This week we have some pretty deep dives to take and it's going to get hairy.We are going to talk about some of the new laws Gavin Newsom is putting into place in California including making it illegal for Stealthing (removing of a condom during sex) and many others. We also have the discussion about the "bullied" HS senior that is out on 75k bail. Why? Is Kyle R worth bringing up? Is this simply a single parent household issue or is it much more?The Southwest and Amtrak employee shortage... and whatever crazy crap comes up before then.

Everybody, Zoom's little computer woman just told me that recording is in progress, which means that we are here for another episode of Faster Than Normal. Thank you so much for joining me. I am in a super hyped up mood today. Uh, what wound up me being like starting, just to take my daughter to school this morning, we somehow wound up walking the three miles to school, uh, with the dog, and then I dropped the dog off at doggy daycare.. or storage as I call it, and I walked back. So I'm six miles in this morning and a high as a kite from that. So enjoy this dopamine fueled episode of Faster Than Normal! We have an amazing guest today, I know I said it all the time but this person, this is really cool. EJ Wenstrom is here. She's an award winning author. Why is she an award winning Author? We'll we'll talk about that but Listen to this: “One, girl, one angel three, God's determined to keep them apart! A stormy and seductive novella that will draw you into an elaborate fantasy world.. and it's a series. This shit is awesome. Reviewers love her: “Mimicking the brutal and strange of ancient mythology alongside the high fantasy and gut wrenching actions”, says Reader's Lane, while Literary Hill says: “In the third realm, perils await, but anything is possible and readers who venture, there will find a rewarding escape into a very creative and fully imagined world.” EJ believes in complicated heroes, horrifying monsters, Purple hair dye and standing to the right on escalators so that the left side can walk. God bless you for that. Yes. She writes dark speculative fiction for adults and teens, including the young dystopian novel Departures where the lead character or one of the characters has ADHD. I think it just gave something away. And the award winning Chronicles, a third realm series, starting with Mud when she isn't writing fiction. Ed wants some, she's just regular contributor to DIY MFA and book riot. She co-hosts the fantasy girl podcast. Start “The Chronicles of The Third Realm War” for free with a link HERE: We're going to put down below with her prequel novella, but holy cow, it is exciting to talk to you. EJ, welcome to Faster Than Normal! Thanks so much. I'm excited to be here! It was awesome- we got connected to our friend, our mutual friend, Laurie, who I've known for like 25 years has known me through the good and the bad of the last 25 years of my life, pre-diagnosis and post-diagnosis so I assume at some point she looked at you and said, holy shit, you're a female Peter! You guys should really meet. So it is wonderful to have you on the podcast. You are ADHD yourself. When did you get diagnosed and what was life like before it? Yeah. Yeah. I was diagnosed in high school, which is pretty typical, I think, especially for girls because we… differently. Typical nowadays- when I was in HS it was called sit down you're disturbing the class disease. Well, yeah, this was, this was late nineties, early two thousands. So, yeah. Yeah. But, um, but yeah, so before my diagnosis, I had gotten through most things perfectly fine because I was that quiet kid who was just not a problem. And, you know, To myself, in the corner. While other people were maybe going crazy over there. And, uh, so teachers loved that. You know, I got pretty good grades for the most part. Um, until about middle school when I switched, you know, where I was going to school and the format changed and everything else. And all of a sudden, some of the grades that I was getting in my best subjects, like Math, were just plummeting. They were just disastrous. And then around the same time I was getting like migraines. Cause you know, like your hormones are all changing. And so for a while there, we thought that the two were linked and it was kind of scary. Weird stuff going on, you get kicked around from doctor to doctor, to doctor. No one could quite figure it out until one person finally, the doctor said, have you gotten tested for any learning disorders? And it was a huge game changer. So that took place. I think it was my sophomore year of high school. And then all of a sudden we started looking at these symptoms for ADHD after my diagnosis. And it was like, uh, uh, like it was just, it was comforting honestly, to suddenly understand what was going on because the problem was never that I didn't know the material; the problem was.. turning in homework assignments and remembering what chapter I was supposed to read for class and just things like that. And, you know, look at my planner at the assignments were there was everything written out crystal clear, I just got mixed up somehow and did the wrong one. And it's, there was no explanation for it, but it just kept happening. And so it just made everything make so much more sense. Uh, we tried a few medications, which I stuck with through high school. And then since then I've actually gone without, and just found other ways to cope with my strengths and weaknesses and, uh, you know, kind of cover myself. But I, you know, I also did a little bit of ADHD coaching around that time. Did the whole section 508, all that, all that. And so, yeah, it's just. You know, crucial to understanding myself and then also a big part of my identity, honestly. Now let's talk about. Okay, so you're ADHD and you, you, you found ways to manage it. You're also a writer. Okay. And when you're writing these books, you have deadlines. So let's just dive right into it. Tell our listeners who are dying to know this; How are you managing your deadlines especially working on your own? Sure. You know, it's funny because with the Fiction I've actually lucked out so far in that my publishers have been very kind to me. I've not actually had to work on a hard deadline for a Fiction publisher, but, you know, I work in a public relations firm. I work, you know, I've done freelance writing before I've done all sorts of writing across the gamut, and yeah, stuff has deadlines and. You can't change those deadlines. You know, you've made commitments to clients. You've made commitments to, you know, people on your team, you can't change that. And, uh, you know, I think that really the, the ADHD and the way that my brain works with that has helped with deadlines or maybe the deadlines helped me and then, you know, having multiple plates spinning at once can be easier for me than just having one, uh, something about the pressure of it. As long as it's not too much, you know, there's always an edge to things, but having a little bit of pressure helps with the focus and it helps to be able to have a few things, to give attention to it once deadlines. Deadlines, themselves help. Because if you don't give me a deadline, I don't feel the same way. If you don't give me a deadline, I'll start working on whatever you want immediately until the next big thing comes along. And then that becomes the most important thing. Yup. Yup. And sometimes it's easy if there's not a deadline to just keep going deeper and deeper and deeper and never reach an end point because you just get lost in the, you know, like the exploration itself. So I've been working on something since 1987, but yeah, sure. Yeah. But, um, but the deadlines can really just help kind of lend that focus, but I've also learned a lot over the years about how to best use how my brain works. So I wake up at 5:00 AM in the morning, it's called 5:00 AM writer's club. You can check it out on Twitter. It's an amazing community of authors who are all up together writing before they do absolutely anything else in their day. And so you're, you're you're .. you're writing before you say exercise and before you anything else?? Yeah. Yeah. I, I wake up, I walk my dog quickly and then I opened my computer and I start reading whatever manuscript I'm on. And I check in with my author buddies on Twitter. There's a little bit of support and accountability to that. Also very helpful. And then I just get to work and I, I write for about probably an hour and a half most mornings, um, around that time. And it's really nice because I know that my brain is a little bit slower when I've just woken up. So it's easier to have just one thing that I'm trying to do. And especially when it's something that's a really long tail goal, like writing a novel, uh, that tends to take me about a year, maybe year and a half to do so it's not like you get that instant hit of gratification of checking something off of your list. It's, it's a nice time to be able to just sink into something as opposed to jumping task to task like I do, you know, later in the day and it gets me thinking creatively before my brain is tired from having been at work all day or going for a run or whatever else it might be. How are you getting? So tell me about how you're getting your dopamine when you're, when you're.. for me, if I'm writing, if I'm doing long periods, writing has to be in a confined space, like I'm on an airplane for 14 hours on my way to Asia, or I've just worked out, or I've just done a long run or a ride or whatever, and then, or a skydive. And then I have the dopamine in my system to, to, to go to town on writings, but you're doing it at 5:00 AM the second you wake up, that's amazing. Uh, yeah. Yeah. And I definitely do things to manage my energy. Like I, I hear what you're saying with that, but I do it in the evening. So I'll usually go for my run at the end of the day when my brain's tapped out. But I'm starting to feel like physically a little fidgety, so I'll eat dinner and then I'll head out. And, you're able to get your. My thing is if I don't, if I wake up and have to think about working out, I'm going to come up with a reason not to. So I, you know, I sleep in my running shorts. I wake up I'm on the bike or I'm on the I'm on the train or whatever. So I don't have to think about it. So you actually have the ability to, to think about it all day. No, you have to do it and still manage to do it. That's actually pretty impressive. I mean, I got to tell you, I don't even think about it until I shut my computer at the end of the Workday. And then. Yeah, and I mean, it's not perfect. It's not perfect, but it's so important to me to make writing the priority, to make sure that I do it every single day. You know, I used to run in the morning and decided I had to make a choice. And so that's the choice I made. Um, but yeah, I do a pretty good job with running all the same. So I usually get out the door and go for a run three to four days a week on, on weekdays and then once or twice more on the weekends. So it adds up to a pretty reliable routine. Awesome. Tell me about switching roles. So, you know, at. during the day your at a PR firm or advertising, whatever and then you come home and you're writing Fantasy Fiction. How what's..[???] And then you go to PR [..ah, here is is..} What's the switch in the brain's mindset to go from one to the other? That's a good question. Um, you know, I think there's maybe a difference between like when I'm writing Fiction I'm letting my brain wander. So it kind of taps into a lot of what, you know, especially having Inattentive ADHD. It's what my brain wants to do anyway. Whereas when I'm at work, I think it taps into some similar creative things, you know, working in PR a lot of it really does come down to what's going to be a compelling story to tell, but it's a much faster turnaround. So I'm hopping from one thing to the next, the next to the next, you know, often, many times an hour even, and so. It hits. I think there's a way to tap into that ADHD thing- where you want to just jump on everything at once. And it works really well for what I do at a firm. Uh, basically everything is happening all the time at once anyway. And so it becomes a real strength to be able to exist in that and be comfortable with it. Um, and so that's kind of where I get that. I mean, you talked about dopamine before. That adrenaline hit almost of like checking multiple things off your list and then kind of jumping around and getting that fresh project to tackle, uh, every half hour or so. Let's change topics. Tell me about Departures, because let me, I want to guys, I want to read you. I want to read you the, uh, the sort of, um, the, the blurb here for her for her novel Departures: “to get along in the directorate, just seek control, track your metrics and die when scheduled. That's where Evie went wrong”. So, okay. Number one, I'm going to go out and get this immediately cause this looks really pretty good, but tell me about the book. Sure. So I, the books started with the idea of a girl who just as the description, sounds like she wakes up in the morning and she's in a total panic because she was not supposed to wake up again. This was her departure date, the day she was scheduled to die. And so many of my book ideas come from that initial seed. So it's either like a character voice or like this was kind of like that initial hook for the that you, uh, start out with and then everything else has to be built out from there. And so I kind of tackle that sort of project very slowly over time and then layer things in. So at first I thought that was going to be that opening scene where the book would go and then I started to slowly. I wrote that scene, figuring it out the best I could. So like a skeleton version of the scene. And then from there, it's, it's called like a zero draft where you kind of write out the beats, capture what you can, as you go. Cause you kind of hit that creative flow. So you might hit full sections of dialogue or description or something where you get really deep into it. And then other sections are still just like, I don't know, I'll come back and figure this out later, something happens here where they make this discovery and.. you kinda get what you can out on the page, because then it's out in front of you and your brain space starts to open up for more. And so through that sort of process, I started to get into this world where it wasn't just about death dates, but everything about it was very carefully optimized, very carefully structured, so that everyone lived their best possible life by this particular government's definition. And so for them, that meant removing all pain, you know, kind of putting optimal, optimal levels around, you know, when people sleep, what people eat, uh, how much stress they allow into their lives, providing everybody with a fitness routine that helps them optimize their lives. And so over time that started to create a system where people live extremely long lives. And everything is very, very carefully managed on their behalf. And I, so when something goes wrong within this world, it's catastrophic. Um, and Evie, even though this meant for her that she was now able to live a longer life. You know, one of the really interesting points that came up over and over again is I was sharing this manuscripts with different, uh, critique partners with different editors and agents, was that people were struggling because Evie at first was more panicked about being alive than she was relieved. But I it's something I examined over and over again. And he really came to the conclusion that when this is kind of the doctrine that's embedded within you, your entire life, I think that rings true. You know, everyone's relying on the system to work all of the time and be, have their best interests in mind. And so if that doesn't work out, then what's going to happen to everyone. Uh, and it, it made for a really fun world to create and an even more fun world to break. It's very, very cool. Where can people find you and follow you? Cause this was, this is fascinating. I wanna have you back at some point, but we do keep the podcasts at 20 minutes, because you know, ADHD, um, so how do people find you?

Love love, love. We will throw the link into the show notes guys. This was.. God.. this is awesome. We do thank you so much. I'm totally going to.. EJ what's the age on the books? I feel like my daughter would love it, but she's only eight. Would she love it or should I wait a few years? Uh, you know, you might, it's kind of a parental discretion thing. Uh, for Departures, it's definitely written for you, a young adult audience. There's maybe some romantic themes that are a little bit advanced for an eight year old, but she also may not pick up on it. That would be your judgment call to make, but I would say it's written for like a 12 to 16 year old audience. Well, she came home yesterday and told me the three boys in the class asked to marry her so we're there!! Awesome, guys. This was phenomenal.

It's time for another potentially excellent episode of the Greatest Pod in The South starring Neal McCready of RebelGrove.com and Jay G. Tate of AuburnSports.com. Topics covered: • Jay's HS reunion is just a few weeks away now. Neal offers some tips and best practices. • Reviewing Week Six in the world of SEC football, which included a HUGE upset in College Station. • LSU lost, their star wideout is out for the season and Ed Orgeron's job security is slipping by the hour. Yikes. • Is LSU still a good job? Is Will Wade ever going to get penalized for coordinating player payments on an FBI wiretap? • Kentucky WON and now is up to 6-0 after summarily dispatching the Fightin' Ed Os. We know they're for real, but how much damage can the Cats actually levy this season? • Paul McCartney now says John Lennon actually broke up The Beatles, which doesn't surprise Neal because he didn't know why they broke up in the first place. • Octagenarian broadcaster Jim Kaat used an oddly specific term to refer to a Dominican player the other day and it was super cringy. • Dave Chappelle pissed some people off. Why is anyone surprised? That's his brand. • Brach's is hoping to augment holiday sales with a terrible decision to market Thanksgiving-themed candy corn. • Looking ahead to an interesting Week Seven in the world of SEC football.

A few weeks ago, I was in a contraption with a few folks my age and older who were voicing concerns about all the “information” kids get online. During that conversation, statistics were thrown around about how much data we're subject to. Apparently, every person creates something like 1.7 MB of data every second, which amounted to 2.5 quintillion data bytes per day. ThatIsA Lot At some point, someone said something about kids knowing too much. I don't remember the exact phrase but it was something along the lines of “it's just too much information. They're overwhelmed.” That.. gave me pause. Something about it rang true, but not entirely. You see, I wonder if the hang-up here isn't that there's too much to know; I wonder if it's that I feel responsible for caring about all of it... or even too much of it. And saying I don't care about everything can be a slightly troublesome thing to say. Because “everything” is a very long list and it includes things you might think are REALLY vital; maybe even essential. So, as I confess my limitation of care, I just might be telling you that I don't care about the things you care about the way you care about them or to the same depth… and now… now we might have a problem. And that… that's overwhelming; to feel like I have to overextend my care or even pretend to overextend my care in order to remain true to my tribe. What if I care about the hungry teens in Pleasant Hill / Martinez, CA who are sleeping in cars around the corner from their local HS instead of at home so they know they can get to school on time … but my heart isn't drawn to the clean water crisis in Sub-Saharan Africa?What if I spend the lion's share of my charitable, care time and energy in the area of child exploitation and human trafficking and, because I do, I don't know enough about trans persons or biology or the science in the mix? What if I don't care about what you care about? And what if it scares me to tell you that? What if it's not the amount of information available to us. What if it's the degree of responsibility we feel we have to have for that information; I don't have the time or energy or the resources to effectively and consistently care for more than a few things. That's just true… and I know it's true. I also know it's true that there are absences on (or from) my care list that have been disappointing to more than a few people. And that's been a point of stress at times; Moving the question from “what do I care about?”To “what should I care about?”Author and Missiologist Michael Frost gets a lot of questions that basically boil down to the question of care. Because he's in the field of teaching religious-minded about responsible “mission,” he regularly converses with folks who are searching the world around them for urgent needs to fill so that they can participate in the Grand Work of Redemption and Restoration. Rather than prescribe to folks attention to “that which matters most,” Michael turns the question towards people To whom are you called? Who will go with you? Michael redirects issue-focused conversations to the people whose actual, human, soft, and precious lives are affected, altered, damaged, or saved; the people whose fundamental value is the foundation of value for any and every “issue” or idea in all of human history. This is why I have been so richly blessed by David Dark's commitment to Reality. It is her complex and sacred humanity that is David's doorway into care for issues and ideas like criminal justice, responsible citizenship, and a more comprehensive expression of what it means to be “Pro-Life.” “To love a person” David has written, “is to love a process.” Yes. Also, to love a person is to enter into a world full of ideas and dilemmas and issues, but to find them in their proper context; encased in the soft, impermanent flesh of humanity.So…What if we're not so much overwhelmed by the amount of information available to us; what if we're simply distracted by it. And in our distraction, we lose touch with what enlivens us; what grounds us what makes any and all of the 2.5 quintillion daily data bytes worth a thing.That our hearts are not build to simply KNOW the world and those who live in it; we are built to care for the world and those who live in it…. So far as we are capable.

This is Season 2, Episode 40 for October 4, 2021, and our feature topic today is Ride It...or Skip It. For today's podcast we are looking at attractions at Walt Disney World and asking the question, do you ride it or do you skip it? What are your lists? Let us know in the comments! Now, here's the rundown of what we talked about: Updates from last week: Updates from last week:Regarding their favorite Deluxe/Deluxe Villa Resort, we had some additional responses!Cat writes: “Old Key West was huge and we liked it very much, but 3 BR villa at Bay Lake Towers is hands down our favorite. Park views (amazing at fireworks time) fireworks, spacious and open design, monorail access... absolutely wonderful”.Pam chimed in as well: “Boardwalk. Love theming, view of the Boardwalk. Excellent location between HS & Epcot. As well as convenient to multiple restaurants including those in Beach/Yacht club. And the Salon at the Beach Club.”Sheila said: “Bay Lake Tower especially with the Ellis family.”Cindy said: “Bay Lake Towers!”John chimed in: “Only have stayed at Saratoga Springs, Wilderness Lodge, and the Contemporary. Out of these three, Wilderness Lodge was my favorite. Loved the grounds and the boat transport to the campgrounds Contemporary and MK. Saratoga Springs much larger layout. Was in one of the quiet buildings. That was nice, but only time I can say I didn't like the walk, but it was really not too bad about 5 to 10 minute walk to the main building for food. Contemporary, loved the monorail. Got to meet my Captain there, Captain Hook. My best bud for the villains. I can't put my finger on it, but the Contemporary just was missing some of the magic. Don't know if it is just that it is one of the original resorts and feeling its age. Looking forward to GF and the Beach Club in the next 3 years.”Cheddar from the Big CheeseMike: Officially, as of October 1st, the “Neighborhoods” at Epcot will be official. As a reminder, there is World Discovery, World Celebration, World Nature (all part of the original Future World section) and World Showcase, which remains the same.

What a Creep: Alex Kelly Season 12, Episode 9 “The Preppy Rapist” Alex Kelly was considered a golden boy in his hometown of Darien, CT. Born to a wealthy family and growing up in a peak New England fancy neighborhood (meaning rich & white) he was good-looking, athletic, and popular. That all changed in February 1986 when the HS senior was arrested for suspicion of two rapes of girls in the span of four days. The Dairen police and district attorney decided to charge and try him for both at the same time which worried his family that he was being railroaded. So Alex decided to take off for parts unknown rather than face the consequences. Nine years later he was caught and brought back to trial. His story is bat shit insane and remains so to this day. He was dubbed “The Preppy Rapist” by the media much like Robert Chambers in 1986 was called “The Preppy Killer” for the killing of Jennifer Levin. The media works overtime to make white men likable. UGH! Trigger Warnings are sexual assault and delayed justice.

Paddy McGrath is an enigma in coaching circles. That's because it's not easy to find coaches, at least in the US, who in the same session, you will find teaching a beginner how to hold a hammer for the first time one moment and directing a long time protégé, American record holder & Olympian the next. But that happens where Paddy coaches, and it happens often. Paddy was a 2000 Olympian for Ireland in the hammer throw and six time national champion for Ireland. As a coach, he has mentored 7 high school men to over 70m in the hammer. One of these throwers, Rudy Winkler, went on to break Lance Deal's long-standing US Men's record in the hammer throw, earning a spot on the 2021 US Olympic Team in the process. For a full bio on Paddy's accomplishments click https://gojaspers.com/sports/mens-track-and-field/roster/coaches/patrick-mcgrath/1844 (here). Paddy and I did this interview in person, in an Irish bar in the Bronx, New York (of course… where else?). It is easily one of the most engaging talks I've had with a coach friend and colleague and Paddy did not disappoint. Topics: French Onion Soup, Gander (Newfoundland) & what we were doing on 911, dealing with Games Environments, 2012 Games, Paddy's background as an Irish Hammer Thrower, mentors Roman Feldman (assistant coach to Dr. B) & Harold Connolly, high school weight throw War Stories… Developing high school hammer throwers, Bob Gourley's HS hammer list, 4 vs. 3 turns… toe vs. heel turn entry, Rudy Winkler's progression, implement weight progressions in high school, Rudy's technical development, Starting beginners in the hammer throw, comparing cueing notes, maximal strength in the hammer, avoiding injury, “nothing gets in the way of throwing”, learning from Russians, planning for hammer training, strength training in hammer programming, VBT, Not ‘pressing' Rudy Winkler, Rudy's Eugene 2021 performance, the hammer facility in Eugene, preparing for big competitions, light vs. competition vs. heavy weight hammers in training, Kevin McGill's ‘Hammer Notes', potential for scholarships in hammer throwing, will coaching the hammer negatively influence SP & DT technique, The Fat Bastard of SC & expectations we put on our athletes, safety in the hammer.

Episode 802 | Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier answer caller questions. Show Notes CoreChristianity.com Questions in this Episode 1. In Ezekiel 47:12, it makes it seem that we will need healing in the New Creation. What does this mean? 2. We had a mass shooting a couple of days ago at a Kroger in Tennessee. My oldest son was walking in right in front of the shooter and had no idea he was coming in behind him. By God's grace he wasn't shot first, but the man next to him was. My son is not a born again Christian yet. He knows everything mentally but he just hasn't accepted Jesus yet. My question and request is for everyone listening to pray for him, that he is convicted on the HS doesn't quit pestering him until he is saved. And also if you have any suggestions how to help him, not only with his counseling, but so that he will beloved in the next few days? Thanks so much I really appreciate you and your show. 3. Why did God “send” an evil spirit in 1 Samuel 16:14? 4. Matthew 6:14-15 makes it seem like our forgiveness is dependent upon us forgiving others. Is that the case? 5. I'm working my way through Leviticus chapter 16 and I'm wondering how to reconcile the commandment to abstain from eating blood with the similar restraint shown in Acts chapter 15?

Jay sits down with former teammate and friend Josh McCown, a journeyman quarterback who played alongside Jay in Chicago. Jay dives into Josh's coaching on the high school level, and what he carries into his HS job from his years in NFL systems. And of course with two seasoned quarterbacks, they get into today's QB play in the NFL, and how spread offenses are an accepted standard in today's game, and guys like Lamar Jackson need to adapt to becoming a pocket passer to extend his career. And as Josh's son goes through recruitment he jokes about how wildly different it is from when he and Jay were recruited. Plus both Jay and Josh get into how they've tried to approach football with their kids, and when is the right time to get them into pads and tackle. And it wouldn't be complete without Jay and Josh joking about their ping pong battles in Chicago, and how they approached their games as they got later in their careers. Make sure to follow Jay on Twitter (@JayHasTweets) and on Instagram (@ifjayhadinstagram) for the latest on the show!
