Por favor, mirad este coche… por delante, fijaos en la anchura del capó… por detrás, mirad como se estrecha… de perfil, una verdadera flecha… ningún GT iguala esa equilibrio entre confort, estabilidad y sensaciones que ofrece el SM… 53 años después… A mediados de los años 60 hacía tiempo que la guerra había acabado… pero no sus consecuencias. El General De Gaulle quería recuperar “La grandeza de Francia” pero en el terreno automovilístico las ingentes cantidades de dinero que Hitler había inyectado a las fábricas alemanas, curiosamente y gracias al tesón de los alemanes, se habían convertido en una ventaja en la post guerra. En 1968, Citroën seguía cosechando un éxito arrollador con el DS conocido en España con “Tiburón”. Pero quería más, quería convertirse en una marca Premium. Ahora os parecerá una locura, pero en su momento no era así, y Francia quería un “buque insignia” no solo para la marca, sino para la industria del motor francesa., Os recuerdo que el DS era el coche del presidente de la república, un coche con una imagen envidiable y muy superior a la competencia en muchos aspectos. Y, aprovechando ese éxito, Citroën quería competir con las Premium… ¿Qué le faltaba a Citroën para ser Premium? Pues dos cosas: Motores de más prestigio y lo que en marketing se llama un motor de imagen, por ejemplo, un buen Coupé o GT. Citroën tenía todos los mimbres para hacer un maravilloso cesto. Lo primero el bastidor del DS, pero muy mejorado en cuanto a hidráulica y con vías ensanchadas, sobre todo delante. Además, el sistema de alte presión central alimentada a los frenos, la dirección denominada DIRAVI ultra rápida con dos vueltas de tope a tope y los faros direccionales. Una dirección que permitía, por ejemplo, reventar un neumático y que el coche siguiese recto como una vela… esto sin electrónica y en los años 70. Tenía otros “AS”, a Robert Opron, que a lo mejor no es suena, pero ¿y si os digo que, además del SM, diseño el GS, el CX, el XM, el Alpine A310, el Renault Fuego y el Alfa SZ, entre otros? Y el último mimbre, el motor diseñado por Alfieri. Un raro V6 de 2,7 litros y 170 CV. He sido afortunado y he probado un SM. Conocía muy bien el coche… porque tenía uno, aunque fuese en escala 1/43. Pero me permitía ver una de las características singulares del SM: La diferencia de anchura de vías delante detrás. ¿Qué acabó con el SM? Unos dicen que la escasa fiabilidad, otros dicen que la crisis del petróleo… ¿Quién tiene razón? Pues ninguno. La culpa fue de Bosch y Peugeot. Os lo voy a demostrar. El SM anunciaba un consumo en torno a los 12 litros a los 100 km/h. pero en ciudad o en conducción deportiva, que en esos años se podía hacer y se podía decir, no era imposible llegar a los 20 litros a los 100 km. Eso no era grave antes del año 1973, pero a partir de ese año, con el precio de la gasolina disparado, era un problema. La fiabilidad no era ejemplar desde luego. Siempre se habla de los problemas de la suspensión de los faros orientables… hay gran parte de verdad en esto, pero ¿Qué hizo saltar la chispa? Y nunca mejor dicho. Pues algunas unidades que se incendiaron. Y es que a partir de 1972 se le instalo una inyección Bosch D-Jetronic cuya centralita iba en la guantera y que no ayudo, más bien lo contrario, a solucionar los problemas del motor. Pero a finales a mediados de los 70, Citroën tiene dificultades financieras: Una gama algo especial, con coche muy modestos o muy caros, sin nada en medio y su apuesta por el Wankel, pasan factura. En 1974 es comprada por PSA, o lo que es lo mismo, Peugeot Sociedad Anónima y en 1975 le compañía se desprende de Maserati y decide dejar de producir el SM. Solo se fabricaron 12.920 unidades. Hay multitud de versiones especiales… pero eso será objeto de otro vídeo. Este coche es aún hoy día, cuando lo ves, impresionante. Pero cuando lo pruebas lo es todavía más. Desde la dirección, suave en parado, dura a alta velocidad, sus asientos, verdaderos butacones, la suavidad no exente de firmeza de esa suspensión y la sensación de que no tiene límite en las curvas… todo eso es único. Por esto y por su escasez, hoy día es un coche muy cotizado…

INTRODUCTION: Master Joshua: Why I do what I do My whole purpose is to help people self-actualize. I've walked my own journey of identity for as long as I can remember. And in my life's journey, adversity, stress, anger and sadness all came in different forms. What I do with my work is take the experience of trying to find myself, my struggles with self-acceptance and help clear paths so that people can ask themselves these questions. We talk through it. I want people to find their authenticity in expression and existence, to be able to sit in their truth not just in BDSM, but in their entire life. I needed to accept myself around my struggles with resentment about the color of my skin and my stress around expression. What was it like to find peace within myself? What did it mean to work through my relationships and find peace, and to find peace spiritually and religiously? What would that be like for you? I teach folks to empower themselves. I provide one-on-one training, couples training, and group training.  For those folks who want to pursue the BDSM route of self-actualization through submission, to really experience those desires, I curate and guide them through an introspective journey. I provide guidance to people trying to discover themselves. These are the various options for the time I spend with people, for personal growth and spiritual development, through the lens of BDSM. I will empower you through experience and introspection. I will help you find the power of your voice. We will find a way to get your soul to the surface. We will remove blockages and build our own community. Let me help you. Healing through the lens of BDSM, the space we hold is sacred. The feelings and the emotions run deep. Upon reflection of the lives we live, we stand in a judgment-free zone in a space that is empowering in truth. That's what I get to create. That's what I create for you. My purpose in all of this has been to witness other people's experiences in life, to capture them in my memory and to use all this knowledge to help others find peace within themselves. With permission I photograph what I witness. I bring all of this experience to bear on how I help you, and in this way, you will contribute to help me to help others find themselves. Let's connect with all parts of yourself. Let's acknowledge the wide range of personality we all have. Karma Said:My (pen) name is Karma Said. I'm Master Joshua's sex slave, and a happily married (to another man) mother of two. I'm the author of "Surviving Master Joshua: The BDSM Memoir Of An Unfaithful Wife" (Carnal Culture, April 2022). When Joshua and I met, I was a staff reporter for a reputable conservative publication, and Joshua was research. But, following Him deeper and deeper into New York's sexual underground, I crossed the line between observer and participant, right and wrong. I started out in this lifestyle as a cheater... turning that around reshaped more than just our own lives.

And yes, we can put sex and drugs and Jesus all in the same bed and still be all right at the end of the day. My name is De'Vannon and I'll be interviewing guests from every corner of this world as we dig into topics that are too risqué for the morning show, as we strive to help you understand what's really going on in your life.There is nothing off the table and we've got a lot to talk about. So let's dive right into this episode.Joshua and his happily married to another man. Sex Slave Karma said are here to tell us their whole truth, and they're doing it with boldness and with zero shame. Y'all master Joshua is a professional dominant. , which is the male equivalent of a dominatrix, and also he's a non-traditional sexual behaviors consultant.Now, carer wrote a book called B D S M, memoir of an unfaithful Wife, and well [00:01:00] look, all I have to say is fucking wow.This conversation is deep and unadulterated in a way I've never done before.I mean, if you really wanna see something new, watch us on my YouTube channel because we take off our tops as I reveal to the world my special red and black harness for the first time. So if y'all wanna see these tits pop on over to the YouTube channel, baby.  Enjoy .Ooh, y'all. I've really, really, really, really, really been looking forward to this one here. Now, y'all all know me and my boyfriend have a, an open relationship, and we're new into the kingery and stuff like that. We're little baby virgins, and at least in that aspect all over again. But today I have with me on the sex drugs in Jesus podcast, a masterMaster Joshua: I'm blushing, [00:02:00]De'Vannon: a master. His name is Master Joshua. And Karma is it print property. Call you his slave, submissive, sex slave. Sex slave. And they have written a book called Surviving Master Joshua's, a memoir of an unfaithful Wife . And that's what we're gonna be talking about today. How are the two of you beautiful souls doing today?Master Joshua: Doing really well. Really excited to be on this morning. To, to talk about it. Being able to, to have Karma's story out there accessible is really exciting and important to me. Cuz she's worked really hard at it. She's dealt with me for four years to turn it out. . Karma: Yeah. It's a culmination of a big, big personal transformation and it's a, for me, it's a big personal victory to be able to talk about it cuz like the title says it's a V d s m memoir of an unfaithful wife.So that's where we start off from and it [00:03:00] ends with us being able to talk openly. And I still have my family so De'Vannon: You do. But it was, it was, it was a process and it's so interesting to see like how, you know, how you evolve in the story from. Somebody who's like, kind of timid about it all. It's by the end of the book.And you know, really the end of the book, you're like, you know, like, it's like there's like this cutting going on and stuff like that that we're gonna talk about, you know, later. And I guess it was fascinating to me that part three of this book is basically like one chapter. It's, it's like, it's like PO Box, I think it was like 1125 or, you know, something, something along those lines.And you know, the, you know, so that, that lets me know how important that that one section is. You know, that you separated it like that, you know, so, okay. I wanna get into y'all's very, very, very titillating like history [00:04:00] now. Now Master Joshua, I believe you've been doing this for at least like 20 years, I believe.No, I, Master Joshua: I I've been doing it professionally for about a decade. I actually have to sit down and do my timelines again cuz I've been saying a decade for a minute now. But I've been on my own personal journey. You know, there's levels to it cuz I can, I can remember a story I to I was told about when I was five and I would rub my aunt's nylons and they would, it would excite me as a five year old.Stimulating my body was a sexual in nature. No, it was all sensation and stimulation, right? I lost my virginity at 12. That's another major turning point in my life. I had my first child at 18, 19 having to deal with family court at 19. These are all different layers of my own identity and journey that, that all matter up until the point where I'm at today, you know, for all of us.But my purpose was [00:05:00] discovered about 10 years ago when I started doing this professionally. And by purpose, I mean people come to me for self-actualization and safety and submission. Being able to have someone hold space for them where they can be. Authentically themselves, you know, one piece at a time because you don't just jump out of the closet, right?It's like being deviant as some people call us, being perverted as some people call call us kinky fetishists. It's not easy because we're not the norm right now. The coolest part about it is that everybody wants something. It's just shame and fear and safety, right? People don't feel safe enough to be vulnerable, to be able to open those doors.My role is to be that safety for people to open the doors either in events that I produce or one-on-one sessions or intensives that we host. That's how I found power over sex addiction. And it was incredibly life changing to be able to [00:06:00] say no. Right? Just that simple word. No. And it really put the power back in my hand around who do I connect with and who do I not?De'Vannon: you say you've got the victory over sex addiction. At what point did you feel like you were a sex addict and why? Master Joshua: Oh, I mean, , I have four kids. I have four different w moms. I I would go outta my way in severe ways, detrimental ways to have sex. Right? It, it, I I had to, I was mandated to attend a program once, and while I was there, I was one of those guys sitting in the back like, why the fuck am I here?I'm not one of these guys. And, you know, for substance, I wasn't. Right. It was, it was a, an eye-opening experience though, cuz as I heard people's telling of the stories of their relationship with substances, that was my relationship with sex, the [00:07:00] things that they were ruining about their lives, the relationships that they were tanking financially, what they were doing, how irresponsible they were being.That was my relationship with sex. And that's how I know sex addiction is a thing. To get over it. It took a long time. I had a really intense relationship with sex. And I'm glad to be able to look back at it and say, this is what happened. And this is what was the turning point for me. De'Vannon: I was thinking about that earlier today about how addictions how we get carried away with desires.So be it drugs or the pursuit of money. People get addicted to their careers, people get addicted to their children, people get addicted to all sorts of things and but it's some sort of pleasure there that we tend to, to, to not be able to get enough of what I think that's [00:08:00] beautiful about what you're saying and a part of the reason why I.You know, take issue with a lot of like more anti elu addiction theories. Like, say the anonymous program says if you've been an addict, you can never stop being one. You can't ever do a drug again. So like, so somebody who's like an identified sex addict, you know, it's not gonna stop ever having sex.You're gonna find a way to get that shit together. Cause it is unrealistic to think just because you were once a sex addict, you're never gonna have sex again. You know? And I feel that. So I, I, I appreciate the fact that you've done that, and I commend you for that. But I feel like it's the same way with people who were once addicts and drug addicts.I don't feel like you always have to be one. I feel like you could learn girl, how to not do your crystal methyl cocaine every damn day, but just to deal with every now and then and still be fine. , Master Joshua: listen. No, listen. This is my theory around that. Right? If people were to handle their problem, They would be good.Right? But that's the hard part. This, the addiction is the easy way out of the problems. [00:09:00] The hard work is looking at the problems and it's okay that you resort to substance. It's okay that you fail sometimes. Just keep trying. Just get up and do the next right thing. It's, it's not easy, right? It sounds easy, but it's not.It's not. It's a simple solution. But by no stretch of the imagination, easy because it all starts with integrity. Right? And what we try to do, what I tried to do with this relationship and we'll, and we'll get into it, is I try to circumvent morals with ethics. Right? And you can't circumvent morals, right?Ethics are manmade rules around human relations and what it is to do good morals are like universal law, right? And the basis of this book is built off of our developed relationship connection into a deep relationship where. I have the perspective of I only need her permission. I only need her consent.Right. Ethically, morally, that's not the truth. [00:10:00] The truth is I needed to know all the ducks were in a row before opening that door, but I, I got selfish in it too because she provided me a safe space. And we'll get, we'll get into that cuz it's, we're human beings, right? And we make choices that aren't always the right thing.Well, sometimes they're the right thing for us, but they're not the right thing. De'Vannon: Well, we can talk about it now. It sounds like what you're referring to is that, that part of the book that I was reading where like karma, like maybe your husband gave you certain permissions, maybe you had, I think it read like you, you had loopholes and you used them, you know, quite severely.Is that what you're referencing right now? Having the liberty and taking it a bit too far? Karma: Well I'm glad the book leaves leaves that space where it's not quite clear where the fault is but as in the way I see it there, [00:11:00] the loopholes were big as in really ill-defined, and it was, it's, it's a fig leaf really, that my husband and I negotiated certain terms of, and it wasn't really a negotiation.We agreed on certain terms in which we can in which I could explore the topic of V D S M because I was interested in it, but he wasn't right. We should tell the people, , we should give them a little bit of background. Right. I went in as a reporter reporting on a story about religion in kink. Joshua and his partner, master Joshua and his partner were the people who let me in.I was writing about an event that took place in their venue. Once I went to that event and spoke to the people and witnessed what happened, it became clear to me that my interest goes beyond the professional in B D [00:12:00] S M. And shortly after it became clear to me that my interest in Joshua goes beyond the professional as well, but we were kind of entangled.It wasn't, the boundaries were very blurry. Is it personal? Is it professional? Is it about being a journalist? Is it about my interest in B D S M? Is it about my interest in him? It was all kind of like mixed in. And of course, I'm married in a traditional marriage plus kids, and I don't wanna risk that.So I am trying on, on the other front, on my husband's front to to be in a space where I'm not actually cheating. And, and it's kind of like okay, I am doing th so. I keep reaching agreements with him, and the agreements keep falling short of reality because in reality, I'm already in love with him.I fell in love with him very early on. So what was [00:13:00] happening was that it just wasn't an honest,it's very hard to be honest when you don't know what's happening and when you are in a vortex, right? But that vortex created a situation where I really wanted something and that something was not allowed within the framework of a traditional marriage. And I kept tweaking the framework, but not being honest about my intentions or about what I really want, because at the time I didn't know.I just, I was exploring, discovering, and I got that permission to explore and discover. But within, you know, nothing more than a kiss and. Less than a kiss with another man. And that kind of was hard to keep , right? De'Vannon: So, Master Joshua: so, so you don't, can I, can I throw in my half of [00:14:00] that e of the equation , right? No, because it's, it's like, it's, it's tough.I was going through when she met me, I was going through a breakup. It was at a dissolution of a dynamic, right? They're not really the same dynamics are power exchange relationships, where this case was a baby girl in the daddy dom this is master slave. There's dom sub, there's all types of power exchange relationships where the focal point is the energy, the power exchange differential.So I was going through a breakup, and this was around the Me Too movement when I first started. Now, the Me Too movement was very necessary, and the bad actors, everyone got called out. and over time we went from bad actors to bad people to bad relationships. And it got weaponized At a point I was subjected to a weaponized me to dissolution and [00:15:00] she came into the class that we were teaching the round table discussion around B D S M and religion, which believe it or not is, is they're, they're two peas of the same two peas in a pod.So dealing with that while still hosting events, while still trying to provide service to the community. Cuz when you're accused of something like that, no one wants to hear it from you. Right. Everyone. And I understand the believe the victim approach. I too, when as event as an event producer, I have to hold space for the victim.Right. And I believe what you're saying, what I am also responsible, especially in this lifestyle, which is heavily defined by integrity, is I have to ask the other party what happened. I have to because I need to hear the whole story to find out what's going on. Because it's our responsibility if we're gonna keep the community safe from all types of situations, right?We can't just pick and choose. Leadership [00:16:00] requires doing the hard work. So I had no platform still doing what I do because this is what I do. This is my, I found purpose in my journey through B D S M and holding space for folks to find safety and self-expression and to, to dive into their sexuality is important for me because there's liberty in that I was shut down and Karma was interested and curious about the lifestyle.So I gave her space and I gave her all my information, everything I could provide her information with, I would. And then she caught wind of the accusations. You wanna take it from there, ? Karma: Well you read the book so you know, , but what happened was I started exploring this world through Master Joshua, right.Attending a little bit more events being a little bit more involved on a personal level and getting a taste [00:17:00] which really kind of threw me off personally. It was such a shocking discovery. It, it really impacted me to, I, I read about it in fiction books, so I kind of assumed that this whole lifestyle was fiction, , cuz I never saw it in real life until I met him.And then the whole discovery of it was kind of like, it, it was just walking headlong into a train for me. And then, so I'm trusting him as a guide during this period, which is very brief. Just a matter of days or weeks. and very soon I come across one of the people I interviewed about the King and religion story told me, well it's a more interesting story to examine the impact of me too on the king scene.Take the accusation against Mr. J Master Joshua, for example. I'm like, whoa, whoa, hang on. What accusations against Master Joshua? And so he [00:18:00] sent me the link to the accusations which were on Fe Life, which is kind of like the Facebook Forsters mm-hmm. . And I began following up on them and my first step was to confront Joshua about them and then interview him and his then partner about them and.You read the book. So, you know, as I went along, I let go of that story first because he and his partner were not interested in the Me Too story coming out at that time because of, they've already been through a lot with it. They were tired, his partners specifically. But I let go of it because I couldn't find enough concrete evidence that would meet my that part is not in the book.So I'm telling you there are certain standards for my publication to run with a story that is, that involves a [00:19:00] me too story. You need a certain amount of sources. They need to be verifiable to a certain extent, and their, their testimony needs to be. About some concrete me, some concrete things. Now there's a lot of noise about a me too movement in the kink scene, but once you look at the complaints, the noise, the story changes because it's sort of like the story becomes not oh, they are bad people out there using kink as a, as a way to abuse people's consent.But the story becomes, there's a lot of confusion there about what consent means and how do you verify it, and when is somebody doing something wrong and when are they not? Because there were no clear parameters. So everybody who yelled abuser just, you know, okay, that person became an abuser and that's it.And there was no [00:20:00] recourse for them. That, that became my story. In the end. My, the story I wanted to write as a journalist, but I could not run with it as a journalist because I would be standing on the right, wrong side of history as a liberal and as a woman and as like nobody would publish it. And if they did publish it, I would get into a lot of backlash.So I ended up publishing that. It's not even a story because it, I ended up publishing that outlook in my book because as I was, it's not just my story, right? It's a part of history. It's a part of a movement in history and it's a part of history that impacted people I love very much. So I really wanted to do something with it as a journalist, and I couldn't, so I did something with it as an author.De'Vannon: You can't speak one way, you gotta find another way. I appreciate your thoroughness and, and I agree. You know, nothing [00:21:00] in this life you know, is really ever a hundred percent, you know, and it's somebody who has stood in front of a judge several times. I got like four felonies, you know I, I appreciate thorough research rather than jumping like to conclusions and things like that.So there's like literally no way every man who's ever been accused of abuse has done it. It's not possible. There has to be somebody lying somewhere, you know, or, and taking advantage of that movement. So Master Joshua: you know, one of, one of the, one of the great things about our relationship is the accountability that she holds me to.Right? And I've grown a lot and I've reflected a lot around my life, and I've, I've even come to admit the points. Where I was a horrible partner within those relationships. Not to the degrees that they made the accusations, but enough to know that I had a role in the love going from love to hate, right?So it's, and that's what these relationships bring out, [00:22:00] is she's held my feet to the fire because I have a role that I play. And it's like, if I'm falling short, she, she's gonna make sure that I'm aware of it. Karma: I'm gonna quote him on that when it comes my time to make sure that you're aware of it. , it's not easy.De'Vannon: Love it. It's beautiful. So I wanted to read a snippet from the book. Thank you. I may because it's, they're very fun. I actually have a lot of quotes that I pulled from there that I thought were just like, so fun. So y'all, karma had mentioned earlier, like she was a reporter and everything like that.Well, she had reached out to a friend Bec wanted to do this b s m religion story, like what she said. And and the response that Karma got from her friend included this here. She said and I quote she quickly lay out a feast for me heavy on the red meat. Seeks, seeks in diapers, clergy, men and kennels.Yeah, I'm thinking like dog kennels ca seeds, ca seeds [00:23:00] getting fucked up the ass with bottles of kosher wine in quote. I thought that You know, I'm thinking, why can't the Catholic church just admit that they do the same shit and be done with it?Master Joshua: No, I have a, I have a client who's been a priest for 40 years. Right. And it's like legit. It's everywhere. Everybody's got something. Everybody's got something. De'Vannon: And then another part. How Karma was saying she was timid and shy. You know, it's like the, the roles were, were flipped. You know, all the times you hear about the guy sneaking around with his porn and everything like that.In this case you were that person s smut, as you called it. You had these dirty little habits and stuff like that, and you were hiding him from your husband. And I thought, well, what a role reversal. And and speaking of fe life, you understood that you had to establish a profile to, you know, as you, if you're gonna be going down this road, and I'm gonna read how you felt about it at [00:24:00] first, so quote you said, but scrolling through the avatars on the list of attendees, an unsavory collage of inch by inch asses, tits, cunts, cocks, and combinations thereof, unease swept over me in quote.I thought that was so beautifully written. . , thank Master Joshua: you. Karma: Thank you. Master Joshua: I De'Vannon: appreciate that and it's very, very powerful that you, that we're so transparent about going from like being uneasy about it to all immersed in it. And a big thing about, even as I, myself and my partner trying to approach, you know, the B D S M community, I think it's super important to to ease into it.You know? Cause in the book you talk about how it's very complex, there's a lot of layers to it. You started off as an observer, then you transitioned, you know, into participating, you know, as you got comfortable with it. And I think that that's an important thing to point out. So Master Joshua, you're technically speaking [00:25:00] professional, dominant.And then a non-traditional sexual behaviors consultant are the two titles I found when I was Master Joshua: researching. Yeah. Yeah. So essentially I do professional domination and N T S B counseling is B D S M without B D S M, right? Non-traditional sexual behavior. It's for those who are afraid to call it B D S M, but they're into something that isn't so intense, right?It all falls into the big umbrella that B D S M is, right? Fetish and kink. The desire for something we're afraid to speak of, right? So I make myself accessible. I make this journey accessible in both perspectives, right? For someone who isn't ready to say that they're that far into it in B D S M or leather or kink, we can call it non-traditional sexual behavior.Hey, it is what it De'Vannon: is. now. Yeah. Now I'm gonna read a portion of. [00:26:00] Of of, of, from my research of, of you master Joshua. This is not specifically from the book, so, but that you stated that when you first started, you say, when I first started practicing B D S M and Earnest, I assumed that what interested me in kink was, well, the kink, you say the thrill, the rush I got from dominating other person made the Y seem pretty self-explanatory.You go on to say, I used to play a lot of play at a lot of parties in the beginning before Scene, my bottom and I would talk, these talks were often uniquely candid. We were heading into a heightened situation and people wanted to let go of their masks, show me what was really going on inside. And you go on to say that by the end of.It was people's trust, you desire their permission to connect on a deeper, truer level. Kink was just the way in. Now, I've never heard B D S M describe like that before because when it's presented, a lot of times all we see is the [00:27:00] kink. Speak to me about how it's not really about the kink so much. Master Joshua: So this, and this is gonna go back to my relationship with sex.I enjoy kink, I enjoy the intensity, the director energy of it, being able to, and because domination looks at 20 different ways, right? The way I enjoy it is like Rocco sire, if you watch porn, , right? I really enjoy being a monster sexually. I also bought 'em, right? I'm also a sex submissive too, right?I enjoy intense things. I enjoy being fisted, right? I enjoy licking shoes, so it's a very visceral. Raw primal energy exchange for me. Now in order to access that, and this is where the title Sex Slave comes in what Karma's given me is freedom to be who I want to be within the four walls of our intimacy.[00:28:00] And that looks whichever way I want it to block because she's given me the permission by calling me master and me calling her my slave. There's a freedom, there's a weightlessness of being able to express yourself sexually, that you can't compare it to anything else. So knowing that that's earned through trust, right?That the, when I connect with people, I have a level of, of emotion and safety I want to feel. And if you don't hit that bar, we're probably not gonna be hanging out. And all that's earned through trust. And that's, that's how I want to live my life, is surrounded by people who I can not have to wear as many masks as, as we often have to.Hmm. And then, I mean, once you have that freedom, that permission, dude, you can do whatever you want, man. Let's go. Let's play, let's be nasty. Let's do what you want. I'm [00:29:00] game. Right, because there's no judgment. I love how it's beautiful. De'Vannon: I love how relationship based it is. I do. Because you know when a lot of people think about sex, you know, so, so many times, you know, our mind defaults to like maybe apps or like quick hookups and things like that.And it seems like the way that this is set up is getting away from like more superficial connections.Do you feel like, you know, this community provide. As we might say, chosen family. You know, maybe somebody's been rejected by their biological family. Can people find their way into the B D S M community and find the new community that accepts them or others have rejected them? Master Joshua: I think that's a false hope.I think what people find in community is validation and affirmation that you're not alone. What I don't find in community more often than that is growth [00:30:00] beyond the validation, right? Once you hit that bar of what community is, and that's set by the lowest common denominator. Now I say that because I put a lot of time into community and there's not a lot of return that community gives back because a lot of people in community are there to take their validation and affirmation and experiences and not really contribute.So that's a lot of energy being put out. This comes to connection right now through the years of doing professional domination. I've spoken to and hosting events. I've spoken to thousands of people. I've done thousands of sessions. I've played thousands of times. I actually complained about my joints now because my shit's hurt, man, , like my arthritis is kicking.I got tennis elbow and stuff, and people laugh, but that shit for real, right? Because I can't do it forever. What I learned in that time is how to connect with people, how to hear what people are saying, and keeping my mouth shut and processing. Right now, while we're all different, we're all very much the [00:31:00] same, right?We fall into like six categories of people and we just have variables to each of us. What we're all looking for is connection and validation, right? Being seen and being heard. What we need, if we're going to find that piece, is to be put into positions where we're questioned about our beliefs. We're questioned about our journey and our directions, and that requires growth because you gotta be put in uncomfortable situations.That's the type of community I'm trying to build, where we. Know who we are. We know who we are not. Right? We we're trying to unlearn what society's taught us and we're trying to dig into finding out who we are because no one taught us how to do any of this stuff. No one taught us how to have relationships.No one taught us how to have sex. No one taught, taught us how to communicate , right? It's simple. Communication is all boils down to communication. All I do is hold space for people and ask questions that have you reflect. And cuz you [00:32:00] know all the answers, I'm not, no one can teach you anything. All we can teach you, all we can help you do is ask you the questions that you can answer for yourself, right?And transitioning from B D S M as a community, more towards human responsibility, right? As a community is where we're going. And I've learned all of that through my own journey, through my relationships, through our relationships. Of the importance of integrity and trying to be as judgment free as possible.Trying to always do, try, remember, try cuz we're not superhuman. Trying to always just do the next right thing. Because if you do that in your relationships, you'll see all of this is a achievable. You can achieve anything if you're open and honest. Cuz what you're doing there is you're, you're gauging your safety.You're ga gauging if you're being seen and heard. [00:33:00] And if you don't have that, why would you put your guard down? Right? So you gotta really reevaluate these things. I hope I didn't go off too far off topic, and how, De'Vannon: I mean, know how intelligent is all smart. It's like mindful, mindful sexual behaviors rather than just reacting to the fact that you're horny.You know, I think it's a smart way to do, you know, who is this person and do we have a connection? I think it's brilliant. I think it's bloody brilliant. Master Joshua: You can also do it on, on like a, a hookup, right? Because I, I've taught a few classes at Claw. Claw is Cleveland Leather Annual Weekend. They teach it, it's, it's held in Cleveland every April.And it's the, in my opinion, the best large format education convention out there, especially for men particularly gay men interested in leather culture. And I've taught about hookup culture and how it deteriorates our connection, right? Because it's more like playing jackpots. You, you, every time you hit that hookup, you get [00:34:00] that rush of endorphins and Oh my God, you're gonna go hookup and then you're gone and you're depleted again and it's empty.So you go back on there and you're trying to hit that hook up again. And it's, it's a cycle, right? And all you have to do is, it's not really all you have to do, cuz it's not, it's, it's work. It, it takes pr, it takes work is you have to. Be okay with not being who you want thought you were and doing some, find a mentor, find someone who's at where you want to be, and develop a, a friendship.Friendship, meaning have conversation without intention. Right? Meet people without thinking, what can I get from them? And just hold space. Hold space. Ah, holding space, meaning giving undivided attention and not judging. When you do that, and this can be with anyone, [00:35:00] right? If you do that without the intention, you'll hear yourself reflected back in many different ways, in ways beyond you can even comprehend.Now, imagine doing that in an arena where you are looking to meet someone because you have similar. Interest. Right? It doesn't just have to be at a bar or a club, but let's say you're into pottery, right? Or you're doing some Groupon Eatery event, or you go do movie, movie screenings, right? And you sit and you just have conversations about things that interest you hold space and listen for people, and you'll see how easy it is to hear yourself in things that matter from the other person.Not about sports, not about the movies, and not about TV shows, but about shit that matters, right? You open those doors and while they're scary, you'll see how much return you get back on that stuff. Mm-hmm. , you better De'Vannon: preach. And, and, and by the way, I wanna say I love the nails. You talk with your hands a lot, so I [00:36:00] think it's beautiful that you have those all dead up.So you mentioned earlier that you feel like B D S M and religion are two peas in the same pod. Break that down for me please. Master Joshua: So I define spirituality as how I treat myself through my belief system. My belief system is karma, right? I, what I put out is what I get back, meaning I drink alcohol. I know I shouldn't because it's bad for my body, right?The right thing to do is to not drink alcohol, right? I smoke marijuana. It has medicinal purposes, but it still puts tar in the lungs. I know that, right? Who am I kidding? It's not the right thing to do unless there's di cer certain circumstances, but I do it recreationally, right? There's lack of integrity in how I'm treating my body, and I'm aware of it, right?That spirituality, how I treat myself under my belief system. Religion, as I define it, is how I treat others through my belief system right now, karma, right? If I treat you like an asshole, you'll probably treat me like [00:37:00] an asshole back, right? If I do something nice for you, maybe you'll do ni something nice for me.Without in expectations, right? Intentions without expectations. Now, B D S M, and at this point, all the reli, reli, all the relationships I develop are built off of my belief system that B D S M works as a way to build deep and meaningful relationships, open and honest communication, transparency, integrity, doing the hard stuff that isn't fun, right?Having the hard conversations that aren't fun. That's my belief system. If I approach this with integrity, it's going to come back with integrity. And if I don't feel it, it's not meant to be, but we're not dealing with that level of integrity at this point, that petty shit, right? But you have to unlearn a lot of that stuff because what does it mean to feel safe, right?So how I associate the two is [00:38:00] people choose what religion they put in there. Ju Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Catholicism. Right? That's your belief system. Now the difference between talking, the talking, walking the walk is another big thing, right? Because you can say you're of any of these religions, I can say I practice B D S M, but it doesn't mean I practice that shit safely or correctly.Right? Who's not saying, I'm not using my knowledge to manipulate the situations. Wow. That kind of sounds like religion. , right? because that's it. It's all about human relations. That's all life is about, is human connections. Hmm. What did that was the first time I said that shit like that. Wow. I gotta have to play that shit back.Hopefully De'Vannon: you're on the podcast . What a deep thinker you are. Master Joshua. Yeah. Things come out of us when we need it to. Master Joshua: I found my connection to God through this journey. I mean, it's faith, right? The faith that if I continue doing the right thing, it'll come [00:39:00] back. Mm-hmm. the faith of. . When I need something, it'll be provided.This, the faith of, they won't disappoint me because I won't disappoint them. Right. It's like we've invested a lot of time and energy into building this. And it's not a house of cards. This shit's built out of steel and brick . Oh, that's right. I'm all hyped up, man. Karma: Finally, somebody wants to hear about religion.Master Joshua: It's crazy cuz I, I would've never seen myself here. I'm one of those guys. I was, I'm Latino, right? I grew up in New York, east Harlem. I pushed religion aside at an early age because you couldn't prove it to me. You can't prove it to me. What, how, what are you gonna prove to me? Nothing. What I learned it through was consistency in the return of doing the right thing and that that.Now, I've touched the iron many times, , right? But the point is, am I changing my behavior after I touched the iron, right? We can't just repent on Sunday and say we're all [00:40:00] forgiven. That shit doesn't work like that. We're just, that's a joke, right? Can I give you one philosophy? One theory. One theory. Just one theory.East Easter Sunday, I was coming out of the train and this guy goes, Jesus died for your sins. I'm like, Jesus did not die for my sins. I don't know Jesus. Jesus doesn't know me when they say he died for your sins. I said, maybe. Maybe he died for the sins of inaction, right? Of all the people that watched him, he get crucified for doing the right thing and they fell to do the right thing and that's why he died for their sins of inaction.So maybe the lesson to take away from that shit is if you see something wrong, do the right thing. Karma: Theta says it all the time. , you see something, say something. Master Joshua: Okay. Ah, sorry. I'm gonna drink my water now. . De'Vannon: No, you are so good, man. Like I love, I love me a good deep thinker, you know? And wouldn't I agree with everything that someone is saying?What I, what I always agree with is the passion and the conviction, [00:41:00] you know, behind it. And I can tell you believe every word that's coming outta your mouth. And I know that that translates to your, to your submissive and your slaves and everything like that, you know, confidence. That's something I love in a man.You know, it'll make you follow 'em to the end of the earth. Oh yeah. . Karma: Yeah, Uhhuh. You get it. You know how it works. De'Vannon: You know, so Carmen, so, so something that I read that you wrote in, in one of your profiles, probably on matchmaker, maybe on one of the websites, was that this lifestyle, referring to bds, the B D S M lifestyle is one of the most sensationalized and least understood factions of the L G B T Q I two s plus community.Right. I wanted to dwell on this for a moment, because I know when a lot of people think bd s m, they don't necessarily place that in the plus of the L G BT Qia A so, and I don't, to my knowledge, I mean, [00:42:00] are most people who practice BD s m in our community, is it sometimes separate? Is it always together?Help me understand. Karma: I'm gonna give you my, this is master Joshua's question, but that's his answer. No, no, go ahead. But I'm gonna give you my outlook. P D S M was something I was interested in, but once I began exploring it and living it as some, as, as a submissive, as a slave, it's not a, well, I, this is just how I enjoy fucking, it's not just, this is, it's an inherent part.It's, it's a identity, it's a sexual identity, and it's a personal identity, and it's a setup of how I would like to interact with people on, it has parts of it that are integral to who I am. [00:43:00] It should not be viewed as a I say it's as much of a, an identity as transgender. Transgender is, or gay is, or lesbian ins.It is not a game. It's a peoplehood in a way. . And for me, and, and it, it has very concrete aspects, right? Because for example, if I try to to advertise my book on Amazon so people could see it, so it would get some, you know, just because I exist and I want people to know about the book I wrote obviously.So if I wanna advertise on Amazon, I can't because the word B D S M is not they do not advertise anything that has B D S M in the title because B D S M is a perversion, a sexual thing, [00:44:00] a and they don't run with that, right? But transgender is okay, you transgender has its own category and is promoted as such.And in a way it comes to, I have a truth about myself that I cannot speak. Because V D S M is not acceptable as other sexual identities are. Right? I can't, I can't be who I am openly. I have to, I can't talk about this almost anywhere, right? I am, I'm poly, right? I, I have a husband and a master and I can't talk about that anywhere.And I am kinky, right? I, I, I like sex to involve certain things that other people do not like. And I can't talk about that. And both of these things are huge parts of who I am and what I do with my life, but I don't have any permission to approach it as such. However, there is a [00:45:00] community, and there is, and there are people who do this as, as a lifestyle and as an expression of self, an expression of identity.So in my eyes, it is just a matter of time until B D S M or the leather community or however it ends up calling itself or unifying itself, will become part of that umbrella of the L G B T Q A and it will be the plus, right? It's it somewhere in that plus is our place in humanity. And that's why I identified the book as such, because it really is, if you look at the larger picture of things at history, at what's happening, that's the purpose of my book, to show people that this is, this is an identity and a legit one, and it belongs into a group of people and this is the group it belongs to.De'Vannon: Yeah. That and [00:46:00] master Joshua, was there anything you wanted to add to that? Master Joshua: Yeah, because , I, I have the like the technical stuff, so while. And it's evolved a lot over the last X amount of years. It's, it was hugely segregated between gay pansexual and pansexual is more heteronormative and the queer community you had smaller subsets within those, with the times everyone's evolved.Mostly everyone's evolved to where everyone's promoting inclusivity, but the vibe still changes with every event that you go to. The, what we're trying to do within that event space and what people come to us for is a level of equality where people are just, again, people are just people. We have the, the name of the intensive that we host [00:47:00] is called People Before Kink. And it's like, it's all about getting to know the person next to you because I.I have a personal agenda around B D S M and getting it to fall under the Civil rights protection. Right. To be identified as an identity because I, we're not, we're born this way. Right? We have these desires, these relationship developments. Like I identify as a leather sexual because I need to get to know you and once I get to know you, I'll determine if I like you or not.It has nothing to do with what's between your legs. Nothing to do with what's between your legs. Nothing to do with how you identify. I don't care. Anything else other than are you a good person? And if I can vibe with you, I probably wanna fuck . Right? But it's like, don't put on a mask. Don't lie to me.Right. I [00:48:00] have no agenda with I I have, I, I just wanna, I just wanna witness your existence. Tell me about yourself. And just on that alone will tell me which way we're gonna go. Right. And I, I found that shit out in 2019 at, at Palm Springs pride March. I was standing in the back of the chute. Did I tell you this story?Mm-hmm. and everyone's waving their flags. And I'm tight, right? Because my relationship with my orientation has always been up in the air. I, like, I've, I, I don't identify as straight, I don't identify as gay. I, I'm, I fell somewhere in bi pansexual, like, eh, but it always fell short and everyone's waving their flags and I'm like, but does the genitalia really fucking determine, does this really determine like, what determines for me?And I said, well, I've been doing this process for years now and this is what matters to me, determines whether I wanna hook up with you or not. Cuz I've met enough people where they, once they opened their mouth, I was like, that's a done deal. I just spent all this time meeting them, talking to them, and then I've then fucking [00:49:00] box of rocks.Like I have no interest in them. . So I changed the way I approach to this lifestyle, and this is how we develop relationships. Once you have the taste for being seen and heard, you are not gonna settle for nothing else. If, if you do your sac, your sacra, if you're doing yourself, you're doing yourself harm.Right? By not doing what it, just being seen and heard, right. And learning the value of the roles that we play. So it's like,I believe it's that ingrained into us. It's about once you, we realize that it's about the connection we're making, that is our lifestyle.De'Vannon: I look forward to your book coming out. Master JoshuaMaster Joshua: Yeah, no, we're I'm working on it cuz. Something that just came to mind. I was visiting a, a [00:50:00] mistress friend of mine out in Pennsylvania and she's been doing it as long as I have and it was such an amazing connection to meet someone who is on the same page of, cuz once you've been doing this shit for so long, you've been wearing your mask for too long, your teacher hat.And we've gotten to the point where we've taken it off and it's like, we need to continue our own personal journeys. Dom domination aside, what does that mean? Now we got to share that space and vulnerability with each other was incredible. We also got to share perspectives of what are we doing with this knowledge And what I'm walking away, what I walked away with is creating a power exchange economy where just like our people before kink intensives and our other personal development intensives the idea behind.And all of it is how do we help you find your version of what you're looking for? How do we help you tap into your dominance? How do we help you tap into your submission and what does it look like and what does [00:51:00] structure look like? And all that's gonna be built and taught off of philosophy, safety, and techniques.Right now the book is gonna come out based off of that too, cuz there's a lot to say about this. That I believe bd, s m could be a form of therapy now, not only therapeutic as in the spanking and the relief that a person can get, but therapy with the understanding that the professional dominant understands the responsibility of the space that you hold.The person is coming into you, you're giving them, again, the undivided attention and you're judgment free and you're reflecting back to them that they're okay and that they're not broken. We also have the ability to connect with them on the, on the level of giving our own examples and life experiences that a lot of mental health professionals can't.They have to keep that wall up. So imagine you're sitting with someone who you just told you deepest, darkest secrets and they didn't even bat an eye. And then they said, you know what? I understand. I had an experience like that one time with broom. And then they just lay it out and you're like, holy fuck, I'm [00:52:00] not broken.I'm not wrong. What they've told me for the last 20 years was a lie. , right? Now that I'm talking about that level of therapy and healing, and then you walk into the therapeutic stuff. But we as the professionals have to understand the role that we play in all of it. You can't just say, listen, this is what I'm doing.And the only way you can do that is by doing the fucking work yourself. You have to go and you have to walk and you have to open the closets and you have to look in and you have to cry, and you have to have imposter syndrome e every other month, right? You gotta do all the ugly shit so that you can say the P, the point of suffering is on the other side of all that suffering.You can say, you know what? I see you coming. Keep coming because you can survive. I did it. Just keep going. Right? You can provide that space. Dude, that's all we're doing. That's all we're doing. So that's why I think it's a form of therapy. Well, De'Vannon: after that af after that sermon right there, I think it's about time [00:53:00] I take off my top for you,Master Joshua: I like it. I like it. So now we're all at home. Can I, can I turn on, can I, can I take off my shirt? Whatever it is you wanna do. . De'Vannon: So, sorry, I'm keeping in Karma: mind . De'Vannon: So this is the introductory piece of leather, one of the two, me and my boyfriend got when we started to experiment. And so I wanted to read a couple of chapter titles during this part cause I thought that they were so fun.And you have masochism, knives, rope negotiation, the dungeon , you know, that was my Karma: life at the time. That is my life. That is my life at the time now.De'Vannon: And so I wanted to just read a few definitions. So we were talking, you were talking about how like your bottom and everything like that, and I love your [00:54:00] tattoos and the harness and everything. All very thoughtful and thought out. It was very intriguing to me to find some of the you know, like top and bottom and everything like that, those terms, you know, in the B D S M community.Look, as far as I'm concerned, everyone's welcome. B D S M. Come on and play with us too. You know, as you mentioned in the book, you know, karma, you mentioned, you know, it was like, it's like coming out of the closet, you know, even, you know, like for you and I'm, and I was like, okay. You know, I don't know that I've ever, you know, con stepped to that deep into the BDSM world to realize that people who really like, you know, that sort of lifestyle have have all these barriers too and all this judgment and so, As far as I'm concerned, come on and play with us.I'm so happy that you go to Pride, you know, master Joshua and everything like that. I think it's so inclusive and I, I feel like, like your book, karma is really, really, you know, for people who are in that situation where you were, you know, in a relationship feeling like [00:55:00] something's missing. They don't know what in, you know, how the hell were you gonna tell your husband?And we're gonna talk about that after I go over these Definition, Sarah. So I just wanna read them. So top you say in the context of B D S M A top is a term given to the individual who assumes the controlling or dominant role over a submissive participant or bottom. I get the sense that it doesn't matter if it's male, female, other, it is just like whoever.And I think that that's more comprehensive than how it is. You know, like in the gay community, seeing the definition of seeing is A B D S M scene is a pre-planned space where BD B D S M activities take place. It is als it al it, it, it also includes the participation of B D S M related activities like we were saying earlier.There's a lot of work and planning that goes into this sort of thing. Now, what interested me the most, so, and what I want y'all to talk about is the after. Now, this is particularly interesting to me. It says in B D [00:56:00] S M aftercare is the period of time after a scene in which partners attend to one another's physical, emotional, and psychological needs.Typically, the dominant partner in the scene will be the one caring for the submissive partner or partners. B D S M scenes are often very intense and can often be emotionally and psychologically draining. Physical injuries are also not uncommon during these scenes. Tell me about this aftercare and why it's needed, honey.Karma: Well, first we should source them. This came from kingley.com. The definitions are from kingley.com. And I was learning them as I was going. So for me, how. There was a discussion, how should I put them as, should it be in glossary? Should it be at the end of the book? But I put them as I learned them, right?I would go after, each time I met Joshua, I'm online. I'm doing my research. I'm like, what the fuck happened to me right now? Let me see. And, and that's [00:57:00] and that's how all these things were, were pulled. Now of course he is the professionals, so he is the one who should be talking about what these things are and how you properly employ them.But in the place, in the book that you came about, the place where aftercare was mentioned, it was in the context of a party, right? Master Joshua was playing with another man. And, and it was a very intense scene. It involved breath play. and the person at the other end of it, he was, he was barely standing when we were done.He was not standing when we were done. He was, he was. When they were done master Joshua took him off the restraints and the person just kind of collapsed in, into his arms. And it master Joshua you don't see it here, but he has a pretty smallish frame. And the person [00:58:00] was much bigger than him. And when that person fell into his arms, they both had to sit down cuz master cuz he couldn't hold him.And what happened was he kind of master Joshua, kind of propped him up in his arms and, and put his held his head in his lap and kind of just caressed his head for, and just held his hands and caressed him. And it looked very, it was very tender and very peaceful and not at all something that I.Ever thought of in the context of bdsm. And I think that while the whole party, you know, the whole thing was exciting and mesmerizing, I think that was the moment where I kind of like fell in love both with the lifestyle and probably was Joshua because it was so just tender and, and naked. Like the, it's, it, it had a, a, a gravity [00:59:00] to it of like holding a baby or, or a tenderness, just there was so much warmth and, and empathy in it that it felt like the height of, of, of what a human relationship could be.Right. And there was, so, there was such a sweetness to it, right? The, the other person has surrendered, the conqueror has taken what he, it wasn't clear who was taken and who was given anymore, but there was just a, a comfort there. He was comforting him. . And I was like, how does that work? That person just beat the other person till he was senseless and now he's, he's holding him and he's comforting him.Like, like that big man is, is like a child, like a baby. And it was incredibly sweet. And later I researched it and came up with, what is that? Why, why did that happen? What, what is that about? And so I came across aftercare and I'm like, oh, there's a term for it. Okay, great. And that's the term [01:00:00] I included in my book, but really it's seeing it and, and that that's what got me hooked.I would say more than, more than all the rest because it's so De'Vannon: beautiful. Interesting. So since we're wearing these harnesses, what is it, you know, how, how, how are these used? In the, you know, in, in the community and, you know, why is the leather such a draw? But I see these harnesses everywhere in all the gay bars, you know, everywhere I go.What's the big deal with the harnesses? People want to know. Master Joshua: I think, I think now it's just a symbol, right? I, I think, I think it's a fashion statement is mainstream, which is cool. I'm thankful for it because it allows it to be more okay to go out in public like it granted I have a lot more leather than, than, than a piece or two, but being able to normalize bd, s m like 50 shades good, bad or, or different?It, it put B D S M [01:01:00] into the spotlight. Yes. As time has progressed, and we have other artists who have come forward with harnesses and other le leather outfits. I mean, there's designers out there that rock leather 24 7. I think it gets lost in the fashion that sometimes you can use these to fuck Right.And use those. You see the bar across your chest, you have a similar one on the back. Yeah. Right. And they're made outta leather cuz leather is very durable. Right. So imagine being off on all fours and using the harness as straps. As handles. Okay. You can also, you can also lead around on the leash. Kinda like a range.Karma: Yeah. right Master Joshua: On a horse. Nah. And yeah, you're not going anywhere cuz those are built to holdDe'Vannon: Yes. . Master Joshua: I mean they look cool too. Right. But like, the one I haven't like here in the back, my,[01:02:00] it's, it's it's meant to , it's meant to hold, to be Karma: sturdy. That was the first time I actually got to grab the shotgun . De'Vannon: I'm so happy. Oh, that's how it's . I'm so happy that was a part of your first time experience. . Master Joshua: Look at that. Four years later, five years later, we still happen. Seriously, . Yeah. Put a strap on.De'Vannon: So then the last thing I wanna talk about, and I thank y'all so much for your time today. I appreciate it immensely. Time is one resource that we cannot get back or create anymore. So I appreciate that when people sit down to give of their time, to me it means everything. And I humbly am thankful for it and I humbly accept it.So in that, in that last cha, you know, chapter in the book, you know, you were really, really giving a lot of like heavy emotion. You know, you were talking about how the burden of this, I guess you could say, like [01:03:00] maybe the secret life or the life you wanted to live, you know, was getting to you, you were like, I so unhappy.and then you've got an exacto knife, and then you begin to cut yourself. And you showed these, these cut wounds to master Joshua. And without really saying much, you know, he, he did. You know, he, he affirmed that he was going to take on this problem for you and then his solution was to Cru was to make you his submissive and to be enslave them for you to become, for him to become your master.You know, in the book you talk about how you were so, like relieved that you've gotten down and kissed his feet and gratitude. So, because I felt like this book is really, really written for people in like similar situations, whether they may find themselves in those situations today or in the future, I really want you to talk about just how unhappy you [01:04:00] were that it brought you to the point of self-mutilation and how what he offered you.Seemed to be like instant relief for you. Karma: WellI was cheating on my husband and I was living a lie. AndI, Joshua and I were too deeply involved. For me to walk away from it, walking away from it was just, it, it felt too much like walking away from my own story. Right. I was, I was invested in it. I wanted it, I did not wanna walk away from it. And every time I walked away from it, it just resulted in me coming back because this was, this is my story, this is what I'm going through.It's not. At some point, I stopped viewing it as a mistake and started viewing it [01:05:00] as my own personal odyssey. I cannot walk away. Uh, It's just like a hero walking away from his movie. You can, there's always a point where he wants to, there's always a point where he tries to, but , he's in the movie, so he stays and he sees the, the, the adventure through.So I couldn't walk away from that. But I also did not have the, the courage to step up to my husband and tell him, this is what I'm going to, because I see I'm, I was, I came from a, I didn't know much about this world going in. And for me, to me, the fact that Joshua has other partners, other women meant that he's not all in there for me, right?He has other women. It's not, I'm probably not that important. So how can I risk my whole family life? . You know, there, there was always that thought of like, you know, if I, if I, if I fail [01:06:00] and, and my husband leaves me, and like if I tell him the truth and it ends up in a divorce mm-hmm. , how am I gonna, will Joshua be there for me?Will there be anything left? Like well Joshua be there for me, you know, tomorrow. like, cuz I don't, it wasn't really clear how much, how, how deep his commitment was. Because coming from a monogamous world, how do you judge commitment? You judge it by you're my only one, right? That's not true. In this case you judge it by I love you more than anybody.It's not true in this case. I, you judge it by I'll give you all. My time, I'll give you it. It just doesn't work that way when you're in a, in, in other kinds of [01:07:00] partnerships. And that made me very wary of him. Plus again, he, he was going through a lot of difficult, his world was forming at that time.He was going through a lot of d

Kristina Supler: Ordinary circumstances.  Susan Stone: Yeah. like, Hey, you know, come you, if you call us for help, that means  Kristina Supler: most of our clients are in a bad place. So when we're dealing with students, it's some type of crisis  Susan Stone: and we don't see the post crisis. We don't get to see the bounce back.  Kristina Supler: Rarely. Yeah. I mean, sometimes we stay in touch with families and, and receive updates, but yeah, I think you're, you said it exactly right. We, we see the worst and we don't get to see the best or the recovery,  Susan Stone: but the one aspect of getting through a legal process at least, or a challenging situation, I think is how resilient a student is when they come to us, because, uh, the students that have a little bit more grit. Mm. Yeah. That's gonna be the word for today of day. The word of the day. The students that show a little more grit are just more present and get through the process a lot. Well, frankly, better for them and better for us. Right. Kristina Supler: I agree. It does help us. Uh, it makes it a little easier for us to do our job in terms of guiding and supporting students going through the crisis. Susan Stone: So I wanna know, and the question always is that we talk about. What makes regardless of the circumstances, Why are some people are just more resilient than others?  Susan Stone: And that's it. Kristina Supler: It's great question. And on that note, I'd like to introduce today's guest. Today we are pleased to be joined by Charlotte Wasserman, who is a freshman at Southern Methodist University, SM u Charlotte hails from Cleveland. And she's really passionate about empowering girls to become the best versions of themselves through her nonprofit. Called, it's a Girl's Life. Charlotte's been working on, it's a Girl's Life since its creation in middle school for her. Kristina Supler: She's hosted several events for teen girls, primarily focused on teaching them about grit and resilience, and her current focus is on growing and being the host of It's a Girls' Life podcast, which empowers young women to be creators of their own stories. Welcome Charlotte.  Kristina Supler: Welcome  Charlotte Wasserman: Charlotte. Hi, . Thanks for having me. Susan Stone: Y. And I have to say that, um, I've known Charlotte since she was been born, and if you wanna talk about grit, someone that I respect a lot and is incredibly strong, beautiful, and resilient, is Charlotte's mom, Halle. So big fan. You can tell her. I did a shout out about her today.  Charlotte Wasserman: I will tell her after this. Susan Stone: So, charlotte, . Grit is a word, but it's an acronym. When we looked at your website, yes, G R I T in all caps, tell us what it stands for and what it really means.  Charlotte Wasserman: Yeah, so. Grit. So grit is obviously as a one word definition about like resilience and getting back out, up and out there after you like fall down or have a challenge in kind of overcoming that. Charlotte Wasserman: But. As to girls' life, we saw grit as more than that and kind of like a framework for people and like girls specifically to live by. So the G stands for Growing Guts and that is growing courage. And confidence I guess you could say. And then the R stands for resilience. Which is, getting back out there after, times are tough and you're experiencing different things, "I" is imperfections and accepting your own imperfections and that, you're not perfect. All around people make mistakes and that's what makes us human.  Charlotte Wasserman: And then T is team, and that means surrounding yourself and the importance of surrounding yourself with people who build you up and support you and can help you through those tough times as well. So between all those, that's like the most important things that I think are for someone who wants to build grits, I guess you would say, and what you need or to like accept when you're building grit in your own life. Susan Stone: That's a lot to unpack actually. That's a lot. .  Kristina Supler: I love that. And I'm just trying to imagine as a, as a middle school student having the maturity and awareness and insight to think about creating this platform and, and executing it. So tell us a little more about what inspired you to do what you're doing and create grit. Charlotte Wasserman: The first thing I would say is that I can't take full responsibility for like the whole G R I T framework because that was actually established a foundation out in California that I found when I was in middle school that was teaching girls, but very like small group settings, middle school and maybe high schools as well about grit and resilience. Charlotte Wasserman: So what happened is that when I was in middle school I was like facing a lot of academic and social challenges as a lot of girls do. And I just realized that there has to be like some way to teach girls about everything that we're all experiencing that will like provide them Clarity on like what they're experiencing, but also how to fix it. Charlotte Wasserman: And when I heard about what this organization out in California was doing and teaching girls about, which was grit I just, my own research and found out was a topic that was mostly taught to adults. And I thought it was so interesting in how you can actually teach that to girls and how meaningful it would be. Charlotte Wasserman: So then I reached out to them. We just started talking about creating an event series for teen girls here in Cleveland. So it wasn't just going to specific middle schools or high schools, but anyone who wanted to come could attend, learn what grit is, hear about it in like real life examples from speakers. Charlotte Wasserman: And again, reminder, reminds them that like, you're not the only person who's dealing with something, whatever that could be. Susan Stone: I have a two-part question, if you'll bear with me a little bit. Mm-hmm. , I struggle with the idea, can you teach grit? Mm-hmm. ,  Susan Stone: is it something you just have to live through something tough and look back, but if, right. Susan Stone: Your whole group is based on the idea that you can. So I'm assuming your answer is yes. , but can you give me an example of a situation where someone learned some tools, what those tools were and they actually got gritty? Charlotte Wasserman: Hmm. That's so interesting question that I really like. No one's ever asked me that question before. Charlotte Wasserman: I think like the part that's teachable about grit is that the reflection part, what you said is helping people realize that like it's something. You grow over time and I think that it's like you have to almost focus on realizing that you have it based on like experiences you've dealt with in the past and how those experiences impact where you are now and how you deal with the different things happening to you right now. Charlotte Wasserman: Or it could be like identifying the problem and realizing, you know, what that taught you. , and that's like a practice of grit because you're realizing like, what is something that I one struggled with and how is that teaching me something about like what I could use today? So I think it's more like the teaching part is more of like the realizing and reflecting part and then a real example of grit and I guess how you see it teaching someone something. Charlotte Wasserman: there's I've, I guess I've talked to a lot of people about it, so I'm trying to pick like my favorite one, but let me think for a second. I would say I can use like my own kind of like personal story as an example, but when I was going to college, which was a recent decision, obviously like last year, a year ago today, I was apply, I was hearing back from a bunch of colleges. Charlotte Wasserman: I remember this time specifically I was hearing back from the college of at now. But one thing was like, . My college decisions were back to back two days in a row. One was a rejection from a school that I made an early decision to, and one was a school that I'm currently at right now. And those were a day apart from each other. Charlotte Wasserman: And I chose, well, I mean through all of the other places that I got accepted into later on, I was able to make the decision to go to the school I'm at right now. And that was a school that no one really from, like my hometown, talked about going to. And it was, I knew it was, I was going from Ohio to a school in Texas and a lot of people had a lot of specific things to say about where I was going off to that weren't always. Charlotte Wasserman: Like a lot of like questions like, oh, like why would you go all the way over there? Or I never ha, I don't have any, any family down there. So I was like, oh, this is so nerve-wracking. Like new experiences, new people, something totally outside of my comfort zone. Charlotte Wasserman: But now that I'm there, I realized that like, even though this was maybe like a tougher decision or something that was a little bit different from just going to a school in Ohio maybe where a lot of people went to, I knew it taught me that. Charlotte Wasserman: I could do something where I don't know anybody and like find people to, be friends with or that I could do something that was like outside of the known and be just fine. So that's like an example. Susan Stone: Well, you're more than just fine. You're actually thriving.  Kristina Supler: But it's interesting to hear you speak about, just taking what you've just shared with us the process of settling on your, your college and you made a decision and people were questioning you and you were sort of doing something different from a lot of your peers surrounding you, and then you found new people. Kristina Supler: It makes me think of the "T" and Grit Team. Mm-hmm. so, . How do you know when to change up your team or what to look for in quote unquote teammates  Susan Stone: and teams change. Right, right. Yeah. I think sometimes we realize. Uh, I know I've had a lot of different life experiences and I've, I feel like I'm a cat who's lived nine lives. Susan Stone: Mm-hmm. and sometimes I look back and I think these were lovely people in my life, but they weren't my team. I'm a little bit of an odd duck, wouldn't you say?  Kristina Supler: Yeah. I mean, I think you've especially gone through experiences where there was a place and a time for a relationship that was supportive and meaningful, and then we evolve and. you reevaluate. But Charlotte, I'm, I'm curious to hear more of your thoughts on changing up your team.  Charlotte Wasserman: Yeah. I think it's really important, like topics to talk about because when I was in high school and middle school, I really struggled with finding the right people to surround myself with. Susan Stone: It's hard, it's hard for everyone. Charlotte Wasserman: Yeah. At any, yeah. I guess it's like kinda a constant thing, but I just remember that was a specific time. , I realized I was hanging out with people who weren't really like supportive I guess, of the direction I was heading in. So then I had to decide that I wanted to find people who were gonna be more supportive of that. Charlotte Wasserman: And that was really scary cuz then I was like, oh, well I didn't really know who to lean on to when I was like going through transition of people. But then I realized that, you know, when you do find people who are not only like supportive of what you're working on, but supportive of like your goals and maybe you have some things in common. Charlotte Wasserman: I think that it is really important because it provides some confidence around things that maybe you find that are important to you but also provides like people who, you know, you can, reach back onto when like things are getting really challenging and you might need support that you don't feel like you can provide only by yourself. But I've realized that even if. And even so like, when I went off to college, I knew that it was gonna be a really exciting experience for me to find even more people that I connected with because when I was in high school and initially was trying to find different groups of people that support me, I always felt like really limited cuz I had a really small high school class. Charlotte Wasserman: And then when I went to college I knew like I would have so many different people that are around me, so I could really go and Look for the kind of people that I wanted to surround myself with. And then it just helped me feel like more confident in myself, but also like confident in things I wanted to work on too, which is really important that I found. Susan Stone: And your team's going to grow again? Yeah. After college. It always changes. , it always changes.  Kristina Supler: Absolutely. Well, and I think it's really nice to hear you talk about taking some risk, the g and then having confidence and, and finding your team people to build you up and support. , Tell us about, I, I wonder this idea of grit and your organization is focused on young women. Kristina Supler: Is teaching grit different for boys and girls, or is it the same?  Charlotte Wasserman: I. Honestly don't exactly know what it's like to teach grit to boys cause I've never had that experience before. I do have one brother.  Susan Stone: But you do have two brothers. Charlotte Wasserman: Well, I do. I was just gonna think about that . However, I don't really talk to them about these top. Charlotte Wasserman: Well, I mean I guess like if I ever had an event or was working on something that's a girl's life, obviously they knew about it, but I never like saw the impact of what that could be because I never focused on a group of got boys before. Fair.  Susan Stone: No, that's fair. And you went to an all girls school? Yes. Charlotte Wasserman: Growing up. Had much experiences. Like until, and I still haven't because even at college it's not like I talked to, I don't really there's obviously it's like a co-ed school, but I'm not, I haven't done like an event with boys ever, so I don't really know the difference. I would just say I've always focused on girls because I am a girl and that was an experience that I knew is. Charlotte Wasserman: Some things that girls do are unique to girls course. So that's why of course I kind of chose to focus in that area Kristina Supler: well and it's work you enjoy doing, so that Right. That makes sense.  Charlotte Wasserman: Yes.  Susan Stone: I'm gonna ask a tough question. Okay. Life is not fair and I thought it was. Yeah, well, equitable at all times. Susan Stone: Equitable. At all. At times. And how do you impart grit when some people's problems are just different in scale with what other people have to deal with. I mean, certainly people dealing with broken homes or disease or illness is different than people dealing with. My boyfriend just broke up with me. Susan Stone: Right. I'm  Kristina Supler: Or, or what we sometimes refer to as mean girl behavior or mean  Susan Stone: girl behavior. Yeah. We deal with a lot of parents calling us, saying, my child's bullied and I have to break it to them that bullying is a technical word and. , you can't make people invite you, your child to the birthday party. That is not a reason to call a lawyer. Susan Stone: It's sad, it's painful. Mm-hmm. , but it's not necessarily now total exclusion. Can be bullying, right? Mm-hmm. , it depends to degrees, but what we're seeing is we've seen some really, really, really bad bullying cases where kids have been assaulted and yeah, psychologically devastated, but that is just a difference from someone not. Susan Stone: liking you  Kristina Supler: and Well, and I think parents sometimes have a, a, they recoil a little when they hear us say, oh,  Susan Stone: we're always given bad news, and unpopular news.  Kristina Supler: Well, and, we're not minimizing the impact of, the quote unquote mean girl behavior. But it's just the reality is that not. All obstacles or difficulties are of similar magnitude or import on an individual's life. Kristina Supler: So,  Susan Stone: so I don't know, have you had experience with someone coming to you crying saying, God forbid I have, you know, I, my mom's got, God forbid, cancer, or my father or I don't have enough money, and it just seems like you can't compare problems, but I just wanted to know what your reflection is. scalability of issues in life. Charlotte Wasserman: Right. I think it's definitely interesting cuz I've always thought about how like, it's amazing that like grit can be. Applied to like such different problems and yet, it could still teach people about what to do when they're experiencing those things. So I always thought that's great that there's a, there's like a need for it because you can teach it to people who are going through like very, very different situations such that you talk about that are maybe life threatening and, but you can also teach it to people who are dealing with Problems that are like, you know, the mean girl thing, sort, sort of situation. Charlotte Wasserman: So I always thought that was very interesting how like, one topic could be taught, like people were experiencing very different things. But I remember like a speaker we had at one of our events, we would always have a, an example person who would share their story. And one year it was a speaker who was talking about how she lost her mom when she was really young and how it. Impacted her in a way that made her start something where she could ha have people share their own stories. Not only as like a way to heal, but also to bring attention to what different things people are dealing with and how to talk about hard feelings that are difficult in life because those are really difficult situations. Charlotte Wasserman: And so it's called Never ever Give Up, and it was like a letter writing. Project where people could submit their own stories about what they were dealing with. And she shared those stories. And then we had all of the attendees write their own stories. And so it was really interesting because you're right, people have different types of problems and some of them are. Charlotte Wasserman: do are more urgent than others, I would say. But that doesn't, I've also found that that doesn't mean that and I don't think you're saying this invalidate like different people's problems because they're both problems. It's just different about what their problems kind of entail and how big that's gonna impact them. Charlotte Wasserman: But grit can be taught to both situations.  Susan Stone: That was really. Well said. Well said. Said that you have a tool that works for any type of problem. Wow. I.  Susan Stone: Yeah.  Kristina Supler: Whoa. So Charlotte, you have your own podcast called It's A Girl's Life. What type of topics do you cover? Who are your guests? You plug your  Susan Stone: podcast, Charlotte. Charlotte Wasserman: Oh yeah. Okay. So it's called, it's a Girl's Life. And it's a lot of empowering and inspirational interviews for young women. So we've talked to a lot of not only like female entrepreneurs, because those stories always have a lot of grit I found in the beginning of their stories and throughout. Charlotte Wasserman: But also I've talked to like young women who are like teenagers that are, some of them have been entrepreneurs, some of them have not been. And then also like what I started to get more interested in was different things that young women could be dealing with and inviting on guests to unpack those situations and help them, provide them advice and what to do when you're dealing with those situations. Charlotte Wasserman: So I had an interview yesterday that was really fun, that I really liked, and she was actually a food nutritionist and we talked a lot about how to deal not only with moving away to college and not having like, , everything that like you would have in your home, like kitchen and everything. Charlotte Wasserman: But also like the mindset of food and that can be really get really toxic for girls. So it's just like a very Yeah. How to be healthy. Yeah. Right. Yeah. And something that I think everyone has kind of dealt with, so I thought that was really interesting to hear her opinion about it, but it's just kind of like empowering and educating girls about not only grit but also different specific topics that can help them when they're growing. Susan Stone: I wanna shift focus a little bit. We talk about using grit to develop our own resilience and then getting a team, but I wanna get your insight on what it takes to be a supportive team member. Mm-hmm. , a supportive mentor, or a supportive friend. And I'm gonna share a story about your own mother. Oh, tell us about, yeah, I, I've got a. Susan Stone: Grit, giving gift from your mom. So I was going through a really, really, really dark period and I mean dark. It was bad. And I was on the phone with Halle and I was driving, driving a court that day, and I just was telling her how low I felt and how dark it felt for me, and I just felt like it was never gonna end. Susan Stone: I'm like getting teary talking about this and Hailey, pause. And said, don't you wanna know how your story ends? I'm really curious. I know this is gonna be an awesome story. Kristina Supler: That's a great question.  Susan Stone: Oh my gosh. It was like the best enough of a sudden. I'm like, that's so smart. Yeah. Yeah. It was so smart because it made me think a, she believed in me. Susan Stone: Mm-hmm. . And it made me believe in me because I was like, yeah, I can do this. So I think we all need someone in our life, but can you give a couple tips out there for women, mothers, students on what it takes to be a good team member? . Charlotte Wasserman: Yeah, I think that's something I've definitely been working on like developing over the past few years. Charlotte Wasserman: Cuz I realized like I wanted to find my own kind of group of people, but that also comes with you are becoming part of someone else's group of people as well. And especially with college has, that's been so fun to realize that. I'll find, I'll like make friends and then not only will I go to them for advice, but I see them coming to advice to me, which is really fun and, and like interesting to see. Charlotte Wasserman: But I think some really good things to focus on is like that I'm also always working on is listening. You have to be like a good listener. So important, hear what they're dealing with and, and not always just come like super quick to respond because sometimes like people just need to kind. Talk about what's happening and get it off their chest. Charlotte Wasserman: And then I think that you need to, I feel like it's really important to like maybe share sometimes. Something you're dealing with that can maybe be on like a similar level sometimes because that can help them see like, oh, if she got through this, maybe a similar situation. Or it could be something of different if you haven't gone through the same things, which won't always happen. Charlotte Wasserman: Maybe that could help them kind of see like there is an end like what I might be dealing with. But then also, Sometimes you just don't know what to say, which is also really hard. And so that's when you just like should be honest with them and be like, I've never had to deal with this myself. Charlotte Wasserman: I don't even know, is, this is like a hard thing for me to grasp poo. And I think honesty is always everyone can understand honesty. And it's good to be honest with the people who you care about cuz it like shows that like, not even, go for like telling them the wrong thing. Charlotte Wasserman: You just wanna tell them like, I'm here for you and like you come and talk to me about this. And like, make sure that they know, like you're here to support them as well, I guess.  Susan Stone: I think that's a great curriculum. Mm-hmm. , I think you should really write that down, what you said, and I'm picking up what you're throwing down. Susan Stone: It's great.  Kristina Supler: Charlotte, based on your experiences and then your guests on your podcast and, and the work you're doing with your organization, what is the biggest challenge impacting young women today in your opinion? Charlotte Wasserman: I think one of the biggest challenges is like, overall confidence for girls. I think we, we see that a lot. Charlotte Wasserman: Which is why sometimes girls are really hesitant to not only like start their own thing, but they think that like they just can't do it and they can't get through it. And I think that. It gets true for all ages. Oh my God. outta the mouth. God. Yeah, you're spot on. Yep. Problem that like, I mean, everybody of course has, but I just see a lot in like girls, they just think there's no, yeah. Charlotte Wasserman: And I also think like another thing is they don't think they're like worth being able to get better too, which I think is like really sad because like everyone's worth improve themselves. and then they just don't do anything and they like won't like, try to improve their situation. Charlotte Wasserman: So I think that's definitely a big problem. Susan Stone: what are your dreams for this organization? Is this something that you wanna continue with? Or after you graduate from college, do you think you're gonna pass the baton?  Charlotte Wasserman: Hmm. I think like I've been like, constantly asking myself that as well. Once I went to college, I knew like I wanted to give myself the time to evolve myself and like figure everything out there. Charlotte Wasserman: But now that I've settled more into the college experience I found that like it's definitely impacting girls and girls who are younger than me too has always been a part of me. So I don't ever really see that ever going away because. . Just certain moments in my own experiences where I've seen like the impact we've done has been really inspirational. Charlotte Wasserman: But I think that, I think probably the way that we do what we do will continue to change over time and maybe our mission will change slightly too, but I'm not really sure. And I think that there's definitely still a need for this content to be taught. I just don't know exactly what it will turn. Charlotte Wasserman: Who's we?  Susan Stone: Who do you work with?  Charlotte Wasserman: Oh, well I do, I work with the organization still in California. They're just kind of like the person that I worked with there. Sarah Anderson. She left the organization and started her own coaching business for girls, but we worked together on the events for the past four years, and I would work with her on it, but I also think what, and then we also did some podcast episodes together too, but I. Charlotte Wasserman: something that I always wanted to do was grow the kind of like it's a girls life team and involve some other girls that are around my age to work with them on it because I've always kind of done a lot of the work by myself and I think it's fun to involve other people and help them, like make an impact on girls too. Charlotte Wasserman: So I would love to work on it with someone else as well, but I have to find that person.  Kristina Supler: What do you see as next for the organization?  Charlotte Wasserman: Well, I really want to, since I go to school in Dallas, Texas and it's a really close-knit community I've found so far, especially with the university that I go to. Charlotte Wasserman: I really would love to do an event with Dallas girls in the schools in the area, cuz there's a lot of schools that are right near my college. And then maybe something with college girls. I just don't know what that.  Susan Stone: Kristine and I work with a lot of Greek organizations. Yeah. And  Charlotte Wasserman: That could be cool  Susan Stone: too. Susan Stone: that could be really cool question. Mm-hmm. , do you think sororities are good for building the resilience for girls or do you think the whole rush process where we basically girls go and select on. Criteria that's not always based on depth. Do you think Substitute. Thank you. I was open for the word super blur. Susan Stone: Uh, I mean, do you think sororities take away from resilience, build resilience, or good, bad, or. Neutral.  Kristina Supler: Hmm. Interesting question I had to ask. I'm very curious to hear what your thoughts are, Charlotte. Yeah, this is  Susan Stone: real talk. This is real Talk with Susan and Kristina. You gotta get real  Charlotte Wasserman: with you. Right. I think it's interesting cuz I'm actually gonna go through that process in January myself which I'm really excited about. Charlotte Wasserman: Ooh, you'll have to  Susan Stone: report back. Yeah. We're gonna have you back to talk about do sororities foster resilience.  Charlotte Wasserman: Yeah, it's definitely interesting cause. . There's so much I've been hearing about it for the past few months, but also like so much is still like unknown about the experience. Cause I haven't done it yet. Charlotte Wasserman: But I think it depends on the individual and like what they want out of the process. Because obviously there's some cases where people are going to join a sorority for maybe like the quote unquote wrong reasons. Sometimes It depends what they want out of it. And like for me personally, like I really wanna find like a group of people who have similar like values as me, I guess. Charlotte Wasserman: Like they wanna make an impact with the people that they like surround themselves with, but also like wanna find a group of people that are like supportive. So like knowing that I think is probably setting me apart from other people or just, maybe doing it to. For social stuff, which is obviously another reason why I wanna join sorority, but not the only reason. Charlotte Wasserman: And. It also depend, I don't know, they kept talking to us about we would have these p and m like potential new member meetings before Rush actually started, and they would tell us about like how they viewed it as like a values based system. So how you should be finding the houses that align with similar values as you. Charlotte Wasserman: Probably not. A lot of people think about it as much as I have, but like I always thought about like how that means. Oh, I should be clear than on what I want and why I want it. And hopefully that will work out in the end too.  Susan Stone: Oh, we have to have you come back. Such an interesting  Kristina Supler: gossip. You are such an impressive young woman. Kristina Supler: Oh my gosh. Such a treat speaking with you today, and I really encourage our listeners to check out it's a girl's life and check out the podcast, the organization, everything you have to offer. This has really been a lot of fun.  Susan Stone: and I hope this organization goes viral on every campus. There should be, and it's a girls' life organization everywhere and in every high school, and much success. Susan Stone: I know I am beaming with pride.  Charlotte Wasserman: Thanks for joining so much.

Samantha (MJ McAdams from Humble Hauntings and Octoberpod) and Calvin (J.T. from Brew Crime Podcast) are moving into their new, very haunted, home. All the items they find in the house still work without batteries or being plugged in. Throughout this journey, presented by Octoberpod, Calvin and Samantha will discover the terrifying secret of the 13th Hour. The revelations will shock you!   It's Friday the 13th, the day when anything is possible. You are listening to Rogue Transmissions.   Paige, of Reverie True Crime, comes over the airwaves to explain the origins of Friday the 13th. Why are people all over the world so superstitious, and fearful, and consider this day the unluckiest of all?   Next up, it's Brew Crime Podcast with J.T. and Mike! They're talking about Sam Patch. A daredevil, who dared a little too much one Friday the 13th, decided to perform his biggest stunt involving a bear, Niagara Falls, and Genesee Falls.   Hey! Curious Cat Podcast, hosted by Jennifer, is on now! She's discussing something mysterious and haunting. As of now, 15 feet have washed ashore on the coast of the Salish Sea in British Columbia, Canada and a few in the state of Washington that matched some of the other feet in British Columbia. Thirteen of those feet have been identified. Where are these feet coming from? Who do these feet belong to?   Suddenly, Our True Crime Podcast, with hosts Jen and Cam, breaks through the static. They tell us about Samantha and Calvin, the love birds who are moving into this eerie home. Everything is not as it seems and you won't believe what is uncovered.   Then, Nikki, of Serial Napper, comes on. The classic horror film, Friday the 13th, may seem unreal but Nikki tells us about a terrifying tragedy that occurred in 1960 in Finland. Four teenagers went camping at Lake Bodom and were slain. This case seems like it is straight out of a horror movie, but unfortunately, these are true events that will make you second guess that summer camping trip.   Spine Chillers and Serial Killers, hosted by Emma, Tash, and Becky, switches on. Their first story happened on Friday the 13th in 1972 when Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 was headed to Santiago, Chile.

Og så står den ellers på krisehåndtering af øverste skuffe. Det populære par, kendisserne/influencerne/journalisterne/radioværterne har tilbragt nytåret på en charterferie i helvedes forgård i Egypten med tyndskid i lange baner og larm. Det er selvfølgelig The Jencels, vi taler om. Og kriser har de nok af. Vi forsøger at nå til bunds i nogle af dem: Hvorfor lagde parret idylliske feriefotos op samtidig med at de oplevede deres livs feriemareridt OG forhandlede med rejsebureauet Atlantis Rejser om opgraderinger, tilbagebetaling af penge OG fremkom med ”trusler” om at fortælle sandheden om deres lorteferie til deres mange følgere? Hvorfor valgte Atlantis at gå direkte imod de to populære instagrammere og blande sig i debatten på en 3. instagrammers Instagramprofil? Hvordan håndterede Maria Jencel krisen på sociale medier og i medierne generelt? Spørgsmålene hober sig op, og vi forsøger at svare på dem. Selvom den nyeste krise i smykkedamerne Manniches liv, godt kan lyde en anelse crazy og over the top, så er den alligevel interessant at tale om. Berlingske har nemlig sat en hård hund af en graverjournalist på sagen, og i denne uge dokumenterer mediet at smykkebiksen JEWLSCPH kæmper med både image, troværdighed og likviditet. Men The Manniches er fuldstændig ligeglade med Berlingskes dokumentation, vrede kunders vidnesbyrd og dårlige anmeldelser, de to damer siger, at det hele er en stor løgn, og de rykker helt tæt sammen i bussen sammen med deres fans og mener tværtimod at det er dem, der er ofre for en sammensværgelse.

In this week's “22 Lessons on Ethics and Technology" special series, I sit down with Dr. Evelynn Hammonds to talk about how race and gender have shaped the histories of science, medicine, and technological development. We explore the divisions between investigations of gender within scientific and technological inquiry, and race within these same fields. How can an intersectional approach challenge our science and technologies to better serve, and include, a broader diversity of people? How have our concepts of science and technology, and our assumptions about what they can and should do, been shaped by exclusions? How can those trained and working in the Humanities can learn from those trained in and working in the Sciences and Technology fields, and vice-versa? How does an understanding of the history of ideas, and the people and forces that have shaped them, inform our ability to build, innovate, and create work cultures that are more ethical and equitable? Professor Hammonds is the Barbara Gutmann Rosenkrantz Professor of the History of Science and Professor of African and African American Studies in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health at Harvard University.  She was the first Senior Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity at Harvard University (2005-2008).

Professor Hammonds' areas of research include the histories of science, medicine and public health in the United States; race, gender and sexuality in science studies; feminist theory and African American history.  She has published articles on the history of disease, race and science, African American feminism, African-American women and the epidemic of HIV/AIDS; analyses of gender and race in science, medicine and public health and the history of health disparities in the U.S.. Professor Hammonds' current work focuses on the history of the intersection of scientific, medical and socio-political concepts of race in the United States.  She is currently director of the Project on Race & Gender in Science & Medicine at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard. Prof. Hammonds holds a B.S. in physics from Spelman College, a B.E.E. in electrical engineering from Ga. Tech and an SM in Physics from MIT.  She earned the PhD in the history of science from Harvard University. She served as a Sigma Xi Distinguished Lecturer (2003-2005), a visiting scholar at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, a Post-doctoral Fellow in the School of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and a Visiting Professor at UCLA and at Hampshire College. Professor Hammonds was named a Fellow of the Association of Women in Science (AWIS) in 2008.  She served on the Board of Trustees of Spelman and Bennett Colleges and currently on the Board of the Arcus Foundation, and the Board of Trustees of Bates College. In 2010, she was appointed to President Barack Obama's Board of Advisers on Historically Black Colleges and Universities and in 2014 to the President's Advisory Committee on Excellence in Higher Education for African Americans.

2023 er skudt i gang med første udgave af Småt Brændbart Ugens Krise og der er ild i podcasten. Københavns kulturborgmester Mia Nyegaard beskyldes for dårlig ledelse og forvaltningen er i oprør. Men hvad handler sagen egentlig om? Er det bare en crazy chef eller handler krisen også om et lavt ambitionsniveau hos nogle medarbejdere, der ikke tåler kritik fra en kvindelig politisk chef, der vil have orden i penalhuset? Og hvad med fagforeningerne? Får de mon julelys i øjnene, når de kan banke en sag op? Vi når også forbi den nye chef for lobby-bryggeriforeningen, Nick Hækkerups brok over Sundhedsstyrelsens nye alkoholanbefalinger. Sjovt nok var Hækkerup, for 20 minutter siden, S-minister og mente noget helt andet. Kommunikationen sejler som sædvanlig i det Danske Kongehus, men heldigvis er den svenske Konge knaldet ud over forskelsbehandlingen af hans søn, da tronfølgeloven blev lavet om og man besluttede at Prinsesse Victoria (selvfølgelig) skulle være Dronning. Hvor meget ude af trit med tiden og folkestemningen kan man overhovedet være? For slet ikke at tale om det engelske Kongehus eller det spanske for den sags skyld. Lyt endelig med.

At one point in his career, Fred was both the Scrum Master and manager for the teams he supported. As he reflected on the impact of the retrospectives he facilitated, he noticed that even though the retrospectives took place, the same things kept coming up at every retrospective. The retrospectives were helpful for the teams to “vent” their frustrations and talk about what was not working well, however, there was never time to discuss the improvement actions. This anti-pattern helped Fred realize that he needed to change the way he facilitated retrospective meetings, and he put in place a simple rule that ensured the retrospectives were impactful, not just helpful for the team! Featured Book of the Week: Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time by Sutherland The book Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time by Sutherland, was a critical book for Fred's career and personal development in his understanding and practice of Scrum and Agile. One of the key lessons Fred highlights from the book is the razor sharp focus on delivering something “immediately”, by the use of questions such as “what can we deliver right away?” Do you wish you had decades of experience?
