This week, Cindy Juyong Ok talks with Cathy Park Hong, who has published three volumes of poetry and the collection of essays Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Hong introduces us to a new selection from “Spring and All,” featured in the September 2023 issue of Poetry. She discusses how feeling like a “shit mom” during the early days of the pandemic has influenced her new writing, as did the work of other artists and writers who address “failing” at motherhood, like that of visual artist Tala Madani and her “Shit Moms” series.
Recorded: September 25th 2023 | On this weeks episode, it's Bussin Bowl week so Will and Taylor are getting ready for it in their own ways. The boys preview the game and have some choice words for each other while they give their thoughts on how is going to go. They even make a "little" wager on the game. Following Bussin Bowl talk, the boys give out their "who's nuts of the week". they also get into to some deeper football talk as they get into the good, the bad and the the shit that'll get you beat. They have some serious nominee's for each but also have some funny honorable mentions that they throw out there. During this episode Taylor comes to the realization on how becoming a fan works. He always had a weird thought process when it came to people being fans of teams/players etc. But following this weekend in Notre Dame he finally gets it and he actually enjoys what all goes into being a fan of a team. Then the boys have on another one of their reoccurring guests, safety for the Seattle Seahawks, Quandre Diggs. Diggs is a little bit familiar with the show so the boys break the ice immediately getting into our tier talk. He then gets into his process during the week when it comes off injury as he has been dealing with a little bit of a hamstring issue. He talks about how nice it is having a coaching/training staff that trusts the player and doesn't put any added pressure on them since they've missed practice. Diggs also talks about the difference of teams after coming from the Lions. In his words he said it was like going from "the shithouse to the penthouse". Quandre is one of the boys and we can't wait to have him back on later in the season.

Y'all, y'all, we're real excited for this one. It's a sloppy lil episode where we discuss the first two books of Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation by Mo Dao Zu Shi. The first book took us months to read. The second? A couple days. Shit picks up and gets pretty evil. Delicious. Sarah talks about the walking source of embarrassment that is Wei Wuxian. Cyrus loses their mind over one man psychologically torturing another. We both do our very best with pronunciations, and we plug the bonus episode on The Untamed maybe a little too much. We cannot WAIT to read more.

Inspired by a request from my podcast producer, Alyssa Boccia of Mic Drop Productions, this episode is a solo episode all about my entrepreneurial journey. Before you put your eye mask on to take a nap, let's think about all the ups, downs and sideways that happen in entrepreneurship. And questions like, do "successful" entrepreneurs know what they are doing? How do seasoned entrepreneurs handle set backs and difficulties? Are successful entrepreneurs born or created? It occured to me a couple years ago that my boys have lived with an entrepreneurial mom their entire life and yet even they seemed to only notice the highlight reel. Maybe I shielded my kids from my "failures" [like that time I failed an important licensing exam ... oh ya, fuccck] and when the funding didn't come through and my name was on a lease I didn't have the money for? I've earned these wrinkles my friends ... and something tells me that if you are an entrepreneur you have faced your own trials and tribulations along the way. If you are new on this journey or contemplating a new direction there will probably be something in this discussion for you. Despite it all, I'd pick the sovereign journey every single time ... especially now my friends. More on that in the episode. I also talk about: [00:15:34] Creating a business plan without knowing what I was doing. [00:18:51] Uncertainty, signed lease, faced rejections, being my own contractor. [00:22:10] No patients, no money for marketing. The affordability of door knocking. [00:25:31] Connecting through speaking and writing as a way to be seen. [00:27:38] Making tough choices and redefining success. [00:32:17] Human curiosity; unmet needs, body communication, self-discovery. [00:33:42] Desire for self-development retreats sparked my current path. [00:42:02] My 'Freedom 50 Plan' sidetracked by divorce. [00:44:54] Stay curious, ask questions, and be present. [00:47:35] Entrepreneurship offers flexibility, freedom, and hard work. [00:51:59] Share, connect, engage, impact, subscribe, retreats [00:54:38] The sovereignty of entrepreneurship. Moments During The Podcasts: On The Importance of Sharing the "Shit of It": "But that's the thing about observing somebody else's life, is for the most part, we tend to see the highlights. And I didn't fully realize that sharing the shit of it was actually not something that was going to prevent them from wanting to keep walking ahead in their own entrepreneurial journey, but it was actually going to fuel them that they would somehow find compassion for themselves when they had difficulty, when they had troubles, when they came up against their own difficulties."— Laura Foster On Millennials and the Value of Working for Others: "Working for other people highlighted to me what I liked about working for other people, what I liked about people who ran the businesses or didn't like, and how people responded to certain bosses. All of this, to me, felt like it was research and development."— Laura Foster On Making Tough Choices: "And anybody in business will know you can do great work, but if the numbers don't work in your business, you're not going to be in business."— Laura Foster On The Evolution of Dreams: "But at some point eventually, this initial dream of being a chiropractor, owning the clinic, impacting the community, being in connection with other humans, the way I was, stopped being my dream."— Laura Foster More About Dr. Laura Foster: WEBSITE INSTAGRAM I have recently opened up some opportunities for women to work 1:1 with me in personal leadership coaching.

Episode Summary This week on Live Like the World is Dying, Inmn is joined by Wōen and Roxanne from the Woven Ends Collective to talk about death, dying, death work, and everything from how to determine who gets to make decisions about your end of life, to how to have your remains dealt with in the manor that you would like, to how to bring community collaboration into death. Next week, they continue the conversation, focusing mostly on the work of death doulas. Host Info Inmn can be found on Instagram @shadowtail.artificery.

Transcript **Live Like the World is Dying: Woven Ends on Death & Dying Part I ** **Inmn ** 00:15 Hello, and welcome to Live Like the World is Dying, your podcast for what feels like the end times. I'm your host for today Inmn Neruin and I use they/them pronouns. Today we're talking about something that we sort of reference all the time on the show, and that is death, a thing that we should all live like is going to happen someday. Because it is. I wanted to have Wōen and Roxy on to talk about this because I found myself thinking about it more and more as things change evermore rapidly in our world. And, I think it's cool to talk about because it's just another form of community preparedness that we can all engage in to make our end of lives easier for ourselves and for the people that we care about, and in general, just demystify the topic as we figure out how to leave this world, whether that pertains to navigating funerary industries, medical industries, legal logistics, medical interventions, the choice to die at home, how to have home burials, how to care for the dying, and how to have these conversations as a community. A content warning, obviously, we're going to be talking about some heavy stuff, and we approach it with some amount of levity, but we do talk at some point about the idea of choosing to die from the perspective of terminal illness. But before we get into it, we are a proud member of Channel Zero network of anarchists podcasts, and here's a jingle from another show on that network. Doo doo doo doo doo. [saying these sounds like a song melody] Wōen **Inmn ** 02:43 And we're back. Thanks, y'all so much for coming on the show with us today, especially to talk about a subject that I feel like is like a little bit more grim than we usually talk about. Or, I guess we kind of always always talk about it, but we never actually talk about it. So yeah, would you like to introduce yourselves with your names, pronouns, and kind of like what you do in the world? **Wōen ** 03:17 My name is Wōen. I use he/him pronouns. I work in grave care, so burial, and generally any rot-honoring practice that I can help with. **Roxanne ** 03:41 And my name is Roxanne. I am a nurse and have been doing end of life, and death doula sort of work outside of that, for maybe 15 years or so. Yeah. **Inmn ** 04:01 Cool. And y'all are part of a collective that kind of specializes in this kind of work. Would y'all want to introduce that now or we could talk about it later? **Wōen ** 04:17 Yeah, no, we can introduce it now. Our collective is called Woven Ends. We're more recently becoming more outward facing. We're a collection of death care practitioners and community members who are interested in helping the community. We are focused on combating the domination and alienation in our world through making our death rites and the care for the dying more autonomous and a lot more intimate. **Roxanne ** 05:08 And accessible. **Inmn ** 05:12 Cool. Um yeah, it's weird how much the State is like intertwined in death. And that's like not...I feel like that's not something I ever realized until I realized it and then I was like, "Oh, like can you die without the State being involved?" **Wōen ** 05:35 Like the bureaucratic storm is also guided by the industry and a lot of the rituals that we have now and the way that death operates is it's a contrived effort, the funeral industry, to deal with all aspects after death. So, it's a really troubling, difficult thing that families and loved ones navigate. **Roxanne ** 05:35 No. **Roxanne ** 06:14 Yeah, it's pretty devastating. It's like Capital will take hold and commodify any and every aspect of our life possible and not even our life but our afterlife as well. Like yeah, it's hard to believe in true freedom sometimes, but that's why we're here fighting for it. **Inmn ** 06:38 Yeah, I feel like...Whatever, I'm gonna take like a pretty like light hearted and like whimsical tone today because we're talking about something grim, but I feel like we have these ideas that like, "You know, the State's got me in life, but at least when I die I'll be free," and it's like maybe? I mean, your body won't be. **Roxanne ** 07:14 Sadly, no. Eventually Yes but initially, no. **Inmn ** 07:22 Yeah, I feel like that is a literal nightmare of mine. Could y'all kind of break down like what is death work? Like what is a death doula? What is the Woven Ends collective kind of like do in like a material or emotional way? **Roxanne ** 07:50 Well, I can speak towards death doula work. What a death doula is, is a little undefined. And there are powers that be that are trying to make it more defined and kind of like more commodified. But basically, a death doula is someone who helps a family or a loved one sort of like go through the process. So that could look like, before someone dies, helping come up with some like legacy project, some things that people want to leave behind, or how someone wants to be remembered. So, that could be like, you know, if a 40 year old who has three kids dies, kind of legacy work you could do with someone in that situation is like, you know, help them record videos for their kids' future birthdays, you know, stuff like that so that way when their kids get older, like hit those milestones, they can have this video from their parent that has been gone for a while. So yeah, just kind of like, you know, one aspect is focusing on legacy work. Another aspect is just kind of like emotionally helping people with the grieving process, whether that be the person who's actually passing away or the family sort of like talking through the process of all of that with them. And then, you know, other aspects could be more helping set up funerary services, trying to help work on community aspects of disposition. Yeah, death doula is...It's sort of that the individual does different things. And I think if someone's interested in having a death doula, I would really ask questions about what specific services they provide. **Wōen ** 09:59 Yeah, And I can speak more to like our collective. We definitely, we try to connect the right people to help different community members. So, that could be a death doula or even a grave digger. So, a lot of what we do is like guidance around the whole process. And we definitely want to like expand our scope completely to be able to care for the whole process. But most of what we've been doing in the past, and currently, is helping folks with finding burial options that are accessible and hopefully free. And we've been able to create a network of free home burial grounds where we live. And it's been really awesome to be able to provide this for free. And it usually is in tandem with a lot more care going on with death doulas and generally the radial support that happens when you're trying to create a more autonomous situation. **Roxanne ** 11:28 I would also say that a part of the sort of intentional death work thing is to really help communities and individuals kind of like shift narratives towards death. We live in a really deathphobic society. And it is a thing that I think...you know, like, even in our introduction, we're like, "Okay, so this is a really grim topic," but it's interesting, because it's one of, you know, aside from being alive, it's the only other thing that everyone is going to experience, like the one thing that even if you have nothing in common with somebody else, the fact that you're going to die is a thing that you have in common. And so I feel like there's a lot of room for connection there. And, a part of the sort of work is to try to like, you know, find connection, find community, and sort of shift the narrative around this very natural and inevitable thing that's going to happen, and open up room and space for there to be beauty and transition in that instead of just fear. Because I think oftentimes, people don't actually...They're not scared to die. They're scared of being in pain. And those are very different things. So I think, yeah, just like...death workers offer a space for us to really intentionally look at that and say, like, "Okay, you're feeling scared? What is it that you're scared of?" You know? And really helping shift that narrative and also hopefully providing a space where nobody has to die alone. You know, sometimes that's just going to happen, but if at all possible, making sure that we can provide space--unless someone wants to--but they don't have to die alone. **Inmn ** 13:32 Yeah, we do live in a really deathphobic society. And I...you know, obviously it's a sad and hard and difficult thing, but I feel like I have always wished that there...that we as a culture did have different attitudes or different ways that we deal with it, or grieve, or like mourn, or whatever. I don't know, I've just had a couple kind of funny funerary experiences, where I was like, "Are we celebrating this person's life? Or are we mad at them because they didn't tell anyone how sick they were?" And that just like...Yeah, just like a lot of funny experiences like that. Whereas, I wish that we were, I wish we had, that we had a different attitude towards this right now because I'm not sure if this attitude is like helping anyone. **Roxanne ** 14:43 Yeah, definitely. And I think you bring up a good point too, where because of deathphobia but also because of our obsession with what we consider health, sometimes people are so scared to admit that they're sick because there's so little support and resource around that. And people don't want to be, you know, a burden to each other. And instead of being angry at our friends because they wouldn't tell us how sick they are, it's a great time to, you know, take a moment and be like, "Okay, why do we live in a world in which someone that I loved very much could not tell me how sick they were? And like, how do I fight that world instead of my friend?" **Inmn ** 15:37 Yeah, yeah, totally. You mentioned earlier--I just want to like hit on this before we get too far away from it--but there being some effort to make being a death doula more of a defined thing? And I'm--I know, this is subjective--but is that a good thing? Is that a bad thing? Is that a complicated thing? **Roxanne ** 16:01 I mean, in my personal opinion, I'm not for that. I feel like the way...like I understand and respect people wanting to figure out how to do this work and still...Like, it makes sense to me that people want to do this work in a permanent way in this world that we live in, this society of capitalism, like people need to get paid for their time in order to survive. Like that makes sense to me. But, I think that there can be a kind of predatory nature to it. And these...It's like the commodification of the death, dying, death doula world is really similar to what happened in the birth community. And I think that's kind of interesting that the link between the two, because people have been doulaing each other since people were...were born about how to do these things. And, if we lived in communities where we were interacting with birth and death in more tangible ways then we wouldn't need sort of outsiders to tell us how to do these things. But yeah, I think that the certification process doesn't make sense. I think it's just another platform of institutionalization and commodification that isn't necessary, you know? It's like, okay, a lot of these certification organizations are offering education, which is amazing, yes. Like, education is so important. But the real education--and I feel like I learned this in nursing school, too--like, you can learn all the ins-and-outs of things, but where you're actually going to learn is through experience. So like, you want to learn how to be a death, doula? Go volunteer for hospice. Like, go watch people die and you will learn so much just from having that experience or like, you know--and not just hospice. You know, there's a lot of ways that people can sit with people at the end of their life. But, you know, like you don't need to pay someone to teach you how to be an active listener. **Wōen ** 18:37 Yeah, and I think...Like in the realm that I work in--which is what they call green or natural burial--like it's all the same pattern of pushing towards professionalization and specialization, and it's being co-opted by the Capitalist system. Even though a lot of these cemeteries that are providing this like really beautiful practice, they didn't intend on that and they structured themselves as a nonprofit. So they just continued to fall into the trappings of what happens when you professionalize something. And now there's overarching regulatory institutions and it's just...It makes it really hard to get into the process and start a cemetery and...Yeah, and they're walking hand-in-hand with the rest of the funeral industry, so, like annually increasing prices for these rituals that were supposed to be a lot more accessible and ecological, but they're not. They're not accessible. **Roxanne ** 20:07 Totally. And I feel like this...Yeah, this focus on specialization really, you know, negates and alienates the fact that we have inherent wisdom as to how to handle these situations. And then when we can't accept or like don't have--courage isn't the word that I'm looking for--confidence in our own, you know, kind of inherent wisdom, then we feel like we need a specialist to tell us what to do, but it's all right there inside of us in information that we can pass down with each other through, you know, actually having a relationship with death, and dying, and disposition, and all the things. So I feel like, yeah, the more we can be connected and like with death, honestly, the better we can be with life also. **Wōen ** 21:11 Yeah, and when we say, "disposition," we mean burial, cremation, you know, being eaten by birds, everything. It's a general term. **Inmn ** 21:27 Yeah, yeah. I feel like...it's fun to use this as the thing to compare it to, but, you know, I think it's important for us to like have, you know, guides through hard times or like people to...people who are very familiar with or versed in leading these experiences or facilitating these experiences, and it's...like, what you were just describing of kind of like what the Death industry is, it reminds me of a like boutique coffee shop or something. Yeah, like turning death and ritual into a boutique coffee experience that is just another strange industry that maybe people feel better about, but, yeah, I don't know. I don't know how much actual connection or like community building that is doing? **Roxanne ** 22:36 Totally. Yeah. That makes a lot of sense. Yeah, it's a similar thing. Yeah. And again, they did that with the birthing community too. It's, yeah, it's sad. **Wōen ** 22:50 Yeah, and, you know, like with organic foods. **Inmn ** 22:57 Yeah. To kind of switch gears a little bit, why is it important to think about this stuff now? Like, why is it important to think about dying? Why should we be having these conversations as a community? **Wōen ** 23:16 Yeah, I mean, I think it's always been important when you want a culture that renews itself, and especially now when we're facing intense upheaval, developing a deeper intimacy with death, it helps us claim a place, and claim ancestors, and develop a deeper resilience to the chaos in our world. Like when thinking about movements and how under the regime of alienation, and the lack of intergenerational connection, and especially like connection to our ancestors, like, things can really be thwarted without those connections to place or to the people that came before. Yeah, and so being able to be with the unexplainable and unknowable aspect of like... **Roxanne ** 24:47 I think now, as Wōen was just saying, it's so important because we are living in pretty devastating times. It's pretty obvious, I think, to most people with what's going on with the climate, you know, with ecological destruction getting worse very viscerally year by year and not just in one place but all across the world where people are really...You know, you live in Arizona...Wait, maybe I shouldn't say that... **Inmn ** 25:33 I've said it multiple times. **Roxanne ** 25:38 Yeah, well, for example, you live in a place that in the summer if someone accidentally tripped and fell, they would burn themselves on the ground and potentially have to go to the burn ICU. Like, that wasn't true five years ago and it's just only going to become more true for more places across the world. And I think, yeah, just really taking inventory of the trajectory that the world is on right now means that we're...When you're living on a dying planet, you're gonna have to deal with the fact that we are a part of that planet and not separate from that. And I think also, you know, the question of "Why now?" is, like, both a societal question and then also kind of an individual question because I think...You know, I am 39 years old. I think most people in their 20s, 30s, 40s, even 50s aren't really thinking, and hopefully, you know...People even younger than that obviously, need to be thinking about this stuff, too. But I think that, you know, often the more like normative stance--which is also partially a bliss--is just to be like, "Oh, you know, if I have a fine bill of health then why should I be concerned about these things?" And we all know people die unexpectedly. We all know our relationship to health, and all the different forms that that can look like, can change at any moment. We all know that life isn't just inevitable. And so I think really thinking about these things and really starting to prepare for these things is one of the best things we can do to help not just, you know, those around us when we die, but also to help inform how we live our lives. No matter what age you are, I think it's important to be thinking about and talking about. I've been having conversations, for example, with my mom about the fact that she was gonna die since I was like five years old. And then at some point, I was like, "Oh, wait, if you're dying, that means I'm dying too. Shit, I'm gonna have to think about this." **Inmn ** 28:23 Yeah, what does? You know, this is the fun moment where we get to say the name of the podcast in a question, but how does one live like they're dying? Like, what does that mean? **Wōen ** 28:40 I mean, I think it's understanding that ecologically and spiritually the dead make the world. Our ancestors are not just like our [uninterpretable. "In our dirt?"]. They're what came before use. They're everything we eat, and breathe, and even conceive of, and dream of. So, it's fully opening our minds to understanding the deep cycle of life. **Roxanne ** 29:17 Yeah. And, you know, some intentionality, recognizing that the things that we do and how we treat ourselves and each other do matter, you know? Like they do matter because we are people experiencing each other. Or, they don't matter in the way that we are tiny pieces of sand floating around on this huge rock in this ginormous atmosphere. You know? It's like it's both. Both things are happening at the same time. We are a multitude it turns out? Both how we are and who we are matters and also doesn't at all. But I think just like really honoring the fact that it's a limited resource, that life is actually a limited resource, and that the time that we spend together is also limited, and trying to really love people while you can, to be brave enough to really love the people in your life while you can. **Inmn ** 30:32 Yeah, I feel like we have such a...our culture has such a focus on the concept of "later" and the future that like...And you know, this is maybe obvious because a lot of the society that we live in is founded on this idea of...or like founded by people who are informed by a religion that embraces an afterlife that...and something I've really appreciated about--I'm not necessarily an atheist--but like something I've always appreciated about atheism is that it is weirdly pro life and pro living in this way where it's like, "Yeah, there's nothing after this so you gotta do what you want to do now, not later. **Wōen ** 31:32 Yeah that's kind of...I mean, I think the Christian worldview is inherently disassociating from your body? Yeah. Not a good place to start. **Inmn ** 31:53 Yeah, just to switch gears a little bit, I want to talk a little bit more about the logistics of death. So, something that I think about a lot is like, if, you know, if I get sick tomorrow, if I get in an accident tomorrow and like my condition suddenly changes like rapidly, and I have feelings about how I want...like what interventions I want taken or how I want...Let's start with interventions. And then we'll move on to other bits, but how do I prepare for that? How do I prepare for getting the...having the interventions that I want taken or not taken? Or, how do I get to choose who gets to make those decisions when I'm no longer able to? **Wōen ** 32:59 So, the simplest answer to that would be to complete an Advanced Directive that's legally binding. And so this designates the person who will be your advocate legally, to make choices at the end of life and after death. Yeah, and this ends up...Yeah, this supersedes the legal next of kin, which without designating the power of attorney, will be your biological family. So this is really important if you don't want them to be in charge of what you want to happen to you at the end of life or after your death. **Inmn ** 34:00 Do you have something to add to that Roxy? **Roxanne ** 34:02 I do. I think that I just wanted to add that making choices around your health care power of attorney, like who that person should or could be, I think sometimes there can be a lot of pressure from people that are close to you that just because you're close with someone that they should be the one to help make those medical decisions for you. But, I would like to argue that maybe that's not always the best person. What you want in these situations is someone who will follow the directive that you lay out, because just because you have this document stating how you would like for things to go, at the end of the day, the healthcare power of attorney actually gets to make the final call. So maybe you say, you know, "CPR is okay. But I don't want to be intubated." At the end of the day, if your healthcare power of attorney decides, "I want them to be intubated," despite what your paperwork says, they can intubate you. So you really want to pick someone who can...who you think will follow what you've asked for and also someone who, even if they don't have the information themselves, will educate themselves or ask the right questions to make decisions that they think you will want. And it's also I think good to think about, you know, if, for example, you think your partner is going to be so worried and like so in a process of grief, that maybe they're not the one to choose because maybe it's better for them to just to get to be in the grief process and not having to make these big decisions. I've seen so many times in the hospital where the family feels like if they choose to, quote unquote, "Pull the plug," that they're the ones that killed their loved one, not whatever, you know, situation their person was in or just that the bodies can only handle so much. And I think that, yeah, giving someone healthcare power of attorney is--I'm not going to say it's a burden--but there is definitely the potential for weight behind that and it is a serious question. It's not...it's not a popularity contest. It's not about who you like the most. It's about who you really think can help make the decisions when they need to be made or who's going to be brave enough to call it when it needs to be called. **Inmn ** 37:24 Yeah, yeah. That makes sense. **Wōen ** 37:27 Yeah, I think that just kind of reveals the need for, you know, models of anarchist mutual aid where we all support each other. And it's like, being able to have these conversations and support each other outside of these really normative pathways of the nuclear family. And yeah, breaking that prescription on... **Roxanne ** 38:04 I guess I just wanted to add that, for sure, if you want to make sure, as as close as is possible...If you wanted to make sure as much as what's in your capability that your wishes are going to be met with interventions, having an Advanced Directive is the only real way to do that legally. So, if you don't feel like, as Wōen was saying earlier, if you don't feel like you fully trust your family to do the things that you would want to do, you have to have that written down. You have to have it notarized. You really have to go through that process. It's really important. **Inmn ** 38:45 Yeah, and then it seems what is kind of equally as important is having those conversations with your community and with whoever you're designating as your power of attorney, so that like...Yeah, it's like, I'm imagining in this situation that you've built where like, your partner might not be the best person, so you make this Advanced Directive and you designate someone, who's maybe not your partner, as the power of attorney, and then it seems like you have to then have conversations with that person, or with your community as a whole, about what you want. And then...Like, I'm imagining this situation where you do that and then it's like--so it's not entirely falling on one person--maybe one person has to legally make those decisions, but like other people can support them or like it can be a little like network of support that like kind of helps hold people to like what your best wishes were? Does that kind of make sense? **Wōen ** 39:53 Absolutely. And it's like…an Advanced Directive is not all encompassing. Like, being able to guide the types of rituals you want and...Yeah, like, every little detail that you want, you should be able to have, but you have to have those conversations and they have to be on going with as many of your loved ones as possible. So, the Advanced Directive is kind of a way to safeguard against the powers that be from taking control of your life and your death. But, it [hard to tell, but probably "lasts"] like a lot of other guidance that relies on being able to talk about it. **Inmn ** 40:42 So, this is something that I was kind of thinking about with this is like if...So, say maybe that in this hypothetical that I don't have like the best relationship with my parents, or say I have a fine relationship with my parents who are still alive, but I don't think they would make the best decisions, so I designate someone from, you know, my chosen family network to be my power of attorney. But then, you know, I get sick. I get into an accident. And suddenly, my family, my biological family and my chosen family, are in the same room. Is there? I imagine those situations can get pretty contentious, especially for my biological family to find out that they do not have the power of attorney. Like, I guess, obviously, you should maybe have those conversations with your family, but like I...You know, I would rather...I would rather not have that conversation with my family where I'm like, "Hi, I have taken away your medical power of attorney over me." But I also don't want to like necessarily entirely pass that off to my friends to deal with. Like...I don't know, have you like seen situations like that that were contentious, went well, or like, do you have any tips for navigating that? **Wōen ** 42:24 Well, I mean, in different forms I've seen it. I think it's important to say, once you have your power of attorney designated the family no longer have...like, they don't have control. The power of attorney does. And so like in a situation like you're describing, I think, the idea of communal care comes in, where you can have...Like, maybe the person who is your health care advocate isn't necessarily the one who is negotiating with the family or mediating. Just having more people involved to take care of the situation, I think is the best advice I can give. **Roxanne ** 43:20 Yeah, I would say, you know, I always push towards tending towards collaboration when possible. So if someone's family is just absolutely unwilling to work with, you know, the chosen family or the person who has power of attorney then honestly that situation actually just hurts them more. So, I think as much as people can collaborate, the better. And recognizing and appreciating the fact that everyone in a situation is going through some kind of fear and grief, and we don't always behave our best in those situations. So, trying to be generous with each other and give each other time and space to--you know, I'm not saying you have to deal with someone using abusive language towards you or anything like that--but just, you know, recognizing that this can be a real space of grief and that collaboration might not seem possible at first and then it is. I've had situations where collaboration seemed really possible. And then the friend's family member flipped out and tried to get us all kicked out of the hospital. This is before I was a nurse and was just a really kind of traumatic situation for everyone but ended up--like this is actually the situation that really got me on the tip of like, "Oh, we have to have Advanced Directives. This is like imperative." But yeah, I think, as Wōen already said, as much as people can work with each other and collaborate, even if you've been told stories throughout your whole friendship with someone about, you know, what a monster their parent is, or whatever, just like focus on the task at hand, which is helping your friend get safe, and accessible, and good care for as long as they can. And if you need the family to be a part of that, great. And if a family has to go--because sometimes the family's gotta go--you get to make that call. And it's like, if they gotta go, they gotta go. But hopefully that won't be the case. I think it's just...like from a harm reductionist standpoint. **Inmn ** 46:02 Yeah, yeah. Does a family have any legal recourse against a power of attorney? Like, I can imagine a family believing that they have some kind of legal recourse, but like could they sue people? Could they challenge it? **Wōen ** 46:22 I mean, I'm gonna say, no. I know that that happens like a lot of legal challenges happen. But in the moment, I think, what should guide is that health care and funeral services will honor the healthcare power of attorney. So yeah, I think that that is a risk in a really contentious situation, but it is not likely that the healthcare system or the funeral professionals will dishonor the Advanced Directive. **Roxanne ** 47:12 And it might be a situation, like in a hospital sort of setting, it might be a thing where they kind of set up a mediation with an ethics board sort of thing. But at the end of the day, the legal document is the legal document. Yeah. **Inmn ** 47:30 Yeah. And, I'm imagining that the answer to this is along a similar lines, but like, in the reverse situation, if I don't have a power of attorney designated or an Advanced Directive, but I have, you know, my friends that I've had these conversations with about this or I have a journal entry or something about this, I'm guessing that doesn't have...like, at the end of the day, it's the the family or the next of kin, whoever has been legally designated has all of that power to make those decisions? **Wōen ** 48:07 Yeah, and again, that's where a united community who can help, you know, maybe approach the family to be able to negotiate or collaborate. Yeah, that would be the right place to start. But also, if that's not possible, knowing that you can still hold space for your grief as a community even if you're separated from the actual process of dying and death, and that you can enact the depths of meaning that you need and connection with each other. Yeah. **Roxanne ** 48:07 Yeah. **Inmn ** 49:02 Um, to kind of switch gears a little bit, this is a weird question. God. How much does it cost to die? Like obviously, you know, if you do die then that expense is not going to be your responsibility, but I'm imagining this situation like from--I don't know if y'all have seen that movie Little Miss Sunshine. [Roxanne makes an affirmative noise] But like, the grandpa dies, and they're like, "It'll cost this much money to get the body," and they're like, "We don't have that." So, they steal the body. Yeah, how much does it cost to die and have your remains something or anothered? I don't know what...I don't know what a good word is. **Wōen ** 49:55 Yeah, yeah. I mean, I can definitely speak to after death. I think the national average has risen, but like a few years ago it was around $8,000 to do a really normal funeral service like burial. More and more people are choosing cremation because it is cheaper, even though it is getting more expensive. And the average cremation cost is anywhere from $1000 to $3000 based on what type of package you buy from the funeral home. There's a lot of ways that funeral homes can be predatory. Not all funeral homes are predatory, but the vast majority are. And every year it gets more expensive. So yeah, it just depends on your form of disposition. So like, if you're doing cremation it's gonna be a lot cheaper. But often people choose that because it's cheaper, not because of thoughts of that's exactly what they wanted, you know? They're thinking about the financial situation of the family, and yeah, it shouldn't be that way. They should have the type of ritual and disposition that they want. Yeah, it's a pretty horrifying situation. Yeah. **Inmn ** 51:28 And, like, what happens to...You know, normally when you go to the hospital there's a bill, but if you die, like who has to pay for the care that you received? **Roxanne ** 51:44 Yeah, your family will get that debt as far as I understand. They're a next of kin kind of situation. **Inmn ** 52:00 So, when I think about my own wishes around my remains, you know, one of those fantasies or ideas is that I would love to, you know, not be embalmed. I would love to have my body rot in the ground. Is that possible? **Wōen ** 52:16 Absolutely. To start, the only federal law around death is that you don't have to be embalmed. It's a strange, actually good law as kind of a response to an exploding funeral industry I think around--I don't exactly remember--decades ago. And so a lot of advocates pushed for that to happen. Yeah, so you definitely don't have to be embalmed even if you go to a funeral home. And if they say like, "This is the only way," they're lying. But luckily that's happening less and less because natural burial, or what they call green burial, is getting a lot more popular. And it's, I think in all states now in this country you can find a place at least within like 100 miles. But, I would advocate that if you have access to land in any way, you should do a home burial, even if that means you have to go through some bureaucracy and like create an official cemetery. You should do that because you've now created a burial ground that others can be buried at in the type of way that you want, to honor rot, to honor the ecosystem. Yeah, so definitely what you want is very possible. **Inmn ** 54:15 Cool. Um, yeah, can--I'm sure it's complicated state by state--but like, can you if you own land, or you know someone that owns land, they can just designate part of it as a cemetery and then people can get buried there? Is that like? What is that process like? **Wōen ** 54:39 It really is county by county. Yeah, county by county. Yeah, it's really...I would say where we, where I am in the southeast, as a general statement, in any rural area it is widely practiced still and it's very easy to do home burial. And as another general statement, you just...you can't do this within city limits. And I think that, for good reason, because, you know, they are hubs of capitalism with land turning over and...Like, from where we're sitting even, you know, half a mile down the road, they're desecrating a Black cemetery that they just unearthed that had been paved over at least twice. So it's...I think, like, yeah. So, being able to be outside of the city limits is the best option and most accessible. I know some states are more difficult. And there's more...like there's more red tape. I would say to research where you live. Yeah. And really think about doing this for your community. **Roxanne ** 55:59 What a gift. We live in a time where land and space is becoming--I mean, has been, is becoming--such an intense battlefield for resources. It's just like a really, really intense thing to have is land and space. So being able to provide that for people for free, even just to put their body in is such an incredible resource. **Wōen ** 56:34 Yeah, I know there's...I know there's a lot of kind of...I've heard of some wild ways to have your remains dealt with that...Maybe just to add a little bit of fun levity to the situation. But uh, I've heard you can get turned into diamonds now? **Roxanne ** 56:58 Yeah. **Inmn ** 57:00 Cool. **Wōen ** 57:00 You can get turned into a bowling ball. **Inmn ** 57:03 You can get turned into a bowling ball? I feel like this is a plot to a movie from the 90s. **Wōen ** 57:10 Yeah, I mean, it's...Yeah, you can do a lot with cremated remains. Pretty cool. **Roxanne ** 57:18 Mushroom soup. **Wōen ** 57:19 Uh-huh **Roxanne ** 57:20 I'm really into the soup, personally. **Inmn ** 57:22 The mushroom soup? **Roxanne ** 57:24 Yeah. **Inmn ** 57:25 What is the mushroom soup? **Wōen ** 57:27 What the mushrooms do. I would say it is a little...there needs to be more research on this mushroom soup. But, fungus is a late stage decomposer and this mushroom soup is something you're supposed to be buried in. That's what they're proposing. But often initial decomposition is way too hot and will eat up fungus. And so, it's a little bit not completely thought out. Yeah, so I wouldn't advocate for the mushroom soup, but I would advocate for, you know, creating an aerobic environment to be buried in so you rot really well. And you don't have to worry, the fungus will be there. They will be there to eat up your bones and all your desiccated tissue. Yeah. **Roxanne ** 58:30 I'm picturing like ground lasagna, you know, where there's like dirt, and worms, and things, and then like a layer of mycelial...input. **Wōen ** 58:47 Yeah, that makes the world go round. **Inmn ** 58:51 Yeah. And you can, like on a similar vein, I've heard in Oregon you can get composted? **Wōen ** 59:03 Yeah, I think now it's legal in eight states. It started in Seattle. They call it human composting or natural organic reduction is another term they use. But basically, they're accelerating the decomposition of your soft tissues. I think it's a really awesome thing, especially for folks who don't have access to land because you become soil really fast. And I think a lot of them partner with forest areas where they'll spread your soil. Yeah, I think it's awesome. And I really hope that they make it accessible, you know, like the rest of the Green Death movement. It remains to be seen. But, I hope that that happens. **Inmn ** 1:00:14 Thanks so much for listening. This turned into a much longer episode than we thought it would, which is great that there's just so much to talk about around this topic. So, that's the end of part one. If you enjoyed the show, please go talk to your community about death and tell us about it. And, think about filing an Advanced Medical Directive and power of attorney. We will be back next week with the second half of this episode where me and Roxy will talk a lot more about what it means to be a death doula.

We're here to help you – not to sell you!Transcript:JulieYeah. So how was the hurricane Andrew?AndrewIt was great. You know, it's kind of like you build up all this emotion and anticipate emotion and you don't really want anything to happen like you, don't you? Because that's. That's really terrible, right? But then you're like, Oh, we're not in it. Like, could it be a little bit rougher outside the wind, be a little bit stronger? That's terrible to say.AndrewBut like, sowe had, like, I don't know, 40 to 60 mile an hour winds, which really isn't that big a deal. It's a big deal because it's, you know, eight, ten, 12 hours. It just keeps going and going and going versus like a storm rolling through our biggest thing that happened. So I'm in Tampa Bay by the beaches.AndrewOne, I was we have the Alexis the show I the ones with a screen they're terrible. Oh yeah I think the.BethShow.AndrewEcho show whatever it is. Yeah. And so it shows like the news and I'm like, all these words they use are just like, oh, my goodness. Like, the rest of the world thinks we're. We're like, We're dead. It's awful. And basically from the truth, basically, basically. So meanwhile.BethPeople in Florida are actually writing rafts down.AndrewYeah, they're like having fun taking pictures, trying to get there's now like kind of viral spots that will always flood. And side note, they flood like, any time anyways. So, of course, a hurricane comes by and it looks really cool and floods all over the place, but it's in a flood anyways. So fortunately everything was all good. The kids had three days off of school, which is insane.AndrewHurricane days, great. Hopefully they there aren't too many more. I'll have to make them up and we start earlier. We get out sooner, so that's kind of annoying for some are plans where we will plan everything but I mean, I feel like it's the summit is coming up and then that means there's a hurricane. So hopefully this is one that's out of the way.AndrewI'm like, oh, it's going to July, It's going to die early because they all usually get it bad up over Louisiana compared to.JulieEither hits Andrew or it's me in Louisiana or yeah, somehow it goes to Texas, which has happened a few times too. But so far we've been lucky this year. But you know, knock on wood. So in Oklahoma, when I lived in Oklahoma, it was always when the weather guy pulled out his sparkly tie that were for sure getting hit with the tornado.BethThat is part of my.JulieYeah, it was like they were like, so excited and like, well, don't be quite this exciting.AndrewThese tornadoes are terrifying to me.JulieToo excited about them.AndrewYeah. Tornadoes aren't like, oh, we have a couple of days to plan and like, if it gets really bad because at least for us, like if it were to be really, really bad, we could go like 20, 30 miles east and you're fine. Like, it's still going to be really bad weather. But, you know, the hurricane force winds aren't, you know, as big as like the hurricane going through the whole southeast.AndrewLike it's like, you know, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 miles from the center. So we could just go towards Orlando where the builder show is and be fine if it's it's hitting really rough for us. But a tornado. Like, here I am.JulieYeah, there's definitely a good warning with the hurricane, but it's hard for me because the hurricanes are like, should we go? Should we go? What's everybody else, do you know? Yeah. Yeah. So that's hard for me because we're, you know, newish down here. Six years, I guess.AndrewYeah. And after I get used to it, I'm sure there's. I think there's a paradox name for that where like, you prepare, you prepare, you prepare. Nothing happens eventually. Like, we're not doing anything. No one put their shutters up on our street, which last storm, everyone's like, Hey, you need help, Hey, you need help. And I was like, Forget that.AndrewBut what it it made me realize talking to people the next day. So we're in a 2019 KB home, 30 to 85. That'll be our floor plan. That's really great. It sounds like a car. Other than the defective flap on our van and our bathroom that keeps like, rats out, I guess. I don't know that. Like when it when, when there's when it's like, super annoying.AndrewJust like tapping on the house. Yeah. Other than that noise, like dead quiet. I mean, you heard the sound like a bin. Wake us up. So I'm like, This would be perfect marketing if someone wanted to even approach hurricane marketing with building. But it's it's a reality down here in Florida. Everyone else I talked to was like, Oh, my gosh, that storm was so loud.AndrewThe wind was howling. I'm like, Mm. It was really quiet in our house or like, you have new windows and like, yeah, they're like, well, what brands you get, like, I don't know, whatever, like fit the margins for the builder, which I'm sure they're, they're nice, they hit code but they're not going to be super premium windows at all.AndrewBut even then, like it was quiet, like that's worth it. As far as we had three kids, they didn't even wake up as a thing passed by. So big selling point for us. Florida people for sure is just like little bit, little bit ease and peace and quiet. So yeah let's well let's jump into a into story time actually.AndrewLet's get this thing started. So welcome to episode 301 and they are Dr. Andrew Speaker. And with me today is Beth Russell and Julie, Dani and Ariel. I read your 1300.JulieWe didn't start a new season. We talked about it, but we're at 301.AndrewWe got to keep going. We got to hit 1000. That's the next worth mentioning number, I think is thousand.Julie500, five.BethHundred, over 500 like it was in 500.Andrew500. It's like anniversary dates. Like which ones count? Like we'll be 13 years and February like doesn't count, right. 1315. So that's one.JulieUnlucky number 13. It's like the elevator floors. You just don't know. 13.AndrewMaybe we skip it. Then I'll tell her that we.BethDon't have to do anything that our building yesterday during our walk was like talking about how he was only married once and will only ever be married once. But it's because he got a divorce. I never wanted to get remarried and I was like, Oh, how many years even were you married? And he goes, 13. Oh no, I'll skip next year.Andrew13 Oh, Oh, yeah, yeah.BethInteresting.AndrewBut we got a 14. It's fine. Yeah, let's just not count anymore. It's all made up anyways, so let's do some stories. I'll do mine because mine's quick and fun and easy. There is a townhome project that is for sale, like maybe a two or three minute walk for me, brand new. And we don't have much new construction, so I've been watching it and we drive by it.AndrewIt's this shortcut on the way back to our house. So seeing the progress is fun and they look really nice. But here's the thing that is weird, and they have a sign spinner company they contracted to. Yeah, just. Yeah, bang your head on the keyboard. Same. Your instrument.JuliePerson standing.AndrewThere. Yeah, yeah, that's fine. Better like a really like, you know, top notch, like in person that you trust with your kids to watch or like no, you wouldn't trust this person to do anything with anything. I'm like, Why would you hire this company? And I pass by them every Saturday and Sunday. The spinner is out there standing there in the heat, 90 something degrees.AndrewI'm like, That's torture. This poor person having to sit out there like for 6 hours at a time. They have no teeth. And this is I'm not I sound very negative. I'm coming from the perspective of this is your brand and refreshed reflection of your brand. This is an interaction of your brand says I'll call the name said golf went homes and a sign looks really nice.AndrewAnd next you have this person holding it who maybe hasn't made the best choices. And that's where they're at in life. I don't know where I'm assuming a lot there, but you would not be wise to say, how am I hire that person to represent my brand? That's so weird to me. It's so strange. And the rest of the marketing really isn't that bad.AndrewLike the content they produce, like on Instagram and social to to show the homes off of their pictures are actually pretty decent. It's like, why did you make that decision? Yeah.BethIt it makes me think of I don't I'm doing a plug real quick. But for Carlos, the IT presentation at the summit, it's about consistency and that is like being inconsistent with your brand. Every everything is reflective of your brand and everything from the people you hire to choosing to do a sign spinner in the first place. All of that is reflective of your brand.BethAnd so that is that showing that you're lacking consistency can reflect a lot on and raise some red flags for people when they're pursuing working with you as a brand.AndrewYeah, that's the first perception. Is that the first impression? Yeah.JulieWe don't know the background of the story, but it sounds like it could be that the sales person in that neighborhood was maybe given some leeway to make some decisions or do something that sounds like something an onsite salesperson may want, but maybe not. Maybe you're.AndrewMom. I want to know. I think we are going to tour the model home this weekend just to go.JulieFind out more.BethGo undercover.JulieReport.AndrewIt, go undercover. I don't think they know me. Hopefully not through like I listen to the podcast and now on my poopy list because.BethYou think.AndrewI'm getting a haircut tomorrow. So does that count? I don't know. I'll shave my beard off of like, Oh, look at this little child coming in here. Oh, where's your.BethMother? See that?AndrewNow? I don't even want to see that. I don't know. Do the mustache. Do the mustache one time. Yeah, but I'm like, Oh, the sign spinners. And I feel more that most people are like, This person's in this heat. Oh, my goodness. Like, how why would you do that? Versus like, I think that'll be the first thought versus like, oh, that person looks like maybe not near the most trustworthy.AndrewWhere'd you find this guy? They'll be like, You really paid this person to stand out there in the heat for that long. Like, where's the cooler? Where's the water? Was there a.JulieWhat? If you're saying that it's like the owner's son or something.AndrewI'd feel terrible. And there's, like some challenges there that and this is actually like a good job for the person. I would. I'd feel.BethPretty good. But that's also horrible if they're not hydrating them like, say, that's like this beautiful store background story of like they help this guy out and he's out there spending this time with all these.AndrewGuys, very skilled.BethHigh grade him.AndrewRight.BethNow.AndrewIt's this one camera. It's not the well some propels whatever may be.BethGetting my case back like.AndrewYeah, hook them up look them up. But yeah it's it is strange but I a while back I'm like why didn't they just pre-sale. Why don't they just presale. But I see like maybe the way they had, you know, hopefully prices are still going up. There's very limited land where we are, so maybe that is maximizing profit revenue or maybe not.AndrewI don't know. We'll find out the story at some point, I hope.BethJulie But it's interesting, like from a case study perspective of your local person who has seen these homes go up, you know, it's rare that new homes are going up, albeit single family or townhome. So you're watching it. You're watching, you're waiting and maybe you're in the market. So you try to join a list or you've tried to reach out.BethAnd then that urgency is kind of killed. When you see something that's great, maybe it's not as nice as I thought it was. So yeah, it's it is an interesting case study.AndrewAnd they had some goofy stuff with Zillow, but that could be another. I'll save that for another story. Just some perception of like, Oh, that price looks so much lower than it actually is because it hits a different number of you. We'll do that one next week, I guess. Julie, What you got?JulieYeah. So we always talk about how we kind of hear the same things over and over this week. For me, it's been builders saying that home buyers are coming in and asking for everything they want, you know, price of a home and they want all the extra added features and they need an extra room and they need, you know, just all the things and so it was interesting to some were builders who were really struggling in the last month or two and some were like still doing okay.JulieAnd still hearing the same thing. So I have no data on this. So this is my theory. So you can you can disagree with me if you don't think so. I think one could be that there's a perception by some people that maybe it's a buyer's market right now, whether in their market, it really is or not. So they feel like, ooh, they're desperate.JulieLike I should ask for more. And I don't think we are helping ourselves by like putting all these kind of flash sale things on our websites. You know, I think that makes it look even more like they can ask for those things. My second is, and I think Kevin mentioned this on one of the meetings, that if people are going to my Oklahoma accent almost came out right there to hear it.JulieIf people I don't.AndrewKnow.JulieIf people are paying 7% or over, then they're like, if I'm going to pay this much, I want to get everything I could possibly want. Like I don't want to settle if I'm having to pay a premium right now. But yeah, you know, maxed out my monthly budget, then I want everything I want. And then my third theory is maybe if you just have a lot of nationals in your market and the nationals builders are starting to like throw stuff at people because they're just trying to get it off their books.JulieSo that's my theory. What, what do you all think is making people all of a sudden come in and start asking for more and more?AndrewMore?BethWell, I love what you said about like that high level messaging, you know, on the website screaming different sales, because I think it connects to what Andrea was talking about and how the perception that we're showing people. Right. The perception that we're giving off and it's this it reeks desperate in some cases when the high level or the early part of the sales funnel, you're saying, oh, we're going to give you this and we're going to give you that, well, then people are going to naturally push, especially when they're seeing all these things in the market about how terrible and how historic this market is.BethThey're going to try to see if they can if they can get more out of it. On average right now, I think the national average is 6% in concessions on spec homes. And there's some people probably more likely the the big box builders or even in like the the markets where people are having a bit of desperation where they're giving 9% or more in concessions to people to get these homes moving.BethSo I can't blame the buyer. But at the same time, we have to be aware that on the marketing end, what message are we sending to people and how much are they going to push back and what are they what are they going to take psychologically from this message?JulieAnd I think a lot of the sales people haven't ever had to deal with this, probably if they're have just been in the role in for a few years, I mean, before COVID and all that. So it's also I think, training people on how to deal with that if they come in and just want everything.BethOh, absolutely. It takes a lot of creativity from the sales side of things of how to I think the skill of negotiation has somewhat been lost through the process of COVID and people are slowly on the sales side from what we hear, trying to get it back. But it's, you know, this isn't something that they've run into before and it's really, truly unlike anything any of us have really run into before.BethSo there's a whole different bag of tricks that they have to start developing on the onsite side. And a lot of that is just core creative negotiation.AndrewMm hmm. Yeah, that's right. I think more one. Do we think it's a buyer's market or a seller's market? This is just.JulieWell, yeah.AndrewI don't know. I don't even know. It's like I think the market.JulieYeah, I, it, it's a market. I think it depends on the market and I think that Yeah, I wouldn't, I wouldn't call it a buyer's market. It's just, it's so dependent right now on where you are and what's happening I think.AndrewYeah.BethIt depends on who you talk to. A seller is going to tell you it's a seller's market and a buyer is going to tell you it's a buyer's market and it's just because it's a different perception of reality in either direction. And like you guys just both said, it really depends on where you are trying to.JulieAnd supply is still low, but demand is pretty low too. So it's just a different a different market than we've seen lately.AndrewYeah. You're saying that really maybe thinking that I'm like, what kind of market? It's this thing Like, it's. It's almost white out, you know, It's happening.BethBut identity crisis.AndrewIdentity crisis? Who am I? I don't know. Midlife crisis. But it made me think about, like so when prices were going up, they're going up because it still fit the monthly payment, right? Like, we'll just keep bumping the prices up because rates are 3%, three and half percent, two and a half or whatever percent. You kept going up because it still fit.AndrewIf you know the amount of people that can afford 2500 per month is ex cool, let's just keep going until those you know it's and it's siphoned off safe an office vast amount of people and we're really in the same spot it's just like well how less people can afford 2500 and then the combined monthly payment with the perceived value and so they're like, well, we're not going to spend 2500 or 28 or 2000, whatever number may be if they feel like they're not getting value out of it.AndrewSo they're asking for more asking for more. But it's always been about at least my brain. This could be completely incorrect. Whatever they can afford per month is going to be. That's your that is your market. That's how you could sell, too. So if you have people coming in and their cap is 2500 and all your homes based on the average down payment, based on what people can afford, is going to be 2800.AndrewWhile there's very few people that can move from 25 to 28, unless they're talking about negotiation baths, like are they actually being honest with how much they have? Maybe they have another 50 K over here, they probably don't or another ten K every year, or maybe they can move things around and just delay purchasing. They could pay off that credit card or like, Oh, their truck lease has gone in a few months.AndrewMaybe they could stage. Things were like, Ah, they don't have a car for a little bit. This is, this sounds like fraud. I'm saying fraud. Like, let's not get a new car for a couple of months. Now you can afford this house. And if you need to get a new car later or just just wait on that a little bit and all these conversations that are outside of my scope of of contacts, but it's all about the monthly payment is what I feel like.AndrewSo I think the value is where they're looking at. Julie As far as they're asking for more because they feel like I'm not getting that much home at the payment, that it has to be at 6% or 7%. Even so they I rather rent here because I have all these lifestyle resort luxury amenities that are actually better than than buying right now.AndrewSo I think marketing though, like I'm looking at a I'm a builder here. We're rolling back we're rolling back home prices over 250,000 in savings. Right? That's like kind of terrifying, right? That's like.BethWalmart question.AndrewYeah, rolling back. That's definitely a rollback of prices. I think even the smiley face rolls. I think that's a fair remember, we're rolling back prices, but that's like, oh gosh, like why better negotiate? Like, I better try to push the price down even if they don't offer. I think that's like training people to push the price down, try to get more.AndrewTry to get more. Try to get more.BethYeah. And then from a marketing and a high level like C-suite conversation of are we priced right in the market and are we you know we we've seen builders that out priced themselves purposely and then had to roll back their pricing in order to better fit in the market and adjusting pricing may not be the solution. It depends.BethBut going back to what you were saying, Andrew, is data was released recently that said post-tax median income wise, new home buyers are spending like up to 70% of their income on housing right now.AndrewI believe.BethAnd it's like because they have to if they need to move. Right. But that's where I have to.AndrewYeah, exactly. And I still think builders are not really marketing new versus used that way. Yeah. And that's always been a thing like I think we can buy we go back five, 300 episodes ago, 285 episodes go and be like, Oh, we need to sell new versus used new versus used. Like my example with the the windows or your windows are new.AndrewThe average hurricane decibels in your house will be 70 instead of 90. Well, that's a pretty that's like chainsaw versus a I don't know, microwave being on whatever the noises at the noise level for a hurricane. But I think that's still something that is still missed all over the place like new carpet. But what's his name? Quint Ren Lears what I was talking about that there's no toenails in our carpet.AndrewWhen I go look at those, there's nothing. You're like, Oh gosh, that's disgusting. There's no this, there's no that. But you're like, Oh, now that you say that, like lay on this carpet like it is clean. No one else has been on this carpet for the past.BethThis toilet hasn't leaked.AndrewThis toilet hasn't looked like all those things. I think that is like there's tons of value in that without having to go down in price or add more or give more concessions. Just if we talk about it a bit more.BethYeah. And in this market, more than ever, existing homes are looking at new homes as their competition because there's so little existing homes on the market everywhere that they have to.AndrewWhat fun, what a great market. It's like everything everybody. What's that on Reddit? Maybe people like it and it rates. It's a conference. The situation's like, well, you're the I don't want to say the word because I need like my own censoring. So it's like, Hey, am I the ahole or not? And so then people rate the situation like this is kind of like where everyone kind of sucks here thing.AndrewIt's not a buyer's market, it's not a seller's market. Beth, what do you have?BethWell, on a happy note.AndrewYeah, let's do some.BethHappiness regarding buyers. You're just being a buyer. We close on our home next week, so why the time.AndrewIs so exciting?BethYes, it's. It's very exciting. And by the time this episode goes live, we will be closing. Are we living in it yet? But we will be closed on it. And it was funny when we did our walk yesterday, like I said that we had, we were talking to our builder and my husband was referencing like one of the first episodes that I mentioned us going through this process and building our home.BethAnd Kevin was like, He can get it done. How fast? Like, there's no way. And he did it.AndrewSo.BethMan Shout out Charles, Charlie at Die on a Tough lot. So I'm super excited.AndrewWhat are you most excited for with your home?BethHonestly, it's like the home itself. There's a lot of things up the porch. If you've seen the porch, say more. If you haven't, you need to go and find a picture of the porch. And that experience. But it's just being settled like we're living in an Airbnb. This isn't our space. This isn't our stuff. You know, I miss our our pillows.BethI miss the rest of my clothes. I've been rotating through the same clothes for like three months now, so I'm just excited to get the rest of our stuff back and feel settled as a family because we're supposed to be here at least three years, which is long term for us. Yeah, so and it could be even longer.BethSo we really are just excited to feel settled.AndrewHmm. That sounds like a Hallmark commercial. Julie. You could probably really take that and make it sound really good. Feel So let's write a book. Let's write a book about that, Be at home, feel sad. There's a lot of value in that. Yeah, it's like the journey is done. Like we arrived. Like we're here. You can breathe.BethYeah. And final content coming. So, like, I'll do a walk through of the house. I'm going to try to get professional photos of the house, which is done because once we move in, because we live in our homes, is going to be too messy.AndrewLike there's nothing like a model home. Are the neighbor to us. He's OCD. I mean that with all all endearment, like your mother's yard three times like the same spot. It's amazing. His house is a museum. It's insane. I'm like, I don't know. People live like that. And he has guests all the time. But your house. Our house?AndrewNo kids, not you.JulieThat is to make believe.AndrewEven like the. Like I feel like it's like, what's that? And Christmas vacation where the neighbor next door, like their house is like, all these things, everything's breakable. You walk in, you're like, Oh, no, this base is six feet tall. I don't want to stand next to it. Yeah. So that'll be that's going to be the pictures ahead of time.AndrewDid you do any pictures during the build as far as like to know where any electrical things are or that's just not your, your level of commitment to that type of content.BethPersonal. Yes. No no. Part of that is that we weren't local when a lot of that stage of construction was happening. So we have a walkthrough video after electrical. Okay, But it's a little darker. You can't really see much because obviously there's no light and it's a video, so it's not as high quality in this case. And the time of day we have trees blocking the sun too.BethSo like I could make it out and I have like a good idea where things are. And I saw a frame and took a bunch of pictures at frame but could have done a better job.AndrewBut my last overly personal question, this is the first time you lived in the South. You were in Texas before.BethNo, we've lived in the South for most of the time. My daughter was born in North Carolina.AndrewOkay. Okay. There you go. That's that is south. It cools down there. But to me, you have to have fans in every room. Is. Is that you? Okay?BethNo. So here's the thing.AndrewShe's crazy.BethI know. No, it's actually part of his budget. Part of it is like, I'll try not to put a fan in eventually, but the fans that like the vendor was charging for, like, I'm not going to pay that. Oh, I can. I can put in a fan.AndrewAndrew your hubby is pretty cool. Does he even do the latter.BethIn this house? He will because they're very nice. Nice. Yeah. We'll put in our own fans in some places, but we have fans all on the porch. We have fans in the main living areas and then I'm the person that like keeps the air on like 68 nice at night.AndrewI like it. That was our first when we moved in. That was the first thing we went to Home Depot or Lowe's. What I think pretty sure is Home Depot. I think that's the thing. Growing up, you either go to Lowe's or Home Depot and that's how you stick with your life. I'm a Home Depot person. That's just where I'm loyal to Home Depot.AndrewI want the floors that look like that. I want the orange and white signs. I think we bought like 14 fans. And that was the first thing we did before. Yeah. Wow. The fans are coming in. Yeah, we need the fans. So, look.BethI'm just thankful for Labor Day sales because it's helping.AndrewUs out. True.JulieRight. It is. It's good timing. That's true.AndrewIt is perfect timing. We'll see if there's any builder of Labor Day sales. That'll be fun to watch.

This is a this is interesting from NAHB talk. We love them. Zillow Redfin Partnership increases exposure for new construction listings. So this one is interesting. Essentially, all your listings will be pushed over to Redfin and Zillow and Redfin are being friends. It feels kind of shocking, but it's mutually beneficial.AndrewWhat do I think about this?BethYeah, I think it's exciting.JulieI think it's a great thing. I mean, it it sounds good. It's more exposure for the builders. I don't see any cons from our end on it.BethBut I think the big win from it is that they're syndicating the builders content, not just the MLS listings, which is huge because that is the thing that was been that was so hurtful to so many builders was like, No, we don't want to use the MLS. We want to have control over all the content and not it not be the MLS content.BethAnd so the fact that they're going to be putting their community pages on which if you have your feed set up properly, then it's the content that you own from your own website. So that part is the cherry on top.AndrewThat is, that is really nice. Yeah. More exposure the better. I like it. I think it's a, it's a win for everybody. Zillow, Redfin builders. Yeah. The whole home construction industry like the more I think we forget about that, the more people that see where it says what's out and selling says new construction. It's like blue and white text.AndrewYou start seeing that more and more and more like that just fuels the demand. Just like if you're car shopping and all sudden or this is opposite here, hurricanes and saltwater and Teslas apparently don't mix. So now there's all these not so great jokes about Tesla. They catch on fire. The saltwater, apparently, and the batteries. I had no idea.AndrewThere's been four Tesla fires since Tuesday night where I'm at in Pinellas County. I don't know how I'm playing them. I thought Xbox with my hands, which is like a foot wide, but I'm like, Oh, enough. So that Lindsey, my wife, texted me and we are looking to get in Tesla next year. It's like, Are you trying to kill me?AndrewAll these Teslas are catching on now.BethThere's just the nightmares, the awareness.AndrewThank you so well, don't go like in the water, like a submarine. This I think that's the that's the goal there. But it just increases the awareness, increases demand. Just having it out there that much more, which is great for for all builders that's Yeah.BethAnd I think like it's a good like we're getting recognition that we're important to you know what I mean? Like we want to be seen more in our content matters, our listings matters, Our, our homes matter. Everything that we do matters. Okay? And so, like, put us out there more, man, And it's right on the heels. It feels like we were heard.AndrewRight?JulieYeah, it did feel like for a while we were getting buried on some of these sites by all the existing homes and we would be like on another tab if you didn't do that. So. Oh, yes, It does seem like now that new construction is such a big percentage of what's available and out there we're getting a little more love.JulieThat's nice.AndrewThat's right. But it's the the slogan for the Builder show. Oh, it's right there. It's on my brain. Oh, my goodness. I don't.BethKnow. It's not my.AndrewBrain. All home start here. And people are like, Oh, that's cute. And they think about it like, Oh, I want to say a bad word. Can I say bad word? I'm not going to say it backward. Be like, Oh, I be like legit, like every new home. Some people are anti-development, right? They're like, not my backyard or whatever it may be.AndrewBut you know, okay, so homes are going away. Attrition just naturally, hurricanes, they're going away all home start here. So homebuilding is so important. Like every new home starts with a builder, like the homes that are 50 years old. Good. 20, 73, that home that's 50 years old with all the character at some point had no character, wasn't redone and painted 15, 20 times.AndrewSo yeah, just the awareness on new homes and just that say respect. That sounds a little weird. And I'm like, like sucking up, but like, it's pretty important. Like new homes. New homes are important. Yeah. Let's go to some. To me, this is maybe I'm spicy today. A little spicy.BethThis one's from real spicy.AndrewI'm like, double caffeinated may for some real estate news.com. It's titled Maui Broker Hanging up on Vultures Holding on to hope. So I read this, and I'm friends with someone from Hawaii. We train together as as often as we can. And I'm like, Man, this, like, gets me fired up a little bit for some reason. Essentially, we had all day that we I didn't experience this.AndrewI can't count that as mine. All the fires in Hawaii and just the developers and brokers and just investors, anyone trying to get that land which is so limited and also so valuable and just kind of like disregarding like there's people still like they can't go to their homes. There's the, what do they call them? I forgot the zones you can't go to because they're sold active, burning all that already jumping in like vultures is.AndrewBut this article describes trying to pick up the land or houses that burned down. But were y'all's feelings and thoughts on this very complex history? Very complex history. So it's delicate.BethThe one one word ick.AndrewYes.BethIt's sad. Like we you know, we had had this conversation with the builder the other day and and prep for my summit talk. I had this conversation of like, we forget that this is an extremely personal purchase and journey. Like these people are going through an extremely personal thing and we're just like, people are just going in there and being grubby, you know?BethAnd it just it's just.AndrewIt's just epic.BethI understand it. I get it. But it's like.AndrewYeah, I get it. Yeah.JulieAnd then because of that, they put a moratorium on the land transactions, which is bad. Yes, it's good because they did it for a good reason. But then it's also bad for the people who really are trying to do, you know, a land transaction that was already happening or just trying to do business and get back to normal.JulieSo they're having to do it because of people doing wrong things and then it's slowing everything else down. So it's just frustrating that those people are screwing things up for everybody.AndrewYes, it I didn't intentionally try to set up this way, but 2 minutes ago I was like, we need this, like respect for homebuilding. All homes start here. And then this kind of goes it's like, well, how can say both things? It's like, But if we want that, like less of the attitude of not in my backyard or like, Oh, developers are this or this, it's like, Oh, this type of article, like, doesn't really help even kind of forgetting about the not forgetting about the history of like the United States to the Kingdom of Hawaii and like that history there.AndrewA lot of people in Hawaii. Have you know, a lot of mistrust to people on the mainland and all that, rightfully so. So then you have people from the mainland trying to come in and once again, and their their perspective, get this land. This sounds like it's a little political, but I'm not trying to be political at all.AndrewIt's but it's yeah, it's really interesting reading that. And the broker gives his stories about he's taken all the calls. He's the one wanting to voice his thoughts and concerns and feelings to the people calling, trying to buy the property that's burned down while these he had, I think, had eight, eight or nine agents in his office. Only two of them have somewhere to live.AndrewAnd they're still working, probably because they have no work, limited places where they can go. So working is actually like a nice break from wherever they're having to stay at and they're having people like, Hey, I'm trying to get this house, like just interested in buying it looks like more. And they're like, Are you kidding me? Like, I'm sleeping like and my mother in law's house like, Yeah, get out of here.BethLiterally, the dust has settled and cleaned up and it's just, you know, it's sad.AndrewIt's like the roofing ads and flooding ads. We start to get like, the day of the hurricanes. You're like, Come on. Or especially they start knocking on the doors and they're like, Hey, let me inspect your roof. It might have been damaged. And you're like, Get out. This is insurance fraud. But a little like most of the time, like, where are you from?AndrewAnd we were yeah, they truly try to try to push you on that. Oh, let's see. We got one more from Inman. This one work. For all I know, we had some trouble with with getting that pulled up. Okay. Okay. Here we go. Let me get here. Home buyer mortgage demand picks up for the first time in six weeks.AndrewWhat's exciting.JulieWhich is good I mean, it's. It's up 2%.AndrewYeah, I feel like a little There are.JulieMany things that could, like, affect that, you know? So, I mean, it sounds like it's exciting and maybe it's exciting. But also I look at it and I'm like.AndrewOh, okay.BethThat's interesting.JulieIf we keep setting up.BethWatch all this more engine housing news, like every day, they're like half a percent, you know, like they're celebrating every little like blip or change, which I get. But it's almost like, okay, like just like you said, it's like you don't really have a reaction to it anymore.AndrewThat you're kind of numb to it or used to it, or you're like, This almost feels like like a parent asking a kid, So how's your homework going? Well, I'm almost done. I did so much better than last week. Just forget about that. I stayed behind a year and I'm repeating same grade because we're actually down. We're down 27%, but we're up 2% this week, which is you always have to go deeper.AndrewIn articles, which I did a post on on LinkedIn seems like Monday or Tuesdays I get in some mood where it's really easy to write. I'll probably start putting them on the website instead of just posting to LinkedIn so that everyone can see it. But like you really have to deep dive on to like if a metric is being shown, especially a single metric like mortgage demand picks up and that's applications.AndrewSo applications increased 2%. You need more context to that than just one than just one number was a pretty much hold. And ten of my my blog posts I then I talked about like we only understand what is applications is that unique applications maybe people are actually I don't even know like it's getting nerdy It's it's actually unique applications are up or people now applying to more than one place.AndrewAnd so applications are up because there's more applications being submitted. I don't know. So actually applications down, I don't know.BethBut depends on what they of these two.AndrewYeah, total applications could be up, but unique applications or household applications, whatever you want it to be tied to a person could be flat, even up or down. But I mean, this all seems positive in the right direction. Of course, interest rates are, you know, all over the place. Yeah, they're they're fun to watch. I follow Lance Lambert on Twitter for my interest rate news.AndrewI think a lot of people do. He's like on it every day, multiple times throughout the day. So.BethYeah, it'll be interesting to see like when this podcast goes live, what the latest article is or what the percentage, you know what I mean?AndrewI hope it keeps going up, but it's a fall. I mean, if you look at just Google Trends or if you're if you have home builder home builder datacom access like the seasonality is obvious. This is the back half of the year. It goes down. That's just what it does. It's just how it is. Yeah. So be interesting.AndrewSee how that how that goes. But there's also inventory for existing homes is still all time low. So will it kind of counteract that? I don't know. I guess we'll find out. Buckle up. Buckle up. We want to go on to Kurt Favorites or did anything else pop up we should talk about because we do have three news articles.AndrewWe kicked one out.JulieWell, we had the question of the week.AndrewOh, Crime of the week. How can we forget that?JulieYou see that one?AndrewIt said, Who wants to read it if you haven't pulled out before me? That's good.BethOh, I don't trust myself to read it. I'm like, going to fumble like three one.AndrewI was written like 400 bucks, so she should probably read it.JulieI'll try it. Right? Yes. And we won't say the builder here. Okay. But we'll say, basically, I keep thinking about social media and how feasible would it be for a home builder to try to monetize it. I wonder if you have any experience coaching home builders on this or would be willing to approach the topic on one of your podcast.JulieI'm not sure what monetizing could mean for us when our core following on Instagram is real estate agents and our post are more brand and sales oriented, seems like we'd be able to monetize easier for audience was made up of more vendors and subcontractors, and we offer sponsored content to promote materials we use to build our home. So they're asking about monetizing, making money off of their social media accounts and posts.JulieSo I have lots of thoughts. You'll have thoughts.BethI have so many people, if they're not watching the podcast recording, they should be right now just because of the faces not cooperating with me.AndrewI was like.BethI'm thinking.AndrewReally positive. Hurry, be honest.JulieThank you for sending a question. That's amazing and we love it. And this is such a fun one that I don't think we've ever I don't think we've ever talked about before. So if you sent this question, this is amazing. Thank you. And yeah, we have.AndrewBuilt some parameters.BethAbout this before. Like it's a natural thought that people have probably looked into, like people are making money off these platforms. Maybe we can extend our revenue and make some money off of this, too, but let's think through it a little bit.AndrewYeah, maybe we focus on. So let's let's define monetization. The the person asking the question stated that they're looking to sponsor based off of like manufacturer sponsors. So not trying to get like money from Instagram or Facebook or whatever. So like hey will post your I don't know, whatever brand facets, cool color, 300 bucks for and they'll do a post about it or like a series of posts.AndrewSo that type of monetization versus trying to get 100,000 followers and have you know, million plus views on reels which that seems much more daunting, although they should be doing the same things to get that amount of use. Because if whoever's doing the buy essentially on their account, we're like, great, your reals, get 400 views, here's $6 or something.AndrewI don't know.JulieSo and to be fair, we used to do this back when I started, when like if we wanted to print a new brochure, sometimes there would be vendors come to us and be like, We will help you pay for that. If you put things about our products in the brochure, you know what I mean? So this isn't a new, totally new concept.JulieIt's just new to this this avenue or this distribution channel. But I would look at what what is your goal of your social media accounts? Is it to make money through avenues like that or is it to connect with your potential and current home buyers? So I think that would be number one if changing the avenue is going to impact that in a negative way.JulieIf you start talking more to subcontractors and vendors, then you're not talking to your number one customer and audience who are home buyers. Number two, when you think of monetization, you're thinking of giving somebody else those advertising eyes, but you are you're advertising yourself with that. You may not think of that organic as like you're selling yourself, but that's your own space.JulieSo I think you need to protect space. And then if you do want to do something along those lines, I would think of it more in the terms of a collaboration than a monetization So to collaborate with another social media account or something, I can see possibilities there. But the monetization I can't see how that long term would bring you more success to your home building goals than using that avenue for, you know, for your number one goal, which is, I'm assuming, selling homes.BethYeah. And I think like, while it's tempting, we have to look at who we are on Instagram. Are we an influencer or are we a brand? And, you know, it's the brand who collaborates with the influencer and pays the influencer for the posts, not the brand, taking money to do posts for other brands. And so just knowing our role on these platforms like, you said, and how how we are perceived to the customer or the people interacting with us on these platforms is vital in that decision making of if we pursue because it is interesting, right?BethIt's just like if you have a model home and you can link your model home furniture to a store and get a little bit of a kickback to, you know, sending them to the store to for buying that product because they found it in your model home. Like, it's an interesting concept to look into, but ultimately, you have to know who you are in that scenario and who you are to be your audience before you make that decision.JulieAnd is it a distraction? You know what I mean? Like it's just distracting you from your your main goal.BethYeah, I like the idea of the collaboration of like, you know, collaborating with the the brand who makes this faucet. And I'm showing this faucet being used in a beautiful trend setting brand new home versus, you know, me selling that faucet.AndrewMm hmm.JulieYou're still speaking to your home buyers.AndrewI don't know if there's anything to add based on what he said, and I have no idea that was perfection. But I think the only thing I could add is we have this very expensive resource, finite of time. And if you were to spend, let's say, 5 hours a week dedicated to this, could that 5 hours which five times 50 to 200 fit, say 200 hours a year, be put toward something else that would have much higher revenue, much higher profit and then for your career growth, because I assume this is the market that ask the question could that then so that 200 hours per year benefit them better for their career and some otherAndrewway? And I feel like the answer is yes. Like I think learning how to grow the account, that's very valuable, especially if you were to, let's say you're working with a regional builder and then you kind of went to National, you're like, Hey, I took this local builder, regional builder from 2000 followers to 20,000, you know, I work for a big builder like, Oh, well, you know how to do this process That could be valuable.AndrewBut I think chasing this is I don't mean it offensive, but like chasing kind of like the pennies and dollars when you could you're kind of ignoring the, the checks with the commas in them. I'm trying to get like 200 bucks, 300 bucks when it should be like we're trying to make 20, 30, 40, 50, 100,000 on, on selling other products.JulieYeah. I don't think the math adds up.AndrewYeah. And just like the time, but maybe it could be a fun. We have interns or you're just intern paid interns. I mean, I think all interns should be paid, but we had like, a team of people, like, Hey, we have someone who's at X rate per hour. They're dedicated to this. They manage and run it. Cool. That can make sense.AndrewBut I would be wary of like some of that we talk to on a daily basis. I'm like marketing coordinator, director whatever their title might be. Like, Hey, I'm a spend a fifth of my week focused on this week. Oh, like you could probably have a lot more revenue driven activities doing something else versus that. I think it's a fun idea.AndrewLike it's a good idea.JulieLike it's fun topic.AndrewYeah, yeah. Shout out to just putting it out there and asking it. Most people I think, would not ask it. So. Yeah, yeah.BethAnd I love it. You talking about I think it was a great question.AndrewYeah. Well especially we see in other industries all the time. Yeah. Like all over the place. But I think it is, we are industry so special. There's big revenue attached to it. So then one transaction lot of revenue compared to, let's say, you know, I'm in the fitness space and so if you're selling like a supplement, you're like, cool, it makes six bucks per, per jug of whatever or whatever.AndrewSo it's a little different thing when it's like, Oh, that one transaction, $6, this one transaction, 60,000. So yeah, one transaction is important. Fun question, Fun question. Move on to current favorites or not. So favorites. Yeah. Favorite. Not favorite.BethOh, not favorite. I don't have a not favorite this time. Last time I went on like some random like Brant. I don't know. Who knows. But this time I have this link shout out to my cousin who's the reason why I'm addicted to this, but I forget. Okay.AndrewOkay. Get ready to be present.BethHow do you pronounce it?AndrewFirst, Julie?BethI'm going to pronounce it wrong and everyone's going to make fun of me. But, like, forget it. Oh, like the.AndrewYeah. Shit. Yeah.BethOkay. Push it out. And then goat.AndrewCheese. I like goat.JulieCheese. That was my favorite.BethAnd then hot peach chutney.AndrewOkay, Some spicy, peachy stuff.BethSpicy and sweet. That's the beauty of it. And then you have the salty.AndrewAnd it this you just like random.BethI went on like a like a whole week where it was my lunch every single day. Every day I just made a plate and I would like, text a picture to Karla. I'd be like.AndrewI'm doing. Yeah, that sounds good. Does that sound good?BethSo try it, everybody. Costco sells goat cheese in, like a two pack. That's much cheaper than the grocery store. You're welcome.AndrewYeah. Forget the grocery store and you go through the goat cheese. Okay. We'll need a new recipe next week. Julie.JulieMy not favorite is the bad school germs, because I have something that my son had. And then now I have. And my favorite chick, a big shot of DayQuil before this podcast took NyQuil last night and they were laughing. You probably can't see on the camera, but I drink a Coke, which I'd never do, but it looks like red wine.JulieBut it's bad. It's not.AndrewIt's not.JulieAware. So that's what got me through this. This podcast is sponsored by.AndrewDayQuil and a.JulieLittle bit of caffeine.AndrewFinally. Well, my new favorite is, I think last time I talked about how this oh jeez, I'm getting wrapped up this boom, this make boom stand is terrible. It was on the floor next to me, blue, which is like a legit brand that's like a hundred bucks. Which, I mean.BethI thought it was a woman at first. I was like, What are you doing? Andrew?AndrewWhat happened to your legs? Yeah. So I'm like, Oh, let's go. Premium, right? Buy once, cry once, just get it over with is the best one and it usually works well, but If the humidity changes or stuff, then it starts to just my micro just be like falling down, falling down. So I'm like, I need to get one.AndrewThese cheap boom stands that you just really you have to lock in place. I haven't touched this really. I don't think since they put it in front of my face for the podcast, this was like a $20 knockoff one from China that someone bought 20,000 of brown container ship to the Amazon for from Amazon. They're making a bunch of money now and now this is great.AndrewIt's my new favorite. I don't even know what brand it is because there's like 30 of them that are exact same thing on Amazon. You just pick the one that's like then show up the next day. So that is exciting. So that's my favorite. My least favorite was I don't know what it is. We have three Starbucks. Oh jeez, Where I'm at, there's a Starbucks within 5 minutes, like every corner has a Starbucks where I'm at.AndrewSo from our house, there's three within 5 minutes. East, north, south, right there. Hurricane time comes. I'm like, Well, let's get our last Starbucks before everything shut down tomorrow. Like you just notice me shut down. All three of these places were closed. It was like seven in the morning. Hurricanes gets there, allegedly. That's when picks up at like 10:00 at night.AndrewIt's since COVID. It's so weird. At least down here. Maybe they're all like this. I have no idea. The ones down here, if they just decide to not be open or maybe like enough people don't make it on the shift or whatever, they just close up. No signs, nothing. They're still open on the app. So Starbucks.JulieYou're making me frustrated. Before the hurricane was like this one bad enough that some people left town.AndrewSo we didn't get the vibe. There really wasn't many who did evac our evacuations. If you're familiar. Like it's like mobile homes. Okay, Those are evacuated. Nursing homes are usually evacuated, depending where they are. And then like if you're on the beach because they close, the bridges are back evacuated. But like most people didn't board anything up there wasn't like it really was like, oh, it's here.AndrewBut like, it was pretty calm, like the vibe. If you go to the store, there's no water. But that's kind of like the usual thing. There's no water and like random stuff that just is gone. But it wasn't the same tense feeling like when we had Irma a while ago where we're like, Oh, this is serious and everyone's kind of sick, really freaking out.AndrewSo I want to. Duncan was open, Chick-Fil-A was open, McDonald's of every other place was open. But Starbucks, what's wrong with you? Oh, well. Well, that's it for this week. Thank you for listening.
