NBA-led walkout over Jacob Blake's shooting marks evolution of protest in pro sports

"N B, A to MLB to MLS, Tennessee NFL and some college teams, players walked off of basketball and tennis courts and practice fields to show solidarity and support social justice in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake. A black man in Kenosha, Wisconsin. We asked Richard Lap Chick, head of the Institute for Diversity and Ethics and Sport at the University of Central Florida. Whether folks should be surprised sports activism in the sixties. You know, we're talking about Tommy spoken John Carlos and Mohammed Ali. Basically. They're the central figures and already face going to prison. As a result of refusing to go to Vietnam, Carlson spent literally were unemployed for seven years.

What's going on over social justice issue is really unprecedented. Having those numbers and the unison. That took place on and then spread to other leads the WN ba Major League Soccer baseball individual athletes taking stands. We're in a completely different era. Athlete activism today than we were two years ago, and somebody has tried to get out there to be active during the whole 50 years. It's incredibly hard for me to see what we're doing, because I think we had to somebody more focus on innovation situation in the United States because of the impact of the pandemic and reopening schools are focused. It shifted from the racial reckoning to the pandemic, and that's gonna help us keep focused on both.

"Mentioned this. But what were you doing before? I think he did say this quickly. But what was your career before for this? I was an adjunct instructor for ten years. Okay, right so at a university so works Johnny from classroom. Okay, so I'm assuming you never went back to that since you start coding. I did so. I also remind drama. Even when I was in the hospital I was still teaching I was teaching online, and then I think I did another semester after and then one of the interesting things is united been doing it so long that I almost forgot what it felt like to really love what you're doing. Because I think at some point, the joy in teaching went away. It was really kind of clouded by school politics. Politics in in things like that, and when I started learning to code, and I'm learning this new skill. I really love this like I. Want to get up everyday and do it, and at that point I think that right about the time I entered flat iron school and I knew this is going to be more than just a hobby for me. This is GonNa be a new chapter in my life, and that's when I stopped teaching. So maybe jumping around here, but I'm just very curious. What was it like when you were learning? Initially end even when you're going through flat iron school because you have four children and I assume they're all pretty young. Right like you had just be given. Birth started learning to code and then went to a coding bootcamp. It was challenging so at the time I had a one year old, a three year old, a six year old, and an eight year old, and we had transitioned them from home schooling into going to school, so two of them were in school, and then the two youngest ones were at home with me, and it was I mean the the whole scenario is challenging because I'm redefining my life I had never imagined that this would be a part of my story. Story so you know people ask you that question what your life can look like in five years and like I never would have dreamt that. This is what my life would have looked like five years ago, not only were they redefining what my career was, but I was redefining who I was as a person coming out of trauma, and so I really had to find for me I find scheduled very comforting and sorry. His working hard to find blocks of time. Time and so eventually that turned into was I was waking up at four thirty in the morning and coating a couple of hours before getting the kids to school now when I started it wasn't that four thirty up because I had a baby that was still waking up at night, and so it was maybe six o'clock in the morning until six thirty I do a little bit, and then at nap time I would do a little bit, and then like after. After four PM I started to go brain dead I can't think straight, and so it's hard for me to go then, but if I if I had to. There were some late nights that are just muscled through it in order to get done what I needed to get done at every possible. Actually it's not unlike now through the pandemic West kids at home, I trying to find all of those bits of time to do the thing that I really enjoyed doing. Yeah Wow, what a story! And when you were chatting I, was just thinking about. There's a lot of folks have had on the show or speaker. People I've spoken to over email. Who are learning to code? Maybe they're few months few years. Whatever and they'll do similar world. They'll wake up really early before anyone else's away, if they have family and they'll. Learn to code for a few hours and then get on with their day and then got you spoken to people. It's kind of the opposite. They wait till everyone goes to bed. They stay up really late and then that's when they do stuff. When like sort of like the houses? Quiet can actually focus for you know a prolonged period of time. Okay, so you start learning with free co camouflaged iron I assumed that was their remote program because they have the remote learning right right? It was part time self paced, or it was not part time it was self paced. Full Stack? Okay in about. How long were you going through that? It's hooked me eleven months and I think I was pretty proud of the pace that I, said I really had to challenge myself with you know working with the kids, and in having a couple of part time jobs and making it through that so for me, it was. Eleven months I went through a lot of recovery over those eleven

"Vanessa more spoke out this week about her role on Riverdale If you watch Riverdale, you know that Vanessa Morgan plays Tony Topaz. ed, she posted. Saying that she is tired of how black people are portrayed in media, tired of us being portrayed as thugs, dangerous or angry, scary people tired of us being used as sidekick, non dimensional characters to our white leads are only used in the ads for diversity, but not actually in the show. And you know. It's it says a lot about her character. Which I think is very fair because she. After I would say like Vanessa Morgan's character. was bumped up from recurring regular beginning with riverdale third season, but she has only been. Cheryl blossoms like love interests like they never really gave her kind of own background her own story. They've just kind of had this romance She also. said that you know my role on. Riverdale has nothing to do with my fellow classmates friends. They don't write the show so no need to attack them. They don't call the shots. I know they have my back. She also said that she is the only black series regular, but also paid the least amount of money she also you know resit garlic gone for days replying to someone and you know there has been support Lily reinhart like Rebecca. We Love You and support you ten thousand percent. and. It's just I opening because you don't. End! We have to come. We have tabby discussions because. I watching the show had not even really ever thought about that until now she puts it out I think about all the episodes I watch on like wow, that is, that is so true. Shame on me for not noticing that in shame on her, you know the writers around may change, but now she is taking since speaking out. Yeah, I've never watched riverdell. So I don't exactly know her character or the other you know. I know who's on the show, but I don't really know the dynamic of the show, but I think what I'm realizing in this. Is like the most important thing that we can do is listen and learn because you're right. This is a very eye opening thing. I would have never known this night. I don't even think I would have thought this can help you just or not. You don't realize what goes on behind the scenes of shows like this that it just has been happening since the beginning of time, and you know it's why we're educating ourselves in why we're telling other people to educate themselves, because this is something that these people have been having to deal with and we just we just didn't know about it, and it's yes, it's fucked up. It really is fucked up when you really think about it like. Why is she getting paid less than other people why when she is just as much as part of the show is everybody else right if she is if her character is now a series regular along with all these other characters. You think. How would you possibly be getting paid the least amount new that is so. Sto, suspicious in so just like it just continues to show how our country with the just. Systematic racism that we've had that just because of our privilege, we just have not really paid attention to or even realized until. We have have seen the facts in senior. It lay out in front of us, it's. Horrifying, it's so sad and now you know the Riverdell Creator. Put out a statement and said we hear Vanessa. We love the Nessa. She's right. We're sorry we make the same promise to you that we did to her. We'll do better to honor her the character she plays as well as all of our actors, inheritors of color changes happening and we will continue, and it will continue to happen. Riverdale, at bigger, not smaller Riverdale. Will be part of the movement, not outside of it. All the riverdell writers made Jim Nation. To block lives, matter outlay, but we know where the work must happen trust in the writer's room. Yes so I think that the only person that can judge the riverdell writers. Creator's intentions at this point is been initiate. She sees a change if she feels like they're actually doing their part than I'm sure she will. Talk about it yet, but it's not a not up to us to decide that I don't like you said. I feel wrong that I would have never even thought about this but I'm happy. That Vanessa has brought to light to educate us on the fact that this is real stuff that is happening right and you know other. Actors and actresses who have been on Riverdale have agreed with Vanessa Lake you. You saw the way I wash the show so like you saw the way that like the pussycats in the beginning of the series were portrayed, and how like they never really got any storyline whatsoever, they were kind of on the show and then Just put broken up. And then they were, they were just their characters were just no longer a part of the show, so there's definitely a lot of changes that. Could be made. Across the Board Not Riverdale I'm sure tons of. Shows. That are on right now and like you said Vanessa will be the one to decide if riverdale.

"This week from multiple different people after she tweeted about the death of George Floyd her Glee Co Star Samantha where Re tweeted and started this movement against Liam Michelle at this point in time. Yeah, I feel like with Leeann Michelle. We were just waiting for the shoe to drop the other shoe to drop right Burgess, waiting for somebody to say something, and then it just became a snowball fact everyone was like. Oh, we're telling our lay. Michelle stories I've got one. Yup, just it just has gone on for. Basically last week at this point. So Samantha Re tweeted. Remember when you may my first television gig on a living hell I'll never forget it i. believe you told everyone you. If you had the opportunity, you would shit in my wig. Amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood. So that was. The first thing now said. What a lot of other things have been said. And, then it was just everybody else really obviously jumping on and saying their experiences with leave Michelle. I do not know if I'm saying this guy's name correctly I'm probably not DAB DAB Ebay he was. So on Glee as well and he retrieves a girl. You wouldn't let me sit at the table with the other cast members because I didn't belong there Fuck you Leah and. It really just continued on Amber Riley. While this was going on had just tweeted a Gif of her sipping tea like it was of herself. Seven was like ooh. What's going on there? She later talked about obviously obviously more of it, but then. It went online. It got worse because Lia had put out an apology. On her instagram and People like that also didn't really sit well people because like she didn't really apologize. For anything she just reward. What she said she said one of the most important lessons the last few weeks is that we need to take the time to listen and learn about other people's perspectives at any role. We have played or anything we can do to help address the injustices that they face. When I tweeted the other day, it was meant to be a show of support for our friends and neighbors in communities of color during this really difficult time, but the responses. I received what I posted have made me also focused specifically on how my oh behavior, towards fellow cast members was perceived by them. While I, don't remember ever making the specific statement and I have never judged others by their background or color of their skin. That's not really the point. What matters is that? I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people whether it was my privileged position in perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times, or whether it's just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult. I, apologize for my behavior and. For any pain I have caused. We can all grow and change I have definitely use these past for months to reflect on my shortcomings, I have a couple of months from becoming a mother and I know I need to keep He'd be better myself. Take responsibility for my actions that I can be a real role model for my child, and so I can pass along my lessons mistakes so that they can learn from me I. listened to these criticisms I am learning while. I'm very sorry. I will be better in the future from this experience. So she put out that apology. hellofresh said they were no longer going to to work with her and then more Gli. co-stars came out other people that have worked with her on different shows. Just seem pretty all over. This is something Ama-. Riley said she said I'm not going to say that. The Michelle is racist. That's not what I'm saying. That was the assumption because of what's going. On right now in the world and happened towards a black person. I'm not going to say that she's racist. She's also pregnant. I think that everyone needs to chill. y'All dragged her for a couple of days, but at the same time in my inbox there are a lot of black actors and actresses, telling me their stories and letting me know the have dealt with the same things. Onset being terrorized on the white pros there leads up their show. Yeah so! Liam Michelle. I think Michelle is just a bad person. I think I think we just got a call it what it is. An issue. Just add purchase an asshole to everyone in. Every way that all around we in Michele's just just. Been Yes, she just hasn't been aware of human being like she's just. Being mean her entire life acting like a diva, and not to throw our own experiences in there, but I'll say at one time for the people who do recall on this show Liam Michele wants canceled an interview with us right in front of our face while we were standing in front of right. And it was done in a very rude manner end. When land occurred, we were told by other people in Syria said, it was not the first time. Something like this has happened right we. We showed up too serious to interview Shell. She standing right there and then contacts. Our Talent Booker Right to say that she. Should. Generals per people contact candidates gotten for the day standing right there. We just tell us you want us to interview interview and it and it wasn't even us. It was like multiple shows is yes like I that you know whatever and ever everybody has bad days. That is for sure you know what unhappy she wasn't on our show how? Young everything how she's been to settle every for sure, everybody has their bad days, but clearly from what it seems like. This, many people who have had bad experiences with her end and you hope that. Maybe you've been blind being that much of an asshole. Nobody's nobody's said straight your face all these years much of an asshole you are, and maybe this is what it what it'll take for her to be like damn. I was an asshole. Maybe I shouldn't be such a hassle as a record amount of assholes that I just. Kinda crazy though like I'll just add onto your asshole trains yet how you can be asshole. There's so many people never realize it right about the amount of people we have also said could be yes selfish to.

"There is just a privilege itself that we are able to do that because we are not black so that you know we're. We're not living with it, so it's crazy because there has been this just absolute desire to constantly see what's going on I. Mean Social Media has been has been non non stop because people have been sharing and telling their stories and posting learning, which is great, because there's so many great resources out there now on, people are sharing so many great things black on businesses in in places to go shop at all these amazing things. And on top of that just showing sports signing petitions. Writing emails to your to your local government. At all those amazing things, but it's. It's. It's a lot so to consume a lot of that then. Sometimes you just got A. One. Point. Were you get the notification that you've seen every post that you can yeah for the last two days at the lot? I think that I think you're allowed to put down your phone for just a little bit. Yes? You know that doesn't mean. Stop Educating Yourself. There just needs find rider place besides right there. Yes, there are plenty of other. Plenty of other outlets and things to do so. Yeah, I think that's that's what I wanted to say. Right I'm good all right, so let's get into the topic for today's episode We have Leah Michelle. Who you know it's hard to focus on one thing that she's doing wrong. At the moment because there is a whole list of people who have a problem with Michelle Sabrina get right into that We have Garett from the BACHELORETTE.

"Kind of ongoing themes that we have here on revision path for this year is equitable futures. I got this idea actually. Last year I went to a conference at Harvard. Call blackened design and one of the sort of things that they were talking about a lot. Was You know black people in the future like where do we see ourselves et Cetera? You know we're coming up on twenty twenty. That's very kind of big futuristic year as people think about that with pop culture et Cetera. So how are you helping to build a more equitable future? The work that you're doing I think a big thing facing like black designers in Seattle or just in general is awareness and so a lot of like in building community is just increasing awareness. Both like each other but then also have different jobs leg. It's been really great to be able to connect someone who is just trying to get into design or they're super young just out of college trying to find a mentor and connect them with someone who is various damaged in that field and to build relationships there to start kind of like helping each other. Get to the places that we want to be. So I think just providing opportunity is is a big part of what I've been focusing on but then also a lot of my role with the group has not only been like the community organizing but also the bench organizing and that's been mostly on kind of the the community plus allies or like community plus conspirators. Like what I like to call it where we not only have like the black designed Seattle community but we also have other folks from diversity inclusion space and then also the wider community in some ways I think just having discussions around being the only lack designer in all that stuff in that space a super super important so like I think just having that discussion on a larger level and just like building awareness of this is a problem like if you only have one black designer that is an issue like you should be focusing on having a diverse workplace. Both like not just racially but agewise socio-economically everything and so I think just creating spaces for those conversations to happen is one of the other ways. I'm trying to help contribute to more equitable feature nice. It's twenty twenty five. Where do you see yourself in the next five years That's so hard. There's a lot of I'm not sure I I feel like so much of my life has like. He asked me five years ago where he saw myself where I would see myself now. It's so completely different like it's so very different and I've just been really enjoying that journey. I really hope that five years the future our community is not just larger. But it's you know it's also has greater impact. I hope that there's I'm in a place where able to see the community. Be a space where people are going to find mentors or manatees and finding ways to get involved with like schools and stuff or just having us in conversation. I think for me personally. I don't know I definitely love being a designer. I don't think I want to be a manager. So that's w not in there but I just having like a larger scope on projects and just really being able to think like have a position where I'm able to strategically really look at the future of a project would be super exciting and hopefully by then my van is done and I'm just traveling around in some ways working from the van from a lot of awesome locations. Nice we'll just to kind of wrap things up here. Where can our audience find out more about you about your work on line totally so my website is Rebecca Mark Dot Com and? I am on Lincoln Instagram at Beck's and also there's a black person Seattle group both on facebook an lingayen? It's just black dissenters. Seattle SHOULD BE SUPER searchable. Well Becca Markham. I WanNa thank you so much for coming on the show when I first heard about you actually mentioned this during the designer and designer interview. I heard about you when I heard about the group announcing I gotta half around the show. 'cause I feel like there's more of a story there and so getting to you know.

"The first year you went to the second one and then the second third fourth or whatever. It was all day like maybe like nine. Am to about seven pm or something. And I was losing steam somewhere in the sixth interview. I I remember. They were asking me about notepad. And how would you change note pad if you were someone that wrote in a language that went right to left? It's in a left to right and I don't know what my answer was but it clearly was not the right answer because I've been making now at that. Oh my goodness yeah. Tech interviews are definitely. They're they're very legendary as far as being incredibly long day. So I've I've done interviews. I went through the process facebook. I've been you know was a Amazon zillow's all kind of like pretty much the same in a lot of ways but with Amazon I was actually late after a contract ended. I kind of was thinking that the my team was contracting with wasn't going to hire full time so I actually started talking to another team at Amazon into. They decided to put me through the loop and then my team found out. I was like hey. Fyi like they'll reach out to you to see about my performance and stuff and so they actually hurried up. They're hiring process than joined by loop so I was actually interviewing with two different teams on the same day in the same room and so that just like made my interview process even longer. I think I had like seven back to back interviews or something crazy. It was like so much. It shouldn't be like the portfolio review. At the beginning. It was. Yeah it was a very kind of in the same way a very very long day. Wow I didn't know that that interview question is something that was still being thrown around that way. That's why not. Yeah Tim Actually Win. I went over to Zillow. He handled the the white boarding and product thinking session. I'm part of the interview and he did ask me. He's like you need to. I think he added complexity. He's like all right. You need to design an alarm clock for a blind person that only has one button and so like there was like I couldn't avoid couldn't do like. Oh there's a you know a tactile interface it was supposed to be like an analog alarm clock so part of like the beginning of that conversation was like wait. What it's like just like an old one that you like your grandparents have with red numbers. He's a guest in. I had essentially just wipe out so but I find it so hilarious that you also got that a member of you. I'm trying to how I answered the question. I think I said I was saying something about like I tracking because person is no eight now I tracking because the person is blind. I said something about doing a lot of voice prompts. I remember something about voice. Prompts being able to talk through how this would go so you'd have to have some kind of like conversation flow chart of how to like set the clock in all this sort of stuff and maybe have some type of a haptic feedback because you would be able to touch it. So maybe not necessarily Braille but like a series of operations or something like that. Let you know that you know certain commands are being done properly or things like that. This was so long ago I mean they like it. Wasn't it wasn't enough for me to actually the job there but that was years and years ago. I mean two thousand two. I also interviewed for Real player that year. Am I know one Rangel player anymore? So as far back afar back was they're using it like eighteen years later though hip. Tim Is using it thirteen. So now you're also in Grad School. Is that right at the University of Washington. Yes I am. How's that going? It is going well actually took this quarter off GESTA. There's a lot of changes at work so I decided to really try to focus on that and so it's been going really well. I essentially went back to Grad school because I saw the the lack of black designers in I was like all right like can I not only build a community but also research actually find out why that's the case and so I was thinking that people are also a lot more willing to open up to someone as a Grad student. If I'm a Grad student versus like Gay Art Director Amazon asking you these questions and so it was also very aware of like my own positioning going into like. Actually you know going to folks into companies asking what their experience was being. A student definitely helped me maintain a certain level of they were just scared me so but also gave me that space to do that research and then to start exploring things and also have like not directly associated with my day to day job. So I mean it's it's gone great for one of the first projects that I did was like a quick and dirty research over. You know why. There's no block designers where they are and then. I was actually okay like if if there's like designers you know whether it's because of Coulter says you know just our racial history here in the US. What can we do to to start to change that and change that story and so part of that solution was like building a community? Because I feel like there's a lot of people who are like super excited about giving back to the community as far as like. Oh I want to go. Volunteer for arts based organization. Or Oh I want to go lake. Be a mentor for folks. But people don't know where to go for it and so so my thinking was if I build a community than I'll bring a lot of passions into a certain space and from there people can then organize and so in like start to have these like larger conversations and so really like the first event that ended up doing over at Amazon. Last August was like a direct result of some of the research and solution. I did as part of one of those classes. That's interesting that kind of you know the work that you're doing with black designers. Seattle kind of in a way came out of the researcher doing at Grad School. Yeah no it definitely definitely did. I mean that was the whole reason we had to go back. I think a lot of times I just wanted the accountability of actually doing the research of actually like having time said a set aside to really focus on this. I unlike design in diversity and inclusion. I'm in so really like going to school. Having classes I would out essentially pick to really fit a need that I saw in my own journey as I explore Diversity in Zion and all that stuff and so like as I as I went. I was a great. This will be really good for this. That will be good for that. And so I really try to pair up what I needed in the real world with classes taking. So those products in those outputs from those classes would be immediately like applicable. Can you talk a little bit about I? Guess some of your research like. I'm curious to know what you do have FAO from sort of researching the lack of black designers in the industry. Totally so a big part. What I was doing was trying to capture into hear the stories. I've current black designers how they got to design and all that stuff and so a lot of designers. I found like didn't go to school for design. It was pretty much correspond a lot of my research where I A. Huge percentage of African Americans blacks in the US when they go to college there right now. Our first generation and so their parents didn't go to college. And so if you have like forty percent of those folks who are in college. They're probably not going to go for an arts degree like if their parents their community are really sacrificing to get them to college. They're not like. Oh Yeah. I'M GONNA go for quote in Arts degree. It was like I'm going for finance or business or something along those lines because there's the larger kind of view of design is that a business degree will get you where you wanna go economically whereas like an arts degree is directly. Oh you doing arts degrees. So you're going to wait tables or something like when I didn't even went to school I got some side is for some people be like. Oh really you like. Are you sure you want to go to film school? Like really like you're not gonNA make any money but it's you know the perception of design just even within our community is can be so different whereas now because I did get an arts degree and then I am also in the position I am now. I'll go home and then I've aunts uncles like oh my gosh. She should really talk to your little cousin who draws abstractly because they could be designer to their perception of success has definitely changed just by seeing someone go through it. Yeah I always will say on here like you can't be what you don't see so being kind of see someone else that looks like you in a position like that really makes such a big difference in knowing whether or not this is something that you can actually do for yourself so yeah. I feel where you're coming from. What lessons did you learn this past year? Like how do you feel you've grown and improved? I feel like even though I started at a community of black designers. I feel like I didn't really realize the benefits of it and like right now to seeing. How subgroups that have come off of the blazers a Seattle community. I've just really. I think I've seen and really dislike loved and been in been built up by like a huge group of people. Like even this social distancing time I was just texting a group of folks buy met through the Seattle network because on Monday. We're all gonna get together and like drink wine over facetime. And so it's it's just been a really. I think like the importance of community is one thing I've really realized in also it doesn't take much to have an impact. You just gotTa do somethin' like you just have to give life whatever. It is like something to work with. When I first started the community I was like I can't organize a bunch of stuff but I can tell people to show up at a restaurant where I'll just at a bar where I'll make a reservation and so that was like honestly the the bare minimum that anyone could really do like that small thing had like a huge impact and so I think just doing something has really been bad like even when I was first trying to get into design like I was so paralyzed by the amount that had to be done but like just by doing little things like finding that design. I really liked. Then you know emulating it. I like was able to take small steps into like into the place That I wanted to be. I guess other than that. I I was at Amazon. Her for years Zillow around I think six or seven months now and I have definitely just enjoyed being in a different space learning fully. Different things coming out of my element. I think just in that I kinda forgotten because I was on the same team for about four years like what that was like but I definitely see like huge benefits because of it so I think that was more like a reminder. What are you spend time on when you're not working? Yeah my husband and I. We actually recently bought a sprinter van that were tricking out. It's kind of like pimp my ride for Vance to get more like adventure Vani so I make not only the only one sometimes of my being black like at work. Not so much anymore zillow. But I'm also like the only black chick in the forest usually so I do a lot of a lot of rock climbing mountain biking camping and all that stuff and so right now you know. We've been using the time that we would normally be commuting. Just trying to build our band so like a beds going in their kitchens. Going in there will bathrooms going in there and so we just been doing a lot of woodworking all that stuff to get that together nineties. That sounds like a really cool project to work on. It's really fine because like digital designer you have. I can build a cad model of what I want the van to be what I want like a small house prior to be but then like actually like getting weighed getting like metal and whatever else and actually physically building it is like.

"Out there in the community. So that's great Spanish. Well okay. Findings are at Tim. He's actually now at facebook. He was in between that between Microsoft and facebook. He was at Zillow so he actually is the one who pulled me over to Zillow. A really small world is a very small world. So how long has the group been going on now just about a year in three months? Honestly so it's been the first year we really really really focusing on like just get each other together and like having sporadic happy hours. We had one big event the first year and then this year. Kinda focusing on how we can actually start to bring some order to the madness and have CONC- Benz but yeah we're definitely still in an infancy. Wow I know. There's a group in Seattle. You may have heard of a call here Seattle. Have you heard of? Don't think I have and do not think I have so here. Seattle is a I guess. It's more geared towards tech. I'm not one hundred percents. Sure but I know that. Four guys run it. Seth style talk of Complete Todd Innings and two other people who I? I can't recall but I know that they do something not necessarily similar to what you're doing with black czars Seattle because you're focusing more on design. I think for them. They focused more on kind of deny in tech in general designed sometimes ends up being kind of a subset of that but that might be a group worth you know reaching out to to connect with. Here's table totally. Yeah it's been. It's been a really amazing. I feel like this year. I've really started to connect with other groups like that. There's a few other ones. Were doing similar things and say like asthma are Kinda like upping our cadence events. It's been fun to see kind of who he can partner with. You have like similar initiatives and then also how hidden then go back and recharge to the community. There's a few arts based organizations that work with K through twelve schools in the area. And so it's like how can we actually like come together as a community as a group and then start to help out these other these other organizations as I do stuff I really WanNa make up.

"Let's go back to the time when you're leaving American University you're about to head out to Washington. Was that a a big change in terms of time or did you have kind of a few design. Gigs between there before you made the move so in DC. I didn't again to design until a lot later on. I think it was my like last two or three quarters of school. I essentially. I realized that I was going to be some like starving documentary. Filmmaker have to learn how to make my own poster and so I took a design. Class ended up really liking it and then went from there so at first there was a. I was able to mix it up with some of the storytelling internships had. I actually ended up doing a small animation and putting it out for some awards thing at my school and actually won best new media and the prize of that wasn't internship a design company so that was my first kind of design gig was me in a small basement. Making a lot of different illustrations for one of the Smithsonian's and so I don't even think they actually ended up using it. I think the way totally different direction after he left. But that was I think for me. A great experience just learning learning from the designers there but then also learn new program. I basically try to do as many kind of small just contracting stuff or freelance gigs. It was very nice having parents who were in the nonprofit sector because they always need marketing work. A lot of the early things I had was just making some marketing materials or teaching materials for them. So that definitely gave me a lot of practice and then from me. It was like because I really didn't know what a good designer was especially like. What a good junior designer was. I really was dressed looking at different people's portfolios of line. I was looking as going on like design spearation and also like pinterest trying to find his. I really liked and so I just gave myself projects that I just like. Trying like emulate the style or something of just as try and build that portfolio out. That's a really good idea. I tell people that a lot you know in terms of. How do they find some kind of project or thing to work on that? Lets them do a lot of different skills? I'll tell you kind of have to make it yourself. Allow those opportunities. Don't just come to you pre made or if there's something that you're really passionate about turn that into a project at work on it and like let that thing that you help kind of build your skills for yet totally like some of it like for my parents they would want to know presentation slide. What it might be better as an animated video so I would just work through animation skills well and learn animation while making the video or I know there was a big wave of popularity for like minimalist movie posters and stuff and so I was like what are my favorite movie posters or one of my favorite movies. Let me just make a few posters for these. Tv shows? Like how it I take this concept and then do it in my style or like really anything else so it definitely helps to build that out and people actually love seeing all these little lake passion projects. When I first got started so like at first I was worried that wasn't showing like professional work but he will really really tended to enjoy just seeing that. I had that that excitement for doing the passion to actually just go off and do it on man. Absolutely those are skills that employers have I would say even people that just want to work with you on a collaborative basis. They want to see that passion because honestly the skills are. I hate to say transferable but they kinda mar like you know. There's a lot of people that can work in photoshop or sketch. Or what have you and make something that looks really nice but is a separate passionate about or are they kind of just like an adequate set of hands. That are able to put something together. You know yeah totally. Yeah so we found a couple of people on the show who have moved to Seattle and they've often talked about the Seattle freeze which were those. That are listing. Kind of this I guess you could it. A wartime stance social distancing company. Social will say that we first moved to Washington. Did you experience any of that? Oh totally totally. I mean. I'm from California where he just call someone up when you're on the way to their house or like. Hey let's go and eat right now and then in Brazil. It's like a very warm culture. You're always hugging people doing kisses on the cheek all that stuff and then DC. There's still that environment. If you're heading to the southeast where mostly black people and so people are always like talking to each other in the grocery stores and everything else and then he come here and it's like crickets. It was definitely hard in the beginning. Just trying to break into feel that I had no idea like how to break into while also trying to deal with like what is networking. How is that working awkward? Also like how do I actually build both connections and friendships in a place that is known for being very cold? So I would say that Seattle's been practicing for the social distancing for Awhile I. It's not some ways where a little ahead of the curve on that. Now you did a recent interview with another podcast called designer designer a you were talking about your experiences working as a black designer working on designs often being the only one I can only imagine like one. You're coming to this new city where people may not be super hospitable. And then you're also working in a place where you're the only black person the only minority there like. What did that feel like in those first few months or so? When you're in Seattle? Did you feel like you had a community that you turn to honestly no like for my husband and I? We moved to Seattle without really knowing anyone and so for us. It was a very very isolating experience. And I also like to add insult to injury I was freelancing. My first came here is still trying to build up portfolio and find a job because we were able to move with his job but I was still looking for one and so it was absolutely blake. Isolating I go to networking events and there would be no one who looks like me there. I would go to open houses different design firms or anything else and it would be like I would be the only mean space and I mean that I would like to see that that changed a lot but throughout like the first time I got got barking at our production designer. To let the time that it's been an Amazon it was I had not worked with another design like black designer in that entire time. Wow and that was the impetus behind you starting black designers of Seattle. Yes in a lot of ways so as a designer I kind of like had always heard of the other. The white elusive block designer like somewhere in the company. Like there's always a another one you just didn't know them out there somewhere but then I ended up getting promoted to art director and then I started looking around and wait a second like where are the other art black art directors and like. No one really knew where they were into like. I did it all right. I was able to find one other black designer and like the entire company and so I think it's very to realize at that point that the thing that I was experiencing wasn't just my story but it was evidence of a larger of a larger trend and so from there before starting the group I actually had only known to black designers. One of them was my little brother and so like he barely and so after. I essentially disturbing to reach out to other black designers that I knew or could find technically like within the company. I was like all right. I think there's like a few of US 'cause I've heard about you but I'm actually going to like make the effort in reach out now and I just started doing that. On the larger linked in scale going through many pages of designers and Seattle being like the filter and trying to find other folks and other companies. See Up so glad you mentioned linked because people will often ask me how. I find people for revisions mass and. They're always surprised when I tell them. I look on Lincoln. First have some connections and look at their connections and try to sort of you know find who I think might be fit or who might be a good gas reach out to them. You know people sleep on Lincoln Avenue. Long since the activated Facebook I've been linked in. It's where I kind of that's where I sort of. Am Now these days in terms of social stuff? But how is the group going so far it is been insane? It's grown so much like I mentioned at first is just me? I had google sheet of all the different like BIOS. People are finding her black designers in the city. I just called him by black designers. Black Book and so essentially. It's been reaching out to people like you know what we used to have a happy hour so like you're in a quarter ago or so. I just reached out to thirty five people that I was able to find. It was like. Hey I'm BECCA WE'RE GONNA meet up like me that by this day this time this place and I was kind of expecting for it to only be mean like one other black designer that I had gotten to know over the course of me like finding people but then like twenty five ish people showed up and all of us were shocked like all of us. Were like wait. There is this many black designers and Seattle like period. Like what that was amazing. And then since then we're actually so we have a linked in group and I think we're around seventy five strong at this point Nice. Congratulations thank you. It's definitely been like a very kind of crazy. Exciting thing to actually start to find him build that community. Have you heard of the bay area black designers I have I have? I have actually been really bad. Not reached out too much to them by. It's definitely on my to do list doing all this extra time. So I know the woman who started cat. Voc She's been here on the show before and then also Kendall House who is I think he now heads up the group but he's also been on the show as well and just recently. I'd say maybe a few weeks ago. We HAD FROGS MORRIS. Who's a growth design lead at core? Sarah who also Kinda spoke really super passionately about kind of the Group. It how helpful it wasn't everything but I've also spoke to Seattle designers who honestly spoke super highly of you if you've just a few weeks ago we had Tim Allen on the show who VPN design and then Timothy Barker Levin's who's at Microsoft was like. Oh It'd be talking tobacco by guys so the work that you're doing is definitely be seen by. People be congratulated out there in the community. So that's great Spanish. Well okay. Findings are at Tim. He's actually now at facebook. He was in between that between Microsoft and facebook..

"Life balance is I found. Certainly as I've gotten older it's more and more important to be able to really have that split and that separation and it feels like now to go back you know. Unfortunately the talking about the corona virus everyone. I feel like everyone's work. Life balance is thrown off now. So it's a weird thing because it's now all in the same place and you don't really have a way to separate it. I've found a way to separate it but like I told you before we started recording. I've been working from home since two thousand eight so I kind of have a pretty good way of compartmentalizing it but then you just have all the added stress about everything that's happening outside of your home and you're like how do I focus. How do I try to concentrate on the task at hand? So yeah it's now I totally. I feel like yes right at home. You have Dirty dishes you have the laundry. That hasn't been folded in a week or at least do the animals and everything else. It's for my husband and I it's like all right. He was GONNA use the office for a meeting. And so if you're having meeting out there I'm having a meeting in here. How keeping the quiet. And it's a whole collection of stuff also. I've had it super hard because they'll get to five o'clock six o'clock Namik. Alright what am I going to close my computer? Because I'm not at work and I don't have to leave work on time to be able to hit the commute rate and get home. It's your home so I definitely have had to like for my own sanity. Just shut everything down but do not disturb on by slack so that after a certain time the evening. I'm just not getting those messages. Yeah that's the best way to do. Just shut it. All down and physically tried to go somewhere else. A different ways of different spot. That really does help out as long as you're in your home. Because they're still social distancing. Exactly so where did you grow up yes so? I actually grew up in two different places so my parents nonprofit that really focused on just community good and so I was born in California and spent like really the first nine years fully there but then I ended up going back and forth to Brazil for a month or two out of the year when I was nine and then when sixteen actually moved permanently there for the last two years of high school so I guess for me. My childhood was very much made up of two very different places very different cultures. Wow High School in Brazil. What was that like? Oh goodness it was very interesting so when I first moved down there I home schooled for the first year. Because it's very like a transitional year and so senior year. I went to a high school that my mom tot inform. Us really really interesting because my parents again. We're in the nonprofit space and so my whole life fair was working with kids in the slimes like my best friends. Were extreme kids like that was what I was used to. But then when my mom started working at the high school 'cause she's a teacher my sister and I went there for free and I think my graduating class was seventeen. People and those and those kids were essentially the richest kids of the area. Because I went to an American quote international or American School and so for me it was kind of also also felt like I was straddling two very different worlds when I went to school than when I went to like after school program. That would help with my parents in the evening so it is definitely very very interesting interesting experience when you graduated. High School. Did you move back to the states or did you stay in Brazil for a while so I pretty much went straight back to the states. I ended up going to DC for school so I was at American University for Undergrad where I studied film and Anthropology essentially wanted to. I wanted to find a way to tell a story but then I also wanted to tell it correctly know how to do the research in order to portray it the most unbiased way possible and so I did that double major so in DC for for that then stayed by year after I graduated. And that's when I eventually moved to Seattle now I'm sure about the the storytelling being you know someone that was going between two different countries growing up where you kind of exposed to a lot of art and design. That made you want to go into doing so. So it actually wasn't really. The art is just like the stories of the people who I met. I just fell in love with just hearing different people's stories and hearing the way that they saw the world. And so I think straddling those two very different socioeconomic made it so that I realized that the other one just had no idea how other one lived and I think especially in Brazil that stratification is so great and also exists like not only says economically but also racially. And so for me. I swam to kind of. Tell a story to demystify. Md other a whole kind of group of the population and so it was actually a project. I did my senior year in high school. Where in art class we had to do. A video project where we'd film we edit and do all this other stuff and so it was a group thing but I ask the teacher if I could just do. His solar projects and I ended up going and featuring one of essentially pipe sibling. At that point I'd met him the first year gone to Brazil. When I was nine he was ten or eleven and we basically been friends since then and he had been a street kid or live on streets from the time he was six to nine like by himself with other kids age and then he ended up at this this home for kids and so for me. I was like you know what I just really wanted to tell his story. Just really tell tell where. He came from the amazing kind of just trajectory. This amazing changes that he's actually his life. He started in the slums and living on the streets when he was so young but now he had been a part of like a college. Prep program like there was so much. I'm in so like it was such an amazing story so I took my really really crappy little point shoot camera and I wait night. Just interviewed him. I we went to the FA- Villa where he grew up and he brought us his mom's house and we met a siblings. He showed us where he actually lived in essentially in in front of a shock where he like flipped at night for the three years he was on the streets. He told stories over like he is kind of like a hard core looking kid. He is Nike Scar. It looks like a Nike Symbol on the side of his cheek. So he looks like it's Heerden so he looked like pretty hard core. And when you actually talk to you realize that no he only got that you know from falling tree when he was playing and the only thing he actually stole ever was like a Hershey Bar. He felt so guilty that he actually left money for them later on so as far as someone looking at him might think and really stereotype uncertain space but then the real story was just totally and completely different. That's one thing I just. I really really loved Actually showed it a little coffee house presentation thing with parents and staff when I was in high school in for me. I was terrified because I was really showing this group of the richest people in the city as essentially kind of throwing the socioeconomic differences racial like in their face. And but then like it showed I was like in like a coal but then afterwards people started coming up to me. How can we help? How can we do things for him and so it actually ended up helping him raise money for kind of like an English language like trip over the summer in the US and so it definitely was yeah huge impact even though it was really the worst meal like it was really bad? Video audio is terrible but the story really came forward in. I just saw the impact that Could have wow. That's quite a story. Do you contact with a good idea idea. Yes he's definitely one of those folks who just became very much like siblings and so now he's living in Brazil again him at a few others like it's been really great to see how they grew up and then our helping people who are in a similar situation and Celik another person who I knew around the same time all he has is really go to the streets and really trying to build relationships with other kids. Who Live on the street during the Fellas to essentially try and be a catalyst for change in their lives. Nice so.

"Kind of handling incoming from this very hyper collaborative environments now being distance in this way? How are they handling it? I think a lot of people are handling it pretty well. We have a massive amount of slack channels over random things. I think the other day. We're just like sending weird childhood photos to each other just to kind of to bring some of that community online. I in other ways. I think it's been really great to see the team. Give each other a lot of grace because other folks. I don't have kids but like people are at home with their young children. Like bilas very family oriented company. So we've had many a kid come into a cameo. Sometimes it was so happy and so it's been fun to almost each other in their home environments but even my husband. He's over at Amazon. His one of their senior leadership. Send out an email. That just said you know what guys will be fine. Let's just make sure that we give each other grace in this time because we know things might take longer because there's so much other stuff happening so let's just be patient with each other and just like get through it together. You definitely think that grace is needed for many of the reasons that you mentioned the you know going from working in an office to suddenly having to work from home and also not really being able to leave the house. That's a big drastic change for a lot of people that shakes up their routine. It affects the mentally. It affects just the output of were able to do so. It's good that the companies are empathetic enough to say we know. This is a tough situation. Were of not being completely hands off a certainly exhibiting some grayson sort of. What is a very stressful time? Totally yeah definitely been very very nice to feel like we have that type of support and understanding what sorts of projects are you working on zillow totally so I work in the growth in acquisition space for a product called zillow offers and they'll offers is essentially. It's only really available in a few different cities right now. But it's a new product zillow and it's a program where we'll actually buy houses from customers in that. Also sell them. And so the kind of goal like the overarching. Golden Zillow is to help. Movers get to where they want to be. And so it's like however we can make that process easier for them. Let's do it and so the whole premise of our program is that you don't have to do any home showings you. Don't have to do repairs. You can essentially just like pack up and leave and some of our customers have given like a lot of feedback where people who like some of them might have been in the military somewhere moving for a job and they just really needed to get the next place sooner and so by not having to go through that whole traditional selling process it removed all those different barriers for them and they were able to move faster. So that's essentially my product. They work on. Nice prior to Zillow. Don't you mentioned your husband? Working Amazon but you were there as well. I did so I was at Amazon for four years or writer on for years. I is a contractor the first few months and then I went in as Zainur then left as an art director. Funny thing my husband came in a few years after I did. And when he was interviewing I was like Hey Hun. Why does it say that your hiring managers on the same floor as me? And he's out. Don't worry I'll be on a different floor. And we ended up being on two very different teams but being on the same floor for six months. So also we're also pretty used to working in a similar space together. What's it like working at Zillow? In how is it different from Amazon? 'cause zillow's kind of more of a startup. I would imagine an Amazon is big corporate behemoths. I mean it's very different. The culture is even look at the leadership principles of the two companies like. They're very very different. And it's like it shows up like starkly for Amazon. It was a slight This huge huge huge company. And sometimes you may not feel like you have like full ownership over a certain products I guess scope is a big thing for for zillow offers. I essentially owned a whole section of the product. And so what? I decide what I really worked at helped to create just goes up. It is the entire thing versus a small piece of it. And then I think another thing is zillow. If you're talking about workplace thing zillow's much more pillow Nine to five so there is a great work balance. There has been listed on different. I don't know less. I guess as like a top place worked for families so like I was really weirded out that people left their computers on their desks and like went away for the evening. I felt times I did. I was like Oh like hide it in my little desk drawer and people were like no you just leave it like have that work life balance versus different times for Amazon. It was very dependent on the manager that you had the project you were working on so definitely hide a lot more creeping as far as your off time your that work.

"Organizer Becca Markham in Seattle Washington. Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are and what you do. I am beckoned Markham. I am a product designer at zillow currently and also the community organiser for the black designers of Seattle network. Nice talk to me about working at Zillow. Like what's a regular daylight for you? They're totally so it was a little bit more like different than what I like. The End Environment I've been before. It's like hyper hyper collaborative in a lot of ways. So whether I'm working with like straight up with another designer or if I'm really collaborating with my content strategists Danpilla partners. It's kind of like everyone's in the same space here in the same building. Same floor together. So it's kind of like walking around and and chatting with people but essentially let you know a day in of a designer at zillow is fantastic. View the water in Seattle. And then you know whether it's going to stand up or any of those other type meetings you grab project. He might have some design critic. David with partners leadership and honesty just released your Clobbered announcement pretty fun projects. I have to kind of couch this in our current reality of one recording this for people that are listening or recording this on March nineteenth and you mentioned at Zillow the view and it's hyper collaborative and you're working together. Seattle is or at least a couple of weeks. Ago was one of the big hot spots for causing you know pretty sure as other cities have taken suit with this now. They're forcing people to work from home to socially isolate themselves. What is the vibe like in the city right now? It's been pretty weird especially Although we do have people who work remotely. It's not really a remote culture and so it's been a complete change from seeing each other and being office like every day with each other to having to change everything into like an online experience so it's definitely been it's been crazy. The restaurants and bars in other places were closed down So they're only doing takeout right now for us we've been. I'm along with a lot of the other. Tech companies in the area like facebook and Amazon. We've all been working remotely for the last two two and a half weeks and so it's definitely been I think there's a level of distress that is definitely kind of permeating. Everyone like we're in such a lucky position to be able to work from home. But you know you have people who are small business owners here. You have people who can't work from home and almost like that collective worry for our community is definitely been present. How are you feeling with all this going on? I mean I feel that I was super lucky. Live a little bit outside the city so for me. I have a yard. I can go out escape without having to worry about social distancing. There's a bunch of stress again like you know over the small business owners and community for me. I am so addicted to coffee. And so I've made friends with a lot of the different like copy shops and restaurants in the area and the Baristas. And so you know just worrying about worrying about them and worrying about how this is going to affect not only individuals but then also the companies small companies economically for me. I was Kinda used to working remotely before in a prior job and so I had space ready to kind of flip the switch in that way. But it's definitely it's definitely taken a lot of or I'll say it's been it's definitely been a transition into trying to work remote with all the stresses that added onto it. How's the team.

This has thirty five thousand views into ars with. Thank you for letting me know. Peter was in a commercial. Oh Yeah it was me. Let me get both and listening to your insight on all the Bachelor Episode Natalie. Hey fame name name is a burden not worthy. It'd be carried but we're glad that you're carrying it for bit things in email Ashley. This has been a fun. PODCAST Is Here's how I wanNA close this. Okay okay what and I said at the beginning but I want to put a little emphasis on this. This season has not been that fun for for me. It's morph. It has been more fun than past bachelor seasons that I can like you know that I've been a part of. We've talked very openly about. It's been years since we've really been able to get into a bachelor season. We can necessarily figure out why this season kind of felt like that but this week and I get why there's this episode five was so big I can't wait for this next big up so to come out. This week was the first week. We're on the edge of my seat going. I cannot wait to watch more. Yeah I left me wanting more so much more that. I don't mind that we have another two hours this this week. Wednesday night there will be another episode of the Bachelor and we will be here right after the show. So you know eight o'clock It's it's eleven o'clock if you want to listen to and after the episode airs we will be here talking about it on Wednesday late night. It's going to be a late night. Actually one question. We haven't done yet this year and I think it's time to start doing it. We started with Colton about this week. And we're going to start with Peter about this week. A scale of Eight F. What are you reading Peter? As the bachelor this involves performance. This involves like ability involves handling of controversy diversey. This involves just swag everything as a bachelor when you look at him a death you gave him a B.. Plus a couple of weeks ago that was like two. I think he's a B because I think that he like has the potential of being in and he's like everything that a girl probably once but I just think it gets the way that he's like not realizing that so many of his moves create more drama. Yeah the one thing I give them a beyond and I don't think he can go much farther. Doesn't it being. This is why my opinion like he's always going to be like like we're always going to cheer for him. Unlike some pass batches have been like. Oh this is just annoying to watch him like this is just terrible. Like he's driving me up the wall he's like there's been no points this season that I've watched Peterman like I don't like that guy. Oh yeah there's like nothing unlikable about him. He's so likable. He's one hundred percent likable. Hey we'll stick with a beef right now. I have a feeling he'll go up our page. Ashley Your Great. We'll talk soon. We'll talk in like a day. Feels like two days after another three hour episode of the Bachelor with that. I've been I've been Ashley Guys. Wednesday tonight followed the Ben Ashley. I almost famous podcasts.

"You guys like him an emotional choose like I actually. I think the only two people who are actually like really in love with Peter McKenna and Kelsey at this probably Chelsea hasn't talked to them yet but she lets uh honest like when Tammy said like did you talk about me and Kelsey was honest. Kelsey said yes I brought up and I said that you said this. And in this. But that's all I said. And she was truthful when confronted about it and they don't love this part and team we're going to get into your podcasts here at the very end so stick with this here but I really want your honest feedback here. All this is fun and Games. This whole show is funny games. It can work. I think we all agree like this could possibly work. We know we have a successful relationships in the room from it but we have to be really careful on the show and I wish people would take responsibility when they get casted for questioning shooting. Somebody's character and saying something that could last him outside of the show. You're the show you know. Do your thing they get mad at each other argue. Whatever little tests little fights but the pill-popping part? I don't understand to me why this wasn't a bigger deal for everybody. Stop in the room and go timeout. Yeah this is the conversation in a serious conversation for us as we're just spouting it off were sitting at a cocktail party about somebody having a pill addiction that we're just gonNA pass over and argue about like. How did nobody step go timeout guys? This is a big deal like this could really hurt somebody for a long time and she doesn't have to disclose her adderall prescription when she was all that is really private information Yeah that was a really serious moment for me like I was watching this. I was saying this is all funny. I'm laughing up until this point and now somebody's back there going. Yeah I just said she had a pill addiction because I said I saw her taking some pills. It's so crazy you should have Z.. The drugstore that I have for but not for a motion stuff right ash. It's true this is sad and from somebody for me personally. Who have who has struggled with pills in their life at different points in times like that to me was like you gotta be like this is this is not funny anymore but then it gets funny again so then it gets out of it because then it kind of moves on into whatever else? They're arguing about and I do want to highlight. Everybody should go watch steps. Good again rewind it to this point you have three girls. I don't know their names at this point that are sitting eating on the couch. Like in the back with their eyes wide. Open just watching this go down and I know these moments and I would love for the people who've been on the show and just for you. They love the show to speak to this. Those moments were like everybody wonders how edited this is these are. The moments cannot be edited. This is useful. That was fun. It was it's so true and also it's like I don't know why people think it has to be so produced. It's like look. This season is a perfect example. Throw like twenty girls and Aram throwing some alcohol if it and like boom just stand back and let the fire letting the fire Blew out of control. Yeah absolutely so. Let's talk about the rose. Oh ceremonies of the cocktail party was cancelled which is the perfect time? PERFECT SCENARIO FOR A row. Sarah rose cocktail party to be cancelled. And Tammy can't so she interrupts and says can I talk to you. She says it from what we saw very inconsequential south right McKenna. Hannah interrupt and take note of it. I was like this is no sane. No she didn't say anything. Well what what I think is like what we said before we notice in the beginning is it seems like like You know on the first episode a lot of times about we'll just cut the people. They didn't talk to Mike. I didn't get a chance to talk to her so she's going home. Peter did the opposite where it's like. He actually kept all the girls who he didn't talk to and so it seems like now this time it seems like if he has any like feelings at all and he still feels so you need to test it out. He's going to give that person a chance. I think maybe that's what happened with. Tammy like you wanted to see her side of this. Because he sent Home Shannon and Lexi and it doesn't seem like he had he has an action with all all of that there's never been any mentionable moments for them. Yeah and I guess like he and Tammy have kind of had some fun moments that is probably where he was like. There's no hope there so just move on from them. That seems to be more of his Mo.. I also wonder too if Tan if at some point. He's he's smart enough to go. I'm so confused right now. Everything so chaotic attic. I'm not getting clearances from anybody. At least Tammy's like trying to like talk to me about stuff pretty. She's probably not the one for me. This is not getting any better better but at least she's trying to communicate with me whereas some of these other women are all even though only communication is bad mouthing other people that's not good either question for are you guys. Do you think that those conversations that he was pulled aside for did anything in changing his mind or do we think that that was the roster he was gonNA keep. I don't think it changed. It didn't either no. I'M GONNA agree that they were they were all is in like you said inconsequential conversations Asians. Yeah and really timely stain. Yeah I mean maybe there longer. Maybe they did come across as being very short but I think he kind of already had his mind made up. Sure I bet there are really short. You think how awkward this is. He sitting like fifteen feet away from the women and they're standing up there for God knows how long at this point they're all little anxious and ready to get out of there like he's probably GonNa keep those really really really short. Hey team. I'M GONNA go around around the circle here. We'll start with jess and in with Ashley thought so far on the season we'll keep the shore and concise thoughts in the season thoughts on this last episode in where did take a break and we'll come come back and talk all about chatty broads with Becca and Joe suggest talking this season thoughts in this episode. I think this season is a hot mess but I love it and I do really really love Peter. I think he's a really genuine guy and I feel for him. Because I feel like it's going to just keep getting messier. Who's your perfect favorites right now? I mean I thought I did but at this point. People who weren't my favorites are starting to emerge like Hannah and got. I just hoped McKenna gets a one on one next week. Give the girl Rollo one-on-one give the girl You know I love hate this season because I think it's crazy but it's also also sometimes like this episode is really infuriating for me to watch I kinda like triggering when I was watching something like Tammy was doing. Some gas lighting Sydney was doing this whole deflecting thing and it was just frustrating. I wanted to be there and be like on a C.. You know you need to be held accountable own up to it. Like there's kind of thing is just really grinding. My gears and frustrated me. There's been a lot of injustice this season that's really bothered me tapping says the deal. Even if you're speaking injustice I felt like a Laya did. She's already gone. And then now I just feel like there is injustice with women stain that I don't think should be staying who are being consistently instantly re rewarded for behavior. That is bad. Yeah and yeah. So that's frustrating. And then I think I think that maybe I'm kind of wondering I'm like what if Hannah and takes it all the way. I don't know and I see Madison being the Bachelorette we are actually totally unspoilt Mattison Madison. Now we don't really know much about comeback around all the dramas gone in like top six. But then I then again I don't know because with all these super teases looking super super crazy like at the very end it seems maybe it's like one of the bad girls goes all the way I do but I can't wait to see. My opinion is that it's been a really good season from viewers perspective. Because it's been so dramatic but I also don't think that Peter is going to find and his wife in this bunch and if he does I think it might be it would be Mattie because yeah because that's like I feel like he's been blinded by a lot of of beauty a lot of sexuality I don't know how deep getting some of these girls or he's being ya think he's getting a little blinded by out of all the bachelors to have to deal with this. I do feel bad I ability to really think he just wants his wife. I know I really I know I know he wants his Mrs Weber. I I know he wants Mrs Weber and before this whole thing started did I knew he wanted that and I do think that's why I think he's starting to catch up with it but I really do think he walked. In this season naive he had a fairy to fairy tale tail like perspective of what this could be like. He wanted. Everybody have such a good time that he thought I was going to get along and that changed quickly but hey it is is the bachelor listeners. We're gonNA take a break. We come back chatty. broads is a podcast. We've gotTA talk about with two of our very special Guests who just broke down the whole episode with us. Thank you for that. We'll come back with BECCA and jess here in just a second so over the past three years my family and I have adopted.

"We're definitely much beers. It's a day that Cosmo Day is definitely finally like I would be. Oh God cosmo's trying to rebrand to. They're like we're all about empowering women that's our mission. I'm like really because I think it's just like seventeen. Seventeen ways to suck his you-know-what no causes and yes. I do right for Cosmo so I I do have to defend them though. Because did I feel like COSMO has changed a lot over the past couple of here to the fact that I even like I'm like where are those sex tips like the I need them now. We're on and forum and now and now it's all about like doing great in your career and moving ahead and beating the darning. I'm like like I need the other stuff as well pleased that I have questions. Okay so yeah they take pictures. It's just it's it's much stub substance to it like. There's not much to talk about except for the fact that it was a big deal about Victoria kissing him which was going to say. Stick on this. Just I'm with you. I feel like I feel like this. Date was very unbranded to the dynamic. That's been going on. Let's make it a competition about what girl gets to be on the cover of cosmopolitan that's vicious Asia. That's the only group day competition I've ever truly wanted to win. I don't care if it's football or like core you don't want the twenty thousand dollars revolve clothing. Actually that was that was bad. They here's the thing though. I had one rule really like I needed a lot of things wrong. During my time in the bachelor I do tell anybody. This is a good rule to keep. If you're going to lead at one rule that I stuck to don't kiss any contestants in front of the other contestants effort it doesn't matter what the scenario never do that. He's oblivious to the drama that he's inciting between the women really like not aware of it and and he was kissing the favorites like of course it's going to spark issues like I don't know how you do that didn't that we did it. Didn't I think because he's been doing it so often they're like l.. Is Part of the competition. Guess so normally it would be like Oh. I accidentally walked by that room while they were having their one on one time they were kissing. But nothing like on a podium. Like except for like you know Karen Nick. Yeah that kind of thing that was like sort of on brand and so later the cocktail hour. I loved Natasha. Natasha kill it. She's just so funny because she's she's always just basically we like F- Peter. I think anytime we're in Peter. I've had a conversation. It's her confronting him. I don't think it's ever been conversation not involving having a confrontation like talking about other people during that time but sometimes I just say sometimes sometimes it's like you don't know what the Heck House talk about because you don't have any two friends outside of this thing you'd have no commonalities allergies like in front of you. You're not like a regular date where you can be like. This beer is good Like have you watched that show like on the TV. Like there's a whole bunch into things. Don't come up naturally and every you know how you're like I know this is random but like on the show everything is rent every conversation you contact out of. You've been air. That's so interesting I hadn't thought about that. Yeah I'd fully spill all the teeth ensure somebody we can talk about how we both now I would almost keep her around to just for accountability. I almost feel like at this point. He's like I don't think he liked me that much. Whatever reason you've stuck around around here because it gives me a better person this is ending only better for you if you stick around a little while so let's make it work at this day? County Kelsey says that she's falling in love with him and Hannah and gets the group date rose he really feels like she's been giving a hundred percent so funny because we couldn't couldn't stand Hannah Anthony. This is fine now. She's pretty much. The only one that I have neutral to positive feelings about I would say my most neutral a feeling. Yes yes. That's a really don't just bypass that we will for the sake of this podcast for time but just mark that in your history of your life and remember that a season goes on that at one point you said the only one. I'm concerned I appreciate and here. He is sleep one hundred percent all right so then there's more Kelsey step but we will. That's where the hell Kelsey emotional Unstability comes in but we'll we'll address that when she goes to have her one on one time with me upset so the next day is Kelly's Day and I again of love. Kelly do because she is like so to me real. She's just knocking to Giggle at things. That aren't funny. He's also not that into him. She's not that she wasn't they first met. That's for sure I think that's why she's been kind. I don't like spiraling like when she got the one on one date. She's like. Oh shoot like Oh. Yeah Omar Awkward. Even when he asked her to accept the Rose I feel like she would have been okay if he said that I actually not going to give it to you. He's over it. I think she's been like all. These girls are fighting over this guy. And she's like yeah he's cute and he's very very sweet but I and I think that Peter is a smart art guy. And he's a great conversationalist and I'm not saying anything about his intelligence whatsoever but I think that he she probably does want somebody who will be like a little bit more cerebral well and he's naive like you said yeah. She's not yeah like she wants to talk about law and politics and stuff like that and I don't know if that's what he may want to talk about that but in demonstration of how as and when he talks about what the other girls. It doesn't like it hasn't come across to her. Probably like he does because his conversations with the other girls are are so classic bachelor from what we're seeing. It's like I'm feeling great about us. Are you feeling good about us. Oh I really like the way like we're doing and like you're showing me like a beautiful heart and soul. I mean that's why I love watching their day because it was like. Oh this is an actual coversation. We aren't going back and forth about our opinions and Sorry go ahead then. Well I was just going to say let's Tubas you search it a thought here. I WanNa just preface was with understand where he's coming from yes. I don't love the fact that she told him she's out mature she is you. Will you all listen so sky diving. Yes yes that drove up the wall and I think it really made me injury. But she's coming from because we just kind of skipped over which was good that we did. We had to bring it back that we're talking about this. There's a context here were Tammy. And everybody's arguing arguing right in. These girls are watching this. Some girls are giggling. Some girls like their popcorn in our watching other girls are like witnessing from afar. This gets wild hold fast as Kelly sits there within it as somebody that probably is a little more mature is pretty smart like really smart and is going. This is crazy. I don't it fit in here Yeah yeah she definitely doesn't fit in their non ago she's coming from when she does bring up like I'm not I don't see myself being like any of these other girls so lake a future together. You want right nine. Maybe it's problematic if someone says at their more mature if they're not but which seems so clearly more mature like you're saying demonstrating that she's never getting involved in any of the drama. We haven't seen her involved in any of it. Yeah and I'm sure she feels like on an overwhelming basis more mature. I would never say I I would also feel. I hope I haven't said that about myself. I would feel uncomfortable saying about that myself. Like very mature age have set it on your way when I say that I'm like Oh Jeez as you were the one isn't it crazy is being attacked for it. So that's different. Isn't it crazy. How at twenty three or twenty two or twenty two? You were the young now the average age. That's the thing so I'm I'm sitting here watching it and I'm like Oh I feel so mature for my twenty five twenty six and this is just such. It's just dumb just all dumb Talk Talk just sucks. So many of them sucked season. I'm sorry like they really screwed over Pete with this crop a women I really think so. They're really pretty. I mean that's what every time somebody says that like I get the response like they're really pretty. That's what I get from guys. I'm finding myself so much less like attracted to that I. I thought that they were so physically attractive. And I'm finding them so much less physically attractive as I'm watching this stuff play. I can understand. Find them as pretty as they did. At the beginning in understanding Colton had a lot of young women but it wasn't the same kind of drama or the level of it or the pettiness. We've talked about it many times in the podcast. Just how as we get to know the contestants. Ah I everybody's beautiful once you get to know more their stories start to show and you start to have your favorites. Here's the thing and we'll get into it in a second right now now. Favorites are plenty on this season. We come back. We're going to summarize the ending of the episode. That's definitely wild wild and crazy. We're also GONNA talk favorites. I have a question for these three that I think might help us understand Peter a little bit better blessed break.

"Thirty. It actually l let you take it from here but I do want to say this first story makes me very sad so sad. We Love Joe and handle. I loved hanging out together. Joe Is such a cool guy like jared. This was able to relate to the fact that he could like he he hated La and that all he wanted to do was be back east. I mean Chicago Rhode Island West. What I mean the other side of the country so join Kendall broke up and I don't I don't know if it's been clear but I th- I'm pretty sure? The main reason for the breakup was that she never felt like she was going to want to leave. La She was born and raised here in her family is all still hear. Her identical twin sister lives here and they are unbelievably close and so she didn't want to move and then Joe was so unhappy here that he couldn't he didn't want to spend much longer here. Let alone the rest of his life. So this is one of those reason this is this is one of those like distance truly not distance but like location really broke up the relationship from the information that I I mean I get it. I've been it before like I've had past relationships. That one person wants to live somewhere else and you can't figure it out. Neither side is is necessarily like compromising compromising when you do tighter. Compromise doesn't feel any better. It's tough But we love Jo and Kendall and win both individually the best as they move forward. Ford I really do feel like Ville remained good friends because it was distancing or it was a location thing so Our next piece of news is that Jordan. Kimball you guys remember Kimball. The male model is footsteps following Jerry Footsteps and and it will be one of chippendales newest celebrity guests hosts jared this last year it was only one show. I'm not sure Jordan's doing much much more. But you guys Jordan or not if you are in Cincinnati go see chippendales because it is a hilariously. Inner -taining show we were there with J Tanner Nick and our agent and the guys had so much fun. So it's it's kind of like a parody and it's very enjoyable show Jordan will probably make it better if you're a bachelor fan so check about. Hey really really big article. That it came out about Ben Higgins yes it says who set up Hannah Brown with from Bachelor nation. This is from cheat sheet this. It's funny funny article to read because they had a no go. Hey who should handle brown date from Batra nations so I started going through all the single people. There isn't a lot of single men in in Bashar nation. Right now that would even be able to stand up with Hannah Brown. But I said Shum booth I think Nick Vile will obviously would be somebody. Think Knicks down to date Hannah. Why he has a little? He doesn't he doesn't WANNA data. Well I'll tell you that day. Well I don't know Sean booth does either. And that's the thing is like I said I haven't talked to Sean about this. I was just an interview. They threw it at me. I started just spouting out names. I was just with Derek Path and wells the night before this eric e. he was on our podcast. People seem to love him maybe him but other than that Ashley was there anybody. I've missed now. Derek definitely is probably the best single option. Shen I like the idea of Sean but again long distances relationship there. I don't know how that's GonNa Really Forum. And if you guys WANNA listen listen you guys think if you want to know more about you know Knicks feelings towards Hannah you can listen to his podcast. He isn't like settling dirt or anything but I just don't think that they'd be compatible. I don't think he's interested the so Derek pay is obviously out there. He's a good one. I didn't Miss Anybody Right. Mom No I think I think looking like all the guys kind of taken. Yeah Wile Wow. We're all getting so old so much love going around you know people are we're GONNA be like I can't believe you guys didn't accomplish so I know well that's good. Let us know a little bit me. She can she should go back to my Johnson gives that a world. Yeah you could try. That out goes. Hey also there's a picture of Peter's MOMS that is blowing up the airways. His his mom is saying bring her back back. Who could this possibly be Ashley early in the season? We thought this was Hannah. Be Right I I'm I'm thinking that the Hannity show up again. This is referencing some other woman and I still feel like if it's not Hannah it's Mattie and I think that's that's what I said week one in a stick to it you're going to stick to it. Well Hey it is fun to see how much involvement you know. Peter's family has had so far this season. I always loved the family side of things so I think it brings a reality a it makes us feel more involved the whole story his his parents. Obviously don't don't mind either. They've gone on podcast and they willingly go on the show and Gas Oh hit what pass. They did. they did a podcast warner brothers. Serve Ed the happy hour podcast. They obviously enjoying this sort of my parents. They were involved in the whole process and it made it better for me. I think Peter's mom is passionately Ashley. Passionately still speaking about Hannah Brown. He's passionate just. I still think so. I think I think you're just trying trying to make this a good story. Actually actually. It's not what I'm doing okay. I really think Brown comes back. I will stick to it until we watched this thing. I really I just get a sense based on press based on interviews based on what we talked to people about. I get get a sense that this season even though it feels dramatic now gets even more dramatic later. I think it's a happy ending. I think there's love but I think it gets really really really dramatic can only I can only think that Hannah Brown would add that drama. I don't know how these women get any more dramatic than they already are. Well they're doing a pretty good job on their own. So fantastic Dan. You know we our next guest. You've had a little drama with I. Think thank or with you so BECA Martinez Little Becker. Young Becca from Ari season will be on with us next to break on the episode. I I love that. She's here. I love how blatantly honest in real and raw she is. She's always been one of my favorites but apparently has had some beef with my co host. So you guys can address that when she comes on we are going to take a break and then Welcome BECCA and her podcast. Co Host Jess us.

Hiring is challenging. But there's one place you can go where hiring is simple fast and smart and growing business connect to qualified candidates cafe alter Toro's Coo Dylan. Mika wits experienced how challenging hiring can be after unsuccessfully searching for a director of coffee for his organic coffee. I get this coffee obvious. Easy competition top.

"bekah" Discussed on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast

"Telling you what we're pumped up jacked up. Ready to talk about everything Bachelor Ashley Ashley. Yeah this is getting insane. Some people hate this season. Some people love it. Everybody's on edge. Are you ready to break it down as I am I. I'm really into this. Episode was good for being three hours and me being like wow. I got a tackle three hours after the Super Bowl. I enjoyed pretty much every minute of it. It's weird just be. We're not going to break it down right now. We're GONNA get into later. We have a special guest today. Becca Martinez and her co host Just Umbro's are coming on the podcast today to talk everything bachelor in their podcast so in a second welcome them in. But before we do Ashley I I wanted to make a statement and see if you agree or disagree okay. The season has not been bad categorize as bad. I like Peter. He is a nice guy. It wasn't until this episode that I was I feel hooked. I could've cared less first couple weeks to watch or not. Now I cannot wait to the next one comes out. Okay so I guess like I'm less interested in who he ends up with this season but I am always latched onto the drama interesting interesting. Well here's a little bit. We have some really passionate folks in studio today. Our producer Tori has just blown up the his passion speech on how much she hates this. SEASON'S WE'RE GONNA bring her on a really eight. I don't enjoy it really. I don't think any girl is like I'm great. I'm like China picture every time once the episode ends like okay. Who would I wanNA see have be like the next step as like the Bachelorette? I can't pick one one okay. So every girl comes with a caveat I kind of agree with that That blogger girl kit McKenna is. They're giving her a big storyline and right now. I'm so sad I want him to see how amazing I am. So I'm like maybe it might be her 'cause it's a very self deprecating but I just can't with you guys know that like I couldn't in stand McKenna for a while this this episode. Maybe it'd be like okay fine. I like her while I don't WanNa say like like but I I can watch her now guys can watch. We don't see things the same way when she goes. I want him to see how great I am. I put my hand to my face and I'm like what are you talking about. Why are you trying initiative? How great you are? Why don't you just show them who you are if he thinks your great? Then you've you word things so beautifully that most time really liked McKenna is when she goes I just so so tired. I really relate to that one time I was like okay. Magana this episode. Because she was like I the.
