"Use hazelnuts. You can all kinds of nuts. Walnuts will make you any nut really. I think can make a not butter. But you have your own flavors of maybe what's your favorite or all of course have different nutritional values as well but i wanna talk about how to make it real quick so this recipe is just one and a half cups of for this. Purpose is roasted cashews and two tablespoons of like to use coconut oil and a little bit of salt to taste Put that in a food processor. And that's it. You have homemade peanut butter. And it's really weird so you do the nuts first and then you mix them in the food processors. Just the easiest way you could use a blender especially if you have like a vitamix or blend or something a high performance blenders but really a food processor if you have is probably the easiest and you can do it even without oil if you want. But i like the real creamy texture of using oil. But you will. You'll think you're not doing it right. Because it becomes almost like a powder like a flower but if you actually just keep mixing it will soon turn to liquid and that probably is also a scientific process know about but super fascinating other adams as you can use any order cinnamon vanilla honey or maple syrup to make you make savoury nut butters. You can make sweet nut butters. The results are limbless but definitely try homemade nut butter or could make spacey. Yeah absolutely. I think. We like a one i. I put. Yeah and thai. Peanut sauce is usually peanut. Butter is the first ingredient. It's got a ton of other things but yeah you can put peanut butter and make spicy. I do like a real savory or even a sweet and spicy butter was kind of like the cashew butter that gave you has some chinese chili flakes in it and tumor eric. But it also had honey so it had a really cool flavor profile of of high end suite two hob and not too sweet. Hopefully but i am so fascinated by that powder going to liquid so. I was amazed because for an eye. Even though the recipe told me this is going to happen. You're gonna think something's wrong but if you just keep blending and not. I'm not talking about a half hour talking about a couple of minutes and then like five minutes and it's almost like etta moment right. It's kind of like when you're whipping either with cream or equites you know. There's this magical moment this reaction where it then turns because if you do whip cream and then you over whip it. It's going to turn into butter something else. It goes past the point and that will not happen also with nut butter which is fascinating. I will say pro tips to get unsalted raw peanuts and then rosta them yourself. That is also super easy to do. And it's again. It's the difference of doing like dried urbs versus fresh herbs. Peanuts first of all that way. You're not getting salted so you can add as much salt as you want to. If if you do roasted salted peanuts my guess is i haven't done it. You'll get a really salty peanut butter especially if there's a lot of people who don't want to watch their salt intake so put oven three fifty preheated and then every ten minutes put your once it comes the of an hits three fifty. Put your nuts in there and pan and a shallow pan and every five ten minutes. Just check it and give it a little shake or stir. Whatever so they get a little evenly brown and you do have to watch it. Because every temperatures different for me and my level of humidity and elevation it took about thirty minutes is about the magic number but where you live could totally change in the kind of a new app. Convection versus non. So i don't like to say specific time. Just check it every five to ten minutes and that tastes that brings out the flavor of your of your peanut sir. Nuts so much more. It's so much better. That is definitely a hack to to do it. Yourself as just magical and then you add a little bit of salt to your peanut butter to taste keep tasting and then add a little more if you want a little less. You don't need it. you don't have to have salt. But i like lois assault in mine and like i said all those other add ins. It's just delicious fantastic and so listeners. If you're like oh my gosh. I don't remember what brian said. Don't worry you can just go to the show notes. He was putting a link as we do with oliver cool sheets to how to make your own nut butter that's awesome. I've never done it before. So now i am in is one of those things like. I said it's so easy. I guess way easier than i thought. Yeah and now because peanut butter especially natural. Peanut butter is relatively expensive. Yeah and if you get raw peanuts also less expensive than roasted salted peanuts. You're getting a better. You can get organic raw. Start with a good thing. And then it's much more economical to do it yourself and it's easy and it's kind of fun i love cooking and it would be a fun activity also with a family or a friend yeah. I think it'd be fun. But i just like i get cooking for me is almost like a meditative state. It's one of the things i do for pleasure. So i love that process of like this ceremony of roasting the peanuts and the smell your house of course nelson being. Oh then you taste and then it's yeah and it's great it would drive griffin crazy. Oh yeah who. I could make dog biscuits side of it moved. Yeah for sure..

five minutes two tablespoons brian one and a half cups about thirty minutes one first ingredient three fifty couple of minutes griffin ten minutes five ten minutes three fifty preheated a half hour one of those things things five first chinese

"For this week's episode. Okay so i'm gonna move onto my next kushida and a website. And i love this website for a couple of reasons. It's called carbon counter dot com. And it's very simple in terms of it has one purpose and it is a way to look at cars in terms of their emissions and their cost. So this is like. I want to see if my car cost efficient and is it also carbon emission efficient. And it's really cool. Because i actually do with my students. They calculate they do some calculations of different kinds of fuels and how much emissions there are and the cost and we create a graph but this one is completely done for any car model. So you go in and you can type in like. I have a toyota rav four so i put into a red for and then i see where it turns out on this graph and this graph has Like i said there's the cost of ownership and that's along the horizontal axis in on the vertical that showing greenhouse gas emissions per mile driven. And so you can see that not so. Surprisingly close to the bottom is a whole strip of all of our electric cars. They're down there and not surprising. The one that has the least emissions and the lowest cost were down in the nissan leaf. And then really low emissions but really high cost is tesla one of the highest. Tesla's are there so it allows you know and it's not so surprising but it does allow you to say okay. I can't get electric car right now. But i've you know gas okay. How how bad quote unquote his mind. Whereas this one okay. I'm considering getting this car. How bad is that. And it's just it's really straightforward. Gives you a lotta information quickly and i just had fun kind of poke around and look in different cars to honestly and so it's called carbon counter dot com. No that's super cool. Because even for me who i haven't drove a vehicle or a personal vehicle for seven plus years now but i would. I would have totally have fun. Just checking it out entering different models and makes and things like that does it say oh if you have a ninety eight model ford versus a two thousand eighteen or something like that. Does it do on the year. Because i'm the. I'm sure would change over time. I would be so i'm just so i love geeking out about that kind of stuff and does it also does it. Factor in manufacturing so. Yeah tesla doesn't burn any fossil fuels but to make it cost rate. It does i mean. Does it factor in that. So absolutely you are right about that and that is something that i'm not sure about but i thought of an and i thought okay i need to look into this more closely but what they talk about is the cost to the consumer gut it okay so the way it is now. It does not take that into account. But i've always been interested in the meltdown. Obviously that's more of a one time. Purchase where yeah. Yeah it it. It took some carbon to make it. Yeah but you're carbon neutral. Whatever free after that or mostly that question hundred percent. That question that you're asking was. I believe answered in a previous cool sheet that i talked about. Yeah i'll have to look up but where did talk about cars and how much it costs to make them there. You go so. Maybe i'll be able to hold up while you're talking about your next close. She we'll see but yeah very cool. School sheet is kind of fun one. This is an instagram account. That i i've followed for a while now and it's called if you high so if you just got instagram. Dot com slash. If you high. And i love that. It's not even proper proper proper grammar because very fitting but i will say that you do not have to be high to get enjoyment from these post. It probably helps. It probably is different. They have one thousand five hundred and fifty posts amd counting and five point seven million followers. So it is quite popular. And i can't imagine they're all stone say it's usually video. It's usually kind of looping mind-bending either optical illusions or major be magic loops. Where seamless loops. All my favorite things. Zach does a lot of seamless magic loops but So these are similar but also very different. And yeah. I don't i've actually never been stoned in watched it because when i'm done i'm not thinking about one of these days the stars align and i'll check it out 'cause when i'm not. I'm always like how this instagram like. It so cool. And like i said you don't have to be because when you're watch them and you maybe start to think you are because it's just they're always kind of like i said these mind bending loops and some of them are just slow mo of mushroom when the mo of all the spores spreading out and the next ones this orange that then transforms into a person. Or whatever. and it's they're always pretty trippy or the orange turns log falling. It's hard to explain. It's just wild definitely check out this higher not checkout if you hi sure okay i so i was not successful looking up the other thing i was going to look up but now i have to like this one. I wonder if you just found it if you. Oh wow yeah see. I have to make sure my volume is off. Okay so what have you save. You never seen this calva ver- no yeah exactly okay. But i did one say. I did talk about fueleconomy.gov okay. Is it different resource. But that's not what i'm thinking of. I have another one so anyway. I'll keep looking up. So i'm tripping on this parasail trip it exactly yes. I describe what you're seeing so their listeners. Someone is jump roping essentially in the air with their parasail. And it's i mean it's up above these glorious mountains and i swear to god. This is by grenoble. France where i have been. So that's why i'm thinking if that makes tripping that's funny i now is such account. It is safe fun. Yeah oh they do yes. Some of them are just slow motion or you know..

"But it is also hard copy and it is called. Who not how. And i'm now reading it again. I read it in almost immediately reading it again. I've learned so much from this book. So it is by dan. Sullivan and benjamin hardy. Although it may be this happens all the time. But i didn't know it until reading this book that dan didn't write any of it he just had the idea and then ben wrote the book and would meet with him and in the audio version. After the end of each chapter they get together and they have a little chitchat about it. Kind of like an interview so you gain more from it and what. I'm not sure about actually. Because i only have the audio book is whether or not the book does that. It might just be a bonus that you get with the audio book since it is this kind of back and forth thing that they do so the gist of it is and it is. It's a quick read by the way so you can get through it quickly. Is that when we are struggling. Something we're we're facing something. There's something we wanna do. We have some kind of goal in mind and that we often sit there and think. Okay how am i gonna do this. And you can go through all the mechanisms and you can figure things out and all this thing. And that's the natural direction for any to go. But the point that dan made and then been picked up on is that it's not. How are you going to do it. It's who are you going to ask to either do with you or do it for you or to introduce you to the person that's going to help you do it or whatever and it really captures this whole idea about how we are not each jusque singular islands on this planet that we are all better and synergy is everything starts out with amazing story about michael jordan and how much better he got because of his shoes and not just being the best player on the planet that time. So it's an outstanding book highly recommended. Who not how cool. That is cool. I love it's kind of the test. Philosophy a new way of looking at something and that's kind of that means that model for gas and it's something maybe we know but it's different angle. It's a different way to look at it. I love it. Yeah think that sounds really cool. Yeah i think you would like it. And like i said it's a quick one so yeah audio thing to that does happen sometimes. It's always a treat when you get these little extra nuggets where the author or whoever kind of does a little sidebar and as things that's really cool amanda palmer does that allied in her book he sings and she does these wonderful things and gary v does it a lot or sidebars with matthew. Mcconaughey did his last book. But it's a felt like that. I better term. Sidebar is like a verb to sidebar. Like they've heard it. Yeah and so. Yeah all right another podcast. Another local podcasts. That i listen to you. They always sidebar. Actually become a joke or like they're talking about one thing and they're like oh sidebar also used to have a crush on so and so or whatever that sidebar is it one person likes all the time. It's really great sign on. I just learned a new term. Yeah i'm in now. Urine right well cool. My next cool is a word. You'll love the song. Karen and its paradise paradise. I want to specifically talk about face paradox. that's when you see faces in objects. That don't really aren't really there. Imperatively also talks about like a common thing is like the rohrschack test so it's ink blot where you see an image and someone tells you what are you see in whatever you see will evaluate your if you're crazy or not or whatever but face paradox is when you see faces and objects and i just love this phenomenon and it's one of those things like once you kind of do it. You'll see it more and more all the time. And i think it's hilarious. Some of the science behind it professor kingly from the universe ear of toronto say that we're kind of prime to see faces in the world because it's kind of a fight or flight instinctual thing you know if we look and see a face in the bush we what do we do. Do we run do we. Or what is it. And if it's a mistake in no harm done but if it's warning us and helping us stay alive than it's very viable so that he's kind of thinking that maybe that's why we've done it and also some japanese researchers found that we even track the gaze of face in an object. So if there's a building that looks like is are looking to the left just like a human you'll you'll see them that building looking to the left and you'll like oh it is looking at. It's not even a real face looking. I so i love that phenomenon to that we also look where even the fake faces are going. So there's cool things you can go to hash icy faces on instagram. And they have like all these different instances of that. It's super fun to check out. Perilla church you know that makes me think of is the amityville horror where they took a house Yeah need it extra scary that it looked like a face like an evil scary glenn phase. Yeah absolutely and i wonder if that's just tied in with that psychological phenomena. Whatever will they do talk about like cars are like that. So obviously there's the animated pixar whatever cars and they all have faces but car manufacturers have actually designed so sports cars look a little more masculine and kind of an more masculine face. And then if you take something like volkswagen beetle. It's a little more rounded and the even the headlights around all purpose to attract kind of the customer would drive a beetle versus dodge charger. Whatever is more of a little aggressive face like. Yeah this is i speed so they actually might be designing cars with that a little bit in mind which is fascinating to me that they would think about that. Oh my gosh yeah. So it's it's super fascinating. Wants to go down that rabbit hole and again you'll see everything you'll see faces everywhere all of a sudden super. It's super fun for sure. Yeah and no surprise that people see the face to face in the moon. I but yeah. It's it's a pretty famous one. There's a building here in salem. That's a it's a lot of people. Say see jesus in it or a cow or something like this random spots. There has been the jesus in the toast you know. There's in the of people the see faces and toasts our buildings things like that and they since sold the toast one was virgin mary that sulfur thirty five thousand dollars or something. I had a nine here. Data's like yeah people get like wild about it but heavenly figures certainly tends to happen more frequently where people that are spiritual also see faces more often which i thought was super interesting. Yeah it's wild. It's a it's a really cool phenomenon that i my. Gosh yeah anything psychological like that so interesting. Cool all right well. I did want to remind everyone that if they wanted to look up the show notes they can go to ten bestest dot com slash kazoo.

This is such an awesome magazine. And the whole reason why i discovered kazoo. I saw a really amazing posts on linked in actually that someone had made commentary about girls and girl magazines like and so i made a post on facebook and then a friend of mine said hey you know what. There's a really great girls magazine that addresses these issues that you're bringing up. It's called kazoo. So i went and found it online and i discovered that it is a hard copy magazine. You order this thing you subscribe to it. It is mailed to you and you hold it in your and and there's a good reason for that so i am not a young girl nor do i have a young girl in my household but i was really interested in this magazine and what it was all about and i wanted to support them.

But i actually kinda true. Yeah it's feels rare nowadays it does. It's cool it is it is and it. Has you know it's kind of like back in the day when we were growing up there. Were kids magazines where you drew in. They had a big spots where you could like draw something and has that oh cool yeah factor as well for sure because kids don't really see that anymore and magazines that's kind of rare now and so here's an example like a had a recipe for making cookies and then it gives the history fortune cookies and then the mystery of it and this and that you know so it just really brings in this kind of holistic approach to each of the things they talk about and just really fun very very well done call.

My first school sheet is a human. This is one of the most amazing humans. I've been able to witness a long time and it's amanda gorman. She was at the inauguration for joe biden presidency and she kind of stole the show. Not kinda she did. She just twenty two years old and she is the youngest inaugural poet in us history. She's award winning writer. She graduated kamada at harvard. Super super smart and her poem was absolutely amazing. It was called the hill. Climb some of my favorite quotes. We braved the belly of the beast. We've learned that quiet isn't always piece so she does really cool like play on words like a lot of good poets due to her delivery her confidence. She's just a tiny little thing but she owned every second of spoken word and she. Her presence is larger than life. She wore this amazing like bright. Yellow jacket and a red headband. And she's just she's a force and i've listened to a couple more poems that she has online. She has a temp performance. Of course she has another one on global warming called earth rice also very all. They're all very good. She is going to be an up and comer and some really cool things that i learned about her is she actually has a speech impediment so to be a world class poet like this but still she and if you notice she still struggles with ours. I'm saying them and it was a thing that she had couldn't hear when she was born very well in a distorted the way she picked up language but she's totally overcome but i love that she still embraces. That and has not let it supper. That's an inspiration. She's an inspiration for so many other things he plans to be. Run for president in twenty thirty six so definitely keep an eye out for. Amanda gorman She yes yes yes yes that's all. Well that's not all. I have to say but it's so funny because you had asked me you said are you going to be talking about any humans and i immediately was like he's gonna talk about amanda. I do really do it. Oh yeah that's because like this is definitely one. Were probably gonna duplicate and as actually ready. I have twenty more minutes of notes so as like well. If you talk about it. I could talk about other things. Boughedir research her so thoroughly even for the show because she's amazing person and i want to learn and more about her. There are some other amazing things in her poem. During inauguration we lay down our arms so can reach out our arms Just so many things. There were so relevant to the day into the state of the nation right now so uplifting and uniting and she's just an amazing amazing person i'm so glad she was selected. I'm so yeah she's she's an amazing human. Ooh last time. We'll we'll hear about her absolutely absolutely and i could. I could relate. So guess what i had a speech impediment. I could not say ours. Oh okay there you go. yeah so when. I heard that i was like way. Yeah and you can see her. I i've listened to that inauguration poem now three or four times maybe more and i don't notice it as much. So maybe she really she she talked. She's very open about it and talking about and how she's used. She had some really interesting. She listened to the soundtrack of hamilton. A lot to help her with this speech. Show interesting to overcome which i thought was also cool techniques again and just very perfect for her but if you listen to some of our older poems you maybe it's more relevant than or whatever but i think it's i don't know if i'm just because i'm so enamored with her presence that i think everything she does now is golden so even when she has it in her eyes defend. I'm like it's it's wonderful because now she's embraced it. It's she doesn't hide from it. And i love it because you know joe biden. He stuttered for a really long time and he still to this day. A lot of people say. Oh you know seems like you so out of sorts. A lot of time. Because he's overcome his speech impediment and people don't quite realize that i mean obviously he's older too and not to pick a political side. But you know that's a thing with him and so the fact that he picked another person that also had a speech impediment like everything about it. I know i love it. It's perfect and she. She's she's amazing. Anyway i now. she's amazing. I am excited to see what her future holds. Three books coming out. Oh yeah like. And this is again before the inauguration obviously but that kinda catapulted her every now she's on everybody's radar but i was so happy to. I already called a local bookstore and reserve copy of one of her book. Oh excellent so yeah so super bumped about awesome all right well speaking of bucks. My next goal sheet is a buck slash audiobook. I'm actually listening to the audio..

This is good and they are like the situations even when there were good people. I feel like the situations around them. We're not necessarily the best so it's just yeah all right. I guess.

"Support for for your business to make sense and so this is what you just have to do Because that that's everything your brand reputation. Your brands viability is absolutely everything. If you don't have that you're you're going to be in big trouble in terms of business and that's just the way it is i. It doesn't matter if people like it or not agree with it or not. I think it's fair or not. It's just the way it is. It's just the way it is and it's just what had to happen in this case. Yes and i think the other thing. That's that's educational in the story. Cam is the gray area really and this is where it still so remarkably difficult for for women in the workforce right. It's not the obvious stuff you go through these text exchanges cam and porter saying hey meet me for drink. I met this hotel by hotel. That stuff is clearly of a personal and romantic nature. it couldn't possibly be misconstrued as anything else but there are also text messages of. Hey i'm at the stadium watching banning practice. You should come by. Well this is think about it. This is a reporter who's trying to build a reputation is trying to succeed. Major league baseball and porter is well aware of that fact. And he's relying on it and he's praying on it for the purposes of his own personal goals. That has nothing to do with. Hey come on down watch batting practice in this might give you like up over your competitors. He's using his as leverage for his own romantic interests. And that's the stuff that's far more complicated and and far more difficult to sort of. Just look at it and say oh well. Hey that's acceptable or that's unacceptable. But that's the kind of stuff that women have to deal with. And that's the kind of stuff is an employment lawyer that you know a meeting with clients. I'm faced with those sorts of scenarios of. Hey i've been subjected to this. What can we do about that. What does this mean. It's the gray area stuff. That still happens. All the time and is really really really difficult needs to be addressed. You mentioned that. He had sent sixty messages and that she didn't respond. And this follows one brief encounter in an elevator. What's interesting you went like like if sent sixty messages to somebody else Without response is it doesn't matter if it's relationship nature or pursuit or or anything it's harassment. You know like it's just the asian. Do that to anyone at anytime. It goes over the line and it shows he. He probably has some boundary issues that he needs to work out. Well yeah and that's just it. I mean at the end of it. I mean this reporter talks about interview with with. Espn where she had an english as a second language into our own. Admission said you know it's difficult for me to write in english and she had someone help her draft a very very brief response. Saying you know. Hey this is inappropriate. Please stop and then of course at that. Point porter says oh. I'm so sorry. i'm so sorry i'll stop. i'll stop. i'm so sorry i apologize..

"I understand She spoke with espn and twenty seventeen. The the exchanges with porter occurred in twenty sixteen so there is even a gap between the the exchange of these texts and when she ultimately spoke to espn. So yeah as to why you know. Espn sat on it for that long or she asked espn to sit on it for that long. That was the explanation that she provided. Was you know she was. She was scared of reprisal. And i've since read a number of stories around this sort of researching the story for for the show cam and you know. Obviously this isn't uncommon for women down to endure in these situations and her reaction is all too common where they do sit quiet. They don't say anything and it could be years before Could be triggering event or they see that individual in the public eye. And that is what sort of motivates them to to finally come forward and tell their story in any sort of curious to get your take on this cam because the mets response so you know y- when the story finally broke initial response came. This was monday evening. And it came from the president of the the new york. Mets sandy alderson. And i'll read you reach the wrote. This is what anderson had to say or alderson. Excuse me. I have spoken directly with jared porter regarding events that took place in two thousand sixteen of which we were made aware tonight for the first time. Jared has acknowledged to me his serious error in judgment. His taken responsibility for his conduct has expressed remorse and his previously apologized for his actions. The mets take these matters seriously. Expect professional and ethical behavior from all of our employees and certainly do not condone the conduct described. In your story. We will follow up. Is we review the facts regarding the serious issue. So what are your thoughts cam on the on the response. Well i think. I mean first of all and again i haven't i haven't done deeply into this at all but i think it's quite clear especially now that when there are accusations like this There should be a quick investigation to determine if they're if they are true. Or even you know possibly true and and action should be taken quickly and we've talked about that on this show because you're exposing your your brand or your product or your corporate profile to to further scrutiny and criticism If you don't take action. Because i think that the precedent has been set with with this since harvey weinstein and since the metoo movement started now. I'm not conflicting. This with harvey weinstein. I think is very different. Different cases But i think it does behoove companies now to to act quickly. I think they probably did what i would have recommended however the interesting part here is i really do. Think that five years ago he would probably still have his job And the reasons being this is a guess. I'm not saying that he should or shouldn't have it. But i think especially in a sports organization. I think there was in in sports. I think probably a bit of a higher tolerance for this kind of thing again. That's my own personal opinion and we've talked about sports stories before you and on the show as well but also that because it was it was many years ago and and they did say that he apologized and as far as we know this is the only case although others may may come forward so it seems like the sort of thing where you potentially. The business could have rallied around the new general manager if it was one case and there.

I'm wondering from either of you with the events that we we've seen the past week. Was there a moment that struck you a politically or otherwise from from? You know this this transition of power? Just what about you? Okay. Maybe this is frivolous. But I was here for J. Lo. I was here How jewelry? I was here for the hair. Absolutely not for not for bliss it off. I mean, I think I think most of the executive orders were under that ponytail. It was great and then whole Instagram photo shoot, just lounging like prom style with a rod on the Capitol steps. It's like that is not what people are usually doing on the Capitol steps, but it's what you would expect. J. Lo to do at at the Capitol. She and a rotter gonna have a photo shoot. And there's any Medina just kind of gratuitously and the shot. I was like, Okay, this is this is amazing. A Greek. That was the moment That was a moment from from this week that I will not soon forget for right. What about you? Amanda Gorman all day every day. I love her so much. You know what strikes me is that there's book ends. You know that the poet and philanthropist Elizabeth Alexander Gave the poem at the first Obama inauguration. And now you have another black woman from a different generation justice, brilliant giving this inaugural poem and to me, that's a great book end to the arc of history. I think that's absolutely right. You know, art matters, poetry matters and in these types of moments, you know, I think that that kind of thing can really capture kind of the sweep of history. And I think that Amanda Gorman certainly did a beautiful job of that. Absolutely s. Oh, there were reportedly more troops in Washington D c this week for the inauguration than there were in U. S wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria combined. You know, Farai, you're staying in the DC area at the moment. I'm just wondering kind of what it feels like to you. Toe have such heavy military presence. What was that? Like? You know, it was really fascinating. I am I have never seen Washington D. C locked down like this, and it was a huge Pain and a huge cost to the city. And what I mean by that is that certain places of work we're closed. A lot of people who had to go to work couldn't take the Metro because it was shut down. Yeah, many different stations, so the impact of The largely white lead domestic terrorism at the Capitol, then ripples out to working class black and brown people and white people who can't get to work, many of whom are going to get a paycheck if they don't get to work, who worked jobs that depend on shift work, So I think that in addition to everything else being a national security risk violence, a covert super spreader event The siege of the capital also took money out of pockets of working class people in the DC area..

The inauguration inspires more art

"Sure. But artists also played a big role as you might have heard. Earlier in the show. We got to see Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez perform. There was an art installation at the National Mall. But outside of Washington, one particular piece of art really struck us. Hoarsely. Allah Barriers is a poet from Chicago. He often writes about his identity as a Mexican American from a mixed status family, And this week he was commissioned to write a new poem. It's called the People's Inauguration. It's your part of it. So let our imagination be as expensive as our love These In the beginning, there were no police until someone imagined them. So let's imagine the end of policing. Imagine medicine for the sick. Imagine bread for the hungry and don't stop imagining and struggling until we have a country worthy of inauguration. Jose Olivera is reading some of his poems, the people's inauguration. Put the olive areas as poem was commissioned by a U. S non profit called the Center for Cultural Power. And for more Jose's on with me on the line on Zoom from Jersey. Hi, Jose. How are you? I'm good. How are you, Tom? Powerful poem. Thank you. How are you doing? It's been ages since we talked. How you holding up? I'm holding up, Okay. All things considered, you know, the most important thing is everyone's been able to stay safe. So I feel really lucky and grateful for that. Well, we're lucky and grateful to have yet In the end that poem, which is which is beautiful in we're gonna get some poetry from your later You refer to a country worthy of inauguration. When you were watching the inauguration. Were you in any way confident that this new president might be able to steer the ship in that direction? I'm hopeful that at the very least we won't Live under the constant kind of terror and anxiety of the last administration, where we just, you know, would wake up to news that there was you know the Muslim bin and then the next day, there was another catastrophe. And so it feels like At the very least, it won't be four years of one catastrophe after the next I feel a little bit less a little more hesitant, saying anything more than that, because I think there's this idea that a return to normalcy is good enough. But normalcy was not good enough. Normalcy still meant that a lot of people were living. We're still suffering. So for me, we have to do better than just getting back to the way it was before Donald Trump one of the most beautiful moments of the inauguration, Certainly one of the most standout moments was from the poet Amanda Gorman. 22 years old youth poet laureate. I can see you getting excited as I talk about this. She brought the house down housing significant Was it for you to see poetry used like this. It was so powerful and so great. You know, Amanda is like you said, 22 years old to see a young person. Given that opportunity to shine, I think just goes to show You know how many talented poets there are in that young people when given the opportunity can really rise to the moment. So I was really happy to see a man that just absolutely crushed it on that stage and as a poet yourself, it must have been so exciting that all these songs did very well. But it was a poem, a poem that reached so many people that made such an impact. Absolutely, And the poem was so musical. I mean, you could hear the rhyme scheme and the different rhythms that Amanda incorporated. My favorite moment is she has a line that said, You know something along the lines of harm for none and harmony for all that little flip is just so beautiful and I think worthy of what of what we want and what we're trying to build. Well, I'm excited to listen to some poetry from you as well. You're going to read from his later on,

Amanda Gorman's books jump to bestsellers after inaugural poem

"The dawn is hours before we knew it. Somehow we do it. Somehow we've weathered in witnessed a nation that isn't broken but simply unfinished we the successors of a country and the time were a skinny black girl. Descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one that was amanda gorman the inaugural youth poet lawyer it reading from her poem. At the hill we climb which she read at joe biden's inauguration alexandra alter profiled gorman and interviewed her joining us now to talk a little bit more about that hey alexandra hey pamela so this was a really exciting week in washington but i most loved about the news events. This week was that a poet was the breakout star of the inauguration ceremony on wednesday. Amanda gorman was the youngest inaugural poet and us history. She joins a very elite class of poets. Only been a handful of poets who have performed it including robert frost my ngelo elizabeth richard blanco. So she really brought a lot to this performance. And when i spoke to her what was really interesting to me was. She felt enormous pressure. Not just because of the size of the audience she was going to be addressing. Tens of millions of people potentially watching the events at home but because of the state of the country she felt real responsibility to present a poem that reflected joe biden's inaugural theme of america united and. She said they didn't give her any specific guidelines but they said that's the three million inauguration but she also really wanted to address. What has happened recently in the country. Particularly the partisan divisions that we've seen the political violence the effects of the pandemic. It's a really dark moment. And so she was kind of trying to counter johnston to forces the potential for unity. But also these deep divisions that we're seeing in the country now so interestingly. She was really struggling with the poem. The inaugural committee reached out to her late december. She had a few weeks to work on it and was kind of she said it's like it felt like climbing a mountain would do a few versus a day and then on january six. We all watched across the country as the unfolded at the capital. There was the insurrection. There and rioters stormed the capital. And amanda gorman at that point had written about half of her poem and she stayed up late into the night and finished it because she just felt this urgency. And so you're there are verses in the poem that reflect what we saw that day the other thing that she said that was interesting about how she prepared to write it was. She said she always starts with historical research so she studied speeches from leaders who really brought their countries together. In times of crisis she looked at speeches by winston. Churchill abraham lincoln martin luther king junior and she listened to music that inspired her including the musical hamilton. There are a couple of hamilton references within the poem. That some people caught including lin-manuel miranda who was very appreciative of her poetry. So it's been incredible to see their response to her work after she gave this really kind of inspiring performance her books. She has two books coming out this year. Actually three because they're releasing the poem she wrote as a standalone and she has now the number one and number two books on amazon and this is a poet who is twenty two years old and she's preparing to publish her debut collection. This fall so she's gone incredibly quickly from somebody who had following and was pretty well known in the poetry world to kind of national literary star and one other thing that i loved about her performance and her approach to it which she talked about how she felt like she was representing not just her own words but representing poetry itself representing american poetry and y you know it was important to have poetry part of the ceremony. She said when. I spoke to her now more than ever. The united states needs an inaugural poem. Poetry is typically the touchstone that we go back to when we have to remind ourselves of the history that we stand on the future that we stand for so i thought it was lovely that she felt that she was standing up in front of the capital. Two weeks after the insurrection took place kind of representing poetry as a form that can unite the country.

"I'm Noel King, and I'm Steve Inskeep. The Americans who speak it. Tomorrow's presidential inauguration include a poet, new presidents sometimes invite one John F. Kennedy invited Robert Frost. For example, in the blinding sun in 1961, the 86 year old Frost could not see the words of the special poem he had written for the occasion. So he abandoned that text and recited another poem. From memory. Joe Biden. The inaugural poet is 22. Amanda Gorman of Los Angeles is the former national youth poet laureate. One of her past poems in 2017 included the line Tyrants Fear the poet. Tomorrow, Gorman brings a new poem to the stage. And like Robert Frost, she might well change the words she plans to say In the past, she is sometimes tweaked to poem moments before reading it aloud. The reason Amanda Gorman has done that became clear as she spoke with us. I've been writing poetry ever since I can remember. I want to say probably four or five. It wasn't good at all. But I fell in love with it. And I think that passion was exacerbated by the fact that I had a speech impediment. So having an arena in which I could express my thoughts freely was just so liberating that I felt Head over heels. You know, when I was barely a toddler? What if I may ask? Was the speech impediment? Thank you for asking, because I don't think people get specific enough about it. You know, when I say I think people assume stutter s O, how mind manifested itself was I had difficulty pronouncing sort of letters in the alphabet. But I would overcome you know, sister or what? The hardest one that took me until I want to say I was 22 say would be the are sound so you know Saying things like poet Tween not really able to say the our sound and it took a really long time for me to get it. And now you some happy did you go through a period of avoiding the words that were hard to say? Oh, definitely. I think as a poet, you know, there's not only the ridden aspect of the art form, but there's also spoken word and I remember writing poems in which I would have to basically self edit and self police. You know, I don't want to say girls can change the world. But I cannot say many of the letters of that statement, so I'd say things like young woman. Can shake the globe's. I'd really have to be aware of the death of synonyms to use to express the same sentiment of thought, because many times I was trying to say what I really had intended to say I would be unintelligible. And and was it a conscious choice to become a performative poet to say I'm going to write poems that are suitable for public occasions and and say them in front of crowds? I'm not sure if it was so much a proactive choices kind of the answering of a calling it kind of just started happening more and more, You know, as they mentioned with the speech impediment. I am not expecting to be the public occasion Poet That is the last place. I am expecting anyone to want me. But as I continued to write and share my poetry and become brave enough to read at cafes and things like that I started getting invited to read at occasions and I would say yes. And you know I would be in the bathroom, scribbling five minutes before trying to figure out if I could say Earth or if I can say girl or if I could say poetry and you know, doing the best with the poem I could Joe Biden has been very public about the fact that he studied as a kid, and there's been some journalism, suggesting that he still struggles to keep down that stutter in that. That explains some of his public statements over time. What is it like Given your background to write for this particular president elect? Well, I think it's incredibly special and sentimental, not just for me but the entire country. I mean, I think obviously there's that connection with the speech impediment, which, for me is huge. There was also a deeper history city to this and that my Angelou was growing up as a child, and she grew up to deliver. On the inaugural column for President Bill Clinton. So I think there is a real history of orders who have had to struggle a type of imposed voiceless nous have that stage of the inauguration, So it's really special for me. But I think beyond that President elect Joe Biden is just so incredibly capable along with Vice President elect Kamala Harris, and they just symbolized. I think the best of my country so that in itself Beyond. I think even my own personal connection is enough to get me excited. You are being asked to say something profound. Had a profound occasion. There's been this divisive election There was the attack on the Capitol. There's the pandemic. We're just passing 400,000 dead in trying to speak to all of that. Where do you even begin? Right. It was really daunting to begin the poem because you don't even really know I think the entry point and was to step into the murk. And so for me with poems, I do the same thing that I always do. I'm a straight a student, so my homework and do my research. So I started with really steeping myself in the literature of inaugural poet and then also expanding my purview beyond that, So who are the writers and orders throughout history? Who I look up to who Speaking within a divided America but speak of Ah, United America. And so I was reading a lot of Frederick Douglass of Abraham Lincoln of modeling for King. Even a lot of Churchill as well and just Okay, I have this opportunity. What other ways in which the rhetoric has been used for good. And how can I use those states? Skills and instruments? Would you read us? Just a little bit of what you came up with. Sir s O. This is a verse towards the middle of the poem. We've seen a force that would shatter our nation rather than share it. Would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy in this effort, very nearly succeeded. But while democracy can be periodically delayed It can never be permanently defeated. In this truth in this faith we trust While we have our eyes on the future history has its eyes on us. Among other things, I'm just listening to all the R's in there and loving that how perfectly you said it. Oh, my God. Destroy is so hard for me to say it don't know why I put it in there. Well, Amanda Gorman. That's a beautiful sentiment and I look forward to hearing the rest of it..
