3 Books With Neil Pasricha
Chapter 106: Alok Vaid-Menon battles binary boundaries and beauty biases

Alok ("A-loke") Vaid-Menon was born in College Station, Texas in 1991 to parents from India and Malaysia.   When they were young they'd dress up in their mom and sister's clothes and dance around the living room for all their extended family, including their Auntie Urvashi (a gender non-confirming lesbian of color and national activist). The entire room would clap and cheer them on over syrupy bowls of gulab jamon. But when they performed a similar Bollywood routine onstage at the school talent show at age six ... they got laughed at by the entire school. Thus began a shame-filled odyssey through pretending to live as a boy -- or, at least, male-presenting -- for many years. And it also began an astounding personal dialogue and examination around gender which they're helping to lead globally today.   Alok graduated summa cum laude from Stanford University with a Bachelors and Masters of Arts in feminest, gender, and sexuality studies. Stuffing their post-graduation work into boxes doesn't work but if forced to attach labels you might start with academic, author, artist, comic, poet, philosopher, or activist. Their work explores gender, trauma, and belonging and they call for body diversity, true gender neutrality, and our most basic tenets of self-determination. They advocate for a world of acceptance and love.   Alok is the bestselling author of Femme in Public (2017), Beyond the Gender Binary (2020), and more recently a poetry book called Your Wound/My Garden (2021).   I grew up the son of Indian immigrant parents in Canada with male and female binaries and the accompanying blue and pink clothes laid out in blue and pink nurseries. Gender divides only deepened with age and, looking back, I know they partially caused me to self-censor sides of myself. I remember painting my toenails and hiding them in my socks, secretly reading and loving The Babysitter Club books, and quitting figure skating once I was the only boy left in the class. Alok shared with me the history that dispels the relatively modern cultural story of the 'gender binary' and they taught me how, in India as just one example, colonialists three hundred years ago eliminated existing gender non-conformities in favor of distorted filterings and categorization.   Alok created #DeGenderFashion, a global movement to degender fashion, they have performed in over 40 countries around the world, and they headlined the 2021 New York Comedy Festival.   Alok and I talk: beauty standards, queer history, librarian pizza parties, trans-femininity, denim platform shoes, British colonization, bánh-mì sandwiches, self love, Alok's three most formative books, and much, much more.   It was a joy spending time with Alok in Central Park in New York City.   Get comfortable on the bench between us and let's flip the page into Chapter 106 now…   What You'll Learn: How should we define gender? What is gender spirituality? What is the #DeGender fashion movement? How can we learn to see the world in a non-binary way? Why is hate the easy path? What is true gay and queer history? What is the crisis of anti-trans violence and anti-trans discrimination? What is the history of non-binary gendering? What is the link between colonization and binary gendering? What is the reality of everyday life for gender non conforming people? How can we truly love our kids? How do we get better at self-love?   You can find show notes and more information by clicking here: https://www.3books.co/chapters/106   Leave us a voicemail. Your message may be included in a future chapter: 1-833-READ-A-LOT.     Sign up to receive podcast updates here: https://www.3books.co/email-list    3 Books is a completely insane and totally epic 15-year-long quest to uncover and discuss the 1000 most formative books in the world.

Do you remember when we started the podcast? Summer of 2019 and we're still here. We're still “not here” but never fear, we will be back with new episodes soon. It's taking a bit longer than anticipated because we are changing things up. Don't worry! It's still Candace and Natalia and still irreverent as ever talking about food and cooking. That will always stay the same. You just may notice a little change in structure and how we're doing things. Still under construction so stay tuned. Here's a reminder of how we sounded on our very first episode. Definitely finding our way in this one. Hope you enjoy it and another stroll down Memory Lane from 3 years ago! Welcome to our crazy world of food and cooking classes where we teach real people how to cook real food. We don't pull any punches and we are about as real as two bitches can get. Try to guess who's crazier?.I'm Chef Candace Conley and this is my partner in culinary (and other types) crime, Natalia Banjac. We've worked in the food industry together for over 10 years; we are still besties and are still keeping it real.. So, we thought it was about time we shared that with you. We're making that happen in our first ever podcast, Not A Single Fork. Our first episode is intended as an introduction not only for you to get to know us but to get to know our approach to food, cooking and well, life. And, yep, you guessed it…we don't give a single f**k, er, fork…not really for much of anything. It has to be really, really important. We ascribe to the philosophy of @Mark Manson in his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F**k. If you aren't familiar, we strongly recommend it. You'll be SO much HAPPIER!This episode sets the stage for Season 1. We give you a brief overview of what kinds of topics we're going to be talking about. Flavor profiles and what that means in your personal cooking style “GO TO” ingredients and suggestions of what you might want to always have on hand Building your own reference library of your cooking faves, like magazines, cooking shows, books and such Cooking basics and my “secrets” (The secret is, I don't have any secrets…I'll tell you everything!) We just want you to stop taking yourselves so seriously!Life is short and you usually have to spend a lot of time cooking so let's have some fun, dammit!Some of our episodes will run longer and some shorter but no matter the length we hope you enjoy them..We want you to relax and just cook! No more judging, just cooking and loving what you make in the kitchen.So leave us comments, ask questions, call us out, but most of all, subscribe to our podcast and leave a review. You'll find us on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Stitcher. And, one more thing…we are heavily in to our online cooking classes. We've been taping for six months now so that means we're up to almost 30 recipe videos. You should go take a look.

#75 - La poursuite du bonheur est-elle vraiment réaliste et réalisable ? Ou est-ce juste une invention récente de l'être humain désormais trop confortable et sécure dans sa société moderne et développée ? Dans cet épisode, je passe en revue un chapitre du livre "Everything is F*ucked" de Mark Manson, dans lequel il nous donne son point de vue sur le bonheur, la douleur et leur lien avec le sens de la vie.On passe par deux études qui y sont mentionnées et qui sont très parlantes à ce propos et qui révèlent un peu plus comment semble fonctionner notre esprit aujourd'hui. Ça n'est pas l'épisode le plus positif que j'ai jamais fait, mais il y a quand même une lumière au bout du tunnel.Bonne écoute !

Nancy Pearl is a Superhero Librarian.   One of our values on 3 Books is “Librarians and booksellers are doctors for the mind” and while we've hung out with a number of booksellers, Nancy is somehow our very first librarian!   How did we find Nancy? Well, 3 Booker Cindy Sherrick left us a gushing voicemail at 1-833-READ-A-LOT singing Nancy's praises and we were convinced. She's won the Librarian of the Year Award, received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association, and, get this, has even been turned into an action figure!   Nancy is a frequent guest on NPR's Morning Edition, has her own TV show called Book Lust with Nancy Pearl, and, as if all that wasn't enough, is also a bestselling author with titles like George and Lizzie, Book Lust, and The Writer's Library.   Nancy joined me from her home in Seattle and we talked about the role of the library today, the power of reading, the joy of meandering, the 4 Ps of books, which books help reluctant readers get their start, what makes debut novels special, movie adaptations, audio books, and, of course, her 3 most formative books.   Let's flip the page into Chapter 105 now…   What You'll Learn: What purpose does a public library serve today? How do librarians help readers choose books? What are the 4 Ps of books? What books help reluctant readers? Why should we reread Harry Potter? What's special about debut novels?

This episode of She Turned Entrepreneur features a young woman who has figured out how to do creative, rewarding, remunerative work – all while on the road exploring at large. An intrepid traveler since her teens, Samantha Burmeister founded Nomad Copy Agency to leverage her writing and marketing skills while at the same time enjoying her freedom. Nomad writers are pros when it comes to generating all the copy that we often find so hard to come up with for ourselves. The conversational tone and engaging phrases that will sell us best sometimes need to come from someone other than, well, ourselves. That's where Samantha and her team can step in and lighten your load. They'll work with you to bring your business's personality to life with bright, compelling content for websites, ad campaigns, email sales blasts or other marketing collateral. Samantha shares some terrific tips for getting unstuck as well as advice for entrepreneurs DIYing their own copy. It can be done! Start by trying to separate yourself from your company's entity. Have fun! Finding your brand's voice means uncovering the heart of whatever service or product you're trying to sell. Remember, as Samantha says, “practice makes progress.” So don't get discouraged. And if you aspire to write professionally yourself, this episode also offers helpful suggestions to get you started on that journey. On a tight deadline?

Here are key takeaways from the conversation:· Too much on your plate? Having a business manager can be a real game-changer.· For creatives, finding a way to work on the road is a hugely liberating gift!· It's hard to write copy selling ourselves. Why struggle with it when you can outsource?· You and your company do not have the same persona. Have fun defining your business's brand and voice as separate from your own.· Persuasive writing takes a conversational tone, which is far more lively and compelling.· Having a tough day? Fix your gaze on the bright future you're trying to build! Here's a quick look into the episode:· After a traditional academic and career start, Samantha was eventually in a position to pursue the entrepreneurial life she had first discovered through reading "The 4-Hour Work Week," by Tim Ferriss. · Combining Dreams: Samantha's goal was to figure out a way to make a living while still enjoying the life of travel and adventure that she desired.· Creative professions are especially well-suited to a lifestyle on the road. Samantha can invite inspiration to strike at whatever time and in whichever time zone.· About the Nomad Copy Agency model:o Focuses primarily on professional services (accountants, consultants, business coaches).o Provides colorful, persuasive web, email and other marketing content so that company principles can focus on what they do best.o Works hand-in-hand to help automate sales and marketing processes.· Tips for entrepreneurs struggling to generate copy:o Discover your brand voice before you start writing. o Discriminate between your and your company's personas. They are distinct.o What would your company say about itself (versus what would you say about your company)?o Step outside yourself and speak to your target audience in a conversational way.· For aspiring copy writers:o Practice makes progress.o Virtual Assistant and Online Business Manager jobs offer a great arena to sharpen writing skills.o Samantha is not a big fan of Upwork and Fiverr as a place to get started.o Consider offering your services for free while getting established.o Put the intention out there! · What keeps Samantha going on the tough days:o She gets a lot pleasure bringing copy to life.o The team effort is energizing.o Keeping an eye on big-picture future goal helps!· Recommended Reading (Samantha tries to devour at least one a week!):o "Will," by Will Smith and Mark Manson.o "Shantaram," by Gregory David Roberts.

A rare walk and talk episode with great sound quality! This week on the podcast, we are discussing a variety of topics. Join me on my mail route for about 20 minutes as I waxed philosophically and poetry about a plethora of subjects. And remember, if you would like to correspond with the show, send an email to soulforgepodcast@gmail.com The first thing we are talking about this week is cultural references. Turns out that most of mine are from the 1980s and 1990s. That is the era in which I grew up, so I suppose this makes a certain amount of sense. One of my favourite references is '2 weeks' from the film Total Recall. I use it whenever possible. Most of the music I like to listen to is also from the same time frame, with the 1990s being the most favoured. In fact, it's the oldies station I most frequently listen to if I am using home town music stations. Another topic this week is my TikTok obsession. I have been using the app for about 2 months now. I make between one and four videos per day. It is quite random as sometimes I am being inspiration, while at other moments I am being silly or introspective. You never know what might come out of my mouth! The rest of the podcast is devoted to a few somewhat related topics. The main focus is on my move back home to the Soo and the happiness factor. For the most part, I feel stress-free. I'm happy. It's almost like I'm on a working vacation. Life seems bright and full of possibility! I've always believed it to be a bad idea to admit to the universe that you are happy. However, I am changing my attitude on this - I am going to enjoy the hell out of my happiness. And so should you! My life has always been fear driven. Fear has prevented me from following my dreams. This year I turned my back on fear and did things just for me. I was so afraid to move back home, but I did it anyway, and I have never been happier. We all have problems and pain. Today I watched a video on YouTube by Mark Manson. He was discussing problems and pain. A great little video with lots of relevant points. This week's podcast promo: Earth Station One

Boniface Mwangi is a Nairobi-based social justice activist fighting for equity in his home country and abroad. In 2007 his photos of violence following the national election went viral and spawned global attention on political instability and corruption in Kenya.   He is the subject of the Sundance-award winning documentary Softie and the author of the photojournalism book Unbounded which has been hailed by Hilary Clinton and President Barack Obama.   Over two million people follow him @bonifacemwangi on Twitter and Facebook where he remarkably fearlessly calls attention to untold cases of abuse, corruption, and cronyism. For his work he has been beaten, arrested for “organizing a revolution”, and had his home burned down.   His 2014 TED Talk is called “The Day I Stood Alone” and in it he shares that he's called a heckler, troublemaker, irritant, rebel, activist, and … the voice of the people. He continues to fight for justice every day alongside his wife Hellen Njeri Mwangi and their three children.   Boniface joined me from Nairobi, Kenya and I think you're going to feel as inspired and energized by this conversation as I was.   We talk about what it's like advocating for the most vulnerable, whether we can trust photographs today, how you deal with intimidation, how you live in fearlessness, how you bring back dignity to an oppressed people, why we must all seek to become activists, and, of course, what are Boniface's 3 most formative books.   This is an exciting, engaging, passion-filled conversation.   Let's flip the page into Chapter 104 now…   What You'll Learn:  How do we advocate for the vulnerable? What was the single greatest act of giving in the modern world? How do you deal with intimidation when you have a family? How do you become an activist? What are the biggest issues in Kenya right now? Why is it so hard to travel as a black person? What should African unity bring? How was the mafia brought down in Italy? How do you live in fearlessness? Why must we all be activists?   You can find show notes and more information by clicking here: https://www.3books.co/chapters/104   Leave us a voicemail.

Review: Die subtile Kunst des darauf Scheißens von Mark Manson. Diskussion: Die Katastrophen-Warnapp Nina. Chris erzählt Mix eine Geschichte und hatte einen schlimmen Wutanfall. Chris lobt Mix für seine Solosendung. Der „aufgeklärte Optimist“ existiert nicht. Mix spricht immer dann über Glück, wenn Chris nicht in der Nähe ist. Chris ist nur ein halber Glücksfreund. Wir sollten nicht nach Glück streben, dafür aber nach Zufriedenheit. Für Chris ist es kein Glück, in einem Bett zu liegen und nicht erschossen zu werden. Glück ist ein Verb. „Dürfen Bananen im Kühlschrank liegen?“ Was ist jetzt das Ziel: Glück oder Zufriedenheit? Der eine sagt so, der andere so. Das Einhornland mit Regenbogen und Schokolade, die vom Himmel fällt. Die Feedback-Loop from Hell. Gute Werte versus schlechte Werte. Beliebtheit ist ein beschissener Wert. Chris möchte noch eine Geschichte erzählen und klärt Mix über Ninjas auf. Mix muss sich einen neuen Schlafanzug kommen. Nuggets: „Der Mahatma Gandhi des Zugfahrens.“ „Optimismus und Vernunft gehen nicht zusammen.“ „Du willst mich einfach fertig machen.“ „Nur so halbgeil.“

This is a very unique chapter!   It is a double chapter, in a way.   To begin with I was so lucky to interview Susan Cain at our very first live chapter of 3 Books at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. So many 3 Bookers came out and celebrated on a snowy night just before the pandemic began. (We had no idea!) At the time Susan was deep in the throes of writing her new book Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole but as we discuss a lot of her work in process we didn't want to scoop the book so held onto this conversation until it was ready for the world.   Well, it's ready for the world! Bittersweet just came out and debuted at #1 on The New York Times bestseller list! How did we celebrate? By having another conversation, of course! Susan and I partnered with the wonderful indie bookstore Magic City Books of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and just conducted a live book tour stop together.   So Chapter 102 of 3 Books is a double interview! Our first ever. It's a before and after. Two live conversations with you hanging out between us pre- and (can we say post yet?) post-pandemic.   Listen to Susan and I discuss: bathing ourselves in beauty, the power of reading, exploring identity, honoring our children, the tension between family and art, the benefits of envy, the nature of sorrow and longing, and, of course, the brilliant Susan Cain's 3 most formative books.   Let's flip the page into Chapter 102 now…   What You'll Learn: How do make reading a family activity? How can we manage FOMO? How do books allow you to explore your identity? How should we think about gender norms? How do we go about letting our children feel honored? Can family and love coexist with art? Why should a question be at the center of all writing projects?  How are personality profiles helpful? How can envy be a useful emotion? What is longing? How can we use our longing? Where can we find beauty and why should we immerse ourselves in it?   You can find show notes and more information by clicking here: https://www.3books.co/chapters/102     Leave us a voicemail.

The best movie I have seen in years is called Everything, Everywhere All At Once and it was written and directed by Daniels. Daniels? Yes, Daniels. Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, to be specific. Two brilliant artists who met in college and began stitching together short films before working on music videos like Turn Down For What by DJ Snake and Lil John (over a billion views), Simple Song by The Shins, and Tongues by Joywave. Watch those to see their energy and magic.   Daniels made their feature-length debut at Sundance in 2016 with Swiss Army Man also known as the “Daniel Radcliffe farting corpse movie” and then followed it up with this twisting multiverse action flick Everything Everywhere All At Once starring Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu, and Jamie Lee Curtis.   And how's this arthouse flick (with a paltry $25 million dollar budget!) doing? Well, it is the highest rated film of the decade on Rotten Tomatoes. It's being credited with bringing back multiplex crowds post-pandemic. And the people who see it and love it (like I did) end up going back to see it again and again. (You'll pick up so much more on the second time through and now I'm just itching for a third!)   Daniels create art for art's sake — that David Foster Wallace Nature of the Fun ethos we've talked about before — and the result is this incredibly provocative and non-conformist stuff that just squeezes your mind until the smiles and tears start rushing out.   Let's flip the page into Chapter 101 now…   What You'll Learn: What is the greatest compliment for a film-maker? Why should you journal about a project before sharing it with an audience? What is the alpha-verse? Why is kindness a power? How can we evaluate our own projects? What is the tension between listening and hubris? How do the greats deal with imposter syndrome? What is it like to grow up with ADHD? How do people diagnosed with ADHD view the world? How can we learn to appreciate discomfort in art? How do we create visceral emotion in others? How do we supercharge our creativity and access ideas? What are schools doing wrong? What should school curriculums emphasize? How can we cultivate creativity in our kids? Why should we talk more openly about sex? Why should we question what we've been taught about relationships and sex? How can cartoon strips help us answer big questions? Are we living in a post physical world?
