Episode 12 is the second part of an interview with Henry Nuss, PhD. It explores the quality of the food you eat, and how the health of your digestive system is one of the most important factors in overall health with Erika Marcoux, MA. Henry has a PhD in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Texas at Austin. He is an assistant professor at the Louisiana State University health sciences center in New Orleans. He also worked as an evaluation contractor for the Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC).

Everyday, your body is busy making new cells to replace cells that have expired. How healthy those new cells are is directly determined by how well you’ve been eating. * Every body, every brain, every gut, and every person’s biochemistry is unique, not to mention constantly changing. How many calories do we drink? * The average American drinks 400 calories daily! * Your body doesn’t detect calories from liquid the same way it detects calories from solid food. * When you eat calories in the form of food, you naturally compensate by eating less. But when you drink liquid calories, you don’t necessarily drink less. * It’s best to drink plain, filtered water. How does your digestive system work? * Your small intestine absorbs most of your nutrition into your bloodstream. * Your large intestine absorbs water and changes food waste from liquid to stool. * There are more than 1,000 types of bacteria that live in your large intestine. * You have 2 to 3 pounds of bacteria there. This bacteria doesn’t come from you and is technically no part of you. Why is losing weight often hard? * You were born with the same number of fat cells that you’re ever going to have. Your fat cells don’t necessarily divide like other cells do, all they do is get bigger and smaller. * Being overweight is a biochemical issue. * Processed foods with artificial preservatives, colors, sugar, fat, and salt light up the same parts of your brain as addictive drugs. This is called the bliss point. * These foods can increase the toxic load in your body, turn on inflammation, and alter your biochemistry. * These foods give you a lot of calories, but relatively nothing else in terms of protein, vitamins, minerals, and more. * You have your allotment of calories for the day, but relatively little nutrition to show for it. Why are childhood diseases rising at an alarming rate? * A lot of children mimic their parent’s poor eating behavior. * Many children eat four times their daily suggested calories at breakfast alone. * Processed foods are usually filled with chemicals and inflammatory fats and very little real nutritional value. * Type two diabetes was common in older adults. Now children as young as five years old are being diagnosed. How much do Americans eat? Every year the average person eats the following according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). * 152.4 pounds of sugar and other sweeteners * 74.5 pounds of added fats and oils such as salad dressing, cooking oil, frying fat, and butter And we’re consuming more of just about everything * 19% more calories since 1983 * 57 pounds more meat per person since the 1960s (and a third fewer eggs) * More cheese (but less milk) * 66% more fat since the 1950s ➤CONNECT WITH ME All Episodes: https://bit.ly/2NfSst4 Podcast: https://apple.co/2KzQ3rG Instagram: https://bit.ly/2MjShh0 Facebook: https://bit.ly/2z41u4i Business Inquiries: info@erikamarcoux.com ➤ABOUT YOUR TRUTH REVEALED video podcast.

On the surface, achieving goals may seem like it’s not something you should be giving thought to: it’s a mechanical, automatic response to something you’ve already conditioned yourself to attain. But the truth is, goal-setting and achieving those goals require a lot more than just sitting down and envisioning them – even if that is a crucial part of the process.

Patrick joins Scott Carson to discuss how you can overcome your internal wiring to dominate your new goals.

Sarah Stein joins the podcast to talk about her recent book, Family Papers: A Sephardic Journey through the Twentieth Century, and how looking closely at the history of one family can tell us the story of an entire century. Sarah Abrevaya Stein is a Professor of History and holds the Maurice Amado Endowed Chair in Sephardic Studies at UCLA’s Department of History, and she also is the Sady and Ludwig Kahn Director of UCLA’s Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies. Besides Family Papers, just a few of her many other notable books include Plumes: Ostrich Feathers, Jews, and a Lost World of Global Commerce (2008), and Sephardi Lives, an incredible documentary history which she co-edited with Julia Phillips Cohen. Purchase Family Papers on AmazonRead an excerpt from Family Papers: “A Family Tree Forever Changed by Disaster” Family Papers is just phenomenal, and it’s gotten a lot of attention recently: The Economist named it one of the best books of 2019, and it was also a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice and a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award. Beyond the awards and accolades, Family Papers provides an entryway into an important discussion about diaspora histories, the pathways of Sephardic Jews across the twentieth century, and the importance of everyday historical materials. These “family papers” of the Levi family not only give us the book’s evocative title, but they also animate and give life to a tremendously rich story and bring us to think about our own place in history.

On today’s episode, the squad talks about Sober Parenthood. We’ve all read and probably laughed at a meme that jokes about needing to drink to cope as a parent. For years, alcohol has steadily seeped into the social fabric of motherhood, with pitchers of mimosas at morning playdates, Thermoses of “mommy juice” on the soccer field sidelines and Facebook feeds filled with stylized memes declaring it’s not really drinking alone if your kids are home. Studies show that women — especially women in their 30s and 40s — are drinking more than ever before.  It is said to have originated back in the 1960s, when mostly male doctors would reportedly prescribe Valium as a way for women to manage their anxiety, rather than teaching them coping and self-regulation tools, and calling the process “Mommy’s Little Helper”.

The Kindle ebook market is a fascinating topic for authors in every genre. Writers around the world are guessing about what’s hot and what’s not in 2020. If you want to write in a genre that sells, it’s a great question to ask. To find out, I interviewed Alex Newton. Alex is the CEO and founder of K-lytics.com, which is a leading Kindle market research resource for authors and publishers. He spent 20 years at a top management consulting company creating strategy guides and market analysis that cost millions of dollars for companies that would pay for it. Now he uses that same expertise to analyze the Amazon marketplace. He knows what’s going on in the Kindle market because he has analyzed the data. Thomas Umstattd Jr: Alex, what is K-lytics, and what does it do for authors? Alex Newton: We are a market research company, and we provide data on the book market to authors, agents, and publishers. Our purpose is to provide more transparency in a market that has lacked transparency. We want to help authors make better and faster publishing decisions so they can sell more books. Join us for our free K-lytics webinar. REGISTER NOW Total Kindle Unlimited Sales Up 14% in 2019 Thomas: In the big picture of the 2020 Kindle market, is the ebook market growing or shrinking? Alex: In order to tell, we must look at the facts and then extrapolate. The first thing to know is that it has always been a matter of perspective. Who do you ask about the data? From the traditional publisher’s view, the Association of American Publishers (AAP) reports the quarterly trade publishing numbers in the U.S. The mainstream media picks up on the AAP numbers and quotes them and says, “Hey, ebooks are shrinking again.” We took an extrapolation of their Q3 numbers in 2019, and their ebook sales are shrinking, another 3.8% per year, roughly. Once you dig into it, you find out their statistical sample—the companies they asked about ebook sales—was made up of 1,300 traditional publishers in the U.S. But the leading company in the ebook market, Amazon, was not included in their sample. How can you discuss these market numbers if you are using a sample that represents probably less than 20% of the overall ebook market? If you ask traditional publishers, ebooks are shrinking. But if you ask me, with a view toward Amazon, I’m going to paint a much different picture. Thomas: I talked with a representative from the NPD Group, which is a big publishing research firm. They collect their data by polling the top publishers, as you’ve said. Then they get retail data from the retailers. But they do not get data from Amazon, and so they have this big hole in their data. I’ve spent enough time with publishing executives to know that they don’t consider the indie market to be producing many sales at all. But I know from having looked at your data, and Amazon’s data in general, that in a lot of categories, the bestselling authors for Kindle are indie authors. Not only do they hold a big part of the market, but the number-one bestselling authors in certain categories are independent authors. That’s a huge chunk of sales that companies like NPD Group or AAP aren’t seeing. When they claim the market is shrinking, they’re not counting indie authors. When you include the indie authors and their data, is the market shrinking or growing? Alex: If you look at the U.S. ebook market, about 85%, if not more, of the ebook market is held by Amazon. When you look at the whole ebook market, and when you include the Amazon data, you get a much more representative view. Amazon does not officially publish their ebook numbers. They are very restrictive on what they disclose when it comes to individual commodities. But if you look at their annual reports, one indicator of the ebook growth is the growth of the Kindle Global Select Fund. The Kindle Global Select Fund includes all the royalties that are paid out to authors who have signed up to the Kindle Unlimited program, which holds a significant share of this 85%. That pot of money grew by another 13% last year to more than $300 million by now. If you look at the payouts and what they now pay per page, you can extrapolate what that means for the ebook market. Our numbers suggest that growth since 2016 has been 19% per annum. Last year Kindle sales grew by 14%. Whoever says ebooks are shrinking is, in my mind, completely missing the boat. Traditional Publishers Continue to See Kindle Sales Declines Thomas: It’s important to understand that when traditional publishers say ebooks are shrinking, they’re saying our sales are shrinking. In contrast, overall Kindle sales are growing. That means all the growth in ebooks is coming to independent authors grabbing market share from traditional publishing companies. Alex: And it’s no wonder because if you look at the trade revenues of traditional publishers, their priority is not ebooks. They make about $8 billion in the U.S. in trade revenues across all formats. But of these $8 billion, about $3.1 billion are hardback, and about $2.7 billion are paperback and mass market. The famous ebook number is close to $1 billion, and then audio is over $600 million per annum. Those are their trade numbers, and roughly $1 billion in their ebook numbers has been shrinking. Indie Ebook Sales Continue to Grow Alex: But the Amazon numbers have been growing. Where does that growth coming from? Who is truly earning the money? We made an informed estimate based on looking at 50,000 books. We ran all those individual books against the names of Amazon imprints, Big Five imprints, and indies. At the top of the mountain of that data, where all the money is being earned, we saw about 38% of all the top 100 rankings across all the bestseller lists being taken by indies. The next biggest shares, and steadily growing, were the Amazon imprints. And after that come the Big Five, and only then all the others. So that is how we view the market. That’s the market picture for those who earn money on a monthly basis based on Kindle Publishing and other platforms. Thomas: So, traditional publishers are making $8 billion dollars collectively, and only one billion of that is from ebooks. For them, ebooks are only a small piece of the financial pie. But for your typical indie author, maybe 80% of their money comes from ebooks. They care a lot more about ebooks and Kindle. I’ve actually seen traditional publishers price their ebooks high to make them unappealing so it will drive people to buy the paperback. A well-known author with an ebook listed for $12.99 will not have a high rank in the Kindle store where most books are priced around $2.99. Part of the reason traditional publishers aren’t doing as well in the ebook space is that they are not trying to. It’s not a priority for them like it is for independent publishers. What are the new trends in the Kindle market? Thomas: What are some of the new trends you see evolving? What’s changed over the last year on Amazon? Alex: First and foremost is what we call ‘pay to play.’ Everyone is worried about visibility and wants their books showing up in the rankings. They want to know what they can do. The fact of the matter is that in 2019 Amazon changed some things in their interface, so fewer books are showing up. For example, if you’re on a desktop, you’ll see a list of about 16 books per page plus one prominent book at the top. Of those 17 placements, about seven positions are sponsored results. That means that about 41% of the real estate on an Amazon page is now paid advertising. If you want to show up there, you have to pay. So, one big factor is learning to manage your ads, and the way to get visibility on Amazon is with a paid advertising strategy. It will be a bit like the winner takes it all in the end because they can afford to reinvest their money into more ads. So that’s potentially one effect of the changes in their interface. Thomas: I want to point out, though, this is how advertising has always been. You’re going to Amazon because you want to purchase something. It’s just like when you’re at the grocery store. The placement of the products on the grocery store shelf is paid for by the vendors. If you see a big display for a particular brand of toilet paper, that toilet paper company paid to have a display put there, and that’s a form of advertising. It doesn’t feel like advertising because you may have gone to the store to buy toilet paper anyway. What are the trends with Kindle Unlimited? Thomas: What are some other trends that you’re seeing? Alex: The other trend is the gain of Kindle Unlimited. Kindle Unlimited is where the author or publisher sells exclusively on Amazon. There have always been conspiracy theories that Amazon is giving particular weight in the rankings to Kindle Unlimited books. I do not believe that is the case. But the fact of the matter is that Kindle Unlimited has gained significantly in share.  We looked back at the numbers in 2016, and out of all the top 100 rankings across the 30 main categories, only about 45% of these top-ranking positions were taken by Kindle Unlimited books. At the end of 2019, we saw 62% of those top-ranking positions taken Kindle Unlimited books. That’s a huge jump. But it does differ by genre. If you look at the Romance genre, about 80% of the ebooks are Kindle Unlimited. It’s the same in SciFi, Fantasy, and Teen Young Adult. So, in some major genres, Kindle Unlimited is dominating the game. This causes people to think that Amazon is gaming the system and giving preference to Kindle Unlimited. But I believe there is a simple explanation behind that phenomenon. If you are an end-customer and you sign up to Kindle Unlimited (K.U.), you pay a monthly subscription. But once you’ve paid, you go to the site to download a book it feels like it’s free because you’ve already paid your subscription fee.   But the irony is that the Kindle Unlimited download drives the sales rank of a book in exactly the same way as a paid purchase. So, it’s like a free ebook competing with a paid book. Over time, the relatively higher conversion that is baked into a virtually free ebook, like a K.U. download, will outpace and outperform the paid books. That’s why we have seen this huge gain in Kindle Unlimited. Thomas: That’s right because Amazon keeps two bestseller lists. They keep a bestseller list of free books, and they keep a bestseller list of paid books. You might think that Kindle Unlimited downloads go into that free category. But that’s not the case because technically it’s not free. Readers pay a monthly $10 subscription for Kindle Unlimited, and that counts toward that paid list. How are the Amazon imprints performing? Thomas: Let’s talk about Amazon imprints. Amazon is trying to have their cake and eating it, too, because they’re not just a retailer. They’re also a publisher. They publish their own books. I have often thought that they would just dominate the market because they have such useful data. Since they know who’s finishing which books, they can identify which authors are good from an objective perspective. How are the Amazon imprints doing? Are they gaining or losing market share? Alex: They’ve gained market share. By purchasing these publishers—there are three big ones and about 20 others—they have more than 26% in share. That is significant. As an Amazon company, you will have some advantages. If you talk to individual authors of those imprints, they’ll tell you Amazon knows e-business, and their imprints thrive much better in the Amazon ecosystem. The Amazon imprints have become a major player. How do audiobooks impact the Kindle market? Thomas: Let’s talk about audio. I’m a big advocate for audiobooks. How is audio growing? How is the growth of audio impacting Kindle? Alex: Again, there are two perspectives. There is the Amazon view, and then there’s a traditional publisher view. But this is probably the one item where both worlds agree. Out of that $8 billion we mentioned earlier, more than $600 million a year in 2019 was audiobook sales for the traditional publishers. For them, that’s a growth of about 33% in 2019. That is significant. Now, Amazon doesn’t publish its audio sales. But over the years we have monitored the overall book bestseller lists on the Amazon store by genre. We looked at the penetration of the various formats across those bestseller lists. And although I cannot give you a percentage, if you look at it graphically, the area of audiobooks has grown significantly since 2017. If you look at some of the top bestseller lists by genre, you’ll see that in SciFi and Fantasy, 35% of the top 100 books in SciFi have become audiobooks. In Literature and Fiction overall, 25% have become audiobooks. Romance was surprisingly low at less than 5%. I found that surprising. There is an interesting phenomenon in audiobooks. Thomas: Part of the reason is a gender difference. Women make up the majority of readers of romance. Men make up the majority of listeners of audiobooks. The genres that tend to do well as audiobooks are male-reader targeted genres. The Business genre is really big for audiobooks as well as SciFi and Fantasy. Audible has made some efforts to grow their female listenership, and I think it’s helped to a certain degree. But it’s still the one format where there are more men than women. Normally, women dominate the reading market. Women are more likely to be readers and bookstore visitors. It’s a weird phenomenon, and I’ve never heard anyone explain the why behind it. But what’s interesting to me is how little of the money is going to traditional publishers from audiobook sales. You mentioned that $600 million is going to the actual publishers– that’s what they’re reporting as their profit. But if you look at the Audio Publishers Association (those who narrate the audiobooks), they reported in 2018 that they had nearly $1 billion in revenue. What’s happened is that Amazon completely dominates or had previously dominated the audiobook space because Audible is just such a huge player. What do traditional publishers think about Audible? Thomas: Even when you buy an audiobook on iBooks, you’re purchasing it from Audible, which is owned by Amazon. Amazon can use that market position to create really unfair deals with the publishing companies. Very little of that $15 you spend for an Audible credit goes to the publisher, and even less goes to the author. To offset that, publishers have teamed up with Book Bub and launched a new audiobook publishing service called Chirp. Chirp is a much better deal for publishers. And that’s why they’re there backing it so aggressively with a lot of their top content. They have some indie books, but it’s a lot of top-name authors, and their books are aggressively discounted. It’s only $1 to $5 for a book on Chirp. The publishers are willing to give a big discount because they’re still potentially making more money selling the $5 book on Chirp than they are selling a $10 book on Audible. Alex: That’s very interesting. I concur with the genre and gender domination. When I look at our emerging genre stats on the audio side, SciFi, Business, and Self-Help books are the types of things guys typically listen to. It’s going to be interesting to see how the Audible subscription model does against these new emerging platforms. What is the future of audiobooks? Thomas: My prediction is that over the next five years, the gender gap will even out. I base that prediction on what has happened with podcasting. Men dominated the first ten years of podcast listening. Most podcasts were made and consumed by men. But that has changed in the last two years. There has been a flood of new female podcasters and listeners. I think podcasting is the “gateway drug” to audiobook listening. You listen to some free podcasts, and then you hear some commercials for an audiobook service, and suddenly you’re starting to buy audiobooks. That’s why I think opportunities will open up in the audio space for books with a predominately female readership. Previously romance audiobooks have struggled to reach female readers. The romance audiobooks are not making the fortunes that they’re making on Kindle Unlimited. But I think that will change. Alex: I got one fascinating hypothesis on that from a romance author. She said romance readers are so voracious, and they consume the books so fast, that the speed of the audio narrator is too slow for many consumers of romance novels. I found that interesting. Thomas: Audible launched a special romance subscription program, and they have ways of speeding up the audio, but they still haven’t quite figured out how to solve that problem for romance. What is happening in other genres in Kindle? Which genres have gained, and which have dropped off in the last year? Alex: The overall trend has been surprisingly stable when it comes to the overall share that we see in the genres. Romance is still the number-one genre, and it is followed closely by Mystery Thriller and Suspense. SciFi is third and is often competing with Teen Young Adult. Then comes Nonfiction. Those are the big ones. But once you dive deeper—which we’ll do extensively in the webinar we’ll host together—you find that within those main genres are subgenres where we can see trends of Paranormal Romance going up or down. We can see what the Dragon Shifter subgenre is doing. Those are the areas our data allows us to explore in endless granularity. Where will the Kindle trends go in 2020? Thomas: Your K-lytics reports inform authors of which genres and subgenres are currently the best space to be writing in. You can see the trends.   Where do you see the trends going in the future? Alex: I think two things are going to happen. I think we’re going to see a continued gain in share by Amazon imprints at the expense of traditional publishers. And I think within the indie space we’re going to indies hanging in there, holding their share, and potentially slightly gaining. But we may see a bit of shift within the indie landscape. Within the indie landscape, we are seeing authors move to more of a collaborator and publisher model. That allows those indie publishers and authors to invest in advertising in smarter ways collectively. There is potential for authors to collaborate and potentially create trends. Can authors create Kindle trends? Alex: A couple of factors impact what readers want. If we look back in time, we saw the rise of Vampire Romance and Paranormal Romance. This year in Mystery Thriller and Suspense, there is huge growth in Psychological Thrillers that is way over the market average. So, there are these individual pockets where there are some underlying megatrends. However, you also have factors where authors get together and ask what trend they want to create. I think there is a lot of potential there because since so much of the shelf space is paid, as we discussed earlier, then those who pay can create the trend. You may suddenly see dragon urban fantasy novels all over the place because urban fantasy authors get together and decide this will be the year of the dragon. Maybe next year will be the year of the female superhero. That is how trends will be created in the time to come. Thomas: It will be interesting to see if that works. So often trends happen because there’s some super big hit book. The Vampire Romance trend was kicked off by the epically successful Twilight books. Especially voracious romance readers, who read three to ten books per month, will get through the whole Twilight series in a month. Indie authors are really good at letting those voracious readers know about books that are similar to Twilight. Suddenly you’re creating a genre and a category on Amazon that is very vibrant. It all started with a hit book. But you never know what those big hits are going to be. It’s hard to predict. But I have noticed that indies are much more responsive to those trends. Alex: Indies are agile. Sometimes the reactive game works, sometimes it doesn’t. For example, long after the Twilight series had died down, we still had Bella Forrest writing more than 60 books in her Shades of Vampire series. There were probably 50 other authors who jumped on that bandwagon and made a living on it for over ten years.  Twilight came out more than ten years ago, and the vampire still don’t die on the Amazon platform. Other categories don’t seem to have the same longevity, though. In 2019 we did a superhero study to update our data. In 2019 we saw the highest number of superhero movies released in a year. The iconic Stan Lee pass away end of 2018, and there was a lot of media attention surrounding his death. You would think that may have helped the Superhero Fiction genre, but in fact, it has not come out of niche status. It was the same with Ready Player One, the lead RPG Game Lit book. The genre has grown significantly, but I don’t think it will ever be as big as the vampire thing. The market is just too niche. Join us for our free K-lytics webinar.

Encouragement Last week during lunch, totally out of the blue, Mercy, my 15-month-old daughter, had a seizure. She had no previous events and no family history that we knew of. My wife called 9-1-1 while she held my seizing daughter. As you can imagine, it was incredibly scary. The EMTs, ambulance, and fire department all came to the house. I was at an author event in the middle of a session when Margaret called. Normally Margaret messages me and rarely calls, so when I saw her calling, I knew it was a big deal. Thankfully I answered, and she said, “Mercy has had a seizure. I need you to come home right now.”   So, there I was, stuck in traffic, stuck at red lights, worrying about my daughter, and hoping that she was okay. Finally, I got home and saw an ambulance parked in front of our house. I rushed inside. Nobody was downstairs. Nobody was upstairs. No one was outside in the back yard. I was calling out for my family, but no one was there. I couldn’t figure out what was going on. Finally, I ran out to the ambulance, and when I opened the door, a paramedic was holding our newborn son. Mercy on the stretcher just shaking and weeping in a way I’ve never heard before. My wife and another paramedic were beside Mercy.   I got into the ambulance and were discussing whether we should go to the hospital. They said, “There’s a chance that this is a febrile seizure, which is common in toddlers. It’s not a very big deal. But there’s also a chance that it’s something else that’s far worse. We have to go to the children’s hospital to run tests.” Our medical plan doesn’t cover ambulance rides, so we decided to take her ourselves. But as we were taking Mercy out of the ambulance, she got stiff and shaky again. I’m not sure if it was from the cold or another seizure, but I quickly changed my mind. I decided to ride with Mercy in the ambulance because the baby was hungry. So, I told Margaret to follow us in the car after she had a chance to feed the baby. But I was not thinking clearly. A a children’s hospital in the middle of flu season is a terrible place to take a newborn. On the way to the hospital, Mercy’s fever came down. While we were sitting in traffic in the ambulance, she started to feel better. By the time we get to the hospital, my wife and I both realized we didn’t my wife coming into the hospital with the baby. So, Margaret ended up sitting in the back of our in the parking lot of the hospital for hours while doctors did various tests on Mercy. Inside the hospital, I played Baby Shark over and over for Mercy, hoping she’d feel better. Eventually, the tests came back negative. Mercy didn’t have any of the scary things that it could have been. And it turns out that she had contracted a virus called Roseola, which is a very common virus that young children get. We are thankful the tests came out negative, but the seizure was terrifying. The whole event was very disruptive. Eventually, we all got home, and Mercy’s doing better. One lesson that came from the whole event is something authors can apply to their writing. Normally, I feel like I’m pretty good at putting plans together and thinking through logistics. But in the heat of the moment, in terror and concern for my daughter, I felt like I was making nothing but sub-optimal decisions. I felt terrible for my wife. We both decided it wasn’t a good idea for her to bring our five-week-old into the hospital during flu season. But neither of us had figured that out before we left. If we had, she could have stayed at home in a much more comfortable place for her and Baby Tommy. Often our books are our book babies. It’s easy to get into that same frantic place where we’re so emotionally charged. We get so excited or so scared that we make poor decisions. There are a lot of con artists in this industry who are very greedy. They aim to scare writers so that they can take advantage of frightened people. One nice thing about a book-baby, as opposed to a real-life baby, is that you’re never in a rush to decide. It’s never a life-or-death decision. You don’t have to decide immediately. Any time somebody pressures you to make a rushed decision that is a huge red flag. There’s no reason you can’t sleep on it. In fact, you should. You should Google it and take a deep breath. In publishing, your book is not going to die because you wait. So, the one takeaway I have for you is to avoid making decisions in a panicked state.

How much do you love waiting?  I don’t mean the fun, anticipatory waiting like for the start of a movie--I mean the finger-drumming, “when’s it going to be time??” waiting.  I’ll admit, I’m not a fan.  But I’m getting better at it. In this week’s podcast, I tell a funny story about waiting as a fruit of maturity. I offer a releasing breath and calming mantra. We do get better with waiting as we age, but maybe that’s just because we don’t really have to wait much--especially not these days (thank you, Amazon :).  Most of us have been around long enough to know that with enough time and right effort, “good things come to those who wait.” But how about some of that deeper stuff?  How do you do with waiting for Your body to heal from injury, illness, or surgery? Anger to settle before engaging in an argument? Financial dips to rise back up? The right diagnosis? Clarity and wisdom in a difficult situation? Your estranged relationships to heal? These are tougher.  This is where we have to exercise that patience muscle. Or do we?  What if instead of requiring fierce determination and  great effort, patience was easy and beautiful?  What if it were there all along? What if patience were a natural outcome of your yoga practice?

Texans hand their kids footballs because the sport changes lives. Every year thousands of students enter college who otherwise might not have been able to afford school, or received the attention required to prepare them academically. Sports are a pipeline for higher-education, and once on campus these athletes exist in the highest of castes. Whether these athletes retain the opportunity to play professionally or not, their life is declared as overwhelmingly meaningful. Gamers on the other hand are seen as rebels at a loss. That image has changed with the rise of he $1B+ e-sports industry, which now offers the same life-changing-opportunities as legacy sports. But are these kids athletes? Can their practices really instill the same discipline learned on fields, courts, and mats? Is this just a fad or something that will alter the lives of its participants? Today's episode is with Austin Espinoza, President of Longhorn Gaming, UT Austin's e-sports program, and his path to do exactly that for the next generation of college students.
It's 2020, which means election year is here. Let's face it, elections can be overwhelming, from the grandiose national politics to local city policies. There's just so much to keep track of. But never fear, The League of Women Voters is here! Established in 1920 after the ratification of the 19th amendment, the League of Women Voters was created to help inform and empower women in the political process. Within the 100 years of the League's long history the League has established themselves as a non-partisan resource for the voting public.  From their helpful Voter's Guide to the new Vote411 website, the League has everything you need to be an informed voter. In this episode Kyle & Charlie sit down with the League of Women Voter's Austin Area about this coming election season, from primaries to the census and the general election. The two chat with Joyce LeBombard (President, Austin Area chapter), Quynhanh Tran (Community Outreach Chair, Austin Area chapter), and Grace Thomas (First Vote! Chair, Austin Area chapter) about the League's mission, their busy lives during the election and census years, and how you can become a more informed voter this election season.

We are doing something a little bit different today. I recently hit a podcasting milestone, so I decided to celebrate by sharing what I've learned reaching 100+ episodes. Phew! I can't believe I did it! My friend and MiloTree community manager, Paula Rollo, is back to help me share with you all some behind the scenes from the podcast.  Before we jump into the content though, I want to speak directly to those people who have been listening to this podcast for a long time because they’re interested in starting their own blog but they haven’t made the leap yet, for whatever reason.  Blogging is a great way to set up your online business, but the technology holds so many people back.  Well now, you don’t have to wait anymore!  MiloTree now has blogging start-up services. For a small fee, we will get your Wordpress blog up and running, with the plug-ins we recommend and your blog optimized.  If you’ve decided that 2020 is the year you finally jump in and start your business, let us help!  Just go to MiloTree and sign up today.  Why I Started This Podcast I have always listened to and enjoyed podcasts. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I even look for excuses in my life to listen to my podcasts.  When I started this podcast, it was because I went to Podcast Movement and took a course on how to start a podcast.  I came home and told my daughter I was going to start a podcast and she said, “No you’re not.”  I had learned that if you can make it to your eighth episode, you are more likely to continue creating content for your podcast.  I told my daughter I would make it to episode 8, and I did it to prove to her that I could! I wanted her to see how if you put your mind to it, and do the work, things will happen. My Favorite Part of Having A Podcast  My favorite part is that I am having an intimate, one-on-one conversation with someone that the world gets to listen in on.  I am not on a stage with a crowd of people watching me; I get to feel comfortable talking to someone as my natural self.  I can be my authentic self because I am focused on listening to the person I’m interviewing and responding to them.  I feel super honored to be let into people’s ears and I love meeting my listeners.  The Space This Podcast Fills I try to get guests who are going to have different perspectives on building online businesses.  I want to be really curious and ask questions about what people want to know. My audience is very sophisticated and they want to know the inner workings and tactics on how to build a business.  I want my guests to share their failures so that my audience knows what not to do, as well as what to do.  No one on my show is an overnight success. We share our struggles, the years of hard work it took, and the sacrifices we had to make in order to get where we are now. I am all about debunking the myth of the overnight success.  How I Plan Future Episodes  I usually fly by the seat of my pants episode by episode. However, I’m always looking for interesting people to interview.  One thing I like is people who build their businesses in unique ways. We all know that there are certain things you can do to build an online business, but I want to talk to those people who try new things and who discover new ways to find success.  My audience is very diverse.  I want to introduce new ideas about money, social media, etc., to my more experienced audience who need to be taking those next steps.  Helping New Bloggers I also have an audience of people who are just getting started in this sphere. For that audience, I want to help them get off the ground.  There is so much to learn about blogging and building an online business and it can be overwhelming.  That’s why my husband, David, and I started the BlogStart Service at MiloTree. We get it. We know how hard it can be if you don’t have experience in online business. Just getting a blog set up is a huge hurdle for most people. We wanted to help people overcome that hurdle, so we now have a service that will get a blog up and running in a very short time for someone who wants to get started but is held back by the technology required.  I want to build a path for the people who want to start their businesses but don’t know the in’s and out’s.  If that describes you, please join our New Blogger Coaching Group we are starting March 2nd. Our goal is to give you a roadmap to go from blogger to profitable online entrepreneur. Our coaching group will focus more on beginning bloggers, while this podcast will continue to do deep dives into specific aspects of the blogging business.  What I Want Listeners To Learn  I want my listeners to know that I want to help them. I am still learning too; we are all on this journey together.  To be successful on the internet we must all be continual learners, and having a podcast gives me the platform to ask all the questions I am wondering about.  My Message To You  If you enjoy this podcast, I want to say thank you. I am so honored that you make the choice to let me into your earbuds and that you trust me with at least part of your blogging education.  I would love to have you join my Facebook group.  I am trying to be in there every day, encouraging and offering tips and support for all of you. It is such a wonderful community of supportive entrepreneurs.  It is a dance. There are days where you kick butt. And there will be days when you feel too low to continue. You will question why you are even trying to accomplish this online business thing.  It is never as bad as you think, and it is probably not as great as you think.  You have to work through your emotions and know that you can still make a difference and grow. Tomorrow is another day. Always know that you are making a difference in someone’s life. Whether that’s a reader, a family member, or someone you’ve never met.  It was fun to do this episode for you all. I hope you learned more about me and my reasons and goals for this podcast. Now, why don’t you go right on over and join the Facebook group, and then head to MiloTree and let us help you with getting your blog set up or with some personal coaching?  Transcript for "What I've Learned From Reaching 100+ Episodes" Imagine a world where growing your social media followers and email list was easy… It can be with MiloTree!

You asked for it (well, at least one of you did), and so we are finally covering the listeners' choice that was selected from our 2019 Listener Survey! That's right, we're discussing Pascal Laugier's controversial 2008 film Martyrs (aka the most anti-spoiler film ever made)! Big thanks to listener Brian Conmy for helping us pull the trigger on covering this masterful and deeply upsetting film. Major trigger warnings for anyone who has never seen Martyrs, because this film is one of the most disturbing films ever made. That's not hyperbole!  Join us as we discuss what might be the most extreme example of white privilege ever put on screen (seriously, these people are so rich that they seemingly have all the time in the world to torture young women just so they can find out what happens after we die) and assign a few different readings to the film, including a very positive queer reading that might turn a few people around on it. We'll also try to answer questions that have followed the film since its 2008 release, including but not limited to: Is it torture porn? Is it misogynistic? Does it have a purpose? Why would someone make this endurance test of a film? Oh! And as an added bonus, both of us secretly watched the 2015 American remake without telling the other one, so we spend a little bit of time comparing the two films (hint: the original is better). Lastly, here are all of the articles we reference in the episode: The New Extremism in Cinema: From France to Europe (eds: Tanya Horeck & Tina Kendall) Films of the New French Extremity: Visceral Horror and National Identity by Alex West Martyrs: Evoking France’s Cinematic and Historical Past by Daniel Totaro Martyrs by Scott Tobias The Philosophy of ‘Martyrs’: Transcendence in Torture by Andrew Couzens Keep Doubting: Why Martyrs is One of Horror's Most Biting Critiques on Systems of Violence and Oppression by Angi Martyrs (2008): Movie Plot Ending Explained at ThisBarry.com Questions?

Ali Dineen is a singer-songwriter and musician based in New York City. She’s performed her original music from the American folk tradition at the Savannah Music Festival, the American Folk Art Museum, and the Brooklyn Folk Festival, just to name a few. Ali’s lyrics have been described as poetic and deeply personal. When talking about her new EP, Hold On, she said, “This album grew out of personal heartbreak, and the feeling of a collective heartbreak as we’ve watched the world descend farther into fascism and irreversible climate catastrophe… It took moving through heartbreak and disillusionment and grief, to arrive not at ecstasy or a belief that everything will be okay, but at the realization that life continues somehow and is resilient… no matter how long we’ve got, we need to love, and fight relentlessly for one another.” Ali was recently awarded a Helene Wurlitzer Foundation residency in Taos, New Mexico, where she’s spending the winter working on her next creative endeavor.

"I think it’s ok to be in a space of feeling lost at points in your life. That’s actually a great place to be." Two years on from our first interview, Episode 18, which I highly recommend listening to before you proceed with this one, I recently had the privilege of a tour of the new home and art studio of Roi James. It was great to have the chance to further the dialogue and talk more about Roi’s successful career, where he finds himself now, and where he might be headed. And just like in our first conversation there is no lack of vulnerably on Roi’s part, as he shares his thoughts about being in an in-between place, recuperating and settling into the rhythms of his new space, finding inspiration, and contemplating the necessity to take his whole life and artwork to the next level. We also notably discuss the likely reasons for his success, pricing artwork, portraiture, art market challenges, and we go a little more in depth about loving more deeply and how that manifests in his life. Portrait of Roi on the roof of is new home. Photo by Scott David Gordon Bio courtesy of Roi's website The Story Of My Work I was 28 when I realized I wanted to become a painter. Until then and to this day, I had never studied art nor had any formal training. I’d always had the “gift” and recall my kindergarten teacher showing my mother my drawings and expressing how advanced they were for my age. But art was not a realistic occupation as I’d been indoctrinated into the “tragic artist” mythology, that to become one was to lead a sad and ultimately unfortunate life. So quite by accident, at 28, I attended a life drawing class and within the first 30 seconds of the first drawing, in the most supernatural way, I was was transformed. It would be another seven years before I had my first gallery show. Between then I poured over books of the techniques of the old masters and immersed myself in tens of thousands of images, slowly developing a rich visual vocabulary. I became enamored with the painters Titian, Vermeer, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, among others and with the romantic landscapes of Claude Lorrain, J.M.W. Turner, and Caspar David Friedrich. It was the majestic beauty and drama in these artist’s paintings and the long tradition of disciplined study and technique that attracted and inspired me. It would become the holy grail of what I would hope to find in my own work. And so my early paintings were infused with the dramatic play of light on human bodies and landscapes. I achieved a degree of success with this early work which in 1998, allowed me to quit my full-time job as a graphic designer at Dell Computer and focus entirely on painting. Though I continued to work in the traditional style of layered glazing in oils, I was already feeling a pull away from convention and a desire to explore painting’s greater possibilities. Where it had been a hunger for tradition and discipline that established my foundation, I was now compelled by a meditative thoughtfulness in being present and a desire to release myself into the uncertain world of abstract and conceptual painting. This began a ten year transition away from one style and method and into the new. However, my interest in form and beauty never wavered. Even the method of applying layered glazes continued to instruct my new work, though from a very unique and self invented process. My new paintings are spontaneous and abandoned Meditations, appearing as quiet spaces or joyful dances on the canvas. My Constructs are architectural explorations of color and surface, simultaneously both painting and sculptural relief. Fundamentally, despite their dissimilar surfaces and the contrast to my earlier romantic period, this new work remains true to my commitment to beauty and form.
