"Production of iHeartRadio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren bogle bomb here. More than 50 years ago, a determined young woman stepped up and created the iconic slogan, cipher, a which is Spanish for yes, we can. That would lift up the voices of the voiceless and change the state of labor as we know it in the United States. That woman, civil rights activist Dolores huerta would go on to cofound the national farm workers association with Caesar Chavez in the 1960s. During her nearly 40 years of work with that organization, huerta helped launch the first farm workers strike in the country, which kick started the fight for union rights and labor organizing in the agricultural sector in the U.S. and changed the lives of farm workers forever. Huerta was born on April 10th of 1930 in the town of Dawson, New Mexico. As she was one of three children and their parents were activists. Her family had been in the U.S. for 5 generations, and her great grandfather fought in the Civil War. Her father was a minor, farm worker, and union leader, who later went into state politics. After her parents divorce, horta moved with her mother to Stockton, California, where they lived in a community of Mexican Filipino and Japanese Americans. According to the book, Dolores huerta get to know the voice of migrant workers, quarto was a talkative inquisitive young girl, and her grandfather, nicknamed her see it lingua, a Spanish four 7 tongues. For the article this episode is based on, how stuff works spoke via email with Mario Garcia, author of a Dolores huerta reader. He said, when her family moved from New Mexico to Stockton, California, her brothers had to work in the fields, and huerta as a teenager also wanted to join them. However, her mother forbade this because she did not want her daughter to work in the fields. Where does mother did permit her daughter to work in industrial packing sheds, aware the working conditions weren't much better? A Garcia said, I think this early exposure to the harsh working conditions of farm workers provided a context for Dolores later working to organize these workers to do away with the more exploitative aspects of farm labor. After graduating, hort the married, had two children and began teaching elementary school. Many of the students were the children of impoverished farm workers, and came to school hungry, or missing essential items like shoes. It has tough works also spoke via email with Sarah Warren, author of the book Dolores huerta, a hero to migrant workers. She said that puerta, quote, was driven to do more for the children she planned to serve when she found out how their families were being abused. At age 25, huerta became immersed in activism, joining a local group run by Fred Ross, and learning how to become a labor organizer. Garcia said, as a young adult, she became involved with the community service organization or CSO, which was an organization mobilizing Mexican Americans in civil rights work and voter registration in the 1950s. At the CSO, huerta met cisar Chavez, who would go on to become one of the most widely recognized Mexican American labor leaders in U.S. history. Porta and Chavez began to work together for improved working conditions and wages for farm workers, who earned as little as 70 cents an hour at the time. A Garcia said, Cesaro recognized Dolores talents as an organizer. Plus her own personal strength. And so when he began to organize in the fields by 1962, he recruited Dolores to work with him. And together, Chavez and huerta founded the national farm workers association in 1962, which later became the united farm workers union. Huerta remained vice president of the united farm workers until 1999. Chavez and huerta had a complex relationship, according to scholars. From one point of view, they were comrades in the fields, working for better conditions for the most marginalized workers in society. How stuff works also spoke via email with Monica Brown. Author of side by side, the story of Dolores huerta and Cesar Chavez. She said, as Dolores once told me, they were comrades. They spoke to farm workers on the backs of flatbed trucks. Garcia said, Dolores saw herself as equal to Cesar, and he accepted this. Cesar didn't always agree with Dolores, but he learned from her. As she was one of the few persons in the union, who was not afraid to criticize the Tsar, which he appreciated. Weka and Chavez became most well known for organizing the 1965 Delano grape strike in boycott, a striking Filipino grape farm workers sought the help of the emerging national farm workers association, which largely represented Latino workers at the time. Huerta marched along with Chavez for workers rights, and brought together the Filipino and Latino workers on the picket line and led a nationwide boycott of non union table grapes. In 1970, their steadfast organizing paid off, resulting in union contracts, as well as better wages and working conditions for the grape workers. Host of works also spoke with Stacy sours, author of C, a puede, the rhetorical legacy of Dolores huerta and the united farm workers. She said, Dolores huerta played a big role in getting farm workers to participate in union activities to boycott grapes and other produce to pick at farms and become members of the union. In 2012, president Barack Obama awarded huerta, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, recognizing her, not Chavez, as the original source of the phrase, C seque. Obama famously appropriated the slogan for his own presidential campaign. But huerta's rallying cry had been used for years to organize farm workers and inspire advocacy for other civil rights issues. A Brown said, Dolores huerta first spoke, the famous words, see se puede, while speaking to a group of workers who kept saying, we can't organize the workers here. We can't. Dolores responded, C, se puede. Yes, you can. Huerta became an iconic activist and a source of pride from Mexican Americans and others within the Latin American community. Her organizing helped bring about the 1986 immigration reform and control act, which granted Amnesty to 1.3 million undocumented workers. Huerta is approaching her 92nd birthday, this April of 2022, and remains active on the front lines as a civil rights advocate and labor organizer. She holds media events and hosts ted-talks on how to speak out and become empowered through activism. Sour said, her legacy today is that she's become a social movement icon. As she's demonstrated how one moves from individual action and concern for community to working with other people on those issues, to creating an entire social movement. Also founded the Dolores hurt the foundation in 2003. The nonprofit focuses on empowering and training grassroots organizers in lower income and disenfranchised communities in California, including work on LGBTQIA issues. Although farm workers have more collective bargaining opportunities as a result of huerta's work, they still experience widespread exploitation, harsh working conditions and wage theft. In recent years, huerta has been vocal in pushing for immigration reform to provide a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, who constitute a large share of farm workers in the United States. A moreover, huerta continues to boost the civic power of the Latin American community, specifically through efforts to turn out the vote. The community played an important role in the 2020 election, turning out in record numbers. Soured said she's been very active in registering people to vote and getting people to the polls. Her foundation works to get people more involved beyond voting, such as organizing voters to vote. But also to participate more fully on social justice issues in their communities. A Garcia said, her legacy of taking on issues of social justice, not only in the fields, but in the fight for women's rights, civil rights, voting rights, and for world peace are all part of her legacy..

"Hello, from wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is wanica. This month we're highlighting indigenous women from around the globe. Today, we're talking about a woman who fought for and asserted the identity and rights of indigenous peoples against a backdrop of centuries of brutality and disenfranchisement. She reclaimed the instruction of her language, quechua, and founded the first bilingual schools in Ecuador. Please welcome Dolores ka quango. Dolores kakongo was born in Cayenne bay, a town in the northern Andes in Ecuador on October 26th, 1881. She was born on a hacienda, a Spanish estate that can be likened to the American plantation. Colonists instituted the hacienda system to produce goods by enslaving or exploiting their workers. Dolores parents worked in exchange for a small piece of land, called awasi pungo. Dolores grew up with no resources or schooling. When she was 15 years old, she escaped to the capital, Quito. She found work as a domestic worker in the house of a military official. While Dolores never learned to read or write, she did learn Spanish in her jobs. After experiencing rampant discrimination toward indigenous peoples in Quito for many years Dolores political awakening came when she found out through an indigenous activist named Juan Alba, that there were some national laws in place that protected indigenous people. A seed was planted, and not long after, Dolores returned to Cayenne bay. There, she married and had 9 children. Only one son survived the conditions in which the family was forced to live. In 1926, Dolores helped challenge the sale of their community land, setting the tone for future challenges. Dolores and the other women in her community became activists and leaders in a fight against the exploitative hacienda system. An agricultural strike that they organized in 1931 sparked an indigenous social movement that eventually resulted in the first indigenous labor unions in the country. In 1944, they founded the indigenous Ecuadorian federation. With the abbreviation FEI in Spanish. A shared space where urban and rural activists worked together in the struggle for indigenous rights. Dolores also fought for education for her community. That same year, in 1944, she also found that the first bilingual school in Ecuador, teaching in both Spanish and quechua. Dolores spent the rest of her life organizing and fighting for land rights accessible education and economic justice for indigenous people. While she regularly traveled to Quito to join protests and other efforts. She lived the rest of her life in cayambe. She died on April 23rd, 1971. She was 89 years old. All month, we're talking about indigenous women. Special thanks to Liz Kaplan, my favorite sister and co creator. Talk to you tomorrow..

"Military. Dolores jeeter was born on july twenty second nineteen thirty nine in central point virginia. Her family was of african american european and native american descent.

It was there that a teenage mildred met and fell in love with a young white man named richard. Loving mildred and richard began quietly dating when military became pregnant at eighteen.

Mildred and richard drove to washington. Dc to tie the not. The young couple had only been married a few short weeks when in the early hours of one july morning. Sheriff garnett brooks and two deputies stormed into the couple's bedroom and central point acting on an anonymous tip that the couple was living in violation of virginia law. The police demanded to know. Mildew its relationship to richard. Mildred said plainly. I'm his wife and gestured at their marriage certificate on the wall. This did little to persuade the police. Even though they had not married within state lines the virginia law still forbade black and white citizens for marrying outside of virginia and then returning to live in the state as a result both richard and a pregnant mildred spent nights in jail. They eventually pleaded guilty to violating virginia law. Mildred ann richards plea bargain spared them from a one year prison sentence but ordered them to leave the state and not returned together for twenty five years. The loving somewhat followed orders after settling their court fees. They moved to washington dc where they raised.

"You'd wanna hear she suddenly ready to recall repressed memories and the motif of hands with something that they started. We saw that dolores talked about. You can tell a person's life by the way their hands look now. We see joe's hands reaching there. I feel like if you're going to film a scene of a child being sexually exploited touchy and not fun to witness or probably make. This feels like they've done it. Well enough ever gonna compare. And contrast i think gerald's game did a little bit better with henry thomas than we get here with joe but you know that just felt like a more natural father daughter courtship. I suppose for lack of a better term than this where. Why take your daughter to a public place to do this like that. That was weird. Let's go to the ferry coming last you. I don't think he took her there. I think that she was working at the hotel in on the mainland and she just rode the ferry and not really explain what his job is. But i think he does go to the mainland to fix up vote. They're gonna talk about him selling parts and then later he's going to try to fix those parts and they're not gonna work. He seems pretty useless. Yeah i'm not sure yes. The ferry is just the location we've seen and it allows her to have a last minute change of heart and turn around and right into the climax seventy. We're going gonna. John grisham movies a bad. You know. they're all bad. There's a reason why we haven't done that. Richest backed john. Grisham likes to do these. Grandstanding things where yes. People talk their way out of ridiculous charges and here jennifer. Jason leigh speeches. No worse than time to kill you. Pick the worst john grisham. But it's you know the client the firm better than this time to kill his usually. Everyone's favorite john grisham. I remember the speech talking about it. Maybe he didn't think this because you guys had read the book but yeah during the speech. Selena's they loved each other. Mike oh this is going to be like a sweet lesbian love story earlier in this version. Were they gay. I didn't get that. That was what she was going after. And certainly in the ninety s that would have been very provocative yeah. I don't think they do go there. But i don't. Maybe i'm watching it. What those twenty twenty one goggles on. I'm like oh they were sweet little lesbians. I just loved each other and she was taking care of her. That's nice. yeah that's kind of how i took. It is when they said they loved each other. The way jessica. Jason lee delivers those lines. The way she says it does not make me think like sisters. They took care of each other. I mean however you want to call it. I just i no evidence of them like getting in bed together or anything. No is totally. How jennifer jason. Leigh delivers that line. That made me think that. Yep yep i'm right with you. Jacob because otherwise i mean i read the book. I knew that they were good friends. Grown old together and they were all each other had because abandoned by their children. Murdered husband's what have you. They were what they had. And so they were an odd couple geriatric thelma and louise but this entire speech by jennifer jason. Leigh like we said adult. Selena isn't in the book and dolores claiborne. Because she does nothing but talk. That whole book talks her own story and gets herself out of it. Dolores had agency to get herself out of this murder rap. A here selena's gonna come in and say all of these non legal things and say that christopher plummer has a grudge. And that's enough but again i saw this go down and so many courtroom thrillers of the nineties. This was how people like. See and still. Do i think i feel like these will probably make a comeback people like to see grandstanding. They liked to see guess. Who's coming to dinner. Like when someone's gotta hear up their ass and can give that kind of mine a log like people are standing on their feet like they really get into. I got out of it here. I was like this. I was kind of into this movie the whole way through. I've complained about it. Because i felt the book was so much better. And that's the damning thing about reading the book before watching the movie but the movie has had its flaws but when jennifer jason. Leigh is given the full spotlight to shine ou particularly since she's not a lawyer she's a reporter so like i don't know why you would know the legal. Why isn't there a lawyer here. You keep talking about hiring lawyer. Maybe she's a courtroom reporter that's what she covers. She said she's ben in enough courtrooms covering them to know what legal. There's there's a big case in arizona. That's why she wants to go to phoenix perhaps I played enough. Poll position that i can win the grand prix. Not what we need professionals and this woman has millions of dollars now so hire one. Do not let your daughter do this. I don't think they'll give the inheritance to her until she's cleared of the charges. The selena's clearly made the right point. They don't have shit e you know. She doesn't need to make this speech in the end. Christopher plummer is sitting there with nothing but malice because this is the one that got away. I've one eighty four my eighty five trials but this woman got away with murder and i wanna pin her on a for a murder she didn't commit and there's nothing in the evidence that would suggest she did..

"The firing squad. Can we just add rolling pin to the options for death row. That seems very painful. That is cruel and unusual. Take i know. He's made at a marvel but it would take a few wax. I think yes. I wanna make no stereotypes about the genders. But i'd just saying probably few more wax from woman. Yeah i mean. I don't know kathy. Bates bidding the angolan. All of that should be olympic sport. Right it is a frail old woman. Yeah it could. It could be a lot of fun to see all of this transpire. I make jokes because it's an odd way of coming about the idea that we are now supposed to like fear. And because we like vera now we can head into the waters of. She's the one that has the right idea on how to handle badminton. Kill them by murder. Yeah when dolores finds out what's going on in her home she will turn to vera and tell that sob story. And that's the part. That's lena is not willing to listen. She'll go ahead and accept that her mom didn't kill her boss. I think she believes that but she will not accept that her father was this abuser and again if we had had just a few scenes of him being loving That might have been easier to understand. Yeah during this whole reveal like we're gonna get another whole scene about life savings being stolen. And i get it. The the men didn't question the men because women suck and men rule in feminism and and the patriarchy is bad like so. We're going keep making this point. But this movie needs to move in like this whole like subplot of the stolen life savings and and men not asking other men questions like this film was more streamline. Yeah throw it in there. But it's dragging. They really should have cut the money thing but i guess they do have to give a reason why delivers would go to murder and not just fleeing she could just discover the molestation. Yeah but i mean. I i actually. I'm going to argue that. At this point. I feel like the calculations are right. I actually like all of this stuff. I turn to mom to see. This is where she's like You know she's like he's given into it when and she really enjoyed the scene in the bank a lot and we have a cameo here from the prison warden from shawshank. Yeah and we'll get joshing dropped. Which they're gonna lock her up and shashank. We've skipped over the fact that it's been oddly revealed why she know that joe has drinking at the table again and her daughter is making cs and ds and used to be on the honor roll and wearing a cameo pendant from joe's mother. Is that enough for you to put it together. Like i feel like it's a big leap. Like bigger than the leap. She's gonna make over that well. Kid is a leap. But it's a bigger leap the way this movie sells it to us. Because we see dolores and that cameo pendant at the next thing you know. Dolores is saying my husband is molesting my daughter vera but then later on we're going to get an interstitial flashback. That shows the conversation went on and yes. It is still a big leap to ask. Your daughter is my husband touching you but when you know your husband's a piece of shit and your daughter's acting very different and then you see some jewelry. Yeah then and he's not sleeping with you. i don't know. I don't my daughter to get the piece of jewelry before i suspect something man. That was the weird thing. i'm like. I'm like wait. Why did this jewelry give it away. I was waiting for flashback to explain that at any rate i feel like we're finally at the issues at hand it's nearing this stuff in gerald's game and i feel like this movie is found. Its footing taken awhile. It's been about an hour of all of this not very convincing gloom and doom. But i feel like the next stretch when we get the eclipse and the the murder and all of that. I feel like this is the good stuff i agree. This is the best part of the movie. Yeah i get into this film and yeah it's the second and i liked that the way that they did the murder they rebuilt this house on a sound stage so that they could blue screen everything and make it look completely artificial during the eclipse that. I think that's a good climax to the artistic douchebag the we've been seeing with the colors it takes it to another level and makes it all pay off in a way that no longer feels like douchebag ry so if i'm hearing you correctly you like the hawkiness of these special effects yes no guy. I kind of agree actually. I'm not calling that out. Because i think that's a ludicrous statement. I actually feel like there is something kind of nice about its artificiality. Its melodramatic if you will like the fact that i can tell that. They're not on that. Porch is no longer on location. And yeah the sky is changing. The dark stars are coming out. It worked and gerald's game and it it works here. It sets the tone for murder like okay. This is definitely when you're ready to kill someone when you've called them out from stealing from you and they laugh and then you say you raped our daughter and they go well. She's the slut you know. It's not my fault you go through with it right. And she doesn't kill. Joe with the definitive blows that she does in the novel. It all she really does is let them fall. Yeah get the thing from there is like you gotta make them have an accident accidents or the way that women are set free and like well she basically got. I'd murderer husband by cutting the brakes but this yeah he falls down a well maybe she leads them over in that direction but he falls down. I i don't know. I didn't really see anything. She did to help. Contribute except not go get help. Well she knew that it was there now in the book he lives through the fall and she keeps coming back eventually. Bashes his head with a rock. Yeah and that apparently was filmed. They realize movies too long as it is. It's over two hours. Women won't like it. No it's not the length it's so your mom. It wouldn't be put off by it. Yes yes and maybe it's because if we actually saw that kathy bates did pick up a rock and do the deed that we might have different feelings about her. I would have been into it. Yeah it's kind of dark spirit. That i actually feel like is appropriate. Where king excels right characters that are willing to murder and the bending morality. This is usually when his stuff is good. Why people would do that. Why this woman broke. I would like to see your break. A little bit more rather than watch him be unable to pull him but it is a good moment. I don't want to be too harsh on this movie. And not say that i feel like this is an effective scene and joe is really good in his performance. Here when the actor plays it realizing you set me up. You're not even trying to help me. You did this. I like the facial reaction and the vocal change. Yeah i mean. He's a good actor. I mean again. I just feel like in both in all these cases these people just don't feel like what they're playing like. I just don't buy. It's of like when i saw glenn close in hillbilly elegy at my guy. You're a good actress. But this is very theatrical. This is you putting on a stereotype trouble complimenting any performance in they're all pretty problematic but dissing the actors but yeah she is far less culpable here but salina's leaving now. She's leaving her mother. Like i hooked up your phone. I'm sending you a lawyer. you're on your own. But once she gets on that boat and buys that crappy cup of dollar coffee because you know it's a good cup of coffee for a dollar. She's going to have flashbacks to her. Dad made her jacket off on the boat. Not only that but her mom somehow figured out how to use that japanese tape recorder and gave her the cassette like to finish the story as well so Selena before she really understood what went down and now. We're expected to believe that that i mean that would be some tape..

"But i guess my point is i think they did this to help build the mystery like we get to that porch and suddenly she looks out and it does turn into those pastel colors. And we're in the nineteen seventies and we see people searching the hilltops and then it cuts back. What does that mean like. I did read the book. So of course i already know what it means jacob. You could tell us. Are the things that it's teasing that hard to figure out i've been i've been dying to to say this because yeah when we get this moment where selena's like oh did you kill someone else mom and then we're gonna flashback to that scene where the husband is is going to smack dolores in the back of log in color a fat ass. I'm like okay so he's abusive and he's gonna end up molesting the daughter i got it got it. That's exactly what. I mean. Like in an era where we're mtv generation. We know fast cutting jumping around the time line. You guys have already said it. You can do a lot more to hide the obviousness of delors innocence in the opening. If you're more crafty at the editing if you know what you're doing. This movie is footsie and and murder. She wrote but don't you want the audience completely on dolores aside if you played her as possibly guilty who is the audience identification character selena. But she's a she is a bitch terrible. Well i mean. Both of them are troubled and traumatized and so again in gothic like think of weathering heights when we meet all those characters. You're like what is going on in this weird as house. What happened to make everyone so fucked up. And so that's really. It's not about liking anybody. It's about trying to understand what went so wrong here that this woman tried to bean her employer with a rolling pin and the daughter's got a sack full a pill see and that's where i think this movie isn't wanting to go. It's the target audience. I think are women. Selena's age to kathy bates age and above. I respect both women more than this film does like come on. Yeah think of what you're saying here. I mean you can make plenty of plenty of women's pictures in the nineties and this would be on. Cbs this is what i'm saying. This feels like a stephen king tv movie. This doesn't feel theatrical enough. Some of the split diop's shots. They do want things. Make this feel overly theatrical to me. No i understand what. You mean about taylor. Hackers trying to be a cinematic genius with his transitions. I'm saying the quality of everything including the performances don't feel much better than a. cbs. Sunday night movie. Okay there i'm gonna disagree. I think kathy bates is really good in this film. Jennifer jason leigh. Not so much but kathy bates lega said she plays young. She plays old and she plays it. Well i'm actually convinced at times that she's younger and older the way she uses her body language away. She adopts that maine accent. Yeah but you're not convinced that she's guilty. Well i blame that on directing and script. I don't blame that on kathy bates. No that's her job. That is her job to tell us that she is guilty so that we believe later that she's in it. That is absolutely on her. But why would the innocent person making thinks she's guilty. I'm saying the actress should be playing these early scenes like convicted killer. What she's trying to do. And i think that's where the acting is falling. Flat is like i could see the motions where she's trying to come off as defiant and just like i did what i did and and you can't do nothing about it but i never feel that i hear the words. I hear saying that stuff. I've never convinced that that character is really you know going through that stuff though it feels kind of just you know character sketchy like none of it. Feels very natural. I don't get the sense that any of it feels like genuine human drama the way that good indie movie would i mean. This is a melodrama stewart. I give it a little bit because it is a melodrama. It should feel a little bit over the top one hundred percent like this by. But it's a melodramas kinda give it some of it the acting in that i. I don't think it's going for that indie grad and. I wanted to be clear. I'm not saying kathy bates bat in this. I'm saying she's fine. I'm not bowled. Over first of all. I think that she kinda got in one thousand nine hundred ninety without having a lot of competition. She probably shouldn't have won for that movie kind of a weird movie to win an oscar for but. I don't think that she gets to steal the spotlight. She's just not that much fun to watch in this mood. No and maybe that's why she likes the role again. I'm thinking she's trying to pull something for more subtle here and far more maternal. She's trying to be the protective mother. Bear here even when selena's an adult. She's still trying to be the mother bear. And yeah we see selena. Go out for supplies because yeah the place. Looks like crap. And she's unpacking and seeing the combat boots and the pills and we can see that both are concerned about the other but don't know how to say it and yeah again. All of this flashback stuff. Knowledge just feels kind of like a generic set up again. Why is this an r. Rated movie in theaters in one thousand nine hundred five because they say the fuck word a lot. And that's the only reason. I mean this thing is blood bloodless but again. I think they don't want to be a horror movie to because they'll turn away the audience. They're going for again gothic. I mean english patient. I mean i could just name lots. There's not a lot of the in the english patient. No but it has a gothic mood. There is a doomed quality to the characters in that you want it to have atmosphere at this thing does not i see tricks but i don't see a director in control of tone..

It's small town enough that they're going to let her go home for the weekend and we're gonna spend the next couple days sort of going back and forth in time to learn her narrative you can't arrest without evidence so they're interviewing her but well evidence. I think everything. They have is circumstantial. I don't think it's circumstantial. If you're standing above someone with rolling pin about bring it down on their face. I they gotta proof. She wasn't bacon bread rolling out the dough. Like i mean they're still evidence they need to find. That's actually the excuse. She uses in the book which she says. Why is the rolling in on the stairs. Oh i was making bread and then ran in. oh really. why's there flower on it. Then i knew how to make bread dolores liar. I don't know maybe. I don't know enough about the law but it seems to me like they're bending the rules when they have more than enough. You need better evidence than what they have to wrestle okay. Christopher plummer is going to spend the weekend pulling out her hair and running through the crime scene doing whatever he can to make sure that he can prove that. This woman did it even though she didn't do it. It seems like a flawed case right there because there's no evidence to suggest the rolling pin contacted with that woman so they'd have to prove somehow that she pushed the woman down the stairs which we think she might of. I mean from that opening shot. They want us to think that. At least the silhouettes as they were it could have been murdered. The one thing that any crime movie crime show has to do is establish a motive and it takes a while to establish dolores as motive and it comes in a little bit later. They discover she inherited. Isn't just like a little over a million dollars you know. It's like one point six. I think they say that's a motive. The motive is i worked for this bitch and like every time i had a fucking do. The sheets five pins. Don't use the dryer. Even though i gotta dryer right next to the washer six pins six spins. Don't use five. I'll see. I would have been fired. And she was getting paid like forty bucks a day like wages man. Yeah fifteen dollars minimum wage. Let's go yeah that that's really the motive. I hate you so much. I'm a throw you down the stairs. I'm sure every hospice care worker has had a fleeting thought that at some point. Yeah i thought that. Maybe dolores. Because i hadn't read the book i didn't know where this story's going but we do get this scene where they go back to. Dolores is house. Which i guess. She hasn't been to in a long time because she's been living with error but it's all like vandalized on like man. These kids got to her house very quickly like she just bird someone and they're already tagging it and smashing the windows but i guess that's from the husband dying. She just has this bad reputation and they destroyed our house because of that. Yeah i think they did it very quickly really because she murdered her husband so long ago. I can't imagine that they're harassing her all the time. I think this is because she did it again. I mean they yeah. They say she hasn't had a phone line for like three years. Yeah i believe that. She is pretty much a pariah in the small town community and they believe that she got away with murder. She's a murdering bitch and she lives up on the hill with that other bitch and then no one ever sees them. You know like they've kept to themselves. It's a lot like arne. Says we do find out a lot of this more towards the end in the beginning beheld to set that up here but yes when we see kathy bates here. I think she is to look guilty. I think she is maybe even to look unremorseful and when she saying things like i didn't kill that woman you might go I don't believe it seems like jennifer. Jason leigh selena. Doesn't believer at least is playing like not caring quite a bit but she drove a long way for being so indifferent. Yeah i think she's really mad at her mother for killing her father. And that's because she's repressed. What her father did she like. Everyone else has drawn the same conclusion. But we don't even really know about that yet. We have to have this. You know it's the big gambit of this movie. They have this technique of non chronological storytelling. Which i gotta say. This movie is coming out on the heels of pulp fiction. They're acting like look at us going back in time. Do you know what's going on. Yeah no they're just they just do a bunch of flashbacks with a chronology air. Just you want a lot of flashbacks in a film. Watch this one. Yeah i feel like it looks very footsie. In comparison to what was going on with time in criminology. Run lola run. All the all the films of the nineties. I just feel like this movie just wears. It's unhip nece like a sack dress you know. It's just couldn't be less cool. I don't think that's what it's going for them. This isn't trying to compete with pulp fiction. That the flashback. Narrative is keeping in time with the book itself. And i have to say it's obvious and overdone but the fact that everything in modern day is in such cool tones muted colors blues. And then when you go back to the past it's all warms and reds and rich colors and then we're going to get to a scene that gets even more artificial. It's kind of like it as a conceded immediately. Let you know where you are especially since kathy bates you know. She's not going to age twenty years while they're making this movie so she has to play a different. I think she does a very good job. Aided by makeup of playing old dir although not nearly as old as she was in the book and younger but the colors wardrobe everything helps that as well it does..

"That taylor hack furred. I mean you are. You're just a hack everything you try. You're just not very good at the reason why you don't know his name despite his fingerprints on movies you've probably seen and like i probably recommend hafiz films. Put devil's advocate in the book. And i'm not afraid to say like an officer and a gentleman stall odds in white nights. I've never seen ray but that's one that people like. I just think that like in the end. It's too bad that we didn't get a better director The script is there. The script cracked the difficulty of this book. But the mood and the sustained feelings that we want that. If it's not stephen king horror it should still be stephen king dread we should get that in this opening and it does not really speaking to that dread. I feel like this movie throughout like really lags to me. And if there's that sense of dread i'd be like on the edge of my seat as attention titans and titans as he's seeing kinda linger on for maybe a little bit too long but yeah there's none of that dread so i'm just kinda like in can pick it up. I know we've got some old people in the film but get him a walker something with move it along. I'm not gonna be so complimentary of the script. Because there are places where i feel like the script. Let this movie down. It takes a village to make a mediocre film. So i can't put it all on the hands of ackford dow well okay. I'll be interested to have that dialogue with you as we go forward. But that's my problem here. Grabber for an opener but really look right is kind of my feeling and that doesn't really go away when we jumped in new york and we meet selena. I guess jennifer jason. Leigh got this part because the director really liked her work and shortcuts where she played a sex phone operator who was always holding a baby and she just jennifer. Jason leigh at this time. Was your goth grow like if you wanted her to do something depraved or demented. You had female character that was strung out on drugs or a hooker generous with one call. I said white female was my go-to movie for her. No jennifer jason. Leigh did things like rush and last exit to brooklyn and again just a lot of just probably movies. You didn't see that. Just the indie film. She kind of avoided taking the julia. Roberts part yeah last exit to brooklyn. I know the book is the same guy who wrote requiem for a dream if that gives you any kind of idea of the film and they have a similar vibe and her outcome is similarly toxic. So yes i get why you would castor. You want her to have the same torture that her mom does. Even though she looks like a yuppie here with our berets. And her you know high end reporter job and she's screwing her boss and seems to have it. Made seems to be so far removed from the provincial main coastal island that we had just experienced and the bosses now screwing that other woman in the office who walks in and out right. I mean that's kind of the impression. I got the hand gestures in the looks. Those two shod each other. I even felt like they were conspiring against. Who's going to give her the facts. This is going to be so embarrassed. Your mom killed on. I mean i wouldn't go to the mall with my mom. I can't imagine how embarrassed i be. If i was at my job and i got this fax at least you get the day off the weekend. Apparently go up there and fix this. And then you're going to go to arizona because there's some important story. Yeah he just needs to get rid of her so he could sleep with these other girlfriend. It's pretty clear. And it's eric bogosian. Who is again. A new york tight. He's always in like small films. He's mostly known as a performance artist in and spoken word actor who does stage work. It's confessional and dark and he's up too good to me. He's that guy from scrubs and some others eric pogosyan. Yes wow i just you know. It's funny how people turn out i. Eric goes even at this time as known as like lou reed kinda cool new york vibe. Yeah if you see talk radio it's based on a real thing so he's not howard stern but that kind of dj. I mean uncut gems. He was the bad guy. The bad brother-in-law and uncut gems recently. Yeah great actor. He had an edge but it doesn't feel like he has an edge in this film. That's the weird thing to me. Is jennifer jason. Leigh like this scene in new york. City it kind of feels the same as the opening scene. I don't feel like there's a hard edge to it and it's just a weird disconnect for me that we're in new york and its journalist and it's just kind of feels like a melodrama again from the lifetime channel the edges that you can tell that he's cheating on her. That's i would say with what's edgy about. It is that she's under the impression that she's sleeping with the boss and getting all the cool assignments. Am i wrong in thinking. They broke up. I thought they were like ex-lover's now. I got the impression they were still together. She says you're not fucking me but you're fucking may so. I thought that she was saying that. We broke up and now. You're not giving me the good assignments like these. Could be more naturalistic if this felt like a real moment from a newsroom. But it doesn't. But i love the ferry ride. I love the idea again. These are gothic elements of rebecca or something like this haunted house that i have to return to this past that i ran away from in thought i never had to face. It's an interesting dynamic and again make selena way more interesting than she ever was in the book. She's hardly a character in the book especially as an adult which she's not a character in the book. She's referenced in the book so to see her play. Such a big part at least made the movie significantly. Different from the book where i had something interesting to take from it other than just. How did they adapt in a bridge. All of stephen king's three hundred pages and part of that is that it is not a one woman shows talking to faceless. Cops where she even does. Things can have a glass of water. Thank you for your my water. That's just how it's written. We don't never know the person went or anything and the other people are talking to her but we only hear her responses and here we get to see those cops and john. C reilly and christopher plummer john c reilly was a true surprise. I didn't know he was acting in movies at this time. He's a few years before boogie nights. He looks really young and has a lot of hair and laying on the main accent. Pretty thick everyone's laying on that accent. That can maybe people do talk like this. I've never been to maine. So they do. I mean you can understand them so that means it's a thin maine accent right and what we're to understand is that selena in does not whatever happened to her is so traumatic. She doesn't even remember. Yeah that's going to stretch credibility for me like when when i find out she was a teenager when the stuff happened or older tween like. I don't know if you could press without her. I'm not a psychologist psychologist. Let us know but yeah. It stretches credibility it was big in the mid-nineties though. I know repressed memories. Yeah roseanne repressed memories. Come out and then all of a sudden everybody was having repressed memories and all the stories were repressed memories of child abuse and molestation and so this was very topical if not very original in nineteen ninety-five right and again. There's several things that she doesn't remember right now. She doesn't remember christopher plummer. And maybe you wouldn't. Maybe you wouldn't remember the guy that was prosecuting your mom for murdering your dad particularly when you kind of blamed your mom for doing it and i think that that's what we'll find out..

"Within a couple of years i'll consider newly sober. I feel like you've been saying that. A lot but king does write a lot so yeah. Newly sober could put out like seventeen movies. Yes he does. These books came out in ninety two so again. Like his heyday of drinking. And all of that would have only been three years before then. He had a period of not writing where he just revised the stand. So you know here. I think he's stretching his writing muscles a little bit. But i do feel like he had some idea and wasn't quite sure how to tackle it and wrote two books simultaneous. I mean he writes multiple books simultaneously. He really and he'll put one away and go to work on another if he gets stock and work on one in the morning and work on one in the afternoon. I kind of feel like these were a couple of projects that went on at the same time and still leaning on his old. I'm stephen king. I've got to have something supernatural. He decided to tie them together. But it it literally goes nowhere. If you don't read both books you don't even know what those scenes means and having read both books. I don't know what the benefit of those scenes are no other than did more closely thematically drawn the ties together so that we see the impact. I'm going to be crass to buy both books to understand. Like those pok mon games. They always have to colors. You gotta buy if you want to get all of them if you want to catch them all gotta get both and he do this again with desperation of regulators. The same kind of books. They all have the same characters. But once i richard bachman and ones by stephen king. He likes playing with this kind of literary stuff. I like that too but again. I'm not disparaging it but you can't do it in a stand alone movie and more to the point. It wouldn't really help this movie as you say like that. If they had made gerald's game at the same time they would have wanted to market that and sell that to a different audience than what this movie seems. Build for a sit down and watch this one with my mom. I i figured that seems appropriate. After i read the book. I'm like mom i know. You don't like horror. But i think this one might be for you and i want to know whether king is playing to your crowd. I think this is definitely one for the steel magnolias fan. I can't wait to hear her recommend at the end and this movie didn't even really connect with that audience. They spent thirteen million on the budget. Shot nova scotia. I think kathy bates was there. Big expense there but it only made twenty four so after video and all of that. I think the best you could say was it broke. Even they now are calling it. A sleeper hit on video or a cult favorites because it did find an audience. I don't know where i didn't see this on. Tbs or tnt. Yeah maybe lifetime. It wouldn't surprise me if they you know oprah's channel definitely lifetime something like that but in theaters. They couldn't compete with outbreak or major pain. Do you remember that damon wayans. Oh i saw. Oh yeah i was up major pain outbreak. Not at this cowboy came out the week after and really kick the shit out of it through down the well. I was there to whatever i think of this movie. Tommy boy is better okay. Never seen it but anyway. Why don't we get into it. Aren't they give him the plot. Jennifer jason leigh is ambitious new york. Reporter selena's saint george but selena must return to her small town roots in little tall island maine. When selena's mother is accused of murder. Her mother is dolores. Claiborne played by kathy bates. Dolores was a caretaker for the island's rich. Now senile widow vera donovan at the start of the film veer and dolores. Struggle and vera falls down the stairs and dies police. Detective john mackey played by christopher. Plummer is immediately convinced. Dolores murdered vera a suspicion amplified when veras will reveals. The old woman left dolores over a million dollars detective. Mackey has another reason for pursuing dolores so hard eighteen years earlier. Dolores murdered her husband. Joe saint george played by jason straight. Aaron joe was abusive to dolores and molesting their daughter selena when deloris finds out about the sexual abuse she plots to kill her husband she gets an angry and drunk and goads him into chasing her through their yard right into an old well. Joe breaks through the rotted wood and dies. There wasn't enough evidence to convict. Dolores but mackey was convinced murder joe and he won't let her get away with it twice. Selena in day is an alcoholic like her father. And she's repressed. The abuse and blamed her mother for her father's death. She returned to the island to do the bare minimum to try and get her mother a lawyer but as she leaves the island the repressed memory of abuse surfaces selena returns to the island puts mackey in his place pointing out his real reason for prosecuting. Dolores selena states. Dolores and vera were close friends and growing old together and vera fell down the stairs and asked allures to kill her do her failing mental capacities dolores and bureau were all each other had. And that's why veer left delors the money. Mackey gives up his prosecution and selena. And dolores have repaired relationship as credits roll. But who inherits the china pigs. That's what i want to know. That's all i've won the whole house. Give me those china pig. That's the kind of stuff that people take to auction houses and think. Oh my god. I'm inheriting so much by selling these china pigs and the auction. Nearest be like yeah. This isn't worth anything. John and take it on antique roadshow. I yeah boy but you know what as we get started. I mentioned that the book first paragraph let you know right away. At least how delors want you to see that. I didn't kill this woman very smartly. I think they craft is opening so that i think if you didn't read the book you would believe dolores very much wanted to kill this woman. I didn't read the book. But i was suspicious because it goes so far out of its way to make it look like delors wants to kill her and receive this woman fall down the stairs then. Deloris runs into the kitchen. It's like on a pulp fiction. Do i grab the samurai sword nine for the rolling pin. I'm like okay i. It definitely looks like she did it. But this is very weird like how much it's going out of. Its way to make her look guilty. Yeah i agree with jacob. I didn't think again. I just reread the book. I knew very well when i was in for but i felt like if you were an active thinker during the scene. You'd know that it was trying to her. Look guilty but it doesn't make sense. Why would she grabbed the rolling pan instead of the knife. Why were they struggling at the top of the stairs and the way. The actress playing vera says pleased deloris. It doesn't sound frighten. It sounds like please let me and so with all of that. I didn't think that it really set up. Kathy bates as the serial killer tight as soon as the mailman like walks in and sees her holding that rolling pin. I'm like okay. That's gonna be the mystery. What really happened. It's not what it seems. Okay let's see how it plays out. But i never fully bought in that. She's guilty of murder. Well you guys are calling out the problem that i have. I still gonna argue. No i think they've hidden it well in the script but this direction like almost instantly when we have this opening shot like drifting to this manner. If you're doing gothic you want it to be full on gothic. I mean go find one of those movies. They gotta have the right art direction. The right style. You want to feel like the mood and here. It just looks like some pasty. Pbs thing right like this doesn't look good. It's like overly directed they have all of these ridiculous transitions where the rolling pin rolls over the camera. And then it's a truck rolling into new york city like oh. The director is so proud of all of that he talks about. Oh i know how much work he put into each of those shots and how you watching don't realize but that shot took eighteen people in four days but is it the right shot for this kind of film that that's what this director needs to ask himself. Sure you could do the shot but shigeo. Yeah no. I mean think about movies like the others or you know the recent sofia coppola but like something where it's just drenched in dread an atmosphere. You wanna feel like this is a ghost story. Not where the ghosts are going to rip your flesh off but that people are truly haunted by their actions. That's the point that guilt. I know that's the point of the book. I'm gonna say that's not the point of the movie i'm gonna say the point of the movie is kind of a feel good woman film of female empowerment feminist film. That mothers and daughters can see and walk out feeling bonded. Kind of like one of the many adaptations of little women. I would throw this next two in little women does not make me frightened. Women go thick. Okay seven i would agree with feel good. I do not like this is a melodrama and there should be a certain. Yeah whether that's gothic aesthetic. Whatever there's a certain way you shoot a melodrama in this isn't it weathering heights starts with someone seeing a ghost on the moors. I mean you can definitely still get their arnie an have a feminist female empowerment for you and your mom kind of movie but like you still need to create this mood and and the point is just to ironic..

"dolores" Discussed on Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast

"Stephen king film. Sixty nine nice. One of our longest franchise and i will be discussing of sixty nine. Went on in this movie. Yeah i don't know if this is the one that should be number. Sixty nine appropriate only might be fun to get back with a good one. That is the reputation of dolores claiborne. Was that even though. It didn't make a lot of money. And i don't think has the you say carey. I think this space in a problem queen outfit covered in blood christine. I think about that car. Dolores claiborne. I don't know what that means. I didn't know what to expect. This was really billed as a sequel to misery. That was. It's kathy bates again which she going to kill. That's definitely the sense. I got when i watched the trailer. Because yeah i didn't know dolores claiborne by stephen king. Is this one of experimental victorian. Jane austen style stories. And so yeah. I wouldn't watch that trailer. I'm like okay so it's misery to that that's what they want me to think. At least it's not yeah. That's that full on scary horror but yeah that melodrama dealing with horrific things. I guess there's an eclipsing again. We talked about one recently with an eclipse. yeah. I talked about gerald's game how that's it gerald's game and dolores claiborne came out near each other. They both deal with molestation child abuse incest and they both have an eclipse. And if you read the books there's some weird crossover that's pointless in the movies. They just both have an eclipse and dolores claiborne shocking to me because our listeners. They tend to be genre fans because that's what we primarily cover. You know they're laughing that we have to go back in the cornfield for another children of the corn or they're like. When are you going to do snake guy. Is that kind of thing. But there was a groundswell of winter. We reviewing deloris clayborn. And i'm like there was yes. I've never even heard of this movie. I have no recollection of it. Trailer didn't seem familiar so this isn't demand by people. Yeah and it's shocked the hell out of me and i'm like i've never seen the movie. I read the book back in the day but people are anxious for dolores claiborne. That just seemed interesting to me because this did feel like a chick flick drama that i didn't usually see people clamoring. Hey when are you doing. Twenty seven dresses. When are you doing. The devil wears prada. Yeah but you know. Castle rock entertainment. That's part of it. It's why got made was that. Rob reiner had this pretty good relationship going with king stand by me misery. They produce shawshank. They're really going to be the ones to make the respectable king movies. You know the drama ones the ones that don't necessarily have to pander to the vampires and the haunted hotel but we like the vampires in the hotels but it admittedly you've named some of the best king adaptations that are out there. I mean we get things like graveyard shift and lawnmower man. It's more what you think of with king but it's not what you think of as good. Yeah i went and read the novel. Because i wanted to know and frankly after gerald's game which was one of the better stephen king novels. I had read to know that this was the companion piece. I was very curious. And what i can say is if you were one of those people that read misery and hated it. Every time they jumped into the gothic part watch out. This one is going to be really hard for you to get through because it is three hundred pages of a first person babble novella for king. It's short in that sense. It goes by pretty quick but everything you read is dolores claiborne talking to unseen cops about in the first paragraph. she's like. I didn't kill my employer but i did kill my husband and so like there's not even a lot of mystery to it it's dislike. Let's give this woman the floor. A one woman show in which this bitter washerwoman gets to comment on life in new england. It was dedicated to. Stephen king's mom like it feels like this mother's day present. It feels like he wanted to thank her for whatever sacrifices she might have made to give him an education. Did his mom his dad. The dad went out for smokes and never came back now. If he fell down a well okay so he could have been murdered. We don't know yeah right. He wasn't around and you know she had to do what she had to do. And yeah it's nice to see king stretch. It was nice for him to do something a little shorter a little bit outside of his box. But i didn't feel like it was a totally perfect fit. This isn't the one you'd go to someone said. Never read any stephen king. I'd be like Read scarlet letter vanity fair or jane ear before you you go to this one. This one's about as good as a gothic novel. As eyes of the dragon is as a fantasy novel. I reread it. And i enjoyed it this time around but i found meandering especially since you know. It does delve into that literary irony were. It's all told in flashback. But we know things the characters back then. Don't know but i don't know if i just remembered the book very vividly from my first reading or if it was just so telegraphed but when i ended the book i was like if i had to give that a log line. What was that book about. And it is a woman living in poverty in new england. Not about killing the patriarchy. Because i think it's pretty clear what this is about. Yeah yeah yeah. Women have to do some really horrible things. They have to be a bitch if they're going to survive and you know if you think they're cruel and an axe wielder like the misery novel. This is the one to give you a little bit more sympathy as to their psychopathy. You know this is the one to try and humanize. Dangerous female characters and kathy bates was chosen intentionally. Because if you playing a movie where. This woman is suspected of murder off the bat. Coming off of misery. A few years earlier winning her oscar for misery. You immediately think of kathy bates in a stephen king movie as dangerous and kathy bates has said. This is the single favourite role. She's ever played okay. That seems wrong. I'll just go ahead definitely not as but when when people tell you all this is your best film. You want to pick the one that nobody saw. You wanna pick the that was like no but but this one was special to me and you guys didn't prize in the same way well and she got to stretch her acting muscles little more you know..

When will I know when I can go and get a vaccine?

"Hello this is corona cast a daily podcast all about the coronavirus. I'm health reported teigen tyler physician and journalists culture. Norman swan choosy the twenty third of february the second day of national immunization. That's right and we've had saw so many questions from audience about how the vaccine role it's gonna work how you're gonna know when it's your turn in the queue and rather than us answering those questions we thought we'd bring in loren roberts who's a health report at one of our colleagues in the abc science unit because lauren's been looking into the vaccine rolette and how it's gonna work and she's here to answer your questions. Welcome lauren thank you good morning. Carl orange relief is test. Somebody on carcass cass. She knows what they're talking about talking about. I'm talking about the okay. Whatever lauren. let's get straight into it. We've got dolores asking. She's just by heggie practice and they have no idea how the vaccine is going to be rolled out. They waited eight weeks for their flu vaccine last year. What are the logistics. That are involved in the vaccine. Rollout will because there's lots of different phases when not certain about how people are going to be notified through the light rollout. So we're talking about rollouts gonna happen in the latter half of this year. We do know that people that are included in the phase. One eight of the vaccine rollout. So that's i care. Workers people that are currently living in h care. Quarantine workers a lot of these people. They're going to be told by the employer and have the coronavirus vaccine lined up by their employer and then probably get the vaccine at work so people that can h care for example. They'll probably get their vaccine de but it's the latest stages that we're not too sure about. We know that there's a good chance that will eventually be up to register online to get the coronavirus vaccine. I'm but at this stage there is to register. It's a little bit of a white and say so just to be clear. Lauren and give us a flavor as well.

Protect Your Camera Gear from Theft

"So i have a few stories to start out with one very close to home to from the headlines just to illustrate just how crazy things are right now and it comes to real stealing camera gear and then i have. Some ideas These are things that i'm practicing in my own career But i'm going to share them with you in terms of how to protect myself how to protect yourself and how to hang onto our cameras because it feels like there are a lot of folks out there that want to take them from us and obviously we don't want to lose any of our gear that we like so much and we don't want any harm to come to anyone. The happens to be in the area at the time. So these considerations are very important. So let's start out with a few stories of what is going on now. The first one is close to home because it happened after one of my workshops in two thousand nineteen the bodega bay workshop. And this is the gas station smash and grab so one of our workshop. Participants Had finished up and he was heading back to the airport and a rental suv and he had his camera gear in the back in the hatch area of the suv and he just made a stop at the gas station and he needed to go inside to get a couple items and in that short period of time that he left his car which was locked he left it locked to go inside to get a couple of things. Someone had either been eyeballing him or you know. We're never sure exactly how this happens. But they knew exactly where to go and they went to his suv. They smashed in the back window. And that's what they do. They don't mess around. They just smashed the window. They reach in. They grab the gear in his case. I believe it was two backpacks full gear and then they speed off all in just a matter of seconds truly disappointing to hear that that happened to him. He had had a great workshop. It was one of his first workshops with us and then to have it. Finish on that note made me feel very bad and you go inside for a minute your cars locked and he still lose your gear. That's what i'm talking about the state of things right now. Now this next one was in penn. Pixel i read it on pedal pixel just today in Let me read you this. And by the way i have the link to the story In the show notes. The talkers robbed while stuck in san francisco. Traffic lose seven thousand dollars in camera gear. I don't know if you saw this or not. There's actually a video that goes with it at someone else. Videoed it happening okay and you can see that when you go to the link. Regia the text right here. This may be the modern day equivalent of a stagecoach robbery. A of photographers were just brazenly robbed. While they were sitting in traffic in san francisco robers smashed their rear window and stole a bag filled with seven thousand dollars in gear and it was all caught on camera. Abc seven which is a local news station reports that the husband and wife real estate photographers ben. And marsha of home shots were waiting to get onto the interstate eighty ip around four thirty pm friday afternoon after finishing a photo shoot near dolores park as the video above shows and so they do have the video there a dark honda than pulled up. Alongside the photographers. Prius a man jumped out quickly. Smashed the rear window smashed. They're sitting in the car. Smashes the rear window. Grab the equipment bag that was in the trunk hop back into the car and sped off. The whole incident lasted about ten seconds. Start to finish and it was caught on camera behind. By tesla driver named alex who then pulled over in exchange. Contact information with the photographers marcia. Who had been driving. The car had noticed the dark car falling them after they left the photo shoot. This is a very important point. Then estimates that his stolen gear which includes a camera lens drone in was worth around seven thousand

interview With Father Gregory Boyle of Homeboy Industries

"Hey everyone. Welcome to how. I built this resilience edition from npr on these episodes. We talk with entrepreneurs and change makers how they're meeting today's challenges with new strategies and ideas and today we're going to hear from father gregory boyle. He's the founder of homeboy industries. Father greg founded homeboy industries after years of serving as a jesuit priest and later as a pastor at dolores mission church in east. La forty saw the devastating effects of gang related violence on his community after operating for over thirty years. Homeboy industries has become one of the largest gang intervention rehabilitation and re entry programs in the world. About fifteen thousand folks year walk through our doors trying to reimagine their lives. We were begun in nineteen eight. Just end my paris. Which was the poorest in the city but had had the highest concentration of gang activity. We had eight gangs at war with each other and i started to bury kids. I buried my two hundred and eighty third last week. Not all from that community. Obviously but i know a lot of gang members. So i get asked and and so we just started. Things started to school than we started the jobs program trying to find felony friendly employers then that was not so forthcoming so we started businesses. A bakery was the first in ninety two and now we have nine social enterprises but also a program of healing you know. Sluggers tattoo removal. There's therapy case management classes. It's an amazing series of programs. And as you mentioned i mean things like tattoo removal or just helping people kind of reenter society after being gangs or being incarcerated obviously while it's changing many employers still reluctant to hire people with felony records and in response to that you create your own businesses aside from the bakery which is probably the best known because it has locations in los angeles tummy a little bit more about some of the other social enterprises that homeboy industries has launched so at our headquarters. We have homeboy bakery homegirl. Cafe and homeboy homegirl marchandise. And then we have the restaurant at the airport a city hall. We have homeboy diner. The only place to get food at city hall. We have a thing called homeboy grocery where we sell chips salsa and guacamole and a variety of grocery stores boy recycling which is recycling. You waste which quite an extensive of business and growing amboise silkscreen and embroidery. That's been around for twenty seven years. Lap boesky nine in there so That's a lot. that's a lot. I was telling you earlier before we went live that i saw you profile and sixty minutes in. I think in the late eighties early nineties and i grew up in in los angeles. You're such a legendary figure there. I'm you've been awarded the california peace prize. And i mean you're a priest at the end of the day like your priest you do. Mass obviously socially distant for people who are incarcerated. But you're also an entrepreneur. Did you consider yourself as an entrepreneur when you founded this organization. Do you think of yourself that way. Now why board would never sign on the notion that i know anything about business so i don't really see it that way but we're always responding if tattoos had become a an obstacle in gang members. One of them off. We started that even in terms of our businesses. They were kind of haphazard you. There was no business plan. There was an abandoned bakery across the street from our school. Our parochial school in a movie producer. Ray stark after the unrest in ninety two wanted to help and i said well okay. I don't know by this bakery. It has ovens they don't work. You could fix them. We could put hairnets on enemy rival gang members. Well that was the entirety of my business plan. So i think i think everything else kind of operated in the same way. There was a couple from the parish who wanted to start rodriguez silk screening. And i said well. Don't start homeboys screening in. So that's how that was born so you know it wasn't like go some big master plan and it was all kind of accidental. You know we have a thing called the global homeboy network. Which is you know. Three hundred programs in the country outside kind of modeled on methodology. You know they all want to start a social enterprise and they all want to do food. Which i always say don't but you know because food is hard. Yeah restaurants are really hard sex in us to a bakery cafe and it's hard to talk people out of this. But i was tell do silk screening. That's recession proof. Everybody wants a shirt their family reunion or they're five k. race. And they'll go with you even if it's more expensive because it's kind of the. Paul newman feel good. You know it's like yeah. It's cost more but it helps employees

While I call myself a a kind of my my tittering preacher in so ways or teacher sheet shirt and My background is Biochemistry Lecture, which I worked prevent eleven years find college, and I became increasingly aware through something huge missing in my life. I had a lot of things materially with something missing I was involved in a lot of social justice issues those involved in politics of teaching, and all of those things were separate and they never seem to join and in nineteen eighty three was living in Canada in Edmonton on I went to a workshop. By, somebody I didn't know anything about his name's Matthew Fox but I was in spite to go be constant flyers. Said you just talk of bring together spirituality politics spirituality? Spirituality creativity spirituality science or of those things were part of my life with they've never come together and when he went to hear him, it was a night moment I just went Oh, my God I've been waiting to hear this unknown anonymity for all of my life and I walked.

So I made this extraordinary decision to give up my job identify this name in California, probably wouldn't be justified.

The holiday has been around since the late eighteen hundreds, but it may take on a new residence this year given the protest for racial justice happening across the country. A few major local employers have even made June eighteenth a paid holiday for their staff. Here at bay curious, we like to keep our eyes on search engine trends and we've noticed a lot of locals are asking what is June. Teeth so I up. We've got a quick primer for you from reporter assaults on a poor. For one weekend each year, thousands of people come together at the Lauren district in south. Berkeley, you'll see drummers traditional African clothes, street vendors, selling barbecue and an exhibit, documenting local black history is all for Berkeley's annual June teen festival, which the city celebrated almost every year since nineteen eighty. It some AB- rates the black experience. That's what I always tell people, Dolores not cooper has been organizing Berkeley's June eighteenth festival for the past thirty three years June teen stands for June nineteenth, and it was the day that general granger road into Galveston Texas on June nineteen, eighteen, sixty five, and let the slaves. They are know that they were free in. This was two years after the Mansa proclamation. This was the last group of enslaved people. People to learn, they'd been freed. The celebration evolved into June teams an annual holiday commemorating their emancipation delores says it's meant to remember the nightmare of slavery while celebrating the resilience of the African American community, we have to to our own horn and let people know that what we've done is significant without our contribution. America just simply would not be America so June teeth puts black joy and culture, front and center through food, frightening dance and music. The more you know, the more familiar you are, the better you feel, and it's not just. Oh, I like that music, and all I like the culture kind of thing, but just knowing black people as individuals. That have the same needs and wants as everybody else, but this year is June. Team will look a bit different, so we are doing an online commentary with writings from riders artists about the Penn Dim make about civil unrest about the current status of black lies. delores says they're calling this virtual event.

From Barack Obama's two thousand eight presidential campaign to the fight for climate justice to the continued struggle for workers rights to Spain's anti austerity campaigns of 2019. Martin Luther King Junior said that the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice we all know that it only bends towards justice because of individuals willing to put themselves on the front lines of the Civil Rights Struggle Laura Sweater who turned ninety on April tenth. Twenty twenty has never left the front lines. She's a force of nature that has transformed the lives of those who grow and harvest the food that sustains each of us creating the phone welcome movement with Cesar Chavez she is the mother of the modern labor movement also came up with the idea that consumers have the power to shape and push industries like great growers to improve farm worker conditions. She then that. Labor negotiations to memorialize will can benefit in the nation's first of their kind collective bargaining agreements. Deloris is a fearless and incredibly effective advocate legislation. She championed the landmark building nineteen sixty to allow people to take the California driver's examination in Spanish. And and she's never stopped last year. She helped enact leads to create California's Fund for safe and affordable drinking water Quetta who describes himself as a born again feminists consciously incorporated feminism into her fight for workers rights and push Gloria Steinem and the one thousand nine hundred sixty s to expand the feminist movement to include issues of race thereby helping make feminism and Movement for all women not just white women from the beginning. Dolores wet has also been an environmental champion fighting to protect workers from harmful pesticides sanding shoulder to shoulder with native Americans at Standing Rock and picking up litter after every rally she led. I Talk About a fiftieth anniversary with my hero and living legend Dolores Wetter Kelly. Working Fourteen hour days with Heff Foundation to make sure farmwork has have access to protective equipment food and benefits during this pandemic. And if you thought you knew everything about Delores also talk about why she loves burning man. Dolores where are you right now all right now? I'm in the belly of the beast. I'm in Bakersfield California Bakersfield and all of Kern county. You are going through really rough times right now. Dolores is a lot of people that have been laid off. I think it's over a thousand oil workers that have been laid off. One of the company is completely. Shut Down Lager. People EARN EMPLOYEES CIVILLY TRAGIC. But we know at the same time. And that's why we see that our air is a little cleaner a usually here in Kern county. We are women the worst areas of pollution for air pollution in the country. And we know that that air pollution really affects not only the physical health especially if the children but also the mental health of children. Here we have Not only to freeways that can make your highway ninety nine and highway five of but then we have all of the pollution that comes from the Agricultural Industry Caesar industrial growers that have not really converted their tractors They're so easy in a lot of diesel. It's a big struggle and when you try to bring to the attention they consider this to be an attack instead of thinking. Okay what do we have to do to make them more economically friendly jobs for people so these are the challenges that we have ahead of us as we try to convert all of the fossil fuel industries into industries. That are more friendly for everybody. So deloris in the late fifties and sixties when you have founding the farmworker movement and and really bringing those issues to the full when whether environmental issues like drinking water and air quality and pesticide runoff. How did those issues fest? Come to your attention right at the beginning at the very beginning you know. I grew up in Stockton California which is also like a cultural area. I was in a field in. I see this what I thought was fog rolling in but I thought how can you have fog in the summertime? Well it was a pesticide residue. That was rolling in. That was one of the first things that farmer who's complained about about the effects of Pesticides. And so we had so many cases of pesticide poisonings. Sometimes Terry crews like thirty. Forty people would been poisoned at the same time. How can this happen? Slow regard for the health farm workers so one of the first contracts that I signed a day. Employers tell exactly how many pesticides they were going to spray and where they were going to be spread out and then we passed legislation to make sure that the appeals are posted of when they sprayed some of these dangerous pesticides and then we work very very hard to get some of these dangerous pesticides restricted and banned forever and unfortunately a lot of pesticides we had because like Didi they were then shipped to Mexico to Latin American countries. And so here but we had all of these farmers could children that. Were being bored with these horrible deformities being born without arms without legs so horrific here you had children in Mexico and parts of Latin America. That were having exactly the same type of affection disabilities that were coming from pesticides

"Region which is either drops off to pleasing words word is because people are individual stand. I don't know that we can look at that individually but as far as me trying to judge you. Are you trying to judge me but individually if we understand? What's being talked about tonight? That that's something the court says. This is at the core of Christianity. Faith then hopefully each day. We tried to work on that a little bit more where I had somebody tell me. I'm not going to give the name. But a person was facing a situation that they were not able to deal with a couple of days ago and said. I prayed for somebody to show up to help me with this and the person sent two minutes later. The the person there to help me now somebody might say well. That was coincidence. But here was a person who prayed in faith God. I need help. I need help from certain person. This person is not here. Maybe that person is not gonNA come. I need assistance and to go through lied flat tire the first question for a lot of people. What am I going to do but for the Christian? Hopefully we'll step back and say okay. I'm not quite sure what I'm GonNa do but God knew this day was gonna come. God knew I was going to have a flat tire. God knew that I was going to see cal. And I'm going to have faith in God that some way somehow. This situation is going to be successfully resolved hopefully with the least amount of pain but as you go through those circumstances in life whether it's a flat tire whether you're looking for a job somebody didn't show up for work. You've got a sick child and you have to figure out where to get a babysitter for the day. The first thing too I think for the Christian to move further down that faith line is to think I am going to have faith in my God. He knew this time would come. He knows I'm GONNA need help. He's got the power to help me and I'm going to trust him to deliver me if you can get that into your mindset. Then I think is. Dolores brought up from those those other versions. That's where you're seeing faith unto faith Romans one seventeen and that's where you're seeing. Hebrews eleven six where it's not just pleasing to God but mentioned being up. And here's the person who has the flat tire and the person looks to God and says God. I believe that you are going to help me. Can't you see how God would look at that and say I'm well pleased by that person? They're not focused on the flat completely. At least they're thinking that I am going to assist them and for the person who's trying to live the righteous life. God says yes. I'm going to go ahead and and help my people. It's not gonNA blow up miraculously as far as inflated tire but the tow truck shows up at the right time or there is a person who's sympathetic or person. Who knows you and you get the help that you need don. I think you've got the last word.

Searching for Summer Shipp

"So summer shipp grew up under her given name Dolores in Granite City Illinois. Her mother Cora raised her and her three brothers alone after their alcoholic. Father left the family. Now Cora raise children as Jehovah's Witnesses and this was a religion there's some are continued to practice throughout her life. She did stop attending services but observed religion. She never celebrated Christmas birthdays. She said that every day was a holiday and she liked by her daughter and her friends gifts when it was her birthday. Isn't that Nice good? Sounds like a nice lady really really nice so some are grew up in extreme poverty under pretty rough circumstances and of this. She has pretty frugal but in our young adulthood she married a wealthy man John Ship and she lived for years in luxury however difficult childhood in Granite City. That never was far from her mind. John Ship was the manager for the local metro-goldwyn-mayer branch. Mgm when he moved to Kansas City from Florida in nineteen sixty nine now summer had moved to Kansas City just a few months previously. She saw the city as a place to forget her pass and she's going to create new life for herself. Yeah that was important to her to kind of start over. The childhood was rough so John. Lived in the same apartment complex as a friend of summers and when she visited that friend at the community pool she really caught Johns I. Some are was not a classic beauty but she was really pretty at five foot one inches tall and just over a hundred pounds. She was tiny but she was a bundle of energy sometimes described as sprightly so although John had a girlfriend at the time he broke things off with her to be with summer in October of nineteen. Seventy summer was pregnant and she told John on the night. He took her to see an advance screening of the movie. Two thousand one a space odyssey and after that they decided to move in together and just see if they could make things work. John's apartment became their first home together and their front door was just feet from the pool so John worked as he floated in the water and Sunday himself. The phone set nearby and when it rang he would just paddle to the edge of the pool and work on deals so this is kind of living the dream. I guess float around in the pool. Yeah phones broke their nice good way to do it but he did work hard. He negotiated film showing contracts for hundreds of theaters throughout Missouri and Kansas. So he was really on his way up in the industry at this point so some are in. John got married at the courthouse with John's brother and a friend of summers as witnesses and they had a daughter who they named Brandy. She had read here like her mother's but even brighter and darker and both summer and John were just thrilled with this little girl. They moved out of the apartment and rented a cottage that summer adored for a while and then as the money kept coming in two years later they moved into a duplex in a very upper class area living near professional football players so John left MGM and but an independent Film Distribution Company called Thomas Films and after he bought it he changed the name to Thomas and ship films. The company was more successful than he had ever could have been able to imagine. He made a ton of money so much money that he felt like he'd WanNa Lottery. Are He come up from humble beginnings himself? Yes I think in summer really didn't know what to do with all this money. It was foreign to both of them and I guess summer was able to kind of not focus on it. She just wasn't that interested in things but I think John it kind of affected him and he got carried away with it here. Well I knew her. Religion would seem to me to make her less desirous of money. And what money can buy share? I mean I'm sure she liked not having to worry about it like she had all her life absolutely and remember up until this time she's still going by her original name. Dolores but when brandy was just a toddler that's when she legally took on her new name. Summer brandies middle name was Alexis so some are named herself summer. Alexis ship and by the time brandy was three. John was making over two hundred thousand dollars a year. And this is the nineteen seventies. So I looked it up. And that's about seven hundred thousand dollars a year equivalent in today's money so ton of money tournament in nineteen seventy four. They bought a two story. English Tudor home in the exclusive Crestwood neighborhood and they had a house with a huge private in ground pool. An Art Gallery Jim Asana just everything. Yes so brandy was Kinda spoiled. When she was a little girl. It was almost unavoidable even though she did get a lot of attention as well as things but like I mentioned John's lifestyle just became out of control as his income was soaring. He spent time on the West and east coasts partying with the rich and famous. Eventually he found himself with an expensive dependence on cocaine and pills and is John pulled away from his home and family life into this life. Some are just kind of channeled her love and attention into raising her daughter. So Brandy got a lot of attention. Showered on her. Maybe too much if that's possible. Do you think that's possible to give a kid too much attention? No again it depends on what kind of attention. Well here's my thought on it. You can give them too much attention if you're allowing them to control you like when you're on the phone they're trying to take your attention away when people come over when you have worked to do. I mean there has to be a respect as well sure. That's why I said it depends on the kind of attention right so I think that it can be a bad thing when you get to the extreme. But that's not really the attention being the problem I guess that's more like the The fruits of the attention. Well yeah it's kind of the control like you want your child to see you as being in control of things when you don't want your child to take over control of what's going on day to day. Well I mean it can really be unhealthy and they can have a rude awakening when they get older. And everybody's not just falling over themselves to please them herbs moving so I think that's another issue is you don't want to raise them to feel entitled to everything so anyway I mean they did love her and it was a nice childhood although she was probably a little bit spoiled. Well how does she turn out? She turns out great. Okay so in. Nineteen seventy six. John took brandy in summer to the cons film festival ru and they spent time with David Kerosene is that the Kung Fu guy. Well that's the Carribean family. I don't know which one is which I think David was Kung-fu guy okay. And cary grant roll my love who carry granted yes. He was in one of my favorite movies. What was it sweep? Listen in Seattle now. An affair to remember. I know I was GONNA say that next so afterwards they went on an extended vacation to London Rome and Paris and they flew back to the United States on the First Air France Concorde flight from Paris to Washington. Dc wrong that's That's cool that's cool. That's Nice. Yes where she? Oh totally. And some are just felt like this poor country girl who was living like royalty. John became one of the biggest independent film distributors in the country and they were dining with. Paul Newman Joanne Woodward and Clint Eastwood Big names. Very big names especially in the seventies absolutely well when still around working yeah. He's still big but as her life was changing. Some are really didn't change. Who she was and I respect that. While John was traveling all over the world she stayed home and spent time with her daughter. She also invited other children over for play dates reading books and singing with them so she liked to share in her good fortune which. I think is so important. She even took time to volunteer at a home for emotionally disturbed young women and as a reward for good behavior. She would bring some of the girls to her house to swim for a day and loved it and they worked hard and did things so that they could earn a day at the pool so are like summer. She sounds like she's cutter head on straight and she's living the life. Well you know it's funny because they started reading the book about summer than I found online and I had no idea I was going to do the case but I did just feel such an affection for this woman that I enjoyed reading the book. It wasn't like work and I really enjoyed being able to Read about her in her life. Of course Jon was away a lot of the time. And he had his drinking habits in his drug habits so understandably their marriage suffered. There is a large Christmas office party in the late seventies when summer walked in on John and he and other parties were snorting large amounts of cocaine right on his desk so she walked out feeling pretty angry and worried at the same time. Sure I mean not only worried John but for her daughter you know. It's just very risky behavior. That he was getting into their relationship was getting more and more distant. Rose probably not a lot of good that comes out of a cocaine addiction or a drug addiction for that matter in marriage right. Something's going to happen well and it's interesting that when things stopped going so well for John and he has to really deal with things he does get better. So by nineteen eighty. His company started going downhill and the small films that John Distributed. Were really being snatched up by the major film companies without that business. He was quickly falling behind on his debts and he fell into some deep financial trouble because he hadn't saved enough. He was a big spender and happens. Cocaine is not free. I know but wouldn't you just put enough in a savings somewhere? In case the bottom falls out as a backup will most people would but a lot of people disfigure that. There's no end to this stuff. I guess you feel that way now is at this very very successful company. Money's just rolling in. I'd be of the opinion that this no change in that things are going to keep happening for me. Well and I'm kind of surprised that the way summer grew up that she didn't squirrel away more money because I personally waiting for the other shoe to drop and I liked to be prepared. Well Yeah but she did. She work well not really now. Not at that point or any money. She had came through her husband. Sheriff so what you're going to say to him honey. I need an extra thousand this week. 'cause I'm saving for when you go bankrupt? Well I just say. I WANNA start a savings account. I WANNA put a thousand dollars a week away and it shouldn't have fazed him when he was making so much

Larry Itliong and the Great Delano Grape Strike

"Year is nineteen sixty five. The Vietnam War is escalating. I have today ordered. Tha Nam the Air Mobile Division and certain other footage which will raise our fighting strength from seventy five thousand one hundred and twenty five thousand men almost immediately X. is assassinated Jeff Van. The gunfire went off and his hand was up. I remember turned around and the next thing I saw smell come falling back in the jet. Martin Luther King Junior leads a series of civil rights marches in Selma Alabama. They I want to say to the state of Alabama. Just want to say to the people as a matter of and the nations of the world that we are not about turnaround. We own the move. Now yes we on the move and Norway racism the Bannon and in California farmworkers faced with racial discrimination and economic hardship organizing for their rights as workers. And as okay so quick recap on the history of farm workers on the West Coast and specifically California. Immigrants had been exploited as cheap farm labor for years. I Chinese Japanese migrants then Filipino. Nationals arrived in the nineteen twenties. Mexicans became a large part of the farm labor force around time but also just poor folks of all backgrounds looking for work. Black White Brown were exploited. They lived in shabby wooden houses near the fields. They worked for hours under the Sun. Some even lived in former concentration camps which house Japanese Americans during their internment in World War. Two since they first started coming over in the nineteen twenties Filipino. Farmworkers had tried negotiating for better working conditions and wages with their bosses. Usually white guys called growers beheld. Strikes started organizations and unions. They were often met with violence. Or they'd lose their jobs. Gore's were higher other ethnic groups. Instead scabs to their strikes like the immigrants who came before them Filipinos were thought of as hard workers who were obedient easy to control but they were also militant having lived through years of race. Riots shootouts violent. Confrontations with police growers SCABS. It wasn't uncommon for Filipinos to draw knives on the picket line. Larry it Leon came up in this old school. Militant tradition of striking labor organizing and by the nineteen sixties. He was a leader of a union that represented farmworkers call the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee. A Walk which was supported by a larger union the AFL CIO. Larry worked the likes of Mexican American activists. Dolores Huerta and Filipino. American organizers Philip Aracruz. Who called Larry the most powerful Filipino leader in a walk? He had the most experience. I mean he'd been in a lot of strikes you know and he was the head of a walk at the time this. Miriam Powell a journalist and historian who spent almost a decade writing books and articles about another famous Labor leader Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers which we'll get to in a bit in terms of the nuts and bolts like being a Labor leader running a union. Larry was the guy absolutely. That's where story picks back up as a union organizer and leader one of Larry's jobs is to visit farms in the Central Valley to recruit. New members moves his family to Delano. Where he the mostly Filipino. Workers in May nineteen sixty five opportunity knocks in nearby. Coachella valley where there are also Filipino. Workers who need help. Here's Patrick again. As older Larry. Here's some workers did a dollar forty in our Filipinos are getting a dollar twenty five an hour. Now that don't make sense to me. It's time to strike okay so to strike meant. The workers would stop working until their employers. The growers listen to the demands but striking farmworkers wasn't going to be easy they were going against big agricultural business agribusiness. The man agribusiness was the most powerful industry in California at that time. Million Powell again arm workers were really the poorest people who also had no protection all of this sort of existing health safety and labor laws that applied to other professions. Do not apply to farm workers could be fired at will. They be made to work any kinds of hours or no restrictions no health or safety requirements so for them to take on this enormously powerful industry a was a huge talent when the farmworkers decide to go on strike in the Coachella Valley. They don't go to the fields to work. Instead we pick it in demand for better wages. They held up signs march. Saying chant confront the growers. They don't get paid and some workers are even arrested. But in ten days the growers give in the workers get their fifteen cent raise. Let's pick these grapes. After the harvest Larry in the farmer workers head north to the next job the grape fields of Delano. Where they hope to get the same rates but the growers refused to give the farmworkers meeting a community. Space might remember called Filipino Hall. Let's do this. Delano has a thriving Filipino community with lots of farm workers and members of eight walk so they actually establish a Filipino Hall. And at this meeting it is packed. It's mostly Filipinos but there are also some members who aren't the Black Puerto Rican Mexican even white their backgrounds different. But they all have one thing in common. You've suffered enough under the growers and they want real change now. Really neither raised by public actress on this anymore. We are getting any younger. We need better wages and union today. Dude these courses suck breezing my us of here. Larry and the other union leaders here the farm workers but understandably they have concerns if we strike. You might lose your house. You might lose your car. Your family might be on the streets. Hungary. It's going to be tough. Are you sure you want this farm? Workers decide to vote on whether or not they should go on strike back. My name is John Arlington born and raised here in Delano in present day Filipino Hall. I talked to John Arlington. Whose Father Mariano Lila Farmington also known as Bob was a Filipino immigrant and Delano farmworker. He was in Filipino Hall. That Fateful Day my dad and our family were part of a long agriculture workers organizing committee and with Larry. And Leon Philip the Veracruz People Osco and so many others were here in this hall. I'm talking to you now. In September seventh nineteen sixty five where we had a day long second meeting about the strike. And when Larry asked if anyone could make a motion regarding strike my father stood and made the motion to begin the great strike that started in Delano. Bob's made the motion to go on. Strike those in favor of the strike. Stand up and raise your hands high. Okay so what the heck everyone standing up. We're going on a strike you crazy. Bill Pinos Next Day September eighth nineteen sixty five the farmworkers show up at the grape vineyards ready for work according to the documentary Delano Manos by Marissa. Arroyo just like any other day at work. The farmer workers started picking Ripe Grapes on the vines. Then they'd set them down on the ground they move onto the next Bein. Fake Red Grapes. Set them down. Here's a clip from the film with organizer United Farmworkers Vice President. Pete Velasco we pick the ripe grapes and trim it and then move onto the next by under the same thing at moon. Our there are a lot of big grapes under that is when about the thousand five hundred. Pretty Pianos went on strike against the grape growers in

Larry Itliong and the Great Delano Grape Strike

"When I moved to America I was a sophomore and one of the first classes I took in high school was US history. My teacher was weird. We had what he called open book tests so we didn't really have to study and he played movies during those tests. One time I think it was pirates of the Caribbean. This teaching style was so different than what I was used to back home. But that wasn't what struck me the most. It's that when we got to the part of American history set in the Philippines there was just one paragraph in our history book less than half a page dedicated to this period of American imperialism. I think that paragraph mentioned Emilio Aguinaldo who became the first president of the Philippines and the acquisition of the Philippines by the US from Spain in eighteen ninety eight. Let's it nothing in those pages talked about the bloody Philippine American war. There was no mention of the American occupation that took place for almost half a century in definitely didn't talk about Filipinos who came to America during this time not as immigrants but as nationals subjects of American empire the generation of monotones who are promised with the riches of the American dream. But who face the harsh realities of American life instead? I mean when we think about the history of the United States we say oh Boston. The Boston Tea Party. We all learn. It is White America. That's Gail Roma Santa. A writer and publisher who is the CO author of journey for Justice? A new book the chairs the story of a Filipino American labor organizer and Community Leader Left. Outta most American history textbooks the tough-talking man with a moustache glasses and sometimes cigar. Larry Leon. He was an is a Filipino. American leader who united Filipino Americans and other ethnicities Gayle Co wrote for justice with her friend. The late professor and historian Don Shula. Noma Balan- you might remember her from episodes one and two of this podcast. They both grew up in Stockton California and they didn't learn about their cities rich Filipino history until they went away to college. It's why they wrote the book. This book needs to be in schools and in libraries in the hands of our families and our caregivers so that they can say oh. I was part of American history. Obviously I didn't learn about Larry Leong in high school. I don't think I even heard about him in college. And I took Asian American studies yet. Too many Larry. It long is a Filipino. American civil rights hero a leader in that first generation of Filipinos in America and even in the diaspora he led the Delano grape strike. And people don't really know what that means and that really is a point where we had so many Filipinos and their jobs were jeopardy and they had so much to lose. Nobody had health insurance major resources. They didn't have any political clout. They were migrant farm workers on this episode chapter in American history. We should learn about in school. The story of Larry Leon and the great Delano grape strike pivotal moment in the American farm worker movement. Most people have heard that Mexican American labor leaders Cesar Chavez and Dolores. Horta were a big part of this not a lot of folks know that it was Larry it Leong and the Filipino farmworkers. Who Kick started the whole thing in the first place?

That's more in the realm of like actual grimy nece. I had mentioned. There's like sewer. Many mentions of the oncoming oncoming apocalypse and some of them were really backwards or showed like the fact that Dolores Claiborne really really knows her Bible back the front which the whole riot piece shows that like reads the Bible she mentioned Blazing fire balls at one point and then it. It goes on a long reign about something else about the power of insects and that has to do with the fact that in revelations like a whore sized mosquitoes shoot to fire their out of their mouths.

"That's great. We're going to post that on social media After this episode clears obviously we absolutely will Patricia. Reset is the titular character and does a great job. The peace lent itself very well to that medium. they one thing. I think even might not know about opera because Stephen Have you ever been to the upper yes. I've been to the opera. How dare we know? How dare you? Sir Have Daddy well. I've watched a lot online and certainly is not But it's hokey operas czar silly operas get out. There is what people don't understand in the super cut of highlights that you can find on Youtube. There's two parts one is Joe uh-huh singing in silhouette silly wagging his butt and the other in his implying air guitar on an axe which I think is objectively the wrong call that is all we make. ooh artistically ooh baby making me mad. Joe Grew from up in the whole opera. I aw hate it I hate it so much it makes me so upset. It's much more marriage Koroi than it is. Dolores claiming his much more stupid than it is good. They go on record here. Santa Fe opera. You're on fuck can. You're you're on my list. I'm coming for you. It's you and Roger Ebert. I'm coming coming after you Stephen. I don't even like operas but we especially don't like this I don't I listen. Good Opera fucking amazing but this kind of this bell curve of like okay all right visualize visualize with me here. If you're driving. Don't pay attention to that. Pay attention to what I'm about to describe So this is things that are very campy and versus things that are very classy. So on the far left with things that are very campy and very classy and that's the opera and on the far right you have things that are very campy but not considered very classy and the drag shows rape and what I think I think what we should do. Everything else is in the middle. That's where the vast majority of all media is what I think we should do. Is We should take both ends of that. Bell Curve and pin them together just kind of opera drag. I WANNA drag opera. The I know that it was carry made into an operate should have been. I know as a musical which would have been it. Could've been it should be. I WanNa drag Kerry operas telling you So Meghan they can happen. Harry Opera Santa Fe you can you can redeem yourself. This is your moment. Tell you what. If you're the guy that wrote that opera and you write a drag Kerry Opera Bre. I'll be in it. Yeah fuck man role. Raise money for that. I'll quit my job. I don't care what it takes remake. This happen all right. That's all I had to say about that in to battle the book and so this is going to be really rough because usually we're in agreement about which book is better but this battle. The books is Gerald's game versus Dolores Claiborne. And we're GONNA have ourselves a good old-fashioned disagreement because I think the Gerald's game is just a better book which is tough but it's tough because I know that you you disagree with me. I do disagree with you I. It's not that it's not that Gerald's game isn't a masterpiece. It's that Gerald's game is a lot of good good. And then some flaws I think Doris clayborn is one hundred percent flawless deloris. A word of it was wrong. There's no we had no desirable mentioned Dolores. Claiborne is definitely leaner. I'll give you that. There is no fat on Dolores Claiborne. It is is a a very sinked book which is rare for Stephen King. But I think that a lot of what makes Dolores Claiborne. Good good is sub textual and I think that I prefer Stephen King's writing when he comes out and says things about society about the human condition and there is a shit ton of good writing about the human condition in Gerald's game that goes kind of under the radar in Dolores Claiborne. Gerald's game is a double Venti. Cocoa Cloud Makihata with extra whip cream and Dolores. Claiborne is tall ice coffee black. Yeah and that's I would much prefer the second but I totally understand how versus therapy. There is a lot of frills on Gerald's game. I just think that it takes longer to get to it. Central Point like it doesn't wrap up as neatly. I don't think that like like I think Gerald's game is a tension monster I mean. I've never read a book that has me hooked quite the way that Gerald's game does I was not hooked indoors clayborn. I enjoyed it but I did not feel like I didn't. I didn't get the urge to read that whole book today. You know what I mean. That is interesting I did. I did read it in today's So hey that's nobody's GonNa come out on top this time. I think this might be our first ever draw. We think we know that if I had to do it on different criteria because my internal criteria where which do I like better and why right if I had to do it on Do I recommend it more. Okay like we've done this before. If that's our criteria than I I'm maintaining Gerald's game is the recommendation I would. I would say Gerald's game I would more recommend not a general person who I did not know. Yeah I also it's just tough because my internal criteria is which is more Stephen King and I think Gerald's game is more Steve. Gerald's game is more Stephen King Gerald's game is more emotionally reactive. Yes but instead. I'm that's what I'm into. I love a really like like a book. That really kicks. You know I didn't cry. I laughed doors clayborn but I didn't cry right right man. They're both so God damn good gory. Both of them like so like neither of these books win but we win. We Win Battle of the boot. The let's go to recommended feeding. Why do you start I because I've got something different this week? I'm going with Latinos Auto. Oh parts for more amazing main stuff. So I've already talked about activists in wild woman author. Caroline shoot. She wrote beans of Egypt Maine which she got it. Probably my favorite favorite book. Yeah right so I've mentioned on the show before this is another book by her. It's another voice piece set in Maine about you. Know between nineteen in sixty five nineteen eighty five So it's if the really similar actually it was a lot of things that are just the same these books and so it was an easy pick so I struggled with this one because I wanted to do a voice bees like ideally but what was really important to me was that I wanted to recommend a piece piece that was specifically about a woman over the age of sixty and there is so little representation for older older women that I just. I couldn't think of anything that really personally impacted my life. I mean the only thing that I could think was herald MoD and I haven't watched that in so long that I can't can't in good faith say. Oh Yeah I know that peace will not recommend it seldom modest young boys voice though. Yeah Yeah even then even when it's like a it's is not even really about her So here's what I'm doing is I want to flip the script a little bit and I want to encourage y'all to reach out to me and recommend your favorite stories about and from the perspective of women over the age of sixty. That's what I want from this recommended reading goforth. We'll we'll funnel them through social media as they come through Yeah because we need more more stories stories. Police stories are good.

"dolores" Discussed on The Stephen King Boo! Club

"When they are a sizeable portion of Dolores claiborne is devoted to the decisions and actions which lead her to murder. Her husband. Much of this section is not driven by fear. It's driven by empathy for delores and her daughter Hotter Selena and from their complex relationship. There are moments of fear various delusions about the wires in her home and the dust. Bunnies are chilling but those Sir moments in service of delores overall character development. But a funny thing happens at the mid point of the story. There's an eclipse. The same aim apocalypse explored Gerald's game during the eclipse the book definitively switches genres and becomes for fifty or so pages primarily horror. The setup is clear enough. This is a how I did it. Story like Edgar Allan Poe's tell tale heart or sections of Gillian Flynn's gone girl. Dolores describes what it took that day to murder her husband and during that period the primary driving emotion is raw raw fear. Clayborn is all nerves as she goads her husband on to drink heavily when the clips begins in earnest she provokes her husband in a way which she knows oh is will lead to violence. Her husband's strangles her and she runs through the woods. Being chased as the world becomes strange in dark. It's true that her trap works. Joe Falls into the well as planned but he doesn't die in that odd twilight she hears him beg for his life baked for his alcohol and eventually gathered. The will climb back out of the well like some undead creature to take his revenge. She has to bash his head in with Iraq servive. It traumatizes her and it's only once. The eclipse ends that the story once again becomes driven by empathy plot based tensions hand Dolores Claiborne Short story containing only the section during the eclipse. It would have been straight down the line horror. But it's not the eclipse ends and it resumes being capital L. Literature and so the book is not horror but the heart of the story what happens bins during the eclipse sure as hell is Phoenix time minus eighty. I just wanted to hear a dammit. That's I brought it home Within a certain amount. I'm not upset about that. I was like I was reading a log. We like other tackle Custom blinds coming eight more seconds. That's so funny. Yeah I love it. I like that Especially your description of what like a classic literature. Tail is trump times people. Forget that most books don't have aren't John Ri- right. Well I I read and listen to consume so much on reflection that in sometimes it you forget as you know. Reading consumes literature that I forget that were John Pictured. Yeah Jonah Fiction podcast. What made me choose this topic? Is that so. I purchased a very contemporary edition of this book You know this is. Let's see it's assignment interest or imprint. Let me see in its recent enough that it has fucking instagram handle on the back and these are the quotes chooses to advertise quote among kings. Best unforgettable unflinching. San Francisco Chronicle agreed powerful. Time agreed absorbing horror that comes from the real world honest and chilling in Chicago Tribune. I don't know Chicago Tribune. I don't know if someone didn't read the book and wrote that someone you know why because they assumed it was. Yeah Stephen King Stephen King has got to be horror also While I have the book out just want to point out that. This book is dedicated to Stephen. King's mother Ruth Pillsbury King. And I think that's the Swedish it I've ever seen my wife. Sal Yes just completely unrelated and my addition was was to other other people really. Yeah Woo interests. I like that you can just change that shit out. Yeah that's fun so that's all I had to say about that. I don't know it's pretty definitive. I think yeah. I don't know if you have any counter arguments for me but I the others. What am I gonNA feel about that? Let's take it to. Which one do I shoot.

Everyone put on your opera glasses. I'll give you a moment and our boy being next rockets art by this del. Not One person ever listened Including me I'm Steven. Andrew Sano in dime Phoenix Crockett. And this this week we are reading Dolores Claiborne written in Nineteen Ninety two Phoenix. I'M GONNA go ahead and take the main points. Dolores claiborne is a sixty five year old woman who is being interrogated arrogated by two policemen and is dog. Refer is present the unedited manuscript of this nearly ten. Our conversation is the presentation of the novel. delores makes short asides to the main investigator Andy Beset who she knows from her small town and to the Sinaga for Nancy Eh who she hopes will identify with her problems. As a woman delores has been arrested for the possible murder of Vera. A millionaire recluse. For whom MM Dolores served as head of staff for forty years delores knows that Vera simply fell down the stairs but to clear her name. She must confess fast to killing her abusive husband years before she decides to start from the beginning she and Joe Meet in middle. School will begin dating in high school as soon as they're married however it becomes clear that Joe is an abusive alcoholic. delores only stands for for two beatings before nearly branding him with a cream pitcher in front of their only daughter Selena soon after Joe begins to molest their daughter and emotionally abuse their two younger sons. He also steals all the money that Dolores has saved at cleaning jobs for their kids. Kid's Education Vera. Millionaire that delores works for tells dolores that Joe should have an accident and gives her the day off during a solar eclipse Vera herself prepared for her children to visit during the eclipse. But they never show delores sets a trap for Joe such that that he would fall down a well. He doesn't die and while she figures out what to do. She is overcome by vision of a young girl being molested by her a father and she knows that it is real. Joe Manages to crawl out of the well and grab her foot and she bashes his head then with Iraq. At this point she asks the investigator to share some of the gym being. She assumed he keeps in his desk. He reluctantly obliges delores puts up an act and reports Joe Missing when his body is discovered she's interrogated by state police chiefs. There isn't enough evidence. Didn't convict but the town and indeed her daughter Selena believe that she is guilty. She gets nasty phone calls and once a group of teens in a truck truck fires a gun over her house things die down over time but she does not repair her relationship with Selina who grows up to become an alcoholic. Golic is well decades after the incident with Joe delores and still works for Vera. There is mind has never been solid. But she's degrading quickly during one of her increasingly frequent fits of delusions Vera freaks out thinking that the dust bunnies in her home home or going to attack her and she falls down the stairs. She doesn't die though and asks Dolores to put her out of her misery. Dolores this goes to get a rolling pin but when she returns Vera has passed. The mailman seized Laura's holding the rolling pin and his suspicious mm-hmm. Her case is not helped when various financial manager calls and says the delores is the sole heir to Vera's thirty million dollar estate after finishing her story. Dolores donate to the entire some to an orphanage. That Vera was a donor of delores is cleared of all charges Phoenix what's going on with alike background thumping noises. Is that like your cats are fucking around. Yeah I try. I tried to put them in the bathroom and then now we can still hear them bathroom. So I'm trying to put them on the other side of the house but that's what I tell you what I tell you I tell you. Let's talk about it in full darker Argument structure. This book is so good. This is really. Yeah Yeah I liked it. I liked it less than Phoenix. Liked it. But that's because it's about the main this thing that we've done so far which is saying something that's it really he is and you know we're switching places because last time Stephen Dodd the book was amazing and I thought it was fine now. We're kind of switching places but I could read this in her voice like the whatever dolores claiborne is real voice was I could read it in that voice. Yeah I couldn't because I didn't grow up with the dialect in something that's important to note about. This book is that it's written phonetically in dialects so a lot of times the word and will be substituted for the letter and and stuff like that. I didn't I didn't take extensive notes on those kinds of things because we're going to be doing an extended version of our down East wisdom main ism section later and I figured we hit it then the biggest thing we keep in mind yeah good examples. Various spellings of the word forehead. Because she would have said it was he. Can she keep. She loves his Far Ahead Far yes. That's it is that I really don't have the perspective on Matt. 'cause I just don't have the dialect in my brain so it made it like harder work for me to read. I think you would love the audiobook Francis Stern Hagan. You're probably away right. It also includes water drinking drawers opening paper shuffling and radio drama. Yeah and this really asking to be made into a radio drama. Because it's in that format like it's directly from the SINAGA refers typed out. Notes is what it seems like. No page breaks known the crap and I didn't I didn't realize how much I relied on. Chapter is in page breaks to rest my brain until I was like maybe two thirds so this book and I was like like give me something to hold onto you know. I do think though that this is the first book in Stephen King's entire Pantheon as we've covered it that I personally believe is not one word overwritten. Yes I think everywhere it is is valuable and it's not that Long No. It's the first book we've done so far where we got to the end and I wanted more everything else we've gotten to the end and I'm like all right even masterpieces eases. I'm like I'm fall. I can't do anymore for sure now. Normally this is where we would do down east wisdom which is where we talk about. All of the main `ISMs in this book the Phoenix Wchs. How did you count seventy one seventy one? So that's more than we can usually do for our little five minute thing here ear so instead what we're GONNA do is we're just gonNA move that whole segment to the off week. That'll be your bonus for next week so I hope you like the main stuff jeff because Laurie Laurie. There's a lot of it in this one. Which of course brings US straight to? Sweet screams are best of section.

Urban Legend: The Friendly Stranger

"Today we examine a family of urban legend what's that dates back to the nineteenth century the friendly stranger and variation the Harry armed hitchhiker amp the fear strangers up to eleven offering a story about mistaken identity acting on instinct and the dangers of taking people at their word in the friendly stranger a woman charms her way into your car but as you drive along you realize something is off in the Harry armed hitchhiker variation. She's far hairier than she should be. It's a sign of deception of evil intentions and the vulnerable woman who finds the hitchhiker in her car is right to mistrust and fear them the of a false woman is a common trope in horror stories inspired by the eroneous belief that an evil man needs only to put on a dress and makeup in order to be seen as trustworthy while it has little basis in reality this boogeyman has even found its way into politics with many ascribing militias Tint to transgender women simply because of a trend in fiction but if we examined the deception of the person in the backseat without the specific except gender identity we get a far more nuanced take an examination of the Good Samaritan Pulse in an era where we rarely know our names always let alone the people we run into at the mall at the side of the road or more in our rideshare in its simplest elements the friendly streets sure is a story about a woman struggling to decide how nice a person she can be without risking her own safety does she help someone when they ask for it despite all the potential warning signs and does being a good person matter if you're dead me was convinced that black Friday was one of the circles of hell she hated the nonstop crowds the cross Genre Smith music and the energy that radiated the store as everyone struggled to finish their shopping and find the best possible deals on everything she wasn't even shopping for gifts this was a gift to herself she had waited months for designer chenille sweater to go on sale then she was ready to fight the ninth circle of hell to get it usually a trip like this would take ten minutes instead it had taken several hours to even get to the entrance of the store people hovered around the metal gate to the poor retail workers struggled to open it she could see the fear in their eyes and she for them me tried to hang back but the crowd surged around her when they saw someone who looked like a manager step towards the door it was a false alarm arm but they pushed forward anyway elbows came towards her face she did her best to duck away from them but one swung straight into her eye the person behind her pushed into her other started pushing from the sides the gate hadn't even opened yet as it started to rise people began to duck under the opening the rest of the crowd devolved into chaos mia was shoved from all sides she tried to keep her feet steady but her balanced never been great to begin with she fell into the person in front of her but two of them tumble to the ground MIA felt pressure on her feet then her back then her arms desperate shoppers were stepping right over her she tried to stand but someone's foot pushed down again she covered her head with her hands and prayed for it all to be over more feed pounded across her body she felt the gentle sure of someone trying to step on her head before they changed directions mia curled up into a ball shaking slowly but footsteps began to read indeed there was enough clearance for her stand up dark bruises for blooming hunter arms she was sure there were several matching ones on her legs and torso oh it hurt when she breathed mia staggered into the store like a Zombie praying that our beloved sweater wasn't sold out there was still one left in her size she looked left then right then plucked Iraq and healthy close to chest lost child she headed for the checkout the cashier smiled at her in sympathy they both agreed that the holidays brought out the worst in people mia paid for her sweater and headed out of the store into the chaos of the mall parking lot she stepped onto the sidewalk only to be nearly flattened via White Suv with the Rudolph the red nosed reindeer knows an Antler is affixed to it she threw herself backward nearly slipping on the black ice the parking lot this just was interior day but she had this winter and that's what mattered she took a deep breath and continue forward she wanted to be home with their cheesy made for TV Christmas movies like yesterday she passed several Honda fits she walked the rose but none of them belonged to her finally she spotted the familiar worn out presidential campaign sticker on the back bumper the card was already on me a check your pockets her keys were still there maybe someone else had the same sticker but there was it didn't the back that had come from backing up to close to her mother's planters it was her car head to be she approached I slowly ahead poked up over the rear seats panic started to set in she hadn't taken anyone to the store today way as MIA headed towards her car she got a better look at the person's bad short gray curls me tap on the back seat window in elderly woman stared up at her deep lines carved into her face she didn't look confused instead she looked at ease content happy to be in the back of a stranger's car me did her best to explain I mean why this wasn't where she was supposed to be but the woman who gave her name as Dolores politely refused to
