Economic Fallout From COVID-19 Continues To Hit Lower-Income Americans the Hardest
"Just a few types of locations. KQED science reporter Danielle Benton has more from a recent study out of Stanford. Location services are enabled on, say, your weather app. Your phone shares information about where you go on how long you're there. Whenever you leave the house and self interest are restaurants, jeans, grocery stores, places of worship. This data is anonymous ized and used by researchers like you're a less Kovic, Stanford computer scientist. He and others recently modeled how people's outings drove the course of the epidemic in the 10 biggest US metropolitan areas. When New York you had a huge spike and people state a common dividers die down. Philadelphia, San Francisco was up and then kind of flat. Researchers could also infer which types of locations were responsible for the most transmissions. Before there were widespread health safety precautions. There is a very small number off places about let's say 10%, where 85% of full infections happened. Indoors. Sit down. Restaurants, cafes and gyms are the top three. Crowded businesses also increased risk there, especially a problem in low income neighborhoods. And you found out that even a trip to a grocery store is twice as 3 FT. For an individual from a low income neighborhood versus individual from high income neighborhood. Residents of poor neighborhoods are also more likely to work, low wage service jobs that can't be done online. One of the big achievements of this study is to highlight the occupational vulnerability that People on the lowest ends of our occupational structure have had to face Merlin Chow Kwan Yin's studies public health at Columbia and was not involved in this work. He says. It highlights how important temporary income assistance could be for people who cannot afford to stay home. The study also shows that tapping a businesses peak capacity can slash transmission while cutting overall foot traffic by only a small amount. I'm Danielle Benton KQED news. Now we're going to

Long-term unemployment is looming
"Everybody, we are going to do a little labor market one, two, three by way of getting going to de. Item One this morning, the private payroll processor ADP gave us. It's guests is dominy jobs. The economy added last month four, hundred, twenty, eight, thousand, which is a nice hefty number but well, short of what everybody had been guessing, which was closer to a million speaking of million that gets us to labor market marker to the weekly report on new unemployment claims that will come tomorrow it'll be at or near a million people freshly out of work as it's been every week for five plus months. And speaking of months Friday morning, we'll bring the August jobs report. That's item three. We probably added jobs and the unemployment rate probably went down there end if the predictions. But there's a common thread that's running through the American labor market right now once you get past all the data and the indicators. As marketplace's Mitchell Hartman reports millions of Americans are facing the prospect of long-term unemployment. covid nineteen has not been good to the Life Events Business Rock Concerts and festivals pretty much shut down on a dime in early spring. That's when Jason George of Benton Harbor Michigan got laid off like many of my co workers in the industry we've been furlough for very long time initially, George was on temporary layoff from his job managing shows for a big event promoter. He got on unemployment his employer paying his benefits and he waited for a callback but summer still no concerts or call backs, and as of yesterday Georgia's employer has made his temporary layoff permanent benefits stopped at the end of the month it does feel different because there's not that safety-net. Could possibly go back sooner rather than later. So does feel official election we're kind of on our own to figure things out for ourselves. A lot more workers are likely to end up like Jason, George in coming months. It's very unlikely that if you've been furloughed for this length of time that you're going to go back, Daniel Sternberg is a data scientist at Gusto, an HR platform for small businesses he says. Furloughed back in March there was a thirty percent chance. You'd be called back by April because your company received funds or was able to reopen in some capacity. But then if we go out into future months smaller and smaller percentage is portraying tour and by July, a majority of furloughed workers were still waiting to be called back. And people laid off early in the pandemic are now approaching the Labor Department defines US long term unemployment more than twenty six weeks without a job jobless benefits start to run out people go through their savings to pay the bills and long-term unemployment decreases workers, chances of getting reemployed. Harvard economist Gabriel Chorro Reich and a colleague at the Fed have been projecting this out in our baseline stimulation in early twenty, twenty, one four and a half million people unemployed for more than twenty six weeks. More pessimistic scenario that number rises to one in five million that would still be fewer than the peak of six and a half million caused by the great recession. Recent polls have found that only a third of laid off workers think they'll be able to return to their jobs and a quarter of those who are still working worry. They'll lose their jobs as the pandemic drags on I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace.
Designing Your Work Life
"Let's give a little bit of context just to who you are and how you came to work together because you come from sort like different walks of life and somehow ended up originally teaching this course together and trying to figure out. Okay. What is this thing called design thinking and why is it being used in this one domain but we're not really applying this process this way of thinking to actually creating a better life. So how does the marriage I happen here? Under the origin and through to you in spring of two thousand. So. Going all the way back to when I was a Stanford Sophomore here seventy five thousand years ago when they retire on the plaza and struggling with the question, what do I do with my life? I found most of the grown-ups were supposed to be helpful not helpful at all and I found it really difficult to figure my own life and get into my career and apple in the early days and find myself on the first corporate culture. Committee was Steve In one, thousand, nine hundred because we're worried about what makes apple won't be apple anymore someday, and over the subsequent thirty years noticed everybody's got this question particularly workplace about I wanted to many for work on to work for you. Want, it to work for me. I want this to be generative used language with that's what they were looking for and with. So everybody's got this question fast forward many years. Later I'm having coffee with a guy named Randy over at Berkeley and he says Gosh have you should teach a class on this. So minor problems I'm not of the Faculty don't of a PhD don't have any contacts there I can solve everything but the lousy commute I said deal. So I taught a course experimentally one student said, are you teaching in the spring because my roommate wants to take I said sure I made a deal the universe of the kid show up I'll show up so fourteen semesters later. I'm teaching this class of Berkeley called finding your vocation and then how platinum David. Kelly get together an event. This thing called the D school decided to invent the school, which is where we are now and in order to focus on that David Kelly s this Guy Bill Burnett run the design program, and so in two thousand and seventy heard bill was coming here to run the design program said. Hey. Bill Gates. This kind of stuff he cares about students in Stanford's a lot less terrible from me. Let's have lunch and so we had lunch in two thousand and seven in the spring, which was the first of ten lunches over a year talking about this ambiguous idea of students find their way and about a minute and a half bill goes after great idea it's a huge problem. We should totally fix it design. Thinking is the way to solve this thing. So take all that stuff you're doing and flip it ended design give me a proposal will teach it. It will prototype at the summer we'll teach at this fall. Let's go I gotTA gotta run so it was a two minute meeting and I guess an appointment we gotta go. So what are the few times the bill talk faster than I do and so then we start that spring thinking of ideas and that fall teaching design students, which eventually teaching author students. But in particular design thing really did work why West go? Why did design work? Design is inherently human centered. The way we teach it and both of you and I have been working with students for longtime I started I finished my masters in eighty two I started teaching part time eighty, three I'm doing this for like thirty. Six years or something. And in office our after office hours after office. Our really smart capable students going I don't know what to do. I. Don't know how to launch. is working to suck as much as everybody tells me. How. Will I find something that I want or I like or might even be meaningful people keep asking me stupid questions like what's my passion and I don't know. So wrong broken. With me professor and it's nothing wrong with you. And then Dave, this experience over Berkeley and you know basically the class happened because he wanted a shorter commute and I wanted to. Free up my office our time but no, it's a real. It's a really big problem I. Mean you look around look at the data around the world sixty United States sixty, eight percent of the people say I'm just engaged from are highly disengaged from my job. I hate my job eighty-five percent worldwide people hate their jobs, right? So the students you know we started with students and then pretty soon after we pick kind of gone all over the university and by the way now we and we give the class to any university that wants it. We're not being taught at one hundred, fifteen, some universities and courtesy of that wonderful woman over there Gabrielle. Runs our studios. Everybody's got the same question like life be meaningful. Will this be interesting? What's work? How does work it into this big thing called life? And it's essentially a human problem because we're trying to. But designers do is make things that have happened in the world. You know, hey, this is an iphone never happened before how do you do it while you build lots and lots of prototypes and figure it out because you can't get any about the future. So when you want to do something in the future that's brand new. You need a process design thinking process it works over and over again if you apply to your life, well, what are you trying to do something new in the world your. Future. Right you've never you've never been there before you don't know what it's going to be like you probably are a little anxious or you're at a point of change we started working with thirty and forty something. I. Have This career thing but it's not exactly what I didn't really work out the way I thought or it's okay to go faster. So everybody's got this problem. How do I invent the future? Well, design thinking and design is a wave in Benton your future. I tell the students you I wanted to choice. Whether Students Twenty launching a thirty in board or fifty, and thinking about their own career you got only two choices the futures coming. You don't get to choose that. You, get the default future stuff happens in you react to it. or You design it, you put your intention in the world and you try to make the world do things that you're interested in and

Spacewalking Astronauts Closing in on Final Battery Swaps
"Astronauts are tackling the final set of battery swaps outside the international space station. NASA's Bob Benton and Chris Cassidy ventured out this morning on their third afore planned spacewalks.

No, but when I cheated in my twenties is to bring my phone to the bathroom like I bring with me wherever I went.

Even try to talk to my crush with every with everything that's going on because there's a lot going on in the world. You understood at that time. I know you did. I think that's the best time to talk to anyone I agree I because I believe the hardest thing about getting into a relationship is learning what the person is like in a time of crisis like that's basically what you're waiting right like when you start dating someone, you're like okay. Anyone can be fun when things are going well, anyone can be nice when things are going well, you know. Who are you when someone gets sick? Who are you when there's chaos?

Like showing signs of themselves that I had never seen before and I'm like Oh. God, if I was dating you I would not wanna find this out. Three years end with the mass back. But, but you had a good point about this about how? Dating Zoom dating or facetime dating great, actually just one on one. There's to facilitate your date for you normally on dates you go, and there's you go to a comedy show. The comedian facilitates the date. You go to a restaurant, the restaurant facilities. There's always something you can enjoy or talk about or hate together yet. Yeah, it's like if you go to a movie and you had a great day. That just means. The movie was like we didn't. We loved this movie. But the movie did all the work, and you can go out with people ten times and have no idea who they are constantly going to like a show or a then we're. Going on dates and throwing axes like how could that not be at least a little entertaining? That's true, yes. Even. If you hate in their day, you could be like. We took him to throw. Guy was like. Hey, let's go throw axes, I would not. I would. I would not show that. I've seen that on Instagram I didn't realize people like. I mean if you go to a restaurant, you guys hate it then.

It's never a good time today. Anyone just fucking. Shan't at least nine hundred and pajamas with their own line exactly. Yeah, exactly you get to choose your Lighting Commute people. Yeah I just don't. I don't think there's ever a good or bad time to date anyone. It's just it is what it is. Was that profound him? The next question is and this also we got in. Should I look through my partners, phone or not? Role play this one. Okay I'M GONNA say my opinion first, and then Benton, and I will role play. This has been a source of. In my household for the past week with Benton, I'm I going to say how what I believe. I believe no one should ever go through anyone's phone. I believe at thirty seven I didn't believe is a twenty five and thirty seven I believe that. If you have the instinct to go, the're partners phone, it's over. You should just leave if you think you should do that if you WanNa do that, that is 'cause. You will find what you're looking for. You're just looking for proof of what you already know. Already believed, and I've never heard someone be like. I went through my partners phone because I thought he was cheating at I, found pictures of the perfect engagement ring I want. Add like it's stories. Never gone that way like even if the phone is full of benign stuff, you're gonNA find a way to twist it into the proof that you're already looking forward to justify. And what I'll say is everyone's got shit in their phone. Vet Is GonNa. Hurt you like like. If we're together right now, you can go through my phone and find something that's going to hurt you. But it's none of your business like these are private. Conversations seem about this because I was trying to figure out a win this fight with you today and Like guys have private conversations when their girlfriends not around girls have private conversation when the guys around those are in my phone now, but you're not allowed to hear. Those are the only reason a relationship works is because I'm allowed to complain about you with my girlfriends. It's never for you to see. So, I'm not really sure how I feel about it, but I do have an opinion. Benton believes I. Just Think, were you? You have nothing to hide. You have nothing to hide, but if you think I have something to hide, why are you with me? I thought that. Why are you see we're? Okay okay, let's say okay. Let's see the roadway so i.

Marriage meant and every culture. And she talks about something called closing the doors and Windows, oh in a relationship which which just means when you're in a relationship, you have to make sure to emotionally invest with that person about the important things in your life for example, if you're at work, and you get a big promotion or you get into a fight with someone at work, don't I tell another co worker about it? Call Your partner and tell them so that they are participating in the emotional sort of ups and downs of your life so that you stay intimate so that you don't do. What I've done what Mommy did. Auntie Whitney did in her twenties, which is like Cher with your co workers all the drama that's going on in your life and then two months later. You're at home with your boyfriend in your life. Well, you don't understand me. Craig understands me. It's like well. Because you only tell Craig at work. What's going on with you? WHO's Greg First of all? You know so you have to make sure you save some of your. Because you really only have to emotionally invest and confide in someone who wants a day, so you have to make sure you save some of that for your partner to maintain that intimacy, so you don't grow apart. The door yeah clears the doors and windows because when you first told me that I was close the doors and windows them leave the car running like carbon monoxide like kill them out.

This person everything and not and I've kept my boyfriend out of the loop. So of course they can't console me or understand I'm going through because I haven't looped them in right, which makes perfect sense. Yeah, but it's it's it's I. Don't know if I'm explaining to think about it in the moment, though because you just want to talk about the feeling that you're having right there with him. Yes, you have to just like texture, boyfriend or girlfriend. Get on the phone with them and tell them what's going on and make sure that they're looped into what's? Also sometimes by the time you get home, you don't need to talk about it, 'cause you're talking about it with someone else, and you don't want to rehash it, but then the person's like well. What went on and tell me and you're like Oh this thing and you're just in their liquor, UK, are you man or you know? God don't need to talk about it again. I already did, and then they just become a nuisance to you. I also. The best piece of advice, I think I ever got and this is gonNA. Be Polarizing me and my hot takes. My takes just got hotter and hotter every week novel. I just pulled to my hair out my shutting. I was one time at the comedy store. This was got I was probably twenty six, and in the beginning when I started stand up. I could not get good spots like in the beginning you get the two am spots. Back this back in the comedy store? Before Joe, Rogan had come back. There weren't a lot of people there. There was always like five Germans in the audience like it was just like a very weird Erie place without big crowds, and I would go on at like two in the morning, and I remember I had just gotten cheated on like I. I got back to well, I kinda got back together with a guy that we have been fighting, but didn't really break up. And I grabbed his jacket to run down the comedy store to do my spot. And I reached in the pockets and they had condoms in them. And back and screamed at him and flavorful you. Yeah they were in glasses. Of Con-. There were the ones that are the glasses. Clinton did you? They were yellow neon yellow and. And so I went back and confronted him, and he told me he was sleeping with somebody else. And so I was just like a wreck, and then I ran on stage and completely abandoned material, because I couldn't focus and this is literally a bunch of people that will. Hysterically Crying onstage oversight, Jack oversized jacket, full of condoms like. Similar now. So I. There were so few people in the audience that I literally didn't even do standup. Should I Do like. I was asking them for help. I was a real catch back then. And I had my phone out because he kept texting me and calm. You guys. What should I do and it was like. Maybe! You should just let them know that he shouldn't say your house like people were trying to give me good advice off the stage and. Your bombing. You. Can we see Jeff Dunham please? Is he coming down and? And then this woman in the bag who was clearly exasperated by how lost I was? and She just went girl. Silence is the only language met understand. And it was like blew my mind. The idea to not constantly engaged with someone that I'm GonNa, fight with or not scream at them or getting some kind of coral or altercation, so silence is the only language Matt Understand. I translate. That is just like you don't always have to try to communicate with someone if they're not understanding what you're saying, there's really no point but what?.

"Hello darling. Own! Good, no! But I do I mean. Look, yes, we have an instinct to change the people I made a move. I literally made a movie about you did. The female brain there was a whole storyline with James Marsden and Lucy Punch, but there's a difference between trying to change something about someone and grooming grooming. We actually do get you know Oxytocin, dopamine and Serotonin from popping the person. You're with zits plucking their eyebrows grooming instinct. You know that's what the whole story was about. Just choose. It's also also just become a manicure. You See. that. That's love like that's a grooming instinct. You know the guy that I'm dating this morning. I was like cutting cubicles. This morning. The guy that I'm dating this morning I was like driving me nuts that he had these like cuticle hanging out, so I started cutting his goals, but I. do think if you're going to change from. Just know that it does come with a price like I. Think when we try to change. People like get them to dress certain way get them. Did you have a certain haircut? We think that we're like solving some big problems they have we think. Love but it's GonNa Caro- The relationship. We think they're so grateful for it for don't bullying. It's absolutely bullying and the other person. person's just decided. It's easier to let you do this. You know this is obviously this is something you need so badly, but just know that it's going to Kuroda relationship like if you say to your man I want you to shave your beard and I want you to stop wearing those cargo shorts and I can't hang out with these friends like and you just Marie condo their entire life. It's GonNa they're gonNA. Come back. Better, but they will hate you well. Whether it's in in two months or two years, it's going to be like I gave up my favorite cargo shorts for you. You know it's. It's never I think without. You know some kind of future consequences. Your new are breeding some resentment in the future. They're going to go there as you. If there's there's nothing men love more, it's keeping score. They love gay. Football's not on right now. Basketball's not on right now. They have to figure out some new sport, and it's probably keeping score in their relationship so I would just say. Let them keep that dartboard. Let them. Keep all the hoodies you know like it's I just because I think a lot of people don't understand like you just set it. Whatever people are doing is to manage some insecurity. They have so when you're saying. Shave that beard. You might be saying dopey insecure about your Chin. Pointing me. I've tried GonNa Point A. Big It example! If like most I think we assume we. Host people bully people under the guise of helping. Sometimes you know, and I think a lot of people don't necessarily understand that whatever they wear or whatever you know like. She wears turtlenecks all the time. Maybe she's insecure about her. Neck I, Dunno. You like he's always a Hoodie. He's boobs. Yeah, exactly like there could be some reason that the person has chose that fashion choice that you don't know about, and you're basically asking them to have a different childhood or by saying take that metallica poster and you might be saying. I want you to have ten years of therapy that you've not had yet. You know why, because the guy? The guy that I used to date a guy who was very into slayer, and Metallica, and what's the other really cool? It's what you're trying to say. He was awesome is no, but it was like he would listen to what really loudly, and it was some kind of anger, thing or some kind of a most, not your mom's basement anymore. He was working emotional thing and I'm like you have to play that so loud. And then when he stopped play, it's allowed. His anger would come in different ways and I was like Oh. Yeah, you need that Metallica. You need to go on that run or do your pull ups to slayer. Yeah that thing that I had a note on. Was a solution to emotional problem like I didn't realize the whack a mole that I was disturbing turns out. You didn't WanNa talk through that, did you? Yeah, no, never got look I. Got Your Record Player. Yeah, just play. Don't go back to whatever that was and I. also you have to just put yourself in the other prisoners like I don't like it when someone tries to change me. You know it's 'cause. My thing is like no one has more notes on me than me like. Don't need someone else to not like me. I'm already doing that like. Tomorrow Yeah I'm good and I think because I think what we do is. We assume that people aren't insecure when we do that and we assume that our help is perceived the way we're trying to give it. Just helping you buying you this entire new wardrobe. It's like no, you're hurting my feelings. We think that we have the best idea and we're just getting to you. Here's what I'll say though it is Kinda hot when a guy tells you to wear a certain thing. Just got really quiet in here. As I took my drink of coffee I there. There's a difference between I've dated guys who I don't like the way I dress because. I guess they're not in name only. I guess they're not into Santa Fe lesbians, and that's their problem but when a guy is like. We're going to dinner. Put on that blue dress like. Hot when he leans. Like that is hot, but don't expect to do that all the time. Do you know what I mean because I've had guys complained that I dressed you sloppy. All other like you always have to wear pajamas like when we go to dinner and like yes, I do this. May being authentic and I want to be comfortable carrying this wallet around..

What about Chelsea boot for nothing? But I also I'm thinking about it if I couldn't change the other person I would change myself like I think. Is this weird instinct? We have humans when you meet someone that you have to become fraternal twins. I don't. Think. You have more in common than you actually do. You don't have to dress alike. Look alike like you know I mean. In my twenties I went from goth girl, the preppy girl like to whoever I was dating I would try to shape shift to be there dream, girl, or what I thought. They thought their dream girl was. Barbie in kidding it I really was if I couldn't change them. I would shape shifts. You know myself like all of a sudden. I would be into like fishing and snowboarding. You know like like whatever I think is going to make you stay shitty spy. In my twenty s every time you saw a completely different person and I think that we do it for like a false sense of intimacy. Because it does take a long time to get to know someone, but I think it's how we convince ourselves that we have more in common that we actually do, but I actually think you shouldn't have everything in common with the. Why would you want to date someone who was exactly like you? That's so narcissist. Where you're like, is said Oh. Woven belt got on my house. I have enough of those. But. I also I'm thinking about it. Because for a while I, was dating older guys I dated guys for a while, and you can't change them there to set in their ways. You can't and I and I'm I'm done dating older guys not only because of that just because I realized. You can't get. To listen to good music like that, that's something. That's the thing that I do tend to want to change if someone's tasted music. That's the one thing you actually have to really experience with the other personnel. Everybody thinks they have the best taste in music. Everyone's going through life. I've the best is of course, but I'm saying like. That's a deal breaker for me because it's on all the time and like older guys, music is always so creepy when you think about it like it's always like. She's got legs. Knows how to use them like what to walk like when you really think about that song, you're like Oh God like you're going on a road trip with an older guys and it's like. Girls Girls. Jesus. Music is wild. Women have to go write songs about their legs. Are made for walking, I. Put him on my legs Cycle of terrible I remember being dating older guy, and we were like on some road trip like the California or something, and it was just like. Hey, little girl is your daddy home. Is he going? Leave you follow who? Is. Jesus Christ. Service, That is the burs brings things like I. Don't Know Mon Five. You're like Oh God. Hey good. Is You daddy who? The nickname.

To great question. Before I give my answer I. Do want to admit that when I was in my twenties I. Did try to change every person I date.

I never I didn't know who I was. You know so. I just wanted to focus on changing the other person, but I would look boyfriends like projects you know, and it probably makes sense, but my my favorite toy. GROWING UP WAS MR POTATO head. So I think I brought that into my life later. I'm like Oh. We're going to take that mustache off and put on a pair of glasses and you're going to have this hat on like I thought that was my job as a woman was to change everything about the person you're rotating. It was like that's what Love was. Right to make you the best version of yourself which is so dumb? Because why are you just turning the person? You're in love with into more of a catch? Because someone else, boyfriends was ability. So sure. Like, my American girl doll, and you know so now. I see it totally differently because you know I don't.

Of course like witches like there's no like cool women that are like I'll come with you and help you and like she didn't have any friends. She's also sixteen in the movie. She's six when we watched it. I thought she was like thirty or something. You know when you grow up and you realize like Oh like I looked I looked her up in real life. Judy Garland was sixteen, working with all these guys and. The A I got was right because I found out that the director when she got the job told her to lose twenty pounds. which is such a specific amount of weight that is such a weird like how closely they must have examined her body to come up with the number twelve now like ten fifteen like twelve. We've measured your body and scrutinized it and twelve pounds. And then this is a true fact Google up. While filming the scene when Dorothy slaps the Lion Judy Garland couldn't stop giggling so the director Victor Fleming, took her aside and slapped her. What she nailed the scene in one take first of all love, true facts first of all. Why is this Guy Alive put me in a cage with Victor. Fleming this motherfucker. What are like? What is he dead? Yeah. Go Yeah, we go! We Go pee on his grave. I hate this person. That is crazy thing to do, but you bench and made a good point yesterday because Benton loves. He knows I'm proud right now, so he's not disagreed with me a lot. He loves wizard of Oz Beloved, but for different I mean I watched so much. The mom broke it and tell me that she lost the movie. So also by the way it. You did say. Those were uncles in the movie. Yeah, those people member. She wakes up and she's like new. Everyone's there, but you made the really good point about how the women nobody helped your. There's there's this fully magical wits comes out in a bubble and she's like, and you figure this out on your own. Because there's no girl power or not. Even if they're her uncles, they should be able to solve their own problems. Even more the reason like three creepy uncles chasing around in costumes like it's all weird. Her aunt is the wicked witch correct. When she wakes up, her aunt is like her total the villain, I don't know also. There's a lot of interesting stuff about in the making of the movie. A lot of the makeup work the Ransall. Makeup, like burned their skin like a lot of crazy shit when the tin man got clown lung, Hollywood what Benton was texting me about clown long to in the morning crown long is. This is our thing I learned this week. What's clown? It's a slang term coined by like a performer. Queens, it's whenever you breathe in so much powder talcum it yeah, it gives you emphysema, or like causes cancer in the long or something like that I believe that is I'm putting on I. Believe, Lorimer, Talk Free as I'm putting on powder to cover up. Is. You're not supposed to breed them powders, and when you bring them so much it just it sits in your lungs. You can't. You can't go anywhere. In the Tin Man. He got really bad. The Act, the act of the play, the Tin Man, the first guy had to quit, because his lungs collapsed because they were the silver paint it. It's aluminum. Breathing in metal over and over and over. That's very interesting. Hot Fact Hollywood's a fucking nightmare. That's what we're trying to nightmare beginning to fuck an ad. It's always been a nightmare. It's a cesspool sculpting swamp. But you were really into rewatching the wizard of Oz which which made me think about what movies can I watch these do I feel differently about now. Hold up and I realized the two thousand and Two Classic Film Crossroads Starring Britney Spears written by the legendary. Shonda rhimes and it. Is In adult movie. For adults. There are a lot of movies that we watch his kids. When you go back and you watch them now. You're like like dirty dancing. There's an abortion dirty dancing. The whole movies about an abortion crossroads the grow is literally sexually assaulted gets pregnant loses the baby, Britney, spears. Mom does not want her when she goes back and finds her. The other girls mom fat shamed her essential to a camp. This take place in the comedy community, probably and like I mean it's. This is the true Shonda rhimes. Okay ended about some of the podcasts all I got out of it when I was little, all I saw that movie was Rock and I was I fully just all Brittany Spears. Adult! Every Disney movie. It's like someone's Dad die like it's everything. We didn't see when we were kids, but that's just gets away. We have to keep moving.

You don't want to live in the fifties either if you're a fashion designer. Bathing suit when I go, they all look like fucking Mary Ann from Gilligan's island swimsuits. Right good reference, thank you. I was like Ginger Marianne like I didn't really know there's an it's never flattering like you why you look like a fucking station wagon. It's the equivalent. Maybe I got you a swimsuit and your. That's an apron I'm like I know. It's also I, just I. Don't understand why fashion you, we make progress. We figured out a way to make swimsuits that are actually flattering and we're like. Let's go back to the ugliest shit ones and that's supposed to be fashionable. This is why call bullshit on fashion all the time. There's no new ideas, or there's no sticking with something that worked. Why don't we just stick with a flattering swimsuit and do like a new color or like a new pattern? Why do we go back to this weird ass like roused like they look like like pregnancy genes maternal. That are just like all row shop like it's just not. I why our only choices for swimsuits now just like ugly hideous. I just think we should all wear wetsuits. What that mean flippers well okay I. Don't I don't know what your hobbies are. Swimming. Also how about? How about we figured out cute swimsuits, the solved. This is a problem that's been solved. Let's stick with the progress of it. How about you? Now? Your time and energy into figuring out men's swimsuits because I've never seen a guy in his swimsuit? Who didn't look like? He had a giant erection all the time. There's an there's air bubble. Kind ventilation issue or like puckering problem. Guys always look like they have a huge heart. On. What are we even call? It Boehner hard on erection. What we say Chubby talk about it. I'm just saying like. Why don't you put some time? We figured out females go work on the guys they're. They have not been mastered yet. Have we figured out? They're still putting belts on them. Benton. Do not do this unless you're ready. They're belting women's marches. You Really GonNa. Put a belt on a swimsuit. It better be a fanny pack because I need someone from my Teddy Graham. I hate an unnecessary accessory like a fucking button with no hall or glasses that aren't prescription or like pockets that are fake like when you're hanging out with the girlfriend like Hey, can you throw this in your pocket? And she's like either not real pocket there for show for show pocket costumes. This is just like so classic like extra. This is just what we do as human beings. We can't. We can't just be simple. Oh, and the worst is when you're on the front, but there's no doubt in the back. It's a half of L. for show. I think you're, GONNA. Posters on IT I. Don't I don't like the thing that bothers me I don't like going back to retro styles because it's maybe it's because we're going to retro news headlines I. Don't know what's going on. Maybe maybe it's the fact that every headline that we have now in the news could have happened in the fuck and early nineteen hundreds. It's like pandemic race issues like women not able to like people not being able to vote like why. Why are headlines and our clothing now going back to the early nineteen hundreds? I mean no answer, but do you know what's worse than belt? Good Segue Benton. Are you GonNa? Really Piss me off, yeah. I don't even get me started this my number, one pet peeve in the summer. It's summertime and I wanna tell you what I would not like to see if I see one American flag bikini I swear tug God. Okay I. It is never sat right with me. Why are the most patriotic people wearing an American flag over there but holes I know? I know I see you and I know at some point today you have farted on the American flag and I will not have it. It is wrong I do not believe the American flag should be wedged into your crevices while you're playing beer pong, okay, there's plenty of cute swimsuits out there. That are not American flag patterns that you can buy. Like, I mean imagine like Betsy Ross midst hand stitching a Thong. She did not sign up for this. She is rolling in her grave like my. My grandfather always said my grandfather. Fought in the war, he always, he said not only can. American flags not touch the ground. He said they had to be folded a certain way. So keep out of your folds this summer, please exactly literally I WANNA respect American flag at all times, but you're wearing it as pasties drunk on Jello shots, and it's making it really hard for me Puke on the American flag play.

"Rogue Secretary of State" Jocelyn Benson
"In two thousand eighteen Jocelyn Benson was elected as secretary of state in Michigan. It was part of a historic sweep. Where women were also elected to the governorship and to the Attorney General's office then the corona virus hit and Donald Trump went on the warpath personally attacking governor. Whitmer as she fought to get her citizens access to needed medical equipment. Well now he's also attack. Jocelyn calling her a rogue secretary of state for her plan to make sure all Michigan voters can apply to get an absentee ballot. This fall keeping them safe from the virus and ensuring everyone has a chance to vote. Jocelyn joined us to talk about the monumental importance of voting rights in the age of trump and the corona virus. This year we saw the. You're the woman. Two Point Gretchen. Whitmer Dana Nessel Jocelyn Benson Debbie Stamina and the list goes secretary of state of the Great State of Michigan. Four four my duties to invest in my abilities regard. Help me guys. The Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says. She sees nothing wrong with paper ballots. Secretary of state says the voter absentee ballot. Applications are great way for voters to vote in coming elections without risking their. How ahead of a planned visit to Michigan Tomorrow? President trump is targeting the leaders of the state on twitter president trump on Wednesday threatened to withhold federal funding to Michigan after the state announced that all of the states registered. Voters would receive applications for absentee ballots in the mail this year. Benton Secretary of State of Michigan on fighting every day to ensure that every voice is heard and every vote is counted. Sorry not sorry first of all. Thank you so much for doing this. I really really appreciate it. It's interesting because you have a job that I don't think a lot of people fully grasp what you do as secretary of State in Michigan. You're responsible for overseeing elections. But can you give my listeners? Really an overview of what that entails. And just broadly what? The job secretaryastate position in most states overseas democracy and that means everything from money in politics and regulating promoting disclosure of bat to the actual act of casting a ballot and making sure those votes are counted accurately protecting the security of the process. Anything that goes into ensuring that our democracy runs well flows lows through each state secretary of State and from your perspective. What is the biggest threat to our democracy? And you can do that. Broadly but you can also do that in Michigan. Well Yeah I always say that. A healthy democracy requires an engaged. An informed electorate and so in that way biggest threat is disengaged and misinformed electorate. I think you need both. You need everyone. Voting particular especially systems of underrepresented communities whose voices has historically been at the table and decisions. That are made them. But you also need to to be informed about all the aspects of an issue that they can make independent decisions about what's best for them. We're having our communities so to me really. You need people. Running the system secretaries of state and we need elected representatives who all kind of flow into that any neighbouring and encourage engagement and Commission. Of course the media as well but if you poke short on either of those two metrics those two pieces than democracy is threatened and. I think that's some of what we are seeing today where you have in some cases. Low turnout or disengagement or feeling of apathy or. My vote doesn't matter. My voice doesn't matter which is the exact opposite of which real and democracy or people not having access to accurate information about the decisions that are being made note decision makers that are making them can hold them accountable. We here and we've heard a lot about Michigan this cycle. So what makes it so important in this election besides the Electoral College? And how did it become a battleground? These chicken is a collection of voters that really reflects the entire country in many ways certainly in the Midwest and you've got a very diverse population we've got the largest concentrations for example Arab American voters in the country. We've got strong urban areas with unique stories and history like Detroit and Flint and high levels of communities of color growing Tino population and then a lot of the state is very rural. And so the racial demographics. The economic demographics -cation you have also right next to Detroit. One of the wealthiest per capita community in the country and they got in some ways integregation and many of the problems that afflict and having the country historically are reflected in Michigan. There's a great thing I saw when I personally hear when Michigan accuses the whole country gets a cold that in some ways is a bellwether state. Her a lot of different things is that because of the people because of history because of the community that can indicate how rest of the country like feeling going and attention on our state certainly over the past ten years when it comes to presidential elections. Really underscored that.

"Lot of exercise. Do not get a Husky. If you live in a one bedroom apartment in New York you know I think that you know I always encourage rescue. Obviously but you also just should know what dogs were bred to ridgebacks need to hunt. They have an incredibly strong prey. Drive squirrels mice rats. Birds like they have to go out of your way to train impulse control. That's the same thing with stathis. Rottweilers Dobermans. Is. They have incredibly Fast Reaction Time. So you have to slow down that reaction time with impulse control training. So that when you're walking down the street if it sees a squirrel it's not going to pull you into the street. Get hit by a car. You know you have to be able. You have to train your dog Jack. Russells have a tremendous amount of energy. You know my staffy sleep all day. Great Dane Sleep bigger. Dogs sleep a lot. You know Alternative sensory basically. What you're saying. Yeah I just. I just think I get very frustrated when people get super into breeds although when I fostered that dog that Sharpei Violet. I mean that dog what sharp as were bred for that was the most unique dog other seen it came from severe trauma but sharp as apparently pick one person and they locked to that person. German shepherds are Kinda like that do very territorial protective dogs are like that. But I you know. My stathis are protective of every person that I care about you know but daisy. I'm sorry Violet which flower dog violet. Tulip Rose Violet was all eyes on me like she was. She would just stare at me all day. Other people come in. She wouldn't even notice them or care. She doesn't want to socialize with anyone else. So Shar Pei's they're also very intensely bred and inbred and their flip upside down and they have horrible skin problems. You know so for me when I hear breeding also just here health problems you know. Because for the most part inbreeding breeding an inbreeding or synonymous. Because they're more obsession with a look of the dog that's correct also barrel chested dogs big dogs. If you have dogs are WanNa get a dog. That's over seventy eighty pounds. You should go to your vet and ask if the dog will need a stomach. Stapling surgery. My Frank had to have this dogs. That are that big Great Danes some German Shepherds. Some bigger boxers their stomachs are not attached to anything so they are prone to bloat which means if they have too much water or food their stomach will turn and they will die very quickly. L. O. L. Wow it's comedy this got really late so you have to know what you're signing up for before you get an animal any specific breeds. I mean I'm just saying I know I do. I mean I. I'm a staff person you know. Most people call them pit bulls. I don't like that word because it's become so pejorative recently. That's just my type. They're incredibly emotional. Incredibly snugly they're incredibly smart And loyal and just also Staffers in Greyhounds are the most abused. Animals Ah Dogs and so I also just when you get into rescue especially in Los Angeles because of the dog fighting there's so many and shelves Pommerin Yeah I love. Basset Hounds But yeah no I think for me. Identify strongly with Pit Bulls and Steffi's because I think they're misunderstood people think that service and they're not and I think I felt like that in your book on Night Oh I also. There's only one breed. I Don I strongly recommend and this is going to be very polarizing and if you already have this kind of dog I don't blame you. I'm jealous I love you but in rescue and with having seen what I've seen the smushed face dogs are so in Brad. I know they're so pug hugs. Well pugs French bulldogs. Every celebrity has a French bulldog now because they are so freaking cute with the giant alien ears. They're always Brad. They have horrible breathing problems. They have horrible heart failure problems. They all have to be delivered via Caesarean section because of how deform they are I know how cute they are. Trust me the bulldogs with their frequent stupid chins. That come out. I know I love them. And they're big teeth But those I wish they would stop reading. I also as someone who has a pick highly recommend pigs. Pigs are an amazing pets. There are a little bit high maintenance and they're very territorial which a lot of people do know about pigs they will you know a lot of people are like it came after my toddler wasn't biting your toddler pigs Much like people. They test you because they need to know their ranking so they need to know in the heard who's in charge so they will come and nudge on you and push you to see if you're gonNA push back to see who the boss's so it's essentially they need to know where they are in the pecking order and that's how they find out But pigs are kind of high maintenance. They need to have sunscreen on. They can't be in the sun. They don't have natural some protection. That's why they cover themselves in mud. They need to route so they do. You know cover themselves in mud. But they're also very vocal and smart at the best so smart emotionally smart. I know but they're also funny because they have high heels on your house is I was like you never got to meet my pig. I ninety but I had a lot of pigs growing up and they just so fun and very vocal like he would come and wake me up in the mornings like I mean. It's time it's eaten. Yeah and they're also dogs and cats sleep all day pigs do not doug what are we doing never curious? What do we do now? They look to look. Yeah Yeah someone asked me. Who's the nicest celebrity you've ever met Rosie O'Donnell was Super Nice League. So now she gave me. Advise on comedy was very very nice. I I'M GONNA SAY Will Ferrell Steve. Carell are the two nicest people on the planet the Tinus most gracious lovely will forte. Also very very nice. I feel like people in comedy have reputations for being like dark nasty mean and just wanted to let you guys know. Don't worry they're the best. 'cause Chevy Chase really turned out to be kind of a Dick and it was heartbreaking to a lot of comedy fans. That was an easy question to answer. Though wasn't it.

So if you're getting headaches will you should do is wake up at the same time every day during coffee the same time every day. It's not about what you eat. It's about eating something at the same time every day. So that's it took me ten years. It wasn't sugar. It wasn't gluten. Wasn't this for some people it might be but it was just whatever eating at the same time every day. That's why I'm so rigid about going to sleep in taking naps and all that kind of stuff. You've seen it 'cause it's like coffee. If I miss this by two minutes. It could mean a three day headache. So that's why I'm so hardcore about it. The eighth piercing totally worked for me It's a piercing the inside your ear. I'm sure you've seen me post about it betablockers. We talked about this on the episode. It's a little pill that you take. It's prescription that stops adrenaline. If stresses your trigger Eat real food and only fuck with people.

I just WanNa have won ten rolling his hair and like sexily putting it over his eye and expecting me to just not say anything. I was again audio.

Is this the right person? And my good enough is enough lear. They're gonNA cheat on me. That's that's maybe maybe just the human condition right always think about upgrading to always think about improving and changing unedifying etcetera. Should we have this conversation? Should we not was that healthy? Is this not? Should we have sex more? Shall we have sex less as this house?

Beautiful complexion thick asks Italian eyebrows. Even get a fake them. Whatever you want love and envision me on your vision board and everything will work out on your vision board okay. A guy asked. We're moving into relationship questions. A guy asked what turns a girl on in her thirties. That wouldn't in her twenties matching socks interesting question. I liked it. I like the guy is like. I'm into women in the thirties. Now I need to pivot. I gotTa Solution. Things got her. Yeah let me know just turned thirty. I'm into girls in their thirties. Finally he's sixty three years old. This man I'll tell you what I'm GonNa tell you. A couple and these are also kind of red flags. When I was in my twenties I used to kind of like when guys called their XS crazy. Because it meant they wouldn't get back with them. You know now. I realized that is a huge red flag. Never bad mouth yaks ever ever ever ever ever guy bad mouths their acts. That is to me dismissive. Rude also and then. Why did you dated for three years? Sweep e Book. Outta here and was she and then it's always. Oh my ex's crazy. My ex was a psycho like okay. Well you're the one the tune in honor. What did you think it's going to happen? I don't like that one side of the story calling a girl crazy that you lived with and proposed to. What does that say about? You know she was the only flawed Wabi Sabi ass thing in this relationship bucket. Yeah Shooting Lorena Bobbitt. You treat your xs with respect and dignity even if they work crazy even if they did ki your car you just say. We went our separate ways. It didn't work out not a match later. It wasn't a match I don't like I mean I remember being on a date with this guy. A couple of years ago and all of his ex's were psychos three axes. While she was a psycho she was crazy. Well you're the common denominator in all these three girls. What were you doing? What's up with you? This is a huge red flag to me and I have dated many guys that I'm sure. Describe me a psycho and crazy because I was setting boundaries standing up for myself being like no. It's not okay for that girl to text you with Nine High Heel emojis at two. Am Buck Outta here. I'm I'm sure a lot of guys because look I very complicated relationship with the crazy. I don't like being called crazy because to me. It just means you lack imagination and you have a limited vocabulary and virgo thing so unoriginal. Here's my thing I specially. It's just such a vague term. The only thing I hate more than being called crazy is being called a lot. That's what guys like say when they're flummoxed you're a lot you don't take the time to be specific with your insults. What a lot of. What's yes. I am a lot or maybe you're just a little item. Burn Burn See. That's the insult that I think of two years after he said I'm doing okay. I finally have a comeback. Your tiny your small map. No I don't like the word crazy. I don't like the word bitch either. Really complicated relations with the full vocabulary for the gays crazy crazy. No I'm saying I do think I do not blame men in their thirties and on for calling women bitches because they got it honestly. I think that that generation of people were conditioned to believe that any woman that stands up for themselves has self respect has self esteem. Doesn't take shit isn't a doormat is a bitch so when a man over thirty calls me a bitch. I usually take it as a compliment. Because I'm like oh I'm probably just taking care of myself. I can't even hear the word bitch negatively anymore. When someone under thirty says it to me I just know we're friends have you disenchanted. I'm going to over thirty says to me. I'm like oh I must be having a lot of integrity today indignity and I must have said something smart. That threatened this person embarrassing to call someone a bitch now and then think it's negative. It's just like now embarrassing on the I'll go no. You can't do that or no. You can't talk to me like that or no. You can't talk to that person like that and I'm sure I yeah. Put your shoes on. You're on a plane sir. Yes I'm that person and I'm sure they go home ago. That fucking bitch at the airport told me to put headphones on but all of us were like.

Juventus 2-0 Inter Milan - Hosts go top in stadium empty because of coronavirus
"Events is against into Milan. Went ahead today. In front of an empty stadium. It was surreal experience. But one. So you'd be comfortable in the by two goals to know I Ramsey scoring just after the break in the second half and a lovely go from powder Bala night at Uva to intern nail. That means now is you've ain't on nine points. Clear of INSA inferred they also leapfrog. Lancia back to top spot. This was weird when it boys just way to watch him. We understand why this has take place in this manner but for such a big game to have such a strange feeling as a spectator it was kind of difficult to renew is going to be odd. Given the conditions out of the game is going to be played under. I don't think we figured it'd be district and especially a game of this magnitude with these two clubs are going to be the two biggest clubs in Italian footba battling out for what may eventually be the title and it just. It felt empty literally lead the felt empty especially because into Milan. Who simply off-again listen. I thought the oddity of the game would plant and Tucson Skim the fact that dot its interim and they were simply over. They gave us nothing to give veggies nothing to be worried about nothing for anybody to cling a hot. There's going to be some kind of a title shelter. This event is by far the better. The two dominated an ungodly three points. And really not nothing really as the report and to give you an idea of how odd this was. It is so difficult to understand that every touch on the ball you could hear on the microphone. Every shot on target everything that was happening in the field. You can actually here which is not something that we're used to and whenever there was shot on goal you're expecting some sort of reaction from my crowd that was never there and it's almost as if oh that was a goal scoring opportunity but nobody cares. Nobody cares because nobody there. I would also say it's interesting for me that Saturday. He has a difficult time. Putting out. Deroga- you Wayne and renown out on the field at the same time. When he does seem to work well together sometimes eight Wayne dropping underneath which is not a natural for him but he does at times and then it just goes to the wide area and then he receives the bowl there. And there's rotation on Rondo has freedom to go wherever he wants to. And it seems to work well indications that he has used. I'm not sure as to why he won't commit himself to try to do this more consistent because a team that struggles to create opportunities today we saw from development. That's taking Gol- shows you. How special player. He can be hasn't always been this and doesn't always show this but it's not only the finish is the first that then could where he gets around actually young and then on the one to once it gets into a position where he plays in the ball once again. National Young has an opportunity to make a tackle and he cuts back to the outside and finishes the way that he did. You have to say to yourself. This guy can be useful to you. Not just twenty minutes at a time but ninety minutes at a time but it doesn't always happen for him. It doesn't always happen for Saturday. Let's bring democracy into the conversation. Got Into Milan. Be So disappointed that they didn't really put up a fight today. Yeah undeniably they will be and you know you talk about the put up a fight you can look at it on a binary way what's going to where either they do. What what he says he wants to do. When the aggressive and pressing midfield work hard? They didn't do that or the other thing you could do is. Hey how about you put the guys out there who can actually pass and create I e Christian Erickson and again we see this guy. Come off the bench. And he doesn't give the impression that he is a Colin type player which then begs the question of. Why did you spend all this money on him? He's supposed to give you something different. He could have done something. Possibly if you've figured out a way to to go and play him but I also think we have to give credit to you both games against enter this season. They played really really well have not played well for much of this season but they really raise their game when it mattered was exceptional on. Lukaku and Saturday to give him some credit. I know that alley would love it. If you've got more deba- by I thought dropping Jansher Benton core was was a big call and and one that really paid off as well and we saw what this you've in midfield theoretically could be and hasn't been for much of the season I mean surround. The title race gone. Well I mean they have a game to make up then becomes six points and then but they still have to go win it. I wouldn't write them off completely at this stage but there's no question that their chances of a trunk down

Mud there's more to the story than this sitting in the intersection between Sunset Boulevard and Benton way this blue sign advertises the foot clinic back in an unassuming strip mall one of the money that you can find in this car. Centric city with a Navy blue background to cartoons grace as the sign on one side a happy and healthy foot and on the other hand bandaged up sat foot holding on for dear life to a pair of of crutches every day and night assign slowly rotates on US access and here it's where the mystique surrounding its it's existence begins to make sense. You see this is one of the busiest intersections in the city and as scores drive by on their way to work important meetings a date or to simply hang out with friends. The sign has kind of become a sort of fortune teller for residence. If when when you drive by you see too happy foot that could be taken as a sign that you'll have a good day or be successful at a particular event or a goal that you have coming up or maybe you should say yes to something on the other hand if you stumble upon the sad fort while that's bad news for you from the Urban Tarot card reader.
