Associate Producer Jack debuted in his first episode today at 4:29PM, weighing 7lbs even. I pushed him out with no pain meds - though by the end I was screaming for an epidural but it was too late. Jack was already on his way out. I have never experienced pain like that in my entire life. I can’t even believe I survived and I’m not being dramatic. Thank you all for the prayers and comments, I’ve read each of them and they carried me through. We can talk all about it in our next editorial board meeting. For now, Im gonna try to get some sleep (well, after some ice cream.) We did it!
Thanks for your feedback in yesterday's editorial board meeting. I ruminated on the topic and this is what I realized Russell Brand got the most wrong....
Just got back from butchering chickens. I watched the Russel Brand “censored” videos on the way (YouTube removed one of his videos for saying something positive about ivermectin). I’d like your feedback on it all as I prepare a video.
Sharing this comment on the Russell Brand video to show two things I discuss regularly: hero worship on the internet & how that leads to a similar environment as the one I left in corporate news. When audiences seek the messenger over the messages, emotionally attaching to a personality rather than digesting information with skepticism regardless of who’s saying it, it creates similar bias echo chambers where creators simply stick to safe topics, applauding their audience’s assumed heroes and attacking obvious villains.
When your 2-year old helps butcher chickens. 😬 Jack stayed far away so as not to be confused for poultry as well…But hey, now we have a freezer stocked with the fruits of our friends’ labor.
