Good morning. I'm Beth Housing. Get ready for very hot temperatures inland. It will be a little more manageable around the code edition from NPR News. I'm Scott Simon. We try to take some pride here at Considering all things if you please. From the who wasn't aware of a new steward of the how and why of a persisting condition like poverty. The correspondent who currently reports on poverty for NPR is leaving after an admirable career. She's her own, Pam Fessler. I'm going to miss saying that and she joins us now, Pam, Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you, Scott. I'm so happy to be here. You've been a working journalist for 47 years. Uh, newspapers. Congressional Quarterly is a past 28 here at NPR, where you've covered the White House and Homeland security. Voting issues and and of course, as we say poverty Seen a few changes. Yeah, a few. Uh, first. I think the big change I've seen is who's actually in the newsroom. When I first became interested in reporting I was a little girl and my only role model at the time, believe it or not, with lowest lane of Superman. Because I didn't know of any female journalists. Fortunately, by the time I started working in the 19 seventies that had started to change. I think the second change I've seen has been technology and information. You know, When I first started, I had a typewriter. I had a glue pot and a ruler on my desk because when we wanted to change paragraphs around on our copy, we actually to rip up the paper and re glue the paragraph. Um hence, cut and paste exactly. We didn't have word processor, cell phones or the Internet. But I look back and only information I got from my stories. I got firsthand. I went out. I talked to people. I heard their stories. I watched what was happening. And today the technology is a lot better. But you know, we have to spend so much time today, waiting through all this information. Try to determine We know what's true what falls and we often have to respond for those falsehoods and correct misinformation, and that takes a time away from going out in the field, I think, And of course, that's the beauty of working at NPR is, you know we really value those stories when we can bring people's voices and their sounds to listeners from around the world. And you've been able to do so much memorable work with your reporting on poverty to bring voices to the ears of people. What? What are some of the stories that really Stay with you. Well, I mean, the overarching one obviously, is the income inequality in this country, You know its impact and what can be done about it. You know, I started covering this speed right after the great recession. You know, when we saw that widening of this gap, and here we are in a pandemic when it's probably going to get even wider. Most of my stories. A lot of my stories. I focused on single mothers who were trying to make ends meet because these to me were the families that were on the front lines of poverty. A lot of them worked, but they have low wages. They have problems with child care, transportation, and they get government assistance often, but not always, but they're barely making it. So I did a lot of stories about the impact of this on Children growing up and the big gap between black and white families in this country, especially when it comes to accumulating wealth, But I think the most memorable ones to me were about homelessness. And one story that really sticks out in my mind was I followed this couple in Baltimore and older, homeless couple first story about how the homeless population is aging and, you know, they were just worn out. Especially the man Tony, who was very worried about his girlfriend. I've got to get her off the street. I can't.

"But I think at this point with what the news we're having, we're hearing in both guys are gonna play, even though the weather can be dicey in Denver, I think office a better play. Let's go to Chris. In Torrance, Chris, go ahead. Hey, guys, thanks for having me on. I have Matthew Stafford on a bye week this week. And I was wondering if I should pick up manning for tonight or another quarterback. I like you situation. You know, the weather's going to be probably determining factor in how he performs. It's. It's not the best that you Asian, but his track record against him Schwartz and the eagles defense coordinator there for Philadelphia play them twice. Last year threw for eight hundred yards and six thousand two games. Their defense on the road. So far against Tampa Bay and Tennessee, Marcus mariota and Ryan Fitzpatrick lift him up. So I think he wasn't a good spot. So if he's your best bet on waivers go with, let's go to Ian in Santa Clarita, Ian, go ahead. Yeah, flex position, non PR, marshawn Lynch or joined Alman. I think in a good game, how's the chance for good game this week? I'm always into the the the side things that go along with the game. You know, the extracurricular stuff and for him, I think revenge game will matter facing his former team first time. I know it's not in Seattle, so you're not going to get the same type of love in London that he would if he was going back to the Seattle Seahawks there, but their defense is giving up numbers. So you saw talk really gets gets, you know, big game three touchdown last week. So Lynch run well. And I think there's a good spot to trust. Let's go to Daniel in l. a. Daniel grad. Hey, thank you very much gentlemen. So the thing is that I have a trade offer on the table. I have Todd Gurley on my team and I've been offered Patrick Mahomes. I'm trying to think about it. I'm thinking about leveraging it with the deal for James. Connor, maybe Mark Ingram, what are your thoughts. I wouldn't give up any of those players from a homes as great as he's been, you know, quarterback play is just been fantastic if you can find guys. Not again that Mahomes level, but his best production is most likely behind him. They'll have some good games along the way and great games along the way, but you can find quarterbacks. I mean, we're seeing now game is Winston, for example, coming back from vilely coming off as a session. I think he's a better play the moment as we can particular and maybe better than in rest the way that's a stretch to say that, but that's just the way quarterback plays Vince well, don't trade any of those running back home. Here's a question online Hines or barber at running back. All you gotta go high and you know Marlin MAC may return, but Hinds has been ten tastic into passing game, Barbara's probably going to get back to Ronald zone, at least that would be the hope. Okay. Let's go to Chris England or a Chris. Hi. Yeah, I have a question to three renting bags and PR Aaron Jones. Lindsay or small with tonight. You know, giving them it's PT are I think you look at small woods because they'll use both guys probably in the same type of capacity climent in mall woodville he's gonna catch some passes. Lindy's gonna be a little bit better than that. Pinger Jones. The one thing that makes me excited about Aaron Jones's game flow. I think they're going to be beating the forty Niners at home in lambo a tough place to play for the opponent. The before knows run defenses in a little suspect and Mike McCarthy taken a lot of heat for not playing Jones more. So if you want to play it safe and go with Jones over maybe Lindsay who hasn't done a ton in the passing game. I'm fine with that. But all three guys are very similar. This Fred in north Hollywood quickly. Big band or Goff. I go big bang against the Bengals secondary. I think he has some success Chris in Long Beach quickly, go giddy, Wessberg Taylor, Gabriel or Tiki Qatui. One of the best names and football right now keeping t- would be my voice. He's done. He's been fantastic. The last two games playing the slot receiver. Perfect. And let me grab one more here, Tony and brand. Joni. Flex Amari or Geordie..
