"The chair which was co written by. Amanda peet now does character. Professor kim has become the chair of the english department and is in a position of authority. She finds herself in a conflict zone. The colleges hemorrhaging enrollments and the older tenured professors being challenged by students and young progressive professors calling out racism and sexism on campus. In this scene.

Who's become a star in the department and has a big following on social media. Her classes are packed. Few students sign up for his classes. Instead of just lecturing while teaching moby dick yes has her students make presentations about the novel in which they can talk about or wrap their take on the story. Professor kim wants the older male professor to strongly support tenure. For yes but she sends us his disapproval. He's played by bob balabagn. Sandra oh's character speaks i. Your tenure has is going to include material on her teaching rain or wouldn't it. I think it's important that you highlight. How innovative pedagogy is the flip classroom specimen of that will be on display in. Today's seminar. Could you maybe include a mention of it. She is hot right now. She has over eight thousand followers on twitter. I mean that's more than all of us. Put together you know who joins himself by the number of his followers. Jim jones david. Koresh has isn't a cult leader. Elliot's uses only twelve followers. I suppose that makes him a loser. Because of her our students are excited about literature that was written hundred and fifty years ago. I know in your. Hey that's right. Now's not my heyday. Look i don't want to pull rank here but as the chair of the department. I knew i'm not saying this. As your superviso-supervisor it is the best thing for the department and the right thing to do for yes or just do it central. Oh welcome back to fresh air. Congratulations on this series. It is a pleasure to have you back on the show. Thank you terry. It's so good to speak to your gun. Are there seems in this series that resonate in your own life about race ethnicity generational conflict. Oh my god. I just just that scene. You see how professor. Kim moment after a moment you see how. She's just shifting and folding herself trying to get what she wants trying to get what she wants out of. Elliot play bob alabama. She's i starts by cajoling and then she starts by kind of like oh bringing him into the cool side to recognize him and then she just gets angry and so something like that. You know like all the different ways you just need to learn to try and get people to do what you want them to do. So you can run your department. I mean i feel all of us understand that the going to your your question about like the greater themes of being a woman and a person of color know in an institution i yeah. I really really understand that profoundly. There's a scene in which there's a korean ceremony held for a one year old. I'll ask you to describe the ceremony. And if you're familiar with it from traditions in your own family or not oh sure. It's a hundred day. Ceremony called toby and basically on the hundredth day of the baby's life. There's a big celebration. There's lots of food but what happens is is that you put all these objects in front of the baby and all these objects means something. A pencil is a writer. You know a pot is shaft. Money is money in the end. it's whatever Whatever the baby crawls to. I and tries to grab is supposedly their destiny. You know tells their future So it's a fun ceremony. Not that i had one. Did your parents have one. When they were growing up. Were know what actually. I don't know whether my parents had one when they grew up. It was a tough time in korea. You know the occupation. And all that stuff so i don't know i should ask that but it was only my brother had one he did. How come he had one. And you didn't come on. I'm not. I'm like the middle child. I'm the second girl hiding. No get one so in the past year or so you became pretty outspoken about anti-asian attacks and crimes and you know this was during covert and it was during the period which i don't know are we still in this period. When there's a lot of anti-asian attacks in part i think. Would you agree that this is in part because of trump when he was president calling covert the chinese virus. You know i. I i would like to put it all on one person but it's not you know. Obviously racism runs deep and it still still going on in a way where people still feel frightened. And they're fighting for their elderly pair appearance and grandparents and their fighting for themselves It's a tough time. It's tough time and says it is a tough time for everyone and it is you know again. What you your point of view and what you make of it I think what you might be referring to is. It's after the shootings in atlanta. I was we. Were shooting in the chair. And i was in pittsburgh and i for me. I don't consider myself a big activist. It's just about the need to connect and it was that week in that we can. I just wanted. I just knew there's got to be there. Had to be a march or rally somewhere in pittsburgh i mean there's a lot of universities there and so i found one and i invited the the cast and crew and it was really tough because again it was during covert and it was even invite the crew to a gathering where where there are lots of people and most everyone was asked but it was important thing for me to do. 'cause i i just felt like i needed to connect with the asian american community and i didn't really. I don't really know what i had to offer other than to say like. Let's let's work through this fear that we have. Because that's that's what will destroy if we if we've been to the fear. Did you experience that fear directly. Oh sure oh sure in the ways of you know when you are known person wearing a mask is of great because knowing because people will give you a little bit more before they can figure out who you are. So i've relished kind of having pockets of anonymity back behind a mask but having said that what has raised is that. Oh i in clearly. An asian lady wearing a mask and sometimes wearing a mask where other people are not wearing a mask and you can just tell i mean as a woman you name. It says as a woman. You're walking somewhere. Let's say it's dark or you're walking through and there's groups of you know dudes you know everything just kind of goes up. You just get more aware. And you're you're you're you're ready for things so i feel like absolutely I know that i know that. I'm tremendously protected by my good fortune and privilege But you know. I'm also still an asian woman. Your parents immigrated from south korea. Did they speak korean in the house when you were growing up..

"What does this mean to you when you sang it. I mean really. Part of the backdrop of the song was a hit during the civil rights movement. And i think respect had a lot of meanings in the song for your listeners. One was you know just the respect you wanted from a man in a relationship but it also had a larger resonance with the civil rights movement kind of larger social cultural sense of respect. Yes in in later times. It was picked up as a battlecry by the civil rights movement. But when i recorded it It was pretty much male female kind thing and and more in a general sense from person to person I'm gonna give you respect. And i'd like to have that respect back or i expect respect to be given back. As we mentioned the song i think resonated with the civil rights movement Your family was good friends with Martin luther king how how well did you know dr king.

"Today. Show is dedicated to aretha. Franklin on columbia records signed aretha in nineteen sixty. The label saw her as a potential jazz star. But you never broke through in nineteen sixty seven. She started recording for the atlantic label with producer. Jerry wexler who was a partner at the label. His specialty was finding great singers and matching them with the right band and backup singers to create a sound that was both artistically true and commercially successful. He led aretha write her own songs. Play piano and use her sisters backup singers. Some of the greatest soul and rhythm and blues recordings wouldn't have been made if it weren't for jerry. Wexler the shortlist of other people. He worked with includes the drifters. Ray charles. bob. Dylan wilson pickett otis redding etta james and solomon burke. Wexler died in two thousand eight. I spoke with him in nineteen ninety-three in front of an audience at a public radio conference in washington. Dc he had written a new memoir called rhythm and the blues. Jerry wexler welcome to fresh air. It's great to be the blog. My book i wanna get started with you work with the retha franklin. I think it's a good place to start if she had made about. Oh ten or so recordings on columbia records before coming to atlantic. John hammond produced her. He was producing her like a jazz singer. Kind of in the dinah washington tradition you when she came to atlanta you work with her. You heard something completely different. What did you hear when you started producing. I heard the aretha franklin who sang in church who sang precious lord when she was thirteen years old and a man in the audience was over comey said he said listen. Listen listened and i listened and it wasn't so much that i tried a new approach to her. It's that what she did fit very well in with what we were doing anyhow. We sat her down at the piano. Play herself which. I don't think she'd done on the records before the not very much. What was it like it muscle shows. What did you hear there in that. Southern sound that you wanted Well it was the way they recorded which was ad lib recording with written arrangements buildings from the get-go just from the chords and the musicians made fabulous entre bution so leaves were arrangements which we all together and they were just as much arrangements as anything that was ever done by henry. Main seaney in the sense of being an arranged piece of music. He took a razor down to muscle shoals recorded like a track and a half with her and there was this really big fight. What was the there was an explosion. That went on because of too much jack daniels and not enough prudence and had to do with ted wide was aretha husband at the time who got into an dangerous over friendly drinking from the same jug with the gentleman who couldn't best be described as a card carrying redneck trumpet player and it got into we call thousands of southern dozens and then it got nasty and the session blew up and we went back to new york with one song complete which was never loved a man and a three piece track on the other side which was to right woman and all we had their rhythm guitar bass and drums which is not a whole lot to go on no vocal. No piano no background vocal. And then we finished by bringing aretha in her sisters into the studio was a pretty good piece of extemporisation in that starting with this very minimal track aretha laid down an organ part and a piano part and then she sang the lead and then she and assist has got to get into the background and it was a very full finished record put together. I'd say what's been showing him. You produced respect. Is there story behind. How the socrates landed on their well. This story is that when otis redding did it It was an entirely different song. The soccer tournaments were aretha. Franklin's idea where she injected into the song which noted certain idea of social respect probably the notion of ethnic respect combined with a little judicious loop brigetti on her pot. The respect that she was talking about was what you might go very bluntly called proper sexual attention but it was. Her trans transmutation of otis reddings little southern song. As a matter of fact i was mixing the record in our studio pro and oldest walked in. He said that little gal done took my song but he meant it in a very kindly way. 'cause he saw the cash registers. Your first studio was actually the office of atlanta crackers. Because when alantic was young he didn't have a studio. So would you do. You'd move out the chairs into the hallway to record. We did have a studio office and it was a studio because we had equipment in my partner. And i shared this big room. We had two desks. That were catty-cornered kanter toward each other. And what we do is push them against the war stack them and then our engineer dowd. Which set out cam. Chairs a few microphones and mike in the hall for echo. You work with otis redding a lot. His career. I was not honest as producer. I want you to realize that. Otis was produced at stax records in memphis by that great team. Jim stewart and book athenian geez. It's the especially steve cropper. You saw him change a lot as he became an what was he like in the beginning before he was very famous. When what was. This was very simple very unaffected by. He had the magic and when he came to new york after his first hit record. I picked them up the airport. No road east. Nobody no nothing just Just solo this and he opened at the apollo and he just stood there just straight on with his arms at his side. Didn't move another one. Who started like that was marvin gaye. But they learned some stagecraft. But what really kicked autists into moving was having to follow. Sam and dave hughes the be described as stateful of jackie. Wilson's really great. Now we were talking before. Hey you brought aretha franklin down to muscle shoals alabama you wilson. Pickett down too nervous to record write. You really loved southern sound. That was coming out of the bands. There why did you think of bringing him there. Well everything was winding down in new york. I mean it was entropy. We couldn't get our own way. We had been very successful year after year but our style of recording was regular old time standard style using ranges with written arrangements. Now when you have to change an arrangement and you almost always do To accommodate the vicissitudes of way you're going. It's toll agony for the entrepreneur to see that clock on around while a man is going around with an eraser erasing little notes on thirteen charts and this sudden style recording. Where is just all you have is called indications you go out. You're single lick. Do it like this fellow's bang. Here's the new cord. But maybe that's overstating but actually there's a spontaneity and fantastic new element that content because the musicians organic.

"On new during your formative years First of all. Let's talk a little bit about your father. The reverend c l franklin. He was one of the most popular preachers of his generation. He was nationally known through his tours. And through a think radio broadcasts as well as recordings you you say in the book that church nurses carried smelling salts to revive worshippers who are overcome the of fainting by the spirit. Or by your mother sermons. What was it like for you to watch your father speak and people fainting in church. Well was tremendous. I love going to church. I enjoyed being part of the choir and just doing things in and around the church But as a as a young girl I certainly enjoyed watching and listening to dad. You toured with your father Through churches Through the deep south. And i'm wondering what it was like for you. During the days of segregation to tour through the deep south you know have that compared to what you were used to in detroit. Well it certainly was. Not what i was used to or accustomed to in detroit but on the other hand it was It was not that bad. We didn't have extreme experiences Of any kind but there were times that we were asked to go to the back of the restaurant. say or we couldn't use the bathrooms and We got information that golf. You could use the bathrooms there if you and we didn't buy gas where we could not use the restrooms so we went to golf a lot. I must tell you you say about your father. He was a minister he was also a man and that some women pursued him aggressively night and day. They did so so he. He wasn't uncomfortable with that. I have no idea. I never discussed it with him and he never discussed that sort of thing with with his children but as children we could certainly see that Women were kind of aggressively taking off behind him. He was single at the time and Sometimes you might see it with lady sitting on the front row A little high skirts little high little short things like that or In other ways that We're all familiar with you. Know when women are interested. I thought i'd play an excerpt from what is perhaps his most famous recorded sermon. The eagles stirrup since. We'll only be hearing. An excerpt is to get a sense of his style of preaching. Can you tell us a little bit. About what the sermon was actually about having to do As i equated to life two children to the parental function in the in the raising of Wants children and in certain other ways They're parallels to your personal life. I guess as aretha franklin. Let's hear an excerpt of sturman preached by her father. Reverend c l franklin setback that the man who had a pulse a fall but he raised chickens for the market and in his. He discovered a strange looking bird. That was better much on lack chickens. Only are and then pay too much attention as that. This strange looking bird was on the usual a little chicken. Yeah legals the legal. he said. kiss eagle. Here you're going to get tired of the ground need you. The hey ahead take saw. That's aretha franklin late father reverend. Ceo franken many singers. Who grew up in the church weren't allowed by their parents to listen to or to perform pop music. It wasn't that way in your family. What did your father think about pop. Music and jazz. My dad. i think appreciated gifted artist. We just didn't have that problem in our home. And he never tried to limit us in any way with respect to music or anything like that. Was you describing your new autobiography gray. Performance like net coal and art. Tatum knew your father. And with sometimes be in your living room at the piano that must have been uh-huh Are tatum was often visitor and our home. He was very good. Friend of my dad's Oscar peterson and At the price suck Mail jackson. Of course james and he loves sam sam cooke And he just really very broadly. Appreciate it Ones artistry when they were truly gifted and really good. Will you were living in detroit when you decided to make pop records. I mean the the obvious choice. I suppose it would have been motown. Especially since berry gordy was a friend of the family. I guess more time it was a very new label at the time but Did you consider motown Actually no i really did not My dad and i had talked about it and we really kind of had our site set on columbia records out of new york. We knew that columbia was a worldwide label and I think the feeling probably was that The promotion would be better than say a motown the distribution and the promotion and so on and so we just kind of maintain that feeling that columbia and other major record labels were the people that we wanted to talk to well. You were signed that columbia by john hammond. Who had earlier signed count. Basie and later. Signed bob dylan. And bruce springsteen wanna play the first.

Sit in the world of video games. and ryan reynolds please. This non player character in a video game called free city which is An extremely violent game in which she's a bank teller In his beautiful city where violence and crime is occurring all around him And he has to go through the same day over and over again. Like groundhog day But suddenly as a result of meeting the beautiful avatar of one of the players he begins to develop a self awareness and it turns out that this evolution so that he's becoming an independent minded person. is due to some secret. Coding in the game That the owner current owner. The game doesn't really know anything about and more and more. This fellow guy becomes an independent actor in the game and a to other non player characters leading them in rebellion against the Really slavery To which they're committed by the rules of the game And the owner of the game tries to put a stop by this. Pull the plug In order to protect his investment while two of his the ones who actually put this code in the game Originally to make it possible for a character to develop in this way of fight against his attempt to shut down the game. So you've got action in the video game and you've got action outside the video game. And it all culminates in a big finale. Filled with cgi affects Where guy finally tries to escape the prison of free city. That's what the game is all about And frankly i sound a good deal of this movie to be kind of amusing but it gets worse as it goes along and i. I was really bored by the big tedious. Thirty minute finale. With all its fights and action and chases I thought that got really really dull after awhile. You imagine what What somebody like hitchcock or capra would say if they could come back and look at today's movies they'd be horrified absolutely horrified. They actually believe that movies were about something human nowadays. of course. they're not at all in this film. The artificial intelligence figures are really more human than the people outside. The game I it's a strange set of affairs. I suppose gamers will really enjoy this movie For the rest of us. It's pure escapism. If you put your brain on hold you might like it But if you think about it afterwards you're going to think it's really dumb. I'm a gamer. And i it sounds really dumb. I don't have any interest in seeing all right. That one's called free guy next up a movie about aretha. Franklin how she became the legend. She still is. It's called respect..

Beth welcome on the show. Thanks Josh. Great to see you great to be here. And our other guests is Jasmine crow who is the CEO and founder of Gooder, which is a company that I am fascinated by I. think it's one of the more insightful companies that I've come across. Recently I also have a lot of questions for you Jasmin about how the idea came to you, but but welcome on the show. Thanks so much gas and happy to be here. Of course, we've got Freddie caressed my co host. Zeroed IPO your morning Josh, how you doing good I bet and Jasmine, nice to see you. Thanks for joining us today I'm super excited about today. Yeah me too good to see you. Well, let's dive right in because we have a lot to talk about Jasmine I wanNA start with you and I want to understand I want our audience to understand where you're coming from. When you started gooder there's some kind of basic facts that I want our audience to understand domestically we are wasting seventy-two billion pounds of food every year while forty two million people are struggling with food insecurity absolutely that's a foundational mess. And it's even worse. Now, I'll of everything that's happening with current virus who are wasting more food and more people are going hungry. So it is a huge issue. Yeah. I mean just to be clear before this even. I read somewhere that we were wasting about a quarter trillion dollars a year on food in the United States if people number eight is that right? Yeah. Right Frederick in. So I guess to put an even more simpler context about two percent of GDP is on wasted food for that's a lot of money spent on food that never gets eaten in this country does Like many people I have some passing familiarity with this I. Read about it I don't even know where to start and it seems like maybe you go out and you you know you try to donate food as best you can and and I think that's maybe where you started. Yeah and it transformed into something quite extraordinary. So yeah if you know Josh I started feeding people that were experiencing hunger and homelessness in two thousand thirteen out of my apartment in Atlanta Georgia So that's where got started I found a parking. Lot I drove past it one day and I just saw hundreds of people that were homeless in in something kind of just pulled on my heartstrings at that moment and I said I wanNA help you know what do I didn't have a ton of money and I knew I could cook and so I just went home I post it on facebook I mean Sunday. I'm going to go downtown and I'm going to feed on the streets. If. You want to join me I had about twenty volunteers I made a spaghetti dinner. And loved it. You know brought out my little beats pill at the time, which wasn't that loud outside. Dating us, you're dating we know exactly when you're store your. Heckling when it happened so I really wasn't that loud music thing. But I have bad and you know the idea was it would be old school kind of Sunday music why Jackson five and Aretha Franklin James Brown like this classic kind of music and a good Sunday dinner, and that's how it all got started in. So of eighty own from one of my pop up restaurants went viral on facebook and people are saying this is so amazing which restaurants donate the food and the reality was nobody I was couponing on price matching I always say, I'm the reason Walmart doesn't price-match anymore I definitely feel like i. gave them a run for him. And then I was cooking thing taking it downtown, serving it coming home cleaning up, and so it would take me like forty hours every week I did this and I started researching food ways and was really like upset like I can't believe this much food goes to waste in here I. Am you know putting together five dollar donations and my own money and trying to make these feeding is happening to feed five hundred people

Make a will for free with Freewill

"A lot of US never get around to creating a will to make it easier. The APP free will would like to invite you to use their free online tools. co-founder Jenny Chia sprawling is here to tell us about it hi Jenny. So free will is a website that anyone can make a free state plan on, so that includes a will help care directive and a power of attorney. It's really easy process. You just go to www dot, free dot com, and you answer a series of questions very similar to when attorney might ask you in person, and our software takes those answers and populates a form a legal document that you can then print inside with witnesses and your gotten so on average it takes users about twenty minutes to get a completely free estate plan set up. Already your called free will so this is a totally one hundred percent free will. That's right. It's only possible through the support of nonprofits, so we get one hundred percent of revenue from nonprofits that WanNa make it easy for people to not only set up their estate plans, but also potentially, but you're not required to leave money for charities. Okay because I know people spend a lot of money to lawyers to get will's made. That's right and we think it should be very different access to lies a huge problem in the United States today instead, so we see that you know underrepresented communities have half the rate of will writing than majority communities, and that ends up being a huge barrier to wealth transfer from generation to generation. Some people just never get around to it, aretha. Franklin died without a will. Acting, right and princess well. Wow crazy. So, how long has the been out? It's been out for about three years, and we're actually experiencing a huge spike in demand right now since Kovic started booth, because people are actually able to or think about mortality for the first time, and having really important conversations with their family about what their hopes and dreams are if they were to pass away. How long does it take to create a will on the APP? On average less than twenty minutes. Okay what what motivated to start the at. I the big motivation. Is that you know we talked to a lot of people about their charitable giving and realized a lot of people don't have the ability to gave large amounts of money while. They're saving for their mortgage. Their kids educations things like that, but when they pass away, they might own a home and be willing to share a kind of five or ten percent of that with charity, and it turns out. This kind of charitable giving is actually the largest type of giving. On average in a person's life, so we started free well with the promise of making Book Estate Planning on charitable, giving in not really easy, and we've now raised over one point five billion dollars in commitments attorneys.

To setup protection for your pets and caretakers.

Double again I will. Note that is. Are You you're right I'm all right I can believe it's the fifteen. Well when I came up with the idea, let's just keep doing the daily podcast. Slams that we promised we would at the start of the, even though there's no tennis by watching lots of action, the past I thought it'd be easy. Turns out then we got lots of ideas about how to do it. Including interviewing everybody, we possibly could find relevant to each match, and that's what we've done again today. for Simona halep against Sloan Stevens 2018 final, and we've got down K. Hilas special guest coach to Simona Halep, and yes, it's been a long and tiring journey to get through today fifteen of these podcasts. We've enjoyed it immensely. I think it's fair to say. So let's get cracking with this one. This match has a lot to it. Doesn't it the whole saga because? Simona. Is it three Grand Slam. She already played. At the to that point and not. Finals yeah, yeah. She played the two, thousand, fourteen and final, and lost in three to Sharapova. She'd played the two thousand, seventeen, French Open final and lost in three Ostapenko, and she played the twenty eighteen Australian Open. Final just a few months before they send those to Wozniacki all three senators. She played well in all of them. She had a lead in all of them and lost all of them. And it was becoming a real. Saga actually. Can help get over the, line. 2018, you say. You want some facts about two thousand eighteen. We. Well, it's not long ago, so you can probably remember most of this Prince Harry and Meghan markle married. Thing right I hosted a semi. Gathering in the garden, did you did you was on the invitation? To, clarify with a few friends and family that I wasn't like a rabid royalist, and it was just an excuse to make some cake and sausage rolls. The I remember seeing the pictures. Wasn't invited that. We can handle it. aretha Franklin and Stephen Hawkins' both died toys. R.. US went bankrupt. Not Quite sure why that to my list, but it is. I'm not sure nothing either. Toys R. US went bankrupt and student Matt's became Grad Matt became Matt. Two thousand eighteen was a big. And formation. Toys R. US, they might. How do you feel about that? No I think it was pressed. Until Lo que, but so I was reading it. I won't saw. Phillips scattered toys R. US In writing when I was about five. States have good stories. Did you speak for? Him! I remember being very excited because it was circuit in the gopher. Time, I was at my dad. That's a long time ago yet. Longtime Gay and I think it was. Joseph in mazing technical latrine time as well right Matt, wasn't even Baby Matt at this point. He's never even heard of these people. You don't know Gordon the gopher is Dima. No. Right so. Just, minded ninety correction. You didn't mention that freedom got promoted into anti eighteen. Thank you for pointing that out. Rather than to. And it didn't last long. It's as relevant as toys R. US, thank you I so. Yes, so we have this final on our hands between SMYRNA HALEP and Sloan seems and it was one that. I was I was looking forward to. A tennis match in. It's just in its own right of these two players battling it out because I thought it could be a really good final. And, should he? I think it ended up exceeding all of those expectations and You're quite right Catherine when you talk about the number of finals, the the salmon halibut already been in, and it was similar to play as we think of that. We've already covered here in this running relived series like even lendl trying to win. A A I slam Andy Murray course. It took him a few guys. Goran Ivanisevic but Simona Halla. Yeah, she already had three. She'd had Darren K Hill by his side for awhile by this point, so let's hear from him about the journey that led to this moments. Together for about three us before she played that particular foreign against flown in two thousand and nineteen and I guess the memory of what happened in two thousand, seventeen, against Ostapenko, as well was brought in the full fun of Amazon so for her to go out and do what she did. And now they say that both of you most destinations. You can't get there unless you go to refund pain a tough road and that was kind of the journey that some had had even before I came along. She might the final. Open and lost Marie shower. Piping, a great match on six four on the third added chances in that one, and then to lose to paint code and then the Knicks Jay come back, an inbetween that of course remember the final that she applied at the open against the Yankee which was another great match, and just even getting to the final at the Australian Open was itself, so I I think that helped a lot. She learned a lot from that particular tournament, and when she got to the final at a French. Against Launch, he had a little extra confidence and belief in a self to finally get it done.

Some of US wouldn't see in public if someone paid us. We'll sing in the shower without embarrassment. Believe it or not there is a scientific explanation behind our soapy. Musical stylings first. Let's look at why we're relaxed enough in the shower to bust into song. I think about it. You don't sing when you're sad unless you're singing the blues. Maybe for many people shower times the only time they're alone all day. You're in a warm small safe environment. You're comfortable enough to be in the buff stress literally washes off of you when you relax your brain releases dopamine which can give your creative juices a jump start. Warm waters rushing over you and now you're relaxed and feeling good. It turns out that singing makes you feel even better singing because of the breathing that you put into.

I think of it as a primitive auto tune. It makes you sound better than you normally would. Which is a confidence boost? We don't sing in the shower simply because we have that song stuck in our heads. You know the one it turns out. We do it for many reasons. Stress Relief happiness great acoustics or maybe just because we like to hear our own voices no matter what the reason keep it up. It's good for you and if you've never tried it pick a song and put on your own private concert.

I spoke with Lena on tour with her one woman show and asked her about her status as a living legend laughs. Ask that question yet. And everybody needs. City has asked me I think I think what you really mean is survival aval. I've been around long time. Yeah feels good to live this long. I I hope that My youngest granddaughter. WHO's thirteen will be less blase then my other ones who are eighteen and sixteen Then not interested in traveling abroad.

Miss Horn has always been an outspoken advocate of civil rights do on the historic march on Washington in nineteen eighteen sixty three. She addressed a crowd of demonstrators. Miss Horn help breakdown. Jim Crow and entertainment during the nineteen forties and fifties by insisting on contracts ensuring that blacks could not be barred from her performances in white establishments she also refused to entertain white. I troops during World War Two unless black soldiers were omitted. Also I asked if she considered herself a pioneer and about the state of blacks in the entertainment aiming industry and why. It wasn't portent for Lena. Horne to speak up about civil rights. Lena Lena Horne. I spoke up for myself often. The three musicians or the six musicians that toured with the weren't allowed to stay where I could We will all not allowed to go on a swimming pool. Awesome had nothing to do with anything except personal attitudes certain things. I didn't realize that I was speaking for anybody. Nobody else until away in the nineteen late nineteen forties and of course as I said I was raised by very learn Millerton grandmother. I think most of us have grandmother so now passed and She just told me that I was human like everybody else. The communism that hot and the movies suffering and Certainly TV v is doing. What's tried and true over and over again so I would say they. They face certain obstacles not to do rosalie lap and not to do with racism but The first choice That that is not the first to be hired my people but I think that's due to the economy Well for waters May Miss Smith and and the rest of them. That was a great black singers. Called Black Patu blew. My Father Remembers who sang. Who was an opera star and she was named after Adalina passive white thing? Thanks so all those late some groundwork to you. Know I'm a johnny-come-lately Lena. Horne has never been one to avoid controversy in nineteen eighteen fifty. She announced her three year. Old Marriage to Linney Hayden her white musical mentor at MGM Studios and a time. When interracial marriages were still illegal and California? Her marriage proved to be one of the most durable ones in Hollywood it ended in nineteen seventy one would hayden's death also within eighteen months. Lena Sun Teddy Jones died of chronic kidney ailment and her father Ted Horn died. Lena reveals how she was able to cope with such such a devastating loss. I have no idea. It's must be the way everybody else. Does you know I. I wasn't unique. It just happened that There were three people that the dia respected terribly loved a lot but got The man upstairs take scale that you know you grave you agree but you put it to use. It's it's a positive thing sometime and every one of them had been nice to me and taught me a lot so I was not left Like the woman who sometime doesn't want to leave the husband who abuses her because she doesn't know how to work. They taught me how to work and until I was able to survive and take care of my responsibilities in the early nineteen fifties due to McCarthyism her friendship with singer activist. Paul Robinson Kassir to be blacklisted. In television since then Lena has had two specials which she has headlined. Harry and Lena with Harry Belafonte in nineteen seventy and Lena and Tony with Tony Bennett. In nineteen seventy two. She has also made numerous television guest guest appearances including the TV series Sanford and son. I love red. We've known each other long time and I knew him before he was Famous to the world. I knew him when he only had certain places to work and then he was brilliant. Then and I'm just. I was just happy that he had been discovered. You know what I mean. Miss Hololens first Broadway show in which she start was in Jamaica in nineteen nineteen fifty seven. She will probably be most remembered for her role in the Broadway musical.

Medicine breast cancer is not something to play with that's tough. But she does look great. She looks healthy. And hopefully, she can continue to fight this. That's tough. When I remember right after I was on pawn stars. There were these rumors that Trump had died and people were freaking out, and they were calling me. And I'm not that. I know of I, you know, and I, and you know, so the media and rumors could spread really bad. And that's a big problem with fake news out there. However, what bothers me just a little bit about this whole story is remember when Aretha Franklin had been allegedly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. And I love Aretha. I mean, she just she has had so much SAS and really knew how to deal with the media, and she stopped that story straight say not true. You know, I'm fine. Basically. She stopped. She she put an end to any rumors of her having pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately, she did have it. And she died. And so I get a little nervous when rumors are out there. And hearing people say not true. And then later they end up being true.

Even celebrities do it, according to people magazine after Jack black likes to belt out Led Zeppelin and Wycliffe Sean digs a little Bruce Springsteen. Everyone's a rockstar in the bathroom, whether you have a voice like Aretha Franklin or couldn't carry a melody if it had a handle, but have you ever wondered about this non some of us wouldn't sing in public?

This gives you better circulation which in turn improves, your body and mood, and because you have to breathe a little deeper to belt out a song. You get some of the same relaxation and mind clearing benefits as meditation. Another neat thing is that when you're singing, you can't really think about your problems more stress relief. But the best thing about sending in the shower, the acoustics you couldn't ask for a better sound system than a bathroom because bathroom tiles, don't absorb sound. Your voice bounces back and forth around the room before fading away. And because the shower is a small space. It boosts your voice and even adds a little base making your singing sound more powerful. The sound bouncing also. As your vocal styling, a reverse effect, which mixer voice hang in the air longer and evens out variations in your singing, think of it as a primitive auto tune. It makes you sound better than you normally would which is a confidence boost we don't sing in the shower simply because we have that song. Stuck in our heads. You know, the one it turns out, we do it for many reasons. Stress relief happiness, great acoustics or maybe just because we like to hear our own voices. No matter what the reason keep it up.
