(INTRO MUSIC) NARRATOR Y2K Take 2. Bonus episode 2. Selected LiveJournal entries written by Katarina Fischer from 2000 to 2002. Scene B2:1 NARRATOR February, 2000. (Typing on 00s laptop, fades out after about two words) KATARINA I keep thinking about J. It is rare for me to be so attracted to someone. And yet a relationship between us would not be a good idea. He would try to dominate and I would alternate between stubbornly dominating back and sulkily surrendering. We'd have huge, unpleasant arguments and I'd end up witha crushed sense of self-worth. Not good. (sighs) He really is a lovely generous person but his ego is enormous. (‘enter' key sound) Scene B2:2 NARRATOR March, 2000. (Typing on 00s laptop, fades out after about two words) KATARINA ...and then he said something patronizing and condescending and I left rather than snapping. On the bus on the way home I thought about what kind of person he is. He is intelligent, generous, social and popular... But he's also self-centered, and he has no social antennae. Doesn't pay enough attention to other people to develop any. And it really bothers me that he keeps saying I'm so... bad. I don't quite know what he is picking up on, but it's not a response I've had before. (beat) I stand up to him. Maybe he's not used to that. (thinks) And he puts down my taste in music and plays and everything. Proclaiming his taste superior in every way. He is so annoying! (‘enter' key sound) Scene B2:3 NARRATOR July, 2000. (Typing on 00s laptop, fades out after about two words) KATARINA (has cried for days and has no tears left) Oh fuck. I can't... I can't write about this. I mean, what would I say? It happened. It is over. The dream is in pieces, shattered all over the floor. Can I pick the pieces up and put them back together? (beat) I don't know. Feel like I'll never be whole again. (beat) J is... He tries. And I'm sure he mourns, too, in his way. But still. It's like the grief is all mine, it was my body that failed, and I... I want to punish it. I want to punish my useless body and I don't know how. Everyone keeps telling me to eat, and rest, and take care of myself... I don't want to do any of that. I don't *deserve* any of that. My body failed me, failed my (voice breaks) child, and I hate it. (‘enter' key sound) Scene B2:4 NARRATOR August, 2000. (Typing on 00s laptop, fades out after about two words) KATARINA I always used to say if anyone ever uses physical violence against me, I am gone. Leaving. I cannot let anyone do that to me. Ever. I wanted to hold onto that, but... (long pause) Then it got all muddled. He's promised never to do it again. And I hit him, too, a while back. Didn't mean to, of course. But the fact remains. I did hit him. (beat) And he forgave me. So I owe it to him to forgive him too. (sigh) Working on that. (‘enter' key sound) Scene B2:5 NARRATOR November, 2000. (Typing on 00s laptop, fades out after about two words) KATARINA (very tired and disconnected, slowly) I thought My thoughts Were mine alone Turns out I thought All wrong (deep sigh) (‘enter' key sound) Scene B2:6 NARRATOR January, 2001. (Typing on 00s laptop, fades out after about two words) KATARINA (very, very sad) I want myself back. Whole. (beat) I feel broken. He hacked and carved in me to shape me to his liking and the blood is still seeping. It pools around my feet along with the unwanted parts of me that he chopped off. How am I supposed to put myself together again? (beat) So helpless. So mutilated. (‘enter' key sound) Scene B2:7 NARRATOR February, 2001. (Typing on 00s laptop, fades out after about two words) KATARINA (like she's about to throw something, or punch someone) Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Why do I care that he's found someone else? I hate him. (long pause, sighs, calmer) And that's the explanation I suppose. I am not yet indifferent toward him. He still has power over me. Power he does not deserve. That I do not want to give him. Power that he took a year ago and hasn't given back. (beat) He had no respect for me. Who and what I was did not matter. I was to be squeezed into his perfect girlfriend mold and be happy about it. (beat, more forceful) I feel like I should warn her. That I should have branded his forehead for all to see. With a scarlet letter A for Abuser... (lets out breath) But I don't know how. She probably wouldn't listen. (beat) Someone tried to pass on a warning from his ex, after all, and I didn't listen. Hell, his ex tried to warn me herself, in a way, and I was completely oblivious. (beat) I want to save her but... I don't know how. (‘enter' key sound) Scene B2:8 NARRATOR April, 2001. (Typing on 00s laptop, fades out after about two words) KATARINA Kazakhstan is beautiful. The landscape... There are no words. Been here a month now and am slowly feeling like I am getting the hang of things. The first few weeks were a blur. Constant stream of new people and new challenges. (small snort) And so many hours on horseback. I just fell into bed every night. No time to think. Didn't even dream, at least not that I remember. I think... It's been good. Going far away. No chance of accidentally meeting J and his new girlfriend somewhere. Ugh. The ‘new girlfriend' part still hurts. How could he move on so quickly? He said I was ‘the best girlfriend he'd ever had'. That what we had was special. (beat) I suppose this is a question that answers itself. It wasn't special. (beat) *I* wasn't special. I was replaceable. Easily replaceable. And that still hurts. A lot. But being here helps. And the work... I don't know if I will ever get a chance like this again, but the work is (awed) exhilarating. I am giving it everything I have. And I hope that is enough so that I get to do it again. Because, this? It is everything I ever wanted. (‘enter' key sound) Scene B2:9 NARRATOR April, 2002. (Typing on 00s laptop, fades out after about two words) KATARINA (smiles) Been so long since I wrote anything here. Probably no-one reads it, anyway. (slight laugh) They might, if they connected it to my... work, I suppose. But I've made sure to erase all connections. (beat) I found out today that J's latest girlfriend dumped him. (smiles) E told me, apparently she ran into them down the pub the other week. And E decided to call him out for his behavior toward me. I wish I could have been there! I am sure she was magnificent. (beat) The new girl overheard some of E:s rant and seems to have had second thoughts. I am so glad she got away, and I will just admit that I am (beat) happy he was hurt and humiliated. I may be mostly over him, but what he did to me... It was not OK. I am still not fully healed. Maybe I never will be. And while I hope he learns from this, and changes his behavior, I don't think he will. Don't think he can. So I will continue to quietly celebrate when I hear of another girl escaping his clutches. Another girl surviving. Maybe we should all form a secret society. The I-survived-J-club. (small laugh) This latest girl can be president. I admire her... (small sigh) Fantasy aside. Haven't really made time for romance since J – work has been my boyfriend, I suppose – but I've been eyeing this steady-cam guy for a few weeks now. (smiles) Feels like he's been eyeing me back. Excited to see where this goes... (‘enter' key sound) Scene B2:10 NARRATOR Thank you for listening to this bonus episode of Y2K: Take 2.

Being John Malkovich may well be the 1999est movie we have yet covered on the show. And the only reason it didn't make it into the first nine (and just barely) is that 1) it really took some time to fully sink in to the culture, sort of like Fight Club, and 2) unlike Fight Club, it has largely been marginalized in recent years, due in no small part to the successive work of both Jonze and Kaufman, who produced films that would go on to greater critical and commercial success than this one did. But it explores many of the same issues that films like The Matrix and Fight Club explore, though with a much more insane glee than those films. And it comes across as the kind of movie that could only hit theaters during the year of Y2K end-times paranoia, when the whole culture sort of shared and “I dunno, fuck it!” kind of attitude. It also happens to be previous guest Brian Silliman's favorite 1999 movie, so John and Joey asked him back to take a little trip through the tunnel on floor seven-and-a-half to get inside the mind Malkovich and talk about this brilliant, groundbreaking classic.

Follow @TexasNursesAssn Welcome back to season two of #TexasNursesPod! Host Chasity sits down with one of this year's honorees for the Leaders & Legends of Texas Nursing award! “It's a great time to be a nurse!” K. Lynn Wieck, Ph.D., RN is an author, nursing educator, former TNA President, former TNA Vice President, and former TNA Board of Directors member. She coined this catchphrase to encourage nurses during a time of uncertainty at the turn of the century. The goal was increasing optimism in the face of layoffs and Y2K fears, and later in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and the beginning of the Iraq War. Dr. Wick led TNA as president from 2000 to 2005 and was a vital part of collaborating with the American Nurses Association and other states after the attacks to be better prepared to care for Texans and other Americans in the case of another terrorist attack or natural disaster. She considers one of the greatest highlights of her career to be the outreach clinic she developed in downtown Houston called Project Capable, which provided free healthcare services to older Latina patients, taking students along with her to train and assist. As nurses established themselves as the country's most trusted profession, Dr. Wieck continued to turn to her mantra to encourage nurses to become TNA members, so that they could help advance the profession by having a voice in the political arena.

Today I am joined by Kelly Weill, reporter at The Daily Beast on the fringe ideology beat and author of the book Off the Edge: Flat Earthers, Conspiracy Culture, and Why People Will Believe Anything. Ms. Weill, thanks so much for coming on the show. Kelly Weill: Hey, thank you so much for having me. Mike: So now when I finished the book, I DM'd you to tell you that you're absolutely brilliant. And the reason why is your intentional approach when it comes to being a conduit of misinformation. You're very careful in how you reference your source material so as not to lead readers to it. Can you talk a little bit about your methodology a bit and how you dealt with your sources? Kelly: Yeah, absolutely. It's weird dealing with somebody like flat earth, which is objectively wrong, right? When you're talking about that subject, you already kind of risk platforming that conspiracy theory as if there's any validity to it. So one thing that I tried to do throughout the course of my reporting and then to replicate as I was writing this book, was not to really engage with flat Earth as though it were a legitimate theory. And I kind of had it easy there. If I were doing something like medical misinformation, I would have probably had to get in the weeds a little bit more. But as far as flat earth goes, I would go to these conferences and when I was interviewing people, I'd be really straightforward. I'd be like, "Hey yo, I'm not I'm not a flat earther. I'm a reporter; I believe in the globe. But let's talk about why you believe this thing." And for me, that was a bit more interesting than the details of what exactly they believed because flat earth is wrong, but I wanted to come to why they bought into a theory that's so wrong. And when we had those conversations about their pathways to belief, that turned out to be a lot more interesting to me than just the zaniness of this theory. Mike: Okay, and we'll get into that soon. I want to talk about some things I learned. So the first thing I learned from your book is that flat earth theory is actually not that old? Like, there were cultures that believed in a flat earth, but there wasn't the sort of pseudoscientific theory to justify it. So, when does the story of the flat earth movement start? Kelly: Yeah, totally. This is a bit of a misconception actually. I know when I was a kid I thought that there was, you know, Columbus thought he might have been sailing off the edge of the world. That's not true at all. We've known for thousands of years that earth was round because you can prove it with some pretty basic math. It's something that we've been able to do long before we could physically observe the shape of the Earth. But where flat earth theory actually comes back in is in England in around 1840. And that's when we have a guy named Samuel Rowbotham. He's a really interesting guy. He was a failed leader of a socialist commune; he had his hands on all kinds of short-lived fringe movements. I had a great time going through, you know, pre-Marxist socialist newspapers to find out what he was up to. But one of his career trajectories that didn't fail had to do with misinformation. He sold fake miracle cures, sort of a proto-Alex Jones. And he started shelling this idea that maybe earth was flat. And that idea was really alluring to certain people in that moment because, around mid-1800s, we're talking about a time when the natural sciences are taking on more and more of a role in the discourse and the importance of things like religion are taking more of a backseat. So when a theory like flat Earth comes out, it allows people to discard huge swathes of science and say, "Oh, I knew it was wrong all along. Oh, the scientists are all in league with each other to keep us in the dark." So as baffling and unscientific as flat earth was, even back then, it really did allow people to affirm their priors, to cast out information they didn't want to believe in, and sort of reshape their beliefs around this new and creative and just wholly counterfactual idea. Mike: It just blew me away that Rowbotham had no predecessors whatsoever, he just kind of built this out of whole cloth, just him in the Bible. So how did flat Earth stick around? Kelly: It stuck around because he had cronies just like any conspiracy influencer we have today. You know, I've just a couple of minutes ago compared Rowbotham to Alex Jones. He had his entourage, the people who might be like Owen Shroyers of the movement, who were even louder and a bit more virulent in their dissemination of these theories. These were the people who– He had a follower named John Hampden who just reminds me so much of one of these guys who goes on YouTube and is like, "Debate me. Debate me." And he would lure actual scientific professionals into these stupid, pointless debates over established science about the shape of the world. But because he was just so tenacious and he wouldn't admit that he had lost a bet about a scientific wager and he would go to jail because he was harassing people about the shape of the world, you know, that emotional appeal, it continued to resonate with people throughout the years. And even though flat earth has ebbed and flowed a little bit in popularity, just the wildness of it, I think ,has always had an appeal for certain people who are looking for it. Mike: So, one thing I was surprised about was that the flat earth movement was rather a latecomer, as far as conspiracy theories go, to the internet. So, what brought the flat earth online? How was it received? Kelly: Yeah, that was really interesting to me, too. Because while I was researching this, I was kind of trawling through OG conspiracy pages online. What's interesting to me actually if I might take a step back here is that conspiracy theories have always been early adopters of a lot of technology. You know, Rowbotham had a friend who was running a printing press, and he was getting his flat earth zines out. There was a flat earth commune in the early 20th century, and they had one of the earliest powerful radio programs that they could broadcast along the way. So when I was looking at early internet conspiracy theories, I did find that conspiracy theorists were some of the first voices online who were really putting out weird information. So I was deep in the trenches looking at Y2K influencers and all that. But there actually, to your point, was sort of a lack of flat earth theory early on in the internet. And I can think of a few reasons for that. For a while, flat earth theory was very tied to the Flat Earth Society, which was shepherded until 2001 by this very elderly couple. They were super literally off the grid. They lived in the desert, and they just were not the type of people to get online. And a lot of their archives actually burned in a house fire. So flat Earth really kind of took a nosedive with their deaths. It came back online when some archivalist started going through those older records of this Flat Earth Society couple. And these people relaunched the Flat Earth Society online as a forum, a discussion place where people could talk. It's interesting to me. I am not completely sold on the idea that the people who relaunched the Flat Earth Society online were genuine. I think there's a reasonable chance that they're kind of fucking around like they thought it was funny. But they did resurface this huge archive of decades and decades of flat earth writings and they put them online. And that became, I think, the basis for a lot of more genuine believers to start going through the back catalog and seeing what flat earthers had been saying for the past 150 years. And eventually, it went from this sort of more moderate discussion on forums to things that could go a lot more viral with the advent of sites like YouTube. Mike: Okay so let's talk about the algorithm. How did flat earth wind up profiting from the YouTube recommendation algorithm? Kelly: Yeah, this was huge. And throughout this book, I wanted to be careful about ascribing flat earth's resurgence to any one thing, you know, any one website or any one algorithm. That said, YouTube has a lot of blood on its hands as far as flat earth goes. Basically, for quite a long time YouTube's algorithm would promote videos that it thought people would want to watch. It actually still does this, but they've done tweaks that hamper flat earth, I'll get to that in a minute. But basically, what people really want to watch, what people really want to click on at two in the morning, is not necessarily factual information. It's not really the “Eat Your Vegetables” kind of video. It's the weird scintillating stuff. If you see a video in your sidebar, a recommended video on YouTube and it says, "Is earth really flat?" Yeah, you're gonna click on that because it's just so weird you have to find out what that video is about. Because those videos performed so well, because they tapped into this curiosity and this weird factor, they started overperforming in the algorithm, and they appear to have been promoted overwhelmingly. So conspiracy YouTubers would realize that, "Hey, I can get a lot of views by having a title that references flat earth.” So from a confluence of people making flat earth videos because they're being cynical, because they knew it would get a lot of views, and people who are actually starting to get earnestly converted from these videos going and putting their genuine beliefs in these new channels, we started seeing this huge swell of flat earth videos and a pretty powerful recommendation algorithm that gave those videos a disproportionate share of traffic. I do want to note that YouTube kind of acknowledged this and changed its algorithm in 2019 specifically so that flat earth would not be such an issue. Mike: One thing you didn't draw a comparison to, or maybe I missed it, and I'm about to regurgitate one of your points, was to multilevel marketing. Like, these YouTubers are not just looking for converts to watch their videos, so that they can get monetized ads or whatever; they want converts to make videos themselves and then reference their videos so that they can get traffic that way. Can you talk a little about the culture of the flat earth movement on YouTube? Kelly: Absolutely. I think the multi-level marketing comparison is such an apt one, and I'm actually kind of mad that I don't make it in the book, because it's relevant. And you bring that up. But literally the first Flat Earth conference I went to, this one flat earth celebrity YouTuber came up to me and she started talking to me. She goes, "Oh, I didn't realize you are a reporter. I was gonna say you should maybe make some videos about flat earth." Because she thought I was there and I was being genuine and... I'm gonna say something really mean. A lot of flat Earthers are kind of like boomer men that you don't want to watch a video of. And I was a 24-year-old woman so I think that was what was going on. [laughs] But to that end, yeah, flat earthers don't just want to preach; they want to convert. And they want to build this community around themselves and around their videos because that's what keeps the theory going. Flat earth in and of itself could just be a set of talking points that you accept, and then you move on with your life. But for a lot of flat earthers, it becomes a way of life. It becomes a community that they build, and frankly, a set of relationships that they cling to because they often have deteriorating relationships with the rest of the world when they convert to this theory. So there's a very strong community basis in flat earth and other conspiracy theories. And I definitely think that flat earth YouTubers are often trying to make more flat earth YouTubers, and they're trying to promote a community that will further promote their videos. Mike: Okay. So another thing I liked about the book was the way you brought human dignity to a lot of the people you talked about (not so much the cult leaders and grifters, but just kind of average people). Can you talk a bit about the people you met during your reporting and some of their backgrounds? Kelly: Absolutely. I mean, there's no one profile for a flat earther. I know I just said a lot of them are kind of boomer guys. And maybe the average flat earther is a little bit older. But there's a surprising diversity in how people come to flat earth. When I was talking to people, I was trying to get a sense of, you know, “what were their priors?” Initially at the first flat earth conference, I went and started asking people about their political beliefs. And I found that although this movement does skew conservative, a lot of people were very disenchanted with politics and they didn't really affix themselves to a tidy political profile. So what I started doing was looking into that disaffectation. Why were people dissatisfied? Why were people looking for such a radical alternative explanation for the world? And I found quite a lot of pathways to flat earth. A lot of them are fairly upsetting; a lot of them had to do with people who were looking for new forms of community because they felt alienated in some sense, people who were looking for religious alternatives, a lot of people who came from faith traditions where they didn't fully feel like they were getting the right answers. So when I was talking to people, I think I was in a certain sense maybe trying to diagnose what exactly had gone a little bit wrong to lead them to this movement. And I found the people who were actually quite forthcoming with me, were quite generous in explaining their path to flat earth. So that's something I tried to do regardless of, you know, if somebody told me they were a Trump supporter or an Obama fan who had completely fallen out of political circles. I just tried to try and keep an eye on that human element. Mike: Okay. You have this chapter, Alone in a Flat World, where you talk about people losing their social lives to flat earth. This seems to play into this 21st-century decentralized cult phenomenon. You talk a lot about QAnon too, which is similar. So there are flat earth organizations, but apart from getting high-rolling flat earthers to a conference once a year, they don't really hold on to the movement. That's coming from the YouTube culture. Kelly: Yeah, absolutely. I think a decentralized cult is a really interesting way of thinking about flat earth and frankly a lot of other conspiracy communities. It's hard to strictly call it a cult because there's no one leader, there's no one person they take marching orders from. And yet it has a lot of the hallmarks of a cult. There's a central idea that you have to adhere to and block out all the other noise. You have to distance yourself from people who criticize this idea. It's a very in-group out-group affirming structure. And it's interesting when I started looking at that model for flat earth, it was pretty easy to apply to a lot of other fringe movements and frankly some not-so-fringe movements. I thought it was really interesting to apply to Trumpism, and I know that sounds like a very Twitter-lib talking point saying, “Oh Trump is a cult leader.” But in the more maybe psychological aspect of it, where you do think about people's willingness to create this community around a central figure or central idea at the expense of the rest of their entire world. I think that was really interesting. And it also, for me, explains why it's so hard to pull people away from these figures or ideas. Because they're not really operating on “debate me” facts and logic; they're operating on very emotional grounds. They tie a lot of their identity to flat earth or a political ideal. And so when you're trying to help them disengage from that, I think you need to also try and have some element of emotional healing. You need to offer an alternative to what sustenance they're getting from that movement. So yeah, that was definitely a model that helped me while I was thinking about flat earth and why people believe. Mike: Yeah. It's like when I was doing my research on fascism for my Ph.D.-- that I didn't complete-- [laughs] one of the articles that I came across was talking about how the condition for someone deprogramming themselves from the Nazi movement, and from cult movements in general, is not only kind of a disillusionment with the movement that they're in but also kind of like an alternative that they can jump to, like a landing pad of a community that they can segue into without having to basically be alone in the world. Kelly: Yeah, absolutely. You know, it's funny. There were a few interesting anecdotes earlier this year, and I can't fact-check them, but I think there's the plausibility to people who were saying that they had former QAnon relatives who dropped it when they found something that met that same need. One of them was an aunt who got really into K-pop, which has this huge really loud online fandom, right? And so if the aunt was into QAnon because she wanted that community around her, well there's actually something comparable and infinitely less harmful in stanning BTS or whatever. And then the other was someone whose relative was into QAnon because she liked the puzzle element, and she got into Wordle. And she did 500 Wordle knockoffs a day. And that was just kind of taking the place for her. So I think people don't turn to these ultra-irrational things for no reason at all, they're seeking some unmet need. And if we can hopefully redirect them into something as harmless as BLACKPINK or whatever, that's definitely preferable. Mike: Yeah. Okay. One interesting thing that you did in the book, which I'm not sure that you even noticed, was you adopted some of their manners of speaking. So like in particular, more towards the end of the book, you start using "flat" to refer to flat earthers in the way that someone might use "gay" to refer to someone who's gay. You describe someone as being flat. You do point out also that they often use the phrase "coming out of the closet." So can we talk about how badly these people want to be gay? [Kelly laughs] But was there an acculturation process in talking to and understanding these people, though? Kelly: Yes. And also in terms of the coming out, what's so funny to me is these people really do want some legitimate form of victimhood because they do feel victimized and so they're just borrowing the language of the queer community, which is funny because a lot of these people are quite religious and conservative and are actually anti-gay, which I just thought was wild to see. Yes, there definitely was a process of learning how to talk to these folks. I think one of them was– I was never, like I said earlier, I was never really trying to debate people. There was one thing that I had to dodge almost every time I went to a conference or I was talking to a new person on the phone, was I said, "Hey, I've got my views, you've got yours. I don't know that we're going to come to any synthesis in the course of a 30-minute conversation." But yeah, I did try and hue pretty closely to their language. People would refer to themselves as being members of a community. When I talk about flat earth I, even now, refer to it as a community. I think because I've spent so much time around them, and hearing that term and actually kind of accepting that it is for them, a very communally based thing. One thing I had to dodge quite a lot was discussions of religion. I'm very much an atheist. This is very much a religiously-influenced movement. Although flat earth doesn't necessarily have to be religious, it's predominantly quite Christian. So just kind of learning how to approach a discussion like that, and be able to honestly represent my views without putting them off. And that's a little challenging sometimes. I'm also of Jewish heritage, and a lot of, frankly, there was a good deal of anti-semitism there. So, you know, just talking in open terms about faith I found was helpful. And yeah, you do kind of adopt the vocabulary a little bit. And I hope to put it in a way in this book that folks can read and feel like they were somewhat immersed in flat earth without completely giving them credence. Mike: Yeah, I definitely got that sense. You devote a chapter to flat earth fascists, but in all, it didn't seem that significant to me. Is this a misperception on my part? It didn't seem like there were that many flat fascists. Kelly: No. I'm very glad to say that most flat earthers are not fascists. But by that same token, I did feel like it was relevant enough that I had to put it in the book. And I think that's because it speaks to a broader issue with conspiracy theories. I think conspiracy theories are very, very useful to fascists, to totalizing movements in general, because they do allow people to cast out information that they don't want to grapple with. They allow people to have a very reduced view of the world and to perceive enemies where they don't exist, to perceive persecution where it doesn't exist, to form these in-group out-group associations. So I was fascinated by the existence of some flat earth nazis, which they are around. One of the biggest flat earth video makers also has multiple neo-nazi rap albums. So it bore mentioning. But I thought it was maybe a good way to draw connections between something like flat earth, which is so zany that I think most people can laugh at it, to something like QAnon which is an equally absurd conspiracy theory but has way more fascist momentum behind it. QAnon is just a fascist fever dream. So I thought that I had to, in some way, make an allusion to how these conspiracy theories can be weaponized for something that's less funny than flat earth. Mike: Yeah. So your last chapter is about one of my favorite things to do, and that's leaving. Talk about the people that left flat earth and what we might learn from their stories. Kelly: Absolutely. It was challenging for me to find people who left the flat earth movement who were willing to speak for this book. And that's not because a lot of people don't leave flat earth, they do, but they're kind of embarrassed about it. They don't want to go on the record, because it is an embarrassing thing to be wrong about. So I'm very, very grateful for the people who did speak to me on the record about this. And something that they told me was that there was this intense feeling of overcoming themselves almost to leave flat earth. They had sunk so many relationships into this theory. They'd alienated people; they'd been very argumentative about this theory; they'd been passionate about it. There were sunk costs, right? They didn't want all of it to have been for nothing. And so they put off leaving the theory really as long as they could, as long as they could still plausibly believe it. One guy told me that he was–at the end of his belief–he was so distressed that he couldn't look up at the sky. He didn't want to see a sunset because it would disprove flat earth. And he didn't want to look at it and grapple with that. So I think it took a tremendous amount of personal honesty and bravery for these people to say, "You know what? I was actually wrong. And these losses that I've experienced from flat earth were exactly that, they were losses." But I do think what helped the people I spoke to was having a community around them outside flat earth who helped them leave and didn't make them feel like idiots, who welcomed them back even though they'd been on a long strange trip for a couple of years. And so I think going back to that idea of community, that idea of having alternatives, being able to have a safe landing, I think, was the most helpful thing for these people. Mike: Okay.

Ministering Angels Through UBM (6) (Audio) David Eells - 8/31/22 Parting Statement From the Angel Baruch Eve Brast - 8/27/22 (David's notes in red) The Angel Baruch said, “Our time of bringing these messages to the people of UBM has come to a close. The purposes for which these have been brought forth has been accomplished and a great move of our God has been activated and set in motion. Many events will proceed rapidly from this time forward. (As we are revealing miracles have been happening since the 8th day.) We are not to be used for continual questioning daily. Your Lord and Saviour, Jesus, desires that you all go to Him in personal relationship for all your questions and desires. He will give you wisdom and discernment for everything that pertains to you and the ministry. You are His beloved Bride and He desires intimacy of relationship and to be pursued in this manner. He is not to be used for information purposes only, although, He will freely give to you the guidance and discernment for His people, on a “need to know” basis, as the situations arise. Continue on in sacrificial, meager living and in supplying the needs of your brethren, for this is the daily will of your Father. The true religion and undefiled before our God, is to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction.” (There are many spiritual fatherless and widows among our elect brethren too. They need our charity and guidance.) James 1:27, Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. Warning of Coming Raid on the Evangelist Missionaries Vanessa Weeks-8/20/22 (David's notes in red) (Without sharing too much, and giving knowledge to the enemy, we can say that Vanessa's dream revealed a planned attack by the Catholics on the Christian missionaries. The founding father of the missionaries said that the description that Vanessa gave in her dream was of the mission building that was attacked. We have to remember that both of these entities must remain underground or risk destruction by the Muslim authorities in the region. The Catholics and Coptics consider themselves the underground authority. They are like the Pharisees of old and like our faction, in that they murder Christians. The Christians in the dream had to hide some important things to get the Gospel out. At this point these men and I knew they were in danger of being discovered. The last time they persecuted and killed our missionaries it resulted in many Catholics realizing the true nature of their religion and turning to our missionaries and God. This time it will have the same result. This is the history of Christianity when they were persecuted by the apostates.) Word Concerning a Great Teacher and God's Future Plans for Middle East Missionaries Eve Brast - David - 8/23/22 (David's notes in red) Saints pray for the missionaries. Some were beaten and some died but most escaped. The Catholics killed 7 missionaries and injured 20. David asked, “What has happened to the great teacher?” Baruch said, “He has been taken and will be martyred for Christ's Name sake.” (Eve said, "I had a vision of him kneeling in a dark place with a stained, dirty, shirt. He had a cloth, light colored sack over his head and there were two captors standing over him with their hands on his shoulders. And I understood that they were going to kill him.")David asked, “Lord won't you free him and bring him back to us? We need his expertise.” Father said, “This is My will for him. I am doing a work in this situation that you do not understand right now. I have others that I'm raising up to take his place. (This missionary was excellent to lay this foundation to teach the missionaries how to free the people from their religious bondages. This anointing will change so that the trainees are equipped to escape notice by not being so dependent upon the mother Church. God is going to fill them with His Spirit which will make them unpredictable by lost religious people. John 3:8 The wind bloweth where it will, and thou hearest the voice thereof, but knowest not whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.) Father went on to say, "But, things will be changing rapidly over there (for the missionaries), from this point forward, as the battle intensifies in the spirit realm. The environment of relative stability is under assault and the way of the missionaries must change and adjust with it. It will no longer be conducive to organized establishments. (Much like the Christians in Jesus' day; they were scattered by persecution and the Gospel spread further.)Tell them to commit the gospel to their hearts. There is a time coming when they will not be able to distribute the materials. They will need to have the Word down in their hearts and their minds. The Gospel will be shared by word of mouth as it was in the 1st century church. (Also, we were told by the angel Baruch that our books would be spread supernaturally by the angels as we have seen happen on a limited scale before.)They, too, are heading out into "their wilderness" to worship me. They must eventually leave the establishments of Egypt behind. Their flames will be scattered once again in order for the sparks of revival to spread even further as I had commanded them in the beginning.They must not hide in fear or huddle together or they will suffer still greater losses. They must go out in the wilderness with praises and thanksgivings and declare the victory over the enemies.When they begin to do this with all their heart, mind and strength, lifting up praises to me, then I will cause a mighty shift to happen in the spiritual realm and things will begin to turn in their favor. This is how they will take the land. This will begin the greatest revival over there, just as it is beginning here with UBM. I am placing both on the same time line.Tell them to be strong and keep courage. I Am with them no matter how things appear. They must continue to trust in Me and My perfect plans and not take confidence in their own plans.” You must be filled with the Holy Spirit! Eve Brast - 8/26/22 (David's notes in red) David asked Shemuel, “What about the 3 people that disappeared?” (Eve, the visions I had are of,the great teacher, North and East of the city, under capture and about to be killed. Then I saw that two of the missing are in hiding.) Then Shemuel added, "The other has been captured too.” David asked, "Will you please send an angel to save them? Shemuel said, "The two in hiding will be restored, the other will be martyred as well." David asked, "Shemuel, Will you send angels to administer the gift of seeing and hearing angels to our blessed missionaries?” Shemuel said, “The Holy Spirit will be imparted to them as they press in to God and turn away from their works. This is part of their Father's plan for them. Then they will have increasing faith and power with God. They have been too busy with self efforts and works. They need to grow in wisdom and the knowledge of the Lord... They have been methodizing the spread of the gospel. God wants to take this out of them. This is why they have no power or protection.” (Eve said, I understood that this is why it was so important for them to go out and praise and worship in the wilderness. This was to be a turning point for them in having victories over their enemies. But the enemy confused the translation of the angels message to them. When they receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit, they will grow quickly to walk in the Spirit and not after the mind of the flesh.) (David said to the founding father of the missionaries, "Father wants to fill you all with His Spirit so you can hear from Him and follow His directions. This should be a number 1 priority, not Evangelizing. We are very sorry for your hardships. Tell everyone to forgive everyone, even the catholics, from the heart as Jesus said, so that a curse does not come upon you. Jesus said that if we do not forgive from the heart the Father will turn us over to the tormenting demons. Everyone must forgive for these people who are controlled by satan and are victims too. Every evangelist should be filled with the Holy Spirit. Read the book of Acts where they were filled with the Spirit and spoke in other tongues. When you are praising God, is the best time to ask for this gift. The Holy Spirit will give power, faith, wisdom, and direction leading to protection. The angels will protect you so command them to do this using your faith.) The Tremendous Need in the Middle East A Missionary Leader Witness - 8/27/22 I'm so sorry, but I wanted to explain to you what the situation was like with some missionaries and some believers. First, the situation was very sad because the missionaries died and others were injured. Also the disappearance of our great teacher, who is considered the first professor in a major city and the elder brother of all, and also was the father of those who consider him a father. He trained more than 600 missionaries. He was merciful, kind, forbearing, often fasting, praying, and praying. Even if he doesn't have boots and clothes. He walked barefoot. All he had were two suits, he washed one and put on the other. He used to give his ration of food to the homeless, and all he owned. His feet were soaked with blood every day from walking. He was kind to the sick and checking on widows and loved kids. We have lost a teacher dear to everyone's hearts. On the same day, instructions come to us to leave the city. Then we go walking for more than four hours on foot and under rainwater and we have patients. They bleed until they die, and we have injured....And we stayed days in the rain eating leaves, but the cold was very cold, praying praising. During these moments, the Catholics appeared. They say that the Church and the Pope have cursed us. They were able to deceive the new believers. The mood was so tense among some missionaries that some of them seemed to doubt … Even another important leader, said instructions to him to succeed and wait in the wilderness. This important leader, in every accident we are exposed to, comes and lifts the spirits of the injured. But, this time he only read the psalms without uttering a word. (We share this to let their brothers and sisters here know that they need our prayers and help. They have witnessed that the missionaries are many times barefooted having worn out their shoes from walking many miles and often only eat one meal a day and often eat leaves for a meal. The founding father of the missionaries sold his car recently to continue the spread of the Gospel when the ministry ran out of money to send over to them. As we saw, Jesus preached equality so that everyone's needs are met. The needs have grown far beyond our normal ministry income, so we have asked for your help. We have described only one city here. There are 18,000 converts in this large city asking for Bibles and books. Food is very scarce. There are 3 other missions that the missionaries go out from. Jas 2:15-17 If a brother or sister be naked and in lack of daily food, 16 and one of you say unto them, Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; and yet ye give them not the things needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it have not works, is dead in itself.) David's Response to the Missionary Leaders Witness David Eells 8/27/22 My love to you all. It appears that the original message from the angels we sent was somewhat mistranslated. We tried to explain it several times but were not capable. Also I never knew there were so many Arabic dialects until yesterday. We also obeyed the original messages and then when we were told it could go to the larger ministry, we sent it to them who started later and ended later on their 8th day. The larger ministry is around the world so they did it wherever they were. Many miraculous blessings fell on the people. (Which we will share later.)According to the message you were to fast from the fleshly things for seven days and then on the 8th go to worship to destroy the works of the enemy as in Psa 149 and then return home. Yes, the great leader was a Jesus man of great stature. We mourn him. He has raised up many who will walk in his steps. The Lord will see to it. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” He is with His Lord. Martyrs have a great reward. “The Lord works all things after the counsel of His own will.” All of the early Apostles mere martyred and they were the most valuable to the kingdom. The Lord said he does not make mistakes and that He would raise up others to take their place. We too have had people die by the hands of these kind of factious people. They have attempted to kill me several times and failed by Gods grace. The angels told me of my future crucifixion at their hands. It will be a relief. I believe they spoke of spiritual crucifixion. Since 2011 many Judas' have come against me to crucify my flesh and the local ministry.The Catholics are never right. No one who hates his brother has eternal life says the Lord. Were the Pharisees right because they killed the Lord and His disciples? Still we must forgive them from the heart or lose the kingdom. And we must forgive everyone or the Father turns us over to the tormenting demons - Mat 18:34-35.Our factious people use witchcraft to confuse us and send chaos. I have watched these demons snatch my emails in front of my face and I commanded them to bring them back and they did. (I said this to show how the enemy can confuse instructions by their witchcraft. This is why every individual missionary must be filled with the Holy Spirit.) They are capable of doing physical things and murder. We have seen this.We never knew the whole story on the ground. It is very sad and grieving. I started to only send english so you could translate to your own dialect. This is still not the best. Emails leave too much room for misunderstanding. Please let everyone know that we all have your best interests at heart. We would never willfully do anything to harm any of you. Please forgive us for any failure on our part. Please use the money we sent today to feed the people and buy shoes. We will send more as we are able. I have many times run completely out of my own money and the ministries money. I pray all of the brethren there will be filled with the Holy Spirit and gifts of word of knowledge and prophecy and word of wisdom, healing, miracles, etc. We are now writing a small book on receiving the Holy Spirit so we can translate it into Arabic. When we finish can we send it to you to translate it? The book of Acts shows us that they were commanded to have the Holy Spirit before they could go forth to evangelize. This gives an evangelist/missionary the best direction, power, and warning of things to come to escape many enemies. Father be with you all in Jesus name. Your servant, David. Money to Get the Gospel Out and Provide for God's People David asked the angels, “Can you tell me about how the money will come?” Baruch said, “We do not have details of all the ways your Father will send it. But we can tell you that "men will heap it into your bosom.” (This is because our ministry has given all to get the Gospel out freely. Luk 6:38 give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall they give into your bosom. For with what measure ye mete it shall be measured to you again.) David said, “Tell us what the saints need to hear at this time.” Baruch said, “Rejoice for you are now entering into a great time of grace and power that the Father is pouring out upon the first fruits. Keep emptying yourselves; overcome unbelief and ask your Father to fill you more and more with His faith.” Then Baruch said, “Behold your King is coming. Continue on in living meagerly before the Lord, after your fast. A great outpouring is coming and is already upon you. In the days to come you will see many more miracles, not only confirming all that has been spoken to you, but also the ministry of UBM. Word will spread exponentially as these things start to take place and men will be so inspired and impressed with the Lord in your midst they will bestow their gifts of wealth and their assets upon the ministry.” (This is to serve others by spreading the Gospel and meeting their needs.) Message from Our Father Given Through the Angel over UBM, Baruch, for Those in Local and Larger UBM Eve Brast 8/22/22 (David's notes in red) From David: Father is preparing all in UBM to be provided for in the coming days of scarcity - Acts 2:44-45. This has to include those who are on the front line sacrificing their lives to get the Gospel out. What Baruch commanded in Part 5 from the Lord is exactly what the scriptures already tell us to do. Go and read it again. This is what I have been living, and teaching for many years was coming. The sacrifices that the saints gave to bring equality in Acts paved the way for a great revival, which the angels have stated is about to be poured out again.) Baruch said, “Our great God is bringing back the 1st century, "Book of Acts” church operations. (We are watching this happen. Ecc 1:9 That which hath been is that which shall be; and that which hath been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.) Everyone who has partaken in the blessings that UBM has bestowed upon their lives are commanded to sell all things of value that do not pertain to life and sustenance; all things that were purchased or obtained for the purposes of fulfilling the wants and desires of the flesh. And to contribute any excess of monies (i.e. anything over and above what to you need to pay off debts and bills and daily needs for business or life.) that have been hoarded up for retirement living, or children and children's children, or that has been clung to as a safety net or a crutch, so as to avoid a true walk of faith in the daily provisions of your Father. Everyone who has power over their own belongings and monies will now be responsible to shoulder the burden with UBM and her support.” Baruch said by the Spirit of God that I would be crucified for teaching this doctrine of equality even though I have preached this for almost 50 years. One person came to me to say this was a deception of the devil. Of course he could have had an ulterior motive since he was not obeying God's Word in this. Jesus, who is the very Word of God, was accused of doing His works by the devil, which He said was blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Attributing the works of the Spirit to the devil is blasphemy, which Jesus said would not be forgiven. Apostates today say very dangerously that tongues are of the devil, when it is clearly called a gift of the Holy Spirit in the Word, and a door to all the supernatural gifts. These apostates crucify the obedient. So since the Word is our standard for relationships to others, let us look more carefully at it to see what is apostasy. Jas 2:15-17 If a brother or sister be naked and in lack of daily food, 16 and one of you say unto them, Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; and yet ye give them not the things needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it have not works, is dead in itself. Do you have faith that "God will supply your every need” as He says in Phi 4:19 or are you trusting in your money? When you are free from this idol you will be able to feely give to every need out of your abundance. (Exo. 16:17-21 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered some more, some less. 18 And when they measured it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over (So the rich need to be “ready to distribute” as commanded), and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating. (So here we see that going into the wilderness as we are doing involves everyones needs met with equality.) 19 And Moses said unto them, Let no man leave of it till the morning. (I.e. Don't save or store up; give.) 20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and became foul: and Moses was wroth with them. (Many saved up food for Y2K only to find it was all ruined but this is true of anything including money.) 21 And they gathered it morning by morning, every man according to his eating:) So we see that their savings were lost as Jesus also said would happen to those who saved instead of sowed. (Mat 6:19-21 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth consume, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 for where thy treasure is, there will thy heart be also.) How do we lay up treasures in heaven for our future needs in the wilderness? (Mat 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wouldest be perfect, go, sell that which thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. Luk 14:33 So therefore whosoever he be of you that renounceth not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.) 2Co 8:9-15 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might become rich. 10 And herein I give my judgment: for this is expedient for you… (So this is what we are called to do.) 13 For I say not this that others may be eased and ye distressed; 14 but by equality: your abundance being a supply at this present time for their want, that their abundance also may become a supply for your want; that there may be equality: 15 as it is written, He that gathered much had nothing over; and he that gathered little had no lack. 2Co 9:6-11 But this I say, He that soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he that soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. (Did you know that we can only reap what we sow? People want a rich reward when the Lord returns in His Man-child but they don't want to sow so they can reap what they want.) 7 Let each man do according as he hath purposed in his heart: not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. (Now look at the powerful promises for seeking this equality.) 8 And God is able to make all grace abound unto you; that ye, having always all sufficiency in everything, may abound unto every good work: 9 as it is written, He hath scattered abroad, he hath given to the poor; His righteousness abideth for ever. (Notice the Bride is righteous in this regard.) 10 And he that supplieth seed to the sower and bread for food, shall supply and multiply your seed for sowing, and increase the fruits of your righteousness: (Notice the reaping is not for keeping but sowing again.) 11 ye being enriched in everything unto all liberality, which worketh through us thanksgiving to God. (Since we have started sacrificially giving our all, monetarily and living meagerly and offering up the sacrifice of our lips in praise and worship, our faith has been increased to believe for what we pray and ask for and decree. We have seen creative miracles of things that were broken fixed, and healings, which we will report in the next broadcast.) (Years ago I said, Denying the Word, false prophecy, jerking and twitching, barking like dogs, mooing like cows, clucking like chickens and railing at those who don't, was demon possession because it made a foolish beast out of Christians and because I had cast some of these demons out before. We once had a sister who had perfect dreams and many were on our site but when she fell into this nonsense we removed all of her good dreams from our site because we did not want anyone to go to her and get the same disease. Even though we thought Anna Rountree's dream was good and confirmed by Marie's dream, we discovered that she eventually fell into the false revival or false prophetic movement with Bob Jones that I just spoke of. It's been our custom that when this has happened in the past to remove their materials from our website and any links so that no one is damaged by these spirits. So we removed it from this series. Dont get me wrong, anyone can have a false prophetic word when its already in their mind or they are attacked by evil spirits to discredit them or their message. Paul said, “We prophesy in part” meaning, its part us and part God. 1Co 13:10 but when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away. (The Lord recently told us that it is a learning process to discern truth in prophecies.) But when a person is constantly in gross error according to the Word and they refuse it, it is a demon possession. In the New Testament we judge the spirit of the prophecy rather than saints who are prophesying in part.) Back to Baruch: This is how it is commanded to be among you from this day forward. Many more will be joining themselves to you in the coming days and they will need to see this example and way of life from you all. A Book of Records has now been opened in Heaven for the Last Century, "Book of Acts" Church, as this message has been brought forth to all in UBM. Your free will, offerings and acts of obedience, as well as any disobediences and the hardening of hearts at the promptings of the Holy Spirit, will now be recorded and witnessed. All who humble themselves to this message from our God and Great King will be greatly rewarded in this life and in the life to come. But those who allow demons of selfishness, greed, fear, and fear of man to dictate their choices in this matter will lose everything in the times just ahead. God will destroy these idols of money and things and will not allow them to remain to fulfill the purposes for which they were stored up. But the most tragic consequence of disobedience to this command will be much loss of the eternal rewards that have been prepared for them in heaven. “Make for yourselves purses that wax not old” to the glory of our God and for the corporate benefit of the Body of Christ. (Ecc 5:11,13,&14 When goods increase, they are increased that eat them (So if someone is overindulging or storing up others are doing without.); and what advantage is there to the owner thereof, save the beholding of them with his eyes? 13 There is a grievous evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept by the owner thereof to his hurt: 14 and those riches perish by evil adventure; and if he hath begotten a son, there is nothing in his hand.) All will get into the same boat or be left out in the cold of the winter of judgments that are coming upon the economies and the peoples of the world.” The Harvest is Ripe for the Greatest Revival Eve Brast 8/29/22 (David's notes in red) We already distribute our books in Northern Africa and a great revival is taking place there as a result. We are already distributing books in the East of South Africa. Because of the factious attacking the people who confess us, I asked, “Is it time for us to distribute our books in the West of South Africa?" Eve said, “I asked the Lord Jesus to speak to us about this and He said, “My harvest is ripe for the picking in South Africa. You may glean freely without fear of the enemy as long as you continue in faith and sacrificial praise and worship; lifting Me up and glorifying My Name, your defenses will remain impenetrable as My messengers have told you. The time for hiding is over. I Am revealing My glorious Bride for all to behold. I Am moving you into a renewed time of great grace in spreading My Gospel far and wide for the greatest revival ever witnessed. (Eve said, I understood that pockets of persecution will always arise, but the Lord will bring their efforts to naught. No matter what they do or say, it will result in a greater glorification of the Bride and the Name of Jesus moving forward and the truth of the Gospel will spread all the more. John 16:33 These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.) Remain faithful to all My commands that My messengers have brought to you and your enemies will remain scattered, subdued and under your feet. Fear not, My Bride, for I Am with you.” I asked for a word by faith at random for this Word from the Lord and my finger was on the words, “he commanded” in Dan. 3:20 (in context 20-25) And he commanded certain mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. 21 Then these men were bound in their hosen, their tunics, and their mantles, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 22 Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. 23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. (Because they confessed their faith in God, He delivered them and destroyed their enemies.) 24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste: he spake and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. 25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the aspect of the fourth is like a son of the gods. (It was the same story with Daniel in the lions den; He was spared and the enemies were destroyed and so it will be.)

This week we take a look at the song that immortalized being 23 and stupid. But what is it about Blink 182's ode to never growing up that somehow actually made them immortal? Did it have anything to do with extra terrestrials or the nine lives of its band members? And what role did the band's childish misogyny play in shaping the hearts and minds of the impressionable young people who loved it? Do aliens really exist? What does Green Day have to do with any of it? All this and more, this week when we take you back to the days of infamous White House scandal and Y2K hysteria.

Bonus episode 1. Voicemails from Jessica Shaw to Katarina Fischer in 2001. Scene B1:1 (Modem, clicks) JESS (softly) Kat! (shakes head) I mean, Ina... I am trying! Promise... Sorry it's been a while. Still in new-baby-shock-mode. Yeah. Rachel and Liv fell asleep a little while ago, and I should probably catch some too, but you know me. No good at sleeping in the day... Plus I *should* get some writing done. (sighs) Not sure how. My brain is mush. I had all these plans... (snort) I was going to start a novel. I've had this idea percolating for a while, and it feels like the story needs to be in novel form. (stifles a yawn) I'll tell you about it when I'm less tired. (smiles) If that ever happens. How much time could one tiny baby really need from two parents, right? I was... (smiles) extremely foolish. Turns out: *all* of the time. One hundred percent. More, if she could. (sheepish) I start part-time at the library next week, and I'm almost... looking forward to it? To be somewhere else and do something with other adults and not be in this constant baby fog... I'll miss them both, of course, and still won't get any sleep, but maybe I can- (baby starts crying in other room, JESS lets out breath, quickly) Have to run – love you! (clicks) Scene B1:2 (Modem, clicks) JESS Kat! Ina! Sorry! Hi. I'm working. It's good. I like the library. Weird not to be home though. And I MISS them. But also: Talking to other adults about things that have nothing to do with babies? Bliss. In fact, so blissful that I feel guilty. Rachel doesn't get to do that. We joined this mummy-baby-group-thing and went together the first few times but guess what everyone's talking about? Yeah. Babies... And sleep deprivation. And nipple pads and cloth diapers – sorry – nappies! – and baby swim classes and baby yoga. It's this whole new weird world. Honestly I'm impressed if we manage to get the three of us dressed and out of the apartment in anything resembling a reasonable time for doctor's appointments and the baby group – can't really imagine trying to fit in baby yoga... How are you? I tried to listen to your latest voicemail this morning but I only had a minute at a time so it was a bit disjointed. So glad the shoot is exciting, though, I- (baby starts crying in other room, JESS lets out breath, quickly) Sorry! Oceans! (clicks) Scene B1:3 (Modem, clicks) JESS (baby is whining in other room) Ina! Kat! No – got it right! This is not a message. It's a placeholder. Liv will not stop crying and we don't know what to do. At some point, I will be able to finish sentences again. Complete thoughts. Wish I knew when. Oh Kat, I'm so tired. Have to get back to Liv and Rachel. Am sending Rachel over to Bree's to get some sleep. I love you. (clicks) Scene B1:4 (Modem, clicks) JESS (exhausted, almost whispering) Ina! Dearest Ina, so sorry about the radio silence. It's been... These past few weeks... We do everything they tell us to but it's not enough. Liv has colic. Because, of course that's what it is. Even in our muddled states we should have realized. It will pass, they say. Sometime. (sighs) My dear, I think we have to give up on voicemails for a while. Much as I love hearing your voice, I either am so tired I can't focus or Liv is screaming, poor thing. I'll write you, instead. At least with e-mails I can stop and start as many times as I need. I am so excited about your movie and everything wonderful happening in your life, and I really want to know what is going on, but I can't handle voicemails right now. Sending you oceans and oceans of hugs. (beginning of baby cry, cut off) (clicks) Scene B1:5 NARRATOR Thank you for listening to this bonus episode of Y2K: Take 2.

Denim is a fashion category which is so intrinsically linked to lifestyle both from a practicality point of view, but also in terms of cultural and social identity - people are passionate about their jeans so when we see new trends shaking things up the impact is significant. Denim had a tough time during the pandemic. As we all went into that first lockdown we quickly slid into slouch - the move to sweatpants was overnight and many feared the denim category wouldn't recover, but recover it did - almost as soon as lockdowns lifted, and it's projected to continue growing with Allied Market Research projecting it to hit $88.1bn by 2030 but the denim industry post-pandemic looks very different to the one we knew and loved. In this episode the team discusses everything from fit cycle data, TikTok and Y2K brand influencers, to sustainability and new fabric innovation.
The close of the 20th century brought about many volatile transitions, both privately and publicly, and the Y2K mania was a strange one. Looking back, I think it started the new millennium off with the kind of mass hysteria over nothing that would ripen over the next couple of decades. I have a Patreon page! Please check it out.

In another quasi-episode (sorry, we are preparing for a 23-person family reunion at Mom's house), Carrie reads a piece she wrote called "Boneless Girl," named for a disturbing miniclip.com game she played as a child in the aughts. Exploring the scourge of 2000s "bubblegum misogyny" (see Constance Grady in Vox, 2021) and its effect on the minds of young girls like the writer herself, the essay reflects on how the public's dissociative seeing of celebutantes like Paris, Nicole, Mischa, and Mary Kate foreshadowed our own unmooring of our images from ourselves. Following the reading, Ellie and Carrie discuss how their prelapsarian Internet experience (think computer rooms and Ebaum's World) devolved into something much darker and panoptically consuming. Is our fall from grace, triggered by Eve's eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, a fortunate one? What would John Milton have to say?
