"Oakland. I'm back Bill O'Reilly here and I will bring you the O'Reilly Update later this morning at 10 11 and 12. New on 8 60 AM the answer. Welcome back America. It's you, you and I was on the Al Sharpton show last night, Politics Nation. We talked about the virus in the speech. I want you to hear this part cut number. Six out you. The Trump Administration's new message on Corona virus is quote live with. How is this winning message? When we could just look in any other country to see it didn't have To be this way. I mean, you haven't now states. That was his base That seemed to be the epic sent off this new rise And they said, Well, we'll just have to live with it. Let's move on. Does this make a side effect? To me? It's a moral outrage. Does this make political sense? I haven't heard that. Alan. Thanks for having me on are always good to be with Zerlina. I haven't heard that lived with that message. I don't believe that's his message. I listen to the Rushmore speech. I think it's one of the best speeches of his presidency up there with the address that he gave in Saudi Arabia and Holland in Normandy. I think I'll play the entire thing on my radio show tomorrow morning because it was such a superb speech announcing the radical view of American history, denouncing the radical left and the left, hates clarity and what the president has been. Yesterday and Friday is very, very clear about the radical narrative being a web of lies. I believe that as well call that speech will be known as the Web Quiet, So I have not heard any kind of relax station of the effort against Corona virus. I believe we will have a stockpile of 50,000 ventilators by the end of July. Organized by this administration, people are coming down with the virus now. Not then, July. So tell me what a strategy right now. I think that you make sure that you move the resource is to wherever the critical need is, I believe in their house that zone. No, they have to keep doing it, for example, lost odd doing that now. Yes, they are. Austin had a huge Siri's of demonstrations in the aftermath of George Floyd's death. They had a skyrocketing infection rate. They reopened in Texas. And it was the death of George Freud had to do it. The sky rocketing amounts of covert virus. What do you talking about? No. The demonstration tell. Of course, I did. A spread of the violence and well, not dead done. Studies that show the opposite is true. You're talking about Arizona. You talk about Texas. You're talking about prison? Florida where There were no demonstrations. You've got demonstrations. Time out. AUSTIN, Texas Specifically which had seven or eight nights, several states, you thie demonstrations had nothing to do, But I'm not gonna let that go. Demonstration is no evidence at all that what we're seeing, while Miami tonight is under curfew has anything to do with demonstrations? I think that the people who are listening right now with an open mind will admit that the demonstrations combined with the re opening led to the spike. It would've been impossible not to have those demonstrations. They were necessary. They were urgently felt, but they led to a spike in many places. Evidence of that. I don't get it right in front of me, but I read it all over the place. Of course it happened. I can show you the Oscar you the writings only note. There has been any number of writing that said that they could not detect where the demonstrations led to that. And when we're talking about a widespread, you're minimizing the light and help of people that need to get care. Politicizing anything like the demonstrators did it rather than the fact is that they had the state's open up too quickly, and they, in fact, because they followed this president who won't even wear a mask opened up people who went back into situations too quickly and that caused despite and you're trying to scapegoated by saying it with some people that protested in Maybe those things that you're talking about this wide rises here. If you don't think those demonstrations had anything to do with the spike, that could be your position. Don't spice has something to do with the experts in those states that had something to do with it. And that is that they re opened too quickly. Even the people in the states the government that did it. I'm not saying that you She wants him. I just wanna point Stop present. I didn't cite Eric Garcetti. I should have, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said. Of course, the demonstrations contributed to it. On. I'll mention Miami. I didn't see it until after the show, the Miami Dade County mayor said. Of course, that on face the nation on Sunday, which I didn't see said of course, the demonstrations contribute to the spike. But I've been thinking about it since that time. Why are they so upset with the obvious? Of course. It's a combination of the reopening and the demonstrations and the demonstrations obviously spread the virus. As did the reopening spread the virus. What matters is the fatality. The other thing that I got wrong is that we're doing worth another country are fatality rate is four points. 9% Right now. United Kingdoms is 15%. Mexico is 12% Ecuador and 7.7% Indonesia is above US. Iran is above US. I think by the end of the week Brazil and Iraq will be above us and we don't know about China because they won't release it are fatality rate is holding steady in her below 5% and falling so we're doing well on the virus in terms of the ultimate income outcome. Because we figured out a lot of the therapies and we surge all over the place. But What was unusual about that is Al usually just give me my bats. He did not want me to talk about those demonstrations in the virus. I guess it interferes with their narrative. But.

Margaret Career O. K. Annex, 10 70 news Radio, Florida's largest county, is again closing restaurant dining rooms, along with gyms and short term rentals like those on Airbnb. It comes after the number of confirmed cases in Miami Dade County went from about 300 a day. More than 2000. Florida Governor Ron De Santis admits that no one can possibly know how many cases are out there. For every case that's documented. There are many more infections that have actually occurred. We only diagnose a small fraction of the total number of infections. Like much of the Florida Miami Dade's restaurants, had reopened with restrictions in mid May. While Jim's re opened about a month ago. The county is now facing a shortage of ICU beds at his hospital's New York governor, Andrew Cuomo. Given residents of Pat on the back is the state's recovers from the pandemics is their phase reopening approach is working numbers prove it's is the local death toll plummets. Best news.

"I will do what you tell me. I just need some sort of clear guidance, and you're absolutely right. That starts with trump. It starts at the top the fact that he won't wear a mask the fact that he won't advise people to do it is I think the single most imaging thing, but we do need some consistency we do bite bite-size actionable guidance to help us guide our own lives, and I don't think that if if some state or municipality. Tries to tell their their citizens that you need to lockdown as hard as we did. In March again that they're going to trust them, and that's the really scary part. I totally agree with that and I. Worry about that I mean in what is hopefully Biden, hopefully Joe Biden wins if he does, he is going to face all of these challenges and primarily the number one challenge is to communicate the American people about what we can do to control this pandemic in a way that is consistent, and also may be focused on harm and risk reduction, right like take these sensible steps, and you're never going to totally eliminate the risk that you might contract this disease, but at least you can reduce harm as opposed to like swinging. Remember I. We were told not to wear masks and we were told to wear masks. We all walk down really hard march like. Are we going to go back into a lockdown now? Like when are we just GonNa? Keep locking down in lockdown until we get a vaccine over and over again like we've got to figure out. Is it safer outdoors? Should we tell people? If you're going to see people do it outdoors? Stay apart as opposed to telling everyone. No one ever see anyone ever. There's gotta be some like you said Tommy. Some actionable steps people can take that are consistent coming from our leaders, and we're not getting that ASA. We are in bad shape, guys. Badge. It's the yeah masks masks, no big indoor events right like it's that much of this but and. So. There was so much like beachgoer shaming early on, and I can't even remember if I participated in it I. Don't think I did because I was like aren't they outside? Isn't this taken from an angle where you have no idea how close they are? Why are we closing angles? Tommy mucking angle, right every fucking up. These are to their umbrellas. Umbrellas naturally creates social distance. Right especially if you're if you're taking a linked wise of three. Three Mile Long Beach. Yes, everybody looks pretty close. But yeah, you have this weird phenomenon where places are reopening bars and restaurants too early and then locking down in Jacobean fashion on parks and trails and beaches, and it does seem like the data were were getting and learning from based on the protests. Show that mask usage outdoors really can help us be better. So why are we closing the beaches? I don't get it. It's so frustrating. Literally to not make it all about trump like Eric Garcetti one day is like it's alfresco dining in la. Everyone's going to be outside now and welcome to our. We're opening outdoor restaurants in the next day. Is tweeting. Cancel all your plan. Stay right ally fourth. Don't leave your house and I'm just like this. It's hard for people to follow the mixed messaging and again like you said time it goes back to an issue of trusting our leaders. You've got to be consistent and if you do change your mind because the facts change, that's okay, but you've got to be clear about why you know it's also you know like. All of these decisions about opening and closing were predicated on this being very short term thing now that it's clearly not going to be a very short through thing. We need to different risk assessment because so that it's sustainable, even if it's a little bit more risky, we need something long term and sustainable, because this is our new normal for a while. It has been, but it will. Totally agreed. That is the original Santa. The messaging was bend the curve. Bend the curve, and let's just not even talk about what comes after and I think like. If you paid attention, you knew this thing was going to be around for a while. The virus wasn't going to go away in the summer. Like everybody trump told us. That there would be mitigation steps, but we need to really focus on the mitigation sips now because I mean the scariest thing is. We're not even talking about hard decisions. We're talking about whether. Restaurants will be opened at fifty percent capacity, not whether parents won't be able to do their jobs because they're. They're providing childcare in teaching their kids all day as well starting in September I mean this is about to get so much harder. Obviously it's not just the absence of trump's harm, but the president of something different imagine a president who in June was saying something along the lines of we have three months to solve this together and get cases down enough so that our kids can go back to school. Let's all do gather for our children. We all want the kids to go back. It's for the teachers for our economy for their futures, so that parents can go back to. To work everything hinges on September. We have a new deadline. Everybody. It's to get this down by September I like there's such a we can criticize trump, but it's not just it's. There's a whole host of things a real administration would be doing. That's completely absent, and the fact that we'll get to it, but like the fact that not only is trump failing to provide that, but Republicans are failing to point out the mistakes failing to point. Point this out is just so harmful. This is not a trump problem. Right there is there's been this strain of like sort of phony bad faith libertarianism in republican politics for a long time I will never get over the time when Greg Abbott, the current governor of Texas, told the people of Texas that he was sending. The Texas National Guard to monitor a military exercise called jade helm that was going on in Texas because somehow he didn't. Didn't trust Obama to not invade their state and take it over right like now Greg Abbott is getting fucking jade helmed by local Republican officials who say they won't Enforce an ordinance to force them to wear masks so like they're all getting bitten by the same disease here..

S. Attorney General blaming anarchists and leftists without you know providing any proof of that but it's really hard to say what makes the situation situation shift tensions are obviously very high so it doesn't take much to spark something now doesn't we saw videos of looting and fires in many cities around the country last night it was also the case another right yeah number of retail stores in that Fairfax area were broken into goods were stolen some were set on fire I know firefighters are dealing with those fires throughout the night that prompted Ellie's mayor Eric Garcetti to announce a city wide curfew which cut a lot of people off guard because he announced an hour before it went into effect but here he is explaining why they did it and alluding to a violent protests in nineteen ninety two for following Rodney king we've seen this before in Los Angeles when the violence escalate no one wins and so everybody has to be responsible for owning this moment what do you wear a badge or whether you hold a sign I'm asking all of Los Angeles to take a deep breath and a step back for a moment it doesn't seem like the curfew worked briefly yeah the crowd started to sent that out even before the curfew started I know in other parts of the state Sacramento San Diego other large can confrontations between crowds and police I think you know what it's going to be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of days that's NPR's Nate rott in LA thank you so much yeah I think you look so we've been hearing how the nation is pulsing with anger with demands for racial

"Oh wow and i grew up with that so this was a businessman here who has business almost failed a couple of times. He had a union shop. All his taylor's were unionized which is not the cheapest way to do it and a grandfather on the other side who is essentially a dreamer who didn't get his citizenship ship for the first thirty years of his life here. Even though he was an american one year old until he fought in world war two and i think those things imprinted on me how important it was to stand up for what what you believe in to fight for the underdog to look at who's not at the table and to make sure that they're what voices aren't being heard so i think all of that was the brew that led you to <hes> apartheid out africa yeah so then you return and then you start teaching at u._s._c. now at that point. Did you think i'll be a professor. I don't think i was gonna do teaching but i was interested in human rights. I thought maybe teaching do on the side but i wanted to do either international development work or human rights work i had been on off living in africa to do my research so i lived in eritrea which had just broken off from ethiopia a few years before and i was looking at the birth of a new country and in that country how ethnishity worked because there's eight major ethnic group and they had all fought against the theo paeans even though some of them are closer to the ethiopians and i'm the case of rwanda right it is a colonial definition calling join them to see in a hutu elevating one of their status that creates the true ethnic is that that's the central lesson is that most people think ethnicity ethnicity is ages old like the crowds have always hated the serbs so we can't stop them from killing each other yeah when in reality they used to intermarry those groups. Were not as discreet as we think they ah yeah same thing. Rwanda and eritrea didn't even exist as a country in history until the italians late to the colonial game said hey. We're supposed to get some colonies. Most most of africa already been gobbled up so they got eritrea somalia and libya all money losers. They didn't understand that colonies for most countries where money gainers yeah yeah and so they spent lavishly but just that short period of a few decades gave air trillions who were totally religiously and racially and ethnically diverse an identity that oh we're something to the point where they fought the longest war in africa against the biggest army in africa ethiopia so like when people think that identity is ages ages old. I think that it's something that can change in a generation yeah. Particularly if resources are limited in one groups getting better access to those resources. It's going to breathe a lot of contempt. That's exactly right so you such an overachiever fucking overachiever. You got all these great colleges your rhode road scholar. You get your masters. Did you get your h._d. There you're working. I was working on but still but i'm eighty you fell in love. These are a lot of time consuming things things. Did you have a great time management strategy. I just got it on that before. We get to city council so the nice thing about about scholarship. Even though i roads folks would be upset with me me for saying this is it's for folks who have really driven hard and some of them will go and do the next step in their academic career most rhode scholars more than any other profession become academics a mix but for me. It was just a moment to breathe. If i got a degree that would be great. I felt like had contributed public some chapters from my dissertation in books but it wasn't my goal. My goal was to kind of just have a moment to stop this run on sentence of life. Yeah have some punctuation yeah. Most people do that as a gap year but you did it as a roads so very lucky to have the scholarship which pays for your time there to meet people to form ideas to think about the future to be an activists to see the world and to kind of form who you are. It's something that i miss a lot these days because i'm back on the run on sentence were i think you have to really carve time out to grow as a person. You can't wait for it to appear now. You have to stake a flag in the ground right yeah. I i mean what i've given as mayor anybody's ever considering public service. I always say it's kind of like acting only do it. If you can't not yellow yeah yeah right well my saying it's different. I would not advise you to take on which is it had better. Be something you'd be happier failing at then succeeded at something you don't like it but i don't think a mayor should fail the politics usually at some point. You're gonna lose to electoral way you know. My dad told me in one thousand nine hundred take two thousand. He goes up for third term right. He made through j got reelected. All that kind of stuff you went for third term and got rejected almost two to one oh boy. I decided to run for city council few months before i wasn't running on his name but i didn't wanna lose on having the same last name. What was i even thinking yeah and i sat down with the friend who i was doing a fellowship with the rockefeller foundation of kind of people of color looking at changing power in america and she said hey my my boss is the city council member. She's just been elected the state legislature you should run. I'm sure she said at the twenty people was the only one rose in one right but i couldn't get the idea d. out of my head and i thought about international relations is los angeles if you walk on the streets of l. a. yes yes eleanor roosevelt. Once said human rights. I'm paraphrasing in distant lands me nothing if they don't mean something in your own backyard and so if i wanted to human rights in interested in these issues of refugees and ethnic the conflict and stuff like l. A. is the place oh absolutely i it was it was kind of a clear path and i knew i wouldn't win. I was kind of like the young punk in the race. I was twenty nine years old. There's some really established names people but to my earlier point i was like oh i'm gonna lose because of my dad right just having the same last name and it was amazing raising when i went door to door for some people said i love your dad but why should i vote for you and others are like i forget hate your dad but tell me about you and so people were very fair about that right and when i got elected my father said you've gotta know who you are going in because it's who you're going to be the day you go out and hopefully it on your own terms as you saw with me.

What a Stud <hes> we liked him? I liked very much yeah. The most you know that me and you you have a different opinion on giving people superlatives like that. That's right. I have the warm fuzzy approach the children's book with a warm Fuzzy Bag. It's an endless bag. There's limitless form fuzzies to be given out. I hadn't been a witch comes to town and convinces everyone that there's xlf finite amount of warm fuzzies in their bag and she convinces them to start hoarding their warm fuzzies in handing out cold Berkeley's which she sells and it turns the community upside down in this book was one of my favorite books as a child the warm the warm fuzzies yeah. It's great reader for the kids a good message. That's a very good message. This episode was brought to you by warm fuzzies. I don't even know if that's actually the title of the Book I just know deals a lot with warm fuzzies so the beginning. He said that he was wearing his daughter's socks. I didn't want people to be confused. He wasn't wearing his daughter's socks his socks head the face of his daughter on them. <hes> <hes> so distinction like a weird thing he does where he borrows Baras his little daughter Saux also we would hate for people to jump to the conclusion that either his daughter had gigantic fees or our mayor had tiny feet feminine step. That's right t feet petite feet and Tamminen step now his feet were normal. They were good size and his socks had the face of his daughter on them. They're very cute little <hes> jealous that I don't have pictures of my daughter's on my socks okay. We could arrange that <hes> yeah. There's different print houses. That could make that happen. I'm sure sure so. It'll send it after you say that you know my fear with inning sox printed with my family members on them is that I'm afraid there'd be using cheap socks that I wouldn't let you know not like bomb was or something share her. Can I send them some bombers and then get imprinted on. I don't know I bet there has to be a very specific fabric able to print rooms on yes okay. I don't know if that's one of my regrets not asking them. If they were comfortable well aft email email the mayor take five minutes out of his day to answer that he talks about naps. The power of NAPS NAPPING is best. I enjoy it very much. You already took one today right Chad. I was not able to actually take one but I applaud it because he tried to take a nap at like nine thirty. That's great that says you really prioritize your naps yeah well. I felt like that was the only time I was going to be able to take one today and I needed to take one and I did not get to take one. How many days a week do you say you get an happen not very often anymore? Yeah maybe like once a month once a month. <hes> I feel like I observe you. Take a nap more than once a month when aw go out by the pool or something you're kind of you're just coming to that's happened a few times. Maybe a few times in the last five years the last week or something Yeah No. I have not taken one in a long time. I'm sorry Matt's fine. I do like them now. Yeah I never take them but when I do it is a euphoric feeling to fall asleep in the middle of the afternoon it I get no you for you at night. When I FALL ASLEEP The Times I've taken a nap in my trailer at work? My whole body body starts buzzing on opiates or something he shared it is highly intoxicated day took one last week after my motorcycle excursion depleted all my power and juices. I needed a nap. There's it's different kinds. You know. There's a certain amounts of time. You're supposed to be napping and you shouldn't do like too much or too. Little I've read twenty. Minutes is the amount for a power nap. That's the ideal yeah and what would be your. You're probably Jane. I want to go forty minutes. I think is when I have napped. That's what I want. I want forty. It's hard once you get past a certain point because then like sometimes then I'll just keeps newsy and then it's two hours to our NAP is probably not a snot advisable. You'll really groggy afterwards and then wide awake when you hit the pillow at night generally yeah someone the downfalls with Napa know napping as a powerful part of staying functional is an alcoholic to a lot. The people have to make that Game Day decision regularly on a Saturday right you go out. Maybe you have a bloody Mary or whatever you have you get a little buzz on around noon and then you're confronted with a big conundrum. Try to keep this buzz going for the next fourteen hours hours or go home and grab like a two hour nap wake up a little confused and then start drinking again share that you find that that's a conundrum drinkers find themselves in Britain often. I guess if they're planning on drinking for that long yeah I was thinking about it all the time on the vacation. I was like okay great wines out at noon. Oh Yeah yes. That's GONNA be an interesting maintenance of it throughout the whole evening. You don't want to get to drunken tired. You WanNa keep that sweet spot of that buzz. I'm just saying you gotta be real precise on the throttle these situations you're right because you're looking at twelve hours of a buzz noon to midnight. Actually if I think of observed for you you kind of shut it off about two hours before before you go to bed down vacation I would shut it off around. Well time was very weird there so I don't know who know hours before bed yeah. It was always three hours later than we thought it was yeah. It was so confusing there. The Sun was just about to set at ten PM. We're like wait a minute. What time is it? Is it seven yeah it was bizarre that in phones were paying off of Illinois Towers. People's fucking clocks were wrong no one no one knew the right time. Who's kind of liberating it was vacation? You couldn't count on what time your phone said like. I don't know does it matter. Does that even matter in really. I know you don't really get that very often in real life okay what year did L. A. become a minority majority. The nineteen ninety U S Census and two thousand thousand U._S. census found that non Hispanic wiser becoming a minority in Los Angeles. I know I feel that way. I drive around L.. A. And I don't see a single white person where are they. They've been run out of town yeah yeah. That's how I feel too. I miss the white people we're going to get them back. We had some kind of policy that incentivizes white still live here definitely okay that Keith Jarrett right concert. Oh you missed <hes> and it was in nineteen seventy five to date. It's still the best selling piano album of all time and it almost never happened. As you said Jarrett I had arranged for a Boston door for two ninety imperial concert grand piano. GotTa have it yes and unfortunately the Opera House staff wheeled out the wrong piano a much smaller Boston door for baby baby grand and to make it worse as a piano used for opera rehearsals and it was in bad condition outta tune so he was not going to do it and then he got convinced to and yeah and then it became the biggest album is kind of become a symbol of how much creativity can flow out of a bad situation less than ideal in that a lot of people to promote creativity tried to disrupt people's work environment the can lead to great productivity. I think the other example they gave him the podcast I listen to is that the two had shut down and there's all these people that road the tube to work in for three weeks they cut in or whatever and that when it reopened they found that thirty percent of the people did not return to the two because they discovered there was no reason for them to even be taking the two that they were walking in about the same or whatever it was but it took something to disrupt their pattern. Make them discover more truthful truth. Yeah it's kind of fascinated for for life I would say but do you think that we should we should experiment and do a an episode of the show where you look straight into the bathroom and I have my chair. Turn Nice Stare at the dog. How can we talk to the person? Listen sure probably rude. Try to see if it leads to incredible episode. I don't think rudeness really leads to good things but maybe if like we were <hes> wearing Nixon masks and they were wearing like the Jason Mask share that could be a disruptor great for audio to yeah well. We'd have to cut out the mouse really wide. We can do some crazy busy. Let's do it lie down for an episode. That would be very fun getting into some napping. We maybe should ask a returning guests because you don't want everyone deserves fair. It's not fair they should have a real shot at the normal interview view but maybe with a returning guest we could ask them to lie supine with us on the floor and talk. Let's do it sounds fun. It might bring that element of like when you're laying in bed with your friend at night when you'd have asleep over kind of conversations you have yes yeah staring at the ceiling steering endlessly at all the different things you're discovering about the scene. There's a crack there that that time do hair plan Masan out to pillow talk. You could do that in the during the interview for sure. Oh I love that point. Do Circle is ideal. <hes> you said Apartheid Africa obviously meant South Africa. I just don't want anyone to say that and act like I didn't catch it. Okay the Exact Act Eleanor Roosevelt quote that he paraphrased is where after all the universal human rights begin and small places close to home so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world yet they are the world of the individual person the neighborhood he lives in the school or college. He attends the factory farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man woman and child seeks equal justice equal opportunity equal dignity without discrimination unless these rights have meaning they have little meaning anywhere without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home. We shall look in vain for progress in the larger world. <hes> it's nice. It's very nice agree with it or now. In total well truth. My mind went to run. You started listing the occupations started thinking about was this argument for the individual or the collective and then I think it's for the collective collective anyways they just started trying to categorize it and one or the other yeah yeah. I think it saying instead of looking at issues faraway start with the things your circle yeah little by little you get you could've much easily your said <hes> you know it all goes back to the Mike Jackson Song <hes> starting with the man in the media shoes in that what she's saying start with the management starting with you. I think she's saying your community okay and also I don't think he probably wants to be referencing Michael Jackson right now as a politician now holly smart move void. I guess the whole topic I would say so but I'm a rebel so I'll sing man in the mirror and then also I have nothing to lose and I really also condone his behavior af also good song. It is a good song. GonNa make a please take a look at yourself and make <hes> <music> change still didn't get there whenever a little closer so we talk about the organizational psychologist who was on Sam Harris Guy. You said that he said power doesn't corrupt it. Exposes your true nature pitcher but he told this really interesting story. I went back and listened. He tells a story about power to sort of display what he is talking about and he said the way people use power depends on their pre existing listing values and there are two lawyers who got into public office. This is interesting one was threatened to be disbarred on the first case he ever tried and the judge said I doubt you have the ethical qualifications to practice law and that was Richard Nixon Dicky Nicky and the second was so ethical that he ended up refusing client because he said I know you're guilty and I can't defend someone who I know is guilty and that was a real Abraham Lincoln Lincoln yes so that was his point that power reveals Nia me too I agree and then also I would say there can be a period of leveling leveling like it can be. I think in my very limited experience of at least getting more power in theory or attention or cultural capital. There's a bizarre period where you simply have zero through experience with dealing with it.

"You may know me as someone who had never lived in Los Angeles too much competition from other people wearing sunglasses all the time. But in my spare time, I talked tech and you're listening to Rico decode from the vox media podcast network today in the red share is Eric Garcetti the mayor of Los Angeles, which I love. I actually love Los Angeles is drive around today and thinking that he was first elected to the post in two thousand thirteen. It was reelected. Last year rented talk about the state of local politics. That tech scene in LA and much more Eric. Welcome to Rico decode mayor, right? Please that. Okay. Eric daughter, that's just the title for a little bit. I'm your daddy. Excellent title. So we're talking about a range of things including national politics, which you've been discussed running for president, and let's start first in Los Angeles. Talk a little bit about your background that people don't know you go through it just a very quick natives of Los Angeles. Actually, fourth generation Angelino my newest family member to come here is my grandfather over one hundred years ago, but I represent the city's absolute sprawling and beautiful diversity and half Mexican half Jewish with an Italian last name. I grew up in the San Fernando Valley which was where the Brady bunch home was in the middle of nowhere in the middle of everywhere and grew up, you know, pretty anonymously. I think people think I grew up in politics because my dad later after I was in college van for district attorney, but he was a prosecutor just align prosecutor growing up. My mom worked in charitable foundations and grew up in a very kind of middle class San Fernando Valley life as valley girl came out and thought, I always wanted to do something to change the world. But I figured. That might be my parents raised me with that ethic. My dad was doing that. My mom was doing that. They gave me a lot of free rein growing up. So I traveled Ethiopian high school to help out with medical relief work. I in college, lived in the jungles of Burma with the democratic resistance that was there. I got a degree in human rights. They encouraged me and my sister to be exchange students. They had met from opposite sides of the track here in LA at PanAm airlines. And so I think they had a very global. Yeah, the great Pan Am airlines fell in love, got married six weeks after the first date now. So the world was very important place for them where they kind of fell in love, and they always wanted us to see the world on the streets of our city and vice versa to see kind of l. a. on the streets of the world. So I always felt comfortable almost being anywhere, though. I always knew I'd come back home and Todd is a professor when I came back to PLO Missy and world affairs international human rights work, then ran for city council. Why somebody suggested it to me, my predecessor on the city council's chief of staff and she'd probably suggested it to a dozen people. I couldn't get out of my head. It was definitely not something I'd ever thought of doing. I didn't know who my city council member was growing up, but I realized why am I going far away places to work on human rights when those issues are right here, and this is the most global city in the world. And and I always give this advice to young people don't run off to DC. Don't go abroad until you set your roots down someplace because the work you do in America today is versus anything will do around the world and you can't kind of grow into that. If you don't start someplace that was the first time you were in politics. Yeah. I mean, I've worked on campaigns. I had helped my dad and one of his reelections I had worked for Kathleen Brown's campaign for governor way back when he took a fifteen point lead and lost. My fifteen points could swing..
