"The idea about people with depression have low. Serotonin but the problem is we really understand. How assessor is improve mood. we know that they do but not everyone and we don't know why they work everyone and we also does this kind of weird bit of the puzzle which is that esser is block reuptake within a couple of hours of taking them pretty quickly but people don't start feeling better for about six weeks. Yeah so this idea that if you have you don't have enough serotonin. We're going to give you something is going to raise your serotonin. Why is it taking you so long to feel better. Sadat was one of the things that i really explored a my chapter mood and i talked to a few different. Scientists have different ideas. As to what the serotonin is actually doing. And whether it is. That people are deficient in serotonin. Or whether there's something else going on in that brain that these accessorize are having an impact on that is then leading to them feeling better and also kind of exploring whether there might be different forms of depression and therefore at that's why some people respond to us rise in some people and some people respond to drugs in general and some people. Don't for some people you know. Psychotherapy is enough for some people. No matter how much psychotherapy they get the. They need the drugs for some people you know they one drug or the first line drug isn't enough so they might take as you mentioned a different formulations so maybe instead of an ria selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. They'll take an s. nri selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. Or maybe there's a dopamine component there or maybe their treatment resistant across all of these types of drugs. And now we've got new things like ketamine or electromagnetic therapy or even you know what we think of as kind of an older more barbaric treatment. But of course it's done a much more humane wayne. Right now electra electroconvulsive therapy and these things actually work for some people yet they can but what really shocks me was that. We don't currently have any way of knowing which treatments will work for which people so it's all trial and error is another one of these people who turns out to be treatment. Resistant is probably taken two or three years of trying. Different drugs to get you to this point of. Oh no you'll treatment. Resistant will end in the united states. It's that's actually a requirement by insurance companies. They're not going to your insurance. Insurers not gonna cover a ketamine trial until you've shown on paper. I tried this drug. It didn't work tried that truck. It didn't work. I tried that. So you're right. It can be years and years of sometimes pretty horrific side effects or or just frustration with the fact that you're not getting better. Yeah i'm on suffering from the depression as well not really long time to wait so one of the scientists..

Stretch our podcast around round the catching around the world here. So congratulations on the book. Oh thank you very much. yeah it's A nice collection of stories. I enjoyed reading reading the book and I want to start out with this Quote that. I just read in the opening that these stories how devastating truce was seemingly within seemingly small moments and Did you have that in mind when you started writing these stories or is that a thing that just sort of when you got the oh. Yeah okay. I'll see that now didn't didn't necessarily have it in my. Although i think i recognize it from works of literature that i've read you know i'm a big fan of the work of the writer. Lee martin and lee martin does that. He focuses on ordinary people and ordinary moments. That become waited with. Meaning you know In terms of the way he constructs the story sent so Though it wasn't a goal. I was really pleased to see that. That's how she read it. And this idea of truth surfaces another author of us to lasting truce to reside in the familiar And two other author your said you can step back. And behold the world and make unexpected discoveries As your any stories riding them in different points of view your audience and First person third person But you are the author of these stories. What did you Step back behold into this work when you get through you know. I it story my story there were revelations so in each story. I had a moment when i finished it when i thought oh. Wow that's where we ended up. You know that sort of surprise that you can that can happen in the in the course of the creative process and then you know with the collection itself at bishop. Early developed a collection and had a meal photographer from boston. Traveling through the south and it was all about him in his life and for some reason Folks that were reading it. They liked him okay. They weren't super excited about it. It occurred to me that the women in the stories not him were the most interesting part of the stories and then there was a point in our culture where people were really turning their attention to the experiences of women at through that metoo movement and it occurred to me that i had a whole bundle of stories that really featured women and so i went back toned down the photographer character in some cases elevated some of the other characters and found that when i had was a cohesive collection that simply centered on the experiences of women and girls and that in itself was really a revelation. I had you know. I didn't really know that. I had that many stories. That would hang together in quite that way. But i was really delighted to find that they did and Have felt really confirmed as readers as a whole sort of a collection. That's that's cohesive and and pulled together based on those themes yourself your woman you grown up. You experienced These moments where you are not as interesting and they interfere with what what women are trying to do. Were there any stories in this collection that Maybe were more personal to you than that other. Well you know there are a couple of them that really resonate with me Like miss not being a ballerina as about of kind of lonely little girl. At who's best friend's mother is getting ready to undergo cancer treatment. And you know. I remember being a kid and i remember having a best friend and how central and passionate those relationships can be and And and that idea that if happens to your parents at sort of up engineer world And so i feel. I feel very tenderly towards that one. The other story that that really The that stays with me. And and i wrote it kind of straight as as a sad story but people read it really a satire and ad i read it to groups and they laugh at it is the story religion about the The lonely thirty year old woman. Who goes to she thinks. She's going to a day coupons class and she had step in a breastfeed irs lake meeting. And you know it's a it's a story about really not being seen in. It's a story about being desperately lonely and you know. I just remember points in my when i felt that way and didn't feel a part of a group or one badly to be a part of a group and you know that's really what drives her. Those are her motivators. She wants so badly to be accepted that she fabricates the idea that she has this child. And she pursues this goal of breastfeeding. So again i wrote it straight but people it is funny. It's really not
"ginny" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour
"Kind of one black girl at school who really only talks to her about being the black girl she knows at school. And there's a fight. She has with her boyfriend. Who is half taiwanese and they sort of both feel in this moment. I think like the racism that they experience is being kind of ignored by the other person and to me. It's kind of an agonizing fight because it's teenagers saying the worst thing that can think of he also winds up saying some. I think pretty absurd things. Like you not not gonna say no. We'll have the oppression olympics. That's not realistic. What did you think about that stuff. I found the overall handling sloppy in a way that like teenagers would be sloppy. Having not fight it's a lot of people assume that i'm the same makeup as ginny right so knowing that i would say like it's not like i've always had the language to like think about it. So yeah i probably wouldn't have said oppression olympics but the pure anger and the way that they were addressing and the fact that it's sloppy that kind of made sense to me but what does bother me. More is the character you mentioned and the way that that character feels like. She is only there when jeannie needs to acknowledge a thing about race while they clearly have actually been trying to make some of the other characters more three dimensional stuff like that aspect of the execution felt more cheap to me than you know the actual scene where they are fighting or some of the other conversations that come up. So much of the show also veers so chaotically between being very very well informed and then being really just unsure about how to describe things One of our first interest to the idea. That jenny is informed about some things is when she takes her english teacher to task for only having white men on his syllabus. Another thing that was really notable too. Is georgia. The mom tries to do her best to raise a biracial daughter. United tells her daughter. Don't let people touch your hair. There is a really really cringing scene. Were that happens. But then in the next episode or so. She dresses up the scarlett. O'hara for halloween. And i was just like what are you doing. Yes and i think too. You know one of the things. I thought was interesting about the scene where she's fighting with. The boyfriend is what occurred to me when i was watching. That scene is like this is a fight that these kids might have if both of them as you see in this show have grown up around a lot of white people and have not had those conversations with you know for ginny with her father's family. She which black she doesn't really have a relationship with them and you know he. The boyfriend talks about how he certainly has close with his dad. Who is the parent taiwanese. But they both strike me as kids who have grown up in white communities. And so i. I thought that part of it was interesting but again it's ten hours long and they're also trying to do multiple like old sketchy daft. Bright send old trauma and one of jimmy's friends who i really like. She has a new girlfriend and is interested in all of that. And how that's going to develop an ginny has a pattern of self harm and there is so much. They're trying to get their arms around in this. Show that everything. I think gets a little bit short-changed in the end. I was particularly frustrated by the fact that they would bring up and traumas for certain characters to give them back story in the never. Really go anywhere with it. There was one friend. Abby who. I couldn't tell if it was in eating disorder or body morphine or event diagram of the to obviously those two overlap and then they drop it for her parents divorce and then i was really concerned of saying that. Eating disorder is born of her parents. Divorce because experts would tell you. That's the neatest way to frame it right but if the show is not trying to be an after school special that i was wondering what obligation do they serve their. But we know that netflix has got in trouble with being kind of glib about these topics in the past but at the same time ginny really gets help for her own self harm issues and things just kind of get dropped in a way that i felt for them. I wanted these kids to get the help that they were clearly crying out for and i think with georgia to georgia can be a very very flat character. A very comically kind of bouncy silly. Sassy southern bell. That's the character at the beginning. And i think that the substitute for kind of rounding out that character more as they talk a lot about trauma that she's experienced and as you can tell if you're listening to this this is what we mean. We say there's a lot going on here. 'cause there's also you know teenage boyfriends and first sexual experience that i actually thought they handled relatively intelligently that. Genie is interested in sex and doesn't really know how she feels about who she wants to be having sex with. And how and all of that but boy. There's gosh there's a lot one of the things that really confused me as to who this show was four was very early on reference to one of the potential love interests as being a shawn. Hunter look away or that kind of archetype. I was like wait. A second to the kids. Know who hunter is. Yeah and that's when. I realized that i am technically older than georgia and had entire meltdown on that loan but adding that boy meets world reference then clued into. Is this show. Four people of you know the mid to late millennial demographic who are still leaning towards this waie stuff because why is a great escape for people of all ages but it's it's a very different than creating waie four young people that maybe that line just doesn't exist anymore and you have to make it more sophisticated for the young people and still nostalgic enough for the older people. Yeah it's it's a very interesting equation of how you get that right. And i'm not sure if the show found the perfect balance at all times the more we talk about it the more. I'm just reminded of this character on. Snl and it's like this show has everything to characters pointing guns at each other followed by a tap dance number like it's just it's all over the place it's amazing to get to the nba. Like i forgot all about the guns and dance did. Yeah so if you do get a chance to wash ginny georgia all the way through part of the way through with a sense of it's chaos in your head. Perhaps we do want to know what you find us at facebook dot com slash pch on twitter a pch. That brings us to the end of our show. Thank you so much to both of you for being here. This is really really fun. This was fun. Thank you linda so much and before we go another piece of news very important earthshaking we want you to know that we are going to be doing an episode about the best muppets and so we need to know what muppets you think are the best you can vote for your favorite muppets.

"ginny" Discussed on News O'Clock
"Welcome back. We're talking with kelly martinez about the netflix series. Ginny georgia. that's recently. Come under fire from taylor swift and her fans for mocking her. Love life in a joke. You know if you only know about the show based on this drama. It's kind of a shame. Because i feel like the show actually takes a very sex positive statements especially when it comes to young women kelly. What's your take on that positive energy. Yeah i absolutely think that's true and you know even not scene in particular ginny and her mom march going at each other about their life choices. And i think the show actually takes a really interesting look at internalized misogyny and how that can create drama between friendships. And i think it's really really interesting. How they tackle these things and you know. Jimmy is also a fifteen year old girl on the show. She's gonna say lines that people don't love and one agree with. She's gonna make some bad decisions like we did when we were fifteen and then you're wrong and i think people need to remember. Also that yeah. The show is about teenagers. who make mistakes and think. That's something. I actually really love about the show. If anything it gives me a little bit of early degrassi or my so called life where it's just. Yeah these teenagers where you just want to like yellow. This green like don't do that don't do that. It's so important. I love that you said that because multiple times. I texted my friend. I'm like somatic chitty right now. Why did she do that. And then follow up going. She's just fifteen. She's exactly exactly but you know what another thing that they also deal with. Great is how they approach trauma how they handled issues like georges abusive childhood and ginny struggles with her identity. Yeah i think they handled that really well and you know. I mean they're sending that. I can't speak to from my perspective in terms of identity but i will say i really appreciated that. They delved into what it can be like growing up mixed race. I'm half filipino. Myself Halfway it so i found that really refreshing conversation actually and i think it's also something everyone can relate to regardless of background trying to figure out where you fit in growing up in high school. But i think that's a really important extra layer because high school experience is unique. It's not going to be just like everyone else. But everyone can relate to something that she's going through in. I think georgia's story i was actually. I didn't expect it to be dark. It's very much not something. You would see gilmore girls whatsoever. But i thought that was really. Well done i actually. It was really hard to watch those flashbacks. And i thought they did a very good job of presenting. Not you know. It's so interesting that you mentioned gilmore girls because you know at the shows core. The relationship is between jenny and her mother georgia. Who had any when she was only fifteen so of course there have already been a lot of comparisons to go more girls. But do you think that are actually anything at all. Honestly no i see the comparison with the mother daughter. The teenage mother. About i really know. I think honestly jenny and georgia is really not like any other show. I've ever seen. And i think it's a good thing that it's not girls actually. Because it's twenty twenty one. We need to be doing new things with shows. I love gilmore girls. I always well a grew up with it. You wouldn't see these types of issues being presented on their. You know because. I kept seeing headlines. You know that we're like but gilmore girls rip off and like the old teen pregnant teen pregnancy and then on top of that. I'm sorry does go. Girls have any non white people you have lane kill. You have lane in that lane so dirty and it's just like but over here it's like we're dealing with gay people who go to the gay person gilmore girls. Exactly thank you something. We've been talking about a law on. The podcast is how waie shows and performers get pushed to the side or not taken seriously simply because they're targeted to teens. You know never ever is an example of this but do we feel like this show could also rise to that level. Yeah i absolutely feel like it. Could you know it actually was reminding me a lot i've never ever when i was watching it. And you know it's number one in the world right now number on netflix. And i think it's actually at an advantage. It's not just eighteen show. It also deals with georgia's struggles and the adults and the town as well. Because i think that will kind of get everyone to watch it. And it's not just enough as a you know a teen drama but it deals with some really serious of and i think it's definitely worth watching and i also think that you know it transcends the teen genre that people might try and like wedged into because also just like deals with at its core just like female relationships mother daughter friendship etc. It's an is beautiful. It's beautiful to watch. It's relatable in that way no matter what age you are Exactly so you mentioned a grassy earlier there are a lot of antastic performances from the main cast but there are also so many amazing performances from the ensemble and given the show filmed in canada. There are appearances from former shits creek and grassy cast members. Does anyone in particular stand out to you. Sarah absolutely plays. Maxine absolutely stands out to me. I think max is first of all. She's like my favorite character on the show because she's just such a force of energy and of life on there and i think great comedic relief for people who don't know she's the queer character. Yes yes. She plays a lesbian on the show and she's fantastic. I think what i really love about. The way she's written. Her sexuality is an important part of her character. But it's not her entire character like there's no big coming out plot necessarily it's not. She doesn't deal with homophobia per se. It's just she just is gay like that's that's who she is and she's just treated like every other character on the show She's trying to figure out her dating life and she goes their rejection a breakup all this and i think it was really refreshing way to see it written dot chie really is just like any other character on this show so we don't want to give away to any spoilers but looking ahead to a season two because commanders totally going to be what what or who do we want to see more of yet so i absolutely want to see more of the baker twins. I love both max and marcus. I'm just very very. I would like to see more of jenny's friendships with the other girls at the school and just more coming to terms with their identity and coming into herself. I'm really hoping that show also explores a little bit more with austin her younger brother. 'cause i think he definitely has a whole story going on there that we don't quite know all the details about and there's definitely clearly more to georgia's toss that we don't know about so it just. It leaves a lot of little mysteries. That i would love to get more answers on if i were to also make a guess right now who wants to see more of it would be. Jimmy is biological dad and joe. Who has the restaurant charlotte dayton literally. After after i watched i was only about halfway through. And i had to stop what i was doing tweet joe because his beer own show honestly like he so beautiful to look at but his character is also just so wholesome and just. He's my favorite character by far And i need to see. I need to see more of him. Obviously i shipped him and georgia's out for that no spoilers for because there isn't anything to spoil definitely. There's something there guys. There i sparked by south bend. Ari glue up so much. No well known him. I've watched him since the days. And i was so.

You're going to have more than likely a succession of really good traits now. Succession of really good. China is gonna make you feel good. It's going to make you feel like everything that you've sacrificed everything that you've learned the pain berry after breaking through that we might not have hit it before you have a successful show. But it's going to by arthur whereby you feel really really really good luck can be good. It's definitely good but it can also be very dangerous yet again so hang hang on man. I'll just work fund the point where i've done something good. What what do. I have to be so careful now. Why don't you just enjoy my says you absolutely can. You can feel good about good. Enjoy your success. I strongly suggest that when you have had a good run toward yourself you either take the money out of the. We'll take some money out of can't or it might not be a lot of money so it might just be successful training. Run in the sense that you not risking a lot. So you're not making a lot but you've just follow the rules really well and if you very happy with what you're right and that's fine. Also the main point is this. I want you to reward yourself so the first thing you've got to do when it comes to managing your success is reward yourself let it be real. Let it be nine. Let it be true. I don't just have something. That is something for short fleeting moment of tom. That is just in your head. Turn into something real. That's the first suggestion i make. So you can actually feel good about it okay. That's really really important. The second thing you need to do is chill because you can't let things slip in and calls to via a from what gave you those results in the first by severe southern. Consider how you got this. Don't think i've done it. I've made it a finally broken the back. This is it for me now. I will always be like this. I can see it working forward. I can see myself. I mean these are good things to do and don't get me wrong. It's not a good idea to feel strongly about future what you don't want to get ahead of yourself and you can get ahead of yourself in the sense that you really don't look speak from a position of doing this obviously. All these abrupt may Mike experiences I did this plenty of times. You get to the point. We got on their. Nothing's ever going to change. I'm going to be doing this for the rest of my life is just all righty from here. What that does is it. Breaks down all the little things that you have had to overcome to get to this point. So you've climbed a wall and you've claunch you've climate and you've you've climbed and then when you get there. The wool starts to crumble and rather than fixed wall continuing to work on the wall. That you've already built and slowly build higher. You'll more focused on building higher and higher and higher so the foundations near the the the first few levels start to crumble and then everything will topple over with it so you need to be very very careful. You don't turn your back all the things that got you to that successful. Run at the point where you have a successful run. You need to be very very cool. You need to go back through a really revised. What got you there. Go through and consider all the things that you'd been three remember all the hard times. Remember all the tom's way you just stopped at by basic and then went on the prophet. Remember the time when you had bad periods go back through your trading records. Look at that. Feel that be one. Would that understand what that was. Because you can't afford to get ahead of yourself. I've done it. I don't even know how many times i've done it so many times so many times the one i got into a good break eventually lot. Look i'm not doing anything different. Einstein exactly the same. I'm not even going to put would of thought into this right now. I'm just going to be. I'm just gonna be. I wasn't any by just bay. I'm just going to be exactly the same as well. It was helping. I'm not getting excited. He's been a good run. But is what i do now. I'm not getting ahead of myself. I'm not doing high fives. I'm not jumping up and down. This is just pod trading also be losing streaks on aware of this. We don't know. When i winning tries o come we wanna losing trades will come we just that if we work approachability and focus on doing the right thing. We will come out on top. That's when things changed. What did they change will. Because of all the emotion was gone all the emotion was gone. Consider you go from a position of going. You know Yes yes yes. I don enough after. I'm feeling grand feeling right to you know. I'm not feeling anything here. Because i've been here before. I know what happens if i get ahead of myself. No mush and let's just carry on with him. One is excitement and joy. And you're going to have that and that's great. you know. This is the cycle of what you'd have to go through. This is the truth as jenny. You gotta do you go to the jumping up and down thing for a little while you do it a few times. You gotta learn your lessons. You've got to go around and around the few times until this really makes sense you when you do get to that point where you're like your this is just normal. Okay back to work. That's probably when you're going to continue to have winning traits. I'm not emotional about my trades at all on the concern. When i'm stopped at. That was a stop. Oh jahmai. Yep those good tried. Don't care that was a great prophet. Yep it was. It was a good trade but next one. I just don't really have any emotion towards things anymore And that's really want to get to.

Socialists Make A Strong Comeback In Bolivia
"Socialist appear to have made a strong comeback yesterday in Bolivia's presidential election. All of the votes have yet to be counted. But the handpicked candidate of ousted President Evo Morales seems to have taken a big lead in the first round. Those are supporters of socialist Louise Arcee, celebrating in downtown La Paz. NPR's Philip Reeves has been following this from his base in Rio de Janeiro and joins me now. Hi, Phil. Hi. Remind us what set the stage for this election. For the past year, Bolivia has been ruled by an interim president from the political right. Yeah, This goes back to late last year, when Morales was pushed out and went into exile. His opponent said he tried to rig an election. They cited an audit of that election by the Organization of American States that showed numerous irregularities. Others dispute those allegations and say Morales was the victim of a coup on elected interim government took over headed by right winger call Ginny Anya's. It's had a rough ride and yes crackdown on the opposition. Several dozen of Morales is indigenous supporters were killed by security forces during protests which polarized country of more Then the pandemic arrived in the electoral authorities postpone the election twice and that triggered mass protests and Nation and the nation wide blockade, and people were worried that yesterday's election would bring more unrest. But that didn't happen happily. So with all of this, how certain are we that the socialist Louise Arcee is actually one? Yeah, I mean, it doesn't appear that he's run out, won the first round outright, his main rival, Carlos Messer, today, conceded Saying that people have to recognize there's being a winner. The interim president Ginny Anya's tweeted, congratulations to us in his running mate Very early on Mexico in Argentina, You know, two big regional players politically on the left, have publicly congratulated him. And so, by the way is the U. S. Polls before the election did show us He was well ahead in the lead, you know as well in the lead, but his chances of winning out right in the first round weren't Sena's full. That great unofficial vote count indicate he's actually done that. But this hasn't been officially confirmed by the electoral authorities. They say the official count could take several days to complete. Can you say Maura about thie us in support of our say the U. S. Did concur with the allegations of border voter fraud committed by more Alice? Yeah, when they ran, it was pushed out. The Trump administration was frankly delighted, is a huge figure on the Latin American left. He was Bolivia's first indigenous president. He ruled for nearly 14 years. He's credited with growing the economy a lot not least through nationalization and lifting millions out of poverty with the help of a C who was his economy minister. S O. The prospect of a socialist comeback in Bolivia isn't likely to go down well in in Washington, the right wing tends to bracket morale is with Venezuelan Cuba and you know they saw his fall is a defeat for international socialism. But the State Department certainly saw the writing on the wall and has recently been saying it will work with whoever is legitimately elected. That's NPR's Philip Greaves. Thank you so
The Parents Are Not Alright
"I'm in the virtual studio today with producer Ginny Moon Hey Jeannie I'm waving to you all the way from Harlem, Hey Maria, I'm in Queens. So Jeannie were talking about our favorite topic today parenting, right? Yeah and parenting in twenty twenty is a whole new level parenting. You know what I have adult children now. So honestly, I am so thankful that I do not have to be raising little kids during this time I just can't imagine. So what have you been doing because how old is your little boy now Medina's turning three it's been an adventure I don't know how else to put it. But in this adventure, you're not really going anywhere, right? No, it's an adventure within the four walls of our apartment. So what's it been like like? How do you even manage it I don't some days and some days I do. I had to cut back to part time. So when everything shut down I, just tried to manage the best I could. But it became too much I. was burnt out I was trying to work at night I was trying to work in his nap times and also like switching gears from mom to try and. Write an email or work I can't multitask again if I have a toddler running around in the background running my life like he's the boss, I can hear my in the background saying Mommy's. But yeah, you just Kinda deal with it. Yeah. I have to say in the beginning the only way I made it through, was my coffee in the morning and passing the torch to the wine that I would have to the day. I know you're tired genie as a parent but the thing is, is that when people are tired, they're like, oh, my God the last thing I want to do is go to work but for you, you're like I'm tired I really WanNa go to work yeah. Because I just WANNA. Work without distractions like how many times a day do I have seen running in here and being like me and like L. And he wants to play and like. Hangman. And it's nice. I had review. On some level, but I really just want to focus for an eight. Hour Day Without a distraction and it's because it's really hard to switch gears feel like women are good at multitasking. But this is not one of those scenarios I wanNA parent when I need to parent and I wanna work when I need to work I can't do both at the same time. So. This whole thing about the schools being closed down like New York City like they try to never close the schools down, right? Yeah. So the fact that they did shut down and they shut down all around the country poses a really big challenge because. Not, everybody can set up for remote learning I mean not everybody has Internet. Some kids only get their meals if they're going to school so. It really has been a challenge on a lot of different levels. So you decided that you like all parents you're like, okay I need to talk to other parents and commiserate and think and see how other people are doing it. So you didn't gather a group of parents I guess virtually right? Yeah I did because there's been a slew of articles about the mental load that everybody is dealing with as parents because you're not meant to do both things at once like you can't parent and work full-time that's why childcare exists and none of this was meant to be a long term solution. But I do want to say before we start that even though we have all been affected by the pandemic, all of us participating in today's roundtable have been fortunate enough to still be working in some format. So we're all healthy and we're all grateful for that but we're barely hanging on by threat. So here we go. I want to welcome from Dallas Texas we have. dinty Cabanas. Hi. How are you? Thank you for having me. So glad you're here I have Joe Marvin Tura from Richmond California. For having me and I have to Haida Alencastro from Orlando Florida. Hey thank you. Teeny. Thanks for having me and just the disclaimer everyone knows to hide it and I have actually known each other for like twenty years. So no surprises there little bit. All right. So I just want to quickly go around the virtual room. And tell me about your kids what you do. This is our Sia I am in Dallas. As you said, I have two little girls wind will be ten in three weeks. The other one will be four in two weeks. And I for fulltime digital marketing manager for. Mary. Kay Corporate here in Dallas Great Jomar. Hi I'm Joanna and I'm in Richmond. That's you know the bay area and my little one is turning three months and I teach elementary school. So juggling the new definition of a teacher and first time parent has been very, very interesting adventure. Into Haida. I have two kids. My son is ten years old and my daughter is about to be eight and a few weeks and I am a systems engineer for Lockheed. Martin but I work from home. So I've been A. Since two thousand and five. Okay. So we're going to start from the beginning. I think I mean I don't know about the rest of you but I think we all were kind of like Oh. This is going to be a few weeks we can do this. No big deal, but walk me through personally what? Each of you guys had to go through and like what kind of plan you came up with to get by for the end of the school year. Well for us like all of you we've had to adjust we did not work from home originally We were released for spring break and never came back. We were told we were going to stay. And do you learning and so it was a shock I'm not gonNA live my husband and I freaked out a little bit. But then we had to pivot really quickly. Right what are we going to do? Do we have the right equipment to we have the right setup at the House Both of our kids are in the same school. So that was one good thing because it was need to everybody. So the school they know what they were doing. We know what we're doing the girls were like what's going on? So the ambiguity of it all was really challenging for all of us. But we just started getting a routine down our dining room became our command center. So I would say the first two weeks were horrible I'm not GonNa lie but I think we've all pivoted. Can and so I was pivoting at home I was pivoting at work. And even with myself like how am I going to take time for myself and you know lose it But I'm not allowed I'm sure I'm not a lot. Of. This

Dr Kate Welcome to the broken being pot. Adding more LADES, you're young man, you're only forty-three. There's a lot more accolades you can add to your resume over the. Perfect job. A Mike my goal at the end of the day to help kids feel better. That's beautiful. Goal a beautiful purpose and I can't wait to dig into that in today's podcast and I wanna get into a little bit of origin story. How did you get clear and where did all the puzzle pieces aligned himself that that is your goal. You know. I think the universe was calling me. To do this. The first reason why I got into, it was for my own health up as a kid, I had pretty severe anxiety. SPENT, most of my adolescent teenage years in mix of anxiety and depression yo and. My nervous system was upside down and I couldn't really understand why I knew that I was different. I knew I experienced the world differently, but I really had no clue why you know like who would have thought that eating fast food everyday. All Day will be an issue for for your nervous system going bonkers is that what was going on? Were you eating fast food and kind of go? How is the standard American new way of life I mean college like that's what you do. Right Even I remember actually Loma Linda is a vegetarian institution. Why it's famous for being one of the hospital in the Blue Zone. The seventh day adventists. Yeah. But when I got accepted there, one of the thoughts that I had is like Oh my God. What am I gonNA do without my burgers. And that was the mindset I had going into training because I didn't know any better and what actually got me to start looking outside was during my training. I kept kept coming across these cases and I remember one very, very vividly. Twelve year. Old Guy. Severe Severe Colitis. Came in with toxic, Mega Colin were his colon had dilated to about ten centimeters, which is huge, and we did around the steroids. We did some medications for him. He got better when home. Two weeks later, I was still on service. Worse off than before and Beato, our team started the discussion and we brought in all the specialists and basically the end of the discussion was well, he's failing medications. We just need to cut out his colon literally was like he failed medications. So the next option is we just cut out this twelve year olds a lot inflammation. Something's going on. Let's just cut the thing out. because. That is the next standard of care, right. I had a lot of these kinds of scenarios where kids would show up like I remember another guy who plays soccer. He scraped his knee niece bowl up and then thirty six hours later, he was dead. You know and they were just like well, sometimes staff does unlike I've scraped my knee, I haven't died like, what was it about his system that caused him to fall apart and it was this recurring question of like these things don't add up two plus two equal in this scenario and the institution, and they're really smart people alone Linda, don't get me wrong. But the pediatric conventional training was like no two plus two equals farm like it doesn't look this way. So as it is in most hospitals and worst Western approach. Places. Because that's what people are trained in. But you were asking a different question. You're like, okay. This doesn't make sense what's really going on. Exactly. Yeah, and that is what ultimately led me to start taking courses. So I, I went to one holistic kind of course, and it was a dinky little course, but I was like, oh. My God I, you know I have found my people, the light bulbs went off and you started connecting dots. And then from there I went and did a bunch of training with Institute of Functional Medicine and the trading with the University of Arizona, and in the midst of that, I started realizing the pieces that were affecting me so like. I did the elimination diet and started feeling better and then I found myself to have MTA. And I think my initial homocysteine was sixteen when I first tested it, I'm like Jesus. So I started injecting myself with B twelve and you know I was my own best Guinea pig. And in the midst of getting interested, what also happened is Loma Linda's in didn't have anyone that was getting interested in this stuff. They're like, Hey, you wanNA, start a holistic medicine clinic and. Like. Two years of my training and there I was like all of the sudden getting handed these patients you know and I was the expert even though I basically didn't know that much. But through the process of learning and I was really really privileged to be put in a place where you know fifty year olds, I was a pediatrician fifth year olds with Severe Lupus. Land in my doorstep helped me I'm like. I don't know anything about Lupus. So let me learn so I. I spent all this time. Just researching in learning. You know any person that I could find with any material they had on the Web I was reading books listening to the videos. And I was just consuming all of this information in the midst of that. Also learning from my patients,

Is meant to be inclusive it I can, if you can be coming to it from any religious faith or no religious faith. to me, it's spiritual, but I I really respect where everybody is coming from in their own spiritual journey and I try to put things out there as suggestions as thoughts ideas that people can figure out. How to make them work in their own lives. And in their own journeys. And Yeah. It's never about telling people what to do or what to believe. Yep in in the I mean that's. That's an important point about this. When we talk about the word, preaching is in the title You can't always tell a book by its cover and certainly. While there is, there is some aspect of of kind of advice book About it it also as you say I think I. Think you really. You really nailed it Ginny. Sassaman that the book is much more. Suggestive than than prescriptive I would say and one thing. I wondered about in fact it was a in terms of. You talk about meditation as a key to happiness for a lot of people in in its benefits, and and I was just thinking I you know I've had some people on the show discussing the fact that people being home a lot and looking for things to do, and maybe not finding productive things to do as much as they should during this whole cove nineteen crisis Lot more substance abuse. Going a lot of a lot of you know we. We hear reports.

This is a great show. I'm kind of calling with a shameless plug. I work at bear pond books in Montpellier and we're helping Ginny to launch her book with a virtual book launch on Wednesday evening, and I just WanNa urge people to attend that and to pick up the book. Do have copies on the shelves right now. The store is open. It's a fantastic book and I also mentioned you know the title Preaching Happiness and the fact that they were they were sermons. That Ginny had delivered I just WanNa say if people are maybe feeling off. Put that it might be a religious book. I just want to say that it's not. It's a fantastic. Book about everything that you've been talking about about happiness on the personal level I love the information about. Policy Making and how we can really affect change at the policy level and I I also urged any lawmaker legislators senators. They should all be reading this book so that they can see how to best create support system for wellbeing. That's kind of my little plug for the buck and I. I love the discussion. Thank you all right. Thank you, Samantha for the call, and that's actually that's actually a good point. I think it's worth mentioning that you know I mean if somebody is actually looking for book with a lot of religious content. Maybe this isn't for them, but he doesn't have lots. Doesn't have a lot of religious content it is. It is something which will certainly appeal to to to secular readers as well as as well as people who are people of faith or whatever you know. I think I. I actually think that that. the the idea of of these being sermons a May. Maybe a little bit of. I I. Don't know if it quite, it's not. It's not what I would think I in that category.

"I wanted to mention the fact that normally I'd be saying about this time of the Graham show on a Monday just after the ten thirty break that don't forget it eleven o'clock we have a news conference coming with the governor, but that is not the case today. The governor has been holding news conferences about the states response to the Kobe nineteen crisis Every Monday Wednesday and Friday wd. DVD's been carrying live and. We're changing the schedule this starting this week the governor's GonNa Guess. Slow the pace of these news conferences down to twice a week from three times a week and it appears the schedule is calling for them to happen on. Tuesdays and Fridays, so we will not be carrying the governor's news conference today and said we'll go to common sense radio with Bill Sayer after the day Graham Show but the Governor's do will be on a wd just after eleven o'clock. Tomorrow morning and then again on Friday. Updating folks on what latest is on the governor's efforts to slowly reopen the remind economy and restore some to normalcy in our the lives of our states. In. All the all the work of the top state officials including. Mark Levin and others who have been so so dedicated to try to work through this crisis in Vermont has been paying off. Say Vermont's numbers are looking relatively good. compared to what is happening in many other places. And it seems as though a lot of the strategies that are state officials here have been using a in response to the crisis have been. About the best you can do and so hats off often that regard They have obviously more work to do as we all do, and they'll be talking about that on Tuesdays and Fridays going forward on these. News conferences the WB will broadcast live so on Tuesdays and Fridays and keep the heat the KNOB. Right where it isn't a. don't touch that dial.

You know I'm sure there's GonNa be a bunch of things they're going to be tossed out. The bottom line will come down to whatever evidence. This woman nets well can produce to provide leverage for herself. Jury's out on that literally, so we'll see what happens there. Something tells me you're not going to talk more about this in in the in the weeks and months ago. Yeah. Right well I I I don't know it's a it's so sordid. I almost wish we didn't have to. But on the other hand you know as a news item it's. Kind of fascinating, it's a slice of human life I guess that just you go what? In any way you know what gave a message solutions, great listeners and Waterbury about it right parents. Know exactly what your kids are doing. You know yeah waste. And and don't be afraid. You know to be apparent. You're not their friend, you the parent and and know who they're communicating. Know who their online with monitor social media chatter monitor all of it. That's where this stuff starts so strong lessons, everybody. Yeah that's. That's an important message. There Paul Begala of CBS I. Really Appreciate You joining me this morning to share it and. We'll talk soon. Thanks a lot. All right. Let's go to work with. We have a caller in a line. Is Fred from newbury still with us? Yeah. Good! Morning, frayed. Do you think the people responsible for witness protection can prevent. Maxwell from committing suicide. live course you're asking the question of what to Jeffrey Epstein. He was incarcerated and was suddenly dead. and. The official line. There's a suicide. A lot of people have questions about that. The. I don't know I. Who knows I mean they were not able to to prevent. The death of Jeopardy Jeffrey Epstein. Just. I, don't know it. It's really hard to speculate I. I mean I I hope so. You know if justice needs to be done here and and this this woman could be a key witness in bringing some justice. then let's hope. He stays alive long enough to do that and. I can't tell you whether she will or not. Obviously I don't have any any inside knowledge of. She does that suicide you'll be? You'll be the biggest scandal. The twentieth century. I mean. Well accepted. It's twenty first century Fred. Reports that you. Would get. would. Be believable I mean I can't imagine the government allowing her to commit suicide. If, they can't prevent it then they're inept. I you know the question is? Whether. The The Whether With one prevent you know there's another question Yeah, well, that's. Good. That's that's a good played game. Now my question is would you like to go into witness protection program. I know no I wouldn't. I don't want to live a life that were ever leave to lead me to be. Lead me to go into the witness protection program? I. Just, have had a I'd say fairly innocent life. I'm glad that it never hung out with Jeffrey. Epstein or Jillian Burge. Whatever name is Maxwell. and. I had an insulated Q. Look the other way. Yup! So I. You know who the heck knows I mean. I think that In some ways, this story is sort of a the salacious scandal that scandalous aspects of A. Kind of grossed me out, but on the other hand you know human trafficking is a serious issue. In our society, and if this woman was in in involved in a circle of human traffickers. you know I. Hope I. Hope she and Oliver. Cohorts Go Away for a long time, and that's pretty much the bottom you know, but what do processes important right so you're saying that I agree with you. She's got to have due process and did she commit suicide? Doesn't sound too good. Yeah, I mean. I agree I agree. I mean I. I hope that I I hope that folks are smart enough to realize. They basically just can't let that happen and. To have her die, following Jeffrey Epstein's death would be Just really On the other hand, then you have to ask yourself, so who would bring the consequences there you know. I mean you really didn't know heads of rolled that I? What's that? The federal government would have to be charged because I would imagine. The government is protector because that was a federal current. Well The federal would be responsible for her protection. The federal government projector, so she didn't have a trial. Something wrong! Yeah yeah all right well Fred. I gotTa go, but thank you for the call and. Let's keep our eye on this one. It's going to be a weird weird case for sure either way. Anyway, it turns up. Or use a weird case. I need a dose of happiness and I said to myself I know what I'm GonNa do I'm GonNa Bring on the program today. Ginny, Sassaman. A writer and UNITARIAN preacher from Callus who just produced a book called Preaching Happiness. Just joyful world and We need someone at right now, so let's talk to Jimmy Sassaman for this next bit of the day Graham Show here wd. Fm Am I believe. She joins us on the phone right now and genie I don't know if you knew this was going to be a rescue operation today, but might be happening. Yeah no question. No question. It was there an ancient Confucian I believe curse. May You live in interesting times. Are, interesting times we are in. Times and from from my perspective that is why. We need to understand and to nurture and cultivate. happiness both personally and fourth grader. Good more than ever. To me. It feels like the times are very. Precarious. But at the same time. FULL OF HOPE We were not headed down. Pat In so many ways. And, the people that were in is actually providing an opportunity. For us to move forward in a much more positive way and for me, that is where happiness comes in. Yeah, it's it i. i WanNa talk about the connection between a sort of the your personal happiness and your. And sort of social happiness, because you've been very involved in gross national happiness, USA and Efforts to promote happiness as a standard by which to measure. Social indicators so that's that's sort of a Mac. Yeah the macro level. Of happiness, the micro level of happiness, I've been reading in your book over the weekend and and finding you know many discussions about how People's own personal thinking in habits of thinking really can have an influence in their own lives and then make them a better. Participants in efforts to to enhance the broader social happiness so talk about that connection there between I guess I'm calling at the micro level in the macro level, but maybe a better terminology for it. An eight micro and macro works for me. I think of in mostly in terms of individual happiness and well-being and communal or systems change for happiness and.
The Dark Side of Enlightenment
"It was march. Two thousand nine, and in a big chain hotel in New Jersey a crowd milled around waiting. Once the doors opened everyone headed for the same place. It was launched auditory with a big stage in front. The event was called the harmonic wealth weekend, a rigorous two day seminar that promised to get participants on the fast track to personal and professional success. It wasn't the kind of thing ginny. Brown was normally into. A daughter Kirby had insisted that they go together. As they walked in, she had to admit the atmosphere was exciting. And we had to walk through a gauntlet I will say a cheerleaders who were jumping up and down reading up the energy in the room and. I remember saying to one woman man you. You girls really had your coffee this morning and she said to me Oh. We don't drink coffee like that's poison Oh. Okay well I do I love it. As everyone took their seats. The lights dimmed. James Arthur Ray stepped onto the stage and began a version of a speech. He often gave. Let's talk about what's changing right now? In your world, you see I firmly believe that you live in the most exciting time in our world history. Time where scientists spirituality are realizing that their sister studies. James was tanned with a bright white smile, wearing a bright white shirt. Pretty Trim Athletic Build. Daily good-looking just can't get going in the morning with on conflict. Give me a fricken break.

You've got a Mercedes. onstage he talked about reflecting on yourself and your position in life. Then, he began to pull audience members onto the stage and ask them questions. And I'd like to have for two volunteers to help me out here. I need a couple of volunteers. Okay, come on, both come on up. Give him a hand. Give Up. First Jimmy was impressed I was fascinated by his ability to really read someone. Who Read people really well? But as she watched, something began to Nag at her. There are a couple of times where he brought people up on the stage, and had them reveal very deep, personal troubling. Things in their life. Ginny is a clinical social worker and I sat there thinking. was trained therapists. Those are the kinds of questions I would ask. If someone was sitting in my office, not in front of hundreds of people I was both fascinated and uncomfortable. She turned to her daughter, Kirby who was mesmerized. Just said you know that's you know that's. That's really not such. A great thing to do. But Kirby was focused on James, Kirby was in her late thirties and had bounced around careers and relationships. She wanted more success and stability in her life. Jennie knew that Kirby had been doing her own soul searching and the James Teachings had already helped, and she was going to stay there to get the most out of the experience whether she believed everything for not. But neither of US ever thought. He was dangerous.

"Ginny but an awful lot of people are saying something needs to happen and it's simply needs to happen they're going to have a tremendous amount of debt they're trying to alleviate them a majority of that debt but they're going to have a debt that's going to have to be contended with and they are going to have the expenditures that need to be made in order to bring their equipment into line eighty eighty a tennis our telephone number eighty eighty eight ten let's grab Tom here in Fairfax before we take a break Hey Tom welcome to KGO I'm well Tom you so I had a question yeah so he was allowed to allocate and manage their resources as they stopped yet do you think that things could turn doctor would have turned out the way they are now what do you mean well I what was preventing them from using their resources as they saw fit right so the state of California requires that a certain percentage of P. genies energy is provided from renewable resource right another state law that requires them to function in a certain way is the hiring that they accentuate their required to hire a certain number of minorities and this that and the other thing so they're basically not really allowed to allocate the resources as they see fit not probably prompted a lack of maintenance on their equipment it's probably from how how did that problem to a lack of maintenance on their equipment because they had to allocate the resources that they had to what the priorities were for the state with regards to providing renewable resources than the hiring of minorities as opposed to what you need so why would first of all the hiring of minorities why would that have any relationship whatsoever to the amount of money that's spent on safety it's just an example of another state requirement that they had to abide by their art requirement okay then no no I I think no I don't think so I think there are of and there's a good reason for there to be regulations in place for P. Jeannie they are effectively a monopoly most of us don't have a choice of where we get our electricity from there aren't other companies in our areas that are competing for that and so there are many requirements that they have to fulfill and one of those requirements is the removal of vegetation and safety those requirements under law right but the point is it don't you think that if they necessitated are found it necessary to do that that they would have done it on their own rather than I do I I I see nothing I see nothing whatsoever that would indicate that that's the case what your follow up my follow up is wouldn't it be better as a private corporation if they were able to allocate resources as they stop it presumably minimizing their liability for all these fires I mean basically the reason they turned all the electricity off was because they were unable to allocate resources as they stopped dead but I think Tom I think you're wearing they're not used and there okay Tom Tom I'm I'm running I'm running late so I'm not trying to be rude but I do have to cut you off here no no to everything that you've said let's understand that P. Jeannie has a history of falsifying their documents if you followed what happened after San Bruno with the explosion that destroyed people's houses and killed people it was found that P. Jeannie was falsifying their records that they were not reporting accurately that they had neglected to new to do their mandated maintenance for a long period of time and that that was the cause of the fire that killed people and destroyed people's property in that was gas the gas line in terms of their electric a line maintenance there's no reason to believe that the same things were not true they had requirements that had to be met virtually every time they asked for an increase in rates that rate payers had to pay they were granted those increases rate payers were paying over the years to get the to get him to provide the safety and to remove the vegetation that could catch fire if something failed additionally it is an investor owned utility and they were paying out arms and tons of money in stock pair options they were paying people are the paying the people dividends and instead of spending that money on the safety requirements that they had so no I don't think the P. Jeannie without oversight would be doing the best thing that they possibly could be doing would be acting more responsibly they have been acting completely irresponsibly and I see no evidence whatsoever that not keeping an eye on them would make them act more responsibly eighty eighty eight ten this is K.

"How you valuate problems in relationships is probably the most important thing, you can do to really gain some freedom to choose your, life course. So we're talking about your future book. But let's focus on what's already out there. Let's make sure that everybody knows that what's available now. Because you said before we came on live that it's a great story that connects to what we're talking about today. What is the give me the title of the book again? It's course correction of is that correct? That's right. Oh, gosh. What is the subtitle? Is author. Let's just stick. With course. Correct. Correct. It's in the show notes that bold linked to that. Really? Of course correction is a memoir that it's a coming of age story that starts with my quest to really starts with my fallen in love with Ryan the first time I saw rowing shell and takes me to age forty. And basically intertwines my athletic pursuits with my own search for like who am I? And what what how am I going to be in the world? So it's a lot about family and love as well. I won't do any spoilers here. But it goes pretty deep into what it's like to learn to row not from a real technical place. I'd like to think that it's a more literary book than a than a step-by-step book. But if you're for people who are interested in the history of women's rowing or sports, if they're interested in one person's very personal story of what it took to become an Olympian. They're just interested in human interest stories, right? Those are all reasons to read it, and as you pointed out earlier people give up too soon, and your I mean, your persistence or flat-out stubbornness. To not let those kind of hurdles, and I think that, you know, for people that were like, you know, what what is what is their inner strength. What is it that is going to keep them going when you're sitting on a bus freezing cold, and you know, have a twelve mile ride. You know, what are you going to do because you love it so much and your book is extorting extraordinary in all of that. Ginny.
