"Anything to help me understand this but it was just random I mean they all the time in nine Twenty Five William, Moulton Austin fell in love with one of his students woman Cook Olive Byrne who was shade. So all of burn is where things get really really interesting because up until that point in Morrison's life, he has strong ties to the suffrage movement and to the feminist movement but mall. Of Burn ties him to the Birth Control Movement, which is the most radical of those three political campaigns. All of burn is the daughter of a woman Ethel Byrne who with her sister Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the United States in nineteen sixteen in Brooklyn New York they were both nurses and they dedicated their lives to the cause of making birth control legal birth control was. Even discussing it was illegal and Ethel Byrne had abandoned her children when they were very, Very Young Olive Byrne grew up in an orphanage. She'd abandoned children gone to Greenwich, village to live with her sister and start this magazine feminist monthly called the woman rebel and opened the first birth control clinic. So all of burns mother an aunt with A. Of what becomes planned parenthood the International Federation of Birth Control, clinics and research centers so. When Marston as a professor of psychology at Tufts University, just outside Boston and Nineteen twenty five falls in love with this incredibly interesting young woman a senior at the college. He then brings her into the family. She joins the the little sort of sex cult and goes to those meetings. She's a radical thinker. She's the most radical thinker of all of them may maybe that the radical sexual practices come from her idol, I don't know. She believes in free love. She has a lot of experience and knowledge of homosexuality. I mean not necessarily personal experience but she's lives in a world where her her mother knows a lot of homosexuals and lives in Greenwich village has very broad minded ideas about sexual expression. So all that I think really changes Marston and then he and his wife Bring Olive Byrne ten years younger than both of them to live with them as a member of their family and how. About that, how side he holloway filled about coming to live this? So that's really hard to one of the things is tricky about the story as the adults in the family, the three women and Marston they don't. There's not a lot of evidence of how they felt towards one another because they don't correspond with one another they live in same house from those in their lives, and if they had letter the handwritten to one, another those letters don't survivor I haven't seen. Them, but the fact that they live together, all those years suggest I suppose that must've been I. can we we can only assume there must have been some contentment there I suppose yeah I. Think so I think absolutely it's very much a love story but in the same way you know the happiest of marriages leave no trace behind right like I don't think I've ever once written a letter to my husband and I see him every day we talk all the time.

"In Brooklyn New York what's going on down how you doing average perspective it's great to hear you back again on Saturday morning and I I appreciate I appreciate everything that you guys are doing but keep the fan news and your loyal listeners involved I really also want to thank all the first responders the bodega people of everybody who's delivering it was working and doing stuff that are keeping the rest of us say amen we we don't say it enough that the job that these women and men are doing to keep our country Roland as we're dealing with this pandemic is it's great they're true heroes I'm glad you said that we all feel that way after thank you I thank you again also thank you so I'm here not to bury Caesar on here to speak out in favor of what the eagles and what Packers did okay I look at it as a as they did something simultaneously that will change football in the two thousand twenty seasons if there is a season we have sixteen games if one of those quarterbacks at church god forbid they have a they have a young quarterback to play in the that's not there it is patient the scene down the line are seventeen and eventually eighteen gauge changes and the quarterbacks will be given up by you're saying I think that's going to be the rule that they come up with a member ID number that being mumbled around a little bit but you think that's where they're gonna go absolutely because they need to protect the quarterback do you know you need to protect they don't need to protect the the guy coming to gunner on special teams they needed to protect the quarterback more people but not a full on the way but I think that the rules that they have set up over the last decade and a half is doing just that the quarterback is protected there's a reason why Tom Brady's able to plane was forties and a lot of it is credit to him of course but a lot of it is the protections that quarterback at quarterbacks get I don't think that the eagle decision to draft Jaylen hurts or the Packer decision to draft Jordan love has to do with rule changes or resting their starting quarterback and I think both decisions are very different the Packers are looking ahead they're looking at the fact that Aaron Rodgers is thirty six thirty seven years old and they are planning ahead I wouldn't have done it but I think that's what they're thinking in the eagle case they're showing you that they they think they can use Jaylen hurts as a weapon right now even with a healthy Carson once I think that part is obvious but I think the other part they show when they use a second round pick to draft a quarterback is they are worried about him long term and what's funny about this is I agree with that part I am worried about Carson Wentz long term but right now in this moment when I would have done about that is not Dr jaman hurts in the second round what I would have done was draft mortality helping with a championship in the second round and go get myself a solid veteran backup so that if something happens to Carson Wentz again whether it's in the wild card weekend or it's week twelve whenever it is I've got a veteran backup that I feel good about it I feel great about it but I feel good about it they had that with Nick Foles they could afford after awhile we understood that they could afford it and Nick Foles won't apply you want an opportunity to play a guy like in the dorm a guy like Jameis Winston assuming they are available as backup quarterbacks to me would have been that insurance policy because of course in which is broken to the point where I got to find a long term answer I got bigger problems and I will try to find a long term answer but I'm not trying to find a long term answer in the second round of the twenty twenty draft when I'm not convinced that's an issue yet with Carson Wentz one given up on so I disagree that this is about you know kind of forward thinking.

"Based in brooklyn new york last year he and co director rob frontman completed a feature documentary called the cat rescuers tells the story of for volunteers who hit the streets of brooklyn day and night just say feline lived through ten are ended options the cat rescuers premiered in october two thousand eighteen at the hamptons international film festival one dissolved the pennzoil award for giving voice to the voiceless it's now available for community screenings around the uss through tug dot com and also directly through the filmmakers save i'd like to welcome you to the show thank you stacey it's good to be back yes so for those listeners that have just tuned into the community kept podcast recently steve was on the show maybe a couple of years ago almost a couple of year and a half ago or so folks if you're interested in finding out how the documentary got started it's beginning works feel free to go to the community cats podcast dot com and click on are search bar and you could put in cat rescuers or you put in the name steven or lawrence in his show will come right up and you can listen to that but today's show we're gonna be doing some catch up and finding out how things have been going with the film in what's new so steve let me know what's going on well beginning april first we've had screenings around the u s community screenings and as you mentioned and at the beginning of the podcast rescue groups shelters and others who care about cats can book the film one way to do it is through eight theatrical on demand service called tug t g g dot com any other way is directly through the filmmakers if you go to our website which is cat rescuers film dot com you can find out how to book a screening an are intention with the film was to make something that would help raise awareness about trap scooter return end adoptions an were were very pleased that as we've been rolling out the filter community screenings it's being embraced by lots of rescue groups all across the country so far we've had screenings in portage indiana deanna cincinnati and dayton ohio greenville south carolina san diego their upcoming screenings in grand rapids michigan fort collins colorado brooklyn new york it's all over the place phoenix minnesota a many other places so we're delighted in each of those locations a rescue group is organizing screenings and that means that they're able to use it for education about ten an orange adoptions and also for fundraising of which is critical i mean the one of the points of the film makes is that most of the work that's being done to help street cats pharaoh in the band in cats is done on a volunteer basis and and the hundreds of rescue groups around the country that are doing this work need to sustain themselves i couldn't agree with you more i mean in the brooklyn area view tend to be somewhat blessed by having access to their ass pch program but that certainly doesn't cover everything for all cats but it is a great opportunity in the new york area and there are also some organizations across the country where they have affiliations relationships with clinics that may have grant money and they can do to ten are free but they're certainly by far the mass majority individuals are paying to get the community cats spayed or neutered and that's a huge cost and a huge burden and expense and if there's anything that can be done and help raise money to be able to afford more surgeries or help at forty four more care are more food more supplies that's all the better for everyone right well we can't say the things have gotten better in brooklyn new york city overall because we still don't have any direct financial support any government support pretend are there is an issue with that because of the new york state agricultural law that's very old the nineteenth century law that prohibits it's state funding to return in injured animals to the community just strange law but it has prevented direct funding of t n r but anyway it's it's certainly different in other communities but what were finding is that the message of the film resonates even though this is a film about a big urban place brooklyn you know i just got an email this morning from a viewer in san diego saw it last site and she said so great not only forgetting the story out there but just how beautifully the film was made a great mix of humor and seriousness an education and i think that's the point about the film this is a very emotionally engaging engaging shell the rescuers are really wonderful complex admirable characters who are out there doing the kind of work that you're listeners understand very well it's really tough requires a lot of stamina and resilience lance and a good sense of humor is you're gonna keep at it so the stories of are for rescuers in brooklyn i think are similar to the stories hundreds probably thousands and thousands of stories around the country of people who were doing the same work so they see themselves in the film we hope and we hoped at the film helps raise awareness in their own communities about what it takes to do this kind of work and also why and how ten or is effective you know i know from from my own experience on the block where my wife and i lives in brooklyn that people were ignorant they just they didn't know what to do with feral cats they set up because they love animals and they wanted to make sure that they were nourished but they kept procreating and nobody knew what to do and eventually because some of us on this block learned about t n are we were able to raise awareness among our neighbors were trapped over forty cats and there hasn't been a getting which is amazing population is controlled it's healthy you know the cats other colonies and they have their feeders and that's kind of be ideal scenario but obviously it doesn't work that way everywhere and it's certainly can't work unless people know what to do they confined services whether they're volunteer rescue groups are you know spe cpa's that provide these services so anyway that's what we try to do with the film and we're hopeful that it will have significant impact over time as dozens of communities get to see.

But I honestly still think it has a lot to offer. There's actually an awesome If you're shopping vintage store called vintage. Bunk the Williamsburg tends to be a little bit pricey. This. Sure, I buy all my jeans there. The five dollars You get really cool accessories, you five dollars Hidden Jim rate waterfront views, and stand. You can end with a move yet Nighthawks. They have missing Indy films and also great cocktails and food Brooklyn bowl has great. Concerts output has fallen dance parties. If that feels a little bit too pretentious, You can walk right into green point which has a little bit of a chiller vibe. But also rooftops and cafe is a little bit morbid open space, feel green points for. You'll also get a really rich Polish culture. So you can definitely eat well. There nearby is also Bushwick. Like I said, I used to live there for about five years. This neighborhood Israeli known for its street arts and something else. A lotta people I don't they know Is that Bushwick has a really, really rich brewing history. So there is a place called the Brewers row where you can actually go and see the facades of Greece that date back to the 1800s with. Germans came, they brought their lager Beers. Some of these breweries have been turned into Your bars. One in particular to visit is the well always got fun event going on there and you great beer history, and the Bushwick collectives is in Bushwick and that's the teen plus blocks of St arts. You could wonder with your camera for hours than just be engrossed in all of these murals, most your meant to beautify the neighborhood. You do get a few political ones, but it's very interesting. Another area is Herald gardens, which is also near Kabul Hill in Boreham Hill end-user right neighborhoods to just wander round. Particularly Carol gardens is known for its Brown stones, so you can go and see this beautiful Brown's Jones with these gardens in the front. It's really nice than lots of independent shops and cafes. You can wonder right into Brooklyn Bridge Park and Dumbo is also there Another, But that's known for the Arts. So that's also a a great day at Atlantic Avenue. Is my favorite Avenue to walk down, it entered the park. You can walk down. There's all these boutiques. A lot of them are out of my price range. I never thing, but it's fun to watch electrical bedroom there. At this point were recovered doing the image Wing rather than the overview in the in detail were kind of Emerson will. So let's go back and start over again and do more details. He sort of us in Williamsburg. An interesting You mentioned it was gentrified intensified is one of those interesting looted terms because half the people listening went who gentrified bad and have people Let's make with which it Right. I like going to testified neighborhoods and it. It does depend. Obviously the downside of jet rication Is it a tends to push out a lot of the people who've been there for years, especially people who don't have as much money as a tourist. It can sometimes be a nice neighborhood in terms of it's got the kind of things you want to see, And yet it's safer cleaner and things like that. So I'm not. Going to try and decide whether a shirt for Gatien is good or bad. When you see it's gentrified, what's going on in Williamsburg right now? So
