What Next Year's Redrawing Of Voting Districts May Look Like

"Year year is is a a once once in in a decade opportunity for all 50 states to redraw the lines of state and congressional voting District's In most places. State lawmakers are in charge of drawing those maps. So both parties poured money into state legislative races this year, and the result was a major disappointment to Democrats. Republicans won in almost all the states that will be key to redistricting. We've got three reporters with us to talk about what these fights will look like in different parts of the country. Ashley Lopez from member Station Kut in Austin, Texas, Dirk Vander Hart from Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland and Steve Harrison of member station W F A in Charlotte, North Carolina. Good to have you all here? Hey, Ari. Hi, sorry. Actually, let's start with you in Texas. The state's getting more diverse, and it's one of many places where Democrats had hoped to take over the house and didn't what happened there. Yes, so those hopes were totally dashed. Democrats are hoping to gain a majority in the Texas house. You know, at least one chamber so they could have a seat at the table this time around because they've been completely shut out for decades, but much like every other state that Democrats were hoping to flip a chamber in they were unsuccessful. In Texas, they had their sights set on flipping nine seats. That were quite frankly, just out of reach for them, largely because those districts were drawn to favor Republicans by Republicans 10 years ago. So in case you wondered if, like redistricting was important. This is a good example. Why So Republican lawmakers are again completely in charge of the process, You know, from top to bottom and because of the U. S Supreme Court decision recently that said that states can gerrymander for partisan Basie's than they really don't have any reason to hold back. That makes it sound like Democrats in Texas have no tools at all. Is there any kind of check or balance on Republican power in the state? Yeah, well, like the last time the courts are really the only check they have right so Even though partisan gerrymandering his legal, which is drawing districts that favor of party over the other, drawing maps that discriminate against people of color is definitely not. That's illegal. And because race and partisanship sometimes go hand in hand, it might be kind of impossible for Republicans. Jerry Mander, based on partisanship without running afoul of racial discrimination laws. So and in fact, Stephanie Swanson with the League of Women voters of Texas, she said that this is actually been a persistent issue in Texas. So in the past 50 years, Texas has been found to have racially discriminated or violated the Voting Rights Act and every redistricting cycle. They could very much still do the same thing on Toe. Stop it. Yes! Oh, Texas has like a pretty bad track record with this and because of so much of Texas is growth in the past few years and decades has been overwhelmingly because of growth among communities of color groups say they're looking to make sure that those political lines draw like retain that political power and population growth that has accumulated over the past few years. All right, let's turn from Texas to Oregon because Republicans next year are going to have total control of 20 state. Legislatures, with Matt making power and Democrats are only going to have total control of seven, but Oregon is one of those seven. So Dirk Vander Hart, What does that mean for redistricting in your state? Well, that's right. Democrats here have super majorities in the House and Senate along with the governor's office, and as of January, they're going to hold the secretary of state's office as well. That's really notable here because in Oregon if the Legislature and governor can't agree on how to reach our legislative maps, the secretary of state takes over the process, and actually, in the past half century, the Legislature has failed to pass. They planned much of the time. So that is one reason Republicans were really adamant about hanging on to the secretary of state's office. In this year's election, there would have been at least some path for them to have meaningful influence in redistricting. Instead, though, a progressive Democrat named Show me a Fagan won the seat. So does that mean Republicans are totally frozen out in Oregon? As the Democrats are in Texas? You know for 2021 that absolutely looks like the case Earlier this year, there was an effort to try to establish a nonpartisan redistricting commission that would take control of the process from lawmakers. That's something Republicans were pretty supportive of, but it failed to even get enough signatures to make the ballot. So show me a fake in the new secretary of State has said she would appoint an independent commission to help advise her. We have not seen a lot of what that looks like. All right, let's head east to North Carolina, which has been the site of many high profile gerrymandering cases over the last few years. What things look like now in Charlotte, Steve Harrison. Yes. So I think it's safe to say North Carolina has been one of those bitterly contested states over political Jerry Mannering after Republicans took control here in 2010. It was a North Carolina case. It was heard by the Supreme Court in the summer of 2019, in which the justices said that Jerry Mandarin based on political party was not unconstitutional. And that was a decision that Democrats across the country said was bad for democracy. In North Carolina. There was also litigation and state court that was successful enforced Republicans to redraw legislative and congressional maps before the 2020 election. And with these new maps, Democrats were really hopeful they could win at least one chamber and have a say and drawing the new maps next year. But they had to win in rural and suburban areas. And like what happened in Texas and other places those hopes really fizzled out. The GOP kept control of both the House and Senate. And so what does that mean for redrawing the maps next year? Has the GOP indicated what they plan to do so they aren't giving any clues, But first they're doing a little bit of gloating. They're saying, Look, we want in 2010 on maps the Democrats drew and we want in 2020 on maps that Democrats said you were pretty fair, so they're taking a victory lap. The question is, are they going to take a hard line approach next year and draw the maps themselves and lock Democrats out? Democrats here are pretty worried. Here's Natasha Marcus, a state senator from Mecklenburg County, home to Charlotte. What I do think is that Republicans who run the General Assembly are smart, and they're gonna certainly Take steps to make things look transparent and one more thing. There's an assumption here that Democrats are going to benefit from new maps just because so much of the population growth is in cities like rally in Charlotte, which you're very blue. But the state's top Republican Senate leader, Phil Berger, is saying not so fast. He's making this kind of interesting argument that Republican voters in these cities are disenfranchised because the GOP doesn't have any representation there. So he's saying, Look, we have 30% of the vote and no members in the Legislature. So he's saying, Hey, maybe we should draw a safe Republican seat in Charlotte. So take a step back. These votes in November have implications for political power in the U. S over the next decade. What is this likely to mean? So, Yeah, one thing going forward in North Carolina, there was hope to have an independent commission to draw maps. That's what Democrats wanted. That's not gonna happen, and I think that's been a push in a lot of places around the country, and Republicans just aren't interested in doing that. So one thing I think you can have the possibility to continue nationwide is a situation where one party may get more votes for their state House chamber or state Senate chamber. But still have fewer seats overall. That is Steve Harrison of member station W F A E in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with Ashley Lopez of member station, Kut in Austin, Texas. And Dirk Vander Hart of Oregon. Public Broadcasting in Portland. Thank you all.

The mystery Of Paul Amadeus Dienach

"Story begins in nineteen seventeen in switzerland. Paul is a swiss teacher and academic enthusiast in his twenties he pursued humanitarian studies cultural history and something called classical philology which is basically the study of ancient greek and latin written language. But now paul's thirty one years old and he teaches mostly history and as far as we know he's fairly healthy but then one day out of nowhere hall just falls asleep presumably. It's in the middle of a normal everyday activity because his family and friends tried to rouse him. But paul doesn't wake up this freaks everyone out so they take him to the hospital. The doctors say paul has slipped into a coma but they can't find anything physically wrong with him and paul stays like this for fifteen days until finally he wakes up. It's snowing outside and the second. Paul opens his eyes. His mother falls onto the floor. She is sobbing with relief. Halls a little disoriented when he wakes up but that he seems buying doctors still can't figure out what caused the two week coma but after a few months. Paul seems to be back to normal. Everyone hopes it just a weird one time incident but four years later in may of nineteen twenty one. It happens again. Paul falls asleep and once more. His friends and family can't wait kim. Only this time it lasts longer than a few weeks. A month passes and still nothing at this point. Things are looking even more dire than before. The doctors have to put paul on a feeding tube to keep them alive. Meanwhile his aging mother and his other friends and family continue to visit him. All they can do is pray paul spontaneously wake up but another month goes by and people start to give up hope. His mother even dies during this time. Presumably of natural causes still. It's got to be just the worst way to go knowing that your son is in a mysterious coma even if he does wake. You didn't even get to say goodbye. Finally paul does wake up in may of nineteen twenty two one year after he fell asleep. He opens his eyes. Paul's completely awake and aside from his muscles not being used in a while. He's fully functioning but again doctors have no idea what was wrong with him or if it will happen again. Worst of all someone has to tell him about his mother's passing which breaks his heart. And maybe it's this grief that's weighing on paul. Because from the moment he wakes up. He's acting cagey as he won't say anything about what he experienced during the coma. Which makes sense if there was nothing to talk about but from the way polls refusing to answer his questions. It seems like maybe something did happen while he was unconscious. And that whatever it is he literally doesn't want anyone to know and paul. Strange behaviour doesn't end there because as the months go by he basically becomes a recluse he wants see or talk to any friends or family but from what they can tell. Paul seems to be preoccupied with getting his affairs. In order he cleans out his deceased. Mother's house takes care of his inheritance issues and sell some land other than that. He keeps himself so busy with manual labor. It's as if he's purposefully preoccupying himself and he prefers to spend his evenings alone reading philosophy books and to be fair. Paul is a teacher and he was probably a big reader before but he more invested than ever in his studies specifically anything having to do with philosophy and he's spending a lot of time talking to his priest which is a pretty new development.

"It is so good to see you. Dr garage also known as fan i of from your students that you're quite engaging in hilarious in class a warrior. That's the funniest thing i've ever heard. Actually because i've never heard that hilarious part so there are times where i say he stuff in students know if they should laugh or shouldn't laugh. They wanna laugh but they're not quite sure what to do. And so those moments just the only way and only thing you can do is consume the silence and move onto the next stop assumes. Let's start with your background. Of course you have such an interesting rich history. So please enlighten us. Tell us all about that. So i am the first person nearly hundred and fifty years along the male line in my family who is not ordained christian minister so my father came to the us in nineteen eighty to pursue a phd in theology. And so that was the first moment we came to the us. Kids and i came at age six to boston and in cambridge nineteen eighty celtics. Imagine that era had just started with. Larry bird kevin mchale in addition of my hero robert parish like that was. The team was covered in green than when my dad finished his. Phd is goal was always to go back and work in the colleges in india so we went back but the three years in cambridge set me so far back academically so when i went back i was starting fourth grader. In india there was a basketball court at the college that my dad taught at and nobody played bass while there except for one time during the year when there were intramurals and only faculty played and as a faculty child. People were not letting me play. So when i went back to. India might love of sports. Ashley had a very different type of class and caste aesthetic to it. So most of the kids i started to play with. Were the children of the staff on campus. Folks doing everything from administrative labor to really tough menial ends on labor like cleaning gutters cutting down trees sweeping so their kids became some of my closest best friends and because of that the ways in which sport in india at that point in the late eighties and nineties had a certain castes. Consciousness other than if you played cricket. I grew up playing comedy. Which is you know. South asian game a mix between wrestling and tackle football but really took to playing cricket field hockey and soccer. And when i got a little bit older it became volleyball and everywhere. I went especially in christian communities. There was so much love for sport. And so i might not see it in places at my school. Maybe you know when i was hang out with my hindu-muslim or sick fronts but in the christian community especially on our colleges. There was a strong focus on sport ideas of muscular christianity. That played out in. The west was also playing out in india as well

What is psychological strength?

"Everyone welcome back to the building. Psychological strength podcast. My name is april. And i'm your host. I am so excited that you tuned in this week. I'm absolutely freaking out am completely giddy. Because this week is episode number drummer. All two hundred. I'm so excited before we jump into what the content of the actual episode is. I want just give a little shoutout and a little. Psa to anybody who is thinking about starting a new project and feels apprehensive about your ability level. You may be. Don't feel comfortable. Maybe you feel like you're comparing yourself to other people who are further down the road than you I'm just gonna tell you start. Let's go all the way back and you can actually do this. You can go on your podcast app. All the way back to episode one to three. They are still out there all the way back then. This podcast had a different title. It was called women inspired. This podcast had a different focus. That was actually very unfocused. Which is something. That i did wrong right so didn't even really think about my title wrong. was not focused on a particular topic wrong might cover art. I spent about fourteen seconds designing it. I think in powerpoint wrong wrong wrong. Wrong wrong I didn't really research how. I should set myself up on itunes or anything like that about how to make the podcast successful wrong and i had terrible audio quality. I edited myself all of these things. I did all of them wrong. And yet here we are at two hundred episodes with a growing thriving audience. It happened because i made every mistake and just committed to trying to figure them out so for you if there is a project that you wanna take on whether it's gonna create a website or a blog and you don't know how to start if it is. You wanna learn how to watercolor paint or snowboard this year or whatever it happens to be get out there get started and go suck for a little bit. It's gonna be fine It's so exciting to see where we've ended up the focus that we have in a topic area that i am so incredibly in love with and so passionate about and frankly a topic area that can help one hundred percent of people who stumble across this podcast. And that's why you know. We call the podcast building psychological strength. Because we want to teach you how to use some really rigorous tools and techniques to help yourself thrive and live better and for this exciting celebratory. Two hundred episode of the podcast. We wanted to dive in a bit to what we mean by psychological strength. Because i'll be super honest. We made it up. It's not a thing it's not an actual thing. We made it up and the reason why we made it. Up is because so much of the field of psychology is very academic focused. It's very behind the closed doors of a therapist's office it is i've tower academia and all of those things are very important and they play a role but they are not mechanisms for getting information out to a wide audience. So what we wanted to do with this. Podcast is talk about some of this really cool rigorous stuff in a way. That's a bit more approachable. And we came up with the term psychological strength because it really encompasses all of the facets that we think about and this is you know even in the ivory tower even in academia in therapeutic settings all of the facets that we think about that go into a person's mental wellbeing and the two hundredth episode. We want to dive into that. So ashley's here with me. We're having strength today and what it is and what it means and why you should care am so excited in before we do april. Just congratulations two. Hundred episodes is a big deal and i remember the beginning. I remember when you first. But do you know what i remember. It was seeing it and then having the thought. Oh my gosh. I really wanna be a guest. That would be so amazing. And then they were in the early day you ask at. It was like one of the coolest experiences i've done. Because i just felt so awesome and then here we are and i love getting to be a side kick and regular guest on with you and to senior podcast grow and evolve and become really laser focused in see this audience grow to and we have such a cool community around peak. Mind in in this concept of psychological strength. So let's get busy. Let's dive in. I love it so we do all this setup right because we talk about psych strength as though. It's a thing that everybody should understand and realistically you probably have a pretty good idea as to what it is. It's exactly what it sounds like. But there may be more detail and more facets to it and what you might not or than what you might realize so we want to go through in particular four different facets of psych strength to help you understand how important of a we'll call it skill this is in your life and how impactful it can be in so many different ways so we'll dive into these four along the way we'll talk about why they matter and give some really concrete examples so right out of the gate. We'll go with the most obvious one aflaid do that kind of on a soapbox for jag. Okay so ask a mental health professional and one the soap-boxes determine mental health I do it. I said right vad. Okay but here. Here's here's the reason why. It's a very real thing and are dedicated. Almost twenty years to improving mental health. But the issue. The reason why. I don't like it is because then we talk about mental health and physical health like they are separate things in really think that the data show the research shows your lived. Experience shows that we need to be looking at health and wellbeing as just this holistic kind of thing and i don't mean holistic like woo crystals in in whatnot. I mean whole person. Every facet of it but part of the reason why i really gravitate toward the term psychological strength is because it does draw those parallels to physical health. That people are used to thinking about. We're used to thinking about our health. And taking steps like exercising and different kinds of exercises in different goals of like cardio versus stretching versus weight trading in we talk about eating habits and sleep and all of these things to help us feel better and to really to do better in our bodies we need to in the exact same thing with our brains

Sahel of a mess: France's impossible peacekeeping mission

"Jihadists are entrenching themselves. Ever further in the suhel continent wide strip of semi arid land just south of the sahara desert. There are former islamic state fighters ousted from the middle east al qaeda associates and a number of ethnic militias. The sahel's hitter ends are far from any city state. Laws don't hold. Public services barely exist last year. Nearly five thousand people died in battles or acts of terror in the region six fold increase on two thousand sixteen. An estimated four million people have fled their homes this week. Sixty world leaders are among those who have gathered online for the paris. Peace forum where the crisis is being discussed. A united nations peacekeeping force has a rim to patrol and to help rebuild the embattled region but most combat missions against the jihadists are led by several thousand french troops. Some of whom are based this gow in mali. Well we arrived in gow by plane then took a french military helicopter which flew at low altitude extremely fast for about an hour to get to this advance base that they've built out there in the middle of the sahel sophie. Better 'cause our paris bureau chief. An extraordinary region absolutely vast nothing in any direction will miss no human habitation. A few acacia trees the occasional goatherd and a tiny settlement. But that's about it and then you arrive in the middle of this dusty zone read colored sand where the soldiers who've made it. All the way from france had just finished a month. Long operation against jihadist. So these were both regular french soldiers but also special forces the most recent of these operations. They killed several dozen jihadists. They seize weapons motorbikes fuel and to one of them just described it. Talk to me that it was intense. There were violent encounters on the ground. This is real proper combat that the french soldiers are engaged in there. And how significant is the french presence in the region. Well the french have over five thousand troops as part of this operation that they called it by far the biggest contributor to any of the operations in the region there is a un peacekeeping operation with over thirteen thousand soldiers but no single country contribute as many as the french do. There are two hundred and fifty british for example due to arrive. Soon there are three hundred and fifty germans there but in effect. What's is obvious. Once you're there is how the real combat operations fall to the french conditions. A tough is extremely hard. The sand everywhere is grueling. And it's risky. How risky last year was the region's deadliest for years. There was a particularly nasty incident at the end of the year when the french lost. Thirteen elite soldiers in a helicopter crash but local soldiers from nizhny. Molly have also been on the receiving end of terrorist attacks. Neo lost seventy one soldiers in one attack than there was another took out fifty from marley. So it's a constant vigilance. And there's a constant sense of vulnerability even for the armed forces operating out there. But why is it that francis chosen to take the lead to to be the country with the greatest presence on the ground. Franz historically has links to the region it is the former colonial power which also causes something a problem now because it gets accused of acting in a sort of neo clooney away and fronts also has permanent military bases out there so it becomes a sort of natural partner for crisis in the past. I think that the french have really tried to change their strategy. This year. emmanuel macron host to summit at the beginning of the year with the leaders of the five signs countries and the idea is to trained share some of the burden to make sure that the french show more supported on the ground by the european countries for example they i saw estonians their swedish officer but also to try and get the regional armies to do a better job themselves and that was very clear in the description that i heard of the operations where they were working really very closely alongside marlon and nigerian forces in some of these operations against the jihadists issue in june macron emphasizes commitment to the operation solo vehicle always mma which party about the the fight against terrorism. But it's also about the return of governance and development for the region in which he wanted to work with local governments that are much closer basis and is that big french presence making any real difference to the levels of jihadist violence in this. Hell when i think it's important to think of it in terms of different regions and where we were so that was in the sort of central new central mari. I spoke to general marquan rate. Who commands the oppression. Can't overall the some offered to trish. She tested in terms of often. You said he was very satisfied with recent operations there. I think the french sense that they've really dealt a blow to what they call a die ashley. Islam state in the greater hara premium capacity results. Iovine underneath the media and the general said they haven't disappeared is but they don't have the same capacity to cause trouble that they did at the end of last year. So i think there is progress in that particular zone where they've been conducting these intense operations. Of course. the problem remains that can operate in one area but they certainly can't operate all over the country and that's where she doesn't remains a big problem and so what prospects for for actually paring back their prisons. I think is incredibly difficult. You know. I think the the french Condemned in a sense to stay in the sahel. The no plans to leave or to withdraw all their forces tool. I mean it's more question of trying to share the burden more the adversity. they're up against these jihadist groups. They are incredibly mobile than a magic they move about on motorbikes and pickup trucks and they can just disappear into the bush in a way. That's for the french forces. It's just makes it very difficult to contain and to target and so it sounds as if the the only option than it is to draw in international help. I mean how. How hard will that be the reds Help on the grounds. The american particular provide ups a crucial intelligence support to the operation. The british operates three shoot. Kelly copters there as well as part of buchan and they if french beccles and troops into combat zones on special forces which is obviously much more declined to start operations but the estonians are there and there are some checks and swedish special forces due to arrive soon so european countries are helping franz. But they aren't at the same time. Exactly lining up to offer these combat troops. And i think franz sometimes feels that. It's doing this job very much alone but the situation you describe is probably not going to be massively changed by a few dozen or a few hundred special forces. Even it's an incredibly difficult situation. The best the fringe show hoping to do is to try and contain the threat to try and secure areas and enable millions to go back to their homes into a more sense of security in some parts of the country. But it's not about defeating the enemy across the entire country. I think that much is clear.

How To Talk To Your Kids About The Election

"Feel like you've been riding an emotional rollercoaster this election season. Well, guess what the kids in your life have noticed. But this anxious moment in history also presents a learning opportunity. Anya Kamenetz and Corey Turner cover education and parenting for NPR, and they have these tips for talking to kids about the election. In pre coded times. Hassan Cua May, Jeffries remembers taking his daughters to vote in 2016. We were right. There was me and all three of them the youngest one. I had her in my carrier, and I have my other two right there that we don't vote. Jeffries is a professor of history at Ohio State University, he says this year his middle daughter who's eight. Wanted to know was our voting plan. You know, Like what? So she's not fully clear, but she knows enough that there needs to be a plan. So step one in the election parenting playbook. Get active. Show your kids that you and by extension, they have a voice. Children are picking up on so much right now, And unfortunately, that also means in many cases they can see that we're on edge. So be honest. Tell them Adds a little nervous about the election. It's helpful for kids social and emotional development to hear you naming your feelings, yes, and to reduce that stress as much as possible. Try your hardest to turn off the TV or the radio, Put away your phone and connect with their kids Ask what they've been hearing and feeling and then listen carefully to what they share. It's so important for young people to be Engaged in conversations about meaning and purpose and different political viewpoints. Ashley Burner at Johns Hopkins University is an expert in civics education. She says. It could be tempting to stay in our bubbles and bash the people We disagree with. Politically. It's always been difficult, and it's even more difficult when we have media that helps create these separate holes in which we're all siloed in our own worldview with without touching others, Burner says. We actually need to strive for the opposite. Actively expose our Children to a range of opinions that can help our kids build skills like empathy and evaluating claims and evidence skills that are absolutely necessary for a functioning democracy. We know that civic formation is the prime reason why modern democracy started funding education in the first place was to raise able citizens. To be those able citizens. Kids also need to know about the world. Its history and geography or under, says research shows that students who spend more time with East social studies topics in school actually do better in other subjects, too, And this basic context will help them sort fact from everything else. Yeah, election season is full of learning opportunities. Just take a look at all the maps that are online. Or for slightly older kids. You can talk about the 18th century origins of the electoral College. You know, the thing about talking about history with our kids is that they're living through history right now.

Interview With Nina Turner

"You worked really closely with senator. Bernie Sanders on this last presidential run why do you think he lost? He was leading Close to the end and then everything stopped away. Why do you think he lost? Control of things there's never any one thing is you and I both know. When it comes to elections a certainly senator one Iowa is the popular vote people still. Debate that's going to throw that in there and we won. New Hampshire and we one Nevada in a fan five fashion in multicultural fashion, which was so exciting for this campaign, and then we get to South Carolina and beings change be part of it. Certainly was the the coalescence of the moderate wing of the Democratic Party. I mean I don't think it's any accident that. Mr Bujak got out of the race he was poll and really not just Poland his performance was us doing well, I think he was number two at that point in time and you got. Senator Senator Kosher got out of the race. So a lot of that coalescing of the moderate ruin going into South Carolina had an. Impact on our campaign? Yeah. I mean with Pete and amy, was there a third candidate they all who's third candidate and and don't forget I mean Congressman Clyburn you know put down in South Carolina he he was a really important. He's extremely important but with Pete and amy dropping out So close to Super Tuesday, it really changed the whole trajectory of the race. Are you supporting Biden. One of those I know that trump must go. So it is a binary choice at this point. anti-trump. That's. I mean I found myself just to be anti trump story because so many people are anti trump me that's really the Democratic Party's platform which I think is really the wrong way to go is it's it's you have to give people something to vote for two years. Later when fighting against neo-fascism no doubt. That point right there you have to give people something to vote for is sort of the core of the argument that I've been having with other Democrats throughout this whole process that a lot of people are saying we just want to get rid of trump and I'm like I'm Ashley with you but we also need to give voters something to vote for and in a moment when so many people are saying anybody but trump, why would you then go with a moderate? WHO's you know? Toward the middle of the scale when you could say, okay, let's then really change things in have a progressive who's truly going to have a revolution. Inquiry. Mayes wanted notes. Recount election I asked myself those questions a lot of course, many people reach out to me. They have the same questions especially because of the moment that we're in Kovic is exposed all the fisa jurors in our system it was already broken. A lot of people were already having a pan on regular basis. You know if you are black and poor if you're white and pork Brown and. Poor I mean if you just pour this pandemic, just revealed in a deeper way which you went through what you are going through every single day, and so you're right to combat somebody like Mr trump it takes his antithesis and I cannot even tell you how many folks since the primary have said to me. You know what s t you guys right because what Medicare for all having Fifty million in climate people who've lost their jobs and we know that healthcare for example is tied to one's employment. He got people who lost their jobs no fault of their own, a pet pandemic it they lost their job and Bingo. Now they lost their employer sponsored healthcare. So unless they're blessed enough to have a spouse or partner who has healthcare they. Right. So yeah it just doesn't make sense and push a moderate at this time when people need boldness the thing that bothers me about. What so much of this is I feel like it's a trade off in that a lot of people said Biden will get other people read. Suburban Republicans right. They will vote for bided and thus you sort of move the overton window over to the democratic. Party. Is kind of trying to make sure that Republicans are happy feeling comfortable to join the Democratic Party at least this one's. Rather than saying, we have these progressives don't take them for granted. Give them something. Right. But you know the Republican Party doesn't think about things that way they don't try to win Democratic voters but we're trying to win them over and and. In the success of a Biden. True. Democrats. The democratic wing of the democratic. Party. Loses out because even if he wins if his if his win is thanks to what the fringe of Republicans did in terms of coming across the over, then he doesn't need to pay attention to us and progressive issues he needs to pay into what they need. That's exactly right. The way you run is more like more than likely way you're going to govern. Though. It is a window into how the vice president. Will govern and it is going to take a movement of people to continue to push who knows a miracle could happen. But as it stands right now, based on what we know right now the policy positions he's taken you may remember he had an interview probably been about three months ago now, and he was asked by the interviewer if Medicare for all tasks and you both go, that would be a miracle epic, a necessary proportions, but it the past. Would you sign it? And he said he would not even in the face of a pandemic and so my suffering when it comes to lack of access to healthcare ninety, two, million people in this country are either uninsured or underinsured in that number continues to climb Toray so it doesn't make any sense and so the Republicans help you get over. Yeah. Those are the make book with for your entire term as president of. The United States of America meanwhile back at the ranch meanwhile back in rural America Urban America. Bourbon America with so many people are suffering because nope. Just because somebody lives in suburb doesn't mean not catching hale but the people who are catch inhale the poor the work important. Barely middle class what is where is the vision that provides pro vision for the people and because president trump is so bad. because. He is a clear and present danger. This is an excellent opportunity for the Democratic Party to go. Bold.

Behind Trump's Lies

"When you look at our neighbors compared to what's going on in Europe and other places but we're doing well choice between trump boom and biden lockdown. He wants to lock down the country dismantle your police departments, dissolve our borders borders, they want open borders I think every single low enforcement group in the countries endorses we gave you the biggest tax cut in history by far and Biden is proposing the biggest tax hike in history. So. All of that was wrong and Ashley on your part. You just did a deep dive on veterans choice and how the President again wrongly claims credit for that and insists on it and will continue to apparently how do we live in this era? How do you as a White House correspondent cover this president what do you have to hold it against? Well I I think this looking at those two stories mine in the Times The Times took the macro looking at all of them. This truth one rally I sort of buried in on the micro in what we describe as an anatomy of a singular live very briefly, this is the president signed an update to be choice known as the mission acts. The did expand Va Choice But va choice was passed and signed under Barack Obama was co sponsored. By John McCain and even the mission act that trump past was officially named after John. McCain but trump has gone in and basically said, he did the a choice Obama had nothing to do with it. John McCain didn't have anything to do with it. So one way we cover it was to really drill down and explain ventures that he was telling this falsehood this lie but the reasons why he's doing it because he is surrounded by aides to enable him. On willing and able to tell him the truth in one of the reasons he does it is because of the psychology of lives, which is the more they repeated the more they start to feel true in one striking thing I found was that the RNC, the Republican convention, a number of speakers were drafting their speeches. They told the speechwriters in the president's team they wanted to put a line about what? Donald Trump had done NBA choice because they actually believed what he was saying he'd gotten it. So the either the they believed this falsehood in Bay, wanted to repeat it themselves. So that's why the president doesn't because it is proof stunningly effective for him in the way we grapple with it is, is we write about it in tell this story in in many different ways graphically on with words in e

When there's nothing else to learn to agree. There is nothing. Okay who spends more money? Pause. Ashley with the wind Lauren degree. They don't spend much money, the only differences, she buys, beauty progress. I buy dove, I've talked about in the podcast beats dump soap. Yeah. My dove is to ninety nine her lavar is a little bit more expensive. The you'd actually be I mean, I think it's a little shocking to people that, that actually is not a big spender except on beauty products, which the very first time ever, met Ashley, it's still to this day. My first impression of her and I've gotten to know her so much better since then, but she rolls in with something she still has his as it's like chest full of mak- like it's a massive chest with lights, and it looks like it costs, two thousand dollars. It was to fifty. Oh, well, it's still expensive, a lot more expensive than dub Soave. So Ashley, you went with that one who is the better driver auto. Auto Jared wins on the driving. I have actually a couple of times scary experience. It's all right. I mean, from the moment that I, I was in a car that Jared drove, I was like, wow. This guy drives, like my dad. That's a good sign. And that was like a turn on for. It's kind of weird. My dad is a very safe driver, my mom's a better driver. I'll say that. My mom's a better driver. My dad caution Ashley's. Mom's in the audience tonight looking beautiful smiling. Super thank me here. So this is a question. I thinks that we're all very proud about overnight heart who is the biggest baby when they get sick. Oh, Ashley says Ashley, Jared says, Jerry, I will explain. Jared really hasn't been sick. Now me he really hasn't been sick Rummy. I haven't like how a bad cold or flu or anything like that, since we've lived together in the past year, but I have thrown up in front of him. You haven't been too much of a baby. The only reason I said, this is because one night I wasn't feeling well and you made me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and like liquid Ivy. I know it wasn't. But that's the only time I really remember living on who is better cooking into that yet. Do you guys not cook on? Just give me a second. Ben, let me think about this makes you look to cheating, the better cook sh. Jared says Jared Ashley says, both. Oh. Okay. That wasn't so bad.

And how can you not let yourself? That's my question, but she's real like you'll both have really stepped into that role and you'll both band girl about things, which is I know it, it's like we joke about it, but it's actually really if there was a love language for fan Girling, all would have it that is actually, one of the first things that drew me to cheer. It was that he like, obviously had this. He's like very pop cultural educated, which was attracted to him. But no one was able to like put out trivia. Get it.

"Him. And so we had our first kiss, and the next morning. I woke up and I was like, I got out of bed took a few steps down. And I was like. Would I get engaged at the end of this? What why have I even thinking that, like, I don't ever want to get married and it was just something in me really shifted? And from there just kind of the momentum belts. Well, did you know she was feeling that way? I didn't actually but I will say for me. In the fantasy suite is when you kind of get a little time to have no camera. And obviously, you want to try to gauge you want to kind of see where the person that you're dating that, that's when you knew. And well then I. Jive talking about it. I started talking about it because there an instance, during the fantasy suite date where I couldn't breathe because I thought she was breaking up with me. And but then it turned out to be that, that wasn't the case. It wasn't listening. I know my last relationship like what you're breaking up with me. He was struck by your beauty. I mean you do have utilized then that, but that wasn't the case. It was just because I'm not gonna lie. I was extremely nervous at the fantasy sweep. So, but then that night I was asking questions. And she was like, really starting to give me clarity that maybe she would accept the engagement, if it went down, and at that moment the next day. That's when I knew I was like art for sure, I'm going to do this and producers Damon bother me didn't try to talk to me at all day. Just I knew what I wanted, and I was I wanted to be committed to her. So that's the way it went down. I thought that honor first date. I guess that's when you knew you loved me. No. You said honor, I date, when we were dancing on the water, any looked in my eyes as I was dancing with my dice. And he said, I'm going to marry this girl. I mean that also too. That's when I knew that for sure I was head over heels in love with you was I've looked in your eyes. And I was like, that's definitely the girl I want to be with you. Let's don't need still need a little quick leaning into Ashley and Jerry, we were there when they came down and got ink and went Jared proposed. And that was actually a big moment for Kristen is relationship. I don't think we ever told you guys this do not. We did not go. So you guys came down, and your proposal happened and it, Chris, and I ended up being pulled and having to have this serious converse, is that the night we won the boom, boom. This is a PG podcast, boom. Boom room. I was different story. But the, the thing is our encourage you guys go to the boo boo yet that story made complete sense now. Seeing you walk on the beach juries, courage into Google room. There is definitely inspiration, welcome. No one. There was a lot of tension because I said, no to the boom, boom around four or five times. And then you guys came down, and I was like, you know what? Let's go, boom. Boom. So I would say that their relationship is like the definition has, I'm whenever seeing the adjustment bureau with Matt Damon, where it's like it's amazing and Mike. If you think about your path, it's kind of like the adjustment bear, whatever's all these different roadblocks, but somehow someway, you guys knew that you to we're supposed to be together just didn't happen at that time. And you guys finally became together, and now you are. So it was really inspiring to see and be there for that moment you for like the person that stood out to me the most because we were pretty much surrounded by, like seventy five percent people. We'd never met before and I don't think I met you and you were like glowing and you are so congratulatory, and it was so nice to see somebody genuinely seemed, happy, not like oh, what are they doing like barging in here like ruffling feathers a lie..

"She's just like so confidently literally ever since Jared. Kind of admitted her feelings, nothing makes her nervous, civilities a great word though. 'cause I always keep saying, like in my head. I'm like, switch more emotionally stable, so she doesn't cry anymore because being what you're kinda sucks. So boring. The question might like if I've more boring now. Like, that's one of my biggest securities, we did this. I don't get it podcast about like what we're most insecure about now. And I actually said that I feel like I could be boring to my audience because vibes so emotionally stable. It's not boring. Just good. People should be happy for working right? And that's nutrition jeered. Let's back check and then have some direct questions for you. But what happened leading up to that moment where you wanted to express your feelings? Ashley. Well, we did to forty five minutes video on him tones, you'll say it again. You guys just got a glimpse into our lives. Get asked the question and Ashley answer. Yeah. I mean obviously we talked about it before. But it was more like you said, I mean, I think for a long time. Nick can attest to this because he knows. We pretty well. I'm very. Looks thrill. House me. I man of comfort I like kinda like my little place in this world. And. Ashley's the complete opposite of that. And Ben like you were saying earlier. If Ashley and I were to ever date after our first season of paradise, it would have gone, one of two ways, either complete happiness or complete sadness. And I think that was always kind of terrifying, for me because I was always confused about my feelings, and so I never really was willing to dive in. And then, of course, we were best friends, and we would talk all the time. So life was good and nothing ever needed to be changed. And then all of a sudden something changed. And she started dating someone else, and I kind of look, you know, I was living in Rhode Island while I was actually living with Nick at the time. And but I was in Rhode Island when I was kind of finding everything about winter games. And I mean I heard rumors that she was engaged. And I was like, just, you know, obviously in my room in my own head trying to think of what I should do. How much of an idiot, I've been how I've haven't said anything in the past three years haven't done anything, I haven't said anything, you know, you just all of a sudden you blink, you know, you go on this craze. The adventure of the bachelor and bachelorette paradise, and you kind of just like roll with everything that happens from, and all of a sudden, you blink in three years of your life goes by, and you're like holy have I said anything that I've truly meant. And so, and then, you know, we were in Saint Lucia we had a preplanned trip with our friends Tanner, and Jade, and in palm Kate, and, and Lauren was there to nationally. And, and, and so I decided I had to go down there and say something, and then that was when everything changed. And now we sit here today getting prepped for the biggest day of your lies Ashley injured. This is all came full circle. Your couple just like the world intended to be, what are you most excited for, for this wedding day? What are you most excited about? I think I'm most excited. I'm most excited. Okay. Never mind while I was gonna say, I'm most excited about to be in one room with people that I care most about in this world. To celebrate the state's friends and family and to celebrate our love and just to have that moment with everybody together. I think that's one of the most excited about I'm the I am more excited about something specific. And I guess that's just like the doors open to the church and seeing Jared. And then being next my dad Jarrod, you think you'll cry on the wedding day. I don't know. That's a great question. I cried at my sister's wedding. So you're a goner, man when I never thought I'd cry. And then I saw my sister's wedding. They had a, a carriage. I was in I was in the and party and they had two million of us here for moment..

"I want to ask you, though, so to get serious for second. What have you seen about their love story kind of play out over last year? And I want to ask every person that comes up here because everybody knows them personally, what have you witnessed? And what have you seen that's inspired, you or also that you've learned from ear gonna make me cry in, I cry every time Lauren can't talk about their there? I know it's like so cliche, but their best friends, but they also push each other to be better and it's kind of, like they just lift each other up every day, rather than than, you know, tearing them down and they're just. Really cute together. There's, there's an story. I want to tell why you're up here. I wanna talk about. I was outside doing an interview and the and the reporter asked when was it that you recognize that this could be something again for Ashley injured? And I thought back, there's a I know this exact moment, so we are in Carmel, California. We had gotten off a winter games. Actually, you know what a lot of people don't know is I really met. Ashley from the podcast. We had known each other off and on before the podcast. But when we really started to get to know, each other personally was really our first time doing this. And for me, this podcast is super special because we had planned it for two months. I didn't know Ashley I was nervous about this. Whole new venture Amy our producer was just getting this thing started. It was an experiment, and it just so happened that the week that Lorne I broke up was the week that we recorded our first episode. Yeah, we dated for a little bit. And so we dive into this whole podcast world where it's meant to be intimate, and it's you're really meant to share content. That's voluble in real. And I was in the most real place in my life ever. And then I meet Ashley who is also in the most replace of her life because at that point, her injured really good friends, but there were friends and I kept asking, I've always loved Jared. We met on our season of the bachelorette, and I've always had a lot of respect for him as a man as a person as a couple works like why isn't it working? I would always ask I mess with Ashley to the point where I almost felt like I was offending her. Like why aren't you in Jared dating? She's like we're just friends and he would sleep on her couch and stuff. And it was weird. I never got it here. They always defended. Jared, when you would ask me those questions I don't bring it up because I know that he sat sensitive. It was it was weird. But here's what it was on. But here's what happened. And so I see Ashley in this season of life that all explain for distancing that she was questioning a lot. She didn't know where life was taking her. She's getting ready turned thirty. There are a lot of big obstacles and away, and she was super emotional, and emotional Ashley that we loved. But we also felt for often because her motions were real and true. And you'd sit there and you see her share these things about life in these big questions that she have in kind of breakdown, and as her friend, at that point, and somebody that had already kind of gone through rough season in my life with her, there, isn't a really good response. Other than sit in it. So then we decide to do winter games together, which was a wild deal. For me. I had not expect to go back on a show..

And this event is going to be nothing but special Ashley injured, I've a special gift for you. But before I give it to you, I want to ask the two of you. Why did you choose crate and barrel for your registry? What I love about grand barrel, is that I feel like it's dealt furniture. In the best way, I say that because Jared deny well he moved into an apartment with my sister. It was my sister in my apartment. And we were only there for like a month until we realized that it was probably the smartest decision to move in together. He didn't. You know, we would have been logistically really weird if we did live apart. Anyway, the bottom line here is that we have, like a really girly apartment, we had a decorator come in and like make all these crystal chandeliers and everything had, like shade of pink attached to it. So what we're really excited about is when we are married couple, too. Totally redecorate the place. Make it a little bit more masculine, but definitely timeless and classic and crate and barrel has everything for every room. And you know that it's going to be well made it's gonna last so long and it's just going, it's going to be quality classic timeless style for a lifetime. Jared, everything Ashley. No green barrels awesome. Then like every time you go in there. I just want to spend a lot a lot of money. So it's really nice to have cream barrel. Be our wedding registry. Because then other people can buy stuff that we really like that. Yeah. Best partly registering, he was, like I feel like this is just for free free stuff. It's shopping. It's free for us. I yes again, me it was just you went around and scanning it was like, yeah. Like those wine glasses click. I like those tiles, click the price tag on this, click, you know, my never thought I'd be so excited over something that came in the mail from actually podcast fans.

And you have a new project coming out that I think all of your fans will be really excited about hearing for all of you out. There who are lovers reality television. We Michaud the kind of started it all off the ill them back and obviously everyone's married excited for they. He'll be back myself included. And so today, we announced that Shefa needs crack, the sister of Spencer Pratt, and I are going to be doing a show. The hill called track castle. We're talking about the show bringing on people from the show breaking it all down and getting all the from Steph about what the heck is going on in southern California. And I can't be more freaking Trump for that. One. Does the hills start airing again? It's coming up in the spring. I don't know if there's like that fischel date. I know this spring his when they planted for the be back, but I wish it would just start. Now, they're filming it right now. So every time I sit down with Steph. She's got like some juicy bit of gossip from the show. And from what I understand if you guys like the hills before it's going to be bigger better and more ridiculous. All these people probably back same rent like she said, they just live in bigger houses. Now. So Stephanie Pratt. This is Sarah sponsor, and Heidi will all be on the show. We'll Lauren Conrad be on the show. I I don't think healthy is on. But don't worry because replacing those who aren't on the show. Do you? Remember, the show the scenes, yes, I'll Michel Barton's going to be on his and shake. We need Shah freakin. Barton is going to be on the show, which consist awesome. And also weird. Because like the hills was like spin off the reality version of the OC. And now, she's a part of the show so life imitates art being life, or whatever. That's good. They say, no. So meta so weird. So I'm sure there's gonna be a lot of tears shed. I mean, I'm not sure if it's going to be on the same level of actually I can Atty. But when we can we can only hope that the drama between Steph and Spencer, we'll continue on and all the other like just crazy happens on the hill. It's so unique in my is that the show is having one of their contestants actually on a podcast to talk about the behind the scenes, you're going to be able to dig deep into the psyche of every single person on this show because you have a co host who's been there. I think everyone loves about your guide to show because you get to give like the behind the scenes t on the bachelor, I even say like, well, they cut it weird. They're or like, I didn't really mean to be to be said right there all that kind of like interesting gossip from buying the season. I think we're going to get the exact interesting gossip, and like also there's gonna be storylines over gonna want more, you know, and she'll be able to found on it. I'm just going to be there kind of driving the ship and also like kind of pulling things out of death because it'd be honest with you. He's very easy to like get to admit to ping. I'm pretty sure we're gonna get in trouble with with like nondisclosure agreements because you might reveal things that she's not the post to. But I the feeling that everyone's really going to like like the show a good companion piece of the hill. Awesome, man. Well, hey, well, thanks for coming into the holiday extravaganza hosted by Ashley I- Canetti and myself. We look forward to listening to your latest project everywhere. You.
