. A district ended up killing Jericho now. Okay I can I can see that I think I felt like it's kind of one of those hand wavy things again. The kind of you know it doesn't entirely make sense that like on the surface make sense with Oh the court of owls psychiatrist slip or neuro neurosurgeon. She slipped dig out the back and he's been lost to his family that makes sense but on the other hand. No it doesn't make sense because you can find anyone. How could he not find it when it goes back to the exact place lexi was living before I felt was that way? When I'm watching it I was like caught up? Only Gosh this through robin any ended up seven Jericho. Who is such a good guy? The he threw himself in front of Jake. Presumably assuming that my dad won't stab his own son which turned out to be wrong But then once you kind of like okay. I can't see how that you know. First glance make sense. But you you know as comic book nerds. We like to quibble. I can't understand how you've cooled with. Yeah and I mean to think it's like they're both flashbacks so it's Kinda like okay. A here's where we're at so we kind of have to fill in the middle there really any. No I mean just the the nature fiction. It's Mike yet. They can't beat him the first time or as a story you know just stop has to happen which I get to because then the second episode atonement. But I'm I'm just I'm just like really everyone's GonNa walk out on Dick Except regar- everyone no no one's going to be like it's an accident especially that scene. We get with tank and dawn later when they're blamed for the death of a child. I'm like they're not gonNA. They're not like Oh. Hey so yeah hold on though. You're jumping ahead. It just angered me though anything else about until mint told me about your no. I mean it was good even though we knew what was going to happen but I liked it. They came clean. was that Jericho knew what he was getting. Jericho knew what he was. Getting into which that's actually one thing that kind of leads me into something? That was commenting on an atonement. That is maybe a bit of the show as it's been going as a whole that I didn't realize I had it's all of a sudden Babbitt base which is why are they not fighting crime more. It's like they're only ever working king on this one big project like they're never going. We never see them going on control or like Didi not muggers something because now jumping to atonement. Ah Yes we definitely need to talk about your purse thing but you know when garments mentioned conor will once everybody sees what we're doing here. They'll know they have to come back. That's not a direct trek will but that suggests and it's like absolutely one hundred percent Dr. You're on you're on top of it but I think part of the problem is we haven't seen what they've been doing. That will help. Everybody realize it's like we're being Maybe because I'm grading student papers involves like show me. He don't just tell me but I feel like they're just telling like just regard telling us we're saving the world we're like Oh you're saving the world but we have actually seen them be saving there. Were like making a difference in San Francisco and I kind of wish we'd seen that then we'd have a better sense because I feel like if you I mean surely everybody who watches the show like no stuff about these characters. Really need the backstory. But if I was pulling someone that didn't know they would probably be like on. Are you taking Jericho in. Why are you taking rose in like? Why are you taking these kids in to this place and trading them like we know? Oh yes. You're doing it because you need a place where you can be yourself and what you can use those powers for good but we're not actually seeing them use those powers for good and so now it just feels like uh hanging out in this apartment. I just think yeah I mean Jericho I mean they. Basically kid dictates came out and said He. He's thinking you know it's like under child of that strokes against an old and we'll garth thing. I think he was telling that the Connor I think I don't know if you've tried to convince Connor and maybe himself it's like Oh yeah we're heroes worse we save the world even though we haven't done much except for like try going to death stroke right. Well that's my that's my thing. Is I think that I well. Yeah I thought about it that I think I think what I'm saying is is right. I just wish that they had shown them more. I mean I guess part of it is. They're like still have costumes. But why couldn't there have been in the you know them taking Out You know them going out on patrol does like you know punch a few muggers or something so that they could see so. The kids could see more. Whether do I guess that's kind of the one weird thing about the show is every time you had a group of titans you know. Look they know why they're coming together like we're coming together to fight crime so they get together and they immediately start fighting crime if that crying. I mean even if that crime is they were helping the teenagers of patents corner get their clubhouse. You know like we're getting this guy who's menacing small new England town. That's Super Low. Oh steaks or kind of thing. They're always finding crime and they haven't really shown them do we that in the in the the show. That's that's the problem with some of the modern like live action superhero stuck. It's like they don't want to be his campaign that's fine. I appreciate that but then it's it's like it seems like they go to slow Oma sometimes. It's like okay. Here's what we're going to be. Here's what we're going to be. Here's what we're going to be like. WHOA we're already like over halfway the way through season two? Let's see it already right. I'm like I know I'm impatient. That get the neethling. But it's like okay. Were you know. Were were racing towards the end. The season two. Let's see let's show what's what you're you know. What is the end? Yeah you know yeah I would love to you know like I said. That's probably be a cliffhanger season. He's into is him putting the suit on for the first time but I would just love season three to open up just like this fully formed team you know actually going after a threat. Maybe they fight black backfire right well so yeah. Let's go with the had I would say. Let's let's start the beginning of the episode and talk it out the hidden and because who there's a lot going on and some of it I thought was pretty good and then something that I was slang. It was the same thing. You're like. What about us? So yes the be the beginning. So details thing. Yeah and everybody in in everybody everybody freaks out. I mean I of course understand rose freaking out It's a it's her brother Jason. I guess it kind of fits. It's with Jason's care. You know he kind of thing But Yeah Gar I definitely I'm like a non-confrontational tation Person So I definitely would have been on team team. I definitely would reacted like guard. Like oh that's great apologize. Let's let someone autozone Dick side Ya'll's climate I think star fire was as well. I mean starfighter. Yes I mean she left. Jeff this is but I mean survivor comes from warrior culture. So I think she probably would have been like. Yeah whatever happens. Yeah I feel like I mean it makes sense with rating ratings. You know she's in the leg Moody Teenagers Stage of Life so that so so that works And Yeah I mean I guess I'd I'd like I knew as soon as you started walking up like hanging face. I know that that's just hit me too. I mean that's who hank is I I saw. That's all walking toward sick and I was like. Oh are we supposed to think he's GonNa like Punch Dick but you know maybe we'll give them a hug or something like Oh. We're going to surprise us any punch dig up like oh absolutely absolutely Yeah I mean I thought it made either way they would have done it. I thought it made it makes Sense but yeah I guess I don't know weird because a Jericho's death is it's kind of weird because Him saying like he died trying to trying to save me. I don't know yeah I guess because I mean Jerko could make his own decisions and to I mean all those original pines. It's like you were here. You knew this kid was right yes so on the one hand I understand because they all have their issues and I understand them being mad and walking out but yes I do think well I mean because you know oh ray are Rachel you know when she was in the car with Donna Palm too. I can't remember her but she was like. It's your I mean she basically said like it's Foale to And so yes I would say that Dick is most most guilty because I think it was his idea and then of course like yes us. Jericho was killed. Trying to protect you But that's I mean I I guess I feel like the the thing that you should feel more. The worst thing was assigning to go after through his through his family but then like once told Joey. Thirty suits me a coupon joey. 'cause like with a call I know L. so But once you tell Jericho like what's what's up what you were doing any decides. He wants to be a tight. He wants to be Italian yeah I don't think it's as I don't know I mean I guess they're mad because the one they're in I guess the thought is like well if you who had been if I guess yes if you had been there he wouldn't have had to save you from DETRO- It'd be brought the whole team. That's true that's true but I didn't know if It was coming because he just saw Donna. Like all like all ripped up My thought I guess I don't know if he was thinking I need to like get District RV was thinking. I need to make sure districts not gonNA do anything a two to Jericho Because I thought he went by himself because he was trying to protect the rest of the team. I I think that too. I guess I'm wondering if they they also think that was bad. I mean you betrayed your trust but like is he going was he going. Because he's like I know our District's GonNa be and this is my chance to You know get him or was also part of it. This is where I think it's difficult because I feel like if this had happened happened in the comic books like Dick would be running to meet the person Or like somebody on Sunday from a titans team would be like. Oh snap we we know. One of us is going to be meeting individually with desktop. We need to go for tech and make sure districts not doing something bad to that person like because district just almost killed Donna. Is he going to kidnap Jericho. Is He gonNA like. What the what's he going? What's he gonNA do mm-hmm so I bet I guess or was Dick just going because he's like I know Jessica are nowhere district is going to be? I WANNA kill you no punches lights out or whatever whatever. Maybe it's a little bit. Maybe it's a little bit Maybe it's a little bit both in I know I said I think last time I thought rose was the trader but now I'm starting to think what if it's dawn because Don's the one she keeps you know she was telling Dick. Oh Be Batman be Batman also. I could see this totally being a Batman in the whole death. Stroke thing in Jericho being a Batman. Movie that she'll quite you know then she's like all mad at him and stuff. I don't know though because she got something that freaked her out too. Well well she can always play up that too. I mean I I just wonder Ida Hawk Pankin Dawn. I mean hangs always the one that you know that the has the quick temper and you know he's always known as the hothead so I mean there's anyone suspecting dawn right that's true that's true. Well an hank he is taking it harder than than than than dawn is Because obviously group said well she pushed him. I mean as she pushed in Hank maybe keep that chaos going because member. She was going up by herself and she told the man to Quinton. Then she went was what is going on cost you by herself and then you know she they keep run into the power and back and forth. Yes so yes on the one hand. I didn't understand why hi everyone why most people left if they hadn't I would. I guess I should have known that they would have to have drama. A AW in something would have to something would have to have have to go on Yeah I mean the thing with joining dead mostly mostly. I just wish that they're like secret stuff. This stuff that like made them all angsty or whatever was just because they just they. You just aren't darker and more manipulative than they are in the comics. Like the reason districts going after them. Okay I guess he got the contract but then like a is kind of partially their fault and that's just not who they are in the comics like that's not why district with going after them in comics like in the cotton makes his older son grant took on contract to die to get the titans and then green died but the times had nothing to do with that like died because the body modifications the high gave him backfired. Or whatever and death. Stroke blames the Titans for that that makes sense. I mean I understand. You want to have someone to blame so you have like. Ah Miss Misplaced Guild. Like I understand Jericho's mom adeline being like mad mad addict and I thought her speech was made a lot of sense. I mean is like not directly difficult. Like they didn't kill him but I mean definitely like disagreement mom. Yeah of course I won't be super pissed at the at the titans at titans as well But yet they're just yet like they just have a darker. I mean whatever it works but they're just a darker group. It's darker bag story in this. Like a quite as well I I mean I I and I by adeline being man. I wish if you're like they are in the comics. Yeah I get her be mad at Dick for her son's death. I doubt it's like I know he's her husband. But slade slade shares. No responsibility for that. She's just you know he's sitting in her house on this like I don't blame him at at all I don't know would that like maybe yeah. That was kind of yeah. I actually thought that when she opened up door it was going to be. Rose and Jason I thought it'd be something like. Oh maybe Jerko jumped the body or something. Oh well then that was another thing that somebody said on on TV. They were like why didn't Jericho jump into de Strokes Body. Now's like that's interesting but I'm wondering if he can't because of face thing if like you have to see their actual is Or could be or could he be trapped in depth strokes body. I don't know isn't that what happened. In the comics I think occurs of some point. Yeah he was like he was stuck indefinite did kill him in the early nineties in. Oh yeah yeah because he was possessed by like evil demon thing. Yeah and the Titans Hunt. Yeah anyway okay. So yeah it does make sense in also doesn't make sense that everybody left I did crack me up. I thought August made a lot of actually I did like the Gar stuff in this episode. I was glad for the episode. It felt like we finally got got a little more attention like he deserves because he is a sweetheart and how what. Dick why are you leaving. Everyone else loves air go. You can stay I thought I thought that was hilarious. Good point and then and he was so funny with his little start a log when he was the only one in charge. That was that was funny and like us. He was on the first day. And then like I feel you there. Are I mean just the characterization at Dick this episode I just didn't like because it's like he wouldn't leave Gar there by himself. It's like Oh hey cleaning clean all this up you know. Take care of Connor Cobra City needs to. I'm just. I was just like if anything if they wanted to leave. I think they could have had someone come be with Gar just thought. Oh Hey kid. Yeah you're on your own. Yeah well I guess we can chalk it up to obviously he is an. I don't know if this will play. But obviously he is still not in his best mental state. Yes I know at the end of the episode. That won't before Jericho it was like. You Know Brew Eighty Bruce and then as soon as he started to tell Jason They have bruce go way blake mental. Health does not work like that. You aren't feeling so guilty that you will lose the nate your father figure and then as soon as you confess your all better better they adjusted doesn't mean but maybe it doesn't comic books but maybe that's maybe that's what you're saying. Yeah I mean that's the only way I just the ending. I didn't play because Dick was after adult-onset. She wasn't going to forgive him. He went to the airport. He's going to buy a ticket the Greenland. They wanted to get away from people but then I guess he decides let's just like seen like beat some security guards you can get thrown in jail right. Yeah so I would say I thought it was I kind of yeah. Yeah so either setting up so yes he went. Death stroke is like I'm going to feel like that's why I wanted there to be more more of showing them that we're kind of hit me. Was this episode of them. Patrolling or whatever because Dick didn't reform the titans to get death stroke and I think a lot of people I think a lot of the old titans are under the impression that he did but I thought that unless I'm wrong but I thought that he took the kids to the place in San Francisco because he was like you guys have powers and and you can help it so you know. I thought that he wasn't necessarily reforming the titans. It's not like he wasn't doing it to fight death stroke. He was doing it to help the kid help the kids out. And that's why I thought it would have been nice if we've seen a little bit of them patrolling like racked Patrolling or something because then it would emphasize more that the times were restarted. Started to give these kids something to do with their powers. Death stroke came in afterwards right because they didn't reform to the bite death stroke they reformed industrial with raw. Yeah no I think yet. Don't think death stroke cares. I think he's like the he doesn't want anyone so he's just like like what he says. Because Jason's at the titans are back that yeah he did it out. Yeah Yeah I just wish that they had been showing the titans like doing other crime Iran stopping thing so it'd be more obvious because like I said I'm pretty sure you know yet. Jason made that comment in district starting to gear up up but had no in his head like oh death stroke is going to gear up. I don't even know if he really knew said that You know on a You'd be so you taking the kids they are to you know do something good to like. Kind of be Bruce but hopefully better Take them so yeah. That's why I'm just trying to head cannon that Bat ending some dislike is Dick turn himself in jail. So it's like he's he's trying to still shows death stroke. There's you know there's no way I can reform the titans I'm in prison. You know so I thought it was kind of cool actually with Of the first part with the cops with Connor finding the cops I was actually kind of like a slightly impressed That DC would wade into exile racing think of DC is being like very conservative. Risk Averse. Because you know there could jillion dollar company but I thought it was kind of cool. Actually that connor was like saving a guy who was being arrested was being arrested like kind of a nice odd that just because someone's being arrested jaws it mean they're bad guy so I thought that was kind of Grin. We don't actually know that guy is or is not a bad guy but I thought just like gesturing toward that putting putting it out there. I mean they could get around. The two wasn't like connor was like you know. Screw the COPS is. He's getting flashbacks. When the was the cadmus troops came for insult? Like that made that made sense in you. Know and plus owner can go. I mean it's not like you can hold connor encounter encounter in jail in. You know it kind of made sense although it's not like that is happening anyway Yeah that that kind of made that it kind of made sense and I felt like Oh yeah. There's a way that we can figure this out just by like Congress not I mean. Connor is a real person. But it's not like he has an identity is not like they. We know who they're looking for. It's just like some white dude. Well like news millions of white dude like going down like that seems that whoops Sort of thing and you know it makes sense gars offering doubt but that's something that's like kind of easily fix relatively speaking but yet then when I so I thought yeah my best guess is yes when de Stroke was like you took my family although it's like you still have a daughter in your wife but whatever well will ex wife I think anyway like I get it. Done stroke does get super upset that he stabbed his own kid. I would be too so he's got to be angry at. There's somebody else. Dick makes cut. So yeah I understand being like you have a family or I will kill them all. Yeah Okay and so I do think indictors Like runway. That does kind of make that kind of makes sense for for the character. Sometimes stuff like that has happened in in the comics before Dick spend like. Oh look on toxic. I need to save my friends and family by running away. And they're like no we rather have you than be safe kind of thing so that Kinda made sense but yet then going to greenland. I think they want us to think 'cause you saw God with calling him and I was like Oh maybe he'll pick up the phone and realized Garni to tell do that but yet then so I was like yeah. Ed Don't go to Greenland. Yeah instead he goes in like punches the NFL the bleep episode ended. And so. Yeah I guess that's my best guess With you is maybe he was like no even if I go to Greenland. I'll all still be tempted to help people out so I or maybe he was like I'm responsible for Jericho's goes death and I need to be. I think that was his. I think that was his atonement. And then I think plus he was showing death stroke. Hey Ahmad up anything on my brief forming a team. I'm in jail but I want it now. I didn't like I'm like I'm like if Dick was. You know our Dick Jake if he would actually was going to do this. Don't you think he at least would have called garn be like hang on. I'm coming back. You know either. You know call Bruce and Alfred or calls you know. He just wanted to go out in the cold by himself. Yeah the only thing I think of as I understand like atonement I can't you know so good I can't Do this like I need. Yeah I can't even go to Greenland 'cause I know I'll be drawn bags so I have to be in jail. I can't can't get out to form a team. I just don't like that. He like actually did something they could get you thrown in jail. I mean 'cause member when the whole thing happened with blockbuster he just like he was like oh I killed him. You should throw me in jail and amy was like. You didn't pull the trigger like A. I know I felt like he should've Gone San Francisco in like turned himself in and like I'm responsible As opposed to like pointing post like punching someone. Yeah that's one doesn't but Sunday's pretty screwed up mentally was loosened any bruce. I guess the thing that is to me is I'm like how are we going to work around that. That seems like kind of annoying wrench. Bruce Kits Amodu Joanna who knows maybe they'll remind us like. Oh yeah he's actually a detective back in Detroit. 'cause they're like that sort of fell off the face of the earth you know like shouldn't shouldn't you call. I mean the Detroit must be like the hell where is where is his guy time I know like we have ab after you like You know maybe so. I don't know if they'll be something like that. Like kind of like how amy who believes unfortunately dead was like Oh yeah he was working undercover will enjoy be like Oh yeah. He was working undercover fed. He had two point you for some reason. I don't know I just like how are are they gonNA work this out. Yeah I didn't I don't like how they portrayed in this opposite I was not I would say hey I was not negative about it As you are until the end and then I was just like I was confused otherwise I mean it wasn't the best episode but it wasn't well about one thing I did. I did like how how got introduced to black fire and it does give me hope that maybe the third season will be then in in space Or whatever it will be interesting to see. I don't know what's GONNA go up with jess stroke but apartments like welfare reform the team and then go fight fire on Tamarin district. Love no idea that the way for you to get your feet wet as a team in have to worry about being murdered by right district. Yeah so I mean that's what I do for season but charge I'd just I just I WanNa see more of the grace we know in law. My only thought so next the next episode is called. The order it was called fallen other thought was so death stroke so the district acts like he's kind of whatevs in like he's done that he doesn't actually want to kill them but I- pardon me kind of wonders is. Is that true for easy just by himself. Some time Because I get that he is most annoyed with Dick but it's a little surprising is also annoyed to a somewhat lesser extent With the other with the other one was like hanging the hanging dawn in Dan Donna. So I'm wondering. Is this going to be part of the thing that remember. They mentioned earlier. Oh He's GonNa have to pick them off one by one so like this he say to Dick you know yet you you know what I really want is for. You never have a family. Don't you know if you've ever started the times again. Out Kill you. And everybody is scattered to the winds. The fallen is he gonNa then pick them off one by one one by one an addict will realize oh uh-huh picked off one by one. I guess I better go. Fide does robe. He minute gushing again can be our finale. There's only four episodes lump you know doesn't look in the very tiny very tiny Thing on the on on the DC universe fallen it shows shows Gar. Doesn't somebody break into the tower. It looks like she. s somebody must be breaking into the the tower Wasn't mercy graves that it was okay. Because I was looking in and I couldn't tell well enough I was like who is that thought description somewhere. Maybe it's on the APP I have. Yeah it's The I think it said mercy seagraves breaks in the tower. So that's that lex coming for Connor Okay I saw this A lot of said nine so ten fallen inside the scripture here. Where did I see that? Oh maybe it was on DC universe but yeah I swear I saw awesome something. That's in mercy graves okay. We'll yes somebody who had definitely broken into Somebody had definitely broken in and I unlike Gar was finding them but they were. They were dressed all in black and our backwards backwards to us. So I wasn't sure I'll like who is that. Oh I couldn't tell an eighteen and have a description up yet okay. Yeah so maybe. That's I don't even know anymore. Aw did Punti net rent cop is really thrown me further makes no sense. I know I know I really the rest of the I was like. Yeah I get this so I dunno confuse rated running away from Don. What did you do I I was like with Donna it just that that seems so I left field that like ray would just go with. She does not donor that well. It's like but then she ran off the I know I know went off with Donna or I mean went off because you didn't really want to be with Donna. Yeah I like was going So yes so much. And you wouldn't everybody scattered to the winds too much looking up this description descriptions. I swear maybe was on the next episode. Maybe screens up and I am beans even while looked on the APP. And I'm actually on DC universe on my computer yeah Oh yeah fallen. The Titans Tower comes under attack by mercy graves it says DC universe on on my lap so okay so maybe they give you more detail detail on. Because I usually don't go to the website. Okay so sorry it says religion platens tower comes under attack by mercy grants. Oh that's it does all says well all right then there's a depiction of Gore side kicking someone. Okay okay. How interesting? Yeah I know I guess it made it seem like the Thing was wrapped up. I think is wrapped. 'cause eels like last season. They had that nuclear family and they kinda got wrapped up partway through the season. I th- yeah but it's death stroke. He's too big. I think they're gonNA I think they're killing time until like the last episode or two of the season in lung like I said cliffhanger going to be him put on the suit no right. Yeah that's right you can have until the end of that. So D- Yeah No. That's what I thought. It was the beginning of the episode and he would use it throughout route defeat. For here's it's probably more accurate but now because remember how they ended last season right. Yeah but that was because they cut it short right because they only had eleven episode. Oh yeah because the premiere of this season was supposed to be last. Season's finale so I don't know why they did that right because this season's thirteen episodes as opposed to twelve. Yes yes yes so. I don't know it was a budget. They I don't know but yeah I don't know if we should reconvene last week of November because to say the next I'll look in the next issue of might wing Issue Sixty six comes out November twentieth but the titans finale is the week after all right. The day after Thanksgiving I think yeah yeah. Yeah the twentieth Thanksgiving late Thanksgiving this year. Yeah we should probably yeah which probably wait to wrap it all up. Yeah Yes oh yeah. If it drops a black Friday. I wonder who maybe we can. If you have time under way we can do it either that afternoon that night be be topical Michael. You won't be out shopping all day. Well I mean I like I said they would do it that night or something. I don't like crowds. Everything online now Amazon. Yes so it'll be interesting to see what is happening. So should we wrap it up there. Yeah I think so. I don't think there's anything more to say except for the first time this season even. I'm like really confusing on satisfied. Because hosting most of the innings with cliffhangers been like. I know why you'd like I wish you hadn't because I hate that kind of thing but yet I also understand why you did that but this cliffhanger I'm like I I know season one. It seemed like they were kicking Dick around and then like season two. We've been almost seems like we building a mop. I'm like okay okay. And then the end of this episode. You know atonement seemed like they kick him in the face again. I'm like why did you do that. Right yeah yeah like I get mom the John was said. Oh we have to build them up up until he's not like yesterday in a good place so I was like. Oh he's making progress like is good even though Adeline didn't want except your policy which is her right and I totally get like. It's good that you did. It's good that you did that like you know. That's part of the twelve step program need to like make amends even if people are like screw are you at least you were like or recognizing I was wrong. Sort of thing so yeah. I was like and then Greenland failing when you came down again. It's like Oh we're going to quick no got four whereas we're all like you'll have four episodes left. Apparently they're all. Oh we have four. All episodes loves next episode. I mean what if it's an all gore episode. I Love Garbutt. It's like we're not gonNA show you what happened the Dick Grayson man. They probably probably will be. I mean. Hopefully they'll give. It was a little bit about everybody could. Yeah I mean what's Raven doing. Besides she just jumped out of a car and ran off into San Francisco although she have money. The Stephen No the city if she's sixteen years old seventeen. I Dunno like what Arosa Jason New aid but bright. We did you kind of forget. I did think that was kind of interesting And Yeah I mean I definitely think it was very obviously put in there. Oh by the people in the show to kind of like be something that could you know nudges the viewer kind of knowledge. The character is because Yes yes raven hops out of the car she says the Donna like you're you know you're guilty. You're guilty to As you went along with the plan to do that. And then yeah then when the sister of Ellis was all like brother. And then Hank like goes into this tailspin. Yeah I was kind of like I mean I would imagine that honestly the titans still kind of bear. They still bear more. It's not exactly parallel. Like they still are more guilty in what's happening to Jericho because they they because of the reason that they because of the reason that they went to him But yeah it's like dawn Hank you didn't. You didn't kill list list but yeah you can totally understand Hit their sister being super upset with you because Ellis is dead right because he knew you. That's not your fault. That's Dr Lightbulb. Or being a jerk and murdering Ellis but Dr Life not around anymore and you are Dr So yeah this is going to be mad at you. Yes so that was kind of good touch judge. I guess I don't know. They just need to turn the decrease in stuff around. They can be more aerobic. Yes that's got. Hey you got hank and everyone else. That'd be dark you know Kim US decrease in Hero we're well On. I just think in general the the gritty I know that's what I know. That's what they want. But unlike it's working out overall better uh this this season but there is still a profound lack of superhero wing. Like that's what the titans do. We need more are. We need more hearing 'cause they're still building the team. Like how many seasons is it going to be before we can just is like fight bad guys some say and get the team together and go stop black fire right yes that'd be that'd be great. Yeah and also when you're trying to stop people wear your costumes. What's even the boy of having them if you go out if I destroy wearing jeans and a Hoodie? That's the other thing I mean. He goes to death strokes wife and he says has oil. My Name's Dick Grayson. I'm like not even a fake name or anything. Well he knows district knows. I guess it's but he didn't know death stroke was there I mean He. Did he know for sure the wife do now. I don't know I don't think he really. They're very careless about their secret identities in this. Show why I mean it's just his secret to I mean Dick Grayson was robbing. It's like it's a hop skip. And a jump Bruce Wayne Sh- right. Yeah but the whole show. They have really not been that careful about their secret identities and their secret identities but yeah I guess Yeah No. That's the models it's live action all all these guys like their faces on camera. I guess but still with the yeah and I mean I guess. Do you think that's part of it. That is because it's live action so you do think that's part of the reason that they're not as in their costumes as much here. Owing is because of budgetary constraints could like an animated show. It doesn't really like your animating of it so it doesn't really matter. I guess if you're intimating fight senior of your animating like everybody sitting around having a heart to heart talk but I mean. I assume that it's cheaper to fill everybody sitting around having a heart to heart talk then everybody the people of it's quicker and easier greenock. Put everyone in their costumes. I guess but it's just like just seem mixed up seem so slow then I don't know I mean also if you're gonNA GONNA make us pay for thing that has these special shows on it. People are paying to see people are paying. I mean it's not it's probably not bother me as much the following you but it is but I was kind of like you have your costumes. Why are you just going out into the sewers season? Just I mean like like Jason went missing as Robin. You're not looking for Jason. Todd you looking for Robbins. So why are you all just out there like there's for look we're working ourselves up. Let's get August. She has managed there so wine so so look for us. Maybe they're too after Thanksgiving will will wrap up the titans season. We'll talk the next issue of night wing. which is sixty six? I believe So e mail us what you're thinking about titans let us know what you're thinking about the comic book Capes Lunatics at go dot com call. The end of the month Phil will be filled with satisfaction because he will finally got night wing and

"This is mackenzie dairy. And i'm a sales groundless. Egg services and larimore north dakota. We're pleased to bring you this updates and the rhetoric farm network see it just i- services providing solutions for your success. Farm news on the red river farm network. I'm john wick with randy koon and we'll have an update from megan overby as well. There's some light rain showing up on the radar this morning. There's a line of showers that extends from the south dakota nebraska border north approaching aberdeen. Rain is also being seen east of the valley city area this morning and some spotty rains evident to north dakota minnesota border. It's gonna be hot and humid. Today there is a threat of severe weather this afternoon and this evening. Nearly ninety seven percent of north dakota suffering from severe to exceptional drought up from ninety one percent last week. Nearly ninety percent of south dakota is in the d. two d. four drought category little changed from last week. The dry conditions are rapidly expanding in minnesota. Seventy two percent of the state is dealing with severe extreme or exceptional drought up from fifty two percent. Last week ninety. Nine percent of the spring wheat crop is in drought thirty. Six percent of the corn thirty one percent of the soybeans nationwide or dealing with drought conditions. Thirty two percent of the. Us candle inventory are also faced with lack of moisture in an appearance on an agriculture. North dakota senator. Kevin kramer said cattle producers. Do not have an adequate safety net to deal with the drought some relief in the warm of things like the livestock indemnity program. But you know for that for you to benefit from livestock. Indemnity you have to call us the die while you own it. People don't raise cost for them to die. They raise cows to read or ultimately produced for food and so sort of a warped system. But but it also you know also hurts the heard. Which is you know needs to needs to be able to grow and continue and go on for years and decades so that's pretty much not very helpful opening. Crp ground for emergency hain and grazing has been delayed until the prime nesting season is completed august. I that's at a time when there's high demand for any kind of forage. We clearly have some programs that are designed to work but aren't working that we need to work on into the future. Seventy eight percent of minnesota is dealing with at least d to drought minnesota governor. Tim walls visited. Jim and robin wright. Meyer farm south west of christon to gain perspective on the lack of moisture. You know you don't want to be pessimistic on this. But i think the week folks pretty much know their time has passed. Soy beans are on the bubble livestock producers. Same wall has spoken to agriculture secretary. Tom ville sack saying much of the focus has been on the drought in the west and the dakotas secretaries got global view looking across the country. I do worry about this. Because he talked about. And i want to be careful that i didn't dismiss it too quickly. The added money for transportation in those types of things. But i made the case. That north dakota folks have already been coming over here for weeks because they're ahead of us in the drought and they've been buying forage over year and walls does not expect. Usda to open crp for hanging grazing before august first citing a lawsuit that has influenced the process at this point. Conservation reserve program. Land will not be open for heynen grazing until august. First as mentioned minnesota add commissioner. Tom peterson says farmers may face further restrictions due to the cb twenty-three ruling the deals with the government's approach to taxing those crp payments. What the fcc is telling me is that farmers need to get in and talk to their office now if they wanna cut or hey any of their crp including the twenty three and then they can explain because it really depends too on what levels route you are if you're a d to if you're a d three and so we're going to need some further clarification on that there's also a twenty five percent Penalty for some farmers that may or may not be waived depending on where they are. And i think that's the other question is but that'd be waived and so a lot of things we're still working on. We're working on them. We're working with our congressional delegation. See we can clarify those two short four. H peterson is explored the availability of state. Land for hain. The nature conservancy is a major landowner in the state and has also been contacted about the availability of that graph. Everything we can do. As what what i wanna do is try to have those options on the table. I'm open options. If armor said things. And that's why i try to make myself as available as possible that we can consider some of these things and try to get them done so hopefully like i said not gonna work for everybody but we want to have options alter minnesota soybean growers association president mike scouts urging governor walls to find a way for the state to offset. Hey transportation costs for cattle producers. Scou- says it's important to look beyond one community. We gotta help one another. You know support 'em any which way we can and you know soybean producers we have quite a few cattleman it or in our our loop and you know Hogs our biggest customer for soybean me. This is the red river farm network farm news on the red river farm network. The house agriculture committee is considering a two year extension for the whip plus program ranking member. Gt thompson said. The committee is working in a bipartisan manner. To address crop disasters like the current drought. The canola crop in northeastern north dakota has been through is has been through a fair share of ups and downs this growing season rhetoric reform network broadcaster. Megan overby has more farmers in langdon. North dakota area battled to get the canola crop planted in good soil conditions. This year speaking during the ndsu langdon research extension center field day chs atoms lok patient agronomist. Ron bennetta recount those battles farmers phased rate in this general area. It's very nice canola crop and it's went through a lot this year from the dryness early on even emergency and then we had some frost and we had tremendous amount of wind damage june first week of june ten days of june and cause a lot of damage and farmers replant so we had quite a bit planet on. Let's say a receipt it on june. Thirteen fourteen fifteen can all in areas. That haven't received rain recently. Needs it soon but canola. Obviously it's it's tap grid and it really searches well for moisture and it'll do like we. It's aborts colonels just to try good head and canola will aboard branches and certain amount of pods just to get good viable seed. One advantage with canola is that the crop is fairly drought tolerant than it is said. If the planned does get rain at the end of bloom canola will resurge in produce more blossoms canola will put out double the flowers it needs to produce pods so if anything happens on a branch it'll take a break and then if conditions are good. It'll re padre flowers so it's an advantage especially with the varieties as we have today. They're very good writers for pods shatter and resilience. So it's very forgiving crop and it'll come back from some pretty severe beating and setbacks and that's what does why does so well up in the north here reporting agriculture's business. I'm making overby on the red river farm network research at the ndsu langdon research. Extension center is looking at row spacing in both soybeans and pinto beans speaking during the center's annual field day research agronomist. Brian hansen said. This is the second year of those trials for the soybeans. A lot of work has been done in southeast and central part of the state and some in the west but not much here along the canadian border. So masumi. We won't find too much difference but we wanted to check it out. You know traditional it was thirty inches for everything and Producers have starting to go narrow roles and you're seeing better yields and i think that'll hold true for pinto beans too but it's going to be able to management if you go narrow roles then you're talking more direct combining so you have to select some varieties that stand up better. The pods don't lay on the ground. Like the old override. Dues hansen says both dry bean. And so i've been acres have increased dramatically in the area over the past ten years. Try beans have been more popular in the valley for number years and they've crept up You're eight and cavalier carney. There's about sixty thousand acres of pinto but yet the toner coney and benson and ramsey. You know there's thirty to forty thousand acres there. So yeah are important to some producers as you move further west and soybeans readings around for a long time but really long canadian or it's only been ten years when you have some of the new or maturity variety set guys really been certain to plan a lot soybeans up here. Minnesota governor. tim. Wall south dakota governor christie noam have sent a joint letter to the biden administration saying higher octane. Ethanol could have a role in the country's climate and public health plans. The letter said the expanded use of ethanol now would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality walls chairs. The governor's biofuel coalition and gnome. Is the vice chair. dtm's weekly recap of fertilizer. Prices included potash prices of more than five hundred dollars per tonne. That's the highest average weekly price since twenty thirteen that market has been supported by production cutbacks and sanctions against belarus potash. The american farm bureau federation surveyed farmers and ranchers in the dakotas and in the west about the impact of the drought on average. The biggest issue include selling off portions of cowherd and an increase in feed costs. Farm bureau. Report said the adjustments made by farmers and ranchers is negatively impacting business income. This is the red river farm network welcomed inside agriculture on the red river farm network. We have seen large swings in the grain. Markets comstock investment market analyst. Joke camp says the wide swings have all been within a very large trading range still volatile. But not the same uptrend that had been guiding prices from The last fall into late. May we've had that down correction and then back higher But yes in the recent two weeks. Really we've been mostly higher on the thought that We're not all there in terms of everybody starting off with as favorable weather as it might take to reach a what are currently baked in to the balance sheet export numbers have been somewhat soft signaling. Some demand rationing shipping. Costs are expensive right now and that big buyers like china are sitting back and waiting to see if the market settles down particularly as we approached this new harvest here in the coming fall for the. Us some wait and see type attitude during june dairy month. Us milk production increased three point. Two percent from june of twenty twenty south dakota's milk production is up fourteen point seven percent. Minnesota melt production. Rose three point two percent the size of the state's dairy herd increase twenty thousand head over the past year in both states bills have been introduced in both the us senate and house to encourage investment in bio digesters. The bill makes systems for a thirty percent tax credit. The bio digesters can turn manure into electricity and provides new revenue streams for farmers. South dakota senator. John thune is one of the sponsors of that bio-gas bill. The manitoba government has announced drought relief measures for its farmers and ranchers. There's a program to help offset the cost of feed and the transportation costs when hauling. Hey the provinces also applying for quality adjustment factor when appraising crops for crop insurance in the markets. We have turned around a bit here after weakness. Overnight the minneapolis sweet september. Four and a half higher nine eight and a half. The december contract eight ninety five and three quarters a gain of three and three quarter cents chicago each september. A half cent better. And the casey we gaining two and three quarters corns weaker september.

"Okay i know so. I'm doing forecourt again and <hes> going to see here because i think the backwards low on this <hes> this <hes> costing device now but it seems to be okay but it might <unk> quickly just might quick just run out of battery so i'm doing the podcast again. I want to talk about some things. Basically <hes> i wanna talk about simple buffet thing in jesus christ this and people think it's <hes> i think people we'll go wrong in their understanding of what faith in jesus christ and what christianity's and they are there you you could go wrong in this. They voted and what that means is. They go wrong in the sense that they they become the world takes over. They are entangled by the world. You know basically the thorns grow and the the plot is sam smother smothered. It's it's <hes> the plot this so what happens to people is that they become get a guilt complex towards the world dumb and then happens you shop you will be simulated immolated no the assimilated into the boards than they are simulated into the church or whatever into the chart. She's young worldly so so they are simulated into the world. I'm simple faith in christ is what is demanded in the bible and it's not something thing that <hes> simple facing crises is it doesn't mean you. Are you loving enough or you really loving now. In i know god these lob it says in the bible and this going to see that there is still working a working god these lobbied says in the bible god sends the goat into the lake of fire burn forever and that's the god is a definition of love and he does start so you know what lobbies it doesn't mean we should judge beer in the sense that we should send people into the lake of fire doesn't doesn't mean that it means that <hes> we should disarm who's who's who that's what it means so judging as a christian that is a right form of judging a christian and the right form of judging is to discern who is who disown who is baptized in the holy goto filled with the spirit and if someone is not filled with the spirit we are not to be in slate by them. You know to willing slavers under them and worked for them. That's that's not the way it works so you know some people will try and what i've noticed with people and tried to enslave lord jesus christ them they. It's not possible to talk to people out of it because it's not a matter generally. It's not it's done by people who are safe satanic. They've satan. Satan is not the person that you can discuss things. Would he's not gonna listen to what you say because you know but he might say yes he's he. He <hes> foods people he's <hes> deceptive and therefore any discussable satan you know you can have discussed as yes yes yes but he's collecting information on you or he's just trying to make you just luring you so you have to disarm who's who and if satan if you noticed that someone who is the body of satan then now you ought to resist satan says in the bible you are to depart from evil. You are not to sit there and try to discuss with satan. Please shane's yourself. You know that's not how it works and you. You know that's one way but really what i wanted to talk about. Faith is in christ than simple faith in christ. Iced is something that you should have all the time. It's not something it's it's not about a <hes> people falling on youtube people a lot feelable the both fall into the drama the drama album of you took the dream of you too that it's it's similar to emmerdale farm the drama of youtube similarly watching television watching some soap on television. It's drama what's going to happen next month. They're gonna do on long drama so these the fall into that will you. You're continuously fed with new material and his people putting it out videos. Listen to these videos somehow you believe that anything to do with christ because these are so christians but <hes> your to yourself having a relationship friendship with christ. That's being christian. Being christine is all about you yourself. Having the mind uh-huh christ <hes> you know speaking to god the father and simple faith in christ this <hes> it's the sense christ. This god the father in the sense dance <unk> what what they all want. These three are one <unk> tries to the father so we have to believe on his sons sons. So we have faith in christ you know <hes> that's what god the father that the faith in christ and faith in christ it is not the dam is not just about mantle sent. You know mental assent that crisis is a <hes> savior that we believe in him. It's actually you know we are here. North end leaving his christ. Dying is gain so it's more than just mentally sent <hes>. It's actually what we live for. Christ lives in us so and <hes> we dead to seton so that's being bought by the holy ghost. You know it's a it's a continuous thing. It's a it's war for its where we are at all the time as a christian. You can be distracted by the world and what happened to you when you <hes> that distraction politics away. You don't need to go to be fed more distractions. You don't need to go oh to whatever drama you know. Whatever it is whatever you take in. You don't need that you you. All you need is christ and christ will guide you in life and is not necessarily what what you expected. You not self will as a christian. You're guided by christ as southfield. Christon is has not entered through the narrow gate the navigate being christ alone you know yeah that's what i wanted to say and <hes> this might be difficult to understand but i think it's essential in a sense awesome to hand the life because life is not life is misery. You know these life for north here's misery three but but the deliver to them as true christian is not misery idle. It's faith than it says the holy ghost it's joy peace love and love in the holy ghost logan righteous of righteousness is simply to to to <hes> simply christ to know but <hes> there are a lot of enemies and a lot of trouble that decreased in will face ace so it's a tough journey tougher path can be tough to relation. I myself have gone through what has been the most <hes> shocking to me. Is that people who have our claim to be followers of. Christ have become miami's you know the shocking to me because i thought that <hes> i thought that <hes> i thought that <hes> there will be a family of god here. North now while there is of course but i had the interpretation that they would be nice to me while uh i'm not saying that their act there is some more active level. I think thinks some are what i would call for christians and what i founded the fords christians that i come in contact with have been the most energetic about claiming that they are threw christians which makes it so difficult recall that <hes> as a christian when you have this and they start show out and they want to contact with you. They contact you. They come to your your whole more. They you know they ask for you. Know <hes> the force christians and then you have the church which wants to basically the problem with charge as i said. They said they don't <hes> they knocked four christ. You know they they get you wrong. And i want talk about one instance that i precede. There was a woman that complained about that it was too much noise and stuff at at in there so she didn't want to sit there and suddenly the pastor wanted to know which which <hes> table it was that it was if she wanted to pass states sheets you wanted wanted some to to to you know to judge these people at the table who made this woman feel that it was too noisy for her and that that was the stuff that happened. When i was in there was continuous. I think it's a feminism they wanted to judge they. They blamed the men and therefore you know. I don't think any ma- that this woman even thought that there was any man that had done anything to her or any person person woman either that done anything to our but rather that was noisy in the judge tonight's it is noisy in the church it is and i think it is because they know is there is no <hes> true holly goes you know it's it's a should they favoring the wall the monday you're favoring the wall. You can't get that peace of mind in charge you know when you're working. When you favouring satan you know and that's what they do in church they they don't <hes> he's not about god they reject the king james bible and it's all about helping the wall you know and everyone god is law. Been god loves everybody. You know they have a different jesus in charge and <hes> such <hes> they <music> are <hes> <hes> i've gone so far now that i don't enter the building and the when i pick up food i just i get my food stamp and then i walked out and then i go in short but this mega food megastore i drive the food the food home to my house and then i go back to to the church too and i just going to pick up through the back door green and pick up my food and leave so i spend spend a maximum of three minutes there or something but you see they they they're onto me anyway. Handle the not onto mean nate nice fashion russian. That's that's the scary part with these people. This guy this energetic guy who energetic in the sense that he was had motormouth motormouth it was to continue to claim proclaim that he had jesus in my face this man this two timothy method three christian. He's there you know and they are on friendly there but any contact with them will result in problem to you because it's assist lava kill at you. Kill with love. You know the two timothy three christian love kill the personality and that you can find also with some christians they actually 'cause. He themselves loving but the actually are sociopaths. You know i remember so particular this two timothy three kissing and his female friend they did the same thing the female friend she got the flu and she's never sitting next to me. She's never was never sitting next to me but there was only one time time she was sitting next to me that was when she had the flu and she actually managed to give me the flu that day as well. That's sociopathic in you know in my opinion on this but is to timothy christie's worse. You know he's a workaholic. He's you know that the you know the work celebration. It's the working damnation <unk>. He's worked dominationist a workaholic and he <hes> he <hes> he you had the flu and at that time i you know i wanted to stay away from him but that was not possible you know and <hes> <hes> the very dangerous people these people but they're not like openly dangerous now. They're supposedly loving and they had to sign and he has he has signed. They have a sign outside their on their window. They put it on their window so so that you can see from outside and on that sign. It says we are here to help you. We want to socialize lies with you. Come in and you know and you'll get coffee and cake or something. That's what he says. That's that's what it says on the most dangerous persons you know message. The actually tried to you know because that's i want to show you here. Satan does satan doesn't come and say we're dangerous. Do dare to enter no satan lives live <unk> deceptive person he comes and says we care about you. We want to socialize with we want to hear for you. Do you know he lies and then he tries to author really destroy them. You know it's the love kill stuff that you'll find with some you know kind of like charismatic law this two timothy three houston. He's into something called charismatics. He's into kenneth hagin you know so. They have their idols. That's while within this because kenneth copland for example and and candidate they on saved the devils. Probably you know car know for sure if they are but they could be either before kristen to fall sweet auburn matthew thirteen that is sold by satan actually actually fallen angels come in the flesh and that's their idols. That's they want the two timothy three than he used to say. The very words <unk> had said you know he wanted to say that in sweden to to see you know the the effect that he thought that it would something something would happen if said that basically i think they want to become a candidate. They want to have their lethal. The worship thirty to worship pursue shake around around you as you can get on videos. He walks around and they all shake and go into something they called ad. I think it's cool well down holy laughter something they sit on their shares and so you know this shaking is not oh god <hes> <hes> it's <hes> probably lean energy like the indian <unk> so we dealing with gurus here do people you should superior should stay away from and <hes> you know the best way i found to deal with these people because initially i thought i should be quiet about these people because dangers. There's people should be quiet about but what happens. Is they going to come to your face. You know these send out. Someone comes to your face to talk to you because basically they're they noticed there is something there is discussed their fellowship and they don't know he doesn't come here anymore. More and they noticed something but they don't know exact so they come to you and sometimes even informed but something you know something they come to you. May maybe today maybe to get. They believe they have something on you know they believe that they should have the right to subjugate you like satan does to louie's devils and <hes> but i found out that being quiet is not the way out of this even though oh you know that is the way out of it to some degree but sometimes <hes> actually using sward the spirit of the word of god swath awarded truce against them similar to what says said here you know they not of god these people they're of the devil <hes> they are deceptive liars that that we are to resist them but also we are allowed to if they come to our face in this good to be quite the walkaway but today there is a point where actually the you can explain the stuff to other and this is dangerous but be not many marchers be not many mall stir success in the bible because <hes> the mosques sisters will receive a bigger condemnation of punishment whatever because no one is perfect in their tongue with our tongue so should we teach people should be explained to people. Some people. Don't notice this guy englishman he. I don't think he does i. I think he has employed a method of <hes> not speaking to people which is a good method because when you don't speak to people they they don't have anything on you. We should be very careful with add the face to face discussions with with anti christ's because you know you must realize that the people who are of the devil they're also gonna use the <hes> the tools of the devil including cooling authority the on you so <hes> which is an unchristian thing to do but they of course they're not christians. They force brad through so they do that so so you you you call an offer. You can't tell them face to face that. They're anti christ so it's not wise to do that but there if other if they send a messenger to to you send a person to you know to try to get something from you. <hes> send lower dabble. I will tell you whatever i don't know if they have to be devils. I i'm not saying that this person has to be adaptable probably human being when they send a human being to you that that that believes in satan's rules. I put it that way. <hes> one way to get to get away from an end to get back to christ is actually to say the truth. Yeah say the true who says that you know that person is is not that person's not going to happen. No you know to put it plainly to them because you know these people are trying to they are still in what could be called the the the the christian faith they are. They have the by blessings garden so when you say things that they do understand what you mean yeah i think you know it's difficult for them otherwise they can just go on as long as you're quiet at the sign also is a sign of intelligence to be quite to be wise so we can be quite but if we put if <hes> <hes> we can also use the sword of the spirit and it's part of the the armor of christian to to resist satan is it's the what you know to to speak this word of the spirit the word of god. You know that we are allowed to do that. We are you know though i don't think we will we will change anyone. We can make it may be. It may make them leave us alone because it doesn't go you you know they re recorded only sales people you can't get further with sater's people than to resist them and get them to flee from you. You can't convert them. You know not not the you know generally. I've tried to <hes> to talk but you can't and that's what this <hes>. Englishman showed me that you can't really win that way would say to people you can't convert at them to christ. They asked mad when they realize that you don't think that christians you know they get mad right because not only do they want to be christians. They want to to be christ in your life like the the <hes> catholic priest another christ. They won't have that role in your life. I talked to a catholic priests to it is not possible to speak to talk them out of it. They just wanna win against you because they notice you're not with them so they wanna crush you their way to show you that they write that way so what i'm saying. Is you you into wars. Oh you enter a war zone when you're dealing with these people and the nature of them is not to be honest <hes> the goes they'll since they've satan so so you shouldn't really have dialogue with them because they're not honest we are to resist <unk> to depart from evil job departed from evil. That's what we are to do that too. So you know we know someone we are to depart from them. Okay that was it for. Now seems to be twenty nine minutes here. God bless all of you who loved jesus christ grace to all of you love low jesus christ with sincerety bye for now.

"Have you ever wondered what dementia stay more rungs. Miss infamous imprisons alike. Have Room began their conquest of Rishon. Well well we go to story for you. This is the AD history podcast weaving a tapestry of world history from one to Hda a powered by T G. Get your good news. That's real news antigen all by visiting t review. Don't calm now here all your. You'll hosts pool K.. Di Costanzo and Patrick Foot and brought to you by a London and New York City you are listening to the ad He d history podcast. I am Paul Costanzo. I'm joined by my co host. Patrick Foot Patrick. We have two very important things off the bat. One for a show that examines history on a decade by decade basis. We have a whole new decade ourselves ended addition to that we have a special Guest for the first time in her chair this we do. It's a super super exciting new year new decade but same old eighty history. We still plowing free. We don't really concerned with a twenty two thousand just yet has gonNA take a sub time to get there. That's for sure it's very exciting. Reported talk about that of further without lying by a pool. Would you like to introduce us to new guest I most certainly would. It is my pleasure to introduce TJ founder and editor in chief better known as our boss Kristen Easter Bird. And we're bring her in today. Not just because we we want to in a wonderful way to introduce the third chair in future episodes. But we're also talking about someone today. Who has a very specific specialization and background that it is going to be extremely helpful and examining one of the major figures in this episode and so for this case? We're talking about somebody who has graduate graduate level education and neuroscience in addition to working professionally in Clinical Medical Research Ladies and Gentlemen Burston Easter Berg. Low Eighty history listeners. My name is kristen. EASTERBROOK and I'm happy to join you today in the third chair. And we're very excited to have you here as workers since can be radio began bring a completely different perspective to what we're talking about today which we simply wouldn't be able to well. I am happy to give another perspective on today's very very how shall I say very storied and very controversial figure at least in our first segment. Paul do you want to take it from here. Yes I definitely do but before that. Let's cue up to eighty history podcasts. Round rule what a- valley events in the context they occurred to you over the span of recorded history the way it was recorded its methodology and the facts that are important have changed immensely how we view history today is not necessarily how we viewed it fifty years ago three nothing in history was inevitable and for history and the past is like a different country as we go into today and the big reason why we have Kristin here is in the case of forty one eight hundred fifty fifty eight day. This is where our story begins and it begins with one of the most infamous figures in the last two thousand years of history. A and that figures name is Julius. Caesar Germanacos better known as Kalibbala Kalibbala. But I think it's important to set the scene it's forty one. AD in the Palatine hills the very place where the Roman imperial palaces located to this day it is the late morning and click. It is coming back from the theater her and he is slightly hungover and as he's coming back from the theater he decides that he needs to take a bath to freshen up where on his way. He is cornered and brutally beaten to death by his PRAETORIAN guard a portion Russian of the military that is so elite that they're one job is to protect the emperor and indeed in this case they have taken it upon themselves to murder murder him as well and oddly enough guys this one piece of history that I had just mentioned too is the part that historians oddly oddly enough no the best about colleague Ula leg despite how infamous he is is truly a leading figure in trying to understand him given the fallout from this successful assassination but for Colella. His story starts many years. There's before L'Aquila of course was born guys Julius Caesar Augustus Germanic s and he was the son. One of the famed dramatic and Agra peanut he was one of nine children and roughly one of the five that managed to live into adulthood and in his early life. The actually spent most of that time with his mother and father on campaign on the Rhine because Germanic hisses. This is first major job and promotion. Came from Augusta's after thirteen ad to be commander of all the legions on the German German frontier as it were Jurmala if you will. And when he is there is mother Agra Pena as the Camp Taylor killer outfit him with a small legionnaires kit so they have them walking around like a uniform soldier albeit one eighth the size use and that includes the famous battle sandals that lit Roman legions are known to wear known as colleague Yele and so his name is Caligula better known and translated into English as booty kipnes. That's right when you say emperor Geula you're actually saying Emperor Budi kipnes. It would absolutely blow him over over with embarrassment to know that history now knows him. Best buy that childish and small nickname. I have to say that Budi Kins is my favorite translation of curricula can also translate to boot skins or you know small boot but Up Budi kipnes definitely captures the wrath and severity of Caligula. Rain when you say kind of creates such an ominous contrast contrast compared to who this guy actually was that he would be given such a childish. Nickname is it's kind of like there was a modern Tamburlaine knowing him as crocks assistant. I mean that's the kind of thing that we're talking about here. And so naturally this. This young Regula is surrounded by violence at a young age of course Roman Society at that time most celebrated these kind of things but his upbringing. Get Stranger from there because obviously as we talked about a couple club back Patrick his father and up getting what many believe is murdered and that there are some very important and high ranking people. Oh that might have made that possible. And so in growing up after his father is supposedly murdered out in Syria. He lived with his mother again with his brothers and two sisters and as they start growing older after their father is dead. His mother begins falling out with Tiberius. In the imperial a palace for a number of things one is Tiberius. Didn't want her to get remarried. Because he was afraid that anybody that would marry her would end up being a a threat to him which is not entirely a baseless concern given the fact that she is the granddaughter of Gustis and I it really goes from. They're in a also. In addition the fact. You have to imagine that Agra Pena had a great deal of animosity for the fact that Tiberius and Livia which which would be dramatic is's grandmother and this case would also be great. Grandmother doesn't allow for a true WHO official state funeral. When Germanic kisses ashes come back and you also have to imagine agrippa probably thought Tiberius was in some way way involved in all of this and so between nineteen eighty? That he has that you're mattis was knocked off. He goes brought through a series of events where he's briefly living with his mom where he then goes on to live for a time with his great grandmother Livia and then onto with his grandmother and Tonia minor and during this time I am Tiberius is one by one getting rid of his immediate idiot family. He ends up banishing Agra Pena to a remote Italian island where she ultimately dies due to starvation avation in addition to that one of his brothers also banished in the same manner and dies either that way or by suicide and one other ends up getting in prison and dies there due to trumped up treason charges get for some reason. Caligula is not a victim victim in fact at nineteen or twenty years old. He is invited to join Tiberius to live with him on Capri because at this point. And we've alluded to this previously Patrick where Tiberius at some point because he's such an odd character and such a bad politician anyway eventually get sick sick of Rome altogether and he decides that you know. I'm going to rule by proxy from Capri and depending on who you believe whether it be Suetonius tacitus a went there and not just to escape Rome. But to holy indulge himself. In just about everything you can imagine to the point that even for an explicit rated podcast. We ain't go in there. You can look it up entirely on your own. We're we're cool with that outcome. Constantly amazed by how little impetus various wanted to be emperor. It really does well. Mine doesn't kristen it does. He's definitely a he's a dark and brooding figure he is really not interested in the glamour. Kammer of being an autocrat. So it's a testament to the state of the autocracy even with Tiberius the second emperor or that even in ruling by proxy the whole thing didn't come crumbling down and that's one of the strange parts about all this when Is brought there. He lives was there for six years. And it's entirely possible. And this is largely Howitt's viewed is that he was brought there to be essentially bread for the imperial succession. And that's a mechanism at this point in Rome that they still haven't figured out because at this point the whole concept of Emperor Emperor isn't still not a thing that doesn't come around to the beginning of the second century as we've mentioned multiple times before and so it's kind of this bundle of personal powers that very difficult to formalize I'm live and pass on and it's still rather new. Oh he spent six years there and if he is being bred for the imperial role so be it but in terms of his actual time there. This is where we start getting some interesting insights on the the evolving psychological nature and profile of who Click Ula was and that's really where the crux of this segment and our talk about. Colella today is because history in this particular sense you most certainly finally have his enemies more or less writing the history because they managed to knock him off they obviously had reason to get rid of him and and then on top of that they try to systematically remove him from history and given how infamously he he is was he mad. Bad add dangerous to know. Is this an accurate representation. That when I was beginning to mold the segment I began kinda falling back into my political scientists mode and I started thinking about a gentleman whose name is Dr Gerald Post. And he's done a great deal of work for the United States in terms of creating eating psychological profiles for other world leaders specifically individuals that we don't have that much access to people like say Kim Jong UN and in this way Click Ula is not terribly dissimilar. Yes it's two thousand years ago but our access into good information on them personally due to lack of general accessibility in some ways it can very much. Who's the same challenge? Even though they are alive and Kalibbala is two thousand years dead. And so what we're going to do is we're going to begin. Generating based on the various conditions and considerations her buildings such a modern profile vile and. See if we can get a better understanding of Libya love the man how he thought was indeed there some form of mental illness involved old or has history entirely overblown the subject and figure entirely from a philosophy of medicine point of view. The something also called retroactive diagnosis loose. It's a term loosely. Used and we're going to to see if he kinda fits into any category of Mental Disorders Syndrome. I used the word syndrome specifically because it's really impossible to make any sort of diagnosis. We have no interaction with the patient. And as Paul mentioned it's over two thousand years ago so we can only go off of really secondary sources. There's a dearth of primary sources. I believe there's really only one one that they have at least that the historical record has from Filo talking about the plight of the Jews of Alexandria And we can touch base on that a little bit more as we dig deeper so. There's no personal diaries. There's no extensive letter writing waiting for us to analyze. We're going to just look at what we do. Have and see what we can find. Yeah absolutely and of course you know. We're always looking Patrick. And I this is our. This is our common struggle for you and I- Patrick. It's just if if we can if we can ever sympathize with sisyphus and all of this and that is the constant striving to find some sort of contemporaneous firsthand account because that's the gold standard. Obviously there's no truth thing as pure objectivity everything is a subject of experience when it comes to memory analyzing events but in this case it's particularly difficult Colt but the first thing that I think is really most interesting when it comes to Colella and this is something that sheds a much greater light on the imperial situation in and layout as it exists then and going forward during his time on Capri with Tiberius. Apparently he we learned very quickly to always shield the outside world from seeing any sort of emotion regardless of what was was happening and Mary Beard tells US Great Anecdote. Did they really describes what we're talking about here. Where you have this proper imperial period princess and and they're all sitting down to a meal together? Her brother to her right just dropped dead and his food and what does she we do. She keeps on eating as if nothing happened. That is the kind of Aeronautica and self self control and the ability to completely play almost impossibly close to the vest in that level of the power our dynamics that exist in the imperial setting as we understand it. And there's interesting. Would I would say probably early apocryphal quote from Tiberius when he was referring to Kalibbala and it goes roughly something like this. The world will scorn the you know the venomous venomous serpent that. I'm going to unleash upon it and to that end. I can't say if he said it or not boy that certainly what happened from all we can tell and so he's there for six years and he's seeing all this debauchery around one of which is just really quite incredible. Where apparently think Suetonius? Tony Talks about this. Tiberius is having people executed by tossing them off a large cliff into the ocean. And if they don't die on impact he has a few soldiers down there and rowboats that make sure to beat the person to death once they get there. That's the kind of barbarity here we're talking about and there's even some legitimate question that at the end of the six year period was the one who ended up murdering Tiberius. It's a legitimate question at this point and in a very strange one to be sure. And so now he's coming into power he's in power and he's only in power for years I and when he's in power he's infamous for his cruelty is infamous for being a radical mercurial even though he begins his tenure fire as print slash emperor with goodwill because he saw rightfully as the son of germanacos based on everything. The few things that we know Oh and how a- profile today would largely look at Caligula. This is basically what's going on first off in terms of the setting in which he comes to power and this is really important. Is that right now. Rome is still very much a a wounded a political body that that that transformation from the Senate ruled republic to Empire where ruling is then a a family business is not an easy norton or smooth transition to be sure so it is a wounded political body. There's still a lot of jockeying back and forth and on top of that. It's now become a leader dominated society and at this point a lot of Romans are looking at the print capture later emperor as a check on the Senate power which is something of a misperception if I would say so myself. Because that's where all the power was in the case of the print caps and now now as far as what we know of Colella through Suetonius tacitus based on his erratic nature. How mercurial and just just how vicious he could be? We begin seeing somebody that off. The Bat doesn't have much in the way of an apparent constraint. The of conscience with one exception and that has to do with his relationship with his sister Jerusale now when you're dealing Khalil and Jerusalem we all know the Classic Story About Colella Andrew Silla once again maybe explicitly rated. But I'm still not going to touch. Is that and so when when she dies at some point this is the one area where truly is not able to control his emotion emotion. Because that's just how much he cared for. For whatever reason that may be but outside of that he doesn't seem to have any any apparent constraint of conscience along with this lack of constrain of conscious we're also seeing a significant lack of empathy with the exemption of Jerusalem. As I mentioned earlier we have of this one. Truly personal interaction contemporaneous personal interaction from Filo where he has filo commenting on the plight of the Jews in Alexandria and Click US going on about the glass in his pleasure palace. As if there's nothing going wrong wrong in Alexandria and the Jews are being persecuted. So you're having the significant lack of empathy combined with this lack of conscience and impulse control problems. Anybody as we know of Colella so combined together and you're looking at someone who has a syndrome ingram very similar to narcissistic personality disorder. Especially when you consider what he was trying to do in terms of self aggrandizement. Dan Dies moment. Because this is something that's interesting about Colella and this violates so many taboos you and I were talking about this question before pre roll is the fact that during the short reign he was trying to make it so that he lilla was to be worshiped shopped as a god in Rome itself and that is a huge. No now if you are in Greece if you are in Palestine if you are in Egypt yeah there's plenty of defying the emperor. That's been going on for some time. And it definitely predates Kalibbala la. But now he's violating the taboo to make it so in Rome and this is something sends off a lot of alarm bells to a lot of people simply because because it's so out of bounds also defying himself while he still alive a huge taboo to Roman societal costumes. And that's really what helps to find. Any sort of psychological disorder is not that not so much that it's just irregular behaviour. I mean how regulars a behavior going to be of a complete autocrat but that it's irregular within the context of that the person's culture so that was one of the things that definitely stood out to me was the fact that peel out his apotheosis to happen while he was still still breathing. This is where things start also getting even more odd and we begin seeing certain personality traits in a Malcolm that are found in various other world leaders to you know and in varying amounts to be sure and another one has to be undeniable. All this is his paranoid orientation now you can kind of look at this in two ways you can view it as as just being way over the top being far too cautious and overly sensitive to the happenings around him. But I think to to do that would be doing him. A severe discredit because of the fact of the matter is somebody in his position and specifically him certainly had a heck of a lot to be worried and paranoid about about because he got killed by the very people that were meant to protect him and so when we begin looking further into Kalibbala we begin seeing more and more of these very unusual behaviors that undoubtedly led to a very very unfortunate outcome. But here's the other thing that needs to be looked at that I think is pretty important. You can look at it from a very top down where you can look at it in a very personal way. A lot of times as historians orients or political scientists or people just even in the present. Let me ask you a question Patrick when when you're looking at world events And you're you're thinking to yourself what might happen next with a particular country. How do you usually go about them doing that? How do you think in your own? Mind that you'll be able to predict what they're going to do next. I know me look into what's happened in situations like that in history. They're not much happening in that country in the past but a similar situation to that country's going through that's happened in the past and see how it plays out then and that kind of shapes my idea of what could happen in the future. I guess that's how I do that sort of stuff. Yeah absolutely and certainly you know. Kristen norm myself. Offer any different in that regard but usually usually we apply something that is largely known as a rational actor model meaning meaning that country a with you know leader a is faced with said situation. They have finite it capabilities. They have specific interest and based on the scenario putting ourselves in that position. We believe they will then Ango onto do acts Y Z and unfortunately in this case based on the general profile of Colella. You can't really really apply a rational actor model to him indeed for all intents and purposes based on the little that we know is indeed. What what many POCA? Scientists would probably end up calling irrational actor which is a very dangerous thing especially in a in a system. That clearly is still jockeying for some sort of institutional sinews of power that can last under the new arrangement and where so much is on the line fine but in in general. This is all very difficult because there is so little to go on however that is very much bydesign due to his enemies that were trying to make that the case do you think his enemies were trying to erase it from history. And so how'd you get new doing it. I mean that's the is. Have you guys ever noticed that when it comes to boss of of Romans in particular that the are far more heads than bodies. Yes I have noticed that you would want to notice that. Well there's a reason for that is because and you can. You can actually see the marks on them. Romans would do in that case is they. Would either either just remove the head entirely from the torso and then place on the head of the of the new emperor or or they would just like removed the face and kind of adjust the hairline a little bit and just a few things and then you know slap it onto that and you can actually see the cracked act. Creeks marks where they have done it. It's all over the place. It is absolutely wild. Never knew about this may speak another thing. The Romans were famous for doing was symbolic removal of previously important people from their public. Alex statuary they would make very obvious chisel marks to remove names and acclamations as I said in a symbolic adjuster of how much they wanted to remove these people. So there's some questions about as Paul mentioned these abundance of busts if you will where it looks like potential Klay Gila busts have been altered to be made into the following following emperor of Claudius which I think Patrick you'll have more to say about Claudius and a little bit won't you yes. Yes clothing is definitely my job. Yeah I got up to those beautiful beautiful well and the other thing that's interesting. We talked about this last time. Patrick when we were talking talking about the cushion empire. And they're very you know they're very weak. In appearance coinage in the case of Colella he was actually generous to the public. Like you go out the form and just start throwing coins at them and it was a combination of both. Yeah we got some pocket change coming home but also big deal because his big year there was on it both his face and on the back there a lot of times or as even one where it's him addressing troops and you you get the idea and so that way you could spread far and wide his image throughout the empire. It's very nice and interesting form from antiquity of very early league globalized propaganda. Yes I was about to say as As Mary Beard. Put it a handy way of having propaganda in your pocket. Yes yes and so. What's something else has enemies you know something enemies would do of course with you know? Get as many of these coins is possible. Just start scratching them out. I mean they really went a long way to get rid of this guy on the thought to be surprised by just giving the way of how he was gone. Because those pretty the standard operating procedure whether you're ruling an empire with a vicious imperial court that's always vying for power in a struggle or you simply have a new. Hey boss they usually like to come in and just blame everything on the old person and then erase them entirely from the record. We've been apparently been doing this for a very very very long time. So sure there's more than a few people out there know who exactly what I'm talking about right now including both you guys I mean hell it take such a modern thing this whole racing from history. ICT specifically of schools like Russia and Trotsky of course but This fall back. That's really interesting to hear. Be careful mentioning mentioning drought skiers dollar on me. We could end end up in a tangent. uh-huh Author Carrie. Yeah Yeah You you've had enough Paul Gome but so they they really did go to extreme lengths to try to get rid of this guy and you know he was pretty bizarre. Now there's a few. There's one thing in particular that I do want to address in this case when it comes to collect Gila and that is the famous story about wanting to make his favorite or a console. This is something that has been propagated again and again and again it's hogwash. It's it's very likely inlets quote Mary Beard again because she's probably dead on when it comes to this sort of thing is that it probably came out of a story where you had a group that couldn't perform verbal Felicia on him enough and that heard him say. Oh you know basically all of your so oh use Lewis I. It probably be better if I made my horse console which makes a heck of a lot more sense but the original story ultimately ends up getting swept opt into this sort of thing as it goes forward and so naturally you. He's a very difficult guy to read. Because you're only getting thing the story through his surviving enemies even the whole thing. Even the whole thing about you know getting getting legions ready to invade invade Britain himself and then telling them at the point right before they're going to embark Simply collect t shells is still still pretty hard to accept especially considering there are other reasons that drew away his forces from crossing the channel at that point anyway. But I think think you're GONNA go a little bit more into depth than that going forward here a grits they won't be of a crazy. Caligula stories is that he tried to start a war of the sea and just send boots soldiers through speeds into the ocean. That sounds like a variation on the same story. Yes yes I've heard that he was gonNA fight and that Choon he just recent soldiers out space free spaces you should and claims victory well so long as it was victorious glad to see glad to see Rome is trump is trumping his Olympic enemies as it were so the one question I have about curricular for both of you guys are. Psychological perspective is a simple question of nature or nurture defiant. Colella was destined to be this this cruel and unkind erotic or do you think. It was just dea nate his nurturing how he was raised using spent most of his childhood on the battlefield with parents and then in a Capri with Tiberius seems he went through an awful lot beef inc who could get it was could have been avoided if he just grew up in a different situation. I think this is an excellent question. Unfortunately I wish we had more to work with for an answer but I'm aware it's very arty. Fawzi brought to question. No it's a great question. It's a great question. One thing I was thinking about a lot when it came to curricula and the violence of the battlefield field is that you know we think about today we think. Oh my God that would be so traumatic for a child and I don't doubt there was. There could potentially have been some trauma Emma but Rome. Violence was just a way of life as we love to say the past is a bit of a foreign country for them violence silence violence was glorified. Violence was part of life so entertainment. It was entertainment. It wasn't just for capital punishment. It was a way of life it was part of the every day. It's hard to say to what degree you know. It could have been traumatizing. I'm more as far as the nurture heart goes with what happened on Capri that sounds like the title of a very very salacious novel. What happened on Capri as he just stole my thunder with that Goddamn at Patrick? Take my lips guys have been working together too long So but it's what happened on Capri that more intrigues me. Particularly the part where he was forced to not show any emotions because while you will the expression of emotions the degree to which we expression motions is also a very very much culturally influenced the Romans Perception of the expression of emotion and ours is not as different. But I put that as a matter of degree as our our perspective on violence and their perspective on violence so it's a little easier to extrapolate. Maybe what that type of suppression Russian of motion would have happened. And maybe how that would have enabled his lack of empathy. I definitely and this is a personal personal completely personal conclusion. If you are raised in the exceptional life of the Roman autocracy see that highest echelon where. It's the most cutthroat the most backstabbing. I I want to say that that nurture is going to outweigh a lot of nature. But that's a personal perspective underlying that situation this in the past can really relate to person. Oh ideas. Could we simply no. But it was just a question that came to mind when even buckling dealer for with this guy ended up who he was if he was raised differently. But this just interested to hear a more social perspective on it. Well you you know in this case. There's a few things that do stand out to me that I think are probably pretty important and the first one is something that defines defines Caligula and a lot of ways that he has no control over and that of course is the expectation that comes with being the son of Germanacos Atticus. I mean Germanacos. There are countless emperors. There many a great hero in Roman history but the Romans Call Germanacos atticus there Alexander. The great that's a pretty hard act to follow and when you consider the fact that Colella was still quite quite young. When he lost his father I think is pretty important as well? Because in the case of Roman Society Eddie the concept of the Patra Familia is so important to the very structure of every Roman Ullman. Life that that Central Mel figure now. This is one of those points in time where we have to remind the audience that of course history is a foreign country their conception of gender roles and their importance are going to be dramatically different from our own and hence how those who are growing up in that system minus this or adding that are going to have a very different experience and so clinical and not. Having his father in a society heavily paternally oriented is a big deal. Undoubtedly had some kind of father figures around. But it's not in his case in terms of flesh and blood not having dramatic as there's a big deal. Obviously dramatic himself lost his own father at a relatively heavily young age but it does factor into it just given the very unique nature of Roman Society Defeat Tiberius. Could the big the big father figure to him. That's you know that's really one thing. We're we're start getting into the area speculation and my own personal trouble really getting a grasp spun who Tiberius really. was you know he had his own problems to be sure but you know patch. It is an excellent question and maybe that that was so. I don't know it's something that I would want to know. And it's one of those things where it could easily get overlooked when those who live closer to that point in time and are making notes for the historical record. Don't pay that much attention to because they're not the more salacious details details. There's a lot of crap. Well a going on in Capri that are GonNa you know very much rank in priority. Unfortunately I think there probably blue was some kind of mentoring. Maternal relationship there. It's Kinda hard to imagine that there wasn't no still nobody. Nobody Buddy's still quite understand why Kalibbala was spared. You know that that's something that we have to keep in mind here. That is entirely unclear at this point but what it definitely is clear is that he never really had a point in life where there was any sort of stability you know whether it be early on in life with his parents. It's on the Rhine whether it be going from his great grandmother to his grandmother and then out to Capri and then all of a sudden. He's the center political life. He doesn't real you know what what he considers to be. Family is very small very transit. There's a chance that drew sylla. was that one person for him in terms of the familial connection that is so common into route time having that direct familial connection so it's very hard to say but undoubtedly none of this did him any favors in addition to the fact that going back to the question you had prior just about nature versus nurture the Roman imperial court if you have any sort of problematic disposition or org for some reason you're prone to some sort of mental illness. That's not GonNa do you any good. You Know I. It's it's certainly not going to be therapeutic though the case of Colella in in Tiberius on Capri and this is a joke that was brilliant that was cracked by a doctor Charles Post. Who does these the these incredible political profiles profiles and it really? If it's here and his quote was the family that sleighs together stays together. I think is really probably quite fitting in all of this not to be too too dark or Sardonic and so you know listeners. Right now you may be thinking to yourself. I've just been sitting here for the better part of forty minutes. Let's and do I know curriculum. Any better what history have I taken from this and the fact of the matter is because of how much the the Romanelli in those who got rid of him tried to erase him from history based on the fact that the most we know about him actually comes from his assassination and that ultimately it is not just his his enemies but the survivors of his. That are writing these tales. He he is so difficult to access however and this is largely the way I go about it. While is a very strong chance that a great many of these more out their stories most certainly were ramped up for dramatic effect undoubtedly. They came from a kernel of truth in dealing with somebody who let's put it this way. He wasn't dealing with a full deck and the chiefs fell office cracker a long time ago. It's part of it's the classic saying history by the winners As you saying. The people who wrote primarily about curricula is early people who've mother mother him didn't like him perhaps. If we have more from the opposite perspective we would have this more rounded ideal through. This person was precisely. I absolutely agree. This is where I think that really worth leaving if you were to leave the audience a very sound psychological interpretation or potential attention view on Caligula looking back in history. What is it that they should take away from that perspective given how it's still so central to his understanding though we have so few details from which to proceed the bottom line is he was a Roman elite rised in exceptional meaning out of the ordinary and the result that you got was out of the ordinary and while we can't say anything truly diagnostic? He was definitely. He was definitely somebody who had behavior that was not consistent with the the cultural norm. It's just so unfortunate that a number of his close successors down the line are going to appear equally on hinged at times US looking at you Niro looking at you. Don't call us we'll call you. And of course Following curricula was Claudius. Who I'm going to be talking about One of his big event on the big things he did star of his reign as emperor will be talking about that in a moment. I shouldn't say a massive huge huge frankie once again. Kristen for joining us today. It's been an absolute pleasure. hoops game where we find another person worth psychoanalyzing. I think thank Patrick. It's been my pleasure as well and I can't wait to join you guys again in the future. Well it was really a pleasure having you here and will most certainly do it again. Everybody Christon easterbrook founder and editor in chief of TJ. And our and with that. We'll be back right after a word word with Anna Domini. This is the AD history podcast. Now you mentioned at the start of this podcast. We've started a new year. I'm sure ever knows about that by now. And it's not only a new year. We've started. We started a whole new decade. And this is a podcast. Cost is very interested in decades and I remember I was on the beach Watching the fireworks to celebrate New Year's really really lovely. Yeah but that's just a part in the back of my head a little thinking thinking about this podcast thinking about yourself first before tax new year's too because of the signed difference. Yes you certainly were and I appreciate that happy New Year by the way U N Everybody Happy New Year of course who listeners. Just got me thinking. That's the twenty tens over with so eventually somewhat down the line Wigan be doing a video about the twenty tens amid. We're bow because we do we'll be doing twenty eleven to twenty twenty. Where obviously the decades twenty ten to twenty one thousand nine? But that's beside the point. I was thinking about four poor would ask the audience. This how is this decade. Going to be remembered when you brought that to my attention at first it's interesting because obviously we say I'm a bit older than you are and I can remember New Year's Eve in the turnover to the millennium I can remember how big a deal it was. I can very much much. Remember following the chaos of Y.. Two K. and so after that particular New Year's Eve it was almost like your twenty first birthday. You know there was not not much rather you had to go and so when you brought this idea up to me it astonished because it totally would have gone over my head. Had you not mentioned it to Maye scurrilous. Let's give it. How important decades are to what you and I are doing? I thought it was a fantastic question. And it's one in particular that that you as the audience we want to hear your thoughts. What do you think the twenty tens will be remembered at four and obviously this is based on where you are in the world and your own relevant history and the priorities you have in your life but we wanna find find out and in fact we want you to let us know and the ways you can do that of course you can tweet at us at eighty history?

Eighty history podcast now back to Poland Patrick and thank you kindly finally Anna now Patrick. We are getting into a neck of the woods. That quite literally is your neck of the woods and an incredible rentable piece of world history. That is about to take place. From the northern coast of France across crossed the channel and on to the Kentish coast could have put it. Better myself. Paul so yes. This is a super important. Two part of history and fundamentally how how important is it. You're hearing it right now. This these words sound coming out. My mouth wouldn't sound like this if it wasn't for what I'm going to talk about right now. And that is of course. The Roman invasion of Great Britain and this is a part of room in history. I am deeply interested myself so much so that I think when we were called the last episode. I Su said Paul. I'm doing this you can find something else did to. I'm talking about the Roman invasion of Britain and I don't think there could be another way about and obviously this is because I'm from Great Britain myself. Uh I'm from a county cooed. West Sussex which isn't can't but it's very close to can it's in the south east of the country. If you look at a map of Europe you can see that. The southeast of Britain is where the rooms would have come from. It's the most accessible part of the country from Europe. And that's where I'm from and there were so many Roman features of my county of my home. All around us really just talked about a couple of them. Talk about a couple of quickly. Show how much this means to me. I guess there's a big nor Roman villa and Fishburn Roman palace which to amazingly well kept Roman woman features that Blake from a little bit after developments initial conquest conquest. But in really good condition and they're really known for their Romaine mosaic floors. If you you go just incredible that these waiver thousand years old and this so well preserved and trust me polar when you eventually come over here. We're GONNA go visit along with the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard taught you about in the past. Oh Oh why wouldn't miss either of it. Well you know big military historian that I am. There's no way that I can overlook the H. Q.. Of the vaunted Royal Maven. It is amazing but anyway there's there's more to it is also the city of Chichester which I don't believe in myself wage very close to where I live. A this is a city founded by Romans and and there she called it Novi Mechanism leg inaugurum. And it's Roman walls still stand to this day you can do walk room and walks around the assist. Even from his name. Chichester that chest. The suffix is deeply Latin in Roman and the current museum. The novum obviously if each choose a ton of Roman artifacts was actually built on top of the ancient Roman baths that chick though would have had and if you go in there you can see these room combat circa said despite not living in Italy I live in a deeply room in parts of the world. Get remnants of its that exist thousands of years later no. It really is quite incredible. Just the how Britain ended up becoming influenced. I winced by Rome and Roman culture and traditions so deeply that it still present to this day police continue the set of two despite how much of my life is surrounded by Roman things before we searching for. Today's podcast I didn't really know the INS and outs of how my pop. The world came into the hands of the Romans see. That's what I want to talk about today. That initial conquest of Britain obviously very a had Britain for quite some time where really only interested up until fifty. Ad Four. Today's podcast so going back to about their. This is the start of all this. It's and however I say this is the stop in some way really wasn't because Rome previously had interacted with Britain A few episodes back back. We talked about the joke book. And how a person was mentioned in that city Romans did know about my land at that time undid indeed even been there. This wasn't rooms. The first time. In Britain Judy sees himself had invaded the country twice his first invasion was in fifty five BC. We see and it didn't really go too. Well and Caesar wrote himself that he had to lead you to bad weather. But there's actually of more fairies that that wasn't the case and that was Caesar writing that himself he's we know we're dead not disobey him but anyway he simply his second invasion Asian was fifty four BC the year later and it was a bit more successful but it didn't lead to complete conquest. So Caesar despite he had been there and despite the Romans knew of it they didn't completely take over it yet. S- and Britain in this time. I'm sure you can imagine was very different into what it's like right now. It would have been inhabited by the Celtics the celts let me try that again. It would be inhabited by celts and various Celtic. Tick try eclipse definitely. Not Quite the United Kingdom is today. So why did Rome want to conquer Britain. What was there for the more they say interested in having this land they tried a bow hundred years earlier in nineteen years earlier or so and they failed? Why why now? Why did they want it now? And that's because Britain had many things very much wanted like just resources and everything like that. It was really bountiful. At the time things would and wool and leather and lead gold silver tin corn. That was a will be taken for him. The Roman so that was just amazing to them but probably the most important thing they wanted was slaves could easily the whole island just full of people you can become slaves and slave away. D- thing you really go to distance yourself from these human slaves just seen as a commodity like lever or gold. which the thing that could be taken am Britain's this island full of potential slaves to do many things for nope however the Romans also unhappy with the Britons at this time in the counts on the eyelid because in early room and battles against Google? Britain's helped hoped to go so they were in their books basically and perhaps the most important reason as to why Rome wanted to conquer Britain and was because they've had a recently new emperor Claudius as we talked about previously he become emperor and he wanted to prove himself he wanted show. Hey I'm a good and do good. Things and his best did was to conquer Britain to show people. Just how good an emperor. He was the more he could do. So like. I said this is only going to be the start of their conquest into Britain even from when they begun in forty free. Add A D up until fifty ad. They got a huge amount of stuff done in just those sort of six seven years or so and they would say around in Britain for four two hundred years and this really is just the beginning. So let's start with the Conquest and L. begun in forty free Ad. This is when curb these older lesions to go and conquer Britain this when it begun and this is how it begun to August of that same year the room successively captured one of the tribes capitals. Which is Colchester in Essex? Now I didn't know if many People Point Essex or colchester on a map of Britain so I'm GonNa try kind of trying to guide people and they could just give themselves if you measure where Londoners in the Thames as a point of reference if you go east of London this one's like a bogey pip and at the top of that is good east. Anglia Norfolk is and what not. It's south off that boat. Would you find Essex and Co Chester coaches of huge importance to the very miserable. Find out later on. That was the first thing they did. They successfully captured should colchester from the coutts. Try saying that. We're a few drinks in the next year in forty four. AD did spread even even more but not maneuver. They went west and captured. Some help fought endorse it does it is South West so so if you look at a map of Britain use an island on the south is the art of whites. If you go onto the mainland and go west from there you'll find dorset a That's where the Romans Klay Moorland really. They didn't only go up. The East Coast. They went west is really spread out from from the get go quite impressive to see and then for Sunday down and capturing and then in forty seven ad the Romans Force Aesthetic Celtic allies in East Anglia. which as I mentioned is that Boji bit to the east to give up their weapons such as showed the power day had over Britain and they want just killing everyone as we knew about Romans the maze of citizens interval consistent and here we go these Celtic tribes in East Anglia? They would just just making rooms as well but that to give up their weapons and by forty eight ad the Romans conquered territory between the Humber and seven estuaries. which if you won't understand on a map if you look for place with Hala in the north of England and playskool Bristol in the south of England which is kind in the nook between Devon Way? It's really easy to see. That's every every thing between that was under Roman control. It's a pretty a big chunk of land and imaginable. Down South was as well. There were only a few parts that were still under Celtic British control and they will call mullan devon denotes the North West of England which is now known as Cumbria and Wales. Those parts remained under a Celtic control for now anyway and that brings us to about forty nine. AD where the Ravens founded a colony for retired soldiers in the affirmation colchester and his really CAMPA pop pools the capital of Great Britain. Well at present the capital of Great Britain is London of course of course and a everyone onto that that question. That hasn't always been the case. However I didn't even know at this time? London was even a thing or London as they would eventually pool it. This time time Colchester was the capital of the Roman colony of Great Britain. To if you I've never been to colchester myself I can't tell you much about it but if you stand you think this is the city. The Romans made their capital. and that's just really impressive to me. I find that fascinating but that's sort of where we end for. Not House forty nine. Ad We will. I imagine I will continue this over the next few episodes but in just six six years from forty free to forty nine eighty the room taken over a huge amount of this island and even like set up their own basis and claimed on Capitol Hair. It could do that. Six years. Hulu military in the world it just shows with the Romans want something they took took it and this settlement of Britain had a huge impact. As I said it's still being heard today. And you're hearing he every right now. Latin is a huge influence on what would eventually become the English language so so many words are of Latin origin. And it's just crazy that that will began about two thousand years ago but it was more than just language a towns they set up like the aforementioned in Colchester and Chichester and Manchester. I'm sure we can understand. What part of language development lights to use that just the suffix is very much? Franks thanks to the Romans and you can still see Roman settlements and Moslem. What's the day like agents wall? Is that you too. The Romans coach still has its rumen. Human Wolves Chichester still has room. And what was it. It's founder. Love the place in this country and the even built over ten thousand miles of road across Britain which connected acted up so much of the country. Some of it can still be seen to this day. And it's just amazing what the Romans did only in this initial initial time on the island is really quite fascinating. But as I as I mentioned before the Romans were impotent until four hundred ten ad to we we will be seeing what these guys get up to in the future ashore or we're going to have a little fun with us here on his now. Something that I think is important for our listeners. Know especially if they don't have much of a background in military history specifically in regards to the various difficulties difficulties that exist well into modern history of invading the British isles from the cotton. Let me yes you question out of your personal experience out of all the months of the year. How many of them would you say that? The channel itself is particularly accommodating to a sailor specifically one that is using wind not not much of the year. I imagine it's a I live like the China. I can see the English Channel for my balcony so I live very neat out yet. It's miserable mixed. It's I this few months. I'll say the summer months went size. Calmest does any from the beachfront he trump. And how eager would you be to take off from Calais set off to Dover albeit the shortest point between the British isles and the continent in a craft that is only propelled by wind would be too eager to do that. The despite being such a small area of sea is dangerous and the undertaking of that and the reason I mentioned it is because because there are many reasons why over the years that has been very difficult to pull this off successfully and obviously the reasons change over time but given in where we are. Now you know. There's a very big reason why Julius Caesar was not particularly successful because especially on his first journey. He had a lot of issues issues with weather and that definitely plays into it so for the audience. I think it's really important to appreciate the practical difficulties difficulties that it would take to successfully send four Roman legions across the channel albeit at it shortest points and then managed to disembark organize themselves and then fight a numerous enemy. That very much is looking looking to repel them from a prolonged stay in the British isles but the other question I have to disaffected that is particularly important because there is a human aspect of this. What was the impact on those parts? Parts of Britain not taken over by the Romans in this particular decade that fall beyond that line of Demarcation Shannon that you had mentioned so it's interesting. You mentioned that the part of a percent not invaded by the Romans. At least to begin with and as I mentioned and they were the south. Mainly seven point of soon with Cornwall and Devon the Norfolk west of Britain. which is now soon as Cumbria? And of course Wales. Now what's interesting about. These parts of Britain that weren't invaded by the Romans or want concord at this time is that they are still very much a celtic parts of Great Britain. They've really proud of that. Celtic roots and even have their own languages. Stay stay like Welsh and Cornish and difficult. Cornwall is many in Cornwall. Maybe as the Cornwall genuinely believe it should be independent. In the same way. Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland and England. It should be a separate country of in the United Kingdom. They got their own flag there in language which it. There's an argument to be made that Cornwall could be another part of the UK and of Kingdom in United Kingdom and even a Cumbria's umbrellas. I mentioned is very much Celtic kingdom too but it's just not as talked about for some reason. It doesn't seem to be as Popular Celtic Park. Fiore's ask people to say what the county part of the UK they'll say. Oh England Wales Corn Corn. But they didn't think they would say compare at that know why is just go forgotten about even have video all about it on my channel just the cheap pluck their began. I think these part I think these parts. It's over Great Britain that were invaded by the Romans. They were damn proud of it and they made it known that hey with still counts. We're still celtic. You want having us us. And that is even reflective to this day those parts of the country. What proud to not be like the much proud or who they we all the English English switch? Yeah we're English. But there's a lot of Welsh pride of Cornish pride you seal of Scottish product of Irish pride and I Guests that comes from the fact that they can say you didn't take us well at least it didn't take them here. How time we'll go to show yet? You know something that really surprised may May when I was looking up the history on the initial Roman conquest of Britain. Because of course they expand their reach over time I it was particularly taken by how Claudius as you mentioned politically since he had just succeeded. Colella out very quickly. Installed as I recall recall by the PRAETORIAN guard. And when he decides to do this. He's his top. Commander is a space station. I believe who ends up being an emperor later on but the thing I find fascinating about this Patrick for two reasons is when the successful invasion contaminates Claudius actually comes to Britain to oversee the final conquest at at this stage of the Roman conquest of Britain. And that's incredible for me for two reasons. One is it's a heck of a trip or someone unlike him in a very dangerous one to be sure and the second one and I think this is really worth mentioning. Is that when you are A it. Despot in this case for all intents and purposes if you're the printing caps are emperor you effectively are when you're a despot. It's usually not a good idea the dea to leave your enemies home alone no spoilers The downfall of the Brahmins in Britain in four hundred ten AD. They had to leave Britain. Because those battles going on back home to to abandon it so you're quite right on that matter so that's just something that that that's just an observation that I had in all of this the other question I have is I obviously asked you about about what was it like for those who are not yet conquered by the Romans. What was it like for the people who were recently that come come under their control? I E we understand slavery part but how do you know how life changed for them under direct Roman administration. Am I know myself personally by Magin. It would have been a big change as we know. The Romans somewhat not to implement a lot of their Own Ideologies and especially. Something I did read was religion so they actually not keep their own religion as they were. Both teigen's Romans were denied this. I've read that Pagan. Romans were considered pagan as well. 'cause they bleed them mocked God's at the as the Celts we've considered fitted pagans and the rooms are pretty cool. Yeah you can have your own gods. Just don't mock are gods and then down the line. Of course. Christianity became a thing and dea counts. Wanted to follow Christianity and the Romans weren't happy that they will no. You can't follow that as eventually developments were fluid themselves but that was a big fine tune it their religious beliefs with some opposed and a story. That I'm looking forward were to that would come up in our next episode. I don't know if you're going to follow up on this. I mentioned a rudy okay. Well you know we're also talking about those who did not yet come under control of the Romans and you're talking specifically mention the Welsh and I'm really looking looking forward to getting into the story of the incredible resistance a resistance so fierce and so comprehensive and so well organized even the Romans had to tip their cap that was led by one Buddhika Yes I was looking for looking into Boudicca. She is very like I love survivor. But she's a very important figure in British straight story and she's definitely going to be coveted notice as official at just to kind of tease. It a little bit and this is really wonderful. One of the most amazing amazing parts of her story is how she so. Capably implemented espionage espionage and intelligence gathering in leading her resistance against Roman occupational forces is definitely going to be really interesting time today. This is only just beginning now Yeah she's two. She was born in forty eight the and died in sixty one eight so the next episode is going to be very much around her from. My perspective is definitely spoilers. I'm going to be covering in the next episode and good to be really fascinating and seven is really interesting when I was doing research for this video. A loss stuff that came up is stuff from schools for like little kids is something and I had flashbacks of being about Boudicca and the Romans in Britain as a little kid. So it's kind must just have those memories every complainant back. That did vaguely know about this. It was just nice. Having refreshing is above the no. We've never British people which in this video if they were told this is is a s kids as well the other question I have for you Patrick. In terms of those the Romans did fight in their initial conquest data. uh-huh of Britain. How comprehensive and how fears was the military resistance to the four Legions Lander landing in southern England? They were pretty face. You see much info myself. But the the rubens could do because they've been invaded before so I imagine. Imagine they were prepared. You know did they weren't gonNA go down easily and the other thing that that I read going into this I thought was particularly fascinating. It actually comes from straight. Oh this girlfriend. Yeah ultrasound. Stray go well. He talks a little bit about the relationship between non-occupied Britain following Caesar's invasion and when Claudius eventually really comes back in forty three Ad and there was some sort of trade and tribute as well as various Customs agreements and and as I recall Julius Caesar before he left after his his second adventure into southern England England he ended up appointing and creating a very specific ally that largely facilitated tasted the relationship between southern Britain and the Roman dominated continent as well. And that that it's something that was always a very tenuous relationship as I recall so there does seem to be an ongoing relationship even an in this near-century between the last time the Romans are there and when they're showing up again here for us now it's very interesting trusting a long history between Roman Britain Romans and the British specifically as a Brittan. How how do you personally feel about the legacy that came from the Roman presence in your home that lasted centuries centuries this eight words I have to say to that? What have the Romans ever done for us? Well you will you know. It's kind of funny though. Because you mention you mentioned the the Romans imprint on your home And of course we're where I grew up in southwestern Connecticut. There is a still coming up on you. Know almost two hundred during fifty years since the United States declared dot the Indus not the United States but the colonies declared independence from Great Britain. Were you can still so clearly see the British influence from when essentially they were the ones here. You know in a formal capacity calling the shots and the one thing that sticks out to me in that case which one town over from the one I grew up in and there is a major road is something of aside road now just Kinda the nature of having twentieth and Twenty First Century Urban Planning plopped on you know seventeenth and eighteenth century urban planning. They're still a very main road called King's highway and there are all sorts of little pieces. Bits and pieces like that all over the place that that reminds you of when Britain was here formerly and when the original thirteen states worthy original thirteen colonies ultimately fell under British Dominion so. It's just a little bit between you and I just the interesting connection. Shen that exists here and just how much it influenced my home from your ancestors as well. The reminded that they were people here. Before you and I think that's maybe something. An old people didn't realize anymore especially a into political political low people year British with the British. Oh we do our own fate. We're not like those people live on the mainland. We heavily influenced winsome go far enough back in history by most places in the well you know the people. The modern British people myself included way way withers of German tribes and Norseman from Denmark and Sweden and Romans who Mesa Lee. We'll relics of that time as well. It's definitely interesting to see how all of these various influences have be. You know. Essentially achieved a confluence influence in this one place in this one time that have created. And if you're if you're not from the British isles or you don't have some familiarity parity with it just how much not only how much of people like. For example. The Romans influenced you but how truly truly the United Kingdom is very much made up of people that despite the fact that for from a good deal. The last few centuries have I've had largely a common national identity but culturally have been are are are so diverse in a way that I think it's very hard to understand if you haven't seen it up close or studied up close and by no means a a monolithic single people people in any way whatsoever. And how all of these influences have come to create modern Britain this as the the AP history podcast. Anyway I think that brings us to the end of our journey for today.

MN Corn: Quantifying phosphorus loss in changing cropping systems of northwestern Minnesota

"Through their investment in the minnesota corn checkoff corn. Growers are fueling research initiatives that build a more sustainable future for farmers and all minnesotans. The minnesota corn podcast. Introduces you to the individuals who shaping future practices identify new markets and promoting agriculture with the non-farming public. Our guest for this episode is lindsay piece in assistant professor and extension specialist in nutrient and water management at the university of minnesota lindsey. Let's begin with an overview of some research. You've been doing on phosphorus loss. What were you in. Twenty twenty was the different concentrations of foster is that were coming off of service run off and for tile outlets across northwest minnesota. We compared some locations that were at our research center and some other locations that were on private firms just because we really have a pretty big gap in our knowledge about how much phosphorus is coming out of the tile lines especially in for our climate in cropping systems in minnesota and it probably goes without saying that phosphorus loss is a concern for farmers. Because you're you're losing fertility opportunity there but also it's a concern for the environment so with that being said what were some of the results from twenty twenty definitely looking at twenty twenty being almost the exact opposite of twenty twenty one in terms of water amusement twenty time. He was a really wet marissa. We had a lot of rain and a lot of tile discharge and what we found is maybe not that surprising from comparing to across other regions but we found similar results to other reasons where we have more fosters losses and to be in service run off any surface stitches that were coming off. The farm had more phosphorus losses than our tile drainage tile drainage in some ways works to reduce our phosphorus losses. So you say that almost as if there was a surprise tone in your voice. Maybe i misread that. Lindsey but but were you surprised by that much that i think a lot of times people think of tile outlets being a point source of pollution and and i think what it's really important to show news results is is that we are that tile outlets. I mean there a good way to move water out of the field but they're really not contributing so much phosphorus but it is going to cause An environmental problem. And i think. I think that's an important kind of peace to keep in mind one result. That was surprising with actually we. One st. which was at the research center in christon. I had a field that was just recently drained and something pretty surprising that we did actually get quite a bit of phosphorus loss initially out of our new installation and the idea behind that being by my hypothesis. For that is that the sedimentation and the disruption of the seville actually made more sediment enter the saline so. We saw more fosters expert because of that will let's drill down on surface loss than and you know whether you were surprised by the amount of loss at the surface and mitigation tools that are being utilized or need to be utilized in For service off. I think we definitely saw you know in this higher volume rainfall events. You know like we had a couple of rainfall events that the rain came out really fast and especially is after snow melt happened firmly. We think is surface. Runoff is really only happening. When snow melt happens we actually did see service runoff other times of the year. Two and we do see it when we have really high intensity rainfall events. Are you know two or three inch rains. That happened in a short period of time and and yet from an environmental perspective You know you can lose them. Georgie of your load And your losses in those events and though to prevent those losses There things that you can do is is really just to slow the movement of the water off there it's It sounds kind of counter. Intuitive to slow the flow of water. You don't wanna slow at a lot but you can slow it a little bit. Just with like grass waterways or erosion prevention is a really great phosphorus loss prevention measure. Because well my mind goes to to cover crops and having that on the surface but is is that part of it part of the approach potentially absolutely cover crops play a can play potentially a big role in in loss of phosphorus. Because they're going to do is they're going to hold the soil in place As as one kind of movement they're gonna be able to Take up water from kind of the soil service. A little bit too During those times when there's a little bit of extra moisture in the ground you know. They'll help his country fire it And kind of pull it up out of the soil And yeah so they can help kind of hold those nutrients one thing that i will say i keep in mind cover crops though especially when it's cold is you have a better chance of nutrients being used if you can time it so that the cover crop is still living after the winter. So anything that dies in the winter Is going to be not as useful for preventing that phosphorus pollution as as crops. it'll kind of grow like a cereal. Rye will grow into the spring and as you pointed out in the beginning your research has been centered in northwest minnesota so the idea of cover crops that far north in my sound good but is it realistic and that is always the question. I think there are definitely some pioneering farmers that we have here in northwest minnesota. That are trying to make it work. It is not easy And hard to make those decisions. I think there's still a lot of relief kind of basic research questions on how to make it work with the short season Especially when you're growing corn and something that is going to be in the fields. You know until You know november potentially hopefully not much longer than that but you know we definitely sometimes get get those really late harvests of corn and that can be tough to get established. So we're still kind of working on if we can find some good strategies For people to us. We're talking on behalf of minnesota corn. Today explain the involvement here in in how maybe the checkoff is is helping to support this type of research is basically provided these seed funding that i needed to go out and collect the water samples that we analyzed is Part of the research was being about It was just you know. I told them my idea. And gave him a budget and They were able to. Yeah like i've mentioned. Give me that seed funding. That i needed and And the really exciting thing about that is that also was able to kind of move forward so that i could attract funding from larger agencies. What does the remainder of the project look like from a time line schedule. What else is planned. Or maybe you're wrapping up this work really In what we worked on through the corn growers innovation grant that initial project has that up but we are building on it by kind of tying and the research results that we already have and kind of extending that work into a larger network of phosphorus research. That is going to spend minnesota Manitoba and north dakota over really excited You know to kind of join this world of edge of field research which is really when you're studying. What's coming off of the field and how they interact with the management practices That are going on in the field. And so yeah so i think it's a really exciting outcome Of this work with to kind of tied until larger network of research and really start thinking about different how different infield management strategies are impacting our essential impacts off field. Where would you point our listeners. To if they'd like to learn more about this research can follow me on twitter. My handle is at lp's un. but we also have a issue management group Through university of minnesota extension. And so i work. And a lot of that of my colleagues are highlighted through various Those social media channels through that as well. You know facebook twitter our website. My personal research is featured on the website at n. w. r. o. c. dot upenn dot edu for the research centers websites. And i post a lot of research highlights there.

I've been doing well what you've been up to well. I took a little bucket list trip. Went out to northern california to a little town called ferndale. california is and he's going to report on that in a future episode. Has that for for a tease. There it's a great town you need to listen to this. Just episode coming up Super cool little tail so excited about it. awesome awesome. well today. We're gonna continue looking at bucket list. Destinations and southern utah absolutely fits that bill. Deb the mighty five arches bryce canyon canyon lands capitol reef in zion. National parks all offer families some pretty amazing hiking and beautiful vistas yes and additionally these are surrounded by state parks also national monuments truly unique towns and they offer mini activities to families with kids of all ages the joining us today to talk about family hiking the mighty five and traveling to southern utah is kristin cummings. Christon is a wife and mother of four teenage boys from northern colorado. She's traveled extensively especially throughout the american west and while her careers have focused on emergency services in marketing. Travel has always been her true passion. She's now a travel lager for tourist ish dot com a travel blog that specializes in unique off the beaten path quirky or cultural travel ideas and she prefers to think of herself not as a tourist but merely tourists ish. Kristen welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me you guys. I'm happy to be here thank you. So let's let's start off talking about hiking with the family just in general. So how old were your kids. When you first started taking them on hiking trips well we lived in the rocky mountains about fifteen miles to the nearest town. So hiking's kind of a lifestyle and not not in that cheesy. Oh it's a lifestyle kind of way but more along the lines of like we didn't have sidewalks so for a walk you know. You can't use a stroller. You're gonna put them in a little front carrier or in a backpack and you're going to walk in the woods with them so so for us. Hiking started when they were born carried them but then as soon as they. Could you know like preschool age We started doing really easy hikes and up to when they were about five years old they were doing substantial hikes and seven years old they were doing like fourteen yrs which are fourteen thousand foot peaks in colorado so That's just because of where we live. And what kids do for fun around here so sure. That's i know that's not normal for most parts of the country but But yeah so. They started really young. I you know. I've always said if they can if they can walk. They can hike and if if they can hike they can even snow shoes. So so i definitely don't think age would should impact at what age people are taking their kids hiking. It's awesome so we're talking about kids. What are some tips that you give families on hiking trips in general with younger kids well. It has to be fun for them. It should not feel like a death march for these little ones so the first thing is just to set realistic expectations. No your kids. If they've never been hiking they should be doing something. Super easy If they you know they you got to be prepared to turn around to shorten the day to or maybe you're not going to shorten the hike but might take you twice as long as you thought it was gonna take so really. It's just about Setting realistic expectations. I also think it's helpful to pick a cool hike. That's interesting or has a really neat destination like a waterfall or a creek or a cool viewpoint Just so that. There's something to look forward to for them and then they're gonna earn it so and i think it's helpful to get them some some form of gear that is their hiking gear When my yeah when my kids turned four their aunt by them camelback hydration bladder backpacks and they were teeny tiny. I think they carry. Maybe a half a leader of water but the kids loved them. They wore them to play in the highgrading. Kids i've ever seen eventually To keep the novelty took the pack away from them and said these are your hiking backpacks so excited about it. But even just the little things like a safety whistle or you know Like when they're a little bit older like oh a multi tool or a pocket knife and this is just for your hiking backpack so Gear helps keeping them comfortable with their close Good tennis shoes. I honestly never invested in hiking boots for my kids because their feet were growing south fast and they had to stop growing before. I did that my kids by the way now are teenagers so i have a brood of boys in this house for teenage boys. But i don't wanna know about your grocery bill cave match dot wanna know but yeah so good. Tennis shoes extra pair dry socks because if they jump in a puddle or phone the creek they're going to be super miserable if they don't have dry socks to where You know a rain poncho you can get them for like ninety nine cents Something to keep the rain off them. You know just if there there's gonna be a lot of whining if they're not comfortable so and then. This isn't my proudest parenting advice. But i- bribe my chris especially when they really young candy is a great bribe. I can remember coming out of the grand canyon one time and telling my eight year old. There's an ice cream shop in the grand canyon village. It closes at four so we gotta go. I had no way damn league. Maybe they're open till midnight. They were still thankfully open. We got but that that draws him out of the grand canyon for sure so my next advice would be lots and lots of breaks like breaks for water breaks for lunch breaks for shade or rest or playing in the dirt or Or even breaks for fun. Snacks like snacks. You normally get my house in the pantry. We always have granola bars. So granola bars aren't fun. But what is fun is trail mix. Because i don't buy trail mix normally unless we're hiking so just have a little something. Look forward to and then dig has. No geocaching is done. Thought rob geocaching is like It's almost like treasure hunting with a. Gps and now technologies. Come along so far that you can do it on your smartphone with a free app and This is there are geocaches everywhere. You don't have to be in hiking country to gio cash. They're in cities they are all over the world There in the ocean apparently So you can do it anywhere. But this is how i got. My kids really excited about hiking too is because there is a little box of treasure hidden in the woods and if you find it You can leave your own treasure behind for the next person and take something that you want for adults. Sometimes they just they're more about signing blog and just checking it off the ticket off the box that they found that one. But it's another way to give kids something to look forward to hike. So those are those are how i got kids hiking so young. I would say it's interesting that you were talking while ago about getting them their own equipment because just today this happened. Today is funny My youngest daughter goes hiking with my father-in-law and she came home today from the hike and she said dad. Papa guide me my own hiking poles you know. And they're awesome. I try them out in a. But but i could tell she was really happy because they were hers and it gave her since ownership and and i think it really made her excited about future hikes. So it's pretty cool that today. You're talking about that. So yeah yeah that's call. Yeah definitely makes a difference. I think it makes them feel like big hikers and not just going for a walk. I'm i'm going to put you on the spot. I am not a hiker. But i am going on my first hike in the near future. So can you recommend a hiking boots and hiking socks for somebody. Who's never done this please. Yeah that's exciting rob. I'm i'm i'm glad you're getting out there and doing some hiking so i worked for an adventure outfitter for most of my twenties I am a little bit of a gear geek. And i probably go on too long about this but you you're gonna definitely want high top hiking boots you want to protect your ankles. You'll yeah you'll feel more sturdy and you'll feel more confident walking over uneven terrain and by protecting your ankles you and turn our protecting your knees and you know we. We gotta do that as a you know. We're not spring chickens anymore. So protect protect the needs for sure but Yeah and i always. My hiking boots are full leather There's kind of two schools of thought. Some say you want the lighter the better you want a fabric boot that is low cut and weighs nothing so they should not carry in that way on your feet. I come from a more old skullcap of you really want to protect your feet. Take care of the rest of your body and that You know all leather boots. Mine are loa brand. I really like loas. That they're more waterproof. Has a cow never died in rainstorm. so let's takeaway of the interview. Ask i say take take care of but also you need to break your boots envy you know before your first big hike little hikes to break the man and and thick synthetic socks Like a smart wool or a solo or something like that. Okay and i was another brand. That was suggested you familiar. That were. i'm sorry. What was that. Branco bose i'll i don't know that brand Okay all right well again. We could probably talk gear for for a while. Let's seniors is actually moved the focus to the mighty five app. Can you talk a little bit about each of the parks and kind of what mates makes each of them unique. Yeah you bet. I'll start by saying the five parks overall they. Utah's national parks are so spectacular. And i i think all national parks have something special to offer but in utah you really do feel like you are going to a different planet and each park is you know like. Oh now we're on mars and now we're on mercury like they really just like other planets out there and so if you are doing the mighty five you're going to want to get the national park service's america the beautiful pass. It's eighty dollars. You can buy it online. That will get you into all the national parks and monuments for in in the country foreign entire year. And so that's going to be the most cost effective way to hit the mighty five. Otherwise you're going to be spending about thirty to five dollars per car load for every park. So you're gonna save money this way and you can play all year so the other thing that i would recommend just for all the parks is to get the kids involved with the junior ranger program. It's a fantastic program. Offered every national park where depending on the age of the kids they will get a little workbook that is age appropriate and there will be some activities for them to do. These activities can range from identifying plant or a scavenger hunt word search and When they've finished their junior ranger program that will have a better appreciation for the park and they will earn a little badge pin as well and some kids like to collect collect them. They're pretty cute. Sometimes i get little special treatment by the real rangers. Also when they see the. Oh you're going through the junior ranger program. How would you be my special helper on this tour so Fun for them. Yeah but like specifically looking at the park so I guess i'll go through like what makes each park unique. And maybe my couple recommendations for each park. As far as hikes goes we were talking about hike. Okay so diane. I will start with that since it's the most popular park in fact it's Last year it was the third busiest park in the country. And it's about one hundred forty six thousand acres which is not that big for a park that stat popular so just now. It is going to be crowded when you go. They have a great infrastructure in place though as far as shuttle bus system but it is a required system so So what. I would recommend doing at zahn for all. Ages is a height called the narrows and this hike is very popular. It will be very crowded but it's so enjoyable and there's nothing like it what it is. It is basically. You are hiking through a river all day with very steep sided canyon walls and it's It's gorgeous. I recommend googling some images for it because it's just so pretty but it's also feels like high adventure and it's also you can go as far as you wanna go and then you just turn around. Which makes it great for all ages. If you just wanna go you know less than a quarter mile and just playing the creek. All you can do that if you want to go five miles in and five miles out. You can do that as well so what you do. Is you start at the zairean outfitters which is Next to the visitor's center in zion and they rent like neoprene shoes that will Keep your feet dry and warm and they ran hiking sticks to kick you balanced because the water can knock you over in some places and sometimes it depends on what time of year you go but sometimes the water you can always find about ankle deep water but other times and other areas you might swim at some points but i believe you can find ways to walk around the swim areas. I think that you could get away with doing that. Hike without swimming. So but like i said it is very popular For me mayes style of travel is to get away from the crowds. And i just haven't found a way to get away from the crowds at the narrows because everybody wants to do it because it's great for the other like most notorious hike Of of zion is called angels landing. It's it is takes you from the bottom of the zion canyon up to allege that shows you a three hundred sixty degree view and it's stunning but it's it's a difficult steep hike. I would recommend it for experienced hikers however am the last stretch is pretty exposed in their ropes and chains. Like you really want to keep your kids clothes if they're younger brad. Before you get to that section. There's a place called Scout look out. Scout lookout is also a neat destination. Inev- itself for the younger families. And you can see angel landing from there. It's a great opportunity to kind of regroup Do we think we've got a half a mile more in us or not. Maybe this blair we call it a day so So those are the two main hikes for zion. Zion reminds me a lot of colorado as far as Just very like rocky mountain national park that imposing huge granite peaks that kenyans zaim feel that way and they're heavily wooded like the colorado rockies so so zaylon is the least deserty of of the mighty five so it's a unique in that way. I thank the next most popular park and right next ion is bryce canyon and bryce canyon is the smallest part of the mighty five. It's only thirty five thousand acres and it's essentially one road in and that's the same road out and it just runs along a ridge line where you're overlooking hutus. Are you guys familiar with hutus. I am i know i. We share like saying the word who do a lot of bryant had just say who are like rock spires that Can vary between five eight nine hundred fifty feet tall and they're kinda shaped like totem poles. It's not like they're white at the base pointy at the top. Now they are like just as wide or wider at the top as they are at the bottom so They come in an in canyon. They are like orange red white all different colors of brock and they kind of look like a forest of rock trees. Almost it's owning picture now. that's amazing. isn't that the coolest and bryce has hutus than anywhere else in the world. There's other places that have who but not like bryce so it's it's a unique park and The thing i love most about braces sunrise sunset. They're both amazing. Yeah i imagined. I recommend going like sunset sunrises a little bit better and there's a few places to watch the sun reserve they all have a different angle. Different photo ops but Sunrise point bryce point sunset point inspiration. Point are some of the best places to do that. You could do someplace different every day. If you're able to get your kids to rally at that hour might view though that's true But yeah you know we just like taking like a sack breakfast out at brighton early. Bundle up because it's chilly there even in the summer when it's that early in the morning and watching the sun come up. So then there's two kid-friendly hikes. I would recommend The harder of the two is called queens garden trail. And you can make it a loop if you take queens garden trail to navajos loop. It'll take you back up to the rim in a different way so that you're not just seeing everything you just saw hiking down and this hike starts at sunrise point and so i recommend doing that breakfast on the ridge watching the sun come up and then just starting your hike from there before it's blazing hot in the desert getting all done early in the morning and This hike is about three point six miles for the loop but you are going through all sorts of different hutus. One who do is called queen elizabeth. Their stores hammer twin bridges. And they all look completely different. And it's just so many photo ops. It's just beautiful. You don't wanna forget any of them fell and to you know standing at the ridge looking down. The hutus is neat. there's this area called the amphitheater that It's it's shaped like an f. Theater full of people and but going into going down into the park and looking up at the hutus where you actually get ninety of how huge they are is a totally different experience than standing on the ridge which is what most visitors would do so Highly recommend that for the really young kids. There's a hike about ten minutes from the entrance called mossy cave and it is a mile round trip. So this is like we were saying if they can walk they can do this hike. It's super easy super flat and it takes you to a mossy cave and you can't go in the cave. There's a railing that keeps you safe but it is It's really pretty and then there's a waterfall that you can visit in that area as well that You can hike to the base of the waterfall and play in the water or you can hike above the waterfall. And there's fewer people up there. This hike is very popular and it gets really crowded in the afternoon. So if you are like me in when avoid crowds may be hit. That went in the morning is when that looks like a place that you could. The kids would want to spend hours playing in the water below the waterfall. that is so pretty african. Yeah bring a sack. Lunch play absolutely so then. We'll move over to arches. Arches is about twice as big as brice which is still pretty small by national park standards at seventy seven thousand acres and it is outside the town of moab and Arches are like geological features that kind of looked like a rainbow To form an arch. And it's different than there's a geological feature called a bridge. It's not it's not like that. That doesn't count as an arch. It's it's got to be more like the rainbow shading and and they're created by sandstone. Fans that have eroded in their week center area to cause those arches but arches for for not being very big park. It has two thousand documented arches within the park boundaries. Yeah and and there are arches around moab as well and in canyon lands across across the street Which will get to but Literally arches everywhere but two thousand within the park boundaries and some of them are up to spam three hundred feet so pretty big so just like bryce canyon. Arches is Popular in small with one way in way out and it's not uncommon to be driving past arches and see a line of cars about a half mile long trying to get into the park It is very popular very crowded Go early if that's kind of like mike Mckee for everything in the desert. Go early So yeah so when you go you just wanna be patient when you get into the park. Traffic is moving. Very slowly It's it's pretty gridlock bumper to bumper the whole time. There's a lot of pull off to see really cool things but there might not always be parking so whereas diane's really figured it out with a shuttle bus system Arches has doesn't have that infrastructure in place yet z. Just needs to be patient. If there's something that you wanna see trae coming back later in the day and see if you can find parking for it and kids will enjoy most of those pull offs. There are neat things to see. There's like there's a rock cobb balanced rock where it looks like the rocks falling over and you can pretend you're holding it. Although as a mom. I always look at that and i'm like some day that's gonna fall to fall. It really does probably now for a few lifetimes. And so the The most popular hype to do in our churches can absolutely be done with kids. in that is the hiked. Too delicate arch. Delicate arch is on so iconic to utah. It is on their license plate and it is absolutely beautiful because it is a standalone are just not attached to a cliff are a rockwall. It's just Standing and the hike is about three miles round trip which doesn't sound so bad although It's really hot. Just remember the desert hot moab is the hottest of the mighty five and easily. That's in the high nineties in the middle of summer. Yeah like the key time to go to moab would be more like spring break and thanksgiving break probably more enjoyable than summer vacation but so just know that this hiked a delicate arch has no shade and you are walking on slick rock. Which is neat It's a very gritty rock that you can walk up. Angles wouldn't normally be able to walk up if it was a dirt trail just because of how grip it is on your shoes But that rock is white and it reflects onto you and Makes it even hotter. You just feel like you're cooking like if you're if you're in the grand canyon you have water stations on the trail correct. Do these have also now. There aren't water. I wanna say delicate. I believe if i remember correctly has bathrooms and water at the trail head but not along the trail. Ohka cumbria paired for sure And yeah there's a little side trail when you first started. That goes off to the last that not many people go off that way because they think will. This is just adding. This is a waste of time. I'm trying to get charge. But there's really cool petroglyphs. Patrick lifts if you go off to the left and it's it's worth a little you know two hundred foot detour and so towards the end of his hike. It is a little bit exposed there. You're walking along allege that legis made of that slick rock so you feel sturdy on it. You're not going to slide off the ledge but with really little hikers You're gonna wanna hold their hand through this part when you get to the arch. It's kind of like It's almost like a bowl. It's like you you you come in on the rim of a bowl and you have to kind of walk along the rim of the bowl to go get your picture taken with the arch and and you will wait in line to get your picture taken with the because it's very popular but if you leave that rim it is that sticky rock still So you're not gonna tumble to your have you. It does make me nervous. Sometimes when i see kids they're just running around in this bull because it drops off. There's a huge drop off in the bottom of the bowl. Basically so i don't know if you can picture what i'm saying that but i would just keep your kids Keep keep them. Close up here And this is very popular place to go at sunset and taking a dinner up there. It's gorgeous of sunset. But then you would want to also make sure you're bringing headlamps So that you can get out there but other little. There's a park. Avenue trail and double arch both are under a mile and they're also great hikes for little kids if delicate arch is too Too much for them then. Right across the highway literally is canyon lands national park and it is the largest park in utah is three hundred thirty seven thousand acres and just huge and it is like a miniature grand canyon. It looks just like the grand canyon in fact most times. You see grand canyon in the movies. They're you're actually seeing canyon lands because it's easier to film than the grand canyon. yeah yeah. isn't that cool. Like even thelma and louise. That's that's not really the grand canyon that is Canyon lands national pearl another. Yeah it's pretty cool. And so you know the kennedy by the colorado river which is the same river that shaped the grand canyon and This park has much fewer visitors than Cezanne and it is more than twice as big as on so it feels really empty if you're looking to get away from people for camping or anything The canyon lands is a great place to go and spread out and have your own little piece of paradise. They the k- the canyon lands are divided into districts. There's maze which i don't think would be appropriate for families to hike without a guide because it's called the maze fair reason it you can really get lost in there. It all look the same. The needle has semi hiking. An island of the sky is as beautiful as well. So if you were going to be in. The island of the sky area mesa arch is a is a neat little arch. That is only about a half a mile hike. And what must be right there. Perfect and then the slick rock trail in the needles is Is a fun experience for kids. That's a lot shorter. Easier than delicate arch. It gives them that same experience of hiking over Slick rock so my favorite hiking canyon lands though is going to be a drive. Because it's on the very north west corner of canyon lands so that puts it at about two hours away from oh app even now. The main entrance is about twenty minutes from o. Ab and that's hold horseshoe canyon and it has some of the most significant rock art in all of north america including this area called the great gallery which has life sized figures painted on the rock From back from ancient times and there's petroglyphs in a couple different areas of the hike as well. That hike is six and a half miles round trip so it would be for experience kids and there's also a seven hundred fifty foot Descent to get into the so. They'd need to make it back out. After a long day of hiking. I also recommend sandals for that when it's super sandy bottom canyon that is just your feet are unhappy if you're if they're full of sand while you're hyper area and then the last part is capitol reef and In full disclosure. I have never been there. That's what twist bucket list. Yeah and doing research for the show. That's true of a lot of people it seems like that's the least popular part by far y- you know that's what i was thinking and i was like well. It must not be very popular. 'cause i haven't been there but it's actually more popular than canyon. Lands really land. Is the twenty sixth most popular but capitol reef the twenty second most popular. So i had no idea. 'cause i was like i guess i just need for a little more effort next time and in doing research for this show. I got excited. I was like. I know exactly what i'm gonna do now. Next time i go there. 'cause it sounds like a lot of fun but they Capitol reef is more desert more canyons. The neatest hike that i found with kids is called the sulphur creek waterfall trail. That is one point eight miles round trip and the mostly. You're hiding in a creek the whole time. Kind of like the narrows only not as dramatic as you know. Hiking within cliff was but then there's also a lot of history there. There's a historic town that used to be there called fruita back in the home setting days and you can still visit the old fruita schoolhouse and peek in the windows. Where they have desks still set up through like that. Yeah and you can learn about nettie. Who was the first teacher of that school at the ripe old age of twelve kidding cute when a peanut and then there's also still a fruit orchard that That you can go pick fruit. And then the park service will charge you for what you pick. But depending on what's in Season there's apricots cherries apples plums peaches so that orchard from the eighteen hundreds a still alive and well so yeah just kind of neat historical area there that i would definitely like to check out and i think that covers those. Those five voice started off talking about hiking But that's not. All there is to do in the parks i mean. Can you talk about some of the other things that people can do their absolutely the big win especially for the moab area which would mo abbas gateway town to both arches and lands mountain biking. It is a mountain biking capital of the west. I would say and There is Slick rock trail is a mountain biking trail different than the slick rock in the needles. I was talking about earlier but That's really a advanced level mountain biking but it is on most bikers bucket list. If you're biking family but there is a place that is west of arches called klondike. Bluffs that i would recommend for taking kids and i took my kids. We have mountain bikes and we go mountain biking but we've never really been given instruction on how to do more technical things on the bike so we actually hired a private guide to take us out and teach us the moves. We could be a little more opportunity on our bikes and in quantum gloves was where she took us because they have trails there of all levels and so So it's great and you can rent by all over town. it's like starbucks. Every corner has a mountain bike rental store. Yep and there's also water sports along the colorado river you can do whitewater rafting. You can do stand up paddle boarding. They've overnight rafting trips And then they go. I would love to do that. Sounds that sounds like fun for sure. And yeah canoe trips. it's it's yeah a lot of offerings. Then there's adventure sports like zip lining slack lining one time. I was there hiking. And i saw these guys just slack lining which is like tight rope walking across a canyon not do they were roped in. It's safe safe adventure you know. That's a hard fast safer. Someone else's kids not mind but then there's what climbing rope courses that kind of stuff There's all kinds of scenic drives. You can go on picnics places I really enjoy keeping and canyon lands because is so big. There is a there are great for will drive trails. you can also rent. Atv's in dune buggies. They have guided hummer tours. So he's pretty popular to below bryce canyon in grand staircase escalante national monument there. It's connected to bryce and that's popular there too and then i feel like the park. Rangers always put on great nature programs whether it's moonlight hikes or nature walks or learning about edible plants astronomy and then Petroglyphs are everywhere in this part of the state and my favorite which is the slot canyons and canyoneering. Yes we have to ask what in the world is canyon area canyoneering. Is that really the best. It is very basic. It's just getting from the beginning of a canyon to the end of the canyon. That's it but to do that. Yeah it's pretty basic but to do that you might have to hike. Climb repel sometimes you swim. You have to scoot or shimmy or squeeze or crawl so simple. Thank you got us on that one. Simple eight a. b. rob added sure. Yeah so usually you know you wear a helmet and a harness and that kind of protective equipment. It's not something for technical canyoneering. It's not something you would do without a guide There are tour operators in moab that will send out small groups and for those small groups. i think kids need to be about eleven years old to go with those small groups but if you hire a private guide and talk to them explain what your kids. Experience level or comfort level. Earners they they will often let you take younger kids. So my youngest started when he was about seven or eight years old so we we hired privates. Because like i said. I like to get away from the crowds so we i wanted my own kanye and i got nervous that the end of our first trip out there was a hundred and fifty foot repel at the end and myself and my two older boys. They were already down. But the little guy i was like. How is he gonna do this. And the guy just had him clipped to his harness. His harness was clipped the guides harness. And he just dangled in was giggling. All the way down and the the geiger's doing all the recalling for them. So i was like oh much batman. Imagine the belton. No kidding yeah. It seemed that way. He was my hero either way so i a baby made it down. Okay the i think that You know in there there's a law of Of kenny nearing in around zaylon around the canyon liens arches below bryce in grand staircase escalante and Another option for canyoneering. If you don't want to go. The technical route is the slot canyon route. And i don't know. Have you guys seen like pictures of slot canyons where it's like as white as a person has. There's like pretty light beams shining down. I think microsoft has that as one of their screensaver photos. Have you seen those like anti yeahs. So those are around that you that you can Do without equipment. They're not technical. They're tight so you have to Not have claustrophobia. Issue but there's some fun ones for kids like i would recommend In capitol reef. There's little wild horse canyon. I have not done that. Obviously because i haven't been but It's great they say that's that's one of the best ones for kids in the entire state zairean also has one. It's only a mile long red hollow and then Peekaboo spooky goal or ones that. I actually did last summer. That are outside of bryce canyon in grand staircase escalante and it would be for older kids. There's a couple areas that Can be a little tricky at an a little tight and then willis creek would be another one to check out so you wouldn't need guides for any of those and you know i definitely would recommend just making sure you're not doing one above like above your abilities most Most are out in back so you you if you get a half a mile in like wow. This really isn't for us. We're gonna turn around now That's great the one. I told you about the peekaboo spooky bulges A loop so once you commit your committed to doing the whole thing so so yeah that's canyoneering doesn't sound fine. Who wants to go. Dan was raising in his hand. Yeah yeah yeah. So i'm gonna ask you. Where do you typically stay in. What are some of the lodging options out there well. Camping is really popular in that area in the dead of summer. Camping is not what you wanna be doing now. Especially in a tense. Maybe a camper but not in a tent. You want a hotel with a pool and really good air conditioning. so If you do when i camp there are even lots of free camping. Like on wwl. Am land and in the forest service. Land that's first-come-first-serve outside of all these areas but as far as where to stay bryce canyon. There's a whole complex outside the main entrance called ruby's n. And ruby said with purchased by best western and so includes a two or three different modules and hotels. There's a campground with full hookups. There's a cowboys. Buffet in stake. Room robin i are food. Masters mess down right now. There's like you know. Kind of cutesy. Little western storefronts looking shops with ice cream and Things are the kids. They have horseback riding. They have a lot of guided adventures. So the rubies in area Is is almost your only place to stay for bryce unless you want to get away from the crowds and travel and you wanted to get away from the entrance of bryce the whole rubies and thing there's in glendale is about an. It's about the halfway point between bryson's diane so you could make base camp I really enjoy the apple hollow cabins. They're these tiny houses of little tiny houses. That are really cute decorated. As far as zaylon goes there is ao national park. Lodges in the park in the canyon. in i stayed there but i've been to the property in it's beautiful Or if you want to get away from the zairean crowds. You can also head to cab. Which is the Good halfway point. Between bryce lake powell and zaylon. You're about an hour from each of those. If you wanted to kind of make that your home base. I also really enjoy the town a saint george. It's super cute and so That's where we stayed. Last time was in saint george or moab depending on budget a budget option would be to stay at the expedition lodge which you can't miss when you're in moab because hanging from the sign in air is a jeep like a real live jeep. Anyone that's been about. I was like oh yeah i know which one she's talking about. It's fun because the theme is adventure outdoor adventure which is all about and The inside of this place is really cute and sassy and they do allow pets. They have family. Suites bunkbeds the swimming pool in an arcade laundry facilities free breakfast. So it's a great place for For families right in town on the main drag for a pricier option moab that would be quite the experience I have not done this. But there is a chain of glam. Ping come of clamping places called under campus so glamorous his the glamorous camping and so they have the canvas tents that are set up beautifully with you know impeccable decor and furniture For two to four people but then they also have these cute little two person pup tents for kids. they'll put right outside mom and dad's ten and even those ads and bedside tables and labs and things you wouldn't expect in your camping tad's and they offer things like scavenger hunts and storytelling in moore's and things like that so there's a they even have an adventure concierge to help you plan your day out with guides and yeah and for people that don't want to rough it quite that much The redcliffe lodges a neat place while it's about thirty minutes from arches and canyon land. So it gets you away from the crowds and they have a restaurant and a winery on site in. It's in a beautiful location An all again. They offer although horseback riding and rafting and things like that too so for capitol reef. Haven't been there but tore. Utah is going to be the Place to stay. I have looked at some of these properties before for other trips. And they're they have a couple of places where you can stay in a covered wagon Like four trail days. Yeah and some of those wagon sleep six people so we had like a bunk bed on each side and then mom and dad on the back wall so One such places capitol reef resort and then They also have for a more budget option. Which would be broken spurt in so any good places to eat that you'd recommend in the area is around the parks so the first place the jumped to mind when is in milwaukee so outside arches and canyon lands is the sweet cravings bakery and bistro. This place is amazing. You get yourself a breakfast burrito there in the morning or a little sack lunch to take into the parks but The very best thing they have any don't always have it. It's kinda hit or miss. Is the magic brownies. This is that bribe. You need to get your kids through the hike. And it's like a chocolate brownie with a layer of molten marshmallow on top of that and then a layer of peanut butter chocolate rice. Crispy tree on top of that. You're gonna see the hike like of all the cowboys and you earn it. I'm getting away thinking about it. Yeah another fun places the moab brewery. It's great microbrewery for the parents. But they're very family friendly. They've got a great kids menu and the decor inside is a lot like the expedition lodge where there's whitewater rafts and gps and mountain bikes everywhere and it just feels very adventure on the inside and it's just kind of a cool quirky place that I think the kids kids get into. The food is like typical brew pub food and Bryce canyon there is for more of an experience in that rubies in complex. There's a place called ebenezer's barn and grill and it is kind of a cowboy supper with live country music entertainment And you know it's a little pricey but it's the experience that you're paying for and it's just typical cowboy supper kind of buffing style food. So that's kind of fun and then on the east entrance of zion south of the town of glendale. There is a restaurant called the thunderbird restaurant that has been around since nineteen thirty one. It is quirky and cool. They have They tout their homemade pies. And then they have a fun gift shop and it just has a very old diner feel to it. That's fun these restaurants offer like grabbing go for people that are going to be in the parks. Is that the service a lot of offer it ends especially at the hotels that offer like continental breakfast. They'll give you a sack breakfast even if you're wanting to get a really early start on your day but yeah like like Sweet cravings they. They do sack lunches. And you can just load up the career with goodies. So let's talk about now it this correct tourist dish your company. How can our listeners. Gallo you and what you're doing well.
