Thinking Like A Business
"I wanted to talk about something that i feel like has been rattling around my brain for a while recently. And it's this observation. I've been having about my own experience. Where i time and time again. I find myself really wrestling or struggling with a choice. I need to make in my business and Ultimately when i kinda come out of it and m settled on solution i can look back and i can. I get this feeling that a lot of why it was such a difficult choice or why it was such a difficult decision is coming from in some ways continuing to treat business even though it's like twelve years old at this point Like it's a hobby project. I'm doing that largely because that's how it started like it started as a side project. It started as something that i did on the side of my my my other work and i think that in some ways instilled a lot of bad habits or a lot of tricky sort of like mental gymnastics that i continue to go through now around. How treat the business around. How i make decisions or how i make choices and it's a dangerous thing i think and i think it's held me back from a lot of choices over the years that i can sort of point to where i feel like in some ways it's like. Oh this is like the indy way and unlike doing it the indie way. And it's like we can kind of you know. Serve tap into sort of to each other on the back. And be like yeah. we're indies. Were different but then sometimes that difference is actually just where like like making poor choices and make them sound like they're they're cool and this was crystallized with the slice that has been bounced bouncing around in my brain for a while recently i feel like it crystallized in a weird way for me with a comment that job linski one of the hosts of the release notes podcast which is also excellent if you like under the radio at least notes at recommended. Joe is saying something that i think just like. He is slightly slightly pokey way that he's he's known for. He's talking about the serve the privacy badges and There was sort of the in some ways. People who kind of feel like have been in our community been viewing the sort of like i collect no data as a badge of honor that they wanna go into their privacy and they wanna be able to say like no data collected. Look at me aren't awesome. And he just loved it he said is not collected is probably means that you're not running a real business. It's not a badge of honor. It's a signal that this is a side project and the harsh deliver us. But i think what he was saying. It's like it spoke to me and like whatever for me personally. When i read this is like i wonder i'm treating my projects as side projects because so often that is the kind of the view that i have and like. Oh man i wish i could serve. Check the data collected box. And it's like why. I say probably because in some ways kind of you. What i'm doing is a slide project. Even though it's my main business what i've been doing for twelve years but just because in some ways it's just me doing it. I think i often just treat it. Like it's a side project that i'm just like pretending or i'm just like this is. I'm not treating this like it's an actual a business making real business choices. I think there's there's an important line to draw. Between being able to analyze decisions like business would analyze them. And you know how to how to teach yourself to do that when you start indie or or you come from a non business background or you come from modest background like which is true for you know definitely us And and you know we find ourselves running businesses basically but you know you have to kind of train yourself to think like a business with certain decisions and so that's one side of it. But i think it's important to distinguish between that and the the kind of you know less clearly good side or actively bad side of like excusing bad behavior with the thinking like well. It's just business. You know like i. I think those are two separate things. And it's important to draw that
interview With June Ambrose
"Listen up. This is going to be such a fun. Episode of checking in with michelle williams. I've had a few moments with my guest. June ambrose as it relates to mental health and fashion and there was an episode that we filmed on his show she had on. Vh wild cod style. By june ambrose. I was so insecure. Because i was coming out of well. It'd been a few years. Since i was a solo artist. And no longer touring. They're singing with destiny's child. I was trying to find my style footing outside of the group. How was trying to refine. It actually couldn't refine it. Because i had to define it and june. Ambrose really really helped me with that. Will we found out that it was deeper than defining my fashion sense. We discovered so much fear in me of walking alone doing something by myself so she said to a place where it was a cia trap. He studio where i only thought that. If you're training for gymnastics or the circus that you should only be going to these types of places but going into that trap appease plays when you have to stand on the ledge. I literally burst out in tears. Because i had a revelation that i was scared to take the leap by myself. That was just a personal nugget. I'm just so thankful to june for helping me discover that once again at went beyond anything that she was going to put me in fashion wise. It went beyond anything that surge on the makeup artist was gonna do with my makeup. It went beyond any even. They dyed my hair but none of that mattered. If i was going to continue to walk around with so much fear hours just literally gonna look fierce and be fearful and wanna be fearful some just so thankful to june for helping me take that leap of faith. Now i want to welcome to my podcast. June ambrose and amazing style icon herself but she has made her clients to be celebrity style icons as well especially in the hip hop world for superstars like missy elliott and jay z. And so many more. She's also the creative director for the global brand puma. And when she's not on my podcast she's an n. b. man costume designer for some of the biggest music videos and tv shows. But let me tell you something. She's also just a fabulous friend wife and mother please welcome. I can call her my friend. Y'all please welcome june ambrose. How category. I absolutely absolutely. I really wanted to just speak on your joy. And also the psychology behind your styling. But as i was thinking of people to be on this podcast especially those that are walking their journey to have a better quality of mental health. As said june. Ambrose is always smiling. June ambrose is always full of joy and i was like i never see her in a bad mood and i just wanna know june. How do you keep your joy. It's really exhausting. To be sad it'd be sad instead of the other way around. Yeah like it's. I find that you know i. Smoke is joining that. Were on in life. The cycle we think it's as we're living but it's going very slow but it's actually going really. It's a short trip you know. We're lucky we get a hundred years. You know so. I tried to make everyday count. I try to even on my worst date on on our bed. Dang something happens that may be upsetting or disappointing. I know that it won't that you know there's always a tomorrow. Hopefully yeah if. I want there to be if there isn't gonna make this moment joyful. Yeah i just to tap. And i think since memories really help you to kind of stay happy you know when you tap back into those moments that joint like always tell people that hate taking photos if you feel awkward and uncomfortable in front of a camera tap into like sense memories and think about the feeling the emotion not about. What's in front of you but think about what's inside of you. You know that constant reminder that technique is something that takes practice so if you work on tapping into the joy. When you're in pain you'll be able to call on it even if it doesn't it doesn't sustain you for length of time. At least you know you have the ability to tap into a good feeling. You have that choice now. Some people struggle with not being able to tap into their joy. You know for for many reasons. But i recognize that is one of my superpower so i like to share it and it's just again. It's less exhausting. it's more fun being degi. Hear what she said. Did you get those nuggets. I mean because i feel like you were saying even if you are having a bad day you don't you're not gonna let it turn into your worst day and i also feel like if you're having a bad day some people will let everybody know around them that they're having a bad hair then you make everybody else have a bad day for michelle is kind of also you patient than than a man in space and i'm in creative space also working with celebrity talent and working with corporate big companies beauty brands in different scenarios and being on camera you after how to put that away and not bring that into the space right. So it's like you can't walk into a classroom day you know. You can't go on camera with a day. You have to find a way to pack away.

"Went to sleep. You know the next day. I woke up. Like gymnastics gymnastics gymnastics Nobody else in. My family liked to watch gymnastics. No one knew what it was and it just came out of nowhere. It just never went away And i believe that. That's something that i share with the boys in the gym. And we have that connection. So i know that the other thing about gymnastics and i wanted to go ahead and jump in and ask technically was his question around masculinity gymnastics and the perception that people have of gymnastics. Before you go into that question. I wanna make this statement. I've never heard anyone. Questioned the masculinity of men or boys gymnastics and. I've never met anyone who has heard anyone questioned the masculinity of poisoned gymnasts. I have heard or met people who've seen someone posted online. Oh a black man. Didn't think gymnastics gay black men with dominate gymnastic. But no one has ever actually heard anyone say that and so this conversation makes me upset because what happens is you have people who go based off someone who's hurt something someone who may have says something but they don't know who those this young man online who is talking about. Oh every growing up. Everyone thought gymnastics was game. If they wouldn't. I would have wanted to do gymnastics. I asked him. I said who said gymnastics was game. He was like oh every. But i said no. Give me a name. tell me your person. He was like no one. No one actually ever said it. But you know i said no. I don't know i said tell me. And he couldn't say anything i said. Why are you online spreading lies. So now i'm upset and so so before we get to this. This really upset me because you will never find anyone who says that gymnastics is girly gymnasts unmanly but for some reason. That's the first thing people want to go to. That's the narrative that started online it did not exist in real life. But but that's says. That's exactly what i was was going to say because i'm so glad that he will. It took away the three quarters of questions but it was like i don't wanna talk about this is not important is not real. It's something that's made up. I think he. I think the question was about because you answer it. He wanted to talk about. I guess that perception online or what people are saying and you kind of answered it already. So i just wanna clarify what i was gonna ask. I wasn't buying into it what i was saying. You're saying i want to ask you if you experience people who have that myth and where do you think the myth comes from. Because i was thinking saying the same that we've never seen this thing ever held anywhere every every hood got every hood got a tumbling team my brother. Og bloods gang.

"I wanted to know what are the actual reasons as a way to help. Dispel the midst because for example. I know one thing is. It's not easy to find a gym or a coach or things that you can afford. It's not like on with basketball when i was growing up. If you could get a hoop and a ball you're often running but you know with the local. Most local parks had a hoop and i would like the narrative to get out about. What are the real reasons why you know to dispel because i feel like everybody if they could if someone could teach them how to do gymnastics they would love to learn how to do gymnastics. And and that's what i would like to talk about not the midst. But what are the real things that might keep a blackboard. Who's interested in doing gymnastics from getting a chance to say about people thinking that Gymnastics not masculine or people starting that narrative and our community anything that a man does. That's different from what the i guess. The community mainstream man does escape. The mainstream man eats sausage for breakfast and another man coverage. Someone's going to say forages gave if the mainstream man wears light monochrome clothing and another man wears peach in the black community. They're gonna say oh peaches gay so anything different or anything. That's not the norm is labeled as gay and so no matter what you do no matter what a black man does. That's different than what a larger group or subgroup of black people. Doing if he's if he does is going to be called gay. That doesn't necessarily mean that black people are calling it homosexual but the label gay is just what black people have given to things. That are different and i mean i didn't start it and i don't know who did but that's if it's different escape. That doesn't necessarily their meat. They're calling someone homosexual but that's our label for different things now to get into the question of. What are the reason so. I've been doing this on almost in about three months. It'll be two years. And what i will say is Gymnastics is a performance for and black people the worldwide not just american. We do not get involved in performance. Sports and the reason is is because there is a very low competitive aspect for performance force. Black people love to be loud. Black people love to cheer black people. Love to talk trash. There is none of that in gymnastics. You have to go to a gym severe during the competition for four hours and be quiet sitting down and being quiet for four hours is just not in our cultural dna makeup..

Give me a name. tell me your person. He was like no one. No one actually ever said it. But you know i said no. I don't know i said tell me. And he couldn't say anything i said. Why are you online spreading lies. So now i'm upset and so so before we get to this this upset me because you will never find anyone who says that gymnastics is gymnasts unmanly but for some reason. That's the first thing people want to go to. That's the narrative that started online it did not exist in real life. But but that's says. That's exactly what i was was going to say because i'm so glad that he will..

"Senior Championship an unprecedented Eleven Times Unreal April Twelfth Twenty Twelve Joanna goes to Italy and performs, and her world record was certified by Guinness. She is the oldest gymnast in the world. At what age was she when this took place eighty-six? Eighty six years old. Wow, it was also that year two thousand twelve, when she really rose to prominence, several youtube video clips showed her training at the age of eighty six, and the clips became instant viral hits. They generated four million views a piece. Sure she's incredible to watch and most of the time she'll wear her signature, dark, green, crushed Velvet Leotard, and she looks amazing, but like I said Joanna is not a one trick pony she likes to do. All the things in honor of the queen's ninetieth birthday Joanna. Dedicated her. Trip to the Queen Ninety I'm at the time she was ninety. She was ninety. I'm feeling a few months younger months older than the Queen. I'm really disappointed in myself because. I have a long way to go before I. Get to ninety. But is still get winded the trash to the end of the driveway. Juliana said that the Queen is someone that she always admired. You know they're the same age and She saw on like the intro to some Olympic event that the queen was like fake skydiving a Ha. Ha kind of thing. Uh, and so she thought. Wouldn't it be a great dedication to her to say like well? We're both ninety and I'm going to do this in your name. So anyway him an even greater. If she had taken queen, Elizabeth Skydive Tandem. Oh, that would have been so cute. In early twenty eighteen she participated in a gymnastics tour took it was like the course of three weeks where they went to see several cities, and she performed and Blue People's minds, and it was the whole idea was gymnastics and sport aren't just for young people. And it was all like look at this young person Oh, and then there's this really old person, which it's gotta be amazing to be the oldest gymnast in the world, but also to be constantly referred to as the oldest. It's gotta be like okay. No, that's fine, okay. Can I just be a good gymnast? But no, she's the oldest in late twenty eighteen. She did hurt her tendon in her bicep, and that prevented her from participating in the fifty eighth bloom festival, but she didn't miss the opportunity to participate in the various workshops that they were holding, and she was interviewed and said that she could do some things better than she could and she's. She's feeling that her. Her therapy was working and doing what it needed to be doing so that she could get back to training. She's currently not training, but when asked about the one hundredth John Turn Fest in Twenty, twenty, two in Freiburg. She got a twinkle in her eye, according to the reporter, and said that would be great if I would be fit again and could participate in my favorite competition for the one hundredth anniversary. She said my face is old, but my heart is young. Maybe the day I stopped doing gymnastics is the day I die. So how old would you be in two thousand twenty two if she were to compete ninety six incredible, so that's a goal apparently. and. She said that she never stops working toward her goals. That being fit helps her master all the parts of her life, so it's not just about you know like I gotta look good man. It's about the fact that she's. She's getting up there and where a lot of people at her age have a hard time maneuvering stairs. She, she wants to be able to do anything she wants to do. Like skydive or a hike or whatever and she. She's mind blowing. It would be interesting to know what her diet and workout regimen so before her bicep injury. She was working out for an hour a day. She would do gymnastics training but she said she also likes to do other physical activity as her hobbies, so she hikes, and she and her husband are both very active outside of gymnastics and she must eat really well. She says she loves a well rounded diet with lots of fruits and vegetables. She says that Greens are the most important thing are really need to start focusing on that more well. I mean I I agree I have mentioned that once or twice, and unlike maybe cucumbers, instead of pringles today and you're all like yeah I'm GonNa have these salt and vinegar wrangles. For Dinner I had. An Ip in a box of Pop, tarts. Really need to work on my diet. But you? You're doing better I. Mean there are times where I'll see you put lettuce on a sandwich and it's like. You're doing great, sweetie. Thanks, great, see. I, consider pringles vegetable because you would have to classify that as a vegetable. Some sort of potato like pace. Potato liked. Pace is what classifies it as? Potato right in it. Sure sure I don't think it actually does just called Chris or something like that. It's some sort of vague worded. That makes them. Legally not obligated to. Anyway. I, two cupcakes last night, and so you know I'm not. I'm not one to judge. Just to get an idea of this Chica and how amazing she s, which by the way if you Google, you're gonna find videos of her performing, it's incredible. She's so graceful and smooth, and she does things that I can't even figure out my brain. Like how do you? anyway What's her? What's her main event? What what is she known for? Well. She does all the things she does everything she does.

"The unexpected. As. The LID and wash asleep you inside. The box. ODDITIES! When did you start by addressing this whole Chernobyl versus Chernobyl raging issue? Was a threat on the free Speights. Wasn't it cute how jethro pronounced Chur Neil. Let me explain why I did that before. You think I'm just frigging, idiot, okay. A number of years ago, I was asked to record the audio for a report about the disaster at Chernobyl. which is how I pronounced it and they kept sending it back to me, saying no, no, you need to pronounce it. Churn Noble Chernobyl is just the way that Americans. Say it. It's burrito versus Burrito. Okay so I re cut it and I sat it in young everything was was fine and. Years went by and every time. I would hear somebody. Say Chernobyl in my mind I. would laugh you idiot. Come to find out I'm the idiot. ever since then I've called at Chernobyl, but it's actually kind of a hybrid of Churn Noble and Chernobyl. The Ukrainian pronunciation is. Something like Chernobyl bill or I don't know anyway so that's the story behind that apparently I've been really smug for a number of years for no reason at all. You know it happens plus I've been really distracted because I can't get the lyrics from Hamilton out of my head. Oh my Gosh! It's infection I woke up this morning. We we Mona Meizhou Paddle. Lafayette the Lancelot of the revolutionary set like that every morning. Yeah now every morning I wake up with a different song from the Hamilton Soundtrack in my head. What is it right now data? The. that. Yeah, it's been haunting us for days. Fuck you Hamilton for being so off. You Go I. My love what you got for me. I want to tell you about athlete Joanna. She was born in. In most and wait a minute. It was in your voice. I'm not having with this mispronouncing thing anymore. Just going to get other people to record audio for me. I'm just GONNA INSERT IT and we'll pretend like it's just me saying it is that our live show road manager amber it is, it is which by the way it's her birthday today, and she's a treasure, and it's almost like she's a gift to all of us on her birthday. Amazing Anyway. Hearing her voice every time. The that name comes up now that yes, the place. Where Joanna was born, though I only say at once, so that's it that's it okay. Good enough, probably a lot of other words. I should have had her record, but I didn't all right, so Joanna began practicing gymnastics when she was nine. She appeared in her first gymnastics competition in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four in nineteen, forty-five. She finished her. In one thousand nine hundred. You just mispronounced the word job. In nineteen forty-five, she finished her job training as gymnastics coach, and she moved to Watson fails where she started to train for handball, so after World War Two when then East Germany discouraged individual sports, they promoted team sports instead, so in fact, gymnastics was banned by the Allied Control Council. Side Note, this was not the first time. Gymnastics was banned in Germany Frederick Ludwig John was born in Seventeen, seventy, eight. He was called the father of gymnastics. He invented the parallel bars, the rings, the balance, being the horse and the Horizontal Bar, which became standard equipment for gymnastics, so he also supported a liberal freethinking German society, and in the political reactionary climate of eighteen nineteen, he became under suspicion for his outspoken views and strong influence on youth, so government arrested him, closed his gymnastics club and imprisoned him for almost a year, and because the politics and the sports were so intertwined, they actually banned gymnastics. That's insane. The ban was revoked in eighteen, forty two, but. Then again after a World War Two because the again, the British American and French believe that education could be used to promote democracy in Germany, and because the physical education and sporting was so much a part of that strong Nazi influence during the Third Reich. Again sports they felt had to be kind of rebuilt from the ground up, so between nineteen, forty, five and fifty in Germany. The whole system of sporting was rebuilt. Joanna actually became very successful handball, winning the eastern, German. Championship in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty four. Eastern German Handball Championship, it just. Twitter bio struck me as funny. In, nineteen fifty, she started to study at university, and afterwards she trained coaches and Co authored a gymnastics textbook in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, three, Joanna, married to fellow gymnast coach Gerhard Costs and they had three daughters now at that time she was pretty unable to commit herself to sport because of her responsibilities as a wife and a mother, however after her kids got grown, she still had this passion for physical activity and gymnastics was legal now so hey, why not return to the sport in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two when she was fifty seven. Shut up! That's amazing. I wonder what it was like. During the time that gymnastics was illegal like you'll be out on the street and somebody likes you. WanNa, buy a pummel horse. I, think that. Is a tough term to use. Because from my understanding, you're still allowed to like practice and learn, but there were numerous competitions, so she's fifty seven and she's re entering the gymnastics world. Right away. She started entering gymnastics competitions. She had committed her life to to fitness and being a well-balanced in her diet and exercise. She was always into hiking and things like that, so she was still physically fit. She was not the type of fifty seven year old woman. You would often find at like. RV resort in Florida, so she's entering these gymnastics competitions and she also worked with a gymnast who competed in the nineteen sixty four summer Olympics, so she had a good base for success. She worked in gymnastics. She and her husband were both coaches She had good connections shortly after her return to gymnastics, she went onto win the seven turn on sport fest dirt in Lipstick. LEAP LEAP ZIG whereas amber. When you need odd Dang it. She talked an interview about her proudest moment in gymnastics, it was in two thousand nine. She was eighty four years old and she was competing in this championship, and there was no one in her age group. Wait wait wait. She was talk, and she's eighty four, and she was competing, or she was eighty four, and she was talking about competing impeding at the age of eighty four holy Shit, and there was no one else in her age group, so they put her in the lower bracket with the seventy to seventy five year old age group and she still won by a point. That's incredible. By Two Thousand Twelve John had one at the German.

Changes were proposed at USA gymnastics. Why weren't they implemented what happened? Well you know this survivors have for several months now. Championed the mantra that USA gymnastics was concerned about two things money metals. And when you look at the historical record it's really hard to argue that point so in the in the mid nineties USA gymnastics did embark upon very well intentioned athlete wellness program. There was a woman named Nancy fees. As Marshall she was a former Olympian. She was a member of the nineteen seventy two Olympic team and she was named the Vice Chair of the Athlete Wellness Program in Nineteen Ninety four and there were a number of stories that made the public around that time. Numerous cases this where coaches notably Bella Karoly Body Sham gymnasts routinely case after case after case of gymnasts who who developed brutal eating disorders and so Nancy Marshall was tapped to try to change all of that. Okay one of the things. Nancy Marshall was most encouraged about was a mentorship program and the idea behind it was an existing national team. It would have been paired with a former national team number and that former national team member could serve as sort of the big sister who to the younger gymnast might confide in so this mentorship program. She really had high hopes that it would take hold and and help these. Young gymnasts have a sympathetic ear because in the intimidating culture of these gyms the last thing they wanted to do was to complain to their coaches right well what happened. USA GYMNASTICS HAD A couple of disappointing showings at worlds in the late. Ninety S bellcore early essentially given supreme authority authority. If you will. He was named the National Director in charge of the Women's program they then went to a semi centralized system. Where one time a month? If if you were on the national team you had to go to the croly ranch and it was around that time around. Two thousand that Nancy's Marshall was informed that they were slashing her budget aged for the athlete wellness program in half when they slashed her budget. She realized you know what I'm gonNA stick around and be the token Olympian to give you guys public relations cover. I'm out so she quit. And you know the mentor program went away and essentially the cruelest were given ultimate control over the direction of the of the program didn't USA gymnastics recently announced that they are finally trying to hire a new wellness position. They did yeah. And they hired a woman. Kim Kranz who has impressive credentials. She's twenty five years working in physical therapy. She specialized in Sports Nutrition and positive coaching. So look I applaud. USA Gymnastics for doing this. But I can tell you that there are a number of people who say what took you so damn long today Larry. Nassar is in prison as you mentioned. Steve Penny any has been charged but what about USA gymnastics John. What is the state of that organization? Well they have a new president Who recently came out with a you know a statement and talking about how much she hopes that they can settle the claims with Survivors that are outstanding. There are currently more than five hundred survivors of Larry Nassar who have outstanding civil claims against USA Gymnastics USA. Gymnastics has declared bankruptcy that bankruptcy case is grinding along and those civil cases are sort of at a standstill until the bankruptcy case is resolved but effectively you know on some of the organization's been rendered Kind of meaningless meaningless. You know Simone biles who maybe small in stature. But when she speaks boy does she carry a lot of weight You know it was around the time of that historic sentencing that you alluded to some time ago that Simone biles came out publicly and said look. I don't know why I should have to go back to the place where I was sexually assaulted. referencing the Croly ranch within I think twenty four to forty eight hours. USA Gymnastics six announced that it had severed its ties with croly ranch some breaking news tonight. The KAROLYI ranch in Texas is being closed effective immediately for the nation's elite female gymnasts last year USA gymnastics said. It would leave the early but the decision. Today shows increased urgency. The news is no relief for athletes. Like Simone biles have expressed concern about returning to a place where she says she was abused. Look the organization is struggling to stay afloat financially I think it struggling for relevancy but you know until those cases are resolved until the bankruptcy has resolved. Its future is very much an open question yearbook really all all of your work on this issue has detailed the ways in which Larry Nassar was enabled How people and institutions adults overlooked red flags didn't implement changes? That could have stopped this from happening. Do you think any of that has been fixed. Got I hope so. You know. There's the two schools of thought one is that Larry Nassar's gone you know in prison. He'll die in prison. The curly's Oregon The word is out that these abusive coach's just won't be tolerated anymore So we're good all good. But we're still seeing complaints about abuse of coaches physically physically and sexually abusive coaches the US Senate for safe sport by its own admission overwhelmed. They don't have enough investigators to investigate all complaints that are coming hanging on a timely basis. There are caused by Congressman to give the organization more money more investigators so is the system completely fixed. You know there are folks who say not so much. I think any time you allow for adults to be alone with kids. You opened the door for potentially for for for predators and look overwhelmingly. The people involved in the sport there are. There are a tremendous number of really good coaches. Who coached the right way? But for the bad actors the framework is in place for horrible things to happen. Do I think we'll ever see a story on the scale of Larry Nassar Man. I sure hope not but do I think we will continue to see stories of coaches abusing using kids when they have access to the Malone..

Alex jet born with this boundless font of, of energy. And so. And my husband was largely gone most of the time, either gone teaching or at conferences, or traveling somewhere in yet, very little to do with us at home. It was me and the kids, and so I was always exhausted. So. Couldn't dig very deep. Tired all the time, but I looked little kids, and they were wonderful little people. They were fascinating, so instead of following all their parental advice. And having diagnosed and putting him on Ritalin or whatever would slow him down. You know, so I could get some sleep. I tried all kinds of that we went on walks and we'd, we'd climb things together, whatever I could and we'd. I talked with them all the time, and I put them in both of them in ice them gymnastics. There was a there was a up performance gymnastics group in our town in Sacramento in if it was, you know, not school affiliated was just for performance. They performed Oliver. The region in very good. And so I, I approached. The coach. And he said, yes, sir. So I brought the kids there. I asked him if they want to try that. Yes. Sure, so gymnastics. This sounds like the perfect. Outlet for my son, who's always climbing on star. All he ever wanted to do since birth day. He was born was climb higher. Doesn't that fit for Alex? Yeah, yeah. That's ever wanted to do is go. Hire station. I were always content to like to, to walk to the park, where Alex was. No. He always found a wall to, to, to would you come to verse on or, or a building or tree, or from tree to treat whatever. So this is the perfect aller-. Okay gymnastics. We'll. It didn't work out too well, because Alex, there was there were all these things. They're they had bars. They had ropes hanging down. They had things to climb on, and they wouldn't let him use them. They he had to wait his turn. He had to use it. Only the way that the coach deemed safe. And in. All these things were there. Taunting him any. He couldn't do what his body was telling him to you to do as he knew he knew better what how to use all these things, and what he could do. What his body was capable of he? He knew better than the coach. He did. I didn't then. But he, he clearly knew in retrospect, he knew better than the coach what he was capable of and what he could do. All these tools these amazing looking things hanging over the walls. But he wasn't allowed. And it was a source of great frustration. And so I can't I he has to go back. Anyway, I don't wanna go anywhere. So I kept talking to them station joined it. Sister enjoyed it. But Alex was totally frustrated and I didn't understand why then, you know, I to me, this was heaven, if you like to be up higher and doing stuff moving your body. This is having, but it wasn't for him. And so I talked to the multi-mm` and eventually he was so adamant that now this is terrible. Any of course couldn't put it in adult terms. I, I wasn't getting all of his reasoning, but I could see it was making him miserable. So I just let them stop. You have to know when to pull back, you have to know which battles to fight..

"And so that's going to halt the decertification process while they're going through chapter eleven it will also allow them potentially to because they're being sued by all of Larry Nassar's survivors. And so the chapter eleven process will allow them to pay settlements to the survivors. So USA gymnastics is in complete. It's rotting carcass, it's just complete and total shambles. While at the same time the actual gymnasts who compete on the international level for the United States. Literally the best that any gymnasts have ever been. I just wonder when the sort of Olympic level performance is become synonymous with this awful abuse. It's hard not to look at a video like the one of. Leno Hashi and say like, why wouldn't this be Olympic level? I don't know what can be done to fix USA gymnastics. I'll tell you this though, if what it needs to be fixed to the point where it's athletes are no longer over burnin overworked would potentially signal the end of the dominance of the US gymnastics program in the world. Really see you're basically saying the abuses necessary, not the sexual abuse. I'm not a monster. But I do think that the Soviet style centralized training and over training the institution of that camp system directly correlates with the rise and dominance of the US program. Whoa. I mean, I'm not saying that I support USA gymnastics or the semi centralized training system. My personal view is that people's humanity is more important than gold, medals, even more. So I would like to see the entire sport from the international level down value humanity more than gold medals. I'm not sure how that is going to be accomplished. Or if the people who are important want that to be accomplished. But that's not to say that. I don't want it to be accomplished. You just don't see the way out. I don't currently see the way. I mean, I think one of the reasons that Caitlyn Hashi is routine is so incredibly magnetic is because it's not just her joy. Like, you can see that her joy is a triumph over something. You really can you really can you can see that? She's like seeing the dark side, and she's kind of walking towards the light. Exactly. And so we also have to think like what do we get out of that how important to us as viewers casual or expert is it that she has been through the darkness before she gets to the white like what how complicit even is the casual viewer who thinks that this is the greatest thing that they've ever seen. Because what? In her triumph has appealed. Rebecca, thank you so much for making the time and standing close to your router. I really appreciate it. All right. I gotta go back to psalm.

It's really easy. What Rebecca saying here is that they're really two kinds of gymnastics in this country, the elite kind the kind that goes to the Olympics in wins metals, and this kind college gymnastics, but I'm gonna call it the fun kind. Everybody in gymnastics can do the splits. Everybody can do this puts splits. You learn the splits when you're five years and the floor on gymnastics Matt actually has like sixteen inches of math and springs. And so it's like almost like a trampoline. But then there are things that people really liked about this routine that are completely common to the entire NCWA which is the teammates during the choreography in the background. And everybody freaking out at the end when they did a good job and the smiling. And the fact that everybody looks like they have every new meal all those things are NC double a standard. Okay. Can we talk about? How weird it is though that like you're like smiling is Nancy AA. And like looking like they've eaten is unique to NC double A. That's a little bit of an exaggeration. Elite gymnasts has changed quite a bit. They do eat. Now, they look like they eat. But they it's true that they don't smile that much. Caitland? Oh, how she used to live in that world the one where you don't eat. And you don't smile.

They were like, I think just you. Is soussan air. Right. Dan. Rebecca saw this video way before I did she used to compete as gymnast. Now, she writes about competitive gymnastics for slave.

She's doing all the regular floor routine stuff running and flipping, but she's also dancing accompanied by a pop in Aren be soundtrack Tina Turner, Michael Jackson. The thing that really gets me about this routine. The reason of watched it over and over again is Caitlyn's face sticks her tongue out a little bit. No one ever does that have an incredible time. I wanted to watch this video with Rebecca because she sees this video pretty differently than I do. And I think she sees it pretty differently than the hundreds of thousands of people who liked and shared it online to like when he watched Caitlyn's vary last tumbling. Flip flip flip split jump.

It's it's not like, you're fully that way. But I think it's interesting because I think that's very relatable to a lot of people that they watch this. And they their natural inclination is to oh, I was reacting to this. I'd be making sarcastic jokes about this things. I either don't care about it. Or I think it's stupid. So that is I think also an opinion in itself is that response to things of being sarcastic making jokes is a reaction in the same way as liking something you're not liking, something definitely I think it's more just like trying to create more of a three dimensional image of myself, even in my own mind because I don't want to just be like call and response. This is how I will say something that's all react. It's like you can have multiple layers near real person with real thoughts. Even if the thoughts are whimsical.

So when that interest start, and how you still kind of do it for fun. Don't you a little bit? I definitely don't compete or anything. But like, that's. How get my exercise occasionally, I'll go to trampoline gym or something. There's some great footage of you through entrance lean places. Just doing crazy things. Oh, it's so much fun. I love trampolines. That's like my happy. That's where I go to like, calm my mind where the enough even if I'm like upside down fifteen feet in the air on this is peaceful. So what led you to gymnastics? So I've always been very flippy and acrobatic weird way describe it. But in I think kindergarten or first grade I was in PE, and I was just doing handstands across the grass and my teacher pulled me over to come here. And I was like I'm in trouble for being upside down, and she handed me a piece of paper. And she was like that to your parents. And I was like I'm in trouble. They're gonna have to send something, and I took it home, and my parents are at at and it was just like put this child from asks classes now. Oh, wow. So there's this natural ability. Yeah. It was just I was just doing it for fun and a teacher called me out on it. And it was like you need to be doing something with this. Did you enjoy the competitive gymnastics or was it a bit intense? I love the feeling of gymnastics I love being like flip through the air and do. All of this and be like kind of anti gravity. It's such a thrill and kind of like an adrenaline seeking thing for me, but the competitive nature I had a like a Russian Olympic coach who went from training. Olympian select training ten-year-old me. And I was like I don't want to be doing this. So is more just like the nature of the sport kind of turned me off as opposed to like the actual like physical acts of it. So I still love doing gymnastics, I just don't necessarily think would be a part of the culture as much, and that's just my experience. Obviously have you ever broken bone? I broke a finger water skiing, and I broke I sprained my ankle coming into work a few months ago that was in a law. I remember that. But finger is the only one I've broken. So all that gymnastics. You never actually broke it. No. I was so durable is weird. So you had horrible accidents. But you never know I would fall like fifteen feet straight onto my head. And I'd get up and be like lunch. So no broken bones without surgery, I have broken my eardrums and had bad ear-drum things..

"That's right they're they're students i soon apple it's okay so i want to understand the i feel like i'm going this question is on slippery ground so yeah why leotards why the the the feminists feminist the sexualizing of young female athletes in a way that men don't have that same thing in many sports even gymnastics like what what is that about it happens in women's volleyball it happens in lots of sports and certainly there's there's a very slippery taboo dark side to gymnastics ballet you know what is it pretty girls in little boxes right the classic book why why are they leotards and why do they have to look the way that they look and i i don't want to disrespect anything because when i watch a gymnast it's beautiful in it's amazing and it's really difficult and they make it look easy in it's outrageous and part of that is the clean lines and it's about that it's about the clean lines and i have i have the same issue with it that you do these aren't you know little girls they're young women and our sport there's a lot of flexibility involved and you know would it be better for them to be in a short tight as short shorts you know an leotard top yes however the lines are not as clean and chops the lego chops alike off just like you don't put c ballet dancers on stage with chop in their legs off with tights also even if he went to a nice lake unitards looking thing they would slip because they.

"Choreographer and so when i hire and when i was offered the head coaching job i went to my boss and i my athletic director and i just said i cannot this cannot be all about winning because i didn't grow up with that that's not in my dna so the reason why i love to coach is because i feel that outside of the military there is not a greater venue to learn life lessons than athletics and gymnastics is really really really hard sport and so if i can help our student athletes be healthy mentally emotionally and physically they're gymnastics will be great because i can recruit great talent so i recruit the person before the athlete when you talk about your philosophy is distinct or like have you mapped input into a framework or is it like a potpourri of ideas the how you are at your philosophy i would say that it is a it's a strong base of foundation of philosophy which is i mean what we were talking about when we first started every single recruit i ever recruit it's like there was one thing i want you to learn minute ucla and life is about choice and the choices you make are going to dictate the life that you lead and when you get that that is when your life is going to start coming alive and i can't tell you how many of my freshman over the course of the how many years i've said this they got now misao that's not true my brain just thinks what it wants to i can't help being mean gort girl you know it's just my mind just went there and it's it takes them till they're a lot of them are takes them till about halfway through their sophomore year junior year before they the lightbulb goes on and they realize no no no they can't choose what to think and every thoughts going to have an emotion wisconsin have an action to it and every action is going to have numerous repercussions that you can't even begin to foretell and so once they get that the scary part is as you well know you no longer get to be a victim.
