"Okay. Dennis crowley welcome to the voice. Podcast thanks for the beer. Yeah it's really good to see you again so we were just talking before we got on the bike in the video here that we met very briefly. I think we talked for about ten minutes after voice. Camp by beta works. Which i believe was june of twenty seventeen hundred times ago. Who has a lot of things happened since then and that was fun. I mean yeah. Companies like jovan came out of that. So there's a lot of listeners to my podcast very familiar with jovo and egg voice. I think was there as They're doing really well in the in the custom assistant space rag culture so that was a really Really good event. Very early on is reputed. We're starting to build custom assistance. And you're on stage. I don't remember exactly what your Your comments and prognostications were. But i'm sure they came true. I think we were talking about Voice skills at the time. I think i let alexa was opened to you. Know building your own voice skills. And i think we were. We force for likes learning with like. Should we make something there or not. Yeah and you'd never did correct. We did we made something for actually made something for google. Whatever google on google home google. Now whatever it's called sugarless assistant yet but we we. We launched them but we never really promoted it. I don't think. I even know it still works to be honest. We saw very williams at with that stuff as it's tough because you really have to say a mouthful just to get the thing to work like. Hey google assistant foursquare this. That's just not what normal people do. You know. That's really interesting So actually why don't we. I think most of the people who are listening are probably familiar with foursquare. But why don't we talk a little bit about your journey with foursquare what that does how that lets you up to the assistant. We'll talk about that. And then obviously. We want to spend a lot of time on mars. Because i think that's a really interesting solution. But for the people who aren't up to speed on the foursquare journey you know what you're what you're quick summary about how you got to where you are because you know a tremendously important company in many ways At least from my perspective And you know really at the at the onset of the bubble revolution in particular. And now we're in voice and you're doing something else in the space so i think it's really interesting. How you're jumping these technology curves. Yeah i mean we've been doing foursquare for for twelve years now and so forth. What has been a lot of different things in those twelve years kind of typical startup journey of trying a little bit of everything until you really figure it out but started as a consumer app Back in two thousand nine audience maybe fifty sixty million users which still wasn't enough In terms of you know running a at canal a product radio ads in the product. And so that's really when we started to understand that the destiny of the company was becoming more of an enterprise providing tools and technology to develop partners providing data a building advertising marketing solutions in robust analytics around types of people have been to what types of places You know really a lot of the things that he saw the consumer equitable to spin those into very valuable Tools and technologies for for others to use and company has has been doing really well since we've really figured out how that business works really changed the company to better serve those opportunities. Yes it was really a social connectivity app. I would say in the beginning. And it's moved into that data location business. Yeah you're you're you're working with enterprises. I will say that i still use the foursquare out. Yes why there's tons of people still use the apps and i think that consumer dna still runs very strongly. The company which i think gives us A unique perspective. When we're building had of these enterprise tools like normally think of enterprise stuff is like oh it's just software for companies but like we approach it as As as you would if you were building it for for end users and i think that allows us to be more thoughtful like more clever with it more playful with it sometimes And you know he was still a team here that works on the consumer apps. Like my my job now is run the the rnd team here which just makes weird stuff with the tools and technology in the most of that we are stuff is meant to be used by end users. Just people that are walking around was was phones or airpods. Whatever

What is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier all about?
"You're listening to the how in the world podcast we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions about ten minutes. Nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal. People like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research. So you don't have to veterans day. Twenty twenty was last week and we were watching the ceremony on tv where. The president laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. And i had so many so boom. That's how ideas for episodes are born in fact we've had a bunch of ideas recently. I'm not sure what that means. Maybe we've been watching too much. Tv or something. Well have been a lot of events and things going on and questions. Raise like veterans day and christmas. Coming in the spacex mission to the international space station and like our seventh grader pete. Yeah he's just a few good questions lately. And i've got all them in my notes so we'll get to them but before we get to today's episode. I have to mention my favorite veteran dad. Although he passed away ten years ago. I think of every day. He was my hero the very best dad ever in the world. No offence sweetie men take. He was a great guy he was. He had a really interesting time. While in the army. Interesting about the only word. I could come up with their first as a model for army promotional posters literally a poster boy then as a member of general macarthur's honor guard where he hung out with the general and his wife watching movies every friday night. That was a very cush job. But then crap got real when he became a forward observer in the korean war. That's the guy who's part of a team of three who go ahead of the rest of the group in radio back until then where the enemy lines are and stuff. It's a very dangerous job. Maybe the most dangerous in the military at that time yes indeed but he came home then and he met my mom and they had me. Yea so thanks for indulging me a moment to recognize him. Okay let's get to it. I the basics. The tomb of the unknown soldier is in arlington national cemetery and strangely enough. I've never been there. I know the air and space museum. So well i could give tours. But we never went to arlington national. I'm i'm ashamed really. You're mad my school for never taking us there. I don't know but we we've got to do this on our own. We definitely will. The tomb actually contains and unknown soldier from world war. One who was buried ride underneath a memorial which is made of marble like everything in dc tomorrow and the city. It has six wreaths carved into the sides three on the opposite two sides that represent the six major campaigns of world war one on the third side. There are three. Greek figures carved these figures represent peace victory in valor and on the fourth side contains the inscription here rests in honored glory in american soldier known but to god. That's just beautiful. The memorial also referred to as tomb of the unknowns actually has no official name president. Warren g harding officiated the ceremony. That laid this first soldier to rest on veterans day november eleventh nineteen twenty one the tomb of the unknowns generally refers to four tombs world war one world war two korea and vietnam. Three other soldiers were interred in tombs. Right beside the memorial. Those unknown soldiers represent world war two korea and vietnam although the soldier representing the vietnam war was removed once. Dna analysis identified him and he was returned to his family in nineteen ninety eight. He'd only been there like four years or something. The vietnam tomb now intentionally remains empty and is a monument. Honoring all of america's missing servicemen and. Women that's awesome. Yeah one of the questions. I've always had about the tomb of the unknowns. Is how they got the soldier so there's not just one unknown soldier in a war right. I mean. aren't there many. They're just one. And how did they choose this one who would be buried there and where are the rest so tell us about that. Honey yes. That's a great question that i've had to which means probably a lot of you have wondered about it as well for the first memorial. The the world war one memorial they uninsured four soldiers that had been buried in france. They put each in an identical casket and then a decorated wounded. Combat soldier made the choice from these four identical caskets at a city hall in france. He chose the third from the left. And signified is choice by laying white roses on top of that casket. That's the soldier who is in the tomb in dc. The other three were reinterred in france. That's the process that's been used to select the unknown for each tomb and yes there are plenty of unknowns. Buried all over the world.
Living Sober FAQs
"We're going to do a little compilation. A little collection of frequently asked questions so get questions. obviously all my social media platforms people. Message me. ask questions questions in the facebook group email. Everybody's got a lot of questions about sobriety and getting sober quitting drinking all of those things. One of my favorite things to do is answer questions in live videos so i'll go live usually facebook and youtube. I'll go live in. Just do maybe a five or ten minute video answering whatever questions have come in. Or what's popular at that time. So what i did. Is i took a few of those videos. Only a few not nothing crazy. I took a few of those videos. And i took the audio from them. And we're gonna do a compilation episode of frequently asked questions and these are three questions. Literally that i get over and over again. I'm forever most popular things that come up all the time in recovery and we're going to start with a big struggle in the twelve step world sponsorship. Most people get a really weird feeling about sponsorship self included. I was the same way. When i got sober and i started going a. It didn't make sense to me. You know by nature the majority of ice with addiction or very rebellious obstinate. And we don't like authority. Usually in any form and i think there's this sense of like sponsors. Are your boss right. They're gonna tell you what to do and like a good super immature alcoholic. Like i was when i quit drinking. Super emotionally immature. That was my thought process around sponsorship. In i was like i don't need somebody telling me what to do. I don't need somebody to call. And ask what i need to buy at the store how i need to act in this situation. You know i was just such a. I was such an immature self-centered little brat right. I didn't understand at all. The dynamic of sponsorship in what is really meant to do and that this is a person being of service to me for free giving me their time and energy and knowledge that i just didn't even have the capacity to understand it from that point of view because of course i was completely selfish and self absorbed and only thinking about how it would affect me. How's this gonna work for me. How do i feel about it. I'm so glad. I have grown out of that really really grateful that my sponsor taught me how to have a more mature grown-up humanistic approach to life. Right in that service a sponsor is not your boss. A sponsor is just someone who has walked this walk before you has gotten farther than you and they're going to help you figure it out to get farther also so here is the audio from facebook live. I did about sponsorship in honor of full transparency. Like i was super weird about sponsorship when i got sober it was not a concept that i was like down for immediately right out the gate It was a struggle for me. So i get where you're coming from also in my sober living houses. I see this a lot too. I feel like we have a tendency to kind of overthinking and remember. You're not marrying this person right. This is no different than if you hire a coach or something like you can fire us as you are sponsor and as your sponsor. Arkansas are you too. So don't feel like you're getting into this major commitment and there's no way out of eight and it's so serious and like this person is going to be your boss or something like that's not what it's about at all. The other thing. I want to talk about is remember that we are just people as sponsors like literally. We are just people just like you. We have our own issues. Every single sponsor kind of has their own way of doing things. You know many years ago when i really sponsored a lot of people i did ask them to call me every day and i had good reason for that because my time is fairly limited right in. If i'm going to work with somebody. I will give you of energy and time that i have that i need to know that you're really in it in the you're willing and that you're in a place that you're ready to work for your sobriety because it's not always easy and it doesn't always feel good so if you can't do something as simple as calling

"Tips that you had for students right now as they prepare to wrap up this semester. Yes so that's awesome question and one. That's very very very important. I think first and foremost take a deep breath rate. Just take a deep breath. Because you've mentioned so much is going on so much going on. So i know as a student many of our students. They're tired they're you know they're physically tired. They're mentally tired. They're stressed they're worried. So much is going on so just take a deep breath because not only are you tired. We're tired as well right back. What are you tired around. The i mean we just exhausted so across the board in one of the things. I like to tell my students is. We're in this thing together or we are in this thing together and i think been a huge theme for the pandemic. We are truly all in this thing together so just take a breath reach out when you need to reach out right know that there are different services. I know you've had different sessions about the counts counseling services and all these different services. Your professors your instructors. We're here as well. We want you to be successful.

Let's focus so that we can finish strong like so. What do i mean by that. You still have material. You still have assignments prior to finals right that you need to do. So you know this is we are at that final phase. I'm a former runner. So it's like head down perfect form. You got exaggerate that form. Got the drive. You know you've really got to drive to get to that finish line. You're you're exhausted. So you gotta work on that form and you just gotta have your head down and you just gotta drive. Go just go for all out right. This is no time to give up and this is the time that we really have to be intentional. Truly focus on what needs to happen to finish strong. So what does that mean. Make sure that. I'm studying properly so that this current material are things that you don't have to touch on right so you know if you especially when you have that all inclusive binal right. Maybe if if you make sure that you knock out this stuff can go back to review the older material if that makes sense all right. So how can we make sure that we're studying properly and of the things. I was mentioning before. Was this thing called the study cycle. So see sandra mcguire study cycle. And this thing would it really talks about tells me to do. Is one preview. The material before gwen to class right so of course. That's nothing new. Your teachers tell you to do that unless i don't mean go. Sit down for a half hour. Forty five to look you know the topic. It really is a quick easy. Thirty preview flip through should take you five to ten minutes right seeing. Just familiarizing yourself. What's gonna be covered right. You can see big pictures you can see terms you know. Okay all right you know you just kind of glancing opening your brain in an in getting yourself ready impressed for the learning. That's going to occur so literally. This is something five ten minutes. No more than fifteen minutes of a quick preview not really studying you're just glancing you're previewing. You're familiar rising yourself getting ready. Then of course we're going to class right we know class attendants important so make sure these last few weeks that you are intentional. You're there you're there on time. You're there you're showing up. You're asking your questions your incentive you you already previewed so you know what's going to happen now when you hear about it maybe okay. You have some questions. Make sure you're asking those questions while you're in class now wants clashes over your task. Now is to review right. What happened right. Go back over those notes. Maybe you need to rewrite them. Right or whatever be the case but now i have to go back over that stuff and maybe formulate questions that you thought were cleared but may not be clear right and so this really should take ten fifteen minutes right so. I'm not telling you to really dive in and take forever to do this. It's just go back over your notes developed questions of something that might not have been clear right as we read something. I thought it was clear when she said that. But wait a minute. There's a small question about that. So you develop the questions right those off to the side and develop those kinds of questions. Then i'm going to set aside a time period. Maybe thirty minutes right. I'm going to set aside an intense study session. Thirty minutes thirty minutes guys. That's all i'm asking thirty minutes. We all got thirty minutes. He wasted thirty minutes. Doing who knows what we got thirty minutes. Just literally set aside schedule out that time and we're going to sit there and we are in but before you do that. I need you to task what you want to accomplish in that thirty minutes right. You've gone through the material you know what the material is so say. I want to cover this this this this topic right right that out be intentional. We're not just floating through. Okay what's this. What's this what's this. You know the material that's happened. You know so list out the topics that you want to cover or what you want to get accomplished in those thirty minutes. Sit down and do it right. Go back over that. Go over
How does the Electoral College work?
"This week's episode answers the question. How in the world does the electoral college pick our president. You're listening to the how in the world podcast we're we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions in just about ten minutes nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal people who like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research so you don't have to well. Today is thursday november fifth twenty twenty. And it's been a quiet couple of days around here in the. Us assure was there was something on tv to incessantly. Watch and keep checking my phone about What could that possibly be wrong. Oh how about the twenty twenty elections. It's been a wild couple of days folks in it. Looks like it could be wild for a bit longer. So let's all practice are deep breathing and relaxation methods together. Bring your popcorn as the time that we're recording this. I believe the elections come down to maybe four states that haven't yet counted all of their votes but once they're done it's still not over no not even close because once all the votes are counted will know what the results of the popular vote are. But we won't officially know yet. Who won this election. And that's because not only will there be a ton of lawsuits than we unto way through but also because we don't elect our president based on the popular. Vote like you would in the classroom election elementary school. We use the electoral college. And i've always been a little foggy about the electoral college. So i'm glad recovering this today because it forced me to dig deeper really kind of learn about it or you could have just asked your wife who by the way is a political scientist by education. You know yeah. I've been told that. Before so i get a little invested in presidential elections and the preceding debates and political discussion. So what it's fascinating and also frustrating and maddening and kinda stupid also but so fascinating the strategy. He's not even close anyway. Let's talk about the electoral college. Yup that's why we're here. So let's do it and by the way we're going to refrain from any partisan right discussion. This is just about the electoral college. You won't know who we voted for. So for starters you know how annoying all of those census ads and like postcard mailers and mail and information and more ads and everything was reminding us. How important is that we fill out our census form so that everyone is counted yet. And i remember seeing a ton about the census recently. But i believe you filled out the form. Since you're our families designated form filler outer am. I joined it because again i am a political scientist so data and surveys and stuff like that matters anyway. The census is used to determine a lot of things most notably funding to your state for certain services. So if you have a disproportionate number of school aged kids for example it tells the. Us government that you'll need a disproportionate amount of funding for schools. I mean that's really dumbing. It down but funding is a biggie. And doesn't also tell you how many representatives you'll get in the. Us house it does so every state gets two senators so there are a total of one hundred senators in the us senate but representatives are totally different because their allocated based on the census count. Yes they are. There's always four hundred and thirty five of them. No more no less. But how they're allocated can change. So if everyone emptied out of california which currently has fifty three districts and therefore fifty-three representatives and moved to wyoming which currently has just one representative. Those numbers would turn on their head. And by the way. Alaska delaware montana and north and south dakota and also vermont have just one representative yes and there are also some non voting delegates in the hell. They can do everything. The voting members can do except vote. Hence the name right. They can introduce bills and participate in committees Currently there is a delegate representing washington. Dc as well as one each for puerto rico. American samoa guam the northern mariana islands. And the us virgin islands. They're also talking about adding a delegate from the cherokee nation and from the choctaw nation which is super cool. Yeah it really is. And the senate and house together are called congress and there are a total of five hundred thirty five members of congress. So that's that hundred senators and the four hundred and thirty five representatives. Each state has the same number of electoral college votes. That they have congressmen or women which means each state has a minimum of three electoral college members. Two senators one representative three so for the the smaller less populated states. They're still going to have three electoral college members.
Xbox Series X review: A sports car with no gas
"Jump into this power at what cost. What are we getting the xbox series x. So i got my hands on this a while ago. This is a nice machine. it's nice it's i. use the word. Sleek people got mad at me on twitter. I don't really give a shit people. Get mad about everything but you instead could say simplistic. I like the design. This design works both vertically and horizontally. Once i put it in the actual receptacle for the stand and everything. I didn't mind it being horizontal. Vertical works as well. It depends on the system. Set up in place i will say it as one solid unit. That is for sure wherever you put it. You're not going to have to worry. It's also a fingerprint magnet. This thing will attract fingerprints from people not even at your house. There's a crime scene. The fingerprints will be on the xbox series x in fact. I'm not putting it out of my mind that perhaps microsoft's working with police on this because it is absolutely bat shit insane. How that thing can attract fingerprints from like fifty feet away. I burn my fingerprints off. They'd still know who who had it. So you get the system. Young package it you get your hd mike you plug everything and it's a fairly simple set up a rectangular box. What more is there to say. it's black. it's got a button on the front rejecting your disks and it's got a button on the front for sinking your controller with the bluetooth receiver. All of that kind of stuff. The typical stuff that you expect to see on a normal xbox system because this is a system like the playstation both are built a good deal on their brethren and were skin. See that win. I talk about things like backwards compatibility but also designed for the xbox in particular now in the back of xbox you have to. Usb's on the front. You have one usb. None of them are the us usb. C form factor. They're all just normal. Usb form factor you can plug in any external normal drive that you would have for usb and it'll see that also and the back you just got your hdmi you got your storage port for an extra envy emmy that you can buy and plug in and you have your power plug. That's it getting it. All set up is the next step. We're going to talk about so you plug this thing. In what happens. You have about a five to ten minute process where you take your old account and you move here. This is identical to what we saw with the xbox exits whenever you update and it's really not that difficult. Microsoft is made sure to make that onboard process. Pretty fricken easy you just sorta pop in and there's no issues there. It takes just a couple moments to get everything solidified setup and boom. You're in now. once you are in. You will adjust a couple settings for example like your privacy and so forth and connect to the net. That kind of thing. The wireless adapter in this i will say is probably better than the one in the x. The one in the original x there were some complaints about that including myself. I had some issues with it was just really susceptible to network interference. It was susceptible to other systems anywhere near it. And i have noticed with the series x none of those issues occur. That is a total boone. I'm not saying you wanna do this. Wireless and play wirelessly. You really can't beat a wired connection but that is a huge plus to see something like that on a system so onboarding. Fifteen minutes tops. You're in even if you don't have an account you just give it an e mail system and boom you're there now let's talk about the o. S because the os is important but we should all remember that. This is built on the backs of their brothers. Both houses for the new systems and assuming i switch three or whatever they're going to call it switch to switch to light. They'll all have some kind of basic backbone. That's the same and we see that with the xbox series x it's just the same exact a west because they don't really want it to be any different because they won't be people to be able to play on the series s the series x the xbox x. or the xbox one i think that makes sense including the x. cloud i think so you've got all these different systems are all basically set up the same way. They've gone away from the more horizontal kind of setup that we saw win. This system really came out and it's gone to more of a vertical setup as well as a nested kind of vertical menu. It works fine. Some people like it. Some people don't. I don't mind here. Removing pins and adding pins four games as quite easy so you go in. You can pick a game you say. Add to the home it pops up and now it also fills that with twitch channel streaming it and that kind of stuff some really good setup and very easy to overall just navigate when it comes down to it now when i say easy. I don't mean you're gonna find everything really quickly. I just mean that nothing is more than one or two or three steps away which i'm okay with even if it's a little bit cumbersome at first that's actually pretty nice i do get that some people just don't like that tile system and i absolutely agree i can see it not being the best but it works now here also. There's some customization that you can do for your background your screen. You can throw that up can take a screen shot of a game. Boom that can be your background all stuff that we've seen before this is also place where you can look at your storage. You can look at your sharing. What type of pictures you've taken. What type of videos but will get to that in a bit when i talk about the controller itself as an os. I went in. And i tested some stuff out now. First thing i did was. I went in and i wanted to see. How easy was it to move games back and forth with all basically identical system that we got with the original xbox it's lickety-split fast and of course even faster here because of the internal envy emmy which i'm gonna talk about a second. It's mind blowing. How fast this thing transfers and it can transfer games back and forth really really quickly so using your external usb even if it's a slower. Ssd if it's an actual normal hard-drive it's going to be basically at its top speed for transferring. Which isn't going to be bad anyway in writing out to. It's not really the issue anyway. Most of the time the more important thing is going to be taken a game off of it as let's say storage and move on to the actual envy me. Additionally this thing. I was playing different games. I was using quick resume. Which will discuss here in a moment. The os special features and i was using various different parts of the xbox series x the entire time. It didn't get warm at all. I know somebody said that. They burn their hand on it or something like that. But i have no absolute clue what's going on. There was no heat additions and it is not audible to not audible with anything else or above anything else. There's no jet kind of you know air coming out of this that we expect in some electronics. It's very nice. Super quiet may not necessarily have the best aesthetic for somebody who wants something completely modern in their home but to me. It's the way it should be now when you jump into the os and you start messing around. You'll notice a couple of things. For example you have the ability to support fourteen. Forty p ten. Eighty p and four k. That sort of a big deal because some people are going to be using this on a monitor and some people be using this on monitors or tv's which is a little bit less rare that support Some kind of free freesync. Which is your ability to have the sync up your display and your console which i'll talk about the second We found that competitor systems. Don't seem to actually use fourteen forty piece of fourteen. Forty p is pretty good. We've already seen one game. Jaka that supports fourteen forty p moat and supports it. Well probably the best out of all the different modes so that is something to just be aware of. I think fourteen forty p for a lot of gamers is sort of a sweet spot. So what you have is an os. That's fairly compact is not surprising. Isn't a big step up but does everything pretty much faster but we are gonna talk about some special features. That has the first is quick resume. Now this is sort of being big news. The big news. Everybody's been like attention. Alert at eleven pm. Forget the elections. Let's talk about quick resume. I told you guys. I wasn't incredibly excited about quick resume. I just wasn't. I didn't know exactly what i was going to get out of it. And i've had a lotta time with this and i can say that there are some instances where quick resumed surprise. Me for instance if you have a couple people in your family and your playing different games. That's great but that's actually not as important to me as just a person who may have two or three games. They play during a week. Not at the same day. So i don't mean somebody. Playing may be a single player game and then go into a multiplayer waiting for that to load up because there might be some issues there in fact with quick resume for example. He wanted to wait in the lobby to me. This is more important when it comes to just having a bulk of games that you may have loaded up in the last week or so about five to six current or next gen games and then a more when it comes to prior games. It's going to depend on the size of the game and you cannot from what i can see clear that quick resume and take it on board as more storage. Quick resume is an inborn function. I don't think you can turn it off. I could not find an option but what quick resumed does and this is fantastic as it takes a dump and of the game status and it dumps it onto the envy me. What does this do. Well this allows you to basically not necessarily kwiksave save. You can use it for that. But i'll talk about that in a second. It basically allows for you to save the state of the game at any point and jump to another game. It's also stunningly quick. Even really on games that. I wouldn't expect that that would be a big deal. I noticed that with quick resume. It was actually very nice. So if you for instance. Were playing a little bit of batman a little bit of witcher three which are games of tests on before you can jump into those and i will say four is a in particular is known for some agree just loading times so looking at the os you have free sink as well freesync basically syncs up your monitor and it syncs up your video card inside of your console and it makes it so that there's no tearing on your screen a lot of teams. Don't support g sink or free sink. This is a free sink machine and it will support that if developers support in their game so be aware that some games on the xbox ex did support it and the series x were hoping is that moves forward it continues to free sink. That's awesome that they do that. Not really helps especially in a console where you might be a little challenged for some frames especially as you get on longer in the tooth with these kind of systems and you are looking at two. You're looking at the xbox series s which this is not a review of but the xbox series s a different form factor because is cut in half due to the jeep. Houben half the size does the same thing and also has free support which is pretty cool when you think about it now. The next thing up is auto. Hdr hdr upscaling. Basically what this does is it can take a game and it can make it. Hdr or as close as they can get to color map it to hdr taking into you know various different equations than knits. The power that is actually being shown on the screen and your colors. Luminosity everything it works. Okay there's one or two games where sorta finicky but overall it's still actually works better than most. Hdr games anyway. How many times of the person who knows. Hdr sets a game up. Knows it's got hdr and still has issues with it. It really doesn't add any additional issues. It's just when it works. It works and when it doesn't you're like wagon can go back to a normal. Sdr game fantastic. I wanna see more of those kinds of systems and it was something that was very surprising. I think a lot of people did not expect to see this kind of situation pop up but what it does is it allows for those older games to have that high pop look and color that we get from. Hdr and we get from newer titles. Where didn't even exist back then. We'll see some improvements when it comes to the way they map that as they move forward so looking at those kinds of things i jumped into games and jumped into games both current and prior. Now when you look at the backwards compatibility slash enhanced slash four series. Let's talk about those just for a second. Basically what you have is backwards compatible games that are just guaranteed to run on your series x. They will run in the same form or fashion. Maybe was something. Upscaled via whatever's going on in the hardware on the series x. Then you have your enhanced games. These are games that microsoft is looked at and said to the developers themselves. Let's improve some things. Let's look at the engine. Can we get some extra frames. And they're sort of. I would say a grey area between those ones where there's a great deal of work to make it sort of be better. And we have that with some enhanced versions of first party titles from microsoft where some enhanced versions just have one or two things like maybe some increase textures may be draw distance. Something like that and then you have others where it's frame rate draw distance textures. That's going to be a little bit iffy on which game gets what support. The fact is most of them are free. So hey what do you say. Put it in see if it works. I have yet to find a backwards compatible game that was backwards compatible on the xbox that is not on this that means games work as well. I have yet to find any of my titles not work. It wasn't a while ago but there was a patch to fix the one or two games. That i actually had an issue with and they work stellar your main version though on your series x is of course games made for it and games made ported for it so yuccas one of them you can watch my review that can be a little confusing however one of the great things about the xbox series x and s and now your normal xbox will have it as a filter us going to your games and you hit a button and you'll look the filter and change it to enhanced for series s or series x hit one button boom the games that show up that are enhanced directly for our. They're very cool. That's the smart delivery kind of thing that microsoft has been pushing. And i got to admit when i jumped in here at first i was like man won't be no thing i know what games i'm talking about. And that got in there like the so many games and then there's game pass games which which versions do. What the cool thing about smart delivery. It knows the platform you are delivering on. So whether you're on windows and you're looking at your listing of the different consuls. You have if you've ever got a game on the windows store by the way don't because terrible or if you're in your system itself it knows what it's getting. It knows which system needs what and it gives you that. Now the only difference that might be as where the series x is going to play a backwards compatible game and there is no version of an enhanced or a port directly for it. You will get basically that just backwards compatible game but again you can hit that button. You can see that filter very useful worked fine and i got to admit i hope all systems in the future do that kind of thing when backwards compatibility is so pressured and so pushed so looking at the power this system. What you have is a massive amount of power in a small amount of space and it is really shown in two ways. First the speed of everything going into games and fast travelling and games is mind blowing even entitles that are no way shape or form as of yet optimized for the system which are threes. Fast travel is so fast. Regardless you'll see some video in the background probably I'll try to record some. That is so fast that it is impossible to read most of the longer hints. This also occurred in multiple other games that were in no way shape or form enhanced for the system. This also occurred by the way off of the usb external. I wanna make sure that's clear the usb external ssd. I did have that. I wasn't using seventy two hundred. Rpm hard drive or anything but the external was so fast that reading the hints was almost impossible. Actually had this issue on yakuza. Which is a game made for the system where we had a transfer of speed and this is something that all the competitors going to be doing something we'll see on. Pc once envy ame really takes off on pc as well. Where companies that do hints during their loading screens are going to have to figure out a new way of doing it. Which i'm okay with by the way. Because i think sometimes the loading screen was a chance for us to go. Take a pee right not anymore. They are blinding. Quick resume is also patched directly into this. I wanna talk about quick. Because though i discussed it a moment ago as a loading feature. I didn't discuss it in the. I'm going to now. Which is the actual quick resume itself. So not only. Do we see games. That really aren't prepped. For this being absolutely stellar when it comes to loading times when you jump in there with a game that is set up for quick resume it is phenomenal to be able to jump into and out of a game as quickly as we see here in a couple of games that are specifically made for this you can see that this kind of system and architecture and the jump to ssd is such a boon for the console industry. This is awesome. It is a huge difference. It is hard to even qualify this or quantify it to you guys without you seen it firsthand and playing it so jumping into all these games including games. That weren't quick resumed to see how everything loaded. We have some insanely fast loading times. We have quick travel times in. Which are that are in the one point. Five second a range. That's insanity you've got ones that are even a little faster depending on how close you are. I jumped in and out. I looked at quick resume. And i looked at the transfer speeds and i see the fps on some of these games upping especially the games. Unfortunately there's a couple of for that. I can't discuss but we see these increases in power and i think that that's what's telling about this console in particular. Is that microsoft decided. They wanted to on board people with a new system and new power. It's a little bit like reading your pc right but not switching out windows. You are jumping into a new ecosystem when it comes to the hardware but the front end probably won't be that much different and maybe you won't even notice it and that sort of the way microsoft is set this up for instance in a lot of games you go in and you just do one or two options. Four k or performance mode in yakuza. It was normal and a resolution mode. And if i switched to fourteen forty p than it was actually the performance mode so you had like normal performance and high resolution so you have these different modes that are sort of able to you. But it's not confusing. And i like that because when i talked about all these things these different types of software your backwards compatible your made for your enhanced your free sink. It can be confusing and microsoft has made it so that the things i talked to you about. You really don't even need to give a shit about because you will notice the moment you load batman and it's loading so fast that when you hit a button it's just the movies over and the game has started and you're sitting there going okay. That is the cool part of these systems. This new cpu power new gp our our gp power offer resolution. They offer the frame rate that we've been wanting as advancements in these consoles especially since we're getting away from mobile see pews but we're seeing it in a different way which is the loading which is very cool. It's not world changing. I will admit that it's not world changing. I'm excited about it. I enjoyed it. I think it's a huge boon but it's not world changing but at the same time it's improvements in a place we haven't seen before we have been tied down to that. Ancient architecture of old hard drives that have always just creaked along and just you just waiting for the spindle to start going on rare rare. When you're like oh my god it's dying and here with ssd it's just nothing. It just works. However i did have a couple issues. I wanna bring up the first issue other than some issues with the os is. I jumped in. And i use quick resume on three games. I know support. It and i bounced in and out about nine times in out into the other into the one into the out of the other one about the fifth time twice so i did this ten times about every fifth time i would load into a game and there would be a moment where the controller and the xbox didn't know i was there and and the character the game would be running the sound would be running. This is a small thing. But i just want to mention it because i'm assuming consumers are going to notice this and nothing happened and i'd be like whoa. We'll i'd have to hit a button a couple times and then it'd be like oh and the character move yet when i went back and forth back into it. It didn't happen. It's almost like the second or third returned to that game. There was a momentary issue. Not a huge deal but something you should be aware of also when jumping into and out of these games be aware saving the state. Okay so if the game is not quick resumed capable you could possibly end up having to save. That's all the way back at a quick save area. I would personally say quick. Resume as great but make sure game supports it with the icon. That's the filter. Because if you don't and you do think you're doing quick save and quick resume and you pop out and then pop back in. It's going to go back to the main title and you can end up losing whatever cover or whatever you know. Save that you actually had. This is also something. I noticed because in some games i would drop in out in the game would say we've lost connection with controller. A this is important. Because i know some people are saying i want to be able to play a multiplayer game and have it loading up into a lobby. That may take me a long time to get into and then play a single player game and occasionally go back and forth now. This isn't instantaneous. When you're quick resuming so be aware that but additionally you will occasionally have the issue where it just pops in and it's lost connection and it sort of has to be reminded that you're there with that caveat it still works really well and with that caveat of the frame rate being a little bit honky on the fourth third tenth try. It just works the way i expected it to work. It works awesome. The os does exactly what i expected. So when you look at this system. The next big thing is the controller. I don't know how long i'm going. What are we. We're at twenty five minutes. Oh my god. I gotta shortness up. Anyway i'm gonna talk real quick. I'm not so you've got your controller. Standard controller exports controller. Not the elite improved d pad. I like it not bad. And it's got usb c for power it's got your Normal microphone and headset connection. It also has a share button right in the middle. Now i gotta say something about the share button. The original power button on the xbox controller would do most of what the share button. Does i not a big fan of the share button on on the system in particular because it really doesn't do much that we couldn't have done anyway and there isn't really any type of twitch or facebook or streaming suite of any kind that i can find inside of the xbox to help streamer sort of share stuff. Anyway you can share to your timeline and that kind of thing but not really necessarily more quickly that button press also showed me that the time for recording for the length of videos is not very long. I think it was three minutes for ten. Adp that's pretty short. And i don't know if that as is actually extended somewhere else. I did go into the configuration settings and adjust that but it wasn't necessarily entirely happy with how that all sort of ended up a rolling out the controller itself. You have the basic standard controller the signal this works with all the xboxes and has what i consider to be one of the better batteries that you can actually find. Controller lasts a long time and well sorry. I didn't mean batteries. But i meant you can put your own batteries in there. It's got the hibernation that lasts longer than almost any controller now hibernation that microsoft uses that allows the controller to go into a low power mode allows for your batteries to last longer. I apologize so you do have what i consider to be one of the better input devices like the triggers. And i know we've got some competition out there with haptic triggers. That kind of stuff. It'll be interesting to see how those work. But overall i liked this controller of been a huge fan and technically. This is sort of exactly what. I wanted from their controller. Other than voice input. Which i've talked about at different times now when you look at this you've got your control you've got your system you've got to set up you plug it in and he start playing your games. Your store works pretty much. The exact same way as everything else and what you have with. The xbox series x is and the s in a slightly lesser way but the s also has the envy improvements. What you get is a system. That once again is sort of muted in. Its presentation of the improvements. They're there but they're not instantly noticeable yet. Open up the os and you're like. Hey this looks the same. You open up a couple options you like. Hey this looks the same. And then you load a fucking game. And you're like this is definitely not the same so you really do have to start experiencing the titles. The yoga's some others legion. Those kind of things within the ray tracing start seeing some stuff and be like. Oh i get it and i know that we all have differences and what we want. There are people out there that have no issues with thirty. Fps they want all the trimmings on some games they want him super high resolution super high amounts of effects. They don't mind the fps for instance. In let's say yuccas is turn based but then they wanna play their quake or something like that as a super high resolution as are super high frame rate. I think what we're getting with the series x is that ability to choose between all those and microsoft's making it pretty easy at least so far to identify how to do that or ninety nine. We're going to talk a little bit about price. Four hundred ninety nine dollars for this to ninety nine for the series s and this is not a review of the series s. I just wanna give you some prices in there somewhere. Is your ex as well as your original for ninety nine is a lot to ask somebody when you're not really offering some kind of brand new number of exclusives i don't think is actually and this is just me being honest i don't think anybody's Giving a high number of i guess. Ip's that our brand new that. I'm really excited for the first year. Maybe no neither. Neither competitor is but what we're getting is backwards compatibility and game pass. Xbox is going the way of value to what they own and have and making sure backwards. Compatibility is not just. There is improved in in automatic ways. For instance of freesync that might work for your xbox original game for instance. Hdr automatic for your prior games. That's a big deal and something that we're not seeing other people do. That's very cool about the series x four ninety nine. That's a lot of money. Then when you look at their pricing structure they also have a pay as you go kind of system where you can use them. Use their credit and you can get one for. I believe thirty. Four ninety nine which will also include game pass. I'll say that unless you're a really high end gamer if you haven't x. Right now that's probably okay because this system is offering improvements the x. Already offer some improvements for backwards compatibility and we can see how the first line and i wave of hardware actually goes out. We've seen red brings. But i've i've seen no hardware issues with this at all. It's been in fact. Phenomenally robust other than the fingerprint attack. But i think four ninety nine is a big ask from a normal game if your game. That wants the newest and the best. This thing is so many orders of magnitude more powerful than the prior systems. It's pretty mind boggling. Especially when you just take into account the gpu and the cpu and the ram. But now you're taking into account your ability to ray tracing and the ability to have that s in there and just move stuff lickety-split and improve every single game in some way automatically which sometimes it feels like even on a pc. You won't get that. Because maybe you'll put a video card in but it cpu bottlenecked or its hardware dr bottleneck and you need new hard-drive four ninety nine a big ask. It's probably a wait for a little while for four ninety nine unless you can do one of the payment plans. Or you're a premier gamer. You need the best of the. This is for sure it but it's a large amount of money in a certain economy. Where maybe that's not really necessarily what you need because these systems offer the same thing as you will get with their prior systems just way way better
For The Love Of Begonias
"In our main segment today. Ellen i wanted to talk about begonias because this is you know in the fall i bring my begonia plants back from summer camp and into the house and in most i would say most rooms of my house that have a window there is at least one. Begonia and the range of sizes and types is so amazing and it occurred to me that if some of our listeners don't have a lot of experience with begonias we need to be a cheerleader for this planned and tell people all of the variety and the amazing qualities that so many of them. Have you know. I wasn't sure when you said you wanted to talk about begonias. I was pretty sure you were talking about indoor begonias but i also thought could we just save a moment sometime to talk about the hardy begonia. Because it's such a great perennial and so underused so just let's make sure we save time for that to absolutely well. Of course on my mind is the not hardy begonias in that. I grow many of them in pots and they go outside in the summertime an inside in the wintertime. Let's just kind of talk about the fact that there are so many you know i read that there are fifteen hundred species of begonia. That does not surprise me. And they're hugely varied from the little ones with tiny little demure flowers to some of those giant leave tropical rainforest hairy plants that scramble for yards. But i bet you have a favorite. Do you have a favorite whatever. I looked at ten minutes ago. Yeah i gotta say. I find the wrecks pagodas to be absolutely irresistible the foliage color. The fact that you don't even care if they flower because the patterns of color and the shape of the leaf. Just i just love rex begonias. It's interesting to me. That the leaves of at least i think the majority of begonias are asymmetrical this plant. That they don't have symmetrical leaves which often makes them more interesting and the wrecks pagonis as you say the color purples and blues and silver. Those are just wonderful plants for putting in say window boxes shade or you know as a container component in shade gardens You asked about my favorite's the one. That sort of immediately comes to mind as one that i find so intriguing is one that a friend gave me and it's called. The immense begonia and it is immense the stem on this begonia is a good two inches in diameter and it kind of winds around like a snake and then the the leaves are good six inches across and long. But the most amazing thing about it is to stems. And of both the go up to the leaves. And the underside of the leaves are covered with bright pink hairs. That almost look like thorns. And i would love to see a picture of the i do not know that begonia. But your description is making me desire it and it flowers in the wintertime. It's clearly triggered into flowering by long night short days And so starting. In about january it puts out lung fronts a bright pink flowers and when you have it in a window the wonderful thing is those those bright pink hairs get back lit when it comes in the window. It is stunning. It is huge. It is very heavy. I bet when. I brought it in my husband said. Why don't you let me help you with that. And i said you know the funny thing about this. Begonia is the plant is heavier than the pot. The clay pot was not as heavy as the actual plant. Because it's you know so massive.
How to get quoted in the media
"240 have you ever looked at? Jane or what an article and wondered me how other Founders or CEOs are getting quoted in these stories. It's probably not a happy accident. It's probably a PR person placing them that way there but wage it doesn't mean that's the only way to get in there. So today I'm going to give you some Insider tips on how to get placed in the media as a thought leader a, enter an expert may want to be considered a thought leader. Then you have to prepare yourself in this situation to get quoted or to get asked for expert insights. So these are the few tips that might help you get started and get positioned for this kind of right now first. You have to have your basics down first prepare a brief bio that highlights your expertise and why you're an expert so think of yourself in the biggest form possible how many years of experience what are your degrees? What are Awards You've Won or big clients that you've had. I know it's tough sometimes to put yourself in the shoes of how you want to be viewed as a professional, but if you can't see yourself them, Nobody else will make sure you note, you know, any author articles or Publications and this is all intact so it should be maybe two paragraphs of a bayou and it's always nice to have like a bio and a short bio depending on the different rules for Publications or broadcast. They'll be able to publish one of the other second have a really nice high birth had shot and a lifestyle shop ready to go. So headshot is basically, you know, the face face forward had shot that you might have white background smiling recognized maybe up to your bust and then a lifestyle shot is more like, you know, you laughing or it looks like they're working or you're walking, you know, it could be anything. You can be enjoying a hobby but not sure you're the only one in the shot and it's high resolution which basically is 300 DPI dots per inch you might want to have both of those handy so that you can have a little perspective and if you want more I mean 3 a.m. I've had shots is always a good number to have I think investing in this is really great because it always makes you look much better and positions you as really the expert that you are. So the first thing to do when you're getting ready for this kind of activity is kind of set up some goals and I would set up like a monthly time to go over topics because this is a way of you being relevant and timely issue with what's going on in the news and what's going on in your industry. So I would maybe take a few maybe a couple hours like the day before a month starts or the very beginning of the month to outline like these are off to five topics that I might be talking about this month. And so figure out your position being able to talk about relevant current events is key. But what is your position on those current events? And the more second thing is you could say the more controversial things you could say about it. The more likely it is that you are going to be leveraged as an expert. So have something really insightful. To say have a solution and if you want to Stir It Up Stir It Up know how far you're willing to go and obviously the more you're willing to bend the rules. The more exciting that is odd for people to listen to and include in their stories next whatever three to five topics that you've kind of come up with developed your can response or statement. And so this will serve as a foundation for when you're ready to respond to something that hits the news you can grab a statement and then make a few tweaks to it and then send it off and that way it like reduces the amount of time that you have to spend in the moment. If you see an article and you're like, oh I want to respond to it. It's already it's already ready to go. You might just have to like edit it for like five ten minutes. Lastly you made me want to make a list of reporters or Outlets that you think are most relevant to you that particular month or you've been thinking about it or you really want to be an expert or position. They're dead if it's broadcast or news make sure you're watching The Daily News and that you respond right away, but identify 5 to 10 people who might be controlling editorial content. So that's typically Anna broadcast. It's the producer and those emails are found directly on those news websites, if it's written then you might want to look at the T. I see who's the editor-in-chief or the content director or on the digital media director or the online media editor. So you might want to have a few different contacts and get this is the moment where you create relationships. So what you could do proactively if you spend one or two hours doing this at the beginning of the month. I promise that you'll have some kind of result where you'll feel good about spending the time. It'll definitely be worth your time. A little bit ski if you're a really really really, you know want to get a placement but let's say you just want to put yourself out there and you do it every month and you kind of see it as a newsletter and you add it to something about doing almost like a newsletter distribution or something that at the beginning of the month. What you could do is say hey, you know, my name is John Smith and I'm an expert in artificial intelligence package this month. I see there's a lot of interesting Trends and these were the things that I'm talking about. If you're writing a story. Please contact me and I'll be happy to make some commentary and of course you're going to make a case for yourself a little bit more than what I decide but like also why they should contact you because you're an expert in Ai and you've worked with you as many companies and then you list those three little bullet points that you've outlined earlier and your position on them. And if it's interesting enough, they might want to pick it up and write it so it could be an activity you do every quarter every month, but then them Emails from you on a regular basis, they'll start to get to see your name. You keep calling yourself the same thing. So consistency is very important. You'll one month be an AI expert and the next next month be an expert in economics. You can't do that. Make sure it's consistent your branding for your personal self means to be consistent with what you're saying and what you're pitching.
Vansilli talks about CS and trying out Diabolical
"Our next guest on the centering East sports podcasts has been involved with the scene for a very long time before it was even called E. Sports, believe it or not please welcome to the show van. Silly guys. Thank you so much for having me. It's going great in some kicked in for the past two days. So I'm like a little bit groggy here and there, but still super excited to be part of the show. Thank you so much for having me. You've been. Go ahead tell us about I mean he you've been pretty busy. It's okay to be a little. For sure for I. Think I think as we're GONNA talk about him I'm I'm assuming very soon is. Valerie Valerie has been keeping myself busy, not only just trying to follow the scene, but just trying to rank up as well because I I feel like to this day even though I've been in the scene for such a long time for sports, you still have to prove yourself to the community so I don't want people to go like, oh should caster kick w what a bad castor you know so I I need to bring myself up to the diamond platform at least and then hopefully immortal at some point. It's cool that you mentioned that I wanNA actually touch on that for a second say. been casting for a long time right? Not since what two thousand and three? Thousand two, thousand and three. It was my first ever event I started really dippy my toes into it in two thousand and two with quake three urban terror. So we're we're going way back at that point you know. So we tim and I both played quake three. Urban terrorists. Okay. Okay. What what is urban terror I in another interview you? Yes. So it could actually it was the the MoD for quake three actually helped me transition over to counteracting duty one when those came out because urban terror was kind of like. A similar version of action quake with you guys played quake. quake. But if not, you could compare counterstrike with with some bunny hopping, including stamina and sliding. So it was a lot of. You had to buy weapons. So they were they were actually Actually, had to choose weapons instead of buying. So you're allowed to choose for example, let's say you go end for each one of them had little perks, and if you chose certain perks than it would nullify getting certain type of equipment, she could banish your teammates by budget holding caps lock, and then the the they're able to go off way but the damage internal organs shot in the leg or no body or head has that type of damage. So it has that type of hit. Boxes. So you really have to be good and in terms of aiming for the head to to make sure that you kill Vassar but the the same style is still very counterstrike he where it's like a five five or six six but you bunny hop across the map and plant bombs on onto different sites, and of course, the opponents have to defuse or you have just a regular team survivor. So it's just like within a timer, you have to kill everybody at a certain point. Survivor played coming from that arena shooter world. ANY INTERESTING DIABOLICAL I've been playing diabolical with like the first Beta came out I love it I'm I'm really not good at it. Actually I'm good with the I'm with the the what they call the rocket launcher I forgot what the they have different course but the one that's like the rail gun holy crap. I'm not good with a really be more like when I play to increase I was all about rails but now I just can't hit anything I. Think I got that boom that funny hit me but. The boomer foul yeah one hundred percent I still I still love watching fatality play I still love watching lex play and de can play as well and of course, they're screaming a lot and you see a couple of local tournaments or smaller tournaments with like a Dang and all them playing him to just to be able to see like PS PSB arena ps instead of being quick champions what they tried to do I'm just happy to see a different style or that style comeback with diabolical to what quarter cle the routes used to be for for quick. Do you think the arena shooter will ever come back in a big way. With diabolical I think it will to be honest like because when when you when you used to launch a for example painkiller or quake three, CPA, it was all about how fast people are moving around the map in how good they were in terms of aiming but also predicting where your opponents going to be because you have to control the rail, you had to control the Rock and you have to control the items. There's so much mental timing that goes into playing a repeat that people don't really understand the the whole concept around good you have to be to be top. Notch in arena ps but as a simple spectator, it's so much easier to follow. Because now you know it's a one vs one. You know who you're following your when you're looking at the screen and you know basically the concept of He needs to pick up weapons he needs to the other guy you look at the HP, you look Winter GonNa, pick up armor, and then you know that there's going to be like the whole time or kind of thing what I like about diabolical in the dual into dual range in what the ad is the i? Think it's called Golden Kill or The last kill. Agar's should have something. You have to basically within a ten minute timer. If you're actually destroying the guy that tarmac goes down a little bit faster, and then once it gets to that timer, the wouldn't lead still has to do one more kill to secure the win. So there's still a chance for the second person to to make a comeback into the game and hopefully win a sudden death overtime or something, which is great because back then again, when looking quake three and you're looking at. Painkiller it's like if the guys by five enters two minutes, left users hiding for the rest of the map and he's just GonNa win by time. Even with quake champions just with this last quake con championship like the forget the guys who were in the finals like the guy was up by eight kills and it was like. Yeah. Exactly. It's super boring. So I think that adds a nice concept and a good little changed uranium ps where I think I think I could actually get pretty big I. Mean you have some big names that are still support and behind it like I said like Didi keys in there and and I'm a digi wheat lows playing it similar it from time to time and he has like it i. mean it's it's produced by good studios and two good has been very, very, very much involved with with sports in his in his days. and His career as well. So I think I think they have the right people to try to push into the next level.
Startup Streamer Quibi Quits
"A huge Hollywood experiment ended its life in a way that seems somehow fitting qube accompany designed to bring miniature Netflix's quality shows to your smartphone call. It quits earlier this month like it's programs which were no longer than ten minutes apiece. quickies vary life was itself short only about six months long the infant media company hit attracted almost two billion dollars from investors about one hundred, fifty, million dollars in advertising and some big name actors and directors. As a result quibbles dramatic closure has spawned no end of speculative criticism about what the startup did wrong and whether it's leaders Hollywood powerhouse, Jeffrey Katzenberg and former HP. CEO Meg Whitman did anything right? In case you haven't heard of it. The original idea behind Qube was to make high quality programs that were short enough to watch from start to finish. While waiting to do something else say riding the subway were standing at checkout line. These wouldn't be user generated youtube like videos but what qube envisioned as the quote next generation of storytelling dramas comedies a non-fiction programs cut into quick bites the origin of the company's name you get the idea. QUBE had the bad luck to launch during the pandemic that meant the service designed explicitly for people out and about debuted when people were in definitely not out and about position as another streamer. But Not at first on your TV quickly did what most streamers and new apps do when it launched in early April it offered a ninety day free trial about a million and a half people signed up and presumably began watching quickies original shows thrillers like. Wireless about a drunk man caught in a New Year's Eve snowstorm free Ray Sean drama about a black man accused of killing a police officer and last looks a series about scandals in the fashion world. As I said earlier at launch, you can only watch on a smartphone despite the fact that most viewers were quarantined in their homes with perfectly usable TV's at their disposal. It took a few more months for quick to make the TV leap. The question back in May and June was how many of those initial free viewers would convert to paying customers quickies price was high five month with ads were eight dollars without them as the verge points out apple TV plus costs four, ninety, nine a month worse quickies higher prices more expensive than Disney plus. The answer on those conversions was clear. Qube didn't get anywhere near enough money or viewers, and with that dearth viewers, some advertisers threatened to canceled on October Twenty Second Katzenberg Whitman published an open letter on medium announcing queries collapse. The founders laid some of the blame on Covid nineteen but not all in addition to timing they said, another likely reason could be. That the idea itself wasn't strong enough to justify a standalone streaming service. Indeed. A great deal of the criticism says exactly that the format itself was flawed from the start ten minutes may have been far too long for some content and far too short for others. A sort of nether world that works for user generated youtube content, but not for expensive productions that aspire to be the next Netflix. As one example, the Guardian reporter. Jack Bernhardt commended free ratio on actors Steffan Jones Laurence Fishburne an emmy winner. Jasmine Safest Jones for spectacular performances in powerful production. But he added quote it feels almost offensive to everyone involved that I can only watch it on tiny phone screen. Furthermore, he said it should have been a two hour film not fifteen quick bites. The company is exploring selling the rights to some content screenwriters and producers with shows underdevelopment or left to try to sell them elsewhere a tough sell given that most media companies can't use five or ten minute episodes. is returning about three hundred, fifty million dollars to investors and giving severance to two hundred employees. The Wall Street Journal reports, Katzenberg and Whitman's letter puts quickies. Of the entire very busy streaming media ecosystem the executives would never have imagined launching during a pandemic they said, but they admitted other businesses have faced these unprecedented challenges and have found their way through it. Indeed, we've reported here on boom times for Netflix's and Disney plus among others all of benefited enormously from lockdowns. The mistake Qube made lies in a different sphere altogether says verge critic Julia Alexander Qube didn't fail because TIKTOK. existed she says, it failed because executives refuse to see Tiktok its biggest competition she wrote tick tock has exploded globally with an ever growing mountain of user generated short form video video that is virtually free to produce free to consume. But qube had its I trained on net flicks if Alexander is correct quimby was looking for threats or a role model in the wrong direction. In an already struggling Hollywood, it's hard to watch the layoffs of employees and the suffering of artists who shows are now killed. A great deal of talent converged around quipping remains to be seen. We're all that talent. Finding out.
A Recipe From Deborah Madison
"This is Deborah Madison the author of an onion in my pocket, and the recipe I want to talk about is an Eggplant Gra ten with a golden. Dome Saffron recalled the custard. This has long been one of my favorite dishes. But when we made it at Greens, I used to add greer cheese to it to make it more substantial main course those who are concerns that that time people felt satisfied I've now taken the greer cheese out since it wasn't there in the original recipe, which is actually by Richard Only, and here's how it goes. So you're GONNA start with about two pounds or a bit more of a plant. All of oil, a small red onion finely diced upon clove of garlic minced a half a teaspoon of herbs vence or a tablespoon margin lease chopped. Two. And a half pounds of full tomatoes that are ripe that are peeled, seeded and chopped or two cups of crush canned tomatoes.

Parmigiano reggiano cheese, and finally ten large Basil Leaves tournant pieces. Okay. We're going to heat the oven to four hundred degrees Fahrenheit with and then cut the eggplants in half lengthwise. If you've got just one large eggplant, cut it in quarters, slice each quarter crosswise about a half an inch thick. Slices lightly with oil on both sides and then set them on a sheet pan and bake until the bottom sides have brown. About fifteen minutes. Turn them over and Brown. The second side, this often takes less time. So do check after about eight minutes. When the EGGPLANT is done, remove it from the oven and reduced the heat to three hundred fifty degrees.

South Carolina vs. LSU Football Preview
"Certainly one of the most eagerly anticipated games of the day tomorrow night in Baton Rouge between South Carolina and Lsu. Castaneda joining us from down there Quin. Thank you very very much. Appreciate the time, and it looks like a weather. Is An issue for what's going on down there right now? Well, just for the moment I'm across the street Tiger Stadium's to my left in their facility straight across the street I'm about to record up and advancer for tomorrow and had a little lightening. got. Dark severe winds and pouring but you can see the nicer weather up on the horizon. So things should be back to normal about ten minutes. We'll good because. That is a place that doesn't need Louisiana does not need any more bad weather. Quinn let's talk a little bit before we get to the game just about your job this year it's different I'm sure. A lot of zoom calls a lot of unusual situations caused by the pandemic. How would you describe the the obvious difference between this and every other year you've been on the sidelines for ESPN and ABC. Well, it's taken a lot of the fun out of it taken a lot of the things that I enjoyed get on campus to meet with the coaches to talk to the strength coaches just to get a vibe for how that team's doing and you learn so much whether it's Roman down the hallway and talking to a tight ends coach or bumping into a recruiting intern about video, they just paint so so that. Part of my investigation is is far less exciting. This year there's no social aspects in terms of our TV crew, our TV team so it's just zooms and when I'm on the road I'm the only one here are our broadcast crew will will broadcast this from Bristol. I'm the only one here. So I kind of treat this like I'm a spy, I don't touch anything I talked to strangers and I couldn't. quit. There's always a challenge on the sidelines especially. When there is weather but is it any or how different is it i? Guess I'm trying to ask dealing with the crew. Fifteen hundred miles away or maybe longer or farther right upstairs nothing you can see them but you at least know that they were seeing the same thing you're seeing. Yeah there's a little bit of a time delay in the audio so it can be anywhere from two seconds four seconds. So I've been on a crew with Jason Bonetti and Rod Gilmore. The last couple years Mike spent hot the whole game this year I've changed crews almost every week, and because we're doing it remotely. They can't have my mic on because we'd be talking over each other. So we do it old school and I'll talk to the producer I talked back and say, Hey, after the third down, play I wanNA talk about upon her coming out for hey, if they make a first down here I want to talk about how they're tight ends doing a great job so. Do it old school and go through the go through the producer in the in the remote truck. In order in order to get on air whereas in the past I could just talk and we were seamless. Clean on the sidelines I mean to say the least there are restrictions what are they and how much do you have to tiptoe around? It's really not bad. I mean we won I. Did a game not they actually made me call the game from the stands in the front row was good seat but I really couldn't get a feel for what was going on on the benches since then they've just widened appalled widen areas it's actually easier now because there's less hangers on, there's less alums, there's less NFL scouts until the sidelines are vacant and it makes my job a lot easier. I also feel pretty secure in that the players and coaches have all been tested recently as recently as Friday or Saturday morning. So I, feel good in that regard So it's actually almost easier less fans less crowds more space. Speaking of testing. How often do you have to be tested? we test once a week it's either an ad home test, and then you mail it in test results come back in about thirty six hours or it's an onsite tasks on a Thursday afternoon then you quarantine. And then Friday, they released you so so far knock on wood six for six negative tests. That would be Kinda. Nerve wracking you show up at a game and you have to sweat it out and you hope you don't get a a Nick Sabin positive. Let's talk about the game because. It's a really interesting game. Let's start with South Carolina just your. As I know you do gather as much information as you can you probably would like to. Be Able to gather more in person but. Your impressions of what you've seen to them and and what you expect. Well they beat Auburn as you know, and they got the three turnovers and converted those in touchdowns. My issue was South Carolina's they're operating an offense with very limited downfield wide receiver threats shy Smith is a natural slot receiver. Colin Hill is is working Mike, Lobos offense efficiently and their offensive line in running backs or carrying the day. Okay. That's with this team is I'm not sure they're ever going to be a high scoring team defensively they're really good corners who can shut you down they add to the box so. I think South Carolina given that Lsu has a freshman quarterback. I'm leaning towards them having some success defensively in this ball game. So I kinda like Carolina's ability to negate lsu with a freshman quarterback but Carolina's physical they're tough. They're not nothing flashy about him and I think big plays are hard for them I. Think they have to manufacture find ways to manufacturer big plays but I think this team is definitely moving in the right direction I. Think they've improved each week. And the other side of that you alluded to the quarterback situation team that has struggled mightily on defense quarterback play has been pretty good I. Know I know it's impossible to gauge because we don't really have a lot of information but. What have you what have you been able to learn about where they are right now? Yet, teach gets the start a freshman Ponchatoula high school. He's gigantic six, six, two, hundred and forty two pounds nets down from to sixty s a big toll righty and you watch his high school tapes just drops in the pocket and he conflict the ball and it goes forty yards without him even trying he seems like he's calm. He's Louisiana product of this dream for him the ADRENALIN will be running. Also expect to see, Max? Johnson. The son of NFL, quarterback Brad Johnson a lefty also tall but more of a dual threat and when you think about calling the game around a freshman quarterback making his first start, you know any kind of run game would be beneficial and to put the quarterback in successful positions. Early in the game, get him hit but but get a couple first downs give him some easy throws and I think that'll be on the mind of lsu going to be a little more conservative game plan I'd. Imagine. You know he's got targets downfield terrace Marshall their running game I thought was anemic Missouri game that was the most disappointing part of the game in my eyes Missouri was without three defensive tackles in that game and Lsu had no running game whatsoever good news for the Tigers to get Ed Ingram back at left guard. But this is an offense through the air with Miles Brennan that's been outstanding. But now you've got a new freshman quarterback. So expectations drop again, I'm seeing a little bit more of a lower scoring game here. In Clinton's you've seen them. The. Biggest used on defense. Would give. Horrible And coach today sentence embarrassing. Alignment. Very, often they're they're moving at a snap making checks that is when the coverage changes on the fly because of emotion because of formation change that has been a dismal day of given up big play after big play against Mississippi State, it was more catching and run the air raid defense was was atrocious quite honestly continued to play man defense got shredded by crossing patterns but I was at the Mizzou game and That game was defined by busts. I mean just blatant bus where I got him. No you got to I got you got him guys wide open touchdown in the running game. Their linebackers are not playing physical. They're not playing north not playing north. They're not getting to the line of scrimmage and engaging blockers to waiting for runners they're missing tackles remember the tyler beatty runs Missouri fiscally untouched broke attack Lens. Gone So. Those are the headlines here new quarterbacks for Lsu and a defense that has had no answers.
Quibi is shutting down just months after launching
"The Mobile Streaming Platform Qube is shutting down. It launched barely six months ago but it struggled to find its footing. It did not pick up many monthly subscribers despite getting nearly two billion dollars in major Hollywood investments and having star-studded content from people like Chrissy Teigen and Liam. Hemsworth why it failed though is up for debate, qube blames the pandemic since the platform was meant to be watched on the go on your phone shows. How just? Five to ten minute episodes but fewer people are out and about sitting in waiting rooms or commuting on public transit right now. So quickly says it's business model is just no longer viable though critics argue it would never have worked since consumers already have other free options for short-term video like Youtube either way the company will look to find buyers for its original content in the coming months. So maybe you'll get to see the shows after all.
Using Meditation to Overcome Toxic Thoughts Featuring Amelia Adrien
"Amelia's thank you so much for being here to talk with us today. So welcome I'm really happy to be here. So this is a topic that I think can be intimidating for some people. So how can I approach meditation as a beginner? Yeah. I agree I think it can. It can feel like it's something that is other people who that other people don't well, and maybe we can fill that. We don't do it so well but really the the the best thing to now is you can't really get it right? You can't really get it wrong. If you would just to take one long in hand. Exhale with me right now focusing attention on that `grats. comes. Into your nostrils. and. Out. Again. In that moment in that one breath, you'll meditating you reset your body. Your brain your nervous system. Some meditation. Media simply focusing your mind on one thing, and you can meditate when anything can be positive or negative. I was looking at the definition of meditation on it's shown to be the act of giving your attention to one thing. And we associate with being common relaxed actually you can meditate on absolutely anything it could be that you meditate on your brass. It could be that you have more of an active meditation and you meditate on nature as you're going for a walk, it could be quite meditate on the beauty of a flower. So it's a thought or a study on one object. And really one of the simplest things you can do as a beginner. The simplest types of meditation that you can do is accommodating meditation and this is really what you just watch the grass just like we did right at the beginning. So you become aware of the sensation of the breath is it comes into in through the nostrils. And then down into the belly on the inhale. And then on the ex how the breath travels up and out through the nostrils. and. You just watch the breath. The sensation of the breath is it comes into the body and then as it comes out to the body and you can do this for three breaths, you could do it for three minutes. You could do it for ten minutes. You can do it for sixty minutes. It's really just you know it's really a how long is a piece of string but what I suggest people who just starting out Is that you create a little habit of meditation practice. So you make maybe a little promised yourself. You're going to do it for seven days say and see how that goes. That goes. Okay. Then maybe up to eleven days then maybe up to twenty one days and you just see how you go rather than say I can now be a meditative for the rest of my life you set yourself something that's achievable. Something that feels that you can do right. At, the way to really make it part of like a routine I find is to do at the same time every day. So then when that time of day comes around you like offices, my meditation time, and so then you kind of it almost becomes automatic. So for me, the best time for me to do it is in the morning. So it's literally get up go to the unsettled meditation cushion and stop. Don't turn on your phone tummy not definitely don't go downstairs on leading the dishwasher. You know the the world will start to come at you with many many different things to do will tell you a more important than than taking time with yourself than just taking time with your own with your own being. Prioritized baton for me the way that that works if I just fussing the morning. Now I know if if you've got little kids that can be really hard to the kids will get out probably before you now be asking and demanding for your attention. So if that's the case, then you just located in a different part of your day but choosing a time so that when that time comes around, you're like, okay, that's your trigger. So then it becomes more habitual. and. I love how simple and how really customizable you make that I think that's beautiful because I think in my mind meditation has be this very strict long. Thing that I'm. Doing. But I think it really is what fits your life and I think that's a beautiful sentiment. Yes a show. So, what are the benefits that I can gain from meditation sesame we it gives me a great understanding of who I am. It helps me understand who I am away from the different roles that I play in my life mother daughter wife friend business not helps me move away from all of these other roles and it helps me connect to that true quieter nature actually within within me. There's a quote that I really love from. Colin Young, which says the welcome ask you who you are and if you don't know the wealth will tell you. So in this way, what I love about meditation is that it's not something spaced out. It's not something dreamy. It's something very centralizing and very clarifying in in in identifying locating. Understanding more about who you really are. You're able to own your position in the world. You're able to take in an empowered way your position in the world and feels really that feels really positive and not doesn't come with your fast meditation oil second or your said even your fifty, it's something that's may be cumulative. So you might experience that end the first few times on. That's wonderful but it's something that you become familiar with like Oh. Yeah. I remember this is the calm of of me. This is who I really can be. This numerous scientific studies on the benefits of meditation and these all have great value. But I've kind of had a look there seem to be five main benefits that we can get from meditation. The first one is it calms UNAC- stabilizes us so. One of the main benefits that it can bring us is this sense of stability and calm. It can help center US stablest into this present moment rather than projecting into the future or ruminating over the past set keeps US keeps US present moment away, which then helps to common stabilize us. That's kind of a one of the fundamental benefits really of meditation. So. The second thing is it improves focus. The practice is helping us focus our attention on one thing. So we can then translate that three to many different aspects of our lives. That that thing that it seems to do is increase resilience to stress. So it's shown that meditation lessons, the inflammatory responses to those who are exposed to psychological stress. What it actually has been shown to doing studies is the dump activity in the Magdala and increases connections between the Magdala on the prefrontal CORTEX CORTEX. So both of those parts of the brain help us to be less reactive to stresses and significantly I think they help us to recover back from stress experience. It stresses pot of life. It's not something that we can eradicate or eliminate. But we can do is train on south through meditation to recover quicker from it. This becomes baseline. This becomes more who we are. Throughout the day. In in particular moments after meditation.

We're used to buy things from our phone signing documents from our full for better for worse requiring much more instant gratification.

The more people want to become youtubers than athletes, which is a massive shift on the platform that Gen Z. wants to be an influence or on tiktok seems the easiest for people because we've obviously seen Charlie demilio becoming one of the biggest influencers in under a year the conversations around the actual talks right now are like living on other platforms, but it's Super Valuable Tiktok. Stars are all spending time on Youtube now. It's a natural growth phase so Are tiktok stars the new. Youtube. Stars. There's a whole correlation there in the sense that if you're big on Tiktok, the way you can really continuously build your audience status sustainable is on Youtube. But many have not been able to be successful on Youtube. It's more likely. They will not be successful actually because they haven't really adapted on how to make long form content there used to making sixty second videos which doesn't translate well to Youtube. You Wanna be making ten minute videos because that's how you monetize. There is no. Easy variety factor you just gotta be really good at distribution and marketing honestly especially in tech talk there so much remix name culture it's not necessarily original one, hundred percent. And maybe that's part of why it's hard when they translate to you to for the most part, you have to come up with something completely people who are really really good storytellers will be able to do. So across different mediums whether it's Tiktok whether it's you whether instagram weather's twitch I, think the shot from video especially the stuff on Tiktok it's what's the punchline what's the actual point of the video that makes it interesting and why it's so democratizing video creations you don't need to bring light to be a good tiktok crater. You literally just need your phone. Yeah. On Tiktok you get thirty seconds, you can record it with your phone you can have whatever quality of. Video and as a good story line, people will watch it and people shirt or if you're adding value to the viewers life. Young short videos are not just jokes I. Mean, I cringe when people say tiktok is a bunch of people dancing to music because I'm like you clearly have not use this thing. Right there's educational stuff on it. There's financial advice on Tiktok. There is stuff that teaches you how to cook. So short videos a really powerful form I think, and it's basically getting rid of the fluff that you don't need and delivering maximum value per second. Literally per second because you can lose the person after like three or four seconds of it's not good enough. To your point people talk just a fun lip synching at or dancing. APP. And it's not it's a place where he can learn anything you ever wanted to learn. Whether it's cars whether it's how to take photos how to model I've watched so many talk videos about videography tips and I phone tricks and all sorts of stuff, and it's just endless amounts of short form education

So give it a listen. Do something sweet for someone and posted on social media using the National Swedish Day. Hashtag. Today's gas is Travis Oester House. I met Travis last year at podcast movement. Travis does not have a podcast, but he has a podcast APP called re pod. Because I recommend podcast episodes in my newsletter and this podcast I'm always seeking out podcasts myself.

"We need to understand and we need to recognize that they saw themselves as terrorists. That's what they saw the violence as and we have to allow them to be what they were. We can't sanitize our history. Just it makes us feel more comfortable and happier with idolizing women who have committed incredibly violent and dangerous actions for us to have the rights. We have today when these acts of happen. Then how does kitty start to be treated at the hands of the authorities? Well she's been arrested in force-fed a number of times before the violence as so many of the suffragettes were and I think what few people have have really understood because we haven't talked about the real violence and horror. Is that what it really pushed them to? Was that this the process of force feeding and government torture was a huge moment in the radicalization of a lot of these women that push them towards the extreme violence of their acts at one point in one single sentencing. Kitty as force-fed two hundred and thirty two times in one single set of four months and it destroys a singing voice. And you know when you're reading kind of her firsthand accounts or any firsthand account of the experience forcefeeding. It is torturous together. And you just you always have to carry in your mind that the whole reason why was happening was because she wanted me to have the rights. I have today and we wouldn't have them without her. What's also going on at this? Time is the First World War and Kitty obviously of German extradiction. She's betrayed by somebody. Basically reported there's women start that she's a German spy. It's you can't you can ask for a better story than the life story of this credible woman because it just goes from kind of one amazing extreme to another and the joys of being a historian is you get this autobiography with this amazing tale in and you then spent years going off making sure. It's all true because you quite suspicious because how can be true and yet it is. It is all true. It's all there so kitty. Because of her German blood it turns out that someone from her past decides to seize on the moment to. We don't really know what her motivations were. I think she was probably just mad to send a letter to the Home Office proclaiming that Kitty is at suffragette and a German spy. Now by this point kitty has been in England for over half her life. She's lost any trace of her German accent. She Nagas speaks German. She has no German friends. No German family. She you know she has no connection to Germany whatsoever. It is the distant dream of a child immigrant. A memory yet. Of course the government sees on this opportunity to try and get rid of them most dangerous woman. I find this to sort of things that happen at once. Kitties already on the run underneath the cut in mouse act because this is the moment where the first world war is breaking out the suffragettes on the run. They don't know still from all of the things. The amnesty hasn't quite taken off the what's going to happen. So she's hiding from the place already and she his reports that they're searching for her under this accusation of being jammed spy and she's trying to figure out if she can get out of the country or what's going to happen whilst the government's investigating her and trying to piece together if they can actually throw her out of country and one of my favorite bits of archive was sitting in the National Archives in Q. Reading the government reports of this investigation which are all in the you kind of all drawn from an important to the bank. But the moment when they realize there's literally no way of being able to accuse her of being gems spy for because she she has. She isn't one and that kind of gut isn't and they're like there anyway. There's all this kind of little scribbles in the origin of like. Is there any way we can do anything we can get rid of? And they realized that they can't and they will also fear terribly that because she so influential and important in the suffrage movement that if they do trying to pull her that the this suffrage at will kick off and might even stop bombing and by that point per society cannot take a domestic campaign again but while they are concluding this. Kitty is being kind of. Hof escorted by the police who've now found her and by the suffragettes who are trying to rescue her to the Docks Liverpool and they managed to put her on a boat and sent it to America to just get her out of the country and keep us safe and she arrives shortly after that into New York whilst the wars breaking out and from that moment on her life is again changed forever and so she's she finds New York and eventually will become involved. Margaret Sanger and the organization that becomes planned parenthood and she remains involved in activism for large parts of life. I WANNA pass over that period of time. It's a major part of a libraries. Want to get to like where she ends up. Where does where DOES KITTY END UP? After this what says she becomes a hugely eventual. Part of Margaret Sanger's control movement working between the US and the UK until really had death as birth control activist and kind of sneaking into churches. Live leaving bombs. She's leaving birth control pamphlets which I just love disrupting society wherever she can but she ends up back in New York in her. Seventy s in the forties and. She sits down to write autobiography because she realizes that won't her? Life is unique and yet shared then needs to be a record of it. She desperately wants people to know who she was. And the role. She played as well as all these amazing women around her and so she kind of sets down to kind of write it all out and and leave it to everyone and then dies as we're in the middle of Kennedy going into the Second World War and I really I when I was writing the book. I really struggled with that moment because I had no happy ending. Inequity dies surrounded by friends and family. But she's never married she's never had children. There's no record part from her words of life and who she was and I desperately wanted to find a way to have a positive ending I. I couldn't because everything that had happened to her. You Know Society hasn't changed and I was writing this in kind of August. September of last year thinking. Nothing's changed and thinking of my own life and thinking over the experiences of very good friends of mine and being angry and frustrated that nothing had changed. World is not different and ISO sitting down to chapter. Ten metoo happened and it was insane and I had to write to my publisher and Guy. Please can you. Can you just give me a couple more weeks so I can watch this happen because for the first time it feels like we might finally one hundred years after? Kitty was fighting for the same thing. An actress fighting against sexual harassment. Trying to change her world we might fund be getting somewhere and I was very lucky. They gave me the chance to watch it. Come out and say the whole of the last chapter is capturing that moment of history as it was happening which was an incredible thing to be able to do as a historian to start with. Mary wollstonecraft to tell US AMAZING. Life and then of Kitty Marian and then capture a moment of our own social revolution. The very end. I still can't get over that. That is what happens that I was there at that moment. And that is is how ended and it finally gave me a not so much a happy ending but a hopeful ending the buck because we should have one we should. I get really angry when all we do is portray women in the past victims. Because they're not they're so strong and they're so determined to change the world for the better and often that gets lost in kind of stories of just slowly of abuse or just of death or the end or an ending. That isn't quite what you want so to be able to end the burke today with where we are now felt incredibly powerful. Now I was gonna say changing the subject. Of course it's not really changing the subject. I'm not sure yet when this is actually going to broadcast but at the moment that we're recording it over the best. You've started a bit of a movement on the twitter. I think it would be very proud but I just home so last week. The Boston Globe and Mail decided that it was going to remove title of doctor from its interviews from anyone who wasn't a medical doctor and of course. I have quite an iron in the fire of this because I have I am Dr Edward L. and I work in the press. I work as a public expert. You know I do. Tv AND RADIO. The whole point having hd is so that people know. When I right? When I talk when you him speaking I'm doing it with authority. I know I'm talking about. I am not going to lie to you. I am telling you what the years of my career and research have shown me about our past and I I really do resent massively the world. We're in at the moment. Where style guides are removing expertise from the public domain? What is the point of journalists coming to speak to me my expertise if they are not going to acknowledge that because how else people know who to trust so I get very wound up very angry about this and I saw was happening online and I just added of my voice too many voices of academics talking about how that was wrong and so stating that I had my you know I am not ms? Oh Mrs I am Dr Andrew Del. That's my title and I've earned my authority and that's what I want to be referred to and did quite well and a lot of people kind of a lot of women kind of react to this and then almost instantly with sending that out a man slid into my mentions to say I think. What you've said is legitimately modest right. That's ridiculous because working on sexual culture we sexual MARCUS TO REMOVE. Women's voices from the domain. All the time I've been told I'm vulgar immodest I need to learn humility simply stating that in a public setting. If you're talking about my expertise you should state my title to show. I have expertise and I just sent off a Hashtag which I made this modest women as kind of an afterthought and over the next forty eight hours I had ten thousand ten thousand new followers and Hashtag went completely viral and in most insane an incredible way and he we all six days later and it hasn't stopped on. Twitter is full of absolute incredible women adding their titles to their handles to take home of the authority that they have. And I think that's an incredibly powerful and amazing thing you know so many kind of one of the awful things about it with so many women coming to me and saying I have I have my title but I never use it or I always downplay it because it felt like I was bragging and A. PhD. Is Plenty hard work? We work really hard as anyone does to add something original to the world around us to be part to show our case our expertise show why we know what we're talking about and yet women and solely women consistently felt that they should restrict to when they use it to say the simple moment where they might give a talk or lecture which is ridiculous because when women's marriage you don't call her ms time unless you ask you to refer to her as Mrs. It's because it is simply.

Fern is also the author of death in ten minutes. Kitty Marian activists arsonist sopher jet which we're going to be talking about today Fan. Welcome to little. Thank you very much. This is the story of Kitty Marion. As a says on the cover and but for contacts you start looking at Mary Wollstonecraft. Unlike how some days were perhaps a bit radical for the feminists that came later in this era in the early twentieth century. So tell us why you wanted to start with. It's not so much. Just her ideas. It's also her life. You know we have so we struggle so much with women who do not fit a certain category were just supposed to be well married virtuous and thinking things and Mary. Wollstonecraft wasn't like that a tool. Shijo number of children out of wedlock and I was fascinated as to why this woman who was so influential in her time and so powerful in her time wasn't used by the Victorian period where I focused as I kind of a stepping stone to start off a really powerful feminist revolution. Because she wasn't an I was kind of investigating three and I realized that it's it's down to her life. It's to the fact that she did have lovers. And she did have children out of wedlock that Victorian feminists or at least the kind of dominant Victorian at that time really struggled with. And it's a very personal reaction. I think to kind of the world where in today I I tend to use my history to or at least my research to try and understand better why we have the world we have now why we have so many problems with sex why we have so many problems with women and going back over. The last hundred and fifty years is really what gives me an answer to that 'cause remarry and when did you first come across her? So I was working in the archives at the Museum of London I was doing research for my PhD. And I was researching Victoria kind of nineteenth century women in the music holes and kind of musical in general. Because that's what I was. Fascinated in my family were trick cyclists and the nineteen eighteen ninety s until the nineteen thirties. And so I grew up with a lot of stories about that and a little photographs. And I found that time really fascinating. And I'd always been told and I think a lot of people have the misconception. That music hall is own kind of knees up mother Brown and very stereotypically male and not a good place for women and my family were a troupe of predominantly female trick cyclists so. I already had this kind of background. Knowledge that the world wasn't quite what history had told us it was and I was fascinated by that and I was sitting in the Museum of London. Archive and the amazing curators. There who's wonderful woman? Go Beverly Kirk said Fern. I think your you're GonNa really likes something. I've got this unpublished autobiography of musical artist. That I think you're gonNA like but just see no she was also suffragette and I kind of massively roll my eyes at that point because I didn't want in that very millennial kind of Oh I know what my rights are. It doesn't matter to me anymore. I didn't want to fool into the trap of studying suffrage because that feels like if you're a female historian the first thing people assume about you as you're going to be doing gender studies or you're going to be doing suffrage. It's like the biggest kind of assumption female historians face and I find that very frustrating because we have incredible political and military historians. Who HAVE FEMALE. And they never seem to get the airtime will the exposure that male historians do so. I. I was very kind of anti being painted into a box. But bear gave me this kind of typed manuscript pages and I remember sitting down and opening up and kind of starting to read and within five pages on your wasn't GonNa leave because this absolutely incredible voice just leapt off the page and told me things I never knew I had no comprehension of about women about sex and about the fight for the vote and I realized very quickly that if I didn't know a someone who is studying history no one knew like the public don't know and that's the purpose of history for me and the purpose of being a historian making sure everyone has access to the research we do from this was unpublished most affair which you use in the books so how much of that is due to tight bound volumes in the Museum of London and Kitty left copies to the Museum of London to the women's library and to the New York Public Library where which is where she to life which is in New York in America. And it's kind of a bow. It's kind of two volumes. That are about three to four inches. Thick of this typed manuscript. And I just used to sit with it and just read and read and read and read these incredible firsthand accounts of life in the music. Halls and life is a suffragette bomber and then life is a birth control actors in the stories and and people and an a memory that as historians you dream of finding you dream of finding voice like this from the post that is so complete and tells you everything about the world they are and not just how they feel but how the people around them feel and I knew in that moment from kind of the I read that I had to spend the next two years of my life finding away to get her into print because everyone should know and so she's presently all those moments of history that you just almost movements that you just mentioned also of course I guess we could say to begin with to is also something of a minor celebrity. Why has she been forgotten? I this is a question I kept coming back to. You and I was really struggling to understand as a young researcher and in the end I found two reasons one. The suffrage s themselves really in the nineteen twenties with the connection some suffrage as kind of the main ones to the connection to you. Saxon Birth Control that was seen as of actually an anti feminist thing as it had been throughout the nineteenth century. Which is another thing that. I uncovered in death in ten minutes that I was fascinated by and so that kind of tainted I think her memory secondly she was exposing the stories of the bombers is that in the Nineteen Thirties. The surviving suffragettes did not want exposed. And when she sent her autobiography to them to be conserved to be protected it got put away and hidden and historians. You came off to that. Can only really go on the archive that they given. And if something has been hidden way it's not surprising that it hasn't come to light because we're talking about history that is ninety years old you know. We've only had democracy in England since nineteen twenty eight as less than ninety years so it is hardly surprising that we are finding so many new things now and yet to some people. It is a total shock that this has been hidden on this husband forgotten. It's kind of my mission where this Birkin with a lot of their kind of public idea to change people's minds. Let's talk about her early life. Because there's a couple of incidents that happened to her before she's involved in the self-rule movement particularly the acute influence on. You know home how she thinks going forward. She actually comes from ears initially. Yeah I think this is one of the things like under love Kitty. She was a gem child immigrant. She came here when she was fifteen years. Old came here completely alone because her her uncle had realized that her father was being incredibly abusive. We believe sexually IDA believe sexually abusive. 'cause he doesn't talk about that at all but physically abusive incredibly physically and emotionally abusive. And I think her uncle removed from that situation at the moment where potentially that violence could have become far worse and get far more towards the woman she was becoming and e basically packs are onto a boat with no warning and her to an aunt. Who's living WHO's emigrated far earlier and is living with her husband in Just outside the east end in London and Katie arrives in England. Kind of at the age of fifteen this kind of beautiful redhead young girl who has no idea of what the country is that she's come to know ability to speak English and she's kind of she was sort of coming into Liverpool Street and hearing English being spoken and thinking my God I am never ever going to get a handle on this language because just noise but she's still kind of the next few years. She teaches herself. English through deadwood deck journals which are kind like penny dreadful American stories of the wild west and her nieces and nephews Kind of schoolbooks and just ping up snatches in the street. And she has a few kind of accidents where she's picked up say swearwords language and she sorta gaily greets a neighbor or her aunt with this with this kind of swearword thinking that is just an everyday term. Says she's go to learning. She's learning about language and she's leading England and by the age of nineteen. She knows more than anything. What she really wants to do is be on the stage and it causes a lot of problems with her aunt's family. This idea that to be an actress is disrespectful and women who want to do that Bad and wrong. But she's determined now over through this book there are residences things that are going on today and the content of the feminist movement today and so of course kitties. You want to get into the music. All she's just start now so she leads an agent says she has a meeting with this guy. What happens Says she goes. She's very naive. And she's nineteen years old and she goes for her first agent and she's really excited and it's an agency on York Street. Just fortunately road just down by Woodley station I. It goes very well. The meetings fantastic. It's the offices full of acts and bustle and noise and she comes out kind of thinking. My God my life is made. I end zone catch. Is that the contract isn't ready quiet. Then and she needs come back the next day at five pm and I can remember reading that in the archive and kind of my heart sinking. Because I am I was by that point in my mid twenty s and had had enough experience with the world to recognize a trap when you see one and my heart just sank and.

"You think I'm going to see him again? He's not GonNa want me and it was the first time I told my parents that I'd be most comfortable if which is didn't talk for a while but then wasn't because I was angry at them but it wasn't because it was hurting me. I needed to heal before I could listen to what they had to say. Because I didn't WanNa hear what they had to say. It's very difficult to reject Something that's so well meant and so lovingly meant to admit that it's not doing you any good Jamie's mother never contacts Oliver again. He doesn't go to the funeral he never receives any Jamie's belongings. Their relationship is just gone. You're felt like I played with fire that I've been burned and that now I wasn't allowed to complain about it because I had been warned as much as I thought that. I wasn't deserving of the relationship or this connection now I wasn't allowed to grieve about it either. Oliver was back at work just a few days. After Jamie died in just a few weeks after their relationship had finally become official I was completely just. Shaken only shared it with my salon manager and another hairstyle site connected with really well. What got me through it was. I'm just GonNa stay silent about this. I need to keep it to myself. I'm GONNA go home. I'm going to drink a bottle of wine and I'm just going to get over it by myself.

"Alone grieving a man that nobody really knew he loved even his really good friends. You know when you're in a relationship and he don't really know where it's going and you don't really know what the outcome is going to be any. Don't really you know you don't necessarily want to put yourself out there and be like guess let I am with this great guy and we love each other because what if it doesn't work out and I think that it was the mind space I was in I didn't want to Want to ruin it. I didn't want to jinx at In any other circumstance says if Oliver had lost a boyfriend of many years one who had met all of his friends one. He had a photo of on a station at work. If he lost a wife a fiance. The grief industrial complex would roar to life. There would be cards. Leaves of absence from work a memorial for him to plan friends making sure he wasn't alone but this thing disquiet thing he's lost. His own is now a quiet ache. A quiet grief to share it with his family means coming out to them to share it with his friends means trying to catch them up on years and years of slow burning loved that just finally burst into flame but Oliver Tries. His parents are still in Switzerland too far to come scoop him up from the floor and hold him and let him weep and too far to physically turn a cold shoulder so oliver emails his father and he tells him everything about. Jamie and their relationship about Jamie's death of course we're Mormon so we don't swear but I remember the very last sentence I wrote that email was. I'm hurting so fucking bad. Oliver does not know what kind of replied to expect. He's just fed his father to huge pieces of information that he's gay and that he's grieving. It takes a few days to hear back from his dad. Oliver opens the email. There's no anger but there's no comfort either. It was this Very Mormon sort of. You're gonNA see him again. He is in a better place now. His his challenges are taken away. I forget the words they used but it was sort of along those lines and And the more was reading this. The more was heartbroken because I knew it came from a very very loving space. A very loving intention was hurting me. It was hurting me too. I knew that when these said that Jamie was freed of all his challenges that in their Mormon way they were saying Jamie's no longer gay and I was thinking he's dead again. Do.

Jamie and his friends or going out to a house on Long Island before Jamie flies out to Utah to see his family. Oliver can't get time off work so he tells Jamie. Go with your friends. I'll see you when you get back from Utah. He even books trip up to Boston. The first trip where he'd efficiently see his official boyfriend. Jamie heads off to Long Island and Oliver goes back to his apartment. I just fell to my Inflated Mattress and that moment of realization that everything that I thought would never happen to me is happening to me now. I was so happy I started crying and it didn't make sense like why am I crying? If everything that I want to happen is happening I went back to work. and I didn't tell anyone yet. I didn't know I didn't know how to process it really. I didn't I don't know what to do with it. It was so foreign to me. It was so new to me. It was so strange. I didn't know what to do with it and a few days later. Two three days later Jimmy called My phone I was at work so I he left a message and he said he was at the airport flying to Utah and the message said he was so happy that he'd seen me in that we have been able to be open more each other and sort of like make decisions. I forget exactly what words he used but he said that you would see me soon. A few days pass an oliver is missing Jamie. Usually he tries not to reach out to him when he's with his family. But hate this boyfriend now so on his way home from work he calls him. He calls his boyfriend has mother answered and she knew who I was. Jamie's mother had never met Oliver but she told him. We've heard so much about you in the past few days. Which wow that feels amazing. It's real older. Just didn't want to interrupt family time I was I would call back later. And if she could tell Jamie I called and the phone one silent and she said he passed away this morning Jamie had suffered epileptic seizure. He'd been rushed to the hospital. He'd been in a coma and he didn't wake up Oliver's shocked genie's.

"Beautiful relationship. It's such an intense emotional relationship. How at all do you define it or not define it and and what is Jamie to you? Well he was or is what I firmly believed throughout my Mormon mission and beyond. He is what I thought would never happen to me. It's like I mean as stupid as it sounds he was. He was the miracle that I thought I would never be allowed to experience. And when something like that happens to you I'm assuming you sort of shouted on the rooftops. You're so excited you WanNa talk about it and tell everyone all my friends would tend to like. Oh I just got this new girlfriend. I'm so excited or oh I just got engaged. And let's go shopping for the wedding list and whatever but to me. It was like this. I always had to sort of keep it very quiet and I think it sort of what may Jamie more meaningful it was. I mean again. I always go back to show tunes. Because that's an but there is a show tune that Liza Minelli things and The lyrics from the song are when it all comes through. It's a quiet thing and when everyone was shouting how they were seeing someone that they got engaged that well everything's turning out for them for me. Jamie was quiet thing. A quiet thing is so beautiful. Something you keep just for yourself. But it's quiet for another reason to be as Oliver's parents still don't know about Jamie and Jamie's parents know Jamie is seeing someone but Jamie was like we'll oliver and I had a bottle of wine at his house and we just cut it on the couch watching a movie and I was just like Jamie shut up like can you. Just tell your mom. I hung out over his house. That's enough that's all the information she needs. But Jamie sort of Always felt that need to sort of like. I'm going to provoke them. It's two thousand six now and Jamie. Oliver have known each other for three years. Oliver has graduated from college and he enrolled in beauty school so he can support himself as a stylist when he eventually moved to New York City. But for now he's still in. Utah and it's Christmas and Oliver can't get time off of beauty school to visit his parents. In Switzerland I ended UP BEING STUCK IN UTAH My last Christmas of beauty school and I couldn't I normally would have gone to be with my family in Europe But I was stuck at home and Is the first Christmas except for the? Christmas is on my mission where I was going to be by myself and it was very sad about it and I I tried to think of things to do in whatever and Jamie said that he was going to be visiting his parents and he was going to talk to them and He talked to his parents and he said well. Oliver is going to be all alone for Christmas. Can invite him over and his parents said No. Your siblings are going to be here. All your nieces and nephews are going to be here as going to be too awkward into strange. No we're just not okay with that and that started this argument with well. We're not making out on the couch. This is someone who doesn't have a place to go for Christmas can. Can you come over? And His parents insisted no. It's not going to happen and And I understood. It's not personal. Because they don't know Oliver so Oliver Understood. The Jamie did not. Jamie was upset. Jamie said that well if If Oliver is not welcome here that I'm not going to be here either. And he came to my apartment in Utah. We made made some dinner. We went to a movie that we both didn't like and it was fun because got the joke about it and he spend Christmas Day with me and again it was one of those magical moments were like. Someone loves me enough to do that for me. And for most people. It sounds like something so normal. I mean for my siblings. Maybe it sounds normal for their for their Spouses but for me which is so special. It was just so like it was just so unique. And so valuable. Their relationship is like this big meaningful displays of love and then time apart. They still live in different cities. A few months later Oliver was done with beauty school and moved to New York City to pursue his dream. Jamie was still working in Boston and they were still in touch. They talk to the emailed. They see each other when they can and they also see other people. I mean there was such a real relationship that I was able to tell him like. Oh well I met this guy and I went on a date with him and be able to tell him the details or like this is what we did and this is how it ended and there were a few people that I went out with where it didn't end the way I wanted it to end and I was heartbroken so to say and I was able to call j. knee and tell him. Yeah so I went out with this guy and I'm really disappointed because I really liked him and it didn't work out and Jamie always said well didn't didn't work out because this guy wasn't me and someday we'll be me and it was just the most healing words the most soothing words and how going through life's disappointments and rejections. He just knew how to take it away In December two thousand seven. It's Christmas time again. Oliver is in New York. Jamie is in Boston for the holiday but he tells Oliver that he's coming to New York City for new years and he wants to spend it with Oliver. He wants Oliver to come out with all Jamie's friends and celebrate the New Year. Oliver hates new years but he loves Jamie so he says yes. I will go out on the most annoying night of the year for you at this restaurant and his friends and we had just really great time. Just catching up looked so gorgeous. He was wearing white button-down shirt and I always told him like. Oh we should let me cut. Your hair would be cuter if it's a little shorter year little more style this way and he never did. Let me and again. This is where it goes back into type. It's like oh I wish is haircut. Were different but I remember because it was him. I just I loved his haircut. They passed some Bubbly around midnight and Jeannie hated sparkling wine. He was actually a very snobbish red wine drinker and he poured it into my glass and he was saying like. I know you like it. I hate it you can have. It was shortly before midnight. He recalled the time when we were driving in my car. That was playing the song by Jason Robert Brown the next ten minutes and he said.

"They go on now gone to dates every weekend. The they do all that but this is the first time that it happened for me. Jamie has to leave in a few days. Sell the two of them. Take another hike. They make out on a mountaintop. And then it's time for Jamie to leave town. I thought well this is how it always goes. it's going to be over not going to see him again in whatever and I hugged him and we held each other and he said we'll see each other again. This is not. This is not the end. Their relationship moves onto email tons and tons of emails. The kind so special. That even seeing that name in your inbox feels like receiving presently. You don't want to open it right away because then that feeling will be over. Oliver is still in school. And Jamie who was just four years. Older is working. They see each other. When Jamie COMES TO VISIT HIS FAMILY IN UTAH? But only privately Jamie's family knows about Oliver but they prefer that the relationship private an Oliver's family has no idea about Jamie. We always didn't contact in the beautiful thing about the relationship was that we could go months without speaking but when we spoke again it was like we'd never lost touch and we weren't losing touch was just we were just living our lives and we were busy. There was one time we We went for a drive and I was playing of course Castro court broadcast recordings in my car. Because it's my car and I choose and I was playing.

"And normal that. I didn't I didn't care I didn't care because it just so much felt like it didn't matter like it was just going to be what it's going to be and so we went and drove in the Canyon and We parked somewhere With a beautiful view and he kissed me and I was just perfect and we cast for five hours. I think it was. I mean. We didn't KISS FOR FIVE HOURS. Straits but Again it was this thing with like. Let's take a break and just hold each other or let's just talk for you.

Oh Shit I have to go to class so I went inside and shower and changed in got dressed and went into class and I was so tired but I just felt so happy and I felt so happy because it was something that I had never experienced before but I felt so stupid because this is what my roommates do all the time..

"Back and Jamie and Oliver are finally going to meet up. They've traded secrets and dreams. They've stayed up late on the phone talking about life. They've exchanged countless emails. And they've missed each other on two continents and now they're back in the same orbit. They can an absolutely will meet in real life at starbucks. Which again was like a forbidden place to go because Mormons don't drink coffee and I drifted the starbucks. And I'm like so scared because like oh my gosh. I'm walking into a starbucks and I'm a Byu student. And whatever and Has the first time I saw him. He was sitting at a table in the corner. And a you're gorgeous and I was so and and I was so nervous and this is like you. Have you have to imagine like at this point. I'm a twelve thirteen year old teenager going through the motions of dating for the first time and I sat down and I ordered a mint tea because I was a law abiding. Byu student so I had my My herbal tea and I sat there and and I thought we'll have plenty of time. Whatever and we ended up talking the entire day I skipped my voice lesson. I skipped everything the entire there. I know the entire day I sat there talking with him and just exchanging and it was. It was so effortless that there was no like. Oh well okay. I don't know where to go next. I don't know what to say next. And sometimes there was silence or pauses but those positive didn't feel uncomfortable. It was just like all right. Let's be quiet for a minute or two. And it didn't matter and I remember the sweetest thing that I like. The first physical contact I had with him. I was holding my Mint Tea Cup and he grabbed my finger and held my finger. Just like I guess someone would hold someone's hand but he just held my finger and he said I'd really like to see you again. I wish I could describe it. And it wasn't like again. It was so it wasn't even like he grabbed my hand. He literally grabbed my index finger and held. Its between his fingers and I wish I could explain what it feels like pets one of those things. You only know what it feels like actually happens to you the best way. I can describe it as I hope it happens to you. Some time and that you'll feel it you'll know what it feels like Oliver.

We just wanted to see a movie so here we are. This is my friend so and so and we're at him so it's difficult to say. Oh Yeah I went on dates. But they weren't dates. They weren't. They weren't what other people were experiencing as dates. They were just a fake dates. It was just kind of me trying to make up for not being able to date The school year ends and that summer Oliver Heads to Europe to visit his parents who live in Switzerland. I was at my boring office job. You know as a summer job and I thought well I'm I'm going to get back on that website and see well. Does it work here? Are People around here. And so I've logged on to my account and whatever and the first thing that flashes up is that Jamie was nearby nearby as in nearby Switzerland. What I ask you are the chances can this be real and so I- messaging was like Whoa wait. I know you from Utah. I'm in Switzerland. What are you doing so close by? And he told me that he had Taken a himself taking a summer job Teaching a a youth camp teaching English and And the and and he liked to travel a lot and he actually spoke several languages as well which is the thing we had in common and It was like well. I'm I'm close by and by close by it. Wasn't you know within miles? But it was the next a close by town in France. Close to Geneva and I thought this is just crazy. Like oh my gosh like how? How weird that I meet you in Utah Online? But now I'm across an ocean and year here it's bonkers it's romantic. It is time to take this relationship to the next level. The two of them exchanged phone numbers and eventually they connect That was the first time I heard his voice soon. Just melting like it was so soothing and it wasn't even just his voice was the way he expressed himself the way. He talked the pace at which he talked It was just. It was so great. What did you talk on the phone about? How long did you talk? It was just like we talked about our growing up Mormon We talked about Our experiences and how different were my experience was that was always a very good. Mormon kid that I always went by the rules and did everything. And he told me about his story that he actually realized very early on that mormonism wasn't for him and that he left But he rebelled against the Mormon Church very early on and which created tension his family so again. It was like this. Oh we have so much in common and yet it's so different Jamie Oliver spend hours on the phone but they never meet up their relatively close but not really close. They're just far enough to make it impossible for the two of them to actually get together with their jobs and their lives. So it's a phone relationship until Jamie goes to Eastern Europe and they lose touch again. The summer ends and Oliver goes back to school and a few months into the school year. I was feeling a little. You know like I just wanted a little bit of human connection and so I- log back on and put my location in and again it flashes. Jamie is.

"Theater program is where Oliver comes alive. He's doing what he loves even if he's far from being loved far from having a love of his own remember remember the first time I I. It was after an audition and I needed a ride home. Didn't have a car at the time and This guy from the audition gave me a ride home. And we had a nice little chat and whatever and he was very sort of like this extroverts. Super Guy Guy like whatever. He actually looked like a clean Mormon but he just had like this you know very extroverted personality which is Great. You know good for him. Living in Utah having the courage to be that way and We we pulled up in my parking lot at my apartment and we kept talking for a little bit and and that's when he said we'll Oliver Year you're gay right and it was the first time admitted like I said it out loud. Yeah I'm gay and it was like this weight was lifted off me and at the same time as the way it was lifted off me. Like I'm being honest about who I am. Another weight was put on me because I wasn't allowed to be gay and the thing is as an actor. You you have to. You have to be honest with yourself. You can't actually one of my acting teachers said you have to You have to always meet yourself where you are in order to portray whatever needs portray. It's not gonNA be possible until you're honest with yourself like this is who I am. This is where I'm at. This is what I feel and from here. I'M GONNA go on and be whatever I need to be on stage so oliver starts to be honest with himself. He's not going to pretend that he isn't a full person. A person who wants love and connection the year is two thousand and three and facebook is not a thing. Smartphones AREN'T IN OUR POCKETS. So Oliver goes to the computer and he gets online and kills to some website. That's about making friends was gay but it was not grinder but it was But it was very Premature facebook thing You were allowed to have nine pictures on your profile They had to be clean so like it wasn't it definitely wasn't grinder And the profile was very sort of bullet points. You enter your name your age. Your whatever your location. Oliver enters his location. And I was like Oh look at all the Byu music dance theatre students on here and the thing is it was saved because you really were an outing yourself but you you were just on their. You were trying to create connections. Oliver wanted connections outside of his university and his faith and after a few days he finds it so The way this website worked is that you were like it. Showed you okay this person. You know this person because you have this connection with this person so this person knows this person who knows you kind of thing. And that's when I saw Jamie's profile Jamie's beautiful dark gorgeous hair beautiful eyes. Oliver sent me a message and Jamie replies and he said that he was.

"Ooh I'm Nora mcnerney and this is terrible things for asking in this family. Love a love story and we love a story and every grief story is a love story. You don't grieve what you don't love but for now this is a love story and it starts in my favorite place for Love Story to start the point where you're sure you just cannot will not could not possibly ever find love. That's exactly where Oliver was his Sophomore Year of college. I know his Sophomore Year of college. Really that was when Oliver was sure he would never find love. Sounds a little dramatic but at this point? Oliver has never dated. He has never kissed anyone and the people he goes to college with our pairing up and maybe even mating for life. He goes to a conservative college filled with people who share his Mormon faith. It's absolutely not weird for him to feel like by now he should have found his big true love. I saw two of my siblings. Meet their Well my brother met his wife. My sister met her husband I saw get married. I saw my roommate's Mccall remains Fall in love and Or have crushes or whatever and go on dates and My missionary companions from my more mission. I was starting to get wedding invitations. I started going to weddings and it sent me into like this. I know this. I guess what I would call depression. But you know you go through these steps of you know and so after the mission for quote Unquote Normal People After the mission you get married you have children. You know you have your corporate job you pay for orthodontists and whatever you know but those steps don't apply to Oliver. Oliver has completed one year of college and his mission trip where he traveled to the Netherlands to spread the word of mormonism and on that mission. He had realization not that he's gay. He's known that forever. I've always been very honest about my identity or about a not to other people but to myself as like I know like men. I know I'm attracted to men and I always thought well if God is the Mormon God. This is going to be taken away from me. And I'M GONNA be okay and there was on my mission when I sort of had this moment like this lightbulb. Going up where I realized this is not going to go away and I accepted it. I was like you know this is this is just who I am. And so on my mission. Add this moment where I realized that of all the checklist steps that you go through a Mormon. This is the end of it. I'm going to go home for my mission and I'm not going to do anything else that other people do. And at the time it didn't realize how obedient I would remain or whatever and since I was still at Byu to remain obedient because you have to abide by their code of conduct abiding by the Code meant going back to. Byu finishing his degree going to church and it meant not dating. Men Not expressing that attraction. Oliver's family doesn't know that he's gay.

"In the museum of london and kitty left copies to the museum of london to the women's library and to the new york public library where which is why she ended her life which is in new york in america and it's kind of about it's kind of two volumes that are about three four inches thick of this typed manuscript and i just used to sit with it and just read and read and read and read all these incredible firsthand accounts of life in the music halls and life is a suffragette bomber and then life is a birth control act with the stories and and people and on a memory that as historians you dream of finding you dream of finding a voice like this from the post that is so complete and tells you everything about the world they are in not just how they feel but how the people around them feel and i knew in that moment from kind of the i read that i had to spend the next two years of my life finding a way to get her into print because everyone should know and so she's presently all those moments of history that you just those movements that you just mentioned also of course i guess we could say to begin with to his also something of a minor celebrity why has she been forgotten i this is a question i kept coming back to and i was really struggling to understand as a young researcher and in the end i found two reasons one the suffrage s themselves really struggled in the nineteen twenties with the connection some suffer just kind of the main ones to the connection to your sex and birth control that was seen as ev actually an anti feminist thing as it had been throughout the nineteenth century which is another thing i uncovered in death in ten minutes that i was fascinated by and so that kind of tainted i think how memory secondly she was exposing the stories of the bomas that in the nineteen thirties the surviving suffragettes did not want exposed and when she sent her autobiography to them to be conserved to be protected it got put away and hidden and historians who came off to that can only really go on the archive that they give him and if something has been hidden away it's not surprising that it hasn't come tonight because we're talking about history that is ninety years old you know we've only had democracy in england since nineteen twenty eight as less than those ninety years so it is hardly surprising that we are finding so many new things now and yet to some people i it is a total shock that this has been hidden on this husband forgotten it's kind of my mission where this book and with a lot of the kind of public stuff that i do to change people's minds let's talk about her early life because there's a couple of incidents that happened before she was involved in the suffrage movement particularly the a huge influence on her house she thinks going forward so she'd actually comes from germany irish initially yeah i think this is one of the things i never loved that kitty she was a gem child immigrant she came here when she was fifteen years old can hear completely alone because her uncle had realized that her father was being incredibly abusive we don't believe sexually ida believe sexually abusive because he doesn't talk about that at all but physically abusive incredibly physically and emotionally abusive and i think her uncle removed her from that situation at the moment where potentially that violence could have become far worse and geared for more towards the woman she was becoming and e basically packs her onto a boat with no warning and sends her to an aunt who's living who's emigrated far earlier in his living with her husband in just outside east end in london and getty arrives in england kind of at.
