She's Alive!
Play episode · 27 min

As Dolly will tell you, so much of who she is - her creativity, her music, her stance on life - emanates from her faith, but what exactly is that faith? The answer is deeply surprising. In this episode, Dolly tells a story of finding God in an abandoned church filled with X-rated graffiti.  And she speaks of her plans for how she'll be remembered after she’s gone—how her voice will live on for the next 50, 100, 200 years.

Eli Pariser: How We Can Actually Use the Internet for Good Things
Amanda Palmer presents an intimate conversation with Eli Pariser, recorded July 24, 2019 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Eli Pariser wants to make technology and media serve democracy, instead of the other way around. He is an author, activist, and entrepreneur who became executive director of MoveOn.org in 2004, where he helped pioneer the practice of online citizen engagement. Eli is also the co-founder of Upworthy, a website for meaningful viral content, and Avaaz, a global citizen's organization. His book, “The Filter Bubble: What the Internet Is Hiding from You” not only introduced the term “filter bubble” to the world, but also kicked off a conversation about online discourse that has only become more pressing. He is the author of two TED Talks that focus on social media’s responsibility to the greater good. He currently co-directs, with Talia Stroud, the Civic Signals Project, which aims to support the creation of more flourishing digital public spaces. Check out his recent piece in Wired about how to create public spaces online. In this episode we talk about how we should attribute people’s actions to their situation instead of their character, controlling your environment to change your behavior for the good, applying urban planning theories to The Internet, inviting in the things you want in your life, why it is so hard to be an artist in America, having empathy for people you don’t agree with, the struggle to raise children with the right amount of determination and grit, and how shame is a cultural tool to create conformity. @elipariser https://www.elipariser.org TED: https://www.ted.com/speakers/eli_pariser Civic Signals: http://civicsignals.io/ Wired: https://www.wired.com/story/to-mend-a-broken-internet-create-online-parks/ No ads.

PLOT with Jim St Germain - Ep 023
If you remember the amazing conversation we recently had with Edwin Raymond, you might recall the stories about his childhood friend 'Buffet'. Today we are joined by 'Buffet', whose real name is Jim St. Germain, to hear his inspiring story about arriving in the US from Haiti, and how he was able to transcend the harsh realities of unsafe neighborhoods and incarceration. His book, A Stone of Hope, has been personally recommended by Barrack Obama and his work in the community, with the PLOT, an organization he founded with Edwin, is nothing short of incredible. Jim tells us about how he had to learn the ways of the street in order to survive, the legal troubles this led to, and the experiences he had in the juvenile penal system. He makes sure to underline the importance of the mentors he was lucky enough to meet on his journey and his story is such a great example of what is possible with the right role models. Jim was able to complete a master's degree in public administration, which led to his community work in nurturing future leaders from difficult circumstances. Jim has faced many trials and has overcome an enormous amount of adversity and is another reminder of using the biggest obstacle in one's life as a means to find purpose. Be sure to listen in with us today to hear it all! *Key Points From This Episode:* * Memories of beautiful Haiti, makeshift soccer games, and flying kites. * Jim's first jobs running errands in his neighborhood and collecting fares. * Lessons that Jim learned early about what it means to be in survival mode.  * The period leading up to Jim's move to the US and the work that his grandfather did as a butcher.  * Experiences arriving in New York and encountering a shocking new environment without English.  * How Jim adapted to a harsh situation and learned what it took to survive.  * Differences in food practices in the US; Jim's amazement upon arriving. * How poverty punishes families twice —  disempowerment and suffering. * The street code that Jim adopted and the realizations that he had about a proactive approach.   * Jim's brother, 'Butter', and the differences between their personalities.  * The skills that Jim developed around reading people quickly. * Where the nickname 'Buffett' came from and its meaning.  * The array of jobs and hustles that Jim did; dry-cleaning, selling weed, shoveling snow, and more! * Run-ins with cops, tactics on the corner, and evading arrest. * Jim's first detention sentence and the luck he had with people he met in the system.  *Links Mentioned in Today’s Episode:* Light Watkins Jim St. Germain on Twitter PLOT A Stone of Hope Edwin Raymond Home Alone The Wire Mayor Bloomberg Governer Cuomo Just Mercy The Pact The Autobiography of Malcolm X Dreams From My Father
