What Changed Overnight in Arizona? Jake Hoffman Explains
"Jake Hoffman is with us. So Jake, I was illustrating the point that something changed overnight. What do you think that would be Jake? It feels as if somebody might have intentionally sabotaged there is no other explanation. What are your thoughts? Well, Charlie, there isn't an explanation. And look, I want to go back to something you said that it was, you know, some say the number 63% of machines weren't tabulating correctly or were malfunctioning. Some say it's 48%, some say it's 30%. Look, the simple truth is whether it's a third of machines affecting voters and disenfranchising voters or half of machines or two thirds of machines disenfranchising voters. It's an absolute assault, a vicious assault on our democracy from the very establishment rhinos from the very leftists that say their job is to protect democracy. The reality is that they're the ones executing an assault on democracy by seemingly seemingly allegedly purposefully disenfranchising voters. The voters that they don't like. Because they knew the numbers were going to be overwhelming. Exit polling showed upwards of 85% of de of voters were voting for America first candidates. Those were the very people that these same election officials had started a political action committee to oppose in their personal capacity. This seems like a direct assault on not only our democracy but on our republic and it can not be allowed to stand.

Or you know big tough jobs where the danger is real micro says. It wasn't. It was an article about everything from paper cuts to the non existent pet bereavement policies that are being deemed harsh.

Club Q Shooting Is About Guns Not Red Flag Laws Says Glenn Kirschner
"Not the happiest subject to start with, obviously, because clearly all the talk is about this latest tragedy. Predictable tragedy in Colorado, right? Talk to us a minute just about the red flag laws failing to, this guy apparently legally purchased this AR-15. Just talk to us about your initial thoughts on what's happened. Yeah, so red flag laws allow law enforcement authorities to temporarily seize weapons from somebody if they believe that person poses a demonstrable danger to others. What we are learning in the aftermath of the club Q shooting is that this gunman apparently had made bomb threats. He was charged with kidnapping and menacing. Now, what we have, what I have seen reported as those charges were dropped and apparently the record was sealed. So whether this was truly a failure of red flag laws or not, you know, we'll have to wait to hear more about that. But, you know, this is all about guns. It's not about mental health. It's not about frankly red flag laws. It's all about guns and the Republicans, as we know, will continue to worship at the altar of virtually unrestricted access to weapons of war, assault rifles, and they'll continue to let the blood money flow into their campaign coffers until we rise up and say we're not going to take it anymore.

Mark Morgan Describes the Human Tragedy of an Open Border
"Talk to us about what you've seen just briefly of the human tragedy, especially children and young girls, if you have an open border. This isn't just a one off. This is part of the system. Yeah. This is another reason why I say secretary is the most dangerous man in this country, because it's not just about Americans that are dying every single day because he's the chief architect of these open border policies. But here's something you will never hear from them. Remember what he says that he's developed a safe and orderly and humane illegal immigration process. First of all, it's an oxymoron and second of all, it's a lie. First of all, in the first 20 months under this administration, there have been over 1300 dead migrants that have been found by this administration, shattering any record of all time. And that's just CBP. That doesn't include the dead migrants that local law enforcement is found. It does include the dead migrants in Mexico along the Darien gap on the journey. That number could be in the thousands. You'll never hear from that. That is an include that up to 30% of young women and children are sexually assaulted and raped on the journeys up here. I've talked to border trial agents who said they interviewed a girls as long as 12 years old that were in multiple times in the journey. Our sheriff lamb that I know you know, talk to how their deputies found a backpack full of pills and they asked a 14 year old girl what that is. Morning after pills, my mom gave them to me because they knew I was going to be raped and you'll never hear from this administration. The number of illegal aliens that once you get the United States, they also are forced into a life of trafficking. That is exponentially expanded as well. None of this you'll hear from this administration.

Johnny Depp Loses Libel Case Over Sun 'Wife Beater' Claim
"You know it won't be fine, Johnny Depp, Jesus Christ, talk about a ruined reputation. Because if you haven't heard already it's official, a British court found him to be a wife beater. They ruled against him in his libel suit against the sun, high court judge mister justice Nicole. So proper. Laid out his decision in a 129 page ruling and he said that after he went over the 14 allegations of abuse, he believed that Johnny Depp did assault Amber Heard and that all her allegations against him messed with her career. The judge said the claimant, mister Depp has not succeeded in his action for liable, the defendants, the son and news group newspapers have shown that what they published in the meaning, which I have held the words to bear was substantially true, the judge also defended Amber Heard against Johnny calling her a dirty gold digger. Because this judge believes that no self respecting gold digger would donate a $7 million divorce settlement to charity, even though listeners to my show know that that $7 million actually came from Elon Musk. How she's paying him back, we can only imagine. But justice Nicole believes that Johnny showed his real feelings about amber in that horrible email where he wished she were dead.

Yeah, well, we really focus in on ending harassment and sexual assault, and our offices are strategic office at the central office in Washington, D.C..

And so that I was able to translate those feelings and beliefs into this job. And I'm lucky because I have a great team that I work with, have super supportive leadership. I mean, it wasn't my idea to stand up this office. I one day actually, when I came back from that White House leadership program, the boss said, hey, what do you want to do now that you're back? And I said, well, I want to work on something that's super important for this administration. And I want to make an impact. I want to do something that's important that's complex and I want to make an impact. And he says, I know what you can do. You know, he said, you know, I'm hearing from veterans that they're being harassed. I'm hearing from veterans service organizations that we need to do something about it. And I need your help. And it was just me. It was like one of me, you know?.

"Requesting to be relieved of his command. He complained that he did not have sufficient forces to go on the offensive and that his new england constitution was not doing well in the southern climate. It come down with a fever and was still suffering pain from the wounds that he had received at saratoga more than a year earlier. Despite his request general lincoln remained in command even with is diminished force the continental position at hurries berg kept the british bottled up. They could not send foraging parties or recruiting parties into the back country without the risk of being attacked and captured. If they sent out a force large enough to fight off a major attack they would be forced to leave the garrison at savannah so depleted that they could not defend themselves against an all out attack there. The inability to recruit met that the british did not have the manpower to launch the new offensive that they wanted to do the inability to forage meant that they were still reliant on food and supplies shipped to them from elsewhere. This frustrated plans in london where they hope british control. Georgia would be a net exporter of food by this time. Not requiring imports of food after an american privateer captured a supply ship bound for georgia. The garrison even had to go on short rations and was in danger of potentially starving so the standoff seemed to be favoring the americans at the same time lincoln once again called on the governors of north and south carolina to send reinforcements by late april. The continentals were in better shape. South carolina militia general andrew williamson had reoccupied against sta and had fought and dispersed a group of cherokee and creek warriors who were supporting the british more militia joined lincoln and prairies berg.

"Hello and thank you for joining the american revolution this week. Episode to twenty assault on charleston. We return now to the southern theater that we last left in episode two thirteen in that episode. I discussed the battle of briar creek. Which place in march of seventeen seventy nine. It was a british victory but failed to leave the british in control of the georgia back country. The continentals took control of augusta. And the british remain hemmed in around savannah after the capture of savannah in late. Seventeen seventy eight. Colonel archibald campbell received appointment as military governor of the colony even while general. Augustine provos took control of the military forces at savannah campbell. Then returned to london leaving his lieutenant governor and general previous brother. Colonel mark prevost as the acting governor of the colony of georgia campbell returned returned to britain a hero and received a promotion to major general. He also got married and soon received an appointment as governor of jamaica. Aback in georgia though they situation was becoming dire the british strategy and georgia had been to take the colony with a relatively small force of a few thousand regulars then use that as a foothold to build an army of loyalists from the georgia and carolina backcountry and to use that army to invade south carolina. British strategists also hoped that georgia would provide a source of food for armies fighting on the islands in the west indies by capturing only a small area around savannah. Those plans never really came to fruition. There were potential loyalists living in the back country. Who might be persuaded to join an army. But after the british abandoned augusta many of these men had no faith that the british army could hold on to territory or that they would not cut and run if the continentals gave them too much of a fight. These men knew the consequences of joining up with the british. If the british did not remain in control they would be branded. Traders have their property confiscated become exiles or even be executed as a result. The number of local volunteers was minimal. Most men in the area who had not joined with the patriots simply kept their heads down and try to remain out of the contest until they had more confidence on which side was going to win. Following the battle of pryor creek the british garrison of nearly four thousand soldiers remained in and around savannah with a couple of outposts within a day's march of the city. The americans had initially concentrated the bulk of their forces at curry's berg a small town on the south carolina side of the savannah river about twenty miles up river from british occupied savannah following brier creek the continentals and militia under general.

And that's the big rub in the military is that these are your peers. And why is so prevalent. This is megan.

We're going to be primarily focusing on women so obviously the deepest consequence of this issue exists in the damaged lives of survivors the pain that they have had to endure. But what are the other consequences. How does this problem hurt the military. Well let's start with this an all volunteer force. The american military cannot meet its requirements of women. Don't serve they make a fifteen sixteen percent of the military. You take that fifteen to sixteen percent out week. Do not have enough qualified men who are willing to serve to fill the Sex thing is just the cost. You know these women range from brand new trainees at basic training to colonels and even generals and admirals are sexually saw. They choose overwhelmingly to leave. That's a huge cost that we have in that. It costs so much to train. A pilot are trained. Infantry officer are medical personnel in to have them choose to leave or forced out because of this is a massive talent pool drain for the services more than one in four survivors of sexual assault harassment. Or discrimination have taken steps to leave the military. The talent drain creates serious consequences for military capabilities including tasks that only women can perform so the best example of women in a mission in combat. Doing something that men could not do does involve this most recent operation afghanistan. basically the idea was when counter-insurgency which is having troops go into villages into neighborhoods win hearts and minds. You know that was what we called it in order to integrate with those people and to learn about what they needed in the village getting women on board being able to talk to women about what they needed was crucial and in these very conservative muslim communities women are not allowed to talk to men who are not in their families so they could not talk to the male soldiers who were coming to the village to speak to the village elders and so special operations decided. Okay how about we train. You know teams of women who can go in and do that engagement. And that's what they've been doing all along a woman ashley white was. Her name actually died in combat in afghanistan in one of these teams and she was serving with army special forces so while women who serve just want to be seen as a servicemember like any other service member there are examples like that where being a woman made somebody more useful in a situation than the men who they were serving with so how to sexual assault impact units on the ground. So you can ask anybody in the military you know. What are the most important things for. Combat effectiveness and unit cohesion is chief among them which means everybody is watching out for each other. They're on the same page. They're willing to defend each other. Under any circumstances and along those lines there are also senior leaders in the military who were referred to sexual assault as fratricide which is basically killing your brother sister attacking your brother sister and that is you know. Ideally the way that senior leaders want issue to be looked at because when women in a unit do not feel safe. You have destroyed the credibility and the combat effectiveness of that unit. Because you are supposed to be watching out for each other and obviously if you're assaulting each other it's not watching out for each other to truly understand what's going on here. It's important to understand the long historical struggle for equality in the military and the way that women's service roles have changed over time when women were first formally able to serve in uniform dates back to world war two. There were a couple of voluntary organisations within the army and the navy and those were largely medical health care and otherwise you know secretarial administrative roles women started to be more involved in direct action. You know if you will more into the eighties in the nineties. When women were first allowed to serve on ships when women were allowed to pilot aircrafts and then things were very status quo for awhile in the early nineties. There was a ban on women in direct combat roles so that was no infantry no artillery no.

One at the box office is a rare woody allen movie that he did not direct played against him the front the front is number. One at the box is how blackhawks this world eared. It's especially weird because none of the movies. He directed were especially huge. Hits at this time like that's bigger than most of his films. Like the next three movies are what you would consider. You know big hits of the year or whatever and i was just like what is the front doing number one. It like it november. Like a pretty big deal time anyway. Zero mastel is great movies era. Michelle has like an incredible support. Seen the front i. It's martin ritt right. Sort of like a blacklist movie. It's you know it's an intelligent sober drama typing right. No it's gets bad comedy. I would say About a difficult subject. But but woody. Allen plays the guy who's serving as the front for zero misspell who's like the trombone esque. Screenwriter can no longer work.

Movies are saying too much. Just tell me what you are right yeah. Marathon man is half a good movie. It's one of those things you watch it you're right. This could do with a little tightening. This could do with a little more sexiness. Honestly it's it's a little too sober but it is pretty good. I don't know that would be as having fun. April care about marathon man. I think he's okay. I don't remember it much. Par for the dentist scene. It's got a good ending to them in that weird in like a dam or something right there anyway david. Do you know what time of day is best to watch.

Pryor and for three scenes in the advertise. The movie as richard pryor finally busting loose on the screen. And you're like he's in for ten minutes and there's some boring plot. I don't care about the rest of the time right him. Sitting me down being like we gotta watch car washes it rules and me being like. This is okay. Like i i.

"Think guys like romero and carpenter obviously understand the semiotics of what they're doing and when that gets one up and they're playing with the former audience expectations that kind of way. Not just sort of how many gallons of blood you can dump. That is exciting kind of chart. Although if we're talking about sam ramey i do think i will defend until the day. I die in every single movie. That he's made their core gallons of blood can be a great one upsmanship move if done correctly. Yes he smart. He knows what he's doing. It's not being done wantonly. Yeah it's like as a kid. When i was obsessed with movies now read about scary movies and i would. I usually i imagined worse then. What's in the movie right. Usually the movies actually have a lot more restraint when you actually watch halloween and sit down. You know you're like oh this is not the gore fest. I imagine when. I was ten years old and then you talked about right as a kid that you thought these movies were literally just ninety minutes of stabbing like there was no no dialogue mud for entire running time. But then there is the occasional like you see day of the dead or whatever. And you're like oh my god. I didn't actually you like sam raimi's probably a good example like i didn't actually know it was going to go this heart like there. There is the occasional reversal of that. Where it's actually worse than you imagine not usually but but this is kind of one mean. That's that's the fucking little girl shot moment. Is this movie like throwing down the gauntlet going. We're going harder than you expect like it's not gonna be glory but it's going to be more intense and more ruthless than you expect. Yes i mean. We're not talking a plot much here. But i mean the so far much threads you know unite at this precinct and then they have to fight everyone off. I mean this gang wants revenge for their members killed in the opening ambush They're gonna take it out on this precinct where this new cop is stock. Manning it for its final night of operation will. What's their lead there because the father of the daughter shoots one of the gang members and leads them sort of there so Which had his character. It's weird because i kind of understand that he is just fainted or as in some kind of state but it is weird the whole time that he's like not passed out but like what am blake emotionally. He is just like he so overwhelmed that he's just catatonic now more or less. Yes it's like just alright trauma. Yeah I guess the oh sorry go no. I was just going to say the moment of him reacting to his daughter getting killed i think is an example of lake carpenters steady hand with performance versus a lot of other directors. In this sean row. Where like you're kind of taken aback by the stillness of gets off the phone. He looks over. He sees this bizarre image in a wide shot. Ears a truck. There's a body next to what that other body is that my daughter and you sort of just hold on his face as like the recognition takes over versus a lot of movies like this. I think it's the second the gunshot goes off. The guy whips his head around and then falls to his knees and screams. No and this is that thing. We're at first. He's not even upset. He just looks confused. You know and then. It's like denial and getting slowly closer into it realizing real and then he's just sort of silently heaving on top of her body you know. He's not wailing guttural. It's not like yelling. At the gods it is just like he's his brain short-circuiting it feels like a more realistic representation of how someone would react to this than we're used to seeing not to as a father daughter here as a father daughter this seat freak me out a lot. Even though my daughter is baby not a child. Good advice david. Never let your daughter get ice cream. I won't of course not. I'll show her this movie. No matter she can have us not really psychologically healthy. She'll be really strong and good in normal that way at anytime she complains. I'll just show her assault on precinct. Thirteen that'll that'll be a good idea. Right and their kids will ask her like and ask her of course through a tin can radio or notes because she doesn't leave her home plus. What's your favorite movie. And she goes movie. I thought there was only one movie. It's assault on precinct. Thirteen and i've seen it eight hundred times right Yeah no it's it's a freaky seat. Obviously the shock of her her getting shot. But also what you're talking about just the the he doesn't let the aftermath. He doesn't cheap on that he he he lingers in it. It's cheaper though it's cheaper to shoot it's cheaper to shoot the actor doing all the work you. You don't have to move the camera. You don't have to do setups. You don't have to do anything else. Just like if you just keep that shot wide for a little bit longer and hold on this actor like no. You're good to go. It's it's his advice. It's like the key to low budget. Filmmaking i also think always leading be scenes or the shots or both. Play out a little bit longer than you're used to does. Create this odd sense of dread. You're watching everything going like anyone else would have cut fifteen seconds ago. I've seen enough movies. That i feel like this. Should we should be moving on. And we're not yes definitely. That's yeah any studio would have forced you to get coverage so.

Yeah yeah those the only two if he also did the first nudie musical. That's it those. The only movies he worked on as we mentioned weirdly has like a bunch of star trek voyager credits and stuff like that. He's a camera operator for most oklahoma's good for him make the paycheck asshole. Shit yeah but i mean like. I watched the shout factory. The you the nice blu ray that they have and it looks fantastic. You know obviously but you know so de-emphasizing it but this is a great. Look and movie. I i would try to see it in a theater. Print like does feel like that'd be fun but you know they're restoration is very nice. It's also movies where you feel like if you saw this at a rep theatre it would still get gasps at several moments. You know not watching it as like a curio or like this interesting time capsule of an early career. It's a movie that still feels very visceral. I mean you go from right that the opening sort of Ambush right to then. I think right after that is the weird blood seed the blood bulls so then when you get to the first scene with What's his name or main hero The good lieutenant austin stoker. Even bishop is the character. Yeah that's right and that's daylight. He's driving a car at that point. You're unnerved by that like you've gotten so used to the darkness in the silence and the irina of this movie. It's a see like a normal guy being like yeah. I think i'm a hero. You're like something's going to go horribly wrong here. It's sort of a slow build after that the apart from the ice cream scene sort of i i like it. It's the sort of contemporary of forty five minutes until deceision really kicks off. But that also is. I think i mean halloween's different because it's relentless right once it really gets going but i feel like a carpenter thing that you'll read like reviews of the time. Sometimes people stupidly are dismissive of him. Because of this where it's like. Well he got like a million dollars or one hundred thousand dollars to shoot the movie and he puts like twenty five percent of the budget into one sequence. The movie is seventy five percent. Build up to that one sequence. But i think he is kind of a master of the slow built. He doesn't make you feel like he's stalling or delaying. Everything feels cumulative you know. And at the point where that money does end up on screen and things break you get to a massive shootout whatever it is. It's such a release valve you know. He's he's built it.

"They did their own. You know effects on it but dean candies work on that kind of wish that he was shooting this. You know what i mean. Yeah i wish he'd done like ten movies carpenter. But whatever i mean he obviously his legacy is so extraordinary even like his work going back to like i'm obsessed with the which came from the c. Partially he's because he's like this on credited dp on it. But it's like you know you start to see like his his genius pretty early on like his framing and sense of light in darkness that is just unmatched I'm sitting here in his. Imdb and this is true or not that he's shooting the boba fett tv. Show i it. Does say that. I don't know i mean which he has become very exciting for me. It would be citing. He's in this weird kind of like still works but mostly on things you kinda never heard of like and his last two major movies were home again and jack and jackie. Home again yeah. It's it's just odd that he's found himself in this weird kind of mild comedy or and he did a couple of west wings feels like right. Just what are you want like. I'll do it which is crazy because the first half of his career so loaded many. He just doesn't want to do anything though. Yeah he might just want to to buy. We were talking about having earlier but he does so work a lot like he has credits every year. A lot of them are short films. Though or it's things you haven't heard of. I also think there's this thing i mean it's like typecasting is such an issue throughout the industry even when you get to people behind the camera you know and above the line crew. Were you look at him. And you're like oh he shoots. Who framed roger rabbit right. And that's this like absolutely astonishing masterwork of cinematography and he like redefining. All of these sort of tricks and tools for how you integrate two different elements in the same shot and then like after that. Obviously he does it back to the future sequels. He does hook like he's he's doing other things but then it's sort of like oh he's become the default guy. If you wanna put an animated character in a movie so interspersed with apollo thirteen and shit. Death becomes her. Then we'll jurassic park of course spielberg's bring him on because he's going to be sort of pioneering all this new. Cgi stuff and then he does casper then he does flubber. Then he does looney tunes back in action and garfield you know and now you're at this point where he's made garfield and it's like well i don't know he's the guy who made garfield by what he hire him to make.

"Today. We check in with the host of the la times podcast chasing cosby who spoke after cosby's released with women who've accused cosby of sexual assault in the past and we also speak with a lawyer who has long gone after sexual predators and institutions that protect them by experience with prosecutors and there are some notable exceptions is that they won't charge these cases unless it's an absolute walk before we began a warning to our listeners that this episode will go into details of alleged sexual assaults in the case of bill cosby the pennsylvania supreme court wrote the prosecutors had promised him legal immunity from future criminal charges in exchange for testifying in a two thousand six civil lawsuit in it plaintiff andrea constand alleged cosby drugged and assaulted. Her and the civil suit was settled. A new district attorney then decided to prosecute cosby on those charges in two thousand sixteen and a jury found him guilty of indecent assault against constant the pennsylvania supreme court said that prosecution violated the agreement made by the prior. Da so on. June thirtieth cosby was released from prison and able to go home. He flashed a v for victory. Sign as he reaches front door greeted by supporters. Here's a spokesperson andrew. Wyatt we wanna thank the pennsylvania. State supreme court has to early for review. Mr qazis appeal but also being the life to live fan. Cosby's accusers of course felt differently. Nikki weisensee megan is author of the book chasing cosby and the host of the la times podcast of the same name. She interviewed four of cosby's alleged victims after bill. Cosby's release you know. There's the range of emotions Some talked about crying all night and they said it was like a gut punch When i talked to. Pj masks in the next day she. She was just like her. Shitter face was swollen from crying Lily bernard's that it was like a punch to the stomach. She'd been crying all night to restore knees. She one of the original. Jane does that came forward to two thousand five. She's talked about being scared for the first time. In three years this has cosby would also intimidate them by threatening to sue them if they said anything about him and she's one of the ones that actually won the defamation lawsuit against him so tamara green was a little more practical. She's an attorney and she kind of understands the legal system. I mean her view to is he serves eating. Get off scot-free. He served three years And that's not i mean at. His sentence was three to ten years so we got you know he did. Almost the minimum in prison. Changes you however. He had just been denied parole. Because he wasn't cooperating in prison he was designated as sexually violent predator and he was supposed to be going to treatment for it and he wouldn't go because he said i'm innocent and that's what the the sad thing about all this is. He just acknowledge. He made mistakes that he did things. He's not proud of and he was sorry for them. It would it. Would he could move on with the rest of his life and enjoy the rest of his life and he third could be some healing with some of these survivors. But he's not doing that. And that and this. This whole thing just reeks. The supreme court decision makes no legal sense whatsoever. Bill cosby became a pop culture powerhouse. An actor and author a comedian. A black man succeeded in white world. So when did you start to hear rumors about what cosby was doing to some women. You know. I never heard any rumors until the story broke on the news in philadelphia on january. Twenty two thousand five that he'd been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman who who had worked at temple university and i had grown up. I was a fan of the cosby show. I watch fat albert and the cosby kids on saturday morning cartoons so i was really shocked and my reaction was not the cause. 'cause this just wasn't the image i have him in my head but as journalists. Your job is to separate your personal feelings from your job. And so i set my personal feelings aside and i just sat out to find out the truth. What's interesting during cosby's career people say. Oh we had no clue how could he of all people could have done it but he was making jokes as far back as the seventies about drugging women and yet there was never any public backlash against him. This was common knowledge in hollywood for decades. That he was doing this to women he would approach an agent and say i want to meet such and such and the agent was set up the call and then he would groom them then he would get on the phone with their parents and the parents and then when he had them gain their trust and he got the girl alone in a room he would drug and sexually assault them. I mean he had a variety of ways. He attained his victims. But the the common thread is. He had many many many enablers the william morris agency when the his agent. Tom elliott said. The william morris agency one of victims was at least as assistant and she Testified at the first trial and she said cosby was. Probably the most powerful client william morris at the time this happened to her which was around nineteen ninety and the heave and had his own dedicated phone line that he called into william morris when he called. You've spoken to andrea constand. And she shared her story many times. Can you share what happened to her. And just want to get a little background under to so people understand this because this is what made me start finding her credible back in two thousand and five andrea was one of the top high school players in basketball players in canada. She was recruited by fifty to sixty colleges in the us and she dreamed of being in the wnba and when it became clear. Those dreams of playing in wnba weren't going to happen. She got this call from dawn staley. Who was the basketball coach for the women's basketball team at temple. University and dawn asked to be her director of operations. So that's how andrea came to live in philly in late two thousand two and cosby on the board of trustees of temple university and one of its most famous alum although he got one of those honorary degrees because he didn't actually finish there and donor introduced him to andrea at a basketball game and he followed up with that with a phone call and he became her mentor and her friend. I mean she looked at him like a grandfather figure because he's ten years older than her own father when the deposition cosby's deposition got released. He lays out this whole thing and she'd been to dinner at his house. Andrea didn't take prescription medications or anything. She's very into holistic therapies and they had talked about that and so he told her he could tell she was stressed and she told him to stress Here i'll get you something for that. And she said what are they and he said herbal medication and she said okay and because she trusted him and she took it and within twenty minutes. She's wobbly she he. She's having a hard time. Like standing a pithy gets up and he escorts her over to the couch and laser down and she's frozen. She can't move she.
"assault" Discussed on Unladylike
"Hey y'all and welcome to unladylike. I'm caroline. I'm kristen this episode. We're discussing sexual trauma and ptsd so heads up. If you prefer to sit this episode out. Last week on the show tanya silverado. Anum told us about exiting abusive relationship with former new york attorney. General eric schneiderman this week. We're focusing on something that we rarely talk about. You've survived sexual trauma. But then what one of the things that like my past self immediately afterwards. Or when i was starting to process my trauma would like to know. Is you know what's normal for a rape survivor. What does it look like. After somebody has experienced a rape or sexual assault you know what are their attitudes. Which are their beliefs. Thinking that's judith. She's one of a number of unladylike listeners who've reached out to us with similar questions and that's why we wanted to make this episode the ripple effects of rape and abuse our real. There can be loss of just unexpected triggers. Ptsd there is a whole range of what is normal another big question that judith and other listeners brought up was like managing the day to day ripple effects can be really shitty. But about dating. Like how do you approach sexual intimacy again. Carolina are definitely not equipped to those questions on our own so we will be getting some expert insight later in the show then we do have a happy ending not to spoil it. We're gonna be talking with the woman y'all heard at the top of the episode. We're calling her d. m. and she's another one of the unladylike listeners. Who wrote to us about life and dating after sexual assault diem story is proof that yes you can come out on the other side. But first we're starting with judith. Back in november. Twenty nineteen at judith. Unladylike she wrote. I wanted to ask if you could sort of dive into life after rape. I asked because i myself was raped multiple times while serving in the military. And i'm still suffering from the physical mental and emotional trauma a decade. Later i have panic attacks. Whenever i even think i'm being hit on. How do i rebuild when that idea of who i was an am has been seemingly so irrevocably damaged. So a few weeks ago. We called judith. Up to talk about it will in that email. You expressed a desire for quote returning to the woman. I was before the rapes. So how would you describe that woman. Oh my goodness. I'm more her. Every day i was very young when it happened. so it's kind of like also morning my teenage self before that had happened. I was bowled. I was outgoing. I was friends to everybody. I was unapologetic. And who i was and i just now you know after everything that happened i have found that might trust for people is gone. I find it difficult to make friends. I find it difficult to even trust my family members at this point so one i'm looking for is a return to being more confident in who i am and who i was and having that sort of self competence in trusting others and billy and trusting others for years after the rapes judith was in full denial about what happened. She told us that. In the initial phase of that denial. She became hyper sexual trying to convince herself that what had happened to her wasn't rape it was what she wanted. A lot of. It was fear to the denial phase. Oh my god. There was so much fear anxiety. And i felt like there was literally no one. I could turn to not a single person on the entire earth. I couldn't tell my parents and anyways what could they do you know. I didn't have friends that i could turn to and say all fuck. This is what i'm going through. You know it was of the loneliest experiences in my life. What were dating and relationships like at the time i gosh. Let's see. I tried my best really to be in a relationship afterwards but because again i didn't have that trust with people and it wasn't able to quote unquote perform the sort of expected relationship intimacy. I found it difficult to connect with people. I had two very serious relationships to the point where we were engaged and the frustration that those gentlemen had experience with me reached a boiling point to where there was mistrust. there is distrust. there was a lot of suspicion. And why i wasn't intimate with him in wire would not open up with them. And after the second. You know relationship imploded. I just swore off relationships altogether. I haven't been in a relationship for the better. Half of a decade now in that first relationship judith mentioned she disclosed what had happened to her boyfriend but she quickly regretted it you know he was as young as i was. I think we were both twenty at the time. And he didn't really have the tools for the knowledge the experience to handle that sort of trauma that is left on was going through but he stayed up. Asked me well. it's been nine months. Weren't you over this yet. And oh my god after that. Just completely shut down. I was like okay in my head. That lesson was just instantly learned. Do not open up about this because they will not care you know and then after that relationship had ended and i got into my second sears relationship i was way more hesitant to tell them what had happened and it was to the point where it was the big secret that i had that i couldn't reveal to anybody because i didn't want that sort of rejection and that sort of retraumatize ation of not believing why i was behaving the way i was and why it was so cold and distant.
