"Up for all these different reasons, feeling like, I think it's just me. Like, I'm not telling anyone about my fan fiction. I didn't know outside of there are other people I know who are at home writing. Slightly inappropriate stories about Harry Potter characters. You know, I was just like, maybe I'm just like super weird. And I just gotta go find other people who get that, yeah, I guess that's really a through line through so many things where I, whether from circumstances or just like self imposed beliefs, where I was just like, I'm the odd one out. No one else feels like this. And no, I think I'm finally at a point where I'm just like, no, I think actually everyone feels like this. Do you think that's like a form of confidence? I think so. I think so, or even just like this openness, to myself, but then also like an openness to just so much more where I don't know. So of the self help books that I love reading, there's like one that was just sort of like, this sounds really basic, but for some reason it was so novel to me, but it was like, when you're sort of stressed out, everything is a threat, right? And I was like, oh, yeah. That makes so much sense why, when I was in my early 20s and I was having apartment problems like, I couldn't do anything. I couldn't hold down relationships. I couldn't do the writing. I wanted. I hated my job, and it was just like, oh, I didn't feel safe and secure. So of course, I couldn't really do anything else. I think getting to a point where things just sort of feel secure and safe, I can actually then be open and curious about my own stuff, but also just like the rest of the world and just a much more healthy way. I think than just sort of being like, please, Internet tell me the answer so I can plug this into the other part of the Internet and get points. It stopped feeling like a game you could win or lose? Yeah, yeah, or just yeah, 'cause I think I was always like, oh, if I just get a certain number of Twitter followers or a certain job or whatever, then I'll be safe forever. I'll be secure forever, and I won't want anything else. And I think I'm realizing that that's not really, that's not really how it works. Because others are just endlessly chasing, you know? Sorry, this turned into a therapy session. Oh, if that's anyone's fault, it's my fault, but I love so I'm so curious about what it means having arrived at that place, realizing there isn't some line that you cross and then it's like done. Yeah. What do you think that means for your work? I think that's like the terrifying question. Because I think a lot of people are like, oh, okay. What do you want next? And for a long time, I knew the answer. I was like, oh, I have this kind of whole, it's not really a plan, but kind of like a vision board, right? And, you know, I'm about to turn 30, my novel's coming out next week. I just got back from reporting in LA for Vanity Fair. Like, what the fuck? What else? Well, I don't want anything else. That sounds crazy. I mean, the short answer is I'm like, oh, I just, I really want to really build and build a community and be really subtle down and I found, I think I found my people and so now I'm just kind of like I want to be in the world. Instead of at home and the computer room, you know. But that's not so crazy. Even just saying that a lot, I'm like, what the fuck? I get cute. I can't believe it. It's like really hard to even look you in the eye where I'm just like, oh my God, I'm like saying these words out loud. You even look me in the eye like ten minutes. I'm so uncomfortable. This is so exhaustive. All my guts are on the table. Well, it's a pretty amazing moment to talk to you. Yeah, yeah. I mean, this is crazy because I remember being a fellow at the Atlantic and I think she'd be okay if I shared this, but my friend Amy Weiss Meyer, who's now managing editor there. We were in that fellow class together and we would just talk about, we'd be like, do you ever practice your answers for the long form podcast? And you'll be like, yeah, I think about it all the time. I think about it in the shower. I think about it at breakfast. I do a little rehearsing, you know? And we'd be like, yeah, one day, man, you know? So this is really crazy. This is part of that. This is part of the dream. Due to live up to your expectations, or did I just ask you about your feelings all the time? No, I think I have never had a conversation like this where I tied my whole life together. So, you know, invoice me, I can send you my insurance info. This has been kind of incredible. Well, I've been looking forward to over a long time. And I've held off inviting another show because I wanted to wait and talk to you on the eve of this book and it was a real pleasure. I'm glad you did. This is the moment. Thanks, Delia. Thank you, bags. Thanks

"So there's sort of that obvious culture clash, but then I think the sort of bigger joke is that the bigger culture clash is like her New York boyfriend and also her New York self coming back to this very, very small town and kind of grappling with like, oh, there's really not a place to get green juice here. And so it's supposed to be funny in that way, but I think it's also just a larger story of someone who didn't like the place where they grew up. Got away, made the life that they thought they wanted, and then they're coming back and trying to, I think, reconcile her past and her present. I mean, there's obviously a fair amount of overlap. Yeah. For you. How much overlap is there? How much of you is in this book and where are the places where you went off script? Yeah, I mean, I love this question. I was always like, oh, is it weird to be like, how real is it? I love asking people that question. If I go to a book reading and someone's like, actually, this is like all made up. I'm just like bullshit. Like, come on. We all know. This can't possibly be all made up, but I was interested in what you were trying to work out with it, you know? Yeah. So the book is the emotionally true. The sort of setup in terms of the daughter of Chinese immigrants grows up in central Illinois. It doesn't really like it. And then moves away and goes to New York and gets a corporate job. That's what happened to me. So in some ways, I think I wrote the book as this hypothetical of what would have happened if my life branched off and all these ways according to different choices. What would have happened if like one specific path was undertaken where, you know, I ended up maybe working in advertising and I had a fiance and I had to bring him home. So it's sort of like that could have totally happened. So I think the novel is sort of this answer of like, if I had lived that life, what would have actually happened? What about the relationships to yourself as a younger person and into that place in particular, thinking about Delia? How do you think about that time now? I mean, not to send all Meghan Markle, but I've been really into the whole inner child sort of work. And so when I think about it now, I have a lot of love for that person because I'm sort of, it's funny because talking to you, I think there's this narrative of like, I grew up in the middle of nowhere and wanted to be in the center of the world. And I kind of just like learned my way there in a way, and to sort of see, even just from this conversation like the seeds of that in the middle school are on quail, it's very moving emotionally, right? Because I don't think I knew at that point of like, this is my ticket out of here. This is how I'm going to make a life for myself that I really want. But I think there is something that I really recognize in looking back in terms of she was searching. She wanted to know more. She just knew there was so much more out there and she wanted to be a part of it. So I really love that about, I think, my younger self, I think that relationship is not really the one that's in the book. I think the one that's in the book is sort of like a harsher one where it's just sort of like, so Audrey, the main character, I think when she reflects on her time in high school, there's a lot of shame, but I think there's also this recognition of whether she actually was alienated or just sort of felt alienated, like kind of all these combination factors that made her feel so trapped in angsty. I think she sort of recognized that like, yeah, that was a that was a bad time. But I did what I had to do and now I'm fine, right? But I think what's more interesting is that she sort of realized like that narrative is a bit more complicated. It wasn't all bad. You actually did have people who cared about you. You did have really good memories, but I think she's sort of thinking about this animal part of her that was just like, I gotta get out. And now she's kind of at a place where she can really revisit it like a rational person, mostly rational. But some of that feels pretty familiar. To like. Oh yeah. How are you even talking about the writing you're doing at Vanity Fair? Yeah. Going back, looking at stuff that meant a lot to you at different points in your life. And realizing it wasn't just. It wasn't just me. That has been a real, this is like my, I think, the last few years of my life realization is like,

"Like resume. Yeah. Part insurance policy. Yeah. And part just really fun. Yeah, yeah. And that that worked. Yeah, and I think in some ways it was a nice lesson in sort of separating out like, I think like millennials in general are in this pursuit of or like we've been taught, there is a dream job out there and if you just work hard enough, you will get the dream job that fulfills you artistically, financially, everything. And I just remember spending most of my 20s being really frustrated that I was not close to that job at all. And then doing this little newsletter on the side. But sometimes I look back at that now and I'm like, that was a good kind of separation of like, I don't know, like your job is your job and then you also have fun and make stuff for your Friends. Is that the way that you feel about your job at Vanity Fair? No, I think Vanity Fair I'm kind of like, this is it. This is like you've been waiting for and the pressure is still, I think, so high. And I think every other day, I'm kind of like, what am I doing here? Now that we're kind of back in the office, I'm in meetings with my team and also the rest of the magazine and I'm just like, it's sort of that same cafeteria Watergate feeling of just like, am I not that like, you know, am I supposed to be here, but just sort of like everyone here knows so much about so much and I'm just sort of overwhelmed that I don't know, where is my place in this? So I don't know, it's been like a year and a half, and I'm still really intimidated every day. It hasn't gotten better. I don't think so. I literally was like talking to a friend who I think had seen me right when I started. And then I think a year in, he was just like, oh yeah, it's like, how's it going? And I said something and he was like, that's exactly what you said a year ago. And I was like, oh, that's a little embarrassing. Because I think the thing at Vanity Fair is this sort of shocking realization of anyone you want to talk to. Is probably going to talk to you. So the world really is your oyster, and that's kind of incredibly terrifying in some ways. And I'm sort of like learning, learning all these lessons about just what that kind of power is like, you know, because what's that kind of power like? What are you learning? I think I'm learning how ruthless of an eye you kind of have to have because if you're kind of interested in anything, that's not always useful to your audience. And so I think what all of my colleagues at veterinarian are just so good at is figuring out is this going to be a thing? Is this worthwhile? Is this an interesting story? Is this an interesting person? And they make these decisions so quickly and it seems to come to them so naturally. And I'm just sort of like, wait, what? That's crazy. I'm still the little J school student in Columbia, Missouri running around and being like, please, will someone talk to me for my story? I'll make anyone sound interesting. I don't have this luxury of being like, oh, we've already interviewed this person or whatever. Do you think that's how the play sees you? No, I think they think that I know everything about what's on TikTok or whatever, and I'm just sort of like, oh yeah, sure. And then I'll go home and look at it later. You know, I think, yeah. I think they think I'm way more embedded in the Internet than I really am. Do you think they're gonna find out? I think they'll listen to this and be like, oh, that's classic Delia. She's just like, she acts like she doesn't know anything. I mean, this is maybe a little meta, but I feel like you're pretty comfortable with the whole newsletter was pretty meta. Is that classic Delia? Do you like actually think that you know what's going on and what you're doing? I don't know. I don't know because I think for a long time that has been like my identity or that just sort of like I felt like in the room I'm not necessarily the underdog, but I'm the person like knows the least about kind of what's going on. And I think objective, I know at some point that has changed, but I also keep putting myself in these situations where I'm still surrounded by people who are kind of at the top of their game or doing what I have fantasized about forever going to the Atlantic. I was like, oh my God, I'm sitting in the cafeteria and Olga khazan is over there. And I read her work all the time. And this is really happening. I've pictured this, but I don't feel comfortable. Like I don't feel like this is right, you know. I mean, this whole time at VF, I've been trying to figure out, okay, what is going to be my thing? And I was always in like, I think I'm still kind of like firming that up in terms of like, oh, it's Internet culture, but also I'm kind of interested in these kinds of books, and I'm interested in what's going on with more of a text scene, stuff with Elon Musk and Twitter, and I'm also interested in just sort of these random characters in our imaginations like the blues clues guys or whatever. Yeah, there's been at least a little bit of nostalgia bent to the stuff you've been writing. Blue's clues and the woman who wrote the book about adulting. Yeah, yeah. But also like you're writing pieces about return to office. And workplace dynamics. I don't know, there's a pretty wide gamut. Yeah. And every other day, it feels like I'm sort of still kind of trying to figure out what is, what is, what is my thing, what is my brand, whatever, but I think I'm starting to trust that there is something driving maybe like a sort of unified sensibility to things. I mean, just hearing you say that, I'm like, oh, there's clearly something about my whole deal where I think now that I'm in this kind of position of literal security, but also I'm not scrambling in my career anymore. I'm like looking back on things in my life, including my childhood, but also I'm just like just things that I cared about and noticed in sort of realizing like, oh, other people really cared about that stuff too, and actually we can kind of look back and talk about it together. Like in the case of I think the adulting stuff where it's like, oh yeah, my friends and I love this book, but we never really knew other people liked it. So I think I'm just like in the part of my life right now where I'm conducting this reinvestigation in some ways on things that I've always been interested in or I don't know things that have just kind of stayed with me and that I realized, oh, these things and these people or these movies also matter to other people and why is that? I feel like that's a decent segue to the novel. Also has some themes of going back to reinterpret. Who you were and what you were interested in. Can you give the quick synopsis of central places? Yeah, so the premise of central places is sort of this like the big city girl goes back to her small hometown in central Illinois. She just got engaged, so she's bringing her fiance and he's like a nice white Brooklyn media guy, not based on anyone I would know. And she's introducing him to her parents who are Chinese immigrants.

"Dating apps, whether you're single in a relationship or somewhere in between, you can't get away from them. But what happens when your romantic life is part of a company's bottom line? I'm Lakshmi renda Rajan. And I'm sangeeta Singh Kurtz. We're hosting land of the Giants. This season, the $1 billion business of dating. So far, we've told the story of how big tech made the search for romance a game, and the methods they use to keep us in an endless cycle of swiping. We've seen how one company match group is behind most of the biggest dating apps out there, and why that could be a problem. And we've explored how we've entrusted our romantic futures to mysterious algorithms. Coming up, we'll dive into bumble and whether the so called feminist dating app has actually changed the game. And we're looking at the future of dating. Are we all headed to niche apps? Are we going to be using artificial intelligence to find love? Or is the next generation of data is going to give up on apps altogether? Land of the Giants, dating games, follow wherever you listen to hear new episodes every Wednesday. Tell me about starting the newsletter, so like it was in part that you were jealous of the folks on the editorial side of this fellowship, but it couldn't have just been that. That newsletter, why start writing about the media? What was driving that? So my fellowship was in this little weird area is about like corporate strategy and I had no idea what that meant. As a 22 year old, but it was mostly just like I just had to read a lot of news and nieman lab and then just sort of boil it down into memos and stuff. But one of the jobs was like, there was like an internal newsletter where basically we would just kind of basically do our own version of a Neiman lab newsletter just like, here's what's happening in media. And so my boss's slash mentors at the time, Michael and David, they were really bullish on the newsletter format. And they were like, you know, if you're into this, you should, here's other ones to subscribe to. And I was like, oh, okay, cool. You know, I could get down with that. And so in some ways, I felt like I started subscribing to all of these newsletters around that time in an effort to catch up, but it also just in terms of trying to figure out like, what is out here, what's going on, how am I in this position where I'm supposed to boil down the news for other people in the company? And I don't really even know what I'm talking about. And also, it's like a pretty small audience. It was a super small audience. Yeah, I remember I was trying to be funny in this corporate newsletter. And they were just like, no, no. That's okay. Yeah, it's just like, okay, so the joke free zone. Exactly, yeah. So I was like, I think that's when I was like, oh, I should, I should just do my own, and then I can be really funny because the thing is once you read a certain amount of media news, you're like, this industry is crazy. Like hilarious things happen all the time. You can't not be funny about it. So I started on tiny letter. I'm not sure when it came on my radar. But my experience of reading the newsletter for a long time was that you were like both learning about media and sort of becoming part of it. Yeah. In the newsletter itself. Educational and then at some point you were a part of that ecosystem and then at some point you had it really well wired and had a bunch of opinions that struck me as really, really smart. And also pretty novel. Does that mesh with your experience of it? I almost want to delete probably like the first two or three years of it because I'm just like, oh, it's probably so embarrassing because I'm probably like learning about, I don't know. Like really basic things and then being like, did you guys know, you know? Well, I went back and read a lot of it. Oh God. Before we talked, I can tell you. But there is some of just trying to figure stuff out. But it's like, it's so enthusiastic. And it's pretty optimistic. Yeah. It was probably optimistic because I didn't know that much, right? And then I think in some ways I was like, I think it's around a time where digital transformation was still, I think, full of possibilities. In college, David Granger came and showed us the iPad version of esquire and we're like, wow, this is the future, you know? That's why it still seemed like there was so this could go at any direction. And so I think it was really easy to be optimistic in that way. I mean, if Granger came to mizzou and showed you the esquire version of the iPad, that's probably like 2013. Yeah. It was like whatever it was where it was like, oh, if you hold up your iPad, the cover star dances around and we were like, oh my God, journalism is for everything. But I feel like by 2016 or 2017, it was like, no one's gonna read esquire that way. Yeah, yeah. Like that stuff felt pretty clear.

"Then what happens next? Clearly you didn't take her advice. I was so convinced that journalism was the path that when I was just looking at colleges, I looked at a bunch of journalism schools and I just remember being really into the fact that miss zoo's journalism school is pretty much a trade school. I remember I was looking at the website and most J schools for undergrad. It was like, you know, basically one journalism degree and mizzou was like, you can choose, do you want to go into newspapers? Do you want to go into magazines? Do you want to go into advertising? Or you can go ahead and broadcast. And there were just sort of all these even smaller concentrations so that you could literally go to mizu J school and graduate with a bachelor of journalism that had an emphasis in magazine publishing. And that specificity, I was like, yes, I want to do that because I think I really wanted to work in magazines. And so I was like, this is the way, because I was just sort of like, I don't know how else you would do it. I don't know anyone in the industry. I don't know how you actually do this. I have a faint idea of what mister Hilliard does all day. But I think I have to go to and literally get trained on this from the bottom up. And now when I look back, I sort of wish that I had gone, maybe too. I think I would have done things differently in some ways because, you know, I think I missed out on some more like normal college experiences, but I was just sort of like, I'm ready for my career, what is the middle step here? What do you feel like you missed out on? I talk about this all the time with people where I'm like, I've never read Proust, like I feel like I miss all of these references that are tossed around like daily, like anything that I read or hear, sometimes I'm just like, I missed out on kind of this classic work in a way because I took stats classes and humanities classes, but not that many. It was mostly like a trade school. So I was sort of like, oh, I remember, we had a class, where they taught you how to tweet, and they taught us what a hashtag was. Really? You went to hashtag class? Yeah, it was like multimedia journalism class. We had to make an account. We had to tweet like three times a week. It was the best training ever. Was it actually? Yeah, yeah. But it was like it almost seems like a satire. I know right now of what a J school would be doing in 2012 or whatever. It was kind of funny because we were like, we don't need someone to explain to us how to do Twitter, but I'm not sure that I would have gotten on Twitter at that age if it wasn't required. And it was sort of very silly where they were like, oh, you have to, you know, you have to be consistently, think about your brand, like stuff like that. But this was in 2011, 2012 where I think actual journalists were still trying to figure out, is it gross to be a brand? And at least in school, they were all about it. They're like, you need a brand, you need to think about what your niche is going to be. You need to think about engaging your audience, we had to make websites, we had to blog, and of course all of us being college students, we started using our blogs to write about each other. We used Twitter to talk shit about each other in a very thinly veiled way. So really it was like the best training. For being online. There really is a trade school, I guess. Their whole thing is like, just go out and start doing it. We can't really teach you how to write an article. But it was kind of funny because mizu is in this pretty small midsize college town of Columbia and every single journalism student was always like working on some kind of project and the role was like, you can't interview your Friends. You can't anyone you know. And so I'm telling you, every resident of Columbia, Missouri, has had like a glowing profile written about them, like a million times over. So it was also very competitive in that way we were like, oh my God, I need to look for a story that no one in the history of the school has ever done. And it was kind of impossible. Were you competitive? No, no, because I sort of immediately was like, wow, there are kids here from very, I think, news literate households. And they were so intense that it really threw me off because I just thought we were all starting from the same place where we maybe we read old issues of Vogue, but I had friends who were like, did you read this month's Atlantic? And I was like, what is the Atlantic? I didn't know. I didn't know. I didn't know what The New Yorker was for sure. My exposure was like, I see the magazines in the grocery stores. Yeah. And that's about it. So what did you do with that feeling? It helped me make friends in a way because I'm trying to think of the friends I made in college and I think so much of it was us banning together within the journalism school and sort of observing the groups of other students who were just like huge hustlers. It sounds so judgy. We were basically judging other students for being more focused than we were. We were all just kind of scrambling all the time. But it was just really funny because there were some students there who were like, so well suited, I think, to that kind of pressure and that kind of like kind of aggression even. I remember I had a friend who I went to a city council meeting with and you could just tell he was born for this. He leaped up there, was interviewing all these city councilman and we're like sophomores, you know?

"Join you in the introduction to this program. Max, who have you got for us. This week on the show, I talked to Delia Kai, Delia as I am sure you guys are familiar with. Is behind the newsletter these links. There's a media newsletter. She started it as a fellow at the Atlantic magazine and it recently landed her job as the senior vanity correspondent at Vanity Fair. So she's now at Vanity Fair and talked about that. We also talked about her new book. It's a novel, came out this week. It's called central places, so we talked about that book and how it fits into her media life and how you parlay a newsletter into a full-time job and why she didn't want the newsletter to be anything more than what it was. It was a great conversation, really enjoyed talking to her, I feel like I learned something about how the media works now, you guys. Wow, even grizzled max, learned something about how the media works? No, I know spoilers. But there's an interview did make me feel very old. I should tell you guys. I definitely am at an all time low of knowing how the media works right now for the entire run of this podcast. It was very kind of Delia to come and give me a tutorial. It's very helpful. I do know, however, that this show is produced in partnership with vox media. They help us make it, which we thank them for. Thank you to everyone over there at the vox media. And now here's max with Delia Kai. How do you live? Hi, Mads. Thanks for doing the podcast. Oh my God, thank you so much for having me. It's very exciting for me. We're in person. Yes. Which is like, I feel like still is rare enough that I have to note it. And I feel like I'm talking to you like a kind of wild moment. Yeah, yeah. I think I've just blocked out so much of it that day to today. I'm just like, oh, what's for lunch? I gotta go figure out lunch. And then, and then it's the next hours I problem. Well, I do want to talk to you about this novel, which by the time this airs will have just come out, you and I are talking the week before, how are you feeling about it? I'm feeling really excited. I've gotten a lot of really good advice, I think, over the past few months. And so I feel like I've hit all the stages of panic, dread, being convinced I'm gonna be hit by a car. But I keep kind of like sort of cycling down to this place of just excitement and joy and really looking forward to, I think, just sharing something that's so personal to me with with my friends. Most of whom, you know, just don't really know about kind of the sight of me, both sort of fiction writer wise, but also girl from the middle of nowhere wise. So it sort of feels almost like a, I don't know, some kind of debut, I think, of like, here's my full self, you guys, I hope you like it. It's amazing to be meeting a moment like that, feeling joyful. Yeah, I mean, we'll see. Talk to me tomorrow and I might be like, I'm like freaking out. I'm definitely gonna get hit by a car. But at least right now in this moment, joyful. Yeah. Well, I have more questions about the book, but I feel like we should start with the side that you're saying you're like revealing to people which is where you grew up, tell me about your hometown and also what was your relationship to magazines and writing and media when you were a kid? So I was born in Madison, Wisconsin. My parents were grad students, and then we moved to Peoria, Illinois. I'm pretty quickly. I think when I was like four or 5, so we lived in pure proper. Period proper is a midsize city. But then we moved out to what is technically a village. It's called the village of Dunlap. It used to be a farming village, basically it's now more of like a suburb of Peoria. And I really grew up there, I think, from the age of 7. Through high school. And education was always super important for my parents, and so I was always reading. So remember, like, sort of really just like gobbling up what print media was available. Because we didn't really have the Internet Internet back then. And my other sort of core memories, like going to the library, I think in middle school and checking out these really old issues of Vogue. And just having my mind blown because my mom's in read, fashion magazines. And so I would take these home and I would read every single word. I would read every caption. I would read the little I think where they acknowledge who photographed this or whatever, or like the little price tag on every bag. And it was like a foreign world. But I think I was so starved for any kind of words that I would make myself study it. Were you writing at that time too? I think so.

"Love and loss are levelers. one could avoid loss. And we all crave love even as it can make losses harder to bear. Dearly Efron has written a memoir that takes us through a short time in her life in which she was rocked by the loss of several loved ones, welcomed a new love into her life, and then was struck by a disease that lurked within her family line. Her book is left on tenth. And Delia ephron, the author of many screenplays, including you've got mail, essays, novels, and a play with her late sister Nora joins us now from Manhattan. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you. I'm delighted to be with you. I find it daunting to try and explain what you went through in that short period. Great writer of dialog that you are front. How do you have you perfected a concise line to explain what happened? Life gave me a story so big that I simply had to write it. But one of the things about this story is that it contains so much luck. Good and bad. That it made me wonder about things like miracles, it's also about friendship because I was carried through. So I'm really, oh my existence now to love and medicine. Yeah. Book opens with an awful moment in which you had promised Jerry your beloved. I guess we say first husband now. It was fatally ill that he could die at home. But then there's almost a wrestling match for you to try and make that possible. I was told that if I got all the documents, the DNR and the healthcare proxy, then if he fell or something, I could just call up the EMTs and they would come over and I would say, you know, please put my husband back in bed. Yeah, DNR is do not resuscitate. Yeah, do not resuscitate. So I call 9-1-1 and 5 EMTs show up in my apartment. I'm thinking all I want you to do is just pick up my husband and put him back in bed. And they said, no. They were going to take him to the hospital, and he was so ill. He had pneumonia. I knew that he had at most 48 hours, maybe less. So it was a madness. And finally, I just started crying. And he died later on at about three in the morning. And I went into the room. I just said,.

"Survived that your new marriage survived this? No, I'm not. But that's because I know Peter, we were all in. And Peter made me feel beautiful even when I looked like an old rack. I mean, he just did. And I felt so cared for and I mean, there was that period when I was so sick and I didn't know. I really wanted to dive in. And I didn't feel anything for anybody. But that lifted and when it lifted, we were back. We were back. Do you think that you're both different people than who you were when you met before you got sick? There is no question that I can't believe I'm here on some level. I think I try to be nicer to everyone. When I was that person on the street with a walker and in a wheelchair, I realized that I had never had the kind of compassion and understanding that I have now for people who many of us will be there. I think that, you know, being in love at this age is very comforting and very magical and yet I have friends who absolutely do not want it. It's not something they're interested in. But for me, it's like it's sustenance that we can have the fun we have together. I mean, we have a lot of fun. And that's been marvelous. Delia efrain, it's great to talk with you and hear that you are in good health. And I wish you continued good health.

"Or a very good feminist novelty act. But this debut does prove that teasdale and chambers possess the instincts of canny entertainers. Ones who already know how to hook you in to their prickly, raunchy, witty way of looking at the world. Kentucky reviewed the new album wet lag. Coming up, we hear from writer Delia Efron, her new memoir is about falling in love after her husband died, and soon after, learning she had the same disease that killed her sister, Nora Ephron, this is fresh air weekend. My next guest Delia ephron writes that when she fell in love with her husband, Peter rutter, when she was 72, she thought she'd fallen into her own romantic comedy. She writes them for a living, with her sister Nora Ephron, she wrote the film you've got mail and was a contributing writer to Nora's screenplay sleepless in Seattle. But the romantic comedy of Delia's own life was circumscribed by death. Nor a met Peter, a psychiatrist and jungian psychotherapist, through a New York Times op-ed she wrote, relating to the recent death of her husband screenwriter Jerry Cass. They'd been married over 30 years. Peter read the op-ed, felt there were many confluences between Delia's story and his own and got in touch. That's how the relationship started. Delirio was still recovering from the death of her husband and the death 5 years earlier of her sister Nora, who had a particularly virulent kind of leukemia that runs in families. Delia was diagnosed with it just a few months after she and Peter fell in love. The treatment nearly killed her. There's enough bad news in this world, so I'll tell you right at the start, the dillion not only survived, it's very unlikely she'll have a recurrence. Her marriage to Peter survived the ordeal too. Delia Efron's new memoir is called left on tenth, a second chance at life. She lives on tenth street in Greenwich Village. Delia Efron, welcome back to fresh air. I'm so glad you're well. I'm assuming you're well, how are you feeling? Yes, I am. I feel just fine. Thank you. Good. The last time we talked was in 2013, and we talked about the death of your sister Nora. And now I've just read about your near death from the same illness, but before we get to that, let's start with the romantic comedy part. Your husband, Peter, found you through an op-ed that you'd written in The New York Times after your husband Jerry had died. And he had had prostate cancer. He had a terminal diagnosis for 6 years before his death. The cancer had spread to his bones. Jerry was a writer too. He wrote the book for the Broadway musical ballroom, which was adapted from his teleplay for Queen of the stardust ballroom. So would you describe the op-ed that you wrote? In The New York Times, that got Peter's attention. Oh my goodness, I was just trying to disconnect. My late husband's phone, Jerry's phone, and I got into such a battle with the phone company. And so I was on the phone with him for hours. And I'm getting disconnected. And I'm having to obey their prompts. And I'm like absolutely losing my mind. And of course, I'm grieving at the same time. So, you know, I did what I do. I wrote a funny piece about it for The New York Times about losing my mind over my husband's death and Verizon. So 6 months later, I got an email from Peters. So he wrote and reminded me that we had had a, well, we're still arguing about whether it was two dates or three dates, because I don't remember it at all. But that we had, let's say, two dates, 54 years before. When I was 18 years old, and Nora had fixed us up. So that's, you know, that was kind of amazing. I mean, there were so many strange confluences and I wrote him back. I hoped it was charming. And we started to write and almost within minutes we fell in love. It was like, oh, it's like we were waiting to meet each other. So when he wrote you the first email, did you believe him? Did you believe that your sister Nora had set you up on a date together when you were 18? You had no memory of that. Well, first of all, he writes a very lovely email. And I'm pretty good at reading things like that. So I'm completely believed it. And he told me the circumstances he'd worked at newsweek as an intern in the sports department and she had been on the clip desk, which was absolutely true. And he knew I'd been to con college, which most people didn't know. I've spent two years there before going to Barnard. I mean, everything was, and then I, of course, Googled him like crazy. And it turned out he had written two books on sexual harassment. So I thought, oh my gosh, I mean, and he did not mention that. I mean, Peter spent a decade in the 80s defending abused women in court. So I Googled him and he seemed like a marvelous substantive man is what he seemed like a substantive man. So we started to communicate and it was as if we'd been waiting to know each other. It was, it was falling in love the way I had fallen in love with Jerry, 32 years before. I want to talk to you about falling in love at age 72. You're right. It's as if the universe had given us a gift to experience all the madness and thrill of falling in love at a time in our lives when that was supposed to be over. And then you write too that you enjoyed sex together. And then you're right. I want to apologize for even mentioning sex. No one wants to hear about two 72 year olds getting it on. In a movie, if you have two 72 year old simply kissing, you want the camera far away. So can you talk a little bit about what it's like to fall in love at the age of 72, you know, emotionally and physically. First of all, I think because I'd had so much loss and pain, the experience of being in love was it was like the sun was shining on me. And I think that romantic feeling that passion that you get, which was exactly the same as not when I was in my 20s when I couldn't tell a good guy from a bad guy, but when I had gotten smart in my 30s and was, you know, good about figuring out who was someone to date and everything. It was like then it was like that time of my life when it was just so it just took all the pain that I had been feeling, all that loss, and it just erased it for a while. It was incredible. And but the thing is, you know, if you fall in love in your 70s, I mean, death is right there in front of you. You can reach out and touch it. So there's a kind of defiance if you fall in love. It's a defiance of that. As well as a sense of madness am I really doing this? I mean, this could be all over tomorrow from just the fact that we're old. It's a different thing, but oh, I'll tell you one really thing I think is so important. In many ways, it's easier to fall in love in your 70s because you know who you are. You're not trying to have a career trying to have children or trying to find all these other things you want besides a mate, maybe this particular kind of house or that particular earning money. I mean, all these things that you're trying to juggle. But it's complicated in part because like your husband had died about a year earlier. And you felt uncomfortable getting into another relationship. You felt a little guilty about it like maybe you were betraying him..

"It from you so long. I was so scared to ask him Terry and it was interesting because I kept waiting for him to tell me this so that last SNL show my dad came to the party at the Hudson hotel and talked to Lorne and was just the Belle of the ball of the life of the party talking to Marcy Klein and was so happy and proud of me and I was waiting for him to tell me and we had the best time and he got to see my last show. But he still didn't tell me and I'm like, God, he hasn't told me yet Steven's like he's gonna tell you he's gonna tell you. Then I invited him out for a press junket for this movie I did with cape back in sale called serendipity and I said come out to the four seasons and we were at the pool one day and he still hadn't told me and we were just having a wonderful time and we went and sat and lounged by the pool and I just thought I'm gonna be brave and ask the $1 million question that only a daughter can ask a parent when they're still alive and I said I have you ever thought you might be gay and I remember like I said it's so slowly that it was like a ticker tape of like a plane like take a deep breath and then it was like a pause and he was like most definitely and I was like what? Probably like, what did you just say? It's like almost like you can't hear what they're saying. Most definitely most oh my God, what a relief and then we ended up talking about it Terry for the next 72 hours. We drove to ojai and we went to Carol's diner and I just got to ask him every question I ever would want to ask and I said, did mommy know and he told me and I said when did you know that you were gay and he's like, oh Molly, I knew in grade school I'd go on double dates and I would look at the boy and I like this one boy who was from Poland and I liked the way he his hand held a cigarette. He looked so manly and I would look at the JCPenney catalogs and see the macho men in their undershirts and I was like, oh, you know, so we had this open conversation and I said, did you ever hook up with anyone? He was like, yeah, you know, I would be on sales chips and businessmen would give me their cards and I'd be like, oh no like kind of mad but intrigued but mad and then he said he would get action truck stops as men who were closeted in that at that time did. And I was happy for him. And it was such an honor that he came out to me and I think it was a relief for him to be able to tell me. And he died like 6 months later. You were with him when he died. Yeah. And you're right that it was so good to be able to be there with him and for him because your mother was taken away from you so abruptly in the car accident when you were four, were you able to talk or was he like not really consciously able to speak by then? Yeah, he was able to talk and he was in the hospital. He had slipped at a wedding and cracked his femur. He was stoned sober, but you know, he didn't call us when he was in the hospital, my aunt Bernie college. He said, you better call me in the hospital. And you know he had prostate cancer. So his bones were compromised from the treatment. Before he died, he had a long phone conversation after he came out to me where he was like, you're my lucky star, Molly. I want you to know having you and Mary was the best thing I ever did. And I said, I know, I understand that he didn't want me to think that he regretted having children. Right. But any on his deathbed, he gave us advice, he told me, go on, get married, have children, I think you will have great joy with that. And then he also said, you know, also don't ever underestimate a good small part in a movie. I had done this movie called analyze us with Billy Crystal, where I just did one scene, where I played his patient Caroline, who was going through a breakup and really crying and my dad loved that scene. So on his deathbed, he was, you know, saying his goodbyes and we were like, well, you watch over us from heaven and he was like, indeed. And he said, don't cry for me, 'cause I'm gonna be okay. He was very, he believed in an afterlife, and he was not afraid. And then he said, he was taking oxygen. And so about this movie analyzes, he took an inhale, and he was like, giving me advice. He said, small parts, and we were like, uh huh, small parts, trying to make out what he's saying, then he took another nail of auction. And then he said, in movies. And we were like, yes, in movies, and then he said, like analyze this. And we were like, like analyze this, and then he died after that. I'm not kidding. Dead. That was his last minute advice. He really wanted to be an actor too, right? He did he really wanted to be an actor. He wished he would have been an actor and he loved the movies and Judy Garland and Rosalind Russell and he would have liked to have gone to the Cleveland playhouse and he loved writing and I use a lot of his writing in the book and yes he said he didn't have the confidence. So in a lot of ways I went and did that for him and I kind of wanted to give him that life and he got to live that life and see that through me and it was deeply gratifying. To change the mood a little bit, do you still watch Saturday Night Live? I do. I just had dinner with Lorne. I'm still so close to him and yes, I still watch it. My favorite part of the show is the good nights. I like watching the host and all the cast. I like to think what kind of mood are they in? And oh look, she's talking to him and they look so happy and they're going to go to the party so you have the good nights are my favorite and I really enjoy it and I just have such great feelings about the show and I still am so grateful that I got that opportunity. My Shannon, it has just been wonderful to talk with you. I'm so grateful that you've come on our show. Terry, thank you so much. This is such an honor to talk to you. You are one of my favorites. And thank you so much. Molly Shannon's new memoir.

"Thought, let's go try to do it. And we told my friend Anne's brother Tom, we're going to try to hop a plane, and he's like, yeah, you're never going to get away with that. Yeah, and Anne was 11, and I was 12. And we thought, well, if it doesn't work out the plane will go take a ballet class with mister Martin, our ballet teacher. So we had pink leotards on and pink skirts and we looked like little prima ballerinas, and we took the rapid transit in Cleveland out to the Cleveland Hopkins airport, and we saw two flights, one to San Francisco, went to New York. And we were like, let's go to New York. And you know, this is like 1976, so it was before there was any security, so we went right up to the gate. And we just looked so innocent with our hair and buns and our little pink leotards and pink tights and pink skirts. And we said, would it be okay if we go say goodbye to my sister on the plane, and she was like, sure, ladies, go ahead. So we sprinted down the runway. And then we ducked down in a seat and put our heads down and then the stewardess are given us permission to get on forgot about us. And then all of a sudden you could see the plane backing up and getting ready to take off and we didn't say anything. We were just silent holding one another's hands saying Hail Mary's like how Mary full of graceful orders are 50 plus and I thought that one looks blessed for them. And then you see the plinko. Up into the air and we couldn't believe it. We were overjoyed and then the stewardess who'd given us permission to get on the plane came around to ask for snack orders and when she saw us Terry, she was like, she looked like she was gonna faint. She said, can I get you ladies something to drink? And we were like, sure, all the Coke ballot peanuts, and then, you know, we just enjoyed the flight. We were very afraid when we landed that we were going to get busted. But we didn't. And the flight was not, it was a pretty empty flight. So we walked down the aisle and exit. And she was just at the front. She looked like she was in a day so scared. And she was just like, bye, ladies. Have a nice trip. That was it. We were in New York City. You know? And this sounds like preparation for sketch comedy. You pretend to be something that you're not. And people believe you. Exactly, and people believed us. And it was a great adventure. And it was fun because my dad had kind of my dad had dared us, you know, he said, what a stunt, that would be. So when we got to New York City, I just heard about Rockefeller center on television. So we just asked strangers, how do you get to Rockefeller center? And it's funny that I would wind up years later working at Rockefeller center. But we just took the subway, we had to walk to the subway from JFK, and then we just, you know, we only had a few dollars in a bag and a change of clothes, so we just hopped over the turnstile, and then we went to a diner and dined and dashed and we stole I love New York t-shirts and it was just, it was a really fun day. And then we did call my dad and he couldn't believe it. Then he really did get nervous. He goes, oh my gosh, oh my gosh. And he called jolene rant and she broke out in cold sores and then my dad said, you know what? I'll tell you what Mary and I will drive to New York City and we'll come meet you from Cleveland and so then he thought, why didn't you just stay in the lobby and I'll try to get a hotel room and we'll meet you this evening. We'll drive right now and so he called hotels, but nobody wanted to be responsible for two minors without a parent and so they kept saying no and he said, I'll be there if you could just wait in the lobby and they all said no. So eventually he said, all right, you got to come back home tonight. And try to hop on a plane home. I'm not paying for it. Oh, wow. Okay. Is that what you did? We did. We went back out to the airport, and this time that flights were all very crowded. So we were at JFK and we found a flight back to Cleveland, and did the same stunt, told the stewardess we had to say goodbye to my sister, and this time it just did not work because the flight was sold out. And people would say, excuse me, this is my seat, and we kept getting so we gave up. That was not working, and we did claw from the airport, and he did get us to take his home and he paid for it. And he said, all right, I'll pay for it, but you have to pay me back with your babysitting money. I'm also trying to picture the two of you. You and your best friend walking around Manhattan in your tutus. 12 year old Tutu. Exactly. It was like two little prima ballerinas on a crime spree in New York City. My guest is Molly Shannon, her new memoir is called hello Molly. We'll hear more of our conversation after a break, and Ken Tucker will review the new album by the duo he describes as indie rock's newest obsession. I'm Terry gross, and this is fresh air weekend. Let's get back to my interview with Molly Shannon, who became famous as a cast member on SNL. She costars in the HBO series the white lotus, and in the new HBO Max series, the other two, she costars on the showtime comedy series. I love that for you, which will premiere later this month. She plays a home shopping cable host who's mentoring, the character played by SNL alum Vanessa bear. Molly Shannon has a new memoir, it's called hello Molly. You introduced your father to the folks on Saturday Night Live. They got to know each other. It sounds like people really liked your father a lot. I think it was through your agent who was gay. That you found out your father was gay. So how did he know but you didn't? Steven levy, my longtime manager, his father died when he was young. He developed a close connection with my father and my dad became kind of a surrogate dad to him. And they would talk on the phone a lot. And Steven said to my dad, Jim, you're gay. You're gay. And my dad probably am. So Stephen would send him gay porn and my dad was oh my God, he was like a rap wrap it up in a paper bag in case somebody opens it and you know he's like what 72 at this point and so my dad showed up for my last SNL it was my very last week and I think at the time he had cancer but wasn't telling anyone. And so he had been sober for a while. He was a recovering alcoholic, but he slipped that time coming into New York. And he flew into New York and stopped at the bar at the Grand Central and got drunk, and then he showed up to my apartment. And I was so disappointed at him 'cause I was, this is my last week of the show and I was like, you're drunk. And then I kicked my dad out of my apartment and made him stand a hotel. And then I talked to Steven and my manager and I said, oh, I'm so upset. He was drinking. I'm just disappointed. And it's stressful. It's my last week. And Steven kept defending my father. He said, you know, he's given up so much for you girls. And I was like, what do you mean? He's given up so much. And then I said, are you saying he's gay? And he was like, I don't want to say anything. He's going to tell you, and I couldn't believe it, Terry. I was like, what? And my dad and I ended up making up the next day. And because I had this new information, all the pieces of the puzzle from my childhood of the anger and, you know, some of the acting out came together and I felt compassion. I was like, oh my God, he's gay. Oh my God, oh my God. It felt like a flooding in of understanding, compassion. This new information blew my mind. I couldn't believe it. You know, your manager told you that your father was going to tell you that he was gay, but your father didn't tell you, so you ended up asking him if he was gay, asking your father. Did you like rehearse that in your mind? Like how you were going to go about asking him this question that risk making him so uncomfortable because he had withheld.

"Radio show delicious dish. She joined SNL in 1995 and stayed for 6 seasons. Shannon starred in the film year of the dog costarred in the HBO series enlightened and the white lotus all created by Mike white, costars on the current HBO Max comedy series the other two, and will costar in the new showtime series, I love that for you, which premieres later this month, starring SNL alum Vanessa Bayer. Shannon's new memoir, called hello Molly, helps explain the pain and loss that fueled a lot of the drive and commitment in her comedy career. The book begins when she was four and her father was driving the family home from her cousin's high school graduation party. Her father had been drinking at the party and crashed into a pole. Her mother, her three year old sister, and a cousin were killed. Her 6 year old sister had a concussion, Molly had a broken arm, their father was hospitalized, with a tube in his throat, so he could breathe and to crushed legs. Before the accident, Molly Shannon's mother taught her how to make Friends, apparently she makes friends very easily. By the time I finished the book, I wanted to be one of those friends. But I'll settle for an interview. Molly Shannon is such a pleasure to have you on our show. I really love your memoir. Thank you, Terry. Is the accident something you talk much about before writing the book? Uh, yes, I did talk about it. Not right away. It would have to be somebody who I'm pretty close to. But yeah, so but sometimes if you give that information too quickly, it can be confusing or too much for people, but certainly as I would get to know somebody. Yes, I would be open about talking about that. You were unconscious after the accident. Do you remember what you saw when you came to you? Yeah, I just remember there were sirens and I could hear a lot of people talking and a large crowd stopped and formed around the car and people were helping trying to pull people out of the car and they put my sister Mary and I on a stretcher and I remember feeling her body next to mine and they put a blanket over us and it felt really itchy and I just remember being confused like what is going on and we had been sleeping in the back of the station wagon and then they took us to the hospital and they cut our clothes off and they brought us in and gave us all these tests like are the lights on the lights off and touching parts of our body to make sure we could feel our feet and different things like that a lot of tests. In the hospital you kept asking for your mother and no one would explain that she had died your aunts and uncles didn't know how to tell you your father was in the hospital with a two business throat in a different room, how are you finally told? What happened was that night too I was four, so I had I was in training underwear and I remember not wanting to go to the bathroom, my bed and I was calling for my mom, but nobody would come and then I was like, oh, whatever. I felt despairing and I wet myself and I just kind of gave up. And then we woke up in the morning and there were people coming in with gifts and lots of toys and there were relatives, but I was like, where's my mom? You know, where's Katie? Where's my dad? And I looked to my sister to be kind of my guidepost, but she was just looking out the window and, you know, crying, you know? So I just was like, in my head, I made up. Oh, my mom must be with Katie in the baby section. Maybe she has maybe Katie's on a different floor with the babies. My little sister was three. And then finally, I think an ant did tell us that my mom and my sister had died. She said they've gone, they've gone to heaven. You know, like it was really good news, you know? I don't know if when I was four, I knew what death was. Did you know what death was? No, I did not understand it all. And my immediate feeling was like, it was very confusing. And she was trying to make it kind of positive. They're in heaven, you know, they're with God and the angels. And I was just like, well, I felt like, could we go see them and could we fly there? Or could we take a hot air balloon or could we go up with the birds? Can we see them? Like, I just couldn't accept it. And then I just wouldn't really believe it and I went into a fantasy just waiting for them to come back, making up that they were still somewhere else still alive. I don't think I could have felt how sad it was because I think it would have annihilated me. I think you also felt that your mother and your younger sister had gone to heaven and but they didn't think enough of you to take you with them. Yeah. Did that thinking that thought that you weren't good enough to be taken? To that affect yourself image for a long time? Yes, it did. I felt I felt very defective and I felt like, well, they must, my mom must have left because I'm bad. I think children of that age are very self centered, so there's no way that I could understand it other than just being very self focused and thinking, I must have done something wrong to make her leave. So I must be bad. Your father had to become the primary parent, but, you know, his legs were crushed. He wore, I think he wore a leg brace for the rest of his life. Yes. And it took him a long time to recover. It took him a long time to be able to walk again. You stayed with an aunt and uncle for a while. So suddenly your father was like the single parent of two young children still recovering from his own injuries, did he know how to be a primary parent? Was he able to learn how to do that? That was really hard because he was in the hospital for a long time, and then recuperating my aunts. He had to learn how to walk again. And he had a walker that he used for, I think, like the first year to just slowly learn how to walk around her living room. And then a brace on his leg. So that recovery was slow. And then we finally moved back to our original house. And yeah, it was hard for him. He would get stressed out about cleaning and cooking, but he was a very hands on full-time parent. He was able to be with us all the time. He invested in double houses in Cleveland, so he would go and collect the rent, but he could take us to school and be home after school and take me to piano lessons and so he did do a really good job. He was very mischievous in ways that didn't always seem healthy to me when I was reading your book. You take you to a store and then to make you laugh, you'd undress the mannequins and throw their wigs on the floor. And I thought, do you know that's really a childish thing to do that's not setting a very good example for yes, it was not. Yeah. So looking back at it in retrospect, what do you make of that? Well, that particular example, yeah, that was a little crazy, but he would want to make us laugh. So he would key had a lot of fun parenting he was silly. He would turn a lot of stuff into games. Like if we went to a candy store, just my dad and me, he would say Molly, how about if we pretend when we go into the store that I'm blind? And I was like, okay. So everything was like a game.

"Let's get back to my interview with Delia ephraim, her new memoir is called left on tenth, a second chance at life. A new form of bone marrow transplant saved her life after she was diagnosed with a deadly form of leukemia, the same disease that killed her sister Nora ephraim. The real horrible part of this treatment isn't the transplant per se. It's the fact that they have to basically kill your immune system. So your immune system doesn't fight, the cells that you're given during the transplant. That is absolutely corrupt. So they dose you with like, you know, it's like the atom bomb of chemo. About a fair comparison. And that's a good description. It was very brutal. I mean, I did feel I was in the major leagues when I began to get that chemo. It's really, there was one particular one that's called melphalan, which I mean, you have to you have to keep your self you have to ice your throat all the way through for an hour before during and for an hour after when it's being infused into you.

Concerned Women for America's Penny Nance on the Lia Thomas Saga
"Friend penny Nance, who's the president and CEO of concerned women for America. So penny, you've written this piece that's talking about the current madness of this gigantic man who calls himself a woman destroying women in swimming competition. Again, there's a part of me that can't help but find it funny. It's like, are we kidding? Like it's sort of seems so preposterous, but then I just wonder what happened to the actual men who are the fathers of these young women who are not standing up to the craziness and saying this is ridiculous. This has to stop. Well, a couple of things. And you're talking about a young man whose name is he's changed his name from will Thomas Delia Thomas. He was a collegiate swimmer for University of Pennsylvania as a man. The men's team. He was ranked at number 462. He now has taken hormones and has transitioned. He says that he's a woman, and he must compete on the women's team. And the coaches are like, great. We're going to win. And guess what? He's smoking all the women. He is finishing a full minute ahead of the other competitors. He goes from number 462 to first. And this week, Eric, he is competing in the NCAA championship at Virginia or excuse me. Georgia Tech and he's going to win and he's going to break he's broken the records of women. He's taken their trophies. He's going to be first. And women who are competing against him even women on his own team have been told, do not speak out. If you speak out, you will be punished. And so we have women who are coming forward to us, by the way, can someone for America, and breaking news here is getting ready to file a civil rights action against University of Pennsylvania. The Department of Education on the behalf of young women whose trophies are being taken.

"Delia ephron on finding love again in her 70s by annabelle gutterman. Delia ephron is aware that her story sounds like it's straight out of a movie. First, over the span of just a few years, the novelist and screenwriter suffered a crushing amount of loss. Her sister and collaborator, the acclaimed filmmaker and writer, Nora Ephron, died of cancer in 2012. Three years later, she also lost her husband. Then in the months after her husband died, ephron attempted to cancel his landline and accidentally crashed her Internet. She wrote about her heinous experience with Verizon customer service. In a New York Times op-ed that resonated with a psychiatrist named Peter, who had also lost his spouse. Peter wrote efrain an email, reminding her that they had already met. Nora had set them up 54 years earlier. Ephron didn't remember, but that didn't matter. Soon enough she was smitten. The co writer of you've got mail suddenly had a new love story of her own to navigate. In her forthcoming memoir, left on tenth, a second chance at life, out April 12th. Efron describes their whirlwind romance and the unexpected news that quickly changed everything. Efron learned four months after meeting Peter that she had been diagnosed with AML an aggressive form of leukemia. Everything big that could happen to me happened in a very short time, ephron says. After undergoing a lifesaving stem cell transplant and navigating the depression that followed, Efron decided to enlist a friend in helping her compile the emails, text exchanges and notes she had taken during those turbulent years. The result is a book that navigates the weightiest of topics, death, love, sickness and survival in Efron's signature, heartfelt, and humorous voice. The writer spoke to time about her illness and recovery. The importance of being open to love at any age and why emails are so romantic. Time left on tenth chronicles your leukemia diagnosis in 2017. 5 years after losing your sister Nora to the same cancer. Throughout the book, you repeat this mantra. You are not your sister. Do you still find yourself saying that? Efron. I never said that to myself until I got sick and my doctors began to say it. They wanted me to believe that I could survive. Nora and I were so close, being a younger sister I tried to do everything she did when I was young. So the idea that they were saying to me, you are not your sister, and I had to believe that maybe to survive, it was mind-blowing. I felt like I was betraying her. All they really meant was your disease under a microscope is different from Nora's, so you can have a different outcome, but they knew how much my mind was bound up with my sister. It was empowering and it was traumatic. Both things at once. You describe in vivid terms what it was like to fall into a deep depression after your stem cell transplant. What was it like to revisit that dark period in your life? It's a very bleak place to be to be intensely depressed. You can't be allowed by anyone to make decisions for yourself when you're depressed like that. Peter knew he could not let me make a decision and my doctors knew that I was not going to be in control. The most important thing is to let people who love you, take care of you. I'm embarrassed to say this, but it was so joyful to write this book because I was able to take control of it. I was able to get to the other side of it. Speaking of joy, you also tell the story of falling in love with Peter after losing your first husband to cancer shortly before your diagnosis. You wrote this about the first time you spoke with Peter on the phone. We were both 72 and age meant nothing. How did you come to realize that? Life is about being alive to things, right? With me, I didn't have a choice. I just fell in love. I must have been open to it. Some people are and some people aren't and having had a really wonderful marriage made me more trusting. I knew what it was like to fall in love. My mind was on Peter all day. I could feel the chemistry through the bone. We were emailing a million times a day. You might not know this, but there is a great little RomCom movie about emails. What is it about emails that can be so romantic? Oh, they're playful and very spontaneous. It's a little bit more than a text. It's something you can shape. It's not more romantic than endlessly talking at night on the phone, but there's something about that feeling. You've got mail. Your book beautifully blends these high wonderful feelings with the very real darkness of loss. How is death changed your relationship with love? We were 72 when we met. It's right there. Death is all around us, all of the time. It some sort of defiance of it, as well as just thinking that you want to get every single thing out of life while you can get it. Peter makes every day better. It's different to be older and fall in love. I know who I am. One of the hardest things about falling in love when you're younger is, you're also trying to figure out everything else..

They're finally getting their due in the 19 twenties, the Russian physicist Leon Thurman, debuted and electronic instrument that could be played without any physical contact. Musician stood in front of a box and wave their hands over antennas summoning otherworldly sounds seemingly from thin air. Experiment might have been a passing novelty, if not for the late Clara Rock quarry Ah, virtuoso who, well concert hall audiences and helped refine the instruments design music. It was not suspected, as she recalled in the 1992 interview with public radio station W Q. X are there was no way of breaking the sound. You couldn't make the cut that you couldn't make separation.

When most people think of electronic music in most cases, they'll picture men pushing the buttons knobs in the boundaries. So one of the things that really drew me to the story was that this was a story of women being enabled by new technology robbers.

Five years later, Wendy Carlos took the first commercially available keyboard base of the Sizer to the general public. She introduced the instrument she helped Robert Mode design on her album switched on Bach, which sold more than a million copies. At the same time, female composers continued working on their own music. Juilliard trained Laurie Spiegel says Elektronik Instruments helped them bypass creative and professional obstacles and give voice to their compositions themselves. It was like looking the way a painter or a writer works. You were working on the actual work itself. You were being a piece of music out of sound that you could then play for somebody else. Instead of just having a piece of paper that you then needed someone else to go and perform. As a researcher at Bell Labs in the 19 seventies, Spiegel made music using experimental computer systems and complex algorithms to generate entirely new sounds. 1977 Spiegel's work was included on the Voyager golden record launched into space to represent all of humankind. That, she says the achievements of women have often gone on recognized early computer programmers very often where women because it was considered clerical. Then when they began to be called computer science, then it was suddenly totally men, and it was for gotten their women involved in your early days of computers. History of women has been a story of silence. Of breaking through the silence. We shall not be rubbed any longer. It's beautiful noise.

Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden and China
"The Wall Street Journal has a couple of reports detail in the rest of the sort of Bob Belinsky story one. The headlines has. Hunter Biden, Sex business partner alleges Father knew about venture, however. Corporate records reviewed by The Wall Street Journal show no record for Joe Biden. According to The Wall Street Journal. The Biden campaign denied that Joe had any involvement in this Chinese venture with this oil company or stood to gain by it. Belinsky said he was rankled by Joe Biden's public statements. He never discussed the international business activities of Hunter and other family members. He also cited nearly $5 million in payments. A Senate Republican report last month said that C E F C made $200 law firm has another reason to come forward. Jablonski said he took part in the meeting with Hunter, Joe Biden and Joe Biden's brother, James Biden in L. A in 2017 when they discussed the Biden family business plans with the Chinese, of which Joe Biden was plainly familiar, at least at a high level. Biden campaign spokesman didn't immediately respond to a question about the alleged meeting with Bob Belinsky, James Biden and attorney for Hunter. Biden didn't respond to requests for comment. And then they, of course issued from the campaign. This blanket denial. Text messages and emails related to the venture that were provided to the journal. Bye Bye. Belinsky, mainly from the spring and summer of 2017 Don't show either Hunter Biden or James Biden discussing a role for Joe Adventure. Mr Gillie are is one of the partners told the Journal. I'd like to clear up any speculation that former VP Biden was involved with the 2017 discussions about our potential business structure. I'm unaware of any involvement in any time of the former VP the activity in question it never delivered any project revenue. Which sounds like maybe just maybe the project was on the road, and then it sort of fell apart. Kimberley Strassel has report over The Wall Street Journal on this She says. That Bible in skis text message just show he was recruited for the project by that James Gillies. Our character, 100 associate, Delia explains in December 2015 text, there will be a deal between the Chinese and what one of the most prominent families from the United States a month later he introduces Rob Walker, also a partner of Biden in March, 2016 Gilyard told Bob Belinsky, the Chinese entity was C E F C Which was shaping up to be the Goldmans of China. Meeting Goldman Sachs. Earlier promise that's a month to develop the terms of the deal with Hunter at this point, Joe Biden, of course, was still vice president. Is the deal began to take shape in 2017 by Belinsky began to question 100 would contribute. Besides his name and worried he was quote kicked out of the U. S Navy for cocaine use. Killer acknowledged skill sets it missing and observed that Hunter has a few demons. He explained that in brand 100 is imperative, but right now he's not essential for adding input. Hunter was hardly visible through most of the work until final negotiations ramped up in mid May, he brought in his uncle Jim Biden for a steak hunter in Texan emails wanted offices in three U. S. Cities, significant travel budgets of statement for Jim a job for an assistant and more frequent distributions of any gains. And, of course, he explained, he wanted a hell of a lot more than 100 $50,000 per year because his ex wife would nearly take all of it. Hunter repeatedly made clear that his contribution was his name. He railed at Bob Belinsky that the CFC heads are quote coming to be my partner to be partners with the Bidens even remind him that in this instance only one player holds the Trump card in its me may not be fair, but it's the reality because I'm the only one putting on and putting an entire family legacy on the line. Abiding claims he never discussed his son's business. But of course there was that made 2017 expectations letter, including that 10% for quote unquote, the big guy in one text, 100 said, quote my chairman given emphatic, no toe a version of the deal. Bye. Belinsky suggested that the chairman referred to Joe Biden. Deal fell through on the Chinese and in the summer of 2017. So is it possible that Hunter was freelancing? He was going around that that Joe had spent years basically patting me on the head telling me to go pick up bags of cash if you could help him And then now Joe's out of office and 100 want help Mount. He was freelancing and every so often you'd run something my job. Certainly possible certainly plausible. Is it true that Joe Biden while he was VP? Probably knew what Hunter was up to. Yeah, that is, that is probably true. Okay, So here's the problem. Nobody. The media wants to talk about this story at all. They don't find it interesting or fascinating at all that you're Biden has throughout his career engaged in sort of the low level corruption that many public officials do. Reckoning, sweetheart mortgages and that sort of thing. Well, or at least a sweetheart land deal from from people who are interested in some of the legislation on the table when he was in the Senate. And NPR put out an actual statement before the Nile before the denial from the Biden campaign. Here's what NPR's public editor said. Quote. We don't want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories. We don't want to waste listeners and readers time on stories that are just pure distraction. As unbelievable that is a taxpayer funded journalistic institution, openly declaring that they simply will not engage, but they're not interested whatsoever in the story preemptively. To the media. I mean, so all this is the lead up to their bait, right? The media are obviously and clearly on the side of Joe Biden, which means that the debate the stakes are really high. Because now this is basically the last chance. For Trump to set the table for Trump to change the topic from Trump to shifted course of the race. The members of the media again. It wasn't just NPR. Many members of the media were over and over, declaring that the hunter by the story was not, in fact a story. They kept a clean without any evidence whatsoever that it was Russian disinformation.

Contributors dr julia. It's good to see you so the travel over the weekend was exceptional. All things considered a lot of americans deciding that they wanted to get away. I wanted to see family. What do you make of what that is going to mean for the spread across the country. And when will we start seeing that spike. Katya look back one month right. Look at california as an example. California is one of the epicenters right now in our country of this pandemic and the state lockdown order. But when you look at the cell phone mobility data people didn't stop moving as much as they did after the first lock down and you only have to look at the tsa data for lax the biggest day of travel during pandemic on november twentieth. The top forty four thousand people the second largest summer twenty third and so if what played out with the increased number of cases leading to the hospitalizations that you're seeing in december now because of the holiday travel in november. Were up on a hill. A really really rough hill for the next month as we see what's already happening in hospitals get doubled from the cases and hospitalizations that result from the december new year's travel. Let me redo this from the washington post. It's impossible to say. How many infections people have taken flights in part because those travelers may not have known they were sick. The cdc said in september that it had investigated sixteen hundred cases of people who flew while they were at risk of spreading the virus and identified. Almost eleven thousand people who could have been exposed on those flights. Now the airlines taking great pains to say that they have state of the art air filtration systems and the air within those plans are getting getting circulated so quickly that the spread of infection when you are flying is relatively low. They're also a lot of airlines. That are saying they're trying to spread people out but with that. Many people traveling on limited schedules. The planes are getting tighter. My question to you is. Where is the risk worse. Worst is on the planes or is it at these gatherings that folks are coming from. Yeah i think it depends on the plane or the gathering. I mean on the plane. The toughest part is when you're actually at the gate when all those hippo filters and not circulation is actually off. And you don't know the person in front of your or next us put their mascot right. this has been. There's been an ongoing discussion about getting travelers to wear masks. And so it is. It is during the plane ride. It is those periods of time. There is no circulation but that person as you said asymmetric what we know that asymptomatic carriers people who are infected could make up up to forty percent of the new cases the spread of new cases and so they may take whatever transmission they got on that plane to their gatherings and again indoors larger groups all of those elements as we've been talking about over the course of this pandemic are going to hurt one. One thing that i heard today that really struck me. Is that people who got infected at their christmas gathering that they now go to the new year parties they're actually going to be infectious and be able to transmit that.

Officials could approve 2nd COVID-19 vaccine by Moderna soon
"The united states set a record for cova cases for a second day in a row yesterday. Nbc news data shows more than two hundred forty. Three thousand new cases were reported while the covert tracking project report. Some one hundred fifteen thousand people are currently hospitalized with the virus. The us nearly set a new high for deaths as well. Thirty two hundred ninety three reported yesterday. Just five of the record number reported on wednesday but more relief could be on the way the united states is on track to approve a second corona virus vaccine after an independent panel to the food and drug administration recommended. Emergency use authorization for the moderna vaccine yesterday. Members of the vaccines and related biological products. Advisory committee voted twenty two zero in favor of authorization with one abstention. The fda is expected to agree with the recommendation in an official capacity. Could be as soon as today joining us now. Infectious diseases physician and medical director of the special pathogens unit. At the boston university. School of medicine. Dr in the he'd be delia. Nbc news and msnbc medical contributor. Dr padilla it's good to see you. How significant is the modern news to go in the back last week of the pfizer authorization. Although it's another tool in our toolbox moderna vaccine the advantages of it are actually store that much much higher temperatures making distorted most of the freezers bridges that hospitals and clinics usually absent additionally gonna be helpful in areas that made me maybe do not have that infrastructure to be able to store the visor vaccine. So that's one thing that the reason maderna's saw a twenty two zero compared to pfizer that some people turn down the vote was actually. The madeira vaccine is looking for Emergency authorization for those over eighteen years of age whereas the pfizer had the sixteen and seventeen year olds as part of their horton. Some of the members of the committee. The fbi independent committee had an issue with so few number of people in that age for pfizer. It's good news. The one thing that will point out that together with either madonna. Us little if everything goes plan that secured about hundred and fifty million a vaccination spur one hundred fifty million people. So that's about half of our country a little less than half of our country and so we're really still waiting astrazeneca's data as well as bouncing johnson stated in january. That's going to help. Fill the gap. So dr brasilia. How is this rollout going. As we hit the end of the week aired started on monday with those historic pictures of nurses being injected in new york city and the day later in new jersey and across the country. Is it going as planned. They make tweaks where the things that need to change to. Make sure this gets quickly to the people who need it. So for the most part it's been smooth you know. Of course got the winter storm here in the northeast and as far as i know hasn't caused any delays. That definitely sort of tells you the number type of variables that could be out of our control that could affect the future least particularly with the winter coming around. I'm getting my next the This morning at nine o'clock in our own hospitals in boston by smoothly but there are reports that pfizer saying that has doses in the warehouse. But it's looking for guidance on how to get the liberty that's one question about what's going to happen with the upcoming doses in the next couple of weeks because some hospitals are reporting. They've now been told by their state. There's going to be getting up your doses. So the the data about what. What exactly is going on. There is still here

Learning How to Forgive
"I don't subscribe to the idea people a- bad and I I don't subscribe to that because I believe that these inherent good in everyone. I think that crime It's all to be honest with you. Very relative What might be criminal in. Some communities are excused in other communities. Delia Muna was born in London and raised in Nigeria. Her mother is Nigerian and her father is from Sierra Leone. She went to college and Law School in the United States and then she became a public defender in Washington. Dc main motivation for me is that throughout my time as a public defender. I and as a Christian I operate from the presume that if Jesus swear on earth today he'd be a public defender. He was always defending people who were accused of various Nefarious activities Tax Collectors and you know Prostitutes and and and people that we will consider unsavory but as a public defender. I got to learn and appreciate that. Each person has a story and that my role as an advocate was to tell that story in a way that will shoot to the lead experiences to give voice to them I learned to appreciate the fact that but for the grace of God Right. and fat Human beings have the capacity for change today. We're talking about forgiveness. I'm phoebe judge. This is criminal I'd like to ask you about where you grew up in Nigeria and and how growing up. You saw forgiveness injustice Criminality in differently than than we do here right. So we're very very communal society and so compared to to the US where It seems that we exist in silos and a very much individual pull yourself up by your bootstraps sort of mentality in Nigeria we. It's sort of those mentality that if one person is going astray we all collectively are going astray. And so the idea is You know we rally people will rally around you to make sure that That you don't go astray and that if you do that there are resources particularly human resources to help you Sorta recalibrate Your life trajectory And that's really critically important. I guess it's kind of a flip the whole idea in on the head which is in other communities when someone does something bad it it looks bad upon the community. Exactly as opposed to here. Where if someone does something bad when this person must be intrinsically bad or evil and let's remove them from the society? Oh yes absolutely. You absolutely correct here. It's you did something you something that you did and in other communities. It's like well what? How did we fail? How could we have prevented this? And now that you have indeed some done something. What can we do to restore your humanity? What can we do to make sure that you become one of us The question becomes. When is enough enough? When is punishment enough? When can we say you have paid your dues? It's time to welcome you back into society because we still think you've got value. We still think there's much more that you can add to being a productive member of our community in two thousand eleven a twenty five year old woman Nimble Shonda Armstrong drove her car.

Her landlord leader said that she asked him twice in six months to change the locks on her doors. Delia Luna wrote about Louis Armstrong and other women who'd committed similar crimes she asks how is it that American society bears no social responsibility to support. Its most vulnerable members. In raising their children she proposes that we watch out for each other not just watch each other but really look out and offer help as she says communities in Nigeria. Often do she writes. It's imperative that the legal system take steps to foster a sense of communal obligation towards the most vulnerable members of our society single mothers and their children in two thousand fifteen delia. Muna was made clinical professor of law at Harvard. The law school's first Nigerian professor. She's also the deputy director of Harvard's Criminal Justice Institute where Third Year Law Students under supervision. Essentially work is public defenders. We asked her to tell us about the cases that stay with her the most and she says it's the ones where children are charged with crimes. She told us about representing a nine year old girl and she was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and she was charged because while Throwing ten from classroom. She picked up a book a textbook and threw it at a teacher. Miss the teacher. The book hit the wall The child was promptly taken to a The principal's office and when she got there she was then arrested put in handcuffs. She was transported at the back of a police car and brought to the courthouse. She had to be placed in isolation so in solitary because she was nine years old and I went into speak with her so she is tiny little person and I was trying to explain to her. What my role was as her attorney and advocate and she had no idea Just even process in what that meant and she looked at me and she said where's my grandmother. And when can she take me back to school and then she said to me? Do you have any food? I'm hungry and so there. I was trying to figure out how to advocate for this child. In light of the very serious thing that she'd been charged with I mean assault with a dangerous weapon. book But clearly this child at other issues that we're contributing to Her behavior in class that day and he really will have been a very cruel and capricious thing for the legal system to continue. Its prosecution of her. It's easy to forgive a child and to consider all the social factors in play in their behavior. It's not always so easy to forgive adult. Well that's correct I it's easy when you paint a picture of a very vulnerable child but what about those evil adults and evil men and women who do such terrible things well. The truth is A An an an evil adult or terrible adult just didn't You know pop from just didn't become that way. They've had most likely a terrible childhood A childhood where they will likely abused likely neglected. And so you have children who wants. That's happened to them will indeed grow up to be adults who then Commit crimes I don't ever believe that an adult just takes actions without something being the catalyst for whatever it is. They that they've done and so it might be easier to forgive a child but if you delve deeper into the experiences the lived experience of an adult I think it makes it easier to forgive them once. You understand what it is that they've been through The prism through which they view life and sort of. What's happened to them?
Freddie Coleman Show
What to make of Blackhawks moves on NHL trade deadline day
"And talk a little bit more about what the Blackhawks did we bring in Charlie a room only autos from Anna corona hotline from N. B. C. sports Chicago Charlie how are you tonight Fred you nailed my last name they're not a lot of people can do that on the first try well I've been I've said it three times during the show so I try to get it right it is actually the more you look at it the more it is exactly like it's spelled sell it all but that is I'm I'm sure I'm sure you've got a letter from cap though well yeah well I in everything we've all got lessons from cap have only let's be honest yeah yeah we generally did did the Blackhawks get get done what they wanted to do today I think the goal and Stan Bowman even said this in a conference call it should basically recruit some of those graphics that they gave up for the end you're salty on it and try to get a you know they got a goal tender in return in a defenseman prospect but I think if you put them on a lie detector test or some truth serum okay perfect probably would have loved to get a first round pick out of out of today is that the reality is the market wasn't really to their favorite like six six first round picks removed in the month of February and neither one of those picks removed for rental so the Blackhawks moved to other youth expiring USA then they got a second round pick in the end plus prospects and then a third round pick forgot to send in a little bit underwhelming but you know that's what the market dictated it's interesting you bring that up Charlie because I guess the question at this point that is do you think the hawks waited too long in determining whether or not they were to sell it because obviously they had a little run there you know in the end of the at the end of December and January what it felt like they were getting hot do you think they maybe put too much stock in the fact that they were playing well but you know at the same time they they were still on the outside looking in it when when you're finally you know got around to the trade deadline here yeah it it's a good point and you wonder if the the blackouts could have gotten more for robin Lehner if they had treated him earlier but at the same time went when they come out of that bye week and they come out with a big win against Arizona like if they had it really had quite off type vibes where this team was close to knocking on the door and then you go on that five game western Canada trip and if you take care of business there like you're you're probably gonna be about a playoff spot if you pick up six seven point six or eight points on that trip and and that the fact they only picked up a few things started to spiral then obviously the we saw a lot of trade happened last week where a lot of defenseman got moved in and you wondered if the Blackhawks were gonna pull the trigger on America if it's been deleted get out in front of that but they stayed patient and I don't know if they were trying to package and Eric Gustafson with another asset like a robin letter to try all the packaging of the return and try to get that first round pick that they're covering but unfortunately they weren't able to make it happen Charlie you mentioned letter there and I think a lot of hawks fans are wondering he he will reportedly he was willing to consider a three year deal with the hawks now you know I don't know if we've seen confirmation of that report but it's out there that robin Lehner was willing to potentially talk a three year deal with the hawks do you think that something that was truly in their interest or do you think they just don't want to be locked up long term with robin Lehner due to maybe a quirky history to say the least well I I'm not sure about it because robin Lehner is on record saying that he didn't want to take a discount like you felt like you wanted to be paid market value and and he deserves that what whatever he was asking for he deserves what he wants and if the Blackhawks were gonna offer him he offered what he wanted like he had every right to take it to and and has every right to take it to the summer and get exactly what he's looking for the the fact that if you know the Hawkins did offer a three year deal letter would have been willing to take lasted it do a three year deal I feel like the team would have pulled the trigger on it because I I don't know necessarily if they were looking to try a lot of money and term to to robin letter because that's just not exactly how they operate in it we see all around the NHL now teams are very reluctant to give big contracts to goaltender than in the Florida Panthers are seeing it right now they they find Sir David Gonski two an eight year contract worth ten point five million dollars and he has been performing this season so I think maybe that's also what is scaring off the hawks and wanted to have that type of security with the goaltender another couple minutes where's Charlie Roumeliotis from the Blackhawks insider at NBC sports Chicago the guys they get back for a for a letter is is that yes they need to get some names back or is to Bangor to be their back up for the rest of the season or what you know what's going on yeah I imagine so I read in Markham Sudan will be the Blackhawks is back up you know barring any injuries and I know the Blackhawks do have calling deleon Kevin Lincoln in downtown Rockford who have both been playing really well like Kevin like that had a really good start to the season that now his play has tailed off Collin Delia really struggled at the beginning of the year and now he's been really good so if you have two young goaltenders in Rockford but I imagine now comes through and it's probably gonna be grooms here said to either be the backup going forward at least for the rest of the season and then we'll see beyond this year Charlie do you think a Jonathan Tay's will finish his career with the Blackhawks there's been rumblings are speculation mostly from fans that you know he could be somebody down the line the hawks might consider moving if they they were able to get a hall for him but to me Jonathan tapes just seems like the type of player who gently down the Blackhawks want retiring in a Blackhawks Jersey yes absolutely and I I don't blame Patrick Kane Jonathan three Duncan Keith those core players I don't blame them for being frustrated like they want to win in Chicago but the the problem is if they don't want to go somewhere else to win another ring like their soul that and they have no movement clauses in their contracts read that they want to spend the rest of your career here in Chicago and they want to win the Stanley Cup again in Chicago so I don't see that it man it would be if thirteen is out of date senior retired Black Hawk that it wouldn't feel right if they if they went somewhere else Charlie one last quick one for you what is the biggest need for the hawks this offseason to try and get them back on track and into the playoff conversation next year yes hi it's tough because you kind of want to see how this you know they've been battered by injuries particularly that of the blue line with Calvin Han and Brent Seabrook and then Andrew Shaw you know I would I would sail and it is those guys need to get healthy first and then you want to see how your developments are going with Adam vocalist and Kirby dach but to me ideally like you need you need another top six winger like you need another top six four they have Jonathan Tate and Kirby docking Dylan Strome and and obviously Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat but they don't have really that photo type scoring winger that can help balance out the lines and I'm not saying that the Blackhawks have it all made on their depth on their defensive group because they tell but you look at the reality is they have five guys under contract for at least the next two seasons after that and that's not even including Adam vocalist and potentially Ian Mitchell so I want to say a top four defenseman but it just didn't seem feasible because all the they have all these guys tied up Charlie I know it's been a long day we appreciate jump around for a few minutes no problem guys thanks for having me
Scholars Strategy Network's No Jargon
Creating Inclusive Campuses
"Over the last. Few decades minority enrollment at America's colleges and universities has increased exponentially these institutions many which are still predominantly white. Both in students faculty administration like to tout enrollment rates as evidence of their commitment to racial diversity but to these numbers tell the whole story with black students still experiencing discrimination on campus and with hate crimes drastically on the rise these institutions of higher education. Are they doing enough to address? The problem. Harsh students affected by their experiences. There and what would it take to achieve not just diversity but meaningful inclusion for students of? Hi I'm Lizzie. Getty Erlich and this is the scholars strategy network. No jargon each week we discussed an American policy problem of one of the nation's top researchers without jargon in this episode. I spoke to Dr but Delia Richards. She's an associate professor of sociology at the University of Richmond. Here's our conversation Dr Richards. Thanks FOR COMING ON NO JARGON. Thank you very much. I'm happy to be year and so you wrote a brief for us. Then it's currently on your page on our website on how predominantly white college campuses can become more inclusive of black students. And I I want to spend some time talking about that today but just to start off. Tell us what made you interested in this particular topic and then in writing this brief you know you are a professor at a university. Our most of our members. But you're really studying what the university structure itself looks like. So I I have a five year old. She just turned six and last year. When I was on sabbatical one of the things that I did was to take a look at some private schools In the Richmond Virginia area and one of the schools that I took a look at were to Montessori schools. I think that they would fit her personality very well. And what I noticed with these Montessori schools is that at least a third because what is my sociology hat and I had a little notebook and was like taking notes. And I'm agendas. If I was doing participant observation I was kind of. I was literally counting. Like how many Students of color black students in these classes. Because for me as a mom right. It's really important for my daughter to be space. She feels like she belongs right arm and feels represented so anyway about a third of the classes kindergarten classes that I visited Were students of color. Which is amazing. That's not what I was expecting and you weren't. You weren't expecting it because of the demographics of your area or because of the nature of private schools or because of the nature of Private Schools Right. But you know my point though is that while about a third of the classes worse color only one of these students were black just one and so that's really gets at the heart of. Why right this kind of policy brief? I'm also going to kind of connect that to some of the work that sociologists have done about the role and function of blackness in the United States. And how how blackness fits in what we call the racial hierarchy. Like you know who we think Is that the top in the is the dominant group and who is kind of the most stigmatized and so one of the things that sociologists have written about is the way in which even immigrants white immigrants in particular have. Distance have become white by distancing themselves from blacks right or from blackness. And My colleague. Bill Bashar trailer has also written about this in her book ethnic project where she shows not just white immigrants but also other people of color on that the strategy that they've used to either make it into whiteness. Or at least you know proximity to whiteness. If from distancing themselves from blackness right and so there's definitely is you know the fact that historically Blackness has played this particular role and function within American Society of allowing people to know like who should they? You know does the. Where's the bottom? And who should I kind of distance myself from if I don't want to be treated like black people and so you know? Black people then have really felt the brunt force right of white supremacy and like racism in American society as a whole and we also see that reduced on college campuses and in kindergarten classroom kindergarten classes right and so one of you know at one final thing that out. Also WanNa say that one of the ways we also see especially going back to the kindergarten classroom also replicated is is in language right and so the concept of people of Color has become much more utilize outright and political terminology and in has its roots really like political solidarity across racial ethnic groups but one of the ways that I've seen it being used as you know folks might really mean to say black like they're talking about black people but instead of saint black people they say people of Color and so you know there's this evasiveness of like not wanting to talk about black people black people issues and things that are specific to black people and so this policy grief in some ways is a way of addressing this invasiveness. Because if you can't talk about it and you can't address it and to just add very quickly to what it also does is going back to the kindergarten example places like those private schools visited. They tout and they did when I was there like. We are super diverse. We are super inclusive. And then I'm like well. What does that mean for right? And then even when asked questions kind of follow up questions about what that means because to them that's just about like celebrating ethnicity so when asked questions about what what does that mean for my daughter to be in the space they would go to like me. Jamaican for example. Because I happened to mention that and how that celebrated now I don't have concerns about my daughter's ethnic background being celebrated can celebrate it at home. What I'm concerned about is how he's going to be treated as a black girl and being the only black girl in the school right and so that's also what the language of you know kind of clearly of color using appropriately does it allows you. To not focusing focus in on the ways in which anti-black this manifest right and how that impacts and excludes like black people in the US. So let's tell us about anti black racism on campus and in college students day to day lives. Yeah so you know how how does manifest in manifest in what's called hostile ratio climates. What does that mean? Any way? experiencing racial microaggressions. You know From professors from other students right. And let's pause really quick to define microaggressions because that's a useful. I think for people to know what we're talking about so you think about When we think about racism I think a lot of folks. Think about these big kind of someone calling you the N. Word and You know white supremacists than Salon and the term microaggressions really allow us to think about the every the ways in which raises them as experienced an every day basis and kind of small experiences that kind of invalidate on and make us feel small rights for example and. This is not a student example. This is more kind of like a faculty example being in a hiring committee where we're talking about being you know applying diverse being diverse and inclusive in our hiring practices and having a colleague say well. I don't want to. I don't want to sacrifice. Excellence and quality for diversity like as if somehow bring in black and brown people into a space automatically means that. Is that sacrificing that like. That's laser micro aggression. I've had conversations with students in my classes this semester. One student talked about Having conversation with a white professor where she opened up and was vulnerable about why she was afraid to talk in class and that she experiences where you know she's experienced racism from our professor is going to undermine kind of minimizing her experiences with racism. And this professor said to her. I don't see race. The classic everyone out there who feels like Sega and so here. We have the student who is opening up to a professor to say. This is why I see in your class. This is why I don't talk. I don't want you know because of the negative experiences that have had kind of targeted in the past That's why I feel not safe enough to talk your class. And she's opening up right onto this person. Dispersants basically invalidating that experience. I don't see like race. I don't see that's like I don't see you You know where you know. That could very well have endured some. You know insensitive statements from that very professor so that means that. You're not even willing to acknowledge that. Think about the ways in which you own accents might be detrimental to the students. You're not even open to saying I've never thought about that before these things it's also had students talk to me about you know coming into a classroom and no one sitting next to them right like all. The White Students Guide finding space with other folks but not sitting next to them. And I have to say that I have faculty of also said that about being in faculty faculty meetings and sitting down and the White Faculty like you know. Forty them like the plague but this is about students in any case. So there's there's there's not students licensed in particular maybe not wanting to work with them on projects or you can stay work with them on projects they see them outside of class. Act like they. You know they're invisible

Classics for Kids
Musical Sleigh Rides
"Hello I'm Naomi. Lewin welcomed the classics for kids. Kids before there were cars. The best way to get around in the winter was by horse drawn sleigh today. We'll take a ride in a sleigh with this month's composer Sergei Prokofiev her copy of copy didn't write the only musical sleigh ride English composer Frederick. Delia is used real. sleigh bells in the orchestra for his sleigh ride a century earlier both comedies. Mozart did the same thing in one of his German dances In the opening of Gustav Mahler's Sports Symphony also features sleigh and. There's a sleigh ride by American composer. Leroy Anderson Composers didn't always use real bells in a musical sleigh ride. Jackie bear. Let the piano do all the work imitating bells and horses in the sleigh ride from his little sweet Sergei PROKOFIEV put a sleigh ride into his lieutenant. TJ sweet it's the section called Troika troika in Russian means three of something and troika also came to mean the team of three horses pulling a sleigh before prokofiev's Troikas sleigh ride gets underway. There's an introduction This gives you time to think of everything you need before you start out. How do you have your scarf? Your mittens a blanket. Have you been to the bathroom and here come the horses. You hear the sleigh bells screen look at various places along the way different instruments chime in imagine them signaling that we're passing something interesting. A fancy house for another sleigh or maybe. We're just talking to fellow travelers. I you hear the French horns talk soon and saxophone together together. Plus some brass. And we're off again lieutenant. Kisha who took this sleigh ride was a fictional Russian soldier from the eighteen hundreds. Can you think of the difference between what he might have seen. And what you would see on a sleigh ride I could you even take a sleigh ride where you live without bumping into a bus or truck. Yikes we just missed them. Yeah One more instrument joins us now along the way. And that's the Piccolo here. It way up high I maybe someone slipped on the ice time to pull the reins and say Whoa to the horses because the ride is almost
