"ashanti" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing
"To the world of film and TV and joining me is ashanti onkar whose film TV and culture commentator, ashanti, welcome to the briefing. Now, there seems to be a huge interest in boxing at the moment, particularly from new and younger audiences. Now you saw creed three that's the overall 9th installment in the rocky film series. How was it? Oh gosh, I was actually really blown away by it. I didn't quite know what to expect when I went in there because Michael B. Jordan, who is playing the titular character of creed, he is actually directed this film and I kind of thought, wow, this is a new thing for Michael B. Jordan to also play himself play that character and also direct himself. But he has done a fabulous job with it. And he has his formidable for most of us who have watched the marvel film ant man and quantumania. Jonathan majors is coming as is fantastic character of Kang. And it feels like he has done this in parallel where he's brought this antagonist character that is deeply deeply jarring when you watch him. And you're feeling very frightened when watching him. But you also see a lot of male vulnerability. You see the backgrounds, these two, you know, they were boys who knew each other when they were younger. Here they are as men and things have changed. And one of them has become spectacularly successful. That's Michael B. Jordan's Apollo creed character. Sorry, Adonis creed a character talking about his dad there. Apollo creed. And with Jonathan majors as Damien, AKA dame Anderson, who's been in jail for 18 years, he's come out with nothing, but he wants once this championship. And boxing, as you said, is something that audiences are really looking into the younger younger generation are really into sports. And seeing sports films and these sort of franchise sizes, franchises are really working at the moment. And I want to just talking there about male vulnerability. If that has changed over these massive 9 films, if we've gone from really it being very, very macho, and that kind of sentiment not being expressed to a much more one of the better word woke way of dealing with it now. Indeed, indeed, your spot on. What we are seeing now is that we can see these guys expressing their most deep feelings and those saddest moments from their lives. And the horrors they have faced as children and being able to kind of cry through it, which I felt very gratified seeing that. And also on top of that, we are getting to see, for example, in this particular film, you're getting to see that creed now has, you know, he's married to tes Thompson's character Bianca, who is a pop star. She has hearing difficulties. They have a child also who everybody talks to with sign language, which again, this is not the sort of series we saw back in the day. You know, we never saw this in any franchise. We are seeing that people can live normal lives, even if they have a disability, for example. And that felt really, really good to me because I feel like normal life is being mirrored a lot more without this veneer of pay, we're really macho guys. You know, you get to see a little bit of that, but you also get to see this other side, the flip side, which I feel is so important. Now, tell us your thoughts on consultant, which is on prime. Oh my gosh, I actually have a smile thing. There's even though this is a very, very dark thriller. Christopher waltz, who has two baftas two Oscars, one of the best actors out there. He comes in playing the consultant. And I come from the corporate background, where I've seen the consultants come in and take over workplace. So quickly. And this is exactly what he does, but he's one solo consultant who walks into this company called cop war. He's very mysterious. So this guy, his name is Regis pat off. It's a name that will stick to your head from the minute he walks in because Christopher was embodies this character so well. He's walking into a mobile gaming company. The CEO has been mysteriously murdered. I don't want to give you a spoiler to say how. But let's just say you were gasp when that happens. And this is a young 20 year old CEO who is Korean, and he has been, you know, his name is sang. And when he's kind of topped off, this guy walks in as a consultant and he takes over the company in a way that will dazzle you. It will shock you. It'll also kind of remind you of workplace politics, the way people maneuver themselves around each other, how people want to move ahead and what they are willing to do to do that. That sounds like you're giving that one very much the thumbs up. Absolutely. 100%. I binged it in one in one girl on Prime Video. Now, the other night I watched the strays on Netflix and I understand you've seen it too. What did you think? Oh gosh, yes, I've seen it. I've also had a chat with Ashley medica who plays neve AKA Cheryl in this film.

The Floor, not the Ceiling: The Supreme Court in 2021
"Welcome back background boroughs. Ashanti here and we have another episode for today. I'm so excited to talk to. Bagnoli gilmore the state media campaigns director for planned parenthood federation of america onion. How're you doing today and doing. Well thank you so much for having me very excited to. Have you very excited to talk about the important work that you do today at planned. Parenthood really diving into the attacks that we've been seeing on reproductive justice reproductive freedom abortion rights and educating our listeners on how they can help fight back before we dive in intrude fashion. We have to know what brought you to this work awesome. Well i am a huge fan of your work and this podcast. I'm really excited to be here a little bit about me. I am in asian american woman. Born and bred in white middle america foreign raised in kansas city missouri. Where i still live today doing this work before coming into reproductive rights work. I was a journalist for ten years. And i think my work is a reporter. Gave me a front row seat to the every day. Impact that policies have on our lives. I was a healthcare reporter and solve the direct line between what happens in our state legislatures. What happens in our city. Councils and how that impacts our daily lives in how we go about it. And in the midwest that also means a very white dominant culture that sets the tone and the conversation and passes policies in that lens and i spent ten years covering those issues and decided to transition into media work for an advocacy organization that i have long admired and loved for the work that we do at our health centers across the country though now i focused on state policies state fights as we call it here at planned. Parenthood and the intersection. Those policies have on our ability to access reproductive healthcare went you said about how white men dominate policy. It's so true. And i want us to talk about what. We're seeing happening at state houses across the country. Most our listeners. Know the bg is one thing that i do my full time. Job is on the president of merge we focus on recruiting and training democratic women to run for office and we've had a huge focus on state houses in making sure that we're getting democratic women in there. I love talking abou nevada. Colorado new mexico all of those states are majority women and their state houses due to emerge alums and we see the impact that women have on the policies that come out and in a lot of the houses though where unfortunately seeing policy that is not the best when it's coming to abortion access so only two months into twenty twenty one were seeing these attacks on reproductive freedom in state houses and this statistic is crazy more than one hundred bills have been introduced in state houses in the past few weeks that target abortion access. There are so many reasons why state legislators are important. But this is one of the main ones hang you tell us about some of the things that are happening. Yeah impact that number continues to grow today when we're talking. That number is up to more than one hundred and eighty anti-abortion bills that have been filed or are pending an in early february. And that's why all. Because i only saw that hundred number last week. Yep we've seen almost another hundred a week. Yup absolutely And over forty. Five percent of those bills are some form of an abortion ban. And so you know. I think we're sitting at a moment where we are staring at an immense amount of opportunity and hope and change because of new presidential administration because of pro reproductive healthcare majority in congress yet our state legislatures do not reflect this reality where policies are made. I believe it is twenty nine states right now where anti-abortion politicians hold majorities twenty nine states over half And we are seeing a targeted attack on reproductive freedom our ability to control our bodies in lives because again this is about power and control. This conversation is rooted in white supremacy and has nothing to do with the health and wellbeing of any person who needs access to health care with really clear about that because that is what you will hear these politicians wax on about right and they'll even coop racial justice movements to talk about you know black babies and abortion end it is all rooted in white supremacy and the real question that we need to answer is who gets power and control of our bodies and our lives and our future right it be the politician predominantly white men or should it be being able to control that and so these are the policies that are getting past at the state level. And they're not just. Abortion bans a lot of these. The majority of these bills are incremental restrictions. That make it harder. Particularly on people with low incomes women people of color emigrants to access reproductive healthcare basic healthcare birth control annual exams cancer screening and of course abortion.
Vaccines, Trust, and the Global Pandemic
"Welcome back brown roles. this is a shanty. The host of the brown rose guy to politics podcast anti day. We are continuing our conversations with planned parenthood about the first one hundred days of the biden harris administration and we are joined by another amazing woman. Who's a part of the planned parenthood. It's family doctor krishna. Hadja who is the vice president of quality care and health equity doctor. Thank you so much for joining us. Today i'm super glad to be here. Ashanti thank you. I love having doctors on the podcast. Thank you planned parenthood. It makes me feel so fancy. Can you tell us a little bit about your career path. Went you wanna be a doctor. What made you wanna focus on women's healthcare. And what brought you to planned. parenthood sure. I am an adolescent medicine. Doctor cells start with that. Which means that. I am a person who specializes in taking care of teenagers. And i think i was drawn to that because first of all teenagers are fascinating there. At a very interesting time in life we know with so many things going on socially emotionally and physically and they think i. i'm also very drawn to the intersections. Between people's health and other aspects of their life and in adolescent medicine those things are just really at the forefront and those include things like education and policies that impact on the people's access to care and information. Those are all the same things that i that really drew me to planned. Parenthood as an organization because our organization has those pillars of care education research and advocacy. And so for me. You can't have health without any of those four in so just a tremendous opportunity to work for an organization that that really leans into all of those. You agree organization. Let's get to talking about the first one hundred days of the biden harris administration is only been a couple of days but they have been doing a what we saw the huge stack of executive orders. That president biden signed. And even before they took office they talked a lot about how cove it and the pandemic. And we know that it's absolutely in the forefront of what are going to be focusing on the first one hundred days and we've seen so much activity on it in the first days it's really hard to keep up. So can you tell us a little bit about where we are at with the federal rollout of a vaccine. And what are the things that you think will see within the next few weeks. Yes there really has been a lot of activity and as someone who is a clinician and a public health person. I am just so thankful. I'm an and as a scientist. I'm just so grateful that they are coming in to this. Knowing how critical this is to everything that's going on in our country and really leading with experts and really bringing science to bear. I think the fact that they have had to do so much in the few days that they've had shows how much was not done before. That should have been done over this past year. And i think as someone who has worked on our response to covid as an organization both at our national office as well as across our affiliates. I can say that this this year has just been extremely disappointing in terms of the support. That people have had for what was needed in this pandemic in terms of the vaccine. You know one of the things is obviously. We are all very excited to have a vaccine for this this disease. And it's vitally important because so many people have died and we need to provide more people from dying at the same time. This pandemic has clearly shown us that you know health is going beyond what is happening in clinical care and so many inequities in our society show up in health outcomes in how this pandemic has really affected. People in that same thing is true with regard to how this vaccine is rolling out and how people are going to accept it. And so i think there's a lot of promise in still a lot of work to come with regard to the vaccine rollout. India mentioned your work with helping planned parenthood by the pandemic. It was just so important last year. We're now entering the second year of the pandemic to have organizations like planned parenthood that we could trust because you cannot trust anything unfortunately that was coming out of the administration. So what are some ways that planned. Parenthood has worked and will work to help. Come at the pandemic. thank you for that. I think i mentioned earlier about why. I was drawn to the organization of planned parenthood because of the multiple aspects of our mission. And i think at the foundation. We truly believe that people need to have the best evidence based scientific information and care and access in order to be able to live their healthiest lives and that is really how we have approached the pandemic as well. Certainly we know that the care that is provided at planned. Parenthood health centres is essential to people and is time sensitive and so from the beginning. We have worked really hard to make sure that all of our affiliates have access to the highest quality of information to make decisions all of our affiliates have taken steps to ensure that their health centers are safe places to work in to come in to be seen as a patient. We also had a lot of work to support our affiliates to transition care where possible to virtual care. This was work that had started. Before the pandemic in really the pandemic made it a necessity to accelerate that work and so we have affiliates that have really leaned in and just even more built out their capacity to meet people where they are in ways during this time because we know that people still need their birth control people still need abortions people still need to get tested for media or hiv. The can't be put off for a pandemic when this whole situation started. I don't think any of us thought that we would be here a yearly. Either still at home. And that's extremely disappointing. But regardless of people's healthcare couldn't wait and so our affiliates i. it's just been amazing to see how hard they have worked to make sure that their patients could continue to get the care. They need during this really difficult time.

I would never do it again. What was it That was just the brand name. I don't think it's. I think it is the brand name but it was just like very concentrated even the small dosage that he gave me was just really concentrated. In i was i did not like it at all When i often get too high. I describe it as the inbetween. The in between for me is you've seen the movie inception right. yes in how. It's kind of like that kaleidoscope like everything's like collapsing on itself. So it's almost like vertigo. But not really. And i call it the between and if you if any of my friends have ever spoke to me. They know when. I'm in the inbetween. Because i was started leaning up against the wall. Just just that. I can keep my balance. Because i'm like i don't like this. I don't like this. And if i sit down then it i feel like it's worse so i have to stand up in like brace myself because you're trying to keep the walls up exactly like stop collapsing. That's so interesting. That sitting down makes it worse yet. I've tried. I've also disappeared out of the room like that. We were smoking and mike okay. I'm gonna go and just lay down like i'm feeling it i'm just gonna disappear in. You won't see me anymore. I am done so this brings up the question. Have you ever had any hallucinations while high on weed I can't say that. I have outside of the like inbetween. Nah it's more of a feeling that this thing is sort of happening to your brain but it's not. Yeah yeah yeah no no no elucidations. Unless you want to consider the inbetween i mean.

So early on I got involved in a right out of college classmates run for city also in Knoxville Tennessee because I went away to ABC you is well, it's our on his campaign and then my full time job was at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and director was a county commissioner who became the first woman mayor of Maciel Tennessee and I came back home and I was involved with organized Labor at jobs with justice in ended up having. To me that I needed to run for office in. So because my friends mostly black and Brown women encouraged me to run for office. That's how I. Got Involved I love it in Y'all Attica is my emerge sister she went through emerged Kentucky and I remember the first time. I. Got to email her for something and I was so excited because I finally get to work with Atacan. Something is your pie vaccine my email she said, hey, queen and I almost died unlike y'all Attica call me queen because that's the way I, feel about her so you are just so fabulous and I wanNA start with having. US. Talk about retailers case because I think there's so much here particularly with you wrap Scott you just had an op Ed in the Washington Post after the verdict you are out protesting with your daughter named Ashanti another reason why Atacan I are meant to be best friends and you were arrested in. You've been dealing with the aftermath of that. You've sponsored Brianna Law for Kentucky. You're the only black woman currently in the Kentucky State House. So let's let's dissect this case in state's attorney boy I. Know You have a lot to add is the fact that there were no knock warrants how they handle just paperwork body cameras the grand jury I know that something that has really piece Pete People's interests about this grand jury in Oh what does this attorney general deal? So Rep Scott First let's talk about your op-ed why you felt you had to write it in a cave really personal place you said, this is personal to me. Sean in and I'm on this podcast with Queens. Come on State Attorney Ray boy This is power in so. Yes I happy that Opportunity Washington Post invited me to write a piece just from the perspective whatever that was on things going on here in Louisville Kentucky, and so that's exactly what I did I poured my heart into it as a mother of two black children. Masan is the same age as Taylor Madonna's nineteen. She wanted to be an emt in them. Brianna Taylor was murdered and she said to me Ma that didn't protect her from police violence I'm not sure this. So this is really pulling on us in shanty the people relieving leading the Front Lines here in Louisville for justice for Taylor are mostly women is so we're feeling this heavily. So yes, we've back to now to grandeur WANNA speak out. So that says to me that the Attorney General for Kentucky was so inept that in such a failure that you have rand jurors who want the right to speak out to say, he did not give us all of the options in front of us. There was no one there to speak for Briana Taylor in that this whole process was a sham that's where we all right now that says something about the continued. Kushner justice for Taylor in that's why we won't give up and that's why this movement is sustained
Is LinkedIn ready for Black LinkedIn?
"Lipton has a reputation for being all businesses, but that has been changing recently especially in the last four months workers who are at home and trying to navigate racial upheaval in America are turning to Lincoln to talk about race and activism especially as it relates to work. Black. Workers say it's great that these conversations are happening on the Microsoft owned platform because so many executives and company decision makers are on Lincoln. Ashanti Martin wrote about this for the new. York Times. She said workers are being as she put it black any black black on Lincoln and lots of folks just aren't sure how to react. My first example in the article was that I e should Joseph made a post about companies who bring out there quote House Negro to deal with the difficult black employees visit tricky conversation because I could see how the word Ingo could be labeled as inflammatory. But the fact of the matter is that among black people understand these are these are conversations we have about the House Negro versus the Field Negro why does it matter for authentic black voices to appear on? Lincoln specifically as compared to say twitter. A lot of the discussion that you're seeing on link in is that how black people present themselves is often decided from a white perspective and I think the authenticity factor is a pushback is people demanding to be recognized for their full selves, but it is a very hard dynamic to overcome because you just see so much resistance to it and I think linked in exposes a lot of fat resistance. How Has Lincoln responded as well? I know one of the big problems that black users were having was that their content was. Hidden but they weren't being notified and it just lead to a lot of questions that linked hasn't really satisfactorily answered at this point. One of the things that give people cause for concern are the fact that linked in is an absolutely not diverse company. Three and a half percent of their employees are black. One percent of their leadership is black and only one point two percent of their tech workforces black who has programming these algorithms, and what are these algorithms and what is the machine learning to flag as well as the actual content moderators. The important conversations I think that people are really learning from our conversations about racism in the workplace and these people have a lot of followers. So what I think black professionals do not want to happen is to miss the opportunity to actually gain allies and to make a significant change in the workplace. I mean obviously, it coincides with what is happening in the in the country and do it also reflects conversations that are happening in the workplace to? I think it's hard to say because much of the professional workforce is remote right now in a way lengthened is one of the only ways to have conversations with colleagues. You don't have the chance opportunities to talk with your colleagues after meetings or during lunch breaks. So this is really the voice of professional life for a lot of people especially when it comes to talking about these topics, one thing I think is important to know is. That I think that these conversations are not ones that are easily had in the workplace just because of the dynamic of working with teams working face to face and maintaining a professional environment but I feel a sense of almost relief for a lot of black employees people of color other people have marginalized groups to be able to talk about these things and have their colleagues see these conversations that probably wouldn't take place in the physical office. I mean that's what I think is interesting is you're not writing about conversations in in some ways it's about. People Lincoln talking about workplaces and how they should be more. But what you say is that people are being, what did you say quote blackened black black. Lincoln Yeah that that what you're really seeing is is people being their true selves bringing their true selves to Lincoln in a way that didn't exist before and is. Making some white people uncomfortable, right Yeah. I have one of the questions that guided me as I was thinking about the article and doing interviews in writing it was. Thinking about black twitter and the impact that black twitter has had on our culture just in terms of simply the language the memes will also the Hash Tags Black Lives Matter Oscarssowhite, amend the conversations that come of those Hashtags, Meredith, Clark who I spoke to from my article. She's probably the leading scholar. On black twitter, she's writing a book about it She's a professor at the University of Virginia and she also talks about how black twitter really demands accountability. So in thinking about that impact, the black twitter has had on our culture American culture specifically I started to think about what if that same model was applied to black link thin and how it might affect just the presence of black people in offices across
Make the vision a reality.
"Welcome back Brown Girls Ashanti here. The founder of the broncos Guy to politics, the Stop Shop podcast for women of color who want to hear and talk about the world of politics. As we continue with our collaboration with she, the people we're highlighting women from their twenty color to watch twenty twenty less. These are all barrier-breaking women Kerr changing the political landscape this year and beyond. ME, insight thought and Jennifer APPs Addison Jennifer at Edison is the president and CO executive, director of the Center for Popular Democracy, which works with affiliates partner organizations across the country to build a more inclusive equitable society and political institutions that worked for everyone. Jen. How are you doing today, i. Doing as well as anybody can be expected I'm surrounded by family I have been able to be in close contact with you know parents in loved ones, and of course I know protected with the benefits of a good union workplace so I, you know all things considered I. I'm feeling very blessed. We love to hear that in before we start the interview we were chatting in. We're talking about being on the road so much doing this work. What inspired you to get involved in community? Organizing I? Mean I think my mother was just born this way you know I grew up a black woman in the state and city that has been named the worst place in America to be Black Milwaukee, Wisconsin and I know most people don't think of black folks when they think of Wisconsin, they think of like beer cheese in the packers, but you know there have been generations of deeply entrenched. Racial segregation in in problems that have. Led to this dichotomy of Wisconsin, being one of the best places in America if you are a white child in the worst, if you are black and so I think I recognized that from an early age felt really passionate about it in a high school student I became really politicized around the around school funding around the idea that you know. Schools in the suburbs were getting twice as much per pupil. Than you know the school that I was going to in the city of Milwaukee. You know the reality is. Is that every single thing that we hold to be sort of like a part of the American dream was. Fought for and won by people organizing their communities in taking collective action in so You know I feel very blessed to be able to spend my life. Really working with folks to help as many people as possible in this country, find their voice empower. That is that is very powerful. What you just said. and. You mentioned being from Milwaukee. Were in the middle of the virus, and we're seeing it as a city where the majority of the black population there is infected with the virus in that has also just spur conversations to about how so many people still had to go to work, and how are essential workers a lot of them? Grocery workers aren't getting a fair wage in Eve. Let so many different campaigns including fight for fifteen. So how are you connecting at the moment all the work that you've been doing with fight for fifteen for people to have a fifteen dollar an hour wage in what you're seeing with essential workers who are putting their. In their lives on the line right now to make sure that we are able to get the benefits that we need and say stay in our homes. I mean first of all. What we saw just as pass Tuesday in Wisconsin was a travesty, a failure of democracy There's no way around it. You have a city. The largest city in the state. Multiple, times, the population of any other city. That is used to having over one hundred fifty polling places that on Tuesday, in the midst of a crisis in which we are not supposed to gather in large crowds, crowds over ten had five polling locations open for a critical election had A. Tens of thousands of people who had requested absentee ballots who had not received them as of Election Day, and the you know the impact on on my community on my people is is not an accident, right? It is the product a decade's worth of policy passed by elected officials who are incredibly hostile towards the city of Milwaukee on the city's behalf towards sort of neo liberal You know business oriented. Democrats who have allowed the city's most vulnerable populations to suffer in struggle and become the scapegoats of the, and so you know I'm really grateful for groups like black leader, organizing communities in the Laki and leaders igniting transformation who are organizing You know black folks. Brown folks in in the city to really demand the future they deserve in at the end of the day. All of these campaigns, the fight for fifteen, the fight for paid sick days. Many people don't know that. In Milwaukee we passed a referendum with more than two thirds of the voter support to require any business in the city of Milwaukee to provide paid sick leave earned sick leave to their workers, and that a law that was passed by voters was overturned by preemption at the state level. At the at the request of the crack mayor when we talk about the now eighty seven percent of the people who have died of Covid nineteen in Wisconsin are black. We have to understand that this is a consequence of lack of. Political Power and UVA intentional suppression of in particular Black Communities in the state of Wisconsin, and so it's important that we're having this conversation in the context of she, the people of you know a movement of a women of color who are demanding more than just to see at the table, but who are demanding real power. That, we can use to transform the lives of our people. That's what women of Color braying and I. Think you know it's if we look at what's happening in Wisconsin through the Lens of women of Color, we begin to understand the multiple layers enrich raises on in sexism and capitalism are creating. This you know are exploding the impact of this crisis in places like Milwaukee, Detroit and New York. City another's
"Today's warrior was known as the mother of all Jamaicans. She led the maroons a community of formerly enslaved Africans in Jamaica to victory against their British occupiers. Let's talk about clean.

Let's let's talk about Queen. Pokou Poku was born around seventeen hundred likely in what's now Ghana to a noble family of the Ashanti People.

Listen carefully, and you can almost hear Americans all over the country, binge watching the latest releases from Amazon and Netflix. These two tech giants are now turning their attention to India the country's market for online video. There is expected to reach over two billion dollars in the next five years. But so far neither company has had a whole lot of luck. So Cardiff Garcia and Sally Herships from our planet money team identify some possible steps to success. So I was watching this movie recently on Amazon, it's a comedy guy gets engaged. His best friend doesn't like the girl tries to break up the wedding. There is this whole complicated plot. But that is all besides the point. What was really surprising with all the twerk gang, which I told Ashanti OMB car about she's a journalist for the BBC. See I don't know if you have to working in the UK or all at the same thing. We do Ashanti covers Indian, film and culture. That's what you were watching an Indian film. And there are all these stereotypes about these films like that they're really conservative. So I get it. Sally. You felt prayed to a stereotype it's true shameful. But chew. And when I told shanty I was surprised by all the drinking and talking about sex in the movie, she totally schooled me Indian cinema has not been the way you've just described in many, many, many years don't feel bad Amazon, and Netflix also need to get up to speed on Indian film because they're up against a serious competitor. India already has a major online content provider called hot star and hot star says it has about one hundred and fifty million monthly users, according to counterpoint research Amazon has eleven net. Flicks a paltry five which brings us to our strategies for streaming success in India number one understand the market because if you think India is all. Hollywood think again, India is not just Bollywood Bollywood movies are mostly in Hindi. But according to India's last census a hundred and Twenty-one languages are spoken in the country. So plenty of Indian films are made in other languages. You know, what when you go to India you go to village cinema. I remember in two thousand and five I was in a village at I went Paul the cinema that was showing Harry pulsa, but it was showing it with cobbled up. So how are we supposed to speaking in step two programming for culture, most of the content Amazon Netflix producing the US plays. Well, all over the country. You can show Portland in New York and Seinfeld in Portland, but India is packed with different cultures and viewers want content relevant to them, which is why Amazon, and Netflix are using strategies three focusing on a niche in this case, India's wealthy high earners people who can afford in other words in Amazon prime subscription, which is almost the same price as hot star just over. One US dollar a month or net flicks around seven dollars a month and both Amazon and Netflix say they're having some luck both are offering content in multiple languages, and Netflix has a hit secret games a Cup thriller. But if either wants to crack the Indian market, there is one more thing, they'll likely need hot star has this thing. Amazon and Netflix do not the advantage that helps the have cricket because Indians Loveday cricket hot star has the licensed to show the IP L. That's the Indian Premier League like the NFL cricket and one last challenge. Ashanti mentioned Indians love sharing their Loggins. But we don't have that problem here.
