The Birth Of The Greenback

"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah. Support for NPR and the following message come from fund. fundraise fund makes it easy for anyone to invest in high quality real estate by building you a portfolio with their more than one billion dollars in assets get started at fundraise dot com slash indicator to have your first ninety days of advisory fees. Waived. This message comes from NPR sponsor. Microsoft teams. Now, there are more ways to be a team with Microsoft teams bring everyone together in a virtual room collaborate live on the same page and see up to forty nine people onscreen learn more at Microsoft Dot com slash teams. So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure. This story in like a whole bunch of other like believable stories like this are in your new book money. The true story of a made up thing. This episode of the indicator was produced by Nick.

Film Academy Announces New Diversity Requirements For Best Picture Nominees

"Hi. This is in the Chicago Tribune yesterday. In an historic move, the Oscars are raising the inclusion bar for best picture nominees, starting with the 96 Academy Awards. This is the one in 2024. Gives the motion picture industry time to do what they say you need to do if you want to be considered for the best picture to meet on screen representation, Standard of film must either have atleast one lead character or a significant supporting character be from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group. At least 30% of secondary roles must be from to underrepresented groups. Where the main storyline theme or narrative must be focused on an underrepresented group. Otherwise, the way I understand it If you're not including people who are under represented relative to gender orientation, race, ethnicity, even disability. If you don't do that, then you can't be the best picture. Michael Phillips. Film critic joins us on W G N Hi, Michael. Welcome to the show. Thank you, John. How are you doing? Really good. That's my understanding of it is that is that a right read on what they're going to do. It is it's although it's it's damn complicated, but, you know, really broken down beautifully with Steve Zai, Check my festival going, pal who's writes in The Washington Post that it's complicated, but you gotta get to Of the four elements right story. The film story, lead actor or ensemble have tto prominently feature unrepresented groups or, you know those working behind the scenes, Same thing, or the production includes paid internships and training for those who are under represented, or that always released team has to have multiple in how senior executives from underrepresented groups, so it's complicated. But you only gotta hit two of the four and I think that I think the telling point he makes is that out of the last 15 best picture Oscar winners last 15 years. 73% of would have been quite clear. No problem. I'm not just talking about what happened. Moonlight or parasite we have, you know, clearly like not the usual white wall of characters or treatment, but you know there's all kinds, so it's not really a cz. I don't want I don't want to. I don't wanna throw fuel on this fire. But it's not really to say it's not the same kind of You know, like under. What would you say affirmative action that a lot of the right is framing it as but you're also saying, I mean, so you see the glasses three quarters full, but I You could also see it is one quarter empty. That is one in four films would not that one. The best picture had met this criteria. Not usually, but I mean, if you just had hired, Let's say, Let's say you didn't even re cast that or rethink anything. It's on screen. Right in terms of the characters are the actors, If you just if those productions had, well, you know what Let's we're all we have is a bunch of white grips or we've never had a female, You know, director of photography or we've never had any any composer of color, you know, working out? Why not? Why not think twice about that? That's that's a less visible but equally important. Right. I think people will judge this though maybe by what they see on the screen on I'm thinking, okay. King speech won best picture that was populated Desire recalled by white people. However, that is about a disability if you will, so maybe that satisfies the requirements. I could just see there being lobbying for some of these criteria to Yeah. Yep. Yep, the ones that would have would have run into a problem. According to the Washington Post, uh, run down his argo, the artist, No country for old men. And the Departed would have had the toughest time as wass. But, you know, it was a little again with a little adjustment. I look, I'm not, You know, I'm not the guy who's gonna Say this is an outrage. I'm just not that guy. You know a TTE the same time, John. I know I'm a hypocrite. Because, you know, I'm one of a white wall of critics of Chicago trip, you know, so it's a sensitive topic. And this is all part of kind of what we're You know what? What Every person in this country is dealing with one way or the other, which is like you know what? How do we? What is this country?

The Decline of Local News is Solvable

"Margaret. Sullivan is the media columnist for the Washington Post and formerly the public editor of the new. York Times. Her new book is called ghosting the news local journalism and the Crisis of American democracy? I talked with her about the scale and seriousness the collapse of local news and what can be done to fix it. Or Margaret thanks for joining us on solvable and let's talk first about the dimensions of this problem. There's no question that we are losing local newspapers. I think something close to two thousand. If I read that right in your book have gone out of business in the past fifteen years and the ones that are remain aren't exactly thriving, and of course that matters a lot to us journalists says our friends that's the system we came up in. But why does this matter so much as you say in the title of your book to American Democracy. It matters because. While newspapers are certainly not the only way that people are informed about their communities in their public officials, they have been over time perhaps the key way that people get information about how their local governments are functioning and how communities have a base of. facts from which to operate they may disagree on the facts or what to do about them but they sort of have this shared substance that that makes sense to everybody. As that has dwindled away largely because of the dissolution of the underlying business model based on print advertising. Largely, people are are less informed people are less civically engaged and it. It hurts the underlying the underpinnings of of the way our society in our government is supposed to function. So it's primarily an accountability problem. Right if simply put if the press isn't watching government officials can get away with more corruption mismanagement. I think you said it exactly right Jacob. It is primarily an accountability problem but I I see another aspect to to which I just like to mention which is has nothing to do with really watchdog journalism or that accountability piece, which is that newspapers have traditionally been away that communities helped knit themselves together whether it's about coverage of concerts or restaurants or theater or interesting people or obituaries it's sort of village square for the community. That has nothing to do with whether the town council or the city council is mismanaging your tax dollars, but it does have to do with sort of cohesion within the community. So it's it's both of those things and probably a bunch of others to. But why is it important that it's news organizations versus you know bloggers or people posting smartphone videos tweeting about what's going on their town or community Weisensee. Citizen Journalism the replacement for all this. Citizen Journalism. If that's what we want to call it is is part of the solution. One of the things it can't do very well, though is publicized to the same degree that a front page headline or a big homepage treatment can from the Chicago Tribune or the Sun Times you know it's a lot easier to ignore a gadfly citizen as these folks might be seen rather than a big institution that's powerful.

"Actor jussie smollet in a sixteen count indictment that alleges that he lied to Chicago police about being the victim of the phony attack. The former empire's star had been initially charged last month by prosecutors on one felony count. The filing a false report. The incident sparked breathless international media coverage in Ted social media, speculation accelerated by the political implications of an openly gay black man's alleged assault by attackers who put a noose around his neck. He claimed that they yelled maga- tried to bring Trump and Trump supporters that oh my God. The Trump racist white supremacist. Mega loving Trump loving attackers. They hit him because he was gay because he was black. And of course, it was a complete like a complete fabrication. Chicago police had worked around the clock on the case for three weeks, I to investigate an alleged hate crime. And then to completely dismantle smaller story this data what I'm reading is coming from the Chicago Tribune. So this is a Chicago Tribune report. And then on February twenty first the day that was charge. Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson blasted this guy for dragging Chicago's reputation through the mud. So the breaking news is that jussie smollet has been indicted on sixteen counts. Dumb ass. But I'd check. Yes. Dope. Yes. Unbelievable. That he would even think that he can get away with this. You know, the the story from Chicago Tribune said former empire star, I know that they they cut them from the last two episodes, but I had not seen sewer. They fired him completely. So. Yeah. I I had not seen if he had been fired completely. I don't know. Could you could you look up the the Chicago Tribune story? I just ran it seems then the k they call them the former empire star format seems to suggest that he was fine. I still remember that. But what a what a moron. They ought to throw the book at him, and he should be prosecuted to the full Senate the law. He on a have to reimburse you he wanted more money. He thought I guess he was making one hundred thousand dollars an episode. He wanted more money. So he can cockpit the scheme I by sending that that letter with the Canucks fake cut out letters, you know, trying to signify a ransom note was cutting letters out of a magazine and this threat against his life with a noose hanging around a stick figure with a gun to his head or something to that effect. And then he's going to die and this and there was white powder in the envelope. And it was mailed to the production office for the TV show shot in Chicago, and that didn't draw enough attention that wasn't good enough. He was disappointed in the response. So he concocted the attack on the street. How people think they're gonna get away with this nonsense that it's not going to collapse that it's not gonna fall apart. That to me is just. Incredible. Just amazing. I've got a question for you in the final minutes of the show here. So can can I see my call screen here. Please. Can you move over? The I want to see the cost. Thank I wanna try. And if you're going to open up a few lines here. I wanna know what you think what you the Schnitt listener thinks. Here's the story.

"The Chicago Tribune. Yes. Twenty WGN on the road live here the AllState skyline studio it's hard to think. Right. We are just a. A handful of short shopping days from that holiday time from Christmas. And so people are making their choices here. And I know that a lot of people are thinking of themselves when it comes to great grilling gifts for that special someone what are you gonna get? Right. You could head into now. And in almost any store people have it you don't necessarily have to have to find a specific barbecue. So of course, we recommend the backyard barbecue star where you've got everything plus the expertise to go along with it. We have one of the experts in studio with us the one and only max good from amazing ribs dot com. I think on the product side, here's what it is. That you guys do at had knows this in a big shout out to him as he's he's heading off to the theater, right? Correct. Me does not define him. Right. Grilling barbecue expert, and he's gonna take in some Shakespeare today. You know, I think Shakespeare. When he was done doing all the theater stuff. It would it would grill a little bit, right? He would barbecue somewhat. Well, all around the world, there's different traditions of cooking outdoor over live fire, and I'm certain Shakespeare took advantage of it in his day with are there any now, I have no have all my Shakespeare place in front of me. But are there any scenes where there is maybe a conversation over let's say a grill. I I love Shakespeare, and I have memorized a few passages. But I don't recall anything specifically along those lines. Okay. Well, maybe we'll look into it. The the the lesser known was maybe we'll emerge at some point. So think about this you guys when it comes to the list. It's basically the Shakespeare of information when it comes to greet products on the grill side, and you do the grills the smokers, and that kind of end of things and people think, oh, well, jeez. How many can there possibly be max? Right. There's so many out there now. It's incredible. Well, you know, the the desire to cook out. Adores is escalating worldwide American style barbecue is catching on all over the place, particularly in Europe, Australia, some other areas. But yeah, I mean, I I try very hard. But I can't keep up with all the products that are out there. They're coming at me, a mild mannered Dane well in. You think about the popularity of it, and you talked a little bit about so sort of that global reach. I was just down the Jack, and they have international competition. There were people that were doing some really amazing stuff. I mean, so that learning curve and our good friend, mutual friend. Really happy Dr barbecues over there at grill stock all the time. And he said initially when they first started there. It was crazy. They didn't necessarily like understand the whole concept of American barbecue. And what to do and how to do it? There are certainly creative. Right. And there's some great minds, and they had some decent equipment. But now, I mean, it's only taken a handful of years, I think because of the internet because places like amazing ribs dot com. Right. We're all information is out there. And I think the the playing field is getting kind of level where people are are. Are you a more people are grilling and enjoying grilling all around the world. And it is a good business. I think it is one of those businesses. I mean, I don't know if you've studied the trends or whatever, but as far as being able to make something and do it at a very high level in your own home. I mean, grilling is one of those things. Absolutely. I think cooking in general. You know, you have the all the food shows on TV and on the internet. People like to cook. Just a wonderful thing. You know, you really get a reward every night after you've cooked something, hopefully, you get a reward. If. Awarded shows true. That's true. But you know, I it's it's it can be a social activity particularly with barbecue. I mean, what RBQ is social at you? You wanna be outside? You want to have a beverage in your hand, you want to be gabbing away with your friends and family. We we're going to be pushing. I think it's going to be forty fifty degrees today maybe tomorrow too. And so you don't have to brave the elements in order to do it. But Chicago is one of those places as I have talked to grilling enthusiasts. It's one of those places where we don't let the weather stand in the way of what it is that we want to do whereas in other places in the country. It is more seasonal, right? You know, it's it's in the summer in the backyard, kind of thing, certainly we do all of that. But but here I think in Chicago and give me your thoughts as far as maybe some of the feedback because amazing ribs dot com, you have fans subscribers people that come to the site from all over the place. But but Chicago, I mean, do we grill more than maybe other places in the country? I don't have statistics on it. But I would say that there is a trend as people. Become more and more interested in cooking and more interested now door cooking. There are leading weather stop them. Whether it's rain or snow, or whatever, you know. And we hear from a lot of folks that say they, you know, I don't care if it's snowing. They send us pictures of them shoveling their grill off they're out there grilling away. It's the whole grilling and meet and we've talked about famous Dave always says that there's something you know, as Steven Reich. Glenn always talks about it as well. Right. As something sort of almost from the caveman times that we're like it's in our DNA as humans to be able to to have meat and cook it over a fire and all those kind of things, but the equipment has changed. You think it's been around forever? And obviously it has with the the whole caveman thing, but the, but the grilling side of it is when was the one was the first grill made was was it like a Weber kettle grill. I mean, and I don't want to go all the way back to you know, what we're in the ruins of Pompeii kind of finding something that could be, but but as far as like the modern girl as we know it well. However was one of the first that really made a splash, and they're right here in the Chicago area, by the way, as you probably know from but there were other girls banging around at the same time portable kitchen PK. They came out the very same years Weber introduced their famous cattle nine hundred fifty two. People were I'm sure there was stuff floating around out there. But I mean, Henry Ford famously tried to promote barbecue with the model t he had these wacky little kits. Because the idea was I got to get people to buy these cars. So I have to give them a reason to buy them. Well, you can go drive countryside grill. Get a car, I think he hit me with it in a bag of charcoal. And here's a funny story, people don't know this. He actually started the Kingsford charcoal company. Really? Yes. He was may he had all these wouldn't parts from making the model t's they were a little odds and ends. And he said what can I do with them? I I don't wanna waste them. So that he made charcoal out of them and one of his daughters. I believe married a guy whose last name was Kingsford. And he ended up taking it over. I did not know that. So one of our kind of a conic adventures was also there is one of the founding fathers of the charcoal briquettes. Absolutely true. Yes. Wow. Okay. So all right. So let's talk a little bit about what what we have here today. So now you've got Weber. It is one of those as simple as it may have been in the fifties. It is it's basically unchanged. But it's still, you know, it's not broke don't fix it. Right. It's the same one. Now. I know they've done some adjustments and certainly some bells and whistles, but they're still making the same basic thing. If you go to their facility in Palatine, Illinois, right outside of Chicago. They have a small museum that has the older and they have one of the original kettles. Here's something else that you probably knew this. We're looking out of the beautiful. Lakeside here from your from your studio. Weber was actually a company that made booties that were used out on the lake and on bodies water, and that round bottom George Stevens was working for Weber as I recall and making these bullies. And he just chopped the top of one off and put a lid on it. And that's how the kettle started. He put dampers in events and on put it on legs. So he got the name somehow. I guess I don't know all the details on that. But Webber grill was actually the bottom of a buoy. And if you if you see the original ones you go. Yeah. But it's funny. I've grilled on them for so long to open at litter. This whole thing it looks like it came from Pompeii, and he opened up the lead. You look at the bottom, and it looks almost exactly like they look. Wow. You got think? Right. It's it's a very simple concept, and this kind of thing that's been sort of copied in different ways. But Weber is the one that has really kind of staked told that that market share right in and you look back yards here in the Chicago area. Anyway, around the country, you know, you're gonna see a Webber grill back there. And so are they still as guy who's used consistently testing things out there is it the mousetrap thing? I mean is it still for what it is you to put some charcoal in and and light it up and make some make some things right? Whether it's hot dogs hamburgers, or even maybe some more complicated. So is the Webber grill. Still the way to go from a product perspective a full-size Weber kettle you can make anything on it. You can make pizza. You can make cakes. You know, you can make ribs you can make steak you name it. You can cook out on a as long as you know, what you're doing. And if all you want to do is, burgers and hotdogs, you can do that too. You know? Yeah. For the money. You can't go wrong. You know, if that's severe on the desert island scenario. What are you going to bring with you? Charcoal on your island might as well go with a kennel, and for those people out there that are considering thanks and we've got a text from the six three zero. Do you have to get you know, there's other markets that make or other places where you can get basically a kettle kettle type grill. It may not be the brand name of Weber because Weber's is kind of. I think it's maybe at a premium, right? It's it's a little bit of expensive for what it is. Are they all the same? Or is there something magical about is it the metal or the way that they're doing it? Or is it just better as far as quality of construction? There are some other good brands that make charcoal grows and are not all kettles either. But yeah, there's a lot of knockoffs out there. Weber does a lot of things right though. Some of it's on the marketing and sales side, but also customer service. They have the best customer service in the business. I don't want to sound like I'm doing a commercial here. But they do I've been at their factory, and they're very proud of their processes, and they have a reason to the they're consistent. They're good. They're not very generally a little more expensive, particularly when you get into the gas grill. You. But once you have elaborate a lot of people don't switch. They just depend on the kind of thing, and that's part of the sales. Of course, you've got to make sure that we mentioned we're talking with max. Good from amazing ribs.

"The Chicago Tribune. This is wondering if our guests like here this time in the middle of the summer. Not yet. Tuesday. Talking to Brooklyn fired and Graham, they are it. Why don't even actually know which characters you are are you the leaves in nutcracker. I do heater which is the nutcracker himself, which is kind of fun. I save Marie from the evil mouse king in the battle scene, and we journey to the world's fair in the second act together. So it's a it's a really fun role to portray a lot of acting which is fun tons of dancing. So, you know, very happy with that. And we all too many different roles. I mean, the great thing about what it does is that they don't try to just burn someone out on one role for the twenty nine shows. I mean, that's just a lot. And so they there's different casts every night. I mean, we can go see two shows in the same year, and it'll feel it's the same story. Same choreography? But however, one interprets it is very different, and it's cool to see the differences. Sometimes. And having done this real before. Brooke? What do you bring like how do, you know gear up for something like this? When there's a different carnation of it. You know, when when you have to sort of bring Christopher's version of it to life. Well, Chris was I was there when it was made. So it's very helpful. 'cause crispy so much information and cues about our characters and background information. So I do a variety of roles throughout this run. I am like a mom in the party scene. And I am in the snow scene and visited the fair also a wild west woman, which is so each character each scene, you know, you have to take your different person. You know, you can't go through the whole to our show like like smile and sparkle it's like you really want to we all try to embody these different roles. You know, like, what does it mean to be this worker woman who's now like celebrating Christmas with her friends and family, and then in the snow seemed like, you know, you're something other world year snowflake has its own challenge. And delight it seems like I mean, obviously, it's very physically demanding the roles and being a dancer. So what do you do? I know you don't get. A lot of free time especially in December. But when you're not performing to kind of unwind and escape the physical demands of dancing. There's a lot of things that you can do. I mean, mostly just you know, breasting is tastes great salt bath, but just icing and making sure that you continue to do your physical therapy every day. It's it's a it's a constant work just to maintain your body, and your physique we take ballet class every day. And it's it's never done practicing. You never done working, and honing your skill and all of that just contributes to how you have to take care of yourself because it's really easy to kind of like burn out, and that that's not fun. And so I sing and going to see physical therapists getting massages also cross is really important to you know, going to the gym doing some yoga doing. Different things because you, you know, you wanna be as well rounded as possible because the dance world nowadays is has a lot of classical stuff. But we do a lot of very contemporary stuff in the spring. We do a hip hop piece. And so it's a lot of different styles of movement. And there's not one perfect way to do anything. And so having a well rounded like physique and body structure, really lends yourself to being able to do wide variety of things that law where are you from originally Brooke I'm from Utah from Utah? So the cold weather doesn't necessarily hit you too hard. Every say, it's harsher. Yeah. Meaner? Does it feel more personal here is that what it is? Attacked by the air joined that where are you from Graham? I'm from San Francisco. Well, I've been here for ten years. Now eleven years and seasons is like a new thing for me never really had that. So I have to say that first couple snowfalls is so magical for me. But then you know, January comes. I'd say grace. Does it is it leaving three lights are down. Yeah. And it's also kinda hard. I have to say sometimes performing when it's when it's cold out because it's like, we'll have like a matinee show, and then in the evening show, and in between, you know, you want to go get a Cup of coffee a bite to eat then. So you have to have really bundle up outside get your food, really quick. And then come back in and then like warm up again. Yeah. You don't wanna you know, pull something. So I was wondering that you have to stay warm. That's that's the name of the game. Yeah. Well, I was delightful talking to both of you. You're so charming, and I can't.

"That any more than one is usually a good idea definitely, so other comments or questions For our panel Several of you spoke about intimidation, that reporters receive and I've gone to several panels this week where this has come up again and again and hearing the other night from NBC news and obviously an, organization, like Bloomberg the the, New York Times they have a structure in place of support for their journalists and. For their reporters when these issues of intimidation come about specifically the other day that the woman from the New York Times who was one of the reporters who broke the Weinstein case spoke that had she. Worked somewhere else she might not have had that support from editors for the months and months took her to pull that story together when he was actively. Intimidating many reporters I'm wondering what advice would you give to people at, smaller news organizations medium or small sized that perhaps wouldn't have all have that reputational, support behind them institutional support behind them No question that that makes a big difference as someone who's worked, for like a little paper in Alabama where you'd have like sheriffs and even smaller, counties like intimidating people Versus working at the Chicago Tribune or Bloomberg Well known charities we did investigative work with against when I. Was at the, Chicago Tribune and big threats but you know when, you're chairman CEO's a former Wall Street banker and you have a, lot of, lawyers, and people are very season they're like okay don't worry about it And you have not only that financial and. Establishment power behind, you but the depth of experience up and down, the line to kind of gauge things it makes things a lot, easier the, only, thing I can say Is you have to instill in, here journalists that people will try to intimidate you I mean the people still constantly. Try to intimidate me and my. At our reporters in small ways Little there's constant little friction with the White House with the State Department where they're trying to. Claim you know that we shouldn't be doing something and, it's really to try to intimidate us and. A lot, of journalism in small ways and large will be people trying to charm you intimidate you And you just have to get people, used to thinking about that but I do think it I now that I'm on the other side and an editor going over to. The dark side I am highlighting the positives of that it really helps to even in the small paper hopefully have, that, wise editor who can can. Can reassure you or say you, know we need to listen to that other side? Sometimes and it's a difficult thing as a reporter and editor to say okay they are raising a point they are trying to intimidate me but to what degree. Is this a valid point I need to listen to that and it helps if you can discuss that with someone else And and the I personally think it helps to bring both experienced to it and fresh People are unjaded and on. Unexperienced and don't have that narrowness that you get with experience over time And that's that's the main thing I would.
