JSON Column in Table not mapping correctly to flex table

Hi all,

I have a varchar column in one of my regular tables that has json data like so:
{"user"=>"x","newPortfolio"=>"false","tickers_added"=>"["BRK.A", "BA", "MORN", "VITSX"]","tickers_already_in_portfolio"=>"[]","rta"=>"true"}
I called this column "try".

I created a Flex Table (dwh.try_flex), and then copied "try" into the Flex Table:
INSERT INTO dwh.try_flex SELECT try FROM temp_table;

The problem I'm running into is that "try" is now my Key, and the values is the JSON string in the try column.

How can I parse the json from the try column into the flex table properly?
