Those children are picking your that evening. I'm erin burnett out front tonight. Chaos more than twenty eight hours.

The kids as far as we know are still separated and no one in the president. Trump ended his own policy later that summer just months after putting that policy into place that policy may have ended quickly but those images remain the photos of children behind chain link fencing the audio of children crying for their parents. This was and still is an incredibly heartbreaking story and it will probably leave a mark on this country and the trump presidency for decades to come right now. Trump's successor joe biden.

Ah, court order says they're not supposed to stay in these places for more than three days, but the government paid shelters for migrant Children that are appropriate for youths have run out of room.

While Many Asylum-Seekers Start Entering The U.S. Again, Others Are Left Behind
"Long, perilous wait for hundreds of asylum seekers stuck in Mexican towns on the US border may soon be over. The Biden administration has begun allowing some of them into the U. S to make their cases for asylum. Reversing policies put in place by former President Trump. But now, as NPR's John Burnett reports, even more migrants are surging to the border. Sandra Zuniga and her son Elder, are some of the lucky ones. They were among the migrants stuck in a camp in Matamoras, Mexico, amid the rats, snakes, mosquitoes and mud. On Sunday, Zuniga and her son walked across the International Bridge received a notice to appear in US Immigration court and settled into a cozy condo in Brownsville, Texas. It's rented by a volunteer who befriended her. You said the thought Yesterday you had the glory be to God Day I arrived. I spent the whole day crying to end up in such a beautiful place with my own bedroom and bathroom way past a great test on the camp. Some people even doubted the existence of God. We overcame. Zuniga says she fled Honduras with her son to get away from an abusive husband and violent extortionists in her neighborhood. They stayed in the camp for a year, Trump had suspended most asylum applications because of the pandemic. Biden has restarted the process, and Zuniga is among the early beneficiaries of the policy change. She taught kindergarten it a free school inside the camp. She recalled, when her students realized that their ordeal was finally over, won't mean Yo causes billing me you're on. There was a little boy who told me goodbye crying. He always asked me teacher. When can we leave here? He gave me a big hug and said through his tears. Last teacher we are crossing over. There's some 25,000 migrants scattered up and down the border between Matamoros in Tijuana. Many have been waiting well over a year to press their asylum cases in the U. S. Happy experiences like Sandra's have created high expectations and anxiety among the others left behind. US.

Asylum Seekers Are Allowed Into U.S. For Their Day In Immigration Court
"Now, the odds for asylum seekers are long. But the courts are so slow that he may live in the United States for years awaiting his court date. So the Biden administration's new policy just changed. Manfredo is life. The story is different for other people behind him, including some people in the camp. He just left. NPR's John Burnett was at that camp this week and is on the line. John what you find Steve Well, the most infamous refugee camp on the US Mexico border is almost empty. A month ago, it was teeming with more than 600 migrants. And today there are only a few dozen people left. Now it's looking like a deserted shanty town. With all these colorful camping tents flapping in the Gulf breeze and no one's inside them. City workers are hauling out great piles of garbage and personal belongings. U. S immigration agents began processing the folks there first, in part because so much international intention was focused on this wretched camp with its snakes, mosquitoes and mud. Ah, so that explains why Manfredo was so quickly able to cross the border. But who are the people who have not been able to cross? Well, they're mostly Central American migrants have already lost their asylum cases. One of them is Donny Lopez Rossa, a 28 year old Honduran. Had been to the can't many times over the past two years, and I'd met with him before, and boy did he have a rough time? The first time I met him, he was lying in his tent recovering from a vicious mugging. His face was a swollen mass of bruises. Gangsters had tried to extort him. Barasa is still there because the U. S immigration judge didn't believe his story that he fled Honduras to escape the thugs there. And the corrupt police in his country. And then now he's lost his appeal so that ASA says the mood there is bittersweet. He says there's sadness because he and others were left behind. But there's happiness because so many have been able to leave and finally get into the US. Why is he remaining in that awful camp, though? Well process says he believes God will still deliver him across the border. If the Biden administration will have mercy on people like him who suffered in that camp for so long, and the camp has been there for nearly two years, and you know, close relationships have been forged in adversity. Some people fell in love, including PAGASA. Come in, come in, he says. I was with my girlfriend for more than a year. She and her daughter crossed the border last Friday. She didn't want to go without me. She cried and cried and cried, but I had to convince her that she had to

I think today was the new year's eve house party that you feel you have to gauge new year's eve show up. You do the rounds for a couple of hours and then you sneak off to a bedroom and go to sleep or it's just the hangover the day after we sit there and just drink cups of tea and no answer any calls the hanger day off to the the banging nights out the ends in where you're just gonna sort of pick up pieces and clear mass.

I didn't understand human level so they walk among us. Catherine apparently say it's not but i didn't enjoy today i just dino it it just i mean there were no crowds. We need the. We're going to be crowds that that was a shame How how much. How much was the fact that there were no quarrel to contributing factor. To the fact that today was a was a bit of a dump squib. I mean this has been the dump squib hof of proceedings burnett. We've we've we've made to conceal that on the podcast. You know there have been highlights will will big those up as best we can on today's pod but how. How much was it the crowd. I think it was definitely parts of it in that. You know we're all.

I compensated in the way that i would've done with the crowd and then there was silence and i had to say oh i forgot. There's nobody here quite open because it's you might as well just be honest and admit it's weird. It is weird at the same time. I feel like for people like us certainly me anyway. I shouldn't speak few too. But i just i'm so i love watching sport so much when it's when it's tied and when the stakes are high the not having the crowd gives me something else and we. We definitely tapped into that at the us open and through some of the other events because kind of we. We didn't have any choice. It's either embrace that or be down about it all and if you actually listen and watch especially today as this was the first match i've ever seen of nadal at a grand slam. We had the two but at a grand slam especially with the little question marks about the back and all that sort of thing and being being pushed as hard as come pasha possibly push him. I loved just watching dow compete in this role style without any cut-away as to the crowd or anything just so pule to be out to. I felt like a like a sneaked into private match and could just watch. And and so i got something from that and i was intrigued by some of the matches exhilerated. Not really and it is. It is more pure than other slam tennis or any tennis that we've seen without crowds because they weren't prepared for this. There's no attempt to conceal the empty seats. There's no crowd noise track on standby it is exposed before your eyes and is

Good morning and thank you, Rachel. There are currently tens of thousands of people with active asylum cases. How do you decide who will be let in first? Rachel. We are building a program to prioritize individuals who entered the remain in Mexico program that the Trump administration built. What we are doing is going to be triaging them essentially to prioritize those according to the date on which they first entered the program. At the same time, however, we will be sensitive to acute vulnerabilities, individuals. Who are suffering especially and seek to accelerate them as well. This will take time to build, but we are poised to begin the program later this month. Um, and guidance from the White House says that you're gonna be able to process up to 300 people a day at between what two and three ports of entry along the US Mexico border. Is that right? That is, that is correct, Rachel. It's going to take up a bit of time to scale up to that quantity of processing. But that is indeed our objective. We're very focused

Biden had campaigned on reversing President Trump's tough immigration policies, but the Trump administration and built in obstacles to hamstring his successor, MPR's John Burnett, has more. The Texas lawsuit is the Biden administration's first legal headache in the arena of immigration, and it won't be the last. I think this is clearly the attempt to handcuff the Biden administration, at least in the beginning office stuff moves are for shifty is a senior fellow with the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute. And I think the Trump Administration. It's raining days tried to do everything it could to prevent the Visor administration from ushering in its new immigration policy. The outgoing Trump administration quietly signed highly unusual agreements with at least four states Texas chief among them The agreement, saying, in essence that if Biden officials want to make changes to some of Trump's immigration rules, they have to consult with the state's first immigration advocates were quick to brand the lawsuit baseless and said it won't withstand appeal. But the argument carried the day with Corpus Christi Federal Judge Drew Tipton, a Trump appointee. He wrote that the release of Deported ble immigrants in Texas quote Establishes a substantial risk of imminent and irreparable harm. He slapped a temporary restraining order on the Biden administration and said Texas has 14 days to come back and make its case for a preliminary injunction. No comment from U.

Biden administration gets to work on reversing Trump-era immigration policies
"The pandemic is his top priority than immigration appears to be bite. And second, he signed several executive actions on immigration yesterday and assault on President Trump's most controversial policies and by then sent a bill to Congress that offers a pathway to citizenship for more than 10 million immigrants who are in this country illegally. NPR's John Burnett covers immigration and is on the line with us from Austin. Good morning, John. Morning, Noel so many new White House initiatives on immigration in less than 24 hours. Yeah, it's mammoth. It's a complete repudiation of Donald Trump's crackdown on immigration. Biden signed executive actions to throw out the so called Muslim travel ban to Temple to temporarily halt construction of the border wall for the next 100 days to rein in ice agents and stop certain deportations and to strengthen Dhaka. That's the Obama era program that shields the dreamers from deportation. These air immigrants who were brought here illegally as Children, and many have now become essential workers. Trump tried to cancel doctor but the Supreme Court kept the program alive. Okay, So those are the executive actions. And then there's the Biden Bill. How ambitious is it? Uh, well. In the most dramatic step, Biden was to create a roadmap to citizenship for more than 10 million undocumented immigrants. This is the big immigration reform that some people have been clamoring for for decades. Guidance bill says an undocumented immigrant could become an American in eight years if they pass background checks, pay their taxes and complete a citizenship test. Also, Biden wants to allow Maura refugees into the US who are fleeing war and natural disasters. Lawmakers, as you point out, have been fighting over immigration reform for decades. So what kind of chance does this have of passing in Congress? Yeah, it's going to be a tough sell Noel among the immigration hawks in this tightly divided Congress. They're leery that Biden wants to dismantle all those tough border controls that Trump imposed. There's not much in here about border security. Biden wants his Homeland Security Department to expand surveillance technology as an alternative to those steel and concrete barriers. Here's Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies. They favor less immigration to the U. S. It's a radical departure from all previous amnesty plants because it has no enforcement in it, You know, so I actually think realistically. There's no way to send it could ever pass this. Okay? He wants less immigration. How are immigrant rights advocates responding to this? Well, they're downright giddy. I mean, yesterday they came in from the cold for four years. They bemoaned one trump anti immigrant policy after the next There were more than 400 of them and all, but it's a new day. Here's Grayson Martinez process. She's an undocumented dreamer herself and head of the group United We dream. This is the most progressive legalization bill in history.

'We come from the stars': Indigenous astronomy, astronauts, and star stories
"When you think about the night sky what constellations come to mind. Chances are they're rooted in western astronomy but indigenous. Astronomy and scientific knowledge have been here for millennia. It's just not taught in schools or considered important within universities. My next guest is working to change. That nielsen is mick ma. And he's a professor in the department of astronomy and astrophysics at the university of toronto. Helping welcome thank you for having me. So how would you describe the way. Astronomy is typically taught in university course university of toronto's famous having a an astronomy course fifteen hundred students in it in that course generally starts from the early greek and roman astronomy aristotle type of plato pythagoras and they will channel through european astronomy with newton and cabrera hey and yohannes kepler and galileo of course the modern enshrinement is just one linear path from the romans to essentially neil degrasse tyson and today scientists. It's very very centered in the european model. And how have you been incorporating indigenous knowledge in your courses. I've been trying to do that little bit here. And there are courses tend to be quite full of material so adding new materials always a challenge. But i always want to make sure students come in and the first thing they see is not there. Expect a constellation. I don't him see a bear with the tail lakers major. I want them to see the constellation view. I nor a constellation of the bear or a punish shining relation that please and to recognize that these constellations reflect landover on i for in toronto or in new magi or anywhere and what is indigenous astronomy. And how do you define it. How is it or how old. I define indigenous astronomy. As being the the knowledge of the peoples of the land so and since burnett Nation state of canada would find it as the astronomers of the people that were here before settlers in colonizers so strongly of the astronomy of first nations big cree on astronaut and so on across across rhode island and every nation has their own perspective of the night skydrone interpretation in knowledge of it and so these indigenous astronomers speak to connection to the land and and to the people and that knowledge has been here as long as the people have been here and so is there a star story that comes to mind for you that gives an understanding of indigenous astronomy. Great story was the story of noon on the seven bird hunters which is a story so close your eyes and you're looking morni- guy and you see what we call the less the big dipper. And if you're looking at the big dipper couple of hours before dawn in spring you're gonna see the big dipper pointing downwards so the four stars make up the bear kind of facing downwards detail is climbing higher in the sky the four stars of the big dipper in the bull our immune the bear and then pours. What would be the handle. The big dipper are at the bird hunters and you go on those three stars to another four to get the seven hunters and the story starts by while you have to get up early in the morning a couple of hours before dawn to this constellation when we observe it at that time in the morning and we observed every day we can see the constellation circle around the sky. The constellation circles around sky every night as well. So we see the two different timescales in play but if we start in the spring at that to ask for dumb the bowl. The big dipper the bears pointing downwards. And that's when the bears waking up from tiber nation and decides hungry needs to go gather food as the bear leaves. The cave i robin spies upon the bear grabs it's bone arrow and size to chase it from hunt and the story continues through the summer when muniz running across the land so the constellations kinda flat across the sky and the birger chasing it as we get towards fall newness getting tired and stands likes to fight back so the constellations on one side again. Some of the birds have fallen below the horizon and must track the hunt but immune you and stands back robin fires. It's era a striking the immune in the heart killing it. Blood gets everywhere. All of robinhood flies into the tree shakes off the blood separate one stain on his chest. The leaves are now allred as a result. Chickeny joins robin. And they begin a celebration to cook the cook. The bear and to celebrate the feast harvest as we approach winter the constellation as the bears on his back again and reflecting the spirit of the baron sky and waiting for spring to come as part of the next cycle. So we see lots of different kinds. We have knowledge of the year as a calendar have knowledge of ritual and ceremony and we have connection with nature. So it's not just a shawny story. It's it's part of. It's a story that people in story of how to be.

Life is releasing sixty five full episodes of your show across all eleven seasons and variety. Shows never come back with full episodes because there's all these contractual rights and union contracts to get them full so this is really a tree time. Life says that these are handpicked episodes from across the eleven seasons. You get the opening one you get the closing one you get a couple of the classic ones end you get some real. So i'm wondering if they are handpicked episodes. Are those your hands pretty much. Yeah pretty much. We'll see about two or three years ago. I was working on a book about our show which was published. And i had to watch all two hundred and seventy six shows. I felt like norma desmond in sunset boulevard. I didn't watch them all the way through. Because i knew what the musical numbers were and i knew. Some of the sketches were. So i would fast forward but then there were some sketches and I that i had forgotten. You know in eleven years. We did all those shows and so it jogged my memory now. Not every show is a gym. Believe me i. I know that but i picked even some that. Were all the way really terrific because there might be one sketch or one number. That would be standout. That would be worth putting that show on. And so yeah. I had a lot to do with it now. You came out of the gary moore show and learned a lot of stuff there about what you wanna do and what you didn't want to do and if i have this correctly you signed a contract with cbs. When you left the gary moore show and sixty two it was like a ten year contract. Then you had to do a couple of specials and a couple of guest spots for the network but in exchange for doing that in a in addition to whatever money you got that if in the first five years of that contract you told. Cbs they had to give you like a thirty episode pair. Play one hour show just by. You're asking for it and at the end of it. That's how you got. The carol burnett show is that true. That's absolutely true. When they first made up the contract and that clause was in there i thought. Oh gosh i'm never gonna wanna be a host of a variety show it was. I just wouldn't know how or anything. So i never thought about it until the of the fifth year was approaching. And i remember my husband. And i would just put a down payment on a house in California and we had two little girls at the time. And we're looking at each other and we realized we'd better push that button and we would get at least thirty shows you know and so i remember. It was the last week between christmas and new years. And i called new york and talked to mike. Dan one of the vice presidents at cbs. And he said oh. Did you have a good christmas so forth. And so on. And i said yeah and i you know i'm calling now because i wanna to push that button. And he said what button and i said you know where you have to give me thirty one hour variety shows. He honestly didn't remember. So i'll get back to you. Yeah okay so. I'm sure he got dozens of lawyers out of christmas party that night in to go over to the contract and he called the next day and he said well. Yeah i see that carol but you know and this is true. Who said comedy variety is a man's game he said it's not for you gals. He said that you know. It said caesar milton berle. It's jackie gleason and our dean martin. And we've got this terrific little sitcom for you that we'd love you to do called. Here's agnes i can just picture it. I love that you remember. Do you remember what agnes was supposed to do. Or it was just one. They had sitting around. No because i said At the time. I wasn't even considering it. I said i don't want the agnes every week. I want to have a rep company. I wanna do a comedy variety show and they had to put us on which was just unheard of and i remember. We thought okay. At least we'll have thirty shows and we wound up having two hundred and seventy semi shows so it It paid off and I remember we. I wanted to get a rep company. They you know. Like sid. Caesar have with imaging coca and carl reiner. And how he morris on your show of shows. Yes yes show of shows. And caesar's hour can so we've put together our little rep company. I've seen harvey korman on the danny kaye. Show and danny show was going off the air that year and harvey would be available. And i just thought we need a harvey korman and then finally knowing that he was free we said we need the harvey korman. How did tim conway come to your show. In the first place was a guest years ago on the garry moore show but he did a stand up thing and we didn't do a sketch together. But i thought this guy is really funny so we hired him to come on as a guest and he did a stand up thing and then he was in a sketch and we put them together with harvey and they'd hadn't known each other before and it was just magic and so finally we were able to have them on every week and i miss him. I miss vicki harvey missile. We had the best of times you know. And i know this sounds pollyannaish. But we've loved each other. We were family. When i think of your show one of the things that i think about is midway through the run. Nine thousand nine hundred seventy three. There was a saturday night lineup that i still consider the best night of television in all of television history that on. Cbs on the same night. You had all in the family mash. Mary tyler moore show bob newhart show and then you were the closer i mean. That's a lot of pressure and a lot of prestige. What was that like to be part of that all star team back then well is wonderful you know and back then there were only three networks so we were getting audiences thirty million. You know this amazing. And i was so proud to be a part of that. I called it a team. I agree with you. One of the best nights of television ever your famous ear lobe tug. What i do know is that it was a signal to your grandmother If i've got this right and that you did it for the first time on your first tv appearance. Paul winchell and jerry mahoney way back in the fifties. Is.

Life on edited for the first time on amazon prime video roku and other streaming platforms before launching her own variety series on cbs. In one thousand nine hundred sixty eight. Carol brunette had starred on broadway in once upon a mattress in one thousand nine hundred fifty nine that same year. She began appearing as a featured player on a golden age. Cbs musical variety series. The gary moore show. Did you have a sense that you know. Tv was in its infancy than and the rules could be made up as you went along. The things weren't fixed in stone yet. No i did not to me it was. It was a stepping stone to broadway. I still you know. And at the time. I was in a show called once upon a mattress off broadway. And so i was doubling. I was doing a show and mattress but mattress was my big love. I didn't think i was television. Material all why not will once. I auditioned for something call. Oh i forget oh gosh it was like it was like star. Search only not You know reach for the stars or some kind of show like that and the mc came out and he said you're very good dear but you're too loud for tv. So that was you know again. Somebody said that. So i accepted it and When gary hired me i was kinda surprised you know so. I just kinda thought. No i'm i'm a belcher and i'm a comic and i belong on the stage and But in doing gary show. That's when the bug bit about doing different things every week. Oh and not doing the same show. Every night on broadway correct and so i could do these different characters and be dress differently and become different people sometimes three or four different people in one show and i i liked that and i liked having the rep company feeling and a family describing the carol burnett show. That's over national. That's exactly right. I patterned our show after gary. And of course after sid caesar You know who is a past master at it and had the great rep company and did all these different characters. And i thought this is what i mean because you could do musical comedy you could you could. You can have guests. You can have interesting people to work with but you still have your little family core to work with also that you could rely on and that that was the most fun one of the things your show. The carol burnett show is famous for. Was your your movie parodies. You said earlier that when you were a kid you'd go to maybe eight movies a week with with your grandmother. Are there moves from your childhood that you ended up. Doing parodies of on the carol burnett show. Oh yes mildred pierce joan crawford. The postman always rings twice. Lana turner gilda rita hayworth. Gone with the wind. Vivian lee even something as remote as a movie called born to be bad with joan fontaine and we called it raised to be rotten and so i mean even even and oh we did. We did A double life of noah's a stolen life. Bette davis where. I played where she played a good twin. And an evil twin. There were just so. I i would just go to the writers and i'd say kim to mildred pierce and they would get the film enron it and sure enough. I mean it was just great in about three or four weeks. We would have the sketch. Is it fun to do the kind of glamour roles that you figure you're probably not going to get because you're a comedic actress and you don't think of yourself as the glamorous type so is a fun to do those glamour roles but to do like the comic version of them. Oh absolutely i mean. I remember bob macky putting me in all white and i had a white wig. Practically lana turner in postman. Always rings twice always wore white and oh i had the eyelashes on and the you know the the white shoes in the white slim skirt and a blouse in the thing you know and White earrings and coming down the stairs because her first entrance in policeman is just showing.

"You really think you're going to change that. So you can decide to be the person waiting around to be the person change it how do I how do I get him? Development of how do we get them to overcome this problem? And you have to decide. Is that really an upside that you WANNA play? What if you accepted? You're never going to be a VP in this company. What would that then free you because it starts with Ono and then you get over the Oh no you get through the Oh no okay and now it's just oh Oh Chicago no two. Oh Oh oh says well how could I make my life more interesting here? How can make more money? What do I want more interest? Do I want more influenced to? I want more income. What what am I after? So if I wanted to make more money here will the sales guys have this unlimited upset with bonus. I should go out into the field you know if I would have more influence. Well that's the project. Were this really important qualitatively around here not have very strong influential voice but I'll never be VP. If I just you know a really what is a level? I probably have to do it. At another more interest on wikipedia lateral could become the internal consultant. There are a lot of ways that can go. Then I'm now able to. The trade off. Decision is that alternate available reality attractive enough to accept the compromise and not becoming a VP. And if it's not I gotTA GET OUTTA. Here we have. That's unstuck the yeah. There's a thing in the book about the best. Theoretical option versus the best doable option. And most people are stuck on the theoretical. You know it's not fair that I can't have what I want. I should be able to have what I want because theoretically right it should just be merit based well the world. Isn't that way in. The best doable option might be right. Go lateral go sideways. Influence a project start a special project fairness thing the fairness thing it's so human. We just want things to be fair. It's not fair. It's not right well but it's more than just it's not fair to suck it up. It's in the human condition. There's lots of variables. There's lots of reasons why things are the way they are any most companies. It's not corrupter weird or you know bad. It's just is so once you understand how power and influence value is exchanged in organizations. You can go. This is pretty obvious is pretty simple. you know. There's there's an old joke the politics at the university where I now universities where I now work. The politics of university are so intense because the stakes are so low. You win nothing your actions. You don't get a promotion. You don't get a raise. It's all done on publications and doesn't matter best you get is a better office next to the copier so once you realized that that these you're not victims of these things you can see through them. They've caused it x Ray Vision when you when you understand politics you understand organizations really work and most of its just human. It's not bad. Well you know if you peel back all of this and you speak to the acceptance speech the dust steps zero. I'm realizing I listened to you. Talk that you're starting with a very basic human assumption. That maybe we shouldn't start with. Which is that every human feels that they are worthy of work that is fulfilling to them that they find whatever they consider valuable from. Do you just assume that everybody feels that or they were going to be available. I'm GonNa Fail Ability and worthiness not the same thing I mean we're all living aspirational. You know the The have we have. We created a society. In which the fullness of each of our you know Worthwhile if not divine humanity can be expressed. No we're a long way from done here so If we can make it a little bit better and that's fine but that doesn't mean we aren't worthy worthy but a a little bit. I think you're asking a little bit of a question worthy at you. Know worth something and deserving something at work. It's pretty modern idea. That work is going to be. You know your happy place in fulfil you and also feed your soul and your children the my money making my meaning making deserve to be the same thing. Yeah that's just one form of alive and by no means the only way to do it and there's lots of reasons you might want to work for money and keep the thing you do for love. Passion her for you know for for fulfillment out of the marketplace. Because you know if you if you're a an artist and you have to produce on the markets terms then you've got to produce pretty ugly art Maybe you WanNa keep your poetry your art or something as as a side hustle and maybe some day like you know I took a fifty percent pay cut to go to the university from industry but I did it because I wanted to increase my impact in the world and put on my goal was put ten thousand kids in the world that really wanted to work on climate change in heart problems. So you can trade off money for impact you can trade off money for expression but be careful that you don't accidentally you know say. I gotta get it all from the same place. I'm only covered a lot of ground. What haven't we talked about guys? If it's true you're gonNA work six or seven years. You're going to a bunch of times and there's a way to quit well and we think that people you know most often the model is just turn in your two weeks notice do nothing and then son got the back door and that's not good because that doesn't that doesn't support the people who are coming after. You doesn't keep the stuff you've been doing. You know going strong. And you've been building something that's worth continuing and it doesn't keep your network going so we got him quitting. Well we've got a thing on how to redesign your job Because a lot of people don't don't want to take the big risk of quitting and trying something brand new because you don't really. I mean you don't really know in the interview process whether what they told you the Jarvis GonNa be his what it's actually like and we have a a a a story in the book about somebody who really did get lied to and found himself in a bad situation. It's probably one of the big ideas as the you know sort of. I think you could argue. Chapter Seven is kind of the centerpiece of the book. Which is the. Don't resign redesign. I mean a lot of people use. We started with stock. A lot of people feel stuck in the seven ten people frustrated And so I don't like my choices. I feel that my choices are suck it up and take this difficult job or this boring job or this whatever dead end job or go through the incredible difficult painful process scary risky process of quitting and starting all over again. I don't like my choices and we really wanted to give people door number. Three endure number. Three is wait a minute. You know you now that you know you can't have exactly what you want. You're stuck with what you've got. No no no you have much more agency able to get exactly the Unicorn thing you had in mind but there are a lot of moves you can make. So we have these strategies We can redesign in place in a bunch of those redesign strategies require no permission from anybody but yourself to make things a little bit better in a little. Bit Better can be huge. It's a profound difference as alowing steel or spice in food. It changes everything so you can make small moves with big changes without having to get the job picture.

This week's voice memo comes from Mignon. She's an entrepreneur in Portland Oregon and a longtime listener. Men was a student in China during the SARS outbreak. Seventeen years ago she was finishing her undergraduate and thinking about Grad School. When suddenly she was thrust into a lockdown scenario for a longtime hersman. When SARS broke out I just started college in Beijing. Suddenly the campus was closed for quarantine. Some of my friends at home. I didn't have luck. I stayed for months. No classes no activities. No online entertainment like Netflix. No all my shopping like Amazon. No all I community like linked in honestly at the time. We had no idea what will happen. No one had experienced that before months later. Whistle weived justifying now. I don't even remember much about the time I do remember the day they opened the door. I run to have my hair dyed with some queasy colors. I also remember peaking ABC. Gre Test to kill the time. I know I'm a nerd. I think it helped me when I set up ago and put a plane place.

"Lincoln I'm Jessi Hempel and this is hello Monday. Our show about the changing nature of work and how that work is changing US early in my conversation with today's guests. I asked whether they thought it was enough to be chasing. Happiness is happiness a good life goal. And maybe we all know this. The short answer is not really chasing. Happiness puts us on a head-on ICK treadmill where nothing is ever enough what we are really looking for a life. That's full of full of life and full of thriving that's Bill Burnett truly rubbing more. And that's Dave Evans Bill and David Professors at Stanford and they teach a course on designing your life. It's wildly popular. I think you'll get a sense of why in today's episode bill and Dave. Don't sugar coat it to them. We are all just making it up as we go along but they're designers and they believe there are tools we can use to make it up better. We can do more than try to be happy. We can find our way to designing lives and in particular designing work lives. That are to each of us. Here's bill and Dave so you teach this class tell us about this class well designing your Levitt Stanford you know which the first inauguration which was in the spring of two thousand ten I taught at cal. Berkeley had a class called finding your vocation subtitles. You're calling calling. This is a while ago because I struggled massively as a sophomore junior in college. Like figuring out what to do with my one wild and precious life and I thought that the help that the grownups were giving us somewhere between useless and criminally negligent Which really ticked me off in Silva's and then we got invited to teach a class about that. Having been involved in early corporate culture stuff at apple and helping people find their way to meaningful and life giving life at work That was useful. And then bill gets this job at Stanford with this Executive Director of the design program. That's less horrible. Commute from where I lived in Berkeley. And they're the lunatic fringe and they're really get it in there. Human centered people are three sixty degree thinkers. And we should do this over there. And Hey bill what do you think and bill goes? Yeah let's do it And so then off. We go and we start teaching. You know when you're in college and you're young. There's a sense that you're at the beginning. So you're you're scripting out the choices that we have had of you but the book that you've written now speaks much more to me because it's about what you do when you wake up in the middle and you don't like where you are but I think it's fair to say that even if you have a job that you wanted or you're in a career path that you endeavoured to begin you occasionally wake up and discover. You can't stand your boss or the way forward is unclear or the thing you made to sell just won't sell and you feel stuck and so I expected to pick up your book and get a A list of things to unstick myself that had to do with changing the job Changing the people changing up externalities and instead your book told me that maybe the problem was me. The problem is you but that the the the place for finding solutions is really starts with yourself. The Gallup poll internationally eighty five percent of people are disengaged are highly engaged at work so a lot of people are getting up on Monday morning and going. Oh I got to go to this. Crappy job is really popular and it's really really stock when you're stuck in it's easy to sort of feel like all this stuff is happening to me. I have no agency but if you use the mindset of designer if you start with curiosity reframe the problem you radically collaborate with other people in the world you realize you got a lot more moves in your thing and wondering if we're in favor of changing externalities hopefully if some of these tools get executed. Well the externals do change agent of that changes you. And some of the changes are entirely internal and some of those internal changes. Frankly have transformed tobacco's many of the people that you're talking to that we're talking to you right now. They're on their way to work. It's Monday morning hello Monday. We published on Monday morning and We hear you guys out there and we know that you may be on a on your way to a job that you don't like and you guys are telling us that something called design which is probably not the field that most folks work in can help. What's design right well? So there's a bunch of the way I describe it describe it at the school is. There's a bunch of different ways of solving problems. Different ways of thinking and what a lot of people are trying to do is kind of engineer. Their life engineering. Thinking is I've got the I've got all the data and I've got the equations I can build this bridge I can. I can solve this problem. There is a right answer here but you know the problem with life is it's an emerging reality. So what's going to happen six months from now a year from now you know. I don't know there's no way to predict that I tell my students. You only have two choices because the future is coming so you can accept a default thing and just kind of try to react to it or is Dave said you can imagine it as a giant design problem or an Improv problem. There's always something that you can design into and so inherently optimistic way of thinking about well changes change. It's going to happen but I have some. I have some power over how change impacts me and what I take advantage of when I move into that future so thinking is an innovation methodology to invent things that have not been invented before. And we don't know what they are until we find them by using idealization in prototype. Iteration if you want whole thing in a nutshell and I'm in the car no matter stop light. Okay what are we need to do? Get curious talk to people. Try Stuff and tell your story. Now get impact that if you click in each of those. You get some some feedback. I GET CURIOUS. Talk to people tries to tell your story ten words. That's really what we mean. Well I loved that framing so much because I'm in the language that you have to describe it but that has been what I have figured out in the first forty some odd years of my life. I learn new things about herself right. May maybe if I had gotten framework when I was twenty I would have figured out a lot earlier. I don't know but I love that you ground. This the first thing that you ask people to do is to accept where they are right. Yes we call. Subzero design only works in one place. Reality this magical thinking should is in your head. The only place should exist is in your head. Most people's definition of how happy they are coming back to happiness is what is the current referendum gap between. What's going on in the real world and what I had in mind if that gap is large. How's it going poorly? If the gap is small has a going well so I guess the entire definition of my state of being is a human being on. The surface of the earth is defined by some stuff. I just made up so we don't start with that we start with reality like what's actually going on. And where can we get two from here? So we're reality based well so let's talk about change. A second. I recently was on an event without him grant and we were talking about various ways that you could be better job and and I asked d. Do you think people can change? Do you take your own advice. I don't take my own advice. Which is why your idea which is that. It's about the little incremental change can make an celebrate kind of make sense well first of all Adams a great guy we think is stuff is cool and he and he's kind of part of the design you know the the inner design Mafia. I guess there's a lot of research on how you actually make change in your life either. Getting rid of a bad habit. I want to stop smoking or doing something or something or adding a new habit. I want to eat healthier. I WanNa you know practice. Mindfulness and all of the research says it. You fail because you take too big a step and then when you can't re recognize that as direction moving in the direction of the thing you want and you say well I couldn't do it and you quit so we're just tell yourself to disempower you do it ask. It's all about you know. Pick a goal but you really really small incremental steps so we call it to set the bar low method but just at the Barlow and clear it. You'll feel a little piece of accomplishment you get a little blasted endorphins in your brain. Then do it again. Then do it again. So you don't change your job by screaming and yelling at your boss and throwing your your idea on the floor and then walking out storming past the guards you take you to assess where you are. You take a couple of small steps you prototype your way into. By the way a lot of times people want stuff and when they get it they find out. I wasn't what I thought it would be. Yeah 'cause you 'cause nobody nobody tried it first. So prototyping is just a way of sneaking up in the future and seeing if it's really gonna be what you think it is and when you adopt these mindset's like for. Sasha with curiosity because I don't know what the future is going to be. So what am I trying to analyze?.

I know, no. And he talked me into it. I said, okay, I'll I'll try it for like three weeks because I was that wasn't Lee. And so I remember the first time I went out, I was terrified. Oh, and he said, we'll put some plants in the audience. And I said, no, I don't. That won't be right. So I was afraid nobody would ask a question or I was afraid somebody would, and I have a good Asir, but in the end, it probably cemented your bond with the audience. Did. And after about an what? Once we were aired we were on the air and the folks at home saw it. So the folks who came to see the taping, they were ready? Yes, yes. Ask questions, you know, just the end so it became it was all ad lib. There was nothing ever by never knew, and some of the most fun things we ever had on the show came out of Cuna. Yeah, you know. And yeah, and it was a good pad because if the show was short, yes, we would show all fifty minutes of Cuna or if it was long, it would just be high. Don't go away. We'll be right back. Well, another thing that was a staple of the show always, I think at the end you did your airtime what brought that about? Well, that was when I got my first job on television in New York. It was a Paul wind, chill kiddy, TV show. So I call my grandmother and I said, nanny. I'm going to be on television Saturday. And she said, well, say Hello to me. I said, I don't think they're gonna let me say Hillary nanny. So we worked out that I would pull my left ear and it meant. Yeah, that's great. Carol Burnett show was on the air during Watergate the Vietnam war assassinations, all kinds of civil unrest, but you wouldn't ever know that from watching it. And I wondered if it was a conscious decision to avoid dealing with topical political stuff. It wasn't like we avoided it. It just wasn't our thing. Right. You know, as I've said, I'm a clown. You know, I love the whole idea of belly, laughs rate, and later on we got a little serious with some of the family sketches which I love, which. Was like, and I think that's kind of why today we're going on fifty one years. Yes, I'm getting fam- from ten year olds who have watched the DVD's been put out, see me on you to and on me TV, and they hold up. It's timeless because it's timeless because it wasn't timely. Right, right. Interesting. So what were your favorite sketches was Eunice up there? I loved you. I I loved loved you. Eunice. It was really an, I don't know of any other variety show that ever did that kind of thing. It was serious, but the way we played it, I hope it was funny, absolute and people this, oh my God, like some people didn't like it at all because it may be too close to home. You know, because it was it was the poster child for a dysfunctional family. In the first time I read it. I thought this is really pretty good writing their jokes, right? No jokes, it's all character. So when I Vicki RV and I were reading it the first Monday morning, we would just read it at the script at my office. We didn't have a big table read like they do today with the crew, and everybody was just is right. And I started with his accent right talking like they like in this and because that's my Texas background. Right? Right. An Arkansas for my grandmother and Vicky picked up on it and Harvey.
