Fresh update on "chanel" discussed on The Business of Fashion Podcast
"So why do you think the other players are being more careful here. A think bad. Chanel has a unique positioning. Insofar as they are one of the only remaining luxury brands were true scarcity is still a part of their model in so far as they do not sell long line. And if you don't have the resources or the time to go to chanel store in a major world capital you won't be getting a chanel bag and that's Part of how they have preserved. The cachet of this brand over time and so in the internet in general has always been problematic for chanel trying to negotiate their relationship with e commerce and social media. Now that we have online resale. It's just added a new complication. Wear their seeing people presenting their products photographing them. Pricing them in ways that don't necessarily align with the brand and how they want to be perceived so they have wanted to take the position that That they are the only place you can buy. Guaranteed one hundred percent authentic. Chanel and anyone. Who's claiming that. Their resale products are that is is not telling. The truth is what they. They've tried to claim that's been their argument bottom. Chanel has this issues issues with the internet. In general and resale has definitely added even more complications to that. Lvmh i think is going to maybe take more conservative stance into than someone like caring but they have a mixed range of brands. A mix of reasons they would either want to get involved or not. I think it's still very much wait-and-see to go back to carrying though carrying has certainly a motivation to show that they are on top of this and to show that you know wherever the action is in fashion. They're making sure they have a seat at the table that they have influence and that they're supporting innovation actually because they position themselves as the most environmentally conscious luxury group and they've been very vocal about their sustainability commitments. They probably can't square that with being quite as adversarial with resale We know that we sale is is really positive. First involvement in terms of ways to consume fashion. So that all makes sense so robert. I think you're avesta collective user you know all these brands seem to have such concerns as you've outlined about being present in that kind of environment about the risk to their brand perception about like from your own personal experience with vast aire collective like what's it like as a as a luxury customer you know engaging with that platform you know i am Tiv user i got into it because of the fact that you know luxury fashion brands. They changed so much from year to year and sometimes the item or the category. You're looking for is something that really is gonna come from the past so for me.

Interview With Emma Grede
"Emma thank you so much for coming on the show. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. How i thank you so much for having way and mary excited to talk to you about everything that you've done but first let's jump into skimming your resume so my best job was when i was like twelve and i had to pay around and it gave me my best taste of cash. Which was just wonderful pitches stopped working since then. I went through the hosted in my life working in retail. And i had always weighty being about sasha i loved that world i come from place where you know. It was really devoid of any kind of fashion obama. So i found was really gravitating towards you. Know just the beauty and the supermodels and the brands you know. As i was growing up it was all about the saatchi and chanel and families that working in designer stores in and then my first proper job of coming out of college. I studied business at the london college of fashion and went straight into fashion. Show production avow myself in this really all. Its little niche because in london guests there. Was this amazing. You know london fashion week. Where all of these brilliant designers but nobody really had the money to put on this show. So i ended up in this strange donation of sponsorship and kind of creighton bronze collaborations with the great and the good of the british fashion industry. And that's weighty. Where taught my teeth. And i think that when i think about what it is today and where i've found my success it already started in those early days of being a production company and really learning how to bridge the gap between the creative businesses that fashion all and and more commercial bronze. And so. yeah. That was it for me. That's that was the beginning of it when something that people would be surprised to know about you. Oh i mean. I guess he will probably be surprised to know like how much about makeup i am. I guess maybe that's not something that you always associated with. Somebody who's an entrepreneur like my favorite thing to do is cooking and making things nice at the house. I'm an absolute festive fruit. Like the idea that. I get thanksgiving on top of christmas. Now i'm living in america could not be a need better. I'm not get to do that. Twice is at christmas participate so right now. That's all i think about is that. What is my thanksgiving menu table. Go look greg bat. That is my job. Elevate okay so. I love opening up our questions with entrepreneurs like yourself by talking about your childhood because our childhoods shape all of us and informs ultimately who we are in in how we make decisions. I want you to paint a picture for us about how you grew up in how you think that's shaped you. Yeah it's a great question on a great more. I failed so much of may an how i behave. How i treat people have chosen to comes from my childhood and you know i had a reedy great childhood. I grew up for e kind of a poll basically in east london very deprived area. And i say it so blatantly as that is because you know. It wasn't only devoid of glamour. It was completely devoid of opportunities. Everybody in that community had lived there their entire lives and you seemingly could get out of it. It was a huge jack of opportunity. A huge lacquers education and i saw for myself in my mother who really kind of broke through an managed to create something else for. She was a single mother with four children and my mom found herself. You know working in the stock exchange becoming a trader having a job for twenty plus years at morgan stanley. And that for me was you know it was just like a gateway sunday could see that you know you could create with with a lot of hard work and today and if you really did that you get rid of that to pay off then you could really really really change your outlook very very early on i. I really believe that the harder. I what the more likely would be to get myself out of. Why soares a pretty kind of dire situation but of course when you live and you grow up like that doing something you know. I could understand it if you're a doctor lawyer or going into banking fashion just didn't seem like a way out to me and so there are times in my life where i definitely thought. Oh am i on the wrong path which is ultimately why. I went and studied business at the london college fashion. Because i believe that. If i could set that foundation in business and have this specialism fashion that at least it would ground me that if all that fun bit didn't work out. I'd still have the basics of business. And i could go and run construction company. Also something

Nobody wears fur any more
"It's time to talk business. Now, with Dana Thomas, who's the paris-based? All of fashion operas the price of fast fashion and the future of closed Dan. Thanks so much for joining us. I must tell you that I have a relative who works in fashion and a little while ago. She very generously I thought started gifting me all these beautiful firs which she said she wasn't going to wear again I now understand why nobody's wearing her. Nobody's wearing for it took pita the people for Africo treatment of animals what thirty years to get this message through the heads of fashion industry players. But it seems like they're finally getting with the getting on board and they're slowing down or or banning. Nordstrom the. The American Department Store Big Department Store one of the few that. Actually is not completely shattered by the pandemic they managed to pull through Is Giving up selling furry will not be selling for I don't think for was a huge part of Nordstrom business. Nordstrom is a very middle market, suburban shopping mall kind of department store. So the for that they would sell would have been like the trim on your Parka or a little trim on a cough as opposed to a mink you wouldn't go to Nordstrom to buy a full length mink coat, but nevertheless there there disavowing vote as has macy's and Chanel a lot of brands have finally given up on it. I don't know what this is doing for the for instance, which is powerful and big industry and the for industry has made. Big Advances in over the years because of the pressure from Petah to make sure that that the whole. Farming, side of it was as humane as possible given you know in the end, you're killing animals for to wear clothing. You know more more humane certainly than the industrial agriculture side for cowhide for our handbags. But you know nevertheless, it seems like you know when they banned fog is in certain states. In the United States, this band for first serves feels like the same we're going to ban for not that anyone's really wearing it right now or that any can. Really afford it right now because they've all lost their shirts during the pandemic, but it's a good idea and maybe we should do it. So they're doing it and I think we're going to see a lot less than the streets but I mean all does and you point out that the house bill shoes I mean we're not talking about banning leather shoes. But you know. Gucci famously put out. mink trimmed Mules Apple seasons ago when I said Rubel Kelly took over the house and they were really popular. I remember seeing a woman on an airplane and I thought wow, that's really decadent. and. It feels really calm. It looks like it's probably really comfortable for an airplane to you WanNa you WanNa, wear something cushy on your feet. Right? I thought that is so decorated it feels like Louis Kettles and we won't be seeing at least being sold at Nordstrom. We won't be seeing those shoes anymore more. Then, and we don't have a lot of time but a very quick look at where we are in this case between tiffany and lvmh. Well, tiffany has decided to countersue. So I mean everyone's suing everybody else and it's it's just back and forth and back and forth tiffany says it did not experienced a managed material adverse effect during the pandemic and that basically lvmh trying to get a better deal, which is what we all believe it is and it says the lvmh's specious arguments are yet another blatant attempt to evade its contractual obligation to pay the agreed upon price for Tiffany and you know they're go to just fight this and see what happens I'm I'm interested to see how this plays out absolutely tiffany needs a sale and Wants it. Somebody's going to figure out the middle ground now? Why does tiffany need to sail? It's it's been in play for some time and it's it's kind of an a stuck place. They redid the store somewhat in New York. But it it a point where it needs to grow change or evolve at. It's kind of stuck an lvmh with its synergies and it's and it's specially it's retail network but also its whole marketing department everything would really give the brand a boost in a way that would take it to a new place tiffany's sort of motoring along but not great. Yeah. That's why it's been. The object of you know it's been. Looked at as a possible takeover lvmh just going to swoop in and buy a bowl the stock, and they still just may do that
Paris Fashion Week will go ahead this September
"And, finally, on today's program off to Paris to get a roundup of a busy few days in the fashion calendar, I'm joined on the line by Dana Thomas Journalist and author of fashion apples the price of fast fashion the future of clothes always good at talking to maybe just bring us up speed quickly on what has what the show is look like I was in Paris a few weeks ago there was much discussion. Where we're going to be world video presentations again, and many brands saying very committed to actually getting models, and of course, journalists and buyers in seats again and having them walk down a catwalk. What happened. Well some of that's happening. There are shows and people are attending. In fact, there's an official French calendar and on the French calendar, it should it tells who is going to be showing like Gabriella Hurston who is going to be digital chanel showing some people are doing digital. Some people are doing both. The same in Milan summer having shows and some are digital and. I don't know who's attending. I saw that Brian boy the the influence Sir is back in Milan and he's thrilled to be back in. Milan. I saw that on his instagram or his twitter feed but I mean, I know that for example, I contribute to the New York Times magazine is a New York Times as a freelancer, and that team is not coming to Paris spending Friedman's reviewing everything from her home in New York. So you know I know that. Americans aren't really aren't allowed to come to Europe anyway. So there's the whole Chinese can't people can't come to. Europe. A lot of people can't travel. So I, think it's mostly people who are in town who are going I was asked to go to some shows in Paris I have no interest going to watch them on digital. Why do you have no interest I'm curious because you're part of this. You know we're all in this together we that we we have to go out and support and a lot of people say the same thing with sporting events as well. Of course, if the if the guidelines are followed, etc you know. These things tend to drift away and become part of the sideline or do you think that the future is digital? We don't need to go to shows anymore even go into shops. I think that know they're pushing it too soon too fast. I. Think you know we don't need to go into shops and or we don't need to go to fashion shows right now. In fact to me, they feel frivolous and not taking what's going on terribly seriously Yes. We need to boast our our morale a bit by sitting next to people who could have the bro The bug and sitting there with a mask on and you can catch union, catch it through your eyes. You know I don't feel like taking that risk I'd rather be safe and I think that's the most important thing right now.

Human Beings Being Human
"Hello. This is peace out stories for coming down and relaxation. My name is Chanel. This season, we talked about the life cycle of Pebbles Gio, D- mice, helium tomatoes trees, Sea Stars Sea. Salmon CICADAS and of course, the T. Rex. And now we're here. At the last episode of our fourth season. And it's all about you. It's about us. Human. Beings. Sit in a comfortable position. Rest your hands on your knees. If, you'd like to lie down go ahead. We're GONNA take our time settling into this first part today. Close Your eyes if you'd like. Breathing. In and. What's going through your mind right now? Our minds are always making thoughts. So. Sometimes, it might feel like we're standing in a river. The thoughts always flowing. and. They'll keep flowing and going. and. That's okay. But sometimes it can feel like to watch. If. We need a break from the flowing thoughts instead of trying to stop them instead of letting the water carry you away. There's always the option to. Step right out of the water. And sit on the riverbank and have arrest. You can just sit. And enjoy watching the water run by. But you're not feeling the push of it. Not Worried about where the water's coming from or where it's going. And then when you're ready and want to get back into the cool water. You'll be able to play in it and stand strong for longer. If the flowing river our thoughts. then. That little break on the riverbank is mindfulness. Mindfulness is about staying in the present moment. Not Thinking about what's happened in the past. Or worrying about what might happen in the future? Just being here. Now. Take notice of your breathing right now. Is it slowing down Or fast. Is it long and deep. Or short shallow. You don't have to change anything about it right now. Just notice it. Our brains are always working and making judgments on the information thoughts and experiences coming in. If you've seen the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory You'll probably remember seen when Ruka Salt Sasi Geese that lay golden inks. The golden eggs would come down onto the educators scale that would decide whether it was a good egg. Or A bag. Well, of course, in real life, there are many more judgments beyond good or bad. But, the brain is like that educator. Taking in each thought and making a quick automatic decision if it likes it and tells us that we should keep looking for these good things or doesn't like it and tells us to avoid these things. Or maybe our brain is neutral about them. We don't really have to pay attention or do anything about it. That brings us to another big part of being mindful. Letting. Go of the judgment. Our brains will always be judging the information coming in. which is not a bad thing. Let's say Mr Willy Wonka began noticing that there have been a lot of bad aches lately. He might wonder. Why are my kiessling so many bad eggs. Are They not getting enough healthy food. Not Enough water. Maybe, we should give them more to eat every day or something different to eat on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Should I get the Olympus to check on the more? Are the bad eggs really that bad. Maybe I need to think about how we measured what good eggs. And change it. Or maybe I need to let my geese run freely in a big field and not keep them in this room.
One of the Biggest Tekken Tournaments of All Time Never Paid Anyone
"Well over a year ago in March of two, thousand and nineteen, a series of East sports events were held in Khobar Saudi, Arabia including. The True Gaming Tekken invitational this single tournament featured a prize of one hundred, ten thousand dollars USD, which was then the single largest prize pool in taking history for a little context, the two thousand eighteen technical tour finals at a prize pool of Twenty Five K. and Evokes Tekken Prize. Pools are even lower than that and heavy hitters from around the world came to participate. In this thing, I'm talking to likes of Don's knee Chanel. Roma. Are Slash you get the picture from a production standpoint the true gaming tech invitational grave they had an awesome stage set up the stream quality was good. The had commentator and analyst desk great camerawork was clean and in terms of the actual game play competitively, the tournament was great i. mean we saw some of the best players of all time from all around the world give us some unforgettable moments. But after all that confetti was cleaned up after the stage was dismantled in after the community's attention shifted to other events there remained one big problem. Apparently nobody paid. Now this all hit the public's attention in a big way only recently when tech master provident fighting game player and one of the invitees to the gaming tech invitational tweeted about not receiving his prize money from a different event that was organized by the same people. Now, as far as the true gaming tech invitational goes the one with one hundred, Thousand Dollar Prize Pool I talked to tech and master about it, and he said that communication between the players who are owed money in the company who produced the event true gaming hasn't exactly been productive when it comes to when how or infant if they'll get their prize after one month. A number to contact with and every time the new right it's. Like on the process of giving you the process guys. we'd be coming back to you on. Data to and every time like the guy is saying, he did not receive any funding for the first. He's promised to receive it a next month. Don't want everytime delays rate rate until. One year happened instead even. One year under half extra. Here's the thing though true gaming say that they were hired just to produce the event and that the prize money has nothing to do with them at all I managed to get in contact with a guy named a Med almost STAFA. Who is the head of business development at true gaming and he says that the true gaming tech invitatinal took place within a larger event called. Gamers con. He told me that the owner operator of that event, a company called. Tail Events Exhibitions Management Co is responsible for the prize money we correspond over email about it and let me read to you what he told me quote true gaming's role in the event was to operate the competitions and gaming centered activities that have relied on our gaming industry knowledge and know-how. Our team has been contacted by the winners and his forwarded their grievances to k all A and have shared all contact information directly Takeo so that there is a direct. Line of communication and no delay caused by layered communications in the later email he also told me quote we've tried to finalize this matter on numerous occasions. We were even under the impression that it was going to conclude a sooner time and we are completely taken aback by how all have. Let this drag on for so long and quote worth noting here that shortly after I got in contact with gaming, they released a public statement about the matter that was. Very much in line with what they told me privately as far as this K- All events exhibitions management company goes that's where the trail goes a little cold for me I tried calling them with a number on their website and for me it didn't work I tried tweeting out I've emailed them and I tried to use a contact form on their website that is broken apparently so far as of the filming of this video I haven't heard anything back from them. Hubbert. Ladies Tom. Blood I can mean a look at a High Horse Shukran your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please make sure you enter the correct number. It's probably also worth noting here that there were a bunch of other invitational tournaments that took place on the same weekend within this gamers con that we're all organized by true gaming there was rocket league invitational. There was a beep invitation on their Mash Bros invitation and like I said, they were all organized by true gaming who seem to be a company who do everything from eastport centric youtube videos to mainstream game reviews to event production. Now, let's just back up for a quick second. Because there are other entities involved in this issue beyond just the players true gaming and this K- All events and Exhibitions Management Company, and I'm talking about agencies for the Saudi Arabian government see according to Tech and master about six months after the event when it became clear that they weren't going to get their prize money anytime soon, a lot of deep participants in the gaming, Tech. Invitational. Got Together an organized to try to figure out what their next steps they went to a guy who goes by the tag burke came and he contacted to Saudi Arabian government agencies namely, the General Entertainment Authority in Saudi Arabia and more pointedly. The Saudi Arabian Federation for Electric Intellectual Sports see the true gaming invitational had to be sanctioned by these bodies in order to put on their event in the first place and as to who this Berkane guy is. He is a Saudi Arabian eastport seen community leader and individual player manager who has served as a sort of go between between the players, the T os, and the government agencies that oversee East sports in Saudi Arabia and he told me that he's been in contact with those government agencies and they are actively investigating this situation. As we speak I have conducted the federation on behalf of some of the players and they. Did investigate the issue and I believe they have officially contacted all the parties involved in this case on soon, they would return resolve at least from where I'm sitting it's not going to be easy to figure out who's actually on the hook for this money according to Tech Master Burt. CAIN and some other folks I spoke to nobody actually signed any kind of contract or documentation that stipulated how when or I guess technically even if they would get paid out this prize money according to Burke Cain East sports in Saudi Arabia is still very much in a phase where contracts are not the standard sports itself and Saudi is still new. and. It started based on community efforts where almost everything was based on trust. That moved along when he sports stuff to grow on many companies started to throw big huge ovens. Everyone trusts what's being advertised after all the low in Saudi will hold you accountable for what you advertise. Let's say trust is what? being practiced here in Saudi I do believe that should change and perhaps tap. Last year will rise the awareness in the community

Do they mean your like your comedy stylings no like me? You're wow. I don't think you'll vain and shallow. I think you as a woman of great depth and a lot of self awareness. I know that's great but the other one. Just sound so much more sexy. Yeah sounds fun now. I see that I see that. I'm a feminist but I love that people call a vodka soda with a dash of cranberry the guilty feminist cocktail. Even though it used to be called a rose Kennedy. I have taken another woman drink. But she was super rich and I'm not sure she was very nice. Some good with it. Jfk's mom she had many children but most of them seem to be men who cheated on him. So I'm fine with it. I think all of the men that she had she decided she you decide. That's father Shay Med. She had a daughter that had a lobotomy. Oh my God yeah. It's dark that's a sad story. Yeah Yeah I'm a feminist but I've been very anxious about my teenage daughters social life since seeing her birthday. Wish list was only books honestly. I was like who is this child. What's happened to her? Then I was like drugs. Do you think my husband was like. Why would you think that I'm like she doesn't want makeup similar Claude? What's wrong with her? But I worry I mean you're a teenager like but anyway she's a good kid but still. I am a feminist wearing all black and polls because it makes me feel like Chanel. Like Coco Chanel. But then I have to remind myself she was a Nazi sympathizer and not want to look like her. But then I have to push that out of my mind so we can enjoy the black dress in the polls i. I'd like to be able to carry off like a big flower like chest flour when she used to wear like a black outbreak. Gardenia. I'd like to be able to pull off an oversized one. I don't think I am a feminist but when people find out I've been married twenty two years and they try and do the math to figure out how old I am I always say. Don't bother child bride. It happens a lot where I'm from. So they're like okay. I'm a feminist if if Pretty Patel lost her job and her cat away and she went to boot to spend boot points and they said Oh sorry these have expired and she went to parties to use her sixth session and they said Oh. Sorry you had to use that by Friday and Saturday morning and then she went to McDonald's after an hour and they said Oh sorry. We're not serving chips anymore. The chips have run out. We're not gonNA put anymore because we're just about to close the door. And then she went home and she lost her the key to her house and the people inside were asleep and she was like oh they couldn't hear her or they probably pretended they couldn't yeah don't realize living with her that much and then had to go and sleep on a bench and then in the morning she woke up and she remembered that she didn't have a job and she felt super super bombed out and then she went back to boots with the cart. Said look please. I've only reward points like sorry expired. You should have used them before. Pretty Patel at everyone in the letter of the letter of the Law Letter. I would be fine with it

Just what's the rate movie. Just the right book just the right show to binge pop culture happy hour from. NPR can help you keep warm keep up at the same time. Join US twice week on pop culture. Happy hour this is one A.. I'm Joshua Johnson back now to our conversation with Chanelle Miller. The writer artist advocate and author of the a new memoir. No My name. Let's get to some listener questions. One of our listeners wrote. I feel seen by Chanel though what happened to us was different. I'm so thankful for or her strength. Chanel that strength among other things kind of allowed you as you write to reach this turning point before the verdict and sentencing. Will you thought about what happened. Happened to you in a larger. Systemic sense about criminal justice and law enforcement and leniency in the way that victims are treated offenders are treated talk about that shift. And where are you saw yourself fitting in in terms of advocating a better criminal justice system I think you know I was a quote unquote the best case scenario in these cases you rarely have witnesses. I had to sober unbiased. Witnesses who Caught my assailant red handed. Now I had all of my evidence collected. He had all of his evidence collected. I got a ride to the hospital. Little an ambulance to get a rape kit. Done less than twenty four hours after it happened. I did everything a victim is supposed to do when an assault happens and yet look where it left me that terrified me that this is sort of the best weekend ask for then even. When can you take all the steps necessary? You're still going to endure so much brutality. You're still going to find it. Really Difficult Colt to exist in the world when the system spits you out again so I couldn't sleep thinking that I was a victim. VIP right that this is good treatment. I couldn't accept that you know something has to change with regard to those changes California's California's former governor Jerry. Brown signed two bills into law three years ago. They create a mandatory prison sentence for the assault of an unconscious or intoxicated person. Because of you've your case or other specific changes is there may be like a one chain to the top of your list that you would also like to see made for dealing with cases of sexual sexual violence. Yeah I would love for us. Defined rape crisis centers you know. I was assaulted on Stanford campus abyss. I was taken a half hour south to San Jose because that was the nearest hospital where I could get a rape kit done. You know even having access S. Two these centers in order to collect evidence in the first place is extremely valuable and vital. I'm sorry I know you were raped at Stanford which is is a university that has a gigantic medical school and multiple hospitals that is expanding and they had to drive you down to Santa Clara our county to get to San Jose to get a rape kit correct. How the hell is that by Stanford's medical gigantic and they don't have rape kits on Tampa's yeah I mean? I woke up extremely confused. I thought I was at Stanford Hospital so you know if you think about something as simple simple as transportation how do you get to the hospital. If you're assaulted on Stanford campus do you call an Uber. You're not allowed to change out of your clothes. Rose you know you're not allowed to shower if you want to collect evidence properly so who's GonNa take you to ask your one friend on campus. Who has a car you know? These are very simple things that we don't even think about when we ask victim to report a few more quick questions. I'd like to ask you in the time we have left. Let me get to a question from amy who emailed. My daughter was raped in her first week of college and is struggling to come to grips with trauma. It was in many aspects very similar to your experience. It happened over the three years ago and we are at a loss as to how to help her. She refuses to go to counseling and is floundering and a self medicating loop of marijuana and alcohol. Any suggestions Russian's would be most helpful. Chanel yeah I would say. Just be patient. I think I I was going through a lot to that. I could not process. I feel like I was on an expedited timeline. Because I was going through court. You know the only reason I finally sought out therapy is because I had to testify for the preliminary hearing. I showed up three weeks before I was called to testify why I found a therapist and said you need to get me ready you know. I treated her almost like a personal trainer but I was forced to process. I would say you to the first thing you need to establish for. A victim is agency. She's had her agency stripped away from her. So instead of saying you need to do this or this you can lay out options for how to move forward or what to do but ultimately it is her A.. Who has to choose those options because that choice is what she needs? Finally I wonder if you are hopeful for the future future. I know that the movement's resurgence has really changed. The conversation on sexual assaults embolden many women to tell their stories just as you have. The Nation had a very intense conversation station about sexual assault allegations after Christine Blasi four testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about now. Supreme Court Justice Brad Kavanagh. How hopeful are you that things are changing with that testimony with more women sharing their stories? Are we moving in the right direction. I do think we're moving in the right direction and I do you constantly feel hopeful. You know watching all these women come forward before me propelled me to come forward. They were the ones who you showed me that. I do have a space in this world. A right to take up space and to be loud and that encouraged me to become visible. Double I hope that my becoming visible will help others out there you know. I know that none of us are going anywhere. You know. We're going to keep keep fighting. I know that in my bones and I am so encouraged by all the women surrounding me and so yes. I am extremely hopeful Chanel Miller the new book is called. No My name a memoir. Chanel I appreciate you talking to us. I look forward to seeing that.

What are you not quite it used to just you know feeling that little tingler recognition that this is me and being okay with it I think for a long time I refused is to accept that I was the person inside this case it was much easier to China live in normal life outside of the courtroom and sort of separate my identity inside inside the courtroom and outside outside I still had friends? I still had things that I loved doing inside the courtroom. I was often stripped ripped of identity. I'm I didn't have any characteristic traits. I was extremely isolated and so that person was someone I didn't want to affiliate with now that I've written the Book I've been able to merge those two people to integrate that entire courtroom experience into the context of my a life and I can exist as a full an authentic person and I think that someone that something that everybody wants is a part of why you decided. It's who wrote the memoir. I imagine being known as Emily Dough to the public made it easier to kind of an. And maybe not. But my presumption is that it makes it easier in some ways. He's to compartmentalize. Who are from what happened to you? Was that integration. Part of what made you decide to write the book. Yeah I think think I realized you know this has been an extremely formative experience and I'm not ashamed of it. I've allowed it to informed who I am now. You know I think in the beginning your instinct is to rid yourself of the experience to be in denial of it and I realized over time that you get to decide how the experience lives inside you. you can let it inform you in fuel you and I've learned to take away the positive traits that I've garnered from it. You know I'm more assertive now. I'm self reliant I feel feel confident in where I stand. I'm not afraid to fight for other survivors and proud of what I've been through These are the characteristics I take with me and I'm a powder to sign my name to that. I do want to talk about what happened to you as well as where you are now and kind of the trajectory of your life where we're your heading talk about when you decided to press charges after this assault the Frat party everything that happened. Imagine that you you had certain impressions of the legal system and what it would mean to navigate that system as a survivor of sexual assault before you were actually in the system. And I'm back. Yes yeah I decided to press charges within twenty four hours of of leaving the hospital. I got a call from the detective asking if I wanted to. I said Yes not knowing what the implications would be. I still didn't know Oh did not know what the charges even were After I came home from the hospital I was left in silence for ten days. I didn't receive any calls or messages and one day I went into work and I was checking the news sitting at my desk. And that's when I learned what happened to me and read about the way my body was found half naked with one breast exposed my waist it down exposed pine needles embedded throughout my hair And that was a surreal out of body experience At that outpoint I didn't think pressing charges would go anywhere to me. It was a very clear case. You know how could that have been in a consensual encounter if that was how I was abandoned I didn't think it would go anywhere. And instead dead. I found that my assailant was pushing back as hard as he could. And would use every resource to try and discredit me and make me go away. But I refused to do that. You said that you were left in silence for ten days after the assault I hear that correctly. Yes what were you thinking about. During those ten days I mean I had been told that I was found and that someone had been acting hinky around around me. I didn't know what that meant acting. Hanky yes I think. They were trying to protect me until they knew the facts access the case they didn't WanNa give me misguided information so they were working on their end to clear things up But I was not given any information to exactly where and how I was found and so I thought oh I had passed out. You know I'm taking care of now. I can go home and they told me to keep living your life into that said I tried to do. I WANNA go back to the victim. Impact statement that was published By buzzfeed news back in two thousand sixteen. This is something you read directly to your assailant in court before the judge rendered a sentence we've heard from some of our listeners about the impact act of that impact statement Lindsey wrote on our facebook page as part of our take back tonight events at the college where I teach. We did a huge sit in and read her letter together together. It was extremely powerful. Chanel what were you hoping to convey through this letter I had just been muted for so so long. Every time you testify you're only allowed to answer directly to the questions being asked of you. You know you're not allowed to express emotion openly. You're forced to sit 'n be even tempered and calm to never talk back. And it was a lot to digest I wanted to convey that. I was suffocating that I was extremely angry. I was angry angry because I was in immense amount of pain. When you talk about these cases often we focus on the physical assault? You know the graphic details sales of it. I wanted to convey that. The aftermath is just as important to add to the calculation of the harm. There's so much emotional. And psychological ecological damage that follows these assaults. You know and I wanted to convey that. I've had a nuanced experience. That can't be summed up in neat little news articles that this will affect me forever. That's what I needed them to hear. We WanNA play another good chunk of your victim impact statement but before I do. I wonder what it's been like for you getting some of the responses from people support and gratitude and. I'm sure it was just kind of at times. I'm guessing overwhelming. But what was it like for you to get the reaction to people reaction from people to what you wrote absolutely incredible i. I don't know if people have realized they're responsible. Bond symbol for saving me there many times. I wanted to give up on myself even writing the book there are days. I questioned why I was submerging myself. Itself in the past repeatedly seemed so unhealthy to be kind of marinating in the Israeli awful memories but I had received so many supportive would've letters from people who always just said all we wish for is your healing. We need you to keep walking for us and so even on days where I felt like oh I don't want to keep going. I knew other people did and that would mean a lot to them. If I continued to seek out joy and make myself better header and so I did. Let's play another piece of that victim. Impact Statement which you read again earlier this year during your interview with sixty minutes. It's just under two minutes long but we think it's important to play a good chunk of this here. Again is another excerpt of the victim. Impact statement written by Chanel Miller. How Fast Brock Swims does not lessen the severity of what happened to me and should not lessen the severity of his punishment? If a first time offender from an underprivileged background was accused of three felonies in displayed no accountability for his actions. Other than drinking. What would his sentence be? The fact that brock was an athlete at a private university. Should not be seen as an entitlement to leniency. But as an opportunity to send a message that sexual assault is against the law regardless of social class the probation officer her has stated that this case when compared to other crimes of similar nature maybe considered less serious due to the defendants level of intoxication occasion. It felt serious. That's all I'm going to say. What has he done to demonstrate that he deserves a break? He's only apologized for drinking and has yet to define what he did to me. As sexual assault is re victimized me continually relentlessly. He has been found guilty of three serious felonies and it is time for him to accept the consequences of his actions. He will not be quietly quietly excused. He is a lifetime sex registrant that doesn't expire just like what he did to me doesn't doesn't expire doesn't just go away. After a set number of years it stays with me. It's part of my identity. It is forever changed the way I carry myself the way I live the rest of my life. That's part of the victim. Impact statement written by Chanel Miller something in that victim. Impact statements Chanel in part of the back story of all of this has always we stood out to me. I was in the San Francisco Bay area when your case was in the news. I was there before I moved to. DC and one of the things that I feel like a lot of people. All kind of grappled with unfortunately at your expense was the nature of the criminal justice system. This idea that this all American kid who was a star swimmer at a a big name university could have his whole life ruined. and Oh it must be lenient. I think kind of slapped a lot of people in the face at the same time we were looking at the East Bay not thirty miles away from Stanford at unarmed black men being shot in Oakland with no accountability. I I wonder what it was like for you. Being in the middle of this much a bigger conversation about law Justice Crime Enforcement Accountability sentencing that began as just this very personal assault. It became something much much much bigger. yeah I think in these cases there's so much pressure on the victim to be good. I feel like often people of color have to prove why we shouldn't be hurt. We have to show you that. We're human that we have have families that we have good backgrounds and I don't like that it often feels like are worth has to be earned that it's not inherent inherent and I'm sorry you said we use people of Color. I I should have. Actually how do you identify as an Asian American woman. Gotcha great thank you. You go ahead sorry. Privileged to me is never being forced to examine your own behavior I felt throughout the The proceedings brock was never challenged. He was largely taken care of. He never had to do the work of introspection. You know to show that he was even interested in reformation I felt like they treated his act like a temporary lapse in his character that ultimately he was a model citizen but they're single action not define him and that was largely unfair to me. Could you empathize Chanel with why people thought that way. I mean I think that there is is this kind of impulse from people where they want to see the best in people and I think they want to believe that a young man who does something stupid or egregious regis or criminal comes from certain kind of backgrounds and looks a certain way might have redemption in his future. I know that's not fair to you but I wonder how you view that mentality now with the benefit of of experience sure I also believe in redemption after this happened. What I expected from him was an apology? I was fully ready to hear and to receive it and to Asto wish him well and instead he fought me actively he used every tool in the book at me and my family's expense and so I do believe in people owning up to their actions and vowing to do better. I think that's all you can hope for. From these cases that people actually learn so it shocked me was that he never showed that he had learned anything. He was in denial throughout the year and a half and never took accountability for his actions and was still rewarded with the lenient. The sentence that to me says no he's led off without even doing the work and that's not okay please into also the media narrative around the way that your story was told all right. Yes how much of that rankled you at the time or was it something you thought about. In retrospect I just felt like it was so difficult for me to be humanized. His characters were his best characteristic traits. Were constantly put on on display. I felt like I had to prove that I was someone who is also cared about. That also had a future with things that I wanted to do that. We're at stake dake and it took me a long time to be able to convey that. I have to say Chanel in really really glad that I get a chance to talk to you because I remember kind of watching.

"My guest has been psychiatrist, Dr Kelly, Brogan. She is author of the book a mind of your own, and there's a link to her book at Amazon in the show notes per share you being here Dr. Thank you. Even if you don't wear Chanel, perfume, the perfume you do wear was at least partially inspired by Chanel. Let me explain Chanel number five is the most famous and popular perfume of all time yet. It has such an odd name, why? Well, when Coco Chanel introduced it in nineteen twenty one, it changed the perfume industry forever up until then perfumes were extracted from flowers and smelled very flowery. But Chanel wanted something that evoked more femininity than flowery. So she hired a chemist who presented her with several different concoctions. They were numbered one through five and twenty through twenty four at first Coco Chanel liked number twenty two and offered it for sale. Chanel, twenty two is still available today, but. CoCo eventually decided that number five was the real winner. And she saw no reason to change the name Chanel. Number five is a very complicated formula with approximately eighty ingredients, and that formula is known only to a handful of people because of the success of Chanel. Number five, perfume Coco Chanel always presented her new clothing collections every year on February fifth and August fifth, and that is something you should know if you enjoy this podcast, please take a moment and share it with someone. You know if everybody did that, we, we double our audience that may maybe a bit optimistic, but, but help me try. I'm Mike Carruthers. Thanks for listening today to something you should know..
