THE PERSON BEHIND THE SCAM - Zoe Vs. Burning Man Ticket Scammers ROUND ONE
Hi everyone, Editor Emily here. I’ve been the editor of this podcast for the last three years and I’ve had the pleasure of watching the You’re Welcome with Zoe Nightingale community grow into such a loving, compassionate group in that time. Zoe is currently caring for a gaggle of Burning Man virgins, so I’ve taken over to bring you all the newest Burning Man scammer. This episode is a bit different. How does one use the Burning Man principles to cure the hurt in this world? Is the infinite power of love strong enough to help a negative outlook of the world and truly poor decisions? What if those decisions hurt your community or those you care about? In this episode, Zoe was contacted through Facebook by somebody calling themself Aishat, who was looking to sell a ticket to Burning Man. This started as your standard scam offering fake tickets but quickly turned when the scammer admitted their lie. Not only did they steal the name and image of a transgender woman, they have quite the story to tell. It’s not often you get the chance to speak to the real person behind the scam, hear their reasoning, and actually level with them about their actions. Despite this scammer actively targeting the Burning Man community and disrespecting the identity of this woman, we wanted to help them change. To the scammer: We don’t harbor anger towards you. We don’t want to get you in trouble. Anyone can change, your past decisions don’t have to weigh down your future. For those of you attending Burning Man, I hope you all have an amazing time. Check out the Burning Man section on Zoe's website for all her tips, tricks, and must-read guide to Burning Man! zoenightingale.com/burningman https://tinyurl.com/Burning-Man-Guide Music by: Noah Lampert - Wicked Games (remix) https://www.syncpodcast.com/ Edited by: Emily Armstrong https://ebrodtman.wixsite.com/emilylaurenedits

Insane Clown Posse - The Pain Games
My long lost series from the Gathering of the Juggalos from last August. To say that I've had a hard year creatively - would be an understatement. I think you all know how much I love podcasting. But the last couple years has been quite a rattling experience - and I wasn't able to figure out how to stay alive financially and support this little podcast of mine. When pandemic hit, I kept my apt...and went into hiding in California. Did I pay rent? Oh you bet I did not. Was my apartment way to expensive for me even with a job? YOU BETCHA. I thought I would have some sort of miracle bail out from the government - and I was wrong...Eventually I owed my landlord enough money for him to break my knees in the olden days, and to fix this - I had to sell everything I had - and go seriously off the grid to rebuild my finances and had to take job after job that left me almost no extra resources to support my passion - of podcasting. Not only that...but when I finally got my finances together and started really working again, I met the devil. Literally. High cheek bones, late fifties, head to toe covered in rhinestones, hair like rapunzel...and I fell in love...not romantically but with every single word that came out of this demons mouth. Now, I do dangerous shit all the time while podcasting. I meet strangers, I invite them into my life and world, sit in dark corners and let the floodgates of their past pour over me. This time however, this is the time, my luck ran out. I interviewed him three times, for over 6 hours, I thought this was going to be like my crowning achievement of truly enrapturing a life...turns out...he was a con artist, and a really scary on at that and the end of this left me and emotionally destroyed. I walk around with alot of trust in humans and in myself - and that my mothers white light will protect me from evil most of the time...well...after this experience I literally couldn't pick up my microphones for months or even look at the sound files. HOWEVER - enough is enough - I've never been one to let fear guide my behavior for too long, and after one million beautiful moments of spontaneous human joy and kindness since, I am ready to try this ONE MORE TIME. cuz....fuck it. You know? So here it is one of my lost moments in time - I'm not sure if I ever really left this festival. The Juggalos left a profound impact on my heart. THIS LITTLE CLOWN IS READY TO FUCKING GO. Wherever you are I send you endless light and love and deep deep luck to get through whatever hardships you are experiencing.

THE GATHERING OF THE JUGGALOS
HELLO! It is I, here to wish you a very happy thanksgiving, and in case you're hiding from your family in a spacious linen closet, I have prepared a small amuse bouche for your ear holes. I am finally ready to release some of the content I made at the Gathering of the Juggalos that I went to in August of this year. It had been two years since they had been able to gather and the energy was literally ELECTRIC, the Faygo was flowing, and the whoop whoops could be heard from every corner of the festival grounds. Now what is the "Gathering?" The Gathering of the Juggalos (The Gathering or GOTJ) is an annual festival put on by Psychopathic Records, featuring performances by the entire label roster as well as numerous well-known musical groups and underground artists. It was founded by Jumpsteady, Insane Clown Posse (Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler), and their label in 2000. Described by Joseph Bruce as a "Juggalo Woodstock" (Juggalo being a nickname for fans of the Insane Clown Posse), the Gathering of the Juggalos spans five days and includes concerts, wrestling, games, contests, autograph sessions, karaoke, and seminars with artists. I would define it as a place where straight men greet each other by showing one another the inside of the their tuchus hole...with some of the nicest people you'll ever meet - where you get sprayed with soda that is composed of toxic levels of sugar and yellow 5 and the shower lines are so long that you literally have this sludgey syprupy shit on your skin so long that you almost turn into a mutant lisa frank animal. It's the hardest thing I've ever tried to collect stories at, and the MOST FUCKING FUN OF ALL TIME. NO RULES. LITERALLY. I've never ever laughed so hard and met such interesting humans. Two thumbs WAY UP FOR THE GATHERING. I've been trying to go to this for 10 years. I went. I saw. Stay tuned for episode 1, dropping on Black Friday. THANK YOU TO KATE SIEFKER - this rockstar (and patreon fan!!) helped me edit this episode and you can check out all her work at www.katesiefker.com and on her instagram: @codec.kate You can always see all the video work that I do at patron.com/oralfixation Check out all my content on my website www.zoenightingale.com PLEASE RATE MY PODCAST - every star and review helps keep my little Thomas the tank engine running.

THE WOMAN THAT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER
Hello Listeners! It is I, here to apologize to you for my extended absence from releasing new content. Trust me, I've been working on it, but I have over 200 hours from the last year and I've struggled to revisit that time period for many reasons but mostly just lack of time. However, I have good news! For reasons I still can't comprehend, one of my favorite podcasters of all time, Nicholas van der Kolk from the sublimely gorgeous audio series Love & Radio, has come aboard to help me. My gratitude to him knows no bounds. If you haven't heard their work, check them out ASAP here. So I should have a whole series coming out shortly, with a master story crafter's help. THANK YOU NICHOLAS!! In the meantime I have been reflecting on how much this podcast has meant to me, and the endless joy and wisdom it's brought to my life. The funny thing is, the very first time I tried to do this, and I was so nervous and unsure of what I would even talk about, magic happened. I was sitting at my little folding table next to the steps of Union Square with my poster board that said "Free Sex Advice," totally terrified, and this woman sat down across from us and the next 10 minutes changed my life forever. Her openness, vulnerability, humor and unpredictable sexual desires created this magic portal between us and I feel in love with her, myself, the world, and the power of improv human connection Something that people probably don't know is that the only reason I ever made this podcast was because of my fearless editor and co creator of this...Jimmy Vallance. He was the person that gave me the courage to try to do something that I thought was impossible. He was the one who helped me buy the audio gear, showed me how to use it, and helped me edit for the first couple years of this herculean adventure. He changed my life forever, and I will never be able to repay his endless patience with me as I tried to find my voice...but I just want to say thank you and acknowledge him. So this is the very the very first You're Welcome episode, to remind everyone that no matter what your dream is, you can do it. You just have to fucking do it....and most importantly, that every person has incredible vast crevasses of love and strength in their core, all you have to do is look them in the eye and listen to them to see it. LOVE TO YOU ALL. This photo was taken the first time we ever sat down to edit this show. Time FLIES

The Late Night Special
Still unclear on how this happened, but I was a guest on a Canadian Radio Show called, "Show Gram," with Jim Richards last week and this is the fruits of that labor. I actually don't even know how/why I was asked to be on this show, for the host didn't seem to know anything about my work, but he soon found out, very quickly as I quietly turned the interviewer into the interviewee. Always greatful for a chance to share a bit about what I'm up to and talk about this new chapter in my storytelling career. And yes, I know. My podcasting game is off, way way off. But I am currently working on finishing my Mexico series, and it's a doozy. So sit tight, I've got a new episode coming soon where I try to save sea turtles from poachers and get to know a wonderful man, who works day and night to save Mexican sea turtles. What a mensch, lemme tell you! You can check out all my new stuff at patreon.com/oralfixation Check out the host's website at: www.jew.pizza (ha!)

Lets Go Smoke Psychedelic Toad!
Have you heard of psychedelic toad? NO? Where the deviled egg have you been? Comparable to the likes of ayahuasca, psilocybin mushrooms, and mescaline, this natural medicine comes from a rare species of toad native to the Sonoran Desert, Bufo Alvarius. They produce a venom known as 5-MeO-DMT: an extremely potent natural psychedelic. 5-MeO-DMT is about six times more powerful than its better-known cousin DMT (dimethyltryptamine). The 5 MeO is extracted by catching these slow fat giant toads and squeezing them like a stress ball until the toad’s toxic venom glands burst like high school pimple and then dehydrating the pus into a crumbly dry paste. You then smoke this in what would usually be referred to as a crack pipe with what looks like a mini blow torch and are then blasted off to the candy store of the universe. Shamans throughout Mexico and the southwestern US have been harvesting and smoking the substance for decades, but has recently become as popular as Tickle Me Elmo in December of 1996. Individuals that have taken the toad venom described their trips as being one with the universe and feeling “reborn," and a unique connection to god and collective consciousness. Users experience prismatic colors, euphoria, sacred geometry, and recursive patterns. After inhalation the medicine often leaves users as mobile as roadkill and as responsive to questions as a tween on their iphone. While I was in Oaxaca City, I found a woman who was administering Buffo ceremonies and decided to bring my two besties Dr. Zandra Palma and Jordan Lejuwaan to see just how far this rabbit hole goes. What followed was completely insane and this episode was recorded during the ceremony. These medicines should not be taken lightly, taking them requires users to go into it with the intention to heal. It's not a drug, it's a religious experience. So, without further ado, I present to you Zoe vs. Toad, round 1.

RIP Party Monster
It makes sense to me that Michael Alig, the notorious Party Monster, King of the Club Kids has passed away on Christmas. When I woke up to this news a million different feelings washed over my body...but mostly it was deep sadness. Addiction is a thing that claims lives every second and something that has blackened many parts of my life. Goodbye MIchael. I will never forget you. This is a re-post of a live show I did with him in 2017. I met Michael shortly after he was released from Prison for his 1996 murder of Angel Melendez. For some background, this is the same man whose life that the 2003 movie Party Monster was based off of. He was a brilliant Pied Piper who was able to create a social movement that swept over the nation calling small town rejects and societal misfits to join he's legion of worshipers called the "Club Kids." Reviled by some, worshiped by others, he's like the trump of 90's. As someone who intimately knows the New York Party scene, let me tell you the kind of charisma and raw unique creative chutzpah this takes. It can only happen with a brilliant, ruthless visionary with a calculator brain. Every single person I know whose above 35 got their party flippers wet at Limelight, or Tunnel. HE wasn't a to start monster, he was a God, for years. Then he fell, like Icarus, into the abyss not be be seen or heard for 17 years. He was in solitary confinement for years, and managed to stay on heroin, due to the prison guards slipping him heroin into his sell with his food. So in 2017, I was able to host a live show at the Marcy North and interview him about his life, speak with his family and friends, and provide some light into what a world soaked in heroin and solitary confinement would be like. We spoke endlessly, about life, prison, addiction, redemption, his art, he's dreams and his nightmares. Michael is a rainbow of colors. He has a kind of brutal honesty through his humor that can be sharp and cutting, while being dull and blunt. He reminded me constantly of the Cheshire cat from Alice and Wonderland, both hands pointed in opposite directions whenever I would try to ask him about difficult subjects. We are all chasing a different white rabbit that is represented in our different addictions, whether helpful or harmful. We are all playing hide and seek with the ultimately elusive meta concept of "happiness." We are all constantly scraping up and crashing against each other, harming ourselves and others to varying degrees. The question becomes not if we will harm others it's merely when? Subsequently, how can you ever atone, when the repercussions of your mistakes leave lasting scars on the ones your love, your community, and the world. Furthermore what's really tricky is even if you’re absolved judicially, how do you forgive yourself? I don't claim to answer any of these questions. All i can do is ask them, and when I make mistakes try to put one foot in front of the other, find news ways to live my life, as my mother always says, with gentle loving kindness. Throughout this journey I kept two quotes in mind: From My Neck So Free The Albatross fell off, and Sank Like Lead Into The Sea Dorthy: OZ we're you frightened? Oz: Frightened? Child you're talking to a man who's laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom, and chuckled at catastrophe, I was petrified Thank you to Zev and Gadi for allowing me to do the live show at their beautiful Marcy North Hotel in Williamsburg. Thank you to David Herman, and Emily Brodtman who helped me weave this story together. Songs: Neil Diamond: Damage Done

Is A Pearl Necklace - The Perfect Holiday Gift?
Happy Holidays everyone! I would be merry, but I am Hebrew... just kidding..! I long ago got over my anger about being a lonely Jewess on Christmas and have embraced a happier outlook on what always seemed to me to be the most superficial gift based pagan nonsense imaginable...so in that spirit.... I have a holiday treat for you right in time to slide into your Christmas trees DM's. It's a compilation of my favorite, most uncomfortable moments that I recorded (mostly secretly) of my parents. My parents were both born in 1944, and grew up in very proper, Super Jew families. My mother to me always seemed like a person who got transported directly from a sock hop and never quite fit into modern times. She never said bad words, never talked about sex, never talked about anything remotely off color...and I was born...hmm how do I put this, a red eyed, spikey tailed devil creature...it's taken me a long time to become more like my mother and whats weird is the more I become like her, the more she seems to become like me! Apple vs. Tree...boy, mother daughter relationships are tricky! But my parents weren't as innocent as I imagined, and over the years the let slip that they too had a bit of a sordid past...good thing I was always recording them and was able to catch these moments and preserve them in little amber audio clips...hurray! So, I have literally 100's of hours of us teaching each other over the years..and yes, I will be making more of them because let's face it, they are the best of me, and they make me laugh so hard I can barely breathe. Wherever you are in the world, I know this is a very bad, no good, terrible time for families...and I send you the biggest hug and the advice my mother always gives me when I'm feeling blue... just put one foot in front of the other, take a deep breath, and continue to act with gentle loving kindness to the world around you. This too shall pass. I LOVE YOU MOM AND DAD THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING - I am sorry I am/was so obnoxious, thank you for loving me despite me. Music - I'm a Lonely Jew on Christmas Instrumental - Matt Stone and Trey Parker Follow me! @drznightingale www.zoenightingale.com More photos and videos will be posted in my website of me and my family struggling to find reasons to like each other over the years!

The Panty Dropping Pediatrician
Introducing, Usama Siddiquee! A gloriously raunchy, bright eyed and extremely bushy-tailed comedy superstar - who was born in Canada and raised in a part of Texas that probably could very well have inspired scenes from Deliverance, and raised a Muslim - so you can imagine he has a particular view point on what it takes to make it out alive of middle school and succeed it in this racial utopia we call the United States. I met him when he was doing stand up at a socially distant comedy show at Cooper Park in 30 degree weather, and I thought his particular brand of comedy and crowd control was so impressive I decided to invite him to my home and find out just exactly how far his rabbit hole goes down. AND DOWN WE WENT. Off like a herd of mentally challenged sea turtles trying to lay their eggs on particularly steep sand dune, we tackled many topics such as rubber gloved, direct eye contact handies in public, not having literally a pot to piss in/crashing in crack homes in the tuchus hole of Brooklyn to save money....barking like a rabid chihuahua for comedy shows, where the payment for your thankless work mirrors Spanish inquisition torture...making your father have slow fat tears run down his cheeks/having your mother throw pots at you, and all the bloody sweat and long nights that come with go after the world's most unforgiving profession. I adored him, and you will too! Enjoy! You can follow him at @Usamastandsup Check out all his youtube clips of his stint on AGT here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMkiML-uFGU And listen to his podcast, Mango Bae here: https://open.spotify.com/show/57jiIA07ChxbtWz0sjwKi1 As always you can follow me @drznightingale My website: www.zoenightingale.com Happy Holidays errrrybody! xoxxoxoxoxo Music: Noah Lampert - check out all his work at www.syncpod.net

America, FUCK YEAH!
Greeting and salutations my fair weather friends, apologies for my absence, but I needed to take a break from my own brain and reorient my north star. However, I'm back! This is my first humble offering, coverage of the best day of all time, the day that Joe Biden officially won the presidency, and NYC erupted into actual flames of celebration. In my life, I have never seen this kind of joy. The moment he won, I swear to you, squeals, shrieks, honks, pots and pans clanging, laughter, screams, sirens all instantaneously rolled through NYC like a thunderous cloud blanketing every ear drum in jubliant glee. So, I bought 8 mid priced champagnes, put on a red white and blue outfit, painted stars in my face, put on my FUCK TRUMP NO LUBE camouflage trucker hat that I made in times square in 2016, powered up my recorders and hit the streets. I must have gone to every bourough in the city. I was completely wasted by 12 pm. Like first day of freshman year, keg stand, girls gone wild blatto blasted. So, please expect the timber of my voice to be, how do I put it nicely...like a phone sex operator who smokes newport 100's back to back while verberally jerking off married men from Kansas. I'm not proud of it, but I yam what I yam, and unfortunetly for you, this is not my best work. What's worse is that I did like 100 more interviews only to realize that my card had been full the whole time. Just sloppy journalism all around. BUT, this was just the most beautiful day. The dancing, the joy, the tears of relief made the air electric and the day finalized in a burning man like mega rave in McCarren park where we danced until the sun came up. It was magic baby. Anyway, the goal is not to go to brunch. The goal is to continue to fight for the world we want to live in and cleanse ourselves of the last four years, try to eek out a little dignity and restore our country to some semblance of the dream it is supposed to represent. Keep fighting, stay vigilant everyone. All eyes on our you Georgia, make us proud. PS: Shout out to my loves Sean and Cass from the Very Ape podcast who are featured on this episode.

I Didn't Get Arrested!! Love/Hope/Protest in NYC
Well, just my luck. Depressed and defeated, I took my microphones to Washington Square Park to see how my fellow New Yorkers were coping with the election results. It was a beautiful fall day and New York was A buzz with farmers markets, art, live jazz, poets and artists all converging to lend each other moral support. People were organizing for an "count all votes," rally that was incredibly peaceful. But in mere moments turned into a blood bath. No where is safe. I am so fucking sad. Even if Biden wins. HOW COULD IT HAVE BEEN THIS CLOSE. OOf. It hurts, it hurts so bad. The worst part is I somehow tricked myself that this time of quarantine was going to do something to the collective fabric to inspire compassion for your fellow countryman. I am so fucking bored of racism and intolerance. Aren't you? AREN'T WE ALL. Ouch. Ouch. Ouch. We'll, here we are. There's literally no where to go but up. Started from the bottom and now we're...where. All I can do is keep trying to spread love and laughter in my wake and continue to support light and love and good in this word and have faith that enough of us are out there fighting the good fight. This is life or death. This is biblical. This is fucking crazy. Don't lose hope. We just have to take a breather and start all over again. This doesn't end with a Biden win. The senate is still republican, the world is still full of bipartisan vitriol and meanwhile the world is literally burning. Sending everyone as much love as I have in my bleeding, crumpled heart.

This is What I Get For Bringing My Mother to Burning Man
My mom decided to sell our home, and while it may not seem like a big deal to most, I FREAKED OUT. I knew it was bound to happen sometime. When covid hit, my mother was visiting Santa Fe, a place that had always made her heart feel full. The house, that we've spent 20 years in, was sitting, mostly empty, waiting for our triumphant return. My mom has been really careful about Covid, and I've only been able to see her twice in these last 6 months and this for me has been really super duper tough. I need my mother. I need her all the time. I need to hold her hand and wake up next to her and know that she's padding around the house at 6 am in her silk nightgown and Terry cloth robe, reading the paper and drinking decaf. This house of ours, was a new start. After my father was officially out of the picture, we had sold my childhood home and moved into this one together, to start a new chapter. This one was just one for the two of us, my siblings were long gone, and we turned this page together and I proceeded to make so many new fun memories and also sit with some really painful ones. This was our space, our place, and we navigated my teenager years and all the angst that comes with it there, together. I loved this house. I feel like the memories of it will grow softer with time but the feeling of always having a home never will. Thank you mom, for everything.

If They Told You, You Would Cry
Introducing Natalie Cooper. The founder and principal of Uncommon Schools in Camden NJ. Camden has long suffered from poverty, high incarceration rates, and lack of opportunity for its residents. However, it is a city of tremendous resilience, character and love, and it’s a city working hard to improve the quality of life for its residents. There are many ways in which this city is rising, and one of them is with the help of the Uncommon School Camden Prep. Uncommon schools is a network of 55 charter schools across the east coast. Four of those schools, Camden Prep, are located in Camden, NJ. Camden Prep serves over 800 students in grades K-9, and will grow to serve grades K-12 by 2023. Even though 98% of the student population qualifies for free or reduced price lunch, Camden Prep has proven that circumstances do not determine destiny – in 2015, Camden Prep was ranked the highest performing public or Renaissance school in the city of Camden and has retained that title ever since. During these challenging times, Camden Prep is working to build partnerships to ensure our students achieve continued success on their path to and through college! Natalie is my family, my friend, and a warrior for Justice, and ally to all races and has worked tirelessly to try to help stop inequality at the very earliest stages. I called her back in April, to see how she and her school was handling Corona Virus and what I heard filled me with pride for her and absolute devastation for the reality of what these kids, and her school were up against. This is the help that helps. This is the work that changes lives. These are the people that should be making a billion dollars for the work they do, but still struggle to survive financially. Teachers should be the most celebrated profession of all, and they need our support, love and ears.

No One Gets Well in a Cell
Introducing Emily Galvin Almanza - a drop dead gorgeous bad ass warrior for truth and justice. She's been fighting against the lies, inequalities and traps that exist inside or "system of justice," for over a decade. Now, I thought I knew a lot about what it actually takes to be a public defender, the person who is called to represent anyone that cannot afford their own lawyer. But I HAD NO IDEA just how deep and dark the rabbit hole goes. This Zena Warrior Princess badass super hero has taken what she's learned in years of fighting the blatantly racist carceral system and figured out a way to do the help that actually helps. She founded partners for justice, a all hands on deck wrap around service that caters to people who get ensnarled in the bogus, unfair, predatory legal system and helps make sure that the ramifications for being arrested for being Black on a Tuesday don't destroy peoples entire lives. I learned SO much from her and I think that beyond defund the police, the thing we really need to be figuring out is how do we repair the limit-less harm that has already happen to someone once the police enter their lives. The trickle down effect of the over policing of Black neighborhoods further traps people in systems of poverty effects millions of people in the US and has been ripping the very fabric of families and communities across our nation. So sit back, relax and delve into the wild and beautiful mind of Emily, one of the most impressive humans I've had the pleasure of meeting in quite some time.
