"I have nothing for you but this is what I will say. I do think that if this does anything for us. Because I don't think it reduces predatory behavior in the workplace and I don't think it changes the political structure but it helps us understand the weird position organizations are in where they're doing work that is challenging structure. But how's it interpreted as political because I think the sticking point about why this story can't be folded into the metoo world. I think is really really fascinating and I think can help us. Think about some of the narratives that have emerged about. You know vindictive women ruining men's lives and that these organizations are just you know trying to hit jobs. It's like well. These organizations are also under the kind of structural pressure that a lot of institutions are. I do recommend listening to the entire interview with Katie Helper. Because when she recounts what it was like working in his Senate office. I think a lot of the dynamics will really resonate with people about how. Some behavior is excused. What's it like to be a young woman Who's politically ambitious working? In Washington and the various ways that people interacted with her I felt like was really illuminating and I think could be very helpful for folks to check in with all right. I think that's all the time we have for Joe Biden today listeners. Let us know how you're processing this allegation ends? If you're one of the people who thinks the mainstream media is falling down on the job let us know why and what you'd like to see from the news. At this point you can email us at the waves at sleep dot com all right now. It's time for our recommendations Marcia. Why don't you go? I still after a conversation about Mrs America. It made me think of my favorite documentary about Shirley Chisholm Chisholm. Seventy two unbought an embossed from two thousand four and it looks at her campaign for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination in one thousand nine hundred seventy two from the streets of Brooklyn to the Miami Convention and it shows that Shirley Chisholm 's run for president wasn't just about her. It was about bringing new political actors to the table. It was talking about the rights of Native Americans. It was talking about feminism. And it's really wonderful about the documentary. It shows the people that she inspired to run for office and Congresswoman Barbara Lee is in the documentary and she often talks about Shirley. Chisholm is run for president as inspiring her career in public service. And so I think that in our very dreadful times the energy and the excitement about a political candidate who really speaks to people who are often left behind can be very inspiring and uplifting. Well I need to watch seeing the me too. I'm on my Shirley Chisholm high from Mrs America Judy recommend this week. So I would like to recommend a podcast from the BBC but it is available as a podcast. You can just search on your favorite player and it's called. Natalie Haynes stands up for the classics so Natalie Haynes used to be a standup comedian. That's kind of the source of the title. But she's obsessed with the ancient world especially the Roman and Greek world and she does shows were always ladies and gentlemen. Today I'm standing up for Livy or I'm standing up for Aristotle. Whatever and she kind of talks about these people from ancient history and really gives a flavour of them and she's very conscious to about talking about women even though there's often very little historical record from the ancient world about women and most of the women that she talks about are effectively concubines But there are very many different types. I won't attempt to recall the Greek word because there's many levels of sex workers in the ancient Greek world. Some of these women actually had power and One Friday was known for her wit and for her smarts. The format is a little odd is kind of a stand up. Show that then. She kind of interrupts to do interviews with experts on this period to give more context. It's absolutely fascinating to me. And he's done the impossible. It just made me wish. I'd paid more attention in Latin class is one of the rare things that have really been able to get into their just half hour shows and you just kind of learned so much that. I'm just loving it Natalie. Haynes stands up for the classics Nicole. What do you recommend? I'm going to recommend a website that database and it is fiction DB DOT com and it is a fictional database and I found this one of my followers on twitter. Sent this to me because I was looking for a romance novel. Dyed red and the early nineties. When I was a team I just knew it had the word Viking in the title I remembered you know a lot of what happened in the book but as you can imagine there are thousands of novels word. Viking and I couldn't remember the exact year but This person sent me the link to this website. Fiction DB DOT COM. You can go in and you can look for something by subject if you know the author of course title and so the genre are separated into sub genres and I feel like whoever did this actually differs specifically for Romances. But there's also let's say you're looking for a thriller. Ray You can go in and look for. If it's a medical thriller a legal thriller if it's some sort of hardboiled. Detective kind of thriller that kind of thing you can like click all these things to help narrow down what kind of book it was when it was and so. I did end up finding the book. That is what was it called. It was to simply the Viking by Margaret more and I think it came out in ninety two and I highly recommend this because I was able to find other romances that I read when I was a team that stood out to me that I just haven't been able to find and so this is also a way that I have been supporting independent bookstores throughout the shutdown. Because I've been able to find the books and some of them you know. They have used copies available. So I've been able to find almost different romances that have been on my mind since my teenage years. So how highly recommend fiction DB DOT com? If you're looking for a fictional book that has stayed on your mind forever and you can't remember exactly the title or the author but you remember the year and the genre or sub genre or the age level. All these different things. Is there for you? Well what a great tool. I'm GonNa recommend something that for me was born out of necessity but I'd like to continue doing post pandemic and that is cutting the hair of people own your household God. I need what I need most need that most. This is the one thing I know. He's great privilege. Oh my God. There's never been a better time to invest in a set of clippers so my partner always shaves the shaved part of my head even in healthy times and then. I just go for a professional haircut when the long part needs cutting but she goes and gets her haircut usually every like two or three weeks like the second. It gets a little bit too long. She is feeling like not just for you. But like extreme discomfort so I watched a bunch of youtube videos about how to do fade. I cut her hair. It looks pretty damn good If I do say so myself and it's just like this is the perfect time to learn that skill because no one's GonNa see you or your roommate or your kids or whatever and kids. I think it would be a particularly good time to practice on. Because if they're young they don't really care anyway so this is a great time to learn how to cut their hair. I would also recommend if you would be normally getting your haircut during this time. Maybe send your normal Stylist the tip that you would normally send them but to get through this time and to prepare yourself for any apocalyptic future learn to cut your hair your friends hair. You know if you are quarantined together. Don't go out of your way to see New People at this time but yeah it's a lot of fun. I have to share a great tweet that I saw yesterday Someone who I know. Country on twitter said normally. I'm pretty happy to be single but right now I'm wishing I'd married a barber or me. Apparently now I won't say I'm good as Barbara but she doesn't look hideous so mine is too long nice. I really am at the point of like I'm just going to ship buy had because it's too much it's like. Oh wait to see that. I'm a little ways away from them but not that far and I should say listeners. If you do attempt self haircuts or a haircut someone in your family please send US photos. I. There's nothing. I love more than home. Haircut photos all right. That's our show for this week. Thank you to our producer. Rosemary Belsen and our production assistant Cleo Levin for Marsha Chatwin Nicole Perkins and June Thomas. I'm Christina Ricci. Thanks for listening..

Without pity heavy podcast about every single episode of nine to now they have now included melrose place as well as the nine hundred thousand a reboot as someone who watched this probably a little on the scientists louise. I might have been in sixth grade on this came out. It is hilarious because because they are best friends so it's really nice to see their own friendship but also struggling to watch so much aaron spelling programming makes them saints in in my book but it's also an interesting look at what television the nineties was offering and nine hundred zero was revolutionary in that it was a nighttime soap for teenagers that had new episodes in the summer and also had a lotta guest stars like music legends color me back so it's a wonderful thing if you really wanna relive the nineteen nineties <hes> sarah and tara's conversation about beverly hills nine o. to anno- and melrose place to put a smile on your face yell.

"Use. When it comes to online dating, and so many other human activities, there are two big unknowns. The first and more commonly fretted about is other people who is other person are they who they say, they are are they shorter. Are they older are they actually funny? What are they really like video dating seems like it could really help with all of these questions really help with the problem of other people, but the other less disgust. But no less mysterious unknown, isn't other people. It's ourselves dating can highlight the disconnect between who we think we are. And who other people think we are this is the vulnerable soft fleshy underbelly of dating maybe of existence. You do all of this work to present yourself in an appealing way. And then some people don't find it appealing at all. This is why video made in addition to being funny is so poignant. Yes, there are guys. Who don't seem to know how they are coming across on their this is a very exciting time for my life because I'm just starting new clean digesting business. But there are also guys who really do seem to know themselves and are still coming across pretty intensely. What I'm doing right now is making a movie about World War Two. It's a number two movie on a terrible actor, I'm better in person than. The name on the screen if my movies of any indicator of that the close maybe old the predicament is contemporary to find people who will really like you for you. And who you will like intern. It helps to be open and vulnerable and genuinely yourself. It actually helps to be the Viking I'm really looking for somebody. I can feel special about and I don't encounter people like that very often. I'm hoping you're one of them. But if you're going to do that, if you're going to be the Viking, you also have made it that much easier for your actual vulnerable self to be laughed at to be rejected. Because who you really are. No matter what it's not for everyone. Video is theoretically great at showing other people who we really are. That's what's good about it. But that's also what's bad about it. This is the paradox of all dating apps and services. There is no technology in the world that is going to be able to make being really seen and then rejected feel good which is maybe why the most popular dating technology more and more shows us, less and less. We've never had more access to more information about more people, but we are increasingly going on a photo on a swipe having only a sliver of who you are rejected just sucks less asking people to invest as much emotion money and time into dating as great expectations did even as video mate did is a total nonstarter because among other things. It's terrifying. To be that exposed video dating may have technology and time on its side. But it keeps running into the problem of being human other people can hurt us. And to face that you need some bravery. The video made men as laughable as they are are at least a little brave Schorr. They no less than we do. Especially about the possibility to thirty years later. We might still be watching them, but they're putting themselves out there. Putting yourself out there at can feel really bad.

And to face that you need some bravery. The video made men as laughable as they are are at least a little brave Schorr. They no less than we do.

"People. We started working on the story. I thought it was going to be a story about a cultural object something that people in different side of America's political divide saw completely differently. And it is a story about a cultural object. The object in question is not truck nuts. The object is humor itself truck nuts makes some people laugh, but the people who find them gross or crass or stupid or the bleeding edge of all sorts of odious ideological positions. Don't quite believe that anyone could be buying truck nuts as just a joke. We imagine that they are on some levels sincere. And this makes us laugh. Meanwhile, truck understood people who don't find truck nuts. Funny who don't get why. They're funny who don't the irony in them are up tight, and they in turn get a kick out of that people actually find funny about truck nuts, then has very little to do with being a pair of balls and everything to do with them being apparent evidence that other Americans have a bad sense of humor. Well, you're seeing happened with truck nuts. Like what happens to an unhappy? Couple that ends up fighting about the same thing. No matter what the cause in this case, the cause is a pair of plastic testicles, but the fight devolve into what it always does everyone talking past each other and projecting the worse things onto the other side, including the idea that the other side isn't funny at all a shared sense of humor. Of course is a really important thing to a functioning relationship without one. There's no pressure release. There's just endless conflict, and that's pretty much where we are. Right now about things way more important than truck nuts. What's crazy about this fight in particular? Is it Americans of every political persuasion, find balls funny instead of being something that divides us, I can imagine a world in which truck nuts? United us or United those people who are really tickled by extremely basic dick jokes because that's the world were actually living in a world in which truck nuts. Customer base supply.
