"They play these stories about that hoping to make a connection so in other there was a story that kids going to hear a story. That's kind of about them right. And then the facilitators trained to very simple non probing the question it follows his. What did you think of that story now? A lot of these kids are so locked up from being traumatized that just having that question asked of them suddenly you know Bam opens up the possibility to start talking and that's where some really cool stuff happens. That's that's going to be coming out this year. The second thing that it does that I'm excited about is it's educational for stateside listeners. Because you know unless you kind of dig into that you have no idea. Eighty three million orphans in Africa and many many of them at risk. And and all the stuff going on you have no idea so these dramas actually served the second purpose of telling a stateside audience. Here's what's going on in Africa and so we're working working on getting the next set of episodes ready to go. We're also hoping that we can figure out some really cool innovative way for folks to get the episode at the same time You know so if you listen to an episode here it means that Kid's GonNa get Support in Africa can link those two things have good storytelling but with some great stuff happening on another part of the planet. Yeah that's fantastic. We have referenced both of these programs on on past episodes. The Yeah Holding Esther Andrew Bonar Bridge right and I gotTA say Kathy's performance in holding. Esther was top notch. She should say Cadillac Tempe. Sarah Yeah my goodness I was just for those of you who are in audio theatre backstage. You did hear my initial reaction episode episode about that but Oh my goodness she was just phenomenal. And now those episodes are already out seven or eight episodes that are available to download Do for free. They've been they've been produced. We're trying to there's a transition going where a river crosses separating from its relationship with transworld that was part of the structure early on and so we're sorting out okay. So what is River Cross. Looked like going into twenty twenty. And how do we distribute these episodes and Can when we use the episodes not only for educational purposes but to help out with getting the episodes in Africa. So we're looking at the structure of how things are going to be distributed. Yeah we're excited. It's it's it's just his Kathy. Of course Kathy Sarah With the ministry called Tele who that went into India and worked with orphan kids as well so she has that in her wheelhouse as well so yeah. So what can you tell us about Joe Bridge. I mean we don't really know a whole lot about the project act in is it is incredibly exciting so you you're aware of Daniel Philpott. Putting together phenomenal casts. And in the case of robinhood large casts he went he went above and beyond the absolutely blew us away with the incredibly talented African actors that he collected for us in in London. We went there. There's a rich rich African actor community right in London and are two leads are in fact. Sisters The gals who play Sarah and Esther in the holding esther drama their sisters and that brought an interesting dynamic into the thing and Actually made them easy to direct because there was already some some of that stuff going on But they were exemplary of the this incredible buying when we told them what was going to happen with. This drama is Scott Wide and you know folks were in they they were they were really in And committed to it and so the the dramas recorded in London posted. And then. What's happening right at this moment? Is the facilitators. were up to about one hundred facilitators. That are trained. In in place. In Africa these are folks that work with orphanages grandparents et Cetera so fourth whose sole mission is to look for kids that are in compromised situations or go into orphanages. Take these programs. And they're also linking to stations nations so cities in Africa. Very excited about having this on the local radio level now. Radio is still very very active. I know there's a lot of ways. Listen to drama here in the states right but radio is still very very active in Africa so when we go into a city and air. They're the church is working in with them. The community organizations are working with them. The orphanages are working with them. And they're aware that this program is there and then there's this network of facilitators that are looking for kids. Kids that they can have a conversation with about those stories and they can make a difference. They can change the trajectory of that Kid's life life by starting that conversation breaking them open. I mean Kathy. Sarah talked about this her work in India. Sometimes these kids. She was working with young girls that were trafficked in India and they were so shutdown that the only thing they could do is wave colored scarf and if she could get them to to do just the simplest dance thing it began the process of breaking them back open to humanity so that conversation could move towards. So that's what the drama mm-hmm that's what the drama is all about. And you know as I said Marshall Younger one of our writers Kathy Buchanan. One of our writers Sonic con coming up enjoyed. Bridge will be there. Cindy will be there cindy. Finley Phenomenal phenomenal lady with a great deal of energy for for this project travels to Africa on a regular basis putting more of an in place so We'd love to have people come by on social. I'M GONNA be booked on the west coast that weakened otherwise I would be there for sure at sonic on but river cross will be there and that would be a great opportunity for folks to get more familiar with what the program is all about. Wow that's amazing and I think we might have a little taste for the listener right now right absolutely. Let's spin a clip. So this is early in and The story line for Salem said there's multiple storylines the first one is about the home and how things work in the home Being girls home home for girls that are now safe but weren't previously the second one centers around the character of Salem who heads off to a refugee camp and and then the third one is about salems brother Luca and Luca. Well let's listen on.

"He admitted that he and his wife hadn't bothered to go to the polls. That I love I ended up looking up her because I like him quite a bit. And I looked up sunny, although. I mean, sunny, you probably don't wanna mess with sunny. Mcdonagh. I liked I like him quite a bit. And as I said, he was a mentor to Billy Belgium and stuff. Yes. Good stuff. Yes. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know what Billy Bolger would do about a about a brawl Lewis. Judicial appointee. Personal. Yes. Exactly. Small fellow. Small fellow very clean. Yes. Clean fill. How is Sonny? Mcdonagh. Anyway. So so the basically the next one is oh this other guy councilor Joseph landowning. Do we we do? Yes. We do. He had been convicted in nineteen seventy one for an assault on a federal drug officer. You know, how that goes? They certainly get off in your check. Yeah. Get up in your business. And. Anyway. He revived calls to abolish the council in nineteen ninety when. Hold on a Saint when he said he wanted to berry berry, obviously, sorry judicial nominee, Diane coat Meyer, and assistant attorney general quite sure why he revived calls. Oh, basically because he was so crooked people once again one to get rid of the governor's council because of our friend Langone. Gotcha. Solutia was once car was once heard calling the council a bunch of idiots after a stormy to our debate over moving the weekly meeting seven feet away to the governor's office because the chamber was undergoing renovation. That's this is the I mean that's ribbon for that. Yeah. That you're not gonna just move seven in the constitution. Seven seventeen seventy eight. It starts. It starts with seven feet. And then moving you're out of the building. I'm not going to give an inch not happening here, by the way. Try it up there either. No. Table at the remark infuriated our friend Eddie O'Brien twenty six year veteran of the council who made the motion on may ninth to request a high court ruling on the speakerphone. The next day is daughter shaded O'Brien said she disagreed with her dad earning her a spot on national news programs. The attention shed light on what Devaney called the best kept secret in Massachusetts. Despite the bashing. She said we need it. It's very necessary. When you look at all the other states that elect judges, for example, Ohio in Michigan. They're spending six to twelve million or more to run to be a judge. So in some cases, you get the best judge that money can buy. I don't know. Exactly what she's saying. But anyway. Yeah. But it's not filtered through the veritable ethical filter of the governor's council. Yeah. If you do just like judges outside. Yeah. Right. Which is now good. We definitely need to be properly vetted. And that's why governor comes council from do that because they they won't take money. Bribes. Four times the for maybe maybe five they're certainly not to just approve a parolee or or a pardon. There's so many different. Anyway, she finally says people might not might think it's not the best system, but it works. So at any rate back in a certain Herbert Connolly's day who unfortunately because he didn't vote for himself lost his seat. Apparently, this was a part of several different things. But what I love about it is that Bill Galvin was herb Connolly supporter. And now, we know the rest of the story the secretary of state decided that this was. I don't know what he decided aped up a couple of. Oh, yeah. Couldn't have helped him out helped his old buddy out. I mean that was for me the most recent deal was that for some reason they decided that Jane swift had to had to pay. For her for daring to be to be a whatever. Wednesdays at noon. Yup. That's a deal. Okay. So the other interesting thing that I saw was that they refused to affirm Charles free and reason why this is interesting to some extent now is because Elizabeth Warren one of her like top defenders at Harvard law is Charles freed this this Republican and they put me on the phone with him. This was for the first story. I wrote on the native American scandal. They put Charles freed on the phone and said don't know, she got her job, totally on the merits yada, yada. But this guy Democrats pretty much did everything they could to keep him from getting onto the supreme judicial court. The possibility that supreme judicial court Justice Charles freed, I'm sorry, maybe promoted to chief Justice. They were outraged by that has reignited the army of opponents who last summer almost kept him from getting a seat on the court insisting that freeze views on abortion, civil rights tenants rights and union rights remain untested during his first year in the state's highest court. The state's the staunchest critics vowed yesterday to mobilize again, if Governor William Weld, nominates his friend, if the governor thinks he's gonna y there's gonna if the governor thinks there's not gonna be a fight. He's wrong. He said all the issues people are concerned about haven't come before this court the guy is getting along. All right. But that doesn't tell us anything about what role he will play in shaping the court yada, yada, yada, weld may not want to invite another divisive fight to win confirmation from the governor's council while he is embroiled. In a heated race for US Senator John Kerry seat. So apparently that was at the time. He was running for that the council in August, a proofreads nomination as associate Justice on a five to four vote with of course, tenant governor pulse. Lucia casting the tiebreaker Dorothy Kelly gay, by the way was on. This governor's council for really long time, by the way. Now, it makes more sense Tom Shattuck, can I tell you a little story. So when I was working at the Somerville journal and Dorothy, Kelly gay was the governor. I mean, sorry the mayor in Somerville. I told you the story about her getting all angry about a story. I wrote about gang warfare and lighting and all that stuff you out single me out. So what one of the wonderful things was of course, when Shannon O'Brien was running for governor, basically Dorothy Kelly gay had all but like packed her bags. He was going to be working for Shannon. Brian. And it even becomes more clear to me. Now, why that was that was because Eddie O'Brien mentor d- Dorothy Kelly gay at the governor's council. I bet you. I bet you they became close. She was became, you know, worked at the governor's council for longtime. He was sort of the dean at the time at AO Brian and win. 'cause I remember the night that Shannon O'Brien lost towards Kelly gay was it's almost like she lost the governor's office. She was so mournful and just totally broken. So it all makes sense. Now, North Dakota guy was supposed to be heading up to beacon hill on a fat paycheck. And it all went away. Shannon O'Brien lost against a certain Mitt Romney Dorothy, Kelly gay to also. Oh my God. Yes. Dorothy, Kelly gay also pose freed big surprise voting lockstep with Eddie over there. Said she was favourably impressed by s j JC decision that freed order probate. Judges cares. Stale Kelly Gateshead freed has yet to take a position on judges some controversial issues, I think it might be too early. Of course, she's just going to do whatever they tell her to do Dorsey, Kelly gay. What does she know? Meanwhile, several counselors and other observers urged well to nominate a minority. It's a scandal that Massachusetts that in Massachusetts. We never had anyone of color in the high court in our state. So that is counselor. Eddie O'Brien big surprise that. He hopes weld. We'll consider alternatives to free big surprise there. Mighty noble of them. Yes. Well, that's just it. You know, if they had anyone else. I bet you it would have been just fine. But I would say maybe because it's freed. That's when you need a minority more than ever, right? I mean pretty much this by the way is about how the the governor's council course, didn't have enough women. There's plenty of stories on that this is nine hundred ninety four. This woman Esther Andrews Republican businesswoman from Brookline she served four terms on the governor's council, but that's pretty much. It didn't have anybody else. And finally Dorsey Kelly gay gets to weigh in on this one. There is no question. But that this has been an old boys network up here. Absolutely said Dorothy, Kelly, gay, probably right. Who was? Yeah. She is. Right. Who was who was the fourth woman when she was elected the council two years ago. She said it's been a pretty lonely place for me, which I totally absolutely agree. Donna wasn't leading. No, no you kidney using a speakerphone leading. Yeah. What was the reason why we shouldn't have allowed him in the first place. If you want my opinion. The dean of council is Eddie O'Brien lawyer from east Hampton who's been a member since the nineteen seventies. That's another thing is that once people tend to get into the governor's council. Feel the need to really go anywhere. They sorta coats too long clear my Wednesday. Yep. What we're only going to be. No, it's every week. We got a big hour long meeting. Unless of course, you wanna meet you wanna move the meeting seven feet that's going take two hours at least at least two hours. We're going to be talking about this. You better clearly schedule. We're gonna be talking for a long time. None now two feet. By the way, at one point. I might have told you this before one point Patrick wanted to move the Lieutenant governor's office over to the McCormick link, really. Oh, would've awesome. I wasn't able to write about it. Because it never made the light of day. That's incredible. Isn't that? Awesome. Gonna stick it. I know I love it. I wish I wish it had gotten somewhere. But it would have would have been. I mean, it would have been yelled down. But it was fabulous. That's great. So this is the other problem is that the courthouse with them. No. That's the really tall. Yeah. Not to it's where the it's where the attorney general's offices. All right. Totally different feeling. I know I know. I think. So did you ever used to go to New York super exchange say? Oh, I think it was. Yeah. It turned into a no anyway. So basically, there's only four women at the time. And guess what? The four women have met for lunch since the election. Ill knitting circle. What does that? Get them together. Jesus am I right. I talked over some issues they have in common Jesus. It's got to be too cold in there..
