Peaking quit the social media platform wednesday night in a series of now deleted tweets.

"harassment" Discussed on Short Wave
"Now if the mosaic expedition sounds familiar to you, , it might be because back in December we aired two episodes on the research being done. . But today we're turning away from the research and focusing on Chelsea's reporting. . The Mosaic Expedition Gender Discrimination and harassment and how they're an all too common reality for many field scientists. . I'm Maddie Safai and this a shortwave from NPR. . So on October eighth a few weeks. . Into the mission a meeting was called and it was led by this communications manager, , with Awa, , the German institute kind of spearheading the mission like who was there and what was that meeting about. . Right. . So that meeting was held by Katharina Vice Tweeter who was a Manager and she held that meeting with all of the journalists who were on board the ship at that time, , and so at that point, , there were four of us all women, , and so we all sat down and she kind of told us. . I want to just clarify. . The rules of the new dress code that was announced yesterday at the General Meeting, , and then she went on to tell us you know this is a safety issue and there are a lot of men on board this ship <hes>, , and some of them are going to be on this ship for months at a time, , and this is a safety issue something that needs to be taken seriously and so. . I should say she did not come out and say we are concerned that. . Men On this shipper going to harass you or assault you if you dress a certain way so <hes> but it was heavily implied by this. . Multiple Times telling us there are many men on board the ship and you need to not wear tight fitting clothing or revealing clothing. . Yeah. . Yeah I mean, , what did you take from that? Like ? when you walked away from that meeting what did you take from them? ? Well what we took from. . It was that there was a risk of harassment or something worse. . You know if we didn't dress more modestly on board the ship. . And, , we really were alarmed by this because we started wondering. . If. . There had been some incidents that had prompted the change in the rules and what was this bit about a safety issue <hes>? ? was there some threat to the safety of the women on board and what? ? Exactly? ? was that threat and so we were you know, , of course irritated. . By by implication that we should have to change the way we dress because there are a lot of men on board the ship, , but we were also alarmed. . Yeah I, , mean when you wrote about the dress code meeting, , you noted that it came after some problems with harassment that had already sort of percolated on the ship. . That's correct. . Although at the time we actually were not aware of that. . So as I reported the story <hes> that that came out in my reporting later, , there had been <hes> a an incident in which some women on board the ship reported to the cruise leader that that they had been harassed by men on board the ship, , and then you know there was a meeting, , it was brought to the captain and the men were prohibited from further contact with those participants and and it was never made widely known. . Anybody else on board that ship that there had been an incident like this And so nobody knew about this at the time, , the dress code was announced. . So you know we all Kinda had this suspicion about a safety. . What exactly does that mean? ? was there some incident but I did not find out that any incident had occurred until much later. . And this wasn't the only incident of gender-based discrimination while you were aboard. Right . you wrote that the dress code kind of became a symbol of these inequities, , but there was other stuff going on to. . That's correct. . So there was the harassment incident <hes> that occurred shortly before the dress code was enacted, and , then later on, , there was an incident in which. . A group of Were kind of called together. . Asked to volunteer basically to participate in a work assignment and the work incitement involved a helicopter ride over to. . The Polar Stern, , which was the main research vessel participating the expedition and. . Helping to unload a bunch of boxes and supplies and that sort of thing and so. . The group volunteered for this work assignment, , originally consisted of both men and women <hes>, , and then later on the cruise leader removed the to women participants from that assignment and replace them with men and I'm told that this event also sparked a lot of resentment <hes> among the women who were familiar with the incident, , and so you know I asked crews leader later about this incident and he said that he did this to comply with a German law that dictates How much men are allowed to lift on work assignments versus women are allowed to lift on work assignments <hes> but it was a little odd because he sent me the law and I looked at over and the way he described the work assignment and the amount of weight that was going to be distributed among the people participating those weights should have actually exceeded the weight limits for both men and women. . So I could not get really a clear justification on why only women were removed from that work assignment and again people who are involved with that situation or who were familiar with that situation we're upset by that as well. . Yeah. . I mean, , Chelsea, , this isn't just the mosaic right in your reporting. . You discussed a twenty eighteen study by the National Science Foundation about the prevalence of sexual harassment and you noted according to the study the. . Two biggest predictors are settings where they're more men than women and I'm quoting environments that suggest a tolerance for bad behaviour I mean is this the situation that you saw when you were reporting on the Mosaic Mission? ? Right? ? So I spoke with various <hes> experts on a gender and policy in field science and in polar science and they all kind of pointed to leadership on these expeditions. That's . really a primary factor in kind of environment. . Is it going to be you know for the women participating in these expeditions and so it's really important from what I've been told by these experts to have a leadership that is prepared to deal with issues of sexual harassment or discrimination. . If they should come up leadership that's trained to deal with these kinds of issues that's train to prevent these kinds of issues from coming up in the first place. . Leadership, , that sets very clear rules and boundaries at the start of an expedition for what will be tolerated and what will not be tolerated and I think that really does speak to what went wrong on academic fed off. . You know there was a dress code that was enacted midway through the cruise. . It was a surprise to everybody it was communicated in a really kind of vague and distressing an alarming way. . Harassment incident that arose that was kind of it'd be swept under the rug a little bit at the time may or may not have influenced the dress code. . So. . Yes. . I think this really all speaks to kind of a lack of preparation to prevent these kinds of issues arising in the first place and from dealing with them <hes> in the proper ways when they do arise. . Yeah. . Yeah and you know Chelsea I'm wondering what is the response to your piece? ? Ben So far <hes> since you wrote. . The response to the peace has been mainly very positive so far. . So I've heard from a lot of scientists researchers both in polar science and in other fields. . Who have been very supportive and who have said you know this is an issue that happens all the time that's very common but that needs to be talked about more and so you know it's very important to kind of bring these issues into the light and. . It has been. . It's it's not been great to hear that there are so many other people who have had similar experiences. . You know that's that's disappointing and distressing to hear but you know. . But a lot of people have said you know this, , this is very common and it's good that we're starting to talk about this more do. . Yeah. . I mean you mentioned Chelsea some moments of solidarity from the participants aboard the most recent being this unified statement responding to your article signed by the large majority of Grad, , students on board. . Did this. . You know inspire any hope for you about the future of the this type of field research. . It did absolutely, , it did that statement basically said that it was disappointing to see rules and policies on board. . The ship that might imply that women should have to change the way they dress to manage the behavior of men or policies that might limit women's involvement in fieldwork, , and so you know the students know in their statement that they were. . You know grateful for. . The opportunity to go on the expedition into work with leading polar scientists in the field. . But this was something that that was not acceptable to them and you know it wasn't courage to read that statement and to just kind of see the interest in the concern about these kinds of issues from you know what's going to be the next generation of polar scientists and I do think that this is something that will hopefully <hes> Garner a little bit more attention inspire some change in the future. .
"harassment" Discussed on The Signal
"That recent report from Demon Rights Commission, respect at work. It doesn't mince words on this subject. It says that the problem is firstly it's entirely preventable, but also the aren't legal and regulatory system is simply no longer fit for purpose said they're really strong words and one of the changes. It recommends imposing. Ease a positive. Judy or I guess in Layman's terms an obligation. That employers not just across the board actually need to prevent sex discrimination sexual harassment migration. Can you walk us through that idea? And where it comes from I, can walk you through the idea. It's a really significant audience, and the fact that it's being flagged in this really significant importance being published by the Human Rights Commission is important. I would not that these has been an ongoing critique of our antidiscrimination find what and basically the critique about existing antidiscrimination. Liz, of which sexual harassment laws are a subset is that we have a complaint advice system that is reactive. and to boil that down, what that really means is puts the onus on individuals who've been the subject own this kind of conduct to bring a complaint board, and that's I, suppose particularly a problem, because presumably if they found themselves in this position, they're likely to be locking power in the workplace. Anyway, exactly because of what we know about those particular power dynamics, it really really adds an extra baugh complainants to jump them. Okay, and in terms of what would change for employers. It's twofold it's the obligations, and also how those are enforced with the complainant says look. You didn't provide a Sifi of at the moment. The employer can say well. We did X. Winds it. It's it's it's reactive. Oppose any judy shifts that honest so that it's proactive just to kind of make crystal clear what you're saying. It sounds like at the moment. Employers do have an obligation on some level to prevent harassment from taking place. How how would that be modified? What has been suggested in the respected were report is that the human rights. Commission begin functions of assessing compliance with the positive judy and for enforcement. This means potentially giving the commission power to undertake assessments of. Of the extent to which an organization has complied with the Judy an issue, compliance notices and enter into agreements in relation to undertakings and apply to to a court for an order requiring compliance with Judy. Okay, so it's about going in ahead of time and making sure the workplace is doing everything it can to prevent harassment right, and also strengthening those obligations considerably well beyond where they are now. How exactly you prevent bad behavior, though ease a little tricky. I mean what are the kind of practical steps like? If you're an employee and you sit down with Bush pipe tomorrow and go okay I want to take these seriously. How do I do it? What a piece on the which is paper? It's a really complex pace. There isn't just one one simple answer, but certainly diversity in the workplace so that it's not a completely homogeneous place is caught of that and valuing perspectives having policies in relation to complaints in sexual harassment. One thing that's often a real red flag is if an employer says all no, we don't have any sexual harassment in his workplace and suggests that actually the complaint mechanisms on sufficient will look different in different work places, but there are consistent themes, and it's about having policies. And procedures in place so that complaints can be made. It's about making clean that sexual harassment is unacceptable in the workplace. It's about making clear that what safety which encompasses our freedom from sexual harassment is an absolute priority from the employer's perspective. Would the kinds of changes being proposed. Make it easier for employees to sue their bosses to sue. Their employers where they felt that the bosses had failed to do enough to prevent harassment against them. Yes it would make it easier to to bring a complaint of that night shop, and I would emphasize that. That is not bad thing. One of the most significant concerns to come out of repatriating Faris reports is that the vast majority of people who are subject to sexual harassment do not make complaints and. That has consequences in terms of leading sexual harassment unchecked in the workplace. So. That's the guts of this idea. It's giving the Human Rights Commission, the power to check up on workplaces and strengthening the obligations of the employer to prevent harassment rather than just respond to it, and that's all fairly abstract, so we wanted to find out what difference it might make in real world scenarios. Would these changes that are being proposed make a difference in the instance where the employer themselves is the person who is the Harasser, yes, so depending on the business structure, if the employee a- and the alleged harasser a one in the same. Yes, this model does potentially improve the experience for the complainant because of the enforcement powers that it gives the commission. In terms of assessing compliance with within a positive. Judy I guess the other thing that springs to mind is the open secret scenario. I think most people. If you've had a couple of jobs, you've been in a scenario where these happens where everyone seems to know about a person's bad behavior, but there's no official complaint. Being made whether there's this positive judy that you describe what would happen there would it means that the employer would have more power. Power to to act in fact, possibly, even an obligation to do something about the problem, despite the fact that they hadn't noticed specific complaint that that had been take united. That's exactly what it would do. So I noted when we he stories that refer to particular harassers and reconduct, thing and open secret, and certainly doesn't reflect positively on those professions that are affected and certainly the ice doesn't reflect positively on the High Court illegal proficient more broadly. Yes you're absolutely correct. So in terms of having a open sacred, so having concerns about bringing an individual complaint, the idea, the concept of of the imposition of positive Judy Daza some of those concerns in that one gives it empowers employees. Because of that wasn't judy's to really push back and act, because it's quite clear that let's they legal responsibility, it gives them effectively the shield of the law. We must act because as we must act eight. Also the commission power will potentially I again. All of this is just a proposal to assess compliance.

"harassment" Discussed on Good Code
"Forms of harassment. Trolling in cold offensive names being stalked being docked. So having your personal information revealed what what did you find was the most common and pervasive form of harassment in these communities so we found that sixty seven percent of respondents. Were recall defensive. Names fifty seven percent were targets of trolling sort of active attempts to interfere with someone's play and then let me talk about a severe harassment. We have some lower numbers but they're not significantly lower right fifty percent half of folks experienced some form of discrimination discrimination in an online game within that thirty eight percent of players were discriminated against because of their gender Thirty five because they were LGBTQ to thirty one because they are African American twenty four percent because they were lat next nineteen percent of both Muslim and Jewish players rolled that they were discriminated against. Because as of their identity which is interesting because how would the people that communicate with them know that means that they're going to some intimate details about their life communicate so I think one of the things that I hear here in qualitative research in this area is that women and people of Color when they speak on the Mike in Various areas game settings on the people who are playing with them make certain assumptions about their voice right and it may be that may be corrected may not be and the same is true of other identities as well but I think what we find is what I hear repeatedly from folks when I talked to them about this. Is that people decide. I JUST WANNA play this game like it's not worth it for me to speak in this space and so they are literally silencing themselves because because of Hate and discrimination in these spaces have been that they've heard of or that they've experienced themselves. I think it depends right right. I think there are. There are games which gained a reputation for us and Community and so people know going in the being who I I am. I may not want to speak on the Mike but also I think it's unfortunately a lot of folks from experience who start gaming at a young age and had this experience not infrequently frequently some of them would choose to continue playing by themselves and some of them would quit the game yes there specifically in the survey bay both. How did this affect that? The ways in which they play games. And how did it affect them sort of personally right and so we found that Thirty eight percent of respondents. Instead they managed who they play with they don't trust in the game system itself to match them up with somebody who makes them feel safe and so they play with their friends or only people that they've vetted somehow and I think the the next assisted is something that I think. The game industry really should pay attention to which is the nineteen percent of folks. Who responded said they? They quit playing certain games because of harassment. Something I've heard from internal advocates at game companies. Is that one of the key ways in which they have to sort of sell addressing harassment and hate in online games in their companies is by making the business case that this is a barrier to growth that that if you have people who are who feel like your games are toxic with the communities are not healthy. They don't feel safe and they quit playing the Games. That's going to keep your game him from becoming commercially successful Sherry. So you look at fifteen different games in your survey they're very different. So there's a first person shooters Games Strategy Games sports simulators. Basically you picked the most popular ones the way you pick them. Did you notice any difference since in behavior or depending on the Games content or do we see that it's very independent from the content per se. So I think this is where we get into so the limits of surveys raid. Were asking people tell us what games you blade. Tell us your experience. We're not actually in this forum looking deeply flee. Into what form does this take in an online game space how is harassment even between two different shooter games right out. What is how is harassment in fortnight different from harassment and overwatch let alone across different genres right? We don't that's why I really think there needs to be More research in this area area one of the other findings that I found and others found really troubling was. We looked at Extremism in this information in online games and we found that this is an area where there has been a lot of coverage about like extremists online games. And they're using it as a recruiting place. But the actual evidence of that I think is is hard to gather and I guess I haven't really seen any numbers attached to that phenomenon But we found that from our survey results twenty three three percent of people were exposed to white supremacist ideology. Online Games is another area. Where is this recruiting is? It's just the normalization of white supremacy embassy. We don't know from the survey right and they really we need more More and deeper research in this area to really understand right now there are certain certain social media platforms that share data with researchers like twitter and read it You're able to run some experiments or do some work on those platforms form because they share data with researchers and the public At present there really isn't any game. That does that for obvious reasons. I mean they're they're also a user privacy concerns with all of this stuff but there are and there have been and other platforms to show the way to share data without while addressing those concerns Levy. Leave the impression that I had him in you. Selecting very different types of games is that you wanted to show in a way that it's not content related yep absolutely. I think there's been a lot of research that has disproven the notion That shooting video games leads to real world shootings right and so this is another her. I think way to get that same supposition which is is not just The shooting games where people are being harassed or being hateful L. or discriminated against folks. It's Card Games IT Strategy Games. It's sports games shooters. It's all of the above and so you were just talking about extremists speech and you were talking about white supremacy but also you just mentioned this information that I found really interesting reports that you say that a lot of the gamers also so reported that they were exposed to information on Vaccines Yawning the Holocaust Holocaust denial on nine eleven so a lot of the traditional conspiracy theories. But it's. It's something that we're used to seeing on facebook or twitter or but we don't really necessarily think that this would have been in those online chat chat suspiciously when people are playing a game. What would be talking about vaccines? So did that. Surprise you at all. was that bigger than you expected. or I mean maybe there's a little bigger than we expected. But it didn't surprise me and I think if further illustrates the point that online games are social spaces. We expect these things to happen in social spaces like facebook and twitter by by these online games are just as a social spaces. I guess one of the things that that I point to is if you look at. I think it's facebook's books terms of service in two thousand six and you look at Ford night today there's sort of turned the service around harassment are almost identical and so in two thousand six outside of academia. I don't think people were thinking. Oh in ten years you know. FACEBOOK is going to be a big part of the twenty six election. They weren't thinking in two thousand seventeen. Oh facebook is going to be implicated in genocide right. Let's say we have ten years right. How do how do we keep the same story from not repeating itself? How do we history from that happening happening again? Given that we know all these things about how digital social spaces worked a lot of the problems that are facing. Online Games are very similar to the ones that are facing social media That's very interesting. Let's wrap this with talking about what we can do. And how can the Industry the game companies alleviate this whole problem problem. How can the tackle this you make a bunch of recommendations in your report? What's for you? The main things that they shouldn't could do one is they should really invested best in and develop content moderation for voice Chad. And you're working on that right. You're helping them on that year. I mean we're we're discussions with a bunch of different folks who are working on that and trying to to help where we can like. I said social media has been working on this pretend plus years. This happened this week. Actually take talk which is not an older our social media platform. It's just a couple of years. Point updated their community guidelines to address Holocaust denial all sorts.

"That's what she said. Yes wow that is really hard you really think you can go all day long. Well you always left me satisfied and smiling. So that's what she said. I look at John. Do you see how he puts his hand in front of his face when he was starting to laugh. Yes for sure. Yeah that I mean that. That is just Steve because he is a master he is such a master at like any kind of like big emotional moment. We've talked about how it's really hard to fake laugh laugh. Yeah it's harder than fake crying out for you. One of the best at the fake laugh. Sure so we skipped something that I definitely want to go back to okay. Hey what when. Michael Crashes Toby's presentation and he walks in with the blow up doll. Do you remember the days on days of those guys trying to figure out which blow up doll should be the blow up doll. Oh yeah this is so it was like should she have on an outfit it. Should you be wearing underwear. Should she be wearing a bikini. There had a variety of blow up dolls. This is a weird thing about working on a television show. Oh or in a movie or anything are the really just very matter of fact discussions about odd things. I remember seeing our props master master and Greg and I think it must have been. BJ and Ken Corpus but Lincoln. There was a group of people looking at different blow up dolls and having in a very matter-of-fact discussion about what is funniest. There was one that had more Open mouth I remember that one that was that we nixed that one. It was so off putting. Yeah but the other thing too is we'd walk on set and backstage we would have props and things and I remember walking past like five live blowup dolls every morning for like a week. It was like what is our life and then Michael has a lot of comedy with that. Blow up doll. I love that part when we're jumping around here but when Pam's mom does finally come in and Michael Walks out of his office and like chuck sit out the door statement but also in the scene with John. It's hiding writing up on top of his credentials and Jim has this talking head with the beloved also. The dog got a lot of play in. This episode is very important that we pick the right one. The bit of a character that blood was going to be featured in those conversations were warranted. Okay something else. I want to mention unrelated to the blow up doll when Michael takes over the sexual harassment. Seminar there is a great deleted scene where Michael Goes on this runner. Did you see it. Says it's about him and Pam and I remember shooting the scene and I couldn't get through in the bathtub thing. No not the balcony thing. This was a different runner where Michael says all right take for example Pam dating and I say that would never happen. He Goes No. It's happening Pam dating and I'm like I'm engaged like Roy died and like even still and he's like then I would kill. So you know Roy and Pam are both dead look at what sexual harassment seminar got US funny actually did see that in a montage. That is is hilarious. Yes and then just Michael just like really pushing this lake hypothetical situation where he pam dating and that comes up every once in a while every once in a while. There's a little thing where Pam has to deal with Michael's hypothetical but there's a world where dating. There was clearly a time he had a crush crush on you. I guess just gave up and what about in that same scene. Phyllis Line where she asks. You have to disclose one night stands they talk about you have to report a relationship to HR and she goes All relationships even a one night stand. Yes what is she talking about a a previous one night stand or future one. I don't know but but Don Johns look to camera as Jim when she says that is so gold. Those good acid suggest look to camera. Let's talk about my favorite. Toby seen what's that at the end of Toby Seminar. He says if you have any questions you can come speak to me. And white goes to him mm-hmm and they have that big long conversation. Yes where Dwight is basically asking about female anatomy and sex. It starts around twelve minutes. I have it on a card. A A lot of people asked about that scene was it scripted. Was that improvised. So when Dwight asks whereas the clitoris that is where the scene was supposed to end so everything after that those were all rains improvisations and they shot. That scene for about two hours showed up for so long and also a policy toby improvising as well yes and I thought he had such a great line when he was like well. You know when you're both more comfortable you know. He has this great line and I wrote who. Who is Dwight asking the advice for right? Is this the beginning of Dwight and Angela. I wondered the same thing and people pointed this south. Dwight seems very comfortable around women in hot girl. He doesn't seem to have any of these hang-ups necessarily and then now suddenly in this episode. He's revealing maybe the truth. which is that? He doesn't know so many things about women. Well I also think that he might actually have a woman common. Finally who might be interested in doing those things with him perhaps and he's realized he doesn't have the skill set for it I think that's what it is. Oh Angela this is the first episode where we finally see the real outside of the under Mifflin that we will come to know and love. Oh when Michael goes down to get jokes yes when he goes down to meet the warehouse guys we'll you see it the BC the parking lot. Yeah when Ryan Takes Todd Packer down but then you really early see him come down through the lobby and outside and around the corner and he's talking to all the warehouse guys. I thought that was so cool. I did too. I thought it was great. So the point of that scene because I was texting with BJ about this. The point of that scene was that Michael would go down to ask for jokes and then the guys is in the warehouse would actually start sexually harassing Michael Bray. So that's the point. They start commenting on his appearance and his pants says lack of pack and all that sort of stuff and yet somehow this does not land on Michael he learns nothing from being the recipient of harassment. It just he's just frustrated did they didn't give them a good joke. But then later all those same warehouse guys are called up to the conference room and they have to watch a sexual or harassment training video. But did you notice. It's all those guys and Kevin Yes. Well here's what I think. I think Kevin is kind of like that teenage kid. Who If he if there's any chance he might see someone in Abroa- oh maybe side boob? He's he's in that he's is in that he's the one that does the milk joke about your mom like he's kind of like I feel like the kid who is like excited to maybe see anything. Go Oh down. Well I think that sexual harassment video is amazing. We shot that. That's not a real sexual harassment. Video Jol wrote in and asked did the actors actors in the sexual harassment video. No they were auditioning for a Sitcom or did they think it was just an educational video. That's an awesome question. They knew that they were going to appear on the office but they were told to pretend like they were making a real educational videos. They did a phenomenal job. Those guess actors were amazing. They were amazing and we shot that in in the actual writers offices are. I found it hilarious. That when Michaels in the scene with Jan and the corporate lawyer I feel like this is the first time Michael realizes that he's upper management and he's so proud so proud so proud himself because he's hired James P. Albani. The guy from the bus stop stopped his lawyer. I love. That's actually. That's a really great scene to watch if you WANNA like nerd out on the camera work and the the way that the camera helps tell the story on the office because that whole entrance of Michael's lawyer the way Michael's lawyer looks directly at camera and gives a little plug for. His business is pretty great but the camera working not seen as really incredible also also in that scene. Toby where he sitting. He's not been invited to sit sort of in the in the circle. Yeah he's off against the wall. It's a great scene to watch. Just watch toby until we have all seen already delicious and toby has a great snarky moment in that scene. Because you know John's like like Michael or are you going to have to watch the video again. And he's like I watched the video until he goes. He talked through most of it. Yes toby toby throwing him under the bus. So now we finally have to talk about the scene where Michael stands up to todd packer Otherwise known as the Boehner seen the Boehner in Todd Packer is making this joke. Doc about someone attending a NYMPHOMANIAC convention. Yeah and all the GALS are like perfect. Ten's except for this one gal and he points to fill us and then Kevin says like Phyllis and then my villa looks really sad. Oh so sad so hurt so hurt and it's awkward first of all. Do we need a joke about a NYMPHOMANIAC convention. Todd Packer thank you very much. and Michael Sees that Phyllis is hurt and he says that that was inappropriate. He's he's he's says something but then todd packer challenges him. And he's like I mean Kevin Kevin you should not say those things about Phyllis and then he goes on this whole speech about how Phyllis is great and how he loves Phyllis. She's like a grandmother to them and she says I mean Michael Were the same age we went to high school together and they love that and that fact comes back to haunt Michael all the time. She is constantly reminding him in the series that they went to high school together. It's a really sweet sweet scene and he hugs Phyllis and then he says the only thing he's afraid of is getting a boner a boehner and then Phyllis 's face her reaction is what made got it for me. It made that whole scene. It really did. It really did and I think that there was this way where I don't know do you think Michael's redeemed in that moment a little bit because he stands up for his group a little bit he does. I think it's it's definitely the first time he has stood up to todd packer and you can tell because when you see todd packer's face he was like. Oh Oh man. They really got to you and Michael's like no. I got to them like whatever that means but I think it's the first time he stood up to him and even though it's a very small way I I think it's that moment once again where this is our writers trying to give Michael a little bit of a growth moment. What Angela you just referred to the Boehner seen as the scene where the writers give Michael a little bit of growth moment no? That's that's perfect okay. Now let's talk about the scene with Pam's mom. We set a little bit about this earlier. Angela you expressed your disgust that this is her first visit. Okay I just awesome saying like where have you been mom. That's all I wake. I get it I get it but there is more to say here. Yeah so first. Of all PAM's mom was played by Shannon Cochran and a lot of people wrote in and said what the heck is up with. Pam's mom why is she played by one person in this episode and then another person later on the show I will tell you we wanted channon Cochran to come back. We cast her as PAM's mom. We intended for her to always play. Pam's mom but then we didn't need Pam's mom for really long time Shannon. Got A theater contract. She was a touring theatre actress with rain..

"One of my favorite scenes in this episode Angela. Yes is when I have to. They both involve involved. Toby Oh yeah okay. The first is when toby reveals he has to do a review of the sexual harassment policy. One thing I noticed was I. I felt like toby was super excited. That he was going to get to run thing for a change and that Michael had no choice. I don't I just watched the scene a couple couple times and I felt like I could see this little like happy. Glint in Paul's I as he was explaining to Michael that he was going to do this period but I also noticed the toby's presentation happens in the bullpen. Yes it does not happen in the conference room. If I remember correctly it is because we've decided that Michael would allow him to have his presentation but not in the conference room not real space or no circumstances. Maybe I just made that up in my own head. Maybe it's true the other thing that was interesting to me that we'd never seen before his. Toby does a talking head in front of the vending machine in the break room. Oh Oh and that is not where are talking heads ever are. They're always in the conference room. Toby is clearly ever since he got thrown out of the conference has not been invited back into the conference room. I watched the deleted deleted scenes for this and there is a runner of Michael talking heads where he's just talking about how much he hates toby in different ways. My Gosh. It's so good. I have to say for anybody out there who is wishing there was more office or wishing you could watch more of the office you actually can. It is is the deleted scenes. I have been enjoying them so much. So really look for them because just these runner of talking heads for Michael were wonderful. Yeah I saw awesome. That were pretty amazing and I wonder out there. If they're the websites are available. Oh Yeah you guys won an Emmy Award for we wanted. I remember that for the accountants. Yeah Yeah I really want some more pop tart. I have it sitting next to me but I'm afraid it's going to be really loud. We can take a pop tart break if you need to Angelo. You want us to take a break so so you can have some pop tart.

"I got mine in Navy. I love it I love it. I love that. And we're back talking about these sexual harassment episode. Here we go here. We go buckle in everyone as they say in re watching this assode Angela. I was very uncomfortable. Yeah I was more squirmy during this than diversity day. Yeah well yeah I mean. I don't know they're both equally squirmy for me but then squirmy during hot girl. I think that I had forgotten. How really cringe e and uncomfortable? The show can get some. Oh we pushed it. We pushed it to the line and then went over the line. How did this show get on the air? I mean I know this particular episode got on with a warning but in general what was going on you know I mean you know. I grew up overseas and I grew up with a lot of British British television and they definitely pushed the line and I think the show was in the spirit of the BBC version. And I don't know I oh I think like some of the cringing moments that you end up laughing. I don't know I I love it. I know that Kevin Reilly who was NBC. At the time was a huge champion for show. I really read it him with us. Sticking around he believed in US and there were a lot of people there who didn't get it and who didn't think at this was a good idea. No it's true. He fought for us. And when we finally won an Emmy for Best Comedy Ensemble. We all went backstage for photos. ddos in the guys the cast picked up Kevin Reilly up in the air. And that's the photo that was in the La Times because we all knew it. He put his his neck on the line for us. And I'll always be grateful to Kevin for that. The episode begins with Michael Walking Up to Jim's desk to see if he has received his hilarious areas e mail forward. Michael has a talking head where he declares himself the King of forwards and he says that's how I'd like to do business. Yeah I have a funny story about a behind behind the scenes moment that happened on set while we were filming a big group seen in the bullpen talking about these e mail forwards. And there you were there was if they are everyone was there. Kelly was there still with an up to win the episode. Were Kelly becomes mindy exactly. That's that's what we need to look for. No so this says an episode that John Krasinski and I will never forget because he about fill out of his chair at nine minutes. Sixteen seconds you know. We're talking about the email forwards and Michael's really upset upset that they want him to stop doing this. And I say I hate them. You send me these filthy emails and you say for them to ten people are. You'll have bad luck right. Yes my line so we had been working on the scene for a while and then we went to lunch and we came back. That's always so hard to pick up a scene. Yes luncheon between. Yes yes and I think it was like around three o'clock in the afternoon. Everyone's real off at that time. Everyone's a little tired. People are a little bit more punchy. Yeah and we're in a big group seen gene. So here's the thing you should know about me. I was born in Louisiana. My family's from Texas and Louisiana. I have a really really hard time saying avowal in front of an L. L. and two times in my career on the office. They almost dropped a line because I could not say it one time they actually did. I'll save that story for later. Between Andy Bernard and myself. I couldn't say the line I just kept sounding like such a hillbilly that they just dropped the line but this line I said I hate them. You send me these filthy emails in John About fell out of his charity went. The South has arrived and House. Like what what. I didn't even hear it. He was like Angela and like eight of you turned and looked at me and at the same time. You're like you said filthy filthy and I said how how do you say it. And you're like filthy and I had to like really concentrate filthy filthy. 'cause I automatically want to say filthy filthy but but somewhere there's footage of me saying you send me these filthy emails in. John lost it. You and John had a great relationship on the show. You guys were big brother kid sister And it was so sweet. I loved your banter. I loved just. I don't know you guys were really cute. You not one another. I know he felt like my big brother. Even though he's like younger than me but he did he felt like my big brother. It's and he loved it. When I slipped into southern drawl? All he'd be like he loved it so next up. Todd Packer comes in the office and boy. Does Dave Kenner owner room when he enters enters that room yes. Dave told me last night on the phone he said Type Packer just comes in and blows up your world and then leave consequences mic drop. Yeah and then later. And then he's out I have a little bit about Dave. Oh tell me okay so dave told me. He actually auditioned for Michael Scott. Yes he'd known Greg Daniels else. For years he had done a pilot for one of Greg's Writers on King of the Hill. So he knew Greg for a long time and they brought him in for Michael Scott and he said anche inch. I was obsessed with the BBC version. And all I had in my head was Rakija Vase. That's I couldn't do it. Any other way he was doing a little bit of an impersonation personalisation of Ricky yes. I think a lot of people did that. That came in but Steve had not seen it and I think that really helped him kind of make his own person. Yeah Yeah but he told me when they brought him in for Todd Packer. He was so excited. Because yes it was based on finci right in the BBC versa. Yes so in the BBC version David. Brent has a friend named named Chris finch and they call him FINCI and he is the todd packer of the British show. Basically it's just this one-sided best friendship and if you can believe Chris finch is worse than Todd Packer. British show. He you think it can't get worse than Todd Packer. If you're looking for that check out the British version Asia exactly. Dave said that he was so excited to come in for todd packer because they were just like Dave do whatever and he just was like. Oh I got this. I got this us here and Steven just on Anchorman. We talked about so he knew it was just going to be playtime. I asked Dave I was like what what is something you remember about that first day. Ask Todd Packer. And he said I remember the writing. I remember reading that script and thinking how fantastic it was an. I thought when you have of writing this good anything is possible. I can go anywhere because what I have is so solid and I said did you improvise any of that. He said honestly I. I can't remember because I remember thinking the writing was so good. He said if you see things that fills spontaneous he said the physicality of Todd Packer is very him is him. Yeah you know like all the stuff he does with Michael the physical stuff. That's just bringing life to todd packer. But he really just was just blown blown away by how good the writing was I remember when he came in. I was legitimately shocked and stunned. Why well our the show had been very quiet? Oh Right L.. Right he's just a burst of energy and he was so loud and so a lot of my reactions to him are real. They're like what what what why are we. Why are we shouting? What is because a lot? This oh wow. Because I'm seventy five. I'm Jenna Fisher being so load road. I asked Dave because Michael has a line where he says that todd packer is his. BFF best friend forever. I saw and I said good. Dave how does Michael like. How is he best friends with todd? Packer he said something. I thought was so sweet. Actually in just a insightful into Michael he said Oh Angela he said Michael is so innocent and naive almost childlike. He doesn't get a lot of what todd packer is. And how as such a good observation. He's like a little brother looking up to someone and maybe somewhere down the road. You'll see how how inappropriate. But he's just in this. Childlike enamored phase. Oh I love that Dave CAC news. Okay now it's time to talk about that famous gym talking talking head with the phrase what has two thumbs and hates. Todd Packer this I alright. That joke of like what has two thumbs and likes blank. Think and also the very famous line for this episode. That's what she said. Those are not original jokes. We did not make those up. BJ Novak did did not write them. Bj said those are things that he just heard in college as a college student and he kind of dusted them off and brought them back to this episode and then they took look off. I mean especially. That's what she said. I mean well that makes sense because todd packer is sort of like a bratty. FRAT guy. Yes and that's what she said had actually we been on. SNL Chevy Chase had a bit where he said it was in Wayne's world but the origin of that joke is a British joke but the phrase isn't that's what but she said what is it raises as the actress said to the Bishop. Just roll off the tongue. Yes but it dwindled in popularity it was kind of no longer in use until ricky surveys brought it back. He used to start saying he's to say as the actress said to the Bishop but it never quite was the same as that's what she said. Okay this is really off topic but you know I'm I'm going to have a she shed for myself making a Home Office so I do. It's all Utah I know. I know I'm like constantly online and on pinterest looking at little sheds that I can make into a Home Office and I've started the process but I posted a photo out of me with a shed and a fan wrote in.

Yeah maybe you WanNa prescreen this one. Yeah this subject matter alone I I know well. They had to walk a line when they were writing. And making this episode. And we're GONNA walk the line today talking about it Angeles. You're eating pop tart. Yes I am. It's the brown sugar Around Sugar I didn't know cinnamon brown sugar. It has some Brown icing on it. This is a cinnamon brown sugar. Pop tart am I right guys in the guests the cinnamon brown sugar pop tart. This has been a sticking point in my friendship with Angela for a long time. which is that she can eat things? Like pop tarts donuts. pancakes aches for fast. It's about time for me to tell you. I also had to muffins before the popular. It is all right guys. Today is sexual harassment. Season two episode to this was written by. BJ Novak and directed by Ken. You've probably heard those names before. I want to point out. In my first I fast fact that. BJ Novak wrote diversity. Day and Ken Corpus directed it so they already had a little bit of a great back and forth. Yes they are paired together again. I Guess Greg assigned BJ the script of sexual harassment. Because of the good job he had done on diversity day on touchy subject Yes sir. Ken was asked to direct it. I think it makes sense. Ken Qantas is such a gentleman BJ Is so smart. He's able to walk that lines so well. I think this was the perfect coupling. I due to rain this episode to life. Here's a quick summary For this episode. When an upper level manager is let go because of sexual harassment corporate requires everyone in the company to undergo sexual harassment? Training Michael's crude friend. Todd Packer comes into the office. It starts harassing everyone. kind of a twofer there. There you go in years Later we would have our own seminars that NBC would have a Sit-in we've talked about out this and they would use clips from this episode of what not to do at work and other episodes and other episodes were like. Oh it's us again. Oh Yeah we should. No one should be doing okay. Okay good and also after reading the script the network originally wanted to air sexual harassment as our season premiere to. It's probably good that we eased into that one. It is because this brings me to my second fast packed. which is that this episode originally aired with a warning? It did yes which is very unusual for network television. How I didn't know they aired within a warning before the episode that said this episode contains adult content and subject matter? Oh ooh yeah and you know why all right parents this is where you're going to want to start Maybe maybe you're on their mouths earmuffs on the kids it it all came down to the word boner yes with Phyllis Phyllis the scene with Phyllis at the end when Steve says something like now. I'm just afraid I'll get a boner the network wanted had to change it to. I'm afraid I'll get a swing and they. BJ World Yeah. I see let's go way. Let's get yeah and BJ fought to keep Boehner in the episode. The warning was their way of having a compromise. We we were surprised that clitoris made it in the episode. I mean there's a whole runner up doll Iranian. I write your Pam supposed to kiss a blow up doll. There's to me many red flags here a lot of stuff happening but they got they got stuck on Boehner they got stuck on Boehner away. There's too many that's what she says. In this yes. Oh Okay parades the drinking game this episode. While I don't condone that we've okay okay But even still even with the warning there was one network in in Kentucky that refused to air this episode. Oh really yeah. So we sorry Kentucky. We got pulled off the air. You can watch it on Netflix. Right now folks and Kentucky. That is so funny to me because the word boner so he could go back. There is so funny phyllis his reaction to the word boner yes. It wouldn't be the same way same. It wouldn't be the same for me. What made that moment? Funny was Phyllis her look to Michael when he said it was. Ho Larry Yes so okay. Moving on we can talk more about that scene later. I'm K- we can really. I have a lot to say about that scene. Oh Gosh more okay my third it fast fact is that we get todd packer or finally he. Todd Packer in the flesh comes into the office. Played by Dave Okay so I have known Dave Maybe sixteen years. I've known him a really long time. We met back at an problematic. He had taken second city in Chicago in and he knew Steve from second city and Nancy. Steve's wife Nancy I called Dave last night and I was like Dave. We're GONNA do sexual harassment. WHO's like Jeb? People will come in the booth. I was like we do. Dave can you come in tomorrow. And he's like non-working cake and then I said Oh Dave. Can I record our conversation. He's like yeah sure. Tell me when you're ready to go. Yes it's great so I I did the swipe up on my iphone. UK Your flashlight is sure you know underneath by your phone. Okay there's a Lo- record Jordan. Okay so I hit the record button like let's do this. I feeling like this isn't going where we're hoping. Okay Dave and I talked for half an hour. Yeah I have thirty minutes. Okay of me filming my screen. Yeah with no sound. Okay okay. It's a record button house supposed to know it doesn't record sound. I don't know where to to begin with this one hundred years old it well. It's just that that's sort of like when my mom wrote me my first email she she called me on the phone and said why. Haven't you responded to my email that I sent you and I said well I never got your email. What email address did you send it to? And and she said I sent it to you. I sent to Jenna and I said I don't I don't understand. And she said I opened the email box and it said to and I wrote Jenna. She just Antony to Jenna. That is very similar to what you've done here. The record button on your phone a little bit. Come on wait a minute I kinda anyway. Whatever whatever guys the long story short here is Dave? Thank you so much for talking to me last night for half an hour at I broke down everything we talked about. Because it didn't record you do have a gazillion note cards. I had to move seats because she has so many. Not So many note cards. I have lots of little fun tidbits from day. But I'll save those us. We go okay. That's great something I'd like to expand on is what you were saying about. Steve Carell starting at second city in Chicago. I think a lot of people don't realize the long journey that a lot of us took before we landed on office and in particular Steve Carell He was doing comedy in in Chicago on second city for a very very long time and then he and his wife Nancy. They moved to New York City because she had an audition for Saturday night. Live and she got got it. She did her in day. Were on Saturday night live together so they had known each other for a really long time in journey through quite a bit and Steve was really excited. He's actually the one who pitched Dave to Greg for todd. Packer he was really like you. GotTa cast Dave Character. They had just done anchorman together. Her and he just knew that they'd be off to the races. And it'd be so much fun and they're amick. An anchorman was amazing. Their chemistry there was amazing. But it makes sense because they had been schlepping through Chicago to New York to La together doing comedy for close to fifteen years. Oh Yeah they've known each other for so long and and you were in those circles. Angela I never got into that. I never did the comedy Improv. Sketch comedy thing. Yes I admit Dave years ago at Improv Olympic out here in in Los Angeles it was called I o West and he was part of a phenomenal Improv. Show called Beer Shark mice. These guys were amazing. They were like the best of the best I it would sell out. It would be standing room only the they were amazing. It was Mike Coleman Pat Finn. Neil Flynn and Pete Halmi Dave Dave CNOR and then also Paul Allen Court. They were just phenomenal. Wow what show it was. It was great. So listen. If you're an Improv nerd out there these guys are the best of the fast I was working in the light booth. I was in charge of calling their lights and I was really intimidated. Because the person in the booth makes it fade to black. When you feel that the this show has wrapped up? So what kind of on you to sign me in here. I am like you're like a person lowering the curtain at the end of the show and I'm just like a Newbie Newbie at the theater like I'm like really you're going to trust me. It was no one else and so I was calling lights and I really felt like the show wrapped up and it was about thirty minutes and black and they were like what and then afterwards Dave and everyone was like Ange. We had a whole another round onto go. You call the lights way too soon and I was like I am Swiss. I'm so sorry I felt so horrible. All right so it's the next week and Dave comes up to me in says anche let us go about forty five minutes tonight. I'm like okay Dave got it. Set my timer. You've got a timer Jenna of you thank you yes yes. I didn't want to get it wrong so anyway. I'm up in the booth at thirty nine minutes. I thought they had their out. Jonah Okay I did not pull light used no no and then they went to forty five minutes and then it was almost an hour I did I did. I was too nervous. I don't know I froze. They're probably just out. They're just flailing on stage. It was getting awkward. Dave expect stage and someone had left. I don't know a spare tire to like a truck or jeep. It was enormous so dave gets the giant tire and he rolls it across the stage into the audience. And he's like Vassar. Show you guys that it was like. Oh crap did you win. The tire went across the stage. Did you finally go to black. I did okay. So you'll get you got his signature on it. I got dave of the tire got it and I went backstage. We all started cracking up and they still talk about it. They still talk about the tire. Anyway I just love those guys so much and believe it or not. I did call lights for them a a few more times. They got their official person. But that is how I met. Dave Kushner didn't Greg Daniels go to a few of those shows. I mean maybe not Dave's in particular alert but I don't know Greg loved supporting like small Improv theaters and a lot of improvisers ended up on our show. So I know Rainn Wilson would make make fun of me but I'd be like Oh you know whoever actor showing up I did a Sunday. Show with him. He'd be like. Did you do Improv. It they may end up like Yes rain well rain and I were the two classically trained theater act. Oh don't we know. Oh don't we know it. I heard quite a bit about it all right before we're Things take a turn here. Maybe we.

"In fischel memo, Thursday, Google said it will end its requirement for employees sexual harassment claims to be handled in private arbitration, a move that comes one week after thousands of workers walked out of Google's offices in a global protest here to talk more about what is just the latest in a series of ethical dilemmas on Google's plate as of late is the Wall Street Journal's Douglas MacMillan joining us from San Francisco, Douglas, so you know, it's been a series of ethical issues. Google has had to sort through lately to say, the least it came to a crescendo last week what with the global walk out. So can we take this official policy change as victory for the organizers is that a direct result of what happened it, certainly appears? So this walkout happened one week ago on Thursday of last week thousands of employees took to the streets took to the sidewalks outside of their buildings. Dozens of offices around the globe. And. Really they put together a good plan. They took took their message on social media and they supposedly had five very clear important demands for Google management. Now, all of those all five demands were not addressed in Google's policy changes. But I think you can definitely argue that he ones were met, and as you're saying that the rapid decisions that Google had to go through to change some pretty significant things about the way that they run their company is a sign of how seriously they took the message that you know, these employees are putting forward and maybe a sign that Google employees are setting kind of a model for the workforce of the future. If you are going to work for a company that sells working there as kind of, you know, this utopian you're going to help us change the world. Then maybe it's incumbent upon you to listen to those employees and to give them say and how you conduct your business. The the chain the big change they made what was an end to Google's forced arbitration apartment. Google had been wiring any victims of sexual harassment to settle those disputes out of court, particularly where Google in other large corporations who have these agreements, I enforce these agreements are who have more of an advantage. And there's less transparency into that process who goes doing away with that process. You know, the span of a week. These protesters got Google to change very significant policy. And I think that you know, you're gonna see other companies start to look at what happened in this kind of quick turnaround time and wonder if they should also get on board with changing their policies in wonder how they should listen up to their employees less be victim to a similar situation. So you know, like we said last week certainly pushed the issue of sexual harassment to the forefront. And this is a big start in a big decision on Google's part, but you know, Google has many ethical problems on its plate. There's a big China. Problem in all the flag. It's getting from doing business there any indication from. I know there's there was more addressed in this specific policy letter or anything we can glean from what might come that yet. As you say there are a lot of office shoes management is facing right now. China's big question Mark, we've been reporting a lot about data privacy concerns, and how those are getting more scrutiny in Washington, the policy change, Google management made are significant step in the right direction. However, I don't think anyone is under the allusion that they're going to change Google culture to change again tire company with ninety thousand people's culture takes gonna take a lot more time. And and a lot more careful planning and execution and and thoughtful in put from management and thoughtful listening by management in and what they've done wrong. There's a lot. There are a lot of reports. There have been stories in the past few weeks have been stories in the past few years, frankly about how top Google executives have set. A very bad example for how they can cut their own romantic interests and pursued their own interests, you know, during work hours and within close proximity to their offices that leadership set from the top. It sounds like from reporting trickle down to the rest of the organization where there are serious questions about, you know, whether or not there's a healthy workplace kind of culture right now, Google, this is not something that they can change overnight with the policy change..

"harassment" Discussed on Boss Files with Poppy Harlow
"Sexual harassment is a political course when somebody decides to harass you they don't ask you what political party you belong to before they do it and the same reasoning can be said for any member of congress who has a daughter unease or a granddaughter do they want them to go through what i went through and thousands of other women go through every single day the answer's no so the one thing i'm asking for is to take the secrecy out of it just take the secrecy allow the arbitration to be public because you know what that would do the pendulum it would equalise it between employee and employer and the other huge part of that equation is that once its public other women within that company also find out that somebody else has filed a complaint so then you're not alone either you're not thinking it's just me that did you feel up well of course but that's part of the problem of the secrecy is that you feel like you're alone because you don't really know if it's happening to anyone this is central to the way in which we are going to have people will be employed in this country because the way in which we resolve sexual harassment now is either in secret arbitration for settlements and both silence the women you sat down for a fascinating interview few months ago with my friend my colleague karel costello and you told her the eu challenge president trump and you say look this is a political you challenge though president trump to live up to his words on women and your words are show america your words are true six months ago or so has he done it not that i've seen yet what you want to see well he says that he respects women more than anyone else and wouldn't it be great if he actually signed the gretchen carlsson mandatory arbitration bill it got rid of secrecy.
