It's a Star Wars prequel-style Jedi double team on this week's Fabulous Film & Friends, where two like minded movie fans will team up against a solo dissenter in an epic duel over the worthiness of the 2015 Denis Villeneuve drug cartel potboiler SicarioMy tag-team partner is David Johnson DMD, and joining us in the opposite corner for his first stint on Triple F is, is our old pal from our High School Matthew Turvey. Matt is a film, music and literature lover, Barnes and Noble Manager, the last of a kind, and yet another one of my Eastern Oregon Western Idaho friends who randomly migrated to Salt Lake City. This is the first FFF where I previously crossed swords with my guest on Facebook concerning a film's overall quality, but given the devoted and continued success of the property, I decided to take the fight outside to the streets and the public at at large. But first, a synopsis. After a raid gone awry in a horrific, dead body and booby-trapped laden cartel house in Arizona, FBI Agent and Kidnapping Task Force Specialist Kate Mercer is recruited by a shawdowy CIA operative named Matt Graver and his mysterious partner Alejandro to take the fight to the cartels in Mexico. Eager to bring justice to the drug kingpins and to fight the good fight, Mercer signs on willingly but is soon confronted with both a war and a world where black and white have transformed into an impenetrable gray. Wrong is right. Good people do bad things. Bad people do worse things. Who do you root for?

"I have this knife... it's a good knife." I was fortunate enough to have had the rare opportunity to have this man on the podcast, since he never does these things. starting off my series of guests related to "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", my guest on Episode 236 of The Brooklyn Blast Furnace is the one and only Ed Neal. Known mostly for his iconic role as the Hitchhiker in the 1974 classic movie. His portrayal of a cannibalistic, grave robbing psychopath is absolutely brilliant and has become iconic. This is one of those episodes that I never thought would happen. We talk about making the film, his inspiration, his role as "Mercer", an interrogator in Oliver Stone's "JFK", his voice over work as well as him now being on Cameo. Get yourself a personalized message from the killer Hitchhiker!!! Ed rules and couldn't have been cooler or a funnier guest to have on. Enjoy! https://www.cameo.com/realhitchhiker

We sat down with RN & IBCLC Therese Dansby to merge perhaps one of the most important combinations for motherhood: metabolic health + breastfeeding. In a culture where there seems to be two sides yelling "breast is best!" or "fed is best!," we're here to say that perhaps "nourished & supported breastfeeding is best." The hard truth is that breastmilk nutrition does not stay fixed. The nutrition of your breastmilk is absolutely determined by your own nourishment as a mom. So that does that mean we're saying to outsource to formula to ensure that baby is getting what baby needs? Absolutely not! We're saying that moms. need. NOURISHMENT. And moms need support to make that happen- whether that's through help, lifestyle shifts, financial readjustments, or simply the environment in which the mom feels like the power is back into her hands. Join us as we sit down & discuss the following: Therese's metabolic health journey Mercer's theory of maternal attainment Why it's important to put power back into the mom's hands How breastmilk composition changes over time Is "fed" really best? What is "costs" a mom metabolically to breastfeed Why it's important to support your metabolism prior to pregnancy + postpartum A whole-body approach to baby's "food intolerances" Postpartum mood disorders: a "chemical imbalance" or a lack of nourishment/support? Society's obsession with infant sleep Postpartum diet culture Calorie needs for breastfeeding moms Postpartum hormonal changes Return of cycle while breastfeeding Forms of natural birth control while breastfeeding Examining the advice of supplementing babies with vitamin D & iron Addressing oral ties systemically *Not medical advice.

By now, you might've caught up on the video that's doing the rounds on social media and the online newspapers of one of those hikoi protestors bragging about having got through the Auckland border. This is Tammy Watson, videoing herself while driving.What appears to have happened here is that Tammy left the official Mercer checkpoint yesterday where the rest of her protestor mates are.Today, she tried a back-route crossing at Pukekawa.She told the cops she was on that road because she wanted to avoid the congestion on the motorway.And they waved her through.Now, the cops say they're not going to investigate this any further.Because she had the paperwork to go through showing an exemption to move from Kapiti Mana to Kerikeri.And she didn't need a test because she was relocating from a Level 2 area to a Level 2 area.Is paperwork proof of honesty?The two alleged sex workers who went to Northland had paperwork too showing they were essential social services workers.And Tammy doesn't make it sound like she was moving to Kerikeri. She made it sound very much like she's really joining the hikoi.It might be that Tammy is actually moving home and this is all bluster, but I'd like to know.I'm getting a little tired I'm getting a bit tired of this hands-off, education first, policing by consent approach that they've taken thus far.If you cast your mind back, it feels a lot like they only charge the alleged rule-breakers AFTER the public fury forces them to act.For example the Wanaka couple. Cops didn't charge them for nearly two weeks. When that started winding people up, they were charged.Brian Tamaki. Not charged until after public outcry over his first protest.The North Shore party. Which the cops went to at 4am while it was underway. No one was fined until after public outcry. Compare that to the Aussies who are constantly being updated by the cops on how many fines they're handing out to rule breakers.I'm not into getting people in trouble for no good reason.But I am aware that this stuff is undermining the compliance in Auckland.It's very hard to want to follow the rules when you see people bragging about flouting the rules and getting away with it. Like Tammy is suggesting she's done.
Two people have been arrested in the anti-vaccination protest at the Auckland border. The so-called hikoi started on Tuesday night, when the convoy left Rotorua, hoping to cross Covid-19 alert level 3 to reach Waitangi. Police have blocked the protesters in a public road near Mercer, isolating them from food and supplies. Mana News reporter Joe Trinder spoke to Morning Report.

"Incredibly disappointed" police have blasted the behaviour of anti-lockdown hīkoi members who blocked a state highway, risking public safety. A strong police contingent is continuing to monitor a hīkoi involving members of the Sovereign Hīkoi of Truth (SHOT) movement at the Southern Auckland checkpoint border after a police line had to be used to move the protesters off the highway in the early hours of this morning. "Police are incredibly disappointed that this group of protesters have chosen to take this action," they said in a statement. "By carrying out non-essential travel they are putting themselves, our staff and the wider community at risk, while additional Police resources have had to be redeployed in order to monitor the movements of this group at the checkpoints." The group claim to be heading to Waitangi - but have been told they are not welcome there by local Māori leaders. Tai Tokerau Border Control founder Hone Harawira has described the hīkoi as "a scam" organised by Pākehā anti-vaxxers. "There is no invitation from Waitangi Marae, no invitation from the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, no invitation from Ngāti Kawa or Ngāti Rahiri, and no invitation from Ngāpuhi," the former Tai Tokerau MP said. The convoy of around 50 vehicles carrying about 100 people arrived at the Southern checkpoint border in Mercer just before midnight. Two protest vehicles, including a bus, remain parked on State Highway 1 in the northern lanes with the drivers refusing to move them. Traffic is being diverted around them and police are attempting to get the drivers to move them off the road. Police negotiators and iwi liaison officers were called in to help after some of the protesters "surged forward" on foot from Orams Rd blocking the southern lane of SH1, but when this failed a police line was used, a police media statement said. "The group was directed by police to a gravel area on Orams Rd, to move away from blocking the road and disrupting traffic travelling through the checkpoint." The group is trying to get to Waitangi in Northland where leader of the Outdoors Party and prominent anti-vaccine and anti-5G activist Sue Grey will be speaking. Grey flew to Kerikeri on a private plane yesterday and then travelled to Waitangi yesterday. Speaking on a Facebook livestream, Grey wanted to set the record straight and confirmed the Waitangi event was going ahead, but the "really, really bad news" was the hīkoi had been blocked at Auckland's southern border. Police had put a big truck across the road and laid down spikes, she said. However, this had been strongly denied by police. Grey said her co-leader Alan Simmons had told her that Hone Harawira seemed to have single-handedly convinced police that the event had been cancelled so a whole group of people were not being allowed through the checkpoint to attend. Grey, speaking on a second livestreamed video, said people stopped at Auckland's southern border were "pretty unhappy and frustrated" at the way they had been treated and urged people to go and support them. "It seems to me the people who need support are the people that are blocked at the border down in the south of Auckland wanting to come here that have been stopped. It would be helpful for people to give them some support because there are some pretty unhappy people there who are pretty frustrated with the way they've been treated and the information we have that it all came down to one person telling the police that everything is and that's why they weren't allowed to come through." She said it seemed so unfair that if you could afford to fly on a plane from Wellington you could get there, but there was no route for those who wanted to drive from level 2 into another level 2 area. Her advice to those who were being stopped was that it "if was good enough for police to block the people then it was good enough for the people to block the police", adding if the road was closed then it should be to everyone not j...

Here are your hosts, Curt Widhalm and Katie Vernoy. Curt Widhalm 00:43 Welcome back modern therapists. This is the modern therapist Survival Guide. I'm Curt Widhalm with Katie Vernoy. And this is the podcast for therapists that looks at uncomfortable things in our profession. And this is another one of those episodes that does that. And we are talking about the already developed but looming and worsening mental health workforce shortage across America. And this actually, some of the stuff that we're going to talk about today also has impact worldwide. So for our international listeners as well, we're gonna talk about YouTube. But there's been this little thing called COVID-19 pandemic. And those of us in the know, before the pandemic knew that Mental Health Access was not great in pretty much all parts of the world. And we follow along workforce issues and work with our legislature and the US government on some access issues in our advocacy efforts, and continue to have an interest in continue to provide advocacy on this. And as we're looking at the next few years, it's going to get worse, that we are seeing a exodus of workers from the mental health workforce, we are seeing a lot of reports from research organizations, we can talk about some things out of research group called Mercer and their reports that things are looking bad in the next five years as far as mental health workers that there is a exodus of workers here, Katie and I have talked before about how hard it is to become even eligible for some of these positions. And it's going to get a whole lot worse, Katie Vernoy 02:54 paired with what people were, colloquially calling a mental health pandemic. You know, the second, the second wave of pandemic is a mental health pandemic. And I think, for me, I'm actually seeing this in my own practice, I open for new clients, and I'm getting calls from folks who can't find someone who takes their insurance, who are not getting calls back. I mean, there are already issues with folks being able to access mental health treatment when they want it. And we've also got this worker Exodus. And I think the the broad strokes of this, I think, are that there are, at least locally, you know, for me, I don't know that many people that take insurance, you know, many people have gotten off insurance panels, I'm getting off insurance panels because of the, what they pay. And I think it's something where people want to use their insurance, people also, at times need higher levels of care. And those beds are not there. I was reading an article out of Colorado where there there are folks who are staying in I think solitary confinement because they can't get into mental health facilities when they've been determined that that's the appropriate type of incarceration. Not that that's kind of what we're talking about today. But but there are so few mental health workers across the breadth and depth of our field, that people are not getting the services that they need. And there are big impacts on our community. So this is already happening. But it's it's something where we are also leaving the profession, and that's pretty terrifying. Curt Widhalm 04:34 And we've been talking about this for a while we had a episode earlier this year on why therapists quit. We had several follow up episodes to it. But in looking at the trends, and I'm looking at the Mercer report here, we are looking at some major mental health shortage of workers. The Mercer report talks About that they're expecting 400,000 mental health workers will leave the occupation entirely over the next five years. And that's going to be leaving mostly public mental health employers with a shortage of 510,000 spots us nationwide. Getting into the reasons why we've covered in a number of other episodes, super high case loads, you know, large case loads, the very quick return to business as normal in a lot of situations. And this is echoed, really largely at the time of this recording I'm seeing early reports of this is really impacting places like college counseling centers that are a month into the new year to two months into the new academic year by the time that this episode drops, and are seeing increases from last year's already increased rates of seeking services by over 20% year over year. So they are facing increased calls for services with a drop in available workers to come in and provide services. The experience of these workers is also that the crises that are coming in are bigger and more severe than they have been in the past. So we're getting this perfect storm of more need higher need and fewer people to do it. And most people in our profession, as caregivers tends to want to help out but it does lead to just this really systemic burnout problem. That is easier for a lot of people to go and not work in this profession. Because it is just so taxing at this point. Katie Vernoy 06:57 Yeah, I think it's something where, when I've had in the past, short staffing, you know, whether I was a mental health provider or, or a supervisor or manager, what we by and large do is take more cases, do more work, just try to keep going, you know, everybody needs us. We can't say no, it's it's really hard. It's all of those things. I was thinking I was picturing Adriana, you know, when she came and talked on our episode around the same thing happening for bilingual clinicians. But just this idea of I can't say no, they need us and so that this these gigantic case loads that are both systemically problematic, but also personally problematic because there's just no way to keep that pace up. And so folks burn out and leave really early. But even if they make it through I mean, we've we've had this this conversation and the burnout machine and you know, so we won't go too far into this but it's just it's such a bad situation where not only are the clinicians, overworked burned out, usually not getting paid much more because oftentimes the cuts happen there. And their supervisors and managers have broken away from the day to day grind of seeing huge case loads, but are jaded and not necessarily the support that those clinicians need. And so they might as well have left the profession. Curt Widhalm 08:24 And we specifically talked about this in our gaslighting therapists episode did at the beginning of the pandemic and there's a part of me that really likes having been right but there's also a part of me that is like, we knew this was coming and and so frustrated just in this was so predictable that yeah, this is just Ah, Katie Vernoy 09:00 yeah, Curt Widhalm 09:02 Calm down. Katie Vernoy 09:06 Oh, go ahead. Curt Widhalm 09:07 But this is where we haven't changed the way that we take care of the workers. I mean, maybe what we've changed is given them a second subway sandwich party each month and Katie Vernoy 09:19 Or like cheering WOO HOOO! way to go thank you heroes Curt Widhalm 09:23 some sort of banner that that promotes You are a hero. But But I mean, it's it's stuff like this and it's stuff like, okay, we are seeing some of this response in legislation. There's a bill was passed by both houses of the US government. Moving on, will link to it in the show notes, but as a bill written by Senator Tim Kaine to promote and look into interventions for preventing burnout. in mental health and healthcare workers, and this is widely celebrated is Alright, we're going to be getting to the problem of why so many people are leaving the profession, how can we address this to keep people in. And these funding bills are continuing to miss the point in looking at this bill, my first response was, oh, we're gonna blame the individual mental health practitioners and the healthcare workers. The bill is literally about promoting mental health care and looking for ways to promote resiliency. And I know that the $30 million that is being spent to investigate this is going to result in do more yoga and have thought about therapy. As mental health workers, we know that we need to go to therapy, it's not dealing with all of the access issues, it's not dealing with all of the giant caseload issues. It's not being able to have good workplace practices. It's no set Principal Skinner meme of like, is it that's the problem? No, it's the workers. They're misinformed, that is just going to continue to reinforce this as a problem. And my big bold prediction is that in a couple of years, they're gonna say, well, we spent $30 million on it, and it didn't fix anything. So we probably don't need to invest in mental health workforce issues for a while. Hmm. Katie Vernoy 11:33 Yeah, I think one of my I'm going to put this on my to do list right now is figuring out if that does go through, is there a way for mental health providers to actually get on task forces and those types of things? Because I think there's, there are possibilities, if there's money going toward it, it has not been decided current, let me be a little Pollyanna for a second and then decided that's not been decided. And maybe if our modern therapists across the country, go and try to get into these committees and at these tables and talk about what you were just saying, as well as different payment structures, and just like, just drop the RAND report right in front of them and say, Curt Widhalm 12:11 That's just it! They're paying for more investigations to end up with things that are already in existence? Katie Vernoy 12:20 Yeah, well, alright, Curt Widhalm 12:23 we'll have a call to action about what we can do with that next step with the way that grant money is going with Health and Human Services. Maybe not today, follow us on our social media, and we'll figure it out, we'll figure out exactly who needs to be called on that. Now, some of these other bills that I'm seeing, they do provide for money for hiring more workers, General Manager, those are good. Katie Vernoy 12:49 Yeah, let's hire more workers, give them some money, give them give them money and and autonomy, that's probably not happening, but give them give them money. Curt Widhalm 12:58 Now, there's other bills to address behavioral healthcare work shortages. This also goes to other health care workers. They have their own podcast. We're talking about behavioral healthcare workers here. There are other bills that are addressed towards scholarships for improving access in particularly like rural areas. But with telehealth, I'm seeing a lot of these just in general, like let's get more people into school to be licensed for these positions. And these, in my opinion, are generally misguided and bad bills. Katie Vernoy 13:33 And scholarships are bad Curt Widhalm 13:35 Scholarships don't address the problem and actually may end up increasing the problem. Katie Vernoy 13:43 Because why did they increase the problems? My friend this is, it seems like a lot of a lot of people I know they got these scholarships, and to help them get through. Curt Widhalm 13:53 scholarship money tends to increase the overall cost of tuition and expenses that universities charge free money that's available for universities to take in, the more that it raises the cost for all students who don't get the scholarships. Because if the tuition can go up, because it's being covered by somebody else, this actually then ends up creating barriers for people who maybe, you know, not qualifying for the scholarships, still not able to pay for school, they end up taking out large loans. Now, what I'm saying is, this scholarship bills should be directed towards loan forgiveness, as opposed to paying for tuition, same dollar amounts. But if you are aware of anything, start talking with your legislators about how this money actually can impact the workforce as opposed to just filling some University's endowment fund a little bit more or being able to get three Subway sandwiches in student appreciation. We're just going to have an economy of Subway sandwiches. That's that's the way we're talking about this. Katie Vernoy 15:10 So so we can try to increase the workforce by either hiring people somehow making education cost less. There's there's another bill that I saw, and I think there's one in California right now. But there's a lot of them, I think, across the country that I'm sure are happening, but it's working to decrease wait times for clients, patients seeking services. And on the face of it, this is potentially bad, because then there's a legislative, potentially legal responsibility for mental health providers to take more clients more quickly. However, this is the part that I think is really interesting. And this is where I think there's a challenge for us. If insurance panels cannot keep clinicians in their in their roles, and cannot keep up with these wait times. I'm wondering what happens if we don't jump to this action here? Am I getting into cartel territory? Curt Widhalm 16:14 No, I don't think you are, because on one Katie Vernoy 16:17 The Cardigan Cartel is taking this on! Curt Widhalm 16:21 On one hand, the history of a lot of these insurance companies is whatever fines that they end up paying, are going to be probably cheaper than what they would have paid out in services anyway. And we've talked about this and things like the the episodes on the Kaiser Permanente strikes in the past, but these are billion dollar companies. fines to them are just, you know, shifting some numbers over from profit margins. It doesn't. These things, these bills like this are really well intended, but they don't address workforce shortages either. Yeah, and potentially even gives some of these insurance companies the opportunities for having a defense of, there's no workers for us to actually hire to shorten these labor times. which then leads to what has also traditionally happened in the workforce, which is that, well, this seems like a great time for mental health professionals too heavy, really good impact on legislation. Traditionally, worker shortages have been addressed by creating or filling in with more paraprofessionals. Now that if the really high barrier to entry positions are going to need a longer pipeline, it's being able to provide things like peer counseling services, peer support specialists, and, well, those are good, it's not something that addresses the specific problems that we're facing as licensees or for our pre licensed listeners on the pathway to being licensed. All the more reason for you to be involved with advocacy to address the specific issues. But my, you know, not Pollyanna, like, Debbie Downer piece of this hair is in unless you really take action right now, in all of the free time. And with all of that not burnt out energy that you have. History suggests that without really good action on this, we're not going to get the very needed changes that we've identified 1015 years ago, that have all come to a head here and will likely come to a head at some other position again, in the future. We need the action now to continue to call legislators to be involved in the bill writing process. So that way, it can be better. Otherwise, it's going to be filled in by paraprofessionals. And continuing to just replicate the same problems that we're seeing in our workforce system. Katie Vernoy 19:10 There's there's a few things that you're saying that i i agree with, but I also think that they don't have all the pieces to it. And so speaking to my experience with some of these public mental health contracts and those types of things, when there is a financial shortage, so they're the funding goes away, because you know, and around near and around 2008, when, you know, the great recession began, there was a lot of funding that went away for mental health services. And so there were really creative ways that folks added some of these positions. So there was paraprofessionals case managers, there was different types of codes that could be used at or slightly lower rates. And there was also this huge push for evidence based practices to you know, kind of create these different funding streams and kind of pull money from here and There. And what I really saw is that there was this combination of how do we make this cost less? And how do we take care of people with a lower cost. And with, you know, there wasn't a workforce shortage at that time, I don't think I feel like there's always a little bit of a workforce shortage and public mental health. But that's a whole other conversation. But it's one of those things where there was, there wasn't money to pay people. And so they did create these positions. But since that time, and I think this, this is accounted for in the RAND report, as well, there's been a real efficacy seen with these multidisciplinary teams. So I don't want to say like, hey, let's get out and make sure that we get to keep all the work, because I don't know that that's necessarily what we need to do, I think we need to make sure that the work that we're doing, suits our expertise and suits, what is needed. But I think, at that time, there was creativity that was both kind of mercenary, as well as actually improving mental health care. So I don't think it's black or white, like, Hey, this is just because of a workforce shortage that we need to bring in people who have different qualifications. I also think, and this is very much aligned in what you were saying that there is a tendency to make do because it's not a nameless, faceless mental health problem. It's this client and that client and this group in that group. And I think, when we are looking to make a difference right now, I think there's looking at how do I steal my heart against wanting to solve this systemic problem myself. And that is both in how we how we run our practices, but it also can be in where we get employment, when a when an agency gets a contract. So they get let's say, they get a $500,000 contract, to provide services, if they cannot fulfill it, they they lose the money. And so for public mental health providers, they actually need to say stay staffed. And we can actually make a difference in who gets to keep their money by making sure we're very diligent in where we go to get employed, and where we stay employed and where we do the work. And so there there's there is I feel like there is an element of us choosing whether or not large app companies gets our employment, whether there's, you know, public mental health organizations that don't that do shady work, whether they get our employment, you know, like, we do have a value there beyond like insurance companies and their gigantic war chests being able to fight against some of these things. So maybe that was all over the place. But I think it's something where I don't want to say like, Hey, we can only do legislation, because unless we have power in and how we choose to do our work. I think there's not going to be change anyway. Curt Widhalm 23:19 You're talking about individual issues here. While there's also such big systemic issues that do need the focus, and well, I think that there's a lot of individual efforts that we can make in our own practices, that it almost just kind of ignores the problem. I'm looking at an opinion piece in the Oregonian from September. And this was penned by Heather Jeffries, Executive Director of the Oregon Council on behavioral health. Cheryl Ramirez, Executive Director of the Association of Oregon mental health programs, and rice bowl and director of the Oregon Alliance. And their public call includes some things that very much speak to this kind of stuff, increasing funding to recruit and retain staff, reducing administrative burden. Those things are great, providing cash supports for organizations struggling with the financial impacts of increased costs and insufficient revenue. Fantastic. Publicly recognize and appreciate the workforce, throw more Subway sandwiches at them, maybe misses the point. Yeah, but the one that stands out to me is that they are asking the National Guard to be deployed to staff residential facilities. Hmm. We are in such a crisis, that the heads of behavioral workforce associations are coming together and saying we need people who Have nothing as far as training to be called in by the government to come and provide staffing here. And I point all of this out because we feel an individual responsibility to take some of these steps ourselves. There is only so much that each one of us can do that really needs to be able to address this, especially as a lot of these legislative waivers are ending and not, you know, being progressed things like, you know, telehealth supervision waivers that are, you know, going to be gone at the end of October in California where Katie and I practice but in this lurch where we talked about this in our in our most recent episode with Ben Caldwell is due to the legislative process, there is going to be systemic barriers, that rather than expanding some of this energy more for us to help the one or two or five more people on our caseload that we can take on to have a greater impact, spend those one or two or five hours where this can actually impact 1000s of people in a much better way. Even if it means looking more for long term changes in short term changes right now, Katie Vernoy 26:32 I want to do a yes, and because I think it is hard, and we'll do some of the legwork here. This is what we've been talking about with not focusing in on a conference this year, we will do some legwork. And we will try to help have some specific guidance on how we make some impacts here on legislation, policy, that kind of stuff. But I think we also need to be very conscious about the choices we make collectively and individually on where we get hired where we do our work, what we charge, because if there is a path to status quo, the legislative efforts won't go through. Right. And so we have to push back against the status quo of poor insurance reimbursements ridiculous, or bureaucratic burdens on organizations, like we need to push back on those things, individually and collectively, or it doesn't matter how many of us go in, there's, you know, we're a small workforce, kind of an in comparison to some of these gigantic, you know, other types of organ, you know, profession. So, all of us just saying, like, I'm going to take two or three fewer clients and going and fighting on the hill is not going to necessarily be sufficient, I think we need to do both. Curt Widhalm 27:56 We do need to do both, right? It's, it's like the gaslighting episode where it's like, this is stuff that is predictable that legislative changes are gonna be five, six years from now, where it's like we, we told you, so stop, stop complaining about stuff five or six years from now, because the call for action is right now. Legislators know that mental health needs to be addressed. What they don't know is what needs to be addressed in mental health. And that's where that call to action is. And I know in some of my early online conversations, when I point these things out, the response is, well, this is at least addressing the short term thing that's good enough. And right now, having been involved in advocacy for as long as we have addressing good enough for right now does not change the problems that are going to be way bigger five years from now. And I agree. And this is really where it's giving up some of our short term action that, you know, still may not be kind of our perfect sort of answers to everything. I mean, we do have several more decades of podcasts that we need to make. But we do need to actually address some of our problems in in our systemic part of our profession, and get this stuff off the ground. We have been doing some of the legwork on we will organize some of this stuff. We encourage you to start looking at what bills are going to be written in your respective jurisdictions. Send them to us send them to me, email@example.com, c u r t at therapy reimagined.com. I'll give you at least you know some ideas of things to start talking with your legislators about and if your legislators aren't reading Mental Health stuff be calling their offices and saying, what are you doing to address mental health stuff in our profession, in our state in our in our country? Because the stuff that is being written is really what Katie Vernoy 30:15 Subway Sandwiches Curt Widhalm 30:16 it's Subway sandwiches. So thank you for giving me something so we don't have it explicit on this episode. Katie Vernoy 30:25 I think we're in agreement, I think both of us just have a different take on it and and what can be done more readily. You are very adept at the advocacy at the legislative level. And I think that is something where we need to, we all need to get better at it. And we need to be at some of these tables, we need to be talking to our legislators. I 100% agree. I think if we are working for places who are exploiting us, at the same time, we are undermining our efforts. So that's all I'm saying. Curt Widhalm 30:55 Okay, I agree with that. Katie Vernoy 30:58 Overall, you know, kind of summarize in the call to action is really assess where you are in this in this time, in this really pivotal time. For our profession, are you working in a way that supports you and the work that you want to do? Have you created bandwidth so at the same time, you can advocate and make changes at the larger scale so that you're both supporting yourself standing by your principles and how you are going to work and pushing for larger systemic change. Curt Widhalm 31:42 Be in touch with us, follow our social media. Take those Subway sandwiches and tell your supervisors where to put them. And until next time, I'm Curt Widhalm with Katie Vernoy.

Hadley takes listeners to the Spanish moss-veiled city of Savannah, Georgia, as she details the storied past and present of the Mercer-Williams House. Designed in 1860 and restored in 1969 by preservationist Jim Williams after years of abandonment, the Italianate revival that inspired Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil played host to a world famous antiques collection, and, more notably, at least three untimely deaths. It's also supposedly built right on top of unmarked graves, like much of the city is. The house witnessed some of the city's liveliest parties as well as some of its darkest secrets, and while it was the scene of the crime in a scandalous murder trial, it's unclear whether it's haunted by the spirits of those who died there, or simply by its reputation. To get a better understanding of the region and the hauntings that unfold in it, Hadley and Alyssa sit down with Ghost Brothers co-star and Georgia native Marcus Harvey (42:31). Having been on several paranormal investigations in Savannah, Harvey shares his insights on the energy of the city (49:30), as well as his thoughts on antiques being possessed (56:12), and how dealing with the paranormal has allowed him to be more spiritual (1:01:48).

Ben and Paul from Have You Scene This? Podcast return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Ben's choice Oxygène. Oxygène (Oxygen) is. 2021 French science fiction thriller released by Netflix starring Mélanie Laurent and directed by Alexandre (Crawl) Aja. Laurent plays a woman who wakes up in a airtight cryogenic medical unit. She discovers she is trapped and experiencing a medical emergency and has no memory of how she got there or who she is. Assisted by M.I.L.O (Medical Interface Liaison Officer voiced by Mathieu Amalric) she must work out who and where she is before the oxygen runs out. Oxygène is a fairly decent entry in the single person (Locke, Buried, Moon) genre and “significantly better than expected” mostly due to the performance by Laurent who holds her own and commands your attention for its lean one hour and 40 min runtime. [supsystic-tables id=239] Oxygène was rated solidly on recommendability and engagement from guests and Flixwatcher but less highly on repeat viewing to score a very respectable 3.63 overall.

He's been helping marketers, marketing teams, and agencies plan out what's important to measure in their marketing, build measurement systems (using https://tagmanager.google.com/#/home (Google Tag Manager) and https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/#/ (Google Analytics)), create actionable dashboard reports, and finally use those reports to forecast and optimize their marketing results. Mercer has a knack for teaching and is known for his ability to simplify even the most complex ideas for his audience. He speaks at some of the top conferences in the industry such as Traffic & Conversion, Social Media Marketing World, and Content Jam. BUSINESS BUILDING INSIGHTS Make sure that the conversation you're having is relevant to your users. And the only way to make sure that you're saying something that resonates with them and meets their expectation is if you get really good at listening. The market will absolutely tell you if they like something or if they don't. You just have to get good at https://giftbizunwrapped.com/episodes/sonyapaz (asking questions). Get good enough to get going. Then come back and make it better later. Give yourself permission to be where you are no matter what. All About Google Analytics For Small Business The idea has nothing really to do about https://giftbizunwrapped.com/episodes/lynnesomerman (the numbers). It's the idea that we are measuring for a conversation. Measurement marketing is about listening to your users. And then based on that feedback, adjust your marketing accordingly to keep that conversation going. As a marketer, know what you can improve and change. Make sure the conversation goes in the direction that we want it to go in. The beauty of analytics is you go there with a specific purpose in mind. Don't be afraid to start slow and easy. Like anything, it's a muscle you need to build. Cave Mode - just get started. It's okay if it's super basic - you have to start somewhere. The goal is to practice asking questions. Valley of Visibility - you've got some things set up, it's not perfect, but now you can start to improve. The Summit - you've built up your muscle and you understand the strategy and tools. Now you can see everything. Framework to get started with Google Analytics Start with this BEFORE you actually set anything up. First, you plan things out. Then you build things out. And then you act upon the stuff that you've built Plan - Start with 3-5 questions you want to answer. What https://giftbizunwrapped.com/episodes/craft-show-selection-and-results (results) do you want to measure? How did you get those results? Don't get overwhelmed with a million different questions - just pick a couple good enough to get started. Example: I want to measure how much I sold and how did I make those sales. Build - What information do you need to collect to get these answers? What behaviors do you need to track to get the answers to your questions? Example: Your cart software provides the number of sales, average units, etc. Google Analytics shows you how people got to the cart. Act - What actions will you take with the answers you collect?" Example: If I make 10 sales from my Pinterest campaign in a week, I'll scale up the ad. If I don't, I'll revamp the ad or try something different like Facebook ads. Run through the process, make adjustments based on what you've learned, and go through it again. Every time you do it, you're strengthening your measurement muscle and honing in on the questions you need to ask to get actionable answers. Be sure to tune into this full...
A LONG TIME AGO ON THE VERONICA MARS SPIN-OFF WEB SERIES PLAY IT AGAIN DICK: Ryan Hansen persuades the CW suits to let him make a pilot for a Dick Casablancas spin-off show. So then he has to persuade the Veronica Mars actors to come back to reprise their roles... And then they all film Private Dick! Wherein Dick Casablancas is a private detective investigating the murders of several beloved Veronica Mars characters. There are masks! Punchings! Sexytimes! Pull-ups! Ghost Cassidy Casablancas! And bikinis as funeral-wear! And a catchphrase that never really takes off? Oh and a big dance number. Twice. Join Jenny Owen Youngs and Helen Zaltzman to investigate the official but non-canonical Veronica Mars spin-off web series Play It Again, Dick, and contemplate such mysteries as why Madison Sinclair is the MVP of the piece, how there is so much filler in such a short show, and why the CW didn't commission a Wallace'n'cookies-focused spin-off The Great Wallace Bake-Off. Content note:Play It Again, Dick contains racist jokes and references to rape and suicide. For more about this episode, and to read the transcript, visit the podcast's official site VMIpod.com/piad.

A Mercer report confirms that the healthcare workforce is burned-out and traumatized following COVID. Graphite Health launched with its first three organizing members SSM Health, Presbyterian Healthcare and Intermountain. And the ONC reported an increase in patient portal usage.

For episode 130 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, Brian, and LT talk through The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 7 titled Promises Broken. It was written by Julia Ruchman and directed by Sharat Raju. Maggie learns a survival tactic from Negan. Eugene's group clears walkers. Daryl hunts with Leah.
Juliana Mercer is a Marine Corps veteran, serving honorably for 16 years. She was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan during her military career and spent five years providing holistic support to wounded, ill, and injured Marines recovering at the Wounded Warrior Battalion in San Diego. With over 20 years of experience working with and serving the veteran population, Juliana has a deep understanding of the veteran community's needs and what it takes to support them through their transition from the military back to the civilian world. Since leaving active duty in 2011, Juliana has committed her career to supporting her veteran brothers and sisters through their successful transition into civilian life. Juliana serves on several nonprofit Veteran Service Organization BODs and founded a Public Benefit Corporation, Sabe, which aims to create meaningful change in the world through individual transformation and healing through psychedelic therapy. A portion of Sabe's profits expands veteran access to wellness through veteran-nonprofits Heroic Hearts Project and the H.O.P.E Project. Their collective missions provide hope and healing to our nation's veterans and military families. *Sabe is Spanish for "know” and an ode to Mexican healer Maria Sabina. Juliana found plant medicines in her quest to years of personal and military heal trauma. Having experienced their healing potential, she's now an advocate. She has worked with CA congress members, senators, and legislators along the coast to get a yes vote on SB-519, recently testifying at the state capital in Sacramento. Her business cards would say "psychedelic concierge" if business cards were a thing ;)
It was a thrill to talk with Paola Lázaro about playing our favorite new Walking Dead character, Princess! She was even cooler than we thought she'd be (and we thought she'd be really cool). We covered a lot, including: What she loves about playing Princess. How she approached the character when she started. How she's similar to Princess. What it was like to film her season 10C episode. Her thoughts on Andrew Lincoln. How she got Josh McDermitt to break character during a scene. How she feels about the fans. How she handles criticism. How she handles having ADHD. Her thoughts on Mercer and the actor who plays him, Michael James Shaw. Which WD character she would most like to play a scene with or write a scene for. What it's like to come into the show near the end.. Whether she thinks the ZA has benefitted Princess. Whether she has improvised any of Princess' lines. How well she thinks Princess would get along with Michonne. Whether she's talked with Robert Kirkman. And more. Enjoy!
