And if you if you lock up your guns if you Child safety lock. Then your insurance would be lower and senator mark and i have worked on years berg for funding gun violence research. It used to be that it was against the law to even studying gun violence. That how crazy is that every time. There's an accident we by law study. How did it happen. Could we make the car safer. That's where the seat belts came from. And the and the air bags and all the other safety measures that have helped save lives in cars. We could do the same. With god's our bill was finally included in a larger measure that passed last year and we got funding for the first time in years for safety research. And we have a bill to continue funding. It's something that should be studied and should be part of the normal process of a going forward in our country. I particularly like smart gun technology. It exists let's require it. Let's get it out there. Let's make it happen. We have technology that a gun would only respond to the owners hands. How many accidents do we have. Because young people pick up their parents guns and shoot them and kill other children. That's what sandy hook was. The young man took his mother discount and killed young children. So smart gun. Research would have Defeated that purpose. It would have prevented him from accessing his mother's gun. We should definitely a pass that and then of course we originally passed. It's not one of my bills but one of the that i'm supporting a banning assault weapon for hunting and not used to kill animals. It just use to mass murder people. We stopped him. We passed a bill in ninety four and it sunsetted after ten years but it worked it really reduced the crime and reduced gun violence his magazines. That are so rapid speed that they can kill a hundred people in a minute. They should be outlawed to it. It's just crazy that we don't outlaw.

Merrick Garland Confirmation Hearing For AG
"But today is all about Merrick Garland. He'll appear before the Senate to take questions from lawmakers for the position of attorney general. Most people know Merrick Garland's name because of something that didn't happen. Garland never got a hearing after President Obama nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court five years ago. Here's NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Merrick Garland has devoted nearly 45 years to the law. But he didn't start out that way is, he told Professor Martha Minnow at Harvard Law School in 2016. Why don't you go to law school in the first place? Chemistry, well chemistry and math. Garland had planned to become a doctor. He wanted to help people one on one, but his collision with the hard sciences spun him toward the law, where he's looked for that sort of direct connection ever since. In the mid 19 eighties. At his law firm in Washington, Garland became a rising star. He made time for a young college graduate who worked in the copy center to Randy Thompson says Garland reviewed one of his papers, photocopied it and rearrange the paragraphs. That was the beginning of In essence and becoming a riding coach. For me, it was just extraordinary experience and became my coach. Eventually, my mentor and 30 something years later, a friend. Eventually Garland Road, MMA reference for law school and has kept in touch ever since, Thompson says garlands Still a little old school still humble, still looking to help. The only thing that really has changed about him, And I guess me as well is the color of hair. I don't know, well respected judge as attorney general. Help get the department under the quagmire of partisan politics that many people think it devolved to under President Trump and Attorney General Bar That's Georgetown law professor Paul Butler. He says the DOJ has been reeling from political scandals and racing to confront the threat from homegrown extremists. Merrick Garland has faced both before. After clerking on the Supreme Court. Garland took a job as an advisor in President Jimmy Carter's Justice Department. In those years after Watergate, DOJ struggled to separate partisan influence from law enforcement and establish new boundaries for the FBI. Garland also played a bit part in some of the biggest investigations of that era from political corruption to national security that Garland says later turned into hit movies. American Hustle about the Abscam case. Argo about the ex filtration of hostages in Iran and the most important the miracle on ice. Which was about the Lake Placid Olympics, where I did work on the security for the Olympics By the 19 nineties, Garland was prosecuting a violent gang that terrorized people in a public housing project. And helping build a case against DC's mayor Marion Barry. On drug charges Back inside Justice Department headquarters, Garland became the man to see for the hardest problems. The car bomb exploded outside of a large federal building in downtown Oklahoma City, Garland would soon travel to the site of the most deadly domestic terror plot in American history. 168 people died in that bombing in Oklahoma. Former deputy Attorney General Jamie Go Relic remembers watching that day with Garland by her side, he basically said while watching Children being pulled out of the wreckage. That he had to go. He really wanted to go. We both had young Children at the time and What we saw on those screens was so affecting. Garland oversaw the search warrants protected the chain of evidence and insisted that reporters have access to court proceedings. We wanted somebody Who could make sure that the investigation was done by the book. And that any indictment was bulletproof. Prosecutors later convicted Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their role in that bombing. Former prosecutor Beth Wilkinson says Garland played an important role in other confrontations with extremists in those years, including a standoff with the heavily armed Montana free Men. One of the examples I can think of is sometimes and there were these stand downs where there would be, you know, arrest warrants for someone, or there would be some kind of controversy between people who were challenging the federal government. America's first instinct wasn't to go in and arrest everyone. It was to try and along with the FBI to see if there's a dispute could be resolved. Wilkinson says. The FBI went on to arrest those men later. She credited garlands, quick thinking and cool head that may have prevented a tragic outcome. Just about the only criticism Garland's nomination has drawn is in the area of civil rights. Garland is a moderate, so I don't see him as the bold and visionary leader or racial justice that some people were hoping for again. Georgetown law professor Paul Butler that he's not an ideologue is both discerning for people who want an attorney general. To meet this moment of national reckoning inspired by the movement for Black lives and the killing of George Floyd Butler says he thinks girls just from the White House long time civil rights advocate Wade Henderson says Garland is up to the task. But Henderson says it's a big one. The next attorney general, for example, has to do everything In his or her power to fight for voting rights. Police reform Criminal justice reform and LGBT Q equality. For the past 23 years, Garland has been a federal appeals court judge in that role, he doesn't have much of a chance to share his personal views. Carolyn Lerner, the chief mediator at the courthouse, says Garland took an early, an important lead to update policies that protect workers from sexual harassment and other misconduct. I think it's very clear that Judge Garland cares a lot about these issues, and he really wants employees to be happy and comfortable in the workplace, and when he was chief judge, he took his responsibility. To these employees very seriously, she says. Garland wants to continue another of his projects at the Justice Department tutoring sessions with a young public school student. This year. The judge is working with an 11 year old boy and his twin sister. Your mom is Andrea Tucker. He makes this so interactive for them and so much fun and they can't get enough of it. It's the kind of public service that Garland has always wanted to
The hidden history found in your teeth
"And why don't you to think about the image that you see when i say. One word migrant pictured a crowded boat in rough waters people clinging to the top of a freight train or crossing desert wearing worn out shoes. This is what we see in the news cycle. Twenty four hours day after day story after story people who are desperate fleeing wars climate change fleeing poverty but in reality most people move from common reasons to get a good education to find a job to find members or to fall in love. And this is nothing. New archaeologists like me have been studying migration and finding that people for hundreds even thousands of years have been moving around the globe from europe's earliest farmers to vikings to pirates roman gladiators and even the nfl caveman and people like you and me. Mobility is one of the things that makes us human people move and we know this because of something that you brought with you here tonight you carry it with the many places to work to the gym to bed and even in the shower. It's not your cell phone and it's not any person your pockets it's you it's your body and your bones all two hundred and six them. I brought mine because your bones will tell the story of your life even a single two and we know that teeth. Tell us many things for your dentist. For example he or she can see if you floss or if like me really like candy and you might end up with some cavities. And if my dentist is here tonight will see you monday. And i've been very good but your teeth also tell you something about migration you take your tongue and run it along. Incisors these front teeth. The back of those will be flat. If you have european or african ancestry if you feel sort of scoop or shovel shape your ancestors may have been native american or migrated from asia. If we go inside the tooth so the pulp cavity we may be able to extract the dna. And see if your ancestors came from egypt or england or both but we're not interested as much in your family's migration history as yours and we're that's where we go to the tooth enamel what it's made out of to try and find out if a person moved and even when they moved and it's based on one simple idea that you are which eats all the minerals and elements in the food like calcium oxygen. Which is the h two sodium in. Salt can tell us something about your diet. So we know if you or white bread if you prefer pork chicken or if you really like seafood there other elements that. Tell us where that food came from. And that includes sulfur strontium oxygen and even lead. Which of course you don't want very much of but these tell us where the food comes from and that can tell us where you were when you you're eating and that is what archeologists us to identify ancient migration if we look inside the tooth enamel conc- for example in your first molar. This is the one that was forming along with your baby teeth. But it's only when you still have and that tells us where you were living as an infant if we look at wisdom tooth which is the last tooth the form. That enamel would have been mineralized before you hit your teenage years. So we know where you're living then if we look at your bones and in that pause you just formed new bone cells. That's telling us what you're eating and what you're doing just about the past decade of life so we can really track where people moved and we've looked at this for hundreds and thousands of individuals to identify migration in the past. So i'd like to introduce you to some ancient migrants. If we go back in time sixteen hundred years we can go to the city of coupon where the people lived in. What's honduras if we came around the year four hundred ad who might have walked into broad plazas under really hot tropical sun was shining onto bright red painted buildings altars and carved statues in front of them. If we'd come on the right day we might have seen. The inauguration of ruler can initiate kook mall roughly translated that means son faced first mccaw. The maya rulers had really great names bird jaguar. Dark lady great but what was really neat about yash. Kusumo is that he established a dynasty that lasted for more than four hundred years. And every depiction we have him. Show him in foreign clothing. This is what people weren't central mexico which was not in the maya region and actually hundreds of miles away so for a long time. Archaeologists thought that this was a foreign king but his teeth told a different story by sampling. His first smaller has wisdom tooth and bone. We found that he in fact probably came from somewhere in the maya region so he wasn't migrant but he made lived in multiple places before coming to colpon even though he dressed like he was a foreigner

Wildfire-Ravaged Washington State Farming Town In Limbo As It Awaits Aid To Rebuild
"Almost three months ago, A wildfire destroyed most of a farming town in Washington state mold in Washington is still waiting for the Trump Administration to respond to the States Disaster declaration request. NPR's Kirk Siegler reports that many of the town's mostly lower income residents have had to rely on donations while they wait when historic wildfires overwhelmed the West Coast. In September, the governors of California, Oregon and Washington followed Standard protocol and asked President Trump to declare a major disaster. That frees up millions in federal aid for everything from temporary housing the cleanup to rebuilding infrastructure after some politicking and tweeting these air blue states after all, California and Oregon's major disaster declarations were mostly quickly approved organ heard nine days after their fire, and their fire was on the same day as ours. September 7 2020 Scott Hawkinson says it's been 71 days since Washington asked the president for its disaster declaration. On Labor Day, A wind driven range fire destroyed approximately 80% of homes in mold in Washington, including Hope Henson's, He's on the Town council and is trying to lead its recovery task force. The fires were worse overall in California and Oregon. Thankfully, nobody died in Maldon. But most of it's some 300 residents were uninsured and already living on the economic margins. But to see this on the news reports that you know the FEMA trailers are rolling in to help some people. We're in exactly the same condition. It just makes you wonder. Even in the best of times where we at did we get for gotten so fire survivors are left only to speculate. Is this politics bureaucracy just incompetence. In a brief email of FEMA spokesperson told NPR only that the administration is still reviewing Washington's request. Waiting this long and not even getting denied. Aid is extremely unusual. Yeah, I've never heard of this happening before Carolyn Kousky runs the Warden Risk center at the University of Pennsylvania. Delays create a lot of extra costs for families for the community. And the longer it takes, the more those cost can ripple and create problems, problems like delays and getting people into basic temporary housing or just cleaning up the town. And the longer Molden is in limbo, Kousky says. The harder it gets to try to rebuild smarter and more resilient against the next seemingly inevitable wildfire. This is what Scott Hokanson, the town councilman, has been trying to push even with so many people, including himself in crisis right now were hampered and how much we can move forward in which direction we could go until we hear from Dina Hawkinson says. The mayor recently resigned. So did the city clerk and there are real worries. Maldon won't rebuild and may empty out. He's trying to stay upbeat night chuckle because it's gotten to the point where it's not funny that way. It's just you have to laugh or else you'll cry. Kirk Siegler NPR

"carolyn" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics
"And how those helped drive the policy and legislative priorities that you would focus on in? Congress. So a real pivotal moment in the life of my family was was the hat businesses we refer to it My father was a professor of education So he taught teachers how to teach and was really passionately committed to education but there was this period where he burned out and he decided to leave his tenure job at Hollins College and go into business for himself selling these beautiful silk screened paper animal hats, and my mother was an artist also a teacher but. Artists and she designed them and he just fell in love with undecided. He just needed to do something different. He wanted to bring joy into the world, and so we we spent we do fifty four craft shows a year and every weekend the vans would roll out from our driveway and I would stand out on the streets and I would hawk these paper animal heads. And it was sort of this really quirky thing and I was getting ready to go to college and lot of young folks. I. wrote a sample essay. for a college application in mind was how you sell paper animal hat in the rain. And everybody thought Oh this is really creative and funny and young people from my community. Never really thought about going out of the south or out of state to school someone had handed me an application to Yale University and I was a good student but not really not really part of my world view. I was like Okay Oh heck. I'll give it a try. So I filled out that application I slapped on that essay, which was about five pages over the limit and I sent it in and I got in. And it was this wonderful thing for my family and my community here was this local girl made good and I really do while there. I was a good student I worked very hard in school. To get into schools like the Ivy Leagues will often take some kind of creative twist right to get you and I always attributed my acceptance to the hat story. So you never know where things like you know hat business is GonNa take you. So I went to Yale, it was wonderful. Got To meet amazing people. But while I was there, we hit the recession of the early nineties in the hat business went under and my family lost everything including our house and there was obviously some question about whether I'd be able to continue at this wonderful institution up. But I went on a pell grant and Perkins loans and Stafford loans and people in the community chipped in to help me make it. Of course, worked very long hours and I made it through and when I graduated. The student loan officer sat me down and said young lady you have a tremendous amount of DAX you need to get a job right away. So I definitely have a special place in my heart for young people who struggle with student debt as they're trying to make their way in the world But my father sat me down and said Carolyn I don't want you to ever forget that this country invested in you gave you this world class education and with that comes responsibility to give it back to your community. And that's really form. So you have these pivotal these conversations in life turning points these sort of jewels strung together across the course of your life, and that was one of these real turning points whereas like, okay you know that's what my life is about I'm about public service and so I. Ended up going into public service and Of course, my parents were teachers as well, and so just have really had this family with very deep commitment to public service, social? Justice. To reform, trying to you know work within your community to strengthen it and make it better. I am a mother of course of eight year old and You know deeply concerned about his future as I think, many of us are right now what are we leaving for our children? What kind of democracy are we gonNA address climate change? Are we gonNA dress some of the very important conversations that need to be had in our community got racial justice as well You know you talked about your life of public service and we're of course glad that you made that decision when I was preparing for this interview was looking at a recent add of yours I think it was which said I, won't give up I won't back down and if I had a mantra all that would be for me too. But in that context, you also have the chances a professor, of course. to teach a lot of students about not only being courageous and strong but about how to be successful in the public sphere, and of course here we're particularly interested in women leaders wondering whether you could share with us if the case what you stress to your women, students versus your male students what you find, they wanna hear him learn from you as they think about their own careers public service. So I teach the same thing to everyone but I, I am sure that my women students take away different messages from it and I share a lot of the stories of my experience. In, public service and as well as my research I am have written a lot about a. Sort of different situations in public sphere actually wrote my dissertation about the the public debate over citing landfills and incinerators in these ferocious battles happen over those issues. And certainly, one thing I point out to everybody is the real importance of persistence over time when you are advocating for change and that what we think of today is often inevitable I was not inevitable and I'm sure you know that as well having looked at policy and politics yourself in in the public space it really. Takes a tremendous amount of work. To to make change. Every once in a while it happens sort of magically. But for the most part, it takes decades of persistent work and talk about that. In these battles over you know people who decided to fight a the site site for landfill. I talk about it in my own work on the budget. As. Well, as you know bigger picture things like the civil rights movement and just the the the work in sacrifice, it takes to get things done. On the other thing, very important in my life reflecting a lot of my father recently but he really believed deeply and moral courage and that if you saw something wrong in your community saw something that needed to be changed that you really do have an obligation to address it to see if you're in that position in your life to do it it is you are called therefore to go fix it and I feel like this race to some degree I was in this unusual position, my life where I had to space to run for office. My son was in a good spot. My husband's in a good spot financially were relatively stable were able to do it at this time and given that it was a responsibility to step up. On behalf of my community in the country to do this race. So that's also very important to me and something I talk about a lot with my students and we talk a lot about courage and. You know what it takes to make change in this election cycle, you have been endorsed by President Obama, Vice President Biden Stacey.

They're probably imagining the money they can get for those pictures. In the clip it looks like John is going to plow them down if he wants to get away. Finally there's an opening and he hits the gas. And they're safe. For now John figures the press will get bored, but he's wrong. They follow Caroline everywhere for months they get in her face and cholera horror and a bitch just to see if they can provoke her God fuck the Bob Razzi seriously by the time their marriage is one year old Carolyn barely ever leaves their apartment. As. Time goes by John is less sympathetic. He misses the old Carolyn she used to be the life of the party. Now all she does is sit inside all day playing with their pets. After another evening of not much to say he tells her. I just can't come home and talk about the cat and the dog all evening. But Caroline can't seem to pull out of it I mean of course she can't press won't let her move yeah. John. Tries to cheer up and suggest other activities. Maybe she come back to the magazine and help out again that was fun right? But things that George have changed to before they got married. If felt like they shared a passionate hobby these days, it doesn't seem like a hobby for John. It's all consuming sales are in free fall and advertisers are running away. He's desperately trying to come up with a plan to turn things around, and now caroline is one growing resentful. Both of them are under extreme stress and rather than leaning on each other to pull through the hard times. It's like the bad times are pushing them further apart. In the spring of Nineteen. Ninety, eight John Finally Lures Caroline out of the House for a benefit dinner where she bumps into an old friend. Actually an old flame. His name is Michael Bergen. He's a former male model who caroline met during her days at Calvin Klein. He has thick dark hair even thicker eyebrows and a perfectly chiseled jaw line on his dimpled face talking to Michael Makes Caroline. Suddenly feel like hurled self. He knew her before she became a Kennedy and reminds her of who she used to be before the press decided she was a total bitch. Michael likes being around her to and at the end of the night they agree to meet again soon for coffee. That coffee date leads to another and then another and another. Wait. Don't the paps get suspicious I mean I'm picturing them wearing wigs and ducking into alleyways and changing cab. Be Cool if she dressed up like a garbage man in hitch rides garbage trucks. Yeah. But who wants to have an emotional fair with someone who smells like garbage true although maybe she smelled like rich people garbage Yeah. Like empty bottles of Chanel number five and old caviar I might date that honestly maybe I would do. However it went down for the first time in a while caroline is starting to feel like she has someone she can confide in about the pressures of being a Kennedy probably doesn't hurt that he's hot. Yeah. Fun fact he was the face actually he was the Crotch of Kelvin's tighty whiteys after Mark Wahlberg. Anyway that Spring John Takes a trip out of town and Caroline and Michael decided to turn their coffee date into dinner. Afterward. They go back to Michael's apartment caroline opens up. She tells my goal that either working on the magazine or learning to fly his new plane. She's lucky if she even sees him these days, she starts crying and Michael starts comforting her and before she knows what's happening there kissing. Caroline jumps up and says no God what am I doing? And she runs out. She calls Michael The next day and tells them. It can never happen again and then she's like I think you should know I told John about it. Is this the right time for a Don Don Don I learned the hard way. There's never a right time for that. Okay well I tried. Two days later, Michael is woken from a deep sleep. He stumbles out of bed and goes to the inner calm. WHO's there he says. The person on the other end says he's a cop. So Michael Buzzes up. He opens his door and it's John before he can do anything John Dixon. How right in the Kisser? Michael goes down hard and then John says stay away from my damn wife while. But some Michael dozen stay away. A few weeks later, he gets a call from caroline and before long he's right back where he was meeting up with her listening to our secrets and happily giving her a little normalcy in her not. So Normal Life Aman one thing leads to another as they say and pretty soon, they're buttering each other's biscuits. Actually no one really knows about the biscuits and butter some books say they were getting it on other say it was just an emotional affair whatever's happening it goes on for nearly a year and John has no idea probably because he's not around while apparently, he's not totally clueless because one night in March nineteen, ninety, nine caroline says she's got to take care of something and John Follows. Her. Turns out she's not running an errand she's going to see Michael. John sits down on the curb outside Michael's apartment and waits for two hours while when caroline finally comes out, he grabs her by the arm and practically throws her into a cab. According to the book the Kennedy ears when the to get home caroline swears to John. She's not sleeping with Michael. She says, he's just a friend someone. She can be honest with away that she can't with John Because. He's always so preoccupied you think John would be relieved knowing that Caroline's not sleeping with someone else but actually it's the opposite. He feels like he could get over it if it was just sex but this is worse she turned to someone else for emotional support when she should be turning to him. John feels like it's a violation of the trust of their marriage is supposed to be built on. But the more he thinks about it the more he realizes why she felt the need to turn to someone else between his obsession with working desire to succeed and trips to see his family and his plane. He hasn't exactly been available if he had been there maybe so would carol it. Now, with John Tells Caroline ready to make a change, he wants to give their marriage a second shot. Is She willing? And she is if they go to couples counseling. And he agrees. For a few months, they give counseling the old college try but it doesn't work. In July caroline walks out of a session and refuses to go back. then. She moves out of their bedroom and into the spare room where John keeps his workout equipment. Then in a rash quid pro quo maneuver John Moves out of their apartment and into the Stanhope Hotel. Well he doesn't really move. He hobbles because this point his put his guest, oh. Yeah. I feel as coming full circle back to the start of episode.

Interview With Candace Queen
"I'm talking with candace Queen, a multidisciplinary designer and the creator of Tabernacle Studio in Beaumont Texas. Let's start the show. Right. So tell us who you are what you do. Hi, my name's candace Queen and I'm a multidisciplinary visual creative, Amran, a creative studio in Beaumont Texas called. Tabernacle. And I've worked to use design and creativity to build equity and black communities in under service communities as well. Now, one thing I've been asking everyone over the past few months as I've been recording the show is. How are you holding up during this pandemic? I'm actually really thriving initially, I would say, I was very afraid, just personal level. I have several health issues and so knowing how all the different things that were coming about with Covid, and then of course, on the business side, I, initially focused on events when I started my studio and so having all the Vance Gate canceled. It really just put me in a a minor state of panic state of panic. Myself, and once I got over that Hump in really started like absorbing all itchy last conversations with influencers in an people, I really respected and admired. It really served as a source of motivation, and then going from there started to strategize how would I come out on the other side of this a whole lot stronger in. So I'm really comfortable and proud of the pivot that I'm making right now. I'm really thankful for the extra time. I've been able to spend with my family whether. You know zoom cost because right now, the only person could actually see me a person as my sister. It's taken a turn that I didn't know unneeded. It's. Helped me in a long run? That's really good. That's good to hear that you've been kind of thriving during the time I know that I think a lot of people were really kind of panicked at first because we didn't know. How? Serious this was going to be you know things were getting locked down and different states have different levels of kind of government, some sort of government. Mandate about whether. You should stay shelter in place or anything like that. But I can see especially like for entrepreneurs, and like you said, you were initially focusing on events like kind of that. The best time of the events during a time where we're not supposed to be getting together. So it's good that you are able to make that pivot. Yeah. In Texas. So it is definitely a challenge because we tended, we tend to be the more lax in terms of addressing everything in neuro. It's starting to catch up with US holistically, but thankfully. Hermit creative lands alive is virtual. So that's been a big help and I'm also thankful that actually made a move to a small town before all this happened because it's actually made it a bit easier to navigate to think in Chicago before I. Think I've been stuck in Chicago Far Away from my family by myself, it would have been a whole nother story. Yeah I'm in Georgia right now, and certainly I, know about the lax treatment I, think we had maybe about maybe three three and a half weeks of shelter in place in like now, they've lay reopened things at the end of April and now, of course, cases of already kind of steadily been going up but. Yeah I. Know What you mean with that. What made you decide to strike out on your own and start Tabernacle. So, when I initially came to the AD industry wasn't magma plan, it wasn't. You know something strategically it out to do I became interested in designing and just exploring creativity like way back in my space aids and I grew up in oil and gas town. So that was the expectation was egos engineering medicine legal or maybe a teacher, but never you know was encouraged to pursue anything creative indefinitely, not advertising. I also grew up in a very conservative tenneco hostile household. So we actually didn't have a TV. See commercials unless I was like at a family member's house celebrity didn't know anything about advertising. But once I got to college I realize medical elective in advertising and I realized I really want to pursue that and as I begin studied I, didn't see many black people and our curriculums, and so I started to research a lot Abou-. You know historical black figures advertising one person who really inspired. Inspired, me was Carolyn Jones and she started several agencies on her own in from there Mago became GonNa, get an advertising, get jobs agency, learn the ropes, and then create my own,
Election Officials Declare Winners in Two New York Democratic Primaries After Federal Judge Finds Voters Disenfranchised
"Of Election certified the results of the June 23rd primary earlier today. It comes one day after a federal judge issued an order directing board of elections across the state. To re examine their absentee ballot totals to consider votes tossed out for missing a postmark as long as they were received by June 25th. It's just the latest twist in New York's pandemic primary, which saw a tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots, compared to 2016. Joining us now W. N Y City Hall and politics reporter Bridget Bergen Ridge it let's start with what happened today. The Board of Election certified the results of a primary that took place six weeks ago. That means they finished counting. But why did it take so long? Jamie, You said it right there that we saw that tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots. People really were taking advantage of this expanded absentee ballot system that Governor Cuomo Did through executive order because of the pandemic, and then the counting process associated with it was very methodical. You know. Absentee ballots can be rejected for a lot of reasons. Missing signatures were among the biggest issues, but Another issue. We first reported here at WNYC and Gothamist was related to ballots invalidated for missing postmarks. Two candidates and 14 voters sued the state Board of Elections and Governor Cuomo, arguing that voters were being disenfranchised through no fault of their own due to missing postmarks. Absentee ballots needed to be postmarked by June 23rd and arrive at the board of Elections by June 30th to count and there was a big decision in that case late last night. Give us a quick overview of that lawsuit. Last week, there was a two day evidentiary hearing where witnesses testified about how the Board of elections handled this flood of absentee ballots and how the United States Post office process them. Some of what we learned was pretty shocking. Like the fact that the Board of elections dropped off more than 34,000 ballots to the post office to mail to voters the day before the primary. That meant voters would need to get that ballot in the mail on June 23rd rushed to a post office box before five if they had any chance of mailing it with a postmark. To make it eligible. And beyond that, there was evidence introduced that showed that more ballots in Brooklyn were invalidated for missing postmarks than in any other borough. Wow. Then tell us more about the ruling issued last night. So Judge Annalisa Torahs presided over this case in the southern district. She found the plaintiff's arguments more persuasive that ballots were in fact treated differently in different parts of the city. She ordered the New York State Board of Elections to direct all local boards to count otherwise valid absentee ballots, missing postmarks as long as they were received by June 25th 2 days after the primary. She also criticized the state's argument that it didn't intentionally disenfranchise voters where they basically pointed to failures by the post office and tried to place the blame on them. She wrote quote. The Constitution is not so toothless. When voters have been provided with absentee ballots image assured that their votes on those ballots will be counted. The state cannot ignore a later discovered a systemic problem that arbitrarily renders those ballots invalid. What does it mean Bridget that the city Board of Election certified the election results? Isn't that a violation of the judge's order? Well. The city also directed its staff in each borough to prepare to count the ballots that qualify under the judge's order. And they said, they're just awaiting direction from the state Board of elections to go ahead and do that. Okay, so assuming the order stands, could it change the outcome of any Racists? You know, is one of the plaintiffs lawyers, Remmy Green said at a press conference this morning. We don't know what we don't know yet certainly one of the plaintiffs Raj Patel, who is a candidate in New York's 12th Congressional District, which covers parts of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. He's hopeful that this will help because he's currently trailing Carolyn Maloney abi about 3700 votes, but at this point, it's not really clear there are enough votes to change that race. However, there could be other races and other parts of the state that we don't know about. And one of the plaintiff interveners in this case, Maria Coffer who ran for District leader AA position in Queens. She only lost two City council member Karen Causal. It's by about 100 boats, so we'll see if there's anything that changes their 100 votes. Wow. What was the reaction from the State Board of Elections have they signaled any plans to appeal? So I have yet to hear from anyone from the State Board of Elections or the New York Attorney general's office who is representing the state. In this matter. I will note that one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs basically warned the state and governor Cuomo against appealing. Here's attorney, Ali Nagy. Me. Governor Cuomo. Your legacy is on the line. If you will peel this, you'll lose in the appeal, and you will be another second round suppressor votes, and that is not what the governor needs. Now, if the state did appeal, obviously, that matter would go before the Court of Appeals, and it's worth noting. Earlier this summer, this same judge Analisa Torres ruled against the state Board of elections. In another election law case, she overturned their decision to cancel the Democratic presidential primary. That case went before the Court of Appeals and her ruling stands.
Carolyn Goodwin - Marketing Manager at Barn
"In a nutshell. What Is Barn? Well Barn is a is a community. It's basically it's an artisan community formed of artisans from all different disciplines who have come together and initially worked to create this space and now work to. Invite people into it to learn and make things now. You have a number of primary studios. Here I. Believe Ten. What are those. Well, we have everything from electronic and technical arts where we have three D. printers and laser cutters and laser editors and a lot of people who know what to do with them. and we also have fiber arts where we do weaving and knitting and sewing. Glass Arts where they do Stained glass and mosaics and Fused glass we've jewelry and fine metals where we do all different aspects of jewelry, making from the Lapidary or stone cutting work to the working with to gold and silver and other metals We have a kitchen arts. We have a commercial kitchen here, so we have a group of people who put on classes on on kick cooking, all different kinds of cooking from all over the world we have print and book arts where we have a professional quality, prince, making equipment, and also teach bookbinding and book arts. And we have a writers group where we can teach people both the craft, and the business of writing and then finally last, but not least we have. The the woodworking studio which is has been incredibly popular and and is just always full of people making things whether woodworking studio is what brought me here, initially It's kind of my thing, but I've been so impressed with the you guys offer is is just amazing now. How did this place come about? Well it. Ta started in about two thousand twelve where. Initially. It was a woodworker who had an idea to that he'd seen a community woodshop shop in Arizona think and thought wow, that would be a great thing to have on Bainbridge island. And you know he worked on it. And then was looking around for a existing space on the island to do that in and in the process, other people kind of started thinking well. What if we did that, but we also added a print studio, and maybe we did that and had a jewelry studio, and the more the more people that. kind of joined in the more traction that idea got and eventually. It morphed from looking for a space that existed that we could put this into to. You know if we're GONNA do this right. We just need to build the space from scratch and so. So that's where it went and it actually all kind of came in the idea gelled in a famous. Band tour there were a group of about. eight or ten people that were in a van on a trip to go look at another artists space in the area and on that trip the whole thing came together. It was kind of like well, you know. Let's just build it and they came up with the name you know. Let's call it barn and they came up with You know really the whole this I. Guess I. Unfortunately I wasn't on that trip, but apparently it was just incredibly exciting time for where where everything just kind of gelled and from there. We we went into the. The Next phase which is building the building. Yeah and I mean it's it. There's a big step between this would be really cool to actually breaking ground, and and it's just everybody I've talked to this whole. I don't know if I. DO SHOULD I call it an institute or just a this Space Barn? was seems to be such a Labor of love. You know everybody's passionate about what they're doing. It met a lot of the other instructors or the studios yet, and but it's all. It looks like you're doing it right well, it. It's It's brought together just an incredible group of people from the very beginning, it was the initial group. We started in a little, tiny, twenty, five hundred square foot, building up on the other end of the island and. Everybody was piled on top of each other, and there was a crammed into every little nook and corner in the space, and and it was just a crazy small space, but it. It was a place where. The you know, the people started coming and the ideas started flowing, and we figured out how the whole thing was going to work and started practicing, I guess, and because from there we grew to this twenty five thousand square foot building, so you know a tenfold increase and just.

"That I'm Carolyn had because I could morning to you in the markets mass yeah in them well I mean it's not a good morning if you're long these markets they are down again today right now it's just one of a half percent basically on the a continental and equity indexes and on the **** if you're looking at the well the U. S. had a great rally yesterday the S. and P. five hundred was up more than three percent but we're looking at futures that are down about one and a half percent on S. and P. five hundred many contracts so today looks like it could be a risk off day on Wall Street as well as earnings season continues we see investors buying ten year bonds pushing the yield down to sixty eight basis points they are buying the dollar against the yen right now you can get a hundred seven point three five yen for your dollar ended green back is weaker stronger I should say against the euro and the pound as well a euro going for one oh nine thirty five pound going for one twenty five seventeen very interesting to see oil come down to the lowest level we've seen since two thousand two at least on NYMEX WTI that's the case we're seeing it drop below twenty dollars a barrel so a barrel of West Texas intermediate crude cost you nineteen dollars and forty nine cents a barrel of Brent crude cost twenty dollars and twenty four cents on the ice exchange notice such a massive drop in global oil demand okay so that's a look at the markets this morning let's also talk a bit about the U. K. because of when the full week of lockdown you research shows that the impact on jobs and growth of the structuring could be really staggering the office for budget responsibility which is the UK's fiscal watchdog basis is that the economy Hey will shrink by a third discourse assuming that the lockdown measures remain in place three months unemployment with search over two million people they got what would have the biggest budget deficit since World War two for more on this please say that which but Bowman Matix is the director of the institute for government thank you so much for joining us a thirteen percent drop in GDP this did it says the OPR does double the IMF's view how will that fight to aid in your view to the thinking about the lockdown we expecting an extension of course for another three weeks at least another three weeks it's going to be that very centrally in in the thinking I mean the thinking as with many countries has been dominated by the medical imperative of trying to get some kind of creek on the spread of the disease but the economic hit I mean these are you watering numbers people are the scrambling of themselves to talk about how bad it could be as bad as the nineteen thirties even fatter last month that some hundreds of years and because no one is how quickly the economy might come out of it again and one feature that the government has been very surprised that in the U. K. is off to a very slow start how people then I've been very expedient that was in following these regulations and say they're going to get concerned about whether I see more of the economy shut down than they expected and whether it may be slower to come out again well for the good of the job losses and then they had them they had hoped that this species this economic trade offs and this is a trade off it's really the very centrally in the thinking and the great fear is that it you know if you double the the time of the lockdown you will be moved to more than double the economic damage because some things will be lost permanently speaking of lost permanently those job losses could the government have done a better job of avoiding that or I mean you know when you're going to suddenly stop the economy don't you reach out to small and medium enterprises and say listen we're gonna pay you to keep your employees on I mean certainly that's the what the German system does yeah they don't know they said they covering eighty percent of the salaries of workers who were furloughed and that that there's been a lot of take up inside they also try to extend the program of of loans as an interest free his take to businesses DOT medical sticky so I think the steps they took absolutely right and if the scale and speed that was needed they may want to talk about where it's got sticky is in the in in business is actually being able to access those loans and is all kinds of and I I think this is going to be a big big issue in the in the next few weeks Hey look many fewer businesses than had been expected of actually been able to get those those loans the banks is saying don't make us villains are you telling us to issue loans that we you know that we wouldn't in any circumstance the government isn't offering a hundred percent guarantees on all of these and you know where the losses of all this going to say it and I think that is a big question for the government to take this big bite out of GDP those losses are going to sit somewhere in the bank telling if you make a mistake then we can put them in open up a couple that you want for us to invest in the recovery yeah so but I think that will begin at least pretty pretty soon but the the the it's called sticky on the ticket on the small business loan from yeah no thank you bye it's about taking updates that they the offer is that it is about whether you can actually get it whether the infrastructure isn't exactly right and again and again this is the criticism that the government has faced over promising under delivering on the PP font on the ventilators for on the promised full support for SMEs you know at some point the government's going to have to sort of unit faces very difficult you know growing criticisms of the not delivering well I think it is very hard with something of this scale to get the delivery date right so the first is to get the point of principle of what you're trying to do right and I think you know that way which is easier that way we're going to do X. Y. sat on personal can a protective equipment on lanes on support for workers that they expect that a lot actually getting this huge machine to get that amount of money and a kid out right across the country is much harder every government knows if you could if you were centralized government which is white some of the stuff that's been surprising that they found it so hard I found particularly surprising on the the kick to the NHS I think the the financial support has probably been getting a bit more easily but so it's it's very hard to get money out that quickly and it was that was part of the thinking the beginning of how to how to how to get money out to the benefits system and today the the banking system thank you to be very briefly Bowman on that point the you may want to think it's very difficult to get that P. P. M. factor right he says is the price you just briefly I think that probably wasn't clear decisions on the procurement of of how to get hold of how do we how to how to import it and then it is questions about how NHS England works and how it's in procurement works and how we separate that is from the government you've got to go speak to quite rigid organizations trying to move very confident very often something like digital working on and on and on doctors and all kinds of things but on the actual getting the kids that are places that the distribution question and it's just not come so fed up to do that so the roads have questions on the other hand if he's a genuinely helping today I would point out there a couple of other countries that were looking for some P. P. at the same time yeah well when everybody in the world wants something now and he hasn't been produced in a and I'm the kind of massive quantities that are necessary you gonna fight for it and you know the U. K. is a is a big country and a wealthy country but sixty million you know there are bigger countries richer with more money and also maybe not the same kind of ethical concerns yeah but down to the tarmac in some cases we've heard about how we know what thank you so much diplomatic set for joining us today to have the institute for government yeah my look I think everybody around the world even even countries that have gotten it very right in this difficult situation going to face questions yeah absolutely but I think there's a constant question why can't we get enough PP well I think the answer is pretty obvious right we all want it now all of a sudden so it's going to be difficult to get it let's get overly endurance right now for your.

"March twenty-seven avert out what a great break a wonderful bring so ladies. Yeah let's talk about being ladies. Yes I am. I think it's so exciting that we're talking to someone who is the the as we said earlier the longest serving woman on the simpsons. That's incredible I know that when Juliet I? I came out with our podcast. One of the things that set us apart as you know being an CEO. Simpson's podcast is that we are two women hosting the show who also are in the industry and I think that even though we've come so far in many ways in terms of having a more representation that they're still you know they're still they're still. Yeah we're still we're still growing and it's been an uptick but I want to hear from you. You've been working for how many years now in the in as a writer as a writer in general probably like thirty hell. Yeah Oh yeah. That's amazing. Yeah please enlighten us a little bit about your experience and kind of just you know what it's what it's like for you. I know that you can't speak for all women But your experience and then also you know I. It just feels like a natural place to go the difference between I know in acting the of course like once you hit thirty. You're just like what am I going to do? And so You know people get aged out of stuff for for on camera rules but I have a feeling that also happens. Yeah maybe even on jobs. That aren't buying. Can you speak to me of this? Yes ageism is real and I really wanted to to you know it actually affects men and women and and as far as riders go. There was actually a lawsuit a while ago. I mean I would say like even in the nineties. So now they're they're not as blatant But I do feel in particular. Women should pay particular attention to this because Women are considered over the hill at a younger age. You know like I'm the writer's room is a lot more woke now but I can remember when it wasn't I remember. Many conversations of women being referred to as pass their sell by date and that date with about thirty five for women and it was about forty from an in an agency I saw a lot of that for you know as I saw a lot more with men because especially back then there were a lot less women writers But yeah it's around around forty was getting really hard and there was a common thing to like on people's resumes like Auvinen. Oh you might have written on this groundbreaking classic television show but don't put that on your resume because it will date you and that was and I feel like there's like this okay boomer type of thing you know it's there. Is this thing with ageism. Ageism is the one. Is THAT IF WE'RE LUCKY? We will all experience and That's true if you're ages you really are just attacking your future self. That's most ages people. I know who you know. When they're young. Why why does she know she's whatever right? They have the hardest time dealing with themselves when they get older because they have all this negative shit piled up and it. Is You know diversity in the regime is always important. I think it's great to have fresh new voices. But it's also you know if you it's in everybody's interest even as a young person to set up a society where we value experience and intelligence and you know because and just sort of a An emotional maturity. And you know that's not. Just you know like buttering up and making Matt a pretty package that is the actual truth. People are better there especially in writing and I just remembered when Sarah Silverman In the James Franco Roast. She was yeah. She said she brushed off the things about her looks or her acting but most of the takes on her were how old she was and it was. It was very strange and the same thing happened with Martha Stewart. When she did the Justin Bieber rose they every thing they just hit her with was like Martha Stewart. She's so old and it's like there's she's Martha Stewart you've got a whole. There's a lot of rich areas and it just was like women worked. The only people for whom time is moving forward? Yeah and I thought Sarah Silverman said you know it really was? It felt very the attack. Felt Very Person Woman Center and that it was because she she wasn't the oldest person on the panel at that point she was forty. Two her sin was staying alive. So and also ageism is a way that people tend to often about money. So I feel like we've done a lot to help get more women in at the beginning and so there are a lot more people wanting to get their woman numbers up and so they will hire a bunch of brand new people and then but we all WanNa have our second and third jobs to and not just like. Oh we're only GONNA we're only gonNA give everybody that first chance. Pay that price right and I mean I do think that people are even willing to take less or I don't know but I also feel like the other thing about ageism is that this business is so hard to break into and I know so many people that Kinda gave up their dreams after a certain point because it's super talented people writing and performing who you know because it's like well if I don't make it by this age and it's almost impossible to break in and it. It is very difficult. I I had a friend of mine. Who was up for a job and she had it was all blind and she This was a researcher. Job For blind submission. It was all blind submission so nobody knew if you were woman or a man or and she was told like she was far above the best and she basically had the job but then somebody else remembered meeting her at A. Wj thing and they were like. Oh I think she's probably too my God. Yeah and it. It happens a lot so I just so. That's one thing everybody I feel like ageism has been a problem and the other thing I think we lose a lot of our really great superstar women and this is something. I was noticing. Even when I was working in an agency is that the job needs to be a little more family friendly. There's there's a recent thing where Eva Davar nee and and I wrote down but like they. They're trying to get the union. The W J. I've this was the DJ on though I think the WJ should take note to extend it wasn't even asking for paid. Lee Maternity Leave. They were just asking that when a woman even or maybe even a father who anybody who has a child that they get an extension in the amount of time it takes them to qualify for health care. You know there's a certain minimum and you have to make it within a year to have healthcare and if you're taking off time to have your baby and and and be with your child you know it's going to be hard for you to make that minimum and then you're gonNA lose your healthcare exactly and that was it leaves. It means my one. Other soapbox place is I do think that we we as artists should really push for health. Care as a universal right and Medicare for all because right now our our union's all unions they spend so much of their negotiating power on healthcare and it it stuff that we you know we. We could be fighting for better wages better. Working Conditions and writers. We have all these other things we're residuals and definitions of of certain things you know positions to do with writing yes actual job the fact that you're alive and ownership of your material and all these things and we can't really get them because so much is spent on this healthcare thing but also again. This is such a hard business and we need to be able to have a little bit of freedom to move from job to job which is sort of anybody who wants to have a very artistically fulfilling career in this business. It's hard to do it when for whatever reason I mean some just in life you need to have healthcare but God forbid you have a pre existing condition you have cancer you've been hit by a tra- anything and then all of a sudden I've seen that also happened where a lot of people's dreams have to die or at least it's just like that is something we can do because I have to stay at this job with this healthcare and I do think if we were to get universal health care and we can pay for it because if we shrink the military attacks the red make the pharmaceutical companies beholden to. They're not paying thirty to one hundred ninety percent more for pharmaceutical drugs than any other country. Saying we can pay for this and if we do. I think we would see like a renaissance. Oh my God and it creates him. There'd be percents but we're just talking about just just for the orange alert getting rid of the student loan debt. I know for me personally like if I suddenly owed you know. Fifty thousand dollars less for school. I didn't even get to graduate from because I wasn't able to continue to pay to keep going like I would be able to spend all of that money on like classes for something that would make me a better writer or like you know I'd be able to like just do so. I could invest in myself like that right and that is true of so many like college kids that are like going in right now into the industry that it's just like the can't afford a lot of like you know unpaid internships that type of stuff like it's really difficult to afford to be in this industry for a lot of people. So that's a huge deal. Yeah and I think that there's a lot of things at play. Because so first and foremost it's sort of American society and how we treat creatives and we of course praise them as being geniuses if they are successful and are making money. And that's how we measure success but I think For the most part we sort of label them as being frivolous and following frivolous things and I recently got to travel to Ireland and I spent some time with my friends who are writers out there and they were telling me I was shocked to discover this that The government over there is so supportive especially of writers but so supportive of artists in general that There is something where if you are declaring yourself on your taxes as a writer and you have you know you're working that the first fifty thousand pounds of your yearly income is tax free. You're pursuing your destiny in your career and I thought that was so great they of course we're like move here and I went. I've husband hold up But then you know I think secondly to go back to what you were saying earlier about like how hard it is to break in. I think that there is this belief. And there's a lot of truth behind this belief but that a career in the arts especially as a writer is very tenuous. I am making a living but I can't shake the feeling that I'm holding on by the skin of my teeth Because it is so project based and truly. Don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. As I mentioned I feel like an email could come in at any moment and change my life. And that's where I'm at right now and so I think with that in mind when you're thinking about the healthcare or lack of health care that you have I'm also a woman who is Of a an age where becoming a mother is is something that is very much breathing down my back in around the corner and I find it difficult to make those decisions in sync with my rising up in my career. I do feel like they're at odds and I feel like I'm part of an industry even though the wgn is so great. And I'm a very new member of it and I I've loved it so far..

"This lie that I had a boyfriend named Trent which is a very obvious connection from dark. And I it was around yearbook time and I just remember thinking you know Trent. He's my boyfriend's. He's go here but like he signed my yearbook in their lives. I wrote a Yearbook. I was to use my non writing. Hand is like dumb eleven for his handwriting. He was really easy on the eyes. And I have a correspondence and I remember doing that. And I forget even when you're the best Trent and showing it a couple of people and then being not impressed put now the yearbooks my mom and I'm like terrified to open the page taken over there so it's interesting because you know I would say the Tuleya an IRA generation and just specific background. Where like our dads were pretty attentive or at least you know. Prominent in our influence in. Yeah influential definitely had You know I will say at times I was a little bit more of a Latchkey Kid. Like there was definitely no one home for long periods of time that I can remember but I was always safe and stuff but I'm wondering you know you know your apparent now. I'm wondering the differences and how much kind of space you give your son and if you think based on comparing your creativity to his I guess. Do you think there's a difference between how attentive you are is? There is there formula of like if you're giving them space to do their own thing they end up being more creative or if you're really honing their craft they get better. Do you have any feelings kind of the? I know. It's a big general discussion point. But I'm just kinda curious I mean you know I mean I definitely am not of the mindset of like kids these days are your I. I feel like we've been getting better and better and it seems that way. Yeah I think so and I like seeing you know the dads that like I mean really when I was if my dad had come to like everything he would've been like really was a couple of wars his down here or like. I do think it's very good for the kids and I as far as creativity you know. It's such a crazy thing. I actually did have a whole bunch of I was GonNa talk more about creativity to on crazy stuff but with a child. I with my kid. It's like trying to catch a butterfly. Sometimes I often found sometimes I will just kill his creativity by. He'll do something I'll be like. Oh do you like that. Let me let me buy you a good and for that. I don't want it anymore so I have to. Kinda like sort of. See the corner of my like okay. That's happening. I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa Beach excited discourage staff dance. That's definitely is very very hard to get too excited about. And it's because I think my kid and his particular thing for a long time he couldn't. I couldn't watch him do stuff. I could watch but I'd have to be hidden and we knew this and then like luckily at the school because they have these they make they make the kids get up in front of other people so often and the kids are so relaxed. Now I mean when I think about what we would have like at later in the year. You'RE GONNA have to stand up and talk in front of everybody and I would have heart palpitations sharing Ati suet. But in this school you know and maybe it's just all they just make them get up and so he's fine with it but I have to hide. He's standing up going. Good evening sharks on shark tank all the time and this. This was like a thing that I don't know I just makes me laugh Going to his birthday circle and this was very young again. This is how they his he was in kindergarten and he meant he could lead the class and we got to watch a night sitting there like now everyone go around and I'm going to ask everybody what they like about guy and like everybody's like legos. Draw like everybody would say all these great things and then this one kid and Sam and he goes pass. Try Not to laugh and I knew I should have been mad but I also love that. They were like okay. That is a future entrepreneur. Founder that is a future boss and that's the thing you really realize by kids at that age pretty much. Every kid. That was that he ever had a problem with would eventually become one of his best friends. And it's almost seems cliche but it just sort of always happened and Yeah as a person who wants was a kid and also now has a kid. Do you feel like your ability to write For the Voice of Bart and Lisa has been Has influenced or been changed By becoming apparent or do you think that you've always kind of been able to tap into like well. They're you know they're Bart and Lisa. They're part of us all apart. It's all part of Saul 'cause I feel like you know it's it's always weird to me when people feel like they can't understand how to write for a woman or they can't understand how to write for a kid because it's just like well we're all human. There's something human about all of us but I'm wondering. Have you felt there been a shift in your writing from when you started not even Justice Simpson's but just has it changed through this perspective of parenthood. I definitely think so It's good I think you have both because of course you could always right for kids because everybody's been a kid there. Was this one idea that was like it was such an interesting thing and I don't know we captured the depth of it in the in the episode. But I didn't episode where homer remembers that GRANDPA had given away his dog when he was a little kid. Because I had that exact experience when I pitched it. I didn't realize how like I'm reading my pitch in front of this and then they will leash broke trying and it was like I kind of feel like it was a little bit of a cheat and the one kid was like pass got can see here out to sell it now. I WANNA break down crying but the aspect of it that I really liked was okay so this is my story. Was We had a Pomeranian? That was really loved. Her name was Fuji and we lived in this one place and never beach and they actually had a custodian who lived there like groundskeeper Willie based but it was very like that and we took the dog on the run around the school when it was closed because we lived nearby and Mr analysts was there and he loved. The dog hit reminded him of a dog that he had and he was just like a sort of older man and he was just like oh he just loves or loved her loved her and then went back to my house is them trying to make this Many mother to later he showed up at my house with all this like two hundred fifty dollars and wants to buy the dog and because he loves her so much and reminds so much of this and I was like eight years old. I didn't my thought the equivalent of fuck you fuck. You know really furious earn. I hated him. Then flash forward we we move and we live in this town. We're different school and the dog keeps running away and at one point. The dog runs away and just because we. He's in the backyard. She liked Ren and gone for like a month and then we find her up the street. We see somebody else's you are really well. That's our dog. And then there's like a troubled teen who'd gotten very attached to the dog and threatened. Our dog was like I'm GonNa kill this dog if I see it. Because he was like didn't want to give it up and so if you ever you know. I'm sure he didn't but he was saying he was in. She got out again and we're like so my parents go. We should give the dog to Mr Analysis. The Custodian and I was like no and I hated my mother and I hated. My Dad hated Mr Analysis and I cried the dog like forever even when I was starting to get over and I'd be like don't get over it. Thank you gotta hold onto this being sad about this and it wasn't until as an adult looking back. I one day real. And then I went to go visit Miss Ornelas. And he changed her name to Lonnie and she was really fat. And she didn't like us as much as she likes to have a heartbreaking and so the whole thing I was trying to show with that was that when I was an adult it was really weird. I hadn't thought about it in a long time and then often I thought back as an adult and I could see my childish emotion but I also could see like. Oh my parents actually did the right thing and actually it's really great that Mr L. Right got to have this dog. He loved it and it was. It was like this win win all around but like I couldn't see it as a kid and for the longest time. I still have this even as an adult like this anger at my parents for what they did. Yeah and so I was trying to show that moment where like homer realizes that a certain point. Oh yeah because ours is like the dog had bitten Mr Burns and we had to get rid of the dog or it was. Something's going to happen. And that you know sort of saying like most of the the tension between homer and his dad had come from this or at least some part of it and that just that moment of of looking back on a childhood memory with adult is and yeah yeah absolutely. I think that's amazing. I feel like that's such a good breakthrough to have also just because it's right even if you're not a child there are so many moments where like you're not able to have the empathy or the ability for whatever reason To get why people make the choices that they do. And it's you know it's such a good exercise able to think of it as like maybe someone was benefited by this thing. That tortured me at the time. You know. Yeah that's amazing. It's like two fold where it not only helped you and your personal understanding of how the world works in your personal understanding of being this adult perspective that then helps you relate to your parents.

I'm very excited. So let's just jump in because I'm so excited to talk to our special guest today I'll just go in. She is a writer currently on this Simpson Sam and she has been a writer on the simpsons for awhile. I believe her title over. There is longest serving simpsons writer. Sounds so patriotic. Yeah you get a pen and you have to But she's also written on many other things that we will get into please everybody welcome. Caroline Omen. Hello I welcome my title your own terrific and when you go into a room at the simpsons everyone has to stand in salute. It's almost it. Sounds like we have those like superlative. Elections MISSED OUT ON DREAMY. Us is but I did. Alex Rodriguez weirdly. I thought you were going to go like the titles of a small government which I feel like the simpsons has like you know gone on longer than some small government. Yes well I make the guys refer to me as her Royal Highness yes. That's good her royal longest. I I hear that title is open nowadays so hey might as well move in while you can time but what happened there. I think out there was some stress. And you know some independence issues It would be great. If like the Cinderella story were there was a part to where CINDERELLA GOES. This is fucked in the prince like disaster. We're just GONNA take this. Ip Address Rela Sequel. Is that one interview with Meghan. Markle holding back tears being like. It's it's just really difficult. Oh there yeah yeah. I saw this this. It was like a cover of the. Ted Is Megan Markle's snack choice of snack. The causes of terrorism and I think deforestation was like because Avocados problematic and she likes avocado toast. And you can tell that the is had been sort of squished in there like I just said Megan markle snack causes. We'll make it a question. Is it yeah? Is it doing that and has Greta? Thornburgh weighed in on the climate. Change on her someone who had one and a half avocados yesterday. I feel like I cannot speak to this. I would like it if you would leave. I'm growing an avocado tree. So you can come over. WanNa dance around the house. I'm just doing my best to combat terrorism and thank you for your service twice. First for the Simpson's second Kado. My Country of terrorists hate or love avocado toast. I don't quite meet at us. Yeah I didn't. I didn't read beyond the headlines. Good sometimes that's don't give them the click bait dollars. No I want them all for myself. We're very excited to not only talk about Otto. Koch is to make an Marchal But to do a bit of a deep dive into your origin story and your time on the simpsons but also some of your earlier projects but I can you tell us about child. Kid version of YOU and Maybe a first time that you kind of got the I'm GONNA be in showbiz spark Good well okay. I definitely my favorite way of playing was just full-on make believe even remember there. Were six kids in my family up in Hawaii. I grew up in Hawaii and a cool place to make. I may believe that I would live. And Yeah Absolutely. We have actually the coolest thing we we lived in this. House that had a hedge by offense and the there was a space between the hedge and the F- It was really tall and offense and there was like a little space between two trees it. It wasn't just happened that it made a little door and so we might go in and we would sort of that would be our high too. I mean it wasn't a lot of space it was. You know we were talking a little but we you know it was all very weak and we would find. Oh you know there'd be a certain place where there was because of the branches we could make that a little cubby and little. I don't know what you call that. A little it was it was very that was very conducive to make believe and so I also just. That was just what I really liked to do. We just played that kind of game so I think that was definitely a thing where you like that Julia. Were you a very imaginative child. I I mean I was also obnoxious and was like y'all WanNa be in my play like come on guys but I was just thinking of sort of what was available to me when I was a kid in our backyard. We when I was around four five moved into a house that already had like a little. You know play house. And that was so exciting especially at age five to like have my own little playhouse and then I'm just recalled as you were talking immediately after like I want to say about a year of that. The playhouse got reclaimed by the black widows and we have signed a peace treaty. Between my sister. We shall never cross over and we never cross so I just. I only had a very small beard of time and like a little playoff but then of course you climb trees and do other things and have an imagination. I just remember like this is something that a writing class. Somebody had given me a prompt and it was brought back this memory. I realized how formative this was but there was a point where my brothers and sisters were for some reason not playing with me and I was sort of being the outcast and I was off to one side sort of crying and my babysitter at the time saw that and it wasn't for the most part they weren't parents in my age. I'm a little bit overly weren't exactly as helicopter helicopter. I remember them going like get out and stay. Sometimes because it was why was hot. We'd be like can we come back? No Shave get out something. That's why we found the space between the hedges but I was being ignored and for some reason she saw this if for some reason it had her and she said Kerley come inside and she took me inside and she was a sewer and she just dug through this thing and she just found this piece of something it was probably some kind of Nice evening gown it was sort of Chiffon. He had a little bit of sequence along the edge. It might have had like a sort of opaque under piece. It was a piece of address and she goes here. You can this and you can play with us and I was like oh I just thought it could be. I could wrap it around myself. I can put him and I I came out and it was like oh I got this like so interested in what is it and I was like well and then some people were trying to be like. Well it's not that great and then I had to kind of know owner but it is it is the Cape and then I just started in order to sort of sell it to them and I think succeeded because I remember them being like okay. Well can. We can play with an accident that I was just like Yeah I think about that moment and how much I love that. Scrap of fabric because it was this little You know this this little strength that I had that. Yeah and But I did at ten I. I actually wrote a play. Tell us about us go. How Christmas came to be. I'm sure there were other versions and I stole very much from other from TV. Shows I had seen or other Christmas specials. Yeah that's all. That's a hallmark formula. Yeah you know they just put it into an algorithm now. We didn't have a theater or anything it was really like I. I really don't even fully remember how I do. Remember it was Missy Ron. Oh she gave us the go ahead and so gave us a little bit of time after lunch and I we put it on and we we we lost it for a couple of weeks and then we put it on for the rest of the school and that was a new school too so Because I moved to this place called Pearl Ridge and it was a brand new elementary. We didn't even have a real cafeteria. They would sort of bring in temporary thing so we were there. Were you know blows portable classroom so it was like by bare bones but we like just okay? We emptied out. One of those classrooms pushed all the things inside. Kids sat on floor and it was. Actually you know I remember it being very magical great. That's amazing but doesn't rushmore. It's the same thing. How did your parents react to this? And how much were they encouraging you through all of your kind of creative moments? I just say my parents were not that. I don't even know if they knew about it. When I it's weird that's my parents. Were not very my dad was. Y- think dads today are so much more involved with my dad was not very involved. I mean he was there but he just and this is my Stepdad. And My mother. Didn't I remember like here's the other thing I think my creating started? I was a liar and I remember my your imagination eating and I remember at one point when I was a kindergartner. Telling my mother like she was asking me how was doing school and I was like. I'm doing so good that they're letting me do cafeteria duty. Which kindergartners but I just watched it as a kindergartener. What because especially when you know like you. Don't get to do that to like second grade and I was like. Oh that's the best thing but I remember like thinking so I told my mother I lied are saying that. Yeah. I'm just so good that they they've made me an honorary a cafeteria worker and I even told her we would get these almond cookies. I don't know if you know these Chinese almond cookies and they usually have a little red dot in the middle. I'm not sure what I'm sure. It's some cultural significance. I told my mother that was my job so I posted the red dots a me. That was my child. She was like well. You know spread my job with the red dot is so strange you for a lifetime in the Biz. I WANNA say like my mother was now that can show got confirmation or she just well. You must be doing really well. That they're such an important. I used to work in cafeteria duty. I wanted to say when I was in third grade and it was the best time of my fun. Why is it so one of the things that you have to do? Is You empty out all of the different liquids which would be chocolate milk regular milk and then orange juice into one big been like why. Don't even know what color that makes. Not Nice though. Still Fun Super Fun. I love just dishing out treats for my peers. I definitely lied in a creative ways. Well like not in a way. That hurts anybody type of lying but like I definitely would always brag about what celebrities. We're GONNA come over to my house for dinner. I would definitely now. It's a little different story but I would always say like Michael Jackson's coming over later But then for years I got. I think I would also like to a point where I believe that I had this. Blazer that my dad war for an ACDC costume and Angus young costume. And I wore it to school almost every day and I said like that's actually Angus Young's jacket and like all the eleven year old boy sought it was the coolest thing corn day would be like. Can I wear it and I'm just like if you give me your lunch or like if you like me to anyone that I hurt in the process. We're on the subject. I'm recalling that I made up up boyfriend Middle School strayed and it was very low stakes. Lie because it was just. You know like who's going to press me. We're also in sixth grade. Who's dating coming up?.

A problem hurts businesses and homes and let's try to fix it or we talk about how we have really terrible for fires in the pacific northwest and part of the intensity of those fires is connected to the issue of climate. So how do we talk about what we're seeing because of climate change and how do we address that because the problem that should be addressed rather than real or isn't it. I mean that ladder no. I don't think that if you start there usually run into trouble <hes> we all agree for fires and flooding is bad. Let's talk about how to fix that and that gets us into a conversation eventually about climate so i i saw a believe another podcast asked you if you like star wars or star trek and unfortunately answered incorrectly.

The voters of southwest washington are not reflected at their conversations with me yeah so you teach classes <hes> as you mentioned on political science. <hes> you teach classes on public civility city. Can you tell me how to bring civility back to government sure thank you. That's how much time do we have. The most important thing is to learn to listen so often people listen to respond. They don't listen to understand and one of the things i've learned <hes> while campaigning is you know you've got got two years and you've got one mouse and in order to really have civil conversations with people you have to try to understand where they're coming from and usually we we just get into our corner. We don't seek that common ground so i think always having a mind listening people even if we disagree with them and and understanding where they're coming from provides the foundation for those types of opportunities to learn all my life you know i come from a republican family. I'm married to a conservative <hes> and what we do is we try to find those areas that we agree upon and usually that's values you know we we believe in some our values about liberty and equality and tolerance and certain beliefs about working hard and personal responsibility and you can have conversations on those items and beliefs which could then sometimes conversations about policy <hes> but you really have to start with selecting the right people and if you have that open mind in that perspective and that's what i bring into this campaign. I'm very proud of the civil campaign iran and what i would bring to washington d._c. You can you can't demonize the other side because he disagreed with them. You have to understand we have different opinions or we're all human beings. We all often want the same things. We just have different ways of getting there. This may be an odd follow question but you you have written some books on constitutional law. How do we get back following the constitution first of all again the hiring the right people you know i i talked about the constitution every day and i you know when i hear people who mentioned the constitution or they mentioned certain rights but they don't really understand it but i see running for office is a really good opportunity to talk about constitutionalism just speak about the importance of checks and balances to speak about the dangers of having an imperial presidency and the importance of congress you know doing its constitutional duty on issues as to for trade on on appropriating funds <hes> it it is a fundamental law of the land and we need to return to it and i think it takes having that basic conversation which is <hes> is nonpartisan conversation. The constitution is nonpartisan and we just need to do it more. We need to talk about it more in schools as well see mentioned that you're hearing from people about at the environment <hes> you know it's a beautiful area of the country where you are. I was just <hes> recently just a little bit south of there in oregon and it's just gorgeous just <hes> you know what what are the kinds of things you think could be popularly accepted as as ways to fight climate change to protect the environment in ways that make it more enjoyable for people to to use the outdoors.

What if someone were to be erased while they were famous and misremembered as their life is happening? I don't get it.
