"Show in each one of these things i think can be for a different audience. Of course we wanted to be rabin for audiences. But you know. I think many people can get different things out of it by filled because of the detroit references and people ignored the fact that there's a whole bunch of jokes underneath that and they like laughing. Oh i know what former jackets they just say farmer jack we ended up entire storyline. A universal thing is about so much more than that so i think what it goes back to is is we were saying like i said at the very beginning. It's like the show like view.

"To a war and then sort of like a war against something. That's not human and an automatically lost war. That person's changed. You know people go to war and they change and so like the kind of bring that sort of thing to this character and have him survive by a means or whatever may or maybe not survive. No spoilers but i thought that was like a great little moment opportunity to kind of play and humbleness. That makes sense. Yeah they sort of you can just imagine that they it makes him real more so than you would see or then you then you would assume from just some scenes. Yeah yeah that makes sense. So the other part of as you mentioned the young went When detroiters was on the air. I wrote a piece about detroiters and this other comedy central show corporate and described it as sort of like a battle between comedies. Lights are dark side and not like you guys were pitted against each other just sort of defining certain sort of comedic. Yeah i did assume. But i didn't want to project and i feel like the dark side is defined by cynicism and the light side which you guys truly present is like silliness that i feel like it's so deep in your comedy bones. I i don't deeded necessarily to defend it. But i do think like people are prone to take dark comedy more seriously. For a lot of the reasons we describe what is it about. You know doing a lot less more silly more joyful comedy that speaks true to you and you feel is worthy. Well i think that is what happens when you could become a youth adolescence. We think that cynicism is being adult in like every phase. We're like oh. I only listen to sad music and we're all black. That's actually. I'm an adult because there's sadness in the world and because i'm discovered sadness i'm now more aware of the world than you are who you've stupid child who only likes you know the color turquoise or whatever but i think there is an important even i sh- i fear using the word important when talking about comedy and stuff like that but i feel that like for lack of a better word. There is an important. To kind of positivity and sort of niceness like buoyancy and sort of positive energy. That it is it's healing. You know what i mean like we. The people need to see that people. There's nobody has the capacity to only absorb nothing but negative. It affects us. We we are what we take in. And so if all we take in is just as bleak negative like thing than we will then put that out in the world as well. Yeah it was. There was Oddly enough right before we started. I was looking on instagram. And there's a exhibition in new york. This french sculptor named nicky descent. Fellay i don't know who she wasn't until reading instagram quote and the timing was amazing which is her quote was. I used to think there were. There was a need to provoke to attack religion and the generals. And then i understood that. There's nothing more shocking than joy and i was like. That's that's that's i mean. I love this quote. I love this quote very much. That i agree with that wholeheartedly. Especially during like you guys air during trump and then like everyone's a comedy has to be serious. It's not like i think too. I think what it ruined the peace. It's like it's not in denial. But to defy what is happening and still be joyce is powerful progressive important. But it's a powerful thing to be able to take it. Yes absolutely that. How did detroit respond to being betrayed in this tone. You know like you talked about how you had his ire to show a differently than how it been portrayed but also like you're making a comedy show in a common show of your specific sensibility had had detroit respond and then regardless what did you like about portraying detroit through this perspective. Well i wouldn't a show. I came on well. I was crazy like the show premiered. And then we flew into detroit to do a a screening in detroit and literally getting off the plane. You know how. There's the guys on the tarmac. Who have like the wheelchairs and stuff bad guys like hey detroiters and i was like wow the very first step it. It was like out of a moving really. The very first person detroit saw me through detroiters came out was excited to see me about detroiters. You know and And then the online response was a little mixed from detroit because they only knew that we were from detroit. So they were like. Oh well what is this. You trying to treat silly. And i didn't realize but then like the more people washington more like. Oh this is just heart yet used a depiction of detroit being tough guy city and it is fascinating but we've seen that know it seemed detroit one eight seven. We've seen every other interpretation betray being that we are point was to to show another facet of it. Detroit because like the detroit also. It has drug dealers. Has you know all this stuff but also has my mom and my dad. Grandma like so like obvious. Things is important for us again. Like have that energy tool and even to this day like people from detroit are fans of it. Because it's like we we're all about representative and we've always been about representing trait in in conversation in lie in on television on all these things so i was very happy for the positive response in fact to the point where i was a little boy. 'cause sometimes people's reviews would be like if you're not from troy. You won't get it so don't watch it. I'm no don't do that. Tell everybody to watch your show where everybody has watched show. It's just for us. No one else nashville exactly. It's i think it's like detroit. It's like the same thing as before it there too certain grounding right like this is legitimate but like that allows you guys play but it is very much rooted and troy but but as a person who's never been there is like i think i understand that this ginger ale is the ginger ale that they drink in detroit like there. We did layers of these things. There's there's a layer of just straight up a tv show and there's a layer of it being a Comedy nerds show middle layer but being a detroit..

Yes and then we kind of push a button and it leaves our house you know by this integrated network of water tubes and you know but like nothing. There's nothing funnier to me. Then like a cat who was like snooty and they turn your butthole. You know what i mean and like ha there you go rug pulled out from under you can see your entire amos i can see your but as highfalutin as much of a majestic creatures you are. There is your asshole you know yes. There's like low brow poop humor that's like associated with like Like let's say adam sandler. Even though i love 'em sandler movies. But just like he's like when critics criticized these type of things they a adam sandler epitomizes that part because the most accessible version of it. And even there's like comedy snobs or like that but then there's like the sophisticated version of like poop. Jokes which is like what you guys are doing or like the lonely island and to you. Is there difference like do you feel like there's a distinction what is it. How do you define it. If anything or maybe. There's no distinction i mean. I think there is a distinction. 'cause there but i don't. I don't think it's clear as like. I think it's a scale right. Yeah can i. I do consider it to be like a great equaliser piano. I gets because everybody does it. And like you can. You can can focus on your focus on it. I think when it had even when it happens in alabama thing happens to somebody who's trying to act like it doesn't exist. Yeah you know what i mean. That's always what's funny about. It is a is a highfalutin society man with a monocle in his i who farts in his tail swept up and try to act like he didn't do it and he was angry about it. You know so on whatever scale even in its frazier and free sits down in his chair for. Its you know but then like i'm writing this right. Now yes any farts and then he acts like chair or for the whole episode to convince people that the chair farts but that comedy is elevated. Because it's fraser's accent. He's using so we so we saying thoughts instead of fart. So that works. Maybe it's possible. There's not like. I'll say the i've asked this question to a variety of people. Who do this type of do this type of thing people. And the closest i've got was scott aquaman when i asked him he you know everyone i asked. That's like like i like these movies right. It's like i you know. S any sandberg. He's like i like adam sandler a lot. He's the reason. I'm doing a comedy. Yeah but i think to scott. He noticed that it is a little bit more of a twist on the traditional way. You're getting that type of job. Maybe yes and. I think i think how about this. I think it's all the same joke but it's how you get there. You're not expecting to get to a fart joke in something else. You know what i mean Whereas like sort of part of the And i i love adam semi like grew up like everybody like if you feel like condition to be like oh a scandal Joke is low brow and like what has lowbrow and in even like all the every brow right hello to mid to high but you you kind of come to expect it in those moments you can see where those moments are coming and it's delivered where it should be delivered and the joke isn't surprise of it. The joke is the execution of it. Yeah you know with for us like it's gotta be it's a surprise and the execution but like you always make it comes as you in. You're shocked by it. You know what. I mean that is it is a perfect to get. Because it's like it's like a pop song right. If you do a really good pop song you people know the beats. You know you're going to do this and it could be very satisfying and you can do much more complicated version. That's still giving pop hooks but it's coming at a different angle but ultimately you're still joying the experience if someone singing a nice catchy tune exactly the same notes. Different beat behind it. This has been very thankful rethinking indoors. Ten accomplished about the so then. Oddly enough this is the also detroiters usually work this way where it's like essentially you have a simpsons like i act. That's completely not exactly related to the plot. And but you don't do a lot but this is one where it's actually episode about you becoming a sex worker. I city council person against how did that get there. What that represent once you realize you had the jumping off point of like. Oh tim bad ultimately were like. Oh we're we this ebbs about something about sam's character that we want to explore. How did how did you get to where you were at with the that story line.

And he shared his life story with our own Alex Cortez. Stephen Ross is a Detroiter born and bred until his parents dragged him against his will. Midway through his freshman year of high school from Miami Beach, Florida hated it down there, actually. And I kind of rebelled against my parents and E got toe little trouble. I mean, I mean, I suppose is studying, you know, go out. Quick. Give me a little bit, You know, I mean, I had a you know everything but study even though my parents really Try to be strict. You know, my father lectured all the time. As opposed because he was working and then he'd lecture me. I guess it didn't do any good, You know, but its ultimate I guess it's something e. I don't know. E wanted to get out of there. I went toe. My parents said. Well, if you're gonna leave, you don't want to go to school here. You have to go to military school. It's fed about four days of military schools that I go back to school, you know? And e talk to most of my friends. I mean, probably my background was probably different than most, because I've never excelled early in life, and I was We got into college because they had to accept me because I had a standardized test that I Scored well enough that the school had to take you and they flunked out two thirds of the freshman class. They tell you looking at left and looking. You're right. The person sitting next you won't be here next year and So you know, kind of a wake up call. But I also knew if I wanted something we didn't I wasn't doing anything for my parents. I wasn't left anything and they had nothing to give me. You know, so I knew Where was you know is either sink or swim? And then when I got to college, that's when I really kind of started to be able to do well to receive Florida then so I could transfer to Michigan and then law school and then I got my masters in tax law. Which I excelled in, and it's probably the best year of school I ever had. That really had found something enjoyed. It always get good marks. If I liked it, you know, I didn't like the subject. I didn't do very well. Confidence. I mean, you know, you have to first find your confidence. That you can succeed and do something well, Excel. Continue on me, as they say Success breeds success. Mean, teachers told my parents. They were wasting time sending me to college, which is really kind of funny, right when I look back at it now, So I mean, I look at myself I was the way it started. Life because it Probably spread about the least likely to succeed in my ass school class, you know? So you tell me how much teachers don't wouldn't so the environment of which were brought up on me Even when your parents As much as my parents emphasized that and I could see things Was really later that I really saw things a lot more clearly, you know, after getting his master's degree it and why you Stephen went back to his hometown to work in an accounting firm as a tax attorney. I was doing very well practicing law on it. You know, certain places really kind of funny. It's kind of impulsive. I'm in my office one day was, in fact, I remember I could still picture Was June's thing was true. Seven through 2/9 in 1968. The night before Bobby Kennedy was assassinated, and I'd watch it that night. And that next day you're wondering the life that you never know when it's over and thinking about that, you know, he was a relatively young guy and partner walks in my office and asked me If I want to go Toe seven are in New York said You know what? Haven ever thought about it, is it? I want to go. I think I want to go to New York for good. It's a matter of fact, I'm quitting a moving to New York. Never entered my mind. It never would. From my mind too. You know, I'm gonna think about leaving and I even thought about leaving. It just came up. I mean, like this so impulsive. Sometimes we don't even know ourselves. No, What's really what's going out? So you've been brought in the senior partner and may you know Steve's quit. He's leaving New York. You know, guys What I mean, Steve, you're doing great. Here. You're gonna be a partner here and blah, blah, blah. But I got bored and I could see how I was tailing off in my bite. That was just ready for something and that Z parked it. About me even thinking about it. You know, it's a lot of things you know, like we think we're in control of We're not necessarily in control of what we really don't know. It takes something takes a spark. For something to happen. I've told my mother, you don't know anybody in New York. I said, Hey, you know, I went there. I loved it. And, you know stories.

"Next step is that we need to get this stuff in front of a fair judge who can order variety different things. We don't talk about this enough. Judges have an amazing amount of power in this country. And i think for the worse actually at times but in this case a judge can say well. Why did you change the signature. Verification standards and the judge can order a county to say. Come back to me in a week and use the same standard. You did in two thousand sixteen or two thousand eighteen with the right overseers. That would change wisconsin. Just so you're clear just to clear and that's where some of these lawsuits work. Their ways up now would also be helpful to our argument and in front of court. As if we could start getting criminal indictments for all of this. If all of a sudden the bureau and the doj started to uncover what we have in front of a sworn affidavits of crimes. Richard hopkins crime no investigation that we know it from the federal side for the criminal side this woman blowing the whistle in milwaukee of granny farming the one thousand seven hundred seventy four percent increase in pennsylvania and nevada which is just a pure stroke of criminality no investigation whatsoever the nine points that the trump campaign laid out yesterday. That would help our case significantly if the bureau and the doj did their job or one of these state agencies actually looked into this and was able to find some voter fraud. A cash rebelled scheme. In fact we have a piece here. I want to see if i can find it so much stuff here. Where's that federalist piece. It's really really good at the new york times all over the place way too much stuff here. One seconds really good piece. it's it's it was a news article not of course the activists media didn't cover. Why does the wall street journal and the new york times not put it in there. Have it here somewhere. It's about a cash for ballots scheme that was uncovered in nevada. Here it is. I found it In nevada corrupt cash for votes scheme is hiding in plain sight the federalist and what it has here says the geo tv effort in nevada was blatantly criminal. And i'm a little skeptical at first. But i trust the federalist a lot so i kept reading and it said nevada native vote project posted on november third at six twenty nine pm. Mcdermott and a walkie or oinky voters dropping off their ballots and picking up their gas cards and literally being posted on facebook is. It's literally to differ. I i can't. I couldn't design the smoking gun. You literally have hands exchanging a ballot for a gas card. I mean they posted the picture. This is a crime. It's a federal crime punishable up to two years in prison and another facebook post spokesperson for the reno sparks indian colony bethany. Sam appears on video installing offering t shirts stickers jewelry and thousands of dollars in gift cards to voters some of these items appear to be part of.

Two conservative political operatives charged with misleading voter robocalls

"In August people in Detroit who were registered voters the trait is majority Democrat city. It's nearly eighty percent African, American registered voters in Detroit this summer. who had phone numbers in the three one three Detroit area code. They started getting calls that kind of seemed like crimes. And I'm going to play the call for you here. I will tell you before I play it that it is what you're about to hear on this call is unmitigated Bo Punky none of this is true but this is the call slash crime that went out to detroiters this summer. I'm. Not Ninety nine. Founded by Jack Berkman and Jacob. ooh. Mandarin voting found great but they do know that if you vote by mail, your personal information will be other public they that will be leaked assignments to track down. So worn and being used a credit card companies to collect outstanding debt the city even pushing. For they've only to try people for mandatory. I'll be connected door formation for the main. State. Where both by. Wear vote by mail. Vote by mail, your personal information is going to be given to the police to track you down for any old warrants and your personal information will be given to credit card companies to track you down for any old debt, and then the CDC is going to use that information. If you vote by mail to hunt you down and make you take mandatory vaccines that you don't want. Right that's all horse hockey. None of that is true voting by mail in Michigan doesn't actually put your personal information out there anywhere registering the vote means registering to vote but beyond that, how you vote doesn't matter at all. But when Sandra McNeill, on WWe, in Detroit got that recording of call they started looking into it. See if it was a one offer to see if this is more widespread thing. They started looking into it. So did the State Attorney General and the Michigan Secretary of State and those state officials held a press conference and they took the unusual step of releasing the audio recording of that call. So that other people who might have received, it would recognize it but also I think to put people on notice that this was misinformation and if you get this, this is not only wrong. This is potentially a crime they gave a stern public warning saying they're working to find out who was sending these absolutely false calls full of disinformation trying to intimidate voters they asked for members of the public to let them know if they too had received a call like this record, the call record, the date, and time you received it record any identifying information that came in with the call on your caller, id or anything like that. Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel warned that it is a felony under Michigan Law to deter or otherwise disrupt a person attempting to vote. So they went big with it. They basically said in that press conference five or so weeks ago you know listen you're targeting mostly black registered voters to dump all this disinformation on them to try to stop them voting by mail the you may think this is cute but this is illegal in this state and we're coming for you. Well today they made good on that threat tonight Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel has announced felony charges that have been filed against the two men whose names were listed at the beginning of that call. They have publicly denied having anything to do with this call. They've said, this must be some liberal group trying to make them look bad. It should be noted that callers received these calls also got caller ID messages saying the calls for coming from one of the two men's phone numbers. these guys are are trump supporters and conservative activists with a history of making flamboyant false claims at one point during the special counsel's investigation Robert Muller's office released a public statement announcing that they had referred these guys to the FBI after multiple women came forward to say that these guys had offered them money to make up sexual assault allegations against Robert. Muller. They referred them to the FBI for that. I. Wonder Whatever happened to that FBI referral. These gentleman also fabricated sexual assault allegations against Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buddha judge in the heat of the Democratic primary that allegation fell apart when the person they put forward to make those charges against people to judge publicly recanted and admitted that it wasn't true and publicly explained that these guys had put him up to it. They also tried to fabricate sexual assault allegations against Dr Anthony FAUCI. Seriously they offered cash rewards anybody who would say they heard Joe Biden using racial epithets right. These guys are a peach of a pair and they have been doing this kind of stuff to try to boost the trump campaign and to boost the trump presidency they've been doing it for a long time now apparently with impunity. But now they are facing multiple felony charges in Michigan Four felony charges all related to the election crime of intimidating voters. With a maximum total jail time of I think twenty four years in prison. But here's what's particularly interesting here. The investigation sparked by the Michigan authorities deciding that they were going to go big and go public with this turned up the fact that this wasn't just a local thing that had happened to one or two people. It wasn't even a Michigan specific attack turns out the calls out all over I. It was a Chicago Alter woman a local official in Chicago who alerted the board of elections there that she too had received this racist robocall. At her home in Chicago. Then it was people in Pittsburgh, and in Philadelphia who all said, they got this excuse me this same call. When Attorney General Dana Nessel of Michigan announced these felony charges today she said, the her office conferred with the Attorney General in Illinois or Chicago is and in Pennsylvania where Philly in Pittsburgh are but she says, she also conferred with the Attorneys Journal in New York and in Ohio because it turns out these calls have been going out to majority black districts registered voters in majority black districts all over the country in all in announcing these charges today the Michigan Attorney General's office estimates that eighty five, thousand of these calls have gone out. Just in the past few weeks trying to terrify black voters into not voting by mail at. Eighty, five thousand mostly black voters getting these calls saying if you vote by mail the CDC's going to put you on a list for mandatory vaccination that you don't want. If you vote by mail the credit card companies are going to track you down to find all your debt. If you vote by mail, the police are coming for you. Eighty five thousand of these calls. In. Multiple States. Over a period of weeks. After Attorney General Dana Nessel announced these charges today in Michigan. She didn't interview with that reporter from Wj, who helped break this thing open from the start with that tip from a listener. Reporter Sandra McNeill she asked the AG. The question that actually has been on my mind since I first heard about this story, which is, why did these guys have the goal to use their own names on this robocall? which so obviously appears to be a crime in progress trying to intimidate voters why would you put your name on that while committing that crime that's like robbing a bank and handing your real business card everybody might have witnessed it. Attorney General Nestle told the reporter from WWe Jay in response quote I honestly think that they've gotten away with so many things for so long. They thought that no, one would do anything they thought it wouldn't matter. Turns out matters. Joining us now live from Michigan is the Great State of Michigan's attorney, General Nestle Madam Attorney General. Thank you so much for being here. Tonight know it's a busy time. For having me I really appreciate your use of the term bull hockey I've never heard that before. But they use it. Bowl puppy and horse hockey are terms of art. You're welcome to use either of them. I don't even collect commission anymore. Does ask if I've got any of that wrong or if there's any important part of this. Case that you brought today that you announced today that I've missed. Now I think it was a summation. But what I think I'd like people to know is first of all, you know, yeah, that was twelve thousand calls that were made to the state of Michigan really centralized in the city of Detroit, the three one, three area area code, which is the city of Detroit. The thing about this, that's twelve thousand calls the twelve thousand potential voters trump won the state of Michigan by just over ten thousand votes. So I mean this is incredibly impactful and what I thought about for a long time. What is the point of having all these laws on the books in regard to voter suppression voter intimidation threats against voters if we never actually. Enforce them and what we know about twenty six sixteen is that trump didn't win because of the people who voted for him in Michigan he wanted because of the people who didn't voted all and that is what I think. These folks are trying to accomplish trying to suppress the vote and scare people into not voting action t during the course of a global pandemic, and we're not having it in this state just absolutely neck when you accept that these individuals can be so brazen as to attach themselves personally to these phone calls and think they can just get away with it. If they think it's funny that can joke around about it behind bars as far as I'm concerned. Is there a technical reason why cases like this are hard to bring? Obviously, these gentlemen have the. Office charged today they have their names on the front of this robocalled. They've since publicly denied that they actually made the robocall and said, somebody else must have done this in their names in order to make them look bad or prank them when it comes to the technical nature of proving that these were the people who in the charges conspired to and ultimately committed these acts voter intimidation is it hard to prove? Well. Unfortunately, for Mr, role and Mr Berkman Bud year ago, and my aunt established one of the first set anti. Robo calling task forces and so we were interested at the time in political related robocalls. We were interested in those calls that are made that ended up defrauding, he will and scamming people. So we already had the technology in place. So we knew where these calls were coming from and that allowed us to work with authorities in the state of California and thanks to my good friend. Attorney General Sarah in California who assisted us in this investigation but we have compelling evidence that these individuals committed these crimes and we're quite clear and confident about who the perpetrators of these crimes were. They just obviously never thought that we would actually end up investigate and actually charge but you know voter suppression is a very serious matter as Thomas Paine so So famously stated many years ago I voting is the right upon which all other rights are dependent. So if you deprive somebody of their ability to vote you deprive him of everything else in. Life and you know this has gone on for far too long. I think many people are tired of their scams. This isn't the first time that we've investigated these guys. As you noted, there was a an incident involving judge that involved the state of Michigan, an individual who lived in the state of Michigan. So it's not the person. I've seen their names. On a piece of paper in my office. And we're tired of them coming into our state and stirring up this kind of trouble by using false and misleading statements and trying to threaten or intimidate voters.

Dig for Victory

"To get to today's urban gardens, let's go back in time to the founding of the US, there were certainly major cities Philadelphia New York Boston, but it wasn't. Until the eighteen hundreds that more and more people move to cities and urban ization in the US really got underway. These are people who would have grown almost all their own food before, but now they live in a city. They can buy food at the market. So how many of them kept up gardening in their new urban homes? A lot of food production went on. On within city boundaries well through the start of the twentieth century, there were lots and lots of urban livestock, because people were raising pigs and cows and chicken for food within city limits anesthesia day as a historian at the University of Delaware, and she's working on a PhD about Victory Gardens. It's only really during the city, Beautiful Movement and the progressive era that city start passing ordinances that actually outlawed these forms of local food production in the name of cleanliness and sanitation and middle-class standards of respectability, because only poor people grow their. Their own food. The city beautiful movement was big deal during the eighteen nineteen in one thousand, nine hundred wealthy urbanites, all this rural migration and immigration, and of course, the rising inequality and poverty and tenements in their cities, and they were not happy. They tried to clean the city up. They built big boulevards and parks with monumental fountains, and eventually they also introduced strict zoning laws and chickens and vegetable patches were not part of these new beautiful cities urban agriculture. Something poor people needed. It had to go some cities overtime had already. Already banned maybe the animals in the streets, or even keeping certain animals within city limits, but this really solidified during the city, beautiful movement city started to enact ordinances that said no farm animals in the city at all and no front yard vegetables, either meanwhile the poor had more pressing concerns than how the city looked frequently, when bad harvests and economic fluctuations raised food prices, they could not get to eat. There were dozens of major food riots in American cities throughout the eighteen hundreds. The first urban gardening movement starts in eighteen ninety. Ninety three in the town of Detroit, because of this panic of eighteen, ninety three, there were lots of panics. In those days, the stock market was very new, very volatile and long story short, suddenly, basically overnight, forty three percent of detroiters are unemployed in what had been a booming city and the Mayor Hazel S Pingree I has to find some way to answer. The cries of his constituents. So what he does is, he starts the first urban farming movement, which is ironically happening at the same time that many productive activities within the. The city are being outlawed. In other cities, urban leaders didn't want farms in their cities, but they also didn't want riots, and so letting poor people groza food on vacant land was seen as an acceptable temporary band aid in times of shortages. The Detroit plan was called the potato, patch plan and it had pretty impressive results by eighteen, ninety, six seventeen hundred families were farming more than four hundred acres in the city, and there are letters there from local detroiters writing into mayor Pingree, saying you so much I was able to grow. Grow Food for my family and lots of the people that wrote in. It's heartbreaking, because these letters are hardly legible there in broken English. Many of them were recent, German and Polish immigrants who were taking advantage of this program to grow foods dot connected them to their home as well as to feed their families. The Potato Patch program was seen as a success, but it was never meant to be permanent in less than a decade when economic situation in Detroit started to improve urban farms kind of petered out until the next big. Big Crisis, which was World War, one, the city beautiful movement had stamped out urban gardening the Detroit potato patches were gone, but suddenly there was a huge need both for food, and for kind of coming together in a patriotic sense. At least that's how Charles lay through peck sought. He was a lumber baron from New Jersey and early on in the days of the European conflict. He wrote the US government and said people should be reason. Food would help them contribute to the war help stock shortages, and the USDA promptly said Sir. We've got better ideas going here for better uses of fertilizer and seed supplies so thanks for your input and no thanks Charles hadn't made his fortune by taking no for an answer, so he took that Fortuna and started a Liberty Garden Movement himself, and he quickly found a whole group of rich people who wanted to join him in getting Americans. Gardening again to support the war Charles and his friends created a movement. There were Liberty Gardens. Gardens on Boston Common, and in Union Square in New York and big corporations like Eastman Kodak and General Electric set aside land at their factories for employees to grow and boy scouts even had a garden at Grover Cleveland's Childhood Home in New Jersey. Even the government caught the Liberty Garden fever, and they created a school program to teach budding young home farmers how to grow food and support. The soldiers was actually one of the first nationally. Nationally promoted curricula in the country, the Liberty Garden Movement seemed to really catch the public imagination. However, there was no infrastructure for collecting numbers. The only source we have is Charles Lathrop pack himself wrote a book called the war garden victorious in one, thousand, nine, hundred nineteen, and he claims that the movements sponsored five million gardens which time when there were just over six million actual professional farmers in the US is kind of impressive but remember. Remember Charles is our only source for this number and he might have been biased. It's really incredibly hard to say, but despite its holds on the national imagination, it had nowhere near the impact of world. War Two Gardens in terms at share mount of produce ground, sheer numbers of people participating sheer difference it made in the global war effort, and that's probably why you listeners at least in the US you don't use the Term Liberty Garden. Gardens you probably say victory garden.

That's pretty smart to close the digital divide in detroit any more than just wirz from american public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed kim in for molly would not having solid access to the internet is like competing in a three legged race tied to a cow looking for work. Most applications are online need to check your bank account. Pay bills dell's check medical records do homework. It's all easier if you're online and getting a lot harder if you're not detroit is one of the least connected big american cities according to the national digital inclusion alliance less than half of homes. There have broadband internet that means hundreds of thousands of detroiters stand stand on the losing side of a growing digital divide. It's judge edmunds job to help. Detroiters get online and so them why they need to. He's he's the city's first director of digital inclusion and he says the problem is in just infrastructure. We have several internet service providers and if you actually look at the provider data ninety eight to one hundred percent of detroit is covered with internet access. Sorry issue isn't necessarily internet access internet adoption meaning. What are the bears the technology adoption that are causing detroiters not to take advantage of getting into the home costing one of the big barriers. We look at poverty. Poverty directly exacerbates the digital divide something like the digital divide. That's maybe not well understood by. You know a lot of people a lot of times. When there's this kind of different understanding that there's often like a different language that's understood like is there any example of things that people say that somebody on the other side of the divide just wouldn't get yes when i was on focus groups with public housing residents in cleveland and we kept talking about applications like oh you know download an app download it up and <hes> people were thinking i was talking about job applications and that's such as light example but we've just taken technology and integrated it in and we get it but people don't this task does not sound easy and not cheap. What are you in the city gonna do to expand access us. I've identified five hundred sixty one free wifi sites all throughout the city of detroit that make money to do. I mean i'll be maybe my salary went to knowing. It and these aren't municipal networks. These are your mcdonald's or tim hortons that random nonprofit on the corner that church that has it if you go to any neighborhood where there's a lot of children and there's no library present and there's mcdonalds there. Those kids are going to mcdonald's to do their homework and i'm not saying that the city is saying go to mcdonalds and do your homework rather. It's very interesting to see the way that public wifi and free. Wi fi is driving people to certain places. I would say what's looming over. All of this is the fact that the census next year is going online and so when i have residents namely my older residents gordon were like no. I don't be like this. Are you know i don't feel comfortable during this. What are the implications around the sense. Uh being counted. There's a cast value that it every single resident has mike figure wrong but i believe every resident <hes> it's worth eighteen hundred dollars a year to the census so if you're not counted managing ask them locations around that joshua edmonds is the director of digital inclusion for the city of detroit.

Well, thank you follow the book comes out in in a few weeks, and as you know in the past. I if I long ago gave up on celebrating book authors at top kale parties in New York. I live in New York, and I'm not much for coffee party. So I tried to turn book launches into charity events, and we've done some great successes. We've done things at the FOX theater with Tony Bennett and Ernie Harwell over the years you've been part of them and we have another one scheduled for October fourteenth. It should be should be the best yet. It's at the Detroit opera house this time, and I've I've called in some favors with some people that I know and onstage with me that night are going to be in.

From Chicago PD, and others and Ken are finding musical talent here in Detroit will be performing as well as some other people and all the money, we raised as you mentioned this going to help kids here in Detroit with literacy through our Detroit liberty program and the kids from Haiti with their medical issues, you know, from the orphanage that I operate the when we bring them up, you know, they don't have money for insurance and all medical things cost a lot of money. And so we were dedicating funds to that. And it's only a fifty dollar ticket at the opera house on the on the best part is you get an an autograph copy of the book, which will just be out for a couple of days included in the ticket. That's an incredible deal. The book is twenty five bucks getting it. Autographed is over and above. It is it is priceless for those of us who collect things like that. And love to have autograph books by the author. And this one's by Mitch Albom. And for fifty bucks, you get the twenty five dollar book, and you get the entertainment, and and the moving experience that I promise you this will be at the Detroit opera house on Sunday October fourteenth at seven pm. There is a five thirty VIP reception. You can go to TicketMaster dot com or you can call eight hundred seven four or five three thousand seven four five three thousand and there are some special sponsor opportunities. You can get your very own private box which could include twelve seats four of which may attend the VIP reception prior to the show. There are a lot of opportunities here to help a lot of people and all the money left over from this production. All of it goes to charity in Detroit for kids for literacy in in Haiti for kids and their health issues. We all lived through the cheek. Experience that became like your daughter and then passed away, but you brought her here for help. And now you have yet another little girl that had you've welcome you and Janine of welcomed into your home. Yeah. She's sleeping right now. She threw up after reading the American food yesterday. I think we have to do that a little slower. But yeah, she fortunately, it's not a situation like happened with Chico, which was the IP brain tumor. There was no from the beginning was a state of disease. This is just some serious surgery. Some urological things that this little nine year old girl and he's done. They can they told us in eighty nobody can do it here. So we bought her here. And again, this is one of those things like people Beaumont or helping us out. That's what they can right now. We're working with them. But there are still lots of costs associated with it. And so for these children's future, I started what was called the Chica fund to raise money for when these things happen. And that's what we'll do that night. And it's this little girl's name Babu Babu. Yeah. I wonder often, and I gotta go 'cause Ryan's going through the roof. I I often wonder if you Janine the blessing of you, not having children has meant that you've had hundreds and maybe thousands of children that you've helped well, we have forty seven we're raising right there. And if they have forty seven of their own and forty seven more, maybe you'll end up being right? All I know is it's it's the best thing I've ever done in my life and all children need help, especially those who have been orphaned in poor countries. So number fourteenth at the opera house with a cast of thousands. And the new book the next person you meet in heaven. Thank you, Paul so much for giving me the opportunity to bring this people's attention. We will..
