Basecamp Bans Societal and Political Discussions at Work

"The startup base camp is well known intact circles. It makes product management and communication software for business teams. It developed the ruby on rails software development framework. It's quite influential in silicon valley but last week it got a lot of unexpected attention nationwide when it announced its employees would no longer be allowed to have quote societal and political discussions on the company's internal base camp account leaders at the companies said. The conversations had become too much of a distraction from work. The move sparked a ton of conversation base camp and beyond and it's indicative of a broader debate happening in silicon valley for more on this we turn to our tech reporter catherine bentley. Hey thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. So tell us about the reaction. We saw base camps announcement. Here are both inside the company and publicly yeah I mean this was all over twitter. Oliver lincoln effectively. What you had was kind of two camps if people you had people who said you know i some people especially underrepresented groups. They can't always sort of divorce politics from their identity. For example i saw someone tweet Someone who's non binary. Say if i introduce myself with my preferred pronouns at a work meeting some people might view that as a political move but to me. This is part of my identity. So there's this overlap between diversity and inclusion and quote politics and so you had some people really taking issue with this and thinking that it was that such a ban was effectively away to silence uncomfortable conversations about diversity and inclusion as opposed to quote political debates on the flip side. you had people One example would be the ceo of coin based brian armstrong saying he thought it was a courageous move and point base actually made a similar move this past fall and people who are sort of on the other side of this debate. Say that you know work should be about work that this has become a distraction that you know. It's it's just become too much of a focus in office culture and that people shouldn't be bringing their political opinions into the

"Rhythm to recorder recorders really about breath. Control isn't it. I mean they're so sensitive with breath that that that's a that's always what i've thought about with recorder that it's like this. Incredibly refined sense of breath. Isn't it really very kind of week. Breath like a soft night elegant soft controlled breath right But it's also fun you can just really distort instruments when you scream into it or really but So i spent the whole day just recording some intervals and rhythmical devos on the recorder and then listened back to it later and i was like okay. This is cool but this is like so simple. The you to not under a quarter has nothing to do with star wars. This stores like one of the most harmonic louis. An interesting complicated. The film scores. So everything i felt like i was writing was just bad and simple so i started writing a tune on the piano and then basically a started going on for the instrument. The instrument piano guitar drums. There's almost like solving a puzzle. And i created this five minutes song which is basically the the theme song for the mandatory now and then. I went back to that flute thing. I've done and i was like what can i do this. And i just put the as an intro to this composition and as an intro. It worked out great because it was it was really made. It drew my attention to the song immediately. Because i hadn't it was textures and sounds that i wasn't fully of used to last question. I'll try and formulate here. I want to ask you for our audience in these pivotal moments in your artistic career. What are some of the things that you think. Put you in the right place for success. You know is it. Says staying focused on your goals you know is it. Is it surrounding yourself with good people. Is it dumb luck. Is it right place right time. I'd love your thoughts on on what goes into these kind of breakouts opportunities creatively these. I don't know where where to start. I mean a to Like i feel like. I've been fortunate enough to be able to surround me in myself would with people that constantly challenged myself and also feeling like everything on doing like the next round going from the next step to the to the next goal is it always feels like it's it gets more difficult and in some ways it should get more difficult but you should also be able to still collect more things on a journey would will which will help the travels. Get more easier if you want to jump in their doors the actual interesting answer to that question jason for me and it's dot the same as i think everyone would say but for me. A career has been an unusual trajectory. It's been very very hard fought. i didn't have. I didn't go to school. i didn't have connections. I didn't have money. I didn't have any of that stuff. I had kids early. So it's been really really a tough fight And that's the truth but it's been marked by saying no. Those are the most the most important moments of my career have been those moments. When i've said no and what i mean by that is. It's this constant refining of the thing. You for me the thing i want most and i think what happens in a creative landscape is very often your presented with with some kind of you know tantalizing shine shiny objects that for me. I've had to say no to and in order to really make sure i'm doing the thing that is not the easiest thing but the thing i most want so like. I began in documentary for instance. I was offered the chance to do more documentaries. But it wasn't really what i wanted to do. I wanted to you know. Start writing. And so i said no and i just kept doing that over and over again. When i found that i wasn't i was constantly checking in with. What is that thing. I want most. And what's that thing that scariest and feels most alive and making sure you're not just signing on and i for me that's been kind of the road that's led me to at least doing the work that is feeling like it's really alive for me.

"Which recently made the oscar shortlist for best score. Hey ludwik how are you. Hey i'm really good. Thanks for having a beer. Yeah thank you for joining. And i have to ask you ludvig. Where do you keep all your trophies at this point. Oh there's so many of them. So i just to had to get any place with the trophies so family there on house their own house. I believe you just picked up an emmy for the mandalorian. Music chu yeah. it's Actually there at my studio now. I think just got that one they took a. I think it took a little longer to make it because of the pandemic well Guess who beats tenet for sound design at the annual satellite awards recently odier sound of metal. Oh dear oh dear when. I didn't realize you can't win them. All goeransson didn't realize we were. We were gonna hit that kind of head to head you know podcast. Eh may kind of situation to be fairly big. You're you're not a sound designer. Strictly speaking and also. I've never heard of the satellite awards and also alluded probably despised sound designers because crowd. Out your music right. These are often competing elements music and sound effects. Yeah but i think. I realized pretty quickly that if you can join hands and be together you're more you get a more powerful product darius on one level. I think the macro your film sounded metal is about our relationship to sound and to hearing and i thought it was interesting that you're sound designer is credited for both sound design and as a co composer of the music with your brother. Tell us about using sound as storytelling tool in this film. Well i mean that goes back for a long time. But actually as it relates to the question of having my sound designer also composing along with my brother abraham. That's very much on purpose. Because you know it's interesting that you said that jason about the two disciplines competing and you know much of my philosophy and filmmaking is to make sure that that's happening between departments. I think that sound design and music has to speak to each other. I think they have to be working hand in hand in order to be really working and the same goes for sound and picture and so a lot of that was about really doing it in tandem with sound design. I mean this was an absurd. Hardly rich sound design process in this film but the scoring was very much a part of as a matter of fact in this film scoring and sound designer kind of the same there. Integrally linked and and the whole concept was to not really always know where one began the other one ended. I'm just interested in those creative decisions because the sound design really gives people a powerful sense of what hearing loss sounds like How frightening it is for the protagonist ruben. And i wonder what kind of research shoe did to approximate that to make it authentic in the process. You know what were some of those creative decisions life. well they. They began twelve years ago. And really i've been working on that. Sound design star going way back to too many men over a decade ago and so that research started to actually as this project began with a documentary. That was kind of chronicling. The life of this band juice for who's made up of a drummer and a singers. A two person band much like the band and sound of metal allowed loud noise band. Like loud doesn't even begin to describe how loud they are. And so that working on that dock all those years ago which i was doing with my friend. Erick see in france That i started playing with this notion of what. I'm calling point of hearing all all the way back then. I started playing with us and in a pretty low fi way but as i was writing the script i was doing more and more research on kind of what that what that means what it means to lose your hearing that that that deafness is not silence at all that it's a lot of different frequencies depending on where you land on the spectrum because there's many many different experiences being deaf and then of course you have this this kind of third act in this film. Which is this this almost frankenstein sound and that involved. A lot of researchers well the the the actual research into What what the sound of coq leary. Implants are and deafness and there's just no silence anywhere in there it's this rich tapestry of sound. I feel like authenticity is very important. Part of this film. You know from the opening sequence which was especially powerful will inserted into a world that many of us can relate to. I know i can Edgy and loud rock concert. I mean i know that place. And i know these people so i'm involved. Also that concern and fear for losing your hearing israel to me my background as a dj and playing festivals and underground parties and clubs and everything. I know that concern. It's real. I think there's a nuance in your film. Making that allows the audience to color in the the blanks with their own experiences. And i think it's because of that. Authenticity the decisions that you've made the creative choices you've made with sound with pacing with casting. I think it gives you more room as a storyteller and the film really resonates. with kind of naturalism. That is is really special. It's such a nice thing to say jason. Really because the word naturalism and authenticity or really the highest bar for me and this film is a is a you know. I think it's deceiving in. Its naturalism in a certain sense. Because it's bringing an audience into a first person perspective which is a very unusual thing. It's a it's an unusual thing in a movie to be really in the shoes of one person for the whole movie and as such it. It's a very rigorous language but that concept of of it feeling real and authentic in visceral was kind of it was in every moment of the kind of prepping the movie and making it. And just like you say that scene. Which i've also spent some time and you know in a club in we. You know we know the smell of it. We know the sound of it. We know the feeling of it so that was a real club and that was a live show. And that's that's the bar that we set with like rizzo med. Which is an olivia's that you guys are gonna play a real show with a real audience so you better earn it you know and that that is really because if that's the way you're starting the film and you don't if you don't feel the the authenticity of that you know the whole films off to the wrong start so that's kind of the whole methodology. There's really appreciate that if i jeopardy and a little bit on what you were talking about their general jason like being being. Dj talking about you know the fear of losing your hearing. I mean i can. I can definitely relate to this like as soon as i saw the trailer for sound of metal and understood what it's about i was like i mean i i. It looked incredible. I was like okay. I need to see.

"The spacing between words the punctuation the blank blank pages all seem to have a purpose and i wonder when did you start looking at writing in a different way you know beyond the conventional With words as pliable. When did that kind of change for you. That's a good question. I guess i always was interested in writing i. I started writing as a child and making also in a. I studied it in college and was writing. Sort of more Trying to trying to really work on sort of like a more traditional short story form in trying to learn that and i was not happy with it and sort of started trying to figure out other models that i could use an. I think that you know a few years. After that i started reading some different writers and and started realizing a different like the different forms. That that i could use it was sort of this process of like writing. These sort of traditional stories then gradually kind of starting to strip everything away from the stories that i was working on until i mean until i almost got to like nothing until i almost got to silence and then building it starting to build it back up again into a form that felt like it was my own and the form that was my own was a form that was interested in. Yeah every every word how words are are relating to each other how they're acting on each other and the spaces. Yeah everything. Would you describe yourself as a minimalist writer. I don't i don't really know i. I don't really use terms. I guess very often. I think that that is a term that some people would probably use of my writing or that. Some people use for other writing that i admire but i'm not sure because in my mind my stories are my work doesn't really feel minimal and i think that i feel like what i'm trying to do is get a maximum amount of impact end detail and information and emotion into a small package as possible or have a maximum effect with the minimal substance. I guess and casey. I wonder how that applies to the world to come this idea of getting the most out of restraints. Or how does minimalism translate to film. Well there's a lot of ways to be minimalist and movies. I guess like performance emmy people will use that word to describe movies in different ways. I felt like your character. Dire opens up ever so slowly and softens over the duration of the film. And i wonder if we could see. That measured reveal as as minimalism. May just be a matter of getting to know somebody when you meet somebody in real life. You don't have a whole sense of who they are. You just have have almost no sense of who they are you meet them and shake their hand and start to talk. The same is true for character and movie. It's just that in movies so often. They try to sort of project the whole picture of a person into that into fewer moments than ordinarily you you in one's experiences if somebody else so i guess if you just sort of taking like naturalist approach to performance or when you're editing than you You're you're revealing the character over time as you would realize says you get to know dire you get to know more about him as you get to see him. In different circumstances in the movie But also about nine fog that it doesn't feel minimum wants to me. Although it is sort of short stories you know the dominant animal. There's these teeny tiny shorts stories. Or whatever but i think your intent as you described your intention. Catherine felt. That was how i received as experienced reading of those and When i think about always nine fog. I think that if feels like i almost said this was the diary of women's whole life and then when you said oh it was diary from sixty eight to seventy two or whenever i remember that it was just a tiny period our life. But you won't have a whole life in there. I mean in thinking back on it. Although i remember sitting down and reading it in like ten minutes of floor that bookstore. I also have this impression of being this like massive epoch of a woman's entire life. And just and i think that's the magic of it. Is that somehow by like these little entries about the weather and the errands in the little things that are happening in like something. Incredible happens or you get the sense of a whole not only her whole life but like your own experience of time passing and and you know the days unfolding and people arriving and leaving and people dying and she says like then he slipped away or whatever. The description of of the son-in-law dying was just something as off handed and beautiful is like an any any slept or something. Like that. And i know that jim shepherd has said that the inspiration for his short story. The the world wasn't diary entry that he found of a woman in the nineteenth century and it was just. My friend is moved to a. I don't know that i'll ever see her again. And that was it. And he thought however when he goes to write. The diary entries of this person has lead character. She has. This is amazingly like Articulate expressive as a great vocabulary. She writes in a really colorful evocative beautiful way. So it's not. I wouldn't say that it's minimalist incredibly expressive and like she uses language in this really cool ornate sort of period specific way. But then. because it's a movie. They're able to do something. I had another layer. Which is that in real life. She's really sort of shut down that she's shy and she President really know how to talk to her husband. She doesn't how to talk to this woman who she has. All this feelings come up for who lives in the neighboring farm. And so as the movie progresses us sense of like this huge in our life that Inside of her and how it is contrasted with this how she is on the surface which is like her husband can't really get anything out of her. A doesn't understand her and she doesn't feel like she can communicate all things that she wants to to this other woman and if you if august nine fog were to be made into a movie that would be an interesting like nother layer of what. What was this person like when she wasn't just writing privately for herself. I didn't think that was a really interesting way that the story changed to the movie it. It really felt the story really. Feels like she is the a very articulate person who's very aware enabled to express yourself but Yeah in the movie she.

Casey affleck who has to film projects our friend in which he plays journalist matt teague opposite johnson who plays matt's wife nicole teague also is actor and producer of the world to come about a passionate affair between two women in the unforgiving an isolated american frontier of the nineteenth century. Hi casey thanks for joining us on the back story. Thanks for having me calling me a luminary. We also welcome catherine's scanlon author of ogg nine fog based on a stranger's diary catherine found at an estate sale and illinois years ago. She carefully reworked and reimagined the time warner journal into a unique portrait of life. More recently the dominant animal. Her debut collection of short fiction was named a best book of two thousand twenty by the guardian southwest review and publishers. Weekly hello catherine. Hello thank you for having me. So casey i i want to recognize that While i don't believe you to have met before today you asked catherine to join us. Are you a fan of her work. Why did she come to mind. Yeah fan of her work catherine fan of york and I was. I knew that was coming on the show to talk a little bit about movie. The world to come and there's a little bit of history there that involves august nine fog so thought that catherine be an interesting person to talk to. I also just had questions that. I wanted to ask her about that book. And i thought i could use the opportunity to do that. I was in cambridge massachusetts on august. Ninth where i spend the summers with my kids go home to where he grew up in their grandmother and hang out and one of our favorite places to go is the Harvard coop bookstore in harvard square in cambridge and It's a great bookstore and the kids are downstairs. Kid section and i was sort of browsing and it was august night and i saw that book i saw your book catherine and i thought i just picked it up just because of the date and maybe had been displayed. Because it's so good or maybe it was being displayed for that day because it was obviously And i sat. And i just read the whole thing there on the floor and i loved it so much but i was also in a couple weeks. I was about to go to romania to start work on the world to come. Which is in a movie is based on a jim shepherd. Short story is the least script more than ended up in the movie. There was a lot of diary entries by the lead character played by katherine waterston. Who's a woman living on farm in upstate. New york in the nineteen th century in the middle of the nineteenth century. And it just reminded me of what i was. You know as. I'm getting ready to do a movie. I'm thinking about it all all day long sort of and and then i cracked open your book and it was like it would knew what i was thinking about speaking to me and so i bought a couple and i gave them. I gave one to catherine. I want to director or maybe just to to actress katherine morrison and she loved it. I gave it to the first day. Matter and i said i love this so much. I think it'll just help in thinking about the character and everyone who i've passed it around to really likes as well so you know when when i thought about having a conversation about the movie you got with first person came to mind thank you. That's yeah that's really cool to hear katherine. Tell us about your creative process with augmented fog. Maybe starting with finding this artifact it's condition and what really what was it about it that possessed you well. I found it and i was living with my parents at the time. It was kind of between when i was finishing college in and getting ready to move to chicago and and go to graduate school. In a i lived with my parents for a few months. And they're anti dealers and so it was a lot of just running around with them and going to auctions and state sales and they have a lot of things in their house. That are really interesting to me. When i found the diary it it was kind of in this box of garbage and there is just something about it. That really seemed like it was worth keeping. Even though i didn't read it. At first i just liked it as an object today for a long time. I thought about what i wanted to do with it. Because i i always wanted to do something with it in a i thought about making something visual with it like Photographing the pages or sort of like the pages in an framing large grid of them or something or a series of grids of them and nothing like that ever really felt like the right thing to do and then eventually i started to read it. I'm not really sure why. I started to read it. But i started to read it and then started working with it as text after that and then then spent about. Yeah ten years kind of playing with it did you. Did you decide to fictionalized parts of it because there were things that were illegible or just holes in it or because you wanted to it to be kind of like just a blend of fiction and found object. So what's in the book is. Maybe like i mean. It's a very very small fraction of of what is in the original diary You know maybe like one percent or something. So it's a. I feel like the the way that it's a. Fiction is in the selection and the the narrative construction and the omissions. Nothing you didn't you didn't write anything in your own makeup anything. I didn't make anything of my own. It's all from the diary. But i edited some of the sentences slightly and i put them together in the way that they're put together It's it's not like a chronological as far as you know referring to the original document It's very mixed up. It's and the narrative that i sort of made. I mean you know. There's not really like a a neat or a natural narrative to life so that was something that got the got constructed in the books construction boom of like the son. Her son writer son in law comes into the story and get sick and then died. That was that sort of moved around. Or is that how it was in the diaries in the original dairy that fell about in the middle so the diary of his nineteen sixty eight to nineteen seventy-two in that the death of her son in law happened. I think in around nineteen seventy and and then. Actually you know the later. The later years like the one and seventy two were the parts of the diary that were mostly illegible after them sort of like continuing to her sort of continuing to live after after that happened to them but a lot of that i can read. It ended up being muscles like the first three years the diary for those who aren't familiar with your work. It seems to me that every detail is intentional. The structure.

"Just a couple of matches on this thursday southampton beating wolves score of to nothing and chelsea one winners away to barnsley. Tammy the goal in the sixty third minute. Chaka his lobster robson frank. Leboeuf join us for more frank. Start with you very impressive from chelsea. Would you not very impressive. But the most important thing is to go through When you play against so-called lower team or smaller team boss well default how the way they had to the field. Remind me The the way we used to play the ethica many years ago or to kind of two decades ago it was a wasn't pleasant game to watch but for chelsea the main thing is to go through indeed. Because of graham. One neil off you go home and you think about the quarterfinal. That's the only thing we can say. Jaakko what was worse chelsea through the first hour of the match. The pitch pitchers kind of paul for the costs from from bucknell d. That was decent pitch. But not i understand the issues that pitch like that might read And similarly bentley just made it difficult for chelsea. They will predictable i. I didn't see them scoring other on. I kept mystique trust the job done. That's that's the only important thing interesting. raba what did you think the match There are plenty of chances for barnes. The thought shock watches different game. Well a couple of chances but chelsea made it really difficult for themselves. Everybody was talking about bounds. They've done the homework bounds leader. We're going to press her out the field they we're gonna make it difficult. They were going to put their from. Plays and stop josie planet from the back. So what did chelsea duplat from the back on a bubbly bitch kept on giving it away midfield and they made it difficult for themselves. It was crying out. The big diagnosed replayed from the center hav into the white when the wing backs will play chuck took made the right decision to half times. Change the system so they got more space for their full the play bulls forward but bosley will holding such a high lime pressing so high the field. It had to be the case that josie when in behind them and they didn't do that until it was too late but they just about eight dumb bravo. it's four straight wins now for chelsea undertook. Oh can you see some signs of progress. Not today i couldn't but in in the league games they have been a slight improvement. I think he knows what he wants. From these teams play with a back three for those three games. I think he knows exactly what he wants. Midfield he's wingback high up the field as well the area where we sort changed. It is whether it's play with mainstream ensues slot in behind him or two strikes wanting behind but you can see what he's trying to do. I think the players know exactly what he's trying to do. Each system the players today almost eleven of them so it was always going to be difficult. But i can see system coming into play. I think the players understand that system. And i think chelsea will get

"bentley " Discussed on The Backstory with Jason Bentley

"Decisions at the Last known ask you about it. It's it's a big one so we'll just try and manage this topic. I saw a news headline this week. Just maybe four or five days ago. Washington post it read saudi troll campaign. Is targeting a movie about the murder of jamal kashogi. This is the exact thing that you examined in the film which is a coordinated attempt to suppress information by the saudi government and it speaks to a bigger issue of our times. Which is the question of truth in in that. Same technology that it has. The potential to liberate can also be a powerful tool of suppression and This is a battle being waged on the internet and i. I just wonder if you anticipated that this would be such a big part of the film from the outset. And the conversation around the film that it would not only magnify the injustice of this specific crime but also kind of dove tail with a discussion in the wake of our last presidential administration around truth and the fundamental integrity of our institutions yet. Literally today on Getting receiving messages from omar that the bees and and saudi activists have been getting a hashtag. Trending free lujan. She's the saudi women's human rights activists receipt so much fresher So much attention royally sits in a prison and the saudi and were able to change that hashtag somehow. They figured out algorithms within twitter to hockey again and their hashtag are trending and this is literally going on today. I mean literally literally today the they removed the trending jane hunger-strike and hunger-strike replaced so they somehow removed they. Somehow we're able to change the hashtag getting onto twitter so they they actually know how to hack it and here. They changed another hashtag. That was the number one Hashtag which was don't kill. Jane rely shane. Now the hashtag is don't chill and this is real and that washington post story is real. I mean it's not art imitating life. It is real mean this is. This is a government that will stop at nothing to try to push their message forward. And they've figured out that manipulating social media and in this case basically hacking twitter is a way to basically suppress freedom of speech. And so Yes they'd been trolling An attacking the film. But you know they are doing that across the board with saudi human rights activists or anybody trying to speak truth to power in the kingdom. Because i think what they see is the threat of another arab spring. Where if they can't control the social media. They can't control twitter right then. They lose control the narrative and where we see all revolution where we see all change come. Generally it starts in this in our generation now on twitter and whether it was the bill movement whether it's metoo movement or protests around the world. They usually take shape on twitter. And so if you can't control that The saudis i think view themselves at risk of a revolution and that is what they are trying so hard to control and prevent and the use of petroleum. Social media is their way of doing speaking with filmmaker. Brian fogel about his film. The dissident which is available now of video on demand. I found it pretty easily through amazon. Prime myself Brian i wanna thank you for your your work. Your your courage and convictions. Speaking truth to power as a storyteller and we can't wait to see what you do next.

"bentley " Discussed on The Backstory with Jason Bentley

"We were. When we were literally negotiating with the department of justice we were literally trying to find an attorney to defend him. We were receiving intelligence. Perhaps that russia was trying to kill him. We were you know bringing the story to the new york times just in the nicot time before the justice department was going to arrest him believing that you know that that he was a person of interest i mean there was it was really high stakes and so what you see iniquitous. I a once in a lifetime. Kind of going down a rabbit hole and who could have ever imagined in the beginning of that was going to be on the On the other side of it. With dissident i mean clearly i set out from the beginning going okay. I'm gonna make movie bombs this murder but there are so many revelations that happen and a lot of that had to do with just going on this journey meaning as as i'm working with omar. I mean he's literally receiving death threats on his on his phone. There's a scene in the film where as we're filming with him. He gets information that you know. His nineteen year. Old brother is not only imprisoned. That have been tortured lost. Its t six months into working on the film. I'm being contacted on. Not say by who. That jeff bezos had been hacked with pegasus. Basically offering you know me this information but into the film while we're filming with the teach in london we're hearing that they're saudi agents that are monitoring us and a monitoring earth while we're at the united nations and at tj goes to speak the to saudi representative stand up and walk out as our cameras. They're shooting so there are so many things like that that happened. Getting the transcript from the turks took a year and by the time the turks gave us the transcript. It was like a couple of weeks ahead sundance so the film at sundance versus the film that is available on the od. Now there was a lot of changes because we were continuing to gather and did another six seven works seven months of work. Ho sunday's certainly. I think in the crafting of the films. They're very similar that they are cinema rollers. They're designed with the sound. The score of adam peters just brilliant composer going to skywalker and having dude sound design to make it feel like the bourne identity. The way that they were shot using a lot of. There're a lot of drones a lot of big big. You know kind of overview shots and then both films. We lean heavily on graphics motion graphics even more so in the dissident using a lot of like really high level. Cgi you know some really intricate graphic sequences and so in that capacity films are similar. But i kind of got realization acres was never going to happen again. So you know thinking that. I was gonna find myself in something like that wasn't going to happen. But the dissident check all these boxes of the story that i was wanting to tell and specifically on cinematic -ly that from the outset. I saw the film as a thriller and me and my creative team saw away to craft it as a full. I know that a big of this story is the difficulty that you had finding a distributor for the film despite an enthusiastic reception at its sundance premiere. And and especially for an oscar. Winning filmmaker Seems unusual looking back on the year. Is there anything about now going. The independent roots that has been positive that maybe helped to preserve the fighting spirit of this film. And you know if perhaps there's an upside to that. Nothing beats having a huge amplifier in and the resources to reach audience of a major distributor. But in retrospect it has it. Has it been good at all. Going the way that it's gone very spent a lot of problems the first is we put the film out on the od january so it's available for rental in the us and canada. We have some really great international distributors line altitude in the uk madman and australia. Belga in the benelux region Amazing distributor in france nonstop scandinavia. I mean like really top cheer independent distributors briar cliff. Tom wartenberg You know runs. Road is our distributor in the us convertible handling the great distributors and in the vod release. We literally have been number one Documentary we hit three under three on i tunes and we've been told that it's been the most successful the od released for a documentary. Ever the film apparently is really don ten times. What expectations were so. That's very positive you know will be seen by the two hundred million subscribers that one of the major streamers have That i was told that you know. Accurate said seven hundred million views. Not likely but on the other hand. I think in crime the film is gonna find its way and it is being seen and that you know so much of the story around the film which is also founded of has been shining right that you know that these companies didn't take some and i think that that helps in the long game of of the human rights story keeping a spotlight on the business interests at stake from these major corporations to take the take the streamers out of just you know what goldman sachs of the world all the way down that go. Hey we're going to do business with kingdom. Despite the fact that we know that somebody like luzon all fula sitting in a prison jail for believing in women's rights in the country our financial interests are are more important than our human rights. And i think for that. It's been a very positive story. And so i see a lot of good coming from that. I see a of good coming from you know as the film releases internationally when we get on the other side of covert i mean covert i think has been the biggest negative way outstripping. You know of a global distributor. I i think that kovin the biggest variable that has stood in the release you know we have an incredible partner in turkey for example the planning to put it on eight hundred screens and there are holding so you know hopefully time people will find their way to the film on standard zeitgeist and see a lot of positives to it when i certainly don't feel any remorse for the.

"The world. The backstory unpack people's unique journeys and creative dna. We discuss current projects points of view but also how they got to this moment in time and what are some unique insights and life lessons that they can share in this episode. I'm joined by academy award winning. Filmmaker brian fogel. Brian's work uncovering vast russian doping scheme in the film icarus one him an oscar for best documentary and prompted a global reckoning in the international sportsworld that still resonates to this day. It's also worth mentioning. That it was very entertaining. Not just an expose it captivated audiences and had us on the edge of our seeds ryan now summons his storytelling skills for the dissident. A film about the murder of washington post journalist. Jamal kashogi a reformist critic of saudi arabia's ruling elite who was ambushed and killed at the saudi embassy and istanbul in october of two thousand eighteen. Hello brian welcome to the back story. Thank you so much jason. Good too good to be talking to you. Thank you so. I remember i reading about about jamal khashoggi disappearance in the noosa as it happened. The shifting story lines each day. The gruesome details emerging and the the the feeble excuses for his disappearance by saudi officials. And it was something that really touched a nerve for me. It wasn't something in the abstract like a lot of news. Items can be probably for me because he was trying to get a marriage license a going to the consulate and i myself got married that very same month so it was a detail that really personalized the story for me. But tell us where you were in your life and your head space when that story broke and what drew you to it You know coming through what was an extraordinary but also very stressful process leading up to the economy of words in march of twenty scene. You know i was. I was really looking for what my next project was In having went through mid experience vigorous where to this day. There are still repercussions that have happened. As a result of that their own dr gregory retain life is still under protection. This guy Who really hasn't spent much time Out of isolation In the last four years you know the the re banning of russia's they would have been likely dan a summer games channel. Ovid you know was really a direct result of gregory's whistleblowing but also the film icarus and all of that kind of foot but felt like a heavy burden on me to continue to hell stories that i felt could have change in the world that could have an impact that could create better lives for people or shine lights and other corners darkness and as the murder of jamal. Khashoggi unfolded on the global stage. And you know those first two weeks of tober twenty eighteen. My ears perked up. I mean here. Was this horrendous crime. I mean shocking. Crime concept of journalists washington post journalists walking into his own country's consulate to seek papers to marry his fiancee to be brutally murdered. A cut into pieces was so horrific. And when. I started reading about jamal to learn that this guy was a you know a moderate. He was a thinking That his country could and should be better. He was supporting The saudi monarchy and mohammed bin salman. But also going. Hey you know in order to be a good leader you need to have human rights. You need to look out for people of your country. People need to be allowing opinion other than yours and not be persecuted or prosecuted or putting jails or be headed for having a thaw and and this desire to speak truth to power led him into self exile led him into writing for the washington post and the concept that somebody could be murder so horrifically for doing that wall all of these business ties to kingdom wall. You know. There had been zero accountability or sanctions or really meaningful accents to this day. Two years on against this brutal crime and regime certainly made me want to see what i could do to tell the story and craft the film and it hinged on essentially access and could i gain access that was not being reported in the news That was otherwise unknown to hopefully craft what i viewed as the untold story behind murder of jamal and the ongoing. You know Repercussions from that murder. Was there a turning points as you addressed this and made the decision to pursue this as a filmmaker a storyteller. Was there some piece in this puzzle when once you found it you you knew okay. We really we really can do this there. There there there was you know It was really three three variables. One was would teasha jenkins. Jamal fiance participate in the film. Would she provide me with exclusive access evidence for photographs her audio with jamal and allow me to follow her on. And that was three months trust-building beginning in november on my first trip to assemble and until her agreeing to allow me to start filming with on the beginning of february twenty nineteen. The second was murad. Bilas because omar The young saw dissident in south exile living in montreal. I saw the protagonist of the story. That i saw jamal's protege. I saw you know a a reason why we would hear about the work that jamal was doing. And an atidza There was the emotional connection to love story. But an omar was the protagonist of of you know the ongoing human rights and What was going on kingdom when obama was a similar situation of months of trust building into where he finally allowed us to. You know work with him. And work with him exclusively. And that's why so much of what's in the film you know. People have not seen occurred before this full-back started his rendition and saudis becoming him. Like they came for jamal. How difficult was it to gain their trust. In this process. You mentioned it was just the initially a cold call reaching out to these people and you know these are really essential parts of the story because they like we said at the beginning. They're part of humanizing. This story and being able to identify and personalizing the story is having their involvement. So how difficult was it to get their trust. Under the circumstances of what was going on their lives at the time being hounded by news media organizations around the world and also you know truly. Was you know. Ptsd this was you know i can. I cannot fathom what afisha changes has one through what she went through what she goes on a personal level concept. That the man that you're going to marry and spend the live your life with not only what you'd never see him again You are the brutality of murdered so shopping and And with no markle's a similar thing you know his brothers in prison friends in prison members of his family for cher's 'em what was you know what is in.

My therapist tells me to feel my fields whatever emotions. I'm feeling at the time. Allow yourself to feel them. But i don't think those feelings are meant for someone else to feel especially of how you feel may cause someone else pain won't peered. Morgan didn't think about that this weekend.

Morgan put he meaning lion. King married eight times so mother-in-law expert but he was a brilliant broadcaster and masterful tv interview. Now here's the thing. Do i think it was in poor taste. Yes do i think the timing of it was yes. Even if i felt that way about a person would i share it. Not right after they died. Okay maybe later some years later. When i'm telling my story in a book documentary and that part of my life comes up. I may tell that story but the tweet it right. After a person dies it is extremely tone-deaf like read the room peers. Okay folks are mourning grieving. Think about the family friends and folks who loved larry.

In way we're interested in the work that undercover officers do when the pressure that that brings and then potentially the danger that that brings with that kind of work and with that in mind. We decided to bring operation. Julie to the podcast. Both of us had read a book called undercover operation jubilee. The inside story and that was really fascinating book written by one officer who was involved in operation julie and his name's steven bentley. So we sort of conducted some research around. That didn't wait. What we found was that there was a detective inspector. Dick lee in thames valley drug squad and he was putting together his sort of annual report. That a ba- late nineteen seventy four and he realized that there was some kind of anomaly in the his undercover officers. Were very active in the pop festival scene and regularly they were being offered amounts of ls stay and considerable amounts of lsd.

Mateo Cruz, Bentley University: Acute Stereotype-Threatening Cues

"On the academic minute matteo cruise assistant professor of management explorers. Acute stereotype threat cues at the workplace. Consider the following scenario. It is your first day on. The job is a female math professor in route. Your first faculty meeting a senior male colleague approaches you with a printed agenda and kirtley instructs make twenty copies and bring them to the meeting. Researchers characterized scenario as an acute stereotype threatening q. Although the interaction is brief it can heightened anxiety and deeply executive resources needed for optimal performance. Much is known about how individuals respond to acute stereotype threat in laboratory settings yet far less about how people contend with stereotype threat on an ongoing basis. Our work led by dr karen block at columbia university examines. How women in stem navigate careers infused with systemic stereotype threat. A chronic form of stereotype threat. That exists in work environments that a spouse meritocracy but implicitly signal racial or gender disparities are a result of group deficiencies not institutional factors while there are many cognitive and behavioral strategies. Women engaged mitigate threat the strategies they choose cluster into three distinct response patterns each patterns influenced by women's perception of threat and her goals for managing a threatened identity. There's no one right way to respond. Each pattern has associated costs and benefits in an era with no shortage of advice about how women should navigate mainly dominated careers too often. Women are treated as a monolith however we know that not only do women respond to systemic stereotype threat differently but their responses are influenced by both individual factors and the organizational context where they work thus for stamina ventures to be effective. We need less focus on fixing the woman and more on fixing systems

"He's never gonna stop because has grown up. Do for a living weren't real jobs. There's an idea in seoul that i want to unpack quickly and thank you for your generosity with your time today. This has been excellent conversation. So as you mentioned. Joe gardner. Our hero is stuck in. This place called the great before and as he tries to make sense of this place. This great distribution center and how to get back to his body. He comes across the zone. This is the space between the physical and spiritual worlds and in the zone. He meets a group swashbuckling. Astral travelers called the mystics without borders. They show him these floating apparitions of people who are in the zone and we can all identify with that athletes and actors and musicians. I really knows that place when you catch a flow and you're feeling and you're not thinking you're just doing so he also points out in this space. Lost souls who are like monster like beasts right and lost souls are not that different from the floating apparitions in the zone. The zone is enjoyable but win. That joy becomes an obsession when becomes disconnected from life. Yes so and it's the mystics reporters. It's their mission to help. The lost souls let go of their anxieties. Obsessions can if you can help. Understand this distinction. And i'm just curious what inspired this idea in the film and it's one of several things in the film that you you really have to pay close attention if you if you just watch this movie in one sitting you know you you've got to go back you have to go back and really see it again once or twice more just to really understand some of these ideas that your imparting right well i mean the idea of the lost soul we all. I mean what i love about the concept is you know i've been guilty of it. Sometimes our passion the things that we love lift us up but they can also be something we high behind that drag us down you know that. Allow us to disconnect from our loved ones that allow us to disconnect from life itself and the idea of the zone was displaced where everything living on earth is manifested psychically in this in this out in the zone in the in the astral plane. And i you know what i love about. The idea of being lost is that you can at some point in our lives. All of us might be lost for a while. So that was the whole point of it is not just that like being in the zone is transcended you can also be a lost soul but oh being a lost soul doesn't mean you're doomed you can be lost in. You can then be found again and come back out of it and in really. The difference is a minimal difference. It's a very subtle. It's a very nuanced difference. I remember there was a point in the development of the film where we almost prep the entire zone out of the move where it.

Let terrence i want to ask you about fire. Shut up in my bones. This is your opera. Premiering next season at the med new york. Had you been thinking about writing an opera and what what was it bound. Charles blows memoir. That made you think you know this is it's I've been a fan of charles blows reading as an op. ed writer for the new york times. I mean he someone who especially over. The past handful years has been willing to speak truth. Power and His his writing is exceptional but Are you friends with charles blow. And why was it this memoir now. I wasn't friends with him. But i like you. I was a big fan of his writing. And when you asked me if i was thinking about an opera new that started. Because years ago there was a guy in saint louis named gene dobbs bradford who ran this club at the time and saint louis and our planet gig man and we were just having conversations and i told him that. My father was in auburn. He remembered that and then years later opera theater saint louis was thinking about doing the jazz opera for kids and then wanted to find a composer in jean. Put my name in the hat. And when they started to see what we were doing then they said well. Let's make this a main stage opera. That was my first opera champion. And then paul cream. Oh from the med had. Come to see champion and then when we did fire shut up my bones. They had come to see and asked me to produce it at the met. But the reason why. I did Charles book is because my wife had read the book and she had brought it to my attention and think that the brilliant mind that we see now has gone through all of these trials and tribulations and have come through in such a way. That's like a shining testament to his character. How could i not do the story about that. You know as a matter of fact one of the best things that happened was when we started doing the opera. I wouldn't let him his. See anything you know. You got a little frustrated man. I didn't know he didn't get anything. No music nothing you know. I said i want you experience for the first time when you come to premier premiere man and of course. I'm just like nervous as hell on my. Why didn't i showed his something. You know what. I mean But the beautiful thing about it was. I walked up to him. I said good. He said yeah. Yeah we're good we're good. He said the best thing for him about seeing the operas. It made him realize he's not that person any and it's.

"A great movie out there now that it's the holidays called soul and its stars my friend care jamie foxx who plays a guy who definitely has sold has the fight to recognize it in some way and it's a also history-making jamie in your the first black actor who's fronting of pixar animated movie possibilities to pressure on to that is definitely. I got the whole black race back and i'm karen and baby but it's it's great great to have things like this man. It's great. I mean you think about what we've gone through this past year you know Humanity needs a shot in the arm of of sold goodness and happiness and smiles and a reminder that we live in a place especially in america that is is You know full of freedoms that in other places of the world we just don't have and so you know to be able to have something like this to be able to be an african american black man who's done in the first pixar film. We welcome it. I mean when i first got to l. a. In living color. You know. I didn't even know i didn't even know. Did black. people can run their own thing because when he was on living color. Weedon question it. We're just doing. It was the hottest you know how to show out there. And we will blazing these trails with the winds and everything like that and then going on from there to jamie foxx show was you know definitely Created by a black man. Myself and bentley kyle evans and so it's just a natural progression so this is one of the pixar is doing this and i accept that honor and honor. Yeh but it is. You don't want to screw up to you know you can't 'cause i got to be able to go back to the you after you got one chance you blew a jamie with with your kids. Were they kind of thrilled. That you in a pixar movie. Are you kidding me. Both of my daughters says daddy finally made it especially. My youngest is like dad. You you really really like you you in a pixar film because you know my youngest daughter. She didn't get a chance to witness all of the things that i'd done twenty five thirty years ago so for her. This is a big big big thing and so It was fun to be able to take them up to pixar. You know be able to To see the place and feel the spirit of this incredible company in these great minds and pete doctrine camping. Those guys. so it's been great. You will when you when you're doing that. Everybody thinks what a great thing. It probably takes a couple of hours for me to do the voice of this character and it takes forever. Doesn't oh man noah it's tougher than anything because you know i've always relied on my physicality Facial expressions will do a facial expressions first day. They were like Cut a jamie. We're not gonna see you. We need the voice. Oh okay la but they did record some of it. You know maybe You know the spirit of my my my movement you know was in the character but it was really a tough task. Wasn't something that they you just go in and in because it's pixar so it's elevated it's not like There's a brand. There's there's there's a there's a level there's a bar says so It was hard work

"But you just did that resonates with me very deeply. I mean the movie that. I shot before Started the second season of umbrella academy. Which was this code. Not a film that you reference is called after yang and it's exactly that it's exactly a story where i play a an asian american robot but that is not what it is. It's not an asian american story per se. It's a story about a family. The happens to feature this Asian american robot in this asian american daughter and. I don't know how much i can speak about it because come on. Does i like this. Why i can see. I think that it's based on this beautiful short story called app saying goodbye gang. And it's essentially that short story Is available if you'd like to read it is about. This family has grappling with this robot of there's at slowly start to deteriorate and break down and The film takes a lot of creative license. And it's not the exact sort of same adaptation of that but in at its core it is still that and is a story about this family but You know you also talked about coconut. his previous film columbus. And what i loved about that film is that john show is a korean-american person. Living in that in those sets of circumstances and yet that's not what the thing is about it subtly imbued with what he does and how. He lives his life because he's asian american. You know that's how we all live We have a sign on our you know Shirts that say that we're asian american. It's just how we navigate our lives because that's who we are and it's quarter wire identity. And i think similarly we. We're going to be able to see that with this film as well. Why also loves it. He's chinese-american right. And and there's not. This is my big thing. I don't you know we're already limited quote unquote casting wise in one way. And now i think the business or people are getting confused about what we can and can't play. I can't tell your korean. Your skin is beautiful Who but that i. I can't tell people always think. I'm you know japanese anytime. I've gone to a japanese restaurants. People are surprised that i'm not japanese. I i agree one hundred percent and look. I do think that there are some exceptions. Obviously like i think. Lawn is a very chinese story. Were you able to audition for it because not everybody was not. Everybody was Chinese ri- right right. But i guess what i'm saying is i think there are some stories where having someone may be. Who's from that country who can speak that language. If the role requires a sort of fluency in that language would be important Not to say that. Like either you. And i couldn't necessarily learn another but a new speak korean. I do i do but yes For the vast majority of things. I think it is a bit unfair when it seems like actors are are getting a lot of criticism for for playing for a korean person thing. Chinese news person playing a japanese person. You know when in fact like australians americans americans flavor you know british people english people. So yeah. I agree like in the sopranos. They didn't check to make sure every single person had italian background. It's it's so infuriating. Well if anybody gives you grief. I'm sticking up for you. Thank you thank you.

"Consider creating a more substantial role for this character. And so it's it's interesting because though race didn't play a conversation initially into that character it almost inextricably inextricably became tied to that conversation. Simply because i'm asian american and simply because historically we've been these peripheral characters so it. It came out very odd interesting intersection of events. Where there was this sort of cry for more representation And then there was this massive show which had his character that happened to be asian american. That was a personal character. And it's sort of led to The response that it. It's so. I'm i couldn't be more thankful and yet i think about if it didn't happen at that time what would have happened to this character. The story so was the character written asian. No no he wasn't he wasn't and i loved it. He didn't stay the shy retiring. I love that your characters you know kind of snarky. It goes against type. It's great right right. Absolutely and yeah. So it's it's been a roller coaster. And obviously i had a lot more to do in the second season and even more so in a potential third With with the cliffhanger that we end off with at the end of this season so I i just couldn't be more thankful To the response and and to the fans who continued to ask for more of this character. Well that's that's really what i find interesting. Is that fans online. And you know back to how we even started this conversation of coming to terms with the power and the potential of of connecting online. It seems like an audience. Globally by popular demand has helped shape. Your assent in this in this role in on this show. And that's that's pretty remarkable. Yeah i think it speaks to like the globalization of the media industry. I mean we're not just making movies and tv shows for the us market anymore. You know the biggest markets are now in latin america and in asia. Particularly when we're talking. About streamers like netflix so diversity is not just a little thing that we can check off the box anymore. It actually has real market value because most of netflix's audience comes from outside of the united states. Now and i think that's really powerful. And i think the international effects have domestic effects as well. I mean what about you. Roslyn i mean. Do you think you've you've seen a shift in terms of the types of roles that you're being offered or what kinds of roles and things of that sort. I'm just seeing more of us in the landscape. You know i mean there's now the possibility of creating your own content which is also i think propelling some people forward as well and we are starting to get more as an american People behind the scenes. And i think that's helping. I'm so excited to see your film with. I don't want to miss pronounce his name. But the director khotan kobe. Nada code madder because i saw columbus. And it's wonderful. My friend kept telling me you've got to see it. You gotta stay at so. I finally sought not that long ago. And then i heard he was doing this and i'm just i can't wait to see it but yes so we are. You know i think. Also i think sometimes just the more we work. The more people are familiar with you as a human being. So they think about you when they're casting something versus sing role and seeing that the character has blonde hair and blue eyes. Think oh wait. I worked with his great kid blah blah blah. You know so. I think the more we work it just fuels itself. That's actually a perfect segue to what you guys are doing next. I'd love to to know more about your your forthcoming projects. Justin much more curious about your projects. Yeah i got caught. I mean i do have one. The one that i'm supposed to start shooting any time now and then I have another one that is it should be. I don't know when it's coming out. I should probably find out but and it is going to be a net flix film. It's already we already filmed it. But i don't know what the release is or anything. I'm so not up on all that stuff. The business end of the business is not my strength. Admit are there. Are there specific things that you look for now because of your extensive career and resume. How do you. how do you go about choosing projects. Now i'm just curious. You know what i feel like yet because here are some things that now i i might not love doing but before so much of it had to do with my schedule. My kids how fast it was going to be would be in town. It was all practical. And now it's about growth and to be honest you know what for me. I feel it's better the older i get because when i was younger i was getting the same roll over and over again and i used to always say. I just don't want to have to kiss anybody in this thing and another bathing suit saying i mean i was really. I hated the kind of roles. I was doing before whereas now it's you know it's more fun. I'm having much more fun now than before. So i i mean i i think it's not necessarily the size of the role. It's a do this recurring on better things. She wrote this character as not the most fun sister-in-law to have and to me that was that's a delight to be able to play something that doesn't say asian in big capital letters necessarily. I'm just. I'm a human being and not necessarily likable either. And that's fine too. I'm loving not likeable..

"bentley " Discussed on Queer as Fact

"Okay. We don't have any record of her claiming to be married to this columnist before this article, but obviously she was. Record from her but he's a bit tree at Dot said that he was married to her and his victory is the month before this article. So that is mentioned of the two of them being married before decided comes out but there's also a denial from him. She or someone else must have just been generally claiming that. or any of these obituaries or anything happened like obviously, he can't claim that they weren't married off to his Bichir has been published. Yes spa whether he actually did say they want married he was previously married to another woman before these claims and I couldn't really find cle- information about whether it will how that marriage had ended. So it's possible that this article that says J. Gibson denied that for being married to Gladys Bentley. Influenced by paps this other woman who was married to JD Gibson and didn't want gladys to be connected to him. I. Don't know I just. It's one thing to make up dawn. Sends a real human bus. Yeah. So we're up to three counts three. Thank weddings. It's interesting because like when you say he had just died, it makes it seem like she was capitalizing that death potentially but obviously not because she'd or ready been saying that before he died the Oscar also does not reference the fact that he's dead. Sorry, that's fire. In the article it's accompanied by kind of domestic fighter graphs upheld like cooking food and making a bad and the captain's alike, gladys makes the bed for her husband jt and like the oncle does not acknowledge that you're. A man okeydokey Jj does not appear in the. Correct data is just mentioned in the article and there's photos of gladys domestic setting, and I don't even know if those fighters take in a house or in a different stage location, they look very staged. This is getting into court board. What role is him being dead plan this. So obviously, the story existed before he died probably it's mentioned his a bit trees on Yes At least on that. Like I'm wondering if this story was around but now she's like well, I mean it's not going to say anything I can run all like what? They have to consider the possibility that they were married but yeah, I mean maybe they were married likely and she is very weird that the ebony article doesn't mention that he's dead even with like an editor at the start being like sadly, gladys husband pause away off to the writing of this article nothing. Yeah that is weird. But like I've that contributes towards being true or false no, that's just another confusing I mean I think that can be put down just to lie laziness like editorial. Yeah. I was GonNa say also just editorial timelines in terms of. Like getting magazines printed. Yeah. That's true. That's actually are and. Raise the question of I. Guess She was under the impression that he was like alive when the article was being written on these photographs will be taken avidly on that show time line. Yes. So then if it's a lie and she thinks he's alive and like do we know how he died expected from memory? I think he was raising the young and it was like a hottest half only young young but. He wasn't like eight seventy or eighty. Okay. Sir. She writes his article and takes a bunch of stage photos about her married life with this man who is around potentially married to another woman and definitely going to continue living and then he dies I'm suggesting she. I'm genuinely not I realized that that very much. Suggesting kill did what are you doing? I'm not. I'm just saying that like she didn't really we advise like if we assume that was did not know that JD gives them was about to die when this was reading either gladys and J. T. with genuinely married, and we can assume that for example, members of his family off previous wife or something like that decided, they didn't want that to be part of his public image and Death Addison jt when never married and gladys faked a wedding to a real living human who could easily deny that or he would have said like all right I'll go on this with you if they will friends humming. Puts his family, was. Like. That's true. That's always yeah. If. There's any reason for the general public at the time to view this suspicion or is there. Suspicion will the thing of her being straight and I to these men I don't think. Like, she was nine to be a lesbian but I don't think that people would have immediately what she was lying. If she said all I was a lesbian but then I married a man like there's actually quite a few come out in response. This ebony ought co from other queer people who say things like I've had this experience I was a lesbian I'm married to a man now I know exactly what you've been through at like that kind of thing. Happened, the lesbians went on married men whether by choice. Oh, by social pressure, this wasn't an unrealistic story. Except for those specific detail, make it very suspicious. Yeah. Told me to talk in factually place and the same month. The article was published really off to the article was published. Gladys did marry a man named Charles Roberts this marriage really occur we have photos together actually happened they lost butts cash one factual marriage three potentially fictional ones correct. I just want to keep track yes we'll anymore marriages. scheduled. Okay. I don't know how to feel about. Why. I mean I guess we do have like next to fashion about most of gladys's life. Yeah. Yeah we do. We can't be like lack of evidence is damning nar the whole thing with is bizarre yet baffling. I really thought when we got into this article, it will be much more about lioness emotional and mental state around declaring shields and queer anymore, and it says it's become this cope. is she making things? So okay. Yeah. Moving on from that nonsense I do have a few more things that I want to say about this odd. So as I mentioned Ebony listed this article as a self help article and Gladys concludes with the hype that quite if I can steal some unknown youths tempted by the law something different from succumbing to the snare and instead turned the path of righteousness business I would feel some redemption from my sins. However Gladys still speaks about herself in present tense as equipped present in the article entry also speaks very sympathetically about the que- community she likes that. Is, Legion and our heartbreak his inconceivable very few people can understand us. We wins at the many suggestions of what should be done to rid the world of the AB normalcy to which we clean. So obviously, we can speculate about Gladys's migrations in writing this article, but I think even within the article, we can kind of see this conflict between declaring Quinonez as seen the thing. She's left behind the thing that she really encarta other people's leave behind and at the same time talking about kind of social responses to put a stop to Queen as harsh and saying that we have people in beyond a steward. Anna suffering inconceivable heartbreak inside I don't think this things really contradict necessarily in her presentation of them like if she's presenting it as like a clear people. Who are afflicted than? That's certainly something you could say and therefore side it shouldn't be so hard on them. You know that they need to find their way back or whatever yeah and I guess link that to like the thing she says about when she was a kid like my parents didn't need to take me to dock decide needed to be logged given like wholesome hobbies. Basically, she's saying that Queer people. For love and being directed back onto the right path can stop being Quia and if you're going to make an argument, the quick people should be cared for more in the context of being published in a major publication.

"That it was just the police didn't like couldn't find ways to stop it czar I would definitely blaze it. It was the case here that there was no specific law that said women can't wear pants but was like nine. That's not right. We won't allow it suddenly. Like, sporadic laws specifically against crossdressing coming around like the end of the nineteenth century places in the United States K. I can't maybe that works on the way. Yeah. They may have been was like were intended for specific behaviors but were then applied he yet. Where realistically had probably spent forty years not being applied in that circumstance because the holy woman wearing pants yeah. Just who were queer or year actively challenging Knowles Gender and sexuality. Yeah had. So therefore, the law had them yet that's definitely true when that could have been around forever they. They just pulled out right now to target like formats, for example, similarly when gladys briefly performed at reopen do Bongi Club. In nineteen forty, four reviews described as great test and the club was shut down by police. So it is a one to one correlation in that time a good shut down because of gladys. Yeah. I believe. So in my fifties, gladys changed her image although she did continue to a p. She, added wearing address and traditionally feminine. Strings of bells, and then in nineteen fifty two, she write the article in Ebony that we've referred to. So like sort of publication is happening like what's time? It's African American dislike kind of Media Culture Entertainment, kind of magazine. was published in the self help sections are the ideas help other queer people stop being queer it's generally like a kind of middle class conservative. Audience the article glass published was apparently written to publicize photographing, which is titled If the species that factory was never published, and unfortunately the manuscript if it ever existed was completed has been lost damn. Yeah. That's so unfortunate. It is very unfortunate. Yeah. I mean maybe it's somewhere but probably not I'd say her place just an attic somewhere. Yeah. One day I mean if the article was written to publicize the autobiography I would suggest the autobiography would have a similar time to the obstacle in kind of being about renouncing her Kwena spot. But that'd be more details could. We do. Be For us to work with. As outspoken about the ebony article begins by talking about glass childhood as we describe inside of this podcast and it talks about the fact that she believed influence to into growing up into a queer adult, she goes on to talk about how she was unable to find personal happiness and therefore she sought happiness through fame instead bought quite still in my secret hot I was weeping and wind because I was traveling the wrong way to real love and true happiness. She then goes on to tell us about half things changed win while living in l. a. a man named Don she says, he had me very confused because I couldn't understand what I was doing letting normal. Man Pay attention to me, but gladys dawn grew close and gladys began to consider marriage concerned that she wouldn't be able to resist to watch calls her old habits. She went to say doctor who told her quite from the article your sex organs are infantile. They haven't progressed past the stage of the fourteen year old child. He prescribed lettuce a six month course of thrice weekly hormone shots which would overcome predominant male hormones. A treatment which gladys says help to change her life completely following Gladys Mary Don. So this contrast with what gladys set earlier in the hospital with a claim that we tabled a made not born she she offers us a physical biological explanation for. Whether there's any truth to this story I do not know, but this was definitely one treatment that could be prescribed for homosexuality time. So I'm very interested in Don. We don't know anything about Don t doesn't provide a son in Don. Okay. So I guess like in terms of y she gradually changed her life in perspective and presentation etc doesn't obvious explanation for that in the general shift of the countries like culture and political climate regarding these things. But like you know it's worth looking at other factors as well and I I would just like no but about Don. And his point of view on her life. So general progression of events she despise Don Don was a friend of a friend. He was Usseileh she was originally very apprehensive. Getting to know him because she didn't like sales generally she bounded by kind of represented the worst masculinity bought she gradually got tonight don they started seeing each other it's not really clear how romantic that was at that point. Definitely talks about being kind of confused about herself. And during that stage of their relationship she says that she told done everything about harassment about herself and dawn very understanding and was like Yep I kind of knew all this already it's okay and then later on, don't asked if he could kiss her she said, yes, and from that point she started thinking she wanted to marry him than to let go on dawn. Did they definitely get married? She's a real. Not. As they got married I've never seen a record of the marriage. Are there. Are there other accounts odom not that I know of? This. So it was all I. Don could just be like a like a fake part of this story that kind of fits with this narrative of gladys becoming more like conventional ahead for sexual I just like we've had this whole simply fictional game. And our we have a possibly fictional head marriage. Yeah. It's just really interesting to how both sides of. The song was going to be lied to argue about and I think you know fundamentally based on her words. It's pretty meaningless. Dog was she gay or she strikes. I. Don't think that's a meaningful argument to have. But if you are going to, it would be like, okay. Well, he is the evidence like there's no evidence as. You're going strictly by. Marry to confuse you FEM. Yes. I wanted to ask say we mentioned Eliot that gladys was like bisexual but played up being a lesbian for the publicity. That's what Abel's. Okay. So do we know anything else about previous and the way she's? The way she wants out in the ebony optimal. Though. This is the first time she. Yeah. Yeah I was Gonna say that that seems like the vibe and I wonder like if this relationship code and if mobile's riot and she had had relationships with men previously like what was the difference to her? is that like dawn as a guy comes from the navy? Heterosexual culture and these were men who maybe more. Than the milia she was in then a bit like obviously just speculation 'cause we know nothing about it. So never mind. So Gladys Kansas in Ebony article it marriage to done didn't lost that suspicious all that. She didn't tell us that at the time of the article she's now married to columnist jt gives them had died the month before the article was published obviously natural exactly when the article was pinned and although he's a bitch in the african-american magazine, jet refers to him glasses husband another newspaper audible from around this time tells us that prior to his death he denied ever being married to gladys, and as far as we nine record exists of the marriage k run this timeline by me again place. to dawn, and then when did she say that marriage is either saw she doesn't really give to don fortunately she decided to ask my met on I married dawn. It didn't work out but it was a good experience that helped me become a straight. Okay. But does she say that like a few years later or or she kind of be like I was definitely married to don a real living man But it's over like is there like what's the timeline of those claims like is that all in the one article took it's all in this. And then when does she come to be married to this other guy? So it's all in the same article. So in March well, she says, then I, married jt Gibson. So this oculus in August nine, hundred, fifty, two, jt Gibson died in July nineteen, fifty, two, he's bitter I Miss Mary to her but August nine, fifty, two, four, the Ebony article comes out an article comes out which says jt Gibson denies ever having been married Gladys Bentley before he died. So we have no idea of the timescale she's implying of like when she married dawn or how long she was nothing. All right. Well, okay. Okay. We don't have any record of her claiming to be married to this columnist before this article, but obviously she was. Record from her but he's a bit.

"The one that was cited for this claim did not include a mention I listened to several others who's like catalog record suggested they could mention that didn't mention that doesn't mean it doesn't exist because so much tape. The difficult thing with art history issue like control F. in them. Yeah. That's transcript to these unfortunately roller wedding. By Mabel does talk about other queer marriages that took place in Harlem generally the lighter than supposed wedding in the late nineteen thirty s or early nineteen forties when Mabel talks about and the couples she talked about generally those couples I've mentioned already that we would consider like butch femme couples sheriff has to them as Mama and Papa. Various other phases. That's really interesting. The idea that the these full lies weddings yet relationships in the late thirties and early because by that point, you know you're starting to get into McCarthyism in the kind of push back against these communities. Yeah. Yeah and so you're kind of pasta the peak. Of those as like. Intensely quiz basis. Yeah. I. Choose to call about the late thirties and early forties something be like just before we kind of see this. Yeah. As we talked about a bit in the wonder woman episode, this was a love. quit CAL for movements. In that time as well during mobile turn and then yeah, is very much like just toward the end of the war as the wolf finishes you start to get. The real pushback and like when you think crackdown on something, you always have to assume it's because that was flourishing yet. Yeah. Yeah. So. Yeah. It's just interesting because I feel like generally at least my perception is song who hasn't studied this era. He's the yet like I think of it as like tweenies intimate. In like. You don't necessarily think about the late thirties early forties. Yeah. Yeah. And like in terms like que- performance that's true like I guess the public face. But obviously in private was continuing. Yeah I. Guess it was. As much of an audience whilst those war on Yeah I guess that's true as well. That's not just a quick thing. Yeah. Yes. I Mabel talks about how they've couples would get a marriage license and signed the marriage registry by presenting themselves as a heterosexual couple, and then they hold a ceremony that pretty much mirrored a traditional heterosexual welden except that it had all female cost including the guests. So she talks, for example, about one woman whose mother gave her away at the old and a game minister named Reverend. Monroe would officiate these weddings and apparently also officiated mailman weddings. So these are legal these illegal weddings. Good Leo. Gay Wedding in the night thirty. Yeah Yeah. HOUSE AMAZING I was GONNA say they're not entirely legal because they fly it on a legal document but like belial Biz legal documentation that these weddings. Yes. There is legal documentation of these wedding. That's correct. The people involved in the were conducting an illegal act. We don't have a problem with that. And the law didn't know that. So that's fine. So they using fake names. Yeah. I mean from what I got. The real name for one of them who I come masculine is version of name or something like that for the. Yeah. Okay. Well, they also apparently like us the name of like a gay male friend that they had who was willing to offer his name for that purpose. That's like the ultimate like gay men being friends with Lesbians. Again like. Solid. Absolutely. It's already the that's fantastic. Wonder. How much of this was them actually like tricking people and how much this was people being like willing to be tricks? Yea. I Yeah I mean I guess it really depends sitting on the register that day. Yeah. But maybe you knew that like if you WANNA choose day, Tim, would be the highest. Tim was just like Yup Matthew Absolutely. Muzzle Tall. Not Turn that story that could be the case. Yeah y'all need to get like one gay working at the that's true. The weekly like gays get down to the. Registry, office. Although we don't have a record of gladys's marriage like there's definitely a paradigm which could have taken place. Okay. Let's mobile's bull in that environment. Yeah. I could definitely as have happened. We don't have a record unless we can find this type of Mabel that did happen. So the cited tape of Mabel. She took about weddings in that type, but just not gladys's winning Yeah. I think she does talk about weddings tape. She also talked about weddings and several. So. Yeah. Still the fact that she does talk about weddings but not the specific one. Does to make me more suspicious. Maybe this is the type that whoever meant. Aside, it just isn't a valid citation. Yeah. The fact that they provide a specific date like Mabel says this happened in nineteen thirty one. Made me think that Mabel must like they say may will said this happened when in reality Mabel said, this kind of match happened yet I. If anyone wants to thrown listen to all mammals tapes then police not find out where she mentioned 1931 yeah. So nine thirty, three prohibition laws were repealed ironically instead of making the nightlife in Harlem more, Frayed, the repeal of prohibition made things less. So as the sale of alcohol in Nukes, bars and clubs became tightly controlled. The State Lethal Authority was established which police behavior in bars and venues could lose Aleka license if they were found to be disorderly, which could mean queer performances for many venues became too much of a risk in ninety four gladys was performing at King's terrace nightclub where she fronted a chorus of what newspaper articles at the time described as eight liberally painted male CPN's with a feminine voices gestures Sepia. they use it to in black. I'd never encampment to I researched this episode but yeah, like CPI. Photo at its Brown in this performance, gladys performed among other things a seemingly endless song in which every word nine to vulgar profanity is used in much that yes. Nineteen thirty four a formal complaint with made about climate performance and a few weeks later, kings terrace club was closed down. It's not clear. These two events would directly connected, but the definitely by symptoms of a change taking place in the culture around Queens Sexuality the Harlem Club Scene At this time from kings terrace. Last move to headlining a show at the Benji Club will have a fomative continue to grow in by size and self conscious quiz. He issue is accompanied by a chorus of forty or fifty pansies as they're referred to. Once again, a feminine male performance sometimes in drag sometimes just. Like sexy Salas and stuff like that and hilarious actively referenced the way in which she plays with gender one. For example, being nothing now perplexes like the sexes because when you see them switch you can't tell which is which Banke as you can tell from like this comment relied both on the kind of performance of citation of blackness for a wide audience that were even Bob. customers many black people in Harlem. So Gladys as selling out by into work there. One. Journalist described the club as ironed controlled by white racketeers patronage of slumming whites, petty gangsters, and I suppose we don't know gladys. Knight in her article. Got Stokes right positively Acharya bought. Yeah. She doesn't really address this Kinda racial tension at all. So we have no idea. Gladys was very successful at the evanger club and she spent three years there. But during that time, we had gradually decreasing her act. So as she'd wants being referred to as the king, she was now referred to as Broadway's Queen of Song Jazz Anta backup pansies were replaced by troop of women cold Yuban gets eventually even this wasn't enough and ninety seven at had its license revoked in nineteen thirty eight gladys left New York, and she moved to l. a. where she lived with him up with quick able content increasingly sean from mainstream baas Gladys Fan and audience in a growing number of quiz specific bars. And Clubs on America's West Coast from nineteen, forty, two, nine, hundred, forty, five, she was a regular act at San Francisco Mona's openly lesbian club which marketed itself as the place where goes will be boys despite several run. INS with the police maynas was a naturally long running club clubs like miners and like the queer clubs on the West Coast in general generally shut down as quickly as they started up however at the nineteen forties and nineteen fifties, it became increasingly difficult for gladys to continue career in the same mould that she'd begun. Performing in L. A. In one, thousand, nine, hundred for example, she had to seek a special permit to be allowed to wear pants onstage. Jesus yeah, like I've not that surprising but also like did she get it, she did get it. I believe what Sir Evaluation to web hands on stage either night what the details of that likely will process were at. Like, what was the little? Public Indecency when we did our website on starring will I did a lot of looking to say if that will like specific laws against cross dressing. Or if it was just kind of a general, the police didn't Leica and I recall from that context in New York.

"Just an idea of what she sounds like. Jazz Blues People just go so hard and I love him. Now Imagine doing that from ten evening until door. Yeah. I call him engine doing anything from ten evening who sleeping sleeping. Yeah. Yeah Yeah. That is sir up to cheese like just starting out effectively. Yeah. So if that clips from related to she kind of stay performing the same sort of stuff for quite a while then yes she does she kind of has a pot becker that's in Harlem from the she gets there in the twenties until she leaves in the late thirties and we'll talk A. Bit about how music develops during that time basically, the trend is that it does get a bit more conservative in for example, like the lyrics, the things she sings about bought understand it's basically the talk musical the way through. So I got US performance was characterized by two things masculine dress and very filthy lyrics unfortunately have recordings of those lyrics because they weren't appropriate for recording. But a particular talent was improvising obscene new lyrics to popular songs. We'll the young writing and nineteen thirty nine tells us so adept was she at this odd that she could take the most tender ballot and converted into a new lawyer with filthy lyrics and often audience singing along. So yeah. The nature of these performances by Thomas Perspective of decency and copyright means that they were never recorded. So does she have a standard repertoire? She constantly I think from what I gathered she kind of developed a standard as you went on by this eloquent career, she was just constantly improvising. Yeah. I. Guess It was probably just you know this is popular right now. Yeah or someone's requested this song it's also very likely that glasses live music was explicitly Quia. Once again, we have recordings of this but I say this because blues in general at the time was a very quiet genre. So the voice that black women could gain through blues music of one of them a chance to take control of the image and particularly of the iron sexuality in ways that broke out of the kind of dichotomy. That they would generally forced fit into which is kind of a decentralized model figure or a kind of younger exotic hyper sexualize young woman figure, and through expression themselves blues were able to expand beyond that and express a wider and more complex range of sexuality with regard to that. Wheel Eric's were very common amongst both male and female saints in Nineteen Twenty-three. For example, hunt saying if you don't want me tell me to my face because five of six women longed take your place in nineteen twenty eight Who was also a very masculine blues singer sang went out last night with a crowd of my friends. They must have been women because I don't like men. These are just two examples of like a huge list of lyrics I had written down in my night. So then out of the ordinary by means. So how have those lyrics come down twelve like their recordings? I don't know why it's the case that gladys didn't record any Quia music because the definitely were recording music. This time I want you say recorded is that limited to like a recording studio earlier at the yet more because obviously knocking at a mobile phone? Yeah. Yes. Their records that were produced with studio as records. explicitly. Yeah, that's really interesting. It's very cool and gladys didn't do any of it. They like mainstream recordings. Jizzle I know in terms of like publishing there are a lot of like niche presses opening up for the black community to. Expand their but was at a with like recording studio. I don't think are recorded by black music Music labels generally had lie they make mainstream music, what they called race records, which was specifically black music full black people, anti days with generally marketed on that race record labels to weekly like referring using rice to refer to African American people and culture. What's the norm at the time? What was normal at the time? That's not a derogatory phrase at the time and is there any sense that it's more possible for say a woman to record with the label that is equipment or is it same? Pretty? Equal in that regard I found more examples of Queer women but the definitely were examples of men as well. And I'm not sure if that was just examples that I can must because I was reading about a woman arc, we women generally wear more publicly acceptable in in the public eye, but yet the definitely women. Doing this and seeing about mile queen this as well. So despite never recording Queen Music with a record label, gladys swats very open about Queer identity, which brings me to the second aspect of her performance which I mentioned, which is masculine dress. Let us described his style as quite immaculate white full dress shirts with stiff collars small by ties scopes, Oxford's short eaten jackets and hair straight back. She later moved on wearing skirts to wearing her trademark white Tuxedo, which some of my famous photo is of her wearing. You've probably seen if you've got a picture of Gladys Bentley guy have now it's very striking it's GonNa. Is a white Tuxedo is pretty striking. It. That's that's excellent and as she had in childhood, she maintained style off stage. On stage. So she's just wearing a white Tuxedo, twenty, four, seven placed. A White Tuxedo Dan Mayo employment she's got seven White Tuxedos. Yeah. Won't fade away. So you can imagine that if you want. We'll put the fight on blogs. So if you're listening to this, you can go to our blog and look at the final and it will probably be the company image for this episode as well. Gladys was far from the only person in the Harlem and Community Assigned Female Birth wearing this style of clothing although we don't have record of glasses in the West has self she's often identified as a boondoggle which has quite similar to how we understand the would butch in a lesbian..

A look at Gladys Bentley, American blues singer

"Before we get started as we normally do at the start of a person's life I'm going to jump in when gladys was forty five years old in the year nineteen, fifty, two revolutionnaire. Arcada. Their time travel is upset. Yes. Heavens the reason why jumping in he is because nine fifty two is the at that one amount main sources was written and I want to talk about that. Source. Pot, Abou- review before we actually. Talk about that. So in the nineteen forties and nineteen fifties in the USA politicians like Senator Joe McCarthy was spearheading moral and political panicked about queer people in the understanding that we who are not only immoral but also susceptible to blackmail and therefore more likely to become communist spies. Goddess Bentley had built her career on being an openly queer and gender non conforming blues performer in nineteen, Fifty, two in. The African American magazine Ebony, she write an article titled. I'm a woman again in which she talks very late at queasiness before renouncing it and championing heterosexuality and Hetero normativity. In this article, she says, I became a woman again when I discovered unaccepted the one glorious thing which for so many years I had bitterly fought with all my heart mind and body the law of antennas, the devotion of a man. I thought it was kind of Jesus. Is, the man Jesus, the matters not Jesus She did definitely become more involved with her church later in her life, but she doesn't necessarily link that to her. Queens. So like Jesus here but only incidentally. Background character. Incidental Jesus is my Christian rock band. Do you come across. Do. Christian covers rock songs. Both I anyway. What happened YOU CLAP We'll talk a lot more about the background to this article and what was happening in life at that time. When we get to that I, think the sort of political background McCarthyism is. Hardly the main you need to know that, and the reason that I wanted to bring this up and mentioned at the start is because this article is the only information we have about Gladys inhering voice. Well, that's quite a pickle. It is quite a pickle that we are. And it's also the only source of information we have about her childhood before she was about twenty one. Okay. So that's that most by graphical information comes from what can be gleaned from newspaper is nobody's ever written a biography. All Gladys on the work of like interviewing people who knew anything like that is that is something that could still be done. Do you think she was born in nineteen ninety seven so like a lot of people anyone who knew her in her early life is GonNa be dead. Yeah. But from headlight alive that would probably still be some still alive could talk about her bought definitely have to be done pretty soon. I'm not aware of anyone working on unfortunately, but hopefully, someone is yeah. So I just wanted to raise that heavy keep in mind that that's the source of wealth with before we start talking about glass at life. So I got us was born in Philadelphia on the twelfth of August nine, hundred seven to George and Mary Bentley. She was the oldest of four siblings in a black working class family according to Gladys's article in Ebony Mary had wanted a son and she was very disappointed when she had a door refusing much as tasha child on Nessa Child. Gladys. Intern says she always felt repulsed by men including her father brothers and uncles and she says. I suppose the reason was that they will admire while I was scorned from ninety nine or ten. She began to steal her brothers choirs at first to feel she was getting even with them but then I began feel more comfortable in boys quarries than dresses have parents teachers objected to gladys as masculine dress. The gladys was obstinate and she and her parents eventually reached a compromise by gladys wear what's called a meaty blouse. So that's what you'd pictures like kind attritional Salas like a navy ship and she went out with a skirt during elementary school gladdest about to crush on a female teachers she tells us in Class I sat the hours watching her and. Wondering, why I was so attracted to at night I dreamed I didn't understand the meaning of those dreams until later. I. WanNA mention this because it's got his first experience of being attracted to a woman that we know about and also just think it gives you a bit of an idea of how in her article the Ebony she does talk openly about like being que- and being attracted to women and wanting to present in a masculine way and these kinds of things like she doesn't deny that this is an aspect then renounces it and decides that Hetero. normativity is better suicide angle on this that she used to feel this way but she has stopped. Or the she feels this way but has decided that that's not any good. I tell you. It's more than she used to feel this way but has stopped. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. It's hard to say because she does sort of talk about talk about there are other people who have the same who had the same experiences in she refers to those groups like she uses like way if she's talking about painting society and she's still kind of identifies with those groups. But at the same time, she says as things like I've become a woman again now I love man I'm able to Vin into this female role Besse so I'm interested to hear how gender and sexuality. Interacting glasses life. Easier we go through what I was saying I've become a woman again. that. Yeah. I really interested to hear your thoughts on that. I, don't really nine because we have so little in gladys invoice except this. Has a lot of a lot about the stuff going on and influence why she write this article. It's hard to say how gladys feels about gender, but we will talk about Nemo. As. Gladys grew older cy when she was a teenager, her mother thought taking doctors. She doesn't explicitly tell us in Ebony article the reason for this but it's apparent that it was connected to fairly to perform femininity in the way that was expected of him. Gladys tells us she believes parents meant well botched quite what my family did not know was that. I didn't need a doctor, but love's affection and healthy interests to supplant the malignant growth festering inside of me, and she seems to argue at this point in the article that it was the original rejection by her mother that fest push towards her gender non conforming behavior and that her parents subsequent relations attempting to force her to conform to femininity.

Dr. Charles Binkley Discusses Medical Ethics in the Time of COVID-19

"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David Intra. Cosso with me today discussed the nation's response, the ongoing Kobe nineteen, pandemic and context of healthcare ethics. Is Dr. Charles, Brinkley the director of bioethics at the Santa Clara University's or coolest center for Applied Ethics. Dr Bank welcome to the program. Thank you, David. It's really good to be with you today I have to say dark billy Bigley I particularly appreciate time since of course, California's once again. Experiencing another unprecedented wildfire season. So thank you. For making. Absolutely it's a real privilege to be on the show Dr. Bentley's vile is, of course, posted on the podcast website. On background, our nation's response to the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has been I would characterize as disastrous. For example, as has been widely reported approximately one third of all Kobe. Nineteen related deaths have been among Nursing Home Facility residents. African Americans have been more than twice as likely as non Hispanic whites to die of covid nineteen complications. Inadequately protected healthcare providers. Now conveniently turned heroes in a war against Covid as if the virus will one day surrender. Defeated, have been required to work in lethal environments as for Service Workers Moreover, minorities instead of recognizing their do a livable wage. Health Insurance and or sick leave. We term essential workers and give them a hand. Clap. Has for the federal government's response to the president's sensitivity apparently goes so far as his stating, it is what it is. That the dictionary defines a business phrase that can be literally translated as and pardon my French fuck it. As for the Congress's response seventy, five percent of direct and indirect cares act money's went to corporations any forthcoming or additional federal response must include for the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's prerequisite covid related legal immunity protection, or legislation consistent with what over twenty states have adopted to date. Are Spas the pandemic in some brings to light the chasm that continues to exist between medical ethics. Requires provider to support the betterment of public health and a responsibility to seek positive forms that are in the best injures of patience. And how we deliver health care that is substantially profit motive dominated. I'll add in my nearly twenty five years doing healthcare policy work in DC. I never wants to tenor meeting or participated in a conversation with the speaker disgust or made reference to, for example, John Rawls veil of big nurturance or tick him Olam. With Megan discuss the woeful state of healthcare ethics in the time of Covid is again Dr Charles Bentley. So with that as a somewhat lengthy introduction Dr Brinkley. Limb in assuming, you'd largely agree federal policymakers have to understated done a poor job of living up to their obligations and responding to the pandemic. So my question is in your view what generally accounts for this. David I. Think from a public policy perspective. Many of the issues have become overly politicized. So for instance, things like mask wearing school reopenings, how to reopen the economy have not always been based solely on the best medical or scientific principles but they've been put us is to take, for instance, the initial recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about school reopening those were revised based on the administration's desire to somehow make them more applicable or to open up things more aggressively. So science hasn't always. been the most respected voice in the pandemic Dr. Falcone has emerged as really a hero for what is truth, and so you have to consider the perspective of physicians in making recommendations in a physician or a scientist in general is going to base recommendations on doing good and avoiding harm. That's really the ethical principle of medicine, and so for instance, plan the American Academy of Pediatrics Recommendations for. School reopening is a very child centric perspective as well. You would expect the group of pediatricians to speak from the perspective of children and when you take the balance of school opening on the whole, it's far more advantageous to children for schools to be reopened not only because of the intellectual benefit schools provide but all the other resources of schools provide for children besides the traditional reading writing and arithmetic. Takes Her instance the number of hungry children who rely on schools for nourishment, the number of children but medical problems who rely on schools For their care asthma screening vision dental care. You look at children with disabilities who really are dependent on their schools, not only for learning but also for occupational therapy physical therapy and those students not only are not progressing in minsters they're regressing during the pandemic when they're not in schools, you can't substitute the services that they were offered in person with remote learning and must be heartbreaking to those parents to see their children regress in this time. So really the perspective of the most vulnerable and some ways has come to light. During the pandemic when I think globally about how ethics the affected the pandemic

PS5: Sony gives first look at PlayStation 5

"Episode is going to be all about the playstation. Five and the PSI reveal event that Oh my God showed so much. I'm joined this week by Brian. Town Hey beyond beyond Lucy O'Brien. Beyond. Mexico Bill. Larry Station. Guys We. We have so much to talk about. It's a meeting like the pipe was finally unblocks. Yeah I like. The number of episodes were even like playstation. Games are coming soon. They're coming soon. We're GONNA get into Oliver Reactions the biggest game some of the. Gains in some of the stuff that we didn't see in this place type reveal event I. If you haven't watched it, we'll have some of the bureau going, but please go check out all of these really cold trailers. But I do want to start off of course with the consulate self We were all watching the show together. We were listening. and talking over dischord together, and throughout the whole show we all like. Are they leading up to the console, and they lead up to the council. They showed the design of the PS five. In fact, they should to designs. We have one with the disc drive in it, and then also an all digital edition much like xbox one Saturday. We didn't get prices for this or released, but we did. Get a designed so I want to know everyone. What did you think of this designed Lucy? Let's start with you since I. Know The design has been a big thing for you. Well I mean I as I said on livestream like I've always wanted Sony to go like stupid crazy with this, because like console designs have gotten increasingly conservative over the years, and I've just. I said all along like make this like home is car like just at a whole bunch of we to it? Make it strange like heaven. You know strange shape, and and all that and you know I gotta say they really delivered on this one I mean it is oh, it is a weird looking console. I mean the means already starting as we speak. The names the main factory is generating. It's I love it I have absolutely no idea how it's. GonNa, work, aesthetically might apartment. By afternoon photos of it horizontally I will say there are photos that show you can put it in your. You know which is which is good I, can't I can't think of the district is a little like a little hernia. Mainland China like it's like it's like it's pregnant, but that on the side, so it's like a little hernia on the side Damn. Had On. It would probably look like like the the disc version is off before we went into quarantine. And then there's the other version where we have A. You know we've gained the covert. We have. Got Exactly where my thoughts went to, but yeah Taylor Pooch. You know needs you can work off. You can lose weight in like a week or two. You just gotTa. Just clean eating, no beer for a couple of days. But why would you WANNA do that? The My? Now wants to chow down after snacks. I I'm totally I. This is probably one of the more surprising looking council reveals ever honestly in terms of the first impressions, just in terms of like being something that is so completely nontraditional while immediately screaming video game console at U. obviously a lot of people being incredibly productive, being like it looks like a router I'm old enough to know that this is the same stuff of intend to. We I think. Think, people like they they they get really bored when they just see a big black sideways boxer vertical box but they also don't want it to go to strange in another direction I'm actually all for it. The interesting thing to me is that people have started to lineup using the drive size and the USB size in the front. Exactly how much bigger taller it would be than the series accents obviously sinner. What it is about five to six inches taller with. Is is pretty is pretty sizable I honestly maybe could be four inches, but it's either way it's this. This is a significant size taller than the series x, and it got me looking at my entertainment center, and wondering. Where is GONNA work near to put it sideways. Put it vertical but you know we the second controller I think we kinda hoped that it would aesthetically match the bizarre weirdness of how kind of like weird future future they went with that and the white black color scheme, and they delivered, and I'm all for it. I we're you know we've got to see if there's any other colors that will see for but. I remember when the series came out. People were immediate like Oh. You can put stickers on it. You Skins on it and I. Don't know if I want to do that. This like at all like it feels like putting a bumper sticker on a Bentley. It really feels like just by looking at it that it went through so many different iterations that someone to said okay light lace just like just tear up history books and start afresh in like. Just go not so that like just a as crazy as you want. And then we'll kind of like lower it from there and I really love to see some of those other designs, because it does like we did this on the last show I think Otani use it like it does feel like it could have been a mock-up from a fan.

Share Share Share Share what what what what we we we we are are trained trained are are trained trained to to do do to to with with do do tilt, tilt with with tilt, tilt is is make is is make it it that that it it that that multi multi multi multi service service service service development development development development is is is is easy easy easy easy that? that. that? that. You You You You can can get get can can get get back back back back to to to to where where you you where where you you were. were were. were When when When when you you come come you you come come in in in in in in the the morning morning in in the the morning morning or or when when or or you you when when join join you you join join a a team, team, a a team, team, you you you you just just just just type type type type tilt tilt tilt tilt up, up, up, up, and and and and it it takes takes it it takes takes all all all all of of of of the the the the source source source source code code code code for for for for all all of of your your all all different different of of your your different different services, services, services, services, and and and and it it it it spins spins spins spins them them up up them them up up in, in. so So in, in. you you so So have have you you a a have have developer developer a a developer developer instance instance instance instance that that could could that that be be could could running running be be running running on on your your on on laptop laptop your your laptop laptop could could could could be be running running be be running running in in a a in in cloud cloud a a cloud cloud cluster, cluster, cluster, cluster, and and and and you're you're. You're you're you're. You're able able able able to to win. win. to to You You win. win. hit. hit. You You hit. hit. Save Save Save Save then then then then see see see see that that that that code code code code running running running running for for for for real real real real not not not not in in in in a a production production environment, environment, but but you you can can load load it it in your in web your browser, web browser, and you can and you interact can interact with it, with it, and and you can you change can change any any line line of code of code whether whether it's it's go go code code in the in graph, the graph, Q. L., Q. server L., server or or type type script. script. That's That's running running in in the front the front end end or or a a JVM, JVM, service. service. Right Right kind kind getting getting live, live, reload reload for your for entire your entire stack stack and and so. so. What's What's important important there? there? Well, Well, one one thing thing is is the speed the speed of of from from when you when hit you save. hit save. How How long long does it does take it take until until you're codes? you're codes? Running Running developers developers are this are this fantastic fantastic and and evil evil kind kind of lazy. of lazy. Where Where if if they they see see a shortcut, a shortcut, they'll start they'll start doing doing it. it. And it will And end it will up end being up being unsafe unsafe at some at some point, point, and and then then you've you've saved saved yourself yourself some some time time because because it's faster it's faster as as you do you do it, it, but. but. When When it gets it gets out out of sinker, of sinker, askew. askew. You then You have then to have spend to spend hours hours figuring figuring out what's out happening. what's happening. And And so so I'm really I'm really proud. proud. That That tilt tilt supports supports live live update update that you that can you actually can actually update update containers containers that are that running are running in in the cluster, the cluster, even even in the in cloud the cloud in in less less than a than second. a second. You You would never would never want want to do to do that for that your for production your production workloads, workloads, but but it's the it's way the that way you're that able you're able to to get get the the same same kind of kind feedback of feedback loop loop low low latency latency as you as had you had before, before, you moved you moved to Coober to Coober Netease Netease for development. for development. And then And I then think I think the thing the thing that that we've we've realized realized is. is. You You don't just don't need just to need get to get the code the code out out there. there. You also You also need to need get to get the feedback the feedback when when there's a there's problem a problem when when a pods a pods and crash and crash loop loop back back off off when when it dies it dies when when it can't it can't even even except except the the camel. camel. You're You're able able to see to see it in it the in U.. the U.. I I because because tilt tilt runs runs as as a a web web APP. APP. It's It's running running on your on laptop. your laptop. Your Your seeing seeing it in it your in your browser browser at local at local host, host, but but you're you're able able to get to get a holistic a holistic view, view, and so and in addition so in addition to the to the logs logs in the in center the center of your of screen your screen over over on the on right. the right.
