"The purest toss tossups. So that's the thing even if you know. Mcauliffe is winning by five points. I could still see. Nancy guy going down So you know it is. It's a tough pick. Yeah i always get nervous. When we are talking about elections in virginia beach in the hampton roads area one. The republicans generally have a very strong political machine and operation. Out there too. There's a lot of military voters in that in those areas who are transient so the elector is not necessarily the same electorate. That was there even in the last election. But as you said nancy guys should be okay. The incumbency advantage here is going to be her friend. Also not running against us. Tally is going to be her friend. So we'll see how she does on election day but i think ultimately she hangs on. I didn't say that she should be okay. I'm saying that it is literally flip a coin literally like i'm saying she should be okay. Yeah we a. That's your prediction. We'll see. I mean you may be right again because i just i just have no idea. I literally have no idea who's gonna win this. It's going to be a tough call for me to pick your in two weeks from now. Rest assured our listeners will let us know one way or the other after the only adults come in so another virginia beach seat. Worth looking at is the one held by delegate. Alex ask you. This is yet another one of those seats. That flipped in two thousand. Seventeen when cheryl turpin knocked off. Delegate rocky holcomb. Turpin of course is no longer on the scene because he ran unsuccessful senate campaigns. We've got incumbent delegate. Alex ask you hear the republican. He's running against is karen greenhouse. Chaz what do we make this race for house. District eighty five. I got us a toss up. But i think this race i think in the final predictions are gonna have this still democratic. I think alex asked his run a great campaign and now he's the incumbent and i don't think karen green how has run a stellar campaign. I think Not not a bad campaign precipitate. It's all right. You know this district to get bluer. Redistricting used to be a trump by district and now it is a clinton by district. But you know. This isn't a double digit biden district by newly one this single digits. I wanna say something. Like eight or nine points and You know virginia's very much. Republican favoring Down ballot so it is toss up but i think in the final predictions. I'm going to have this. This tilt democratic. Well one last race went to talk about in hampton where we've got delegate martha mugler in house district ninety one. This is a seat. That flipped in two thousand nineteen when gordon heltzel did not run for reelection so martha mugler won that seat when it was opened this year. Her republican opponent is a ac cordova. Chaz what do we make this race for house district. Ninety one in hampton. Yes so there are only two Incumbent democrats in the house who come and democrats in the house. We're in competitive races. Who were actually able to beat buying twenty twenty margin and the other one..

"But i don't think Young can as randy a glaspie twenty seventeen campaign so i think It all depends on that is going to be A suburban swing back to the republicans. If so how big is it going to be. If not then will it can hold on and you know i would argue that. Let's say that there could be possibility that you know you have some of these democratic incumbents in competitive races who outrun mcauliffe. I think based on the two thousand nineteen results. I would say. There's a strong argument. That will could be one of the. I think there's a possibility that right. Has you mentioned that. Two thousand seventeen blue wave yet. Another one of those flips. That year was dawn. Adams knocked off mentally lou. Posse there in the richmond area this year. Delegate adams has a republican candidate mark early junior. Of course a marquee name in virginia politics. Chaz what do we make of this race for house district sixty eight. Yeah look this race was only so close. Given manolas posse was just such a very very wildly popular incumbent. This race was decided. By what like three hundred votes in twenty seventeen. I want to say and this seat is like one of the most rapidly trending toward the democrats rapidly left trending seats in the donald trump era It's a very i. It will only elect the most moderate of moderate republicans And mark early. Junior isn't really that manolas posse was but lou policy isn't here. It's marley junior. This is the seat that unless young can is winning the gubernatorial race is not gonna flip. So we've got this likely democratic. Just like the goose race. Eighty twenty In terms of odds. So i think don adams's likely to hold on the other thing to keep in mind too. I believe. correct me if i'm wrong. The airlines are from virginia beach or thereabouts. And therefore mark early does not necessarily have an established network in richmond. His dad also yes. Attorney general however not popular and some people would characterize it as getting run out of the party toward the end so early. Junior might be the best republican that they could come up with for the moment against on out of his but he had to move into the district. His family isn't really from around richmond. And i still think having a local person in districts around richmond matters less so than transient areas like the beach or northern virginia. But i think it still matters here so mark early junior also not his family not being super popular with the republican establishment in town. I don adams has been able to walk the line. Extraordinarily moderate republican and be inoffensive to the republican establishment in town. Another race in richmond worth talking about is house. District seventy two currently held by scholar. Van valkenberg now back in two thousand seventeen. This was a seat that flipped from our two de delegate. Jimmy massey did not running again so it was an open seat when it flipped to schuyler van valkenburgh this year. He's got a republican opponent. Christopher homes not the guitar player for the heavy metal band wasp at different chris. Holmes chestnutty come. What do we make of this race for house. District seventy two. Yeah i would say Schuyler scott a lean democratic race on his hands possibly likely democratic.

"It would take a pretty enormous red wave not just read like tied. Like i think there's going to be i think republicans pick up a few seats by the democrats. Hold everything by the skin of their teeth when it comes to the house and then you have relatively close races from state wides. It would take a republican over performance compared to my expectations for the seat to flip yet gives made a very wise decision by dropping out of her statewide race in order to hold onto her house seat. And that i think is going to make all the difference in this race. Had she not done that and that were an open seat because she hadn't ran again then. I think that it would be very much tossup anybody's race but qslon here ultimately tending some mysterious red wave that has not yet materialized views. Mine is going to be okay turning our attention to centerville. We've got delegate. Dan helmer in house district forty. He was able to knock off delegate tim hugo in two thousand nineteen so this is not a seat that flipped in two thousand seventeen But sort of came later in that two thousand nineteen election cycle That delicate hammers against herald hyeon. Chaz what do we make of this race for house district forty. Yeah we've got this see as tilt democratic so helmets. Got a sixty percent chance of winning reelection. I could even see this race going up a notch in the final predictions up to like Seventy percent chance to lean democratic column for helmer. I think pioneers Ron a pretty good campaign. I think he's had a few missteps but look one thing that he need to do. In order for an upset here is the minority communities in the fortieth would d- to be peeled off and he would have to overperform them. Especially the asian american community the venture but made a good point about that on how that was how republicans are able to win back some of the orange county california seats and twenty twenty. You know they ran great asian american. Can it's like The congressman from california's thirty ninth. Young kim not yunqin young kim but Yeah so i think If he's able to do that you know you could definitely see an upset here. Helmer has been winning the money race and whatnot of course but You know i. He's favored i think he's favored i if You know i'm the head of democratic party. Not sweating the seat too much It's just something now. I would keep on the radar. Yeah that's the district. I actually grew up in. Mike lynch has and dan helmer knocked on my parents door and my mom very nicely asked him for sign and so she has the for the first time ever mccullough helmer yard sign for any candidate in front of her house and she tells me the reason for that is because the republican opponent is winning. The yard sign war at least in her neighborhood for shore. She's an fifty fifty deer park precinct but helmer has an advantage in that the vote continues to trend more and more blue in that district specifically in those fifty fifty suburban precincts so ultimately. I think dan like you said is somewhere between sixty and seventy percent chance to win herald pie honest so far down the list of potential republican pickups that again i don't see it pending some giant red wave is gonna win all right. Let's take a break when we come back. We'll take a look at contested.

"Virginia there are handful of interesting seats that are being contested in northern virginia. Let's start in loudon house district ten. We've got delegate godiva. She was part of that wave of democrats that swept many seats in two thousand. She knocked off randy menchu back in the two thousand seventeen race this year. She's running against nick clemente. Chaz what do we make of this race for house district ten. I think this is toss up races. Well i think godiva is very much in danger. And i think a nick Is by far the best recruit the house. Gop has for the twenty twenty one cycle. I think he's a stellar candidate. By that is ability to fundraise. He's run a great campaign is a young attractive candidate. And i think you know. There's an argument to be made that he may be even stronger than meant you. You know In terms of look bench. You already tried. Making a comeback did twenty nineteen and yes while twenty nineteen was still blue wave year. I still think that having a fresh face is definitely the best path forward for republicans in this seat and the seat may not even really be that competitive after districting. We'll see what happens with researching that's a total different conversation. It's also a headache. But i think meant as a really good candidate. He's outraged itis throughout the cycle Up until this point now could itis has the money advantage in. This is gonna be a tough race for me to pick. But i think it's a pure toss up plain and simple. This is gonna be nailbiter. Yeah i had a chance to sit down for a couple of drinks with wendy. Godiva says twenty nineteen campaign manager who actually listens to this podcast and he's also worried about when did itis being able to hold on because of all the things you just said jazz well-funded candidate this may be the best recruit. They could have found. Go up against her in this election cycle and as you mentioned randi menchu's popularity was definitely on the way out and this guy seems to be on the way up all right turning our attention to house district twenty eight. This is the seed that used to be held by former speaker bill howell. It was held for a hot minute. By bob thomas who was knocked off in two thousand nineteen by joshua coal so now coal is running for reelection against tara durant. This is also one of the hottest house races across virginia. Chaz what do we make of this race for district. Twenty eight yeah. This is another one of those seats just like the twelfth. In the tossup column gonna have a very hard time picking when it comes to eliminating tossups picking a winner. I think that josh is definitely going to have a closer racing. Didn't twenty nineteen a not only because of different violent. But i would say is win number Margin of victory was arguably inflated given the division between the stafford republicans. You know they just came off of a deeply divided tight contests between bob thomas and paul milky milky beat thomas in the primary..

"Harris was when the candidates who flipped district in twenty seventeen that outran roth north the only other candidate that did that was jennifer carefully so he was he was a stellar candidate in two thousand seventeen all right and i want to say a big reason why that is is because you know he was fresh off tv. We see how people on local tv can really overperform elections. You can look at twenty twenty new mexico senate race with mark. Ron shetty the republican running several points ahead of donald trump. It was a single digit race. While trump was losing new mexico but dole digits. Chaz you get the sense that chris harris has maintained at that moment and from two thousand seventeen. No no absolutely not look. That's kind of what i want to get out here. You know a. Chris is not the he doesn't have a candidate quality he had forty seventeen. It's been four years since he's been on tv and not only that but you know you have. the drinking. driving scandal wasn't arrested or anything like that. But but here's the thing though about that. The bowed campaign or we just recently started running attack ads on him for that. So it's pretty surprise. That took him that long. I want to say it was like the last one or two say decided so they wait until october to do that. I see that as chris hearse achilles heel and they've waited so long tap at it. What's interesting about bringing up. A dui. Chaz is the democrats actually tried to bring up a dui against matt ferris not blacksburg but still out in that direction and when the democrats brought up matt ferris's dui his vote share actually increased above. What was expected and they could trace it to the dui mailers that they sent out. And so i'm wondering. Is there a chance that the u i make her seem like an every man. I don't know about that. I'm not aware of the matt ferris thing you know. I'll say that matt ferris is in a much redder district What year was this. This was about almost ten years ago. Now twenty eleven. Yeah eleven or thirteen eleven to thirteen. Okay let me twenty seven new lines as well so that could be one thing. But i don't think there's really any any argument for that abused for her. I i think It's very unbecoming. And i think the attack ads will be. We'll see how effective they are. But i don't think christmas is gonna run ahead of unless there is a pattern where unlike twenty seventeen many house incumbents running ahead of mcauliffe you know. I think it's more likely that we're going to see the incumbents in the house. Run behind him by few points. I think chris is going to be no exception. That also worth pointing out. This is going back into very ancient history but right before the two thousand election in november of two thousand came out that george w. bush had a drinking driving arrest from his days back. When is drinking days. He had sobered up by the time he ran for president. But it didn't seem to have too much of an influence there so just some ancient history sort of laying the groundwork for how people sometimes react or don't react to those sorts of things. I don't think it's really a accurate comparison Given the amount of time between george bush was running and of the actual dui. Meanwhile this is while christmas was office. So it's it's a very big difference when you are in incumbent and drinking while driving compared to you know something you did many many years ago in your in your youth. So i think there's a big difference there. Okay now turning our attention to northern..

"Was the probably the best thing i could say about it That i made a lot of new friends through it. You know globally yes And nets you always define more friends. And be able.

And we're going to see bruce so it was our bourbon and brewster so i had done a lot of walking so that i can you know. Walk all the distilleries and being shape. And she listened to a lot of bruce music and when she came out of the show she says. I don't know if i become a bruce fan but i have become a fan of seeing him live and he may have spoiled me for any other band. That's actually really will put because you know again like like i said he is not just the performance. It's it's as he has. He sets a bar. Many people can match well. She can't imagine he said old.

"Bruce and i said working class hero and they used it since. And i got into that Then there was nine hundred ninety three or ninety four when he was doing the human touch and lucky town tour I happen to be sitting in front of bruce's parents on ice. Has mother was dancing. The whole time and i was one row in front of them. Father at the time issue rest in peace was you know. just You know is yes though it like you would think and i asked i turn to. His mother said how do i have better than you. And she laughed. And whatever and i left her alone you know get that bruce was pointing to her the whole concert. I was making believe he was pointing at me but i really knew he was. But you know you live. In the moment. I also had the pleasure of i used to have a business before What i'm doing now actually. Now i'm you know.

"Really feel there's anything wrong with that because if if you idolize someone if he's your guy in end is a chance you know you. You don't know this two days before the contract is what are you gonna do way for that to happen. Yes you bite you know if you love mickey mantle. If you love anyone from sports and that there's a chance that anyone from your heroes are gonna show up. You may not be you know you're not it's not a knock on darling love. I read all that stuff. And i didn't feel a knock on her. It was more of someone wanting to see their idol or their guy. And if that's an opportunity where you know. It's a fifty fifty. Sometimes you take that up too because this is you know your guy now. If he doesn't come you know you roll the deicing you lost. Yeah but but it was. It's not a knock on darlene. Love or judge grachev the or anybody else. It's just someone that you know you you who you idolize someone in easy hero and net hero may show up and he has a tendency to do these things and he's affiliated with the album these affiliated with van zandt so the great chance he shows up you buy the tickets when they come out and then later on you find that he's not showing and you sell your tickets you know. Obviously those people border for bruce but listen i. I don't have a problem with that. i knock on darlene. Love no absolutely and i would have. I think you are exactly right. The idea is that's a bonus. I think it's going to be an amazing Darling love was just on With elvis costello on late show and you know and it was amazing and so yeah you want to enjoy that and see.

Eleven o'clock and i can hear every word you're saying and i didn't realize being that lab with you know that just shows you how much you just lose yourself in in the music and in the in the You know the performance that he does i. I really became an obsession. Where i think my uncle who told you introduced me to it right with sorry that he did because to this day at i talk about with him. He never thought they would be creating this monster that he did. Thank you for that. There's so much to do. But i've got to go back to. I graduated high school in nineteen seventy seven. I am a child of top. Forty rock And i love and love berryman love and whenever i tell the story about listening to top forty music always mentioned queen. I mentioned elton. john. And i never i i censor myself and don't mention barry manilow because of the grief right and which is a shame because you know the man has written so many great songs. I listen to this day or and i used to. I sang along with the. You know back then. They were a tracks and I i'm going to include this link in the show notes A guy named mark. Evans who is a comic book writer. He worked for jet kirby for a while. he is. The executive producer of the garfield comics. Talked about going to sea. Barry manilow once in vegas right and he said he was sitting next to to people who had come from alberta canada to celebrate twenty years of marriage Visit system manager for computer firm. She's teaching assistant in the universe and they fell in love to weaken in new england here crates and they said it was playing at just right ambiance. I'm going to quote mark. you know. I sometimes write songs. And if i ever wrote one that changed to live like that. I'm not sure that wouldn't be better than a grammy or a double platinum record or rave review billboard I i appreciate your honesty in sharing with me. Because i have not been that brave at times and so i am so glad you did and because you how i'm always going to be i'm going to say yes barry manilow absolutely so go ahead you were going to be honest. I mean i was like in the beginning. But the you know for me And i mean you know getting into lyrics and poetry. he his lyrics and poetry will vary Stripped down they weren't you know crypt and trying to figure things out. And i you know for thirteen year olds thought to write Obviously is music is. You know phenomenal You know whether you want to agree to it and that The you know there was songs for me like ready to take a chance again and some things that really were beautifully written in says. The same thing about elton john. Some other people right stripped down type of music. And i think that's why when i got into bruce and got really understood his lyrics..

Socialist College Professors Indoctrinate and Coddle Kids

"Now are coddled. They go to college. They were impressionable. They haven't lived in the real world where if you lived in the real world, you'd see your professor named Chad with his long hair spouting off about socialism, playing the guitar in the campus, small eating donkeys and you'd be like dinky Chad. This is the dumbest freaking idea I've ever heard. Can we say that? Sorry, if not just buzz me. Yeah, it's a I want to say something else, but the FCC would find us. It's the stupidest damn idea ever. I lived in the real world. Chad. I've been out playing baseball and having two jobs in some third. Team. You know what I got Friends of mine who didn't do squat. I had a paper route. When I was a kid I used to deliver news days is the statute of limitations open on the tax things Still not because I don't think I paid taxes on that job. I think I made like $100 in three years. But I'm just throwing that out to the IRS may come from me tomorrow, but some of my friends didn't work. They slept till nine o'clock in the morning. Sometimes 11 o'clock I was up at five, putting together the Sunday paper delivering Newsday's working for tips. Therefore, when I got to college, I kind of figured it out that Chaz or Chad, whoever it was teaching socialism, you know, sociology professor on the campus with his long hair singing love songs to students was probably a moron.

Elon Musk's Starlink Could Get a Boost From German Subsidies

"Satellite internet and other kinds of high speed. Internet service can be pricey before you can start using it. there's an upfront costs for. All the special hardware requires now. Germany is working on a program that could pay out a total of one hundred and twenty million dollars to cover those costs for its citizens. Initiative would be a boon for high speed internet providers. Like starlink the satellite internet venture from elon. Musk for more on this. I'm joined now by our germany correspondent boy pinch husky. Hey brian thanks for being here a and thanks for having me okay. So first things first. I wonder if you could start by explaining this problem of internet access in germany for us. Really why are they considering these subsidies in the first place. Yeah you see. It's a very unusual thing. That's going on around here. Because germany is europe's biggest economy and it's a technologically very developed nation a very industrialized nation famous for his various industries. Not least the car industry but however They've been struggling for whatever reason to provide fast internet to the whole of the population. I mean part of the reason is because investment hasn't been done into the actual sort hard infrastructure of of the ground networks required to bring cables to households and because germany kind of missed out on that. Now they're trying to serve leap over that. Phase of of internet access and just provide wireless internet beat from satellites or later from five g or from the wireless technologies and in order to achieve that in order to connect more people to decent internet source. They they are now considering or we'll be going ahead with subsidies for satellite internet and can you sort of connect the dots for us there. Why satellite internet essentially what. They're looking at is. They wanted to subsidize the purchase of the hardware required for households to receive satellite internet. Now the way it works is that satellite internet providers. Chaz starling elon. Musk starling that's one of the sort of bigger players in the market companies. What they do is they. Beam internet from their satellites directly into households in order to receive that you have to have a small satellite dish. You have to have a sort of a power unit and you have to have a kind of a router adapter and all that costs around five hundred euros in germany and the government is basically minded to cover the cost for one of hardware purchase in order to enable everyone who's eligible to get on the internet via satellite

Exit-stage plight: Brexits costs come due

"It's been six weeks since the end of the transition period when brexit formerly fully finally happened. This is an amazing moment for this country. We have our freedom in our hands and these up to us to make the most of it so far. It hasn't been straightforward this week. The european commission listed a series of shortcomings in how britain is following border agreements in northern ireland. Meanwhile amsterdam past london as europe's largest center of share trading. Of course there are other teething problems and Britain's government is projecting confidence about getting past this teething period. They're all some specific issues that relate to what the european union that can be resolved in the next few weeks months as we adjust to a new situation at the same time. Figures released this morning. Show that the country is grappling with a record fall in economic output. Although the deal is done. The transition period over the relationship between britain and europe whether on banking or trade is still far from settled it was inevitable when brexit took effect that some business would move out of london because the business of london in the city has lost. Its automatic right to trade london across europe. Don't pete is economists brexit editor. And because it's lost that it's not recognized by brussels and therefore quite a lot of share trading in european shares and other euro denominated bombs was going to move and it has moved. Its move very fast. Mr trump sit down and what kinds of impacts can we expect from that kind of shift. I think we'll see. More shifting of trade. More fund manages moving capital more trading in europe. Erivatives will move into the european union. That will mean some loss jobs. It will mean. Some banks have to relocate people and activities to continental europe to amsterdam paris and frankfurt. It's not going to be huge in terms of the city. The city is a lube bull financial center. It's still going to be europe's largest financial center but it's going to lose a lot of it's european business and is that a permanent fifty think or could that business return if brussels were to recognize bridgman actual regulation in the city as equivalent to its own then. Some of the business might come back to london. But i think it's unlikely that the eu will do that. I mean many countries in the including brussels want to take back a lot of the trading and euro-denominated stocks chaz and. They didn't really see reason why they should be helpful to city of london.

How Pop-Up Magazine pivoted to (even more) experimental storytelling

"Locum chaz thanks candidates. Great to be here. So i guess it would be wise to start out with the beginning of Beginning of but the pandemic and twenty twenty and Pop up magazines pivot strategy I know at first you turn to video. Which wasn't typically something that pop up magazine did around its events You weren't recording them. You weren't sharing them in that medium but how was it you know. Moving to video and I guess you're for your first venture was shown on youtube. Live back in Does it like late summer. Yeah how how is that process. Well you're exactly right. It's sort of where we where we entered. Twenty twenty is a put together live magazine shows and toward them around the country and we would sell thousands of tickets and fill up a crowded opera house or lincoln center with fans and we would Perform a magazine live on stage writers and filmmakers illustrators and photographers radio people would narrate their stories live to an audience and we would accompany that with live music and with beautiful artwork and film and photography animation on a screen so all of that was shut down in. We finished our last national tour in february of two thousand twenty and The pandemic shutdown theaters in march. So we had been planning on going on tour with our spring show in may but we had to quickly change plans for that. And so we retooled the our spring show and built it instead as as a youtube premiere streaming show and It was sort of one example among many that that of things we did as an organization in twenty twenty in response to the pandemic. I mean at as you said at the opening remarks for a company that makes live events. The pandemic has been at a very direct a negative impact on our business the silver lining for us about twenty twenty in the pandemic is. It was an opportunity for us to be very experimental experiment with storytelling in different formats storytelling in different contacts. And most importantly a twenty twenty one year that kind of gave us permission to get closer to our audience in a variety of ways so I guess the new audience approach in opening up to the geography of of the internet. As you as you mentioned that would be the Video initiative that you that you took on Correct yes so. How did that Perform for you like how was being Youtube lives something that helped drive new audiences as mentioned here. I mean so. The the first the first video experiment we did was back in may and we elected to make it free to our fans through the generous support of google who sponsored the show and what it allowed us to do is to take what was take our spring tour. Our may tour where we were planning to sell tens of thousands of tickets and it allowed us instead to bring that show to millions of people and so we saw an expansion of the number of people we could touch from tens of thousands of people to millions of people and that was very exciting for us.

Courtney Act on How Drag Helped Her Find Her Trans Identity

"Perhaps courtney was almost a performance thing at the beginning of your career but now it's sort of like why would it be performance because she is also you. Yeah i guess it's that thing where with lots of labels and things. These days which i personally have found very helpful in understanding who i am but i think now that i've understood. I'm not completely. But i've i've got the large chunks. That pestered me for most of my teens and twenties out of the way i just kind of feel like me and so i think that's something beyond the physical packaging and the superficial decoration of that. Which is just like the core essence of who i am and and how my sexuality and my gender and my identity overnight to that which i feel really comfortable about but i think like drag was assigned post that the fact that i was drawn to drag the fact that i did drag in a world where it certainly wasn't a normal thing Was always sort of like a signposted. Sort of the bigger question about my identity and it's always been like this flag that has drawn attention to the concepts of gender and identity and will the words the words around have become. They've always been there. They've sort of been our fingertips for the past five years in a way that they just weren't before right. Yeah it's so weird. How language can empower and labels can empower someone. Because in the beginning. I was a boy who did drag and there's is nothing funny going on. It was just a costume like a police. Van would put on a police uniform and go to work mine. Was this more. Glamorous and the only other option at that time was to be trans. And i didn't identify with that because i think it was filled like a lot of people with a lot of i had a lot of internalized transphobia. I think In my early days. Because i had received a lease negative images and messages. Just as i had internalized homophobia and themm phobia arab. You know all of these sorts of things these messages that we with And then over. The years is the language has developed as the stories have felt in pop culture with Trans people the transit civility has probably been one of the biggest things has allowed me to accept who i am although i identifies trans. It created a space where i was able to actually ask myself those questions and answer them. Honestly because i was seeing amazing transplant and transparent in pop culture like laverne cox janet mock and angelica ross and chaz bono and jenny boylan and capable in saint louis books and things i'd read and i was like oh well. Being transparent is valid in beautiful wonderful. And i was no longer scared of the idea of being a transparent and so then i was able to actually look at it. I was like oh actually i think i secretly thought that i was transfer very longtime because those only two options and i didn't feel like i was a man so therefore i must be a woman and actually as it turns out. I don't feel like that. I just feel like me.

"chaz" Discussed on Pints and Propaganda

"And i think with some more organization with a more clear cut defined goal this would have been a more successful occupation. Yeah i feel very strongly. However that's completely writing-off is sort of a dangerous thing for the left in that we have a clear cut roadmap that was done by actual direct action to gain some actual power because occupying that territory did give them a considerable amount of leverage and power. They just didn't use it. And i think that you're right in its criticism of it being short sighted and it not taking into account the sort of repercussions or the understanding of what they should have been doing. I think you are right in that criticism. I am concerned. However not from what i've seen from you but more so what i've seen from marxist leninist as a whole writing off the chaz as a tantrum or something akin to just sort of ineffectual protests or direct action. Because in all honesty. It wasn't ineffectual. They were able to use the polices weaknesses them and they were able to easily occupy territory in a way. Where realistically speaking if a if you view the people who created the chaz as sort of shortsighted hippie idiots. Don't know what they're doing the fact that they were able to do that shows you that with some organization at people who are methodical and know what they're doing should be able to do this even easier. Yeah so my concern again comes back to the idea of writing this protests off as a whole where i don't wanna is say that they did nothing wrong but i also don't want to say they did nothing rights go ahead. Yeah sexy sam. I hear what you're saying ultimately about just People who believe that they can learn nothing from the existence of the chop or the chas. Or but yeah i have to say. That's i agree with you there. In in that regard that it really is inspirational especially taking a look at what was able to be accomplished that they were able to seize this territory for you know a not insignificant amount of time. You're right three three weeks thereabouts weeks whenever it was which which is still better than zero and ultimately I'm glad you. I'm glad you see by my perspective that it could have benefited a lot from from a little bit organization. There are I am glad you see my perspective because my concern going into this is that oh no no i i do have i do have a list of Of chaz is demand here Posted by free capitol hill the user on a medium dot com It's it's a little bit lengthy. But i'll i'll pull out some excerpts about that that i thought were interesting includes not just reform reform ideas for Just law enforcement and judicial system but also economic and and medical related as well. Yeah you know so It starts out the saying The seattle police department and attached court system are beyond reform. We do not request reform. We demand abolition. We demand that the seattle council and the mayor de fund and abolish the seattle police again. Why defunding abolished into say abolish. Like no i think that was a dumb free turn of phrase because i'm down for abolishing the police and and the attached criminal justice apparatus. This means a one hundred percent of funding including existing. Pensions for seattle police. At an equal level of priority we also demand that the city disallow the operations of ice in the city of seattle. See i mean. My opinion like abolishing the police department You know in my opinion is a little bit pie in the sky as far as far as a request. Especially when it's like okay Abolish the police. So so that way we can do more of the chaz and you know like my stance has always and will always be. Don't come to the table with the compromise. Yes so i agree. A hundred percent with the stands of coming to a list of demands of we want you to abolish the police and Stop ice from operating within city limits because then from there we can compromise to drastically defunding the police if we come with drastically defined the police will get okay. Maybe we can give you More training program within the police where we increase their funding their their sensitivity. You we'll get the lady who wrote white fragility to educate all the police. But so i my stance has is always you have to come with the pie in the sky thing and negotiate from there. I mean i. I understand completely where you're coming from. But my my counter to that is you can't you can't just like Just come right out of the gate with the most ridiculous requests because at that point the powers that be will interpret that as you not taking this seriously and if you're not taking it seriously why should they and ultimately if like they're gonna see what you're doing as well so in that respect i think i think that disallow you might. You can call me a lip. That's fine you've you've done it before but disallow. The operations of ice in the city of seattle is is is a perfectly acceptable Demand to have in that respect especially if includes to fund the police. You know of the police. You know timmy. Just strikes me as farfetched and goes to show. Okay go ahead say something. You're guilty guilty. You know it's. I thought it was a read. A red Capitalists you know it's red.

"chaz" Discussed on Pints and Propaganda

"In the in the city which i mean and so and so The capitol hill neighborhood Various members took it upon themselves to then essentially occupy the The east precinct of capitol hill and rename it. The seattle peoples department as it were and then as a result the the chas was essentially born Where it was basically as what is described autonomous zone. Yeah eventually you know well. I disagree with that label and they did eventually as well because it wasn't not an autonomous zone. Its borders were described as poorest so you know people are able to get in and out very easily. Yeah and what didn't make it. Autonomous was like you know there wasn't a sustainable food source there or any food sustainable food sources you know. People had to go outside in order to get resources and bring it back to the to the chaz or the chop You know eventually eventually. The chaz came to a democratic consensus and realize that calling themselves. The chas the autonomous zone was sort of folly and not applicable so misnomer. Yeah yeah and they. They renamed themselves to the chop standing for the Capitol hill occupied protests. Then they disagreed with that again and Because they they thought they thought the word occupied was Was you know. Sent the wrong message considering You know the united states is an occupied territory of land so they renamed it to the capitol hill organized protest as a result and in that respect it really reminiscent to that one tweet. I saw where it was. It said what people think. Anarchists are like. Let's let's burn down some some buildings and topple the capitalist government you guys and then and then what anarchists are like in real life After our are meeting we finally come to the conclusion on appropriate. Uses of the word. You guys you know so but you know i. Of course but my ultimate contention with with the term. Chaz is you know for its merits it had it was able to bring community got together. It was able to utilize direct action in that community in the form of community gardens. First-aid tents Medics and food vendors and food co-ops and whatnot which you know typically Were were supplied from outside. You know as discussed outside sources and were willing to Provide food for free. They also had numerous education seminars and also had various instructional classes on like you know racial sensitivity and various other things Instructing people on what police brutality is and what it looks like and so on and so forth to his credit. Though you know like once again we gotta bring up the history. The chaz occurred specifically because the police decided to evacuate that precinct and ultimately was only able to be established. In that specific instance there were numerous quote unquote on thomas zones that popped up during the time of the chaz especially in places like philadelphia and washington dc. But of course those kind of fizzled out and didn't last for longer than a day or two. You know yeah. In addition the chas the the number one problem. I've heard what the chaz on all camps was. Just it's lack of leadership of centralized leadership which resulted in people kind of doing their own thing and lots of conflicting reports coming out of the chaz as a result of it. You know from people saying no. This isn't this isn't us trying to establish our own autonomous zone this is just an occupy an occupied protests similar to occupy wall street. All the way to people saying no we are literally establishing our own country. Here are our our website. Says you are now leaving the usa And going into the into the capitol hill autonomous known. You know. that's that's what that's the message we want to get across but But i've been talking for a while. I dunno lira. You wanna you wanna hear about any of my points. Yeah so i guess my rebuttal would be that my defensive. The chaz isn't that they did no wrong. Because i do think that it could have been better. It could have been smarter but it was in a very broad sense. A opportunistic occupation. I mean i guess like they disagree with the title or overall agreed with title. But i do think it does offer us a roadmap because despite its shortcomings they were able to occupy territory for two weeks while surrounded and not like you said not being fully autonomous where they could grow their own food had their own water supplies and all that and had all the proper infrastructure place they were able to occupy territory that was controlled by a totalitarian state or two weeks. So i my concern. I've seen with a lot of criticism coming towards Chop or the chaz or whatever you wanna call it my concern. I've seen with a lot of the criticism is that we are negating what we can learn from this occupation and one of the things i think we can learn is that we can take over areas relatively easily with very little amounts of people and to bring that into something a little more recent the lapd for example put out a statement saying taking care of a ten thousand person. Protest is easy for them but ten one thousand person protests would cripple them so getting them to come out and react is quite easy it also leaves their home base pretty defenceless. Yeah we thought we should all mention that beforehand is well. this is this is purely as speculation. it is not not instruction to attack. We're roy smasher but this is this is some some people might think you're cool but definitely definitely not we would we would shake our fingers sternly at you you know i i I guess my stance against criticizing them too heavily. I'm not saying. They are above criticism that they did nothing wrong. My caution for being too overly harsh on it. Because i've seen a lot of marsa slenderness a write off this movement entirely. We saw what worked what didn't work. The actual initial moments worked very well. The sustained usage did not. And i think we've provided ourselves a roadmap of what doesn't work and what does so we know what a good initial take over if we were to try and replicate this to be something a little bit more effective maybe try and create something. A little bit more autonomous something to meet demands for leftist sort of Agendas that we want or specific policies. That i think we could fight within the system or something else. We.

My friend the next day always feel that good. This morning I had some cafe patrol last night and he said how many and I said two and a half shots. And went, oh, that's and I said well five technically to with double. I'm enjoying the hall. I know it was like. Over, do it.

It's not something that I've written but you jogged my memory now is a good habit is. When you get out of bed in the morning I, really truly believe that how you start your day will massively impact the rest of your day and I know that that's this very common Skill. If you make the bed those who make the bed, we'll have a more productive day on. It's something that I really try and disciplined myself in the moment I wake up I'll wake up and I'll stay on instagram and go through my DM's which for me is compartmentalized as an hour. Before out bed so then I have an hour after that and I make empty the dishwasher maybe claim a kitchen before dressed might do a little bit of a workout with something and then I, started my day right now what that does is it puts me on a really Positive, productive mental state of mind if I don't do one of those if I lie in bed if I mess Abou-. Than sometimes my diet can unravel and then it got straits with myself, and then I know that I I know that I can stop being mean and it's just not worth it. So feel good habit number wall I think his start your day rhines and from the moment you get up start doing nice things.

"It's really interesting with K pop. I think they have more direct control. They like participate in like what a lot of their favorite artist do. However the thing about music, specifically like K. pop obviously pulls from like hip hop and RB. Also like in New Jack, swing which I think boy events like molly was saying I'm done historically. Only a few artists have actually said anything about that borrowing. And some of them said so. It seems like probably because they had some sort of fan pressure to do so like I know beach us. Third comment on on black ice matter like included the Hashtag and said that they didn't condone violence, but in artists like Seattle from twenty one so like a previous generation of K pop. Specifically mentioned that a lot of her music and a lot of K pop comes from black music like like all popular music. I also want to qualify that while we're talking about all the wonderful things that k pop fans have done and sort of vocalized their support, a black lives matter some of it is really specific to. The success of the artist as well like the day after A. Destroyed this really ridiculous Dallas up I read about a new group called secret number where one of the members had her instagram and soundcloud take it down because she posted about black lives, matter on her instagram story and the belief. There is because it was a new group. They didn't have the sort of Phantom. That could support a political statement. Curious to about the labels, whether the labels are sanctioning this because we're seeing kind of go into directions with companies where it's like half of them are like we have to put out a statement. You know sort of corporate pro black lives matter statement, and then you have things like you know starbucks a couple days ago. Being like nobody can wear any black lives matter gear whatsoever, so I was a little surprised that K pop, which is not necessarily you know is known for like the labels having such a tight hold on the earnest and sort of controlling their images. But, they would let them. Express a support for black lives matter 'cause it could be divisive to fans. Yeah I would say. It's also interesting in the case of bt. Estimate used as example because I think that's who most people are must. In America. A week or so before all this happened sugar, one of the rappers in be. Released a song that used a Jones sample. Followed, did you see this? And and that became a really big contentious divisive thing within that army, because some people were like? How does sugar not know about the Jonestown massacre that killed hundreds of of black people. Let's clarify that its Jim. Jones, cult leader, not the rapper. Yeah that that'd be. That'd be helpful. Those my first thought was I was like Oh. He's sample. Jim Jones like from dip side. Knows not that rain and that was that was interesting to follow, because it did seem like there was division within bt SS army, which kind of speaks to. What only about this not capable of being this sort of monolithic thing, 'cause you'd have like fans of color saying. How did he not know this? Or why didn't anybody do the bare minimum research to figure out where the sample came from? And then some stands are like, but didn't know like this is not like his knowledge base, and then other fans are saying. How could you even question his artistry like out? How dare your fake fan to even making any sort of criticism? And then it seems as though like the most critical are probably the most vocal, or at least they won out because within a week. Release the statement that gets disseminated and translated because K. pop is global. Essentially saying they didn't know the origins of the sample and they're sorry. And then, of course, there's also like the timing of that. Incident I. DON'T WANNA. Put my tin hat on by like. This is the place to put your not. Allowed inside here. Great will it seems like that statement came out I. Believe on May thirty first rates again was the day that the Dallas APP came up, so it's very. It very much seems like okay now. We're going to start actively doing something about this around the time that K pop fans have taken it upon themselves to do stuff. This is slightly parallel to that but I want your opinion as a scholar on boy bands. On your honest opinion and this is not very optimistic of me. But like how much artistic control any K pop artists actually have over their music. Yeah, that's an interesting question because I like to be completely honest. I think that is obscured and I think it's like. Purposefully obscured. Though like I just watched bts's Docu series on their social media APP Weavers, and it shows them writing their solo songs like together, but also it seems to be their brainchild. But Yeah I. It's really like that's. That's so take. For good reason I think and that's not limited to k pop of Wesley now. It's interesting to see the stars in America. Who Do have enough control? To sort of make the statements, themselves I've just been surprised by. POPs fandom like rushing in to be part of this because it does feel like the good cyberpunk universe where it's like. Writing Yeah, we're using idolization for something. Yeah like this is when when I reach out to you Maria I was trying to find this tweet that I remember seeing. And I, I did find what I was thinking of, and it had come out just days like less than a week before the protests really started after George George foists murderer. And, it was it was. It was actually about the barbs. I thought that it was about K. pop. The barbs and it was. It came from at Marxist. Wink If we checked jeff basis into saying something negative about Nikki massage the barbs would have the revolution done by at least October. This is from May, twenty four, th, yeah, and then and then down the thread. There are a lot of responses that. That we're both like. Were just like no like fat like Imagine Phantom Twitter. Carrying about anything outside of their faves, like a lot of skepticism and some people who are like Oh yeah like they are a force to be reckoned with like you know, or it's close. It's happening soon like I. Feel like people say that they send something in the water that like stand him twit and stand him twitter in general. Was Getting organized to do this sort of thing. Did you sense that at all before? All of this really started happening, yeah? It's. Funny because I think maybe I've just like been in it for so long that my gut reaction is like this is just classic marginalization of like pop fans, and how dare they because I remember like even five years ago. There is like a one direction mean construction that was I joined twitter, because a one direction, and now I'm a communist or like a now. Dedicated to abolishing ice or something so there definitely like factions within like Stan armies have always been like dedicated. radicalized. and. That pops up that crops up in different ways I think this feels different, just because it is something that. I? It seems like more people are becoming radicalized, and of course that is mirrored in K pop. Stand Him specifically I..

"The police in a very unlikely, but welcome turn of events, so stay tuned for that. Welcome back to unite call. We are now joined by Maria Sherman. She's a senior writer at Jazz Abell and author of the new book larger than life, a history of boy bands from new kids on the block to be s, and she's here to talk to us about the recent radicalization of Stan Twitter, particularly K pop stand twitter which I think has been like one of the most interesting sub stories of the recent of black lives matter movement the recent wave of black lives matter movements that have been happening. So yeah, welcome to the show and I'm so glad to have you here. Yeah, thanks so much for having me I'm excited to talk about my favorite subjects, but also one that scares me a little bit. I hope I do K pop fans proud today. Yeah I, think that. We were talking a little before we recorded. It's like such A. It's such a vast universe. The K pop stan army thing and it's something that like I think up until a couple of weeks ago. You would just be you know browsing twitter usually twitter. And other social media platforms as well, but twitter is one. I'm at least most. Like most have most experienced with this with and. You would just be like Iran's threat or looking at the responses in and occasionally there would be a zillion gifts of various k pop stars, doing choreography and it Kinda just it almost feels like kind of just like a an a nonsense bombing in. In that context especially if you don't. Really know any stanmore thing if you just happened into it, it's like if you don't know the lingo. It yeah a little impenetrable, yeah! And they're so many k pop groups, so it's like it's not. It can appear monolithic from the outside, but there are all these factions and lake I started seeing the little. subscript seven. People's names I realized that that was. That's a bts thing. Yeah seven years. Yes, yeah, yeah, so it's just been like kind of interesting to see this thing that's been a feature of twitter for a long time. Now become politicized in a more mainstream way. Yeah, I'm happy you qualify that as a mainstream wakes, I think for some reason, even though this has been like nothing, but pretty positive press for K pop stands in general that they have. Taken, an active participatory role in in black lives matter. Is that they think that they've been seen as just sort of like another hysterical fan army as opposed to like a group of very organized. Organized stance you often have political opinions and participate in charity and activism and everything, but this did feel different, because it's felt like bigger than before Stan armies that would normally be competitive with one another. We're coming together, which is like shocking? Like, it felt like they put the competition aside for for the good of the world. Which is grown? Can you explain what they've been doing? With just like bombarding the fan cams to people and on Hashtags Yeah So the reason we're talking about. The today is at the end of May. Dallas Police Department launch this APP where they asked civilians essentially to share and I think the quote was illegal activity at protests and K pop stands. I know in particular a lot of like there's Dan Dumb I guess army, Saul this and we're like no. Let's bombard this fan cams and crashed the APP. And before it even crashed, which was very quickly within a couple hours. Very. The also. The went on the apple APP store and gave the APP a one star rating, so it's like completely devastated. Can't find this, but if you did, you would just see like really beautiful images of like John. Like. And then like the following day, Grand Rapids Police Department to the same thing. I'm not really sure why, if anybody WHO's online? They probably would have noticed that they were going to overwhelm their APP as well and it crashed and then. Simultaneously, Wayne. Racist Hashtag started cropping up like white lives matter white out Wednesday in response to blackout Tuesday. That sort of stuff started happening. Fans did the same thing. They started blasting fan camps and memes. What's the Fan Cam? Yes. I realize I've probably probably should've started there. Are A fan Cam. As an Internet, Niilo Gypsum I think now is just sort of like a video of the celebrity. You like him a lot. Now referred to like I just really like sexy videos of Timothy Shallow me, which is not their original definition in the purest. It's like a live performance or like an award show reaction where a fan has filmed one member for the entirety of the performance, so even when they're not dancing or singing or rapping, you're still watching your favorite or your bias as they're called in pop right and they're like so popular that even Korean television networks will film their own high versions of this put them on Youtube and they'll get like tens of millions of views. It's really fascinating fascinating San Behavior. I did not know that that's what a fan cam was. Because I thought it was just like I didn't know. I was called a cam because it just felt like a fan. Edit sure yeah, but that's so interesting that it's just like like if you have a multi Cambrai cast of a concert. Yes, there's going to be one. That's on your FAV-. Yeah I wanted to ask I mean. I, think this is such an interesting development. But specifically, K pop has had a lot of issues with racists so I was totally a little surprised by this because I, didn't think of K pop as being sort of like the most. Progressive or inclusive, necessarily fandom. A lot of pop stars have gotten in trouble for doing. Racist stuff for being ignorant about. Socks, black lives matter so I'm curious. What you, what do you think? This says about the Cape Fandom I was just going to add. There's also like in addition to that and into the behavior of Specific Cape Pop stars. There's also been a lot of writing I. Think about how indebted especially I don't think that it's always been quite as much as it is. Now I think this has been gradual over the years. How Indebted K! Pop Music itself has been to black music to hip hop into rb. Bands you know. The mold of new edition. So I. think that it's just like part of the DNA of boy bands, and it's interesting to see it sort of so divorced from the source material like it is in Cape Hop where some of it is like. You know. In interpreting like the in sink, assimilation of black culture, it's like right. Several levels removed from the original thing. But. It's obviously still still there and yeah. I know there's been. Issues with some of the individuals stars. Do you have any K pop bands responded to this the K pop stands or doing this in America. It's it's interesting because everything is sort of specific to the kind of artist and what I mean by. That is after all the started happening you get. Company big hit donating one million dollars to black lives matter, but that happens two weeks, or so, or maybe like a week and a half after k pop stands are already doing all of this online activism, so it's kind of like the artist is subject to whatever the political position as of their Stan Army, because obviously they benefit. From them as consumers, so they want to sort of reflect their interest to continue to have their loyalty and support..

"Angeles there was. A movement in solidarity with that you know and the highway patrol showed up immediately with like a million cars and. Just been sitting outside these houses where people are now occupying peacefully empty houses owned by the city. Just you see like when they really perceive something to be a threat to the to the order into property. They are not shy about coming in to fuck it up. Yeah, yeah. I mean like I. Just wanted to go back to the temporary. For second 'cause I like I, it's like. It's like very readily available and still highly. Highly influential and a ton of pedophilia advocacy is woven into it in who weird yeah, and it's like a thing that a lot of people kind of turn a blind eye to as well like they kind of Cherry. Pick from it, which I don't think is like impossible to do like there's some kind of. Like very interesting ideas in it, but a lot of them are kind of in his context used to be like yes, experiment like no laws like we can fuck kids like that's sort of the. has this very kind of peculiar? Angle to it that I think could easily be taken out of it but I. Think I think it's just something to keep an eye on that the people who lake. Are Often Katie, and for this sort of culture jamming activity for. You know like the creating these undefined spaces where anything can happen. When it comes from a certain kind of person, it can start to sound. Like A and I don't want to over use this word, but like it can sound like that sounds like the environment of like Oh. There are no rules I can do whatever I want, and there were cases of like sexual violence and stuff that some of the occupy sites and stuff like that that you know so. That's just something fresher I think that's also just a house of all. Communist Kodaly and it's a hazard of being in the world also I just think there's still so. So it comes as more of a shock when it when it happens in the world. That's supposed to be the Utopian World I. think There's a lot of you know failed commune's and utopias that you can look to and I don't think that the fact that they failed me. You shouldn't take lessons from that exactly. Yeah I, think, I, think that's the rate like it's very easy to over romanticize this stuff especially as it's happening right now, and everybody's getting their Chaz jokes off, but like. There's there's value in this kind of thing, and it can also go sideways like these are all human beings who are doing this stuff. This isn't the and it's an imperfect process, and that's the whole point of it. It's an attempt to rethink. How society could work at it, and so like there is a huge huge area where people can fuck up. And and you know unwise decisions can be made and things to put people in danger like that can all happen. So I think that's important to keep in mind as this sort of unfold, and by the time this episode comes out who knows what will be happening. I've been trying to stay like as up to date as possible before we recorded just so that like. Hopefully like nothing horrible happens on Capitol Hill. And I. Don't mean to Laugh Weinstein that I truly mean that I wish them the best. I hope that the experiment goes well, and everybody learns from it, but like who knows. Who What's going to happen? So you're saying? We're going to build a new society at sea. On, top of all the confederate monuments that have that have been gathering at the bottom of the ocean that yeah I I think this stuff is all super interesting to look into. Both because of the real political power that can have in certain cases like especially in the cases in France. And like the overlap that it has with rave culture and with like. Kind of party, culture and counterculture, and all of that Lake that I've been thinking so much about the key raves. Because I've seen so many things since the protests started, that gave me Kate Cave. Vibes and a great way. The particularly the Detroit protests. Like Playing incredible house music during the protests, my favorite. Thing about that was people were posting. Lake Detroit is the Hall of Techno, and all these people under the posted like that's not techno house. But yeah, that stuff is great. He GonNa Fuck Up. And just because people are going to fuck up doesn't mean that these things aren't valuable to try and I also as long and I keep watching it for this reason also like. Like I would hope that the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. Continues to keep black lives matter at the center of its purpose because it is such A. White. It's kind of I. Mean comparatively There's a lot of white people there and a lot of white people who are kind of loudest about what's going on there and so I would really hope that they stay on message there. That's my opinion from all the way down here in Los Angeles. Seattle doesn't give a fuck about what Los Angeles thinks. Hey you. You Count as Seattle I'm I claim, SEATTLE ACCLAIM Iowa. City Yeah Yeah, so I just thought that was an interesting thing to look into and I I have a feeling. I saw some stuff happening in Portland. It's I. Don't think it's a coincidence that it's been. Seattle and Portland but I think. There's going to be more of this and I. Keep picturing it as like one of the sonic. The hedgehog zones because those are all called Lake. The casinos stuff like that so I. Keep imagining that. I have a proposition for Los Angeles. I think we should take over the Britney spears. The zone museum and make that zone zone. Somebody tat like that one of the first big things to get tagged i. feel like Oh so good. I drove pasta to see if it was still there, but it's not many tags smash white supremacy on the Brittany. Spears Rate Pink Wall of the Brittany Spears pop up. It was pretty incredible even when there is reviewing it. It, before in the before times I thought like this was like an empty kmart and I was like this could so easily be turned into housing..

We took our whole lock in late staff. and we would just cook and chef things and read on. Did everything my rely on it was. Pretty short ten experience as I was like seventeen at the time. yes, very pulled on Bravo. blackhawks model from the police Thank you for the call. We had put a request for calls on our twitter at night. Call Pod to talk about autonomous zones, because as you may have seen in the news this week. Seattle now has an autonomous zone called the Capitol Hill a ton of sewn or the Chaz also known as Free Capitol Hill, which came together on June ninth, basically started to come together. When the Seattle, Police Department seeded several blocks around the east precinct police station and in Seattle and the Capitol Hill neighborhood. A neighborhood I used to live very close to an very familiar with so this is all been kind of like I've been very glued to this this week. but this is this is. A phenomenon and there's been a long tradition of autonomous zones and things like autonomous zones that have gone on for years and I got really into looking into them and deep diving on. What an ton of zone is and what an autonomous zone does, and just like all the off shoots of things that come out of the culture of autonomous zones, so just wanted to chat about that today. Yeah so I. There's there are a lot of things that are kind of can be seen as. As precursors to what we now. Is, The kind of modern contemporary autonomous out I think the Paris Communist, probably like the first example of like a modern. Autonomous Zone, which was a Marxist commun-. was formed for about two months in Paris in eighteen, seventy one and there's actually a long French tradition of these sorts of. Basically encampments on land as a as a form of resistance to law enforcement or the government. And I in France. They're called Zia Dis days. Zone the phones were? The most famous is still running now. It's the. Of, the Notre Dame de Londe, where there's been an airport that his been planned to be built. Now for multiple decades and commune basically came together of people who had been displaced from the rural communities and farmland in the area. And they basically came together to form this network of A. kind of sites across this very very large swath of land in the region of France. and they have resisted multiple attempts at addiction one as recently as twenty eighteen, and are still there. Are I think now working on having their Having having their sights legalized so that kind of thing that can happen with some of these more long-term autonomous zones free. Christina in Copenhagen is like another. Another example of that, which is now of really, I think a lot of people who have observed it have seen it as more of like a kind of tourist trap now than an actual. Political site, but it's still is something that is recognized by the Danish government as like being outside of. The country so I think American people are probably most familiar with this sort of thing happening with the occupy movement and twenty ten mostly and Coty Park in New York and these are all been temporary. Sites and like extended extended protests temporary sites, and I think the thing that I find kind of. I, think doesn't get across a lot with these sorts of things is that? Like a lot of people who are kind of making fun of the Chaz now are saying like. Oh, so what's going to happen when you you guys have to like? Get plumbing, or like you know you talking about infrastructure and long-term planning for the sort of thing and a lot of the value I think in setting up something like free Capitol Hill is that it's temporary like it is a. is a temporary utopia basically, and I think that's been a lot of the theory around. This sort of action has been an opportunity, not intended to be long-term. You're not setting up a new society. You're temporarily suspending society in order to create an environment for new ideas and new ways of doing things which I think you've seen happening. If you've been following the stuff that's been happening on Capitol Hill. That's been. That's been going on already. They've they've they've had some law enforcement issues and they had to figure out how to get people to you know. Adhere to the community. A. Loosely defined that of community guidelines. And it's just the sort of site for experimentation which okay, but I wanNA remake society. Why can't he makes was lying Sarah Plenty of places where they've done long-term. remaking. The that and Francis as you. Keep saying that. That's a great example of of a really long term project that is now. Kind of after multiple failures to overthrow. It is like kind of having legitimacy as like a long term occupation. Is this lake when libertarian start militias but like for good? Yeah kind of I mean like like listen. There's something like this right wing thing- recently were. There is like you know. Kind of. A weapon stockpile were in in the Pacific northwest also where it seems like all of this stuff happens always northwest free Cascadia A. Like. They've been yeah. That's like I don't know so much about the more libertarian end of it. I think that a lot of these kind of anarchists. Kind of these these movements that have more of an anarchist skew to them or Marxist. Skewed of them are really more about like. Not like basically the absence of society, rather than presence of like a militarization or presence of guns. There was a lot of rumors going around in the of like people you know they're being warlords and it being like Mad Max, but I think that when you look at people who are actually there on the ground, it's been mostly just. Like screening of the thirteenth do Vernay documentary and like? You know for me. Food co-ops and stuff like that. It's just been about like meeting. People's basic needs, so it's college. College. It's like a it's like a functional piece of performance are right like yeah. I in this context and the context of something, and we'll see what long-term happens with the Chas I mean the other misunderstanding about it right now is that it's like a hostile takeover of.

Chad H. discusses his journey with alcoholism in the family and AA

"For me You know like a lot of people you know Agassi could start with my sort of family history. Or you know it's all over my family. you've not had a you know grandfather die from it and its forties Cousins both my parents are alcoholics. In so you know for me personally. I believe that's genetic thing in my brain and and I I got you know but grew up in a fairly normal home may mean the one thing about both my parents. Being alcoholics is that They were actually. They were sober and they were going to meetings so I knew about a pretty young. You know I I'd go to the meetings once in a while with them and I when I was a young kid I didn't really understand it. I just knew that we'd go to the smoke filled rooms and eat sugar sugarcubes in the back of the room. But I didn't really know what it was but you know as far as grown up in the household. I mean no no. It's nothing crazy. I mean we always had what we needed. You know. We're kind of a lower middle income family but everything was good sell felt loved felt. You know nothing crazy One thing I was always kind of nervous kind of a worrier type kid high anxiety. I guess you could say coupled along the line to with a perfectionist. You know I was always one of those kids that you know. I wasn't the best or the first right away. I would be a screw it you know. I don't want nothing to do with it but again nothing. Nothing crazy in the household but You know when I was seventeen years old which can be of late for some people but I got drunk for the first time you know up to that point. I hadn't really had the opportunities to to drink alcohol or be around it And I remember I remember it like it was yesterday because it had such a profound effect on the When I was new a there used to be a gentleman that I always I kinda stole it from but he always used to talk about You know the first time that he had you know he loves love. Everone pizza but he couldn't remember a good point. Yeah we love chocolate ice cream. You know all these types of things but I can tell you almost. Yeah it's crazy right because it is such a profound effect you know so I remember. I was at a lake cabin with a couple of guys in Minnesota and we were drinking Bush light pounders big talk sixteen ounce cans and whiskey and I remember when I got enough in me to achieve that affect. I remember thinking. Wow this I like this. This is good you know and I needed to develop that phenomenon of craving right off the bat you know I'd never drank a and it was like that first time I couldn't get drunken. I mean I was doing shots at Akilah. I mean that just instantly the physical part just took over right off the bat blackout had probably the worst hangover had. But I love that. You know I'm more of a binge drinker you know I. I did that for the next five years. You know. I'm not a guy that could drink every day Get really hammered. Often run in. Maybe sober a couple of days on it once. I flipped that switch. You know I was gone you know and I never meant to do it. You know it was never like I'm GonNa go out and get drunk. It's like let's go have a couple of beers and just that certain point you know So I did that for age. Seventeen to twenty two now. I mentioned before that I was around a so I knew a little bit about it and I don't really know what happened like I'm one of those people that I didn't have any real external consequences. I didn't get in trouble nine. Everyone to drunk a lot. I got lucky I was in a smaller town. Fifty thousand people. So you know it wasn't like I was getting on ways going seventy miles an hour so but I would say the last couple of times. Well maybe the last few months I was drinking I knew there was off. I just knew I'm like I didn't drink like other people And I think that's probably where I'll calix drink with other alcoholics. Who the heck wants to be around some guy that you know going home at nine after three you know. I didn't relate to guys like that but maybe the second to last time I drank promise myself was gonna try not to drive anymore And I ended up driving in a blackout in. It was just kind of a combination that you know what I need to look at this. There's a problem here and I think it also helped that I was around some eight members. My Dad was a member I would go. He had a little store in my hometown. And see him in there. These guys in there hanging out and I knew they weren't drinkers you now and they were to smile in and they had this little gleam and they go through in Chad. Know that that kind of thing you know when you're still drinking like a you know that guy you know but I respect it and I don't know I just said you know what I probably need to go. There was this Tuesday night meeting that I knew about. I probably should go to that. I'm like I. I'm drinking way too much and I don't I don't have an answer. Why that is Surrenders a funny thing you know I just something clicked for me. I can't explain it in like from the moment. I made that decision that I needed to be at that meeting. It was removed from like. I didn't really think about it after that. You know and I don't know if that was a combination of that. I was still pretty young. I hadn't drank like for twenty years but it wasn't that big a deal for me. You know I I went in. I need to be here. I accepted that particular meeting of come to find out now is pretty unique. And I've been to a lot of meeting sense They kept it very simple. You know the format and it's still the same today. The format was what we used to be like. What happened what we like now. There wasn't a topic they would just call on members of the group that would come up and share And their whole idea was that it wasn't about it was more about. They would do that. So that would the new guy would come in and hopefully relate and then they could say man. I'm struggling to. What did you guys do and hopefully bring them along the path It wasn't about necessarily the new person needed to share its author. Chaz it was. Hey they're struggling. Here's what we do. So they basically said get home group that meets at the same time in place. Be At that meeting every week. It a sponsor and use that sponsor and don't drink and as far as the sponsorship thing I mean they weren't like this diehard you know you better call your sponsor every five minutes. I mean there'd be jokes awhile you know. Did you ask your sponsor about that? But it wasn't like a real hardcore and then as far as God and stuff I mean people talk about God and mentioned God fair and stuff but at that point I never really had a big thing about God. I wasn't anti-god but it was kind of like I kind of instinctively. I guess my thought on God. If there was a god was he didn't know the difference between me and a troop. You know. It's just kind of this this thing right and it's just kind of there and so I never was judging me Blah Blah Blah So I went to this meeting For seven years or six years I apologize and I was there every week. You know and and I didn't I never heard about ninety and ninety and some of these other things. I didn't even know what they were. I just do that. Can made a decision Drink anymore and I just accepted

Are financial institutions waking up to climate change?

Are financial institutions waking up to climate change?

"Concerned about climate change is rising around the world on the streets in parliaments and among investors questions about the future of fossil fuels are putting new pressure on companies. He's and financial institutions so he was made to discuss what this means are hugh vents daynuss chair of the sustainable finance committee at UBS and former adviser to to Bank of England governor mark. Carney and billy nauman a reporter for the FTA's moral money. which covers the world of sustainable finance? I billy let's talk about some examples of the financial impact of climate change. What's been the economic fallout from the Australian? Bushfires that's a very good example I think and and it's one that's still kind of playing out obviously so it will take some time to see. The True Fallout Bank of America made some projections that the fires just for the first quarter of twenty twenty twenty could subtract at least zero point zero point four percent from Australia's entire GDP. So yeah. It's it's bad and probably a bit worse than people. Were expecting only a month six weeks ago absolutely. Yeah I mean the numbers were seeing on the insurance sector at this point they. They don't jump off the page. Necessarily I think they were close to nine. Thousand fire related claims from September until early January but that compares to just fourteen hundred fifteen hundred hundred for the yearly average of the last five years. I think so. It's a massive uptick in so much is still coming at this point. It's hard to say with the crisis. It's still playing out how bad it's going to be right. Hugh you recently wrote pace for the FDA about why investors and boards NATO take climate. I'm at risk into account now the Australian fires an example of that sort of risk. Or you have other. Things changed as well. Australia is clearly very stark reminder of the potential attention challenges but I think it's a much broader range of issues and I think there's always a push poll we're seeing regulators start to impose stress tests on the banks and their insurers shores particularly led by Governor Connie but also there have been some great initiatives to improve the quality of data. Because the key issue if you can't measure it you can't manage it and I think one of the companies and boards in particular realized they will increasingly be held to account through numbers which could be used both by investors by pressure groups. And we shouldn't underestimate the impact or pressure groups oops grabbing and using this data so far it's been a kind of voluntary initiative nine hundred of the biggest one thousand five hundred companies now starting to measure data but bit by bit is improving but the challenges as just investor behavior themselves. A growing number of vest design meet. Astonished say well they're all GONNA be big valley dispersions not just more Stralia. It could be from changes in tax. Six regulation or Brandon Pam if people think the company simply not honoring its responsibility. So it's it's a range of issues but there was definite groundswell in the market and that son what we're seeing in all business. Yeah you mentioned shareholder pressure there. We've just seen shareholders in Barclays Bank demanding that it starts the phase out financing companies that are not aligned with the Paris agreement. I wonder if both of you this seems to be something of a step up in relation relation to shareholder action when it comes to financial institutions. Is that how you say it or do you think. It's a trend already saying certainly I see. It's a growing trend and I think it comes from particularly some of the AH owners the big pension funds who are demanding action something like two thirds of all new mandates which are granted have some sort of sustainable finance aspect so they're pressurizing the managers to put their money where the mouth is but secondly on billy side of the pond in the states. There's a much richer. Set of data around proxy voting. One of the most striking statistics about the current round was the provos around environment were as frequent has governance. I think that's the first year that I've seen that. Yeah that's absolutely been the trend in it's been increasing and and one of the things I think is interesting is looking at some of these pressure groups some of these activist groups. And they're really ramping up their efforts. I was at a thing in in September around climate week here in New York and it was the principles for responsible banking which is a big. UN Consortium of banks talking about what their responsibility is as bankers anchors in terms of helping the world achieved the sustainable development goals and even at that event there was a group of protesters out there. And you could tell it really struck a chord with the bankers anchors. That were there. You know they're thinking well we're the ones that are doing well. We signed our names to this piece of paper and replacing to do this but from the activist groups. The message was that's not enough. We need to see action on this. And they're very adamant about keeping up this pressure on the banks that are financing fossil fuel companies. That's the case isn't Hugh that the banks are moving. They are taking steps to be more transparent in many cases but at the same time activists are saying listen. That's great but we just want. You should get out of fossil fuels. Yeah I think this is very challenging because you know let's face it finances the arterial system of the economy. And so we always you need power and and whilst I think many can be frustrated with the pace of change this will be more evolutionary than revolutionary some stats that McConnell US recently is one hundred trillion dollars of power and a sustainable projects which needs to be financed of the next decade and some of the going green so a new soda plant but some of them can try to be improving the quality of what we've God and we shouldn't underestimate improving. The bad to good is actually still step forward and I think that's a very nuanced and difficult argument for a financial innovation to make into a pressure. Group agree with what you said and it is very important that we have financing for going from bad to good from Brown to green. Or however you want to phrase it but I think that at that area gets very ripe for greenwashing for putting money into things that are not actually improving climate emissions. Like they might say they. Are you talking. In relation onto green bonds there perhaps green bonds is a perfect example. Yeah and then there's these things called transition bond which is a relatively new development. You Know Green bonds you run into the the problem where these companies are issuing green bonds for these projects that are allegedly going to improve carbon emissions. But it's just they were going to do anyway at stuff they're mandated to do you buy some new set of regulations and they are going out with this green bond and getting better terms as a result because they can label it his green the transition bonds. It's something that's offered offered to companies that might not usually qualify for green bond but they need to transition to be more green so this is a new category of financing financing available to these companies that helps them fund projects that move along that spectrum from Brown to green. Yeah and I mean greenwashing is a concern obviously and seems to me that more and more focus has come onto these sorts of bonds at some people find a suspect however broadly speaking. Isn't this a structural troll issue. I mean it. Doesn't it really point to the fact that there's not enough regulation either national or international of this market. I'm not sure if it's necessarily the regulation because you know if you make an example. Sir Chris hones dissolve all the company's portfolio disclose. Just this Christopher Hon who has a large hedge fund and here in London and. He said that he's not going to invest in any company that doesn't abide by the climate disclosure guidelines. That Mr Connie and you helped develop the Governor Carney server initiative but I think that the bottom line here is that actually sometimes the activists in the regulators may not be that far apart. Obviously there's a lot of good hard work to be done around the Standards Serum the investor point of view. Wouldn't it be great if as early as possible tomorrow. Really these guidelines which as you say currently voluntary were made mandatory. So I think actually in the best thing to do would be say within three years it will be mandatory and get companies to get on undo it there are still some some creases to iron out in the methodology but I think I would be very encouraging of that. Why should we wait three years when we've got the climate scientists telling us that this is a matter of extreme urgency and we really need eight to be cutting emissions as quickly as possible and therefore financing of fossil fuels needs to be effectively reigned in so for me? I would want all the companies to start today. Hey but you may not want to co defy methodologies. There's still a work in progress so I think it's by saying we will make it managed to in three years and we really rather expect you to do it. This year is sort of awed. Get to and billy what about the US. Do you think that you're going to be seeing. Regulators introducing mandatory disclosure anytime soon. No no I don't think the Political Otago Environment here is is going to lead to that at all. Unfortunately and what does that mean then if we have a world in which we have say European countries are making it mandatory the US and others a saying saying it's fine. You don't need to what then happens if we have a very uneven playing field. Well I mean I think we kind of saw something like this with GDP right where American companies have to abide by GDP CPR if they have European clients or do business in Europe so it's it's not ideal that the US is dragging its feet on these sorts of issues. But I do think that US companies will have to come around to some degree depending on what sort of regulation comes out of the you just moving onto another area. Do you think there are parts of the financial world old that Performing will when it comes to taking climate concerns into account for example green bond market is expected to keep growing this year. And we've forty saint extraordinary growth there there any other areas where we are starting to see a real change. You're starting to see a lot of sustainability linked loans Richard similar to green bonds where banks are incentivizing borrowers to hit targets whether it's emissions reductions by whatever means they can do it and if they do so they get better terms on their loans. That kind of stuff is growing a lot of support. You'll nap there's lots of really interesting pockets. One of the ones which is hardly reported about is the private equity quarter to also trying to become more sustainable an increasing number of creating their own sustainable funds. But also if you turn this around and it's not just climate if you've got a very concentrated portfolio do you really WanNa make sure your companies are being well run and that by the time you come until I was seldom they actually look as valuable as possible. So there's an increasing focus on what I'd say is the sustainability the inability of the franchise in all its manifestations and clearly firms will prioritize. But there's a growing market as well in private equity. I'm a little skeptical of of a lot of the claims coming out of the private equity market cricket and that's because of the lack of transparency. A lot of the major major companies have come out with these big impact funds. And when you look under the hood at some of the investments they've made aide you know there since there are no kind of set definitions on what is impact or how impact is measured. Some of them do a little dubious. I've been doing some research into one. One of the the bigger impact funds and just looking at some of the underlying investments. This is the Bane Double Impact Fund which is run by Duval. Patrick who's a former governor of Massachusetts. WHO's now running for president here in the US and A lot of the investments are in home health care which is a growing sector but is that really impact or is that just a play for a sector that they think. There's going to be growth in. I think more transparency from the private equity market would help a lot in terms of if they do deserve credit on this to give them that credit. But I'm skeptical of a lot of their claims this to be frank right. I'd like to ask both of you when you think we will see major banks in Europe and on wall all straight no longer financing fossil fuels. Never sorry to be a downer. But unless they're strict regulation that says you cannot do this someone will always do. Okay never look we will want to keep the lights on and so I. My sense is that this isn't evolution. And I got back the statistic if there's one hundred trillion over investments be made in energy clean energy and transition. That's an extraordinary amount of money. And fumbled in central banks buying and so whether it's capital markets all banks or insurers don't need be financing all the overall transition I think that what regulators can do and what I was certainly arguing for in the pieces through stress testing the banks us through providing better data. You can at least act to trump bring forward when that transition happens and that's probably the best one can hope for. I mean even the practice of with that transition though is likely to have an impact on a lot of industries. And how should that be managed. Well this comes down to the big public policy questions which you know the F. T. writes about so eloquently silently. I mean these are genuinely as much political questions other opportunities. I think that you know Al Gore says the investing in Green Tech is one of the biggest investment opportunities in his lifetime and at one level we need to also change the language so it was seen as much. The investment opportunities immobilized the capital in the way. That governor Connie is going to be going onto after the bank as much chaz trying to stress test and think through the risks. And I think it's a bit of sticks and carrots to try not just along but that's not going to take away the very big political challenges ages of you know who wants a carbon tax. I think that's an excellent point. Actually I I will amend my never if there is a disruptive technology that makes fossil fuel obsolete then then they will stop financing it because it will no longer be profitable. Think about whale oil. I suppose you could compare it to that. When fossil fuels came along and made will oil obsolete than nobody nobody is financing it anymore? So maybe if there is some sort of green technology that completely upends the energy sector then that could lead to it from a fan perspective. I suppose billy thank very much end. Hugh thank

US kills Iran general Qassem Suleimani in strike ordered by Trump

"It it has been the defining dynamic of Donald Trump's presidency indeed of Donald Trump's life 'cause crisis solve crisis or pretend to then claimed credit nevertheless trump's decision to order the drone strike which killed senior Iranian military officer Kassim Salamone in Baghdad? Doc Dead on January third was a surprise major general. All the money was the long serving commander of the coulds force of Iran's Islamic Revolution in regards core the could force considered a terrorist organization by the United States is the unit largely responsible for Iran's various foreign military enterprises in Iraq Syria Lebanon Yemen Afghanistan and elsewhere Sulejmani was one of Iran's most powerful for men in cities across Iran. His death prompted scenes of mass mourning reminiscent of the one thousand nine hundred nine funeral of Ayatollah Khamenei leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution. Iran was obliged to respond and did so but incuriously circumspect fashion at least for for the moment on January eighth a barrage of ballistic missiles struck two basis in Iraq at which. US forces are stationed but did only the kind of damage that gets done when you're not trying all that hard to do real damage as we go to where it is unclear whether or not the passengers and crew who of a Ukrainian airliner which crashed near Tehran on Wednesday will accidental victims of Iran's retaliation in this episode. Tom Edwards Chaz a special discussion looking. At how the. US and Iran got here and where they might go. Next does the United States killing of Sulamani really make relations relations between Washington and Tehran. Any worse than they already were is Iran. Really willing to call it a draw. Can we expect further confrontation tation as America's presidential election looms and does Iraq get any say in any of this. This is the foreign desk. I I think right now yes. The focus is on the United States because of these airstrikes but the reality is once the dust settles are GonNa be focusing on both again. I it just right now this at this time of tension and these strikes that had come out during the past week is diverting attention which is the taking back. The country of Iraq Iran was on the losing end in many any of these countries in Iraq people were saying we don't want your in Syria in Lebanon and Yemen Iran. Although it seems to be so powerful was on the back foot at the end of two thousand nineteen and and the potential that this strike gives Iran is a way to try and change that so there is a benefit potential benefit. Iran could take advantage of the base has really divided lighted about. US engagement in the Middle East by enlarge. They want the war's end they want the president to focus on the United States and its interest. He has to balance to the looking tough but he hasn't liked to take action that puts us back in the middle of what is really an unsolvable challenge. That is the middle at least at this moment in time.

I'm very well your last chance to say this was the decade of and so what was it in the decade of this chancers the decayed of other everything. Everything fell to pieces both in good ways about ways at music. The music disintegrated and facilitates into a billion different things. So it's impossible to say this is the sound of the time that is captured. The moments that it doesn't happen anymore that everybody lives in their entire entirely sort of separates had medically sealed genre bubbles and but also I think it's a it was a time when the public realm realm the wheel.
