"And that kind of impulsiveness that I already had and that lack of boundaries and that complete lack of fear would disappear even further. And so I was in situations where I was accepting random drugs. I was hitting random people's blunts, taking random pills, you know, asking to push the boundaries physically during sex. And waking up in the morning being like, what the fuck have I done? And that classic anxiety of everybody hates me. And I hate myself. So I decided to give it up. I was stone cold, sober, from alcohol, for 8 months, and it was crazy. It felt like putting myself on an island with nothing. It felt like I was naked on an island. And that was the best thing I possibly could have done. It introduces you to you. It does. And it was refreshing to be forced to get in touch with my own vulnerability. It was also refreshing to see how much I actually didn't need booze. But I think the best takeaway I got from that was that it's not that I couldn't control my drinking, it's that I couldn't control my ADD. And I couldn't control my impulses. And I couldn't control. Again, the boundaries. And eliminating that label of alcoholic from the equation allowed me to explore what it really means to have adult ADD much deeper with my therapist and look for help with that both with medication, but also with yoga and meditation and journaling and routine and getting that under control was the first step for me in really digging super deep. And this is going to sound ridiculous to some people listening, but the big moment for me was actually watching Paris Hilton's documentary in 2020. It does seem like it does. And I know it does. I'm self aware after all that therapy. But long story short, the documentary is about how she was sent away to a reform school when she was 17. Kidnapped out of her bed in the middle of the night taken to Utah and locked away in this place for 11 months where she was severely mentally and physically abused. Really? Never told a soul about it until the documentary, including her old family. And she gets really deep into how experiencing that trauma and then what was it two years after she got out of school experiencing the trauma of having her much older boyfriend, released their sex tape without her consent. She was like, I became a different person. I essentially rose out of my body and never came back. And watching that play out in front of me was the first time I had ever seen a narrative that looked like mine that I knew was mine. And granted, I had thank God, never gone to an abusive boarding school, but that concept of going through childhood trauma, having authority figures fail you, having people who are supposed to give you unconditional love, fail you and not understand you and have that result in this kind of fuck you, attitude, I'm gonna move towards the mask. Right. 'cause to process this. Right. How do I even begin? I don't even know it's there. Exactly. And as a woman, you know, hyper sexualizing yourself so that people focus on the way that you look and not the fact that you're dying inside, that you're fearful inside. I mean, God bless Paris Hilton, like I never thought I would say that, but watching that documentary was the first time I ever saw a public narrative that looked like mine. I was totally incapacitated and that's what really cracked me open. I sobbed for a week straight and so awesome. Isn't it wild? How that happened? It's like your soul taken a shit. Wild, exactly, and then after that is when I started dabbling in hallucinogenics, which was also incredibly helpful. And which ones? I took acid and mushrooms a couple times over the summers of 2020 and 2021. Profoundly lovely experiences because I was really ready for them. And I imagine you were in a safe environment. And you're in a fucked up place. Yes. I did it by a pool in a upscale beachy area of New York. The most comfortable safe environment you could possibly be in, but you know, I think when I think about my teenage and young 20s drug experiences versus those, I was ready for them. I was open. I wanted to answer and I was ready to just kind of let it all go as opposed to using it for escapism. So I feel like I'm ranting, but that's really how I kind of got to the place that I'm in now was giving up the booze, realizing what was left without all those distractions. And then motherfucking Paris Hilton. When you were talking about impulse control and you said that when you would be physically intimate, you would push boundaries. What did that look like and did that change when you gave up booze? What part of that are you able to say, this is a part of my real sexuality or that was me acting out in some way? Yeah. I feel comfortable talking about it. There's really nothing I'm uncomfortable talking about. For better or for worse, thanks mom and dad. But I would ask for violence, choking, hair pulling, rough play, generally speaking, which are all still things that I like every once in a while, but I was asking for those things from people I didn't know or people I did know, but not well. That trust that you really need to establish in order to successfully play out like S&M fantasies was not there. I remember I was on a date with this guy and we were at a bar and I had a couple drinks in my system and I was just like choke me. In the middle of the bar, you know, we weren't even kissing and he reaches over and he starts to kind of lightly do it and I'm like hard or hard or harder until eventually I pass out momentarily. And I mean, I thought it was hilarious at the time, but things like that, you know? If you could go back in time, be your buddy sitting right next to you. Yeah. You can't interfere, but you can talk to you. Yeah. What would you have said? To be honest, I'm really grateful for those experiences that I went through. I think that had I not experimented as much as I did, and I hadn't pushed boundaries as much as I did. I wouldn't know nearly as much about myself. And knowing that I did have those violent tendencies, but that I was looking for it in the wrong places, suggested to me that maybe I did want to explore rough play during sex or I did want to be a submissive. Now being in my first healthy relationship in four years because we are so trusting of each other and we are so open and communicative and accepting, we are able to play with that dynamic. Such an amazing feeling. It is the definition of safety. Incredible. So to me, so. Intimate, there's no other word to describe it, but I never felt so seen and so close to another human being than when there's that open communication about what do you like? Here's what I like, no judgment. It's so freeing. Yeah, it's unbelievable. And there's so much safety that comes within asking to be hurt. And now I realize, oh, hell yeah, point a leads to point B I spent so many years being taken advantage of and feeling as though I was being physically and emotionally hurt and just preyed on without my consent, being in a situation where I'm asking to be put in that submissive position is a deeply therapeutic experience. And I don't need it all the time. Every once in a while, it is something that tickles my fancy, but to be able to explore that with somebody who's gonna give me a kiss and be like, I love you at the end of it. I think that's a common misconception about any sort of bondage or rough play in sex is that a lot of people who aren't educated perceive it as being violent and there's something wrong with you. Exploiting your partner or there's a level of desperation or a lack of self respect that the woman has, but the amount of respect for yourself you have to have in order to ask for what you want can not be overstated. And for some people when they're living in that place of, I have to imagine this thing that gets me off, but I can't share it with that person. It's such a lonely place to be. You know, horrible. And I know there are some people who the reality of it is. They're in a committed relationship. Maybe they got kids. And they kind of hinted at it and it's been shut down by their partner and that is I don't know what to..

"Selfish? Am I like a bad feminist, a bad woman? I usually don't associate with any of these overarching stereotypes of what a woman should and shouldn't be. I'm complex and that's that on that. But I think when you're in this situation, especially a situation that you know so many women work so hard to get to through IVF through prayer through Chinese medicine and acupuncture, I mean so many women are so desperate to get pregnant. I got pregnant in one of the only times I've ever had unprotected sex. You know what I mean and for the record, I took plan B and it didn't work. That happened sometimes. Did you try playing city? I did you have. I should have called you. I should have called you and asked for the plan C but no, I think that that the guilt that I felt was mainly like, why am I so empty? Why am I like bottoming out like this when I'm in a position that people are dying to get to and that kind of feeling of emptiness really remind me of what my depression used to feel like when it was at its lowest. And so I'm very glad that that only lasted for a small period of time. But more than me feeling selfish, it was just like questioning why I didn't feel anything at all. How did you just switching topics now unless there's other stuff you wanted to share about that? No, I feel like we covered that pretty well, yeah. When did depression become an issue in your life and it sounds like it's kind of under control now? Yeah, I worked really fucking hard to get it under control. And you know, again, something I've been very candid about when talking about my privileges. My parents were able to afford college my now 28, like 23 years of therapy, I was in therapy for as long as I can remember just like classic downtown neurotic Jewish things, like you're born, you go into therapy. Not all for the same set of reasons when I was younger, I was afraid of mascots and men in masks. And I was also really afraid to shit. Hilariously, my brother, who was born 5 years after me, I had the exact same problem where he was afraid to shit. We went to the same child psychologist who cured both of us, but we laughed like in public bathrooms or even if. No, just like poop period. Yeah. What was the fear? I don't know. I don't know. Like my mom tells me that we were afraid that it was gonna like hurt that we had like a bad experience one time where it hurt and we didn't want to experience that again. But what are the chances that I went through that and then 5 years later my brother went through that and we laugh being like obviously it's my mom and dad's fault, but you know my parents are a little bit more traditional, so we put under the rug. They laugh it off. You know, oh, everything's our fault, right? That's a whole different thing that I've never actually really gotten into as an adult, but I took a break from therapy for many years and then when I was 15, I reentered for depression for anxiety, fear of the dark. I had mismanaged ADD for so many years, and I didn't get that under control until I was like 24. Very, very recently. I fucked school up. I was a terrible student. I couldn't focus. I was just kind of dismissed as like a drama queen who cared about frivolous things and not about academia. But for as long as I can remember, I feel like I've just been crawling out of my skin. And too big for myself, you know, the image that I always use with my therapist is you're pouring coffee into the teak into the coffee cup and it overflows. And it keeps overflowing. I'm just keeps pouring and it keeps overflowing. I'm too much for myself or I describe myself as the wheel of fortune. I have so many colors, so many interests, so many different shapes and sizes. I've always felt like I fit in everywhere and nowhere. And I've talked about this a bit on other podcasts, I went through puberty really early. I was like 9 when it started. Oh my God. And I became a version of what I look like now by the time that I was you're how tall? 5 ten. 5, ten. 9 or ten. It didn't happen that early. The height kind of finished going into high school, but like huge boobs. Oh my God, those were there by the time that I was 12, fully. And I was always taller than all of my classmates, my face shape was more mature than all of my classmates and, you know, I mean, a hypersexualization started so, so early. Bye. Peers, adults. Peers, teachers, my parents, Friends, walking down the street, to school, subway stations, men in unmarked vans. I mean, it felt on escapable before I even understood what sex was before I understood what it meant to be a woman in a sexualized body all I knew is that I woke up one morning and I just wasn't safe. And people were treating me in a way that I wasn't asking to be treated. And even which happened soon after, when I resorted to wearing oversized clothes everywhere and really trying to cover myself up, being a tall woman with really thick eyebrows and an angular face. I mean, people would just not leave me alone. So obviously that was just plain terrifying on the walk to and from school, but within the academic environment, there was all of this pressure on me to be a role model, be a leader, act older, just because I looked older and it created this set of expectations that I simply couldn't meet. I had learning disabilities that nobody knew about then. But I quickly learned to be eloquent. I read a lot. I talked a lot, and I was like, okay, I need to be able to talk myself out of any situation, whether that's in an act of self defense, or to seem like I know what the hell I'm doing when I really don't. So I was sped through childhood, not because I didn't have a great situation with my parents at home. I mean, as with any family, we totally had our bullshit. And it still is there even to today. But primarily, the issue was, I just never had a chance to be a kid. And I defined childhood as being free of worry, free of expectation, free of anxiety, about just kind of being able to think that the world is like a magical place. To feel safe. Never have I felt safe in my life. And I think that going.

Joe Biden 'Confident' His Son Didn't Break the Law
"We're reaching a very interesting situation with regard to Hunter Biden because the question has been posed to Joe Biden about Hunter Biden and Joe Biden is essentially said a Hunter Biden did nothing wrong. Nothing unethical and number two Hunter Biden quote never made money in China. Wow. Never made money in China. Now these statements are flatly false. And yet The White House, this is the problem with being a Kate bedingfield or being a Jen Psaki, you are a sort of administration parent. And by that I mean of the administration and essentially set up is down or why it is black, you have to go out there and give reasons for why that's the case. So your job is essentially one of being the propagandist for the senile dotard and The White House. And so you've got The White House staff now essentially repeating with a straight face, Biden's brazen lies. And all of this is happening while there's an ongoing investigation by U.S. attorney David Weiss in Delaware and the media is reporting not only locally, but I've seen some national reports that Hunter Biden may well be indicted. Now, think about this. This is not only talk about this as a shock for The White House, a shock Phil Biden, well, not really a shock for Biden. Biden's shock is we got caught, what? A wall of protection somehow never worked. But think of the think of what a repudiation this would be of the media of The Washington Post, The New York Times CNN, all these people have been saying they've been first of all saying that the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation after that they said it's a non story, but I've been thinking about why The New York Times and The Washington Post have rushed to confirm the Hunter Biden laptop in recent weeks. And I think the reason is it's not because they are they've become journalistically honest momentarily. No, they're just the same deceitful snakes that they've always been, but they've realized if there's an indictment, this is gonna make us look
'The Silencing of the Lambs' With Author Michael Brown
"Michael Brown, my friend, welcome. Great to be with you, Eric. Thanks for the memories. You've got a great story, which we're not going to get into today. We've talked about that many times on the program before, but you have a new book out, and unfortunately it's very important. The book is titled the silencing of the lambs, the ominous rise of cancel culture, and how we can overcome it. So what do you say in the book, roughly speaking? There really is an attempt to shut us up to silence us to cancel us to marginalize us and to put us in a place where we can not speak up and get our message out. When I say us, I mean followers of Jesus with conservative biblically based values, I'm not paranoid about this. In fact, a large part of the book is strategies as to how we can overcome. But this is real. I mean, we're in a situation today where it's not just a matter of we disagree with you. But we have to cancel you out. You know, in China, we'll talk about someone with disappeared. They use it as a vowel. They were disappeared. They suddenly, they're not there anymore, or under Soviet Union. Some of this disappearance, they're blanked out. They're blotted out. That's what's happening in a different way. Barry Weiss has spoken up about this. She was in New York Times journalist, a liberal feminist quote, married to another woman and she found the atmosphere in New York Times for her to be so toxic that if you raise a narrative, you are not just criticized but you would cancel she called it social murder and it's so extreme now that you have voices like the irreverent atheist Bill Maher or reverend Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman or actors like Alec Baldwin or sports personalities like Dana White and they're all raising their voice against this Nick Cave singer songwriter in Australia said that cancel culture is mercy's antithesis. So you do one wrong thing. 15 years ago, something in your useful days. It comes out today. You can lose your
Russians Killed in Action Higher Than US Count
"The latest in Ukraine, this is from a military writer named Michael Weiss, whose work I've admired. He said the picture that shared with senior European intelligence officials differs from the U.S. government assessment, assessments, especially on Russian losses. From our estimate, the KIA killed an action figure on the Russian side, was anywhere from 7000 to 9000 a few days ago, according to the senior European official. That's much higher than the estimate that we have. Bad morale, lack of manpower, huge, he says on the Russian side, they're calling in reservists offering money and contract to people to go and fight. And they are relying on conscripts conscripts after they said they weren't going to rely on conscripts.

"There's a way that we can respond to other people suffering that doesn't get depleted and used up is the thought behind it. And interestingly, this is a thousands of years old intuition from wisdom, traditions, right? The idea that you could participate in contemplative support of others in its massive suffering. I mean, there's so many stories all the way back to wisdom traditions canons about people who did that. So the idea then borrows on what does it mean for us as people to learn to respond with compassion rather than empathy, what is the difference? What does that feel like? How do we train ourselves? How do we train our physicians and healthcare providers to do that and then, therefore, how do we solve this problem of compassion fatigue? So this is a discourse I've been a part of since I was in grad school right after September 11th, studying all the rise of burnout and compassion, fatigue, in healthcare and first responders and all of those kind of studies and I think the implications for us today are fascinating, no matter what our line of work is in the pandemic, all the uncertainty and pain and anxiety that we were all navigating this lens of hitting a tipping point with that where we can't engage skillfully anymore. So what does that even mean for me is, you know, a parent navigating schools closed and changes in workplaces and yada yada. So back to your question of that compared with burnout the way I would think about it is we need to both from the individual side, train people to understand how to respond with compassion rather than empathy, which in some cases means retooling, taking on feeling the other person's pain and having a responsive way of engaging with them, but that has an understanding of a type of boundary in support of both people, the person in pain and the other person. So it doesn't become dehumanized and cynical, but it has a wisdom of understanding me getting overwhelmed by your problem. Isn't going to necessarily help you, especially if I'm here to be in a role where you need me to not be crying alongside you about your diagnosis. You need me to hold this space to be able to be clear. That's a really interesting idea there. The empathy versus compassion. And I kind of want to go deep down that hole, but I'm going to resist. But I have one question on it, which is, do you find often that people earlier in their career start from an empathy perspective? That's what comes most naturally, then one of two things happens either they move into quote unquote empathy fatigue, and they become cynical, or they figure out how to do this with compassion and they move into sort of this wise healer mode..

Has America Become a Country of Cowardice?
"Here, reading to you from Barry Weiss about what is happening in this country. The we got here because of cowardice we get out with courage. And she gives examples here. People fired. The Vermont school principal fired because she said she supports black lives, but not the organization Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter is a hate organization. If you support it, you support hatred in this country. Undiluted, left wing, Marxist hatred. Okay, period. Everybody knows that. No, not everybody. Most people know that. Most people know much of what the left stands for is a lie. But you can't say it. I say it. Just as I say that it is better to have natural immunity than to get a vaccine. I've never said people shouldn't get a vaccine and lied about. I was lied about in The Washington Post in the CNN play for you to see and then way of Chris Cuomo's way of distorting what I said. Lying on CNN comes so naturally that I don't even believe they're aware of the fact that they lie. And I will play it for you. This is what this is what we have entered. So she gives example another one of the Hispanic utility worker in San Diego fired because somebody said made a white supremacist hand gesture. He was in fact cracking his knuckles out of his car window. You're guilty. If one person on the left says you're guilty. In this ideology she continues Barry Weiss. The quality of opportunity is replaced with equality of outcome as a measure of fairness. If every one doesn't finish the race at the same time the course must have been defective. Thus the argument to get rid of the SAT. Or the admissions test for public schools like stuyvesant in New York or Lowell in San Francisco. In this ideology you are guilty for the sins of your fathers. In other words, you are not you. You are only a mere avatar of your race or your religion or your class.
Bari Weiss Is the Type of Democrat That Used to Exist in America
"Are the people on television at all ever self aware at the damage they're doing to American society will Barry Weiss is one of the few that deserves to be platformed. Again, I don't agree with her on everything. In fact, I'm sure that if we have different views on abortion, in different views on transgender stuff. In different views on I don't know, pick your certain issue. I'm sure that I'm much more strict on immigration than she is. Whatever. But she believes in something that will help keep this country alive for the time being. She believes in something virtuous. Freedom of speech dialog differences of opinion. Individual initiative, she believes in liberty. Barry wise is the type of Democrat that used to exist in this country. Very wise is the type of Democrat that used to say, you know what I agree to disagree. You might have a difference of opinion, but I'll still allow you to speak. She is different than Brian's Brian stelter, who's the type of leftist that we're gonna have to encounter ten at University of Vermont, where at University of Vermont, they say, oh, we disagree with you. Therefore we want to shut you up. Barry Weiss would say, I disagree with Charlie. Let's see what he has to say. It's a completely different approach.

"Barry Weiss That is that goes without saying a lot of you say of course. But even just saying that the world has gone mad, is now a controversial statement according to CNN. Barry Weiss is a former New York Times reporter. She's smart. She's tough. She has a really good sub stack. If you don't know what substack is, it's a rather interesting decentralized platform is that one way to put it where you kind of get people you can kind of get what they're saying as they say it and support them. I got her emails. I don't agree with everything she says. She kind of strikes me as kind of an old school moderate liberal, but she's really courageous, and she speaks about issues that matter and she now has a new article that has come out this last week that is making the rounds. I want to read from it. Where she wrote about how the whole world has gone woke and has lost their minds and she says, why are moms like me being called domestic terrorists? She reposted this article from Maude meran. She says this, quote, she quotes, I am a mother of four a criminal defense attorney and a lifelong liberal who is deeply concerned about the direction of New York City public schools. I've been outspoken about my views, along with an untold number of frustrated parents. For that, the FBI is considering using the Patriot Act against me. Let me explain. Last month national schoolboard association and umbrella organization representing thousands, thousands of local elected school board officials, sent a letter to President Biden. The letter in poured The White House to enlist support of Homeland Security FBI Department of Justice to investigate the threat adding that the alleged crimes fall under the purview of the Patriot Act in regards to domestic terrorism. Barry Weiss has covered a variety of different issues from why people are suing UCLA for not wanting discriminating against their students and she's kind of getting a reputation as a former New York Times reporter as someone who's actually willing to tell the truth. Someone who is willing to speak clearly and courageously.
Bari Weiss Owning CNN's Brian Stelter Is 2 Minutes of Pure Television Gold
"So Brian stelter, asbury wise kind of like, oh, Barry wise, you say the world has gone mad. Why do you say the world has gone mad and she owns stelter to his face. Very Weiss. Is able to say so clearly, here's why the world has gone mad. Why are you not doing anything about it? And then he challenges his, oh, well, it's not like you're not allowed to say those things. Play Barry Weiss, some of the most beautiful two minutes on television of CNN being called out to their face. By the way, this is a moderate liberal. She is not a conservative, she's not a leftist, this is someone who's on the center left who worked for The New York Times. Listen. You write, there are tens of millions of Americans who aren't on the hard left or the hard right who feel the world has gone mad. So in what ways has the world gone bad? Well, you know, when you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for The New York Times, talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad. When you're not able to say out loud and in public that there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad. When we're not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting and it is bad. And that silence is not violence, but violence is violence, the world has gone mad. When we're not able to say that Hunter Biden's laptop is a story worth pursuing the world has gone that, when in the name of progress, young school children as young as kindergarten are being separated in public schools because of their race. And that is called progress rather than segregation, the world has gone mad. There are dozens of examples that I could share with you in which you often say you say a lot of knows this. And you say we're not allowed to lose the people stopping the conversation. Who are they? People let work at networks, frankly, like the one I'm speaking on right now who try and claim that, you know, it was racist to investigate the lab leak theory. It was. But I'm just saying, when you say a loud, I just think it's a provocative thing to say, you say, you say, we're not allowed to talk about these things. But they're all over the Internet. I can Google them. Everywhere. I've heard about every story you mentioned. So I'm just suggesting, of course, people are allowed to cover whatever they want to cover. But you and I both know and it would be delusional to claim otherwise that touching your finger to an increasing number of subjects that have been deemed third rail by the mainstream institutions and increasingly by some of the tech companies will lead to reputational damage, perhaps you losing your job. Your children sometimes being demonized as well. And so what happens is a kind of internal self censorship. This is something that I saw over and over again when I was at The New York
Bari Weiss Tells Brian Stelter How 'the World Has Gone Mad'
"The hour, want you to hear there's some pretty powerful exchange between bari. Barry Weiss, this is pretty interesting story. She was once one of The New York Times is top writers. But as registered points out, she was harassed and bullied by other employees of the highly woke New York Times. She finally resigned. And then she spilled the beans on The New York Times toxic work environment, and the complete intolerance of non left wing thought. She's not a conservative, but she just does not somebody more of an independent writer as I understand it. So listen to this exchange she had with Brian stelter over the weekend on CNN. You know, when you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for The New York Times talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad. When you're not able to say out loud and in public that there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad. When we're not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting and it is bad. And that silence is not violence, but violence is violence, the world has gone mad. When we're not able to say that Hunter Biden's laptop is a story worth pursuing the world has gone that, when in the name of progress, young school children, as young as kindergarten, are being separated in public schools because of their race. And that is called progress rather than segregation, the world has gone

Author Ruth Wisse on Her New Memoir 'Free as a Jew'
"Have Sitting with me here in the studio the author of a book funny title. It's free as a jew. A personal memoir of national self liberation ruth weiss. Welcome to this program. Thank you i. I really can't just start talking to you. Because i have to let people know with whom i'm seated and Who is the author of this book. You have an extraordinary life. We're going to talk about your life But you won the national humanities medal. Which is an extraordinary honor. Utah yiddish literature at harvard for a couple of decades. And as you approach your eighty sixth birthday. I too am approaching my eighty six birthday forgiven. I can't see it as clearly as you can. But you've decided to write a book which is a a memoir. But it's called free as a jew. We should start there. Why is it called that. And then i want to get into your story I should have a soundbite. Answer for it but i haven't yet. Maybe this will get me there I love freedom. it's It's a very great value of mine. And i love being a jew and the two things are very much connected in my mind. I think there's a kind. There's an idea of freedom that comes with being a jew and You know this is not a moment when the jews are particularly popular not an american culture as they used to be once and So i i wanted to lead with that. And it's also because writing the memoir. I didn't myself. No what would emerge as being the most important theme or the most important connective through it. So free as it begins for me. You know in childhood with The most important part of our jewish year And that is the celebration of passover and the reading of the passover haggadah every year. Now i didn't grow up in a very religious family but somehow my parents Kept the passover holiday in the way that some people latch onto one thing in their religious lives in their national lives. That is so strong that it almost makes up for everything else. And the passover holiday was like that and it's all about
Professor Ruth Wisse Explains Why Liberals Are Less 'Pro-Israel' Than Conservatives
"I'm talking to ruth weiss ruth. I'm gonna play the role of eric. You play the role of ruth. You've written this book. Free as jew. You have a background teaching at harvard. you eventually became a conservative. You are pro israel. I think that needs to be said. Why is it. I get the impression that religious jews conservative. Jews are pro israel. Liberal jews tend almost to be pro palestinian or very worried about israel In the way that the harvard faculty was worried about the rotc. Well i mean well the connection you're making is exactly right. I think Why is that. well. I don't put it so much as pro israel that i cannot for the life of me understand how any decent human being could be anything but pro israel. The great question is why did the arab world Why did the arab league organiz in nineteen forty five against the state of israel. You tell me and why. I have my theories. Well i have many theories. I wrote a book about that too. Actually called jusin power Trying to explain anti semitism. And which i define as the organization of politics against the jews and my sense is that you always have to look at the function of anti semitism. Who does it serve. And what purposes does it serve and it seems very clear that the only glue of the arab league in nineteen forty five was common opposition to the state of israel and that's still in some profound terrifying way. The only actual unifying element on a political level within that terribly disparite and and and really frac fragmented and fractured world. So it plays a very important part among arab and muslim societies and unfortunately lately it has been imported into the united states of america quite successfully and driven home

"Replaced the question. Well the i mean. Obviously john and barry do come up right away. Who thinking of. I got nothing like what i what i generally run into us to ask this question. Because specifically on the the black lab was like who is the the black representative for for pop culture and people could say maybe a rapper. Here their bus ie it's from baltimore anthony us from baltimore the basketball. Yeah it's like in terms of like the the breakout pop culture. Success is nobody really liked immediately comes to mind unfortunately saying there are some great filmmakers from baltimore that i would know as somebody who really follows a guy named matt porterfield who i absolutely love. There's a guy named theo anthony. Who's absolutely amazing. He's gonna blow up but they're certainly not household names. Edward norton is a great actor but he's stopped acting. Unfortunately josh charles is another one by man it's This he's right now for possible. Alleged hidden runs. And he's not want to. I don't i don't really have the answer. The question i was like. Who do you. If i was still a huge galls me of course but my ego is just so miniscule these days though now but yeah i think that's the thing and i think it's important that i think a lot of people leave. I think that's part of that. Issue is and true. It's like being an analyst or critical thinking exercise. You do the five wise and it's like why are people leaving this reason. Why is it that reason and so on until we get to. The root of it and especially with some people have interviewed different artists. And so on. It's like well. I could do better here or i could do better here. What have you always come back. But they usually don't and that's the thing for me when it comes to the pop culture thing. 'cause i reached out to a guy wanted to get this custom fitted cap. And he's like in terms of congress. What's baltimore and i was like. I am not putting a crab benefited gap and he had these really cool. New york has all of these different pieces of iconography and pop culture a representations and i was like you don't really have anything it's already going to be oriole's hat. What can i put on synonymous with baltimore. That really gets us over. That looks cool. And i always run into that especially being here as long as i have. It's like what's the thing we poppin know what you're thinking about like people who have left like you take somebody like t t the artist right like just when she was starting to sort of blow up in baltimore. She moves to the west coast. You know and chief. G made him a great movie about club music in baltimore to ban. Animal collective work which kind of bums me out. Riley you see them as like being described as a brooklyn band and it's like baltimore on the other hand beach house moved to baltimore but yeah it is. It is depressing when our best and brightest move onto the coast because so much is happening here in baltimore. I always i grew up in new york actually And the one thing i love about baltimore is that you can really do it here. Like anything you wanna do. You can do it here if you wanna put on clay you can put on a play if you want to go to a poetry slam and read poetry reader poem you can do that. And it's accessible and away and you can make a name for yourself here in baltimore which i absolutely love. But some of you want to move beyond baltimore. Why would you wanna do that. But if you intend to leave baltimore naked bugs. Yeah yeah so same. And i'm glad we have that inherited some. Maybe something for for people kinda growing really consider so thank you please shamelessly plugged. Where could he find you. Club the social media plug baltimore magazine all the good stuff i think i feel like i have already but i will say okay. Baltimore magazine. com is is the magazine's website tons of new content all the time including my movie reviews. Are there but better. Still subscribe to the magazine. It's so cheap to subscribe a cost like twelve bucks each individually. She was five ninety. Nine twelve issues for twelve bucks. So think about that it really. If you pick up the magazine twice a year ahead and subscribe It's nice to have the the object of the magazine in your hands but we should check checkout baltimore magazine dot com and then Yeah you can check me out on social media on twitter on at max.

"That's that's what i said. I love that is great so this this is this one is. It's was interesting one from you work. What are some of your other creative interests and talents or talent. You mentioned jealous. So what are some of your other including. Then what are some of your other interests in town question used to be the weirdest talent you guy but i decided to change it a little bit to be you know unless ought about it yet. The cello is really my other main thing. You know i was a music major issues. Double major and i almost considered becoming a professional jealousy. Not really. I'm like right at that level underneath where one could become a professional leader by was it would be a lot of sessions music. A lot of gigs. Were just running around trying to make money. So i am glad i didn't pursue it but one thing that i continue to do is continue to make music. I play chamber music. I play with hopkins symphony orchestra And i love playing cello. And what makes it so great for me is that it's a pursuit without working Because so much of what i do. In my job is words. You know writing reading writing reading and writing reading. Even when i watch him films just words and the cello. You're you're activating different part of my brain. Activating a different side of me. Creativity not somebody who meditates or does even does yoga but when playing cello. It's like. I'm in a different kind of zone almost And it's really it's therapeutic for me to play cello. So i would say that's like my other. You know number one habit but but my other talent but my other thing that i'm really into is really into twitter. Anybody can follow me. At neck's girl do follow me. You'll see that. I tweet a lot I remember harris saying like. Oh i used to do this column and it was like blogging before blogging. Once twitter came along. I was sort of like. Where is this bit by in this place. Where i could. I could say clever. Little things put down my opinion about literally everything. Because i tend to have an opinion on everything yes gonna come to mama do love twitter although any reasonable person also hates twitter because twitter can be a very destructive force in the environment aachen and also can be. There's people who tweet often make a joke. Never tweet because you can on twitter One false tweets at it can blow up your entire life. Basically you know and so it's amazing that we all keep tweeting knowing this knowing that one joke that you know go south and indexing your fire alienated from your emily and yet we all keep your so how To tweet at. I also huge sports sports fan which See the banner in the background. Yeah yeah. I mean that's Not not everybody would expect that about me. Because i am sort of this more kind of intellectual away but Absolutely love basketball. My favorite sport is basketball. I about the nba and college basketball. I love hana's like papa baseball but kennison and basketball right you. I watch a lot of sports too. I had a really by interesting experience. I think last time actually travel the apart and went to philadelphia in it was. During the mate of america made in america tours i think jay z in some rappers. Were there and it's just dirt bikes all types of nonsense and we on their two year before so she was like. Where's it hotel that we stayed at the rosa so we just fought a hotel with our luggage and stuff to the top level direct. Rosaiah watch tennis. And i was like this is great all screw that let's get some refrozen frozen actually loves tennis. That's what we did. It was great zane already out. It was like there was just a year when you could not escape for his day. Now we go to a bar you order a frozen. They're going to be like we don't have that gene anymore. Pass as like ha. I'm on is i. I loved great so as far as like people have baltimore related questions so as far as like people lay filmmaker specifically writers. Have you trying to capture baltimore in a fictional sort of way. Where do you think they acceler. Where do you think they fall short. I mean you know the problem. Unfortunately with baltimore is that it's not that something like the wire is not an accurate depiction although we now kind of realized that maybe a little too easy on the police department interest. But a lot of what the wire depicts Is is accurate. And it's important and you can't turn away from it and missing that we struggle with a lot of the magazine like you want to acknowledge the reality of baltimore. The ills of baltimore. There's so much great stuff happening in baltimore. And it's it's this constant. It's sort of like this delicate balance. Where you wanna celebrate. What's great about baltimore and lift up baltimore without burying your head in the sand about what's bad about baltimore so i feel like most nobles about baltimore are mostly dealing with crime and murder and stuff like that and that's disappointing. I just wish there were more. You know baltimore romcom things like that. It doesn't have to be about crime and drugs in racks and murder but that stuff is in baltimore as well. You know you as that anybody who is not from baltimore cannot do a baltimore accent. Thank you thank you can somebody addison. It sounds terrible. I wanted to say this. Because i thought it was funny. Based on the conversation thus far so that that that series falcon and the winter soldier they were in baltimore for the second episode. They were like what is happening. A couldn't resist. You just see like a police car this mean. It's a really a bummer. That we are sort of synonymous with urban blight. When you and i were people who live in baltimore we see how vibrant city is You know what an amazing arts community there is. What an amazing activists community there is food and all of that But at the same time. Yeah there's a lot of problems you know there's just a huge issue with Sort of the the the l. the white l. They talk about in baltimore and data. But that's my biggest wishes that fills about baltimore captured more of the totality of baltimore. Obviously i love john. Waters donors is it. I love movies and any journalistic baltimore want. You will have interviewed. John motors because he makes himself unbelievably.

"The difficult thing about being a film critic is you're watching bill extra closely right mean you have to. Because you're going to be writing about it and telling other people about why they should or shouldn't watch it So that's sort of close read of the film if you will and you're taking all these different things into account the direction and the cinematography in the acting in the everything but you also want the film to wash over you just the way you would if you were going in not as a critic just as like some person off the street watching the movie the to me. The true are of film. Criticism is finding that balance. We could really appreciate the film. I always say on the terms that the film is you know putting out there but then also you're able to have that extra level of analysis where you can write about it and think about it. I've definitely had people say to me about reviews like you know what he took. It so seriously lightened up. It's like that's my job. You know you can go. Just lighten up and have thought but my young actually take this film seriously but that being said there were definitely some films that are just meant to be silly. Edible film is successfully silly. then it's a success rights. I think of the name of the full feral movie that was on netflix. About the euro. Visions down jesse. Nah okay. so that's a really silly outrageously silly film but done so well and it. It's job is to make you laugh. Its job is to make you happy. It's intentionally silly and it's successful at that so it's really just a matter of like. Is the film doing what it set out to do. It is doing well. And then the next thing i this sort of acknowledged by owed biases that i'm personally drawn to or not personally drawn to. Sometimes i'll say like you know. I'm not really the biggest fan of say Superhero movies with dr size. Think is either stink here German middle aged woman. Give me a break air. All but then. Sometimes i'll see one. I'll say like Even if you think you're not gonna like this kind of movie you will or if you love this kind of movie. You're definitely gonna love this if you don't you probably won't like it. You know what i mean more. Even if you love this kind of movie you may not like is what because it's just bad so i really do try to sort of also thinking terms of the of the reader You know like definitely make it. Clear like yeah. This isn't really my bag but if it is you might like it. But even better is what i say. I am not really a fan of you know like let's just say on reviewing get might take. I don't really love horror film. It's certainly not my favorite genre but even if you think you hate horror film this is important amazing film that needs to be seen about what your tasted film it so that was really fun when you can do that. I think it's certain by pieces of culture that you like it. I remember it was a specific is music. But i remember a specific reviews. A guy only reviews like metal and alternative rock and they had him review rap. Almost almost he's not qualified. Sonically sure but this is not his john so already it's baked in and it's like have that disclaimer. That this is not my thing. And i will say i i. I'm a i'm data analyst by trade so definitely you know the analytical thing where you were speaking my language there and sometimes when i'm watching a movie and i finally i have this like contrary and kind of vibe to it and it's like let me get did. Let me put that aside. Leave that outside of the theater. I was out of my seat. But sometimes when i'm watching a movie and if this just okay that was not good. That was loose like something technically speaking. It's like i had this term. I like to thrown around call. Lucy and i was like look. This does not work. Because i get a lot of flack of about in terms of like superheroes for sake of argument. A lot of flack about like Like anther and it's like oh well. You can't say that. I was like well. I am and i'm going to say it twice now. I didn't like elements of that third act. It doesn't make me kill the entire movie. But it's like i'll point out specifically what i don't like what i think could have been could have been different than what it would have been more effective but going back to what she said. And i think that's something that people really need to key in on on on is. What is the movie trying to accomplish. What is the movies out to do if this is just a ridiculous movie and it's a goofy movie and you're not into those. Why go because that's what the movie is attempting to be. So you already not gonna like it or have these biases towards it then sometimes for me as a critic i consider myself a feminist. And someone's i'll see something in a film that i find sexist or perpetuating negative female stereotype or even negative male stereotype so then the question becomes. What is my job as a critic. I'll give you a perfect example. Is a film out right now. Called nobody it. Stars bob odenkirk now on a certain tribal level. This is a john. Wick esque film. Actually loved john wick but not as good but but similar in terms of like just a guy kicking. But if you're going to enjoy watching guy kicking. But for especially bob voting urban sort of playing against type to a certain extent. And he's a great actor but when i watched this film to it was sort of really leaning into toxic masculinity in a way that i found really troubling so certainly written a reviewer i was like yeah let kick ass action films. This is nobody the film for you instead. I kind of broke down. Why the i found the film had toxic masculinity and why. I think that's something that people should be aware of cautious of. It's a destructive force in the universe. Of course inevitably. I got some rush back on the review. I got some people calling me a killjoy. And stuff like that but you know i kind of feel like you're still aren't as many women. There are many more but they're obviously you know three four times as many men who are writing reviews right now. I do think it's important for a woman to give that perspective. Although i would think guy would also want to resist against toxic masculinity but it is just finding that balance sometimes. Because you don't want to be the gold you don't want to be. The person used the kill joy. You know so i kind of made it clear in the review that this film is going to really appeal to teenage boys. Do better teenage boy do that back. I mean if you go in there. Like i read a review about about that somewhere and it was like in terms of tears john wick at a much higher level in atomic blonde is at a higher level than this. This is is fine. And he didn't go to in-depth in it but it was just like like let's say a thirty second review kind of thing. It was like we're going to be very brief here. It's like not as good as these other to like in the same like it kind of but not as good as these other two fine by and also a fellow that really would benefit from being seen in a theater. You know i mean i. Obviously i used as a film critic. I tend to see to at least two films a week I used to see them in theaters. And i really do miss going to a theater and i also think about that as a critic.

"I'm your host. Rob lee and today's guest is the editor in chief of baltimore magazine and a film and pop culture critic. We have max weiss. Welcome to the podcast for having me so we were talking before we got started with this. And i just wanted to talk about what you do. Which background is in a very like high level like have you. What's your background looks in. Which will work is with baltimore magazine. Yeah so i actually didn't go to journalism school and didn't really even know that i wanted to be journalists. Necessarily i always knew. I wanted to write and i also love to sort of analyze things in college. I went to bennington college this little. Rt liberal arts school in vermont with six hundred students and i majored in literature and music as a double major play cello as well. And then when i graduated school we moved to baltimore. My family and i ended up getting a job at city paper and so my first real job was city paper. Used to have that mammoth calendar. Do you remember that thing. Salon ages and ages and ages while i basically put that thing together. That was a bitch. That was a lot of word kid out of out of college. So i did that for awhile and then a paper. They eventually hired me as a staff writer and i was doing. I did feel started. Doing film reviews. I actually had always really wanted to do fill review because it combined my love of analysis which is something that i really honed as literature major. You know like breaking down a text with my love for pop culture and film which I've just always naturally had. When i was a kid and this was before your time but there was the show siskel and ebert it. Was these these two guys you know. Like sort of Sweaters and corduroys in empty theater arguing back and forth about movies and remarkably the show. Was that a big hit right. And that was the famous two thumbs up and was through them. That i kind of realized a risk can be like a job and i would always imagine myself arguing. Who do i agree with. What point of view. I tape so so i really fell in love with criticism through that and also on my parents had a new yorker magazine's in the house in the great pauly jail. I was inspired by her writing the liveliness of her voice so one of the city paper and the opportunity came up for me to do criticism because they regular critic at the time. Could make a screening. I jumped at the chance. And i did a good job with it and they just kept giving me more and more. So that's sort of became one of my major side gigs. And then also you paper. I started doing a column now. This was the nineties right. Okay so this was before the internet or the internet was very nascent at the time so it existed but it was in its very early stages and the the column that i did was called nice girl and i always say that it was blogging before blog. Basically it was just my diary. Life is a twenty something in baltimore Ends about city paper as loved working at citi paper. And i'm actually really sad. City paper has now folded. I think that an alternative newspaper is so important to the fabric of the city. So son right now like you open up the baltimore sun. I have tons of ad for me. Admiration for a lot of the people who work there but A lot of it is from associated press tribune in its local reporting. And so you know we really disc that truly locally based reporting anyway so then. I got a job at baltimore magazine. It was almost like i graduated from city paper. Which is like more of a college kid kind of aesthetic to baltimore magazine. Which was like a grownup ghastly. Definitely and it's i really was a writer of always been a writer but one thing if you talk to somebody who's in editor. They always start out as a writer. all right. all editors start writers. And if you wanna move up what they call the mass ted of a publication you sort of you start as a writer then you become an associate editor. Then you become a senior editor of you. Become a managing editor and vitaly. Now i've reached the top of at a jeep and yes. I've been in the magazine for almost twenty years. I know it's crazy. It's been there. I mean i have my life basically you know and you know i really love doing and Really proud of the evolution of the magazine in the years. That i've been been there particularly in the years that i've been in charge and i have this amazing staff small staff but just so talented that works with me and Yeah we create the the magazine that you see today. It has really changed a lot like if you were to baltimore magazine. Ten years ago it was all what we call service journalism which is tough this top. That top jams top salons tom. You know restaurants at everything we still do some of that but we do a lot more a substantive journalism as well I mean i like it. All right. I think the what i what i opened up another city regional publication in a different city. I wanna know about the lifestyle. I wanna know about the restaurants i wanna know about the arts and the culture and that i wanna read long reads pieces that you could really dive into and learn more about the fabric of the city into. Hopefully we have that good balance going at baltimore magazines. Don't we try to do one of the few magazines. I read and definitely is one of those things i use the biggest seen like i know what i'm talking about because when it comes to specifically the food the food side of things like the food journalism and okay. I'm gonna keep stay up to date on this. Was this new place. Oh this issue came up and people. Think i'm the person that knows where all the food places are like. Thanks agassi i my sources. The food is amazing in baltimore. And there's just so much that you can write about it because there's so much diversity in the fruit scene and it tells you so much about the culture and who we are as as people here in baltimore. It's grown in leaps and bounds. I mean it used to be like couldn't get a good bagel in baltimore. You couldn't get a good loaf of bread. You couldn't get good at you know sushi. Thai food korean food is just so much great food out there now. So so it's really fun for us to cover that scene in I think the term. But i do consider myself a foodie so i've seen a few different so so putting on your critic had on what are maybe two to three skills that you rely on the most as a critic and i kind of i think you touched on a little bit. You jerk the curtain a little bit there. When it came to jazz the the side of it being personality already is a writer and already has an interest in like breaking things apart but still had a bit yeah.

"Was going on sixteen jr chile man another episode of the aftermath on the air man. Another interesting interview with interesting guests man so talking to flat. Irv david wiseman is a flat earth. Like i guess we call it expert so we better get all incidence man. I'll be ready man. What's going on is shaun. Koen gonna right all right so it's good to have you on the show man appreciate making time to come and talk to us man. Yeah no problem. let's get into it. Let's let's do that man you know you've got a story man and we got some questions for you about this day. This flat earth thing. I mean all our lives. We've been taught that the earth was glow and i'm guessing at one point. You believe that the earth was with row so how this how did this become an area of interest and can you describe what you saw who you talk to change your mind. Yes i'm just like you guys man my whole life you know we've been trained and taught. The earth is a globe. And i was doing conspiracy podcast and people started sending me flutters stuff dave have you looked into the flatter than i thought. They were joking like he can't be that stupid and they kept sending more and more. And i wouldn't watch it. I wouldn't click a single video. I am going to waste my time. I ban people from our social media for being so stupid even suggests a thing but then another researcher forced me to look like dave. You have to look at this. And i said okay. I'll just disprove it. That's it you know. I'm pretty smart guy and for two weeks. I started looking and more. I looked more ridiculous. The globe model got. And then i started doing experiments myself like i gotta i gotta video this myself and i went out and bought up. You know thousand dollar camera with a super zoom lens and our optics have outgrown their lies. We can see too far so that right there shows you that the earth is not a globe. That's how it started. Here's the thing. Flatter is not a pancake floating in space like bill light. Lying guy with the bowtie wants you. Think you guys there you freeze or did i free time. I'm here all right. Good good name bill. Ninety two they'll lie and then we have Lying box from england and we have Neil degrasse in high priests of scientism. They want you to believe that we think the earth is a discount space with other around planets even flat planet's not true. Nobody thinks that what the flatter is is. It's like a pond. Think of a pond. What does the pond upon his the low spot in the land. Where the water accumulates and the edge of the pond is where the edge of the pond is where the land is higher than the water right. That's the that's the. That's the container of the pond. Large bodies of water at rest needed container and that container is the shoreline that surrounds the world pond. That's known as antarctica. Antarctica is not a continent at the bottom of the ball. it's the shoreline of the world pond period. All of the continents are surrounded by water. But all of the water is surrounded by land right so you can sail around way you want. You can go away from the center that south and you don't get to the edge of a pancake. You get to the edge of the pond. That's it you can climb up on article. Which is the highest on earth by the way big sense since we live in the antarctic basin. And what's out here. it's off limits. No one's allowed to go out there ever until the year. Twenty forty one. So what's so significant about the year. Twenty forty one yellow sixty years from the one the sixty years. The treaty went into effect in nineteen fifty nine. They had to pick a number. I don't know if there's an significance in that but they're gonna kick the can down the road another sixty years if we don't wake up and figuring out by then just just to make sure i get this instead of an article. Just being a large landmass. You're saying it is the land mass and rounding correct. Just lift yourself up and look down. The earth is it could be an endless plain. We don't know right what's beyond their well. No one's allowed to go beyond this pink line which is sixty degrees south. Now you can spend ten twenty thirty thousand dollars go for three day vacation to this little peninsula right here which is gigantic by the way bigger than many countries and there's penguins and icebergs and they'll bring you out here and they'll show you a ceremonial south pole but you have no way to verify because compasses don't work and gps doesn't work out there. Okay and then they kick out. That's it no one's allowed to go out here except like the elite. Go out there. For some reason john kerry during the previous election went there on election day. When or what was going on down. There are out there. Maybe it's all frozen admiral byrd in the late. Nineteen fifties flew out. There said there's land bigger than the united states and no human has ever stepped foot on filled with resources. There's maps of antarctica without any ice on it their stories that maybe beyond antarctica. There's more territory extra tara. Tara is land territory. Extra is more so if somebody lived out there and they came to visit. What would you call them an extra tara extraterrestrial and you know where they live. They live in the outer space janda antarctica. So they're telling us what's going on extraterrestrials come from the outer space beyond antarctica. That's my belief. I approve of that. Nope and lead into the next thing. I was gonna ask you because that was a lot of lot of information that that. What's like the level of resistance that you get from people who just right off what you're saying. It's just like talking conspiracy. But then on the flip side how receptive do you find some people when you talk about. It all depends on the person it depends on. You know there's people that are so indoctrinated their egos are too big or their their security. There's too insecure to a willing to change their entire foundation of the world. You know the foundation of person's world is you're spinning out of control on a spec in random in a an infinite universe where you're so insignificant it doesn't matter and an asteroid can take you out. You're spinning out of control lost in space moving trillions of miles every decade. And you know. You're in a distant god or godless universe. When the truth is we are at the center creation on solid ground. We're not going anywhere. And we're safe no asteroids. There's no shortages of anything. There's no overpopulation. It's a complete and total lie. Everything they tell us and it's meant to keep us in fear and to give away. Our god given free will.

"I'm wondering if you could describe the ways that Madonna has served as a model for you through each phase of your life from when you were growing up to as you were as you were moving into your professional career, and the now as you are trying to gain the new directions for this established company, and it's funny that I. Always Talk About Madonna's being my. You know my my my secret mentor, you know the first time I saw Madonna and what was the League nineteen eighty-three blew my mind of the coup. Is this woman? She looked difference. He was expressive. She moved to new. York City like I was a sesame street. Fanatic? She Got Sesame Street. She was dancing. She was dressed differently and I was in my twelve year old eleven year. Old Man was enthralled with Madonna. But Rachel didn't just admire Madonna for her bold fashion choices or her exciting dance moves. She saw more than that. She really identified with her as a self made woman. And, look at people like Madonna and I think wow that her mother died. She didn't have everything on a silver platter for her to move to New York City on off a bus I look at women who are like that, and and have despite the odds, and despite the financial support to get things started have just gone for it, and those are women and I really relate to. Rachel tried to model herself after everything that she's on Madonna. She was a creative powerhouse. He was a clean of reinvention. She was a bad ass. Businesswoman I specifically remember reading an article and interview with Don I. Don't know what year and I don't know. When sometime in the late eighties early nineties talking about how Madonna made point to study the masthead of every magazine to know every editor to know who she needed to know as networking opportunity for her to build her career I still remember reading than I thought. This woman is not only has an artistic vision. She Has a vision of how she wants to establish herself as independent business. And I always remember reading that and thinking. It's not just about talent. It's also about being very specific in the choices and the people and the community that you have around you to get to that point of where you want to be. And then also Madonna is you know is a woman of reinvention I mean the thing I like about Madonna and always inspire me. She makes him like major mistakes, right? She just keeps going and I always admire women who you know, make a mistake. Admit it and just go, and she has done that her entire life I mean I remember when when I was in college in that crazy sex book came out, and she got a lot of backlash for that, but she was you know she came back. What do you think we can take from her example of trying to control our own narrative? She she has done. She has she has been strategic. She is identified who she wants to speak with. She's identified what it is that she wants to say. Even in the current moment where things are very tumultuous, people groups who have been far more marginalized than her finally being heard. So, what can we take from her example of owning our own power? I think that you've got to surround yourself with people that you feel good about and relationships change and. Being very self, aware and aware who's around you I, think is important as a lifelong message. I never talked about Madonna this. What would you do if you actually met her? Would you ever want to meet her? There's this whole thing about not meeting your her. Once at a party briefly at a it was a artist. David. Lachapelle and my friend was there and she was there and it was crazy. He's like and I turned around and he goes Oh. Do you know Madonna and we were I and the thing. Thing about myself and Madonna were the exact same height, so we were items like nice to meet you. And then I blacked out I froze I don't remember anything after that. It was so exciting it was. It was the one moment I had really nothing to say. That's pretty extraordinary. Did she meet your expectations? I thought she'd always seemed taller, but she was exact height. I two I. was kind of amazing. I can hear the smile in your voice. That was obviously a moment that was a great moment of excitement meeting Madonna and also disagreed time when you're young and optimistic in New, York City. On the. Party. Chose or anything else that you want to say about Madonna or her. Any other aspect that we've talked about you don't feel that we really. Delved into I. WanNa talk about you know a piece of advice that my grandmother gave me that I always think about at least once or twice a week, and her motto us. Wherever you go, you take yourself and I think about that wherever you are in your life or whatever your job is or whatever it is you want to do try. You are at the heart of that and doesn't matter where you live doesn't matter you know what your job is. You are the center of. Your future and that's something you cannot change. That's the one thing you cannot change. Is that you are you? Are you and I often think about that very philosophically Rachel? Thank you very much, thank you. To find out more about Rachel White. You can look up on twitter at NYC Babylon. And if you want to find out more about Madonna well, you know a simple search for her. Online will point you in the right direction.
