Have you ever been so caught up in the process of creating something, you wind up losing sight of what you wanted as an end product? Hard work and ambition are admirable, especially when invested in the creation of new and exciting technologies. However, it is easy to get lost in the mechanics of work and to forget about the vision that inspired you to take up the mantle in the first place. In this episode, Alexander McCaig and Jason Rigby discuss the negative impact of the ongoing tech race on humanity—and how we can fix it. Are We Real-Life Inspector Gadgets?: Jason pointed out a discussion made by Aubrey Marcus that was pertinent to humanity's current situation. It was about how Inspector Gadget was dependent on his niece, Penny, to solve crimes and figure out cases. However, he always thought that he was the one responsible for saving the world when he created all sorts of new and complex technologies. Several parallels can be seen between humanity and Inspector Gadget. One is that despite our desire to foster peace and understanding, we do not approach such lofty goals with a concrete plan nor with small actions, we can commit to on a daily basis.  Another is in our obsession to constantly develop new and exciting technologies without a clear end goal in mind. Since the 1800s, when humans started experimenting with the implications of automating routine activities and making work more efficient, there has been a tendency to look at technology as a way to bring about heaven on earth.  However, utopia cannot be achieved just by perfecting the physical aspect of our world. It's also about the parts of our human experience that are not tangible, such as our understanding of one another. The work we put in research and development can easily become divorced from our understanding of each other, and of nature when we forget about using technology to co-create with nature and not around it. Technology Is Not the Key to Happiness: Why do we keep losing our way? According to Jason, it is because we believe that more tech automatically makes us more happy—even though there was never an assurance that increasingly sophisticated technologies would bring us more fulfillment.  If modern technology is being used to process and analyze data at the speed of light, why don't we turn to nature for inspiration more? Nature is constantly generating and giving data. The problem now is we are stuck churning out technology just for the sake of having it. When it comes to smartphones, it seems like we have plenty of new models to choose from every year. Plenty of people plan their finances around the next flagship device to be released, immediately letting go of the ones they just bought as they chase the next best thing. However, there was never a need to let go of so much tech. Their main function was to serve as tools for us to make better decisions, but not to hold our hand and teach us how to make these better decisions ourselves.  What's this extravagant tech race all about? What are we trying to reach for? Constructing the Tech Tower of Babel: Perhaps we invest in the latest technologies in the hopes that it can give us a deeper understanding of ourselves.  “We've had great advances in technology, but why has there not been a correlation of war and death going down? Why has human happiness not gone up? Right? Why have all these prevalent diseases increased?” Alex asked, “It's because we still lack understanding. The technology hasn't been designed to understand one another.” We could start using technology to start asking and answering difficult questions. Maybe we can finally compel ourselves to reflect on how there are aspects of our personality that are mirror images of what is happening around us; or how our thoughts are similar to the state of nature. We can look into the log of thoughts, behaviors, and actions that are produced by our devices to finally face the parts of ourselves that we've been trying to ignore. The TARTLE marketplace envisions a world where everybody has access to that deeper understanding. Anybody, regardless of their social status or location, can take responsibility for their part in changing the world.  Closing Thoughts: Standing in Solidarity: Amidst the pandemic, the call for isolation has had a massive effect on the human experience. We are similar to trees in that when we stand alone, the likelihoods of withering away are high. However, when we live in communes the way forests are made out of a society of trees, our individual identities and personalities help ensure our continued survival as a collective.  TARTLE is analogous to what is going on in the forest. It is composed of many people, with a wide variety of characteristics, personalities, and thoughts.

Welcome to the Aww Shift Podcast. In this episode, our guest is Mark Champagne. He is a Mental Fitness Practitioner who is obsessed with questions. He co-founded the journaling app (KYO) powered by prompts, which reached over 86 million people in under two years. Mark is also an author and host of the Behind the Human podcast, Top 50 in the Health category. Having studied people's minds like Kobe Bryant, Maya Angelou, Naveen Jain, and more, he decided to write a book profiling exceptional thinkers' questions and mental fitness practices. Today, he will share his insights about Questions and how having them daily can change our lives.   [8:16] Why should we listen to you? I would probably flip it around and start asking you questions by nature. What lights me up are questions and being curious about people's journeys and whatnot. I spent the last decade studying powerful questions and the mental fitness practices of people. I've done everything possible to figure out how to take that information and their story or their knowledge and flip it into questions so we can implement that in our life. That's probably what I would talk about. But I'd first start asking questions about what lights you up or what makes you smile each day.   [9:36] How did you get into the work that you do? I was in the corporate world doing my thing and was quite happy working in brand management and product management in the healthcare space. But what I was doing in that job was reading, learning, and getting into these mental fitness practices. I started picking up these practices, specifically around reflection and journaling. [11:03]  When I left the corporate world, I was journaling every morning. But I was getting frustrated with the available digital tools, and I decided to leave that job and start the app. It did really in the sense of the number of people we reached at 6.9 million App Store impressions in the first couple of years. I became obsessed with questions when we reached that amount of people. [12:55] I just deleted this app, this business, and my identity for the last three years because it financially failed. It wasn't until I asked what I wanted for my life that the motivation started to come back because that question led to the next. That's why I'm passionate about questions. I think we're all of us. No matter what we're doing, we're all one question away from a completely different life. What lights me up is trying to help people, not give them questions because we're all unique and different, but help people with the mental fitness practices and framework to find that question that they need right now in their lives.   [14:59] How is it that asking questions led to where you are now? I think the reason I like questions is that it offers us the pause that most of us don't take because we're on autopilot, and we're just running our day every day. A good question allows us to pause. [16:55] Cal Fussman would never start a story or start writing a story with a blank mind. He would fire up his computer. If he didn't have something, to begin with, he would write down the question and say, “What do I want to say?” And he'd go to bed. The first thing he would do when he would wake up is answer that question. It's just another way to use questions. And to tap into that intuitive sense. We have the answers, and we need to pull it out of the fog that's surrounding our minds with thoughts and relationships. [19:08] Questions and Negotiations Some of the questions I ask myself are what am I negotiating with myself constantly consistently. If that comes up, then you can use some practices or some mental fitness. One of the examples I use in that one is Mel Robbins' 5 Second Rule. That's a great way to get up out of bed. It's just 54321 and out, just no negotiation. Just get out and start your day. [20:39]  For me, questions provide that pause. And they're just millions of different options or variations of these prompts. But what I've noticed is that it doesn't matter who you are. We're all asking questions. And they're either good ones, or they're not so good one. My whole thing is finding that question that is well-timed because it needs to be well-timed. And that resonates with someone and provides that pause for you to make a decision. [21:31] Why did you write your book? This is my life, and this is what I've been doing. For the last decade now, it showed up in some capacity in an app format that ended up reaching a lot of people. Now, the format has morphed, and I took those learnings from the app, and now it's in book format. But the principles and the idea behind it is are very similar.   [22:24] The Socratic Method I knew of Socrates. But that's kind of as far as my knowledge. When I dug into it, I noticed that this whole method of asking questions, clarifying questions, and question after question, has been around for hundreds of years, if not more. So it's proven to work. But I noticed that it's always discussed in an academic setting. [23:24] The idea with what I wanted to do with the book was I know the power of questions. We can leverage many different mental fitness practices to deploy these questions into your routines and rituals. But how do we use the backbone of the Socratic method and update that and modernize it? So it's easy to think about that. And that's what the book is. It's broken down into three parts instead of the six big Socratic method questions. [24:11] Part one is all about questions to help seek clarity. The second part dives into living intentionally. So questions to help you focus on and borrow some of the stuff from the book from Ryan Holiday and stoicism. And then the third step is unlocking exponential opportunity. Because now when you can see and you're doing the things aligned to your work and your life and whatnot, then all of a sudden you start seeing an opportunity, and stuff starts to happen. [26:58] What promise did God make to the world when He created you? To show up daily with a smile. Be happy and try to leave that to other people on the other side, whether listening or in conversation. That's what lights me up.   Key Quotes: [13:26 – 13:31] “All of us, no matter what we're doing, we're all one question away from a completely different life.” [17:22 – 17:30] “We have the answers. We need to pull it out of the fog that's typically also surrounding our mind with thoughts and relationships.” [20:00 – 20:06] “It's harder to not do anything than it is to do it because then I got to live with the fact that I'm now out of line with who I chose and said I was going to be.” [25:28 – 25:40] “See if you resonate with the person or the question and just follow your intuition because that's the question that will resonate with you most in terms of what you need right now in your life.” Learn more about Mark Champagne on: https://bio.site/qtiGsn Website: https://www.behindthehuman.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/marc-champagne-14767b17/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/marcchampagne Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/behindthehuman

Support the show to get full episodes and join the Discord community. Anil and I discuss a range of topics from his book, BEING YOU A New Science of Consciousness. Anil lays out his framework for explaining consciousness, which is embedded in what he calls the "real problem" of consciousness. You know the "hard problem", which was David Chalmers term for our eternal difficulties to explain why we have subjective awareness at all instead of being unfeeling, unexperiencing machine-like organisms. Anil's "real problem" aims to explain, predict, and control the phenomenal properties of consciousness, and his hope is that, by doing so, the hard problem of consciousness will dissolve much like the mystery of explaining life dissolved with lots of good science. Anil's account of perceptual consciousness, like seeing red, is that it's rooted in predicting our incoming sensory data. His account of our sense of self,  is that it's rooted in predicting our bodily states to control them. We talk about that and a lot of other topics from the book, like consciousness as "controlled hallucinations", free will, psychedelics, complexity and emergence, and the relation between life, intelligence, and consciousness.

Dan Pink is the author of several New York Times bestsellers—Drive, To Sell is Human, When, and A Whole New Mind—in which, broadly, he examines topics like creativity, work, and humanity. In this episode, we discuss topics relating to today's healthcare system, distilling major criticisms and proposed solutions. Among the problems discussed are defensive medicine, physician burnout, and incentives built into US health insurance. Methods to alleviate these problems, Dan suggests, "re-igniting physicians' passion for their scientific work" To conclude our discussion, Dan and I explore the possibilities of AI in medicine—and how this technology could free physicians to practice more creatively and holistically. If doctors' time is freed up from diagnosis of diabetes, but she still meets with the patient, she can actually get to the contextual and systemic things that might be surrounding that diabetes. For instance: the person is lonely, doesn't have a lot of friends, is cut off from social connections…and, as a consequence of that, is not eating well.” Addressing these factors, Mr. Pink says, represents the greatest (if least glamorous) “opportunity to help people to be healthy.” To learn more about Dan's work, follow him on LinkedIn, Twitter, or his personal website, which includes articles, videos, and interviews.

Why Data Is Absolutely Necessary for the Evolution of Humans Part 2

How many times have we been placed in uncomfortable situations, and in which ones can we confidently say that we had the knowledge we needed to exit the circumstance with grace? Sometimes, our minds take shortcuts when we need to work through complex problems so that we do not overburden ourselves— but when we start relying on ducking into the side alleys to get to the destination, we do not get a full perspective of what we are truly dealing with. In this episode, Alexander McCaig and Jason Rigby discuss the harmful tendency to live lives within our little bubbles, comfort zones, and echo chambers. They point to how data can show us the ultimate truth and the objective reality—and why we need to start paying attention. Zero and the Inter-Dimension: Right off the bat, Alexander and Jason kickstarted the discussion by comparing the function of our choices to the number line, with zero as the space where there is no value. The positives lie to the right dimension of zero, while the negatives make up the left dimension. This makes zero, as the middle point, an inter-dimension of sorts. We choose to pivot one way or another when faced with difficult events and circumstances in life. However, we may not always have the full capacity to make the best-informed choice. It is human nature to sit within our own comfort zones and echo chambers, because we like information that validates us and exchanges where we know what to do. Our best solution lies in harnessing the power of data. Regardless of religion, political affiliation, or social class, data is capable of making us question the distorted lens we view reality with. We have the opportunity to hold ourselves responsible for our thought processes and interactions with the help of data, instead of continuing to live our lives in a passive manner.  It is difficult to face the reality that we may not be making the most out of our lives now. After all, procrastination is a natural human instinct.  “When you stagnate and you don't afford yourself new catalysts. It's like you're working with the same old data set every single day. What's there to be learned? The data sets [have] stopped.” Alexander explained.  Data as the Ultimate Truth: We underestimate the power of an objective and apolitical observer in our lives, which is what data represents. It captures our thoughts, actions, and perceptions— even the ugly parts of us that are distorted. This could be caused by a subconscious adherence to tradition, lifestyle, beliefs, values, ignorance, and others.  These misconceptions affect our openness to other people. We may become upset because they do not follow the same thought processes or behavioral patterns we do. In the long term, it could isolate us from other people or communities because it feeds into an us versus them mentality.  A lack of self-awareness does not just have an impact on our quality of life, or the lives of those around us. We slowly become vulnerable to the whims of more influential figures, who do not have any qualms with exploiting the minorities and pandering to the needs of the masses for personal gain.  Since data represents the ultimate truth, we need to harness its power for ourselves. It can empower us to make better decisions on so many levels. We deserve the truth and the ability to make better choices. Closing Thoughts: Overcoming Cognitive and Personal Bias: While the capacity to make better choices is a reward in and of itself, it can now be an opportunity to be financially compensated as well. The TARTLE marketplace is a way for us to earn from contributing to the ultimate truth. It is a platform that encourages us to be more collaborative over authentic information.  We are in need of tools and platforms that give us the opportunity to see beyond ourselves. It is time for us to take a step forward. Understanding the truth behind our circumstances gives us a glimpse of what is timeless, of the objective reality around all of us. We no longer need to think in abstractions or to bend over backwards to justify our emotions when we can be energized by what is present in the here and now.

Philosophers have long pondered the concept of a brain in a jar, hooked up to a simulated world. Though this has largely remained a thought experiment, CrowdScience listener JP wants to know if it might become reality in the not-too-distant future, with advances in stem cell research. In the two decades since stem cell research began, scientists have learned how to use these cells to create the myriad of cell types in our bodies, including those in our brains, offering researchers ways to study neurological injuries and neurodegenerative disorders. Some labs have actually started 3D printing stem cells into sections of brain tissue in order to study specific interactions in the brain. Human brain organoids offer another way to study brain development and diseases from autism to the Zika virus. So, might stem cell research one day lead to a fully-grown human brain, or is that resolutely in the realm of science fiction? If something resembling our brains is on the horizon, is there any chance that it could actually become conscious? And how would we even know if it was? Host Marnie Chesterton takes a peek inside the human brain and speaks with leading scientists in the field, including a philosopher and ethicist who talks about the benefits – and potential pitfalls – of growing human brain models.

Why Data Is Absolutely Necessary for the Evolution of Humans Part 1

Tcast

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 15, 2021 16:35


One common misconception of data is that it is out of reach for many of us: a confusing mixture of encrypted numbers, letters, and other symbols that do not really hold any significance for the general populace. However, recent developments have translated these massive repositories of data and made it possible for us to access that only media conglomerates have had before. As a result, we also have access to parts of ourselves that we used to take for granted or outgrow, in the past. We have a renewed perspective on individual thoughts and behaviors. The data we have on why individuals think or behave a certain way can help us unravel these complex issues at a fundamental level, and we can work on improving ourselves from the grassroots. The TARTLE marketplace is an avenue for people to give voice to these thoughts by turning it into data. Beyond the opportunity to earn from your personal experiences, you can also use the platform to work for a bigger cause that is important to you. Furthermore, it is not just you helping others but also about the potential for others to help you as well. The beauty of data is that it can be used for analysis in several different ways. If you do not have the tools or capacity to extract these insights for yourself just yet, then you can work with data professionals on the platform who can do it for you. How Data Encourages Us to Look Inward: The tech revolution has changed the way we interact with the physical world. We use artificial intelligence and machine learning to reprogram our transportation systems, financial services, social media, and more. However, these are developments that build on the external features of our existence. We have yet to look at how we can capture data at a primary level: our thoughts.   Collective intelligence has empowered people to speak up for themselves regardless of who they are and where they are located, and communities can band together to start creating tribes of thought. These groups can be measured and analyzed, with data scientists using their findings to adjust the direction at which the tech revolution progresses. Beyond that, it also allows the people within those tribes to become more self-aware about their individual wellbeing. These data deposits have insights on what they are locally challenged with, which means that people can look into how or why they are affected: what triggers the event, what exacerbates it, and what they can do to manage these thought processes in a healthy manner. As a community, data is the key to showing different communities how their perceptions or preconceived biases lead to trouble within their locality. It serves as the bridge to solving these problems and finding understanding amongst different groups.  Clearly, data is more than just a catalyst for the hard sciences. It is our way of advancing in the social sciences as well. We can take that power for ourselves and analyze the data to improve our quality of living as individuals, communities, and as humanity. Life After Death With Data Sets: At the rate we are going, most of our life experiences are captured and stored in the digital space. In terms of speed, consistency, and accuracy, it's clearly the superior way of retaining human knowledge in comparison to word of mouth and paper. There is no need to worry about human error or the cost of maintaining a printing press.  It is interesting to think that data, which is intangible and stored in a virtual space, is derived from physical events and goes on to influence physical events as well. Data is a medium capable of capturing experience, thought and life—even long after the data source passes away.  What are the implications of this on the human experience? Having most of our lives recorded in data packets means that we can continue to have an impact on future generations in more tangible ways. Our lives on earth have more potential to have a bigger impact even after our passing, because our data perseveres beyond the memories of our family, friends, and written documents.  Closing Thoughts: Data and Its Effect on Human Consciousness: Alex mulled over his belief of a future where everything is captured by technology. All our actions and decisions are subject to analysis, down to the smallest details—and the people on the ground are directly sharing in the experience of this analysis. With so much information in humanity's hands, our future selves may feel pressured to take on the responsibility of using this data for the better.  Do we have it in us to actively work on the pursuit of decisions, activities, and experiences that increase our lifespan— and by consequence, increase the probability of us evolving at a more accelerated rate? Only time will tell. Without us knowing, the technologies we use collect crucial information about our life experiences on a day-to-day basis.

Human-Centered Communication: A Business Case Against Digital Pollution by Ethan Beute and Stephen Pacinelli About the Book: Digital pollution is the problem. Human-centered communication is the solution. We're spending more time than ever in virtual environments. That will only increase, as will the amount of noise we encounter there. The seemingly endless series of unwelcome digital distractions range from frustrating to dangerous. As individuals and businesses, we not only spend time and energy managing this digital pollution, we often create it. At risk are relationships and revenue. The only viable way forward is to be more thoughtful, intentional, and personal. Human-Centered Communication provides a philosophy and practice to help you connect in more meaningful and effective ways with prospects, customers, team members, and every stakeholder in your success. Learn to: Break through the noise and earn attention Build trust and create engagement Enhance your reputation with both people and algorithms The concepts and models in this book apply to any form or channel of communication, but human centricity favors video.

WOMEN SIPPING ON LIFE (with doctor shannon) | Stop Drowning | Start Sipping | Daily Inspiration | Hope | Certainty | Abundanc

It's about redefining GOOD and great. Good is part of great. So how do you go from good to great? Human nature has this way of making us focus on the one “good” versus all the great. Why is that? Do you catch yourself doing this often in your own life? When it's good, does it have to be great? What would make it great? We look at our lives, and oftentimes forget to be grateful for the great because we're focusing on the good. OR we forget to be grateful for the good because we're comparing it to GREAT (or our definition of what we think GREAT "should be.") TRUTH is what makes "GREAT." Feedback is good, but remember it's only FEEDBACK. Look at what you desire, and clearly define (redefine) what would make it great for you. Let's not forget the 5-Star experiences because we're focusing on the 4-Star ones, nor overlook the 4-Star ones because we're comparing them to others. Does better make BEST? Does it make GREAT? Nope. Knowing the TRUTH does. It's what allows us to live in freedom. And freedom is both good AND great! TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: 1.

Today we talk with Dr. William Hsu and his insights into the 5 day fast mimicking diet. He discusses the 3 types of fasting, the significance of our circadian cycles, and the importance of fasting in order to activate significant longevity mechanisms which help promote our overall well being. Hosts: Dr. Mark Young // Dr. Jeffrey Gladden Guest: Dr. William Hsu Highlights from the podcast: (0:55) Introduction (1:51) It's not because of what we know but about what we're asking and how we go about learning. (2:02) Dr. Gladden highlights The common underlying question seems to be, “Can I get back to where I was, health wise?” (4:00) Understanding the game that we're in. (8:25) In the practice of addressing all of these elements people are getting and feeling better overall more so than they have in the past. (9:10) Introducing Dr. William Hsu, Endocrinologist and graduate from Harvard (10:00) Dr. Hsu begins discussing “The Fasting Mimicking Diet” (12:40) Fasting has in large part been overlooked in the medical field.

When do we eat (Has an impact on our health) and what do we eat (nutrient composition)? Circadian rhythm. (18:20) The body has an internal mechanism that tells us when to eat and when not to eat. (18:35) Illumination has changed our behaviour. (19:55) Obesity creates resistance to lupton secretary hormone that signals the body when to stop eating. (21:30) The science of Fasting began perhaps 20 or 25 years ago. (22:22) What are the molecular mechanisms that connect nutrition, fasting, and longevity?

Human beings are primates, and primates are political animals. Our brains, therefore, are designed not just to hunt and gather but also to help us get ahead socially, often via deception and self-deception. But while we may be self-interested schemers, we benefit by pretending otherwise. The less we know about our own ugly motives, the better - and thus, we don't like to talk, or even think, about the extent of our selfishness. This is "the elephant in the brain".  Such an introspective taboo makes it hard for us to think clearly about our nature and the explanations for our behaviour. The aim of this book, then, is to confront our hidden motives directly - to track down the darker, unexamined corners of our psyches and blast them with floodlights. Then, once everything is clearly visible, we can work to better understand ourselves: Why do we laugh? Why are artists sexy? Why do we brag about travel? You won't see yourself - or the world - the same after confronting the elephant in the brain. We welcome the author of a multitude of titles including the focus for today's episode: “The Elephant in the Brain: Hidden Motives in Everyday Life” Robin Hanson.

The British Columbia Foot Problem

Midnight Train Podcast

Today on the train we're switching up gears a bit. Tonight we are discussing British Columbia's foot problems. Did you know that the most common foot problem in British Columbia and actually the world is athlete's foot? Well it's true! The feet are made of up 26 bones each, making them one of the most intricate areas of the body. Nevertheless, according to the College of Podiatry, a person will walk an estimated 150,000 miles in their lifetime, roughly the equivalent of walking around the world six times. Improper footwear, diabetes, and aging are some of the chief contributors to foot problems. Bunions are another of the biggest four problems. Bunions are abnormalities of the feet that cause a bump to develop on the large toe joint. This can cause the big toe to turn slightly inward. Doctors call bunions “hallux valgus.”   Women are more likely to have bunions due to increased pressures from narrow footwear. Wait...I think I got the wrong notes… What are we talking about? Oh… Shit… Yes, the British Columbia foot problem… Sorry, it had nothing so with actual foot problems. If you know it's… It is much stranger and a bit more macabre than bunions… Maybe… Bunions are gross.    So the British Columbia foot problem… What exactly is it? Well when most people go to the beach they are on the lookout for cool shells, maybe some crabs or other animals, good looking ladies and gents, but on the shores of the Salish sea, in the Pacific northwest, people are on the lookout for something else… Human feet. Yep… Human feet.    On August 20, 2007, a 12-year-old girl spotted a lone blue-and-white running shoe—a men's size 12—on a beach of British Columbia's Jedediah Island. She looked inside, and found a sock. She looked inside the sock, and found a foot. That in and of itself, while kinda gross, isn't necessarily a really strange thing. But Six days later on nearby Gabriola Island, a Vancouver couple enjoying a seaside hike came across a black-and-white Reebok. Inside it was another decomposing foot. It, too, was a men's size 12. The two feet clearly didn't belong to the same person; not only were the shoes themselves different, but they both contained right feet.   Police were stunned. “Two being found in such a short period of time is quite suspicious,” Garry Cox of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police told the Vancouver Sun. “Finding one foot is like a million to one odds, but to find two is crazy. I've heard of dancers with two left feet, but come on.”   So now we've got something weird going on right… Well maybe but let's not jump the gun….ok let's jump the gun. In the following year, 2008, five more feet were found on the shores of the islands of British Columbia in the Salish Sea.    Needless to say people started freaking out. Speculation came from everyone. Ranging from plane crashes and ship wrecks to serial killers, to aliens. Moody thinks it was all people who pissed off sasquatch.    All in all as of January 1st 2019, 21 feet have been found in total. So what is going on up there? Well let's take a look at the first and see if that helps.    The ass says before the first four was found in Augusta 2007. According to an article on the Vancouver Sun,  a girl visiting from Washington picked up a size 12 Adidas shoe and opened the sock to find a man's right foot. What a vacation! They ended up finding out that The remains were those of a missing man suffering from depression. There's not much known about the man other than that. The family never revealed much.    Within a week, on August 26, 2007, another foot was found. A man's right foot, discovered by a couple, also disarticulated due to decay. It was waterlogged and appeared to have been taken ashore by an animal. It probably floated ashore from the south. According to the Vancouver Sun again. This foot was found in a size 12 Reebok shoe. It was obviously a different person due to the site you're and the fact it was another right foot.    February 8, 2008, number 3 popped up. It was another right foot belonging to a man. This time on a size 11 Nike.  May 22, 2008 number 4. This time it was a woman's foot that was found. And yes we're 4 for 4 on the right feet. CBS news reported The fourth foot was discovered on an island in the Fraser Delta between Richmond and Delta, British Columbia. It was also wearing a sock and sneaker. the shoe was a new balance. It is thought to have washed down the Fraser River, having nothing to do with the ones found in the Gulf Islands. According to our friends at the Vancouver sun.   June 16th, 2008 two hikers came across number five. CBS news reported that it was a man's  left foot. It was found floating in the water in Delta. According to cbs, It has been confirmed that the left foot found on June 16 on Westham Island and the right foot found February 8 on Valdes Island belonged to the same man. We have a match!!!   So number 3 and number 5 are a match!   Number six showed up on August 1, 2008. This was the first one not found in British Columbia, it was found near Pysht, Washington. According to CTV news, it was confirmed that the foot was human. Police say the large black-top, size 11 athletic shoe for a right foot contains bones and flesh.The RCMP and Clallam County Sheriff's Department agreed on August 5 that the foot could have been carried south from Canadian waters.   November 11, 2008, number 7. a A shoe that was found floating in the Fraser River in Richmond.The shoe was described as a small New Balance running shoe, possibly a woman's shoe. New balance eh? Sound familiar? A woman's new balance. Well it should because the foot was linked via DNA testing to foot number 4. They belonged to the same woman. Eventually it would be known that this woman jumped from the Pattullo Bridge in New Westminster in April 2004. This one was seemingly a suicide.    Number 8 come on down, your the next contestant on Who's Foot Is This! October 27, 2009A right foot in a size 8½ Nike running shoe on a beach in Richmond. The remains were identified as a Vancouver-area man who was reported missing in January 2008. The Vancouver Sun gave us this info… shocker we know.    Number 9. A woman's or child's right foot was found on Whidbey island on August 27 2010, without a shoe or sock. This foot was determined to have been in the water for two months. Detective Ed Wallace of the Island County Sheriff's Office released a statement saying the foot would be tested for DNA. However, there was no match found in the national DNA database. Guess where we got this info from...WRONG… CBS news.. Hahaha got ya bitches!   On December 5th 2010 we reach#10. Ten fucking feet found.. only two matching pairs.    This was another one found outside, but near British Columbia. It was found in the tidal flats in Tacoma Washington. Sadly this one likely belonged to a young boy. The boot was a boys size 6 hiking boot. Thanks Vancouver Sun.   Hey Vancouver Sun any info on number 11? Oh you do? Well let's hear it.  On August 30, 2011, in a man's size 9 running shoe. It was a blue and white shoe. It was found floating next to the Plaza of Nations marina, attached to the lower leg bones. Yuck. Investigators said that there wasn't any sign of foul play though and the leg was naturally disarticulated due to decomposition in the water. The sex of this victim was not determined.    Hey guys, guess what, there's more.. Shall we press on?    November 4, 2011 number 12 is found. A man's right foot inside a size 12 hiking boot was discovered by a group of campers in a pool of fresh water at Sasamat Lake near Port Moody. Fucking Moody. A year later this foot was identified by the B.C. Coroner's Service as that of Stefan Zahorujko, a local fisherman who went missing in 1987. Again foul play was not expected as chickens are generally not able to remove the feet of humans.    Lucky number 13, well not so lucky in this case. This one brings us back to the states. Lake Union in Seattle to be more specific. Human leg bone and foot in a black plastic bag under the Ship Canal Bridge. As of January 2, 2012, the medical examiner had not found a cause of death or identified the body. This one sounds nice and shady. Also where the fuck were you on this one Vancouver Sun, we had to get this info from the Seattle times.. Jeeze.   Anyway, back to Vancouver. January 26, 2012 number 14 is found. According to, of course, the Vancouver Sun, On January 26, 2012, the remains of "what appears to be human bones inside a boot" were found in the sand along the water line at the dog park near the Maritime Museum at the foot of Arbutus Street, in Vancouver. This one doesn't show up in some of the stories about this issue only because it seems that they never confirmed it was human. At least not that we could find, which is strange. But… Whatever.   According to fox news "Adding to one of the great mysteries of the Pacific Northwest, a human foot still in a tennis shoe was found near Seattle's Pier 86 Tuesday." Tuesday was may 6 2014, and this was number 15. "It could be debris from Japan. It could be debris from the airplane that had crashed into the water. I wouldn't be surprised,” resident Karen Klett said. Volunteers cleaning up trash made the discovery and immediately called police.A local expert on tides told Q13 Fox News the feet could be local or they could come into the Sound by way of the Strait of Georgia in Canada or the Strait of Juan de Fuca here at home. The New Balance model 622 athletic shoe was white with blue trim, size men's 10½. It was A left foot.    Ladies, do you remember your sweet sixteen? Was it memorable? Did you get a car?  Big party? Severed foot? Wait… What? Well number 16 was found February 7, 2016. Hikers on Botanical Beach, near Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island, found a foot in a sock and running shoe. We could not find any information on if this one was ever identified.   She's only 17...SEVENTEEN! Only five days after number 26 was found… Number 17 popped up. On February 12, 2016 A foot washed up near Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island. This foot was found to match the one that washed up 5 days before.    Now to number 18. Almost there folks! The discovery was made by a man walking his dogs along the beach at around 8 a.m. along the Jordan river again on Vancouver Island. One of the dogs found the foot.    Number 19 was found May 6, 2018 on gabriola Island in British Columbia. Around noon, a man walking along the shore near South Road found a foot inside a hiking boot stuck in a logjam.   Number 20. September 20, 2018. The foot was found  within a light grey Nike Free RN shoe on the shore near the 30th Street beach access point in West Vancouver.   The size 9.5 shoe was manufactured between February 1 and April 17, 2017, and has a white base and a black Nike swoosh. The foot was in a blue sock. The test revealed that the foot belonged to a male.   The B.C. Coroners Service's identification specialist believes that the foot belonged to a man under the age of 50, based on its bone structure.   According to the West Vancouver Police Department, there is no evidence of a death from foul play at this point. DNA testing would eventually link this to a male who went missing in 2018.     Number 21 was another one that was found in the US. January 1, 2019 it was found on jetty Island in Everett Washington. The foot was found in a bit and DNA later linked it to Antonio Neill. At the time of the identification officials shockingly attenuated that Neill was presumed dead. His mother Jenny Neill believes someone harmed her son.   “We are no closer to finding what happened to him,” she said Tuesday. “We have had a lot of leads that are just rumors. We feel that someone is responsible for this, and we need help finding whoever did this.” He'd been staying in his car or on couches in 2016. Around the time he went missing, his car was stolen. Antonio was 22 when he went missing. His mother has seen no evidence confirming he was alive after December 2016.   Ok so those are the feet that have been found. We will post a picture that shows locations, and another with a little more info on the people they may have belonged to. Many of the get have been linked to missing people, and a couple to suicide. But aside from those suicides, what happened to those linked to missing people.    Theories range far and wide. From plane crashes, to human trafficking, aliens, and yes… Bigfoot.    One early suggestion was the quadra Island plane crash. The locations each of the first give feet were found in the first year seems to indicate they were from the similar sources (via body decomposition) and the time of discovery Oceanographists determined no known currents could have contributed to the spread. Detectives at the time had theorized the feet came from the 5 person fatality Quadra Island plane crash that occurred approximately 60–90 miles northwest in 2005 . The image below shows the locations of the five feet found in 2007–2008 with the location of the Quadra Island plane crash in Blue. It is likely that some of the feet originate from this plane crash, but there is no proof to date that this is the case; four bodies remain unrecovered. At first, the Quadra Island plane crash makes sense regarding the origin of said feet, but later DNA testing showed one of the feet was female, with the plane crash victims (5 total) were all men.    Other theorists believe the coastline is being used as a body dump for organized crime activity; a third scenario is a serial killer is at work.   In the past few years, more than 20 men in the Vancouver area have gone missing. Their disappearances have never been accounted for despite pleas from families for information.    There is a faction of the public who believe that many of these discoveries are due to alien abduction and that of course the fact is being covered up. There may be some evidence to back up this claim! Ufology Research, an organization  in Canada,  has collected and analyzed Canadian UFO report data since 1989. Their 2017 survey showed that a total of 1,101 sightings were reported across the country, at a rate of roughly three per day — the fifth highest number since the group began collecting data in 1989. The survey also showed that there was an average of two witnesses per UFO sighting and that the sightings lasted about 15 minutes each. Many witnesses were police officers, pilots and other people with keen observational skills. In 2017 British Columbia had the third most reported UFO sightings in Canada. Hmmm maybe… Just maybe there's something to this.   Then again maybe not. 10 out of the 15 feet have been identified as belonging to people who died either accidentally—by falling off a boat or being swept away by a large wave—or by suicide. but what about the rest?     The location of the feet washing up isn't that that strange actually. Given the tidal currents of the area it actually makes sense that the feet are collecting in the area. It's seems the bigger mystery is what happened to all of those other people but identified? ….. …… …...   Top ten Canadian horror movies according to imdb   https://screenrant.com/best-canadian-horror-films/ BECOME A P.O.O.P.R.!! http://www.patreon.com/themidnighttrainpodcast   Find The Midnight Train Podcast: www.themidnighttrainpodcast.com www.facebook.com/themidnighttrainpodcast www.twitter.com/themidnighttrainpc www.instagram.com/themidnighttrainpodcast www.discord.com/themidnighttrainpodcast www.tiktok.com/themidnighttrainp   And wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.   Subscribe to our official YouTube channel: OUR YOUTUBE   Support our sponsors www.themidnighttraintrainpodcast.com/sponsors   The Charley Project www.charleyproject.org

Not too long ago I had a listener reach out and ask if I'd do an episode about navigating divorce. Her parents had just announced theirs, and this listener found herself lost in this new space. I promised her I would. I promised because there were so many times early in my parents' divorce, and even now, 18 years later, when I wished I would have been able to hear someone else's story, when I wanted to feel less alone, when I needed help better understanding and better navigating what was going on. Rather than just share my personal experience and what I've learned over the last nearly two decades, I've invited my friend Dr. Matt Townsend to help guide this discussion and offer his expert advice for not just navigating divorce as the child or parent when it happens, but also for navigating our relationships before it even becomes a possibility. So today, this episode is for that listener, and hopefully it helps many others.For more than two decades, Dr. Matt Townsend has been energizing and educating audiences with his unique lessons on life, love and leadership.

Gloria Allred steps Behind The Rope. No, you are not seeing things. Living Legend! Icon in the flesh! Trailblazer! The most well known, bad a** Civil Rights attorney to ever exist in the world was kind enough to grace us with her presence. We are not worthy!! If you ask Gloria, and we did, it isn't about any of those titles or accolades or record breaking dollar amount judgements she, and her partners at Allred, Maroko & Goldberg, have won. It is about giving a voice to those who would otherwise not have a voice and fighting for those whose rights have been presumably violated, often by the Hollywood elite. Some of these Hollywood elite that Gloria has pursued and or been involved in cases against include, but are not limited to, Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson, Rob Lowe, Roman Polanski, Donald Trump, Harvey Weinstein, Aaron Spelling and so on, and on, and on. Gloria has done more for Civil, Human, Women's, Gay, Transgender, and everything else rights than any other Attorney we can think of. Gloria opens up about the woman behind the public figure as seen on every major news outlet around the world answering questions on the biggest misconceptions she has heard about herself, moments of insecurity and fear, if any (we don't see any), what she does for fun, and can she step outside of herself, look back, reflect and realize that she has had one of the most brilliant legal carers of all time. While we have one of the most brilliant legal minds to ever exist in our presence, we get Gloria's thoughts on current cases such as the Britney Spears conservatorship, The Erika Jayne / Tom Girardi Divorce, Armie Hammer's disappearance, and Sharon Osbourne's “cancellation” from The Talk, to name a few. Gloria also chats about the brilliant Netflix documentary “Seeing Allred” discussing what it is like to have your own Netflix Documentary, but, then again, with a career as brilliant as hers, of course Gloria has her own Netflix Documentary. What an honor. Thank you Miss Allred. From one lawyer to another, we are forever changed! @gloria.allred @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Bonus Episodes Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought to you by BETTER HELP - https://www.betterhelp.com/velvetrope (10% Off First Month - Use Code "velvet rope") Brought to you by CANVA - https://www.canva.com/affiliates/VELVETROPE (Free 45 Day Extended Trial ) Merch Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.
