You can also listen early on Amazon music or early and ad free by subscribing to one plus in Apple podcasts or the wonder app. Ash. Boy, do I have a story for you? Oh, play it on me, girl. I'm ready. Okay, so it's midnight on March 10th, 1997, a typical Saturday night and a small town in central California. Mostly people are home in bed, but inside a dark club on the north edge of town, there's a party going on. High school kids drinking and dancing, you know the scene. It's like, I like the way you work it. I got a bag at all. It's exactly like that. All except for one girl who stands alone in a corner. She has blond hair with perky bangs. She's watching a couple at the bar or more specifically a guy. He striking in that 90s hipster way, you know? And he's clearly interested in the redhead he's talking to. The girl in the corner watches him closely, as the couple slides off their stools and head out the door. She counts to ten, then she follows behind. Outside the moon is full in the air is crisp. She sees them enter the cemetery. It's an old graveyard, you know, like big crips inspired stone graves with faded letters dating back like 200 years. She squints into the darkness, and that's when she sees them 50 feet away, inside and overgrown crypt. What are you talking about? The boy has his arms around the red head. His mouth pressed down on her neck. She sees a look of terror in the red head size. She reaches into her jacket, her hand closing around a hard wooden object. Then she heads towards the guy. And then she's on him. Not tonight, mother. She jams the wooden object straight into his heart, and the guy dissolves into a pile of white dust. That's really not where I thought we were going with this. Welcome to the hellmouth weirdos. This isn't real life. This is Buffy the Vampire Slayer and we're watching the whole thing.

"Some power and authority. That guitar was a game changer. It was an instrument that Buffy could take with her whenever or wherever she wanted to go. And that's the next thing she did. She got out. She got accepted to the university of Massachusetts, and she got the hell out of javax USA. I was wonderful. It made all the difference in the world to me to get out of town. It was like I was free for the first time. I was free from bullies and creditors. When Buffy moved away to university, her and Peter kept dating, and Peter straddles this really special time in Buffy's life. It's like he had a front row seat. He was at her first gigs in those college years when she was playing covers. These were traditional folk songs. Black is the color of my true love's hair. I remember that very well. Black is the color of my true love's hair, her lips are rosy fair I remember her singing a Civil War song called two girls waiting on the railroad tracks waiting for the loves to come back. One more blue and one more black waiting for their loves to come back. Take a minute to think about Buffy on campus. She started her freshman year in 1958. The student movement was starting to pick up, nonviolent protests, sit ins, marches, students rallying behind things like civil rights. Speaking out against nuclear testing, the draft, the Vietnam War, and the folk music scene was big on campuses. There was a cultural and musical revolution building, and Buffy was right in the middle of it all. Do you remember performing for people the first time? A little bit. I was performing a little bit, but it wasn't a big deal. There was a folk music club. You could get together with other people and play their guitar and Taj Mahal and I used to go into the stairwells and play music together. Taj Mahal went on to become a famous musician. He's won Grammys, and he's still playing shows. And he's still good friends with Buffy. Oh God. Yeah, we were classmates. And there was a coffeehouse off campus, and by the time I was a junior, I had started dropping in and singing my songs at the coffeehouse off campus. I didn't think of myself as a songwriter or entertainer or anything. I wasn't Buffy saint Marie. I was just a college kid. John is just trying to survive math. But she was a songwriter. She'd been writing her own music for years. She just hadn't played her songs for anyone. Once she started playing enough so that she could play in public, then there was always conversation about where it was going to take her. Peter sees the change happen, right in front of his eyes. It went really from bev to Buffy. He got to see her become Buffy. And pretty soon, she's playing some original material. Her own songs. Now that the buffalo's gone shows up in her sets. Can you remember the time. That you have held your head high and hold on your friends off your Indian claims proud good lady and proud good man? And this song is so strategic. So smart. Buffy uses her words carefully. Lyrics like proud good lady and proud good man. She's learning how to channel her politics into her songs. And she's not pointing at you. She's inviting you in. And once you're in, she starts feeding you the facts. Or are you still taking our life a treaty forever George washing signed? Buffy song was inspired by the proposed building of the kinzua dam, a dam that would flood 10,000 acres about one third of Seneca territory. The Seneca nation went to court to fight it, but they lost, and the dam went forward. Flooding grave sites, and homes. I probably don't have to point out how this sounds like it could be happening today. Removal of indigenous people off of their territories for access to resources is an old story. One that is still going on. Though it's so fight against coastal gas like pipeline comes to mind or land back lane in my community 6 nations or the site C hydroelectric dam in treaty 8 territory. I could go on. Now that the buffalo's gone is one of the first popular native protest songs. And the song is still so relevant. Now the buffalo's gone was, you know, really trying to make some sense to non Indian people who could help and to Indian people who needed to get up and yeah allowed if we were to retain our rights if we were to reinforce our hearts in order to carry on and to make this generation more viable and more powerful than the last one. I was trying to make sense to people I was trying to bridge the gap between the problem and the solution between the reserve and the city between native culture and the rest of the world's culture. Puffy was more interested in as she was fully developing and beginning to play in coffeehouses and all. She was really much more focused on getting to New York and the big time than she was having a small town in her boyfriend. Peter and Buffy split up, but they stayed in touch, writing letters. She had very good handwriting, much better than mine. Aside from being cute, these letters offer this really unique window into Buffy's career starting to take off. Well, this one's typewritten. I can read it. A little better here. Dear dusty. I guess I really owe you an apology for my laxity and writing. Last weekend out of the 6000 recognized focusing on the east coast, 90 were invited to sing at the Indian neck folk festival in branford, Connecticut, a dead of the Kingston trio, Pete Seeger, Richard dyer Bennett, shown by his bob Gibson. And a whole lot. Buffy still in university. And she's on the same bill as Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, right in the middle of the folk scene. Musicians right on the cusp of making it big, like really big. No better time to begin than no. I guess? Besides, I'm running out of paper. Open to hear from you soon. Buffy. Buffy graduates in 1962 with a degree in philosophy and teaching. Which is what she thought she'd end up doing. Teaching. But before she settles into that, into the life she thinks is waiting for her. The road calls. I went directly from college to Greenwich Village just to try my luck at singing. When I arrived, you could go to open mic evenings where you could wait to turn and get up and sing a few.

And I think that wherever I was, I might not have fit in. So I think that it would be a mistake to just grab it the first thought, oh, it was an Indian girl and a white community. Of course, she didn't fit in. There just was no consciousness of indigeneity. But I don't think that's why I felt so isolated. I think I felt isolated just because of domestic abuse. Her brother was a creep. And I don't know if you want to put that in there. But he was a creep. We really didn't know what was going on. She came to my house. And you could see she was upset. She said he was bothering her. She was being abused. And I was so naive back then. I mean, we were just kids. And we didn't know anything, but I remember her. I'll never, ever forget the look on her face. She was terrified that he was bothering her. And I didn't know.

"The 50s, when Buffy was growing up, were part of what's known as the golden age of the western. Think John Wayne, cowboys and Indians, frontiersmen, the wild west. If you went to a movie theater, you'd be hard pressed not to see an indigenous person getting shot off a horse. And or you could turn on the TV. And see these stereotypes aimed right at kids. Like in this episode of howdy duty. You white my name, bob Smith. That's right, Indian, yes, coming out. What should I meet my friend here? This is former club. This is mister Indian. How flub dub. For me, there's something oddly validating about this stuff. These terrible westerns and racist shows, it's like having the racism receipts. A thing I can point to and say, see, this is what we've had to overcome. What we are still trying to overcome, we are still trying to reclaim our humanity from damaging stuff like this. And that's why I think it's so lucky that Buffy had her mom to tell her to question things. Even if her mom didn't have the answers about Buffy's indigeneity, she told Buffy to go looking, and she pointed her in the direction of someone she thought could help. There was one person in town who was indigenous. I don't mean he was an Indian in his last life or one.

"Hello? Hey, Janice. It's failing. Hi, Galen. How are you? Good, how are you? Oh, pretty good. This is Janice palombo, a childhood friend of Buffy's. I met Buffy in the first grade. We were just friends from the very beginning. But Buffy wasn't Buffy in those days. No, she was Beverly. She was Beverly, bevy saint Marie. She was bevy, BEV VY, and I was jammy. JAN NY. And so when you and Buffy were growing up, what kinds of things did you get up to? Oh, all kinds of things. We used to go ice skating. We were in girl scouts together. We were in the glee club together in school. We went to dancing school together. We liked the same boys. In the summer, we went horseback riding. There was a place called Mackenzie's in Wakefield, and we walked everywhere. Wait till it was a pretty town. It still is a pretty town before yuppies were yuppies. If you know what I'm talking about, it was split. One part on one side of the tracks was central Wakefield with the stores and the churches and buildings. It was very pretty. Just beyond that was the Italian section where we lived on the other side of the tracks and Buffy lived on a hill. And at the higher you got up that hill, the more expensive houses were, and we were sort of right at the low pot, people from the top out of town looked down on the notes on the people from the bottom. If we were not good enough for them. I have mixed feelings about Wakefield. It was a strange snowy kind of a town. It was totally white except for one family. So white that Buffy calls it javax USA. I was made aware of the fact that I was an Indian and that I was different from other children and that that could be good. Or that might not be so good depending upon the way I handle it. And I didn't handle it very well for a long time. When I was in high school, for instance, I tried to be just like all the other girls, and I cut my hair short, and when they bleached their hair, I tried to bleach my hair and I wore their lipstick and I tried to dress like them and I was just a person who never fit into that and I was miserable. I was born in Saskatchewan to parents that I never knew. I was orphaned or something. Canada has a long history of removing indigenous kids from their families. First, through Indian residential schools, then through the child welfare system. And we're still living in this. The circumstances surrounding Buffy's adoption and adoptions like hers were often murky. Records were lost, missing, or withheld. But we do know that as a baby, Buffy was sent over 2000 miles away from Saskatchewan to Massachusetts, her adoptive parents had lost a baby and Buffy was there to help fill that void. From the outside the couple looked white, but Buffy's mom talked about being indigenous, about being from the MiG ma nation. She and her family were very proud that they were part of what they called micmac. Micmac is an anglicized pronunciation of her mother's nation. Now we say migma. But back in the day, micmac was used pretty regularly. And I should also let you know in this podcast, we're going to use the word Indian. Buffy uses it and many First Nations folks do when we talk to each other, not all, but some. Anyways, you shouldn't use it unless you are. You get it. She would tell me, yeah, we're partnering. Mick Mack. But she told me that they didn't know anything about it. So when I grew up if I wanted to know, I could go find out for myself, which was the best thing that they could have said about me. It's hard to grow up as a First Nations person. I mean, it's great in a lot of ways. I'm not gonna lie, we're pretty awesome. But representations of us, even today, accurate representations of us are too few. Sure, it's getting better and that's great, but I cringe when I think about what Buffy would have been exposed to as a kid. If you're an Indian growing up in the time and the place where I grew up, you didn't hear about Indians, Indians were just passed over in history books, Indians were ridiculed in cartoons, Indians were caricatures, were a thing of the past, Indians were dead, stuffed in museums and leave it be unless you're going to make it a novelty of entertainment value. My mother let me know that that's not the way it was. She just let me know that the history books were not necessarily true..

California Moves to Legalize Infanticide
"Now, this is something that every single patriot, every Christian, every person that has a moral compass needs to focus on what's happening in California. It's almost hard to believe what's occurring through the California legislature. California legislature moves forward with Bill to expand the killing of babies past the moment of birth. Quote, actually legalizing a fantasize in an abortion bill to expand the killing of babies past the moment of birth up to weeks after, according to opponents of the bill, wick said that while other states wick is the sponsor here, Buffy wicks. While other states are adopting increasingly aggressive measures to limit abortions, California continues to protect reproductive rights. Wick said the only bill, the bill only applies to pregnant women who should quote not be prosecuted for losing or miscarrying a baby, or for quote a tragic situation during pregnancy. Section 7 a of the bill states, notwithstanding any other law, a person shall not be subject to a civil or criminal liability penalty or otherwise deprived of their rights based on their actions or emissions with respect to the pregnancy or actual potential alleged pregnancy outcome, including miscarriage stillbirth or abortion. Or period natal death. From the California family council quote, this bill specifically protects a mother from civil and criminal charges for any quote actions or omissions to her pregnancy, including miscarriage stillbirth or abortion or perinatal death. The definition of perinatal death varies although all include the death of baby from 22 weeks of gestation to 7 days post birth or more.

How Do We Reconcile Our Love of Works by Problematic Creators?

"He could just do what he wants. And it will. It will make someone feel so small that they'll just leave. It'd be like to what you want love. This is a ahead a little bit. But i really love when they're in the locker room and it's buffy in the locker room by herself and he's like creeping in fucked locker room but he's like two feet taller than the lockers way okay but that is interesting but also when peewee. Herman carries david arquette away like a baby. Right after merrick. Walks up to luke. Perry was also drunk and he carries him away. Baby like that about white. He care about him. I don't know that's why that's why i thought he was a fucking. Yeah i know like what like and then later when he's talking to buffy extra like right about now because like you said there in the locker room. I think it's about now. He's like yeah. No i'm a watcher. i can't do anything. It's all on you but i'm like wait. Why are you carrying luke. Perry around yeah. He definitely intervened. It was like two minutes after like no two seconds after vampire was just there. Like what are you talking about. Why are you getting involved with the her man. That's all that's also for buffy. Has to tell him. Excuse me this is a naked place I had so many problems with that. Because like yeah i was wondering why okay if he had to go and i get it. I get it giles. Merrick of sutherland would have the fuck. You wanna call yourself. I get it. You gotta talk to sarah michelle. Buffy stewart swanson. Whatever ron swanson you gotta talk. You gotta talk to the chick you gotta let her know the vamp vamp happenings going on you know you gotta let her know the sich on the fucking on the up down is what you gotta do it in the girls locker room for real bro. You just wait till she walked out like she's like she's just said s- she said doesn't naked place but i was like okay. Well it's an issue to me. That is an issue. It's definitely an issue. Yeah it's an issue to me. I don't know. I don't know about you merrick on a trust you so also. That isn't the first meeting that he had with buffy because right before that he meets up with her at a gym and he's trying to tell you know buffy the vampire hunter and she's actually like fully convinced that he's going to deliver a trust fund to her. I forgot all about lake. He's probably talking her for five minutes and like every like two minutes conversation. She's like oh so the graveyard is where i'm getting my trust fund away. We're going over there and then you're giving me my trust fund. That's actually what. I really like about this interpretation of buffy as a character if she she definitely is not as smart as tv show. Buffy she isn't but also i do feel like early on in like The show we or even just like flashbacks of like naturally maybe not really on this show but just throughout the show. You get flashbacks of what buffy was like before she found her. She's a vampire hunter and she was definitely like that kind of person. I feel like the movie is kind of like really winning it..

"And then you explain to me who he was and then i realized that i was very familiar with who he was and his story. But i'm just so ignorant that i did not i don't know i didn't get the memo. Get the memo's i mean it's i guess it's fine it i feel like it It made me realize the. It's one of those few things where i feel that like our difference in age shows. I don't i don't necessarily think there's a lot of those things. But i think not. Having josh sweden as a household name was one of them. Yeah i'd never heard the new my life when i heard of him. I thought he was some type of like a brand of wheat cracker like one of the fancy ones with the really like thin edges and like the nice salts on them and like like spice parsley kind of flavor. They like do that. Fancy stuff like chicken and biscuit. Yeah it's all those are so good but yeah like it's like a joss weeden you know like oh you wanna get like guinea. Get me a box. Aja sweden at the store. You know some of jobs wheaton like to me but apparently it's a whole person who spun like all of the buffy stuff. I mean like angel. Buffy did lake what everything with that he Did some of marvel stuff the first event movie and age of altron. He stole justice league out from a man who was going through some pretty rough times. And you know what it's crazy. I knew about all of that did not know. The name didn't even ring a bell when i saw it. I was like josh. We didn't sound like sunday. Fuck yeah man and also a guy. I don't necessarily know a lot of the details. Haven't read up much on the situation but a guy who's kind of been had some allegations thrown his way As of late So if i it seems like it's he's he's kind of rode that wave of like a low key like king of nerd them and then became like walmart level nerd them and then now shifts coming out like oh no. We don't like this guy so household name turn into Popular week cracker brand. I mean i kinda ride in that classic wave of of oh yes seems this is the guy this is the guy who makes the stuff and like we like we like the stuff you know and then Maybe got a little too commodities and then maybe now. Maybe he wasn't the guy maybe he hasn't been the guy the whole time. And i don't know it's that sorta separating the art from the artist is what will be doing today right. Yeah i mean because really. I'm i'm not gonna be trying to like suck josh sweden's dick but i'm kind of going to be like sucking his dick during this because i really love his movie and i've been watching a lot of you lately and.

"So it's like if you re race your past you never learned from it and that is so messed up like that is the worst is like going through a life where you just erase the things that were hard or difficult or problematic or troublesome like. You can't do that. I would do anything to erase what these people went through like. When working with these people right. Of course i will go back into the past and be like never read these books. You know but it doesn't come down to that it doesn't come down to me. It has nothing to do with me. Other than how i be supportive today. Yes i would be supportive. Today is to be like if you had any concerns about anybody financially. Like he's fine. He's going to continue getting residuals from things for the rest of his life. It doesn't matter if we hate him or not as the same way as just weeden is. There's no way is going to run out of money even if he doesn't have a new job because he's already done so many things and there's always still going to be a royalty is like as much as you know a lot of less people are gonna read right now. That doesn't mean that you know there's not going to still be trans. Metropolitan copy is all over the place right leg. That was one of the most impactful books of the nineties. So regardless of how. I operate there are still people who will buy those books and that'll probably display him on their shelves. My brother has a trans metropolitan tattoo. Isn't that terrible. Like he's just like god but it meant so much to him right. You know when it's something permanent like that too. It makes it a lot harder because it's like oh man is on his head. He can't get that removed like that would be the most excruciating Anyway long complicated subject but the thing is is that it meant a lot to a lot of people. You can't go back in time like you can't undo it and then once again we learned from this guy because it was like no the funny jokey uncle is like being a piece shed you know like he's being sketched ball and he's like manipulating all these women and sometimes i'm a i'm worried that we don't learn you know so it's like this didn't happen because it did happen we have to learn from it right -solutely absolutely if i were to pretend that buffy meant nothing to me that would not help me be a better creator than josh sweden and that's the goal rape or a better person right a person just like none of that changes anything and also buffy is part of the cultural zeitgeist. We're gonna be talking about that forever. It's so many of the shows that i love right like it's it's such a big influence on a perfect segue to talk about. You asked for some alternative recommendations. Thank you so much. We love to talk which is supernatural tv and movies. And yeah i mean. I think that buffy has had such far reaching influence on feminist. Tv in particular. What i'm just going to never watch feminist. tv again. And i needed..

"Dawn says literally people had a rule that we don't be same room together alone. And i was just like so. How many of us have experienced that because i was like. I have experienced that. I've experienced way older dudes being really really creepy to me and doing it in a work environment to the point where it was like okay. Well the way that we're going to fix this is we'll all just be present and leg not let this guy be alone with you and it's just like well that's great but also why is he still coming to work less because if everybody has to change what they're doing just for this guy to show up in the morning that is wild you know. Yeah and and you know. He threatened godot. And there's so many layers there. And i think you know back to buffy and talking about michelle and and sarah and charisma anthony head. Who who play giles. He was like i'm devastated. I didn't even know. I thought that i was someone that everyone looked at like an uncle. But you can tell it uncle when something's wrong and no one could tell me and it makes me really think about who i am. Yeah like he wasn't even implicated in that man can actually reflect on his behaviour. Think about how he could have done a better job. And josh sweden has said bob kiss like has gone radio silent. I don't even know if his twitter pages still up like he has completely disappeared. Pretty much since. I don't know if he's done. Much since ray fisher came out with the allegations and then charisma carpenter came out pretty quickly after that but not quickly. I think there's actually a good bit of time. But she talked about how she was really grappling. With what fisher. Who if you don't play cyborg in the d. c. Cinematic universe. They call it e you and i can never remember what the eib stands for entertainment universe. And it's just heartbreaking stuff. And so for me. I can love the things i have. That are important to me like buffy and i can never look at them the same i. I really can't. isn't it the same too. Though because like the overall question is how do you absorb these medias that were created by people that you are very uncomfortable with and you might not necessarily always love their stuff. But sometimes you do and that's kind of what makes it a little bit more complicated now. I think that the thing is with that is like we can address something that we talked about. Literally on this podcast. Which is warren e list. Right leg before any of those had come forward. That is a writer who has written so many works that were you know for whatever. Reason groundbreaking like. There's a lot of stuff there you know. I could never say there's nothing they're like. This is somebody who i was reading my entire life right. So if i'm gonna say one that it actually affected my thoughts because we've talked before about how a lot of these people i'm just like. Yeah already didn't like that. Buffy meant something to me and my team years. But i was already mad about it before a lot of other people were pretty much a bucket in sales so i think a lot of us now are like oh my god. I can't believe. I watched it but i have things like that to of course there's a lot of medias that are problematic even stuff where it's like. Nothing's ever come out about this or that but it's like but you know some of the stuff that happens on..

I don't know if he got worse but more came to light about him right. Yeah exactly or me or mia person who's never met him. You know like got worse like oh right but then also yeah we get into it alive in that episode where we're just like here's actually why we don't like it. It's not necessarily leg. I'm so mad at this guy or like resentful of the fact that literally the only feminist anybody could name was josh weeden for like ten years in hollywood but also what. When was he reminisced remind me of the time. But so we replied with that to julie and julia replied. I don't expect y'all to watch the numbers at all. I'd love to hear discussion about its premise.

I don't know there's a lot of misapprehensions of that case as well as so many cases but a lot of them are so anti woman that i always get a little bit tense whenever it comes up.

"So stay we thought we would warm up a little bit because We were delighted to find out that one of your favorite things in the world. Is Felicity. So. What is it about felicity? Well. It's a couple of things I think. For me growing up I I didn't realize it until. Now but I was really obsessed with the WB like. The WB. Children out there will be like, what is she talking about and I think for me? I became obsessed with felicity because she was like I mean obviously Carey is stunning I'm talking about like I know are but I think really affected. Me Was it. It was about this woman who didn't know what she wanted, but she knew she wanted Ben and saying it now it's like such an eye roll but I just thought it was so cool that she. Didn't do anything that her parents or friends wanted her to do and she like just dropped everything and moved to New York for this guy and Mike as a eleven year old a twelve year old I was like yes. Hi. I'm this is I'm going. This is where I'm going I. totally forgot you're going here. So unbelievable. I know this from high school. This is Susan this is. This is. versity felicity while. All right. So I'll see you around. and. Just told myself that I was going to do the same thing felicity did and obviously I mean I there wasn't a boy that I was like in love with and moving to New York for but I researched that like the school that they were modeling it after. Was Nyu, and so I decided that when I was gonNA turn eighteen that that was the school I was GonNa go to. So it's crazy to say now and you know when I did turn eighteen deny auditioned for nyu I didn't get in and so it was heartbreaking and all that stuff and obviously I realized I was not in TV show in not felicity. But then I auditioned my sophomore year and then I did get in and so I moved I dropped everything and moved to New York did you also? Like seek out a job at Dean and Deluca to really out. Absolutely, and they were like no ma'am and I was like please and it's crazy because i. think when I went in there I couldn't afford like not even a Bego I think it was like seven dollars an onion Bagel. But I was like for me like walking Dean and Deluca was like walking into a museum felicity just had an extreme profound effect I. Mean even now I go back and just watch the pilot discussed. Makes me feel good. So getting a little bit into your work to words that we noticed while researching up on, you two words that positively came up a lot to describe your work either by like your own words or other people describing your work. Were dark and weird. So I was wondering what those words, those two words mean to you. I think if I'm honest both of those words like. Growing up had a negative connotation for me I. Think. People often thought I was extremely weird and you know I was a pretty dark kid in terms of the stuff that I was into I mean publicity isn't that dark but I was really into. Buffy obviously but also these. Books where like it's just you know murder and incest, and then I think a lot of my friends were reading goosebumps which I was into but then like my sister was reading just rl Stein. So I was like wait what's that and so I kind of ditched goosebumps because it was like. And got into Rl. Stein. The adult books recalled Rl Stein and so I would read those a lot and those kind of just kept my. I think I was obsessed with a lot of stuff but I didn't WanNa read the Kitty Shit. I really wanted the adult books and I fought really hard. To like, trick my parents into getting me the staff and pretending it was a PG and That's just show you the kind of kid. I was just like I was beyond curious like I wanted the content I wanted I just wanted to grow up really

Some of the highlights include Sayers.

Lots of other great information shared in this episode as well. We really appreciate it. If you could help, spread the word shared the show with somebody in your life, and without further ado here we go with Sayer G. Hello Sayer welcome to the PODCAST. Yeah really say to have you on the show. This has been a long time coming. And I really loved your new book regenerate, and in there you share your story, which wasn't familiar beforehand, and and it goes all the way back to childhood, and the sickness that you went through as a kid and a teenager, and you share a whole bunch in there that you went through such as money having your tonsils removed, and you ended up having hip surgery later on, and it goes on and on overweight unfit. You ended up I think it was about at age seventeen. You had surgery on your sinuses, so you went through quite a bit. And my question for you is what was the catalyst behind all that well yeah I think for me. Getting into natural advocacy was allies were destined sesame given. Experience by. Acute episodes the Bronco Asthma you know. They checked me up enough in US multi fight lungs working. So from very early on I just. I struggled allies, and then came later in my life to ernest on nutrition, exercise and mind body practices so ultimately. That was guest that I felt so much because than it needed a passions. WanNa share you know the alternatives. Natural Approaches that I know can in some cases provide so much humor well. Let's talk about that. Turning point and I know this took place in your first year in college so. I become exposed to alternative health ideas. Well, you know my sister was someone who is naturally inclined to health food stores for example, I was way more conventional member over time I started to. Like the of that way than starts looking to literature that you'd find in these helped stores and taking on raw shrewd in the mucus diets, as it was known by Arnold era and a member thinking well. I've never not eaten. Save Council products. What would happen if I ate raw? And within three days of just going ahead and eliminating house, my asthma went away and never came back. It wasn't so raw. Fruit is, but the BUFFY Diet says exclude common engaged delicious. Western foods such as cow smoke novas like my. Moment, and when you hit that piff any moment, obviously, you've been going through a lot for so long. What was your initial reaction? Were you angry that you've been through so much? And you're just finding this information now or obviously? You're excited about digging in deeper in seeing what could come a vet, but talk about those initial reactions when you start to feel better over the course of a few days. That's such a great question because I think it's true that while I was elated excited, because for the first time in my life I didn't have to carry an inhaler around and think that you know. My body was fundamentally cursed. You know cloak in I was shocked to fine that you know something as simple as excluding cosmic for my genetics type would have prevented me from the Medical Mary around downward cycle. You know that I went to some level. There was a part of me that became. Hannah triggered to like oh my. What is my parents? Know this you know. You. Pour me. A. Journey retakes. One of these starts reclaim. Our health is you do? Realize there is a bit of. archetype underneath some of the symptoms. You know would've been more convenient for me to say. The doctors are right. This pathway humid of causes it, but you manage symptoms by ways. You should thank us for saving your last person. Sandwiches that the way we eat in this country. Is Disease Camale, N detectives and I'm barely one of the things that happened for me to sort of took the red pill that speak event. Lady but I was also like Gosh. We need to change things people now. There are these ways to heal known. About and this big shift in your life in your health happen when you're early in college as I mentioned. What were you taking at the time?

Emily also tackles the question of whether a viewer can separate art from the actions of problematic creators in a timely me to ask a when I asked if she'd be willing to be a guest on the podcast. She seemed genuinely surprised saying she doesn't really consider herself a stylish person. I explained that the goal isn't to only feature quote fashion. He says that would be so boring. I'm so glad she agreed because our conversation was good so good in fact that we ran out of time and had to wrap it up just as we were digging into one of my favorite topics. Carrie Bradshaw not to worry. Though she still had plenty to say. I also asked emily to give her professional opinion on whether my mother and father were absolutely terrible parents for letting me watch twin peaks at nine years old which he happily did.

Oem Wearing kind of Nice sneakers wearing these these sort of Weird Green Corduroy Sneakers Love Them. And because the name of the PODCAST is what? You're going to talk about what you were when you interviewed for Your Job at New York magazine so I think this was around Two Thousand and three or two thousand four and at the time I was working as a freelance writer and I was writing for places like The New York Times magazine and doing both short pieces and long pieces. But I mainly thought of myself as a writer and Adam Moss who had worked at the Times was the new head of New York magazine and he was hiring new staffers and he called me to see whether come in and I thought they were gonNA call me to be a writer there which frankly and tells a different kind of clothing. 'cause writers are often shrubs But he actually wanted me to come in to interview to be the editor of the culture section. It wasn't something that I was sure I wanted to do. I was very ambivalent about it so I sort of winged it when I went in for my interview in a way that I don't normally for things and I'm convinced I got the job because of the clothes I wore which is true of almost nothing else in my life but I somehow put together an outfit. That was stylish showed my genuine uncaring about whether I got the job which is often the right combination for a situation like this and it was more stylish than I actually am so what I wore is dark blue jeans that fit right in for the period were sort of the right style gene because at the time they were kind of they had that sort of low weight but for for whatever reason I was actually pulling it off. Because I don't really have a body that works that great and that kind of jeans but I had good ones but the main thing is I wore. I had a a blue crushed velvet sort of waistcoat jacket that I had bought vintage that had silver buttons and my mom had given me these actually quite nice low ankle boots that were kind of a brownish yellow alligator skin or something that had stacked heels wouldn't stacked heels those two items actually looked good like they were distinctive. Strange Somewhat Bohemian. Downtown things and wearing pants always gives me a stronger sense of authority in a situation like this. I think I normally would have gone to a job interview honestly wearing an alien skirt a simple top jacket to try to look professional. But I think partially because I genuinely kind of didn't want to get the job or at least was doing it. I know that sounds almost disrespectful. 'cause it was such a good job but I was ambivalent embitterment about becoming an editor instead of a writer. So there's this part of me that was just like whatever like I didn't really rally right so I so I sort of magically managed to hit on this outfit. That kind of looked made me look way more downtown selective idiosyncratic and actively stylish and a young woman way and it went in and I have to say and like The other thing is Adam. My old boss and Hugo Lindgren. Who was also interviewing me They are guys who actually care about fashion in different ways and I walked in and I actually saw that they liked my clothes like this sounds stupid but the dumb way in which I was like. I've hacked this because so many things are stupid first impressions and there was this way in which because I looked kind of free wheeling and like I'm matched the part or something that helped anyway. I did get the job and initially said that I would take it for three months because we were just putting together the prospectus of the magazine and then ended up staying there for many years and Adam is an incredible boss. It all worked out. I never dressed like that again. I was GONNA say if he was hiring me in any way as you know perhaps delusional suspected that I was just sort of acting a role that worked for the job interview after that. I did not wear good clothes to the office. I did try to dress up a little bit. I went on a shopping trip with my I think he was. We were dating. I married my husband who's very stylish and has great taste and we were living in the West village and we went for this walk down. I think Greenwich Avenue had a couple of different shops and so I went out and I sort of went on a shopping trip to try to buy a few items. That seems like an editor at New York magazine would wear these items. When did you buy do any of the things were because I don't know brands but I bought some things that were kind of medium pricey and seemed like statement things I was never able to use them or put them together? But I do remember the first day I went in the office. I mean my entire impression of an office like that was like thirteen going on thirty hundred percent. I so I was trying to. I was trying to raise my game to ROM COM level which remind notion of medium also. Yes exactly the truth is I mean. People dressed in black in New York and a lot of people who are in fashion dress very neutral and the one time I ever wrote about fashion. I was really struck by the fact that I was like wait. This is not made up of butterflies like this is a lot of thirty to fifty year old women wearing black and like simple expensive chunky statement hearings or something. It's not a situation in which people are trying to stand out. Visually so are wearing off the runway necessarily says gallons and no. I think that's what people think of fashion back. I'm trying to remember what else I bought. And then at one point when I early in having that job I also attempted to have power lunch as a sort of a joke with a friend at Michael's and midtown because he's like a fun thing to do and on the way to that. I bought some bought some clip on earrings. That had on the way to the line. Yeah on the way to the lunch. I literally was like I'm GonNa like it but again it was sort of as a joke because my friend and I were like. We're now like media. People are power lunch area. They they were like strange. Chunky rhinestone earrings with red and blue stones in them that were round clip bonds rather than dangling or they were sort of you know punch in the face upper east side ish food jewelry of some kind so I remember. I stopped at the store. So those were my power. Close is basically what I'm saying for New York magazine. Are you somebody? Now that considers yourself AH shopper. No I actually don't like to shop. My husband likes to shop though so I often will go shopping with him and he will pick out things that are good and he's responsible actually for some of the best things that they own because I mean we'll go to a vintage store and he'll pick out something that I personally wouldn't have picked out because I'm just a highly pragmatic shopper. I just I find it boring. I don't like going through the racks. I don't like spending money and I also don't like searching for bargains so I'm like the worst combination of ten no India and I and I don't really enjoy changing and changing rooms and trying various things on and all of that kind of thing but I do like having some nice clothes so I go either with hammer or with my son. It's actually fun. I used to shop with my son when he was a little younger and then he would read things one to ten so that was fun. That's does he do that now? Yeah I mean he's he's we haven't gone shopping in a while I mean and also he's he's about twelve now so I don't think when he was eight he actually he's. He's much more interested individuals than I am so he he had a lot of opinions but he's also very enthusiastic so pretty much. No matter what I tried on. It was from eight to ten. So that's a good person to shop
William Prince on 'borrowing from future happiness' to write new album
"Is voice is like the low rumble of thunder storm on the prairie. His songs a glimpse into the heart of a man who's lived through the broken to come out hole on the other side. William Prince is an initial based singer and songwriter from PEGUIS FIRST NATION IN MANITOBA. His just released the much anticipated. Follow up to his Juno. Winning debut album earthly days. His trajectory is taken him from small stages two major concerts and tours all over turtle island and abroad including opening for the legendary Neil young an icon. Buffy Sainte Marie his new album reliever was recorded in Winnipeg in Nashville and is out now. I'm so pleased to welcome. William Prints back to unreserved for an extended conversation today. Hello My friend Rosanna. How are you? You look a little travel where you good. Oh yeah is it The friendly way of saying how terrible I think it's just the hat I lucked out and I found a half that fits my head and I wear it everywhere now. So that's that's the big change. You look fantastic. No thank you thank you. So let's start with the new record. What inspired you most on this album? Oh boy that That starts the conversation years ago You know Reliever was was born in in stages it was written at so many different times. It was written in real time panic. I say for some part of it. It was written halfway through reflection and then finally at the point of revelation. There there's so many different points Throughout this album that I'm really proud of making it through and being here where we are today on the other side and reliever was really just about collecting and documenting the songs. I was writing while I was going through. You know one of the harder times in my life so far so you were going through some stuff the loss of your father the end of your relationship finding your place as a father to your son. Wyatt what does the name Reliever mean to you? Reliever really stems from the idea of course of treatment. Almost an anti an antibiotic in a sense. You Know I. I think of the songs What they've done for me over time dealing with those those things like grief and separation and total change in one eighty of environment from this point of is this working. Is this something I'm going to be able to do? Is there a place here for me? to now being at a place where. I find myself doing this all the time. My responsibility is become to to be a good dad and be good to my family and make art and it's it's really An incredible thing so that was the faith. I was Kinda holding onto borrowing from your future. Happiness is what I say. You know. Having that faith for win the time would come now. And we'd have this record. I'd be passed the things I was working through and Able to celebrate them rather than live in a state of grief reliever was was born in the concept of love to I. I was thinking about how the greatest Major League. Baseball pitchers in the world will throw a few innings until they're retired for the game and the relief pitcher takes over and says I I got this. I thought you know on those days. When we're with our significant others those we care about say we're not throwing the best game and then that other person can kind of take over so is really borne inside baseball? Metaphor that That grew in complexity and I found the title track itself kind of in the middle of everything and it really started to tie the two halves together. The part where I was living in real time making a diary to my son showing him and letting him know where I was during this time. His infancy And then ultimately showing him that though I was going through this really difficult time Your your dad stayed steadfast and resilient and made it through and I hope that's the kind of man Human BEING HE TURNS OUT TO BE IN THE END William the beauty of your lyrics or that you are so vulnerable you give so much of yourself in your music. Why do you share so much with people? WanNa I think it's what we're most in need of Today is the willingness to be vulnerable insincere. You know more than ever. There's more to consume and more to get over faster than it's ever been. I think the things that still exist amongst the human condition are those themes of love and you know making it through the everyday life and Going through those challenges that we will encounter over the course of our individual lives. I came into the term Saunder over the past few years where you sit and imagine that the complexities of every other individual in the world has a whole history just as long just as an in detail just as thorough just as grand as your own and I think that's a lot that's a lot of hard drive space. You know a lot of files out there to pick through and you know there are a lot of them that are similar from person to person and the ones that are easier to deal with me are speaking about my family and I have no problem because this was my way of coping. This was my chance to deal with these things face on was to write about them in real time and do my future self a favor that I knew that I've survived everything up until this moment and I will continue to survive and thrive in the environment that I've created for myself now and I'm that's a huge privilege. That's that's really something so I chose that while I'm here while people are listening. I'm going to give the most honest and forefront representation of what I feel what I what I'm living through and hopes that it. Will you know? Bring US pass this more superficial more artificial age and get us back in touch with with vinyl records and phone calls and and things like that slowing the pace to appreciate. Just how beautiful human condition actually is now earlier? You had said that in creating this album you had to borrow from your future happiness. What did you mean by that? Well it's really all that faith is I think is I. I was going through like you said the the loss of my dad and Estrangement and not really feeling like I was In a place to ever really even have a relationship again. I thought I'd just be an artist and a great dad now just travel and in a low point truth truthfully. I. I don't want to understate. Just how tough things were I went back to to Peguis are? I lived with my mom for a year. You know I I. I worked on the PEGUIS radio to keep my mind from going crazy and the slower days and drove to the city. Every day to see my son is very opposite. A glamorous was quite testing. It's like what have you done? You derailed yourself from A Post Secondary Education to pursue this dream and so borrowing from future happiness. Was this idea that I would look to the future when the darkness breaks knowing that. I think there's going to be a time when I get to play music all the time to be a recording artist and share my story with you know auditoriums Or even town halls even fifty people at a time. I knew that there was part of me. That wouldn't let go over this dream that I was chasing to be here to to do this for a living so I I with the good faith that it'll probably work out. I think it will work out. I believe enough that it will work out. I'll just watch it unfold so that now when we're here when you're here opening for the Neil Young's of the world and and travelling in. It's not normal to be applauded by thousands of people a Week. You know not everybody gets to to have that and it's really sending the message that my music belongs here. My voice is being heard. And that's everything you hoped for as a songwriter. So I'm as happy as I imagined if not more for certain. This home actually sounds Fairly optimistic you seem more rooted. You've gained some wisdom in the last few years. What do you attribute to that confidence like the the difference? Now I I I was joking that When I made earthly days it was like I hope nobody minds that I'm doing this. You Know Jade Bird says the last thing. The world needs is another narcissist so going from that I wonder if anyone will even hear these songs other than my family and myself and I'll drive around with a CD in my car. And finally feel like I did it. I got an album and I was hoping to to make it outside of Manitoba now. It feels like you know we're GonNa go everywhere but the time it's it's all said and done and to have that in my heart to know that there there's a humble audience waiting for a follow up. It gave me the peace of mind to go into the studio with Scott again and Dave and be in Nashville being when pig. Bring these two pieces of the project together and Believe in my songs from the start not waiting for them to be validated. After I I trusted I knew I'm aware of my abilities. And I record songs and play shows. I was trying to prove that so hard for so long and show that I'm you know Just as valid a songwriter artist as anybody else. And now that we're here. I can just focus on bringing about the Best Art. I can create

Egypt going to extreme lengths to quash dissent
"Meanwhile in each of the government has taken more than two thousand people into custody after recent protests their industry international calls it the biggest crackdown yet under the Egyptian president the BBC selling appeal joins us from Cairo hi Sally hello how are you doing. tell us more about these mass arrests in each of two thousand why have all of these people some of them children as I understand it been rounded up that's the big question and I don't think anyone can give a clear cut answer to that but it only goes back to September the twentieth when a hundreds of protesters took to the streets in Cairo in Buffy's square the birth place of the twenty eleven revolution and in other parts of the country they were calling on presidency seat to step down and the also trumpet again as the military rule old together and this my own means was unprecedented since president CC came to power in twenty fourteen no professor could ever set foot in Buffy square the government has severely restricted the anti regime protests so that was a day to remember and I was there and I've heard the people chomping and they were really angry they they called on the president to leave power and the government seemed to respond with a very heavy crackdown because in the days to follow hundreds of people have been arrested according to human rights lawyers was we've been speaking to nearly two thousand but some of them have been recently released we don't have the exact number yet but we know that a large number of them have already been released and we're talking about journalists activists politicians even lawyers who are representing detainees well during their work alright you mentioned people taking to the streets for the first time since the new regime has taken place and and why they're doing it there was something a building contractor who spoke out about what he thought was I really corruption can you tell us a little bit more about him and and spark of the protests yes this is true he he was the trigger and he is a building contractor who flew to Spain recently and he's living in a self imposed exile he published a number of videos on social media that went absolutely viral in Egypt some some people say his name is Muhammad Ali and some people here in Egypt are even saying that he has become a replacement for Netflix because everybody's watching him and he said that he's been working with the army in construction projects for nearly fifteen years and he uncovered some details about the mega construction projects kind about by the government and he said that the president sees himself and top army generals waste millions of Egyptian pounds on building lavish presidential palaces that the country does not need as well as mega construction projects that won't benefit normal Egyptians and this comes at a time when many people here are living from hand to mouth the government has imposed also austerity measures that isn't that are hitting a lot of Egyptians and according to the district's released by the government recently nearly one third of the Egyptian of Egypt's population are living below the poverty line so when Muhammad Ali started talking about the details of the construction projects this has enraged a lot of Egyptians actually and perhaps this is what really push them to take to the streets flooded small just Mohammed Ali himself it's the diet living conditions they have been going through in recent years. have any of the protesters been charged with any crimes I've been talking to some families of those who are being interrogated now and they have been reprimanded in custody for nearly fifteen days as some of the charges I remember them a sister of one of those behind bars told me that there are there is a cliche list off charges that includes protesting without permission spreading false news belonging to a terrorist group these are the main charges and one of the most interesting things that I've heard from lawyers that security forces they they arrested even passers by people who do not with it and take part in them in the protests we just happened to be there for some reason or another and the end of the arrests continued in the days to follow so it wasn't just on the twentieth of September but the old also on the days that followed and this is why many lawyers are calling them random arrests that have nothing to do with the protests but they just want to intimidate the normal Egyptians that's B.

Is Amazon Profitable?
"Is Amazon profitable and the really short answer is yes it is actually it's quite profiled profitable stuffing two thousand fifteen going forward. Amazon is being consistently a profitable throughout history. If you've been following damn business model one of the critique that the company head head over the years is that it was striving always at very high valuation nickel bed to each earnings but the problem is if you're looking at Thomason just from the earning owning standpoint. Probably this was the wrong perspective. Because of course the company has been using a strategy combined operational and financial strategy that we can catch machine and really this is about the generating operating cash flows for for for the business even though running at very low net margins so so it means that you're running with very low net profits now betty few highlights from from from singer so yes. Amazon is definitely Prov flu profitable as being so consistently starting from two thousand fifteen and if you look at the numbers from two thousand Eighteen Amazon actually passed for the first time at ten million in profits which is a lot whoever when we look at the Amundsen we need to understand the Amazon business model. It's very diversified. Rennell company an and you know when when we talk about the debt company that comes in with talking about the bunny which has many business models we dean so we know we are not just simply if fighting saying Amazon is an ECOMMERCE is way more than the Tomlinson is an e commerce is a lot from business model it has within Amazon days another platform which is called. Aws this which as we would see as being the main contributor or the province because eight rance with different economics compared to traditional Amazon business model and then he does other you you know Cam prime and you know the other cities like Protesting services offered the bathroom which are tied together in a way Batuta also running. They'll Saran separately because again. Amazon is a huge company so if we look at the the profits from the province simbone it's very important that we don't get just too much focus on buffy salon. I mean it's very important that we look at the bottom line. Any business model is to be able to be viable back at the same time we want to look at another viable which is Betty Betty Betty important for any business. It's cash it's actually not not even catch the the bank is actually the cash that you can generate for the abbreviation means. Do you have available cash at the end in the short term that you can reuse it to grow the business and you can reuse in the short term to make sure that you have contraction for the business and Amazon is being a going. It's cash consistently and actually a successfully throughout the years so it has always been able to to actually ensure as at a certain amount of short-term cash through tweets ovation stance also to the fulfillment centers the original deficiency through through the fact that in any case Amazon gets money from customers right away and then he pays you know the the the senators in in let's say thirty or sixty days so they kief chiefs said that the gifts that the company advancement advancement in in dental financial resources which Dan the company has to get back to those sailors but yet it had this timeframe keeps Amazon the ability to to invest the money and then make mining them pay back to you know those those practices I mean we we cannot get the the Amazon uses each celebrity du Du actually sort of expand the timing takes to pay back to its supplier something that's that's a legitimate concern weekdays at Amazon each company that takes advantage over other that source of concern. I mean it's it's I used platform mm-hmm and I think when when you're in business fitting Boston to highlight that you need to options for your business even when you are actually building up as more companies more more business unique understand the logic of this platforms because a when you're a drone within those platforms than chances are is that you donate options and then you need to follow what Thomasson thus which is not the best scenario. If you have a business you following the lead Obama Zone and you don't have options you are in bed sedation. You better understand how you create you don't distribution platform to enable an an answer your own distribution of products and then of course use other platforms like Amazon as noxious and not a as a primary option in my thinking in terms of business but having said that if we look at the reasons for two thousand seventeen eighteen the the major contributor has been Amazon. Aws that I covered a pre-match from any perspective on for week embiid come. I'm GONNA leave awesome references at some links on these notes and really Dave look recent celebrating income out for two thousand eighteen free since did did contributed to over seven billion overeating king in operating income considering over two billion overeating reading income in two thousand eighteen so it's a it's a UJA teach contribution but as I said since two thousand fifteen going forward Amazon has been consistently a profitable when for the first time the company posted in two thousand fifteen number six million Improv is actually there was really. I think two thousand thousand nine two thousand ten when the company posted this province but you know I'm seeing these this was the year that they were posted consistently growing growing very fast. We defend different economics thanks to Amazon. Aws because many say that Amazon has been running always with negative province in reality he look at years from two thousand three two thousand eleven actually the company was running with Posey Ovitz and then you know there were a couple of deep in two thousand twelve and then doesn't fourteen and then again posting a
Being Multiplatform Is the Only Way to Stay Alive With Fader's Andy Cohn
"Welcome to the digital podcasts and brian morrissey this week. I'm joined by andy kern andy as president and publisher of the feeder which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary serie any welcome. Thank you for having me brian. It's great to be here okay so twenty years. You're not a failure at the time though you were at spend competitor right. Yes i was at spin and then i was at the source magazine yeah right around the time. Is this a different era for magazines right. It sure was so lots changed since then but the fighter has continued right and still magazine bimonthly but now i would guess it is a multi-platform brand. Yes it is multi platform because that is the only way for us to you. Know stay alive okay. I think i got there. I've been there sixteen years now. <hes> and came up through the more traditional you know the time period of print magazines were revenue was essentially if not a hundred percent ninety percent an advertising supported through print advertising and then maybe some events here and there some newsstand sales for some of the stronger newsstand publications ends and that was really the beginning of the end of it <hes> from a revenue stream standpoint and it was a boom period <hes> especially in music because as you head spin and vibe and the source and brands really starting to embrace hip hop as marketing platform and vehicle so <hes> <unk> brands as big as you know general motors ford coke and pepsi it wasn't just the street where brands anymore that were starting to really embrace that culture and <hes> to leverage you know the those that genre of music for marketing advertising so <hes> i think for those publications and what ended up happening is they became so heavily driven by circulation and celebrity and who was on the cover and had to just be as big possible artists as you can imagine the other you know jay z on the cover of the source or your radiohead and coldplay on the covers of rolling stone and the fader and <hes> the bigger the circulation got the more you can charge for advertising pages so zaveri simple business model you know at the time which <hes> changed as we all saw <hes> you know especially <hes> brown two thousand eight so it was two thousand eight the big inflection point yeah i. I think it's interesting because coming over to fater <hes> i came over in two thousand three at the time it was a quarterly publication which is what we're actually back to now <hes> and they the guys that started it were from the music industry so they started fater more out of access to music because they were doing a lot of non traditional early early day street team digital marketing for record labels for specific releases so they would have the first outkast album before it would be serviced to survive vibe or a rolling stone or is it then they didn't have print or journalism or magazine experience but they had this access and felt like they needed the document cemented so that's how feeder started <hes> was based on this early access so started as an emerging music magazine where it was artists that you weren't really that familiar with yet which called plan cover no coal plan the cover at the time it could have been at some point at some point so what what was interesting to me because i was a journalism major in college i grew up with my father was a newspaper editor at newsday and a writer you know for forty six years and i was obsessed with <hes> you know just music journalism and when i came out of college i got a job at spin on the business side of the magazine and you know it was. Was it like you said before. It was a very different time is very circulation driven. The whole business model was based on selling ads growing your circulation and your rape base so for me what happened was is because of that. I was at points in time at both of those publications where they were either sold <hes> quincy jones and and the people <hes> bob miller bought spin and brought it into the family with vibe and the source hit such a big mass kind of mainstream removed that you know to go up from there is hard and you have to really do things that weren't in your dna and your original mission statement so what happened was isley. Spin spin is an example is where it was the quote unquote alternative to rolling stone. They were putting artists like p._j. Harvey and tori amos and you know rage against the machine on the covers when rolling stone was now starting to put david letterman and buffy the vampire slayer as they were trying to become so big and more of like and entertainment weekly than an actual music and cutting edge lifestyle magazine which was in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and for its earlier years so i think the example is when spin got sold. They started putting a lot of pressure to grow the circulation because it wasn't an independent privately held company any longer by bob optus tony junior who is a big music fan and believe in you know promoting these kind of upcoming artists they started putting kid rock and creed and natalie attlee imbruglia and really experimenting with very mainstream things that never fit or seem to fit with the original mission statement was for spin <hes> so you know you can call it selling out but i think what it did was alienated. The core audience of those music publications that came there for something in the first place and then those magazines evolved because of the business pressures so you know put became much less of a challenge much more predictable like you knew jay z. He had an album coming out he'd be on the cover of the source you know so that's like and then in ninety nine ninety eight you started hearing things like lime wire napster during the internet and all of a sudden those long lead publications couldn't really compete with the discovery nature of music anymore so they by the time these the longley publications came out everyone already listened to anne knew about a new of everything that was going on through the internet so you know when i was growing up as an older person had to go into record stores to find you know different genres of music and it was very intimidating. If you hurt someone talk about dancehall you're like dance all for for that now. Dancehall type it in two seconds and you're listening to dancehall like through napster and lime the accessibility to music and all of these genres were so far reaching now that it usurped. I think the purpose of the longer lead you know print titles so when fader first came out was really interesting and caught my eye was that the first issue i saw was the third issue had had most f- on one side and back with the angelo together on the other side and and i didn't really know of who those people were and i thought it was really interesting so i think that around ninety nine when fader started hit this inflection point where the kids were now growing up with accessibility to every genre of music there was not like spin the alternative music magazine ad source and x._l. The hip hop magazines you you know it was here's something that's really reflecting of. What's kind of going forward you know and in multiple genres of music like someone even myself i was i call myself from the walk this way generation which is seeing you know the convergence of rap crossing over into the the mainstream and i think you know starting to really get into music in nineteen eighty six in one thousand nine hundred seven all that just became like second nature to when i was listening to led zeppelin classic rock or public enemy and rock him and you know the fat boys and the beastie boys and run dmc. It was all l. cool to me. It didn't matter it wasn't segmented so i think when failure came out it kind of like captured this moment in time that was really well well timed <hes> because it was speaking to people that had that accessible so it had some kind of advantage over some of its bigger competitors that had gone very broad. Yeah i think what fader was at that. Moment was what was kind of a combination of the best of all of those other publications from when they first started and with what their original missions were when you look at spin starting in nineteen eighty five and rolling stone starting in nineteen sixty eight they were counterculture. They were edgy. Spin was writing and hiv aids column which it was crazy at the time you know very alternative rolling stone. Had you know a crazy investigative journalism pieces and p._j. O'rourke and all those hunter thompson awesome you know the things that they were doing so i think it just you know fader came out with this like fresh voice that was speaking like a and not to sound cliche but he was speaking to this new new generation of really hardcore music fans but the same kind of secular pressures i guess as they call them in the business world you know were exempted right. I mean in two thousand and two thousand nine <hes> if particularly if it's print advertising driven <hes> music industry's gone through a lot of changes <hes> explain that inflection point and sort of how the business needed to pivot because a lot of a lot of competitors didn't really make it as they were or made it in in shrunk informs ripe right. I think being that failures mission was to cover kind of what's next in music and knowing that we weren't going to be able to rely on celebrity for any kind of real scale or mass reach. I think early on <hes> we were very <hes> very interested in doing events and like not only just putting an artist that you've never heard ever seen before on the cover of national magazine but also like doing events bringing those artists out to perform live and finding ending ways obviously early days internet to continue the conversation online so it wasn't just like you were an emerging print magazine and then had to move onto the next issue you talk about a whole new host of people you're able to like start building the brand in other ways and be a little bit more diverse so i think because we did events early on and it gave us a like a real strategic advantage in that everyone then started to do events and i think we had an expertise and ability ability to do events that became a huge ultimately a huge revenue stream for was his fader fort back fater four was just eighteen years gold <hes> and i think that's become you know it's become a one plot digital platform for us like almost like a second brand go to to the fader <hes> but in two thousand eight when print advertising was decimated we were able to kind of lean lean more on these events and really lean on the fact that the events gave us a little bit more of like a multidimensional approach because we couldn't we wouldn't wooden of survived if it was just the print advertising or just going online or going online because there was display advertising even at that point in time was <music> very you know <hes> is very <hes>. It was unknown territory. The dollars were like pennies on the dollar versus what that the meaningful meaningful print advertising before collapsed was you know so like from a c._p._m. Standpoint from a total gross revenue standpoint it didn't it's not like one. Just filled filled the gap on the other side so for us. I i do point to the fact that we did tons of events and were able to really like you know you get brands involved on a multiplatform level <hes> so i guess like ten years ago or so probably ninety percent print right y- yeah yeah so what is it today. <hes> percentage wise print is probably i would say in like the twenty to thirty percent of the total revenue pie. <hes> experiential is probably the biggest experiential in video because through video. It's that means not only only us creating our own proprietary fater video but we also do a ton of white label video content for big brands so that come to us for ours boris that iq our ability to understand how to work with artists so companies land access to the art and i think that's the the real like magical thing about failure of over the years i think when you strip everything away is the artist access that we have because we have double down on these artists so early on in their career when no one else is giving them that type of platform yet that we've been able to establish these you know great long running relationships with both those artists and their management and not not have to go through agents or middle middleman like give an example of that an artist the the stuck with for i mean they were smaller. I guess when you started working <hes> i mean artists like i think drake is a great example <hes> just because of how he is and how big it's gotten he did make it. I think it started at the bottom apparently <hes> no but drake used to come up to our office and plus music and he was a great guy and very humble <hes> and you know he almost kind of sold us on you know <hes> on his his skills and we started we did a blog post you know of one of his early songs and it did really well and then <hes> and we put him on the cover in two thousand nine. It was his first. I ever magazine cover. We went up to toronto. You went to the nursing home with him to see his grandmother mother. We spend time at his house. <hes> and we just did like a lot that i think no one had done with him at that point because he wasn't really anyone yet and i think that's what our dna really is is like kind of curated and identifying people that we believe in their music and their longevity of
Africa And Seventy Percent discussed on All Things Considered
"Let's go now to the center of Africa to a place we rarely hear from Goma is a sprawling border city of two million in Democratic Republic of Congo it's trying to keep at bay what's become the second largest Ebola outbreak in history and Paris either Peralta is they're welcome hater hello Sir give us some context here because I understand this Ebola outbreak has basically remained in two provinces in Congo at least up until now but it's clearly spreading to Goma there been four cases what is gonna doing take to keep Ebola from spreading even further well lots and that's really important because this is a major transit hub and you notice it as soon as you land before coming into the airport you're asked to wash your hands with the bleach water solution and the nurse will take your temperature restaurants banks cellphone shops the squeeze hand sanitizer as you walk in and this is a country where three kisses are the norm and people are taking precautions they're giving what is known as the a bold look reading which means you tap your elbows to say hello and shaking hands are giving kisses and of course health authorities have vaccinated more than one thousand people in this city who they believe may have come in contact with the fires and I understand it to the people who survived the virus single member treated with new drugs what are these new drugs can tell us anything about them yeah I mean this is huge they are the first time that scientists have identified clearly effective treatments for people who have Ebola and these are two regiments which help the immune system fights the virus in the were in trials down here in Congo they were able to save about seventy percent of the people who were given the treatment you mentioned that health workers are trying to vaccinate more people but since Ebola was detected in Congo last year there has been difficulty getting more and more people vaccinated why that is in security there are more than one hundred armed groups in this part of Congo any bowler respond there's have been attacked and that is fueled by a lot of mistrust and conspiracy theories that westerners and the government have created Ebola to try and kill people here in in in Congo so how concerned do people seem in Goma right now about these most recent cases the whole tone is feeling the effects you can't move without seeing medical trucks and tents but I was in the neighborhood today were people they have set up roadblocks because one of their neighbors had been robbed in two of that neighbors children had been shot by police and they kept telling you look so much money is being poured into a bowl up but nothing is being done about the everyday skin security that we face I spoke to Fidel Buffy Limbaugh an activist here and he thinks this simple outbreak offers the chance for the world to look at how it has continually filled Congo one of the things that he points at is that the U.

Netflix, CBS And Sony discussed on The Frame
"One day at a time the Latin x centered remake of Norman Lear nineteen seventies TV show of the same name is back for another season. Netflix canceled the series back in March. But yesterday pop TV CBS owned cable network. Announce that will pick up the show for a fourth season. Lesley Goldberg is the west coast, TV editor at the Hollywood reporter, and she joined me talk about the deal and told me, why Netflix canceled a series to begin with Netflix. Like many of the other streamers and the upcoming ones will not and do not, and will not ever release exact viewership data. So it's very hard to measure shows or movies success. But, you know, we'll look, I interviewed Netflix, head of original Cindy Holland back in April. And one of the things that she said was that didn't make economic sense to bring back one day to time for a fourth season part of what how networks does make its decisions is. They look at how much they're spending on a show and how many new subscribers. It's bringing, which of course, we don't really know either way. I mean that's looks reports. It's quarterly subscriber gains and losses. But you have no idea, how much of that is tributed to their decision to renew, or cancel the new show. But with their with the billions of dollars that they're spending on original programming every year. It's the, the decisions that they're forced to make our will fourth season of show like a of a show. One day time bring in new subscribers. Or would we best be us using the millions that we're spending on that show to do a new show that could bring in more, one company did feel the economics made sense, and that is pop TV so who is pop TV? And why did a show like this make as much sense to them as it didn't make to Netflix? Well, we should before we even talk about pop TV we should give credit to the producers of one day to time. And that's Sony Pictures television. The independent. Studio and they were successful able to save this show. This was their business dealing, and this is look this is ground. This is TV history. This is the first time that you're seeing a scripted original show that was picked up and aired originally on a streaming platform, moved to a linear network like pop TV pop TV originally known as the TV guide network. It used to be co owned by Lionsgate television and CBS about a year ago CBS wanna buying full control. So this is a niche, basic cable network, that is owned by CBS, and, you know, look, CBS, digital platform all access what really express a lot of interest in picking up one day at time, but because of the original clauses in Netflix contract it prohibited. Any other streaming platform aka any Netflix competitor from picking up this show within a few years, and nobody's gonna wanna wait multiple years to pick to revive a show that winds up. Being expensive. You have to re promote it people have lost interest. You know you you strike, while the iron is hot. And that's exactly what pop TV did as for why they picked it up. I spoke with pop TV president Brad Schwartz yesterday on Thursday, and one of the things that he mentioned is, this is a very, very small network. They have only a handful of originals shows what be it scripted and unscripted. That's largely network that is home to repeats of some big pop culture, syndicated shows, like Buffy the vampire slayer Dawson's creek the original Beverly Hills nine oh, two one. Oh, charmed. And the reason this was interesting to them is first and foremost. Everyone CBS from Brad Schwartz to the executives like Joe Iannello and David Nevins over at CBS creatively. Loved the show, and it made sense for pop because this isn't network that as I mentioned is very big on the stall. And they looked. They're sweet spot. Viewers are people who love stuff from the eighties nineties, look, no further than what their syndication, their syndicated content is ROY. Right. That's the sweet spot Dawson's creek. You don't get much more nineties, and that Buffy the same thing. And the fact that, that this what they picked up is actually a reboot of show, that, that many of its viewers already have an awareness of because of the original from forty years prior it really hit the sweet spot, so creatively. It's an IP. It's, it's intellectual property that it's audience already knows said that. It's, it's unprecedented for a show to go from a streaming service to a cable network. Does that mean it was legally difficult to unwind the deal at flex and get it on this new platform? So in terms of setting, you know, the legal precedent. This really was a business it move. So because Sony owns the rights to the show it become becomes there to figure out what they wanna do it. However, I will say that Netflix does own because they paid for and have a contract to keep those first three seasons. Netflix will remain the exclusive home streaming home to the first three seasons of one day at a time. But in the new deal Sony gets a whole lot of rights back from Netflix. Because of their pass on season four. So that means that Sony will now be able to sell the show internationally which it never did with Netflix because Netflix is in many international markets and Sony. Also in a couple of years we'll have a streaming library starting with season four. And if the show goes five six seven through ten like producer, Mike, Royce told me he wants it to they're going to have a streaming library to sell. So, you know, in APR twister fate one thing that could happen later down the line is Sony could say, hey, we've got you know, seven more seasons of this show net. Flicks, do you want buy the library to go with the first three? And even if the one day at a time fan base didn't have a lot to do with coming back on pop TV are they at least happy now that it is coming back overjoyed? I mean, it's, it's like Christmas in June. This is this is a deal. It's never been like I said, it's never been done. A streaming show has never moved off of that to find another home. Usually, it's the other way around where Netflix has been heralded as, as the save our. Show champion because they've revived so many other shows in recent memory. I mean designated survivor was canceled at ABC and moved to net flix, FOX cancel Lucifer, and Netflix picked it up. I mean, there's so many shows that Netflix has done that with. And now this is the very first time. Netflix said, nah, no will pass and left it to the studio to find a new home for it
