    Ep353 - Lenny Abrahamson Returns, Director ‘Conversations with Friends'

    “It kind of grew out of Normal People,” said Lenny Abrahamson about his new series Conversations with Friends. Both stories come from Irish author Sally Rooney. “It seemed very obvious having gone through the adaptation in episodic form. We learned how best to work with Sally's material and we all felt like Conversations should be a series.” The series are listed as Normal People premiering in 2020 and Conversations with Friends premiering in 2022, but the process was a little more overlapping for the writer/director. “We were cranking up with breaking the episodes while Normal People was still not out in the world.” Normal People “…follows Marianne and Connell, from different backgrounds but the same small town in Ireland, as they weave in and out of each other's romantic lives.” Conversations with Friends is about “…two Dublin college students, Frances and Bobbi, and the strange and unexpected connection they forge with married couple, Melissa and Nick.” In this interview, the writer-director talks about making limited series instead of films, how he carried on the Normal People style, why he dislikes the Syd Field method, and what he's learned working on adaptations.

    Jaime Carrasco: Central Banks Admit They have Lost Control of Inflation

    Tom welcomes Jaime Carrasco of Canaccord Genuity back to the show. Jaime expected inflation as the marginal usefulness of excessive debt has declined. There is plenty of evidence from our debt-based system that a currency reset is coming. Governments taking on the debts of banks was evidence that some sort of currency reset is in the cards. Global trade patterns are rapidly shifting, and gold is part of that equation. It's clear that taxpayers are placed on the hook for the actions and debts of government. Politics and central bankers are all interconnected. The rest of the world is beginning to understand why they need out of this system. The long-term picture for commodities shows just how muted gold has become lately. We see that nearly everything has gone up in price. Gold should currently be sitting around three thousand based on inflation. We don't have the supply of commodities in the West to maintain low prices. Central banks remain buyers of gold while telling the public it's a pet rock. The rest of the world has realized that Russia as a large energy provider is capable of backing its currency with oil. This will allow China, India and Russia to trade outside the dollar system. Much of the world, including Latin America, is lining up behind the China and India. Today, the bulk of copper produced in Chile is exported to China. Chile will likely switch soon to alternatives to the dollar. We're witnessing an enormous power shift towards the East. The age of cheap stuff from Asia is now over. We're going to have to start building up our own industries. This will come with the cost of inflation, having to unwind all the debts. When gold inevitably becomes unpegged, we will see a rapid change in the price. This is because of the huge imbalances, and there will be a rush to buy. This is why you should already be in the lifeboat and wait patiently.

    We complete season four with this lively conversation between Drew and beloved Hoffman teacher and coach, Marissa Ingrasci. Marissa grew up in a Hoffman home. Her parents, Raz and Liza Ingrasci, founded the Hoffman Institute. Marissa shares a sweet memory of when she was first taught about the Light and the capacity we have to claim our own agency and connection to the Light. Fifteen years ago, Marissa came to the Process feeling lost and disconnected from herself. At the end of her Process, she felt happy and bursting with love for her parents in a way she didn't know she could. Through the Process, Marissa connected to herself and the Light in a deeper way. Marissa shares some deep wisdom about how to live a Right Road life with compassion for self and others, as well as equanimity and joy. In living on the Right Road, we still have challenges. Days will be hard, but with access to Process tools and an integrated Quadrinity, we can meet any challenge with love. Marissa touches on the dramatic creative change and growth the Hoffman Institute went through when Covid hit in March 2020. She was teaching the last Process before everything shut down for Covid. Marissa shares how it was clear that the students in that Process were going to be released into a very different world than the one they left behind when they entered the Process. What might it mean to be ready to do the Process, or in Marissa's words, "step into the mystery?" It might not mean what you think. Take a listen to hear more about what readiness looks like, especially in these times of great change. We'll be back with season five in August! More about Marissa Ingrasci: Marissa Ingrasci is a Hoffman Process teacher and coach. She manages the Marketing department at Hoffman and is a Faculty Manager. Marissa holds a BA from Emerson College and received her coaching training through the ICF-approved, Academy of Leadership Coaching & NLP. She is also a certified NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) coach. As mentioned in this episode: Matt Brannagan: Matt is Vice-President and Director of Faculty at Hoffman Institute Foundation.

    Hello, kaiju lovers! In this bonus “Ameri-kaiju” episode, Travis Alexander of Kaiju Weekly and Henshin Men finally gets to see the goo—and he's not happy! That's mostly because he's an animal lover and the Blob eats a kitten in the almost-forgotten and incredibly weird 1972 sequel, Beware! The Blob (aka Son of Blob). It's the most bipolar movie Nate has ever seen for the show, and Travis, a lover of movies both weird and bad, found it borderline incomprehensible. Half of it is disjointed improvisational comedy, and the other half is a scary but inferior rehashing of the original 1958 classic. Strap for a discussion of more 30-year-old “teens,” a “hair sculptor,” and a Naked Turk! Additional music: “Pacific Rim” by Niall Stenson “Beware! The Blob Theme” by Mort Garson “Chant My Name!” by Masaaki Endo Check out Nathan's (and Travis's) spinoff podcasts, The Henshin Men and The Power Trip.

    If you live in a small town, grew up in one, or just have a rural community that's close to your heart, you've probably heard things like, “Young people don't stay in this community,” or “After the plant closed, we've been losing population.” When people leave and no one comes to replace them in smaller towns, businesses shut down, schools are half-empty, open positions can't be filled, and even basic services are a struggle to cover with declining property taxes. It's a downward spiral. Today's guests are doing something about that. Jennifer Stromsten is the Director of Programs at the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation in Brattleboro, Vermont, and Alex Beck runs their Welcoming Communities program. These leaders take a holistic approach to addressing problems like population decline through economic investment, workforce training, and, of particular interest for our conversation today, inviting new Americans—refugees—to their community and helping them integrate and find employment when they arrive.  Jen and Alex talk about how this Welcoming Communities initiative has breathed new life into their rural town, giving a sense of hope for the future, filling necessary jobs and rebuilding the economic prospects of the place.  Their organization has worked with local businesses to partner them with new immigrants, coordinating transportation, setting up interpreters when needed, and figuring out what training these refugees need to get back on their feet and begin employment in Brattleboro. It's a situation that everyone is benefitting from. Additional Show Notes Visit the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation website.

    In light of Roe v. Wade being overturned on June 24th, we decided to record this episode. Liz is sharing her story of getting an abortion at age 17, in 1971, before Roe v. Wade was put into effect just two years later. As Liz says in the episode, this is a story of two strong women: a 17-year old with a bright future of impact and empowerment in front of her, and a strong mother that moved mountains to secure that future for her.   Some things you'll hear in this episode: Liz's brave and vulnerable story of getting an abortion in 1971, and what it was like to go through the process of getting an appointment, included how she was treated by medical staff, before Roe v. Wade. How the overturning of Roe v. Wade affects everyone, not just women and girls or people of a certain background. It affects absolutely everyone. Nearly 1 in 4 women in the United States will have an abortion before age 45. (Source: Guttmacher Institute) Chances are, you know someone who has had an abortion. There is such a stigma and so much shame around it that so many people don't tell their stories. Be kind with the language you use to talk about this issue, you never know who's listening and what their story is.

If and when they become public companies, they become accountable to maximizing returns to shareholders. They've promised Wall Street outsized returns — which means Twitter can't lose bots if it would significantly lower their user count and in turn lower advertising revenue, and Uber can't treat their drivers like employees if it competes with profits.But what's the alternative?

    Monica Aggarwal, MD, is an adjunct Associate Professor in the University of Florida's Division of Cardiovascular Medicine where she conducts research on the impact of nutrition on chronic illness. She also serves as the Chief Medical officer of the not-for-profit, 4Roots Farm which is looking at how to improve food quality to improve human health. She received her medical degree from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine and subsequently went on to complete a residency in internal medicine at Tufts University Hospital in Boston, MA. She then completed a cardiology fellowship at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, MD. Dr. Aggarwal's own path to understanding the impact of nutrition on illness started soon after the birth of her third child when she developed an advanced form of rheumatoid arthritis. She was placed on medications that gave her severe side effects. It was only through learning about the microbiome (gut), its impact on the immune system, and the role of nutrition in affecting the gut that was she able to truly heal. Determined to change the face of medicine, Monica left private practice and returned to academics in order to pursue research on the role of diet and to create an integrative cardiology practice focused on nutrition and lifestyle. Dr. Aggarwal served as the Director of Integrative Cardiology and Prevention at the University of Florida for 4 ½ years during which time she was promoted to Associate Professor of Medicine. At the University of Florida, she focused on promoting food as the foundation of healing and for its medicinal value. In her clinic, she emphasizes plant-based nutrition and often performs multiple mind-body techniques with her patients, including yoga and meditation. At the University of Florida, she was also the Director of Medical Education for Cardiology, where she directed education for medical residents and cardiology fellows, with a focus on prevention, nutrition, and lifestyle. In the hospital, she has multiple initiatives including developing a 100% plant-based menu for cardiac and vascular patients. Dr. Aggarwal gives talks around the community, country, and internationally. She was named a Next Generation Innovator by Cardiology Today. She is often featured in Veg News, Naked Magazine, and forksoverknives.com. She conducts research on nutrition education in medical institutions and on how a plant-based diet impacts cardiovascular disease. She has published in major medical journals such as the Journal of American College of Cardiology and the American Journal of Medicine.

    The following question refers to Section 3.2 of the 2021 ESC CV Prevention Guidelines. The question is asked by student Dr. Hirsh Elhence, answered first by Mayo Clinic Fellow Dr. Teodora Donisan, and then by expert faculty Dr. Eugene Yang. Dr. Yang is professor of medicine of the University of Washington where he is medical director of the Eastside Specialty Center and the co-Director of the Cardiovascular Wellness and Prevention Program. Dr. Yang is former Governor of the ACC Washington Chapter and current chair of the ACC Prevention of CVD Section. The CardioNerds Decipher The Guidelines Series for the 2021 ESC CV Prevention Guidelines represents a collaboration with the ACC Prevention of CVD Section, the National Lipid Association, and Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association. Question #13 You are seeing a 45-year-old woman with a past medical history of hypertension, overweight status, hyperlipidemia, and active tobacco use disorder. Her BMI is 27 kg/m2, BP is 150/75, HbA1C is 5.8%, total cholesterol is 234 mg/dL, HDL is 59 mg/dL, and LDL is 155 mg/dL. She is from Romania, a country with very high CVD risk. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? A. LDL-C needs to be decreased by at least 50%, as small absolute LDL-C reductions would not provide clinical benefit B. Hypertension is not an important CVD risk factor in our patient, as she is young. C. Prediabetes is not a significant CV risk factor for our patient, as she is not yet diabetic. D. Smoking confers a higher CVD risk for women than for men. E. Her weight does not increase her CVD risk, as she is overweight rather than obese Answer #13 The correct answer is D – Smoking confers a higher CVD risk for women than for men. Prolonged smoking increases the CVD risk more in women than in men. Our patient is 45 years old. CVD risk in smokers < 50 years-old is 5x higher than in non-smokers. Of note, smoking is responsible for 50% of all avoidable deaths in smokers and a lifetime smoker will lose 10 years of life, on average. Secondhand smoke and smokeless tobacco can also increase the CVD risk. Option A is incorrect. The SCORE2 risk chart for populations at very high CVD risk places her at a 14% (very high) 10-year risk for myocardial infarction, stroke, or cardiovascular death. She would derive benefit even from incremental reductions in LDL-C values. The absolute benefit of lowering LDL-C depends on both the absolute risk of ASCVD and the absolute reduction in LDL-C, so even a small absolute reduction in LDL-C may be beneficial in high- or very-high-risk patients. Furthermore, the reduction in CVD risk is proportional to the decrease in LDL-C, irrespective of the medications used to achieve such change. This remains true even when lowering LDL-C values to < 55 mg/dl. Option B is incorrect. Hypertension is a major cause of CVD regardless of age, and the risk of death from either CAD or stroke increases linearly from BP levels as low as 90 mmHg systolic and 75 mmHg diastolic upwards. Particularly relevant for our patient, lifetime BP evolution differs in women compared to men, potentially resulting in an increased CVD risk at lower BP thresholds. Option C is incorrect. Type 1 DM, type 2 DM, and prediabetes are all independent risk factors for ASCVD. Of note, it would be important to address this risk factor with our patient, as women who develop type 2 diabetes have a particularly high risk for stroke. Option E is incorrect. All-cause mortality is lowest at a BMI on 20-25 kg/m2 in apparently healthy patients. Even overweight patients are at increased CVD risk. There is a linear relationship between BMI and mortality in non-smokers and a J-shaped relationship in ever-smokers. In patients with heart failure, a lower mortality risk has been observed with higher BMI – the “obesity paradox.” It would be important to evaluate the waist circumference in our patient, as both BMI and waist circumference are associated with ASCVD risk.

    The next sequel we are reviewing is "Piranha II: The Spawning” and for it, I interviewed Actress, Singer, and Activist Carole Davis. Carole grew up with her first love of singing where she was singing all over the world, but then after going to an audition just to support a friend, she was called in to audition and got it. The movie didn't matter because she chose most of her roles based on where they were being shot. Carole was in so many great movies like Mannequin, The Flamingo Kid, The Shrimp on the Barbie, and more. But, I also enjoyed hearing about her singing career which includes stories involving Prince, getting the job as singing the end credit song for "Love Potion no. 9" (I linked it below for you to listen to because it's awesome), and more. Amazing chat! This has an unedited video interview you can watch at sequelsonly.com/caroledavis Links mentioned in this episode: Carole's IMDb https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0204316/ Carole's Love Potion no. 9 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXUa2XhQjC0 Next up is our review of "Piranha II: The Spawning", which is free on Youtube, we watch the Director's Cut.
