Interested in working with me one on one? I work with individuals, couples, and athletes of all ages. Head over to www.nicobarraza.com for more information and to book a session with me.Follow along via Instagram and TikTok @ThatBarrazaBoyThis week's guest is Natalie Lyla Ginsberg, MSW. Natalie is the Global Impact Officer at the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) https://maps.org/ where Natalie works with her inspiration around the potential role of psychedelics' in healing intergenerational trauma and conflict, and for inspiring innovative community-drive solutions. Natalie founded the Policy & Advocacy department at MAPS, and served as its director for 5 years. She also initiated and helped developed MAPS' Health Equity Program. MAPS Mission statement from their website is: Founded in 1986, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana.Many of you have probably heard of MAPS through its founder Rick Doblin. Rick Doblin, Ph.D., is the founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). He received his doctorate in Public Policy from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, where he wrote his dissertation on the regulation of the medical uses of psychedelics and marijuana and his Master's thesis on a survey of oncologists about smoked marijuana vs. the oral THC pill in nausea control for cancer patients. His undergraduate thesis at New College of Florida was a 25-year follow-up to the classic Good Friday Experiment, which evaluated the potential of psychedelic drugs to catalyze religious experiences. He also conducted a thirty-four year follow-up study to Timothy Leary's Concord Prison Experiment. Rick studied with Dr. Stanislav Grof and was among the first to be certified as a Holotropic Breathwork practitioner. His professional goal is to help develop legal contexts for the beneficial uses of psychedelics and marijuana, primarily as prescription medicines but also for personal growth for otherwise healthy people, and eventually to become a legally licensed psychedelic therapist. He founded MAPS in 1986.Natalie and I dive into so many things around psychedelic research, policy, and legality. From MDMA, psilocybin , LSD, DMT, Ayahuasca, Mescaline, Ketamine, and Eboga, we discuss what the current research is showing in terms of the various plant medicines and some of the developing legislation and licensure around being able to use these plant medicines in a legal and clinical/therapeutic setting within the United States.We also touch on cultural appropriation of shamanism in the USA and the pros and cons of some spiritual plant medicine retreats.

The beginning of an exploration into the community of Durham, North Carolina in the period following the 1898 white supremacist campaign that led to the Wilmington Insurrection and Coup D'Etat that same year. The tobacco boom in Durham in the late 1800's helped establish the city as a center of enterprise in North Carolina. Durham's burgeoning population in the late 19th century accelerated the city's economic growth further still, which continued to be fueled in large part by the tobacco and textile industries. Over the next several decades the city continued to draw migrants, including Whites and Blacks, in search of steady employment and business opportunities. Just as a small group of White entrepreneurs capitalized the proliferation of enterprise in Durham and became very successful, so did a group of African American entrepreneurs and professionals, who, over time, became patriarchs of Black Durham and de facto spokesmen for Black people in the absence of Black political participation or representation for African Americans in North Carolina. The men were responsible for the founding and success of a number of enterprises, including North Carolina Mutual and Provident Association, which later became North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company: the first black-owned insurance company in the state and the largest in the nation, The street it was located on in Durham--Parrish St.-- became known as Black Wall Street. At its height, Black Durham was considered the “Capital of the Black middle class” in America: a reputation that earned acclaim from some of the day's most prominent leaders, including Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Dubois. Guests in this episode include Duke University Professor Emeritus of Public Policy, Robert Korstad, as well as North Carolina Central University business, Professor Henry McKoy.

Brief summary of episode:Zeke Cohen has represented the First District on the Baltimore City Council since 2016.Zeke grew up in Northampton, Massachusetts, the son of a social worker and a psychiatrist. Zeke's belief that "community comes first" was inspired by his mother's stories of marching for Civil Rights and registering voters during the Mississippi Freedom Summer.

He attained a Master's Degree in Public Policy from Johns Hopkins University.

The bill, which was signed into law in February 2020, and the movement that propelled it forward were created to help Baltimore heal from our enduring legacies of trauma, racism and violence.In April 2019, Zeke sponsored the Gender-Inclusive Single-User Restroom bill, which helps ensure our city is safe and welcoming for all communities by requiring all single-user restrooms to have gender-inclusive signage. It was the first bill in Baltimore's history to be signed at a Pride Parade.In 2018, Zeke introduced the Transparency in Lobbying Act. The law tightens restrictions on lobbyists and requires lobbying disclosure forms to be posted online.Zeke and his staff work tirelessly to deliver world-class constituent services and to provide transparency throughout the process. Since entering office in 2016, his office has resolved over 2800 separate constituent requests for assistance.

I try to understand what I don't know through lots of research, lots of homework, and then I bring people into my life that can help me better understand the complexity of both sides. [8:03] Where did the idea come from? It stemmed from the fact that I am pretty political. I grew up in a rural area, Santa Rosa, California, and many of my friends are conservatives and Trumpers even. My family is also conservative. I grew up that way. But because I spent 20 years in the media industry in New York, in San Francisco, most of my colleagues are liberal. And so, I've always been in the middle space. What led me to want to do this was to cast aside the misinformation, disinformation, and abuse. [10:28] What's the plan with it all? It's not constricted to anything, it's about things that I think are topical, that are important in our culture, and then how that permeates into the decisions, we're making and our beliefs. [13:54] What are some things that you bring forth as any of that trickle in? Four of my five clients are female. And a lot of it has to do with assertiveness training. In the media world, much like many other areas in the business world, there's a lot of white men in charge. And so the good news on that front is that there's a lot of female executives moving into the top ranks within advertising, but just not enough. And so part of it for me is how do my clients navigate that landscape? And what's the best thing we can do to talk to them about not necessarily being aggressive but understanding how to negotiate more like a guy. [17:47] Where do you see yourself with what you do with these people? I'm not going to go back and run another ad agency as much as I loved it. It's a 100% focus, and it's 60 plus hours a week. It's lots of travel, lots of stress. I'm going to consult on the side. And I'm going to do some speaking next year again when it comes back on. And that's really where my career now is - talking about leadership at media conferences, helping my media executives, and then my passion project – my podcast. [20:18] Upcoming episodes I will be having an episode with the lieutenant of my city, where I went to high school in Santa Rosa. We had dinner together a month ago, and I told him what I was doing. I said, “you know, dude, there's so much information misinformation on police.” And so we will be talking about the militarization of the police, the actual training, the de-escalation, training, all of the pieces and parts statistically around his actual department. I also met a young man online who was a member of the DNC in Sacramento, and he just got his master's degree in Public Policy. And I'm bringing him on to talk about what he believes is the future of our democracy, what progressive means to him versus what it meant to me. I have another episode that I will be taking with my former professor from Notre Dame to talk about Cognitive Immunity. [32:11] What promise did God make to the world when He created you? I would help others understand themselves a little better.   Key Quote: [16:14 – 16:19] “To be a good executive conscientiousness, and order is two very big pieces to success.”  Know more about Joey Dumont on: Podcast: Laugh your Cry Out by Joey Dumont Book:https://www.amazon.com/Joey-Somebody-Times-Recovering-Douchebag/dp/1736878417/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=The+Life+and+Times+recovering+douchebag&qid=1630396791&sr=8-1 Website: joeydumont.com

In this episode you will hear:   (12:28) In this week's “In the news” segment, a blog article from the Josiah Barlett center of Public Policy entitled, by Andrew Cline “Is College Worth Is: Usually but not always” Dave and Mark discuss the statistics the blog article shares as they debate if college is worth it.   https://jbartlett.org/2021/10/is-college-worth-it-usually-but-not-always-new-study-finds/#:~:text=A%20college%20degree%20is%20a,school%20students%20are%20constantly%20told.&text=Cooper's%20study%20adds%20real%20value,investment%2C%20not%20just%20lifetime%20earnings.     (32:30) Mark and Lisa discuss two questions, one from a dad from Colorado and one from a high school student. Here are the two questions:   First question- How can you evaluate whether a school does better than its peers at looking after First year students-Dave from Colorado   Second question-I attend a small school and two of my peers committed to Duke as athletic recruits, will Duke consider taking 3 students from my small school or will their commitments hurt my chance of admission? Anonymous female student         (58:30) Mark interviews two financial aid experts: Michael Ireland, Associate Director of Financial Aid and Courtney Hatch Blauvett, the Director of College Counseling at Miss Hall's school and the former financial aid officer at four different colleges. Michael and Courtney answer 13 questions that listeners to YCBK sent in over the last three months on all topics related to paying for college, financial aid, scholarships, etc. This is part 5 of 5.   Preview-Part 5   Courtney and Michael continue their discussion about common mistakes they see a lot on the FAFSA and the PROFILE. Michael finishes up with the FAFSA and then he transitions to the PROFILE Courtney shares the most common mistakes she experiences both when she did financial aid and now that she is a Director of College Counseling Courtney and Michael answer the question, “Are you experiencing more schools requiring the FAFSA for merit aid”? Courtney-If my student will be starting college in the fall of 2022. I have heard that we should pay as we go for the first two years and  use very little of our 529. The reason for this is that the colleges use your prior prior year taxes for FAFSA. Because if we wait for the last two years to use the money for the 529 it will not have any tax impact because he will be completed by then. So basically what I'm saying is we can use a lump sum toward his college and it not be held against us Mark puts Courtney and Michael on the hot seat with some lighthearted non financial aid questions Courtney returns for a 15 minute addendum to really emphasize some things about federal loans, student loans, parent loans and graduate student loans.   (01:12:14) Our recommended resource for episode 206 is a great source for understanding how Federal legislation will impact what students have to pay for college.

Watch GTP on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKdeO4IodggpSLyhWVdcWKw   Episode Details: Harvard University Associate Professor of History and Public Policy Moshik Temkin, author of The Sacco-Vanzetti Affair: America on Trial, discusses the larger implications of this 1920s Massachusetts murder trial and how its proceedings and subsequent international post-verdict protests revealed the U.S. justice system's implicit bias against immigrants. On April 15, 1920, an armed robbery was committed at the Slater-Morrill Shoe Company in Braintree, Massachusetts, resulting in the death of two guards and the theft of at least $15,000 in payroll funds. Italian immigrant anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were accused and charged with first-degree murder. The pair's anarchists beliefs, advocating for the violent overthrow of political and capitalist institutions, and evasion of the World War I draft took center stage at the trial, overshadowing missing and contradictory evidence in the case. Influenced by presiding Judge Webster Thayer's obvious bias, which included calling the defendants "anarchist bastards," as well as the jury foreperson's publicly expressed predetermined verdict, Sacco and Vanzetti were sentenced to death. Worldwide, labor unions held protests and acclaimed writers and political influencers spoke out in support of Sacco and Vanzetti. The pair, who were widely seen as political prisoners, were executed in the electric chair on August 23, 1927. On today's new episode, author and historian Moshik Temkin will share what his extensive research has revealed about this infamous case and the resulting international protests.

A specialist in the history of the modern United States in global and comparative perspective, with a focus on the connections between history and public policy, he is particularly interested in the interaction between Americans and non-Americans–the effects that American politics have had on the wider world, the roles that international politics have played in American society and policymaking in the United States, and the dynamics created when American and international politics come into contact, or conflict.   He is the author of The Sacco-Vanzetti Affair: America on Trial (Yale University Press, 2011), which was a finalist for the Cundill International Prize, as well as several articles and book chapters.

In our talk he argued strongly for making a dark roux, so be sure to listen to that as well. As he says:  "For my recipe contribution, here's how to make vegan red beans and rice that even meat-eating New Orleanians will happily consume:   Ingredients 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 large onion 1 green bell pepper 3 stalks celery 1 clove garlic, minced 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. smoked paprika 1 tsp. garlic powder 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper 1/2 tsp. onion powder 1/2 tsp. oregano 1/2 tsp. thyme 1/4 tsp. chipotle powder 1 bay leaf 1 lb. dried kidney beans 6 cups water 2 tsp. white vinegar 1/2 tsp. liquid smoke 3 green onions, sliced 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped White rice   Instructions Combine the oil and flour in a heavy pot or Dutch oven and cook over medium heat until the color of peanut butter, stirring constantly. (This will take a while). Stir in the onions, bell pepper, and celery and cook until translucent. Add the garlic, salt, smoked paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder, oregano, thyme, chipotle powder, and bay leaf and stir for about a minute. Stir in the kidney beans, water, vinegar, and liquid smoke. Bring to a boil and cook over low heat, stirring every half hour or so, until the beans are very soft. (Make sure to scrape up the bottom of the pot so you don't end up with a burned-on layer.) When the beans are ready, stir in the green onions and parsley and remove from heat. Serve over white rice with a Louisiana-style hot sauce (ideally Crystal Extra Hot)."   The intro and outro music is "Whiskey Before Breakfast" which is both a great traditional song and something we can all agree is a good thing to do, whatever our views of how much meat to have at breakfast are.

Through his filmmaking, he has since learned that it is a story playing out in rural and underfunded communities all around the world. Aaron discusses the film's main characters as they try to reduce the number of un-owned cats in Cornwall. He relates that telling their story looked like a David v. Goliath fight, but yielded insight into possible solutions and community needs in Cornwall and beyond. Much of the progress made was impacted by COVID-19 and the constant need for accessible spay and neuter Arron touches on municipal support, academic support, and private citizen support as being factors in the lives of community cats, as well as the importance of resources and financial support for education and community buy-in. “Sometimes it might feel like you are chasing your own tail when you are doing this kind of work, and I hope that is a wake-up call to people who don't understand this world.” Watch Running Wild: The Cats of Cornwall now on iTunes, Prime Video, Google Play, Microsoft Xbox, VUDU, YouTube, and other VOD platforms.

In this latest episode of Catholics Across the Aisle, FCCB Executive Director Michael Sheedy talks with Matt Vallière of the Patients Rights Action Fund (PRAF), a national organization that works to ensure patients receive the best possible end-of-life care and, in doing so, opposes legalization of assisted suicide and euthanasia. In this informative episode, Vallière counters the myth that assisted suicide has strong public support. Once the facts are known and the implications of public policies legalizing assisted suicide are realized, public support dramatically drops off. “This is not a right/left issue. This is not a religious/secular issue. This is a human issue,” says Vallière.  Related resources are available on several websites including the FCCB's.

We're re-upping one of our favorite episodes to usher in 2022.  Check out A'ndre and Ryan's conversation with former SECDEF Leon Panetta from June. "In this special episode of The Burn Bag Podcast, we speak to former U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta (2011-2013) about a range of national security 'flashpoints' that stand to affect the United States and the Biden Administration in the coming years. Secretary Panetta, who oversaw the Bin Laden Raid as CIA Director, reacts to President Biden's decision to withdraw from Afghanistan, while also discussing a potentially new Iran Nuclear Deal. The Secretary also discusses his view on the threats facing NATO and why President Biden needs to draw 'clear lines' when dealing with Putin's Russia. We revisit Secretary Panetta's service in the Obama Administration in contextualizing the current state of Chinese assertion in the Indo-Pacific, and Secretary Panetta recounts his meeting with Xi Jinping almost a decade ago. Secretary Panetta uses that story to outline how the United States needs to engage multilaterally while also bolstering its military capabilities to meet the challenge of China. Secretary Panetta also discusses the emergent, if not current, threat posed by cyber-warfare, and how the U.S. military needs to adapt to meet the dangers posed by the newest domain of warfare. We close out the conversation with a brief discussion on the defense budget -- a topic Secretary Panetta is intimately familiar with, not only because of his time as Secretary of Defense, but also due to his former position as Director of the OMB and as Chairman of the House Budget Committee.Secretary Panetta co-founded the Panetta Institute for Public Policy, and is the author of Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace, his New York Times best-selling auto-biography."

Throughout 1996, Albanians sold their houses and their livestock to buy into pyramid schemes that were doomed to fail. By the year's end, this new kind of financial product had swallowed up almost 50 per cent of the country's annual income, and touched nearly every adult's life. How did an entire country fall victim to scammers? Gavin Haynes explores the psychology of one of history's great mass delusions, 25 years on. He heads to Albania to hear how, in something like a fable, Europe's most repressive Communist state was suddenly turned loose into a capitalist Wild West it was ill-prepared for. And how the knock-on effects of financial meltdown pushed the country to the brink of total anarchy. At the heart of his journey is an ongoing mystery - what became of the life's savings of so many ordinary people?

On this episode, we begin looking forward to 2022 and what is sure to be an exciting year to come. Whether your nonprofit is gearing up for midterm elections, legislative advocacy, or administrative activism, there are several steps you can take to prepare your team NOW. That is why we present you with our TOP 10 nonprofit New Year's Resolutions.    Our Attorneys for This Episode:  Natalie Ossenfort  Tim Mooney  Leslie Barnes    Show Notes:  Schedule your election season advocacy training now. While midterm elections happen later in the year, candidates are launching their campaigns, and primary election season is gearing up. Make sure your staff is ready by training them on how your nonprofit can engage with candidates and voters while remaining in compliance with state and federal law.  Make sure you have an election season policy, and have your staff and Board members review and sign it. Many nonprofits are perfectly situated to get out the vote and pursue important policy agendas, but these activities can trigger conversations that implicate nonprofit election season advocacy rules. By having a policy (and sticking to it), you create a layer of protection for your organization as it confidently moves into 2022.  Build in accountability advocacy for your (c)(3) or (c)(4) for year-round effectiveness. Nonprofits can hold their elected officials accountable for how they serve their constituents. There are a variety of activities in which nonprofits may engage to remind legislators and elected officials that their issues matter, educate constituents about officials' positions and actions, and demonstrate to officials that their votes will not go unnoticed.  Have a 501(c)(3) and a 501(c)(4)? Get set up to grant unused lobbying capacity from the (c)(3) to the (c)(4) at the end of the year with our brand-new guide – Maximizing Your Advocacy! Why? Lobbying can count as one of a (c)(4)'s primary purpose activities, helping it to maintain the required balance between nonpartisan and partisan (secondary activity) work.  Prepare to educate candidates and political parties on your issues. An election year is a perfect time to capitalize on any heightened interest people have in the issues important to your communities. While 501(c)(3)s cannot provide singular research, strategy, or support to one candidate or political party, they can use this opportunity to educate candidates in a nonpartisan manner and even influence candidate and political party platforms.   Resolve to support democracy in 2022. The IRS permits 501(c)(3) nonprofits to engage in charitable activities, including nonpartisan activities that support democracy, expand the electorate, & encourage civic engagement provided the activities further the organization's mission. Determine if your state's election laws have changed for registering or voting, and build voter education and outreach into your advocacy work.  Make plans to brush up on your knowledge of state lobbyist registration and campaign finance reporting requirements. Depending on what level of government you are working to impact, you may trigger reporting requirements at the local, state or federal levels. These laws could require you to track both your administrative and legislative activities and any expenditures you make on ballot measure campaigns (in addition to independent expenditures if you happen to be a (c)(4) working to influence candidate elections). Luckily, we have a wealth of state law resources on our website including a NEW practical guidance lobbying series.  Take stock of your capacity to engage in advocacy, and embrace your strengths (and weaknesses) as an organization to maximize your impact at the legislature and beyond. Where should you start? Our Advocacy Capacity Tool is a good place to begin. By evaluating your goals, plans, strategies, partnerships/networks, operations, and more, your nonprofit can put itself in the best position for advocacy success.  Get social! (on social media that is). Social media offers nonprofits an opportunity to amplify their advocacy to reach communities far and wide. Whether your organization is building its presence on IG, TikTok, Twitter, Facebook, or elsewhere, make use of online advocacy as a tool to expand your supporter base and activate public policy campaigns. Just remember that tax code nonprofit advocacy rules will still apply, and check out our guide to Public Policy in the Digital Age to remain in compliance.  Take time for yourself. Just because you work for a nonprofit or serve on a nonprofit Board, that doesn't mean that you can't step away from time to time to re-center and engage in the activities that bring you happiness and joy. Just like the last couple of years, 2022 is almost certain to bring with it its own unique set of challenges. Stay focused, stay diligent, but also keep motivated by taking time for YOU.                      Resources:  Accountability Advocacy for 501(c)(3)s  Accountability Advocacy for 501(c)(4)s  Is It (c)(3) Compliant? – Decision tree for election-year activity  Advocacy Capacity Tool  Maximizing Your Advocacy: 8 Steps for Granting Unused Lobbying Capacity from a 501(c)(3) to an Affiliated 501(c)(4)  Maximizing Your Advocacy Supporting Documents   Public Policy in the Digital Age: The Law of Online Lobbying & Election-related Activities  Sample 501(c)(3) Organizational Policy for Election Season

Watch GTP on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKdeO4IodggpSLyhWVdcWKw   Episode Details: Harvard University Associate Professor of History and Public Policy Moshik Temkin, author of The Sacco-Vanzetti Affair: America on Trial, discusses the larger implications of this 1920s Massachusetts murder trial and how its proceedings and subsequent international post-verdict protests revealed the U.S. justice system's implicit bias against immigrants. On April 15, 1920, an armed robbery was committed at the Slater-Morrill Shoe Company in Braintree, Massachusetts, resulting in the death of two guards and the theft of at least $15,000 in payroll funds. Italian immigrant anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were accused and charged with first-degree murder. The pair's anarchists beliefs, advocating for the violent overthrow of political and capitalist institutions, and evasion of the World War I draft took center stage at the trial, overshadowing missing and contradictory evidence in the case. Influenced by presiding Judge Webster Thayer's obvious bias, which included calling the defendants "anarchist bastards," as well as the jury foreperson's publicly expressed predetermined verdict, Sacco and Vanzetti were sentenced to death. Worldwide, labor unions held protests and acclaimed writers and political influencers spoke out in support of Sacco and Vanzetti. The pair, who were widely seen as political prisoners, were executed in the electric chair on August 23, 1927. On today's new episode, author and historian Moshik Temkin will share what his extensive research has revealed about this infamous case and the resulting international protests. Learn how this legendary trial impacted global politics and resulted in lasting judicial reform.  Click Here to Read/Download Trial Documents   Guest Bio: Moshik Temkin: Moshik Temkin, Associate Professor of History and Public Policy, joined the Harvard Kennedy School faculty in 2009. A specialist in the history of the modern United States in global and comparative perspective, with a focus on the connections between history and public policy, he is particularly interested in the interaction between Americans and non-Americans–the effects that American politics have had on the wider world, the roles that international politics have played in American society and policymaking in the United States, and the dynamics created when American and international politics come into contact, or conflict. He is the author of The Sacco-Vanzetti Affair: America on Trial (Yale University Press, 2011), which was a finalist for the Cundill International Prize, as well as several articles and book chapters. His current research interests include the history of the death penalty in comparative perspective, the impact of war on public policy intellectuals since World War I, Malcolm X's career and politics in a global context, the relationship between American civil rights and global human rights, and the contest between global political activism and travel control since the Cold War.
