You Might Know Her From

Oh what a beautiful morning because we are here with actor, singer, and three-time Tony-nominee, Mary Testa. You Might Know Her From Whoopi, Sex and the City, The Bounty Hunter, and the New York stage productions of Queen of the Mist,  Xanadu, 42nd Street, Barnum, On the Town, The Rink, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and Oklahoma. Mary gave us all the goods on developing Xanadu, and how it found its way to Broadway, accepting the role of Aunt Eller while Sally Struthers was watching the Golden Globes in her living room, and iconically covering for Liza Minnelli in The Rink opposite Chita Rivera. We also got into the collaborative relationship she has with Michael John La Chuisa and the significance of headlining Queen of the Mist. All that plus Mary took all (and we mean all) our hot gossip questions about 42nd Street, taking over for Terri White, and whether or not Jennifer Aniston did coverage!

Over the last few years I've seen a greater amount of focus on how much meat we consume as a society—and what the environmental impacts of all that consumption are.Because of that, we wanted to turn to George Peppou. George is co-founder and CEO of food-tech startup, Vow, which aims to produce meat that is better than the meat we eat today, creating tantalizing and unique culinary experiences. Vow does this by culturing the cells of animals, from both species we eat today and those we could never farm, creating a range of cell ingredients which can be turned into a wide variety of products – all produced using the same manufacturing process. George began his career as a chef while studying biochemistry at the University of Sydney. George is a serial entrepreneur and inventor, with over 30 patents granted.We discuss cultured meat, the benefits of cell-grown meat, what's going to happen to this market longterm, and the regulatory problems that govern this emerging market.As always, we welcome your feedback.

Sarah Edmondson was a young actress pursuing a career in film and television, when she hit a low point and was hoping to find a new purpose in life. She ran into renowned filmmaker, Mark Vicente, who spoke to her about NXIVM and eventually brought her into the organization. There she started following Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman's mission. They encouraged Sarah to give her all. In part 1 of 2, we learn about how NXIVM's leadership undermined its followers and groomed them in such a conniving way, that no one knew what was happening to them. Sarah grew close to many members of the organization - which later turned out to be a cult, and even rose up in leadership.

You may recognize Sarah Edmondson and Anthony ‘Nippy' Ames from the critically-acclaimed HBO docu-series, The Vow. Sarah & Nippy left a self-development organization known as NXIVM in 2017, and they were immediately thrust into the spotlight, working alongside a handful of other whistleblowers to bring NXIVM's leader, Keith Raniere, to justice. In this episode, Sarah and Nippy speak candidly about the NXIVM curriculum, where it came from (really), what they thought it was, and how it was eventually weaponized against them. Nippy shares his take on NXIVM's ‘exploration of meaning' exercise, and Sarah shares how - despite the early benefits of EMing - the technique was eventually used to coerce her into getting a ‘sisterhood' brand on her body. Candice shares how much she can relate to the mindfuckery of always “being at-cause” and how she's still unraveling it after 16 years. Nippy elaborates, speaking to how this no-victim mentality feeds shame - which is then leveraged to keep people from leaving or speaking out. Sarah breaks down NXIVM's Stripe Path - which is uncannily similar to ‘the Org' hierarchy - and then shares about a moment when Keith Raniere revealed the truth aloud to her - referring to it as something meant to offer "the illusion of hope." Nippy gets uber-honest about the anger he felt when he learned his wife had been branded, and Sarah shares openly about her lingering PTSD and how it's impacted her most intimate relationships. The episode wraps with a disarming response to folks who only want to ‘focus on the good.' Listen in for a crash course in self-development-cult survivorship.[CW:  This episode contains brief reference to physical and sexual coercion.] Sarah Edmondson (@sarahedmondson) and Anthony “Nippy” Ames (@anthonyames11) are NXIVM survivors who co-host the A Little Bit Culty podcast where they talk about things that are... a little bit culty. Or in their case: a whole bunch of culty. As whistleblowers documented in the critically-acclaimed HBO series “The Vow,” Sarah and Nippy have a lot to say about their experience, and burning questions to ask people with similar stories. They're here to help people understand, heal from, and avoid abusive situations one little red flag at a time.

S Second chances  Work and home In the area of work, I've shared with you all how I spent this past year in receiving correction at work and how I received a second chance. Fortunately God worked through me to humble myself, receive the correction, make improvements, and I've ended up a better worker and better at what I do than before, and that has been validated by the same people who were earlier being critical of me.  At the same time I've been appreciating my job more than ever before. Here are some random thoughts I have on this topic. It's easy to look back on past events and have a good perspective on this issue of receiving correction and having second chances, it's harder when you're in the middle of it, but that is when your attitude matters the most since it impacts the choices you make in response. How to respond: gratitude and make the most of it  Pay it forward by giving others second chances.  This reminds me of what we have called the parable of the unforgiving servant which is found in the 18th chapter of Matthew.  Peter asks Jesus, or Yeshua, how often he should forgive his brother who sins against him, up to 7 times?  Yeshua replies that he should forgive seventy times seven, which I've heard taught means an unlimited number of times, though I recently heard an alternate explanation of the significance of the seventy times seven, but I'll leave that for another discussion.  Yeshua then goes on to tell a parable about the Kingdom of heaven where a king wants to settle accounts with his servants.  After one servant who owed a huge amount begs for mercy the king forgives his debt.  The king later finds out that the same servant was unmerciful to someone who owed him a relatively small amount and the king then delivered the servant to the torturers until his large debt was paid. As believers and followers of Yeshua, we know that his sacrifice on the cross and resurrection paid for the infinitely great debt of our sin, and that among other responses ours should be gratitude and to show great mercy to those in our lives, regardless of their sin toward us, owe us a relatively minor debt. Regardless what specific second chances you've received in your life, if you're a believer in Yeshua, you have received the ultimate forgiveness of debt and as such we should show the greatest possible mercy to others in our lives. While it's easy to focus on a particular, significant event in our lives, I believe this concept of second chances is more appropriately thought about as a journey than a one-time event. While we are alive, we will always have challenges, we'll always have sin in our lives that we need to confess and repent of, we'll always need forgiveness and we'll always need to forgive others. Learn from it - don't forget!!!  This is different than dwelling on the past, but rather in a positive way take the lessons from the past mistakes and apply them to your current and future choices. Avoiding second chances is better.  Recently, when I was talking to another brother about something in my life I had said sorry for and it wasn't the first time.  He asked me how many times I had said sorry, and I replied more than I could count.  While it's good to be genuinely sorry and to say so, it's much better to avoid the need to say you're sorry and thus avoiding the need to get a second chance, or in reality we're talking here not about second but third, fourth, and fifth chances.  If you're into golf, you might like this analogy.  A mulligan is different than a handicap, it's not a pass it's another chance and requires effort, more effort or a better effort than what was made the first time.  Even if at your work or in your personal you're forgiven, or given a pass (kind of like being given a handicap or an automatic reduction in your golf score), you should treat it as if it's a mulligan and needs to be corrected either to prevent it from happening again or out of sense of integrity, love, or justice (whichever applies). This may sound a bit like the difference between law and grace.  I don't believe grace has been properly defined and understood in the church but I'll save that for another discussion since I'm still working through that theological concept, but I believe John 14:15 applies well here "If you love me keep my commandments".  If if we're saved and forgiven for our sins, out of our love for our Savior we should treat it like a mulligan not a handicap, and choose to obey and correct what we've done wrong, and do things His way as He has told us is His preference. Just watched a movie on Amazon Prime called The Vow and here's a spoiler alert.  A couple gets married and is very happy.  The wife gets in an accident and as a result loses all her memory of the period of time during which her husband and her met, fell in love, and married.  The husband struggles with the loss of his wife's love for her and tries his best to recreate her love for him.  In her mind, she is not the same person she was when they first met and they ultimately divorce.  Over time, though, she comes to love him and they end up together though in a different way and a different love than they had before. THis makes me think that when we're given a second chance at work or at home, the correct response may not be just to recreate what we think worked in the past, but we may need to assess what is true about our current reality and what changes do we need to make in our way of thinking and our actions to meet the need that is present.  It may be that our poor choices created a different dynamic that requires us to get out of our comfort zone and change and adapt.  I know that may sound a bit abstract but I'm praying this thought I had may be what you need and that God speaks to you in how you need to apply it to your situation. This whole idea of getting a second chance makes me think of the larger concept of free will vs. God's sovereignty.  I heard a great message from Pastor Julio Calderon from the Mikdash Congregation this past Shabbat on that topic and here are some of his thoughts on this issue, paraphrased by me: "As with Joseph in prison, the best of us will come from difficult situations, God does not enjoy taking us into bad situations, but we sometimes make bad decisions which He does not approve of (e.g. the brothers decision to throw Joseph in a hole and them sell him as a slave), but Yah will use these bad decisions for good.  If not He is not sovereign. This frustrates Satan. "Story of woman praying for food and witch giving bread and saying it was from Satan, woman thanking the LORD that even the evil one obeys Him".  Big question: how much free will do we have? How do we believe both in divine intervention and free will? No perfect answer but imperfect answers are that only God knows how they mesh together, and that God only sometimes intervenes to accomplish his purposes, both are common explanations and both are imperfect. In the end God always wins, and if He wins, we win Goliath made David great, he made the best that was in David come out  The movie of our life is not over yet but it has a happy ending. Perhaps the most relevant scripture for this is one we probably are all familiar with, Romans 8:28-29"28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren"                                       L   From Patrick Morley video 4 in man in the mirror  dealt with the issue of purpose which all of us men struggle with at some level He asked "If who I am is what I do, what will I be when I don't do what I do?" Who am I? A disciple in Christ  Why do I exist? To abide, love and serve John 8:31 "Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed" John 13:34-35 "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 15:5-"“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing"    A  For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. 1 Peter 2:19-20 https://www.patreon.com/christianmenatwork https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/christianmenatwork H Dad jokes from Country Living website:   "How does a taco say grace?"

Happy 2023 Friends! So happy to jump back in with words to motivate our year. We often hear about seeing our cups half full, but today, we're seeing our cups overflow. As we declare, receive and walk in abundance, abundance begins to overflow from within us, through us and all around us. As we allow thoughts of overflow to sink in our minds, doubts begin to drift away, and the wealth we carry within washes over us. Right now, let's take a few moments to meditate on the overflow of abundance, joy, love, peace and gratitude that is always at hand, and in our hearts. Here are vows to invite overflow.   Created, written + voiced by Mel Chanté for Vow to Self. Join our newsletter: Vow to Self Newsletter. Listen to Mel Chanté's music on all platforms.

With a Broadway career spanning over 50 years, Tovah Feldshuh takes us through her journey as she shares her life as an actress, wife, and mother. While she loves politics, it's her love of people that motivates her to fight for what she believes in and help in every way that she can. Initially determined to go to Harvard Law School to stay close to her father, her brother encouraged her to apply for the McKnight Fellowship in acting and was eventually chosen as one of the four to attend the fellowship. This trajectory change was the beginning of Tovah's pursuit of becoming an actor, which to her is "so much cheaper than therapy". Tovah talks about her role as Mrs. Brice in "Funny Girl" and bringing a level of humanity and relatability to her character, and her memoir, “Lilyville: Mother, Daughter, and Other Roles I've Played” which explores mother-daughter relationships, and her complex relationship with her mother. Married for 46 years, she shares what makes their marriage work. Tovah intends to keep acting for as long as she can, mainly motivated by her love of people and making connections. Tovah Feldshuh is an actress, singer, and playwright who's been a Broadway star for more than four decades now, which earned her Tony Award nominations and two Emmy Award nominations. She made her Broadway debut in the 1973 musical "Cyrrano". Her other stage credits include "Saravá", "Lend Me a Tenor", "Golda's Balcony", “Dreyfus in Rehearsal”, “Lend Me a Tenor”, “Golda's Balcony”, "Irena's Vow", "Pippin", and "Yentl". She made her cabaret debut with her act, "Tovah: Crossovah! From Broadway to Cabaret", followed by "Tovah: Out of Her Mind!" and was selected as Best Cabaret Artist of 2000 by the Boston Globe. Tovah has also appeared in numerous tv shows, including "Ryan's Hope", "Holocaust", "Mariah", "As the World Turns", "Law & Order", "Flesh and Bone", "The Walking Dead", "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend", and "Star Wars Resistance". Her film credits include "Kissing Jessica Stein", "Just My Luck", "She's Funny That Way", and "Armageddon Time". Tovah is currently playing Mrs. Brice in the Broadway revival of "Funny Girl", and is the author of the memoir, “Lilyville: Mother, Daughter, and Other Roles I've Played”.

Crime Writers On...True Crime Review

Facing federal charges that included establishing a sex cult and branding his female followers, NXIVM leader Keith Raniere prepares for trial. Meanwhile his second-in-command, Nancy Salzman, breaks her silence to say she didn't know the darker things happening within the organization. Prosecutors lay out a strong case of racketeering and trafficking against Raniere. His attorney and his remaining followers proclaim Raniere's innocence, saying life in NXIVM is not the cult portrayed in the media.HBO's “The Vow, Part Two” picks up the story as Raniere's trial begins. The focus moves away from his disaffected followers and reveals new details about the crimes and victims of the DOS program. Its sweeping access includes a comprehensive profile of Salzman as she awaited sentencing for racketeering.OUR SPOILER-FREE REVIEWS OF "THE VOW, PART TWO" BEGIN IN THE FINAL 8 MINUTES OF THE EPISODE.

In the words of one cookie-loving mouse… “The bitch is back.” Pat Regan returns to Las Cultch bearing a newfound obsession with breaking the fourth wall and telling people their FYP is showing. Matt comes in to infect the masses with Meghan Trainor's latest hooks, and Bowen asks a most pressing question in the culture: Who is mother for this? Stick around for asides on Housewives interactions, The White Lotus, and the concept of using acting to win a competition. And you better believe we draw similarities between Robyn Dixon and Nancy Salzman. Rule Number Culture: We made you look!

"Powerful" is a word that one could use to describe this episode of Las Culturistas, in which Matt & Bowen are finally joined by Bitch Sesh's gorgeous duo Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider to touch grass, praise Mandy Moore, speak on forgiveness and vulnerability in a very Brene manner and ruminate on the concept of "hope". Also, all things RHOBH, RHOSLC, RHOP. Kathy Hilton: what's the deal there? Which of the franchises is the *darkest*? Is it better to interact with Housewives in the wild or simply not think of them as human? All this, OG soap operas, female character actresses living out loud, White Lotus season 2, The Vow season 2, The Mole, and more. Do you think psychics and mediums are to be believed? Do you want to see another trip where the Housewives ski? Would you use a gift certificate from a dog therapist to see a wizard? So many questions. *Some* answers. ALL fun.
