"Responded to the show. Yeah, well, I couldn't have guessed that, I think, when I was cast, you know, I really couldn't have guessed that the response for the show as a whole and also particularly for gene was going to be as strong as it has been. And again, I feel like she completely came to me out of the blue and I didn't quite get it at first. I didn't quite get the show. I didn't quite get how a therapist who was a well respected professional therapist could be so morally ambiguous in her personal life and with her son and once I got it and it was almost even once the audience got it and embraced it once I got to see that oh, I almost felt like I saw it through their eyes. It was like oh that's what this is. That's what this is going to be. Oh my God, I'm so lucky that I'm on it. Daniel. I kind of felt like it was one of those since then it's just been a delight. I love working with a suit. I work with the most and with Nicole who plays and plays yakob and is now the father of my child, which is a whole I haven't even begun to address that whole storyline yet because that comes up in the next season and I haven't read anything yet. So I have no idea whose childhood actually is. And so, and I think it probably has influenced a bit, some of the other stuff that has been coming my way. So. You mentioned not quite getting it at first. What do you think you initially did not get about sex education then maybe has now clicked for you? I was a bit and I'm only saying this because I was proved wrong. I wouldn't be talking about it in this way. If I wasn't proved wrong, I was worried that it was too broad. That the comedy was too on the nose that it was, you know, all the things that and then I suddenly realized I'm not the demographic. And even though I'm not the demographic, there are a lot of people who are my age who really, really respond to it. It really has kind of smashed through all of the demographics. And I watched documentaries. And that's pretty much all I watch. And so to go from documentaries about the Iraq War, to go to watching sex education. That's a big leap. That's a big leap. And so it took me a while. And now I hope you don't mind, I have to ask you one something just about the X files, the show has such a following still, all these years later, and I'm just curious what you kind of make of that and what do you think it is that audiences, both longtime fans and people who are still newly discovering the show, what do you think they're taking from it? What to you is the reason for the show's longevity? I mean, that's amazing to hear. I mean, I know that die hard fans who have been with us from the beginning are still with still consider themselves fans. I still have people saying to me, you know, I grew up loving the X fellows and et cetera. There was a period of time when I was doing comic cons where I suddenly realized that there was a whole lot of people my age or older who would come up and say, this is my son. I introduced him to X files just a couple years ago because he's now 13 years old and he's a big fan now and I'm so glad could he take a picture with us or something. And so, you know, people who were die hard fans introducing their kids, their offspring, you know, almost like a rights of passage. And then there's a whole slew of kids who are finding it in their own right. And also I swear a conspiracy theories are not weakening. They're getting stronger and stronger all the time and particularly government conspiracy theories or related to government. And the dynamic between Mulder and Scully and frisson between them. It holds up. It really does, it's quite a, it's a rare thing to see when it's quite that pronounced and enjoyable. And stretched out over such a long period of time. Yeah, you know, I feel what really ties together so many of your roles is that you seem to always be playing women who are very modern and progressive in their moment and many of them are even kind of ahead of their time living life on their own terms and I'm wondering, do you feel like you're specifically drawn to that? Kind of a character and do you even feel like that's sort of a reflection of who you are? Oh, that's interesting, you know? I can never actually looked at it in that way before that's very interesting. I mean, I'm used to hearing from interviewers, you know, you always play strong women, but you're right to zero in on that aspect of it. That's true. That's true. And it actually goes back to your previous question. And when I, you know, when we were talking about staying within the lines, these women are not, you know, a lot of these women don't stay within the designated lines. And I have no doubt because it's me who's doing the choosing that must have something to do with why it's me that's playing them. Julian, thank you so much for joining us today. It's been such a pleasure, talking to you. Thank you for having me. I really enjoyed that.

Let's pick things up back where we left off with Gillian Anderson. She recently starred in the First Lady as Eleanor Roosevelt, but it's far from the first time she's played a real-life character. So Eleanor Roosevelt isn't the first biopic or true life role you've played. You've done a good handful, what draws you to these roles? Well, I think I got one other one on my slate that's in development, but I think I might pause on that for a while. I don't really want to be the go to actress for that necessarily. I think it's just the particular women that I've been asked to play primarily I think that really interests me. And so it's really a matter of just one job at a time making those decisions. But I do enjoy it. The pressure and the expectation obviously is going to be greater and but all you can do is show up and do the best that you can do and then you have to let go of what people's reactions are. And if there happens to be another extraordinary opportunity, again, I might say yes, but I might take a break from it for a while and play some some psychopaths. Because your role playing Johanna, the mother of Catherine the Great on the great, both is just so fun, but also so different from these other sort of real life roles that you play. There's an element of camp to that show and also they take a lot of liberties with the historical record. What was playing that role like in relationship to these other real-life roles you've had? It doesn't really compare in a way because of the liberty and also because there's not all that much material to be found about her and certainly isn't any video to study. Or audio to listen to. And yet at the same time, there are other details that, of course, one has to fill in all the blanks. And so then it just becomes trying to fit into the mood of the show and not feel like you stand out in any way and to just kind of have fun with Elle and Nicholas and make the most of the fabulous dialog and the fabulous costumes. Seriously. Also you notice. I am reckoned to. I hoped that's what it was. Russians can be quite fair to turn native. Come. Let me show you my palace. Your career now, I mean it stretches back to when you were on the X files, but it seems like the last maybe 5 years or so you've hit this kind of whole new gear that you've had your role is on a Roosevelt, your role in sex education, you won an Emmy playing Margaret Thatcher, and you even were nominated for Olivier Award for your work on stage and all about eve. What is this moment meant to you? Does it feel to you like something sort of happened or changed in the last few years for you? Yes, I mean, it was a bit further back than that. And I think it was in, I remember it was 2016, which was just a bit for the back then 5 years. And because in that year, I was getting to play blanche the same year that I was in street car named desire. And in the same year that I was getting to play this character that I put, there was a series I did called the fall, which was on BBC over here and also Netflix eventually over here in the states. And I loved playing her so much. And I remember thinking, if I die this year, I'll be happy. The fact that I get to play these two completely different and completely extraordinary women for completely different reasons to play one, an absolute hot mess and the other one, everything supposedly completely under control. And a real force for feminism. I felt if it all ends now, either for me or in my career, I've done what I've come out here to do. And since then, I've been as lucky with various gigs and two of my favorite things is to get to move between theater and film and television and it's a very lucky girl to have these opportunities. Is that something you feel like you've strived for? I mean, in a way, is it surprising to feel like you have, I mean, this would now be your second or third big moment in your career. And I'm just, are you surprised to sort of get this sort of like new moment in your career like this? What's interesting is that because I feel like there are certain things that I haven't had a chance to do yet that kind of that keeps me hungry in a way or it keeps me reaching for the ultimate goal kind of thing. And so I think when that happens, I will be, you know, I will be probably a shocked shocked and surprised and even though it's been a lifelong dream, et cetera, I think that would be a moment where I I'll be speechless. In the meantime, it really as much as anything just feels like it's putting one foot in front of the other and being grateful. I don't want to jinx it, but what is it that you feel you have left to do? There's so much. You're so much. Well, one thing I want to be sure to ask you about is your role on sex education, which is a show that has a real fan base. And I think people really have responded to your role in particular. It's exciting to see a character of a woman in her middle age who really has this rich personal life and that her sex life can be a part of that. What does that role meant to you? And in particular, the way that fans and audiences have

"Who basically educated young bright female minds and encouraged them and taught them how to find their own voices and to speak up for themselves and to debate and to think critically and her childhood and the sorrow of her childhood she also lost a younger brother traumatically and there was just a lot of loneliness and sorrow and low self esteem that she battled with for the rest of her life. And she battled with depression and what she referred to as her griselda moods. And then it was 13 years, I think, after she was married to Franklin, her beloved husband, she found out that he was having an affair with her secretary. And that really was a big turning point for her because she was absolutely devastated. You know, I think so much of that life experience contributed to her compassion for the disenfranchised and for the areas of the population that despite the fact that she grew up as a Roosevelt and had a voice as a Roosevelt and was listened to as a Roosevelt despite the fact that she was a woman. She really paved a way to be of service to those that were less fortunate than her. I mean, one thing that comes through in the show is that people are often telling Eleanor and the other first ladies to sort of stay in their place that there's an idea of what they should be like and what they should be doing and whenever they sort of go outside their lane a little bit people get very upset with them and I'm wondering how that sort of resonated for you and if that's something that you feel you've encountered in your own career that people have an idea of what they think you should be doing the kind of roles you should be taking and how you sort of grapple with that. You know, I don't think I've ever stayed in my lane a figuratively and literally I remember being in a therapy session with my mom and I just kind of working through some stuff and the question coming up about why did you let this happen for Gillian at age 8 or whatever it was in her response was there was never ever telling Julian what she could and couldn't do. She was going to do what she was going to do. But fair enough, I think that's certainly true now. It was true then, you know, despite growing up in a certain degree of poverty, I have led a privileged life. You know, I haven't had those experiences in that way. Those hurdles that way either we were able to get loans for school, we were able to be able to get into a decent high school. I was able to, you know, all that and in terms of career. If I had done what other people said, I'd probably wouldn't have ended up in the UK. Probably wouldn't have started doing theater right off the bat of doing X files and probably would have gotten a publicist. And all those things. So sometimes it's okay and one can still succeed, even if you don't tow the party line. I know, one more thing about Eleanor Roosevelt, over the decades, there's been a lot of debate among historians about the exact nature of Eleanor's relationship with the journalist Lorena Hickok played on the show by lily rabe and the show isn't explicit exactly, but it makes it very clear that they're more than just Friends and I'm curious for you how you felt about sort of maybe how you and lily sort of define that relationship for ourselves and whether to you there was any ambiguity there or how that kind of relationship resonated to you. I would say that it's pretty explicit given the fact that they made out and slept together. That's pretty explicit in terms of the nature of their relationship. There is a book that exists that is their love letters to each other and as it is understood that Hickok had destroyed the most provocative of them after they were no longer in relationship. And so those didn't end up getting into the book. And so I think everyone felt that it was pretty safe, accurate territory to depict women who were, you know, really, really long time companions, both in friendship and in love and in romantic love. I've been decorating. Nice desk is gorgeous. It's all she would like it. All of this is for you, hick. Thank you. But the thing about Eleanor is that Lorena wasn't the only person that she had a queer relationship with and there's a lot of speculation about her relationship with her bodyguard Earl Miller who she spent many, many, many hours and hours and hours with and writing into the hills and going on a holidays and trips together and I think there was a deep love and companionship whether or not it was intimate. I'm not sure if anybody knows. You know, she just she pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable then and what is still acceptable today in terms of romantic love and companionship and so I think what the show does is it celebrates it actually in a really beautiful, sweet, touching way as you see these two women completely taken with each other and on the one hand, having to hide it. On the other hand, with Eleanor being in the most important house in the land, moving her into the bedroom next to hers. That's completely audacious. And so, you know, I think she was unbelievably bold and, you know, as it happens a lot of her friends who were activists and politicos were also gay women. And her friendships with them started before she may have even identified as being gay herself.

"Welcome to the show. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. And now with the regards to the First Lady, tell me a little about what your first thoughts were just when you heard about the role of Eleanor Roosevelt and the premise of the show. Well, I think when I first heard about it, I heard about it in terms of somebody else having been cast. And I remember thinking, on the one hand, what a great idea that is. And then when that person was unable to do it and they came to me, I thought that doesn't make any sense to me because Eleanor was almost 6 foot tall and I'm 5 foot three and surely I need to tell them this and they will think twice about casting me. But I had a conversation with Susanna beer and she seemed that there's not much that one can talk Susanna beer out of if she has her mind set on something and that was certainly the case and I'm very pleased that I said yes and it was there anything done to like cheat your height in the production? No. Because I was so concerned about it, I did speak to them about ramps and whatnot and it was just really an untenable situation. I know that people have done it before, but there are so many situations and outdoor situations and that and the other. And so we basically had me in higher heels than she might I mean she didn't really wear heels. She wore it very low heeled shoes and we tried to put me in square heels that didn't look entirely outlandish for a woman who never wore them. Just at least to get me even remotely close to the height of most of the rest of the actors that I was working with, let alone to tower over them, which is what she did most of the time. So I had to completely let go of my self consciousness about it. And now the structure of the show is three first ladies on a Roosevelt, you play. Betty Ford and Michelle Obama was totally separate storylines, but did you come to see a way in which they are united? Like to you, like what sort of brings those three women together? I did. I mean, when we were shooting it, I was not privy to the other storylines. I mean, I don't know about the other actors, but I didn't see the other scripts. And so I just trusted that there was a through line and that there was somebody in charge of piecing it all together and making it make sense. And I guess what I came to learn as I saw the final product and an ADR and et cetera was one of the biggest through lines, the most obvious through lines are about these women finding a place for themselves in a role that at least before Eleanor didn't, it didn't pre exist. She really properly carved out a space for herself and for women going forward who would find themselves in that position. So it was soothing as one thing. It's quite another to lead a country out of its darkest hour. Well, you were instrumental in helping crafting my message. So I'm grateful for you. We make a good thing. Yes, we do. In the series you see Betty Ford and Michelle Obama, they still had to find their own voice. And their own ways of making a mark and feeling like they had purpose. And that they could make a difference, both in the role and outside of the room. One of the First Lady with Gillian Anderson, after the break. Queer life in Montreal was wild. Montreal in the 90s was a great time. But it had a dark side. It was not a safe city for gay people back then. But what else was behind a series of deaths in the city? Some of these killing gay men we want to know why? I'm Francis Ford, and this is the village de Montreal murders. Available now. Hi, this is David Pearson.

Well, as Eleanor says of being First Lady, that's not a job. That's my circumstance. And one of the things that really comes through in the show is how instrumental she was in defining what a modern First Lady can be simply, as you're saying, like the fact that each First Lady has to find what the role is going to be for herself. Yeah, yeah. Precisely. And then how did you prepare to play the role of Eleanor Roosevelt? Was it similar to how, for example, you prepared to play Margaret Thatcher on The Crown? Yeah, very similar. I started at the beginning of their lives and, and it's actually quite remarkable how much a childhood influences and is reflected in how one is as an adult and it's fascinating in acutely studying to seemingly very powerful effective women that being Thatcher and Eleanor Roosevelt to see the degree to which even later in life, even in their 50s, 60s, you know, they are still influenced by influencers of their childhoods. In how they are in the world in how they approach their work. Is there an example of something that you feel that you learned about Eleanor Roosevelt's childhood that you sort of like were able to bring forward into her adult life? What was something that you feel like you learned about her? Well, you know, she had an incredibly unhappy childhood. She had a very challenging relationship with her mother who told her from a very young age that she was ugly. And that she wasn't going to make it as a spouse in the way that maybe other women would. And so therefore our mother was going to insist that she focus on her study, so that at least she had that to offer. And then both her mother and her father died within two years of each other when she was 8 and ten. And her father was, he wasn't around very much, but he was her everything. He was her beloved and he died and I think 34th. And her mother died first. She was sent away when her father died to live with her grandmother who was very strict and had her working with the help in the house. And it wasn't really until she was sent away to London actually to a school that was run by a French woman, a lesbian, French woman called madam,

"Next couple of weeks, we're gonna be featuring an episode of our sister podcast the envelope because it's Emmy season. So the more we could talk about Hollywood by the LA times, the better. Today we hear from Gillian Anderson, I've been a fan of hers since I saw her on screen and the X files and also her cameo as an X files character The Simpsons. Now she's playing the role of Eleanor Roosevelt in the new show the First Lady. Jillian's here to talk about how she channeled the former First Lady for time on the X files, the Netflix showed sex education and so much more. Yvonne, when you think of cool, who do you think of? Oh man. I feel like I want to be edgy and say cha Diaz from the Sex and the City revival. But I won't do that to us. I'm just going to say the cast of euphoria. What about you, Mark? Well, when I think of cool, I always think of people who've just been out there doing their own thing. And today's guest has been going her own way for decades. From the X files, which shot her to fame in the 90s to her recent work on the showtime series, the First Lady, Gillian Anderson has seemed like such a free independent person who won't let anyone dictate what her career or her life should look like. The First Lady, which was directed by Suzanne beer, is structured to move between the lives of elder Roosevelt, played by Gillian alongside Betty Ford, played by Michelle Pfeiffer and Michelle Obama, played by Viola Davis. You see how the role of the First Lady has evolved over the years? Well, I see. I'm good enough to get him here, but not good enough to keep going. You have your own schedule to worry about your own duties. Well, good. So he's finally decided on my job and the administration. Yes, uh, First Lady. That's not a job, Louie. That's my circumstance. There definitely is a lot of the more things change the more they stay the same vibes to it as they all face challenges of being underestimated, overlooked and not listened to. Ah, yes, the joys of being a woman. It really was one of the best things about the conversation with Gillian, as someone who's been pretty famous for quite a while now, she really has a great perspective on the evolution of what it's been like to be a woman in Hollywood, including the way the media treated women from the 90s to today. Yeah, you know, I have to say, Dana Scully was one of my earliest TV role models. And I remember that Gillian really developed a voice and advocated for herself over the pay discrepancy between her and her ex files costar David Duchovny back then, and yet again, with the revival in 2016, and I have to think that Eleanor Roosevelt would have approved of that. Yeah, but Jillian is definitely not living in the past. I mean, she's recently reached this just really incredible new moment in her career. She won an Emmy for playing Margaret Thatcher on The Crown. She appeared on the show sex education, which she said surprised even her. And most recently had a just hilarious turn

"Eleanor's words about the challenges of undoing a mistake were prescient. Despite the loyalty questionnaire, military victories in the Pacific and the fact that War Department officials had not seen the concerns about military necessity for internment borne out, it wasn't until late 1944 after much bureaucratic deliberation that executive order 90 66 was lifted. A report by a congressionally established commission later confirmed that not a single documented act of espionage sabotage or 5th column activity was committed by those order 90 66 targeted. It concluded that race prejudice war hysteria and a failure of political leadership resulted in a grave injustice against them. We know that in periods of war, periods of pandemic, periods of economic downturn, racism increases against Asian Americans. Jiang says last year, hate crimes against Asians rose by 339%, according to a report by the center for the study of hate and extremism. A November 2021 survey by stop AAPI hate, which Jiang cofounded found that one in 5 Asian Americans reported hate incidents since the start of the pandemic. Eleanor's defense of Japanese Americans in that prevailing climate of hostility created added risks for her too. Eleanor is the most beloved and most hated First Lady up until that time, says black, pointing to her refusal of Secret Service protection, instead choosing to carry her own pistol, despite constant death threats against her. But fear has many facets, constructive, and destructive, that emerge under duress. Asked by a reader what she feared most, the First Lady responded that it was to be afraid afraid physically or mentally or morally and allow myself to be influenced by fear instead of by my honest convictions..

"How Eleanor Roosevelt worked to stop her husband approving Japanese internment camps during World War II by francine juana. In the aftermath of the Attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, rumors of sabotage and imminent further attacks found fertile ground in the minds of a nervous American public. In a press conference shortly after inspecting the damage, secretary of the navy, Frank Knox, attributed without evidence, their precision in hitting military targets to a 5th column in Hawaii, who had aided the enemy. Speculation and panic proliferated fishermen aiding the Japanese Navy, farmers, poisoning vegetables, and strikes on power lines and other critical infrastructure. Amid this frenzied atmosphere, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt appealed for calm. She traveled to California just days after the attack and made a point to meet and be photographed there with Japanese Americans, a decision that angered many. Eleanor, who decried foolish prejudices about other races. Once again, implored readers of her newspaper and magazine columns that those of Japanese ancestry must not feel that they have suddenly ceased to be Americans, and that such a crisis was the time for really believing in the Bill of Rights and making it a reality for all American citizens regardless of race. Those rights were in a precarious place within her husband's administration. The government almost immediately froze many Japanese Americans assets, but she convinced the Treasury Department to allow withdrawals for critical living expenses, and when she returned to Washington, she conferred with numerous officials attempting to counter the momentum for sweeping action against Japanese Americans. But other prominent voices continued to echo the drum beat of suspicion. In February of 1942, influential writer Walter lippmann amplified Knox's warnings of a 5th column comprised of immigrants and their descendants and criticized Washington for hesitating to impose mass in internment of these enemy aliens. Fellow columnist Westbrook pegler, likened him to a contemporary poll revere and declared to hell with habeas corpus until the danger is over. This rhetoric mirrored internal pressures on president Franklin D. Roosevelt. General John dewitt, who led the western defense command, wrote on February 14th, 1942, that the Japanese race is an enemy race who regardless of birthplace would be ready to die for Japan. He dismissed the lack of evidence of any such plots as an elaborate ruse designed to create a false sense of security. Earl Warren then California's attorney general agreed that Japanese Americans were ideally situated to carry into execution a tremendous program of sabotage on a mass scale. Such racially charged language tapped into long-standing resentment and prejudices. Despite comprising a small percentage of the population, Japanese Americans were despised as economic competitors, says Greg Robinson. Professor of history at lunar city to Quebec a Montreal and author of by order of the president. For decades, Japanese immigrants had faced a host of laws barring them from land ownership, citizenship, and further immigration. Antecedents of the Chinese exclusion act of 1882 that targeted immigrant laborers. I think the incarceration of Japanese Americans really was an outcome of the yellow peril stereotype that was fomented by politicians and institutionalized in other policies, directed against Asians in the U.S., adds Russell Jiang, Professor of Asian American studies at San Francisco state university..
The History of US Presidential Transportation
"First us president of any sort to fly in an airplane was theodore roosevelt. It was rather short flight as airplanes at the time didn't have a very long range and it was probably one of the more dangerous. Flights ever attempted by president sitting or former come over after this short sightseeing flight. Us presidents didn't do any flying. It would be another thirty three years before an actual sitting. Us president would get on an airplane. The first airplane designated for presidential use was purchased in nineteen thirty three it was a douglas dolphin amphibious aircraft and it was operated by the us navy as there was no air force at the time. The co name. It was given was r d two. It could seat four passengers and there was a small sleeping compartment. The interior was custom made for presidential use with leather seats. It was stationed at the anacostia naval airbase in washington. Dc until nineteen thirty nine and during that time it was never once used by the president to be fair. Fdr was in a wheelchair and getting in and out of an airplane especially a small amphibious plane was probably something that he wasn't keen to do however he did eventually take a flight the very first airplane flight by a sitting. Us president took place on january. Eleventh nineteen forty-three when franklin roosevelt flew on. The dixie clipper was a commercial boeing. Three fourteen clipper which was operated by pan. Am he flew fifty five hundred miles to the casablanca conference in morocco to meet with winston churchill and charles de gaulle. The flight was done in three stages any flu rather than took a ship because it was considered safer than risking german u boats in the atlantic after the trip the army air force didn't want to rely on commercial airlines for presidential transportation. They proposed the president. Use a modified. C eighty seven liberator express heavy bomber. The plane was dubbed the guess where to when the secret service reviewed the safety record of the plane. They rejected it. For presidential use. The plane was used for carrying the first lady. Eleanor roosevelt however on a trip to latin america. But it never carried the president. The secret service then approved a douglas. C fifty four skymaster which was a transport plane used in the war. It was named the sacred cow ended. Had sleeping quarters are radiotelephone and a lift for getting roosevelt in and out of the plane in his wheelchair. The only time you used it was to travel to the yalta conference in february of nineteen forty five. This plane is on display at the museum. At the wright patterson air force base outside dayton
Being the best with Tony Herbert, "Soldier"
"Podcast to seventy three. We were with anthony. Herbert tony herbert. Also known ass and we started off his journey from a kid growing up in pennsylvania surf. You haven't listened to podcasts. To seventy three goal of that right now. He tried to join the marines at fourteen. Fourteen years old credit eventually joined the army at seventeen off. The korean war went from private to master sergeant. All kinds of heroic actions suffered all kinds of wounds shot hit with frag white phosphorus burns and also bayoneted multiple times including one bayonet stabbed that broke off in his chest. He in the korean war served as a platoon leader even though he was just a young enlisted guy and eventually at the end of that podcast and at the end of that part of his life. Us pulled off the battlefield. One of the most decorated soldiers of the war sent on a morale at it was basically morale tour and i were flown back to the to the white house. President truman and then basically went to london and antwerp in brussels and the hague and all the other european allies that were fighting alongside america in the korean war along the way he met. Mrs eleanor roosevelt. She encouraged him to go to college. He kind of agreed of the quotes. He says in the book is he. He agreed because he was already master sergeant in the army and he said what am i going to do. Sit around the enlisted man's club telling stories about korea so he was sort of not not over it but he realized that he'd kinda done what he was going to do. So he ends up getting assigned as an rotc instructor at a high school in denver because he liked to ski goes to the third ranger class. That ever happened. He was in. He ends up getting married to his hometown. Sweetheart mary grace starts going to college or he then he gets out of the army then starts going to college at the university of pittsburgh while he's there he writes a book called conquest. No war nowhere. Which was his first book about the korean war which he later rewrote which we covered. What when it was rewritten was called the making of a soldier. That was podcast to seventy three for the most part worked at a steel mill at night while he was going to college and then eventually commissioned as an officer in the pennsylvania national guard. Shout out to the To two eight iron soldiers all right so so then he goes to the. He's back kind of in the army and he gets them warnings at the army's different now you know the war is over. The good people got out. We just left with people. That shouldn't even be in the army that got those kind of warnings but he stayed in. He loves being a soldier he wants to be. A soldier. goes the basic army. Infantry course wins nine out of ten awards there including the leadership trophy which is the leadership. Trophy is awarded by the other students. Like the other students select. Who deserves this leadership trophy. Then he gets assigned as a ranger instructor and he starts. He starts in the mountain phase. And so today we're going to be reading so the first book that we covered we covered a little bit so he's written two books he's written. Three one was conquest to know where that one got rewritten. As the making of a soldier that was the bulk of what we read last time. This time we're gonna read from his second book primarily and it's just called soldier called soldier and lots of lessons learned but as i mentioned in the first podcast in two seventy three. There's some serious lessons learned about life and things get really crazy when he goes to vietnam as a battalion commander and we will get there all right so here we go go go to the book soldier written by anthony be herbert and he says this teaching young men the essentials of mountain climbing combat and survival was more of a learning experience for me than for them. I began discovering things about the resources in me as well as the way the army was moving. I was an

The Spotlight Effect: No one is paying attention to you
"Eleanor roosevelt once. Said you must do the thing you think you cannot do. I'm gonna tell you a little story about the beginning days of this podcast in twenty sixteen. I began this podcast on a complete wim. I noticed that. I had more freedom and flexibility with my time when i became an entrepreneur and i felt compelled to do something that gave back. Podcasting was becoming more popular at the time. And i wanted to give it a try but i knew absolutely nothing about how to do a podcast. I didn't know how to record. I didn't know how to edit. I didn't know how to get my episode out there once it was created. I didn't know how to book gas. How to interview people how to promote myself how to collaborate with other podcasters and on and on and on but i did it anyway and i sucked it was objectively bad and occasionally i actually go back to those early days of the podcast and i listened to my initial episodes. I cringe my way through them. They are awful but the thing. Is you want to know how many people listen to my first episodes back then less than twenty less than twenty downloads per episode and compared to what things look like. Now that's nothing yet so many when we stumble through something that's new or big or unfamiliar or ambiguous. We think everyone is watching us. We second-guessed and pick apart our decisions behaviors and failures because we feel like we are on a stage for everyone to see and to some extent. That's true. I mean in business and in anything we publicly do. Our actions and their results are typically available for people to see but in reality very peop- very few people are actually watching the stage that you think you're on it's as though ninety. Five percent of the audience is facing away from you. They're not even watching so today on this episode. I want to focus on something called the spotlight effect. This is the tendency we have to overestimate. How much other people notice about us. We tend to think there's a spotlight on us at all times highlighting. All of our mistakes are are flaws for all the world to see and to illustrate this effect. Let's take a really quick detour into some research conducted by a set of psychologists cornell in their study they had students where t shirts that either had flattering or potentially embarrassing images depicted on them and after wearing the shirts around in public. The students were asked to estimate how many people would remember what was on their shirt. And guess what they significantly over estimated. They believe that more people were paying attention to them than actually were. This is the spotlight effect and this tendency of ours can impact the decisions we make the risks we take and are alternate success in business. Now i began this episode with that quote from eleanor roosevelt. For a reason. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Because that is a near constant in business one of the big challenges and businesses that we constantly bump up against obstacles that we think we can't overcome and then somehow we do them. But here's the thing if you're constantly having to overcome barriers and move through obstacles that are new and bigger than what you're used to an ambiguous and difficult it's inevitable that you'll stumble a bit or even fail the first or second or fifteenth time and as humans. We're social beings. It's baked into our dna. Our minds use a handful of tricks to get us to be overly concerned with the thoughts and opinions and judgments of others and the spotlight effect is one of those tricky little tricks. And there's no time when that's more apparent than when you're constantly having to stumble over barriers and obstacles that are new ambiguous and difficult the fear and anxiety that it can bring. I mean it's crippling. And if we give into our minds overreacting tendencies. We can quickly be pulled into a cycle of paralysis over analyzing our every move waiting until the path is one hundred percent clear before we take the first step and exactly. None of that is conducive to building a successful business. You'll make me. You'll hear me make this next point repeatedly on these friday episodes business success is born out of failure. You see failure in business isn't really failure. It's a lesson. It's impossible to move forward in business without experiencing a moderate degree of failure. And letting other people's watching is especially when those watching is our over estimated it's fatal for your business.

We're also dealing, of course, with the practical reality of what we do in the middle of Cove. It With all admissions. How do we make it work? So we are going to come forward with a plan to do the best we can to address that in the here and now I think more work is going to be needed. Obviously, in the years to come, But to the core of what you're saying, I agree with you on the core point. There's just not an acceptable balance in both, especially in high schools and the screen schools and we have to do something different. But when on the screens you've been in office for seven years, I know you need Albany for the specialized high schools. You need them for the screens. And if not, why isn't it done already? We made a number of changes, um, over time. And we've also moved a number of other initiatives. And I think the bottom line is Brian. Everything has been about Greater equality. That's why the whole vision of the school's was called Equity and Excellence Accident. Don't for a moment. Missed the fact that pre K and three K that AP advanced placement courses for all, including the high schools that never had any because of structural racism. So many things were in doing changing the way we distributed resource is to schools to create more equity for schools that had been underfunded. It's all been pointing in the same direction. It's now time to deal with the screens. And again, we're going to come forward with a vision. I don't think it all be settled in one year, But we're gonna come forward a vision of the next things we know we need to do. To address the screens and make them or equitable and Whether it's in my time. Whoever comes after me. We need to finish the mission on the specialized high schools and come up with a different model. And and maybe there's a compromise out there everyone could live with, but this current model is just unacceptable. Also on equity and the schools. We could go back and forth as people have been doing all week on whether it was the right decision. Closed the school is for now, but maybe worse than any opening or closing decision. It's being discussed that around 60,000 kids still do not have the devices or, in some cases, it's Internet access. For remote learning. But again, this has been going on since March. And you're the inequality mayor first focused on reducing educational inequities. So who failed to close this digital divide in this long a time period? And what are you doing about it? I respect the question. I just think this is not been affair discussion. Um remember, unlike pretty much anywhere in this country, we said From the moment we knew we had to close schools in March that we would provide for free highest quality technology that any student didn't have it. And within the course of just weeks we got 300,000 devices. In the hands of our students. And then we said From that point on, we will continue to give a device broke if the service wasn't working. If there was a problem in a homeless shelter, whatever it was that we were going to keep doing this and pay whatever it took to get it done. That's been the standard The problem has been two things, I think One. Sometimes there's just not enough supply of devices. This has been a problem all over the country as the whole country's gone to remote learning. The chancellor spoke to this yesterday were constantly reordering. But we have to wait for the companies to provide the product and then we immediately get to the students. The second thing has been We hear the complaints, but I keep saying just call 311. If you need a new device, so long as we have one in stock we're getting to you immediately as soon as it comes in. If you're having a service problem, we'll switch your service. I mean, it's really Very responsive system. We've had some kids and shelters. Who had a service had a device. But the service wasn't working the shelter. We sent technicians in to put them on a new company, Different service, which does work better. We're doing that literally family by family and shelter were literally reaching out to every family thinking we want to confirm. Your service is working. If it's not, we're going to switch you to a new provider. That's as hands on and focuses. It could possibly be, but we can't always overcome the lack of supply immediately..

It's like it's the whole this entire four years has been basically the MIM of that one liberal screaming at the sky. One that's like super androgynous. Yeah, I don't even know. Is it a woman or a man? I don't know. It's just Is it? The one that's like wearing a rain jacket has yes. Just pack screaming at the sky. Well, this one is a very specific day of rage. Today is the indigenous day of rage today. Columbus Day. Yeah, That's why I did like 11 years ago on Columbus Day is I decorated my daughter's nursery. You did? Yeah, I do. I remember it was Columbus Day. Ay dio. I just remember that and it will forever be ingrained in my brain. So this is not a day of rage for you. It's not a date. I remember it being just a great day. I just remember going and getting all the little things for her bedding and all because, you know, I was really excited. You know, she's a new mom. While there are people that are very, very angry, 20 vacant suck and protesters in Portland. Hold down statues Come on President Lincoln president like Eleanor Roosevelt doing they broke Windows late Sunday because this was part of their demonstration on what? They're organizer's called an indigenous Day of rape people. What did Lincoln do to them? What I like is specifically insane. Animal crazy people. This is the thing but Antifa is just an idea. So don't don't go there people. It's just a construct that's tearing down statues of Lincoln. There, their domestic terrorists that's what they are. There's really no other way to describe them. They're just destructive giant monster. And that's what Joe Biden if Joe Biden gets an officer be like that's not happening, right. It's just a figment of your imagination. This's just insane. Thes air, just people who just want Teo to be violent. Just because just because, yeah, Yeah. These are the kids that just you know, I know, Just they were just mad that we're the ones that were screaming in the in the grocery store when they were younger, And now they just want to scream about now. Yeah, they're just angry, miserable, awful terrible people. Um, so the election obviously is coming up faster than we can even believe it. Really? And now Biden has told reporters that the only way that he can lose in November is through chicane. Ary What? What exactly is she? Cannery? Is that like tomfoolery, shenanigans? Shenanigans console ary tomfoolery? Uh, yeah, I think it all falls in that same the bucket by it of stuff, Okay? Yeah. Should cannery she came. Dory? Yeah, he sent Terry. Here's the deal. You guys, here's the deal. You got to make you go out and vote because the only way we lose this is by the chicane, Aree going on relative to polling places. Or maybe it's just cause more people vote for Trump made that scenery and maybe that's another reason. But then because of course people were like I can't believe he said that Oh my God, he's not going to accept the results of this election. He did end up saying later that his comments were taken a little bit of out of contact. You think and said I am going to accept the outcome of this election period. Unless Hillary tells you not to write in which case he will fight it. Yeah. Which is I mean, it's not like you actually do anything based on what's in your little brain. It's what everybody else tells you what to do. Yeah, Whatever Puppet string gets pulled up to that moment, and it's not like you have an original thought. Right? You old fart. So, speaking of the crazy people who are raging Ah, lot of rage. I think by these people has to do with that infection that's in their brain known as Trump Derangement syndrome, and member Keith Olbermann. I do remember him for gotten about him, and I was better off. Yeah, I think we all are better off. I always wonder like what he does. You know what he did? How he Makes a living what he does how he does the commentary, but I'm not sure on what platform is not unlike the ESPN or anything like that anymore. I think he just has like a YouTube channel. Oh, maybe that is. Maybe that is right. But just other crazy people listen to him. Is that what happens? How does he survive? What is he? Yeah, I mean, I guess he's got a following of people that like his rants. Okay, but I mean, his rants now have gone past just complaining about Trump. And now they're complaining not and not even just complaining about Trump and his supporters but actually saying that we should be removed from society, which is pretty serious. I mean that go. It's classes a lot. It's it crosses a line over to back crap. And don't take it from us. Take it straight from the horse's mouth. Take a listen. Be and must be expunged. The Haiti has triggered the Pandora's box he has opened, they will not be so easily destroyed. So Let us brace ourselves. The task is two fold. The terrorist Trump must be defeated, must be destroyed must be devoured at the ballot box. And then he and his enablers and his supporters and his collaborators and the Mike Lee's and the William Bars and the Sean Hannity's and the Mike Pence's and the Rudy Giuliani's and the Kyle written houses and the Amy Cockney barrettes must be prosecuted and convicted and remove from our society while we try to rebuild it..

My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Use It up where it out make it do were do without my grandmother would say. I thought that was clever saying from her side of the family but it was actually a slogan from World War Two encouraging the public to use fewer resources so more could be diverted to the war effort. We're all getting a taste of that as we're hunker down unable to shop at the spur of the moment and much more limited in our choices when we do thankfully we do have precedent to fall back on after all people are still alive today it through the Great Depression children. The roaring twenties came to an abrupt stop with the Stock Market Crash of Nineteen Twenty nine which saw billions of dollars evaporated into thin air. The crash wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression. There were things like the dust bowl wherein incorrect farming methods turned the fertile American planes into a desert but the crash did act to accelerate the global economic collapse by nineteen thirty three. Nearly half of America's banks failed and thirty percent of the workforce was unemployed. You had to make the most of what you had and you had to get good at that fast to women. Help struggling homemakers to be able to feed their families. Eleanor Roosevelt an aunt. Sammy beginning in nineteen twenty. Six and Sammy had a popular weekday. Radio show called housekeepers chat about cooking and other domestic concerns as well as chitchatting about whatever else was going on at the time and Sammy was very popular especially in rural areas. Thousands of people wrote into her for recipes by nineteen thirty to one hundred and ninety four stations broadcast aunt. Sammy show and she published aunt. Sammy's radio recipes. Parenthetically the Great Depression Cookbook. It would be the first cookbook published in Braille. Interestingly enough though I struggle to think of how difficult it would be to cook on wood or old timey gas stove without good eyesight on Sammy's recipes. Were meant to be simple healthy and easy to cook. She's even credited with helping Broccoli. Find widespread acceptance prior to which it was only found in insular Italian neighborhoods and Sammie helped many wives and mothers through the Great Depression but once that was over then country was back on its feet. People lost interest. The show was cancelled sometime in the nineteen forties. Though sources don't agree when exactly. There's one other fact about aunt Sammy. That's worth mentioning. She didn't exist in the latter half of the twentieth. The Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics created a wife for uncle. Sam The on creatively named Aunt Sammy. The character was voiced by different women at each individual radio station that way the listener would hear an accent similar to their own and feel more connected to aunt Sammy. Three women worked behind the scenes at the USDA to prepare the script each week that all the regional aunt. Sammy's would use fanny Walker. Contested Recipes Josephine. Harmful wrote the chatty portions of the show and Ruth Fan demine coordinated all of the Menus and recipes. The other woman who guided homemakers through was the very real first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt. When Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House in Nineteen thirty three? A record number of people were hungry but being president is not without its perks and the first family eight well even extravagantly while people stood inbred lines. Eleanor Roosevelt. Who didn't know how to cook realized that the way she and the president ate in the White House had the potential to influence and even help the nation through the depression. She hired an acquaintance. Henrietta Nesbitt whose husband was out of work to be the new White House housekeeper housekeeper at that time more like how we use the term homemaker today and not as we use a euphemism for cleaning lady. Nesbitt and Roosevelt retooled the entire kitchen installing modern appliances and coaxing the skeptical White House staff to use them. This was the first kitchen in America and it wasn't even sanitary recalled. Nesbitt in her memoir. Meanwhile Eleanor turn to home economists for menus that would balance nutrition and economy the healthiest recipes in the world wouldn't help people if they couldn't afford the ingredients what's more she resolved to serve these humble dishes in the White House. Her efforts were covered by national newspapers and followed closely by housewives. There was a catch. These nutritious economic meals were awful. The first kitchen was turning out some of the most unpalatable meals in modern memory. The president himself was usually the test subject for these new dishes and he obligingly choked them down. Things like deviled eggs with tomato sauce and prune pudding in place of lavish dishes. The White House table was the stage for things like Spaghetti with boiled carrots. Cold jellied billion and bread and butter sandwiches served so much mutton that being grown sheep which is cheaper than lamb. Because it's much tougher that it became a joke throughout Washington. The first lady experimented with foods like milk corno a mix of dried milk powder and cornmeal developed by Cornell University milk. Porno could be eaten as a gruel like dish or worked into recipes. I was not brave enough to research. What those recipes might be. The bland meals became so notorious that visitors to the White House would eat before they went nutrition. Not Taste was paramount in the time of soup. Kitchens and bread lines and eleanor. Roosevelt was trying to use her table as a way of encouraging and inspiring other Americans to get through this uniquely challenging historical moment. It was just as well they got used to eating a limited range of food because FDR's presidency also included World War Two and the Roosevelt's eight rationed food just like everyone else Roosevelt's White House eight modestly in an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering. Jane's Eagle men. The CO author of a square meal told The New York Times. Here's a sampling of menu items. The first family and the public general might have enjoyed in massive bunny ears spaghetti with carrots and white sauce. The sauce was basically just milk. Meatless loaf made with peace oatmeal peanuts. Rice and or cottage cheese. Whatever you could get your hands on Mulligan's stew any animal. You could kill or find dead with whatever veggies you could manage or anything. That would keep hungry. They for a few hours without killing you like sawdust. It was reportedly created by the massive homeless population during the depression. Where people in homeless or migrant worker camps would pool their resources so that everyone could eat none of my sources mentioned where the name Mulligan might have come from. We do know the name origin of another STU. Hoover Stu Herbert Hoover had been elected just in time for the crash. But Unlike the Roosevelt's he continued to live the good life in the White House. Shantytowns BECAME HOOVER. Villes and the soup from soup. Kitchens became hoover stu the weirdest one of all and this report is opinion was peanut butter in baked. Onions was a whole onion hollowed out stuffed with peanut butter and baked. Just because we have two things on hand doesn't mean we should eat them at the same time as Eagle men succinctly put it. Peanut butter has nothing to say to a baked onion. Some recipes sound like they shouldn't work but surprisingly do like mock Apple Pie. Apples weren't readily available. But Americans weren't willing to give up their conic Apple Pie. The apples in mock apple pie were actually Ritz crackers and it worked. If you're not already familiar with Youtuber Emmy made in Japan. I'll link her hard time series in the show notes and on the website. She all kinds of dishes from times of deprivation including hot water pie grapefruit. Peel steak toast soup. And even the Haitian dirt cookies which you can hear more about in episode number ninety four. My name is mud while we can be grateful that recipes like ketchup soup and peanut butter and mayonnaise. Sandwiches are behind us. Some food created during the depression is still with us. Meatloaf is a comfort food classic and shaping food into loaves go to during the Great Depression. The same goes for casseroles which were a good way to use up odds and ends or to mask less palatable ingredients the depression also gave us the mother of all comfort. Food Kraft Macaroni and cheese or kraft dinner for my friends up. North in Nineteen thirty seven craft heard about a salesman from the tender Roni. Macaroni Company of Saint Louis. A Scottish emigrant aimed grant Leslie going rogue and selling his noodles with packets of greeted kraft cheese attached. They hired him to promote the concept and started selling it for nineteen cents for four servings.

That's the first time we've had those bullets on this show. What is not on your your wikipedia or login? Daniel dropped. Her microphone in a very important question was the literal mic. Drop in writing. Not On your official biography or Kapadia that we should know about you. Well I mean there's a lot but one of the most important things if not the most important things is that I'm a mom. I have two kids one in high school now in one in college and I'm a wife and I'm a proud daughter daughter of two parents who had phenomenal impact on me So family to me is hugely important. What is a typical day? Look like for you now now. It's well now when I'm not on book tour normally. Okay it's so much better comparatively like I can get up at seven you know as opposed to five thirty or six. I can work out and take my time doing it. Not being rushed I can put on my yoga pants I and my fleece and very leisurely eat my breakfast. which is usually like fruit and yogurt or something like that with a lot of coffee and then it depends on what my days as about? When I was writing the book? Sit Down and focus on that. I spend time at the School of International Service at American University. where I meant to our students I do some speaking. I do some travel. I'm on the board of Netflix. And I do some other private sector so depends on what the the the deal of the day is but for the most part the great thing is I'm in charge of my own schedule and I'll have to get dressed up except when I'm on book tour you said You can travel. I'm sure you have traveled so much watch but a lot of it has been in your professional life. Where's the last place? You traveled here for fun abroad or anywhere anywhere. The last foreign trip we took took was to Peru with the family in August which was really fun. 'cause it's been a while given that the kids have jobs in camp in whatever that we've actually been able to do to a cool foreign trip together. Is there a place you haven't gone. That's been on your bucket list. Oh Gosh lots. Let me do a short summer. Yeah I would think you've been everywhere. I've been a lot of places Che's but not everywhere and there's a lot of places I still WANNA go Thailand Morocco Sosa Czech Republic.

Indonesia I've been to many parts arts of Africa most of western Europe a good bit of South America but I still want to go to Chile. I WANNA go back to Argentina. Yeah I WANNA go back to Brazil. We should do do a little girls chalet you should. It's amazing you talk about family being really important to you. And that's obviously a huge inspiration from the book. The the title of the book is a nod to your parents parenting style. Tell us about your parents. Well I had to really wonderful parents both past unfortunately but my dad. I was born in segregated South Carolina around nineteen twenty. His grandfather. My grandfather had been a slave. He fought in the Union army in South Carolina during the civil war and then after the civil war my great grandfather rather miraculously got a primary education occasion became a teacher and then got his divinity degree Went to college and after college he An after his early professional career. He established a school in New Jersey. called the board in town school and from the late eighteen eighty s until nineteen fifty-five that school educated generations of African Americans both in vocational and technical skills and in college preparatory skills and Albert Einstein and Stein and Mary McLeod but Thune. Eleanor Roosevelt. All came to the school which was really quite extraordinary in that. Legacy of service of education was what my father was raised with but born in this oppression of segregation and Jim Crow. He really was struggling to figure out how he could fulfil his potential during World War. Two he served with the Tuskegee airman and in the segregated Army Air Force and he had the horrible experience of not being able elite in restaurants off of base but seeing German. POW is being served and so he knew that he wanted to become somebody. He was brilliant and after after college he decided in after the war lead the south. Go out to California. He got his PhD in economics at the University of California Berkeley and then he spent his professional fashion career. Working his way up he worked in the Treasury Department. He worked at the World Bank in a senior position. Ultimately he was a governor of the Federal Reserve. And I'll come back to him but I learned from my father just extraordinary perseverance and basically believing in yourself even when society and everybody around around you is telling you that you're not worthy or you can't. My mom came from a totally different background. She was the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica. That came came to Portland Maine of all places in nineteen twelve and my grandparents on her side. Had No education was agenda when was a maid and yet like so many immigrants immigrants. They came with the American dream in saved and worked very hard and sent all five of their kids to college. Two of my uncles became doctors. One a university president won an optometrist optometrist and then along came my mother the baby and she was Valedictorian of her high school class. She was debate champion. She she went on to Radcliffe College now. Part of Harvard and was president of the entire student body graduated magna cum laude and because she almost didn't get go to college because she was denied a scholarship because she was black but eventually because her principal enter debate coach went to bat on her behalf. She azazel receive another source of money. She made the fight to enable college to be affordable to low income Americans. Her life's passion and she. He was known as the mother of the Pell Grant Program because she was instrumental in establishing and sustaining this extraordinary program. That's allowed eighty million Americans to go to college.
