The Mindful Photographer, with Kenna Klosterman
"Able to welcome back to this week in photo. I'm your host frederick than johnson. Today take see because i have kinnock lost min on the hookers. He's a photographer. And you may know her from creative live where she's a host and kind of runs the show over there in terms of what happens on screen so we're going to talk to kim. We're going to dive into who. She is as a photographer. And more importantly i think she is. What i kind of affectionately call people multimedia for. She does a lot of stuff you know and it all kinda has one thread of photography that runs through everything. So welcome to the show how you doing. I'm doing great frederick is an honor to be on your show. Love having you on the podcast host for great live. We are photographers. And i love this concept of multimedia for you that is you the master of mini media. That's so let's talk. let's talk about. let's start there. Let's dive in really wanna talk about just sort of your a lot of the things that you do because you you do my research on you you're are you are obviously be creative live you host a podcast for creative live called. We are photographers. You run workshops when we could do that you know. We read workshops around the world. You are a photographer. Obviously and on and on and on lots of stuff like i said has a common thread of photography reading through it. Let's start with we are. We are photographers. And we'll start there so tell me about the podcast and what was the inception of the podcast and come from. Yeah awesome so for those. That aren't familiar with creative live. We are a educational sites where we stream education and inspiration to Photographers makers all over the world creatives and creative entrepreneurs and so we have a multitude of types of people that watch creative live But i've always had my heart for photography. Because that's what i do and so We wanted to bring additional content and insights to our community global community out there so we started the podcast called. We are photographers. Because i kind of wanted to be inclusive on the we Not just like. Here's a photographer. And this is a photographer But we're all photographers whether that's professional amateur for the love of is And so I believe that there is something to learn from everyone's story and so this podcast is not about gear. is not about reviews of things. Those are all great but it really is about the human story of what can access all as creatives and you know. Everybody has a different story. But there's always themes and threads and we all have our ups and downs and so it's making us all feel alone in the creative struggle. I would say i love that. I love etem. Photo is very much in that in that jetstream. Because it's you know we talk about gear every now and then but in geek out like anyone else. But it's the show is more about these kinds of conversations connecting one on one with other people who just happen to share the love of photography with you and it could be business. It could be your technique or whatever you know. There's so much in this world to talk about in the photography world talk about. Everyone's experience is completely different. I want to kim. I want to dive into creative. Live a little bit I met chase jarvis way back in the day and i've had the opportunity to speak with him in person a couple of times and always always have that rockstar. Kind of you know trying to say something stupid frederick. It's always that and he started. This company called creative live when he started it or when when it got started it was and i don't know if it's still that you can correct me but the whole metaphor was watched for free. But if you wanna watch the replays then there's a small fee that you have to pay in order to get access to the replays. Is it still that model. Because it's been affectionately been kinda dubbed the creative live model in the industry is is still yes it absolutely is and yeah we we started. I've been there from the very beginning essentially as started out as a volunteer back now coming up on eleven years ago which is crazy and So yeah so so so. We are constantly bringing new classes to the platform. We have i think about two thousand classes on the platform now for over ten years time and so yes. There's always something playing for free across the across five different channels photo and video. Art design crafted maker music and then also our money in life channel which has a lot of entrepreneurial courses and everything from yoga to to personal finance and so a lot more than just photography Whether that's for your business hobby or life in general and so people can tune into something. There's always against playing five days a week for free Rotating schedule you can go and see what's playing. Our one of our core. Values is access giving people access to classes that instructors they wouldn't be able to necessarily go and see in person and then yes. It's kind of a for those ones Kind of try before you buy if you have a specific course that you want to be able to have lifetime access to That you want to be able to pause stop remind you can purchase that course and we also have what we call the crater pass and that's our subscription so just like a net flicks these days. You know everybody wants a subscription and so we've created that model where you can Pay one fee and then you have access to nearly all the classes and the catalog a while you have that subscription so again access to two thousand classes in some genres so so We still we still. We've evolved With a subscription but still. There's always something to watch for free and then you can also pay to own courses.

"My name is martin luther before and i'm a vc student at the university from saddam. Main research is focused on natural language processing and information retrieval. And i'm especially interested in how we can learn from humans and human cognition to improve our ai models before that. I did my master's degree in artificial intelligence at my bachelor's degree in mystic so liked to take the knowledge i also have from the back roads and the light microbes research everything. I've done related to natural language processing carries with it a sort of computer science bias towards it. I don't have your background in linguistics. What advantages does that give you in your approaches to natural language processing. It's quite interesting. We've seen the developments. From the early days. I would say wehrley Quite prominence when we wanted to model language greedy looks into specific linguistic structures. And at least things then we went into an era. Our people throw that away basically no linguistics of war Data only we only want to learn patterns from data and always see a bit of shift back again so people try to incorporate knowledge from linguistics into models with the idea that they come maybe learn everything from data per se or if we have named with knowledge that might gives an advantage if we decide like these are models that could work well for this task for example is a pretty exciting thing to see that we go back in the knowledge of marie slogan definitely there have been a couple of people who have taken a pretty provocative ver- extreme point of view on this and is ibm. Has this famous quote. Yes i believe Frederick djelic said every time i fire a linguist the performance of the speech recognizer goes up so i imagine that was a deliberately provocative statement to make in your experience. How have these communities actually overlapped in the community or p. community specifically we want to model language and that's basically what you also want to do linguistics. You want to model language and you want to understand language. You may not want to light produce than which so much linguists rather observe whereas from nlp perspective you might as well to produce but also understand that right. So i think as linguist. You have certain intuitions about language with everyone might have. That seem very obvious to you as linguists that other people might not find so obvious such as negation can be a hard province so for me seems very obvious because this is a trend See gwyn stakes but like from computer science perspective. Never thought about this. You might wonder like why does my mom before well these types of includes or questions or whatever you might not realize that it was about negation or something. That is yet wasn't really that long ago when people still seriously considered that we could solve negation with just a couple of handcrafted rules Exactly like there's more to that right. I think in order to understand what would work well or licensing doesn't work well yet. List acknowledged really comes in handy. Will your paper the caught. My attention is titled what makes a good summary reconsidering the focus of automatic. Summer ization now automatic. Summer is kind of interesting that by hearing it. Even if you've never heard of this fuel before. You kind of intuitively know what it's all about yet. There's still some open questions practically speaking you know. What does it mean to do some reservation. Could you perhaps give us a survey or overview of the various techniques is a great question. Maybe not so clear which is one of the reasons why we started to write this paper. But that said i can give an overview first of what is often perceived as the way to do it in the community. so i'm talking about texts. Summarize -ation right because Of video summer ization for example with for decoration. You often do. thank you. Take any input documents. Texts article for example news article or a bunch of news articles media articles. And you want to kind of get the gist out of this input and right leg few sentence summary about it. That is the majority of work that is done now. How is this done with anything. We've seen a little progress. They're so it started off with a unsupervised Graph based model such as text. Frank relax wrangler. Basically people make a graph of the input documents and then kind of see. What are the most important sentences Extract those now with the rise of neuro models. We see that there is much To sequence approaches. That people used first night with our anez. We see transformers. And bird and bird dyke auto spoken up in a community. And then you also asked about the evaluation. So how often do it is served few forms of evaluation so you have flake the firm and often people use a roche with basically check for lexical. So have your label. Summary like the one you know. It should be any kind of check out. Many words are in common with summary. I produced there. How many acronyms to make it more precise and then there's also some new metrics such as like bird scores in one that doesn't measure lexical similarity with router semantics clarity right because in this lexical similarity approach. If you have a word is kind of the same word as in the summary. That was the label. But it's not the same word out and you don't want that so you run our to measure semantic similarity so that's another type of scoring functions people use and then another way is with human evaluation though you would ask. People questions like which of these summaries is more fluent or which one more informative or which one has the best coverage these questions

Dog Breath Photography!
"Pay welcome back to another episode of this week and photo. I am your host frederick johnson. Today we're talking about dog photography and and this specific conversation and you guys know. I've had people on the show before that that specialize in pet animal photography. But this one's a little different for several reasons. We're going to go into keighley's work style and why she shoots what she shoots house. She shoot what she shoots and this amazing new book that he just released. Which is how we came into contact with each other so kaley. Welcome to the show. How's it go it. Hey thank you so much for having me. I'm so pumped to be here and it's going well a relatively well given the weird wild crazy year. The where the wheels fell off the world's but other than that everything's going good and i'm really grateful to be here. Thanks for having me. You're welcome you're welcome. Thank you so much for agreeing to do the interview during the down week between christmas and new year so would most people are just veg watching movies and putting on pounds. We're working and having fun and talking photography so thank you for taking the time out. I'll feel great. Yeah yeah so. Let's dive into this. So kayla are you. You are a photographer. You specialize in animal photography pet photography dot photography specifically. So let's let's rewind a little bit and go into how you got started in this world this sort of upside down world of shooting furry people instead of models in all that. Cool stuff yeah. It's one of those things where like when you show up at a party. You know who what when parties where thing You know and and you're sorta like talk to other people and you get to know people and you meet them and they sorta like ask you. You know everybody sort of sizing each other upright their electrical. What are you do what you do. And then that's when i enter and say oh i photograph dogs for for a living and often. Kinda say like oh. Oh that's that's cute like do you do do okay with that. You know or or whatever they find it quite interesting. In fact i think they probably think like oh so you're unemployed between exactly right But actually it's been oh man. It's been an incredible wild ride. I've been photographing dogs professionally for a decade now. So i started my business ten years ago. i'm based in the boston area and my business called dog breath photography And and basically. Since the moment that i began ten years ago i started by photographing dogs at the shelter Simply just volunteering. My time and trying to make whatever small difference. I could make in the lives of these dogs who had no voice to speak for themselves You know dogs. That had these amazing stories to tell that had had no way to tell them basically. That's where i figured out. That photograph had the power to to save a life to change your life. And so that's kind of where i started to learn. I did go to college for visual arts. And so i had photography is sort of part of my curriculum and so i i kind of you know knew a little bit about it. But i wasn't by any means professional or real even good which is okay. That kinda came over the years as i developed and progressed. but that's just kind of weird. I'll started you know it's interesting so no no no this. This is great. It's funny. I wanted to interject in there or not funny. It's actually coincidental that we're having this conversation. Because when i started in the in photography combat photo journalist by training for the for the air force and when i was going through my training one of the assignments that they gave us. This is in denver. Colorado was to pick a story. All come in all the photographers that come in to train right. And they gave us these assignments and my simon over three days was a shoot it process printed mounted and presented to the class. This is back when we processed and printed and you know made stuff other than digital so so we did this thing and one of the miami assignment was to photograph animal shelter. And i remember. It's so funny that you say could save a life because this we were talking about the assignment. And i was trying to figure out what i should do for the assignment and i wanted to do something that was kind of what you talked about. You know saving lives and sort of helping helping somebody. It turned out to be dogs but the long story short my story was on. I think i titled it or deny zed euthanasia because it was about the animal shelter and showing you know. I showed the ingest all the way through the end for the dog didn't get or or pets that didn't get adopted and what that looked like and i wrote up a story about the the situation in denver at the time of the how many animals there were versus people that were willing to take them in and what happens to the leftovers right so yeah it was crazy. How incredibly powerful. I had no idea that you had in your background. That is that is so incredible. And so powerful. And i mean what a big beautiful heart you have to have to be able to witness that from from front to back like you said because i will admit that the part that i experienced. Typically the shelters You know kind of the the part where. There's so much hope. There's still so much hope right because the dogs are They're coming in. And it's heartbreaking and sad when you see their previous owners can of walking out the doors and leaving them and that that part is hard.

"So. Let's pause here for a moment to again. Take all this in. Can You imagine the helplessness Frederick Douglass must have felt at that moment. I mean absolutely no way out of any of it. He had fainted hit been beaten as a result of his fainting. He had walked seven miles to his master's house in this bloody condition. Only to be told to go back or else he'd now get whipped again. I mean. I am floored that this was someone's reality. I mean there was absolutely nowhere to turn for shelter from the Damn Storm. So Douglas then made his way back to covey's farm arriving early the next morning, thinking the whole while about the beating that he was going to take from covey once he arrived. and Lo and behold Douglas said that he had barely made it over Covey's fence line before covey was running out of his house with the whip coming straight for him. And Douglas here courageously ran into the Cornfield and he hid from Covey. As of Corn Rows, never answering Covey's demands to show himself until covey finally gave up trying figuring that Douglas would have to emerge at some point. Which of course Douglas eventually did? But something weird happened after that. Covey. Left him alone. And? It wasn't like that in cross paths, either they did. Covey even asked Douglas a day or so later to help drive the pigs on the farm to a nearby lot which Douglas did for him. And all the while Covey still showed no signs of hostility towards Douglas. Till one day. It was a few days after Douglas Return to the farm that he was in the horse stable. And remember up until this point covey had shown no further hostility towards him. Douglas was in the loft on the second floor of the horse stable, throwing bales of hay down below. When, he was done. He was coming down the ladder. When all of a sudden covey burst into the stable with a long rope. He caught Douglas on the ladder and went right to work hurriedly trying to tie Douglas's feet together. Douglas suddenly realized what was happening and tried to jump from the ladder, but his feet were caught, and he fell into the hey below. And at that point, Covey stood over him. And Douglas knew just what was about to happen. And here is where it all turned for Douglas and a half to let him say what happened next with his own words quote. Mr Covey seem to now think that he had me and could do what he pleased. But, at this moment, from whence came the spirit I don't know, but.

"Which you're about to hear was first published about two years ago in May June of two thousand eighteen. And a good portion of you listening have never heard this series because this was a series that wasn't published on the podcast main feed, but published on the shows Patriot page. But, I did think that with all that's now happening in our country and with us. Hearing Frederick Douglass his name thrown around the National News, quite a bit, and with earlier this month, inexplicably a statue of Frederick Douglass in Rochester New York I believe being vandalized and then pulled down. I thought it might be a good idea or at least appropriate to release this into the main feed now so that more people can hear some of the incredible stories from Frederick Douglass Life. And so what you're about to hear comes mostly from Frederick Douglass himself who wrote about all this in his memoir, which was published in eighteen, forty five, so one hundred seventy five years ago, and that autobiography was titled Narrative of the Life Frederick Douglass an American slave. And like I said this was published in eighteen, forty five but I read this book for the first time. Probably Eleven or twelve years ago. And I just remember reading it and being so moved by this book specifically the part where? Douglas reaches his breaking point as a slave, and then fights back against his oppressor, and against the injustice that he feels. And this is a book if you haven't read it. I highly recommend you read. But in the absence of reading that I offer you these stories from his life. And this was a two-part series, so I'm guessing both parts at the same exact time so that there's no delay in you hearing the full story and just hit him back to back. With that preamble behind us I now bring you stories from the life of Frederick Douglass. A. Quote. You have seen how a man was made a slave. You shall see how a slave was made a man. And quote?.

"Men in that circle quite normal, his win noted as being outside Noam and sorry, we could kind of guard from that. It was a pretty safe bet. This quiz we going on I don't Wanna be those historians so like that's just how people were led us back then, but I do think that we do need to be a little more critical and aware of cultural differences and just been. That sounds gay to me, yeah! We've discussed the him, but not for a long time there's a difficulty of if we have a sample of a bunch of really a piece of writing. And some of it was by men who would sleeping together. Way In like queer relationships of some sort and solve. It was just normal for the time because we can't magically, nor what was queer? Then, it's difficult to kind of actually figure out what was normal for the time. And what sort of crosses the line of what friends wouldn't write to each other and like I'm sure that we have some idea of this, but I don't feel that we have enough of an idea to make that kind of cool to just be like. Yeah, that's it. Yeah. I think it becomes like as you said in Frederick's early. Early life when we have for example willingness letter saying I had questions about relationship with him Kaethe or whatever in Frederick's early life, it's easier to save example relationships with Kate Inkatha when not north, but I think in his later life because he now is, he says yeah, exactly he is the king. He set up this court, and like he said this all mile social circle, and there are pamphlets saying hey, that's gay. But sort of within that social circle like well tears, obviously a part of that suckle, it's much harder to say which comes of that circle were in relationships that we're all in this old male social suckle. That's the norm now, so yeah, it's very hard once you in that setting where they're writing these. Letters to each other, which made us have been the norm for that social circle. I think this is just an ongoing problem. We run up against. Where does so much cultural context how people conduct their relationships that like as a podcast that produces an episode every two weeks. We can't possibly gain all the cultural context necessary to say for sure if a letter was the normal not and even people who have been researching for their entire lives. I think fully. Can. Doing the boundaries between one kind of relationship and the next are incredibly valuable, light people, one hundred years, GonNa. uncovered the message Jason, and is that each other and be like? A.

"And Frederick castaway on the seventeen, seventeen eighty-six. What was he born twelve, so live to seventy s okay. Is Pretty Good, Rod. was to be buried at Suzy beside eleven of his dogs. His successor, his nephew Frederick William the second had him buried with previous members of the PRUSSIAN royal family. His body was used during World War. Two because the fees it would be bombed and he was eventually in the ninety s I believe Ranta beside his dogs as he had always wanted. That is good and people leave potatoes on his grave because he's credited with increasing potatoes professional. These photos nights starring that says Frederick the Great. It's got like the flowers and the just like miscellaneous. Hold him cutoff. The potato yes. Tony! Little picture came out recently key potato. King, yeah so if I passed away ninety six during his final illness, he was attended by a doctor. Coal Johann George Zimmerman. Had in mind Frederick throughout his life. He was very moved I. Think moved to tears when he met Frederick effort, because like a big idol of his, and he published a book about Frederick after Frederick's death, and in that bulky nights that everyone including Frederick close friends. Well, the opinion that he had loved as it is pretended, socrates loved also by he's so the as it is pretend that the gives you an idea. Zimmerman was not on board with this idea that Frederick had being gay, or apparently, also not on board with the idea relationship between socrates and also bodies, which is yet another classical queen reference to add to this website. As good into bed beside socrates socrates was. Haven't that's true? But I feel like these a lot of these classical references. Don't go very in depth shaw. Perception Yeah so I. Goes Onto, argue that Frederick what's heterosexual bought that he had contracted gonorrhea from a sex work at during his youth, which had led to an operation, not long opt his marriage, which left his genitals to quite and just a little bit mutilated all right, and left Frederick running, convinced that he had been castrated, and could no longer have sex. Dillon argues that Frederick thus feigned the loss of interest in his wife, and for the rest of his life, pretended to have an act of sex life with men in order to continue to appear like virile masculine man, although he could no longer sleep with women. Competent have sex with women. If. He's still saying that it's faked. Why don't. why Y so I mean I guess the reason for that is that would be an expectation that you would have. Like fried and police, with never had any kids and I guess if he was feigning sleeping with his wife, who will be like? Why isn't pregnant? Whereas if everyone knew he wasn't interested in his like to be clear, I think Zimmerman's. Nonsense but I do understand the logic that he's necessarily right. That's right, said pretend that you had a bunch of like. Liaisons with like low loic loss. Women like that other. That makes the wife Yeah, yeah and like you could just as easily fainting mention his wife and relationships was like female sex workers, and why? Why Fan relationships with men, so yeah, Devon's claims are obviously nonsense. The doctor hit Fredericks- body for burial reported. His genitals appeared totally healthy. End this claimed operation had never occurred, so I must likely claims just come. Come, from hydrophobia, an unwillingness to believe that his idol was gay, but you did mention earlier that Voltaire mentioned something about this well, didn't he? Did? Yeah, that is true I don't know if those two things are connected on multiple people said the doctor read Frederick's body for Baron. Also all the people who are enrolled in washing the money. I think that was three of them will confirm the gentle same. So I don't know if Voltaire also happened to make the same claim or what the situation is there? So I guess Zimmerman was aware of Adam picked up on it as a convenient thing to us yet to justify the perception of Frederick, you want to spread. Like sort of the idea of a man who sleeping with men, having some kind of. Something physically wrong with genitals or like their bodies in general, isn't that yeah uncommon and might have been a convenient cultural association. That's true. Yeah, that's very true. I'm has writing was published before farther death so like that quite I went from Voltaire was around in public before Zimmerman right this, okay, that's interesting so actually somebody I was gonNA. Ask Alia. Was Women, talking about the content of these letters, until the how in that society, we had people getting burned to death valley, but also like fairly open expressions some this correspondence with voltaire was. So. It's not correspondents with Voltaire published. That quite i. read about him storming handkerchiefs to choose his favorite to sleep with. That wasn't a letter that was just baltasmrs, knowing that okay right, he decided to publish this because he was annoyed. Work in what format publishing dislike pamphlets was very normal at the time like he'd just published a pamphlet with your political beliefs or pamphlet with some cartoons or pamphlet poetry, or whatever pamphlets smearing a political. Oh, yeah or Political very common and I think this one came out in an anonymous pamphlet from memory that was later attributed attributed to Volta Yeah. So as we've kind of just talked about during Vick's life, and also in the decades following his his attraction to men, was quite openly known known talked about it was kind of just an accepted fact about him and Ali, biography written off his death by his. Contemporary Anton Frederick Busch. Says he had begun early about distasteful women. Because of this, he lost March, sensual pleasure, but regained it through the company of men, so that's an example of how that conversation was immediately after Frederick, Steph entering his life Muslim. Scholar Bodey action has some interesting things to say about. Saudi and masculinity in the eighteenth century, and why it was possible for Frederick to be kind of recognized as this great general, and this really strong rule of Prussia, and generally advised by his subjects, but at the same time, the nine to be homosexual, and why those things didn't contradict each other, and he argues that Prussian Masculinity, and therefore the image of Frederick Strong Rula is. Is constructed to a much broader range of traits and behaviors than just sexuality and Frederick Fulfil Masculine ideas of military on and doing your duty, and all those kinds of things that were much more important to profit culture than who he might have been sleeping with. He also goes on tonight. That Frederick William refers to Frederick's hobbies. Things like music and French dressing down to whatever. He's intellectual pursuits like literature and Philosophy as being Feminine Frederick William's attitudes should not be taken as the norm for the time, so these intellectual and optimistic very normal for aristocratic men around here at this time, and they weren't necessarily things that would have marched Frederick out as being feminine or as being not able to be strong Rouleau so Ashton's argument, and you kind of I think brought this up before like. Why could Frederick Sleep with men and have this be fine? Even though it was a legal, he's kind of at Wacko Frederick Sleep with men and still be accepted as ruler of the. The country he's argument is basically the sexuality was a relatively small factor in how someone's identity was understood in Prussia at that time, and all the actions, especially military actions were much more important and talked have Frederick a lot of wall as amas quite aggressive in how we approach as well as for example invasion of Salesian and that was actually wasn't that big of a deal I found type of show with Ashton's argument is correct or not, because that would require a lot more research into the culture of pressure and the construction.

"Often quite negative, the he describes it in his writings as a vice which would destroy mankind if it would general assorted outrage against nature, conversely, however, he is much more accepting about when he's writing to Frederick and so. He Compares Frederick to Julius Caesar and this is written about the same time as quite read you and he writes I. Love Season in the arms of their mistress who yields to him I lost, and I'm not perturbed to see him young unattractive on the and above Nicomedes, so if you don't know anything about season comedian, you can listen to our episode. You can't and bought. See is believed to have been the of Nicomedes in his use, so it's not a classical allusion to a male relationship, and what he's saying is like I. Love Frederick, but he's with a woman, or whether he's with a man. Kam Yes. We do see this contradiction. In Malta that he has a lot of gay friends, he's writing. He's absolutely fine with his iron. Lettuce can be quiet like flirtatious or like. We've seen how he writes about Frederick where he compares going to meet Frederick Literally to getting married, but at the same time he has these writings that quiet, anti gay, and he's this falling out with Frederick. He writes about Frederick's sexuality. Would say negatively, but it can be seen as being an attack on Frederick that he starts writing publicly about Frederick. Sexuality I WanNa read one quote from his writings about that way talks about Frederick's court. And he says when His Majesty is dressed in booted, he summons two or three favorites. Whoever's throwing handkerchief? Since Ben's a quarter of an hour in tete-a-tete, things cannot be taken the hallway. Because when he was a print, his love affairs punished so briefly by his father that he suffered irreparable damage, so we can no. No longer play an active role and has to make do with the of now. I just want to not talk about that comment about father. I just wanted to include that, so you knew that it was explicit. We talking about a homosexual relationship there, but the way he talks about it what he's talking about Frederick summoning a whole lot of favorites, and then he throws a handkerchief at one to mark whichever one he's going to go and sleep with I would not say that's a positive portrayal of famous sexuality. and. This sort of rising is a lot of the explicit comments. We have about kind of homosexuality. Frederick's Court. I definitely want to therefore rioted often. Say Frederick quote wasn't homosexual. Slant spread by Voltaire, but I think we do have to keep that in mind, and there may be some exaggeration, yeah. says. I assume fredericks not just gathering attractive young man, and then throw. It was a handkerchief, and then they go into the next room and have sex I. Don't have read biographies and to the credit of historians, not modern biographies, one biography are willing to accept Frederick's sexuality, but all the biographies with definitely used this as a way to dismiss writers sexuality, and say well. Obviously he had this fight with and therefore wanted to spread this slander about him. Time Molson with Algarotti. Many of the men in Frederick's lives, which I've mentioned many of which I haven't I've found that scholars writing about Frederick kind of skirt around the possibility of Frederick and Voltaire, actually being in a relationship, so blending for example kind of lays out. And pull courts on that lashes. But doesn't naturally then interrogate, and what was the relationship between them and in a few scores? I read I found. That was the attitude. Which is really? Because we it, the narrative feels so much like they were writing to each other and slowly building up romantic tension, and then they met they try the relationship, and it didn't work out, and then they broke it off. Yeah, like united that anything to that narrative to make that a narrative about two men who are in love. Yeah, I don't really have a good explanation for this, but my suspicion is that for example when you're Algarotti Okada. These are not famous men except for the fact that they had relationships with Frederick, so it's very to. To Go, yeah, Francesco Algarotti if he was gay well, who's Francesco doesn't affect anything to know if he's gay on whereas if someone says Voltaire was gay, we have all these writings Bible. Tear including sombat sexuality, but also more generally. He's just very big influence on Western philosophy, and suddenly if you start saying Voltaire was gay, then you have to put that Lens. All these other pieces of information and knowledge we have about Voltaire and I suspect that a scholar writing a biography of Frederick. The great is not willing to get involved in that. That's my theory. I don't know if that's the reason on. Yeah, because it does feel weird that they wouldn't either conclusively prove what. Consoles yet. They wouldn't make any ethnic. Affirm or refuse yeah, yeah, or at least say he is the possibility. He is the monuments for and against anything in. Obviously that people told you this is just surprised. Why Out? He was Kinda step back from by a lot of the people I read Sir I was GonNa tell you all my dog stories before wrapped up Frederick's life, we've told most of the dog stories, but I will tell you one more dog story, and then we'll talk a bit about kind of half.

So, he that writing with beach, and they spot a group of Hungarian dragoons, close by Hungarian saw the enemy of this time, so he's dragoons and has to hide under a bridge to be hidden from the dragoons. But as I mentioned be, she's a very loud dog and he's very scared that Bichon. Give them away and he says to be. We must be silent. My lady or we will be did and in this one instance in her life be was silent. Pass by, and they were safe, and Frederick attend to. The cabinet declared that beach was a war hero.

SALITA is like the main obvious addition to project, and like I mentioned it added like sixty percents by population, but he did gain various territories as well doing vein, it was pretty successful, so it's father's death also meant that Frederick could be much more open about his interest in things that might be considered a feminine, and about his relationships with men, biographer, planning, who is? is where a lot of my information came from for this podcast describes the period following, Frederick, William's death as Frederick's coming out one of the things that he did when he first became king was to build himself Osama Palace and the decorations at this palace definitely attest to this being his period coming out so in the hallway there was a boss up. Charles the twelfth. Twelfth of Sweden who had relationships with women that we know of and was generally thought to be gay I. Haven't done any research on Charles Twelve. know if he was interested in men or not. Maybe he was interested in no one for things. He's Frederick thinks he's gay. The general opinion is gay, so it's a symbol of not being interested in women yeah. I lost all of that man. Yeah, definitely true in pride of place outside Frederick's library window in its own little wrought-iron pavilion was a statue of Antennas, the love of the Roman Emperor Hadrian on the grounds of the palace was a building, called the Temple of friendship, which is like one of those little. You're already locking. From friends. Just the neigh-. K. Gazebo. Actively choice to. Think, it was good. Mock me. Please tell me about the temple of friendship. Okay so I I do WanNa side of the Temple of friendship, was extensively as a tribute to his sister will Amana. WHO HAD PASTA WAY PAROLE in the fifties, but there are four pillars with h with a of classical figures on. All of his pants. Classical figures are people who are often considered to be male male couples, so I don't have time to tell you about all these classical figures in terms of what their stories aw, but you'll probably recognize the names on when we have arrestees in Pele, eighties. On we have nieces in your Alice on. We have heracles. And one we have theseus and pure. `Thus Yeah I. Don't have time to tell their stories. We'll have to take my word for is very gay. These are couples that have been recognized as couples for thousands of US and obviously that's like nuance to that conversation, but they definitely have gay connotations. Yeah I if he'd had one of these. Statues will one of these things than maybe we could have a conversation about some nuance, but I don't think we really need to win. It's four sets of statues of bust. And what was the other thing, not the statue? I'm not done on my goal. Dude he just read as much as he could find every day that he could possibly think of that just like be like I need all of. Yeah I singer at French Library Yeah. Apple of friendship. Yeah I also light, so he called it. The Temple of Friendship That's interesting to me. I feel like people get upset about being. Aware of I think that was mostly in keeping with the kind of conversations the time where there's that kind of neoclassical like interest in ancient Rome and ancient Greek Pantheon's and those kinds of things, and it's not too out of line to temple friendship like the French Revolution is not that far away. If you want to think about it that way when people assigned to rebel against life, the divine right of kings and kind of religion organized religion yeah. Yeah like there are a lot of conversations against organized religion this time, so I can as far as I'm aware not really critiqued Frederick of that I. Think the reaction to Frederick Attitudes to religion like obviously that were able to quite upset about Frederick's attitudes to religion, but I think the reaction was generally like oh good. You're willing to let everyone do what they want. Let Catholics and Protestants not kill each other. That's positive. Let's not fight over that. When I say that WanNa do what they want. I should mention that Frederick was very anti Semitic. As, a many many Christian Europeans at this time I think we can go ahead and say most yeah. I think we can go ahead. Say Most one of his big influences in life, and we'll talk about voltaire later on was the French philosopher Walter. Who is also very anti Semitic, so yeah, he's freedom of religion. Ideas and non extend that far too gay art on the same grounds as his some Palacio. Another palace bill called the new palace.

"Surrounded by attendance kind of different, probably female community, Frederick had very little interest in court, and like court etiquette likes up to people organizing parties, and all that kind of stuff that goes along with being an important international speaker, so she'd do a lot of kind of that stuff. Okay whether she was happy with that. I do not know. So in Seventeen Forty Frederick, William died and Frederick ascended to the person throwing. He bought a bunch of wars throughout his reign and I'M NOT GONNA. Talk about pretty much any of them, but I will talk about the first one so one of his past actions as king was to invade Salita, which is a province of the Holy Roman. Empire and he continued to fight wars against the holy Roman Empire and various other European powers throughout his reign, and this invasion of Salesian claiming of Salita by Prussia was kind of the. The impetus for a lot of these wars and ongoing wolf throughout his reign, so before become king in seventeen, forty Frederick had written text called Anti Machiavelli I'll which talks about how you should never fight war, except for defensive reasons among other things, attack on Talaysia was title unprompted, though is no reason to do it except that he wanted that territory, so he's ideas, but he right down, and he writes philosophy and stuff throughout his life on not reflected in his actions as king, so you mentioned earlier when he was younger. Seemed to sort of disparaging not particularly interested in more, the military yeah, was there like a market change in his behavior that wasn't. He does quite enjoy being in the army later in life, and we have letters from him where he's like in a military camp and he's riding to someone saying I'm sick of being in this camp 'cause I. Really just want to have a battle I, really just want to be out in fighting and like he's, he's very into it really, and he's seen as one of Europe's great generals. I don't know exactly when that change took place over. Anything sparked that change, but yeah. Definitely is a change in his attitude. To become more invested in the military before his father Deisel often most of the coin read from this Salesian water. That's just after his father died, but he was in the army for pretty much his whole life as soon as he was old enough to be in the army so. Yes interesting that yet. He had this sort of antipathy towards his military training and he was writing. Things against. War and then his father dies suddenly seems to become much more militaristic and multiple yeah I think that could be an aspect of it of having way from his father's influence, a nasty at that he's doing as keying off his line bat like as his own action. Robinson, he's doing because his father's making him going into the army. His father's he did for example he had a cheetah amend named sow, who was his teacher throughout his life on was still around his father died. He deliberately left him at home when he went to invite. Talaysia and said I. Don't want to be doing this onto the kind of watch of my to. To to this is something I want to be doing as my man. Sorry to some extent, it may have been slave away of stepping out. Follow show, yeah I think the vitamin. SELENA was definitely Portland's by by that. Yeah, but I don't know how much that can be said to actually be enjoying the act of like being in a battle of whatever yeah, which yeah. You just read. He seems to yeah. He was on life. Enjoy that he does. It will change cable. Do Change, and he definitely did change. It's just wild for the winter garden this year. Silk Dressing wearing flouts to then become this great general. Yeah, he's a very feels like a very fantasy story. Transformation. It's not like he's left behind those other things he was interested in like he patronized. Performing ought to law as king. He invited a lot of foreign scholars to court all kinds of things, so he still interested in all those things he was always interested in. He's just now also interested in the military. Does that mean his management is not right not in hematic economics? You were saying earlier that his father didn't want to spend money on anything except for the military. Frederick is doing less military. It sounds like he's doing more of the stuff. That is true well I mean he did gain the province of SALIDA which boosted process population by sixty percent. And contributed about half the tax income from then onwards so well, so there's. Definitely a factor, but yeah, it was at war a lot during his reign, and did struggle because of that like economically, and in terms of dislike population, as I said to the performing arts, and so forth Frederick's reign was really opposite of his father's.

Pious Protestant and had been very against the ideas of the enlightenment, said conversations about you know whether God exists that kind of stuff. While Frederick considered Christianity, quote, an old metaphysical fictions stock with wonders, contradictions and absurdities, and he advocated for freedom of Religion Between Protestants and Catholics, and with the publication of new ideas ideas that he disagreed with, so he was. Happy, not always happy, reasonably happy for pamphlets republished critical of him and those kinds of things he would allow that to go on which was very unusual at the time. Frederik also relaxed many of Prussia's strict laws and punishments, including those against homosexuality, but also more broadly things like he would take poverty into account in cases of theft. He cut back a lot on torture and capital punishment. He's reported by to have said I want everyone in my state. Be Able to pray to God and to make love as they see fit. Well. Frederick also made a point which is kind of in line with the ideas of the enlightenment or trading all his subjects fairly and equally and kind of seeing himself as an equal to his subjects, whose job was to serve them and run their country rather than as a person with power from God. Who is still out of them around? He would raise his hat to anyone very post in the street, which was not at all the norm for King, and was something that he was quite remembered for on quite appreciated by the population, and his successor would complain that Frederick's willingness to listen to legal complaints from peasants had given them quite an unbridled passion for litigation, Hoyer.

The company was even more appalled when they discovered that the rumour members had been feeding Frederick Lens classified information about the project. He required his followers to fax him every month with updates on their lives and some of the confidential information regarding deutchebanks reorganization ended up being disclosed. They'll Goldstein denied that there was a data breach of any sort the project was quickly shut down occurrences like this weren't uncommon and Wednesdays followers gained a bad reputation for being inexperienced and unreliable the gossip snowball eventually leading to the magazine. Article in response to the expose lenses lawyers attempted to get the magazine to rescind their reporting calling it oppression of religious beliefs. The plot failed but as the smoke cleared Frederick Lens still stood tall. It seemed no amount of bad press could topple his empire but he wouldn't remain untouchable forever when we return. We learned that dramatic fate of Frederick Lens and now the conclusion of the story Frederick Lens rose rapidly to prominence in the eighties when he declared that he was a reincarnated zen master. Who could lead others to enlightenment? But the foundation of his cult was shaken to its core. When former members accused thirty-seven-year-old lens of sexual and Financial Abuse Lens was knocked down? But not out over the course of the late eighties. He rebuilt his movement. He continued to run a successful lecture circuit which he used to milk his followers out of thousands of dollars then in nineteen ninety. Five forty five year old lends published his First Book Surfing the Himalayas. A spiritual adventure. This novel was a fictionalized version of his experiences studying under Tibetan Buddhist master the book's publication was controversial. There are still reports that Lens sexually and financially abused his followers. There was such a public backlash. That Warner books. The original publisher dropped him. However the book was then picked up by Saint Martin's press which also agreed to publish a sequel Lens promoted his book with a massive ad campaign reportedly spending over one million dollars to take out full page ads in rolling stone and The New York Times consequently surfing the Himalayas was a bestseller and made lens even more famous. He was now not only a spiritual leader but also a bestselling author. He even dipped his toes into the music industry. When it became a producer for new age band called Suzanne who made thirty one albums in a thirteen year span lens used his money and platform to reform his public image. He gave impressive donations to many charities supporting the ACLU Amnesty International and the National Museum of Women in the arts but even with all this goodwill surfing the Himalayas had dredged up the sexual abuse allegations against him and created a fresh wave of anti-roma sentiment. People became wiser to the cult's activities and grew suspicious about the rash of suicides. The group had left in. Its wake him lenses. Second Book was a financial flop. But that didn't seem to bother him much. In Nineteen Ninety eight at the age of forty eight he began planning the creation of the Lens Foundation for American Buddhism. The charity would offer financial aid to other Buddhist organizations the combined Buddhist teachings with secular American values but by the late nineties. His following had greatly diminished in spite of his aggressive marketing tactics. Some of his followers noticed that he became a shell of his former self around this time he appeared thin and sick when he gave lectures and no longer had the charisma he'd wants displayed. It all came to a head in April of nineteen ninety eight one month earlier. The disheveled forty eight year old guru called his then girlfriend brynn lacey to his long island mansion. The two of them had been planning a trip to the South Pacific and she was thrilled to join him on the vacation. But it turned out that lends wanted to go on an entirely different kind of journey according to Lacey. He told her he wanted them to die by suicide together. So they could go to the off world. They both ingested a lethal amount of volume lens took one hundred fifty pills and jumped into the long island sound lacy however only took fifty and therefore survived. She attempted to dive in after. Lens to stay with him but was unsuccessful in catching up to the strong current in a daze she wandered back to his estate and fell asleep. The police found Brin Lacy unconscious and Lens mentioned the next day along with the two dogs that they had also unsuccessfully attempted overdose when Lacey gave her barely coherent testimony. The police called in divers to search for his body about ten hours later. The divers located Frederick p Lens Zen Master Rama. He drowned while wearing a full suit and a dog collar around his neck lens left behind a substantial estate worth approximately eighteen million dollars. There is a battle for who would receive it as the guru had no heirs relatives or wives to women who claim to be lenses. Common-law wives attempted to gain control over his fortune but both claims were dismissed in court. After the legal battles ended the fight for the money only grew stranger both the Lens Foundation for American Buddhism and the National Audubon Society a nonprofit that protects birds and their habitats claimed to write to the Estate Lens had apparently declared audubon would get his money if the foundation hadn't been fully established by the time of his death. Audubon also argued. That lens was a cult figure and therefore the foundation for American Buddhism was an extension of his unscrupulous practices. The court could not in good conscience award the foundation any money. In the end the Audubon society settled and the bulk of the estate ended up going to lenses foundation. The foundation is still functioning today and uses the money they were given to distribute substantial grants since two thousand three after the estate was settled. It is granted around seven million dollars to one hundred Buddhist organizations across the country. The foundation is just one facet of the legacy of Frederick p Lens though. He seemed an innocent flower. Child turned high. Rent life coach. His actions speak to a darker story. The tale of a man who took advantage of a spiritual movement and warped it to make himself rich though many of lenses controversial and abusive actions are well documented. Some who follow American Buddhism's still see him as a positive figure but if there truly is a KARMIC force. Hopefully the truth of this story will outlive the propaganda..

However, the debate over the fifteenth amendment led to arguments within the equal rights association about whether rights for women or black people should be prioritized. Frederick claim that Elizabeth Stanton was ignoring the importance of black male voters who were still afforded less legal privileges than white women Stanton argued that women's suffrage deserve to be spoken about and both causes should remain United regrettably in eighteen sixty nine the two sides split in the equal rights association. Dissolved also in eighteen sixty nine newly elected president Ulysses s grant appointed Frederick Douglass to head a commission on the annexation of the Dominican Republic to the US president grant wanted to annex the Dominican Republic for two reasons to ensure a European power didn't take it I and to create a safe haven for black people suffering in the United States. Grant appointed Douglas to become an ambassador in the Dominican Republic where he would investigate and create a report in favor of annexation this appoint.

"He started publishing his own weekly abolitionist newsletter the north star. Its motto was quote, right? Is of no sex truth is of no color. God is the father of us all and we are all brethren and quote, the northstar became one of the most influential anti-slavery, newsletters of the era in addition to writing about abolitionists. Frederick also used the newsletter to fight for women's rights. Frederick was a member of the western New York anti-slavery society where he met women's rights activist Elizabeth McClintock, she invited into the first woman's rights convention in July of eighteen forty eight at Seneca, falls New York shortly after the convention Frederick published a statement in the north star that said, quote in respect to political rights, we hold woman to be justly entitled to all we claim for man, we go farther and express our conviction that all political rights, which it is expedient for man to exercise is equally. So for women and quote. Frederick social activism didn't stop with speeches in newspaper articles in the late eighteen forty's he and Anna opened up their home as one of the northernmost stops on the underground railroad.

The Douglas is also took in civil rights freedom fighters and other colleagues of Frederick's while Frederick was off giving talks Anna continue to support the family with work as a servant and shoe binder in her book, my mother as I remember Rosetta Douglass wrote that Anna ceaselessly provided for the family. So that Frederick could go out and fulfill his dreams while Anna was well, regarded among the community for her devoted motherhood and her underground railroad work reputation took a hit after two of Frederick's white European female colleagues moved in with them one of the women. Juliet griffiths. British abolitionist who'd helped Frederick start. The northstar lived with the family for three years, according to Rosetta Douglass. She would read aloud to Frederick when he was tired or depressed and often accompanied him when he travelled out of town.

Rumors began to surface that Frederick was having affairs with both. Julia. And till the Anna bore the weight of these rumors silently for her speaking up whether to affirm or deny the claims meant exposing to the world, the privacy of her home life. She wouldn't encourage the rumors by stirring, the pot in eighteen fifty seven when Frederick was thirty nine.

Louis Douglas went on to become a decorated member of the army in the early years of the war. Frederick was an adamant supporter of ABRAHAM LINCOLN. But in eighteen sixty three after Lincoln issued the emancipation proclamation Frederick met with Lincoln to express his grievances. Frederick was upset. Lincoln didn't use the proclamation to allow x-l-e-a-r the right to vote or use it to condemn the unequal pay and mistreatment of black soldiers Lincoln's oversight. In. This matter is likely the reason that Douglas supported John C, Freemont of the radical democracy party in the eighteen sixty four election Lincoln was reelected, and he apparently took Fredericks advice to heart in August of eighteen sixty four Lincoln asked Douglas to assist in preparations for aiding the newly freed slaves coming.

"And keep Frederick on hand. But by this point in his life, Frederick knew what is destiny was in his auto biography Frederick wrote that he'd much rather live on free land, then continue to work for free land. He wrote, quote, I was fast approaching manhood and year after year had passed, and I was still a slave these thoughts roused me, I must do something and quote. He enlisted four fellow slaves and together, they set about forging freedom documents and planning their escape route. The plan was over before it began on the morning. They were to escape Frederick and his comrades approached the house to find themselves accosted by four white men. Someone had betrayed Frederick, Frederick and his friends were grabbed and tied up. The white men said that they had been in a fight and they needed to be inspected for injuries Frederick had to act fast before the men discovered his forge freedom papers while no one was looking for manage to throw the documents into the fire, destroying the forged documents likely saved Frederick from getting into severe trouble.

Passengers he waited until the train was already moving and hopped on when the ticket agent wasn't looking he nestled in the blacks only train car and waited for the fare collector when the conductor came and asked for his free papers, Frederick lied and said he never took his papers with him out to sea. All he had was a Siemens document, he handed the conductor, the document and prayed the conductor wouldn't notice that he didn't match the description. The conductor did a quick scan collected Fredericks fair money and moved on. On Frederick made it to New York City where he was taken in by an abolitionist named David Ruggles. He was free in a sense while he had successfully escaped.

"Baltimore. Baltimore was Frederick's first experience with an actual city. He was shocked by what he saw though richer families in Baltimore own slaves. The city slaves seem to have a tremendous amount of freedom. This city had a different social order than the more isolated plantations. It was considered improper to be a cruel slave, owner urban slave owners didn't want people to think they were too poor to care for their slaves. And so city slaves were often, well fed and had nice clothes. Frederick arrived. At the home of Hugh Alden. His wife so FIA surprised to be welcomed with open arms in his autobiography Douglass wrote debt aside from the moral crime of owning a slave. So FIU was a kind woman shortly after his arrival in Baltimore so FIA began teaching Frederick to read. The lessons didn't last long when Hugh all realized what his wife was doing. He put a stop to it in. Hugh, all Joan words, it was quote on lawful and unsafe to teach a slave to read, and quote, he wasn't completely correct about that many states at that time had laws in place that forbade owners from teaching their slaves to read a write Maryland did not have any such laws. However, there was still a negative stigma around contributing to slave literacy, Hugh, expressed a commonly held belief that education was key in helping slaves become free citizens, which is why he didn't want Frederick learning to read a slave who could think for himself would be unruly and difficult to manage for his master to hear him say it if a slave learn to read, quote, it would forever unfit him to be a slave. He would become at once unmanageable and of no value to his master and quote Frederick over. Overheard Hugh say that and from that moment on he wanted nothing more than to learn how to read and write Frederick Douglass serve the alds for seven years during that time he secretly continued to teach himself to read and write he was beaten by both Hugh and Sophia whenever he was caught. This happened often. So FIA had adopted Hughes views on the dangers of an educated slave. She would become suspicious if Frederick was out of her sight for too long, he might be in another room with a book. The house wasn't always a safe place to continue his lessons. So Frederick learned other ways to continue his education, for example, he'd steal food from the house before I went on errands, then he'd trade the food with poor white children in new and exchange for words. In his dealing with these white children Frederick was often overcome with frustrations poor not these children would grow up and be free. He would only grow up to continue being a slave. Douglas wrote, quote, I would sometimes say to them I wished I could be as free as they would be when they got to be men you will be free as soon as you are twenty one. But I am a slave for life. Have not I as good a right to be free as you have and quote when he was twelve Frederick obtained a copy of the Columbian orator, the Colombian order was a collection of speeches that was commonly used to teach school children to read and write. It contained an essay dialogue between a master and the slave which explores a fictional conversation. Where slave pleads his case for freedom with his master in the dialogue, the master brings forward every. Common argument in favor of slavery. But the slave rebuts him and asserts that he deserves liberty as much as his master does. Eventually, the slave owner is so swayed by listening to the slaves perspective that he frees him just as his owners feared the more Frederick read the more he became discontent with his position in society. Frederick Stotts became dark. He considered killing himself. It was the only way he could see to escape his life of unjust servitude. It was around this time that Frederick became aware of the abolitionist movement. Abolitionists argued that slavery was morally evil and should be outlawed. The movement was rooted in the northern United States, which largely did not rely on slave labor..

"When Frederick was only seven years old around the same time Frederick was sent back to work on the Wye Plantation, which was run by his suspected father Colonel Anthony, the Y plantation was one of the largest oldest plantations in the United States it covered over twenty thousand acres and enslaved over two hundred people at any one time slaves were not given beds and were forced to share one threadbare blanket per family. If Colonel Anthony was Frederick's father, the older man didn't show it Douglas wrote at length about Colonel Anthony's cruelty, he took pleasure in whipping his slaves, and he would feed children through troughs as if they were animals each morning slaves woke up to the sound of drivers horn. They were expected to work nonstop if they took a break, Mr. severe the farms overseer, abused them with his cow skin whip. Until they bled. Frederick was too young to do real work in the fields. Instead, he was given simpler jobs like hurting cows and keeping the chickens out of the garden like the other slave children Frederick was given no close of his own and generally performed his duties naked Douglas claims that he was never whipped at that young age. However, he suffered during the cold nights often crawling inside an old mill bag to keep warm. One early memory that made an impression on the young Frederick came during the monthly trek to the great house. Once a month slaves would pick up rations with which to feed themselves. They would have to travel from the various plantations on the property to the central farm during one such sojourn Frederick was touched by the singing of his fellow slaves. The sorrow the longing, but more the strength. He felt in those melodies stuck with him for the rest of his life in his autobiography Douglass connected, though, songs to his first glimmering conception of the dehumanisation of slavery. He went on to say, quote, I can never get rid of that conception though songs. Still follow me to deepen my hatred of slavery and quicken my sympathies for my brethren in bonds, and quote when he was eight Frederick was again sent away this time to the service of Colonel. Anthony's son, Hugh Auld in.
