"Has never been more important. You see in the new world of streaming If an artist can create that perfect single, their song will be streamed billions and billions of times, making them anywhere from 2 to $3. Welcome back to for my Mariana Trail that was comedian Trevor Noah, making a music streaming joke while hosting last month's Grammy Awards ceremony. This hour. We've been talking about artist compensation in the age of music streaming and in the age of the pandemic, I'm talking with Cody Fitzgerald and Josephine Shetty, both co founders of the Union of musicians and Allied Workers. And both musicians themselves. Josh can the CEO at Band Camp and not still going? Oh Sky associate editor here at KQED for KQED Arts So Trevor Noah joke on a stage like the Grammy shows that there's pop culture level awareness enough to make a joke that you know the audience will get nasty. Do you think this could be an inflection point? Culturally, where organizing efforts can maybe move the needle on artist? Compensation? Is this movement that will gain momentum? You think Radio. I think for so long music and art in general, such an individualistic pursue and then also not to mention artist kind of a lot of the time feel pressure to project this image of financial success, which makes it really hard to transparently talk about the economic realities of music. So I think just the fact that artists are building collective power and just talking about how much they make out in the open and identifying as workers is actually a big cultural shift, But I think we'll make this Conversation. Keep progressing. And Eric

"The Grammys were a bust for CBS on Sunday night. Its audience of 9.2 million was a record low and less than half of the 18.8 million watched the show last year. It's a concerning trend for TV executives who saw a similar steep decline for the Golden Globes and record low ratings for the Emmys last year. They're wondering if it's a pandemic era anomaly or perhaps The new normal for award shows at a time when entertainment is becoming more fragmented.

When I thought that that was the best candidate out of all of the out of all the album of the year nominees, which were a little weird this year, but I think that's also due to the fact that there's just so much music coming out of the week that I think anyone's going to think picking eight will not drive with their tastes. Those two records, folklore and evermore were very representative her artistic growth. Musically and lyrically and the vagaries of the Grammy Year which for the ceremony ran from September 1st of 2019, which was like 10 years ago to August 60th of last year.

It feels like a completely different life but luckily at least digitally we get to talk with colin goddard christian heine chris brown and stephanie abrams. All of whom are these great gun.

Just some hands were discussing the passage of hr eight and fourteen forty six in the us house of representatives. And we're gonna tackle questions like what are these bills. What do they do. And what is even the point of a background check anyway. Yeah and i know. Some of our listeners are with from day one and so they may be like. Oh i totally know about all these bills and background checks which is awesome.

"Went on as she got a little bit older to hike some other long trails in the us the appalachian trail which is over two thousand miles on a long the continental divide trail which is over three thousand miles and so by hiking. Those three the pacific crest trail the appalachian trail the continental divide trail which are all super long trails. That's called the triple crown of hiking and there. Aren't that many people in the you know in the world who have ever achieved the triple crown of hiking. The length of all three of those redid it by the time she was done she had hiked in twenty two different states and she had worn out six pairs of shoes. That was a pretty amazing story. I think about a young person you know. She was like twelve thirteen fourteen in the time. She was doing those long hikes with their dad. But it shows something that you know adults and kids with the right gear and the right motivation something they can easily do together and accomplish some pretty amazing things. It says. at age thirteen. She had hiked all three of the trails for a total of seven thousand. Nine hundred forty two miles. That is amazing. Yes it. is you talk about. Giardi doubt was short short hikes. But what kind of physical condition and mental condition to someone need to be in to accomplish. Maybe not to the extreme that redid. But just to do what you did. What kind of physical and mental health do you have to have to accomplish that right. So i'm not a doctor of course but Was already doing before i started. The hiking of the parks was. i mean. I take my dogs out on walks twice a day. So i was like twenty thirty minute walks once or twice each day so i was doing regular walking before before we started hiking. The parks and one thing. We did to that. I think is smart. Is you need to know where you are. As far as you know fiscal capel capabilities. We would every time we hiked there was like a ranger station there the park ranger station and we would stop in and talk to someone one of the rangers and he standing there looking at us. So obviously we're not twenty years old. Where like sixty plus with a little bit and we'd say okay. We want to hike several miles. Here what do you suggest. And they can talk to you about. You know..

"That's the biggest advantage. I see of travel is that it is such an educational opportunity for children and it reinforces what they learn in the school systems hundred percent very well said and if i may add to this something that i think most parents are not really aware of our additional benefits that come out from traveling with your children so for example we all know or suspect that they are learning about the world as they travel through it which certainly was the case when we did it with our children. You know those cultural differences relieve impression and now so many things but there is also not only they exploring the world outside of themselves but unbeknownst to them. They're really learning about themselves. They're learning life skills. They're developing not just new perspectives but discovering personal interests. That that's this interesting. Byproduct of getting your kids out of their comfort zone and from what's familiar now. That's what travel affords Everybody not just children but particularly children who are going through. Whether it's adolescence are changes that are going on in their lives. All of this mixed together with this discovery about themselves through what they're seeing externally is i wasn't aware of When we embarked our trip and really realized. When i got back it's no surprise at my older son is now twenty three years old. Got his first job. Out of college at spacex he developed this love and appreciation for not just photography. that's a life skill. He learned while he was driving but an appreciation for our nautical engineering and space rocketry. That came out of visiting places like the kennedy space center and so forth so it could lead to be really anything but this gives children opportunity to discover themselves without the kind of influence of their peers and and you know kind of the day to day struggles that they have is young people. I hope the audience out there really takes this to heart. Maybe in some way practices on their own because to be aware of it will really enhance the experience. I think without being no intentional about it. 'cause it should just it just kind of happens and that's where the magic is and that's why go to career in trying to promote All the things that families can do together not just a theme park beach the case. It's some we talked about.

Parents grandparents alike will take the time to research. Discover not to put a plug for family travel association that i that i founded seven years ago but family travel dot org. I urge here audience. Check it out and maybe get some ideas and look at things that you never thought were even possible. Scuba diving with with children is is a possibility. I've gone on dive trips all around the world with my kids and other families ten years ago. I didn't think that was even remotely possible. I didn't realize that a ten year old could certify. Get their certification. I thought it would have been at least in the teens. If not a little older but anyway there's so much out there but as we kind of started with its finding that that kind of common ground that so important one planning something like this you know. What are some of the things that everyone in the family likes to do. And one last thing a common mistake that's also made when it comes to planning travel With families and certainly with multi jan groups is that they don't consider the activities before the destination in other words. People said okay. Where do you wanna go. And let's say for the sake of argument. Someone says i want to go to hawaii and allies. Great were really. What hawaii is is destination with beaches resorts things like diving as i mentioned some cultural experiences but if you pick the destination i you limit yourself to that destination offers instead. Start with all. I wanna go. Sailing are oh. I wanna beach vacation decide on the activity then. Your geography is much larger than you can choose from a greater variety not to mention expenses. Let's say everyone decides to go to hawaii but some people live in florida You know those are all factors so pick the activities. I the destination second. I hope you enjoy today's episode of the adventures with remy.

"Santa claus never wrapped our gifts otherwise we got our gifts from santa and they had a double meaning because one year. We got winter coats which we need it and another year we would get a toy. Maybe it just kinda seemed. Did we need something. And if we did like the winter coat. That's what we're getting if we didn't need that or we'd really been asking for a certain item. That's what my parents would try to get us but with having you know eight children a lot of times. It was just what we need it. It was an item that We had been defeated and they needed to get us and so when we woke up they how did santa. No we needed this and the comments were were so funny and how a sister. That's a year older than i am. We always got the same gifts so christmas morning. We would get up no wrapping gifts. We would put our christmas deaths on and then we went to christmas morning mouse and we would go there and come home and my mom would make these wonderful christmas free and they were actually Show that was rolled out. And then it had christmas fruit nuts and it had brown sugar and she would make this up the day before and they'd roll it up and then Shape it into a wreath and then she would slice it so that the inside would show and that was the decoration for the because his roots there were abra cots yellow and then there were red and green cherries that were in there along with the nuts and so it was just so pretty and she'd put a little drizzle frosting over the top. And that's what we got for breakfast on christmas morning after church so we come home and have that have our breakfast. We would just be giddy at the table because we knew what was under that tree and we wanted to open those gifts. We wanted to unwrap and so as we ate our christmas breakfast. And my dad and my mom would basically say what they were thankful for and they would mention things that most people would have on a thanksgiving table. We had a christmas. My mom and my dad would go back in time and say we're so happy. This happened this year or so happy. That happened this year and really making note of good things that we did may be in school or good things that may be. We did you just around the house with my mom. My grandmother when she was around And just taking note taking charge of the activities and things that we did throughout the year that maybe we forgot about and everybody was mentioned and everybody was celebrated and that was going on during christmas breakfast and i do remember that. Little christmas wreath. We had a slice of was also a gift that my mom and my dad gave to the neighbors and to dear friends of there's.

"Was mortified by that at silly thing i five sisters and two brothers. My mom and my dad. We lived in montana in a mining town. And not a lot of money to go round. But i never knew that especially at christmas time because my parents saved all year so that we could have a celebration you see. My dad grew up on a ranch and his celebrations were small and my mother grew up as a single child in the war in england and so christmas was always special with the english traditions but they were never in her home she got to walk around and see those tradition so see decided when she had children that we were going to have family tradition in the home to celebrate and it started about two weeks before Chris where we would get together on a friday night when my father was done working and he would pick us up whatever till learn more at home at the time and we would go out to dinner. He gave each child that went to dinner. A five dollar bill and said now we're going to go shopping downtown which was all dressed up in Beautiful christmas decorations and we would go shopping. And you could buy gifts for the family and with five sisters and two brothers and five dollars and my mom and dad. A doesn't go really far so you had to be kind of creative and you would team up with may be your sister and then you'd have ten dollars and you could buy gifts. We would shop two or three days before christmas. We got to put our tree up and then all the presence went under the tree and we would be shaking gifts. And it's really really difficult for us to calm down. Go to sleep any night of the week because we knew what was downstairs and we talked about christmas when we talked about santa and being the area that i lived in. We had snow so we didn't have to worry about having a white christmas so my mom would tend us outside to do sledding and to really get some of that energy out so when we did come in have dinner go to bed. We could do that but christmasy was a totally different story. We would go sledding. We'd come in the house and would probably have some kind of traditional italian meal now. We weren't italian. She thought that the carbs the pasta help asleep. She also made wit. My mom called a hi-fi now that i know what it was. I just giggle and laugh because it was mad dog twenty twenty and seven up and so we had our little cocktail and my mom was okay with us having it only on christmas eve because she really wanted to get some sleep in so we had new pajamas for christmas. Eve said good night when upstairs and waited for santa to arrive..

"Because the ones that you saw from this from last season when you went this year than you would seem at different houses and it was really kinda cool but he always had a different theme every single year and that was the highlight and the last place that we went to was to see what he had done. They still do it to this day. It takes hours ticket into that street. Which is crazy. People sit in traffic lanes for hours to get into be able to see that street but that was really really probably one of the most fun memories. That i have growing up was doing that as a family. I know that after we would go and look at lights. It was always christmas eve. We would go home for dinner and then we get ready for midnight mass because we we would go to midnight mass every single year and my parents never argued. They never fought. They are still married to this day. Except for christmas eve and it used to just as kids would get so upset because every year christmas eve they would have a argument and it was horrible and we would sit in the car just waiting and hoping that whoever whether it was mom or dad that was so upset would come join us to go to midnight mass and what we didn't realize until we were older of courses the reason they would get in. A fight is They had to have a reason for them to be able to put out the santa claus gifts without us knowing that santa claus come so all these years we always thought that that was the only time that mom and dad fought which is kinda funny now but we would go to christmas mass and come home and we would common. We'd have our stockings and we couldn't look the stockings on christmas eve but we got our santa claus gift and we always got to open one package. That one package that. We always opened with our christmas pajamas. So when mom took pictures the next morning when we were opening gifts that we'd always have pre new pajamas for christmas and so that was kind of fun and then of course christmas morning nobody can come out of their rooms until mom and dad gave the signal and Then we don't come out and open our presents and we always took turns. Everybody could see what everyone god and then mom would make his breakfast. And then we'd get ready and go to mask because usually my brother was an altar boy for christmas. So i remember when i was thirteen or fourteen thirteen or fourteen. I got this really cool hairdryer and had all the little things and attachments. And i was so excited and so i went in to get ready for mass. We only had two bathrooms. One of my parents remember when arboretum and we never use their bathroom and so my brother was taking a bath. And i was blow drying my hair and trying to get ready because we were running late in my hip. My curling iron was plugged in. But with this new thing. i wasn't going to have to use my curling iron. All had to us was the hairdryer. And because i didn't know what i was doing when attachments hairdryer went inside the bathtub. So that was a god wasn't done with my brother. He needed him to be an ultra boy that day and he survived ice screened. Because that's all i do. My dad ran in and unplugged it and So he still gives me a bad time about this that we are not allowed to share bathroom together to get ready. But i remember that was probably the first and last time. I use that hairdryer too. Because i.

"Favorite gift was a bicycle and add fringe on the steering wheel. A headland abell and it was a girl's bicycle. I got very proficient on that bike. I could ride up and down the ridge to see my friends and there was a nice meal involved in that trip. And i got to the point that i could ride down that hill on the handlebars of that bike. Even though we can't visit with my granddaughter's christmas. I'm looking forward to continuing my food traditions with them. We're going to have a zoom christmas this year on christmas day. Of course food will be involved during our session. One of my granddaughters making my recipe for christmas punch. The other one of my granddaughters is making her grandfather's favorite fruit salad recipe. It's cold grape nuts. Whip and it's a fairly complicated recipe. Because she will have to make an egg hunting and let it cool i. I'm looking forward to talking her through making that. It's a little bit complicated. Because she and her mother had never actually heard of a double boiler so i had to order a double boiler from amazon ship. It to their home so they would have it ready to make the special dish later in the morning. We're going to have our main meal together and the adult sas selected an adult cocktail that we night this year. It's going to be moses at thanksgiving. It was champagne with cranberry juice and cranberry slow moving it. After we came back from mass we would have a bite to eat and we never waited till christmas morning so after midnight. When we got back home we would open all of our gifts so that meant that all of us would sleep in giving our mother time to do the turkey because we were still in bed not causing any commotion in the kitchen because we were four children but we also had three cousins living with us. So yeah so. Christmas was always christmas eve story about christmas. That is very very meaningful to both my husband in i. My husband's name is gordon. Now we have two girls so when they were little. I made christening outfit so we would dress the doll in the christening gown and put the dog in a little cradle under the tree and then before the girls were allowed or anybody was allowed to open treats. We would sing happy birthday baby. Jesus.

And everyone would Would cry when you cry. When the cousins had to leave to go back to ohio because we so enjoyed being together but my favorite christmas memories. They pretty much all involve family to give you context. There were five of us children and we were all world war. Two baby boom babies. Needless to say post world war two. There wasn't a lot under. The christmas tree for us tended to be practical things like a new pair of new underwear socks. A new ream of three hold paper for a school notebooks. And if we had really been good a box of brand new crayons and a coloring book so the important part of christmas for the day for us was going to our grandmother's i we would go to my grandmother lops. She lives two miles away in a huge old farmhouse and she was german and her famous meal was breakfast. We always went there for breakfast. And she always made cinnamon buns from scratch. I always got to put the frosting on the cinnamon buns and we would have our cinnamon buns with chocolate. Our next visit would be to our hill grandmother. She lived a few minutes away close to the river in a big old house and we went there for dinner every year. She was famous for her home. Made dinner rolls and when those rules would come out of the oven. I always got to talk those roles with butter. I have such good memories of my grandmother's meals and working with them. The kitchen sadly both of my grandmothers had passed by the time. I was twelve but then christmas took a better term for us. Economy got a little bit better and My dad was still working three jobs.

The family visits in. I was younger in the family. Because my dad was the youngest in his family he was the youngest child so i was younger than most my cousins but i would sit at the table with my cousins who were ten or more years older than i was and would hear them talking about their life stories and their adventures and sharing family memories and these were the best holidays that we had they were too so memorable and i wrote about it in my christmas letter in the past few years and one of my cousins who called me immediately after she got the card and with the newsletter.

"Always been a big deal on my mother's side of the family. Her father was our families. Santa claus which is something. He passed down from his uncle. His uncle was their family. Santa claus and it was just a really big deal. Migrant father took it to another level in addition to you know scrimping and saving all year long tobias all presence he was also very artistic and creative and also an engineer. He could work with both sides of his brain and he designed. It took him a decade to develop this but he designed a artificial christmas tree. That would collapse down into a twelve inch box and it was made out of layers and each layer was a little bit smaller than the one before and it. It looks like an art deco. Tiered christmas tree and he was also inspired by the light. Bright toys we had as kids. You know the the light box that had the the black paper on the front and you'd punch the little plastic pins inside. And then they would be. They would glow and be lit from inside while he used that technology. Or that inspiration on this tree. And the tree has holes drilled all over it and on those holes glass beads that mimic and tinsel you know wrapped tinsel around the tree garland's it's really spectacular and i. It means a lot to me. Because i was old enough to help them. Build these trees. The series of trees that eventually became this beautiful thing. That was actually mass producible enough that he went. Got a patent for it. Which i have hanging in my home. It wasn't christmas until we saw that tree. Go up and he would always let me but the final piece on this tree. There was one piece that was not part of the tree it was. It was santa on his sleigh and he had. He had made a little shelf for that to be up on the tree and that was always the highlight of precursor Celebration for me was helping. Put up that tree and get.

I love watching hallmark movies even though the script is pretty predictable. I love watching the snowfall sledding ice skating and throwing snowballs i closed my eyes and immediately returned to my childhood. I remember the excitement of christmas. And the anticipation of what was to come. waiting for. Santa claus was so difficult as with many of the stories. You will hear today. Christmas and my family was more about faith family and food than it was about the toys. We would receive christmas presents from santa. Mostly were items. My sister nine. Eat it pajamas. Sox clothing i remember praying so hard that santa would bring me something that i could take to school for show and tell after the winter break. I certainly didn't wanna talk about my new underwear or my new stocks. Usually santa came through. And i had something appropriate to take school one of my favorite memories as decorating our christmas tree. I remember my mother walking with my sister and me into the woods to find the perfect tree one would be too short another too tall one would be too wide another not full enough and then there was the perfect tree and my mother would saw the truck and three of us would hall at back to the house. My dad was lounge in his recliner. While the three of us decorated the tree my father liked to hang the tinsel however his idea of hanging the tinsel was to throw handfuls of it onto the tree where it would be bunched up and look messy. I like to hang at one piece at a time. My dad was fairly patient with everything else. But not with hanging those long strands of shiny silver. I love sitting in the dark and the living room with only the lights from the tree twinkling. I felt such peace. As i admire the beauty of our handiwork. My mom is artistic and had made a ceramic nativity scene which we placed under the tree. And i still have that nativity set. I loved visiting my grandparents on christmas day and playing with my cousins. It was a fun time. And i cherish those memories and i'm glad to share that with you on this bonus episode of the adventures with grammy. Podcast it is filled with my guests favorite.

"grammy" Discussed on Adventures with Grammy

"To the adventures with grabbing podcast. I'm your host caroline berry. This podcast is for grandparents who are on the go with their grandchildren. It's for grandparents. Who went to hold special places in grandchildren's hearts and it's for parents who went to ensure loving relationships across the generations. The first podcast is to acquaint you with the format of the upcoming programming and to give you background as to why i have started this project. I have six reasons. They are my grandchildren gavin. Cain channing hunter scarlett and juliet. I want them to dream big. I am an advocate for travel adventures. Because i believe these experiences provide children opportunities for stealth learning and early career exploration key components of big dreams. And what do. I mean by stealth learning learning that takes place. When children least expected they learn about fractions when they're baking cookies and they learn about science when they're baking sour dough starter and the brand and they learn about history when they're visiting historic homes. And they don't even realize they're learning because they're not sitting behind a desk they're not in school learning takes place everywhere and when learning is combined with having fun the learning sticks when our children were young my late husband and i took them on adventures history came alive for them and it was easy for them to learn geography as we traveled across state lines. I want to give my grandchildren. Those same types of experiences and i want to help other grandparents do the same thing. How can you expect your grandchildren to dream big. We don't give them the opportunity to know what is possible in their adult lives. I am a retired high school teacher. I know first hand the importance of children having a vision for their future talking with children as young as five or six years old about their interest and then showing them the real world will have a huge impact on their education and career. Goals and research backs this up one of the adventures. My grandchildren and i enjoyed was a visit to a chocolate factory as we were leaving. One of my grandchildren said when he grows up. He wants to be a chocolatier until that day he didn't even know the word existed and he certainly didn't know the career existent another grandson told his brother as they were leaving an arcade that he went to work there when he grew up and his brother retorted. You don't wanna work there you want to own it. Adventures definitely give children opportunities to dream big. In addition to stealth learning and career exploration the adventures with grammy. Podcast aims to help grandparents answers. Three important questions. How do i ensure a special place in my grandchild heart. Where can i take my grandchildren that is budget friendly fun and educational for all of us. How can i ensure the good times we share will become long lasting memories. My grandchildren will cherish forever. I have structured the podcast into seasons and each week i will interview guests and we will discuss the designated topics season one look at the grandparent experience overall. What is it like to be a grandparent and twenty twenty one and how has grand parenting changed since you were a child. What are the expectations for today's grandparents. We'll look at the grandparent relationship bonding and look at what the research has to say. And we'll also look at what grandparents can do to influence a child's education and career exploration season two will present practical suggestions for interacting with grandchildren.
