Unlike Fox Media Relations, Todd Starnes Defends His Staff

"These people are saying that I'm lying. They're saying that I misrepresenting the facts here. Can we respond? No. Don't say a word. You just be quiet. We don't we don't talk to those people. We don't defend our employees. Well, I was kind of surprised. Because if you allow these attacks to go unaddressed, then in the minds of many people, that becomes the perception becomes the reality. And I got a problem with that. So anyway, I was on real news, real American used the other day, and doctor Gina, it was a great show. And I wanted to point out what was really going on back in 2016. So look, the Democrats, when they, when the Democrats accuse you of being a racist, well, of course you're not a racist, but in fact, they're the ones who are the racists. So it's really a matter of projecting. And after I left Fox News, I made a commitment to myself. Anybody attacks me or my staff, we fight back. They may punch, but we're gonna pound.

Actor Nick Searcy Joins Dinesh to Talk About His Latest Film

"Guys, I'm happy to welcome back to the podcast award winning actor and producer Nick sir C you know him for his role in best picture winner, the shape of water. He's been in the Oscar nominated Moneyball and castaway and fried green tomatoes and runaway jury. He's also the course played the costarring role on the hit TV series, the FX series called justified, and he teamed up with filmmaker Chris burgard to make a terrific film about January 6th called capital punishment. We're gonna talk about that. Hey Nick, welcome to the podcast. Thanks for coming on. You are just telling me that you have your in a film that daily wire has just released. It's a western tell us about that one. Yeah, it's a western called terror on the Prairie, and I play the title role. I'm the terror. And that's kind of why I still look like Gabby Hayes a little bit. It's a real real throwback western and just a terrific experience, a great people with Gina Carano and Dallas Sonya and the daily wire people. It was great to make a movie with the where for once I wasn't outnumbered being a conservative on the set. And I know you're saying that the kind of old style western that we thought was extinct that Hollywood won't go near anymore. It's been revived in a kind of a new form. Tell us a little bit about how does this compare to the classic westerns with Gregory Peck and Clint Eastwood and so on. Well, it's really more of a throwback to the peckinpah westerns of the 70s. It's a little bit more like wild bunch than it is like the searchers because it's pretty bloody. There's quite a few crimes, let's say, in the movie and it's unflinching. And so I would say it's probably an R rated for violence type of

It wouldn't be a segment about the it wouldn't be a segment of murdered me without making fun of my accent. Now listen, this is cultural. I know. It's appropriation. My son hunter is the film that you and Ann have been making. It is a true story. It doesn't make it. It doesn't make it any less bizarre, crazy, entertaining. But it's true. And it's horrific. And it starring Lawrence Fox. Now, Lauren's Fox of the famous fox family of actors in England, big deal. He ran for the mayor of London, Gina Carano, another famous actress canceled just as Laurence Fox was canceled. So you're hiring these canceled talents. And you're making a film. And again, this was in November of last year, and it just came out that the man who came to interview you misrepresented himself on the set in Serbia turns out we now know this was one of the very well paid lawyers for Hunter Biden. Exactly. Exactly. He completely, I'm just looking at what CBS News reported. CBS also reported that according to Hunter Biden's criminal eternity, Christopher Clarke, Kevin Morris is serving as an attorney and trusted adviser to Hunter Biden. That information was kept from us. When we allowed him to roam our House. And why? Because obviously, if you knew that this guy is working for Hunter Biden, you certainly would have not granted him access to this. Well, by the way, I might have, you know? But I don't know. I'm probably not. Probably not, actually. But what you know he's there to do you and the project harm. There's no question about it. I have nothing to hide, right? But he's going to go in and he's gone in there to try and get me saying something inappropriate or to get someone on the set saying something inappropriate or to have to have somebody using bad language or temperate comments.

John Solomon Updates Us on John Durham's Latest Filing

"John, what are you working on for your TV show? What's the latest at stories you're going to break? Yeah, we're going to talk a little bit about John Durham in the filing over the weekend. And you know who you are, Ted. Thank you for sending me the filing as soon as it dropped. I've got somebody who just boop sends me the documents. I asked, hey, Dave on Gina, have you got it? No, send it to me. So give us a little update on what's happening with Donald Trump. Listen, he basically, for the first time, accused Hillary Clinton's lawyer, Michael sussman, of political deceit of dropping a false allegation on the FBI and then lying about who he was doing in on behalf of and what assessment had argued is please, he asked the judge, please dismiss these charges because lying to the FBI should be protected by the First Amendment. It's one of his arguments. And the second argument, can you stop there a lawyer, a lawyer actually said that lying to a federal agent is part of the constitution? Basically said that this would have a chilling effect on free speech if he was allowed to be prosecuted for lying to the FBI. I'm not making it up. You can read it just the news. It's crazy. So there's that argument. And then the other argument is that what he told the FBI wasn't material. It didn't have an effect, and therefore it can't be prosecuted as a felony. Well, John Durham had a very different filing. And he said, it was material. In fact, Michael sussman had told the truth and said he was bringing this to the FBI on behalf of the Clinton campaign in a tech aligned with the campaign. The FBI might not have even opened this part of the Russian government. Well, again, I don't know who his lawyers are, but they seem to be rather cretinous because it's because of this meeting that the FBI opening investigation. So how can you say it's immaterial to a government? Yeah, yeah, listen, I think that's exactly what John Durham said, which is I don't get this argument at all, but just in case you do here, let me give you our side of it. It was a very powerful filing, and it also reminds you how much history could have been changed, had the Clinton people just told

"And when the commerce secretary was asked how long could we expect inflation? Listen to this non answer answer. In the meantime, with all the supply shortages and issues and the war, we are expecting another very hot read tomorrow on inflation. We get a CPI report, not even factoring in everything that's happened in the last few week or so. How long do you expect this to be with us based on your conversation with industry that are facing so many of these shortages? Does this very hot, very high inflation? You are right. You know, inflation is real and it's, you know, many Americans are obviously seeing that and their daily lives at the pond for the grocery store. President Biden has directed us in his cabinet to go industry by industry and the question was how long can we expect this last?

The hope this goose will be in photographs in my book made now he would which is coming out. All this will be revealed and i actually wrote. I think there's like thirty thousand words. I was just gonna put out a like a goes coffee table book and art book because they have so many photographs from over the years and i was always carrying a camera around with man snapshots of everything that was going on in the early days and there came a point where i was warning. Put this all in one place. You know i had stuff Closets under the bed never ever anywhere. He could trump victor's but had to find the right person to help you get it together. The girls were one hundred percent behind. It finally got it together.

I just i talked to the publisher yesterday. It was like you know. Can you get everybody there. Send the book will you. Well we've seen it. And i just have to say you know as a fan. I love the way that you put it together. You said it could just been a coffee table book with photographs. I loved all the essays everything everything that was written by everybody else. First of all the the foreword by By kathy i is probably the best forward to a book that i have ever read because it gave such great insight and the way it talked about you and your vision from behind from from the throne. I just thought it was a great forward but the whole thing thing. I've been listening to you guys forever. But i learned a lot from you know from my perspective. You know what was going on and the photographs. Tobacco everything up. I don't know. I didn't think i could really write a book but look at those photographs. Made it easy because i remember everything was going on at as you. Look at a photograph remember. Everything was happening at time or you hear a song. It's the same thing that i it triggers the the same kind of chemicals to happening your brain where you know you remember all that stuff. There was one particular pitcher. I guess you're probably in the dressing room. And you have cameras snapping a picture with kathy and you could see your camera. Was that your camera that you had with you at all time. What what was what is your camera and it got stolen force. But yet that wasn't in the drive with that was that shot was in a hotel room that was after a show and we had got back in. I take my makeup already kathy. Taking her makeup off after a show. That's that photograph that you you commented somewhere you were the one or or maybe it was said the sort of the historian you were the one taking. The most pictures is nobody. Nobody had been had a camera. Nobody was doing that. And i just had a love with photography from before being in the band was snapping pictures on the way driving out from baltimore. What you see in the book. I just had a love of takeuchi and still do tell you and ringo starr both radio ringo camera rangel. You're gonna meet a lot of people in a couple of weeks. The go-goes are going to the rock and roll hall of fame. Is that true. Yeah about that. How 'bout that spectacular.

We should be in the rock and roll hall of fame especially dunno. She's getting a lot of pressure from my friends more than than the band. All your friends like what's what's going on.

I'm pretty excited about it now. I know everyone in the band's excited about it now. You have credibility with your friends far away. you're someone like oh god neither. Can i timed up. Do you think it was the documentary. Last year. that came out. That was like you know what the cocos had quite dave.

In pittsburgh the talks are meant to address trade issues around technology including data governance rules and securing supply chains to offset the rise of china and russia. But our reporter. Dan michaels says some issues. Maybe thornier than others. It gets a lot more complicated when you get into specific regulations and how each side overseas these things so for example the eu is much stricter about a personal data than the us. The us has more government surveillance microchips or another area. There's a desire to cooperate because the past year or so has shown how reliant both the. us and europe are on both china but also friendlier places like taiwan and south korea. And there's a desire to develop some independence but what that actually means isn't so clear because us wants the us to be strong. Europe wants europe to be strong so figuring out how they both gain without one losing out to the other. It's it's it's a little dicey

White House Climate Advisor Says Despite Recent Disasters, Don't Lose Hope

"Deadly flooding wildfires heat waves and droughts these have been the headlines all summer in the us with similar disasters around the world to visiting new jersey earlier this week to survey the damage from hurricane ida president biden said we're at an inflection point every part of the country is getting hit by stream weather and We're now living in real what the country is gonna look like and if we don't do so we can't turn it back very much but we can prevent it from getting worse. Abidin administration is pushing bills. Which would be the most sweeping climate change policies ever enacted in the us. But right now. They're still facing major hurdles in congress here to talk about this with us is president biden's national climate advisor gina mccarthy. We'll come back to all things considered thank scott. I know you often talk about the fact that you are optimistic. And even more optimistic than you've been before about enacting the climate policies. But it's been a really frightening summer and a lot of people see these disasters and they wonder. Is it just too late to prevent the worst of climate change. Why is that view wrong. Because a lot of people haven't first of all having these disasters happen and be experienced personally by one out of three people in the united states. Which is what's happened over the past just few months. It's not the way. I really wanted people to get familiar with climate and get active. It certainly would have liked action earlier but this is a tremendous opportunity. We have and. I don't want people to give up hope and i'll tell you why i'm not giving up. Hope number one. I think the president is on target in what he's asking congress to support. I think we'll get it over the finish line but also i want people to understand that we have opportunities with already existing solutions on climate. That will get us where we need to go and get us on. The trajectory to net zero i- job is to deliver the solutions. That's what this package that.

Imagine that celebrating. Oh two hundred episodes with death writer in the house of vampires. While it's amazing. Why do i feel like what was the one hundredth episode. Actually i did like a special bonus episode for episode one hundred where gina interviewed me about like my music career and stuff. So you haven't heard that one yet. Yeah that was fun now. I was going to do something special this time rabbit. I was like you know what death riders coming up. I think it fits. I think that's wonderful. I think that's a bold statement and in a in a in a time of movies right now where everything is either like trying way too hard to be different and or new movies are also just kind of finding out how to be like you know conventional

"Down in england. We'll was you know. So when i ended up doing all the blackbirds colleagues for. Oh my god. That was a massive being sleek vhs of the comedian. So but when i came to. Because that's when i started. You know chris chris again you know we came there too. Yeah he came in towards so we need chris. What was chapelle show came late long. We did get. But i never watched the show. I never watched it. Because it was at that time when i was i. Don't lemon chapelle show. It was like two thousand three two thousand. So i was already in comedy in england. Just hustle hockey. I never really watched a lot. I never really. I've seen. I've never seen all of i've seen clips to the chapelle show on the internet by never. I was not really watching tv. That i watch the. I know i've of senior. I know show no it is about. I watched the documentary. Whether it was on. I never wanted to show here once. You see in eclipse seeing them all. I'm playing no okay so from my observation. You know when i'm watching People talk about english comedy. Of course fawlty towers monty python and whatnot. Why what would it black. Would you say white english. Say english comedy a using these wacky. I get it but what were black people. Holding onto as far as comedy was concerned in the late sixties. Early seventies like what was monty python for not black people. Not not really. I think in the shit about monty python. I never found financing. It was just a bunch of very wealthy middle class white. This monty python sounded too. That's only sounds to me. I just. I never watched killer. I didn't get it you. I think i didn't get much. Benny hill was physical comedy. Exactly i was a kid watching that and it was a kid. I mean as a kid. I was the guy who kenny ever. Who i found hilarious if you have a look up clips of this guy on on uchi. Kenny everett hilarious. He was funny and he was who i was. We had lenny. Henry use our black comedian one top black median in the uk so we watched a lot of his staff alaska so we had stopped. We had we had a lot of tv shows with caribbean actors on it. So we are. Our shows as far as black comets in the sixties. A lot of the black comics in the sixties did very self deprecating humor. That was for why audiences you know. They do similar to our menstrual comedy for america. You guys had their version of that for the uk as well. The black mountains of british. Oh yeah it was on the and then we also had black. Yeah and so let me. He was our one back coming and they're black. Tim sideways for a long time because he did appear in the minstrel show. He was a young black comic. There was nothing out that he was the one and he just did what he was told to do. But yeah did the veteran show blackie. Were for a long time. So what year did the minstrel show. Stop in the uk. Not for long time did it went on for. I didn't i think it's i think it didn't stop to like the early night. It went on for a long time. I might exaggerating. But i know it was on for a very long time. Stop way after. It should've stopped. Damn ways has to sell by date. Well well wait. so how. how does one cut their teeth and navigate through the early structure of trying to be a comedian like well. What clubs and like. How are you able to do that. And also you know where they open to you being a a woman a black person. How hard was it to sort of rub shoulders. And what else. I didn't call me in the ninety s that had been there was a burgeoning blackhawks. There was a he was very segregated so we had a black thing which was made up of theaters. black run theaters. There were lots of good underground boop states around the country and there was a promoter. Johnson it who used the porn shows. And he's the bring over american comics to do our shows like i've met. Jbc move twenty five years ago at in atwood's all of these guys twenty years ago. When i was starting out in england i went to see them at theaters in england in the nineteenth before they became huge. So this guy. Johnson it was put on shows. There was a really good comedy thing. Nine comedy clubs status event. The black thing was an event. They put in place on the flyer. People came just a big event. So that's where i started in. Condemning blacks in the white community was mainly comedy clubs and they were love them all at the country. So you could make. The blacks ing paid no money because he was more advanced but there weren't as many of them. So you might get one might get one show every couple of weeks. Paying three hundred bucks was on the white side that paid less money. But you call a lot of work if you go into the clubs. I've always made a point of plane. Both sets playing the black and white seeing immediately from the beginning i was like i won't be to everybody and i wanna make order money because i'm nigerian. So that's how. I wouldn't mind so i want to do all the clubs so i made the point of playing both the white sackett your sell out whatever by never sold myself. I always was pretty much. Quintessentially me when i did the shows so yeah and that's why did it was hard. It was a struggle. It was a struggle getting those clubs because they didn't spent black community they always thought to. This is the mark of the assumption that every black comic is a deaf jan comic every black comic to certain way. That's how it was in england. They the tobacco is apparent in whatever so it was a struggle clouds. I worked here and i did. I tested and clubs. And i i did get on but you know it was hard getting on tv. I was always token. We're always on tv on all of tv shows. You know. I was famous for being that black girl on every show in england now so when he shows accused of racism they rex. Gina gina on our so eight times. So i realized i was being used as a token to keep other black people down so i gotta get going to get. I was told that i was trying to figure out. In american comedy when blacks are trying to get that mainstream level Like you know how do you get out of what we call the chitlins circuit and to mainstream comedy. Some black comedians joke with me. The one thing you can't do when you decide to go mainstream. Is i guess. The common denominator is amongst. Comedians is Your defcon your def jam comic. If you're fucking the chair. So.

"Kids over its white supremacy. Thank god why personally they indoctrinated the entire planet and then genius what they did when you're thinking about it knocking. I'm also dying. Because i do another podcast with just got in. Asia kindred in asia always says the root of everything that has to go on with black people white supremacy so as to like word salute ingenious. The the fact that they subjugated us that they convinced. Get stuff that we were less than and generations later hundreds of years later. We still believe that we are less than we still do. Hence you have you know african americans. Hey africans applications this the trial. Everything stems from that. The religion was forced upon after half believing in a white jesus of the white the villainous upon the homophobia that was never existent in african society. We will spiritual we were. Wait massed practice uraba. Sorry are you. D- practice uraba the religion. Or i don't practice any religion really unlike i've told that from our europe family from berlin city but yet like if you look back in history homophobia was not existent in africa. It was all about spirits. They you know there are historical pieces written by people who came they the. What did they engine. What can now so now they because somebody literally just told me that ghana just took down the sign and their airport. Basically saying don't bring you a homosexual. Don't bring your american homosexual. Basically the the brits came in and they were like what you're doing you're worshiping these data these wooden artifacts. This is disgusting tingle you will. You will worship this white cheese and they churches and they took the land to build these churches and they beat the religion into the people. And it's been pasta. Journalists darren's not whether religion comes on so the christianity in alaska was not there before it was out the land. We were around haiti's we worship the spirits within people so yes there were mendel had more feminine energy but it was no big deal that will women do mascot energy but people just were it was all about the spirit to the people. Same thing within the digital tracks of every country you know they had different genders make. It didn't involve app spirit. Some of these people were different. Genders different identities were considered most to consolidate watching. They go to for advice in that. So this was what it was like before the watch issue came stuff this this this is hidden atavistic. You worship our white qisas you go to churches and we will give you our education. And if you don't do it we will kill you. So why were building your churches. We will take every land to build these churches that you did not know you need and you will worship in them and we may sell some of your family. But that's just how it is. We are bringing you civilization and that's what happened so the religion that you see is bastardize. It's being used by men to subject. This is the sandwich that was jeans to to justify enslaving blah. Oh yeah i'll say you know all about this we to act like we forgot. So i'm like this same religion that you'll use to be people that have because this is the same that was used to to subjugate. Oh people hundreds of years. Is that the thank colonize the claim to jet but rejected the bullshit. A to when you when you occasionally bring this up in concert like when you really get real about the effects of racism knowing that you have a mixed audience that like what's the general reaction and how do you handle it if someone claps back at you. 'cause i try to do this once. And it didn't work with his sort of drunk frat boy. I'm rick james bitch audience. That was wanting him to just you know just be a caricature and you know. He hit the turn. Dick gregory on them. Yeah i mean here's the face the audience the ten come to see me. No i say well. I'm going to say so if you'll come to see me. You know that you get again. Also as a comedian. My first of cool is always to entertain. I'm here to make you laugh mar teacher. I'm not sure. That's not what i'm here to make you laugh so that is always my first cool. You need to be laughing now. If i'm slipping in some politics and slipping in some teaching you something as long as you're laughing it's all good so i don't go out and just go harding. Herb is the devil. You don't do that. I tell stories. I tell stories of experiences for my last. Because just by virtue of who i am i can statement so i don't have to make a big deal out black book. I'll just tell stories. I'll tell stories about the race. This woman on the train. Who didn't believe that. I belong diverse cloud. I'll tell the stories of being in the first class lounge at the airport and a guy asking where the exile. I'll just tell. I'll tell the story now. And they learned from stories that laughing.

Growing up in britain for time period like your formative years like ten eleven twelve like your your school existence or just like what did you generally do and During that time period well same as evie advocate. Did try just played the moscow work. It was a struggle. Being an african kid was not cool at the time. And even though i say england was racist it was a y kids. I was fighting with at school. It was all black kids the descendants of slaves from the caribbean african carribean kids. Because the same education that we will go and seventies eighties. The view of africans. The only image of africans on tv was either are sitting there with flies landing on our face begging for food donations or in tarzan movies chasing whiteman around in china and cookham in parts were bones and our noses so we were seen as primitive and heathen animalistic and that was what the image of africans was at the time so as an african kid is i will probably you guys in america. African squad trick in england was african. People spear chucker all of those. It was black because the british was so good hiding there that because this thing about the british the europeans the biggest lamest biggest belgians were disgusting with dutch. Were discussed number one about that. England was number one british empire. They were they just hit it. Better like icing this routine. The americans did of stealing share as stephen people and bringing it back to their own house whereas the brits stole but kept in other people's houses and they went to africa play stall people but then bring them back to england. I put them on. The colonies in the caribbean is not thanks to in barbados. In kids to make all of those people are descendants of slaves all the black people from the islands but they did not educate the the black people from as to where they came from. They just assumed that they were from the islands that there was a black africa and our platform islands. They didn't know so. I had so many fight to school with kids. We call continue cable african to make a run without bones. I used to get that school and it was two routes came out in england that they were mine. Holiday is they. didn't they will educate it's they will not educate the school system did not educate us to tell us the all black people k. From africa they didn't know so at school. I went for horrible time with other black kids. Just calling me names. I was constantly getting into the school. And that's where. I started using humor because getting into trouble because activate myself into the crazy kid severe because she will country face to big small. I would just fight. Be ready to fight to show. So that i wouldn't get bullied up. Allow any to our fighting so then. I started using humor to kind of circumvent those those confrontations to school okay. So it's weird to hear you say that because in my mind i thought that type of ignorance suggest for america because yeah like i also you know had experienced like that in the mid seventies or whatever like the the worse end salt you could say like on the on the playground. Whatever on recess to call someone african like. That's ones like already fuck you up. You said to me again but here that this also is happening with african.

We good we go. Independence my air independence in nineteen sixty four. Hey from nineteen sixty dollars. Even then the company was completely messed up to that because why to came out and took everything with them they would rate will resources over oil all the everydollar resources and then there was a lot of money in oil for a while but it all collapsed deal collapsed. The school systems was based on the british school systems. You know they took away the element that nigerians. All about africa's we're all about family learning trades and and tossing down stuff within founding and the british can forget what families that capitalism. It's all my capitalism you then get his qualifications and and so they completely change the way that nigerians worked and it's just ruined in my people in the country and few greedy people just cream. Everything of the history should know yours. You have to go to. Africa has asked race. I'm just oh yeah yeah When you were speaking of your family earlier are you in an active kind of Communication with them like. How does the idea of a family reunion work or well. That's my dad. Died a few years ago that the family he was definitely a man wants to nigeria. And i was very polite to him kersey he. He's the other half of my genetic tree. And i was very a nigerian southport to we. Spent my oldest. So when i'm going to go motherly i. I was going to do that so i was very polite. We'd sat with them to dinner. We talked. i asked him questions that i'd had for my childhood that. Why did you come back for us. Why and he had a stock of letters that he'd been sending to us as kids that will be returned because my mother's gadding because she he broke her you know. My mother was pregnant with my younger brother when my dad left. So imagine in. England in the seventy s given birth by herself as a single mom as a single mom in the seventies in england where shed no family. Nobody and she'll i have another brother. My brother were toddlers the time she was giving birth to my youngest brother so me. My brother had to go into foster care temporarily while she went into hospital to have this baby because she had not so. We will let you care you know. She got a wife heavy so to us while she was hostile to have this so my mother never forgave my father that key. Imagine all these women their husbands coming with flowers for their wives. You've had those papers and she's lying there by yourself with absolutely nobody so she never forgave him. Never forgave him. So as a result i kind of i'm going to say i hate him. Bows light looking abandoned us you know. I went through life with a horrible stepfather. Horrible knives right. You never came for us. So i give you respect as my father. Think about basle you gain so. I made the once and after that i was like. Oh i admit that was great. I took a few hours all you need. That's need so when he died. He's other kids like ecouen full funeral. And i'm like no i am sorry for your loss. Okay it was the father to you. And i'm so if i did not know the man so now i'm not coming to the funeral. What about your mother's big family. Oh my mother's side. The family not the wives he who killed. I didn't know any of those. But i'm not very my uncle's sister's yet. A lot k coupledom came to england so my mom found a good. We'll have friends that that's who i work with. Okay hey can you okay. I'm glad you're on the show to also clear up a this. This conception because americans have a different especially black americans they we have this different idea of who nigerians are coming from a really nice in dc not in houston and not in atlanta but yes outside of dc houston in atlanta danone. A no but it's it's almost like a crazy stereotype that we'd never get to dispel that myth because we rarely have nigerian guests on the show was this. What's the stereotype but just basically like the jaren scam artists that this visible scam artists. That we we have to that shit. I mean i can't even dan. I'm trying to get you to wipe it off the table. Very small very resourceful and your steeply after full for seventy scams and give them your money. Then i went tonight. That was sixteen. I went to nigeria. Went to lakers. I saw houses with signs on the houses said this house is not for sale. They had signs on the house because what was happening people were going on the internet and selling people thousands so selling houses don't belong to them so you in the house people. Yeah and if you don't excuse me in my house. I just bought this house like no. This is my ass but this is what was. Hey brought that scam here gene. Are you aware that. Nigeria is brought. That's game here and there's a scam all over europe craig. List your favorite apartment search. You see a beautiful house in. The price doesn't look believable. And then you call and they tell you to drive back and look at it from the outside and they give you a long story about how somebody lost a job but somebody died and didn't feel i didn't fall. I just got to the part where you drive has the house and i remember someone. Selling phone years ago on ebay or something. Cellphone was on the cellphone cellphone and is nigerian semi.

I just finished the first season of the show and so we had like a three month hiatus and oslo within three months on. Just knock out as much of this book as possible. Because i'm not gonna you know. Usually i was planning to go on the road and go hiatus and that didn't happen so i was stuck at home so i just knuckle dad's just started right in this book and this book in the pandemic and even when i went back to work on second season the show i was doing four fifty hour weeks on the show in the riots wound by in the scripts then go on and taping and then after that i'd come home whatever time web it's nine ten o'clock at night and then i'd right through to four in the morning so that's what i was.

So not one of those people that can go and into. I three hours a day and day. I just go around and sit down and write and then what my anything else for like three weeks. I won't even look at it because my brain. And then i got. She does deadline. Burma much actors. Who i've only spoken. And that's how it was like just sporadic splurges of writing and botanic cathartic. Because you know. I didn't realize i was still holding onto certain themes for my child like the particular chapter about my horribly abusive stepfather. When i was right in that chapter the anger the fury the hatred all can wrap backup like it was yesterday so that was kind of interesting right in low shirt and those students coming up and then be able to let those feelings out onto the page and just feeding so much better and feeling cleanse afterwards but there was also lots of funny. Stop the happened. It wasn't all doom and gloom and depression and racism sadness and and abuse you know at that was some fun things. Yeah it's a very funny book. Yeah there aren't the and some of the darkest parts or some of the funniest part. But it's interesting that you that you say.

"That's what i put up with for four years. But i refuse to be pushed out the job refused. I stuck it out for four years. That's like you guys are gonna drive me at this job. I'm i'm better than you can have to come to terms so i stuck one at a guy threatened physically to settle equal median worth again. I got this. I will send them both to your house because i know you live. And he never spoke to me again and the guys kind of laid off afterwards but that say it wasn't the racism and that push me out of the job. It was the misogyny so what happened was working and all the things to get promotions. That you're supposed to get you do a certain amount of time. Yes saddam skill get promoted. I was getting the promotions. They were give me the money but they wouldn't give me the responsibility that went with that promotion. So you know at one point. I'm supposed to be qualified to run my own site. My own construction site and i was like well. You've given me the experience. You giving me the promotion and the pay the pay to go with it. Where is the responsibility now. Where if you work on your own on site you might fall down there and there and her yourself in her womb or something cannot babies. Furthermore guys going to listen to go run in the side. So we'll just leave you where you are. And so i decided to go to a grievance hearing i decided to take it to the top brass of the company my union who had been paying four years refuse to representing the unions was like this woman stuff side i covered so i had to represent myself at this grievous. He here with the top brass of the company. Twenty one year old black girl to both weltman. Obviously i lost that. Where would do nothing here. You go so. I decided that that. I need to get out and i ask them to lay meal and i said look. If you don't let me off. I'm gonna go public with this company. Give me my money. Let me go. And so i left that job in that time i have to be in the summertime and so i was like what is this summer. I'm going to enjoy myself. Do the things that i've always wanted to do. I'm to do an acting. Workshop stand up comedy because people always told me that i should be a performance and enjoy my summer and at the end of that summer. I'll go back to engineering and another engineering job. While that was twenty six years ago. I never ended up. Comedy just took off. And i just have okay doing this for a bit longer and see how it goes a little bit longer going. Well i'll keep doing this. And he just continued until present day of that is the the experience of having any real soul-sucking job particularly the one that you described that is awful in countless ways will make you appreciate how great a life in comedy and the arts is not that it doesn't come with its own challenge by every interview. I think people go. What's it lot of woman coming. Is it hard. And i'm like. I built elevators for living and i. I went food that for several years. Compared to that being a woman can't stand up comedy to a man's world is a walk in the park in comparison. So yeah it. Kind of set me up for this life and to the hustles and the trials and tribulations of this business salvia kinda set me up in good stead and it's got a like fuel you up to succeed so they do never have to go back absolutely. I went and i'm a person that if i go for something i throw myself at one hundred percent. I'll throw everything i if it doesn't work then move on and try something else but throw everything i've got to be the best at it. Yeah so talk to me about throwing yourself into a memoir.

Who's just moved bewitching accent and these strange catchphrases them. Yeah she was. She was incredible. I didn't realize club. Mtv went out outside we. Mtv we had all the shows. And i was a kid. I thought my god americans have a way of life you know. When i was a child it was like oh candies the aspect. The toys kids seem to the kids seem to live near beach because every show i watch kids with near the beach and then after school there were riding around on bicycles solving crimes. You know i was like why am i glad i'm supposed to be in america and i never really had. I belong and i couldn't wait. Yeah and i think he found the only part that is true. Is the constantly solving crimes on your bicycle absolutely. Yeah constantly doing that enough to do that now. On the bicycle. I mean like a bus or something but yeah you know. Listen you adapt over time. There's there's a moment in candid you memoir where your record collection gets gets nicked. She's using some british that counts can. Yeah can we talk about what was in that record collection. Oh i had i mean. I was a massive hip hop fan in nine hundred at cub every week. Doing the running man in the clubs and learn dance from hip hop videos on mtv. So i had big daddy kane. I had public enemy. Had de la soul ads. Sweet tia had queen latifah mony. Love like a massive biz. Markie all the all the hip hop giants of that time had collection on vile. That was my job. I was a mad hypothesis and fun. Funk from george clinton had george clinton cadel delic's yeah lots of soul late link collins jane. Jane's brown and michael la prince. You know at a nice mixture but it was mainly fun. Console hip hop. Have you rebuilt that vinyl collection. It's all on spotify now okay. I didn't never the vital again. I've still got some vinyl but most of it but you know with the digital stuff is pretty cool. I can listen to anywhere in the car or whatever. Scientists play me public enemy and all the relatives and it is however one of the last major holdouts streaming is de la soul. Yeah yeah i'm which is tragedy. Yeah and then. I bought their last album to sure domestically molest definitely got their last. You know what. I bought it. I haas sibley their new stuff is licensed for streaming but like three feet high and rising. Yeah all that has not been. It's they keep saying it's about it's about to come out on streaming it's about to come out hasn't come out yet. I think it's a repurchased it. I thought i'd be purchased. I was listening to maybe not. Maybe i'm wrong labor. 'cause i had. I had a whole cache of downloaded music from back in the day when used to buy music and download it though. I've seen the downloaded stuff. So maybe that's okay. That's probably what you were. That was favorite albums. i used to be in dallas. Oh so i have the same hair in fact kind of reverted back to this. I had this haircut when i was nineteen. And now i've got again forty seven thou- i-it's it's so pulling it off. Thank you yeah. Three behind rising is just unparalleled so creative and and insane martha we will. Yeah yeah toco dancer so we have to talk about your grandmother. Because she's such a big part of of the book and the book starts out with this really great kind of like historical overview of nigeria and how colonialism shaped your family and all really starts with your grandmother and she's fascinating character. 'cause she's married to this very important chief. She is the first of his many wives. She's the favorite of his wife. So can you tell us a little about about your connection to her and Yeah y. y. Your mother calls you so basically my grandmother. Yeah as you said. She was married to achieve so my mother's mother. Magnitude chief in nigeria. Polygamy was practiced a lot back then still kind of is certain tribes and so she was one of many ways but she was the number one so she was kind of the more powerful worth and the favorite wife of her husband and so the otherwise didn't like anti lock kids because children are almost commodity. Kids the of are and she kept having shed a lot of children and eleven children in all has sons kept dying mysterious circumstances eib tapped by dogs or just dying mysteriously and she was convinced the other wives were killing. I thought because in my ears a super patriarchal society so some of the most important babies girls the boys are the most important ones so but so have power was almost they were trying to diminish power by killing all his sons so my mother actually has no full mother and father brothers buddy heart problems but no brothers because all of them died before they were like four years old and so my grandmother was like these are trying to kill me. My mother who was out store was a favorite child as well and so my grandmother was saying to my grandfather. Look they're trying to kill me and if it if it happens to me make sure you send my out of my jury. So they don't get because my mother was being educated by my dad and i usually educate children. They usually just go. Groom them for lifetime of multiple. But because my mom was quite intelligent father was taken sending her to school of public schools and having traveled with him so the otherwise who now jealous of my mother that killed the brothers so now they were focusing their on my mom so my grandmother before she died she used to tell funny stories. You know about how. When i come back. I'm going to have all these kids. I'm not going to be married to achieve. I don't want any man in my life. I don't want no kids. I'm gonna be i'm gonna be in england's going to be amnestied perfect english. I'm going to do a man's job. I'm gonna be free. I'm gonna live a life of freedom and just do what i want..

Prophet lab a stellar community for using podcast who profit and grow not just your audience but also your service practices. So they know their stuff. They were actually featured by russell. Brunson at one of his click bottles events. They were asked to come on and teach about podcasting. And what's interesting about. That is that they were just members in the click funnels group and they you know. They slowly by contributing bringing value to that group ended up on stage with russell talking about podcasts. And you know we talk about this in the interview and this is something you should definitely listen to and take notes on because most people get this entirely wrong.

"And I'll use a perfect example I've had you know? You know inklings that these children are being. Abused at home just from child seen so you you call the state and then. Hopefully the state goes on with it, and you very rarely ever get any feedback back to know your. Your report wasn't right. Because of this the other thing or you know maybe next time you know this is what you should be looking for. We don't get any of that and again. That's how our local system operates I mean is. Is it the best? No I mean I'm sure there's some stuff that's getting caught. You know how much of it is pretty overburdened on a system. No, even if it's sixty percent Nabi generous and say at sixty percent. Sixty percent. You're putting on a system. That's already on the verge of collapse, right? Well the other thing that happened that day that we testified in front of Congress was So law passed, and it was unanimous, and they said if if my friend amy I hadn't testified. She actually had to relinquish her rights to her daughter. In order to get her the help she needed, so both of us told our stories, and they said you know. Had you guys not come? I don't know if it would have been unanimous, but wow. This is amazing, so you're coming back. That do that same day. Colorado also passed a law. That's in the works right now to. Make it mandatory for insurance companies to cover a mental health checkup every every year. which I think is amazing. You know every everybody's well checkup is is covered by insurance every year, but now a mental health well checkup is required and I think that's amazing. 'cause Colorado's had its share of you know suicides and shootings, and it seems to be getting worse so I think a mental health checkup for everybody is important. That is absolutely amazing work to you. Were you nervous? Yes very much so. I didn't know what to expect. I'd never been to the building or anything, and it was. It was a really cool experience, but I'm sure it was because. I. Am Not a big fan of politicians period. Matter who they are but. To to be able to have that influence I mean that's that's strong, and you just said it i. mean you just said just you and this other woman that went and testified. What difference you made one person two people sorry to people made Speaks values. Values, and that's. Amazing, that's absolutely amazing. You got a lot to be proud of. Thank you when you wrote the book. Did that was that kind of therapy for you as well to get. It was hugely therapeutic. I actually had a woman tell me that I had to write a book. She was up a life coach, and so I was like. No, I'm not an English Major. You know I'm not a writer and she said Patina you're a storyteller. That's all you have to do is get your story out there. That's editors will help you with the rest. So. I just I said okay well. I teach so I was like okay as soon as it's Christmas break. I'm going to spend some time writing my book and we'll see how it goes. And it was literally like a download of information like it took me five weeks to write the whole book, and that I took ten days off at Christmas to go visit family, so it was, it was really fast. and. It was just an amazing I felt so much better when I was done, and both of my boys actually wrote a chapter in the book. So my older son wrote from a brothers perspective, what it's like to have a brother with reactive attachment disorder, and then my my Rad kid, he needed a little more help, so we actually did like a an interview like this and I took word for word notes on what he said, and then kind of helped him. Put it into chapter, but. He was very much on board. When we first started talking about the book, he was a little ambivalent about it. But ultimately he loves to help people, so he said well. Do you think this book is going to help people and I said yes I do, and he said well then let's do it so and he's been speaking with me. On occasion. I did a couple workshops that he came and gave his perspective, and he's a really good public speaker so. and. She's now owns it. He does, and he's. He's actually doing a research paper for English right now on the societal impacts of Rad on kids, and that's pretty amazing, and he thinks he might want to be a therapist and help other kids so. Yeah, I hope it. I hope it works out. I'm really proud of him. Now that's what the society needs more of. It needs more people to stop worrying about the labels that they get put on them, and the people need to start coming forward like your son in owning it in understanding that hey. It's it's not a label. This is what I have in. It's okay that I have it and I can overcome it because that's what's going to make a difference in the society. Yeah, people actually owning it and understanding that it's okay when I was very careful about which stories. I put in the book. That wouldn't embarrass him. You know so I say. There's a bunch stories about you trashing your room, but you know the the Rolling Stones Trashed Hotel Room, so it's. It happens. Sixteen mom is. You gotta give them a little bit of leeway exactly.
