"If it's not BMI, then what is it? Like, um, how do we figure out exactly how much fat we will not allow? Underlying that very question is the sense that fat is something that we need to tame in some way. And so it's like, but we haven't, okay, people can accept that BMI may not be the best scientific method for figuring out how much fat is simply not allowable. But they do have nevertheless the fundamental belief that we will find the right tool for that problem. Yes. Oh, that's so well said. And it's such an important point because I do see people agreeing that BMIs flawed and problematic and they're like, well, actually waste circumference is a better. Actually, body fat percentage. You know, they want to have some other way, like you said, of determining how much fat is quote unquote too much or bad. Instead of questioning the whole premise and the whole assumption that fat doesn't need to be tamed or controlled in the first place. Instead of opening up to that possibility. I did a presentation once several years ago in which one of the audience members stood up and asked, well, what should we tell fat people? If we take your research seriously, well, what do we tell? And my response was, why would we tell fat people something different about how to be healthy than we would tell thin people? Why should people have different messages about the best way to become healthy? Seemingly, will be want to focus on is giving people the tools to eat healthy and to move their body in a healthy way. And that should be enough for all of us. And take care of our health and all kinds of other ways too. Going to the doctor or getting access to care and getting enough sleep and all of those other things too. Right. So obviously, there's more to a full program of wellness than just those two things. But thinking about the kinds of things that we often expect, maybe doctors or nutritionists to tell people, that is where I was sort of targeting my comments sort of like we can tell people, regardless of their size, that if you can figure out how to eat in a way that is healthy for your body and also move your body, get plenty of water as you were mentioning also rest. Then these are all good ways of being healthy. Yeah, and that we can take care of ourselves in those ways, independent of size, size has nothing to do with it. And yeah, we should really be giving the same evidence based medicine to people all across the size spectrum instead of saying, this evidence based medicine is good for you if you're in this lower category of weight, but then after a certain point, you don't get evidence based medicine anymore. You just get, I don't know, wishful thinking. Yeah. And I feel like there's just so many problems. There are so many problems that we're trying to address here. But it does make me wonder, what would it take in order to be able to convince the mainstream of the medical establishment? Because there are those individuals who are within the health at every size movement, people like Linda bacon, who are doctors, or at least my B PhD, some people who are MDs as well, who are well aware of the fact that it is possible for people to be healthy at any size. But that's not necessarily where the mainstream of the medical establishment lands right now. And I wonder what it would take in order to be able to move the needle. I really do too. I mean, I think about this a lot because I do presentations to fellow dietitians, other health professionals, and see the questions that come up for people. And I think it really is, I think it has to go upstream. There's that Bishop Desmond Tutu quote of like, it's not enough to just keep pulling people out of the river. We have to go upstream and find out why they're falling in. Exactly. I feel like it's that. We have to figure out because I think especially when people are really far along in their careers as health professionals. I think the more time that goes by and the deeper and deeper they get into this medical model of quote unquote obesity, the harder it is to shift gears and to change course. But I think if we can start targeting these changes at the training level or at the educational level before people even go into practice, I think that's would be a huge shift that if we could train people in a health at every size framework to start. And so they don't even have to go out there and practice in this weight normative way. They could actually start practicing from a health at every size perspective. Like how amazing would that be? That would be amazing. And it would be incredible if we could get that instituted at some form of don't really like to use this term, but cultural competence. Some type of equivalent to that, which is the idea that we need to know about more than just how digestion works. We actually need to know how to work with people and we need to figure out what are some of the best strategies for engaging different populations and health at every size could be one of the models that could be instituted. That would be incredible. And so I look forward to you being able to do that. The small scale. I know. I hope my career can make some small dent in that, but I think all of us working together at all these different levels is really what it's going to take. And I'm very heartened by the fact that a lot of the people who listen to this podcast are actually dietitians and training or medical students or therapists in training, like people who are coming up in this world and getting the health at every size messages now. They're listening to this podcast now while they're going through their training. And that's really cool. You know, and I get sometimes people asking me, how do I deal with a cognitive dissonance of the fact that I now know this information, and yet I'm still having to get trained in this weight normative model. And that's really hard. That sucks. For people to have to navigate that in their own training. But yeah, I think if we can, the more people who can start teaching this stuff at the undergraduate and graduate level, the more people won't have to go through that cognitive dissonance. Yeah, that's actually great. It's very helpful too. It's wonderful to be able to have an understanding that change is possible and that, of course, we always want to move to the big R revolution, right? Instead of like, how do we get to the revolution when we've completely removed BMI? It's like, well, I do believe that it's possible for us to get there eventually. But I think what you've stated it is really beautiful in that we do have to start a little by little, like small scale. People being able to read works that are against the BMI model, people being able to hear podcasts or maybe taking trainings, like just I think that you're right, like over time that a critical mass of informed individuals that's developed. Yeah. And then there's also the larger piece of the culture, right? Which is, I think that's the harder ship to turn around, but that's also if we can even start people young, like in the womb, right? Because now there's babies being body shamed for their size and put on diets..

"Even the anxiety and the despair and the depression, that's part of the curriculum, too. That is part of the work recognizing that we have to grieve our losses and that there's healing in that, you know, if we grieve and are able to be there in that suffering and don't deny it. The rich role podcast. It's no mystery that humanity is currently grappling with all kinds of problems, a global pandemic, climate change that is quickly becoming more and more experiential, mass species extinction. And so many other dire calamities that humanity can feel like it has lost its moral center. Well, Jane Goodall, the famed primatologist and climate activist, a woman and global icon, who now at 87 has devoted her life to better understanding our natural world and to preserving its majesty, she has a few thoughts about all of this. Thoughts that I think might surprise you, thoughts that don't revolve around what you might suspect like cynicism or anger or pessimism. But instead are all about hope, hope marked with action, of course, but hope really underscored by things like empathy and optimism. So how is it that she can maintain hope in the face of humanity's self destructive trajectory? I mean, what is hope even mean? And why is it desperately incumbent upon all of us to cultivate hope as a strategy to best evolve as humans and a global community? Well, today's guest, Douglas Abrams, he wanted answers to these questions. He needed answers. So he sought out Jim Goodall. He spent countless curious hours with her, culminating in this wonderful new book that he co wrote with Jane called the book of hope, which is this really wonderful and intimate look into not only the nature of hope, but also into the heart and into the mind of a woman who is really truly revolutionized how we view the world around us. This person who has spent her lifetime fighting for that world's future. Longtime listeners may recall my first conversation with Douglas. He's a former Stanford classmate of mine. A literary agent and editor and an author himself who joined the podcast several years ago to discuss the first in his global icon series of books, a book called the book of joy, which went on to become an instant New York Times Best Seller, that beautifully synthesizes a series of conversations between Douglas, the Dalai Lama, and Bishop Desmond Tutu on the nature of human happiness and suffering. Well, today he's back. He's done it again with Jane on the subject of hope, and it's coming right up, but first. We're brought to you today by my go to all in one supplement. You know what it is already? I know you know. It's EG one by athletic greens. I have always hated keeping up with multiple pills and potions, all kinds of supplements, proliferating in my cabinet, which is why I love AG one because it's just one thing. One thing with all the best things, giving me more energy, optimizing my digestion, keeping my immune system in check. I've been taking this stuff for years and years and years. I put it in my morning smoothie or when I'm out kind of cruising around, I have those travel packs with me and I just.

"This is morning edition from NPR news I'm Sarah mccammond And I'm Steve inskeep This next story takes us to a country that is deeply divided by race even after Bishop Desmond Tutu he was one of the leaders in the fight against apartheid decades ago More than a quarter century after its end the journalist Andrew Harding finds a country divided between black and white rich and poor urban and rural And indeed when you move into the cities in South Africa there are plenty of success stories This is still a very vibrant country and it's possible to get out of bed and travel around the country and feel very optimistic about it But it is it's that land of deep deep contrasts and deep inequalities Andrew Harding reports for the BBC across Africa He also writes books including one about a double murder almost 6 years ago in a rural area It is called these are not gentle people In a South African region called the free state a few dozen white farmers own land black people work on them as laborers One day two black men who went by the names of Simon and Samuel showed up at the farm of a white man He says they wanted a rob him Others think they were demanding unpaid wages What is certain is that the farmer pressed an alarm button summoning help from white neighbors About 50 white farmers men and their sons came charging across the fields in their pickup trucks Most of them armed and they went and chased and hunted for these two black men and they found them pretty quickly and they arrested them essentially in the corner of a field and then over the next hour or two proceeded Very methodically and very brutally to beat those two men How severe was the beating The beating was severe enough to give both men multiple injuries all over their bodies and particularly traumatic head injuries so much so that both men lost consciousness both men were then thrown into the back of a police car which then drove for a few hundred yards over a bumpy field and then onto a smooth road into town where they were met by an ambulance transported to a hospital and then over the course of the next few hours were both pronounced dead So we have a kind of citizen's arrest that becomes an incident of beating and torture ends with police having custody of the men but they're dead at the end What did authorities do with this set of facts Well there was almost immediately an outcry a sense that this surely was a racial murder and that the white farmers involved should be arrested and put on trial as quickly as possible But it was almost impossible for the police initially to make any headway because of a kind of wall of silence from the white farmers who were led to believe that they could get away with this The white farmers most of whom were related felt that it was in their best interests to say nothing And it took months for the police to break that silence How did they do that finally Well what happened in particular was that they managed to hack into the mobile phones of some of the younger farmers they unlocked some WhatsApp messages and WhatsApp recordings in which some of these men shortly after the attack boasted and described what they've been doing And with those confessions if you like they went and arrested a number of the farmers and then essentially cut a deal with some of those farmers who'd basically been found guilty by virtue of what they did left on those WhatsApp messages And they ended up putting 6 men on trial whereas about a dozen men in all had been proven and eventually admitted to taking part in the assaults That sounds like a pretty devastating case against those who were put on trial and they were put on trial in a system that is led by a black majority government What was the result This is where the story showed the institutional rot because at every stage of the investigation And then in court everything let Simon and Samuel down And in the end all of the farmers were acquitted of murder they were found guilty of grievous bodily harm of aggravated assault but none of them was given any jail time whatsoever The problem for the prosecution is that the forensic evidence which was at the heart of the prosecution's case was flawed the original doctors who inspected Simon and Samuel's bodies may basic errors of fact and of medicine and the whole chain of evidence was contaminated by a mixture of incompetence and managerial and institutional failures which enable the defense to pick apart The prosecution's case and particularly the extraordinary matter of law which was brought up by the defense could it be that the two men died not from the beatings that rendered them unconscious but from the fact that they spent a few minutes in the back of a police car being driven over a bumpy field On that basis the judge found the men not guilty of murder Meaning that incompetence left a lot of room for reasonable doubt Exactly Why did you call the book These are not gentle people This was actually a phrase that emerged from one of the key characters the wife of one of the accused who used this phrase to me these are not gentle people She just said to me one day talking.

Five one side stumbles men. Grab some women down jim. Please calm down. I've never seen the side of you. This rage please be more professional rain. Itself rebuke jolly stop. Yelling grab left us in nineteen twenty eight. I mean before. We let you go though. Because jim lampley has said he said look nothing is beneath me and because you are again olympic games you've done i don't know a record number of telecasts. You are very polished. I would like for you if you would plummet with us for second and help us understand what it would sound like. If jim lampley were on the nbc ultimate slipping slide games that have now been canceled by a an outbreak of explosive diarrhea. If you forget. I mean maybe maybe you don't know for sure that when i was at eighty sports in the nineteen seventies and i had begun as the first sideline reporter on college football telecasts. Which a lot of people regarded as an absurd concept to begin with and something that would certainly go away and of course we all know it never has but the next step was to go and do all of the crazy offbeat wide world of sports events that every other name commentator on the staff had done once and now as the twenty five year old apprentice kid i was going to have to go through four five and six times like the log. Roller like the wrist wrestling like the oriental world of self defense like the demolition derby out on long island and i did all those events. I was the only one who had to do them multiple times. Where you know. While hall of fame veterans like the gifford and jackson and mckay all giggled about the fact that i had to go back but for the risk wrestling by times but the bottom line is on. The ain't scared us live inside his background. Doing exactly that kind to stuff. And if i had to i could fall right back into so in your imagination. Just what are you if you're bringing us in again your reporting live and right before your set to broadcast the ultimate slip and slide championships. Someone says in your ear set. What is actually happening jim. I'm sorry there's been an explosive diarrhea. Outbreak need to cancel the event. It's going on after the olympics. So i'm just. I'm we're going live to jim lampley. So what would that sound like in your imagination. Well i can't imagine exactly what it's going to sound like on the air. But i can certainly tell you the internal conversation and the internal conversation. John had with myself more often than once is. How did it come to this. I am and where did i lose control of my path in such a way that i am. Now you're by the way. I covered the most famous Sort of digestive malfunction ever when a young woman named julie moss collapsed in the last couple of hundred yards of The third ironman triathlon. But i wanted to take place on the big island of hawaii and all her bodily fluids evacuated her body in front of our cameras. Right there on the ground on the big island of a why i covered that as the live was on tape but of course i had to do it as a lot. So i've had this experience and And i guess you'd have to go back and pull out the tape and see what lampley said about julie moss to to know how i covered it. But let's just say that an entire sport That you might not have predicted bolted into the forefront of public knowledge as the result that moment in the iron man is now a multi billion dollar global enterprise. Jim lampley broadcasting. Thank you jim before you leave here because you're you guys are weirdos you dan patrick. You're all weirdos. Do not ravage yourself on this. It was purposely misleading. Make you look like something less than an unbelievably polished broadcasting robot. That doesn't make any errors. We were happy to throw a bunch of butterflies in your face to rattle. You're going to you got a moment. Poetry story yes. Of course okay. It's dead one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and suddenly because a bizarre coincidental circumstances i become the primary dues actor. Kcbs tv in los angeles. Anchoring the biden. Eleven o'clock news. Every and i was about Maybe three or four months into that when the inevitable consultant came to the station. Talk about the newscast. And i'm thinking okay. He's going to tell me how. I did in my interview with the two presidential candidates which is going to tell me how i did in my interview with bishop desmond tutu and instead he says to me you know you never seem to make a mistake on the air and i said yeah you know thinking maybe that's good and he says well you know i i'm not gonna tell you to purposely make mistakes but there's an element of your performance that looks in human to a lot of viewers it it probably even discomfort some bureau because it all lays looks as though you are some polished videotape of yourself instead of the real live and i looked at my said. Are you telling that. I should purposely make mistakes and he said well. That's not exactly what i'm saying. But i'm saying maybe there's a way to relax yourself in such a way that you're not always as absolutely on point and perfect as you seem to be and i said you know what i honestly am not sure i can do that. I mean for whatever reason got chernoff. I got fired as a news anchor jim. We're leaving all of that in because it's such a great story store. He got five great. The poll. guillermo lebatardshow. Are you surprised at all the jim lampley fired for being too perfect and refusing to be anything less than two perfect shitty ultimate once once. I recognize what was going on into local news.

"Being a woman and going through the world. You know we spend a lot more money just to keep ourselves safe because we grow up in a culture that says you have to keep yourself safe because we hold violators accountable. We don't think of misogyny is a cultural problem. We think of Violent accident races submerged. Sexism is a bad individual right like a rotten apple. Not we don't care to look at the systemic problems and so i think that i remember years and years ago Bishop desmond tutu saying rape should be a dinner table conversation which i think most people don't want us here But someone like me really takes to heart which frankly isn't really easy on your family when you decide to talk about rape the dinner table but that doesn't mean you sit there and you described graphic violence that sexual. It means you have conversations about people's dignity and their rights to safety or consent or Speech like free speech right. Because so often in fact when women are trying to claim those rights the responses to to threaten them with physical violence and rape. And so i think that one of the issues in homes that are heterosexual and have an ice and they said very specifically because i think there's a particular dynamic in heterosexual marriages That tend to be factor. Factories of gender Is the way we think of masculinity and femininity so we have also in. My house had the locking the doors conversation. The conversation that i remember at whole like with my husband after twenty five years we met when we were very young. We've lived together. We grew up together like in our young adult life. And i remember. I was going to out for a walk one day to. I literally like i had on leggings and sneakers and i took with me my headphones and a pair of sunglasses. And he's like how are you gonna with headphones and sunglasses and now it's like people will leave me alone. Hopefully like i don't want anyone to make eye contact with me or talk to me. And so i use these to block block them out. And so i went out that day and believe it or not on that exact day. I was followed by police officer on his motorcycle for an hour. And so i went out of my way on my walk to go up some stairs where he couldn't go with the motorcycle and that man drove around and found me in the other area. I was sitting on a on a bench and he parked his motorcycle in front of me to start a conversation and it didn't feel safe.

There's no need advertiser huge talked about talked about four and it's good good My first one is rev dot com read on com. Rav a dictation service Let's imagine you leave a meeting and you want to dictate A follow up email. You will describe your phone. Open up the revs. Aft- dictated now. You can do the same thing with siri but ravitch's really reliable Person on the. There's a human being you're actually dictates. Transcribes it if it's longer form it's probably better like if you wanted to Dictate an article or you think. There's a really good idea for an article you can dictate. Let them do it. And then come back and modify edited. But i think it's a great time saver it's about a buck and a quarter a minute so it's pretty reasonable. Chances are you're not going to have really long things you're going to be doing in there. But dot com is one of my favorite tools. Love it my next one. That i doubt a lot.

They're called shorts and they're less than a minute and but they have to be vertical. So you can do a short for youtube and also repurpose it on instagram. Or or one of the other verticals sites. But you need. You need a tripod. if you're going to do any kind of stuff like that.

"Okay? I'm 20 years of age. I'm the shop stirred in Dunnes stores Henry Street in Dublin. And I receive an instruction from our union called Mandate that we're no longer tto handle South African produce because of paradise. We knew very little about South Africa. We didn't know how to pronounce or spell apartheid. But we followed the union instruction. We went around the store to find out what was South African. It was mainly out span oranges and grapefruits and inform management that we were going to follow this instruction. We were immediately put on cash registers on. I remember sitting there myself. Mary Manning on Liz D. C. And this woman coming up with two out spying grapefruit in her basket. And we looked at each other and we prayed that she wasn't going to come to one of us. What she did. She came to marry Manning and Mary Manning refused tto handle South African produce on was suspended. We came out on strike. And that was the first day the 19th of July 1984 at a quarter past 12 on a Thursday and I remember it well that the dawn stores anti apartheid strike started. As I said, we knew very little about South Africa. We knew there was discrimination, but we didn't know what sort of discrimination it was about. We were a few days on the picket line on a man called Nimrods jacket came onto the picket line and he started telling us about wash was South African on what was a parasite all about. He was an exile from South Africa and he'd been living in Ireland for about 15 years. And he told us what it was like to be a black person living in South Africa. You couldn't sit on the same seat as a white person. You couldn't use the same toilet. You had to be out of the cities and the towns that white people lived in by a certain time. You had to have a passbook to leave her township. And he describes what a parasite was like in one of the best ways that I can describe it. It was like a pint of Guinness. The majority of the people living in South Africa were black on the minority wer Weiss. Unlike a pint of Guinness, the white sat on top of the black And because of Nimrod And what he was telling us about South Africa. That changed for us personally, it no longer became a union instruction. We were never ever going to handle South African goods on till apartheid had gone. And freedom for everybody in South Africa had been achieved. Strike went on, a union official told US may take a couple of weeks. We were six months on strike. When we got an invitation to meet Bishop Desmond Tutu. He was coming from America going over to Oslo to pick up a Nobel peace prize. And he said, I'd like to meet the Dawn Star striker's in London. So as we did being shop workers We got in the car and we drove and took the ferry over to London to meet Bishop Desmond Tutu, who's about collect Nobel Peace Prize. And I remember being there. And it was the first time that we really had any mate Media interest on DH. The cameras are there on this small little man comes into the room. People that know me know I'm not a very huggy person. So the first thing he does is common holds off and I'm like, Oh, God. And then he told off on DH media how proud he was of us and how brave we were. And for somebody like that, to say that it just brought more passion to us than we ever had before. And he told us that he would go back to South Afghan. He would tell the ordinary workers Thie order black workers in South Africa that they went on their own that their wass people from other countries that cared enough to do something. About a paradise. That was in December of 84. We were six months on strike. We went through a long winter. And then as the first anniversary of the strike happened. We were getting very little support from the government from a lot of Irish people on from the trade union movement, but we stuck to our guns. Bishop Desmond Tutu asked us to come to South Africa to see for ourselves what parasite was all about. And we had no money to go because we had earned When we were working about £85 week. We were now on £21 a week. The union would only give us the £1000 on the trip is going to cost about 1000. So one night in Dublin City. We got a cz many supporters as we could together, and we went around every pub in Dublin City, raising funds for that trip, and we raised £7000 in 1985. To go on that trip to South Africa. That was the support we got from ordinary working class people in Dublin. Trip was organized on we headed off to Heathrow on DH was about to board the plane, for sure, with plain to Heathrow or in Heathrow to go to South Africa on we were stopped and held for a number of hours there. They wouldn't let us on the plane because the South Africans Howard's he's Wouldn't allow the plane to land. Eventually, through negotiations. We boarded the plane. To be told afterwards that the captain had told all the passengers that we were the reason the plane had been delayed for so long. We were all separated. We weren't allowed to sit together so you can imagine the atmosphere. We were quite terrified on remember. We're only 20. The youngest of us was 17. The oldest was 24. The rest of us were all 20. We arrived in Yan's Motor report, which is now by the way, called Oliver Tambo Airport. On DH. When we arrived on each side of the tarmac, there were soldiers. We thought this was normal. We arrived in to get a passport's checked on soldiers came and asked us where we the group from Ireland. We said we were Immediately. It was about 40 armed soldiers around us with machine guns. We were escorted upstairs. We were held under armed guard for eight hours. We did not know what was going to happen to us because we had heard stories of people disappearing one cigar to South Africa. Answered. African Black South Africans themselves period. Eventually we were informed that we were going to be sent back on the same plane. But why We were there for eight hours. We couldn't even go to the bathroom where two women soldiers would come in with us and the door would have to stay open. When we got eventually back on the plane. We were disappointed that we were leaving. But one sense we were relieved that we were safe. And going up the steps of the plane. I never forget. When I got to the top of the stairs. I turned around. I put my fist up and I said we will be back when said Africa is free. And Sandra, one of the strikers pushed me in and said, Get into the plane when we arrived back in the Heathrow Now we left on a Monday at 12 noon on this was now Wednesday at 7 A.m. in the morning. None of our families knew where we were at all. So you can imagine the worry when we arrived in Heathrow. We were told by the captain that all passengers must remain seated that the police were bored in the plane. We looked at each other and said, Oh, God, Here we go again. We're going to be trying out Britain as well as everything else. But we weren't We were escorted into a press conference. 11 workers, 10 young women and one young man, and we're in a press conference with all of the media from the UK, the Irish media, the press media asking us What happened? What was going on? And we were they. There was a headline saying the most dangerous people in the world on that was the dawn star of strikers. When we got back from South Africa in London and the mass picket was organized now up to that moment, there was very little support for the strike. There was a lot of lip service page but not real support on that day, the Saturday There was nearly 7000 people on that picket line. You couldn't walk up or down Henry Street for the amount of people that were there supporting us, So thank you to the South African apartheid government for kicking us out. As I said the strike continued on then in October of 1985 The most amazing thing happened as well. We were invited over to address the United Nations in New York. Can you imagine shop workers picketing outside John stores day in day out and they want the U. N wants us to talk to them. So I go over on DH colleague Michelle Gavin comes over with me. And when I got to do my speech, I was terrified in South Africa. But I think I was nearly more terrified in this because there were old people in suits and you know But I would say posh people rich people..

O. is the home of Evanston's virtual fourth of July parade of the behind the scenes begins at eleven around eleven thirty the actual parade as of two PM and that's on July fourth right here on the BCG is he a radio that image is gonna be done will it be on on the web or just on Facebook live and you know sorry I didn't hear that still in here our he's gone Hey welcome back to the show you're listening to click that little Turkey and Terry Campbell and I'm going to wait here this is important but early next week Jimmy don't Hey and and I have some Jimmy Valentine play out here in just a minute but in the meantime Smith pulls in is a Canadian portrait and lifestyle photographer on Samantha's website Samantha pulls in dot CA you will find the following if you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor bishop Desmond Tutu Samantha how are you I fell I'm great thanks for having me on the show it's it's it's wonderful to see you again at least I'm I'm lost in your website right now Samantha these photos are gorgeous she does I love photography so you guys just don't mind me I'm going to but so I I need to ask you this want one night when I saw that the other day I had this thought and I'm I'm doing I'm advising an international and and politics issues for a for a congressional campaign here in the states and and they're they're very they're very activist focused out so we've seen major advertisers pulling ads from Facebook over its unwillingness to address hate speech can you be creative and in the public in the public eye or on the public stage at this point in our history and not take a stand absolutely it's it's critical that especially if you have a platform to create a platform or any business platform that you are vocal about your stance right now during the black lives matter movement and do your best to support the black community I think it's absolutely vital at this time okay I don't think that there's a way to avoid it and there's no reason to avoid it at all yeah I'm how long you been in business you need to start out yeah yeah I have been in business very part time for the last seven years and I am just starting to transition from part time freelance into really making my photography business my main focus okay obviously a long process and it doesn't happen right away by that's where my mindset is at the moment so what what kind of dues to you have to pay as as a young photographer two it just just to break into into commercial photography and an or ARC photographer Yuri or any any aspect of photography commercial yeah I think that I'm one of the challenges of starting out in the industry is you trying to stay true to your value and obviously you need to work on building a portfolio and connect to the local community and but you also want to make sure that you're not selling yourself short so there's a very fine balance between are doing volunteer photography or the trade yeah but lesser paid gigs on its use in but also to stay true to your it's your worth so I think that there's a balance in the start and you kind of have to choose opportunities that you think will bring your portfolio value and that align with with things that you're passionate about what it what it did advertising years ago yeah I did did an ad campaign for for a it was long and line automotive and and he he wanted me to do an illustration for his logo of of lions and I remember I had gone I had gone to school for for advertising in our tent and and I had I had several years of experience and and I just remember him nickel and diming me about every aspect of the campaign including my value as as as an advertiser right L. R. as an advertising person and so I I'm I'm sure you must run into that that you know somebody somebody wants photography for sale wedding and you quote them a price and they come back and say well I've got a cell phone I could do for nothing the wars let's see what do you what do you sure English is not pay bills and of course there are moments when exposure is important but you have to make that decision and own those decisions if you decide to go into a job that but not for talking Tammy in bill's wedding or whatever you know exactly talking first take a really long time to come up with their rates higher composed of a lot more than just the time you spend writing the photos so I think people misunderstand that and there's a lot that goes into the job so you know over the years I've sort of been able to stand my ground a lot more and argue with me then they get less product generally get less service good for you because it's hard it is it is challenging I'm still learning especially as I want to break into this and do it a lot more frequently are you want to take everything that you can get but you also can't sell yourself short so that's been a big lesson in but by the way we've we've talked with some of the top photographers in the world on this show and they they run into that very same thing if it happens at every single level and and I I think I think a lot of people a lot of people who aren't educated in the arts you know they they they say the same thing about writers and illustrators and painters and what have you but but I think I think because because cameras are so ubiquitous in our society that everybody thinks that they can take a great photograph and there's so much more that goes into it absolutely and I also think that it's it's the experience that people are paying for with you I mean you are your brand so low pay for you as a person and your personality how you make them feel that is invaluable so that's what I think also allows you to stand out as a photographer in an age where everyone is taking photos and everyone can camera but not everybody knows how to create that experience aren't you know either so true as someone who's been in front of the camera for thirty years I can tell you it's a really good photographer will get great stuff out of me you know why is it that you know of someone who just has a bad attitude or they're not engaging with you at all I can think of it a lady who shot me for a playboy won't say her name but I hated shooting with her age and I didn't feel pretty I didn't feel like I was doing the right thing or you know a good photographer will get great poses great faces great everything from even from a wedding photo and I'll tell you what you couldn't pay me enough to edit photos it's the worst I mean I I do it at home I have to do it for myself but it also works it's tedious work but it is rewarding and especially when you can connect with the images based on clients were and your time shooting them but I don't think people think about that afterwards after the shows and we use at home you have hundreds of photos that you're going through and getting access and get and this one's out of focus and that when they made a face yeah yeah indeed indeed do you do you think do you think that the that that school of the arts school Dave you enough skills are offered enough skills for you to go into business Sir or did you have to kind of learn all that on your own yeah I you know not to to put down my program but I do think it's a very common scheme that art schools don't really dive into the business side of things and I've been very fortunate to have worked with photographers on location we did have an internship component so I feel like that experience really helped me learn about the business side but there's a lot that they don't dive into and it is up to you I think in the end and that's what I've done is to connect with photographers in the community who have been in business for a long time and you can sort of show you the ins and outs but if you're constantly learning and there's a lot there's a lot to know so I think that it could be better I I it's really are sort of it's it's it's a mantra monumental information gap we really only got just a couple minutes left and and so I want to get to maybe the toughest three lessons that you've had to learn about it creative person going into business for yourself.

This really doesn't have anything to do with it. But we're doing the book of joy that was written by a written about an interview between the Dalai Lama and Bishop Desmond Tutu About about joy which. I think that'll probably end up being a podcast down the road. But okay in the discussion we we just take a section of the book and we discuss and we started talking about reframing and looking at things differently and I started thinking about that back when I was in high school as many many years ago I ended up.

"As hate crimes are up hate crimes are on but why don't they tell us what kind of hate crimes are on why don't they tell us what kind of hate crimes wrapped her hate crimes up because of hate crimes against Muslims now against African Americans know against Hispanics no fifty percent of the hate crimes so defined by the F. B. I. R. against Jews who make up a small percentage of the population of this country someone they report this at CNN and MSNBC and when these democratic candidates mention this why don't they mention who most of the hate crimes are aimed and so when you hear the Democrats anti semite carcass Omar anti leave an A. O. C. just for starters and defended in the media they're celebrated in the media their creations of the media who is it that spreading hate exactly where the anti Semites in the Republic among the Republicans in the house there aren't any among the Republicans in the Senate there aren't any they're not and how come they don't debate this in the democratic debates if they want to talk about isms why don't they do that what I'm gonna do that there's a great piece in the lead a great piece in the lead that is the lead blog dot com if trump's rhetoric caused el Paso shooting Obama's rhetoric because synagogue shootings Saturday was a horrible day for America thanks Jeff tonight's to man shootings thirty one people were killed more than fifty injured liberals in the mainstream media were quick to place blame for the mass shootings on president trump's rhetoric and his followers you and perhaps the most hypocritical example was former vice president Joe Biden speech that directly link the anti trump interpretation of president trump's rhetoric to his past this past weekend's shootings Biden really believes what he says he should be slamming the anti Jewish hatred spewed by Barack Obama the president from whom he work by you should be asked if trump's words incited this week shooting should you be blaming Obama's anti semitic words and actions for the recent synagogue shootings in Pittsburgh and Palais the answer is yes for example Obama July thirty one twenty fifteen phone call organized by the anti Israel group J. street and other so called progressive Jewish groups should be summed up in one sentence please help because those rich people are helping those warmongering Jews to fight this incredible ran deal because they don't like me and they want to start a war just like they did in Iraq now the twenty minute phone call Obama said over and over those opponents of the Iran deal come from the same quote array of forces that got us into the Iraq war on quote any identified those forces as quote a bunch of billionaires who happily finance super pacs on quote and are putting the squeeze on members of Congress the message was clear to the Jewish participants William Darab senior VP for public policy and director of the Washington office of the Jewish federations of North America tweeted during the meeting Jude called Jews are leading effort to kill a rand DO sane people opposing the deal let us into the Iraq war on quote followed with Jews got us into the Iraq war and in a meeting with a hand picked list of Jewish leaders Lee Rosenberg eight pack question Obama statement campaign people who object to the Iran deal with those who supported the invasion of Iraq because many anti Semites claim the Jews pushed bush into invading Iraq no bomb explain that Netanyahu supported the Iraq invasion true what the former president left out was that the prime minister at the time was Ariel Sharon and Sharon strongly urge bush not to invade Iraq hi mom also forgot to mention that is vice president Joe Biden both of the secretaries of state carrying Clinton and his biggest ally in the Senate minority leader Harry Reid all supported voted for the invasion of Iraq in Congress and now support his flawed Iran deal but Obama even double down accusing the Jewish state of being a bunch of war mongers during an August twenty fifteen speech at American University Obama again try to scapegoat the Jews saying quote so this deal is not just the best choice among alternatives this is the strongest nonproliferation agreement ever negotiated because this is such a strong deal every nation in the world that is commented publicly with the exception of the Israeli government has expressed support yes Israel oppose the deal but so did Saudi Arabia Pakistan UAE Bangladesh most of the other Sunni Muslim states vehemently opposed to DO because of their feels that the Shia Iran would use nukes to attack them but Obama wanted to skate scapegoat the juice and the media were quiet beginning with his first campaign for president Obama surrounded himself with anti Semites like general Merkel make peak Merrill McPeak pick pick was the two thousand eight Obama for president co chair who had an impressive resume of blaming our farm policy on quote the Jewish lobby on quote perhaps the best example of make takes anti semitism was when he was asked during an interview why there isn't peace in the Middle East as answer New York City Miami we have a large vote vote here in favor of Israel and no politician wants to run against in other words those pesky Jews who control America's policy on the Middle East one of his first presidential point was was the anti semitic Chas Freeman who claimed his resignation on the evil Israel lobby nicer way to say the Jewish lobby actually Chas it was a lot less than an evil Israel lobby much of it was the work of a few Jewish blockers one of them was named let let who pointed out that you believe things like China was two gentlemen putting down the Tiananmen Square protests and the Muslims discovered America and worse in twenty fifteen speaker bane are invited to world leaders to speak to a joint session of Congress both times the speaker's invitation was made on his own without first checking with the White House the invitation to the Jewish leader Benjamin Netanyahu was criticized by a bomb in fact he carriages fellow Democrats to boycott the speech this speech by the second world leader pope Francis was celebrated despite the White House not being informed of the invite before it was made Obama did not Jewish ties to the land of Israel which according to the state department definition is anti semitic it is two thousand nine Cairo speech Obama said Israel was only created because people felt guilty about the Holocaust should America strong bonds with Israel are well known this bond is unbreakable spaced about cultural and historical ties the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied round the world the Jewish people were persecuted for centuries and anti semitism in Europe culminated in an unprecedented Holocaust tomorrow I will visit broken wall which was part of a network of camps where Jews were enslaved tortured shot and gassed to death by the third Reich six million Jews were killed more than the entire Jewish population of Israel today Obama show the world that he honored anti semitism his first presidential medal of freedom honorees was bishop Desmond Tutu and Mary Robinson the friendliest thing bishop Desmond Tutu ever said about Jews was quote people are scared in this country the US to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful now he also said that the Jews thought they had a monopoly on god two two skull honoree Mary Robinson presided over the World Conference against racism racial discrimination xenophobia and related intolerance that turned into a nonstop hate fest against Jews in Israel the conference was so anti semitic that Colin Powell the secretary of state at the time walked out during his presidency Obama has allied himself with al Sharpton who was a leader of the anti semitic pogrom in crown heights and it cited the anti semitic fire bombing of Freddie's fashion Mart in Harlem he sent his closest adviser Valerie Jarrett to keynoted anti semitic hi as in a conference whose discussions included how key Obama aides are Israeli proving Jews have control of the world and how the Holocaust is the punishment of Jews for being serially disobedient Allah in twenty ten Obama's national security adviser general Jim Jones gave the keynote speech at the Washington institute for Near East policy and started out with an anti

S. preppers Presbyterian church there were no complaints when the Presbyterian church owned it but team Obama wasn't objecting to the fact that the houses were being built on that land back then the homes were intended for Christian or Muslim families they would have said nothing as it was with so many other cases during the Obama administration the objection was based on the Jews were going to live in those buildings there's no other faith in the world that the Obama administration objected legally purchasing land buildings then moving into the property they legally purchased Obama signed a bipartisan trade facilitation and trade enforcement act of twenty fifteen which contain provisions fighting the anti semitic BDS movement but upon signing the bill and now said he would not enforce its anti BDS provisions against Israel and one of the last acts of Obama's president was up staining on a U.

"They I mean, this cartoon and the New York Times international addition uses every single cliches thorough typical age old caricature, descriptions, anybody that wants that was anti semitic. That's what they did here. Just I mean, it was so obvious. And so there was no ambiguity about. What this is. None whatsoever. So it shows up in the time report on Thursday, these anti semitic tropes, prime minister as a guide dog star of David collar leading the president. You know, it's obviously. I I read it to trying to diminish the true nature of yarmulkes and it's holy significance. And the Jewish faith initial Editor's Note. Finally on Saturday, say something they say, well, the image was offensive and error of judgement to publish it. It was provided by to the New York Times service and syndicate well, but they deleted it. This today. Tapping on Thursday. And saying it's an error of judgement that they didn't apologize for this. They didn't acknowledge what this was. You know, we just heard this horrible synagogue shooting. And what did we hear the same idiots who've been lying for two two and a half years the same idiots that were out there? Bludgeoning a sixteen year old kid for wearing a maga- hat. The same idiots that word vanishing every bizarre conspiracy. Under the the face of the sun. I mean, we have a buzz feed reporter where they initially printed the dossier finally saying that the dossier is an eft up document. Well, took awhile. Anyway. So they I retract it on Saturday. This went out on Thursday. With the, but they they never had an apology involved in any way, shape or form. Which clearly means they didn't get it. They didn't fully understand it. And what's so offensive about that part of it is all you have to do is look at it. It should be a no brainer. As they say. And. It's hard to imagine. What took them so long to even finally go further, but then by Sunday. They lay all day Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They decided to give it another shot and they finally apologized for their actions announced an internal review and significant changes to its editorial process in the in the future. We're deeply sorry for the publication of anti semitic political cartoon last Thursday in the print addition of the New York Times that circulates outside the US, and we are committed to making sure nothing like this happens again. And it says such imagery is always dangerous and at a time when antisemitism is on the rise worldwide. Yeah. That's that's a big problem. Huge problem. We have investigated how this happened and learn that because it's unacceptable, and because of the faulty process of single editor. Oh, we're gonna blame it that. We're going to bring it down to one single editor. No one else saw this in the New York Times. I don't believe that for five seconds. Really just dumping it on one person that thing. Well, we'll just fight blame one person. Anyway, goes on to say without adequate oversight downloaded the syndicate syndicated cartoon made the decision to include it in the opinion page. The matter remains under review, we are valuating on internal processes processes and training cetera et cetera. We anticipate significant changes times is still not identified the single editor. It's just unbelievable. And we have this horrible shooting took place. Alan Dershowitz, he made these comments. Said one of the weapons of hate against Jews deployed by Nazi Germany were cartoons and caricatures that depicted Jews as sub human animals often as dogs and spiders. Remember I used to quote Muhammad Morsi back by the Obama administration the guy the Muslim Brotherhood former head at once referred to Jews as descendants of apes and pigs. Okay. What I keep saying. This is stereotypical. This is classic. This is it is the age old caricature descriptions in bulk aces, and then Obama ended up giving the guy that referred to Jews as descendants of apes and pig nobody paid attention, but me seemingly in the media. And what did he get billions of dollars from Obama and military support it cetera? Anyway, so he goes on to say about how one of the weapons deployed the hate against Jews in Nazi Germany cartoons and caricatures depicting Jews of human 'em animals often as dogs are spiders. So when the New York Times international dishes published a cartoon over the weekend, portraying the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has a dog wearing a star of David. It's editor should have should not have been surprised that the outrage reaction the controversy in Europe, and in Berkeley, increasing anti semitism is deemed acceptable by many on the left as long as it's the rected at the nation state of the Jewish people in its leaders and defenders Israel today as increasingly become the object of historic anti Jewish. Stereotyping is right. And I'm gonna tell you it's it's rise is chilling those an article couple of weeks ago. Now because of antisemitism. Many. Jewish people are leaving Europe and moving to Israel, by the way that is there in central homeland. By the way, the and all these people the media blaming Trump. There's never been a president that has had a better relationship and done more to stand up for the state of Israel. Then President Donald Trump. All these presidents that promised a move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. They made the promise a campaign. Never did it person to do. It is the person that keeps his word Donald Trump. And then recognizing the Golan Heights has Israeli territory, which it is. And I think that certainly shows the the nature and the the love and commitment to our closest ally in the region. Dershowitz, right? European Burke Burkitt's, it's it's look at congresswoman, Omar. He says the distance between the offices of the New York Times that our national edition in the synagogue and San Diego which gunman attacked on Saturdays growing smaller as the reach of the internet is growing larger both the extreme right and extreme left to humanize Jews. And it's far easier to kill a dehumanize stereotype than real person. He's talking about these these Nazis bay. Hey, chris. They hate Catholics hate everybody. So I guess except themselves. Ignorant. They are you got Omar. He said consider these anti semitic remarks of congresswoman, Omar, Minnesota or nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan. Then he goes on to say South African Bishop Bishop Desmond Tutu, we mentioned British Labor Party leader. Jeremy Corbyn, many liberals have defended them Bernie Sanders of Vermont was among the worst offenders actually went to London show support for his fellow socialist Corbin despite the history of antisemitism has is tolerance for anti semitism. From the left is the most pronounce that universities where our future leaders studying for that reason hard left tolerance of semitism disguised as anti Zionism is our future unless we can stop it. He's not wrong. Sadly, not wrong. And the people that rush the judgment to try to blame Trump for this horrifying shooting took place. I mean, it's like they have no shame at all. Considering the history of Trump. And the relate, and I've known how many we've no we knew been really good friends with prime minister Netanyahu for over twenty some odd years of my life. I mean, really close fronts. Somebody. I think stood on the the world stage is the only voice of moral clarity until Trump got elected here. Remember how you guys met? No. Prime minister actually told the story when we went to Israel of how he met you. And it's it's actually pretty incredible. What was he heard you on the radio? He heard you on the radio. He heard you talking about Israel, or you heard you talking about, you know, all of all of the things that were so misunderstood by so many in America and didn't truly understand what was happening on the West Bank Gaza strip, you know, between the Palestinians, and and those Jewish people who choose to live in the couplets right there on the Bank, but we were in the Bush the member of the night before it got hit with a rocket. It's on the border with Gaza. I won't say it, right? You will slow settled that haute starry, and we saw they they put in glass BB's metal to to maximize human damage the sadder part about that particular incident that you're talking about in that bombing is that those though. Those particular puts our for teaching children, and that's where they were having a summer camp. Well, remember, they can't have it's so close to the Gaza border. They can't pa- playgrounds outside. They have underground played playgrounds that are basically bunkers, and if it wasn't for the iron dome. I you know, Israel would be would be hit left. And right every hour of every day it never stopped. And that's how the prime minister met you. Which is very funny heard you on the radio, and then he called him usual friend of Arizona. You gotta find this guy's guys an Irish guy about Israel, and how much he loves Israel. And I thought it was just funny. Israel is the only democracy in the region. And we will how deep was that tunnel. We win how to be out fifty one hundred feet below ground. And remember I went back to help that reporter print reporter who she couldn't get back up. And he was a big liberal goes. I don't even like you all didn't like you into low. Pretty funny. What happens tunnel? It was so steep the climb back up and by the way, the tunnels that they would build for us. They're using his Rayleigh cement and is rarely electricity. -unding that was supposed to be exactly water. They use it to build these elaborate tunnels that was when we lived in the last four then I did I went back another time. There's rely from Tel Aviv up the coast to show how small country as a helicopter. Nobody understands the security risks that they have. But I mean, it's all of this, and even in the US congress now, they can't condemn, you know, very Lynn, anti semitism and all these people in the media all weekend long, blaming Trump. I couldn't believe when you guys play this montage. I've tried to shut down on a here it this weekend. And I was obviously I saw some of the coverage, but not I don't watch fake news that much and then when I heard it, I couldn't believe it. Now, the BuzzFeed reporter is saying is name is Anthony Cormie area. I guess he's part of this investigative team that they have over BuzzFeed. And he says that, but he wasn't part of the story about the dossier and BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith made the decision post the thirty five page unverified dossier during Trump's transition which the dossier compiled now, the New York Times telling us it was rushing disc. Information. Magin that took all this time to figure that out. And the media goes that deep into conspiracy theories, and they won't let it go. They're not saying that they were wrong. No, just now they've moved their hope I from the FBI, and we had a house Intel investigation, then we had a bipartisan Senate investigation, and you can't get any more clear with what Robert Muller says. Now, they're putting their faith and hope on congress to do it just they're never gonna stop. And you know, by the way, there was a story on gateway pundit today about how Joe Biden my disgust Steele dossier, a secret Oval Office meeting with the coup plotters before the Trump all this is headed right into the Oval Office. I think of the Obama administration.

"Justin Kauffman Alex cutlets. The author of an American summer love and death in Chicago is with me. We're having conversation about this book, which is just I just it's a really great read in and congratulations on the success. I know it's getting great reviews. This project is one that is close to your heart. Because it almost is a follow up to some of the other projects that you've done the interrupters was a tremendous documentary. But also there are no children here, which that is required. Reading for anyone who is interested in violence, and it takes place in a different time. But a lot of the stuff is the same so sober in. Isn't it is that you read their children here for this? Public housing has been torn down. You just realize man, we're still grappling with all these issues all people are still dealing with all these burdens bearing down on that. And it's amazing to think about some of the characters that are in. There are no children here. They're adults. They're they've moved on the, but this book and the book that's talk about talks about the the fact that there's this complex lost this PTSD, if you will for so many kids that are that are making that transition into high school right now making that transition. Right. I mean, the adults as well. Let's talk about Lisa Lisa's mother. And this is a this is such an interesting story because it has to do with the grieving process and the people that are left behind. Lisa Daniels, absolutely remarkable woman, and there are two dimensions to her story. So lease a lives on the south side of Chicago lived on Chicago and just increased she was raising two boys. The older one is went off to study engineering your by and the younger one Darren begins to stray and everything she can't hold him close. And and one day Darren goes to purchase some small amount of marijuana seemed maybe with intention of robbing the drug dealer, and it appears maybe the drug dealer had intention of Robin ham, and the when they meet the gunfight into and the drug dealer ended up killing Darren. So the first thing that happens is this happens in park forest and the local newspaper there runs a story. That's all about DARREN'S criminal record. He had served some time in prison and not in denial. She knows all that. But she's really angry that this is sort of how her son is remembered that he's. She wants people to know he was a much richer, fuller complicated human being just this into. She makes every effort to your she post on Facebook. She writes a letter to the newspaper, and she actually gets. Frame for her license plates reads. He was my son. His name was Darren. And what's nuanced about? It is as you said Lisa is not a head in the sand. My my baby boy was was the best and she understands with life. He chose. But there is this stereotype that happens in newspapers in common sections, the thug kind of talent that that seems pervasive in this case, right? We're just so quick to pigeonhole people. I think of the chimney Monday DJ, the novelist talks about the danger of the single narrative. And that's precisely what this is is trying to avoid is this danger that that we think we know the shape of her son's story. So there's that. And then the other part of it is is it. She assumes that the shooter is going to, you know, it seems like a pretty simple case that you know, that he's going to get convicted himself a lot of time in prison. And then it turns out that the key witness has a criminal record. And so the state's attorney is concerned about the case and comes to lease and said, you know, we'd like to offer. A plea deal. But we'll do it only a few agree to it. And Lisa agrees to it. But says I'll do it under one condition that is that I get to read a victim impact statement. And most people when they give a victim impact statement in court. It's all about sort of the the burden the grief that they've experienced in their loved ones experienced, and she actually does that does something very different. And I'd love to read. I it's such an amazing passage of what she says. Yes, if you can read that before I read this the amazing thing about what I'm about to read is that she when she goes into into the courtroom, the she she didn't come with anything. And so the state's attorney tells locks up in a room and said you've got to get this right away. Here's Alex Kotla reading from his book in American summer. Lisa Daniels in front of the judge. My son wasn't perfect. He made bad decisions and lifestyle choices that cost him his life. But at the end of the day, none of his choices mattered because he was my son and I loved him and miss him terribly. The morning after he was killed the south town newspaper headline read man shot to death in park forest had drug and weapon felony convictions. And from that day to this. I awake every day with a mission and purpose that his legacy will not be defined by his worst mistake. No, one should not even the defendant. Bishop Desmond Tutu is quoted as saying humanity is bound up in yours foods can only be Uman together. I believe that statement. It'd be true. I believe that. We were all connected by our humanity. And I cannot speak for my son's humanity. Without speaking for the same unanimity of the man who by one really bad decision took his life. And then she goes on and ask the judge for leniency and amazing having a correspondence with my does. She goes back and forth with the shoe. The man who killed her son who reaches out to say, you didn't have to say those things about me, and what's amazing about this. And what makes it so emotional is that you just assume basic human emotion is going to push you into vengeance is going to push you into I need to avenge. My son's dining to make sure that this person is punished and far too often that seems to be the circle that happens on the streets of Chicago that that emotion is prevailing and to hear her be able to do that in front of the court in front of the person who shot her and killed her son. It's it's remarkable. But to be fair and Lisa recognizes. This is not every case lends itself to forgiveness, and I've said in on a couple of murders where there was absolutely no remorse, and it was I just felt impossible to give that kind of forgiveness. But this notion of forgiveness kind of I mean, this wasn't intentional. But kind of finds its way in a number of the stories. I mean also stories about people trying to forgive themselves for what they did. Are you talking obviously Eddie Eddie bocanegra who was convicted and was in prison for for for murder for shooting. Someone a gang against you. And how he has to deal with as out now, and he's working as a social worker, but he's the deal with that over and over and over and Eddie, you know, every he's doing this extraordinary work, you know, working now to kind of undo some of the damage that he was a part of you know, he runs this program. I mean, what's so extraordinary bet Eddie he runs this program. Now where Chicago ready where they're not only providing jobs to young people. But also in insisting that they undergo cognitive behavioral therapy where they can sort of begin to think about the trauma that they've experienced Eddie gets it better than anybody else. And again, a nuance story for people who are listening to say people make their choices they make they make this decision. They have to live with it. It's not on us. It's on them. And and all of that is there, and what's great about the chapter on Eddie is that he recognizes that that he has trouble in his. Life moving on from a decision. He made and it follows him, and he has to deal with the trauma of that for the rest of his life. Right, right. It's pretty amazing. The whole book in American summer love and death in Chicago. Alex Kotla wits is here. He's my guest tonight an extension seven twenty let's do this. Let's take a break. We'll get some headlines from Andrea darlas and will return and continue the conversation with Alex kava would stay with us. Six.
