All Shall Be Well: Conversations with Women in the Academy and Beyond

"What if the greatest theologians the world has ever known are those whom the world wouldn't consider theologians at all?" — Kat Armas Kat Armas chats with us about the navigating seminary, grieving over research, and discovering wisdom in unexpected places.  Let me invite you into a conversation with Kat Armas, theologian and author of Abuelita Faith: What Women on the Margins Teach Us About Wisdom, Persistence and Strength. In her book, Kat builds a bridge between intellectualism and earthy wisdom as she considers the question, “What if the greatest theologians the world has ever known are those whom the world wouldn't consider theologians at all?” Through an exploration of history, Scripture, and her own Cuban-American upbringing, Kat draws fresh insight into the rich wisdom that can be found in women who are often overlooked in theological conversations. In our discussion, Kat shares about her own personal spiritual journey, including the complexities of navigating seminary as a Cuban-American woman. Her encouragement to continue questioning the status quo and looking for wisdom in unexpected places is a breath of fresh air. Kat is fun and vivacious and full of stories, and I think you'll really enjoy this episode. So have a listen! We're so glad you're here. — Ann Boyd For show notes or more information please visit our article at The Well.

There is a common hurdle for many first generation immigrants: feeling out of place. Whether that's in school, speaking a different language, or living through parents' expectations. Today: two books about overcoming those feelings of inadequacy. First, Simu Liu, Marvel's first Asian superhero, discusses his memoir We Were Dreamers, where he talks about his complicated relationship with his parents and what he calls his "immigrant superhero origin story." Then, Cuban-American author Margarita Engle explores what it's like to be an outsider as a bilingual speaker and the creative freedom she found in writing Spanish without italics in her book.

Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) trended last week for her comments confronting the Biden Administration and Democrats for propagating open border policies, saying that, “Latinos do not want open borders”. Her comments come in light of a recent poll showing that Biden's approval rating amongst Latinos was at shocking, 26%. Salazar comments that Democrats misunderstand and have historical used Latino voters. Biden's recent negotiations with the “Marxist Cuban regime”, is not only “not going to make the Cubans behave better with the Cuban people”, but is only a plot to “extract more concessions”, so that “they can stay in power longer”. The Miami Congresswoman says that her “big fight” is against the “Neo-Marxists, saying, “we always have to go back to Obama, because Obama was the one who proved that my mother and my ancestors were right when they said you cannot negotiate with that devil.”See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

All rise!  On today's Better Call Daddy Show you'll hear from a tv judge one who developed a second show called Whistleblower! There are a lot of nuances based on state law!  From police officer to lawyer to judge to tv judge, Judge Alex Ferrer has done it all!  What makes a network show work?  What was it like to move the show from Houston to LA?  What are the union rules like in television?  Are the cases real on court television?  What has Judge Alex learned about Hollywood?  Better Call Daddy: The Safe Space For Controversy! Alex Ferrer's family fled communist Cuba to the United States when he was just a baby. Starting a new life in America, his parents exchanged well-paying careers with an American company in Havana for minimum wage jobs in Miami in order to live in freedom. Watching his parents work several jobs a day to make ends meet, Alex was raised with a strong work ethic. It is that perspective and an appreciation for the opportunities America provides that make his success story a true “American Dream.” Alex began working full time at the age of fifteen, pumping gas at a full-service station, performing oil changes and minor vehicle repairs. He worked six to seven days a week while attending high school during the day. By the time he was seventeen Alex was managing the gas station, closing it down at night on his own and taking the day's receipts to the owner's home. When he was 18, Alex obtained his pilot's license but quickly realized that, while flying was a great hobby, the thought of constantly leaving his family to travel across the country did not appeal to him as a career. Changing gears, he decided to pursue a career in law enforcement. After much resistance because of his young age, Alex finally succeeded in getting a police department to send him to the academy, where officers challenged him every day for being “too young.” Proving them wrong, Alex graduated with the highest award in the police academy, the “Most Outstanding Recruit,” becoming one of the youngest police officers in the State of Florida at the age of 19. Honoring a promise to his parents to keep taking advantage of the educational opportunities America provided, Alex worked full-time as a cop while attending college and eventually law school full-time as well. In law school, this meant attending class daily from 8 to 4 and then donning a uniform and patrolling from 4:30 to 12:30. A late arrest would result in his not returning home until 2 or 3 in the morning but the next day's class would still start at 8am. Despite this rigorous work schedule, Alex was able to become a published member of the University of Miami Law Review, an accomplishment that led to many career opportunities upon graduation. As an attorney, Alex worked as a civil litigator at some of the better law firms in Miami. Despite being very successful in his new career, the personal gratification he had felt as a police officer was noticeably lacking. Anticipating that being a judge would renew the sense of satisfaction he had felt as an officer, Alex ran for a seat on the Circuit Court bench, the highest trial court in the state. Despite being the youngest candidate at 34, he beat out his two opponents, a sitting judge and an attorney 20 years his senior, by a landslide; becoming the youngest judge on Miami's Circuit Court and the first Cuban-American lawyer ever elected to the Circuit Court bench. During his years on the bench, Judge Ferrer tried some of Miami's worst criminals. Serial killers, murderers, rapists, armed robbers and kidnappers all passed through his courtroom. Many trials were covered nationally and several have been the subject of books, documentaries and at least one upcoming movie. He taught and continues to teach judges annually at judicial conferences throughout Florida. After 10 years on the bench, Judge Ferrer was being considered for a vacancy on Miami's prestigious Third District Court of Appeals. Out of 60 well-respected judges and lawyers, he was the only applicant to have been unanimously recommended to Florida's Governor by the Judicial Nominating Commission. Choosing instead to pursue a television opportunity, Judge Ferrer withdrew his name from the Governor's consideration and began resolving disputes in 2005 on his nationally syndicated, televised courtroom show: “Judge Alex,” which has aired in 96% of the U.S for 9 seasons. In 2008 he was named the “Most Trustworthy Daytime Television Host,” beating out such household names as Oprah, Ellen, Regis and Dr. Phil, and was included in People Magazine's Sexiest Man edition. Alex's story starts with him as the child of parents who gave up everything they had so that their family could live in freedom. Working hard through high school, college and law school, his accomplishments included several individual careers on his way to becoming a nationally recognized celebrity and well-respected legal analyst. Whatever opportunities the future holds, there is no doubt that Alex's story is truly the American Dream.       Connect with Reena https://linktr.ee/bettercalldaddy bettercalldaddy.com linkedin.com/in/reenafriedmanwatts twitter.com/reenareena instagram.com/reenafriedmanwatts   Me and my daddy would love to hear from ya drop us a review and subscribe  podchaser.com/bettercalldaddy ratethispodcast.com/bettercalldaddy
