State in the northeastern United States
Sen. Chris Murphy caught the political bug early; he was first elected to the Connecticut state legislature at age 25 while still in law school. He eventually served three terms as a US Congressman before being elected to the US Senate in 2012. Shortly before his term began, he became an outspoken advocate for gun reform after a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at his district's Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012. Sen. Murphy joined David to talk about how Sandy Hook refocused his political career, the new gun safety legislation he helped usher through Congress, what he sees as the politicization of the Supreme Court, why he hopes voters begin paying attention to Senate procedure, and his belief that Sen. Mitch McConnell wants to be part of the paradigm shift on preventing gun violence. To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
Nestled deep in Litchfield Hills, Connecticut, a 1790 farmhouse overlooks the epicenter of a paranormal crossroads. The family that resides there regularly encounters its own ancestors, as well as strangers - human and nonhuman - who seemingly occupy the same physical space in parallel worlds. When ghost hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren investigated, they dubbed it "Ghost Central".When William J. Hall visited the house, family member Donna Fillie showed him her journal of the paranormal activity she's experienced there over the years. Here is Donna's diary spanning five decades of uncanny occurrences, supplemented with background information provided by Hall. It tells of notes from old friends who insist they didn't deliver them; a grandson playing with an invisible - but very real - friend; and Donna awakening to phenomena at precisely 12:42 a.m. - an eerie correspondence to her house number, 1242.This compelling work includes many other kinds of inexplicable incidents that frequently occur in this otherwise normal area of Connecticut, which some believe is also the site of a secret military base.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/houseofmysteryradio.

It's officially official now - I'm engaged, and the contract has been signed on the beautiful Connecticut house with 15 acres! My husband has now finally seen it and thinks that it is spectacular. The place definitely ticks all the boxes, but now I'm in this phase where I have cold feet. Did we make the right decision, or am I suffering from a typical case of ‘house fomo'? I'm trying to squash those thoughts, especially by getting rid of all communication with real estate agents in both areas we were looking to buy and getting rid of notifications about new listings online. I am avoiding buyer's remorse at all costs, and things are starting to get exciting now! However, I am a bit nervous because we closed on our current house on June 25th and move into our new home on August 17th. That leaves us with a considerable gap, and I can solve that problem, except there is one bigger issue. I have fully designed the new space, taken measurements, and have everything listed out, but nowhere to ship items. I'm in limbo between both spaces for now, so let's jump into answering some of our questions from the mailbag. This episode, I answer questions about… [6:39] Narrowing down a new style for a hallway (Nicola) [17:27] Recent move into a rental home space that needs more style (Erin) To see the accompanying pictures, make sure you head over to affordableinteriordesign.com/links and check out the YouTube channel or our social media pages.

How does craft deepen your understanding of your history, your community, or yourself? And how can predominantly-white craft spaces better welcome diverse experiences?Textile artist and printmaker Jen Hewett threads the needle on these questions in her latest book, This Long Thread: Women of Color on Craft, Community and Connection. The book includes interviews with 19 fiber artists, and surveys hundreds of creators of color, all of whom draw on their relationship with making. This hour, we hear from Hewett – and briefly, from writer Mia Nakaji Monnier.Plus, Susi Ryan is an author and social justice activist from Connecticut who co-founded the quilt guild, Sisters In Stitches Joined By The Cloth. Ryan recently wrote a piece about how craft connects her to her ancestors, titled "Cloth Has Given Me A Voice," for Mass Humanities' We, Too, Are America series. She says, "Cloth has given me a voice to recall the memory of my enslaved ancestors."Untitled" The quilts that I create visually depict and document in cloth the life journeys of my family, my ancestors, and the many others who lived through the African diaspora," Ryan writes. "The stories my quilts tell allow me to ease into uncomfortable conversations about such critical issues as racism, social and medical justice, prison reform, African American history and literature, farm, food and housing sustainability, climate change, women's rights, religion, politics, and human trafficking, that sadly still exists today."

Part One of Two. ***** Kimberly Hobbs Welcome to Empowering Lives with Purpose. And I'm your host, Kimberly Hobbs. I am the founder of Women World Leaders. We are so grateful that you've joined us today on empowering lives with purpose. And that is our hope today ladies that we get to empower you and encourage you to walk and that beautiful purpose that God has just for you. And one of our guests today that is wanting to just pour in some encouragement to you is our guest Robin Kirby Gatto. Welcome, Robin. Robin Kirby Gatto Thank you. I am super excited, and I cannot wait to see what the Spirit of the Lord does. Kimberly, God bless you. Kimberly Hobbs Oh, God bless you. Ladies. Today we are in for a great topic. Today we're talking about deliverance. And there are so many things as we think about our lives, whether God has delivered you from something already, something that has held you captive or shackled. That feeling of not being free. While today we want to talk about what that freedom feels like. And we want all of us to be able to be able to experience that true freedom that comes through Jesus Christ our Lord. So that's what we're going to talk about in our podcast today. And ladies, God tells us in His Word, that every believer has received grace gifts, so use them to serve one another as faithful stewards of the many color tapestries of God's grace. That's First Peter 410. So we've all received different gifts. And today's guest today Robin is so amazing, and I just being able to get to know her as a woman of God. God truly has entrusted her with beautiful gifts. And I believe as she starts to speak, you're gonna hear about what God has entrusted her with. So we believe each of you have a purpose, ladies. And it's our hope today that through listening to this podcast, you're going to hear a little bit about what your purpose might be. Ask God for that right now as we begin this podcast today, I want to share a little bit about who Robin Kirby Gatto is before we get going. She is a prolific author with a Bachelor and Master's degree in social work, and a juris doctorate. She has been in full time ministry since February 2011, where God in large the curtains of her habitations, he lengthened her steaks, and he sent her out, not by man, but by him, God sent her out. She has written many teaching books, which include two series of Gods firewall School of the prophets, and God's firewall, healing of the soul, as well as fictional series of the ancient language seekers. Her latest book, mindfulness of the mind of Christ shows the Christian how to walk out their deliverance by the consecration of the body through the word of truth that sets them free. The word of truth, we hear that ladies, that's God's word, is the word of truth. Robin has been married to rich Gatto since 2001, and has two sons, and a daughter and grace and two grandchildren. That's beautiful. You've got your surroundings of love. She's from Birmingham, Alabama, and has taught and preached in other nations including the Philippines and Nicaragua. Robin loves to minister wherever God calls her. And prior to finding her calling, Robin has had a pretty tumultuous life. Right, Robin, we got to share and talk about that a little bit. Until God delivered her ladies. Robin, can you take a few minutes and share with us some of the trials and struggles you went through prior to the time that God brought his power through his word into your life? Robin Kirby Gatto Yes, and thank you for that intro. Kimberly, I am so blessed to be here and I'm super excited. Because I know that God has a plan and there's such a power in the testimony. There is a yoke destroying anointing, and I know that this is for someone out there specifically that's watching the day and said So, early on, God drew me to himself. When I was six years old, he would wake me up on Sunday mornings while everybody else was asleep. And he would tell me to get up and get that little handmade dress my grandmother made all the way to the floor. And he would say, go across the street and go to the church. And I sat on the third P on the inside, so I could see the pasture. And the only way that I can describe it, Kimberly is it was like this Amber, honey gold was coming down on this pasture. And my mouth was like this. And I just took in every word that this pastor preached, and taught in that particular service in every service thereafter. And so I asked them what to do. And they led me to get a Sunday school. And church was part of an escape for me, I actually have a brother that's a year older. And we were latchkey kids back in the late 60s, and 70s, early 70s. And he had met massive anger issues massive. And so I was there every day, all through school, all the way through high school dealing with that anger that he had, and I was the recipient of that anger every single day. And so charge was an escape for me and so many avenues. And I love the Lord, my family started going to church, my family started the Lord. But at the same time, nobody really wanted to deal with these anger issues. Because I was the only person that had to see them, mainly, while we were latchkey kids. And so one thing led to another, and I served the Lord through elementary served the Lord through middle school, I would get teased, or we get persecuted in high school in middle school, because I just really loved the Lord. And I would date a couple of guys. And because I wanted to protect my purity, they ended up leaving me with young ladies that would give them their desires and what they wanted. And so my senior year of high school, I just kind of went into rebellion. I was just so mad at God. And I was thinking, God, I'm doing all these things, right. And all of these bad things keep happening. And I just wanted to flat out rebel again, I was also very much in a protected zone by my parents, which is good. And so when I went to college, I just went party animal crazy, and that rebellion. And of course, I didn't do well in my first semester of college, because I hardly attended any classes. And the next thing I do is I find myself back home. And I go to a local junior college, and I get connected to the wrong man. And my mother warns me and she's a Baptist, but she has such a gift to discerning of spirits. And she warns me she said, Robin, he is demon possessed, do not marry him. But I was in rebellion. I was just angry with God angry with my parents, and that there was this undercurrent of anger is all I can tell you, and so on marry this man. And the next thing I know is he ends up being this drug dealer and he was actually from a narc pulling me aside on the road, right before I had a way of escape from that marriage. The narc told me that he was number two in the state of Mississippi on the entire narc list that he was number two in the state. And he warns me and God will always send you warnings. And he will, he will provide a written submission on web scape. And so, this man after we got married against obesity severely, He locked the door with deadbolt locks. He starts the and he beat me he would put guns to my head knives to mouth right. And so it was very intense. And I had been a cheerleader. I was overall girl I was class favorite. You would have never known this was me. But that undercurrent of anger I believe towards my brother. Growing up with constant, being the recipient of that anger and just having to tolerate it. It just really took me down a place that I didn't want to go. And after nine months of being married to this man and he was demon possessed. After nine months, God provided a way of escape and a ram in the bush and at 2pm to 8am in the morning. I was able to get the key out of his pocket because he kept it in his pocket. And I was able to grab that key and just hightail it up the street. And with him running behind me, I knew I was dead. And at this point I was about 82 pounds, I had been so starved and so beaten. And God had a policeman right at the top of that street. And I was able to leave that marriage. But the damage that that did to my self esteem was beyond measure. And it took over just a decade to be able to see it in a room without my stomach and knots and having panic attacks. Well, shortly after that, three years later, I married a doctor, a pre med student, and helped him get through med school. And at the same time was getting my bachelor's in social work. And my internship at the Baptist children's village with severe Lee hurt children. My supervisor called me in for what I thought was just going to be a regular meeting. And it wasn't just a regular meeting, she was confronting the fact that I was abused. And there I found out I disassociated. And it was at that point that God began to work on my person. Kimberly Hobbs Wow. Wow. Wow. And he did. He did. And you went through that marriage as well. And you were telling me about how you went from not only? Well, there were some struggles within? Which Yes, you out of that marriage? Yes. into a place where alcoholism started taking over talk about that a little bit, you got into this unbelievably sad, depressed state, because you felt that you were making mistake after mistake is despite the time that you were learning all of this worldly knowledge that got you had your bachelor's, and then you got your masters. And then the things were happening in your life talk about that really quick? Robin Kirby Gatto Yes. In fact, I married the doctor, I put him through medical school after going through residency, and it was my turn to go back and get my master's in social work. And I thought things were great. But how, how many times does God give you something in your network, that you just know that something's going to happen, and that you don't see yourself somewhere where someone else would see you. And so God showed me that I was not going to leave the house that I was in, and the doctor and I put a contract on my dream home. I put them through medical school, it was time for us to get our margerine home. And the next thing I know is I'm standing at that house with his family. And they asked me Are you excited about this house and I said, I don't see myself here. I don't see myself here. And Holy Spirit was speaking to me. And it was shortly after that, that I found out who was actually trying to move me out of the home with the two boys of one and six year old boys. Because he was having an affair, Kimberly and I had no clue. But God protected me and our house never sold. And he kept me in this house. And at that time, I was serving God, I was hungry, I would. I didn't have the power of Holy Spirit. I was hungry and thirsty for righteousness. But I did not know the power. I hadn't tasted the power at that time. And then the next thing I know is I'm a single mom, trying to pursue God, I've been going to church, I've been taking my voice to church, I'm always there. And the next thing on a thing shift. And I just happened to go to the divorce recovery group with two ladies. And it's in the church. But these two ladies were drinking wine. And all it took was one night with those ladies at their house. And I just drunk a sip of wine. And the next thing I know is it became my medication for my pain. Because I kept looking for my painting counselors to be resolved for my pain and friends to be resolved. And I kept looking to people to help me with my pain. But there was only one that could help me with my pain. Instead, God began to transition me and show me areas of my soul that were in such captivity. And this was right before I married my husband rich. I had actually been engaged. I was a single mother four and a half years, and I went into alcoholism. medomak medicated my pain through alcoholism. That was my medication. Antidepressants didn't work. So my only anti really depressant and which made me more depressed was alcohol. And so it was the most horrific thing that I could have ever done. But God knew that my lineage the family generations had alcoholism in it. And I didn't know that alcoholism was in my family, and that it just came up in my members. And it just became this Strong call that I could not find my way out of. And I began by the Holy Spirit, God began to speak to me, he brought me back to the simple place of the Word, and the power of the word, John 832, you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. And God began to say, Robin, you are not a drunk, and I said, Hello, God, I'm drinking. He said, but were in my word, does it say your job. He said, You are the righteousness of Christ Jesus, you are seated in heavenly places, I have a plan to give you a hope and a future and not to harm me. And the gift of faith was deposited in me. And God began to speak to me. And he said, Robin, I want you to start speaking this word. Now this is as I'm still an alcoholic, I'm still in bondage. And then I meet my soon to be husband and I marry in 2001. Rich, who doesn't want anything to do with alcohol? Who doesn't want anything to do with someone in bondage, but God drew this man to me. And he watched this entire transformation, as the Holy Spirit's stirred me up in the day, to where I would just speak the word and only the word. And he would even mention sometimes will Robin, you just drank the night before? I said, but I'm not an alcoholic. Nowhere in the Word of God. Does it say that I'm an alcoholic, and Jesus wasn't a drunk. And so if Jesus wasn't a drawl, and nowhere in the war, does it say I got just started this day. And I just spoke it. And on Resurrection Sunday, 2001, my husband and was a 2002, Resurrection Sunday, my husband's there. I feel the power of Holy Spirit, and it is offertory that you're passing the offering around, wanting that offertory Tom, and my heart is beating 100 miles an hour. And I look down at my heart and I'm thinking what is going on with me. And that amber color honey that I saw was a six year old girl. It came on matar person. And I heard God say stand Oh, and a call see Mullins, my Redeemer lives was playing. And I stood up. And the power board came on me. And I'm shaking, and my mind is going what is going on with my body. And my knees are weak, and my husband stands behind me. And the power of God came on me and in one moment just broke chains off on 2002 Resurrection Day. Kimberly Hobbs Amen. Amen. And you know, ladies are hearing that and sometimes we hear stories in various different ways. But that's the power of the Lord. He is a limitless God that can do the most amazing things in our life. And he delivered you that day. And John a 32, you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. That's the scripture you use. And God used his word of truth as you were sitting there in church, and it's permeating you and he was preparing you. And he was doing a mighty work in you. And that day you were delivered, chains broke off. And you were free. You were delivered from alcoholism. you repented you taught you were talking to me about this Robin and ladies, this gets good. This woman is full of the wisdom of God because He has just poured into her. You had a heart change as you checked out that that sin and you repented that enslaved you and you were delivered that day. Then I said were you delivered from everything Robin, you know, and you started to tell me, you started getting deliverances from different things coming up in your life like the rage of anger. Can you talk about this with? Robin Kirby Gatto Yes. And just to let you know, I've not shared much ever publicly or even privately except for my husband, about my brother. So a lot of people don't know that. But for some reason, Kimberly, there's someone that needs to hear this because you have lived this. And so I had the resurrection, Sendai. 2002 And just a few months later, and Holy Spirit accelerated me on the Isaiah 35 Eight Highway of Holiness. And God was Redeeming the time because he knew his schedule. I didn't know God's schedule. He knew his schedule. And so he was catching me up. And he put me on that as a 358 highway of holiness where there's no unclean thing. There's no beast, and he just started giving me this hunger and thirst for the word. And I just read the Word and the power of God was just bringing truth and joy just accelerating it in my members to where I could just know the power, the truth. And so God began to speak with me just a few months after the alcoholism that he said, Robin, you have got issues. And so I thought, this deliverance was all new to me. I've never say this. I've just grown up this Baptist girl. All I know is I love the Lord. And so all of this was very new to me. And so a few months later, after the alcoholism, deliverance, on, on the phone was rich a year he lives in, he lives in Connecticut, New York, working out his contract, he worked for non West corporate, which I really love because I like my wish. And I was down here at Alabama steel. So a year of our marriage, he was up there working, I was down here. And so my insecurity, I was jealous at the moment, and there was no reason to be jealous, but there was just insecurities. And it was just time. And so this anger came up in my person. And it just started rising up and God did some supernatural work in that deliverance. And he showed me he said Robin recant of your of the anger towards your brother. He said, You have been angry with him all of this time, repent of anything towards your parents. And that that was the lynch pin. Because if you would have asked, you know, the way that I am right now, I'm doubly that's how I've always been, okay, this is, this is my personality. My personality hasn't changed. It's just been amplified. Okay. So as Robin Kirby Gatto, steroids, after the Lord brings freedom. And so I if you would have told me I had raged, I would have told you, you are crazy. Because I didn't know as they are, but because of the supernatural encounter. And God had me on the floor. And it was like this big thumb on my back and my knees are under my belly, and my arms are out, like in prayer position. And I heard repent, and I began to repent. And it felt like chains broke off of me. And it felt like I was lifted up Kimberly and I could run a mess. That's what I tell everybody after every single one of these deliverances it feels like I was running on air, like the root word, Give us this day, our daily bread elrow It means to lift dog. And that's what happens when you get freedom, Kimberly Hobbs freedom. Same time, that's the freedom and I have to just share the scripture really quick that God gave me Romans 612 to 14 says do not let sin control the way you live. Do not give into sinful desires. Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were but now you have new life. That's you. I mean, like that's why you're like lifted up on the air because you are so excited of the freedom that God gives. Yes. So use your whole body is an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God. Sin is no longer your master for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the Freedom of God's grace. And now you're living in grace Robin. And this is so exciting because God delivered you from your fear of even going into full time ministry. But he had to break away all those chains that were holding you down, right? Because you've had all those things you needed to be delivered from his deliverance through the power of His Word. Yes, that's how we find our deliverance. We read the word it convicts our heart, we go to God and repentance and he delivers. So Robin now here you are he's given you and wait. I've just got to say let loose Robin, and to share what God has taught you about deliverance, and to just share with us. Robin Kirby Gatto Praise God. Well, God began to take the ministry and the first thing I did was go to the Philippines when I was in full time ministry. And over there he said, Robin, I want you to start doing God's bible school the prophets which is nothing but the Navy Seals of discipleship. It is the word, the word the word, just like the old day school the prophets with Elijah and Samuel, because the only people that could do the word and study the Word and have it in there around amongst them. Were the priest or the school, the prophets, those that hung around this prophets. And so God said, Robin, I will do the study the word study the word just like law school, just like you studied every one of those subjects. And God began to bring the wisdom through law school to be able to know those subject matters. He said, I want you to go in every direction in your life, and it is about the word. And as First Corinthians two says, Holy Spirit combines different scriptures, and Holy Spirit shows us things that are fenced in and hidden by the mind of God, the Holy Spirit knows the mind of God and gives us that through the mind of Christ. And so, in those writings, I just began to bring in not my favorite subjects, it was what I resisted in it was the sciences, it was physiology, it was biology was chemistry, it was anatomy, it was astronomy, because God had me unpack the word, Romans 120, says, The God of the invisible shows himself through the visible nature he created. And he just began showing me himself through a flower or through a tree, through a through hit the galaxy, and I just was like, Oh, my goodness, this is absolutely, obviously my own fantastical place. And the next thing I know is I tell everybody, I'm VODs Jerry Rice, for those of y'all who are older out there, he's a wide receiver. And so he would say, Robin study this, and it was like I was going long on fake. And he would just give me subject matter to study with his word. And it would just blow my mind because it would bring understanding to my members. And that is where faith comes. It comes in understanding the word and hearing the Word and understanding the word. And so God began to have me teach the sciences, which were my weakest subject in school, I even though I got honors, and I graduated with honors in all of my schooling, and even college, it was still my weakest subject. I was not a fan of science. But God just gave me his grace. And he brought things together. And I've been doing that for about a decade, over a decade, Kimberly, and everything came together. And God didn't shed me. He said, Robin, the new book you're gonna write is mindfulness, the mind of Christ. And I said, Glory to God. I cannot write to write that book, hallelujah, Holy Spirit. And he said, and I'm going to show you how you were delivered at the receptor level of your body, to show you what printing looks like, and why you had the supernatural encounters. And I delivered to you and I was like, well, glory to God, it is about Tom because he wants to give us wisdom. If we ask, he wants to give us Kimberly Hobbs James 1:5. Robin Kirby Gatto Yep. And said these this whole decade as I was teaching all the different sciences, and even some doctors were some of the students at our schools would go to the doctor with a loved one like a parent, they would say, are you in nursing school? And she would say, No, I'm not in nursing school. But I'm in another school, I just happened in a, an ad, getting detailed anatomy of the heart, the anatomy of the lungs, the anatomy of the brain. I mean, it was just it amplifies when you take it and couple it with Scripture. And so God said, which is one of my favorite scriptures, Romans 12, one and two, he says in Romans 12, one, that we are to consecrate the body as holy as until gone, which is it's reasonable or reasonable worship to God or reasonable service. And then after that, it says, Romans 12, two, that we're not to be conformed to this world, but the world to be transformed by the renewing of our mind, to prove what is the acceptable of God, what is good and pleasing in His sight, by the Spirit of the Lord. And so, about two years ago, God began to speak to me about the mind and body connection, because every time I'd get delivered, my mind would say, what is going on? In this body, and the power of God would come on me by the Spirit of the Lord, because Romans 317 says, Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And so God began to show me that the body has its own language, which is the nations and the mind has its own language, which is thoughts, but it's mainly what is my condition? Am I good? Am I okay? Am I happy? Am I satisfied? Am I bad? The mind is always that's what order to take thoughts captive, and where not to let it get into the body. Because when it gets into the body, it becomes an experienced adult and every single one of our deliverances Kimberly, we're not from the brain down to the body. Just like in law school, having been in social work, and switched to law school, which there are many social workers who do that, but it's a whole different way to study. It's a whole different school. It's Socratic method. It's totally different and they Give me these textbooks that really don't have the answers in the textbooks. So you have to buy study aids to go along with the textbooks. And so it was just difficult for me to grasp law. But I just kept putting my members and when I say members I'm talking about, I allowed my mind to be present. But I wasn't trying to grab it by my mind, I was just allowing my entire presence to be in for that material. And after a month, Holy Spirit would bring me the spirit of understanding, and start connecting the dots. And it would just all of a sudden just come out just so incredible. And I would understand the law completely. And that is how it is with every subject matter of science. And I will be studying such high levels of science that I keep arguing with God, please God, don't let me study this. And then all of a sudden, the spirit of understanding connects everything, and I totally understand what's going on. And so he began to show me he said, Robin, your body has the language of emotion. And your mind has the language of thoughts, he said, but those two connect in the spirit realm and the language of fruit, and your fruit is seen in the spirit realm. And God began to have me and it's all this is all in mindfulness, the mind of Christ. And I write three chapters on the language of fruit and about the mind body connection. And God said, Robin, where does it say in my word to consecrate your mind first, he said, so many people are trying to get free from the mind down to the body, and the body is not consecrated, and they're not going to get free. He said, All you did is you put your entire person in front of the word, and you just kept reading the Word, and you weren't trying to understand it, you're trying to make anything out of it, you just did it on eBay. And as I was committed, I do it like a 401 K plan, you put so much in, and the company puts them at gym, but God puts above that, right, and he wants to know your commitment. And then his return is the power of Holy Spirit. And so God began to bring understanding about the concentration of the body at the receptor level, where particularly memories are stored in the body, not in neurons, but at this particular receptor, called the G protein coupled receptor, which scientists have articulated, is responsible for our behavior, and for our perception. And so we don't realize that we're perceiving through our emotions, and that your emotions are literally neuro peptides hitting this receptor, unpacking memories, and what God did in that first marriage without abuser. And even through the anger of my brother, as he brought in Exodus 1019, where he sins Holy Spirit, He sends a strong west wind to remove all the locusts, and cast them into the Red Sea. And this is the foundation of John Deere ting to which is pruning and it is pruning these memories in your body, that are stored up that are behind your perception behind your behavior. And then God brought in greater understanding as even as I mentioned to you the other day, as we see natural supplements that he says in His word like Isaiah 714 and 15, with a prophecy of a manual, where those natural supplements of a bitter thing, and honey, that sweet thing, and these two tastes, but it's happened to hit this receptor in your body. And I seen and heard praise reports left and right, where people with nicotine addiction, smoking three packs a day for years, they start doing the consecration of the body, and they start doing this bittersweet taste test that I talked about with scripture, and they're seeing deliverance. And so it's about seeing because unclean spirits what God showed me attached to the body, and they attached to the receptor, they're not going to attach to Holy. They're not attached to the clean. They're going to attach to the unclean, and the unclean, are those memories that are stored in the body. Oh, is that not powerful? Kimberly Hobbs It is so powerful, so powerful. Like ladies, gee, I hope and pray that you are getting there. And I knew there was going to be so much here, but even like, it's crazy. So we're going to this is part one ladies. And I'm just encouraging you to tune into next week when we have part two where Robin will finish this because there is so much here. And this is so powerful. And there's so many of us that are holding on to these addictions, these things that are controlling us. And it's all going back to like Robin said, you know, like with, well, again, biblically, we got to go back to what God's Word says. And that's where we're gonna get the freedom. So she's gonna expound on this a little bit more next week. But we have to cut here. And I just want to thank you, but she is going to completely empower you next week at the end with those words, but let us just thank God for what you have brought to us today and sharing your story, Robin. And ladies, if you're feeling the Holy Spirit moving, and you've got to tune in next week, please do so because she's gonna bring it home with all of what God has given her. This was this woman is full of Godly wisdom. She's got all of the book smarts, as you know, by her degrees and everything God has given her but now you get a chance to hear the Godly wisdom that he has poured in because she asked her James one, five, if any of us lack wisdom, let us ask God and he'll give it to us generously to any of us who asked. So tune in next week and we're going to hear a little bit about that. Ladies, I pray you are blessed today from what you've received so far. And from his heart to yours. We are women, world leaders.

In his first ever podcast appearance, Carl Lieser takes a trip down memory lane as he tells stories of the giant whitetail bucks he has taken in the north woods of Maine, Ontario, and Minnesota, among others by tracking, still hunting and calling. He has killed a buck in 8 different decades! Connecticut Carl is also an extremely accomplished shed hunter and artist, and terrific human being. He has more than 30 racks in his trophy room from the mature bucks he has killed, inlcuding 15 200lb bucks and many more that were just a shade under. What's even more impressive is Carl didn't start to truly hunt mature bucks until he was 47 years old when he killed a giant 160 inch 240lb buck. After that day he was selective on his tracks and bucks which has resulted in a room full of amazing whitetails from the last 30 years of hunting. You can meet Carl and buy some of his artwork you'll see in future episodes of this series at HUNTSTOCK taking place on August 12 - 14th at Wildwood Farm in Westminster, MA.

Michael: Hey, everyone, welcome to another episode of the Remote Real Estate Investor. I'm Michael Albaum, and today I'm joined by Brandon Schwab, who is going to be talking to us about how he's turning the senior living facility industry upside down. So let's get into it… Brandon Schwab, what's going on, man? Thanks so much for taking the time to hang out with me today. I appreciate you coming on. Brandon: Hey, man, this year is awesome, man. Thank you for having me. Michael: Oh, of course and I think we're gonna have a lot of fun today, talking about senior living, which is I don't think we've ever covered this topic on the show before. So I'm super excited. Brandon: Never…? Michael: I don't think ever I don't think ever and shame. I know, I know, I know. Shame on us, that's our bad but give us the quick and dirty. We're gonna get into senior living in just a minute. Give us we can do it, who you are, where do you come from and what is it that you're doing in real estate today? Brandon: Down and dirty… I've been in Crystal Lake Illinois. For 35 years, I am 40. I've got two kids I got in real estate in 2010. But back before that, I actually opened up our own company at the age of about 15 years old. I did that for 14 years, until I figured out quickly that I didn't actually own anything. I thought I owned something the whole time. But I found out at the end, I didn't actually own any assets. So therefore, I didn't actually have anything to own to actually have up for sale. So I got into this industry in 2010. After I got crushed after 2008 happened. I at the age of 15. I was cleaning cars in RVs for 14 years and I thought I was crushing it doing there. I was taking home 200 220,000 per year but I was probably working 7080 hours per week. So like wholesaling back in 2010. Because I was like dude, I got paid like $200 for each car and probably about 500 for each RV. So like wholesaling in our first deal was like $1,000 I was like, do you know that would take me like 40 hours just to like, even come close to that and I said I have to get into that business. So that's it, man, it's awesome. Fast forward to today I am changing the industry for how the elderly are taking care of totally upside down. Michael: That's wait. So you're putting elders on their head? I don't think is that is that good for them? Brandon: We obtained we are changing the whole and we're changing the whole industry of how everyone thinks of it because typically, if you think of the older industry, right? You think of 100 to 200 type with a ton of elderly in there, right? Tons of them, right and they typically have a pretty terrible odor and the odor isn't very good. It's the odor because people don't get any help and then there's also the atmosphere of everyone asking for help because the average caregiver has to care for 20 to 30 people. I don't know on you, but we are in the top country in this whole entire and if that's how we care for the elderly, I feel like we didn't do things properly and they have to be totally turned upside down because how they're currently doing it isn't able to operate. I had a thing happen in our family back in 2004 where there was a person in our family who was 85 who ended up in a place for 200 beds and we pulled the pull cord to have people come in there to help them and it took them 10 minutes 15 minutes by 20 minutes like I'm getting like pretty irritated by 25 minutes like I just lose my shit and I go out to get a them to help them and I can't say I handled it all that well because I kind of exploded but like that's how I was first exposed and it turns out that's actually common to how the industry is able to operate and I said that's terrible. I hate this industry, hate it, hate it hate it. They bought 10 years after that I was down in Florida and I got exposed to a five a home that had five people in it and I was like what is this? You know at the time I had 23 homes in our total I began build In our portfolio in 2012, and by the end of 12, I had 23 homes and I had, I thought I kind of had everything figured out. Well, at the end of 14, I'm in this house down in Florida and I'm doing each one of these like arms kind of crossed, because I'm just looking at the place and I go, What is this? I haven't ever seen a home before that is it was probably a 2800 foot house. There was houses on each side, probably 10 or 12 feet from the house and I was just like, What is this because typically as I would go down to Florida, Kelly's dad would play his piano in the old folks home 328 times per year for 35 bucks and I hated going because it was typically in these huge in the elderly in the odor was just terrible and I was just like, if we can get out of that, is there anything that I can do that I don't have to actually, and I would offer to like cook to clean all of that just so I didn't have to go? Thank God, I didn't I didn't have any option because I was ill put this house and I was like, What is this? This is cool. It's it didn't have any odor. It had this awesome atmosphere and I was just like, how have I been in? How have I been investing in assets and I don't have any clue what this is and I asked the girl in charge, and I said, hey, how much do these people pay to be here and I threw out a figure of like 1500 or $2,000 in this girl did this hurt? Like her eyes came down here and like this girl's answer was like, and just kind of kept on walking and I was like, Kelly, what the hell was that answer? She didn't even answer me. So I ended up calling her and the girl goes, Brandon, I am sorry, I thought that you were only kidding because they begin at $5,200 a month, what times five people I'm like, that's $26,000 and every home that I had all 23 Our highest was like $2,200 per month and our average was like 18 and I said holy crap that one house with five people in it was outperforming every house that I had two times each month. And I was like, I'm in the I have to get into that business and by the time I was able to come home, I found a house in a town of 832 people and it was the house was 4880 feet on three acres. So like we bought it for 250 and put $550,000 into it right over the top. I got this house full by February of 17 and we were gross and 55,000 of income within a cost of the expenses of like 30 to 32,000 a month. So this house was jam on month, one month, one house, we were changing the industry to and offered this cool option that people have never heard of. Michael: So you're netting like 20 grand a month on this place. Brandon: Per house, yes and I have homes that are 1015 and 20 each home. So that's the that's the entry level for us, is 10, so… Michael: I mean, okay, I've like speeches, I have so many questions. So I've got to imagine caring for the elderly. This is a very medically intensive, medically heavy industry and so talk to us a little bit about how do you how do you get into this industry because I think there's so many barriers to medical and then care and I could go on but tell us how you how you got started. Brandon: So when I got going, I had everything in the to open up the house, right, I was able to open it. I even got the first two or three people in there, right and when I quickly got past like two or three people, I quickly figured out that I didn't really have the experience to operate them, right. So I was doing what I was trying to do to get the house full was I was calling on churches, in particularly wanting to talk to the head of each church. Now, I found out quickly that churches are hard to call on because they don't ever answer and they don't tend to call you back but I finally got one and I called in I was talking to the church pastor and honestly, I think he felt terrible for me because he's like, Brandon, you aren't so good at this like this is this isn't going to be your thing, right? So like he goes Brandon, hi god, their closest friend was in health care for 38 years. She just retired in in. She was getting kind of anxious to like go in to do things. So they introduced me and she was in health care industry for 38 years I ended up taking You're out to eat every Tuesday for about six months and I finally got her on our team, I got her to invest, but I had her in charge of operations and that was back in 2015. So I basically was able to open up homes, but I quickly figured out that I needed a team of experts to actually operate them. So after I had her in, it was in 2015, I kind of had her handle the ops and I focus on opening up homes. Michael: That is wild. So at the beginning, before you brought her up, where I mean, were you there at the home, cooking, cleaning, doing all that kind of stuff yourself? Brandon: No, I only had to go there when people didn't come in. So there was a handful of times where a person called in, and I had to go in there. That wasn't very fun and I quickly figured out I need to have things in place that that isn't going to ever happen over because I found out quickly that I am not very good when it comes to cleaning and taking care of people I quickly said, you know, I had to get out early. So I found people, I did have to cover a handful of shifts and I did call in for help because there were some things I just couldn't do. Michael: I can imagine, I can imagine. So when you're looking at properties, I mean, this first property, what about it kind of jumped out at you and said, Hey, this, this is a good candidate or a good prospect to purchase, you know, for this type of business. Brandon: So when I was down in Florida, I saw a five bed house in the five bed house was great. But the five bed house wasn't. It was geared for like an owner operator, a person that was in a health care field and I quickly figured out that that wasn't going to be us that I couldn't do that personally. So I decided to exercise. So I was looking for a first floor house, it was like 5000 feet, first floor 5000 feet. That's hard to find. So when I came back home, I thought that they'd be everywhere because down in Florida, there's 1800 of these homes. California has 2800 out there close to you, I think Arizona has 3000, Texas has 15,000 back by us. There's 55 by five, so I said… Michael: And when you say when you say these homes, you mean like single family homes in neighborhoods that are being used for senior care facilities. Brandon: So I am talking about homes that are caring for the elderly under 10 people. It is under 15 people per home. Michael: Okay, All right. So you had 55 in your market…? Brandon: 55 not in and there's 18 in all of Florida, and there was only 55 here, right and I said, that's bingo. Perfect I'm in, so that's how I first jumped in but a thing a thing that happened is when I first got in, there wasn't a ton of other people out there doing this. So I had to kind of go teach people this concept. So the healthcare part was definitely challenging but the houses that I was trying to find where four to 5000 feet, first floor only our first house, it was on three acres. It was a financial planner that I purchased that bought our debt built in office on to his house. So I had to open things up, I ended up putting 550,000 into the first house. So I had four private bedrooms, and I had three bedrooms for two people each. So for privates, and then I had three for two. So I had a total of 10. Did I go over, did I go overboard? Absolutely but I feel like if you're going to do anything, you have to do it how it ought to and I put three ADA A's on the inside for people to go to the psych bathroom, I only had to have only one and I had 380 access points to get into the house and out of the house and we just did everything over the top. So that's how I first got in and then beyond that house, it was harder to find that type of house over. So fast forward to today I've got five homes up and operating. I got two homes opening up in quarter three this year. And then in 2000 are in I also have 7.2 acres of land that I bought before COVID that I was going to put our own homes on. Michael: This is incredible. So what is the financing look like for these homes? I mean, can you go to a bank and say hey, I want the purchase. I want to purchase it at 20 and I want you to give me a line of credit for the construction for the rehab. I mean who's financing this type of stuff… Brandon: I had a chance, dude when I went in there to talk to these guys, they thought I had like, they couldn't get it. These guys are used to like, easy, typical type deals, when I told them that, that I was going to 10 people each paying 5000 to 5500. Each month, their heads literally exploded. They're like, Hey, man, why don't you come back after you do your first house? Then I'll talk to you and I was able to do that and they're like, hey, why don't you come back when you have two houses and then at that, at that part, I am like, you know, I don't think I'm going to actually go ask him for anything anymore. But like, that's how it happens. So a thing that I do for financing is I actually brought in private capital, from investors on a per L for each home and that's, that is how we did, I had to offer some pretty high IRR hours. But when you're first getting things going, that is your only option and a thing that I found that I was really good at is when I was buying properties, I was buying like oddball type properties, not the typical like three to 2200. So I was buying houses that were on properties that the typical family at the time weren't trying to buy, right. So I was buying houses that were on the app on the MLS for 200 days, 400 days, 500 days and what I would do is I would give them an offer for them to carry back financing at the full asking price. Or I would give them an offer for cash but the cash offer was like so like 50% and a lot of times I was just using that cash offer to help prop up the other offer but I've had a handful of times where when I was putting in those two offers, they would take the other one. So I bought one house off the MLS one time that was on for 2.4 million. I bought that for 750 cash and other time I bought one in Connecticut that was on the MLS for 2.1 million. I bought that one for 700,000. Michael: Okay, you are not kidding, those cash offers 30, that's incredible a budget you're solving for someone's like, that's… Brandon: Yeah, those are offers that as I was able to have them in I thought no ways anyone can ever take this off or like they are going to be like, click just kiss but they took him because our other offer was 1.8 million owner carry back financing and they just didn't take but that was probably only 30% of our upfront portfolio. The other ones, I've had them take the owner offer carrying back financing. So that so that is how we did hazing. Michael: And then you bring in investor capital to do the rehab, whatever upgrades you need. Yep, amazing. Brandon: Yes, sir. Michael: So like, when you're looking at properties, there's got to be at Imagine zoning limitations or requirements or local licensures that you need to get what, like, what should people be on the lookout for or how should someone be thinking about those? Brandon: Well, anyone that's thinking of getting into this themselves and having people operate it themselves, I would tell you don't do it. It is something that I casually got into it thinking that I could just figure it out and it's been one of the most challenging things I've done, where it's taken me eight years, open up five houses and it's challenging. But as I would look for houses, I would look for houses in an area where the household income, the average was over 80,000 and then one of the things that I would do is I would go to the population and I would look for a population of in each town over 65 years of age, I would look for like 10 to 12% plus, anything that was up over hire, that was awesome. I did buy the 7.2 acres of land, all of our first five homes, they're in towns where it's like, you know, 10 to 20 or 10 to 18% over the age right. And then the town that I bought this dirt in for 7.2 acres, we paid 220,000 per acre but it is located directly next to a Dell property. That's that is 5500 homes that are all 55 plus. So our percentage of over 65 in this town of 26,000 people is 32% Wow. Let's go. All of us purchase that. Before COVID. We were finishing that we got through entitlements, we were going to build six homes, 20 beds each and in office, it was gonna cost us $15.5 million. We had the all of that done, we even had a closing in place for a family office down in Florida, actually to give us a 10 $10.86 million at 12% and they were going to close March 13 2020. We were going to begin pushing dirt April 1, 2020. If you think back to the time, a little COVID pandemic entered into this plan, and the family office were two guys that were probably in their 70s or 80s themselves that earned a bulk of their family office capital from offices and they were in the class a office industry, right and they were trying to take cash out of that inputted into any other asset class and they ended up pulling out two days before closing. Yeah, because they were having tenants that GSA weren't paying. So it wasn't ideal, the overall timing of it, but our things have changed where we aren't building today because cost the build is just too high, where we are holding off until that cost comes back down and we are doing other things today that that fit what is going on. Michael: Okay, you should have told those guys look, you'll get a free room and board. Just give me the money. I'll build you a spot. Brandon: I was trying. It just wasn't great timing. I was like, what COVID? Come on. That's fine. It was just too early for us to have any clue. So yeah, unfortunately, they passed but I'm gearing things today now to try to build those connections up with those guys, because a ton of those guys have capital galore. So much dry powder that's just sitting, where if they can find an asset class that is out there that can help the elderly that can help give them awesome IRR that's going to top inflation and also help have a tangible asset. That's what they are looking for today. I think the days where people earn in 200% 300% Kryptos those days are kind of over for some time now, where people are looking for tangible assets today and I have this, so… Michael: That is amazing and so these houses, I would imagine they serve three meals a day, and they've got all the medical care and there's like it's like a proper business like you would expect to see if you went to a traditional elder care facility, you would have all those same amenities and sounds like and then more, right… Brandon: So a thing that's different for us for a for every home that has 10 Total people in it, I have a caregiver to every five to eight, five to eight total people compared to the other. The other competition has a caregiver every 1520 to 30 people. That's the thing that causes the old the overall odor. So in a home for 10 total people, I've got two caregivers in there from 7am till 10pm and then I've got a RN that comes in in the am and in the evening just to have eyes on everybody and then I have… that comes each week or as he has to write. So I offer everything in a home that is very cozy that other places have in 100 to 200 type building. Now, with that being said, it's actually harder for us to be as efficient as everyone else. As I only have 458 homes, I actually need like 1020 3040 80 homes to actually have things be efficient. So I'll tell you 10 Plus, under 10, it's hard to be efficient and that's a thing that keeps other people from being able to get into this overall industry or if they do get in there. They're the owner operator that owns a home or to homes but they're in it every day going 80 hours per week probably profiting 250 to 400,000 per year, but they're busy and I said you know I can't do that I'm going to operate a company that I can expand, to have time to go do other things. You know, I've our oldest is 14 years old and I openness that I could have time to coach him, right and I have been able to coach him playing baseball just since he was eight years old and that's only possible because everything here so time free is… Michael: That's amazing, Brandon. I think my last question for you. I mean, I have a million more, let's be honest but we gotta keep this within time. How do you insure the thing, is it like us traditional long term rental? Is it insured like a medical office? I mean, what does that look like? Brandon: Yeah, so the insurance is going to, you're going to have insurance on the overall asset but then you also have to have extra, the extra insurance for operating it for E and O for if anything is able to happen, if anyone's able to get hurt all of that. That's typically about $800 Each house each month but a thing for us, though, is because I haven't had any issues. Over the past eight years, we haven't had any, any type claims, whereas you're in a home with only 10 people, if you offer on if you offer awesome care, they don't tend to have any issues and that's what's awesome on this because typically at the other places for 100 to 200. They have a they've got a caregiver to every 20 to 30 people because the owners are trying to get it to earn extra money. The only avenue to do that is either to push up your income or to cut your expenses. That's the only thing to change the actual NOI. So what they typically do is they cut the care giver item, which is going to an increase the NOI. However, when people are able to have issues and they are able to pass, then you have their families, a attorneys after you and they're pissed, telling everyone how terrible you are. I always feel that it is better to do things how they ought to be done upfront, even if it's harder, because everything that I'm able to do is harder. Like this isn't easy by any means I would tell you, it takes you getting to like home tend to like really cover the overhead. The overhead I found to truly operate this properly, is over 500,000 per year and in order to pay for that you need enough houses paying towards that, to don't have each house covered in too much expenses that they just can't cover, so… Michael: That makes total sense. Big numbers… Brandon: Big numbers. Michael: Yeah, awesome Brandon, this was so much fun, man. If people want to learn more about you reach out with additional questions. What's the best way for them to do that? Brandon: They can they can call me or text me. So on my phone, you can call me at 815-790-2330 or else you can call our office of 847-380-8624, yes, 847-380-8624. Michael: Amazing and do you have a website that people can check out as well? Brandon: I do for our fund but our fund isn't for everyone or funds only for a for investors that are a core they are qualified purchasers. So it's a tear a BB it's a 506 C they can check that out their shepherd, our operating company, I can get you the page to put in there. So it is well just for anyone to put eyeballs on our actual homes or our fund is https://boutiqueseniorlivingfund.com/ Michael: Awesome. Brandon: That is that as well, man. Thanks for taking time to talk with us today, man. This has been awesome! Michael: It has been a pleasure, I am sure we'll be in touch soon and take care. Okay, everyone, that was our show a big thank you to Brandon for coming on super, super interesting topic that like I showed at the beginning of the show. I don't think we've ever had someone on the show talking about this topic, so really interesting. Definitely go check out Brandon's fund, and it's an interesting asset class. See where it goes from here. As always, thanks so much for watching or listening, and we look forward to seeing the next one. Happy investing…

A new study examining "news deserts" in the U.S. finds an average of two newspapers are closing per week, and estimates that by 2025, "one-third of American newspapers that existed roughly two decades ago will be out of business." This hour, we hear from lead author Penny Abernathy, plus, a researcher with Oxford's Reuters Institute who found that at the same time, digital news is failing to fill the void. "More people are disconnected, interest in news is down, selective news avoidance up, and trust far from a given," the annual Digital News Report concluded. We'll hear from local journalists to discuss how these trends are playing out in Connecticut.

We discussed his books in the context of topics, and I had so many things to talk with him about. We also got into the role of diet and nutrition, science versus woo-woo in health and nutrition information, and even a little bit on Wim Hof. We also talked quite a bit about running, the role of genetics and health/performance, the role of recovery is now much more appreciated and perhaps understood as a performance enhancer, and illness prevention. Jordan certainly lives his life in full and he helps millions of others do so as well. This episode is not to be missed.

A Contra Costa county school board member suggests boycotting July 4th. After British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian premier Justin Trudeau joked about posing shirtless at the G7 to “show that we're tougher than Putin,” the Russian president responded. Amnesty International has concluded that the March attack on a Ukrainian theater full of refugees was a "clear war crime" perpetuated by Russian forces. Former UFC champion, Cain Velasquez, is suing the man he tried to kill, claiming he molested his 4-year-old son while at daycare. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In the Summer 2022 issue of Connecticut Explored, author and historian Steve Thornton of the Shoeleather History Project brings us the story of the internationally-renown activist, actor, and singer Paul Robeson and his wife Eslanda, an anthropologist, author and activist in her own right. The Robeson's home from 1941 to 1953 in Enfield, Connecticut is on the Connecticut Freedom Trail as well as the National Register of Historic Places. The Hartford Courant reported on April 1, of 1941 that, “The stucco house is situated on two and a half acres of land. The property includes a recreational building which houses a bowling alley and an outdoor swimming pool… A purchase price of about $10,000 was indicated by the attached revenue stamp.” The next day the Courant reported, “Paul Robeson will move into his new home here, “The Beeches” on May 1… The luxurious house is in a state of disrepair but Mrs. Robeson has arranged with local workers to renovate the house and grounds…Built in 1903, the living room is richly paneled with a marble mantle… The grounds are shaded by many old trees, including several beeches on the broad lawns in front of the house.” What attracted the Robeson's to Enfield? Why did the FBI keep them under surveillance in Connecticut? And how did a Robeson concert at Hartford's Weaver High School in 1952 become a huge local controversy? Let's hear from Steve Thornton about the Robesons activism and life while living in Connecticut.

Stories of world-ending catastrophe have featured prominently in film and television lately. Zombie apocalypses, climate disasters, alien invasions, global pandemics, and dystopian world orders fill our screens—typically with a singular figure or tenacious group tasked with saving or salvaging the world. In her new book, Apocalypse and Heroism in Popular Culture: Allegories of White Masculinity in Crisis (McFarland Press, 2022), Dr. Katherine E. Sugg asks, why are stories of End Times crisis so popular with audiences? And why is the hero so often a white man who overcomes personal struggles and major obstacles to lead humanity toward a restored future? This book examines the familiar trope of the hero and the recasting of contemporary anxieties in films and TV like The Walking Dead, Snowpiercer, Mad Max: Fury Road, and more. Some have familiar roots in Western cultural traditions, yet many question popular assumptions about heroes and heroism to tell new and fascinating stories about race, gender and society, and the power of individuals to change the world. Katherine E. Sugg is a professor of English and Latino & Puerto Rican studies at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, Connecticut. She teaches and writes on world literatures, Latino and comparative American studies, and film and media. She has also written several journal articles and published a book entitled Gender and Allegory in Transamerican Fiction and Performance.

Stories of world-ending catastrophe have featured prominently in film and television lately. Zombie apocalypses, climate disasters, alien invasions, global pandemics, and dystopian world orders fill our screens—typically with a singular figure or tenacious group tasked with saving or salvaging the world. In her new book, Apocalypse and Heroism in Popular Culture: Allegories of White Masculinity in Crisis (McFarland Press, 2022), Dr. Katherine E. Sugg asks, why are stories of End Times crisis so popular with audiences? And why is the hero so often a white man who overcomes personal struggles and major obstacles to lead humanity toward a restored future? This book examines the familiar trope of the hero and the recasting of contemporary anxieties in films and TV like The Walking Dead, Snowpiercer, Mad Max: Fury Road, and more. Some have familiar roots in Western cultural traditions, yet many question popular assumptions about heroes and heroism to tell new and fascinating stories about race, gender and society, and the power of individuals to change the world. Katherine E. Sugg is a professor of English and Latino & Puerto Rican studies at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, Connecticut. She teaches and writes on world literatures, Latino and comparative American studies, and film and media. She has also written several journal articles and published a book entitled Gender and Allegory in Transamerican Fiction and Performance. Carrie Lynn Evans is a PhD student at Université Laval in Quebec City. email@example.com @carrielynnland Learn more about your ad choices.

She will be discussing a Connecticut law, called Desmond's Law, which allows law students, and lawyers, to be appointed to assist the court in certain animal cruelty cases… The post Animal Law Podcast #85: Desmond’s Law appeared first on Our Hen House.
Home prices were up over 20% year on year in April. Meanwhile, people are flipping houses at the highest pace since 2000.

Also in today’s episode: the proposed cap on Russian oil prices, Old Navy’s struggles with inclusive sizing and a Connecticut law limiting “captive audience” anti-union meetings.
