Bottom line. Here are ways working through a BAD DAY can build character: -Makes you more resourceful -Helps you prioritize and realize what matters most -More confident in your ability to weather the storms - it's all about self esteem!! -Helps you stay grounded -Helps you to understand and help others

For the first time, we have two guests on the podcast—Eli Lake and Eliana Johnson—to talk about the strange emergence all at once of anti-Biden stories in the mainstream media and what they portend. Give a listen.
Summary: We live in the era of the most advanced medical technologies the world has ever seen, but are we really that much healthier for it? According to the CDC, 6 in 10 adults in the US are living with at least one chronic disease, 4 in 10 have two or more. In the wake of the pandemic, those numbers look primed to keep going up. Modern health care systems treat these illnesses after the fact, but what if healthcare began long before we got sick? And what if the best preventative medicine starts with something as simple as the food we eat? With today's science-based advancements in nutrition for health and longevity, the old adage "food is medicine" may be closer to the truth than ever before. Today's guest is Dr. Joseph Antoun, the CEO and Chairman of L-Nutra, a unique nutri-tech company applying cutting-edge science to nutrition with the aim of helping people live longer, healthier lives. Dr. Antoun served as the Chairman of the Board at the Global Healthspan Policy Institute and as a member of Forbes Business Development Council. Before joining L-Nutra, Dr. Antoun was the CEO of Health Systems Reform, the Co-Director of the Center for Health Policy at the University of Chicago, and the Co-Editor in Chief of the Journal of Helath Systems and Reform, among other accomplishments. In this episode, we speak about the science behind L-Nutra's fasting mimicking technology, what they see as their three areas of growth potential, and how their programs and products stand out in a crowded market.Highlights: Dr. Antoun explains the scientific premise behind L-Nutra's products and programs (03:22) Dr. Antoun's describes how a career in medicine led him to L-Nutra (05:45) What are the health benefits of fasting, and how do L-Nutra products mimic its effects? (09:34) Why are customers more likely to complete a ProLon "fast" than other diets or meal plans? (16:33) Dr. Antoun walks through some of the products under the L-Nutra umbrella, including Fast Bar and Nutrition for Longevity (18:44) L-Nutra's approach to differentiation (22:18) Dr. Antoun unpacks the three areas of growth potential L-Nutra is focusing on (23:54) Links:ICR TwitterICR LinkedInICR WebsiteJoseph Antoun, MD, PhD LinkedInJoseph Antoun, MD, PhD BioL-Nutra LinkedInL-Nutra WebsiteProLon WebsiteFast Bar WebsiteNutrition for Longevity WebsiteFeedback:If you have questions about the show or have a topic in mind you'd like discussed in future episodes, email our producer, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Are you tired of throwing money out the door on generic Facebook ads in hopes of potentially landing a client? Are you looking to invest in the long term game of cultivating authentic relationships? Then you're going to love our guest this week on Purpose Chasers ® This week, I am speaking with Aleric Heck, YouTube Ads Expert and Founder of AdOutreach where he and his company have helped hundreds of clients leverage the power of YouTube Ads to generate a collective 8-figures in revenue. With 10+ years experience on YouTube and scaling his first channel to over 400k+ subscribers, Aleric helps Coaches, Consultants & Course Creators generate leads & sales through YouTube Ads. As we discuss the difference between an “expense” and an “investment”, we dive into how to utilize multiple social platforms by researching your market and the needs of your ideal client. Aleric shares with us that in order to build trust with your clients, you need to be investing in authentic connection and sharing your story in a way that helps your audience. Topics Discussed: Why individuals are sick and tired of entrepreneurs hard selling them The difference between an “expense” and an “investment” How true connection lies within storytelling Learning to utilize multiple social platforms The secret sauce to reaching your ideal client Why you need to be building trust within your brand Gain access to resources and/or work with Mark or his marketing team direct visit: www.markcrandall.net Connect with Aleric Heck Website: https://www.adoutreach.com/gifts --- Quotes: Mark Crandall “Make sure you do your research.” “So many individuals get started in the online and digital space and all their attention is focused on profit. But their funnel sucks and it's not working no matter how much money they put behind it because they're not bringing the value on the front end.” “The more value I bring clients, the higher the conversion rate.” “In my experience, you can't convince somebody of the power of digital marketing.” “The world is sick of hard selling. They want authentic relationships.” “Authentic relationships make the sales.” “Hard Selling doesn't work because it causes a lot of frustration on the backend based on the feeling of being pressured into a decision that they didn't want to make.” Aleric Heck “You need to make sure that you are putting yourself forward and that people trust you. You need to connect with people and share your story.” “The biggest mistake people make is that they don't provide value or trust behind their product or service.” “The best thing that can happen is that people come to a decision on their own because then they are all in. They're actually excited about implementing and taking action.”

We're back with another packed episode of the AFTN Soccer Show for your listening pleasure, as guest co-host Harjeet Johal joins us to talk Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS, and women's soccer. The Whitecaps are the form team in MLS right now and they've just knocked off the league leading LAFC thanks to another late show at BC Place at the weekend. We look back over that 1-0 win, the standout performers, the return of Max Crepeau and Marc Dos Santos, and where that result leaves the 'Caps in the Western Conference standings as they move into the second half of the season. Turning our attention away from MLS and to the women's game, we look at Canada's chances at the CONCACAF championships that have begun in Mexico this week with World Cup and Olympic places on the line. Here's the rundown for the main segments from the episode: 02.57: Whitecaps late late show beats LAFC 31.01: LAFC chatter on MDS, Jordan Harvey, Sicknote 43.58: Max Crepeau audio and discussion 62.46: CONCACAF Women's championship chat 75.10: Wavelength - The Thornlie Boys - The Goalie
This episode centers around the urgency to start turning the keys on your purpose in life.

• Empathy is a nonnegotiable ingredient in genuine, connected interactions, and one easy way to create it is to give compliments. Make it authentic, meaningful to the person receiving it and specific, Avoid insincere exaggeration or vague niceties that don't speak to a person's values. • Learn to recognize “bids for attention” because when you “turn toward” these unspoken requests for connection and validation, you deepen and strengthen relationships of all kinds, and respond with empathy. Turning against or away from these requests does the opposite. • Practice the art of nonviolent communication by using four simple steps: first, observe without judgment or interpretation. Second, express how you feel without blame or making anyone responsible. Third, express your needs plainly and assertively, without implicating the other person. Finally, calmly express a specific request that stems from the previous three steps, without entitlement or force. This will make any difficult or emotional conversation infinitely easier. • Use language softeners. Softer language can help foster trust, empathy, and likeability in all social situations. Use modal verbs and qualifiers, focus on the positive, be mindful of your word choice and use a gentler, more respectful and unhurried style to communicate a friendly willingness to cooperate.

God The Gardener | Pastor Jon Adams Each of us have something to be thankful for. Maybe you're enjoying some freedoms in your life—thank God for that. Maybe there are blessings of health, family, a job, or spiritual fruit in your life—thank God for that. Maybe you're in a season of pruning from God, or a season where not much is going your way—you can thank him for that too, as he reminds you that this world is not your home, and that he is preparing a place in Heaven for all who have put their trust in him.
For the past 3+ years, we've been getting loud on this podcast, where our stated mission is to help White women use their privilege to uproot systemic racism without centering themselves in the process. This summer, we've been specifically focused on answering the question we often get, “what can we do to be more anti-racist?” and have been releasing bite sized pieces of our work, especially with regard to our recent book, so that we can help White women and allies do this work. Then, we got a gut punch last week in the form of the Dobbs v. Jackson opinion, which effectively overturned Roe v. Wade and left the regulation of abortion access up to “elected officials of the states,” which set off a number of trigger laws and leaves abortion, and reproductive justice in general, in jeopardy for anyone who has a uterus, or any birthing person, in this country. So today, we are responding with our thoughts and suggestions. What to listen for: The problems we had with some of the knee-jerk reactions we saw from White women on social media How disappointing it is to hear so many stories of senior-level White women not speaking up against this decision to remove bodily autonomy from women in the United States Things to stop doing (stop playing the game; stop letting men control the conversation; stop resorting to performative allyship on social media, Things to start doing (start putting being a woman first before being White; start learning from people who've been in this fight for a long time, as in, Black, brown, and other marginalized identities; start using your voice in your own spheres of influence Sign up for our emails so you get the two-parter that's coming out with a list of the resources that we believe are going to make the most difference for the most impacted individuals: https://www.dearwhitewomen.com/email-signup
In this episode we discuss how studying the local market comparables will ensure you understand the local market well. Remember chances are the client has done research so make sure to do yours. Being on time is being late. Being early is a great way to ensure you are on time and set up by the time the client arrives. Turning on all the lights and opening the blinds can make a huge difference. A bright room not only feels more friendly but it also appears to be larger.

Hunger to have our nation ripple with revival from coast to coast fills many hearts. How can we help in God's sovereign move to draw us back to Him? Is it still possible? Studying historic revivals shows us certain patterns. The Bible has a verse considered a classic for revival: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 Obedience, prayer, and the unity of believers seem to be forefunners of any revival. Is there more that we can do though God is the author and sustainer of revival? What is our role as we cry out, "Father, revive us again?" This is a meditation on what America can do, but the same call to action spoken of in this episode applies for nations throughout the world. God bless America. God bless the nations of the world. https://www.pammorrisonministries.com
Doubling your income, you say? Sounds great, until you think about all the time and energy it'll take. Especially if you're working as a coach, there's only so much of you to go around. And I say that as someone who loves coaching and believes it to be my literal purpose. But when your job is to give of yourself all day, it can take its toll. The amount of empathy, understanding, and guidance it takes to lead someone on a journey to wellness, be that physical, financial, or mental, is vast and also, finite. At some point, you only have so much energy to dedicate to your clients when you're working with them in a one-on-one space. That's why we'll talk more in this episode about: How to gauge if you're ready for multiple offers What those offers can look like How to develop them without reinventing the wheel Figuring out ways you can lean into whatever is leading people to you and results is key in finding other things to offer. It's figuring out what you're already great at, throwing in a little snippet of your larger OG program, and adjusting the format to be for a group or self-led. It's taking the framework but changing the picture so that the results are the same, just with a different look.

THANK YOU to every single person who took the time to listen to last week's pod. We received more feedback than ever before, and your texts, emails, comments, and DMs made a huge impression. Sometimes the most important thing is just knowing that you're not alone, and that your struggle is echoed by so many others around the world. Thank you so much for all your support and kindness, and I hope that you also feel all of the love that our community is putting out into the world. ❤️ Today Lisa continues the conversation about relapse and recovery and shares the moments in her life that taught her the greatest lessons. Topics include: [6:34] Turning 25 the month after Lisa's dad passed and how she learned to survive without him. How one moment showed her that she could survive feeling so much emotion that she thought she would die. [17:00] Working with similar deep emotion and trauma with another coach. The way her body tried to distract her from the feelings by being physically cold, and how accepting that physical sensation opened up the emotional sensations. [23:30] How do we not get distracted by body image or weight gain or food when the emotional issue is the true source? Recognizing what your body or mind needs in order to express and release the emotions you're holding onto. [31:05] Getting to the root of our conditioning - feeling happy or feeling comfortable allllll the time is not a realistic expectation for ourselves and it's not what life is like. Getting into our bodies and into stillness to understand what those feelings are trying to tell us. [41:00] Even as a child, Lisa didn't feel like an emotional eater - eating in response to feeling emotions. Her emotional eating was preemptive, helping her ignore that the feelings were happening at all. This can be food, work, exercise, anything that we can focus on that isn't our emotions. [45:23] The “did do” vs “didn't do” list. The temptation to return to old habits and disordered eating. Early Bird pricing for September group coaching program is available!

The tide is turning. Our culture is changing. Public opinion about Jesus and those who follow him is perhaps at an all-time low. And yet, in the midst of rising opposition, Jesus remains the source of life and the answer we are all looking for. He offers himself freely and fully. For those who are weary of this world, Jesus refreshes and renews.

There's no question that people are the weakest link in Cybersecurity. So we invest in educating people about security risks and how to handle them. We try building cybersecurity champions who can help spread the word about good security practices. We introduce incentive programs for “security-first” behaviors. However, the results are still disappointing and prove that computers are designed to be secure while people are not. Can we do better? How can we make security a foundation of our organizations and help ensure that we can continue to grow with confidence?

The religious definitions of “absolute truth” and “absolute certainty” are rejected by me because there is no scientific confirmation for these pious concepts. 17 Cognitive Distortions to Know: Magnification/minimization: Magnifying the negative and minimizing the positive. 2.

Jennifer Senior was a long-time staff writer at New York magazine and a daily book critic for the NYT. Her own book is the bestseller, All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood. She’s now a staff writer at The Atlantic, where she won the 2022 Pulitzer for “What Bobby McIlvaine Left Behind,” a story about 9/11. But in this episode we primarily focus on her essay, “It’s Your Friends Who Break Your Heart.”You can listen to the episode right away in the audio player above (or click the dropdown menu to add the Dishcast to your podcast feed). For two clips of our convo — on why friends with different politics are increasingly rare, on how Jesus died for his friends — pop over to our YouTube page. A new transcript is up in honor of what we are still learning about Trump’s attempted violent coup: Bob Woodward and Robert Costa on the perpetual peril of Trump. Below is a segment of that convo — probably the most significant one we’ve had on the Dishcast yet:Turning to the debate over abortion in the ashes of Roe, a reader dissents:I’m having a hard time understanding why you’re so misleading about abortion rights in the US compared to other nations, and naive about protection of the other rights under the 14th Amendment. Germany allows abortions up to 12 weeks for any reason, but what’s remarkable about Germany is not the 12-week mark, but that Germany offers pre-natal care, child care, employment guarantees, etc. that make it much easier for a woman if she chooses to go through with her pregnancy. The US doesn’t have anything like this. And even with the new right in America pretending to hop on board the social insurance train, passing any laws in a conservative-majority Congress that would provide more social services to pregnant women would deliberately NOT address or protect the right of a woman to control her own fertility — that is, to decide to have a child or not. In other words, the interests of a woman’s bodily autonomy and reproductive control would be denied. That makes women, on the whole, unable to live freely in society. But we don’t have to hop over to Europe to run a comparison. Canada protects abortion rights for any reason, with most clinics providing the procedure up to 23 weeks. This aligns with the (previous) fetal viability cutoff that Roe protected. And recently Mexico decriminalized abortion entirely, which paves the way for full, legal abortion rights.The US is now the regressive anomaly, not the progressive outlier you insist we are. And your idea that abortion can just be decided via democracy is cute — maybe that would’ve been true in the past — but SCOTUS could care less about the legislative process. You only have to look at their recent gun decision to realize that. You should make these things clear when you discuss abortion, instead of conveniently obfuscating the context and facts.As far as your confidence that the other rights under the 14th Amendment — gay marriage, access to contraception, etc. — will stand firm, I’m not sure why. Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Coney-Barrett evoked stare decisis in their confirmation hearings, and this turned out to be a shameless lie from all of them. With the conservative majority in place, they could then take up the Dobbs case and use it to overturn Roe entirely — stare decisis be damned.Alito left the door open to address Obergefell, etc. in his draft opinion, so why would you think Thomas taking it a step further is just him “trolling”? The majority of Americans wanted Roe left in place; its provisions were the compromise that balanced the interests of the woman with that of the fetus that you incorrectly thought was lacking. (Listen to Ezra Klein’s podcast with court expert Dahlia Lithwick to understand why that is). Yet despite its popularity, Roe was struck down. The majority of Americans support gay marriage. But the conservative court has publicly stated now that they don't care about what Americans want or think. Alito and Thomas have clearly said what they're willing to go after next. Kavanaugh playing footsie with the idea that those other rights are safe is just another lie that you are too willing to fall for, as I was too willing to think they wouldn't, in the end, touch Roe.As far as healthcare access in Germany, Katie Herzog made that point during our “Real Time” appearance last Friday:From a “Real Time” watcher:I disagree with you on quite a few issues, but appreciated your level-headed commentary on Bill Maher’s show. You’re one of the only people I saw today who forcefully made the point that the SCOTUS decision still allows for action by Congress — it’s a crucial point that has been totally lost in this discussion.From another fan of Bill’s show:I appreciated your take pointing out that the US is the only country that has made abortion rights a constitutional right, and I do understand your argument that this is something that needs to be decided through the democratic process. But I’m wondering if perhaps, on a deeper level, you’re shooting yourself in the foot. Your attitude has been for a long time that America is unique, exceptional, in its supposed commitment to individual freedom, as reflected in its constitution. Doesn’t that imply that enshrining personal rights in its constitution is in fact a perfect evocation to our country’s exceptionalism, what sets it apart from the cynical bickering and proceduralism of European parliamentary systems?I believe in democracy, tempered by constitutional restraints. So the kind of judicial supremacy you seem to be advocating seems outside that. I repeat that I would not have repealed Roe, for stare decisis and social stability reasons. But for the same reason, I wouldn’t have voted for it in 1973. I also believe that the Court could approximate your vision, in defending minority rights. But women are hardly a minority, and many women — at about the same rate as men — want abortion to be illegal.Many more dissents, and other reader comments on abortion, here. That roundup addressed the concern over stare decisis that readers keep bringing up. As I wrote then:Yes, I worry about stare decisis — but it is not an absolute bar to changing precedents. Akhil Amar, the renowned constitutional scholar at Yale, rebuts the same argument. Amar also just appeared on Bari’s podcast, in an episode titled, “The Yale Law Professor Who Is Anti-Roe But Pro-Choice” — a great listen.Bari addressed the Dobbs decision in her new piece, “The Post-Roe Era Begins.” Another reader looks at the legislative route:I think President Biden and the Democrats as a whole would be in a far better position with voters today if over the past 18 months they had taken that same “small bites” approach on a variety of other issues: border security, election reform and just about any other challenge where they now have nothing to show the American voters because they approached those issues if they had significant majorities in each house. They could even take this “small bites” approach right now on the abortion issue, given (as you’ve documented) that the vast majority of Americans favor access to abortions with reasonable restrictions. Instead, Chuck Schumer runs a bill that’s even more permissive than Roe.I know it’s naïve to think we can take politics out of policymaking, but maybe, given the election hand they were dealt, it would have been good politics to pursue progress over progressivism. Right now they’d be running on a far different record (one of being the adults in the room) and could present a much stronger claim for leading our nation. Instead, they wasted a lot of time and opportunity pretending they had the clout to adopt the entire far-left progressive agenda.Another reader delves into the Court precedents that Democrats are wringing their hands over:You wrote about Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell: “Thomas also concedes that there could be other constitutional defenses for these previous decisions beyond ‘substantive due process.’”There is one defense, at least. The 14th Amendment has a due process clause and an equal protection clause. When Casey upheld Roe, the right to abortion was based upon due process, not equal protection. Dobbs found that due process did not guarantee the right to abortion. Equal protection of the laws is different. If a state allows an opposite-sex couple to marry or have sex, but bans a similarly situated same-sex couple from doing so, then equal protection of the laws is denied based upon sex, in violation of the 14th Amendment. If there were a state where females were banned from obtaining abortions but males were specifically permitted to have abortions, then that would be a denial of equal protection, based upon sex. But there is, of course, no world in which that would happen, and if there were, the state could simply ban males from having abortions as well and cure the equal-protection problem. Obergefell was based upon both due process and equal protection, so if due process is removed we still have equal protection. Lawrence was decided on due process alone, but it easily could be upheld based upon equal protection. (Justice O’Connor, in concurring in the ruling, said she would have relied upon equal protection instead of due process.) So Lawrence and Obergefell seem safe. Griswold does not seem safe under equal protection, but it may be safe under other provisions, although no state is currently seriously trying to ban the sale of contraceptives. Although Bostock was a decision based upon the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and not on the Constitution, Gorsuch ruled that the law that banned sex discrimination in employment applied to gays and transgender people. His reasoning was that if you fire a female employee for being married to a women but don’t fire a male employee for being married to a woman, then you are discriminating based upon the employee’s sex. There is a very strong argument that the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause works similarly. I broadly agree with this. Speaking of the transgender debate, a parent writes:While I generally agree with your balanced approach, I think you are still missing what is fueling the alarm on the right. As a parent of a 14 year old, I’m very aware of the extraordinary confusion that some teens now face because of the mainstream promotion of gender identities. For many kids, all this is harmless and ridiculous, and they tune it out. For a very tiny number of kids, this information may be extremely necessary, and perhaps even lifesaving, so they don’t feel so alone. But unfortunately, I believe there is a quite significant number of kids that have come to believe that all their teen problems will be solved if they simply lop off a few body parts. A few days ago I caught up with a friend who is a wreck because her 14-year-old daughter asked if she could cut off her breasts. This girl has some issues with body anxiety and acceptance, like the majority of teen girls, and has now decided she can avoid all the bad aspects of maturing into a woman by simply becoming a man, which in her mind is closer to remaining a girl, which is what she really wants. The mother is trying to help every way she can, and is about as caring and progressive as a parent can possibly be. But you have to understand how parents today are simply helpless to combat the flood of bizarre, foolish, and/or utterly toxic information that their kids find on the internet, or in social media with their classmates. We entirely ban our 14-year-old from all social media, and from all internet sites except for those needed for school, because we have seen time and time again how kids’ lives are getting wrecked from all that sludge. Most parents are simply not equipped to handle it. Many aren’t able to police their child as thoroughly as we do, and for those on the right with kids, I believe this very real damage has caused some to turn to any platform such as QAnon or other fringe groups that can make sense of this real trauma and harm to their kids. If you don’t have kids, it’s very easy to dismiss this as hysteria. But if you are aware of what's happening to kids nowadays, it’s truly terrifying.Lisa Selin Davis would agree; her new piece on Substack is titled, “It’s a Terrifying Time to Have a Gender-Questioning Kid.” And I completely understand where the reader is coming from. I find the relentless promotion of concepts derived from critical gender and critical queer theory to be destabilizing to kids’ identities, lives and happiness. These woke fanatics are taking the real experience of less than a half percent of the population and imposing it as if it is some kind of choice for everyone else. This is called “inclusion.” It is actually “indoctrination.”Telling an impressionable gay boy he might be a girl throws a wrench into his psychological development, adding confusion, possible generating bodily mutilation. Making all of this as cool as possible — as so many teachers and schools now do — is downright disturbing. The whole idea that all children can choose their pronouns because the tiniest proportion have gender dysphoria is a form of insanity. But it’s an insanity based on critical theory whose goal is the dismantling of all norms, and deconstruction of objective reality by calling it a function of “white supremacy.” This next reader has “a theory I’ve wanted to float by you”:I’m increasingly becoming of the opinion that the modern trans/gender movement is the twisted offspring of something in the gay rights movement that we thought was a good thing but actually wasn’t: the notion that someone is “born that way.” Today, we increasingly feel the need to diagnose children who were “born a certain way” and then provide medical interventions for something that is aggressively conflating the physical and the mental. (I’m using the historical Abrahamic distinction between the two here, sure there’s a philosophical debate about whether or not this distinction exists.) And that makes perfect sense if you think that the foundation of acceptability for these immutable identities is determined at birth — we have medicine in service of zeitgeist.I think the original sin here is going with “what we could get done” in the gay rights movement and stopping before we finished the job — of letting everyone know that these are preferences, and you need to respect and love people regardless of the choices they make and not just because they “can’t help it” because they were “born that way.” If we were to do away with this biological imperative driving identity, we’d end up with what we should really be striving for: radical acceptance of personal choices, and deconstruction of gender roles and stereotypes without engaging in pseudoscience.The trouble with this argument, I think, is that it doesn’t reflect the experience of most gay people. We do not “choose” our orientation. That is the key point — whether that lack of choice is due to biology or early childhood or something else is irrelevant. And genuinely trans people do not choose to be trans either. It’s a profound disjunction between the sex they feel they are and the sex they actually are. It also may be caused by any number of things. But it is involuntary.The queer left rejects this view entirely — because, in their view, there is no underlying reality to human beings, biological or psychological. It’s all about “narratives” driven by “systems of power,” and being gay or trans is infinitely malleable. That’s why they continuously use a slur word for gays — “queer” — to deconstruct homosexuality itself, and turn it merely into one of many ways in which to dismantle liberal society. I regard the “queer left” as dangerous as the far right in its belief that involuntary homosexual orientation doesn’t exist. Lastly, a listener “would like to make a couple of suggestions for Dishcast guests”:1) Razib Khan — he has been blogging for 20 years on genetics, particularly ancient population movements (e.g. Denisovans and Yamnaya). His Unsupervised Learning is currently the second-highest-paid science substack after Scott Alexander. To give you a flavour, his post on the genetic history of Ashkenazi Jews was very popular. Khan also does culture war stuff, mostly because he is a scientist and believes in truth and science. He has subsequently been the subject of controversy, as you can see from his Wikipedia page — which isn’t really fair, but gives you a flavor. His post “Applying IQ to IQ: Selecting for smarts is important” is the kind of thing that gets him in trouble. He is my favourite public intellectual, in large part because he combines actual hardcore science information with anti-woke skepticism. And he is just generally a very smart and interesting guy. Though I’m a fan of his substack, I’d like to hear him on your podcast because I’d like to find out more about Razib as a person, how he feels about the controversies, etc.2) Claire Fox — Baroness Fox of Buckley — is a former communist turned libertarian and Brexiteer, once a member of European Parliament and now a life peer in the House of Lords. Her Twitter feed gives a pretty good idea of her interests and views. Here are some clips on cancel culture in higher education; single-sex spaces for women; and a libertarian view on smoking. She broadly belongs to the British “TERF island” of gender-critical feminists. I know you’ve had Kathleen Stock on your podcast already, but Fox’s background, libertarian views and current membership in the House of Lords make her particularly interesting.I know Razib and deeply admire him and his intellectual courage. And it’s true that, in real life, he’s a hoot, a lively conversationalist, with an amazing life story. Because of his views about the science of genetics and human populations, he is, of course, anathema to the woke left. One good reason to invite him on.

Today, Debbie talks to writer and novelist Hilma Wolitzer, age 92. She's just published a new book of short stories titled "Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket." So yes, this is someone who is "making the most of growing older."Hilma's stories of sharply observed domestic life were published in the Saturday Evening Post and Esquire in the 1960s and 1970s. She has taught writing at the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, the Iowa Writers' Workshop, NYU, and Columbia. She's also the author of nine novels and the recipient of national awards and fellowships.Her husband of almost 70 years died of COVID in the first months of the pandemic. It was as if he vanished, she told Debbie.She and her husband Morty both got Covid in April of 2020. They were taken to separate hospitals in New York City.She never got to say good-bye.He died two days before she was released from the hospital and went home to her apartment.As she tells Debbie on the podcast:"There were his slippers next to the bed. There was a pair of his drugstore eyeglasses. He seemed to have vanished and that was the sense I tried to depict in (the final) story (of her new book). Disappearance rather than dying." She was encouraged to write through her grief, and to write this story and add it to a new collection, by her daughters: New York Times bestselling novelist Meg Wolitzer and artist Nancy Wolitzer.She titled the new story, "The Great Escape." It is as diamond sharp and perfect - and funny - as her earlier writing. There's even sex.

For Tony Reid, this case began as a claim of innocence in the murder of Donna Jo Richmond in 1975. While the errors in the original investigation and a flawed trial resulted in a guilty verdict, the reassessment confirmed that the defendant was framed but the question became: by whom? Working with a new team of investigators, which included two of the original detectives, the probe uncovered a startling new possibility: Was the real culprit a serial offender?Turning to the public for information, Mr. Reid created the 12/26/75 podcast. Based on primary evidence and new interviews surrounding the murder of Donna Jo on that date in Exeter, California, the team re-examined every possibility. The investigators soon found something more than a terribly failed verdict. They discovered connections to the unsolved murders of Jennifer Armour and Claude Snelling—and links to The East Area Rapist. They uncovered shocking corruption by the original lead investigator who illegally destroyed trial evidence and looked into the unexplained death of the original defense attorney. This pursuit led them right back to Exeter, where a new suspect in these murders emerged: Joseph DeAngelo, who was then a full-time sergeant with the local police department, the officer in charge of violent crimes and burglary investigations.This book is more than an adaptation of the 12/26/75 podcast. It shares new insight formed during the investigation and provides a first-hand look at the Tulare crimes, as well as exposing the faulty evidence used to obtain and maintain the false conviction. More than anything else, 12/26/75 demonstrates the enormous consequences of letting a serial killer go free, made worse when combined with the painful mistakes, in-fighting, and finger-pointing by certain jurisdictions. The catastrophic results are undeniable. Now that the mystery of how it all unfolded is revealed, we can also begin to examine the reforms necessary to prevent this tragedy from happening again. 12/26/75-Tony Reid
