Why I Love Rome

"Let's start the hour with three guides from rome. Who tell us what they love. Most about their city rome. It's the eternal city to one of the most romantic and popular destinations in the whole world but many visitors met with a harsh reality when they wander rooms. Ancient streets overcrowded sites chaotic. Urban seems unpredictable transit strikes. If you're not prepared. Rome can be a challenge. But many will agree with me that it's all worth it. Bernardo francesca russo and susanna perugini specialize in guiding american tourists around italy and. They've all made rome their home because they love their city. They join us now on travel. With rick steves to share their love of rome and share with us some tips on how we might enjoy it too you know. Francesca susannah bondar. Generate one so rome. I love history. And there's history every where you look. Francesca you're born and raised in rome. What's it like just to go to work. Surrounded by all that history. Sometimes i think about it that i can wait for the bus right by where julius caesar was stabbed to death. So i'm thinking that rome is a place where history goes from printed words on the page of a book to something. That's alive every minute of every day so you can feel it. Something had happened. Two thousand years ago happened right now. And there's layer after layer after layer. I mean there's like an archaeological dig isn't it but it's right before your very eyes. He has over two thousand years of history. Front is every single moment. Wherever you turn all at once pub is living in rome shape your outlook. I would say that most romans take it for granted. I think they gain a sense of how special the city is when they go elsewhere and they always find everything else so new so you become you become aware of how what it means to live with two thousand years of history once you leave it i think if you grow in it and you see coliseum every day when you drive to work in the sense you don't even see it any more than you might make a case that if you live in a land with very little with the shallow history. You don't appreciate history quite as much. i mean. The oldest building in my town is one hundred years old building a new town twenty times that could maybe if you live with things that are two thousand years old and every day i think you forget it and it just becomes something many conversations with my roman friends who say they've never been inside the coliseum where he could for take it for granted. Yeah but once you open their eyes to one thing then they understand and appreciate as well

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign

"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

Remembering the lives lost to coronavirus

"No country in the world has suffered as many coronavirus deaths as the United States. And as we mark the devastating milestone 500,000 people lost to the disease. There's people behind the numbers.

Airbnb cancels and blocks inauguration week reservations

"Says it will cancel all reservations in the Washington D. C area during the week of President elect Joe Biden's inauguration and reimburse host what they would have made. Airbnb expense. This is an attempt to further prevent prevent further attacks at the Capitol one week after pro Trump supporters stormed the capital building, which resulted in five Yes. Joining us now. Chris Lahane, senior vice president for global policy and communications at Airbnb, So, Chris, you know not only are you canceling reservations. You're doing it at hope, Airbnb his expense and reimbursing them what they would have made if these days had happened, so this is a pretty dramatic move on your part. Who did you consult about this? And how did you come to this decision? Yeah, And I think thanks for having us, you know, a million years. I didn't think we'd be having this type of a conversation. You know, really? We've been consulting with local officials, Mayor's office, federal officials, members of Congress. Obviously, yesterday you had the two governors, governor of Maryland governor of Virginia. Also the mayor of Washington, D. C. All make really clear that they just did not want people traveling to Washington, D. C. We have a decision making framework that we call our stakeholder framework. We just really considered all the issues impacting our stakeholders. And one of those stakeholders are the communities that we're in. It just became really clear to us that the right thing to do here was to the block people traveling from to Washington, given all the guidance, given everything that's going on, given, frankly, the interest of our republic We certainly didn't want to make sure that our hosts who are going to be economically impacted are made whole and that is part of our stakeholder framework. But ultimately, this was pretty simple decision to prioritize. The public health and safety of particularly given the guidance that we were being given yesterday from those various leaders. Since then, the president has been impeached for the second time the first president ever to be impeached twice. You are also canceling reservations on hotel tonight. Haven't heard other hotels saying that they're gonna be canceling reservations. Do you think that they should be doing that? Great question. I'm pretty comfortable speaking about our decision making. Obviously, we'll let others make their decisions. Do believe that all of us? I tried thinking of Thomas Jefferson's first inaugural where, To paraphrase he talked about the fact we're all Democrats, for all Republicans mean that we're all Americans, and I do think we're all of the moment right now, where that really should be Our North star and got his start and that context really prioritizing trusted safety. I do think I'm like, you know something that you and I have talked about historically. This concept of stakeholder capitalism on making decisions that consider all those stakeholders and I do think maybe after some time passes, people will look back on this moment. And after I did some good has really come of it. But It's been interesting to see a number of other businesses on business leaders really standing up and making decisions that are prioritizing interest of the country. I do wonder if this will be one of those moments where People actually saw stakeholder capitalism in action and people actually playing action. Two words. We made the decision based on our application of that stakeholder framework and what we thought was in the best interest of the community. Now how much of the Virginia and Maryland suburbs do your cancelations include? And can you give us any idea how much this will cost Airbnb and whether you're you're potentially gonna make some a similar decisions. Another state capitals. Across the country, given the warnings from the FBI, great great questions. Let me try and take them individually. In terms of the geographic parameters. Horoscope. I'm sure you'll appreciate this. Uh, we are not looking to be able to give this specific. So anyone out there who is Looking to try to evade the systems that we have in place that the block calendars and block travel could take advantage of that. We're certain certainly applying this approach to the Greater D C area that metro area but have been pretty careful about not giving the details. Specifics really in an effort to make sure that people can't evade the The systems that we have in place. It's gonna impact, you know, roughly approximately 5500 reservations and in that area, but we also have signals allow us to be able to change his parameters pretty quickly if we feel like we need need to expand. You know, from a financial perspective, really? That never even came into the conversation. We've been removing violent extremists and you Nazis really dating back. Before Charlottesville in 2017. It's something that we've been doing on an UN going basis, and those conversations just never involved. How much is this gonna cost what the financial impact is going to be even in the case like that? Really was. What's the right thing to do? And I know that may sound trite, but it really was. I remember every conversation with Bryan or strike, Francesca. See, you know what it was? It asked. Let's make sure we're doing everything possible on Dever raised at all. You know what? Let's look at the financial impact was just do the right thing. And then as it regards out their capitals 100% right. Obviously, governments have issued warnings and The other day we announced they seven point plan that sort of helped address how we keep these specific types of folks off the platform. We have flexibility, adaptability toe. Move that around. We're certainly in contact with the different states and the different governments on

"I mean i have a a manuscript that existed of the printed version and in that manuscript of the book. There's no mention of the jewish origin. So i i've no way of knowing what happened between the manuscript and the printing versions of the book which is very frustrating. I mean or doe was near. Spain did hear story what happened. This is a very hard for those of us. Would like to get to some mentality of the people. If you wish even the persistence of the legend at i study. It's still with you. Know i get through the osce copa de i get through as a chapter in which i studied the diffusion of this story throughout europe in various languages in various countries. But you know. I get big idea. The author of the first treaties against a death penalty and torture these. Are you know. Small stratosphere off The thin crust across europe. I mean i did once gave a talk. You're in austin texas. Is that right. So when i was at the very beginning of this project i presented it and My host said. I heard the story in synagogue. One day there could be one day a project to do about distant reverberation. I mean there's a jewish version of the legend that is told in very proud terms and it begins at the very end of the late eighteenth century and throughout the nineteenth century there to jewish versions. One that rejects the legend. Say no this is tainted. We don't want this and one that belongs to the kind of jewish contributions to civilization the says. Yes look what we gave you guys you know. Aren't we great. There's far more to explore for the nineteen century. I barely scratched the surface so a week as we come closer in time and the nineteenth century in their almanacs endure. I don't read it is there may be ways in which may be at spread to central and eastern europe. I don't know i mean this. Financial instruments weren't as widespread there. But i do not have the sources to get into the popular. Echoes and receptions. Just want to say thank you for this really great conversation. I think we started off. Obviously focusing specifically on the history of the bills of exchange. But i think we've ended here in a way. This conversation again ending in quotes. Because i feel like this is just the beginning of this whole set of issues. Were i think that that you really indicated the broad implications of what you're thinking about and this issue it's not just about bills of exchange. It's really about the power of information and of myth. Well thank you jason. For helping navigate to the endlessly fascinating and complicating relation between the past and the present because they do inform each other in the way we look at. The past is always in my view shaped in some ways. Contras an unconscious by what happens in around us and by how we each of us sees what happens around us. So thank you for this opportunity and thank you for all. You're doing with this podcast for all of us and thanks to you for listening in to this episode with francesca trivial auto. Until next time.

"And i'm joined today by. Francesca triple auto for a wide ranging conversation about the history of jews and finance in early modern europe. And it's ramifications for today. We'll approach this issue. Through the lens of recent book the promise imperil of credit. What a forgotton legend about jews and finance tells us about the making of european commercials society. It's a fascinating account of the history of bills of exchange in early modern europe. Which were a mechanism for merchants to exchange goods services and money over long distances and it deals specifically with the long standing myth that jews invented them. And this might seem like a fascinating but niche topic. But it really isn't. It provides a door into a wide ranging conversation about economic history and what it teaches us in the biggest terms about the relationship between the nuts and bolts of the economy and the myths that surround often opaque processes and instruments and ultimately about how these myths have staying power that resonates in terms of the public conception about how the world works from the seventeenth century to the two thousand eight financial crisis. And then of course. There's the question of what all of this means when we throw jews into the equation. The fact that jews were associated with financial instruments like bills of exchange is part of a much longer history about the place of jews in european culture anti semitism and anti judaism and the role of myths in.

"It took a decade for Americans to take Rachel Carson seriously. In her book silent Spring She described the dangerous carcinogenic pesticides to the Environment. End To our health. It's bird the. Us government to create the Environmental Protection Agency and banning DT use in North America and much of the world got underway. Today we're experiencing a new form of silent. Spring with the spread of the novel Corona Virus as well as the accelerating effects of climate change on the planet. Maybe these are all signs that Mother Nature is upset with us up mountain climbing journalists Djamil. Cautions us that we're running out of time to get serious about our impact on the natural world? He'll tell us why in just a bit. Let's start today's travel. With Rick. Steves with fresh look at one of the world's most celebrated cities Rome. Francesca Caruso specializes in uncovering the layers of Roman history for visitors. She's with us to point out. What's behind the sites? We see so. We can view Roma's our city to treasure as well. Francesca Buongiorno. Kayak Francesca every day. You take groups around Rome like an evangelist of art appreciation. I've been following you for twenty years this way and it just your fresh now as you were when I first met you as far as your teaching mission. What is your mission as a teacher of travelers in Rome mission to make Rome accessible because I understand that it can be overwhelming. And what do you do with two thousand years of history? What do you do if two thousand years of art? So it's really giving some ideas on how to navigate it how to make sense of. What does it mean? What does it mean to us today? Wonderful classroom well. It's not a bad office to have. Now what are the big challenges? I mean it's it's hot. It's crowded people don't know their history What are the challenges of this? I mean it's becoming more and more crowded yes. The summer's getting very hot. But I think we have to stand that these things don't explain themselves that it's not true that if you stare at a painting or you look at broken columnists going to tell you what it means so we need a little bit of help. We need a few ideas. How do I look at things with the ancient ruins? Look like when they were intact for example so was a few ideas. We can do that. So when you're doing your work. Are there moments when you feel like yes? I've I've really connected and this person has been opened up to the wonder of what I've loved for years. It's a moment the SA- crossing the threshold at some moment. When you see that look in their eyes that they're right there and sometimes I invite them to remember to think of themselves at home packing their suitcases before coming to Rome and ask him think of where you are now the real thing and the real place think about this and as he that they look around themselves they do these moments. I mean now. Travelers can enter the coliseum through. What do you call it? The gladiator entrance on the stern entrance. And you're on the arena on the floor and you can hear the crowds and you can see the wild animals and BSE. Imagine nation is absolutely ignited finding moments though as a teacher. I mean anybody could just walk through some Gaetan look at the Coliseum on the inside it must be nice for you to able to have an entry that makes sense for the story that you're trying to tell. The story is the part I. I don't think you know after twenty years of talking about these things. I think that it's not so much the stones in themselves as was the stones have to say I mean the idea that the stones carry cultures carry stories that but we can think about and we can understand the past but we can also understand ourselves and having a conversation with those stories for you in other words the art can actually be more than just enjoying something fascinating or beautiful it can have meaning can have important the cost the coliseum. I mean the colosseum is bricks. Stones was the colosseum as a place of violence as a place of politics. It's a place where there is ethical moral issue that comes up with his. It mean that these people went to watch death all day long so it becomes a an occasion to reflect on the use of violence and propaganda. That so interesting because a lot of people go. Oh those Romans I mean arena. That's the word is sand right to soak up the blood. Absolute that's why it's called an arena because Covered with sand. So all the bloodshed on the opening celebration of the Coliseum. How many animals were slaughtered? Has Nine thousand or something like that? I always recommend working with perception to also think okay violence. But what if they'd been ancient Roman sitting in the audience and I saw my first lion never having seen a photograph line on knowing what a line looks like a lion pounces out of the floor for the first time. Two thousand years ago without zoos and circuses documentaries would that meant so we can put ourselves in the shoes of people of the past. It creates a different understanding history and culture. We don't need to be quite so judgmental and we also have to remember. What are the top selling movies for us? You know. They're the shoot? 'em Up the Schwarzenegger movies on this kind of stuff. The the wrestling the car racing everybody waiting for a crash. I mean there's a lot of consistency between twenty first century and two thousand years ago might challenge as a tour guide. And I would imagine you're too is helping people see things in that context. I mean today we go to Roman. It's a modern city sitting on the ruins of a city that used to have a million people. There were a million people in Rome two thousand years ago. How do we envision that? How do we appreciate pass key? But the imagination needs to be informed so if I say that Roma's the first city in the West that reach the population of a million that an antiquity was the most populated city on the planet. And there will never be a million people in a European city again after Roman to London in the eighteen hundreds there you can start thinking that and then you start saying well. What did it mean to provide clean water food housing to over a million people two thousand years ago with did it look like and then you're there all of a sudden you're there and you're thinking like them and you don't bring your baggage of perceptions of moral codes and ethics but you're thinking like a Roman and then that's the transformative aspect of travel that you can be in the shoes of another person of another time might challenge and I just love? This is to not look at it from yeah. I've been there done that. I've seen it on TV. I saw that movie. You know from the twenty. Oh we've got taller buildings or whatever put yourself in the context and then you go. Wow they had a sewer system for a million people. They brought in water for a million people. They cooked bread for a million people there. Rick it happens if you're on the other side of the world and you didn't know book it's one thing if you're in place and you can imagine you can think you can reflect. You can feel are things that can happen if you're that to not happen. Otherwise is doors open as he's Windows. That opens a comprehension. Remember we talked about once fell to The Catholic pilgrim to walk into Saint Peter's for the first time for one hundred years ago. It's that idea of putting ourselves in the eyes in the shoes of travelers on the past

Saint Laurent’s is ditching the traditional Fashion Month Calendar

"Get down system news breaking news this week. I was pretty at. He can aback by the SUNOL announcement. Picking them back in a good way. Ya was although I guess in the last episode we'd been wondering whether big changes were actually going to end up happening so I guess there's your proof that's your answer so for anyone who doesn't know son. A Hall has decided to drop out of Paris fashion week and set its own pace for showing collections direction of the year. And it's going to pivot to adapt to the corona virus crisis and has said they told. Ww W D Saddam will said in a press. Release wd conscious of the current circumstances and it's waves of radical change. Santa has decided to take control of its pace and reshape. Its schedule creates Dr Anthony. Vaccarello said the violent impacted covered nineteen outbreak. Which has forced the closure of most of Santa Stores meant business as usual was not an option chief executive officer Francesca Valentini. Hinted that the brand famed for its spectacular outdoor women's catwalk shows set against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower in Paris could still age a physical show at some point this year. But his favorite formats. They're more intimate and closely aligned. The final customer room. What do you think that means? It's such big news. I think that a house as respected and that does such exceptional job also needed such an exceptional job for its Shows has decided to to step down. Because that's a really really positive meaning that others will feel other smaller. Brands will feel like they can do the same without sounding like their brands in an unhealthy state. Because I feel like a lot of people will be worried about the way to investors and stuff at the same time as So that's also something to take into consideration when you're canceling big show and some of the big names of doing it gives a lot more room for others. I mean the rose also says that that's what they're going to be doing next season and I think this is a really positive outcome. I do that like brands. Moving away from the long lamented fares suck in place flashing. Schedules is a good thing. There is part of me. Worries that with brands. Big Sahel if they're off schedule but still in Paris are still gonNA maybe in completely off the mark with this that people are still gonna fly to Paris from other places to see that. But they're saying they're not showing. Well are they saying they're not showing? Yeah they said they're not doing a show could still stage a physical show at some point this year. Yeah at some point means one show instead of like the fashion week schedule. Which basically these three shows. Because that's two women or four shows to women's and men's which is from going from four to one is a big step. It's a big step back totally and I'm totally in agreement with that but I just worry that everything is going to become cruise collection competition e where big brands compete to have a more extravagant location or timing or whatever and then we're all just going to have to be on airplanes all the time in random directions and if that's what's going to happen? I would just rather we stick to the fashion week schedule because at least you just take one flight and then you go to Paris and you see the shows you know. That's the devil's advocate but bear in. Mind that that's if international flights have resumed. Which for the time being. It isn't the case and bronze will not have healthy budget. They used to fly people around on a whim as much as they used to. And I feel that for example a brand like Santa Hall would make sense to host an event of some kind in the form of a show. Something else every year in Paris. Because that's whether the house is located and you do have to find a way to promote and showcase what the designers creating certainly certainly so there is you have to be able to allow for some kind of formats. I think it's positive to see that it's going to be less than than it was and I really liked the idea of rethinking a system. That was so wrong but yeah I agree with you until we see what the outcome is. Exactly we can't really speculate county yet. No I assume you know what it occurs to me that some of our listeners might not beyond the fashion week circuit. I feel like I'd love you to go into a little bed and you're really up -cluded on the stuff as well. What about the fashion calendar is has been so wrong for so many years but especially in recent years? Can you speak to you kind of just touched on it? I think the competition for each brand to do bigger and better viral. Basically shows has become completely out of hand plus the fact that there are an increasing number of brands increasing number of people wanting to attend shows. Because it's good for positioning or like people just want to be seen their raw than the because they're actually you know helping promote the show itself and I also feel that we talked about this before. It's always fashion week somewhere and whereas they used to be only one week for each city it's now becomes so long and there's men's could chew and crews and then all the minor fashion weeks like Copenhagen and button and all the others that I can't think of the top of my head right now but I know there are loads of them. Do we really need a show format in an era which is increasingly digital. And when actually sitting front row to show would only be important if that show. It really is a proper added value to the brand. I think partly because of how exhausting has become for everybody and by everybody. I'm not talking about myself. I'm talking about people who really work super hot during that time. So the bias. The brands you work super hard juryman time. Yeah at the end of the day. I'm just that to report I'm not Like I feel like there's a lot of pressure during those those busy busy busy times and having so many shows back to back over a period of a month then Rick 'cause two three times in Aghia and where every single time you have to travel to a different city and attend just absolutely absurd amount of events and shows parties all in the name of promoting a brown and it just turns into a ridiculous exercise which is actually quite just quite cringe and especially after everything. We've gone through in last in the last few weeks. I think it would be quite distasteful to return to

Since they were born months early she turned to writing specifically her Dari. Dari became the book. Mothership which reads it is incredible way. Somewhere between a love poem and a thriller all of our temporary life in limbo among a band of mothers who have vivid and failures on Hilarious And not only take care of their own children but ended up taking care of each of a everyone from Elizabeth Day to author of. This is going to hurt Adam. Kay is fine including me. I'm GonNa have been working on a very special podcasting product around the topic that we're going to tell you about In this podcast. But without further ado I would love to meet. Francesca Jessica. Welcome to the vintage podcast. Thanks for coming in and I'm really excited to talk a little bit to you about a really exciting project. We've both been working to deal with the book. Well let's talk a little bit about mothership. The book fast. How many You have a fiction writer for a really long time. How did you get into writing like have you always been a writer or is I have always wanted to be a writer? I didn't know that I would have had the confidence to cool myself. A writer for a long time. But it's the only thing I ever remember wanting to do will be I was writing before I could write. I used to walk out on the street telling myself long and complicated stories and not just really evolved into Cil interim telling myself stories. Still come to believe I get to do this as a job. I am a witness. I'm tell me about your fiction and that's obviously like different studies of different family dynamics and really like thinking about Different human experiences when you came to a mothership which is talking is non-fiction. It's really about units quite personal. What was the difference between getting in somebody else's head and talking about their experiences and having to put yourself and paper a little bit bleed onto paper and Yeah we'll miss literally in the case of this memo and I never imagined that I would about myself? Even the idea of it would have been an anathema to me for a long time and I suppose what changes is. I then suddenly had something Geant and felt very important that I wanted to write about and it was a completely different experience. I'm always quite defensive. When people ask in in the context of fiction you know how much of this is. How much of this is a kind of standard journalistic question how much this is based on your real life and And I gave that sort of very old ground or just because I'm a woman and I might be writing in head of another woman. It doesn't necessarily mean that we all the same women And that was made a little bit easier in my most recent BEC because that was to parenting teenagers Which I was not doing it was to do with divorce which I had not been through. It was to remain which I will say losing a spouse which I had not thankfully am. There is always that sort of having to sort of clarify that you wanNA watching by yourself. I think one to write alone without you cannot write and edit and critique at the same time otherwise you get nowhere But really in particular with mothership I just had to write For Myself With a actually a deep intrigue belief that she this might just be something. I was writing for myself for my daughter's Dire in memoir of of a very very Important and intense time in our family life And afterwards I would look at it and see whether I felt comfortable pushing it into the world and whether I will say it was something of value For anyone else to read and that was Bnei means a foregone conclusion. When I was writing for me it feels as well like. I'm magic with fiction. You kind of convincing other people that these things that really haven't happened happened with this. It's more convincing yourself. Because it sounds such a surreal experience that putting it down you know makes it more real it seriously. Yeah it sounds thing you say that because there were few things Martha I wonder if this really was the way I remembered and then I went back in to I downloaded desktop. What'S UP I read through every what's up message. I tend through that whole period and I had my hospital nights on my daughter's nights and so I- cross-referenced lease things and I thought. Gosh at some of these extreme Things that happen events that took place on the word that I thought. Perhaps I had exaggerated or maybe misremembered actually did happen. The Way and is short space of time as well. That must have been a month. You're like that was a week emotional experiences so we have not. She talks about about this big experience in your life. So tell me your fiction writer You pregnant with twins and your presumably expecting what we see on TV. Which is you go into hospital. You scream a bit. You have some beautiful children you hold them. You go home eventually. Things are great. That's not what happened on. That was yeah. That was pretty much. It was Thirty five pregnant with identical twins My first pregnancy and feeling inordinately smog. Actually I think with hindsight revolting me. Smoke for the people around me. I was a West my peripheral vision that several aspects of that Made me high risk. I was a geriatric pregnancy successful so appalling as anything about languages offensive and Identical twins is in humans. What really meant to carry letters? Identical twins also high risk sharing a placenta in this Issues connected with that but I felt so great I felt really strong and brave and sort of warrior-like in a way that I hadn't even before that point so I really didn't believe anything was going wrong even as it was going on I started pleading very unexpectedly Went and talked with thinking what I'm sure this will resolve. And Okay back to how many weeks of your date by then ten weeks at the time and and they put me on the Today to ward and everyone else is when everyone else on the mood was crying and I thought. Gosh what I mean. I'm not crying because there's nothing we happening me. Not having a baby so so things were going very right until they suddenly went very wrong. Basically and then I suddenly found myself Bat thirty weeks no longer pregnant but standing between a stunning rather uncomfortably immediately after an emergency c section between two incubators and Everything that I thought was about to unfold with competely de Riot At that moment and then and mothership is The diary of the fifty six days that might have to spend in hospital before they were well enough to come home and when you With thinking about putting that down on paper of the beginning of your Chavis Should should I not? I think it's really interesting. There's obviously so many misconceptions that you had before going into experience. Tell us about the misconceptions. You had and then things that you may find me somebody who hasn't really fascinating rate in something that I wouldn't have known about otherwise. Tell us if maybe a few little things about things that people might know. Expect about the experience of having a premature baby. And I think I Misconception I had was that I didn't really have any understanding of how long we would be in hospital Even they'd come very early and I understood that they were very small. They were just a ricky lake. Each I don't think I understood at that point. And maybe that's for the best that we will likely to spend months in hospital rather than weeks or even days. It's not a linear journey that it's things go up and down on a NATO intensive care ward and that's to be expected and the other thing that I never would have expected and that was actually one of the things I really wanted to Write about was that I would make the most precious beloved cherished friends in this extremely improbable unlikely circumstance. The other mothers on the ward. We're really in book is is a love letter to the NHL. It's a love letter to my daughters but it's also a love letter to this group of women who really kept each.

Elections loom in the DRC

"Will improve things I'm joined finally by Francesca Bomboko, executive director of Bessie specialists in political polling in the Democratic Republic of Congo Francesca. Thank you for joining us. First of all, what are the people running for president of Congo hoping to become president of it's a very large often, obviously dysfunctional country. How much of the Congo can any president actually hope to meaningfully govern. I mean, the the they can actually hope to govern the entire country. And I say that these phone my feel experience even though it's a huge country. Like you said, but like the last survey that we did we actually went into twenty six provinces of Congo more than four hundred and sixty nine sites and each time. There was somebody representing the state at that level. Even though most of them were not pay us oppose. But there were there, and we had to present a respect and we had to decline or entity and see what we're doing. So what do you think that the administrative framework of DRC is far more complex and fumble efficient that is normally thought of that at the very least is encouraging. But when we think of the potential next president of Congo in the decision that voters will make before they choose one. Does it strike you that this has been? About the identity and the persona and the personality of the candidates or of the policies. They're actually pursuing. Mean the vote is definitely a kink. India see, we can say that the food is ethnic. But also at the same time, I think that, you know, the general feeling general mood that we perceive in a survey. You know, is that most people are fed up with the current system. They just want to change. So regardless of which provinces that come from regardless of the ethnical background. They just want to change. And this is something that e- we see throughout the ages the sex of the person that we interview. So these are overall, you know, you're yearning for change that is quite strong and powerful India at the moment. Plus the fact that some of the candidates kind of excluded to participate to the elections. Some of the region I would say most of the region fund absolves, nobody coming from the ethnic background. So they have to to vote for somebody at not necessarily for somebody that belongs to the tribe belongs today overall ethnic identity, so as you've seen this election. What does it strike? You have been the actual issues have been the contests of policy which have have got voters interested, regardless of the fact that most everybody wants to change, and what do you think that I've seen it before? And this is something that come across what drastically in all the seven a result. But when we think that which is the most important challenges that the government will have to face after the elections. I mean, the number one issue is the economy definitely for thirty three percent to seven percent of the people that we of the respondent and. Strangely enough. The second issue is Justice and the third is security, and we would have thought, you know, before doing the survey the security will come. I I think it's overall the economy, as you know, poverty is well, you know, more than seventy percent of the relations are on the below the one dollar poverty line. And the economy's the number one issue definitely looking at the election itself. There has been a lot of nervousness certainly abroad. And I I know in Congo itself about whether this election will be free and fair and above all peaceful. How optimistic are you on the front not that much over overwhelming majority of the populations that we survey in October sixty six percent to be exact think that it's not going to be credible. It's not going to be transparent, and it's not going to be fair. So that's a lot of Senate and has been at searched consistently since the past two years. So this. Very high distrust of the electoral commissions, nonetheless, you know, when we ask them. Do you still a us didn't want to vote? Yes. More than any nine percent of the people wants to vote and winning to go out and vote. So this seems to be quite a contradiction over there. But that's understandable in the actual context because they do really feel that election will be the only to bring about change. And when asked them should we postpone the elections to have a more credible process. More transparence over only majority of the population says now, they don't want

"It's true glue. It's like you say, alive your fingers. It's not like it's not like a half-measure glue. It's a true glue, whereas total like, what does that mean? Like it does everything. It doesn't clearly. Could this this make a desperate housewife, happy, no. Could this main? Could this make a child who is extremely overweight and tease at school suddenly suddenly thin or at the very least accepting of his body type. Got, oh, we've got several questions in two stories to do today. So here's my awkward story that awkward story back in March. Maybe maybe early April. I was at a late a belated birthday party and a person whose name I will call Giovanni tells me, hey, I have tickets to go see Blondie on the twenty. Seventh of July. Do you wanna go system me and Andy, do you wanna go? But these do you wanna go on. It was really suffocate. I two extra tickets to blonde. Did you do you want to go? I think you said maybe you guys want to go, I can't remember, but that's important to the story, I think. So let me check my calendar. I might be in Michigan. Two months later, we got a text. Well, can you go? Can you go see Blondie and Adam? And I said, well, that sounds too good to pass up. I'll go, yes, I'm in, but I didn't say we're in, I said, I'm in then. He said, I haven't told someone whose name I will refer to as franchesca yet. So Giovanni did not tell Frencesco I was like, okay, what does that have to do with anything? You're gonna find out. There's a surprise. What is this? I didn't think about it girlfriend? No Francesca is his roommate. He is a homosexual male and Francesca. Francesca is a heterosexual female, but they have lived together for many years. So they could be together like us. They're not domestically party. Solve some issues a few years ago, but that's not here nor there. All right. I didn't think anything of it. I thought, okay, whatever. Then this middle of this week, I'm thinking I haven't heard from Giovanni a, like we're supposed to be seeing the concert on Friday. What's going on. Sure. Enough. The next day I get a text, hey, just wanted to see a touch bases about concert on Friday. Do you want to coordinate getting over there with Francesco or should I lift her over. Was like all coordinate with her. And then I was like, wait a second. I should probably find out if he has tickets for Andy as well. I haven't been telling Andy, he's going to this concert, but there's no ticket for him, which I may have you were telling him and you know, I'm pretty sure, and anti seem to remember that he had asked both of us that Giovanni had ask both of it. I just said, you confirmed for one ticket though when you were talking. I know. So I was like better clarify. So I said, hey, just just curious. Can't remember was it? Do you have ticket for me or ticket for me, Andy. I don't hear anything for hours. Finally, Giovanni gets back to me with two ticks. So I think, okay, that must mean tickets for me. Well, so then I call franchesca to coordinate what should mean that didn't. So I call Francesca to coordinate with our McKay. So let's talk about getting to Blondie on Friday. Like, what are you talking about. Hadn't told French tickets tickets to Blondie. We're going devante got his tickets for Friday..

"Pennzoil, performance line today and I I'm not sure exactly what it's gonna take especially when you think about the, fact that as we said earlier they asked over forty of our reporters insiders NBA minds to do a power ranking on the, upcoming season and the. Lakers, ranked ninth nine through the power. Power rankings so, why why everybody's so mad at LeBron so that's including the eastern and the Western Conference though, and since eight teams make the playoffs in. The Western Conference I am really out on all these MBA analysts trying to tell. Me that the Lakers won't make the playoffs this year now well because? Again, the Lakers have. A guy, who shows up and gets noticed just when you say his name all you gotta say LeBron you who else that happens to Cesco Mona you need both you need Francesca yeah I. Know I, kind? Of forgot that his last. Name was involved in that now but he can just, be a Francesco is one where I think he could be, a one name guy eventually I thought you were going with share I thought you were going to just thought I was just.
