Our New Post-racial Myth
"So it's all laid out in this piece in the atlantic which constantly publishes left-wing pieces that have a veneer of intellectuality that that is the way i would define the atlantic the new york times Opinion writers are are more street fighters. The atlantic has this patina of intellectuality. So the abram x. can be pieces worth analyzing. He is their foremost spokesman for america being a racist society so this article just published is their way of explaining it and it sounds very effective to his students. I am sure at boston university and tool your kids who go. Oh my god black baby style twice the rate of white babies that proves that there's racism in america. We don't care about black babies dying. No evidence ncis is given for how exactly. Racism produces this a fifth of native americans. And latino americans are medically uninsured. Does he include illegal. Immigrants in the latino americans. What if he does. Do you think it's an honest. Condemnation of the united states almost triple the rate of white americans in asian-americans native people see he switches when he can't find the data for blacks so he goes to native americans

"Was thinking about going up for tenure in a in a senior white. Our colleague of mine wanted to sit me down and basically was was against me going up for tenure but then stated well you would probably get tenure because you're a minority and i had already published more than that faculty member had when they went up for tenure and so it just. It was striking to me that she would say that. Over the last year you have spoken a lot of truth to power when we use that phrase. The prophetic voice seems to me. You've set out to be prophetic voice. And as you mentioned at the beginning of our conversation that is not without taking a lot of criticism and often from people who haven't delved deeply with you into the subject matter that you're talking about a year later how has that been for you are you are you. Are you warn. Are you energized. Are you ready for the next year. Do you need a break. How are you after. A year of this was certainly has been a year and i think that i've tried to reassert. Reassert my faith in readers. And what i mean by that. Is you know if a critic who hasn't read my work or who just blatantly distorts my work in order to to argue against me or to frame in some way does that. I have to trust readers that the readers who read my work and read it closely will know that. That's actually not what i'm saying or doing and that that will actually discredit the critic. Rather than me. i've just tried to lean on readers. Entrust readers in all we can do is right An entrust readers to to read an an an and really grasp. What we're trying to say. Is there a fair piece of criticism you've received over the last year. That's that's developed you further. I think as i could write stamford the beginning or even have been anti-racist.

I guess exactly though and and welcomed the boston It they'd be thinking about when i was eight newspaper reporter. I applied for job at the globe. And i've been a reporter And i was nearing the end of the process and thought it would be hired was sold there. At that time i was. I was the wrong race. Which white and the wrong ethnicity. Which is irish and the globe had had a very long run of that. And you know my. My interpretation of that was honestly. I was grateful. Because i felt like we've had a long run. It's time for all of us to kind of step aside and and and kind of applaud the promotion of people of color also qualified to do this job. And i've never felt differently and i've i've told this story to many people over the years they said well. You must've been like angry. I i was not angry. I felt like it's time and this is over thirty years ago. There was still struggling with this and that to me is disappointing. Thanks for the call. Ernie professor candy. Well i mean obviously. I can't sort of comment specifically on. What would happen that story. But but but i do know that when an organization decides to hire a candidate of color over qualified over a white candidate that's qualified that typically white candidates don't have the same reaction that that ernie did and assume that that candidate of color is not qualified which then presupposes that people of color and are qualified Which presupposes that people of color only get positions because of their skin color And and that then only creates more division. It makes me think of the story. That's unfolding right now regarding espn. Rachel nichols a white woman. Longtime reporter anchor for the network was caught on tape making some disparaging remarks about maria taylor..

"This idea of solidarity which came up and we'll talk about some other podcast episodes as well but there was so much in this idea of zero sum that seemed to get at the heart of anti-racist work you talk about solidarity It really resonated with me and doing anti-poverty poverty work people often argue that we deprive ourselves when we hold others back from being their full selves. I think of mona lisa smith and mothers for justice inequality in boston talking about you know. Every child is our child A year ago. When you and i talked i i asked you about policies that may be needed to be in place in boston. And you rightly said. At the time i just got here. Gimme a second. But it's it's been a year now. Are there policies especially policies towards poverty or children in boston that you think we need to see or reverse in order to become a more anti-racists city so few years ago a young one of the youngest mayors in the country but enabled michael tops Was mayor of stockton california and he decided to to to inaugurate a basic income program which he would provide a basic basically checks to to local people to particularly impoverished people and then study what type of effect it has on their lives study even what type of effect how they used the my and in that program that he started in stockton his spread around to other cities. And why can't we have a pilot basic income program in boston. The original study found that people do what other people would do it when they get extra money. They pay bills. They go back to school. They do things that that allow them to become more more productive. This thought that low income people are going to quote by sneakers a waste away. Money has never really been proven by science and by providing funds for people it lifts them out of poverty and so so you know poverty and in the city is disproportionately my understanding black and brown until it could. It's something that could lift sort of people out of poverty. We did have The town administrator in in chelsea after they did a pilot of guaranteed basic income program and the evaluation of it found that it was targeted towards hunger. In that people spent the majority of people spent the money for some foremost on food to underscore what you're saying. Are you ready to go to the phones. Are you ready to take a call..

"You can't say something bad or good about a text that you haven't read but but obviously that's that's something that that that's done and So i've tried to figure out to learn how to respond to that. And i've learned to just not respond at all. I wanna think about this idea of the long step in there. Such a visual in that. And i'm also thinking about the conversation that you had with heather mcghee on your podcast where you talked about this zero sum framing and i wonder is there something that one has to be willing to lose or to give up in order to take that long step from learning to action. Well i i think at a personal level if it is it is. It is difficult for some people to admit that even though that the nation is is not a meritocracy and the reason why it's difficult for some of us to admit that because then that means that we are not in our position purely off of merit and and and and and it's hard for people to to to know into this admit that and And that indeed as me as a man that that. I've had an certainly benefited from from male privilege or even sister underprivileged or or. You know the fact that. I'm heterosexual a heads forms of privilege. That certainly have benefited me along the way and i know it's hard for people to to admit that because then they have to give up is idea that they are self made and everything that they've accomplished has been because they're so great and because they're so work. I i want to stay with that for a minute. And with this conversation that you had with author and activist other mcgee. She wrote the so the about the so-called zero-sum game your conversation made me think about a chapter in the book the warmth of other suns by isabel wilkerson. It also made me think of richard reeves's work on dream hoarding. It's this idea that we buy into that allowing someone else to rise means losing our own relative position. I i wanna play a little bit of the sound of you and mcgee talking about it using a really accessible metaphor which is flying here. it is in a way. Their child's school is almost like a first class school. They're like whoa. If we create equity than i'm going to be back and coach. Yeah i don't want that. I'm gonna lose my kid's gonna lose but it seems to me that white americans should be assessing themselves from other white people in the west. Yeah and when they make that comparison that's when they can see actually what they don't have how they're in coach right and in fact maybe and other societies in the western world. Everybody's just in last. There's no little that the flight attendant moves over right. Everyone gets food right. Everyone has a leg room. You know everybody gets to bring a bag. I wanted to ask after i heard that. Do you think there are places where everyone is in first class. Have we been able to overcome that kind of if i get mine. You can't have yours. And if you get yours than i can't have mine any more dynamic anywhere in the united states and and i think that i think that's what's sad In in the sense that.

But but we haven't had the ability to to really take those major steps towards towards action toward ridding this nation of this proper. You only pause because you said.

Personalized brain stimulation alleviates severe depression symptoms
"Two studies out today suggest ways to improve treatments for depression and obsessive compulsive behavior. Using brain stimulation. Thea Pro just delivers pulses of electric or magnetic energy to certain areas in the brain. Scientists report that stimulation is more effective when it is customized for each patient. MPR's Jon Hamilton has more Brain stimulation is usually reserved for people who haven't been helped by drugs or other treatments. People like this woman in her thirties who had severe unrelenting depression, the world was slow. And gray and flat. Everything kind of tasted the same. No actual sense of enjoyment or No ability to imagine NPR agreed not to use the woman's name to protect her medical privacy. After five years of searching for help, she got into a study run by Dr Katherine Scan. Gus of the University of California San Francisco. Scandals is part of a team trying to improve deep brain stimulation, which implants wires in the brain to deliver tiny pulses of electricity. Traditional deep brain stimulation has typically stimulated in one location. In every patient without really an understanding of how that effects each individual's depression symptoms. Scandals thought she might be able to relieve the woman's depression using a different approach. So she created a map of her patient's brain that showed which area was associated with each symptom. She had an iPad and she marked off her level of depression and anxiety. An energy level in response to each pulse of neuromodulation. Then scandals used that information to design a deep brain stimulation system that monitored these areas and delivered pulses on Lee when there were signs of trouble. Our goal is to develop a brain pacemaker. That can nudge these depressions circuits back into their healthy state and keep them there. And for this patient, it worked, she recalls. The first time doctors stimulated one particular area of her brain.

TSA sees highest number of airport passengers screened since pandemic started

Three million passengers were screened yesterday. And that has dr found she again warning of a surge on top of a surge back with us tonight dr. He'd be delia an infectious disease physician and the medical director of special pathogens unit. At boston university school of medicine she worked with the world health organization back when we were a member nation during the o. Bola outbreak and is among one of our medical. Contributors dr julia. It's good to see you so the travel over the weekend was exceptional. All things considered a lot of americans deciding that they wanted to get away. I wanted to see family. What do you make of what that is going to mean for the spread across the country. And when will we start seeing that spike. Katya look back one month right. Look at california as an example. California is one of the epicenters right now in our country of this pandemic and the state lockdown order. But when you look at the cell phone mobility data people didn't stop moving as much as they did after the first lock down and you only have to look at the tsa data for lax the biggest day of travel during pandemic on november twentieth. The top forty four thousand people the second largest summer twenty third and so if what played out with the increased number of cases leading to the hospitalizations that you're seeing in december now because of the holiday travel in november. Were up on a hill. A really really rough hill for the next month as we see what's already happening in hospitals get doubled from the cases and hospitalizations that result from the december new year's travel. Let me redo this from the washington post. It's impossible to say. How many infections people have taken flights in part because those travelers may not have known they were sick. The cdc said in september that it had investigated sixteen hundred cases of people who flew while they were at risk of spreading the virus and identified. Almost eleven thousand people who could have been exposed on those flights. Now the airlines taking great pains to say that they have state of the art air filtration systems and the air within those plans are getting getting circulated so quickly that the spread of infection when you are flying is relatively low. They're also a lot of airlines. That are saying they're trying to spread people out but with that. Many people traveling on limited schedules. The planes are getting tighter. My question to you is. Where is the risk worse. Worst is on the planes or is it at these gatherings that folks are coming from. Yeah i think it depends on the plane or the gathering. I mean on the plane. The toughest part is when you're actually at the gate when all those hippo filters and not circulation is actually off. And you don't know the person in front of your or next us put their mascot right. this has been. There's been an ongoing discussion about getting travelers to wear masks. And so it is. It is during the plane ride. It is those periods of time. There is no circulation but that person as you said asymmetric what we know that asymptomatic carriers people who are infected could make up up to forty percent of the new cases the spread of new cases and so they may take whatever transmission they got on that plane to their gatherings and again indoors larger groups all of those elements as we've been talking about over the course of this pandemic are going to hurt one. One thing that i heard today that really struck me. Is that people who got infected at their christmas gathering that they now go to the new year parties they're actually going to be infectious and be able to transmit that.

They're really accurate when you're actually very inefficient, infectious.

Although it's another tool in our toolbox moderna vaccine the advantages of it are actually store that much much higher temperatures making distorted most of the freezers bridges that hospitals and clinics usually absent additionally gonna be helpful in areas that made me maybe do not have that infrastructure to be able to store the visor vaccine. So that's one thing that the reason maderna's saw a twenty two zero compared to pfizer that some people turn down the vote was actually. The madeira vaccine is looking for Emergency authorization for those over eighteen years of age whereas the pfizer had the sixteen and seventeen year olds as part of their horton. Some of the members of the committee. The fbi independent committee had an issue with so few number of people in that age for pfizer. It's good news. The one thing that will point out that together with either madonna. Us little if everything goes plan that secured about hundred and fifty million a vaccination spur one hundred fifty million people.

Loneliness and Litigation: A Lawyer's Case Study
"Doctor. Freiberg welcome to the show. Thank you so very much dr freiberg. We are here to discuss loneliness. And i promise. We're going to get to that. But i'd be remiss if i didn't ask your thoughts on the differences between being a social psychologist and a lawyer. What's that like well. It proved interesting for me. I became a social psychologist. I and i was professor for a decade at boston university. And then i had a chance to go across the river and go to harvard law school so i wasn't gonna turn that down. I became a lawyer and then it pretty quickly became clear that criss crossing the to expertise gave me of field of work. It was unlike anybody else. No one else in in boston. Had both degrees and they're pretty quickly became what was sort of called around towns. The site lawyer. Boston's psych lawyer so institutions and agencies anything to do with psychiatry or psychology or clinical. Social work asked me to be their general counsel and it was in the context of being general counsel that i heard about so many clinical cases and that became the material for my research. You define loneliness differently from others. Can you tell us about that. Indeed what i thought. I discovered over thirty five years of being council to a great percentage of boston. Psychiatrists psychologists and clinical social workers was that they kept reporting more and more loneliness sure. Their clients had other issues as well but the clients kept talking about being enormously disconnected from others not having anybody to live with anybody in their life nobody to call more and more as the years went by loneliness became ever more present. I started just think about this topic and the more i researched it. It struck me that loneliness is not an emotion like anger or happiness. It's a sensation like hunger or thirst so just since our body tells us up were hungry thirsty it also says. I feel really lonely and disconnected. After hearing that definition it makes a little more sense this next statement because you consider chronic loneliness a public health crisis of the first order. They surgeon general of the united states. Vivek murthy the nineteenth surgeon general about a decade ago said we are actually experienced an epidemic of loneliness about thirty five percent of the american population in two thousand ten reported feeling chronically lonely and what i mean by that we all feel lonely from time to time. How could we not. But that's not like being chronically. Lonely just like being sad it's not like being clinically depressed. As a huge difference. Chronic loneliness is in the land in the last fifty years evermore so and it correlates with much worse health in much shorter life span. So it's serious. It sounds very serious but one of the things that i keep thinking about is people are enmeshed around other people may have social media so even when you're at home you're around other people. We work in offices. Now i know cove it has changed that a little bit but i just. I'm trying to think of the last time that i was truly alone. And i can't come up with it even as i sit here interviewing you. My phone will ding. I'm never not surrounded by people. I guess my question is how can people still feel so lonely. Given how connected our world is. But that's the key question because there are two pathways to loan one. Pathway is being alone being isolated being disconnected but a different pathway is being surrounded by people as you described but not benefiting from those relationships not feeling nourished not feeling nurtured not feeling sues. People are objectively lonely. 'cause they're all divorced off from anybody they don't have anybody in their lives but just as many people become chronically lonely surrounded by others

So I think I'll probably get involved with that and you guys in the loop if there is anything that I am passionate about that I definitely want to get involved in maybe coaching. I've been approached by a few people to start a camp. So that's been on my mind maybe later in the summer but the rinks are currently closed right now so long and we I don't really know about ice time.

Did you look up to I know you're a little bit on the younger side, but I don't know if you fall in like Bobby or or or a boar or any of the current players like Patrice Bergeron. Do you have any female athletes that you looked up to who were some of your athletes ours that got you so close on Sports at such a young age. Yeah, I think we always talk about like if you can see it you can be it and like growing up. I was like I want to play in NHL. That's all we really kind of like had and I grew up like watching the Bruins. So like I grew up watching Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic in Chara and off like Tim Thomas and like all of those like Bruins players and I think that I like love the Bruins growing up and those were my like those were my role models but then wage as I got older and older and and like in middle school and end of elementary school and high school. I was like, I started seeing females in and seeing them play and I was like, oh I want to go to prep school. I want to go play college hockey and that's when I think some college hockey players like marie-philip Poulin like she played a few and she's on Team Canada and she was like abused are and just juice. Such a great leader and then I think but from the USA side like Contra Granado and like Meghan Duggan and all like a j like those those women were really big role models to for me and followed hockey and played Sports and my parents started the high school team in our town. And so I think like my family was such a great motivation for me in a model. So I was so lucky to be put into such a healthy environment with my family. So I have to give them a lot of credit to love that. You had a lot of female influence around you before you get into her Sports. I think that is super cool because usually you hear people say, oh I love watching Bob you are I love watching Patrice Bergeron, which of course we all love me laughing says well, but I love you had such a strong female influence, Indiana. I kind of wanted her to ask this quick question. You you had a what is your question? I love again having fun with our special guest bath. So what I want to know little off topic, but also going to be hilarious. What is your what was your childhood Crush?

But there you're seeing this is back in twenty ten I believe, or at least it was posted by in two thousand ten right? It's they're doing the breakfast club dance and having fun and enjoying youth. How dare so they must be destroyed dare she? This was spread by a Twitter account called to give you an idea of how serious person is politically anonymous q. Lots of credibility. There got the Q. They're probably random cue doesn't have anything to do with anything saying when these spread this here is America's favorite Kami. No, it all acting like the clueless knit, which she is. The response was such that that person deleted their Twitter. And as I pointed out on the day before this morning, it takes a lot to shame. A Q believer on their beliefs enough that they flee the internet, by the way to know nothing from high school it was from college. Yeah. Boston University right there on the right? And she was the only one doing it. She didn't do it. Now, she did in college. So the accusation. And so it's not just one guy. Then of course, the right wing went all in and they're all. Oh. She's when this clearly not allowed. Okay. What does this footloose? They're like the point. He's become like the Bill. Anderson footloose do not let anyone dance by the way the other country that does not allow dancing. I believe I'm not positive is Saudi Arabia. Well, I mean, they strike me as the religious police right going around making sure that people have their beards making sure that people don't have any fun. I mean, isn't that very similar a similar take on a super innocent video of a college student dancing are we along dancing in America. Now. Land of the free guys. Look this actually fits in comedic -ly into a trend in their attempts to take down, you know, I would say whether you like their policies. They're not charismatic politician. So this is what they have on ABC with Beto they pointed out that he skateboards, and he was in a rock band and with Obama back in the day. They had that photo of him smoking. What might have been marijuana might have just been a cigarette that's cooler than a photo of ever been in my life. And they think these are how they destroyed people by making them super relatable into tractive. But really, I mean who aren't you guys? I mean, you think they she when she was in college. She should not have danced. I mean when Donald Trump got out of college. He ran out of Vietnam a fake, doctor's note and let other kids die for. That's okay. That's okay. But but did you ever dance? I mean, what kind of weirdos are they I mean, if you tried to find a way to turn off the American people more you couldn't do it. So thank you. No. But because the level beneath that is like they don't understand voters just at all. Because voters clearly don't dance. Detach them from from Alexander. Then then then you somehow, I don't know get your person back in congress. It's weird. So I just I feel like there are certain politicians who can't win regardless of how they act what they do what their past is when I say certain politicians, I mostly mean women. Okay, women if they're if they present themselves as too serious, they you know, they don't go out of their way to have fun or if they do have fun. They try try to conceal it. They're considered. Oh, she's she's too stern. She seems like a bitch. Like, you you hear that over and over again. I mean, look, Hillary Clinton was a very flawed politician. I had lots of issues with her on a policy standpoint. But a lot of the criticism that she got had to do with the fact that she seemed like she wouldn't let loose. She seemed like she was to, you know, buttoned up or whatever. Whereas with ANC she's young she made history as an.
