Thank you for joining me in cybersecurity interviews. How are you today. I am doing wonderful. Doug how're you. I'm doing great so our are things in the beautiful middle part of the country. I is i to in colorado. But has milwaukee doing these days. Gosh we are about to get our first real dumping of snow at least over your recording. This by the time at arizona probably have had tons. But i'm actually gonna go get gas for the snowblower the last place. I really got to travel and speak at. Wasn't milwaukee in january flew in and out. It was gonna be a one day speaking thing in you know anybody. I should have known better having in law that those up all my family from the midwest. North chicago and ohio january. You're not getting in and out of anywhere in the midwest without some type of delay in my you know my arrogance of that being about a three day delay. They kept cancelling how to drive from milwaukee to chicago and it was a whole thing but i got to see the lake. Cresting waves as the snow is blowing in milwaukee so it was very interesting. Clear that you can get out of chicago easier than milwaukee usually milwaukee. Is you know. We're kind of like canada south with that. As long as they can. Keep the runway clear enough to get a plane on it though. Fly planes out. But if it gets bad enough i know they. They've shut down a few times. Speak that i mean you you were you were you know. Have built a name and a brand by traveling and speaking. Do you miss the travel aspect this year of getting out there and being on stage like you have no idea of feeling i have an idea. Trust me on the wall. I went into twenty twenty expecting all this international travel. I just changed jobs. And and it was part of that job. Was supposed to include a lotta travel to international conferences and even our our locations and yet none of that happened i did. Rsa and then besides tampa was scheduled to go to singapore and sydney in the two weeks following and in between those two. They shut down all travel. And yeah i've been. I've been here in my home office which i feel guilty saying suffering is pretty pretty awesome office but yeah i i cannot wait to get back on a plane. Fact even allman i have been talking about how a bunch of us are going to go find someplace to all traveled together. Just because it's we've all missed it for so long that he's actually somebody. I gotta hit out back channeled him. Because i'm trying to raise the next level of hackers and my daughter who's ten and her friend. The condition was they were able to go get the leftover halloween candy at their at my friend's daughters house. If they can get through the lock. I said cool. I'll teach guys lock picking. And i'll get you a signed copy of the lock picking guy so i try to get them to learn about lock. Picking it sucks not being out there and kind of seeing the whole community. What drove to obviously not not a wallflower. You wanna get out there and talk. What drove you to kind of get on stage. It's it's not something that's always a done by folks in our industry where where they can somewhat be a little bit more reserved. Yes so it's kind of funny. Because i've been speaking at conferences since two thousand fourteen and but i never really got was ever really serious about it like i do one here and there and it was a lot of it was because i was working in a consulting role. And it's good for you know when you're consultant especially it's good for your organization to have people out there speaking and i found right away the first time i did it like that was actually a lot of fun But then the more. I did it the more i started to realize like i just i i really you know. I've got a lot of ideas. I want to share and i love doing this because i've always been believe it or not. You know you you talk about me being out there and it's like i was very socially awkward like i was the person i go to a conference and be completely alone in a sea of thirty thousand people at defcon. Right which i mean. That's not unusual. People do that all the time but even smaller conferences like i was just never very good at starting conversations with people and so when i would speak it was a whole different world because you'll people would recognize you from having been on stage in an it. Stop you in the hall to ask you questions about what you talked about or whatever or just to thank you and it was such a great icebreaker because now i could get in. I could have conversations with people in the hallway about all this stuff that we were passionate about and we could. We could share ideas. And that's what conferences are all about to
Finding Your Tribe In The Clubhouse App Where Your Voice And Your Presence Matters
"Hey you guys welcome to. Yes she's driven podcast. I m here with jiffy accardi and we have been wrapping before. We actually turned on this video. And this is this is this is like one of the bad things that happens when you have really great synergy was someone who provide so much great content before you turn on the podcast and we're gonna see if we can replicate some of that for you so tense. I want to share what it is that you do who you are. I also want to let the listeners know that we are really doing a clubhouse series right now and we're interviewing people who are all over clubhouse freaking out on clubhouse seeing what you like about clubhouse how it might be destroying livens hell how you can actually really use this app away. That's healthy effective and not sure any of us are doing it healthy ineffective yet. But you know we're working on it exactly so Tiffany just share a little bit about your background. And then i'll start asking you some questions about hired how you working on clubhouse absolutely so my name's tiffany elissa cardi and i am in the community building space. So i feel like. I've really found my home on clubhouse as a social media application i run a global movement called gals that brench that brings together women through monthly curious events over happy hour and brunches and We come together to empower each other network. Get to know each other in help. Women find friends in all the transitions of life between having kids and getting married professional working life in all those pieces. You never realize how much you really need your your women around you and whatnot so we have one hundred twenty chapters around the world throughout the us the uk. Australia and canada. And so i spend my time creating all this events in also through this year we've been impacted by covid in doing in person events so been doing a lot of virtual events virtual but clubs in virtual brunches in all the things bringing spy guide. You just sound like us sound like like piece to a woman's heart because they think that all women we need each other and we just don't operate as well without each other. And i think especially a lot of entrepreneurial women which the she's driven podcast is entrepreneurial and men to But the point is is that like. I think it's one of the things that some of us are not even so good about making it a priority and then we wonder why we're resentful or frustrated when it's like we're not making us in our friendships a priority. So i love this chapter. This is amazing. Now talk this yeah. I was moving across the country doing consulting for higher education institutions in. So i would move every couple of years and i find myself in this boat like how do you connect with people and for me as a single young professional. You know i'd get involved in church Unprofessional joined softball teams. And things like that but at the end of the day just found myself kind of in this boat. Where i was like. I need to find my tribe of people in. Why isn't this happening for me. Because i've never had a problem doing it. And i feel like i was actually like a strategy like given to me by god's fires like that i was meant to create this aces and create the table and so it literally started out with like one invitation of like. Okay who do. I know i know five people in all you guys bring one person. Let's go to brunch. Like we'll meet all the incredible women that we known each others lives and then the concept was always invite someone so i was living in virginia beach at the time. Had just moved there a week before we did. This whole brunch concept Because i was consulting back and forth. I was starting to get to know some of the people in the area. We had over forty women that came together just by like everyone invite one person and then that chapter ended up growing to over two thousand women. I ended up moving back to san diego. Later that year someone else moved away. They started chaptered kind of like a joke and then went on to social media and start sharing like. Hey we have We have a chapter in virginia and then within a week we had five different people reach out being like. Oh my gosh. How can i started gals at brunch chapter. And then it's like over the last four years it just kind of like accidental entrepreneurship journey of like figuring out. Okay how do we scale. How do we make this happened in a healthy and sustainable way in also realizing oh my gosh like our generation is truly crying out for more connection in. So it's funny that we're looking back around with clubhouse because i think that's the phenomenon that's happening because we've gotten so driven into the social media world where like a one hundred twenty character status updates. Life is great. You know here's my life whereas like around the table people being and like they're like oh my gosh. Why is the so healing in what's happening. It's because there's a synergy in energy that's happening in just simple connection of coming together and so it's been a wild ride. I might hit. You know like just continuing to grow in figuring out okay

The Tricky Business Of Coronavirus Testing On College Campuses
"Today. We're looking at how one university is tackling the Corona Virus University of Illinois at her Bana Champagne. Elissa. This is a really big campus right Yep. They have about thirty thousand undergrads and it's massive and beautiful and green and kind of like exactly what you think college looks like. From the movies. Except this year of course, it's a little different. You know everyone's wearing masks on campus when you're walking around. and. There's all these signs to promote mask-wearing and social distancing. There's great. One that says it's a great day to practice sneezing. Smile with your eyes scream with your heart But. The big thing that I noticed on campus is that there are all these big white tents everywhere there, Cova testing centers. You drink. The campus actually started with seventeen places where you can get tested. So students go every few days to get tested. Confronted Denver and they're using saliva tests for royal do is they'll take your mask off. Open up the test tube and you will through into the. Into the test tube and you want the more the better is Dr. Hardest part always. I always think of Lemons in it makes like we have our saliva and my mouth. Well now, my mouth is full of saliva NAD warney. Thank you. I mean students told us that it was really hard to muster up all the spit. A that was emily gardy she and her classmates are part of this massive experiment. It's basically like become just a part of life. It's like so normal there right when I wake up, I put it in my schedule of things I need to do for the day and Cova testing is the very first thing on that list. So, Elizabeth testing every student like whether or not you have symptoms all of them. Yeah. That's right. They're testing UNDERGRAD staff Grad students everybody on campus and students need a negative result from that test to get into buildings on campus and to go to class So. It's the baked into the fabric of daily life. Wow I mean Elissa. That is I have I have not heard of this before the fact that you need to get a negative has to go to class that is wild like how how are they doing this? I'm confused on how you could do all of this. Yes I mean they're doing so many tests. A day and they're able to do it because they developed their test in house they processed their tests at the vet lab. They've repurpose to focus on these tests they're working pretty much twenty, four seven to get the results back. So they're able to get them back so fast like because they're literally working at three am in the lab like they're cranking this stuff out. And when we were there some days, they actually did about two percent of all the testing in the US done right on the campus y that is wild. Okay. It's wild. Yeah. So they're testing a lot like you know more than anywhere else. It sounds like what does that mean for controlling the virus? Are they able to have a relatively covid free semester their first semester? Well, that's what they were hoping I mean in just under two weeks of classes there were more than seven hundred positive covid, nineteen cases on campus. Wow I. mean that's a lot. Yeah. Probably more than they anticipated I imagine that's about what their original models had predicted for the entire semester. I mean not really surprised though it's a really big university. Yeah and it didn't surprise the students we talked to we happen to be on campus. When this big spike happened and the school announced lockdown. So we went to the quiet kind of see what students thought. Here's a freshman that we talked to name Noel Johnson like when I can tell you are like known as a party school. So I, knew that just because we were going to be taxing a lot, didn't mean that they were going to stop partying. So they're doing their best to keep everyone safe, but it's just. The system can't work if the people aren't working with it. So they put all of this money into testing do the university really not factor in the the students would be partying or or what. So they did anticipate partying Becky Smith, the epidemiologists leading the reopening plan. She explained that really they just didn't anticipate something else. So it's not necessarily partying. We counted for the fact that students will party. We just assume that they wouldn't party knowing that they were infected and infectious. Okay. So kids found out they were sick they were still partying. That's right. Yeah, and in one case that they actually publicized, they said a student hosted a party well positive

All right, So the University of Michigan has thousands of students living in dorms and taking in person classes. But just north of there is Michigan State in East Lansing, which is all online. Tell us more what's happening there. So at Michigan State University. There's been a big jump in cases since some students returned to the town last month, and that's despite the fact that they're not taking any classes in person this weekend, the university as students living in town to quarantine for two weeks to help curb the spread. I've been keeping in touch with an MSU freshman named Sidney Harakah Veena. She's living in an off campus apartment with her roommates. I called yesterday to ask her about the lock down, and instead she told me that she herself had just tested positive for Corona virus. I was trying to be safe. My roommates were trying to be safe like we kind of avoided like the bigger scenes like I wouldn't want to go somewhere where I could get it. But like even my remains friends, they don't abide by that. And now it really just like, bit them and us in the butt because we hung out with them, and then they had it. So it really was a chain effect. All of her roommates are also positive, though none of them have symptoms, and the three of them are isolating in their apartment. She told me she's already feeling a little restless eye, but they are so how do these two schools fit into what you're hearing across the country in your reporting? Well what colleges air. Finding all over the country is that all it takes is a small all group of students going to parties for the virus to really start making its way through social circles and into the surrounding community. You know, The other thing is the high positive cases in East Lansing show us that colleges don't actually have that much control over this as they might like right because classes are already online there, So I think it's an important lesson for schools that have in person classes because it shows there really aren't that many good options. For shutting the semester down. That's NPR's Listen that morning. She covers higher and thanks for following this, we look forward to hearing more of your report says You continue throughout the fall of school continues. Thanks so much, Sasha.
Iowa State football trying to navigate the COVID-19 chaos
"Home. NPR's Alison Edward is on a road trip to see several campuses a school year like no other begins. And today she is in Ames, Iowa, Iowa State, Despite all has begun its big 12 college football season. Elissa, thanks for being with us. Good morning. Kick off in a few hours, right? That's right. Yep, it's the opening game of the season. So the issue cyclones are set to play the Louisiana Raging Cajuns. The Spirit team and the marching band will be there. We caught them practicing laissez, all wearing masks. Of course, it won't be. Like other games. There's gonna be no fans in the stadium. Parking lots that are normally full of tailgaters before a game this morning. They're empty. Students told us they're planning on watching the game on TV, at bars, restaurants and in the dorms. Listen, there's been a surge of Corona virus cases in the state. What do we know about that? And the and the numbers, for example, even on the football team that will be playing today. Wait. So this does come at a time when Corona virus cases are among the highest in the nation here in Iowa, and they are testing the football team three times a week. At the end of August, they said. They had a 2.4% positivity rate. So of course, they have to keep that number low in order to play. But here on campus, they have reported they have a 20% positivity, right? And of course, they're not doing mass testing so that number could be much higher.

"Well one thing that I tapped into this will wind into quarantine because I was hearing all these people talk about abuse and strengthen your immune system you gotta do it you know. It's like it kind of sell to me. Energetically like pressure for people like okay. I gotta go take these supplements. Okay I gotTa go do these things. You know to boost my immune system and make it stronger. But who's to say that our immune systems aren't aren't already strong rate for a lot of us so so that leads me to the point of stress. So it's just I felt like it added stress to people's playing of like. Oh my God i. It's like an autoimmune disease where you're saying your body's attacking is out for cancer. Oh my God you could die you just. We went right into that stress based fighter flight mode. Oh my God I'm uses him isn't strong enough. I got a boost. It I gotta make it better so what I did for myself was tap into what to take off my plate instead of add onto my plate. you know and think to myself my musicians already strong like I've done a lot to strengthen it And what really does strengthen as you already know. Drew is is distressing. It's it's number one Living in fighter flight and the Stress Hormone Fear Baseman Mon You know really really compromises. Our immune system is the first and foremost thing that does that. So that's when I did those things what we talked about earlier. Just were non-negotiable for me. The Meditation You know the breath work that just sleeping. Well just trying to take things off my plate so I didn't feel like I. Was you know having to to make sure that I was going to get stronger? I was already. I was telling myself I was already strong. I'm strong and I'm going to get through this. I'm gone through cancer and and I put myself into remission PROC- motives and I'm GonNa get if I get Kobe. I'm going to get through the virus in many. He'll that's what I did myself and I just felt very empowering And the second thing was sleep you know I went to bed earlier and your body resets between ten and two so I was starting to try to get my butt into bed at ten And get those hours every and Regenerating when that body in your body really needs it and then basically. I definitely like the juicy we talked about. I think is huge because it's full. It's like a liquid. Iv of vitamins and minerals antioxidants fighter nutrients I never put fruit in my juices. It's all Greens on a huge veggie. Grill I mean when you eat Greens. You're getting you know energy from the sun and that's powerful stuff so feeding your micro bio and yeah and all sorts of incredible. Yeah and I've been a huge got carson over the years because I had sealy act to on with others really got to focus on your gut and so I'm a big probiotic girl and then I e fermented foods You know I always like actually doing in two to four shots coconut Kefir Day and I eat sauerkraut and I also in a bit on Collagen powder. So I'm you know I. I love that for the Gut. I make my own. D- begin I I have a soup could deliver. So we make Vegan brothel per collagen powder and definitely is a and then I jeff. I'm a supplement junkie so that could be a whole other thing that I love submarines because over the years I haven't felt well ten plus years the the last ten years and really dove into it. But before that I was dabbling. You're not trying to figure out what would make me feel better and the last ten years I've really gone. I just for some reason. I love trying all these different supplements and the quality of Barrowman seen how they make me feel and there's some pretty magical stuff out there so I never liked to overdo it but I know that there's some pretty powerful clean supplements that don't have a lot of fillers and synthetics in them. That can really really help with balancing your immune system so I tried to talk about balancing immune system rather than boosting her now making stronger and so that people would kind of navy taken. Xl and go. Okay you know I I can do. This is not like I'm already behind the eight ball. Because that's that was that was always. My thought process was growing was. I'm behind eight ball. I ever going to catch up or this is something that I'm just going to do temporarily. Why the corona virus is happening. But then I'm going to go back to my other habits. That are there so you know. We always want to have a resilient immune system that can support us because there's going to be a whole host of other things that and their whole host of other things that we deal with on a regular basis a upbringing. I WanNa go back because when you're sharing your journey and you said that now after losing your husband you're at this place where you have to figure out how to take care of your fan family financially and then supporting your daughter's emotionally through this period of like okay. Am I going to get cancer to both? My parents got hit. My Dad's passed away in her so much. That's there and on the context of the Hero's journey at that time of going back to school. There was whether it was conscious or not. I'm very curious about but I always think about like the Joseph Cambell quote you must be. You must give life that you planned in order to live the life. That is waiting for you so I would love to pick up there. How did you go from being at some version of rock bottom in your life to now saying that? I'm going to help people and I'm going to dedicate my life to supporting people who are actually going through. Similar things really good question Because my mind and worlds and been so focused on No climbing the corporate ladder for the most part still on making as much money as I could Because my parents were successful so I kind of you know. Measure myself with bat and same with my husband's family Yeah it was. It was definitely a scary time. Because I'm like okay. If I go this route I still probably have to get a job and make you know an actually make money But when you get put into these situations that you manifest for yourself and you feel you get excited about or you're passionate about and I went to when I got into school I was like. Oh my God this is so fascinating and I think always growing up as a kid I oh I was always a people person I always wanted to please people and always wanted other people with me personally. Wanted to make them feel better when they're in my presence so hopefully had a little bit of that going for me it's sort of Jerry Dover. Into wow could really help people here I didn't think I was going to do as a career in know at all what that looks like and didn't plan that out or anything but when I graduated from my program there was two years long. My good friend brought Cathy gratitude. The restaurant down from San Francisco Cha and she asked me to put a cleanse together for them and I knew nothing about cleansing. I only knew about the master grins but and but because of my marketing advertising background that I'd had for years I knew how to put something together and put the brochures together and you know make it sound good in the writing all of that so and Kathy gratitude food was amazing and clean and it was so easy to put this helping by J pergram together that I I jumped into it and was like yes and let me see how it goes and it was so amazing. I got to hand. Hold these cleansers for five days in. All of them had different kind of health issues. So every time some would say. Hey I've got High Blood pressure or I've got Digestive issues are you know high on hyperglycemia or whatever it was I would dive into the research and try to figure out. Okay what are this? What is his personality? That I could help them and I'd try to dabble a little bit into helping them in. I got so lucky I did back clans. I for four and a half years. Maybe almost five years then year into cafe gratitude. This restaurant and cafe there macrobiotic restaurant in L. A. Which was like ahead of. Its time in healthy food and easy you know. Pick up and go food. I started doing neurotic. Clinton's for them. I put that together. I did that for six and a half years hand. Holy both of these cleansers and seeing what works for them. What didn't work for them? finding out what their life was like and And then I did a little work with Erawan when the new owners took over and I denounced juice for that and I developed a cleanse for them so it was like when you land into something that I think you love and you're passionate about. It's like the universe zero. I know that sound so. La in very like hey girl you know go for it And I was one. That wouldn't take no for an answer so now I just sorta devoured myself into an all for years and I again got so lucky with that foot in the door on trae recap Gratitude and with those people at cafe gratitude because they were all living the lifestyle and I watched them and I was like wow. This is so amazing because emotionally spiritually. They were so much more elevated in. I ever was and I just I said to myself I want back. And we're you putting out. Would you talk about it? Would you talk about your goals? You want to be more involved in this like when somebody gives you your your break and says well you could you create this for us. Could you do that for that? What were you doing to put yourself in the right situation? Yes I was I was I was writing down and manifest seen like you know what I WanNa do with my life is. I want to give people the tools.
"elissa" Discussed on Broken Brain with Dhru Purohit
"I went. Oh Shit sorry. I don't know like a cuss on here but Absolutely back to girls at home. Ten and seven. Both parents had cancer. And as like a what am I gonNa do now is I feel like the girls are going to automatically think they're gonna get cancer the because both of us hide it we battled. It was not lost the battle. The rug had just been pulled out from underneath us on so it was definitely a traumatizing. Time in two years went by trying to get my feet back on the ground. Figure out what I was going to do with my life and how I was to support them financially and also emotionally and physically and one day someone a friend of Mine said. Hey have you thought about going and learning more about holistic nutrition and learning about trauma and learning about all these things that are going to help you in the girls stay strong and so I went back to school then got certified in eastern and Western holistic nutrition and I did all different western modalities in Chinese medicine in our data and herbal remedies and all this great stuff and also at the time was friends and family friends? Doctor Wyle Andrew Wile so it was really cool because I was always bouncing ideas off of him. He was involved in his school in Tucson. So lucky with that connection and just trying to find out ways to really up regularly my immune system to stay strong for the girls and also help them their immune systems at that age as well as letting go of the trauma of and the thought patterns of not feeling. Like wow this is my destiny so I got lucky again. Yeah and I just Wanna I take a moment to. I know you've shared the story before and I. I can't even imagine how challenging it is to lose a partner to cancer but I just want to also acknowledge that. I'm sure no matter how many times you share it. Even though it's been in the past just honoring that moment and all the things that you guys went through as a family and you know the suffering you know where anybody who's had a family member or taking care of somebody who has cancer and you see them in this slow deterioration especially when they're on chemotherapy or radiation is just like it's a battle re you know it's every day and you see them you see them wither and use and it's and it's so painful and so first of all. I just want to acknowledge that my heart goes out to you. Know Union family for everything that was there I WanNa ask you you know just as I had asked you what were the things. That were sub clinical. That didn't get diagnosed. That were going on with you before your own cancer diagnosis. That were an indication of something that could potentially show as a chronic disease in the future. Even if it wasn't diagnosed and you had talked about your digestion you talked about your sleep and and You know other factors even miscarriages which sometimes can be an indication that the body is not ready to have a baby right now. Yeah for your husband for a husband. Who's past when you look at his journey? You had mentioned that his father had cancer. We also know that most cancers from the World Health Organization a lot of the research that are out there. Most cancers are not purely genetic. We know that's right. They could be EPA genetic. There can be lifestyle triggers. What do you think this is all you know? I'm sure speculation but what were some of the things that were going on your husband's life that might have made him more susceptible to cancer emerging when it did. Interestingly they were very similar to mine Except were the immune system part. You know he didn't grow up with a compromised immune system but he did grow up with that emotional Feeling of not measuring up not feeling good enough overcompensating you know for wanting to be successful and so we compared himself to very high level people so he really worked overtime to get to where he felt like he would feel like he made it but he never felt like he made it so it was never gave themselves that breathing room to say. I did it and he never relaxed he was. He was so motivated in such go-getter and he prided himself on five hours..

mother to be Betty Buckley and you know I still we all I still want to be could or any or any other people do when did you start to get an inkling that you were in fact good at it Gli drawn to stories that were really anthropological in nature why do people eat what they eat why living in a city that was really changing dramatically in terms of the culinary world we had gone from a place where I wanna where I'd grown up and you remember it can sales downtown and you could make a life of going out every night and watching this sort of performance of feeding people and enjoying and and I was actually living with my mother and my stepfather at that point on the upper west side and I would cook for them mostly because my mom he was afraid of my mother's cooking yeah and I don't blame him but he wanted me to cook the meals of his childhood he had grown up in Pennsylvania and so I did and I found that I loved it and I was good at it I was a terrible bigger and I remain a terrible Baker but so different it's very different it's very precise and I am not given to to that kind of precision in the kitchen of just just not what I do more of these sort of open my refrigerator what's there what can I what can I create and I became so so involved and so drawn to it that I wound up going to work for Dean and Deluca yeah you got a job where you ran the book department at the time you also went back to school oh you went to cooking school at Peter Institute of Culinary Education and you said that together the two experiences actually combined to form the greatest food and cooking education one could have it was a gift and you know when I think about it now I was twenty five so it was possible for me to be on my feet at the store all day I you know one of those beautiful marble floors and all day and then run back to my apartment grabbed my knife role grab my apron and go to Peter comes which was at that around the corner from my apartment in a in a in a brownstone on the upper upper upper east side and do the evening class there it was a remarkable time to look at that time was still in its original location at one twenty-one Prince and it was the small narrow Oh long store and it was an extraordinary experience I mean we had we had an importing division and the foods that were coming through the store the people coming through the store on a daily basis certainly the art art community Leo Castelli coming in we were there supermarket basically down there but for me to be surrounded by that I couldn't have had a better education and food for for what I ultimately wanted then I got there what made you decide to switch to publishing you started working as an editorial assistant at Ballantine books I five I believe right right that was right after college I started at Ballantine two weeks after college and you know I didn't want to be sitting all the time I didn't yeah I loved publishing and I loved books but I knew that I wanted to try something different and so I wound up the going back to the publishing world when the chef at a new long defunct restaurant called as which is now more recently was east of east of eighth between Seventh and eighth right next to the theatre this right right she they were just opening and she came into Dean and Deluca one day in offered me the job of sous chef which was remarkable and I said what are the out hours and she said two in the afternoon until two in the morning and I said I can't I just can't you know other people would have jumped at that and that was the that was the point at which I decided that being on the line was just not something that was going to be in the cards for me I knew it immediately you then worked as a locations department manager and book buyer at Collins for four years you created a line of books focused on food wine and travel titles I'm then you became a senior editor at Harpercollins and worked as the editorial director of access travel and wine guides now I also understand that you worked at an Internet start up back in the day where you had to go under your desk to take phone calls yes can I actually reveal the name of start up without a doubt it out yes it was called museum network Dot Com and this was in I wanna see a very very end of nineteen ninety nine early two thousands and our offices were on the corner of Prince Rodway Ironically di Di diagonally across the street from Dean Dean and Deluca and I was in this new Asian ship with the woman who would become my wife and the first year of course is particularly crazy and there was no Chrissy and so I used to have to literally get under my desk to have conversations with her and it was it was remarkable it sort of sadly went down in flames in a in a very short time but it is a great way to see if the the DOT com world had anything for me and I had anything for it in the answer was no your future wife Susan Online and you were at that time your profile stated that you were looking for a relatively normal relation and chip with a relatively normal person who actually liked food who wasn't threatened by it wasn't allergic to it and was generally interested in it how easy was for you to find her with that profile back in the day I we met on on AOL AOL had boards they weren't chat rooms but they were board forums right we're forums and there was one four aurum called women who liked to cook and I was in my apartment which was in midtown at that point I had been dating very unsuccessfully for a very long time and I came home from a very very very bad date one night dropped my back eggs and sat down and went onto the form and wrote this thing and slammed my laptop closed and forgot about it the next morning found that they had over two hundred responses yeah really interesting responses somebody responded and said that they were looking the only for a plutonic relationship and I was like didn't you read the part that said that I was an editor I mean is it thinking oh tonic relationship right I'm looking for a poodle lives on blue and Susan I wanNA say two hundred and four. or or something like that and and I literally my finger hovered over the we still talk about this my finger hovered over the delete key and something told me to open it up and I did and why were you going to delete it I think probably because her her screen name was snoot one-two-three fair enough and after After many of the women I had met I was again you know somebody named like you know Beth would be fine snoot one too but I tell me you still call her that well we do sign are cards that cooking woman's noon right I cannot leave I just said that but we we communicated for I WANNA say three months and before we met and Susan as a book designer so She tends to just she does not like the phone she just likes to design and likes to in that's what she does and we finally met and in January of two thousand and we've been together ever since you found then in gardening at season's place in Connecticut Kit you had never previously had a green some what about gardening suddenly appeal teo well apart from the fact that it was the way to this woman's heart of course and the way to her very cranky Yankee Mother's heart who was very very dubious about this Jewish news worker girl who had suddenly arrived at a at her daughter's Home Susan came from a family of farmers Susan's grandmother We're had been a subsistence farmer in Northern Connecticut in thirties or twenties and so they are the kind of people who can Oh seeds at not into not plan but like at the ground and things grow and thrive and I took to it I want take first year together I mean there was you know we were living in northern Connecticut in a tiny little town seven miles from Lichfield and a million miles from Lichfield and there was very little work there the dot com had imploded Susan's freelance business up there wasn't great because it was two and a half hours a from anything and we planted a garden to eat from the garden and I discovered that I really loved it and we spent that whole first year together I don't remember going to the store really wants for vegetables and I I had to think about food in a different way I had to think about feeding this person I met who I was in love with in a different way and it really changed the way I think of during and sustenance tell us about Europe tiffany with Broccoli as a child I like most children I was I was very leery of Broccoli luckily came to can as the Sarah this and spinach and spinach might have come in a frozen ziplock bag I think and I hated that but I discovered that if you cook Broccoli not until it's dead the way my mother used to do and you sautee with garlic and olive oil and sprinkle it with feted cheese and treat it with a lot of love that is very very pushes and I can probably eat my weight in it you launched your extraordinary blog poor man's feast in two thousand and nine and it would go onto win a James Beard Award in two thousand twelve your post take readers on an extraordinary person mold journey often giving way to beautiful recipes you've said that you launched poor man's feast when you realize that after many ours is a cookbook editor at food columnist at a reasonably major national newspaper personal chef short stint as a caterer in Manhattan we're far happier eating a perfectly poached egg on toast at home than eating a vertically pleaded pomegranate glaze swab raw napoleon in a fabulous new cash only eatery on the same side street where your grandfather was mugged in ninety in sixty seven this is true did you have any idea that the blog would end up having the impact that I didn't and and I actually had some resistance to creating it when I did people who were close to me in the publishing world said you know don't don't use the phrase poor man's or poor people are not going to be they're not going to be drawn to it and you know I started writing it as an experiment it was Christmas of two thousand and eight and I initially launched dead as a place where readers could come and read five hundred words of a story about whatever I was going to be including as the the food culinary interest and then have the sort of economical parsimonious recipe Started life actually is something called the daily Fresher that's going way back and little by little I realized I love writing recipes a cookbook editor but there are other people out there who do it a lot better than I do and that's not where my passion is what my passion was was telling stories bringing people together around stories of you know what I call the modern tribal fire this is the thing one of the things that makes us human is the fact that we break had no matter who we are wherever we are what our whatever our lives look like and everybody has a story and so in two thousand a Christmas time I launched this and I thought you know coups GonNa Wanna read long form or long form narrative and everybody told me in your no one wants to read it on Dra right right exactly and Susan designed the the header for me and I hit you know I hit publish and that was how it started and the great thing about blogs is you can experiment you can see airmen with narrative voice you can experiment with style you can experiment with with recipes kind of us and you you know you're with the benefit of analytics you can see what flies and what doesn't fly and across the board the most successful posts that I wrote wording long form stories that compelled other people to tell me their stories and it was it was a remarkable learning experience it was great The blog led to your twenty thirteen book poor man's feast a love story of comfort desire and the art of cooking simple in which you discuss your relationship to in her own town grocery what was your reaction to that she was touched she was bewildered she'd said famously you.

And even if I didn't really like her net flicks reality show. But yeah no, I really enjoyed that. And I enjoyed that moment as well. Which, again, fed into the plastic stuff again, super hardcore, but it was really good in. I was really glad that elicit was there like provide a different perspective on that on the narrative it's being constructed our immune to sorting center on EBay as well of, like continuing to push back against this idea of e b either being trick or just being her doing spooky Goth type stuff which silky seems really hung up on him. So can not been paying attention to ease looks for the past couple of weeks. Knew what and I also love she's like a brook beautiful. Okay. But it's boring. Do it again. I see your doubt there you can move whatever do it again. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Great. Okay. Now for this week's episode. They did snatch game at C which is just snatch game with, with a sponsor. So that was annoying because I would've liked much more of a nautical theme if they're going to do that really, really do it. I don't know how what they could have done to change structure, but like there was there things they could come up with it is his bad. It's one of the worst snatch games in the history of the show, and it's not bad in a like shenanigans g-gonna kind of way. It's just okay, boring and not memorable. There are few queens, who are just just they're just bad. There's not funny. Like they're trying things. It's just not working in awkward, and just massive miss. And then the, the best queens. There are okay, there's one Queen who I think did a pretty good job, who had been like a solid top three but not winner in a different season. And the other two queens in the top three, I would have made like safe in a better season but they have to really like push that these are doing great because the there's nothing else for them to work with so yeah, but then the runway is very good. The category is sequence on the runway so that gives you an idea. So of course, squeeze going to crush that. And then the lip sync good. It's good enough. I'm not worried about over hyping it. I've accord to your thoughts next week. That's all say, okay. Yeah. No, I've been I've become increasingly worried about snatch game this season is progressive. Like these are not comedy queens. And they're not even like, solid, impersonation queens, either. It's just like there's nothing really here. This is a very different type of Queen set, but at the same time all of you knew you were going to be on drag race, which means we're going to be on snatch game. At one point, if you made it far enough so you needed to come something locked and loaded. And my guess is that too. Well, it's like the all know what they're gonna do. They're all prepared. It just the aren't funny. These queens are not funny. They're per their distinct. Personalities can be charming memorable and entertaining. But several of the queens, don't figure out how to channel that into their character. And so while they've done their nobody is like a mess. They will done their research. They, you know, they have references to make. It's just they know who Mariah Carey is they know they now know who Mariah Carey. But it's just like everybody is not memorable for the most part, except for the people who are for the wrong reasons..

"Elissa Litwin. Looks like your neighbor. My neighbor. Your wife, my wife, and she's thirty three. But I made the point is I I mean, she looks like she could probably is. I don't know schoolteacher. I you know, what I mean. I don't know. But. The point of this is that this could be your me. She was driving and she faces charges of manslaughter aggravated assault endangering a child and tampering with evidence while the tampering with evidence. Certainly sounds bad. She deleted her text messages. I don't know how how soon but sometime after the crash that the she was texting and driving in hidden killed a mom and her two daughters in a car, the two dollars are dead weeks before Christmas. It's disgusting. It's horrific and it's just terrible. The. The family has a. Gofundme page, and I usually don't support this kind of stuff because always to need knee-jerk to quit. But this is a little different. They're asking for help to this is different in my eyes for helping bury the two kids. And they what I loved about a two is they have an a nice. Well, well thought out bible verse in there. So I'll tweet out the link to the page, you could check it out if you like. But the US county district she she told the deputies. She was not on the phone at the time of the crash. They asked her one of the things I wanted to share with you too. Is that? I think a lot of cops never find out when a crash happens. And it's because somebody's distracted driving with the phone. You know what I mean? Texting and driving. You're talking on the phone or whatever and they're distracted. I think a lot of cops never can put it in the report because they because the person says no I wasn't because they're like dang. I can't admit to that. And it's not the end of the world, if they don't admit to that in most cases, right? Usually if it's a Fender bender something like that. I know I wasn't you know, what I mean? And and my understanding is not gonna pull it and try to figure it out on something like that. But I'm this. They did. And they discovered the erased him. She later admitted to a racing the text messages after the crash that's the charged with tampering with evidence. So the county district attorney here in North Texas says it is important for the drivers at county to be warned we and this is police sheriff's deputies and prosecutors view. Cellphone use that takes one's eyes off the road. And this is what you and I need to hear. Because this woman did what we do every day. We've you cell phone use that takes one's eyes off the road, even for a few seconds as reckless all caps. The term reckless is significant because the law provides that operating a motor vehicle in a reckless manner, which causes death bodily injury or puts a child at risk is criminal and will be treated that way. And you know, what this could be your me next. And you know what? If it's me. I won't want to be charged criminally I won't want to go to jail for five or ten years. But you know, what? These need to happen. And the more of these happened. The more of us will start going. Well, I don't wanna be this woman. Terr- enough fair enough. Darlan is looking for a new police chief? That's not a big story. Right. Okay. You know, lots of places are looking for police chief garland, that's good sizable city. I'm going to guess one hundred twenty four thousand people that's just a guess out of out of a rump. I'm just making up numbers. But. They're looking for cheap. And so they're serving people in the community. And I think that's good. I got I got no problem with most of that's just to you know, you look good, right? Play the game. Let's not lie and police chiefs are not cops. They're politicians. Let's also make that clear, but what got me on the story from NBC five over the weekend. Is they are going into the Vietnamese community. And I don't have a problem with that. But they're going to the Vietnamese community and they want their input on what they're looking for next chief? And I guess I'm kind of okay with that. But I don't know. I mean, you would think that the Vietnamese community wants what the black community wants, you treat us well and the rest of the bad guys, right? Fair enough. Enforce the laws and protect us. Please. But they went to the, but they talk about how they need. They want. They want the police chief to attend more Vietnamese events, they want the police to they want to hire more Vietnamese officers, and they want the police force of the city of garland to be more aware of their culture. And one of the things that got me on. This really was translators were there to help with communication barriers. The language barrier. They said in channel the channel five story. One of the. This is the believe the city manager. Brian Bradford said having the language barrier added an additional challenge in. Let's hear what he said to channel five heavy with the language barrier..

"Came out with a band to restrict the feminine out of convenience stores to continue to sell because they're ATM. And now I put together a meeting between FSC and this to exchanges for them to provide the necessary kale. I see and also to for them to develop a regular technology software to help our regulators to better monitor that irregular trades as it was you then because I remember you can go into family marked with a little bit of money buy a ticket. And then you get bitcoin put into your wallet. Now, you need your support and your ID. Yeah. So I feel sometimes when regulators do not have enough information in might have misread a lot of signals and Oso the industry must have better communication to inform. The regulators what technology can do to help them. And I think a lot of this is a technology issue. Not so much as a regulatory issue. You said a lot of things that you want to do you have big plans, you're moving forward slowly incrementally in Taiwan is becoming the blockchain away says that you wanted to be, but what is the realistic possibility that all of your plans will actually come to light this Elissa interesting question, I think break into small steps number one. Is we must make sure that the regulation is in place, and we must measure that different departments of governments worked together with industry. So I think they are four layers than I have in mind to implement any. A long term strategy for blockchain in Taiwan. Number one is obviously to provide grants and resources for fundamental blockchain research and technology developments when you do to this Royal on a massive scale among universities and the researching Sousse around the island to ensure that researchers or professors who are studying this technology can give resources to publish paper and can hire teams, and then can work with startups to develop actual technology and usability and number two is on the executive branch perspective, which should enable more industries more enterprises, use Bausch and technology to transform their existing businesses, for example on the financial sector on the cross border remittance on the food industry on the cyber security on the poor. Authority and supply Chan try finance. I think they are programs. We need to come out with to support this industries to use block champ and read to campaign that and another layer is the law must continue to evolve. And also whenever we make the amendments on certain laws. We must allow the industry to know that we are moving ahead. And then we must continuously work with them solicit their opinions when we were of Mendon the law, or when we are creating new regulations and most importantly, very top education, entre Cashin has two layers one is we must create school programs. So that talent can be devolved in universities, and we must provide a novel of education and information. So that general public is well-informed when they enter the criminal investments and stuff like that. So. I think this art of four layers that I feel it's important for long term strategy. Congressman you're working hard. You're working very very hard to non-stop non-stop. I know we've been going back and forth for weeks trying to get on a on a phone call..
